The i convention is called to ;how the tii of ttie army of men reclaimed by the gold cure, and to demonstrate its et!ieacy. Among the delegates there will be present some of the bright est miiiils in America, and the results of the convention will be farreaching. Tne Keeley cure in a positive agent in the work of temperance reform, and it will yet be recognized as far more po tent man all other agencies combined. Wmex lioswell I. Flower was nomi nated for governor of New York by the democrats the convention adopted a platform containing a plank which reads, "We d-mounce the b.ilionaire congress." This year the platform of the national convention makes no reference to the proihgacy of the "bil lionaire" congress. It has a "tr.llion aire" elephant of its own, hence the continued pause. It may not be generally known but n :s a fact that Ottawa street, from j lVarl to Monroe, has been pfacttoally obstructed for two years, and the same I . yf be said of Tear!, east of Ottawa. In these days of bustle and activ.ty all the streets should be free from obstruc- tions and open to ail kin is of tralho.

Then the Hood aud Ruchanau homes were built. The original homes were exceedingly primitive and still axial to lay though substantial im provements have been added from time to time.

Our trip was through the nsjdad aca valley. We arrived at Vaeav.lie about 7 a. UV Our party was most roya.iy wel comed, liauis of two and four n s--had haati brought in from tweive miles out, from every point of the compass. Ttie hur.es and h ies were trimmed w.m tiower We were driven through j a number of the many elegant orchards for which the 'aca valley is noted, s. vera! hours were consumed by tne dr.ve. Although the weather was ex ceedingly hot, our party of seven or tignt hundred was tret! N paid.

BoatO of the improved truit lauds ell as high as 13000, to 3000 an acre. Tins valley is but twelve miles iu length and is the -eeiie . f earthquakes, evidences of the recent, as well ns of year? ago were apparent here. 'lh:s scene was of in tercut to our party perhaps more so than to thoe present at me time f tbe OCCuranee. Several business blocks and res. deuces were undergoing repairs. i)i 1 w Ttr"j;i Use esvUey, A drive througli this valley was some different from anything elbe ueen and enjoyed bet ore, Loads of great big luscious Spanish cherries were brought on board of the cars for tne enjoyment of our party, the fact is, there was o much to be enjoyed and so iittie timo to enjoy it in, that some sixty of our happy jour nalists forgot theniselvi s aud were left, to be gathered in on our return. We bade a pleasaut adieu to the hos pitable people of Vacaville with a promise of long remembrance and con tinued our journey to Bt. Helena, where a feaal wa- prepared for our party at their exposition tia.il. Tha t. Helena wotue 1 did all that could be done to make I'tir short stay as pleas ant as possible under the circumstances. '1 he hall was beautifully trimmed and tne decorations showed skill in art. St. Helena lays claim to the largest wine cellar in the world. A wonderful won derland, a wine tuunel over three fourths of a mile iong. made of cut stone and very handboine, containing over 3,000,000 gallons. M. Helena to Nnpa. From St. Helena we returned over the same road to Napa, where we were met by a t rass hand and thousands of peo ple ttiat had come great distances to welcome us. A great feast of every thing ttiat one could wish for was spread under these immense live oak trees. Napa lies fifty mile northt s-t 1 I -a-. Francisco. The valley is about twenty miles in length and has an average width of about fifteen miles lying in the eastern part of the Coast range. It is a region of hills and valleys, rich and productive and largely under cultivation, yielding bountifully with out -.negation. Pope niies valleys lies to the eastward, virtually forming j one valley with a combined length of about twenty-five miles. There are '. manv Other .-mall valleys a few miles in length, out proaucuve. Along me eastern line of Napa county lies Ker royessa valley, ebout twenty miles long and from one to throe miiee wide. Napa valley axtendl from the hay at the south to Mount St. Helena at the norm, a distance of about forty m.les, and varies in width from one to live miles. It is level, very rich in soil, and yields bountifully without irrita tion; all sorts of fruits end vegetables tlourish. Nnpit stiver, Napa river rises in the mountains to the north and traverses the entire length of the valley, being navigable from Napa City to the lay of San Francisco. Putah creek pa-s. s through Hie center of the Berry ease valley. There aie numerous other small streams throughout the country. There is an abundance of pure, whole some witer from irounta :i pr ng. no irrigation is required lor crops of any kind. There is something pecu liar in this irrigation business. In seme portions ot t Si t rnia it rains to irrigate, 111 other parts the dew i sulTi cient for ur.gatian, m other parts there is neither rain nor dew, yet everything) growa; fat othot parts noth ing grows without irrigation, but ae 000 as water touches even the desert sands everything n spono s and grows as if bv magic In other portions water irrigation would stop the growth of everything. California is certainly a wonderful stat. It has every climate that every other antff ems to bare and growa everything all 1 counti ies teem I to grow. While other -ndustnes have thrived in Napa, viticulture is said to have bo-;, from the earliest of osrerabadow : log importance. Nowhere StM can ' there be sren in California m so rnall a space suet, an immenM are of wine i grapes, and there :s a very large capi- t- in reeled m cellars snd dn 1 Many of the chotceet varieties 1 wine ' are produced m the fertile valleys and j on the sunny si .p,. of ttie Napa huls. j Viticulture is tiie one paramo ; -1 1 m I tereet in thai valley.
