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

(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?

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. N. Y
