High-Priced Beans. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 26 May 1881

High-Priced Beans. Tom Wstrous, coiiiiuemal traveler, stopped off at the Marshall, Mich., eating house several years ago. He was not hungry, and called for a plate of beans, which he received. He inquired the price, and was informed that it was 75 cents. "That's a thundering price for beans," said Tom. "That's the price," said the proprietor. Tlie train was just starting; Tom paid the bill, and the coaches bore him and his indignation on toward Detroit. This was on Saturday. On-Mon-day, Gilmore, the eating house man, received a telegram, collect on delivery, $1.25, which he paid, and read on opening it: "*A thundering high price for beans." Thirty days from that date a neat express package was handed in to Gilmore, C. O. D., who paid 90 cents for the privilege of opening it to discover a lot of sawdust, on top of which lay a slip of paper with the cabalistic symbols: "A thundering price for beans!'' Two months from this Gilmore was summoned to Chicago to meet a former business partn...

A subsidy of $50,000 has been offered by Canada for the est a' - lishment of a Hue of steamers to run between Montreal and France, provided the Utter Will contribute an equal sum. The Attorney-General's office is vigorously prosecuting the work of gathering evidence to bring the persons connected with the ''Star Route *' frauds to justice. It is &aid that important arrests will sjou be luade. It is estimated that more than one proposition to turn State's evidence is under consideration. Our farmers should take unusual pains, this season, to properly cure their hay. The quality is not as good as usual, the quantity is large, and prices will undoubtedly rule low. Only the best cured hay will bring the top of the market. The bleached article will not be wanted at all. Our farmers are improving each year in this respect, Let them this year make a grand stride toward perfection in hay-making. The Supreme Court has decided that growing crops may be attached.

Grape Culture in Livermore Valley [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 26 May 1881

Grape Culture in Livermore Valley Editor Herald— Sir: The culture of the grape has become within the past few years one of the great induitries of California, and one which, I believe, is yet in its infancy. Los Angeles, Napa and Sonoma valleys are the tirst sections of our State to tarn their attention to grape culture on a large sea 1 ?; but the greatly increased demand for California wines, during the past few years, has created an interest therein everywhere, as well as caused the vine-growers of these counties to largely increase the area of their vineyards. ..hat began as an experiment has proved to be a great success, and the attention of capital is just turning to war ia vinyards, as a profitable investment. I therefore wish to call attention to the adaptability of the Livermore Valley and foothills, to grape production, deeming it unjust that so eminently favorable a locality for this purpose should be overlooked. My resi deuce of a few weeks here, coupled with a long exper...

Our Washington Letter. [Newspaper Article] — Livermore Herald — 26 May 1881

Our Washington Letter. Washington, D. C, > May 16, 1881. ) The Senate session may he considered as almost closed. It is not likely to last more than three or four days more, or to be very exciting thereafter. Of course .Robertson's case will have to be voted on or evaded, but there seems a general understanding that whichever course is pursued there shall be little if any further discussion on the subject. My own opinion is that Robertson will be confirmed by Wednesday. This will not, of course, end the hostility between the Administration and the New York Senator. But the Senators know they would weaken themselves by undignified opposition to the inevitable. The chances are still largely against the confirmation of Win. E. Chandler as Solicitor General, although a vague rumor went round the newspaper offices that several Democratic Senators would vote for confirmation. No names were given and few credit the story. There will be at least four Republican votes against Chan...

Slowly, but ftirely, its merits as a thoroughly practical institution are becoming known and appreciated, not only at home, but abroad, and it now ranks among the best of such schools in our State. It forms the connecting link between our public school and the State University, and offers an excellent finishing course to such as are unable to pursue the higher brunches of study. The closing exercises of this iastitution last Friday evening were superior, in point of general excellence, to those of any previous year, while the attendance could not have been larger, Palace Hall being filled from stage to door with an attentive and appreciative audience.
