THE GREAT CUT IN THE CAJON PASS
A Tremendous Engineering Work — The Forces of Nature Controlled—The Big Mountain Slipper Terraced and Brought Into Subjection. Yesterday a select company went out to see the great cut of the Cajon pass in company with Mr. K. H. Wade, the gen eral manager of the Southern California railway, in the private car of that gen tleman. Amongst the rest were Oen. A. McD. McCook, the commander of the department of Arizona, Major Chauncey B. Baker, of his staff, Mr. Rumsey, an enterprising capitalist of St. Louis, Mr. Hunt, of Hunt & Phillips, the notable engineer, Mr. F. T. Perris, Mr. Hola bird, and several other gentlemen, in cluding Col. H. G. Otis, of the Times, and a representative of the Herald. The route taken was the celebrated Belt line, the party going out by way of Pasadena and Colton, and returning via Riverside and Orange, a description of which trip appeared in the Herald in two papers recently published. We shall therefore dismißs such matters as have been already discussed, and get down to the real objecte of the expedi tion. The Cajon pass has long been famous. It was through the often celebrated Cojote pass, which branches from the Cajon, that the extensive trade be tween Salt Lake City and Los Angeles was formerly carried on. The wagon road that once led up through that break in the moun tains was a melancholy thing indeed, choked up as it has been for years with huge blocks of rock thrown down by the tumultuous floods. A little higher up a new wagon road has been constructed which, though passable, looks difficult. Still a little higher up, on the other side of the track of the Southern California, traces were to be seen of the railroad which Senator John P. Jones projected through this mighty cleft in eyelopean hills. Colonel Joseph U. Crawford, who was Jones's engineer, planned a road on a higher grade than that determined on by the Southern California, and which would have involved a tunnel of 4400 feet. Four hundred feet of this big hole had been dug out when Senator Jones tied up his purse strings and concluded that railway building was a romantic rather than a profitable thing for a private gentleman to undertake single handed. A GIGANTIC WORK —SOMETHING ABOUT GRADES. About this time one realized that one was going up hill at a territic rate. An inquiry as to the grade elicited the fact that it was 3 per cent., or at the rate of 15S 4-10 feet to the mile. For years and years one of the leading topics of discus sion amongst engineers was the diffi culty of mastering the obstacles pre sented by the Cajon pass. Not only was there the question of grade, but the na ture of ttie ground was a Btibject of grave alarm, on account of the slippery character of the moun tain. These misgivings proved to be only too well founded. From the time the great cut was made the officials of the Southern California encountered ex penses, delays and vexations innumer able, trains being delayed ; and, in some cases, detentions of three or four days occurring. The last of these happened last winter, and Mr. K. H. Wade, the sagacious and indefatigable general manager of the Southern California, at once resolved to take tlie bull by the horns. A force varying from sixty-five to eighty men, with a proper complement ol mules and horses, was put on the work in April, and they have about completed their undertaking; and that, fortunately for the company, before the winter rains had fairly set in. The constituents of the fj'reat cut were soapstone and clay, in layers of varying thickness. On one side the great cut rose to a height of 125 feet; on tne other, to about 40 feet, with, of course, a strong pitch towards the lower side. When the rains came the clay layers arrested the water sufficiently to soak the soapstone, and the latter, becoming saturated through and through, naturally began to slide off the smooth surface of the clay, with the inevitable result of hurling thou sands of tons of earth on to the track. The lateral pressure of the mountain was so great, as sometimes to force the rails up a distance of six feet. On other oc casions, the damp of clay and soapstone often rose to a height of fifteen feet above the rails. Tiie length oi the track exposed to these difficulties, and covered by the present work, was about twelve hundred feet, and the work substantially em braced that distance. A GREAT ENGINEERING WORK. The officials of the Southern California took careful note of the situation, and concluded that the eliding hill should be cut back to a distance of twenty-six feet from the track, and that it should then be terraced to its top. As a result of this plan, four terraces have been cut into the treacherous compound and roofed over, the roof projecting suffi ciently to protect the sides of the hill from percolation by the rain, each ter race reaching back ten or fifteen feet. A gutter is provided for each of these roofs, which drains it perfectly. They are cov ered, also with transverse slats, and have received a thorough coating of asphaltum. The angle of the hill has thus been materially changed, rendering it almost im possible that there should be any slide hereafter, and the bases of the earth at the foot of the several terraces have been thoroughly cemented. A completer piece of engineering work has seldom been presented to intelligent ob servers. The company has good reason to congratulate itself on the clever job its competent manager has accomplished through the aid oi coadjutors like Mr. Perris and others. The view from the top of this cut is grand in the extreme. Immense chasms and towering mountains, the latter capped with snow, encounter the eye on all hands. Old Baldy looms up*with special magnificence, and the whole Sierra Madre range is outlined with a Highest of all in Leavening Power.— IT. S. Gov't Report, Aug. 17, 1889.

