« h iwwlig In this city yesterday, at
which Depart rdent Commander John
N. Scott presided, declared its opposi
tion to the proposed consolidation of
the management of tbe Soldier** Home
with tbat of all other state institutions.
The reeoiutkme read m follows:
"Whereas, A proposition to pending
la oar state legislature for the aoneoli
gation by legislative enactment of the
sever*! boards of management of our
several state Intltutlons of a benevo
lent, educational sad penal character.
Including that of the Soldiers' Home,
into one. end,
"Whereas. The fiddlers' Home afore
said to peculiarly exceptional In Its mis
sion, Its character and its operations,
and.
"Whereas, It must be conceded that
the character sad disposition of its
beneficiaries have their marked peculi
arities, resulting not only from ace and
decrepitude, but also from their vivid
recollect!on and keen appreciation of
the sacrifices made and disabilities in
curred that the nation might live and
popular government might not fail,
which can be more properly untf&a|pod
and appreciatively administered to by
those who have shared In the service
rendered, or at least, have made these
peculiarities their special study, and
"Whereas, The past administration
erf the Soldiers' Moms by the veteran
soldiers who have been uniformly, by
the law of custom, charged with its
duOes, has been conspicuously suc
cessful and exceptionally economical;
therefore, be it
"ReaoSved, By the council of ad
ministration of the department of
Washington and Alaska, G. A. R.. in
the name and behalf of tfcst department
of the Grand Army of Republic,
that we emphatically protest against
the incorporation of tho management
of the Soldiers' Home with that of the
other stata Institutions, and earnestly
recommend that its management be
continued in the future as it has been
in the past, under a distinct and sep
arate board, composed, so long as It
may be practicable In view of their ad
vancing age and accumulating intfirmi
tVas, of vetarun soldiers of the republic
whose practical experience peculiarly
fits them for administering to the wants
and idlosyncrsclea of their comrades.
"Resolved. That a copy of these reso
lutions be forwarded to the governor of
the state and also one to the lieutenant
governor and the speaker of the bouse
of representatives each for presenta
tion to the houses over which they re
spectively preside."
The time of the next state encamp
ment was fixed as to commence June 12

Week-Day Service* at Alison's Chnrch.
The first meeting of a week of regular
preaching services at the First Presby
terian church was held last evening.
The pastor. Dr. Alison, preached from
the text Matthew ix:l2: "They that be
whole need not a physician, but they that
be sick." He spoke of sin analogically
as a disease. He also sought to diagnose
it by discovering its general symptoms,
to-wlt: Lack of appetite' for spiritual
things and lack of desire for religious
work. He spoke al.*o of Jesus as "the
Great Physlcjsn" who always cures, and
urged tbos* to come who desire to be
cured of this malady of sin. Quit® a num
ber cams forward and offered themselves
for church membership on profession of
their faith. The attendance was large
and the interest manifested most en
couraging. The members of the Y. P.
S. C. E. agr aiding the pastor 1n the
work by occupying the front seats and
leading the cringing.
Dr. Alison wilt preach again this e\-en-"

HE OPPOSES THE HELM BILL.
Samuel Hill Says It WUI Retard the
State's Development.
Samuel Hill, of St. Paul, leaves today
over the Great Northern railroad for
Spokane, where he Will iitfeet the rest of
his party and accompany them East.
He was asked yesterday whether he wua
going to Olympla In regard to the rail
road bill now befor% the legislature and
answered with emphasis:
"No, I am opposed to lobbying. I have
been hers for some day* and while I
should have gone before any committee,
IX Invited, I can not go now." '
"What dp you think of the so-called
Helm bill reducing' railroad rates?"
"I think Is should be entitled a bill to.
'retard the development of Washington.'
You need men, money and railroads to
develop your state. How db you expect
to get the railroads? Oapltal can no longer
be secured to buiki short lines. In
vestors will not buy the bonds. The mis
fortunes which have overtaken the North
ern Pacific, Seattle, Lake Shore A East
ern. Union Pacific and Oregon Railway A
Navigation Company prove that present
freight rates, considering the volume of
businee* are not excessive. Speculative
railroad building ended with the panic of
ISO.
"Where do ye u expect to enlist capital
for railroads unlese you allow them to
earn a reasonable interest on money ln
vssied? Are the people of Washington
prepared to put up the money? Is 5 per
cent, per annum on money invested too
much to earn? In the older stages the
Oreat Northern has always found its

