A "Spectator" Man Spends His
Vacation in tha Northern Neck
and Draws a Pen Picture of Life
in That Section of Old Virginia.
(Staff Correspondence of The Spectator.)
Irvingtou, Va.,Sept. IG.—My brother,
Win. C. Morton, and myself arrived at
this delightful little town some ten
days since for our summer outing.
The pb.ce is most picturesquely titu
ated in Lancaster county, on the Rap
pahannock river near the Chesapeake
bay, and at a point where the river is
from 4to 5 miles wide. A beautiful
inlet or harbor runs in from the broad
river and upon its high banks and
promontories that project into the
stream, the town is built. It will add
interest to my letter to know that this
is the home of our former townsman,
W. Mcl). Lee, a son of the late A. Y.
Lee, who with his family, formerly
lived many years in Staunton. He
has acquired a great deal of political
influence in the few years he has been
here, and is, perhaps, the most popular
man in the Northern Neck. To his
energy and public spirit is due much of
the improvement and building up of
the town. And speaking of the town,
reminds me, that it is different from
any I have ever seen, for although it
claims a population of 1,000, there is
not a street in the village. Every houte
or group of residences has its own am
ple grounds that elope to the waters
edge. There are numerous piouionto
ries or little peninsulars of high land
that run out into the water and these
are covered with shade trees and grass
that spread to tbe water's edge. On
these scores of houses are built, high
above the tide and present as pictur
esques an appearance as can well be
Whether the stranger enters the bar- i
bor here during the night or day, he is i
sure to express the keenest admiration I
for the place. Of course they have t
churches, a newspaper, a summer ho- 1
tel, and a few stores. There is also a ;
large, well conducted academy and a i
fertilizer factory that employes 150 I
workmen. Of this factory I have to i
apeak, for to a mountain man it is en- i
gaged In a most extraordinary busi
ness. Think of a factory that grinds
£00 oarrels of fresh th-h daily into fer- ,
tilizer! Yet that is just what it does
every day, the quantity named being (
rather under the daily out put thau
otherwise. During the few days we |
have been here I have seen hundreds of
tons of fertilizer made from iiacerat
ed fish—6o tons a day is about the out- |
put, together with scores of barrels of
fish oil. The modus operandi of such
a wholesale destruction of fish is very
interesting and we watched it with
deep interest. The fish are dumped by
machinery from li3hing steamers into
a large bin such as wheat is carried
into an elevator. From this tank the i
fish are fed into a macerator that both i
pulverizes and cooks them. They then >
pass through compressors, that ex i
tract the oil, the pulp passing on j
through drying ovens and is finally !
dumped in a pile ready for bagging. :
The time consumed from the time the i
fish enter the macerator to the time he i
is dumped into a dry pulverized heap <
of fertilizer is about 3 hours—an in- t
credibly short while. The oil is i
drained into tanks from which it is |
poured into barrels and is there ready |
for market where it brings a good
price. The fish fertilizer has a ready
sale among tbe farmers of Eastern ,
Virginia and North Carolina, where
they find it an excellent mixer with
other fertilizers. Of course the means
of supplying such a factory with tißh
must indeed seem the fishiest part of
this fish story. I shall therefore give you
actual minimum figures as I saw them.
This factory—the Carter's Creek Per
tilizer Co., aud operated by Capt. Wm.
L. Meseick—owns three large flshiug
steamers, and these are employed each
day seining in the bay and river. By
his courtesy my brother and self spent
a day in the Chesapeake bay on board
one of his steamers, the Dorothy F.
