Jninos M. Pnltcp.
In tlio dcnth of .Tninos M. Pattco , ono
of the oldest citizens of Omiihn , becomes
extinct. Anon-resident here for more
tlmn iluo yours , yol retaining an al
most undlminishcd interest up to the
duyof his decease in Omaha's realty ,
Mr. Pattco can justly 1 > o claimed as ono
of us. His death at the family
residence on Wavcrly Place , St.
Louis , a locality , while not strictly aris
tocratic in a modern sense , yet is ac
counted the habitat of bomo of the old
est and most wealthy of tlio St. Louis
population , revives recollections of a
by-gone day in Omaha , and in winch
.lames M. Pattco played a very promi
nent part.
There are some of Omaha's old settlers
tlors who have very vivid remem
brances of the times in which Pattee
figured , and can recount many of the
pecularillos that characterized his bus
iness movements. In the first few years
of his residence in this city ho failed to
display any of these eccentricities , such
as ho is said to have evidenced later.
Ho wai hero to make money by the
shortest route , and in the easiest man
ner possible. That ho succeeded is bo-
yound all doubt , attested to by
the valuable real estate pur
chases ho made from tlmo to time , for
which ho always paid in ha rd cash.
IIo novcr cniibblcd about a dollar or two
in muleiiiIT u bargain. The waj ho
ncquircd'this wealth is well Known.
In these days , the "lottery scheme"
was new , at least in the northwest. It
had thospico of excitement , about it so
very fascinating to both old and young.
Pattoe was a brainy follow ; in certain
directions at all events and the gullu-
blo Ncbraskans and people in other
states fell into his scheme with avidity.
Kverythlng came his way. All the
\isuiil decoys were thrown out , and acted
like a charm , and the Foucho of the
Northwestern lottery fake , nourished
apace. Nor did ho do things by halves.
On the site where is now Lfornbcrgcr's
saloon on Douglas street , between
Thirteenth and Fourteenth streets , ho
opened an ollico and commenced opera
tions in great fatyle. "It was no un-
commo.n thing , " 'saysa certain member
of our present juiiiciary , who know Pat
tee very well , "lor an order to bo given
by him for the printing of 1,000,000
posters as large as the present Omaha
liiii : . They were always printed on
pink paper , and sot up in the most at
tractive dross , that the printing ollico
could supply. "
This lottery manipulator was as prod
igal in tlio help he hired as ho was in
his printing. Thcro were between lifty
and sixty clerks kept constantly at work
bending out circulars , issuing tickets ,
and attending to the various details of
the business. Pattco favored female
labor , and consequently the major portion
tion of his clerical help were composed
of females. Says the same member of
the judiciary : "Pattoo had a keen cyo
for female beauty , and his female clerks
were tlio linost-looking girls you ever
saw in your lifo. Indeed , some of them
were beautiful " women , and.the 'boys'
in thoso" days used to patronize the lot
tery ollico more for the chance of ex
changing 'soft nothings' with the f emi-
iiino clerics than for any great interest
they might feel in the result of Specula
tions in a ticket. "
Patteo was an indefatigable worker.
From early morning until late at night ,
ho was on the alert. It is not surpris
ing1 to know that his operations became
enormous. Tlio mail each day brought
such quantities of communications to
his olllce that the ordinary postal facili
ties of thai day were paralized. Such
nn unexpected rush of business had the
effect "laying out" Postmaster Gritlin ,
and something had to bo done to meet
the dilllculty.
That "something" was of great mo
ment to Omaha , and had a great in
fluence upon her future. She was
raised to the dignity of a postollice of
the llrst class. The population of the
city at the time , nor the amount of post-
olll'co business transacted ( outside of
Patteo's lottery operations ) did not war
rant such an honor. But it came never
theless , and to the man who died
lately , mubt the credit bo awarded.
But Patteo was an ambitious
man , nnd Hew at high game.
In 1871 ho became the proprietor
of a newspaper. It was called
the Dispatch. It died in a short time.
