Xnw York, O.-t. 2. Admiral Dewey
let the Waldorf-Astoria to-day about
l.:io o'clock on his journey to Wash-iugt-jn.
The trip from Jersey City to
Washington wjs made on the most
elaborate bpecia! train ever run by the
I'cuu.-ylvaui.i railroad. Admiral Dew
tyV pergonal party consisted of him
self, his Mm, George B. Dewey: his
brother, Charles Dewey and wife; Cap
tain lamberton and his wife; Flag Lieu

well. A special private car was pro
vided for the admiral. In addition the
following naval officers, as special guests
also accompanied the party:
Hear Admirals Sampson, Schley,
Philip and Casey; Captains C. D. Sigs

E. P. Wood and Ensign E. L. Bennett.
lieu. Miles also was iu the party.
The functions and the receptions that
have figured so prominently in the daily
life of Admiral Dewey since his arrival
off Sandy Hook last Tuesday morning
have proven almost too much for his
strength. The admiral has been under
such a perpetual physical and nervous
strain that he is now almost exhausted.
Saturday's ceremonies were the most
taxing on his strength of any that he
has yet had to undergo, and he appeared
Sunday looking pale and worn. Despite
the tact that he retired early Saturday
evening and enjoyed a good night's rest,
the admiral Sunday was too fatigued
to do more than remain in his room the
greater part of the time and rest
At 10 o'clock Admiral Dewey had an
engagement to meet the Chicago Dewey
rummittee and before he came down
MU'a message to ilaynr Carter Har
riscn requcatiuir that ho bo not expected
to sliake hands with the members of ttie
luiiiniittee. The admir.il explained this
n-quest by saying that ho had had so
much handshaking on Saturday that his
hand pained him severely.
Admiral Dewey rose early Sunday
morning, however, sending tor a cup of
tea abuut six o'clock. Shortly after he
ordered a light breakfast which was
sent to his apj-artmeuts and which he
ate alone. When the admiral had
finished his breakfast he sent tor his
private physician Dr. Percy, who was
cloeeted with him tor a few minutes.
Admiral Dewey later called on the mem
bers of his family and his relatives and
chatted witn them for fuily an hour.
He received Mayor Van Wyck about
9 o'clock. Mayor Van Wyck acted as
the escort of the admiral throughout the
day. He was present in the admiral's
room, be escorted him down to 'the par
lor where the Chicago delegation was to
be received, and was the only repre
sentative ot the city in caring for its
Thero vere,inany callers at die Wal
dorf who wi.-hed to send cards to Ad