Wacker, the largest steamer engaged
iv the fibbing business. We steamed
out of the harbor at day-break and by
sun rise, the man aloft had sighted
fish and the vessel was stopped. These
fishermen never fish until they see
their fish, and see them by tho thou
sand, too.-The particular fish they are
after are called Ailwives, about the
size of herring and have too many
bones to be marketable. They swim
generally at the surface of the water
aud go in great schools or bunches, of
ten numbering more than 100,000. So
the practiced eye of our captain aloft
had no difficulty in sighting them
many hundred yards away. They
make a dark, shadowy appearance on
' the water, sometimes lashing the water
into light foam witn their tales, and
travelling in a given direction, so it is
easy to bead them off and with a net
to scoop the whole bunch. You can
therefore imagine our interest when
the school was sighted. Instantly all
on broad was action. The crew of 26
men divided at once and scrambled
into the two large life boats towed at
the stern of the steamer. We went out
with them and as soon as our boats
were in front of the moving column of
fish the boats separated, throwing out
a net as they widened and forming a
circle, closed in behind before the fish
discovered they were trapped. The
[ net was then drawn in from the bot
! torn like a tobacco bag and the catch
' was safe. The net was then drawn
f together and the steamer coming
alongside soon bad tbe G?h sboard.
We will never forget Ihe impression
made when the hoisting machine
plunged into tbe foaming mass of fish
n and lifting them aloft, dashed them
into the steamer's hole—3 barrels full
at a time. Again and again the big
measure emptied its living burden till
the hole was knee deep in living, floun
dering fish.
Our first catch was 15,000, our sec
' ond 50,000, and so on throughout the
day. As soon as the catch was loaded
on, the boats were tied back to the
stem of the steamer and the vessel
a proceeded in search of another school
a A lookout went aloft on a rope laddi r
and among the top rigging scanned the
vast expanse of water. We soon got
our sea legs and going aloft to the top
of the mast with the captain, enjoyed
to the fullest our days sport from this
1 high vantage point. We saw 9 fishing
steamers at work in the bay and they
were all making big hauls. As for
[ oyetermen, they were out bylhe hun
dreds; 300 coming from Irvington
alone. When the day's work was over
we steamed back to the factory with
! 200,000 fish or 666 barrels—the other
. two steamers following us with as
many more. It took fresh crews all
night to unload tbe fish so the vessels
' could go out again next morning. And
' so it goes day in and day out, occasion
ally a million fish, often a bait' million,
and yet old fishermen say there are
more fish today in these waters than
there were 20 years ago.
A shark feeding on the fish is some '
times caught in the nets and then there :
is sport. Often sea turtles of enor- '
mous size, blue fish, flounders, etc., '
are caught in like manner, aud these •
are saved for table use. The fish fer
tilizer business in this section is a big '
one, there being 8 factories employing ■
15 steamers aud many htiLdreda of 1
men. (
There are many other objects of in '
terest near here, among them being
Old Christ's church (Episcopal) built!'
more than 230 years ago and of brick i
brought from England. The -.vails are 11
' 3 feet thick and the building is kept in \*
good repair. In shape it is a perfect j (
eroBS having a door at each of the four j
ends, with the aisles coming together I"
at the centre of the building. At this j J
point the pulpit is erected 10 feat above . *
the audience and is reached by a spiral, s
stairway. This height is given to en- t
able the rector to look down iuto the j H
pews, which appear like rows of deep ■'
square boxes without tops. The ■ c
boxes varying in size according to the *
families to occupy them The pews *
open from the side by a closed door ard j
are about ii feet high; inside the seats c
run arouud the four sides so that most L
of the congregation sit with their '
back to the chancel. *
There is no chance for an easter hat
or gown to be seen by any one ssve
the rector. The floor of the church is *
all cf stone, and the pews and furnish
ings of solid walnut. In tbe coruer of
the building a large marble slab marks
the last resting place of old King Car- .
ter (a noted celebrity In his daj ) and
his many wives. Among other pleas- c
ures at Irvington,we joined one even
ing a sailing party out tbe bay, and
witnessed a beautiful phenomena. The
night was dark and a strong breeze B
churned the sea into a phosphorous .
foam that was beautiful beyond de
scription. The whole expanse of wat- .
