The work for protection of the Nes qually bridge, undertaken by Savage & Schofield under contract with Pierce and Thurston counties, has been completed. The name of the station hereto known as " Maxtield," on the N. P. R. R. loop to Tacoma, in this county, has been changed to Sherlock, the name of the postofßce at that place. " Plato," the manager of one of the best conducted bill-posters plants on the Coast, with his headquarters iu San Francisco, is on a visit to the Sound, and spent Monday in this city. J. L. Cook, the sign painter, who has been a resident of this city for a quarter of a century, will leave Sunday for San Francisco, when he has already been assured of steady employment at his trade. At a department meeting of the Olympia fire companies, last night, Geo. S. Allen was recommended to the City Council as the choice of the department lor the position of Chief Engineer, and Wm. H. White was en dorsed for Teamster. While Nick Owings was " orating" on gold in this city Saturday night, Charley Ayer was makiug a speech on silver in Shelton, at the same hour. We thought there was some myster ious influence at work to keep the earth in its orbit while this great strain was on. W. T. McDonald left Monday for Spokane, where he expects to reside, for a lime at least, for the manage ment of Trail townsite property. Mack says that he does not wish it understood that he has left Olympia "for good"; that he proposes to re turn here to live soon—as the capitol is built.

Dr. Riley went out last even ing to render surgical aid. The STANDARD inadvertantly omit ted to refer last week to the visit of Rev. John R. Thompson, of the Pres byterian church to his former charge in this city. He filled the pulpit on Sunday the 3d, murning and evening, and a large attendance attested the high feeling of esteem he commands in the community.

Moulton, and O. to Tipton, lowa. The Olympian says that the " sneak ing abomination" who stole the tisli from the city pond is just such a " vile reptile" as would " steal ttie coppers from the eyes of their de ceased relatives or cheat a lame dog out of a meal." Our contemporary must have been thinking of a copper head when it emblazoned that idea upon the popular mind. The casiiga tion is deserved, however, and it is sincerely hoped the " sneaking abomi nation" will imitate Judas. Mr. IN ■reival announces the follow ing relative to rates for the State meeting of Masons, to be held at Se attle June lid lo 14ih: One and one tifth fare for the round-trip, on the certificate plan, lias been authorized from all stations on the (Ireat North ern Railway in Washington. The Oregon Railway and Navigation com pany have arranged to give delegates in Eastern Washington, on their line, a one and one-fifth fare for this occa sion. Tickets to be sold via Spokane and Great Northern to Seattle. Dr. Newell reports that an infant child of Andrew Miller, Chambers lake, had the bones of the forearm fractured by accident while in lier mothers arms at Mr. Patnude's resi lience in this city. Also that Miss Avis Olston at Delphi, who received a severe wound witli an ax, while splitting wood, severing the tendons and cutting through the hand-bond of the forefinger, is recovering from the injury, but will never have tlieoriginal strength. Also that the three-year old boy of Mr. Curtiu, Eastside, who had the fingers of his left hand badly lacerated 011 Sunday last, by being caught in the chain of a bicycle while revolving, is doing well. Some "Smart Aleck" Wednesday night " fished" all the trout out of the plaza lakelet. It is not to he supposed that the act was done for profit or from an inordinate appetite for " brain food," or the sportsman's peculiar pen chant for angling, but simply under the same unaccountable impulse that prompts " boys" to change business signs, carry off gates and perpetrate other senseless acts of vandalism. The The loss of the trout, however, is a public one, for they had become de cided pets, and would swim to the border of the lake whenever food was thrown to them. There were about thirty of the speckled beauties, aver aging ten or twelve inches in length, and as but two remain, the proficiency of the nocturnal angler is amply shown. Jim Radcliffe proposes to open in this city, in connection with his auc tion business, an agency for the col lection of bad debts, in which some hitherto unheard-of devices in this " neck of the woods" will be employed to make the delinquent debtor dig up. He will wear a steeple-crowned hat, somewhat after the style of the chimney-sweeps' tile, on which his occupation as bill-collector will be set fourth in large plain letters. This will be worn during business hours, and when the ample corporosity of that