The consideration of the present management of the Bay View will continue to be in the future as in the past, the comfort and con venience of its patrons. The Alaskan excitement has about gone the way of all mining excitements and booms. Those who have returned from there, while they convey the idea that there is mineral in that country, seem to be in no hurry to go back, and none of our neighbors that have remained there have acquired wealth. The gist of the whole Alaska proposition is this, more money has been and will be spent in outfitting and traveling into that country than has ever been or ever will be brought out. The man who stays at home and steadily pursues his business, has com petency and success already assured him, while he that goes to Alaska stands about one chance in a thousand of returning home as well off as he went away, about one chance in teu thous and of "striking it rich," to say noth ing of the risk of life, accidents, hard ship aud exposure that have to be en dured by all who venture into the terrible wilds and wastes of that deso late country.

Arthur Davis, Miss Davis and Miss Crook returned Sunday afternoon from a trip to Victoria. Miss Louise Culver went to What com Monday, after spending a week with her brother here. Dr. Geoghegan, of East Sound, was in town several days last week doing dental work and is here again this week. Mr. Alex Chalmers, of Doe Bay, and his son, Bert, of West Sound, were the guests of O. H. Culver Saturday night and Sunday. Fred and Paul McMillin, Dr. Hiett, Preston Plumb, Howard Conrad, Jay Aiken and Jim Crook went to Victoria Sunday in the sloop "Emerald," re turning late Sunday night. The revenue launch "Guard" was in Port several days last week and Lieut. Perry was busy boarding the vessels of the Moran fleet for the Yukon and see ing that the papers of the officers were in proper form and properly posted. The Lime company's stenographer, who came from the vicinity or prosaic Olympia, appears to be much impressed with the attractions of English Camp and vicinity. It really is a very pretty and interesting locality, independent of its historical associations. Roche Harbor felt its importance last week when its advantages as a port of call for vessels destined to or arriving from Alaska seemed to be fully recog nized. Port Townsend, Seattle and Tacoma are all right enough in their way, but their way is not our way, and as for the respective advantages of the several places comparisons with Roche Harbor would be simply odious. If we could boast of a mayor, city council and chamber of commerce we would proceed forthwith to have them boldly proclaim the advantage^ of Roche Har bor as a port of call for vessels going to or coming from Alaska, and declare by resolution, after the manner of the three tailors of Tooley street, that "we are the people," and don't you forget it. The port of Roche Harbor enjoys the distinction of having sheltered within the past week , the largest fleet of river steamers which ever sailed from an American port upon a 8,000-mile voy age. The fleet consisted of twelve large stern-wheel • steamers, each of 409 tons net, built at Seattle Iby Moran \ Bros. Company I under contracts t requiring their delivery at St. Michael: near the mouth of the Yukon river. There were also with the fleet five large barges, laden with coal and lumber, and the tugs Holyoke and Resolute, towing the barges and serving as convoys to the river steamers.l The \ latter all cleared from here lor Comoz to take on m much coal as possible in addition to the 150 to 200 cords of wood which each carried. Robt. Mono, head of Moran Bros. Company, builders of the steam ers, accompanied the fleet £on Che steamer Pilgrim. The vesseUi are all heavily insured and whether they ar rive safely at St. Michael or not, the builders are said to be sure of > very lane profit. It Is reported that the river steamers cost $££» «•<* •?£ that the contract price at St. Michael is $10,000. It is calculated that the trip M cccupv about thirty days and Mr. Moran stated here that the daily ex panse la nearly $1,000. There were about 200 men with the fleet. Roche.

A dispatch from Gape Haytien says that United States troops have been landed at Panta Gardena. It is expected that five steamers car rying 6,000 troops will leave San Fran cisco for Manila within a week. It Is estimated that if the war con tinues a year the expense will reach the enormous sum of 1700,000,000. The war revenue bill passed the sen ate Saturday, twenty-eight Democrats and Populists voting against it because of the bond provision. It is the reported determination of the government to capture Porto Rico and hold it as a permanent possession because of its great strategic value. Capt. Chas. V. Gridley, who com manded the flagship Olympia at the battle of Manila, died at Kobe, Japan, June 4. He was on his way home on sick leave. Twelve cars loaded with gun car riages and machinery for the five mor tar batteries which are to be placed on the the fortifications now being con structed at Admiralty head have ar rived in Seattle. The battleship Oregon is reported to have sunk a Spanish torpedo-boat de stroyer near the entrance to the harbor of Santiago last Friday night. It is supposed to have been either the Ter ror or the Furor. None of the Washington troops have yet been ordered to the Philippines. Private Howard Madison, of Co. £, First regiment, attempted to escape from tbe camp at San Francisco a few days ago, but was captured and will be courtmartialed and doubtless sent to a military prison. The most important war news of the past week is the account of the sinking q£ the big steam collier Merrimac iv the narrow channel leading to the har bor of Santiago de Cuba early in the morning of the 3rd inst. It was a des perate venture and was undertaken with a view to obstructing the channel enough to prevent the escape of the Spanish fleet under Ad miral Cervera. Volunteers were called for and Lieut. Richmond Hobsou aud six men were chosen from among 400 who offered to join in the perilous un dertaking. At 4 o'clock Friday morn ing the Merrimac, under her owu steam, entered the channel under a terrible Spanish fire. The vessel was riddled with projectiles, but she an chored and swung around. Lieut. Hobson then set off an internal torpedo with an electrical attachment. There was an explosion, the Merrimac sank, and the channel was closed. Hobson appears to have carried out his plan to the smallest detail, except as regards the method of escaping. The row boat in which the crew were to attempt to escape was either blown or shot to pieces, for Lieut. Hobson and his men drifted ashore on an old catamaran, which was slung over the ship's side at the last moment as an extra precau tion. On reaching shore, the men were taken prisoners aud scut to Santiago city under guard. Later they were taken to Moro castle, where they are Beauty la Bio©* Dee». Clean blood means a clean skin.
