Recollections ofthe Far West
BY A LUCKLESS WANDERER.
Our trip from Acapulco to San
Francisco was a very pleasant
j one, the passengers being in ex
j cellent Iteallh and spirits. Amuse
ments of various kinds were in
dulged in, the most prominent
! being mock trials.
In sauntering around the ship
we noticed an elderly Mexican in
the steerage, accompanied by a
very beautiful young Castillian
girl, and their appearance indi
cating wealth and refinement, we
were somewhat curious to know
tvhy he had sought the seclusion
ofthe steerage, when his beauti
ful companion might have been
the reigning belle of the cabin.
| inquiry revealed the fact that
j t hey had come on board in a
| small boat during the night at the
mouth of the harbor of Acapul
co. In our eagerness to form the
acquaintance of the fair Senorita
we dropped into conversation
with the old gentleman, in the
course of which we stated that we
had been sojourning in Acapulco
for two weeks, and informed him
of the nature of our business.
This seemed to have the desired
effect, and he introduced himself
as Juan Hidalgo, and his com
panion, who proved to be his
ward,as Senorita Cecelia Lampez.
She was the daughter of a weal
thy Spaniard who had been killed
in the army, and for several years
had lieen living at the home of
Seporllidalgo near Tixtla. Al
though scarcely fifteen years old
she was grown, highly educated,
speaking several languages, and
one of the most agreeable per
sons in conversation we ever met.
The secret of their seclusion was
revealed to 11s that day. Maxi
millian had failed in his attempt
to gain possession of the .Republic.
Senor Hidalgo was a sympathizer
with the invaders. The army
officers were frequent visitors to
his hemp, and (Senorita Cecelia
had become enamored with and
was betrothed to one of tire many
young, dashing and adventurous
line officers. Finally the crash
came, Maximijjiari'fc forces were
deb and her intended was
in Guadalajara. The. sympathiz
ers of the defeated army n ere in
constant fear of the roving bands
of victorious soldiers prowling
around, sparing 1 no one whom
they thought unfriendly to their
cause. Senor Hidalgo was sure
of execution if caught, and Senor-
Cecelia had laid herself liable!
to a like fate because she hadi
identified herself with the inva
ders' cause by being betrothed to
Oiie of their champions. Besides, 1
after the defeat of the army
111 Guerrero she had dispatched a
licet courier to Guadalajara to!
convey the news of the defeat to
her lover, urging him to flee to
the coast and meet her at Man
zsnilla, whither she would come i
|by some means. The result of
;this message was that the entire
; invading army in Xaliseo, of l
! which Guadalajara is the capital,
was forewarned, and they scat
tered out, thus preventing cap
ture. This courier had been seen
j and chased, but not overtaken,
| and the direst vengeance was
I sworn upon the Hidalgo house- 1
| lipid. They fled to the raoun-'
tains where they were concealed
for several weeks, without any
opportunity of reaching Manza- j
nilla by land, when they repaired
to the coast and got on board of
our boat, after undergoing hard
ships innumerable, yet bravely
! stood by the heroic girl.
But she was in a still greater
quandary. So much time had
I elapsed since she had communi
cated with her intended that she
! feared some mishap had befallen
j him, or perchance he had started
out in quest of her, owing to her
long silence and absence. Again,
(he excitement was still intense
about Manzanilla, and if she went
ashore she would surely fall a
victim to her inhuman enemies,
and also betray her lover should
lie be there.
Would we befriend her ?
Most certainly we would. Our
boat was to touch at Manzanilla,
and nothing would afford us more
pleasure than to go ashore and
enjoy the adventure in store. We
obtained an accurate description
of the young officer, and placed
in our breast pocket, with the*
'hilt exposed, a beautiful stiletto
.(dagger) belonging to the girl, a
present from him whom we were
in quest. When the boat cast her
anchor in the harbor, the ship’s
crew manned a small boat to land
passengers, and we went ashore.
• The beach seemed lined with
murderous-looking Greasers and
foreigners, and notwithstanding
the sailors warned us to not leave
1 hem, we walked to a cafe near
by, ordered a bottle of wine, and
seemed to be closely watched by
every cut throat Greaser in the
country. In talking with the
keeperjof the cafe the fact eked
