Two Speeches Delivered In
Salt Lalre Yesterday.
23maawrue of the Day Were Iforcl
STtPrcBenteci Democratic Prom
ise Xot F-BlSUed.
SALT LAKE, Sept 2L The special
Koosevelt train, which laid at Ogden last
sight, pulled out for Salt Lake at 9:30
o'clock this morning, arriving at 10:30.
Governor Richards, of Wyoming, and
united States Senator "Warren, of life
Bame state, were on board the train. Sen
ator Shoup, of Idaho, and Senator Carter,
of Montana, were still with the Roose
Veit party.
At Salt Lake the train was met by a
great number of people and a. brigade of
Hough Riders, who escorted the Gover
nor through the principal streets, where
"fla.tering demonstrations toolc place.
governor Roosevelt was driven to the
Jilta Club this morning, and was there
snet by Hon. R. C. Kerens, committeeman
irdm Missouri, and Perry S. Heath, sec
retary of the National committee. One
hundred and fifty cowboys were In the
Street in front of the club, and the Gov--ernor
was persuaded to mount a horse
and take a gallop with the boys.
As they prepared for the start. Governor
Koosevelt remarked to the captain of the
troop: "Now, boys, when we start, lead
off on a gallop." This was done, and
thB 'column ot horsemen were soon flying
Iown the street and disappeared in the
dust. The ride lasted for about an hour.
From a -standpoint of "human Interest,
Governor Roosevelt's -visit to Salt Lake
"City was the most interesting, both from
a. political and social point of view, of any
that ho has yet made on his long 'tour.
On his return from his gallop with the
Hough Riders he visited the famous Mor
mon Tabernacle to listen to an organ
recital by Professor Dayncs. The Gover
nor enjoyed the musical treat greatly,
and at its close he exclaimed, enthusias
tically,, "This is the best thing I have
seen yet. I have enjoyed it immensely.
Itls superb."
Turlng the morning Governor Roosevelt
Jsent the ilrst long-distance telephone mes
sage over the line just constructed be
tween Salt Lake and Cheyenne, a distance
or E50 miles. Governor Roosevelt and
Perry S. Heath were each presented with
a genuine cewboy saddle and bridle to
day by Utah friends.
At the Saltalr Pavilion Governor Rooso
Velt spoke In part as follows:
"It must be to every man who is inter
ested in this country a matter of the keen
est delight to come here and see the mar
vels that have been worked by man's in
dustry and thrift, by his capacity, fore
sight and Intelligence, hGre in this state.
JMTich remains to be done, and the Na
tional Government should, in my judg
ment, do Its part, for here In the "West
the nest great .stride must be taken by
means of irrigation. It is wise and proper
that the National Government should do
Its part in creating proper storage reser
voirs and proper means for distributing
water, and by that means the products of
this country will be tripled and quadru
ped. "Now, gentlemen, I have but a word to
say to you you, my fellow-cltlzens, and
you men and women of this great state. I
will touch upon just one of the issues of
this campaign thiB afternoon. What I
nave to say is suggested by what has been
in the papers during the past two days,
and by what I have seen here myself.
The other day Mr. Bryan, in his speech at
Chicago, is reported as having said that
it boded ill for the Republic to have 103.003
soldiers walking about in idleness. This
morning I toolc lunch as a guest of some
of your citizens, among whom were three
men who wore the regular uniform of the
United States Army, and all of whom
were with me at Santiago, the eldest of
whom, a Lteutenant--Colonel, walks with
a cane because on the second day of the
siege, when walking about In idleness, a
shrapnel struck him, and he will walk
lame for the balance of his life.
"You read in the papers this morning
about how a band of our men "were at
tacked by 10 times their number of Fili
pinos yecterday, and how a third of them
were killed and wounded before they beat
off their foes. Do you think those men
were walking about in idleness? A third
of them are lying at this moment either
dead or on hospital cots, suffering from
wounds that they received. Do you not
think that the courage of these men and
their patient endurance of suffering and
hardship in what they have done in up
holding the flag should entitle them, to a
better reward than some slander or sneer
about their 'walking abbut In Idleness?
