WASHINGTON, I). C. Feb. 9. In
solemn soinIccs within the House
chainber todn the nation's leaders
and representatives of foreign gov
ernments paid tribute to tho memory
of Theodore Iloosevelt. Members of
Congress. Supreme Court Justices,
members of the cabinet, army and
navy oflcers, and diplomats of many
nations heard Senator Lodge of MasH
iichusetts, praise Roosevelt as a
statesman uud as a man.
Crowded galleries mid the thron
of men and women who could not
gain admission testified to the per
sonal feeling for tho man whoso
death shocked the world. It was
this to which Senntor Lodge, a close
friend of the man lie eulogized, re
ferred, when he spoke these words In
tho stillness of the House chamber:
"A tower Is fallen, a star Is set!
Alas! Alas! for Celln.
"The words of lamentation from
the old Moorish ballad, which in boy
hood we used to recite, must, I think.
have risen to many lips when tlio
world was told Hint Theodore Roose
velt was dead. Hut whatever tho
phrase the thought was Instant and
"Variously expressed, you heard It
In the crowds about the bulletin
boards, from the man in the street
and tho mini ou tlm railroads, from
tho farmer In tho fields, the women In
tho shops, In the factories, mid In
the homes. The pulpit found In his
life a text sor sermons. The Judge on
the bench, tho child at school, allko
pruised for a moment conscious of a
loss. Tho cry of sorrow came from
men mid women of all conditions,
high and low, rich and poor, from tho
learned and the Ignorant, from tho
multitude who had loved and follow
ed him, mid from those who had op
posed and resisted him. The news
papers pushed aside the absorbing
renorts of tho events of these fate
ful days and gave pages to the man
who bad died
"Flashed benonth the ocean and
through the air went tho announce
ment of Theodoro Roosevelt's denth
and back came a world-wide response
from couits and cibiuets, from press
mid people, in other mid far distant
lands. Thru It all ran a golden thread
of personal feeling which gleams so
rarely In the somber formalism of
public grlof. It would seom that hero
wns n man, u private citizen, conspi
cuous by no olllco, with no glitter of
power about him, no ability to re
ward or punish, gono from earthlv
life, who must havo been unusual
oven among the leaders of men, and
who thus dmi)unds our 'serious con
sldnratlon." Senator Lodge was the only speak
er and tho services wero simple.
I'rayors by, the Senate and House
chaplains and nnthonis and patriotic
hvmns bv tho Marino Hand added to
tbo stirring spiritual nature of the
"Wo cannot mproneli Theodore
Iloosevelt along tho beaten pnths of
F.uloey or satisfy ourselves with the
emuty civilities ot commonplnco fun
eral tributes " said Senator Lodgo,
"fur ho did not make his life Journey
over nialu'trnx oiled roads nor wns
bo ever commonplace. Cold nnd
PQinnoiih formalities would bo imsult
ed to him who was devoid of nffecta
tlon, who was nover self-conscious,
anil to whom posturing to draw tho
nubile gaze scorned not only repollnnt
but viili"i r In ,,,, nut-it "f devotion
to tiutbV slninlliitv 1 slinll try to
speik of hltn today."
Referring to Roosevolt's Inheri
tance of coliipnrotlvo wealth. Senator
Lodgo said "He lucked the snur of
necessity to prick the sides of hie In
lent. Theodoro Roosevelt put behind
him tomiitstlon to a life of sports and
pleasuro, to lettored ease, to mi ama
teurs career In ono of tho flno arts,
poib'ii's to a nionev making business.
"How ho refused to trend tho pleas
ant paths that oponed to him on all
sides nnd took tho Instant way which
lod over tbo rough livid of toll and
action, lib life discloses,"
Mr Lodgo outlined tho life of tho
man who came to plnv such a big
part In the nntlon's life. With de
licate honltli and iionr-slghteduoss In
'childhood, he became, by sheer hard
work mi athlete and a rifle shot. This
' was typical, said Mr Lodge. He spoke
of how Roosevelt persisted In the un
1 iikiiuI; how he made himself a nation
al figure In one ycur at tho age of
24 whllo serving In the New York
state legislature, how he fought and
won for civil service reform when
civil net vice was scoffed at by Influen
tial leaders and of how he applied
himself BtrenuoiiHly to the task of ex
pelling favoritism and" politics from
the New York police force, through
which "a purely local office became
national In his hands, and his pic
ture appeared In the shops of Euro
As Assistant Secretary of the Navy,
when he ordered Dewey to prepare
for Manila Hay before war came, as
colonel of the Rough Riders' regi
ment at San Juan, as governor of
New York, as Vite President, and as
President Mr. Roosevclts career was
traced. After reviewing the Roose
velt administrations, touching upon
many of the most Important features,
Including Roosevelt's part in world
policies which won the Nobel Peace
Prize for the man "dreaded at the
beginning on account of his comba
tive spirit." and his fight for a larg
er government control of railroads
and against the polltUnl Influence
of combinations of capital, Senator
.'In the Panama ('anal he left the
most enduring, as It wa.s tho most
visible, monument of his administra
tion. Much criticized at the moment
for his nction In regard to it, which
time since then has Justified and
which history will praise, the great
fact remains that the canal Is there.
He said himself that he made up his
mind that it was Ms duty to establish
the canal and have tho debate about
It afterwards, which seemed to him
better than to begin with Indefinite
debate and have no canal nt all. This
is a view which posterity both at
home and abroad will accept and ap
prove." Referring to Roosevelf's fight for
preparedness before the United States
entered the world war. Senator Lodge
"He would have had us protest and
take action at the very beginning In
1914 when Relglum was invaded. He
would have had us go to war when
the murders of the Lusltanla were
perpetrated. He tried to stir the
soul and rouse the spirit of the Am
erican people, and despite every ob
stacle he did nwaken them, sb that
when the hour came In April 1917 a
large proportion of the Americanpeo
ple were even then read.w In spirit and
"How- telling his work has been
was proved by the confession of his
country's enemies, for when he died,
the only discordant note, the only
harsh words, came from the German
press. Germany knew whose voice It
was that had more powerfully than
any other called Americans to the
baltle In behalf of freedom and civili
zation." Recause ho was not permitted to
go to Kurope at the head of a body
of soldiers, said Mr. Lodge, Roose
velt "was denied the reward which
he would have ranked above all oth
ers, 'the great prize of death In bat
"He lived to see right prevail" con
tinued the Senator. "He lived to see
civilization triumph over organized
barbarism, and there was great Joy
In bis heart. In all his last days the
thoughts which filled his mind were
to secure n peace which should rend
er Germany forever harmless and ad
vance the cause of ordered freedom
In every land nod among every race.
This occupied him to the exclusion of
everything else except what he called
and what we like to call American
Ism. There was no hour down to
the end when he would not turn aside
from everything else to preach the
doctrine of Americanism, ot tho prin
ciples nnd tho faith upon which Am
erican government rested and which
all true Americans should wear In
their heart of hearts.
"He was n ereat patriot, a great
man; nhovo all, a great American.
His country was the 'ruling, master
ing passion of his life, from the be
ginning even unto the end, -
"What a man was Is ever nioro
importnnt than what he did, Theo
dore Roosevelt always believed that
charactor was of greater worth and
moment than anything elso. He nos
epsed abilities of the first order,
which he was disposed to under-rne
because ho set so much groater store
upon tbo moral dualities which wo
bring together under the slnglo word
