OLD TIMES AND THE NEW.
Native of Indianapolis Returns After
Absence of Twenty .Years to Find
' Things Have Changed.
A man who left Indianapolis in 1880
returned in 1900 the Indianapolitan,,
like the cat in the ballad, always goes
back; he cannot successfully be trans
planted to find himsefr a stranger in a
strange city, writes Meredith Nicholson,
in Atlantic. Once he knew all the people
'who rode in chaises but on his return
he found new people abroad in smart
vehicles; once he had been able to con
verse on topics of the day with a pass
ing mend in the middle of Washington
street; now he must duck and dive, and
keep an eye on the policeman if he would
make a safe crossing. He was asked to
luncheon at a club; in the old days there
were no clubs, or they were looked on
as iniquitous things; he was taken tc
look at factories which were the larg
est of their kind in the world. At the
railroad yards he saw machinery being
loaded for shipment to Russia and Chili;
he was told that books published at In
dianapolis were sold, on the counters
in New York and Boston, Toronto and
London, and he was driven over asphalt
streets to parks that had not been
dreamed of before his term of exile.

SOME VETERAN PRINTERS.
Quartette Who Have Been in the Busi
ness in New York State More
Than Half a Century.
Thomas At wood, a compositor in a
Port Jervis (N. Y.) newspaper office,
completed his fifty-sixth year at the case
recently and celebrnted his seventy-second
birthday. Gilbert Van Sciver, a
Middletown printer, has worked 53 years
at his trade.- Both of these veterans are
still active and rapid workmen, and put
in full hours every day.
Hon. I. V.. Montanye, of Washington
ville, finished his apprenticeship to the
printer's trade in Goshen 60 years ago.
He has been in more or less active
newspaper life ever since, and is now the
editor of a newspaper at Washington
ville. v
David Osmun, of Chester, was a fel
low apprentice at Montanye. When the
Erie railroad was opened for business in j
1841 the first timetables of the company i
were set up and printed by Osmun on a j
hand press.
When the Erie.eetablished its own !
printing concern in New York, Osmun i
went with It. In 1868 he had, charge of !
the famous Erie printing press on which, ;
thefeould and Fisk rapid additions to the j
stock of the company were turned out to ;
checkmate Commodore Vanderbilt in j
his efforts to get hold of Erie.
The Lord's Day.

chanting the sublime music of the si
lent, throbbing spheres, and timed by
the pulsation of everlasting life. Beau
tiful river, glide on. Bear forth od
thy bosom the poor, tired spirit to the
rest which it seeks, and the weary,
watching soul to endless bliss. Our

COMMANDER WOUNDED, 200 DEAD
Csnr'M Troops Chitrarcvil the Position
Three Tlmen With the Baronet.
When Beaten, Jap Pnrsned
Them Tlireo Miles.
LONDON, July 6. General Kuroki
has reported to Tokyo that two bat
talions of Russians attacked thfe Japa
nese outposts in Motien pass at dawn
under cover of a dense fog and were
repulsed. ;
They returned to the assault and
charged three times with the bayonet
before they were finally driven off.
The Japanese pursued them for three
miles to the westward of Motien pass.
The Russians retired before over
whelming numbers after ascertaining
the strength of the Japanese forces.
The Russian losses are officially stated
to be 200.
The general staff at St. Petersburg
has received the following dispatch
from Lieutenant General Sacharoff, the
chief of staff of General Kuropatkin:
"The advance guard of the Russian
force operating east of Liaoyang oc
cupied a position at Laugtse pass. To
ward evening the same day our scouts
ascertained that a detachment of the
enemyss advance guard, 1,500 strong,
had occupied the villages of Ekhavuan
and Tchakumenza, on our front, the
main force having remained in Fenshui
and Motien passes.
"At this moment we discovered the
movement of a Japanese detachment,
consisting of a battalion of infantry,
to turn our left flank position in the
Langtse .pass in the direction of Lian
diansian. "In order to learn the strength of
the enemy's position in front of Lang
tse pass the commander of the detach
ment ordered out vas re-enforced, and
a reconnoitering party of ten compa
nies was sent in the direction of Ek
havuan under the command of Colonel
Letschitsky. With the view of making
a demonstration insuring the return of
Letschitsky's detachment three compa
nies' Under Lieutenant Colonel Garnit
sky marched to Mahoumlzza, about a
mile and a half south of Ekhavuan, to
the crossing of the roads leading to
Sinkhi and the Lok river passes.
