principally from Bellingham bay
and Tacoma about 500,000 tons,
including coal consumed iu the
territory, the whole product of all
the mines has been in the neigh

William Patterson, who has just
returned from the Moses reserva
tion mines, reports that John
Pointon, aged about 50 years,
was blown from one of the mines
by n premature discharge of a
blast oil the 14th of August. The
blast did not go off at once and he
went in too soon to see what was
the matter. After proceeding
about twenty feet the blast ex
ploded, throwing Pointon down
the mountain side. His arms and
legs were broken and he was
otherwise mangled. Mr. Patter
rode 1G0 miles in twenty-four
hours for a doctor, changing horses
with Indians when he could. He
said the Indians refused to receive
hire for their horses when they
learned his mission. The wounded
man lived until August 30, when
he died, lie has a brother iu Cal
Jay Cooke's Connection With the
A number of j'cars ago in San
dusky, Erie county, Ohio, a gentle
man of worth ran for a country
office whose first name was so
hard to spell and pronunce that
the ballots, which were undoubted
ly intended for him, were thrown
out and he was defeated. This
was the father of JaT Cooke, who
stinging under his defeat, had
sworn that no son of his should be
plagued as he had been and there
fore named his son after the first
chief justice of the United States.
Like John Jay, Jay Cooke was a
lover of liberty and his country,
and when the rebellion broke out
he was found on the side of the
Union. When England was
lending her moral, financial
and other support to the Con
federacy, and France was intrigu
ing to place a crown upon the
head of our Mexican neighbor, and
everything seemed black and
gloomy for the financial interests
of the Union as well as the suc
cess of its armies; when Lincoln
needed a second Aaron and Hurr
to hold up his arms, they came in
the forms of Salmon P. Chase and
Ja3T Cooke. The former, then
secretary of the treasury, was
looked upon to bring out th6
sinews of war. Instead of a pile
of stones to lean upon, Lincoln
leaned upon Chase. He it was
who was to devise the ways and
means to procure the needful, and
as the sequel showed he did not
lean upon a "broken reed." Chase
was a financier equal to the emerg
ency and ranked with Hamilton
and Morris or even the brothers
Say of France. He conceived the
idea of bonds, and needed one who
would make no failure in placing
them upon the market and mak
ing their sales enthusiastic and
popular. There may have been
others, but Chase's practical sense
chose from out them all, Jay Cooke,
then a young banker of Philadel
phia. The bonds wore looked
upon with caution. The' had
a long while to run thirl
years and yielded, what was
then thought to bti
of interest. Cook's
a low ratei
all their endeavors, friendly no
doubt, to dissuade him from en
tering into the scheme of sellinjr
them. Notwithstanding, the young
banker had faith in his country
men and their cause, and deter
mined that his own people would
take them if foreign capitalists re
fused. It required an immense
amount of nerve to go ahead;
but, go ahead he did. Every
newspaper from east to west was
notified that the bonds were for
sale. These papers in their turn
echoed the necessity of money.
The bonds were extolled as good
investments: that .if. .the bonds
were not good the government
was not good. In response to all
this, millions upon millions were
taken, and the Treasury was re
plenished. Our armies were en
couraged and the severe financial
trial overcome. Of course Cooke
made a great deal of money, and
he deserved it. Commensurate
then with his means, and about
the close of the war he built a
palatial residence near the his
torical spot of Perry's victory on
Lake Erie, at Put-in-Bay, on a
high promontory named after the
great British post, Gibraltar. All
that wealth could do to beautify
and adorn it was done. Near his
birthplace, only twenty miles dis
tant, one would have thought- that
the financier would rest satisfied.
Not so. His active temperament
would not rest, and it sent him
inrn fields ntipw. Thr vnst nnrth-
ern part of the country needed
opening. Nothing but a railroad
would do it. The Northern Pa
cific had long ago been projected
but laid dormant. It was; to con
nect the Pacific with Lake Superior.
Its route was a vast unbroken but
yielding country. Into this pro
ject Cooke entered and though
many years had passed since the
road was first mooted, he gave a
new life to it. But it was his
financial downfall. In 1S73, while
Cooke was carrying on business
in Philadelphia with millions of
the bonds and stocks of the road,
a collapse came and he went un
der. "With him went hundreds of
others some of the most sub
stantial firms of the country. All
railroad stocks and bonds "tum
bled" and the country was on the
brink of financial ruin. It was not
only felt in the United States, but
ii -i ti i
an Europe was snaKen, aim .tuner-
,- ii . ,
ican securities would not bring
one-tenth the original price. Their
shrinkage in European markets in
less than sixty days exceeded five
thousand million dollars. It took
seven years to recover from the
shock and restore anything like
confidence again in our securities.
But the strength of the country
was equal to the task. Good
crops, judicious management of
revenues and prosperity again
commenced to dawn. The nation
al debt was materially reduced.
The boundless resources of the
country caused timid capital
to crawl from its hiding
places. n the meantime Jay
Cooke had been driven to the
wall. All his interest in the
Northern Pacific, his magnificent
home, his steamers on the lakes
his splendid library, and all else
had faded like, the "baseless fabric
of a vision." But his indefatiga
ble spirit was not overcome. He
has arisen from his financial ashes
and he has become one of Ameri
ca's money kings.
