Tfcwt of Rise Villa Whltsey White,
the Seag Interpreter.
The handsome residence of Frsnk R.
Van Tuyl on Seventeenth avenue was the
scene of a most unique entertainment last
night, given for the benefit of snd under
the auspices of the Ladies' Musical Club
of this city.
The event marked the first appearance
In Seattle of Miss Villa Whitney White,
who enjoys the unusual distinction of be
ing a "soot Interpreter," a title that has
00me to be well understood In the best
social and musical circles of the East, but
little known In the far West. The style of
entertainment that Miss White has ao
charmingly introduced to Seattle society
conshns of a rendition of German folk
songs from the fifteenth century to the
present time, which songs have been set
to an accompaniment that Dr. Helnrich
Reiman, of Berlin, has arranged. With
the songs is an explanation which Is sec
ond only to the interest of the songs them
selves, which Miss White renders In a
beautiful mezzo-soprano voice.
Her audience last night was a large and
particularly fashionable one. The rooms
had been cleared of furniture and heated
with camp chairs. Previous to Miss
White's arrival Informal conversation was
indulged in and the Interest that the new
form of socla} diversion inspired ltd to Its
discussion by those who had partaken of
it in the East. About *:U Miss White, and
her accompanist. Alias Dillingham, ap
peared and were received with a clapping'
of hands. She Is a handsome woman and
her address was particularly easy and
graceful. She gave a delightful little talk,
introducing her subject as one with which
sha enjoys an entire familiarity. Si»e
traced the development of soig, and par
ticularly German folk-song, from the
Gregorian chants through the years
through which music was monopolized by
the church, until the laity w«s permitted
its liberty In vocal responses, in the tenth
century. In the twelfth century poetry
developed, and following that the zninne
singers, who were not, as has been popu
larly believed, the composers of the folk
sungs. Those songs W€»re the evolution of
the melody that lived on the lips of the
people. The people were the composers of
the folk song*. The meister singers were
those whose mission It was to bring music
into all of the homes.
Miss White taik'd in a conversational
style, addressing her hearers with just a
suggestion of the accent that follows her
long residence abroad. She has studied
under Krau Joachln. one of the distin
guished teachers of music in Europe, wife
of the famous violinist. There wus little
that was technical, sufficient explanation
b« ing incorporated, however, to satisfy
those who listened analytically to her de
lightful discourse. Her programme was
the same as has !*■«■!» rendered before tho
Contemporary Club, of Philadelphia, and
other well known organizations in the

The Barnard Investigation got fairly
under way last night, but not without a
deal of preliminary akirmishing. so th»t
although the board of education met
promptly at 7;56 o'clock It was long p**t
10 before Secretary Guernsey was sworn
aa the first witneaa for the petitioner.
A large crowd was present, made up
chiefly of teachers. All the member* of
the board took seats on one side of the
table, at which they usually s:t, so that
the attorneys and the witness chair w -re
faring them acrosa the table Thus
ranged in a line, with President Wells at
the head, the members of the board pre
sented a very judicial appearance, and
one of the attorneya quite natural?y used
the expression: "May it please the court."
Frank A. Steele, as counsel for Super
intendent Barnard, after reminding the
members of the board of the grave natuw
of the case and the responslbilitv re«ti >?
upon them. ask*d that the attiti»de In
which Prosecuting Attorney M Elroy
stood toward the case be more definitely
determined After some discussion it was
decided that be stood in the relation of
an Investigator, having the conduct of the
Investigation before the board. This point
settled, Mr. Steele himself to
what he regarded as a grave defect In
the charges which alleged merely neglect
of official duty at some time during -.he
quadrennium from !%♦ to 1897. He ask*d
that this chir** be either stricken out or
made more definite and certain.
Mr. Meßlroy offers! as sn amendment
to the charge the following addition to
paragraph 4: "And that said F. J. Bar
nard during said years has not (riven his
attention to the specific school work in said
district, in this, to wit: That he has failed
and neglected for long periods of t me to
visit the schools In the buildings
of said district and ascertain the work
ing of the schools, and that he has not
given his time and attention toward the
advancement of the educational
of said district durinsr said years" Not
withstanding Mr. Steele's contention that
the amendment did not remove the vague
ness of the original charge, the board
adopted the amendment. Van Houten of
fered an amendment that paragraph 4 he
strirken from the charge?. Brewer vot-->d
with him, but r>amb, Weils and Ohilberg
outnumbered them, and on Tomb's mo
tion it was ordered to proceed with the
Then Mr. Steele raised a new diffi ulty
and made a long argument in favor of
striking out al! the allegations relating to
IW, in which, as he said. Barnard is
charged with violating a rule of the board
not adopted until 1894. The. board refused
to see the matter In this light. Steele
then moved to strike out from paragraphs
2. 3 and 4 every allegation relating to ary
time prior to ISS7, contending that the con
tract made for the present year between
Barnard nn<l the board constituted a dis
tinct relationship which could not be af
fected by any breach of contract prior to
that time. Again the board was about to
begin ;he Investigation, when Steele Inter
posed with a sobnan charge to the mem
bers of the board that if any one of them
felt that he entertained a prejudice which
would forbid his rendering a fair and im
partial verdict on the charges, he should
withdraw from the board during the In
v ticutfon. M- Elroy expressed unbound
ed astonishment at Steele's contention,
and "roasted" him for Insinuating that
any mem Her of the board would not ren
d< r a fair verdict- Then Steele sprang the
sensation of the evening by off- ring to
challenge President Wells as entertaining
persona) animosity, bias and prejudi ■■*>»
toward Barnard, as being one of the ehW
Instigator* of the present charges, as hav
ing said to one of the other members of
the board that he would remove Barnard,
and other similar expressions. The board
Ignored the challenge and again ordered
the Investigation to pro. - ted by the same
vote as before.
The first and only witn ss examined v. ns
Secretary Guernsey, who was questioned
by both Mr. McKlroy and Mr. Steele as to
the Journal of the b >ard and the r« gisrer
rf warrmts, showing the various «Ualir.<*
and jconmunic.atfons between Mr. Barnard
rnd the board during the ytars covered by

