LL.30 p~ AROUND THE WORLD Dr. Simpson's Story of His Visits to the Countries of the Old World Treves (German Trier) has a popula tion of about 250,000. The town is older than I am. It was founded by Trebeta in Abraham's time. Trebeta wa9 a son of Ninu9 of Assyria and his stepmother was Semiramisr who was about the same kind of a stepmother as the late empress of China. He fled from her and kept Koinj? until he reached the Moselle. Here he found a prosperous country already settled by the descen dants of Noah. He founded a townr called it after himself and the name has been corrupted into Treves or Trier. When Julius Caesar came here more thuu 1,000 years later he found people who called themselves Treveri. The Romans made Treves their Frankish capital and it c*me next to Rome and Constantinople. I do not kuow of a city of its size outside of Italy with more Roman remains. Constantino introduced Christianity and appointed a bishop. In the course of time it was made an archbishopric and thrs ran on until the French revo lution. Near the railway station is a statue of Baldwin erected a few years ago. I do not know whether it was in honor of bis having starved those peo ple to death and having taken their castle whon they were dead or helpless or if they erected it on account of his kindness in building a castle for the widowed Countess von Stalkenburg. I tried to find a cabman who spoke English, but none did, and all pointed in a certain direction. I wont to a newsstand for a map or guide book, but I was shown the same direction. I asked a policeman if he spoke English, and he looked at me with a pained ex pression. He felt sorry for me. At least I could not look at any persou that way unless f felt sorry for them. Ho poiuted tbe same way. At last I went to the place that everybody was poiuting at and found a cute little bu reau ol information and my first cab man waiting for me. Tbe girl in charge gave me an English map and guide book aud gave me all the information 1 required; made arrangements with the cabmau to drive me to all the points of interest, told me to let her know if he overcharged me, gave any slack or if I had any trouble with bim of any kiud. She asked me if I had a hotel, gave me the address of oue near the station and told me to report any in civility, inattentiou or overcharge to her. I never saw a woman in my life that i liked so well as that girl. I went first to the Porta Nigra. This is an old Roman gate, built about A. D. 250, aud is three stories high and about 200 feet long, 100 feet high and 75 feet deep. They tell another devil story about this gate, but in A. D. 250 the devil was uot cutLing much a figure with the Romans. I am gettiug tired of that devil story. Twenty-four years ago Charlie Morse told me that a few winters before, he, Jack Fay and Capt. Jack McCormick had spent four mouths in San Francisco and that they had gone every night to see the "Black Crook." It seems that is one of the features or incidents of the play. Tbe devil promises to keep an old scoundrel alive as long as he turns him in a soul every year. I do not want to tell any thing that is not true aud I have rea sons for doubting the Treves devil OPEN AGAIN "THE LITTLE DOUGLAS" HUDSON & NELSON, Prop'rs' DOUGLAS* ALASKA story. The gate is of gray sandstone, held together by iron clamps. There is no mortar and it is called the black gate because it is blackened by time, dnst and exposure. People live inside the gate. The St. Pauline church is very old and was built on the Hite of a bad martyrdom under Diocletian. There is a cross in the churchyard to commemorate this. The old Roman baths cover several acres, but I had seen so many else where that, they did not interest me very much. They are brick. The old Roman palace is an interest 1 ing ruin, partly brick and partly stone. In 9ome places it is still three stories high. The basilicon is about 1800 years old and looks as if it had been built last year. It is 225 feet long and about 100 feet high and 100 feet wide. The in terior is all new. It i9 now used as a j prote9tant church. It was first used as a Roman court house, council room and 9tock exchange; later the arch bishops made it part of their palace. Much of the old palace still remains, part of it being used as a guard room or barracks and parts for ot her pur ! poses. The ruius of the amphitheatre are in teresting, but it was not so large as the one at Pompeii or the Coloseum at Rome. Here the christian emperor, Constantino the Great, used to enjoy himself in watching hip fellow crea tures kill or torture one another or be killed by wild animals. Two celebrated massacres were in 30G and 313 ? both under Constantine? -when thousands of captive Franks were slaughtered. Once the animals became tired killing human beings. Constantine ordered them to kill one another, but they re fused and each man ran himself through with his own sword. The cathedral is very old and very interesting. It shows a dozen forms of architecture. Twenty-six archbishops of Treves are buried here, among them our old friends Baldwin and Arnold. There are a good many relics, among i them being another nail from the cross land the holy coat. This is the coat worn by Christ up to the time of cruci | tixion. it is seamless and was bought by a Jew at a bargain from the Roman soldiers. But he could not wash the blood from it and disgustedly threw it in the sea. Orendel, the sou of the king of Treves, had made a trip to Pal estine, but was shipwrecked and forced to work for a fishermau. In the mean time a whale had swallowed the coat and the same whale was by good luck , harpooned by the fisherman. When it ; was opened they found the coat. Oren del saw that it was something good aud gave him all the money he had for it. The coat made him invulnerable. He killed dragons, iufldels and everything else he wanted to. The queen of Jeru salem, Breda, immediately insisted on marrying him. Soon there was trouble in Treves and Orendel was called home. He took the coat with him and straight ened everything out soon. He then re turned to Jerusalem, where he died j later, but he left the holy coat in Treves. It is shown about every fifty years, but it is claimed that it cannot be shown much more, as it is liable to disintegrate on exposure to the air. The cathedral was built on the site of St. Helena's birthplace. The Leibfrau erkirche was formerly the baptistry of the cathedral. It is almost circular, I contains many fine tombs, paintings and brasses. In front of the cathedral ! is the market place with an old city cross. The church of St. Mathias is just out side the city. It is one of the oldest churches in Germany. In the crypt are sarcophagi containing the remains of St. EuCharius, St. Valerius, St. Mater nus and St. Matthew. There are hun^ dreds of relics in this church, but I am ! tired of relics. 1 | Juneau Steamship Co. U. S.
