THE "CRESCENT CITY.
In Many Respects New Orleans Is Without a RivaL The ChlQnIton Iconoclast, Howcrrr, Is Hard at Work and Is llapldly Modernlztne Thoosht and , ' Action. Special New Orleans Letter. 'EW ORLEANS certainly is sui generis. There is no other city like it in the world. It com bines the customs of an era that has passed away in all other American towns with a progTessiveness that is surprising the nation. Its population, numbering about 300,000, is thoroughly cosmopolitan. Americans, Creoles, Frenchmen, Germans, Italians, Span lards and negroes live together in unity, f et each nationality has its special dis rict or faubourg wherein it preserves provisional customs, virtues and vices, rhe Creoles, descendants of the early French settlers who came to America vith Bienville some 200 years ago, are the "oldest inhabitants," and have, with jharacteristic tenacity, preserved the manners and traditions of their fathers. Not until very recently have the ecions of this proud and ancient race consented to meet their American fellow-citizens on a social level; and a,mong the elders of the French colony there still are scores who refuse to look upon the ''Yankees" as equals. The younger generation, however, have out prown the prejudice of their elders. Intermarriages are frequent; and these anions between Saxon and Gaul have, Us a rule, proved beneficial to both races and called into being a new type of American physically perfect, and combining the poetic temperament and impulsiveness of the Frenchman with the tenacity and all-conquering energy pt the American. That this estimate js not merely imaginary is evidenced by the fact that in the present recon duction of the city's affairs, calling IN THE COLORED QUARTER OF NEW ORLEANS. for an expenditure of many millions for drainage, sewerage and other public and hygienic works, this element has taken a prominent part. "With the completion of these won derful improvements New Orleans will unquestionably lose many of its dis tinctively characteristic features, among them its gutter-flushed and un sanitary streets, its historic cisterns and primitive pavements, which it will exchange for a modern water supply, healthful sewerage and years added to the life of each inhabitant. Up to the present time the city has enjoyed the unenviable reputation of being the un healthiest of the important seaports in the United States, has suffered from quarantine regulations which have di verted shipping, and has been shunned by tourists. In the future it will be OLD TILED-ROOF HOUSE. (Corner of Dauphlne and St. Philippe Streets, New Orleans.) one of the great export centers and, un less its citizens fail to grasp the oppor tunities offered to them by geograph ical location and inherent possibilities, the natural trade center for the Cuban, Porto Itican, Central and South Araer ican markets. Ten years hence the provincial New Orleans of to-day will be a memory. The clannishness which has for cen turies interfered with its real progress will have given place to local pride not based ou racial traditions but on the greatness of the city. Bearing this in mind, the traveler who wants to see the New Orleans with which Cable's stories and the echoolbooks have made him measur ably familiar must not delay tis visit to the Crescent City or he will be for ever deprived of the medieval flavor which lingers lovingly with all who have strolled through the already mori bund "French quarter." The old tiled-roof houses with their queer shutter doors are being sup planted by more modern structures, $nd but few of those still in existence rramons them that shown in the Die- ture, which stands at the corner of Dauphin and St. Philippe streets re tain all the features of the original architecture. The- old centers of French life, St. Louis cathedral and the French market, are no longer dominat ed, by the Creoles. They have been wrested from them by the Italians who live by thousands in the ancient dwell ings of the original settlers. The only custom which these Italians seem to have acquired from their French neighbors is an inveterate ob jection to sunlight and fresh air, for a walk of several miles, on a bright spring morning, failed to disclose a single open shutter anywhere. And the shutters to which this alludes are not mere blinds. They are made of solid boards, locked with padlocks and other safety contrivances, and applied to doors as well as windows. In summer the shutters are opened in the evening; in winter they remain