low grounds the long continued wet
has killed many varieties or trees, such as
the eucalyptus, cypress and pepper, among
the shade trees, and the peach, apricot,

unharmed. No oraugo or lemon trees arc

The amount of rain fall was not so ex
cessive, twenty-four Inches only having
fallen with us; it was the surplus water
Irom tho mountains aud hills that caused
the misihicf. The raln continued so late
that much hay and grain has been injured.
Old a week ago in one of tee cauyons of
of the San llcrnardino mountains every
thing was swept away by a sudden and
heavy rainfall. Such rains are called
"cloud burst" so rapitl is the condensation
ami so great the precipitation. On the
whole tlie rain has douo much mole good
than barm. The inundated legions hive
been comparatively small, and even iu them
the complete saturation of the ground
which hail been dry so long, the increased
supply of water In tho springs and wills,
and the wholesale drowning of gophers
and giound squirrels has compensated
many fold for the damage done. In indi
vidual uses, however, farms have been
completely cut to pieces and theii owners
ruined. In the lower poitions ol Los An
geles city m my houses were washed away.
A near neighbor, an old settler, siid to me
last (all that he would almost be willing to
move up stairs If he coultl have a wit win
ter, and he did have a sheet of water from
one to two feet deep sweeping over his
farm lor several day still he was more than
willingtorry enough. My pastures were
submerged for several weeks, ami my
meadows too miry for the cattle to range
on, so we were obliged to mow aifall i and
birley and haul to them, and at times could
only cany feed vvitli our pitch forks.

'1 his is the height of the camping season.
All California goes camping. The deiirc
ami need of change in this uniform climate
is the ciusc.
lVople from the hot Interior go down to
the mighty deep, camp by the sounding
seas, roll in the sand and tumble in the
breikcis. Inhabitants of the low plains
seek the mountains with their babbling
brook ami shady cauyons, mid spend their
time in fishing and hunting quail, deer,
rabbits or perhaps a heir. The latter,
however, very seldom foi most cunpcrs say
that they hivo not lost any bears, especially
gri77lies. Anything that will keep off the

At Laguiida. the lavoritc seaside resort
of this section, there arc, at present, more
than fivo hundred pcr-ons encamped on the
beach for miles Just as cloe to the waters
as the tide will allow. Some hive come a
distance of sccnty-tivc miles and havcar
raugtdlo stay for weeks. Others coming
a short distance, stay but a day or two.
Sonic cimp iu their covered wagons; some
have four upright poles covered with brush,
for tbilr abode; some tack cloth to the up
rights and draw cloth Hat across the top;
others have rcgulir lent vvitli flags and ex
tra tops; other, still, h ive bought lots at.d

This crowd ot pleasure seekers oi lieillh

tates quite an army of attend ints aud asis
tants, and for them it i- a harvtst.
Kegular tricks arc run lo the coist from
various points to carry campers to and fro.
In tho absence of grazing feed yards must
bo established and a plciKilul supply nfhay
and grain kept ou hind, and this must all
be hauled tvvcuty miles or more. Thchaul

cents per barrel gives employment
to some. The demand for groct nes, tobac

with which wreaths, flowers, etc., arc con
structed, watching the foam of the break
ers, as they ceaselessly roll in fiom the
deep, blue sea. A favorite authorbeguils
the time of many, while cards, checkers
and chess beguile another class. At night
dances,, amateur theatricals, Impromptu
concerts, extempore orations, etc.. arc in

who is better acquainted vvitli the Lard

rather incoherent brother who was much
exercised in a prayer meeting.
I tlropped into a temperance meeting in
an adjoining town when a class leader with
a very decided look of "I am holier than
thou" slid the nomination of Hlalnc and
Logan was an insult to temperance people,
.lust how, was a trifling, unimportant
query lie dNdaliied to answer. "Iain go
ingtovotcas Ipiav; I am a Republican and
am going to vote for St. John.'' If a a
Republican voter his voting ror St. John is
a sample of his praying, he had better "leff
offdar" ami let some one pray who is bet
ter acquainted with the methods or the
Lord in answering prayer.

