The year IS"*"!), snys the Selmmc dinette, marked 0
new era for Bollingham Boy and the entire comity ns
wull. The population of the county tins been nearly
doubled, as shown by the vote polled lust October,
whieh wus 2300. Loss thon a year previous, i. e., on
thra (Ith of November. 1S88, tho total voto of the county wos only 1230. The natural resources of Whatcom
county aro practically inexhaustible, She has billions
of foet of the finest timber iu the world, hundreds of
squaro miles of tho most productive agricultural landi
ami mineral wealth, whicli though os yet not accurate"
ly estimated, ia certainly very great. Her geographical situation alone is almost sufficient to guarantee
tlie up-liuiding of an important coininorcinl city. Another year will find on Bellinghain Bay a city of much
greater impnrtance thon to-day.
common carriers must grant eipial rights and equal
facilities to shippers; that their charges muat be reasonable, and that evory kind of business affected with
a public interest is subjoct to publio control, A flight
pressure from the English syndicates will load to tho
adoption of methods for lho prompt application of
these principles.
Boston seems to have fallen a Victim to Henry
George's single tax ideas, says un exchange. The executive bualness nssneiation, composed in large pnrt of
Boston'.? heaviest business men, und snid to be endorsed
by mnny of the largest property -holders, have recommended thot taxation for municipal purpurea be limited
tt) o aingle tnx^on real estate, holding that such a coitrto
would greatly stimulate manufacturing and commercial interests. If necessary, tbey suggest, this might
be supplemented by taxation of inheritances, legacies
ond incomes, nnd they confidently claim that undor
Lhls system thoro'could bo no delhiqudiipies, there
would be material reduction in tho cost of collection,
and the rote por thousand conld be reduced, If Boston can afford to try tho experiment (he i alance of the
world can afford to look on arid see how it woritB,
Tt will bo droll if the exemption of o largo proportion
of the property from taxation ahull liavo tha effect of
reducing the tax rote. But to Boston ingenuity
nothing is impossible'
Tub following editorial paragraph from tho Tacoma
Ledger explains itsolf, ond does not cast any particularly refulgent halo about Wnshieet-M's peg Btate
legislature: "Wo regret that -members of tbo icgisln-
ture are still disposed to trifle wllh tho question of
appointing chaplains. If tbey do net \vnut the Bar-
view of such oflicers they ought., nl; lenst, to sny so in
a dignified mannor. The Vicar of WakofieKl, when
In prison for dobt, attempted to have prayers with
his fellow-inmates. At first many of thom scoffed,
others jeered and nearly oil made light i f i ho exercise. But he persevered and finally tho coarse and j
trilling men, upon bis efforts, were made, one by one,
to yield somowhat to tho vicar, who Imd told them
that the serious thinga of life are of ihe mo 1 pormmi-
out interest. So we may again remind these Olympiu
gentlemen thot thoir coarse jokes ami horso play over
the cliiiplain ijucsi ion ore not only unworthy of the
position they occupy, but that tiiey belong to the class .
of trifling things which ore significant uliiofly of tho !
mental development bf the authors. Tbe Bcrions !
things of life-in- the tilings of lasting interest."
Ax American dbtumporary foresees trouble in ennae-
quorico of the monopoly whieh BiigHsli syndicates nro
so rapidly securing in various businesa enterprises in
tiio United States, nud discourses on   the  subject as
follows:      English syndicates hove now secured control  of  about one-fourth   of the largwt breweries in
tho United States, most of tiio groin elevators in Chicago and mnny of tho largest Hour mills in the Northwest.   Tho material advance in tha storage prices nt
Chicago elevators Ib a sign of what wo muy expect
from the operation of foreign ayudloatcs in this country.    But if the British jmt the screws   upon   thoir
American customers too tightly, the popular hostility
■ to monopolies will certainly be nggravutad.   Tbo at-
turueyo and statesmen who are always ready   to   defend domestic monopolies will he less successful when  i
it is found that tlio profits of monopolies nre going |
into foreign pockets.   A foreign monopoly j uml par- |
ticnlnrly a British monopoly, will be n very unpopn- t
lar uml hazardous thing for onr statesmen to suppoit.  [
When wu consider the high conl of   their   purchases,   i
the consequent necessity to do mi extraordinarily profitable businoBO, and tho practical certainty of pro- [
vbkhig great popular indignation, these new   English
syndicates are not entering on a polk of roses,   But !
it may bo well for the country that they arc thus likely to provoke a mora open revolt against  monopolies,
fir it -will be almost certain to hasten  tiio day when
they will be placed in fact, where in theory   thoy already are, under the control of the lnw.    Tlm principle is already established by our highest  courts (hut
The chief of police brought sorrow to the hearts of
most of Chinatown yesterday afternoon, He went
down and ordered every mother's son of them out to
shovel tho enow off the roofs of the shacks. And of
all tho borrow and contempt ami deep loathing disgust that ever wero seen since the rise in the price of
cool, the pick of them wero to bo noted oil tho dirty
faces of tho Celestial crow. They jabbered and swore
in tho choicest Pekinese, ami in the nine hundred nnti
forty-seven dialects of the Flowery Loud. The chief
wos inexorable, "Up with you, and get that snow oil'
double quick," said he. "A nice tiling if 1 bud to
write home uml tell your parents you gothoap smusbeo
up in yonr own building- here, you skulking son of n
chap-stick, coma out from behind that fence and go
Bhovel 'in anow oil" the roof." On'CG they got down to
work they didn't do badly, although with a prodigious
amount, of flngor-blowing and chattering of teeth.
The chief waited lo ace that no shirking wos done, uml
lhat every roof got a good scraping. But for this
prudent action of the chief, it is beyond doubt thai
some of she wretched Chinese hovels 'would hnvo collapsed hot night; und probably with loss of lifo or the
starting of a serious lire. As bus been described in
these columns Boveral times, the Chinese, when sleeping, huddle closely togothor, and it ia no uiiuomninn

is not very hard to imagine what would bo the of,co1

this season of the year the Celestial stoves nre kept
