Jamestown Exposition Now m
PRESIDENT PRESSES BUTTON
The President Introduced by Presi
dent Tucker, of the Exposition
Company, Who Declared That the
: Executive's Name Would go_ Down
in History os the Greatest Advo
cate of the Great Event.
Norfolk, . y?., - Special.-President
R??sev?Tty the diplomaEic, naval and
military representative of S7 of- Lho
nations of tue wprld. and the Govern
ors of a score of States', participated
.tu the opening; execises of the James
town Ter-centenuial 'Exposition.
While the exposition, which is to re
main open until November 30th next,
is still far from complete, the un
finished condition of buildings and:
grounds was not allowed to interfere
in any way with* the celebration of
the three hundredth anniversary of
the first English settlement in Ameri
ca. . From the firing of a salute of
100 guns by. the United States army,
through the picturesque beauty of the
review of the international fleet of
war vessels anchored in / Hampton
.IJgads, through the ceremonies of
dedication at which the President
spoke and. down to a'late "hour when
the' .chief'/executive repaired aboard
?he naval yacht Sylph t?4 spend_tbe
night *ih the lower bay,'the day was
crowded with notable incident.
.Not ; the. least impressive of the
day's events was the quick action of
the President in assuming command
of the situation in front of the crowd
ed grandstand from which he spoke
when a panic seized the surging
throng of spectators. Pressed against
the guard ropes by thousands of eag
er persous in the rear of the gather
ing who were forcing their way for
ward, the safety of life and limb of
those who had the more favored posi
tions were endangered. President
Rosevelt had just been introduced by
Harry St. George Tucker, the head of
the Jamestown Expositon Company,
when the disorder and unrest in the
crowd reached its height and the civil
guards in front of \'ie grandstand
seemed about to be swept from theil
posts. With ..the agility of a school
boy,-the President jumped upon the
table '"which had been placed in the
speaker's -balcony and waving his
arms cried out to the men of Vir
ginia to live up to their traditions of
galantry and cease .the pushing and
crowding which was threatening the
lives/of the women and children in i
the -'asemjblage, a throng which all but
blocked the big grass-covered plaza
known as Lee's Parade.
The ceremonies of dedication were

ici>aov ciiuea me President re
paired again to the grand stand from
which he reviewed a parade of Unit
ed Stales,soldiers and sailors. Sea-'
men from the visiting fleets were ex
pected to take part in the parade, but
the difficulties of landing on the un
completed grounds prevented. The pa
rade was quickly over and a reception
by the President in the auditiorium
brought the day's events at the fair
orou?ds to a close.
'. The addresses of President Roose
velt and President T?cher of thc
Jamestown Exposition Company were
both nf a high order and were atten
tively listened to by an immense
crowd of people. The opening cere
monies were, fully up to the highest
expectations of those in attendance.
President Roosevelt, bein? intro
duced, delivered a strong and patriot
ic address to the immense ' throng
present. His speech was of too great
length to be given here in full. The
following, however, are some of his
most striking thoughts.
"At the outset I wish to say a word
of special greeting to the representa
tives of the foreign governments here
present. Thy have- come to assist ns
in celebrating what was in very truth
the birthday of this nation, for it
was hore, that the colonists, first set

from their own loins and by the addi
tion of newcomers from abroad, was
to make the people which 160 years

i-epresentativcs of our sister republics

pect, your interests and ours are iden
tical. Your problems and ours are in
Iorgo part the same; and as we strive
to settle them, I pledge you herewith
cn the part of this nation the heart
iest friendship and good will."
"Finally, let me say a special word
of greeting to those representatives^
thc Asiatic nations who make up thal
newest East which is yet thc most
ancient East, the East of time im
memorial. In particular, let rae ex
press a word of hearty welcome tc
the representatives of thc mighty is
land empire of Japan; that empire,
which, in learning from the West, has
shown that it had so much, so ver>
much, to teach the West in return.
"To all of you here gathered I ex
press my thanks for your coming, ano
I. extend to you "my earnest wishes
for tho welfare of your several na

