VANDERBILTS AT REST.
HOW THE MILLIONAIRE’S MAUSO
LEUM IS CARBD FOR.
The Interest on $500,000 Annually
Spent in Keeping One Gravo Green—
The Quiet Resting Place of the Old
Commodore, the Founder of the Co
lossal Vanderbilt' Fortune —An Un
FVtou the Xew York World.
Stone is not security; iron is not protec
tion, and monumental walls are not unas
sailable to the craft and spirit of the age.
At least 60 the Vanderbilts seem to think.
After spending a fortune for a tomb, detec
tives are still kept constantly on duty to
guard the bones of the “dead king.”
William H. Vanderbilt died a year and a
half ago, yet there is no rest for the living
kindred or safety for his ashes. It seems to
have been his ambition in life to erect a
mausoleum for himself and family which
should be the wonder of the age and perfect
ly secure from pillage. Man’s ingenuity has
been exhausted in that behalf, yet the gran
ite and iron that have been piled up by the
cunning hand of the architect to make a
shapely and sightly building, and one that
would be proof against assault, are night
and day under the surveillance of hired po
licemen. The tomb and its surroundings
make a sight so suggestive that it is worthy
of careful study.
To see this perplexing evidence of the
Silver of great wealth one takes ship at the
attery and sails over that wonderful
threshold of New York’s crown and glory
—the bay—to the quiet shades of Staton
Island. There ho can study a lesson that
will do more to recommend his poverty to
the poor man and liis cares and toils to the
struggler than all the sermons of the pulpits
or all the precepts of Henry George.
The fruitful text can bo found at New
Dorp and about the rolling acres where the
Vanderbilt race began in this country and is
to be perpetuated in “storied urn and ani
mated bust.” The consecrated pile dedi
cated to the arbiter of millions is perhaps a
mile or more from the quaint Dutch settle
meutof the States Island railroad where you
leave the train. Nature herself has done
much to make the place all that the immor
tal yearnings of even kings could have de
sired, but the hand of man has fashioned
and is fashioning there something that puz
zles even the philosopher, earnest student or
thoughtful men of every kind.
Nowhere else in the land is there a sepul
chre so grandiose and significant. Half a
million dollars for a tomb! That is the sum
that the heirs of the modern Croesus have
set aside to carry out the will of the man
who once commanded hundreds of millions.
Yet all night and all day men well drilled
and well armed watch over this huge granite
pile and its mouldering contents. A sentry
box stands near this grand receptacle for the
dead—an amazing comment on the peace
and sanctity of the place. The men are
kept on guard and worked like soldiers. In
addition to these human vigils, a system of
signals or burglar alarms is added which
penetrate many parts of tho grounds. At
stated intervals these are set off by tho sin
gle man on his six hours’ turn of duty, and
the reserve rapidly assembles at a given
point. It is not dress parade, but a sort of
arill, that the chief detective exacts of the
men whom he hires to guard this mausoleum
from pillage. At night the watch is even
more vigilant. When darkness brings
greater danger from those who would steal
the body for a ransom a powerful flame is
lighted in the cupola, which shines out over
the humble graveyard below unu off upon
the waters. Into "this dome one of tho de
tectives must go every half hour and touch
another alarm, which records tho fidelity of
those on watch. Every twelve hours the
chief enters the building to seo from this
new electric register whether each man on
duty during the night lias gone his rounds
at the prescribed moment. This caution
against theft provokes many interesting re
The cost off guarding the remains of Mr.
Vanderbilt amounts to a small fortune each
year. The interest on the $600,000 said to
have been expended on the twenty-one acres
of ground and the mortuary edifice which
adorns it is a big item. Add to this at least
S3O a day for the detective guard which is
kopt constantly on duty and it foots up a
total of #50,000 a year of outlay to keep at
rest the ashes of one man.
The place, its surroundings, the guard and
the other curiOus evidences of anew fash
ion about graveyards since great wealth has
made men avaricious to the criminal point,
all suggest thought of our new tendencies.
