'M." Writes in a Most Interesting
Way of His Trip From Spokane to
Seattle, of the Country, the Towns
and Cities and the Sights.
Tutuilla, March 2. This letter Is
somewhat belated, so much so, that
the editor has murmured something
about people "who went to hell say
ing 'there's time enough yet.'" An
attempt to do a week's sightseeing in
three days and nights at Seattle did
not leave much time for letter writ
ing. And the inclination to do any
writing since has been steadily re
sisted. Westward from Spokane the Great
Northern railway wends its way
through a very barren looking country
endless stretches of sagebrush, with
rock cropping out through it, greets
the eye of the traveler the long dis
tances between stations of any kind,
or even side tracks are silent wit
nesses that the revenues of the great
merger wil lnot be materially increas
ed here. Occasionally a cabin with a
wagon loaded with water barrels
standing beside it, breaks the monot
onous stretch of sage brush, proving
that a co-worker of Kipling's pioneer
is here, trying
"To wring his food from a desert nudei
his foothold from the sand,
For he must blaze a nation's way with
hatchet and with brand,
Till on his last won wilderness an em
pire's bulwark stands."
While It is rather hard to imagine
this wilderness bearing much of the
strain of an empire's bulwarks, still
Jim Hill is here rustling business for
his road, and in view of this fact, and
bearing in mind the almost miracu
lous changes wrought in similar des
erts by irrigation projects, he would
be a reckless prophet who would
venture to say that this particular wil
derness has no future. After crossing
the Columbia and Wenatchee rivers,
the road runs through a different and
much more prosperous looking coun
try with well improved farms and
some thriving villages. Leavenworth,
the last of these east of the mountains
Is a mining town. Here the prospec
tor bids good-bye to the railway and
goes into the mountain in search of
their hidden wealth. The Wenatchee
river, whose course has been follow
ed all afternoon and which, where first
encountered, cost the Great Northern
quite a sum to bridge, Is here a little
mountain stream, which can easily be
crossed dry shod on boulders, and
which must furnish good fishing in
The timber has been reached, an
extra engine attached to the train and
a little -farther on the road runs
through a tunnel two and a half jniles
long, and emerging on the west side
the crawl down the mountain side to
ward Puget Sound is begun. A glance
from the window shows vast stretches
of timber, on one "side reaching far
below us, seemingly an interminable
distance to the bottom of the canyon:
the road on that side being above the
treetops, and on the other side stretch
ing away an equally interminable dis
tance above us toward the mountain
tops, forces the conclusion that bore
is wealth for generations yet unborn
After crossing the mountains the
short wintry afternoon soon closes in
to night, -and not much Idea can be
gathered of the country passed
through, except from the conversation
of the travelors entering the train at
the various stations, and as this seom
ed to run mostly to the prospects of a
bettor price for lumber and shingles,,
the main resource of the country.
The snow which was falling In the
mountains had changed Into a steady
downpour of rain somewhere betweon
there and Seattlo, and it Is still rain
nig next morning, but that does not
hinder a visitor whose time is some
what limited, from making an attompt
to see the town. Several street car
linos run out to Lake Washington, a
yeryXnice sheot of wntor lying some
.where back of the town, kwltoso fresh i
water Seattle Is very willing that
Uncle Sam should connect by a canal
with the salt water of Pngot Sound,
nt nn expenditure of five or six mil
lions, a project which the old gentle
man does not seem to enter Into with
the gnsto the town thinks would be be
coming on his part.
The distance between the town and
the lake Is being rapidly built up.
Surveyors are at work opening up
new streets, lots being cleared and
leveled, new buildings going up nnd
the spirit of progress nnd improve
ment seems to bo abroad generally,
Seattle furnishes a good market nnd
steady demand for a largo number of
the heavy draught horses raised In
the Inland Empire, and It is a fine
place to kill off good horses quick,
straight up hill from the water front
dray teams, loaded with every pound
they can haul and straining every
muscle. There arc lots of fine look
Ing teams here; any other kind would
be of no possible uso. All the ele
ments or strenuous horse life seem
to lie dealt out to the Seattle animal
in liberal quantities.
To the landsman, who passes his
life in the Inland country, perhaps
the most Interesting place is the water
front, every species of craft, from the
United States transport loading sup
plies for the Philippines, to the little
fishing smacks and rowboats, are rep
resented here. Dredges are at work
deepening channels and clearing the
! harbor of trash: pile-drivers driving
piles on which to erect new wharves
and warehouse facilities; large scows
loaded with wood, coming in from
some Island on the sound; steamers
arriving from and departing for Ta-
coma, Olympia, Everett. Port Town
send. Victoria, Vancouver and Alaska
Down at Ballard, whore the Great
Northern reaches deep water, ware,
houses 1000 feet long have been built,
wheat from the Inland Empire Is stor
ed in one and a ship from Liverpool
is being loaded . at the dock. The
wheat sacks just from cars are drop
ped on what seemed to be a wide
leather belt, which runs on pulleys or
rollers, propelled by some kind of per
petual motion, .and the sack never
stops till It disappears somewhere in
the "bowels" of the ship, this partlc
ular ship was taking about 100,000
sacks. In another warehouse Is stor
ed cotton bales, shipped from Little
Rock. Ark., and has got this far on
its way to Japan. All this gives the
landsman a glimpse not soon forgot
ten of a new world and a somewhat
enchanting one at that.
Thousands of tons of baled hay,
shipped here in square bales, is torn
open, fed into some kind of a com
pressor, and reappears in round bales,
about four feet long, one foot thick
and of about the same degree of so
lidity as a Remington rifle bullet,
ready for shipment to the Philippines.
The last afternoon was spent on a
visit to Port Orchard, where Uncle
Sam's navy yard is located, and where
the battleship Oregon is In dry-dock
undergoing repairs, and other Puget
Sound points at an expenditure of
half a dollar for steamboat fare, an
investment which paid satisfactory
dividends, and one judging by the pat
ronage extended to these Sound
steamers which the dwellers on Pu
get Sound are not slow at availing
themselves of, and as a way of spend
ing a pleasant holiday, it certainly
beats a dusty railway train. Return
ing. Seattle was reached after dark
and not the least interesting glimpse
of the city was from the deck of the
steamer, row after row of city lights
climbing the .hill upward into the
night. On the water, steamers, float
ing palaces of light, making their wav
to the wharves, or getting ready for
departure, all combined to make a
picture not soon forgotten. M.
