DOMINGO ANTHONY ZANONE. - The sons of the late Domingo Zanone, known to his generation in Humboldt county and in San Francisco markets as a veteran cattleman of the Mattole valley, are keeping up the reputation attaching to their name, which has long been synonymous with success in the cattle business in this region. Domingo Zanone, the father, came to America from Italy when a young man, and settled in Humboldt county in 1868, where he became a large landowner, acquired valuable property at the county seat, and was associated with various business enterprises which marked the progress of events in northern California.

Of the family of seven children, six of whom are now living, Domingo Anthony Zanone was born March 8, 1887, in Eureka, Cal., and received excellent educational advantages, taking his preparatory training in his native city, where he attended the primary and high schools, afterward studying at St. Mary's College, Oakland, Cal. His brother Ernest attended the same educational institutions, and they are now in partnership in the cattle business, owning and operating the Zanone stock ranch in the Mattole valley, a tract of thirty six hundred acres devoted to the raising of high grade Hereford and Durham beef cattle, the ranch having seven miles of ocean front, which is a distinct advantage, since the frost is thereby lessened and the grass rendered more abundant. The brothers inherited this property from their father, and though too young at the time of his death to have had the benefit of much business training under him, they have inherited his aptitude therefor, as the condition of their land and the excellent routine along which their work is conducted give evidence. The management is worthy of older heads, and is undergoing constant improvement in the hands of these alert young men, whose industry alone would insure large returns. Though Domingo Zanone, who is represented elsewhere in this history, was so sincere a Democrat, both the sons are Republicans on purely political questions, experience having proven to them that the principles of the latter party are for the best interests of the great majority of the people of our country.
