San Diego, Cal., Dec. 14, 1887.
Ed. Sentinel: It may be that
many of your readers have the opin
ion that the writer had of this place
before lie visited it. Although he is
an “ old Californian,” yet until very
recently he thought San Diego was
composed of a few scattered houses on
pretty nearly the same number of
barren sand bills, as hot, during tire
Summer months, as Tophet; without
attraction—fit only, indeed, for the
habitation of centipedes, tarrantulas,
lizards and scorpions, and that the few
human beings who lived here only did
so because the force of circumstances
compelled them to do do, and who
would gladly leave were the means
offered by which they could get away.
If any of your readers do entertain
such ideas, I hope I may be enabled
to undeceive them, or what would lie
better, persuade them to do as the
writer did, undeceive themselves by a
Last Summer, for the first time, I
made a pilgrimage to this favored lo
cality, and so far from finding what I
had been led to expect, I found one of
the most delightful p aces I had ever
seen on the Pacific Coast, and my ac
quaintance was general with nearly
all the principal towns and cities from
Panama to Puget Sound. Instead of
heing what I had been led to think,
an open roadstead, I found a most
magnificent harbor, capable of bear
ing on its broad bosom thousands of
ships of the heaviest tonnage; instead
of being so hot that a lizard would
pant for fresh air, 1 found a climate as
delightful, as mild and balmy as the
far-famed shores of Italy or Southern
France; instead of a few scattered
houses on a few barren sand hills, I
found a city of thousands of inhabit
ants, teeming with the life and energy
of a new mining camp, and instead
of the few barren sand hills, one of
tho most beautiful sites for a town
that nature had ever provided for
man. and almost from any part of it
commanding a view of the mount
ains on the east, north and south, and
on the west the beautiful bay of San
Diego lying at its foot, while across
the bay, and tho peninsula forming it,
the majestic Pacific Ocean sweeping
oil' to the west, until lost in tho dim
horizon. Is it any wonder I was
Hus is one ol the oldest, yet one ot
the youngest towns on the Coast, an
assertion which may seem paradoxi
cal, yet is true. Old San Diego was
one of the earliest settlements of the
Spanish padres in California, and one
among the first places known to the
early American emigrants. It is situ
ated about four miles not tli or north
west of wliat is now the city of San
Diego, and is but sparsely populated,
hut is destined to become a lively sub
urb of the more populous and wealthy
city proper.
Twenty years ago last May A. E.
Horton, "for twenty-six cents an acre,
bought tlio land where thousands are
now congregated in all the baste and
bustle of business life, anil laid out
wliat is called “ Horton's Addition.”
That then became San Diego, and at
tracted what few immigrants there
were who sought this as a ulace of
residence. But for years it bad a very
sparse imputation, and led a hum
drum existence, being away out of the
world, only visited by an occasional
shin and having no communication
with the East, unless by long and te
dious overland journey, or by way of
Nui Francisco on the one hand or the
Isthmus on the other, if a traveler was
fortunate enough to find a ship to take
him north or south, as the case might
h°. Tlie streets were nearly deserted
snd but little business doing—eveii
two years ago, or but little more,
scarcely three vehicles at one time
were to bo seen on what is now the
principal street of the city. But the
Atchison, Topeka & .Santa Fe railroad,
with their keen outlook for business
facilities, saw the future imssibilitios of
the place and resolved to make it their
terminal point for the Pacific Coast.
