AMONG THE STOCKTONIANS.
Pilgrim Hoffman's Researches in the

the Dead Past.
I havo just been porambnlating through
the streets of tho Slough City, taking in
tho sights, seeing the fashions and dodg
ing the police.
Stockton has some very wonderful
eights, and a very efficient police force.
Like the police of Red Bluff, they follow
mo continually to nee that no blood
thirsty thug who has no respect for
mental qualities shall dare to lay his
Band-bag pr his-rock-in-an-old-sock
across my thinker and create cerebral
disturbance just when I am in tho throes
of a great effort. It is very disagreeable
to be disturbed when one is in the throes.
It has happened once or twice to mo, and
in each ease the world—and especially the
part of it represented by the thug—was
Stockton is not a good place for men
■with meat heads. The people of this city
do not go into spasms of admiration over
a stranger who has a high and majestic
think-tank. Broad and intellectual
alabaster brows, with stern eyes, and a
dare-deviL cuss-word cast of countenance,
are rather below par in Stockton, because
Stockton is a very hotbed of intellectu
ality, and great heads are as numerous as
tho flowers that bloom in the spring.
Erudition just stews out of the people
here, and knowledge is absorbed easily.
If you should ask me now what is

In Stockton, I should reply: "Stockton,"

At present the peoplo of Stockton are
undergoing a general scrubbing. The
numerous gas wells hero furnish an
abundance Of water already boated to Bfi°
Fahrenheit, and this hot water is con
ducted to huge tanks, in which one may
not only free himself from the effects of
Stockton air, but shuffle off the mortal
coil if he fools like it. Nobody has been
missed as yet, but I am waiting for the
bad news to arrive.

sesses a flavor like the odor of stale eggs.

Although Stockton has been growing

etc., there are still a few ofthe
OLD LAND AHD WATKU-MARKS
That once oul lined the boundaries ofthe
infant city. The old buildings are rather
scarce, but along the banks of the dough,
half sunken in the mud, are several old
bulks that were once of no mean impor
tance to the people, who saw thetn come
and go with a lively interest. Old relics,
which bring back almost forgotten hap
penings to the minds of the old-timers
here, are not very abundant, but there is
enough or them to serve a reminiscent
purpose. As usual, the most prominent
ot the old rwics are those which suggest a
bygone disregard for law on one sloe and
a .stubborn adherence to it on the other.

wrists with rivets and could not be re

Nobody cares for this old graveyard
now. It was laid out so long ago that a
great many of those who are buried there
have been totally forgotten; their names
cannot be recalled, oven by the old timers
here who are yet among the living. It is
a place given up to the boys and the
weeds, and both boys and weeds are
growing up in harmony together.
Stockton is essentially an intellectual
city. The people are all sociable sort of
folks, and they keep themselves informed
as to all that transpires in the world. To
insure knowledge they support three
daily papers, one weekly, and enjoy the
benefits of a iirst-class free library. I
dropped into a Stockton sanctum a few
days ago and saw what I had supposed
OBSOLETE FEATURE OF JOURNALISM
In California. A pallid individual, whom
• I was told afterward was the Snake Edi
tor, was hard at work grinding out copy,
with a big six-shooter, a perfectly horrible
menace to indignant subscribers, with all
its chambers loaded for bear, lying on
the table in front of him.
"What do you keep that Gatling-gun
there for?" I asked.
"Oh," said the Snake Editor, "that is
just an old companion of mine."
And then I thought and thought! I
had sat in the editorial-chair myself for
many a long day; had been kicked and
whipped by irate citizens and angry
toughs; had had six-shooters rubbed un
der my nose and bowie-knives jabbed
through my whiskers, but I had never
seen the time when it was necessary to
keep a 45-caliber, solf-cocking cannon
lying on my table, a source of terror to
the innocent old women who camo in to
advertise for a lost reticule.
I have my opinion of the country ed
itor who does not feel safe unless he has a
gun displayed in easy-reaching distance.
The presence of a big gun in a country
sanctum is pretty good evidence that the
editor has uot been doing right or is an
arrant coward. But perhaps the pallid
young thing who is doing six-shooter
editorial work in tbe Slough ("ity has

cago, and I wish to state right here that
the report that Sam Davis of the Carson
Appeal, McGlashan of Truckee and me
are going to Chicago lo make doughnuts
for the World's Fair is a base fabrication.
The truth of tlie matter is as follow.-,:
Sam Davis, McGlashan and myself have
successfully negotiated for the use of six
teen Pennington air-ships: also, for the
use of a large brick building at Stockton,
which will be converted into a doughnut
fitctory. The air-ships will ply between
San Francisco and other California cities
and Chicago, making the trip botween
this coast and the Chicago depot in three
Each and every passengor who buys a
doughnut at the Stockton factory will be
entitled to one first-class passage* on the
Pennington air line at reduced rates,with
the privilege of dropping oil at interior
towns and way stations. The doughnut
will bo us-hI at the fair as a badge, and
will enable all Pacific Coast visitors
patronizing the Stockton doughnut syn
dicate and Pennington air line to recog
nize each other and compare notes. The
doughnuts will be made ofa si/.e suitable
for tbe preservation of life in case any
accident should cause ono of the air
ships to flutter down into the middle ofa
lake or run aground on the top of an un
inhabited mountain. Passengers killed
in collisions who bave one of our dough

