Mayer and the Great House He
Founded Nathan and the Other Five
From til*' London H'imtx.
Mayer Amschel, born in the famous old
house in the Frankfort JuJcnga-se in lTl'i,
was the real founder of the firm, though his
father had been a trader before him, deal
ing in curiosities in a small way and travel
ing the country with a pack and a donkey.
Young Mayer, with the trading instinct
which seems the birthright of the Jews,
•showed more than their ordinary commer
cial precocity. A school-boy of 12, he was
already dealing in coins and laying the
foundation of a future business connection.
His father had meant him for the church,
or rather for the synagogue, but the trading
spirit was too strong, and he came home to
sett le in the Judengasse. He did not stay
there long, for his reputation as a man of
business recommended him to the wealthy
hanking firm of the Oppenheims. They
appreciated him, and he had fair prospects
of advancement, but with all his caution
and prudence he had a dash of the advent
urer, and determined to set up upon his
own account. Very soon he had a variety
of irons in the fire. From buying and
selling curiosities and objects of art he
quickly devolopea into n banker and finan
cier. He impressed all with whom he came
in contact with the sense of his capacity. A
fortunate aecquaintanee he had formed in
troduced him to the Landgrave of Hesse,
who intrusted him with the administration
of his vast private means, and that proved
the turning point of the Rothschild’s own
fortunes. The Landgrave, who had made
himself specially obnoxious to Napoleon by
selling his subjects into the English and
Prussian services, fled before the advance
of the French. The story of how he gave
his treasures into Rothschild’s charge has
been told in many ways and with much
fanciful embroidery. The facts are simply
iliat Rothschild managed to remit the
money to his son Nathan, who was already
in business in London. After the peace it
was all honorably accounted for and duly
repaid—principal and interest. The pribity
and ability of the Rothschilds were at once
extensively advertised. But in the mean
time a singularly bold and lucrative specula
tion had redounded still more to their
credit. The Duke of Wellington, duriug
the peninsular campaign, had been suffering
from the precariousness of specie supplies.
The English government was greatly em
barrassed, for no bankers would undertake
the responsibility of transmitting them.
Then Rothschild came forward and formally
undertook the contract on a heavy commis
sion. For eight years he is said to have
oleard £150,000 annually, and his success
may have been due to the international re
lations he had already established, for Mr.
Reeves hints elsewhere that he had been
bribing the French officials. Be that as it
may, be gained the confidence of our gov
ernment, and the consequence was that he
had the profitable charge of remitting the
enormous subsidies to the Continental
princes in our pay. When Mayer Amschel
died, like one of the old monarchs, he sum
moned his five sons to his death bed to give
them his best advice. The advice was to
remain faithful to the Jewish law, to remain
united to the end, and to do nothing without
consulting their mother. “Observe these
three points,” said the dying capitalist,
“and you will be rich among the richest,
and the world will belong to you.”
The sons fulfilled to the letter the precept
that enjoined harmonious combination; till
lately they kept all the money in the family
by intermarrying, but they achieved their
financial supremacy by separating and start
ing new centers of activity in some of the
chief capitals of Europe. While the eldest
son remained in Frankfort his four younger
brothers were directing houses in London,
Paris, Naples and Vienna. They controlled
the bourses, as they had the ear of the
cabinet; they were called into consultation
when loans had to be raised in contemplation
of breaches of European peace: they are
supposed to have sometimes averted wars
by simply refusing to draw their purse
strings; and once, as a condition of furnish
ing indispensable supplies, they forced an
unwelcome finance minister on the tyrant
at Naples. Asa rule, however, they seem
to have conducted their financial arrange
ments from the purely business point of
view; and they insured tho success of their
speculations and the accuracy of their
cosmopolitan information by establishing
agencies with leading mercantile houses all
over the world. Naturally they provoked
envy and jealousies. But in their united
strength and with their admirable organi
zation it became difficult to compete with
them and impossible to crush tneni. The
few speculators who had the courage to
make the attempt invariably had reason to
repent it, It was only comparatively
recently, when the conditions of State finan
ciering had changed and the States were
appealing directly to their subjects, that an
international coalition could be formed
sufficiently formidable to hold the great
monopolists in check. The remarkable
feature in the rise of the Rothschilds was
the thoroughly cosmopolitan manner of
managing their business. They had no
prejudices, no principles and no patriotism.
For example, “while on the one hand they
provided supplies for the armies of Napoleon,
on the other they raised loans for his foes.”
Nathan Mayer, the first head of the Eng
lish firm, was the ablest of the five sons.
