SANTA CEUZ. Cal., May 24.— Among
the many sea-kissed counties along the
800 miles of shore line of wondrous Califor
nia there is none more fair to look upon
than Santa Cruz. Santa Cruz has fifty
miles of shore, made up of long sandy
beaches, calm bays, where pleasure and
fishing boats glide, busy wharves, where
passenger and freight vessels touch, and
picturesque rock-bound points, where the
sea tosses and foams forever.
Back from the shore, past the grazing
cattle ranges and fertile valleys, is the
Santa Cruz Mountains, out from which
rises flat-topped Ben Lomond and dark,
shadowy Loma Prieta, the latter rising
4000 feet above the sea. These mountains,
clothed with giant redwoods, red-trunked
madrona, elder and laurel, whisper secrets
of the long ago to all who will listen. They
tell of the early Spanish days when the
padres established their missions adja
cent to the historic and lovely bay
of Monterey; of the happy, prosper
ous, romantic days, when the Spanish
ravaliers cantered over the plateaus. They
tell how the roses of Castile found bloom
ing in this far-away land by the "Western
pea bound the hearts of these Spanish peo
ple, as with rivets of steel, to this, the
country of their adoption. Only an adobe
house here and there, and remnants of the
fast-decaying missions, which are almost
entirely buried in the tangled ivy vines, is
left to remind us of this Spanish civiliza
Great plan ing-m ills are located in the
forests, cutting millions of feet of lumber
each year. Numerous lime-rock quarries
and kilns are being worked in the hills a
few miles back of Santa Cruz, the metrop
olis of this locality, which is located at the
mouth of the San Lorenzo River, on the
site of the mission established here in 1791.
Bitumen mines are being extensively de
veloped within a few miles- of the city.
Tons upon tons of this dark, plastic, dura
ble and most perfect of street-paving ma
terials (when placed on a well-made foun
dation) are being hauled to the Santa Cruz
wharf each day for shipment.
Some of the largest and best-equipped
dairies in the State are found alone; the
coast north of Santa Cruz, /where 50,000
acres are devoted to dairying and pasture.
The plow has found its way up the steep
hillsides. Fine vineyards are seen where
a few years ago all was a dark, woody tan
gle. Apples, apricots and particularly
prunes are being most successfully culti
vated on the foothills of this vicinity.
Very 'fine clay beds suitable for making the
finest of terra-cotta ware have been located,
but as yet have not been developed. In
this hum of industry the whispered secrets
of the old Spanish days are hard to catch.
But it is of the living present and future
possibilities of this little city of Santa Cruz
that the busy people of to-day are inter
ested. -.
Just now all eyes are turned with more
than usual interest on this city of 9000 in
habitants, which is preparing to give a
Venetian water carnival and floral display
more gorgeous than anything yet at
tempted in this country. The Los Angeles
fiesta is expected to fade into nothingness
when the dreams and plans of the Santa
Cruzans become a reality in the glad flower
laden days of June.
The natural beauties and attractions of
this seaside resort are well and widely
known. Men of wealth, with the world to
choose from, have built their homes on the
terraced hillsides of Santa Cruz overlook
ing the bay of Monterey. Golden Gate
Villa, the summer home of Major F. Mc-
Laughlin, the handsome, genial mining
man of Oroville, located on a high ter
raced point, with a wide and commanding
view of mountain, valley and sea, is one of
the most beautiful places in all Caiifornia.
The architecture is imposing, yet restful.
The many porches and open balcony tow
ers suggest the possibilities of happy hours
in the open air, surrounded by flowers,
palms and vines, which are here in profu
sion. The interior of lovely Golden Gate
Villa is superb in artistic finish and
furnishings. Here great wealth has gone
hand in hand with exquisite taste, and the
result is beyond compare.
Immediately adjoining Major McLaugh
lin's is the handsome home of ex-Mayor
Bowman. Around the hill, a trifle nearer
the sea, is charming Sunshine Villa, the
residence of J. Philip Smith, who is an en
thusiast over the beauties of scenery and
climate around this crescent bay of Mon
terey. Mr. Smilh, who has lived in all the
gay capitals of Europe and visited the
leading pleasure resorts of the world, has
chosen Santa Cruz as the one spot above
all others.
It is not far from the beautiful grounds;
of Sunshine Villa to the Sea Beach Hotel,
which is on a high bluff overlooking the
harbor. This airy place, with its wide
porches, surrounded by a veritable thicket
of flowers and vines, is only a few steps
from the surf- bathing point on the beach,
where merry bathers make the summer
morning hours a time of healthful revelry.
