Letter from Stat.”
Jersey City, Jan. 27th, 1889.
Editors Chronicle:—l saw today a
slip cut from yourselves in which you
threatened to advertis efor me if I did not
put in appeacance. I am sure neither
yourself or good readers will imagine that
my silence has been from any want of In
terest in either of you, for I have given
abundant testimony to the contrary in the
past. Really, consideration for you both
has kept me silent, for I had nothing new
to write about. From every section of the
broad land, I have written you; and I have
not ingenuity enough, or sufficiently acute
powers of observation, to imagine or see
something new m old places. If 1 gave
you the details, I should tire you, as they
not unfrequendy tire me.
I have spent nearly four years in hotels
now, and know the good ones afar off, and
the bad ones, I avoid. The best “ all
around” hotel in the country, is the Plank
enton, at Milwaukee. Ido not even make
an exception cf those in New York; the
best in Chicago, are not to be compared
with it. If you reach there at night, and
wear a stove-pipe bat, a,nd your coat looks
well, they put you in a $4.00 room. But
there is a luxury in everything around—a
large sitting room, velvet couches, rocking
chairs, etc,; both rooms attached, and your
bed in the cosiest alcove imaginable. One
night, is enough for glory. If you have
any sense, you will say to the Prince in
disguise—who deigns to act as a clerk—
that $5 00 is very handsome, but a cheaper
room would do you, as you only wanted a
place to sleep. He will then give you a
back room at $3 00; or, if you put on a
very poor mouth, he will send you to the
fourth floor at $2.50; but you must re
member, you have the same chance at the
table as the man who pays $4.00—-better,
perhaps, for walking down the steps gives l
you an appetite. You are not presumed
to walk up, unless you ignore the elevator,
which is not to be despised. I sent a lady
a copy of one of the menus of a large ho
tel, declared it made her feel hun
gry for a month—though I learn she still
keeps it on the mantle-piece, I presume, as
an appetizer^The apatiteVhich’ emtkL
not be satisfied among these viands, must
be capricious and, exacting. The vast ar
ray of French names are very confusing at
first, but if you want to experiment, if you
want to come anywhere near the name, the
waiter will help you out. You see “Pom
mesdetene.*’ It looks foimidable, but,
with a dry swallow, you try to pronouncs
it; the expert waiter catches on, he recogs
nizes the half swallowed and half pro
nounced word, and brings you Irish pota
toes, for that is what they are. I have ex*
perimAited along in my green days, bu f
was often too timid t® eat, it looked like 1
nothing in the earth, above it, or below it.’
The best thing 1 have ever eaten is Prairie
chicken. Sometimes Canvass-back duck
is the best of all eatables—but the next
time you order, you will probably get
“Puddle” duck. But when you travel
long, you will find that nothing goes fur
ther, and is more grateful, than roast beef
and steak. Ido not mean the kind that in
the long past Joe Keno used to vend, nor
the kind that Madison county, I presume
raises now; but beef fed on the sweet
grass ol Montana, then shipped to Chicago
killed, and hung m a refrigerator. Then
when eaten, you will appreciate why the
British are a great nation—they love beef.
