Mrs. Ella Irving is on the sick list. The neighborhood nt>oiit Aycr's hill resembles a small village. Painters are engaged on the inside work of Mavor Gowev's house. The popular thing now is to call your family physician by telephone. Miss Mary O'Ncil's private school was brought to an indefinite close to day. A squad of what looked to lie the advance guard of lobbyists came in last night. Ground is being prepared for three more new dwellings on upper Fourth street. The Tumwater Lumber Company, made an assignment, on Wednesday in favor of John F. Gowev. From all appearances a large number of drummers and commercial agents will take their lay-over season next week in this city. Mr. A. F. Gunu. representing the publishing house of Ivison, Blakeman & Co., made a friendly eall at the OLYMPIAN office to-dav. About a score of strangers are now coming in by steamer and rail, each day, and it is a notable fact that they come here professedly to remain. Acconling to advices from the coun try, there has been little damage so far, done to the hay crop. Improved agricultural machinery now render great losses by bad weather almost impossible. Casual visitors, from distant points, say that Olympia is provided with bet ter means for gas and electric illumi nation than any other similar town on the coast. And yet its own citizens do not forget to complain. Surveyor Brown is about finishing a large job of platting within the cor porate limits of Tumwater. In a few days he will begin the work of survey ing and platting a ten-acre tract ad joining the Woodruff addition. An attempt was made to burn the Eastside school building sometime last night. It seems that a fire had been kindled on the floor, and was seen by the night watchman just in time to be extinguished before serious damage was done. Engineer Tillotson is removing into his new and beautiful residence just completed on the Westside. His house is about as sightly as the dial of the town clock, and .will doubtless prove the nucleus about winch other cottages will gather. The telephone is proving a great convenience to the people of Olym pia and their friends in Tuinwater. There are at present two offices in the latter place, one at the real estate office of George Gelbacli and one in the south part of the town. One of our compositors married Miss White to the wrong man, yesterday, in this column, and utterly spoiled the reporter's joke in his suggestion thai the bride had obtained a wealthy hus band. The lucky man was not Mr. Henry, but Mr. Harvey Rich, who doubtless will be the last man to see anything suggestive of hilarity in such errors. William Rawley, an old soldier liv ing at Tenino, went home yesterday the happiest man in Thurston county. He had suffered for over 20 years, from the effects of a large swelling, which every doctor he consulted since the war, called an incurable hernia, and he has spent most of his earnings for medi cine and trusses. Two doctors had examined him for a pension and de scribed his trouble to be hernia of the worst and most dangerous kind, and made affidavit to that effect. The oth er day a friend advised him to see a a surgeon in this city who had not previously been consulted, and who after a careful examination, informed him that his trouble was not hernia, but hydrocele, and, therefore, perfectly curable, and proved his diognosis to be correct by an operation which removed the enlargement at once. From the daily of Saturday. The rainfall has evidently about ex pended itself. Olympia truckmen have donned their rough weather covers. Mr. Jos. Robinson went to Taconta this week, on professional business. The rain and shine of the day just passed woqld fill up a variety pro gramme. Misses Rena Cevan&ugb and Bessie Lee made a visit among down Sound friends this week. The sidewalks of OlvmpiA have been literally blockaded to-day by tons upon tons of merchandise. Olympia's quondam citizen, John . Ostrander, accompanied by his wife, is visiting relatives in this city. The potato crop of the upper Sound section is receiving a full sliare of benefit from the present rajn. Scow loads of newly peeled fir hark are coming in from neighboring camps, and now is tlie proper time for winter tupplies to be secured. " A hundred times more good than harm," is the common rejoinder of people from the country, when rallied in regard to what the rain is doing for them. Bates Cavanaugh, Cadet at West Point Academy, has again come off number one at a late competitive ex amination at that institution. It is encouraging to hear that a good many delegates of the Convention have succeeded in obtaining comfort able i[tiarters for the session in many of the private residences of this city. This is as it should be. Even the untutored Indians are making their usual preparations to come in and enjoy the doings of the Fourth. Our national holiday is al ways welcomed by the olden-time Si wasli, his aunts," his sisters and cons ins. Delegate J. J. Browne, ot the Consti tutional Convention, l as arrived with his family, and will occupy the resi dence on the southwest corner of Fourth and Franklin streets. It looks like business to see a delegate come bringing his family with him. Let others follow his example. Harvey Clark, tlie popular represen tative of tlie firm of Moore, Hunt & Co., San Francisco, returned last niglit from the Gray's Harbor country. He says tliat section of the country is in a flourishing condition, every train bringing loads of passengers who are most favorably impressed with the country and express their intention of remaining. lie says that Aberdeen and Hoquiam are going ahead rapidly, and that the contractors complain of a dearth of mechanics. Work on many of the large buildings there has been stopjied as mechanics cannot lie found in spite of the liberal wages of fered. From the daily of Monday Yesterday was the second Sunday aftur Trinity. The true American citizen is din-or ating his house. Mr. W. H. Clark, of Shelton, is in thecitv to-dav. Rev. J. R.

