商务部:担保疫情防控时事下居民消费需要

商务部:担保疫情防控时事下居民消费需要  The people of Hannibal are not more changed than is the town.It is no longer a village; it is a city, with a mayor, and a council,and water-works, and probably a debt. It has fifteen thousand people,is a thriving and energetic place, and is paved like the restof the west and south--where a well-paved street and a good sidewalkare things so seldom seen, that one doubts them when he does see them.The customary half-dozen railways center in Hannibal now,and there is a new depot which cost a hundred thousand dollars.In my time the town had no specialty, and no commercial grandeur;the daily packet usually landed a passenger and bought a catfish,and took away another passenger and a hatful of freight; but now a hugecommerce in lumber has grown up and a large miscellaneous commerceis one of the results. A deal of money changes hands there now.

  I got my friends into my stateroom, and said I was sorry to createannoyance and disappointment, but that upon reflection it reallyseemed best that we put our luggage ashore and stop over at Napoleon.Their disapproval was prompt and loud; their language mutinous.Their main argument was one which has always been the first to cometo the surface, in such cases, since the beginning of time:'But you decided and AGREED to stick to this boat, etc.; as if,having determined to do an unwise thing, one is thereby bound to go aheadand make TWO unwise things of it, by carrying out that determination.

  But no matter what I began to suspect. Hear him--

  'I blow my breath,' said the old man, 'and the stream stands still.The water becomes stiff and hard as clear stone.'

  The city is well outfitted with progressive men--thinking, sagacious,long-headed men. The contrast between the spirit of the city andthe city's architecture is like the contrast between waking and sleep.Apparently there is a 'boom' in everything but that one dead feature.The water in the gutters used to be stagnant and slimy, and a potentdisease-breeder; but the gutters are flushed now, two or three times a day,by powerful machinery; in many of the gutters the water never stands still,but has a steady current. Other sanitary improvements have been made;and with such effect that New Orleans claims to be (during the longintervals between the occasional yellow-fever assaults) one of thehealthiest cities in the Union. There's plenty of ice now for everybody,manufactured in the town. It is a driving place commercially, and hasa great river, ocean, and railway business. At the date of our visit,it was the best lighted city in the Union, electrically speaking.The New Orleans electric lights were more numerous than those of New York,and very much better. One had this modified noonday not only in Canaland some neighboring chief streets, but all along a stretch of fivemiles of river frontage. There are good clubs in the city now--several of them but recently organized--and inviting modern-style pleasureresorts at West End and Spanish Fort. The telephone is everywhere.One of the most notable advances is in journalism. The newspapers,as I remember them, were not a striking feature. Now they are.Money is spent upon them with a free hand. They get the news, let it costwhat it may. The editorial work is not hack-grinding, but literature.As an example of New Orleans journalistic achievement, it may bementioned that the 'Times-Democrat' of August 26, 1882, contained areport of the year's business of the towns of the Mississippi Valley,from New Orleans all the way to St. Paul--two thousand miles.That issue of the paper consisted of forty pages; seven columns to the page;two hundred and eighty columns in all; fifteen hundred words to the column;an aggregate of four hundred and twenty thousand words. That is to say,not much short of three times as many words as there are in this book.One may with sorrow contrast this with the architecture of New Orleans.