That news came this morning.
"I feel that in thlscrlsls, at this period
of our history, we have the right to 'ap
peal to every man In whose veins' the red
blood flows, to stand with us now. 1 have
the right to appeal to every woman who
jgladly sent a son, a brother or a lover to
the war. I have a right to appeal to you
that what has been gained by the blood of
our brethren and the children of our loins
shall not be forfeited through craven
weakness. I ask that all good Americans,
and, beyond and above all others, that
you of the "West you who embody all that
Is most glorious in American, citizenship.
shall see to It that at the outBeVof the'
new century that is upon us, this Nation'
shall not abandon its duty; that It shall
not abandon those friendly islanders who
"have trusted to our good faith, and that
Jt shall not cringe before the task in front
ot "us; that this Nation shall not play the
part of a weakling and a coward, but that
it shall stride forward with the strength
of a giant, and shall make it evident to
the nations of the world- that they may
know now, once for all, that wherever the
American flag has been hoisted in honor
it shall never bo pulled down in dishonor."
Senator Carter, of Montana, spoke
The meeting at the Salt Lake Theater
tonight was one of large proportions. The
largest assembly-room that could be ob
tained was selected, but it was not large
enough to contain those who sought ad
mission. The seats were filled, the three
large galleries were fllled. the stage was
filled and all the standing room was oc
cupied to such an extent that members
of the National committee, and even
members of the reception committee
themselves and members of the press
could not obtain admittance. Mr. Roose
velt spoke, In part, as follows:
"A great task lies before us, the task
of bringing orderly liberty to the people
of the islands of the Philippines. That la
what we have promised, and we will see
to it that it Is followed by a sufficient
quantity of performance. Wo have heartt
a good deal recently of the Declaration
of Independence and of the doctrine of
the consent of the governed. That doc
trine was enunciated In TTTS. More than
85 years went by before that doctrine was
put Into actual effect. It was three
quarters of a century after Thomas Jef
ferson had said it that Abraham Lin
coln put it Into practice. Three-quarters
of a century went by after the promise
was made before we realized the per
formance in his country. It was well
to have it said, but It was impossible to
reach the ideal at once. It could only
be attained jstep by step. Now; our op
ponents talk of liberty to the Philip
pines. The Philippines shall have liber
ty; aye, they shall have a measure ot
liberty of which thev have been In
absolute limorance throughout the ages. 1
"They shall have such liberty -as they
nave never known under Spanish rule,
and such a measure of liberty as they
never could know under the rule of the
tyrannical and bloodthirsty oligarchy of
their own people. They shall have lib
erty but they shall have it under the
American flag.
We oan say that-ws stand for jus
tice. Let us" see to it that this NaUCh,
in this generation, stands for justice for
all; for eqnal dealing with the strong and
the weak; let us see to it that our' In
ternational obligations aXe performed; let
us see to it that the nations of the world
understand that wo will do justice, hot
through fear, but because we love Jus
tice.. We can afford to be very gentle,
because we are very strong. We can
insist upon righteous dealings with our
people because we ask nothing that wo
do not give in return. We, as a Nation,
can work out our destiny as It should be,
and we can handle ourselves as each pri
vate citizen should handle himself, if he
Is to stand well with his fellows. This
Is a boast that comes not from fear;
It is a boast that comes not from shrink
ing from our duty, but a boast that fol
lows effort and successful performance
that comes with triumph achieved. We
should not shrink from oun duty, If we
have realized It. We should approach It
In a sane ahd sober spirit; as each man
and woman would approach a task in
volving the1 most serious duties" of life.
Let .us see to It by our actions; let us
see to It by our votes that we appreciate
the material well-being which this coun
try has attained; that we compare the
promises and the performances of the last
four years on the on$ side with the pro
phecies of disaster which have signally
failed on the other side; th&t you vote
to keep the material prosperity which
stands at the foundation of our National
well-being, and that you vote, further
more, for what Is even dearer, and higher
than material prosperity; that you vote
to give your children and your children's
cmidren a moral example that comes from
a sense of duty done by their fathers ana
their forefathers. Our authority extends
over the Philippines now; If we shrink
back from the task that is before us t
will show that our forefathers who fought
the great Civil War for .the preserva
tion;, of this Government are better and
braver than we are. If we do. that we
will have shown ourselves as a Nation to
have ended inglorlously a career that be-,
gan gloriously. I ask that you pike the
first rjtep right; that you shall so act in
the face of the nations of the world that
they shall learn once and for f.11 that
wheh this Nation" once- holstx ihe flag
It shall not be pulled -down.'
