Sec, BAY SAINT LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI, SATURDAY, AUGUST 12, 1906. NEW YORK LETTER. The Yazoo Sentinel’s Correspondent Writes Another Interesting Article. One morning I took a notion to visit the Battery, the extreme lower end of the city which formerly consisted of a large park in which was’situated what was known as Castle Garden through which all the immigrants arriving in this country by the way of New York were compelled to pass. To my sur prise this entire part of the city has been changed. The large space for merly used as a park is being built up. The U. S. government is now building on this ground what will be when com pleted the finest custom house in the world. The immigrants’ headquarters have been turned into a public aquarium which itself is worth a trip of many miles to visit. Here can be seen fish alive from all parts of the world. On the ground floor are large tanks floored with white tiling, containing the great monsters from the ocean, some attractive and others repulsive, from the large sea turtle, weighing hundreds of pounds, to the smallest diamond back, striped sea bass, that looks very much like our river bass, but weighing from 50 to 75 pounds. Alligators from the Missis sippi river and crocodiles from Florida, seals and sea lions, reptiles of all kinds, with every tank and vat labled for the information of the thousands of visitors. All around the building (which is circu lar) are tanks with heavy glass fronts and sides with the background artistic ally arranged with rocks and shells, each one different, forming a perfect picture in themselves and about two hundred in number, containing perfect curiosities. Here will be found tanks containing our native perch, trout and bass, fish iiom England, Italy, China, Japan, from the mountain streams, in fact, from everywhere. One tank con taining the cow fish was quite a curios ity, the fish having the petfcct head of a cow. There was the beautiful angel fish with perfect shaped wings, as well as the opposite, the devil fish, with per fectly shaped something else; the star fish. The crab, lobster, oyster and clam were all to bo seen. Hours could be passed here pleasantly and instruct ively by many of our ardent fishermen, and while gazing on the wonders of the deep, my mind reverted to our friends at home, with a desire that all could sec and take in the wonderful work of a wise Creation. After spending some time in the aqua rium, I left to examine the improvements of the surrounding neighborhood. Here at the Battery is the place known as Bowling Green. At the foot of Broad way, and in Revolutionary times were the headquarters of Gen. George Wash ington while occupying New York. The old Colonial buildings, with their mas sive columns, have been torn down to make room for the immense skyscrapers, twenty or more stories high, each one grander than the other, showing archi tectural work to be seen in no other city. Passing up Broadway is Trinity church, which was formerly a landmark, its spire towering high avove all build ings in its yiemity, but not looking like two-bits as compared with a thousand dollar government 7:20 bond. It is now only to be seen when you get immedi ately in front of it. Right here is Wall street, a dark, dingy, narrow street, which manipulates the wealth of the en tire country. Here at 2p. m. can be seen a mass of struggling humanity, rushing headlong up and down on both sides, pushing and Jostling each other in their haste, as though each hour would be the last. Space on this street is valuable. Desk room on the top floor is worth SIOO a month. I paid a visit to the Produce Exchange Vaults, considered one of the finest in the city. The main corridor of the stor age department is 300 feet long. This is divided into apartments of different sizes, renting from SSO to $2,000 per year. Besides these there are safe de posit boxes renting, according to size, from $5 to §3OO per year. Every pas sag2 is guarded, and the massive iron gates are kept locked, only opened by a guard for admission or exit. The vaults occupy an entire square, being the base ment of the Produce Exchange, Leaving this section of busy finan j ciers, I took the cars for the East side, where the poorer classes are engaged at their different vocations. Here is where the city is congested with thou sands of people to the block. Here, too, the streets arc crowded with people, representatives of every section of the globe. Years gone by, East Broadway was considered one of the finest resi dence streets of the city. Now it is oc cupied for trade by the lower classes, cheap saloons, restaurants