Charms of San Francisco In the, Balmy
Month of March A Landlord G rowdy
Imposed Upon The. Oceans of Sympathy
lavished on a Penurious TraTSler.
ICopyrbjht, 1800, by Edgar W. Nye.
California has a rainy season which
takes the place of. winter, and has some
rain left for other purposes. Last win
ter it rained and did other things for five
months, but on the day that I burst upon
the coast like a long legged benison from
a clear sky, the sun came forth from his
long seclusion and lit up the grand old
main the ocean main, I mean, not
mine. Then the timid songster caroled
to his mate in low, passionate tones,
the gay orange poppies began to give
gorgeous coloring to the green billows of
field and prairie, and a thousand bright
and beautiful wild flowers garnished the
great American vineyard, orchard and
SHE WAS THE DRCMVZR.
You alwnyB hear a great deal of Cali
fornia before you see it, because the CaJi
fornian is so infatuated with his state
that he cheerfully gets up in the night to
brag about her, and yet, somehow, when
you see the real state, you are not disap
pointed. A great many people go to
California, but few return. This is be
cause the majority do so well they do
not care to return, and the balance do so
poorly that they cannot get home again.
San Francisco is the American Paris,
and seemed to me almost like getting
borne again. It is the abode of wealth
and refinement. The newspapers of San
Francisco have done much to bring
wealth to the coast. They have done
more than the railroads in that way. The
latter have brought a good deal of money
to California, of course, but have forgot
ten to divide after it got there.
Times are said to be dull in California
at the present time. I must hay that I
did not see any evidences of it, though
traveling over the state for some time
constantly. Certainly there seemed to
be very little suffering on Nob Hill, and
in fact times are ?xx1, 1 know, among
our set. ith the common people and
tradesmen of course I could not say posi
tively, but I am told that the suffering is
greatly exaggerated by enemies of the
I rode out on the bay clear into the
open Pacific in The Examiner's steam
launch. It is a beautiful and swift lit
tle craft which Mr. Hearst and his staff
use while recovering from brain fag.
When weary of the hurry and turmoil
of opinion molding, and the thought
ganglia begins to sag and the intellectual
joints to wabble, and thought itself be
comes a burden to the teeming brain,
they hitch up 'the yacht and, allowing
the trade wind to moauder through their
late whiskers, they smell the salt sea air
and the seal rocks and the wood violets,
and in an hour the world again looks in
viting; the odor of printers' ink and hot
machine oil and political records can
again be endured cheerfully and even
hilariously, and all is well. I wish that
the steam yacht could become more gen
eral among newspaper men, and hope to
see it adopted soon throughout the coun
try in place of the buck saw and other
The bay is too well known to my
leaders to need a description. At this
season of the year it is a glassy stretch
of quiet water at the feet of green and
velvety hills. Later on the grass gets
brown and so the effect is not so good.
As it is now, there are few flies upon the
bay. For the first time I have found a
desirable place to live in during March.
March everywhere else points to itself
with pardonable pride as the champion in
the bete noire business. It is the meanest
month on the calendar. It is a month
that is replete with suicide and the smell
of hot soap. The screaming winds carry
everywhere the odor of burning arctics
in the front yard and go searching with
sinister eye and stealthy tread for the
man who has in an unguarded moment
shed his winder yagers.
In California March has her tushes
drawn by the soft air from a gentle
oceanic current, the weather bureau
drops her a tender little isothermal line
or two, and the robins nest again, the
clouds roll by and the spring time has
came, gentle Annie.
Before I forget it I must allude here
to a little sensation which has not yet
been printed, and as the public will oc
casionally read a sensation, if truthful, I
beg leave to give it here. I will not use
names, because they are not necessary
A sad faced man, with a little vox hu
mana and the tremolo pulled out on his
voice, came to the desk of the hotel as
was registering and said in a low voice
that unless things were reformed there
he would go away. "I am not particu
lar," he said, "as a general thing, but
I've about decided that this has gone far
The landlord asked him what was the
trouble. Ue said that he had beard the
voice of a lady in the room of a drum
mer several times. The landlord inves
tigated it, pounded on the door, and
made a good deal of trouble, but found
that It was the lady's own room. Then,
lie tackled the sad man, and he said is
might be the lady's room, but that ii
they would search it they would also
find the drummer. Much excitement
was excited and money rapidly changed
hands. Curious faces of both sexes were
eeen protruding from various doors all
along down the hall. Finally a stern
man from St. Louis said this thing had
gone far enough and that he knew the
lady in question, and that while the
charge was substantially correct it ought
to be explained a little. The lady her
self was the drummer.
