President Roosevelt Formally Notified
of His Nomination
ACCEPTS THE TRUST OF HIS PARTY
One Hundred and Twenty-Five Per
sons, Including Relatives and
Friends, Were. Present at the Cere
mony, Which Was Held on the
Veranda of Sagamore Kill.
Oyster Bay, L. -, Special.-Theo
dore Roosevelt Wednosday formally
opened the political campaign of 1904
ai* his beautiful country h<sme, Sag
amor? Hill. Standing on a spot made
dear by the associations ot a life time,
surrounded by his family and relatives
and friends, he formally received and
accepted the nomination of the Re
publican party for President of the
Speaker Cannon and his committee
of notification, together with many of
invited guests, arrived here on a spe
cial train from New York. The attend
ance of the members of the committee
was notably large, regrets being re
ceived from?only three, James N. Com
bes, of Florida; Senator Chauncey M.
Depew, of New York, and Senator
Clarence N. Clark, of Wyoming. In
all, about 125 persons were present at
President Roosevelt personally re
ceived the members of the committee
and other guests as they arrived at
Sagamore Hill. He knew almost every
man personally. After the visitors
had been greeted by the President,
Secretary Leob presented each one to
Mrs. Roosevelt and to Miss Alice
Roosevelt. The guests were seated on
the veranda, where the ^notification
ceremony was held. As Speaker Can

President Rooosevelt stood at his right
hand, giving close attention to the
Mrs. Roosevelt,' surrounded by her
children, Kermit, Ethel and Quentin,
stood facing Mr. Cannon, almost in the
centre of the crowd. Mr. Cannon was
interrupted frequently by applause. He
spoke as follows:
flR. CANNON SPEAKS.
Mr. President: The people of the
United States, by blood, heredity, edu
cation and practice, are a self-govern
ing people. We have sometimes been
subject to prejudice and embarrass
ment from harmful conditions, but we
have outgrown prejudice and overcome
conditions as rapidly as possible, hav
ing due regard?to law and the rights
of individuals. We have sometimes
made mistakes, from a false sense of
security or from a desire to change
policies instead of letting well enough
alone, merely to see what would hap
pen, but we have always paid the pen
alty of unwise action at the ballot-box
and endured the suffering until, under
the law. through the ballot box, we
haye returned to correct policies. No
nation" nas so successfully solved all
problems and chosen proper policies as
our nation. Under the lead of the Re
publican party for-over forty years,
the United States from being a third
class power among the nations Las
become in every respect first. The
people rule. The people ruling, it is
necessary that they ifould be com

upon the products of foreign countries
seeking our markets, which replenish
ed our treasury, but were so. adjusted
as to encourage our people in develop

