The new steamer Bailey Gatsert was sno
eessfnliy iaunched from Holland's ways,
in Ballard, at 1 o'clock yesterday after
noon, amid flattering banners and the
cheers of fully 1,500 spectators. The
launching was announced to take place at
noon, bat was delayed until high tide, an
boor later. Long before thai time the
road from the bridge to the shipyard was
filled with people flocking in from Seattle
and the country surrounding to witness
The new vessel, just completed, rested in
a cradle boilt opon the ways, and stood
broadside toward the water, 100 yards
from, the edge. She is painted a pure
white, with dark red trimmings, and made
a beantiful picture poised upon the tim
bers, ready to glide down into the waves.
Four hundred people stood upon ber decks
and watched the preparations, and over
their heads flags waved from every spar
When every detail was complete the
workmen gathered about the keel, ready
for the word to knock away the blocks,
and the crowd gathered at every point of
observation, with the people on board, held
their breath in expectation. Captain J. J.
Holland, the builder, gave the command,
and in five seconds the slight supports
were removed, the boat settled into the
cradles and moved easily and steadily
down toward the water. As she entered
the waves, which she is to ride tike a thing
of life, a cheer went up from every specta
tor, and at the same moment little Willie
Holland, son of the builder of the vessel,
broke a bottle of champagne over the bow
of the steamer and christened her "Bailey
Captain George Hill, who is to be master
of the steamer, was at the wheel, and put
ting his helm hard aport, he swung her
around, and the eradle timbers fell away
from her hulL The steamer drew near the
wharf to take on board Captain Holland,
who had remained on shore to direct every
and then the tug Hornet,
which bad stood off a little distance, ready
to assist, gave the Bailey Gatgert n line and
pulled ber back into the channel. Captain
Hill gave the engineer the signal to start
bis engines, the big wfceel began to turn,
and with a graceful sweep the steamer
moved toward the mouth of Salmon bay,
on her way to Seattle.
Among those on board were Captain
James T. Troupe, Captain J. N. McAlpine,
and Captain Oiancey, of the Union Pacific
water lines. The passengers continued
the jubilee all the way around to Beattie
harbor, and seemed to enjoy the- occasion
as well as those most interested. The
steamer drew up at Smith's wharf at 2:55,
where another large crowd had gathered to
The Bailey Gatxert is a stsm wheel
steamer, 208 feet long over all, with ISO feet
length of keel, and thirty-two feet Seam.
Her engines are 1,800 horse-power, suffi
cient, it is claimed, to make her the fastest
boat on the Sound. There are some de
tails in ber fittings to be completed, and
the dynamos for her electric lights are still
to be put in. It is expected that ail will be
finished within a few days, and the steamer
be ready for her first trip next week. She
will lie at Smith's wharf for the present.
Booghly CarveA and Painted Images
A decided curiosity was found recently
by a party of graders on the Seattle &
Montana railroad right-of-way, at a point
about three miles north of Ballard. Among
the thick brash 100 feet from the shore of
the Boand and half exposed, were two
carved wooden images, which appear to be
the headstones of Indian graves. A POST
IKTKLLIUEIFCEB reporter was yesterday
shown a photograph of the images taken
by Mr. Wilsey, a draughtsman in the city
engineer's office, and obtained a verbal
description of th«tn from ▲. O. Scurfield,
the engineer in charge of that section of
The images are busts, roughly carved in
fir wood, and do not appear to be over five
or years old, though tbey have prob
ably Been covered with some material
which prejerves them and are therefore
likely to be older. One of them, which in
the better niece of work, is abont four and
one-half feet high and the other about
three feet high, in the rear they have the
appearance of the keel of a boat, fiat on
top, though in front the hetfd rises to a
point. They measure about eighteen
inches across the chest and at the base are
rounded oil to about the thickness of a
man's arm. They are charred at the lower
end as if with fire. Both are covered with
some kind of varnish, as it to prevent them
The larger image has eyes made of pieces
of white pottery about the size of a dollar.
