A Learned Rabbi’s Address.
The general thanksgiving service in the
city of Spokane was held in the Audito
rium last Thursday. It is the hand
somest place for public gatherings in the
state. After the singing of a grand chorus,
and the reading of the scriptures by sev
eral clergymen, the Rev. D. E. Schreiber,
the Jeyvish rabbi of the Church of Eman
uel delivered a verv interesting address
which was published at length in the Spo
kane Spokesman of the 27th inst. S o
kane is the only city in the state witfia
Jewish synagogue. Among other thinf‘rs
the learned rabbi said: “We can best cel

while as an American institution Thanks

it was an important institution in ancient
Israel. According to Deuteronomy, 26th
a basket of the rarest ripe fruit was placed
before the altar in the Temple of Jerusa

had first to confess publicly that he owed
his success to God.”

on the Subject.
Editor Tribune:
We are about to elect four new council
men and a mayor. In electing these offi
cers We should carefully consider the men,
their ability and honesty. Two problems
of great importance will confront us the
coming year, our finances and our sewer—
age. Our finances must be handled with
skill or before the year 1893 we are likely to
be in the hands of a receiver. Our sewer
age must be looked after or there will be a
Olympia has always been a healthful
place in which to live. We have always
been able to raise an over-abundant supply
of health—giving foods, especially fruits.
Olympia is noted for her fruits, her healthy
and jovial people. If we expect to remain
a. healthy and jovial people, we must look
carefully into our sanitary conditions. By
looking over the lower part of our city we
find orchards dead, and dying, because of
insufficient drainage. where before the
grading of our streets they were in a vigor—
ous condition. Also we have had more
sickness this year than ever before. The
sickness has been ofa. low type, and some
deaths have cecurred. Our present coun
oil has been accused of inability and dis
honesty. We know they have acted inju
A few months ago a stranger came. to our
city, purporting to be a sanitary engineer.
He called upon some. or all, of the mem
bers of the sewerage committee. but dld
not present himself to the council. He
proceeded to draughting plans for a sewer
age system for Olympia, copied the pro
liles of streets from the engineer’s. oilice,
engaged an engineer to take some levels
to the amount of sl2 and procured blue
print maps to the amount of about S4O.
With this as data. he proceeded to make
plans for a complete sewer system.
He employed a draughtsman at an ex
pense 01‘ about $l5O to make a map of the
city. The map is full of errors, anyone
who is familiar with our city additions can
point out errors at a glance. He has pro
jected lines of sewers on streets where they
run into hollows 60 feet deep. which shows
that Mr. Camtp was not familiar with the
to )ography o the city.

new feature, a“harbor reservoir.” purport
ing that this “harbor reservoir” is now in
use in anumber of cities in Califomia,—

city, as from the best information we can

the report of Engineer A. J. Gillie, whom
we employed to give his opinion upon the
system." (Signed.)

“Gentlemen: In accordance with your
requestlhave examined the plans for a

“The plans are drawn in accordance with
the best modern practice, and are well
adapted to the present needs and future
possibilities of the city. At the same time
economic construction has been constantly
keFt in view. The city while possessed of
s]) endid natural advantages for drainage
is in part deprived of them by the Seventh
street tunnel. Mr. Camp’s solution of this
difficulty is complete.”
“Your earnest attention is solicited for
that portion of Mr. Camp’s report which
quotes from reports of the national board
of health. There is perhaps no higher
authority on sanitary engineering than
that body, and their reports are mostly
worthy of the most careful attention ant

