MEN WHO ABE NAMED.
McGraw's Opinion of Wilson's
CONTEST FOR THE MAYORALTY.
Both Parties Preparing for a Vigorous
Campaign—The Harrison Legion—
Republican Ward Clubs.
The indications are that the political
campaign in the city this fall will be un
usually interesting, apart from the new
questions raised by the charter. The
movement toward an independent or non
partisan ticket does not meet with favor.
The Republicans express the opinion that
partisanship in local politics was forced
upon the city by the Democrats at the last
election; that In consequence they were
forced into active organization, and do not
now feel disposed to forego the advantages
they gained. The Democrats consider
that they have not l>een fairly recognized
in the apportionment of olhcea at previous
love-feasts, and they would ratber have
the fan of fighting than be put off with the
Among others who speak positively on
the subject is Mr. E. P. Blaine, Democratic
candidate at the last election for city attor
ney, and whose friends now propose to
nominate him for corporation counsel. He
says that "most men in Seattle prefer the
interests of the city to the interests of
party, and if an emergency arose it is most
probable that a combination would be ef
fected, but no such emergency exists just
now and both parties are likely to put a
strong ticket in the field.
It is worthy of note that the Republican
state convention has named September 23
as the day for holding the state convention
at Tacoma, and that comes perilously near
the date when the ten days' notice follow
ing the thirty days' publication of the
charter will expire. The charter election
need not be held at precisely ten days
thereafter. In fact, there is no limit, but
the probability is that the council will
name Monday, September 29, as the day of
The state convention is not likely to be
in session long. Its only duty is to nomi
nate a'successor to Congressman John L.
Wilson and elect a state committee. Sher
iff McGraw was asked yesterday what his
opinion was as to the selection to be made,
as he had an opportunity of meeting many
politicians at the recent meeting of the
"I have not the slightest doubt," said he;
"my opinion is that Wilson will be nomi
nated by acclamation.''
The opinion of tbe committee seemed to
be generally that Wilson had worked inde
fatigably for the state, and one member
quoted General Clarkson as sayinc that
Wilson was the hardest working congress
man in the country.
The county offices are likely to undergo
a change. Mr, McGraw will not be a can
didate for sheriff. So far the only out
itnoken candidates are Deputy Sheriff James
W. Woolery and ex-Chief of Police Thorn
ton. It is understood that Councilman
Fr»nk Twicheil will be put in nomination
[orlhe office of county auditor, and the
present incumbent, W. R. Forrest, will
probably be named as one of the senators
from this county. The present senators
are O. D. Gnilfoil, J. H. Jones, John R.
Kinnear, W. V. Rinehart and W. D. Wood.
As King conntv is one of the odd-numbered
districts, all five senators must be elected
this fall. A man named Rutherford, who
lives at Snoqualmie, is soliciting support
for one of the vacancies.
Harry White is thus far without a com
petitor for the mayoralty in his party,
tlthough an effort is being made by John
Leary's friends to construct an independent
:icket. Party lines are being strictly
irawn, however, and a most thorough can
rass is being made by both Republicans
ind Democrats. It will be exceedingly dit
acult to induce prominent men on either
tide to "bolt" the convention nominations.
Democrats are talking of both John Col
ins and John T. Ronald as their candi
-late for mayor; but D. H. Gil man and J.
R. McDonaid are being urged by one sec
,ion of the Democrats. The services ren
dered by Mr. Oilman to the city in connec

second regular meeting at the Gilbert &

well attended and a large number of new
signatures were subscribed to the constitu

The membership of the ciub now exceeds
100, and the organizers are determined to
make this the banner organization. The
headquarters of the club are now open
daily, with Secretary E. C. Dixon in
President J. M. Frink presided. In re
sponse to the call for the report of tho ex
ecutive committee, Chairman Clancy
stated that they had yet nothing to report.
They had held one meeting and organized
and arranged the preliminaries. They had
employed canvassers, who will today begin
John Wiley was called upon to address
the meeting, and responded. He said that
the Democratic argument in the last city
campaign was that that election would be
an index to the next. Success then meant
success in the one to follow. He was will
ing to accept their argument. Two con
gressmen are to be elected this fall, and
the next legislature will elect a United
States senator. A desperate effort will be
made by the Democrats to carry the state.
Republicans must work and organize. The
silent work of determined organization
would do more than music and transpar

