Greetings sweet Patter!
MOL! So, got another brother did you? Oh well. Being the only gal must mean you get special attention, right?
Our weather has been brutal out here, with temps in the 90's! But it appears that we should be getting cooler soon. Now, if we can just keep the state from burning down...

Many purrs, Hedley

Thank you to everyone who joined Club Cat! 01/31/2014 12:00.00 AM
Patter! Whoa! Patter!
I thought you gave up on me a month ago! I tried to get to your page again, a few days back, but I couldn't find it, really don't know why. Every time I would put your name up in the search box, it would take me to some other kitty's page who had either visited you or mentioned you. I put your page number up the same way, and the same thing kept happening, so I thought you had left CC already! I just gave up.

Good to see you again! Please, please, please let me know when you are up on Catster!
Mom copied your mom's email, so we don't lose track of you!

Good evening, Patter and furamily
Hello kitties! Today I will cover some of the dominant movers and shakers of San Francisco during the gold rush. While they made major contributions to the city, and resided here, they were known for being notoriously ruthless in their business dealings, thus earning them the title of "Robber Barons". We hope you enjoy their stories.

The Big Four: Robber Barons of the Gold Rush, Crocker, Hopkins, Stanford and Huntington

Today: Charles Crocker (September 16, 1822 – August 14, 1888)

Crocker was an American railroad executive who founded the Central Pacific Railroad, which constructed the westernmost portion of the first transcontinental railroad, and took control with partners of the Southern Pacific Railroad

Crocker was born in Troy, New York. At the age of 23, in 1845, he founded a small, independent iron forge of his own. He used money saved from his earnings to invest later in the new railroad business after moving to California, which had become a boom state since the Gold Rush. He settled in San Francisco during his railroad days.

In 1861, after hearing an intriguing presentation, Charles Crocker was one of the four principal investors, along with hotel magnet Mark Hopkins, East Coast Railroad executive Collis Huntington, and industrialist and university founder Leland Stanford (also known as the big four), who formed the Central Pacific Railroad, which constructed the western portion of the First Transcontinental Railroad in North America.

His position with the company was that of construction supervisor and president of Charles Crocker & Co., a Central Pacific subsidiary founded expressly for the purpose of building the railroad. Crocker bought train plows to plow the tracks of snow through the mountains, but they often derailed due to ice on the tracks. He then had more than 40 miles of snow sheds built to cover the tracks in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, in order to prevent the tracks from getting covered with snow in the winter. This project cost over $2 million.

While the Central Pacific was still under construction, in 1868, Crocker and his three wealthy associates then acquired control of the Southern Pacific Railroad, thus assuring dominance in the rail industry once the Transcontinental Railroad was completed.

Crocker was briefly the controlling shareholder of Wells Fargo in 1869, and served as its president. After he sold down, Crocker acquired controlling interest for his son, William, in Woolworth National Bank, which was renamed Crocker-Anglo Bank. The bank was prominent in San Francisco until the 1970's, when it was fully acquired by Wells Fargo.

Hey, don't worry, sweet Patter
Mom took the address for purringtoncats@gmail.com, and she is collecting emails from most of our furiends. We won't lose touch.
There is much buzz about two other websites, catster, and showmecats, that a lot of kitties may join. Mom is saving our pages in designated files, and trying to get all Neelix's blogs out in time.
So please forgive me if I'm late with a visit, and I mean west coast late, too!
From what I understand, if Neelix makes it into the castle, it will be one very big, very non-stop Pawty! He says he doesn't want the castle resources to be left to just disintegrate, so we will make good use of them and keep the Pawty going until they turn off the lights! Join me!
Many purrs, Hedley

Hi there, Patter!
Good morning, kitty! Thank you for your votes! Of course I will pass along your best wishes to Hedley. I will only tell him about the kitty kiss, however. You can tell him that in purrson, (hee, hee)

The influence of big money on San Francisco politics (Part 1)

It was during the 1860s to the 1880s when San Francisco began to transform into a major city, starting with massive expansion in all directions, creating new neighborhoods such as the Western Addition, the Haight-Ashbury, Eureka Valley, the Mission District, culminating in the construction of Golden Gate Park in 1887.

