A WEARY TRAVELER
Who Does Not Like the Inter-
state Commerce Law.
But He Gets There Just the
He Revenges Himself on a Brutal
And is now Beady to Encounter Other
Perils on the Rail While Bound
"When the Republican convention
concluded its labors the reporters were
very tired, but they met as usual on
Saturday night to exchange reminis
cences at their favorite place. There
was a cow-boy like gentleman present
who said that he had just arrived from
Arizona and was on his way to Seattle.
He was very mucb discouraged at the
working of the interstate commerce bill
which had prevented him from getting
passes to travel first class, as in the days
of yore, on the strength ot having held
■down a job as reporter on one of Ari
zona's cosmopolitan journals. He said
he had no talent for riding on brake
beams, and walking on the track he con
sidered very tiresome, although he had
such long legs. Hi a trip to Los Angeles
he believed to have been one of the most
wearisome efforts oi his life. An invita
tion to smoke a pipe and take a pull at
the jug, brought the young man out.
"You see," said he, "I had been in
■the U. S. cavalry, and being a good
. rider became a cow-puncher after my
discharge. But newspapering is my
ambition, so I let steers alone and got a
job on the Tucson "Nebula." My
efforts were not appreciated and pretty
soon I got fired. I had two dollars and
an India rubber overcoat. I tried hard
to get a pass over the road, but 1 got
left, as usual. So I started afoot to
wards Yuma. I walked sixty miles
without seeing anybody but a dead man
who had died from want of water. I
don't mean to say that he had been
without liquid refreshments, because he
had a bottle that had contained whisky,
lying beside him. The place where I
landed is named Casa Grande. The
overland express passes there at night
nnd I screwed up my courage to jump
the blind baggage when it stopped. I
got to Maricopa before I was discovered
and —bounced. The following morning I
just climbed on a freight train that was
ready to pull out. As I have said I
can't rest easy on a brake beam, so I sat
down on a broken wheel, lying on a flat
car. The train left, and I was in hopes
of reaching Gila Bend without much
trouble, when sixteen miles out from
Maricopa a hot box was discovered and
bo was 1. Tlie breaky who saw me of
fered to let me go ahead provided I put
up some "stuff," that is one dollar, but
I needed my dollar so bad that I could
not give it up. He had a big club
which he used to turn the brake wheels
with, and he threatened to break
my head with it unless I
"came up" or left the car. I left, of
course. T had sixteen miles before me,
and not a drop of water, although there
were plenty of prickly pears to be had.
But my good fortune was to begin soon.
I had pasted several Chinese section
hands, when a man called at me who
turned out to be an old friend. He was
the section boss. After taking me to
his home to dinner and treating me in a
royal manner, he pumped me out on his
handcar to the end of the section, and
by great luck we arrived there just as
the Gila Bend section boss was ready to
begin his return journey. This old fel
low was just as cordial as tbe other,
and we went down the incline at a
great rate. I was made welcome at the
section house where old Pat, who was a
bachelor, fixed up a grand supper in
regular bachelor style. He and I went
over to the saloon, nnd there another
surprise was in store for me. The man
who kept that place was a friend of
mine, too, and as he had business some
where else, he wanted a barkeeper for a
couple of weeks. He hud tried one who
got drunk tbe first day and spent all the
earnings of the bar at poker. So he of
fered me the job, and, although 1 am a
good hand at drinking cocktails and
knew nothing about the manner of their
concoction, I had the gall to take it.
The parting injunction of my boss was
that whisky was good enough for any
one, and if I became tired of mixing
cocktails, just to tell tlie epicurean sons
of-guns so. He also snowed me a
couple of revolvers for emergencies, im
plored me not to 'knock down' too
much aHd told nic where to hide the
'boodle' at night.
"Well, the next morning, who should
come in, with several others, but that
breaky who had bounced me off his
train. He didn't recognize me, because
I was wearing a white shirt and had the
boss' Alaska diamond sticking into it.
