meeting at this place. The special train
,lef t Pocatello at -6 this morning and ar
rived at Ogden at C this evening, -where
a. stop was made for the night. . ,
At Logan, the first stop of the day -was
made, and here the meeting "was held in
the Mormon Tabernacle, a mile from the
station. .Mrs. J. Ellen Foster made the
opening address, introducing Governor
'Roosevelt. The local band played "Ameri
ca," and Mrs. -Poster called the attention
of the audience to the fact that this was
also the ICational "air of England, "God
Save the Queen," and it -was significant
as It might bo inferred that England and
the United States, "with one National an
ifchem and one destiny,- ..would one day
dominate the -world, Many waraenwere
'in the tabernacle and a they, are yoters
tiere, to them Mrs. Foster made--a special

dlence at the Opera-House here this even
ing to hear Governor Roosevelt's speech.
It was Veil received, the audience re
sponding repeatedly with cheers. He said
"la 189S we took a. definite and unmis
takable position upon the issues of the
day, formulating our position on the
financial and economic questions so tliat
It could not be misunderstood, promising
prosperity for the policy for which we said
we talkel. Our opponents prophesied dis
aster as the result of .following thpse pol
icies. I ask 5 ou to judge our promises by
four performances and their prophecy by
the actual event. We b.ave dpne exactly
"what we said we would do and we now
stand for the continuance of" the same .
financial and economic policies which we
-championed four years ago. "We are ad
vocating the same policies which have
Jbrought us prosperity. Tou will see that
the prophecies of our opponents have been
falsified by the events. "We have the
right to ask you to .fix these policies
which have worked so well and that you
tlistrist the men whoso prophecies have so
.signally failed." '
At Logrtm and Brigham City.
OGDEN, Utah, Sept, 20 At Logan this
anornlng, the Roosevelt party, escorted
by the local committee, left the train
und proceeded to the Cache Mormon Tab
ernacle, where an address to the people
"seas made by CMrs. J. Ellen Foster. Gov
reroor Roosevelt and others. Mrs. Foster
"I am .here on this great occasion only
lor a moment, and I speak to you because
I am sent here by the Republican Nation
al Committee to do what I can to induce
the voters of Utah and those of you in
this etate who are women, as well as the
men, to stand In this next election for
the doctrines which are taught by the Re
publican party, which have been incorpo
rated Into the legislation of that party
because that legislation has been con
structive legislation which has made the
puntry what it is today. I am not hero
to speak to you of doctrines -and prin
ciples, I am only here ,to congratulate
you upon the pleasure in store for you
The Tabernacle was , well filled, and
Governor Roosevelt spoke in part-as fol
lows: 1 am more glad than I can wejl ex
press to have an opportunity of .speak
ing to you, the men and women or the
sons and daughters of the men and
women who stretched out lntothis land
and conquered the wilderness for the Na
tion. I come to speak to you on party
issues and upon Issues that are far more
than party. I appeal not merely to Re
publicans but I appeal to every man and
woman proud of the country's past and
confident of the country's future and
who are resolved to attain that future
and to stand by the country now. I
would challengo the right of any of you
here to be a better Westerner than I
an. It has -never been my fortune be
fore to get lnto your wonderful state,
but Idaho, Montana and the Dakotas I
Imew well for years. I have worked wjth
the people; I saw them close up. I knew
what they could do, what they were ca
pable of, and because I know the "West.
I feel that I know this country. I feel
"that I know the American people. I feel
sure that when our people have once
started to do a piece of work they will
see it through without fail.
"This morning, through my good for
tune, I have been able to drive about
your beautiful town and to travel through
your wonderful and beautiful valley.
'More and more as I look at it. as I see
what you and your forefathers have done,
snore and more it has made me feel proud
as an American to think what sou, my
fellow Americans have done. More' and
more I feel confident as to what ie can
yet do. "We are not a people who have
to take refuge in pride of ancestry, and
admit that we, of this day. are unable
to do deeds ourselves. On the contrary,.
we take the greatest pride in the. deeds
of the men who went before us; and ij
xeei tnat tne very fact that those deeas
"vreTQ done must spur -us-on to do, deeds
-also. It is a great thing to have material
greatness: it is a great thing to be able
t to point to !he -hardships and tho .sacrl
' Aces necessary 'to develop the resources
of a great country; but there 3s some
thing that lies back -of and teven above
material development." -It is a greater
thing to "have the men and women them
selves. I admire ihe way you 'have come
. into the wilderness and have made it
blossom like the rose. I admire what you
3iave done here in building up the coun-trjv-the
farms, the ranches, the cities you
have built I look at your crops, and,
look at the output, of your mines, and
everything else that you have here, but
what I think you have the most cause
to be proud of is your children. I be
lieve with all my soul in the old doc
