A Pleasant Place for Colored People-
Tin isegro’a Advantage.

London, Sept. 20.—-Colored people who
nyo ambitious for association with white
jpeople nmi to escape fho social inferiurity of
Sli'T position in the l'nitod States, should
emigrate to England. In this country,
there dn- s not apltetr Li lie any prejudice
against the colored brnt her. In’ fact there
appear" to Is* n prejudice in his favor.
There are not many negroes in England in
proportion to the whites, but those who are
here appear to lip specially delighted with
their situations. The negroes m England
Lave free intercourse and companionship
with the whites of n corresponding and
even superior grade of intelligence and
education. 1 have seen any num
ber of negro men out walking or riding
with white women, well dressed, respectable
jmd intelligent looking. It is also common
enough to see negro women attended by
clean-cut, good-looking Englishmen. If the
negro woman does not have a w hite attend
ant. it is because she prefers one of her own
,arv. I have seen a number of negro men
and women in England, but I have invaria
bly seen them in company with whites. I
do not remember having seen negro men
or women in company. Having nearly the
entire white population of England to pick
and choose from, they have naturally shown
a discrimination against their own color. The
only noticeable prejudice, therefore, in Eug
] uid against the negro comes from the
pegroes themselves, Sunday, going
tn to Kew, there came on board the little
steamer at the t 'helsoa pier n fair-complex
ioned, blue-eyed blonde. Her color was
riear and her manner that of a neat house
maid or upjier servant. Mho was dressed in
b nek, with a small black astrachan fur cap
flattened down upon her yellow liair. She
v is in the company of the meaiiest-looking
negro specimen 1 have ever seen. He was
smell, lean and almost weazened. He was
undersized and shabby. He bad the un
wholesome color of the offspring of a very
Jew specimen of white trash united with a
degraded mulattress. He was a most mon
grel representative of a bleached-out, de
generate branch of the negro family. His
eves were small, catty and yellowish
through his faded, furtive black pupils.
His teeth were dirty, broken
and decayed. Jiis scanty, ragged
heard partly concealed liis unwholsome
looking face. A thick mane, which was
neither wool nor hair, but a dirty black
mass somewhere between the two, stood out
from his small head under a low crowned
soft hat. This degenerate specimen of hu
manity was looked up toby this fresh-faced,
neatly dressed English maid as if ho were a
person of superior rank and position. As
they sat down upon the side of the rail her
negro companion passed his lean, yellow
nailed hand round her waist under her cloak
and gazed up into her dean-looking face
with an expression of leering satisfaction.
Such a spectacle in a public conveyance in
the Southern regions would undoubtedly
have led to their both being pitched over
board. As it was, no one but a small group
of America ns on board the vessel appeared
to notice this strange companionship.
I hat e been living this summer in wbat
are called in London residential flats, near
Hyde Park. There are several porters em
ployed about t hese flats. One of them is a
New York negro who acquired his edu
cation and knowledge of mankind as
porter in a Pullman car and afterward in
one of the New York hotels. He wears a
double-breast ed, brass buttoned blue frock
livery, with round, flat-top cap, which has
a square visor. He is a most imposing indi
vidual. He has the soft melodious voice of
the best tvpe of his race. He is a clean,
manly-lookmg fellow, lie js the hero of all
cooks and housemaids of the entire flats.
This porter is on duty at night. He always
moves about escorted bv several admir
ing white servant girls. He hardly ever has
less than six in his company. They stand
in the most admiring positions. No Bun
thorne was ever surrounded by more com
plete postures of adoration. But this porter
Iskes all this admiration gravely. He evi
dently has a very poor opinion of white
people who run after negroes. Ho permits
the servant girls to run after him, but not
much more. All of the girls speak to him
with the prefix of “Mr. before his name.
None of the white porters are honored in
this way. They are all called bv t heir first
names, although two or three of them are
Inen advanced in life and the heads of large
families. The colored porter is always Mr.
Brooks. One of the tidiest of these servant
girls, born and reared in the country, and
who has not yet lost the fresh color ac
mired in her farm life, expressed the other
day a fervent desire that when she had a
husband she hoped he would be just such a
nice black man as Mr. Brooks.
Coming out of Paddington station the
ether morning I saw a four-wheeled eah
drive up with a rattle and crash. Its top
was covered with trunks, hags and boxes.
