Pacific coast, I recognize tbe fact that

The next morning after leaving
Worthington found us at North Platte,
Neb., aud here was our first disap
pointment. On viewing the great
North Platte river, that figures so
largely in the history of Nebraska, we
found it a stream, muddy, shallow and
full of sand bars, with only water
enough in it to make a respectable
sized brook, owing probably to contin
ued dry weather. From here to the
mountains was one vast stretch of*un
broken prairie, beautiful to behold but
apparently worthless when viewed
from the standpoint of a farmer.
stack of hay or straw, or a man plow
ing, to break the monotony of theeter
nal plains would have been a great re
lief, but as nothing of the kind ap
peared I was occasionally forced to
turn my eyes towards the inside of the
car to find something on which to rest
This scene was intensified in every
respect when we crossed over into Col
orado. Language is entirely inade
quate to describe the magnificently un
dulating praiiies that meet the view of
the traveler across the corner of the
state named, traversed by the main
line of the
P., but like the rest,
worthless except for grazing, and seem
ingly not very good for that.
The winter just passed, like its pre
decessor, was very severe over the
plains and thousandsof cattle perished.
In the towns along the railroad from
25 to 75 per cent of the buildings were
empty, the people had a dejected and
discouraged look, aud would gladly
leave, but like a man stranded on a
desolate and barren island in mid
ocean, they have no way of getting
•ut, as it is several hundred miles
either way to anything better. One
man stated that he started in the win
ter with 1,500 head of cattle, and
spring found him with 55 head of very
poor and almost worthless cattle, the
rest having perished during the win
ter. Some day this country may be
the garden ot the world, but it must
of a necessity be ages and ages hence,
unless the millions of capital that is
being hoarded in the east by individ
uals and syndicates be placed here to
bring this vast country to what it un
doubtedly would be with plenty of
water, which could be obtained by ir
rigation. Here is a chance for those
who have grown enormously rich by
robbery and oppression of their fellow
man, to partly make amends for their
lmes. But will they do it? Yes,
when they are sure of several hundred
per cent profit ou the investment. But
I forego the temptatiou to dwell lon
ger on this lest I occupy too much of
your valuable space.
Crossing over into Wyoming the
monotony was soon broken by the
abruptness of the change in the face of
the country, first hills and then cliffs
appearing to the view with a sudden
ness that made it appear as if they
jumped out of the ground. An hour
was spent at the lively, busy, energetic
ci of Cheyenne, giving us a chance
to speculate on the probability of be
ing riddled with bullets, but we were
assured that the majority were peace
ful if the minority were not of the
Onward and upward we sped until
Laramie was reached. Here another
hour was spent and we boldly sallied
forth, in defiance of any imagined dan
ger from stray knives or bullets, em
boldened by the clear pure atmosphere
and our nearness to the clouds. The
energy, enterprise and push of Chey
enne was distanced bv this city of
7,000 inhabitants and as many feet
above sea level. We counted over 86
business plants aside from ordinary
stores, shops, etc. Here is more life
and energy to the square Inch than in
any other place in the U. 8.
Still onward and upward we
til Summit, the highest point reached
on the Rockies by the railroad. The
day was fair and the air very clear and
distance was nothing, for nothing
could be seen outside of the little sta
tion but desolation drear and dismal,
but grand withal. The air was keen
and a good tester of weak lungs. Just
across the track towered the monu
ment of Oaks Ames, of Credit Mobi~
lier notoriety, put, not "where it
would do the most good," but
would do the least barm.
During the next several hours ride
after leaving the Summit, nothing
much is to be teen but sage brush and
alkali, with an occasional mining town

light suddenly broke upon us in regard
to the true origin of tobogganing, and
we for the first time comprehended the
meaning of the term going down grade
"like the devil" which we had so often
heard in connection with tobogganing
and which our train at the same time
was said to be doing. However we
soon left the vicinity of the Old Fel
low's former haunts behind and pulled
into Ogden, the suburb of the Mormon
stronghold in former times, when
Brigliam Young, in the glory of his
power, married every other woman in
Here we were obliged to lay over
nearly seven hours and taking advan
tage of the opportunity, we visited
points of interest in the city and by a
little questioning gained a fair knowl
edge of the condition of affairs and of
the dangers of being to uchly mar
ried. Finding tbat it was a peniten
tiary offense we hastened back to our
car and offered the conductor "two
bits" to pull out, but as he stubbornly
refused we concluded that he was go
ing to take the risk.
The city is beautifully situated, sur
rounded by snow capped mountains
that bom up to such an extent as to
impress one with the idea that they
are but a few rods away when they
were in reality from six to ten miles
off. The soft spring bret zes and the
scent of starting vegetation was deli
cious after experiencing the kten chill
air of the mountains.
From here we turned i.orth by win
of the Oregon Short Line and reached
Pocatello, Idaho, the next morning.
From there we followed the great val
ley the Snake river for several hun~
died miles over a vast stretch of level
prairie covered with sage brush. A
magnificent view of tbe American
Falls on Snake river made a lasting
impression on us, as did the terrible
alkali dust of the plains of V\ estern
Idaho, that filled the eyes of passen
gers and literally covered everything
in the cars. Relief same at night when
we crossed over into Oregon, aud, re
tiring tD our berths, we wake up at
Arlington on the Columbia river next
From here to Portland the road fol
lows the river and the magnificent
mountain scenery of the Cascade range
is fully as grand as anything the
Rockies had It* offer. At Biidal Veil
Falls the train stopped long enough to
give ilie passengers a chance to view
tbe water fall and the grandeur of the
surrounding scenery. The Dalles next
appeared, calling forth, exclamations
of surprise and delight froir. the trav
elers, being grandly beautiful beyond
the power of words to describe.
At noon our train pulled into Port
land, being nearly three hours behind
time. Here agniit we were obliged to
lay over for several hours before con
tinuing our journey, and ag#iti taking
advautage of our opportunity we vis
ited some of the points of interest iu
the city. Taking the motor car we as
cended Portland Heights, from which
a bird's eye view of the city and valley
is obtained. *At our feet lay the city,
the Willamette ahd Columbia rivers.
At our right, the depot, the docks and
bay, with steamers and sailing vessels
lying at anchor while in the distance
could be seen the towering peaks of
Mount Helleiis, Mount Hood, and over
in Washington, Mount Adams. The
day being bright and clear, the v&w
was fine and the scene enchanting be
yond description, and we reluctantly
descended as it were to earth and mor*
common-place things. Here we found
the weather very warm, excessively so
to us from Minnesota and Northern
Iowa, with myriads of wild flowers id
bloom in the mountains, and fr,uit
trees of all kinds loaded with blossoms
in the valleys. The air seemed laden
with the scent of a thousand different
perfumes vthicli to inhale was life,
health, sweetness and beauty. It was
like being transported to a
"Land that Is fairer than day.
Where the flowers eternally bloom."
In my next I will give some particu

prospects and its people, this letter be