That splendid jewel was about as large
as a buli's-eye lantern glass, and gor
geous—oh, my! The boys played sev- i
eral games of cards for the drinks, and I
noticed that my breaky never paid when
he had lost, but kept saying: 'Charge
it.' As the game broke up, the fellow
coolly told me that this was on him,
and he wanted to leave. But I stopped
him, and explained to him
that he couldn't get away without
pungling. So he took a square
look at me and he says : ' Why, you're
that there fellow I kicked off that there
train?' ' And, yes,' says I ' you're that
there fellow I am agoing to kick out of
this here saloon, unless you pay right
now!' He thought that he could bluff
me, but he couldn't. Jim, he said, gave
him credit when he wanted it and I
ought to do it too. I merely pulled out
one of those two big revolvers and in
formed breaky that when Jim was run
ning the shebang he could do as he
liked, but when I was I'd have my own
way or ' bust.' So he wilted and paid
the cash. Although hewowed he'd never
come.into the house again, he called half
an hour later, said I was a good boy,
blooded, etc., and promised thereafter to
let me ride with him for nothing."
"There were some Maricopa and Pima
Indians there, and they tried all sorts
of tricks to get whisky. Of course, I
would not supply them with it, but they
managed to get "some of my liquor all
the same. The day I had made up my
mind to vamoose from Gila Bend, two
young tramps wanted fifty cents worth of
whisky in a big bottle. Then they filled
it up with water and left. Pretty soon
there was a row in front of the place and
running out I saw several bucks chasing
the boys. A freight was just leaving,
and the way those boys vanished under

ance. They had given the boys $1 lor
whisky and had only received about
one-half its value in weak grog."
"I hid myself that night in an empty
coal car and arrived at Yuma, blacker
than a negro, but as I had money I
didn't mind that. I managed to reach
Los Angeles by insiduous methods, and
am pretty nearly ready to proceed on
my travels once more. I am not broke
yet, gentlemen all, and I invite you to
join me in a stirrup cup." The boys
stirrup-cupped with alacrity and wished
the tall stranger a happy trip toward the
metropolis of the Puget, where at the
rate he has been progressing, he will
reach some time near Christmas.
THE ORPHANS' FAIR.
A Strong Appeal to the Public for Its
The time has again arrived when the
public are called upon to patronize the
orphans' fair, which is to be held at
the new Armory hall (opposite post
office) from October 13th to 18th, in
clusive. That this fair will be a success
is an absolute necessity. Almost 35
years ago Sister Scholastica in company
with five other Sisters landed at Sah
Pedro and came to this city, to estab
lish a school which was formerly and
familiary known as the "Sisters school,"
located upon the corner of Alameda and
Macy streets. Orphans of all creeds
and nationalities were there received,
supported and educated. No distinction
being made between them and the
children that were the sisters, regular
As years passed by the number of the
orphans gradually increased until now
there are in the Sisters asylum 250
orphans; more being denied admission
on account of the lack of proper facilities
and the already overcrowded condition
of the present asylum.
The buildings now used for the or
phanage are in exceedingly poor con
dition, and the safety of the inmates
imperatively demands healthier, safer
and more commodious quarters. The
Sisters realizing the necessity for a
change and for the improvement of the
conditions then and even now existing,
about a year ago commenced the erec
tion of a new asylum on Boyle Heights,
to cost when completed $125,000.
The construction has so far progressed
that the building is now being roofed.
It was confidently expected that while
the new asylum was being built the old
place could be sold, and sufficient be
realized from its sale as to tide the Sis
ters over any financial embarrassment.
Some time ago the old asyulm property
was bonded for a considerable sum, but
the sale was not consummated, and now
the Sisters are owing (besides the long
existing debt incurred in the Alameda
street asylum) a new and large debt
contracted in erecting the new building
on Boyle Heights. Hence the urgent
necessity of making the coming fair a
The principal revenue derived by the
Sisters for the support of the orphans is
such as comes to them as the result of
the yearly fairs held for the benefit of
the orphans. Tlie coining fair is not
only expected to furnish the Sisters the
usual amount realized by other fairs,
but also an additional sum sufficiently
large as to enable them to proceed with
the building of the orphanage on Boyle
Hundreds, yea, thousands, in this
city, can bear witness to the good work
performed in our midst by the Sisters of
Charity. And ie is to be hoped that
the public will generously respond and
make the coming fair that success that
the Sisters and the orphans under their
charge so well deserve.
