St. Louis, Nov. 27.—Never have more
perfect conditions prevailed since the
opening of the world's fair than tin ■«
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 presidents
party. It was strictly a day of pleas

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 bad com
paratively little to do in preserving
The sentiment seemed to be unani
mous 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

accompanied the president, and fatigue
was forgotten in the enjoyment of the
The first speech of the day was made
in u;e Fttactl 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.

MODERATE TARIFF REVISION.
