SEARCHING THE BUSTLES.
A Woman’s Description of the Work of
the Inspectresses on the Wharves.
},\om the Providence Journal.
Indignant woman is not a pleasant person
to run against, and usually people give her
a wide berth; but wait on the docks of New
York for a European steamer and you find
her not in the singular, but in the plural
number. In former years it was an easy
matter to rush through a few (?) presents,
gftv or so. Now, with the advent of
women on the docks as inspectresses, a sad
change has come o’er the Spirit of the fair
traveler’s dream. These inspectresses are
twenty-three in number, under the charge
of Mrs. Mary E. Williams, chief of the
bureau. They range in age from 16 years
to that point where women stop having
birtlulavs. Their hours at the Barge office
on the Battery are from 9 and 7. a. m. on
alternate weeks, to 6p. m. At this season
they are rushed, Sunday being the busiest
day. A competitive civil service examina
tion, such as any pupil in the upper gram
mar grades could pass, secures a position
and a salary of sl(3 a month. When a
vessel is sighted off Fire Island its arrival is
wired to the Barge office. At the Narrows
the custom house officials board the great
6teamer, and others, with inspectresses, pre
pare to meet her when safely tied to her
landing. At one end of the gorgeously
fitted up saloon the men in brass buttons
and white caps with gilt insignia, .seat them
selves, and in Indian file the passengers
come up to the impromptu desks.
“Your name?” askes the officer.
“J. Helene Jones.” So much is honest.
“Alone or with an escort?”
Here comes the rub. If unattended, her
ladyship must submit to the hundred eyes
of the female Argus detailed to inspect the
luggage of ladies traveling alone. If with
a gentleman this is avoided, and although
she has tramped all over the Continent, and
brought from every shop in London and
Paris without any aid, the result, just being
pulled up from the hold of the ship, at the
present moment she finds male protection a
most desirable thing. Her answer, truth
fully or no, goes down, and the next inter
rogation is regarding the number of trunks,
boxes, parcels, and packages. They must
all be enumerated “big box, little box, band
box, and bundle.”
“Dutiable or lion-dutiable?” she is asked.
Nine cases out of ten she smilingly says she
has nothing at all upon which duty can be
charged—in her judgment. Subsequent
events prove that differences of opinion still
exist in this cold, cruel world, where an
unfeeling Government persists in levying a
tax on female friperie. Madamoiselle is
then passed to the man opposite and signs
her name to this paper. She has thus sworn
to possessing no dutiable articles. If squeam
ish she may reply that she has a few
trifles and is asked to name them and place
upon these a valuation. Seldom is the true
cost given, and often sales bills are produced
(kindly arranged by parties across), sub
stantiating her statements. The questioning
closes with a number handed her on a check,
corresponding to that on her sworn deposi
tion. With it goes a printed circular in
forming one bribery is punishable. The
steamer reaches her pier.
Mile. Jones, in anew seal jacket and
Parisian bonnet, brings down numberless
small parcels, her steward, gracious under a
final tip, in the rear with portmanteau,
rugs, and umbrellas. She embraces wait
ing admirers, announces she “had a per
fectly lovely time; actually gained sixteen
pounds I” this last fact corroborated by an
apparent increase in volume and weight.
Somehow her dress-improver has swelled,
but she accounts for this as the very latest
from Regent street fashion models. But
keys are called for. She is most voluble,
too much so for the cool miss in ulster now
controlling all belongings. To the hand
bag first rfives the woman official. Nothing
there. Her steamer trunk. Also empty,
void of anything suspicious, although a
nightdress case is poked into, toilet bag and
boxes ditto. Still nihil. Rugs, fur, cloak,
and umbrellas are opened. Miss Jones
started with none, she now carries four of a
recent make. They pass. A second key
opens a huge Saratoga and each tray comes
under inspection. There is much head gear,
suspiciously new, but it goes as personal
belongings. Lingerie comes under inspec
tion, but, also passes. Dresses of late make
are tossed asside and into each corner go the
quick bands. Ah! Something hard is
struck! A box. Out it comes m a jiffy.
Cover torn off and through the packing
comes a pair of lovely vases. These are
quietly laid aside. During this the owner
is all the time giving information, histori
cal, of the origin and cause of each article.
But, Miss Inspectress is cooler than the
Another trunk is unstrapped and unlocked.