Since then it has grown with a growth
that has scarcely a parallel, and has
now- a i>opuIation variously estimated
at from twenty to twenty-five thou
sand, and increasing so rapidly that
accommodations for incoming visitors
arc hardly to be had for love or money,
lents are now put up and used as tem
porary lodging-houses by those who
cannot find other quarters, and are
gladly taken as places to lay heads
weary with a search for better quar
ters. Tents are no uncommon thing,
you know, in a new mining camp, but
in a city having a population of this
iney look strange and out of place,
'filings here have an aspect of
newness,” owing to the recent tide
of prosperity which has set in so
strongly, which strikes a looker on
very forcibly. The streets are as vet
unpaved, and dust, save in a few: of
the principal ones which are sprinkled,
abounds, or in case of rain, muddy to
a most surprising and disgusting de
s.ee. But to get them in order will
be the next great work of the city au
thor ties. An extensive svste’m of
sewerage has just been completed,
which speaks well for the enterprise of
the town, and will tend to make it one
of the best drained cities in the world,
lying as it does with every advantage
for first-class drainage. The fire de
partment is volunteer, and like most
volunteer systems is characterized by
more zeal than discretion. Speaking
of fires, to-day was the first fire I have
seen in the city, and that could hardly
be called a fire, being checked in its
incipiency, and might have passed
unnoticed were it not for some of the
amusing incidents connected with it,
among which the most remarkable
and most amusing were the comments
and criticism of the lookers on at the
efforts of the department. Here you
would perhaps see a group of two or
three from Mud Springs—I believe
that is Judge “ Rufus’ ” old town, by
the way—and vou might hear such re
marks as: “Oh, look at that feller
gour up mat ladder! lie goes up like
the missin’ link climbin’ a pole. You
ought to see Nobbly Bob go up a lad
der. He could go up, you bet.” Here
perhaps another group’of two or three
from Snakyput in old Missouri, and
they would have their comments:
*• Why, whar’s the water ? Why don’t
they turn her on? If our old corn
p’ny, the Turnp’nsquirts, was here,
we’d had that fire out by this time.”
Here a third group, with an excited
Yankee telling the way they did it at
Squantum Neck when Deacon Gooze
ley’s three-story tavern “ was all
ablazin’, gol darn it.” While I
thought, if I didn’t say it, that if the
old Rescues and Hooks and Knicks
had been here we’d have knocked
“ h—ll’s bellB ” out of that fire before
they got on a stream.
And so it goes. We all think the
place we come from a little ahead of
all others, whether it is Mud Springs,
Snakyput, Squantum Neck or Char
coal Flat. I guess it’s better it should
be so.
There are quite a number from the
Sagebrush State here and many of
them from your town of Eureka,
among whom I might name W. .-V.
Douthett, wife and sou; W. S.- Jffc
Lellan and wife, D. E. Baily, C. G.
Hubbard and son Charley, W. M.
Blaine, and others, perhaps, if I
could think of them.
But you will think if I protract this
much longer I have had a bail attack
of “ cacoethes scribendi,” so I will
close, merely adding if you think there
is auvthing in all this which would in
terest your readers you may publish,
if not, consign it to the waste basket,
and in any event, yours truly.
A Story With a Moral.
The death of I. S. Kallocli recalls a
stormy period in San Francisco poli
tics. The time of the Kearney excite
ment, the new constitution struggle
and the election of 1879 was a most
eventful jieriod. Kallocli was one of
the most remarkable characters ever
known. He possessed great ability, a
fine presence, was a fluent speaker
and possessed the boundless po ■ er of
swaying men that makes a great
leader. Mr. Kalloch’s rapid rise to
]tower and to the influence lie pos
sessed over the city was equaled only
by his sudden extinction. If Mr.
Kallocli had boen iiossessed of politi
cal morality, his ability and his power
of swaying the people would have car
ried him to any office in the gift of San
Francisco. He used his office for his
own profit, and when his term ended
he dropped out of sight as completely
as though he had never been. He re
tired to an obscure position in Wash
ington Territory and dies in neglect.
He was an eloquent preacher, but the
close of his life is a more impressive
sermon than any he ever delivered
from the pulpit.—S. F. Fost.
Christmas Coining.
Tlio Herald says that everybody in
New York is on tiptoe trying to catch
the first glimpse of Christmas. The
shopkeei>ers are fairly driving us
crazy. They display their goods in
such tempting fashion and have im
ported from all parts of the globe so
many articles of use and ornament
that' we already feel the premonitions
of bankruptcy. All right. The Christ
mas holidays are always the pleas
antest of the year, and the delicious
uncertainty as"to the number of pres
ents you will receive and whether
you will receive any' at all—that is
what makes life worth living. The
ecstacy of finding on vour table just
what you have been hinting for dur
ing the last three months, and your
childlike expression of wonder that
anybody could dream that that was
just what you wanted above every
thing else—"these form the delights of
Christmas and prove that human na
ture is fearfully and wonderfully
’rime to Spink Ip.
