Cornelius Vanderbllt. Chauncey at Depew and
the others In Mr. Vanderbllt'? party, which has
been making a tour of the Pacino coast, arrived
ln this city yesterday. The party left New-York
twenty-three days ago. In a private car. The
trip was planned by Mr. Yonderbllt. and It was
ln his car that It was made. Since the private
car of Mr. Vanderbllt left the Orand Central
Station Its occupants )nve travelled 8.000 miles.
Ar. Vanderbllt and his friends visited twenty-five
State?, one Territory and the District of Colum?
bia. Nineteen of the twenty-two nights they
were away from home were passed ln the car.
Travel-stained and tired, but much pleased with
their trip, the party broke up yesterday.
Chauncey If. Depew. who has been having a
great deal of trouble with newspaper artist? In
the West and hairbreadth escapes from bandits,
was Just as serene as ever yesterday, desidie his
adventures. Mr. Depew said, laughingly, that he
didn't know where the story originated about the
bandits that planned to waylay the excursion
and hold Mr. Vanderbllt and bis friends for ran?
som, but added that It would have been pretty
hard t:> stop any train that ?he Vanderbllt party
was on except at scheduled stop?, as it waa run?
ning special, and at a high rate of speed. Various
pictures of Mr. Depew printed in the newspapers
of the Pacific coast gave him a stately repos?? of
feature, but made him look several years older
than Gladstone or Senator Morrill. He said, ln
speaking of these pictures: "When I went to make
an address ln San Francisco, after a local paper
had printed a portrait that made me resemble
a centenarian, some of those present said that
they recognized me from my picture printed ln
the paper. I told them that I was not nearly as
much nattered over the matter as I would have
been if It had been fifty years later."
Speaking of the trip, and Information drawn
from It, Mr. Depew. who always absorbes enough
data and facts on a trip of the kind to All a large
book, said, slowly: "I din not want to go at first,
owing to the fact that the State Convention
would meet within a few days, but Mr. Vander?
bllt had arranged to go at that time, and I saw
it was my only opportunity. I must say that
I am glad that I went. The trip has been a reve?
lation for me. I have always considered that I
was pretty well informed as to the conditions ln
my own country, but I confess that California
Startled me. I honesly believe that the people
of the East know less about California. Its char?
acteristics an.l attractions than they do of Eu?
rope. There is a country out there equal ln area
to the whole of Fr?n?-e, ami pupulat??;! with only
about one million and a half of people. Frano,.
supports ."0.000,000 of people, but it has not the
rich ?oil nor t.ie almost tropical climate of Cali?
fornia. I do not pay that California could sup?
port 30,000,000 people, aa France docs, because
the country Is not so level as France. There are
mountains In California that France has not,
but California could easily and comfortably sup?
port 10,000,00J peuple.
"California is pre-eminently an agricultural ?
district. There are few manufactures there. In
fact, there are none. In the East we think that
a man who curi operate a farm of 100. or 200, or
30<i acres without getting a mortgage on It, rais?
and educate his family without wiving any money,
ig doing remarkably well. We are farmers and
farmers' eons In the East, but we have no knowl?
edge of conditions out there. In the first plaie,
there are no large farms. I was surprised to find
hundreds upon hundreds of farms averaging
about thirty acres, m extent. These farms are
Just as pretty and carefully kept as a garden.
Lemons, oranges and olivee predominate. I was
Cold that on ? farm of thirty acres of this kind,
after paying all expenses, the net profit for culti?
vating one of these kinds of fruits was about
13.000 a year. It seemed to me to be almost Al
truria. The farmers there are not as they are
here. You find a man who owns thirty acres.
He is a country gentleman. He does not want
any more than he ha?. He works Just enough
to keep his little patch going. He get? the papers
and magazine?, and in that beautiful tropical cli?
mate, surrounded by gardens similar to his own,
he leads a quiet, uninterrupted life. He reads
and studies and does Just enough work to keep
himself in phyalcal condition.
"I was on the place of a man who had about
twenty acrea. He first went to California for his
health, and then became interested ln the country.