A patch of white paint is on the outer
corner of each eye and a white stripe runs
down the noae. A hole is cut for the
mouth and white stripes mark the lips.
Tne left arm hangs down at the side and
the right is stretched across the chest, both
fists being clinched and each having six
hngers. The whole figure is striped with
The smaller figure has not had so much
labor used on it and appears to represent a
pappoose bound up in rags, as the Indians
usually carry their children, and it« arms
ars hidden by the bandages. Holes have
been gouged out for the eyes and the face
is streaked with red paint.
Both images have been set up in the
ground in a clearing near the railroad
grade and are attracting much attention.
It Is Discovered That the District ii
The Ballard school board met Friday
night and sent a written demand to the ex
clerk for the books, which be had refused
heretofore to deliver to the new board.
He delivered the books upon the order.
It was found that the district is badly in
debt, and the affairs of the school seem to
have been conducted in a loose and care
less way. As a result of bad management
it is claimed the district will be the loser to
the amount of several thousand dollars.
The new board decided to prepare a finan
cial statement showing the condition and
management of the business of the district.
This tbey will present to tbe people Friday,
the 28-h inst, and ask advice as to what is
best to do under the newty discovered
state of affairs.

The great straggles of the past, the glori

vanished long ago from the busy scenes of
life, even the little incidents of every day
existence in the oiden times, make chapters
of more interest than any works of fiction.

In great cities, like Seattle, the daily
newspaper fs the people's historian, faith
fully recording the thrilling events of the
city's life day by day. Life is not made up
altogether of startling occurrences. The
minor happenings in noisy streets, busy
workrooms and offices, and quiet bornes,
are details, but important ones, for they
complete the picture.
In the commercial history of every
place may be found an index to the ad
vancement and culture of the people. The
needs of the time and the efforts to meet
them are told in the commercial columns
of the daily newspaper. A multitude of
people has many wants, and where those
wants are given most complete expres
sion is a mine of valuable suggestions.
The POST-IXTEIAIOUCSB contains in
every issue columns of brief notices that
tell their own story, and each one pos
sesses more than passing interest. The
agency by which the many wants of the
people may be made known, and many of
them supplied, is a benefactor as well as an
educator. Some are aided in disposing of
property which they are glad to part with,
while those who secure that which is of
fered are equally well pleased, often receiv
ing val uabie assistance from it.
The man who seeks employment has it
in bis power to make bis want known to
every one of the host of readers in scores
of cities, towns and villages throughout
the entire Northwest.
The employer who desires competent
and faithful employes may find them in
this way. If they are not close at hand
they are reached at a distance.
The real estate owner or agent looking
for a customer, the man with money to
loan, the would-be tenant anxious to se
cure a desirable lease, the many who have
property of various kinds which they
would be pleased to exchange, ail may
speak to thousands their wishes.
All classes make use of these columns,
and in them may be read the history of
the wants of the people, and it is intensely
interesting history, for it is real, not ficti

Progress of the Work and Arrangement
of the Building.
Workmen are now putting the roof on
the Catholic parochial school on Spring
street, between Fifth and Sixth. The
building is now so far advanced that its
general appearance and arrangement can
readily be seen. It is seventy-five feet
deep and lifty-four feet wide, and has
wings extending some feet beyond the
main building on each side. The struc

The main front entrance is in tbe middle
of the Spring street Bide. The doors open
into a hall, from which stairs lead to the
floor above. A hail runs through to the
center ot the building, in which is a rotun
da. From this there is access to the four
classrooms, occupying the four corners of
the first floor. Each room is airy and
well lighted, and is provided with a large
cloakroom. When the structure is com
pleted these classrooms and halls will be
htted with gas burners and electric lights.
Ventilating shafts run from the classrooms,
and they are to be heated by hot water
pipes. Each room will furnish sccommo*
d itions for between forty and fifty pupils.
The pupils' entrance to the rotunda is

tassa, drying, dnd then heating in the oxy
hydrogen blowpipe flame, and Deville has
formed the sapphires by somewhat similar
means. In a pure natural state it is the
mineral sapphire, and it is the characteris
ing element of common olay in which it ex
ists as an impure silicate with water. The
common alum of commerce is a double
sulphate of alumina and potassa. Alumina
is also seen as a white efflorscenoe on clay.
