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
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.

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.

All About the Value of a Silver
now the Next Governor of Ohio
Enllglltened an Ignorant
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?

The New System of Drainage 1n
A Heaulllul and Complete Map
of the City and its A1!-
dlnons With no
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.
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

ments were made under the supervision of

I read with much interest last evening,
the article in THE TRIBUNE on “Our 0115’
tom House." It reminded me of the early
days in the fifties. I became acquainted
with Simpson P. Moses, the first collector,
in 1853. His residence at that time was on
Main street where the Talcotts live at pres
ent. Mr. Moses was a fearless man and
was in those days known as an Old Line
Whig. T. I‘.
