TACOMA, April 13.— The Northern Pa
cific engineers have completed the task
of surveying a road cut of Tacoma by
way of Point Defiance and avoiding the
steep hill up which the trains now climb
to Edison. The grade going south of the
pass is two points, or as much as any
where in the Cascade and Rocky Moun
tains. It has been a difficult proposition
for the engineera to nnd a minimum grade
with a minimum cutting through the hills.
Twelve routes were run at different times
and tha engineers after day3 and days
of hard work have at last hit upon a
feasible route with only four-tenths of a
foot per cent Rrade. The maps of the
proposed route are now being prepared
and will be submitted to the officers of
the Northern Pacific in St. PanL
* The proposed new route Is along, tha
shore of „ Commencement Bay to Smelter
and Point Defiance, thence along the nar- *
rows to Stellacpom. thence along tha
beach line to Olympla. During tha" en
tire run to Olympia the water will sel
dom be lost sight of. Although the first
cost of construction will be great, tha
road will be profitable in the long run.
inasmuch as only on© engine will bo re
quired for south-bound trains and the ser
vice between Tacoma' and, San Francisco
will be shortened by an hour and a half.

right and just that "the city should help
defray the expenses, and he -suggested
that the Supervisors be appealed to for
an appropriation of $3000. This met with

Th*> Mayor's attention has also been
called to the matter and he is making
an investigation.
Under the law Auditor Baehr is liable
for all sums that may be drawn from
I he city and county treasury by reason
of his action in auditing a claim that
rr.ay be illegal. When Baehr's attention
v.as called to the constitutional provision
he was surprised. He said, however, he
would not do anything in the matter until
he had consulted an attorney and secured
legal advice. He intimated that the city
and "cour.ty would not lose by his action
in auditing the claims of the Assessor,
as both the latter and himself were re
sponsible parties.
The books of the Auditor show that the
Assessor has drawn during the month of
February $611 10, which is flTT 73 more than
ho is allowed by the charter provision
whit h was in operation when he assumed
office. His regular salary is $333 35 per
jr.onth. and undrr present conditions the
Assessor has increased his demand to
iwie<r that amount.
Assessor Dodge was elected in Xovcm
b«-r. 1839, and asf=um< d offire on January
8. 1200. His term does not expire until
January S, 1904. and his salary of $4000
under the foregoing provisions of the con
stitution must remain at that figure until
hits successor is elected.
Section 19 of article V equally forbids
.-in increase in the salaries of all State
officers from the Governor downward dur
ing the term for which they shall be
"Section 9, article XI— The compensa
tion-of any county, city, town or mu
nicipal officer Khali not be increased after

1 v the charter was U0O0 per annum. As
this sum was far too email for such an
important effice the people at the last
election voted to increase the Assessor's
alary to JSOOO. This amendment to the
charter w«s ratified by the last session
of the legislature, and it wguld seem
that Dr. Dodce had a right to derive
pome benefit in the matter. An energetic
taxpayer, however, in inspecting the
books of the Auditor yesterday noticed
that Assessor Dodge's demands for a
higher pro rata on his annual salary were
being favorably considered by Auditor
liaehr. He called the latters attention
fo the following provision of the consti

Suggested a Food Cure.
All of the medical skill in the world is
powerless to cure certain diseases unless
the patient is put upon pure, scientific
food. Then the disease seems to cure it-
eelf in many cases, proving that nature
was demanding proper food to build a
ht-al^y body from.
In this eimple way the use of Grape-
Nuts in jplaco of bad food has worked
many cures when medical skill has been
exhausted. A lady of PlalnOcld, N, J.,
who had been an invalid for over ten
years, says: "I have been treated by em-
inent physicians of New York. Brooklyn
and Newark, besides taking innumerable
proprietary remedies of a cathartic nature
to regulate the bowels.
• "My last phy«ician advised a sanita-
rium, but my husband, who had been
reading one cf your articles, said": 'Not
until we have tried the boasted virtues of
«rapc-Nuts.' So we got some and I have
now used Grape-Nuts for eight months.
When 1 began its use I weighed S5 pounds,
