$ .EW YORK, June 1". Theodore

miles, by dead reckoning, of the wel
come New York will give him next Sat
urday morning on his Return to Amer
ica after an eventful absence of 15
months.
His ship, the Kalserin Augusts. Vic
toria, is rated as a 17-knot vessel and
at her normal, speed she should cover
nits remaining; aiscance in z nours,
bringing the ex-President to the gate
way of the harbor at 5 A. M. Saturday.
It is Colonel Roosevelt's intension to
leave the . steamer at 9. o'clock that
morning, so it is presumed the vessel
will be held back when she -iears port.
so as not to arrive before schedule.
Twenty-one guns, the National salute,
will greet ex-President Roosevelt as he
enters the outer harbor of New York
on nis return to this country. -
The battleship South Carolina, to be
stationed in the Ambrose Channel, thus
wi;i notify an expectant city that the
Kalserin Auguste Victoria and her dis
tlnguished passenger are near.
In completion of the naval demon
stration that will follow. Chairman R.
A. Smith of the harbor display com
mlttee announced tonight the list of
.vessels and line formation. Final in
fctructions also were given to the cap
tains. Eighty warships, harbor patrol
boats and other steamers will take of
ficial part in the parade up the Hudson
River and back to the Battery.
In addition, a- flotilla of 150 merchant
steamers will carry sightseers down
the bay to. witness transfer of Colonel
Roosevelt and his j-rty from the ocean
liner to the Androscoggin, the revenue
cutter that will bear the welcoming
party and Colonel Roosevelt 'in the
parade.
-Am the party boards the Androscoggin
a second salute will announce that he
Is once more under the American flag.
For two minutes following the com
bined flotillas will Join in a blast of
whistles. ,
Escorted by, revenue steamers, police
patrol boats, the South ' Carolina, five
torpedo-boat destroyers and the Gov

Androscoggin will lead the river parade.
When Colonel Roosevelt lands at the
Battery the fornal welcome by Mayor
Oaynor will proceed. His speech and
that by Mr. Roosevelt will be the only
addresses and the land parade will start
immediately.
New York began final preparations
for the reception in earnest today. De
spite rain and clouds, the decorating
of the city for the event went steadily
ahead.
In other ways, the near approach of
the Roosevelt reception has been lm
pressed upon the city, one or these is
in the influx of visitors. Hotel reg
isters gave the best proof of this.
Even far-away Alaska loomed up
when word was received from Governor
Clark of that territory that ex-Gov
ernor W. B. Hoggatt of that territory
will arrive here in time to represent
him in the ceremonies. Today, how
ever, is expected to bring the real out
of-town throng.

TRAIN HITS Off ROCK

STOPPED AT ARLIXGTOX.
ASSEMBLY WILL BE TOPIC
Boulder, loosened by Raln, Slides
on Track Engine Tender Is
Hurled Into Columbia.
. Whizzing around a. curve a mile and
a half east of Arlington at ?:S0 Thursday
night, an extra freight train on the
O. R. & N. struck a boulder which had
tumbled down from the cliff above, and
was thrown from "the track.
Four men were injured in the crash,
three of them seriously. News of the
accident was received late last night
at the local offices of the road.
On one side of the track at the place
of the accident, is a steep cliff and on
the other, is the Columbia River, into,
which the tender of the locomotive was
turled. The front wheels of the? en
gine left the track and 18 freight cars
were jammed together in a conglom
erate mass of splintered wood and
wrenched rods and spilled merchan
dise. '
The most seriously injured are -A. O.
Strule, of The-Dalles, a brakeman, and
two" unidentified tramps, who were
stealing a ride. They were taken to
Arlington for treatment. The extent
of their injuries was not known' early
this morning, but all of them are in
a critical condition.' Fireman Hinkle,
of The Dalles, was slightly injured,
and walked to Arlington.
The wreck completely blocked traf
fic. Eight passenger trains were -held
up, four eastbound and the same num
ber westbound. The eastbound trains
were halted at Arlington and the others
stopped east of the wreck.
The recent rains evidently loosened
the boulder which, caused the accident
Two wrecking outfits and General
Superintendent Buckley and Superin
tendent Bollons went at oncel to the
scene to clear the track.
Strule received internal injuries and
will probably die. He is being rushed
to Portland on a special train. ' One
hundred feet or more of track were
torn up.

but we contracted a marriage which the
courts recognized as legal. Finally, we
went to Seattle. First .we worked in a
theater together and then we took our
savings and built a sort of variety show.
Kvlth a saloon attached. We kept on
making money."
When Cort sued, for divorce, she left
him,. Then she sued for divorce and won,
ajid each took one of the children.

