SOLDIER US I EXAMPLE President Roosevelt Speaks on His Place in National Life. - - READY TO FIGHT FOR RIGHT Memorial Day Address at "Unveiling of Slocum's Statue' Need of PreparationHoFight and ' of Good- Xavy. XCT' YORK, May 30. In a stirrins ad dress delivered at the unveiling of a bis statue of General Henry VW. Slocum, in Brpoklyn today. President Roosevelt ,paid a splendid tribute to the njen who com posed the Northern armies, but did not forget those of the Southern hosts. Most notable in his speech was an expression of his hope that, as tbe Nation increased In strength, there would come a corre sponding increase in its sense of responsi bility which would prevent its people from either injuring or insulting other people; his declaration that the surest way for a nation to invite disaster is to be opulent, aggressive and unarmed. Significant, in the light of recent events, was his assertion that "if our Navy is good enough, we have a long career of pcatc and prosperity before us, and the only likelihood of trouble ever com ing to us as a Nation will arise if we let our Navy become too small or Inefficient. A first-class .Navy, first-class, in point of size, above all first-class In point of efficiency 'of theTlridividual units, active as units and In combination. Is the surest and cheapest guarantee of peace. I should think that any man looking at what has .happened abroad and In our his tory during the past few years must be indeed blind If he cannot read that les son clearly." The President was in New York City five hours, but during? that-time did not put his foot in Manhattan, passing around the island in a ferryboat to the Brooklyn side of the East River, and after the exercises returned in the same fashion. The entire trip was without unhappy in- clients. The President arrived In Jersey City at 7:0S A. M.. and was met by a committee of the Union League Club. He traveled in a special car attached to a regular train on the Pennsylvania road. HeV was accompanied only by Secretary Loeft and Dr. Stokes. Alio Jtii L. uuaiui;u iv1 Brooklyn. There the party was met by troop C and escorted to the Union League clubrooms. Along the route flags were flying and thousands of people lined the streets. Mr. Roosevelt was constantly acknowledging the enthusiastic reception ndered Jilm. - Thousands 6f people were in waiting .at the depot, but they had only glimpses of the President. Breakfast was served to a .party of 100, f ter which there was a brief reception. On leaving the Union League Club the President proceeded between cheering lines of people to the Plaza, where the great bronze statue of General Slocum by McMonnics was to be unveiled. Two great stands facing the statue w.ere filled with people. The . arrival, of the Presidential party was signaled by the first of a salute of 21 guns. Mayor McClellan greet ed the President cordially and the crowd gave him an ovation. The crowds burst Into cheers as -G'enerai Daniel E. Sickles, who fought with General Slocum, walked en crutches toward the unveiling plat firm". The General had to bo lifted al most bodily up- the Steps. The exercises at the unveiling began with .an. invocation by the Right Rever end Frederick Burgess, Episcopal bishop cf Long'Island."1 Th."c- statue d.t General Slocum was unveiled by Gertrude. Slo tum. the-;47-year-oJd granddaughter of General Slocum, anild'-the. cheers of thousands. A salute of 13 guns was fired as Miss Slocum drew aside .the- flags which veiled .'the statue. The -presentation of the statue was made by Park Commissfoher Mike J. Kennedy, who offered It to Mayor McClellan. " ' In accepting the statue Mayor Mc Clellan made reference . to ' President Roosevelt's own service as a soldier and said that It was fitting that the Chief Magistrate of the country, "himself a gallant soldier," . should be present at the unveiling of a .statue to one of the Na tion's greatest heroes. The crowds 'rose and stood bareheaded while the . band played "The Star Spangled Banner" -after the Mayor had concluded - Ms' speech. As the last (note cf the hynin""dfed away the President be gan his address. He spoke for about 30 minutes. . . Victory, tjjr 7tlRhteoune5.