It was principally used to "boom" the
lottery busincs , and probably answered
its purpose. Some pcoplo have boon
ungenerous enough when speaking of
Patteo's lottery to refer to it as ono of
"all blanks and no prizes. " This is not
true. There may not have been a
superfluity of "nost oggs" in it , but
there is no doubt that some people did
draw lucky numbers and derived corresponding
spending linancial benefit therefrom.
So successful did Mr. Patteo find his
lottery business , that in 187.H , still re
taining his Omaha ollico. ho opened a
branch establishment in Laramie City ,
and did a land olllce business for nearly
four years in thatsectionof the country.
It is further stated by some , that Den
ver , Col. , was also favored by his pres
ence and an ollico , but this report can
not bo authenticated. But it is certain
that ho operated in various parts of
Wyoming territory , with his usual
measure of success.
In the winter of 1881 and 1SS2 , Pat
teo's olllccs were transferred from
Douglas street to the building nt the
northwest corner of Sixteenth and Far-
nam streets , formerly the city linll , and
as usual , began to manipulate lottery
tickets. Whether the people of Omahu
had grown tired of the game of chance
as exemplified by Pattoo , or had suc
cumbed to a spasm of virtue , or whether
the lottery agency interfered with the
success of the gambling fraternity , it is
hard to say , but , at this point of the
cltv's hlbtory , an effort was made to put
a stop to all lotteries by process of law.
District Attorney Bnrnhain preferred a
charge against Patteo before the grand
jury belting forth that according to the
btatuto law of Nebraska , lotteries were
illegal. An indictment followed , to
gether with a prolonged triftl. Pat-
too'a couiibol were Go no nil Co win nnd
John M. Thurston. It wus no use , lot
teries hnd to go , and Patteo was found
guilty nnd lined $500 ,
Accepting the inevitable , ho closed
his ollluo , not , however , before taking
the best legal opinion | n the city upon
the question. This opinion , in oyery
instance , wont to support the verdict of
tlio court , After tins Puttee seems to
have soured somewhat on Omaha. Hie
wlfo is described as never having thor
oughly acclimated in the west , nnd
yielding to her solicitations , ho removed
to S' , . Louis , visiting this city , hovovor ,
nt iritorvals to look after his real estate ,
but never being moro lhan n transient
visitor. Ho does not appear to liavo
tried the lottery scheme In the Mound
city , but simply conlontcd himself with
superintending the investments he
made froin tlmo to time in St. Louis
realty. It Is said that of Into years ,
nnd in his old ago , ho conceived great
ideas as to the soundness of investment
In St. Louis securities , nnd placed
every dollar ho wns worth in them. If
reports are to bo believed , ho was judi
cious in so doing , for ho is reputed to
have loft behind him n fortune of about
$500,000. '
Mr. Patteo wns born nt Enfield , Grafton -
ton county , N. II. , on April 0. 18 ! . IIo
came of a sturdy English yeoman
stock , nnd in his early youth
had few educational privileges ,
having to do laborers' work upon his
father s farm situated in Canaan , N. II.
A fcovero injury received while doinir
Hold work incapacitated him for further
manual labor , nnd at the ago of
eighteen year * ho entered nn academy
In the village of Caiman and wont
through a preparatory course of study
for three years. application to
study had the olTect of nnuorminlng his
health , so ho had to give that up.
Being a good penman ho thought , it
would be n good Idea to teach writing.
In this he was eminently successful nnd
wound up this adventure by opening
and conducting for a considerable time ,
the Boston ( Mass. ) Commercial college.
Being of a thrifty disposition Pattco
had by this time accumulated a few
thousand dollars and like many others
of his day , in the year 1833 lie came
west , and made investments in real es
tate in Chicago , Hock Island and other
places. "Money makes money , ' ' it is
said , and Patteo's "specs" turned out
regular bonanzas. IIo literally piled
them up upon edge. In ISo-f ho re
turned to Now Haven and married MJS.S
Eunice D. Head , a beautiful and accom
plished society lady , the daughter
of the Into Henry A. Head , a leading
merchant of New Haven. By this mar
riage live children , all daughters , were
born. While a resident in 1882 in this
city , his youngest child died , an occur
rence that both.Pattoe and wife took to
heart very much , and coupled with his
legal troubles at the same time , may
have had much to do with his leaving
Omaha. After being married , a tour of
Illinois , Iowa and Nebraska was under
taken by the newly married couple.
