That City's Defense From
of The Sea "
Before June 30th of the present
year, when the United States
Government shall have complet
ed the extension of the sea-wall
at Galveston, that city will rest
6ecure behind six miles of solid
concrete and be forever immune
from a repetition of the frightful
disaster of September, 1900,
which destroyed 10,000 lives,
rendered homeless 15,000 others,
besides destroying every source
of revenue in that city.
Within four years the city by
itself has built and paid for
four miles of sea-wall, at a cost
of $1,500,000, to protect li'eand
property from future storms.
When the Government wiiose
holdings in Galveston amount to
$10,000,000 completes its ex
tension, the wall will be sixmiles
in lenght, it is sixteen feet wide
at the base, five feet wide at the
top, eighteen feet above mean
low tide, with a granite riprap
extending twenty-seven feet out
on the Gulf side.
An idea of the immensity of the
structure is obtained when it is
stated that to complete it requir
ed 7,500 cars of crushed granite,
5,000 carloads of riprap, 2,500
carloads of sand, 1,350 carloads
of cement, 18,000 round piling
and ten carloads of re-enforcing j
rods. The cars containing this
material would make a train i
nearly a hundred miles in length.
Galveston's importance as a
seaport can be imagined when it
is said that it has sixty-one lines
of steamers plying to foreign
ports, two regular lines of coast
wise vessels to New York and
6even lines of coastwise vessels
to ports in the Gulf. It has bet
ter wharf" facilities than any
other port in the United States.
The wharf frontage is capable of
accommodating one hundred ves
sels loading at one time.
Her exports are greater than
Baltimore's, Philadelphia's or
Boston's, being surpassed only
by New York's and New Orleans.
It is further stated that she took
rank ahead of New Orleans in
1903, as a cotton port and fell
only 100,000 bales behind Liver
pool, the greatest cotton port of
the world. She stands second in
cotton seed products, first in
wheat, third in total breadstuffs.
and fourth in live stock. At the
same time she has advanced from
her rank as eighteenth among
all ocean and gulf ports to thir
teenth place, in imports.
Topeka, Kan., April 17. A
frtrike of the Santa Feboilermak
ers, on the line between Chicago
and Albuquerque, in the interest
of the "closed shop," was inaug
urated yesterday, The union
officials declare that every boil
ermaker on the line, numbering
200, went out, but the railway
officials declare there is no strike.
General Foreman Purcell, for
the road, declared that business
is dull, and work, consequently,
scarce, and that a number of men
had been laid off.
The Santa Fe has but recently
emerged from a fight with its
machinists over the question of
the "open shop," in which the
men got considerably the worst
of it, and the boilermakers de
clare that it is the intention of
the road to force a fight upon
them in order to be free to em
ploy non-union men In other
words, they claim that the road
is going to "scab" the boiler
makers as they have done the
Sullivan In The Ring
Tacoma, April 15. Will Green,
the sporting editor of the Taco
ma Daily News, is said to have
succeeded in matching John L.
Sullivan, the former champion
pugilist, and Charley Mitchell,
the champion boxer of England,
for a twenty round bout under
Marquis of Queensbury rules.
The battle is to occur some time
next month and will likely be
fought in Tacoma.
That Hobb's Case.
In reference to the case of Dep
uty Sheriff Hobbs, who has been
cleared of the charge of murder
ing a British sea captain, the Re
publican states that the fees and
mileage of the eighteen witnesses
who were summoned amounted
to about $700. Vouchers for all
payment will be to the state de
partment and through it will be
forwarded to the British govern
ment, which under the extradi
tion treaty will return the
amount to this country.
The arrest and trial of Deputy
Sheriff Hobbs of Graham county,
on a trumped up charge of hav
ing committed a murder on the
seas when he was not on Salt
water in his life naturally result
ed in the acquitial of Hobbs.
This was one of the most out
rageous affairs which has hap
pened in the territory. I