(Applause.) Think or It, my fellow-countrymen! Think of what a thrice-blessed fortune has been ours that the greatest war that the 18th century aw after the close of the Napoleonic struggles should have left, not as most wars Inevitably do and must leave, memories of bitterness, dishonor and sham to offset the memories of glory, memories which make the raep on one side hang their heads, but which have not left that, but have left to the victors and van quished alike, after the temporary soreness Is over, the same right to feel the proudest satisfaction in the fact that the Union was saved, and the greatest pride in the honor, the gallantry, the devotion to the right, as each side had given It the right to see, the right done alike by those who -overcame as victors and those who finally went down in defeat. (Applause.) Brave Soldier. Good Citizen. . I congratulate the people of Brooklyn, not primarily-upon raising this statue, because they ought to. but upon the opportunity, upon the chance of having it to raise. (Ap plause.)

(Applause.) And. my fellow-cltixens. I am sure we all realize the peculiar appropriateness of having the statue of General Slocum received on behalf of the City" of New York by Its chief magistrate, whose father was General Slocum's illus trious colleague. (Applause.) Surely there Is need for me to say but lit tle in -emphasis of what has been set forth before I begin to speak of the prim gnltt cance of General Slocum's career. He was it great solder, a most gallant and able com mander. Once the war was over, he turned as -whole-heartedly to the pursuits of peace as he had during the war turned to the strife of arms. He was one of those men on whose career we can dwell in its en tirety. "We don't have to dwell with em phasis on part of it because we do not care to speak of another part. We are able to point to General Slocum a that type of what a decent American cltlren should be. as a man who wai an example In his family In life, an example in his buflncKi'relations. honest and upright public servant, no less than a fearless and able soldier. Must Fight When Need Come. Now 1 want all you people to remember that two eides'of ' the lesson are taught by General Slocum's life. A successful war for unrighteousness is the most 'dreadful of all things; it is the thing that sets back more than aught else the course of civilization. But no people worth preserving ever existed nor will exist that was not able to fight if the need arose. (Applause). And jso with tb,e individual. The man who possesses great ability and great courage unaccompanied by a moral sense, a courage and ability un guided by-the stern purpose to do what Is Just and upright: that man is rendered by the fact of having the courage and the abil ity only so much the greater menace to the community in which he unfortunately dwells. (Loud applause.) We cannot afford as a people ever to for get for one moment that ability, farsighted ness, Iron resolution, perseverance, willing ness to do and dare, are qualities to be ad mired only If they are put at the service of the right, at the service of decency and Jus tice. (Applause.) The man who possesses those qualities and. does not shape his course by a fundamental and unwavering -moral principle is a menace to each and all of ua; and thrice foolish, thrice wicked is -the-other man who condonee his moral shortcomings for hla Intellectual or physical strength and prow ess. (Applause.) That Is' one side. Tte 'otlfcr side Is that no amount of good Inten tion, no amount of sweetness In- life, no amount of appreciation of decency, avail in the least degree -in the rough work of the world aa we find it. unless back of the hon esty of purpose, back of the decency of life and thought. He." the power that makes a man. (Applause.) Refcpect Other Nations. It is true of the Individual and It is true of the Nation. It Is to the last degree desirable. I will put it stronger than that It ! abso lutely essential that this Nation, If it la t: hold the position in the future that it has. held in the past, must act not only within but without Its own borders in a spirit of Juitlce and of large generosity toward all other peo ples. (Apnlauee.) We owe an obligation to ourselvea, we owe those obligations to all mankind. More and more as we increane in strength I hope to rt i. corresponding Increase In the eober aense of responsibility which shall prevent us either Injuring or insulting any other people. , You may notice that I say "insulting" aa well as "injuring.' If there i one quality some times shown among w which is not com mendable, it is a habit of speaking loosely about foreign powers, foreign .races. You do not need, any of you, to be told that in pri vate lite you will reent an insult quite as much as an injury, and our public writers need to keep steadily before their minds the thought that no possible