Httmson Mill Company, at Ballard, has
given go great erxouragemant to the com

and other members of the committee are
gratified that their labors are about to
end.
It la understood that the Northern Pa

formation to that effect has yet been re

the railroad companies, the money and
land eonlrlbuted by private cittaena leave
no roaa tor doubt that the subsidy will ba

The finance f ommlttee of the Chambeg

and the solicitors for donations will enter

BIRDIE HAS FLOWN.
Wedding Guests Gather, but
the Bride Cometh Not.
THE BREAKFAST UNTASTEO.
"<*agH," the Sport. Victimised by a
Woman Who Promised to Marry
Him—An I'nanlllnc Search.
Henry Robb.'ns. commonly called "Old
Skagit." Is in a peck of trouble. His in
tended br.de has gone, tne preliminary
wedding banquet remains untasted. there
is an old trunk with a tin pan in it at his
house, and sad to relate he and his pet
bulldog arc locked up at the city JaiL The
police say that "Old Skagit" has the de
lirium tremens, to say nothing of having
been focled by May Morris, a vivacious
woman of the town.
"Old Skagit" lives at Interbay. He is a
sp jrt and owns a regular fighting bulldog.
May Morris always said she was a New
Yorker and traveled in good society befOT#
coming West. Last Wednesday she in
formed Miss Graham, at whose house she
was staying, on Washington street, that
ahe had received a telegram from New
and that she intended returning borne.
She left the house, but did not take her
trunk or hamper. She called once or twice
during the remaining days of the week,
and on Saturday came In with a rush. She
ordered the servants around, called a hack
an.l finally went away with her trunk.
Before going she stepped Into the Mirror
nloon and said: "1 am going back to New
York, where I will be petted and loved."
Those In the saloon laughed in their
sleeves, and since then "pelted and loved"
have been by-words with the boys.
At this point "Old Ska fit" appears In
the story. He had become acquainted with
Miss Morris, and. in fact, fallen deeply In
love with her. According to his own state
ments the wedding waa to have taken place
next Tuesday, but as a preliminary there
was to have been a grand banquet at his
home at lnterbay yesterday afternoon at
3 o'clock. Cards were sent out. and to
have things up In style a cltv caterer was
secured to see that the banquet was up to
date. Everything was progresslnfi finely,
and. according to "Old Skagit's" story,
he took the trunk of his beloved "little
girl" out to his house Saturdav afternoon.
He could not bur to be away from her.
so be came in to town In the evening, and
was with her for a long time. Incidental- •
ly she asked him for K5 to get some trifles.
He gave her the money, of course. Now
he figures that in all he put up several
hundred dollars to fit her out in the latest
style. When he left her Saturday ntgfet
be had visions of bliss floating before his
eyes. He looked upon her as a young lady
from New York, who was to make his
home a perfect Eden. Last evening he
called her different names.
"Skagit" tried to sleep, but It was no
use. He got up early yesterday morning
and hurried down town to press those ruby
