111 I II I'i (, « IMI. MIIAI LVKMM;, 2D, ISM. Watchman. Tell Us of the Night And still the question comes to us, ni <v< ry conceivable form, " What of tin- Capitol?" and in reply wccanonly [M.int to pa>t delay for an indication of what the future may have in etore tor us. It it be true that " There is no better way of judging of the future than by the past," there is little foun dation tor even those illusions of hope to rest upon which the immortal pat riot Henry declared transforms us into beasts. The situation, briefly stated, is that there remain about 40,000 acres of the 1:12,000 acre land grant yet to be located, after the elapse of three years of lime in making selections! If it is to constitute the security for a loan of the entire amount used in construction of the capitol, it can very readily be seen that a failure to provide the" col lateral" is a serious, if not insurmount able ditiiculty in securing the loan. This is especially true when we con sider the terms of the act under which the " State capital fund" is to be creat ed. It provides that contracts for ma terial and labor shall be paid in war rants on said fund, derived front sale of lands granted for construction of public buildings at the capital. No provision ts made, however, for pay ment of accrued interest on these war rants, a consideration that is regarded as of primary importance in all desir able monetary transactions. It would have been an easy matter for the legis lature to have made these warrants first-class paper, at about one-half the legal rate of interest, by simply insert ing a provision guaranteeing say three or four per cent., payable semi-annu ally. But friends of the measure seemed to be willing to accept almost anything in the way of compromise to secure affirmative action, and actually allowed their opponents to dictate the terms of the act which finally passed, and of which one of its most hitter op posers declared immediately after the vote, " Olympia is welcome to all the good she can derive from it." There seems to have been no reason why the construction of as important an acquisition as a State capitol should have been placed in a different cate gory from the erection of other public buildings, the cost of which has been paid directly from the pockets of the taxpayers. Olympia, when Thurston was the leading county, was never a niggard in extending aid to all such public works. She never asked for anything more than was accorded at the first from her geographical position, the seat of government, and has been endorsed by decided majorities every time the people of the State have had the privilege of expressing their choice in the matter. Tbe unfriendliness of the Legisla ture as shown by a refusal to infuse into their act the vital essence to give it life, afforded an opportunity for the Do-Nothing Board of Commissioners, headed by Gov. McGraw, to continue their policy of masterly inactivity, thwart the will of the people and rele gate the matter to the masses as a bone of contention, whereby personal ambi tion may be advanced. The only hope that remains of sale of the warrants lies in tbe speedy lo cation of the remainder of the land grant and that the legal rate of inter est which they will bear may compen sate for the failure to provide for its payment at stated intervals. The out look, it must be confessed, is not very bright, but it is the best we can dis cover when tbe cathode ray is turned on to the whole subject. The Silver Lining. Every day seems to add confidence to the belief that tiie silver sentiment which prevails so generally among tbe masses, will find ample expression in tbe Chicago Convention. Controller Eckles, the President's fugleman, who was sent to Illinois to " cap" for the gold standard, has re turned to tbe capital to report that tbe free silver tide is too strong to be stemmed. Indiana and Kentucky, States that have been in doubt, are no longer an unknown factor in the problem, but will send straight silver delegations. Senator Harris esti mates the majority for silver, in the Convention at 200; the Cincinnati Enquirer says it will be nearer 250, and Congressman Bailey, of Texas, who in his contest for Senator on a free-silver platform, has been taking soundings, will not be satisfied with any majority under 275. The most conservative estimates have advanced the figures from 75 to 125. The senti ment in favor of the white metal has gathered force with the same ratio of progression as the McKinley boom, until now there seems to be no ground for the opposition to build upon. One good result of this overwhelm ing sentiment is that tbe action of the convention will be straight and clear cut. There will be no straddle. There will be no ambiguity by which the voter may be deprived of his right of dictation of the policy of the gov ernment. Expressions from national commit teemen, members of Congress, and others in high position, indicate that there will be no bolt at Chicago. The average politician easily adapts himself to circumstances. He is