Why 23 Men Have Held the Highest

shall be Tested in a
President of the
United States o f
America," says the
same instrument fur
ther provides for a
ViceVresident, who shall preside over the
Senate and succeed the President in the
event of his removal, death, resignation or
inability to perform the duties ot the office.
These two officials are elected by the same
bodies, the Electoral Colleges, at the same
time, and their terms begin and expire to
gether. Yet General Harrison is the twenty-third
President, while Mr. Morion is but
the twenty-second Vice President Seven
Presidents were re-elected: Washington,
Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, Jackson, Lin
coln and Grant; while hut four Tice Presi
dents Adams, Clinton, Tompkinsjand Cal
houn were accorded that distinction.
Three Vice Presidents Adams, Jefferson
and Van Buren were afterward elected to
the Presidency, and four Tyler, Fillmore,
Johnson and Arthur succeeded to it upon
the death of the President. Had all the
Presidents lived through their terms
General Harrison would be the 19th Pres
ident, hut Mr. Morton would remain the
22nu Vice President.
VICE PKKSIDEN'TS RE-ELECTED.
As it is, seven Presidents have been re
elected and only four Vice Presidents. That
would make the number ot Vice Presidents
three the greater, but four Vice Presidents
becan e Presidents by succeion, making
two Presidents in one term, with the net
result of making General Harrison the 23rd
President and Mr. Morton the 22ad Vice
President. .Five Vice Presidents Clinton,
Gerry, King, "Wilson and Hendricks have
died in office.
The first Vice President to fail in his am
bition to reach the greater place was Aaron
G rorge Clinton.
Burr, the most subtle and mvsterious char
acter that has yet appeared in American
public life. He was born in 2few York in
IT06. and died on Staten Island about 80
years later. His brilliant military career
in the devolution, bis subsequent in
tricrues. and his disgrace are matters of fa'
miliar history. In 1830 the Itepublicans
ran Jettersonand Iluir, and in the Electoral
Colleges their votes tied. Uurr was chosen
Vice President after a seven days' struggle.
Hear the close ot his term he ran for Gov
ernor of Xew York and was -defeated by
THE CAMPAIGN' VAS A IIOT ON'E,
and some expressions Hamilton nsed in his
letters got into print. Burr seized on these
to force a duel. The two men met at 'Wee
hawken at 7 a. m. on J uly 7, 1804. Hamil
ton was mortally wounded at the first fire.
Burr retired from the field unhurt in body,
but nevertheless a ruined man.
George Clinton of Xew York succeeded
Burr as Vice President. He was born in
1739 and died in "Washington in 1812. He
was a delegate to the Continental Congress,
f er ed in the French "War and the Bevolu-
tion, and was chosen the first Governor of
Zew York. He received 3 electoral votes
for Vice President at the first PresidenUl
election and 50 tor President at the second.'
He wa elected Vice President in 1801 and
re-elect din 1808.
tlbridge Gerrv, who succeeded George
Clinton as Vice President, gave his name
to the redistneung of a State for partisan
advantage in a "gerrymander." It was
first done in Massachusetts when he was
Governor in 1810-11. Gerry was born in
1744 and died in 1814. In his three score
and ten years he performed many honora
ble actions. ""

out troops and sending them to the field
contributed largely to national suceess.
Born in 1774, he began public life in 1801,
as a member of the Legislature. He was
a member of Congress, a Justice of the Su
preme Court of the State and Governor
irom 1807 to 1817, when he resigned, having
been elected Viee President. In his last
year as Governor of New York, in a mes
sage to the Legislature, he recommended
the total abolition of slavery in If ew "lore,
and an act for that purpose was accordingly
passed to take effect July 4, 1827.
The celebrated John C. Calhoun now be
came Vice President, serving as such dur
ing the Presidency ot John Quincy Adams
and the first term of Andrew Jackson.
Martin Van Buren held the place during
Jackson's second term, and is the last of the
Vice Presidents to be elected President.
As President he had Kichard Mentor John
son for Vice. Johnson was born at Bryant's
Station, Ky.. in 1781, while it was indeed
the "dark and bloody ground." He served
in Congress almost continuously trom lb07
to 1819, in which year he was elected to the
Senate, serving till 1829, when he again en
tered the House, serving till 1837, when he
became Vice President.
A FASIOTTS PENNSYLVANIA!?.
George M. Dallas was James Buchanan's
great rival in his own State. Born in 1792
he began life by accompanying Albert Gal
latin as private secretary to Europe in 1813,
to negotiate a treaty with England. Ee
turning the following year he assisted his
father, then Secretary of the Treasury, and
subsequently practiced law. He was suc
cessively Mayor of Philadelphia, United
States Senator, Attorney Generalof Penn

he visited Cuba early in 1853 in the hope of
restoring it, and was there on the 4th of
.March. 15 v a special act ot Congress be
was enabled to take the oath of office there.
He returned to this countrv, but without
his health restored, and died the day after
reaching his home in Alabama.
John Cabell Breckinridge, elected in
185G with James Buchanan, who had

the yonngest man ever chosen to the office of
Vice President. Born in 1821, he was barely
past the Constitutional ace. His career and
those of the subseqnent Vice Presidents of

