j,are been made to have them distributed

while 1 acting commissioner a
camber of applications were made by attorneys

Z, jj, fceir i-ates. This, of course, was con
' ST red as a Batter of businefa by the attorneys
■toplying. ior which they expei ted to reoeivo
ZeiTnsaUon from the parties entitled tj the
Z-L. bat I was eomptlled to decline to make
it being almoa: impossi <le to maks
item ont as desired, from the fact that tbe
■tests do not show upon the face of them the
antics to which they belong. We c-nnot
Jaertain from the description of the lands
diss lathe patents in what particular county
ET na Hence it would take a great deal of
toe ad labor to flnct out the particular coun
ts* to which the paten ta belong.
Itete pjtems have been accumulating in the
Men! iand office for a great many years and
Jtrcbesa considered as a burden to the office.
Often we have applications from individuals for
qmk pa ants and, when the description of the
kadis liven, we can, after considerable time
ed«erch, find them. This accumulation of
■stents core ring so long a period of time, on
Heosat of contracted space in the land office
ni the Hie which occurred there some
mn ago. is without any claasitl
frrtfw'' or system. T am satisfied
thst if we should undertake to send these
Missts to the counties in the respective states
isd territories in which the lands therein de
lated lis, U would require no leas than a dozen
emu tor an entire year. It has been greatly
Mnd for many years that some appropriation
£a«ld be made by congreas under which the
jiaribation °' these unclaimed patents could
heads, but no such appropriation has been
aade. On several < ccasions attorneys In good
frtutiny bare applied for leave to make out
Ms of snelalmed patents for certain counties
a their own expense and, when that could be
loss without interfering with the business of
to sice, we have allowed It.
tana time last summer a Washington repre
■atadvsof a New York law firm, whoae name I
ksra forgotten, came into the general land of
tola csnpany with Colonel W. W. Dadley and
punted me s letter from Assistant Secretary
d Ihs Interior General Cyrus Bnsaey, atatlng
hit he was well acquainted with aaid firm sad
tdftr" his own personal knowledge they
tenhisbly respectable and honorable gentle
ad, They were also unqualifiedly indorsed as
■sh br Colonel Dudley, who also knew the
Msban of tbe firm personally. The represen
tors of tbe firm requested permission to make
eat, wttfaost any trouble or expense to the 4e-
pitapat, lists of these unclaimed patents. Of
mm I understood it to be a matter of
kuili— with the firm, for doing which
they would charge enough to remunerate them
fcr their labor. Knowing that it was exceed
tolly desirable to rid the department of these
MfMatsaiid relieve us from the inoonven
iaoee snd expense of digging them out of the
tat ssd forwarding them to the parties calling
tor them, snd believing further that It would be
icoarenieot way for the owners of the land to
ebtata their patents, I gave them permission to
i asks oat these lists, which to some extent was
tee. but Ido not know how far. I also gave
ft* Ira a latter commending their undertak
es to those who were desirous of obtaining
test patents. They aaaared me they should
only charge for their work and responsibility a
wry moderate and reasonable fee, which, so
It? m I know, they have done I am sure
■either General Bu»sey nor Colonel Dudley has
I, least's tntereat in thia business, but both of
then thought it would be for the publle inter
at to (mat the permission referred to.
When it is said on the floor of the Senate, as
thia newspaper report atatea, or in any other
fbea by a senator or any other cheap slanderer,
that I had the least Interest, either directly or
Wirtctfy, In doing what X did, I brand him as
u unit!gated liar. 1 did no mora than ought
to kava been done, and would do the aame
tats tinder similar circumstances.
Hp* do these patents accumulate?
we send them to th« local land office to be de
listed to the owners, but thev are often not de-
Bwred because the paitles entitled to them fall
to call for them, and they are often returned to
the leneral land office It is consi ered the
kailness of the owners to call lor them, and
when the party calling for the patent shows by
•*®dent proof that he is the owner of the laud
*t and him the patent, if we can find it, and
V we cannot find it we makf him out a certified
«>W from our records and aend it to him on
torment of the prescribed fee of 11.60 therefor.
Woald yon consider $4 an exorbitant fee for
Mtaring a patent?
So, rtr: it is as cheap as the government can
••itfor, but this firm, having considerable
toiiness of that kind to do, can afford to do it
at a small margin. I do not know, however,
tow mach this firm chargee. I have no reason
Jteiieve that this business on the part of this
York firm has not been fairly and honor-