trine that blessed are they who build for
the future; who bring up citizens to rule
the land; citizens to spread our name and
our blood and our principles throughout
the world's universal space; to make the
name of America not only supreme in
the continent, as the elder among you
did, and who now go forth inthe face
of the world to make our country. In the
century that Ib to come, stand toward
the Old "World as it has stood toward
this continent In the century that is
closing. Each generation has its allotted
task, and as we do that task, so do' wo
or do we not leave a heritage of honor to
those who come after us.
"Now, why are we here today? "Why
cm I about to speak to you? Rpcause
your fathers were not timid" weaklings;
because the men and women of the mid
dle of the 19th century came out Into
this "Western country, driving your white
topped prairie schooners -with the slow
ox'-trains or mules or horses. But you
have all seen the women and the small
er children In the wagon and the larger
tow-headed tot walking alongside and the,
big boys driving the catle. But you know
jt all. Tou came out here with your cat
tle and household goods to make homes'
and build up -great commonwwealths. In
rthe words of Lowell, to pitch new states I
as the via worm men pitcneq tents.
;Now. how did you do It? Did you &o it
, "by seeking to kavg an easy time; by
making up y6ur minds. If "you camo to
any difficulties, you would shirk them
and see-if you could not get something
softer than the reward that issto be gotl
In the end? la that the. way the TVest
has been built up? No, It is not. The
"West has been built by the men and
women who have been willing to face
the rough conditions involved In the sit
uation and to. overcome them."
On the issue of expansion he said:
""We have never had a movement for
expansion in this country when there
were not a large number of excellent peo
ple who held up their hand3 in horror
and predicted the death of the country.
Right after the Revolutionary war some
people of the seaboard Atlantic states
objected strongly to taking in the Ohio
Valley. One of the foremdst statesmen
of my own state predicted what would
happen If the white savages were going
to take possession of the Ohio Valley.
I, a New Yorker, am now running on a
ticket that has at Its head a representa
tive of one of the states which that ex
cellent New York gentleman thought
would be peopled by white savages Ohio.
"Then we came to the Mississippi, and
a lot of excellent people said it meant
ruin to the land and the dissolution of
the Government if we stretched over the
Mississippi. When President Jefferson,
In 1S03, acquired, by treaty and purchase,
the land beyond the Mississippi, he ac
quired It just exactly as President Mc-
Kinley acquired the Philippines, and the
number of excellent gentlemen said that
.meant the final ruin of the country. A
Senator of Colonel Guild's state of Mas
sachusetts said that if the worst should
come to pass, and we should ever have
states beyond the. Mississippi, that no
man could imagine the horror that would
come, and the confusion that would fol
low when we saw Senators and Repre
sentatives from the banks of the Missouri
and' the Red Rivers. Now the Missouri
and' the Hed River countries are pretty
Rell In the East That was In 1811. You
nill find the speech in the Congressional
Globe of that day. But we went on.
"Then came the Mexican War, and
.any number of . people said that If wa
stretched on to the Pacific, of course our
country would come to an end.. The Idea
of taking in what are now the" states of
Sdaho, Oregon and California .was suffi
cient to make them despair of their coun
try. I have Just passed through Idaho,
of which, as great a man as Daniel Web
ster said that the land was only fit for
cactus and jackrabblts. We see what It
"For the last 40 yeara, through a" com
bination of events, the Democratic party
has been forced into a position of a party
that hung back. We hav had to take It
along. You see it Is Jn the same Nation
and it has to come- It does not want to
come, but It has to come. Each time it
has got forward, but has found It was
not nearly as badly oft as it expected
to be. Six or eight years ago Hawaii.
;under President Harrison, wished to be
annexed to the American Nation, and
the American flag was hoisted. .Then
came in President Cleveland with a Dem
ocratic Administration, and, to use their
own language, they hauled down tljo flag
We have hoisted it .again, since.4 and for
keeps this time. The Democrats, in jus
tlfjing In Congress the action of the
President used the same arguments they
have used against our keeping the Phil
ippines at the present moment In the
first place, they objected because, being
a republlc,-we were not fitted to do the
work that other great nations do; that
we were not fitted to do what empires
and kingdoms can do; that we could not
venture outside of the continent In the
next place, to bring in the islands would
be to bring In an oligarchy."
At Brigham City, an open-air meeting
was held, and the speaking was done
from the bandstand In the center of the
village, a mile from the station. Speeches
were made by John Henry Smith and
Governor Roosevelt In concluding his
remarks there. Governor Rocsevelt said:
"I ask you to Support the- men whom
we have nominated, because the prom-'
Ises we have made have squared with our
performances' because the prophecies of
evil, to which pur opponents hav0 given