Chicago News: “Gentlemen,"
said the Judge of an Arkansas court
to tlio attorneys during a trial. “ I
don’t mind your shooting at each
other occasionally if the circumstances
seem to justify it, but I see one of
your bullets has hit an overcoat be
longing to the Court and broke a
quart flask in the inside pocket. I
wish it to lie distinctly understood
that if there is any more such care
less shooting in this courtroom I’ll
lift the scalp of the galoot thatdoes it.
Now, go ahead with the case."
How (lie Governor of North Cor.
ollnn i'niuo to Observe that It
Whs a I.oug Time Between
A Washington letter to the Phila
delphia liecord says: "Assistant
Secretary of the Treasury Thompson
was formerly Governor of South Car
olina, and might, therefore, be sup
l>osed to know more or less about that
famous remark of the Governor of
North Carolinia. He said to me the
other day that it was marvelous how
far that remark had traveled. Dur
ing his long tour of inspection among
the lighthouses and life-saving stations
on the great lakes this Summer, he
heard of it in the most unexpected by
ways and places. ‘Why’ he con
tinued, ‘one day, Mr. Kimball (the
Superintendent of the Life-saving
Service) and I went ashore at a little
village to get shaved. We found a
barber-shop and two inquisitive bar
bers. The one who shaved me asked
questions aliout my journeyings until
he found out that I was from Wash
ington, and then he asked me whether
I had a place in any of the depart
ments. I told him I had, but did not
tell him what it was, and he did not
think it was well to pursue the sub
ject. He got through before the
other barber, and I told Kimball as I
surrendered my chair to an old
countryman, that I would wait for
him outside. No sooner had I gone
than my barber asked Kimball who I
was. “ That was Governor Thompson
of South Carolina,” he said, “ now
Assistant Secretary of the Treasury.”
With that the old farmer rose up in
his chair, all lathered as he was, and
said: ‘Do you suppose he would tell
me what it was the Governor of North
Carolina said to him? I asked Gov
ernor Thompson who those famous
Governors were and just what oc
cured at their meeting. He said he
did not know them by name and that
the story was old when he was born.
The tradition was that the Governor
of North Carolina, in the old days
when prohibition was not dreamed of,
journeyed on horseback, of course, to
make a formal call on the Governor
of South Carolina. The latter had a
jugful of liquor in the house at the
time, and for some inexplicable rea
son could get no more. When his
distinguished guest arrived he sat the
jug on the table and invited the Gov
ernor of North Carolina to make him
self at home. The guest drank
copiously, the host moderately, to
preserve at once his soberness and his
liquor. At last he saw with dismay
that his guest had drank the last drop
of the precious liquor. The guest was
too drunk to know it, but he missed
the familiar invitation of the host to
take another drink. So, leaning on
his elbows, he looked across the table
reproachfully with the melancholy re
mark : ‘Governor, it’s a long time be
tween drinks.’ ”

The OU1 Alan Who lleartl a Nong
Id the Night aod Thoaght of
In the quiet waiting room of the
Grand Trunk depot, in Lewiston, sat a
gray whiskered old fellow in a broad
brimmed hat. He had been studying
a time-table with some perplex
ity and had just laid it aside. A ques
tion from him, relative to the starting
of the trains for Oxford county, was in
troduction enough. His voice was
hoarse, but not unpleasant. His in
flection was odd. Being a Down
Easter, it was safe for the writer to
guess that the stranger was from the
“ From the West?”
" You bet,” was the reply.
“ Going to Oxford county?”
“ That’s where I’m going.”
Conversation was desultory until the
Westerner opened up.
Said he: “ Its thirty-two year since
I see the hills of Maine. I was raised
up in old Oxford county. I reckon I
ain’t thought o’ these hills since I was
a boy in copper-toed boots with a good
old daddy—too good, God bless him,
for nary such a youngster as I were.
I left home when I were 10 and went
out west, then I came back and went
to sea. I coasted eight years, and in
’55 went on a deep sea voyage and
brought up in California. I’ve been
there ever since. Have come back
“ Alone?”