Six fresh-faced railroad porters stood in
lute to receive this splendid array of bag
'page. The door of the cab opened, and out
stepped a regular-featured, wholesome,alert,
active-looking man in clerical dress.
Whether a member of the English or the
l atholie church was not apparent from his
dress. Both wear the soft black hat so pop
ular with us in the West and the regulation
black frock-cut uniform, with white
tie at the throat. After him came
a tall, lithe-figured negro girt, dressed
in all the hues of the rainbow.
A great yellow-be-ribhoned hat perched
upon the top of her tightly twisted and
crinkled hair. Bhe was about three-quar
ters black. Tones of yellow shone in the
high lights upon her dusky face. She was
about 18. I supposed she was a servant
girl. There followed directly after her
snotber negro woman, also gayly dressed
and about the same shade of color, and after
her came still another a little blacker,
shorter, stouter and evidently the chaperone
of the party. It was clear that they were
net Bisters of Charity. They were too
gayly dressed for that. They stood alioiit
perfectly at their ease, and appeared to
regard the clergyman who was with
them as a person whose only occupa
tion in life was to look after them. It. was
lie who took charge of all the baggage and
"bo purchased all of the tickets, and who
kept, running to them with ]>olite sugges
tions for their comfort aud convenience, and
" hen it was time tor the train it was the
youngest., the one who wore the yeliow
ribbooed hat perched high upon her head,
who took his arm, and with a real cake
walk swagger marched to a first-class com
partment, followed ,by her dusky com
panions.' This compartment was specially
reserved, and when the train pulled out the
priest sat facing his tlcbe colored fairies,
'' foumg with rapture and attention to their
lively remarks and gleeful giggles, which
occasionally broke into a real darkey
Viewing the utter absence of prejudice
"gainst colored people in England I do not
think better advice could be given to col
ored people who are ambitious than to come
here. Those in the South who have bad
•heir political aspirations cut short by the
energetic action of white leaguers, by the
insinuation of tissue ballots and by exces
sive skill upon the part of whites in count
ing voles, should by all means come to Eng
land. There is nothing here to stand ill the
way of their advancement. They would
Be able to strengthen at. once a naturally
prominent position freely accorded to them
o> the English masses. By judicious mar
riage hacked by the admiration of the
white race 1 do not see what should stand
between them and Parliament, or even the
f abinet. The English are very fond of
oratory, and the negroes with us have a
special gift in that, direction. One ol' the
most eloquent negroes who ever spoke in
Congress, Elliott, a simon pure negro, re
ceived his education at the University of
Oxford, England. T. C. Crawford.

A Young Woman’s Teat of Hor Lover
Results In a Confusing Discovery.
From the PUilrotetphia Press.
New Yoke, Oct. B.—Winter before last
it was the swell thing for the line ladies of
a certain society set to make up parties to
go to Beefsteak John's. There they sat
around the old stove, with chunks of steak
on slices of bread and drank ale out of bat
tered pewter mugs. Last winter it was
“slumming,” ns they called visiting the
dives of New York. But those places got so
decent under Mayor Hew itt that there was
no fun in them after awhile. During
the summer, at such times as the ladies got
into town, they had a mild sort of au outing
on top of the new Fifth Avenue stages.
This fall the fad of theso folks is to goto the
fortune tellers. They make up parties and
visit half a dozen of an evening. A girl
told me she had heard from fate by cards,
by palmistry, by spiritual mediumship, by
astrology and by a teacup. Mhe thought the
revelations of the tea were the most won
derful. The woman told her she was en
gaged in something as secret as the grave,
but very amusing.
“And are you:'’ I asked.
“Why, it is too good to keep to myself,”
rattled Miss Bouton. “How the woman
found it out I can’t say. You know I’m en
gaged to Archie Vivant, and there are
queer stories in our set about Areliie. It oc
curred to me that I might as well get better
acquainted’ with the gentleman before I
went any further. Mo I just wrote him a
letter, and told him I was a young married
woman who had fallen desperately in love
with him, and desired, above all things,
to meet him. If he would promise
never to try to see my face,
but would allow me to wear a thick
veil, I would make an appointment
with him. Oh, the scheme suited him. He
wrote directly. He met me the same even
ing. I’ve been out riding with him re
peatedly, and even supped at a hotel out
on Central avenue. How he did beg to see
my face. Well it’s awful fun, and Archie,
to keep it up, wears a mask now. When I
jumped into the carriage the other night
he fairly startled me. for he had on a crim
son domino, and said if I hid my face so
“When was this,” asked I.
