BRYAN WANTED A  J APANESE HEIRLOOM.  Japanese newspaper's received by the  steamer  Sliawmut  yesterday criticise  W.  J.  Bryan,, now visiting Japan, be  cause of his attempt  to purchase the  war-stool upon  which  Admiral Togo  sat when he attended  the Shinto cere  monial in  Uyeno park at Tokio       t0  celebrate  the naval  triumph..       The  stool,    which was- used for a,similar  purpose for centuries, since IOO7, has  been handed down in , the. Ogasawara  fannily 0f Shinto priests, which family   alone  has   authority   to  conduct  such ceremonials.  As    told   by    vernacular   Japanese  newspapers,   W.  J.  Bryan  werrt  from  Yokohama  to attend   a ceremony   and  asked  to  ho permitted to sit upon a  seat of such    good omen.   No ���������objection, was made.     But;, so the    story  runs Bryan  then tried   to purchase the  heirloom.   As it had sanctity in Japanese    eyes,   there   was  indignation.  The owners replied indignantly     the  war-stool was not for sale.