good can come to us by epeaking offensively of anyone elae. (Ap plause), and trouble may come. The surest way for a Nation to invite disas ter is to be opulent, aggressive and unarmea. (Laughter and applause.) Now we are opu lent, and I hope we will remain, so. I trust that we shall never be aggressive units ag gression Is not merely Justified, .but demand ed. (Applause.) Demanded either by cur own respect but by the interests of mankind, and, finally, remember that to be aggressive, above all, to be aggressive In speech and not to be armed. Invites not merely disaster, but the ccntempt of mankind. (Applause.) Need of FIratrClaM Navy. Brooklyn not only furnished valiant oldlers to the. civil War. bwt U furnished In times of peace a most excelleat Secretary ol the Navy (pointing to General Tracy, on the plat form) (applause.) If our navy Is good enough we have a long career of peace before us (ap plause), and the only likelihood of trouble ever coming to us as a Nation will arise if we let our navy become too small or inef ficient. (Applause.) A first-class navy, first class in point of aixe. above all first-class ' In point of etfl- f ciency of the individual unlta acting aa units and in combination, is the surest and the cheapest guarantee of peace; and I should think that any man looking at what is hap pening and what has happened abroad and in our own history during' the past few years must be Indeed blind if he cannot read the lesson clearly. Character Makes Mea aad Nations. And General Slocum did his first great pub lic service when the crisis called not pri marily for the softer and milder, but for the sterner and- harder virtues; and we cannot afford In this day of material luxury. In this day when civilization tends to make life easy, we cannot afford to Ignore those hard and stern virtues. In the work-a-day world as It Is, not only In war but in private life, and in public life alike, a man has to have the strength of fiber or he cannot put into effect even the best of his efforts, and he cannot afford to: let th generation that is coming up grow up with the feeling that any quality will serve as a substitute for the old and essential quality of manliness in a man and womanliness In a woman, TApplause.) Much, very- much, has been done In .this country by education. Xo one can overstate the debt that this country is under to the educators, but In taking; advantage of all the improved methods, let us not forget that there are certain qualities which are not new. which ar$ eternal because they are eternally true, and the failure to develop which will cause a loss which cannot be offset by any merely Intellectual and mental gain. A sound body is a first-class thing, a sound mind is an even better thing, but th thing that counts for most In the individual as In the nation is character (Applause), the sum of those WAR TO DATE MONEY STENT BY JAPAN.

And you men of the Civil War. you men to whom this country owes, more thaw to any others, no matter how great the services of -those1 others may be. because to you this country' owes Its life, you won the place you did. you won for this country Its salvation, because you had in you those qualities -which In their aggregate we know by the name of character, the qualities which made you to put material gains, material Wcllbelng. not merely below but Insignificant as compared to thing that were greater than when the crisis called for showing your manhood. You went to the war. leaving those behind who could make more money, who could rise In the world, but carrying with you In your hearts the honor and the future of a mighty nation. You had. In the first place", the right spirit and then you had the quality of mak ing that spirit evident in the time of need. If you had not had patriotism, devotion to the country and the flag, you could have done nothing. You could not have dohe much more If your . patriotism and your devotion to the flag had not been backed up by a willingness to stay put in battle. (Applause.) You showed In times that tried men's souls what this country has a right to expect from Its son. You had the supreme good for tune of testlngyonr manhood In one of the two great crlse of the Nation's history, the great crisis In which the Nation was born lnr the days of 1770 and the no le-s -great crisis In which the Nation was saved by the men or 1P61. (Applause.) You have left us not merely a reunited country, but you have left tw the glorious heritage of the memory of the exploits of the qualities, by which the country wab left reunited. Our days have fallen, for us good fortune. In times of peace. We have not had to rhow the qualities that you showed In the dark years that closed In the sunbuist of Appommatox, but. if we are to leave un dlmmed to our children the heritage that you left us. we must show In pcaoe and, should the need ever arise In war. also the