A Concise Review of
the Present and Fu~
ture of the Capi~
tal City.
Olympia’s progress has not been fast,
but it has been marked and its people have
shown a spirit of enterprise that is lack
ing in much larger cities. It is not neces
sary to review the past. The present tells
the tale. Twenty years ago its people
were assured that the Northern Pacific
would run its trains into this city but the
inevitable took them around to Tacoma,
and the growth and prosperity which that
city now enjoys is What Olympia looked
for. Disappointed but not disheartened
our people were bound to have a railroad,
and each Thursday, which was termed
“field day,” the merchants, lawyers, pro
fessional men and everybody put aside
their regular business and with pick and
shovel cheerfully and energetically work
ed away until a road bed was completed.
The housewives and daughters were on
hand too and prepared a dinner which was
disposed of with more relish than many a
Christmas fare. The county was bonded
to purchase the rails and rolling stock and
when the first engine ran over the narrow
gauge road that connected Olympiawith the
Northern Pacific at Te nino, there was
more rejoicing manlfested than when the
overland trains of the Northern Pacific
came puffing into the city nearly twenty
years after. The people didn’t seek the
railroads after that, but in the last few
yearsa steady growth has taken hold of
the city, which has entirely transformed
it from an easy going, quiet place of 3,000
to a busy, bustling city of 8,500, with rail
roads at its door, and the hum of industry
within. The change which has marked its
appearance within the last two years is al
most incredible. Streets have been opened
and [graded, sidewalks laid, railroads and
bridges built, and dwellings and business
blocks erected in every section of the city.
Within two years more than $200,000 have
been expended for street improvements,
and nearly 1,100 new buildings have been
erected. The total cost of imposing
brick and stone business blocks aggregate
over $3,000,000. The growth of fruit for
canning and shipment as an industry
is one that affords themost alluring in<
ducements.
The climate is temperate—itis not tropi
cal, hence corn is not a staple, but grows
finely for use as a. green vegetable. Sweet
potatoes also need more intense heat, but
with these exceptions every variety of veg
etables thrive. Potatoes are particularly
fine, as well as turnips, beets, carrots, pars
nips, peas, beans, cabbages and snow white
cauliflower.
The city of Olympia contains an excel
lent collegiate institute, two public school
houses unexcelled in architectural beauty
in the state of Washington. Nature has
indeed been generous in her gifts to Thurs
ton county, and especially so as to the re- 1
gion of peace and plenty, of which the;
prosperous city of Olympia is the hub. 3
Nestling in the heart of such rich and ‘
favored surroundings, and her interests
and welfare carefully guarded by shrewd
and wide—awake citizens, it goes without
saying that the Capital City will go ahead
and mayhap become one of the greatest
trade centers and shipping points on the
Pacific slope.
In this necessarily brief article we have
endeavored to convey to the reader an idea
of the location. surroundings, resources
and prospects of Olympia and district. We
now beg to call attention to a review of
the leading institutions, most prominent
mercantile houses and representative in
dustries of the city.

Jonu L. Wilsgfi on flock.
Washington Post: John L. Wilson of
the State of Washington, and wife arrived
at the Riggs last evening. Mr. Wilson
does not look on the late elections in the
light of a republican Waterloo, but thinks
his party won enough in Pennsylvania
and Ohio, with partial success in other
states. to preserve the statu quo.
“It leaves things just as they were,” he
said, “and I can’t see how, it can be figured
out differently, except that in Ohio, the
only state where there was a sharp contest
on national issues, the republicans came
out on top.
”The state of Washington may be put
down as safe to stay in the republican fold.
Some democratic missionaries were among
us lately and talked some stuff about
mortgaged homes in one of the most pros
perous counties in the United States. It
is a bad year for the calamity howlers out
our way. The farmers have made enor
mous crops and are realizing good prices.
The democratic proselylers struckafioor
country for converts when they tackle( the
thrifty citizens of our great state";

'l‘ncomn’s New Park.
It. is said the people of Tacoma. want to
make a. public park of the entire embank
ment from the city hall down to the steam
beat wharf. Paul Schulze says in sub
stance, that speakin for himself, he is in
favor of makinga tgestutiful park of the
stretch of embankment from the city hall
to the Tacoma Land Company’s new hotel.
The Land 00 contemplated layingout apark
of its own adjacent to the hotel, and if the
city instead of spending its money on the
park near Point Defiance, would expend it
on a park of this kind, it would be of more
benefit—for the present, at least. The first
obj ect a stranger sees on leaving the steam
‘ er is the unsightly blufi', and were a park
1 put in it would create a good impression
‘ with visitors.
