From the 8. F. Chronicle,
Everybody supposed that the once
projected land swindle of tlie Los Pri
etos y Najalyegua, or Jose Dominguez
grant, near Santa Barbara, which a
party of unprincipled land-speculators
trietl to force through Congress and
the Land Office a few years ago, was
dead and buried; hut there are indica
tions that the snake was only scotched
and that the swindle is again to lift
its head. In this business there are
certain manipulations by the United
States Surveyor-General's otlice which
Gen. Stratto'n must not lose time in
rising to explain. As they stand now
they have an ugly look, and do not re
dound to the credit of an office which,
to say the least, is not exactly like
Cteaar's wife, nor has been.
THK HISTORY OF THK CASE.
Jose Dominguez was an old native
Oalifornian, who was horn in the last
century near what is now known as
Santa Barbara. In 1845, he being
then quite an old man, petitioned Pio
Pico, the Mexican Governor, for a
grant of lands near Santa Barbara,
under the Mexican colonization laws
of 1524. A few months afterward the
grant was made, subject to several
conditions, which the old man par
tially fulfilled, the change of Govern
ment from Mexican to United States,
having, it is supposed, interfered with
them. One of these unfulfilled con
ditions was that the land should be
accurately surveyed and the number
of square leagues it contained sent to
the City of Mexico, that a patent
might issue. Nothing further was
done upon the grant until 1856, eleven
years after. Meantime, old Jose Do
minguez's cattle and horses ran wild
over it, though the exact limits were
never defined.
" CHEAP AS DIRT."
On the 17th of April, 185G, Domin
guez, who was an ignorant man, un
able to read or write even In his own
language, sold out his entire interest
in the grant for one dollar. Why he
should have done this is not apparent,
unless it was that he was led to be
lieve by certain interested parties thai
the grant was utterly valueless and
liable to ruin him in the way of taxa
tion. At any rate he sold it, and
his interest in the grant ceased for
ever. Thomas Cevasco was the pur
chaser. He, in turn, sold the claim
to another native, a few months after
wards for a like consideration —one
dollar. By this time, however, a few
Yankees had began to get into that
section, and to their shrewd wits it
soon became apparent that the grant
was worth something. A man named
Charles E. Huse bought it of the last
owner on December 1, 1864, for $100,
and he, in turn, conveyed it to the
railway king of Pennsylvania, Thos.
A. Scott, and others, in the March
following lor the consideration of
$1,000.
PULLING THE FIRST WIRE.
And now the cause of the great rise
in what was always considered a
worthless grant looked out.
The land was supposed to lie to the
north of Santa Barbara, northward of
the range of mountains by that name,
but south of the San Rafael moun
tains. It was worthless except for
grazing, but tho speculators cared
nothing for that. As there never had
been any survey of it, they hoped so to
re-locate its lines as to bring it within
a valuable arable section, withou ref
erence to whose interests it might in
fringe. The first thing to be done
was to have tne old Mexican grant
confirmed by the United States Gov
ernment. On the oth of March, 1806,
Senator Conness presented to the
United States Senate a memorial, or
what purported to bo such, from Do
minguez, praying that he be confirmed
in the old grant. The memoralist
showed that he was seventy years of
age; that he was born on the land,
and had always lived upon it; that his
father and mother resided here for
more than sixty years up to the time
•of their death, leaving children,
grandchildren, and great-grandcl.il
dren, who still reside here, and have
no other home; that he did not sub
mit his grant to the Land Commis
sioner of the United States appointed
by Act of Congress in the year 1851,
for the reason that he was not aware
of the existence of that Commission,
h'3 being an obscure and humble in
dividual, and wholly ignorant of the
English language; and if he had
known of its existence, he was too
poor to pay the high fees which were
at that time charged by attorneys in
California. He confidently relied up
on the title given him by the Mexican
Government as good and valid,and was
told it would be upheld by the treaty
of Guadalupe Hidalgo, made between
the United States and Mexico; but
was informed that his title ought to
be submitted to tbe authorities of the
United States for recognition, where
upon he prayed that he might be per
mitted to prove title, etc., etc.
CARRYING THE FIRST OUTPOST.
