2sew York, April 5. A party composed
of seven Pittsburgers, including myself,
went out sight-seeing among the slums of
lower New York a night or so ago. I had
before experienced the exciting diversion,
with the guidance of a detective, but I am
free to confess that more new scenes were
presented this time than ever before. And
we started ont without a guide, too.
"We went down the Bowery, which, by the
way, is the most brilliantly lighted and
lively thoroughfare in the city. When
Wott street was reached we turned off and
entered into a street which was noticeably
void of electric light, or indeed any kind of
lamp to guide the pedestrian. On up the
street we went, now and then stopping to
peer into the den of some Chinese opium
fiend. There is a stranire sickning odor
which constantly pervades the neighbor
hood, due to the fatal drug and the cooking
of Chinese edibles. After visiting several
dens, where we had difficulty in gaining ad
mittance, we concluded to return and get a
guide. There is a certain class of men in
this neighborhood who gain a livelihood by
this very means, and he is a character you
don't see in day time. Generally these
fellows are ward "heelers," who have a pull
Eome way or the other.
A BOWEKT GUIDE.
The man we selected surely had a large
listot acquaintances on his list, for at every
corner he was greeted with a familiar "Hi
Billy." He was a big burly lellow with
deep et eyc which danced with venomous
glee as he would rap for admittance and the
door promptly open. It wasasourceof pleasure
to him to show his authoritv. Mott, Mul
berry, Cherry, and other such byways were
explored very fully. The penny lodging
house was one of the new features I ob
served. In alow, rickety building, a cellar
was utilized as the lodccronm. Around the
wall were stout benches filled with sleeping
"guests," who lazily opened their eyes when
we entered. In the center of the room was
a large stove, around which clustered on the
floor women and men indiscriminately,
wearily awaiting the break of day, when
they would start out once more to beg, steal,
peddle, or whatever their vocation demanded
of them.
Across the street we went and entered a
long, dark areaffay. "Keep to the left,"
said the guide, and as we felt our way along
we soon emerged into an open court, which
"Billy" said ias like the Whitechapel dis
trict in Loudon. The moon was shinine
brightly, and as it shone down
on this locality made the surrounding
more and more interesting, You could see
silent forms flitting about from door to door,
while now and then the revelry of some
urunivcn men wouiu emanate irom the nu
merous dens. Within the inclosure was a
veritable miniature town of the most motley
sort. There were lodging houses, coffee
"joints," opium dens. Cheap John stores.
Chinese drugstoresand heaven knows what,
all right within a stone's throw of each
other, and off from the main street entirely.
We got out of the place after witnessing
sights which were and are a disgrace to hu
manity. To one never having seen such
life, it is simply not imaginable that such
things exist. B'ut they do.
AN OPIUM JOINT.
Walking slowly down another narrow
street, we rapped on a door wnich was not
immediately opened. While we were await
ing to be answered a dozen forms of
Chinamen were seen to appear on
the street, and lazily walk away.
Then two girls, not surely over 17, came out
of the adjoining house. Then the door
opened and we were admitted. The old
Chinaman, who was the only soul at home,
said "all out," signifying that no one was
hitting the pipe. "Billy" told me that those
girls who just came out were Harlem people
who had come down town to smoke the
poisonous extract of poppy. The mere smok
ing of opium has ceased to be a novelty to
New Yorkers, and a visit to a "joint" is
considered a played out fad, but when it
comes to be mixed up with your own nation
ality in the way which we saw it, fullv
demonstrates that one-half the world doesn't
know how the other half live.
A detective told me many interesting
things receutly during a conversation about
thieves and their manner of plying their
nefarious vocation. Pickpockets are the
hardest set to deal with unless they are
caught in the act. It is often said there's
honor even among thieves, but the instinct
ive desire to touch a friend asserts itself
when an unusually good chance presents
itself. For instance, there is a gang of
the light-fingered contingent which frequents
the wee track at Clilton and the "Gut,"
who make a specialty of touching their own
acquaintances whom they know'have made
a winning.
FBANK HEKDIC VICTIMIZED.
The other day Frank Herdic, the pool
seller, walked quietly through the
crowd in the betting ring
with a $300 stop watch. "Hello Frank,"
greeted him from everyone almost, but when
he got out of the squeeze his chronometer
was not with him. It had been deftly
screwed Iron the chain.
Ed. Kinney and several other well-known
sporting men have been late victims. The
man who is suspicious of the "finger boys"
is the one who stands to lose nothing in their
hands, but the careless, confident man of the
world is the one who comes to grief by his
over-assurance in his ability to spot the boys
who live without working.
. wo p'ttsDurg young men, who, espec
ially lonu oi the actors, met a verv great
kurprise this wcekat the hands of a'gentle
manly mixer in a Broadway cafe These
two boys are very wealthy and travel about
lor the sport of the thing, and they gener
ally seek the company of actors in which to
spend a pleasant hour, and the festive dol
lar. So often were theyseen with the "actor
men" that the people of course thought thev
were professionals also.
THE BAKKEEPEE'S MISTAKE.
The other evening about 9 o'clock these
two gentlemen walked into the cale men
tioned above in which to slake
their thirst after giving the Broad
way people a sight for an hour
or more. The bartender being so used to
seeing them in his place with actors, was
surprised and said: "Why, what's this
mean? How comes it that "you people are
off so early to-night?"
"Why?" asked one or the two.
"Weren't you oa to-night?" said the im
maculate made man.
"On what?"
"Why, on the stage?"
Then the two laughed heartily and ex
plained everything, while the barkeen'
quietly murmured, "That puts the drinks
on me."
Several Pittsburg acquaintances of mine
have been in the city tor a week past, and
while here have been trying to see
everything visible in the city. Among
other things, they have been luxuri
ating in the magnificent Turkish
baths. There is one ot these delightful in
stitutions not far up town which is a veri
table arcadia in its equipment. It was
built by a millionaire brewer, who did not
spare any money on its proper fitting out
While one of the gentlemen from the
Smoky City was plunging about in the pool
otter having beeu rubbed thoroughly, he
exclaimed: "Oh, if we only had one of
these things home I would live in it."
His remark caused some little discussion
amone the remainder of the crowd, and the
general verdict was that if some person in
Pittsburg would expend enough money to
build a commodious and luxurious bath,
they would never regret the investment.
PITTSBUKGERS IN GOTHAM.
I saw J. M. Oakley, your leading stock
broker, on Broadway last night. He was
attired in evening dress, and looked as if he
was going theater-war.is. "Jack," as he
is familiarly known among the boys on the
Exchange, is a great favorite here, as he is
everywhere. He is a shrewd speculator
with judgment as keen as a dagger, which
is verified by the position he now holds in
the financial world. His house is perhaps
the leading brokerage establishment in
Pittsburg, while his New York and Chicago
branches are other places of importance. He
is stopping at the Brunswick.
The citv has been reasonably well filled
with good" Pittsburg citizens during the past
week. Among the familiar faces seen on
Broadwav and in the prominent hotels are:
George Shney, who has been here for two
weeks. He returned home Friday. Dick
son, the tailor, is over here purchasing. P.
C. Dean, a' Taylor & Dean, is a St. James
guest. Theodore Hostctter is also there.
At the Hoffman are T. W. Erwin and F.
W. Aran Osten. The Fifth Avenue people
are M. aud Mrs. Elmer T. White, John
Page Laughlin, Robert Wardrop, Mrs.
William Thaw and Miss Thaw, D. P. Eeig
hard. Jlrs. Bvron Painter. Joshua Ilhodes
and Miss Rhodes, M. A. Verner, James H.
Aiken and wife. Mrs. M. Laughlin and

