hushed up by Fremont's advice urion
this ground, that as the FaQi
States had Tiot up to that time ac
quired the . possession of California.
It would be very unwise to make thts
discovery public because if It became
generally known that children could
pick up gold along the gulches to
the extent that these samples Indi
cated. England would use every ef
fort to secure a base upon San Fran
cisco bay. and If possible prevent
the United States from securing th
control of California. Therefore the
Mexican war was fought to a Hnlsh.
and Mexico ceded California to the

and we 'Hooverlxed considerably by
living on bread and milk straight for

I was planning to go to Pennsylvania
and enlist in the 106th Pennsylvania
Inrantry .a regiment in which I had
a number of cousins with whom 1
had arranged to mess. The time
came In the summer when Thad
wanted to visit his relatives In and
about Salem, and In connection
therewith was confronted with the
matter of 'ways and means. The
regular fare at this time by stage or
boat to Salem was $7. exclusive of
meals en route. Thad was the old
est child of th Welch family, which
consisted of hts mother and several
children living In Yamhill county,
with the father. Russell Welch, away
in the mines, and was dependent on
almost exclusively to supply the
need for ready cash. Therefore, to
nay out $18 for a round trip to Sa

solved. The matter was discussed
between us for a few days without
belnr settled, and finally I offered
to loan him the monev with the prl
vilere of returning it In installments
of a dollar a week. This B ae-
clined. Then I said:
