SF.ETCH OF THE LEADER OF THE ANTI-TAMMANY MOVEMENT. Inters. ting Career of (Jue of Nw Tori's Foremost Citizen William K. Gra.ce Iu Bosifies and at Home His Life and Pub lic Services. L5-peeial Cor respondence. Xew York, Dec. 2s. It was not nr.til alter he was 4o years of age that William ti. ( J,' ? . the head and front of th?pies er.t anti-Tammany anti-Hill movement among Xew York Democrats, entered ac tive X'eliticat life. He had already made his fortune and felt that he could there after afford to devote time, money f.ivl evergy to the service of the public. Yv'hen therefore it was proposed to Hm that he should remove from Brooklyn, then his place of residence, to Xew York ai d run for mayor, he accepted the prop osition. The light was one of the most bitter in the annals of this town. Mr. Li race was and is a Catholic and a Demo crat. The Republicans nominated William D wd, president of the Bank of North America find a Protestant, and the re ligion of the two candidates became at 01 ce the live and leading issue in the campaign. Protestants and Catholics were arrived against each other in most hostile fashion, and party- lines, while not ol diterated or forgotten, were for the time largely ignored. IMr. Crace triumphed at the polls seen ring a majority of 3,000 o er his opponent. Xo subsequent mu nicipal election has been won in Xew Y vk by so narrow a margin, nor has this city had a Republican mayor since that time. I.ove. Ovt-re;me All. Mr. Grace is a pronounced Roman Catholic, but he married a Protestant girl. Mrs. Oram was born Gilchrist. II ?r father was a Maine sea captain, and he brought up his daughter in the strict ess Baptist faith. Air. Grace w?s not married until past bo lie was born in 1-32 and married in 1857 or IShs Hw ttcaJii-3 acquainted with Captain Gil- WILLI P.. GfiACE. Christ in Luna. South America, and it wis not until be saw this Yankee ship master's Yankee daughter that he turned his t Ik-nghts toward marriage. Of course 1 he question of religion earno up, but as the young lady was as much in love as the young man it was decided that faith should not .separate timn. Tiieir married life has been ideal. Each hi.s retained the original church con nection, but the children are Cut hoi ic. It was agreed that the question of faith si ot:ld be itev i led by the children tin m eelves, and they have all followed their father. Of the 11 born to Mr. and Mrs. Grace but six are now living. (one daughter is widowed; Joseph, the oldest living son, is in his senior year at Colum bia, college and will probably one day be t';:e head of the commercial business now Conducted by his father; Richard is pre paring for college, i-.iid the others are still st lall. A Chum Wifa His CUitiiren. In his home and among his children Mr. Grace is a boy grown gray. To his beys hi- is like an elder brother. AVith his girls he is ; chum to whom they can go with all tle-ir troubles and i-rplexi-t'-es, no iiMlt-r how seemingly trivial, sere of us careful consideration as if the matter were an important question in politics or bu-he ss. With them all he hi s his fio.ics, Kiid when a home enter tainment is to be got up he enters into th e airaapfan'ii's with all the ardor of the m. -t yutitiitnl. taking quit e a act ive a part; in home masquerades or the atricals or coma rts as any of the fumiy. Yet for this boyish, fun loving, sympa thetic f i'h'-rthe junior Graces have a LlGSt Ueoided respect. Though his home ruler - is conducted v.nth a velvet hand, it is none the --..s thorough. Among the lessons that have been ehVctivi Iy impressed, upon tiie c.dl dren of t his family is the va-kie of money. Toeir father is so well to do in this world's goods hu is said to be five times a millio'iaire) that tht-3 are denied noth ing that will conduce to their comfort ci thtir happ-iu'-ss, but they have been well taught tl.e folly of extravagance and that p.irsimiuiionsiic-'s is as much to be avoided as uu luo lavishue-ss in ex penditure. Mr. Grace has two homes one at Great Xetk, 17. Y,, and the other at the corner of Seventy-ninth street and Lex ir gtoa avenue, near Central park, in Xew York city. He is especially fond cf his country place. The residence was built- fully a certury ago, but has been added to ami remodeled so many times since then that it would scarcely be rec c gnized now by its original owner. It is surrounded by large grounds on which & vast amount of time and money and though; have been laid out. the result tieing a complete triumph of the laud 6( ape gardener's art. Attached is a large and well cultivated farm, and to the tine herd of Jerteys which he has got togeth er he is so devoted that their care may properly be said to be his fad, if he has cue outside of his business and politics. rUr. Grace's Winter Home. Mr. Grace's winter home in Xew York is a handsome mansion for which he p tid lou.(.ou. His stable cost $:;0.('-00. 