"ESTILL--General James M. ESTILL died at his residence in San Francisco at eleven o'clock last evening. He was ailing for some three months, and was confined to his bed for about two weeks previous to his death. He was a prominent public man in California, a politician by nature, and always managed to make his politics pay. He emigrated in '49 or '50 from Missouri to this State, and became lessee for ten years of the State Prison, and, as such, was a source of great annoyance to the several State administrations that have held office from that time until this. We cannot now remember the mutations in his connection with the Penitentiary, so numerous have the changes been, but he was never wholly unconnected with it, save for a very short period, and it is safe to say, that in them all, he came out uppermost. No man has received one tenth the money from the State that General Estill did; and no man made greater profit on what he received. In 1852 he was elected State Senator from Napa and Solano - his family then resided in Benicia - for the term of two years, and he worked wth a will to maintain the capital at Vallejo, where it then was. He was interested with McDOUGAL, GREEN, VALLEJO, FRISBEE, and others in the lands in that vicinity; and was about that time engaged in the slaughtering business, having bargained with Vallejo for all his wild cattle, which he killed on the premises and shipped to San Francisco. He made much money at that. In fact he was a modern Midas, for almost every thing he touched turned, under his magic hand, into gold. In 1857 he was elected to the Assembly from Marin county, although residing in San Francisco, and made himself conspicuous as the assumed leader of the what was known as the law and order forces. He was a shrewd polititian but an unsafe legislator. Untiring in energy, with a will that would conquer if it could, a plasticity of character which could smile in defeat and an insinnating manner with which, when he found it for his benefit, he could make friends of his bitter foes; he was hard to overcome in any of his public undertakings. He quarreled in 1855 with Gov. BIGLER for voting one of his measures, a State prison bill, we believe, or an appropriations bill in which he was largely provided for, and in the campaign of that year, assumed the editorship of the State Tribune - Parker H. FRENCH's paper - then published in this city, and wrote some half dozen communications under the nom de plume of "Rube Roper." That was about the extent of his editorship, as both himself and French have informed us. He succeeded in electing Johnson having joined the Know Nothings for that purpose, and under his administration received one of the fattest State Prison contracts that he ever held. He was kind and patronizing to those he could control, and violently abusive of those who opposed him in any of his schemes. He was, however, a fearless man, and would as soon speak his thoughts before a man's face as behind his back, provided always that he might not thereby injure himself politically or pecuniarily. As a friend, he was acceptable; as a foe, to be feared. his disease was congestion of the bowels." Source: The Daily Bee (Sacramento, CA), 27 Apr 1859. Contact: Sean Ryan seanryan@houston.rr.com
