last evening the bond-nollors returned
from the east , arriving over the 0. 13. &
( J. nbout 7 o'clock. Alderman Mynstcr ,
John Jay Frainoy , Win. Patton and
others of the apodal admirers of "tho
Carter Harrieon of the Missouri slope , "
as they delight to nail the little mayor ,
arranged a reception for him at the
depot. The band was there ready to
play "Return , Yo Wanderers , Return. "
"When Vaughany ComcaMarchinglloino

aide : ) the throe named there were Alder
man Keating , C. Wealcy , Aldorinan
Goiao , Mr. Lindor , Thomas Millott , Cap.
Russell , Pete Drury , Jlonry Wagner ,
( leorgo Smith and Jerry Myers.
On the arrival of the train the band
struck up with "Sweol are thoBonds that
Join , " etc. , while a hearty informal
hand shaky greeted the mayor , the city
treasurer , and Mr. Rsagan. These gen
tlemen were escorted to the carriage in
waiting and the procession started up
Main street headed by the band. There
wore two crrriagos and nine buggies in
the lino. Tlio distinguished re
turned onca. wont dirrrtly to their
ronidonccB , Mayor VUUR ! n britlly otated
to Tun Km : man that all the bonds that
it was necessary at present to cell , had
been disposed of except § 35,000 , for
which they already had an oiler. It IB
understood that at an early date a
mnaa meeting will bo ar
ranged for at which Mayor
Yaughan will explain to the dear , but
impatient , faultfinding people , just what
ho has done , and whyjio haa done it , and
will then have an opportunity to got
sweet revenge on those who have said
unsavory things of him during hia mis
sion to tlio east.
Mr. Reagan now that ho haa returned
homo will push the work of paving to
completion as rapidly as possible.
Enough of the bonds have been sold to
pay for the paving done on Main street ,
and to pay for paving Broadway down to
the Opera houso. Mayor Vatighan saya
it will not bo necessary to sell the balance -
anco of the bonds for thirty days or so ,
yet , and as the market is growing bettor
every day it la doomed best to wait.
The paving bonda not yet sold amount to
§ 55,000. Xono of the sewerage bonds
have yet been disposed of.
After reaching homo , the Mayor was
called upon by a number of his neigh-
bora and friends , to whom ho made a
short speech.

