THE MANY SIGHTS
OF GAY HAVANA
Center of llic Most Stirring History of
the Present Century. ,
IT IS A WELL FORTIFIED TOWN
Also a Thoroughly Representative.

Havnna Is a nloturefuiuo llttlo city
that hns been the center, durlnt: this
century, of some of the worhl'H most
stirring- history. It Is a FolentKlcnlly and
well-fortllled town, occupying a penin
sula lying east and west and terminat
ing: in the Mono headland. Tlip city
commands the entrance to the harbor,
which Is scaiculy 370 feet wide at Its
neck. Just opposite the town on the oth
er side of the exquisitely beautiful
little bay liw the fortified hills of the
Cabanos, whose tuns produce a cross
lire with those of Foit Piluclpe, which
commands the city on Its west side.
There are other line military works
Burroundlnff the harbor, so that, as far
us coast defense iroes, Havana need
have no fear.
yavana Is a city thoroughly repre
sentative of the Island. It Is Cuban,
and nothing else. It has long been reck
oned the eighth commetclal city of
the world. Motro Castle, with Its Dahl
gren guns peeping out through the yel
low stones, and Its tall sentinel light
house, stands gunrd over the narrow
entrance of the haibor; the battery of
La Punta on the opposite shore ans
wering to the Morro. It Is a proud and
strong tort, but Its defense Is merely
a matter of sentiment With such ar
mament as Havana has, an Invading
fleet could be held out of the bay. The
castle Is re-enforced by the long range
of cannon and barracks on the city
side, and the massive fortress of the
Cabanos crowning the hill behind the
Mono. All these are decorated with
the red and yellow (lag of Spjaln. So
many strong fortifications show how
Impoitant the home government re
gards the place.
The harbor of Havana compares fa
vorably with the most famous In the
world. Infinitely more picturesque than
New York Hay, It Is much livelier In
maritime Interest than that of the Gol
den Gate. The bay Is shaped like a hu
man hand outsti etched, with the wrist
as the entrance. It is populous with
ships from almost every nation on
earth. The one Idea it Impresses Is that
of activity. European and American
mall steatneis come and go dally.
Coasting steamers and the boats of the
regular lines from Mexico and the
Islands of the Carrlbbean seek the bay,
and great ferries ply between the docks
of the city and the Heglna shores.
There Is also a lleet of sailing boats,
yachts gathered from all over the
world, row boats, and what not In the
PLEASING OR IRRITATING.
The city Itself Is pleasing or Irritating
to the newcomer according to the spirit
that may possess him at the time of his
ai rival. Hut all travelers agree on one
point they universally declare it to be
one of the nolselest, liveliest, pell-mell,
happy-go-lucky, wide-awake, clamor
ous, dangerous towns In existence. The
great Humboldt said of It as he enter
ed It from the bay that It was the gay
est and most picturesque sight In all
It Is certainly not American, and yet
there Is nothing like It In Europe. It is,
as has been said above, Intensely Cu
ban, and a tjpe of Itself. In a general
view the town presents churches,
cathedrals and other structures that
force themselves Into prominence
against the background of less Impos
ing houses. There Is nothing In this
great extent of public buldings that
strikes one as being specially valuable
from an architectural point of view,
and even If there were Its beauty would
be entirely subordinated by a colossal
prison near the shore, which was bulit
for the purpose of having a capacity
to lodge with ease a matter of 5,000 prls
oneis at a time.
The city is divided Into two paits,
called the Intramural, or old town,
which lies between the bay and the site
of the ancient walls which have fallen
Into decay and have been used for an
upbuilding of the new city, and the
extramural town, consisting of the new
city, which lies beyond the site of
the old walls and Is more or less mod
em In its architecture. The streets of
the old town are laid out In fairly
legular order, and are pretty well
paved. But these thoroughfares are
nanow In the extreme, with sidewalks
barely wide enough for one pedestrian.
The streets of the new city, although
laid only in macadam, are wider, airier
and fringed on either side with pretty
palm ttees, giving the town a garden-like
The architecture of the dwelling
houses Is heavy, and this gives them
an appearance of old age which they
really do not deserve. The material used
In their building Is the porous stone
which abounds In the Island, and which
when first quarried, Is as easily worked
Into blocks as wood, but which be
comes as hard as granite when ex
posed to the atmosphere. The facades
of the houses are generally covered
with stucco, painted In all colors. Blues,
yellows and gieens are used indlscilm
lnately, and the visitor Is at once un
pleasantly struck by the bisszarc effect,
hut soon learns to appreciate thn nice
manner In which this apparently crazy
and unsystematic laying on of color
harmonizes with the glowing tropical
atmosphere. This coloring of the house
fronts Is not without a reason. In fact.
It has been found to absorb much of
the sun's rays, which, without this dis
advantage, would work serious Injuries
to the eyes.
There is no city in the world where
noise pure noise, made for Its own
sake and nothing; else reigns as su
preme as in Havana. At daybteaU all
the bells In the city tue lung furiously.
Church bells, lire bells, public bells arid
private bells unite with one accord to
produce a discord calculated to drive a
civilized man mad. Add to this the
crowing of game cocks, with which the
town Is overstocked for gambling pur
poses; the rattle of Innumerable cabs
and public conveyunces.tlu) clangor ol
tfongs on street car Unea. electric and
otherwise, and the general roar to