ENCOURAGED BY DEMOCRATS.
Cause , of tho Increased Activity
Among: the Filipinos.
. WASHINGTON, Sept 20. The "activity
among the Filipinos at this time is attrib
uted to the enpouragement.they have re
ceived frbm the Democratic party, and it
is believed that they "have been induced
to make a final demonstration Just before
the elections in the United States to help
Bryan. While the Democrats may point
tQ this uprising as evidence that the Phil
ippines " should not be retained, the Re
publicans do not believe the effect upon
the voters will be in favor of tho Demo
crats, so long as United States soldiers
are being shot down. i
It is evident that the Republican Na
tional Commlttep and Republican leaders
everywhere are bringing all possible
power to bear to prevent the continuation
of the strike of the coal miners lnJPenn
sylvania. But It is evident that the Dem
ocrats are agitating the 'strike, as tho
entire Democratic press of the East is
booming the strikers and encouraeing
'them in every way. Efforts made to se
cure arbitration are scoffed at by these
organs, and the manner In which tho
strike is 'being used shows that politics
cut more figure than anything else In It
POPULIST TICKET TS IDAHO.
Nominations Made for Three Presi
dential Electors and State Ticket.
X.EWISTON, Idaho, Sept 0. At a mass
convention, called by State Chairman
Hanson, of the Barker-Donnelly wing of
the Pppulists, three Presidential Electors
and a full state ticket' were nominated
here tonight. Several of the nominees for
state offices are some of those nominated
by the regular Populist convention at
Pocatello, In July, and who refused to
withdraw to make a fusion with the Dem
ocrats and the Silver Republicans. The I
mass convention tonight comprised eight
persons, two of whom were Socialists.
CRESTON. Iowi, Sept. 20. The Pro
hibition spec'al train arrived at Onarlton.
la., early today and a committee es
corted the candidates to the Courthouse
square, where an open-air meeting was
held. John G. Woolley, .the Presidential
candidate, denounced the canteen policy
and its support 'by the present Adminis
tration. At Creston tho party was also
greeted by a large crowd.
Jones Refused the Nomination.
TOLEDO. O., Sept 20. Mayor Samuel
M. Jones today refused the unanimous
nomination of the Democratic Congres
sional Convention, and Negley G. 'Coch

'Was a Poor Linguist.
Two Astoria men got to discussing poli

air. Evening Democrat The real point
in the incident referred to above" has
been1 overlooked by the Democrat man,
and is really funny.. The facts as re
ported are that one man told the other
not to be too dogmatic in his political
statements. The other, who was a poor
linguist Imagined he had been likened to
a dog, and immediately went on the war
path, resulting in the shooting. He was
evidently a disciple of Bryanlsm.

