Refrigerator cars were filled, shipping oranges and fresh vegetables back East, even in the dead of winter.It was a lawless town, even by standards of the 1880s: toughest city west of Santa Fe, and Chinatown was the worst. The Chinese came for the railroad work and settled there. They were considered third class people by the Angelos -- the whites from the Midwest and back East, below the Indians and the Mexicans, who had their own Spanish caste system from the old world.Jake jumped off the train from Sacramento looking for the city life and maybe a city girl.