"Garnitsky's column reached the
crossroads and dislodged a company of
the enemy's advance guard, which was
almost annihilated. Simultaneously
Letschitsky's column dislodged the en
emy's advance posts without firing, a
shot and approached the foot of the
heights, surmounted by a temple. The
temple is less than a mile east of Ekha
vuan, where, although exposed to a
heavy frontal and flunk fire, our troops
dashed forward and dislodged the Jap
anese from their intrenehments and
occupied the pass. As tlftj enemy was
preparing to deliver a frontal and flank
attack our column then retired, as pre
viously instructed. Three companies
of Garnitsky's force occupied the posi
tion which they had been ordered to se
cure. "When Letschitsky's force began to
withdraw the enemy opened a heavy
fire from the heights. In spite of this
the column retired in perfect order.
Brave Letschitsky remained continu
ously oji the fighting line and directed
the column with remarkable ability
and coolness. He was the last to re
tire, with his chief of staff and adju
tant. .
"Our casualties were Letschitsky
wounded, Colonel Poapelow, Lieuten
ant Colonel Trakhemovsky, Captain
Soloieff, Lieutenants Markoff, Latkino,
BobrdSiavesky and Kosdue, Second Cap
tain Paly and several other officers
wounded and 200 soldiers killed or
wounded.
"I observed the fighting with my
staff from the Tkhacouan tower, and 1
can personally testify to(the conduct of
the troops. Our re-enforcements have
occupied Liandiansian.
"The enemy's principal forces are at
present concentrated at Vandiapudze,
in the direction of Uaicheng, and at
Schiskouyo, about ten miles west of
Siuyen, on the road to Kalehou."
The fact that Lieutenant General
Sacharoff witnessed the fighting near
Motien pass is taken here to indicate
that he is in command of the forces
east of Liaoyang, which include the
army corps under Lieutenant General
Count Keller.
The desperate character of the fight
ing Is shown by the repeated bayonet
charges, the Russians ousting the Jap
anese from the trenches.
The fighting arotind Senuchen shows
that the Japanese are determined to
hold the ground to the south as well as
Dalin pass until a favorable opportu
nity presents itself for an advance on
Yinkow, the port of NewTchwang.
THE MONKS OF THIBET
JUANY PECULIARITIES OF THE
DIFFERENT SECTS OF LAMAS.
How the Dalai Lama Is Selected A
Tool of Scheming Scoundrels
New Faiths Are Slowly Pene
trating the Country.
During recent years I have had the
good fortune to travel considerably in
the Lama-Land, both on the Sikklm
side (by which the mission under Col.
Younghusband has entered Thibet)
and on the western border. It is of the
latter which I shall chiefly speak in
this article.
After niany vicissitudes, invasions
by Thibet on the one hand and Kash
mir on the other, Little Thibet, or La
dakh, is now a province of Kashmir,
and subject to the Maharajo of that
country. That at least is the case so
far as temporal administration goes;
but religiously speaking, Ladakh is
Blill an integral part of Thibet, owning
spiritual allegiance to the great Dalai
Lama at Lhasa, and practically domi
nated by the Lama hierarchy. The po
sition of the Dalai Lama is itself pe:
culiar. Nominally the temporal as well
as spiritual head, he has r.eally little
authority, being as a rule of tender
years and much under the control of
his powerful council. There is reason
to believe that the early deaths which
overtake so many Dalai Lamas as soon
as they are strong-minded enough to
try and govern for themselves are not
due to nature or accident, except in so
far as accident may be synonymous
with misadventure, and poisoning is
said to be a favorite art throughout
Thibet. When the Dalai Lama dies
his spirit is reborn into another body,
usually that of an infant, which is dis
covered and supposed to be identified
by many infallible signs by the monks
of the Potala monastery, to which the
Dalai Lama belongs. If there is doubt
as to the identity between several
claimants, the matter is decided by a
peculiar system of drawing lots, pro
ceeded by long prayer and el alio rate
BOSTON DOCKS BURN
Great Railway Elevator and
Many Piers Destroyed.
