The Board Listening to To* Complaints
-Lake Union Sehenaas.
The county commissioners have not yet
taken up any general business of an im
portant nature, but are still receiving com
plaints from discontented taxpayers and
from those who think the assessor set them
down for too much, and in this way a good
many changes and equalizations have been
ordered on the tax roll.
"The board will not take up business of
a general nature until next week," said
Deputy Auditor Frank Twicheli yesterday.
"It has refrained from mixing the equali
zation of taxes with general business as
much as possible, and with the exception
of a few cases, where the applicants were
farmers who had come a long way and who
could not maae another trip to town next
week without a great deal of trouble and
considerable extra axpenee, and whose
business any way was of a non-important
nature, we have not broken over the
Mr. Twicheli eaid that the Lake Union
bridge matter, wherein the commissioners
are petitioned to allow $2,600 for its com
pletion, will come before the body in ses
sion tne first of next week. Being asked
if there were any other petitions of an
important nature which had been pro
sen ted to the board, Mr. Twicheli said:
"There has been a verbal petition from
the people of Fremont, asking the commis
sioners to allow SIO,OOO for the completion
of the boulevard around Lake Union to the
suburb mentioned. The completion of the
boulevard would be a great thing for not
only the Fremont people, but for the
Green Lake residents also. As it
stands, however, the board will
probably not consider the petition se
riously unless it is presented in a different
shape—on paper. Even then there is a
question whether or not the county com
missioners could make the desired appro
priation, were they so inclined, as some
claim the boulevard is not on a county
road, and not even in the county, being
built out in the lake, and consequently out
of the jurisdiction of the commissioners.

SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCEB, TUESDAY. AUGUST 12, 1890.
WATEE FOE THIEBTY.
Several Ladies' Ideas of a Pub*
AN ORNAMENT TO THE TRIANGLE
Tbm W. C. T. u. Will Plaee It There to
FOrnish Drink for Both Man
The proposition of the Woman's Chris*
tian Temperance Union to pteoe a large
drinking fountain in the public square is
attracting considerable attention, and the
ladies are very enthusiastic otrer the
project. Yesterday a Post-Ihtelligehcex
reporter called on a number of them and
asked them concerning the style and cost
of the proposed fountain and title motive
for erecting one.
Mrs. C. K. Jenner, who was first seen,
said: "I think the fountain should cost
several thousand dollars. I would like
fountains placed in other parts of the city,
bat think the one on the triangle should be
the mo*t expensive and beautiful, and
moreover, that the people opposed to
saloons and drinking should be the ones to
supply the water and make the place of
■apply generally attractive."
Mrs. Dr. K. G. Johnson was next seen
She said: "It is cuatomary all over the
United States for the Women's Christian
Temperance Union to build such lountains
in advocacy of iheir printiples, and these
fountains are generally fine and large and
something the city is proud of. We will
correspond with Eastern cities with refer*
ence to the style of the fountain and study
catalogues of designs, besides referring the
matter to business men of experience tnd
judgment. I propose a fountain for beast
as well as man, but we won't put up any
thing insignificant in such a conspicuous
place. Probsbiy, in character, the fount
ain will be some emblematic temperance
figure or a statue commemorative of some
feature of Seattle life or growth. We will
discuss the matter in a businesslike way.
We have large ideas and have friends, we
think, to back tbem."
Mrs. William Butler, president of the
Woman's Christian Temperance Union,
was seen next. She replied to the question
concerning the estimated cost of a fountain
suitable for the place where it is intended
to build it, "We want something that will
be a credit to Seattle and a credit to the
Woman's Christian Temperance Union,
whatever that may cost. I have no defi
nite ideas as yet. We have plenty of time
tt look up something handsome before the
square la ready for use. Io Seattle there is
a crying need for water, and as the place is
accessible to both man and beast we will
not delay or procrastinate."
Mrs. Frank Lee, when questioned, re
plied : "We shall send East for informa
tion. I think the fountain should be some
thing like the one in San Francisco placed
in the public square by the Woman's
Christian Temperance Union of that city.
If it is necessary, some one will be sent
East to select for us. This is the custom
of the union all over our country, and It
stands a 9 a monument of our sentiments
while It saves many a man f/om going in
saloons to quench his thirst. We shall
dedicate it to some person, possibly Miss
Mrs. Jay E, Tibbits, who wu asked for
her opinion, replied: ''Of course it must
6e handsome and costly. Our nnion in
Mount Vernon, N. Y., pat one up there,
and the mangle was core red with trees,
grasses and flowers, with rustic seats and
beaatifol gold fish in the watar. I would
suggest to make our own public triangle as
beautiful as that, or I think a statue like
the one in Madlion park, New York city,
would be a good model. We had a lovely
time when the fountain was dedicated."
Mrs. A. H. Harrison referred to the
fountain in Tacoma, and suggested a place
for dogs, horses and men, but vary pretty
and artistic and in no way inferior.
Mrs. H. A. Park hurst estimated the
minimum eost at SI,OOO.