Unless you get outside capital your state

"I had hoped the adjustment of eur

!t * meeting held yesterday
afternoon the board of public work* !n
accordance with the city charter aa
M«»ded. assigned Its three members to
look after the various departments of
which the board has chars*, a* follows:
_^''* xana "- superintendent of strata
and sewers; L. B Youngs, superintendent
of the "rater department, and J. W. Van
Broeklta, superintendent of bufldl&g*
bridges and wharves.
A. W. Shaker, O. a Marble, WllKara
Johnson, a. Nomdge and F. A. Marrow
eent a communication to the board, in
whfeh they aaked for employment on the
Ctourh tunnel. The aaen are bricklayer*,
and when the city more than a year ago
refused to pay union wages they severed
their connecUona with the union In order
that they could continue in the employ
of the city. At that time they were work
ing at the Take Union tunnel. A* the
ttaaael neared completion City Engineer
Thomson, in accordance with authority
given him by the city council, put a new
force of men at work In the South tua
aek The Lake Union tunnel waa com
pleted several month* ago, and the men
(waned are now out of employment.
They say that some of them hare been
able to get some piece work at SI a day.
but to has not enabled them to support
their families. For that reason they pre
sented their petition to the board, asking
to be put to work on the South tunnel.
Mr. Butter field, foreman of the tunnel,
and City Engineer Thomson, the men
say, have refused to make any chancres
in the present tunnel force. The men
take the position that, as they severed
their affiliations with their union in order
to work at reduced sages for the city,
the latter should in return divide up the
work. %
The board referred the petition to the
superintendent of the water department
with instructions to look into it and make
a report.
dty Engineer Thomson said yesterday
of the petition: "The persons who signed
the petition, with one and possibly two
exceptions, had several months" work on
the Lake Union tunnel. I expected that
after the completion of the tunnel they
would continue at work on the sewers
then being constructed. They had beoo
employed by the foreman of the tunnel
and I never Interferxed wQh them. The
foreman of the South tunnel has a force
of men at work who were employed while
the men referred to were employed and I
have not lnter/Vrred with them."
A Mla|ng Girl From Everett.
A man giving his name as T. McGrath
and his residence as Everett, reported to
Sergt. Sullivan at police headquarters
yesterday that Miss Blanche Johnson,
aged S3 years, took the evening train
from Everett February 18 for Seattle,
and that since then her friends had never
heard from her. She intended to visit
Louise Otto, who lives near the foot of
Pine street, on the water front. The
missing girl >a described as & feet 7 inches
tall, of fair complexion, light hair, blue
eyes and wore a blue dress. Her suck
had a fur collar. She would be apt to
aeek employment aa a chambermaid.
George H. Jones Is In Seattle.
The uneasiness which has prevailed at
Port Town send over the absence of Capt.
George H. Jones, a well-known attorney.
Is entirely uncalled for. Clerk Kennedy,
of the police, who Is a personal friend of
Jones, «w him on Flke street Saturday
evening. Mr. Jones said at that time
that business would detain him Is Seattle
uatll Monday.
The new vegetable shortening is
the most popular food product of
the day. Its use means good food,
good health and a goodly saving
in the end. Since the introduc
tion of Cottolene, lard has no
longer place in food or kitchen.
<§ffofene
serves every purpose of lard, and
serves it without grease, odor or
indigestion. Those who have
given Cottolene a fair trial never
go back to lard. Be sure and get
the genuine. Don't let any dealer
palm off any of the many worth
ies* imitations on you.