individual, thus decorated, as sumes a station on the doorstep of a creditor with the prospect of remain ing for hours, the disposition to "dig up" will be overpowering. The only thing needed in the prosecution of this business is "cheek," and it is very generally admitted that Jim is liber ally endowed in that respect. Weekly Cray Bulletin. The Weather Bureau at Seattle re ports for the week ending on the 11th inst., a slight improvement in the conditions of the previous report There has been very little sunshine, and in addition to the general cloudiness there has been frequent heavy showers, and the temperature has been considerably lower than the normal. As a consequence, the growth of crops has not been rapid, and farm work has been much hindered by the cold, wet weather, and muddy soil. The roads are heavy, and on the low lands nearly impassable. Farmers whose seeding was not finished, have had no opportunity to complete it. Spring sown grain is ltecoming quite green, and the fall sown grain, that escaped freezing out, is looking fine. Although not growing fast, wheat is probably taking deep root, so that it will be well prepared to stand dry weather later on. In the northwestern counties seeding will be finished in another week. As soon as the weather turns fair potato planting will become general. As a whole, the week has been an unfavorable one and fanners are longing for pleasanter and more sea sonable weather. In the Western section of the State it rained the greater part of the time during the week, and the one day without rain was cloudy. Absence of sunhine is having an unfavorable effect upon vegetation, retarding its growth, and, in some instances, turning the grain yellow. Pears, plums, prunes and cherries have been much injured by the cold rains; apples, which are later in blooming, appear all right yet. In Eastern Washington the precipi tation of the week was above the normal. Quite a fall of snow occurred on night of Bth and morning of 9th in in Lincoln, Adams, Douglas, Spokane and Whitman counties, ranging in depth, from 2 to 4 inches. Further south it melted as it fell. Echoing marriage Bells. Married, at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Henry C. Myers, in Missoula, Mont., on Wednesday, May 13th, Mr. Charles E. Hartman and Miss Etta May Venen. The contracting parties are too well known in the capital city to need more than brief mention. The bride, daughter of Prof. L. P. Venen, was born in Olympia, and grew to young womanhood in our midst, the favorite and beloved of all who knew her. The bridegroom, son of Mr. George Hartman, late of thie place, has lived here long enough to gain the esteem of a large circle of friends and business men. The newly wedded pair will reside in Missoula, and while Olympia has lost two estimable young people, a distant city has gained a new home and domestic shrine. " One by one the roses fall," but in so doing their fragrance is only the more effectually scattered abroad or exhaled to the courts of heaven. Prevailing Sentiment. ED. STANDARD: I rea.i with a keen relish of pleasure, your comments in the last issue of the STANDARD, relative to the Capital Com mis-ion, which you pointedly and justly introduce under the caption. "On a High Horse." While having been a non-resident of Olympia for about four years, I still 1 have a deathless love for the old town of my adoption, and I shall ever cher -1 ish it as the city of all others in the State of Washington the dearest to my heart. Now it is beginning to strike me that the various, from time to time re- J ports sent adrift concerning the do ' ings of the Capitol Commi-sion are : getting marvelouslv like the reports j that used to he given wing concern | ing that dead and buried affair the completion through this section of j the I'nion Pacilic railroad. Ever and ! anon, as poets say, we used to hear that work was to he resumed upon that road and that it would he speed ily completed through our long suffer ing and expectant city. Bui every body knows that to-day that road is as we have intimated, dead and buried, while the grass is growing green over its grave. Will it be thus in the outcome of our Capitol Commission and their work? Now a commission created by the majesty of a State Legislature is sup posed to be for the good of the people. Its action should he as publicly known as tiie doings of the body of men who gave it being. A commission appointed by the commonwealth for the purpose of serving that commonwealth is not a secret society. It should he as open to the people as a court of justice; its stated meetings should he as free to listeners as the sessions of our City Council; newspaper reporters should have as free access to the business transacted