Washlngton, D. C, Septomber 4.?
Ono noteworthy developmcnt In con?
nectlon wlth tho recent census Is that
of the populatlon of about seventy-Iivo
cities so far reported none shows an ac?
tual loss of populatlon. Inasmuch aa
the avcrago clty growth for thc past
decado was consldorably loss than 1
per cont ln advance of tho 1890-1900
perlod, thls fact Is taken aa indlcatlng
a somowhat moro even dovelopment
than was noted in the prevloua decade,
when of the llst ao far given, Albany,
N. Y.; Lynchburg, Va.; Sioux Clty,
Iowa, and Lanslng, Saglnuw and Bay
Clty, Mlch., were all shown to have sus
talned real loijscs. All of these cltlea
have jolned the galnlng class and somo
of them havo scored heavlly.
The decrease in Albany and Bay City
in 1000 was lesu than 1 per cent. each.
ond both ralllcd beforo the enumerator
made his nppearanco last June, Albany
showlng an Increase of 6_ per cent.
and Bay Clty of 63 per cent. Sloux
Clty. whlch lost 12 per cent. from 1S9
to 1900, now reports a galn of over 44
per cent., whllo Lynchburg, whlch fell
away during the provlous decade to the
extent of 4 per cont, now hhows a galn
of r>6 per cent. Saglnaw, wlth a loss
In 1900 of 9 per cent., made a galn of
19 per cent. ln 1610.
lleiunrkiable Ini-rr.-c.
Not only have there been no losses
during the past ten years, but ln most
caat-B the Increase has been.of consld
erable dlmeiiHions. Albany was the
only clty of the entire number to score
a srain of less than 10 per cent. Indced,
ln only the two other cases of Cincin?
natl, wlth 11.S, and Wllmlngton, Le!.,
with a galn of 14.Z per cent., was the

CROWDS GATHER
AT EVERY STATION
By. Wire They Are Told He
Would Make No Speeches, but
the Yelling People Prevail,
and Roosevelt Cannot
Resist?Spends Night
at Fargo.
Fargo, N. D? September 4.?After an
all-day ride through parts of South
Dakota. Mlnnesola and North Dakota, :
Ex-Presldent Roosevelt reached Fargo
thls evenlng. The people of Fargo
were waiting at the station for him I
and gave him a large welcome. lt
was after nildnight when Colonel
Roosevelt got to bed last nlght, at tho (
concluslon of an arduous day ln Sloux
Falls.
"Like AVeller's ThanksgJvlng turkey,
I am old and tough," uald ho, Just be?
fore he went to bed, "but there aro
Itmlts."
Frlends of Colonel Roosevelt who
have been travellng wlth him have
been astonlshed at hls endurance. He
has attended' breakt.sts before 7
o'clock and dinners which lasted untll
late at nlght, and has made so many
speeches that he cannot even estlmate
the number. But last nlght he admlt?
ted that he was Ured. He instrueled
hls secretary to send telegrams to the
towns through whlch he was to paB.
to-day saylng that as lt was Sunday
he would make no speeches from tho
traln.
The speclal train scooted across tho
eastern cdget of South Dakota and Into
Minnesota, and for the flrst of the
morning Colonel Roosevelt enjeyed
himself sittlng ln an easy chalr and
readlng a book. Then the erpineer
tooted ono loud blast wlth the whlstle
and slowed down for Marshall, tho
flrst stop. Colonel Roosevelt contlnued
to read hls book. There was a shout
outside. The colonel iooked through
the wfndow. Almost before the traln
stopped the crowd closed around the
rear platform It was such a large
crowd that lt lookca as though every
person ln Marshall was out to see the
colonel. The people had pald no at?
tention to the colonel's telegram.
"Teddy, Teddy. come on out!" tho
crowd shouted. "Let's see you."
The Colonel Yield*.
The colonel hesltated for a moment.
The shouts grew louder. He laid down
hls book. Some of the people saw him
through the window and cheered. He
arose to his feet, and there was an?
other cheer. He walked to the door
and thrust hls head through. The chear
developed lnto a yell, and the colonel
could not reslst. He walked out to
the platform, and In an lnstant men
and boys were scrambllng- upon the
railing, trylng to shake his hand. Ho
thrust out both hands, and half a dozen
men caught hold of each one. After he
had shaken hands wlth every one in
reach, the colonel stepped back.
"Speech! Speech!" The crles grew
louder, and the colonel capltulated. ln
another mlnute he was standlng at
the railing, hls hand ralsed, hls fist
clenched, hammering away at the air
to emphaslze each polnt as he talKcd
about honesty. good citizenshlp and
chlldren. As the traln rolled awav
he was stlll talklng.
The same thlng happened at every
place at whlch the traln stopped. At
no town dld the people pay any at?
tention to the colonel's telegrams. Col?
onel Roosevelt surrendered uncondl
tlonally and spent the remainder of tho
day in making speeches. The people
came out with bands and flags and
swarmed on the tracks behlnd the train.
The colonel made more speeches to?
day than on almoBt any other day
slnce he began his trlp.
At Hanley Falls, MInn., almost every
one ln the crowd was carrylng a flag.
At Morrls, Minn.. the Boys' Band came
out and tried to play "Tho Star
Spangled Banrier." Two cowglrls rode
down to thc station at Campbell ana
sat 'on their cow ponles on tho edgo i
of the crowd, Hstening to Colonel
Roosevelt's speech. He waved hls
hand at them, and they nnswe-rcd ils
salute.
Salutes Cowglrls.
The crowd at ?AVillmar, Minn., was
one of the largest of the day. As it
was, Colonel Roosevelt said he thought
a sermon from hlin would be flttlng.
He told them that the American peo?
ple must have threo qualltles in order
to succeed as a natlon. Flrst, he men?
tioned honesty and then courage.
"But honesty and courage are not
enough," ho said. "In addltlon you
need the savjng grace of common
sense. If a man's a natural born fool,
you can't do much with him."
A little girl was ltfted on her father's
shoulders, so that sho could hand a
huge bouquet to the colonol.
"That's fine, fine," ho sald, pattlng
the chlld's head. "Vou peoplo llston to
tho sermon, and I got the flowers,"
At Beckenridge, Minn., Senators Mc
Cumber nnd Purcell, of North Dakota,
got, on the train. At AVahpeton, the
flrst station across tho line In North
Dakota, a rcception commlttoe- ap?
peared, headed by Mayor Early, and
took tho colonel in hand. AVhon' the
traln reached Fargo, the largest crowd
of all was thero. Tho receptlon com?
mitteo tr'led to persuade tho people
to go away, saylng that Colonol Roose?
velt was tlrod, but they stayed untll
the colonel carrie_down tho steps, and
cheorod h\m. Then they followed him
to his hotel, where the colonel retirrd
to hls room, saylng that he was go?
lng to havo the ovenlng to rest, and
that he would make no further appear-'
tnces untll to-morrow.
Thousands of persons havo come to
Fargo for to-morrow's Labor Day