which ejery waking Ilnvenese adds his
mite, and the city, oven in the time of
, most slumberous peace, can well be
supposed to surpass any other town of
300,000 population in the world.
MORALS ARE LOW.
The population of the town is mixed
and the morals are very low. The lad
les are closely-kept and live In tropical
Idleness, the very natuie of their dally
lles encouraging Immorality and In
trigue. Mlsceglnatlon Is common, and
H U no rare thing to ilnd a Cubun fam
ily of good social position and consid
erable wealth composed of persons "Hint
in the United States would be classed
ns quadroons. The class of Spaniards
that have emigrated, to Cuba was never
of at high grade. Cervunlcs In his day
described the people o the. Island in
this Way: "Cuba Is a refuge of the
profligates of SpHJii, a sanctuary for
homicides, a nkulklng 'place for gann
bleirt and uhnrpurH, and receptacle for
women of froo manners. A pluco of
delusion to many and of amelioration"
to few." "What Cervantes' had to say
of Cuba In his own day applies largely
to the City of Havana in this. But of
course It Is not to be Interpreted too
liberally, for there are many excellent
families In the city.
Havana Is full of surprises for the
man who first Visits It, no matter front
what part of the earth he halls. Small
as It Is, compared with Loudon, the
slums of the east end of that great
Babel cannot match It in some thing's,
for instance, colored children of both
sexes, from the age of 8 and St yearo
down, are permitted to roam tin1
stieets, wander about as they pleas,
enter bazuars, shops, or stores ami
play In groups about the public places
In a state of absolute nudity. In this
respect, us in the matter of early ilng
Ing of bells, Havana Is unique umong
all the cities of the world,
The populace of Havana, nt least In
times of peace and this accounts for
Its disquietude In tlnfes of warIs es
sentially guy. This accounts for the
number and vaiiety of the oates, ca
chas, eating and di Inking places,
lounging places and resorts of every
color and complexion calculated to of
fer opportunity to idle and lazy men.
A recent visitor tn the Island, describ
ing the habits of the men and their un
speakable Indolence, says this of the
town's resorts and their habitues:
"The men luxuriate In the cafes or
spend their evenings In worse plnces.
A brief period of, the morning only Is
given 10 business the rest of the day
and night to meeting and lassitude,
smoking and luxurious case. Kvldenc
cs of satiety, languor and dullness, the
weakened capacity for enjoyment, are
sadly conspicuous; the' Inevitable se
quence of Indolence and vice. Tjtie arts
and the sciences seldom disturb the
thoughts of such people. Here, as In
many European cities, Lazarus and
Dives elbow each other, and an orient
al confusion of quarters prevails.
"The pretentious town house Is side
by side with the humble quarters of
the artisan, or even the nezro hut,
about which swarm the naked Juve
niles of color, a halt clad, slatternly
mother appearing now and then. The
father of this brood, If there be an
acknowledged one, Is probably at work
upon some plantation not far away,
while madame takes In linen to wash.
High life and low life are over present
In strong contiust, nnd In the best of
humor with each other, affording ele
ments of the picturesque,' if not of the
beautiful. Neatness must lie Ignored
where such humnn conglomeration
exists, and, as we all know, at certain
seasons of the year, like dear, delight
ful, dirty Naples, Havana Is the hot
bed of pestilence. The diyness of th?
atmosphere transforms most of the
street offal Into powder, which salutes
nose, eyes, ears and mouth under the
Influence of the slightest breeze.
Though there aie ample bathing facili
ties in and about the city, the people
of either sex seem to have a prejudice
against their free use. I was told of
ladles who content themselves with
only wiping the neck, face and hands
dally on a towel saturated with island
rum, and, from what is obvious, It Is
easy to believe that this Is true."
WELL SUPPLIED WITH PARKS.
Havana Is abundantly supplied with
parks, squares and public places. The
squares are ornamented with royal
palms, and here and there an orange
and banana tree, and now and then an
Indian laurel. The Plaza de Armas,
fronting the governor's palace, and the
Paiquo de Isabella are two splendid
specimens of Cuban appreclaton of the
richness and fertility of the soil and
the rare climate. The Parque de Isa
bella Is a picture of gay life In the
evening, and Is one of the beauty spots
The cafes are Innumerable and some
of them the equal of the best and most
exclusive restaurants in Europe or
America. The principal playhouse is
the Tncon Theater. Other places of
amusement are Payret theater, the Al
blsu theater and the Cicero, Teatro de
Jane. The Casino Is a place of amuse
ment and Instruction combined, a sort
of atheneum. In which such ait as lives
In Havana Is fostered and in which
state balls occur.
The glory of the mew city lies In its
splendid streets and the well-ordered
vegetation that has been cultivated
along their lines'. The churches are
without number and aie enthusiastic
ally filled on Sundays and holidays. On
these occasions unusual demonstra
tions are Indulged In in the way of bell
ringing. No city in the world, with the pos
sible exception of San Francisco, is so
lavishly supplied with food products
as Havana. The eaith and the sea
render up all their best fruit, and living
The great Havana market Is where
the visitor opens his eyes. An upper
floor and a lower open on all sides and
under a roof. It covers a good-sized
block. All Havana is here buying Its
dinner and other supplies. There Is a
multitude of booths, containing fruits
of the tropics, fish, meats, leather
goods, Jewelry and curios such as only
a seaport mart can pick up. The hu