Aluminum metal is white with a bluish
tinge, and is remarkable tor its resistance
to oxydation and for its lightness, having
a specific gravity of only about 2.67. It is
very malleable, and csn be rolled or beaten
very thin. It is also very ductile and
capable of being drawn into fine wire. The
surface of this metal takes a fine polish and
is not acted upon by the air, but is easily
oxydised by potassa, and in that form
is found in all clay soils. Kaolin
or porcelain clay is composed of
40 parts of aluminum and 45 of silica,
associated with the bases potash, 4bda,
lime and magnesia. Kaolin is found in
many places on Puget sound. I bave re
ceived a fine specimen from Judge War
bass, of 6an Juan island, and it is also
found on Lope* island, Marrowstone
islands and at Port Cresoent. At East
Sound Orcas island the clay is so impreg
nated with aluminum that when dry and
exposed to the air it will become covered
with a white efflorescence. I was at Colonel
May's farm several years since and he had
recently dug a well through a stratum of
clay which was full of aluminum and
the heap of clay thrown out of the well was
covered with an incrustation or efflores
cence like a thick frost. The presence of
aluminum and the sulphate of magnesia
which exists to an excess in some of onr
clay witl, when formed into bricks, be
found occasionally to cover the outer sur
face of new-built walls with a saline efflor
escence like hoar frost.
Aluminum is found in notable quanti
ties in a deposit of iron ore and clay be
tween Irondale, on Port Townsend bay,
and Port Ludlow, on the Little Chhnakum
' This ore has remarkable properties
which I have not before observed. It is
situated in four small buttes or bills whieh
rise out of the prairie about 150 feet high,
covering an area of about 640 acres. They
are about four miles from Port Ludlow,
one and one-half miles from Oak bay and
three miles from Port Townsend bay. At
irondale this ore assays from 17 to 42 per
-tent croppings, and contains aluminum,
silica and lime. This combination forms a
flux which allows the ore to be smelted in
an ordinary foundry furnace.
An experiment tested m the Port Towns
end foundry last summer yielded an iron of
silvery whiteness and very liquid when
melted, retaining many of the character
istics of the Chimakum bog ore, but with
out phosphorus or eulphur. Tests of the
eiay found at the mine prove it to be rich
About the year 1827, Wohler, a German
chemist, first obtained the metal aluminum
by action of potassium upon chloride of
uluminum. For a long time aluminum
was only used in laboratories and, for
alloys for making ornameptal articles, and
its value was equal to gold.
Quite recently a discovery has been made
by which this valuable metal can be pro
duced at about 5 cents per pound, with a
promise that its cost will be still further
reduced. As aluminum exists in na
ture it is a very refractory ore, mak
ing it impossible to reduce it in
aay ordinary - furnace, the only means
which have been found available for its re
duction on a commercial scale being by
electrolysis, a method which has been per
fected by the Pittsburg Reduction Com
pany, of Pittsburg, Pa. The company's
power plant consists of several Babcock &
Wilcox boilers. The engines are three in
number, two being of 200 horse-power of
the Westingbouse compound type, and
one a Westingbouse automatic engine of
The electric plant consists of four direct
current dynamos, made by tbe West
ingbouse Electric and Manufacturing
Company and the United States Electric
Lighting Company of Newark, N. J. The
armatures of these dynamos are shunt
wound, and all of tbem furnish tbe current
for tbe reducing pots. Two of these dy
namos are immense machines. Tbey are
wound to generate a current of 2,500 am
peres at a pressure of fifty volta, runuiug
at a speed of 325 revolutions per minute
Tbese two dynamos are probably tbe larg
est in the country, and they have
been especially made for the work
in this factory. Tbe other two machines
furnish a current of 1,000 amperes each.
