The End ! I ! SEATTLE NKWU. 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. Skattlk, March 10, 1892. THE SHAMROCK. Three leaves of shamrock, the Irishman's shamrock, From his own darling sister, her Blessing too, she gave, Take them to my hrother, for I have no one other, And these are the shamrocks from His dear old mother's grave. LKXINOTON'8 LOCAUS. 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 horses. 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 rain Friday night and the shower Saturday night have sealed the bond of aeourity for another good crop, Every body seems cheerful and very much en oouraged. Combined witb the salutory effect of the recent rains, the rays ot the sun are nursiug the verdure on hillside and plain, until the earth, iu its new green dress, seems dearer thun ever. ltev.

Success attend them in the new field. Business has been picking up quite a lot lately.

It has ever been a very popular resort for commercial travelers to Sunday in. The other afternoon David Torter en tertained a number of friends at bis pri vate parlors. The evening was "passed" in silent meditation, for it was the rule not to laugh, and he who violated it bad to pay a forfeit for his folly. We are glad to note that there were only a tew trifling violations of the rules which govern the Melancholy Club. As a re sult there was a good deal of bard, solid thinking done, and had it not been for a sudden attack of the grippe seizing our worthy host, the "afternoon" would have beeu the most pleasant of the season.
