The City On Commencement Bav nn
Artificial Creation Kathcr Than
an Outgrowth of Favorable
New York Post !
There Is much to be said regarding i
the two Puget Sound cities, Tacoma and
Seattle. To begin with the first
named, the city on CVxnmencement bay,
was from the start an artificial creation
rather than the natural outgrowth of
favorable local circumstances. It has
a good harbor, but there are
many other good harbors on the Sound,
and Tacoma would not haw risen but J
for Its selection as the terminus of a
great transcontinental railroad line. !

gave a start to the town and steadily Nearly twenty years ago the people
promoted Its growtn. Tne apprecia
tion of real estate resulting therefrom
brought a large part of this outlay back
to the railroad treasury out of the town
lot sales. It was taken for granted,
too, that the very fact of Its being the
terminus cf the Northern Pacific coast-
wise trade, as well as a great entrepot
of the commerce between North Ameri-,
ca and Asia.
The place grew from a mere village,
lr. 1S9. In which year the Northern Pa-:
cific woke from Its six years of compuU
cory inactivity and the construction of.
the main line was resumed. Into a cit
of between 40.CiOC and 50.000 inhabitants, ,
In 1S90. It was laid out and provided;
With public improvement for a much;
larger population. There was no busl-j
ness to warrant such a growth, but the
ontlnuous Inflow or new capital ior,
real estate and business purposes kept(
up the iUusive expecUtion of untnter-;
rupted progress. At my visit in isi
the people vere still full of confidence,
and my ill-forebodings brought forth
only derisive smiles and shrugged
ahouMers. The panic of 1S33 made
short work of the artificial fabric and
reduced It to the lowest level. Every-'
thing collapsed, including the great
railroad, and general ruin hung over the !
country. All the banks, except the
.. i tnatit.itmn. fallal
Many business houses closrd, and most
of the surviving ones eked out a profit-',
less existence. Real estate became en
tirely unsalable. The Tacoma Land
Company, the parent of the city, in
whose stock the Northern Pacific was
largely interested, and which had paid
large dividends and commanded a high
premlum, coull not sell any more lots th? prompt succor afforded from
or collect def.-rred pavments and rents v"ry direction, but for days thousands

for nonpayment. The gnat hotel it un
dertook to erect stands today only two-
thirds finished. There are long busi-
ness streets, on which not one In three
of the buildings is occupied. Even well
improved properties will not bring to-
day more than from a quarter to a
third of what they cost. I can Ulustrat
this depreciation by a practical experi
ence of my own. Against my will I
became the ow ner of a plfce of land In
the outskirts of the city. I had to
take it for a debt at the rate of $4oft per
acre. During my reent ofay I -t out

smelter and planing and saw mills, con
sists mostly In tr.vnit shipments, the
prospect can hardly be hopeful unlet
more local Industries are established
and a larger outside trade secured. But

former and even If there were, the set

coast would prevent it
As regards an expansion of trade, a
line of English steamers, has been run
ning to Japan and China under the
name of Northern Pacific Steamship
Company, for some years, it came
flour from the mills on the westward,
and teas and raw silk on the eastward
voyages, but Is has not led so far to

on the spot for the Asiatic trade. There
Is also a large tonnage of wheat ship

are exerting themselves for a share o!

the kind. It is said that the people of

Ten years ago I availed myself of the
hospitality of the Canadian Pacific
Company and passed over the whole
length of kts main line from Montreal
to Vancouver on Puget sounn. tm
reaching the latt-T place on June 6.
1S'J9, I learned that a great fire was rag
ing at Seittle. On approaching the
next day by boat I saw vast volumps of
nc"e Dvernnging me cny. im lana
Ing I discovered that the entire business
portion, covering sixty-five acres and
representing JlxOOO.OOO worth of proper
ty, had been reduced to ashes, and that,
as nnt a gr?en grocery, not a provision
"nr a butcher or baker shop, was
left standing, the population was threat
ened with starvation. This was avert-
widespread and complete that It looked
as though a long time would elapse
before the great waste of space could
again. But nothing daunted,
the citizens held a meeting after the
firo ana resoI-ed to rebuild Seattle, and
vtn in nr&r Proportion. They made
good their resolution. Like Spokane,
within two years Seattle h.ad fully risen
in solid form of brick and stone, more
imposing than before.
I mention these two incidents In h
nisiory oi Seattle as the best illustra
ti ins of the character of its people. To
owe their extraordinary success, In cre-
aung out of nothing a flourishing city
of probably between 65,000 and 70,000 In
habitants. Th? creation is the more
remarkable as the location Is not a
well chosen one, the steep hills, along
whose slopes the business streets run,

but only the latter was completed,
while the former remains unfinished.

