012 ‘fMPIA' TRIBUNE
OLYMPIA. WASHINGTON. TUESDAY. DECEMBER 29, 1891
A BIG BLAZE
Prevented by Presence of Mind of
The Jackson Brothers.
An alarm of fire was turned in at 7:30
this morning from box 43, corner Third
and Main streets, caused by the frantic
cries of fire, yelled by, many mouths occu
pying quarters in the Los Angeles lodging
house. 208 Third street, near the corner
of Columbia. of which Renaldo Moses is
the host. It seems that John Jackson and
his brother Carl, two sunny Italians, are
quartered in the last rear room on the sec
ond floor of the Los Angeles, overlooking
tide water. At nine o’c ock Jackson the
elder was awakened by the wind, laying
its lash right and left, to find the room
rather uncomfortably filled with smoke for
breathing purposes, to see also, through
the opaque atmosphere. small chunks of
fire dropping from the aperture where the
stovepilpe probes the ceiling. Jackson
jumpe like a jaguar from the jungle on
a trembling giraffe, from the bed. wo’ke
his brother, and the two, after getting
into boots and breeches, in the mean
time giving the alarm, got on
to the back porch, finding there
fortunately a cask of water with several
buckets alongside. With commendable
Eresence of_ mind one of the men scram-l
led onto the roof of the house and the
other gassed up bucket after bucket filled
with t efiuid antagonistic to fire. Half a
dozen of these poured down the mouth of
the flaming funnel, effectually squelched
the embryotic blaze and the fire depart
ment that, was by this time. with its usual
alertness, on the ground, did not go into
active servlce.
It’s a very fortunate thing that John
Jackson happened to awake just as he did.
Fifteen minutes more and the fire fiend,
aided by the whistling wind would have
gained probably an undisputed sway with
the result of obliterating in that quarter of
Olympia anything in the shape of habita
blehouses.

A rightful Fall.
Oscar Quale, a young man employed by
Eugene Horton, fell from the roof of an
east side residence yesterday, and received
frightful injuries. He fell on a picket
fence, striking his abdomen. and doubling
him up. Mr. Horton had the young man
conveyed: to: his home and his con
dition is critical. It was the same house
from which a painter fell last summer, and
died a few months ago.
Uncertain Abstracts.
The case of the Olympia Abstract and
Title Insurance Company vs. A, W Guislu
was appealed from Justice Rathbun’s court
to the superior court yesterday. The com—
pany furnished Guislujwith an abstract of
title to some property on Capital Hill
from which certain instruments of recorci
were omitted. Guislu refused to pay for it
because it was not an abstract and the
company sued to recover the price
charged.

Walker, in speaking of the log situation
says that the Puget Mill company received
orders from headquarters in San Fran
cisco not to have more than 8,000,000 feet
on hand on Januarylst, 1892. and that

