oi vnrit, WASH. ■FRIDAY EYEMNIi, JAM ARY 31, 1596. Pie-Maker vs. Pie-Eater. The Seattle Republican " jacks up" the Olympian, for its comments upon its reported interview with Chairman Swealland, of tlie Republican State Committee, and the affair is assuming the importance of a mill between a Jackson and a Corbett, with about the same chances of a victory, hs was the result of the sanguinary contlict be tween those pugilistic champions a few years ago, which ended in a draw after four hours ot hard fighting. The editor of the " Pot-pie," in the Republican —which contains a spice and flavor that at times sets the teeth of Republican aspirants for position " on edge"—said in a late issue: " The mighty wrath of the Olympian has fallen upon the heads of both Chair man Sweatlandand the Pie-maker of this paper and if the pair are not now totally annihilated it is no fault of the editor of our evening contemporary at the State capitol." The Olympian denies that it was in a spirit of " wrath," or anything ap proaching it, that it had commented upon Chairman Sweatland's statement to the Republican. It declares that it simply wanted to brand as false tbe assertions made by the figure-head of its party and to caution the pie-maker to "be a little more analytic and not quite so unctious." The fact is that the Olympian is not skilled in the lan guage of diplomacy. It has not yet learned that art by which language may be used to conceal ideas, and in its exuberance of zeal and in tbe ear nestness with which it arrbgates to it self the privileges and prerogatives of a party leader, has fallen into the habit of cracking the whip over the shoul ders of the rank and file of its parly, and tbe pie-maker very naturally con cluded tliat the demonstration was in stigated by a wrathful disposition. That our readers may possess a full ut.derstanding of the cause of this-dis turbance between two so prominent members of the g. o. p. we quote the Republican's report of what Chairman Hweatland said: " There is no union in the party, that is to jsav, there is no party organization in the State, and until there is, there is no use expecting anything to be done on anything like business principles. The chairman of the State Central Committee is at a_ loss to tell anything about the condition of the State politically, only when he learns from this or that man,' and in the majority of instances that is told in the interest of some particular candidate. The success of the Republi can party in the State heretofore has been nothing more nor less than the tossing up of a penny, with " head I win and tails you lose" and each time the Republicans have called the turn and won. Some of these times, unless there is thorough organization perfected, the Republicans will wake up after a State election and find that they have lost every State candidate, and all be cause every fellow is trying to run his own campaign. The organization of the Republican party should be as lasting as the government itself, and its organi zation kept up just as closely after an election as during the campaign, so that the central committee can at all times be able to give any information that is desired in the interest of the party." Now it is fair to assume that the chairman of the State Committee has about as good an opportunity for judg ing of the status of the party as any of its members, and the fact that as wide-awake a writer and as zealous a a partisan as the " pie-maker" gave it a quaei-endorsement, passes for some thing in forming a judgment as um pire of the game, and the bare contra diction of the Olympian therefore goes for little in establishing a " foul." The Republican comes in for re newed censure from Ihe official organ for asserting that the A. P. A. have a much better organization than the Republican party. But in this matter it must be admitted that the " Pie maker" is much the better judge, for be baa just had an opportunity of forming a correct opinion of dark-lan tern methods in the local school elec tion, which left all other parties stranded upon the shoals of arrogant presumption. In fact the Olympian seems disposed to close its eyes to a fact that is apparent to many besides its colleague. It declares that it has " yet to be advised" that the A. P. A. "is a political party." The people of Seattle have no such doubt,. They know it from their late experience, and if the Olympian is not convinced oi the fact, it utterly ignores that and many other equally palpable evi dences upon which to base an opinion. Facts will not down at anybody's bid ding, and it is fair to assume that a party which holds meetings at stafed intervals, formulates plans in secret conclave, nominates candidates for po litical offices by stealth, and elects them by big majorities, has a pretty fair organisation. So we must score that round also for the " Pie-maker." The Republican suggests the organi zation of clubs to break.up this apa thetic condition, a proposition which the Olympian jumps upon with both feet. It declares that This notion that