Nags Ukad Tavern, Chester, Au.
27. York was an old town in A. D. 78.
The Emperor Constantino was born here
and here he whs proclaimed Roman em
peror. The first English parliament was
held here in 1160 and continued to be
held here occasionally for 500 years. The
old Roman walls etill encircle the city and
serves as a public promenade. York
minster stands on the site of a Saxon
church in which King Edwin, of North
Humbria, was baptized on Easter day, A.
D.. 627. The length of the cathedral is
524 feet, height of nave 09 feel, and
choir 102 feet. A most imposing struc
ture it is of composite architecture Nor
man, early English decorated anil per- j
pendicular. This cathedral is the richest j
i j oil stained glass of any church in Eng
land, for the reason given in a former let
ter. The great cast window is the largest
in the kingdom with the original glazing.
A. D. 1405 8. This is larger than the
window in Gloscester Cathedral which is
72x38 feet, and they are the largest win
dows in the world. Old York Castle is
nowap'ison. In 1190 over 5K) Jews
destroyed themselves and set fire to the
castle in order to disappoint a blond
thirsty mob. Rtpon is sixty-three miles
from York, and six miles from Ripon one
visits the famo s Fountains Abley which
is the finest ruin in England. The abliey
is on the estate of the Earl of Ripon and
open to visitors for a small sum. The
abbey formerly covered twelve acres and
the rums now cover two acres. The
estute "htualey Royal" is mustbeauli
ful, with a lovely succession of small
lakes or ponds, fountains and dams, great
temples ana statues, charminsr walks
through the most luxuriant groves and
snruDDttry, hill and dale, vallev and awn
One can almost envy the earl his wonder
ful home, aDd wonder if he will ever be
reconciled to depart for a better one. A
stream winds romantically past the abbey
aaa suggests an unlimited supply of fi-ih
for the Friday fasts of the monks. The
nave of Ripon cathedral is beautiful, 171
feet long and 88 feet high. Some old
Saxon remains are shown to visitors. We
stopped at the White House inn, receiv
ing a charming hospitality from both
mine host and bis wire. These quaint
inns are a pleasing study to a foreigner
and their queer names are amusing and
attractive. Here in Chester we soe the
"White Lion." "Green Dragon." "White
Jgle." -Golden Eagle," -Golden Lion
"latch Inn," "Queen's Ilead," "Q ieen'8
Arms," '"King's Arms" and so many more
or quaint names. They are generally en
tered through an arched passage in the
center of the house, which leads to the
(tables in the rear. On one side of the
arched passage is the entrance to the
house, with a bar where the landlady and
bar maid dispense any kind of drink
called for. On the opposite side Is the
smoking room, or pot room, where chairs
or settees and tables afford the wesrv
traveler a place for rest and refreshment
ot the inner man. l p stairs is the "Com
mercial room," where meals are served on
call. The bedrooms are well furnished,
generally witb old fashioned solid ma
hogany furniture, excellent beds, mostly
feather, linen of the cleanest and every
thing as neat as a pin. The furniture
generally would prompt one to break the
lento commandment. Quiet always pre
vails throughout the house and all your
dealings are witu tne waiter and landlady.
The man of the hoase is seldom seen, and
never in a business way. Women and
children are seen in the pot room sipping
their "pint of bitter," but no noise or loud
talking. They come and go with the
least possible noise, and are served bv the
landlady and bar maid, both of whom are
shrewd business women, noiseless in
movement, neat and ladylike, often in
black silk, and attentive as possible. Of
course the swell hotels are different, but
your correspondent sees little of them
the charges are too high.
Durham is situated on the river Wiear,
which nearly encircles it a busy citv.
On the cliff overhanging the city stands
the old castle built in 1082. while close
beside the castle stands the cathedral.the
grandest and most massive Norman
church in England, built in 10731130
is, as has been said, "half bouse of God.
half castle 'gainst the Scot." The bish
ops of Durham bad a peculiar standing
among bishops, being prince bishop, and
in olden times they went to battle at the
bead of their armed men, mem
bers of the church militant, indeed.
Newcastle on Tyne derives Its name
from a castle built by Roliert.eldest son of
William the Ccnqticrer. We are reminded
nere or the old proverb: "Carrying coals
u iiewciume. wines ana ale are
abundant, and the manufacturing inter
est are great iron, steel, woolens.glass,
pottery, chemicals, etc.. etc. The river
abounds with salmon and other fish, and
we saw immense nets being drawn. A
talK with an intelligent miner on the train
Informed me that the mines are from 400
to 500 feet in depth the same varying
in wiuiu ana height, often not more than
eighteen inches high. The coal is ear
ned by bags from the mines to a central
point.then by ponies to the shaft. WHges
only f 1.12 per day often less. Great
poverty abounds here as in all coal dis
tricts and it was pitiable to see the wo
men and children on the streets in wretch
ed clothing and looking still more
wretched in face and manners. I visited
a public wash room provided by the cor
poration, supplied with set tubs, hot and
cold water, a room for mangling, and a
not room for drying, where women can
go and do their washing, etc . for two
cents an hour everything furnished but
soap. There are several in the city the
one I visited being the oldest and poorest
600 women a week accommodated
there. . What a blessing for the poor.
