The business section of the city commen the "flats" and extends northward, gradually dred feet, midway of the irregular section bordering on the bay, then as gradually diminishing lo seventy five feet altitudes, until Queen Anne Hill is reached —there sharp ly rising to an altitude of 450 feet — one of the highest points witniu the city limits. There are but three practical business streets, or avenues, run ning north and south in the pres- ent business district —from Third to Ninth, and for ten blocks north and south, the contour rises to a height cf 300 feet above the level of the sound. Ten blocks north of the old bus iness center —Pioneer Place —Pike street, running east and west at an elevation of about 100 feet is practically level for nine blocks.

accommodate through traffic, north and south, especially for the conve nience of freight trains passing the city. The opening of the government canal to Lake Union will add material ly to the city's "water front," for business purposes, as the south end of the lake lies close to the geographical cenier of the city, and is easy of approach from all directions. Because of the precipitous shores of Lake Washington, on the city's eastern border, the question of commerce on that lake will probably cut little figure, as far as the city proper is concerned. The lake, however, will prove a great and grand fresh water harbor for all shipping and a resort for boating and recreation for all time. The completion of the canal to this lake will undoubtedly serve to build up numerous towns on the eastern shores of the lake and on Mercer Island as suburbs of "Greater" Seattle. Greater Seattle's wholesale and retail business district will extend from the tide flats on the south to Lake Union and Que...

12 The Law and the Law Boys You asked me to write about the law —the law boys of Seattle. I agreed, making the condition that the sole title should be the one that appears hereto —that is, "The Law and the Law Boys." The reason that influenced me in so choosing of the subject and title is not exactly that I wished to be unique, but because I wanted no one to attempt to read the article unless he has an interest in the subject. By the words "law boys" I mean those who, after all, are a set of "boys" who really ask but litle of and truly receive but little from newspapers. From time out of mind the lawyer has been regarded a little different than that of the ordinary man who sought by his taints and abilities to get along in the world. His own education, environment, training and even arro gance has been of this character. The general public have so placed him. He has been called learned, an officer of the court and as professional and to him there has consequently been denied much th...

The Seattle Bench and Bar Hon. Robert Brook Albertson, who hails from North Carolina, has lived here for nineteen years. Served as corporation counsel for Seattle, twice elected to the legislature, was speaker of the house and is now one of the superior court judges of this county. A son of Erin is John Arthur. Practiced law in Seattle sixteen years, is a leading Mason of the Northwest. Though fifty-four he is still in the vim and vigor of life and enjoys a most lucrative practice. The bar of the state mourn the untimely death of the late lamented John B. Allen. Eminent in the affairs of state and nation his death cast a gloom from Olympia to Washington City. Eleven years residence in Seattle has detracted none from the first impres sion Frederick Bausman made on his arrival from Pennsylvania. He is forty-one, stands at the top as an attorney and practitioner and does a heavy legal business. Texas never produced a brighter son than Alfred Battle. He has been a resident of Seattle si...

16 Seattle Bench and Bar —Continued Frank S. Griffith a few years ago was only a deputy in the county clerk's office. On retiring he was admitted to the bar and was given a deputyship in the county prosecutor's office. He is now one of the prominent attorneys. Twice a member of the legislature and now deputy prosecuting attorney is the record of Hon. Charles S. Gleason, who was born in Ohio thirty-four years ago, but has been in Seattle fifteen years. He has always been ranked high as an attorney. A brilliant young attorney, a logical member of the legislature and a magnificient presiding officer as speaker of the house an finally a most suc cessful corporation attorney is the record of Hon. E. H. Guie, who is only in the prime of life. Julius F. Hale, of Hale & Sachs, came from Illinois to Seattle fourteen years ago. He is forty-five years of age. As attorney for the Seattle Water way Company he has become an important personage. Federal Judge Cornelius H. Hanford is a Seattle ...

William Martin has an amount of law business that must bring him many dollars. He is successful in his undertakings and his volume of business is increasing daily. He has lived in Seattle for fifteen years. General James B. Metcalfe, a native of Natchez, Mississippi, has been in Seattle so long that he is almost a native. He is at the head of a law firm that does a remarkable amount of business. Being from Mississippi it is but natural that he push to the front in public affairs. John F. Miller, who is now successfully practicing law in the city, has been more or less prominent in the politics of this county, he having served four years as prosecuting attorney. He was a prominent candidate for superior court judge last year. Ohio has a noble son in the person of Will H. Morris, the criminal lawyer of the Northwest. He has been in Seattle for twelve years and has worked his way from the bottom to the very topmost round of his profes sion. He has won more murder cases than any other l...

