This exposition has to be. to Justify
in the minds of man the potency of
dreams and visions over mere material
things. It is in consonance with the
record or this people. Some time In
the hurrying rush of reEtless men it
had to be. but it came sooner than
otherwise it would have come, because
someone dreamed that here in this sun
kissed clime there lay the seven cities
"Surely he should not be charged
with being merely poetic in mind, who
on this occasion Boldly declares that
California . is the-product of a dream
and that this exposition is, the comr
poslte photograph of dreamers. The
seven cities of Cibola have become
seventy and seven cities of culture,
wealth and character. The dream of
the Anian Strait has become a reality,
south of Mexico. It is true, but never
theless a reality called the Panama
1 am sure I express the thought of
ihe Fresident and the hope of the
American people when I say that our
Canal was built not alone for glory or
great gain, but with a sincere desire
to make the whole world kin. There
are two gospels now Instead of one:
the gospel of good will has been sup
plemented by the gospel of personal
contact. The gospel of good will con
tinue to be supreme, but nothing will
help it preach so loudly as those human
agencies which eliminate distance,
blend languages and give us sight as
well as knowledge each of the other.
"I am quite sure that I am but one
of a countless throng in this republic
who regret that this altruistic work
has a real or seeming defect in the
charge of an. injustice done a sister
republic to the south. Let us not be
too much dismayed this day by reason
f that fact. The American people are
wise and they know he is not wise who
is not Just. I look, with confidence,
for the early arrival of that good hour
when whatever wrong may have been
done shall be righted and when there
will be left no drop of bitter water to
flow in that channel which unites the
Friendly Relations Craved.
"From the first to the present
President of the United States, when
ever thought has been voiced upon the
subject, that thought has been that
wb exist for humanity's sake as much
as for our own, that we crave 'friendly
relations with all people and entan
gling alliances with none.'
While half the world is in a rage
indescribable and unutterable, seek
ing to build monuments out of clay
kneaded in a brother's blood, sad-eyed
and sober the Goddess of our institu
tions seeks to hold out to a warring
world the olive branch of peace.
"Ostensibly I am here in the name ot
the President of the United States to
dedicate this exposition in glorifica
tion of the completion of the canal.
Really, that waterway from its be
ginning was dedicated to the idea and
the ideals of the Republic. Here men
of every age and everj' clime behold
the noonday of the world's accomplish
ment, the crystallization of the dreams
and thoughts of genius and of talent.
May we not hope that here a thougbt
dawn will be born that shall not cease
to broaden until at Its meridian light,
all men around the world are one?

CARGO OWNERSHIP IX DOUBT
Food on Wilhelmina Not Property of
One Concern, Is Belief.
WASHINGTON, March 24. Complies-
tions have arisen in regard to the own
ership of the cargo of the American
steamship Wilhelmina, which are be
lieved to have influenced the British
Admiralty court in resisting counsel's
application for a prompt determination
of the proceedings before the court.
It was at first supposed that the
cargo of provisions was owned entirely
by an American concern and it was on
that understanding that the State De
partment as late as last week made
representations to the British Govern
ment with a viow of having the legal
proceedings expedited to escape a loi
Recently, however, it has been re
ported to the department that the own
ership of the cargo was not entirely In
one concern, and now it is expected
that the procecjilncs in the British
court will be shaped to develop all thn
facts connected with the ownership.
The Wilhelmina, being an Atnerlrsn
vessel, will be released by the coutt.
according to the expectations of the
State Department officials, regardless
of the dlspol'i"n miii of her cargo.
