Olla-Podncia We have !*eu taking account of vSk k iii wime'if, a*«<l placing a valu ation it; money up n our mental and j<bv»H il j rop«-rtic», ati<i we are »'ton isheil at the estimate of our value. The i'lea occurred to us in this way. W. were riditg .lowu Sutter street on the dummy—tare five cents—and right her»- we throw in an interject ion a I thought. Sutter street, California street and Clay street cable railroads arn our individual property. They are built to enable us to c«>uie aud go from our residence to o.r business otTice; they cost * million of dollarf, and all we have to do is to hand the collector who comes to us and a-*ks us f<*r it— five cents; ten cents a day thirty dollars a year. No tare, no anxiety, no r Hpor nihility; a privilege to grum ble, ar.d all f r thirty dollars and they never est us a cent. So with the Pacific Railroads We go to the East, to Arizona, north toward Oregon, acr< <s to Oakland, have spl ndid sleeping cars, smoking apartment*, could not use them more freely nor tii re frequently if we owned them, and all we have to <!• is to nay our fare, and the accommodation is at our corn man 1. Governor Stanford is not half s•> much at his ea*e about his business a-< we are. If the ca» runs over a cow or the company a politician, it causes no anxiety. We are not worried aliout eminent domain—aro not compelled to elect legislators, and then purchase them. We do not have to keep a lobby. We do not have any anxiety a »out Tom Scott; wo have no parasites to cling to us; no flatterers to lawn around and wony us; no band of mercenaries to hire. We are not vexed lest the Su premo Court shall determine the value of a year's subscription to the Argo naut, nor do we anticipate any immedi- : ate regulation of the rate at which the ! news boys shall sell the paj>er. The railroad cost $100,000,000, and wo re- ! gurJ it as our private estate, and look upon tioveruor Stanford as our trustee i for its management. But we were rid ing down Sutter street on the dummy, J and at the window of his elegant house stoo 1 William S. O'Btien, a prisoner 1 within his gilded bars to ill-health, and ;.s he saw us enjoying our five ceut ! ride upon uuu oi Caseboit's jolting dummies, we know lie would have wil- ' lingiy exchanged his millions for our health, and we at once mentally credit ed ourself in the book of life—we mean in the ledger entry of life's book-keep- j ing with what we think O'Brien is | worth, say $15,000,000. And then we j thought of our friend Latham and we sai i he is worth $3,000,000; but he, too, is »i<k, and wo would not swap with him. So we made another entry—s•!,- 000,000. Then there is John Parrott, -;iy worth about $.>,000,000, and he is not les* thau 1"> years older than ws are, and as we would not sell 15 year, of our life for all that John l'arrott is worth, we just carry to our credit another $5,000,000. We thought ot M ichael IJecse and Nicholas I-uning,and j how they sweat their coin, and how ! the multiplication table luns through j tbeii heatls of a night, and of how they cauuot sleip, thinking of the $10,000,- 000 they owu between them, and we remembered that wo loved books and they do not. that wo are fond of travel- | ing in Europe and duck fehooting. and tlu-y I ave no time; that wo enjoy j |Mctun s, and sculptured marble, and 1 poetry. and literature, and we said: j 11' r»«'s another $10,000,000 to your endit, Mr. OHa-l*odrida And then wo called upon an acquaintance with $3,000,000 and liright's disease of the kidneys, and another wealthy friend with bud digestion, another with the gravel, and as we would not exchange our healthy kidneys for diseased ones, and our digestion for a rebellious one, we added several millions to the inven- Tory of our wealth Then we culled to tniix! n friend with hereditary gout, ami another at whose lu.irtlistone si in shivMring horror the dreadful spectral fear <>t insinity—siu inherit* d disease that may tnaku its appearance At any moment; another with com»uiup> tivt tendencies, aud we thought ot our honored parent, eighty-nine years of age, a ha!e, Warty, virtu« us old man, who his passed an honirnMe, honest, teiujvor.ite life, and now stands con fronting death and looking him square ly in the face, welcoming hiui, not as a thing of horror, hut as a friend who shall lift from his shoulders the burden of a well-spent, useful and laborious life. From him we hare inherited the chance* of a stout and healthy old age. We would not sell our chances for ever sk uiany millions. At night, when