WILL GO TO PACIFIC 00 AST
Be Accompanied By Mem
bers of Cabinet and
Plans are under way at Washington
Iot a trip by President McKAnley and
party to the Pacific coast. The itiner
ary has not jet been completed, and
hence offers another opportunity for
the tri-cities to bid for a visit from
the nation's chief executive.
The present intention is to leave
Washington in May. The route west
will be the southern. It is the ex
pectation to do California leisurely.
Stops of several days will be made in
the vicinity of Los Angeles. At San
Francisco the president will witness
the launching of the Ohio.
Additional interest will be given by
the presence of members of the cabi
net and their families. It is the presi
rent a desire to have as companions
as many of his secretaries as may be
able to make the trip. There will be
20 or 30 people in the party. Cabinet
meetings will be held and necessary
public business will be transacted en
route. Secretary Cortelyou and eom
other members of the executive staff
will go 'JA presidential train will
accommodate the party. J'' A month or
possibly more will be1 consumed. The
president goes not alone for recrea
tion. His purpose is to acquaint him
6elf with conditions in a portion of
the country which he expected to visit
in his first administration, when he
was compelled to defer his plans on
account of the war.
After doing California the president
and party will go to Oregon a

northern route. 1. he arrival in Wash
ington will not be until some time in
Should See the Araenal.
If the southern route is not foreor
dained via some road that bears away
from here, it is in order to suggest
that the itinerary for the honorable
party be arranged to include the tri
cities and Rock Island arsenal. The
Rock Island will thence bear the party
as far to the southward as there may
be desire to go, or the C, B Se Q
will do the same thing. It will be
vastlv better for the arsenal if the
whole administrative household can
have a look at it, and this seems to be
the opportunity ef all others. If any
thing is accomplished iu this matter
the work must be done soon. Other
places will be after the party, and ar
rangements will be made. The busi
ness men and everybody else with iu
fluence ought to be at work on the
matter. There is a tri-city general
committee for such purposes as this