' Dangerous Roadbeds.
The Steamer Colby Sinks at Horns
Dock—The ,Mornlnz Train to‘
Bortland Withdrawn—Most Se
vere Storm Here Slnce August l,‘
1882: l
The storm which raged last night was
the most severe in this section of the coun
try since August 1, 1882. The wind lashed
structures of every kind. Trees were
blown down, woodsheds toppled over, and
houses rocked like cradles. Wires were
down in every direction, railroad traffic de
layed. washouts made the tracks unsafe,
and fallen trees added danger to the rails.
Many people were actually scared, trees
‘ were uprooted in all parts of the city, bulk
‘heads caved In, and things today wore a
generally dilapidated appearance. Two
immense gulches have been eaten into Co
lumbia street leading to the Northern Pa
cific depot, and two trees were torn from
the high embankment and laid across the
street. Signal Observer Olney says the
storm was so severe that _
ALL wraas ARE. DOWN,
and he is unable to obtain reports from
outside districts. While the wind blew at
a good rate after nifht fall, it increased at
1:30, and ranged al the wai from 33 to 40
miles an hour. At 8 o’cloc this morning
it was still blowing at 33 miles. In 1889
the velocity reached 34 miles, but on
August Ist, 1882, it was 48 miles, the
highest on record in this vicinity. This,
by the way, is only a zephyr on the plains
of Dakota or Kansas.
The most serious obstructions were en
‘ countered on the
l NORTHERN merino RAILROAD.
i The line was blocked with fallen trees
and washouts, and the 1 a. m. train for
‘ Portland failed to come through. In fact,
so dangerous was the road be left, that
Superintendent McCabe, who was in the
, city this morning, has decided to take the
1 o’clock a. m. train off altogether and
make other arrangements for reaching
Portland. Near the Nesqually is an im-‘
mense embankment nearly 40:) feet long
and about 60 feet high, which the constant
rains have rendere unsafe. In order to
avoid a calamity the night train will be
withdrawn for the present. During the
interval Pfiissengers for Portland may take
the Port ownsend Southern train at 9:40
and connect at Tenino with the Northern
Pacific road. ,
DAMAGE on ma WATER.
Along the water front small crafts were
barn from their moorings and lashed
against the shore. The water was high.
and beat severely against the wharves. A
small steam tug, the Eliza. A., hailing
glues unknown. is on beam’s end, at,
chmsider’s wharf. F"
’ THE COLBY smxs.
A small slender masthead above water
at the north step of Horr’s dock this morn
in% was all that was visible of the steamer
’Co by, which made its first run to Shelton
yesterday after having undergonee thor
ough overhaulinig at the shops of the Gym
pia Foundry an Machine company.
New engines were placed in her, and yes«
terday she looked as slick and clean as a
new coin from the mint. She returned
from Shelton last night at Horr’s dock.
While the wind was b owing so furiously,
the tide was also receding, and it is sup
gosed the rope became entangled and tilted
er over. With the inconiinF tide she
rapidlgifilled and now lies ontie bottom.
Theo cers think that but little damage
will be done, and eflorts will be made to
raise her at once. The proprietors have
recently expended SISOO on her.
FALLING TREES.
0n the west side several trees were blown
‘down and the new school house West
Fourth street came within an ace of being
demolished. At about 7 o’clock this morn
ing residents oflthe neighborhood were
alarmed by a terrible crash. A large
fir 254 feet through, had fallen across t e
woo shed along side the school building
and cut it as cleanly in two as a whistle.
Ten feet more to the north and it would
have worked equal danger to the school
building. The wind abated this morning
with intervals of rain and sunshine. .
ELSEWHERE.
The prospects are that near Cle—Elum, on
the other side of the mountains, people will
experience the greatest depth of snow in
several years. At Fish lake. twenty miles
above there. the snow is eleven feet deep on
a. level. At Lake Cle-Elum it. is eight feet,
at Easton seven feet and at Cle-Elum
about two and one-half feet. The snow is
still falling and slightly drifting.
The weather can itions and general fore
casts for this morning from San Francisco
were as follows: The storm is advancing
from the ocean toward Western Washing
ton. and rains and brisk to high southeast
winds prevail on the Oregon and Washing
ton coasts, a maximum velocity of forty
miles per hour being reported from Fort
1 Canby. The rain in Western Oregon and
‘ Western Washington willextend eastward
over these states and into Northern Cali
fornia. The Sacramento and San Joaquin
valleys will also doubtless receive some
rum.
I’. O. Sullivan on Politics.
P. O. Sullivan, of'l‘acorna,deputy United ‘
States attorney of the state and ex-member‘
of the constitutional convention. in an in
terview with the editor of the Puyallup
Herald said: “It is a conceeded fact that
Tacoma is to have the next congressman
if they can but agree on a man. and they
are likely to do that. Baker. Tacoma a
youthful political leader, is likely to be first
n the race. and will probably be nominated.
though there are several other candidates
spoken of. He is a good representative of
‘ western pluck and industry, and is deserv
ing of the choice. Senator Allen I regard
as especially fitted for the goaltion of cir
cuit judfge and will undou tedly make a
creditab e name for himself should he re
ceive and accept the judicial office talked
of in the papers.” '
Want to Kill the Czar.
Sr. PETERBBURG, Dec. 29.—The police
have made a large number of arrests in
Russian Poland as the result of the dis
covery of a secret league, the object of‘
which was to assassinate the czar. It is
thought that many persons connected with
the conspiracy have taken friightat the
knowledge of their plans an will seek
‘sefety by fleeing from the country. The
authorities have ordered the frontier
closely watched and it is believed further
arrests will shortly be made on the fron
tier.

