From Southern California.
San Diego, California', April 18th, 1887.
Having in my former communica
tions given a general- description of the
climate, soil, prices of land and the
prospects for the future of Southern
California, I will this time give the rea
ders of the REVIEW the benefit of some
of mv observations during the past few
months. About two inches more rain
have* fallen near the coast during the
past week, while back in the interior
and the mountain region it has been at
least double that amount. Early in the
season most of the old Californians pre
dicted a dry season, the terror of Cali
fornia before the advent of railroads
when the state was dependent upon it
self, it meant a scarcity and high pric
es of all the products of the soil and
lack of water for the miner to wash his
gold. Since railroad communication
has been established with the east, the
effects of a season in which not rain
enough falls to mature the crops, falls
in the first instance and the hardest
upon the farmer, the gardner and the
fruit grower, who is not provided with,
artificial irrigation, and affects all
branches of trade more or less like in
any other county, but it would not now
create a famine, every necessary to sus
tain life can be shipped in here, but of
course at a considerable .advance in cost.
The dry weather prophets have come to
grief, we have new had rain enough
and may have more yet, to fully mature
all crops and furnish abundance of pas
ture for this year, which means good
profits to the farmer and a good supply
of farm products and fruit at a reason
able cost to the consumer. It will take
but a few more years for California to
make itself independent of an occassion
al dry year. The rainfall in the moun
tains is always considerable, from 30 to
40 inches annually, it naturally flows
down the rivers into the ocean and is
not needed in a wet season. The moun
tain gorges are admirably adapted for
constructing artificial lakes. This is
now bsing done all over the state it
takes money to build these' dams and
flumes to carry it where it is wanted
for irrigation and use in cities, but
capitalists seek paying investments and
the money is forthcoming. The San
Diego Flume Co. have in the last two
months, placed two hundred thousand
dollars more of their bonds, with which
to construct their flume proper, the
contracts for the entire work are let,
the immense dam is finished, it is 40
feet high and the basin above it covers
900 acres and will hold water enough
to supply San Diego with a population
of ten times its present number of in
habitants and irrigate fifty thousand
acres of farm land besides. Many
more such artificial lakes have been
and are being constructed, costing mil
lions of dollars, but the money invested
will bring good returns and convert the
deserts into green fields, fruit laden or
chards and make it the happy homes of
many thousands of human beings. I
can not close this article without refer
ring to the improvements in the harbor
and city of San Diego. The Coronada
Beach company have nearly finished
their new large wharf, which has been
mainly constructed for the Atchison
Topeca & Santa Fee railroad that com
pany now laying their track onto it,
so that they can run their cars along
side the ships and load and unload di
rect from one to the ether ere long
coffee from Central America and. Bra
zil, and tea and silk from China and Ja
pan will find its way east by this route.
The shipping in the harbor is increasing
rapidly, as San Diego is the main dis
tributing point, not only for a large
portion of southern California, but also
of nothern Mexico, Arizona and New
Mexico for all that comes in by way of
the ocean. The building improvements
of the city surpass the expectation of
everybody, large three, four and fire
story brick blocks have ceased to be a
novelty. The prices of real estate are
steadily advancing and the sales ran
well up into the millions. The Corona*
do Beach Co. hare sold on their penin
sula, across the bay from San Diego,
since last November, lots to the amount
of one million two hundred thousand
dollars and are spending all of it in
improvements. Fortunes have been
and are being made in real estate.
Some parties well known in St. Paul,
Minneapolis and New Ulm have .made
investments here on which they have,
and will make handsome profits. Judge
Newhart could sell his lots here now for
enough to buy a very good farm near
Mew Ulm with the profits, but he won*t
sell now, he has seen enough of San\
Diego to hold on. Freeman Smith of
St. Paul cleared five thousand on the.
sale of two lots recently. The city is
always fall of eastern capitalists, who
rn.VE WASHINGTON LETTER.
^L-t^Washington, April 20th 1887.