“Night before last.”
This struck me as strange, as Archie had
sat in front of me that evening at the
I went next day to Bob, the bosom friend
of Archie, and I said to him: “What is
this I hear of Archie riding out with a
veiled lady 1”
“Good mercy,” said he, “you don’t
say that’s got out. It's some foolish,
romantic girl. Mhe’s young and awful nice,
though none of us have seen her face.”
“None of you!” 1 exclaimed.
“Why yes; you see she’s gone on Archie,
but Archie has passed her around. She is
all tied up in h veil aud lace tilings. Mo
Archie got a mask, aud she thought that
was very interesting and all the jollier. So
it is the exploit for every fellow in the club
who is Archie's size to wear that mask and
go riding with that girl. Oh, it’s a great
kidding we’re giving her.”
I wrote to Addle next morning. I don’t
think she will mention this little enterprise
to Archie after they are married, and mean
while. the boys of the club are sorry that
the veiled lady has disappeared.
On the Fiftn avenue promenade I saw an
elegant and very handsome woman. Mile
wore a costume of pale gray silk, with
draperies of Irish lace, and on her head was
a bonnet of gold-colored tulle, trimmed
with white tulle and Irish lace to cor
respond. It was a rich, but simple and
becoming toilet. This was the Countess of
Dalliousie, our newest aristocrat from Brit
ain. Mhe was walking the hundred feet or
so from a store to a carriage. Along came
a common-looking sort of swell English
man, on whom nobody thought of turning
their eyes from the pretty woman.
That was the Duke of Marlborough, whom
we ha ve been abusing or coddling, as fancy
took us, for his notorious career abroad.
What struck me as interesting in the mo
mentary encounter was the recognition be
tween the two titled persons. The Duke
seemed inclined to stop and warmly greet
the Countess, but she barely inclined her
head in an incipient bow, without a
? limps© of a smile, and coldly passed away,
t was substantially a cut direct.
MASTODONS IN ALASKA.
The Strange Story Told by an Indian
Fro in thr .Veto York Times.
Max’ Francisco. Oct. 10. —For several
years scientists have been greatly interested
in stories that have come from Alaska tend
ing to shake their faith in the belief that
the mastodon is an extinct animal. The
latest contribution on this subject—the im
portance of w hich, from a zoological point
of view, cannot be over-estimated—is
f umished by the Free Press, published at
Juneau, Alaska, a copy of which has just
reached this city. The editor of that paper
“In conversation with I). H. Mummers,
formerly of Denver, Col., who came out
this fall with a party of miners from Forty
Mile Creek, we learned that the existence
of living mastodons were not the mere
fabrications of Northern furriers, but t hat
the Stick Indians had positively told him
that such animals had been seen by them.
One of the Indians said that w hile hunting
one day in that unknown section he came
across an immense track sunk to a deptli of
several inches in moss. It much resembled
an elephant’s track, hut was larger round
than a barrel. The Indian followed up this
curious track, which to all appearance was
very fresh, tracking from one immense
stride to another, a distance of some miles,
when lie came in ini! view of his game.
The hunter gave one look, then turned and
fled. These Indians, as a rule, are the
bravest huuters. With no other weapon
than their sjitar they will attack and kill a
grizzly, but. the immense proportions of this
new style of game both startled and filled
the hunter, brave as lie was, with great fear.
“He described it as being larger than Post
Trader Harper's store, with great shining
yellowish tusks, and a mouth large enough
to swallow him at a single gulp. He said
the animal was doubtless similar to those
which furnished the immense tiones scat
tered over that section. If such animals
are now in existoive, aud Mr. Hummers has
no reason to doubt the veracity of the In
dian, as other Indians, and also Mr. Harper,
confirmed it, they inhabit a section very
higli in altitude, but. rarely visited by hu
man beings. \Ve also have no reason to
doubt, the Indian tale, for at no very dis
tant period Yykeon country was inhabited
by these animals, as hundreds of their mas
sive skeletons strewn along the creeks are
silent but truthful witnesses. On Forty-
Mile creek bones can be found projecting
partly from the sand, and among t he drift
wood of the stream on the creek below this,
these skeletons are also quite numerous.