quali ties that you chowed. the qualities that make It now the pleasantest of all tanks for a pub lic servant who appreciates the greatness of America to come on an occasion like thla and fee the people of a great city dedicate a monument In honor of a great citizen, who at every point of his career illustrated what the name American should be when It If used In the sense of Its highest, its deepest and Its best significance. Speech to Men of Xnvy. After the a'ddrcss Bishop McDonnell delivered the benediction and the Presi dent and party walked across the street to the roiewinjr stand. There the Pres ident and Mayor and officials reviewed the Grand Aarmy parade and then they made a hurried dash to the Naval Young: Men's Christian Association. A rapid in spection of the building was made, and then the President delivered a 20-mInutc address. The President said: Officer and enllrted men of the United States Navy, and you, friends of the Navy, for If you are good Americans, you are noth ing eUe I made up my mind today, though many Invitations were extended to me. that 1 could not refa to come to this building and meet you here. I don't have to tell you that I believe with all my ' heart In the Navy of the United State, and I believe in what counts most In this Navy the officers and enlisted men. the man behind the gun, the man In the engine-room, the man In the con ning tower, the man. wherever he Is. who la doing his duty. Too much cannot be said to Impress on you the all-Important work you are doing. Even If you never go into battle, you create a spirit that makes those coming after 'you feel able to d their duty. The time of peace la the time to make ready for war. I do not think we will have any war if we have a good enough Navy- Every first-class record you make at target - practice Is a positive provo cation to rcace. The sailors cheered the President as he finished his speech. He hastened to board a ferry-boat for Jersey City.

WILL RESIGN FROM CABINET Secretary of Xavy Ends Trouble Caused- by Santa Fe Rebates by Securing Job With Same Salary as Jloosevclt. WASHINGTON. May 30.-(SpeciaI.) Secretary bf the Navy Paul Morton, whose intent to resign from the Cabinet was announced recently, will become president of the New York subway sys tem at a salary equal to that of the President of the United States. He will remove tj New York City and assume control of the subway transportation as soon. as President Roosevelt releases him and appoints his successor. Mr. Morton has considered a number of flattering offers from railroads, cor porations and commercial enterprises since the certainty of his withdrawal from the Cabinet became known. Rumora of his acceptance of various positions have been circulated, but all proved un true up to today, when it was announced authoritatively that he had accepted the Presidency of the subway at a salary of $50,000 a year and with a contract for a Ions term of years. .May Retire Before July. It has long been understood that Presi dent Roosevelt would permit Mr. Morton to retire from the head of the Navy De partment this Summer. He Is anxious to withdraw from public life. and. al though the President wishes to retain his valuable services as long as possible, he will not permit his personal prefer ence to stand In Mr. Morton's way. He probably will name a new Secretary of the Navy before the end of June, and then Mr. Morton will be free to enter on his new work immediately. nebate Case Xot the Cause. While both Mr. ilorton and President Roosevelt have suffered considerable em barrassment over the Secretary's former connection with the Santa Fe, which road now Is the subject of Federal Inquiry, It has been denied that this had anything to do with the retirement. Mr. Morton was with the Santa Fc when the al leged rebates to shippers were given, and the Investigation of these has been the President's first big move In his railway rate fight. SURVIVORS OF ARMADA. (Continued from Plrt Paze.) on board the Almaz to learn news of the fighting. The story was short. According to the officers of the Almaz. "the. fleet under Ro-. Jestvenaky met the Japanese In the Strait of Corea, near Tsit Island, and thd oppos ing fleets Immediately closed in. Being lightly armored, the Almaz had been or dered by Admiral Rojcstvensky before tho battle to separate from the fleet at the first opportunity, and it headed for Vladi vostok soon after the commencement of the action, but not too soon to observe that the losses on both sides in the Titanic combat were great. Early in tiio battle an officer of the Almaz. while watching Rojestvensky's flagship, the battleship Knlaz Souvaroff. for a signal, saw the flagship shudder from stem to stern, as If under a blow from a giant hammer, and hesitate In her course, while the wave3 rose high from her armored sides. Then she com menced to list and sink. The officers believe