Syracuse Gives Roosevelt a
Great Ovation,
President Reviews a Great Parade,
Delivers a Labor Day Oration, and
Opens the Sew York
State Fair.

cuse, and Influential citizens.
Labor Makes a Fine Sho-winc
There was never before such a demon
stration by organized labor In this city.
Fully 5000 men and women were In line.
The Labor day committee, as it readied
the stand, sent its chairman to greet the
President and pin a badge upon his coat.
The President expressed his pleasure in
a few words, and the line began to move.
Union after union uncovered as it reached
the stand.
Now and again the President shouted
compliments to a fine-looking body of
men. From start to finish his attention
was never diverted from the working
men. In the parade were a few floats with
placards. One read: "The trust fights
us; let us fight the trust by not using
their goods."
"They are the power behind the throne,"
remarked a Syracusean to the President
as the men marched by. "Exactly, the
power behind the throne, exactly, and It
makes one proud to think he Is an Amer
ican to see these men," replied the Presi
dent. At 11:30 o'clock the line had passed, and
the party was driven to the train and de
parted for the State Fair.
A citizens' committee of 100 occupied
the speakers' stand. Promptly upon his
arrival the President was Introduced by
Lieutenant-Governor HIggins, president of
the State Fair Commission. After the
cheering had subsided the President made
bis address.
The President, who watched the races
from tho clubhouse veranda, was particu
larly interested in the attempt of the
stallion John A. McKerron to break the
track record. When it was announced
that he had accomplished this and lowered
his own record besides, the President
seemed greatly pleased, and later con
gratulated Harry X. Devereaux, of Cleve
land, the owner and driver.
Coming back to the city at 5 o'clock,
the President went again to the reviewing
stand and for nearly an hour stood hat
in hand and saw 2500 letter-carriers march
by, including the delegates to the conven
tion of the National Association of Letter-carriers
and visiting carriers from all
over the state. Just before the parade, the
President was presented with a handsome
vase, suitably inscribed, - in behalf of the
East Liverpool, O., delegation of letter
carriers, and later received a large floral
offering from the letter-carriers at large.
Duing the parade the President was In
the happiest frame of mind, and made
many favorable comments on the appear
ance of the delegates. "With, arms ex
tended, he beat time vigorously as a pass
ing band played "There'll Bo a Hot Time
in the Old Town Tonight," and bowed
deferentially to Fred Wolf, a Troy, N. T
letter-carrier, who has the distinction of
being the oldest letter-carrier in the
"United States in point of service, having
been connected with the postal depart
ment for 49 years.
As he did this, the President remarked
to a friend: "A man who gives up 49
years of his "life to the service of the Gov
ernment is worthy of more consideration
than we can give."
President Roosevelt tonight was the
guest of honor at a dinner given by ex
"Unlted States Senator Hiscock at his resi
dence, the exterior of which was elabor
ately decorated In patriotic colors, while
flowers wero used in profusion In the in
terior. There was no toast list.
In order to give the President a little
longer time In Syracuse, the hour of
departure of the special train was changed
from 9:30 to 10:30 o'clock, but a faster
run will be made, and it is expected to ar
rive In Hoboken on the original schedule

and Their Dntics to .Ration.
SYRACDSE, N. Y.,-Sept. 7. The Labor
day address of President Roosevelt, deliv
ered here today on the opening of the New
York State. Fair, was as follows:
"In speaking on Labor day at the annual
Fair of the New York State Agricultural
Association, it Is natural to keep espe
cially In mind the two bodies who compose
the majority of our people and upon
whose welfare depends the welfare of the
entire state. If circumstances are such
that thrift, energy. Industry and fore
thought enable the farmer, the
tiller of the soil, on the one
hand, and the wAge-worker on the
other, to keep themselves, their wives
and their children in reasonable comfort,
then the t is well off, and . we can
be assured that the other classes In
the" community will likewise nrosnfir. nn
the other handi If there is in the long
run a iacK oi prosperity among the two
classes nameo, then all other prosperity
is sure to be more seeming than real.
It has been our profound good
fortune as a nation " that hitherto,
disregarding exceptional periods of de
pression and the normal and Inpvltnhio
fluctuations, there has been on the whole
from the beginning of our government to
th6 present day a nrocressive hpttormpnt
alike in the condition of the tiller of the
Boll and the condition of the man who,
by his manual skill and labor, supports
nimseii ana nis ramwy, and endeavors
to bring up his children so that they may
oe ai least as wen on as, and if possible
better off than, he himself has been.
