Washington, April 24, 1886.
Since the great Washington Exposi
tion project has ben brought before
Congress, weekly meetings have been
held here, at which representative busi
ness men of this city and Baltimore
have discussed the subject. The Monu
mental City is not jealous of Washing
ton in having the World's fair, but on
the contrary feels that the Capital is
the most fitting place for it, and has
pledged her loyal support in making it
Those who will be instrumental in
materializing the project guarantee
that the proposed Exposition shall not
degenerate into a merely local scheme,
as the New Orleans Exposition is alleg
ed to have done. Being left in the
hands of the Governments of the na
tions represented, it is promised that it
shall be an entirely international affair.
It is held that the Exhibition will solve
the great mercantile questions of the
age, viz: a market for our over-produc
tion, by showing the manufactures of
the United States to the South Ameri
The record of the week in Congress
is almost too meagre to notice. Appro
priation bills in tbe House of Represen
tatives, and in the Senate the secret
sessions debate, the fisheries question
and Inter-State Commerce have con
sumed the time with no legislative re
The Forty-Ninth Congress is slowly
but surely drifting towards failure.
Four and a half months of the session
have already passed, and practically
nothing has been accomplished. The
outlook for the new tariff bill is defeat.
About twenty-five adverse votes from
the Democratic side of the House with
the Republican opposition that may be
counted upon, would do the deed,
while clear sighted students of the situ
ation predict that nearly forty Demo
crats will vote against it.
It is thought the debate will begin
about the first of May,, and that it will
run for several weeks unless the bill is
killed with amendments at the outset,
as will be attempted. In case of no
such accident, however, we will have
another long singe of"tariff for revenue
only," since there are over fifty names
already on the Speaker's list for
speeches on this bill.
The Congressional Railroad Strike
Committee, which is to investigate the
cause of the great strike, summoned
Messrs. Gould and Powderly to this
city. They will be examined on Tues
day, Wednesday, Thursday, and Fri
day next. Messrs. Powderly and Mc
Dowell representing the Knights of La
bor will first be heard, and then Jay
Gould and Hopkins, representing the
railroad company. The committee is
anxious to secure all the correspond
ence passing between these gentlemen
in relation to the strikes and they seem
disposed to make the investigation
thorough and impartial. On next Sun
day the committee will start for St.
Louis, and after taking such testimony
as is deemed material at that point
they expect to divide into sub-commit
tees, one proceeding to Atchison, Kan.,
and the other to Forth Worth, Texas.
At a notable gathering in this city of
the friends of the labor movement, at
which certain Senators and Representa
tives made sympathetic speeches, Con
gressman Tarsney, of Michigan, was
heard. He did not approve of this
Western bound committee to investi
gate the troubles, but called it a waste
of public money. Said he: '*So long
as the statute books are incumbered
with legislation for the few, strikes
will be the order of the day."
So much has been said about the
President's bride and his approaching
marriage in June that the people are
becoming used to it, and begin to be
lieve in the truth of the report. If he
should marry, Mr. Cleveland wifl be
the first President since Tyler to take a
wife during his Administration, and
there is an immense amount of gossip
and public interest in the event. Al
though Miss Folsoin has reached the
sober years of twenty-three, she will be
a youthful bride for the President, when
it is remembered that he is more than
twice as old as she. But what has
that to do with the case? Senator Beck
said once in a speech in the United
States Senate Chamber that the older a
man got, the younger ne wanted his
wife to be. He did not except the gray
haired, bald-headed Senators around
him, but said all men were alike in this
The Administration axe pursues the
even tenor of its way in the Depart
ments here. "One of these mornings,"
said a Treasusury clerk, you will walk
in this building and feel lost. Every
face will be strange to you. The Demo-
crats are howling because more chang
es are not made. Well, no one hears
of many changes,it is true, but they are
all made the same. Mr. Higgins is a
good provider for his party. He never
misses an opportunity to benefit it.
This week there have been a number of
reductions and discharges in the super
vising architect's office, and we all fear
our turn will come next."
From Southern California.
Much of the farming land and land
suitable for raising fruit, can be irrigat
ed, and on such land the crop sown, or
planted, succeeds nearly always with
out fail, since there are so few disturb
ing elements here that endanger it.
Having been here so short a time,
and even during that, busy with pre
parations for building, I can not at
present give a detailed account of farm
lands and farming operations in the vi
cinity of the city of San Diego, or San
Diego county, but am informed from
reliable sources, and judging from the
amount of farming implements sold
here, that already considerable graiD,
such as wheat and barley, and fruit,
grapes and vegetables of every descrip
tion, is grown here. Stock raising is
simply immense,a single ranch (farm),
that of Flood, consists of over one hun
dred thousand acres, and is well stock
ed. There are many others of less de
mensions. A number of these farms
are now cut up and sold to small pur
chasers, in quantities to suit, from one
acre upwards, at prices, as advertised,
from five to one hundred dollars and
even more per acre, according to loca
tion and improvements. As San Diego
county is something like one hundred
by three hundred miles large, there is
yet room for many, but the emigration
from, all the other States, east, north
and soutn has been very great the past
winter and still continues, the choicest
lands are being taken up and the price
As to the city of San Diego, I can On
ly say that itis? growing rapidly. It
San Diego, April 11th, 1886.