hermetically sealed; and this queer state of affairs seems to prevail among the wealthy as well as the poor. The combination of odors which pervades these houses must be smelled to be appreciated; a de scription in words would not do justice to the variety of French and Italian cookery nor to the possibilities of the olfactory organ. , The portions of the French section inhabited by the better classes are char acterized by large gardens surrounding the various mansions which, though gray from age, reflect the importance of the people who dwell within their walls. Of all exclusive creatures' on American soil the upper-tendom Creole, especially if of the feminine gender, is the proudest and most provincial, equal in every respect to the high-caste "Brahmin who considers social inter course with inferiors and foreigners a sacrilege. It is said that some of these Creole dames, although born and reared in New Orleans, have never crossed Canal street, which is the dividing line between the French and American por tions of the city. But, as has been said, the younger generation does not view this tradition al prejudice with favor, and with its passing away must be noted the disap pearance of ancient superstitions among the lower stratum of French so ciety. In a religious way the French people of Louisiana have clung with marvelous fidelity to the Catholic ob servances of a century ago. They are still firm believers in the efficacy of amulets and relics, much more so than the Catholics of the north. A favorite pilgrimage of the young people of the city is to the old cemetery of St. Roch, wherein stands a chapel containing a marble representation of the Corpus Christi. In this chapel there is a large square table with several hundred tin candlesticks. At the cemetery en trance votive candles can be purchased, as well as diminutive images of St. Jos eph holding the Christ child. The common belief is that the burning of one of these candles, when accompanied by a prayer, will cause one's wishes to be fulfilled, especially those of a senti mental nature. The image of St. Jos eph, who, according to the tradition, had a warm heart for love-sick swaina and damsels, in order to work wonders, should be carried head down until one's wish has come true, the argument be ing that the saint, prompted by a nat ural desire to be placed in a more com fortable position, will speedily answer the prayers of the worshipers. Of course, the faith in these and similar manifestations obtains only among the ignorant, yet few visitors to the city fail to burn a candle at St. Koch's or re turn to their homes without an image of St. Joseph in a brass casket. Slowly but surely these ancient be liefs are dying out, and with them, too, will depart more of the quaintness of Creoledom. But one interesting form of population New Orleans will always have the negroes. And these negroes are the most shiftless and thoughtless of their race. Thousands of them live in such abject poverty and squalor in that part of the city which has by com mon consent been set apart for them that a truthful account of their mode of existence would not be believed by northern readers. Improvidence and utter disregard for future needs seem here to have reached the fullest meas ure. And yet they appear to be happy and contented, free from care and ab solutely unconscious of responsibility to themselves, their families or their country. The man who said that a full stomach maketh a glad heart must have had in view the negroes of the south, as nowhere else does the stom ach play so great a part. It is, in J act, the ruler of all things; and nothing could create any social revolution in Coon town as long as some sort of food was obtainable. The matter of raiment cuts no figure whatever. In fact, the less said about it the better for every body concerned, g. w. WEIPFERT. SOAP-MAKING' IN JAPAN. A Domestic Industry Tbat Is Increaif ing Rapidly In That Country. The demand for soap increases pro portionately wifch the development of society. The aggregate value of soap consumed at present in this country is estimated at about 1,000,000 yen, accord nig to the original cost fixed by the manufacturer. In early limes the peo ple depended on foreign supplies, and though the article was duly manufac tured here, still a Iictitious label in imitation of foreign soap had to be iffixed to it ere it could find a sale in Japan. Since then, however, great im provements have been effected, and -the value of the manufacture has consider