wero racing toward- the clty, came

alone, saved them from death. Tho
raclng cars were fairly abreast, each
taking a slde of the road. They wero
coming so fast that Mr.- Harwood could
not shoot across the hlghway to a

E
CHIEF JUST1CE
Friends of Jurist Hope Roose?
velt Will Use Influence
With Taft.
AVashlngton, D. C, September 4.?
One effect of> Colonel Roosevult's
speech ln crlticism of certaln decisions
of the Supreme Court of tho Unlted
States has been to encourage . tno
friends of Assoclate Justlce Harlan to
hope that the ex-Presldent may urgo
upon Presldent Taft his appolntment
to the vacant post of Chlef Justlce
Justlce Harlan alono dlssented from
the declsion of tha court ln the .am
ous Knlght case, whlch was made even
more ronowed by the crlticism heaped
upon It by Colonel Roosevelt, Apart
from the wish diclated by the high
csteem ln whlch Justlce Harlan ls hold,
nearly every one ln. AVaaliiiigton be.
lieves that Governor Hughes, OfNew
York, will be selected as tho successor
to the late Chlef Justlce. Fuller.
A very lngenlus arrangement i'or
solving the various perplexltlea that
are understood to confront Presldent
Taft ln illllng so many .vacancles on
the Supreme Court bench, just at tha
tlme when big casoa cf co'rporatlon law
await decision, has been suggested by
some of the senlor jurlst's frlends. ln
substanco, it provides for tho appolnt?
ment cf Justlce Harlan as Chlef Jus?
tlce, wlth the understandlng that ho
retlre before the. end of the Taft ad?
ministratlon, the promotlon of Mr
Hughes from assoclate Justlce to tho
cn.ei justiceshlp, and the appolntment
of Sollcltor-General Bowers aa an as
sociate justlce, to succeed Mr. Hughes
when elevated. r
Long Record ou Bencli.
-ustice Harlan is by far the oldest
membt-r of the bench, being more than
sevonty-soven year3 cf age. His record
ia even more remarkable. In a few
weeks he will have completed his thlr
ty-thlrd year of service. On June 10,
1912, several months boforo the ond of
the" present administratlon, Justlce
Harlan will have aorved longer on tlio
Supreme bench than any other man ln
its history. Hls sorvice will have ex-.
ceeded that of Flcld, Marshall and
Story. Having rounded out hls career
wlth a service as Chlef Justlce, li is
understood that Justlce Harlan would
bo glad to retlre.
The ambltlous schomo of Justlco
Harlun'a frlends, carrylhg with lt thu
plan for*hls early retlroment, and the

