CANTON, O., Jan. 27. President Roose
velt tonight participated In a notable trib
ute to the memory of the late President
McKlnley. He was the principal orator at
a banquet given under the" auspices of the
Canton Republican League in commem
oration of the mrthday of McKlnley. Sur
rounded by friends, neighbors and busi
ness and political associates of the dead
President, he pronounced a brilliant and
eloquent eulogy upon the life and works
of McKlnley a eulogy by many regarded
as the most beautiful and heartfelt trib
ute ever heard to the memory of the dis
The banquet was held In the Grand Op-cra-H0Ufe,
the seats being removed in the
pit and .the house entirely rpflopred for the
occasion. The Interior "of 'the building wau
beautifully decorated with flags and flow
ers, the floral decorations being elaborate.
Festoons of flags were arranged about the
balcony and gallery, and the 13 great ban
quet boards were masses of roses and
carnations, interspersed with smllax and
ferns. A selected orchestra of 25 pieces
furnished music at Intervals. The occa
sion was the most brilliant of Its kind ever
witnessed in Canton, and few banquets
held in Ohio equaled it in beauty, elab
orateness and interest.
Among the 457 assembled about the
boards were some of the most distin
guished men in the civil, public and polit
ical life of the country. At the speaker's
table, beside President Roosevelt, were
seated Judge "William R. Day, who acted
as toastmaster; Secretary Root, Secretary
Cortelyou, General S. B. M. Young, Gen
eral Leonard Wood, Luke E. Wright,
Vice-Governor of the Philippines; Surgeon-General
Rixoy, Captain W. S. Cowles,
the President's naval aid; Colonel Theo
dore E. Bingham, his military aid; Assist
ant Secretary of Agriculture Brigham,
Representative R. W. Tayler, James J.
Grant. Myron' T. Herrlck, of Cleveland;
J. G .Schmjdtapp, H. H. Kohlsaat. of Chi
cago, and Charles Emory Smith. At the
tables throughout tho large auditorium
were men of state and" National promi
nence. Governor Nash, of Ohio, who was .
expected to be presont o respond to the
toast "Ohio," was unable to leave his
home on account of Illness. His place on
tho programme was. taken by James J.
Grant, of Canton.
Cheers for the President.
Soon after the close of a reception to
the President at the Hotel McKlnley,
President Roosevelt and party walked In a
driving rain from the hotel to the ban
quet hall, half a square distant. Despite
the disagreeable weather, the streets were
thronged with people. Precautions were
taken to Insure the safety of the Presi
dent, and his pathway to the opera-house
was lined with secret service officers, po
licemen and soldiers. As the President en
tered the banquet hall the assemblage rose
as one mass and cheered him heartily.
Tho demonstration, the first of the day,
was a personal tribute to the President,
which he received with pleasure. As soon
as the President and party were seated
the doors of tho balcony and gallery were
opened, and In a few minutes they were
crowded with handsomely gowned women
and men In evening dress. Hundreds who
'desired to attend the banquet were unable
to obtain tickets. The menu, admirably
served, was all that could be desired.
The material part of the banquet was
not concluded until 10 o'clock. Judge Dny,
as toastmaster. in introducing President
Roosevelt, spoke briefly, In part as fol
lows: JudKe Day on McKlnley.
"It is fitting that in this home of Mc
Kinley's . chqlce, his fellow-countrymon
should meet-to pay tribute to his mem
ory and to renew the lessons of patriot
ism and virtue which his life taught.
William McKlnley's most precious leg.
acy to mankind Is the example of hia
life and character. He believed implicitly
in his country and its institutions, He
had supreme faith in the people. He rec
ognized an enlightened public sentiment
as the ultimate appeal of the statesman
In a free country and sought to guide It
In the channel he believed best and safest
for Its welfare. Hcnever sought to exalt
himself above the p'cople he served. He
kept In touch with them, and as far as
possible delighted to take them into his
confidence. In private life he met his
fellow citizens upon equal terms. He
fulfilled to the ideal Cardinal Newman's
definition of a gentleman he never In
flicted pain. His presence was always an
inspiration. His duty clear, he never
shirked responsibility, however grave. He
nerved others to their duty. He loved to
make othera happy. He scattered sun
shine, never gloom. With all his strength
of purpose and character he was gentle
ness itself. He loved to give a kind word
when he could do no more. Singularly free
from resentment, he met calumny with
silence and unfair criticism with charity.
He was possessed, of a sublime courage,
sustained by an unquestioning faith in
his God that did not falter in the pres
ence of death. In his career the youth
of the country may learn .that the surest
foundation of enduring success Is up.
As the President rose to speak the audi
ence rose and cheered him enthusiastic
ally. When he addressed the toastmastei
as "Mr. Justice Day." a designation ap
plied only to Justices of the United
States Supreme Court, his auditors shook
the building with applause. President
Roosevelt spoke as follows:
The President's Speech.
"Throughout our history and . Indeed
throughout history generally, it has been
given only to so few thrice-favored men
to take so marked a lead in the crises
faced by the several generations that
thereafter each stands as the embodiment
of the triumphant effort of his genera
tion. President McKlnley was ono of
"If during the lifetime of a generation
no crisis occurs sufficient to call out In
marked manner the energies of the
strongest leader, then of course the world
does not and cannot know of the ex
