I Something lzlse to Help Along an Extra Sessron. Peculiar Mistake in the School Law Made by Somebody in the Last Legislature. .Here is another “legal elephant" as State Supt. of Schools Bryan puts it. Treasurer Cole of Spokane county received $3,700 from County Clerk Armstrong as moneys collected by ﬁnes, etc. Superintendent Turner, of the public schools of Spokane, requested the treasurer to place it to the credit of the school fund, but the law on that point not being perfectly clear Treas urer Cole refused to do so until the matter was cleared up. Superintendent Turner wrote to Mr._Br¥e_an asking his advise and the latter has 1‘ ferred the matter ‘to At torney-General Jones. Mr. Bryan in his letter to Turner says: The discrepancies which you refer to between the statutes of 1891 and the school laws of that session, as amended by chapt er 127, had not been called to my attention, and were not known to exist. I have hunted the matter up from ﬁrst to last, and I ﬁnd the case to be a very peculiar one. In the first place the language which you refer to, found in chapter 127, laws of 1891, did not appear in the original bill. By reference to the senate journal it is found to have been inserted upon motion of Sen ator Dyer, and the history of the bill shows it to have passed the senate in that way. By reference to the house journal it will be found that the clause “Unless otherwise provided" was strick en out by the house committee on education, and that the report of the com mittee was adopted. The bill then passed the house in this shape, as shown by the house journal, and was returned to the, senate for concurrence. The senate jour-i nal shows that the house amendments were concurred in, so that the bill became ‘ a law in exactly the same Shane in which it passed the house. Yet in direct contra diction of the senate jounral the enrolled bill contains that clause just as it comes the strangest part of the whole matter. When the bill had passed the senate I went to the enrolling and engrossing clerk (Judge McClinton) and got him to have meacertilied copy of the bill made, forl which I aid one of his clerks either} $3 or $3.50p in order that I might keep perfectly posted as to the condi-i tion of the bill. This cop I i took to the ofﬁce of the secretary ofy state, 3 and in company with his chief clerk, Mr. 1 Davis, I com ared it with the enrolled bill. We readpit entirely through by the enrolled bill and did not discover the dis crepancy. My copy then went to the state printer, and from it the school laws were printed and read by copy. The clause in question is omitted in the school laws, and the history of the bill as shown by the journals of the two branches of the legisla tnre., shows that it should be omitted, yet it appears in the enrolled bill now on tile in the ofﬁce of the secretary of state. It raises a peculiar question. Will the en rolled bill stand as the law. in face of the history of the bill, with which it does not agree? I shall refer the matter to the at torney general for his opinion and will in fl‘ﬁrm you as to what it is as soon as possi e. Trouble on the Mexican, Border. Rio GRANDE CITY, Texas, Oct. 20,—Sun— day morning on the Mexican side, three men were shot by government forces, un— der command of General Larenzo Gracia. Two ofthem were cow boys who had been working near Victoria, and who incauti ously crossed the river withouta permit from the Mexican consul on this side. The 1 other one, Juan Bazan, are army contrac- i tors. was supected of revolutionary senti-‘ ments. By some, they are said to have been American citizens. General Garcia ordered their peremptory execution. Many families terror stricken, have ﬂed to the Texas side. Andrew Merno Nunez, of this town, got drunk, hired a cab and distrib uted revolutionary circulars on the streets. He has been imprisoned by order of the. United States commissioner in default of $1,C:)0 bail. “Below High “’nter Mark.” WASHINGTON, Oct. 20.-—The U. S. su preme court today denied the application ‘ for postponement of the hearing of the suit 3 brougfht here from California to determine ‘whet ier title to land in California below high water mark was originally vested in the United States or the state of California. Presiding Justice Fields said the case was merely a suit over a land patent, that no important constitutional question was in— volved and that it did not need a full bench for its trial. The case therefore will come up for argument towards the close of the week. Foster to Make Speeches. WASHINGTON, Oct. 20.-——Secretary Foster will leave Washington this evening for Ohio, to remain until after the election. He is booked for ten speeches in behalf of the republican cause.