There are few more entertaining hosts than General Manager K. H. Wade. His hospitality is unbounded and his cuisine is first-class. We may add, there are few more accomplished raconteurs than General McCook. His fund of reminiscence and anecdote are simply illimitable, and he relates anecdotes of some distinguished man, or a good story. with a geniality and success seldom sur passed. He l* charmed with Los Ange les and Southern California, and his ap preciation of the country which be passed through was expressed wit h great warmth and discrimination. The party, as a whole, was pleasant and harmoni ous; and the visit to the "great cut" of the Cajon will be recalled with pleasure by all who participated in it. For a por tion of the trip the party enjoyed the pleasure of the society of ivlr. Frank Sa bichi and Mr. Joseph Wolfskill. prizeTchickens. Today the Last of the Poultry Show. Children's Day. The judge at the poultry show finished his task yesterday, and at the close of the evening the colors on the coops told the story of many good birds well scat tered around the room. Some of the exhibition pens (five birds) ran up some high scores, and the race for the sweepstakes prize has been close, as can be seen by the appended list: Score. Coop No. 1, Silver Wyandotte*. 182^ Coop No. 12, Golden Wyandottes 183 Coop No. 10, White Wyandottes 182 Coop No 19, Plymouth Rocks 177 Coop No. 30, Light Brahmas 1B8!4 Coop No. 100, Red Caps 177 Coop No. SO, K.

It will be seen that the last two are very close together. Mr. W. W. Thurs ton of Los Angeles can well be proud of his tine pen of birds in coop 01, and he will dream of high-flying birds for more than a year to come. The last number ought not to be passed by without especial mention. Ninety six is owned by Master Robert Rowan of Pasadena, a young man of some 14 summers. The three Wyandotte men are close after each other, near enough to be re lated. The score cards are all up, and to one interested in such matters it will well be worth 25 cents and an hour's time to look over these records. Seldom are so many really tine birds found together this side'of the Rockies, The effect of the last show is in this show-room. The show will be kept open today for the benefit of the school children, who seem to havequite a liking for the feath ered pets. The admission will be 5 cents for them. It will be an object lesson that will last them a lifetime, and none will be found too old to learn something new, as well as pass a pleasant hour. AMUSEMENTS. Frank Daniels Packing the Los An geles.

A surprise, and a most pleasant one, comes with the tidings that Emma Ab bott and her new grand opera company are to come on Monday, December 22d, for a special season of six performances, four nights and two matinees. The en gagement is made by special efforts and inducements on the part of manager Wyatt oi the Los Angeles theater, who succeeded in obtaining a change of route by Miss Abbott's manager, Mr. Pratt. The diva is reported to be in brilliant voice, and to have a great big organization that discounts in size and make-up any former Abbott, company. The size of the organization may be judged by the list of principals, sixteen in number: Abboti, Anondale, Mirella, Emma Broderick, Michelena, l'ache, Rudolphi, Dttßois, Keaby, Pru ette,- Broderick, Karl, Bornik", Vernon and Ellerington. Herr Albert Krausse wields the baton over a powerful chorus and a doable orchestra, said to be by far the strongest the Abbott manage ment ever carried. A repertorie of new and old operas has been arranged, viz : Ernani, Borneo and Juliet, Bohemian Girl, Anne Boleyn (the greatest opera Emma Abbott ever brought out), Rose of Castile, and II Trovatore, in the or der named. THE DIME MUSEUM. The managers of the Dime Museum have a treat In store for the school children this afternoon. They give a special matinee for the scholars and have arranged a programme that will delight the hearts of the youngsters.

