The Considines were arraigned in the superior court Saturday before l Judge Emery. Tney entered pleas of not guilty, and the court fixed their trial for Sept. 16. West Seattle has a much larger pop- ulatlon now than during the winter months. Five to six hundred camping parties are located along the beach from Duwamish head to Alkl poin t. Mathew Seattle, grandson of the In- dian chief for whom Seattle was nam- ed, died at Lawrence, Kan., of con- sumption last week. He was a stu- dent in the law department for the University of Kansas. The earth which is excavated from the Lake Washington canal is being used to fill up the low lands which are three feet below the level of Lake Union. About five hundred acres will be reclaimed in this way. The Rosecrans has been ordered north and will sail about the 15th to St. Michael With both troops and sup- plies. An exchange of troops is to be effected, those that have been serving in the north will be brought down on the return trip. The halibut schooner Enceda got in from the banks Saturday morning. She reports that both fish and bait are get- ting scarce. The Indian fishermen off Cape Flattery predict that the present abnormal run of salmon will cease within three days. The board of directors of the Seat- t,e General hospital have arranged for a meeting to be held in the Grand Opera house next Sunday evening un- der direction of the pastors of Seat- tle, in the interest of free hospital beds for sick people who are too poor to pay for hospital care. The Western Central Labor Union is rapidly completing preparations for the celebration of Labor Day, Septem- ber 2. The great event of the celebra- tion will be the laying of the corner stone of the labor temple. This cere- mony will be performed immediately after the disbanding of the grand pa- rade, with which the exercise of the day will be commenced. The collier Wfllamette, which went on the rocks in Bayne Sound, B. C., four months ago and soon after broke ll two, reached port in Seattle Sunday morning under her own steam. The work of putting together the two parts of the ship and patching her up sufil- ciently to travel without being towed is a remarkable piece of work. It was done under the direct supervision of Robert Moran, whose firm bought the collier from the underwriters. As a result of the consolidation of the interests of the Southern Pacific, Oregon Railroad & Navigation and Un- ion Pacific lines in the northwest, sev- eral changes will be made in the local offices of these roads. The Southern Pacific office, now in charge of C. J, Steeple, will be abolished and the busi- ness of the offiee conducted by the Oregon Railway & Navigation. The Tacom office of the Southern Pacific will a|so be abolished. The new ar- rangement goes into effect on Septem- ber 1, Neither Likes Nor Fears ,sr Hatchet (Seattle Hotel Reporter.) From Medicine Lodge, Kan., comes the news that David, husband of Car- rie, Nation has brought suit for di- vorce on the ground that his unwifely spouse has held him up to public ridi- cule, neglected her family duties and abandoned his home. Any court in Kansas can take "Judi- cial cognizance" of sufficient facts to warrant the decree prayed for in a state where these peccadillos are made good ground for divorce, and thus save the much-suffering man the waste of time and money to make formal proof of his allegations. David must be a brave man. No other could ever have mustered the courage to "pop the question" to a lassie of Carrie's make-up. Possibly she took the lead in that delicate business, reversing the usual course in that as she has since done in other things on an extensive scale. But if David didn't do a brave thing but "was taken advantage of in some leap - year at the com- mencement, he makes up for it now; for It certainly requires great moral and physical courage to brave the terrors of Carrie's hatchet and tongue by haling her before a court on a charge of neglecting her family du- ties. Think what is in store for him if she ever gets within reach of him with either her hatchet or her tongue, in court or out of court! Nor will Carrie be the only whirl- wind in petticoats with which he is likely to liave to do. The whole W. C. T. U. will probably be after him with its broomstick. Every she agitator in the land will get red-headed and red faced and shout at him, "What, hoI you wretched apology for a man! How dare you insinuate that the pro. i per place for woman's activity is her WASH. husband's home! her proper occupa- tion such a trivial and menial thing as domestic duties! Bah! you poor lit- tle imp! You cannot appreciate a wo- man who has a grand soul and is bent on a great mission in life. Domestic duties, for sooth!" David ought to be made the next governor of Kansas as a recompense for his woes. He has more and higher claims and qualifications for that of- rice than several who have filled it, and his election thereto would con- tinue the sort of thing for which Kan- sas has been famous. The Kern County Oil Lands. Edward Y. Gibson, a gentleman largely interested In oil lands In Kern county, California, is quoted as saying, while on his visit east a short time ago: "There Is no question as to the fu- All ifou00d The The Elks' carnival opened in Taco- ma