Harrison a Coming Man.
CATES AFTER MORGAN
Search for the Man Higher Up S eem

By JOHN MARTHOL.
(Special to Tbo TimoB-Dlepiitoh.)
NEW YORK, March 28.-A gladiator
who promises "to make Rome howl" Is
daughty John W. Otites, lie has sharp?
ened his knlfo from Palm Bench to Chi?
cago and from Chicago to New York.
Its zip, zip has an ominous sound. He Is
out for the scalp lock of Plerpont Mor?
gan. That groat captain of Industry said
things of John, and John, like his com?
panion-picture, William S. Dovory, Is now
decorated with war paint and beginning to
"holler.", It will be a pretty war. Almost
is picturesque as tho descent of the great
Dovery on the Tammany wigwam.
? ? ?
Apropos of Mr. Morgan, I am reminded
of? his European collection of art treas?
ures. He possosscs objects of art In Eu
rppe.which have cost betwoon throe and
tour millions of dollars. These he do
slrea to bring to this country, and our
Federal laws exclude them without pay?
ment of duties ranging from one and a
half to two and a half millions. The Sec?
retary of the Treasury cannbt remit tho
j?ty, and these treasures remain abroad,
This Is a nice example of protective tar
'iffl . ?? . i '
A certain importer of pig lead caused
It to be run into the moulds, from which
It came out.as statuary, und It was in?
voiced as art. Lithographe came as art,
But It does seem that officials could be
appointed of sufflclont honesty and dis?
crimination to divide the art of commerce
from the sought-for objects of art which
add to tho wealth Of the private and pub
llo collector,

Congressman Francia Burton Harrison
has gone to the Pacino. On his return I
o?m told ho proposes to enter Into the
political field as an active worker. He,
doubtless; got a tasto of the smoke of
bloodless -battles In waging his light for
.Congress. He carried a staunch Republi?
can district by ,1,500 votes. He is a Demo?
crat, It Is always interesting to ?Tnd a
man ' entering upon a career with an
? aim to bo somebody In his country's his?
tory. Mr. Harrison' comes rightly by It.
His ancestors, havej, al ways been promi?
nent In Virginia. His'father, Mr. Burton
Harrison, Is well known throughout the
South, and the clever and charming'
novels and short stories of his mother
are known throughout the natloft; Con?
gressman Harrison can", be said to in?
herit a love for.publlc life, a high sense;
of honor, persistency, courage and ability.'
I n-enture to say that Mr. Harrison Is a
coming man in national, politics.
? ? *
? few weeks ago I wrote of. Gherarat
Davis. Some of his friends declared that
. "Davis novor again would accept pub?
lic office." Now they ull say that, Threo
times Caesar pushed aside the crown.
Ho, Davis, "would stick to his law," I
k'riow better. General Greene succeeded
-?in-having the.. Legislature add a Third
Deputy Commissioner" to the Police .Do-,
partirent, and the next day Mr. GherardI
Davis ceases "to stick to his In.???" and
pops Into the placo. Oh, office has charms
to sootho the ambitious breastl
It'would appear that our virtuous Gov*
ornor Odell In seeking to securo docking
.facilities for his lino of Hudson River
steamboats for a quarter of a century,
unintentionally, no doubt, dropped Dock
Commissioner Hawkee Into a deef) hole.
If Sergeant Cram, or Peter Meyo'r, or
Charlie Murphy, "tho wickod trio." who
recently presided ovor the Department
of Docks, had given tho same consent
or "recommendation" to a Tammany
leader, thoro would have been a riot.
What cries of "boodle," would have gone
up! In this case.a .virtuous member of tho
reform administration, with hopes beyond
lucre, simply wanted to do tho city a
good turn and Incldontnlly ohllgo the
Governor. It must not bo forgotten that
|Ur. Hawltos is a little out with tho Now
York county .Republican organization,
ind to oblige Odell '"was like finding
nanna :ln tho wilderness! . ?'.awkes was
Ike Caesar's wife, beyond suspicion; but
fills dock lease, like Joseph's coat, shows
he is Inclined to flirt with a dangerous
party.

