of the 4th instant, were discharged from

A meeting was held in tbe council
chamber last night for the purpose of or-
e-tnisimr a Humane Society in this city.
What the meeting lacked in attendance
was made up in enthusiasm. It was
agreed that some organized effort ehonjd
be made to prevent or punish cases of
cruel and inbnmau treatment of persons
or of the dumb animals that cannot
plead their own cause. Mayor Farley
occupied tbe chair but as no one present
seemed to know how to go about the
matter of organization, Dr. Siddall was
unanimously appointed a committee of
one to obtain the necessary information
and to report to a meeting to be held,
later subject to bis call.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer of yes
terday hits off Portland in tbe following
fashion which, unfortunately, has too
much truth in it to be pleasant:
"Portland has jnrt been slinging itself
in an effort to raise a suitable fund for
tbe exposition, with tbe reenlt that
thousands of dollars have been sub
scribed, and more is a coming. Every
body is glad of it. Hustle is what tbe
town needs above all other tbings. In
view of tbe signs of awakening, the Oie
gonlan felicitates itself in theee words:
"Tbe Lewis and Clark subscriptions
will kill off two ancient bugbears.
Nobody is talking now about superior
enterprise at Seattle. Nobody is in

A well-attended meeting of tbe busi
ness men of the citv convened in the
club rooms last night to consider what
action, if any, should be taken in relation
to the rate war just inaugurated by the
White Collar Line. M. T. Nolsn called
tbe meeting to order and occupied the
chair till the entrance of President
Whealdon, when tbe latter took Mr.
Nolan's place. Mr. Peters stated the
object of tbe meeting and suggested
that tbe beet way to stop the war was
for tbe business men of tbe town to re
fuse tbe opposition line any business. He
insisted that there was not room for two
Tbe diseussion lasted for aboot an
boor and a half and at times waxed
warm. A motion prevailed tnat tne
chair appoint three business men to
cinvass the boainess bouses of tbe city
and obtain pledges of the merchants
that tbey will not support the White
Collar line. The chair appointed Messrs.
Peters, Cross and Mclnerny.
Tbe sense of tbe meeting was finally
obtained by the presentations of the fol
lowing motion: "Resolved that any
transportation company tbat Is re
sponsible for ratting rates below what is
fair and reasonable is unworthy of the
patronage of the merchants of Tbe

Collar line and a merchant who never
patronised tbe home company. The
