WEST pNTE Pd S E
ANACORTE3 JUNE 24, chanul or nun. Ever since starting the Enter, prise, in March last, it has been our aim to furnish subscribers with a thoroughly live local paper. Ow ing to increased business, and with a desire to more successfully ac* complish the above result, wo have this day admitted as a partner in our newspaper and job printing bus iness, Mr. F. 31. \\ alsh, a well known journalist and a thoroughly practical man, recently from Cali* fornia, whom we now take pleasure in introducing to our patrons, hop ing onr endeavors to represent them more fully will merit their approba tion. Alf. D. Bowen & Co. Anacobtes, June 19, 1882. A LOCAL STEAMBOAT. Wc are in need of a good local steamboat to ply about this portion of Whatcom county. As it re* mains at present the farmers in the vicinity of the Nooksack and Samish flats are without any com* parative means of outside communi* cation in the matter of sending their produce to market. A small stea mer, built after the common shovel* nose, whcelsbarrow pattern, con necting at this place as a practicable deep water depot and also with the steamers running on the inside route ter Seattle, and the Hope on the outside for Port Townsend, could work up a business that would pay well for the capital invested. From good authority we learn that the ocean steamers will call in at Ship harbor this fall for grain, this being the natural center for all grain and produce raised in this section, and being a distance of only twenty miles out of their direct route up Sound. This will bo an additional attrac tion for a local steamer. A promi nent merchant on the Nooksack river informs us that his freight bill alone amounted to SIOO per month, and ho is by no means the only ship* per in that section. By the cutting away of the jam, the river Is navi gable a distance of thirty miles from its mouth, tapping one of the rich est sections of western Washington. A steamer could easily run regular tyips to both the Nooksack and the Samish once a week, and. in the meantime could probably obtain more or less business among the islands of the archipelago. By paving communication by means of a trunk line running through to Victoria, and a local steamboat con. necting with them at this place as the most convenient and centrally located, it can easily be seen that benefits would be derived which will be of inestimable advantage to the entire county. Many persons in this county have been, and are at the present time, opposed to any thing that will help another section, although they themselyes may ob* tain indirectly the greatest benefit, and at the same time they are cog nisant of this fact. Tet it Is strange, ly true that such Is the case. Such petty jealousy existing between a few obscure postofflee stations, each one clamoring for the right to be recognised above all others as the leading metropolis, has had the ef* feet of seriously retarding many en. terprises of common interest to the whole community. The nation’s debt during the month of May just past was dimin ished .$10,37&,J31, and during the past eleven months to the extent of 9139,124,644. The debt amounts now, deducting money now in the treasury, to $1,701,475,168. The in. torestbearlng bonds amounts to about $1,480,000,000, bearing an average annual interest of 4£ per cent, against $2,500,000,000, bearing 6 per sixteen years ago. I'MK WEEKLY NORTHWEST ENTERPRISE, AKACORTES. WASHINGTON TERRITORY, JUNE 24, ISS2. f;i)jiok f\ i. sorts, It i 3 stated that Elaine is taking part in the independent political tight in Pennsylvania, and that he is indirectly doing all he can for Sen* ator Mitchell, On the 26tb of May Hon. Thos. H. Brents, Helegate in Congress from Washington Territory, made an argument before the Senate Com mittee on Territories for our admis sion into the Union as a State. A cloud ominous of the approach of a financial panic is reported from tho lookout. The countrj* is said to be suffering severely from tho effect of short crops, railroad war, and ex cessive speculation. Wm. H. Vanderbilt now owns 860,000.000 in government bonds- He has just received from the Sec* retary of the Treasury a check for the quarterl}' interest thereon, amounting to 6475,000. Next Friday will be a black Fri day for Charles J. Guitcau, the as* sasin of President Garfield, for on that day he will pay the penalty of his atrocious crime, unless, indeed, President Arthur intercedes, which is not at all likely. The largest and most splendid railroad depot in the United States, the Grand Central in New York, is said to have cost less than a million and a half. The Union depot of Portland, (Ogn). it is said, will cost more than a million and a half. New York is nowhere. The Toronto Globe says it learns on excellent authority that the Ca nadian Pacific Kailroad must cross the Ilocky Mountains by the Yel low-Head Pass, and that Sir Cbas. Tupper’s statement to Parliament that a more southern pass than that had been discovered is untrue. Gen. Sherman has submitted to the Secretary of War the report of the board appointed to investigate as to the number of people killed and property stolen, etc., during the recent Indian outbreak in Arizona. Total killed, 42; wounded, 9. The depredations committed as reported by citizens involved a total loss of stock and other property of $30,250. Gen. Logan, at Washington, June 10th, appeared before the commit tee on education and labor, and made an argument In favor of the bill be introduced some time since, directing the appropriation of in* ternal revenue receipts, from the tax on whisky, for tbe benefit of the na tional school system. Senator Lo* gan hopes he will bo able to get it through tbe Senato this session. By the Northern Pacific line it Is 270 miles from St. Paul to Fargo, 470 to Bismark, 689 to Glendi/e, 768 to Miles City, 812 to Forsyth, 912 to Billings, 1,027 to Benson’s Landing, 1,052 to Bozeman, 1,081 to Gillatin and 1,151 to Galena. The road is now in operation to or near Forsyth. When the line is com pleted to Butte City there will be a saving of over 800 miles to Chicago as compared with the Union Paci fic, which will be a vast saving In the shipment of ores and all heavy freights to and from the East. The Mexican Minister has re ceived official information from the Department of State of Mexico to the effect that the Mexican Congress has repealed the export duty on sil ver coin and silver bullion, which has been in existence since Spanish rule, and which has been one of the principal drawbacks to the develop ment of mining industries in that country. Among several reasons which determined tjbo Mexican Con gress to repeal that duty is the wish to encourage the investment of American capital in the Mexican mines. The act takes effect the Ist of November, 1882. NE\V AD VEKTISEMEN IS. aiss is Coin talk®, and eo docs Country Produce, at J. & 6. GACHES, LACONNER, W. T.