A FRISKY DEBUTANTE
Clara Belle's Realistic Account of
the First Appearance of
MARY AKDERSOfl IN NEW YORK.
She Dressed Like a Country Greenhorn and
Was Very fond of
CHEWING GU3I AND JtfOLASSES CASDI
HE sudden stoppage
of Miss Mary Ander
son's acting, and the
mystery maintained as
to her illness, led your
correspondent to seek
out Mr. Stephen
Fiske, who was the
manager who origin
allv introduced her'to
New York. Mr. Jtfiske
said that no other actress had ever been so
cared for during her earlier seasons. Her
mother was her dresser and stood at the
wings, watching her, prompting her and
waiting for her with a shawl or cloak. Her
stepfather was always in the front of the
house. Both accompanied her home after
"Whoever or whatever had happened to
separate them and break up the wonderful
family was responsible for Miss Anderson's
nervous condition. Her work in the thea
ter was much lighter than ever before; she
spared herself more, and she was too strong
to be injured by the easy railroad journeys.
Her trouble, however caused, came from
some influence outside the theater, where
she was as much at home as if she had been
born on the stage.
"Yes, I was the manager of the Fifth
Avenue Theater when Mary Anderson made
her debut in Hew York," said Mr. Stephen
Fiske, "and I well remember what a lovely
young girl she was and what a strange
party she made with her mother and her
steptather, Dr. Griffin. Of all the green
horns that ever landed in this oity the Mary
Anderson party were the most verdant at
that time. But they had pluck and luck
and talent and fully deserve their subse
AX IGNORANT PABTY.
"It was impossible not to be interested in
the party, they were so friendless, so help
less, and so "ignorant of the world. She
bad no friends in New York to whom to
send boxes and seats on her first night.
Nobody called upon her. She literally
knew nobody out of the theater, and the
party were happy if they could stay in the
theater from 'early morning to bedtime.
Everything was left for me to do; but they
never appreciated this. On the contrary,
their ignorance made them suspicious.
They were so afraid of being thought inex
perienced that they appeared presumptu
ous. "When I came to talk about the costumes
for "The Lady of Lyons," Mrs. Griffin
seemed astonished that a man should know
everything about what a lady should wear,
and told me that she had always dressed her
daughter correctly, and that. I had better
leave the costumes to her. Dr. Griffin
proudly remarked that he did not intend to
spend a cent upon new costumes; that what
was good enough for Boston was good enough
for New York. My offer to present Mary
with a new dress for Pauline if she would
go to the store and order it was indignantly
refused. Mary looked like a tall scarecrow
on the street, and people turned to laugh at
her. Mrs. Griffin was always ladylike. In
her youth she must have been even hand
somer than her daughter.
"Presently, lawyers' clerks began to in
fest the theater lobby, and then, in self
defense, Dr. Griffin had to tell me the truth.
Old Louisville judgments against him had
been transferred to creditors here and levies
would be made upon Mary Anderson's share
of the receipts. After I had arranged this
matter satifactorily the party concluded
that I was really frfendly and thawed toward
me a little. Mrs. Griffin had been Mary's
instructress in elocution. Dr. Griffin had
cut the plays for her. She had b-en under
the tuition of Mr. Vanderhoff forfiveweeks,
but that had only unsettled her. All were
greedy of praise and resented anything like
criticism. Mary loved to act. She told me

PITTSBURG - DISPATCH,
that after her first appearance as an amateur
at Louisville, in 'JRichard the Third,' she
longed to act the tragedy all over again
'and I did holler in the last act, she added,
"Atlast the night of her New York debut
arrived. It was Monday, November 12,
1877. I had engaged a very good company
to support her. Eben Plvmpton was the
Claudi, John Moore the De'schapples, Louise
Eldridge the Madame Deschapplcs, Mrs.