PRES FINLEY SPEAKS
Southern 's' .Executive Delivers Ad
dress Before Number of Represen
tative Business Men Under Aus
pices of Mobile Oommercial Club.
Mobile, -.Ala., Special-President
W. W. findley, of the Southern
Ballway delivered an address before
a large number of representative-busi
ness men uudeV the auspices of the
Mobile Commercial Club. He was
introduced'. ;by Vice President E. L.
Russell, of the Mobile & Ohio Rail
road. President Finlay said in part:
"The commerce of the United
States with!the Latin-American coun
tries is np>v growing more rapidly
than that with any other part of the
world and the completion, of the
Panama canal wil give a great im
petus to the. development of all the
countries soyth ?f the Rio Grande.
"There are only two ways of reach
ing marketsif-rail and water. Neith
er is Sufficient alone. Water trans
portation is 'liot adequate for interior
commerce, npr by itself for coaswise
or for forest commerce. - Rail trans
portation miijst stop at the shores of
?t ?. .
, "It would-be jiist as logical for the
people to array themselves against
water transportation or to undertake
to hamper, and cripple it as it is for
them to arja^themselves against rail
roads and toifkvor success which will
hamper 'and ^ripple them.
"I think it: is apparent that any
public policy i/toward- the railroads
which limits.rtheir power to increase
their facilities, and their carrying ca
pacity to keep pace with, or to even
anticipate th?- active production . of
the Southern; people, is destructive of
the best interests-of the vital inter
ests-of the people themselves;
"It is unnecessary to point out TO
intelligent business men that thc pow
er of railroads to increase their fa
cilities is dependent upon their earn
ing capacity a:nd their credit or ?hat
their credit is dependent upon sus
tained earning capacity. The roads
cannot expect to earn enough from
their current -operations to provide
themselves with the facilities abso
lutely essential in the interest of our
people.. The monev must be borrow
ed- . .
"I do not believe, that, with a full
knowledge of the facts and with a
full appreciation of the destructive
consequences.to. the railroads, to their
revenues, and to their . capacity fo
serve the public, either the Govern
or the Legislature would have favor
ed the legislation in question and
when the true facts are known, I.have
supreme confidence that the course

home of his father, Sheriff M. K.
Estes, in the village of Lovingston.
It was conducted by the pastor of the
Lovingston Methodist church. Rev.
H. F. B. Martin. The burial services
were in charge of Lovingston Lodge,
No. 265. of the Independent Order of
Odd Fellows, of which the young man
was a member.
Dragging Story Questioned.
At "first the drugging story was ac
cepted without question, but non
there are persons who hold that the
only drug used in accomplishing Miss
Loving's downfall was whiskey. The
Estes and those in sympathy willi
them deny that there was an assault,
and point to vouncr Estes' behaviour
after his return as inconsistent with
any other view. He himself procured
the physician for the young lady, and
the next day went about his business
with entire, unconcern. General re
gret is expressed that Judge Loving
did not allow young Estes an oppor
tunity to explain, and some say that
he shot too soon. ' Criticism, has been
made of the smallness of the bail
bond. The case bids fair to excite
as much interest in this section as thc
Strother-Bywaters - tragedy.
Salaries of Rural Carriers.
General Meyer has approved the de
tailed adjustment of salaries of rural
free delivery cariers, as submitted
by Assistant Postmaster General Do
Graw, and the new schedule which
will become effective Julyl next will
make a graded increase in the com
pensation of carriers of from 9 lo
25 per cent., based upon the number

Great Pier in Baltimore Harbor
THREE DEAD AND 16 MISSING
General Superintendent Edson, bf
Baltimore Bridge Company,
Among the Injured, Being Caught
While Warning Workmen, off the
Baltimore, Special.-A section of
the new pier being erected at the im
migration station- at Locust Point,
South Baltimore, for the Baltimore
& Ohio Railroad for the use of the
North German Lloyd Steamship-Com
pany, collapsed Saturday, carrying
down between 20 and 25 men of Avhoni
three are known to be dead, 1G miss
ing and 15 injured, most of them la
borers. Among the last named is ,W.
N. Edson, general superintendent of
Ihe Baltimore Bridge Company,
which had charge" of the steel con
struction. He was caught while
warning the workmen off the pier.
The dead so far as known are:
Howard L. Eilender, Baltimore,
Tony Wolf, Baltimore.
Robert Sweetman, Woodberry.
Eilender lost his life trying to save
[ the men on the outer end of the pier.
Superintendent Edson, who was in
jured in the performance of the same
vessel, was not seriously hurt.
All the victims were employes of
the Baltimore Bridge Company. This
was a two-story building 1,000 feet
! long and its estimated cost was $400,
000. About 4S0 feet of it sank.
Warning of the disaster was heard
several days ago when' the piles to
ward the end of the pier began set
tling and vigorous efforts were being
made to save the structujl?.
Saturday shortly before the disas
ter occurred the piles began settling
in such an alarming manner that or
ders to leave the place were circulat
ed among the fifty odd workmen and
it is due to this fact that the casual
ties were not greater. Those caught
were on the end of the pier on \he
The falling of the pier into the
water created a tremendous wave in
the harbor and led many persons lo
believe there had been an earthquake.
At Speddens ship yard, directly
across the harbor from Locust Point,
the water suddenly dropped eight
feet, throwing two men overboard
from a marine railway. They were
rescued with difficulty.'

Harrisburg, Special. - Fire here
Thursday afternoon destroyed two
residences on Depot.Hill, resulting in
a loss of over $5,000. The fire start
ed from a spark from a traction eu

house owned by the heirs of Gusta

was owned by Lewis Poynes. .
Child Labor Bill Passed.
Tallahassee, Fla., Special-The
Senate passed the child labor bill by
a majority of two and the measure
is now to go before the House.
Sentiment against child labor has
been carefully nurtured in Florida by
the labor unions, for in no city ex
cept Tampa is child labor employed
to any degree. A strong lobby has
worked against the measure on the
ground that it would legalize the idle
ness of the negro youth, which is
profitably employed in the fish and
oyster factories along the coast. It
is likely that the measure will pass