Editor Review:Having promised a
number of our friends to let them hear
from us through the columns of the
Review, I herewith send you the first
letter, just four weeks after our arrival
here, and after having permanently set
tled, by renting a house,purchasing the
necessary articles for housekeeping and
having commenced putting up a build
ing of our own, which we expect to fin
ish in from two to three months. I am
contemplating to build a double store
of brick, 50x70, the second floor divid
ed into fourteen dwelling and office
rooms. From these preparations you
will see that we have decided to stay.
We made the trip frem New Ulm to
San Diego, Cal., in about six days, hav
ing lost nearly a day's time on the way
on account of the heavy train, crowded
by passengers taking advantage of the
Our daughter Clara commenced to
improve as soon as a warmer climate
was reached, and has now recovered so
far that she assists in doing light house
work, and is able to take a walk of a
mile. The rest of U8 are enjo\ing ex
cellent health, and all are so far well
pleased with our new home. With the
exception of about two days with show
ers of rain, theie has been very little
change in the weather for the past
month, the thermometer varying but
little below 60 in the morning and not
above 8o at noon.
The regular and pleasant climate of
San Diego is its greatest but not the on
ly attraction. Its location on the beau,
tiful, safe and tranquil bay of San
Diego, with a minimum depth of chan
nel of twenty-three feet at low tide, and
the lomantic scenery back of it gives
it a commercial \alue as well, as it
lends enchantment to the lover of the
beauties of nature, and gives health
and comfort to the invalid and those
whose constitution is not strong enough
to endure a cold and varying climate.
If climate and natural beauty were
all that southern California possesses,
besides its .bundance of fresh semi
tropical hints, its advantages could on
ly be enjo\ ed by the rich, who could
come here and spend money, without
being obliged to earn it here. But
bountiful nature in her generosity, has
endowed this part of the United States
also with much of the substantial. Be
sides high mountains full of valuable
minerals, there are many valleys hav
ing as rich a soil,in which almost any
thing from a turnip and potato, to im
mense fields of grain and all the semi
tropical fruits can be successfully rais
ed, as can be found anywhere in the
world. In ordinary seasons most field
crops and fruit trees, as well as grapes,
do well without irrigation, after the
trees are once started.
NEW ULM, BROWN COUNTY, MINN., WEDNESDAY, APRIL 28 1886. WHOLE NUMBER 433
contains now some over seven thous
and inhabitants, an increase of nearly
three thousand within a year. Proper
ty has gone up rapidly. Lots in the
business part of the city have advanced
from 50 to 100 per cent in the last four
months, selling now from $50 to $250
per front foot residence lots from $50
to $3,000 per lot of 50 by 100 feet.
Building material is but little, if any
higher than at New Ulm. Wages of
carpenters and brick layers from $2.50
to$3.50per day, day laborers, $200
board at private houses $6.00 per week
to from $2.00 to $4,00 per day at best
hotelscan be had cheaper though by
renting rooms and boarding at restaur
ants or batching. Meat, provisions
and groceries, about the same as in
New Ulm Business as well as labor
of every class seems to be well repre
sented but still they come,build, go into
business, go to work and live get along
and are satisfied, with the exception of
a few professional grumblers met with
everywhere. Of professional men there
is a good supply, still there is room on
top of the ladder. Those who have
not the ability or pluck to get there had
better look for other pastures, unless
they just come to enjoy a pleasant win
ter or for the benefit of their health,
and some cash in their pockets. Any
one having the means to come and stay
here a while, whether In winter or sum
mer, may be assured of enjoying the
trip and their stay here, so will the one
who has money, say from five thous
and dollars upward, run no great risk
to come and invest it in farming, busi
ness,or real estate but to the man with
little or no money I would say: "Go
slow on California, especially if you
have a family and a little property
east." The low rates nave ..brought
many of that class in lately and it is
not always easy to rind paying gwork.
Farm hands, able and willing, to work,
seem to be in demand most of^the time
at good wages. A very large* emigra
tion is expected here next winter and
many large buildings are going up and
will be ready to accommodate all who
may come to stay a while or perma
nently. There are at present over fifty
new buildings in course of erection in
San Diego,and many more contemplat
Having now wnttcn'quite *a lengthv
letter to begin with, I will add no more
for the present. Please continue send
ing the REVIEW.

describing San Diego county can have