lips. Imagine his surprise when he found
that bis "deary" bad gone. His mind be
came seised with a horrible thought, and
straightway he ran with all his might to
Miss Graham's house, and rang the bell
until everybody in the house came out of
bed in afright. Miss Graham opened th«
door.
"Where Is Miss May?" demanded "Skag
it."
"I don't know." said Miss Graham, "she
left here last Wednesday and said she was
going to New York."
"Let me have her, woman!" yelled
"Skagit."
"I haven't got her," retorted Miss Gra
ham with warmth in her voice.
"If you don't release her at once I will
call a policeman," screeched "Skagit."
"Call in tho whole force," replied Miss
Graham, and then she slammed the door.
"Skagit" ran up to police headquarters
and told bis story. Then he ran up to the
private house where Detective Cudihee
rooms and pulle l him out of bed.
"I want you to go down to Miss Gra
ham's." he said, "and rescue my little girl
and place her In the hotel where she be
longs. She Is to be my bride. If they
don't Kive her up, teiar down the house."
"Skagit" rushed bark to the police sta
tion. and Informed the officers there that
If his Intended was not rescued he would
discharge the entire police force. Having
pronounced this ultimatum, he went sail
ing up the street, and soon appeared with
a spotted horse, which he drove up and
down the main streets as If his life de
pended upon getting somewhere. Finally
he cam« to the conclusion It was time to
go back to Interbay and away he wtnL
According to a reliable person. "Skagit"
cam.) Into the little community like a wild
min. The banquet was ready and some
of the guests on hand. It is said that the
spread cost him J3UO and that the display
of cut flowers was line. "Skagit" came
into the house like a wild man. and said
that he wanted ail the partitions taken
out of the house and everything covered
with canvas. The guests commenced to
soatter and "Skagit" came to the con
clusion he would 3ee what was in the
trunk. He got an axe and smashed it
open. Alas, there was nothing but a tin
pan and a few pieces of rubber pipe.
Crazed at being played for a "sucker." he
commenced to smash things up at a lively
rate, and pretty soon the telephones In
the place commenced to ring for police
headquarters.
"Send an officer, quick." was the mes
sage. " Skagit' Is breaking up the town."
Sergeant Willsrd and Detective Will
iams started for Interbay and OR the way
out sighted "Skagit" coming inio town
with his fighting bulldog. The officers fell
in behind and trailed him. When he
reached North Seattle an ordinary Jog
rushed out of a yard and jumped the bull
do*. * 41
"Take him." yelled "Skagit." Then'the
fur fl-w "Skaglfs" dog jfot hold of the
ordinary dog and shook h.m. The ordi
nary dog howled and out came a woman
to protect the ordinary dog.
"Don't let the bulldog kill my dog."
said the woman.
"Your dog commenced It." said "Skagit."*
"and my dog will tlx him."
Then the woman said something moro
and "Skagit" told her to get Into the
house or he would take a shot at her. Th»
Wimian lost no time in ge-ting Inside ard
In her fright put out the lights.