SCHOOL BONDS SOLO.
Jacob Forth Bays Them at a Premium
aud S i*er cent. lutareat.
The school board met in the connty
treasurer's office at 2 o'clock ye-terday
afternoon for the purpose of orening the
bids for the purchase of $200,000 in county
bonds, per advertisement, in accordance
with :he election of June 24, MKKX There
were present J. M. Frink, president of the
board, directors Hughes, Coikett and
Smith, lira. M. A. Hawthorne, clerk, W.
H. White, attorney for the school hoard,
a»d W. G. Latimer, county treasurer.
The bids for which the board advertised
erted tor the rstt st which each bidder
would purchase 1200,000 worth of county
bonds, the funds forthwith to be used for
the construction and furnishing of new
school bondings. Four bids were received
Blain A Co. bid $215,200, a premium of
$76 per share ($1,000), at 6 per
cent, interest per annum; J. Furth,
as agent, $204,600, at 6 per
cent, interest, giving a premium of
$4,600; 8. A. Keen A Co., of New York,
$202,850, 6 per cent, interest, allowing a
premium of $2,350; N. W. Harris A Co., of
New York, $201,163, without specifying the
rate of interest, allowing $1,163 premium.
The bonds number 200, and are worth
SI,OOO each, and are issued for a term of
nineteen years. On examination the board
decided that the bid of J. Furth was the
most advantageous, and therefore accepted
it. Although Blair A Co. offered a larger
premium, it was computed that 5 per cent,
interest, aa offered by J. Furtn, in spite of
the large premium of Blair A Co., would
be much cheaper in the time specified.
WHXTB CAPS AT BALLABD.
Warnings Tneked to Saloon Doors—News
of the Town.
Several unique notices, one each ad
dressed to Mr. Terr, Mr. Robert Murphy
and Messrs. Madigan & King, have been
found pinned to the door of the saloon of
the last named, on North Ballard avenue.
Madigan A King were recently burned out,
and formerly kept a somewhat notorious
glace of business on South Ballard avenue.
The notices, which are given below, read
after the style of white-csps, and have cre
ated considerable oomment among those
who have seen them. Some regard the
matter as a bad attempt at a joke, while
others claim there is a bud of seventy-five
men leagued to maintain peace and order.
The notioee read as follows:
Mr. King—Sir: Yeu are hereby notified not to
run a saloon with Madigan. If you do yon will
be leaving yourself liable to the hands ol bis
enem.es, who will stop at nothing, and you as
well as he will suffer. So beware and look into
the matter before you do anything, for his li
cense will never be used again in this town as
long as the band of seventy-five men bang to
gether. |Sigued.J Per Order Committee.
Mr. Farr~S*r: You are hereby notified not to
allow Madigan or King to ran a saloon in your
building. If yeu do you wid bo putting your
self in a preoarious condition, as no means will
be spared to have it stopped—not even Uvea So
beware! [Signed.] Per Order Committee.
Another carload of machinery, consist
ing of shaft, cylinders, donkey-pumps, el
bows and part of the smokestack of Mr.
John Leary's new steamer, the Bailey
Gatzert, arrived over the Northern Pacific
yesterday and will be taken to Bailard at
once. The boat is partly painted and pre
sents a very fine appearance. She will be
covered with a copper bottom, which will
be coated with copper paint. She will be
furnished elegantly and luxuriously with
all the modern appiianoes for the comfort
and convenience of the traveling public. It
is not expected, however, that she will be
ready to launch before September 15.
Before granting franchises to the differ
ent railroads the council intends to have
some equitable system of regulating freight
charges. Already accusations of unfair
discrimination in freight charges toward
the merchants, milixnen and others doing
business in Ballard have been made.
Twenty-four dollars on one carload from
Seattle to Ballard strikes some as an out
rageous, and yet that was the amount on
one carload of macninery figured accord
ing to the regular schedule of prices at 6
cents per cwt.
George Washington Cole, the colored ton
sorial artist of Ballard, who claims to hare
been elected mayor of Ballard by a eon
coarse of humorous citiz-ns, now appears
in the role of ft epfinter, and issues the fol

CRUSHED CHOIR EARTH.
A Lsbsrar Loses a Lag by a Bank Cav
Shortly before noon yesterday L. P. NeU
..eon, a street grader, employed by Con
tractor Wyatt, in excavating the lot at the
corner of Second and Cherry streets, where
the Dr. H. A. Smith's big building is about
to be. erected, waa very seriously injured
by a bank of falling earth. Nelson had
just begun to load a wagon
when t|ie whole top section of the excava
tion suddenly slid down upon him, crush
ing his left leg nearly to to the hip into a
shapeless ma<B. Nelson was immediately
carried to Providence hospital, where Dr.
M. White Frederick examined his inju
ries. It was found that the
(high bone of the left leg was
broken in two places, and that
the knee joint was badly crushed, the
whole injury being, technically, a com
pound commuted, complicated fracture.
Although the unfortunate man begged to
have his limb saved, amputation was found
necessary in order to save bis life, and the
limb was taken off several inches above the
knee by Dr. Frederick, assisted by Drs.
Newlin and Hagan. At a late hour last
night Kelson was resting easily, and the
phyaicians think recovery probable.
A Lather's Terrible Fall.
Charles Anderson, a lather employed on
the new Brodek-Schlesinger building, fell
through a hatchway into the basement,
twenty feet below, at noon yesterday, and
was picked up in an unconscious condi.
tion. He revived a little whi.e undergoing
medical examination, and was sent to his
home in North Seattle by Dr. J. B. Lough
ary, who attended him. At a late hour
last night the unfortunate man was still
lying in a stupor, and it is feared be cau
not recover, the indications being that he
haa suffered concussion of the brain.
