SOLONS OF A NEW STATE The Mrst Lawgivers of the State of Washington. NOW IN SESSION IN OLD OLYMPIA. Tlie Personnel and Constitution of the Washington Legislature. First Legislature of Washing-ton. The following is a complete list of the members of the first legislature of Washington: SENATORS Adams, Franklin, Lincoln and Okano- H. Luce. Aaotin and G. Austin. T. Wooding. Clallam, Jefferson and San Henry Landes. B. Clough. H. Wolfe. E. Forsythe. Douglas and Paine. D. Wood, J. H. Jones, 0. D. Guilfoil, John K. Kinnear, W. V. Kinehflrt. The term of the supreme judges com- mence us soon as the state Bball have been admitted into the Union, and sessions will be held at Olympia until otherwise provided by law. It is provid- ed in the constitution that the supreme court shall always be open for the trans- action of business, excepton non-judicial days. A majority of the five judges shall form a quorum necessary to transact bus- iness and pronounce decisions. The Bal- ary of the supreme judges is fixed at 000 per anum. There is no provision expressly stating when the terms of. the superior judges shall begin, but it ie understood that they will enter upon their official duties at the same time as the supreme judges, eicept that they will not undertake pro- bate business until the probate courts expire by limitation on the second Mon- day in January, 1891. They will, how- ever, have appellate and reviewing juris- diction over the decisions of the probate judges. The superior judges recently elected are to hold their offices for three years, or until January, 1892, when, their successors are supposed to enter upon their four-years terms. The functions of the territorial judges, with the exception of their services upon the supreme bench, will be absorbed by the superior judges, who in addition will, after year, have original jurisdiction in all probate Klickitat and Hun- B-aker.

The state constitution provides that the senatorial districts shall be numbered the company intends to move the entire plant to this section, and begin lere the manufacture of woolen goods, on an extensive scale. The reason for the change is that Puget Sound is at the jase of supples, for both coal and wool, and offers equally as good advantages for shipping as San Francisco, while the market for the goods by rail is nearer by 700 miles. All these facts have so im- pressed themselves upon the company :hat they have suspended improvements at the Golden Gate city, until the matter can be thoroughly investigated. It is said that the representative mentioned has been corralled by men interested in Des MoiiJGB, andjhat correspondence is now under way as to the location of the factory at that point. Whatever place secures this new industry, it will result favorably for the entire section, because the factory will bring others. The con- ditions are so favorable here that the mills in other sections cannot well com- pete with the one established on the Sound, and so will be forced to come. It is to be hoped that EuiEcient induce- ments will be offered in. ihe'way of loca- tion, and shipping facilities, both by rail and water, to bring the new indus- try to Tacoma, or so near the city as to give it all the material benefit. PoeM officials state, that consicerable trouble and confusion is caused on ac- count ot many persons having adopted the abbreviation "Win." and "Wn." for the new state of Washington, Many people make a W so that it looks much like M, and the abbreviations mentioned are mistaken by jwElal clerks for Minn.