istence cf such a leader; and In conse
quence there are long periods in the his
tory of every nation during which no man
appears who leaves an indelible mark in
history. If, on the other hand, the crisis
Is one so many-sided as to call for the
development and exercise of many distinct
attributes, It may be that more than one
man will appear In order that the re
quirements shall be fully met. In the
revolution and In the period of construc
tive statesmanship Immediately follow
ing It, for our good fortuno It befell us
that the highest military and the highest
civic attributes were embodied In Wash
ington and so In him we have one of the
undying men of history a great soldier,
if possible an even greater statesman,
and. above all. a public servant whose
lofty and disinterested patriotism ren
dered his power and ability alike on
fought fields and In council chambers of
tho most far-reaching service to the Re
public. In the Civil War the two func
tions were divided and Lincoln and Grant
will stand forevermore with their names
inscribed on the honor roll of those who
have deserved well of mankind by saw
ing to humanity a precious heritage. In
similar fashion Thomas Jefferson and An
drew Jackson each stands as the foremost
representative of the great movement of
his generation and their names symbolize
to us their times and the hopes and
aspirations, of their times.
"It was given to President McKlnley
to take the foremost place in our political
life at a time when our country was
brought face to face with problems more
momentous than any whose solution we
have ever attempted, save only in the
Revolution and In the Civil War; and it
was under his leadership that the Nation
solved these mighty problems aright.
Therefore he shall stand in the eyes of
history not merely as the first man of his
generation, but as among the greatest
fitrures in our National life, coming second
only to the men oftfce twi great crisa-
in which the union was founded ana pre
served. McICinley's Rise to Greatness.
"No man could carry through success
fully such a task as President McKlnley
undertook unless trained by long years of
effort for Its performance. Knowledge of
his fellow-citizens, ability to understand
them, keen sympathy with even their In
nermost feelings, and yet power to lead
them with farrslghted sagacity and abso
lute belief both In the people and their
future all these were needed In the man
who headed the march of our people dur
ing the eventful years from 1S96 to 190L
These were qualities possessed by Mc
Klnley and developed by him throughout
his whole history previous to assuming
the Presidency. As a lad he had the in
estimable privilege of serving, first in the
ranks, then as a commissioned officer, in
the great war for National union, right
eousness and grandeur; he was one of
those whom a kindly Providence permitted
to take part in a struggle which onnobled
every man who fought therein. He who,
when a little more than a boy, had seen
the grim steadfastness which after four
years of giant struggle restored the Union
and freed the slave was not thereafter
to be daunted by danger or frightened
out of his belief in the great destiny of
"Prosldent McKlnley's rise to greatness
had In it nothing of the sudden, nothing
of the unexpected or seemingly accidental.
Throughout his long term of service in
Congress there was a steady Increase
alike in his power of leadership by his
associates in public life and by the pub
lic Itself. His first nomination came tc
him because of the. qualities he had
shown in healthy and open political lead
ershipthe leadeship which by word and
deed Impresses itself as a virile force
for good upon the people at large, and
which has nothing In common with mere
intrigue or manipulation. We were at the
time in a period of great industrial depres
sion, and it was promised for and on be
halfof McKlnley tlmt if he were elected
our financial system should not only be
preserved unharmed, hut Improved, and
our economic system shaped In accord
ance with those theories which have al
ways marked our. periods of greatest
prosperity. The promises were kept, and
following their keeping came the pros
perity which we now enjoy.
His Administration Reviewed.
"He made every effort consistent with
National honor to bring about an amicable
settlement of the Cuban difficulty. Then,
when it became evident that these efforts
were useless, that peace could not be hon
orably entertained, he devoted his strength
to making the war as short and as de
cisive as possible. It Js needless to say
that rarely Indeed In history has a contest
so far-reaching In the importance of Its
outcome been achieved with such case.
"There followed a harder task. As a re
sult of the war, we came Into possession
of Cuba, Porto Rico and the Philippines.
In each Island tho conditions were such
that we had to face problems entirely
new to our National experience and. more
over. In each Island or group of islands
the problems differed radically from those
presented in the others. In Porto Rico
the task was simple. It became In all es
sentials a part of the Union. It has been
given all the benefits of our economic and
"In Cuba, whore we were pjedged to
give the island independences the pledge
was kept, not merely in letter, but In
spirit. President McKlnley, with his
usual singular sagacity in the choice of
agents, selected In General Leonard Wood
the man of all others best fitted to bring
tho Island through Its uncertain period ofj
preparation tor maepenuence, ana tne re
sult of his wisdom was shown when, last
May, the island became in name and in
fact a free republic. ' for it started with a
better equipment and under more favor
able conditions than had ever previously
been the case with any Spanish-American