Tbe whole of the arrangement of these re
duction works 1s new and novel and
highly successful. Binoe these Pittsburg
reduction works have been operated their
production of tnis valuable metal has been
constantly on tbe Increase, and tbe de
mand is so great that tbe company will
have to enlarge Its plant in order to creata
tbe required supply.
The meager results first obtained in the
laboratory by extracting aluminum from
clay have been followed by more practical
methods, greatly cheapening its produc
tion, until the HaU process, and especially
the (Jowles process, have changed these re
sults from a more costly experiment to •
substance cheap enough to admit of daily
use in tbe mechanical arts. The beat
scientific minds confidently predict that it
will be finally cheapened to a point where
it can in a large measure be substituted for
many use* —for iron, steel, copper and tin.
In fact, Professor Hirscb, of Chicago,
comes to the front with a process by which
he claims that tbe cost of reduction will be
below 5 cents per pound, thus placing it
within the reach of all the arts and manu
As many of your readers may ask to what
uses this new metal can be pat, I will
briefly sum them up.
Tbe experiment in the laboratory retort
which seemed to hare ail the fascination of
alchemy in its possibilities, have developed
into practical results, until every art sad
manufacture now feels its necessity. It Is
almost faultless in ite metallic qualities,
excelling iron and steel in most essential
features. It is also without the defects of
oopper, tin or lead. It is far more doc tile
end malleable than the baser metals, end
quality which it possesses of non-oxidation
in air or water is alone sufficient to recom
mend it for a thousand uses in railway
conomy. It possesses greater strength
than steel while but one-third of the weight,
the specific gravity of aluminum being
but two and one-half times greater than
In view of snob possibilities es are here
named, aluminum may well be called the
metal of the future. It possesses every at
tribute that is most desirable, together with
such remarkable affinity for other metale
that it makes an alloy superior to every
other. It is claimed that aluminum bronse
of 10 per cent, has a breaking strength of
810,000 pouuds, as against 80.000 pounds
lor steel; hence, when the time comes,
which cannot be far distant, we will see
bridges built of aluminum or its alloy,
about one-third the present weight and
much stronger. It offers all the ad-
Tan tages of being stronger, lighter and
more perfect than other metals, while
at the same time it is indestructible from
exydation, fire, or granulation, and when
alloyed with steel or iron, transfuses to
them all these essential qualities.
It is believed that the presence of alu
minum in the Chimakum iron ore is what
gives it its remarkable qualities, which,
when further developed wiil render it one
of the most valuable of all the iron ores in
I am not referring to the bog ore of the
Chimakum valley, which has been used so
successfully at the Irondale smelting
works with the magnetic ore from Tezada
island, B. C., but of the iron ore in the
buttes I have mentioned, whieh has not
been worked further than to test
the remarkable value ' of the
mineral. I mention this iron ore
and the aluminum on Lopes and Orcas
islands, because I have seen them, but
there are many other deposits yet to be
discovered, for the whole country is
full of aluminnm. If what I
have written in this article will attract the
attention of some of our citizens to further
investigate this question, and by
their inquiries elucidate new facts
which may induce Eastern capitalists
to come here and establish reduction
works for the reduction of this valuable
metal, I shall feel that I have been of some
use in directing attention to a possible in
dustry of Puget sound, and not only Puget
sound, but the whole state.
We have passed the stone, the bronze
end the iron age to the steel age, and we
are now in a state of transition to the
aluminum age. The more this metal be
comes known the greater will be the de
mand, and redaction works and manufac
tories will spring up all over the state. I
predict that the next generation will see
the aluminum industry of the state of
Washington one of its most valuable of
products. JAMES Q. SWAB.
SUCCESS FROM THI START.
On* of Seattle's Educational Institutions
That Is Oatning Fame.
Chief among the attractions and ad
vantages of any city are ite educational
institutions, and Seattle has reason to be
proud of her possessions in this way. The
Queen City Business College and Normal
Institute, which was established only two
months ago, already has become recognised
as worthy of high rank, and is adding daily
to its roll of students. It was the intention
of the founders and managers of the insti
tution to make it equal in every way to the
best of Eastern business colleges, and all
modern improved methods that have gained
favor have been put in force.