I have been making a tour of the great
tunnels. One fact strongly Impresses the
lay mind. That Is, there seems to bo few
shafts to afford vontllutlon. The en?
gineers clafm that tho nlr In the tunnel
will be continuously fresh and pure. I
can readily see It will bo kopt in motion,
but G cannot understand how the bad
air, the air that has been pumped
through so many lungs and Is not forced
out of the tunnel, will be purified, I do
not hesitate to say that tho tunnels will
require ?? ?- elaborate Bet of vontllators
and Air pumps before tho trains have
been running thirty days.
The confidence of Both Low Is a beau?
tiful thing to see; It Is a harder thing
to understand. It Is offset by the confi?
dence of Tammany, Only one cloud
hangs ovor tho Rod Brick Tempio In
Fourteenth Streot. In It can bo seen
the figure of Crokor. If Crokor comes
home tho Democratic candidate will be
currying weights to tho wire and yet
with a chunco of winning by a nock.
If Crokor remains in Wantage the can?
didate will romp homo. Setti Intends to
make tho fight. He smiles not on I'lutt,
hut basks In tho smllo of Odell. not?
withstanding tho dock grab. Voting ns
he did against Jamos G. Blalno, he hns
struggled hard to find a hole In tho Re?
publican fence to climb through. He
sees It now und he Is making for It.
George B. McClellan, who has been an
inconspicuous Congressman for several
years, has hopes of being Mayor. That
ho will bo docile and "deliver the goods"
if elected, there Is no doubt, but his ca?
pacity for dodging legues, which might
have placed him on record, Impairs ills
popularity.
?et
The man who would make the best
Mayoralty candidate on tho Tammany
ticket, the one who would be certain o|
election. Is unfortunately one who would
not tlike the. nomination. I refer to
Randolph Guggonhelmer, who as presi?
dent of the City Council, was acting
Mayor of Greater New York .luring tho
regime ' of Iceman Van Wyck. He ran
beverai thousand votes ahead of his
ticket. Mr. Guggenhelmer has an enor?

The Bearch for the Man. Higher-tip
goee on without Interruption,. Blssort,
the notorious wardman, testifies against
Inspector Cross before, the Police Com?
missioner and witnesses frcjm "the red
light distrlot" are secretly,' hidden by
District Attorney Jerome, to be brought
forward at'the proper t|mov The Man
HIgher-Up seems, however, to be about
as Illusive an Individual as The Man
with the Iron Mask, He leaves his Im?
print on tho entire force, from the ward
man to the Inspector, and the levy on the
brothel, tho gambling house and the out
cast Is duly traced ' from Collector to
Inspector, but at that point the Man
HIgher-Up vanishes In thin air. In the
high altitudes which he frequents, no
question has yet led.
Good Mayor Lew hoars that liquor deal?
ers raise among themselves $3,000,000 an?
nually. ' He hears It is pesaed along to
tho Man HIgher-Up. It Is a tidy sum
and the Mayor would like to know if he
Is "stuffed" or whether it be true. And
Just because Mayor Low said ho would
not talk with thorn without knowing
whore the three millions go, they say
thoy will, show him. how it goes In No?
vember. It Is hard to be a smiling smug
faced? Mayor of. this j?potless town.

Sentiment ran riot when It placed all
brute creation outsldo of a boo under the
proteotlon of the Society for tho Preven?
tion' of Cruelty to Animals. Every wlntor
Mr. Haines, Its presldont, haunts the lob?
bies at Albany seeking and securing pow?
er. The result Is that tho homeless cur,
Ill-favored, unkempt, uncloan, voves at
will, snapping and snarling. Policemen
foar the vengonnco of tho society should
tho cur thoy shoot ? tlowvt prove at tho
autopsy -not to havo had hydrophobia.
They say "wo must know the dog- is
mad before we shoot him." Fathers seek?
ing, to defend their children are liable to
arrest If thoy kill a dog. In the suburban
districts nf Greater Now York, curs dash
nlinut 1n droves to tho terror or parents.
These curs menace the little ones and
yet the society Is Inactive and tho po?
lice apparently powerless. It Is a curi?
ous condition of affairs. Persons own?
ing collarless dogs are repulred" to pay
a license fee of $2 or a fine of $50; but
dogs that have no owners dash about
feeding at the swill palls and chasing the
ohlldron in tho streets. It Is estimated
that, 20,000 ownerless dogs live a charmed
life under tho protection of Mr. Haines,
NORTH CAROLINA
STRAWBERRY CROP
Prospect That the Acreage
and Output of Berries Will
be Larger Than Before.
