in the great crowd before tho stand.
For a time it looked as though wom

Horlous situation, and the

Jamestown Exposition, April 2G.
Made to order weather greeting tho
visitors, scarcely a cloud in tho Bky,
and Just enough breezo to make tho
hot sun comfortable.
Up to the time President Roosevelt
reached the grounds,- workmen were
busy cicanlnij up the debris. In spite
ot their 'cffortB, however, tho view
from the landing was not insjilring.
