Mr. George Donworth has submitted a minority report upon the memorial of the Knights of Labor. The question ia likely to be productive of one of the most animated \ debates of the session, and the report is * ""* therefore given at length: lb t*e fs-attl* (%artr- of 1?;0: Ifeo undersigned, a member ol your commit tee on pubM« works, having been absent at the time when the majority of eai<l committee »ub- Witted its report relative to the petition of tho Knighti of Labor, deal res to muse a minority *t*ort, expressing bis views on the matters mentioned in said petition, and a- ks leave to r-,? with the commission a minority report, as follows |||/ 1 fail* concur in the report of said committee |3f. •* te the first and second point* mentioned therein, and in all that is conuined in w.id report except the hit pararraph. T!ie sub ject matter of the '.asvparagraph is the request of tte Knights of Libor that a provision be in serted to the rbsrter forbidding the cm ploy - Lieut by the eity ia any capacity of any ot her perrons than citizens of the United state* and those who have declared thair intention to become snch. I wish to say that I heartily favor this proposition. The commit tee'* report declares that it ia owe of the natural rights ol man to be permitted to earn h;s breal by the sweat of his trow, and that snch rl«nt should not be a'jnJged but should be protected. P^fses^i'ig a firm conviction cf the freth of thia declaration. I l>elleve the risrhttbust rsely and ably stated ought to be and wouid be tuarded by the charter provision askei 1 . for. Hy the constitution and laws of onr national, state and municipal governments, the pers nal security ard property rights of every man. woman and cii Id Within our boundaries are protected, re gardless of race, sex, are or citizenship, and an attempt ty this city to abridge any of these rights, eve-i if anyone were to tropose it, would be a nullity. I do not sei that the proportion suggested ia open to the charge o. abridging any man's riant to labor lor his *uppor«\ Under our laws every avenue of private employment ia open to citizen* asd non-citizens alike, and rightfully so. There ia 110 prottcfl: n of person or property lor the citizen thst doea not shelter the non-citi zen as well, and rightfully «o. But there are principles of state policy that limit the par ticipation of the non-citiseu in the atlminisir*- tion of the ticvernment that are totally distinct from th.- principles which his rithts ah a man Our law says the non-citizen cannot hold a public office, because one who acknowl edges allegiance to another power should not take part in the government I see no reason why a distinction should be made in thia re spect between public officers and public em ployes. lJ< tb are equally servants of the state, both should equally icel that there are advan tage* in tlieir bring citizens of our country. Ths laws of the state also debar the non-citizen (who has not declared his intention to become a citizen) from the risht to own land within this s'.nt". In my opinion it should be the desireand aim of true muuiclpal government to cultivate habits o' frugality among its em ployes, so that however humble their beginning they may become possessors of some share in the general prosperliy, and may acquire prop erty and homes ihat will be to them a stake in the security and peace of »he common wealth. Those who by fa lure to declare their intention to become citizeus, debar themselves purposely from the power to own their own homes and to take part in the government, should be satisfied with those branches of emp'oyment and ave nues to wcaltia (of which thi re are sbuudance) that are afforded by private enterprise, protected and fostered by law. 1 believe that a provision requiring any mau to declare his intention to become a cit zen of tho country before being employed and paid bv the government does not abridge any natural rijht or deprive him of any protec'ion to which be is entitled by nature, reason 01 law.