PmLADBLPHIA, Sept. 20 "Everything
quiet and orderly," is Jthe report 'that
comes from the strike region. ' A.'few
more minors jo'lned the strikers' ranks to
day, but not many.
The temper of the mineowners on the
question of arbitration, as indicated lu
interviews and statements given out to
day, "is very much against the proposition.
Nevertheless, Father Phillips came from
the Hazleton district tonight and is with
Archbishop Ryan., in consultation on the
subject very near and dear to his heart
the quick settlement of the strike by ar
bitration or any other honorable means.
Protostant clergymen In, Hazleton have
also taken up the matter and will en

together amicably. , The coal scarcity Js
more keenly felt today, and"; although
the Beading Company is mining and ship

The production of coal in -the Hazlefcon

Plan of the! Operators In the Lacks-'
wanna District. '
SCRANTON, Pal, Sept 20. What is very
likely the movement the operators are
said to be considering as a means .of
striking back at the strikers is the ex
panding of the' Lackawanna Minors'
Union, an independent organization . of
Delaware, Lackawanna & Western min
ers, and the using of this, body as a lever
to crystallize the anti-strike sentiment,
which the operators firmly believe ob
tains with a majority of the men in the
Lackawanna region. By .the middle of
next week the operators figure the. condi
tions In the lower jdlstrlct will be such as
to discourage the men In this section from
continuing on strike, , and they will bei
looking for some means, to let go. By
having the Lackawanna union In working
order, the operators think tlja anti-strike
element will have a rallying point- and
that when this" element gets together andr
sees Its own strength, it will not hesitate
long about doing what Its best Judgment
dictates, and this, the operators ara-'con-vlnced,
will be their return to' work. The
operators think that ones there Is a break
tne end will begin.

HARRISBURG, Fa., Sept" 20. The at

by Alex Monsyock with pointing a re

night while he was returning from work."
President Mitchell telegraphs that the
outlook Is very encouraging. Many re
cruits are being made in, the Lehigh re
gion, and he Is proud of the unanimity
existing among the miners of the, Wyo

that the maintenance of peace is more
certain than ever."

AN OPENING IN GERMANY.
Where American Department Stores
NEW 'YORK. Sept. 20. A special to the
Herald from Washington says:
Vice-Consul-General Hanauer, In an
official report to the State Department
from Frankfort, Germany, advocates the
establishment of American department
stores abroad as a means of Increasing
'the export trade of this country.
"In Germany and most other Continen
tal countries," the Vice-Consul says,
"there are large retail warehouses and
stores which sell different lines of dry
goods and clothing for female wear. De
partment stores on the order of our own,
containing almost everything for human
needs, are hardly known here. Conse
quently one finds in a European city hun
dreds of retail stores, carrying small
stocks and selling articles at high prices.
"I think department stores would find
conditions more favorable here than at
home In amount of sale and return on
the capital .Invested, but the Importance
of the plan consists in the Immense im
petus they would give to the sale of
American specialties household articles
of all kinds, clothing, kitchen and iron
ware, small machines, tools and Instru
ments, toys, carriages and vehicles, of
flce and dwelling furniture, fruits and
"I am confident that such a concern es
tablished in Frankfort could within a
few years sell American specialties alone
to an amount of 51,000,000 to I4.000.0C0 an
nually, and distribute further quantities
by giving agencies to leading dealers of
Interior towns and cities. In shoes alone
if could "transact a" large tradf. Our
manufacturers need then but offer their
products to the home purchasing office In
order to do a foreign trade."

In the Doer "War.
LONDON, Sept. 20. The manifesto of
Joseph Chamberlain, Secretary of State
for the Colonies ana member of Parlia
ment for "West Birmingham, was Issued
to his constituents tonight. He saysi
"Our opponents assert that we delib
erately provoked a war for which we'
had no preparation. The first statement"
Is untrue and the second is greatly exag
gerated. The war was forced on us by
a sudden invasion while the negotiations
conducted with the greatest moderation
on our part were proceeding."
Mr. Chamberlain ' then reviews the
causes of the "war briefly, and the '"im
mense and successful exertions of the
"War Office" at considerable length. In
conclusion, ho declares that to return the
Unionists to power would mean to con
serve the fruits of victory, which other
wise would be thrown away.
A. J. Balfour, First Lord of the Treas
ury and government leader in the House
of Commons, In the course of his mani
festo to the electors of East Lothian and

fruitless to the victors on the possible
advent of the Home Rulers to power.