some one must be running over the State at somebody else's expense to organize " clubs" has al ways a very selfish side to it. The peo ple are "clubbed" to death and espe cially those who are continually hounded to put up money to pay somebody's ex penses "to go out and organize," while no organizing ever takes place. There are two kinds of political workers in this State. One class works to build up the party and is always alert to the interests of the people. The other class " works" every one who will consent to be milked without kicking. There are some per sons who are putting up this " organiza tion" scheme as a convenient method to get in their " work." Great care is taken after this ex pression of detestation of what, if that journal was commenting upon Popu lists, would be classified as " walking delegates," to dodge the blow that it had reason to expect as a response. It says that "no personal reference is intended either to the Republican or its editor." It is quite evident, from this attempt to avert consequences, that the court-organ has a much higher respect for a " rod in pickle" than it ha 9 for a stuffed club on pa rade duty. How long this contention is to ex ist between the two leading Republi can journals of the State, nobody knows, but that the result will be waited with about the indifference which attended the memorable con flict between the old man and the I bear, or of the Kilkenny cats, seems altogether probable. The Pie-maker jis amply able to fight his own battles | and the Pie-eater of the official clique i don't always know just when he is whipped, so we may expect the blood to How in great rivers before the con flict ceases. " Like Striking an Old Acquaintance." The following letter from one of our citizens who is now literally at the "seat of war" in that beleaguered isle which England wants to add to her acquisitions, ,needs no explanation. Only those who, like Mr. T., have found a stray copy of their home paper in some unexpected place, far from home, can realize the thrill of pleasure which such an experience produces. It is like meeting an old friend where all are strangers, and every line seems to extend a personal greeting. The letter is as follows : HAVANA, Cuba, Jan. 23,1896. BRO. MURPHY : Does the STANDARD circulate through out the civilized world? It seems so to me, for I have just been perusing some of your December issues in this land of cigars. The STANDARD seemed like an old friend to me. There is probably somebody here besides myself, from Thurston county, but my stay is too short for me to look him up. Have you ever experienced the happiness of meet ing a familiar face amid strangers far from homh&r Then you can realize how I felt. If one wants something that will make him more happiness than anything else, let him run scross a home paper 5,000 miles away and amid strangers. ALBERT TOZIKK. _ THE Olympian did insert a very few times an ad. of a Lacrosse company, the real significance of the matter of which was overlooked at the time it was in serted. We desire to inform Mr. Mur phy, however, that a yearly contract was broken by the Olympian in order to "fire it out."— Olympian. Overlooked, was it? Overlooked by the "business manager," overlooked by the compositor, overlooked by the proof-reader, overlooked by the editor, and its utter vileness was only discov ered when an indignant protest came from the public and an intimation of possible consequences should the inde cent, publication continue! It looks very probable, indeed, that a publisher would sign a "yearly contract" for an advertisement, to occupy preferred po sition, and to be set in the same type used for editorial and reading matter, and run in the newJ columns, without an examination of the subject-matter always submitted when the contract is made. The truth, as shown on the face of the returns, is that the Olympian was tempted by an offer of big pay, and like Judas, fell, and the contract was broken and the advertisement " fired out" only when outraged public opinion demanded that it should be done. THAT " SICKLY DEFENSE." —Wonder what the Olympian thinks of the STANDARD'S sickly defense" of Re ceiver Hawkins now? In its zeal to " stand by" the dispenser of land adver tisements to Republican newspapers, itself among tbe number, it did not heeitate to lock horns with the STAND ARD, which expressed the opinion en tertained by every citizen who knows anything about the matter, that Mr. Hawkins was not to blame for any al leged irregularities or faults in the local land service. The Olympian characterized our defense as, " very sickly." The following telegram to the chairman of tbe county committee shows just how " sickly" that defense has been: WASHINGTON, June 29. L. B. FAULKNER: Completely exonerated on all charges Leave Tuesday for Olympia, via the South. EDWARD K. HAWKINS. SEEMS TO KNOW HlM.