TWO SAILORS LOSE THEIR LIVES
Allan Line Seamen Jnmp Into the
Water to Escape Flames Scotch
WhlsKjr Burns Loss of a
Million Dollar.
BOSTON, July 6. The immense
strain elevator of the Boston and Maine
Railroad company, one of the largest
in the world, together with the com
pany's freighthouses, Nos. 1, 2 and 3,
on piers 1 and 2, Mystic wharf,
Charlestown, were burned last night,
entailing a loss that will exceed $1,
000,000. During the fire two lives are known
to have been lost. Eleven sailors of
the Allan line steamer Austrian, which
was lying at pier 1, jumped overboard,
to save themselves from the flames,
which had communicated to the vessel,
and Fred McKenzle and James Galla
gher were drowned. The other men
were picked up by tugboats and remov
ed to the Marine hospital at Chelsea.
None of them suffered seriously. One
of the wharf employees was reported
as missing.
Before the fire on board the Aus
trian could be got under control by the
fleet of tugboats that had hauled her
out into the stream all her upper works
had been burned to her decks. The
steamer had discharged a part of her
cargo, which included $30,000 worth of
Scotch whisky, Avhich was burned in
the f reighthouse.
The fire started after 5 o'clock dur
ing a heavy thunderstorm, when a bolt
of lightning struck the northeast end
of f reighthouse No. 2, in which was
stored a quantity of hay.' In an .in
stant the flames shot in either direc
tion, quickly communicating to houses
Nos. 1 and 3 and from the latter to the
big elevator building farther west. . '
The elevator, which was built about
ten years ago, was said to be the lar
gest in existence at that time, having
a capacity of 2,000,000 bushels, but as
near as can be figured it held not over
300,000 bushels of grain, chiefly wheat.
The buildings on the pier, with their
contents, are a total loss, and the
wharf itself is practically ruined. The
loss on the elevator will be at least
$400,000 and on the contents $100,000
more. Losses on the freight houses,
their contents, their pier and to the
steamer Austrian will easily swell the
total to more than $1,000,000. .
Among the steamship companies who
wrill suffer, losses on freight destroyed
are the Allan line, Scandinavian-American
lino and the Wilson line, the Scandinavian-American
company . losing
104 bales of goat skins, valued at $20,-000.

ceremony. The child is then brought
up for his high office according to the
rules applying to all reincarnations. '
These constant re-births have led to
much confusion of idea as to whether
the Dalai Lama is really regarded as a
reincarnation with all the special sanc
tity nrurally attaching to such a posi
tion, or merely as a pope Chosen in
childhood.
The Gumpas, or Buddhist monas
teries, are generally buit with wonder
fully picturesque effect on the top of a
steep hill, at the foot of which lie the
village and "chortens" innumerable.
These pyramidal Buddhist shrines
were originally used as sepulchres, but
are now often built merely as religious
symbols or in memorial of some de
ceased Buddhist, t ,
There are many differing sects of
Lamas, but, broadly speaking, they
may be divided into two main bodies,
known from a distinction in dress as
Yellow Caps and Red Caps. Unlike
the orthodox 'Yellow. Caps ("Gelup
kas") prevalent at Lhasa, the Red Caps
("Drupkas") are regrettably lax In
matters of morality. A lapse in mon
astery or nunnery is usually met
among them by some slight punish
ment, such as the performance of cer
tain menial duties, or possibly scourg
ing, but not by the prompt degradation
and expulsion demanded by the strict
er code of the Yellow Caps, who are in
deed the Reformed Church of Lamaism
the "Virtuous Ones," as their name
Implies. When a child is destined for
the priesthood, the years of training
extend properly from the age of eight
to 20; but if a man desires admittance
the period is greatly shortened.
It cannot be doubted that in practice
there is little in common between the
Lamaism of Thibet and the purer
forms of Buddhism. Demon-worship
of the most grossly material and su
perstitious kind is the chief feature of
the religion taught by the Lamas, and
only rare exceptions conceive of spirit
ual ideas, or observe purity of life.