Northern Pacific Passengers Robbed
Kenr Rathdram.
SPOKANE, Sept. 22.-ilngle-handed, a
masked robber held up the west-bound
passenger train on the Northern Pacific
at 1 o'clock this morning, and succeeded
in getting away with between $400 and
$500 in cash, several watches and a quan
tity of jewelry. -The robbery occurred
after the train left Athol, Ida., and the
lone robber left the train at Rathdrum.
The hold-up was evidently carefully
planned, and was executed with a cool
deliberation which showed the robber
thoroughly understood his business. Until
he, left the train, few of the passengers
realized that only one man was in the
Conductor Dunning was the only per
son on the train who offered serious re
sistance, and a few shots from the rob
ber's gun effectually Bilenced the train
man. As the robber stepped off the train
at Rathdrum, the conductor came out ot
the tourist car and fired twice at the rob
ber. The latter returned the fire, clipping
a piece of leather from the conductor's
shoe. No one was hurt during the hold
up, but every occupant of three cars was
The man boarded the train at Sand
Point, Ida., where a short stop was made.
He Is described as being a little over five
feet in height of slight build, had a light
mustache and wore a dark suit of clothes,
a mask and a black slouch hat.
After the train left Athol he gained. the
rear of the second Pullman sleeper and
at once began operations. From berth
to berth he worked, waking up the sleep-'
'ers and demanding their valuables, while
covering them with a formidable-looking
revolver. Some of the passengers in
sist that his hands were full of revol
vers. Upon his arm ho carried a short
sack made of a coat sleeve. For some
reason he did not use the' sack, but
slipped money and valuables into his
After cleaning up both Pullmans, .the
robber entered the tourist car. Here the
occupants began to scream with terror
and attracted the attention of the con
ductor, who was in tho forward part
of the coach. Ho came down the alBle
and the robber backed out of the car door,
stepping off the platform as the trainwas
pulling into Rathdrum.
Drawing his revolver, the conductor
fired twice at the man, who at once
turned and fired three times at the con
ductor, who beat a hasty retreat into tho
car. ..The robber, escaped before the alarm
"could, be given to the 'few people at

How They Peel About Xt.
Tacoma News.
The City of Portland is being congratu
lated throughout the country on its ap
parent gain In population of M.95 per
cent: during the decade from 1S90 to. 100.
IFor Instance, the Chicago Tribune says:
"Portland. Or., had 46.3S5 inhabitants in
1890. It has 90.425 now. This is a gain
of 94.95, per cent, and Is the largest per
centage yet recorded, with the exception
of that for Atlantic City." Reduced to
percentages, this statement Is little less
than half true, for the gain In population
is in reality less than 45.74 per Cent, In
stead of 9J.S5 per cent.
In 1590, when the census was taken, Al
blna hod 5129. Bast Portland 10,633, and
Portland proper, fi,3S5 population. This
would give in 190 to the territory now
within tho city llmite of Portland a total
population of 62.046. Since 1S90 Alblna and
East Portland have been added to Port
land, and the total for the expanded city
in 1900 is 90,426.
Assuming that the suburbs of Alblna
and East Portland have not increased
their population during the decade, and
deducting their total of 15,661. In 1S90, from
the present total ot Portland, It makes
the population of Portland proper, not at
tained by annexation, 74,765."
Portland Is careful not to explain that
the greater part of Its present growth
was obtained by the expansion of its city
limits, and is accepting Ill-founded con
gratulations while it holds Its breath for
fear the deception will be disclosed.
When Tacoma expands so as to take In
Puyallup and Seattle. It will break all
records for apparent. growth, but It will
be frank and honest enough to give the
facts. It will not, like Portland, accept
praise to which it is not entitled.