Wilcox, of the United States Fish Commission is in Olympia. Work upon the removal of the post office building commenced this morn ing. The Street Commissioner has a force of men at work on the West side. The steamer Fleetwood is on the gridiron today, undergoing some slight repairs. Mr. John Lawrence, General Mana ger of the Sunset Telephone Co., is in the city. Mrs. Haidee Berry went down to Shelton to-day, to visit her father, Mr. A. J. Baldwin. This is the last day of grace before the Sherill' will sell property for de linquent taxes. From every quarter comes the an nouncement of balls and merry-mak ings during the Fourth. Attempts at petty burglaries are becoming unpleasantly frequent in the upper portions of the city. Many friends of Gen. R. G. O'Brien will regret to learn that he has lieen ill for the past few days. The enumeration of st-liool children in Olympia District foots up 778, an increase of 155 over last year. Miss Lydia Christian won and Mike Martenson were married by Judge Keadv, at his office-, last Saturday.

Lee conducting the services. Frank Henry, Jr., has been awarded a contract by the Surveyor General for the survey of two townships in section 16 north, range 7 and 8 west. This tract lies within six miles of Montesa no, and its survey will open up a fine tract nf farming land to settlement. ("apt. Doauc entertained his friends in royal style Saturday evening, the occasion being a house-warming of his new and very neat establishment on Fifth street. Oysters, ice-cream, sand wiches and beer were dispensed to all who called, and their number is legion. Mr. Richard Airev, recently from California, has opened a neat boot and shoe shop on Fourth street, oppo site Columbia Hall. He is fitting up the front part of the building for a salesroom which will soon he filled with a stock of goods. The Golden Boot is his sign. Arrangements have been made with the Northern Pacific railroad whereby visitors to the Institute held by tlie Territorial Roard of Education, in Olvmpia, July Bth, 9th and 10th will he returned at one-fifth the usual fare. Efforts will lie made to arrange similar terms with the Olvmpia & Chchalis Valley railroad. A house-breaker entered the resi dence of Governor Newell, yesterday morning, between three and four o'clock, by the kitchen window. He was discovered before he had se cured any plunder and made his escape by tlie kitchen door wliieb lie had left open. A glance at the prints of his heavy tread indicated a rather large man. He had removed his shoes. The School Board held a meeting to-day, to receive the report of the District Clerk and to transact such other business as jiertained to the Olvmpia public schools. The enum eration of children of school age amounts to about eight hundred. An order was made for furnishing the upper and lower rooms of the old Odd Fellows' 1a 11 with necessary seats, desks, and other furniture. Mr. Rufus T. Jones was asleep in a chair, last Saturday night, at the residence of Mr. F. M. Canaday, tr burglar raised the lower sash of the window, reached through and took the occdpant's vest, containing a gold watch and chain, $5 in money and a ticket good for eleven meals at the Gold Bar restaurant. This would seem to suggest the propriety of num bering the meal tickets sold at eating houses. The Thurston County Medical Asso ciation was organized Saturday even ing, at the office of Dr. Flannigan, by the election of Drs. N. C. Ostrander, President; W. Riley, Vice-President; C. L. Flannigan, Secretary; and W. L. Goodspeed. Treasurer. The associa tion drafted a bill to be submitted to the next legislature, regulating the practice of medicine in the new State of Washington. Meetings of the asso ciation will lie held on the first and third Saturdays of each month. The Raymond <fc Wilsliirc safe at the Pipe Factory on the Eastside, was the object of a burglarious attack Friday night, but the hardness of the steel proved too much for the endurance of the cracksmen, and they departed without having accomplished their ob ject. Two holes had been drilled through the outer casing and into the filling, one 2J inches deep and the other atiout half that distance, but probably daylight came on before an apjierturo wns sufficiently large to charge with dynamite, or some other explosive, to remove the lock. The attempt was undoubtedly made after 12:30 o'clock, at which time the fac tory shut down for the night. \n en trance to the office had been effected by the window, the sill of which bears evidence of the use of a pry to force the catch on the sash above: The safe is not in the least damaged, for Mr. Mason, the superintendent and ma chinist, declares he can plug up the holes with steel and make the plate as impervious as ever. The cracksmen, had they obtained admission to the safe would have had their labor for their reward. The com pany keeps its money in the bank, and the safe is used only as a protection to their book* from fire. There is seldom enough coin in the safe to pay for the wear and tear of drills, to say nothing of the lalwir and worry that attends such efforts. The p"rpetrntion of such an act shows, however, that we have profes sional safe robbers in our midst, and it would be well to keep a colt on duty if vou have no first-class w.stch-dog. ARIZONA is moving for Statehood. There is no reason why she should not achieve it. She has permanent resour ces, no lack of statesmen to guide her destinies and willing souls to hold her offices. THE men arrested for killing Cronin art all just bursting with confessions that don't confess. But in all these secret society assasinatidlis there is al ways one fellow who turns traitor, and when that fellow gets ready the hang man will follow. Attempted Burglar}-. TERRITORIAL HAPPENINGS. Mrs. Gdeneal, of Taeoma, has been appointed to a clerkship in the custom house. A new Catholic church and school are to be instituted in Colfax this summer.