There are. of course, exceptions Vmf e
a Whole the standard of living among the
xarmers or our country has risen from
generation to generation, and the wealth
represented on the farms has steadily In
creased, while the waeea of lnhnr v,n,.r
likewise risen, both as regards the actual1
money paid ana as. regards the purchas
ing power wnicn mat money represents.
Hard and Good Times Silent So
"Side bv side xdth this Increase In tho
prosperity of the wage-worker and the
tiller of the soil has gone on a great in
crease in the prosperity among the busl
ness men and among certain classes o
Professional mpn: nnd thr nrnsnvrJtv n
these men has been partly the cause and
partly the consequence of the prosperity
of farmer and wage-worker. It can not
be too often repeated that in this country,
in the long run, we all of us tend to go
up or go down together. If the average
of well-being is high, it means that the
average wage-worker, , the average
farmer, and tho average business man
are all alike well off. If the average
shrinks, there is not one of these classes
which will not feel the shrinkage. Of
course there are always some men who
are not affected by good times, just as
tnere are some men who are not affected
by bad times. But speaking broadly. It
is true that if prosperity comes all of
us tend to share more or less therein,
and that if adversity comes each of us,
to a greater or less extent, feels the ten
sion. Unfortunately, in this world the
Innocent frequently find themselves
obliged to pay some of the penalty for
the misdeeds of the guilty; and" so If
hard times come, whether they be due
to our own fault or to our misfortune,
whether they be due to some burst of
speculative frenzy that has caused a
portion of the business world to lose its
head a loss which no legislation can
possibly supply or whether they be due
to any lack of wisdom in a portion of
the world of labor in each case the
trouble once started is felt more or less
in every walk of life.
"It is all-essential to the continuance
of. our healthy . national -life that we
should recognize this community of In
terest among our people. The welfare
of each of us Is dependent fundamentally
upon the welfare of all of us, and there
fore in public life that man is the best
representative of each of us who 6eeks
to do good, to each by doing good to all;
in other words, whose endeavor it Is,
not to represent any special class and
promote merely that class' selfish inter
ests, but to represent all true and hon
est men of all sections and all classes
and to work for their Interests by work
ing for our common country.
"We can keep our government on a
sane and healthy basis, we 'can make
and keep our .social system what It
should be only on condition of judging
each man, not as a member of a class,
but on bis worth as a man. It Is an in
famous thing in our American life, and
fundamentally treacherous to our Insti
tutions, to apply to any man any test
save that of his personal, worth, or to
draw between two sets of men any dis
tinction save tho distinction of conduct,
the distinction that marks off those' who
do well and wisely from those who do
ill and foolishly. There are good citizens
and bad citizens in every class as in every
locality, and the attitude of decent peo
ple toward great public and social ques
tions should be determined, not by the
accidental questions of employment or
locality, but by those deep-set principles
which represent tho Innermost souls of
Would Prove Fatal to the Republic.
"The failure In public and in private
life thus to treat each man on his own
merits, the recognition of this govern
ment as being either for the poor as such
or for the rich as such, would prove fatal
to our Republic, as such failure and
such recognition have always proved
fatal In the past to other republics. A
healthy republican government must
rest upon Individuals, not upon classes
or sections. As soon as It becomes gov
ernment by a class or by a section it
departs from the old American ideal.
"It is, of course, tho merest truism
to say that free institutions are of avail
only to people who possess the high and
peculiar characteristics heeded to take
advantage of such Institutions. The cen
tury that has Just closed, has witnessed
many and lamentable Instances in which
people have seized a government free In
form, or have had It bestowed upon
them, and yet have permitted it under
the forms of liberty to become some
species of depotlsm or anarchy, because
they did not have in them the power to
make this seeming liberty one of deed
Instead of one merely of word. Under
such circumstances the seeming liberty
may be supplanted by a tyranny or
despotism In the first- place, or It
may reach the road of despot
Ism by the path of license and an
archy. It matters but little which road
Is taken. In either case the same goal
Is reached. People show themselves Just
as-unfit for liberty whether they submit to
anarchy or to tyranny: and class govern
ment, -whether it be the government of a
plutocracy or the government of a. mob,
is equally Incompatible with the principles
established in the days of Washington
and perpetuated In the days of Lincoln.
'Many qualities'" are needed by a peo
ple which would preserve the power of
self-government in fact as well as in
name. Among these qualities are fore
thought, shrewdness, self-reliance, the
courage which refuses to abandon one's
own rights, and the disinterested and
kindly good sense which enables one to
dp justice to the rights of others. Lack
of strength and lack of courage unfit men
for self-government on the- one .hand;
and on the other, brutal arrogance, envy,
in short, any manifestation of the spirit
of selfish disregard, whether of one's own
duties or of the rights of others, are
equally fatal.
