What the New Body of Water “’1“
be Like-n'l‘h'e Benefit to
the Climate.
Los ANGELEs. Cal., Oct. 10.—Dr. P. G.
Cotter, of Yuma, is in this city, says it is
estimated that nine-tenths of the water of
the Colorado river is flowing into Salton.
Nevertheless the sea is not increased, but
has lowered about three inches. It is now
from four to seven feet in depth in Various
places. The Colorado river is very heav
ily charged with solids and will precipitate
a half inch alluminum to every six feet of
water. This matter is being constantly
washed down the river and is forminga
bank in the river bed just beyond the break
so that shortly the entire body of the river
Willbe turned into the Salton sea. Thei
winter floods, he thinks, will raise Salton i
sea until it becomes a lake 300 feet in
1 depth and 150 miles in length, and finds its
‘ outlet through the bed of a new river into
the Gulf of California. The Southern Pa
cific engineers have examined the river
break with a view of finding a way to turn
the river back. They reported that such
could be done by piling. but that it would
be too extensive a job for a company to
undertake. Dr. Cotter says the people of
Yuma are glad of the change and that the
new sea will be a benefit to the climate as well
as to provide them with a new method of
transportation, since the vessels could
come into the sea from the Gulf of Cali

it be Taken Up.
Editor Tribune:
Some of the city councilmen have sug«
gested that if the Westslde Railway com
pany would purchase a street through
block 48, the city would improve it, and in
that way remove the cause of delay of the
street railway enterprise. That could
doubtless be done, but if my vote can pre
vent it, it never will be done. I consider it
nothing less than an insult to ask us to do
so. We are projecting an enterprise, which
can never pay us, unless we cruise, by our
; efforts. greater developments than have
‘heretofore been caused by any one enter
prise ever undertaken in Olympia. We
expect to pay at least $25,000 to get the first
mile of i
We could take the money and invest it ‘
where we could profit by it, but our gain
would be no profit to‘ the city. In the end
we hope to get large returns on our invest
ments, but our only hope is in making
hundreds of dollars or the public, to every
one we make for ourselves. If any man or
company will do the work we have set out
to do, we will pay a. bonus of ten thousand
dollars and purchase for them all of block
48: and grade all the streets for the first
mile an a. half. The above offer, remem
ber, is open for ten days to any who may
desire to undertake the enterprise. I claim
that in building a street railway at this
stage of the city’s history we are doing
more for the public than for ourselves, and
being fully possessed of that conviction it
naturally makes me indignant to be told
that if I wish to build, I can do so by pur
chasing the privilege. J. R. CHAPLIN.

Washington some years and is looked up
on as a strong lawyer. Lieutenant-Gov
ernor Laughton studied law in early life
and was compelled to abandon it on ac
count of his health. He was admitted to
practice a few years ago in Tacoma, and is
particularly strong on mining laws. Mr.
Church, the other member of the firm, is
the author of"Uhurch on Habeas Corpus,”
a treatise received and acknowledged by
the legal profession as a standard author
it on that branch of the law. He was one
oty the associate editors of American Decis
ions, a work now recognized as the best
collection of leading cases from the earliest
issue of state reports in the country and
embraced in 100 volumes.
The new firm is a strong one and will,
doubtless become a noted one in the state.
An Extra Session.
When our German friends, Peter George
and Fritz Lacey, heard about the new
university going to the dogs and no jute
bags for the convicts to make, they retired
to a beer hall and had swei beer with
some moldfi cheese on the side. As they 1
discussed t e question, Peter said:
“Der significance of dot row lasht nite

