MISS ADDIS' MEXICAN LETTER. The Alhambra. San Gabriel and Santa Ana, and their Affairs Discussed in Brief Paragraphs. I had passed by Zacatecas nearly a dozen tiroes, but had never stopped there, owing chiefly to the piercing wind that inspires one with terror in the brief stop at this station. One bright Novem ber morning I took an extraordinary number of wraps and manfully stepped into the train running down into the city. I had a number of friends in the place, but as Fate would have it, not a man or woman of them but was absent, for business or pleasure, at the moment. Among other letters of introduction, I had one for our Consul at that point, but the gentleman could not be found for a long time, and meanwhile I found quar ters at the Hotel Zacatecano, which, like many other hostelries of Mexico, occu pies an ancient convent. And I may say, moreover, that the restaurant here—the house is on the European plan, and lodg ings and dining-room are under different management—is about the best I have found in Mexico, while the charges are very moderate. The manager is a comely and pleasant little Frenchwoman, whose brother is the cook, and they understand their business. My some what dismal outlook became modified after I had presented my letter of intro duction to Mr. Juan Petit, leading banker and capitalist. When a Mexican letter of introduction is not dishonored com pletely—a thing which, it must be said, rarely happens—it is good for a large reserve fund of courtesy and kindness. Mr. Petit at once set about putting me in communication with the people wbo could give me most information, and planned some expeditions with members of his family. Some of the persons to whom he introduced me named a num ber of Americans in the city, but I could recognize the name of no acquaintance among them, owing to the incompetency of Latin tongues to cope with Anglo-Saxon patronymics, as I discovered later. Don Antonio Uiloa, public librarian of the city, brought around a gentleman named Meyers, a citizen of San Francisco, who kindly offered to escort me to the Bufa, and we set out thither. It is rated about 500 feet perpendicular from the main plaza to the top of the Bufa, but it really seemed to me I felt more fatigue in ascending it than I did when I climbed Popocatepetl, notwithstanding the road is wide and goes up in long, sweeping ; zig-zags that might be traversed by a carriage. This hill is notable in the His tory of Zacatecas. At its foot camped Jaun de Tolosa, when he first come over hither. There is the scene of the combat erroneously said to have taken place between the Spaniards and the Indians, when the Virgin, patroness of the city, is reported to have "throvn dust in'the eyes" of the latter, most literally. The Bufa is topped by a chapel built by the Count de la Laguna, which is regarded as inferior in sacredness only to the shrines at Amecameca and Guadalupe ■ Hidalgo. At the right, facing the chapel, is a crest of rock, perhaps 100 feet higher, which from a distance i is remarkably suggestive of some great pre-historic monster, couchant. On this ; bill were burned, during one of Mexico's i revolutions under General Kocha, back in the GO'S, the bodies of tbe men slain In the combat, and some scandal-mongers assert that to the dead were added many of the wounded of the conquered party. The view from the Bufa is grand, com prising tbe wild, savage hills, the deep, dark gorges, the monuments and furnace ■ chimneys and tunnel-mouths of the mining fraternity, with the spurs of the Sierra Marire that ran almost to the Pa cific, and, deep in the ravine below, the 1 city, whose ground plan, curiously enough, is an excellent outline of a i "spread-eagle." It was almost quite dark when we came down from the Bufa and made our way through the quaint streets, many of which are quite like wide stairways; and under great arches, like the bridges of Venice, that span other thoroughfares. The lights were all a-twinkle and the effect was finely picturesque. My escort almost ran against a soldierly figure of a man, sauntering along, ab sorbed like ourselves in the foreignness of it. There was a halt, a few words of explanation, and then I was shaking hands with Mr. Harmer, of whom I had been hearing from California friends for some two years past, and whose clever paintings had won my regard when last in Los Angeles. Our paths in Mexico had crossed more than once, but we had i not met before. Mr. Harmer certainly | has a wonderful genius for work on i Mexico—perhaps even more than had Kate More, that clever young artist whom Angelenos will remember as hav ing done no little to perpetuate the sur viving traces of the Mexican occupation. But she, alas, ''done an' went an' got married," with "The Story of Avis" staring her in the face, and Mr. Harmer is, happily, still among us. Some of his work on Mexico is very fine. There i 9 in the public library at Zacatecas a sketch by him of a woman making tortillas, which, for spirit, coloring and general fidelity could hardly be surpassed. For some weeks past he has been with friends in the wilder por tions of the interior, and lam told he will bring back a splendid harvest of material. Against the competition of Mexican painters I am told that Mr. Harmer will be selected to redecorate the cathedral at Leon, and my friend Don Francisco V—, the commissioner who is rebuilding that flood-devastated city, assures me that upon his own de sire depends the certainty of a successful future in Mexico for Mr. Harmer. I can insure him a kindly welcome from the fraternity in this capital. To return to the Zacatecas question. From "the lay of the land," the preva lence of mining claims and appearances in general I had supposed that city to be the apotheosis of dryness and sterility, and was not a little astonished to find fruit and vegetables abundant. But lo and behold! It proves to be true that the surrounding country is a remarkably rich agricultural district. In few places in Mexico, for instance, is milk cheaper than there, where it sells for a cuartilla FIVE CENTS. the cuartillo— that is to say, about six cents per quirt. And as for pasture, the