IXCIDEXTS OF THE DAY, ETC.
Brownsville may well feel proud of
her celebraltou, which passed oil tothe
satisfaction of all interested, and hap
pily without accident or any occurrence
to mar the happiness of the occasion.
The early light of morning broke
upon heavy banks of clouds, which,
seemingly threatened rain, but only
served to make the day pleasant and
not uncomfortably cool.
As per programme, the procession
formed at 9 A. M., headed by the
Brownsville Cornet Band, who with
brightly burnished instruments, and
their new uniforms, presented a very
creditable appearance, next iu order
came "Our Future Senators," the
little boys all under 10 years of age,
ana some not only o years old, prettiy
dressed in red, while, and blue, happy
in their position, which to them, was
the acme of joy. The Liberty Car, its
adornment, festooning of tlowers, rib
bons, ilags and bevy of beautifully
dressed young ladies, with happv
smiling faces, each liearing an Ameri
can Hag, representing the various
states in the union, was one of the
main features of attraction, and was
most truly a pyramid of loveliness.
Next came the "Lady riders" mount
ed upon handsomely caparisoned
horses, each and every lady leautiful
in attire, graceful in noise, elicltating
murmers of admiration and applause
from the immense throng of people
that crowded our streets. Arriving at
the picnic grounds the programme as
announced was carried out; the speak
ing was interesting, the songs and
musical entertainment pleasing, and
the various races productive of much

('apt. V: D. Hagen, who In company
with Prof. Luiigwoitliy of Pnrtlamf,
hrs spent, the last month hi the Cala
poola inintiiar district, returned
week. The Captain has for two rs
had great faith in this district a-id' the
last four weeks spent iu these mines
has made his belief doubly sure. No
doubt has ever been entertained as to
the richness of the surface qurtz, but
some doubted the permaiioicv of thy
leads. In the absence of all oilier testi
mony one would think that the fact
of these leads having been discovered
and located for miles across deep can
ons and over mountains, never varylnir
their course and always rewarding the
faithful prospector by giving unmistak
able evidence of the riches of this sec
tion of country, would be sufficient to
satisfy reasonable minds. The unani
mous testimony of every man who Is
tall enough in his calling to Iks seen
over n half-dozen mining camps, has
been and is to-dayihat In the vicinity
of Gold Hill are gold and silver indica
tions (minus base metal) compared
with which a "Washoe" and a "Cotter
d'Alcmj" fade Into Insignificance. The
work now being done in these mines,
and th? great developments yet to le
made this year attest the belief and
the constancy of a few nu n of mettle,
and before the leaves fall a great many
who will nt believe their own senses
will discover that the lit.eral Use of
the epithet "cranky" is but a poor
taunt. 10 very great ent'.-rpr!s, as we
have often stated, must pass through
the three stages of ridicule, discussion
and adoption. Ridicule has proved
incirectual as a weapon and nwv be w
dcxtrously handled by the foolish as by
the wise. Discussion promise. soon to
ripen Into belief, and when this latter
stage is reached there will !e a shaking
among the fossils and "dry bones''
such as the valley of Jchoapht never
witnessed. Mr. Hagen will return to

cash. This means everybody.