to do so, the admiral's fatigue being
given as the reason. During the early
part of the day the only ones who were
honored were tbe members of the Chi
About U:-'j Mayor Carter Harrison,
accompanied by Ira R. Carter, one of
the committeemen, arrived at the hotel.
'"The other members of tho committee
came straggling in, and about 9:o0 they
we 1 u ail present. Tho doors of the big
ballroom on the Waldorf side were
then thrown open and tho members of
the committee, headed by Mayor Harri
son, entered the room. Mayor Harri
son, by iequetseut by Admiral Dewey,
akrd the committee not to shake hands
witn him, as his hand and ana were
About 10 o'clock AdiuiralDewey came
into tho room. He wore a civilian suit
with lrock coat and dark trousers, and
carried no hat. The instant he appeared
there was a bnrt ot applause. He sa
luted and sjuU.
"Good morning, all."
Adui'irai Dcwcy met Mayor Harrison
as he ain:i it witn a cordial greeting.
Mayor kjtnso'i said in part:
"Admiral Devey, 1 appreciate your
dislike for.:i sjeeclies and have, there
lore, none to make. 1 only want to say
that 1 thank you in behalf of the Chi
cago committee lor the honor done us
by your receiving us here tliis morning.
It is an honor second to none in the
lauu. Ami now I wish to extend to
you, on beualf of tlio committee, and
on behalf of the city of Chicago, an
invitation to come to our city. We
wish you to come to us whenever you
may see lie We make no specific time,
but wo would be glad to have you with
ut on Oct. y when President McKinley
is to be present at the laying of the cor
nerstone of our new posto'dice."
Admiral Dewey received the formal
invitation that Mayor Harrison extend
ed to him, alter he (the Mayor; had
finished his talk. Admiral Dewey held
the invitation iu hs hand and turned
its pages. As ho continued to turn over
tho leaves, he glauctd up and said:
"Mr. Mayor and members of the com
mittee, tbe houor is mine. I consider it
a great houor to be waited upon by such
a cclcgation as this, and I consider it a
great honor that the invitation is put iu
such a nice way, allowing me to sot my
own time to visit your city. 1 wish I
could go to your city to-morrow, but
that is impossible. As you know I am
toon due in Washington. Then I must
go to Vermont. I must have some rest,
and 1 have not been there for years. It
is my great regret that I cannot go at
once to your city. I wibh so much 1
could be there when President Mc
Kiuley will be there. I have a great re
rard lor Chicago. It is a great city, and
during tho last year, some of the grand
est letters I have ever received came
"I thank you, Mr. Mayor, and.I thank
you, Chicagoans." '
One man tried to shake hands with
the admiral, but the mayor stopped
him. Admiral Dewey seemed much
embarrassed by the incident, and he
first held out his hand and then with
drew it. Mayor Van Wyck placed his
hand under the elbow of Admiral
Dewey's right arm and escorted him out
through the door. As Admiral Dewey
vr . - leaving the room there was a burst
of applause, and he turned and waved a
saiu:e .vita his band as he disappeared
behind the heavy curtains.
Mayor Harrison expressed Mraself. as
well pleased with Jhe reooDtfon siren
mm and the committee. When asked
if he thought that Admiral Dewey
would go to Chicago, .he looked sur
prised and said:
"Go? of course he will. Didn't he
say he would go some time. That's all
we came for to get his promise to go
whenever he pleased."
Ferdinand W. Peck, United States
commissioner to the Paris exposition,
was among the Chicagoans and said:
" When Admiral Dewey goes to Chi
cago he can have the whole town, the
county and 6tatc"
Early in the morning people began
to crowd into the Waldorf-Astoria and
they were coming and going much of
the day. But none of them was given
the pleasure of seeing Dewey. He was
not down in the corridors of the hotel
at any time. When he was escorted to
the room to meet the Chicago delega
tion he was taken down a private stair
way and returned tbe same way. In
every conceivable manner his move
ments were guarded to keep the curious
crowd from getting near him.
The delegation Ironi Philadelphia,
headed by Mayor Samuel H. Ashbndge,
uiT.ve.l cany in the day, slipped into a
parlor on the Thirty-third street Eide of
tie hotel, and were disposed of in a very
few inmates. The admiral came in,
said "Good morning" to all, and then
greet4.fl Mayor Ashbridge, who lost no
time in telling just what they were
there Tor. He handed the admiral an
album containing the resolutions passed
by the Philadelphia city council, ex
tending the invitation officially and of
fering the freedom of the city. Mayor
'Wo kuo.v that you have many en
gagements, and we do not ask you to
come ac any special time. We can only
assure you that when you do come you
will receive a most hearty welcome."
"Iiieliery much honored," replied
the udiniral, "to receive the invitation.
I will go to Philadelphia, but I cannot
6ay now when I will be there, although
I would be glad to be able to do so."
Before the applause could get a fair
start he had bowed himself out.
l'he PhiUdelphians were grateful at
the result of their visit, and went away
satisfied that they would some day
welcome him in the Quaker city.
Shortly after 11 o'clock the admiral,
in company with Mayor Van Wyck,
went for a drive through Central park
and Kiverside drive. They went iu a
closed carnage and attracted very little
attention. They were back before 1
Tne card clerk at the office sent up
stairs to Admiral Dewey's apartments
se eral hundred cards and refused to
send up nearly as many more. No one
was permitted to disturb the admiral.
About 4 o'clock a narty of three
turned up at the desk and handed three
cards to the clerk. Upon them were
inscribed the names of Captain W. H.
Roedcr, U. S. N., Captain George C.
Reiter, U. S. 2? ., and Charles Cramp of
Philadelphia. The admiral invited
them up and they remained with him
about 20 minutes.
About 7 oclo.-kthcadmiral dmed with
his brother Charles and wife, his sou,
George and Lienteuauts Brumby and
Caldwell. The admiral retired about
'My brother told us today." said
Charles Dewey, later in the day, "that
he did not begin to fully appreciate
the extent and nature of his reception
here until he alighted at the Battery
yesterday morning and started up
Broaa way. Of course he saw the people
lining the river during the naval pa
rade, out he was not close enough to
catch their expression, and that is what
impre6Ned him coming up Broadway.
In speaking cf the parade, he said it
was a magmficen thing to see so many
people smiling and to feel that they
were smiling at him."

constant cnaperouage ot Captain John

they visited the hospitals aud distributed
money among the wounded Filipinos,
after which they made calls and re
ceived visitors at their hotel.
Natives in their Sunday clothing
thronged the Plaza in front of the hotel
all day, stretching their necks toward
the windows for a glimpse of the showy
uniforms ot the envoys. The assemblage
finally increased to a thousand people.

