Smith may be the head of the TK (urlment of Political and S<x-iul Science at the I .."ni versify of Wash ington. but like his prototypes with the many lettered degrees of the Middle-West Athens, he will find but transitory glory in jxising for a moment in the glare of publie notor iety and breasting the eurrent of popular intelligence whieh invariably res]xmds to reason when logic of events is based upon natural law controlling human nature. It is far more probable, if it indeed lie true that there is a noted disin clination for marriage in any com munity, that it is owing to the in creased ability of women to support themselves without entering that state as a matter of convenience, or of making what should be considered a holy relation a purely commercial partnership. Far 1 letter Vie it to lead a life of celibacy than to marry uneongenially or without some prom ise of that affection which makes " Life one long sweet song." Thank heaven, the doors are becoming more and more open for women to claim the right of breathing the pure air of heaven and an equal right to earn a living in any honest, respectable call ing that is open to her brother man! Adaptability applies, of course, to sex, in the distribution of the re sources of life endeavor, and just as much against the one as the other, when all conditions are closely con sidered. If this qualification results in the decrease of that state of dependence hitherto considered the proper condi tion for " founding a home," let us rejoice that it will mitigate in some degree the unhappiness of married life, lessen the work of the divorce courts, and of placing upon the cold world those who have not qualified themselves for making a living by the products of skilled handiwork or educated brains. AN AMAZINO GRAFT. —One would suppose that the good old State of Pennsylvania would In? able to pro tect itself against the outrageous rob bery of John Sanderson, the contrac tor for furnishing the State capitol with certain supplies, for unless they were studded with rubies and dia monds, would seem incapable of such valuations. Just look at a few of the figures, aggregating $5,1)00,000 that were paid this prince of grafters. Desks for heads of departments, $368 each; desks for clerks, $610.20; 83 sofas at $552 each; average charge for clocks, 208 in number, $225.90 each. The painting done by Sander son was billed at $264,000 more than the figures of the lowest competing bidder; mahogany on the walls. SBBO,- 000, which should have been supplied under specification of original con tract for construction of the capitol and was included in its cost. Then the bills for office furniture have been correspondingly abnormal. For " de signed ' furniture the bill was $876,- 066; for 3,054 chairs, $323,666; $545,- 573 for cabinet work (which had cost him but $86,073), and $81,244 for tables (which had cost him but $34,- 074). The matter is under investi gation by a legislative committee now, but the proceeding partakes of the nature of locking the stable door after the. equine has been abstracted. A NEW sky-scraper costing two millions of dollars, in New York city, the criminal courts building, is in danger of collapse. The walls near the subway have settled four inches and the marble work of the interior is cracked in many places. And now the eminent engineers of that city are about as much perplexed over discovery of some plan to check this progress of disintegration as they have been over means of restor ing the East River bridge, which had several months ago swayed several inches from its moorings. MORE FOOD AND LESS RELIOION. — That is the demand of the pupils in St. Paul's Episcopal School, at Gar den City, Long Island. The boys struck" on that proposition and the school is closed. They are backed by their parents, many of whom are prominent people in New York and other cities. SOMEBODY has very truthfully said that it is the " sowing of wild oats" that makes many " grass widows." True, but it is a kind of husbandry that is not to be commended. The Steam Whistle Nuisance. Tucoma ha< vigorously tackled the subject of whistle-blowing which dis turb the slumbers of everybody liv ing on the water-front of that city, at all hours of night as well as day. This nuisance is peeuliarly annoying to visitors, especially those who stop at the leading hotel. the Tacoma. near which about all the switching of the terminal of a transcontinental road is done. It was noted at the Press conven tion. last .Inly, the evening session of which, devoted principally to speeches, was held in the hotel par lors. The constant scream of the locomotive whistles continually in terrupted the s|ieakcrs and occasion ally knocked the nub off of some of the liest [Kiints made. Then, early of mornings, especially when people are taking their " lieauty nap. ' tie- steamlxiats add their half a dozen shrill shrieks, at 15 minute intervals, to the medley of noises that cause human nature to feel ex ceedingly wolfish till after a break fast restores mental and lxxlily eqtii- Mibrium. Portland, a few years ago, i abated the