THE SCltANTutf TBIBUNE WEDNESDAY MORNING. NOVEMBER 4, 1896.
OUR EMBASSY AT
THE ENGLISH CAPITAL
Don Nat Cob port With Oar Importance
as a Natioe.
SALARIES PAID ARE TOO SMALL
Some of the Distinguished Men Who
Have Represented the Sovereignly
of the Republic at the Court of St.
JasnefOur Ambassador Always a
Much Bought for Man Socially.
What it Done at the American Con
sulate Ceneral"ircf and Official
From the 8trand Magazine.
The first duty of an American am
bassador upon his arrival in London Is
to obtain an interview with the Secre
tary of State for Foreign Affairs, and
to deliver to him u copy of his letter
of credence. The secretary of the em
bassy usually notllles thu foreign sec
retary of the ambassador's arrival, nnU
In this way. prepares for the Interview.
Afterward, on a duy tixed, the necre
tary of state presents the ambassador
to the sovereign, to whom the ambas
sador delivers the original letter of
credence. On the same iluv. or as soon
as convenient, the ambassador begins
a series of social calls upon the secre
tary of state and members of the royal
Circle. The ambassadress, meanwhile,
pays visits to the wives, and In this
way the Bocial Intercourse which con
tinues throughout the ambassador's
term of office is immediately establish
ed. Important as the duties of the am
bassador in the transmission of mes
sages from the Department of State
to the British government may be at
a certain time, a great part of his lab
or and that of his subordinates consists
in attention to social and court func
tions, and the most successful minis
ters of the past hundred years have
been those who have most punctilious
ly attended to their performance. A
glance at the diary of John Qulncy
Adams will show that the London
evenings of that noted man were
spent in society. He danced, talked,
played cards and made himself gener
ally agreeable to those about him. His
diplomatic success was accordingly
enormous. The triumphs of Motley
and Lowell were gained In the same
Way, and Mr. Uayard's present pres
tige in England is due greatly to his
popularity in the social world. The
diplomatic battles of the present day
are won at dinners and in quiet talks,
and he who most ably represents the
United States in London is he who fol
lows his government's Instructions
and omits "no occasion to muintain
the most friendly personal and social
relations with the members of the gov
ernment and of the diplomatic body at
the place of residence."
PERSONAL TACT VALUABLE.
In such a work the value of personal
tact, courtesy and education cannot be
overestimated. The demands made
upon them are continual, whether at
the dinner tuble or on the platform,
at the country house or at court. In
the possession of these qualities the
ministers whom the United States has
sent to England, from the Adamses to
Phelps and Lincoln, have been pecu
liarly fortunate, and to the present
ambassador a title which has belong
ed to Mr. Ha yard since his country
rose to the first rank among nations
has been left the heriluge of a position
which is well-nigh priceless. For years
the "American minister" occupied a
Unique place In London. His speeches
v ci fiiiiiti.il anil tliu nroB.nra annc-tir
.".-, f'v..wv o -
when other diplomatists were appar
ently neglected. The traditions have
been maintained by Mr. liayard.
Society, however, costs money, and
London Is a most expensive place to live
In. Consequently, the nipgunlly salar
ies which the United States gives to Its
diplomatic agents In London quickly
disappears, leaving them to depend up
on their own private purses for the
wherewithal to maintain the dignity of
their government. Many protest! have
been made by the past ministers, from
John Adams down, but these forcible
presentations of a disgraceful fact have
had little Influence with the home gov
ernment. Adams at one time wrote to
Jay asking him to "consider that the
single circumstance uf presenting a
family at court will make a difference
of several hundred pounds sterling In
my Inevitable annual expenses," but
nothing was done to relieve the minis
ter from the 'Inevitable." The money
goes In a variety of ways. If the queen
holds a drawing room or the Prince of
Wales a levee, the diplomatic corps Is
expected -to be present, and court dress
costs anywhere from two hundred dollars-
Besides this, the family of the
ambassador is expected to be present,
and every one In London society knows
that the bill for a lady's court dress is
almost as long as the train. Ambassa
dors with a goodly number of daugh
ters are accordingly at a distinct finan
cial disadvantage. The ambassadress,
moreover. Is supposed not to appear
twice at a drawing room In the same
dress, and this rule imposes an addi
tional financial burden. Then there are
dinners to be given, receptions to be
held on Washington's birthday and
Fourth of July, the regular weekly re
ception which Mr. Bayard now gives
to his compatriots to be maintained,
and a turn-out to be supported, in or
der that too much of the government's
time may not be wasted In the city of
One can quickly estimate the amount
of money which a necessary attention
to such ceremony costs to a minister on
a small salary. The present wage Is
$17,600. How sorry this pittance looks
beside the 132,500 and the sumptuous
mansion which the British govern
ment gives to Sir Julian Pauncefote,
Its representative In Washington.
There Is little doubt, however, that
an ambassador would willingly bear all
the expenses which fall upon him, as Is
the case with others of his rank. If the
house In which he lived belonged to
his nation. The United States in this
respect stands in a unique and unen
viable position. All other nations give
to their ambassadors a mansion which,
through continuous use by successive
ambassadors, becomes the real em
bassy. The American ambassador, on
the other hand. Is forced to hire a, fur
nished house. He does not dare to buy
a mansion, or to furnish one. because
he knows that his term of olllce may
not last longer than four years; and he
cannot feel sure that his successor will
relieve him from the burden of a costly
mansion. If congress were the least
