Hitchcock Is Sartorial Masterpiece
WASHINGTON -Frank II. Hitch
cock, postmnstcr general, In the
sartorial masterploco of thin adminis
tration. No statistics liavo been com,-
Plica on Hie number of clothes Mr.
Hitchcock owns. Ist In admiring
contemplation of their refined yet
fetching splendor, few havo been abto
to recall themselves to tho mere
mathematical aspects of tho splendid
procession of variegated vestments.
Mr. Hitchcock Is ono of thoso men
who wear their clothes well. Ho Is
particular that they bo newly pressed
and carefully dusted. Ho will stop In
tho midst of tho most serious confer-
enco to draw up tho port compartment
of his trousers In avoidance of a
menacing bag at tho knee, adjusting
It In tho exact osltlon to obvlato the
bag at tho knee, and yet to prevent
any unseemly wrinkling at tho thigh.
Thus elevated, the Hitchcock trouser
Invariably dlsplnys a modest segment
of hosiery never known to depart from
tho rule that a correctly tailored
man's lioso must match his necktie.
W1I.I.IAM ALDEK SMITH of
Michigan appeared In the police
court the other day in Washington as
a police lawyer, defended a colored
man accused of disorderly conduct,
got him acquitted after an hour's trial
and went away with his client beforo
the court or any of tho attendants
learnod that the unknown young law
yer was a United Btates senator.
Then Judgo Kimball, who had been
short and sharp in his treatment of the
strange lawyer, almost fell off tbe
The cose which Senator Smith tried
was that of Ilobcrt A. Pelham, former
ly actlvo in Dotrolt politics, now a
clerk in tho census office here, who
got Into trouble. 8enator Smith
thought ho had arrangod with District
Commissioner West to have tho case
against I'elham nolle prossed, butsome
thlng went wrong with the works and
I'elham had to stand trial.
Twelve Articles That Pay Most Tariff
THREE-FOURTHS ot tho tariff du
ties collected by tho United
States government annually aro paid
by 12 articles or classes of articles,
Theso are sugar, which In 1907 paid
16,000,000 duty; cotton manufactures,
which paid $39,000,000; leaf tobacco,
$22,000,000; manufactures of fibers.
$22,000,00; manufactures or silk, S0,
000,000, manufactures of wool, ISO,
000,000; raw wool, $16,500,000; spirits,
wines and malt liquors, $16,000,00,
manufactures of iron and .steol, $12,
000.000; earthen and china ware, IS.
000.000; chemicals, drugs and dyes,
$7,500,000, and fruits nnd nuts, $7,
000.000. Tho total amount paid by theso 12
classes of articles In 1907 was $250,
000,000. which was three-fourths of
the $329,000,000, of tariff duties col
lectcd In that year.

Wanted Man to Run Senate Restaurant
'Pill: scnato has got Itself Into a
1 most embarrassing tlx. It has
constructed In its handsomo now $,
000,000 effleo building at Washington,
tho tlnt-st nnd most complcto kitchen,
or sorlcs of kitchens, anywhere to
bo found. It has also furnished beau
tiful marblo dining rooms. And now
not a soul can bo found who will think
for mluuto ot running them and fur
nishing grub to tho hungry senators
and their clerks oven at nice high
This Is passing strange, too, for all
the kitchens and dining rooms, with
furnlluru so comploto nnd so conveni
ent .that oook and waiter scurcely
have' tu do auythlug, aro all Iron, as
Mr Hitchcock Is plainly tho original
man for whom tho tall, shlmmcry silk
en tile was Invented, It has long been
contended by scientifically Inclined
persons that thero must havo been an
original excuso for Inventing that
awful production of headgear. Thero
must havo been a man on whom It
looked good, comfortable and homo
like That man has been discovered.
Ho Is now postmaster general.
Tlio F street tailors nro said to
study Mr. Hitchcock with great care,
In order to know Just what Is correct
recherche, they call It. Tho man
who makos tho Hitchcock clothos
would bo nssurcd a fortune If he were
allowed to ndvcrtlso the fact. There
nro sacks, frocks, cutaways, long and
short, tweeds, plaids, broadcloths,
worsteds; but all are In up-tn-tho-minute
fashions, with Just a touch of
tho distinguished, sometimes even of
the daring, to force attention which
must always bo tinctured with ad
miration. Shoes always nre selected
to match tho rest of tho outfit.
George von I Meyer, secretary of
the navy,, has his clothes made in Eng
land, while It is avouched that Mr.
Hitchcock's are all of domestic produc
tion. The secretary of tho navy Is a
splendidly tailored person; but In the
competition between him and tho post
office department tho American tailors
win In a walk.
Defends a Negro
When the senator and negro ap
peared together in court Judgo Kim
"Is this defendant represented!"
"I am hero to represent him," satd
Senator Smith, modestly, rising.
Neither the court nor anybody else
In particular knew him.'
"Name, pleaseT" demanded the
"V. A. Smith," replied tho ccnator.
' "Admitted to Uie bar, are you?"
"Ves, your honor." fc
The court grumbled and finally
started the trial. Smith took charge,
catling up his witnesses, of whom 'be
had a number.
Lawyer W. A. Smith, when the case
was all In, 'inado a. little speech, and
tho court 'acquitted' the man. Smith
and the client left, and Just then
newspaper man who had wandered In,
conveyed to tho court tbe Information
that the lawyer was Senator Smith
Tho court recovered in time to take
tho next case, but there was some
slight excitement over the dlscov
ory. Senator Smith, meanwhile. Is In'
foresting himself In tbe methods of
tho Washington police, and somo even
moro Interesting developments are
reau ot statistics show that tho share
which customs duties have borne In
producing the revenues of tho country
has varied with varying conditions,
principally depending on changes from
llmo to time in Internal revenuo laws.
"It must not be supposed, howover."
says tbe report, "that becauao a doz
en articles or groups of articles pay
three-fourths of tbo tariff duties col
lected tbe making ot a tariff and
the determination ot rates of duty and
the amount ot revenuo likely to re
sult therefrom is by any means a slm

Instance, tho rates of duty on cloths

Inch, counting warp and filling, aro

not bleached, dyed or colored, hut 114
cents, per yard It bleached, and two
cents per yard If dyed, colored or

exceed 100 tho rates aro still higher

well as light, heat, power and fuel.
Uut still It seems that everybody
who haa been asked about It looks
askauco at tho palatial quarters and
then at tho busy restaurant over in
the capltol building, thinks ot the live
ly llttlo automobiles that tako peoplo
away from tho oinco building through
the intervening space by tho subway,
wishes tho palatial quarters wuro on
Ilroadwny, or even Pennsylvania ave
nue, and sadly shakes his head.
"No mouoy In It," say thoy all.
Now, the question Is, will tho son-
ato decldo to go into the luncheon
business itself? It looks as If It will
como either to that or allowing the
tine dining rooms and kitchens te go
to wasto entirely. A now committee
might havo to bo created to run thorn,
or clso they could bo handed over to
tho cqmmlttco on public health and
national quarantine, on Irrigation or
somo other similar commltteo that
stands around and looks pleasant to
tho folks. out homo, but never does a
stroke of work of any kind whatovor.
