ROOSEVELT IN NEW YORK.
City .Wild With Enthusiasm-Heavy
Storm Holds Off.
New York Thcodoro Roosovelt set
foot on homo shores Saturday, Juno 18,
for tho first time in nearly 15 months.
and received a rousing welcome.
Ho boro with his usual buoyancy a
day of heavy fatigues, public duties
and private emotions commingled, and
at 4 :40 o'clock in tho afternoon, after
a family reunion at tho homo of
Thcron Butler, grandfather of his pros
pcctlvo daughter-in-law, Miss Eleanor
Butler Aloxander, loft tho city ho sur
veyed tho samo morning1 from afloat,
reviewed In parado mhoro and greeted
by explicit word of mouth, to bo wel
comed more intimately by his lifelong
neighbors at Oyster Bay, L. I. As a
private citizen ho was tho samo out
spoken, vigorous man of words and
deeds tho city of his birth has known
for 30 years as assemblyman, police
commissioner, assistant secretary of
the navy, colonel of tho Rough Itluors,
governor of tho state, vico president
and president of tho nation, and moro
latterly, ambassador to tho jungle and
monitor to thoso who alt In tho scats
of tho mighty.
Ho had an expanslvo smllo for every
body, a cheery word for "tho boys,"
his old friends, tho newspapermen, pat
anecdotes for tho politicians, greetings
of affection for his old command, tho
Rough Riders, and a quick oyo for
Lyman Abbott ho called "partner,"
Jacob Rlls was plain "Jako;" Assem
blyman "Paradlso" Jimmy Oliver was
greeted by his nickname; 1 nomas
Grady, his old antagonist In state pol
itics, ho greeted jovially, and so it
went down tho lino. '
"Rooseolt good luck" still followed
him. Though hot and sultry, tho
weather held fair until tho marlno
parade, tho exercises at tho Battery
and tho march up Broadway and Fifth
avenue to Central Park had been car
ried through with punctuality and pre
cisionand then It rained groat guns.
It cloarcd again shortly before 5
o'clock in plenty of timo to give his
eager fellow citizens of Long Island
amplo chanco to sco him standing on
tho rear platform of his special train
as ho waved them a welcome.
Within n generation tho nation ro-
mombcrs thrco great welcomes before
tho ono of Saturday to General Grant
In San Francisco after his triumphal
tour of tho world, following tho expir
ation of his two terms as president; to
Admiral Dowoy on his return from tho
Philippines, and to William Jennings
Bryan, also after a tour of tho world.
Tho welcomo to Grant was tho most
tumultuous; that to Dowoy was tho
most elaborate and stately, but tho
wolcomo to Roosovolt was shot through
with a dramatic expectancy which long
ago found popular expression In tho
typical phrase: "Tho return from
Grant on his return was still a polit
ical possibility, but as events proved,
foredoomed to defoat Admiral Dow
oy waa a hero, not a national leader.
Bryan, prominent as his part had been
before tho people, had never been on'
trusted by them with executlvo re
Roosovelt hsd been something of all
theso things statesman, and "soldier
and sailor, too." Born In tho East, he
had mado an especial friend of tho
West. His wolcomo brought men from
all parts of the country. It was na
tional. Tho first zest of public curiosity hav
ing been satisfied, speculation now
turns on what share Roosevelt will
tako In an acute political situation
within his own party, of which ho had
already boen advised abroad by old
associates who had carried him tidings.
But on that score, speculation must rest
unsatisfied. Tho Colonel had positive
ly declared his Intentions by wireless
tho night before.
"I shall havo nothing to say what
ever In tho immediate future about
politics," and ho kept his word.
Therefore, there was nothing in tho
only speech ho mado hero that could bo
construed as applying specifically to
this or that phase of immediate statu
or national Issues,
New Mexico Will Celebrate,

Germany Will Raise Ban,
Berlin Tho Btrlngcnt regulations,
now preventing thousands of Germans
living abroad from visiting tho Father
land, may bo abrogated If tho govern
ment approves a plan that it Is consid
ering. Tho proposal, which Is to lift
tho ban against a former German sub
ject who emigrated without performing
military service, emanated from Ger
man circles In tho United States and
took tho form In a petition recently
framed by Professor Ernest Richard,
of Columbia university, New York, on
behalf of tho loading Gorman societies.

tho new mill.
Tho new plant is second to none on
tho Coast as to modern equipment and

Tho building Is so constructed that
it is fireproof throughout Thcro is
arranged a standard fire protection sys

man states that tho recent rainfall is
of immense valuo in temporarily re
