In ridifig from Philadelphia to New
York over the Reading Road, you
would not suppose4hat New Jersey u
the hot-bed of trusts, fur the State
shows up finely, but it is. The laws
of New Jersey are such that nearly all
trusts haye their headquarters iu some
of the cities and are incorporated un
der the laws of the State of New Jer
sey. Before" reaching Jersey City you
begin to see how the swarming mil
lions of people get into New York ami
out again. All the leading railroads
have double tracks. After 0 o'clock
in the "morning trains run into Jersey
City one minute apart. Immense
ferry boats ply between tVhat city and
New . York. We arrived iu Jersey City
at 0 o'clock in the afternoon. For
thirty miles outgoing trains passed
out train every minute. The people
were going home. Tens of thousand
do business iu New York and Brook
lyn, but live many miles out along the
railroads and steamboat lines. In ap
proaching New York from any direc
tion youjare in a perpetual cityT so it
is hard to tell when yon really. get into
the city proper. However, yon cross
the Hudson river and get on Long Is
land, upon which the city is built.
The population of New York is over
2,000,0()0; Brooklyn, 1,200,000. Noth
ing but East River divides the two cit-
11 ill 111
-re-1, wnicn are connected oy DiooKiyn
Bridge. .Jersey City, Hobcken and
other cities are near by. So, in a space
of say 50 miles square, there is ;i pop
ulation of lit arl v 5,000,000 soul. New
York City entirely covers Manhattn Is
huidfwhich is Hf ti eii miles in length' and
from one and a half to tim e miles in
width. Evrrv available foot of : pace,
except streets and -parks, is covered with
buildings fro:u three to twenty-two
stories high. They are-built of brick,
granite, brown stone or nnu'ble. Iu
the old part of the city the buildings
are not very tall,- except a few new
ones. In the vicinity of the City Hall
and Bitterv the buildings look ancient.
Above 10th street there U a change.
All sorts of fine buildings loom up.
-Nearly all the buildings are occupied
by offices, stores or some kind of busi
ness concerns in the first stories. The
uppr floors is as full of people as a
hive is of bees. There is a small sec
tion of the city.conta'.ningljrown stone
residences, but they belong to the very
wealthy. A majority of the 2,000,000
people live in the upper stories of build
ings or in "flats." Many of these flats
are from ten to fourteen stones lrigh.
Apartments on the first and second
floors rent very high, but the upper
rooms are cheaper, borne of the "flats
are very 'stylish. But many who do
business in New York live miles awav.
They come in every morning and go
out again in time for slipper.
liie question is how do this immense
number of people get. about in such a
small space? New York has 400,000
more people than the entire btate of
North Carolina. Put all the people
in North Carolina in a space the size
of New York and they couldn t move!
a whee . New ork peoplp are accus-:
turned to being crowded. Many of the
streets nare aouole street .car lines, the
cars run in 50 feet of each other both
ways. They are always full. On
Fifth Avenue, Bowery und other streets
there are two lines of elevated trains
and also surface-car lines. They run
the entire length of the city. Vyith
out the elevated roads the swarajs of
humanitv could not be kept in motion.
Suppose you live in the lower part of
the city and wish to visit a person at
the ' upper end fifteen miles away.
You can go on the surface cars, but it
would take nearly all day to go and
come. But you can go upstairs to the
elevated road. Stations are only two
blocks , apart buy a ticket 'for five
cents, which is taken up before you
enter the elevated train, and in one
hour you can go to 155th street, only
-a few blocks from the upper end of
tr e city. For five cents, and in one
hour, .you have made a trip that would
require almost half a day if y'u went
on a horse car, or ifihade in a cab or
carriage would cost SI. So it is plain
that without elevated roads stagnation
in travel would result in New York.
In London trains run under the city,
but that is unpleasant traveling. ' On
the .elevated roads you are in the sun
light and can see the moving mass of
hurnauity iu the streets below and
look into the thousands of windows iii
the "flats" you pass. I rode from the
Battery to 1 55th street, came back to
GOth street and went inta Central park,
.went out at the Eastern side aud rode
down Broadway four miles.
Everything moves systematically in
SALISBURY, N, a, THURSDAY,
New York. It is a niistery how the
thousands of street cars, carriages, cabs,
wagons, ' drays and pedestrians get .
around. The drivers nre experts, how
ever, and they iieveri get frustrated.
