MemUv nstfrniiig's ilnllies brought th* Intelligence Hint James G. Blaluo dec-linos to bo .n caiidlilntn for llifl presidential noruinatloti and that liis n»mo vrll) not bo before the Mituioapolis con- veiitlon. Ills lstt*l- to Clinirraan Clark- ion It iliort anil-to tho point. Whiio wo have expected this news for a long time, mid while wo hnve thought that under all [lit circumstance! it ndght bo better thus, still tho latter, over the great statesman's sigualttro, brought with It a pang similar to that experienced at the news of the death of A very noar and dear friend. For twenty years wo hare been longing for tho nation to do jnsliec to its greatest statesman; and we could not quitu give up the idea 'hat perhaps Harrison, instead of Maine, would wrilo tho latter given to the oountry last Monday, and that there would yet bo achanco to honor the man who bad so brilliantly hon- oted his country. lint hope Is now dispelled, nnd the matchless statesman will never be pretident of tho United States. If he should live four years more tho weight of years and added inlirmitios weuld then certainly provont his candi dacy, as there is no doubt thoy Imvo prevented now, nnd did evon in 1888. Whou hi decided not to make tho ntco thou it was aluiot certain that ho would make the aatuo dcdiion now. Therefore ho must now be placed in the same catagory with Clay, Webster and Doug­ las—tho greatest man of his time, but the Fates decreed that he never would be president. While it was clearly his right that honorable position could add no laurols to his brow. When the names of a half dozeu ex-presidents aro forgotten the name of Hlaino will bo a household word throughout the civilized world. Like Gladstono he tt.iuds forth the greatest man of his country and his »je. This decision makes Harrison's "calling and election sure." The convention at Minmspolis will be little moro than a formality. It is thought that other names will be presented by way of complimeut, but after this is dono on tho informal ballot the best thing that can bo dene wi',1 be the nomination of Harrison by acclamation. Now that Blaine is not iu the tiald no man in the United Slates has any claim to Ike noin-' ination this yoar. Not th:it there is any lack of good and available material, but becauso there is almost universal conviction that either Harrison or Blaine should be accorded the nomination. So let the cry pass along tho lines "Harrison and victory!" A DEMOCUATIC saloon row and street fight took placo at Waverly Saturday. Why don't they follow the Poslvillo Review's plan and license shch thiug* to help pay for such needle.«s "luxuries" as schools and churches. -Waukon Standard. The hypocritical crank of the Standard go** a lon£ way and strains a point all out of shape in order to formulate a meaningless and unwarranted slur and inuendo against the UKVIF.W. Perhaps the erudite brolhor might explain to "a waiting congregation" hovr much better and respectable such rows, which are occurring overy day under prohibition aro than the samo praotiees would be under local option license. Wavor- ly, like Waukon and Postville, and all other portions of tho state, is under the benign influence of prohibition, and it it unreasonable to suppose that suoh demoralization could exist under such a stringent and beneficent law! And especially so when wo aro told by such undoubted authority as the Standard that the law is enforced as well as auy other criminal statute! But if it is true thai the law is violatod in Waverly (as It is almost overywhero to a greater or leu extent) would it not ouly be good •eat* but good business to havo $2,000 •r 93,090 coming into the treasury, and relieve tlu tax payer to that amount, to •ay aothiug of the benefits of restricting and regulating the trafttu? If Waverly, Waukou or any other town wants prohibition they will continue to have it. So what is the s»uso in kicking to lustily against local option! 1 Now that RlaitiR is out of tho Held the democrats will think twice before nominating Cleveland, even if they could do do. They cannot forget that he was signally defeated four years ago by the same mnn that is now suro to bead the republican ticket, and the prestige of tills stuto of facts would decide the contest in advance. There is littlo doubt but this prestige is what influenced Ulaiuo to withdraw moro than any other consideration. Tho impression prevail*, nnd doubtless with geod reason, that no man who has once been defeated for president can therenftor be elected. Tho democrats will dare not again pit Clcyeland against Harrison. At we see it the maRt absurd proposition that has been urssented to the logitlalnre on tho liquor question is for county option. What anybody