and board ing houses. Innumerable push-carts line the sidewalks, selling not only fruit, ice cream, lemonade and such like, but dry goods, clothing and furn ishing goods of every description. Judging from the thousands of children swarming the streets, there is ‘‘some thing doing” in this section which would make the strenuous Teddy feel proud for the future welfare of the ;country. Leaving out the Murry Hill section, including Fifth avenue and the million aire portion of the city, one would be surprised t<j sec the children. With few exceptions they look clean and are nicely clad. Much improvement has been made for educational purposes. The very finest buildings with best sani tary arrangements, are provided with high-grade teachers. In fact, every thing is done to instill knowledge and morality into the minds of the young, in order to bring them to make good citizens. In changing money daily it was a surprise to me that during my entire stay in the city I did not receive, nor did I see a single silver dollar. Never was there over a part of a dollar in sil ver paid in change. One and two dollar bills are used in place of silver. Money in this city is plentiful, judging from the liberal manner in whicn people are spending it. Everything seems high, especially in the provision line. The very best of everything the world pro duces is shipped to New York for sale, because the people there are willing to pay for and have the best. RISE OF A Bay ST. LOUIS BOY. Large Stockholder and Director in Big St. Louis wholesale House. That the youth of the South may re view what ambition, industry and in tegrity will accomplish, we herewith present the subject of our sketch —Capt. Edgar F. Shaw, who now resides in St. Louis, but was bom in Bay St. Louis, Hancock county, Miss., nearly a half e .y?SKgr c; i-~ CAPT. EDGAR F. SHAW. century ago. When he was quite a youth, to better their condition, his pa rents moved from the Bay to New Or leans during the war between the States. The little family from the Gulf Coast did not tarry long in New Orleans, how ever, as the Union forces were then in possession of the city, and, owing to their sympathies with the South, Mr. Butler bade them no longer dwell within the Union lines. Their next stopping place was on a farm up in St. Francis County, Mis souri, which was to them then unknown; right in the heart of the great lead and zinc mining section of South East Mis souri. Their farm afterwards became ycry valuable as mining land. Like many youths of the farm, Capt. Shaw wended his way to the city and cast his fortunes with St. Louis. Possessing little money and little business experience, but wealthy in proper home training, the Hancock county boys set out to climb the ladder to wealth and position. In the early eighties he secured a minor position with one of the great wholesale shoe houses of today, but then in its infancy. But today its trade mark (Star Five Star) and manufactured pro ducts are known throughout the civil ized world. Capt. Shaw’s name is syn onymous with this house, and he was the first salesman of the Brown Shoe Cos. to push his annual sales beyond the hundred thousand dollar mark. Today he counts his friends by the host and his wealth by the hundreds of thous ands. He has also mads judicious in vestments in both bank and mining stocks, is a director and large stock holder of the Brown Shoe Cos., a con sistent member of the Catholic Church, and does charity with a free and open hand. Thus, capitalist, philanthropist, humorist and bear hunter as he is, the good captain’s eyes sparkle with pride as he says, “I was born in Hancock county, Mississippi, sir. “LAUGH AND GROW FAT.” Life is such a serious business with the average mortal that an opportunity for a hearty laugh is more than welcome to most people. “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine,” and so do the humorous features of that great metro politan journal, the Chicago Record- Herald. The first thing that greets you on the first page of every issue is the humorous cartoon by Ralph Wilder, the well-known artist, that frequently tells more at a glance than could be conceiv ed in a column of reading matter. Eve ry issue contains also a humorous small story on the editorial page, and the “Alternating Currents” column, written by S. E. "Kiser, one of the most popular humorous writers in the coun try. In addition to all these, the Sunday issue always includes a comic section, guaranteed to produce laughter. OASTORIA. Boars the * TtlB Have Always Bong!