The proposed line is about 13 miles long and all but one mile has been grad ed. The work cost approximately $65,000. No rails have ever been laid. P. R.

The company is capitalized for 1, --000,000 $1 shares, but there are only 420,000 outstanding. Another Coal Famine Threatens. SEATTLE, April 10. —Despite the fact that the railroad bill prohibiting railroad companies from operating coal properties will go into effect Jan nary 1, the Northern Pacific will be compelled either to remain in the coal trade, or a fuel famine far worse than that of last winter will result. Development work planned for the coming summer is insufficient to keep up with the growing demands for coal. The Pacific Coast company will open one new mine on Coal creek. It is the only operating company that is making extensive plans to meet next winter's demands for coal. There is nothing in the federal statute that will prevent a railroad coal mine from selling coal locally, but it does prohibit interstate business. Coal operators in this state are relying up on the fact that the Northern PacMte may continue in the local trade to prevent a fuel famine next winter. Murray and Mack, the popular comedians are presenting this sea son an entirely new and original farce, which is said to out-class everything they have ever produced in-as-much, that it is written entirely on new lines and especially for them.

It will be elobarately staged. A complete scenic outfit has been provided for, together with an abun dance of new and beautiful costumes. The company is a large one, contain ing many popular favorites from the vaudeville stage, together with a large chorus of male and female voices. Market Report.

I'm glad you've came, For reasons quite too numerous to name; The gentle zephyrs follow in your trail, I hear the voice of thrush and night engale. The day grows longer, and the peace ful night Is sweet and cool. Say, Spring, you'ra out o' sight! I wish you'd come more often in th year. For life is pleasantest whea yo-i arc here. The ice man rolls his sleeveF r.nd smiles a smile; The time is his the nickles to be guile; The soda water fountains froth and fizz; The ice cream man perks up for hus tling biz. But say, Spring, this is why I freely gloat: You've given me a chance to "soak" my coat; It brought just fifteen plunks—go hang the thrush! Take one on me, Spring—do, old boy —I'm flush! —J. P. F., in Baltimore News. China's Famine Horror. Some idea of the horror 3 of the famine in China may be gathered from this description of the situation at Tsing-kianpu by the correcpondent of the North China Daily News: "The narrow streets were thronged, and it was with difficulty that we made our way through the surging masses. A guard of soldiers with fixed bayonets was stationed on the bridge spanning the first lock of the canal. At the bridge head we saw what was to us the first fruit of famine, a dead Chin ese lying in the sun at the place where he had dropped, with his dog curled up at hi sfeet. Pulling his jacket aside with my stick, I saw that his ribs were literally sticking through his skin, this being cracked and the body being absolutely flesh less. Apparently he was a man of about 30, large framed. I suppose that the body stripped might weight about 80 to 90 pounds. "I have seen Chinese villages and coolies in various parts of the coun try; I have also seen the Korean in his native sewerlike habitat; the gen tle Hindoo of those parts of the cen tral province as yet undefiled by the touch of the white sanitary reform er; and various other breeds and races of elementary humans; black, brown, yellow, mud colored and al leged white, bnt never before have I seen or even Imagined men being as I saw here. Also I have seen life and death in their crudest forms and with the lid off; battle, murder, sud den death—and worse—but never before have I seen such concentrated misery, such indescribable horrors, | as were to be witnessed in the streets and in the camps outside the city of Tsingkianpu. There is not a scrap of animal or vegetable matter left in the dirt or among the cobble stones on the streets of this city. "If the sights in the city itself were bad, the scenes in the camps a mile outside the walls were worse. Inside the camp was congregated a sum of human suffering which would require the pen of a Zola to describe. Hunger and abomination.the abomi | nation of desolation—and worse. They were eating leaves and grass and something that might be rice made into gruel. They were—well, | the truth is that I can't say anything jmore about them except that they were human beings in or approaching an extremity of the direct descrip tion. "The relief afforded by the officials and others has been in the form of coin only, some 30 cash (a cash is worth less than Vz cent) per diem, and wheelborrows of copper 10-cent pieces continually pass through the crowds. This has caused the city in habitants, as one man, to turn rice and grain merchant, and every alley is lined with their stalls and booths containing baskets of rice and corn of various qualities and prices. "Around these the refugees cluster haggling and bargaining and watch ing every grain that may be spilled over the lip of the bamboo measure with a dull wiolfish glare of the eye such as only starvation brings. I never saw nor heard of any cases of theft or looting." The correspondent adds: "It will be impossible to save more than 50 to 60 per cent." Advertised Letters.