— The Chehalis Nugget has this to say of the land of fice embroglio in this city: Although Receiver Hawkins of the Olympia land office has gone East to square himself with the department, those who claim to know say that he has the affairs of his office in such chape that he probably will be let out. If Mr. Hawkins is incompetent or dishonest he ought to go, and that quickly. But the work of adding to the decency and re spectability of the Office ought not to stop with the discharge of the receiver. Register Murphy ought on general prin ciples to be fired too. There never was the slightest excuse for giving the office to a man of Murphy's caliber and stamp in the first place. It is gratifying to learn that he stands a pretty good snow just now of being discharged. Toua OF A BRILLIANT ACTRESS.— Cora Urquhart Potter, who has at tained auch a high eminence in the temple of histrionic Fame, will, after a season of Shakspearean drama in New York, beginning on the 2d of March, under the management of Augustine Daly, sail from San Francisco April 30tb, for Australia, where she is under a sixteen weeks' engagement. She will return to this country Nov. 15th, and will then probably play the cir cuit of the Northwestern Theatrical Association and visit Olympia, where she has many admirers and friends. " IT is a darned sight easier to look on than play the fiddle," Bays Manager Murphy. Nery true, sir, but when the public pays to have the fiddle played it expects to hear music and not discord. Because it can not play is the very rea son it pays to "look on" and listen.— Olympian. Exactly! But it isn't just the proper thing lor those to squeal who have not put up a cent for either cat gut or rosin. STACY W. GIBBS, of Tacoma, is engi neering a case through the Supreme Court to-day.— Olympian. Our esteemed contemporary seems to regard the Supreme Court as a sort of big machine that is controlled by brake and throttle. WOLCOTT PREMATURE AT LEAST THAT IS THE OPINION OF OUR CORRESPONDENT. He Think* Congressmen t.nvc the Silver Conference the "Cold Shoulder"—Col. Clarke, of Ala bama, liters Sentiments Which Have the True Ring—Etc, From Our Regular Correspondent. Washington, Jan. 24th, 18%. It remained for Senator Wolcott to strike the first discordant note heard in Congress in connection with Presi dent Cleveland's Monroe doctrine message, and the appointment of the Venezuelan Boundary Commission, which he declared to be a menace rather than a guarantee of peace. That Mr. Wolcott is a brilliant orator is conceded by all, but that lie is too shallow ever to become a statesman was well known before lie delivered that speech attacking Secretary Olney, President Cleveland and the Monroe doctrine. Oratory is a gift, while statesmanship can only be acquired by deep study and long experience, with more than the average allowance of brains to start with. Had Senator Wolcott confined his remarks to op posing the Monroe doctrine resolution this week reported to the Senate by the Committee on Foreign Relations he would have heen in good company, as many of the strongest friends of the Monroe doctrine consider that resolu tion ill-timed and badly worded, but when he tried to jump upon the ad ministration for its action in patriotic ally upholding the Monroe doctrine, and upon the doctrine itself, he found himself alone. Although there are lots of strong silver men among the Democratic members of the House and Senate, with the exception of Representative Bell, of Colo., who is more of a Pupulist than a Democrat, not one of them took part in the silver conference held in Washington this week, for the purpose of making arrangements for holding a national silver convention to nominate a Presidential ticket. All the silver Democrats were invited to participate in this conference, but regarding it as merely a tail to the Populist kite they declined doing so. In fact nearly all the members of Congress, even the Populists, seem to have turned the cold shoulder to the silver conference, which was composed of nearly the same men who at the last silver con ference nominated Sibley, of Pa., for President. Col. J. C. Clarke, of Ala., president of the Mobile and Ohio Railroad, is ex pressing some very robust political opinions around Washington just now. For instance, he says: "The only chance the Democracy has to win is to put forth a plank in the National plat form declaring for silver in un mistakable terms. No straddles or equivocal language will be accepted by the people. They have been fed on that sort of stuff long enough. There are 157 electoral votes in the South ern States that can be carried on a straight silver platform—one that says what it moan# and means what it says —but they cannot be had for a gold standard candidate on a single stand ard platform. The people are hungry for a real, live issue and they ought to have the chance of being recorded on this one. If the Democrats throw away this opportunity another sucjr may not come for many years." Tim Campbell, who for a considerable period represented one of the New York city districts in the House, and who, when he failed to secure the Tammany nomination, ran as an independent Democrat and was defeat ed by Henry Miner, the