Mr. R. Merchant, manager of the Seattle Steam Candy Company, was burned out in 1882, in Cherry street; in 1884, in the cracker factory, and in the late tire Tost everything but his energy and faith in Seattle.

If such exists, advise us."

He was thrown from a buggy while riding with his wife and baby, and had several ribs broken by the fall. He is not expected to live. The Sprague Moil is no more. It will require a nervy man to stand up under the present adversity, and if something don't happen several more will keep it company in its lonely watches. Who knows who will be the next. Matt, farewell, if forever, then forever farewell. Hon John L. Wilson, of Spokane Falls will deliver the Fourth of July oration at Ritzyille. Mr. Wilson has the reputation of being one of the most eloquent and forcible speakers in the northwest, and the committee has been very fortunate to secure the ser vices of so able a man. Joseph Btinson, of Hloomington, 111. has lieen appointed Timber Agent for Spokane Falls, Walla Walla, Lewiston and Cieur d' Alene districts, vice Wayne Ferguson, of West Virginia, removed. Another example of the way President Harrison enforces home rule in the Territories. M essrs. Aniunds and Loomen, of Spokane Falls, well-to-do mining men, were visiting Messrs. (Jilmore and Adams the first of this week at their mine on the Mill and Deep creek di vide. They are greatly pleased at the showing there and will probably secure property in that vicinity. W. Stewart, living in the Stuck val ley, about seven miles from Puyallup, has raised and sold from a Harden con taining only three-quarters of an acre, over $450 worth of lettuce, radishes, spinach and otl er garden truck so far this season, an I states that the patch will this season produce over SI,OOO worth of vegetables. Scatcrod aliout Seattle are many fun ny signs which show as much as any thing else the fact that the losers bv the fire are far from disheartened. One sign reads: " Forced to remove on ac count of climatic changes." Other samples are: "Glad to la-on earth;" " Slightly disfigured, but still in the ring;" "Our name is Phoenix;" " What is left of us can be found with in ;" "We will stay with the town " New Seattle or burst."

The troops at Fort Walla Walla have lieen ordered to proceed to Che lan, where they will go into camp for the purpose of enlarging their knowl edge of field duty. F. S. Musscter, formerly editor of the Seattle Press, is interesting Taeo ma capitalists in a bank which he is starting at Shelton. The capital stock is nearlv all subscribed.
