in the town, but is simply it wad of
ammunition for the Tacoma schomers
to clip out and send to the Bishops
who are soon to vote upon the rubs
Joct. The real status of the case is
about this: The local members of
the conference commission stand two
for Port Townsend and two for Tas
coma. Bishop Fowler is known to
favor Tacoma, and to be ready to do
anything possible to locate there.
Bishop Foss, who had been imposed
upon by Revs. Devore and LcSourd,
was induced to recall his vote cast
for Tacoma. and to visit the Sound
in person. In that visit, though he
reached no other point. than Tact-mu
itself, his eyes Were opened so clearly
to the trickery, land-scheming plans. ‘
and deception of Tacoma real cstatcl
boomers and Tacoma members of the l
. commission, that it is morally certain j
that he will either vote to proceed at
Townsend without further ado, or
1130 Vote to give us the disinterested
arbitration that our people are de—
manding. Bishop Warren, the third
member of the commission from the
episcopacy, who probably holds the
‘ casting vote for the whole matter, is,
so far as we know, entirely untram
tooled—and upon his fair-minded
action Port Townsend must rest hex
~ hope of securing ms'rrcs. We have
. won our fight long since, if we can
‘ but secure reasonably fair treatment
in this present crisis. These Bishops
’ have been requested by the local
members of the commission to meet
together personally at such place and
at the earliest time as will suit their
convenience. The Rev. J. N. Deni
son is chairman of the local commit
tee authorized to confer with them.
and is willing to take the time neces

Townsend does not take enough in~

with the necessities and prospects of
the case as they are just now, to raise
’- the funds required for the trip, then
Port Townsend does not deserve the
university. It will avail us but little

With Seattle, Port. Townsend hasi
ever had the very best of businessi
feelings. The only rcason,if any
exists, why we should not immedij
atcly favor the sub-posts of entry at‘:
Seattle and Tacoma is the fact that
our customs district is yet without
a custom house and our oflicers are
really out of doors save as they
rent poorly equipped buildings.
With this custom houso completed
we recognize that sub-ports of entry
will be nnccessity and we really
thinkthut we Wlll lose nothing by
our sister cities getting their wish.
Port Townsend‘s interests are not
served by decrying the interests of
other places.
We are not altogether friendly to
Tacoma She has shown her cloven
foot in the university matter until
we are compelled to believe that she
carries a swine’s suont, and hence we
owe her no good will. .Yet we are
not going to imitate her in trying to
defeat legislation that is for the good
of the whole Sound country. In the
matter of commercial relations she
shall yet feel the hand of Port.
We certainly wish Seattle success
and shall be ready to reciprocate her

The Situation in Europe.
There is no prospect of a war in
Europe in the near future. Russia
is moving her troops to the frontier,
Simply to be ready should the oppor
tunity arire to play a winning game
on the checker board of European
state craft. She of course desires
Constantinople. She ought to have
it, too, so far as real right. is con
eerned. The only reason why she
has not had it for a long time is that
she would thus become too strong
and great for the safe-y and peace of
Europe. \\'i:h this in view England
and Germany have checked her am -
bition, and she is very impatiently
hiding her time. Germany is very
strong from a military stand point.
and the result seems to verify Bis—
marck's prophecy that “Preparation
for war would minister for peace.”
This. is true and the two blood 1
hounds of western Europe will con -1
tinne to growl at each other and
martial their forces until the millions
of their soldiery tire oi- the senseless
show and emigrate to more peaceful I
lands. “No war in Europe,” will be
the news for the next ten years.