sit; Indeed, the majority of the citi

At the hotels, as at many private
houses, two meals a day are served
breakfnst In the late morning, and din
ner In the evening. Coffee can be had
shortly after rising. Wine Is fieely
drunk. Candles serve ns Illumination
when you retire, and cockroaches and
Insects peculiar to the bed are violent
ly familiar companions.
PARADISE FOR SMOKERS.
Almost everybody In Havnna smokes
cigarettes. The best grades of cigar
ettes are of pure tobacco and excellent
In llavor. Cigars are very cheap ordin
arily. Cigars that cost "two for a
quarter" In the United Statea aro
bought In Havana for $5. CO a hundred.
Other tobacco Is equally cheap, and so
men, boys und women smoke.
Even In times of peace civilians nre
scarce In Havana, Soldiers stand ut
every corner they aro the police. The
uniform Is the sume blue as thu ma

Holland to Reclaim 787 Square Miles
of Land Under Zttydcr Zee.
From the Literary Digest.
Holland has determined upon a gi
gantic engineering feat the reclaiming
of 7S7 square miles of land now lying
under the Zuyder Zee. Eight hundred
years ago all of Holland contained but
COO square miles of land, or less than
one-third the nrea of the state of Dela
ware. Gradually, by means of great
dykes, land has been leclalmed until
the present area Is nearly 13,000 square
miles. This Is more than twenty times
the original area. The new work In
volves the construction of a dam twenty-seven
miles In length. The line will
tun from a point near Helder, which is
north of Amsterdam, to the island of
Wlerlngen. Then from the east end of
the Island which Is ten miles long, It
will extend eastward to the mainland,
connecting at a point just south of
Workum. The dyke will measure 3:
feet at the base, tapering to S at the
Tho first task is the driving of two
rows of piles on either side of the pro
posed dyke, forming a passage lifty
feet wide. Against these there will be
prfeked bags of sand until two parallel
embankments aie raised above the sea
level. The water will then be pumped
out of this area and a dry canal formed
fiotn shore to shore. Here on the bed
of the sea the dyke will be built of
solid masonry. Behind the wall will be
a bank of earth, bound with willow
twigs in a series of basket-work. Fwr
the drainage of this great basin colos
sal windmills are to be constructed 200
feet In height, with urms " feet long.
These will raise the water Into tho not
work of canals which will cover the re
claimed area. Nor is tills the end t)f the
task. The bottom of the sea is sand of
little fertility. Top boil and fertilizers
will be brought from every Dutch colo
ny, and in two or three generations the
depiesslons will be brought to the level
ot the canals. Where once the sea
flowed unrestricted there will bo green
gardens and farms, dotted with cot
tages and towns, and canals covered
with henvllj -laden barges.
Holland will have spent $30,000,000 in
completing this enterprise, but she will
have added JCOO.000,000 to her national
wealth, and will have demonstrated
afresh the moral ureatness of a people
who, In the face of such tremendous na
tural disadvantages, have the patience
to compel earth to yield her treasures.