as they have to the doings of any other public affair involving a public interest. But quite contrary lias been the course pursued by the inflated members of this commission. Verily, it is as true now as ever that " Man, proud man, Clothed In a little brief authority, l'laya auch fantastic tricks before histh heaven As make the angi-lB weep." Why is it that the members should affect a lofty silence and he as speech less as clams when approached by anybody, especially the publisher of a newspaper devoted to the best inter ests of the public? Why should the humblest citizen be cut short by curt answers implying but one sentiment, ("None of your business, sir!" Well, I suppose we could endure a little longer the inexplicable and un utterable delay of the commissioners if it were not for their insolence to those asking candid questions. One remark of youts should go on record for future reference, Mr. Editor, namely: " Mr. Rice seemed to consider the question impertinent, for lie at once declared that he had 110 statement to make, and that he did not care what people thought of him for saying so." A pretty answer, indeed, for a pub lic servant to make when respectfully asked to for a report of progress in bis work. Now a man is taking a desperate step when he says he does not care what the people tliiuk.of him. Why, Mr. Editor, I once knew a man who said he did not care what people thought of him ; hut poor fel low! he little dreamed that we all knew him to be a high-toned bilk, bankrupt in everything except vanity, and a poorly finished as at that! But thanks to the grace of public franchise we have the Capital City, and our own beloved Olympia will remain the cap ital of Washington as long as Mount Rainier remains the handiwork of God. Capitol building or no Capitol building, the wisdom of the Stale must assemble here to make our laws and they will be the guests of our people all the same. Old Glory will continue to wave from our spires and house tops; our national emblem bird will continue to scream and the burden of his song will be " Olympia, Olympia, the beautiful!" AN OLD TIMER. Church Culling. Some of the church members inter ested state that there is a project on foot, or the suggestion has been made to consolidate under one congregation and head, the First Presbyterian church of this city and the Congrega tional church, and that one clergyman may be employed to preside as pastor. The present stringency of the times and an attempt to economize the means at their disposal are said to be the main incentives to this move ment. The church government of the two denominations mentioned aro es sentially the same, and only in a few things do they appear to difTer in doc trinal or gospel principles. To evangelize the world is, of course, the professed object and mission of all churches and all religious teachers outside of the church. Counting both the Roman Catholic and Protestant churches, Olympia has about a full complement of all the leading religious denominations of the age. To support in a becoming way all these church societies is, of couree, an onerous tax upon their respective membership, and we are inclined to believe that there is a good deal of wisdom in the proposition to which we have alluded. According to the way that religion is now practiced and the manner in which the claims of the gospel are presented to the peo ple, it takes money to run the churches. It has become an axiom that preachers, like teachers, are a poorly paid class of people; a fact not so strange when it is remembered that the majority of church members and religiously incliued people are not noted for being a wealthy class. There is not a church edifice in Olympia that would not hold twice or thrice the people who generally attend its appointed services every Sabbath, and we see no reason why the Presby terian and Congregational churches should persist in struggling along singly, sorely taxing their decimated membership when all could be com fortably assembled in either one of their edifices to be presided over by a single minister in charge. The advantages of such an arrange ment would simply be two to one over the present existing state of affairs. Retrenchment is going on in similar callings and it might reasonably be practiced by all of our religious bod ies and often times with good results. The stated pastor of the Congrega tiohal church has already severed his connection with that body and we understand that the pastor of the First Presbyterian church is now in California where he is soon to be joined by bis family. Wlull's In u >unic f The christening of the new schooner now being fitted out at the foot of Second street, has something more significant in it than mere