wants of option by counties we enn 't understand, nnless it is the hope that the eoutitry townships will overcome tho vote of the towns and thus retain prohibition la loclities whore the vote of the towns would be for license. This might bo true iu a Tory few instances but whoro tho saloons were thus kopt out of one town we boliovo thoy would be forcod into a half dozen others evon though opposed by the ponple of that town. Suppose that Fayetto county should vote for license. How would you keep the saloons out of the town of FnyettoP And in counties having largo cities what show would there bu for tho small eutlyiug towns to shut out the saloon if they wanted to? The whole sohume of coanty or state control we believe to be impolitic and unwiso. If prohibition is enforced anywhere it must largely bo done by the local municipalities and tho backing of tho people of tho towns. As well hare state ns county option.

Wtion I left St. Paul on tho eve of Dec. »2d iu a "Tourist" on the Canadian Pacific Railway, my feelings were those of rather a "quiet" interest in the country through which I was to pats anil for which I was bound. In fact, I might truthfully add that my "chief" eoucein was in tho "Tourist" —tho car iu which my life was to be confined for the noyt four days and nights—and its oerupauU. A glanoe about as 1 tutored the eoach showed it to be clean and almost new and though dovoid of many ot the comforts of tho Pullman it did not impress mo as a cheerless placo to "liye" in for a few •ays. The scats wore upholstered in leather, a carpet ou the isle, curtains for our berth, plonty of bedding and a "kitchen" at the roar end of the coach .vhere ono could coolc at their pleasure (?). A good naturod looking porter was in altendanoe and so tar everything promised well. And now for the occupants. At the rear end of the car wore two ladies with only "seven children. This savored of the "emigrant" and SBC:-.:'sil first thought a drawback to tho enjoyment of the jour noy, but as thoy only wont to Wiuni- pog and that was reached early in the aftoraoon of tho lirst day out, thoy did not provo of tho least annoyance. Indeed, we quite missed the "chime" of tho seven "musical" voices. A lady and gentloman were in tho berth diagonally across from mine, which was in center of coach, and upon my St. Paul friends, who had aocompaniod me to the train, uiakiug soma conversation with tkem found out that thoy would be companions all tho way; thoir destination being Everett. Wash., and their names Mr. and Mrs. Casey, from Omaha, Neb. . Thoy proved to be very pleasant traveling companions. Directly across from my berth was a gen­ tloman who next day turned ont to be, nobody more or loss, than one of tho "Smiths" from San Fraucisco. In the berth directly back of mine was a Mr. Rood from Sacramento. Theso were tho only occupants of the "Tourist" at we steamed out of St. Paul for our ride of about 2,000 miles across the continent to tin Paoilic coast and the much talked about region of Pugot Sound —that part of our country whioii at present leeuii to be attracting universal Interest and of which lutioh that "rounds" marvolous it related. Beforo etiring for tho night 1 had tpoken witli Mrs. Casey a,ud Mr. Casey with tho gop'.leman and thus began the acquaintance, wlneh for the time we were to bo together was to be a very pleasant one. We retired early tho first night, but I think in thn slight conversation we had with eaoh other, we all retired with our minds some what oleared from all double at to the comfor'.t and respectability ot traveling on a seoond-ulais ticket, "Tourist style." My fears in this direction boing "toothed" I found ray interett awakening in what was before me for the uext four daye. When we ilrtt saw the "peep of day" the next uuu-ulng (Wednesday, Deo 23d) we found ourselves at Graud Forks, N. D., and instead of rain and a mild temperature at wo had left at St. Paul we found tho ground covered with tnow and very cold. Those of tit that had our lunch along breakfasted iu tho car and by the way, "never, etc.," come thit way without a lunob. There are many timet when you don't fuel like going out of the oar and the hsurt for mealt are very irregular. (Of course, you are all coming out here tome day and any suggestions of mine at to the comforts of the trip will be heedei by you when the time comet.) L«t mo tell you tome other attractive features of having a lunob along. You oan give "dinner parties" and Invite thoie who are not to we'l provided as yourself, We did to aud the uovelty of the thing added much te> tho good feeling already entertained towardt each other aud wo hnd overy bit at pleasant a time a* though we had tot down to a "tproad" in one'* own