Hero then is the situation at Seat
tle to-day. Peace sits enthroned, but
before us and ranging over many
mouths of the future lies the task of
remedying the evils engendered, re
covering tne losses mulcted, and
soothing the passions aroused. It is
best to look this matter square in the
face. While there is no organized or
respectable endorsement of mob rule
in Seattle, there have grown out
of the events of the past two
weeks factious and divisions
of society which are anything
but promisiug of advantage to
the city. Their duration rests solely
upon the degree with which intelli
gence is applied to this task of abat
ing them. We are not talking to
law breakers and rioters now. There
is but one thing to say to them and
that is "You must obey the law!"
But among the orderly people we
find the factional differences of which
wo speak, and it is to the patriotism
of these people that we address the
prayer that everything be laid aside
to the furtherance of our united in
terests. Seattle has been scathed in
the fire, and the oil of reason, moder
ation and loyalty to the Queen city
should be poured upon her wounds.
In the homely words of a workman
at our elbow "every man should but
ton up his lip until his pulse beats
slower." If there ever was a time
in the history of Seattle, when work
men, business men and tax payers
needed a strong bond of union be
tweenthem it is now. Wo are in
the midst of a temporal y depression
of all our industries. The events of
the past two weeks have locked up
local capital, stopped mills and fac
tories and mines, and frightened in
vestments from abroad. We must
get these things in motion again and
the best way to do it is to button up
our lips and cease impassioned
harangues. Ch ron iclc, 23.
THE MITCHELL BILL.
The following petition is being cir
culated throughout the state.
To the Honorable John II. MiU:hell,
and J. If. Bolph, United States
Senators from the State of Oregon :
Your petitioners, residents of the
state of Oregon, believing as we do
that American labor cannot compete
with the pauper clement of Asia, and
believing as we do that it is the duty
of government to protect its subjects
from injury, from whatever source it
may come, and to use its power to
protect labor, and make the laborers'
occupation honorable, would respect
fully request you to use all honorable
means to secure the passage of the
bill introduced by Mr. Mitchell, of
Oregon, to abrogate all existing treat
ies between the United States and
China, and to secure such legislation
on the subject as will wholly prevent
Chinese coming to the United States

A SOAD TO THE NEHALEH.
The project of building a narrow
guage railroad from this city to the
Nehalem i3 again receiving attention
and the idea is being favorably enter
tained by several who think that it
could and would be a success. It is
argued that the road would be a
means of considerable revenue from
four distinct sources.
1st. The hauling of the rock used
in building the jetty at the mouth of
the river. During last summer this
rock was hauled on government
barges at considerable expense from
a point thirty-five mile3 above the
city. It is said that large quantities
of suitable rock can be had at a point
along the road and delivered at a
price that while below present rates
would afford a margin of profit,
2nd. The seaside travel. It is un
mistakeable that if rapid and com
fortable transit could be secured from
Astoria to Clatsop beach the number
of yearly summer visitors would be
considerably augmented. The pro
posed line of road crossing Young's
bay from Smith's point to Skipanon
landing and thence to Clatsop beach
would enable many from the interior
to visit the coast and enjoy a sojourn
during the summer months who un
der existing circumstances are com
pelled to forego that pleasure.
3rd. The coal mines. Men who
talk sanguinely of the scheme say
that a large coal vein fully four feet
in width and yielding coal of excel
lent quality has been uncovered in
the vicinity of Onion Peak, and that
that whole country is underlaid with
coal measures that need only the de
velopment that the chance to get the
coal to market would bring, to be a
source of great wealth.
4th. The timber of the Nehalem.
The lower Nehalem is a terra incog
nita to ninety-nine hundredths of As
torians, and under present opportun
ities of travel must long remain so.
It is a region of great natural wealth:
its virgin forests are destined to be
an important factor in the wealth of
this section of Oregon and nothing
will add to the possibility of devel
opment faster than a railroad.
The one question is "Will it pay?"
Men who ought to know say it will.
If that can be clearly demonstrated
the road will be built maybe.
THE OLD SHIP "VANDERBILT."
The huge three-masted ship Three
Brothers, built by William H. Webb
as a steamer at Greeupoint, Ii. I., in
1855, to the order of the late Com
modore Vanderbilt, is now at Gibral
tar being altered into a coal hulk.
This vessel used to be the pride of
every American sailor, for she was
the largest that sported the red, white
and blue ensign. Her length was
320 feet, breadth forty-eight feet three
inches and depth twenty-niue feet
nine inches She had three decks
and beams and registered 2,936 tons.
When the war broke out Mr. Van
derbilt chartered her as a transport
to the government, and towards the
close of the war presented her to the
United States. She was then used
as a cruiser, and owing to her burning
such a large quantity of coal she was
surnamed "the pickpocket ot the
navy." Captain, now Admiral Bald
win commanded her. In 186G the
Howes Bro3. purchased the Vander
bilt from the navy, and altering her
into a sailing ship, rechristened her
the Three Brothers. She was
then put on the route between New
York and San Francisco. In 1881 she
was bought by several well-known
shipping men of Liverpool, and they
made extensive repairs and placed
her under the British flag.
Mr. Greenleaf, formerly second of
ficer of the steamship Umatillal but
now engaged in the shipping business
in Victoria, was in Seattle yesterday.
In conversation with the writer, he
stated that Capt. Frank Worth, form
erly master of the Umatilla, and
who afterwards got mixed up in a
smuggling speculation and bottled
down in Victoria, has been following
the business of diving of late, but re
cently bought an interest in the seal
ing business of Gutraan & Frank, of
British Columbia, and has taken com
mand of the largest of their sealing
schooners, the Frank Williams, and
yesterday set sail for a seven months'
sealing expedition. He has on board
the schooner twenty-five canoe3 and
fifty Indians. He will go south as
far as Cape Blanco, and follow the
seal north into the Arctic ocean, cap
turing them all along the line. Seat