The college occupies a large part of the en
tire|floor in the Occidental building, a central
and convenient location. The desks and
various fittings of the several rooms are
handsome and substantial, and nothing
that can add to the comfort of the students
has been spared.
The roll now numbers fifty-five, isnd the
work proceeds smoothly in all departments.
In bookkeeping and shorthand the classes
are already of good proportions, and both
teachers and students cheered by the evi
dent progress. A department of telegraphy
has just been addkl, with a thorough
equipment. The plans ot the institution
include class and individual instruction,
with both day and evening sessions.
Students of both sexes and all ages are ad
mitted at any time. The branches taught
cover ev'ry particular of a business educa
tion, with special courses of ornamental
penmanship and language.
Professor Wilson, instructor in penman
ship, comes irom Chicago, with the highest
testimonials, and an inspection of his work
will prove that he deserves them.
Messrs. Dinning and Frankenheimer, the
proprietors of the institution, have begun
well, and the Queen City Business College
will flourish under their wise and thorough

—■The Peora Hunt
Once npon a time there lived at bimia a
rerv pretty girl, the daughter at a poor but
honest district and session* judge. She was
a good girl, but could not help knowing her
power and using it. Her mamma was very
anxious about her daughter's future, as ail
good mammas should be.
When a man is a commissioner and a
bachelor, and has the right of wearing open
work jam tart jewels in gold and enamel
on his clothes, and of going through a door
before every one except a member of coun
cil, a lieutenant-governor or a viceroy, he
is worthy marrying. At least that is what
lad tea aay. There was a commissioner in
Simla in thoee days who was and wore and
did all 1 have said. He was a plain man—
an ngly man—the ugliest man in Asia,
with two exceptions. His was a face to
dream about, and try to carve on a pipe
bead afterward. His name was Saggott—
Barr-Saggott—Anthony Barr-Saggott and
six letters to follow. Departmentally ha
was one ol the best men the government of
India owned; socially he was like a bland
When he turned his attention to Miss
Beightoim believe that Mrs. Beighton wept
with delight at the reward Providence had
sent her in her old age.
Mr. Beighton held his tongue. He waa
an easy-going man.
Now a commissioner is very rich. His
pay is beyond the dreams of avarice—is so
enormous that he can afford to save and
scrape in a way that would almost discredit
a member of council. Most commissioners
are mean, but Barr-Saggott was an excep
tion. He entertained royally, ha horsed
himself well, ha gave dahoes, he waa a
power in tbe land, and ha behaved as such.
Consider that everything I am writing of
took place in an almost prehistoric era in
the history of British India. Some folks
may remember the years before lawn ten
nis was born, when we all played croquet.
There were seasons before that, if you will
believe me, when even croquet had not been
Invented, and archery which was revived
in England in 1844, was as great a peet as
lawn tennis Is now. People talked learned
ly about "holding" and "losing," "steles,"
"rellexed bows," "fifty-six-pound bows,"
"backed" or "self-yew bows," as we talk
now about "rallies," "volleys," "smashes,"
"returns" and "six teen-ounce racks ta."
Miss Beighton shot divinely over ladies'
distance—sixty yards, that is—and was ac
knowledged the best lady archer in Simla.
Men called her "Diana o! Tarra-Devi."
Barr-Saggott paid her gnat attention,
and, as I bare said, tha heart of her mother
was uplifted in consequence. Kitty Beigh
ton took matters more eaimly. It was
pleasant to be singled oat by • commis
sioner with letter* after hie name, and to
fill the hearts of other girls with bed feel
ings. But therp was no denying the fact
that Barr-Saggott was phenomenally ugly,
and all his sttempts to adorn himself only
made him more grotesque.
He was not christened "The Langur"—
which means gray ape—for nothing. It
was pleasant. Kitty thought, to have him
at her feet, but it was better to esoape from
him and ride with the graceless Cubbon—
the men in a dragoon regiment at (J m ball a
—the boy with a handsome face and no
prospects. Kitty liked Cubbon more than
a little. He never pretended for a moment
that he was anything less than head orer
heels in love with her, for he was an honest
boy. 8o Kitty lied now and again from tha
stately wooings of Barr-Saggott to the oom
pany of young Cubbon, and was scolded
by her mamma in consequence.
