BILL ARPfiO.2 BIDS FAIR TO ECLIPSE
GEORGIA'S FAMOUS SILL.
Old Sampson, tht can beat
the world on "big bine?' that
can get up the finest county fair
of any county in the State, ihat
can boast of a many pretty girls
and fine looking men as any
county in the State. Yes, old
Sampson that never tires, that
always "gets there," has produ
ced a second Rill Arp, that bids
fair to eclipse Georgia's famous
Bill Arp. We write thus because
we are proud of anything that
North Carolina produces worthy
of exciting our pride. Georgia's
Bill A. p had better look well to
his fame, lest this literary sun
that has arisen in old Sampson
should darken his sun. Mount
Our readers of eours-e know
that the above refers to the au
thor of the articles that have
been appearing in The Cauca
sian under the head of "Samp

Andrew Carngie, the steel
king of Pennsylvania, who
makes several millions of clear
profit each year under cover of
the swindling called protection,
has presented his resident town,
Ylletjhany, with a Free Library,
costing a hundred or two thou
sand dollars. President Harri
son, whose election is to no lit
tle degree due to the votes bought
with Carnegie's money, went
down and made the presentation
speech. The papers are talking
of the magnificent and generous
gift. If I make $100 a ycar
(and what little I do get is hon
estly made) and give 50 cents of
it fur a public library in Clin-
on, no President would make
a speech nor would big newspa
pers nor little ones either glori
fy the act; yet I have done more
than he. Does the Ri61e not say
something about the mites giv
en? The farmer is the innocent
with whom the Protectionists
sport. He has been fooled with
a mystical home market tor
nearly a hundred years, and now
he is informed that there are
further welcome surprises in
store for him. He is to be bless-ed-with
a duty on barley, eggs,
dressed' poultry and nearly all
other farm products. His horses
are to be protected. Dear old
farmer ! How glad he will be
to know that if any one is fool
ish enough to import farm pro
ducts which are begging for a
market at home the improvi
dent man must pay a duty. And
this welcome surprise is to make
the farmer hilariously happy
when he pays his taxes on his
clothes, on his transportation
over protected rails, on his din
ner-can, on his agricultural im
plemehts, on his house and
barns. A few more such wel
come surprises will ruin the
American agriculturist beyond
redemption. New York World.

Aiitryville, on the C. F. V
V. V. Kailuay.
Capt. J. L. An try, of the boom
ing town of Autryville, or- the
Cape Fear and Yadkin Valley
Railway, was in the city on bus
iness yesterday. In a few minutes-
chat with him a Messenger
reporter learned that Autry
ville's boom is in a very healthy
state just now and that there la
most flattering prospects for a
live and prosperous town to
grow up there, A few weeks
ago there was only one store
there but there will be five just
as soon as the buildings now un
der construction can be comple
ted. The town has been regu
larly laid out into streets and
blocks. The main street will
be called (J ray stive t in honor
of the distinguished president
of the C. F. & Y. V.. while an
other has been designated as
Williams street in honor of Mr.
A. R. Williams, a prominent and
enterprising citizen of Fayette
ville. There is also a street
called Clinton, after the county
site of Sampson, atu1 there are
Church street, Mill street, West
ern street and River street.
A hotel has already been built
and opened for business, a pret
ty Raptist church will soon be
under way and a handsome
building is to be erected for a
high school. Besides all these
several residences have been
built and others will shortly be
commenced, so that the sylvan
echoes will ere long be awaken
ed by the music of the hammer
and saw as they never have been
before. The fact is the. prospects
about Autryville are such that
even a newspaper is talked of.
We aie informed that Capt.
Autry sold twenty-two lots at
$20.00 each last week and that
among those who invested were
Capt. A. R. Williams and XIr. F.
R. Rose, of Fayetteville, Major
T. D. Love, of Wilmington, Prof.
G. I. Smith, of Clement Model
School, of Autry, XIr. L. W.

bought lots are now congratula-
ting themselves as there has
been a very rapid increase in
values within the past few days.

a lot a few days ago refused $155

THE EDITOR SPENDS A DAY
AT CASTLE GARDEN.
How the Voyager is Received on
the Shore of the New World.
A few days since we were
running through our office desk
taking a waste basket inventory
of the pigeon hole accumula
tions. In one of them we hap
pened upon a reportei's note
book, which we immediately
recognized as one bought in
Washington City about a year
ago, while on our way to New
York to purchase our new print
ing press, etc. We were about
to throw It to one side, when
wo remembered that it contain
ed notes of several places visit
ed by us while on the trip that,
for some reason, we did not
publish upon our return. We
began turning the leaves. There
were the notes on the "Ruieau
of Printing and Engraving" at
Washington, which we publish
ed under the head of a "$5.00
Bank Note;" the notes on Con
gress, under "A Law Factory,"
"Rrooklyn Rridge," "Statute of
Liberty," etc. There w -re also
the notes we took on the U. S.
Fish Commission at Washing
ton, Greenwood and Trinity
Parish Cemeteries, Central Park
and Castle Garden of New York.
We give below our notes on the
latter and will give the others in
some future issue, when we have
time to write them up. Ed.
Editorial Correspondence. I
New Yokk, Feb. 11, 1889.
This morning, as I went down
from my room to breakfast at
the Astor House, a newsboy
called out, "World. Star, Time?,
Tribune,'" etc. I bought a World,
as i naa done eacu moinmg,