Convinced That the United Stntes
Senate Would Not Seat Him.
SALT LAKE, Utah, Sept. 21. The fol
lowing signed statement has been given
to the Associated Press by Judge O.' W
Powers, of this city, Who was recently
appointed United States Senator from
Utah by Acting Governor Aqiiila Nebeker:
"Salt Lake, Utah, Sept. 21. To the As
sociated Press: While there can be no
question but what Senator Nebeker was
Governor in the absence of Governor
Wells and Secretary Hammond from 'the
state, and that he had power to appoint 'a
United States Senator, the precedent in
the Quay case makes it clear thathls ap
pointee would not be seated. Our Demo
cratic state chairman, Mr. Burton, is of
the opinion that I can be of more service
to the party on the electoral ticket than
In making a contest In addition, I have
no desire to draw the salary pending a
contest, when I am convinced In advance
that the seat would be refused. Hence,
unless the National committee shall de
sire me to take action, I shall not accept
the appointment ;
"At first It appeared to me that I should
make the fight and thus draw attention
once more, as urged by the Democratic
party, for a Constitutional amendment
providing for the election of Senators, by
the people; but my sober Judgment Is
to the contrary. I appreciate Governor
Nebeker's confidence -and shall' always
cherish the .compliment -
Xitfaslfcea at in Washington.
WASHINGTON, Sept 21. The' appoint
ment of Powers by the acting Governor
of Utah Is laughed at here in Washing
ton. The vacancy In Utah occurred- the
same as vacancies in several states
through failure of the Legislature to
elect and In every instance of late years
the Senate has refused to seat such ap
pointees. Powers stands no chance of
being seated, as this case Is not on a
parallel with tho Clark case, save that
the appointments -were made by the act
ing Governor, while the Governor was
out of the state. The Montana vacancy
was caused by the resignation of Clark,
which made it plain that it can be filled
by the appointment of the Lieutenant
Stumping? His Old 'Congressional
WEEPING WATER, Neb., Sept. 21. Mr.
Bryan today conducted his canvass In his
old Congressional district He makes a
practice of going over the distfict every
two years. Today he left Lincoln at 9
o'clock, and, running a few miles out to
Elmwood, took a carriage -and drove 20
miles across the country to Syracuse. Ho
spoke to two large assemblies " of people
there, and when he concluded he re"-en-tered
his carriage and made another 20
mlle drive to Weeping Water.- He spoke
here tonight in a large grove, and, not
withstanding it is a Republican commu
nity, ho had a large audience.' The speech
delivered here tonight was addressed main,
ly to Republicans, and Was an appeal to
them to consider the new questions pre
sented In the campaign, without regard to
past party affiliations or prejudice. Ho
paid especial attention, to the increase of
the Army and the Philippine question.
In his Syracuse speeoh Mr. Bryan an
nounced that in his speech at Nebraska
City next Wednesday evening he would
discuss tho trust question, because of "the
presence there of tho starch combination.
He sold" that the Democrats believe1 as
much In tariff reform as they did in 1892;
bb much lh the free coinage df silver as
they did In 1896, but neither of these Is
the Issue of supreme importance now, Re
ferring to the trusts, Mr. Bryan said:
"Everybody except Mrv Hanna knowS
.that we have trusts. Mr. Hanna made a
speech the other day, In which he said he
did not believe there was a trust' in the
United States. I think he is the only man
in the country who says he does not know
there is a trust, and my own opinion Is
there is not a man in the country who
knows more about the trusts than ho
does, or knows better their names and
places of doing business."
The Senator Will Speak in Nebraska
and South Dakota.
CHICAGO, Sept. 21. United States Sen
ator Hanna, chairman of the executivo
committee of the National Republican
Committee, today announced that he will
make an extensive tour of the West, par
ticularly In Nebraska and South' Dakota.
Orf his return from the East, whither he
departed tonight he will arrange his
plans. The Sehator is anxious to follow
Senator , Pettlgrew in the matter of
sp'eeches, "and also desires to reply to
Mr. Bryan In the latter's state. Tomor
row morning Senator Hanna will meet
President McKlnley.In Canton, and Sun
day ho will be In Cleveland, leaving there
for New York Monday morning.