After a residence of a few years in the
Quaker City , Patteo and wife went to
Europe and spent two years "doing the
sights'1 of the old country. In Mi ! and
' ( ! , ' ! California was the base of his opera
tions , and like everything else ho put
his hands to , Pattco's quartz and gold
mining turned out immensely success
ful. In 1871 ho came toOmalia.
The subject of this writing has been
variously described by some as a j t
ing avaricious fellow ; a crank on' J { '
ligious matters and undesirable'1"
associate. While it is to be
that ho was a man , somewhat
and possessing traits of character dis
tasteful to many. Still ho did have
business and domostio relations worthy
of commendation. There are many in
Omaha , who to this day refer to Pattce
as an upright man in business. His
domostio lifo was above reproach. lie
literally worshiped his family. All
that money could inirehaso for their
comfort was nroeureu. Nothing was too
good for thorn. The Patteo residences ,
both in Omaha and St. Louis , were cel
ebrated for the insignificance of furnish
ing. Outside of business his liberality
was simply remarkable. The llnest ed
ucational advantages were given to his
family , and the benefit of foreign travel
placed at their disposal. Indeed he
seemed to lead all his lifo n sort of
a dual existence. The James
M. Patleo during business hours ; and
the James M. Patteo at homo with the
cr.res and worry of every day life cast
aside , were two distinct people.
Finally on December 1 ! ) the last call
oame. Three week's illness had in
some measure prepared his family for
this termination to a busy , varied and
eminently successful career. And , sur
rounded by these whom he had loved so
.veil , and for whoso comfort ho had so
assiduously catered all his life , ho
passed away.
With all his defects , ho was a good
citizen of Omaha. He caused lots1 of
money to circulate here , and lielp udjtQ
build up tlio city in n great mca' ire.
According'to the lights of his day , hi *
lottery schemes were not. breeches\ > F
the law ; and if ho was a "fakir1. ' or iV
iramblor ; ho at least had the merit of
being a law-abiding one when ordered
to close up , he obeyed.

Los AxaiJMW , Cul.Dec. J3. ! [ Special
CoiTcxpondonco of Tin ; Bin : . ] The
Homo for Disabled Volunteers is about
fifteen miles from this oily niul two
miles this Bide of Santa Monica. The
government lias obtained a tract of land
hero comprising GOO acres , and here is
to bo established u soldiers' homo which
shall eclipse any other In the country.
Tlio grant of land carried with it a
bonus for improving the property , and
the government Is practically com
mitted to a largo additional appropria
tion. Thrco-llfths of the land wasglvon
to'tho government by Senator .lonos of
Nevada and U. G. linker of this city ,
who own tin innnoiibo tract surrounding
Santa Monica and reaching from the
sea baclc to the mountains.
Tlio site was selected by a commis
sion , at the head of which was General
iS'cgioy. One can hardly conceive of a
more lovely location than the ono
selected. The tract of land Is chiclly
mesa and slopes gently from the foot
hills oj the Santa Monica mountains to
the ocean. Tlio spot chosen for the
buildings is quite elevated , and from
the verandah of ono of the barracks
can bo scon a wide oxpaiibd of valley ,
the distant peaks of tlio Sierra Mad re ,
the San Bernardino and thcSan Jacinto
The snow-capped summit of Old
Baldy , seventy-live miles distant , San
Bernardino and Gray baclc 100 mill's away
and the rugged peak of San .lacinto
) oO miles away , are distinctly visible
on a 6lcar day. Tlio city of Los Angeles ,
the llaiiuinii Hotel at Pasadena , Inulo-
wood , Long Ueach , Qallona Harbor ,
Santa Monica and several smaller vil
lages tire tilbo in plain sight.