18 King' County Court House The public has heard much in recent years concerning the county court house situation. The epithets and abuses that have been heaped upon 1 Profanity Hill" would fill a small volume. In view of the greatly increased wealth, population and business of King County, the present situation of King County court house is not as convenient as it should be. The pres ent board of county commissioners very wisely recognizes the present growth and increased business interests of the county and that the present site of the court house is inadequate and the ground space far too small for fu ture needs, have purchased a commodious and suitable site at the corner of James and Third avenue. Without doubt on this block will be erected a convenient structure of modern type suitable for the needs of the county for all future time. The present court house was built in 1891 by Robt. Smilie, under Architect W. A. Ritchie. The board of county commissioners at the time Fred Gasch...

20 King' County Official Roster EDWARD CUDIHEE. The rapid rise in the minds of the citizens of King county o£ Edward Cudihee, the present sheriff, is too well known to be here recounted. From a city detective he rose to the highest position- in the county and that too despite the fact that he made the effort to do so through the aid of a party that was hopelessly in the minority. He has been twice elected to the high position he now fills and is widely spoken of in connection with the next Democratic gubernatorial nomination of this state. Mr. Cudihee is a thorough American and therefore the honors which have been given him by his fellow citizens have made neither the egotist or self opinionated autocrat of him. He is a New Yorker by birth, is fifty-one years of age and has been in Seattle since 1889. William Tecumsech Scott, prosecuting attorney of King county, has been more or less in the public eye for the past eight years. He served as corporation counsel for the city of Seattle...

22 DR. J. J. SMITH. Dr. .1. J. Smith, who represents the Thirtieth Senatorial District in the legislature hails from West Virginia and though he has been in King county for fourteen years, yet he has only been officially identified with her political history for the past five years. He served one term in the lower house, one term in the senate, filling Senator Wooding's unexpired term and has served two of another four years term to the senate to which he was elected in 1902. His associates honored him at the last session by elect- i O. A. TUCKER. ing him president of that body thus making him one of the foremost men of the state. He is a regular practicing physician at Enumclaw, where he has extensive property interests. A. T. VAN DE VANTER. A political history of King county without the name of A. T. Van De Vanter would be as incomplete as a history of Washington without the county of King mentioned therein. He practically founded the now thriv ing city of Kent, which was organize...

24 The Mayor and His Appointees R. H. THOMSON. If there is any one employe of the city to which the citizens are under obligations for faithful performance of duty that one is R. H. Thomson, who for the past ten years has performed the duties as city engineer and chairman of the board of public works of this city. Had not Mr. Thomson come to the rescue of the city when the financial vultures had almost ruined it under the Ronald administration the growth of Seattle would have been seriously crippled and the prosperity that she is now enjoying she would never have known. Since he has had charge of the engineering force of the city it can be safely said that in the neighborhood of ten million dollars internal improvements have been expended and that vast sum has been han dled and disbursed and not a scintilla of scandal one way or the other has ever been breathed or even thought of, so far as he is concerned. That of itself is a compliment to Mr. Thomson that should make his children'...

26 well both the applicants for situations as well as the applicant for help, and makes quite a bit of effort to find each such a person as will the more easily harmonize the one with the other, and in this Mr. Grout seems a perfect adept. Hundreds and thousands of persons have been sent to good homes by him for which he has subsequently been heartily thanked by such persons. He is complete master of the labor situation in this city, owing to the fact that he has given it close and careful study. As an employee of the city, clerk of the board of public works, Mr. Bagley is a man in whom the most implicit confidence can be im posed. To him there is something more lhan to merely put in his time so as to draw his salary or the giving of pert answers as is so often the case on the part of persons under civil service regulations, but he strives to render value received for the salary he draws and be just as courteous and gentlemanly to persons dealing with the city as if he was in the em...

Who was pronounced a diamond in the rough by one of the men who nominated him some two years ago, has more than made good the expression, for he has cut a wide swarth in the city council since he has been a member thereof. One of the men who fought the nomination of Mr. Mullen the hardest and felt the most deeply chagrinned at the likes of Frank Mullen being nominated to the city council, was overheard to remark a few days ago, "Mullen is the best and most conscientious councilman that the city has." He has served but two years of his four year term. He is engaged in the hotel business. CAPT. JOHN TAYLOR. An honored veteran of the great civil war is likewise an honored veteran of the city council. He has served the city in that capacity some eight years and still has two years more to serve before his present term expires. Capt. Taylor has frequently been criticised by a restless public since he has been in office, but time has always proven the correctness of the course he persued ...