ready to blow hot or cold, as the ne cessities require, and the ground swell has already had the effect of making goldbugs fold their shining wings and prepare to don those of a silvery hue. These men, in a large degree, conserve party policy, and be fore the issue is met will be in a posi lion to sing as loud halleluj ihs as (lie most consistent silver advocate in the land. It is under the seeming probability that au unequivocal financial plank be adopted and a sound silver man nominated at the head of the ticket that has opened the door for support from the Bimetallic League and the Populists, neither of whom would have considered for an instant any half-way measures. With the issue clearly defined and a fair division of the people upon tiie question, there will be no doubt of the result. The Chicago candidate will be elected bv the largest popular majority ever ac corded to any candidate, and our conn try at once restored to the condition of peace and plenty. The unanimity of the two leading parties and the magnanimity of the other parties, is suggestive of the deep interest felt in the issue as presented at this time. The people are fearfully in earnest. Capital has entrenched itself behind the party which has so long been its main support, and the people have selected the saTest and surest means of making their senti ment effective by massing their strength on a platform that can be understood and a candidate who may be trusted to carry it into effect. SUB-MARINE NAVIGATION.—A genius in Baltimore lias, after 17 years of hard labor, invented a sort of boat which will enable the searcher for treasure to explore the bottom of tbe ocean. It is designed to carry a crew of six men, who may remain sub merged forty hours if necessary. The ocean bed is to be illuminated by elec tricity in a radius of 150 feet while the explorers are at work. A model of the proposed boat has met all expectations to the depth of 50 feet, and a much larger one is under construction, by which it is expected that a depth of several hundred feet may be attained. If it is successful, it will open vistas of wealth in the acquisition of lost treasure that will rival all the mines of metal and precious stones the world has ever known. THE BLACK DEATH. —That terriole disease, the " Black Blague," has again made its appearance in Cbiua, and cases have been reported thous ands of miles away, at Yokohama, in Japan, and Singapore, on the Malay peninsula, which gives rise to the fear that the pestilence may gather strength and spread over the earth. This plague made its appearance in the orient centuries ago, when it spread to Europe, Asia and Africa, and those three continents represented for several months one vast charnel house. The old chronicles state that in the city of Cairo, 15,000 victims were added to the death-list in a> single day. In China the disease swept from the earth 13,000,000 victims. India was depopulated, and all of Western Asia was covered with bodies of the dead. THE Thurston county delegation to the Everett Convention showed imbe cility and bad faith to the people who sent them there. They were practi cally instructed for McKinley, and voted against instructions. The County Convention, who made them their agents, endorsed free and unlim ited coinage of silver at a ratio of 16 to 1; they went half way on one vote and one-fourth way on another. They proposed two planks on the finance question, both of which were in viola tion of their instructions, and both of which were sat down upon most promptly, which, to anybody but these eminent statesmen, would be regarded as a humiliating snub. Great is Thurs ton! THE BROOKLYN BRIDGE IS DOOMED. —Civil engineers say that one of the world's modern wonders, the Brooklyn bridge, is doomed. They affirm that the constant vibration from the rush ing train traffic, and the corrosive ef fects of salt water, are fast sapping the life of the bridge. It will not be long before the central suspension span will have to be replaced by some device of the cantilever form. The use of the structure is constantly in creasing, and it will not be long before an enlarged capacity will be a poten tial reason for renewal on some plan that may insure stability as well as the maximum of service. A SALT LAKE preacher by the name of Francis Harmann, is said to rival Durrant in the slaughter of innocent girls. He is charged with the murder of Henrietta Clausen, his house keeper, and Annie Samuelson, who was to have become his wife. The charred bones of at least one of his victims were found in the furnace of tbe church. He had been married three times, and it is said his wives died under suspicious circumstances. Harmann left for Kansas City on the 7th inst., since which time nothing has been heard from him. IN 1893, it is stated, on authority of Thos. L. James, former Postmaster General, McKinley held that "The Republican party would be false to it* principles, and would turn its back upon its record, if it were now to tol erate the idea of free and independent coinage of silver. That is a proposi tion which, if established by law, would bring upon us, in my opinion, evils which we cannot estimate." THE National Prohibition Conven tion, which met in Pittsburg this week, organized alter a turbulent contest be tween the free coinage and goldbug tactions. The silver men carried the day. THE round-trip rate of fare to the National Democratic Convention, which meets in Chicago, July 7tb, from this State, has been fixed at $72.