Class Rnle Srcans Disaster.
"In the history of mankind many re
publics have risen, have flourished for a
less or greater time, and then have fallen
because their citizens lost the power of
governing themselves and thereby of
governing their state; and in no way has
this loss of power been so often and so
clearly shown as in tho tendency to
turn the government into a government
primarily for the benefit of one class In
stead of a government for the benefit of
the people as a whole. .
Again and again in the republics of
ancient Greece, In those of medieval
Italy and medieval Flanders, this tend
ency was shown, and wherever the tend
ency became a habit it Invariably arid
Inevitably proved fatal to the state. In
"the final result it mattered not one whit
whether the movement was in favor of
one class or of another. Tho outcome
was equally fatal, whether the country
fell into the hands of a wealthy oligarchy
which exploited the poor or whether It
fell under the domination of a turbulent
mob which plundered the rich. In both
cases there resulted violent alternations
between tyranny and disorder, and a
final complete loss of liberty to all
citizens destruction in the end over
taking the class which had for the mo-
'ment been victorious as well asthatwhlch
had momentarily been defeated. The
death knell of the republic had rung as
soon as the active power became lodged
In the hands of those who sought, not
to do justice to all citizens rich and poor
alike, but to stand for one special class
and for Its interests as opposed to the
Interests of others.
"The reason why our future is assured
lies In the fact that our people are
genuinely skilled in and fitted for self
government and therefore will spurn the
leadership-of those: who seek to excite
this ferocious and foolish class antagon
ism. The average American knows not
only that he himself Intends to do about
what is right, but that his average fellow-countryman
has the Kime Intention
and the same power to make his Inten
tion effective. He knows, whether he be
business man, professional man, farmer.
mechanic, employer, or wage-worker, that
tne weiiare or eacn or tnese men is bound
up with the welfare of all the others;
that each Is neighbor to the other, is
actuated by the same hopes and fears, has
fundamentally the same Ideals, and that
all alike have much the same virtues
and the same faults. Our average fellow
cltlzcn Is a sane and healthy man, who
believes in decency and has a wholesome
mind. He therefore feels an equal scorn
alike for the man of wealth guilty of the
mean and base spirit of arrogance toward
those who'are less well off, and for the
man of small means who in his turn either
feels, or seeks to excite In- others the
feeling of mean and base envy for those
who are better off. The two feelings,
envy and arrogance, are but opposite
sides of the same shield, but different de
velopments of tho same spirit.' Funda
mentally, the unscrupulous rich man who
seeks to exploit and oppress those who
are less well off Is In spirit not opposed
to, but Identical with, the unscrupulous
poor man who desires to plunder and
oppress those tyIkk are better off. The
courtier and the demagogue are but de
velopments of the same type under dif
ferent conditions, each manifesting the
i same servile spirit, the same deslro to
rise by pandering to base passions; though
one panders to power in the shape of a
single man and the other to power in
the shape of a multitude. So likewise
the man who wishes to ripe by wronging
others must by right be contrasted, not
with the man who likewise wishes to do
wrong, though to a different set of peo
ple, but with tho man who wishes to do
justice to all people and to wrong none.
Tile Good and the Bad. Citizen.
'The line of cleavage between good and
bad citlzenihip lies, not between the
man of wealth who acts squarely by his
fellows and the man who seeks each
day's 'wage by that day's work, wrong
ing no one and .doing his duty by his
neighbor; nor yet does this line of
cleavage divide the unscrupulous wealthy
man who, exploits others in his own in
terests, from, the demagogue, or from the
sullen and envious being who wishes to
attack all men of property, whether they
do well or 11L On the contrary, the line
of cleavage between good citizenship
and bad citizenship separates the
rich man who does well from the
rich man who does ill, the poor "man qf
good conduct from the poor man of bad
conduct. This line of cleavage lies, at
right angles to any such arbitrary line
of division as that separating one class
from another, one locality from another,
or men with a certain degree of property
from those of a less degree of property.
"The goocf citizen is the man who, what
ever his wealth or his. poverty, strives
manfully to do his duty to himself, to
his family, to his neighbor, to the state;
who is incapable of the baseness which
manifests Itself either in arrogance or In
envy, but who while demanding justice
for himself is no less scrupulous to do
justice to others. It is. because the aver
age American citizen, rich or poor, is of
Just this type that we have causo tor our
profound faith in the future of the re?
