In addition, any property he may at somo future time acquire will be subject to "Judgment for costs In the case amountin to over J10.000. Judge McPherson read the iudement- He attributed the downfall of Balllet not so much to criminal Instincts as to vanity and his desire to" exploit himself. In pass ing judgment, the court stated also that Balllet could not be given a good defense because under the statutes he was re qulred'to deny the motion which had been made that witnesses for the defense be brought here at the expense of the Gov ernment from California and Oregon. The White Swan gold mine at Baker City, Or., which was nothing more than an abandoned shaft, was acquired by Bal let for a mere song and constituted the basis upon which he secured something like 5250,000 by a get-rich-quick process.

Great -Crowd Surrounds President's Car at an Early Hour. ST. LOUIS, Nov. 26. President Roose velt and the members of his party were early astir, preparing for their day of record-breaking sightseeing. In the party are President. Roosevelt, Mrs. Roosevelt, Miss Roosevelt, Mr. and Mrs. Douglass Robinson, . Secretary and Mrs. Loeb and Surgeon-General Rlxey, U. S. N. Breakfast was served in their car, which was surrounded by a great crowd of "World's Ealr visitors. Although kept at a distance, they were able to see the President, who sat in full view before one of the windows during the morn ing meaL He seemed as much inter ested in the people as they were in him. Shortly after breakfast had been finished President Francis, -with Mayor Wells and a committee of exposition officials and directors, appeared at the car to pay their respects to the Chief Executive. The reception was very in formal, the party walking through the car and meeting the members of the party. The party then proceeded to the Liberal Arts building:, which was the first of tho great exhibit palaces to be seen. Two battalions of the Eighth United States Cavalry, from Jefferson Bar racks, under command of Colonel An derson, and a platoon of mounted po lice, preceded the carriages. In the -first carriage were President and Mrs. Roosevelt and President D. R. Francis, of the exposition. Mr. Douglas Robin son, Miss Alice Roosevelt and Mayor Rolla Wells occupied the second car riage. The 20 or more carriages that followed contained the other members of the Presidential party, exposition of ficial and Secret Service men. An other platoon of mounted police brought up the rear and kept back an Immense crowd anxious to keep up with tho party. Kept Busy Responding to Cheers. The route of the procession was thronged with people, who gave the President an ovation and kept him busy responding1 to their cheers. , As the party proceeded through the grounds President Roosevelt repeated ly lifted his hat to those on the right and left. Arriving at the Liberal Arts building, which, with all the other exhibit pal aces, was closed to the general public, the Presidential party alighted from their carriages and entered for a hasty inspection of the exhibits. At the con clusion of this inspection carriages were again entered, at the other side of the building, and the party proceeded to the Government building, where, af ter a short time spent in sightseeing. President Roosevelt reviewed, the mili tary. Among the bodies of troops in the reviewing line -were the Sixteenth United States Infantry, Ninth United States Cavalry. Eighth United States Cavalry and the Philippine scouts and constabulary, headed by their respect ive bands. The thousands who thronged about the Government building took advantage of every projection on the surrounding struc tures, the pedestals of numerous statues, the lagoon bridges and other elevations to enable them to see the President and the parade. While in the Government building a numerous body of men and women desir ous of meeting the President had carefully blocked the aisle by which he was ex pected to pass out. Ho was completely trapped and made no attempt to escape. Walking up. hat in hand, he met mem bers of the board of lady managers, who were there in a body, headed by the president; Mrs. Daniel Manning; the heads of the various departments of the Exposition, and several individuals there in an unofficial capacity. He met them all with the same greeting-, -"So glad, so glad." Before leaving the vicinity of thq Government building the President was escorted to that nearby, occupied by the fisheries exhibit. Everything there pleased mm immensely. The party again took carriages, and as the procession moved around the Mines and Metallurgical building on its way to the German building, eager crowds of en thusiastic people were seen everywhere. Arriving at the beautiful structure, which is a replica of the f amouB Charlo ttenburg palace, President Roosevelt was -met by the German Commissioner-General to the World's Fair. Theodore Lewald, who con-, ducted him inside