Coming Back, Hfc SaV, to Effect n
' . Reconciliation With. His Wife. ,
- LONDON, Sept 21. James" J. Corbett,
tho pugilist, will return to New York by
the first available steamer to" effect a
reconciliation with-his wife. Cdrbett said
li an interview:
"I received some, papers Wednesday
containing alleged reasons for my sailing
for Europe and interviews with my wife
as to my -reasons for leaving.. She has
beeh imposed upon by intimate acquaint
ances I supposed to be my best friends.
These persons will have tb answer to me
personally. Though my Wife's statements
about the McCoy fight are ridiculous, 1
am confident she madfr them under a
-falte -impression.. ' It would be madness
'for anyone to think that if .'I would try
to throw the McCoy fight, I would make
such an arrangement In the presence of
my wife or any other outside party.
Things of that kind, If done," are not
done In the presence of third parties.
.The woman 'story has been denied Over
And over again by everybody who has
seen me in London, They know it to .be
.untrue." '
Considine, Corbett's manager, who. was
present' at the" interview, opposes Cor
bett's return 'to New York, saying the
pugilist's wife's accusations are so un
just as to merit a separation, 'but Cor
bett said: "I am going back to face the
situation." '
" The pugilist denies selling his business
to Considine's brother. Corbett will sail
for New York next week, but Considine
will remain here.'

Jeffries Is ready to como to terms I will
deposit a forfeit of J2500 at once to bind

HAZELTON, Pa.. Sept. 21. The whole
Hazelton region was reported Quiet to
day. 'At every colliery strikers w'ere sta
tioned from dawn until starting time, to
persuade men not to go to work. The
strikers reported 'to- headquarters that
they were successful In inducing-a con
siderable number of workmen not to go
Into the mines. Several mine superin
tendents reported an increased number of
men at work.
President Mitchell; when asked about
the report that the operators might re
duce the price of powder after the strike
is ended, as a concession to the men,
said he had heard nothing about it. He
added that if the mineowners do cut the
prlceof powder, they will probably want
to -reduce thewages of the mineworkers
in a corresponding degree. President
Mitchell gave out the following state
ment: "'Reports received at this office today
show that SO per cent of, the minework
ers of the Lehigh and Hazleton regions
are on strike. Many of the coal compa
nies -have run their breakers, trying' to
create the impression that their men were
at work, but they were running empty
cars instead of full ones. Reports from
every 'mining town are highly satisfac
tory. The men are peaceable and laW
abiding. The latest report from the lower
anthracite region shows, that the mines
at Mahanoy City and Shenandoah and vi
cinity are completely tied up. "We expect
to verify the prediction -that every an
thracite miner would cease work."
President Mitchell Issued an open letter
to' the public- tonight; " in which -he re
cites the grievances of the miners -and
the cause thereof, and points out- a way
to .settle the -strike. ' He. says:
. "The -striking miners recognizees, their
-real opponents in this" struggle .for a
slight amelioration" of the hard, 'grinding
conditions of the miner's 'life, are nine
railroads, which, with their presidents,
are: The Pennsylvania Railroad Company,
Alexander J Cassatt, president: the Le
high "Valley Railroad system, Fred Wal
ter, president; Delaware & Hudson Rail
road, R. M. Ollphant, president; Dela
ware, Lackawanna & "Western Railroad,
"W. H. Truesdale, president; Central Rall
roab. Company of Nw Jersey, J. R. Max
well, president; Philadelphia & Reading
Railroad, J. H. Harris president; Erie &
New York, Susquehanna Western Rail
road, F. P. Thomas, president; Delaware,
Susquehanna &. Schuylkill Company, I. A.
Stearns, president; -New York, Ontario &
Western Railroad, .T. B.-Fowler, presi
dent." ,
The -independent operators, Mr. Mitchell
sayB, are absolutely In tho clutch of the
railroads. If the miners made a settle
ment with Markle & Co., that? settlement
could be lived up to by Markle only so
long as the strike continued elsewhore.
