The Good It is Doing in Olympia and
the Work of “The Tribune.”
Editor Tribune:
In compliance with the request of fellow
graduates of the Keeley Institute, as well
as others who do not need the attention 01
l the Keeley faculty but are desirous of fur
l thering the good work now going on, I sub
-3 niit the following with no thought of com
:pensation other than the happiness that
comes of seeing mankind disenthralled oi
the demon of whom I know so much. THE
TRIBUNE of this city has taken the initiative
in a work of benevolence that deserves the
support of all philanthropically inclined
people in placing at the corner of Main and
Fourth streets a deposit box for contribu
utions, however small, for the benefit of
worthy indigents at the Keeley Institute.
The sponsors of this charitable undertaking
are prominent and trustworthy gentlemen
of the community who lead in intelligence
as well as wealth, thus lending sincerltv of
purpose in the ends to be attained
and confidence in the ultimate re
demption of .victims of alcohol
and opium. No matter how sincere in
his desire to overthrow the enem ' he may
be, the convivialist and opium gabltuate
finds it extremely difficult to negotiate a
loan in order to defray the expenses inei~
dent to the Keeley treatment, and the de
plorable facts that patients are not treated
gratuitously at that institution, effectually
debars the indigent from salvation. In re
viewing the results of the cures thus far
obtained, one cannot fail, on close obser
vation to note the efficiency of the treat
ment and that while almost every variety
of temperament has been contended with,
all who have faithfully followed the in~
struction of Dr. Watt, have bid farewell to
Bacchus and are a changed and better
class of men. Rumors of my having par
taken of liquor since my cure have fre
quently come to me. Such reports ema
nate from paradoxical benevolent friends.
I can afford to smile, for they will recoil
on the stupid authors.
The Play of “U & I.”
In the very funny play of “U & I.”
which will be given at the opera house,
Saturday night, the New York Herald
sags: “Laughable situations follow each
ot er with such rapidity that the auditor’s
attention is directed from one piece of non
sense to enjoty another over the many com
plications o the plot. The organization
besides Kelly and Daly, includes the cute
and winsoine English comedienne from
the Alhambra, London, Georgie Denin, for
the past four seasons leading soubrette of
the Casino Opera company; Adele Este,
the gifted and accomplished vocalist;
Flora Veldrun, Harry Kelly, Lizzie Ennis,
Charles F. Walton. Josie Fairbanks,
Charles F. Wilson, Ida Fairbanks, and
pretty little Aimee Angeles, the youngest
premier danseuse in the world. This
clever array of artists will have the assist
ance of a chorus of beautiful young ladies
in a series of novel specialties.”
‘ Presence of Mind.
N. Y. Recorder: Presence of mind and
quick wit saved an uptoWu young lady the
other night from an impertinent and an
noying stranger. She is comely, of good
figure and good height, ‘lt was about -10
o’clock and she was oingeast on Thirty
fourth street from %roa}dway. The man
walked alongside of heffand tried to peer
into her face. She moored ofi and the 'man
moved on. He waited» under the next
lam ppostond attempM‘lw speak- to. her
but she quickened her pace and hurried
On the corner of Fifth avenue and Thir
ty-fourth street stood another man. He
looked like a gentleman, and the young
lady had an inspiration. Walking quickly
up to him she held out her hand and re
marked londly: “I’m so glad to see you,
Mr. Dobbins. Mother told me you were in
town and I hoped you would call.”
, All this she rattled off quickly and ner
vouslyl while astonishment was depicted
upon the face of the gentleman whom she
had accosted. '
The ruse worked, however, for the crea- ;
ture who was following shot across the
street and disappeared rapidly down Fifth
avenue. Then she explained to the gen
tleman that she had been insulted, was
afraid, apologized and quickly moved off
toward her home on Park avenue.
What Most Men Think of Women.
Albany Sun: That women hate three—
fourths of their own sex.
That women are charming in proportion
to their amiabilty.
That a woman who sneers at the down
fall of a sister is not a saint herself.
That a woman who flirts on the street or
street cars is either silly, insane or not re
That a woman should know how to cook.
Whether she has any immediate need for
the accomplishment or not.