cir- cunislance. "Atalanta" the name given to the little craft, was the fabled daughter of lastts, of Arcadia or B<e- otia. She was, of course, passing fair, and said to be the swiftest of foot among mortals, even outstripping the Centaurs in the Grecian races. She participated in the famous Caledonian hunt, and was conspicuous in the Pe lian games. Hie had many suitors, but before she would listen to any of their propositions looking to marriage she compelled them to run a race with her 011 condition that whoever outran should wed her, but if she vanquished him, be paid the penally with bis life. After many lovers had contended with her only to lose their lives by a dart she carried in her hand, one young man, Hippomeues by name, consented to strive with her upon the fearful conditions. Now " Hippo" had secretly obtained three golden apples from Venus and that goddess instructed him to throw these golden apples as they ran. This de vice he deftly carried out, and Ata lanta, stopping to pick up the apples as they were successively thrown he fore her, was so detained upon the race course that she lost the contest, her lover coming out far ahead. It is fur ther related, however, that the lovers became so impatient to consummate their nuptials that they entered the temple of Cybele, and the goddess was so ollended at their impiety that she changed them into lions. Let us hope that tins mythical history may not he indicative of the fate of the owners of the Atalanta, who have been as devout lovers as ever princess slew by dart, nor may any of their number he turned into raging lions after they have achieved the objects of their voy age into the frozen regions of the northland. A HANDSOME TESTIMONIAL. —The State of New Jersey when it compli ments one of its citizens evidently be lieves in doing the act well, as is shown by the engrossed copy of the preample and resolutions lately adopt ed by the Legislature of that State in recognition of the services of Gov. W. A. Newtll, as originator and founder of the U. S. Life Saving system for the preservation of life and property from shipwreck. The testimonial is a work of art, in the form of an album, with several beautifully engraved pages, executed by Ames it Rollinson, art engravers, of New York. Each page is of different desigu and style of letter, and the title page contains an elaborate engraving representing a shipwreck o(T shore, with human be ing clinging to the masts and shrouds and the life-savers busy rescuing them from their peril. The lining of the testimonial is in royal purple and the binding flexible Russia leather, and the offering was accompanied by a cor dial letter of congratulation from Gov. Griggs, now executive of that State. BRUIN DON'T UNDERSTAND " BIKES." —As Mrs. George Blankenship was on her way to " the ranch" at Mud Bay a few days ago, riding a bicycle, she discovered a large black bear ucar the roadside, evidently engaged in eating something. The intrepid woman dis mounted from her wheel and ap proached his bearship for investiga tion as to whether his repast might not be honey, in which case she in tended to assert her right to a share in the find. It is quite probable that it was the determined manner of the fair Amizonian, or it might have been the novel manner in which she rolled into view the bear retreated preccpi lately into the timber. It was then discovered that he was engaged in de molishing an ant-lnll, and eating the inhabitants as they valliantly en deavored to defend their home. WILL RETURN SOMETIME —Mr. F. C. Brown, of the firm of Brown & Ferris, the clothiers who did a clothing busi ness in Odd Fellows Temple, sev eral years ago, is now a resident of Traverse, Mich. He writes under date of the Blh inst: " I left Chicago, where I have been residing since April Ist, and am now engaged in the rail road lie and tan-bark business in this place, buying principally for the Chicago and Milwaukee markets. Although I have been away from Olympia nearly three years, I have by no means lost my interest in the place or her people. Every copy of your paper contains items of interest to me, and I hope some day to be out there again." The minstrels. Richard Ji Pringle's Georgia Min strels drew another crowded house at the Third Avenue Theater last night. Billy Kersands is a whole show to himself, and he is aided by such men as Eugene Hillman, Bob Kent, Neil Moore, James Moore, Joseph Jalvan, etc. In the olio, the specialists, headed by Marsh Craig, the contortionist, and Jalvan, the Oriental wonder worker, are all good. The afterpiece, " Lucy's Lawn Party" is full of fun and laughter. —Post Intelligencer, May 12. This company will appear at Olym pia Theater, Friday night, the 22d, inst. Band Cancers.