San rrnnclwo conf v n ! enc" "f the StOne
Ono of the I'ccullatittes ol
this coast is the strangr
mingling of all nationalities to bo found
hero and the breaking down of race pre
judices. About tlio only instance of race
hatred Is that of the Caucasian toward
the Chinese , and this is duo mainly ti
dill'erenccs which ngos could never voeon
cilo. This tendency of all nationalities
to drift out to this coast in iiucst of for
tune has resulted in bringing here manj
dccendeuts of famous men. Some
wotthily uphold the historical fami
ly name , but the greater part are reno
gntles who seek , in the western country ,
to.uacapo from the restraints which soolo
ty and civilization impose in older settled
lands. Many of those men have had remarkable
markablo careers , which could bo paral
lolcd nowhere outside of thia country o
sudden vicissitudes in fortune. Ono o
the strangest of thcso careers is that o
the son of the famous Senator Brcckln-
ridge , of Kentucky , who is now living ii
this stnto , who was chosen at the laat
election as n member of the state assom-
blyand who formed the most conspicuous
figure in the California delegation to the
recent democratic national convention a
a oung Brcckonridgo came out to this
atato years nco. Ho received a
warm welcome from the southern colony ,
which is otrong and socially influential in
this city. The Groins , Tm-iscs , Haggins ,
Thorntons , McAllisters , and other lights
of the "chivalry" society received him
with open arms. Ho was n lino-looking
man of the southern typo -tall , slender ,
graceful , with the face and carriage ol
his famous father , and , as the events
have proved , with much of that fathor'a
cast of thought and temperament. Ho
had studied law , na so many well-born
southern men dp , not so much for the
purpose of engaging actively in the prac
tice of the profession aa a good prepara
tion for the career of politics , which ia
just aa much the ambition of young
southern men now na _ It wvs before tin
war. Broekonridgo , _ with the prestige o !
his name and with hia ohiny personal at-
tractiono , enjoyed a Ray life here ii
fashionable society. Ho became engaged
to ono of the daughters of Lloyd Tevis
the brains and executive head of
express firm ot Wells , Fargo & Co
Tovis , ono of whoso nephews
recently committed suicide In St.
Louis is n millionaire who has made his
money unaided except by abilities of n
very high order. There is no nhrcwdor
man nt a bargain on this coast. In con
nection with J.IB. Haggin , anothorjvon
tuckiaurho counts his wealth by the
millions , Tovia has bought up whole
Eqiiaro miles of laud in Kern , Tunaro nnc
Fresno counties , getting it for a more
nominal sum under the dcaort land act.
The land ia good grazing and farming
land if properly irrigated , just like that
in Colorado and Wyoming , which has
been Eoiacdjup in precisely the oamo way
by big land grabbers and speculators. In
this way IJaggin and Tevis have succeed
ed in getting hold of about ono fifth ol
the laud hi this state , and their herds ol
cattle literally feed on a thousand hills.
They have tried all kinds of experiments
in agriculture and irrigation ; they have
bulldozed all the small settlers in the
neighborhood of their vast domains ; they
are na much lords of the countlcn in
which they have secured so great a foot-
dold as were the mediaeval barons ol
It was into ihis family of largo wealth ,
and the influoncis which wealth brings
with it , that Breckinridgo ontorod. Ilo
was abundantly supplied with money ,
and ho had the Kcntuckian's passion for
cards and horseflesh which Is capable of
Dotting away with an unlimited amount
of coin. Ilo went down on some of the
paternal stock ranches in Freano county
ind led the life ot a wealthy southern
planter in the olden timo. Ilo lived a
Free life , became a great favorite with the
men among whom ho mingled , plunged
inoro and moro into disipation and debt ,
until finally his wife returned to her
liomo , in thia city , and a suit for divorce
was soon afterward begun in a quiet way.
The grounds alleged wcro cruelty and in-
temperance. Koanawcrwas made , and ,
Mrs. Brockenridgo , still a young and
very pretty woman , obtained her leijul
liberty. The husband remained about
Froann , nnd ono day when ono of hia
cowboy friends was arrested for oonio in-
[ ringomcnt of the law , Breckenridgo
volunteered to defend him. The knowl
edge of law and the natural eloquence
which ho nliowcd in the little country
court-room made hia reputation among
the hiwlosa comunity. lie secured the
ncquittal of his client , and from that
imo on if any fcstivo cowboy got int"
trouble ho Eteorcd straight for lireckon-
ridgo'a ollico , hia fame aa a lawyer nnd
> ublic speaker became noined throughout
ho country ; the moral foibloa which ho
lad botrnjcd , and which might have
damaged him in n moro otrail-laccd
comunity , rather tendered to help him
lore among men whoso cede of morals
van vury like thoao of Bret Uarto's
So the DOII of n famous father became

trictly anti-monopoly isauo , which win

neat of them it meant nothing moro

ind they joined hands with the railroad
sompany to defeat any legislation aimed
it the abolition of fruight contracts , dis
crimination in pasHcngor and freight
rates , and the evasion of state taxes. But
ivilh Brockinridgo his oxtrutno anti-mono-
lopoly doctrines were evidently n mental
cgacy from hia father. The man with
whom the southern wing of the dcmocra-
: y tried to overthrow Douirlna , and with
vhom they counted on crushing Lincoln ,

Young Beockcnridgo has recently come
nto notoriety owing to the marriage of
il divorced wife to Fred Sharon , the
nly ton of the ox-Hunator from Nuvada ,

com that young Sharon has long been
immured of thu beauty and accomplish-
neats of Mrs. Breckonridgo. Ilia utton-
tMiis tu her having reai'ir.l fhi ear t
her late husVnnd lie swuro a mighty ontl
that ho uould kill any man that had tin

result was that Sharon was private ! )

