Spokane, Wash., Jan. 20. The Minis
terial, association has determined to
make the police testify in the former's
crusade against vice and to secure their
evidence In that way. The ministers are
not exactly in a position to go on and
testify personally against each of the
immoral women, but they believe that
by subpoenaing the police they can get
-the tecessftrytestlmonr to convict them.
At the meeting held earlier In the, week,
"when the crusade " was decided 'upon,
the .committee that had been appointed
to visit the mayor made its report
through its chairman, George R. Wal
lace. The report consisted of an outline
' of the conditions on lower Howai street
, and the plan of the committee to cope
with the situation. From legal advice
obtained the ministers stated that not
only the owners, but the agents and
those holding leases , will come under
the ban of disapproval and all alike will
be served with warrants to appear be
fore the courts of Spokane and show the
occupation of their tenants. The minis
ters propose not only to make one com-
plaint, but to ' insist on making "com
plaints until the social evil is removed
or the owners of the houses conclude to

he loved, . Miss Lilly Klrby, who came
from Scotland. .Bruce's - home, to wed
him .but upon her arrival here found her
lover out of work and out of money. He
was rooming at the house of a man who
had befriended him and told him he
could remain there as long as he was
out of work. His sweetheart went to
work as a domestic in a Tacoma kitchen.
About-a year ago Bruce sustained an
Injury .which incapacitated him for hard
labor. Yesterdajr morning e returned
from a search, for a place of employ
ment, despondent and disheartened. . He
did not reply to the people of the house
when spoken to, but went upstairs to
his toom. A few minutes later an ex
plosion was heard, and those below ran
to his room and found him lying on
the floor.- - He had blown his head -oft

Portland, Or., Jan. 18. To the
Editor of ' The Journal. Since my
arrival ' In this port last ' August
there has been a number of articles in
the papers, relating to the sailor boarding-house
question, and one article ' In
particular stated that captains of ships
combined wlthr boarding masters to rob
their owners. . " ,. '.' ' ' .. ' 0
-. Personally, I am modest, . but where
the dignity of my profession Is at stake
t have a spirit in me like that displayed
by. James of . Scotland; when " he was
alone In the mountain pass and 'con
fronted by the highland, chieftain,
backed by. his loyal followers Accord
lng to, the Immortal Sir Walter Scott,
James placed his. back to the rock,
grasped his sword and exclaimed: "Cdme
one! come, all! this rock -shall fly-from
Its Arm base, as soon as I." . ,
For the foregoing reason and the In
formation of the general public, I pro
pose to deal with' the following subject
Why. Do Stamen Desert? Why do cap
tains neglect, to use-their privilege .in
having their deserters arrested,, and
what becomes 0OhewageS forfeited by
deserters? ; ' , : ' '
v Many people suppose searrien desert
their ships on account of Ill-treatment
by their officers. As I have pointed out
In a previous letter, this Is not so. 'Sea
men deserting have no connection with
the discipline on board - the ship they
leave. A man ' may run away from a
ship where he is humanely treated, and
another may-remain on board a ship
where his treatment is indifferent. One
great cause why seamen desert on this
coast Is that seamen ... receive . much
higher wages here than in Europe; and
many desert their ships after having
secured "employment on "shore. . " - -
' The coasting service Is another at
traction that causes many desertions.
Coasting vessels pay higher wages, ar
often in port where they secure ' fresh
provisions, and can therefore provide
better food for their seamen than ships
going-' on' far-distant voyages. Others
desert to seek their fortunes in Alaska
and like places.
Then there is a class of seamen who
never make a complete voyage In one
ship." "on principle." "As soon as a ship
arrives in port this class "take up their
beds and walk." and their walk in
variably terminates in the nearest board
ing house. The only logical reason for
their doing so is that the routine on
board ship in port is too slow for them;
they want to have a spree.
Why captains do not arrest deserters?
First, I may say, a man who is kept
on board a ship against his will is in
every respect an unprofitable servant.
The average seaman -has by no means
arrived at a state of perfect sanctlflca-
tloiw On the coatraty he is distinctly
human, and would. watch for a chance
to work out his revenge on the old man
for arresting him. He, might accom
plish his object by a neglect of duty,
causing loss or damage to the ship, or
by unruly conduct create a most unde
sirable state in the discipline on board.
Again, the men may be lodged in a
sailors' boarding-house. If they are
arrested we offend the men who must
supply us with a crew at the last mo
ment, and may thereby cause the ship to
be delayed lh port, la which case the
master would probably be superceded
as soon as he arrived at a home port;
that Is. he would lose the employment.
In England, and, I believe, in Amer
ica also, ship-owners are allowed the
wages forfeited by deserters by law.
This is to reimburse them for the hlghet
rate of wages they have to pay abroad
and the Incidental expenses in employing
a substitute. ;
I may say when ships have quick de
spatch in port, these forfeitures are In
adequate to meet the, loss of the own
ers on account of the desertions. Ii
any case none of It goes to the captain.

Spokane, Wash., Jan. 20. The- master
builders have made good their threat
that unless the building laborers with
draw from the building trades council
they would not be employed by any
member of the association. The mas
ters have locked out the union-men on
'a. number of buildings. A tcommunica'
tion was sent to the building laborers'
union shortly before Christmas stating
the position of the master builders.- The
union laid the communication . on the
table and vouchsafed no answer... The
association waited and at a meettng held
several days ago decided to lock out
the men as it became . convenient to
them. Now nearly every union build
ing laborer has been thrown out of em
ployment. Already 50 men are out of
work and as soon as the new work starts
up. this; number, will be greatly. In
creased. . The reason that the master
builders demanded that the building
laborers' union was asked to withdraw
la because the men have , been getting
$3.50 for eight hours work, when plenty
of non-union men could be secured at
a less figure? . Last month the plumbers
demanded that the building trades coun
cil come to their aid in their strike for
$5.50 a' day. The central body ordered
a strike of all the men where any non
union plumbers had worked,- and the
building laborers walked out The un
ion leaders soon saw that they -were not
going to' hold their men together, and
they voted to go back to' work. The
master builders at that time told the
men that they could not go back unless
they agreed to withdraw from the
building trades council, which had or
dered the strike.- The men promised to
do this and were put back to work; but
when it came to a meeting they failed
to keep their promise. - They now find
themselves locked out with little chance
of helping themselves any.

(Journal fifcdtl service.)
Spokane, Jan. 20. Mayor L. F. Boyd
has given an official estimate of the pop
ulation of Spokane, He places the fig
ures at 69.294 on the first pf January,
1904. The estimate was made in re
sponse 46 S request from the United
States department of commerce and la
bor. It Is asked to be used In making up
the figures of the population, of the cities
of the United States In a report to be
Issued by the department. The follow
ing from the letter of the mayor serf!
yesterday shows the reasoning by which
the mayor arrived at-the figures that
he did: "Spokane's Increase from 19,922
In 1890 to 88,848 in 1900 is a gain, of
about 85 per cent. This, would give an
average gain of 8 per1 cent per year.
As a matter of fact, however, lltle or no
gain can be credited to the first half vf
the decade In fact. If accurate data
could be secured for the five years from

directory for 1890 listed 11,600 names
and five years later only listed 11,490

years are left to 'which to credit Spo
kane's gain of 85 per cent between 1890
and 1900, making an average rate of
Increase or about 17 per cent per year.
That thla is not an extravagant estimate
may be inferred from the fact that the
directory's list of 11,490 names In 1895
had been Increased to 20,010 In 1900. 1