The Stosmer Said to Have a Canoe- Shaped and Petrified Hull A Tarn on the Eastern Oregon. Purser W. Anderson, of the steamer Eastern Oregon, is perhaps as fine a story teller as any boat's officer that sails over the waters of Paget sound, and is in bis gio: y when making passengers as happy as a popular purser can. On the trial trip of the Eastern Oregon to Tacoma last week, Purser Anderson told many laughable in cidents of his many years of experience on the bound. To the two guileless reporters, who were most attentive listeners, the fol lowing story was fuliy appreciated: "I suppose you have never heard the storv about the old E isa Anderson ?" "Why, no!" exciauued the interested re porters. "Well, I thought you didn't know every thing, Quite. The old Anderson may not look as bright as some of the other steam ers on tbe Sound, but I'd rather go down tbe Sound in her today than a number of the other steamers that look a mighty sight safer. The rest of them when they get in a sea, like we are liable to encounter almost any time in Deception pass, will cut into a sea and drop suddenly enough to almost shake a fellow's dinner into his boots and break every stanchion short off. The old Anderson drops as easy into a sea as failing into a feather bed, because she bas a genuine canoe bottom. You didn't know that? Well, sbe has. "I'll tell you something else that very few people know. Her bottom is petrified, though you may not believe it. How is that? I don't know, but I was told that it was found out this way: When the An derson got in a collision here last year, the owners gave a contract to have her re paired and have a new bottom put in her, as they thought they bad better make a good job while th®y were about it. The contractors put the vessel on the dock and repaired her where she was d imaged. The carpenters then prepared to put new plank ing on her bottom, but when they, started to work the augers it was no go. "The next day they called around to see the owners and informed them that they would have to throw up the contract. The owners of course expressed sui prise and wanted to know the reasons for such a decision. The contractors said they had no fault to find with the contract and under ordinary circumstances would have made a fair profit, but they would like to be relieved of the contract without making an explanation, as it might appear absurd. The owners, however, demanded the reasons. r.KOROB Dos WORTH. "The contractors said it might sound absurd but it was nevertheless a fact that the bottom of the Eliza Anderson was pet rified and they could never put on a bottom to equal the one she then had. The owners would not lie convinced until they went over and examined for themselves. They were satisfied then and relieved the con tractors. The Anderson has been running ever since with a stone hull that is .as smooth as a rock and will last forever if it doesn't get a big thump—then it will fly to pieces like a piece of cast iron, it's so brittle. "How do they account for such a re markable case of petrification? If a re porter's cheek doesn't unravel the mystery of ftrange cases of hardening, I can't tell you, boys, but I'll tell you how it was ex plained to me. It appears that the roan who built the Eliza Anderson hadn't enough money to complete her for a long time, and her half-finished hull lay in the shipyard three years or more seasoning, before work was begun on her again. They say the timber in her bottom was cut while the sap was running—that's sometime in August, isn't it?—and when it had been dried to a certain stage and was put into the salt water it was in a condition for petrification to set in, and it did. This petrification has been going on ever since, and might not have been known but for the attempt made to replank her bottom." The genial purser may have told his fascinating story to prevent a visit to an empty larder, as ho had come aboard just before the Eastern Oregon left the dock, and what new and surprising things be might have related to his jolly friends abont the canoe and petrified-tottomed favorite will have to be conjectured, as his true sailor's yarn was cut short by the call to dinner by the steward, and the dinner was such an excellent one, thanks to the ar rangements of Manager McNeill, that at least one of the reporter's memory did not revert to Purser Anderson's story until yesterday.

Those who have read the accounts in the newspapers of the successful efforts of a number of well-known capitalists to organ ze the Moss Bay Iron Company, know now to a certainty that the establishment of the proposed Mammoth Iron Works at Kirkland Will result in making that place one of the greatest cities on the continent Within a year $1,000,000 wili be expended in »u ung up the largest iron plant of America, and this is only the beginning. The Mos* Bay Iron Company represents almost unlimited capital, and the iron ore of the famous Denny mines is" ascertained to be of a most superior quality, and particularly adapted for the manufacture of tine Bessemer steel. The company will employ about Thirty-five Hundred Men, Which means that five timas that number will make Kirkland their future home within the next year. There are a number of other important enterprises to go into Kirkland. We have it upon the authority of the POST-IWT&LLIOESTCER that G-neral Alg«r, the wen-known Micßigan capitalist, has received positive word that Mr. Hecker, of the Peninsular Car Company, proposes to establish a Big Car Wheel Foundry In Kirkland, and that Manager Colburn of the Detroit Iron and Bridge Works, is also contetnp ating putting a plant in here. No doubt the near future wiil prove Kirkland to be a celebrated steel rail and car manufacturing center. Kirkland'* greatness is based upon a solid foundation of IRON! IRON! IRON!
