.MINISTERS AT HOME.
KOW SOME OF NEW YORK’S FA
MOUS PREACHERS LIVE.
Bishop Potter's Flat Archdeacon
Smith’s Brownstone Front-Dr. John
Kell and His Magnificent Establish
New York, Dec. 17.—The Right Rev. H.
G. Potter, Bishop of the Episcopal
churches in New York city, is a man of al
most military bearing, decisive and quick
in speech and action, aud yet with a fine
sword’s edge polish about it all. A promi
nent leading member of his church said of
"No wonder things move under his direc
tion ; all Bishop Potter needs to do is to look
at a thing to make it start.”
His form is erect as an arrow, his hair is
iron-gray and he has the conventional Eng
lish cut to his whiskers by which almost all
Episcopal clergymen are distinguished. He
las more than his whiskers to make him
somewhat English in style, for his accent is
distinctively that of a Britisher. His voice
is clear and resonant. Like most of the
prominent clergymen of New York, who
have princely salaries, he lives in accord
ance with his income. He does not have a
house to himself, hut he rents a flat in a mag
nificent building where some of the very
wealthy people of New York have their resi
dences. It is in the same building that
young George Gould established his house
hold 60on after his marriage with Edith
Kingdcn, the actress. Rents in that build
ing vary from $2,000 to $7,000 a year.
Bishop Potter lives in a flat that is sit
uated about half way between the ground
and the lofty top of the building, but that
does not signify anything as to its price or
desirability, because the system of elevators
has been introduced there and makes stair
ways disappear ns an element of comfort or
discomfort in an apartment. His windows
overlook the easternmost shrubberies of
Central Park, and are, therefore, very near
the corner of Fifty-ninth street and " Fifth
avenue. To all callers who approach the
building a liveried footman opens the outer
door, one similarly garbed manages the
dainty elevator, but a modest maid servant
takes the caller’s card at the massive door
of the Bishop’s private rooms. These flats
are arranged, to a certain extent, after the
manner of line private houses, with a ves
tibule in which the caller sits until his card
has been referred to the resident within.
The rooms of Bishop Potter’s apartment are
large, light and furnished with all the luxu
ries known to the modern world. Every
thing is arranged in the most artistic and
attractive manner. The furniture is of the
costliest and most expensive kind, and the
decorations of the room, not only those
placed there by the builders but those added
by the Bishop, are all of the highest degree
of finish and elegance. A full-sized Ra
phael is the most prominent painting on
the walls, which are nearly obscured with
numerous pictures. It is the only feature
of the apartments that might mark the ec
clesiastical character of its distinguished
occupaut. A comfortable odor, neither of
roast beef nor perfume, but suggestive of
both, pervades the atmosphere. One gets
the impression from this apartment that it
is the home of a wealthy society man of
cultivated taste and a disposition to get
every comfort out of life possible.
Next to Bishop Potter in prominence in
the Episcopal church is Archdeacon Mackey
Smith, a distinguished looking man, six feet
lu height, of massive build, but not over
weighted with flesh. He has a smooth round
face that does not look like that of an Amer
ican, and is set off by a business-like mous
tache and a fine p-.dr of dark eyas that
glance all about a person and not through
and through him as the Bishop’s do. His
manner is dignified and much marked by
bouhommie, and he seems to have a sensib.e
modern way of looking at tilings that is
refreshing end entertaining in one of his
calling. He occupies an elegant brownstone
front on Fifth avenue, near Sixty-sixth
street. It overlooks a most attractive sec
tion of Central Park and is far removed
from the turmoil and bustle of the great
city. When one enters the house the first
thing that arrests his attention Is a full-sized
statue of the Venus de Medici looking at one
from an alcove near the stairway. Many
other classical worksof art, both in statuary
aud painting, are to be seen in all parts of
the house, aud a distinguishing feature of
the decorations of his homo is a collection
of expensive and interesting bric-a-brac. A
liveried butler bears the caller’s card to his
employer on a neat silver tray. If the caller
is not personally known to the Archdeacon
he is requested to write a short message out
lining bis business, and for this purpose the
butler presents him an oblong tab, elegantly
mounted inoxydized silver, which is carried
on the silver waiter to the inmost penetralia
of the house, where the Archdeacon con
siders the matter and sends out his answer.
Another distinguishing feature of this estab
lishment is the perfection of the butler, who
has been well-trained evidently and fits ex
cellently into the semi-ecclesiastical position
which he occupies.
THE BEV. TIB. JOHN HALL.
Another tall, distinguished looking man,
at the head of an ultra-fashionable church,
is Dr. John Hall. He is u Presbyterian and
his church is located on Fifth avenue. He
has a round, smooth face, keen but smiling
gray eyes, full of intelligence, and slightly
projecting teeth, a trait in physiognomy
that is said always to coincide with great
sturdiness of mentality and unusual execu
tive ability. Whether this coincidence is
general or not. it certainly applies in this
ease. Dr. Hall is one of the most methodi
cal and business-like clergymen in the New
York pulpit. Everybody who lias seenliini
has remarked with amusement the striking
resejpblance between him and Col. Robert
Ingersoll. He receives his regular parish
calls in the morning hours, excepting on
Saturday and Monday, in the best parlors
of his ultra-stylish home on West Fifty
sixth street. His conduct of the matters
that arise in the parish and that are pre
sented to him in these calls is marked bv
great tact and precision. He disposes of ail
business of the above nature that comes
before him much after the manner of a
judge in court. He never seems in a hurry,
hut never wastes a second between the sto
ries and maintainstrictly a rule that par
ties shall see him in proper rotation accord
ing to the time of their calling. Of his house
nothing can be said further than that it is
one of unusual elegance and comfort. His
id-’me is rather above that of most suc
cessful business men. He not only has bis
salary, which is said to to $20,000 a year
from his church, but he gets u handsome re
muneration from the New York Ledger tor
a weekly contribution to the amount of
about a column of matter to its pages. In
fact, bis pay for the Ledger matter is quite
as much as most of the successful managing
editors of great dailies get in any pari of
the country. His income is further in
creased by rather numerous contributions
to the great periodicals of the country. Dr.