- CO over the Northern Pacific. An Age of Appalling Disasters. The weekly record of loss of life and property by cyclone and Hood con tinues with fearful regularity, and adds to the widespread misery that has at tended business depression. At midnight Saturday, the terrors of Johnstown came near being duplicated in the lowlands between Marshalltown and .State Center, lowa, by a succession of cloud bursts which deluged the country. Many of the slumbering in habitants were informed of their peril, before the waters bad reached their habitations by passengers on a train which barely escaped destruction in the first rush of the Hood. Whether any lives were lost, or not, was un known when the report was made up, but the faithful work of the travelers doubtless saved many a family from death. The storm Monday afternoon origi nated near the town of Ankenv, 95 miles north of Dei Moines, lowa, by the union of two storm-clouds which speedily developed into a cyclone and moved to the northwest, devastating portions of lowa, Illinois, Michigan and Kansas. The towns of Valeria, Santiago, Bondurant and Mingo, north east from Dos Moines, and Ankney, Polk City and Slalur, north from that city, and the villages of Oakwood and Thomas, in Michigan, were badly dam aged or destroyed. The loss of life is reported at 10 in Jasper county, 9 in Polk county, 12 at McGregor and and 5 at Durango, Iowa; 4 at ltockford and 1 at Elgin, 111; 2 at Fort Scott, Kan., and 11 at Thomas, Mich. Thousands of head of cattle were killed and scattered. The loss of human life will be greatly augmented when the estimate includes the many casualties in the pathway of the fear ful destroyer. # lt plowed its way through dense forests, twisting huge trees up by the roots, sent houses and fences into a whirl of Hying debris, tore up a railroad track and deposited it a tangled snarl of twisted iron, and tore the masonry of massive bridges from its foundation and scattered it over the prairies. At Durango, the tornado was attend ed by a rainfall which soon raised the surface of the creek into a plunging torrent, and several families were drowned. Thousands of acres of corn and other crops were destroyed. The loss in Galena, 111., is reported at 1100,000, damages from flood, and in Chicago many basements wero filled from an unprecedented down pour. It is estimated that an inch of water fell there in the space of ten minutes. Wednesday afternoon, about 5 o'clock, tbe most disastrous storm that had ever visited the west, struck St. Louis, Mo., passing over and literally through, that city. Buildings of every description were torn down by the force of the wind. The afternoon had been oppressively hot and towards evening rain began to fall, which in creased in severity until it had devel oped into a fierce thunder 6torm. A little later the wind attained a veloc ity of 80 miles an hour, driving the rain before it. Many buildings were demolished and others set on fire by lightning and electricity from crossed wires. Pandemonium reigued. The fire department responded to 54 calls, the streels were full of panic-stricken people, men were picked up by the wind and hurled against brick walls, horses and carriages were sent flying through the air, and falling wires charged with deadly fluid added to the horrors of the scene. The Republican Convention hall was unroofed, a por tion of the city jail blown down, and several oil tanks blew up, spreading destruction on every hand. The city after the passage of the cyclone was in total darkness the remainder of the night, with the rain falling in torrents. Many large steamers were sunk and Others turned bottom up. The loss of life on the river will aggregate over one thousand. The loss of life in East St. Louis is known to be 350, and these figures will be largely exceeded when the reports are all in. Railroad officials claim that the death-list will exceed 2,000, when the figures are com plete. United press reports state that Wednesday's storm began its work of devastation near Moberly, in Randolph county, Mo. It jumped the Mississippi river into Illinois, and left a long track of desolation before it began its fearful work at St. Louis. It then passed over to Evansville, Ind., and tore a pathway through the heart of that State. JINGOISM.