Carr, there was quite a large and appreciative audience, and the papers read were of unusual in terest. The first was by Prof. Frank J. Polley on The Sociology of the Native Californian. He described their life and characteristics from personal observa tion, and commended them particularly for their hospitality and generosity to strangers, noting many good points in them which are generally overlooked. Mr. Guinn read the second paper, which was on the life and character of the famous hunter and trapper, Jede diah Smith, who was the first white man that ever crossed the plains, coming across the mountains to California in 1826, twenty-two sears before the dis covery of gold in California. He was at the head of the Smith. Sublett & Jackson Fur company of St. Louis, and was out on a fur hunting expedition, when the party became short of supplies, and California being nearer than any other source of supplies, he determined to push on across the mountains. He linally reached Southern California with his party after great hardships. The last survivor of the party was Mn War ner, former owner of the Immense War ner ranch country in San Diego county, who died a few years ago at an advanc ed age. and it was from his lips that Mr. Guln obtained much of his information. Another interesting paper was that of Mr. Barrows on the Lugo Family, fol b / s< " nelnt<?r estingremlniscenscs of the family by descendants who were present. Mrs. Rose Hartwick Thorpe was pres ent and made a few remarks. Also the secretary of the Wyoming Historical so ciety, who spoke of the work of the so ciety in that state, and Mrs. Hughes of Los Angeles gave an account of the Plaza church in Los Angeles.