I«°«ke Riehardaon'a Readings.
Lovers of Shakespeare are waiting with
impatience for Tuesday night, when Locke
Richardson, the eminent reader, will give
tbe first recital of his series at the Uni
tarian church. It is not surprising that
these recitals should attract literary peo
ple; but that they should for several sea
sons be the vogue in the most exclusive
and fashionable society of New York, Bos
ten and Phiiadeiphia, implies that they
exert a charm and give a refined pleasure
not altogether accounted for by their liter
ary quality.
Mr. Richardson's recitals at the Univer
sity of California evoked this hearty com
mendation from Professor Alfred 8. Cooke,
who now occupies the chair of English in
Yale college:
"Mr. Locke Richardson has given eight
Shakespeare evenings at this university to
large audiences, including regents, pro
fessors and students. His success was in
stantaneous and pronounced. He never
suffers the attention of his hearers to flag
for an instant. His command of humor
and pathos moves them alternately to
laughter and tears. Always refined and
always instructive, he surpasses all but the
greatest of actors. His audience was cap
tivated by the first recital, remained en
thusiastic admirers of his gifts to the end,
and parted from him with sincere regret."
Columbia college—President Barnard
says: "Your work is of a very high order,
in insight, in expression and in scholar
Princeton college—Professor O-born
says: "You have lent substantial aid to
the department of English in the interest
aroused among the students."
Cornell university—President Andrew
D. White: "You present the most delight
ful and refining of all entertainments, the
worthy rendering of the best thoughts of
the best thinkers."
Mr. Locke Richardson's Beeltals.
Mr. Locke Richardson, who opens a
course of Shakespearian recitals in the Uni
terian church on Tuesday evening, July 8,
is a graduate of Trinity university, To
ronto, and has recently completed the circuit
of the globe, reciting the plays of Shake
speare. It is now nearly four years since
his departure from America. During this
period he has given one or more of the
master works of the great bard in New
York, Boston, Philadelphia, Brooklyn,
Newport, Washington, Baltimore, Chicago,
San Francisco. Oakland, Honolulu, Auck
land, Hobart, Melbourne, Sydney, Ceylon,
Calcutta, Benares, Malta, thence to Eng
land. He now returns to America, where
he feels there is a more loyal devotion to
the master-poet and wider field for the ex
ercise of high dramatic art than elsewhere
in all the world. His reading ot Julius
Caesar tomorrow evening will surely win
the admiration of all who are fortunately
Mr. Richardson's repertoire embraces:
"King Lear." "Merry Wives of Windsor,"
••Tempest," "King John," "Henry 1V.,"
"Romeo and Juliet," "Macbeth,"
"Othello," "Hamlet," "Twelfth Night,"
"Winter's Tale," "Julius C»3ar," "The
Merchant of Venice," "As You Like It,"
"Henry V.," "The Rivals," "The Christ
mas Carol," "The Idyls of the King," and
numberless poems and prose selections
from Tennyson, Dickens, Longfellow and
the Bible.

Opening of Lake Washington Casino.
The Lake Washington Casino, at the end
of Yesler avenue, was opeued yesterday,
and opening day was a success. Fuiiy
3,000 people attended, and of that number
over 2,500 witnessed the ini'ial per-
V ormanct in tie Casino, The auditorium*
which is 95x180 feet in size, was
packed to suffocation. The performance
given was a good one and was enjoyed by
all. The front of the stage and the pro
scenium boxes in the Casino resemb e a
mammoth cave, producing a fine effect.
The audience was a representative one,
being composed largely of families. Good
order prevailed.
A concert will be given this afternoon in
the Casino by the standard band, begin