Words of Praise from a New York Lady for AYER'S^PILLS " I would like to add my testimony to that of others who have used Ayer's Pills, and to say that I have taken them for many years, and always derived the best results from their use. For stom ach and liver troubles, and for the euro of headache caused by these derange ments, Ayer's Pills cannot lie equaled. When my friends ask me what is the best remedy for disorders of the stom aeli, liver, or bowels, my invariable answer is, Ayer's Pills. Taken in sea son, they will break up a cold, prevent la grippe, cheek fever, and regulate the digestive organs. They are easy to take, and are, indeed, the best all-round family medicine I have ever known."— Mrs. MAY JOHNSON, JUS Itider Avenue, New York City. AYER'S PILLS Highest Honors at World's Fair. Ayer's Ssrsaparilla Cures all Blood Oisorders. STATE NEWS. A town lot has been given for a new church at Kelso, aud the building will be put up this summer. No trace has yet been found of the body of A. M. S. Hilgard, who, it is supposed, recently committed suicide iu Spokane. R. F. Jordan, of Wullula, put out poison for squirrels, and let lus hogs run in the same held. They ale the poisoned wheat aud 52 died. At Tacoma Judge I'arker lias sen tenced A. L. Davis, for housebreaking, to 18 months, aud Louis Kluekow, who shot Alfred Conrad, to two years in the penitentiary. The fine residence of 11. C. Wells, at New Whatcom, burued last Friday. It cost several thousands iu boom times, but was carrying only $2,000 insurance. The furniture wus saved. Matthew Seattle, aged 21, son of Chief John Seattle, a puyallup Indian, died on the Muckleshoot reservation. Seattle was a particularly bright young man, and was something of a platform orator. Large quantities of potatoes are go ing to waste again this spring iu Kittitas for the want of a market, says the Ellensburg Localizer. Transporta tion is too high to leave any profit for the producer. A woman, who said her name was Grace Ormsby Friakhorn, flailing from Portland, committed suicide iu Sedro, Skagit county, by taking poison last Sunday night, from tlie effects of which she died the next day. It is said she was well-connected in Port land. The remains of 28 soldiers, who were buried on the military reservation at Port Townsend, were Saturday shipped front that place toßeniciu, Cal., where they will be buried in the national cemetery. Some of the bodies had been buried 35 years, and only their bones were got together for shipmeut. Aaron Fry, of Muses Coulee, was found dead in his bed by the com panion who was sleeping with bint last week. The night before Fry retired apparently in good health, and his death was not discovered until his companion tried to awake him the uext morning. Heart disease was the cause. Frank Middleton was instantly killed Saturday at Chiwaukum, a lum bering camp on the Great Northern, 11 miles west of Levenworth, by being cut in twain witli a circular saw. He was riding on the log carriage, and failed to notice his approach to the saw. He was an old, respected citizen of this section, and leaves a wife and four children. What may prove a case of fratricide occurred at Oakesdale Monday, llarry McKay lies at the point of death from a blow on the head with a stove-hook in the hands of his 15-year-old brother Tom. The brothers quarreled over a horse. Harry, who is 19 years, was knocked senselees by the blow, which fractured his skull, making a hole two inches deep. His chances for recovery are doubtful. Tom expresses no sorrow for his deed. He was arrested. Frank Lafromboy, a halfbreed who made his home on the Barbary coast, just below Pillar Rock, was fished out of Skamokawa creek Friday afternoon. He had been missiug since the 2d inst., when he was staggering about Skumok awa loaded to the chin with bad whisky. It is supposed that in trying to go to his home he fell into the creek from off the wharf. His brother, Joe Lafromboy, was drowned from a whisky scow near Pillar Rock lust summer. P. \V. Watson, a wood-dealer, was instaolly killed at noon Monday, at Seattle, in a runaway. In falling off hia left leg waa caught and torn oil'. His body waa dragged about 100 feet, hia leg being left behind. He died instantly. Several people witnessed the horrible accident. It all happened •o quickly no one could