Sully, the cotton
leader of the bull
which sent cotton
to the highest point it has reached in
many years, is that he keeps his watch
fifteen minutes fast It is a split sec
ond affair, and be works on the fast
time of his watch. He goes to bed
ahead of time, gets up ahead of time
and is on the floor of the New York
Cotton Exchange ahead of time, and
it is said by the bears that he figures
out the market ahead of time. There
Is nothing spectacular about Sully,
lie dresses quietly and his frock cut-
away coat is made
with many pockets.
He is a great man
for pockets. In the
rnsh of business
these pockets are
stuffed with tele
and reports. It Is
when he desires to
refer to any one of
the multifarious pa
pers lie carries he
can dig it out In a few seconds.
On the floor of the exchange he holds
an unlighted cigar between his lips,
and it is believed that a combination
of the tilt of that cigar and the position
of his dorby hat carries information to
his brokers. Up to a couple of years
ago Mr. Sully lived in Providence and
was almost unknown on the New York
several heads of departments, his at
tention was called to it. It bore In
good sized type these words: "Hon.
Samuel M. Jones, Mayor."
The mayor arose, deliberately took
out his pocketknife, cut out the Hon.,"
returned the knife to his pocket and
went on with his discussion. The may
or Is called "Golden Rule" Jones be
cause the only rule for the government
of his factory is the Biblical injunc
tion: "Therefore, whatsoever ye would
that men should do unto you, do ye
even so unto them."
The Uewis and Clark exposition, to
be held at Portland, Ore., has a strong
advocate In Senator John H. Mitchell
of Oregon, who never misses an oppor
tunity to sing its praises and to impress
on congress the ad
visability of extend
ing government aid
to the enterprise.
is a native of Penn
sylvania, where he
studied law and
was admitted to the
he went to Califor
nia and in J8K re
moved to Portland.
He was for a time
district attorney of
Portland and later
served four years in
the state senate, the
last two as presi
dent of that body.
Senator Mitchell has had nearly twen
ty years' experience in the upper house
of congress and is now serving his
fourth term, which began in March,
1901. His last electiou. however, was
only accomplished after an exciting
contest, in which fifty-three ballots
were taken, the result up to the last
moment being doubtful. He believes
there Is a great future for the northern
Pacific statH and that the Lewis and
Clark exposition will aid greatly in
SENATOR J. H.
Senator J. B. Foraker of Ohio, whose
bill to amend the antitrust law brought
the statment from Attorney General
Knox that the measure did not have
the approval of the administration, is
a veteran of the civil war and a stead
fast friend of the soldiers of the six
ties. On one occasion when the committee
on military affairs, of which Senator
r orator is n mem
ber, was consider
ing bills to correct
the records of sol
diers, there w a s
some sympathy ex
pressed for pension
applicants who had
ties. "I know how
It is." said Senator
Foraker. "I might be debarred myself
if I applied for a pension.
"When I tried to enlist I was only
Rixteii years old. They told me that
eighteen years was the limit. I want
ed to get into the array, aud. as I look
ed to be older than I was, I confided
my troubles and my desires to an old
sergeant who was attached to the re
cruiting oflice. 'Here, he said, 'you
take this chalk aud mark 'IS on the
solos of jour shoos. Then, when the
recruiting officer asks how old you are,
jou can say you are over eighteen.' It
was quite a stretch for my conscience,
but I did it just the same and was
duly enrolled as eighteen years of age.
Now, my record in the field is all right,
but my official record is not, and there
fore I might have a lot of trouble if I
tried to get a pension."
Mayor Samuel M. Jones of Toledo.
O., better known as "Golden Rule"
Jones, is one of the most picturesque
figures In the whole country. Accord
ing to the testimony of his friends and
followers, he -ouies
nearer living up to
the principles advo

man in public or

the names of all the city officers. One

MAYOR S. it. JONES.
George I. Cortelyou, secretary of
commerce and labor, is of a diplomatic
turn of mind. Indeed, his friends are
of the ODinion that if be had not made
his mark in the po

a talker. He gen
erally is able to dis
pose of any matter
in one short sen
tence, and he Is as
silent at the cabinet
meetings as any
where else. At a recent cubinet meet
ing he devoted four sentences to giving
his views on reciprocity with Canada.
The president listened in amazement.
When Mr. Cortelyou was through Mr.
Roosevelt exclaimed, "Why, Cortelyou,
your loquaciousness is positively brutal."
BUDDHAS OF JAPAN.
Usee Figures of the God Ahonmd
TbronKbooj the Empire.
The religious beliefs of Japan are
Buddhism, Shintoism and in recent
years Christianity. Buddhism entered
Japan by way of Korea in 522 along
with the arts, sciences and letters of
China. Its gilded images and its gor
geous temples and ritual appealed to
the Japanese mind, and the new reli
gion became popular.
There are now many sects of Bud
dhism, the most popular being the Shin
Shu, which has been called the "Prot
estantism of Japan." It teaches that
salvation may be obtained merely by
faith In the mercy of Amida. the chief
of the, Buddhas. This is the most pow
erful of the Japanese sects. Its tem-

Rear Admiral B. P. Lamberton, who
has been relieved from command of
the south Atlantic squadron because of
failing eyesight, was Admiral Dewey's
chief of staff during the memorable
fight at Manila bay and occupied the
conning tower during that engagement-
While in the Philippines Rear Admi

responsible for a joke that greatly
amused the fleet. One day he sug

Dewey that two

same custom should be followed in re
christening the Callao and the Leyte.
He suggested that the Callao be given
the name Massachusetts Institute of
Technology and the Leyte the Penn

geons. The return to this country of J. P.
Morgan, Jr.. is thought to presage the
early retirement of his father and the
succession of the younger man to the
control of the great Morgan interests.

A. W. MACHEN.
A. W. Machen, former superintendent
of the free delivery service, whose
trial for alleged irregularities in his
office has attracted much attention,
was appointed by President Cleveland
in 1S93, and, according to report, the
appointment came about in this way:
Machen had once been assistant post
master at Toledo, and when the De

"That's so." said the governor, who
thereupon turned back.
"Is that man still here?" exclaimed
Mr. Cleveland, fondling the little curl
upon the top of his forehead, as was
his wont when in perplexity, when
Governor Campbell brought up the
sifbject of an appointment for Mr.

Throughout Japan there are many
huge figures of Buddha, though they
do not receive the homage that was
paid them in the old days. One of
the most notable of these is the great

still has its worshipers, and lanterns
and other votive offerings are nearly
always to be seen at its feet.
Another remarkable bronze figure of
Buddha is in the grounds of the mon

by the Buddhist emperor Shomu. The
statue, which was erected several hun
dred years later, stands about fifty feet
high, and its face is eight and a half
