L. t . liickford who recently rc ' turned from an extensive trip blast [ says the " times seem to be as hard there as they are here, hut the people don't say so much about them." The rough ungainly piece of ground adjoining the Ulympia hotel on the north, has been transformed into a pleasant parterre which will soon be covered with a carpet of green sward. The side walk on the west side of Washington street, between Sixth and Seventh streets has been removed and the ground will he properly grad ed along the line of the public square. Judge Lacey should sue the Olym pian-'! fibune for libel. The caricature representation of his classic features, as an illustration in the Manviile trial, would induce any jury to award liirn liberal damages. Bcriali Brown, of Seattle, the vet eran journalist, has been visiting friends in this city the past few days. Mr. Brown was connected with the ed itorial management of this paper, a year or more, in 1870-71. The little steam launch Seaside has been anchored in front of the Westside mill for some time. It is understood that the United States has a claim against the owner of that boat of S2OO for running her without licensed men. 'I he good work of the dredger can be seen in all its excellence when the tide is out. From Fourth street bridge a bright line of water extends from the stern of the great machine down to where it is lost in deep water. An Olympia young lady of culture says her lover sparks her "in the gloam ing." Pshaw! how times do change the names of the commonest things. It used to lie done in the big rocking chair and people made no fuss about it either. The Aberdeen, now in Seattle un dergoing repairs, will soon lie back on the regular Olympia and Shelton run. This will make five boats that tcuch at Olympia regularly—the Multno mah, Doctor, Clara Brown, Willie and the Aberdeen. A good way to use Q-cumhers and green apples, about these days, is to chop them up together and throw them out of the pantry window. No deleterious effects to children were ever known to result from a practical use of this formula. The old gas light posts, with their dilapidated lamps, at various street corners, should be removed. While they strongly illustrate the evolution that has taken place in street illumi nation, their presence is far from an ornament to the city. It reminds an observer of other days to see work resumed at the East side brick-yard. Twenty-five years ago this yard was in operation, and only for short intervals since its first opening lias work been wholly shut down within its limits. Girls with great puffy sleeves above the elbows are coming into fashion. In one of the dress-making parlors this morning an average Olympia girl measured seven feet around the shoul ders. No wonder there is an infla tion in the financial world. An economist remards that the warehouse at the end of Long Wharf, like the old gray goose, is worth saving, and that steps should be taken to reclaim the material it contains be fore it tumbles into the banks of mud thrown up by the dig dredger. The Capital City Band played to a large and appreciative audience at their open air concert in the band stand, last evening. The music was all of a high class and rendered in the mok pleasing manner. Another concert will be given next Wednesday evening. Speaking of the wheelmen return ing from Portland, yesterday's local daily remarks, " Mr. Christopher was compelled to ride much of the distance with one leg, he haviug not fully re covered front his recent accident." The STANDARD was not aware that the gentleman referred to had lost a leg during his recent accident. Elwood Evans, President of the Washington State Bar Association has called a meeting of that body to he held at the office of the Secretary, N. S. Porter, No. 416 Franklin street, in this city, on Tuesday,the 15th inst., at 1:30 p. M , to elect three delegates to the American Bar Association, which will meet at Wilwaukee, Wis., on the 30th inst. The fire committee have declared the tire-escapes on Olympia Theater are unsafe. It is only necessary to state that tliry were built in accord ance with plans and details of Munn A t'u.'s architectural bureau, an ad junct of the Scientific American, and were constructed by Mr. Alexander, one of the U-st builders ill the Slate, to show what faith should be plaeed in the opinion of an assumed " expert" who Iritis up on s|H-lling the simple word " fire." *1 Prices la Walt the Tlau I will sell knives, brushes, raxors and but I era' outfits, hereafter, at strict ly cost prkrt ■ fall and see if this is