Then Mayor Thomas G. Halley
spoke. He said in part:
"Friends and fellow citizens: 1

cess of this our first May dny cele
bration. If our president wero hero

"Yesterday the president spoke on
tho question of American citizenship.
At that time he used these words:
" .ow in 1903, in the altered con-1
dltlons, wo must meet the changed
and changing problems with the spirit I
shown by the men who in 1S03 and
In the subsequent years gained, ex-
plorcd, conquered and settled this
vast territory, then a desert, now
filled with thriving and populous
" 'The old days wero great because
the men who lived in them had
mighty qualities; and we must mako
the new days great by showing these
same qualities. We must insist upon
courage and resolution, upon hard!
hood, tenacity and fertility in re
source; we must insist upon the
strong virile virtues; and wo must
insist no less upon the virtues of self-
restraint, self-mastery, regard for tho
rights of others; we must show our
abhorrence of cruelty, brutality and
corruption, in public and in private
life alike. If wo come short In any
of these qualities we shall measura
bly fall; and if, as J believe wo surely
Khnll. we develop these qualities in
the futuro to an even greater degreo
than in the past, then in the century
now beginning we shall mako ot this
republic the freest and most orderly.
tho most Just and the most mighty
nation which Iwb ever como forth
from the womb ot time.'
"While I disagree on the race sul
clde question, I agree with what ho
said In these words: 'That sentiment
it seems to me, should be taught in
every public and private school and in
every church In the land.
" 'That sentiment should havo its
Inception in the homo and tho schools.
Let our life bo as puro as tho white
robes of the children hero. Iet us go
homo and mako our homo so pure,
our lives so Just that our country
will stand tho greatest and grandest
monument that, as our president has
no aptly said, 'ever sprang from the
womb ot time.' I thank you."
At the conclusion of tho address
the crowd dispersed, most of them
going to tho ball game, between Col
fax and Pendleton teams.

PARISIANS HEARTILY RECEIVE EDWARD
Paris, May L lf one did not under
stand tho Frenrh national character
the rousing welcome accorded King
Edward upon his arrival in Paris to
day would seem moro than passing
strange. In fact, even to the initiat
ed it Is somewhat of a surprise to
see the head ot the English nation
greeted with enthusiasm apparently
so genuine when the extreme pro
Boer attitude of the French during tho
rocent South African war is recalled.
But recent moves on the European
chessboard have thrown England and
Franco closer together and the wel
come of King Edward is merely a
method chosen by Franco to empha
size this friendly understanding. Then
again international politics aside.
King Edwdrd has always been ono of
tho most popular visitors to Paris.
In his younger days, when Prince of
Wales, ho made frequent visits to the
French capital and his democratic

The king Is to remain In Paris until