Ships of “far and Steamsllips Built at San l'rnncisco-—A Pleas ant Visit. SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 20.~—“I want to raise $5,000,000 for the purpose of establishing a gun plant in this city” said Irving M. Scott of the Union Iron works yesterday.‘ I don’t want the money for immediate use, but to continue operations with. We can make just as good guns here as can be made anywhere in the world and we don’t have to leave the coast for the material. 1 Everything needed for the manufacture of big guns on our coast defenses and on our war ships can be found in Washington, Oregon and Cahfornia.” Mr. Scott spoke to Congressmen Cutting and Loud, United States Senator Saunders of Montana, Civil Service Commissioner Lyman, Collector Phelps, Surveyor Kilbourn, Postmaster Backus, Major Bonebrake, Col. Smedberg, Eur-Congressman Vandever and others, who he accepted an invitation to run down the bay on the tug Rockaway and inspect the iron works. Mr. Scott con- l tinned, "they did not think we could , build warships out here, but the San Fran- , cisco and Charleston prove the contrary. 1 When we made our ﬁrst bid on a cruiser everybody in the east said we were crazy and that we had not the facilities here for doing work, but they made a big mistake. Now I say there is no reason why we should not make big guns. I have seen all ‘ the gun factories of this country and EU'; rope and we can beat the world at that l work and I am going to have such a fac tory here. The party went all through the workshops, where 1,303 men are emp oyed. In the moulder’s department a. number of men were at work. and Scott said the effects of the strike had worn off. After passing through the shops the guests were taken to the different launching ways, where the battle ship “Oregon” is going into a frame, and the big Paciﬁc Mail iner and Spreckles giant tug are nearing completion. The tug will be the largest boat of her class in the world, and the Paciﬁc Mail steamer will, it is expected, equal in speed any steamer on the Atlantic. The ways where the Oregon is to be constructed are the largest ever built in the United States, for the Oregon will register 10,250 tons. The party also inspected the cruiser Monterey, and then returned to the city. New York Stock Market.

During one of his recent speeches in Ohio, 9. man who claimed to be a Demo crat interrupted Major McKinley with the loud remark: .“A dollar would be worth 100 cents un der free and unlimited coinage.” ‘~ McKinley stopped, smiled on the man who interrupted him, and then answered pleasantly: ’ ' “You have not studied ﬁnance [laughs ter] ; you have not listened to me or you would have got information. The dollar 1 hold in my hands is worth 100 cents—l say it is—hold on there—(as the Democrat be gan to get out of the crowd) because the government’s honor is pledged to maintain it at parity with gold—hold on now and hear what I have to say. The government has $67,000,0C0 proﬁt it has made out of the coinage of these dollars." The man yelled out: “You have issued treasury notes for those coins.” “No, ’ said McKinley, we did not issue treasury notes for silver dollars. 1 see you want information, or need it. at least you are confused about it. Under the law of 1890, passed a year ago last J ully, we pro vided that the §overnment shal buy 4,500,- 0000unces of si ver every month; it buys this silver at its market value. The gov ernment can bug 420 grains of silver for a dollar today. 0 you see '2 That dollar (holding one up) has 371% grains, and so when the fovernment 1581168 its treasury note for a ( ollar it does not issue on 317% grains of silver, but for every dollar’s worth of silver in the treasury, so you can buy 420 or 430 grains for sl, and for every treas ury note for $1 the government has behind it silver bullion, which can be sold in any market in the world for 100|cents. You can only sell the silver in this dollar for 76 cents. Does my friend understand that? Bold Mall Robbery.