industries, at the same time protect
ing our citizens laboring in production
against competition of foreign labor.
Under this policy our manufactured
product today in one-third of the pro
duct of the civilized world, and our
people receive almost double the pay
for their labor that similar labor re
ceives elsewhere in the world, there
by enabling us to .bear the burdens of
Mr. Cannon spoke also upon the Re
publican doctrine of protection and in
cidentally brought forward the other
issues of the campaign. His speech was
heartily cheered by those present.
PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT SPEAKS.
President Roosevelt responded in r
speech of a little more than three thov
sand words, and said in part:
Mr. 'Speaker and Gentlemen of the
I am deeply sensible of the high hon
or conferred upon me by the represen
tatives of the Republican party assem
bled in convention, and I accept the
nomination for the Presidency with
solemn realization of the obligations I
assume. I heartily approve the decla
ration of principles' which the Repub
lican National Convention has adopted
and at some future day I shall com
municate to you, Mr. -Chairman, more
at length and in detail a formal written
acceptance of the nomintion.
Three years ago I became President
because of the death of my lamented
predecessor. I then stated that it was
my purpose to carry out his principles
and policies for the honor and thc in
terest of the country. To the best of my
ability I have kept the promise thus
made. If next November my country
men confirm at the polls the action of
the convention you represent, I shall,
tinder Providence, continue to work
with eye single to the welfare of all
A party is of worth only in so far as
it promotes the national interest, and
every .official, high or low, can serve
bis party best by rendering to the peo
ple the best service of which he is capa
ble. Effective government comes only
?s the result of the loval co-operation
yf many differtut persons. The mem
bers of a legislative majority, the offi
.'crs in the various departments of the
Administration, and the Legislative and
Executive branches as toward? each
other, must work together with subor
dination of self to the common end of
successful government. We who have
been entrusted with power as public
servants during the past seven years of
administration and legislation now
come before the people content to be
judged by our record of achievement.
In the years that have gone by we have
made the deed square with the word;
and if we are continued in power wo
shall unswervingly follow out the great
lines of public policy which the Repub
lican party nas already laid down; a
public policy to which we are giving,
and shall give, a united, and therefore
an efficient, support '
\a all of this we are more fortunate
than our opponents, who now appeal
for confidence on the ground, whic?
some express and some seek to have
confidentially understood, that if tri
umphant they may be trusted to prove
false to every principle which in the
last eight years they have laid down
as vital, and to leave undisturbed those
very acts of the administration because
! of which they ask that the administra
tion itself be driven from power. Seem
ingly their present attitude as to their
* past record ls that some of them were
1 mistaken and others insincere. We
! make our appeal in a wholly different
spirit. We are not constrained to keep
silent on any vital question; we are di
vided on no vital question; our policy
is continuous, and is the same for all
sections and localities. There is noth
ing experimental about the government
we ask the people to continue in power,
for our performance in the past, our
proved governmental efficiency, is a
guarantee as to our promises for the
future. Our opponents, either openly
or secretly, according to their several
temperaments, now ask the people to
trust their present promises in consi
deration of the fact that they intend to
treat their past promises aB null and
void. We know our own minds, and we
have kept .of the same mind for a suf
ficient length of time to give to our
policy coherence and canity. In such a
fundamental matter as the enforcement
of the law we do not have to depend
upon promises, but merely to ask that
our record be taken as an earnest of
what we shall continue to? do. In deal
ing with the great organizations known
as trusts, we do not have to explain
why the laws were not enforced, but
to point out that they actually have
been enacted to increase the effective
ness of their enforcement. We do not
have to propose to "turn th rascals
out;" for we have shown in very deed
that whenever by diligent investigation
a public official can be founa who has
betrayed his trust he will be punished
to the full extent of the law without
regard to whether he was appointed
under a Republican or a Democratic
administration. This is the efficient
way to turn the rascals out and to keep
them out, and it has the merit of sin
cerely. Moreover the betrayals of trust
in the last seven years have been in
significant in number when compared
with the extent of the public service.
Never has the administration of the
government been on a cleaner and
higher level; never' has the public
work of the nation been done more
honestly and efficiently.
The President then discussed the is
sues of protection, reciprocity and our
foreign policy at some length.
He said further:
"We earnestly desire friendship with
all the nations of the New and Old
Worlds; and we endeavor to place our
relations with them upon a basis of re
ciprocal advantage instead of hostility.
We hold that the prosperity of each
nation is an aid and not a hinderance
to the prosperity of other nations. Wo
seek international amity for the same
reasons that make us believe in peace
within our own borders; and we seek
thi3 peace not because we are afraid or
unready, but because we think that
peace is right as well as advantageous.
American interests in the Pacific
have rapidly grown. American enter
prise has laid a cable across this, the
greatest of aceans. We have proved in
effective fashion that we wish tho
"Chinese Empire well and desire its in
tegrity and independence.
Our foothold in the Philippines
greatly strengthens our position in the
competition for thc trade of the East;
but we are governing the Philippines in
the interest of the Philippine people
themselves. We have already given
them a large share in their government
and our purpose is to increase this
share as rapidly as they give evidence
of increasing fitness for the task. The
great majority of the officials of the
islands, whether elective or appointive,
are already native Filipinos. We ire
now providing for a legislative assem
bly. This is the first step to be taken
in the future; and it would be eminent
ly unwise to declare what our next
step will be until this first step has
been taken and the results are mani
fest. To have gone faster than we have
already gone in giving the islanders a
constantly increasing measure of self
constantly incicasing measure of self
government would have been disas
trous. At the present moment .to give
political independence to the islands
would result in the immediate loss of
civil rights, personal liberty and pub
lic order, as regards the mass o?_the_l
Filipino?,-for- -thc ninjurtxy- or" the i's-"
fanciers have been given these great
boons, by us, and only keep them be
cause we vigilantly safeguard and
guarantee them. To withdraw our
government from the islands at this
time would mean to thc average native
the loss of his barely-won civil free
dom. We have established in the is
lands a government by Americans as
sisted by Filipinos. We arc steadily
striving to transform this into self
government by the Filipinos assited
The principles which we uphold
ohould appeal to all our countrymen,
ir. all portions of our country. Above
oil they should give us strength with
the men and women who are spiritual
heirs of those who uphold the hands of
Abraham Lincoln; for we are striving
to do our work in the spirit with which
Lincoln approached his. During the
soven years that have just passed there
is ho duty, domestic or foreign, which
we have shirked; no necessary task
which we have feared to undertake, or
which we have not performed with
^sonable efficiency. We have never
.aded importence. We have never
.iight refuge in criticism and com
plaint instead of action. We face the
future with our past and our presen I
ns guarantors of our promises; and we
are content to stand or to fall by tne
record which we have made and arc