Bad Death of a Former Well-Known
Seattl* Boy.
The Victoria Tiirts of June 30 gives the
following particulars of the drowning of
Samuel T. Gowen, formerly of this city:
New Wkstiiinstxii, June 30.—Yesterday af
ternoon, as the steamer Delaware reached a
point a short distance below St. Mary's mission,
on her return with an excursion party from
Harrison Hot Springs, Samuel T. Gowen, second
engineer, having oiled the engine cranks out
side, was walkiog <>n the guard of the boat with
au oil can in his hand, 1 jst his footing and fell
overboard. Two ludian* who witnessed the oc
currence gave au alarm at oucc. The steamer,
which was traveling at a high rate ot speed at
the time, was several hundred yards past before
she could be reversed, and before assistance
could be rendered the unfortunate man he hsd
disappeared beneath the wav<s and was seen no
more. Mr. Gowen wss about 22 yearn of age and
wss well known in Victoria, having lived there
some time. His parents are at present residing
at Seattle.
Tho lata Mr. Gowen was for many yean a res
ident of Victoria, bis ta'her, Mr. Thomas
Gowen, having hem at one time proprietor of
the Novelty Iron Works, on Ftore street. Young
Mr. Gowen learned h s trade there and was a
hUhly skilled mechanic. He was also hichly
educated, asid understood thoroughly the theo
retical as well as tho practical part of bis pro
fession. lie gave promise of becoming a bright
light in the engineering world, and his unfor
tunate death will be a sad blow to bis bereaved
parents and his many triced*.
Mr. Thomas Gowen, consulting engin
eer ol Seattle, is tbe father of the unfortu
nate young man. Mr. Gowen knew noth
ing of the accident until Wednesday
morning, a letter of condolence having been
s»>nt from friends in Victoria, the captain
of the Delaware having telegraphed, but it
was not delivered. Mr. Gowen left at once
for the place of the accident, and every
thing is being done to recover the body,
and hopes have been entertained by the
family that he may have got ashore, as he
was a good swimmer. Mr. Gowen. sr., is
well known on the £ound and by
many in Seattle for his mechan
ical abilities, having come to this city about
two years ago with plans and specifica
tions for the Western mill, and superin
tended the construction of it; also the
Union water-works. His son who was
drowned being at borne on a visit at the
time, and not being able to get anyone to
erect the engines, Mr. Gowen got him to
do it, which is qui'e a success. Young Mr.
Gowen was at one time foreman of the
Almond & Phillips Foundry fompanv of
this city. This is a sad blow to the family,
made doubly ao on account of bis ap
proaching marrage, which was to take
place to a young lady of Portland, Or., at
the end of this month.

Delayed by the Strikes and Other
Causes, It Is Going Ahead.
The construction of the Hotel Denny is
again well under way, with a full force of
workmen in all departments now unfin
ished. and unless there are to be still other
vexatious an<i unforseen delays, this mag
nificent edifice will be ready for its furni
ture in a few weeks. Work was resumed
after the long delay enforced upon the con
tractor by the corn ice-makers' strike about
two weeks ago. This strike stopped every
thing, and for over a month not a stroke
was done on the building. Contractor Pot
vin was powerle>s to do anything to avert
tbe delay. Tbe difficulty was not between
him and the cornice-makers, but between
them and the master cornice-makers.
Mr. Potvin would gladiy. for the sake of
pushing the completion of this building,
have employed the men on their own
terms, but that would riot have brought
the master cornice-makers to their terms,
and they refused his concessions. It was
known that there was more anxiety for the
hasty completion of this building than of
any other on the Coast, and the workmen
seized a juncture when everything ou the
s' . •
building was awaiting their work to strike.
They knew that this wonld secure the
efforts of the contractor to urge the master
cornice-makers to accede to their demands.
Although the time for the completion of
the building is long past, repeated unavoid
able delays are responsible. The work has
been hindred by the material famine of last
fall, the unusually severe winter arresting
all progress for several weeks, the strike,
and other nnforseen causes. Had it not
been for the strike Mr. Potvin sars tbat he
would have completed the building by the
Ist of August
There are now about sixty carpenters at
work on the building outside and inside.
The floors are being laid, the roof com
pleted. the cupolas constructed, etc. The
brick work is ail completed with the excep
tion of the high tower surrounding the
front elevation.

Alexander Vasbon, "the king of hearts,"
stfll languishes in a steel cell in the city
jail. A telegram announcing his arrest
has been pent to Butte, Mont., and he will
be held to await an answer from the local
authorities of that city. He takes his con
finement easy and is just as chipper as on
the day he was arrested.
This i* not the first time, according to hia
own story, that he has been in jail. It
seems that, while in Pennington, Dak.
making love to Miss Emma Van Horn,
whom be afterwards made Mrs. Vashon
and Miss Ella Freel, be was arrested for
seducing the latter, and spent five days in
jail. He secured his release and induced
Miss Freel to refrain from prosecuting him
bv giv ne her 160 acres of land.
For fifteen years I was afflicted with rheu

remedy without receiving any benefit. I
finally began on Swift's Specific <B. S. S.),
which from the first gave me relief, and to