Dresses, dresses everywhere, some but
quarter made aud one of dimension twice
Mile. J. Helene’s size. The keen eye of the
examiner observes this and the garment
goes on top of the box, followed by a gentle
man’s mackintosh, and later a lamp iu royal
Worcester, the va.se of the lamp stuffed with
lace. Gloves are plenty, but give way to a
silk skirt. On the principle of set a thief to
catch a thief, put a woman to fathom a
woman’s ways, and you need not be sur
prised to see the inspectress hold up the
skirt to the light, rip open one of the gores,
and show round after round of heavy jet
stitched inside. The pile is now of goodly
size, its owner tearfully exclaiming: “It's
a sliume; they're only presents from friends
in England!” But the inspectress heeds her
not but goes for the appraisement with tho
deposition, which she has all the time held
in tier hand. Mile. Jones begins to breathe
easy. Politely she is asked to place a value
upon the goods and sho does so. Just as she
is shaking hands with herself and wondering
if she will have enough left in her portemon
naio to put up at the Brunswick or the Fifth
Avenue, she is invited into a room on the
dock. Farewell to sweet delusive hope,
Pandora never left it in the box to be so
A pei-sonal examination shows silk petti
coats with braid aud bullion, and lace orna
mentation. Her pockets, jewelry by the
yard, and in her back hair, when unbound,
are found two shining diamonds. Tne
anatomy of the bustle should be reeds or
springs with a tiny cushion of hair. But here
is a piece of velvet which she could not
duplicate in the States, and a scissoi-s thrust
in the cushion stabs throe meerschaum
pipes! Behold her shorn aud in floods of
tears. She calls a cab, or someone does for
her, pays the duty on her little pile, amount
ing to about three fourths of their real
worth, and loses what has been taken from
her person. The next day she writes to
some New York paper anathematizing tho
Government, a protective tariff, and thinks
she has done nothing at all illogal.
The goods taken Sunday last from a Bos
ton dressmaker on the La Gascogne from
Paris, when spread out, at the Laight street
public stores, mono a display dazzling to the
eyes. They were paced most adroitly, aud
the whol > evidently a previously arranged
plan with the gentleman acting as tempor
ary friend in time of need. The value
placed upon those declared dutiable was
8,000 francs, or SLOOO, when tho correct
estimate is SIO,OOO. It. wits tho largest
seizure for years, aud oddlv enough, ma le
by the male offioers. A few uuys before a
second-class passenger was discovered with
two suits of men’s garments under the skirts
which belonged to her sox! A clergyman and
wife had a whole ship’s cargo of household
effects, which they tried to enter free,certify
ing that they were in use a year previous.
This last permits entrance without tax it ion.
On looking at the goods not a vestige of
wear could be seen, some of the furniture
and carpets in the first lustre of varnish
and newness. Fortner inquiry showed that
the clergyman only went over four mouths
previous. People who would seoru to appro
priate a farthing have tile greatest effioiit
fry, and it is comical to h, ur the exfiostu
taboos at their failure to got the eartu and
the fullness thereof. But, on tho other haivj,
as if to show their value, the inspectresses
tax trifles, and on but a few towels and a
couple of silver spoons I saw a poor int?r
uiediate passenger pay $7.87, The inu’e
'(“hector would have been charitable, for
' ncy had not the upjiearauco of new goods,
and they were the only things outside cloth
tag and necessities.
A Physician Honored by the Queen—
The Quoe-’s Economy.
London', Sept. 24. —The Queen has just
conferred a baronetcy upon Dr. Morel Mac
kenzie for his services to the Crown Prince
of Germany. If there are men in the world
who deserve to have honors conferred upon
them, it is the physicians who attend upon
royalty, for their position is anything but a
desirable one in one way, and were it not
for the rewards attached, I fear that roy
alty would bo worse off in the matter of
medical attendance than even the poor of
In this connection I heard a good story
the other day in regard to a royal physician.
Dr. Bottkin, the confidential physician of
the Czarina, always travels with her, and
has accompanied her as usual to Denmark.
It appears that when Bottkin was first
called iu to prescribe, it became necessary
to examine her imperial majesty with tie
stethoscope, and the physician requested the
great lady to disrobe for that purpose.
There was a frigid refusal, and a great show
of offended imperial dignity, whereupon
Bottkin simply bounced out of her majesty’s
presence, saying—and not in a whisper—that
such fine lady patients might go to the devil,
but they need uot come to him any more for
The attendants trembled and quaked, aud
the Empress was mortally offended; but
when it came to the ears of the Czar of all
tho Russias, he took quite a different view
of the matter. Flattery was all very well
in other apartments, he said, but give him
an honest physician not afraid to speak his
mind. So he sent for Bottkin and inter
viewed him, and the result was, that the
worthy physician was appointed private
medical attendant to the Empress at an
enormous salary. A
The Queen is still in tho Highlands, living
in simple fashion on her limited income. It
is no wonder that her majesty spends so
much of the year in retirement in view of
the fact that she has only the following al
lowances, viz.: £OO,OOO per year for the
privy purse, £131,260 for household sala
ries, £172,500 for household expenses, £13,-
200 to give away in charity, and an allow
ance of £B,OOO for sundries, all unappro
priated. The rest of her receive from
the country £158,000, and this, however, is
but a small portion of what royalty costs
per year. I wonder what the people in
America, who growl at the paltry $50,000
per year which is paid to the President in
a country which is considered-extravagant
in allowing Foreign Ministers from one
third to one-quarter the amount any other
first-class government does, and who con
sider the Congressman a bloated bondholder
on a salary of £I,OOO per year, would think
if the expenses of the President of the White
House amounted to $2,750,000 per annum.