not so. J. L. BROWN. Olympia, Aug. 4, 1*1)3. tf A MODEL MILK K AXC'H. PURITY OF FOOD AN ESSENTIAL FOR HEALTH. Shield* A Tn tie It SC«III le Have Sur rounded ThrMftdvei \%IHi All Hie Condition* \% liicli <;uaraul) 11 Wholesome I'rodiu i. Probably no greater menace to health exists to-day than the use of impure articles of food. What we eat ami drink, and its condition when it enters the system and becomes a part of the animal tissue, must of necessity detern iimany of the conditions of health and disease. Many cases of typhoid have been traced to the use of impure water, and doubtless the seeds of many an insidi ous disease have been transmitted by the use of the tlesh of animals that were not in healthy condition at the time they were slaughtered for food, ['lie old Jewish law, requiring in spec- iiw, requiring inspec tion of animal* killed for public use, was a wise one, and it is a marvel that sum.; such statutory provision does not ( xist at the present day. Longev ity, health and happiness would tin. doulitedly be promoted by such a sani larv regulation,and this should be the highest object of legislation. One of the most common and essen tial articles of daily consumption, for children anil adults, is the simple ne cessity, milk, yet how few consumers, living in the city, seek to ascertain the condition of the source of supply, or ever see the animals from which "it is derived! A paragraph was going the rounds of the press, a few days ago, giving the unsavory assurance that a whole herd of cows, in an ad joining county was atllicted with a disease resembling consumption in the human frame, whose milk was sent to a neighboring city and sold for domes tic use. Whether this report was lit erally true or not.it suggests the ne cessity of some attention to such an important matter of diet. Having expressed these views pub licly, the writer was invited, the other day, to visit and inspect one of the leading milk ranches near this city— that of Messrs. Shields <fc Tanck, em bracing about filX) acres, of the old Kindred farm, just beyond Tumwater, leased from 11. \V. Johns, its present owner, by that firm. The visit was made at " Milking time," when all the cows were in the barn and the call and its object unanticipated by those in charge. About 40 cows were under going the process of milking, by the two attendants. One-fourth of the stock were Jerseys, and all were evi dently selected from the best of their respective classes, for there was not a lean, deformed or decrepit animal in the herd. Their size was more than average, their hides smooth, their eyes bright and in every particular they seemed to be in perfectly healthful condition. And the reason, on inves tigation, was apparent. The selection of good stock was tho beginning, and securing an excellent range, providing ample supply of pure water from living springs, and keeping the large barns stored with the most nutritious of aids to the range croppings, fed at times and in quantities which experience has shown to be productive of the best re sults, were the other conditions for a high grade of product. It is the object of this enterprising firm to substitute Jerseys for all in fetior breeds, as soon as possiole, as their experience has shown that the best results can be attained by the use exclusively of this high grade of stock. Messrs. Sheilds & Tanck feel a com mendable pride in their business, which is another guaranty of success The senior member of the firm began business in this city, seven years ago, witli one cow, and so excellent was this limited service, that the number of his customers constantly grew, until he had to leave town and secure a large tract of land for a range, besides tak ing in an experienced partner, familiar with the business as conducted in the old country. The milk on this ranch, soon as it leaves the cows, passes into a large receiver through two cloth strainers, and from this it is drawn into cans and placed in a large trough of run ning, cool water. The cans are rinsed as often as used ill strong suds, rinsed with warm water, and then placed inverted in a rack exposed to the air. The milk room, stables and everything appertaining to the busi ness are models of neatness, and the utmost care is taken to have every utensil as clean as intelligence and la bor can make it. The writer returned well pleased with the results of his visit. He drinks his coffee And tea with a re stored confidence that it does not con tain an ingredient which may be det rimental to health, and believing that this assurance will be of benefit to the community, he has devoted the spflce to the topic which he i>elieves its im portance deserves. His PROPERTY TRIMMED. —The high ground on which the residence of Aaron Hartsock is situated on the Eastside lias been "trimmed" by the Street Commissioner so it will afford a sidewalk for the recent improve ments along East Bay Avenue. The trimming process will really result in an improvement to the property. HOME AOAIN.