Washington, Nov. 3. President Roosevelt bas issued his proclama tion naming Thursday, November 30, as a day ot Inankseiviog as follows: By tbe president of the United States of America. A. proclamation: Wnen, nearly three centuries ago the first settlers came to tbe coun try which bas now become this great republic, they faced not only hardship and privation but tembl neks to their lives. In those grim years the custom grew of setting apart one day in each year for special service thanksgiving to the Almighty for preserving the people through the changing seasons. The custom has now become national and hallowed by immemorialusage. We live in easier and more plen tiful times than our torefathers, the men who with rugged strength faced the tugged days, and yet the dangers to national life are quite as great now as at any previous time in our history. It is. eminently fit ting that once a year our psople should set apart a day for praise and thanksgiving to the giver of good and at the same time they express their thankfulness for the abund ant mercies received, should man fully acknowledge their shortcom ings and pledge themselves solemn ly and in good faith to.slrive to ov ercome 'hem: -During5 the past year we have been blessed with bountiful crops. Our business pros perity has been g-eat. " No other people has ever stood on as high a level of material wellbeiog as ours now stands.' We are not threaten ed by foes flam without. The foes from whom we should pray to be delivered are our passions, appetites and follies; and against these there is always need that we should warn. Therefore,1 1 now set apart Thurs day, the 3oth day of this November as a day of thanksgiving for the past and of prayer' for the future, and on that day I ask that through out the nation the people gather in their homes and places of worship and, and in rendering thanks unto the most high for the manifold blessings of the past year, consecrate themselves to a life of cleanliness, honor and wisdom, so that this na tion may do its allotted work on earth in a manner worthy of those who founded it and of those who preserved it. In witness whereof I have here unto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be af fixed. Done at the City of Washington, this second day of November in the year of Our Eord, One Thousand Nine Hundred and Five and of the Independence of the United States the One Hundred and Thirtieth. THEODORE ROOSEVELT. By the President. ELIHU ROOT, Secretary of State. Washington, Nov. 4. For obvi ous reasons, no member of the ad ministration can be Quoted on the matter of Mitchell's case, but if the president s views and those of his various cabinet officers could . be printed, the peeple of Oregon would have no doubt as to the position of the administration. So far, the ad ministration has done nothing to force Mitchell, Hermann or Wil liamson out of Congress, though some officials of tbe department of uctice bave been urging the atior- ey-general to ask for an advance ment of tbe Mitchell case on tbe docket of the United S ates supreme court. If this is done, and tbe su preme court sustains tbe findings of the lower court, Mitchell will be eprived of his epat some time this winter and Governor Chamberlain will bave an opportunity to appoint bis successor to serve until March 1907.