bit sensitive to appearances, It would
quickly put an end to the "furnished
house" system, and give to the ambas
sador a mansion of which the nation
might be proud.
THE COURT COSTUME.
.. 'What shall I wear at court?" is a
question which has puzzled every en
voy which the United States, for mpv
seasons pant, has sent to England, r1
very amuslnz are the stories told of
the ministerial struggles with this most
important matter of dress. The trouble
has been due to the strictness of the
rules which govern the court functions,
as well as to the restrictions put upon
the ministers by congress. Of the one,
it is well known that the official court
costume is a detail which has to be
rigidly conformed with, else ' a guest
cannot pass her majesty. When Mr.
Dallas was In London he took two great
military dignitaries of the United
States to court, but one of them was
not allowed to pass the queen because
be wort a black cravat, had no chapeau
and no sword. The minister thereupon
Withdrew aracefully with his friend.
Regarding the provisions of congress
upon this point of costume, the printed
rules instruct officers to conform "to
the requirements of law prohibiting
them from wearing any uniform or of
ficial costume not previously authorised
by congress." The taste of congress
has been expressed in favor of "the
simple dress of an American citizen."
and there have been several official
hints that the dress which Franklin
wore at the court of France ought to
be taken as a model. Evidently con
gress forgot that the reason for Frank
lin's appearance In Quaker dress, with
home-knit woolen stockings, was due,
not to an austere democratic feeling In
our minister, but to a general curios
ity in the court to see the American
who had so quickly sprung into popu
larity. Mr. Buchanan was one of those who
did not know what to wear. He was
perfectly willing to accord With the
wishes of his government, but he early
Discovered that the "simple dress of
an American citizen" was vcrv nearly
that of the upper court servant. At
one time, therefore, he thought of put
ting on "United States buttons," and
at another time of donning the civil
dress of George Washington, He sac
rificed the buttons because a plain
dress sword had a more manly and less
gaudy appearance and he abandoned
the Washington costume after looking
at the Stuart portrait of the first
president. Buchanan finally appeared
at a levee, as be says, "in Just such a
dress as I have worn at the President's
a hundred times." The costume con
sisted of a black coat, white waistcoat,
black pantaloons and dress boots, with
the addition of a very plain, black
handled and black-hllted dress sword.
It was a victory for Mr. Buchanan's
conscience, but the costume must have
given the lord chamberlain a twinge.
The present court costume Is such as
might be worn in Washington ut the
presidential mansion, and is merely
the usual evening dress of black broad
cloth, silk stockings and low shoes.
THE EMBASSY. .
The embassy is the place through
which the government of the Untied
States converses and consults wlih the
government of Great Britain the am
bassador acting as go-betweun. Many
of these negotiations require the great
est secrecy, and it Is therefore not sur
prising to find the embassy a very sub
dued sort of place, with several rooms
which the ordinary visitor never sees.
The embassy Is at 123 Victoria street,
about live minutes' walk from West
minster Abbey, and in close proximity
to the offices of the British govern
ment. It Is not an Imposing building.
In fact, it is not a building at all. but
rather a first (loorllat In a row of
"mansions." Democracy has stamped
Itself upon the exterior and interior,
for there is nothing about our embassy
which would lead the most parsi
monious of Americans to charge his
foreign representatives with luxury
Ill one of the invisible rooms sits Mr.
liuvard. Although he Is not by nature
an exclusive man, he Is, through force
of circumstances, compelled to hide
himself from the large body of visitors
who seek the embassy, and the lucky
ones who see him are those who have
come upon government business. Con
sequently, the American toruist who
goes to Victoria street rarely finds It
possible to pay his "respects" to the
ambassador. This is as it should be,
for, during the summer season, the em
bassy is the objective point of all
Americans who want to get into the
house of commons or the royal stables,
or who wish a multitude of other things
which they think the embassy can se
cure. If the ambassador were in per
son, to meet all the demands the gov
ernment business would never be fin
ished. The consulate is closely connected
with the business world, and Is situated
at 12 St. Helen's place, ltishopsgate,
right In the heart of the city of Lon
don, easy of access to the thousand and
one shippers and merchants who need
Its help every week of the year. We
shall say nothing of the smallness of
the place and its meanness of appear
ance, but will try to show the connec
tion between the consul and the Ameri
can citizen abroad. The duties of the
consul are varied enough to keep him
emphatically busy. If two shops be
longing to the United States at sea, the
consul receives the protests and reports
of the angry captains. If the American
child Is born or a citizen dies in Lon
don the consul authenticates the birth
and death. He administers estates. He
sends home shipwrecked or unemployed
sailors and other destitute persons. He
acts as arbitrator in commercial dis
putes between his fellow-countrymen,
and he certifies to the value of every
Invoice of foreign goods above a cer
tain amount shipped from Lon
don to the United States. His
spare time Is spent In col
lecting Information upon commercial,
economic and political matters for the
benefit of his government. For nearly
all of the work, besides his regular
salary, he gets fees, which In the case
of London are said to be worth about
Notwithstanding his Importance, the
consul Is not a diplomatic agent of thn
United States. He is sent to his post
for mercantile purposes, and as a pro
tector of his fellow-dtlzens In the dis
trict he represents. For these reasons,
