ALRUQPEItQTTE CmZCT. if. ! CHIEF J. MEYERS AND MAKE GOTHAM ( V JACK MEYERS, GOTHAM'S New York, May 7. Here Is the pet J of Broadway; the Big Thunder of the Metropolis; the darling of the cafes and the idol of sport-loving New York. Chief John Meyers, burly backstop end hitter par excellence, has ac complished the near Impossible taken Mike Donlln's place in the heart of the Polo grounds fan. When scribes tried to tell about THEY SAY TAFT TALKS TOO The President Spends More Time With Unimportant Visitors Than He Ought. Washington. May 7. That Presi dent Tart talks too much is the avowed belief of White House at taches and other close and confiden tial friends of the administration. Jt is not as&erted that Mr. Taft talks unwisely or without due considera tion of what he says, it Is simply that he spends too much of hie time talking to callers and in listening to their talk. The result is that he has to discharge his other tasks in time which ought to be given to rest or recreation, the hours of leep even being robbed to make up for the hours spent in talking and being talked to. A council of the presl- j tienfs friend lias been held and ef fort will he made to reform him. j It is estimated that each caller at the Wliit" House who is received by the president takii an average of fit teen minut-' of his time. With neith er President Koosevelt nor President McKinley was the average above five minutes. It Is McKlnby. however. rather than Koosevelt whom Mr. j Taft's friends would have him take Hi hit) model. Koosevelt and McKin ley arrived at the same results, jut In radically different ways. In a For 62 Years the World's Best Whiskey This aristocrat of all whiskies Cedar Brook Whiskey has the richest flavor of any whiskey known. Since 1847, knowledge and experience in making and maturing have made it the quality leader. There's a green Government stamp over the cork on each bottle of Wm. H. McBrayer. Bottled in Bond This little stamp means much. But the name Cedar Brook means even more. The Government stamp means Govern ment supervision from the raw grain to the finished product Uncle Sam's requirement that the whiskey be pure, straight, 100 proof, full measure and aged at least four years baa been complied with. But Cedst Brook Is all this and more. Other whiskies, as well, pass this examination, yet there is no whiskey that fan come tip to the Cedar Brook test. Uncle Sam's require ments are only part of the Cedar Brook test. The name Cedar Brook guarantees Dot only that every Government re- ' quirement has been complied with, but 1 guarantees quality supreme, a wonder- I (ul flavor and smoothness, a delicacy aud a richness both incomparable. It JUUUS KESSLER & CO., HIS BIG BAT ' FORGET MIKE DONLIN BIG BASEBALL, NOISE. the way Chief Meyers batted when feeling right, Broadway assumed a Missouri attitude. It wanted to see something. It saw all right when the Oiunts reached home and Meyers began to perforate the dumb brutes op the adjacent real estate with bat ted balls. Having been shown satis factorily, Broadway is for Meyers hook, line and sinker. He's the best Indian in New York right now. great majority of cases Mr. Roosevelt would grasp a caller by the hand and begin to talk, and when the president had done talking the Interview whs at an end. Mr. McKinley let the caller do the talking, but there was something in hie manner which for bade unnecessary words and brought the caller at once to the point. Then Mr. McKinley would dispose of the matter in question without any un necessary words on his own part. Al ways, though, there was that charm of manner and sincere graciousness which made McKinley so universally popular. Mr. Taft's disposition is to go to the bottom of things and thresh them out then and there forgetting all other matters in his intensity of ap plication to the one. Not only docs this take more of the president time than he ought to give, but it causes dissatisfaction among other callers who are kept waiting during these long interviews. Of course, both Roosevelt and Mc Kinley had callers who could not be disminsed with a few hurried words. Such as these, after being greeted, were asked to remain until others waiting bad been talked to and dis missed. This method kept the ante room clear and everybody was happy. Mr. Taft's life system hae been to do one thing at a time and do it thor oughly and he hasn't yet caught on to the methods his predecessors had of "railroading" callers. BRITAIN'S HEAVY INCOME TAX The British Income tax Is not only the heaviest, but the hardest, most imiuixitorial in the world. The three year average having been done away, a man now Is assessed on his profits or gains during the year of assess ment. The death duties are a fearful burden on all classes. Since they were imposed, in 1894, they have yielded over- 220,000.000 pounds. Many landed estates have paid twice or three times within five or six years, with the result that they were utterly crippled. Fine houses have gone to ruin and hundreds of agri cultural laborers have been thrown out of employment. For a so-called free trade country, the duthw are very high.