Fourth report on the sewerage of San
Diego, by the board of public works of that
“Our attention was first forced to an in
vestigation oi tne‘causes which have ren—
dered the outfall so obnoxious to the
senses of the people.” “Complaints loud
and deep, were heard on every hand. Land
lords owning houses for half a mile either
side, complained of the loss of their ten
ants, on account of the intolerable stench
arising from the sewer tank, at low tide.
And several cases of illness have been
brought to our notice, arising, as alleged,
from the deadly odors of the harbor'reser
voir." “This sewage tank, or ‘harbor res~
ervoir,” as it is called by its designer, is a
novelty introduced by Colonel Waring,
and we are forced to conclude in regard to
it, after the experience of more than a year,
in patient and costly endeavor by the city
to make the device work as it was in
tended, that it is a total failure.”
"We do not hesitate to assert, after de
liberate investigation, that the entire plan
of the sewage tank and the so~called ‘au
fomatic’ device for emptying it after the
turn of the tide is an unparuonable blun-l
der, unqualified by a single redeeming ‘
feature. It was a mistake which no engi-I
neer of eminence could commit without a
sacrifice of reputatlon. The principle was
wrong, the location an outrage.”
“The 10-called ‘automatic’ gate devised
by W'aring. is quite as monumental a fail
ure as the tank itself.” (Note by writer.-——
, ifr. Camp’s “automatic gate” and reser
voir are the same as Colonel Waring’s.)
' “We have had foisted upon us a. device
,which Colonel .Waring acknowledges, in
‘ his recent sublication, as novel and experi
mental,an which a year’s service has dem
onstrated to be a total failure.”
“The total cost of this pestiference has
been $65,789, including the wharf over the
24-inch pipe.”
In comparing Mr. Camp’s estimalk of
' his reservoir, including the [iume to carry
, the pipe from the shore to the reservoir, we
find his figures $5,000, a ditierence of
Mr. Camp offered these plans to the city
council at their meeting October 20. The
sewer committee urged their purchase at
once, but through the efforts of other mem
bers of the council they were referred to the
sewer committee and the city engineer was
included on the committee. The sewer com
mittee ignored the city engineer and hired
Mr. Grillis to give a report (Mr. Gillis evi
dently had not read the report on the San
Diego system). Our city engineer having
no noticeofu meeting of the sewer com
mittee and being busy with other duties,
did not give them a thorough investiga
tion, but made a statement below the coun
cil that he was not satisfied with all the fee- ‘
tures of the plans, and cited the reservoir.
Mr. Camp used some abusive lantguage by
stating that our city engineer con (i not un
derstand them if he was to explain them to
him for a hundred years. This abuse was
permitted by the council, and then, upon
the motion of Mr. Mnrr, the plans were
purchased October 27, 1891.
The questions arise, why:were the mem
bers of the sewer committee so anxious to
purchase these plans without properly
considering them ‘?
Were the members of the sewer commit
tee pledged beforehand to support the
plans? ~
The writer while in conversation one day
with Mr. Camp, asked him: “Have you
any assurance that your plans Wlll be ac
cepted, or do you expect to present them
on_ _their _merits ?”
He replied with awink: “I am not work
ing in the dark. I know what I 'am doing."
We have during the last year endured too
much of this work. I can cite but few
pieces of work done this summer but what
there has been some "batch” in them.
Some members of the council take pleasure
in riding the hobby that Olympia people
are "kickers.” This is not true. Any er
sons that have endured with the grace that
we have endured are worthy to be classed
among martyrs.
I expect to have something further to
say 011 sewers and drainage. -..

“11-at is Sald of the Proposed l‘ur

in This (Elly.
The Tacoma Globe of today has a col
umn article on “A New Political Combina
tion,” telling of a scheme concocted to
boom Mayor Barry White of Seattle for
the governorship by the proposed purchase
of Governor Ferry’s plant in this city
known as the Daily Olympian, by Col.
Thomas Henderson Boyd. The article is
in the shapeof an interview with :1 Ta
“Will the governdr withdraw entirely
from the ownership of the paper?” asked
the reporter of the Globe.
' “Ostensibly, yes; although he may re
tain an interest, confidentially, and thus
contribute a share toward its support. The
purchase price, $2,500, is nominal—o. mere
bagatelle—in comparison with the egfinse
‘of keeping the craft afloat. The ,g’mrnor
is manifestly tired of footing the bills alone
for the keep ofa white elephant.”
“Granting all this, what particular sig

“Primarily, this: Fred Grant is already
in the swim as a candidate for lieutenant
governor, and has a powerful following
in King. county. That he is the favorite
of the Post-Intelligencer is generally un
derstood. Naturally, the booming of
White for governor by one faction and
Grant by another, both being King county
men, would create dissension in the repub
lican household there, as a blind man
might discern the im practicability of seek
ing to secure both places on the state
ticket. The old cry would be revived in
the other counties that King county wants
the earth, and the eli'ort to secure both
nominations, it” persisted in, would create
a nrejndlce, hazarding any chance that
King county might have securing either.”
“The movement, then 7 is not popular in
Kinlg county?”
“ at so long as Fred Grant is presum
ably in.the race.” This last assertion was
made with emphasis, indicating a strong
conviction as to its accuracy:

In closing the conversation the gentle
man‘added: '
“Whatever conclusions may be reached
by the combination, ifit is efl'ected, it will
create a rumpus in King county. A ma
jority of the republicans there are in favor
of harmonizing all the hitherto discordant
elements, selecting one man for a place on
the state ticket and working for his nomi
nation. Hence, any attempt to revive old
factional differences. or create new ones,
will be frowned upon as detrimental to the
best interests of the party in King county.”

A Sudden Fit 0! Mental Aberration
Ends the Life of Two
MQMINNVILLE, Ore., Nov. 30.—J. A.
Stine, editor of the Whiteson .Advocate,
was shot and instantly killed last night by
H. C. Cook, section boss on the narrow
gauge road. Cook then placed the pistol
to his own head and shot twice, instantly
killing himself.
Stine, Cook, and a German section hand
had been to Amity,a distance of three
miles from Whiteson, and were returning
on foot. Stine was walking about ten feet
in advance of the others. Without warn
ing Cook drew a pistol and fired at Stine.
The ball struck him in the back of the
neck breaking his spinal column. Cook
then turned the pistol towards himself and
fired a shot into his own breast. Then he
placed the pistol to his temple and sent a
second shot through his brain. No cause
is known for the tragedy and it is ac
counted for on the theory that Cook was
seized with a sudden lit of mental aberra
tion. He has acted Yeculiarly for several
days past. The men mve always been ap
parently good friends. Both were about
48 years of age, and veterans of the
civi war. Stine leaves a wife and children.