—M. G. Royal has re turned to Olympia to make arrange ments for the removal of his family to Weston, Oregon, where he has charge of the Eastern Oregon normal school. He will leave again in about two weeks. Mr. Royal says there is a splendid wheat crop in Eastern Oregon this year and therefore the farmers consider themselves prosperous. THE MAYOR REJOICED. Mayor Robinson, a few days ago, received information that the " Cavanaugh Collapsable Cylinder Company," in which he is deeply concerned, suc ceeded in raising a ship in New York harbor. General Cavanaugh is East, looking after the interests of this wonderful device for raising sunken vessels. A vessel was raised in Puget Sound not long ago by the same pro cess. A NOVEL LANDING. —The dredger is now in front of I'ercival's dock. Yes terday morning the Willey and the D<>ctor were obliged to use the dredger for a landing place, because they were unable to pass on to the regular land ing. Passengers and freight were taken out in row boats. This will not last long, however, as the dredger is working on toward the end of the channel nt a good speed. It is obliged to lie idle nl low tide, however, on ac count of absence of water with which to operate. No RUSH, —There has not been much of a rush on the part of property owners to have their taxes changed hy the county hoard of equalization. Thia is perhaps due to the fact that there was some delay at the early part of the week on account of alterations that hail to be made in the figures by the Assessor. A few inquiries have been made up to the present date hut when it became generally known that the Commissioners are here for the purpose of registering •• kicks" it is quite likely that they will come in fast enough. I nxpayers are urged to say what they have to say ahout taxes now, or forever after hold their peace. MOKE POTATOES. Potato farmers living in tlie 11. iglilx rhood of Olympia rejoiced greatly over the rain of last Snmlay. They say the rain had a wonderful rfleet on the potato crop, which was suth ring greatly from lack of rain. MRS. HOPKINS lU.—Mrs. Hopkins was brought to Olympia from Oak tale Wednesday, suffering from an attack of dropsy. She is at the home of her son, George S. Hopkins, 011 the East side, where she is given every possible attention. ■SEMOI .-I.V III.—J. \V. Smith a well known resident of the East side was taken suddenly ill, Tuesday night, with congestion of the lungs. He suffered intense pain and at times the watchers thought he was dead. He rallied how ever, and began to recover slowly and is now doing well. IT WILL MISS THE DOCK. The channel now being dredged will mi.-s the north part of Percivafs dock for ipiite a distance. It w.U come qui It* close, however, opposite the freight house. Mr. Pereival, to get the ftrll benefit of the channel, will either have to extend his dock or have dredging done at his own expense. THE I'K'XIT; NEXT SINDAY.—Don't forget the Gcrmania picnic at the Fair Grounds, Sunday. Everything to cat and drink will he provided, and much that will amuse has been arranged for, ami it promises to he the greatest fete of the outdoor season. It is given un der the management of A. Boesl, Vice President of the Gcrmania Society. IT WOULD NOT WORK.—An cilbrt wan made Wednesday to decorate the hand stand with a flag, or jiennant, hut owing to the shortness of the stall' the (lag did not make a good showing and was removed. A stall' of the proper height and a neat flag at the top of it on great occasions, would add to the attractiveness of the square. A STRONG PROTEST. —Captain L. W'illey of tlie steamer Multuomali went to l'ort Townseml, Tuesday, with a statement of facts as to the alleged overloading of his steamer, on the oc casion of tlie Methodist picnic, July 19, together with a strong petition from .State, county, city otlicers and prominent citizens" asking that the tine of SI,OOO he remitted. AN ALLECED ERROR. —It is claimed that the space between Percival's dock and the channel that is being dredged is due to an error in tlie survey of the harbor in laying down the harbor lines. The error occurred in running one of the principal lines at