* Send Yoiul ~, 108 PRINTING To The— SEA COAST ECHO, THE VANDERBILT FAMILY. Reginald Vanderbilt waa lately sum moned for grand jury duty; instead of failing to honor the summons, as many wealthy men do,he respondedjwith deter mination to do duty to the common wealth as faithfully at two dollars per diem as if receiving a thousand dollars a day for his service. Notwithstanding their great wealth and display in erec tion and raaintainance of magnificent homes and other ways, there is a de mocracy in the Vanderbilt'family that now and then comes to the surface and shows the family to be of substantial, democratic stock.—The Greenville Dem ocrat. That reminds us of an incident re lated to us by the late Hon. ti. R. Sin gleton, who so long represented Missis sippi in Congress, and, as o||rinnan of the committee on library in the House, had the honor of reporting ttee bill for the construction of the Congressional Library building, the handsomest gov ernment structure in the world. He was the intimate friend of several of the Vanderbilts, and on one occasion was a guest at a family dinner given by the old commodore. The table was pre sided over by a widowed daughter of the rough, but hospitable founder of the millionaire race, who, of course, is en titled to be nameless in this connection, and she was exhibiting the graces inci dent to culture and education when the old ferryman blurted out: “Madam! You are putting on a and and sight too many airs. I knew your mother when she was nothing but a steamboat cook, and ad and poor cook at that.’*—Aberdeen Examiner. The port of Gulfport will soon be the harbor of the largest fleet of reyenue cutters ever seen together in a South ern seaport. The following cutters have been ordered by the treasury depart ment to report here to Capt. M. G. Ross: Hamilton, from Port Tampa; Seminole, from Wilmington; Forward, from Key West; Alert, from Mobile; and proba bly the Penrose, from Pensacola. The fleet will be used in the quarantine service under orders of Dr. Eugene Wasdin, of the Marine Hospital Service, and Captain Ross, commander of the revenue cutter service. The small cut ters will take the place of the Grace and Caroline, and this puts an end to the talk about Mississippi boats in Louisi ana territory. Dr. Edmond Souchon, president of the Louisiana Board of Health, ha* found it necessary, in view of the ab surd and extreme quarantine measures prevailing in certain towns and parishes in Louisiana, to issue a proclamation calling tor a halt of the mad-like, fren zied and desperate proceedings. In con clusion, the proclamation reads:— “Sixth—Finally, the State Board of Health is determined to end, by persua sion if possible, but forcibly if neces sary, the present chaotic condition of quarantine matters in Louisiana, and notice is hereby given that if local authorities or communities persist in imposing unreasonable and illegal re gal restrictions on travel and commerce and if the civil powers be round inade quate to remedy the evil, the Executive of the State will be called upon by this Board to call out the militia to rest >re and maintain*order.” Week before last The Echo took oc casion to dwell upon the inconsistencies of the quarantine situation and, as an incident in mind, dwelled on the fact that Gulfport, the very first of the Mississippi Gulf Coast communities to announce to the world that “no quaran tine” would be maintained or even in stituted against the city of New Or leans, was the first soon after to an nounce that the most rigid quarantine regulations would be enforced. We took further occasion to make reference in the matter concerning Captain J. T. Jones and his railroad, and for this sin (?) wc are censored by our friend Hart of the Gulf Coast Progress and our friend McKie who presides over the des tinies of the Review at Biloxi. “Pre serve us from our friends” seems to fit well in this case, for where there is no venom our confreres would have it so, by styling The Echo’s editorial item as 'an unjust, and uncalled for attack upon Capt. J. T. Jones. The Echo has no dis position to enter upon a discussion at tnis time which would lead to an endless and ultimately useless controversy,for we well know Captain Jones by reputation, personally and by his works. No sane man can question his sincerity, but that the Gulf & Ship Island Railroad man agement was instrumental in causing the citizens of Gulfport who defiantly asserted “no quarantine for us!” craw fish from their position is sclf-eviden’. Of course, since the fever situation in New Orleans has grown so serious every man, woman and child capable of rea soning seems to be satisfied with the quarantine and now commend those who instituted and caused to be maintained the precautionary measures.
