The End ! I !
B'rom your paper it may be seen that
political enthusiasm has not died out in
Moirow oouuty.
Seattle had a surprise last Tuesday at
the municipal election. The city is oon
sidered to be about GOO to 1,000 republi
can, but in this contest the majority was
democratic by from 1,500 to 2,000. The
republicans only elected two delegates
out of nine and the rest of the ticket went
democratic without an exception. The
defeat is attributed to some elements in
the ru'iiihKftueiit of the party, but was
probably caused, to some extent, by the
die, flection remitting from a great city
indebted neHs incurred by the damiiaes of
the lite of 18s'J and o.her couses. The
debt is between $2,000,IJsj and W.UUO.UjO,
and while all acknowledge great expendi
tures were uecessary ou aocotiut of the
growth of the city, the expense of the
fire and building up a fire department,
there still were many dissatisfied with
the management, and vuted for the other
side. The vote as cast shows quite an
increase iu population sinoe 1890. The
registration for 1890 was 7,722. and for
1892, was 10,841. The vote polled iu
1890 was 5.057, and in 1892 was 8,294,
being a gain in the vote of 3,237.
The U. S. ships Nipsic and Jlobican
arrived Inst night and will be here three
or four days laying in coal and provi
sions. The Jlipsio will then take her
station at the Port Orchard naval sta
tion to be used as a storehouse and for
quarters for the officers in charge of the
navy yard. She is a small vessel and
badly damaged by the Samoan disaster.
Her engines are only oapable of four or
five knots an hour, and she was towed
from San Francisco by the Mohioan.
She baa only four guns. The Mohican
is a very fine wooden vessel and she cau
steam about eleven knots an hour. She
carries quite a strong battery of nine-inch
guns and one eight-inch rille and other
smaller rifles, with one guttling gun and
four Uotchkiss cannon. Quite a crowd
are ocntinually going on board to see the
novel'y of a man-of-war. Although not
nearly so fine a vessel as the Charleston
and some of the other boats that some
times visit the sound, she still is au ob
ject of considerable interest.
Yours truly, O. L. Andbkws.

The horse fair held at this place Sat
urday brought in a large number of
farmers. We ore glad to note the inter
est taken in horses that can be called
For years and years this country has
suffered from an excess of the beautiful
animals called the horse. Why is this
thus? You know that a good horse in
any part of the world is just as staple a8
wheat, hardware or groceries; that no
country ever suffered from an over sup
ply of good horses. The horse of the
past, the wild, untamed bunch-grass
pony or cayuse is a funny job. He iB
low and snugly built. He weighs about
450 pounds when iu good order, but he
puts oo more airs thnn a common sohool
examiner. He will try to make you
think be weighs a ton.
Put him mto harness for three days or
under the saddle balf that time and be
will be reduoed in flesh and spirit so
much that bis great big stump head will
entirelv over-balance the Boutb end ot
his body. Of course this is no serious
inconvenience to the owner, but at times
very uncomfortable for the venerable
beast, and ofteu in riding through the
country one will note the gay and festive
cayuse feeding on the green hillside with
only two feet on the ground.
Cay lines are said to have a specific
value, but I dou't believe it They are
generally sold or trailed in job lots, and
if you are not careful your horse mer
chant prince will "job" you by running
in fourteen or lifteen for a dozen.
It's a relief, I Bay, after gazing for
weeks on the greatest curse that ever be
set this fair land, to look upon some fine
specimens of thoroughbred horses, Suc
cess to the enterprising gentlemen who
make an effort to introduce new Btock.

The other afternoon David Torter en

not to laugh, and he who violated it bad

glad to note that there were only a tew
trifling violations of the rules which
govern the Melancholy Club. As a re

thinking done, and had it not been for a