on Wednesday. It will last ten days. The fifteenth annual State Press as- sociation meeting will be held in Ta- ccma on Aug. 13, 14 and 15. There was a freight wreck near Sul- tan last Wednesday, resulting in the death of.Engineer Charles Warner. Col. Jack Egan, an old-time Pacific coast printer-journalist, has assumed editorial charge of the Nelson Miner. The harvest festival held at Auburn ture of oil interests in California. I last Saturday was a success. More think few people realize the wonderful than 800 visitors came to the town to deposit of oll in the vicinity of Bakers- field in Kern county. The three dis- tricts known as the McKittrlck, Trem- bler and Devil's Den, lying a few miles west of Bakersfield, give evidence of being unsurpassed in richness Every test, including the sinking of numerous wells, tends to corroborate this state- ment. "An erroneous impression seems to exist that the oil field embraces all of Kern county. As a matter of fact the rich oil land is comparatively limited and for this reason investors should be very careful to ascertain the location of property before investing in land or stock. My own representative on the coast is one of the best oil men in the United States. "The facilities for handling the oil will rapidly improve with the exten- sion of the two railroads and comple- tion of the projected plpe-line to the coast, and I can think of no better in- vestment at the present time than ap- proved land along the projected line of transportation." Paul du Chaillu, the famous French. traveler and author, purposes spending five years traveling in Siberia and Rus. sia, collecting materials for a book which will be called "Modern Russia." The government has been pleased to extend to him its officia'l protection during his wanderings, and also to grant him free transportation by rail wherever he may go. M. du Challlu intends to learn Russian and some one or the Oriental tongues of Asiatic Rus- sia. The First National Bank of New York has declared the phenomenal div- idend of 1900 per cent on the capital stock of $500,000, which is undoubtedl the record dividend in the financial history of the country. On one sale alone, that of the Central Railroad of New Jersey stock to the Morgan in- terests, the bank is said to have net- ted $7,000,000. The transaction in- volved the transfer of the famous $23,- 000,000 check, said to be the largest on record. While the acreage and production of wheat in California havb decreased during the last decade, the "areas de- voted to this cereal and the quantity o the grain produced in the Pacific northwest have increased greatly. The agricultural department is about to is- sue a bulletin discussing in great de- tail the production of wheat on the Pacific coast, including the state of California, Oregon, washington and Idaho. By far the best showing has been made by Washington during the last few years. E. E. Ellis returned Saturday from Portland, where he has neen for sever- al days on business connected with the consolidation of the Southern Pa- cific railway with the Oregon Railroad & Navigation Co. Mr. Ellis will be general agent in charge of the Union Pacific, the Southern Pacific, he Ore- gon Railroad & Navigation and the Oregon Short Line. The Seattle office will control all of the territory north of Portland and west of Spokane, in- cluding Alaska and British Columbia. The report for July of the customs business done at the Puget Sound ports is out. There is a curious dif- ference in the figures covering the business done at the Seattle and Ta- coma ports, the former having import- ed goods to the value of $188,043 and the latter $90,701, while the amount of the duty collected at Seattle was only $24,840.82 against Tacoma's $42,111.80. This disproportion is explained by the nature of the goods imported. During the month Seattle imported an nnusu- i ally large amount of raw silk which, under the existing tariff regulation, is admitted free of duty. Tacoma, on the other hand, imported a large consign- ment of Hessian grain sacks which pay a high duty, collecting a total duty of approximately $30,000 on this ship- ment. Taking No Risk. Mrs. Muggins--Don't you tell your husband everything? Mrs. Bugglns--Gracious! I should say not. He's a teller in a bank, and the first thing I would know it would be all over town.--Philadelphia Rec- ord. Center Field, Harry--Father, what do you think? Up at college I was on the team and' did great work at center field! Farmer Spudds--Just what I want! Here, take the hoe and get busy in Four old position!