We left there in the I evening over the Canada Pacific railroad, whose officers treated us kindly. There were about 25 persons in our car, J and we had plenty of room. All the ( passengers on our train were quiet and orderly ]>eople, but I felt most at home with our own party, of ladies we J had very few, Miss Birdy Parker being the only one in our car. Women do not travel much through this country, which accounts for the high wages received by the servant girls her#. rho first night the thermometer fell to j Hi) below zero, hut we slept well and comfortably. The scenery along the ! road, alter we got a certain distance ! from st. Paul, was nothing to brag of, all level prairie, with an occasional inhabited dwelling <a miserable hut) to I break the monotony. I was told that | from 20 to 40 bushels of wheat per acre I could be raised on these prairies, hut nothing could induce me to settle here. j Around Grafton and Auburn in Dakoit.^ we saw some timber, and it looked I as though some prosperous farmers lived then*. When we got within a , couple of hundred miles of the inoun- j tains tho country looked more barren, and was inhabited only by the police and tin* workmen at the stations. We had police on the train in Panada most of the time. The weather has been nice but very cold, with clear sky every day, and hardly any snow on the prairie. A number of Indians came on the train and sold buffalo horns at from 75c. to $1 JBO per pair. As we came up in the mountains it grew colder, and tile snow got deeper, and at one place a terrible snow storm was raging. The track is laid on the side of the mountains and along the rivers as much as possible, and consequently it is very crooked. We saw some magnificent sights here; looking up we could hardly see the top of the mountains, and 2u<J or DUO feet below us we could see the sparkling waters of the river. The crevices and gulches which the road runs over are bridged, and it seems awful to cross them. We passed through several tunnels and snow sheds. Small trees are growing on the mountains, and people live all along the road; their homes are miserable shanties, built of round logs. As we came near Vancouver the snow disap-I*eared, and grating cattle were seen on every liana. From Vancouver we went with steamer to Victoria, then changed boat for Tacoma, laid to at Port Townsend and Seattle, and arrived at Tacoma on the 23d, at 5 p. rn.

Our year here was so remarkably successful that we are determined to give even first We were now at our journey's end, and a very pleasant one it had been. J. ii. Parker met us at the wharf, and we were soon lost in the city. I went un town and found my brother I*. II. Nelson and family hale and hearty, and well satisfied with the city of Tacoma. It has rained considerably since came here, but it comes down still and never pours down as it does in Minnesota. There has not been a day hut what people have worked out doors since I came here. The streets are dry and level, and run north and south; they are handsomely laid out, and eleven are graded about three miles. The city is located at the head of Commencement Bay on a hillside, about 800 feet above the sea, The streets lie one above the other like benches in a circus tent, and the hay can be seen by all. The panoramic view is magnificent; before you are the calm waters of tile bay and the green foliage of the islands in the sound, and behind are the Cascade mountains and the great monarch Mt Tacoma reaching heavenward 14,444 feet. The mountains are 60 miles away, but it looks as though it is only an hour’s walk to them. There is quite a building boom here, 250 houses being under construction, keeping over lout) carpenters busy, but there are many unable to obtain employment. A good deal of work is being done on the streets and sewers, but hundreds of common laborers are inquiring for work every day. This is no place for a poor man to come to; people here have no time to sympathize with them. The city is for the capitalists, and I am satisfied to leave it to them. Heal estate is very high, and has doubled iii value the past year. No farming land can he found near Tacoma, the soil being gravelly and covered with stones. Tacoma has 6 school houses, a seminary, and 19 churches, and it also has 47 saloons. I don’t know how many inhabitants it lias, but people are pouring in here every day. II. E. Nelson.

I SdiUtf .Stonefort/.* * * * i came here about a month I ago; Bartholomew /my friend from I < Tiicago) and myself bought a eon tm H-j ing interest iii the Buckley Lumber Co.; a stock company was organized I last August and run by a lot of inex-I perieneed men. We reorganised the j company and are now running it on j tin* .Minneapolis plan. We are cutting j 25,UU) feet per day of ten hours, and can sill three I inns that amount. Our I trade is almost entirely east <>i the I Cascades, hut we can go riglu into Tacoma ami compete with any of them if we chouse. Our lumber is aboot one-third each fir, spruce and cedar while tin* mill at Cig Harbor has scarcely nothing hut fir. spruce is SP* per cent lighter to ship than fir, si* we can put it down east of tin* mountains much cheajxir than the fir mills can do. but if they want we can give them ail the Cir they need as we have contracted for 25 million feet of fir on the stump and | have 9 years to cut it in. We have the same amount of each spruce and cedar i aud as fast as they grow up we shall 1 close contracts for os much again. We I have IO to 12 years to cut it in. We ar** j cutting about as much on carli half i section as they want to clear about 20 to 25 acres. We have about 3,Sod to! 4,000 acres of the finest timber avail-1 able to us which iv** have now so stir-1 rounded and cut into, so we will get the I whole of it and our lumber her** goes over 50,000 feet to Hie acre. ^ OU see we ! have al*out 150 to 175 million feet of ! timber iii sight; it costs 50 cen ta per j thousand ft. on the stump anti 83.00 in summer aud 93.5** in winter to get it I _ logged and delivered to our ship at PIM1 ll ;1,'.* 'V •“l* mill; so the logs that cut 600 to Roo on .x\m\ .......... the (Sound we get lor SASO and 9-1 .on. I In fact we can sell lumber cheaper than they buy their logs; hut time will tell who become millionaires or paupers. We like it well here all our family, hut Mtilitnan’s folks are homesick, ami I guess they will go hack to Minnesota pretty soon, as he thinks it is too hard work in the mill. Buckley has 3o> to 400 inhabitants, a good hotel, two good stores, another hotel to be Md IL good school house, etc.; there are 15 or 16 new houses under construction; it is a splendid soil about lmre,lt*vel and black as any of the prairies around Albert Lea. There are tin**1 shingle mills within two miles of this town. The town has ail been built since last August. I fear I have strung this out too much; now visit us and I will tell you th** rest.

One of the largest holders and dealers in mining and railroad stocks in the northwest, who has all along bevil familiar with th* preliminary dealings of the great steel combine with its 925,060,060 of capital, admits to a reporter that at present the outlook for small mine-owners is not at all bright and the combination, with tin* present tendency of combinations, may drive many of tlivin to the wall. Accentuating the above, the Chicago Inter Ocean, the high-ta ri ff organ par excellence says: “The iron trade lias been in a bad shape for a tong time and the negotiations entered into by these three great firms will, if consummated, effectually put an end to local competition, will restore prices to a firmer basis, mid strengthen the market materially.” We call the attention of the public to the above statement so unblushingly put forward and remind said public that they are directly in conflict with the reiterated promises and predictions of every advocate of trade restriction in this or any other country. The promise of protection, per se, has been that it always tends to create and encourage local competition, which iii turn tends to reduce the price of the protected article, until thinly it can he sold below the price of the foreign product coming into competition with it; and thus that in this way protection always tends to lower, not higher, prices. On the other hand, we now have an acknowledged high-tariff journal asert-ing that, after twenty-live and more years of protection such as the world never before heard of, the steel-rail makers of the United States have just succeeded, by combining their capital, iii effectually putting an end to all local competition, iii restoring prices to their former higher basis, and iii this way have constituted the workingman, on the one hand, and the consuming public, on the other, their unresisting and helpless slaves.
