The addresses "were made from a bal

and the audience gathered In tho streets.
The intersection of Tenth and G streets.
Northwest Washlngttm, was packed with
people and the crowd extended fully a
square north, south, east and west from
the rectory. Dr. Stafford in his opening
remarks referred to the fact that in the
century and more the St Patrick's
Church had worked in "Washington no
honor bad come to it so great as the
visit of President Roosevelt
Greeted With Many Cheers.
The Knights of Columbus formed a
guard of honor for the President hut a
scmad of policemen was necessary to open
the way through the crowded streets.
Cheer after cheer went up as the Presi
dent and his escort appeared. As bo
passed into the reoiprr. a -child's choir i
of aub voices stationed In the front of the :
church sang hymns.
Before the ceremony was begun tho

the demonstration doubling when Card
inal Gibbons took a place by tho Presi
dent's side and invited him to be seated.
Dr. Stafford, the first speaker, told of

growth and its aim for the future. He

Dr. Stafford then introduced President
Roosevelt "as the man of even-handed
Justice, the President of the 'square
deal.' " President Roosevelt thanked tho
rector and Joined in the laugh which pre
ceded prolonged cheering. Then he spoke
Address by the President.
"Cardinal Gibbons, Father Stafford and
you, my fellow-Americans It is a great
pleasure to me to be present with you
today to assist at tho dedication of the
school, hall and rectory of this parish a
parish whose 110th anniversary we also
now celebrate, for this parish was founded
six years before this capital was placed
ln the present District of Columbia.
(Cheers.) I am glad, indeed, to have been
Introduced by Cardinal Gibbons to you,
the spiritual representative, in a peculiar
sense, to that Bishop Carroll who played
so illustrious a part in the affairs of the
church and whoso klnfolk played so il
lustrious a part in the affairs of the Na
tion at the dawning of this Government
In greethv all of you, I wish to say that
I am especially glad to see tho chtldren
"You know, I believe in children. I
want to see enough of them and of the
right kind. I 'wish today, in the very
brief remarks that I have made, to dwell
upon this thought the thought that ought
to be In the mind of every man and woman
here, the -thought that while in -this coun
try wo need wise laws, honestly and fear
lessly" executed, and while wo 'cannot af
ford to tolerate anything hut the highest
standard in the public service of the Gov
ernment yet that in tho last analysis
the future of the country must depend
upon -quality of tho Individual home, of
the individual man or woman In that
Future Depends on the Children.
"The future of this country depends up
on the way in which the average man
and the average woman in it does his or
her duty, and that very largely dipends
upon the way in which the average boy
or girl is brought up. Therefore, a great
responsibility rests upon those whoso Ufa
work it is to see to the spiritual welfare
of our people, and upon those who make it
their life work to try to train the citi
zens of the future so that they shall be
worthy of that future.
"In wishing you well today I wish you
well in doing the most important work
whicu is allotted to any of our people, to
do. The rules of good citizenship are
simple. The trouble is not In finding
them out but in living up to them after
they have been found out
"I think we all "know fairly well what
qualities they are which in their sum
make up the typo of character we like to
see in man or Woman,, son or daughter;
but I am afraid we do not always see
tbB. m well developed as we would like
to. I wish to see in the average Ameri
can citizen tho development of the two
sets of qualities which we can roughly !
indicate as sweetness and strength the
qualities on the one hand which make
the man able to hold his own, and those
which, on the other hand, make him
Jealous for the rights of others Just as
much as for his own rights.
SWeetnesa and Strength.
"We must have both sets of qualities.
In the first place, the man must have
the power to hold his own. You probably
know that I do not care very much for the
coward or the moral weakling. I want
each of you boys, and the girls Just as
much, and each of you young men and
young women, to have tho qualities with
out- which people may be amiable and
pleasant while things go well, but with
out which they cannot succeed in times
"I wish to see in the man, manliness; in
the woman, womanliness. I wish to see
courage, perseverance, the willingness to
face work, to face, you men, if It Is nec
essary, danger; the determination not to
shrink hack when temporarily beaten In
life, as each which now and then, but to
come again and wrest triumph from de
feat "I want to see you men strong men
and brave men, and, in addition, I wish
to sec each man of you feel this strength
and this courage, but make him the
worse unless to that strength and courage
are joined the qualities of tenderness
toward those who are dependent upon him
and of right dealing with all his neigh
bors. Successes in American Life.
"Finally, I want to congratulate all of
us here on certain successes that we havo
achieved in tho century and a quarter
that has gone by of our American life.
We have difficulties enough and we are
a long way short of perfection. I do not
see any immediate danger of our growing
too good; there Is ample room, for effort
yet left But we have achieved certain
results and we have succeeded in a meas
ure in realizing certain ideals.
"We have grown to accept it an axiom
atic truth of our American lifo that the
man Is to be treated on his worth as a
man, without regard to the accidents of
his position; that this is not a Government
designed to favor the rich man as such
or the poor as such, but that it is de
signed to favor every American, rich or
poor, if he is a decent man, who acts
fairly by his fellows.
Room for All Creeds.
"We' havo grown to realize that part
of the foundations upon which our liberty
rests as the right of each man to worship
his Creator according to the dictates of
his conscience, and the duty of each man
to respect his fellows who so worship him.
(Cheers and applause.) And, oh, my coun
trymen, one of the highest auguries for
the future of this country, for the fu
ture of this mighty and majestic Nation
of ours, lies in the fact that we "brothers
have grown to regard one another with
a broad and kindly charity and to realizo
that ths field for -human ewltuvor Ja
wide; that the field for charitable' phil
anthropy is large, work is wide, and
that- while a corner remains un
titled wo - do a -dreadful , wrong'
if we fall to welcome the work done In
that field by every man, no matter what
his creed, provided only he works with
a lofty sense of his duty to God and his
duty to his neighbor."
After a speech by Commissioner Mc
Fariand, tho choir sang "America" and
a number of hymns. Tho President joined
In tho sjnglng and tho audience was not
slow to follow. A number of young1 church
officials followed the President to his car
riage. He shook hands with them and
called -heartily as he drove away:
"Good-bye, boys. I am glad to have
been with you."

McMlnnville, Or.. Nor. 20. (Special.)
Liquor men are determined to contest the
validity of tho prohibition election where
by Yamhill County went "dry." The issue
raised will be that of irregularities at the
polls and of an Illegal election. Indications
are that the law will be thoroughly tested.
It will be set up that tho election was not

and that electors voted who were not entitled
to do 80.

that as the petition for the vote, on local op

Trickery, Says Mr. Amos.
L H. Amos, chairman, of the stato pro
hibition committee, was surprised last
night to hear that the County Court of
Gilliam has declared the prohibition elec
tion of no effect He suspected trickery
on the part of tho liquor forces and de
clared that such practices would surely
militate against them.
"Let 'em go ahead," exclaimed the big
chief of the cold-water people spiritedly.
"They only damage the liquor cause In'
the enft. No question about it In the
world. "We expect to meet with tempo
rary reverses, but we shall not be de
terred from our goal the subjugation of
liquor In this country. "We are going to
get there, too, and It won't profit' anybody
to play tricks on us.

"It was hazy at the time and the cap
tain of the Sicilian Prince was steering
a northeasterly course."
His only explanation, of the vessel
being so close in shore is what he
learned from some of the crew of the
ship, who said that Captain William
Hank, of the Prince liner, saw the
Sandy Hook light and mistook it for
the Barnegat light on the Jersey Coast.
The steamer grounded so easily that
few of the passengers knew of the
ship's predicament until daylight.