nuisance bv an ordinance I prescribing a single blast for steam jers, five minutes tie fore leaving, lim | iteil to twenty seconds, so as to en j able late sleepers to drop off into a ■ tinal snooze if they felt so inclined. Tacoma has, however, already run j up against a vigorous protest of the owners of the marine whistles. They claim that most of their whistling is done as signals for opening of draw bridges. and it is the neglect of per sons whose business it is to operate the draw whenever a vessel signals a desire to pass through, and the boat men dec lare that they have to wait sometimes hours from this hindrance, and that they very naturally endeav or to accelerate matters by tooting of whistles. It is quite evident that this manner of rebuttal will have some effect, whenever and by who ever the matter is decided. The city will doubtless be powerless in enact ment of any provision that may con flict with the government regulation for the signals preseriliod for steam boat navigation, and it would require some very peculiar legislation, and nice discrimination, to decide just what might be legal or otherwise. The Tacoma Tug and Barge company threatens to go to the War Depart ment for a decision of the question, if the matter is pushed, unless the city gives better service in operation of the bridges. It is quite evident, however, that this meets only a part of the complaint. There seems to lie a prevailing desire of those "boys of older growth" who have whistles, to blow thein, just as it is for the little boy to wear squeaky boots, when they have red tops to them. ELKS REUNION IN PHILADELPHIA WILL BE MAGNIFICENT.— The largest and most picturesque celebration ever held in Philadelphia will proba bly lie the grand demonstration of Elks, on July 18th, a parade that will be the most spectacular feature of the convention and reunion of the order which opens July 16th and con tinues throughout the week. Over 15,000 men, representing every sec tion of the country, will be in line. Each lodge will be represented by a distinct uniform and headed by a band of its own. It is expected that the uniforms will typify the State or city from which the wearers hail, and others will be of the grotesque order, and still others represent some historical idea connected with the origin and progress of the order, or important industries of the country. Prizes will be awarded. Orleans members will attend the convention in a specially equipped and hand somely appointed train, consisting of seven Pullman sleepers carrying 500, including Elks, and their wives and sweethearts. A float in the parade will be provided by New Orleans, booming the Exposition to be held in that city in 1915. A HORRIBLE TRAOEDV AT TACOMA. —Sid Dundas, a well-known saloon keeper in Tacoma, was shot and probably fatally injured, by F. W. Jones, of the same city, Wednesday night. It seems that Jones had fam ily troubles, which he had been dis cussing in Dundas' saloon until the subject had become threadbare to both owner and patrons, and he finally ordered Jones out of the saloon. In the altercation that ensued, Jones drew a pistol and shot Dundas. He then ran into the street, apparently crazed by excitement, shooting at others, and finally stopping in the middle of the street he blew out his own brains by a pistol shot in the presence of a crowd of terror-stricken people. SAMPLES OP RUSSIAN TYRANNY.—. A cable-message from Rega, Russia, lately stated that Theodore Smith, of Astoria, Oregon, had been arrested in that country for wearing a red necktie, which was construed into an expression of sympathy with the rebels in the Baltic provinces. The same dispatch announces that Au gust Sibbul, a farmer, had been ar rested for reading in public a trans lation of the American Declaration of Independence. Both men had been condemned to death, but in fluential friends had secured for them a new trial, and after hearing the evidence produced, Smith was sentenced to ten months' imprison ment and Sibbul to eighteen months. A NEW YORK court justly decided the other day that it is no crime to kiss a girl on the street, or anv other public place, if the girl does not object.— Ex. "Justly'' ? How could it be other wise? There is always protection in numbers, you know. PREPAR \TION« FOR WAR TO BE M\I»K IIN THIS COAST. A Washing ton dispatch of tin' ISth states that immediate steps are to he taken by the government to plaee the Pacific Coast in a State of preparation for war. It states that by special direc tion of the President the <ioneral Board of the Navy, of which Admiral Bewey is the President, has been in session for several days discussing the steps necessary to insure the presence of the war fleet, in fighting condition, at the point where it could render the most effective scr- | vice in ease of an emergency, and 1 the liuard lias now formulated and handed to Secretary Metcalf a series |of recommendations, which include : the following: That the entire liat i tleship squadron of the navy be con ' ccntrated on the Pacific Coast. That prompt measures he taken to improve to the