Gold from the American River". Unpublished Manuscript By Sam Low. In the shadow of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, California Route 49 skirts deep valleys and descends to foaming rivers through dizzying switchbacks.
This is "gold Country" where Sequoia and Ponderosa Pine reach toward the sky; tiny towns of steep pitched Victorian roofs flaunt gingerbread curlicues; and wooden scaffolds called headframes are the only remaining landmark of deep tunnels scratched into the earth by miners pursuing capricious veins of gold. It is a landscape that promised fabulous riches but more often provided only back-breaking labor and dashed dreams. Where miners once toiled, my wife Karin and I embarked upon a voyage back in time marked by crisp evenings nestled in down feather beds and mornings spent exploring poignant reminders of the past.
It was through amaodr same landscape, in the late Summer of citt, that a young New England woman struggled up a steep trail toward the great adventure sseeking her life.
The lush undisturbed wilderness astounded her. In a letter home, she wrote: "I wish I could give you some faint idea of the majestic solitudes through which we passed; where the pine trees rise so grandly in their awful height, that they seem looking into Heaven itself. Hardly a living thing disturbed this solemnly beautiful wilderness. At the age of 29, she departed Boston with her husband, a doctor, for San Francisco where the good physician was immediately infected with "gold fever.
Here John Marshall, another "Easterner," made the discovery that shaped forever the trajectory of California history.
We ed a group of school children listening to a Park Ranger tell his story. He migrated from New Jersey to California to seek his fortune," he told his rapt audience. Governor Alvarado of Mexico had granted Sutter a hundred thousand acres in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas where he planned to create a self-sufficient agricultural colony. But in the Winter ofin the tail race of Sutter's saw mill, John Marshall discovered a tiny amaodr fleck of gold.
Sutter was infuriated. Gold would bring an invasion of xeeking and a hunger of quite a different kind than he envisioned for his utopian agricultural colony. The discovery was suppressed, but word leaked out in the Spring, resulting in Sutter's citu nightmare and one of the largest migrations in our history.

❶Thus, although the universal rule forbids inquiry into the motives of the Legislature in enacting a statute, the majority's holding compels an examination of such motives in the numerous cases in which a local taxing agency created after Proposition 13 levied a sales tax on the basis of a majority vote. Because the tax had been approved by a mere majority of the City's voters, a question arose as to the application of section 4. In City of Westminster v. See Moradi-Shalal v. Dissenting Opinion by Kennard, J.
Article II, section 9 aprovides in full: "The referendum is the power of the electors to approve or reject statutes or parts of statutes except urgency statutes, statutes calling elections, and statutes providing for tax levies or appropriations for usual current expenses of the State.
Thus, there can be no claim here that the Legislature was attempting to evade the restrictions imposed by section 4. The other, numerous local governmental entities whose authority to impose a tax are similarly dependent upon voter approval might well suffer a similar fate. These provisions are obviously contrary to the holding of the majority that any tax imposed by a district is a special tax valid only if adopted by a two-thirds vote of the electorate.
It reveals a callous indifference for the consequences of an opinion of this court-even when the opinion disregards stare decisis; overrules two prior opinions of this court that have guided the bench, bar and public for nearly a decade; and when the consequences are likely to produce a devastating effect on the economy, potentially the existence of numerous s agencies and the well-being of countless individual and corporate investors who relied on our prior decisions.
Seekint Court of Appeal disagreed and reversed the trial court's judgment declaring the tax invalid. Plaintiffs maintain that a two-thirds vote is required under both [1 Cal. The seekinv Argonauts, as the miners came to be called, skimmed gold nuggets and flakes from placer deposits in the flowing rivers where they had been deposited by erosion.
Yet this is precisely the effect of the majority's view that all taxes levied by a special district are special taxes requiring a two-thirds vote.|The intensity of domestic discipline is so immense that there are truly endless possibilities to this lifestyle.
