Hon. William McPherson Hill. ..., 24 Jan 2011 [cached]
Hon. William McPherson Hill. [Napa, Lake & Sonoma Cos.] Is a Representative of 20th Senatorial District, including the Counties of Napa, Lake and Sonoma, and resides in at Sonoma in Sonoma Valley. He is married, 55 years old, a Democrat to the backbone, and by occupation and profession a general farmer, with the culture of the grapevine as his specialty. He is a native of Pennsylvania, and came to California in 1849, via Cape Horn, and was 202 days in making the voyage. Mr. Hill is one of Sonoma's most prominent and honored citizens, has been one of its Supervisors for three years, and President of the Sonoma County Agricultural Society. He has also filled the position of President of the San Pablo District Pioneer Society for two years. Mr. Hill is now serving the second session of his term, which will expire December, 1879. He is a dignified and social gentleman, and at the last session of the Legislature, by his consistent and manly course, gained the approbation and confidence of his constituents, and the esteem of his fellow-Senators. His watchword is, "economy and retrenchment in the government of the State," and his votes of the present session stand a living monument to his credit, that his practices are consistent with his teachings. He is an able Senator well posted on matters of legislation, and advocates what he concedes to be right, regardless of anybody or anything else. He never bores the Senate with long speeches, but says that he means in a plain, comprehensive manner, and when he is done, and he quits. Mr. Hill is chairman of Committee on Agriculture, and a member of Committee on Counties and County Boundaries, Roads and Highways, State Prison, and Fisheries and Game. Hon. S. G. Hilborn. [Solano County] This gentleman represents the Nineteenth Senatorial District, Solano County, and is a native of Minott, Maine, age 42 years. He came to this coast in 1861, and settled in Vallejo, where he is now engaged in the practice of law. He is President of the Vallejo Land Improvement Company, is City Attorney, and was six years Alderman of the city.
