GREAT SilOW OPENS
Jamestown Exposition Now in
. full Blast
PRESIDENT PRESSES BUTTON
The President Introduced by Presi
dent Tucker, of the Exposition
Company, Who Declared That the
Executive's Nam? Would go Down
in History os the Greatest Advo
cate of the Great Event.
Norfolk, . Va., Special-President
Roosevelt^ tlie diplomatic, naval and
military representative of 87 of ?.he
nations of the world and the Govern
oVs of a score of States'participated
uv Hie opening execises of the James
town Ter-eentennial "Exposition.
While the exposition, which is to re
main open until November 30th next,
?is still far from complete, the ?u
tinisiied 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
.tygads, through the ceremonies of
dedication at which . the President
spoke and down to a'late hour when (
th? chief'.'executive repaired aboard
Che naval yacht Sylph to spend the
night "iii 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 hy thousands of eag
er persons 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 hy
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 grandstaud
seemed about to be swept from theil
posts. With the agility of a school
boy, the President jumped upon Lite
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
the as.&mblage, a throng which all but
blocked the big grass-covered plaza
known as Lee's Parade.
The ceremonies of dedication were
.me icyaat- enuea me President re
paired again to the grand stand from
which he reviewed a parade of Unit
ed States, soldiers and sailors. Sea
men from the visiting fleets were ex
pected to take part in the parade, but
Hie difficulties of landing on the un
completed grounds prevented. The pa
rade was quickly over and a reception
by the President in the auditorium
brought the day's events at the fair
grounds to a close.
" The addresses of President Roose
velt and President Tucker of the
Jonestown Exposition Company were
botli of 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, being intro
duced, delivered a strong and patriot
ie address to the immense ' throng
present. His speech was of too great
length to be given here in full. The
fallowing, however, are some of h's
most striking thoughts.
"At the outset I wish to say a word
nf special greeting to the repr?senta
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 here that thc colonists first set

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 that
newest East which is yet thc most
ancient East, the East of time im
memorial. In particular, let me ex
press a word of hearty welcome tc

which, in learning from the West, has
shown that it had so much, so ver}

Southern's' Executive Ddivere Ad
dress Before Number of Represen
tative Business Men Under Aus
pices of Mobile Commercial Club.
Mobile, Ala., Special-President
W. W. Findley, of the Southern
Railway delivered an address before
a large number of representative busi
ness men under the auspices of the
Mobile Commercial Club. He AVUS
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 now growing more rapidly
than that with any other part of the
world and the completion of thc
Panama canal wil give a great im
petus to th? development of all thc
countries south 'of the Rio Grande.
"There are only two ways of read
ing marketsir-rail and water. Neith
er is sufficient alone. Water trans
portation is not adequate for interior
commerce, ??or by itself for coaswise
or for foreign commerce. - Rail trans
portation miigt stop at the shores of
, "It would-be just as logical for the
people to airray themselves against
water transportation or to undertake
to hamper arid cripple it as it is for
them to arra$?themselves against rail
roads and toffavor success which will
hamper and "cripple them.
"I think it is apparent that any
public policyKtoward the railroads
which limits itheir power to increase
their facilities; and their carrying ca
pacity to keep- pace with, or to even
anticipate tb'? 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 ro
intelligent business men that the pow
er of railroads to increase their fa
cilities is dependent upon their earn
ing capacity ?nd their credit or ?hat
their credit Ts dependent upon sus
tained earning capacity. The roads
cannot expect to earn enough from
their currents-operations to provide
themselves with the facilities abso
lutely essential in the interest of our
people.. The money must be borrow
"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 to
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 cour.se

H. F. B. Martin. The burial services
were in charge of Livingston Lodge,
No. 2C.r). of the Independent Order of
Odd Fellows, of which the young man
was a member.
Drugging Story Questioned.
At "first the drusrginir stoiy was ac
cepted without question, but now
there are persons who hold that thc
only drug used in accomplishing Misa
Loving's downfall was whiskey. The
Estes and those in sympathy with
them deny that there was an assault,
and point to youmr Estes' behaviour
ofter his return as inconsistent wirb
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 boon
made of the smallness of the bail
bond. The case bids fair to excite
BS much interest in tins section as the

General Meyer bas approved the de
tailed adjustment of salaries ot' rural
free delivery cariers, as submitted
by Assistant Pos!mas!or General De
Graw, and the new schedule which

down a decision in'the rate cases by
which after July 1, passenger rates
on trunk lines arc reduced to two

KATH BY COLLAPSE
Great Pier in Baltimore Harbor
THREE DEAD AND 16 MISSliM
General Superintendent Edson, of
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 whom
three are known to be dead, 16 miss
ing and 15 injured, most of them la
borers. Among the last named is W.
N. Edson, general superintendent of
the Baltimore Bridge Company,
which had charge of the steel con
struction. Ile 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
thc Baltimore Bridge Company. This
was a two-story building 1,000 feet
long and its estimated cosi. 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 struct ujL?.
Saturday shortly before thc 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 the
The falling of the pier into the
water created a tremendous wave in
the harbor and led many persons io
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. Tho;/ were
rescued with difficulty.

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, winch is
profitably employed in the fish and
oyster factories along the coast. It
is likely that the measure will pass