. the Minister of the Interior in a
Crowded Thoroughfare Near a Rail
road Station in St Petersburg.
St. Petersburg, By Cable.-M. Von
Plehve, Minister of the Interior, was
assassinated at 9:50 o'clock Thursday
morning by a bomb thrown afchis car
riage while he was driving to the
Baltic station to take a train for the
palace at Peterhoff, where he was to
make his weekly report to the Em
The assassination is believed to be
the outcome of a widespread plot, tho
existence of which has beep, suspect
ed for several days. Numerous ar
rests have been made, including that
of the assassin, a young man who ia
believed to be a Finn named Leglo,
and who is now in a hospital, severe
ly and perhaps fatally injured by the
explosion of his own bomb. An ac
complice of Leglo, also apparently a
Finn, but whose name is unknown,
has been arrested. He had in his
possession a bomb, which he tried
to throw, but he was overpowered by
the police just in time to prevent
great loss of life.
The assassin wore a brown overcoat
and a railroad official's cap. He
stood on the sidewalks just as Minis
ter Von Plehve's carriage was about
to cross the canal bridge near the
station. The minister was escorted
by a number of detectives on bicycles,
end one of them jostled the assassin,
who then rushed into the road and
threw the bomb after the carriage.
The missie struck the hind wheel
and exploded with.fearful force, kill

sons. Minister Von Pleve and his
coachmen were killed outright, and
an officer of the guard was fatally in
One of the cyclist detectives arrested
the assassin, who endeavored to escape,
though wounded by splinters in the
face, arm and abdomen. He made no
attempt to resistance, however, when
seized by the detectives, and confessed
his crime, but refused to give his
The police, immediately after the
explosion, arrested a suspicious indi
vidual who took refuge in a hotel op
r site the scene of the tragedy. He
carried a bomb similar to that thrown
by Leglo. As soon as the police saw
the bomb they scattered, but an em
ploye of the hotel rushed up behind
the accomplice and pinned his arms.
The explosive is believed to have
been composed of pyroxylin, as it gave
off little smoke. The force of the
explosion was so terrific that it not
only broke every window within a
radius of half a mile, but reduced the
heavy paving stones to powdery-sheaved
up the pavement and flung a v heaver,
-piafo n?.the.iron work of the carriage"
across the canal, sev?ring the thick
mast of a barge, which fell, stunning
the captain of the barge. Everybody
in the street was knocked down and
more or less bruised.
When the officers of the law, headed
by Minister of Justice Muravieff. had
terminated the necessary formalities
by drawing up a written report of
the crime, the mangled remains of the,
Minister of the Interior were conveyed'
to a humble chapel, adjoining the
station, the windows of which miracuf,
lously escaped destruction. The priest^
and people, with characteristic Russian
piety, at once jor ad in a solemn re;