The British steamer Sardonyx has
been chartered to sail from Victoria
March 6 for Manzanillo, Mexico,
touching at San Franoisco, Manza
tian and other ports, and terminating
at Manzanillo. At Manzanillo the
Sardonyx will take in a cargo of cof
fee, sugar, spice3 and other tropical
productions for Victoria and for
transportation via the Canada Pacific
to Canada. She will connect at Man
zanillo with a line of steamers for
Hong Kong, which has been subsi
dized by the Mexican government to
make frequent and regular trip3 be
tween China and Mexico. The com
pany that has contracted with the
Mexican government for service is
the Campanie Mexicana de Naviga
tion del Pacific. It seems the Mexi
can authorities are anxious to en
courage immigration of the Chinese,
wishing to utilize them to labor on
the sugar and cotton plantations.
The company holds two concessions
from the Mexican government for the
introduction of Chinese labor. The
Sardonyx will carry from Victoria
a3 many Chinese passengers as she.
can accommodate, and will take in a
cargo of coals for the Mazatlan gas
works. At San Francisco she will
take on board flour and wheat for the
Mexican market. Mexico is going to

The London Grocer o January
80th says of the market of that city:
With some improvement in the
weather there is a slightly better
feeling in the market generally, and
although business has not percapt
ibly increased, inquiries have been
rather more numerous in nearly all
directions. Attention at the moment
is still centered chiefly in salmon,
for which the demand is unimpaired,
and4arge quantities are passing be
tween one wholesale house and an
other, and also from the import firms
into the grocers' hands, who are lay
ing in stocks, as they have been doing
for some time past, in anticipation of
the renewed wants of customers later
on. Supplies then may be expected
to show a marked falling off from
various causes, but here they are at
present sufficiently ample for all pur
poses, and the firmness with which
they are held proves that the article
is in a strong and favorable position.
Prices tend slowly upwards, and for
good merchantable brands in any
quantity, the nearest quotations that
can be given are 22s to 25s per case.
It is possible to buy at something
below these rates, but the quality
and character of the goods could not
be guaranteed, and it they went into
consumption they might obtain for
themselves a bad name, which as ap
plied to a "dog," is equivalent to be
ing condemned or hanged outright.
Of the Liverpool market the same
authority says: The demand for salm
on is unabated. The orders since the
opening of the year, though hand
some in the extreme as a total, clearly
show from the everyday repetition
that the purchases made have beeu
purely for hand-to -moul h requirment s
and that no stock of any kind is held
by the country dealers, nor, in fact, by
the trade generally. Several compar
atively small sales have been made
during the week for London, whilst
offers have been refused by holders
here for larger parcels when only the
slightest margin has been in question,
involving many thousands of cases,
thus clearly showing the strength of
Another report says: The demand
is steady, and although grocers have
been led to buy rather freely in con
sequence of the action of those who
have special interest in pushing up
prices, yet there is every reason to
believe that stocks are being slowly
consumed. It is advisable for re
tailers not to buy large stocks, as
such action tends to put up prices to
an unnatural point, and, as present
figures are 20 per cent, higher than
the lowest point of 1885, we do not
expect the consumption will at all ap
proach that of last year.

Bad to Leave the Children Alone.
A special from Tangier, Va., says:
On Sunday afternoon Captain W. L.
Truitto and wife went to Sunday
Bchool, leaving their four little chil
dren in the hou38. Three little girls
named Cooper, from a neighboring
house, came in, and while they were
playing the fire went out. Captain
Truitte's daughter, aged 7 years, put
some kindling in the stove, while an
other child struck a match and put it
to a can of coal oil by accident. A
terrible explosion followed. The child
who held the can was instantly killed
and a two-year-old boy was so badly
injured that he died in three hours.
The other Truitto children and three
visitors were horribly burned, but
may possibly recover. The house
was badly damaged, but the neigh
bors saved it from being burned.
