The City Dock Since the recout additions to the City Dock, the business of that institu tion is increasing rapidly with every reason to hope that the future revenues will more than justify the outlay. Duriug the month of August, four boats made a total of seren landings at the dock; bringing 79 tons of coal and 123 tons of merchandise; and takiug 10 tous of merchandise. The wharfage, dockage and profit on coal amounted I to $173.25. The expense, for longshor ing $10, salary of wharfinger, 26 days at $3, $78.00. Total expense 88S.00. Duriug the monUi of Septeml>er, ten boats made a total of eighteen laudings j leaving 235 1-5 tons of merchandise and taking 25 tons. The receipts for wharf age and dockage ? no coal sold ? were j $135.75. Expenses, longshoiing $12.25; salary of wharfinger 28|? days, $85.50. Total expenses $97.75. Net returns for two months, $173.25. The steamship Northland lutided 75 tons of Ladysmith coal at the dock j Saturday night. 500 tous more of this splendid coal has been ordered and ; should arrive within the week. The plau of the new bunkers ? dumping the coal through large openings in the roof without the intervention of hoppers ! and cars? works fine, aud saves ex- 1 1 j pense. TREADWELL TOPICS The Treadwell Club, last night, pre sented a brilliant scene, when the Fouudrymeu entertaiued at their Fifth Annual Ball. The ball room was beau - j tifully decorated in the Foundry colors ' blue and gold. On the stage in large lettors, also of blue and gold, hang the word "Foundry," which was a guaran- i tee of general hospitality. Wasterlain's j four-piece orche'stra gave good music, and the floor, which was in perfect con dition, wa9 crowded with merry danc ers till au early hour this morning. Many pretty costumes were noticed among. the ladies. At midnight dainty refreshments were served by the com-; mittee consisting of Fouudrymeu, who are to be congratulated on giving such a splendid affair. The Foundrymen wish to thank the many friends who so generously dona- ! ted to their refreshments, and to Mr. I Laffy, who superintended the decora I tions, which were the finest ever seen on Douglas Island, and, also, to George Stephens and Alex Graham, who served the punch throughout the evening. They were all Germans. A very prominent young musical gentleman of Treadwell has had the idea for a long time of taking unto him self a wife, and, in conversation with a young Scotchman from Glasgow, en tered into an agreement with him to get him a Scotch bride. The Scotty wrote to the old country, and the pic tures of three lovely looking young ladies were sent out to him on a stamp photo, which was given to the young musical gentleman to choose from. He put it in his pocket, and. being in the ice cream parlor in Douglas, he dropped it on the floor, where it was found the next morning by the sweeper. The ; poor fellow felt so bad about losing the picture that his friends had to persuade the Under to give it back to him, so that he would be able to continue bis work. He evidently has set his mind on having one of the three young lad ies. He feels so elated these days that almost all he can do is to whistle that popular air, "Has anyone here seen Kelly?" Manager Daniel Webster, of the Treadwell Store, left on the Cottage City on his annual purchasing trip to San Francisco.

Members of the German class have been heard to mutter, over and over, "hot air" aud ufinger dry" and other strange, sissing aud sputtering sounds until the freshmen fear that something fiery awaits them in junior year.