The clly grow and givw, and even

The recovery was hastened by the m
Influential events, vin: the completion
of the t Ireat Northern railroad, the
trancoiitlneiital competitor of th.
Northern Pad :1c. ml the breaking out
of the Klondike gold excitement, which
latter was a ni.vt timely smile of for
tune, from which Seattle has so far
prilltod mon than any other of the
competitive cities. Hy the acvosaion of
th? Great Northcni, Souffle- gained
greatly over Tacom.U It became the
outlet of two gmit systems, while the
latter remains the terminal of only
one. It has also secured tiro benodt of
thj great government drydock and na
val station at Port Orchard on the other
side of Elliott bay, on which the city
' lies, and of a larg government army
j pis', adjoining the city, and comprising
a thousand acres. It has besides u
I floating drydix'k and a shipyard, at
I which several vest Ms have been built
by the I'nlied States government. It U
also the seat of the state university,
which came near being forced to do
at one time, owing to the failure of the
legislature to make appropriations for
It. but It is now a flourishing Institu
tion. Like Tacoma. Seattle has a steamer
line to Japan and China, operated by
a Japanese company, in eoneotlon with
' the Great Northern railroad, which
' caries abo.it the some sort of cargx-s
' as the Tacoma line, with the same llm-
Itod local benefit. The other shipping
' huslness Is. howewr. very considerable,
1 and a large Pugvt sound and Pacific
'coastwise fie of sailing b-xits and
I' steamer Is engaged la It. Grain ship
ping Is not larire compaied with that
of lacoma and Portland. Seattle has
1 ever since the beginning built great
' hopes on the fact that the large and
beautiful Lake Washington lies In lt
immediate vicinity the present city
limits, indeed, ex'.end to It and Is ca
pable of connection with tidewater by
: a short canal, w hich would make the
i lake the only fresh water port on tlK'
! Pacific ocean, -n'.lrely safe from thai
I plague of ships an 1 docks, the teredo.
I So far. these hnivs have not been ful-
Plied, but they are persistently clung
! to, and appeals to Uncle Sam for ap
propriations will continue to be madn.
j- Besides a flour mill, only a number of
small industries are found In the place.
: The reason given for this is the want
of ,evel 8roun(1- owln ,0 the hilly
character of the site, already referred
io. mere is a gren exTeni ot tuie-nats
amounting to 15.000 acres, directly to
' the west of the improved part of the
j city, of which a local company has
! undertaken the filling to above hlgh
: water marlc. under the liberal policy
adopted by the mate to encourage the
utilisation of tide-lands generally, with
in Its jurisdiction. The compa.iy began
operations In 1S9., and filled about fifty
acres, when It came to a halt owing to
financial difficult! s, and has mt since
b"en able to resume the work, for which
several millions are netded. It Is cer-
j tain that more levol building space
needed for the growth of the business
portion, and the enterprise will doubt
lss he carrli'd on sooner or later.
That a large general business is done
in Seattle Is proved by the clearings of
the banks of the place, which work with
a capital of over $7,000,000. The ciear
i' gs for eight months In 1S99 show a
gain of nearly 40 per cent over last
year, and were nnrethan twice as large
' as those of Tacoma, and even larger by
$2,000,000 than those of Portland. The
Klondike gold excitement gave rise to
a very large business In outfitting the
. gold seekers, and In furnishing regular
supplies of all kln.Js fo foe mining dis
tricts. But as rich a harvest as the
local merchants gathered in ISM and
IS was not again vouchsafed to them
this season. There him been a steady
decline !n the Klondike trade this sum
hi -r. The reason Is that the Dominion
merchants and manufacturers have
become alive to thlr opportunity and
are shipping goods In bond through
Alaska to the Canadian gold regions,
w hich method, of course, gives them an
advantage over American competitors
to the extent of the Canadian duty.
But the certain Increase of mining in
terests in Alaska will bring compensa
tion for this lors In due time.
Tacoma is far ahead of Seattle In
the character of Its private residences.
In fact no sui h fine homes are to be
found on the heights of Elliott bay as
may be seen by the score In Tacoma. Se
attle houses are relatively small, und
nt only their lze but their exterior
and the grounds about them reveal an
Indifference to appearance In striking
contrast with the aspect of the rival
city. To speak plainly, the residence
quarter of Seattle Is very shabby, ami
I could not help repeating the ques
tion so often aHked In the past: "Why i
is It that people so pushing and well-to-do
care so little for pretty and com
modious homes?" HENRY VILLA RD.