er was lit with a phospborous glow:
every sea nettle was a ring of gold, cv- j.
cry fish left a streak of fire behind him, I
from stern to stern of our vessel was
a seething mass that glowed like melted 1 .
lava, while as far as the eye could |
reach in every direction the wat6f j
seemed a mass of fliine. I have never j
seen a grander, more beautiful tight. j
Our captain, an old salt of forty years i
experience, said he had never seen
such a display and as he thought it *
presaged the coming of a storm, soon
had us back in safer and more quiet

South Carolina Senator Talks
Plainly to New Eiielandeps.
And Was Libeially Applauded by
the Large Crowd That Heard
I Him --Said He Represented the
► Man With the Hoe.
* In a speech at Providence, B. 1., to
the Bimetallic League last week Sena-
Tillman, of South Carolina, rather op
ened the eyes of his audience, j
In language emphatic and sarcasm
most biting, with his index finger
pointed at the audience, he handled
the topics of the day in a fashiou new
to the experieLce of New England au
diences, and for a time the people
looked amazed. The audience soon
became accustomed to his manner of
presenting his argument, so that when
he had finished they cried for "More,
more. Go on," aud applauded so long
that the Senator was obliged to bow
his acknowledgements several times.
Senator Tillman said: "The warmth
of your welcome leads me to remark
that it has not been so long ago that a
man from the South and from South
Carolina, who would have come to
New England to discuss national issues
would have met with a very different
treatment. I take it, my friends, as
an angary of better days for the Re
public that the Spanish war, if it has
done nothing else, is worth all that it
cost in the fact that it has proved that
the South will fight for the Star and
Stripes as readily as you will.
"We have been in existence as a na
tion 123 years, and we have been boast
ing that we have the graatest nation
on the globe, the freest nation, the
'land ot the free and the home of the
brave,' the asylum for the oppressed.
But, my friends, 1 tell you that as far
as I can see we are approaching a cri
sis when we will have to change the
policies of this government or we will
witness the destruction of the Repub
lic and the substitution for it of a gov
ernment of the few rie.h people con
trolling and oppressing and robbing
the masses
"You New Euglanders have some
sharacteristics which, to my mind, are
nost admirable. You have some insti-
I among you that are not equal
.vhere in the United States, and
t you are as clean and honora
d high-toned aud patriotic a
tion as I have ever met. But,
ntrymen, I want to have you to
stilus one thing—that south of
;omac and west of the Missisippi
re more people than there are
England and all the country
outside of those limits. The people
south of the Ohio and Potomac and
west of the Mississippi can elect a
President without your help and in
spite of you.
■srofore it is well tor you to have
lied to your minds that this is a
jreat country, and that it has more
interests than centre around New
England or New York,and that these
interests are now being neglected;
that one-half of the people of this
jouutry are being oppressed, and that
it is being done by your consent and
■h your votes,
i have seen nothing in your
ipers except sophistries and
ods, therefore how could you
understand the subject? How could
pou be made to know that all this rot
md twaddle that you have read was
oeing bought by the capitalists who
sought to throw dust iv your eyes to
enable them to get your votes in their
schemes to oppress the rest of the
country and oppress you along with us?
"I represent the man with the hoe.
I am known as Farmer Tillman in the
United States Senate, and there are
30,000,000 of them in this country, and
therefore, as I am the only farmer,
you cannot blame me if I present to
you the aspects of public questions as
they appear to the farmers and as they
affect them.
"You people in New England no
longer have the agriculture. You are
segregated iv. towns and villages en
gaged in manufacturing, and there
fore you know nothing about condi
tions which exist elsewhere, where
men have to toil aud sweat from
morning until night in pursuit of those
avocations of the farmer where they
dig out of the soil the support of
themselves and their families —the
"Man With a Hoe' who takes 10,000,
--000 bales of cotton from the ground,
who raises tha wheat, who raises the
corn, the oats, the beef, the pork, the
breadstuff's, the cheese, the butter,
and all the other agricultural pro
ducts, which constitute $750,000,
000 of your exports. Over three
quarters of it is discriminated against
in Washington, is ignored, and his
rights and interests are no more con
sidered there thau if he did not .exist.
