The following address was made by I admitted
president Roosevelt at the dedication , doubtless
oi tne St. Louis fair today:
Mr. President, Ladles and Gentlemen:
At the outset of my address let me
recall to the minds of my hearers
that the soil upon which we stand,
before it was ours, was successively
the possession of two mighty empires,
Si aln and France, whos.0 sons made
a deathless record of heroism In tho
early nnnnls of the New World. No
history of the Western country can
be written without paying heed to the
wonderful part played therein in the
early days by the soldiers, mission
aries, explorers nnd traders, who did
their work for the honor of the proud
banners of Fiance and Castile. While
tho settlers of English-speaking stock
anil those of Dutch, German and Scan
dinavian origin who were ever asso
ciated with them ,were still clinging
close to the Eastern seaboard, the
pioneers of Spain and ot France had
penetrated Into the hitherto unknown
wilderness of the West and had wan
dered far and wide within tho boun
daries of what Is now our mighty
country. Tho very cities themselves
St. Louis, New Orleans, Santa Fe.
New M?xico bear witness by their
titles to the nationalities ot their
founders. It was not until the Revo
lution had begun that the English
speaking settlers pushed west across
the Alleghenles, and not until a cen
tury ago that they entered in to pos
sets the land upon which we now
Great National Event.
Wo have met here today to com
memorate the hundredth anniversary
of the event which moro than any
other, after tho foundation of the gov
ernment and always excepting Its
preservation, determined the charac
te: of our national life determined
that -vj should be a creat "xpandlns
nation Instead of relatively a small
and stationary one.
Never before hnd the world seen the
kind of national expansion which
gave our people all that part of tho
American continent lying west of the
13 original states; the greatest land-j
mark in which was the Louisiana
Purchase. Our triumph in this pro
cess of expansion was indissolubly
bound up with the success of our pe
culiar kind of federal government;
and this success has been so com
plete that because of Us very com
pleteness wo now sometimes ran to
appreciate not only the all-Importance
but the tremendous difficulty of
the problem with which our nation
was originally faced.
No Precedent for Pioneers.
When our forefathers joined to call
into being this nation they undertook
a task for which there was but little
encouraging precedent. The develop
ment or civilization from the earliest
period bceniod to Bhow the truth of
two propositions: In the first place,
It had always proved exceedingly dif
ficult to secure both freedom and
strength iu any government; and In
tho second place, it had always proved
well-nigh Impossible for a nation to
expand without either breaking up or
the success of our effort to combine a
strong and efficient national union.
able to maintain our honor ana inter
est abroad, I have not now to deal.
Doubted Wisdom of Settlement.
During the colonial period many
good people in the mother country
thought It highly Important that set
tlers should be kept out of the Ohio
valley In the Interest of thp fur com
panies, so after we had become a na
tion many good people on tho Atlan
tic coast felt grave apprehension lest
they might somehow bo hurt by the
westward growth of tho nation. These
good people shook their heads over
the formation of states In the fertile
Ohio valley, which now forms part
of the heart of our nation; and they
declared that the destruction of the
republic had been accomplished when
through the Louisiana Purchase we
acquired nearly half of what is now
that same republic's present terri
tory. Nor was their feeling unnatural.
Only tho adventurous and the far
seeing can be expected heartily to
welcome the process of expansion, for
the nation that expands Is a nation
which is entering upon a great career
and with greatness .there must of ne
cessity come perils which daunt all
save the most stout-hearted.
Government for All People.
We expanded by carving tho wil
derness Into territories auu out oi
these territories building new states
when once they had received as per
manent sottlers a sufficient number
of our own people Being a practi
cul nation we Jinv never tried to
force on any section ot our new terri
tory an unsuitable form of govern
ment mejely becauso it was suitable
for anothei sqrtlou under (iirror'nt
conditions, or tne territory jcovpreu
by, trie Louisiana, Purchase.-a tporMpn
to stntuhood although
It &oon will be. In each
case wo showed tho practical govern
mental genius ot our raco by devising
methods suitable to meet, tho actual
existing needs; not by insisting upon
the application ot Bomo abstract shib
boleth ot all our new possessions
alike, no matter how Incongruous
this application might sometimes be.
Greatest National Feat,
This, then, Is tho great historic slg
nlficance of the movement of contl
nentnl expansion in which tho Louis'
inn.t Purchase wag tho most striking
single achievement. It stands out In
marked relief among tho feats of a
nation of pioneers, n nation whoso
people have from tho beginning been
picked out by a process of natural
selection from among tho most enter
piising Individuals of tho nations ot
Western Em ope. Tho acquisition of
the territory is n credit to tho broad
and far-sighted statesmanship of tho
great statesmen to whom It was 1m
mediately due, and nbove all to the
aggressive nnd masterful character
or the hardy pioneer folk to whoso
restless energy theso statesmen gave
expression and direction, whom they
rolloweil rather than led.
Louisiana an Epitome.
The history of the land comprised
within the limits of the Puruhaso is
an epitome of the entire history of our
people. Within these limits wo havo
gradually built up state after state
until now they many times over sur
pass in wealth, in population .and in
many-sided development, tho original
13 plates ns they woro when their del
cgates met in tho Continental con
gress. The people of these Btates
have shown themselves mighty In
war with their fellowmen. and mighty
In strength to tamo the rugged wll
derness. They could not thus have
comjuered the forest and the prairie,
the mountain and tho desert, hail they
not possessed tho great fighting vlr
tues, the qualities which enablo a
people to overcome the forces of bos'
tile men and hostile nature. On tho
other hand, they could not have used
aright their conquest had they not In
addition possessed the qualities of
seu-mastery and seir-restralnt. the
power of acting in combination with
their fellows, tho power of yielding
obedience to the law and of building
up an ordcily civilization.
Rugged Virtues Needed.
Courage anil hardihood are Indis
pensable virtues in u people; but the
people which possesses no others can
never rise high in the scalo either ot
power or of culture. Great peoples
must have In addition tho govenv
icntal capacity which comes only
when Individuals fully recognize their
duties to one another and to tho whole
body politic, and are ablo to Join to

Pioneer Days Gone.
The old pioneer days aro gone, with
their roughness nnd their haidshlp,
their Incredible toll and their wild
hulf-savnge romance. But the need
for the pioneer virtues remains the
same as ever. Tho peculiar frontier
conditions have vanished; but tho
manliness and stalwart hardihood of
tho frontiersman can bo given even
freer scope under tho conditions sur
rounding the complex industrialism
of the present day. In this great re
gion acquired for our people under
the presidency of Jefferson, this re
gion stretching from the Gulf to tho
Canadian border, from tho Mississippi
to the Rockies, tho material and social
progress hase been so vat that alike

Must Meet Changed Problems.
Now In 1903, In tho nltored condi
tions, we must meet tho changed and
changing problems with the spirit
shown by the men who in 1803 and in
the subsequent years gained, explored,
conquered and settled this vast terri
tory, then a desert, now filled with
thriving and populous states.
The old days ware great becauso the
men who lived in them had mighty
qualities; and we must make the
new days great by showing these
same qualities. We must Insist upon
courage and resolution, upon hardi
hood .tenacity and fertility In re
source; we must Insist upon tho
strong virllo virtues; and wo must In
sist no less upon tho virtues of self-
restraint, self-mastery, regard for tho
rights of others; wa must show our
nbhorence of cruelly, brutality and
corruption, In public and In private
life alike. If we come short iu any
