Special Correspondence of In tttxtko 8ta?.
Havana, Cuba, April 16, lf?a.
The markets ot Havana, aa well as those ot
other large Cuban cities, are undoubtedly the
j Quest in the world. Those or New York, PhlU
adelphla, New Orleans and San Francisco are
surely deservedly famous; but when one considers
the actual size, and conveniences ot the market
houses themselves; the countless necessities and
luxuries attainable aside from the actual food
supply, and especially the bewildering variety of
everything in flesh, fowl, fish,fruit,vegetables and
flowers, securable at any one metropolitan Cuban
market-house in any coastwise city, It Is only
^ honest to confess that the most noted In the
i l otted Suites fares but lily by contrast.
There are no places In Cuba more worthy of re
peated visits than the Uavana markets. They are
splendid affairs, at least two of them, in them- j
selvea; they furnish a rare spectacle of tropical
food and fruit products impossible to equal in
months of travel In the.lslaud; and thesceuesone
witnesses, as well as the people who are met, are
lull of pleasure and Interest. They are three In
number?1*1,!za Vleja, in the square at the inter
section of Tenlente Hey, Muralla, San Ignnclo and
Mercaderca streets; Plaza de Colon, near Parque
central and the Prado, and Plaza de Vapor, Just
wesi or campo de Marte, In tue new business and
residence quarter ot the city. Besides these there
Is an ancient market and plaza frequented by the
lanclieros, guadangros and oth-r queer folk of
waters.de vacations in old liegla, across the bay.
At the latter market you will flnd Cuban
metropolitan low ate Intermingled with the
rawest and rudest rorms of Interior existences to
}our heart's content. It is tue locality of all
others where the guajiro of the country meets the
lazy city lout on terms of the sunniest equality,
and while bartering Ills greasy pouches ol cane
leaves toddrr, chickens, eggs, and all manner of
Irult, exchanges valiant tales of country prowess
lor city yarns of street and sea, w hile quaffing
huge draltsof wine, flirting bravely with the
senorltas of all colors, or gambling at donlinoes,
loteria or tutti, wlih the abandon of a Spanish
grandee. From daylight until dark the old Kegia
market is a seething mass of these lowly tolk who
cnatter and bellow alarmingly; but th-y are all a.
simple-hear ed lot, as harmless as nouy, and as
happy as UUuy, which is saying a good deal.
the plaza vieja
must have been built a couple of hundred years
ago. It is in the very heart ol the oldest quarter
of the city, well down by the deserted Plaza de
San Francisco and the wharves, where the mourn
ful ruin of the church oi that name, and the
deserted archbishop's palace, mutely attest the
glories of a former time. The market Is small and 1
low, witu stupendous walls; while the architecture
oi all tne bul.dings of me locality is ol the most
squatty yet massive character. On every hand
are the century-old structures, each one strong
enough for a tort; while the pillared column-) ol
facades and supporting arches oi porches with
gigantic bases and entablatures are ludicrously
tremendous when the lnslguiflcanc ? of the low
buildings behind them are considered. Every
stranger who gets sight oi this ancient locality, in
former times the center ol the fabulous wealth
and business activities of the llavanese, is drawn
to ii again a ad again. Not only have age aud ruin
sealed it for decay, bui every present feature of
the ^ lace intensities the Impression that one has
come upon, as In a dream, a quaint bit of the
quaintest of thousand-ye^r-old Kuropean cities,
where all the intervening time and progress have
swept past, leaving everything suilveied and
silent, almost as at Pompeu and ilercuianeum.
the ctessils at the xakket

Toledo halt a thousand years ago. The architec
ture is more Dorian than that of ancient Greece.

