NEWS OF THE RAIL.
The Effect of the Storm--Many Trains Delayed. The railroads are making the best that they can out of a rather disagreeable sit uation. The rain, it appears, was much more serious all around this city than it was in it. Difficulty was experienced by the Southern Pacific in two or three places. The most serious breaks were in the Solodad cafion, and on the Hue to the East near Shorb's. In the latter di rection there was a very deep washout made by the Christmas storm, which was repaired in a temporary fashion by crib work and sand bagging. This gave way and stopped all trains Friday. The overland lay at Colton all night, and tbe passengers were transferred over the break yesterday morning, and brought to this city at 10 o'clock. A pile-driver was sent down to the place where the road was washed oat, and permanent repairs were effected. The first train got over at about 4 o'clock, and since then this division of the line has been all right. Number 19 to the East, which should have gone oat Friday evening, was held back until yesterday morning, and then dispatched for the East. This part of the line is now in such shape that tbe road can stand a moderate rainfall and still escape injury. The ravages executed by the storm of Christmas upon tbe track through the Soledad canon have already been fully described, and it may be readily understood that they were of a sort not to be easily nor quickly repaired. It rained very hard Thursday and Friday all along this part of the line, and in many.places the crib work wav washed out. The trains which should have arrived in this city on Fri day were held back and did not move until late yesterday afternoon. They will arrive in this city early this morn ing if all goes well. The officers of the company are very confident that this di vision of the road will be all right today. The Santa Ana and Santa Barbara divisions of tbe Southern Pacific are still useless. The intermittent rains which have prevailed for the last two days have made work almost impossible. Connection is still kept up with San Pedro, but the roadbed is in a very shaky condition be tween Cerritos and Long Beach junction. A large gang of men is at work along the line, -piling in sand bags to keep the water away from the rails. The trains are compelled to run very slowly. One train got out to Loug Beach yesterday, bnt owing to the quantity of mud which was washed upon the track it was unable to get back. In the event of heavier rains the company will exert themselves to the utmost to keep the San Pedro road open, in order to bring in passengers and freight from San Francisco by the steam ship line. The Cajon pass, on tbe Santa Fe, is blocked. There have been no very con siderable land slides but the rain has washed down a quantity ot mud and gravel over the track. The Santa Fe people are discussing with the Southern Pacific the advisability of sending their trains from Barstow up to Mojave to bring them in on the line of the latter company, and if the Southern Pacific northern connection is all right today and the Cajon still impassable that plan will probably be adopted. There are several obstructions on the Southern California line between here and Pasadena, and no trains ran over that part of the line yesterday and will lot until Monday. This morning at 10:30 a train will start from this city for 3an Bernaidino, syer the Orange divis ion of the line. No trains got through to San Diego .yesterday. There are serious washouts in tbe vicinity of San Juan which will not be repaired for a couple >f days. While the rains continue travel will probably be very light, as tbe trains are compelled to run at a slow rate of speed and are more or lecfl subject to stop pages. If the storm had only held off a few days longer both the roads would probably have been in a condition to stand a much severer fall of rain than the ore which bas just taken place. Tbe total number of people arriving in Oalif jrnia during the first eleven months of tbe past year, by land and water, was 98,756. Tbe total nnmVer leaving during the same time was 81,672, leaviDg a net gain in our population of 17,084 In 1888 tbe arrivals numbered 130,268 and departures 86,830, leaving a gain of 43,438. For 1887 the arrivals were 89,823, departures, 57,193, gain, 32,630. Daring the eleven months ending No vember 30, 3,503,792 gallons of Califor nia wine were shipped from San Fran cisco to New York by sea. The amount shipped overland by rail from various points in the State during tbe earns time amounted to 3,949,400 gallons. Tbe total number of gallons exported by land anri sea was 7,465,520, valued at $3,048,909. or nearly 41 cents per gallon. During the first eleven months of 1888 the num ber of gallons exported amounted to 6,707,944, valued at $2,794,413. For 1887 the number of. gallons was 5,806,800, valued at $2,380,700 The production of wine was leas last year than for 1887 or 1888, and unless prices stiffen materially tbe falling off will continue next year, tbe grapes being dried instead of pressed. W. H. H. Hart, tbe attorney of tbe Union Pacific at San Francisco, is in the city. He was seen yesterday by a Herald reporter and asked about the proposed connection of tbe Utah Central with this city. He said that there was no longer any doubt about the purpose ol the Union Pacific—that it intended to build through to the coast. With regard to when work would begin from this end, tie said that be was not in a position to make definite statements, but that he thought in a few weeks there would be some important news in this matter. • It was learned yesterday from a very reliable source that work would proba bly begin between this city and Sarj Pedro about the middle of February. The contract for the work between Mil ford and Pioche requires that it should be finished by the first of July. 'I lie line across the desert cannot be built during the hot summer weather, and the men now at work near Milford will prooably be pent to this city and woik oi the Ban Pedro connection daring tbe summer months. Ia order to expedite the work it will probably be started this winter or spring. It is also stated on good authority that within a short time a large amount of stock of the Cross road between this city and Pasadena has been sold to St. Louis capitalists, and that it is now controlled by the agents of Jay Gould for the pur pose of making it the Denver and Rio Grande connection into this city. A large party of surveyors are working down the Virgin river in Nevada in the interest of this line. Chamber of commerce.

