Tacoma, VV. T., I-larch V stepping
on board a train of vestibule cars that
would be bard to surpass in elegance,
convenience, luxury and splendor, at
Ogdeo, Utah, we retire for the night and
wake up in the morning refreshed after a
good sound sleep, h indreds of miles in
advance on our journey, feeling that dis
tance has been practically annihilated by
the railroad. With travel and luxury
thus combined there is no hardship in
reaching a given point, and, in the means
time, enjoying the comforts and con
veniences of home, wiiile being whirled
across the continent U almost lightning
speed in these palatial cars. The second
morning after leaving Ogden we were
awakened on the ferry boat while cross
ing the Sacramento river at Benicia.
This is January the 8 h, and we are now
in California Look ng out of tbe car
window as we are b ing rapidly whirled
along, we discover that winter s snowy
mantel of the eveninr before has been
left behind and the v.-rehire of spring now
clothes tbe bills and valleys. In an al
most incredibly short time we bave
reached Oakland, the terminus of our
trans-centinental railway, where the
lilies, roses, camell as and violets are
blooming unsheltertd and the ground
never fretzmi, and been ferried across the
bay to San Francisco and tlnd ourselves
cosily ensconced iu its Palace hotel, the
finest and largest iu the world. The bay
of San Francisco ext ends in a northerly
and southerly direction about sixty-five
miles with an average width of about
eight miles, giving it a shore line of about
three hundred miles. The hilly penin
sular upon which Sat Francisco is located
is about four and ono half miles in width,
from bay to acean, by six and one-half
miles in length. San Francisco presents
a great commingling of nationalities with
a population of over U50.000 souls, and
is one of the most cosmopolitan cities of
the world. Its educational facilities are
unsurpassed; it has nineteen colleges.
academies and art schools. Among its
other features mav 1 e mentioned its one
hundred and twenty seven churches; its
tbirty-Qve banks; its mint, where a bil
lion of money his bi en coined; its thirty
nine hospitals; its immense iron works;
its thirty-libraries and reading rooms; its
fifty principal hotels; its Chinese uuar
tern, and its one hut dred and sixty-eight
newspapers. It is covered with cable
roads which are the marvel of the day,
running up and down its steepest hill
sides and rounding the sharpest street
curves whi.e go:ng with frightful
velocity. The cabl'j roads have made it
possible to extend the city to the end of
the iieninsular Ihrnielinut its entire
length and breadth. Ilisa city of great
wealth and commercal importance; ships
and sailing vessels from all parts of the
world whitening i s harbor with their
sails, and its water front may te said
to he a fort of mast i. It would, indeed.
be a difficult matter to estimate tbe f u
Hire limits of its commercial points, for
even now tbe value of its imports is sec
ond in Ute United S ates, being exceeded
by New York only It will continue to
be tbe great railroad center of the Pacific
coast, and, in time.v ill be one of the few
great cities of the world. The. least at
traction, indeed the repulsive part of it
to me. at least, is the decayed buildings
and offensive, narrow alleys, which are
swarming with filthy hordes of "the pig
tailed natives of the flowery kingdom."
It had hut little curiosity for studying the
celestial part of the place with its joss
houses, theatrvs acd suhtcranean pas
suges. The Chinese are quite an element
in the population, and one of its annoy
ing, perplexing and Jisturbing factors. I
am a firm believer in an advancing,
higher and belter civilization of the hu
man race, but also firmly helieve that it
will not be in Sain Jones' time when
these heathens adop'. either the American
or European plan.
Among the many attractions in the
environs of San Fra'icisco is the Golden
Gale Park, one of the finest in the cnuns
try, containing 1,0 K acres beautifully
lain out in broad avenues, elegant drives.
lovely walks and pre menades, gorgeously
blooming flower gardens, and tbe indis-
pensihle, never-ending race track. From
tbe highest point in the park may be had
a magnificent view of a portion of tbe
bay and city, the en ranee of the Gelden
Gate and tbe ocean. About tbe bay on
all sides, the suburb) of the city contain
many elegant private parks and costly
residences, the sul urban homes of its
wealthy citizens, surrounded by flower
gardens that are in perpetual bloom 365
days in tbe year .
Just outside the O dden Gate at a rocky
point on the oceai shore is tbe Cliff
house, the place of fill others most visited
by tourists and natives. Here stretching
away to the watery western horizon is
the grand old ocean that "was infinity of
ages 'ere we breathe 1 existence." Loom
ing up from the ocean a few, hundred
feet from the veranda of the Cliff bouse,
are the seal rocks covered with hundreds
of sea lines and seal crawling and swing
ling in strange commotion uttering their
hoarse, dismal crien as they move from
place to place on the brown, repulsive
rocks, but resting c uietly, if undisturbed
while basking in the genial sunshine.
Directly back of lie Clill house, at a
higher attitude on this point, is the
quaint house and beautiful grounds of tbe
venerable Adolph Sutro. I ma gentleman
has been extremely lavish in his expendi
ture of time and money in embellishing
these heights, making them so lovely and
picturesque. Here may be found almost
every variety of shrub, plant and flowei,
and tbe most beautiful evergreens line
tbe fragrant walks The entire grounds
are ornamented with a diversity of costly
statuary, in tbe selection of which he
must been guided, in his ideal concep
tions, by the insp rations that are em
bodied in the Venus and the Apollo.
These grounds are t.htown open to visit
ors and must be se-n to be appreciated
We spent a very pr ifltable. pleasant and
tnjoyable day at th ise heights and on the
verandah of tbe CiiU bouse.
The old missions of California.some of
which must haye been very wealthy, foun
ded by the Jesuit ft.thers during the latter
part of tbe Eighteenth century, are points
of preat interest to tbe tourist ana irav