with the remainder of the party. The entry of the party was made to the music of the chimes of the Belgian palace and the strains of an orchestra. After greeting President and Mrs. Roosevelt. Commissioner-General Lewald turned to Miss Alice Roosevelt, for whom he gave an elaborate ball when she was here in the Summer, and they met as old friends. Walking quickly through the lower par lors, the party climbed the -stairs to tho upper floor, where an informal luncheon was served. Commissioner Lewald pre sented the President with a "pokal," a massive metal goblet from Aachen. It contained a liberal draught of wine, and as the President sipped this, the donor explained the history of the goblet and its contents. The party was driven west over the summit of Festival Hill and down the western slope to the main portion of the exposition, affording the President a full view of the principal lagoon basin, the Cascade and the plaza of St. Louis. Con tinuing west at a canter, the carriages were drawn Into the French pavilion gar dens. President and Mrs. Roosevelt and other members of the party were Immediately escorted Into the reception-room of the French pavilion. Commissioner-General George Gerald met the party and tendered a warm greeting, speaking in French. President Roosevelt responded by propos ing a toast to President Loubct and the republic of France. When President Roosevelt had spoken and the glasses of champagne had been sipped in honor of the toast, a massive bouquet of American Beauty roses were presented to Mrs. Roosevelt by the French Commissioner. Light refreshments were partaken of, and the party passed through and viewed the pavilion. Altogether not over 20 minutes were spent here. The party then proceeded to the pavilion of Mexico. While being shown through the Holland building President Roosevelt noticed a 2-year-old child in the arms of its mother. Stepping up he patted the baby on the cheek, and then, turning with beaming face, he called to Mrs. Roosevelt: "Oh, Edith, come here; I want you to see a genuine little Dutch girl." Mrs. Roosevelt smilingly took the child in her arms, and for a moment both the President and his wife fondled the baby. From the Holland building the party proceeded to the pavilions of Austria and Sweden, where but a few moments "were ppent In each, and then proceeded to visit rapidly the other different national pavilions situated immediately east of Administration terrace. Eight minutes was the duration of time spent In the building of Great Britain, where President Roosevelt and his party were greeted by Colonel Watson, the Eng lish commissioner, and conducted through the stately rooms. Visits were then made to the pavilions of Cuba, Belgium, Aus tria and Italy In rapid succession. In the odd and picturesque Chinese pa vilion President Roosevelt was presented with a painting of an Oriental figure 300 years old. Mrs. Roosevelt was the re cipient of a curiously carved and inlaid box. In response to the felicitations of the commissioner from China, Mr. Wong. President Roosevelt proposed this toast: "May prosperity and unity attend the Chinese." At the Brazilian building the party was welcomed by Commissioner Agulrar, who presented President Roosevelt with a handsome saddle and sliver-mounted crop. Mrs. Roosevelt' was given a bouquet of roses, such as she. had been the recipient of In every foreign pavilion. A great crowd lined the roadway lead ing to the Imperial Japanese gardens, the next place visited by the party. As the President's carriage came up oppo site the crowd, among which were many Japanese, he was greeted with cries of "banzai." He responded In kind with the Japanese word "nitton." Proceeding to the tea house in one corner of the garden the party entered and partook of refresh ments. As the President stood drinking his tea in one of the balconies two noted Japanese fencers indulged in a match for his benefit. He expressed his pleasure at the skill of the men. Later he examined with Interest some" suits of ancient armor and other Implements of war shown in a building near-by. Commissioner-General Tegu acknowl edged the honors during the short stay of the party in the gardens. They then proceeded to the West Pavilion for lunch con. Nearly an hour was consumed in visit ing the extensive exhibits of cereals and farm products and machinery In the vast building, the largest structure of its kind in tho world. Everything seemed to in terest the indefatigable leader of the President's party, to judge from "his fre quent characteristic exclamations of pleasure and surprise. It was but a short trip to the Philippine reservation, and as the party drove across the bridge over the Arrow Lake into tht "Walled City of Manila," they were greeted with cheers from another great crowd, composed in part of natives from the various villages. Great interest was shown by the President in the peoples of the