A CtEvaa DODGK.—For several days one
of the Chinese prisoners confined in the
county jail has been acting iu a peculiar
manner He would rave and talk so inco
herent! v that ills ft How countrymen could
uot understand him, and he also insisted
on making aa armor for his back out of
the tin di*!;'*« from *hieh the prisoners
rat, Yesterday Sheriff Cochrane
brought a lauacy charge against the
Chinaman ia the probate court, and
had hire up for examination, when I ntted
-tatea Attorney White discovered that the
('ninaman was one of the number held for
being unlawfully in the t'nited States, and
promptly tjuaahed the proc<«dings. The
Chinaman's insanity was likely simulated
and bat a clever dodge to get out of jail
and into an asvluaa, from which he might
l«e iliscbarge-t in a few weeks, thereby out
witting the Cnited States and holding his
unlawful residence here.

yesterday a! b;» office in this city **f ue

people who dart the report* of our deal
with the Northern probabjT forget the
well-kaowa fact that by it* charter the
Northern Pacific Railroad Company ha*
no power to baiid. operate or purchase a
braaclai line, aad that it* operation# ma«
beconfined aloae to it* own main r*>ad.
"Of coarse there U DO telling what might
happen.** added the seaator reeerauy.
"I sappoee if the Norther Pacific offered
as enongh money we would MS out to
them. It would be purely a busiaeat mat
ter: but I repeat that durine three year*
the Northern ha* made ao offer to as, nor
haw we to them.
"I cap tell you something that xaay be of
interest to the people of -eattle. Paring
the «everal weeks I have been inak -
Sag arrangements to raise money to begin
the <x>astruct:oa of the Bellingham bay i
road frt>m Seattle north. and I hive ererr
reason to think that my negotiations wit
be saeceasfal. Coasftraction wii! then be
Sis in Seattle inside of eight weeks.
"Many pe-->p.e have doubtieas wondered,
and many have inquired of me, whv wt
didn t begin the construction of theroid
from Seattle original:?-, iiuu-ad c! martins
ix.itb »tW!:*;cuowi at S«-w W.«;a;as

Whatcom will be a paying institution in it
self; second, the people of New W<'*:K;Dl
ter have subscribed to as a ea*h fub*idy of
si;jj,WO and a land subsidy of #.i4,00§
more and freedom from taxation for &.!
years; third, thit portion of the road is
much easier to construct, inasmuch as
there is a total elevation of but 140
feet between BelHngham bay and
t'raser river. The construction for the
first 40 miles from Seattle presents many
difficulties, because right at the edge of
the city we will hare to dig a 300CV-foot
tunnel through Lake Union hill at a coat
of rxo.ouo.
"When our 48 miles from Sew West
minster to Whatcom are finished, we will
be able to bond the road for 11,000.08 a
This money could be used In the con
struction of the road from Seattle north;
but I have peferred not to wait until those
funds can be negotiated, which will be
next fall; but 1 nave been arranging to
borrow the money on other securities,
and, as I said before, I have every reason
to believe 1 will succeed."
"l do not place any reliance in the (state
ment that the Ouioa Pacific railroad will
ran into Tacoma oTcr the track of the
Northern and probably into Seattle over
tbe Puget Sound Shore," soid Mi. T. H.
Tyndaie. president of the Puget Sound
Shore railroad yesterday. "It i« true that
for abont four yean there have been efforts
to unify the interests of the two transcon.
tfceaial routes, one of these attempt*
being the Joint lease of the road of the
Oregon Railway A Navigation Company;
but they have never Iteen successful,
though the two roads are yet very friendly
towards each other.
".Even if there were anything to the
statement about the Uniou Pacific lam
astonished that President Oakes should
have made the announcement so publicly.
That is not his usual custom."