we reached home and turned on the gas, and commenced to swear at the quality, and the memory of past hills, we added all Haggin's money to Peter Donahue's five or nix millions between them, and we hugged ourselves in the virtuous illusion that f>r all their wealth we would not sell as mean gas at such an exorbitant price as they do. We made ourselves a brandy cold out of General Naglee's best vintage, and mentally scored his vinyards, his vaults, his tuns of splendid cognac, and said to our sclve- All these things for which he is toiling are ours at s!' a gadou. We added a little Spring Valley water (only a little;, aud aftei wo hvl drank our tipple we would not have been Charles Webb Howard, with hi* water vexatious, nor Senator Sharon, with his money, his honors aud hi* troubles, and we carried their millions to our pile, took another refresher and went to bed —a goud one—and dieauied that all the money of the bonanza aud the railroad kings, ai. the coin of usurers and ail the wealth of corporations w-re not to be compared with good health, go,*l digestion, a clear conscience and the hop# of glorious immortality that Arises from the consciousness ot a well speut life Wealth is a relative term It »a* John Jacob Astor who once re n arked that a man with a milliou WAS as well off as though he was rich. What anybody wants with a million or more, is what we could never undei stand. More thau enough is a burden. It nukes a slave of its owners. D. O. Mills and Flood, aud all the rr*t of SEATTLE. WASHINGTON TERRITORY, WEDNESDAY, MAY 8, IS7S. g»ur millionaires are only working for their board and clothes—are all toiliig for a salary. The rich man is unfor tunate to have children, or, what is * better form of expression, the children are unfortunate to have v»ealthv parents. We mean of course, the boys, for girls are always nice; we like girls and we hate boys—we mean boys from tifte-en to twenty-five years of age, and it is a curious fact that this is just the j age at which girls are most lovable. The in An who has only money is not rich, and those who have no tuonev may be woalth beyond the dream of money kings. While we were writing there came into our sanctum a vailed woman. She was a lady, hal teeu trouble, was iu deep affliction. Her mi-sion was to ask our intervention that she might get a position in the Mint. She desired us to use our iu ' riuence with S'jperiot*e<ieat Dodge. A widow—two children, and even in | the recital of her woes the mention of I these 'two sweet, beautiful girls' called , up in her eyes an overflow of greatful emotion. Stocks had been her ruin. Furniture gone; gaunt, hollow-eyed poverty stood staring her iu the face. Alone, uukuown aud friendless, there were noue so miserable as she. Wheu we assured her she was a happy wo -1 man and would not exchange her situa tion with any living creature, she gave j us a look of woeful curiosity; and iu reply to our enquiry, if she would ex change places with any woman who was not the mother of her girls, replied | with a resolution and immediate' 'No, sir.' If wo do not get her in the Mint rcmem!>ering our words she will strug gle in better heart, thanking God that she has loved ones more precious to her ! than the wealth of mining shares, If wo were rich as we wish we were; if Providence would only make the blunder of heaping riches upon us; if some fool luck would strike us with a fortune—say fifty or sixty millions— wouldn't we make all the widows and orphans happy! There should not be I an unhappy old maid nor an unem ployed school inarm. Every woman I should go into the Mint, if we had to j coin our bullion over every month. We would give every honest man, who is willing to work, employment. We would build a technic school for boys. We would improve the parks, drain Washerwoman's bay, loau money at five jkt cent per annum to aid families to acquire homesteads. We would reduce the price of water, gas, meat and ice by healthful competition, We : would add sixteeu pages to the Argo- Uii'/t, put colored cover upon it for advertisements, and patiently give it aw ty till all our mouey was gone, and tho Good Master sent down Elijah's chariot for u>. And then—well, wo would take our opera glasses up with us and from onr safe position on the golden ramparts look across the impas- i sable gulf of Dives and the rest of'eiu and remind them of the good tilings they had iu the world, and ask them if they didn't wish they had taken tho Spring Valley Water Works, Lake Merced, San Matoo, Calaveras.