A fhousand Earths 1n One of

A 01111qu Chapter by :1 Famous
French Astronomer Now In Ken.
What Jupiter Looks Like In the
Hoaven- at the Pro-ant 'l‘lme.
Cammille Flammurion writes thus in
the current issue of the Arena:
Ofall the floating islands which com
pose the celestial archipelago to which the
earth belongs, the planet consecrated from
the remotest age to Jupiter the mighty,
king of gods and men, is the Vastest, the
most important and the most majestid.
This colossal world of Jupiter has a diam
eter of about 88,000 miles and which lur
passes that 'of our earth by more than
eleven times.
1234 TIMES 01m SIZE.
The c ircumference of Jupiter’s world at
the equator is about 275,000 miles. The
volume of the giant exceeds that of the
earth by 1234 times.
This immense globe seen at the distance
at which we are situated from the moon
would appear to us with a. diameter about
forty times larger than that of our satel
lite and the sdrt‘ace of its disk would em
brace on the celestial vault an extent 1800
times greater than that of the full moon.
A main TRACK 02m THOUSAND MILLION
MILES LONG.
This giant of the worlds travels through
space, accompanied by a. retinue of four
satelhtes, at a. mean distance of 496.000,[ 33
miles from the sun, and which is more
than five times greater than that of the
saith from. t_he samefl
Tue orbit is more than 1,000,000,000 miles
in extent, and through this it passes in
4432 days,or 11 years, 10 months and 17
days. Such is the year of this immense
globe.
SWIFT nnvownous.
In order to complete its entire orbit dur
ing this period it speeds around the sun
with a. velocitv of 700,000 miles a day. or a.
little more 1; mn eight miles a. second.
This a. little less than half the velocity of
the earth in its orbit. But it revolves on
its axis with a very great swiftness, for its
day and night com ined only last about
nine hours and fifty-five minutes.
CURIOUS mars.
In other words the inhabitants of J [Titer
enjoy only five hours of real day twi ight
included. “If,"sags Kant, “uninhabitant
of Jugiter should ie in childhood. having
lived ut one year on that planet, he woul
be as old as 8. child who should. die on
gut globe at the age of 11 years and 314
a a.
‘yThe terrestrial child would have lived
about 103,968 of J WWI-’5 days, and the
ghfldHOu Jupiter, ,329 of the eurth’fl
aye.
AGE OF JUPITER.
It is probable that this ‘globe, although
created before the earth, has preserved ts
pristine heat much longer by reason of its
volume and mass. In this characteristic
heat sufficiently intense to prevent all men
ifestations of life? And is this globe still
at the present time not in the state ofa
luminous star. but in the condition Offl.
dark and burning one, entirely liquid. or
scarcely covered with a first hardened
crust, as the earth was before life began to
appear on its surface ?
Is 11 KABITABLE?
Or, indeed, is this colossal planet in that
condition of temperature through which
our own world passed through the prlma?
geriod of its geololfical epochs when 11 e
egan to show ltse I" under strange forms,
as animal and vegetable beings o astonish.

tempests o the newborn world? The last
is the most rational conclusion that we can
I draw from the most recent and exact ob
servations to which we are indebted for
what we know of the present state of this
vast world.
IS 11' munnn‘n?
Whether J u'piter be inhabited now,
whether it was yesterday, or whether it
will be tomorrow, is of l ttle consequence
to the grand, eternal philosophy of nature.
Life is the object of its formation, as It, was
the object of the earth’s formation. There
in is everything. The moment, the hour,
is of little account.

age and vapors of the lower strata, feeding
on the aerial fluid itself, resting on the

Jovian heavens.
A WORLD FOE A JOVE.
That would not be a disagreeable abode,

What is Going on in the Puget
Sound Mills.
A Big Tree Found Near Buckle! by
:1 Well Known Lumberman—An
Important Meeting In Tnc‘omu
__'l‘oday.
TACOMA, \Vush., Dec. 29.—Wet weather
prevails and rain has got the drop on the
Puget Sound district. In some of the log
ging camps work is going on slowly on ac
count of the soft condition of the earth.
Here and there mills are busy, but the
most of them are not working either full
time or full-handed. Loggers are bulling
the market, and have succeeded in some in
stances in forcing prices up a dollar. The
superintendent of the Tacoma Lumber &
Manufacturing company, says that
he had recently bought 600,000 feet of
No. 1 logs at $6.50. This ‘is. however. not
the top notch, and it is safe to say that
prlces will hold firm for 30 days, and may
continue so all winter, unless the numer
ous citizens of the woods that are now idle
conclude to go to logging. If they do, the
supply will soon exceed the demand. and
prices will drop again.
F. M. Wade, who used to be with the So
per Lumber company, and I. K. Martin et
al has found a big lir tree up in the woods
near Buckley, which he says measures 32
feet in circumference as far up as a man
can reach. The gentlemen who know Mr.
Wade know that he would not makea mis
take in a measurement. He is now the
superintendent of the logging department
of the St. Paul & Tacoma umber Com
pany. His records show that their loss
contain on an average over 900 feet. How s
that compared with 102 feet that a Michi~
gun lOfiging district rc£orts ?

There is a meeting in Tacoma today of
the directors and members of committees
connected with the Lumber Manufac
turer's Association of the Northwest.
They will discuss pertinent questions of

Railway quotations on (reifiht might
justly be quoted a little unsta 16 at the

to come in again. The rate now made by