The man with the tremolo in his voice
then paid his bill out of the landlord's
money, took several deep draughts at the
bar at the landlord's expense and hurried
down to the depot to pay his excess bag
gagejrill, also with the landlord's money.
I believe that there are throe women act
ing as traveling men now, and this was
one of them.
The coast is beginning to feel an in
terest in the World's fair and will do its
share handsomely in the way of a dis
play. A general hope is expressed that
America will not sacrifice beauty and
worth to blow and advertising. Art be
comes no longer art when it is obscured
by the price mark, and literature suffers
when it becomes a reading notice. In a
certain city a few years ago a beautiful
monument was built to the memory of
the boys who lost their lives in the war
for the Union. The inscription read:
Erected In memory of the Brave Men who
! laid down their lives for the Union, as a :
mark of love and lasting esteem, by their
! fellow patriots and loving friends, at a :
: cost of $150,000. :
After a long, severe argument, how
ever, wiser counsels prevailed, and the
price was stricken out. The trans
Missouri country will enthusiastically
go in for a good showing, and will also
attend the fair prepared to figuratively
knock out the eye and gather in the
Etrusoan pelts of the great nation of
California, among other salient feat
ures, is the proud possessor of what is
called an average rainfall. Every child
even knows what it is now, what it was
in TO and as far back as history extends.
Fourteen to sixteen inches will do the
business in agricultural districts very
well, but this year it has been from 40 to
110 inches, according to the locality. The
Santa Clara valley has wetness enough
to last for four years, and yet only in
low parts of the country will crops be
delayed or injured by the great rainfalL
I asked a well known railroad man the
other day what he thought would be the
general effect on business if the govern
ment should take charge of the railroads
and telegraphs. He Baid he thought it
would be anything but soothing. "In
such an event," said he, "business would
be subverted to politics, I think. On
election day trains would be delayed and
voted in the doubtful states. Washouts
would give large party gains to the rul
ing powers. Telegrams would be affected
more or less in the rapidity of their
flight by their political tenor, and the
administration organ would be able to
get Sunday trains for its mammoth edi
tions, while the opposition paper would
run off the track or be held for orders.
We can get all the corruption we need.
I think, without extending its scoje or
possibilities. I would hate to see a Hes
ter street heeler rewarded bv being made
a government train dispatcher on my
road. lou can educate a postmaster
pretty well in four years, but vou take a
green politician and try to make a train
dispatcher or a division superintendent
out of him and you are liable to be bit
terly disappointed in him."
We had last week on the train a style of
passenger common to this free country,
He was a Russian by birth ami had made
some money in this country by a happy
accident in the price of rajrs or the sud
den advance in old clothes. Doubtless
in his old home across the ocean he had
slept at night on a heap of straw and
eaten the brunette hreaiof the plain ie
pie. Here he had made monev under
the fostering care of our free institu
tions and rode in a sleeping oar. Vul
garity had early marked him for its own,
and so, even with a silk hat 'and an over
coat with a fur collar on it, one could see
that he would be more at houie sleeping
in the loft of a livery stable with his
whiskers full of barley straw.
He found fault with everything, and
in half an hour had won his way to the
hearty and cordial hatred of everyone in
the car. He asked me what I paid for
my berth to San Francisco. 1 told him,
but I told him two dollars loss than the
price because he was well calculated to
call forth that kind of an answer. He
waa wild. He wanted t. jump off the
train and go back to the office to get his
two dollars bark. 1 then posted the other
passengers, and they came and pitied him
till he frothed at the mouth.
"WE ALL PITIED HIM."
People told him that the company
must have a prejudice against him for
something. Every one pitied him and
felt sorry for him. Finally we got to
working the same thing on him in other
directions. We would ask him what he
paid for his dinner and his other meals.
Then we would find out that he had been
robbed again. We would buy fruit of
the train boy, according to a previous
arrangement with him, at a price at least
60 per cent, below what he could get the
same goods for. Then we would go over
and feel sorry for him. and ask him if
he had ever been suspected of being a
n utilise or oi tK'lonfcinjj to some othei
denomination that was unpopular that
people picked on him no, until finally he
got so mad that large scalding tears of
vexation ran down over his red leard