ably increased. At present Japanese soap rivals the imported article, both in quantity consumed and in quality. There are some 60 or 70 soap manufac tories in Tokio, which supply the home iemand, whose output aggregates in value to some 600,000 yen annually. Other manufactories in Osaka and Kobe not only supply the demand for soap at home, but also export it to Corea and China. But while, as is evident, we need not any longer depend for the supply from abroad, in reality soap i still imported into this country, though not in large quantities. It is because the ingre dients of soap being always the same, its manufacturing cost cannot exceed four or five sen apiece. This soap is sold in the markets at prices varying from seven sen to one yen or more apiece. But these prices have also to cover the expenditure on wrappers and fancy boxes. Perhaps' there is nothing that so exemplifies th; truth of the well-known adage: "Em bellish your wares for sale," as soap. Customers do not merely buy for the sake of its quality; but they desire it on account of the beautiful, designs printed on the wrapping papers or boxes. Though such designs may be prepared in our- country to some ex tent, yet those that cost 50 sen to one yen apiece cannot be made here. This is not, however, a fault on the part of our manufacturers, because their in ability to make such designs is entire ly owing to the imperfect state of de signing and printing industries in our country, and it would therefore not pay Jur soap manufacturers to prepare these embellishments for soap under the existing circumstances. This is the reason why we are still obliged to depend on the supply of soap from abroad, in spite of the pros perity of our soap manufacturing trade. There is another question that may be raised in connection with it. It is, why do we still depend on the foreign supply of common soap, its manufacture being so very easy? Be cause in foreign countries it can be manufactured at a lower cost than here, where we must depend on the supply of original material . fror? abroad. Japan Times. VICTORIA'S ANCESTORS. Their Bones, Which Have Been Knocking? About for Three Cen turies, Collected by the Queen. Queen Victoria has just had the bones of some of her Scottish ancestors, which have been knocking about loose for about 300 years, collected and deposited in a tomb. It seems almost incredible that since 16S8 the bones of the mem bers of the royal family of Scotland have been lying exposed to the elements, all uncoffined and neglected. The tomb in which the queen has now had placed the bones of her ancestors is the old royal vault in the corner of the ruined chapel of Holyrood house, Edinburgh. The remains were all originaily in this tomb, except those of Mary of Gueldres, queen of James II. of Scot land, which have been added to the col lection. The royal remains first left their place in the royal vault in the troublous times of 16SS, when the revolutionary mob wrenched open the leaden coffins and scattered the bones of James V. and Magdalen of France, with those of yther royal personages, over the paved aisles of the Abbey church. For a cen tury or so the remains were exposed in the open to the elements and to the pub lic gaze. Shame at length compelled the authorities to collect the remains ind place them in the vault of stone shelves laid in the wall of the old Nor man doorway. There they lay bleached white till a few months ago, when, by aer majesty's command, they were carefully collected and reinstated in the restored tomb. The only coffin in the collection is that which is supposed o contain the remains of Alary of Sueldres, which was unearthed in 1648, in the removal of the Trinity College ihurch, to make way for the North British railway. Upon the entrance to the vault, which tiad hitherto been quite open to the air ind protected only by a wide iron grat ng, a door of light oak has been placed, bearing a brass plate and an inscription to the effect that "This vault of the Scottish kings contains the remains of David II., of James II. and his queen, ilary of Gueldres; of Arthur, third son f James IV.; of James V., his queen, ilagdalen, and second son, Arthur, luke of Albany, and of Henry, Lord Darnley, consort of Mary, queen of Scots." The inscription goes on to say "Jict "their resting place was desecrated n the year 1688," and that recently 'these mortal remains of her Stuart an cestors were reverently collected and mtombed by command of Queen Vic toria," Philadelphia Press.'