that the debut of the submarine boat as an effective agent in naval warfare, or perhaps a large mine, caused the disaster to the Knlaz Souvaroff. The damage, however, was so extensive that the flagship soon went down, leaving the deck officers and many of the crew struggling in the waves. One of the Russian torpedo-boats, cither the destroyer Bulny or the Bravi. ran in and picked up a number of the swimmers, one of whom was recognized through a flash as Admiral Rojestvcnsky. Under a gruelling attack by the Japan ese warships, aided by torpedo-boats, mines and submarines, the Borodino, Os Uabla and Orel were placed out of action and followed the flagship to the bottom. Japanese Ships Sank in Fop. The fog. which had risen and lowered Intermittently during the morning, began to sejtle down again, and the distance of the Almaz, .which had now succeeded In disengaging herself In the combat from the struggling ships, made it difficult for her to see clearly, but the officers are positive that they saw two Japanese bat tleships disappear beneath the sea before their eyes, and that two Japanese cruis ers appeared on the point of sinking. The arrival of the Grozcny at 11 o'clock today was marked by the same scenes of excitement as those which characterized the advent of the Almaz. The correspondent of the Associated Press visited the wounded commander of the destroyer. Captain Andriffsky, at the hospital, and the Captain confirmed the details given by the officers of the Almaz. He described his combat as a running fight, in which the Grozeiy was engaged for several hours, finally sinking the pur suing Japanese destroyer..

When it comes to food, demand to know the facts about what goes into your stomach. Not only that it Is pure but that you are not deceived In the description of Its contents and conditions. Some flaked breakfast foods that have thus far failed, are now being advertised in close Imita tion of the Grape-Nuts advertising, thinking In that way to finally make a success of the failure. But false statements of the merits of human food will never on earth build up a business. These flaked food are not pre-dlgested. They are not fully cooked and the starch In them is starch still and lias not been turned to sugar as claimed. Chemical analysis tells the truth and the analysis of the famous chemists of the world show Grape-Nuts the only pre pared breakfast food in which the starch part of the wheat and barley has been transformed Into sugar and therefore ready for immediate digestion. Why is this true? All the thin rolled flake foods are made by soaking the grains of wheat or oats in water, then rolling, dry ing and packing. These operations do not cook or prc-digest the starch. Contrasted with this pretense, observe the care, method and skill in making Grape-Nuts. The barley Is soaked about one hun dred hours, then it Is slowly warmed for some days and sprouted, the 'dastase being developed and part of the starch turned to sugar, (and later on all of It), then the grains are baked and the sprouts stipped off. Then comes grinding, sift ing and mixing with the creamy colored flour made from white and maccaroni wheat. This mixture must be skilfully made in right proportions. This blended flour contains just the Ingredients de manded by Nature to rebuild the soft gray substance in the nerve centers and brain, but how to make the food easy to digest, that was the question. It certainly would not do to mix in drugs, for there is a certain failure sure to come to the person depending on drugs to digest food. They may do for a temporary expedient, but pure food and digestible food is the only final resort and safe way. So to change the remain ing starch part and prepare the other elements In this blended flour it is made up into massive loaves like bread, the inside being dark cream color and quite sticky to the touch. These loaves are sliced and again go through long cooking at certain temperatures. Then the rock hard slices are each one carefully In spected and ground ready for packing and use, having gone through 10 or 12 hours In the different operations. When finished, each little granule will show a sparkling -substance on Its surface. A magnifying glass will bring it out clearer and develop little pieces of pure dextrose sugar, not put on "or poured over" (as the head of a large sanitarium once stated in his paper, thus exposing his appalling Ignorance of food processes) but this sugar exudes from the Interior of each as the starch Is slowly turned to sugar in the process of manufacture. This kind of sugar is ex actly like what is found In the human in testines, provided the starch of the grains, potatoes, bread, rice, cake, etc., etc.. has been perfectly digested. But many are weak In that form of di gestion and yet need the starches, so Grape-Nuts supplies them . pre-dlgested and ready to go quickly Into the blood.