home. There it a good range In the. "kitchen" ton o*ot*d with that* oart, None of ui had oouie prepared to- cook, but we mate ag*.d twraakeeome toast and later on MIDI -fltlflRie aud hud groat fun in 19 od Wednesday forenoon seemed to me devoid of any special interest at this! tiuio of tho yoar, as seen from the car window, unless it be the stacks of grain—showing what nn abundant crop these vast prairies must have yielded tins seasou—and its snow-walls (or snow broaka as they are called) telling how long and how cold their winters must be to make such "walls" practical. These walls are made of blocks 01 snow in regular "stone-wall" form and are for tho purpose of keeping the snow from drifting across the track. As wo nearcd the Canadian lino, at Uretua, I think, a pompom looking individual passed through tho car and sung out: "Opon your baggage for inspection." He shortly returned and at thn "open baggage" cast a "look" of examination and with a hurried chalk mark on the objects of his inspection, we wero labeled as proper persons to onter the Queen's doraaiu. As Winnipeg was our firs' stoppiug placo of any special note, we donned our wraps and prepared to "do tho town" as our train ueared tho station. Our interest in the Queen's land, however, quickly abated as we came in contact with the koen and stinging cold air, and our sight seeing was confined to a very small area, that immediately surrounding tho dopot. The street leading to the city from this point was of unusual width and alive with tho jingle of tho merry sleigh bells and fino looking horses attached to all sorts of turn-outs. Nearly everyone I had on fur overcoats and caps and all looked cold. Tho buildings in this part of the city were small aud uninteresting and looked more like 01. e of Uncle Sam's small country towns than it did like anything owned by h Queen. A short brisk walk satisfied us nud wo tenderfeet" gladly returned to onr warm and comfortable coach in which by this time wo were fully "at home " But ou our return we found wo were no longer "raouarchs of all wo surveyed," as n gentleman and lady had takeu possession of one of the compartments while we were out. Many were the surmises as to "who" and "what" thoy were, all but ono declaring them to bo a "bride and groom" nnd I may as well "paste it right in here" that they proved a delightful addition to the i pirty, at least, and to bn a Mr. and Mrs. Anderson from Smi Franoiseo. As wo loft Wiunipog aud started across that section of the Queeu's land known as Manitoba we could see nothing before us and about ns but what seemed a boundless expanse of prairie land covered with snow. Occasionally we passed a small station but nothing particularly attractive at this time of the year. Not oven a tree was to bo seen to enliven tho monotony, though the Railway Guides (?) tell us that "thore is a continuous lino of well-tilled farms, with comfortable farm houses peoring out from among the troos." We shall have to tako their word for it and call it a "vast" farming country, whieh was what it looked like. As there was nothing outside to attract us our attention was turned to life insido tho coach and wo read, wrote, crocheted or visited as wc felt most inclined. By four o'olock it was dark. Thursday morning wo found tho country a littlo more rolling and a hord of reindeor, a wolf, an owl and "Lo, the poor Indian" witli buffalo horns to soli fer "two dollar" appeared on tho scene and made things a littlo moro iutoresting. The mounted police also stalked" through the car at evory station "booted and spurred," with their red coats and brass buttons, calculated to strike terror to tho hearts of those who wore smuggling liquor through the country, for Mr, John Bull's northwest territory is a prohibition country and rigidly guarded. Our consciences being at rest on this point the "impos ingly arrayed" police only served as curios" to our party aud a great curiosity soized me to "interview" ono. Opportunity presenting itself at Medi- oiuo Hat, where a garrison Is stationed and where we made a stop of 80 min utos, I availed myself of it, but like most "interviews" it didn't amount to muoh. Their prinoipal duties are to look after contraband liquors and to keep the Indians in order. We took a thort walk about town and made a shorter investigation of the storos, which wore loo much liko Unole Sam's country stores to make us fuel that w* were in a foreign country, besides the iuteuiu cold here, ns wall as at. Winnipeg, toon drove ut itidoort although the "interviewed" aisuted m* that they didn't call it oold weather yet, "Walt," ho said, "nntll it is 40 below." Tho invitation wat deolined "with thanks." Evidently our party wat as much of a curiosity to the natives at they were to us, for wn both stared at each other to our heart's content. 