(Hpoclul t? Tho TltneB-Dleputoli.)
WILMINGTON, N, C, March 28,?The
strawberry and vogotablo aarougo In the
two Carolinas Is on tho Increase, In
strawbbrflos tho aoroago Inorotieo this
year will bo noarly IG por o?nt, over
1001. j Tho acrougo on, tho Atlantic- Coast
Lino in North Carolina und South Car?
olina Is 0,474 3-4 acres. This oomprlsos
tho greater portion of tho strawberry belt
In the two States. Tho number of grow?
ers Is oetlmatod at 2,480. Many of these
growers employ from B0 to 100 hands dur?
ing tho picking soason and It ls'aafo
to estimate that 50,000 poople aro em?
ployed during the shipping season, says
tho ? Eastern Carolina Fruit nnd Truok
Growers' Journal. The Journal says It
Is thus easily to bo seen whut an enor?
mous amount ot money is paid out In
this eectlon every your that goes Into
dally 'circulation. Add to this ' tho sum
total of the amount roturned to this
section from the berrlos nnd vogotnblos
sold und tho wonder Ib that tho pooplo
of tho trucking district are not tho most
prosperous and Indoperdont on tho globo.
Tho flguros are astonishing.
Within tho next forty dnys or possibly
four weeks, strawberries will begin to
movo from eastern Carolina In car-load
lots. The Indications are thnt, tho sea?
son will bo fully a week nhead of last
year and the first car-load shipment for?
ward last Reason on the 2StH of April,
The vines tiro In god ehapo and every
thin? Is favorable for somo fruit of an
.extraordinarily high grade quality, Striv?
ing hns boon the order of the day for
some time and tho fields are already be?
ginning to present a beo-llke appearance.
The crate factories ure all running In
full blast and taken altogether tho out?
look for the Benson 1b most fnvornhlo.
The flelde have been white with bios
some. This territory furnishes the finest
strawberries In the United States nnd tho
berries find demand on every market.
Tho vegetable and Irish potato nrope
throughout this section nre up to the
average and bid fair to make a full and
profitable yield. Asparagus has nlrendy
begun to move from South Carolina ter?
ritory and lettuce, raddlshes, etc.. are
being shipped In largo quantities and Bell?
ing at good prices.
Reports from Missouri. TennosHoo and
Texas would Indicate that between the
floods and frrn.tcs the strawberry crops
of those sections have been practically
ruined. Tho dtimage is estimated at
from HO to 7S per cent. If. this Is-true
tho whole country must look hugely to
tho two ('atolluiiH end Virginia, for straw?
berries this senson ns tho K?stern Shorn
of Maryland crop la reported very much

COTTON MILL
.' : . '.,' ' r " ,,
Just over the Virginia Line
In Henry County.
RAILROAD ENTERPISES
Rocklngham County Vote? the Next
Month on. the Question of Issuing
$300.000 in Bonds For the Ma*
cadamlzing of Oounty Roads.
MAYODAN, N. C, March 2?.?Por
somotlmo past a' rumor has been cur?
rent In this section that a large cotton
mill was to be built at, the old Anglln
Mill place on. Mayo river; Just over the
Virginia line In, Henry oounty. A fine
water could bo developed there and It is
said the property hae, been purchased
for '\that purpose Tho nearest railroad
point 1b Prlco, ft email station on the
Wlnston-Salem, division of the Norfolk
and Western, about fifty mllee from
Winston and sevonty from Boanok?. If
this mill Is built, rumor ha? 'it that
the Norfolk, and Western will build a
?pur out from Price to tho alte, thence
along through Stoke? oounty, N, C, to
Danbury, touching the Iron ore eeotlon of
the Saurutown mountains and coming
back to their Une again at Walnut Cove,
N, C. Should this bo'done, a valuable
tobacco,' timber and mineral section would
be opetied up to the world. The Saura
town mountains are rich in minerals of
many kinds, covered with forests of splen?
did timber, .- and ' the oounty of Stokos
ranks uocond to none in the State In
the chewing qualities' of its leaf tobacco,
For years the people have tried to got
a road, and If the-matter Is, laid before
thorn properly, by responsible men, they
would doubtless vote a liberal subaorlp-,
tlon. Tho road In question would also
make Pledmpnt, Vade Meeohum and
Moore's Springs of easy access. All these
lie within a few miles of each other, and
tho health-giving qualities of , their
waters, backed by the pure breezes that
blow constantly from "Old Saura's" top
are unexcelled in this broad land.