Every pound of coal that Markle would
be permitted to mine and ship would In
variably be appropriated r by the Lehigh
Valley road, thus placing In their own
hand3 the weapon which would defeat
the very object for which their own em
ployes are On strike, and .because of the
mineworkers of the anthracite field hav
ing their wage3 based upon a sliding
scale,, the earnings of the Markle men
would necessarily bo reduced wero the
strike to-prove a failure at other points
in the anthracite region.
.Mr.. Mitchell asserts, that he is an ad.
vocate.of arbitration, and- opposed to
strikes.; .He -declares that the minework
ers. officials will step aside and not ask
to be recognized or consulted by the mine-
owners if the officials of these 'railroad'
companies will meet committees-of their
own employes and .come to a peaceful
agreement, provided, however, that such
conferences between the various compa
nies .and committees representing their
own employes will meet In separate halls
on the same date.
This provisi6n is inserted because here
tofore when committees presented-grievances
to any of the great companies they
were met with the argument that the
company could not remedy- the wrongs
complained or because competing compa
nies enforced conditions of employment
no more favorable to the mineworkers
than their own. By holding these sepa
rate conferences simultaneously In one
city there could be an exchange of opin
ion between all of the mineowners and
miners whose interests were at stake,
thus removing the possibility of one
company being placed at a disadvantage
by paying more for labor than-was ex
acted from their competitors. .
Foreigners Attacked Workmen and
. Mine Buildings.
POTTSVILLE, Pa., Sept 21. West
Shenandoah, Shenandoah, Indian Ridge,
Kohinoor and Turkey Run collieries, be

thrown out of, the door Chief Burgess
Brown, of Shortandoah, in rescuing his son
from the hands of the strikers, was him
self beaten. The strikers policed every
path and road to tho colliery, and by
threats Intimidated the workmen, thus in
ducing them to return to their homes.
Much excitement exists. Daniel vnristian,
Chief of the Coal and Iron Police", stated
this morning that his force is unequal to
the task of guarding the collieries.
Delaware & Hudson Company "Will
Not Take In Netr Men.
NEW YORK Sept. 21. Presidont Oll
phant, of the Delaware. & Hudson Coal
Company, when asked today -whether his
company would be likely to engage out
side labor In the event of the strike last
ing over two weeks, said:
"I do not think we are likely to engage
men in the places of those who are now
out. Such action leads to trouble of the
most serious character, and wo think too
much of our men to replace them with
"Mr. Ollphant said that friends of his in
Philadelphia had written to him, asking
whether he WOuld meet Archbishop Ryan
in this city. He had replied that he would
be pleased to meet the archbishop as a
gentleman or Individual, but that he must
decline to recognize him as a representa
tive of miners.
President Truesdale, of, the Lackawanna,
said he, too, must decline to .receive the
archbishop a3 a strikers' spokesman, but
would meet him 'in an Individual capacity.
Miners Will Profit by Longer
Working: Hours.
PHILADELPHIA, Sept 21. An abso
lute denial was made today by General
Henderson that the Philadelphia & Read
ing Coal & Iron Company had. Increased
Its wages to the mine employes 10 per
cent The report, said he, was evidently
due .to the company incroasing its work
ing "hours from 7 per cent to" 9. "
"Thia means," said Mrv Honderson,
'that the mert fire'making' really about
20 per cent more money, but the rate ot
wages-v remains, the, 'Bame."
' General Superintendent Luther, of
Pottsvllle, today it telegraphed President
Harris, 6f the Philadelphia & Reading
Coal' & 2ron Company, that five more
collieries of the company wore affeqted
by the strike this morning. From S0G0 to
10,000 men Joined -the strike this morning
as the resulf-of a meeting held Jast n'ght

Will Not Surrender or Reooarnlae the
1 - Union.