Hall is essentially a society man, aud if it
were not for his remarkable business ability
he would not be able to dispose of his parish
work with sufficient promptness and allow
him the social diversion which he takes.
His house is the scene of frequent receptions
and he goes out among fashionable people a
great deal. His manner of living is that of
a formal society man. For instance, when
evening comes lie puts on evening dress aud
never fails to defer to the canons of society
In all matters that appertain to formal in
tercourse with people. In his social rela
tions he does not impress one as a clergy
man, yet knowing that that is his calling,
it is easy to see that his manner is’influenced
by it. One who did not know that he was
a clergyman might take him for a culti
vated man of wealth and leisure.
THE KEV. ROBERT COLT.TER.
An influential and famous clergyman,
whose life is in marked contrast to these
three, is the Rev. Robert Callyer, pastor of
the Church of the Messiah. He lives in a
brick house that is less than modest in ap
pearance and is one of a long row of houses
on East Thirty-ninth street. He looks like
a hale and sturdy yeoman of a past age.
His hair is white as snow, his cheeks ruddy
as midsummer apples. No butler guards
him from intrusion. He requires no card
or other password from any person what
ever who may choose to call upon him. An
ordinary housemaid sees if Mr. Collyer is
iu, and if he is he comes down to meet his
guest. His rooms are furnished with exceed
ing simplicity and yet not aesthetically.
There is plenty of provision for sensible
comfort there, hut nothing that appeals to
the sense of the luxurious, unless it to a
long bookcase tilled with choice works. His
library consists very largely of the works
of British authors, Dickens, Scott and others
of their stamp being represented by full
sets of their writings. There are a few mod
ern works on metaphysics and science. One
cannot help the impression, as he looks in
upon the Kev. Robert Collyer’s quarters,
that a conventional old maid would make
things look more presentable. There is a
general air, boto in the man himself and
in his surroundings, that betokens an un
conscious disrespect for the conventionali
ties of modern life, and, possibly, a lack of
appreciation of what is regarded as most
desirable in appearance.

ON A HOWLING DRUNK.
A Former Pastor of Albany Raising
Cain in Alabama.
From the Albany (Go.) Newt and Advertiser.
The following sensational dispatch to the
Memphis Avalanche will be read with in
terest mingled with regret by many in this
city and vicinity. The Rev. Mr. Graves
was for two years pastor of the Presbyterian
church in this city, and led an exemplary
life while here. He ieft here in 188; i, anil
left a good many friends who will be
grieved by the news of his downfall:
Birmingham, Ala. . Dec. 10.—The usually
quiet little village of Marion, this State,
has been all torn up this week over the es
capades of Rev. 7. B. Graves, a prominent
minister, well known throughout the State.
Graves, it seems, arrived there a few days
since, accompanied by bis wife and two
children. He put up at the King House and
immediately proceeded to ge„ on a howling
drunk. He frequented low groggeries and
cut up all kinds of pranks about the hotel,
flourishing a revolver and threatening to
kill his wife and children and himself. The
citizens were horrified at his actions
and finally determined to put a stop
to his capers. Accordingly a writ of
lunacy was sworn out, and officers and
a number of citizens went to arrest him.
He was found in a beastly state of intoxi
cation, but became terribly enraged when
an attempt to arrest him was made. Rev. W.
H. Richardson tried to qujet him, but was
struck in the face and cursed for his trouble.
At last Graves was seized by three or four
strong men, carried to jail and locked in an
iron cage. Next day Mr. Graves’ uncle,
Dr. S. L. Alexander, of Montgomery, one
of the most prominent physicians in tl*e
State, was telegraphed for. He came im
mediately and at once made an effort to
have Graves placed hi an insane asylum.
It was too evident, however,
whisky was the trouble, and he failed in his
efforts. Asa last resort the disgraced min
ister was furnished with a ticket and suffi
cient money to carry him to San Antonio,
Tex., where lie has a brother. Mrs. Graves
and her children were taken home by Dr.
Alexander. All looked well for a quiet end
ing of the affair, but Graves, instead of
going to Ban Antonio, lauded in
Greensboro, a small town twenty
miles from Marion, and is on a wild
drunk and threatening to kill himself
and anyone who annoys him. This is not
the first time he has been in trouble. A
few weeks ago Graves came to Birming
ham and went on a big spree. He visited
several disreputable places In a hack, finally
?uarreling with a hacknmn over his pay.
ie was locked up in the station house over
night, but several ministers kept the matter
out of the papers and hushed things up.
The church officials will not look into the
Mr. N. H. Frohlichstein, of Mobile, Ala.,
writes: I take grea< pleasure in recom
mending Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption, having used it fora severe at
tack of Bronchitis and Catarrh. It gave
mo instant relief and entirely cured me and
I have not been afflicted since. I also beg
to state that I had tried other remedies with
no good result. Have also used Electric
Bitters and Dr. King's New Life Pills, both