6-1.1. there ue Iteeps the choicest of hi.s 0 blooded horses during the cold season. Llr. Grace 1 hi in self an accomplished J ' A A' . . - horseman. Although Mr. and Mrs. Grace do 1 ot belong to that ultra fash ionable set of New Yorkers wiio are called by the grace of McAllister toe Four Hundred, they are prominent mem bers of society, and their homo is every winter the scene of many "functions'' of note. Yet they are not at all escltisive in the offe isive sense of the term. One need not be rich nor noted to secure the friendship of Mrs. Grace. Much time and attention are devoted by Mrs. Grace to practical charity. Iu business Mr. Grace i3 systematic and, as he expresses it, "without senti ment." The conduct of a commercial enterprise, he holds, must be absolutely old blooded in order to insure success. The house of William R. Grace & Co. invariably declines to subscribe to any charitable object, no matter how deserv ing, for its head maintains "this house is in business, not charity." But with William R. Grace the man it is quite another matter. The subscription that may be turned away by the concern may receive the signature of W. R. Grace set opposite figures representing a very sub stantial sum. A great proportion of the money he gives jjasses through the chari table organizations of the Roman Catho lic church, notably the St. Vincent da Paul society, of which he is an officer. Ilis Public Services. Mr. Grace's services as a public oflicial have been confined to his incumbency of the majnralty for two terms. His second term began in ISS'd. when he ran as the anti-Tammany Democratic candi date against 11 ugh Grant. Tammany, and Fred Gibbs, Republican, bis majority being 12,000. But he has been active in politics ever since his entry into the field in ISt'O, and readers of the newspapers have not T rgotren the fact that be headed the "antismipper" movement in the spring of 1 e'J2. which resulted in the de feat, for the time at least, of David B. Hill's aspirations for the presidency, and no doubt contributed materially to Mr. Cleveland's success. For some reason, which Mr. Grace professes rot to understand, he is not at j resent persona grata to the administra tion. Ilis qualities ai an organizer in politics, as in business, are of the highest order, and his friends predict that his movement ngainst Tammany will be a potent fact or next fall, Mr. ti race, bi.ing by birth an Irishman, is naturally great ly interest -d in the home rule movtment nral has in times past contributed liber ally to its cause. In person Mr. Grace is slightly below the medium height. He has the round and sturdy build of a man in excellent health. lie wears a mustache und .goatee, which are furniiig gray. In bis carriage he is erect. Ilis eyes have all the tla-di and fire of youth, and when he talks his words are well chostn and direct. He is a good lighter and possesses tlios. e quali ties whieh make determined enemies as well as devoied friends. lie wears a Xo. 7j hat. I. D. Ms R.si-iALiu. A CHAMPION HUNTER. It Was lettcr for Ducks Thau the 15( st lie trie ver. S pre: it: 1 'crrteioiidencol Xoyac, N. Y,, Dee. 2s A week or two fince I hat pened to be at Xoyac, which is on the Little Peconio bay, and dr j .ped in on some old friends, who kindly in vited me to remain for the kind of old fashioned hirst class dinner peculiar to this dear old out of the way place. "I notice, Sam, that the wild ducks are pretty plentiful already," I said after I had seattd myself. "Do you call them thick?" replied Sam wit h a smile. "Why. there a re not enough yf t to make it worth while going out. There are j ust enough for sportsmen who like to knock around for their health all day. But down here we don't notice them until we can gather them iu las kets." "How in the world do you manage thr.tr" "Well," replied Sam, who is the cham pion duck hunter of Xoyac. "that can only be done when the ducks are very thick. I have seen them so thick that they were standing on the shore thrt e deep in layers. When they are as thick as this, we go out at night and fire a gun off, and then the bucks get panic stricken and tly in every zigzag way you can think of. Of course t hey bunk into each ot ii-'-r r.e.d 1 ots of them fill to th.. ground dead.. Then we send ih--boy out early in the morning wii.li a basket, and he gathers them like mushrooms." I sa w the champion hunter was on his favorite su bject, so sail nothing to turn his thoughts into a did.eret;t chaum -1. "But ili-j hunting is not win.,: it used to bo who.? I was a boy," ivso me 1 ti.e runner as he stroked his mustache and smiled in childish lee. "for I go Lack before breechloaders. Why. at one time the rabbits were so thick around here that they would come into the kitcla n and fail asleep in the rocking chair. You mvi-r saw such tame rabbits. They would go into the hennery, and the little chickens would crawl under thou to get warm. Why, they w. re so tame that I have often sttpp-U on th mi in the dark when going out for a pail of water. But I'll never forget poor old J. Henry Cae sar." "Who was he?" I asked. "My trained snapping turtle. I had him trained to catch wild ducks when I didn't feel well enough to go out." "How in the world did the turtle ever catch the ducks?"' I asked, sorely puz zled at so absurd a thing. "Why, very simply," replied Sam, with a smile of pleasure at my puzzled air. "I simply took old J. Henry Cavar down to the bay and. shouted 'Ducks'.' just as you shout 'Rats!' to a dog, and J. Henry would get under water and keep still. Pretty soon a wild duck would come alon g and sit peaceful and quiet like on the water, and while it was lock ing a rout d enjoying itself J. Henry Cit-sar would rise, without making any fuss or noise, and gra'o that duck by the leg and haul it under till it was drowned, and then fetch it up to the house just Like a retriever." Just then Sam ex cused himself to tell a book agent that he didn't want anything, and I finished my dinner in peace. R. K. Ilti-.iui'naoi - r ' d 1 Cf" j S.