Alone ? Yea, alone! That s the
bother of it, my boy. Nary a darned
soul there nor here, as I knows of,
that cares whether I get here or not—
a lonesome old man. Don’t you do it.
Take my word for it, it’s awful. For
thirty-five year nothing to think of but
work and dig and dive. No wife.
Never had none. No friends, except
boys in the diggin’s when I first went
there, and in town, where I’ve been
runnin’ a little business of my own for
the past eight years. Nothing ahead
of me for the past twenty year but
gettin’ rich. No letters from anybody
as I knows of. Nothing in my dreams
but money. Nothing else in the vis
ions of the mountain peaks, nothing
else in the changin’ surface of the Pa
cific whenever I caught a glimpse of
it. I’ve been a sordid, mean, low
lived skinflint part o’ the time, and a
roisterin’ liell-of-a-poor fellow the rest
of it. Lookin’ back, it makes a lump
in my throat, boy, it do, and 1 agree
that a wasted life istheawfullest thing
beneath the canopy of blue. It makes
me sick. I don’t like to think of it.
I like to talk, ye see, to keep away
from thinking of it.”
“ Going back to the old place?”
“ The old place? Eh! Yes, the old
place. Leastwise that’s what I reckon
on. What do you suppose made me?
lladen’t thought of home for forty
five years. Hadn’t been to church
any to speak of. It were only just a
song as did it. A little, old-fashioned
song that I heard in the evening three
months ago, 'bout a mother that
wanted to know where her wanderin’
boy was. It came up out o’ the night
way off there beyond the mountains
and I thought of my old mother, God
bless her, and of the old place. I
couldn’t sleep worth a cent that night.
I turned and twisted and sweat great
drops. I kept thinkin’ about home
and all I’d ever read or heard about
it. Seemed as though I could see the
old lady’s face looking into mine, with
eyes full of love, as good as she did
when I were a kid. I thought it over
for a day or two. Life didn't look half
so rosy out there. Fact is, I wanted to
go home, just home and nowhere else,
and you bet I started when I made up
my mind. I think I only kind o’ want
to see the grave of my mother and
fix up the family lot, you know, and,
do you kno.v, my boy, I been sort o’
holdin on to have a good cry (some
thing I ain’t known for thirty year),
and when I’m done with that and
when I've shied around and seen all I
want to of the old place, I’m goin’ to
Boston and see a brother of mine and
go back again beyond the Rockies and
die there with my face towards the
East. I could afford to do it, and I
ain’t the sort to be ashamed of it. Le’
me tell you one thing, though, all of
life and all its gold ain’t worth the
loss of your mother’s love. Put that
down to keep. For if you was me
you would be able to prove it, and
wouldn’t run any risk of being lured
away from it by any of the other
things of earth. It’s the best thing
the Lord gives us, and the last thing,
I’m thinkin’, He ought to take away.

Tribulations or au luveutur.
Tlie way of inventors without
means or supporters is not to be en
vied. Nothing can be done with an
invention in the present day unless
•the aspring genius who secures a
patent also engages the attention of
men with money. Great corporations
have to be approached, and as they
are not, as a rule, disused to espouse
the cause of every plausible device,
tlie man with a patent must demon
strate to the satisfaction of managers
that his ideas will stand the brunt of
actual service after emerging from the
experimental stage. The moral of
this is that an inventor, to be sucess
ful, must have sufficient ability to or
ganize a strong company comjiosed of
men whose names are a guarantee,
and then one corporation will protect
the other. This would have assured
tlie adoption of the Terry cable system
in this city. Without a big company
behind the patent to take care of it,
eastern capitalists who invested in the
bonds issued cn the new cable system
refused to look at it, and simply said:
“ If you want our money you must
tako a system that has been tried to
our satisfaction. We want no experi
ments involving our millions.” —

Not n UmiI Joke.
The churches have sent out a batch
of missionaries from San Francisco to
China. This is not a bad joke when
it is remembered that there are 30,000
of the yellow heathens right in San
Francisco, and an almost unlimited
number of white barbarians m<on
whom a little missionary work might
lie utilized to advantage. However,
this is about as near to being practical
as the reverend zealots ever get.—
