tions so far as regular naval vessels are
concerned, have been made as comglete as
possible. The bureau of naval intelligence

Francisco. Activity is also displayed in

tions have taken place between the army

the two forces in the event of trouble. It
has been represented that the army will be
able to furnish on short notice 150,C30 men
for transportation, either from San Fran
cisco or Galveston. Naval officials say
fully this number of men wlll be required.

THE N. P; 7‘ SUBSIDY.
A TALK WITH THE ATTORNEY 0N
THE SUBJECT.
He Tells tlm Reason Why the Work
Was Delayed and Says Sun
Will Be Entered.
TACOMA, Dec. 19.»—1n an interveiw with
James M. Ashton, attorney for the N. I’.
Railroad company, relative to the susbsidy
for that road in Olympia, Mr. Ashton says:
“The delay in running trains into Olym
pia was caused by the action of the people
there. In justice to the railroad it should
be said that it was not through - its neglect
that the road was not completed at the
stipulated time. We agreed to have trains
running there at the time specified, with
the‘ agreement that we were to receive free
terminal grounds and free right of way.
The work was delayed by injunctions and
legal proceedings caused by the actions of
the people themselves. If the bond and
subscription were all paid the company
would still have lost $40,000 by building the
line. The subscriptions amounted at the
time to $25,000 and there is a bond for
$30,000, in view of the fact that this bond
had been given, the company, upon the
recommendation of Chief Engineer Ken
drick and myself, out thempromised sub—
scription down from SSO, 0 to $25,000.
Much of this was in land, and owing] to de
preciation in values it is probable t at the
subscriptions would not amount to much
over SIS,CC’J now. The bond for $30,000
was given by thirty gentlemen who each
pledged himself to give SIOOO. Each man
is responsible indiv duallly, We propose,
of course, to demand tle money. The
only way to get it is to sue forit. We will
bring suit against every man on the bond
and on‘ the subscription list, if necessary.”
MUSICAL WELLS IN TACOMA.
Inhale and Immune Alr Currentl—
Muslcnl Attachments.
TACOMA, Dec. lit—Since the shock of
earthquake a couple of weeks ago, a well
110 feet deep on the premises of Henry
Lobe, in the North End, has been blowing
out wind at a terrific rate. About a year
ago the well acted in a similar manner. At
times the air is sucked down in the well at
almost as great a velocity as it is forced out
at other times. A well ninety feet deep,
'owned by Henry) Henderson 1n the south
end of the city, eyond the éixth addition,
is affected by the forcing out and sucking
in of wind in a similar manner. Mr. Hen—
derson has attached mouth organs and fish
horns to the curb of his well, and loud
though discordant music result from the
action of the wind. Some believe the tides
cause the action of the air in these wells,
but no continued observations have been
made to determine the probable real cause.

committee on commerce changed to com
mittee on rule,s state and‘ foreign com
merce. A concurrent resolution was agreed

Wednesday 23d, inst., until Tuesday the
sth proximo. The method of designating
the chairman of any committee was
changed in this: formerly in the event of
the death of the chairman the second mem
ber succeeded to the office. This is changed
by giving the appointment of chairman
to the speaker. Springer, of Illinois,
suggested that the designation of the
qluadro-ceutennial committee should be
cianged to the committee on Columbian
Exposition. The suggestion was agreed
to and the report ‘then adopted; ‘

that referring to the recess resolution and
to the announcement of committees by the
speaker.