Washington is frequently referred to as the
Pennsylvania of the West. This is well enough
as far as it goe«, but all well-informed people
know that Washington potseatus not only all
cf Penmrrivanln's sources of wealth, bat m»ny
more. She is iar superior in the way of min
eral and timber wsaltb, agricultural area and
climate, and a'so has the finest inland set and

the substantial resour- es in greater abundance
than any oiher state and* the world is her mar

This fact has been recognised by the Northern
Pacific and Seattle, Lake Store & tastern Kail
road companies and many prominent capital
ists anl manu'ac urers. some of whoa~> names
will appear in this advertisement. We have
noted these developments and as e result con
trol the town-lte of Bno>nalml • Falls, and pro
pose to handle I'. in such a manner ns to en
courage the buildin? of a grea" city.
The following are some of the groands on
Siopliie Falls
Bases Her Claims for Fu
ture Greatness:
COAL AND IRON— In the immediate vicin
ity are all the raw materials used in the manu
facture of i on. A 1 nost Hdjo'nt'ig the towuaite
is a deposit of the fines' cokln? coal in tie
Northwest in inexhaustible quantit es. It is
now being dev loped by ;be snoqualmie Coks
Compiry, composed of snci men as A. M
Cannon of Spokane Fa Is, Jedge Calkin* of Ta
com% and C. B. N block of A
number of coke ovens are to be built imme
diately. Bever*l other mines of excellent coal
are located in the immediate v ci iity, iu c'.oo
proximity to large quantities of first-class iron
ore. assaying fr m 60 to 70 per cent
91 \KBLK-Nature has supplied iar*e de
posits of marb e close t) the iroa, just where it
is ueeded for ftux ng.
QR 4HlTK— Almost w th'n the town limits
isa 'a*ge quarry of granite w dch takes a polish
fjpe enough fcr monumental work. A side
track has been built to the quarry and it is
partially opened.
LTM KER —Just a"ross the river is a ?awmlll
of double the capacity of any other mill in
King county, equipped with machinery of the
most improved kind. It cuts 15) 000 feet in ten
hours and em pi. ys 2GO men. Ta s is the be
ginning of the lumbering industry at this
point ,
HOPS—Adjoining the townslte is the Bno
quamie hop ranch, the largest in the world,
employ ng a numt>er of men and yielding
good profits.
FARMING —Tbe Scoqua'm'e valley is the
most fertila a?Mcu tu »l disrict in Western
Washington. It is aires iy well developed and
tha laud is phenomenally rich.
Lake Shore & Eastern railroad taps the Sno
quamie country, and as an eridanee of its
fal h the company has erected at Suoqualtnle
Falls the hnartsomest depot building on the
line. Two passenger and two orti.ro* freight
trains arr.ve and Uave rnoqualmle Falls daily.
Tha Northern I'aoifl; com;>a:»y has over 1,000
men at work rons'.ract'n r a line from Tacoma
to Snoqualmie to set are a portion of the im
mense pnstertlve business in the trans;orta
tir n of coal, iron, lumber hops, agricu tural
products and passenger*. T:ie work is now pro»
gressing within two miles of Snoqualmle Falls
and the road will be completed and in opera
tion theve by early fall. This is theonlv po'nt
in the state where there it a Junction of the
Seattle, Lake Shore A Eastern and Norrhern Pa
cific roads.
The Scoqualmie & Tolt rallrond tapping one
of the finest timber belts in the world, is ia
gctiv" operation.
1: will thus be saen that Snoqnalmie Falls it
becoming a railroad canter of decided im
portanca. Tha Bn<xiualmie country has long
been r o'ed for conUlalng tho finest timber in
the \yorld, which • now male ava labia hy the
railroads and s*wrall!s. At fiis pain: c< ke nnd
iron of the best quality are 'ogeiher, and as it
takes four tons of raw material to make one of
manufactured, the saving in transportation
will oi necessity make §noqualroie Falls the
placa *.o sme.t the ere. S::oqualmie Fal s is
fifty-six miles fr>tn Seattle, far e -ongh away
from the metropolis to permit its growth.
Long before there was a railroad in King
county Snoqualmle Falls was recognized as the
most beautiful summer resort in Western Wash
ington. The fa Is are 268 feet high and hart
been pronounced ty travelers and artiata as the
mos t beautiful in the world. The following la
an extract from a letter written by a prominent
society isdy now sojourning at the fall^:
