Th* first through passenger trein over

That ia, it is scheduled to do so, but the

train: have not yet arrived here, and whan
tbey ••Jo arrive tbey will have to be cleaned
and '•••at in ahape tor their return trip. The
trairv was expected to arrive here yesterday
evening. bat by some unexplained accident
It «'ii detained on the switchback about
ten V ours, and may not iret into Seattle
until late this morning. The Great North
ern Company advertiaea that thia new
transcontinental train will consist of an
entif-tiy new equipment, com prising first
and second class coaches, free colonist
cars, buffet. Horary, parior and dining
cars together with first-class sleepers.
While that small portion of the travel
ing public, according to Mr. Hill, which
nswvjjr buya first-ciaae railway ticket*
has i- «d the price of these tickets between
the !"<jast and the East reduced %'2o by the
act>4n' of the Great Northern railway, it ia
dirtlult to *e* what be haa gained by the
epeniion. By the action of the other
hne.i :n reducing their ratea correspond

modations on Mr. Hili'e line and thoae
on >he other*, which be assigned as a
reas-.n for making the cut, stili remain.
Thn ia. the other lines have free colonist
•i*eT*r*, cheap second-cisss sleepers, and
expensive first-class aleepera, while
the Great Northern has no cheap
*ec«od-cla*a sleepers, although it haa
the other*. Notwithstanding thia
advantage of the other line*. »t is not
thought likely that Mr. Iliil will make an
other reduction. He will be more likely
to ( it on a aecond-clsaa sleeper alao, and
tha* bring hia line into active competition
for ;JJ classes of paaaenger*.

tha' notice had been aent out to ail the

Like that of the Northern Pacific,
tbe reduction i* made only on firat-class
far'* both way*, and on second-class fares
At the Union Pacific office no advice*
were received yesterday that that road In
terred to meet the new ratea, but as the
reaction of the Northern Pacific applies
to Portland as well aa Seattle, it la ex
pected that the Union Pacific will follow
the cat of the other roada todav.
The Northern Pacific waa selling tickets
yesterday at the reduced ratea, not to be
however, until today.
T.*ie Great Northern opened it* city

Difference Between War* In Vrel|ht and

•V'v passenger rate war 1a a mere diver

eaidrex-Chkirman E. P. Vining, of the late
Association at the Ar

a ravlroad ia its life'a blood. It amounts
to o?< -half of its business, whereas the
business amounts to only a
qua tjir, the other fourth being made up
by t ji* mall and express contracts, etc.
"the total amount of products and mer
chandise consumed can not be stimulated
to liny appreciable extent by reduced
t reexportation rates. A certain amount
of WJieat is raised in a district for expor
tati- j. If freicrht rates were reduced to

sho<*ii the remarkable fact that, making
alio*.\nre for the difference tetween pros
perils and hard times and the develop

am nut of i-asscnger fares received bv a
railirmd remain about the same. Whether
the rates be high or low. the
amount of travel ia stimulated bv
red u.-«xl fares, so that the loss on
each, individual fare is fully made up by
the r icreaaed number of fares. The only
difference to a railroad company occa