several villages which were visited in turn. Tho Negritos, the smallest people in the islands, the Igorrotes, with their war dances and singing, and the repre sentatives of numerous tribes of Moros each tried to outdo the others in showing off to please the President and his party. The several exhibit buildings on tho reservation, filled with the products of the Islands and "work of the natives, were taken in in turn, and the party then at tended the evening parade of the Phlllpr plne scouts and constabulary. After this ceremony, at the conclusion of which the troops passed In review before the Chief Executive, tho troops gave a drill To the music of their splendid band the scouts and members of the constabulary went through the manual of arms In per fect time with merely a preparatory com mand from their officers. Then, In open order, the little brown soldiers executed Intricate callsthentics with their rifles, keeping time with the horns and the tap of the drum. A special drill with bolos followed. After the drill, President Roosevelt asked to have the band play "Garry Owen." and when this was done he showed his appreciation by clapping his hands. "That is tho greatest fighting tune in the world." he said. At the conclusion of the drill and pa rade Major W. J. Johnson, in command of the Filipino troops at the World's. Fair, raised his hands and called for "three cheers lor the President of the United States." The soldiers, as well as all within the lnclosure, joined in giving the cheers with a Trill. The playing of "America," con cluded the programme. During the visit of the President to the Philippine village visitors were excluded from the reservation, a complete line of pickets made up of men from the Six teenth United States Infantry and Philip pine police guarding every approach to the the grounds. MERIT TELLS. ST. LOUIS, Nov. 23.

Passing into the Morolllage adjoin ing, the President was met by Datto Facunda, who presented him with a big knife, saying through an Inter preter: "I give you my prla, which has. been my own individual weapon and with -which I have killed three enemies. There will be no more fighting In my country and I -will have no more use for my- prla. I will give It to nobody but you." v The President accepted the knife and expressed his thankfulness that war was lit an end and that the disposal of tho weapon was emblematic of peace. In the Visayan village -the President "was entertained In tho native theater by dancing and singing. At the conclu sion of the exercises Miss Teresa Ra mloz -was introduced to the President and presented to him a handsomely carved cane. The President took the cane and said: His Message for Islands. "In expressing my thanks for this beautiful cane I desire to say that I want you to go back toyour homes and say that this Government will do all that it can for' the mental and moral welfare and the happiness and pros perity of the Filipinos." In the Bagabo villago a silver dish was presented and the President spoke briefly in excepting. With Mra. Roosevelt and Miss Alice trudging at his side the President hur ried from place to place, stopping only long enough to get a general idea of tho exhibits, applauding the constabul ary drill and expressing his pleasure at all ho saw. Just as the- party was crossing the Bridge of Spain over tho moat bjefore the walled city in leaving the Philippines reservation, President Roosevelt suddenly halted in the mid dle of tho brldgo and said to Major William H. Johnston, .commandant of the Philippines Scouts: want to congratulate you upon the remarkably clean and effective drill of your battalion, which Is very fine and Impressive." "You have Secretary of War Taft to thank, as we are all his proteges,' quickly replied Major Johnston, smil ing. "Yes, I know," replied tho President T see now how much good' Secretary Taft did In the Philippines. I will make an effort to have your battalion attend the inaugural in Washington." Major Johnston thanked the Presl dent warmly, assuring him that all the scouts would be glad to attend, as they had seen a little of America and desired to see more. The visitors then: entered carriages and were driven to Machinery Hall. The night had advanced and It was decided to spend little time In Ma chlnery Hall, as the President was to attend a banquet later in the evening. From Machinery Hall the visitors were hurried into the Electricity building and from the veranda they viewed the special pyrotechnic display on Festival Hill and the Illumination of the Cas cades with red fire. The President was greatly pleased with the beautiful ef fects produced by tho varl-colored lights and warmly expressed his appre ciauon. .tnis ciosea tne aay s pro gramme and the President, Mrs. Roose velt and Miss Alice were driven to the residence of Mr. Thompson, treasurer of the Exposition, whose guests they were during their stay, in St. Louis.