Maclay Is known as the American
Thersltes, due to his sarcastic com
ments on men and events. Morris was
born In England, was treasurer of the
Confederation and a leading met chant.
Unfortunate speculations brought him
to the debtois' pilson and he died un
rewarded by the nation he had served
so well. Gallatin was a Swiss of good
blith and education, who left home at
an early age, wandered all over Amer
ica and finally settled in Western Penn
sylvania, where he was pionilnent dur
ing the whisky rebellion, not, as It now
appeals, as a law breaker, as was
charged at the time, but us a restrain
ing inlluenee upon the rebellious as
semblage. He was elected senator at
32 yeais of age, but was unseated on
the ground that he had not the lequired
constitutional length of citizenship. He
was immediately elected to the house,
where his abilities had'nloie scope and
he became an uncompromising antl
fedeiullst. Ills latter services as see

In the movement against the whisky
rebellion, was a bitter opponent of Gal
latin and the close friend of Washing
ton. He aftorwatds became governor.
William Bingham was at one time
piesldent pro tempore of the senate
and owned two million acres of land
In what is now the state of Maine.
John P. G. Muhlenberg was the fa
mous preacher-colonel of the revolu
tion. He declined his seat In the sen
ate to become collector of Internal reve
nue for this district under Jefferson,
and was af terwurd collector of the port.
Dr. George Logan was one of the most
distinguished of American citizens. He
attempted, while in France in 179S, to
bring about a reconciliation on his own
account. His well-meant and unsolic
ited services were not appreciated and
congiess passed a law to prevent a te
currenco of such an attempt.

shed by Tyler over the defeat of Clay
for the nomination that he nominated
Tyler for vice-president and he was
selected by the convention. He was
originally a Friend, but waij disowned
for his action during the war of 1S12.
He died at the age of S3.
Lowrie was a Scotchman, who was
secretary of the sennte for twelve years
after his term expired. He founded the
congressional prayer meeting and tem
perance socloty and was prominent In
Presbyterian mission work to his
death, at the age of SI. William Find
lay is best known as tho governor of
tho state. During his gubernatorial
term he laid thp cornerstone of the
capltol at Harrlsburg and was after
wards treasurer of the mint. William
Marks came from Chester county and
had long served In the legislature.
Isaac D. Barnhard served In the war
of 1S12 and resigned his seat In the
senate in 1831. George M. Dallas, the
second Philadelphia senator, came of
distinguished ancestry, was a promi
nent lawyer and a close friend of
Jackson. He was mayor of this city
In 1829 and afterwards United States
district attorney. As vice-president he
gave the casting vote In the senate for
the Walker tariff bill, notwithstanding
that he was elected under the cry of
"Polk, Dallas and the Tariff of 1S44."
Without that campaign promise he
could not have been elected. Pennsyl
vania was enraged at his apostasy. He
was minister to England when the
civil war broke out.
William Wllklns had a remarkable
career. He was at one time a United
States district judge, got Pennsyl
vania's electoral vote for vice president
In 1S33, served in the house of represen
tatives and was Tyler's secretary of
war; was later a state senator and a
major general of the home guard In the
civil war. He died at the age of SG.
He was a brother In-law of Dallas.
Samuel McKean also served in the
house of representatives. Buchanan's
career as senator, minister and presi
dent Is well known. Dr. Sturgeon was
long a senator, but never made but one
remark In the senate, which was during
a debate on the compromise of 1850. He
said that any man who talked disunion
was a black-hearted villain, which was
more to the point than many speeches
of a day's duration. He was after
waids state treusuier and treasurer of
the mint. He died at the age of S9L Si
mon Cameron's career Is too well
known to need comment heie. He sat
In the senate at three different times.
James Cooper was one of the younger
senators, but a man of ability und un
compiomlsing Union principles. He
served long In tho legislature und the
house of representatives and was one
of the first brigadier generals of volun
teeis commissioned at the outbreak of
the war. Richard Broadhead, of Eas-

had a long career in congress and was
famous as the author of the proviso
bearing his name which prohibited