In deep San Fellz's mountain dell This pleasant chance a time befell: A cloudless day In cany May, The thundering car had borne away From city's din and atmosphere, To breathe awhile the mountain air, A hundred merry imps and elves; By twos and fours, by tens and twelves, They ranged the mountain's sloping side, Or from the shadows, cool and wide, Of giant live oaks, hoary limbed, Gazed on the blue and white of peaks That rose six thousand feet with streaks Of mist iuzoued, that coiled and climbed, Like phalaDxed armies, up their 6teeps. Lo! where his watch Oahuenga keeps Above Sau Feliz's fadeless leaves, A giant rock its brow upheaves Against the steadfast sky—the home Of wild bees, where tho nectared comb Has lain while fifty harvest moons Have filled and waned. The swallows'tunes, lurllisof music, tinkle down The rocky sbait and owlets moan And eyry in its crannied sides. A thousand feet above where glides The ADgeles, its shattered crest .Sweeps to the mountain's loftier breast, Clothed in witch-hazal copses green; And so it stands, midway between The upper peaks and valiey's sod, A statue carved by nature's God; A grim and mighty shape to grace This doorway to his secret place, His dim and awful seat amid The pale Sierras, tempest hid. A challenge broke the rev'rent hush That fell, what time we looked above And felt a thrill of gladness rush Like memory ihrough our souls and prove Our finer Bense to nature shaped. "Let's scale the cliff," one cried and leaped Li Se chamois to the shingly cliff; And, as the bounding herds that sniff The air and mark their leader's course, We paused a moment and, perforce Of one desire, the challenge caught. Then up the hazel slopes we wrought, Till all the valley stretched below, A dream illumeu with vernal glow; Their echoes, «s from fairy land, Of pipes and laughter from the band Of revelers that stayed behind. Pursued us on the errant wind That rode and fell with soft unrest; But higher seemed the rock to rise With every step, until the skies Were pillared on its hoary crest. Faint grew the stronger limbed, and need Mu<t yield the o'erventurous deed. Stretch'd under hazel boughs, that lent A fragrant shade, a trio speut The vernal noon—the task forgone— When lo! we lifted eyes, and on The rocky dome exultant stood The youngest of our troop—a lad f tender years—in solitude; Leaving i ur steps, ascended had That stairway to tho p?le of clouds, As one whose dauntless spirit plods The oteepy path that leads to fame. Ho stcod and proudly carved his name Across the giant's flinty brow, Catting a victor's glance below. A painter's canvas then became My willing brain, and p-ophots flame Infusedit.it breath and shap'd the while My speech's musing undertone; Lo I muntled in tho valley's smile, I made the Past to He alone; Tue vernal hush was memory's own, And that our hazel trysting place The Present's sweet suuicieut, grace; But up the misty mountain ml I'd The viewless tide of years untold; And so 1 read life's passing dream, A pleasing task as well may seem: — We pass from memory's vale apace And, happy, through our destined days We toil and climb, but faint at last Midway the Future and the Past; And where we yield our vital breath, And sink to silent sleep beneath The fragrant hazel's sombre grace, Will younger faith take up the race, And, still on higher purpose bent, Pursue amain life's steep asoeut, Until it Btands with shining feet Where heaven and earth commingling meet ? —H.

SPRING ST NEW YEAR, in its inception, turns another jpoke in the wheel of time, and promises to be, at the aid of the next twelve months, exactly as the force of ci'cum stances will make it. Some, at the end of this period, by continuous hard work, will reap good results. Som> will mourn the vagaries of the fickle goddess. Some wil fold their hands and say, "We'll take it as it comes." And aiother class will modestly follow in the footsteps of success, whether it be gathered in a high or in a lowly calling. We are satis fied with the three hundred and sixty-five days' work of the year 1889, and if the year 1890 can make as good a snowing we will have no reason to comp'ain. To bring about this result means fifty-two weeks—six working days to the veek— hard work with no letting up. It means that the confidence of every purchaser must not only be obtained, but hett. It means that every dollar's worth of merchandise sold at 7 and 9 North Spring must be exactly as represented. In thanking our patrons for the courtesy extended us in the past, we promise to outbid all competitors for a continuation o:' it in the future, and prove our sincerity by getting down at oace to value of dollars and cents.
