President Roosevelt Speaks on
His Place in National
Life. - -
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.

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

gan his address. He spoke for about 30
minutes. . .

that It might serve as a lesion for the gen

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

that this country is under to the educators,

methods, let us not forget that there are
certain qualities which are not new. which

nation. You had. In the first place", the right

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

After the a'ddrcss Bishop McDonnell
delivered the benediction and the Presi

to the roiewinjr stand. There the Pres

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:

Morton Will Become President
of New York Subway.
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.

on board the Almaz to learn news of the
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..

About What You Eat.
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
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.
Visitors are shown freely through the
works and, can follow the steps of mak
ing Grape-Nuts' from the grain to the
finished product. The proportions, of
different kinds of flour, and the tem
peratures are not disclosed and it seems
Impossible for others to steal these
secrets of the makers. But purity,
cleanliness and skill are shown In every
corner of the Immense pure food fac
tories. People who care Tor results from
choicely selected faod. those who "want
the food to rebuild the soft gray sub
stance In brain and nerves that give the

why the imitators who try to copy the
announcements about Grape-Nuts have
failed in he past.
