With this supply the pair startad ncross tho continent, trading "the goods to tho Indiana, until they roachod Ogden, where BrlglUm Young's brother purchased the 8toK they had loft. They then went lo Carson City, Novada, and, after stay of some length, continued thr journey to San Francisco. The Baldwin's first vonturo was the ? chaso of the Paalflo Temperanaa Houso, which he sold 30 days laVw at a profit of $5000. This money he Invested in a brick making plant, tad wae made government brick insppnt or, which' position notted him froui $1000 to $1400 a month. Lator ho ongaged In the livery business, dealing in real estate and mining stocks as a stldo line.

The big mines of the Comstock Lode, Crown Point, Consolidated Virginia, California, Ophlr, Savage, all contrlbnted to his wealth. Ho made $5,000,000 on Ophlr alone, and It wsb said that ho might have had $18,000,000 If he had boon willing to preclpltato a panic. Ono of his latest nchlovomonts In San Francisco was tho erection of tho Baldwin Hotel and thcatro, at Hlll-i, Market and Powell Btreets. Ovor 35 years ago Baldwin wns looking ovor Bomo mining proporty in Southern California, when bo saw what Is now tho Baldwin ranch. Some tlmo later ho purchased 10,000 acres nt $20 nh ncrb. When Santa Anita Park was sold to the Los Angeles Racing Association two years ago It brought $1000 an aero. Tho early dayc at tho ranch were exciting Squatters disputed nls rlht to It, and guns, knives "nnd chloroform flgurod In tho atetmpts to) drlvo him off. Thoro' was also iafcsults galore. Btut ho hold on, hav ing all tho tlmo tho vision or tho city Iter wnB to found. By Importing "Cholos" (Mexican laborers onto his ranch ho obtained enough population to obtain a char tor for hlo city, Arcadia. Then ho ex. ported most of tho cholos, and mado thta city tho homo of sport tho kind of sport whoroln one can tempt dame fortlino In moro ways than ono.

Tho Santa Anita or Bald win ranch, which now comprises 8000 acres, Is ofltlmatcd as bolng worth, with its many Improvomonts. more thfin $50,000,000. Thon thero are rich mining claims In Death Valloy; mining claims In AlaBka, an im mense ranch In Boar Valloy with 400,000,000 foot of tlmbor on the stump, 5000 acres at Lake Tahoo, with much more limber; a hotel at Lake Tahoo, and other property at various othor placos, Slnco 1878 Baldwin has been prom Incnt on tho turf. His first famous horse was Loxlngton, who became blind after winning a seven-mile race at Now Orleans In 19 minutes, 19 ft aeaonaa. Baldwin's henes also won tkA'darbJes in Kansas City and La- tonta In 1888; the American derby a. Chicago In 1888, and the same raci In 1S86; tho Chicago derby in 1885; the American derby In 1894, the Brooklyn doby In 1888, and many othor notable races'. Lucky Baldwin was twice married. His first wifo accompanied him across tho contlnont. Sho died sovcral years ago. Ills second vdfo Is now In Los Angolos, having Boparatod from him. Ho leavos two daughtors, Mrs. Hall McLaughroy, of San Francisco, and Mrs. Clara Harold, of Arcadia. His death will undoubtedly mark tho beginning of scores of lawsuit, no thore are many porsons who claim to havo an interest in his vast -tato, and havo boon waiting for years for an. opportunity to test the valid ity of their claims.
