OUR STREET RAILWAY. '
The People on the Westslde Want the
Road Finished.
City Councilman Percival has been re
porting that the grade on 9th street, Ta—
coma, is 17% per cent and that West
. Fourth street in this city is less than that
‘ and tnat the reason why the Westside rail
way company does not go up Fourth street
1 is because it does not wish to improve Mr
IPercival’s property. As a matter of fact
1 thers is no grade in Tacoma over which
‘ electric cars operate, greater than 12 per
cent. It is not to be supposed that the
Westside Railway Company was organized
for the purgose of improving Mr. Percival’s
property; ut it was organized for the
greatest good to the greatest number and
the quicker the city council makes arrange
ments to grade Grant avenue and Harrison
avenue so that we can get down an electric
line. the better it will be for the city. It is
understood that a committee of the coua;
cil now have the matter in charge, whi
will probably accomplish something. Port
Townsend with a much smaller population
than Olympia, has an electric street rail
way in cferation for six miles. Olympia
is behin the times up to date.

tended account of the funniest, wittiest
and one of the most thoroughly en'oyable
performances ever seen at the Olympia

CHILIAN CIRCLES.

l
‘ The Tone Toward Anlerlca. Greatly
Changed. The Next President a
Strong Man. .
VA-LPARASO, Oct. 13.—The Junta and pol
itical circles are greatly exercised over the
comments which are appearing in the
newspapers of the Argentine Republic
in regard to the treatment of the ofiicers of
Balmacedas government, who have fallen
into the power of the present authorities.
Editorials condemn the action of the
Junta in “persecuting” as they term it,
Balmaceda’s supporters by imprisonment.
Such action the newspapers declare, is
unworthy of a civxlized nation and they‘
add that the proper course for the victors l
to pursue is one of forbearance. The at
titude of the Junta towards the American
legation is now so concilatory that the
presence of the cruiser, “San Francisco”
in Chilian waters is no longer deemed ne
cessary. Capt. Schley, of the Baltimore,
has so informed Admiral Brown. It is
learned on reliable authority) that the name
of Augustin Edwards has een presented
as a candidate for the presidency, with as
surance that he will be elected. He isa
strong man politically. although not cred
ited with brilliant qualities of statesman
ship. His candidacy will probably tend
to settle all differences. Colonel Carvallo.
who was one of Balinaceda’s officers at Go
quimbo, and who while on his way to Peru
was taken from the British steamer at
anique by the junta police, on a charge of
misappropriating public money, is now in
jail at Santiago, Coquimbo division, also
confined there. Arrests offirominent civil
and military adherents of almaceda con
tinue. Minor officials, on the other hand,
are being released daily. It is evidently
the intention of the junta to release many
goliticzlil prisoners after election on Octo—
er 18t ). i
OLYMPIA’S LAND OFFICE.
Its First Year’s Business Unexpect
edly Makes it 11 Maximum Office.
The reports of the first year’s business
of. the Chehalis district, with headquarters
at‘ Olympia, just compiled, show a busi
ness beyond expectations. The district in
cludes Pierce, Thurston, Chehalis, Mason
and portions of Pacific, Lewis, King and
Kitsap counties. The first land office was
in Olympia, but during Cleveland’s admin
istration was removed to Seattle. This left
the two offices of Vancouver and Seattle
for western Washington, but both offices
were so overrun that they were divided,
portions of each district being transferred
to this new district. It was thought that
most of the land in the new district was
taken and that it would not be a maximum
office; that is, an office in which the fees
and commissions are sufficient to cover the
salaries of the register and receiver, which
are $3,000 each, less SSOO each which the
government pays. Instead, however, this
amount is exceeded by fully SIO,OOO, while
the cash business for the entire year ,
amounts to a little more than $160,000.

Open Meeting of The Nebraska Club.
The Nebraskans have made arrangements
for an open meeting at Tacoma hall on
next Thursday evening, at half past seven
o’clock. Music will be furnished by the
John D. Marioner’s Mandolin club and the
Fish Pole Band. General Cavunuugh will
sfeak about the resources of Nebraska and
ansas congared with those of Washing
ton. Prof. ull one of the Keeley institute
will tell the story why he moved to Wash
ington and why he is so well pleased with
the prospects of Olympia. Little Miss Iva
Van Epps and Master Willie Forrest will
declaim. T. C. Van Epps will act as
chairman of the meeting. Admission
free. Everybody invited whether you have
ever lived in Nebraska or not.
The Best Always Pays.
Anything that announces your business
is an advertisement, whether it be a card,
sign, handbill or a newspaper announce
ment. All have their uses, but for charac
ter and cheapness the largest and mostsuc—
cessful business men have learned that
newspaper advertising is the best. The
man who would expend a thousand dollars
ger year in advertising should, as a rule,
evote 70 per cent. to newspapers.
Our Maln Street System.
Port Townsend with not so large a pop
ulation as Olympia, is ahead of the Capi
‘tal City in street car accommodations.
The Key City has an electric line in flood
running or er. Our ”system" on ain
street still lingers along like a South Arn
erican snail. What is the city council to‘
do with it? The people were promisedl
something better a. year ago. It certainly
is not up to the times.
Head and Tail.
' Boston Courier: Two boys were ob
served leading home a cow. One boy had
hold of a rope tied around her horns, while
the other had hold of her tail. A gentle
man asked him why he kegt hold of the
cow’s tail. “Well,’said t e boy.“when
she walks along all right John leads her by
the rope, and when she walks backward I
lead her by the tail.