All along there you will find the home? of the
farmers to be dreams of comfort and almost
luxury. They are we'l furnished and comfortable,
and everything; to make lire pleasant is at hunJ
This man told me that from his twenty ai-res he
cleared from $3,000 to 14,000 a y?ar. Of ourse, he
said, he was nut a novice. II?? had made farming
S business. He went to Europe and stiiuW'd, and
he had read sdentine farming works. H?? f ught
the pests that Invaded his garden, and now he Is
In a position of c )mfort, almost luxury. To be
sure. It takes some time to build up a good farm,
and the price demanded makes It nei?ssary to
have quite a little capital at the start to go Into
the business, but I was told that for S?O.GOO one
could buy a good farm of thirty acres, ready to
boar. The fruits are prodigal ln their abundance
Lemoie grow the whole year round, and there is
not a month when some of the fields are not bear?
"The grape industry Is a grod one. too. The
owner? of vineyards in California have been
able to make a red or white wine and bottle It,
with a European label, and sell It cheaply
eaough to compete with Europe and still make
s fair profit. The reault is that they have paid
leee attention to the quality of culture and
more to quantity. Now they are beginning to
improve the quality, and the matter la being
studied closely. The trouble In the making of
champagne, and the inability to compete with
tbs champagne? that come from France, Is that

made Into wine, supplies a heady, utrong cham?
pagne that people do not care to drink. The
vineyard owner of California ?? beginning to
realize this and overcome It. He is building his
arbors on the hillside, and growing the grapes
where the soil Is rocky and not too rich. Then
again the grape-growers of California ar?? be?
ginning to see that their custom of maturing
wine ln the open air Is not the bent, and they
are having more patience and reverting to the
underground tunnels, such afl they have In
France. Hy digging deep In the rock and put?
ting the wine there, a uniform temperature Is
attained that cannot be secured abovegr.?und.
All these chanses are being made slowly but
effectually, and California wines will soon be, I
believe, as good as any that can be secured ln
the world."
Mr. Depew went on to explain that the trip
was one in which accurate Information was to be
secured mure easily than ln ordinary circum?
stances. ?? added: "The Southern Pacific Hail
road ran us 00 special time and so completely
was <iur schedule arranged that we were alone
hardly a moment. I think that every Board Ol
Trade and Chamber of Commerce sent us a
warm welcome. We were met at the station by
a delegation wherever we happened to stop, and
hustled Into conveyances. So we had at hand
men who were equipped with data and facts
which would be practically laaeeesaible to an
ordinary tourist. California is without a doubt
the most beautiful |?art of the world that I have
ever been ln, and I have b? en pretty much all
around. At this time ,f the year the ooantrjr is
all ln blossom and bloom. The winter there Is
about like our fall, and the summer;?, while hot,
are not unoomfortahl??, ?.wing to the dry atmos?
phere, and the nights ar?? alurayu OOOL It sel?
dom rains there, and the climate Is almost Ideal.
What surprises m ? is that every one with a little
?capital has not gone to California to live. San
Francisco Is a bustling city, and, while there Is
not the same air of hurry and stir of a-ti??n thai
there Is ln the East, where there are large manu?
facturing Interests, the people a.re wide aw.ike
and energetic.
"The silver question, of course, is a dominant
one out there yet. When I reached San Fran?
cisco I was invite 1 to make a' speech at the
Union League Club. I said to them: ? coots
from the Last, and I believe that I am among
men who fav..r th?? free coinage of silver, anJ
want to se.? legislation to that effect. NOW, I
am not a PresMeattal candidat??, and ? have
eome views and mean to express them, A man
who has views sad expresses th?-m, you will Bad
is n.-v?r a Presidential candidato I want to
say to you that this c lun'.ry can never hav?? free
coinage of Silver unless it Is by International
agreement. We hav?? grown so great ani BO
large that n-ithing can be dons la that Une in
this country without the co-operation of foreign
countries, owing to th?? position that we hold In
the congM-ss of nations, Tou may pass ? free
coinage bill through the Settata "li a trote of
States, but the ?ote In tb?? House of Representa?
tives, which is the fu?? representation of the
country, must bo taken as the exact criterion
<if th?? Nation's feelings. Th.u rota snowed thai
about three-fourths ??f the country wer?? for th.?