"We desire pe.ace, but peace with in
dependence aLd honor," said General
Alejaudnuo while being interviewed.
He imressed one as dignified and dis
passionate and as a keen man of the
world. He was educated in Europe
aud designed the remarkable entrencn
mtuits from Manila to Tariac. While
reticent concerning his mission,his con
versation threw an interesting light on
the Filipino view of the American atti
tude. "How long can the Filipino army
withstand OJ.UOO American troops':"
"Fighting in our way, we can main
tain a sRue of war and the necessity
for a huge army of occupation indefi
nitely. ou Americans are holding a
few miles around Manila, a narrow
line of railroad to Angeles and a circle
of country around San Fernando. But
you are ignorant ot the resources of
Luion. We hold the immense, rich,
productive northern country from
which to draw. Our peonle contribute
the money and food which maintain
our army, and this is done at a mini
mum ot cost.
"It is au interesting question what
the cost to tho American people is of
maintaining tho American troops in the
Philippines. We do uoj, of course,
know tlio amount, but. if must be ex
cessive. We perceive'wliat an Ameri
can soldier requires iu this climate. On
the other hand, a Filipino exists with a
handful of rice and a pair of linen
trousers. We do not have to pay our
soldiers, and can practically hold np
their w.iges as long as we desire. Even
without our present supply of arms and
ammunition, we could keep your army
occupied for years.
"With au expense that grows daily,
how long will your people stand it? The
Filipino people do not wish to continue
the lighting. We have no army con
tractors. We have no business men
making profits from tile mainten
ance of our army. There is nothing in
it for us, nor are our salaries large
enough to keep us fighting for money
Discussine the question of a recogni
tion by the United States of the so
called luhuino government. General
"The freedom of the American pris
oners who have just been turned over to
you wa decreed by the Filipino con
gress. Your government has accepted
them. It will doubtless accept uny
others that our government may free.''
He inquired concerning the percent
age of sick .American troops, and when
informed said he considered it small.
He asked a number of questions indi
cating a hope of anti-imperialist action
by the United States congress, and in
quired what would lie the effect on the
national policy if congress should de
clare itselr opposed to the prosecution
of the war, and whether anti-imperialist
sentiment was growing in the United
Several inquiries he made also re

.V Mneh Aliased "Word.
The way certain words are misused
and abased should appeal to one. It is
a fact that if any word has tried to
adapt itself to every possible aid im
possible situation "grand" is the one
that has made the attempt. A person
needs but walk about any city to be
confronted with Grand hotels and
Grand View houses. Sometimes it fits
the house which it adorns, sometimes
it seems but a sardonic attempt to make
them seem the more forlorn. It rises to
the sublime and describes the moun
tains, it descends to the level of every
day life and appears as a descriptive
term when the weather is mentioned.

Londo.v, Oct. 2. It was evident that
Buffalo river, the northeastern bound
ary of Natal, is to be the Potomac of
the war. In view ef its strategic value,
josphus Joubert has taken personal
command of the Boer forces there, es
tablishing a strong line of pickets along
the river and has ordered tho natives to
drive in all the stock.
All the available Burghers in tho
neighborhood have been requisitioned,
with the result that some 2,000 have
mobilized at Waldcerstroom, the chief
point of mobilization there.
London, Oct. 2. From all points in
the Transvall, Natal and Cape Colony,
came reports of continued military
activity on the frontier; and, while the
movement of individual commands as
yet do not show concerted plans, it is
evideut that the narrow, wedgelike
strip of Natal, whose apex is crowned
with the ominous name of Majnba Hill,
will be the center of the coming storm.
The Boers established a camp at
Scheepers Nek, near Vryheid, and "they
will mobilize a great force on the Buf
falo river today, which the authorities
at Dundee expect will move across the
border to that spot, probably at once.
It was believed that a conflict at this
point will certainly occur early iu the
