Tuesday, Dec. 11. 1877. IMPORTANT ARRR9T. About the 25th of April, 1876, two brothers named Willougbby Lewi* and Sevier Lewis, met at the house of their father, who resides about four miles from Coquille City, Coos county, Oregon. The latter had a daughter, (unmarried) who bad been discovered to be in a coodition of impending maternity. He mentioned the case to his father and brothers, the latter of whom charged him with being the author of his own daughter's rnm. This so exasperated Sevier Lewis that he shot bis brother dead before bis father's face, and then fled from the scene of bis crime with the stain of sin on his brow and the corse of Cain on his soul. Rewards were offered and three parties went out in quest of the cnlnrit, but be eluded their vigilance and has not since been heard from till last Sunday night at a late hour. In the meantime, his crimes had been pretty much forgotten by the Coos county people, and he supposed him self safe. Sunday night however, a man named Clay Perkins, from Eu gene City, was sitting in the ofticw-room of the Atnerica i Exchange Hotel in this city, talking with Haley, one of the proprietors. Just then a man known as George W. Harmon entered, and after conversing some with parties who were present, attracted tbe atten tion of Perkins, who proposed to Haley that they should follow bim up. Tbey tracked him to the Vanity Fair beer hall, whence tbey traced him to the Oriental Hotel, his place of lodging. One of them kept watch of the house while tbe other went over and woke up Sheriff Wyckoff. When tbe three en tered Harmon's room, he was lying in bed, partially stupified from the effects of drink aud having a long knife with him. This Haley snatched and threw into tbe middle of the room on tbe floor. Wyckoff then made bim get up and dress himself and come to jail. He denies all identity with Sevier Lewis, but it is impossible for Perkins to be mistaken. Our reporter, who lived over three years at Coos Bay, does not remember having met Lewis and would not try to swear to bis identity. But there are two men at LaConner—Dr. Mackey and N E. Goodell—who, we think, oould tell whether he is the man or not. In the meantime, Glenn Aiken, tbe Sheriff of Qoos county, has been tel egraphed and answers that be will be along in a day or two. So if Harmon is the man's real name, he will not have long to wait before he can be set at liberty. THEDRAINAOK QUESTION.— Probably there is no city on tbe coast that would be as healthy as Seattle if proper sani tary regulations were observed. It has such a slope towards the water as to guarantee the carrying off of all the garbage and offensive matter if proper sized sewers were built in the streets; but in a "penny wise and fool ish" policy, small box drains have been laid down in our streets and car ried barely to high water mark on the beach, whereas they should run out some distanoe beyond high water mark, thus enabling the suction of a large body of tide water to flush the sewers. At present, in the houses along Com mercial aud Front streets, when there is a large flood tide the air is so offensive as to jeopardise health and create diph theria. All this might have been pre vented by making tbe sewer boxes four feet square and running them out be yond low water mark, in tbe first place. Another great nuisance here is the sprinkling of sawdust ou the streets. It is a fruitful cause of disease and should be abolished at once. Seattle has as many nntural advantages for health as any city on the toast, if prop • r sanitary regulations were enforced A NEW WORK.— Heretofore when the condensers on our low-pressure steamers have got out of order, the brass tubes have been taken out and sent to San Francisco to be re-coatcd with tin. This is to prevent tbe gener ation ot "galvanic acid." which cats up boiler iron at if it were so much ebeesc. Waddell A Miles are now en gaged iu re-coating the condenser tubes of the tug Tacotna, which have lieen in use about sixteen months, aud should have been worked over at least two months ago. John B. Williamson, Btq., who is a good judge of suoh mat ters, pronounces the work done by Waddell & Miles as being superior te any he has seen executed on this coast. There arc about nine hundred of these tubes to be ooated in all for tbe Taoo ma. It will admit of her resuming her work at least fifteen days earlier than if the work had been sent to San Fran cisco, to say nothing of saving freight both ways on tbe tubes. Ttu ISABEL —This steamship. which WM running on the Pbrt Town •*od Mid Victoria route for UlO put three months during the overhuling of the North Pacific, bus been laid up it Taopnn where her engines end boilers will be thoroughly repaired by David Kmedy, her engineer. If Capt. Starr . . ooatoect between Kanaitno andf YMeaaa, aha will be put <>a that to Fort Wrangle. We notice that Del- Spta Jacobs has a bill to give her an merican register. whiah is, we believe, me third attempt he has made to pro oara legislation of this kind. We have ■at the alighted idea that it will DM either Hooee of Congress. MARINE TKLBOBAMS.