The rose garden surrounding the tennis
court in the rear of the hotel is a delight
ful spot. The Sea Beach is known far and
wide through the strong ana pleasant per
sonality of the host, John T. Sullivan.
Ocean View terrace ha's a number of
pretty residences. "Villa Perla," the resi
dence of Fred W. Swanton, manager of the
Electric Light and Power Company, is the
most notable. It is a lovely modern house,
with most perfect interior finishing and
appointments. This home is an appro
priate setting for the lovely iittle daughter,
Pearl, and her fair, gracious mother.
Ivy Lodge, the pretty residence and ex
tensive ornamental grounds of twelve acres
which was the home of the late Judge Mc-
Cann, is a typical California home, located
just three blocks from Pacific avenue, the
main street of Santa Cruz. Mrs. Lucy N.
McCann, widow of Judge McCann, lives
with her children here. Mrs. McCann,
who is a lawyer admitted to practice before
the Superior Court, is one of the best
known women of the State. Aside from
her work in the active practice of law she
is a speaker and writer of versatile abil
Mrs. McCann is one of the most enter
prising citizens of Santa Cruz. The first
thought in relation to the great water
carnival now in prospect originated in her
active brain, and as president of the ladies'
auxiliary she is furnishing much of the en
thusiasm and force which is bringing that
first thought into material shape. Colonel
A. J. Hinds, Judge Logan, Thomas J.
Weeks, D. Wi Grover, R. Benheim and
Duncan McPherson, editor of the Sentinel,
have notably beautiful homes.
The suburban locality adjacent to the
"cliff drive," which circles around the
rugged shore of Bay Point along the ocean
beach, is one of the choice spots of the
world. This beautiful drive with its in
describable views, which will some day
rival the famous Continental and Eastern
beach drives, belongs to the city of Santa
Cruz. It is kept in good condition at
present, but the day is coming when a
boulevard will lead from the heart of the
town to this skirting driveway, which will
be made into a broad bituminous surface,
bordered with smooth grass, embroidered
by landscape gardening and broken by
footpaths and park benches. In- that com
ing time all about Phelan Park -the lovely
grove in which the Phelan family of Ban
Francisco have built their summer homes —
and in the vicinity of James McNeil's at
tractive home, will be the most popular
part of Santa Cruz to those who love 'old
ocean." Owing to the general depression
through which the entire country has
been passing building sites in this suburb
are held at a ridiculously low figure, con
sidering their value as city residence prop
erty. The Christian Church colony (Gar
field Park), surrounding the Pacific 81ope
Convention Hall, which will seat 5000 peo
ple, has also been standing still so far as im
provements are concerned, but every sum
mer this park is thickly dotted with tents
when the Christian Church of the Pacific
Slope hold their annual convention.
Just one year ago Santa Cruz met with
a frightful loss by fire. The Courthouse
and about fifty buildings lay in ashes. To
day the burnt district is covered with mod
ern buildings more substantial and impos
ing in every way than those which disap
peared at that time. The Santa Cruz
County Bank building, constructed of
rough brownstone, is a gem. The A. P.
: Hotaling building, comprising the well ap
| pointed Pixley Hotel and fine Public
I Library rooms, is a brick structure with
103 feet frontage on Pacific avenue.
Designs for a new courthouse, drawn by
j N. A. Comstock of San Francisco, have
! been accepted by the Supervisors, and the
I active work of construction will soon be
j commenced. The building will be in the
Romanesque style, of buff brick, gray sand
stone and terra cotta, with tile roof. The
j main entrance steps and interior stairways
j will be of marble. The main entrance will
i be beneath a graceful arch, from which
will arise a massive Roman tower.
The courthouse site is the nSost centrally
j located corner in the business section of
Santa Cruz. The building and improving
spirit became infectious, and the entire
business portion of the city show marks of
extension and renovation. The well-known
J Pacific Ocean House has an entire story
| added, also much interior change and im
! provement. John R. Chace, the proprie-
I tor, is one of the most energetic of men,
j always ready to put his shoulder to the
! wheel in any scheme which promises to
| advance the interests of his beloved Santa
; Cruz.
Fishing is the favorite sport, particularly
I when the Alaska salmon comes into the
I waters of the bay during June, July and
I August. Mr. Chace is an eager, enthusias-
tic and successful fisherman, who wishes
all the world could enjoy the excitement
of having a forty-two-pound fighting
Alaska salmon at the end of 300 feet of
small line.
