The southern terminal of the road out
of Port Angeles Is not yet definitely set
tled, and may not be for nome time.
Whether the road will run to Olympta,
ninety miles, or to Junction City, twtnty
flve mlief, Is yet unknown. The pro
moters of the company, W. C. <.'usirur.sc,
of Boston, who I* president, and Mr At
kinson have simply guaranteed to the
people of Port Angeles and Victoria tra.o»
continental connections That is ail that
mas asked of them If they can give this
connection by building twenty-five miles
to Junction City they would naturally do
It In preference to building ninety mile*
to Olympia. The decision depend* upon
the action of the Port Townsend Southern
company. That road ha* been projected
to Olympia for month* and even for yearn.
Should it run there, as ha* tx'»-n intimated
Strongly during the past fear months, the
Port Angeles Eastern would find It neces
aary t» build merely to Junction City.
The route east would then be over tfce two
•mailer roads and the Nortnern Pacific.
On the other hand, should the Port
Townsend Southern not build to a connec
tion with the Northern Pacific at Olympia,
the Port Angeles Eastern, to me-1 It*
agreement with the people of Victoria.
Port Townsend and of the several other
gmaller towna who have alao offered sub
sidles. tnnat build there. Such la the situ
ation at thla time.
Bat this uncertainty does not hinder the
Work on th* line. There 1* a distance of
some twenty miles In the direction of
Junction City which will be constructed
Whether the fine ultimately ends there or
•1 Olympta And It is on this length that
Work Is now progressing, A party of en
gineers has been In the field for some
weeks and has run preliminary surveys f.»r
thla twenty miles. It has also located six
Bills* to Moss' canyon, or at least it will
tore done so by Friday night. The lav
laborers whom Mr. Atkinson will put to
Work will be employed on the land that
has alieady been located.
"Thera are about three miles of trestle
work o»»t * Port Angeles," said Mr. At
kinson la«t night, "and then come three
or four miles of grading along the shore of
the straits. Here these men will in- em
ployed building embankments and making
• aide cut. Ther* will be much crib work
ln*ths (Trad* along the shore, but we have
an abundance of rock within easy reach,
•o that we can make a crib which will
Withstand any storm of the straits. For
the present no bridge work will be com
tnencw). These Japanese will do grading.
I have never before had experience with
Japanese laborers, and du not kt\ow how
they will get along. Hut It Is the only
kind of labor that I can find, I have cor
responded with m«ny labor bureaus and
agsnts to get Americans, but they cannot
he secured."
From the store the road will go up Moss
canyon to reach th« height of the ground
above th« water. There will la- a horse
ahoe loop, but an »-a>*v grille, in fact. Mr.
Atkinson said that the heaviest grade is
only IS P*r cent and the greatest curve is
less than 8 dagree*. The agreement now
being negotiated with the people of Vic
toria requires a transport steamer and a
t* st (wssetiger steamer
"I have not s,-en uny steamers for sale
on th# Coast that answer our purpose "
Continued Mr Atkinson. "so I shall con

Corpotatlon Counsel Humphrey does not
reli*h the respor.sililllty laid at hi.* door aa
to t Ive con template-.! change In Cedar river
water plans. He has taken the position all
along that the voice of the people, as ex
pressed at the ballot box, was his only
guide. He said yesterday:
"It Is well known that at the time the
vota was belr.g taken in the city council
by which the new ordinance In relation to
the Cedar river water system was adopted,
when the roli call reached Dr. Crlchton, he
arose and explained his vote, saying that
he voted for the .ordinance, although he
regretted that th« plan of the work In re
lation to the amount of water had been
changed. 1 then askej to make a state
ment to the council and the roll call was
suspended to permit me to do so. 1 then
informed them that the plan of the work
liad not been changed In any manner what
ever and never would be with my consent.
No one was more surprised than I to find
the change had l>e«;n made. 1 had no
knowledge of that fact until two days ago,
when the city engineer Informed me that
part of the plan, as original}' adopted by
the people, had been left out of the prev
ent system, and was not Included in tha
plans and specifications on file with th- sec
retary of the board of public works and
submitted to Intending bidders.
"I immediately informed Iwm that the
specification* would have to be changed to
conform to the original plans and that the
board would have to r« advertise for bids.
"I am not called upon to jvass u(ion the
wisdom of the original plan* That ques
tion ha* long since been decided by one
tribunal having the authority. It was
adopted by the people and they ul nc can
change it. The system must be con
struct- d according t.i their plans, or not at
all. Whether It will be a waste of the peo
pie's money 1 do nut know. If it L*. th<- peo
plw alone are responsible and n > officer of
the city, whatever he may thihk, h:»s any
right to change it If this change from the
original plan* had riot been d < cv« r. .1 th'
whole work would have be. n Indefinitely <l<
la.vd atsd any contract entered into for its
construction would have been illegal.
"I am b>und to presume that the people
know what th>y want and 1 intend to do
all possible to assist them to get it."

Ten years ago this month a big gang of
men with teams and scrapers was set to
work on the top of the l%rge promontory
known as Denny hill to prepare
the way for the foundations for
what was planned to be one of
the finest hotels in the West. With
in six weeks from today the building,
which bears the honored name of the pio
neer iK-nny, founder of Seattle, will be
completed on the original plans and ready
for occupancy.
