TRIP TO THE NORTH.
Capt T J Hoover Visits The
Bowery, Columbia Universi
tv, Brooklin Bridge and
The Bowery, the "ghetto," or
Jewish quarter, the Libinese settle
ment, are all intensely interesting to
nsit and guides can be had for a
reasonable sum, who will explain
every thing in these places. It
in this section, that one may see
exactly bow the foreign element,
who flock to our shores live.. Indeed
some of them do not live in the
strict sense of .the word, they simply
exist in these crowded tenemen
houses, Think of twelve or four
teen persons herded together in two
small rooms. This is no exagera-
tion but actual fact, still. 1 am
told that all through the lower
"east" side, conditions are being
constantly bettered, through the
instigation 01 home missionaries,
the Salvation Army, aided and abet
ted by the health authorities, and
wealthy persons charitably inclined.
Indeed a few years ago for example
riieti-inf Uiwn as lPivA Pninta "
was famous as the home of crime.
It was not safe for a respectable
person to walk thror'gh' its streets
in day-time, without police protc
tion. But church influence made
an invasion, and the civil authorities
closed many of the dives, and to
day there is a cleanly neighborhood,
with a prosperous mission church,
and respectable ceoule livinir within
its precints. The famous "bowery
or street of cheap stores, ill-fumed
lodging houses, low-class amuse
ments, and resorts of all the "tough"
characters, is fast loosing much of
its evil taint, but of course in a
oity of such size and mixed popula
tion, crime will always be tampan
to a greater or less extent, and pov
erty with its crushing hand, will
continue to smother alt that is best
and good in thore who allow them
selves to be borne down by it.
In contradistinction to these
scenes, are the homes of the rich
the millionaires, and multi-mulion-
aires of New York's finauical and
commercial world. These are scat
tered np-town and are veritable pal
aces. Indeed I could not attempt
a description of them if I would,
but it seems to me that the actual
home life cannot be really there in
its truest sense, only great piles of
costly marble and stone, simply for
show to arouse envy, and hatred,
very often, in the breasts of those
less fortunate. Many of the prom
inent men and women of the stage
have homes in New York, also.
Flat and apartment life is all that
is left to the man of moderate means
and hence we find of late years many
people who are earning their living
in New York, residing in Brooklyn
and the near Ly towns in New Jersey.
In these places they may secure an
entire house to themselves at a nom
inal Qgnre, and not be crowded in
to three or four small rooms, at an
enormous rental, where there is no
room either for children or pets.
At the upper end of town we
find Central Park, New York's
pleasure ground. It is prettily laid
out in walks and drives, and here is
situated the great Metropolitan Mu
seum of Art, which contains some
of the nuest paintings and sculptures
in the country. Un a hill overlook
ing the Hudson river, and the fa
mous rock formations known as the
Pallisadea. faced hv a beautiful road
called "Riverside Drive" stands the
tomb of Qen U S Grant. It is quite
a large building, circular in shape,
containing an interior gallery, and a
crypt. In the latter place in a gran-
tn sarcophagus, rests the cotun con
taining the remains of the illustrious
soldier and statesman. It is a beau
tiful memorial, in a beautiful loca
tion, and impresses all who see it
The Columbia Universitv,a hotel
which cost over $12,000,000, the
home of that noble and estimable
woman. Miss Helen M Gould: the
building in which the first elevator
in the world was operated, a block
bouse used during the .Revolution
ary War, and the largest apartment
house in the world, are also to be
seen on an np-town trip.
In the afternoon we took the
train to Coney Islaad. This is the
greatest of all amusement places
that I nave ever seen. VI the hun
dred of things to catch the eye and
money of the visitor, 1 will say
nothing, but the place saemed to be
the great outlet for the New Yorker's
nerve force, and the freedom from
restraint, aud the utter looseness of
morals there make it a "stamping"
ground for thousands, during the
warm weather. It is pleasant tup
by boat alas, I am . told, but we
could not go that way on account
of the weather.
To walk over the great Brooklyn
bridge, is quite a journey and yet is it
something the visitor in New xork
should not miss. This great connect
ing link between New York and
Brooklyn, is made of steel cables
and hollow steel tubes, and is a fine
piece of bridge building. Thousands
of persons pass over it eacn aav,
either by car line, other mode of
conveyance, or walking. When one
is in the center, at the highest
point, one can distinctly feel the
vibration. It is high enough above
high tide, to allow of ships pas
ing beneath it. Morning
and evening are the rata hours on
the bridge, aod then the cars block.

