THE GREAT CUT IN THE CAJON PASS
A Tremendous Engineering Work — The
Forces of Nature Controlled—The Big
Mountain Slipper Terraced and Brought
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
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
A GIGANTIC WORK —SOMETHING ABOUT
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

A HOSPITABLE HOST AND AGREEABLE
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.

EMMA ABBOTT COMING FOR CHRISTMAS.
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,

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 :

TWO OF A KIND.
MESSRS. CHARLES RKITEB AND
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
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
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.—

A RUSHING BUSINESS.
St. Paul's Young Ladies and Their
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.
