OF NEW ORLEANS
Southern Metropolis Receives
Roosevelt With Bound
TUMULT CUTS OFF SPEECH
Fever-Del Ivcred City Shows Grati
tude for President's Sympathy.
He Speaks on Panama Ca
nal and Strong Navy.
NEW ORLEANS, Oct 26. At the end
of strenuous hours of varied entertain
ment In New Orleans, which brought
Ills exceptionally pleasant trip through
the South to a close. President Roose
velt, at 6:30 o'clock tonight, boarded
the lighthouse tender Magnolia and be
gan the first stage of his return Journey
to the National capital. No newspaper
reporters accompanied him, and he will
be out of touch with the world through
out the night, but daylight tomorrow is
expected to bring news of his success
ful transfer to the armored cruiser
TVcst Virginia, which lies at anchor off
the moutn of the river to receive him,
and of the beginning of the second
stage of the Journey. For four days he
will be absent from American soil,
which has never heretofore happened to
a President during his incumbency, but
by means of wireless telegraphy It is
promised that he will be seldom out of
communication with the shore.
The President's New Orleans recep
tion was a signal testimonial of popu
lar esteem and of grateful recognition
of the service which he has rendered
the city in her period of stross. New
Orleans today remembered not only
that the President had acted with
characteristic promptness when asked
to send Federal surgeons to take charge
of the fever struggle, but throughout
tne fight he sustained the people of the
stricken city with expressions of uh
falling sympathy. The densely-crowded
street?, the elaborate decorations, the
wild applause that greeted, him along
the whole route of the parade, the en-'
thusiasm with which his address to the
multitude in Lafayette Square was re
ceived and the remarkable demonstra
tion In his honor at the luncheon, were
outward manifestations of the spirit in
which the people welcomed him.
AToice Could Not Reach Crowd.
Probably for the first time in his
public career, the President was com
pelled to abandon a public address be
fore he got well started on It. It
was contemplated that the military and
civic parade should pass in review be
fore the President at the City Hall, but
the crowd which gathered at this point
was so tremendous that neither the
police nor the troops were able to
move It and the President, foreseeing a
possible catastrophe In the event of a
panic, finally gave up the attempt to
speak and left the platform. The crowd
Jammed St. Charles street from prop
erty line to property line all the way
from Poydras to Ninth street, and it
spread over Lafayette Square from St.
Charles to Camp street. Probably 50,000
people were gathered In and around the
stand from which the President was to
have delivered the address.
When the President decided to aban
don his effort, he shouted to the throng
in go home and be good citizens and
then disappeared into the Mayor's par
lors, well nigh exhausted. To those
about him he expressed himself as Im
mensely pleased with the demonstra
tion in his honor, which was far be
yond his expectations or the expecta
tions of the members of his party, nnd
said that the reception was the great
est that he had had since he started
ou his trip.
Tornado of Enthusiasm.
The demonstration at the luncheon was
scarcely less exuberant. When the Presi
dent entered the superbly decorated din
ing hall, the 623 banqueters row as one
man and gave way to frantic . cheers.
Every thought he uttered was the signal
for an extraordinary exhibition of en
thusiasm, and, as his speech dealt al
most entirely with local subjects and had
special reference to the light against
yellow fever, the banquet developed in
to an increasing oration.
An Immense crowd packed Gravier and
St. Charles street as- the dinner ended
and the appearance of the President on
his way to the river provoked thunder
ous applause. As the Magnolia left her
landing, a presidential salute was fired
and the indescribable din of the whistles
of the factories and river craft mingled
with the lusty cheering throng of peo
ple who had collected on the wharf.
Nowhere did the President fc the
slightest evidence of the existence of
any remnants of the fever. He saw on
every hand Immense gatherings of ap
parently contented people, and it may
reasonably be believed that he carried
away with him the Impression that,
however serious the visitation of disease
may have been, it is now little more
than a memory-Trip-
Along River Front,
At Harapan, 10 miles from New Or
leans, the Presidents car was switched
from the main track of the Illinois Cen
tral and carried over the Belt Line to
Stuyvesant docks, where the commodi
ous ocean-going Southern Pacific steam
er Comus awaited him. On board the
steamer were 400 of the leading men and
women of the city, representing the vari
ous committees connected with the re
ception On it also were Governor
Blanchard and his staff, brilliant In gold
lace; Dr. White, who fought the good
fight as the Governor's representative
against the fever, together with all his
surgeons in full uniform, officers of the
Army and Navy. Mayor Behrman and
leading Federal, state and city officials.