Tammany candidate, has been turned down by one of the home Election Committees. He contested Miner's seat, but the committee decided against him. Tim says he'll try again. Personally Tim is very popular in Washington. He originated the expression," What's the Constitution between friends," which was jocularly quoted by Benator Hill the other day. The departure of Miss Clara Barton, president of the Red Cross Society, for Armenia, and the reporting of a reso lution expressing sympathy for the Armenians and calling upon the European powers to give the protec tion guaranteed them by treaty, to the Senate, brought that matter quite preminently to the front this week. Although Secretary Olney does not be lieve that the Sultan of Turkey will allow Miss Barton to enter Armenia for the purpose of distributing money contributed by onr people for the destitude Armenians, after his recent order against it, he has instructed Mr. Terrell, our minister to Turkey, to aid Miss Barton in every way that be can. Secretary Olney has furnished Con gress with all the information in his possession concerning the Cuban revolution. The hot heads in Con gress are still advocating immediate recognition of Cuban belligerency, but the conservatives who counsel modera tion for a while longer, are still hold ing back. Speech making is the principal in dustry of the Senate just new, while the House is railroading appropriation bills, so as to be ready for an early adjournment. DEM. OUR FROST-BITTEN CO-LABORER STILL GROWLlNG— Notwithstanding an ex cellent reason was given for the low temperature in the theater at the Effie Ellsler engagement last week (and which was, by the way, not near so low as the Olympian represents) in the late arrival of the company when all the doors had to stand open long enough to take in the several tons of of " properties," that journal still insists that " People care very little what causes the cold, when they pay their money for comfort; and they expect to have it." The writer's ex perience with the people has led him to believe that they are reasonable, and very few are so cranky as to blame anybody for anything which caunot be helped. The age of miracles—such f'rinstance as throwing six "sixes" with five dice—has passed, Brother Scobey, and you should not expect such utter impossibilities or induce others to do so. -« EX-TREASURER Boggs, of Tacoiua, offers to " tell all be knows," if it will secure him immuuily from punish ment for his official piisdeeds. PRESIDENT Cleveland has resumed his avocation of shooting ducks in the Virginia wildwoods. W. C. T. u. SELECTIONS. CONDUCTED BY KMKI.INE STEWART. Elizabeth Cndy Stanton's Birthday Celebration. Nov. 12,1M5: Nov. 12,1896. Continued. When Mrs. Stanton was introduced the audience rose and cheering gave the Chautauqa salute. In rt clear, audible voice Mrs. Stanton said : " I thank you all very much for the trib ute of love, respect and gratitude which have been sent in telegrams aud letters and expressed in this great audience. As I am not able to stand very long I have invited Miss Helen Potter to read what I have to say to you." The paper was then read by Miss Potter, the well-known elocu tionist, who has impersonated Mrs. Stanton in some of her telling speeches all over the country. A few quotations from the address of Mrs. Stanton: "In response to the many letters and telegrams I have received from the Old World and the New, I would say to one and all that in demanding justice and equality for all women I have secured larger liberties for my self. lam well aware that these pub lic demonstrations throughout the country to-night to celebrate my birth day are not so much tributes to me as an individual, as to the great idea we represent—the enfranchisement of women. " The majority of women have ridi culed the idea of political rights for themselves; the press have circulated, the pulpit denounced, but above this wave of clamor arose the clarion voice of Phillips; "This is the inauguration of the most momentous reform yet launched upon the world, the protest against the injustice that has brooded for ages over the character and des tiny of one-balf the human family. Soon conventions were held in half a dozen States, letters of sympathy came from women in this country, from Italy, France and Germany." Woman's sphere: "In halting one day I found an old document, said to have been written at the dawn of cre ation, when the Gods were in consul tation about the creation of man. They said: ' Let us make man in our own image, male and female, and give them dominion over the whole earth, and every living thing therein.' They did so. Here we have the first title deed to this green earth, given alike to man and woman, and the first hint of God's intentions. Those who will make some logical concessions must admit that wherever woman has been and maintained a foothold, and what ever she has done and done well, it must have been the ' Creator's inten tions' that she should occupy that po sition and do that special work. Un less you admit this, you