It has. l'rrlCllt'Ll down into the treasury
deep enough to leave a deficit of
four or five. hundred thousand dol
lars. There are but two ways out of
the dilexuxuafiei-hor to horrmv mon

to be discounted. Either course will
saddle a large load of iLterest upon
the taxpayers. Probably we shall
have to return for n time to the old
system of depreciated warrants.
‘Bankers and speculators will make
money by it-—nnless they decline

that they will ofi'sot the low interest
rate by insisting upon discounting
heavily from the face of warrants.
As a result. people who perform serv
ices for the territory will charge ex
orbitant prices wherever possible.
and ofiicnrs with salaries will be
tempted to “even up” by question—

this sort of regime had been ended
years ago when. under Governor Fer

territorial debt was wiped out; but it
seems that we are to be saddled
again. Whether the advantages to
be gained will be anyway near com
mensurate with the price paid for so
much legislative grandeur or not. re--
mains to be seen. At present writing,
however, it looks very much like a
case of being governed too much.
l University Commission
All the members of the local committee
were present. A motion wns made by
Dr. Dillon as follows:
\VKBRBAS, them is a serious business
conflict betwaen the Board of Trade of
Port Townsend and the Puget Sound
annual conference. concerning locating
the University at that place. therefore
Resolved, that we are not prepnrrd to
vote on the bids presented to us for loca
tion of anid finniversity. but! that we do
hereby recommend that the ditfioulty be
settled by urt‘ifrntion in the manner
prescribed by the discipline of the
Methodist Episcopal Church.
Dr. Dillon and l'cv. Lny voted for this
resolution; Rev‘s Devore and IleSourd
against it. The chairman then called
(or Votesnn the propositions from Port
'l‘nwneend and Tacoma. The vote was
then taken, Dr. Dillon and Ruv. Loy

A Mistake.
En. Anous:-—I noticed in the Call.
of the 13th inst. the assertion that
the 11. E. conference took away the
university from Port Townsend and
put it up to the highest bidder.
This is a serious mistake or mis—
statement. as to the action of the
conference. It had no power what
ever to take away the university from
Port Townsend. It did not even
try to do so It did refuse to com~
plete arrangements with its own
hoard of trustees. It did declare
itself as morally and leg illy free from
Port Townsend. It. did not put the
matter fly to the highest bidder. It
simply CI‘O-fllkd a commission to
whom it referred the whole matter of
university and transferred that com
mission its own power in full. Hence
:thc commission is in university mat
ters. the conference. The local part.
of the commission is a tie on the
claims of Port Townsend. Port
Townsend's bid has not been changed
or modified in the least. If it was
desxrable to cope in amount with Ta~
coma’s $75,000 we could do it. as rise
in values has fully made up the dif
ference between $50,000 in July and
$75,000 now. We are endeavoring to
show the non-resident Bishops that.
the claims of Port Townsend, rest on
the moral obligation of the confer
ence to Port Townsend, rather than
on any competitive valuation of the
bonus. Nothing is decided as yet.
No location is made at any other
point, while Port Townsend has her
University duly incorporated and
ready to begin operations. Shall we
surrender before we are defeated?
I hazard nothing in saying that the
University movement has already
paid Port Townsend property hold
ers more than the $50,000 subscribed
———and yet. not. ten men have paid a
cent. toward the. enterprise. If com
pleted it will pay ten times its cost. in
rise of values in three vents. One
piece of property valued by its
owner at SBOO one year ago, has just
sold for $3,000. The sale was direct
ly due to the university movement.
The movement has caused an ad
vance of probably not. less than 25
per cent. in all real estate values on
Qannper Peninsula. So soon as the
buildings shall be roofed, values will
have gone up not less than 30 per

CHICAGO, Feb. 13.—A Columbus, 0.
dispatch says that John Sherman.
who is in the city, on hearing that
Mr. Blaine would not. allow his name
to be used before the Chicago con
volition, said that he had been ex~
peeling some such utterance from
Mr. Blaine for some time. Ho had
undm‘stood that it would be forth—
coming. Mr. Blaine was one of the
foremost Americans whom every rc<
pulilican would have delighted to
honor. and it was n. source of regret
that ho had not concluded to make
the raco again. Mr. Sherman did
not care to talk much about the
Blaine letter, and thought it would
cause a number of other candidates
to como to the front. He proposed
to take the race for the Ohio delega
tion and would contest honorably for
the nomination. Mr. Blaine was a
republican that could sweep the
country. if nominated. but he had
understood all along that he would
not again seek the nomination. It
was on this hypothesis that Sherman
had entered the lists. .
