Kr, 3IcAlllster Also Advocates the
tablitahment of a Herald's Oftice as On
of the Government Apartments Kighl
of Americans to Wear Crests.
The number of persons using crests
and coats of arms in this country is very
large, and there is no way of ascertain
ing how large it is. Tho American whe
wants a coat of arms and has not got
one usually adopts one which pleases his
eye, without regard to any other consid
erations. In England supporters are sel
dom granted with coats of arms to any
but members of tho peerage. But Anier
cans mv.ft have everything of the finest,
and therefore they usually take support
ers to themselves. There is one very
rich and famous family in this city,
though of humble origin, which isplays
a coat of arms with four supporters in
stead of tho two which usually satisfy
English ducal families.
There is, however, a great deal of dis
satisfaction with this irregular Ntato of
tilings. Mr. Ward Z'.IcAllister, tho ar
biter of fashion, said it should not be tol
erated. Coats of arms, ho says., should
be registered at a herald's oflice, as they
are in England and other well regulated
European countries. Then wo should
know who were entitled to them, how
they got them and so forth.
"I proiKise' said Mr. McAllister, '-that
the American herald's oCiee should be
established as one of tho departments of
the federal government at Washington.
This is a very practical suggestion. The
government would be aide to put a tax
on armorial bearings and in that way
raise a large revenue, as the English
government does. It is one of tho hap
piest ways of r.'.ising a tax I can think
of. Members of fashionable society and
nil the other persons taxed would be
pleased by it, and no one, I think, can
show any good reason against it.
'I know it is easy for you to assort
that Americans have no business with
coats of arms f nil such things boeanse
they are relics oi! feudalism, but that is
lions- -use. They are not any ia iro harm
ful relics of feudalism than many of our
Social customs. Fashion reriuires lis to
use them, and fashion must be obeyed.
It is merely a matter of fashion. A man
with a coat of arms is not likely to be a
more dangerous plutocrat than a rich
man without one. Uesides. armorial
bearings aro ornamental and look well
on silver and china. That is one of the
best reasous for having them.
'I must say a few words as to who has
the right to use them. It is not neces
sary that a family should obtain them
by grant from the English or somo
other European king. It is enough
if they have been Jscd since the begin
ning of tho country's history, or for
three generations. In England any re
spectable person not in retail trade can
get a coat of arms by paying for it.
Unquestionably many younger sons
came over to this country who had a
right to bear the arms of their family.
Their descendants settled in different
parts i f the Union and aro now in tho
fullest manner entitled to use arms. On
the other hand, many men of wealth and
high soelal standing, but not of aristo
cratic origin, have adoptd them since
tlie practice became fashionable, as they
have a perfect right to do. Tin se fami
lies will transmit their arms to their de
scendants until they become as interest
ing as those of aristocratic Eurojiean
There are sonic interesting anecdotes
to lie told of the introduction of coats of
arms into the general society of this city.
Of course there are a few New Yi rk fam
ilies who have used them continuously
since tho creation of the colony, but
when tho practice first became general
it was received with a good deal of op
position. Oordon Hamersley used to
say that his crest was useful to tell him
which was his carriage. Colonel Thome,
who married Miss Jauneey, went to Eu
rojM: 50 years ago ami established him
self in Paris, bring sis no other Amer
ican had ever done. Ho took the British
minister through liis hotel, who, after
viewing its interior and its stables,
turned to Colonel Thorne, exclaiming,
"And you say you do all this on 12. WO
a year! It is marvelous." On return
ing to America to live the colonel turned
out in this city postilions with his coat
of arms embroidered on the left sleeve
of each postilion. This created such a
rumpus, the population hissing lnm as
he drove by, that he was compiled to
.Some of our best people were pil
grims and Huguenots, who on reaching
this country and establisliing themselves
here abjured such vanities as coats of
arms, as a monarchical institution. This
was all very well in the beginning, but
the bluo laws have faded. Wo no longer
cultivate primitive simplicity, but with
wealth and age we turn to luxury- and
find among its necessities the use of coats
of arms. The necessity and love of the
American for title or some designation
of distinction, plain Mr. 'not filling tho
bill,' is illustrated in the west and
south. For 50 years or more it has
been a universal custom to liestow a
military title on all men who have risen
above mediocrity, such as governor, gen
eral, captain, colonel, it being purely
honorary. Such titles men carry- through
life with this love of ours for individual
distinction, which is one of our marked
characteristics. When a man wants to
seal his letters, mark his plate or decor
ate his harness, he wants a crest, and as
Americans with money own the universe
this crest must forthcoming. Of
course it is only an accessory to the arms,
and now the question is. How shall Amer
icans get them? And how shall they
be able to ktp them?
Let me repeat that society would wel
come the cstablislnuent of a herald's
office for tho better regulation of these
matters." New York World.
'When you walk," says a Russian
proverb, "pray once; when you go to sea,
pray twice;.when going to be married,
pray three times."
Abraham Martin, an old colored man
living in Atchison, Kan., believes that
there, is going to be another flood. Ho
claims to have had a revelation in a
dream, in which he was instructed to
prepare an ark like Noah's of old. The
size of tho ark was designated in the
dream, and although the quarters aro
too small for the elephants and giraffes
the old man has confidence that the Lord
will squeeze them inside in some way.
Martin has figured it otft by the Bible
that tho flood will come next August.
He expects the menagerie, however, to
begin arriving in June, when animals,
fowls, etc., will present themselves at the
ark in pairs. The old colored man be
lieves implicitly in tho "revelations'' he
has had and has moved his family into
"Tho Lord wants tho earth peopled en
tirely with black men,"' he said recently,
"and no whi'.o jieople will 1h taken on
the l-at. Only a few very black negroes
will bo admitted."
Tho ark is built of old pieces of boards
picked up about town. Martin has bee-n
aver a year building the craft. Cor. fit.