6?????? standard. STou can never elect a Congress
that will pass a fr-i-silvcr Sill. The country Is
too Important, and Its interests tuo vast, to
Jeopardize its prosperity by passing euch s bill.
Now, I thank you for your courtesy in listening
to me, an 1 I doubt not that you are against in??
ln this matti r'- Here I was broken ln up ?
by a great shout from almost half the pe pie
present, who cried. *We ar?? with you.' a promi?
nent politician anil a recent candidate fur G ??
ernor, who spoke Immediately after me, ??poke
right out for silver, and 1 thought that h?? was
met ?vlth faint support from the audles.ee.
"In this speech I referred to reciprocity, and
the policy wa? cheered. I spoke of the finan?
cial question, and the supporters of the gold
standard cheered, but when I ref rred to pro?
tection I was ln doubt whether I would be al?
lowed to finish my speech. The sudlence went
wild. I said to them: There Is an ?mbarrass
meTit of rlch?s In the Republican party for the
Preeiibntial nomination. We hav?? candidates
chasing the nomination, whll?? on the Other Bide
the onice seems to be seeking the man.' I bad
been warned that If I attempted to Introduce
the name of Morton, while I would be couite
tiusly received, I would have the same treat?
ment that Clarkson had when he went out
there and tried to advance lbs candidacy or
Senator Allison, and which was also accorded
to Joseph H. Manley, who tried to carry the
Read boom to the Pacific Coast, but. undis?
mayed, I went <>n: 'We have such sut?? fa?
vorites as Cullom, In Illinois,' not a sound;
"Quay, In Pennsylvania," still silence; 'and then
In a broader sense we hav?? Morton, in N'ew
York'; her? there was a Strong rlj pie of ap?
plause"; 'McKinley, in Ohio,' and that was wb-n
the meeting broke loose. The people out there
are for protection, and they seem to be bent
on having It.
"I find that the silver sentiment Is dying out
in the so-called silver States in the West, for
two reasons. In Colorado and California, where
silver was mln?d, the miners have turned from
the quest of sliver to hunting for gold, and they
have been remai k.ilily successful Silver, to pay
the miner, had to yield at le?ir?t $24 to the ton.
NOW, un.1er the new iyaiii.1?? ..f potash minina]
plan, gold thai nets |H to the ton can be mined
profitably. You can see where the chang?? comes
In, and how the is-ntiment in favor of silver is
dying out. In the other State?, not so much
mining States, the silver sentiment is still ram?
pant, but a change is gradually and .-?ur-ly
being worked. The busln?-ss men and s?ill?l
financial men of the different States are light?
ing the sentiment. Then, again, thin situation
faces the silver men: If they bolt and go for
free silver, all they can ?lo is to wreck th?? Re?
publican party. If they turn their State?, which
hav- always tuen Republic in Slat??.?, away from
the party, they will accomplish nothing und
will simply defeat the one principle which
means so much to them now?that Is, protec?
tion. There Is an almost fV re? desire all through
that country for protection. Tak?? the cattle
raisers ln Montana and Nebraska and the graz?
ing States. The Importation of cattle from
Mexico has seriously huit thern. The abolition
of the duty on wool has practically killed th.?
aheep Industry In the Northwest. With a little
protection the fruit growers in thai section Of
the country could practically command the mar?
ket? of the country, to the exclusion of th.?
dried fruits Imported from abroad. These facts
mak? them strong for protecti >n. They see how
u*>ele?? it (a |o try to effect the election of a
free-silver candidate. They see that It Is better
for them to have protection than to have free
silver, and there Is going to be no bolt. The
Western free-eilver States will stand by the
party and make the fight for protection, and
try for free silver afterward. If they trv for
It at all.
"I And a disposition among all the politicians
In the Weet to Bay that the best thing to do is
to go to St. Louis and talk the matter over and
then support the conditions Imposed by the Con?
vention. They eay that they are for this or that
man. but they are not bigoted. If they see that
they cannot nominate their man. they are ready
to accepl any good man that may be suggested
because they know that th* principi??? of the
party will be carried out. That will, I believe,
strengthen Morton In the Convention, because be
will be acceptable and is able and conservative.
