Two years ago he began to be I'onlineil to his house at short intervals by attacks of rheumatism, pneumonia, kidney disease and other affections, which eventually terminated in gen eral dropsical effusion of the body, chest and abdomen, the immediate cause of his sudden death being suf focation from dropsy (l f the chest. He bore his long and severe sufferings pa lieiitly and manfully. Mr. W. was horn in Newberg, N. V., Oct. 30th, I*3l. ai d was one of the pioneeis to the Pacific coast, lie came to Port land, Ofgon, as early as lS."i:i. where was associated for a time with K. .1. Northrup anil his brother Jonas in the hardware business. He came toOlvni pia in ls.it, and was for some time engaged in the express business be tween Portland and Olympia;* liter on lie clerked for Jonas and C. E. Williams, who were in the hardware business in this city. In INGI he went to Napa, Cal., where he engaged in a general mercantile business. May 3d, 1st;:?, he was married to Hulda Phillips, at Napa, by whom he had three children Carrie, now Mrs. harry 15. McKlroy, George A. and David 1,. Phillips. His first wife died Nov. 30, 1*79. In lsii."i, he moved to t'kiah, Cab, ano continued in the same line of business as at Napa. In 1870 he returned to Olympia, and succeeded his brother, Cluu. E. Williams, in the hardware business, which he carried on until 18'. 10. Feb. 9th, 18S2. Mr. Williams married bertha Kroglal, a neicc of the late Chas. Burmeister. Three children were the result of this union, all of whom survive, Charlotte, six years of age; Marie, 4 and Bertha 3. The mother died Marcli 22, 1890. Mr. Williams was a man of excellent business principles, a kind husband and an indulgent father. The last years of his life were passed almost entirely with his family, lie had the misfortune of partial deafness, and this with growing infirmities separated him from that companionship which in early and middle life had made him a welcome companion and associate. It was seldom that he relaxed from apparently a stolid indiference to pass ing events, outside of his home. One of these instances was when the writer made the trip East with Mr. W. as traveling companion, in the summer of 1884. He then demonstrated that lie was possessed of an exceedingly companionable disposition and gener ous nature, ready at all times to en gage in any plan for augmenting the pleasures of the trip.

A MOUNTAIN FROM A MOLE-HII.L.— Our morning contemporary professes to believe that a baker's dozen (it is well to be explicit) of Celestials were smuggled ashore somewhere on Jiudd's Inlet, by a mysterious craft, that had never been seen before yesterday, iu this port. Sho came to the wharf, took water and departed, and that is about all there is to base the belief that thirteen Chinamen have been unlawfully landed on American soil, while the customs ollicers were " cosily covered in their warm nests."

In default, the father was committed to jail. OCK EFFECTS AT THE WOEI.II'S FAIR. —Gov. McGraw, who has just returned from Chicago, reports that the Wash ington Building has been donated to the Chicago Memorial Art Association, provided that organization can obtain permission to keep it as a permanent fixture of Jackson Park, otherwise it goes to the Lumbermen's Association. The exhibit in the building will go to the Art Association, likewise, except such portions as the State University at Seattle, the Agricultural College at Pullman, the Normal School at Ellens burgh, and the State Fair Association at Nortli Yakima, may select. If any thing remains, after this means of dis posal has been tried, it is to be sold for what it will bring. A I'ECKSNUHAN OPINION. — And now conies an architect who says that the records of the Superior Court, stored in the vault of our new $150,- 000 courthouse would not be safe, if a tire should occur in that building, lie says that the weight of the vault rests upon two iron columns, about a foot in diameter, and that if a tire broke out the heat would be the more intense from being confined within granite walls, and would undoubtedly warp and twist these supports out of position and the great weight of the vault would cause it to fall. All this would seem plausible, if there was enough of combustible material used in the construction of the building, or was contained in the furnishings of the offices, to develop that '• intense heat" which is to create such acolapse in a foot of solid iron. It is quite probable that the architect who ex pressed this opinion is a veritable I'ecksniff, with about as much title to talent or originality as the character outlined by the immortal Dickens. DEATH OF A PIONEER. —Capt. J. J. Gilbert received a telegram Tuesday, announcing the death, at San Fran cisco, of Capt. James S. Lawson, of the Coast Survey service. The captain was well-known to all old-time resi dents of this city. For 15 years, from 18(50, he. was a citizen of this place. In 1881 he was transferred to California waters and became a resi dent of San Francisco. Capt. I.awson was (57 years of age. He was a native of Philadelphia, and was educated un der Prof. A. D. Baclie, who was after wards President of Girard College, and still later Superintendent of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Surveys. Upon Bache's appointment he selected Capt. I.awson and other of his pupils for the new service. In 1850 Capt. I.awson and Prof. George Davidson began the coast survey service of the Pacific, and it has ever since engaged their whole attention. The last four or five years of Capt. I,.'s life has been clouded by physical suffering. Rheumatism and indigestion have at times made life a burden to him, but he has borne up well under allliction, and now relief conies in the form of the great allevia tor, Death. Another tie that binds many of our community to the de parted was his zeal in Masonry, and the institution of the Scottish Rite in this State, of which he was the princi pal promoter. " SKIPPED BY THE LIGHT OF THE MOON."—It is safe to say that the amusement goers of this city will re ceive with much satisfaction the an nouncement that on Monday evening, Nov. 13, the famous laughter-produc ing farcical comedy, " Skipped by the Light of the Moon" will be presented at Olympia Theater by Fowler and Warmington's original company of comedians. The play is so well known throughout the country that it is al most needless to comment on it. It has long held its place as being one of the most amusing of stage creations, and with two comedians so full of vitality and humor as Eddie Shayne and Budd Ross at the head of the cast almost any kind of a play, with almost any kind of support would be sure to take; but with this unique combined satire, burlesque and farce, and a whole company of clever peo ple, it becomes simply irresistible. " Skipped" is ipit only " very, very funny," but partakes of the nature of a surprise party. People who were used to settle down decorously after two or three laughs at the average comedy, are constantly surprised into roar after roar of merriment by new burets of bright humor or burlesque, until they begin to grasp hysterically and look appealingly to the stage for protection against the steady bom bardment of fun. The play is simply one of the maddest, wildest farcical inventions ever seen on the stage, and in making people laugh fulfils its whole mission. ■ 1 ♦ A serious cutting affray occurred at Goldendale about 7 o'clock Sunday evening, in front of a hotel.