No other meat is comparable to it, and you
would not know it, having eaten Athens
beef all these years. Cattle must be raised
for beef, to be good. An old cow may do
to sell as beef, but will never do to eat. An
old gentleman, years ago, in Athens, hav,
ing lost fcria molar teeth, “ bad some made
of zinc,” as he expressed it, “to chaw beef
steak,” and it showed what a level head he
had. The best $2 00 way-house in the
United States is the Philips, at Dayton,
Ohio. In nothing is it wanting, except
that the menu is not so elaborate; but
everything is just as well prepared as any*
where. If you tried many hotels, you
would wonder bow it is possible, with.the
ffline facilities, there can be so great a dT*
serer ce—one so perfect, and the other so
execrable. But I have learned the ways of
them, and I only go to a poor one when I
am obliged to do so. I was at one in Al
bany that trad nothing good about it ex
cept the price, $3 50 per day; and the pro
prietor sports a broad-cloth coat, a silk hat,
and a Pug dog, and well he may. A Euro
pean hotel is a delusion and a snare. Don’t
you go there, unless you can “feed ovV
1 among your friends. It looks very inviting
to see on your door “SI.OO per day,” but
when you try the restaurants, you will
find where the fun is. A steak, rolls, cup
of coffee, and buckwheat cakes, will cost
t you 80cls. to $1.00; and if you happen to
want a little variety, a mutton chop will
c >st you 50 cents; any ordering dinner,
i! will cost you at least $1 00. Tiue, the slice
i of beef they bring you is large enough for
i a small family, but you must really pay for
i a can to get it. Those are jour first meals'
Now, just let me whisper, give the waitei
, $1 00 to pay for your first breakfast. .He
[, brings you 20 cents in change on a silvei
| waiter; you divide with him, leaving ten
cents for him, and don’t forget to leave it
every time, and. you wilt be astonished to
see how ucAicb cheaper your meals come.—
The waiter has the pricing, and he remem*
bers your thoughtfulness. My breakfast
cost 80 cents, and for the waiter, 10 cents ;
my dinner, including apple dumpling,
(baked elegantly) cost 65 cents—a clear
i saving to me of a quarter. I have that
j much of ths mule about me, I have learned
t by experience.
r You do not see here, in full career, the
t Chicago drummer. As he gets East, if he
, comes, he i? like other mortals—he dwarfs.
t But put him out West, where he breathes,
. and talks—(Chicago, in fact, lives in an
! atmosphere;charged with Chicago, which
r he creates) —then you see him, and he is
> sui generis. He rushes into a hotel, slams
. the front dorir, wants a sample room, and
j then, in a lower voice—the only time he
. ever speaks low—says, T want a $2.50
t rate." It is the only time in the day when
. he descends*to the plane of morals. He
will orders at a table, keep
, more than a table full of New
York drummerl-thus out West. I was in
doubts at first who these were, thinking
possibly the proprietor, or maybe the chief
clerk of the jiotel, had forgotten his dig<-
nity and was dining with common folks.—
But soon you would hear ‘‘Chicago,” which
made his status as plain as the ears on the
donkey. But-there is no harm in them
only their noi ,e, but it runs in the family’
You have never traveled in a steam
heated car—p’jje wood and coal too cneap
in Georgia— I have often read of ac
cidents, and man being pinned down by the
overturned seats and then being burned to
death. That was, of course, more horrible
than being mashed up. Now, the princi
pal roads are heated by steam from the
engine, with, of course, perfect safety from
burning. But how about being par -boiled
while alive? I presume in intensely cold
weather, they would be most agreeable;
but in the moderate weather we have had >
it is almost insufferable. I fanned, just as
I have done in Summer, except that the
car was fiottei than any weather I ever
felt. I hope I shall find no more of them.
I have been writing all this time hoping
to “say something," and if your readers go
through this letter, they will thank me for
my silence of the past two months. Wish

t Dead by a Coward.
' Little Rock, Ark., January 30.
John M. Clayton, brother of Powell
' Clayton, was assassinated at Plummer
ville, Ark , last night by some unknown
’ person who fired a load of buckshot
through a window, breaking Clayton’s
n.ck and billing him instantly. Mr. Clay
ton was candidate for congress at the
‘ recent election against C. R. Breckenridge,
and had served upon Mr. Breckenridge a
‘ notice of content of his seat in the fifty-
P first congres.. Nothing has become pub—
lie any manner explains the
murder. Plummervilie is a small village
in Conway county. The murder occurred
at a hotel.
The remains of John M. Clayton were
brought to this city tonight, and were met
t at the depot by the Knights Templar com
, mandery and a vast concourse of people,
and escorted to the commandery asylum,
’ where they lie in state till tomorrow, to
I be taken to Pine Bluff for interment.
The fatal wound is a very ugly one. A
’ charge of fifteen buckshot, entered the
3 right side of the head, tearing a hole in
j which a man could run his fist.