For nearly seven years the huge pile
has remained unfinished and untenanted,
save by a solitary watchman. Unknown,
probably, to the majority of people in Se
attle. work was resumed on the structure
a year ago last January and has been pro
gressing rapidly ever sinoe. At one time
there were upward of seventy-five men at
work on the and in grading the
grounds. A large force will be employed
during the last weeks and the structure
will be finished as quickly as practicable.
The Denny hotel enterprise was the
cherished project of a group of the best
men that Seattle has produced. It was in
18>8 that the first step toward the organ
ization of a stock company to raise money
for the erection of the hotel were taken.
This was during the beginning of the
great rush of immigrants to Washington
that ended in IS9I and which left the cities
of the state populous and the country
sparsely settled. The scheme encountered
the same adverse fate that has befallen
many a similar venture. Funds ran low,
financial complications set in and work
was stopped, to the bitter disappointment
of those who had inaugurated it, as well
as to the people of the city.
Not varying a whit from the original
plans, except to better them, the present
owners of the building began the task of
finishing It and their work will be ended
within the next few weeks.
Situated on a commanding eminence,
tho Denny hotel faces Third avenue, the
main entrance being up a high terrace
where the avenue would cross it if pro
jected. Crossing the spacious balcony,
the visitor enters the main lobby on the
first floor. In this part of the building a
large force of carpenters and cabinet
makers is today busily engaged In putting
on the handsome hard maple finish which
will make the large and well-arranged
lobby one of the very handsomest of Its
kind in the country. The lobby Is 30x70
feet In area. Its size being further aug
mented by the wide approaches and corri
dors frcm the west and east entrances to
the building.
FlnlNhlßfcs Are Superb.
One is Immediately impressed with fKi
superb nature of the finishing of the lobby
and corridors, as well as of the parlors and
ladles' reading room, which are adjacent
to the lobby. The material used Is hard
maple, much of it, particularly the large
l*anr-l doors, being selected curly maple.
It Is 1 finlshhd with a polish similar to that
on piano cases. The general design of the
casements of t!»e doors and of the highly
ornate and beautiful columns and mantels
hs In the style of the Renaissance, with
here and there a trace of the Roman.
Undoubtedly the most elegant piece of
art work in the building is the pana
stairway- from the main lobby to the sec
ond floor and dining: room, with the huge
mantel and fireplace in the rectangular
atea formed by the two sides of the stair
case and the office. The best work of the
architect in the architectural design of
the interior Is exemplified In the substan
tial newel post at the foot of the wide
stairs. This is of hard maple, hand
carved as to its top. and most substantial
ly put together. It is almost. If not quite,
seven feet tall and is shown in the ac
companying cut.
Next in point of beauty of design are
the mantels of the large dining room and
the finishing of the office, which is direct
ly off the lobby. The columns support
ing the lobby ceiling and in the dining
room are simple, but very handsome.
They are all hand carved, the style of the
Renaissance being varied here and there
by designs in the classic or Roman
school. The two large fireplaces and
elegantly finished mantels of the dining
room are. It is said, not surpassed on the
Pacific coast for beauty.
There are 240 guest chambers In the
building. Counting parlors, the rooms for
the domestics ind private dining rooms,
there are altogether 350 apartments in the
building.
Traversing ?he grand stairway one
emerges on the balcony of the second
floor. The city is spread out like a mag
nificent panorama, the shipping and
Sound showing in the foreground to the
right and the busy, traffic-lined streets
directly in front. To the left every part
of the residence district of the first hill
is in sight and from the east piazxa there
is a magnificent view of the Renton hill
district, Union and the Cascades
and Selkirks In the distance.
A Commanding Location.
An Idea of the commanding location of
the new hotel may" he gained from the
fact that the balustrade of the second
floor balcony is on a level with the top
of the spire of Plymouth church.
With the exception of the lobby, the
dining room and parlors on the main floor,
the finishing wood of the interior la Cal
ifornia redwood and Eastern white pine.
The dining room is 50x60 feet, with two
private dining rooms, one 30x60 and an
other 24x30. Off the main dining room
there is a children's dining room 24x30.
There are five private parlors on the sec
ond and five on the third floor. In the
basement provision is made for a large
steam heating plant, electrical plant,
laundry, baggage room and bar room and
billiard parlors.
The Denny Hotel Company, which pro
jected the enterprise, was formed in ISBB.
Its main promoters were Judge Thomas
Burke, J. D. Lowman. Thomas Ewing,
Judge J. P. Hoyt. Judge H. G. Struve and
W. E. Bailey. A. A. Denny was presi
dent. Mr. Lowman secretary and Mr.
Bailey treasurer. The contract was let
to P. 9. Potvln in July. 18X9. A year ago
the property was purchased at foreclos
ure sale by the present owners, who are:
The estate of A. A. Denr.y, Dexter Hor
ton A Co., bankers, and Huttig Bros.
Manufacturing Company, of Muscatine,
la.
The plans of the hotel were drawn by
A. B. Jennings and A. Wickersham. Mr.
Wickersham has charge of the work of
construction at the hotel. N. O. Soder
quist Is foreman. The owners of the
building will have expended upwards of
$50,000 on the Work now In progress when
it is finished.
