Sax Fkancisco, August 20, 1871
Enough has been gathered during the
past ten days for a column or two of
an average interest. Last Saturday
1 went across the bay to " call " on
the extensive acquaintance made there.
and incidentally 'caught the most se
vere cold I ever remember having, and
have been doctoring ever since. I dis
posed of the calling, however, in a
lump the men all being on the street
at a primary. And here a word about
how one from Arizona is received any
where outside of the Territory. Usu
ally or with most rare exceptions, the
first said is some sort of question or
allusion in reference to your " hair,
This sort of thing generally follows
every one into Arizona, but it is the
first thing met when coming out, and
has been intensified by the newspaper
and other accounts from there durin.
the past six months. Everybody de
pends greatly on the telegraph nowa
Personally, there is little of interest
to Arizona. I believe there were sev
eral people to go by to-day's steamer
Judge Reavis and Captain Fleason,
the name of the latter being mention
ed bsfore in connection with the Tiger
and other matters in Bradshaw. The
Captain, I am credibly informed, is a
very plucky and derserving person,
and were Bill Lent's purse at his com
mand, he would scatter it broadcast
in Bradshaw he is so on nettles over
the subject. But Lent's buckskin is
more carefully managed than ever
before, though I believe from what
has been seen and untold, he is desirous
of prospecting his Tiger interest in a
handsome manner. Captain Grant
returned south by last steamer, having
arranged with Lent to carry out things
needed to that end. His Tiger case
recalls Lent's experience with the
Rising Star claim in south Idaho.
That cropping and subsequent work
was not much unlike the Tiger in
looks, though the Tiger quartz is
really of a different character, and
there is also more of it. There, how
ever, JLent erected great reduction
works, which lie cold, and I believe he
failed to sell to that "English Com
pany. JNow, 1 inter, ho is deter
mined not to be m a hurry about the
mill, but sell to that " English Com
pany " beforehand, and to do so, wants
to handle the Tiger stock generally.
He has two chances, you see ; ono to
sell betore great expenditure, and the
prospect of the ledge developing
largely so he can afford to keep it It
is almost pitiful to see how weak and
helpless individuals with crude " feet"
are in an old shrewed market of this
kind ; nothing less than an equal
divide of interests is considered for a
moment to begin with, and after you
are once partially committed, it rarely
happens that your peanut stand is not
more than upset with so thin a popu
lation on the whole coast; and a rail
road through so great extent of min
eral country, the weaker sisters, as
Idaho and Arizona on either side,
must bide their time. There is every
where little if any doubt expressed as
to the mineral wealth of Arizona, but
this accursed greeting of "How'
your scalp? " will for the time prevail
over that or any allusion to the condi
tion ot your "feet.
The Central Pacific Railroad having
swallowed all the smaller try oi iron
thoroughfares hereaways, the meal
can be digested at leisure, and will be

about anti-subsidy takes a reaction

the Sau Joaquin valley, whose arid.
regions nave no business to pay

reason, there is now no opposition nor

Milton S. Latham headed a list of
men of money to connect the Yallejo
route via bouthern Idaho with the
Union Pacific at Ogden, but such a
detour suggested at once to anyone
conversant with the proposed unin

move was but a grand bluff game to
sell out the "short route to Sacra

ban Francisco will hereaiter as

that score ot late years. jNoav

three short weeks sometimes constitute
long enough period to reverse all
such opinions, and there is many a lip
twixt the cup and the slip anyhow.
Haight, holding the Governorship four
years, has much to answer for, of
course, though there has been many a
worse ruler than-he ; while Booth, his
competitor, comes on the stage with
clean skirts, a clearer and better intel
lect, and an unexceptional speaker and
person generally. Haight has the
hearty contempt of a large breadth of
the rank and file of his party, for his
having been once as black as any of
us, besid'es his Puritanical ways.
Moreover, the general administration
of the State government lias not come
up to the promises of the party in
power ; they have not in various in
stances contented themselves with the
mere pie awaiting their hungrv ac
cession, but have bitten into the plate

don t know but it would be best at
least as well were the stumping svs
tern to give way entirely to the offices
ot the telegraph and newspaper. Let
candidates write out their platforms
to begin with, and then confine their
discussions to print. Thev could never
complain ot being falsely reported,
and people would be thereb- saved
from catching cold, and tramped on

sory education and voting then be

cal structure, and the country will go
along as noiselessly and successfully
as need be.
Last night I heard Frank Pixley
tell the story ot his Trip to Europe.
including his personal view of Paris
under the different excitements and
sieges up to last month. He paid
Gambetta a deserved compliment, and
think only tardy iiistice tc that
much berated political faction the
Commune. The heroism displayod by
that red-hot people women and all
was certainly deserving of more than
a sneer. Pixley truly says that the
Commune is sadly at a disadvantage
on the score of defense having been
nearly all massacred in their tracks
as they fought from street to street, and
have no press in Europe to speak for
them; but he thinks no grand mo
narchical lie Avili neutralize the alarm
ing effects to Kings over the great
waters. Pixley speaks from personal
observation of the good rule in Paris
under the Beds before the Theirs'
party bombardment; that "nother
version of the vandalism is due the
world, and will soon be forthcoming.
The Commune (or people) theory.
modified, is not confined to Paris or
France, but is asserting itself every
where among civilized and what are
ailed enlightened nations. The more
steady English and German rulers
will guide their Commune into better
channels, and the United States must
not let the leadership of her Commune
out to the demagogues of the country,
as the labor leagues so far illustrate.
According to Pixley, and he is no one-
horse thinker, Arizona will do Avell if
she can change off John Apache for
Johnny Crapaud especially as the
Territorv is given to rainfalls of frogs.
Pixley's descriptions were graphic and
thrilling, and worthy ot a more ex
tensive report than average. Mrs.
Cady Stanton has come and gone, and
left a better impression on " the wo
man queston," than all others of her
style combined. Theatrical amuse

managers seem to be most successful