tion was filled with a reverent crowd
of peasants and laborers, and the busj

lifted up his voice and proclaimed
"The eternal memory of the departed
servant Wenceslas," while all those in
the congregation dropped to their)

F-n was favored by the fact that traffic
here is always of the heaviest, owing
to the crossing of lines cf surface cars
and the continuous stream of hp<wy/
trucks. M. Von Plehve was .ya
apprehensive of attempts upon . life
and used to drive as rapidly as possi
ble. The coachman, however, was
compelled to go slowly at this point. ,
The assassin in laying his plans evi
dently foresaw this circumstance and,
vi hile the Minister's coachman slowed
down, threw the bomb. The explosion
'.vas terrific and practically annihilated
.;he woodwork of the carriage.
The horses tore off, dragging the
axle and the front wheels. The ani
mals, though infuriated by the wounds
they had sustained, had not galloped'
'far before they fell, with pools of
blood under them.
The Minister's servant, who was also
on the carriage box, was badly wound
ed, and two officers who were driving
by in a cab were injured by flying I
splinters. The assassin himself was j
wounded in on? eye.
British Officials Aroused.
London, By Cable.-The British gov
ernment is taking energetic action in
the case of the sinking of the British
steamer Knight Commander by the
Vladivostock squadron. Information re
ceived by the government tends to es
tablish in the official mind a belief that
an outrage has been committed for
which no excuse exists in international
law. Those aware of the feelings of the
ministry said tonight that all members
of the cabinet are in one accord re
garding the principle of the inviolality
ci innocent neutral shipping as well as
upon the principle that a neutral ship
cannot be destroyed, even if carrying
contraband of war.

FIRE AT SWIFT'S PACKING HOUSE
Considerable Damage By Blaze That
Threatened Greater Loss.
Chicago, Special.-Fire broke out
among the packing houses in the stock
yards in the large refinery of Swift* &
Company, and soon gained such head
. way that every available fire engine in
the stockyards district was called out.
Rumors of incendiarism were rife. Ex
aminations, however, showed the cause
of the blaze to have been an overheat
ed dynamo. The building, 150 by 250
feet and three stories in height was
filled with tierces of lard many of
which exploded, spreading the burning
grease in every direction. The damage
was principally confined to the upper
part of^the building. According to Lou