he never before had been fouled by a

It was learned last e*•'nine that Miss
Morris purchased the trunk from a Sec
ond avenue second-hand dealer, so U is
evident that her own trunk was taken to
ecime <*her place than 'Skagit's'' house.
"Skagit" told several stories about the
money he h%d put on the woman, but some
of them were purely imaginative. He told
one party that he had paid money to Miss
Graham to gre< Miss Morns' trunk out of
pawn. Miss Graham says that Miss Mor
ris did not owe her money and fhat she
knows nothing about the affairs of Miss
Morrt* or Mr. Rabbins.
Robbfns is the man who had John Pask
arrested for stealing two stuffed game
cock* from him and who recently sued
Pa&k tn the superior court for JI.TOO.
As near as can be learned Miss Morris
has gone to Portland.
AMUSEMENTS.
Morrison's Company In "Fl»u*t."
The above famous company will be seen
In a spectacular dramatic production of
"Faust" at the Seattle theater next Fri
day. The version of Goethe's work which
Is presented was made hy Bayle Bernard,
of London. The general arrang raent of
the scenes follows very closely that made
familiar by Sir Henry Irving, but it should
be said that there is no evidence of any at
tempt to copy the production of the En
glish manager. Marguerite is imprisoned,
charged with the murder of her mother,
and not with the killing of her child, and
indeed the fact that she ever had a child
Is ignored. This is done purposely, and the
reasons for its omission are both excellent
and commendable. The piece is staged
well, and the pictures are effective. Elec
tricity is used with good efTect in several
scenes. The duel with its Hashes of elec
tric light is a startling incident. The
apotheosis is also interesting, making a
fitting close to the weird and singular per
formance. The scene on the summit of the
Brocken is thrilling and impressive, as was
the c&se in the Irving production. It holds
the attention of the audience and its.close
made brilliant by a dazzling dlsp ay of tire
works is a novelty. A great many super
numeries are used and they are handled
so skillfully that they add to the natural
ness and effectiveness of the pictures. The
calcium lights are also cleverly placed and
utilized to the best advantage. Great care
has been used in selecting the company,
each member of which is peculiarly adapt
ed to the part for which he Is cast, thus
assuring a harmonious whole.
Mlm Fay Locate* a Mine.
One of the most remarkable demonstra
tions of the peculiar powers possessed by
Anna Eva Fay is the following account of
the successful outcome of her locating a
mine, previously unworked: The Denver
Times of January 30 last says:" Miss Anna
Eva Fay is going to locate a mine in the
Cripple Creek district. A fern days ago a
Cripple Creek operator suggested to the
fair Mahatma that her power as a seeress
ought to make her a fortune. He sug
gested that she pay a visit to the gold
fields and take a look down Into the
grounds herself. It Is further stated that
so much confidence has this operator in
Miss Fa>*s ability to locate gold, that he
will work the mln« and pay expenses,
giving her a half Interest."
As a sequel to the *t>ove. there appeared
In the Portland Orcgonian at April 11 the
following: "While in Colorado Springs
three months ago Anna Kva Fay van
asked if she could locate a mine and tell
the owners Just where to bore. She de
scribed minutely a certain spot upon which
to commence operations. Miss Fay thought
but little about this circumstance, until
last Saturday, when she received in St.
Paul 100,000 shares and samples of ore fair
ly bubbling over with gold. With the
above came a letter, saying that her In
structions had been followed and one of
tho richest mines in the world had been
discovered, and out of courtesy to Miss
Fay they had named it the Mahatma."
The certificates and ore will be placed
on exhibition In this city during Miss
Fay's engagement, which begins to-night
at the Seattle theater.
At the Third Avenue.
The Hosmer-Ross company closed their
engagement at the Third avenue theater
last evening and this evening Milton No
bles opens an engagement. He is support
ed by his wife, Dolly Nobles. and his own
specially selected company. The play is
"A Son of Thespis," a pastoral comedy
drama, in which Mr. Nobles plays the role
of the actor and Dolly Nobles the role of
h;s daughter. A tender love story is in
terwoven, and there are several pathetic
situations, like all of Mr. Nobles" play*.
"A Son of Thespis" Is rich In comedy
scenes, the humorous and pathfttie follow
ing each other in rapid succession.
Manager Kusssell armouries that he has
a surprise In store for the patrons who at
tend this evening's performance.
There will N- m. performance in the
Auditorium this week.
The (iibxifiiiui Pictures.
Expectation is running high as to the
presentation of the Gibsonian living pict
ures next Thursday evening at Ranke's
hail, Similar performances have been a
favorite kind of amateur amusement in
New York this winter, where they have
drawn crowded houses. The groupings
and ideas expressed by them are alto
gether novel and give scope for the most
elaborate settings and costumes. The
tableaux will be given only one night, and
from present indication* standing room
will be a: a premium. Hesides the pictures
there will be a fine musical programme,
so that the evening will have a double
guard against dullness.

the painstaking work of the company.