it seems a though order never would

I Not content with bridging the
the rivers, latter-day progress, must
neeJs travel beneath them, and a
great work is now in process of con
struction, far below the bed of the
river. This is an immense steel
tunnel built to carry the sub-way
cars, and relieve the congestion of
the bridge. It is a most wonder
ful piece of engineering, aud the
workmen who are capable of doing
the work, receive very high wages,
and can only remain down a lew
hours at a time, fhey breathe
compressed air, aud work in a sort
of drum or compartment, each
piece being finished before moving
to a new section.
On a small island, owned by the
Government, at the entrance to New
York harbor, stands the heroic sized
figure of a woxan, holding aloft a
torch. It is an emblem of "Liberty en
lightening the World", was made
in France, by the great sculptor Bar
tholdi, and was the gift of the
French people to the United States.
It is1 seen the first thing by vessels
entering port, and is a inagnmcan
work of art.
The "gateway of the Nation", is
Ellis Island, and here under the rig
id eyes of the Government inspectors,
arrive daily hundreds of emigrants
from all parts of the world. If they
are found self supporting, or have
frieuds waiting and can show that
they will not become publio charges,
they are allowed to go on their way
rejoicing. But if obliged to wait over
for a hearing, they are well cared fer
at Uncle Sam 8 expense.

Salisbury, Nov. 20 The census
of Salisbury, which is now bein;;

the city's -new directory, shows a
phenomenal increase in population.
The count of government in 1900
gave Salisbury less than 7,000 This
of coure, means the corporate popu

continues that discovered in the
first half, there will be more than
12,000 within the city limits, and
and fully 17,000 with the suburbs.
And when Salisbury and Spencer be

the two will have 25,000 or more.

ROYALTY OF ENGLAND.
A Paper Read Before the Ran
dolph Book Club, Asheboro
In 828 Egbert, a direct descendant
of Cerdie, the first chief of the
country, laid claim to the throne
and from him as a royal source
every subsequent English sovereign
except, the four Danish Kings,
Harold 11 and William thcConquer
or have descended, directly or indi
rectly, down to the present time. Just
as the strong hand of Egbert was
needed to restrain the ravages of the
Danes, he died, and his son, Ethel
wolf, a weak and inedicient prince
was -chosen to succeed him, who
soon began bestowing a greut por
tion of the kingdom upon his son,
Athelston, and himself depa! ted on
a pilgrimage to Rome. Another of
his sons Ethelbold, joined a party
desirous of excluding his father
from tne tnrone ami civil war
might have resulted bad not Ethel-
wolf consented to a division of his
kingdom with his son. Upon the
death of Ethel wolf, his third son,
Ethelbert, was chosen to a share in
the kingdom. His name goes down
iu history as the first Christian
king in England, and it was during
his reign that the people first en
joyed a written code of laws. After
a reign ot a short period productive
of honor to himself and a blessing
to his kingdom, a still younger
brother succeeded to his place, who
soon fell a victim to the Daues after
which, the Good King Alfred, an
other son of Ethelwolf's was called
to the throne. Of him, too much
of praise, both as a sovereign and
individuil, cannot be said. Rightly
was he called 'Alfred the Great,
since he was the embodiment ot
whatever was best and bravest in
the English character. He came to
the throne in 871 wheu the Danes
were sweeping down on the country,
but he brought them into subjection
and forced their leader to sign a
treaty of peace, however, he had to
combat them again as they made
frequent attacks upon the coast, bttt
he constructed a superior class ot
fast sailing war vessels, from designs
made by himself, and with this
fleet, which may be regarded as the
beginning of the English navy, he
effectually checked a series of in
vasions, which had they continued,
might have reduced the country to
Considered as a whole, Alfred's
reign is the most note-worthy of any
in annals of the early English sov
eriegns, leiug markecljthroughout by
intelligence and progress. He hud
fought rifty-s-'x battles by land and
sea and had excelled most sovereigns
in his labors as lawgiver aud judge,
yet he found time to acquire more
learning and even ti write mere
books than most men of tinin tempt
ed leisure. His moral greatness was
first proved in jonqtiests over him
self, in tempering justice with gen
tleness, and histoty record -t no mere
ly human character mote ii"iir per
fection than Alfred the Great.