That the woman who blondines her hair
unconsciously weaves much of her life his
tory in the golden meshes for all men to
read. "
That the ways of that woman are past
finding out who rails against the male sex
for chewing 10 cent plugs of tobacco and
expectoratiug on the sidewalk, yet who
goes herself and deliberately wipes up that
same sidewalk with a $25 or SSO gown that
. her father or husband earned by the sweat
of his brow. .
Tailoring Announcement.
James P. Hixson, representing the old
and well known tailoring house ofJ H.
Tobin,of San Francisco, has arrived in
Olympia and will remain a few days and
can be seen at the Olympia hotel. He has
on exhibition a complete line of sample
goods of gentlemen’s wear. There are
many adventurers soliciting orders for
clothes who are not tailors and cannot
take a correct measure, subjecting thepub
lie to annoyance and loss. It is hoped,
therefore. those wishing first-class clothes
will give Mr. Hixson their orders. He is
well known as a skillful and scientific
tailor on the Pacific coast for the past six
teen years, and he represents the best and
most widely known tailoring establishment
1 on the coast. dll-2td
A Water Company’s I'ower.
As a result of the suit of the Tacoma
Hotel company, vs. the Olympia Light &
Power company, the supreme court yester
day reversed the judgment. The hotel
company had run behind in its water rent,
and the water company threatened to shut
ofl‘ the supply. An issue then arose as to
the authority of the water company to de
prive the hotel of the supply, and the su
preme court held that it has such author
-ItyY under its‘ rules, which the court also
held' are reasonable.

Extract from a Pamphlet by Gen
eral Hazard Stevens.
The Vlewni of General Sherman on
Olympia as a Natural Strat
egic and Commer
. clul Point.
General Stevens in his admirably illus
trated pamphlet on Olymphia says:
By an overwhelming vote of the people
under the provisions of the constitution,
Olympia was made the permanent capital
of the state, and cannot be divested of it
except by an amendment of the constitu
tion itself. ’
Congress has endowed the newstate with
one .hundred and thirty-two thousand
acres of land for the erection of suitable
capital huildmgs, and this princely grant,
worth today one and a half million dol
lars, and rapidly increasing in value, in
sures the erection of a capitol worthy a
state of such,bouudles resources and mag
nificent future.
The capital ofsuch a state as Washing
,ton would alone suffice to build up no
‘mean city" The permanent residence of
the governor and state officers—the seat of
the United States land and surveyor—gen
eral’s offices, the place of meeting of the
legislature, the supreme court and many
state boards—must attract a considerable
population. Ollympia, too, is a city of
iomes, of schoo s, of gardens. and fruit
trees and shade trees, a city which draws
visitors, and attracts families of means
and refinement, families with children to
school and bring up, as a place of resi
There is no reason to doubt that Olympia
in the next ten years will become a city of
50,000 population. She may not become a
great sea-port and commercial center like
Seattle or Tacoma, but she will be second
to them alone.
Perhaps no more satisfactory evidence
can be found than the opinions of men of
known ability and wide experience, and
certainly none are keener nor more obser
vant than the managers of the great rail
road systems. The act that so many lines
have made Olympia their objective shows
clearly the court ence these able men have
in her future growth. ‘
Another opinion, prophetic and remark
able because made ata time when the town
was extremely dull and depressed, being
completely side—tracked by the Northern
Pacific railroad, was uttered by Gen. Sher
man in a brief speech to the citizens, when
he visited Olympia some years ago. Gen.
Sherman then told his somewhat surprised
auditors that Olympia was a natural strat
egic and commercial point, and that one of
t 1e greatest cities on the Sound would one
day grow up there.

brought suit for the payment of bills.
Mr. Rathbun, who was formerly owner of
the Review, held the contract for the
county printing. Mr. Price afterward pur
chased the paper issuing it under the name
of the Olympia Capital. Price and Rath
bun worked in harmony for awhile, but
there was finally a misunderstanding and
Rathbun left orders with the commis
sioners not to give Mr. Price an; more co y.
Rathbun then let the Stan ard do the
printing. The countiy commissioners at
that time took a hen 1n the matter and
held that when Mr. Rathbun sold the
paper his contract ceased. They called for
new bids and the contract was awarded to
THE TRIBUNE. While the Standard was
doing some of the printing, it seems that
Mr. Price also did it under. his claim.
Rathbun now sues for $3,600. and Mr.
Price for $2lO. '