he possesses no diplomatic Immunity.
Unlike the ambassador, who, accord
ing to the old-time custom, is supposed
to contain within his person the sover
eignty of his monarch, the person of
the consul is not inviolable. He pays
taxes, but the atnbassadcr does not.
He is subject to the laws cf the coun
try, whereas the ambassador possesses
Immunity from civil Jurisdiction, and
he, as well as the least of his official
subordinates and servants, cannot be
sued, arrested or puul3hed.
As at the embassy, a friendly wel
come always awaits the "reveler at the
consulate, and everything is done by
the officials to make bis r.tay in Lon
don pleasurable anci prcVable. The
sweetness of democracy may be tasted
In both places, for tl-cre Is little red
tape, and the accessibility which has
been a marked quality in oftlclal per
sonages in the United States Is also
to be noted in London. Ceitainly there
Is little reason for the American to be
ashamed of the way in which he is
UNCLE ISHAM AND THE DEES.
An Old Hen, Much to Her Own Sor
row, Went to His Rescue.
Woodbine, Mlss.,Corr. Philadelphia Times.
Uncle Isham was whitewashing at
our nliit p the other dav. when a swarm
of bees in full wing chanced to per- t
vado the atmosphere. Now, bees ore
much dearer to the heart of Uncle I
Isham than whitewashing. though !
whitewashing Is his profession, so I
was not surprised when the old man
dropped his brush head and ears In ihe
bucket, strlghtened his crooked back
and hobbled rapidly up to the dor:
"Gimme de dinenf bell, mistis," he
"What is it?" I asked.
"Bees," he whispered, and I got the
bell. I knew the old man's weakness.
Besides, It is not uninteresting to see
a swarm of bees hived from a perfect
ly safe distance, understand. The bees
showed some signs of making a raid
on a honeysuckle vine that was In full
bloom on my trellis, but the queen
seemed dainty about making a land
ing. She buzed and whirled and shifted
with the swarm at her heels till the air
was black with bees, but resolutely In
the midst, with his bell ringing, stood
Uncle Isham alone and unprotected,
yet with his face to the foe. I couldn't
tell whether the swarm was moving
with the old man or he was moving
with the swarm, the bees were so thick
about him, but the group kept un a
continual migration till at last the door
of my little poultry yard was reached.
A heavily blossomed rose bush grew
just beside the gate, and upon this, at
length, the queeen seemed to have
made up her mind to light. She made
a dive downward, the swarm following,
when, just at the critical moment, a
hen from the poultry yard, with a loud
cackle, flew from her nest Into the
very midst of the swarm.
"Drat dat ole fool hen!" I heard Un
cle Isham say, and I thought the game
What those bees and that hen really
thought. It was impossible to mate
with accuracy, but they evidently
seemed to think that some mutually
reacting kind of cyclone business had
been let loose In their midst. For a
moment or two there appeared to be
Just a conglomerate mixture of bees
and hen in midair, and by and by,
when they came down, they were liter
ally all there and all togteher. The
queen, who had no doubt been knocked
"perfectly silly," was comfortably es
tablished on the hen's back, while the
whole swarm clung around her. The
poor hen was bedecked from tip to
beak, and could not move a feather.
Uncle Isham, very much surprised at
the turn of affairs, got a box and soon
had the swarm safely hived, much to
the poor hen's relief.
A Mystery to the Learned Men W ho
Ilnvc Studied 1 bcm.
From Tid Bits.
For centuries past the ingenuity of
learned men has been exercised on the
Noraghe of Sardinia, hut to this day
they have no more been abl. to dis
cover the origin of these famous build
in irs than had the Komans before them.
They are unable to say whethtr they
were us?d for tombs or tire temples,
for trophies of victory, for obsctva
torles. or inertly for human dwelling
More than 3.000 of them have been
counted in Sardinia, standing on arti
ficial mounds thirty or sixty feet hih.
and mcHuiing at the base 100 to 200
tett in lireuinft-rcnc. They are us
ually In the shape of towers, built with
Immense blocks of stone, roughly hewn
with hammers. No cement is us.-il In
their stiueture, nor is there any in
scription to indicate their oilgin.
A low entrance at one sld leads into
a long and lofty passage, communicat
ing by a very low door with a doomed
chamber beyond. On cither side of this
small cells have been formed In the
walls. A spiral staircase, rising steep
ly from the dome, leads to another, but
somewhat smaller chamber above, and
ugaln beyond this to the broken top
of the Nornghe.
Nothing hus been found within these
buildings and to this day their ex
istence is a mystery.
In the same vicinity other buildings
have been discovered, which are no less
puzzling to antiquaries. The general
opinion Is that they were built for the
purpose of burying giants.
The most Interesting archaeological
mysteries of this country are the Denes
of Essex and Middlesex. They are
perpendicular shafts sunk In the earth,
with lateral caves at the bottom, but
the purpose for which they were dug
out has never been discovered. It Is
possible, however, that they might
have been used as granaries, or even
as places of refuge In time of trouble.
The Itathes of Kerry form an Inter
esting study, the only conclusion that
has been arrived a, however, being
thut they were inhabited at some re
mote age by a race of dwarfs. The dis
trict Is covered with hundreds of green
mounds, beneath which, when the
earth has been removed, it Is seen that
there are tiny underground buildings,
A small opening, through which u
man Is barely able to crawl on his
hands and knees, gives access to the in
closed and walled-in space beyond,
which is divided into several smaller
chambers. Each one communicates
with the other by a small hole, a simi
lar aparture being made In the outer
wall for the purpose of ventilation.
A rude fireplace is sometimes found la a
remote corner, but no outlet beyond
the holes for ventilation is provided
for the smoke. Very little more than
this is known about these mysterious