highest possible jxiint of eflieiency the ship-building plants and dry-docks on the Pacific Coast, even to the extent of taking these plants and docks under gov ernment control, if that lie found necessary. Other recommendations of similar tenor are included in the plans submitted to Six-rotary Met calfe, who will on the Uflth inst. leave for this Coast to make a spec ial study of naval conditions in the Northwest. It looks very much as if Uncle Sam was 1 incoming reason ably apprehensive of danger ahead. SOME HOPE FOR THE TROUBLED CITY. —San Francisco has done one act which goes very far in redeeming her past history, in furnishing a jury who had the moral courage and physical stamina to indict Mayor Schmitz, Tteuf and other wealthy and influential conspirators against the public weal. Judge Dunne is entitled to praise, too, for his firmness in treat ing the arch-conspirator, Schmitz, the same as any other violator of law and refusing Vail, even for tempor ary lilierty, before sentence is pro nounced. The Hoard of Sujx>rvisors, acting under orders of District At torney Langdon, Monday, adopted a resolution declaring Schmitz tenqxir arily unable to perform his official duties, and appointed Supervisor James L. Gallagher, to assume the duties during such incompetency or until an acting Mayor is properly selected, when it is understood Gal lagher will resign. The Acting May or will bo selected by the prosecu tion aud elected by the Board of Su pervisors. The 27th inst. has been set for date of sentence by Judge Dunne, and Schmitz's lawyers main tain that his incarceration does not disqualify him as Mayor. A quo warranto proceeding is threatened, but it is quite safe to assume that neither Heney nor Langdon have taken steps in the way of purging the city of corruption that will have to be retraced. MANEUVERS FOR COAST DEFENSES. —Under date of last Monday, the War Department announced a programme for joint coast defense maneuvers of the army and militia on the Pacific coast, this summer. Exercises from July 3d to 14th will consist of a de fense of Seattle from an attack by sea. A fleet will attempt to land a force to attack Forts Worden, Ca sey and Flagler. The disposition of the troops outside of the regulars will be as follows: Four companies of the Second Infantry, Washington National Guards, at Fort Wordon; three companies of the Second regi ment at Fort Casey, and four com panies of the Second at Fort Flag ler. The attacking forces will con sist of transports under the Quarter master's Department, now at San Francisco and Seattle. Loss OF FOUR LIVES IN FUTILE EF FORT TO RESCUE ONE.— The mother, two sisters and an aunt of Antone Meyer, a lad 13 years of age, were drowned in Lake Samauiish, two miles north of Monohan, a station on the Northern Pacific, Monday. The boy and sisters were bathing in the lake, when the former got beyond his depth, and crying for help struggled wildly in the water. This so ex cited the others that they lost all reason, and all were drowned. At last accounts but four of the bodies had been recovered, the boy's being the one missing. Lake Sainamish is better known as Squak Lake, and is connected by a slough with Lake Washington. BIBLE NOT INFALLIBLE. Rev. Richard D. Harlan, a son of Asso ciate Justice Harlan of the U. S. Su preme Court, in his baccalaureate sermon, on the 3d inst., before the graduates of George Washington University, at the national capital, said, "The bible is not infallible; it is only infallible to reveal Christ to the world. He called the " take this-or-nothing" method of teach ing Christianity, as the "brigan dage" method. The speaker de clared that it is not necessary to consider the bible an unerring guide when it comes to some of the ques tions of geology, history and ethics. PROBABLY the most portentious strike of all is the impending walk out of telegraphers. The Chicago Board of Trade has appealed to Pres ident Roosevelt to use his powerful influence to avert the disaster. They express it as their opinion that a general strike of the telegraph oper ators would inflict a more serious in jury to the commercial interests of the country than any other conceiv able disaster from any cause. PROSTRATIONS from extreme heat have been frequent in New York city this week. Monday five deaths were recorded from that cause. A Yocxo WOM AN TO INVESTIGATE ('ONIUTIONS AT PANAMA. — Secretary Tuft lias established a novel, as well as a commendable precedent, in the selection of a Southern girl. Miss (Jer ; trade Beeks, of Tennessee, to visit Panama and investigate and report upon conditions relating to health, ! morals and comfort of the canal-build | ers who work for our government. A woman's sympathetic insight and discrimination are to be utilized in solving the great problems there pre : sented. Miss Beeks will spend live J weeks 011 the isthmus, investigating j facts and con litions. She left about a week ago, and on her departure said: "My investigations at Pana ma have to do with every phase of the life of the man engaged there, and of course of their wives and children. I