A. V. Hoffman.
A well-balanced aud capable company
presented Gunter's drama. "Mr. Barnes
of New York," at the Metropolitan The
ater last night to a very largo audience.
The play will be repeated thisevening for
the last time. It is a melo-drama, with a
strong vein of humor running through
it. It is full of lino tableaux and strik
ing situations. It is a clean drama, and
if its literary merit is nil, it has the sensa
tional in such degree as io fully
satisfy the lovers of it. It
gives a glimpse of the inner
life of the class of Corsicans who con
sider the vendetta almost a sacred thing,
revenge to be an impulse invested with
tho very highest considerations of duty
and courage. The piece was received
with evident satisfaction by the targe
audience, and three of the leading peoplo,
Mr. Neill, Miss Wheeler and Mr. Block,
were complimented by a recall.

AN OFF DAY.
A Sort of Black Friday With the
Local Ball Team.
Thoy Couldn't Handlo a Sphere With
Any Dof_i*ee of Skill, and
San Jose Won.
It was not Hoffman's fault entirely that
tho Saeramentos lost yesterday's game.
The club played a wretched fielding
game, and notwithstanding the fact that
the visitors made but four safe hits, they
McGuirk exploded entirely. His mag
nificent work the day before must have
have had a bad effect on him, for he could
not play his position a little bit, neither
could he hit tho ball safely.
Stapleton at third baso also "went to
pieces," and, like McGuirk, could not get
a hit to his credit.
Works made one of the yellowest er
rors an outfielder was ever guilty of. The
ball was batted out to him on tho fly, and
he accomplished a most disastrous mull".
It was a raw misplay.
And finally, ye lovere of the sport, did
you see McCloskey and Sunday playing
bean-bag with the ball away out in the
shade of the right field fence? It was one
of those rare plays that sometimes drives
baseball managers insane, but fortu
nately the Sacramento proprietor did not
happen to see the remarkable piece of
fielding. .McGucken had hit the ball
hard, and the two fielders started on tho
chase. McCloskey got it first. Then he
tossed it to Sunday. Big Arthur tossed
it up against the fence, and caught it on
the rebound. He was going to give it to
Mc again, but finally concluded to throw
it in on tbe diamond. McGucken had
crossed the plate, and was taking a drink
of water when it got there.
The San Jose team was also out of gear
in its fielding work. McGucken dropped
a beautiful Ily; Everett made a rank
error, and retired from tbe game; Harper
dropped an easy fly ball; McVey let a
grounder roll between his feet;* Sneer
mulled an easy foul; Stallings made a
wil«l throw-, and Ebright found it hard
work to pick up grounders
San Jose won the gamo by bunching
on Hoffman in the fourth inning. Three
bits were made, and McGuirk's errors
came in handy in assisting men across
the plate. McCloskoy's and Sunday's
little play also happened just about this
Kfd Peeples and O'Day played great
ball, and Hanley was quite active in
guarding his position. Peeples was
spiked by Speer in the fourth inning,
while sliding to tho plate. He was not
prevented from continuing in the game,
however. Following is the score:

Highest of all in Leavening Power.—U. S. Gov't Report, Aug. 17, 1889,
TAYLOR ON HIS TRAVELS.
He Says He Was Given Only $17 In
It looks very much as if tho man
Taylor, who was lately here working the
sympathetic dodgo on our good people, is
making a business of that sort of thing.
The Marysville Appeal says of him:
"A man named Taylor, accompanied
by his wife and four children, the young
est of whom was 2 mouths and the
oldest 7 years, arrived on the Oregon ex
press on Thursday morning. Instead of
going to a hotel they camped in front of
the Odd Fellows' building. At about 8
o'clock in the morning they visited tho
police office and asked for Marshal
Maben. Taylor said that ho had visited
San Antonio, Tex., and had been robbed
of $784. He said that when ho got off tho
train ho asked to be shown a restaurant,
and that a man volunteered to show him
ono. On his way to the restaurant he
was joined by another man whom, ho
claimed, knocked him down and robbed
"Marshal Maben, who has a kind heart,
took pity on the children, ami said ho
w-ould try and raise somo money and
send them to Portland.
"From information he subsequently
received ho thought Taylor a fraud and
telegraphed to Chief of Police Drew at
Sacramento to make inquiries. He re
coived a reply which stated tbat Taylor
had received $70 and a pair of shoes in
Sacramento, and they thought ho was a
fraud. The Marshal, on receipt of this
telegram, refunded the $'J4 he had col
lected, and showed Taylor the telegram.
He admitted having been in Sacnunento,
and said that ho had only received £17
from tho police ollicers. When asked
where he had been since he left Sacra
mento, he answered that he had gone to
Truckee in search of a friend, fie said
he had borrowed .57 in Truckee to enable
him to bring his family to Marysville.
"Taylor did not seem to liko to bo
doubted in his statements, and to be ac
cused of being an impostor, so be went
with his family to Red Bluff last even