"Is that possible?" asked the man at

"Perhaps I did. What was It?"
She unfolded the paper and pointed to

some heavy pen marks.
The man at the desk read: "Just be

the ladles were about to put on their

a bombshell Into the meeting by declar

"Well?" queried the woman.
"What do you want me to do?"
The young woman blushed again. "I

"And If you won't correct P. then I

PER C A FIT A DEBTS OF EUROPE.
It will bo news to most people to learn
thut according to the latest statistics ev
ery baby horn in France is from Its blrtn
!:"! francs CO centimes in d-bi. The na
tional debt of France Is greater than th.it
of any country In the world, amounting
to 33,423,000.000 francs, or about 7,W.i,ilW.im
After France, say Portugal Is the big
gest debtor. Each little Portuguese .who
conies Into the world Is 09 francs In debt.
King Humbert of Italy rule over sub
jects whose share of the national debt Is
405 francs each.
The debt of the Germans Is 2.131.000 .000
francs, much less than that of France. The
French pay an average of SS francs taxes
each year, while the fierman tHX averaaes
44 francs per individual. This Is becauso
the republican form of government, as
practice! In the lard of l Illy, la more ex
pensive then th- mocarchial.
Another reason why Germany Is better
off financially Is because hfr noyulation Is
on the increase In spite of the enormous
emigration yearly. Germany is the mot
