Whon tho party left Now York thoy expect ed to reach Snn Francisco nbout tho latter part of July, not figuring, of course, on tho wrotcbod conditions they have met In somo places. Up to Clinton, Iowa, the roads were very flBo and tho first 1000 miles wero made in one wcok. After striking irilo Iowa, however, heavy black sjaiab roads were traveled over ronds that were Impassablo In somo places ns a rosult of tho heavy rnlns which washed out bridges and in fact resulted in such conditions that trav el was absolutely Impossible In somo piaces oven by railroad trains.