HIS WIFE MISSING.
Max Kringie Would Also Like
to Find Fritz Schueber.
THEY DISAPPEARED TOGETHER.
The Old Story of a Pretty Wife, an
Cnanspeetlng Husband, a Palsa
Prlend and an Elopement.
Three persons mysteriously disappeared
from the view of their friends in this city
Wednesday evening, and there are many
good reasons for the belief that they went
together. The missing ones are the wife
and 5-year-old child of Max Kringie, pro
prietor of the Zur Quelle saloon, on Front
street, near Pike, and Fritz Schueber, at
one time a bartender in the saloon.
The last seen of any of the three was
Wednesday evening, and the surprised and
anxious husband has made every effort to
discover their whereabouts, but up to this
time without success.
Events of the past month have con
nected the names of Mrs. Kringie and
Schueber, the bartender, but that matters
had gone far enough to make an elope
ment probable was not suspected.
Schueber, who had worked in Kringle's
saloon for about a year, gave up his place
July 23, on the pretext that his health re
quired a vacation. Mr. Kringie owns a
ranch near Chico, in Kitsap county, and
the proprietor proposed that his bartender
go to the farm and recruit for a time.
Schueber consented, and the faot that Mrs.
Kringie was also at the farm did not pre
vent his immediate departure for the coun
try. He remained at the ranch about two
weeks, and then returned to the city and
announced his intention of making a jour
ney to Cincinnati to visit relatives there.
On Monday last Mr. Kringle heard inci
dentally that Schueber had returned from
the East, and was at the Chico ranch. He
immediately went out to his farm, and
Tuesday morning returned, in company
with Mrs. Kringle, his little daughter and
Schueber. Wednesday afternoon Mrs.
Kringle went out, saying she was going to
Lake Union to call on friends, and took her
child with her. At midnight she t) a( l not
returned, and Mr. Kringle, greatly aiacmed,
began (he search for her. It was discovered
later that Schueber was also missing.
Mrs. Kringle had been on friendly terms <
with Schueber Tor a long time, as the home
of the Kringle family is on the second floor
of the saioon building, where tbe two saw
each other daily. The lady is about 2ti, a
brunette, and possessed many attractions.
Schueber is a German, about 30, and has
gained some notoriety as the night bar
tender in whose place Wilke was working
when the shooting took place in tbe Zur
Quelle saloon on June 21.
Mr. Kringle left tbe city last evening in
parfcuit of the missing pair, his theory
being that they left on one of tbe night
CANDLE COAL DISCOVERT.
The Rich Gas Product Found Near Alki
Mr. Robert Johnston, of this city, called
at the POST-INTELLIGENCER officeyesterday,
with a specimen of candle coal which he
discovered on his ranch, on the mainland,
six miles directly southwest from Alki
Mr. Johnston said that since he took up
the farm, about five years ago, he has
known that for nearly a quarter of a mile
a 4-foot vein of lignite ran along, cropping
out at intervals on the beach and finally
burying itself in the salt water. He first
discovered the pure candle or gas coal
about ten days ago. He was following up
the vein of lignite and wondering whether
there was not a vein of pure coal beneath
it, when bis attention was called to some
magnificent looking lumps of black dia
monds that had been washed np on tbe
beach from some place under water. He
tested it and found he bad a very tine
quality of candle or gas coal.
Mr. Johnston says that experts have told
him in all probability a vein of the candle
coal of unknown dimensions follows at an
uncertain depth under the vein of lignite,
and with the lignite buries itself in the
water. Mr. Johnston believes this to be
the case, and that the candle coal found on
the beach is from a vein that lies sub
merged. He has not the money to work
the find, but is confident from the nature
of the soil aud other indications that there
is more than one vein, and that the hills
directly back contain wealth. He is anx
ious for his find to be developed, although
he avers it is not for sale.
Mr. Johnston has been a resident of Se
attle a good many years and lives on Yak
ima street, between Yesler avenue and

BIG FIFTY THOUSAND.
Population of Seattle's Metro
SHOWING OF CENSUS FIGURES.
City, According to Fropoeed Extension,
Has 46.287 People—A Talk With
Special Agent Froach.
Tne dispatch from Washington printed
in yesterday morning's POST»IKTELLI
GENCEB, showing that the population of
Seattle, according to the official figures
given out by Superintendent Porter, is
43.914, and of Tacoma only 35,858, has
caused a general feeling of satisfaction. It
is commonly beiieved by people familiar
with both cities that tbe figures as pub
lished are substantially correct.*
To a POST-INTELLIG ENCER reporter yes
terday, Mr. Thomas Prosch, who bad
charge of tbe Seattle enumeration, said he
was satisfied with the result, and he
thought Seattle would view the result with
pleasure. The returns as given out from
Washington are official and exact, and the
count made there is more accurate tlian
awf made either here or at Whatcom.
>jfr. Prosch gave some interesting facts in
Connection with the count. ■ He declared
' that he bad not himself counted the re
turns as first brought in, because he
thought the enumerators, who were paid
so much for each name, could be trusted to
make full returns. There was great anx
iety to get the papers at Whatcom and at
Washington as soon as possible, and so as
fast as the enumerates completed their
work tfie packages of papers were sent in
to Supervisor Will D. Jenkins to be
counted again. According to the tally Mr.
kept there were 39,001 name*, and
yio there was considerable surprise when,
' from Whatcom, Mr. Jenkins gave
out Seattle's population as 38,766.
After this 3,221 supplementary names
were sent in, and 1,035 were
gained in a recount, which, with the former
38,766, would give a total of only 43,022, or
892 less than the number given out from
Washington. From this it is evident that
the first count was about 1,000 short. This
fact is yet more forcibly shown when it is
remembered that Superintendent Porter
asserted that probably not more than 10
per cent of the names afterward taken
would be allowed. So it is perfectly clear
that the first counts, over which there was
such disappointment, were fully 1,000 the
From the population of 43,914 in the
present eity limits it is easy to calculate
the actual population of the whole city of
Seattle. The number of inhabitants in the
districts at once to be annexed is already
known. Fremont, Laiona, Edgewater,
Yesler and Green Lake have 1,467. Town-
ship 25, range 3, north of the city limits,
has 2,044, from which must be deducted
1,138 for Baliard, which will not probably
fbe added to Seattle immediately. The re
mainder alter the substraction is 90b.
Adding the 1,467 and 9C6 to the 43,914
gives 46,287 as the population of the city as
soon as the formal process of annexation
Besides these tracts there are several
places in what is known as the metropoli
tan district, which within a very short
time will be consolidated under the city
government of Seattle. These places are
Ballard with 1,138 inhabitants, and South
Seattle, West Seattle and East Seattle with
2,260. Adding these to the 46,287 gives 49,-
685, or approximately 50,000 souls ut pres
ent in the metropolitan district of Seattle.
In addition to these there are 138 names

is a city of 50,000 inhabitants.