The New System of Drainage 1n Olympia. A Heaulllul and Complete Map of the City and its A1!- dlnons With no tally. The ﬁrst tangible efforts to equip the city } of Olympia with a thorough and complete ‘ sewerage system have been in progress for the past three months, and the result of the work will be presented for the inspec tion of the city council. The work has been under the supervision of J. 8. Camp, city engineer of Puyallup, and has been placed in an intelligible shape by Edward Combes, his draughtsman, who has pre pared the largest, handsomest, most com plete and thoroughly accurate map of Olympia, that has ever been attempted. The work has been quietly progressing for the past three months, known to but few, and in the engineer’e ofﬁce in Temple ﬂat, the map has been prepared. It is ten feet wide and eight feet deep, and the detail which it involves make it invaluable to the city for a dozen and one distinct pur poses. Itshows 150 additions to the city of Olympia, giving the exact size of every street and lot. Each block is plainly num bered, showing all the principal buildings, churches, railroad depot, wharves, bridges, and railway tracks. The tire limits are plainly marked, and every water main, and ﬁre hydrant is shown. In the prepar ation oft e work, all ordinances have been consulted, and the widening of streets or vacating ot’alleys by ordinance are shown in an instant by a ( iﬂerent color. , Circles from the center of the city, show the distance by each half mile, ofany point on the map. The map is a worko art, and is well worth the inspection of every citizen ofOlympia. In harmony with its interests a frame or border work, is con structed by a representative of sewer pipe. The (great diﬁicnlty that is en counters in sewering the city, is the Seventh street tunne . which cuts the city in two, and to avoid this, it was nec essary to run the main sewer to Jefferson street. All streets south of the tunnel, will be drained by a main sewer, which deposits the water about half way down the eastside ofthe long wharf where it can easily be ﬂushed by the tide. All of the city north of Seventh street, will be run to Eighth street, and east on Eighth street to the in tersection of Jefferson, where there is a flush tank. All the cast side is drained into Eighth street by sewers running north and south, thence west on Eighth to Jeﬂer son, and south on Jefferson street to the main sewer which empties into the bay. The sewerage system has been so planned that it can be extended to accommodate a city of 20,000 people, or even more, with out removing the main pipes. A great mistake whic has been prevalent in build ing sewers in the west, ms been avoided, which was that of using larger pipes than was necessary, giving the sediment an opportunity to settle. The smallest pipes possible, consistent with the amount of rainage the?! will have to accommodate, will be use , The mechanical arrange ments are such that the incoming tide will be admitted just sufﬁciently to ﬂush the pipes, receding with the ebb and carrying al sewerage for miles out into the bay. After the inspection oi'thecouncil sugges tions will be acted upon. THE NEW FIRE HOUSE. Improvements to the Quarters of Engine 00., No. 2. Engine Company No. 2, now has lire headquarters that are a credit to the city. The building had been improved at an ex pense of SSOO, making a meeting room for the company, live sleeplng apartments for the members, and a card room for recrea tion. The members of the company have the liberty of the rooms at any time, and those desrring may sleep there or at home. The lower portion of the building where the steam engine'and hose cart are kept, are also much improved, and new stalls have been constructed for the horses. At the sound of an alarm, the men who oc cupy the apartments overhead, slide down a pole like greased lightning, instead of re sorting totxe stairway. The harness is attached to the horses by electricity, and the outlit is ready for an emergency in a second. Much tune is devote daily .to practicinﬁ‘the horses in the drill of hitch ing up. hey run to their places in front of the wagon, and when relieved of the harness. hack into their stalls. At res— ent the com any has about 32 memﬁers, with John gteward as foreman, L. Ash croft ﬁrst ass’t foreman, Grant Talcott second ass’t foreman. George Forbes is president, Charles Peterson secretary anm A. Farquhar treasurer. The improve ments were made under the supervision of the chief, Samuel McClelland. Whist Enthusiasts. The M. I’. whist club is the name of a club composed of ladies and gentleman of Olympia, who are endeavoring to secure the best record at Whist playing.