tell precisely what had occurred. When the specta tors reached the mutilated man some believed he waa simply a one-legged man, but a few seconds later his missing leg was found. It had been torn off at the thigh. A libel was filed in the United States district court last Friday by the owners of the steamship Trausit against Captain I.udlow, of the Monterey, claiming damages in the sum of $lO,- 000. The Transit collided with the Monterey while the latter vessel was lying at anchor in Seattle harbor, April 12 last. The Trausit claims that the Monterey was not in a proper anchor age, being too close to the wharves, and consequently was in fault in the collision. The government, April 21 last, libeled the Transit for the same collision, claimiug the Monterey was damaged in the sum of $3,000. ♦O ♦ ♦ o>o> «♦ ❖ ♦ «♦<►♦<► <► * A' ' A A H♦ * ♦♦.♦♦♦ ♦ ♦ <►♦<►:♦ o♦<►♦<► ♦o o ♦ 4«. ♦ ♦ ioc¥ ❖ ♦<►♦<> ♦ o ♦ * (• •) 'J'ELL the reason why ♦t § OT) T Tj O people are coming our ♦ ♦ •) (• way for spring and sum - : | CLOTHING! ** . ♦ * o Men's Good Suits for - $3.75 * J Men's Good Suits for - 4.58 <► ♦ Men's all-wool Suits for - - - - 6.00 * I Men's Suits, others sell at $lB, for - - 10.00 * Never before sold such good suits for the money.

Albert Jansen, a Russian Finlander, came to Seat le a week ago from Sno homish county, and entered the Seat tle general hospital. The attending physicians, a few days ago, discovered that he was a genuine victim of leprosy, He has been on the Sound four years, during which time he has worked in logging camps. The local physicians believe that he came to this country wilii the disease, though he says that he never had any signs of it until two months ago. Parts of his bodv are already perforated and hi 3 hands are rotting away. The county and city oflicials are consulting to-day on the question of where he BIIHII be sent. He will likely be shipped to the leper settlements in British Columbia. Frank Fuller was Monday released from the government penitentiary on McNeil's island, having served a 10 years' sentence for the murder of Bishop Segers, Catholic bishop of Van couver, B. C.,in Alaska,in 1887. Good behavior shortened his sentence. Fuller who was secretary to the bishop, on re lease, talked of the crime for the first time since his arrest. He told a friend that while journeying in the Alaskan wilda, he and the biaohp quarreled over an Indian woman; that it be came a case of the bishop's life or his, and he considered his life as sweet as the bishop's was to him. This is the first light thrown on the mystery of nine years' standing, as no one else was about when Segers was killed. Fuller was convicted on circumstantial evidence. Oakesdale was thrown into a fever of excitement Tuesday by the arrest of Thomas Griffin, a prominent farmer living two miles front that town, on a charge of rape. Griffin isamairied man with several children. The vic tim is Bessie Gunn, a 14-year-old girl. According to the girl's story the as sault occurred on the 29th of April, in Griffin's house, during ttie absence of his wife. She says site was compelled at the point of a revolver to accede to his wishes. She told Mrs. Griffin of the assult. The wife became infuriated and beat her husband with a club. The girl was not allowed to see her parents till Monday. She told her story, and the arrest followed. Griffin was eating when arrested, and seemed surprised. Great excitement prevails, and the feeling against Griffin is very bitter. Mrs. Griffin is prostrated. None But Ayer's at the World's Fair. Ayer's Sarsaparilla enjoys the extra ordinary distinction of having lieen the only blood puritied allowed an exhibit at the World's Fair, Chicago. Manu facturers of other sarsaparillas sought by every means to obtain a showing of their goods, but they were all turned awav un der the application of the rule forbidding the entry of patent medicines and nos trums. The decision of the World's fair authorities is in effect as follows: "Ayer's Sarsaparilla is not a patent medicine. It is here on its merits." " TEN people out of a dozen are in valids," says a recent medical authority. At least eight out of these ten, it is sale to allow, are suffering from some form of blood disease which a persistent use of Ayer's Sarsaparilla would be sure to cure. Then, don't be an invalid.