right angles with Fourth street at a point where there was a slight turn in the street thus causing it to swerve to the west as it extended north. A WARNING. —Persons who go boat riiling are warned not to go near tlie dredger pontoons while the tide is running out. When tlie tide is strong tlie ]ion toons cause the water to whirl into a suet ou strong enough to carry a boat under. One boat was upset Wednesday by this suction, but fortu nately nobody was injured. Keep away from the pontoons, if you wish to escape a ducking. A WEDDING. —WiIIiam Morford, of Sunnydale, King county, and Miss Velins Mumford, of this city, were married at the residence of the bride, last night, in the presence of members of the family and a number of friends. Rev. I)r. Bright performed the cere mony. Mr. and Mrs Morford are well known in Otympia. Their many friends wish them much happiness. They will leave for Dumiyrlale to morrow morning. SUFFERING FAMILIES. —Those in terested in charily work organizations say there is considerable suffering among people who are out of money and cannot obtain work. These families, those whom their neighbors little suspect of being " hard up". One butcher is furnishing meat to 2G families that are unable to pay. at present. He allows tliem rations with the expectation of getting bis money some time in the future. GRAND DOINGS AT THE TARE.—Sun day, the 20th inst., will be a gala day at tho Fair Grounds. Miss Hazel Keyes, the famous aeronaut, will make an ascension to the height of 3,000 feet, or more than half H mile, and descend by the aid of a parachute. The San Jose Mercury in alluding to Ibis greatest lady lerialist of America says: " The ascension was a complete success, and the daring deed was a never-to-be-forgotten sight to all who witnessed it." SATISFACTORY WEATHER. —Director Alciatore of the State weather service says the weather during the last six weeks has literally been made to order. It has been everything the farmers could desire. Wheat is doing well and crops of all kinds are far beyond the reach of bad weather. Wheat is being threshed in the southeastern part of the State. While there has been no increase in the acreage this year the yield will be heavier per acre than it was last year. THE PRICE OF BACON. —People who have been out camping for a week or more came home with the expecta tatiou of finding bacon down to a reasonable price, in view of the sweep ing reduction recently made by the packers. They were disappointed, however, liy ihe announcement of the urbane Olympia butchers that the wholesalers in this part of the country had so much bacon on hand that it would he some time before it would be worked off so the new prices would be enjoyed by Ihe consumer. MARCH OF IMPROVKMNT.—A short term of years ago, a Chinaman carried his vegetables through the streets of Olympia upon the ancient bamboo pole across his shoulder. He next conveyed his garden truck in rather a decent looking wheelbarrow. His next improvement was a one-horse cart, then, a second hand delivery wagon. Now, he proudly sits upright on the spring seat of a neat two-horse wagon, smoking a meerchaum and peddling first-class vegetables from bouse to house. This is a lesson for Olympia. (}I:ITE INTERESTING.— In view of the controversy over the construction of a railway on Water and First streets. Olyinpia, the rulings of the Supreme Court this week will be of interest. In the Railroad avenue case, from Seattle, the court holds that a muni cipal corporation cannot condemn or take possession of land for the purpose of giving it to a railroad corporation and that a city cannot either engage in the construction of railroad or ren der assistance to a corporation of that kind. Cities merely have the power to regulate but cannot engage in the actual work of construction. A HORRIBLE ACCIUENT. —John Nor mandcau, a French Canadian, aged about 38 years met with a horrible accident, in a logging camp, near hhelton, Wednesday, by the breaking of a wire cable, with which a large log was being moved. The cable broke under great tension and the recoil threw it back with great vio lence. It hurled Mr. N. about 40 feet into the brush, mashing both legs and bruising his arms dreadfully. Both legs had to he amputated, anil the J chances now are that the sufferer will j recover, hut lie is not out of danger. Dr. Riley performed the operation. THE llAini M CHANNEL.