MILLS TO CURTAIL
i Agreement By Southern Manufactur
ers to Reduce Their Output
TO CUT PRODUCTION 25 PER CENT.
Cotton Spinners From Southern
States Are Practically Unanimous
in the Decision to Reduce Produc
tion One-Fourth During the
i Months of August and September.
' Greenville, S. C., Special.--By a
vote which ws practically unanimous,
cotton spinners from North Carolina,
South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and
Mississippi who met here Tuesday,
d?cid?e, to curtail production 25 per
cent, or to a basis of 75 per cent, dur
ing the months of August and Septem
ber. This action was due to the un
settled condition of the cotton mar
ket and to the poor demand, both
from home dealers and exporters.
The Question of curtailment was the
most important matter considered at
the meeting, which was largely attend
ed, especially by South Carolina mill
men. Colonel Jas. Lu Orr, president
of the Piedmont Manufacturing Com
pany, presided. The special committee
appointed at the Spartanburg confer
ence to ascertain the extent of cur
tailment now existing showed the fol
lowing: North Carolina 50 per cent.;
South Carolina, 26 1-2 per cent.; Geor
gia, 25 per cent.; 'Alabama, 25 per
cent.; Mississippi, 25 per cent.
After brief discussion the following
resolution was adopted; the vote being,
2,183,052 spindles for and 106,096 spin
"That the mills present agree that
production shall be reduced during the
months of August and September 25
per cent by either running all of tho
machinery 75 per cent, of the time, or
stopping 25 per cent, of the machinery
ali the time, as may be most advan
tageous to the respective mills, the
object being to limit production to 75
per cent, of normal, and they further
earnestly recommend that all the cloth
mills in the States of North Carolina,
South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama
which are no'; curtailing to this ex
tent, shall do so for the months of
August and September."
It was further agreed that the man
ufacturers would not pay freight be
yond New York, on goods destined to
bleach eries and that the bills should
be paid within ten days from date of
shipment or date of invoice.
A rate schedule for the month of
August was adopted and the prices
were fixed, below which the mills will
not sell. A committee was appointed
to notify the mills of any changes in
prices. Commission houses will be
notified of this tariff.
Telegrams were received from South
Carolina manufacturers indicating a
material improvement in the condition
of the cotton goods market since the
Spartanburg conference, when new:
higher prices were agreed upon.

has been known since that only the
decree of Judge Parker in favor of
some other man,or the consent of Sen
ator Gorman to accept the place, could
prevent the selection of Mr. Taggart.
Neither of these contingencies arose
and the Indiana man was unanimously

Lydia EL Pinkham's Vegetable Compound*
" DEAR MRS. PECKHAM : - There are but few wives and mothers who
have not at times endured agonies and such pain as only women know.
I wish such women knew the value of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound. It is a remarkable medicine, different in action from any
I ever knew and thoroughly reliable.
" I have seen cases where woiflen doctored for years without perma
nent benefit, who were cured in less than three months after taking your
Vegetable Compound, while others who were chronic and incurable
came out cured, happy, and in perfect health after a thorough treatment
with this medicine. I have never used it myself without gaining great
benefit. A few doses res ores my strength and.appetite, and tones up
the entire system. Your medicine has been tried and found true, hence
I fully endorse it."-MRS. R. A. ANDERSON, 225 Washington St., Jack
. Mrs. Reed, 2425 E. Cumberland St., Philadelphia, Pa., says : '
"DEAR MRS. PINKHAM: - I feel it my duty
to write and tell you the good I have received
from Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
"I have been a great sufferer with female
trouble, trying different doctors and medicines
with no benefit. Two years ago I went under
an operation,, and it left me in a very weak
condition. I had stomach trouble, backache,
headache, palpitation of the heart, and was very
nervous; in fact, I ached all over. I find
v? Ti Y*it ^^^i^W^s^ yours is the only medicine that reaches
I SM Vi IV TBKT?wKt sucu troubles, and would cheerfully rec
vST U 11 * v? ? If I ommend Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
" 'i J V ' Compound to all suffering women."
When women are troubled with irregular or painful menstruation, weak
ness, leucorrhcea, displacement or ulceration of the womb, that bearing-down
feeling, inflammation of the ovaries, backache, flatulence, general debility,
indigestion, and nervous prostration, they should remember there is one tried
and true remedy. Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound at once
removes such troubles.
The experience and testimony of some of the most noted
women of America go to prove, beyond a question, that Lydia' E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound will correct all such trouble at
once by removing thc cause and restoring the organs to a healthy
and normal condition. If in doubt, write Mrs. Pinkham at Lynn,
Mass, as thousands do. Her advice is free and helpful.
Nb other medicine for women in the world has received such wide- .
spread and unqualified endorsement. Ko other medicine has such a
record of cures of female troubles. Refuse to buy any substitute.
FORFEIT ii we cannot forthwith produco the original letters and signatures of
al?V? testimonials, which will prove their absolute ?eiiuinoness..