old city's fortressed wails. They are extraordi

built as population and business began creenlnir
trotn the old quarters out toward the frowning LI
Principe and the pretty hair mountain, Jesu del
.vonte, rrotn its style ot architecture Is already
old in appearance. It is quadrilateral, two lortv
stories in height, the second supported {>?' mam
moth round arches upon pillars fully 4 ieet square
projecting beyond a deep and loftv peristyle sur
rounding the enure structure. I nderneath this
cluster all manner of booths, shops, diminutive
fairs and beggars. An Interior open court the
facade or whose lower story Is similarly treated
contains still another structure more lotty than
the encircling one, and this in t jrn shows pillared
rorticoes and galleries to the interior of the outer
ulldlng. Ttie floor of the great court Is covered
with massive stone Bagging; and within this open
space you will flnd every manner of Cuban coun
tryman; every salable product that here finds our
chaaer; and every grotesque outfit or beast and
Saunter with whtcu the food and rruitof the
land are brougnt la scrimped measure from the
hali-worked sltiOB or farms to the indolent con

Here upon a scant heap of lengua de vaca grass
are a brace of cochlnlllos, or little Cuban pigs, all
legs and head, their legs still tied with the same
twisted grass Just as they have been flung over
the rush poucues for iheir ride or leagues from the
country. The Jaded nag which brought them, the
Indolent human who owns them, and the black
and hairless pigs themselves are all asleep, aud
will remain so until aome purchaser awakens
them. Mere, again, is a group of goats, country
boys, and skinny ponies. The mother-goats are
tied to one pillar, the kids, which are bleating
pitifully, are tied to another, and the boys and
sleeping nags torn a sort or barricade between.
Presently a tat negr. ss appears, purchases a kid
demanding a stripping of goat's milk to bind the
bargain, flings tne struggling animal over her
shoulder, and disappears amid charges and coun
ter-charges of goat sand boys, and a perfect bedlam
ot bleatings. Here, there, and everywhere are
plies ot todder, pouches of oranges, pack-sad
dles ot roots, herbs and salads, pyramids of
green and ripe cocoanuts like cannon balls in an
arsenal, piles or panting culckens, groups or
shaggy donkeys, herds ot sucking calves, crates or
game-cock and snared wood-pUeons an i other
lorest lowl; but never an owner upon tils leet and
I alert for sales. All these truckmen irom the coun
try lie In the midst ol their belongings sodden as
the mendigos around the pillar bases of the chime
ful cnurcues. '"lake it or leave it! " is their un
varying tn .xim. Wltnin the booths and stalls of
the market the types ot indolence are not so
marked and aggravating. The stallmen are a
bngnter class, l hey have something of the alert
ness or our own marketinen; aud the shrill voices
ot the querulous mestizos women, the interminable
shrugglngs and ejaculations or approval or protest
at kind and price, the clang aud Jangle ol the
ancient steelyards and scales, and the merry
chatter ot a thousand persons of all color and
degree, add constant Interest to constantly vary
ing scene!
In or near this quarter of the city?over San
Lazafo and Caile Baluarte way?live the densest
and most hideous mixtures of humans known to
man. Plaza de colon is their market. The fiercest
of Malays, the most shriveled and repulsive of
Chinese, tne most hideous and ferocious of gen
uine Airlcan blacks, tne most horrible and aban
doned of wultes, luter-bred, and still more loath
some in startling types, all gather here. The
most terrible creations of a Dante's mind or a
Dora's pencil cannot furnish such impish group
ings. Among these the Chinese coolies are tue
most horrible. Eyeless, legless, armless, noseieas,
hairless, earless, or in some other striking way
maimed as 1 have never elsewhere seen persons in
the semblance of men, they seem as though they
had all passed through some awtul cyclonic con
vulsion of nature, wan lue preserved, as illustra
tive of the most hideous carcasses which may
still retain the human soul. And these ghouls
practically control this market. They have a
great Chinese theater within It. There are over
40,000 lflce them throughout the of Cuba.