The street cars go fasV but thy slow
up in time to miss some vehicle. The
streets are a solid mass of vehicle Vail
going thnr own way. They miss each
other by just a fraction. It is a rare
thingto see vehicles get tied up. Some
times, however, several street cars-and
two or three dozen dnyys, cubs or other
Vehicles get tied up by attempting to all
go in the space of one. But nobody
gets mad or fractious, and in a few mo
ments all of them go s uling on their
course. On Chamber street . is where
you will find the greatest rush. This
runs- along; the wbarf near the ferry
landings for thereat freight depots.
Drays are so thick that no one ever at-!
tempts to cross the street. '
Brooklyn is more closely built and
crowded than New York. At the end
of Brooklyn Bridge on that side there!
is a perfect pandemonium. - All the
street car lines center there, also ele
vated roads. I walked over Brooklyn ,
Bridge. It is worth the walk, for the
middle of the-bridge is higher than the
two cities and you get a birds-eye view
of them as far as you can see. You
also get a splendid sea breeze.
Thousands of poor people, who can
not afford a trip to the various summer
resorts nor even ta Central Park, go on
the bridge for a little fresh air. The
bridge is;one mile long. It starts back
a block or two in the city. The end of
the bridge is utilized and contains large
stores. The centre of the bridge is 200
feet above the water. The foot way is
in the middle. On either side of it ca
ble cars run one af.er another, fure on
them 3 cents. On the outside of the
cable tracks are the driveways for ve
hicles. Pedestrians and vehicles go
over free. The bridge cost.-eighteen
million dollars and workmen were four
teen vears building it. Four steel ca
bles, fifteen inches in diameter, sup
ported by stoi)e piers, hold the bridge
u,i. While iii Brooklyn I went to see
the tabernacle, Dr. Ta! mage's church.
It is a large edifice built of pressed
brick and brown, stone. An addition
now being built is of marble. Dr. Tt
nvigc is in Russia, hence did not hear
him pleach. I attended services at St.
Patrick's Cathedral, Catholic, not so
much for the service as to see the
church, which- is the finest in the
Aojjd, It cost three million jlollars,
and, strange to say, not n rich jierson
belongs to the church. It was built by
Irish servant girls and French maids
chiefly. Tbe contributed their earn
ings to the cause," to them so sacred.
The Catholics are a wonderful peoph .
Their devotion to their doctrines and
perseverance entitles them to admira
tion, if nothing else. New York has
many tine churches, bui. Brooklyn is
the. ''city of
t. link, about one thousand churches in
Near the New York end of the
Brooklyn Bridge you find the great
metropolitan newspaper buildings. The
World, Herald, Times, Sun, Mad and
Express and other great newspapers
are published there. To the green
country editor these offices are a great
sight. The Herald is the leading paer
in the universe, but for a young enter
prise the World leads everything.
When we remember that its owner was
a tramp printer only a few years ago,
it seems wonderful indeed. It made a
big strike by erectitig, near the .end of
the Brooklyn bridge, three years ago,
the" highest office building in the world.
It is 22 stories high. From the cellar
to the top is 375 feet. Several other
periodicals, among them Pomeroijs Ad
vance Thought, are published in the
same building. The World rents 149
apartments in the building to other
concerns, and still has room for its
are -s pay.ro slll the timP,
nc,ludinff nwsbovs. Several hundred
editors, book-keepers, printers, etc., are
employed right in the building. It is
enough to make we North Carolina
editors turn green to look at that build
ing. The World publishes a morning
and eveuing edition, and issues large
extras several times a day, amounting
to 370,000 .papers every day. The
view from the top of the building is
grand, ion can go up the intermina
ble stairways in about one hour, or
take one of the eight elevators and
reach the top in tive second-. The
building is made of iron and steel nnd
weighs 08,000,000 pounds. It contains
1,000 windows, 500 doors and enough
iron to build 30 miles of railroad.
Over 60,000 pounds of type are used in
one day, set up by about two hundred
Ufrri liters. Ten thousand jople go in
and out ot the building every day
merely sight seeing.
All the great dailies issue several
editions ier day. More than 300 pa
pers are published in New York City.