lie seems indeed to be the complete
model of that perfect character,
which under the denomination of a
sage or wise man, the philosophers
have been fond of delineating, rath
er as a fiction of their imagination,
than in hopes of ever seeing it re
duced to practice; so happily were
all bis virtues tempered together;
so justly were they blended; and so
powerfully did each prevent the oth

as if desirous that so bright a pro

Edward's son, Athelstou, was one
of the greatest Saxon kings, then
came Edmund, ard at his death the
throne was occupied by his brother,
his two sons being too young, but at
the age of sixteen he took the throne
only to reign a short period, it be
ing taken lrom him and given to
bis younger brother; lie was suc
ceeded by bis eldest son, Edward
II or the Martyr, but the enmity
of his step-mother brought him to
a violent death, aud hei son, tthel
red was then crowned. His reign
of thirty eight years brought little
but trouble to hansel t or his people,
and finally resulted in the throne
being taken from the S-ixons for a
time and being ruled by feweyn,
king of Denmark. At his death,
bis son, Canute disputed ths posses
sion of the crown with Edmund II,
better know as Edmund Ironside,
E'helred s oldest son, and finally
secured the murder of the Saxon
prince and became king of all Eng
land. Harold 1 succeeded bis lath
er and next came Hardiconute, who
was a drunken wretch and did nothi
ng during his reign worthy of men
tion. Upon his death-bed his half
brother, Edward III, the only sur
viving son of Ethelred and Emma,
came to the throue. He bad been
educated in France and was more
devoted to that country than the
one over which he presided and
most of the high places in court and
church were given to Normans.
At his death Harold II ruled only a
few months, he being slain in the
battle of Hastings, and William the
Conqueror ascending the throne,
though the crown rightly belonged
to Edgar Atheling, grandson of Ed
mund 11. From him came the oth
er three Norman kings, William II,
Henry 1 and Stephen. Space will
not permit a thorough account of
this period, but it may be said of
the Conqueror, he was a stern, but
just ruler and his conquest over the
English may he considered a victory
wou for advantage by a branch of
their own racs, rather than subjec
tion by a different one.
At the death of Stephen the
throne went to Henry II, son of
Matilda, daughter of Henry I,
which was the establishment of the
house of Arjou or Plantagenet.
He was hailed with enthusiasm by
the native English being a descend
ant of Alfred the Great on his
mother's side. It was during his
reign that such strife existed be
tween state and church which finally
resulted in the murder of Becket
Archbishop, of Canterbury, but his
reign may not be teimed an unsuc
cessful one. He established a stable
government and made all men feel
that a king sat ou the throne who
believed in justice and was able to
make justice respected. The cen
tral fact in the reign of Richard I
or Coem de Lion so called becaase
of his bravery, was his embarking
in the crusades. England gained
two important results from this.
First, a greater degree of political
liberty; second, a new intellectual
aud educational impulse. A broth
er of his, John, fell heir to the
throne at his deuth, but his reign
was not a successful one and he
was finally excommunicated.
John s eldest son, Henry 111 was
crowned at the age of uine. The
best description of his long and fee
ble reign might well be judged from
the historians motto of England at
thut time, "Woe to thee, O land,
when thy king is a child." In his
son, Edward, England bad a better
sovereign. Wales and Scotland
were conquered, and V ales remained
permanently apart of the English
kingdom, hut lie too plated a stain
upon this peri.-i. in his cruel and
unjust expulsion of the Jews.
Kdward II was the opposite o
his father, a weak aud trifling youth
who was the first of the English
Kings to be deposed, and whose
crown was given to Ins 14 year old
who was considered more ca
pa'-leof governing. Until Edward
III I came of age, the government
was nominally in the hands of a
council. He proved himself a sue
cessfnl sovereign. His reign ii
dirxtly mnected with the use of
nourishin commerce with the con
tinent, the hegiuiiiiig of r.uglisnlit
eratu e, the first work in English
pioso being written and uilliam
Laiiglmid was writing itid verses
about his vision of "Piers the Plow
man." John Wycliffeand Chaucer al
so came into notice but appeared more
prominently in the next reign
The most note worthy political
events were, the acknowledgement
of the independence of Scotland and
the rupture of Calais, which gave
an opeu door-way into trance,