-=Cleveland Plain Dealer. Join in the celebration. The worgt forest fire known in years lc raging in the Cascades, Just west of Wellington. Great Northern trains have been delayed by the fire. The creamery plant of the state ag- ricultural college at Pullman was burn- ed last Saturday. The loss is estimat- ed at $%000, no insurance. A. W. Prater of Seattle and his brother, J. T. Frater of Minnesota, vis- ited Everett last Saturday to secure a franchise for a trolley line between that city and Seattle. After a trial, lasting two days, Mrs. J G. Davis, a Christian Science healer of Spokane, was last Saturday found guilty of failure to report a case of scarlet fever, as required by law. She was fined $5 and costs. A fund of ,000 is being raised for the purpose of opening a county fair at Meyers Falls, in October. Three and four years ago a fair was held there and the race track and fair build- ings will be used for present purposes. The work of consolidating about 30 salmon canneries on Puget Sound and in Alaska has been completed and the Pacific Packing & Navigation company paid over about $5,000,000 in cash and distributed stock to the various can- nery men who have come into the com- bination. Forest fires are raging between Lake Sammamish and the Snoqualmie river, and many lumber camps are in, danger. On Saturday, Haley's camp, on the Snoqualmie, was saved only by the strenuous efforts of fifty mdn. Many thousand dollars 'worth of tim- :ber has already been destroyed and lumbermen say unless it rains soon more damage is inevitable. Advlces from Marcus, Wash., state the erection of a smelter near the mouth of Kettle river is agitated. It is reported that a Tacoma syndicate is interested in the project and that an agent has been looking over the land with a view of locating a site. As the proposed smelter would be di- rectly on the line 0f the new road to Republic the ores from the camp, as well as from some of the Boundary country camps, could be easily hauled down Kettle valley. An important deal was consummated ia Colfax last week by which Aaron Kuhn, the largest individual grain deal- er and warehouse proprietor in the state, disposed of his warehouses in the Palouse country to Balfour, Guth- fie & Co. The sale includes sixteen warehouses, which is in Moscow, Ida- ho, one mile from the state line. This sale brings a new firm into the field in Eastern Washington and practically puts an end to individual warehouse interests in this state. PUGET 8OUND IS IN THE SWIM. (Seattle Hotel Reporter.) As this Is the era unprecedented for ggantic combinations of capital to con- trol and exploit the world's .largest and most lucrative productions and in- dustries, Puget Sound naturally looms grandly on the horizon and gracefully assumes her appropriate place in the august line of such combinations fin- anced in New York and incorporated under the laws of New Jersey to corral the great profits of an enormous indus- try. Her wonderful natural resources have made her known to the world of unlimited capital eagerly seeking prof- itable investment, and one of those resources has now been made the basis for a combination of capital sufficient. ly colossal to arrest tb- attention of Wall street and the ,ation, even in these days when c ssal cambinations are becoming cb .men. At frequent atervals during the past eight mont..s, and almost daily for the past eight weeks, a prominent item of news sent over the country from Wall street, has related to the various steps h the organization of a syndicate cap- italized at $32,000,000 to take over a large number of established plants en- gaged in catching and canning salmon fish on Puget Sound and the Alaskan coast. Recently the center of daily news in this matter shifted from the Atlantic to the Pacific coast, from New York to Portland, Or., and now it has passed from the stage of organization ar:d preparation to an accomplished fct. The properties have been trans- ferred, millions of dollars in cash and more millions in stock of the new com- pany have been paid for it, the new syndicate is in possession and control of the vast industry, and the announce- ment is already made ,that it will prob- ably make a net profit of a million dollars fronl this season's pack of sal- mon. And with this completion of the gigantic tranactron, Puget Sound be- t ones the scene and Seattle the head- ,._[t Iquarters of the practical work of this /]|r [ enormous Industry, whose product and u,t.u trade-mark is destined to become st. icedily familiar to every part of the civilized world. This transaction has focussed the at. tention of great capitalists upon the Puget Sound region in a way to make it certain that It has but blazed the way for others to follow until the many vast natural resources of the .re- gmn have passed under similar control and started on a development of simi- lar huge proportions. It is the first step that is difficult, and men who can control unlimited capital for any enter- )rise that promises big dividends, be- ing called here frequently now by in- vestments already made, instead of .having to be importuned and "induced" to come, will no be slow to see and improve other opportunities no less at- tractive than the one whose exploita- tion has Just been launched. This is but the initial step on a large scale of that development of natural re- scurces destined soon to render this region of country surrounding a glori- ous, Isle-studded inland sea overlooked by grand ranges of mountains eternal- ly snow-capped one as wonderful and interesting in all the attributes and charms of the highest civilization as it is in its manifold grandeurs of na. ture. If the advent of this colossal syndi- cate to play a part in the development of one of the largest wealth-producing resources of the' Puget Sound region is a thing beneficial and a matter for gratulation in the community; if the disbursement of an enormous sum of money here to obtain control