"But, mother," she said, "Mr. Saggott
is such—such—a—is so fsarfully ugly, you
"My dear," said Mrs. Bnithton, piously,
"we cannot be other than an all-ruling
Providence has made us. Besides, TOO
witt take precedence of your own mother,
yon know. Think of that and be reasona
Then Kitty put np her little chin and said
irreverent things about precedence and
commissioners and matrimony. Mr.
Beighton rubbed the top of his head, for
he was an easy-going man.
Late in the season, when he judged the
time was ripe, Barr-Saggett developed a
plan which did great credit to his adminis
trative powers. He arranged an archery
tournament for ladies, with a most sump
tuous diamond bracelet as a prise. He
drew up his terms skillfully, and every one
•aw that the bracelet was a gift to Miss
Beighton, the acceptance carrying with it
the hand and the heart of Commissioner
Barr-Saggott. Tbe terms were a St. 1 Leon
ard's round—thirty-six shots at sixty
yards—under the roles of the Simla Toxo
▲ll Simla was invited. There was beau
tifully arranged tea tables under the deo
dars at Annandale, where the grand stand
is now; and alone in its glory, winking in
the sun, sat tbe diamond bracelet in a blue
velvet case. Miss Beighton was anxious—
almost too anxious to compete. On tbe
appointed afternoon all Simla rode down
to Annandale to witness the judgment of
Paris turned upside down. Kitty rode
with young Cubbon, and it was easy to see
tbat the boy was troubled in his mind. He
must be held innocent of everything that
followed. Kitty was pale and nervous,
and looked long at the bracelet Barr-
Saggott was gorgeously dressed, even more
nerfons than Kitty, and more hideous
Mrs. Beighton smiled condescendingly,
as befitted the mother of a potential com
missioneress, and the shooting began, all
the world standing a semi-circle as the la
dies came out one after the other.
Nothing is so tedious as an archery com
petition. They shot, and they shot, and
tbey kept on shooting till the sun left the
valley and tittle breexes got up in the deo
dars. and people waited for Miss Beigton
to shoot and win. Cubbon was at one horn
of the semi-circle round the shooters and
Barr-Saggott at the other. Miss Beighton
was last on the list. The scoring had been
weak, and the bracelet, plus Commissioner
Barr-Saggott, was hers to\ cetainty.
Tbe commissioner strung her bow with
his own sacred bands. She stepped for
ward, looked at the bracelet, and her first
arrow went true to the bsir—full into the
heart of the "gold"—counting nine points.
Young Cubbon on the left turned white,
and his Devil prompted Barr-Saggott to
smile. Mow, horses used to shy when Barr-
Saggott smiled. Kitty saw tbat smile.
She looked to her left front, gave an almost
imperceptible nod to Cubbon, and went cu
I wish I could describe the scene that fol
lowed. It was out of the ordinary and
most improper. Miss Kitty fitted bet ar
rows witb immense deliberation, so that
every one might see what sue was doing.
She was a perfect sbot, and her forty-six
pound bow suited her to a nicety, bbe
pinned tbe wooden legs of tbe target with
great care four successive times. She
pinned tbe wooden top of tbe target once,
and all the ladies looked at each other.
Then she began some fancy sbooting at the
white, which, if you hit it, counts exactly
one point She put live arrows into the
It was wonderful archery, but seeing that
her business was to make "gold*" and win
the bracelet, Barr'Saggott turned a delicate
green like young water cress. Next she
shot over the target twice, tben wide to tbe
left twioe—always with tbe same delibera
tion—while a chilly bush fell over the com
pany, and Mrs. Beighton took out ber
handkerchief. Tben Kitty sbot at the
ground in front of tbe target and split sev
eral arrows. Tbe she made a red—or even
points—just to show what she could do if
she liked > and she finished up her amazing
performance with *>me more fancy shoot