The City's famous Cable Cars were built around this time, a unique invention devised by Andrew Smith Hallidie in order to traverse the City's steep hills while connecting the new residential developments. Today, Hallidie Plaza in San Francisco bears his name.

San Francisco grew in cultural prominence at this time as famous writers Mark Twain, Bret Harte, Ambrose Bierce, Rudyard Kipling, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Oscar Wilde spent time in the city, while local characters developed such as Emperor Norton.

However, by the 1890s, much like across the United States, San Francisco was suffering from machine politics and corruption, and was ripe for political reform. Wealthy financier Adolph Sutro, ran for mayor in 1894 under the auspices of the Populist Party and won handily without campaigning. Unfortunately, except for the Sutro Baths, Mayor Sutro was not adept at holding political office, and substantially failed in his efforts to improve the city.

The next mayor, James D. Phelan elected in 1896, was somewhat more successful, pushing through a new city charter that allowed for the ability to raise funds through bond issues. He was able to get bonds passed to construct a new citywide sewer system, seventeen new schools, two parks, a hospital, and a main library. After leaving office in 1901, Phelan became interested in remaking San Francisco into a grand and modern Paris of the West.

As is the case today, much of the politics of the era was heavily influenced by the influx of funding by special interest groups. Most notably, mining and railroad interests, followed closely by shipping and banking conglomerates. Labor, too, got into the mix, until local government was a collection of well paid representatives of those interests.

TOMORROW : Charles Crocker, Mark Hopkins, Leland Stanford, and Colin Huntington, the Pacific Railroad's big four

Greetings, Patter! Neelix here
I apologize for muscling in on Hedley's time, but I have been taking up all of mom's blogging time with my catpaign. Hedley sends his love and will get over to visit, when mom lets him.
Meanwhile I hope you enjoy my stories. This is number six.

Greetings Kitties! Today we touch upon the aspect of mob mentality.

Vigilantism and racial intolerance

While fledgling San Francisco reeled from the chaotic effects of rapid population increase, a group of like-minded individuals formed the Committee of Vigilance, a quasi-political militia, taking the " only occasionally enforced" law into their own hands.
This popular "militia" movement, as it was termed, distinguished itself through acts of violence, The Committee "judged" and summarily lynched 12 people, kidnapped hundreds of ethnic Irish, as well as government militia members, and forced several elected officials to resign.

The Committee of Vigilance relinquished power both times after it decided the city had been "cleaned up." to its moral satisfaction. This vigilante activity later focused on vulnerable Chinese immigrants, with their acts creating many race riots.The riots culminated in the creation of the Chinese Exclusion Act in 1882 that attempted to reduce Chinese immigration to the United States by limiting immigration to males and drastically reducing numbers of immigrants allowed in the city. The law was not repealed until 1943 with the Magnuson Act.

However, due to the Gold Rush, and despite of the Vigilantes, and the somewhat gradual but successful implementation of law and order in late 1800's San Francisco, the city's red-light district thrived, and became known as the famous Barbary Coast, which, at the time, harbored a hotbed of gambling, drugs, prostitution and was known, most notoriously, for Shanghi-ing unwilling sailors.

Hey, pretty Patter!
Sorry I'm so late in getting back to you, but Mom is starting to get ready for Thanksgiving.

My pretty Patter, I wanted to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!! We will all be off-line both for tomorrow and Thanksgiving Day, as Mom is cooking, and has a lot of prep work ahead of her. The kitchen will be a disaster zone, mol!

She's also got to kitty-sit Neelix's brother, Earl, at his house while his folks are out of town. So the next few days will be really hectic. Have a purrfect Thanksgiving, kitties, and the furamily!