A Colorado party led by John H. Mac
k"nz!e and James Casey, of Colorado
Springs. CoL. has been in the city i »nce
ia«t October preparing for an expedition
to the Yukon river. Contracts have bten
let for the construction of the machinery
and bc.lers of two light-draft river steam
ers and the hull of one ateamer. A Lt»
ton saaiing vessel has been chartered to
take the boats and the men with their
outflta to the mouth of the Yukon, and
from there they will proceed up the river,
prospecting the side streams for plucer
or quarts locations.
The venture Is backed by W. 8. Strat
um the m.l.lonaire owner of the Inde
pendence mine of Cripple creek, and other
well known Colorado capitalists. Mac
kenzie will go as one of the heads of the
expedition. Kor many years he has been
the personal representative of W. S. Strat
ton, and to go on this trip to Aiaska he
has r s.gned a position as manager of the
Portland mine, where be drew 110,000 a
year James Casey has been mining in
the state of Colorado for the last twenty
years and is the discoverer of several
valuable properties. These two will be
accompanied by thirty prospectors, se
lected irom the btst men In tnat line of
busir.es* now In Colorado.
When Mackenzie and Casey first came
here they engaged the services of Frtd
C. Bell, the engineer, to draw up plans
and specifications for two steamers for
the Yukon. He was directed to design
what his experience dictated as the most
practical craft for prospecting in the
shallow tributaries of the Yukon.
The boats will be of steel, not only the
hulls, but also, so far as practicable, the
machinery. They will be built with the
particular Idea of combining strength
with the lightest possible draft. The di
mensions over ail are as follows: Length,
lw feet; beam, ITVa feet; depth, 3 feet. The
contract for the engines was given to
the Washington Iron Works, and their
work is now haif completed. The boilers
are being made by the Sumner • Iron
Works, of Everett. The hull of one of the
steamers will be built by Percy Copp, of
this city, under the direct supervision of
Engineer Bill. In order to carry out his
part of the contract Copp has taken a
empty building near Hall's wharf.
In North Seattle, and there the bull will
be constructed.
The sailing vessel chartered will ar
rive in S-attle between April 20 and May
1 from San Francisco. On her broad
decks will be loaded the finished hulls of
the- steamers; supplies fftr thirty men for
two years ard a halt; small boats for
prospecting narrow, shallow streams; hy
draulic pumps; a sawmill and outfits. She
will sail about May 15 and will arrive at
the mouth of the Yukon early In June.
The engines will there be put in the hulls,
and cabins will be built on the decks.
When all is in readiness the expedition
will start up the Yukon. One of the
steamers will go up the Tanana river and
the other will prospect In the Stewart.
Two month? previous to the sailing of
the main party for the mouth of the
Yukon a numler of prospectors, headed
by James Casey, will cross over the Chil
koot pass and will go down the Y'ukon,
ga*herirg information that will be of
value to the expedition. At some point
on the river they will meet the steamers,
and the two will join forces. An assayist
and a civil engineer will be with the com
pany. It Is understood that the party la
going north with no more Information at
the command of its members, as regards
location*, than any other prospecting out
fit would have. They will have one great
advantage; all are practical mining men
with years' of experience, and th»-y will
not be liable to pass any good indica
tions. They are not going for placers
alone, but will look for quartz leads as
well. They will depend on the country
f .r noth ng more than timber, water and
g.ild. Everything else will be furnished.
The river steamers will be equipped
wiili powerful steam pumps and hydraulic
mininjr plants v.iil be operated from tha
decks by means of a hose. Three steam
launches will be built for tenders.

To the Editor: As I am just down from
Alaska. I take the privilege c! informing
the public, for their own good, that a great
number of them are being misled by try
ing to go in this time of year, having to
encounter much more stormy weather. As
the snow is not yet packed, a person cross
ing the pass th:s time of vr-ar and getting
caught in a storm, the changes are. wilt
lose his life. Now, this is not seemingly
imagination on my part, but it is in reaiity
only too true. Now stop and consider.
Wait till some time in February; the snow
will be packed# the worst storms will be
over, and the weather will be settled down
to a still cold, which will be much
easier than storms to travel in. A person
starting by the first of March will beat
many in that are now well on their way;
for, nine chances out of ten, they will get
caught in storms and be delayed a great
portion of the time. People rush into th s
thing wtthout giving it proper study; con
sequently many who start wl.l return worse
than they ever were. And before closing
this 1 wLI submit that it is the place for a
laboring man, but he should use a gnat
deal of caution and study. I remain yours
truly, FHLD NIGH.