grasses are wonderfully rich in saccharine matter, and stock requires far less in ' ouai tit/ than of our forage. The hun dreds of mules employed in mixing paste in the mining haciendas or reduction works are, when common care is taken of them, fat and sleek, lor all their mis erable work. "Oh! there is nothing in teresting about Zacatecas!" not a few of her citizens assured me, but I think quite the contrary. Not the least notable feature is the nature of the original con quest of the Indians, whom, perhaps by way of variety only, the invadiug Span iards treated with the utmost kindness, and who in return become devotedly at tached to their conquerors. Then the anomaly of such a city, built in a deep and contracted ravine, in a country devoid of forests, lacking even the mezquit groves of which dear old Father Frejes, quaia and impartial historian that he is, writes as existing there in 1839. Then—to make a wide jump, the tolerance of so isolated a town for Protestant mission aries. Individuality, of course, has much to do with these things, and Rev. T. F. Wallace, tbe chief of the missionaries at Zacatecas, is a gentleman so venerable and so irreproachable as to command,the high regard in which he is held even by most uncompromising Roman Catholics. But he enjoys also a high social regard which is Beldom accorded to his kind in Mexico, and I learned that other mis sionaries also were very kindly treated in Zacatecas. But I have gossiped enough for one letter, and will defer further ob servations for a future screed. Y. H. Asms. City of Mexico, Hotel Humboldt, Jan uary 1, 1889. Albambra and San Uabrlel. The ball which was intended for Christmas eve, was postponed until the evening of the 31st. There were only a few couples present and to present a fur ther cause of disappointment Prof. Fischer was not on hand. Nevertheless the evening was a very pleasant one indeed. At 11 o'clock supper was served in the dining room of the Alhambra Hotel. After refreshments dancing was resumed and was continued until the first two hours of the New Year had passed. The eclipse was viewed by many; both old and young had blackened glasses watching the progress of the moon. I showed the eclipse to a Chinaman; he looked at it very studiously for a few minutes through a blackened piece of glass and then said, "I think so bug eat lum sun." , Miss Albertson, assisted by Misses Phillips and Tonnison, received on New Year's day. They were the recipients of many calls. Mr. H. Cherry has been ill, but is now feeling better and is able to be about. Mrs. Dobbins, the wife of Colonel J. R. Dobbins, and child, have returned from the East. The building boom shows no signs of stopping in Alhambra, and there are symptoms of its beginning in East San Gabriel. i'he East Han «iabriei is now iv iuo management of a gentleman by the name of Mr. Cooper. Owing to the weather there has been some delay in the completion of the bank building. Work is now being rapidly pushed and it will be ready for business soon. Father Smythe, of the Mission Church, has been sent North by the Bishop. Rev. Christ, of the Methodist, and Rev. Dinsmore, of the Presbyterian, changed pulpits yesterday. Both ser mons were interesting. For about a week it was impossible to obtain water in the Mission ditch dis trict. Friday the citizens turned out in full numbers, and with hoes and shovels soon had a full head of water flowing from the canon near Mr. Shorb's residence. M. Santa Ana Items. The quarterly meeting of the Pomolo gical Society was held at this place last week. Notwithstanding the small at tendance and email exhibit, it was a pleasant and profitable meeting to the members and greatly enjoyed by those of our citizens who attended. Our peo ple were disappointed that the business of the meeting occupied so much of the time that they did not have an oppor tunity to show the visitors over the val ley, for it is now appearing at its best, with no mud, no dust, with the trees still retaining their leaves, the hills covered with a Insurant growth of wild grass and the fields with growing grain. The public schools of the city opened for the spring term on last Wednesday. They are in an excellent condition, be ing presided over byj a corps of twelve excellent teachers. Professor Manley, the Superintendent, who was induced to give up his position in Ohio, where he stood high as an educator, to take charge of our schools at the beginning of last term, has shown himself to be a superintendent of more than ordinary ability and an in structor inferior to none. During the short time in which he has had charge of the schools he has made his influence felt in more than one direction, and should we be fortunate enough to retain him, we will soon have a system of schools of tbe highest standard. If there is anything that Santa Ana needs at the present time more than another, it is cheaper rents in the busi ness part of town. Our rents for dwelling houses are reasonable enough, but the rents charged for store rooms are enor mously high. The owners of business blocks seem to have no business fore sight whatever. They seem to think that because they have a tenant in their building he is bound to stay there and submit to this system. Come down with your rent, gentlemen, and give your ten ants a chance to make a little profit on their investment, or you will soon have empty rooms with no rents coming in. Your tenants can't afford such rents, the town can't afford it, you can't afford it. Niblky. St. Paul's Church Social. The social given in the parish hall of St. Paul's Church last evening was most successful, both in point of attendance and in the entertainment offered. The feature of tbe programme was the corner playing of Herr Hugo Tuerpe, of the im perial royal orchestra of Bilse, Berlin. This gentleman is a recent arrival in our city and was deservedly encored. The piano solo by Miss Mona Laux, the vocal solo by Miss White and the violin solo by Miss Maynard were also well ren dered. Then followed the serving of re freshments, after which the entertain i ment was concluded by an exhibition of magic lantern pictures given by William i J Flipping.