This appeal so touchingly made by
Los Angeles Daily Herald.
tbe old Mexican had its effect. Sena*
torConness Introduced a bill, and the
same day.lt was passed, directing tho
Surveyor-General to proceed ami sur
vey tbe hinds In accordance with the
original title papers on file in his 01
--fice. Tlie hill thus confirmed the
grant to Dominguez o/jr7 hit assign*
forever. The matter hung fire in the
House, and there was an evident dis
inclination to hack up what the Sen
ate had done. To reassure the doubt
ing minds Levi Parsons sat down and
wrote a pathetic letter to a member,
of which the following is an extract:
a GRAPE-VINE appeal.
S , * t • *
I was 111 the county of Santa Barbara last
September, and visited the raneho in Ques
tion, as a matter of curiosity, to see a large
grape-vine growing on it, and said tube the
second largest in the world. I measured it
myself, and found it covered a superficial
area Of over S.Oiio feet. This -dottle vine la
about the sole product ofthe entire raneho,
tlie lands being very hilly and leml-moun
lalnons in their character. I found the mother
oi tie petitioner and the entire family Of chil
dren, grand-children and gieal griind-chil
dren, most of them lying idly under this cele
brated Vine, the sals of grapes Irom it being
about their only support; last year the pro
duct ol this single vino being about six tons
of gfttpes, as they told me, The old lady dli 11
laal Pall upon the property, at the age of 109
years, she ami her husband having lived un
disturbed on this properly for upward of sixty
years. The vine was planted by the old lady
some fifty years ago. I found Die family very
poor and enjoying the respect of all parties ih
the county. 1 visited the tamily in Company
with Mr. Sparks, an American, who had
lived In tlie county since 1H;I2. He verified the
correctness of nil the statements of the fam
ily, anil fiom What lsaw myself and what was
told me by very respectable citizens of tlie
county I have no doubt ofthe truthfulness of
all of the statements of JoseDomlngues In
his petition, in my judgment, tbereeannot
be presented a ease Calling more for lhe equi
table Interposition of the Government to pro
lect the grant of the former Government to
the family than this, and I earnestly ask that
you will examine tlie papers and make an
effort in their behalf.
Lkvl Parsons.
THE BILL BECOMES A LAW.
Upon the strength of this and other
representations, the House of Repre
sentatives passed the Senate bill, and
on the 12th of June, 1886, it became a
law. The next thing to he done was
to have the tract surveyed. Upson
was then Surveyor-General. On the
25th of April, 1867, he sent George H.
Thompson, a deputy surveyor, for the
survey of the Dominguez claim. What
was accomplished is best explained
by an extract from his report, dated
September 18, 1868. He says:
I furnished Mr. Thompson with a traced
copy of the original papers on file In the Mex
ican archives, as his guide in executing said
survey. Deputy Thompson reported that the
calls were so uncertain and vague that lie
found it difficult to make a survey.
The grantees of the claim, through their at
torney, E. J. Pringle, then offered to prove Ju
dicial possession by affidavits covering the ex
tent of Ihe present survey; but I declined to
receive any evidence except that mentioned
in the Act of Congress as govern ing in v action
in I he matter.
They then requested lliat a survey should
be made according to their views and at their
own risk. In order to bring the matter before
this office for examination, 1 so instructed t he
deputy. Mr. Thompson returned a survey
comprising an etxentof 208,721 33-1000 acres, as
the tract claimed by the grantees of Domin
guez under saio Act of Congress.
The location and area of this survey did not
meet my views as to tlie construction of said
Act, for t he following reasons:
1. The original evidence of title shows Mint
the grant was one under the colonization laws
of Mexico, and could not therefore exceed the
quantity of eleven square leagues.
-. The extent of said tract under said title,
as far as I am able tojudtre, was simply a long
narrow valley, situate between two ranges of
mountains, and bounded by the Arroyo de la
Carpentaria In the east, and the Paraje de los
Prietos in the west, and about three leagues
In extent, according to the scale on the map.
L. Upson,
IT, s. Surveyor-General,
This survey, made at the instance of
the claimants, it will be seen, took in
over 208,000 acres, nearly ten times a*
much as poor old Dominguez ever
thought of asking the Mexican Gov
ernment for; and not only this, but
changed its location so as to take In
some of the choicest improved lands
on th" outskirts of Santa Barbara.