George Stephenson was born near here,
and here he made the first locomotive en
gine. The same engine No. 1 stand
ing now on the rail bridge on a platform
as one enters the city. An excellent mon
ument to him stands in a public square.
We are close to the Scotlinh border, and
the dialect proclaims the fact. People
are very cordial, and the word "Ameri
can" brings a pleasant smile and greet
ing to every face. I learn many an In
teresting fact about people and things in
railway carriage and hotel, and even on
the street The Yankee is Inquisitive,
and your correspondent is a Yank.

J. E. Montrose and family leave tod a?
for Rock Island, III., where they will
make their home hereafter. Mr. Mont
rose has leased the Harper house and
opera bouse at Rock Island and will
take possession the 15th of September.
The Harper bouse is one of the best hotel
properties west of Chicago and Mr.
Montrose has just spent a small fortune
refitting and refurnishing it, and he has
a host of friends in Lincoln who will
wish him the utmost success in his new
venture. Mr. Montrose was landlord of
the Windsor hotel in this city, and is a
thorough hotel man, besides being a per
fect gentleman. Lincoln, (Neb.,) State
Varty and Labor.
The usually well informed Peoria Trans
script has been induced to believe that
democratic orators are travelling through
this district telling the people that democ
racy is the only true friend of the labor
ing man. While it is not true that any
men are pnblicly engaged in such work it
is nevertheless true that the only hope of
the workingman will be found in the
democratic party. He need not take the
word of any man for that statement. The
facts will speak plainly enough. The
paper just mentioned, however, states
that while this is going on in this dis
trict, our representative, Mr. G-st, is
making a gallant fight in congress for the
eight-hour law. A gallant fight indeed!
The struggle ha9 been msde and the work
men know what they have secured a
hope held out in a promise that if they
will continue to wait something may yet
turn up by which they may be benefitted.
And in this connection it may be asked
why did a republican in congn ss opjiose
the payment of the workmen f Among
its strongest advocates were democrats
advocates who asked that somiching be
done for these men and done at onee
and plainly stated that the bill which hu
since passed was an injurj rather than a
beneSt. Iu what way did the re
publicans help the workinirnien by this
hill or any other bill? This should not
be difficult to answer if they have been
the friend to labor that ihev ciaim they
have. The alien bill, whereby competi
tion against American labor was sought
to be ameliorated, is eqiihlly had
and practically amounts to nothing
The only way in which the
farmer and the laboring man gener
ally have felt the influence r.f the repub
lican party has been through taxation.
They know there is a millstone nbout the
neck of each and struggle as he wiM, he
cannot save himself from drowning.
What else is this universal cry through
out the land for a reduction of the tariff
but a national denunciation of the schem
ing and heartless methods of the republi
can party for the bem fit of the few as
against the many. There are good men
in the republican party men of honest
ways and sterling character, but they are
not at the head of the government. TI.ey
would disdain to purchase power bv
means of deceit and the use of money and
consequently their efforts for a lietter
state of affairs have had little effect. But
there is an unscrupulous gang controlling
the nation's affairs a gang that cares
nothing for the toiling masses. Thej
make the laws to suit the trusts, the mo
nopolies, the syndicates, the manufactur
ers of certain classes of goods, and these
people in a few years become extremely
wealthy and their friends in Washington
who made them so are not forgotten.
They reap a handsome benefit.
It is not attempted to argue here that
all the member of the democratic
party are any better than they should
be. Individuals are much alike
everywhere and in every section.
It is to the theory of government
and the principles of the democratic par
ty that attention is here directed. It is
to the principle that all men thall stand
equal in the eyts of the law; ihst all men
shall have an equal share in the benefits
of the social compact. It is that no man
shall tie oppressed for the benefit of an
other, and that justice shall reign.
Yes, this is an old story, and it may
sound somewhat familiar, but after all it
cannot be too oftenrepeated, no more
than the texts of scripture. Old and fa
miliar as the story is the people seem to
sometimes forget its existence, anil go
blindly ahead placing men in power for
the purpose of their own destruction.
At every election the republican party
has pulled the wool over the eyes of the
people or a large number of them. They
always find it out a little later, but new
promises are made, and a new hope
springs up. And the people trust once
more and are again deceived. It is al
ways with the hope that a reform will
take place. Ami hope deferred mketh
the heart sick .