This ostentatious mernoraial to money-get
ting staiids on the brow of a hill which rolls
away on evory-side into acres of lovely per
spective and miles of ocean view. As you
stand at the base of Croesus’ tomb tho
waters of the bay stretch away on every
hand. Nothing could be lovelier than the
horizon of pale pink und blue, tho purpling
waters and the glittering foliage that cur
tains the gentle slopo of tho hillside where
Flutus is enshrined. From tho very point
where the grounds begin which belong to tho
Vanderbilt family the country graveyard
trends downward to the roadway. Within
its inclosure is a modest, old-fashionea
church, gray with age. It was built before
the present century, and the Vanderbilts
were, in their poorest as well as richest
days, its chief patrons. It is as nearly
Gothic in build us the pursos of the Mora
vian deacons would permit. Picturesque
and pleasant to the eye, its rusts among the
soft outlines of nature's fanciful fashioning.
It recalls old St. David's at Radnor, so
pleasantly pictured in Longfellow’s charm
What an image of peace and rest
Is this little church among its graves 1
But now this is not a temple amid hum
ble surroundings, for the great tomb frowns
upon it from the top of the hill, nil arrogant
reflex of the new conditions that have in
vaded the homely wayside. After all, there
are many compensations for tho poor. It is
not the grandeur of this mausoleum that im
presses you. A study of its lair proportions
lioes not long remain in tho memory.
It is the thing commemorated that
lingers in the mind, and not tho
manner of commemoration. It is
what this remarkable display of wealth in
a tomb means to mankind that makes a visit
to it fruitful. There is much in the fact
that after exhausting all that human en
deavor could do in the way of security to
the ashes of the dead that watchers hnve to
be set to keep guard over the strongest
sepulchre that the ingenuity of man could
devise. The ingenuity of man also has to
be invoked to certify to the devotion of the
men whom money liiros to do this singular
As I looked upon the scene at, and about
the tomb the apparition of several men,
curiously out of keeping with tho swelter
ing toilers, arrested attention. They emerge
all at once from various points about tho
“ Them’s the detectives,” said the work
man busied near by, between tho strokes of
his ux. “They have been here ever since
t lie body was fetched up from below, where
it was put temporary-like. They were
down there from tho time ho was buried.
They keep mighty strict watch. In the
vault in the graveyard below there was
some need of it, hut up here I don’t see any.
It would take two (lays ior any one to break
into this one.”
“How long have the remains been in this
"Ever since last winter,’’ he replied.
“And have the detectives been hero ever
“Yes sir, they live here nil the time and
are drilled like a corn puny of soldiers. They
all come out so many times a day. whether
there is any one about or not. This is done
to keep them in discipline und to see if the
signals work all right. They have a little
house over yonder, where they live."
“Do any of the Vanderbilt family come
out here I”
The workman rested on his ux, scratched
ws ear reflectively and said; >
“None of them come regular. I have
worked here a long time and have seen cone
of them hut once.”
Anew thought arose. Possibly all this
reflection may he wrong. There must, after
all, be some secret unction, some mysterious
virtue, in these ashes that make them of
greater worth than the half-million on
mausoleum. That can't be carried off. It
must really be a sentiment.
Sleeping in tho “Gods acre” below the
Vanderbilt tomb are the graves of many an
nonost burgher, chief among them the
ashes of the mighty Commodore. Many a
man wdio, no doubt, made others happy in a
simple way; many a man who lived a kind
ly life anti diet! an exemplary death lies
there; but there is not even one man to
guard all the other graves on Staten Island,
or for that matter six men to guard all the
graves in all tho graveyards that lie from
ocean to ocean on the o<mtinent. Can it be
that the ashes of this Vanderbilt contain
some hidden power, the secret alchemy that
turns common metal.into gold? In an Ara
bian tale there is told of a handful of ashes
scattered to the winds that would raise a
crop of gold-bearing, jewel-producing, life
gtving growth. Perhaps there is another here,
and that to keep tiiis secret the heirs of tho
necromancer are gun rding his clay in this
prodigious pyramid of stone.
But this towering monument to wealth is
not the most suggestive incident of this
scene. Wander down the hill into the hum
blo churchyard. There is a secluded dell in
modest obscurity, but quite a distance below
the shadow of the obtrusive dome, an un
cared-for tomb can be found. Noar it I saw
a gravedigger, serene and even jocular,
like Hamlet’s friend, quite ready to com
ment on the quiet contentment of this placid
“Whose tomb is thin?” said I, more to
give him a breathing spell from his work
than anything else.
He looked up and seemed rather delighted
to be able to give words to tho thoughts that
had been crowding his mind and said:
“That’s the Commodore's tomb.”