—L N regard to the harhor ipiestiou now being dis <'U-sid, the hist policy for Olvmpia people to adopt is to lie satisfied with what they get and hope for mine. It the channel is a narrow one, it is bet ter than no channel at all. If the larger steamers cannot do otherwise they can hack down to deep water, ami it is better for steamers to do this than that they should give Olympia the go by. Another appropriation can he applied lor widening the harhor in the vicinity of Fourth street fridge. The project of tilling in tide lots owned by private parties is a good one. The material to till these lots will be taken of course, out of the channel immediately adjoining such lots. Hence a double gain in adopt ing the plan. OLYMPIA GRAPHITE COMPANY.— Articles of incorporation of the Olym pia Graphite Company have been tiled with the Secretary of State and there will he a meeting Wednesday to elect officers and arrange for the com mencement of active operations. Those interested in this enterprise are Judge Uiihinson,Gemge A. Mottman, K. A. Graham, W. A. Wet more, Thomas Swan, Win Kearney, Iyouis Stump, George Stump, and James Kadelilfe. The mine is in Lewis county near Chehalis. The ledge is fifteen feet thick and the graphite found therein is of remarkable purity and. easy to work. The present indications are that a plant costing slo,ooo will he put in at the outset The organizers or tiie company con sider this enterprise of more value than a gold mine because of the scarcity of graphite in the United States and the steady demand there is for it in making lead pencils and for use in founderics. CAPITOL GKHNDS.—Thirteen men are at work upon the capitol grounds, five being in charge of A. J. Gillis who is doing the surveying and platting, while eight are cutting out the under brush, trimming trees, etc. The Com mission will take steps toward open ing the avenue from Main street to the grounds as soon as Mr. Gillis com pletes the plat. This avenue will be 100 feet wide. The land was donated by property owners along the proposed routewith the understanding that when it ceased to he used by the State as a public highway i*. should revert to the donors. Mr. Rice, who has general charge of Ihe work, says the lake in the center of the grounds will he cleaned out and the basin tilled with water from the hydrant. A gardener in the neighborhood has been using the water iu the lake for irrigation purposes and thus it has been drained. A contour map of the grounds will lie made so as to enable the Commis sion to locate all the buildings and arrange the grounds without being compelled to look tliein over all the time. MOKE IMPROVEMENTS. —Negotiations are pending between Captain A. L. Horner, manager of the dredging com pany, and the city, for the filling in of First, Second and Third streets on the west, the material to be taken from tlie channel now being dug. Captain Horner will lie in Olympia again Sat urday morning and will hold an in formal conference with tlie members of the City Council and Mayor Robin son. It is understood that Mr. Horner is willing to put the dredgings in the places desired for six cents per cubic yard. In case the city or property owners do not take advantage of this offer the dredgings will be deposited on the flats opposite the city dock. The property owners interested are T. 11. Phipps, one lot; Mrs. Percival, two lots; T. M. Reed, two lots; Mrs. llule, two lots; Mrs. Rabbeson, one lot; A. A. Hunter, four lots, and Freman Urown, one block, all situated adjoining one another just east of Percival's dock. These property own ers will be asked to join with the city iu these improvements. INTERESTING FEATURES. —There are a number of interesting features in connection with the examination of George \V\ Manville for the murder of J. 8. McCabe. One of tliem is that the attorneys for the defence, by a stratagem known only to members of the legal profession, succeeded in getting the State to show its strength and then failed to " uncover." In oilier words the attorneys who have been engaged to defend Manville know what the attorneys for the State will try to prove but the State does not have the slightest inkling what plea will be made by the defence. The matter is the subject of no little discussiou among attorneys and those who are discerning enough to under stand the significance of legal tactics. A story was out yesterday that an ap plication would be made fpr a change of venue to Vancouver, but some were inclined to look upon the rumor as having been set in circulation for a purpose. According the rules and regulations governing such matters a case of this kind will lake precedence over civil coses and minor crimes, therefore it is quiet likely that Man ville will be tried