The Chiefs and Braves llave a
Pow Wow--The Braves
are Downed.
There was wild and weird music in the
fair of the governor’s office last night, at
‘ the powwow of the state university build
ing commissmn. Imaginary daggers and
long knives were frequently displayed. It
was a red-hot ghost dance between the
Skookum state auditor and the Hyas Tyee
Governor and Braves Hayden, Arthur,
Leavenworth and Mcßeavy. The Eyes
Tyee “paced the floor, chewing the end
of sweet and bitter fancy;” the Skookum
official swung his long arms up and down,
and quite as often as an automatum pump
handle in the arid regions. Hayden, the
Seattle brave, stroked his handsome beard,
grew red in the face and boldly charged
bad faith on the Skookum auditor. Leav
enworth, the Tenas brave of pretty Olym
pia sharpened his tomahawk on the sole of
boot and fiercely told the governor and
auditor that It looked as if it was conspi
racy to knock out every commission that
Laufihton had appointed and to ruin the
repu lican party of the state; the other
Seattle brave, John Arthur, was amazed
and confounded that the work of the com
mission Was to suddenly end. He pleaded
with Skookum Reed and drew his hands
across his face as if to fell the wounds cre
ated by the taking of his magenta colored
scalp:.Mcßeavy, the Mason county brave,
the stoutest and handsomest of the tribe,
sat immovable but from away down under
his democratic vest there arose to his big
head a ditty which ran like this:
“Repubs delight to bark and bite,
This is fun for the Dems tonight.”
This he silently sung to himself while
the battle fiercely raged.
“The angry spot did glow” on the brow:
of nearly all the braves during the collo
(Ely in t 1e Wigwam for three hours and at
t e breaking up of the dance at nearly
eleven o’clock, the fat and sleek-headed
braves ”such as sleep 0’ nights”and the
braves of a lean and hungry look who
“think too much,” all returned to their
couches to renew the battle this morning.
But the Skookum auditor and the II as
Tyee governor slept the soundest. They
had downed the braves. There will be no
state university building erected until after
a special session of the legislature is called.
winch is now talked of more than ever, or
until after the next regular session. 1125
men who have been working on the site
since the first of October ant to whom is
due two thousand dollars will have to wait
for their money, the architect will get noth
in —at present—there will be no more five
dollars per dug! for the commission, the
boys of the sta 8 will be educated inside of
a. tumble-down wooden shanty for the next
few years, there will be no cry of "brick
and brains” for the youth of Washington.
The new university scheme is as dead as
the geological survey or the manufacture
of jute in the state penitentlnry.
“What occasioned the trouble with the
university fund '1” asked it TRIBUNE re
porter of one of the braves from afor
eign tribe.
”The governor first objected to the con»
mission to be paid to the architect; he also
objected to the furnishings of the omce of
the building commission in Seattle as be-
ing too elaborate, etc., and has
objected to other little matters; he
says, however, that he does not
agree with Auditor Reed, that he (the and
itor) is not authorized to issue warrants
for debts incurred in the work of con
structing the university building."
“Why did Major Hayden charge Auditor
Reed With bad aith 7”
”Some months ago we held a meeting in
the governor’s office, in this city, and every
member of the commission was present.
Auditor Reed was also there. The whole
.of the proHSsed' expenditure of the $400,-
1000 was ta ed over,the law was examined
critically, the glans were exhibited and the
state auditor t ere and then said he would
honor the vouchers as presented. They
have been so honored until now he sud—
denl stops and says he will take nothing
shorl'of a decision of the supreme court
to agprove ani]r more vouchers. I am dis
gus ed with t 0 narrow, contracted views
of some of the state oflicials of Wash
ington and do not. care to hold any
0 cc of either honor, trust or prolit any
longer. I think the commission willresign.
Another thing. The Post-Intelligenccr
has been recently knifindg the commission
because it was appointe by Laughton.and
Edmond Meany, of the world’s fair com
mission, has been yelling out for a brick
building and plenty of brains inside to
teach the pupils. Our commission
wanted to give _ the state a splen
did aud substantlal structure, to which
it is entitled, but it appears that
anything but wood or brick 1s unsatisfac
tory to men who have done nothing but
play whist and chew tobacco in the back
room of a backwoods hotel for thirty years.
The world moves. Such men do not. The
attorneygeneral said long ago that the
warran s might be issued.”
:‘Then the state auditor will not be
guided by the decision ‘2” .
“That’s the size ofit. He thinks, per
haps, that the attorney-general does not
know it all, which is not very compliment
ary to that official. ”_
“What was done at the session of the
commission this morning?”
“A resolution was passed to ask the su
preme court to issue a mandamus at once
to cdinpel the auditor of state to honor
the vouchers of the university commission.
It was also ordered that al work shall
cease, and the engineer was instructed to
collect and takec large of all tools and ma
tenal and store them away.”
“Are the members of the commission gu
ing to resign 7” was asked.
' They are thinking seriously of it. It
was their unanimous intention to do so at
first, but they will await the action of the
surreme court of the state on the matter.
W Ist concerns as most now is the pay of
the laborers and others who. have been at
work since the Ist of October.”
"Here is another mess,” be con
tinued. “Treasurer Lindsley says he
would not accegit any of the war
rants if the audi or drew them, as he
holds the same views in the matter as the
audito, in ogposition to the views of the
governor an commission,”
“ Will there be an extra session ’I"
“I understand that Auditor Reed de
-1 mands one in order to straighten out this
_ and other matters.”
Attorney-General Jones arrived here this
afternoon on the 1 o’clock train and the
. members of thecommission were immedi
; ately closeted with him.”
Thurston County Ahead.
Farmer Owen Bush, of Bush prairie, in
this county, has offered to devote uten
acre tract to the raising of products for ex
hibition at Chicago. and he will be
supplied with seeds and will be aided in
other ways by the World’s fair commis~
sion. Former Bush took the prize for
grain at the Centennial exposition in 1876,
and he is satisfied he can do it again.