impeach the wisdom of the Creator and exalt the woman as able to set at defiance the laws of her being. While everything in the Universe moves according to immutable law, the sun, the moon, the stars and every planet revolving in its own elliptic, the fish of the sea, the birds of the air all in their appointed places, moving together in harmony, how can woman get out of her sphere? The moment you declare she is, you make her all-powerful, greater than her Maker. To do this she must defy the laws of attraction, cohesion and gravitation, the centripetal and cen trifugal forces, the positive and nega tive electricity, to be scattered into apace herself and be seen no more for ever. Instead of this fatal escapade, she is here; tied to this planet just as man is. He is happy and contented and always stays in his sphere and nobody writes or talkaabout it. . . Every day he has some new surprise for us and new promises of the future, when we are to make the journey of life by electricity, when all our pres ent modes of locomotion, even the bi cycle, will be thrown in the shade. He will make life like a sweet dream, the realisation of a fairy land. Thus we see woman need no longer knit or weave, make butter or cheese. Cun ning arms and fingers of steel noasdo it all for her. Women need no longer cook or wash, or iron,or brew, for men do it all in restaurants, laundries, bak eries and breweries. Women need no longer sew, for with cunning ma chines men now make underclothes for women and children, and even the man-milliner bonnets, and the tailor, made dresses are superior to what wo men themselves can produce. Now I suppose women all over the house are saying," Where do we come in? If man fills all space, where is our sphere?" Why it is plain to every ra tional mind that if man is everywhere and women must of necessity remain on the planet, then their sphere is the same. They are and ever must be in dissolubly bound together, as mother, father, husband, wife, brother, sister, in childhood, in marriage, in all life's struggles, ever sharing each other's joys and sorrows. With tears of affec tion and immortal wreaths they per form the last sad offices of love and friendship for each other, and in the bosom of mother earth, side by side, they rest at last together. Yes, the sphere of man and woman are the same, with different duties according to the capacity of the individual. Woman, like all created things, lives, moves, and has her being obedient to law, exploring with man the mysteries of the universe and speculating on the glories of the hereafter. In the words of Tennyson they must be together. "Everywhere. „. Two head* in council, two beaide the hearth, Two In the tanaled buaineaa of the world, Two in the liberal office* of life. Two plummcta dropped for one, to sound the abyss Ot science and the secrets of the mind." The question is no longer the sphere of a whole sex but of each individual. Women are cow in the trades and professions everywhere in the world of work. They have shown their capac ity as students in the sciences, their skill as mariners before the mast, their courage as rescuers in life-boats. They are close on the heels of men in the arts, sciences and literature, in their knowledge and understanding of the vital questions of Hie hour, and in the every day practical duties of life. Like man, woman's sphere is in the whole universe of matter and mind, to do whatever she can, and thus prove the intentions of the Creator. Another thought I would empha size is the next step in progress we should take in our march to complete emancipation. We who have made our demands on the State have nearly -finished this battle. The principle is practically conceded. We now have full suffrage in Colorado, Wyoming and Utah; municipal suffrage in the great State of Kansas, and school suf frage in half the States of the Union.

Special Correspondence of the STAMDABO. Very few people who go through the old Armory on the Mall, the present headquarters of the Fish Com mission, and visit the grottos in which are arrauged tanks filled with fresh and salt water life, appreciate the magnitude or importance of the work carried on by the Commission. Dur* ing the last fiscal year there were dis tributed from the twenty ojr more hatching stations throughout the coun try 029,247,852 fish eggs, fry and adults. By " fry" is meant young fishes ; a few weeks old, some five hundred millions being of this class. The varieties range as follows, in order of number distributed: pike, perch, white fish, lobster, shad, cod, herring, lake trout, and cat fish. The various hatcheries are specially fitted for the propagation of the different varieties: thus at Gloucester and Woods Holl, Mass., they hatch cod, at the two Maryland stations and at the Washington sta tion, shad, at the Northville, Michigan, station, the various varieties of trout, and at Alpina, Michigan, whitefish. At the Colorado, California and Oregon stations they give their attention especially to raising trout and salmon. The prospects are