was one of great complexity. There was

SALEM, Or., Jan. 27. (Staff correspond

abandoned It before the joint convention.
If he expects gains tomorrow, his. man

are certain of 'one more votp, and they
intimate that Governor Geer is also'like

The most Interesting Incident of the

presented with a stage bouquet of Ave
votes from Multnomah County.
"Well, Baker, you seem to be the most
formidable candidate from Portland that
has yet entered the race against me," re

they met afterwards.

OLYMPIA. Wash- Jan. 27. (Staff corre
spondence.) The defeat of Harold Pres
ton for the United States Senate, while
freely admitted by nearly all of his
friends, will not Induce him to abandon
the fight, no matter how hopeless it may
seem to him. He has rallied his support
from the various anythmg-to-beat-Ankeny
forces, and will hold on until the end
cocnes Siturday night or sooner.
Preston has not yet received formal no
tice from the members of his delegation
that, unless he could show them that he
could be elected, they would not remain
out of the caucus later than 8 P. M. Sat
urday. This is in substance the message
jgiprt,ed as ..going; to Wm last rdght, but
not until today' was thr? notice signed by
the members. The King County men
have heretofore been disinclined to dis
cuss the matter, but tonight they state
openly that they will not be held respon

go into caucus and settle the Senatorial
question and get rid of it. With three
weeks of the session drawing to a close,
nothing of importance has been done, and
very little can be done until this matter,,
which seemingly overshadows all else, is
out of the way.
Between Two Fires.
The friends of Preston are loud in their
denunciation of the action f the King
County delegation In abandoning him, and
hints of treachery and bad faith are being
freely circulated. Unprejudiced outsid
ers, who are not mixed up In this political
mess, however, are less inclined tq blame
the delegation. They were elected to
support ' Preston for the United States
Senate and to defeat the McBride com
mission bill. The platform did not de

were unfortunate enough to be placed In