—Tbe bark Dublin, from Sea beck for San Fran eisoo, was the only departure from Pu- Kt Sound waters yseterday. Barks dal Wave, Kevere and Colusa, arrived from San Francisco yeeterday; the frmcr at Port Ifodisop, *°d the latter two at Port Townsend. There are but shfne vessels in tbe port of Seattle, at priSMit— ship Yoeemite and barken tine Portland and Constitution. Lum bef will begin to brighten up about tiie Ist of February, and then we tball be gin to see a great increase of tbe ton nage in Sound waters. EP~ Yesterday the appointment of H. Mitchell to a Uni vanity Schol •"kip by Ger. Ferry, with the broad ••iof the Territory attached, « u re •"▼•d by him for tiling with the Re- A NEEDED ENTER PRISE.—We HARE often been surprised, that with the Urge amount of butchering done in Seattle, nobody baa started an establishment for rendering up tallow by steam. It is a very profitable business when carried on upon a large scale, and there is al ways good ssle for the article, if prop erly pot np. It require* a large vat in to which the tallow and bones are thrown and the steam let on in jets from a boiler near by. Tha cheapness of coal for steam fori at this place, would be one inducement in its favor. We herewith append a list of the slaughtering firms in Seattle, with the average number of cattle and sheep slaughtered per week by them: Cattle. Sheep. A. W. Malson 15 35 Foes & Borst •***..lß 40 L. Diller 12 22 Phelps & Wadleigh 22 Wm. Baunton 2l Totals 70 121 Allowing eighty pounds of tallow for each bead of beef cattle, and fifteen for each sheep, we have a weekly total of 7.415 pounds of crude tallow, or 29,660 pounds per month, to be worked up. This would find ready (■ale for tbe use of steamboats, mills, and foundries, besides affording some for export on the lumber vessels plying to South America, where it would Cml ready calc in all those ports. It would also lay the foundation for a candle faotory at this pljce, which would prove remunerative whenever a suffi cient amount of capital was put into the business to furnish retailers with a steady supply of homo made candles. It would also double the soap business, which is already carried on here to a considerable extent. We arc now shipping tallow to San Francisco and paying freight Imck on our candles. This shows bow money might l>e kept in tbe country if a proper effort were made. To BE SHOT.—We mentioned several months ago that William Baxter, a brother of Sutcliffe Baxter, Esq,, of this city, had been shot by a despe rado named Wallace Wilkerson, near Provo City, Utah He was put in jail, but by tbe interference of some friends and the passive aid of a sleeping jailor, effected his escape. ll* was subsequently caught and brought back for trial, which resulted in his conviction of mur der on the 15th of November. As the statutes of Utah allow tbe defendant in murder cases to choee whether they will be banged or shot, Wilkerson has ehosen tbe latter and will be executed by that process ou Friday of this week, the 14th inst. William Baxter was a man highly respected by all who knew him. MORE SCHOLARS.*— We heard yester day of two more appointments to the University under the Free Scholarship Act. One of these was Master Howard Cook, of Whidby Island, by Hon E. B. Ebey, of Island county; the other is Miss Ella Dunfield, of this city, by Hon. Joseph Foster. This makes eleven appointments, so far, nine of which are from about tbe Souud and two from Pacific county. We have at yet learned nothing from the members from Clarke and Cowlitz counties, who have five appointments among theia. COMMENDED.—The Maine papers speak highly of the spars and deck plank received from Pugct Sound by the W. H. Besse, which loaded at the Olympia (Westside) wharf last summer. If the capitalists of tbe Pine Tree State would establish their shipyards here, where timber is cheaper and better than tbey eau ever again hope to have it in Maine, they would do much to ward restoring to tbe American flag its lost supremacy of the sea. COUNTY COMMITTEES.—Both the Bcpublicau and Democratic committees of King county have been called to meet on the 32d inst., to consider the manner of nominating delegates to the Consti tional Convention. HOME J'IEWS. —Mr. R. C. Graves is the agent in this city tor Huntington's splendid stereoscopic views of Wash ington Territory scenery. Though tbe winter shut down on the artist before he had oompleted his tour of tbe Sound, bis assortment embraces several dozen views, including much of the most at tractive and striking scenery in tbe Ter ritory west of the mountains. To those who desire a tasty and beautiful pres ent to scod to their friends abroad these home views arc just the thing. To dwellers in the East they would be both novel and interesting.
