every on has had it, including myself,
with which I was confined le-iuy la d
three weeks. How Is that, to tie sick
so. long among strangers in tin- grand,
glorious climate of southern California.
When you hear of Southern Califor

Let me say to you right, here, don't for
one minute lose sight of. the fact lhat
Oregon is a grand, goodold state. Now
I am not homesick when I say this.
; Well, now about cities and business,
You may think it dull, in Oregon aud
.Portland, and no dnubt-il is, but so far
as business is concerned, Portlaini is as
far ahead of Los Angeles as the Imc
apples nf Oregon are ahead of what
they call apples here except we mat
say in a retail way; hen-tin y doit aouil
business, aud so far sb getting a place
on a salary with u TOtail house here,
you bave a young ai.u.v of hundrcdsnf
fellows tiiat come out here from
the East for their health, to compete
with. So a man with a family has no
chance as here people are willing to
work for almost anything just to stay
here, to avoid the cold wintel of the
East. Speaking about this being a
land of fruit, sure it is, but I lell you
that Oregon can beat it to death on.
nvery tiling exci pt grapes and oranges.
Portland to-day isthe best city on this
coast. I frequently run across Ore
srouiaus down here, and nearly all at
them are disgusted. If it was' not tVir
the Eastern money thai cornea in liofe
during the winter, times would be
pretty dull. They figure on theeastern
tenderlVsit here-just us we figure en a
good wheal eiij in Oregon, ami with
out it hotels, restaurants, dry goods
stores, etc., woola do a poor business.
There are many people with means
that just live here during the winter,
and you can see them every day riding
around with their darkey drivers.
There tire absolutely no manufacto
ries tiere. Still it seems to be u pros
perous city, aud you may say country,
aud as I have said they' make lots of
money on fruit that is not as good us
iu Oregon, hut when you talk of buy
ing laud it is away up in G-, and no
one can buy it but tlie rich, und even
then your expenses are enormous,
with water hire, etc. Their great cock
and hull story is, (he laud of perpetual
summer, the land of good health, etc.
Some people may think so, but I con
tend to-day that Oregon is a healthier
state taking everything into consider
ation. You see healthier people in
Oregon than you see here, eyerv day.
The average California! has liver cv..a
pluint or whisky complaint. I am
trying to give you ust what an Ore
gouian honestly thinks of Southern
I cannot complete this letter without
sieaking of the women. You are
struck with the idea in walk
ing tlie streets of Los Angeles that
nearly every woman you meet is a
heauty, which so far as dress and
make-up is concerned is a fact, bbt as
to real beauty the California girls do
look pretty, but it is all make-up. and
tin v don't comnare with our rosv
cheeked Oregon girls.
Prehaps what I have writen will
give you some idea of what I think of
Southern California. There Is money
here, to be sure, but how a poor cuss
is going to get hold of it, is tlie next
questiou. The worst fault I have with
tlie whole business is tlie changeable
climate, as you have winter and sum
mer here every day. Blooming dowers
are all nice enougli but you get tired
of them, aud they don't make business.
You can't live on climate. Don't he
in a hurry to rush off down here. I
am compelled to say, give me the cli
mate of Oregon in the place of this
uiucb-boasted land of milk and honey.
