FOUR MILLIONAIRES. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express — 12 February 1879

FOUR MILLIONAIRES. Four residents of San Francisco have died since the beginning of this year — Hopkins, Col ton, Heese, and O'Brien — all of whom began life in poverty and died reputed millionaires, each of three of them leaving an estate estimated at more than 8,000,000 dols. The .S an Francisco A Ua gives the following ac count of the four : — ' Hopkins was strict, economical, fond of business for the sake of business, with a strong sense of duty, a dislike of display and of any participation in political management. He was a quiet, just man, liked and trusted by all who knew him well ; fitted to thrive by prudence and thrifty avoiding everything that looked to him like speculation, but not unable to com prehend or unwilling to undertake great enterprises, such as the Central Pacific was at the beginning. Colton was a very different man. He began life as an office-holder, was a natural politician, and was fond of participating in public movements and influencing men about him. He...

' Kkli.y,' more potent than the earlier sesame is the word by which the Australian knights penetrate bank safes, and bind policemen captivc in their own lock-ups. The redoubtable Edward, with the proverbial revolver in each hand, strikes terror into all hearts, be tliey constables' or civilians'. Nor, perhaps, is it to be wondered at. It is a very simple thing to be cour ageous wJien one is a hundred miles away, but not so easy when the shining barrel is lightly pressing on one's temple, and the ominous click tells you that the man who holds it does not care the snap of a cap whether he blows your brains out or no. It Ls astonishing how rapidly all one's strongly built philosophy about the next world crumbles away when there is a cartridge smiling at you from the wrong end of a revolver-chamber. You begin to think that the present isn't half as bad a world as it might be, and that you can spend a few more years very profitably in iiKjiiiring into the future, without taking a sudden ...