Yesterday's Proceedings in the Marshall Damage Suit—The Defense Introduces Some Unsavory Witnesses. There were sensational developments in the $50,000 damage case yesterday. The young plaintiff, Miss Bessie Mar shall, wept bitterly at intervals, es pecially when Charles Reiter testified that he had been intimate with her when she was employed as a wait ress at the Del Mar hotel. Miss Moore, who was employed at the Del Mar as book-keeper, testified that she had noticed that Bessie Marshall and Dennis O'Brien were on very familiar terms. She also stated that when Miss Marshall was taken ill that she called upon her with $60 from Mr. Taylor. In return for the money she got a statement to the effect that Harry Branscom was respon sible for her unfortunate condition, and that the statement was obtained at the request of Taylor. The witness, upon cross-examination, stated that she ! opened Mr. Taylor's letters and had a ! copy of all the letters sent Taylor and I O'Brien by the plaintiff and her mother. 'In brief, Miss Moore testified that she | had been Mr. Taylor's confidential clerk. In the afternoon Mr. White, of Now | hall, was put on the stand in rebuttal. I He stated that he never knew of a party named Harry Bostwick, living at New hall. It was reserved for a chunky little German named Charles Reiter to create the biggest sensation of the trial thus ! far. He testified that he was cook at the ■ marine hospital at San Diego, and that ; he had once upon a time been a cook at the Del Mar hotel. Reiter stated in a j most cold-blooded, matter-of-fact way i that he attempted to seduce Miss Bessie 1 Marshall, but that he did not succeed. The witness then related his sue- I cess the second time, and went into the disgusting details without the least concern. Reiter stated that he had only been intimate with heron one occasion. Upon cross-emamination, he testified that the girl had requested him not to say anythiag about the intimacy, and that he had promised that he would not. The attorney for the defense asked the witness with as much sarcasm as he could, if he didn't feel ashamed of himself in telling any other party. Tbe witness replied that he had only told one person, viz.a Mr. Bennett, a brother in-law of Taylor, the defendant in this case. The case will be resumed today. Dear at tho Price. | A change of mind has often occurred after the marriage bans have been pub lished. A clergyman tells recently of a man having put in the bans, and after they had been twice published asked if he might substitute the name of another girl for tho one first entered, adding by way of explanation: "I think she will i suit me better in the long run." On : being told that tho change could not be I effected unless tho first bans were with j drawn, others substituted and the fees paid a second time, also that tho full interval, including three Sundays, lnus* elapse before the marriage could be cele brated, the man hesitated. "Do you mean to say tbat I should havo to begin all over again?" he asked. "Certainly," was the reply; "the bans must be pub lished three times in the names of the persons who are actually to be married." '•And most I pay all over again if I have the other girlV" "Yes," said the clergy man. 'Weil, I caU that too bad." The candidate for matrimony remained for some moments in a brown study, then broke out with: "Then I'll stick to the first girl. I'm not going to pay twice over for anybody." He was mar ried during tho following week in accord ance with this decision, evidently con sidering the proposed subsititution would be too dear at the price of double fees. This did not say much for No. 2, as would be bridegrooms are usuaUy of all people most inclined to be liberal.— Latlies' Treasury. Steel Tanks for Storing Grain.

St. Paul's Young Ladies and Their Bazaar. The bazaar given by the St. Paul's guild in aid of the St. Paul's hospital, closed last night. It is expected that the affair will net something like If4oo. The attendance last evening was large and the different booths did a rushing business. A gentleman remarked in tbe hearing of the Herald reporter "that he had never seen so many pretty girls at a bazaar before." Mrs. Fred terry made an ideal presi dent, and was ably seconded in her efforts by Miss Sallie Miles, Miss George Arnold, Miss Gephard, Mrs. Ida White, Mrs. Sanford Johnson, Mrs. Hugh Vail, who conducted the different booths. Miss Norman Robinson, Miss Mamie Miles, Miss Tyler and Miss Robinson were gracefully receiving all visitors to the Paper booth. Mrs. Otheinan Stevens, Miss Mary Banning, Miss Lucy Banning, Miss Daisy Rose, Miss Burnett, were present in the booths for the first time. The ladies of the Fancy booth did Splendidly, disposing of nearly all their artistic needlework. The Gautenmla booth was universally admired for its quaintnees and originality. Latenser's Mandolin club furnished the music. The promoters of the bazaar are to be congratulated on the artistic and finan cial success of their undertaking. DAILY REAL ESTATE RECORD.