clothed in the garments of common sciue,

commending that the rcsubmissionists be
given a place upon the Democratic ticket,

to make the nomination unanimous, and
the sceno was repeated. The governor re
plied in a speech at some length, defining
his position antl declaring in favor of a re
submission ofthe prohibitory amendment,
aud reviewing bnelly his administration.
The convention then proceeded to the
nomination of a candtdato for lieutenant

Topekv, Aug. 21. At 2 o'clock In the af
ternoon the convention re-assembled. Mr.
Overmyer moved that the report or the
committee as presented at tlie morning
meeting be now adopted. On this motion
Gen. Pierce roe to speak as one of that
committee, and aid that tbe committee
had met with the Democratic cnnrcrcnce
committee a. the Copsland houc. The
seven members of the rc-ubniUion com
mittee stood before the members of the
Democratic committee and told them they
would not surrender one principle of Re
publican! ini; butir they would put Col. C.
K. Holliday upon the ticket ns a candidate
for lieutenant govcr.ior, they would do it
selection of members of the legislature lav
orable to the resubmission of this matter,
but cannot aljide by its tacit endorsement
of the Democratic nominee. For that
reason I desire to make public the follow
ing appeal to the rcsumbtssion Republicans
First: The members of this convention
are Republicans. They feel aud ought to
feel a just pride in the glorious history of
their party ahUtory which has been made
glorious by steady, constant and unremit
ting warfare upon the Democratic party.
In whatever respect the Republican party
may be entitled to praise for its course ou
tbe great questions ofthe last twenty-five
years, the Democratic party is equally en
titled to condemnation. There is nothing
in its record in tho past or its present atti
tude to entice Republicans to its support.
It is tbe party of violence, ignorance- aud
vice, ana nas loug since demonstrated its I
utter incapacity to deal with liviug que-t- t
tions. An alliance with it, either in whole
or in part, can only result in strengthening j
anu encouraging tne uungry ucsire lor oi
fice which for so manvyears has been the
sole principle of the Democratic party.
Second: The question of resubmission
is one which belongs to the legislature ami
not to the governor or state officers. A
v ote upon the question cau only be ordered
by the state legislature. The Republican
party has shown itself in the past able to
deal with all questions of public interest
intelligently and successfully. Every mem
ber of this convention must know ttiatthc
Democrats arc looking with longing eyes to
a split in the Republican party. Not be
cause they arc solicitous lor the public
welfare, but because they are consumed
with u desire to capture the offices. They
bail with equal enthusiasm tbe defection
of St. John ami the prospective derccliou ot
tho resubmissionists. In any alliance which
wc ma v make with them they have ev ery-
thlngto gain and we, as Republicans, eve
ry thing to lose.
"Third: The Republicans of Kansas have
hailed with the greatest enthusiasm the
nomination or Blaine and Logan. The
Democrats, with their usual disregard ol
principle, which is but another name fr
blundering, have made themselves conspic
uously ridiculous before the Auierle in peo
ple by nominating as their conditlnie uu
obcura antl unknown individual, wlio-c
record, brief as it Is, stamps bint as flic
client) of the people; the weak aud willing
tool of monopoly in short, a tit represen
tative ottbe party which placed him in
nomination. An alliance between tbe Re
publicans of this convention and tbe Dem
ocrats would encourage the support of
Cleveland, antl taint us with some of the
disgraces of his candidacy before the Amer
Fourth: John A. Martin, the Republican
candidate for governor, is a min of the
highest ch iraetcr i citizen of Ivans m f.ir
more than :i quatterot a century, a Repub
lican always, a bravo soldier, ami uu lioiu-t
mm. Whatever dlffeieneu of opinion may
exist within tlie p iny on loci! questions,
all men know that John A. Martin will
make an able, holiest ami piirtullc execu
tive. He is entitled to the support of Kuu
sis Republicans, and should be elected b)
the same majority that Ivans is will give
Blaine ami Logan.
