Togo Unlike Many Heroes Prefers Wily Silence to Words,
Doesnt Even Blink When Confronted with 17 Flashlights
Admiral Toko In New York. . I
[Special to the Newark Star.]
NEW YORK, Aug. 9.—It was after
midnight. On hoard the derelict de
stroyer Seneca were army and navy
officers in full dress. Also officers of
the New Yonk militia whose uniforms
outdazzled the regulars’. A battalion
of newspaper reporters and photo
graphers were there.
We were all waiting for the revenue
cutter Calumet to bring Admiral Togo,
of Japan, from the Lusitania to be
the guest of the United States.
They hardly knew what to expect.
If an adjutant-general of the State
militia appears like a peacock on pa
rade, a person would need smoked
glasses to view a victorious admiral.
That's what the reporters and photo
graphers thought and they were ready
to see the luminous hero step up to the
deck of the Seneca.
When the admiral arrived he was sa
luted by seventeen flashlights, which
staggered the welcoming party. Togo
didn't even blink.
The hero of the Russian war was
hard to find in the throng of livid liv
eries. He wore a black derby hat, a
gray raincoat and carried a cane. He
wasn't an inch over five feet tall.
His build in his younger days was
probably light, but now he has a
heavy settled look of age without any
indication of stoutness. His eyes,
when his face is in repose, are utterly
expressionless, but when he talks they
light up with quick gleams of interest
On board the Seneca he was more
at ease than any of his entertainers.
He told General Grant he knew him
by his likeness to his father.
Admiral Togo \yould make an Ideal
mother-in-law. He has so little to say.
Even at the London banquet, where
they smeared him with compliments
and heaped him high with hyperbole,
his speech of respons- was "My coun
try thanks you." He let It go at that.
Although he speaks English quite
well, Togo prefers to wrap himself in
silence. Not even a splendid banquet
can loosen his tongue—and everybody
knows a banquet is the best little
tongue-loosener we have.
So Togo, unlike most heroes, is a
hero Judged by deeds, not words. When
Japan was at war with Russia, the
mikado told Togo: "Take command of
the fleet and crush the Russians.”
“I will obey," said Togo.
He was sick at the time and his ,
I wife tojd him he was too 111 to leave 1
"Keep silence, woman," said Togo,
grabbing his sworn and heading for
The fact that she really kept silence
proves Togo a hero without the fact
that he sailed after the Russian fleet I
with an inferior force and blew Ro- j
Jestvcnsky’s battleships out of com !
As the Seneca steamed up the bay
on the day of his arrival the band
played "My Country ’TIs of Thee." It
was quite plain that It reminded Ad- !
miral Togo of something He glanced !
shyly at Uerlral Grant once or twice,
then summoned courage and said:
"I know that 'Star Spangled Ban

. u. ...b—
Who will name the 8-months-old
baby of mystery left lying in its go
cart in Branch Brook Park more than
a week ago?
This question revealed an intricate
problem which not rarely confronts
those who have charge of foundlings.
If the baby boy, now so happily win
ning his way into the hearts of the
almshouse authorities, is adopted into
some family the matter will be settled
easily enough. Through the Orphans'
Court he will be legally given the sur
name of the family adopting him.
In that event he will probably re
tain the first part of the name given
him before his adoption, since it would
puzzle his childish mind to figure out
why he was expected to answer to
“Henry” when he had always been
But how is he to obtain this first
name, before he is adopted, or in case
he is not adopted at all? Apparently
it will be the duty of the State Board
of Children’s Guardians, into whose
care he will shortly pass, to provide him
with some name before sending him out
While they will have to do this as a
matter of convenience and necessity, it
will in no way be the abandoned baby’s
But the baby will have little chance
to discover the puzzling^features in his
naming, because the records of the
State Board pf Children’s Guardians,
^he Children's Aid Society and similar
organizations are a sealed book.
The baby boy at the almshouse will
never know, except by accident, that
he was left in Branch Brook Park just
at twilight a week ago Monday.

"So they want to shorten the time

"The principle Is wrong,” commented
"Solly,” and as "Louis" looked over
his partner's shoulder, he echoed the
"Solly” sentiment, and from force of

"Yes, that’s what I want to know,
what’s next?" came from "Solly,” as he
stropped away. "Between 'bum' bar

"Why,” went on Solly, "the other day
we had a customer, a well-fixed busi

Now, what do you think of that? But,
getting back to saving time, some men