Mission Dolores a: San Francisco is the
ancient, oicluresqus, white front churcn
with its tile roof atd the old bells which
once called Lo, the poor red man, to his
dailv mass. Then haa been a "great
hoom" on the Pac fie coast, and the in
fection still taints the air of San Francis
co. During "the boom" the upward
tendency in real estate, in prospective
huainess. and suburban residence prop
ertv was ao marked as to astonish even
the boomers thems jl ves . Some lost their
all. and others made princely fortunes in
wild speculation during tbe excitement.

these disinterested men of toughened
sensibilities, will seemingly wear them
selves out driving the teuderfoot about

good fortune in having made their ac

gelist, Mr. Moody, while in San Francis
co, said: "This world is a wreck, bound
to sink. The best that can be done is to
get off as many as possible of tbe pas
sengers and crews and let her go." The
great preacher need have no fears at least
for the Pacific coast, as her real estate
men will have everything gathered off
that will be worth the saving before the
wreck makes its final plunge. The mys
tery of death is ever before us. Tbe
wisdom of tbe Infinite is beyond our
conception and the wreck will probably
go on, but tbe real estate man, although his
last hours may be doubl y sad, will be loth to
leave when "heaven s last thunder shakes

Saturday evening as Mr. Perry Merry-
man, of Moline, was driving home from
Rock Island accompanied by his brother,
Dr. Geo. Merry man, his horses became
frightened near the Sechler carriage
works and started on a mad run, and be
fore they could be controlled, ran into a
wagon in which a Mr. Olson, of South
Moline, and his fourteen year old son
were riding. Both vehicles were over
turned, and Dr. Merryman suffered a dis
located rib, while Mr. Perry Merryman'a
head was badly bruised. Mr. Olson's
boy received a number of bruises, but
Saturday evening Bert Cunningham,
the ball player, Robert Abernatby. Bert
Bausth and Dr. Noreen, all of Moline,
went out to take a sail on the river and
when some distance above the town the
boat capsized and the four occupants
were thrown into the water. Cunniug-
ham swam to the shore, a distance of 150
yards, and hurrying to a farm house, got
out a salvage corps and started back to
rescue his companions, but they bad all

had the pleasure of listening to a delight

the great author read by a master reader,
A choice audience gathered with tbe
high school pupils and were well repaid.
The reading of "Othello" was given with
but little attempt at gesture, the charac
ters speaking through voice and facial
expression. Each character retained
throughout the entire pUy its expression
offace and voice in a matter so distinct
that the audience could, without difficul
ty, follow the reader from character to
character without much interpolated ex
planation. The running comments were
well chosen and added much to the ren
dition. Mr. Williams is a reader of
great merit, and the accuracy of his mem
ory is something remarkable.