shall visit every town and settlement along the line of the canal and as many of tin 1 homes as my time will permit. No details, however trifling, will, 1 trust, es cape me. The Civic Federation some two years ago sent two men to in vestigate the homes of the workers j on the isthmus and to make whutj suggestions they saw fit for lettering conditions. Many of those recom- ; mendations I ljelieve have been adopt- [ ed. I am going to look into it, at: first hand, and of course a woman understand these things lx-tter." That is the spirit with which she | enters upon the work of the Civic Federation of her State, of which she j is a member. It is the spirit of j philanthropy that incites the trip, which must involve much personal sacrifice, and is not the perfunctory i sense of duty that actuates the ordi nary work of investigation. THAT TWEI.VK-MII.MON REBATE.- It may turn out that the magnamity of our government in rebating at >ol it one-half of the $24,440,778 indemnity ussessed by our government against China for the losses entailed by the lx>xer campaign, is about as effective as the kindness shown the Japs, in many ways, which seem to only in cite them for further expectations. While the retiring ambassador, Chen tung Liang Cheng, is profuse in his thanks for the concession, his ac knowledgment reads, for all that, as the language of diplomacy, in which that despised nation lias so often come off victorious. So far in our dealings with the Japanese, since their bump of conceit has Iteen so enormously developed by victory over ( Russia, all fair words, or professions 1 of amity, have been regarded appar ently as evidence of timidity on the part of our government. It seems probable that their counterparts, the Chinese, will look upon the gift of about twelve millions of dollars more in the light of a peace offering than as inspired bv that " high sense of justice," which Cheng declares he sees in the transaction. When will our people learn that they are deal ing with the sly cunning of the fox, rather than the dignity of the lion or the mastiff, in their intercourse with such idol-worshipers as China and Japan? " AMPIIIARCH."— It is a new won!, | and you need not look in even the | modern dictionary for it. It means I a state of society in which both father and mother rule. It has been added to the English vocabulary by Harriet Johnson Wood, a New York lawyer, in an address before the " Woman's Professional League'' on thesubject " Shall Women Propose?" She seems to think that if this was done, a much better mental and physical growth would result and that the human race would attain a much higher degree of perfection. At least two conditions seem neces sary, however, in establishment of this Utopian state of affairs. First, that women be controlled by a better discretion in selection of a life-com panion than man; second, that she may make a proper union in wedlock more certain by " proposing" in a formal way by word, than by an exhibit of the charms and graces which are a no less open appeal from not being unspoken. As the proposi tion cannot claim either premise, it makes a learned lawyer's contention about as logical as the use of the new word meading mutual control, when her argument is founded upon a pre mise that implies absolute control by women. GROVER CLEVELAND, ex-President, has been near the gates of death the past few days, through a malignant internal growth. He passed from the danger-point Wednesday, and is now on the way to a speedy recovery. His severe illness was kept a pro found secret, except to a few inti mate friends, and the news will come as a shock and surprise to the coun try, as well as satisfaction over the assurance that the crisis has passed. SPOKANE has decreed that "sticks" in the shape of ardent spirits— whiskey or brandy—must not here after be vended at the soda fountains, and the Chief of Police of that city has served notice on all proprietors of drug stores that they must cease selling liquor unless upon a physi cian's prescription. Arrests will fol low unless these provisions are strictly obeyed. THE steamer Santa Barbara broke her propeller shaft off Point Reyes Wednesday afternoon, and laid off the point while tugs were sent to make repairs. She was m route for Olympia, and had 25 passengers for the Sound. THE Weyerhauser lumber syndi cate have increased their capital stock from 12,500,000 to $15,000,000, and will thus probably be enabled to take in cverthing out-doors. A STRENUOUS SESSION. Council Seems to Become a "Storm Centei for all Sorts of Relief. . The work of the City Council seem . to become more strenuous at cue successive meeting, and Monda night the session trenched so nine ; upon the midnight hour that a adjournment was called a week hone . to complete the accumulated busi ness. Only one bid was submitted fu bridging the bay ori Fifth street from Jefferson to Chestnut, an grading to Pear, and it was for $4 '590. which was $t>S5.K2 in excess 1 the estimate of the City Knginecr The bidder likewise wanted $22 | more if the railing of the bridge wa to be constructed of