"J L CANNON IS BUSY ARRANGING HOUSE The Speaker Making Up Ap pointment Lists So as to Be Ready for ' Business. Washington. D. C, May 7. Speak er Cannon la at work on the commit tee of the House, which It Is his In tention to uppolnt a 1y or two be fore the adjournment of the extraor dinary session. The representatives during the time that the Senate is engaged with the tariff bill, are call ed together only twice a week, and the speaker therefore, has plenty of time on his hands to consider the knotty problem which confronts him. More than one-half of the members of the House are absent from the capital, and presumably Mr. Cannon rejoices thereat, for It relieves him er will feel that ho can appoint a from the necessity of listening to man who is so thoroughly commit pleas and Importunities for commit-! ted to one specific project when there ee places.

If the tary commission and if he be made j Wisconsin man is kept in his chair chairman of the House committee tOjmanship the speaker will show that succeed Mr. Fowler he will have something more than a word to say concerning the work In which he and his colleagues on the commission have been engaged. ' The national monetary commission has as members Senators Aldrich, Burrows, Hale, Daniel, Teller, Money find Bailey of Texas, and former Sen- ators Knox. Hopkins and Teller, the last three still holding their member ship In the commission. The repre sentatives appointed to the commis sion were Vreeland. Overstreet, Bur ton. Weeks, Bonynge, Smith of Cali fornia. Padgett. Burgess and Pujo Overstreet. Bonynge, and Burton are 1 o longer members of the House, but like the Senate members who have retired from legislative service, they are still members of the com mission. It will be seen at a glance, that the majority of the senators on the com mission are doing service or have done service In the Senate finance committee. Several of the represent atives have served In the committee on banking and currency. It is only ll:itilrnl lo suttnose. therefore that sympathetic consideration will be given the commission's reports by the committees to which it will be re ferred.

These the Newest Ail until March 4 was chairman of the House commutes on rivers and har bors, is now In the Senate. When the Congressional committee, appointed to consider waterway improvements, makes Its report, the river and har bor body, always Important, will take on new Importance and new respon sibilities. The middle western Inter ests are hoping; that some man fa vorable to the plan for a deep water way from the lakes to the gulf will be named to succeed Mr, Burton. Representative D. S. Alexander of New York, on account of his former ranking position in the rivers and harbors committee, may be given the chairmanship, but he will not get It If the Influence of some of the Illi nois and Missouri representatives has jufflcient weight against him. It Is understood that Representa tive Davidson of Wisconsin, who held membership In the committee and who Is favorably inclined to the deep water way project from Chicago to the mouth of the Mississippi, may secure the chairmanship. Speaker Cannon, however, passed over Mr. Davidson when making ap pointments to the waterway com mission and It is possible this may be Indicative of a determination to pass over him again. The most ardent champion of the deep waterway who held member ship In the rivers and harbors com mittee is William Lorimer. Illinois. Mr. Lorimer would like nothing bet ter than u chance to sit in the chief scat, but It is doubtful If the speak- Illinois, a representative who was close to the speaker in sympathy, was third in rank on the committee.

Among the numerous religious sects In Russia, the most remarkable and Influential are the Subbotntkl or Sabbatarians. They first appeared in the reign of Catherine II, toward the end of the eighteen century. The members of this sect practice the rite circumcision, but do not believe in Christ, accept only the old Testament and observe the Sabbath on Saturday. They also slaughter cattle and fowls according to the Jewish law. use praying shawls, and wear zlzit (frin ges), praying with covered heads from Hebrew prayer books, witn a Russian translation. They are indus trious, hospitable, and can read and write. L'p to 1820 they lived, for the most 'part,' in Moscow, Saratov, Tula. Orel, etc. In the reign of Alexander I they enjoyed freedom. Neverthe less, the Russian clergy of Mohiley killed about 150 Subbotnlki and their leaders. The son of one of the lead- er" was tortured with hot Irons, and then burned at the stake. In th reign of Nicholas I many wished to embrace Judaism, and settled In the Pale of Settlement (the Ghetto), but the government bariinhed them to Si beria 'and the Caucasus. The Hub- ! ,'"tnik1..