Tike latest Phase of the Drink Qaeetlen
: -SaiieeUaa to C. T. A. Seeletlee.
The Jane number of tbe Catholic Wmld,
the leading monthly of the Roman Cath
ode church, published in New York city,
has the following article, which is finely
iltustrsted. The author has evidently
given a great deal of time to the investiga
tion of tbe Keeley treatment, and bis con
clusions will have great weight. The ar
ticle, which is too lengthy for reproduc
tion in toto, concludes as follows:
'it has been said that surprises await th*
skeptic or tbe doubter who look* into th*
l»eeley care; and it may ba added that if
t&e investigation be honest and thorough,
a?i incredulity as to the validity of the
claims made for the remedy is sure to be
dispelled. The experience of one investi
gator may, in this connection, prove in
teresting. Although Dr. Keeley has been
treating inebriates for some fourteen or
fifteen years, the general public knew very
I'tUeof him or nia core until about two
yyars ago. In the latter part of I*9o vaguo
riimors of marvels that were being
brought bv a country doctor in the little
village of Dwight began to spread in Chi
cigo. and Mr. Joseph Medill, editor of the
f 'nicaiio Tribune, became interested in the
ipatter. Reporters were sent to the vil-
L»*e on the prairie; I)r. Keeley, bis pa
tients and nis "graduates" were inter
viewed, and the Tribune gave publicity to
tiie facts ascertained. Then ensued some
direct correspondence between the Chi
cago editor and the Dwight physician.
"He(Dr. Keeley)proposed that in the
interest of medical science and fallen, de
based man, I should send him five or
isore of tbe worst drinkers and opium eat
ers that 1 could procure, and if he did not
rid them of their overmaatering appe
tite for alcohol and opium he would per
sbually pay all their expense* at Dwight,
c'-iarge uothing for hia own aervices, and
{.uhiicly admit that hia remedy was a
ailure; but that if he cured them, as he
claimed he could, and I myself was to be
t|ie judge that they were .cured, then I
Should pay the cost of the cures."
Considering this proposition an emi
nently fair one, th* editor at once accept
ed it.
"I lost no time in hunting up five of the
worst and most confirmed and irreclaima
ble drunkards to be found in Chicago who
could be induced to make the pilgr.mage
to Dwight. They were all paat middle
life and had been hard drinkers for many
years, and some ot them had had more
t£ian one experience with delirium tre-
Uiens. After each had been a month at
Vwight he was discharged cured and sent
Pack to me clothed in his right mind; the
l|ankering lor liquor completely oblit
erated; the blotchea and rum-blossoms
were gone; tbe red, watery eyes had be
come bright, and the physical health of
i-li seemed completely' restored. The
poison had been expelled from their sys
tems, and they looked as if a mirale ha l
lieen j»erforraed on each one."
t Mr. Medill was con viced, and the
tribune editorially indorsed the Keeley
Mold cure. The Pittsburc Commercial-
Xazritr an I the Chicago Herald aiso m
test.irated the cure and became satisfied of
His etfi ary. Tne confidence inspired by
t|he countenance of these important
v>urnals, whose standing precluded the
Ilea that they were merely the hireling
Advertisers of a quack medicine, gave an
taipetus to the movement ot drunkards

•Jifferent parts of the country.
its wospExrrL socraaa.
; Of these branches thers are at present
jn the I'nited States more thsn 100; and
nhipments of the Keeley Kemtdy have
Jeen made to England and Scotland,
j-'rance, Ctermany, Canada, China. Japan
<n.d Australia. To the Double Chloride
of tiold cure, in a word, may now t>e ap
plied the dictum of a distinguished
*\merican: "It is a condition which con
dor.* as BC< a theory."
. Of the pathology of drunkenness aa a
ii*ea«e, and of the question of medical
/thics involve*! in Dr. Keeley's refusal to
mate his formula public, we have little or
.-nothing to say. Ample information con
cerning the former may be obtained by
-forwarding a postal card to the Keeley
yompany. Dwight, III.; while the latter
subject is one which may safely be
•lett to polemical physicians, and,
tnoreover. one to which the general,
;non-professional public is supremely in
different. The one important question
'S noerrung the Keeley treatment is: Does
■it > are the drunkard? The statement of
•it* author that it does, in ninety-five cases
out of a hundred, i* corroborated bv fully
lOO.iW men who say: "Each of us has
Ibeen a drunkard, and the Keeley cure has
saved us." Some of these thousands un
derwent the treatrcent three, tour and five
years ago; and it has yet to be shown that
more than 5 per cent, of those treated re
iapve into the dr nking habit. The United
iStatea government. slK>ut a year ago, eni
vpha« zed its indorsement of the cure by
that the Kee 4 ev remedies should
:le intnxluced into the seven national i»nd
lan-1 twenty- :ie •♦tats bouics for disabied
?B>'-di'"S aud *auars.
In view id these facts, we respectfully
submit that it In-hooves our t'.ithoiic Total
A s'. netice Societies, av !..»d.es thoroughly
iti earnest in the practically philanthropic
w. rk of reclaiming the inebriate, to re og

convince them that the Keeiey cure effects
a tithe of the g.xxl c.aimed for it. it is
their duty to give it their sanction an i co-

The report of C. M. Sheafe, receiver of
the Washington Southern Railway Com
pany, on the bide received for the grading
of the Gofdsboro creek bottom cut-off,
were tiled in the superior court yesterday,
together with a tabulated atatement of
the bide. Proposals tor the grading of tbe
first 8,000 feet and for the entire cut-off.
four and six-tenth* miles, were submitted
and the bid* ot J. G. McLean on both
propositions ar* the lowest There is a
great difference in the amount of the bids.
Tbe lowest bid for tbe grading of tbe whole
cut-off is $16,553.50 and the higbeat $24.-
689.25. For the first 8,000 feet the lowest
bid is $5,923.27 and the higbeat $10,682 42.

