1HAVE frequently warned those
Americans who believe they have
claims to British peerages to '
hesitate before taking the m-:essar> i
proceedings before the Committee of]
Privileges of tho House of Lords, un-'

they will not bo inconvenienced by the
payment of (100,000 or so li .fees:
Proving the right to a BritUI t'll-\
In abeyance. Is the most expensive
! and unamimng form of litigation that
I I know of. A recent example is that
! of Robert Barclay Allardyce, ot Truro.
I In Cornwall, who went bankrupt in'.
his efforts to make th.- Committee of!
Privileges understand, through his
lahvyer, that he Is the real Earl of;
Mentcith. There are other claimants!
to the title, and although the com- |
mittee has not decided In favor off
any one of them as yet, the hint has
been dropped that |R, B. AlUrdyce !
comes the nearest of the three to prov-1
inc his eise. One of the reasons of
the committee for withholding any ,
decision is that were the earldom to i
be called out of abeyance, it would
of course constitute a virtual acknow?
ledgment that the bearer of the honor,'
was the rightful heir to the, throne,
of Great Britain. Naturally, the point ?
is merely an academic one, for the so- '
called Act of Settlement (or sueces-j
?ion) of 1701. gave ti.e i rown to the I
Hanoverian nous.- of Guelph in pref?
erence to le.-s remote kinsfolk of the
Stuart Kings. The first of these Stuart
monarchs was Robert II. of Scotland,!
who married a girl <-i the name ol !
Elizabeth Mure, of Rowallan. lie had
no children by hor after his marriage,
but there were no less than eight born .
previously to the ceremony.
At no time previous to the Ucform
atlon would such a marriage, even
with a papa! dispensation, have been!
neld by the laiw of Scotland to legitl-|
.nlze the birth of offering previously'
born. Vet it is from these Illegiti?
mate children of King Robert 11 of
Scotland and of Elizabeth Mure of
Rowallan that all the Stuarts and j
Gut-Ipbs who have since reigned in I
Scotland and Great Britain arc ue-|
scended. King Robert'.- second mar- I
riage, with the widowed Countess of]
I Moycey. was free from any kind of,
I reproach, and David, Bar] of Strath
earn and Menlelth, was the lawful
I issue thereof.
Before dying. King Robert executed
n. settlement, entailing the crown of
Scotland on the sons of both his wives,
according to priority, and their heirs
male. Just as though they had all been
horn of one mother, and that mothnr
' his lawful queen reinsert. According
to this settlement the fourth Earl of
' Mentcith should have succeeded to the
thron; of Scotland on the death of
.lames V. Instead of that Mary, Queen
? of Scots wbp was beheaded at Eother
i ltlgay Castre. But this fourth Earl I
Of Menteith was a prisoner in England'
1 at the- time of Queen Mary's acxes
, sion,? wjilch may account for his mak?
ing no claim to the Scotch crown,
forward his pretentions to the throne,
i Tho first Lord of Menteith to put
j forward his pretensions to the throne.
' not Only of Scotland, but also of Eng
1 land, occupied at the time by King
James I., sen of Mary Queen of Scots,
was the seventh earl, who according
? to contemporary historians was "the
brightest and manliest Scotch peer ol ?
: his day."
The great Sir Francis Bacon. In his:
capacity of Lord High Chancellor, and j
Keeper of the Great Seal ot the United
Kingdom, reported In an official docu-j
', ment that the Earl of Menteltit's "claim
to the throne was so Just in point of
i law that all thai was needed to s?t
him on the throne was a sharp sword.";
Bacon's successor on the woolsack '
made a similar report to King Charles I
I., and it was in consequence of these
warnings that Ulis monarch p:rse- ;
cuted and ilnally reduced the seventh
Earl of Menteith to ruin after charg?
ing him with high treason for publicly
statins that he. tho Earl, had "the1
reddest blood In Scotland." and that
King Charljs was "be.'.oiden to him'
, for the crown." In addition to Robert'
Barclay Allardyce?who is now living
i on an old-age pension?two of the
other claimants are a George M. j
Graham, of Toronto. Canada, and a.
George M. Graham of Leitchtown. But:
there Is another, who recently was
considered by the abie-st genealogists
in England, and the Royal Colleges
of Heralds of both England and Scot?
land, to have the best claim of all. be?
cause he is able to trace In a direct
and unbroken line his descent from
the seventh Karl of Menteith. I refir
to Robert Cunninghams Graham, who
Is. despite his political eccentricities.i
very popular, was on several occas- i
ions a guest of King Eelwerd at Bj1-[
moral, and is reeogniz.-d. both at home'
and abroad, as forming part of thoi
most blue-blooded aristocracy of Scot-!
If his pen ha., been frequently
directed against "the United States,
particularly In the columns of the
Saturday Review. It must he attrib-1
uted in a measure to th?. influence of I
his wife, Gabriela, daughter of Don]
Francisco Jose do la Balmonillere,;
tvh-ose relatives, belonging to one of t
the oldest patrician families of Span-!
tsh South America, suffered severely
from the Cuban insurrection, and the
separation of that :siand from Spain.
The name of Mentcith has not a plea-j
sant sound in the. ears of patriotic!
Scotchmen. It reminds them of Sir|
John Menteith, whose memory they:
execrate. j
On the 5th of August. 130;,, William j
Wallace, the national hero of Soot-i
land, was taken?it Is. alleged through .
treachery?by Sir John Menteith, at'
Robroston, near Glasgow, und carried
to the castle of Dumbarton, thence1
conveyed in fitters, strongly guarded,'
to London, where he was tried, f iund
guilty of "high treason" though ne t
denied that he was ever a liege of
1 the Englleh crown, but merely at war
! with It?and was executed.
I The history of the Menteith peerage,
I beginning with the seventh earl, is a:
j sad one. After being stripped of his
; offices, ruined in estate, and confined
] in a castle In the North, a ridiculous
i title was forced upon him. In cruel
! mockery of his birthright., Mis son
I w-as murdered in Monarose's camp by
j Stewart of Ardvoirlich. as related In
Scott's "Legend of Montrose."
Tho eighth carl was at tho court Ot
Charles II., In 1661. asking for $250.
000 due from the Stuarts to his grand
I father, the seventh :trl. He died In
! 1061, without getting the money, and
the earldom went into abeyance be?
tween his two sisters.
In 1711, when the Scnttlsh p'-ers met
to elect representatives In .he Tfouse
of Lords, a thin, cadaverous-looking
youth answered to the name of Men?
teith. He was the great-grandson ofj
I>ady Elizabeth Graham, one of the
olsiers of tlio eight Earl.
During tlu next seventeen y.ears
he voted as ninth Earl of Menteith.
uut the House of I>ords ordernd htm
to desist from doing so until he had
proved his right. He had no means,
and sank lower and lower, until h; b"
came literally a mendicant, begging
from door to door. He was known us
tne "Beggar Earl." an 1 continued to
be a tramp and a vagrant until 17^"..
when ho was found lying dead by the
roadsldo, at Bonhlll. In Dumbarton-1
It is pretty will proven that all the
descendants i.t Lady Elizabeth Graham.
Kreat-grajidmother of the "Beggar
Earl." are extinct. Mr. Barclay Al
lardyce claimed the earldom tnrotigh
descent from her sister. Lady Mary
Graham, who married Sir William Gra?
ham, of Gart more, in 1663. Hi- grand-!
father failed to satl3fv the House of
Lords in 1S3C, and now Mr. Allurdyee j
himself has met with equally bad