I am looking with a shotgun for the man
who told me that living was cheap in Lon
don. I can assure you that with the excep
tion of the items of rent and gentlemen’s
clothing, everything in London costs nearly
twice as much as in America. Provisions
are exeeptronally dear, and the market is
anything but good, while servants’ wages
are cheap, they are so lazy that it takes so
many of them to do the work of one smart
man and woman that the aggregate wages
are about the same, and you are, in addi
tion, out of pocket for the amount they eat
and waste. I have been experimenting in
housekeeping for the past six months in the
hopes of solving the problem of living in
London. I have solved the problem, and
am insolvent in consequence. The hotels
are impossible, and lodging houses very
much the same, the point being in each case
that while you start in at a very reasonable
rate, the extras count up at such a rate that
your bills in a very short time are positively
appalling. Boarding houses, where you can
get, for a single man, a good room and
board from $8 to $lO a week, such as are
plenty in New York, are almost quite un
known on this side, for to live equally well
for a single man in London will cost him
$25 per week.
Much curiosity is evinced as to the desti
nation of Buffalo Bill aud his “Wild West”
after the close of the American Exhibition,
but Manager Salsbury and his “Star” keep
their own counsel very closely in regard to
The subscriptions of the Katharines,
Catherines, and Kates of England toward
erecting a fitting monument to Queen
Katherine of Aragon in Peterborough
Cathedral, has already reached a pretty
high figure. Being in‘the Cathedral a few
days ago, I read, among other donations,
that of the Duchess "Katharine” of West
minster, of £5. It seems now, that since
a gentleman has promised to place at his
own expense, a monumental brass over the
Queen’s remains, the ladies’ memorial
will take the form of a
stained gloss window. There are
only four brass letters left to mark the
place where the uhhappy Queen is buried
Cromwell’s soldiers having entirely des
troyed her tomb and all its belongings, so
that a monument of some sort is absolutely
necessary, unless we wish to lose sight alto
gether of the resting place of one of the
most estimable of Queens. By the way, in
a month or so the grave of Katharine is to
be opened, and it will be necessary to re
move it for a short time during the repairs,
which are actively progressing. This will
be a grand opportunity for those who, like
Mr. Pepys, wish to see a Queen, even if she
be dead, and may possibly lead to some
singular discoveries. According to an old
tradition, some important documents are
buried with this Queeu.
The late mad King of Bavaria's personal
effects have just been sold at Munich, in
order “to defray expenses”—in other words,
to raise a little capital, wherewith to pay off
his just debts. Tbe catalogue was an extra
ordinary one, and shows plainly the state of
tho monarch’s brain. A pair of scarlet
velvet trousers fetched the equivalent of
£lO. A toy steam engine, with silver
wheels, went for a song. A pair of musical
hairbrushes were not sold, owing to the
works having gone wrong, thus making tho
music mute. But, jierhaiis, tho funniest,
and yet withal the saddest thing in tho
whole collection, was the stuffed monkey
which was the King’s inseparable bedfellow
duriug the last few year's of his melancholy
The Brasseys have left Sydney in their
yacht Sunbeam. A good story is told to
the credit of Lord Tommy’s papa, which
rnns just like this. Iu the dawn of life
Lord Brassey’s papa was a young man with
lots of enorgy, a good character, and (it fol
lows) no cash. He was in the employ of a
Chester banker, Mr. Wardell. Being, like
his son s wife, of a pushing turn of mind,
he saw his way to enter on small contracts.
At last he was offered a very large railway
contract far beyond his means. In his ex
tremity he waited on his old master, laid the
facts of the case before him, and asked him
for a large advance. “But,” he con
cluded, “I have no security to offer you.”
“Yes, you have —the best —a good charac
ter. You shall have the money.” (Mr. War
dell lived before the days of defaulting cler
gymen.) Now comes the poetry of the affair.
Years after, when Brassey was a second
Croesus, a rumor got about that Warden’s
bank was shaky. Brassey heard of it and
sped to Chester. “I have just heard the bad
news. What sum do you require?” “Sev
eral hundreds of thousands,” was the hopeless
reply. “You shall have it.” “But I have
no security all.” “Yes you have—tbe best—
a good reputation.”