that the " crop" for tho present year will exceed one billion. The eggs after having been extracted from the fishes and fertilized are given the treatment required for the various varieties for hatching. Shad and white fisli eggs are placed in deep glass jars and agitated by a stream of water introduced at the bottom of the mass by means of a glass tube and rubber hose. With this treatment the shad eggs will hatch in a week, while the white fish eggs require a period of nearly six months. Salmon eggs require different treatment; they must be placed in layers on shallow trays and placed just beneath the surface of a flowing stream of water so as to be subject to a gentle current. Lobsters should be set at liberty soon after hatching, or they will began devour ing one other, and in a few weeks there will be in the tank a few big fat fellows instead of a hundred little ones. The propagation and distribution of fishes, however, forms but one branch of the work done by the Commission. The scientific branch studies the various island waters and tbe ocean for new varieties to be introduced, and the statistical bureau gathers informa tion as tocdmmercial features, such as number of fish caught, prices received, number of men and ships, and amount of capital employed, etc. The Fiitli Commission owns two steam ships, the Fishhawk, and the Albatross, and one sailing vessel, the Grampus. These are especially fitted out for studying fish iife, and for carrying on the work of the Commis sion. The Albatross is equipped with the most scientific apparatus for deep sea soundings, and for studying marine life and conditions of temperature at great depths. At present the Fish hawk is in the Appalschee bay on the coast of Florida studying and survey ing the oyster beds. During the sum mer it, with the Grampus, sailed along the Atlantic coast following the schools of mackerel, in order to learn some thing of the mysterious life history of this important fish. After the mackeral season was over the Grampus went to the New Foundland banks for cargo of live codfish which it conveyed to Wood's Holl, Mass. There the eggs were expelled by compression, as is done in securing eggs of all kin d of fishes, and hatched. During the year some sixty millions of young cod were distributed, chiefly from this station. The Albatross, after a season along the coast of Alaska, is now fitting up at San Francisco, for a " campaign" in the vicinity of the Santa Barbara islands, west of the southern part of California. For the purpose of distributing fish, the Commission owns four railroad cars all fitted up with tanks, air pumps, and living quarters for their crews. These cars go about from station to station and convey the cans of small fisb to convenient distributing points from which the cans are shipped by express. To keep the fisb alive while in the car fresh air is forced into the water by means of tbe pump. The car can usually convey tbe fish to with in twenty-four hours travel of their designation, and the consignee is notified as to the precise time at which his can of fish will be expressed to him. Some varieties are kept in large tanks on the cars until put in the ten gallon milk cans for distributing. The Fish Commission has nothing for sale. Everything is given away; the party securing the fisb, paying the cost of the can, unless he is able to return the same, and the expressage from the station or the distributing ear to its destination. When a request comes in for fisb, the applicant is furnished a blank to fill out, giving 10- 1 cation of stream, lake, or pond, for which the fish are wanted, character of its beds, etc., and the number of fish asked for. This is endorsed by a mem ber of Congress, and, if satisfactory, the party's is notified that his applica tion hss been entered, and that he will be informed at the proper time as to when the order will be filled. WHEN the STANDARD suggested that just criticism of the plays at the thea ter would be welcome, it did uot mean to invite captious fault-finding of the local management, as that journal as sumes. We do not know as we care any more for the latter than the ox did for the fly on his horn, and we note the fact that tbe Olympian is " wormy" merely to show bow utterly incapable some minds are of grasping a line of duty that coincides with dignified journalism. IT seems tbat the U. S. Supreme Court has not confirmed Judge Han ford's claim to primary jurisdiction in the Northern Pacific Railroad receiver ship, and it has "handed down" a de cision which reinstates Judge Jenkins' control of the matter. This will re sult in the transfer of management from Burleigh to the Receivers ap pointed by the Wisconsin court. SENATOR Squire has written to ex- Collector Watson that work will be gin on proposed fortifications near Port Townsend, within four months, and that 150,000 to make the com mencement are now available. IT is said that England lays claim to about 3,000,000 acres which our Government lias always regarded as being included in the Alaska purchase.