The receiver asks to be allowed to enter
into a contract with McLean for the grad
ing of the lesser distance at the price bid.
He estimatea that it will cost about SI,OOO
to aurface and lay the tie* and raila on
this part of the cut-off. As to the remain
ing distance the receiver says that negoti
ations are pending with the Grainger Lum
ber Company for the speedy completion of
its contract for the grading. If by the time
he has finished the track laying on tbe first
8.000 feet the Griinger Lumber Company
haa not decided to complete ita contract,
the receiver asks to be allowed to let the
contract to other parties, presumably to
McLean, whose bid is the lowest.

the road, but the builder secured the con

for an injunction to prevent military in

sustains the injunction pending suit, and

Ha Will Be Kztradited—Afraid of a Cali
fornia Mob.
Detectire Bolton Rogers. who has been
assisting Sheriff C. A. H. Wartield, of Mer
ced count v. Cat., at Victoria in the case of
Rev. A. R. Reams, alias Furlong, who is
wanted at Merct-d on the charge of abduct
ing pretty Lucy Rucker. the organist of
hia church, returned to the city for a short
time last nicht on the steamer Umatilla.
He states positively that Rev. Mr. Reams
will have to face his former friends and
parislioners, notwithstanding his efiorta
to avoid extradition.
"it teems that Reams docs not deny bis
guilt, but places the blame on his wife,
who is also quite young. The minister is
making his legal fight on the point that
tbe Cauadian law fixes the age of ab
duction at 16, while in California it is 13.
The girl at tbe time of the arrest stated
that she was 18, thus placing her outside
the limits of the Canadian law. Tbe father
of the girl, however, is on the way to Vic
toria with certified copies of tiie county
records to show that she will not be 16 uu
til next September. This evidence will go
a great way toward settling the matter and
facilitating the granting of the extradition
papers at Ottawa. State papers are on the
way from Sacramento to Washington City,
and from there the national papers will be
sent to the Canadian capital for action.
"Yes," said Detective Rogers last night,
as his keen eye showed that light of de
termination so familiar to criminals when
he was chief of police here, "the Rev.
Reams will have to give up tbe battle and
return to California, lie practically ad
mits his crime, but is such a coward that
he fears to face the people of the town
where he has done so much to be censured
for. I simply went to Victoria to assist
Sheriff Warfield, and must say that we
owe a great deal to the provincial officers
for their courtesy and assistance. The
sheriff left Sacramento with state extradi
tion papers to the governor of Washing
ton, having been informed that Rev.
Reams and his pretty companion were in
Tacoma. In fact, I believe they were at
that time, but left, and after passing
through Seattle, went direct to Victoria.
While on the way the sher.ff received in
formation that his people had gone to
Victoria, and wired buck to Sacramento
tor national extradition papers, lie ar
rived in this city laat Wednesday and.
asked me to go with him to Victoria.
When we reached there we found that
Rvams had secured the services of Yates
Jk Taylor, prominent attorneys, and in
tended to tight the case on the ground
that the girl was I£, and therefore as the
Canadian law made the age of abduction
16, there was no abduction at all.
"Tne law is interpreted at Victoria in this
case according to the Canadian statutes
notwithstanding the offense was com
mitted in California. The sheriff engaged
the services of Attorney Lindsley Crease, *
son of one of the supreme court judges,
and then we visited Superintendent of
Police Sheppard. From that time on the
chief practically give up his time to tbe
case and assisted us in a thousand ways.
Tbe next morning we visited Reams in the
provincial jail and were given all the
privileges that cuuld be asked for. The
preacher did not denv that he beat his
wife at Merced the morning of the day b«
ran away with Miss Rucker, but claimed
that Bhe was to blame, having called htm
a name which would not look well in
print. He told the sheriff that he did not
want to return as he was atraid of the
mob that would receive him. He seems
to think his life will be taken when he
reaches M«*rced. The sheriff gave him
every opportunity to return, but he pre
ferred to cause all the trouble possible and
delay ttie process. We learned from some
of the officials who had charge of him that
he was very anxious to find some law that
would com|>el the sheriff to surround him
with eight or ten men during his future
journey to California."
A Walter Takes Chloroform.
E. H. Hnyder, a waiter at the Madron*
hotel, tried to end bia life last night by
drinking and inhaiinx a small quantity of
chloroform. The placebo chose for tak
ing ttie poison was in ft cottage near th«
hotel, where he was fuand by his wife in
an unconscious condition. A physician
was railed, and in due coura* of time
Snyder revived. He said be waa aorry
that his attempt had been frustrated. The
only cause that can be ascribed isj-alousy.
