The Unnecessary Cost of Mortuary
play in New York.
A gentleman of moderate means,
who has an extensive experience in
American hotels, told a reporter of
the isun, the other day, that when he
applies for a room he asks the clerk
to send him to one that is not elabo
rately furnished. "I desire," the
gentleman went on to say, "to leave
to my family all the money I can,
without depriving either them or my
self of what we ought to have in lite,
and I don't want an unnecessary ex
penditure at my death. If I die in a
first-class hotel in this city, my estate
must pay expenses according to the
room in which the undertaier finds
my remains, He will provide a ma
hogany ice box and a whole conser
vatory of flowers, and perhaps meas
ure my body for a 31,500 coffin if I
am in a ten dollar-a-day parlor in a
big hotel; but if my room gives him
a hint that I was a man who practiced
reasonable economy, his preparations
for the arrival of my family will not
be so costly. Then, ajrain, the bUl
that the hotel will present against
my estate will not be so large if I
die in a room that is plainly furnished
as it would be in a pretentious room.
It is, you may know, a practice of
the landlords to charge for tumigat
ing the room in. which any person
dies, and the charge is based on the
value of the furniture in that room;
for it is assumed to have been des
troyed as hotel furniture by a death
in the room, and the item for fumi
gating in your bill is sometimes as
much as $100. This demand for
$100 for fumigating is not always
insisted upon. I once heard of a re
duction made by a first-class hotel in
this city in favor of a woman who
told the clerk that she could not find
the money to take her husband's
body to their home in the west if she
paid more than 50 for the fumigat
ion, and upon this showing of facts
the clerk graciously reduced the fig
ures accordingly. At another time I
had the curiosity to ask an under
taker about this charge, and he
laughed at the notion of death's des
troying a rooms furnishings, and
said that he could rip up the carpets
and turn a room up side down and
fumigate it for 85, and think himself
liberally paid. I once heard of a
man who moved out of a New York
hotel when he was nearing his end,
saying that if he must die he would
die where his family would not be
required to pay for the house in
which he died. Indeed, knowing
what I do, I am inclined to say that
it was not all a joke when a New
Yorker said that he was walking
around to save funeral expenses."
The reporter was told by an under
taker that every room in a Now York
hotelin which a person dies is fumi
gated, the assumption being that
every malady that ends in death is
in a degree contagious.
"But the New York landlords are
not so hard on you as they are in
some cities,(' the undertaker contin
ued; "for in some other cities the
body must be taken to an under
taker's within an hour after death."
"You don't favor cremation?" was
"Why should I?" the undertaker re
plied. "Cremate, and half of my
profits are gone. Cremate, and where
is my percentage on a casket costing
all tne way from 825 to S1500? Where
is my profit on flowers costing all the
way from S10 up to $10,000? The
floral display at Alexander T.' Stew
ards funeral cost S10,000; his coffin
cost $1500" Cremate, and what be
comes of tke six factories in this city
eaeh employing from 25 to 150 men at
coffin making and making shrouds
and other things pertaining to the
grave? Cremate, and what becomes
of a score of marble cutters whose
sole business it is to sculpture monu
ments for the cemeteries around New
"But the body perishes in time,"
the reporter ventured to interrupt
"Why should it not immediately after
death be reduced to an inoffensive
"That is not our view of it. We
undertakers look no further than to
make a neat, respectable funeral, ac
cording to the means of the relatives.
We could put a body away in the S2.50
pine coffin of the commissioners of
charities, and turn it over to the
commissioners to be buried at their
cost in a trench in the Potter's Field.
But our customers invariably want
the reverse of this. The poor the
very poor especially pinch them
selves, and, indeed, run in debt, to
give their relatives ftie most respect
able funeral that they can give. It
is, they say, the last that they can do
for their friends, and they do it in a
far more costly manner than they can
afford. They saw the black silk vel
vet that covered the cedar of Com
modore Vanderbilt's coffin, and when
Horace Greeley's body lay in state
in the governor's room, they saw the
white satin with which his casket was
:linedy and they see flowers and
coaches' at ever funeral. They want
as much of tnis as they can get, and
some of them lay aside money for
months and even years, to be ex
'pended on an elaborate funeral with
flowers costing from $50 to $100, and
coaches costing from $50 to $100
more.. Now, I can get up a very xe
spectable funeral for $45, including
an imitation rosewood or walnut
casket, icing the body, a wreath, one
coach, ferriage and the grave. Some
undertakers would charge more for
the same funeral. But it is seldom
that we are asked to make such at
common-sense funeral as I speak of.
Instead, the widow who may have
$5000 coming to her, will insist upon
a Bnuine rosewood or mahogany
casket, even though I tell her that
hemlock will last longer; and there
must be a train of coaohes,and then,
as a final mark of affection, from
$250 to $1000 of her means must go
np in marble over the grave.
"Yes, we do make a difference be
tween, ihe rioh and poor of the
churches to which we are attached.
The congregation of the church of
whioh I am sexton expect me to do
ihings right down to the bottom dol
lar of profit whan I buryMoor-ineni
ber; but when a wealthy member goes
to his long home they understand
that the dignity of our church is to
be maintained by a showy funeral,
and they look upon a big bill of ex
penses with approval. For example;
within a year past I have buried two
wealthy members of the congregation,
and when I answered an inquiring
brother that my bill in one case was
$650 and in the other S700, the com
ment was that it might as well have
been $1500 in both cases.
" 4Is there competition? you ask.
Yes. There are undertakers who pay
physicians commissions for giving
them early notice of a patient's being
near the point of death, and they are
sometimes in the house of death ap
plying for the funeral before the body
is cold. There was once an under
taker who spent the busiest part of
every day in the coroner's office, and
he did tliis for years, until we com
bined and took measures to oust him,
just as the coffin factories here have
elbowed out the Cincinnati firms that
used to sell coffins here.
Do we get poisoned? Sometimes.
I know an undertaker who is so badly
poisoned from a mere scratch on the
hand that he can hardly get about. I
usually wear a rubber glove; and as
to infectious diseases, why, I fortify
my system against contagion. I use
a coarse towel when I get up every
morning, and with it scour all the
dead skin from every part of my body,
thus giving the pores opportunity to
do their work. Then 1 breakfast on

is beginning, however, to modify

of the evening funeral. It is not!

is true; its purpose is to enable busy
men to attend funeral services, which
they cannot well do when the cere-'

hours of the day. .Evening funorals,
followed by private morning burials,
are likely to become fashionable; and
if there is no other gain through
them, they will be encouraged as dis

whose benevolence was evidence of j

funeral she attended. It was her ex

were spoken for her, there should