But over at the splendid Plaza de Vapor market
there are different scenes and life for study. This
is undoubtedly one of the finest market structures
in the world. Tne architecture is similar to that
of Plaza de colon, though the interior is the per
fection of arrangement. AU tue stalls where
meat, fowl, ana fish are exposed for sale are filled
with great iron-trame j tables, which at certain
hours of each day are boaUy hoisted 'by steam
B?er to an elevation permitting thorough flood
f through steam-forced hone of the slanting
trenches beneath. The whole place Is a marvel of
convenience and cleanliness. It la located la tne
very heart of the "new Havana." and Its patrons
are wholly Cubans and Spanish families of wealth,
to?.n?er 0ax*8 '""J the great hotels like Gran Pa
?aje, Inglatera, and Teiegrafa. Underneath the
archeo porches, w.ilch surround the entire
building, are countless little shops and stands
with moat artistic displays of wares, reminding

Special Correspondence of The Evening Star.
New York, April 20.
A good deal is being Just now printed about the
protpbuity of Blaine's nomination for the presi
dency as a result of death's removal of Roscoe
Conkllng, one of the Maine man's bitterest oppo
nents. Roscoe Conkllng, however, since entering
into professional business In New York, had paid
little attention to political matters and held no
Idea or ever again taking an active part In public
affairs. Edward Stokes, of the Hoffman- House,
has t>een one or conkllng'3 most intimate mends
in this city, and In a conversation last week, ot
which I was a listener, Mr. Stokes told his auditors
thai Mr. Conkllng's animosity toward Mr. Bialne
had been almost entirely healed by the lapse of
time, during which both men ba^ been apart rrom
public affairs, an l by the mediations or mutual
friends whose position enabled them to explain
some things that were fatally misunderstood sub
sequent to tn-' memorable Chicago conv n'lon of
lsso. "Mt. Conkllng nas been entirely engrossed
In his work," said Mr. Stokes, 'Since he has been
in New YcrK, and has orten told me that Dothlug
could induce him to again take part In po.ltlcs.e
As to Mr. conkllng's financial position at bis
death Mr. stokes speaks with some knowledge. It
has been widely printed tuat the ex-Senator has
made so much money In his rew years of law prac
tice here that he is enabled to leave a considerable
fortune to his family. Mr. Stokes does not credit
this. He says that Mr. Conkllng has made be
tween twenty and lorty thousand dollars a year by
his prac Ice, and probably no more. His living ex
penses In the city were considerable, and his tastes
were extravagant, and what was left out or his an
nual Income was applied to liquidating certain
claims for which he was responsible. Mrs, Conk
llng, who has lived apart from her husband for >
some year>, owns a valuable piece of property lu
Utica. where she makes uer residence, but the ben-J
etlt which she will reee.ve rrom the d -ad states
man's estate will tie equivalent to almost nothing.
Mr. Conkllng paid off a large mortgage for her"on
the L%ca property about a year ago.
Two rormer Washlngtonlans of prominence are
now two permanent New Yorkers of prominence.
They are two colonels as well, and they are enjoy
ing themselves here hugely, each in his own way.
1 refer to Cot Robert u. Ingersoil and Col. Thomas
P. Ochiltree. coL lugetnOll pretends that he lives
here to pracUci law and attend to the marketing
or tils publications, but I have my aoubts. When
I see Dim, Jovial and beaming, strolling down
Broadway of an arternoon, I Cannot connect his
very paient expression of careless happiness with
my Idea of a court pleader or a pamphlet purveyor.
And ho goes everywhere, too, where there is reast
or reason or least ot terrapin, and surely no man
who gads from ulnner to rout and iroui opera to
billiards In the evening, and from club to hotel In
the morning, as the colonel does, can spare much
time for business, col. Ingersoli's Sunday even
ing informal "at homes" at his residence are just |
now very Bobemlanesque, and squads or bright
people, in evening dres-, morning dress, and
shaoby dress, climb his front steps rrom 8 to 12
every Sunday night to drink a glass or wine, nibble
a biscuit, and la k. And the talk Isn't so much ot
atheism, or agnosticism, and or heretical subjects
generally as is supposed by outsiders, but poilt.es,
literature, music, drama, and painting are the
things inost chatted about.