Santa Cruz was the first city in the State
to own its own water works system. In
order to do so bonds to a large amount
were issued, but this debt is evened up to
the citizens by the extremely low rates
I paid for pure, naturally filtered water
which comes from the mountain tops. To
a San Franciscan the figures are absurdly
low. For a house of four rooms 50 cents.
For each individual room 10 cents. For
use of one horse of cow 10 cents, including
water for vehicles and other stable use.
For each additional horse or cow 5 cents.
For irrigation in excess of 130 square yards
to each premises one-eighth of one cent.
These figures are the monthly rate, and
should be a source of satisfaction. The
rapid descent of the water from the moun
tains gives a very heavy pressure for fire
extinguishing purposes.
Santa Cruz has the most important of all
! improvements, a very complete system of
j sewerage. This was the first city on the
■ Pacific Coast outside of San Francisco, to
j introduce the electric arc light system un
der municipal ownership. Incandescent
electric lights are in general use here for
house illumination. The electric light
and power company also own the gas
works, and are about to introduce here a
new process for the production of electric
ity and power. Gas engines have been used
very successfully in Europe for the running
of electric plants. Manager Swanton has
determined to be in this forward move
ment, so has ordered two gas engines of
enormous horsepower from an Eastern
firm, which will be placed in running
order in about thirty days under a strong
guarantee that they will accomplish every
thing that is promised. The output of the
gas plant will be increased to such an ex
tent that the company will be enabled to
make the gas cheaper, and can furnish it
to consumers for light and heat at a very
low rate, as there will be no waste, as all
surplus gas will be used to supply the gas
engines, which will produce the electricity.
j The expenses of the company will be so
reduced that it is expected the citizens will
reap the benefit in cheaper rates and more
excellent service. Santa Cruz will be the
first city on the coast to inaugurate the new
. process, the result of which will be watched
with interest. This was also the first city
of equal population in the State to con
struct an electric streetcar system.
The financial status of the community is
good, judging from the reports of the dif
ferent banks which have passed through the
season of "hard times" without having to
foreclose any mortgages and have paid in
terest on deposits and paid dividends as
usual. The Santa Cruz Bank of Savings
and Loan, which has been organized
twenty-five years, has for its officers Wil
liam T. Jeter, president; P. B. Fagen,
vice-president; F. G. Menefer, cashier;
Directors— B. F. Porter, William T. Jeter,
P. B. Fagen, R. Thompson, Frank O'lSeil,
F. W. Ely and 8. F. Grover. The Bank of
Santa Crua Company, under the same
management, was organized five years
later. They are now in their elegant new
building, with modern safety deposit de
partment attached. The City Bank and
City Savings Bank is under the same
management. President. L. K.Baldwin;
vice-president, F. A. Hihn; cashier, If. D.
Haslem. This substantial institution has
the same cheerful report to make. The
People's Bank, organized three years ago,
with a capital stock of $200,000, have
money lying in their vaults to loan at
reasonable terms on good city and country
property. The People's Bank officers are:
President, Henry Willey; vice-president,
William Renuife; cashier, A. A. Morley;
Directors— A. P. Hotaling, John T. Sulli
van, Henry Willey, William Rennie, Dun
can McPherson, William Ely, D. C. Clark.
The largest interests of this locality of
the county are held by the F. A. Hihn
Company, who own about 15,000 acres of
land, 2000 acres of which are covered with
a magnificent redwood forest. They em
ploy hundreds of men at their different
planing-mills and lumber camps, from
which they ship millions of feet of redwood
and pine lumber each year. The largest
interest of this company is in real estate.
Farm property lying on foothill and in
valley and suburban residence property
around Santa Cruz, Capitola and Aptos is
sold by this company on such unique terms
that it is worthy of mention, as this firm
has been the means of adding many indus
trious people to the population of Santa
Cruz County. The unique clause in the
deeds of this company is that after one
tenth of the purchase price is paid if the
purchaser should die the Hihn Company
bind themselves to make a deed of the
property without further cost to the heirs
of the deceased. This is rather after the
life insurance plan and has been taken
advantage of by quite a large number dur
ing the last two years.