It was Just 9 o'clock when the train
ran into "the docks, and there was an
enthusiastic demonstration from the
steamer as the President passed from his
car and walked to the ship's side. On
behalf of the city. Mayor Behrman ex
tended a brief welcome, and the guest
was escorted by the Governor, the Mayor
and President Sanders, of the Progres
sive Union, to a point of vantage.
The Comus ran around the Crescent,
past South Port in view of the great
levees and the vast sugar fields, and
then a few miles above the city turned
and came slowly down along the whole
front of New Orleans, past banks lined
with 'people and with a rtirlll greeting
from steamers sirens and factory
whistles. The steamer ran beyond the
Immense new terminals at Port Chal
mette and then turned back to the city.
As the vessel neared the Harrison
street sheds, President Roosevelt looked
out upon a sea of people gathered on
the river-front to greet him. When the
boat landed he was escorted ashore and
into an open carriage drawn by four
The parade immediately got under way.
The Confederate Veterans held the right
of line, with the Sons of Veterans and the
Spanish, War Veterans following.
On the streets the scenes were almost
the same as" those during the carnival
season. Never before has New Orleans
been more elaborately decorated. The
flag of the Nation flew everywhere, and
the great crowds were most enthusiastic
In their welcome to the President.
Dense, Tumultuous Throng.
Long before the parade had neared the
City Hall, the people began to congregate
there, and such a dense. Immovable crowd
was never before seen in this city. They
paclfed Lafayette Square from Camp
street clear up to the City Hall, on St.
Charles street, and up and down SL
Charles street It was the same Jam Just
as far as eye could reach. Half a hun
dred policemen, mounted and on foot,"
labored for an hour to make a clear space
so that the President's carriage could
come up to the. City Hall, but it was im
possible, though many heads were
cracked in the effort and dozens of ob
streperous persons were thrown into Jail.
The moment the President was recog-
f nlzed a tumultuous cheer went up, and
the crowd, densely packed as It was,
surged forward and threatened to crush
In part of the grandstand.
The President realized that an accident
was imminent, and that. If the crowd was
not soon dispersed, there might be serious
trouble. He urged Mayor Behrman to In
troduce him. which was done simply,
though the Mayor's voice was drowned In
The President climbed upon the railing
before which he was to speak, supported
by the Mayor. He waved his hand to the
crowd and they broke forth with re
doubled vigor. He urged the crowd to
keep still and called their attention to
the fact that many women were caught
in the Jam and might be injured. Each
utterance of his evoked a cheer and wav
ing of handkerchiefs and parasols, and
then the President tried to deliver a short
speech. It was Impossible, and he real
ized the futility of It.
Speech That Was Not Finished.
"There seems to be two or three people
in the. streets." he started, when a voice
Interrupted with the question:
"Did you have this crowd at Little
"That's all right," answered the Presi
dent. "Stay right there now," he added,
addressing the crowd, which was beyond
control. The Mayor attempted to secure
silence, and the President began aagiir.
"My fellow-countrymen Give me a
chance," whereat there was a tumultuous
roar of applause, and a voice shouted:
"We gave you one, and we will give you
Again the President started:
"My fellow-countrymen I appreciate
more than I can say this greeting, and It
is beyond the power of any human being
to acknowledge It by speaking, for you
could not hear him. (Great applause.)
' "And now you have shown such extra
ordinary qualities' throughout this dread
ful Summer that I want you to show your
capacity for self-government (tumultuous
applause), and that means, don't Jam.
(Laughter and applause.)
"And I want the crowd I want you all
to open out. I am only going to wish you
well, and then I am going to go on. be
cause you can't possibly hear me. and you
already see me (great applause), and
that's all that's open to us."
Worn Out AVith Exertion.
There was a tumultuous roar from the
crowd as the President disappeared in
the Mayor's parlor. When he reached
there he said he was worn out, and that
he desired a short rest at his hotel.
. The ovation given the President
throughout the parade today surpassed
anything of the kind ever seen in New
There was scarcely a moment when the
President maintained his seat in the car
riage. For two miles he stood bowing on
either side to the cheering throng.
The only opportunity which the colored
citizens of New Orleans had to meet the
President was while the parade was pass
ing the Iroquois Club, and the President
stopped there to receive an engrossed ad
dress expressing the sentiments of the
colored people toward him. The Presi
dent made a short .speech In response.
