Sppnkorti ill Dinner (llrcn by Sorlplr
of Amcrlcnn Authors.
New York, Mny 25. Ralph Wal
do Kmcrson's birth niul life were
cotntnetnorated in n centennial cele
bration by the Society of American
Authors in the Authors' Gallery of
the Waldorf-Astoria this evening.
More than 200 men and women
came. In connection with the din
ner there was a loan .exhibition of
Kmersoninns various editions of
his books, portraits, busts, corre
spondence nud photographs.
Rastus S. Ransom presided. With
him at the dinner table were Mon
curc D. Conway, Colonel Henry
Wntterson, President JacobG.Schur
man of Cornell, Chancellor Mnc-
Cracken of New York University,
Dr. William T. Harris, United
States Commissioner of Kducation;
, Charles H. Haswcll, S. J. Harrows,
I Henry M. Leipziger, Kdwin Mark
iham, William Nelson and Mark
1 Harvey Liddell. A letter of regret
from Mrs. Julia Ward Howe was
read. A cable message came from
Sir Kdwin Arnold paying his "tri
bute of love and gratitude to Emer
son," and the following dispatch,
dated North Yakima, Wash., was
received from President Roosevelt:
"It is with real regret I find myself
unable to be with you at your din
ner in honor of the memory of the
man to whom American literature,
American philosophy and American
citizenship owe so much."
A message of greeting was also,'
read from a number of pilgrims of
the United States, dining as hosts of
bir Michael Herbert, British
as the oldest living American au
thor, being 94, spoke a few words
of appreciation of the greeting he
received, but he said a weak heart
1 forbade him to speak as he would
like to do.
I President Schurman of Cornell,
in the course of an address, said:
"Kmerson exercises more influence
today, I venture to say, than any
other prophet, sacred or profane,
does at the present time."
Dr. William T. Harris spoke
briefly of the philosophy of Kmer
son. "His optimism," said he, "is
'not of that sort which is satisfied
with what it finds already existing
as a dead result. It rejoices only
in the living progress which is.cn
gaged in putting better in the place
In response to the toast, "The
Ideal in Public Life," Colonel Wat
terson said in part: "There is no
such thing as the ideal in public
life, construing public life to refer
to political transactions. As society
is constituted the ideal has no place,
not even standing room, in the arena
of civics. The painter is a law unto
himself with his little picture, the
poet also with his little poem, his
atelier, his universe, his barnyard,
his field of battle his weapons the
utensils of his craft he, himself,
his own providence. It is not so in
the world of action, where the con
ditions are directly reversed where
the one player contends against
many players, seen and unseen
where each move is met by some
cotititermove where the finest
touches are often unnoted of men,
or rudely blotted out by a mysteri
ous hand stretched forth from the
"Thus, of all human contri
vances the most imperfect is gov
ernment. The science of politics
has yet to be discovered. The ideal
statesman can only exist in an ideal
state. The politician, like the poor,
we have always with us. As long
as men delegate to other men the
function of acting for them, if not
of thinking for them, we shall con
tinue to have him.
"The nearest approach td the
ideal statesman this country has
evolved lived and died here in this
metropolis. If ever a man pursued
an ideal life, he did. From youth
to age he dwelt amid his fancies.
He was truly a man of the world
among men of letters and a man of
letters among men of the world. A
philosopher pure and simple a
lover of books, of pictures, of nil
things beautiful and elevating he
yet attained great riches, and, being 1
a doctrinaire and having a passion
for affairs, he was able to gratify
the aspiration to eminence and the
yearning to be of service to the 1
State which had filled his heart.
Without any of the artifices usual
to the practical politician he grndu-1
ally rose to be a power in his party; '
thence to become the leader of a 1
vast (following; his 119111c was a
shibboleth to millions of his coun
trymen, who enthusiastically sup
ported him, and who believed that
he was elected Chief Magistrate of 1
the United States.
"The ideal in public life is, first
of all and over all, n public opinion
compelling the same moral obliga-,
lion in public as in private affairs;
of a public opinion able todistin-1
gtiish between the spurious and the
real; in short, of a trained intelli
gence sufficiently diffused among
the people to protect them at least
against the grosser forms of decep
tion. We alternately blame and
praise the newspapers; they are pre
cisely what we make them. They ,
will cither grow .wiser and better as ,
leaders, or, ceasing to lead, will be
come mere vehicles of intercom
munication; the editor is only a few1
hours in advance of his readers in '
the knowledge of current events."
KOSK THIRTY FEET.
Fire Hundred Hullillngs Submerged
at KniisiiH City.
Kansas City, May 31. The Mis
souri river has had the woist flood
in its history. The water has risen
thirty feet and submerged five hun
dred buildings on both banks.
There are 6,000 refugees here and
thousands more are destitute. Cars
with provisions on board, including
Pullman dining cars, have been
seized by mobs. Armourdale, Ar
gentine and other near-by towns are
desolated. The loss runs up into
the millions. At the railroad yards
fires have broken out among cars
loaded with lime.
Topeka, Kas., May 31. It is be
lieved that the worst has passed.
The losses here are 200 lives and
millions of property. The city
passed a frightful night. Owing to
a shortage in provisions there is
great distress among the inhabi
tants. No trains are running and
the railroads are blocked. The town
of North Topeka is devastated.
But few homes are left standing in
the northern part. Fortunately the
rain extinguished the fires. Peo
ple have been rescued from sub
merged or floating houses with
great difficulty. Thousands are
homeless and suffering from hunger

New York, N. Y., May 26. In
the trial races held today the de
fender Reliance defeated both the
Columbia and the Constitution.
The new defender was handled in
splendid shape and easily showed
herself to be a superior boat. There"
seems little question that the Reli
ance will be selected to defend the
Warships at Port Arthur.
Loudon, May 29. Russia has or
dered 250,000 tons of coal and is