By timely assistance of comrades in bandaging he was saved from bleeding to death and taken to Walla Walla in a wagon, a distance of 40 miles. They liad a spirited trial at Golden dale, last week, the defendant being one W. H. Hiekcock, who broke open a schoolhouse to hold the Good Templars' lodge meeting. There was any amount of evidence, and lawyers argued the case ably, but the court instructed the jury to lind not guilty, as malice had not been proved. An attractive looking girl of 15, who ran away from her home in a Sound city, was found by the police in company with her older sister and the proprietor of a dance hall at Monte Cristo. The two were trying to get the little girl to enter a life of shame. The mother of the girl arrived in the city and took charge of her daughter. A horse belonging to P. F. O'Brien was killed at Bucoda Saturday morn ing by order of Justice Mason. Constable Girard did the shooting in official capacity. The horse was pro nounced glandered. Mi. O'Brien valued the horse at SSO and writes a letter to the board of county com missioners demanding pay for the animal at his own valuation. Stephen S. Bailey, formerly pro prietor of a Spokane hotel and a member of the city council, is now in Washington, D. C., endeavoring to prefect the title to a large track of valuable timber land on Puget sound, sold to General Russell A. Alger. The purchase price was $25,000 and there still remains the sum of $19,000 due Mr. Bailey when the title is cleared up. The Pierce county bonds for $300,- 000 have not been sold yet, although there are three offers before the com missioners. The prospects are, how ever, that the matter will be favorably disposed of in a day or two. This will throw about $200,000 into circulation in the county, as over $150,000 worth of warrants are held by Tacoma peo ple and the county owes about $50,- 000 more. The Cathlamet Gazette sums up the results of logging ou the Wahkiakum river during the season just closed, in its last issue, and gives tables showing a total output of 25,175,000 feet, as compared with 29,000,000 feet last year. Ten firms on Gray's river contributed 3,000,000 feet; seven at Hkaniokawa, 7,425,000; four at Cath lamet, 8,000,000 feet, and three at Deep river, 3,700,000 feet. Four inches of snow fell at Tekoa Friday night, and reports from other points of the Palouse say that the storm is general. Thousands of acres of wheat are yet standing and hun dreds of farmers have not yet threshed. The daniago will be immense, and comes witii crushing force upon the farmers, who were beginning to believe that they would succeed in saving the portion of their crop not destroyed by the late heavy rain. CENTRALIA ITEMS. (From our Special Correspondent.) The mills in the north end of town have had to shut down on account of high water. It has been raining incessantly for the past 18 hours anil the Chehalis is raising very fast. Johnny Peel, a boy of 15, killed a fine buck deer last Friday. It is the first he ever saw, and he feels quite elated over it. The Chehalis river is out of her banks and still rapidly rising; rain fell heavily all night. Several m snioll bridges are lloating off. Irvin L.. son of Mr. and Mrs. M. 0. Alger, of this city, died Friday even ing, Oct. 27th, after 15 days of illness, aged 0 years, one mouth and eighteen days. Last Friday, while the employes were at dinner, fire was discovered in a dry-house of Copping & Leiteh's shingle mill, The alarm was given anii the fire department were soon on the ground. There being no engineer, the department requested Mr. Sewell to take charge of the fire engine. They worked faithfully for two or three hours, the fire having got a good start before it was discovered, but they managed to confine it to the one dry house which was entirely destroyed. The mill was not touched though the wind was blowing furiously. Mr. Cop ping handed the boys $lO for their valuable assistance. The mill will start up again in a week or two. CENTKALIA, Nov. 7,1893.
