a* <iijy i'unjney'fc ;»roposel new line to Wood
land par*. 1 ie result of build.ng so rnsny
lines is tnat none are earning dividends, while
severs! are r inning at a loss. The money in
vented in these roads is very largo'y local capi
ta:, and the situation it such that the investors
are unable to luiiie a turn of this rn nev nir aro
the street rail way securities avai able for b. r
rowing purposes. Mr. '"ark's task, study
ing the situation, will ba to suggeat some
method of operating the lines of tae various
companies in tMs city on a more economical
basis, with a view to getting matters in such
shape that outside capital will be interested in
these enterprise*, thereby releasing a great deal
o? iocsl capita', needed for investment in other
leal en let prises.
The old management of the Consolidated be
came weary ol trying to soive the problem. I*
li. Griffith. the l-.rrfest local stockholder, some
time ago tried to effect a consolidation of the
Varioua companies, but they could not agree
upon a satisfactory basis, and the matter was
dropped. The Eastern stockholders were then
invited to try the:r hand at managing the prop
erty, with the renUit stated. There has been no
change of ownership of the stock. Mr. Griffith
still retaining his holding-*, as do l>r. E. C. KU
bourne and others of the old board, some of
whom, however, held only nominal amounts ot
the stock.
Mr. Blunch said last night:
No, we do not Intend to make any radical
change m the policy of the company. We in
tend merely to find the most economical method
of operating our road, 1 here are so many dnss
hers mat tae business is very mueb cut up, and
if the policy of building more roads Ik continued
it must surely result in a deterioration of the
splendid street car service this <jty now enjoys.
There are more than enough luit-s here now,
and th»* city has enough street railway mileage
for a city of 4)0,000 inhabitant*. As far ai ex
tensions are concerned, we shall not make any
tb«t are not fully warranted by t m neeeaaitiea
of tbe situation. We have a franchise lor the
line from Fremont to Mallard, but F do not an JW
whether we shall build itor not yet.

term r-»?ii »>ias applied to a political

I UmiV'l, l hat in our opiu.on the greatest need

; ble.
The indorsement of the re>olutions was dis
i cussed, each being considered separately. Rev.
! Mr. Titrable, A! Central a, wno presented them,
! advocated their adoption. W 4 th resr ird to
j changing the name of the Prohibition party, be
j sa.d he h.id b en a candidate lor judge in bis
j county, and h.s experience during the last cam
| paign was that the title of the party gave people
i unacquainted with its platform the idea that it
i was a partv with one idea—prohibition—and
' not broa 1 enough in its princip e> for a political
j organization. A large part of the campaign had
i been spent in trying to convince the people that
this was a mistake and that the party p!at:orm
! covered all the reform pnuciplas of tne People's
I party, and more too.
Var.ous amendments ware offered without be
i ing seconded, until Rvv. E. B. Sutton moved to
! substitute the word unfavorable for the word
unfortunate, which was carried.
With regard to the newspaper resolution, 11. E.
Kelsey, Jonas Bushell and Rev. Richard Bush
el! said that the idea of establishing a daily pa
per to advocate the Prohibition a use was imprac
ttcable.altnough it was certainly very desirable,
j Mr. Kelsey said be was often offended by the
sentiments of the secular press, but we must
i huve the news, and the best newspapers were
j the very ones which expressed these hostile
• sentiments.
| Rev. Mr. Trimble urged the great necessity of
i such an organ. During tbe last campaign the
| party had no means of reaching the voters or of
refu'ing the slanders of the opposition press.
| He had always impressed upon young people
j that they should read the pai.y papers a:.d aeep
| abreast of the t me.», but these very papers c >:i d
i not oe taken iuto aCnr.stian boufeao.d with >ut
! great danger of contaminnt tig the morals of the
young, lie considered that the secular pre»s
was subsidized by tne enemy.
All three resolutions were, however, finally
! endorsed and the toliowing were also adopted:

semblyman from San Francisco, was m.smug.
The Republicans tried to delay t. c proceedings
until McGowan could be found a:«i brought in,
but were unsuccessful and the v :-te proceeded
without McGowan's absence being exp a.ned.
The Democrats, who had a totif of 59 votes,
voted soiidiv for White, as did Burse. n .n-parti

Reams' vote lor Wh te had been ~ bougnt aud
that Marion Cannon, Populist an-d Damociatic
congressman from the tixth district, had

platform, where he made a sueech. He referred
t > the charge male ty Bretz tbaj the Kearns

election of a senator by the people, and said he
would favor the enforcement of contracts by
transcontinental railway companies to the gov

ses-ion last evening aud admitted de'egates
frira the stonecutters' Union. This is the first

the different unions retorted adversely ou the
proposition to send a delegation from each
union to a iabor congress to be held at Olympia
during the *ess.on of the legislature, as the gen
eral opinion was that the expense would be too
great. The idea of a representative meeting was
concurred in, but it was thought that not more
than four or live delegates from all the labor or
ganizations in the city would oe n . ceSsary. All
the unions could act in conjunction ia the se
lection of them.

He had just learned of the action o: Representa

his vote to Turner, and was so filled with in
aignati< n that he sent the following dispatch to
him: "if you don't stand by Alien, In my
opinion you can go East instead of coming tack
to Snohomish." '-He knows that nine-tenths of
the people oi Snoh-imisa county want Ailen re
e.ected," said Capt. Irvine, ' aud his desertion
oi Aiiea's cause is simp.y betraying the trust
confided in him by the people of our county. I
have a good mind to go over to Olympia myself
and do what I can to offset Ro-coe's desertion."
