pines* Personal News.
tllllon Club
If entitled to
greet credit. This organization hat developed
excellently. Last summer It was held up, kept
together and engineered principally by Mr. Fred
K. Btruve and Mr. John Gibbon, jr.
The enthusiasm was not remarkable, but
these young men by their personal popu
larity drew to them enough support
to make the hops succeed. The germans of the
winter season have, however, proved so com
pletely successful that the club will find no
trouble in the future In maintaining a perma
nent organization. The past week was bright
ened up by a fine ooncertof the Evening Musical
Club, the silver wodding of Mr. and Mrs. Cow
dan, the coucert of Professor Bachman's juve
nile orchestra and the miniature World's fair
and electrical exhibit given at Plymouth Con
gregational church. To those who have lost faith
in Seattle and her future destiny, one need
point only to the city social und educational
development. Go whore you will, the investi
gator will bo confronted by the social currents,
movement and aspirations of a live and pro
gressive community. The remarkable feature
of all this activity and bustle Is that it is not
spasmodic, but permanent Take a case in
point. Those who are acquainted with women
theoretically, aud not practically, already and
willing at all times to assert the claim that she
goes into social movements with great vim and
energy, but her enthusiasm quickly dies out
and that the institutions under her guidance pos
sess only fleeting influence and are short-lived.
In Seattle there are easily half a dozen institu
tions that refute this charge. There is the Cen
tury Club, the Ladies' Musical Club, the Wo
men's Christian Temperance Union, the Ladies'
Relief Society, the Renaissance Club and a host
of similar organizations all essentially social in
their nature. These bodies have been uni
formly successful in their operation and are by
no means all of the institutions in the city con
trolled and managed by representatives of the
fairer and gentler sex. It is a matter of pride,
too, to note that several of the most valued mem
bers of the city library association are ladiee.
Plymouth Church World'e Fair.
The "World's Fair" at Plymouth Congrega
tional church Friday evening was one of the
most successful and enjoyable affairs of the
kind ever held in the city. The church parlors

Author George W. Cable Coming.
The literary and social circles of Seattle are
enthusiastically engaeed in an effort to make
the reception to Mr. George W. Cable, the dis
tinguished novelist and lecturer, in every way
creditable and satisfactory. The lectures are to
be given in the First Methodist Episcopal
church, corner of Third and Marion, tomorrow
and Tuesday of this week. The sale of tickets
has beeu very large and already promises to in
sure Mr. Cable two of the largest audiences he
will have in the Northwest. These lectures
have met with the most favorable reception
wherever given. They consist of readings and
delineations of character as found in Mr. Cable's
works, and he is pronounced by the general
verdict to be superior to Charles Dickens iu the
splendid manner with which he sustains the
undivided attention and sympathy of his audi
ence from the beginning to the close of the lec
ture, while his singine of Creole songs is always
greeted with heartiest applause. It is gratify
ing to know that he will be so well received
here. Tickets are now on sale at the usual
peaces and are in the hands of tho ladies of the
Aid Society of this popular church. To their
untiring efforts much credit is due for the
already assured success of Mr. Cablo in Seattle.

The Movement Suggested By m Bright
Society Woman.
One more unfortunate
Weary of treath.
Rashly importunate,
Gone to her death.
• * • • • •
Touch her not scornfully j
Think of her mournfully;
Gently and humanly;
Not of the stains of her;
All that remains of her
Now is pure, womanly.
Alas! for the rarity
Of Christian charity
I'nder the sun!
Oh! it was pitiful,
Near a whole city full
Home had she none
• *•••• e
Perishing gloomily.
Spurned by contumely,
Bold inhumanity,
Burning insanity,
Into her rest:
Cress her hands humbly,
As if praying dumbly,
Over her breast.
Owning her weakness,
Her evii behaviour.
And leaving with meekness,
Her sins to her Saviour.
These lines of Hood's were brought forcibly
to the writer's mind on reading in the POST
INTELLIGENCER of March 17, an account of the
suicide of an unfortunate girl only 18 years
old. The writer has also learned that little
more than a year ago this poor girl was sweet
faced and innocent, trying bravely to earn an
hone*t living—a girl of 17 alone in a big, bustl
ing city. Ail must admit that the contest was
an unequal one, and it was small wonder that
the girl failed, and alas! after the firit step in
the wrong direction, there are so many going
the same [way, that one frail girl, even
though she longs ever so earnestly
to turn back can mate but iitt'e hesdway
acaiust the crowd that comes pushing and
jesthng from behind, so, her downward course
once be*un, she is apt to follow it to the pitiless
end, whether it &e to the suicide's grave, or
worse yet, to the lowest social status, where she
drags out a life of shame and misery until such
time as death mercifully lcleases her and the
pitying-all Father taxes the poor sinful one
Surely in Hi« infinite wisdom and mercy He
will not judze such a one one whit more
harshly than He will the one who was Artt re
sponsible for the wrong step Newspaper para
graphs like that in the POST-INTELLIGENCE* are
so painfully common that people read them
wiUi tear Ml j more Uiaa a pa«*iag thrill oi p.ty,
not stopping to think of the suffering and bat
tle against temptation and the heartache em
bodied in such a paragraph, or that it is a life's
epitaph. "Alas!" indeed. 4, for the rarity of
Christian charity," and alas! that in a city with
seme fifty churches and thousands of good men
Bnd women, that not one band should oe out
stretched to avert such tragedies.
The writer of this article Is a new-comer to
this city who sees much to adr* re in Seattle
and who also tees the great need of philan
thropic work here
In a city as large as Seattle, with ita small
army of working women, there should be a
working-girl's clubhouse, where girls away
from home and friends could board If they
wished, and have the comforts and protecting
influence of a home, or whera girls temporarily
out of work, or perhaps ill, could find a safe
shelter. Such an institution as this, with a
pleasant clubroom, made attractive by music,
books, pictures, magazines, etc., where g.rlt
could spend their evenings pleasantly and
profitably, would do m incalculable amount of
good, as do similar institutions in the large
Eastern cities. If a movement of this kind
should be started, I doubt not that it would re
ceive heip from all souices—from the pre-s, al
ways alive to the best interests of Seattle— from
business men, who can but see that such insti
tutions are to the honor and glory of any city;
from fathers and mothers, from the cnur';;.es,
from teachers, artists, lecturers and musicians.

figured in the capture of George Swiloos after
his escape from Sheriff De Lorialer, was iu the