"Ours is a government of liberty, by,
through and under the law. Lawlessness
and connivance at lawbreaklng whether
the lawbreaklng take the form of a crime
of greed and cunning or of a crime of vio
lenceare destructive not only of order,
but of the true liberties which can only
come through order. If alive to their true
interests rich and poor alike will set their
faces like Hint against tho spirit which
seeks personal advantage by overriding
the laws, without regard to whether this
spirit showB itself in the form of bodily
violence by one set of men or in the form
of vulpine cunning by another set of
ITatchvrords for All.
"Let the watchwords of all our people be
the .old familiar watchwords of honesty,
decency, fair dealing and common sense.
Tho qualities denoted by these words are
essential to all of us, as we deal with tho
complex Industrial problems of today, the
problems affecting not merely the accumu
lation but even more" the wise distribution
of wealth. We ask no man's permission
when we require -him to obey the law;
neither the permission of the poor man nor
yet of the rich man. Least of all can the
man of great wealth afford to break the
law, even for his own financial advantage,
for the law Is his prop and -support, and It
Is both foolish and profoundly unpatriotic
for him to fall In giving hearty support to
those who show that there is in fact one
law, and one law only, alike for the rich
and the poor, for the great and the small.
"Men sincerely Interested in the due
protection of property, and men sincerely
interested lii seeing that the just rights of
labor are guaranteed, should alike remem
ber not only that in the long run .neither
the capitalist nor tho wageworker can be
helped In healthy fashion save by helping
the -other; but also that to require either
side to obey the law and do its full duty
toward the community is emphatically to
that side's real interest.
"There is no worse enemy of the wage
worker than the man who condones mob
violence In any shape or who preaches
class hatred; and surely the slightest ac
quaintance with our Industrial history
should teach even the most shortsighted
that the times of most suffering for our
people as a Vhole, the times when busi
ness is stagnant, and capital suffers from
shrinkage and gets no return from its
investments, are exactly the times of
hardship and want and ' grim disaster
among the poor. If all the existing Instru
mentalities of wealtH could be abolished,
tho first arid severest suffering would
come among those of uswho are least
well off at present. The wageworker Is
welj off only when the rest of the country
Is well off; and he can best contribute to
this general well being by showing sanity
and a firm purpose to do justice to others.
Stand Capitalists Should Take.
"In his turn the capitalist who is really
a conservative, the man who has fore
thought as well as patriotism, should
heartily welcome every effort, legislative
or otherwise, which has for Its object to
secure fair dealing by capital, corporate
or individual, toward the public and
toward tho employe. Such laws as the
franchise tax law in this state, which the
Court of Appeals recently unanimously
decided constitutional such a law as that
passed in Congress last year for the pur
pose of establishing a Department of
Commerce and Labor, under which there
should be a bureau to oversee and secure
publicity from the great corporations
which do an Interstate business such a
law as that passed at the same time for
the regulation of the great highways of
commerce so as to keep these roads clear
on fair terms to all producers In getting
their goods to market these laws are In
the Interest not merely of the people as
a whole, but of the propertied classes.
For in no way Is the stability of property
better assured than by making It patent
to our people that property bears Its
proper share of the burdens of the state;
that property is handled not only In the
Interest of tho owner, but In the interest
of the whole community.
"In other words, legislation to be per
manently good for any class must also be
good for the Nation as a wholo, and legis
lation which does injustice to any class Is
certain to work harm to the Nation.
Take our currency system for example.
This Nation is on a gold basis. The
treasury of the public Is in excellent condi
tion. Never before has the per capita or
circulation been as large as it is this day;
and this circulation, moreover. Is of money
every dollar of which Is at par with gold.
Now, our having this sound currency sys
tem Is of benefit to banks, of course, but
it is of Infinitely more benefit to the peo
ple as a whole, because of the healthy
effect on business conditions.
"In the same way, whatever is advisa
ble in the way of remedial or corrective
currency legislation and nothing revolu
tionary Is advisable under present condi
tionsmust be undertaken only from the
standpoint of the business community as
a whole, that Is, of the American body
politic as a whole. Whatever Is done, we
cannot afford to take any step, backward
or to cast any doubt upon the certain re
demption In standard coin of every circu
lating note.
"Among ourselves we differ in many
qualities, of body, head and heart; we are
unequally developed, mentally as well as
physically. But each of us has the right
to ask that he shall be protected from
wrongdoing as he does his work and car
ries his burden through life. No man
needs sympathy because he has to work,
because he has a burden to carry. Far
and away the best prize that life offers Is
the chance to work hard at work worth
doing; and this Is a prize open to every
man, for there can be no work better
worth dojng than that done to keep in
health and comfort and with reasonable
advantages those Immediately dependent
upon the husband, the father or the son.
