SATIKIUY. XOYEMUKK '.. 1S8U.
Ill our boyhood now so many years
back that we may be pardoned it' our
memory is not altogether correct, we
we read a chapter of that great satirist
Charles Dickens, descriptive of those sad
scenes which touched his big, kind heart,
as he walked through the streets of Lon
don. A little ragged, dirty, forlorn ur
chin is seated on the curbstone, shivering
in the marrow-searching mist of a Decem
ber moning, warming his poor little body
by looking through the plate glass win
dows of an adjacent restaurant at the
red hot stove within, feasting his weary,
longing eyes upon the hot buns anil
steaming viands which covered the large
ample counters; and thus seeking com
fort to his poor, empty, starving, lit tU
stomach, in which no morsel of food had
entered for twenty-four hours. A big.
burly policeman appears and commands
the starving, shivering, freezing child to
move on. "Please sir," cries the little
one, with unpardonable lack ot logic,
"where must 1 move on to." The police
man stands aghast at the uncbin's te
merity: "How dare you ask me such a
question? Move on, I tell yon. Move
Yes, triends, Christian people, here in
Asheville, "move on" is what we all are
crying aloud against a class of unfortu
nate beings, too many of whom indeed
are to be found within our borders.
"Move on" has been the cry for many
years, addressed by me and by you to
human beings, fallen low indeed, but yet
just as much human beings, just as muck
women, as are your mother or sister, 01
my mother or sister. Yes, we men 01
Asheville, and manv of us know in our
inmost conscience that we are responsi
ble for the condition of some one or inori
of these poor girls, are yet standing iill
by, cowards that we are, and hear tin
command to them, "move on," while you
and I sit comfortably over our tires, ami
know that this order means that the
must be ejected from the only shelter that
they have on earth, and to be turned
adrift to go steadily lower and lower,
until we, good people, brave men, honest
gentlemen cannot recognize in them a
trace of the true womanhood which we
have helped to destroy.
This is, indeed, a problem, men of Ashe
ville, which faces us to-day. Our ma' iu
is a humane man, conscientiously wish
ing to do his duty. We cry out to him:
"Make them move on;" "Turn them out
of doors;" "Raid the houses ot ill fame;"
"Stamp your foot upon theneeksof thcsi
fallen women, and let them know that
they cannot stay here."
Stop a moment, Christian men; gentle
men, be reasonable ; look around you ;
has this evil ever been crushed in this
way? Goto Loudon and ask yourseli
has the orders to move on, which have
been repeated for centuries, stopped crime
there? Can any social evil be crushed
out in this way? Has this method.
which has been tried here, proved satis
factory? Is the evil abated or even de
creased? Do you not see that, on the
contrary, it is increasing continually. II
you doubt it, fathers, go with your boys
to-night, and your eyes will be opened.
Now, we ask you, where was the sense
in the order being given to the starving
child to "move on," until some place had
been provided to which he might move?
And where is the common sense of eject
ing these women from their poor houses
until we have provided them a place
where, at least, the effort can be made to
reform them ? Surely it is idiotic to have
a woman thrown out of one house when
we well know that, within a stone's
throw, she can enter another, which is
open to receive her, because she and the
owner, and all of us know that our boys
will provide the means to pay her rent.
Surely, friends, this is a painful subject
to talk about ; it is a disagreeable one to
write of, but to shut our lips, and to curb
our pens, and to close our eyes is not go.
ing to put an end to its existence. Let
us talk of it not in any other spirit than
that of deepest sorrow and most sincere
sympathy. Let us see if we cannot de
vise some plan nt least to ameliorate the
trouble. Let us see if some suitable build
ing may not forthwith lie obtained. 'ou
may rest well assured that true, sincere
Christian women can be found sjieedily
to manage it. Let it then be procured.
Let it lie comfortably, plainly, decently
furnished. Then say to these women,
after we have provided them an asylum,
"On earth peace good will to men
sang the angels on the birthday of the
Print of Peace, and their song reached
the depths of men's hearts throughout
all ages. It seems an ungenerous
thing to exult over a defeated can
didate, and The Citizen does not fol
low the example of many exchanges in
filling its pages with crowing shang
hais, but it hesitates not to express
its satisfaction at the signal defeat which
has attended Mr. Foraker in the recent
Ohio election ; not that it refuses to rec
ogniie the manliness of his act in
promptly telegraphing his congratula
tions to his successful competitor, not
that it takes delight at his personal dis
comfiture, but it looks upon this result
as a harbinger of better times, an indica
tion that the American people mean to
echo the prayer which tbje angels sang,
that they intend no longer to be in
fluenced or led by men who cannot n-
preciatc how lovely a thing it is for
brethren to dwell together in unity.
Mr. Foraker will be remembered as the
one who took such bitter umbrage when
President Cleveland contemplated the re
turn to the Southern States of the torn,
ragged, battle scarred banners which had
for years been allowed to mould in an
obscure corner of the army department
in Washington. It was not enough for
Mr. Foraker that' the South had sur
rendered, that she had returned to her
allegiance anil was ready loyally to sup
port the general government; that slav
ery- had been forever abolished ; all these
things were of no avail to bring him joy.

Many opinions widely differing are held

deeply and sincerely by his eloquence,

All Charleston virtually took part in

plain, pretty and handsome, young and
old. all joined the early evening rush to
the banks of that now famous Lake.

hour was a beautiful desert; everybody
had left Meeting street ; there was proba

the lovely environment of the Colonial
Common. It would positively require
the pen of a rhapsodist or the pencil and
brush of a landscape painter to convey
even a faint idea of the scenes to which
the city's guests were invited last night.
To the older generation the moon had
lost none of its ante-bellum splendor.
To the young folks and the others of the
present generation it could scarcely have
been brighter or mellower any place else
in the world than in Charleston.