After a short rest In his hotel, the
President held a series of receptions. The
first was to a group of Confederate vet
erans who presented to him a watch
charm of crossed Union and Confederate
flags as a souvenir of the trip. The sec
ond of the receptions was to a group of
Grand Army veterans.
Representatives from the various wom
en's associations had five minutes with
the President, during which Mrs. Behan.
of the Women's League, that was active
in the fever fight, pinned a badge of the
association used during the campaign on
the lapel of his coat.
One Continuous Oration.
The climax of the day's entertainment
was the luncheon which started shortly
after 3 o'clock and was prolonged 15 min
utes beyond the time set for it, as a re
sult of the continuous ovation given to
the President. The President sat beneath
the pelican flag, with Mayor Behrman on
one side of him and Governor Blanchard
on the other. Senators Foster and Mc
Enery and Congressmen Davey and
Meyer, Secretary Loeb, Surgeon-General
Rlxey, Dr. White, of the Marine Hospital
Service, and many of his aides, members
of the Army and Navy. Federal, state and
city officials and a large number of rep
resentative citizens were present. Gover
nor Blanchard extended welcome on be
half of the state. When the applause
that followed the toastmaster'a remarks
Introducing him had subsided, the Presi
dent said In part:
Speaks of Canal and Navy.
Gentlemen, aa you have greeted me no well,
you nave given me tho opportunity to Indulge
myself In a luxury. There have been mo
ments in the past when I was afraid of saying
how well I thought of the Senators and Rep
resentatives in the National Comer era from
Louisiana, for fear I might damage them.
Now I am emboldened by your generous
kindness and confidence to ay that it has
been indeed a pleasure to deal with LoulsJana'a
represcntativeB In the Senate and In the Lower
Houw of Congress, because, whenever I had
to do with a rreat Question of National Im
portance, I could go to them convinced that. If
I could show them it was really for thfl
good of the Nation, they would stand for If,
Now from the representative of Louisiana
I was sure of (rapport, whether it was a
question of building and keeping at a high
point of efficiency tho United States Navy
or whether it was a question of building the
Panama Canal. And. mind you, gentlemen,
the two Questions go together. One thing
that as rresldent of this country I won't do
Is to make a bluff that I can't make rood.
I don't Intend on behalf of the Nation to take
any position until I have carefully thought
out whether that position will be advantageous
to the Nation, but. If I take it, 1 am going
to keep it. Arid I am sure that you gentle
men know It has been an utter mistake to
think of me as a man desirous of seelnc this
Nation quarrelsome. I have, no respect either
inz the natloa or for the ln&Kldual that
brawls. I want to see this Nation do as the
individual men In the Nation who would rwpect
themelTes should do, scrupulously regardful
of the rlchls of others and honestly endeav
oring to avoid all cause of difficulty. But I
want, oa behalf of this Nation, the peace
that comes not to the coward who cringi for
"It, but the peace of the Just man armed, who
asks it as a right.
The Governor spoke of the Panama Canal.
It's a big work, and it Is a very big nation
that can do that kind of work. I expect
soon to " have a report from the Engineers
as to the exact nhape that work will take.
I will then be able to make mor definite
forcasta as to the time, but of this' I can
assure you, the work will be done well; it
will be done as speedily as possible, and It
wyi absolutely be dose.
At the ladles' entrance to the hotel the
first troop of cavalry and a mounted es
cort of rough riders were drawn up. SL
Charles and Gravier streets were packed.
"When the President appeared, he was
once more wildly cheered. From his open
carriage he gracefully acknowledged the
greeting. With his escort he was driven
down Canal street to the river. The bril
liant street was crowded with men. wom
en and children, and the President was
enthusiastically applauded all the way to
Canal street. He was quickly received on
board the Magnolia and the boat put off
from her landing and started down the
river amid the pandemonium of the cheer

Second, That its statement to the effect
that any duly accredited delegates to this
convention are In attendance upon the
Studebaker Hall railroad convention is
absurd and false. The delegates to this
convention are here in session, enthusi
astic In support of President Roosevelt's
declared policy, and dd not propose to
make any alliance or compromise with
the enemies of the people.
The convention then adjourned until to
Parry's Pica for Railroads.
At the Studebaker Hall convention, 433
delegates were placed on the roll-call. N.