IT TOUCHES THEM ALL
Salaries to Be Reduced Right
Down the Line.
NO CHANCE FOR SINECURES NOW
i; Paid Employes to Snffrr the
Most, but Xo One to Ew«n*-A
Cut of From 5 to IO Per Cent.
If something unforeseen does not happen
at the meeting of the committee of the
city council on the salary reduction ques
tion this morning, a report will be sub
mitted to the council at to-night's sess.on
that will stir up the employes of the city
to a state bordering on frer.sy, for It will
affoct their sal-Ties, and in tee language
of one of the committee, "affect them
generally." It Is not meant by the word
g'-neral that the reduction In all the sala
ries is to be the same, for it is not. The
reduction will be graduated, probably from
& to 10 per cent., the well paid deputies
and clerks suffering the greatest and the
patrolmen and firemen the least, if at all.
The report will probably reoommend that
the cuts be only temporary, or until the
dull period Is over and the city ooce more
on a firm flnancial basts.
In preparing its report the committee
has taken into consideration the fact that
the civil service rules provide that city
employes shall hold office as long as they
llv« up to the requirements, and this being
the case, the committee believes that men
should receive a sum sufficient to live on
comfortably, and not be paid salaries thdt
will enable them to lay by a snug sum
each month. Of course this is only con
jecture, as no one outside the committee
has seen ;he report or heard the discus
sions which up to the present time have
been narmonloua. The commute* has la
bored hard on the question and (tone
thoroughly Into every detail, most of the
members having been tn a position to hire
men at one time or another and thus pride
themselves on their ability to judge the
value of labor. The report will no doubt
be voluminous, and Its reading will be
listened to wl:h great interest.
A prominent member of the committee,
speaking of the matter yesterday, said:
' One of the principal points on which the
committee has labored has been that if
any one had to be cut It should be those
who are earning more than enough to live
on comfortably and jneet all ordinary obli
gations. In other words. It is not the de
sire of the committee to keep men In office
■who can meet those obligations and be
able to save quite a sum besides. Another
reason for the cut is to tide over the city
and pay cash to Its employes until better
times come. The decision which has prac
tically been arrived at by the committee
has been only after a thorough under
standing by Individual investigation of the
duties and work performed by each official.
"The entire committee is well disposed
toward laboring men, and It will not
recommend anything that will work to
their disadvantage. The men the com
mittee Is after are those who do office
work and draw big salaries. We realize,
however, the important work to be per
formed by the city engineer In the city's
big undertaking on the Cedar river propo
-li.lon and will recommend that a good
salary be paid that official. The commit
tee will probably also recommend to the
mayor that he request the person he ap
points as clerk of the municipal court to
rebate to the county $25 a month out of
his salary; that Is, If It can be legally
done. Of course you understand this is
to be a voluntary rebate, as the salary of
the office Is tlxed by law. the same as the
Judge's. The high salaries paid to the
attachis of the county has been discussed
quite freely by the committee, and it is
hoped the commissioners will follow our
example and do something In that direc
tion.
"There Is one thing you can depend on.
and that Ls that the report, when It is
made, witt be a hot one."
A SILVEIMiOI.D DEBATE.
Advocates of Heform Ctom Swords In
the Fabian Society.
At the regular bi-weekly meeting of th©
Fabian Society held last night in the La
dies - Musical Club rooms. Holyoko build
ing. there was a debate on the question,
"Will the Free Coinage of Silver Benellt
Our People?" The affirmative was main
tained by John Wiley, who read a care
fully prepared and lengthy paper chock
full of statistics and sharp sayings. The
sixty-three people »ho listened to the de
bate seemed to relish the sayings better
thart the statistics, and warmly applauded
such sentences as these: "That lineal de
scendant of hi* Satanic Majesty, who has
for the last thirty years been boarding at
Washington City hotels instead of Hades
—John Sherman;" "Secretary Carlisle is
either a fool or a knave, with the chances
16 to 1 in favor of the latter."
The negative was championed by Lau
rence Oroniund. who argued against free
coinage with the government constituted
as It is now. though if socialism co::l I be
established he said he would be In favor
of free coinage. He accused Mr! Wiley of
not sticking to the subject, and In his re
ply Mr. Wiley returned the compliment.
Dr. Titus was also called to speak, but
declined, saying that the announcement of
his name as one of the principal debaters
was unauthorized by him, though he had
cons, nted to say few word*. He took
occasion to pay a high tribute to Mr
Oroniund as an economist. Mr. (Jron
lund from the chsir stated that he had un
derstood Dr. Titus to consent to speak.
The entire debate occupied neatly three
hours.