recent guests at the Albemarle.

STOOD BI THE C1TI OP PARIS.
The Cnplnln of the Adriatic Denies the Re
port That He Refused Aid.
New- York, April 6. The Adriatic arrived
here to-day. Captain Roberts was questioned
about his action toward the disabled City of
Pans. He states that the story published is
not true, and is vouched for by one of his
saloon passengers, George O. Stearns. Captain
Roberts states that he laid by tho Paris six
hours, and that on the boat from the Paris
coming alongside his vessel he informed the
officer in charge that be would do all in bis
poner to assist the disabled ship.
He signalled the steamer Aldersgate and
with her proceeded to come up to the Paris,
and on reaching her informed Captain Wat
kins that he had spoken tho Aldersgate, who
was willinsrto tow the Paris to Qucenstown.
He also offered to take oil her passcneers and
leave them at Queenstown, not New York, as
has been incorrectly reported, aud even stated
to Captain Watkins that if it wan absolutely
necessary to save life he would tow the Paris
to Queenstown. Captain Watkin on learning
from Captain Roberts that the steamer Aiders
gate would tow him, signalled "Thanks, go
ahead," so he proceeded on his voyage."

A POLITICAL BOOK,
Written by Lending Southern Democrat,
and Intended to Convert tho North
Tbelr Iileim on the Itncc (loca
tion Given nt Lenatli.
Washington, April 6. Representatives
Herbert, of Alabama; Hemphill, of South
Carolina; Turner, of Georgia; Stewart, of
Texas; Wilson, of West Virginia; ex-Bep-resentativc
Barksdale, of Mississippi; Sena
tors Vance, of North Carolina; Pasco, of
Florida; Vest, of Missouri, and Messrs. W.
M. Fishback, of Arkansas; Ira P. Jones, of
Tennessee; C. S. Long, of West Vlrcinia, and
B. J. Sage, of Louisiana, have collectively
written, and will soon publish, a book entitled
"Why the Solid South; or, Reconstruction and
Its Results."
It undertakes to narrate fairly and dispas
sionately in concise and popular form the 'his
tory of the reconstructed Governments in cam
State, showing how the Republicans obtained
control and how thoy lost it, tho figures and
facts as to shrinkage of values and increase of
aeot ann taxation unaer tnose uoverninenw,
and the prosperity of tho South under present
auspices. The book speaks of Abraham Lin
coln's death as an appalling calamity to the
South, arcnes that Andrew Johnson followed
strictly Lincoln's plan of restoration, and con
tends that if Lincoln had lived he would have
been able to defend that plan against the as
saults of Congress Each chapter is sicned
by its author, who thus becomes di
rectly responsible for the truth of
his statements, and the claim of the book in
its preface (written by General Herbert, its
author) is that in all the chapters the facts are
understated rather than overstated. The race
3ucstion and the race troubles are extensively
iscussed, the statement made that there is no
intention to agitate for the repeal of the
Fifteenth Amentimcnt or tho deportation of
the negro. Educational and material statistics
of many kinds arc given in support of the con
tention that the negro is pruspcrine and that
tho South is solving for itself the negro ques
tion. The book is dedicated to the business men of
the North, with a statement that they are in
terested in continuing tho prosperity of the
South.