—Prof. William S. Sum mer, head of the Department of Social Science and Political Economy at Yale, is not much of an admirer of the jingoism of the Administration. He says that" men of responsibility can only look upon the Venezuelan message with feelings of mingled shame, contempt and regret. I have never read a document every sentence of which has excited my dissent as an educated man, and my disapproval as a citizen, to such a degree as that State paper. No one has been able to show that our honor, rights or inter ests are at stake anywhere, or are threatened by anybody, and no one believes it, for not a thing has been done to defend them." WK-HAW! WE-HAW!—JOHN H. MC GRAW.—Gov. McGraw has launched his Senatorial boom. He had himself invited to Seattle, his real home, to be present on the momentous occasion. Many people have thought there was a bug under his bonnet, and they have thus " called the turn." Many things that have been incomprehensible are now plain; many moves that seemed to be without motive, can now be traced to the itching produced by that troublesome insect. A Ten-Cent Breakfast. A gentleman who has sampled both quantity and quality, tells the STAND AUI) how it is that rustling caterers, in the larger cities, can spread a good breakfast, lunch, or dinner for ten cents. There are dime-a-mcal restaurants now in San Francisco, Portland, Ta comaand Seattle, and they all teem to have come to stay. The Japanese were the pioneers in the establishment of these cheap eating-houses, but white caterers are now engaged in lucrative business in all the cities we have mentioned. The bill of fare for breakfast, as a rule, consists of oatmeal mush, plain beefsteak, pork or mutton chops, boiled or fried potatoes, tea or coffee with plenty of milk and sugar, white and brown bread and hot rolls with an average article of butter. For lunch, beans are served, with cold meats, bread and butter, tea or coffee. The dinner menu compares favorably with that found in restaurants where twenty-live cents are charged for a meal. Soup, generally vegetable, roast meats of fair quality and Havor, mashed potatoes with nutricious gravy, beans, white, brown or corn bread, tea and coffee, pie and pudding, are set before the eater. A man going to one of these res taurants must provide his own nap kin, and tablecloths are generally dis pensed with, as a matter of strict economy. These are objectionable features when we consider the fact that many people cannot dispense with a napkin, but it may be said of the tables that they may be made a good deal cleaner tban many table-cloths in higher-toned establishments, for they usually present a scrupulously clean, oil-finished surface, in oak or walnut. The absence of napkins and tablecloths is one of the secrets of the success of the business, as tho con stant laundry work necessitated by the use of these imposes a heavy ex pense upon the proprietor of any res taurant or boarding house. And the location must be selected where ex orbitant rents will not cut a deep bole in the margin of profits. Then the carefully selected meats, vegetables, etc., are bought in quantity at the very lowest figures. The beef, of course, is not supposed to be j>orter house steak, but placed side by side with that found upon the tables of middle-class hotels, or in well-to-do families, it would honorably hold its own in every respect. Another secret in the business is, that there is nothing wasted in the kitchen or dining-room. The pro prietor's eye is constantly over every part of his establishment. There is a place and use for everything and everything is in its place and economi cally utilized. When these houses were first opened, their patrons mainly comprised the poorer class of laborers, second or third-class clerks, factory girls, news-boys and telegraph mes sengers. But they are patronized now by a promiscuous multitude of rich and poor, high and low, without any observable restraint on the part of anybody visiting them. While the profits are necessarily small, the pat ronage is large—in many cases over whelming—and here is where the money comes into the tills of the keen-eyed, financiering proprietors. IF it were not an unsupposable case, one would very naturally conclude, trom the riotous proceedings of the Prohibition convention at Pittsburg, that its members bad drawn their in spiration from the same bottle that is accredited to be the mentor of the other parties. SOMETHING is in the wind. Alex. NcLeod, the timber cruiser, has been employed by an Eastern syndicate to secure an option on all the timber land that is offered, and in pursuance of instructions is now contracting for the purchase of all that is in the mar ket. PARUOTS are put to a practical use in Germany. They have been intro duced into the railway stations and trained to call out the name while the train stands there, and thus rave peo ple the trouble of making inquiry. THE Guarantee Loan and Trust Co., of Seattle made an assignment Mon day to Jacob Furth. The failure was caused by guarantees of loans on farm lands. No matter what mining district prospectors return from they have the same advice to give—" Keep away." None Bat Ayer's at Ike World's Pair. Ayer's Sarsaparilla enjoys the extra ordinary distinction of having been the only blood purified allowed an exhibit