Millionaire as he was, his lot was far from
an enviable one; his hot pursuit of money
gave him neither leisure nor rest; he direct
ed everything. His couriers were coming
and going at all hours, and even w-hen he
retired for the night he was never sure that
he might not be roused up to read and
answer important dispatches. He had
staked everything on the permaneneeof the
peace of 1814, and during “the hundred
days” his anxiety was intense. Eager to
know the best or the worst as soon as possi
ble, he had driven out to an eminence
commanding the battlefield. In the joyful
reaction after the decisive repulse of the
French, his overstrained strength was ready
to succumb. But he hurried back to Brus
sels, and thence to England, bribing the
Boulogne fishermen to put to sea in danger
ously tempestuous weather. He had his
t ime of anxiety, but, worn out as he was,
he resolved to recoup himself for it. Next
morning he was standing in the Stock Ex
change under the familiar pillar.
His face was sad to a degree,
and to those who —ventured to
to question him he did not hesitate to con
fide the defeat of the Prussian forces at
Ligny. ’ His known brokers were selling
freely, and alarm soon passed into panic.
Meantime secret agents were busily buying,
and the sums he cleared must have been
almost in proportion to the number of
victims his strategy ruined. Nathan Mayer
was anything but an attractive character,
as lie must have been a miserable man. His
disposition was not only money getting, but
grasping; on the strength of his enormous
riches he permitted himself almost brutal
license of speech; by his will he did not be
queath a shilling, even to those who had
labored indefat igahly in his service, and as
he had allowed himself no leisure for recrea
tion he lived in perpetual terror of assassin
ation. His son. Baron Lionel, who inher
ited much of his fat her’s business talent, im
presses us more favorably. He, too, bad
rough and rattier repulsive manners, and
latterly he was racked with pstn and irrita
t ion by rheumatic gout. But he was benevo
lent in the best sense of the word, and
always ready to reach a liberal hand to the
deserving. LiKo his father, he was entirely
given over to business, although uufortun-*
ntoly he did find time to catch rheumatism
in the hunting-field. Like his father, he had
such faith in nts own towers of administra
tion that he insisted on superintending
everything personally. But if he had the
passion and acquisitiveness which made the
fortunes of his family he had the charity,
which covers a multitude of sins. He gave
munificently with both hands, and it is be
lieved that much of his beneficence was
Baron James, who established the Paris
branch, was one of the shrewdest and most
eccentric members of the family. When
floating the Northern railway of France he
called very near the wind in point of
honesty. It was what may he charitably
described as his extreme astuteness which
provoked the most formidable combination
ever formed against the Rothschilds. The
Barings, the Hopes of Amsterdam and
other important European houses organized
a syndicate which successfully contested the
concession of the Russian railways. As an
admirer of the arts lie went to Horace
\ ernefc to have his portrait painted. Vernet
named 4,000 francs as the price. The baron
tried vainly to beat the painter down, till
at last Vernet threatened to treble his
charge if there was another word on the
subject. “Am Ito paint, it or am I not?”
The baron bolted from the studio, thinking
that the audacious artist must be mad.
“Wait a minute,” cried the artist after him.
‘‘l will do your portrait for nothing.”
And he painted him on the gigantic canvas
of “La Sinaia” as “a hideous looking Jew
running away with a casket of jewels and
money, his face expressive of the most sor
did avarice.” But it is only lair to given
companion art story which tells as much to
the art patron's advantage, although it may
he apocryphal. He had consented to jtose
to Eugene Delacroix for the head of a
beggar. One of Delac oix’s pupils, mistak
ing the ragged model for what he seemed
to be, slipped a trifle into his hand. Roths
child thanked him, kept the money, and
made inquiries. He learned that the young
man was a genius, but poor, and had to
labor hard for the means of educating him
self. Shortly afterward the young fellow
received a letter stating that charity hears
interest and that the accumulated interest
on the amount, he had so generously given
was represented by the sum of 10,000 francs,
which were lying at his disposal in the office
in the Rue Lalitte.
Tartars As Boycotters.
Odessa Dixpatch to the London Daily AVtcs.
I should not for a moment imagine that
the Grim Tartars have learned much of the
Irish agrarian science of boycotting through
the channels of the Russian press, as the
Russian vernacular is only orally and very
imperfectly understood among them. Yet
they have developed during recent years a
system of boycotting the German proprie
tors in the Crimea which appears to have
been highly successful. The lands formerly
apportioned by the Crown to some 30,000
Tartars in the Crimean Peninsula have
through the nomadic habits and ignorance
of these people been gradually and easily
acquired by the princely and other large
proprietors for what may, in these instances,
lie very appropriately termed old songs.
