PRESIDENT AT WORLD'S FAIR
WAS GREAT DAY OF PLEASURE
NOT AN ACCIDENT.
Announcement That Nation's Chief
Would Attend Fair Drew Great
Throngs of People—The Party Took
in Whole Show—Receives Presents
and Given Great Banquet In Evening.
St. Louis, Nov. 27. —Never have more
perfect conditions prevailed since the
opening of the world's fair than those
that marked Saturday, which was de
voted to a tour through the exposition
by President Roosevelt, accompanied
by Mrs. Roosevelt, Miss Alice Roose
velt and members of the president's
party. It was strictly a day of pleas
ure with not the slightest incident to
mar the perfect enjoyment of the occa
The heralded announcement that the
nation's chief executive would visit
the exposition drew tremendous
throngs, and to guard him from pos
sible danger that might menace him,
secret service men, soldiers and police
guards abounded, but they had com
paratively little to do in preserving
The sentiment seemed to be unani-!
nious in the minds of the thousands of
spectators that President Roosevelt]
was the guest of each one, and each
did his best to preserve order. The
consequence was that the authorities
had only to designate their wishes and
instantly crowds parted, passage ways
were cleared and hindrances quickly
removed and every moment of the
president's limited time might be oc
cupied in viewing the exposition.
"This is marvelous," he said. "It is
beyond description, and exceeds my
fondest expectations. I have had the
best time I have ever had in my life,
and I have seen more than I ever ex
pect to see in one day's time."
From 10 o'clock in the morning until
6 o'clock in the evening the distin
guished visitors, following a schedule,
hurried from one builidng to the next,
from one part of the grounds to an
other, and overlooked nothing of in
terest. From the start to the end of
the tour Mrs. Roosevelt and Miss Alice
accompanied the president, and fatigue
was forgotten in the enjoyment of the
.Tha-first speech of the day was made
in the French pavilion in response to
the welcome accorded by Commission
er General Gerald.
Champagne was sipped in honor of
the toast, and then the party hurried
to the other national pavilions, com
pleting the inspection after midday.
Luncheon was served at the west pa
vilion. This occupied about an hour,
and was purely informal.
A hurried visit was made to the
American building and thence to the
Roosevelt cabin, which sheltered the
president in former days on the Mon
tana ranch. He evinced the greatest
interest in the old log structure, and
pointed out to Mrs. Roosevelt and
Miss Alice a buffalo skin from a buf
falo he had killed.
The rest of the day was spent in
the Philippine reservation. Guards had
cleared the area of visitors and the
entire place was given over to inspec
tion by the presidential party.
During the hour and a half spent in
the Philippine reservation every por
tion was inspected. In the Igorrote
village, Chief Antonio, who had been
to Washington and met the president,
presented him with an album contain
ing 40 photographs of Igorrotes.
Filipinos Sang "America."
A class of natives then sang "Amer
ica" in the English tongue, having
learned it since they came to the expo
At the Lanao Moro village the na
tives presented a silver dish and a set
of silver bottles to the president, who,
in accepting them, said: "I thank you
very much for this gift. My aim is to
help you increase your happiness and
prosperity, and I am glad to meet you
on this side of the water."
Given Silver, Knife, Cane and Dish.
Passing into the Moro village, ad
joining, the president was met by Dat
to Facunda, who presented him with
a big knife, saying through an inter
"I give you my pria, which has been
my own individual weapon, and with
which I have killed thre* enemies.
There will be no more fighting in my
country, and I will have no more use
for my pria. I will give it to nobody
The president accepted the knife and
expressed his thankfulness that war|
was at an end and that the disposal of i
the weapon was emblematic of peace
The banquet given in honor of the
presidential party at the world's fair
was served in the main dining hall of
the Alps, at which 600 guests of prom
inence in the social, business and po
litical world sat down.

of Montana, Governor-elect Folk of
Missouri, Governor Van Sant of Min

MODERATE TARIFF REVISION.
