and, sprlngtng to lils feet, applauded vigorously and demandcd on encoro.
By this tlmo tho greal stand had filled. Ou tlie front row In boxes
were the great dlplomata of forelgn countries. On Uio Presldont's right
were the English Ambassador nnd Mrs. Dryce, the French ambassador,
the Austriii-Htingary ambassador, the'Japaneso ambassador and tho varlous
secretarles of legations ancl their wlves. ln a box snt "Uncle Joc" Cannon,
who, although not always a friend of tho exposition, seemed ns onthu

nilnisters sat the forelgn army und navy officers, spreadlng oul llke a gold
band between the President and the clvilians in the roar of the stand.
ln a box sat Senator Daniel, of Virginia, nnd at lhe cucls were tho
varlous Governors of States. with members of their staffs.
PRESEXTS MH. ROOSEVEI/T.
Introduclng the President, Mr. Tucker said:
Ladies aud Gentleinen.? t stand beforo you to-day a Ilvlng monument
to the self-control of tho President of the Unlted States. Had be poBsessi 1
less of this virtue than ho does, I should long slnce have been numbered
with those whose history is finally wrltten; for, ln season and out o[ Bea
son. by day and by night ancl nt all hours, beginning wlth Mny nnd endlng
with the close of April. have I, wlthout conscience, bombarded him with
rcquests, invoked hls aid, and sought hls counsel in tlie interest. of t he
Jamestown Exposltlon, until I doubt not that ln tlio quiot hours of his seclu
sion < if he has any) ho has often asked lilmself the question, whethor life
was really worth Hving. Had he slain mo in tho exercise of tho law of
self-defense, even wltbout the interposition of tho plon of "demcntia
Americana," he would qulckly have been acqulttcd by any jury on the
ground of justinable hoinicide.
AVhen the history of this exposition is wrltten, there will bo man.'.
whose friends wlll claim that each of them has done more than any one
else for its developmen'., and theso conflicting clalms mny havo to bo refer?
red to tho jury uf awanls for final deterniination. The names of Fltz Lee,
Daniel ancl Maynard; of Johnston, Myers and Cottrell; of Wool, Ellyson
and Shepperd; of Sherwood. Southgate aad Martin; of Batchelor, Harrlng
ton ancl Grant, will each find many advocates, and justly so. for this hlgh
honor. Theso men of valor, by their patriotic devotion to and defense of
this work, have each undoubtedly slnin their thousands; but thc President,
our David, unholmeted and unarmored. has slaln his leim of thousands,
And so, wlth jri'eat pleasure, I will now satlsfy your wait ing hearts by
prcsenting to you tho one man in the United States who has had greater
opportunitlea than any other for advanr
ing tliis entorprlse. Selali! and lias novor