To the Editok Heforring to the article
in last Sunday 's issue headed "A Church
Militant," 1 wish to enter a denial in gen
eral and particular so far as they relate to
me. It Is Dot true that the trouble t-egan
or ended (unfortunately it is not ended) in
my napopulanty. It is not true that nine
ty members of the church do not want me
while but about ten outside of mv own
family do. I told the cturvh publicly that
howevtr it might be brought about, if the
majority coula be induced to vote ;a re
pudiate their contract with me. these was
not money enough in Seattle to indnce me
to preach for them. Sot until I became
convinced that a majority of those who
would vote, would so vote, did 1 tender my
resignation. That was the i'th or 10th of De
ce tVr. I dul not preach from tha*. time
until after the secession of about tb mem
bers, which ha* since increased some but
j not to the number of ninety. A minority
"f the church and not a majority attempted
to secure tiie resignation of the remaining
officers, and because they could not do so
elected what they called other officers and
left tbechnrch. Thereupon the offlcereaud
church together did what the scripture
commands, i. e..withdrew the fellowship of
the church from the offenders for heresy
and disorderly conduct, sre Tit iu, 10-11.

uuauimously chosen (>astor for one year
from the Ist of January last. The state
ment of my claim about employment is
garbled and false. lam deprived of my
pulpit by violent, illegal and um riptura!
conduct. The public have this over my
own signature. It js not a cowardly stab in
the dark as is the attack on me. Retpect
fuilv submitted to the candid public.
7b tV Editor: Accompanying the report
to the City Council for the month of Feb
ruary. of Justice Soderberg, in a statement
charging me in effect •.* ith being derelict
in my duty in not arrestieg the gamblers,
and having them tried under the city ordi
nance, thereby turning the fines collected
into tic city treasurer. He does not state
openly and ia a manly way that 1 am the
person at whom the thrust is made, but by
innuendo and insinuations—the vilest and
most cowardly nay in which one man can
assail the character of another, either in
public or private life. This statement cer
tainly cornea with very bad grace from a
see of the peace and police judge who
has b»H u in office for two years, aad only
discovers on the eve of his well-merited re
tirement that the citv has been wronged
out of a few dollars m the way of tine*.
The <joestiou now will naturally ariae in
the mind of every thinking man who reads
thi< article. Is soderberg a knave or a fool*
If. daring his incumbency of the office by
which he was elected by accident for twe
years, he did not know the city was being
wronged in this particular, he is a fool, if
on the other hand, he knew of it and did
not try to prevent it then he is a knave,
and has diagraced the position which he
lam inclined to take the last named
Tie w of the question. Time and acain have
I called his attention to the fact that dail*
eases were being tried ia his court as terri
torial cases which should ha /e been tned
undet our city ordinances, and the fines
turned into the city treasury The city of
Scera had arrested the prisoners, the city
wa> feeding them pending their trial, and
Sodertwg still persisted in making terri
torial cases of them, in some instances at
the suggestion of the arreatiag officer, that
he might get his two dollar* and twenty
cents witness fees. Now. let me ask. who
it his accideacy. Judge Soderberg, that ia
his righteous iadigaation be accuses me of
wronging the city" I will t*H yon in as
Wrw words as p«>*:ble who he is He is "the
seff-aame man who was indicted bv the
grand jury at the May tern of the district
court on five different couata of charging
illegal fe«e as justice of the peace, and he
could justly have been indicted en 40 more
for th ? sania ofieae- He is the same indi
vidual who was indicted by the aame
grand jury ior keeping a saloon and >elliag
whisky an Sun Jay. at the same holding
the petition of president of a temperance

Thia is the rr.au who a»a*i'.a me fee not
it ng i«y duty towards the city. Well, a.l
i hart; to »ay so cotsclusioa is. that I am
sorry that he aat so fooi.ahly left himself
open to attack. I was ia hopes that the
laser >iav s of ht» official life might be spent
in peace, aad that he woald s:tk into that

Nehring, who believes that *it has

many attempts to domesticate wolves i

The oddities of human nature <»ften present perplexing problems
to him who makes a study c*f them. A man misses the ©no opportun
ity to make life a success by -beer incredulity in hi? own good fortune
j when the favorable crisis foe decisive action appears. The future vft
have something better, something more clearly certain, be think*,and
*> the aaTe that only roils up once in the rawer of a lifetime passes,
the force of its onward movement Sorevwr lost to him whom it couht
hare Landed on a sire vantage point.
The thrifty and industrious housewife often misses a - plendid
chance of cutting down family expenses by a lack of promptitude in 'Si
taking advantage of low prices on the very articles which, if bought
later, will cost just double what is now asked for them. Bna ALSO