These lands have been sub leased in most
cases to the übiquitous and enterprising
Germans. All these estates are worked by
Tartar labor, and so long as the proprietor
was there or a descendant of one of the old
Tartar chieftain families, things went
smoothly. A German agriculturist with
capital, a few years ago, discovered in these
broad tracts and cheap bargains a promising
field for enterprise, with the prospect never
absent from the Russo-German’s vision of
gradually ousting and supplanting the
native. This, however, required time, but
the German reckoned on the long-suffering
patience of the industrious, sober, ignorant
and solid-looking Mongolian laborer. The
result has proved the German proprietor to
have been a long way out of his sanguine
reckoning. In many cases he acquired
estates covering areas of from 50,000 to
200,000 acres, but the entry of the German
into the possession of his' < state* was the
signal for a rapid migration of every Tartar
laborer and herdsman. The Tartar pro
prietors, who were his neighbors, refused
the services of horses, oxen and camels
at any price, no matter how tempting. The
storekeepers In the neighboring town and
fail’s would not supply the Germans' wants.
This Tartar boycotting has now succeeded in
driving the greater number of German pro
prietors to abandon their estates and hold
ings as ruinous loss, s. The Governor of the
district has now submitted a project to the
imperial government for the repurchase of
these lands, and their division among the
Tartars. It is further proposed that in ad
dition to these Crown grants of small hold
ings to some 25,000 Tar.ars the government
shall in all necessitous cases supply each
Tartar family with a few necessary agricul
tural implements and a yoke of oxen.
There is little doubt that this project will
not be accepted by the government. Here
we have the much-abused Russian auto
cratic government conceding the rights of
the native Tartars to the soil of which they
were formerly dispossessed by foreigners,
and making that concession in consequence
of a successful system y agrarian boycot
ting. It were too nffleh to expect that
Lord Salisbury’s government would stoop to
follow in any wise the example here by a
power which his lordship still considers to
be beyond the pale of Western civilization;
and yet he might do so with salutary effects
King of the Dudes.
From the New York Sun.
Mr. Robert G. Hilliard stepped from the
door of a cab yesterday afternoon, dismissed
tho driver with a haughty gesture and a
handful of coin, and stood on the corner of
Twenty-sixth street aud Broadway in the
attitude of ueep and sombre meditation.
Several of the loungers in Delmonico’s
moved nearer the window and gazed at the
new king of the dudes. One of them, Mr.
Edward Saportas, who is an old subject,
and an ardent imitator of the ex-King Berry
Wall, breathed hard as he gazed over Bar
ton Key's shoulders at the successor of
the former monarch, and he whispered
“Where’s Berry Wall?”
“Haven’t seem him,” said Key shortly.
“Waiter” shouted Mr.Saportas, nervously,
“Go in the other room and see if Mr. Wall’s
there. If he is send him in here at once.”
The waiter hurried in and came out with
the information that Mr. Wall had not been
there at all during the day. Then Mr.
Saportas fell into a deep and earnest inspec
tion of the man who stood on the comer en
gaged, apparently, in a futile effort to
a date. w
Mr. Hilliard was quite unconscious of the
excitement he created. Ho had on a pair of
gloves that were made to order by Jones,
and which are said to have thrown Mr.
Wall into a state of acute and bitter woe
when lie first saw them on exhibition in the
window of a glove store. He made every
possible effort to buy them, but he was un
successful to the last. They were a pale
salmon tint, relieved by white stitching.
Mr. Hilliard’s shirt was a groundwork of
dead white, with a dashing superstructure
of green bare. He wore sea-green emeralds
for sleeve buttons, which contrasted well
with the shade of the shirt, and ho wore a
delicate olive-green scarf around his neck.
His collar, of course, was white. In the
scarf was another shade of green in the
shape of an aquamarine stone.
His waistcout looked like oil-cloth, buteit
was not. It was a beautiful pattern of
squares and bars, one molting into the other.
It was green and white, with a terracotta
shade in the binding. It was made of linen.
The actor’s coat was an extraordinary bit of
poods, which it is said cannot bo duplicated
m New York. It was black, with big wool
ly knobs Stic sing out aii over it, and it fitted
faultlessly. The trousers were wide and
tho seams ironed high. The overgaiters
were of the peculiar shade of terracotta
known as moose skin, the shoes varnished, of
course, aud the hat a terracotta Derby.
Even Mr. Hilliard’s cane was enameled with
the various shades of terracotta and green
that permeated his attire. He stood for a
moment in deep contemplation, and then,
glancing at his watch, bailed a hansome
and was whirled away. That was tho only
glimpse that the Delrnonico idlers had of the
new king of the dudes yesterday afternoon.