city's Itesovoir, River Side Park
and take a stroll on the Hudson,
while recalling the stories told
by the delightful Washington
Irving of the queer and quaint
Dutch along the banks of the
historic old river of more than
a century since. At breakfast,
the waiter, wha by the way was
a good looking and exquisitely
dressed white man, (I did no
see a negro waiter in the city)
1 called, anion? other things,
for potatoes. He brought m
the breakfast promptly, but I
did not see any potatoes. I ask
fl wllftrfi Wfirft H.ft r.ntfl.toe. Ha

and pointed to a dish with a lot
of twisted crisp things in it that
looked like lomr. thin strips of
fried meat. I told him to take
that stuff out and bring me a
?aked potate. He staid so long
that l got restless, l suppose
the whole hotel force was con
sulting a cook book to see how
to bike a potatoe.
I remember my paper, so took
it and began to kill time bv
reading. My eye happened to
fall upon the ship arrivals. I
saw that an immigrant vessel,
with jaw-breaking name, was
expected to arrive at Castle Gar
den that morning. I immedi
ately changed my plans and de
cided to see the foreigners land.
Presently in came the waiters
with the baked potatoe, but such
a potatoe! I was a re J, dry,
corky thing which our North
Carolina hogs would not e?t. It
these yankees could once taste
one oi our old-lasnion yams
baked till the skin was bulging
an over it with the honev run
ning out, it would be a revela
tion to them. I finished my
breakfast and paid for it, (for
the hotel is on the "European
plan) and put out to find Castle
Gaxden. I asked a policeman;
he said "at the foot o Broad
way, to the right." I lingered a
moment. He said, "are you a
stranger ?' I boweri my head.
"Going to meet somebody ?" Not
liking to be interrogated, and
to appear green at the same
time, I moved on toward the
foot of Broad wa j. There 1
found a kind of park, with the
broad ocean, or rather Iong j
land Sound, stretching out in
front of me. Overhead rushed
the p'jnpy locomotive of Ihe
elevated railway to the Rrook
lyn ferry, on the left. On the
right I saw a low round stone
structure that looked very much
like a fort, and which I after
wards learned was once used for
that purpose. There i a wood
en fence around tie enclosure,
and bv the way there are seve
ral other smaller buildings with
in. At the gate I was quizzed
closely as to the object of my
visit, but I soou succeeded in
convincing the keeper that I
was a reporter and that the ob
jects of my visit were legiti
mate. And now we pass through the
dootway in the old stone wall
of the fort, and we are in the
big circular building known as
Castle Garden. The first object
that confronts u is a telegraph
office, which we pa?s as we enter
the rotunda. A few immigrants
who arrived ear?y in the morn
ing are lingering here waiting
for friends. A lunch counter is
provided for them, where they
may obtain food and drink. An
exchange broker is present to
change their foreign money for
American cash. The various
railroad companies have ticket
offices here, and in the center of
the rotunda a counter is built
around a quadrangle, where are
seated the interpreters, who reg
ister the names of the immi
grants, and two inspectresses,
wiio are here to look after the
women and children.
On the wbaif is the office of
the Custom House iuspectors,for
the immigrant, as well as his
richer brother, is sometimes
given to smuggling. Upon each
steamboat that goes up to a
steamer to bring down the im
migrants are one or more inspec
tors, who go through all the
baggage, and if the duties
amount to more than 2 they
must be paid.
A small steamboat, crowded
writh passengers, comes in sight,
the Castle Garden bell rings,
and there is some bustle and ac
tivity on the wharf, for the boat
brings the steerage passengers
from a German steamer just ar
rived. It is a cuiious studv to
watch them as they pass up the
gangway and enter the Gar 3en.
Some of them look deplorably
poor, others are well-to-do, and
carry nice looking baggage;
many of the women carry chil
dren suspended from their
shoulders in shawls, so iht the
infants are safe, while the mo
thers' arms are free to carry
their baggage. There are more
men than women, and some of
the former are rather rough
lookiug individuals. After they
have entered the Garden we go
in, enter the central enclosure,
and I take up my stand by Maj.
or Charles Semsey, whose place
it is to register the names of the
immigrants as they pass before
him. The people come to reg
ister, and he speak to each in
his or native tongue. Eaci- im
migrant gives his name, nation
ality, age business and address,
and if these are satisfactory he
is allowed to pass on, but if not
lie is detained. Two Hungari
ans, mother and daughter, are
held because the address of
their friends is imperfect, so
they are sent inside the inclo-
sure. They evidently wear their
uational costumes short, full,
calico gowns and dark blue
aprons; lull white sleeves, a
pink vest, small scarlet shawl,
black velvet belt, and bright
colored handkerchiefs on their
heads. Roots like a man's, of
heavy leather, with small high
heels, complete these pictures
Many more pass by, an inter
esting procession, until they
haye sill registered. Three other
interpreters have been actively
employed in registering names
while the contract labor inspen
tors have been doing their duty,