Class legislation for the benefit of the
classes, class legislation for the benefit
of special industries, has wrought an
accumulation of wealth in the Eastern
portion of this country, to the injury
aud detriment of the Southern portion
and the Western part. Now lam not
going to find tault with you for hav
ing been shrewd and sharp enough to
'I tell you- that 1 know jußt as
much and as clearly as I know that
electric light is burning—that the day
when wages in America will fall to the
level of European wages cannot be put
off by any possible combination of po
lilicans of legislation of any kind, and
it is only a question of the near future
when you people in Providence and all
over New England, now protected will
have your wages brought down througt
the greed of your employers to thi
level of those in France, Germany ant
"There is another topic that poaai
bly a Southern man can discuss Witt
more uuction, with more complacency
with more satisfaction than anybody
else at this time. Ie is the attitude ol
the present Administration toward
the colored races of the earth. The
slaves were freed in accordance with
the doctrine that ah men are created
free and equal, and that color has
nothing to do with a man's standing.
"That war which abolished slavery
cost the Southern people the lives of
250,000 of its best soup, and cost you an
equal number. Bat, my lrieuas, I tell
you now, 35 yeais after that great
struggle, the men who were leaders in
it, who preached the crusade on the
equality of men, are now sending troops
to the Philippines to shoot men into
submission who are contending for
what we contended for in 1776.
"And it is a disgrace to the nation.
We are foicing our rule upon tbe peo
ple of Hawaii and the Philippine Is
lands. Ou the former islands there are
50,000 slaves on sugar plantations,
mostly owned by New Englanders.
They have always contended for the
eqnality of the black man. Well, now,
I have got no love for those colored
races. I contend, and have always
contended, and will die believing that
the negro is not the equal of the white
man. God did not make him so, and j
you cannot legislate it into him, either.
But, gentlemen, while I say that, and
while I mean it, I believe in giving
him his just rights under the law, bar
ring the political part of it."
Senator Tillman's speech was fre
quently punctuated with applause.

Three Brothers Meet After a Long Sepa- ]
ration—Telephone Deal Off.
Mr. J. M. Black, a prominent farm
er of Buffalo Mills, this county, Friday
received quite a surprise. He was ac
costed by two strangers who were
driving a buggy, they endeavored to
sell him some farming machinery and
finally asked that he feed their horses
and give them dinner. To the latter
proposition be said ho would consult
his wife and the strangers walked to
the porch aud made themselves at
home. Mr. Black thought the face of j
one of them looked familiar to him
and requested his wife to bring him a
photograph of his brother who lived in I
the West. From that he recognized
one of the men to be his brother,!
Charles Black, who lived in Nebraska,
but did not know the other man as be
was a complete stranger to him. lie
found out that the other man was also
his brother, Rufus Black, who had
left this county in 1877 with Charles
and they are now located near North
Bead, Nebraska. They were visiting
their native county for the first time
in 22 years, and had changed so much
that their brother, J. M. Black, did not I
recognize them.
The sc'ueme for telephonic comma-1

present practically fallen through. Thel
Lexington Telephone Company pro
posed to build one-half of the line
from this place down the river by the
way of Balcony Falls, and at the st.me
time the company in Lynchburg was
to build out from that city and put up
one half of the line. Beceutly tbe
Lynchburg company commenced a
line to Amherst and desired the Lex
ington company to change from the
former route selected. j
The Lexington company went over
the newly proposed route and found!
that it was not practicable for the
company to build a line over a moun
tain which would not have any inter- [
mediate stations on it. So, for the
present, the deal between the two com
panies is off.