1 tried to talk with somo of tho squaws who bad horns to toll, but they ouly laughed at ma and then we all laaghed. I mutt not forget to relate how Thursday morning our party had been iuoroased by a Baptitt clergyman and wife from the "Pullman"—.a Mr. and Mrs. Cummingt, of Bancroft, Iowa, bound for Tauoma. They had boon passengert all tho way from St. Paul, but had been in the Pullman, where, in spite of upholstered oomforts and the privilege ot -paying double fare, they -had gotftozen out and were glad to avail themselves of teoond-olats aooom- modatlont, where, they were kind enough lo *ay, they found firtt-olass pooph), at loast. We "modestly" bowed ourthanki and teoretly congratulated ouriel vet that we had oouie in th^ Tourltt. W* made the new-comer* at home and'they tlaid with ut the rest of the way. 'We retired early Tbuntdey night for the next morning would find tf* In the Booklet, the them* of conver •atlon for the meet of the way, and for which we were eagerly waiting, niing description of this locality, but seen from one's berth in tho early dawn at this lime of the year you do not got much of an idea of it. As soon as it was daylight wo wero ready with eager eyes lo onjoy tho scenery through whieh we wero passing. At first tho Rockies were a disappointment—not as grand as pictured in one's mind. Later in the day, howover, our anticipations wcio fully realized and we had no ca'.iso for disappointment. Some three hours ride from Banff brought us to field, a small railway eating station in the mountains and at whieh we took our Xmat breakfast. The hotel was built of red cedar logs and in a moat artistic manner. The dining room was exquisitely arrangod aud decorated with cvergreltns and holly, and the breakfast and service as tempting and as good as though served in tho heart of some thriving city and all this thousands of miles away from one. Your astonishment increases ns rcu stand on tho stops of the hotol and glanco about you. You see nothing but gigantic mountains and snow all around you; there is seemingly 00 outlet and yon arc somewhat mystified as to how you roally got there aud if you aro to wako up and find itnil a drcani, but as your glance falls on tho steaming, puffing iron horso before you it brings you back to the world you havo come from with a kconer realization of the power of the steed beforo you lo surmount all obstacles in its pathway as it carrys comforl* and brings mountains within your reach. Our ride from Field to Glacier, whore wo stopped for dinner, was ouo full of interest —uow speeding through can- ous; now skirting the baso of some moiiutait; now crossing deep gorges where the waters rush iu torrents from tho mountain side and over which engineering skill has constructed wonderful bridg»s. making our road-way safe and easy; now whizzing through f now sheds aud tunnels, ns merry aud fast aB a boy ooasling down hill. 1 took all this in from the, roar end of the Pullman aud it was a grand sight. You have no idea of its grandnsss from my description ai.d it is impossible to describe lo you by pen and ink (typewriter) all one feels and sens in personally beholding tho beauties of God's handiwork as the iron horse carrys you swiftly across the big prairies of Manitoba, ovor, through and around thu Rocky, Selkirk* and Cascade Ml?., and lands you ou tho Pacific const whure new delights await you and where you feel vary much inclined to pursue your "westward course." Mi adviue to you is lo come and see fui yourselves. Wc readied Glaciot about 8 o'clock Xmas day. where another red cedar log house tastefully arranged made us comfortable and showed us that wn wero still in civilized lauds. Tho mountains had beeu constantly growing idoic interesting as wo followed the many turnings and twisting* of the Kickiughorso river. At this point wo had our tirti view of lli« great Glacier. It did not fully rues' our expectations as it was cloudy and tho surrounding mountaius were so covered with snow thai it detractud from the Glai'ier. Such quantities of snow had fallen &• Glacier that tho settlement looked as if it was literally buried in snow. The platform at the station had been cleared from the snow but to get to the adjoining buildings paths had bean cut through the snow which was overyear head. Directly, on leaving Glacier our ride became very exciting. The road making several turns and passing through tunnels and snow sheds in rapid suceessiou oil its way out of tho mountains for we were now on our "downward course" ChrUtmas ovo our party wero regretting that wo had not procured some evergrtieui to t'eoorate our car with and to