America Has No Place lor the Idler.
"There is no room in our healthy
American life for the mere Idler, for the
man or the woman whose object It is
throughout life to shirk the duties which
life ought to t bring. Life can mean
nothing worth meaning, unless Its prime
aim Is the doing of duty, the achievement
of results worth achieving. A recent
writer has finely said: 'After all, the sad
dest thing that'ean happen to a man Is to
carry no burdens. To be -bent under too
great a load Is bad; to be crushed by it Is
lamentable; but even in that there are
"possibilities that are glorious. But to
carry no load at all there is nothing in
that. No one seems to -arrive, at any goal
really worth reaching In this world who
does not come to it heavy laden.'
"Surely from our own experience each
one of us knows that this Is true. From
the greatest to the smallest, happiness
and usefulness are largely found In the
same soul, and the joy of life is won in its
deepest and truest sense only by those
who have not shirked life's burdens. The
men whom we most delight to honor In all
this land are those who, in the Iron years
from '61 to '65 bore on their shoulders the
burden of saving the Union. They did
not choose the easy task. They did not
shirk the difficult duty. Deliberately and
of their own- free will they strove for an
Ideal, upward and onward acros3 the
stony slopes of greatness. They did the
hardest work that was then to be done;
they bore the heaviest burden that any
generation of Americans ever had to bear;
and because they did thi3 they have won
such proud Joy as it has fallen to the lot
of no other men to win, and have written
their names forevermore on the golden
honor roll of the Nation.
"As it is with the soldier, so it is with
the civilian. To win success In the busi
ness world, to become a first-class me
chanic, a- successful farmer, an able law
yer or doctor, means thafe-the man has de
voted his best energy and power through
long years -to the achievement of his ends.
So it is in the life of the f atpily, upon
whiclr In the last analysis the whole wel
fare of s the Nation rests. The man . or
woman who as breadwinner and home
maker, or as wlf and mother, has done
all, that he or she can do, patiently and
uncomplainingly, Is to be honored; and Is
to be envied by all those who have never
had' the good fortune to feel the need and
duty of doing such work. Tho woman
who has borne, arid who has reared, as
they should be reared, a family of chil
dren, has In the most emphatic manner
deserved well of thoTepublic Her "burden
has been heavy, and she has been able to
bear it worthily only by the possession of
resolution, of good sense, of conscience
and of unselfishness. But If she has Borne
it well, then to her shall come the su
preme blessing, for In the words of the
oldest and greatest of books, 'Her chil
dren shall rise up and call her blessed';
and among the benefactors of the land her
place must be with those who have done
the best and the hardest work, whether
as lawgivers or as soldiers, whether in
public or In private life.
Virtncs That Connt for the Future.
"Thl3 is not a soft and easy creed to
preach. It Is a creed willingly learned
only by -men and women who,, together
with the softer virtues possess also tho
stronger; who can do, and dare, and die
at need, but who while life lasts will
never flinch from their allotted task. Tou
farmers, and wageworkers, and business
men of this great state, of this mighty
and wonderful Nation, are gathered to
gether today, proud of your state and
still prouder of your Nation, because your
forefathers and predecessors have lived
up to Just this creed. You have received
from their hands a great Inheritance, and
you will leave an even greater Inheritance
to your children and your children's chil
dren, provided only that you practice alike
In your private and your public lives the
strong virtues that have given us as a
people greatness in the past.
"It is not enough -to be well-meaning
and kindly, but Weak; neither is It enough
to be strong, unless morality and decency
go hand In hand with strength. We must
possess the qualities which make us do
our duty in our- homes and among our
neighbors, and in addition we must pos
sess tho qualities which are Indispensable
to themake-up of every great and mas
terful nation the qualities of courage and
hardihood, of Individual initiative and yet
of power to combine for a common' end,
and above all, the resolute determination
. to permit no man and -no set of men to
sunder us one from the other by lines of
caste or creed or section.
"We must act upon the motto of all for

International Yacht Races the Text
of a Jersey City Pastor. x
NEW YORK, SeptT7. Finding spiritual
lessons in International yacht racing,
the Rev. John L. Scudder of the First
Congregational Church, Jersey City, says,
in the course of a sermon on the subject:
"The bible has much to say about
racing, and it is evident St. Paul was
familiar with the field and the arena,
for his epistle abounds with references
to foot races, boxing matches and gladia
torial contests. In appealing to this
racing instinct the bible touches
sympathetic chords in every breast, for
tho desire to demonstrate one's superiori
ty over others is universal.
VThese repeated yacht races between
England and America conducted in such