And we never had any agreement about
property rights."

' ST. LOUIS. June 17. That Theodore
Roosevelt "will announce the policy to
the Republican party on which the next
National campaign will be conducted
as soon as he arrives on the American
shore was the declaration of Governor
Herbert S. Hadley here last night at a
bantjuet of Republican clubs.
"I expect," said the Governor, "im
mediately on the return to our shore of
the greatest political genius this coun
try has ever produced, as well as the
first citizen of the world today, to hear
from the lips of Mr. Roosevelt an an
nouncement of the policies of the Re
publican party which can be adopted
by all. 1
.y "Prior to 1896 the Republican party
was one or progress, out at that time
it became the conservative party and
remained so' until 1901, when it came
under the domination of Theodore
Roosevelt. At that time it became a
party of radicalism and I hope to see
it continue so." .

CHICAGO, June 17. Fourteen objec
tions by the defense against tle admis
sion ' of the testimony of State Repre
sentatives Myers, Link and Beckemeyer
in the O'Neill Browne bribery trial were
overruled by Judge McSurely yesterday.

prosecution as it permitted the first cor
roborative evidence in support of the
"concession" of -Representative Charles
A- White- that he had been paid $1000 for
voting for United , States Senator
Lorimer. (
Myers testified in effect that Browne
had visited him on' "the day of the
Lorimer election and asked for his vote,
saying there were lots of Jobs and plenty
of the "ready" for those who voted for
Lorimer.
Representative Beckemeyer, of Car
lisle 111., then took the stand. Becke
meyer made confession No. 2 before the
grand jury. In hjs testimony today
Beckemeyer corroborated White in every
niaterial point. Beckemeyer said he had
been called to St. Louis as White had
been and there was handed a "package"
by Browne, who remarked. "There is
your Lorimer money."
Beckemeyer said he opened the pack
age" and found $1000 in $30 bills.

Balky IJorse Draws Buggy Only

VANCOUVER, Wash.. June 17. (Spe

pretty young women used to coax a
balky horse to action, while" out driv

terday. ,
The three youngr women were driv

and came across the ferry from St
Johns, Or., -.bound for the country to
visit Jriends. When the animal and
his happy trio reached Hazeldell he
became weary on a hi.U and refused to
budge. Nothing could moje him. He
was immune to pain from a whip and
stubborn as a mule to coaxing.
Fjnally, one of the misses conceived
the idea of riding the balky horse. Ac
cordingly he was unhooked from the
buggy and unharnessed, and the buggy
(backed away. Then' by the aid 'of a
stump she Jamped astride of- the ani
mal's back andurged him to go ahead.
He "responded immediately, and after
going down the road 100 yards the
young woman rode back to 'the stump.

Record for Altitude.
INDIANAPOLIS, June 17. Trying for
the aeroplane altitude record, Walter
Brookins, in a Wright biplane, rose to
a height of 3700 feet in 24 minutes at
the Speedway late yesterday. The rec
ord, 43844 feet, was set by Brookins
last Monday and at the highest point of
hia flight yesterday a computation
based on the altimeter observation was
officially", announced as showing the
aviator had risen to 5000 feet. An
error, corrected by the aneroid barom
eten attached to Brookins machine,
showed his highest altitude to have
been S700 feet.
Brookins was in the air 54 minutes.
Archie Hoxey, driving. a Wright bi
plane, made a sensationar descent from
a height of 800 feet when his engine
clogged and shopped. Hoxey's machine
began a sudden drop, but. he quickly
regained control of the planes and made
a brilliant glide of a quarter of a mile