The little suburb of Capitola, with its
good bathing beach and fishing, five miles
east of Santa Cruz on the bay of Monterey,
is becoming quite a summer resort. Many
cottages have been built and the fine new
Hotel Capitola, built right on the water's
edge, and the large new bathhouse will
make this charming nook of the bay a
favored resort, , particularly when the
lovely drives along the Soquel Creek Can
yon to the Sulphur Springs are considered.
Santa Cruz County abounJs in irood
mountain roads, which are sprinkled dur
ing the long rainless summer. The ro
mantic drive through Sycamore Valley up
through the canyon, along the rapid mur
muring San Lorenzo, with wild roses
among the bramble bushes, where the eun
glints through, and a great variety of ferns
and shade-loving plants abound, climbing
vines wreathing and interlacing the
trunks and branches of the trees and
swinging across the road from tree to tree
in graceful festoons to the grove of the
kingly sequoia is beautiful beyond de
scription. Oh, the rest of all this vine
tangle ! Tourists from all over the world
have taken this drive to the Santa Cruz
big trees, which is enhanced by the breath
of the salt sea sifting through the open
in ers.
The extremely practical is found in this
San Lorenzo Canyon, about three miles
from Santa Cruz, where the California
Powder-mill, second largest in the United
States, is located. Since 1865 this mill has
been running under the management of
Bernard Peyton. Black, brown, giant and
smokeless powder in great quantities is the
output of this mill, which employs ninety
five men. W. C. Peyton, son of Bernard
Peyton, has made a success of smokeless
powder, and during the past two years the
smokeless powder from the California mill
has been the only powder accepted by the
United States Government. The process
of combining being the secret of success,
Mr. Peyton will likely hold a monopoly
over this branch of the powder trade.
Segregation being absolutely necessary,
the powder-mill plant, which is valued at
$600,000, is scattered about among the trees
in this secluded spot, which is considered
an ideal place for such a line of manufac
ture. The large kilns, where the alder,
willow and madrona wood after years of
seasoning is made into charcoal for gun
powder, is here. Great heaps of jet black,
velvety lumps of charcoal lie in the
grinding-room. These huge grinding
machines, like mammoth coffee-mills,
grind the charcoal, sulphur and salt
peter. Then these powder ingredients
are sent to the wheelmills, for the
all-important incorporating stage of
powder-making. The grade of the
powder depends on the length of time it is
left under these wheels, each of which
weighs seven and a half tons. A $30,000 mill
is being put in at the present time for the
making of brown powder prisms for 6
and 8 inch guns. The highest standard so
far reached in the making of these powder
prisms has been by the Germans, but the
California company expects to reach the
German standard when their new mill is
In the same locality is found the Kron
Tanning Company, a most extensive,
well-managed plant, the output of which
is excellent sole leather.
The hills back of Santa Cruz are seamed
with limestone. Henry Cowell & Co. and
I. L. Thurber have the largest quarries.
Cowel & Co. have large kilns and warehouse
at the Santa Cruz wharf. The Grover-
Cunningham Mill and Lumber Company
have large planing-mills at Soquel,
Laguna and Boulder Creek, where they
employ a large force of men. They make
heavy shipments of telephone, telegraph
and pile timber. Their extensive yards
are near the Southern Pacific depot,
Santa Cruz. The lumber, lime, bitumen
and powder make heavy freight ship
ment from this point, much of which is
done by water.
The natural competition provided by the
ocean keeps the freight rates down to a
reasonable figure in all lines. The wages
paid at the powder-mill, tanneries, lime
quarries, bitumen beds and different lum
ber camps pour into the channels of trade
in Santa Cruz. The well-appointed, heav
ily stocked stores are able to sell at prices
on a par with San Francisco. Among the
leading merchants are J. Strauss of tne
Arcade, A. C. Snyder, J. Benheim & Co.,
Leask & Johnson, Nassendorf & Staffler
and E. H. Garrett.
Some of the finest work in the line of
photography on the coast is done in the
gallery of McKeau & Ort here at Santa
Cruz. The lights, shadows and finishing
are perfect. Their results in the platinum
process are wonderfully artistic. F. Thomp
son, the leading florist and nurseryman,
has discovered some extensive bed* of peat
(decomposed lycopodium) in the moun
tains near here. This peat is of great
value in fern and palm culture. Mr.
! Thompson has secured the control of this
deposit, and has shipped it quite exten
sively, receiving $10 per ton for all yet sent
to the villa residences around San Mateo
and to Golden Gate Park.
