Orleans behind him, President Tatt
Is on tho last leg of his long Journey.
Mo has nlno days more in the- south
ern states, hut ho already has seen
enough of tho south to enable him to
8ay that hia two months study of
conditions throughout tho country Is
practically finished. Tho Impressions
.that ho has gathered from his trip
-jvc re summarized by him in a speech
here. Said he:
KI have- gone from tho Atluntlc to
tho Pacific "ocean, down tho Pacific
const to tho southwest corner of the
country, through tho territories and
that great domain to St. Louis, down
jthoMIsslsslppl to New Orleans, and
I havo made tho Lord forglvo mo
and the Lord help them who have
iieard me two hundred-odd speeches,
Jiavo survived the hearing of two
hundred more, and I am ablo to say
' that wc never in our country's his-
, tory wero ns on homogenous a peo
plo, as closely allied In all our hopes
. and ambitions nnd in all our pride of
hi country nnd patriotism, as wo are
"It Is posslblo that thero is a cor-
.ner in this country that escaped me
where thero is discontent, but if so
I havo not found it. But in "eVery
town I had almost said every ham
letin every city nnd county, in
" every state, I havo found the Individ
jial saying to himself: 'I am content
ed hero becauso I know what will
"iriako this city, or this town or this
county tho best in tho slate, and I
am going to do that very thing.'"
Tho president spent 1G hours in
this city, more time than ho gave to
Chicago or San Francisco. Hero in
,, Jackson thoy oay that Mr. Taft is
the first president who ever discov
ered that tho city is on tho map.
President McKlnloy's special train
stopped hero for n second or two,
,rbut no chief cxecutlio ever honored
tho city with a visit. In view of this
fact and becauso of the great men In
'American history that Mississippi
has produced, President Taft insisted
that Jackson had to havo a full mens
uro of presidential presence. Jack
son appreciated tho compliment and
old her best to mako tho president's
Jong stay In tho city pleasant. Every
body seemed to havo in mind tho
jvords of Mississippi's famous Lamar,
'If wo knew each other better, we
would love each other more." Tho
IIsslsslppl folks certainly did their
pest to mako the president's ac
quaintance, and Mr. Taft was cordial
nnd chummy. In carrying out this
Taft celebration Jackson had n good
many things tb contend against.
There was a stato fair, a circus, n
ballaon ascension and a parachute
drop Tho circus and the balloon
ascension nlono would have dlscour-aged'the-
ordinary city, but Jackson
iaanngod to keep tho circus parado
imtll the Taft show, Tho circus out-
tflt, with its long line of animal cages,
Indians and rough riders, waited in a
sido street until the Taft procession
had passed and disappeared into the
fair grounds. Then tho circus bands
f struck up and followed on down tho
troet, thus enabling tho Jackson
oiks to kill two birds with ono stone.
Thb president helped swell the
gate receipts of tho Jackson fair just
t its he has those of many other shows
on this trip. Tho president acknowl
edged when he started out from Bos
ton that this .gato-recelpt swelling
.business was to be ono of bis chief
functions, and fair managers have
inet him more than half way.
. Tho dinner given in honor of tho
distinguished guest had caused con
siderable of a fuss botween tho' wets
and drys in tho city. The drys wero
jnpnosed to having wlno sorved and
thoy carried tho matter Into tho pul
frits of soma of tho churches. The
JTvetB, howoVdr, refused to gtvo In,
Jond then tho teraporatica i peoplo
threatened to got out an Injunction
restraining tho ivets from using wine
'at tho banquet. The wlno drinkers
carried tho day by going to Now Or
leans and buying their supply In Lou
isiana. Now tho teetotalers say thoy
will carry the matter to tho polls.
