YO SEMITE. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 May 1881

YO SEMITE. FULL DIRECTIONS REGARDING THE TRIP TO THE GREAT VALLEY -- HOW TO PREPARE, HOW TO START, WHATI TO CARRY, AND HOW TO BEHAVE WHEN YOU GET THERE—THE LTVERMORE HERALD MAN TELLS WHAT HE KNOWS ABOUT IT. There are probably very few people in this community who have not heard of the Yo Semite Valley, while a large number of our people cherish at least a faint hope of one day visiting tnis great orehouse of the wonders of old Dame Nature. Iv a majority,of however, this has so fai pmve'tT to be "a hope deferred, ' for scarcely a dozen residents of this Township have ever yet seen its realization. The journey has always been regarded as one of such magnitude, and the preparations therefor deemed so great, that "putting it off till next year has become quite as much a part of the programme as making the first proposition for taking the trip. Dozens of embryo Yo Semite parties have been formed here, in the Fall, or Winter, only to experience complete shipwreck before the first of June....

Our Washington Letter [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 19 May 1881

Our Washington Letter Washington, D. C, > May 9, ISSI. j In former letters I have spoken of the advantages of frequent changes among the subordinate officials in the Government Departments. The need of such changes is shown forcibly in the results of inquiry into Gen. Brady's olhce. No matter whether he was guilty of fraud or not, his business was so conducted that enormous frauds were perpetrated. Now is is found that the Auditor of the Treasury who setiles the accounts of Brady's contractors, though perhaps not himself corrupt, has not taken measures to protect the Government from the rapacity and wickedness of contractors. He and his assistants are to be displaced. The truth seems to be that he found business beinj; done in a certain way ten or twelve years, when he became Sixth Auditor, and has been doing it in the same way ever since. The Government might need steel pens, but he lias been giving it quills. Four years is long enough for any bureau officer to serve, an...