planed lumbe and painted. The bid for improvement of Thin street west of Main, submitted b the same and only bidder. Hernial Mallory. It was for $2,050, whirl was S7OO in excess of the official esti mote. This proposition was held ii] for the committee to confer with tb 1 bidder regarding the payment fo | the bulkhead by the city, which i j seems did not enter into theestimati for the bid. The Street Coiiimittei j will report the matter back at tin I next meeting, j The Olympia Lumber Co. askei j the city to restrain August Kclmeidei from trespassing niton their prop | erty; at least that seemed to be tlx | purport of their endeavor, for it tva; 1 shown that only a part of the piles j driven were in the street, and tlx j mill company was. therefore, a> j much a party at interest as the city, The Council, however, instructed tlx j City Attorney and Chief of l'olici to stop tlx" work. A protest against the Franklin I street regrade was filed by C. B. Mann and Robt. Doragh. J. D. Hurbst applied for a forty jter cent, rebate on old street assess ments; K. S. Morton for a sixty per cent, reduction on street assess ment 011 his Thirteenth street prop erty; J. \V. Rankin for a SSO refund on cost of a sewer, which it seems is | tapped by others as a public sewer, which it is to all intent and pur poses, although constructed by him self for his own use, all <>f which were referred with authority to act. Emil Martensen asked that an old gravel tax against lot 1 of block 5 be canceled on payment of sll. which petition was referred to committee with power to act. Clias. Talcott asked for a two weeks' delay on Fourth street grade tax, which was granted. A tire-alarm IH>X was ordered in stalled at Fourth and Tilton streets. The proposition to open Stoulten street, on Kastside Fourth street hill, was indefinitely postponed. A transfer of the liquor license of the Capital saloon from H. J. Kear ney to Crowley «& Kudicott was grant ed. The matter of placing a tire hy drant at Jefferson and Third streets, at a cost of $l9O, was referred to Fire and Light committee, with au thority to act. THE WEATHER. Following is the reiwrt for the week ending on the 17th inst. made by the weather bureau at Seattle: The week was an unusually cool and cloudy one for this time of the year in all parts of the State. Nearly every day was more or less cloudy, and the sunshine was only 10 to 40 per cent, of the possible amount. The mean tcmj>erature was several degrees In-low the normal. The maximum temperatures dur ing the week were from 57 to 71 degrees at different stations. The highest temperature reported was 71 degrees, at Ephrata, on the 11th and 14th, and at Sixprong on the 10th. The minimum temperatures were from S3 to 4»i degrees at different stations. The lowest temperature reported was 33degrees, at Crescent, on the 15th. Showers were general during the first three days of the week, and were quite copious in most districts. In the southwest counties, including Clarke, Cowlitz, Lewis and Pacific, showers occurred on nearly every day of the week, and the total amount was over an inch. In the eastern counties the showers occur red mostly on the 10th, 11th and 12th, and were nowhere so much as an inch in total amount, except, at Pomeroy, where an inch of rain fell in two days. High winds were quite general over the State on the 11th. Gbioov BLUES, — This is the name of a new freak in religion, resemb ling somewhat, in their senseless antics, the " Holy Rollers," who have attained such prominent and unenviable notoriety in our own State. The Hluks not only fall upon the lloor in apparent fits, but. babble unintelligible nonsense, which they believe to 1* an unknown language, spoken somewhere on Earth. Rev. Levi Lupton is the head of the or ganization, which numbers already several thousand converts, mostly of the more ignorant class. He claims that when the penticostal spirit de scends upon worshipers they receive from the Holy Ghost the ability to speak in strange languages. They live in tents upon the grounds where their camp-meetings are held. The desciples sit in another tent. They are gathered from thirty States, and some have come front abroad. Near ly a hundred are clergymen recruited from a score of denominational sects. It is said that a camp has already beon established in California. HONEST people will be glad to be assured that Chester Thompson who murdered Judge Emory at Seattle, six months ago, is now safely lodged in the ward provided for the crim inally insane, in the State Peniten tiary at Walla Walla. He was shaved, like other prisoners, and clothed in a striped suit prescril>ed by the Board of Control for the criminally insane. IT is reported that Judge Hanford has refused to grant an injunction asked by the Oregon Railway and Navigation Co. to restrain the State Railway Commission from proceed ing in the State courts or from hold ing a bearing on the 21st inst. (to day) which will be a step for re opening the joint-rate matter of roads operated in this State. OABTOHIA. tontU _/yTkt Kind You Han Always Bang# I YES, WE WILL DO IT!