out that all strangers were looked
upon with considerable suspicion
at that time. A happy thought
struck us. We exhibited to him
the letter of introduction we had
received at Acapulco from the
clerk of the consulate, as also an-
other written by the editor ofthe
paper there, and everything
seemed satisfactory. About this
time an uncouth-looking Italian,
evidently a fisherman, stepped in
and ordered something. We took
no notice of him until he asked
us to join him in a social glass.
The unsheathed stiletto seemed to i
attract his attention, and a more
searching glance convinced us
that he was the very man we were
in quest. Unnoticed signs to re
main silent passed between us.
How to communicate to him the
whereabouts of Senorita Cecelia
without betraying us both, as we
seemed to he closely watched,!
was a matter that sorely- puzzled
us for a time.
What were we to do ?
After thinking of many plans,
none of which, after deliberation,
seemed plausible, we looked at
our watch and found we had but
fifteen minutes to spare before
the boat would return to the ship.
The thought occurred to us that
we must miss that boat. Leav
ing the cafe we loitered around
the town until /e felt certain that
the boat had left, and then re
turned. We took particular pains
not to miss it until we were
near the Itailian, and then affect
ed great surprise as well as un
easiness at being left. Turning
to him we offered him a dollar to
row us to the ship, which was
then weighing anchor. The offer
was eagerly accepted and we were
soon in his frail craft, pulling fbr
the ship, which was slowly drifting
| out. A few words explained all
i Soon we were on board, and a
[joyous meeting was had. The
lovers were safe now. The ship
[ had touched at the last port in
; Mexico, and there was no boat
11 hat could overhaul them should
they he suspicioned. They were
not, however, for subsequently
we saw in a San Francisco paper
a short article clipped from a
Mexican journal, which read in
substance as follows:
“When the last P. M. S. S. Co.’s
up boat touched at Manzanilla, an
American came ashore, unwit
tingly remaining until the small
boat had left. He employed an
Italian fisherman named Antoine
to row him to his ship. The pass
enger was safely boarded, but in
clearing the ship the boat was
caught under the wheels and cap
sized, and poor Antoine was
drowned. No assistance was of
fered by .the ship’s crew, who
could not have failed to see the
Antoine was drowned, but it
was in a sea of happiness. The
fisherman was soon transformed
into a very handsome gentleman,
and there were three more pas
sengers booked for the cabin. At
night there was a wedding on
board, and the spacious saloon of
t he ship was turned into a dance
hall. Mr. and Mrs. Antoine five
years ago were living happily in
a beautiful villa not a thousand
miles from San Buenaventura*
and undoubtedly they relate to
their children incidents of loving
hearts being united, despite all
that can be. brought to bear
After leaving Manzanilla no
land was seen until we reached
! Cape San Lucas, in Lower Cali
fornia. Then we kept near the
coast again, and after twenty-four
days actual sailing we steamed
through the Golden Gate, and
tied to a pier in San Francisco.
Our soldiers were quartered on
j Angel Island, with strong proba
j bilities of remaining there several
! weeks. Of course we could not
! remain idle in the meantime, and
so took in the sights of the city.

Here are the world-renowned
salmon fisheries. The canneries
are numerous along -the banks,
each controlling certain fishing
grounds. They are caught most
ly at night, with seines, the catch
ers receiving about two cents per
fish, regardless of size. Of course
they are not caught during the
spawning season. When brought
to the cannery they are first taken

Seven or eight men were seated
around the stove when one of them
suddenly remarked :
‘There comes Jim. Poor fellow, I
feel sorry for him.’’
‘What’s the matter with Jim?,
asked two or three at once.
‘He swore off on the Ist, and he
seems bound to stick it.’
‘Swore off, eh? He doesn’t look
as if he had the sand to stick it out.’
‘Oh, but he has. It would make

Jim entered the place, nodded to
all hands and was warming his toes
when one of the men moved over to
the bar, winked at the rest and said :
‘Eh ? Jim—take sunthin’ with me?
Jim sauntered over to the bar,
poured out a stiff glass of whisky and
sent it down without a sigh. The

and then asked :
