COMPLIMENTS WOMANS CLUB
Memorial Hall Dedicated In Rock
ford, Amid Thousands Of
Freeport, 111., June 3. President
Roosevelt and part? reached here
from Dubuque at 8 o'clock, and im
mediately afterwards were driven to
the site pf the Lincoln-Douglas de
bate in 1858, where a monument co
memoiating the event was unveiled
in the presence of many thousands
from Freeport and vicinity. At the
courthouse the president was intro
duced by Congressman Ilitt. The
president referred to the debate as
an event of farreachingimportance.
He complimented the women's club
of Freeport which erected the mon
ument. President Roosevelt spoke
"It is eminently fitting that this
monument given by 'the women of
this , city in commemoration of the
i'reat debate that here took place be
recalled by the man whose deeds
made good the words of Abraham
Lincoln and the soldiers of the Civil
war. 1 he word was mighty, and
had it not been for the word the
deeds could not have . taken place.
But without the deeds, the words
would have been the idlest breath.
It is forever to the honor of our
nation that brought ( the statement
that could pierce the clouds that ob
scured the sight of the keenest of
his fellows, and could see what the
future inevitably held. And more
over that we had back of the states
man and behind him the men to
whom it was given to . fight the
greatest war ever waged for the'good
of mankind and for the betterment
of the world." v ';
At 8:30 the party was driven to
the depot and left for Rockford.

Kansas City, MoJJ, June, 3., The
Missouri river fell even inches be

approaches to the Rood district.

pumping tonight and the retail busi
ness district will be supplied with
water tomorrow. The railroads are
still doing incompetent service, but
are repairing washouts. The re
ports of heavy loss of life in Kan
sas City , Kan are not true and tales of
bodies found in drifts there are un
founded. The loss of property has
ially greeted by a committea of sixf t
headed by Charles E. Jackson, and -escorted
to Memorial hall. Con-j
gressman Hitt introduced the presi
dent to the vast audience, and the
president made a brief response,
after which came the unfurling of
the flag over the memorial structure.
The president and party then re
turned to their carriages and en-
ioved 'a short drive through the
principal streets, first passing in re
view before some 4,000 school
children massed at a park adjoining
the . memorial building grounds.
Each child carried an American flag
and the salute given President
Roosevelt was a most inspiring
sight. The decorations were the
most elaborate ever attempted in this