observe the day in a fitting manner, but Xmas day it was 0110 constant exclamation of delight from lirst ouo and another at the beautiful Xmas troes all around us and so bountifully laden with tnow that it made tho most charming Xmas trees one could imagine. I never saw a prettier sight. You know how pretty your trees look aftor an icy turn? Well, thuv are nothing in beauty compared with tho trees loaded with snow through the mountains. The trees are Tory tall, 400 feet or more, rod cedar, tho wind never blows and the snow lays just whoro it falls. Ou tba stump* and boulders it looks liko loaves of perfectly frosted cako when the pans am turned bottom side up aud the loaf on the lop of the pan, only the leaves of eak* aro vory diminutive in comparison with the size of tho loave* of tnow. Think of riding through suoh tress for a day and a half. I can I toll you how exquisitely pure overyihing seemed. [ have omitted to relato that the night before Xmas "whan all through j 'ho house, etc.," Mr. Casey Insisted upon hauglng up his stocking. As he was tho last on* to go to bodand tho first to arise ho didn t find anything in it but another hola he claimed. I thought it was too bad not to havo somo fun out ot it so I suggested to one of the party that we giro him a "Diamond Pin" (dimo and pin) wbioh.wo accordingly did. presenting it to hlua in a big rod lunoh box and with appropriate coromony by our olergyman. It brought forth n merry rosponse from Mr. Casoy and I believe nnno.of ns.will over forgot our Xmas in the Rookies or our presents, for let me whisper to you that some good and thoughtful friomls of mine arranged it so that I had sqme Xmas gifts to enjoy that day that were moro real and substantial than a "Diamond pin." A Rhmn »tono photo frame and a pearl hand e gold pen were very pretty and aoeeptabla arli olos to find in nue'a paokage* labeled "to bo opened Dnc. 25tb." Long live the donors Daylight lasts so short a time in thit coiiutry that by four o'clock our tight seeing* wat ovor and w* had time to visit with earh other and to onmuare notes. All felt the day had been a busy one, full of interest aud never to be forgotten. Jok»s, conundrum*, speeches and singing wero indulged in and nil voted that Xmas 00 tho road had been an itnjoyable ono and to be numbered among the vory pleasautcst that we had ever spent. Tfbon we awoko the next morning w* wero at North Bend, B. C a very easy little town nestled among tho Cascade mountain* on tho Fraaier river and where the train ttops for break- fait. Mr. Casey went out and soon rod coffee enough for the party, and we breakfastod in tho oar. Some 'of the time we had taken our meal* in the dining oar, sometimes we had gotten ont at tho ,uelty station*, where we always got slue meals, but oftener we had lunched out of our own provisions We took 0 our last breakfast together to dispose of what wo had left a* we-were •oou to take the boat where lunohtng would not be allowed. The side Saturday morning through British Columbia by tbetldo of the Frasier rlver^aji a delightful one. Indeed, we thought ' •" " Huwhen mm we had a inure extended viow and were not so shul. in. 1 wish I could paint in words vividly enough to bring lo your Tisi"" as \v« crossed the Frasmr river. Hie beautiful green of Ilia river, Hie trees and shrubbery covered Willi snow laid on so liglitlv and so much of i'. (I called it feathers), the foot-hills near us with their bright green cedar trees and another kind of a tree just budding out that hnd a reddish brown color, tho blue mountains with snow in tho distoncc, the clear sky and bright sun over ail—truly the nig hi. was an inspiration for an artist At Mission Junction, H. C, wo had our first parting, Mr. and Mrs. Anderson leaving us hi're for Vancouver, whero they were to take steamer for 'Frisco. Wc parted from thorn with regret and many ploassut jestings, but whother thoy were a litido and groom noao of us wore absolutely suro. Wo told them our surmises, at which they laughed heartily, but discreetly said notliiig. As we turned our way southward from Mission Junction the country began to tako on a different look and the snow soon disappeared ami the tall fir trees attracted our attention. The branches are so far up from the base of tiie trees that I callou them Noah ark trees. As wn noarod Ilia states again and another inspector appeared we had a pleasant surprise. Hn happened to ask Mr. Cummings if lie came through from the states and to Mr. Cummings reply that he camo from Iowa, I heard tho inspector say that that, wis bis state. Of course I was immediately "on deck" lo inquire what part and received answer, "Cedar Falls." It is needless to remark that I at onee fell on his nook and wept tears of joy (mentally) when I found him to be a friend of my dear friend, Mrs. Hall, of Cedar Falls, and n brothur of Mr. Snj der, of Cedar Falls, who is also a friend of mine. Well wo had 11 "picnin" sil". around for Mr. Smiih had proven a former resident of Cedar Falls and the mooting brought pleasure to him as; well as myself. This liltlu surprise added to our enjoj nient of an alroiuly pleasant trip and was a pleasant ending to our ride iu the "Tourist 47b'," for at New Whatcom, Wash., we left the coach for the ."