The roar of the waves of the ocean
can be heard , and across Simla Monica
hay the Catahna island is hoea. Be
tween that iblantl and the main land
can frequently be been the shipping
entering or departing from San Pedro
harbor. Back of the homo are the
Santa Monica mountains , and the canon
of the same name. Liveoul ; trues ,
hcattcrod over the intervening' foot
hills like scattering trees in an old
orchard , relieve the otherwise uninter
esting tisouet of these rolling heights ,
The cool brcczu ftom tliu ocean , tem
pered by the proximity of tlio low
mountain range gives to the spot on
which the homo is situated the climatic
conditions most to be desired. The
bummer's heat can never bo intolerable
and the winter's chill seldom reaches
a temperature huliiciently low to occa
sion oven frost. The tcndercst of semitropical -
tropical plants , llpwers and trees will
llourish. The grounds are so shaped-by
nature and so bituntcd for atmospheric
conditions as to be susceptible of the
hijrhcbt , degree of embellishment. The
btately palm , tlio luxuriant banana , and
all the trees which make our homes
hero so beautiful areito bo planted.
Flowers and fruits will abound. In
fahorl it is the purpose oftho olilcers of
tlio home here to spare cno pains , no ex
pense , no clTort , to nmko this the most
beautiful spot on earth. ' The beautiful
sloping mesa , the ravines , the knolls ,
and even the rugged cliffs arc all to be
made as attractive aa the landscape
gardener's art can plan sind large a p
propriations execute.
There are now four barracks in course
of construction , two being nearly com
pleted. Two cottages ml a barn are
the other buildings. ' The barracks
have accommodations for > 100 persons in
each. There are to < bo twenty-live
similar buildings , according to the
plan. The better of thetwo ! cottages
.is to be the gardener's residence. An
. " 58,000 cottage is to bo built at once for
'the ' governorind one to cost $0,000 for
'the surgeon.
The four barracks tire quite hand
some in architecture , ana will coit com
plete 8110,000. Each lias a wide veran
dah 400 feet long in front and on tlio
two ends. Reading rooms , reception
rooms , bath and sleeping rooms are
provided in each. A temporary dining
room , Milllciont to accommodate ) sol
diers , is to bo erected immediately
near the barracks. This will eventual
ly bo replnceri by a capacious one to
beat IV'UU when the work hm further
progressed. A large hospital , and an
extensive mmrtorinastpr's htoro with
other buildings , are included in the
plan of improvements. The biiparvis-
ing carpenter advised mo that & 2oOGOO
would lie expended on the grounds
within live year.- ) .
There are now some fortv disabled
veterans cared for at the Home. They
are temporarily quartered in a rough
board building , and are by no moans
comfortable. A great many applica
tion ? are received , and only btich as are
easily dissuaded from coming are kept
away. The ex-soldiers are very much
interested in the southern homo which
is to be provided hero. Governor
Brown thinks the accommodations will
be taxed to their utmost almost im
mediately after their completion. No
moro delightful spot can bo secured for
the war-worn patriots who wish to pass
their decliningyears ; in comfort.
Like ovorvthing else , the Soldiers'
Homo partook of the nature of a real
Obtnto speculation , .lonos & Baker
made their magnificent donation of BOO
acres to assist them in sailing off sev
eral thousand acres. When the homo
was located , a tract adjoining was im
mediately platted into acre lots and
was mimcil Nogloy Villa. Another
syndicate laid off a town site near and
called It Suiibot. This syndicate sub
scribed $100,000 as a cash donation to
bo used in beautifying thopromises. It
staked off acres of town lots , started to
build a mammoth hotel and subsidized
a railway to build hitherward. The
Los Angeles county railroad , building
at the time toward Santa Monica , nlbo
contributed to the enterprise. But the
real estate buyers , after investing in
Suriset , began' to grow indifferent to
speculation. The second and third pny-
ments wore not met , and much of the
land remained unsold. The hotel is
yet unfinished , n monument to the folly
of the forinoi a great , gloomy , unpainted -
painted box on the open prnirio. The
$100,000 was hurd to get , and in lieu of
two-thirds of it the Home commission
took an additional 200 acres of land , and
agreed to accept $33t3a : in cash in ton
equal payments. The government is to
bo congratulated upon the princely
property secured , and the disabled vet
erans are to bo happy in their beautiful
homo , but the real estate speculators
will hardly realize their hopes in hard
cash , whatever onjoyinout they may
obtain from the' thought of having