The past week as well as the present
one is replete with anniversaries which
the old residents of Washington can
never forget. Twenty-two years ago
last Friday morning Abi-aham Lincoln
died of the cruel wound inflicted by
John Wilkes Booth at. Ford's Theatre.
The sensation produced by the assassi
nation of the great War President
thrilled the Capital like the tremor of
an earthquake.
The whole country quivered with the
shock. There has never been nor has
there beenn here since such such a per
iod of horror, indignation, and appre
hension. It was even feared that the
tragedy might temporarily undo the
work that had just been achieved and
again unsettle the foundations of the
public peace. Every one was fright
ened, every one was regarded with sus
picion. Neighbors, yes, even old
friends eyed each other askance, while
arrests were so plentiful as to justify
and prolong the incense excitement.
The belief that the handsome, hot
blooded young actor was but the chosen
instrument of a well formed"conspiracy
in which many men of note were con
cerned, made people afraid of members
of their own family. Martial law prac
tically prevailed, and it was well nigh
impossible to pass the city limits. No
man was without suspicion,, and it
seemed as if chaos itself had control.
Never was a nation more torn by ex
citement, or more sorely tried, and then
the ether attempted assassination, and
the wild cry for vengeancebut it is an
old, old story.
Ityg^jJ ifhe final baptism of the Union
&piood, and although the great war
^ent out in tears, it left behind it more
indestructible than ever, all glorious
without and within, the principles, of
constitutional liberty, equality and fra
ternity, for which Lincoln, yielding the
best years of his life, yielded life itself
at last.
To-day the' streets of the city have
been filled with colored people and th/
music of Drass bands. It 1$ the twenty
fifth anniversary of the emancipation of
slaves in the District of Columbia, and
it has been celebrated with a street pa
rade and other excersis.es. The cele
bration was one of the largest of the
kind which has ever taken place here,
and there were about 10,000 people in
the procession. Its line of march was
through the White House grounds, and
the President reviewed it, standing on
the front portico of the Mansion
The Senatorial Select Committee,
which is investigating the workings of
the Executive Departments here, and
trying to probe their methods, has un
dertaken a gigautic task. When its
final report is made, however, tiie re
sult of its labors will doubtless be inter
esting and abound in a kind of informa
tion which is now a sealed book to the
public. The committee has an excel
lent opportunity to find out for the ben
efit of the public also whether Civil Ser
vice Reform is really all that its /riends
claim, or whether it is a fraud as argued
by its opponents. I- ^j'K
The Sund: laws" are agitating very
much the Citizens of the Capital this
week. A larr portion of the commu
nity is fearful \est it shall have to fast
on the Sabbat n-or else change its mode
of living. Washington used to be
called a city of boarding houses, but of
late years has been dubbed the city of
eating houses.. The reason Of this is
that hundreds of Government Clerks
have found it cheaper to rent rooms
and "take meals out" than to keep
house, and as a consequence a num
ber of eating houses have sprung up
and done a very profitable busiuess.
The triumvirate commisiou which gov
erns the District has sent forth the edict
that not only drinking saloons and pla
ces of business shall be closed on Sun
day but also that milk and ice wagons
shall not run, and that eating houses
shall shut up. If this last provision is
enforced it will cause great inconven
ience to thousands of persons, who reg
ularly take their meals at these places
and will cause the failure in business of
these enterprising men who are willing
to cater to the palate for the handsome
returns received.
It seems a pretty big fish story, but
still none the less true, that over 600,
000 herring hare been brought from the
Potomac into Washington the present
week. This is the largest number re
ceived for years past and is due to the
stringent laws prohibiting the drawing
of seines for fish during the spawning
season. A few years ago the number
of herring caught became so small that
epicures began to fear that the delicacy
of "Potomac Herring" would be a
thing of the past. Th* Fish Commi
ssion however had salutary laws enac
ted, and the 600,000 herring a week is
the result.
Tbo President had a tender heart this
week and so granted eight pardons to
persons convicted and imprisoned for
embezzleing from the mails breaking
into Post Offices robbing the mails on
the highways counterfeiting, and oth
er crimes. Cleveland has granted
more pardons than any President before
him within the memory of man.