Will you kindly lot an Indian agent
apeak for himself t The following ia from
Major John O. Onsmann , in cWgo at
Crow Crook and Lower Brulo , Dakota , of
ever 2,000 Sioux. Speaking of this tor-
mer place ho says :
The school accommodations of this
ngency nro entirely inadequate , there
Doing room provided for only Jiti children
whereas there are hero , at present 1 10 of
school a o. The hope uf tlio Indians is
in the schools ; wo may induce the old
people to work on their claims , build
houses and stables , nnd tnko care of their
cattle. Thia ia nbout all. But their
children will bo what wo shall make
them. 1 nm nwaro thnt gront nnd good
work ia being done for them nt Carlisle ,
Hampton , mm oilier places , but the
great work must bo done nt homo
on tlio reservations. All children
of the proper ago should bo In school
now and should have at least three years
of training at our homo school before before -
fore being aont away. From those
agency schools should bo selected thu
brightest , strongest nnd most promisinu
boys nnd girls for tlio nboyo mentioned
institutions , nnd there bo trained to become -
como teachers in the ngoncy schools nnd
ahopaIt seems to mo n gront waste of
money to take utterly untutored children
from their Indian liomes. Schools for
Indians in thoutatos arogreatlyhnmpered
in their noble work , because of thu un
prepared material tooy have lo work up
on ; ono must prepare and select the ma
terial horo. 1 am simply recommending
carrying out the treaty of 1808 whicl
provides that for every IfO children there
shall bo n school house and teacher pro
I am' greatly diatrenscdat the mcagro-
ness of this year's allowance of funds
being § 2MO ! less than last year , am in
despair at the small progreaa made , am :
must resort to aomo ono who will nt leasl
givu mo n word of comfort in my anx
iety. It seems as if the "powers thai
bo" nro determined to weary the Hindu rl
their faithful servants. 1 trust in Cod'n
just judgment , and believe the time will
como when the people will roali/.o the
macnltudo and aacrcdneas of thia work ,
and make a determined , intelligent ell'orl
for the salvation of those poor people.
Major Gasmann is an ex-Episcopal
minister of great experience among tin
Sioux , and of high character nni nbilitj
ono of llio few lirat-rato Indian ngonta.
Of the Itu.OOO red-mon'n children ol
school ago , not ever 5000 nro likely
to go to school away. The work on the
reservation is great , and vital to the progress -
gross of the Indian. 1 know of no good
Indian agent who is not sadly hampered
in bin work. The Indian department nt
Washington asks for what is necessary ,
but congress rofuaca to give it. Tht
work of reclaiming ovor200,000 rod-akin-
nod savages is trilling compared with the
dillicully of getting moro adequate ap
propriations. Millions for food but n pal
try sum for good management and educa
tion seems to bo the policy.

nodorn architecture , and lonku now aa
.hough it might ,101110 dny disappear on-
.iroly. It had itn good points and it had
ta disadvantages. In the days when val-
oy tan roamed up and down the land
peeking whom it might devour , the dug
out waa n boon lo many , for the house-
toldor could como at any hour of the
night and fnll into hia houao. But here
ho way was opened for a nerious draw-
jack. The architecture of the
lousQ allowed the vagrant
uulo and tlio high-spirited
1'oxaa fituor to fall into the homo also ,
ind no ono know , when ho sat down lo
Jino , whether it would bo n stray pack
nek or nn absent-minded grimy that
vould f.ill through the roof into the pork
'ravy or fill the Hlum-gullimi with hair
md gravel. Others may like excitement
; t munis , but I do not. It certainly docs
lot nld digestion , nnd a man who hna
nice picked a gm/.ly out of his coll'co
lees not wish to do HO again.
But the deaorted dug-out lu the moat
mcorlcua place 1 know. The drainage of
i dug-out h nuvcr good , nnd nftor the in-
labitanta have gene and there in no ono
o got the water out on bail , the homo-
ike nnd cheerful air thnt should dwell
hero in gone. Dear reader , if you nro
lispnacd to brag on your Hteady nerve ,
ind rpgular pulsolot mo ask you lo spend
ho ni hi in a deaorted dug-out in tliu
) ' Bum of the earth 100 niiluu from food
> r water. If you do not liopo hcfuro the
osy morn that aomo border rullian will
; umo and kill you , you must bo indeed
lardened. I would rather crnwl into the
larconliugus of u total stranger than to
ipond the night in the deserted dug-out
jf my most intimate friend.