The secret ot Yankee success is in
reading. They are better posted than
any people in the world. They read
walking along, while eating, riding on
street cars every where. Every edition
of a daily or weekly paper is eagerly
seized and paid for just as a half
starved man would seize food. They
read the adyertisements everythiug in
a paper. If the people of North Caro
lina would read as much for one year
as .Northeriv people of all class, the
State would be revolutionized. Our
people ought to be ashamed to allow
the few papers we have in the S.tate tp
AUGUST 23, 1892
go along half starved like they do.
I made a tour of the Italian and
Ohiuese sections.! AbjuC 100,000 Ital
ians are crowded in a few blocks.
Many of them Hook fairly well but
others are badly dressed and have that
berce, desperate fipjiearance that iiidi-
cates vicionsuess land
anarcny. A trip
through that section is not eniovabiA
for it is attended by considerable "dan
ger. The incessant chattering of for
eigh tongues, the music you hear and
the sjell of decaying fruit all tends to
confuse you. The tstfe4ts and build
ings are swarming witi uncouth chil
dren and hideous-looking, nieu and wo
men. - ,'.
The Chinese look t more docile.
They wear their,, pigtails... an43 Chinese
dress, smoke opium joints ando pretty
much as they do iu China, They. are
largely engaged in laundry work, but,
as the shoemaker goes barefooted, they,
too, seem to neglect their own clothes.
The Turks are a tough-looking set.
They dress in their own peculiar style,
women aud men dress alike.
From 10,000 to 15,000 foreigners
laud in New York sometimes in oue
month. It is not strange that you see
all the nations in the world so fully
The police force of New York is an
army of fine looking men. There are
8,000 of them. The Broadway police
are rather dudish, dress fine, wear dia
monds and white gloves. Most of the
policemen-are gentlemanly and atten
tive to strangers. But it is the hard
est kind of a job for them to see an
open saloon on Sunday or anything of
the kind. Many of the saloons are
open on Sunday, though.
A visit to New York is not. complete
unless you visit Coney Island, the must
famous resort on earth. It is a city of
hotels about 12 miles from the lower
end of New York. There are hun
dreds of such places, but Coney Island
is the centre of attraction. An aver
age of 100,000 go out from New York
every day iu addition to those who
spend the summer there. Steamboats
carrying from, 2,000 to 3,000 leave the
Battery 'piers every half hour tor Co
ney. Music is furnished on the boats
and on the 1-daud. You go out by
B.xrtholdi's Statue of Liberty, which is
on a small Island at the entrace of the
harbor. The statue is 150 feet high,
mounted on a pedestal 150 feet high,
which makes a pretty tall woman.
Miss Liberty holds an immense electric
light above her head and "lights" at
least a small portion of the world.
Coney Ilaud is a land of hotels, beer
gardens, bathing houses, refreshment
stands, merry-go rounds, switch backs, J
tough people and respectable people.
One of the curiosities is a hotel built in
the shape of an elephant. It is seven
stories high. You can go up to the
top in an elevator and ride down on a
switch back that runs in a spiral form.
The beer gardens have a stage at tone
end. You can sit down, order a glass
of beer, cigar, or if a prohibitionist-, a
glass of iced milk, and while you drink
or smoke, can see a cood theatrical
performance, concert or dance. All
those tilings run on Sunday as well as
Satu.day. Another hotel on the.tls
land is being built of all colors of
glass. At night, when lighted up, it
presents a beautiful appearance. An
after dark ride from Coney on a boat is
a rare treat. The millions of lights in
New York, Brooklyn, Jersey City, Ho
bokW and Harlem, make a scene of
Among the numerous places of in
terest the Eden Museum is worthy of
mention. It has the finest wax figures
on- earth. Here you see military men
cf note in wax, almost as natural as
life. Some of the figures required
months of patient toil to complete.