of these properties and interests and the pay- ment of further enormous sums annu- ally to laborers employed in working them and for the various materials an supplies they will require, is something for which people shoul be glad and thankful; then due credit, appreciation and gratitude for it all is due to the one man whose unaided zeal, energy, persistence and splendid abilities have b"ought it about. His pathway from the outset ufitil now has been thickly strewn with thorns, briers affd pitfalls instead of roses, and now that he has triumphed over all obstacles, opposi- tion, scepticism, scoffings, deception, trickery, detraction, base betrayals by many whom he benefited largely and trusted, and has scored a final, com- plete and brilliant success in the aim and task he set himself, a high need of praise, consfderation and gratitude is richly his due from all who think the result is something for which the com- munity has cause to be glad and re- oice. The name of this gentleman is Ro- vnd Onffroy. Arriving on this coas for the first time a little over three years ago, his active and trained in- telligence promptly saw the grand op- portunity presented for the employ- ment of large capital in the fishing industry on Puget Sound, and he at once set to work to make himself thor- oughly familiar with its every phase :and detail. He masterel it with aston- ishing ease and rapidity and then promptly entered upon the work of carrying his ideas of it into practical execution. In three years he has ac- complished work the nervous and phys- ical strain of which not one man in a million could sustain. Canneries, fish- traps, and all the paraphernalia of this industry have sprung into existence under his management a' if by magic. His hand has been everywhere. His parsonality has been felt in every de- tail. His intellect conceived and form- ulated the plan. He worked out every detail. His wonderful energy and ce- lerity of action secured the opportun- ity for capital. His large exaerience in life and his knowledge of men and the ways of the financial world en- 'abled him to find and interest capital. ists, and his magnetic personality, con- fidence and enthusiasm was easily equal to moulding them to his views and securing their confidence and sup- port. Such is the man who has brought the first great financial syndicate to exploit the natural resources of Puget Sound. His opponents and detractors and enemies have been many and dl picable, but he.can easily afford to for- get them in. the esteem felt for him by a host of men, women and chil- dren who are now benefieiaHes of his efforts. It Mixed Him Up. "As to the coming yacht race," said Mr. Sezzit to his wife, "I thing it will be found that there is many a slip be- tween lip and the cupton." "What?" inquired Mrs. Sezzlt. "I mean there will be many a slup between the lip and the slipton--there will be many a clip from the slip to the --confound it, I mean there will be many a lip between the cup and the slipton--no, that isn't right--there will be many a slap from the clip to the cupton--er--that is, there will be a captain from the slip--blame it, .Maria, you always get me confused! What I want to say is that there will be many a slip from the lip to the scupton-- what the dickens are you laughing at anyhow? That's the way with a fool woman. Wonder to me any man of sense ever tries to talk to one." "Why, my dear, what is wrong with you this evening?" "There isn't anything wrong. I was going to say that there will be many a slip between the lup andwell, I hope we lose the race anyway, Just to teach you to respect your husband more when he tries to entertain you."--Bal- timers American.

The heat wave has reached sunny Italy. Last Saturday the thermometer m many parts of that country regis- tered 43 centfgrade in the shade. Vine- yards were shriveled up as though set on fire. The continued drought in Russia has extended the area of crop damage, which includes the Baltic provinces. In the West Siberia and Volga prov- inces an almost equal crop failure is expected. The pa'cking firms of Armour & Co. and Swift & Co. have become joint bwners of the stock yards at Fort Worth, Tex., and will soon expend $1,- 000,000 in building branch plants at that place.

Signor Crispi, formerly premier of Italy, died at his villa in Naples, Aug, 12. The funeral will be a state affair and most elaborate. It is said that Signor Crlspl's private resources were in such ill shape at the time of his death that the wife will have nothing to live upon save the proceeds from the sale of the memoirs. The battleship Iowa sailed Sunday night from the Bremerton navy yard for San Francisco. It was first intend. ed by the government officials that the Wisconsin would be sent there, to be in readiness to go to Panama, but when it was learned that this ship would need fifteen or twenty days to finish her repairs, the orders were trans- ferred to the Iowa. In view of the interest taken in the question of whether or not animal tu- berculosis can be communicated to hu- man beings, T. L. Monson, state dairy commissioner of Colorado offers him- self as a subject for a thorough test of the matter, provided a suitable an- nuity for his family is assured in case of fatal results.