Santa Cruz has most excellent hotels,
particularly well equipped livery-stables
and prime fruit, vegetable and meat mar
kets. The vineyards and wineries of the
Santa Cruz Mountains produce some of the
best dry wines in the world. The Santa
Cruz Mountain Wine Company, whose
three-tunneled wine cave is so widely
known, is located in the immediate sub
urbs of the city. All their wine is kept in
this cool even-tempered place until prop
erly aged.
The largest dairy in this county, noted
for that line of business, is also located in
the immediate vicinity of Santa Cruz, on
the coast road. D. D. Wilder here owns
2300 acres in the foothills, over which the
300 cows belonging to the dairy roam. Mr.
Wilder has two cream-separators, acting
on the centrifugal principle, making 7500
revolutions per minute. The milk is put
in these separators as soon as it comes
from the cow, and the sweet product of
this commands the highest price in the
San Francisco markets.
During the present year Santa Cruz has
expended $15,000 in new school buildings.
The High-school building is the just pride
of the city. It is built after good archi
tectural designs as to light, heating and
ventilation and the interior has every
modern convenience and equipment. Tne
Board of Trustees, under whom so much
money has been nicely expended, are: O.
J. Lincoln, Hon. Bart Burke and Dr. P. B.
Fagan. Professor D. C. Clark, who has
been principal of the schools of Santa
Cruz for eleven years, is an able leader for
the forty teachers in charge of the differ
ent departments.
A free public kindergarten is maintained
out of the school fund in connection with
the regular school work. County Superin
tendent of Public Schools J. N. Linscott
"The most approved methods of instruc
tion are employed in the Santa Cruz
schools. Our pupil 3 are admitted to the
great universities of the State without ex
All the different religious denominations
are represented here and a very large
amount of money is invested in church
property. The Congregationalists and
Catholics have notably attractive edifices.
The Y. M. C. A. have a very substantial
building of their own. Liberal branches
of thought, Unitarians, Spiritualists and
Theosophists, have organizations also.
The Public Library and reading-room is
the best in the State, considering the num
ber of population. The trustees, Dr. C. L.
Anderson, Professor D. C. Clark, Dr. F. W.
Bliss, Ed L. Williams and J. W. Linscolt,
are enthusiastic workers in the interest of
this institution. The library has light,
airy, convenient quarters in the new Ho
taling block, which were designed espe
cially for the purpose. Miss Waterman, the
intelligent, kindly librarian, has every-
thing arranged with extreme neatness and
taste. They have 10,000 books, to which
patrons have access. Miss Waterman de
clares in i'avor of this method of manage
ment, as the people read better books since
they have the privilege of looking them
over before choosing. All the leading
magazines and papers are on the reading
tables. The library is surely a credit, and
should be the pride of all Santa Cruz.
Santa Cruz now has four daily and three
weekly newspapers, which are a great fac
tor in the life of the community. All are
working in harmony for the coming carni
val and for the upbuilding of this charm
ing locality, which will some day be to
San Francisco what Newport is to New
The coast road will sooner or later be
built, whick will make a short scenic jour

spot on the placid bay of Monterey.
Attempt of Mexican Rurales to
Expel Miners to Be Met
by Force.
American Workmen Prepare for
Resistance and Trouble Is Likely
to Occur.
SAN DIEGO, Cal., May 24.— Trouble is
brewing at the Mexican mining camp of
Juarez, some miles below Campo. Miners
arriving at Campo say that the authorities
at Ensenada sent word to Juarez that the
Mexican Government believed miners at
that camp were not making proper and
complete returns of the gold being taken
out, and that continued evasions of the ex
port duty on both quartz and placer gold
would no longer be tolerated. It was de
cided to exact a purchase of the land being
worked for gold, and if the miners refused
to buy the land at the rate of $250 per acre
an armed force would be sent to collect it
or drive them out. In fact the Rurales
accompanied the notification, ready to en
force orders.
As the price was considered exorbitant
the miDers left rapidly, and only a few are
left who are not yet decided whether to
pay the price or fight. Those remaining
are Americans and it is said they will rely
on their proximity to the United States to
act rather independently. They assert
they have taken claims in compliance with
the law and do not propose to give them
up. On the other hand the Rurales stand
ready to shoot and trouble is expected.
The true test of a baking powder is well
known to every housekeeper. It is to try
it in making bread, cake, etc. , and we are
of the opinion that it will be impossible to
remove from the minds of our housewives
the conviction long ago formed from the
application of this practical test, that the
Royal does make the best, the most, and
the most wholesome.
