The effective manner in which the Northern Pacific has 'bottled up Tacoma,
bo far a* railroad tran*i>ort<ition i« concerned, i- strikingly shown liv the freight
traffic arrangement* whkh the Great Northern has to make in order to get goods
out of this city, or into it.
The Great Northern cannot ship one pound of freight over the Mill of the
Northern Pacific between Tacoma and .Seattle, no m to connect with Great North
crn rail*. Only by u«ing sleitmbcmtN ,■.,.,,, the two cities can it handle such
freight ax is offered.
The Tacoma Times lias made a thorough investigation of this matter. It find*
that freight coming from the Ka*t over (In' Great Northern is unloaded at Smith's
Cove and transhipped In steamboat to Tacoma, ut considerable extra expense to
the railroad.
Again, when freight in offered the Great Northern at TaCOtna, for shipment
east to any point on its line, thin freight has to be hauled down to the wharf and
loaded into a steamboat for conveyance to Seattle, where it in again handled at con
siderable expense and placed al>owd Great Northern cars.
Many kindu of froi«ht. a liicli will not *tnnd thi, handling, lanimi lie accepted
b] the • •■■■ ii N"itli( in.
fOnly each kind,- m are well bond nnd proof against frequent handling, like
nncd goods, cased mcrchandi»e and tin like, an in the limited list of article*
which can be advantageously hauled by the Great Northern, lining steamboat as
sistance to ,111.1 from Seattle.
As ,1 matter of course the Great Northern must make a- low rates as the K.
I' in order to get any trade at .ill. Hence it follows that the railroad must pa)
the steamboat* for their assistance out of its freight receipts, thug reducing net
Bouu mil ni once Mk, "Whj did nol Mr; Hill, under the reccnl

allow the <ii< iii Northern Freight to pui or« the N, P. tncki between Tacomn
and Seattle?"
Probably he would bam done so, under ordinary condition*. It happened, how
ever, that n great many citizens and m me aggressive state officials were up in
arms ngainrt .the "merger"- .-• > i • t were neck ing to prove that it was an arrangement to
destroy comjictition between two transcontinental roads.
It was Hill's policy not to give them one bit of evidence on which to hang i""
creding* ttgainst hint in the courts. ," He could not, therefore, afford to change the
status of freight traffic in any way,
What better evidence would Governor Me Bride have wanted, for instance, that
the two roads were being operated together under the "merger" than for Mr, Hill
to have directed ii.<- Northern I'acific to let the Great Northern use it- tracks into
Taeoma? . .
Hill alwaya claimed thai the ' net tr" wu not horn of a acheeM to make
tin i«.i roMh uperate in uatam. Benoe be could nol conaiatently bave interfered
in the •lightest degree with tr.itln arrangement* oi the two roada without at once
thro* I ii (.|«-n to attack.
j There was ■ time in Tacome when the people would have fought for the in
terest* of tin Northern Pacific, with almost as much enthusiasm as they would
Lave fought for their country. That was when the N. P. was doing all that it could
possibly do for the town, and for itself.
r the Northern Pacific long linct went over to Seattle and announced, through
J'k deni M'■l'm, thai henceforth th<- traffii ol Seattle will be .i> eagerly -im^

that tbej ,ii. able to competa at an advantage in territory formerly claimed ex
dugivetj ii.i Tacoma merchanti.
So loyalty to the Northern Pacific in sentiment wasted.
It is no moil! the friend of Tacoma than tiny other railroad.
And lastly, now that the "merger" has been destroyed by* the courts and the

and to have eecurod a controlling interest in the N. P. as a.< saturate property.
li this is true, what advantage is it to Tacoma to fight the battles of the N. P.
and at the same time oppose the Great Northern?
k _ The large innjoritjr of citizens are beginning to ask this question and ask it ser
iously, "■ . • ;...*. .: . ■■' ' „

Quit, discouraged and defeated. Hut to young Furrelly, who had the right stuff
in him. it was opportunity.
K''.y With live other ineu he formed the American News Co. The shrewdness and
energy that were his before created a wider field for successful business.
Everybody today knows about the American Co., and there is no surprise oc
casioned by the announcement that its founder made an immense fortune. Nor
is there really any ground for surprise that a millionaire should have conic up
from poverty. Most of them do.
There is no "opportunity" iv all the w >rld lor the man who has not got the es

Of course to be a millionaire is not to have the only, or the highest success.
It is only one type and by no means the best. Hut, at the same time, the man
who builds, up a great and useful business present* good illustration of the qualities
that find success in any direction sought.

"Ooodby, Mrs. Brenton," called Elizabeth,
for I was sitting on the front porch. She
always ha* a smile and a pleasant word for
everyone. Her dress was of champagne
col,iied crepe de chine. The skirt was made
"ith a panel of the goods straight down
the front, and tiny crepe de chine covered
buttons were set on the edge of the panel
to correspond with the folds of the skirt,
which ran quite round the other side of
the panel. There were three rows of shir
ring at the top of the skirt, just running
tip to the panel. The bodice was made
with a yoke and collar of hand work in
lace and ribl>on and knots, the ribbon and
dainty lace insertion were put together
with fagoting in a scroll design. The yoke
was outlined with white silk fringe. The
slee\es were shirred just above the elbow
mid again above the fall of laco ruffles,
which finished the sleeves. Her hat was ol
pale blue straw, with a great white plume
and a fall of white lace. She wore gloves
and shoes to match her gown.