W. McCloud, of Pennsylvania, was chosen
chairman, and G. K. Wendellng. of Cali
fornia, t)ne of the vice-presidents. D. M.
Parry, leader of the delegates, made a
speech, in which he said:
I refuse to believe that the Government
rate-making proposition reflects the real
sentiment of the great majority of the
shlppera of this country, for to my mind
to believe such a thing Is to assert that
the shippers have somblned their forces
for the purpose of tyrannizing over the
railroads and depriving railroad capital
from reaping the profits to which, under
the free Institutions of this country, it is
entitled. Rather do I prefer to believe
that this crusade to endow a political
commission with a Czar-like power to fir
the transportation rates Is what is popu
larly and very aptly termed a hot-air
movement, fathered In the main by pro
fessional political agitators and men who
liave private reasons of their own for
fighting the railroads. I believe that, as
the shippers come to consider this ques
tion, they are more and more inclined to
take the view that Government rate
making is an Impracticable and dangerous
scheme, and that at least It must be given
very earnest consideration before extend
ing It their support.
I am here to reflect the opinion of those
shippers who believe In carefully consid
ered action, and who also believe that
every Industry, including even the rail
road Industry, is entitled to fair treat
ment and the enjoyment of those rights
of property which are accorded to other
lndustrics7vaiark you. this is not saying
that the railroad Juiould not be made to
deal Justly with thtr-fWbllc and with other
business Interests, butUt is saying that,
as the manufacturers, he stockralsers
and other business interests expect to be
dealt justly with, so also should they be
ready to deal Justly with the railroad in
dustry. It is saying that to adopt the
Socialistic principle of government Inter
ference with the return on railroad cap
ital is but paving the way for the enlarge
ment of the rato principle to cover- prices
on the products of the farmer and manu
facturer. This Idea has been poo-hooed.
but as a matter of fact there is no argu
ment that can be asserted in favor of
Government rate-making that cannot be
made to apply with equal force to the
fixing of prices by the Government on all
To assert that capital invested In rail
roads shall be deprived of the right to
seek the hlgnest profit obtainable on the
market Is to concede that the profit on
all capital, howsoever it may be Invested,
mav be limited at the will of the Govern
ment. Grant the validity of the principle
of Government limitation of profits In
ne branch of industry, and you grant It
In all. and you cannot escape the conclu
sion that. It you favor Government rate
making, you abandon the principle of in
dividual freedom and private ownership
In capital, and align yourselves with the
Socialists, who Kould confiscate the re
turns on capital.
T confidently believe that all fair-minded
men. If they give due study to this ques
tion, will come to the conclusion that the
power to make rates should continue to
lodge where It Is. and that thereby the
general interests of the country will be
best subserved, the right of communities
to enjoy the advantages of population,
wealth and geographical location will be
respected; the less developed sections will
not be at the mercy of the more powerful
section., and rates will on the whole
gradually decline, while the service ren
dered by the carriers will develop in effi
ciency. After the speech an adjournment was
taken until tomorrow.

NEW YORK. Oct. 25. Ex-President
Grover Cleveland has written a letter to
Mayor George B. McClellan. In which he
endorse the latter's candidacy for re
election as Mayor of New York City, say
ing, among other things:
"I confess to a feeling of astonishment
when I see the evidences of rank hys
teria pervading a canvass which should
especially be characterized by sober
thoughtfulness. Questions of the most
far-reaching Importance seem to be
passed upon the city's voters', not so
much as. subjects demanding their seri
ous reflection and thorough information 1
as subjects furnishing opportunity for
appeals to passion and misinformation
cunningly Intended to aid personal ambL
tlons and unworthy purposes.
'"There are conditions Just now prevail
ing which naturally suggest this as a
favorable time for demogoglc manipula
tion of the people, and nowhere are these
conditions so Inviting those who are
willing to be demogogues as in the City
of New York. Every man who thinks
must know that the opportunity thus of
fered to play upon the unusually aroused
popular prejudices, resentments and pas
sions has n6t been overlooked and that
the constant stimulation of these things
constitutes the chief stock In trade of
some of those who are now bidding for
the people's support. Every thinking
man must also appreciate the fact that
there are principles and theories under
lying the pending municipal canvass
which vitally concern the city's future
"In these circumstances how plain be
comes the duty of every voter who has
the welfare of your great municipality at
heart to avert the danger threatened by
