more than SO per cent, of the total depoa- [
The Increase In the deposit? ha? not j
been desultory or occasional, but steady
and continuous during the two year*
Kaeh succeeding statement of the banks
has shown a gain in the aggregate over
| the total shown by the preceding etate
| ment. and this has been true of almost
every individual bank as well. The R£-
! gregste deposits In May, I*9?. were SM4«.-
! fe'X a gam of over those for
October, 2m. In May, liW, they reached
a total of JR.s*s.l2l.ol. an increase of
nearly tfcree and three-quarter millions In
one year, and in the four months ending
with September they increased nearly a
million dollars more.
The same story of continuous improve
ment is told bv the clearing house reports.
The Seattle clearings, as shown by the j
| Commercial and Financial Chronicle, of I
New York, increased from 528.137,'.«5S for j
! ISS6 to $36,€4.".22S for 1597, an increase for
| the year of 1T,5555,163. or 2* per cent. The
growth of the clearings for the present
year has been much more marked. For
I the eleven months of 1?&7 endin* Novem
ber 30 the clearings were 530.364155. For
the corresponding period of this year
.; they amount to an increase of
131.456,237, or more than 100 per cent.
This rate of increase far exceeds that
j of any other city in the United State*, j
j The only other that comes within a re- j
! spectable distance of it is Fargo, with an j
increase of 72 per cent., and its totals are j
so much less than those of Seattle as to
make its clearings much less noticeable.

Htntorr Of the XeTfßirßt.
The plan e f unit in* m i«*e a number
of mills in a co-operative movement to
close down during the midwinter >»■ J -nn
originated a year ago with Victor H. Bevk
man. editor of the Pacific lumber Trade
Journal of this city. Mr Beeaman. who is
one of the best ported men in the courtiry
on industrial matters, hai observed with
regret the terrtble glut in tne shmg.e mar
ket the preceding spring and the *a»nst u-t
stagnation in traie and the ruinously 1 w
prices that brought disaster to many mi .a
He set about analysing the conditions and
tracing out the causes. lii a series of
strong articles he demonstrated the re
sult *w due chiefly to climatic condition*,
followed up and tsken ««v»ntage of In
shrewd speculators in the Eastern states*.
In a nutshell, the situation was tts fol
lows: The market for Washington shin
gles is almost exclusively in the Hast and
is reached by rail shipment over t ne three
traiwcontinentai line-* tnat diverge from
Seattle. While the state as an t iiormuos
cargo trade in lumier. bom forOgn and
coastwise, its cargo shipments of saing>-s
are inconsiderable. Tne heaviest of tiH-»-
go to Hawaii, and the vast preponderance
of rail shipments over those oy w.ter will
be apparen: by glancing at ttn-.-.t
the shingles shipped to Hawaii this year
amount to only 25.0u0.0w piec«-while those
shipped East by rail amount to 2.551
wU) pieces, or more than 10© times a? much.
Now in the Eastern starts tne midwinter
season, with its heavy snows and intense
cold, puts an end to all work on the out
side of buildings. Roofin* •..» out of tin:
question and the sale •>{ shing'. s stopped.
Meanwhile the mild and temperate winter
of Western Washington enables the m'lls
to run at full capacity. So they had been
running, and piling up shingles until the
market was overstocked and the bottom
dropped out of prices. Then the specula
tors, the shrewd middle men, stepped in
and bought shingles for a m«r» song.
WR>n the spring build s ng season opened i:s
the East and the shingle market ought to
have resumed its normal condition, the
manufacturers were confronted by this
vast stock which their own Improvidence
had thrown Into the hands of the specu
lators. Thus matters went on from year
to year, and the vast an* cnoice output
of shingles in this state was being sacri
ficed. The mills were foiced to sell shin
gles at less than the cost of production.
Mill* in the Movement.
Having pointed out the evil, Mr. Be.'k
man promptly suggested a remedy, viz, t:ie
closing down of trie mills. He sent out
letters asking co-operation, an 1 in re
sponse the following miiis agreed to join
in the movement:

These mills represented fully SO per e< nr.
of the .shingle capacity o» i.-k- state. Many
of them held down through the months

is the plan under which the mi;ls ure now
closing down. Far from being an evidence
of gloom or death «>r hard times. it is
proof that the mill men have the situation
well in hand, and that they, and-not the
speeulators, will he in the saddle when the

had a clog or two. but that
doesn't matter—for the creation
in the vicinity of Seattle of a
military reservation which may become
as notable as the reservation at Fort
Kiley, Kan.
At Fort Riley the government expended
over 12.000.0(10 in improvements.
Magnolia Bluff, a lofty bit of land over
looking 1 Puget Sound, is the site chosen
for the Seattle reservation. It has been
duly acquired by the government, and
work has begun upon it. but there have
been things in the way of uninterrupted
progress, and these things are not yet
done away with.
There are almost a thousand acres in
the proposed camp, which make it nearly
as large as the famous military reserva
tion at San Francisco kn*wn as the Pre
sidio. At the instance of the government
:he people of Seattle expended a good
batch of their own money and bo ugh t the
thousand acres as a gift to the govern
ment. They wanted a military camp per
manently located at the city and were
willing to pay for it.
It was a case of mutual desire between
the government and the city an<i the gov
ernment proceeded at once to the laying
out of about SIOO,OOO upon the land which
had been donated. The building of bar
racks w ;is inaugurated, roads were open
ed, timber and brush land was cleared.
Seattle was gratified with the new busi
ness thus opened, and the I'nited States,
;ts usual, was uncomplaining. A con
structing quartermaster's department was
established in Seattle, In charge of Capt.
W. Robinson, Jr., who was associated
with many of the great Improvements
made at Fort Riley. The city Chamber
of Commerce continued its interest in the
proposition, and the city council lived up
to its contract to supply the reservation
with water.
But presently there came a hitch. The
wet weather began. Roads became mud
dy. Contractors lost time in getting back
and forth to tho reservation with their
ioa is of lumber, stone and other building
material. Capt. Robinson found himself
compelled to spend the major portion of
his day in tho ride'between the city and
tho bluff. And naturally enough a protest
The government asked the city to put
the roads to the reservation in proper
shape. The city was blocked with other
demands upon its finances and couldn't
hurry the response to tho government's
request. The Chamber of Commerce took
hold of the matter and passed resolutions
setting forth the obligations of the city
to the reservation. Still the ciy did noth
ing:. Personal were made, press
editorials were printed, all possible moral
suasion was used upon the city council.
But without apparent result.
About a week ago Capt. Robinson de
clared that he was becoming impatient
and disgusted. The apathy of the city
authorities provoked corresponding apathy
at Washington, and the captain was left
without material by which to urge upon
the government the prior calls of this
reservation upon the fun d* and attention
of the War department. The situation be
gan to look blue.
in nts will he still larger. Lumbermen
agree that :he situation was never morrt
favorable for the lumber Interests of Pu
get sound and of the *tate. The prospects
for next season ar. encouraging for the
cargo trade, beta foreign and coastwise,
and there s a growing demand for Wash
ington lumber and Washington shingles in
the Eastern states.