at the World's Fair, Chicago. Manu facturers of other sarsaparillas sought by every means to obtain a showing of their §oods, but they were all turned awav un er 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." Judge V. D. Lambert, of Walla Walla, narrowly escaped asphyxiation in Seattle the other day, owing to the fact that he failed to turn off a gas jet that he had turned on in place of the electric light that was near the gas jet. He had used the electric light the night before, and, remembering that and noticing that he had made a mis take, searched and found the electric wire and turned on the light. He neglected, however, to turn off the gas, and the only thing that saved his life was an open window near his bed. A new industry has sprung up in Garfield, says tbe Enterprise. Some enterprising boys, knowing that while angleworms are plentiful at this time of year, while later they will be difficult .to find, are making hay while the sun sbinea, by gathering them for fish bait. They fine a market for them with those who expect to take a fishiog trip in the near future. The pri.ee is 50 cents a gallon. Several gallons have been supplied to tbe Spokane &. Palouse trainmen, and also to local fishermen. CLOSING OUT SALE.

Next to Draw-Bridge, West Fourth Street, WASHINGTON NOTES. SENATOR GORMAN PROPOSES A HEROIC REMEDY. The Quay and mcKluley Hobnob- The llaltle Abbey—How the Senate Aids In Destrlbutloti ol Campaign Documents - The Immigration Hurcau l.audrd-Negro Delegates Against ItlcKlnley Democrats Will Be United. From Our Regular Correspondent WASHINGTON, May 22, 189(3 Senator Gorman this week nude good the threat he made some time ago, when he called attention to the fact that there would not be money enough in the Treasury to meet the extravagant appropriations made at this session of Congress, by offering an amendment to the Fortification bill authorizing the issue of $100,000,- 000 in three per cent, certificates of indebtedness. Of course the Republi cans threw up their hands in holy horror at the very idea of such a thing, but none of them offered to join Senator Gorman in trying tocuitail the extravagant appropriations. Senator Quay is going to see Mc- Kinley to dicker for a place in the band wagon, and Speaker lieed is thinkiug unprintable thoughts. The Republican opposition to McKinley has about reached the collapsing point. Those two emiueut Republicans of the House, Walker, of Mass., and Dalzel, of Pa., exchanged this week the complimentary terms of "dema gogue" and "impudent," in a little discussion brought on by the former making a kick against boss rule in the House, which allows speaker Reed to control all legislation in that body. Gen. Fitz Lee, now on his way to Cuba, opened a May festival given by Southern ladies of Washington in aid of the proposed Battle Abbey, to be erected as a monument to the bravery of the Southern soldiers, with a spirited speech endorsing the Battle Abbey idea, and highly eulogistic of I American valor. Gen. Lee is endowed with that mysterious quality which we call personal magnetism to a marked extent. As one of his old soldiers and admirers puts it," I be lieve Fritz Lee would create enthusiasm at a Quaker meeting, if allowed to talk for five minutes." Senator Vilas naturally resents the charge that he secured the adoption of the resolution by the Senate ordering that Secretary Carlisle's recent Chicago financial speech be printed aa a public document by a trick. He states that his action was open and above board in the matter, and that before he asked unanimous consent for the adoption of the resolution he consulted with Senators Cockrell and Teller, as representative silver men of both parties, and they assured him that they had no objections to the speech being printed as a public documeut so as to make it frankable. Praise from your political enemies is often more dangerous and undesirable than censure, but the reference to the Immigration Bureau made by Repre sentative Corliss, of Mich., doesn't be long to that class. He said of this bureau, in a speech made in the House this week : "It stands out as one de partment of the government seeking earnestly and faithfully to execute the laws with reference to immigration, and I want to congratulate my Demo cratic fiiends that they have in this department worthy and efficient men." Ex-Congressman Stump, of Md., is at the head of the Immigration Bureau. The debate on the Immigration bill, which was passed, brought a new orator to the front in the person of Representative Buck, of New Orleans. As A naturalized American citizen— he came to America in 1852, when only if years old he opposed any burdensome restriction on immigra tion. At the close of his speech he was warmly congratulated, by those who agreed with him as well as by those who did not, for having made one of the best speeches of the session, from the stand point of the admirer of finished and eloquent oratory. A movement has been started which Mr. Mark Hanna will do well to watch carefully. Its