Washisoton, July 80, Mr. Willimn
Elcroy Curtis, In chargo of the bureau
of American republics, lias for months
been ransacking tho inusoutna ami libra
rios of tho world for a portrait of Chris
topher Columbus that would havo some
claim to genuineness. Mr. Curtis did
not eipect nor oven hope to succeed, but
he felt It his duty to inako tho cilort, for
it was, if possible intended to exhibit
the likeness of Columbus at tho World's
fair in Chicago.
Instead of one portrait, eomothlnglike
forty will be exhibited, each enlarged to
84 by 88 inchos in size. In searching for
iwrtraits of Co
lumbus Mr. Cur
tis has had ex
tonslvo corre
spondence with
historians and
collectors, with
tho portrait tnan
of the British
museum, with a
Mr Stevens, of
London, who is
lEoi-rMlnK from Pnulos " of tho most
jowus.i accomplished ami
persistent Columbus collectors in the
worlds with Mr. Ilarrisso, tho great crit
ical authority on Columbian history,
with the Duke do Veraguas, a descendant
of tho discoverer, and many others.
Tho search has brought forth many In
teresting stories and an endless variety
of alleged portraits, but no genuine like
ness. Air. Curtis
has, therefore, re
luctantly reached
tho conclusion
that there Is no
authentic por
trait of Colum
bus in existence.
There is no evi- ,'
denco that the
te "
discoverer over
sat for his por- s
trait, or that u oapuiolo's EsartAViNO
genuine' likeness of him was ever paint
ed, carved or drawn. Perhaps tho near
est approach to a genuine likeness is the
sketch which Cosa, tho pilot and cartog
rapher who was with Columbus on his
first voyage, mallo on tho margin of one
of his maps. Mr. Curtis thinks there is
little reason to doubt that Cosa Intended
to make a picture of Columbus, but as
he was a maptnaker rather than an art
ist, and a very poor maptnaker at that,
no one can tell whother ho camo within
a thousand miles of tho true likeness or

; These are the tests with which to
challenge tho very numerous eo called
likenesses of Columbus, and it must be
confessed not a single one, when you
take into consideration the accessories
and the costume, warrants us in believ
ing beyond disputo that we can bring
before us the figure of the discove; er

Feuillet do Conches, who has produced
tho best critical essay on the subject yet
A vignette on tho map of La Cosa,
dated 1500, represents St. Christopher
bearing on his shoulders the infant
Christ across a
stream. This has
' been considered
symbolical of the
purpose of Co
lumbus in his die
c o vor i es to
spread Christian
ity to the other
side of the "dark
w a t o r." The
claim has also
. been raado that
La Cosa represented tho features of Co
lumbus in the faco of St. Christopher,
and that Ilerrera must have been of the
samp opinion, since the likeness given
by that historian can bo imagined to be
an enlargement of tho head on tho map
This head Is hardly accepted, however.

It Is thought Antonio del Hlncon,

Do Dry says that tho original painting
was stolen from a saloon in the Council
for the Indies in Spain, and being taken
to the Netherlands fell into his hands
He claims that it was painted from life
by order of King Ferdinand, but critics
havo not been able toclear their mind of
tho suspicion that it was painted from
tho imagination by some Dutch painter
About a half century ago Jomard
found at Vicenza a Titianesquo canvas
marked "Chribtophot us Columbus," and
he claimed that tho features correspond

He accounted for tho Flemish rtitf, ixiint

the Duko of Veraguas is open to similar
objections on account of Its beard, armor
and ruff, although Munoz adopted it for
his official history. A picture of a be

New York, duly 30. A strango fea
ture ki connection with tho Church of
England is thu abnormal position of the
wives of tho archbishops and bishops.
Thuv aro ontirelv Imiored a survival.
' probably, of pre-Reformation times
, uml tlinv nro debarred from anv tinrtiel-
patlon in tho rank and prooodtiru of their
husbands. Thus, wlillo thu archbishops
of Canterbury and York outrank every
peer of thu realm, and aro addressed as
"Your Grace," In tho sainu manner as
tho dukes whom they precede, their
wives are forced to yield tho pis to tho
damo of every uowly knighted grocer or
linen draper, and aro styled not "Du
chess" nor oven "Lady," but only "Mrs."
Tho wives of tho bishops of Loudon,
of Durham and in fact of every other
prelato of the Church of England aro in
a similiar incongruous position, although
their husbands ovcrrank the barons in
tho house of tuicrs and aro entitled to
the predicate of "Your Lordship." It is
surprising that this anomalous stato of
affairs to which Queen Elizabeth is
recorded in history to have drawn the
attention of her advisers should havo
been allowed to exist unchanged through
thu course of three centuries.
The church, both Catholic and Re
formed, continues to this day to form
tho most democratic institution of the
world. It is tho ono walk in lifo where
humble birth is no drawback to thu
highest preferment. Tho late primate
of Hungary was of tieasant origin. Tho
prince archblshob of Cologne Is tho son
of small potk butcher at Coblentz on
j the Rhine, tho prince archbishop of
I Poseu Is the brother of a village tailor
at Elbing, tho prince aschbishop of
Dreslau is tho only child of a weaver
earning a fuwjgrodchenn a day, while an
other famous cardinal has a brother who
peddles hides and rabbit skins. Cardi
nal Mhalowitz, of Agram, who haR just
died, was the son of a village school-
i master, and during tho early part of his
lifo passd three years of penal servitude
in the penitentiary as a rebel against thu
Austrian government. Moreover, at tho
funeral of Cardinal Gangelbaur, thu
archbishop of Vienna and primate of
Austria, the emperor 6tood at thu head
of thu coffin with the dead prelate's two
brothers, dressed in tho peasant garb of
upper Austria, standing beside him.
Adrian IV, the powerful pope who
gave Ireland to England, was the son of
a lowly Kentish serf, and quite a num
ber of other celobrated pontiffs were of
equally obscure birth. Napoleon I was
wont to declare that every French sol
dier carries a field marshal's baton in his
knapsack, and in the same manner it
may be said that every faithful son of
the church who enters the priesthood
j carries the crosier of an archbishop, the
red hat of a cardinal or even the tiara of
a pontiff In the folds of his cassock.
While prelates as a rule are dignified,
imposing and stately, there are some
with whom I have been brought Into
contact who havo startled me by their
exceedingly democratic demeanor and
by their free and easy behavior. Tims
I havo seen the cardinal archbishop of
Lyons, while standing arrayed in his
gorgeous robes on the steps of the gtand
altar In tho cathedral preparatory to
blessing tho people, coolly tuck his
crosier under one nrm, much in the
samo manner as if it were an old um
brella, for tho purpose of leaving his
hands free to take a pinch of snuff I
have met In tho streets of Agram the
celebiated bishop of Deakovar. who is
regarded as a species of vice pope by
the 18,000,000 Slavs of Austro-Hungary,
striding along booted and spurred, clad
in a uarK coarse gray snooting jacket, a
' ott ten nat percneil raklslily on one
' side of his head, a stout hunting crop
' uuder his arm ami a cigar in the corner
' of his mouth
The late archbishop- of York was wont
to devote his vacation to tramping
through tho lake districts of England
with a photographic camera fitted up in
a two wheeled cart drawn by a small
i jackass Tho lord bishop of Chester
may be seen flying about his dloceeoon a
tricclo. The bishop of Ripon plays
football with as much zest as a school