At the conclusion of the banquet. Pres ident Francis introduced President Roose velt as the "typical American who typifies the objects of American principles." President Roosevelt made the only speech of the evening. He said: I count It Indeed a privilege to have bad the chance ot visiting this marvelous exposition. I cannot sufficiently express my appreciation of Its wonder and Its beauty. It is the great est exposition of its kind we have ever seen in recorded history. As I walked today through and among the buildings and saw what they were; what they signified In the way of achievement at home; what they sig nified in, the way of achievement among t&ese great arid friendly nations who are represented here, I had but one regret, and that was a deep regret the regret that these could not be made permanent the regret that It la impos sible to keep these buildings .as they are as a permanent memorial of the greatness ot this country. I think that the American who begrudges a dollar that has been spent here is not so far sighted as he should be It Is & credit to the United States that this exposition should have been carried to such a successful conclusion, and, of course, it Is a credit to Missouri and to St. Louis on behalf of all the people of the country. For each man In the country had a personal stake in the success of this exposition, for Its success resected credit upon the entire country, and therefore, on behalf of the Nation I will have to express my deep appreciation of -the far-elghtcd, tireless, intelligent, disin terested work that has been done by all who are responsible for this exposition, and more than by all others, by you. President Francis. The country Is under a great debt of obliga tion to you and your associates, and I am glad of this opportunity to express my sense of this obligation. It Is a great pleasure to me to come here to see this great exposition, because of whit the exposition was. I have always been greatly Interested in Missouri, and during tho last three weeks I have grown, to think of it, if possible, even more highly than before. A number of years ago I made a particular study of one of the great men whom In tlpe past Missouri has presented to the service of the Nation old Tom Benton. I have felt that not only I, but every American who .had the wel fare ot the Nation at heart, xould find ery much br which to profit la the career of Ben ton and his fellows of the Jacksonl&n Democ racy of that day. It Is a curious thing, how as time " goes by, we are able to" see lh the . lata, and In the sarties of tho put, features ot t!io ut0t usefalaesr to the country, even though at the tbse those rae-n or those parties seemd aataxodstlc, and X wish to say that any goc-A American of the present can find a great amount from, which to learn, and by which to profit, in the principles and the prac tices alike at juuL.TOilg. , who followed the lead of Henry Clay, of Kentucky, and of those whom they regarded as 'then the chief foes of those very "Whigs the Democrats who followed the lead ot Andrew Jackson, of Tennessee; and of Tom Benton, ot Missouri; and of Sam Hous ton, ot Texas; and perhaps the chief psscn to be learned from tho lives of all those men Is the leescn of a broad Americanism, an Americanism that should teach every true man that' he. Is no true American unless the wel fare of each ot his countrymen Is dear to him, and that without the slightest regard as to where that countryman lives.-. BUSSLAN SHIPS AT SUEZ.

Nearly everybody knows that charcoal Is the safest and most efficient disinfectant and purifier in nature, but few realize its value when taken into tho human system for the same cleansing purpose. Charcoal is a remedy that-the moro you take of It the better; It Is not a drug at all, but simply absorbs the gases and Impurities always present In the stomach and intestines and carries them out of the system. Charcoal sweetens the breath after smoking; drinking or after eating onions and other odorous vegetables. Charcoal effectually clears and improves the" complexion, it whitens the teeth and further acts as a natural and eminently sate cathartic It absorbs the Injurious gases which collect in the stomach and bowela; It dis infects the mouth, and throat from the poison of catarrh. All druggists sell charcoal in one form or another, but probably the best char coal and the most for the money Is In Stuart's Charcoal Lozenges, they are composed of the finest powdered Willow charcoal, and other harmless antiseptics in tablet form or rather in the form of large, pleasant tasting lozenges the char coal being mjzed with honey. The daily use of these lozenges will" soon tell In a--much improved condition of the general health, -better complexion, sweeter breath and purer blood, and $& beauty of it Is. that no possible barm can result from their continued use, but on the contrary, great benefit. A Buffalo physician in speaking of the benefits ot charcoal, says: "I advise Stuart's Charcoal Loaeages to all patients suffering- from gas in stoB&acB and bowels, and to clear the complexion and purify the breath, mouth and throat; I also be lieve the aver Is greatly benefited by the dally use of them; tfa-ey cost but twenty five cents-a. box at drugstores, and al though in some sense, a, patent prepara tion, yet I believe I get more and better charcoal In Stuart's Charcot! LoaengM than in any- of the rctiary charoi tablets."
