KNAACK AND KLONDIKE. Itock Idand EUer Captain Writes from Seattle. Seattle, Wash., Nov. 15 Editor of The Aeols: The Klondike boom is on. Evervtin? is lively here, es pecially in tho Klondike movement. About evory other person I meet is going there in the spring. Some are departing and coming all the time. Saturday last the steamship, City of Scattlo, camo down from Juneau, Alaska, and hnd a large number of Klocdikers on board. Some of them bad been into the gold Holds, but the majority of thorn had started late and were unable to cross the pass and had to como to Seattle and wait for spring. One of the returning miners, a middle-aged German, with whom I got into conversation, tola me he had not been in Klondike, but on Stuart river ho and three others had struck it rich, and bo had returned for food. Numerous vessels are being constructed here for the Yukon and other rivers np there, but I do not like thoir style as well as ours on the Mississippi, and I think when I gat my boat, the City of Rock Island, along side of them, she will be the queen of the fleet. more are ail sorts 01 schemes and movements on foot here regarding the business up in tho cold region, but as yet I have heard of nothing which in my estimation will work as well as that of our Rock Island peo pie. I am well satisfied with my coming out here. I gather lots of valuable iniormation every day, and will be qnite well posted by the time we get reaay to start. William C. Ksaack. It Hit! Ui Spot.

SttB 2 I eTTAKXiH 1 1 T a BRIDGE, BAR AND HARBOR Kb la ear Edwards Taika of What la Beta , DmalOaluir. j The government engineers heartily endorse tho plan of the railroad im provement for the ehortecing of the river bridge at Qaincy by filling ia unaer the onage as lar out as the big wooded sandbar. ' It will narrow the river,' so that there will be more water in the channel, and will hold the big bar right where it is, instead of allowing i to waah down into the harbor. Secretary of War Alger will of coarse be guided by the engineers tn passing on the petition of the railroad company for permission to mi up that much or the river, and with the engineers in favor of it there is little doubt but that the desired permission will be granted. The proposition, cf the railroad company to fill in nnder the bridge,11 said Capt. Samuel Edwards, of this city, the officer in charge of that sec tion of the river, to a Qaincy Whig reporter, "is right in line with the plans of the government for the im provement of Qaincy harbor, and in stead 0! being a possible injury to this harbor it would be a positive and decided benefit. It would be accomplishing by the construction of what you might call a high dam what the engineers propose to ac complish by a small dam." 'When a bar is too large to le dredged away,11 went on Capt. Ed wards, "and is in a convenient place to be left, the policy of the engineers is to hold it. The plan for disposing of the bar at Qainoy is to tie it to the bay island by a dam and allow the insido to fill np, thus making it a part of the island. Then protect the outside edge by riprap, and that bar is fixed permanently. The proposl rion of the railroad company is right in line with our plans, for they also propose to make the bar a part of the island. When I was in Rock Isl and, Col. King, who is in charge of this division of the river, asked mo about the railroad project, and I told him just what I have told you. If I thought the filling in would at all in terfere with navigation I would not think of endorsing it. Filling ia ander the bridge will at least hold all of that portion of the bar above the bridge right where it is. and we would have no further trouble with it." . i: V Capt. Edwards expressed this opin ion while standing on the new dike which he is building across the rivor irom Qumcy. It is 1,800 feet long, and la 1,600 feet below the old dike. The purpose of its construction is to throw more of the current over to the Illinois side and wash out the sand bar which now obstructs the steamboat landing. Work on the new dike was commenced a weok ago, and it will be finished in an other week. It will cost about $5,000, bet none of it will come out of the $10,C00, appropriated fur areagiug the harbor. It is a part of the general plnn, and the cost will bo taken out of the general attpropria' tion. Five thousand dollars were spent last fall in dredging that bar. and the other f 5,000 will be spent in dredging what sand may not be scoured out by the current deflected to this :de by the new dike. iae Whig says: "Through the courtesy of Uow E. Gwinn, a Vhg man met Capt. Ed wards on the now dike yesterday. ana xouna him a most pleasant gen tleman. courteous and accommodat ing, and willing to give all informa tion in. his poMossion. Ho has been in charge of this section of the river tor three years, and has his head. quarters on the United States steam er. Coal Bluff.11 Capt. Edwards was entertained by the Qaincy Commer. cial club the other afternoon. The Greatest Dlwevcr Yt. W. M.

' ' Tho preacher continued, his story be canio more piteous and harrowing, and Mark Twain Eaid, "I'll spare, two of those bills." But still the talo of woo went on, the agony accumulating and accumulating, until Mark Twain exclaimed: "For goodness' sake send that plate round, so mat 1 can pour my sympathy into it I'll give all four bills, and I'll write a check too." But the lecturer rather overdid it "Ho Went on talking anrl Tnll-itur said Hark Twain as ho told the story, "and as he talked my enthusiasm calmed and calmed, and the red ' flush nf mv sympathy became paler and palor.

It happened on a Eidge avenue street car early one evening last week, says th9 Philadelphia Record. He was rather nice looking fellow, very neatly dressed and apparently on th? alert to be gallant to any lady who might hap pen to run across his path. Uis oppor tunity came along very shortly when a pretty young woman sat down beside him. He took a sly, unobtrusive survey of her (ace and figure, and in tho course cf his observations his eye rested upon a dainty bit of linen and laco lying on the floor near tho edge of her gown. Tho young lady hail dropped her hand kerchief, thought tho gallant, and he promptly proceerSed to restore it to bfer. Ho stooped over and grasped the deli cate fabric. The next moment there wa3 a slight ripping noise, and the cal- lant, blushing furiously, released his hold upon. the bit of lace edged linen. The yotmg woman looked daggers at him, while the other rnm-Bgers snick ered. "I aw beg iardon," stammer' ed the unhappy young man. "I didn't hnow it was your aw I thought it was yocr handkerchief."