Clouds hnvo been hoverlng over St.

growlng dnrker dally.
Following the venerable archblshop's
appeal fcr Dlvlne blesslng nnd the in
troductlon of Governor A. O. Kberhart,
of Mlnnesota, comes the address of
President Taft. AVhat Is Tnft golng to
say? ls a question being asked ln thls
city! But whlle there is great Interest
ln what tho Presldent may say, there
ls more speculatlon concernlng tho
probable attitude of hls predecessyr
j ln offlce. Colon.l Theodore Roosevelt.
j Tho former Presldent ls on the pro?
gram to speak Tuesday, the day after
Presldent Taft makes hls address. Tho
colonel selected the date hlmself. AVhllo
Roosevelt ls tnlklng Presldent Tnft
will be on hls wny bnck East Tbo
Presldent and the former Presldent will
not meet ln St. Paul.
<It ls on Monday that the much dls
cussed conference of the Governors ls
to be held. Should the Balllngor-PIn
chot matter come up, and any splrlt of
crlticism crop out, lt is belleved that
thero will bo started one of the hottest
tights ever known.
Iiiniirgrnt Tentlency.
Led by Governor Hay, of AVashlngton,
Secretary Balllnger's State, the AVest
orn Governors havo shown Insurgent
tendencles; Thc clalm ha? been mado
that the program has been "packed"
agalnst the AA'est. Go?ernor Hay de?
clared that he would nen appolnt dele?
gates from his State unless a repre?
sentative to bc selected by him should
be glven nn hour to place Washington ~
posltlon before the congress. He was
told that Presldent Taft and Coloiict
Roosoevlt wore the only speakers who
would have that much tlme. and that
AVashlngton would have to bc contont
with tho samo tlme allotted to other
States. Then Governor Hay called a
meetlng of AVestern Governors, to be
held In Salt Lake City. A delegntlon
conslstlng of Frank B. Kellogg, "trust
buster" for Roosevelt; Ralph AA'heolocK,
private sccrctary of Governor Eber
hart, of Mlnnesota; J, H. Beek. repr?-?
senting the local board of managers for
tho congress, and Reuben AVarner, rep
resentlng St. Paul and Mlnneapolls bus?
iness Interests, was sent to the Salt
Lake moetlng.
They gave the Western Governors as
surnnce that they would be properly
treated, and tho result was that all ul
the AVestern States will have delegn
tlons in the congress, though some ot
the Governors will not be present bo
-causo of othor engagements.
(.ucntlou of State.' Hlghtft.
It is the old question of States' rights
that Is llkely to make the greatest
trouble. The AA'ashington delegation la
coming to St. Paul dl.vlded agalnst It?
self. One of the delegates appolnted
by tho Mayor of Spokane declares that
he and -others favor conservatlon ot re
sources by the States. Another' dele
gate says ho wants the resources con
served by the government, so lt may%
readlly be seen what the chances are'
for a fight on thls question.
Reed Smoot, Senator from Utah, ls
author of Senate bill No. 7-13-, author?
izlng "the Presldent^ to wlthdraw from
nll forms of .settlemeht, entry or otiiec
dfsposltion any lands whlch nre or
may becorne chiefly valuable for the
development of water power, and pro
vlding for the acqulsltlon by any State
or Territory, undor certaln conditions,
of any lands bo wlthdrawn, and for
othor purpos.es."
Thls bill ls rcgarded aB containlng
the cream of the "States" rights" prop?
osltlon. so far as tho rolatiou of Fed?
eral and Stato goyernments to the con?
trol of waterpower and power sites is
coilcerned. Tho resolutlons adopted hy
the Northwestern Governors declara
openly for such measures.
That President Taft will support
thls proposltlon ls regarded as proba?
ble ln the light of a prevlous utter
ance credlted to him. At St. Louis ln
hls speech May 4, the President de
fended the Smoot bill before the meet?
lng of tho Farmers' Union. He then
sald:
"As concerns Congress at this time,
conservatlon rusolve's itjself at onca
into the necesslty of passlng the hill. ?
which will glvo to tho executlvo un
questloned authorlty to wlthdraw land
for power sltes und othor purposcs.
AVlth thls power ln tho hands of tho
President of thu United States, we can
sit eomforLibly by and dlscuss and dc
vlso the best means of disposlng of
the great public domaln to tlio benotlc
of present and future generatlons."
lt is pointed out that Itoosevelt haa
nt all times matnta'necl a poaitlon (11
rectly untagonlstlo to the provislons ot
the Smoot measure. As opposed to^ahu-,
"States" rights" theory, the Roosevelt
ldea ls genorally known to bo "na?
tlonal" conservatlon proposltlon. In
whlch the Federal government shall
undertako the work of conservatlon
when the projeota considered are of
natlonal scope. Tho States may act ln
mattors pertainlng only to their inter?