(earner Premier and a ride of 100 miles on Pujol Sound. Tho porter expressed miinh regret al our departure and said that il was not often that he had a party aboard that ho liked as well as he did us. We hardly knew whother this admiration was due to onr personal charms or thn fees that had boon liberally given him. j Wall whieliorwr way it was ho bad | been real uico to us and we would have liked 10 have kept him with us to our journey's and. Wo found the sound qnile rougu and as tho boat on its trip up from Tacomii had had a sorious time some i 'eais were ontcrtainud as to our safe arrival, but thry wen- not realized ns we put into port safely about two o'clock in the morni..g though some two hours Into. Il grew dark so soon after we look the boat I hut we had 110 opportunity of piijoiing the maguilieoiu scenery as we plowed lb rough liie tempestuous water. Our pM"ly seemed to have control >f the Imal as much as we had tho car ami we wandered about with freedom nnd enjoyed ourselves with nidi oilier ss we hsil done all the way. Wu were so happy togcihor Hull wc seemed u> attract everyone 's attention ami were soon on speaking terms with those in our part of the lioat. Everybody was ready to sing tho praises lliis land and we felt our enthusiasm iiiciviisitig null every throb of our hearts, and that to terminate one 's jonrnev in MIICII a "land of lleulxh" was a ino.il lilting termination to onr trip- Brother met pic as thu boat landed and I A as the lirst 0110 to go ashore. It had been a long trip and the hut few hours ridu, of somo anxiety, made me jjlad to be safe and sound at my journey's end. When the boat wa» making its landing and I camo out on duck an-.l got my first view ot "Tac. O Ma" it seemed to me as if suspended in midair. Everything was in darkness about ma except the electric lights here and thore and as they were way above 1110 —Mis. Ilarman had lo return from Wisconsin on account of sickness in her own family, iler mother ditd before die arrived and her father was not expected lo live from ono day lo another.

I was quiekly al my brother's home where 1 found a pleasant weleomn from brother 's wife mid niece. Miss Nellie Count*, and a tempting little liiuuli. For fiavornl dnys felt ilia swiajrlng motion of tilt boat, and ears, a motion that made me feul I ivas still coin/ somewhere. It seemed atratigo enough at first to have dropped from a eonmrv buried iu snow to a country whuru tho grass was A bright frosh green, pansies, violets and rose* gn wing out doors nnd in many eased m bloom. To bo suru it rained, but who cares fgr u. littlo rale that's "dry" and for -'clean" mud after living in Chicago? It is cold enough to need light lire* and to wear winter clothing and yel the cold is not liko the cold with you. It makes mo shiver to think of the cold von endure in comparison with the cold we enjoy here. I have about arrived al the conclusion that everyouo in "Ta Co Ma" is mad on the subject ot Tacoma. All sing its praises and it does indeed seem marvelous. I do not wonder that thoy liken it to the (ireuk goddess, Minerva, who sprang full armed into existence." This is tho very worst time of the yoar to fall in love with tho placo but 1 feel the symptoms coming on and when tho beautiful days do eomo 1 shall probably bo ready to sing its praises louder than anyone olse. While it rains a great deal there are days aud hours whon It does not and there is a general look of soon clearing up and as though the euu was about to shine that takes away all the gloom of a rainy spell in the east. The nir is cold and dry and not damp and wet a* in tho east. I can prove this by telling you that one's frizzes are not affected by tho rain. This choice bitjpf information will be quite reinsuring to my gentlemen friends who aro contemplating a trip thi* way. 1 do not feel ready to urge everybody lo eome here to live, but I believe it is a charming and wonderful ooun- try with its resources undeveloped and I want nil my frionds to come and see it. Trusting I shall have the pleasure of welcoming you all to theso balmy shores iu the near future, I remain, Very kindly yours, LlZZIB A.. WllEKLHIt. T ACOMA, Wash., Jan. l»th, 1892. J. SHEPHERD M.