That is about a summary of the political situa?
ti .?."
In referring to railroad matters, Mr. Depew said
that the party had travelled over every mile of
the Southern Pacific, Central Pacific and I'nlon
Pacific roads He added: "The radile roads are
in luit t physical condition than we believed
they were, '?ne thing that Is noticeable Is the
differ nee between the lines that have Govern?
ment liens and those which have not. Tak?? th?
Central Pacific. ?? stsrts at Ogden. It has a
straight single track, with sufflolent hidings to
allow for trafile, thr. ugh to San Jos<?. It has
no feeders and no terminals. The Southern
Pacific Joins In at San Joisf and k?ph on through
to Oakland, where it ha? a magnificent terminal,
with Its ferries and other fscllltlea Th?? feeders
running down Into th?? Santa Clara Valley, which
la the rlchesl valley In California, nnd th?? f.'eiler
running down Into the San JoSQUtB Valley, which Is
th-? lari;.'St vail? ? In the State, are owned by the
cth?r liti"?. Th.? Central Pacific has absolutely
nothing, and H would cost the United States Gov?
ernment lio.ooo.oio, maybe tr.o.ooo.ooo. to equip it
to make s strong competing line."
Mr. Depew refer'ed to the growth of the Mor?
mon church ln I'tah, nnd remarked that he
was surprised at the vitality manifested by it.
He ssid: "When we reached Salt Lake City, a
meeting of the Church was ln Be?Ion, and It
was sttended by 12.M0 people dally. Mr. Can?
non, wh?? is one of thr???? chief men In the
Church, told me that there were MO.O00 people
in the St.il??. and that at lessi tS0,(MM) of them
wer?? committed to Mormontsm. Th?? law hss
abolished polygamy, and the Church conform?
to the law. Th?? day l was there on?? <>f the
SposttM was deposed for a?.ptlng the nomina?
tion for an office without consulting the hier?
archy. That shows that, while the Church does
n?>: scramble for offices, p ?? ? dominan! fac?
tor In politica, and both partie? will b.? found
bidding for its favor. It I? now beyond GW
emmental Interference, a? h ha? s State of Its
own, snd the Mormon religion Is bound to ??
a potent factor in the State of Utah, and the
bordering States, for the reason that the Mor?
mons spread oui ami lap ovar the bouodarl? ;
Of their own State.
"Prot.-tlon In th? We?t." ?aid Mr DepSW, Ir.

policy a" be found It. "Us differ, tit from what

Mr Depew still denies that the Vanderbllt in

l'ari Hertz, the Illusionist, was talking of some of
the .o - . lents that sometimes spoil Hie art of the

a real knock-down blow. I was performing the
well-known trick of passing a marked coin Into the
centre of an uncut orango; at least, that's what
a good many people thought 1 was doing. 1 used
a silver dollar, and emphasized the trick by
fnsslng the coin Into the pocket of some boy whom
lia I entlceil on to the stai/e.
"I will openly confess that the boy had to be a
confederate, and that the naaiked dollar had its
fellow in one previously prepared by me. One night,
a* I was entering th?? theatre. I looked around for
a likely youth to al?? me In my double-deallaa, I
pl.'keU a boy, and promised to pass hlin In If he
woulii follow my directions.
" ? am a conjuror.' I said. ? want you to put
this dottar In your right-hand trousers pocket. I'll
get you a seat In the front row. When I ask for
somebody to come on the stage you must come.
Then I will ask you to produce the dollar."
"The boy promised verythlng. and, after making
arrangements for him at the door, I left him. When
1 w.i.i ready for the dollar trick I saw my young
confederata sluing open-mouthed In the front row
I had prevailed upon another member of the audi?
ence to lend me a dollar marktsi exactly as was
that I had given to the boy.
"I passed that borrowed dollar Into the orange
cut the fruit open, and out dropped the coin Then
I went on
" 'And now ladies and gentlemen, I will perform
a still more difficult feat. I have passed the do lar
Into un orange. Now I will ask som,, member of
the audience to step on the siago, and, without
going anywhere near him, I will pass the same dol?
lar marked as you have seen. Into his trousers