early in the term. The Superior Court will meet Septem ber 2. There is considerable specula tion as to the future. IF you want a reliable dye that will color an even brown or black, and will please and satisfy you every lime, use Buckingham's Dye for the Whiskers. The Puyallup Commerce declares that the city council of that town has sold some of the streets for delinquent taxes. HAVE we any truly great men at the present day? Some dtnibt it, and ask to be shown the modern Wash ington, Frauklin, or Webster. How ever this may be, of one thing we are sure, there never was a greater blood purifier than Ayer's Sarsaparilla. Early peaches, plums, tomatoes, cu cumbers and green corn are on the market at Wenatchee, the product of the surrounding ranches. Alfalfa is nearly ready for the second cutting in that locality. When Baby was sick, w,* gave her Caatoria. When she wss a Child, she cried for Caatoria. When she became Miss, she clung lo Caatoria. When she bad Children, she gave them Caatoria ■-• • a Eastern capitalists are starting a colony near Shelton, where they have invested $30,000 in land. D-rMCFS C^lpowder The only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.—No Ammonia; No Alum. Used in Millions ofHomes— 40 .Years the Standard. THE BEST APERIENT In modern pharmacy is, undoubted, ly, Ayer's Cathartic I'ills. Except in extreme eases, physicians have abandoned the use of drastic purga tives, and recommend a milder, hut no less effective medicine. The favo rite is Ayer's Pills, the superior medicinal virtues of which have been certified to under the official seals of state chemists, as well as by hosts of eminent doctors and pharmacists. No other pill so well supplies the demand of the general public for a safe, certain, and agree able family medicine. "Ayer's Pills are the best medicine I ever used; and in my judgment no better geueral remedy was Ever Devised I have used them in my family and caused them to he used among my friends and em ployes for more than twenty years. To my certain knowledge many cases of the follow ing complaints have been completely and permanently cured by the use of Ayer's I'ills alone: Third day chills, dumb ague, bilious fever, sick headache, rheumatism, flux, dys pepsia, constipation, ami hard colds. I know that a moderate use oi Ayer's I'ills, contin ued for a few days or weeks, as the nature of the complaint required, would he found an absolute cure for the disorders I have named above." —J. O. Wilson, Contractor and Builder, Sulphur Springs, Texas. " For eight years I was afflicted with con stipation, which at last beeame so bad that the doctors could do no more fur me. Then 1 began to take Ayer's Pills ami soon the bowels recovered tlielr natural anil regular action, so that now I am in ex cellent health."—Wm. H. DeLaucett, Dorset, Ontario.

Senator David B. Hill, in his speech at Brooklyn, on the 23d of September, 1890, which was shortly after the pas sage of the Sherman abomination, saw the fatal results of the act, and then said: " The new monetary legislation of Congress, as exemplified in the recent silver act, redoubles the latest, repeats the earliest and perpetuates the worst of those errors which for nearly thirty years have made unsound finance a daily national instruction and honey combed the Constitution with Re publican law. Instead of executing the granted power to coin the people's gold and silver into money, instead of effecting its circulation by gold and silver certificates strictly representa tive of coin, dollar for dollar, this Republican Congress has now man aged, without the excuse of war or the pretense of necessity, to add another new-fangled legal tender to that promissory debt currency which the United States Supreme Court, before it was packed to reverse its own decision, rightly adjudged illegal. After twelve years failure by com pulsory treasury silver purchase to promote free bimetallic coinage at home or abroad the Republican party, is trying to deceive the people by the claim of having settled what it calls " tlie silver question." The assump tion is an unwarranted as it is deceiv ing. The recent legislation of Congress is merely a temporary ex pedient. It will give permanent satisfaction nowhere. It puts a heavier strain upon our resources than free bimetallic coinage without foreign o» operation would do and obstructs our progress toward that end which we all desire to reach—the free coin age of silvtr under a proper inter national ratio. STATE NEWS. Louis I. Fowler, of Everett, lias been arrested, charged with embezzlement.