Every hair on the head of the figures
was stuck in one at a time. You see
figures of the crowned heads of Eu
ropg, famous Americans, notorious
criminals. There are parlor scenes
with, perhaps, a young lady playing on
a piano and the family apparently lis
tening. You feel almost sure you hear
the music, so perfect are the ivay fig
ures. In one place a scout has been
caught and condemned to death. The
soldiers are standing with guns ready
to fire. You wait and expect the roar
of the muskets. At the main entrance
a wax" policeman stands guard. The
first is a notice, "Look out for Pick
pockets." An old ma.il and his daugh
ter are reading the noiice while a dap
per looking fellow has just relieved
the old man of his- pocket book. You
teel like seizing the pickpocket. In
another apartment you see Kemmeler,
the murderer who became quite fa
mous a year or two ago and was the
first man killed by electricity as an ex
periment. There is the inide of the
court house, the judge is passing the
sentence of death. Further on you
see Kemmeler just before he leaves the
cell, attended by a priest. In tlie next
ro m he is sitting in the fatal chair,
the real battery is there and the death
dealing wires are connected. Several
famous electricians are standing gazing
intently to see every result of the n w
system of disposing of criminals sen
tenced to death, known a3 "electrocu
tion," which, by the way, has not been
a success. In another place' you f-ee
the "Custer Massacre." Gen. Custei
and companions are in a hand to hand
struggle with the Black Hill Indians.
The"biood is flowing from the wounds
as natural as it can be, even if it is red
paint. In another a Malay has, cut off
the head of another with a cutlass.
Thefigures are as natural as life; tho
black brute is holding the head iii one
IihpiI and the bloody cutlass in the
other. A puddle of 'blood ison Hhe
ground as it fl.w3 from the headless
I nly: - Another realaftic tcene i. a
Widow peeping beside the cofKn of Iier
husband. Others are standing around
with sad countenances. Perhaps the
most natural figure is that of man
lying op the ground asleep. His shirt
bosom is ope u. By some mechanical
contrivance he appears to be breathing,
his bosom heaving as natural as life.
Another man is standing on a rock 5 u
few feet away, a gun in his hand ready
to fire. You wait in vain to hear the
crack of the gun. .The Eden Maseum
is worth going miles to see, fe .? ' ;
There are hundre4?stmimerTe
sorts in easy reach of New York, but
still many cannot go. The parks are!
ineir ontv retuge. Most of them are
small. However, Central Park, mid
way of the city, is several hundred
acres in extent. It is a magnificent
place. Streams of water run through,
there are bridges, drives, walks, trees;
rocks, flowers, ' statues everything
pleasing to tbeeye. In the menagerie
can be seen, free of charge, every ani
mal and bird that can be found on
jearth. Millions of dollars liav bpen
spent on this park, which is the finest
and largest in the world. One million
people go into Central Park daily dur
ing the summer.
New York funerals are very odd to
rural people. About 200 people die in
the. city every day. In excessive hot
weather the death rate runs as high as
300 daily. Generally from three to
ten carriages follow the hearse, but
exeppt the family no one rides in them,
unless some one takes advantage of the
occasion to ride out to Greenwood
Cemetery. The procession goes at a
brisk trot. This appears wrong, but is
not. At the slow, solemn gait our
dead are carried to the grave-yards the
corpse could not reach aiiy of the cem
eteries inside of a daygoing from any
part of the city. So they must bury
them in a hurry or spend a week at it.
I rode up Broadway ten blocks one
morning and met four funeral corteges
in that distance.
Many of the dry goods and jewelry
stores are magnificent. Everything rV
cheap. You can live as well in
New York on the same money as in
any sniall town, but you must spend
thousands if you get in "high society.1'
Most of the better class dress well, and
a great many wear diamonds. With
all the wealth and splendor there is an
immense amount of wretchedness. The
people looked healthy. There dudes
and dudines, but most of the men and
woman are well developed.
I saw the stock Exchange and the
wild men who make and lose fortunes
everyday. Wall street is a narrow,
unpretentious street, but full of wick
edness. From the number of pretty
typewriter girls it is evident that the
denizens there have an eye for bejiuty
as well as rascality.
It would require a large book to give
a description of the great city. Next-
week I will have something about
Niagara Fall and Canada. R.
Wm. Tiinmon's, postmaster of blayillc,
Ind., writes: "Electric Bitters has done
more for me than all other medicines
combined for that bad feeling arising:
from "Kidney and Liver complaint."
John Leslie, fanner nnd stockman, of
same place, says: "Find Electric Bitters
to be the best Kidney and Liver medi-
cine, made mo ieei uite a new man."
J. W. Gardner, hardware merchant, same
town, says: "Electric Bitters is just the
thing for a man who is all run down and
don't care whether lui- lives or dies; he
found new strength, good appetite and
felt just like tie had a new lease on life."