avowed object is to throw the vote of every negro delegate to the St. Louis convention sgainst McKinley, and to either Reed or Allison. This movement is headed by the notorious Perry Carson, who has for many years bossed the negroes of the city of Washington and who has been a delegate to every Republican National Convention for years past. Carson is an illiterate negro, but when it conies to political trickery and the manipulation of negroes he can give the shrewdest of his white brethren pointers. Mark Hanna may have to buy some of those nigs again. Mr. John Bell Bigger, who has been Clerk of the Virginia House of Del egates for years, and who is always posted on Democratic politics in that Stale, is in Washington. When asked if the Virginia Democrats would bolt if the financial plank of the Chicago convention didn't suit them, ha in stantly replied: "No, sir! Not on your life. Bolting isu't in our line. We will stick to the party, it matters uot what platform is constructed at Chicago. If the financial plank should declare for tin or zinc as a money metal it would be all right with Vir ginia Democrats. Party success with us is paramount to all other consider ations." WEEKLY CROP BULLETIN. The Weather Bureau service sta tion at Seattle has sent out the fol lowing review for tlie week ending on the 20lh inst.: Nearly all reports, from both east and west of the mountains, agree in pronouncing the week by far the best of any yet this season, both as to character of the weather, and its effect upon the growth of crops. The temperature has at last risen very nearly to the normal, and with several days without rain the soil has had some chance to dry out, and planters have been given an opportun ity to finish their work. On low ground, however, it is still very wet, the roads are in bad condition, and there is still much to be done in the way of planting. Among tbe inhabi tants of the river bottoms fears are en tertained of Hoods, as soon as the in creasing warmth shall melt the snow in the mountains. In Skagit county much work has been done upon the dykes, strengthening them. Grasses, such as clover, timothy, and alfalfa, have grown rapidly, and wheat has made the most progress of any week yet this season. Vegetables have at last begun to grow. The strawberry crop is in various stages from blossom ing to ripening. It becomes more and more certain from day to day that fruits, such as plums, pruues, pears and peaches, were very much injured by the protracted cold rains. WESTERN SECTION, Farmers were greatly encouraged by four days of warm, sunny weather, from the 18th to the 22nd, during which vegetation at last took a de cided start, and much farm work was accomplished. The 21st was the warmest day yet this season; it was almost a summer day. On the night of the 22nd and morning of 23d heavy showers occurred, accompanied in some instances by thunder, and cooler weather followed. Advantage was taken of the warm days, and the drying out of the soil, to plant pota toes and other vegetables. As a rule potato planting is now mostly finished. In Clallam county crops have grown nicely and apples are in full bloom. In San Juan and Island counties the week has been a fine one, and or chards are in full bloom ; plums have been killed, but apples look well. In Whatcom county fruit trees have bloomed during the late, cold, rainy weather, are shedding their fruit from want of fertilization. In Snoho mish county higher temperature and sunshine has done much for the farmer. In King county it has en abled farmers to do much toward fin ishing planting. In Kitsap county an improvement is noted in the warmth and sunshine. As a rule, reporters throughout the western section report an improved condition. EASTERN SECTION. There were a few showers during the week, but they were lighter than previously. Wheat has taken quite a start with the advent of suushiue. Many believe that the cold, rainy weather the past few weeks was ben eficial to grain, causing it to stool out stronger, and the roots to reach down deep. In the Yakima country the past week is reported as the best grow ing one of the season. In Klickitat county farmers have been plauting corn. In Douglas county grain has made good growth and it stooling out well. In Adams county it has been splendid growing weather for all crops. Nine reports from Spokane county are all favorable. In Columbia county the warm showers of the past week have been very beneficial to growing crops; grain of all kinds looks fiue. Six reports from Whitman county note improved weather conditions and increased growth in crops; orchards are in full bloom. In Walla Walla county wheat and all vegetation have made good progress. In Garfield county crops seein to be growing ex cellently, and in Asotiu county the days have become warmer, and all kinds of crops have taken a start. HirAm Donner, who had lived alone iu a shack on the upper end of Ameri can lake in Pierce county, for several years, was found dead in bed by two of his neighbors Sunday morning. Notice.