Rocklngham oounty votes next month
on tho question of Issuing $300,000 in
bonds for tho purpose of macadamizing
Its roads, and It Is hoped the "fors"
will win. The plan Is to belt ,the coun?
ty with a road starting, say at Relds
vllle. thence to Leaksvllle, Stonevllle,
Avttlon, Mayodan; Madison and along,
the southern border back to Reldsvllle,
Then It Is proposed to build another road
from the northern boundary of the ooun?
ty straight through by the county seat,
to tho southern boundry and one from
tho western boundary straight through
to tho eastern, crossing the. other at the.
county seat. Other plans have been sug?
gested, but. this seems to be the most
feasible and to meet the views of the
people bettor than any other thus ' far
sugg?stod. Speakers of note and ability
will llkoly be engaged and an active can?
vass of the oounty will bo made before
the mattoV comes to a vote.
Tho County Commissioners have or?
dered the election to bo held on April
18th and the general opinion Is that the
bond lssuo will bo voted.
Another rumor .which bobs up serene?
ly every once In awhile, has been hoard
from again roc?ntly, Sometime ago a
charter was granted a telephone com?
pany In Spray, and said charter was
very broad In Its e'eope giving them the
right -to operate a iphono line,? build and
operate electric railroads and so on. It
Is now reported that the primo object
for which that company was organized,
was to build an electric rond from
Reldsvllle to Spray, thence to Stonevllle
and on by this place, following about
the samo route as the proposed maca?
damized road the oounty hopes to build.
This would be a great convenience to
tho people In this end of tho county, for
while we are looated on a railroad, It Is
hard for us to get In an out, as wo woul?
like,
It has beon a source of wonder to
many why tho Southern doesn't extend
the line from Leaksvllle, its present ter
mlus, to Mocksvlllo, where It would 'touch
tholr lino from Winston to Charlotte.
Years ago, the old Danville, M?oksvllle
nnd Southwestern which was surveyed
from Danville on by Leaksvllle to Mad?
ison and on to Mocksvllle, N'. C. graded
and laid the road bed all the way to
Madison and the matter? was then aban?
doned for some cause. Later the com?
pany that built the narrow guage from
Danville to Stuart, ran a epur from a
point on that lino about twonty-flve miles
above Danville to Leaksvllle, whore It
stopped and has remained to this day.
AlliAhis was before the present manufac?
turing town of Spray was over thought
of so the road was made a narrow guage.
Later, when Spray was started and tho
business began to take on considerable
volume, the guage was changed to stand?
ard, and the Southern took It ovijr, True,
the Southern won't let a fellow use their
mileage books on fhnt road, or on tho
ono running to Stuart, Va., which also
Is being mudo standard guage, but still
englnemen and conductors on thoso lines
get orders from the Southern station in
Danville and tho general Impression Is
that they belong to tho Southern. The
grade for the extension referred to from
Leaksvllle on by Madison to Mocks?
vllle Is comparatively easy, and doubtless
much of tho road Bed could bo ueod for
It seems to bo In good condition yet.
At Madison, this extension would con?
nect with the branch of tho Southern run?
ning from Greensboro to Madison. Then,
as stated. It would tap tho Southern road
from Winston to Charlotte, at Mocks?
vlllo, thus giving tho Southern vlrtuolly
a double trnck or rather two roads from
Danville to Charlotte.
Another thing, It would onnble them to
reach Spray from this end, without hav?
ing to go away around by Danville and
then back to Spray, as thoy now-do. If
you will take a map of this section you
will readily see whnt this would mean
In tho shipment of cotton Into Spray and
the Bhlpmont of all their products that
wont South,