He spoke as if somewhat astonished that
I should have asked, and I think he rather
enjoyed the-surprised tone in which I in
“Is there no guard kept over Commodore
Vanderbilt’s ashes ?”
“Oh, no. He never needed any, and I
don’t think his son needs any, either.”
“But why is not the Commodore buried
up in the big mausoleum with his son?”
“That, you know, is just outside tho
graveyard." said the attendant on the city of
the dead, “and tho old Commodore always
wanted to be buried down here. He gave
these grounds to the Moravian Church,
where all his kinfolks, as well as himself,
went to meeting for many a year, and he
had a mighty warm side for this whole set
tlement. The Commodore wasn’t such a
hard man when you got right into him,”
and there was a shrewd twinkle in the
gravedigger's eye as ho added, “But
mighty few men could get into him. Many
of the people round hero thought a good
deal of the old man. He gave his son Wil
liam that farm just across the road yonder,
and in a good many ways showed his liking
for this place.”
“If the Commodore was so fond of Staten
Island, and especially of this littlo church
and this quiet graveyard, why is it that his
tomb is so neglected? Why no fresh flow
ers and shrubbery ? —and even the whitewash
is scaling from the stone, ” I added.
“Yes, that’s so.” mused the workman,
“but you see we hain’t got no orders about
doing anything. The old vault stays just
as it is, year in and year out. Mighty few
poople ever come near it, except out of cu
riosity.” Then he added, musingly: “But
I reckon the old Commodore wouldn’t care
much. He dind't go much on show nohow.
I reckon he would be contented to know
that his bones rest in this graveyard, no
I glanced at the huge stone edifice above
on the hill and reflected that tho world had
already recorded its estimate of tho two
men, greatly in favor of the old Commo
dore. After all, what could be better than
that? The humble and secluded sepulchre,
the green sod, the singing birds, and the
whispering breeze were far more impres
sive, taken together with the greater monu
ment he left m tho mighty city within can
non shot und gave to his son, than the grand
pile kept intact by a sum that would feed
and clothe a hundred—yes, 500 —families.
A HUMAN RATTLESNAKE.
The Dangerous Bite of a Blue-Gummed
Mobile (Ala.) Correspondent Globe-Democrat.
A species of what may be termed a human
rattlesnake is creating considerable interest
here, and an incident of ( two days ago tends
to awaken an investigation of scientific im
portance. Officer W. J. York, while ar
resting a negro Tuesday, was bitten in the
hand by the negro, and since that time tho
hand has become greatly inflamed and
swollen. In February last Officer John
King, one of the bust men on the police
force, was bitten in a similar manner
by a negro whom he had under
arrest. In two days Kang’s hand
swelled, and then the inflammation at
tacked his arms and logs, and for two weeks
his life was in danger. Since then ho has
Ixien slowly recovering, but is not yet able
to put bis'right foot on the grouiid. The
negroes and some whites declared that the
nezroe had blue gums, and that only those
with blue gums hnve poisonous bites. This
lieliof is generullv held and the colored peo
plo have, it seems, an aphorism: “Don’t
fight with a blue-gummed coon.”
Much interest w-as taken in King’s case,
and as soon as York was bitten an exami
nation of the negro was made, and it w-as
discovered that his gums are of a bright
blue color. In both cases of biting the ne
groes were very deeply enraged.
A Negro Story.
From Harper's Magazine for July.
An old negro woman was employed as
cook in tho family of a Mr. S—Though
a good servant in most respects, she had a
propensity for petty thieving that was very
annoying to lieu - mistress. Mrs. 8 often
missed small quantities of tea, coffee, sugar,
ote., but the cook always stoutly main
tained her innocence when questioned, und
In this she was usually supported by Miss
Florence S , a kind-hearted (laughter of
the family. One day Aunt Tildy (the cook)
was charged with a more serious theft than
usual. At first she seemed at a loss for a
reply, but she suddenly burst out with: "I
doan’ bilevel tuk dat ting— no I doan’.
But if Miss Flaw’nce done suy I tuk it, den
I b’lieve it. Miss Flaw’noe tell dotruf; I
b’lieve all what she say. Jus’ you ax Miss
Flaw’nce, an if she say so, den I b'liovo it—
no oder way, nohow.”
IS that misery experienced when we suddenly
become aware that we possess a diabolical
arrangement called a stomach.
