, Ass (5., Supt
R. C. Smith. One of the Earliest
White Settlers. ,
There was registered at Young’s hotel
011 Wednesday one of the oldest settlers of
territorial days in the person of R. 0.
Smith, who is now a resident of Tucker, on
the Cowlitz, Where he practices law and
also has an extensive farm.
M r.Smith crossed the plains with George
A Barnes and others from the Missouri
river and landed in Vancouver in 1848. He
‘started alone from Vancouver to the
Sound, and while camping on the Cowlitz
he came across the late A. B. Rabbeson.
Their destinations were both in the same
direction and they discussed and par'
tially arranged for the establishment
ofa sawmill at Tumwater. Smith was de
tained, however, until the spring of 1850
and Rabbeson preceded him. When
Smith arrived in the spring of 1850, he
found Col. Simmons. John Kindred, Ed
mundS lvester and others. Smith was
in searcher" Rabbeson, his intention being
to carry out the arrangements for the erec
tion of the saw mill. Rebbeson had gone
down the sound, and Col. Simmons so
directed Smith. The latter in company
with Mr. Sylvester entered a canoe and
landed on the beach just below First street.
It was then that Mr. Sylvester took the
claim on which is now located the
city of Olympia. Smith remained
with him about two hours. and then
continued down the Sound in search of
Rabbeson. He found him at a place which ‘
he now supposes was the'original site of‘
the present city of Tacoma, but the location
didn’t suit, and he paddled back to Turn
water, stopping about a. week at Fort Nes
,quelly. At Tuniwater, the Puget Sound
Milling company had been formed, and
for three months Smith took charge of this. i
He then returned to the Cowlitz and has
since made that his home.
Doubtful Economy.
Tacoma Globe: The statement has gone
out‘from Olympia that Governor Ferry ex
presses the opinion that the legislature will
make provision for the payment ofinterest
on all certificates of indebtedness given by
the state auditor in lieu of warrants, in
‘ cases where there is no available appropri—
ation. This indebtedness, for services
alone, is estimated to aggregate about SIOO,-
UOO up to the present time; and will con
tinue to accumulate, together with other
certificates for materials, etc., in carrying
out the present plans for continuing work
on the various public institutions. At this
rate the indebtedness will reach an enor~
mous figure, before a remedy can be ap- ,
plied by the legislature, in regular session. 1
The governor’s purpose in constructively
pledging to the holders of this indebted
ness a liberal interest was doubtless the
strengthening of the value of the certifi
cates in financial circles, in order that they
may be hypothecated to better advantage.
To that extent it will probably have a good
effect, enabling thepersons rendering ser—
vice for the state or furnishing supplies to
realize cash for them, without exorbitant
discounts. On the other, hand, the ropri
ety of accumulating this large indjebted
ness, upon which the state is ex )ected to
pay interest, is exceedingly doubtgul in the ,
mind of a student of political economy. ‘
The sum of the indebtedness contem
plated, or the rate of interest, can only be
roughly estimated or conjectured, but the
interest alone will surely extend far into
the thousands, as it isyot likely to be fixed
at less than 6 per cent,a;ud is more likely
to reach 10, w iile persons furnishing sup
plies will naturally'be; inclined to add a
reasonable margin on account of the un
certainty as to interess;; It is questionable,
‘ therefore, whether itgwould not be in the

A Few Sensible Dont’s for Girls.
Music and Drama: Girls, when the true
knight comes along:
Don’t believe implicitly everything he
tells you when he is wooing you.
Don’t let him win your love too easily;
men do not like that; they would rather
have a little trouble togain {you.
Don’t worry the life out 0 him by asking
him, “Why do you love me ‘2” He does
not always have an answer for you.
Don't bother him too much about your
hats and gowns; a. man likes to think you
dress to please him, but he has other
things to talk about.
Don’t ignore the fact when he wears a
new necktie; if a man has a tender spot of
vanity, it is generally his tie.
Don’t, above all, forget to give him a
true woman’s heart,‘ with no reserves for
any one else; love him, be good to him,
try your best to make him happy.

Andrew Johnson was the only president
that ever stood on foreign soil while hold
ing office. It occurred during the frmous
“swing around the circle,” in 1866, while
visiting Niafiara falls, when he went in a
carriage to t e Canadian side. The presi
dent did not think at the time that he had
violated a Eirecedent, and it occurred to
him only w )en he had returned to his
hotel and was alone with his secretary,
who promised to keep the matter secret.

A Row 1n the brltlsh Horse
Guards at Aldershot. ,
The Corporal of the Guard flung
by a Number of Soldiers—A
Severe Lesson.
LONDON, Nov. 27.—There was much ex
citement at the horse guards today upon
receipt of intelligence from Aldershot,
where is situated the great military bar
racks that a spirit of inutinous insubordi
nation prevailed in one regiment stationed
at that place. It is believed this aflair is
not due to any feeling against the army
regulations or rations served, but is en
tirely the result of a feeling entertained
against the privates of the Second battal
ion of the Prince of Wales Leinster regi
ment (royal Canadian) and against a
corporal who had taken advantage of the
little authority given him to make life as
unpleasant as" possible for those placed
under him, by petty tvrranies. The cor
poral rendered himself obnoxious to the
men who made complaint to higher offi
cers which were not noticed. So bitterly
angry did they become against the cor
pora that they concluded the only way to
avenge themselves was to kill him. As
. the corporal was doing his rounds he was
1 seized by some of the men. He attempted
ito call for assistance, but his cries were
quickly silenced bya gag. Despite his
struggles he was dragged to a convenient
spot. a noose thrown around his neck and
he‘was soon suspended in air at the end of
a rope, made fast and the self appointed
executioners decamped. Fortunately the
corporal had been hanging for only a short
time when a sargeant discovered him and
cut the rape. the corporal was almost
dead and it required moststrenuous efforts
on the part of the surgeon and his assist
ants to resuscitate him. It is believed it
will be some time before he can resume his
duties. In any event it is thought he has
been taught a lesson. The military au