There is little doubt also that Lamaism
Is dying a slow natural death, on th
borders of this country at least, where
the modern spirit can faintly permeate.
True, the people still profess belief;
and for convenience sake, one member
of each family generally becomes a
monk. But the old, vivid faith is wan
ing. This is variously indicated, and
chiefly by a practical test the falling
off of subscriptions, and consequent
growing poverty of formerly rich ab
beys. A good many of the people are
converted nominally, at all events to
Islam, while a very few have become
Christians. ,

A NEGLECTED HERO.
Was a Brilliant Soldier of the Revo
lutionary War.
Miss Mary L. Ldnehan of the South
School gave an interesting, talk, last
evening in the rooms of the G'aelic So
ciety on General John Sullivan, a Rev
olutionary hero who has been neg
lected hy the historians. Miss Linehan
said that few of the earlier settlers
of New Hampshire had a prouder an
cestry than the Sullivans. The family
had been distinguished in Europe for
over a thousand years. They were
the possessors of various strongholds
in Ireland. At the time of the Eng
lish invasion of Ireland, the Sullivans
were among the proudest of the Irish
clans. Such was. the stock from which
General John Sullivan was descended.
General Sullivan's father immigra
ted to this country from Ireland in the
year 1723 and settled in the town of
Somersworth, N. H. The first organ
ized emigration of the Irish people to
this country, began in the year 1718
when hundreds of Irish immigrants
settled in the various towns of Con
necticut and! Massachusetts. General
Sullivan's father belonged to one of
those prominent Irish families which
were driven from Ireland hy the op
pression of Ensrland.
General John Sullivan was one of
five children. He was educated by
his father, who was 'an accomplished
gentleman and scholar and who had
received a brilliant education on the
continent of Europe. When John Sul
livan had received a liberal education
under the guidance of his father, he"
began the study of law with Judge
Livermore of Portsmouth, N. H., and
after two years study he was admitted
to the bar. . He was very successful
in the practice of law, but devoted a
large portion of his time tp other bus
iness pursuits, establishing various
manufacturing interests. Before the
war of the Revolution broke out, he
was said to be worth 10,000.
When the. war began to threaten, he
became Interested in the organization
of militia and himself organized a
company of eighty-three men. He had
no special military training, but he
had the genius which fitted him for al
most any undertaking. At the age of
31 the held the position of major gene
eral in the colonial militia. Just before
the beginning of the war, when Gene
ral Gage gave orders to seize the am
munition and stores at Fort William
and -Mary. General Sullivan at the
head ,of a company seized the powder
in the fort and secreted it at various
places in the stare-where it would be
out of reach of the British soldiers.
This was the powder which later on
made possible the fight at Bunker
Hill. On the organization of the army
in 1775, Sullivan was appointed ui
of the first brigadier generals, and
the following ;year was appointed
major general. His conduct tnrough
out the war was of the most briliiattft
character and he fought In many im
portant battles.
Sullivan belonged to that class of
colonists wiho were determined to f re
themselves from British rule at ans
cost The injustice of England to the
Irish people in Ireland still rankled in
the bosoms of those who had come ia
this country. Sullivan's father Was ona
of these and from childhood General
Sullivan had been trained " to Hate tha
British oppression.
In the summer of 1779 Sullivan was
put in command of an expedition
against the "Six Nations," that band of
Indians who had their chief retreats .jsai
the country which is now New York
state. Washington gave orders to Sul
livan to destroy the villages of tSagl
"Six Nations," and, if possible to driva:
them out and punish them so severei
that they would never again be able
to get together to commit depreda-5
tions upon the settlers. General Sul
livan was faithful to his order. He
burned the villages of the Indians and
laid waste their fields and drove thetW
over the Canadian border .
Hepunished them with such severity,
that they were never again able to rei
gain their former power, and thosa
that remained were hopelessly separ
ated. Sullivan -was accused by aom.
of undue cruelty to the Indians. Ha
never combatted the charge, unjust
though it was, but bore the criticisin?
without a murmur. At the conclusion
of his military career he returned to
his home, where he was immediately
elected governor of his state, and his
many years of civil service showed
him to be as great in peace as in war.
Miss Linehan's sketch of General
Sullivan was greatly appreciated. Her?