money and a good paper house. Never was
a Pauline attired in such execrable taste.
The ladies of the audience could not con

after the mariage, Miss Anderson's fine
voice and splendid physique captured every
body. 'Evadne,' 'Guy Mannering' and
HEK FIRST SUCCESS.
As Parthenia, in "Ingomar," she made
her first artistic success. She looked a pict
ure in her 6tmple costume, and her manner
ot saying, "Igo to cleanse the cup," en
chanted the audience. In "Evadne" she
declaimed magnificently; but her sole idea
of acting was to realize, in the statue scene,
the popular picture, "Simply to Thy Cross
I Cling." As Bianca, in "Fazio," she
wore modern costumes and, but tor her
vouthful beauty, would have been absurd.
For her farewell benefit she played the
sleep-walking scene lrom "Macbeth," and
was very stilted and declamatory. Indeed,
throughout the whole engagement, she
played to tke gallery and was most eager
On the first night, having counted up the
house which I had to do personally, so
suspicious was Dr. Griffin of being cheated
by subordinates I started home forsupper,
when it occurred to me that perhaps Miss
Anderson would like something to eat after
her hard work. So I called at Dr. Griffin's
rooms, in West Twenty-eighth street, and
found theuture queen of traced? eating a
cold pork chop as she sat on a trunk. No
table was laid; there was no preparation for
supper. The whole party accepted my invi
tation.and we went to the nearest restaurant.
I dared not take my star to Delmonico's in
her eccentric costume and yet she looked
splendidly handsome in spite of her common
and not even tidy clothes.
SUE LIKED CANDY.
On our way we passed a candy store, and
Mary looked so longingly at the window
that I asked whether she would like some
candies. "Oh, yes," she cried, and jumped
up and down on the pavement with pleas
ure. She selected a pound of molasses
cream-drops and commenced to eat them at
once. The supper began with oysters on
the half-shell. To see Mary Anderson eat
ovsters and candy alternately was terrible;
but a handsome girl may do anything unre
buked. The .papers were very kind to Miss An
derson during her firstf engagement. The
critics were conquered by her personal
charms. As much as possible was made of
the facts that she was the daughter of a
Confederate soldier and a rigid Catholic.
She was always written about as a Ken
tucky girl, although she was born in Cali
fornia. In truth she reminded everybody
of a Kentucky 2-year-old she was so tall,
so long-limbed and so full ot promise.
After awhile Henry Watterson, who had
knorfn her in Louisville, came to town and
took an interest in her. He brought ex
Governor Tilden to see her and Tilden ad
mired her so much that he was taken behind
the scenes to be introduced to the new star,
and whispered to me, in his confidential
manner, 'What a remarkably handsome
girl! No actress but how very hand
some!" JEALOUS 6F 5IODJESKA.
"Miss Anderses told me, at this time,
that she was born July 28, 1859. This
would make her in her thirtieth year now.
She has been upon the stage two seasons,
having made her formal debut at
Macauley's Theater, Louisville, November
27, 1875, in 'Borneo and Juliet.' Modjeska
was underlined to follow her, at the Filth
Avenue, and she was very jealous ot
Modjeska's advance notices and still more
of my advice to study the finished .style of
acting of the Polish Countess. During the
opening night of Modjeska's engagement
she would come to the theater, look around
at the empty seats and say, cheerily, 'Your
great actress doesn't draw any better than I
did, eh?' But this feeling was quite imper
sonal. It was the delightful vanity of a

A Brink Local Demand for Fine Pletorei
Some of the Remit of Late Sale Here.
Is there a market for fine paintings i
Pittsburg? Pretty good evidence there i
can be found in late sales here. A month
or so ago, the house of P.eichardt & Co.,j
Xew York, seat to this citv a number
pictures from which purchases to-'tha
amount of 28,000 were made, by lovers of art
within the two weeks of their stay. Later,
Mr. Collins, also of New York, brought
a lot of attractive canvasses, and his sales, with
in ten daTO amounted to 112.000. There is
another very tine collection at Gillespie's,'

Pittsburg has not yet shown anything like th'
craze or pretensions to connoiseurship in re

here; but there is a feeling of liberality evWJf
dently growing which must be encouraging not M
only to those collectors of New York who send 'i
on their wares to this city, but also to our local A
artists. These latter do not fail to recognizee
the value of the excellent pictures coming from. j
abroad, from an educative point of view.

being educated up to the line points of art, also '
to the higher values. One of them speaking oa
the subject a day or two ago said: "In the old
times the price of S500 would seem to soma
people to warrant a picture about the size of '
the side of a house: and the considerations of
color, of composition and of the drawing we'fa '
insufficiently taken into account. But the day
of cheap and crude pictures and of chromo pro- L

also free to confess these exhibitions of ad- f
vantage to themselves. "So far, we have hlth- )
erto been obliged to go abroad in order to see tha
finest paintings. Now we can get a glimpse of,
some of these at home. Thus our people In