OLD AGE AMONG WIID BEASTS. Decrepit Animals Driven Out by Their Kind and Left to Perish Miserably. "It was an old story, read in my boy hood days,- of the valley in India to which the wild elephants went to die," said the naturalist. "When the elephant felt that his end was near, the story ran, he left the herd and went to this valley, where he waited for death to come. That this is true I would hardly venture to assert, though, as Kipling says, no man knows all the ways of the wild elephant. But the mention of the story has reminded me of the pathos that attends the coming of old age to a wild animal. In the National museum at the Smithsonian institution in Washington there is the stuffed fig ure of a buffalo bull attacked by wolves. One wolf he has pierced, with his horn and crushed to the ground; another springing from behind has seized him above the gambril 'with the evident de sign of hamstringing him. "In these figures is the story of the aid bull driven from the herd when through age he has lost the power to hold his own in battle with the younger bulls. His reign may have been long as king of the herd, but at last there came the time when he found himself cast forth, abandoned by, the others of his kind, alone upon the prairie. When the herd moved southwest at the coming of winter he remained solitary upon the prairie, or took refuge from wind and storms in some sheltered hollow of the foothills. It was a question only of time when the wolves should attack him, and then, fight bravely as he would, there could be but one ending. Through numbers and wolfish strategy, with ever-recurring attacks, they would at last pull the old buffalo down. "In the same fashion the wild stal lion that has outlived his power of beating all rivals from the herd is him self driven forth by some younger stallion to wander alone until, with the weakness of age, he perishes in the winter storm or falls a prey to the wolf or bear or cougar. It is a cruel and inexorable law which pervades all animal nature, except in the communi ties of civilized man, that the old and the stricken shall be left unassisted to their fate. "Forty years ago, on the shores of Sebec lake in Maine, a bulldog owned by a man named Moulton pulled down and killed a bear. A boat rowed by Moulton was approaching the shore at the foot of Birch mountain when the bear was seen coming down the mountainside toward the water. In stantly the dog leaped from the boat and swam to the shore, and he had killed tb- bear before his master could get to the spot. Ordinarily a bear would be a match for half a dozen bulldogs, but the mystery of the readiness with which this one vas killed was ex plained when it was found to be a very old bear, decrepit, in fact, from age. Lean, weak, mangy, he was picking his way toward the lake, perhaps to drink, when the dog, espying him, cut short the few days that might other wise have been left to him. "One of the old South African mis sionaries, Mr. Andersen, I think told of a lion that in Kaffirland walked into i church where a religious service was being conducted. The congregation at first was terror-stricken, but it soon appeared that the lion was helpless from age and incapable of harming anyone. Upon this two of the natives seized him, one by the mane and the other by the tail, and bundled nim out jf the church. Once outside he war knocked in the head." N. Y. Sun. A WOMAN POLICEMAN. She Is Younsr, Pretty and llra-re, and Does a Great Deal of Good work. Honolulu has a policewoman. Her name is Helen Wilder. She is a beauty, and the heiress to many millions made in Hawaiian sugar. She is 23 years old. Miss Wilder is a regularly appointed special officer of the Hawaiian police force. She wears a soft felt hat, on which glitters the silver star that pro claims her a policewoman. She also carries a revolver, and is not afraid to use it. She has made several arrests unaided. The honor of being a policewoman was not forced upon Miss Wilder. To be exact, she solicited it. The Hawaiian heiress loves childreri'and animals, and it was to protect her small and lowly friends that she asked an appointment on the police force. It was reported recently that the captain of a steamship that had put into port at Honolulu had mistreated bis children. Miss Wilder boarded the ship and found that for a slight offense the captain had locked the children in a stateroom for several days, keeping them on a bread and water diet. "To the astonishment of the, protesting ap tain, she promptly marched him down the gangplank and straight to jail. Recently Miss Wilder has come into the courts through her zeal as a "cop." She detected one Olaaf Hollefson, a street car driver, in the act of driving a- mule whose shoulders were bleed ing from a chafing collar. She com pelled him to leave his car and pas sengers and go with her to the police station, where she had him "booked" for cruelty to animals., Hollefson claimed that as Miss Wild r had no warrant the arrest was il legaL He claimed $5,000 damages. The jourts decided in favor of Miss Wilder. She rides a horse with the daring of vaquero. She handles the reins with .he deftness and daring of a stage Iriver. She swims and rows with the race and strength of a Kanaka. But wherever she is, or whatever she nay be doing, she carries a pair oi jandcuffs snap on the wrists of the nemies of children and animals.