The other colonel. Tnomas P. Ochiltree, of Texas, '
Is a fixture at the Hoffman House. He came here
to ge> an idea of the beuuinoude and to mingle In
the high lire ot the metropolis, putting always. If
you please, the most figurative construction upon
the objective "high.'' When colonel Ochiltree
first dropped into sew York lie was considerably
laughed at for the persistency with which he en
d avorcd to cultivate every man and woman whose
name gets into print a good deal. Actors, politi
cian prize-fighters, men about town, the colonel
threw himseit at one and all ot them. So long as
thfy were people talked about, whether for their
ajriii or their scandals, they were the chosen or the
lord to the colonel. Now, however. Colonel Ochil
tree Is a welcomed and appreciated chum or more
than hair the talketl-about people in town, and be
Is acknowledged to le the baron Munchausen of
the times. To see him sitting In the Hoffman
caI6, with a crowd of actors, writers and "round
ers" pressing each other's shoulders to hear the
wild tale ot Texas llie or the spicy anecd <te of
French extraction that the colonel is telling. Is the
commonest thing In the world; and the coionel is
happy. He was an usher at a complimentary ben
efit performance given In Wallack's Theater to
Marshall P. Wilder last Monday afternoon, but be
didn't "ush" at aa He mereiy sat In a back seat
in the parquet circle and told stories to a big crowd
ot his friends, und with such effect that during a
most dramatic and wholly serious recitation rrom
the stage, twenty men in the parquet, suddenly
filled the auditorium with a thunder or uproarious
laughter that shocked the rest or the audience
and broke up the recitation completely.
The coionel had Just reached a climax In a
Texas story ot "Ihe Bull and the Blizzard."

A woman of the widest culture and most remark
able attainments died In New York the other day,
and her demise was scarcely noticed at all In the
dahy newspapers. Yet she has been ior twenty
years a writer of entertaining tales, scuolarly art
criticisms, and strong articles on social subjects
which have been widely quoted and everywhere
admired. But the credit lor all her literary work
has been given to her son, by her own desire,
aud he, a fine-appe .ring, well-fed man of tony
odd, has profited by the popularity ot uia mother's
work, and has been petted and feted, while she has
remained contentedly In obscurity, proud to lift
him into prominence by her grinding toll. She
began this sort ot thing when the son was a
student of Cambridge University, England, a score
or more years ago, and wrote his essays and
orations tor him for fear the boy would overta-k
himself. Her own splendid education and reading
fitted her for this work, so thoroughly, Indeed,
that ner son's graduating thesis at the university,
written by his mother, was talked of at Cambridge
for years afterward as a most scholarly production.
A year arter taking his degree the young man
established a literary magazine In London with
great eclat, and It was b llllantly conducted lor
two or three years, when It taUed on account of
recklessly-bad business management. Among lu
coutrluuiors wer Some of the brightest writers in
England, and some of tbe most popular stories
were those signed by the young man himself. But
his mother wrote tuem. Then the young fellow's
father died, leaving tbe family In rather
unfortunate circumstances, so mother and son
came to this dountry and established here
a periodical devoted to art, which soon took the
lead of its class ot publications. Tbe Bon's name
appeared as editor, and it was signed to > pec Lai
articles ot a high order of literary merit. But his
mother wrote them. The son became known
widely for the character of the Journal supposed
to have been conducted by him. and was courted
by artists, actors, musicians and literary people;
and, as he was a sclf-poasessed, well-bred, hand
some man, be made his way pleasant and easy
among those he met. Nobody ever heard that ha
had a mother, and nobody ever Imagined that he
was not the talented critic and writer he pre
tended to be. And so it ran on. The art periodi
cal was stranded by tbe Bon's lavish expenses, bat
his reputation as a writer secured financial back
ing for another literary enterprise, and after this
tailed, tor yet another, tbe mother doing all tbe
work and tne son securing all the cmllL At one
time he was quite successful la delivering a
lecture which bis motuer wrote for him. Par
three years past, tbe old lady has been au 111 as to
be hardly able to sit up, but she continued her
work for tbe son's last journal ap to almost the
hour of bet death.