" WILKESBARRE. Pa., Sept. 21. The
coal operator issued" this statement to
day: "All the leading collieries in the Schuyl
kill region are working. The report sent
our from Hazleton that the operators will
surrerjder,, ratheu. than lose a big Wln
terls, trade, is. misleading. The. operators
have made up their minds that they will
not recognize the jilners union If a pouna
of coal Is not mined all Winter. The
Issue is not so much a question of wages
as It Is the recognition of the union. The
operators of the anthracite region can
never consent to have a lot of "bituminous
men run their business. In the first place,
the bituminous men know nothing about
the conditions governing the anthracite
trade. And. in the second place. It would
mean" ruin for the anthracite Interests If.
the soft coal men were in a position to
dominate the anthracite trade."
It Is estimated that 700 men left the
Wyoming Valley tor the West and the bi
tuminous regions-.- Two hundred more left
this morning. The English-speaking min
ers are going west, while the Slavs, Ital
ians and Polanders are going back to
their homes in Europo.

here still remain closed down.

Views of the
CHICAGO. Sept. 21. A special to the
Record from Vancouver. B. C, says:
Lieutenant Hobson left last evening for
Brooklyn. Many persons were at the Ca-i
nadian Pacific station to shake hands
with" him. Lieutenant Hobson talked
.freely and expressed tho opinion that the
serious part of the Philippine war was
over; that guerrilla warfare might keep
up for some timei but that the insur
gents were well in hand. He believed
the United States had done right in ltd
war and had acted wisely in restraining
the natives with a firm hand.
He earnestly expressed himself regard
ing the defenses of Puget Sound and of
the Pacific Coaat, and asked many ques
tions regarding the defenses at Esquimau,
with a view it was thought of protecting
Alaska from possible enemies until the
Pacific Coast defenses could be material
ly strengthened.
Again referring to the Philippines, Lieu
tenant Hobson said:
"The United States Government has
definitely decided to establish dockyards
on a large scale In the Philippines. Our
new responsibilities make that imperative.
We must have facilities-in the East for
docking our own 3hlps and repairing
them. We had. to Use a. Japanese dock
for the Oregon. That is all right In Its
way, but we must have one of our owh
in that part of the world. One nation
cannot depend on another for -that kind
of thing forever.
'The new base will be established in the
Philippine Islands. Cavlte being clo5e to
Manila, naturally suggests Itself, but tho
harbor has been found to be too shallow
' and also Inconvenient in other ways. It
has therefore practically,, been decided to
construct the dockyards at Sublg Bay. a
sheltered harbdnabout.80 miles from Ma
nilla, which has sufficient depth of ater
for'all purposes;-and. is. really ah -Ideal
place -for 'a naval base."
To learn all that he could about dock
yards. Lieutenant Hobson inspected the
naval yards at Amor and Foo Chow.
While he was In Japan the Oregon was
docked and the work of putting it to
rights wras Intrusted to the Japanese of
ficials. By permission given at the re
quest of the United States, he was per
mitted to inspect the work. Permission
to Inspect the repairing operations in
cluded permission to look over, the .dock
yard, and the observations made by
Lieutenant Hobson thereon will form the
subject matter of a statement to be mode
to the naval authorities.
Steel Forks In the White Home.
Writing of "One Hundred Years in the
White House," and recalling- some of tho
notable entertainments given by our
Chief Executives, Rene Bache, in the
September Ladles' Home Journal, says
that President Madison revived much of
the formal ceromony which Thomas Jef
ferson had. discarded, and under that Ad
ministration great attention was given to
the state banquets, no expense being
spared In making them, as fine as pos
sible., President Jackson disliked cere
mony even more than did President Jef
ferson, and, preferring a steel fork him
self, he always provided each guest with
drie silver fork and one of steel." After
dinner" he smoked a lohg-stemmed corn
cob pipe. He wished to throw the doors of
the White House wide open to the public
but this Idea he was forced to relinquish
after the experience of one occasion, on
which he extended an ill-judged hospi
tality to all comers. The carpet In the
East Room was ruined by punch which
the mob split In its eagerness to get at
the buckets containing the beverage; the
gowns of many ladies were spoiled and
the furniture was broken. At his" faro
well reception President Jackson intro
duced" a curious novelty In the shape ot
a gigantic cheese, which .was cut into
pieces and distributed among the guests.
