He made two addresses at the Institution, one In assembly hall, where ghs formal dedicatory ceremonies took place, and the other from the balcony1 of the building to 1.500 pupils of the school. T"-night the President responded to a toaat during the founders' day banquet at the Union League. In the interim between than events President Roosevelt was en- t. r rained at luncheon by Charles Emory Smith, former postmaster general, and was tendered a reception at the home of Ed ward T. Stotesbury. Some excitement was caused this after noon Just after the President left the resi dence of Mr. Smith for the reception at Mr. fevotesbury's. The carriage containing t . i M.Wnt and Secretary Cortelyou had gree the extraordinary development of the public school system in the United States. "It is some sixty-four years' ago that this Institution was flrst started under a man of great emlner.ee alike in the work of pedagogy and in other fields Professor Pacht. At the time when It was started the public school system of the United States had become and was in the progress of firat development. There are now in the city of Philadelphia in attendance upon the public schools, including the night schools, some 170,000 pupils and over 4.000 teachers, and the development of the high schools, specially during the past half century, has been literally phenomenal In its char acter. "Nothing like our present system of edu cation was known in earlier times. No such system of popular education for the people hy representatives of the people existed. It Is, ot course, a mere truism to say that the stability, the future welfare of our In stitutions, depends upon the grade of citi zenship turned out from our public schools. No body of public servants, no body of in dividuals associated in private life, are bet ter worth the admiration and respect of all no value citizenship at its true worth than the body composed of the teachers in the public schools throughout the length and breadth of this Union. They have to deal with citizenship in the raw and to turn it out something like a finished product, and I think that all of us who have en deavored to deal with that citizenship in the raw in our own homes appreciate the burden of responsibility. TRAINING TH'E ORCHESTRA. "The training given in the public schools, must of course, be not merely a training in intellect, but a training in what counts for infinitely more than intellect a train ing in character. And the chief factor in that training must be a personal equation of the people, the influence exerted some times consciously, sometimes unconsciously, by the man or woman who stands In so peculiar a relation to the boys and girls under his or her care a relation closer and more intimate and more vital in its after effects than any other relations save that of parent and child. Wherever a burden of that kind is laid, those who carry it necessarily carry a great responsibility there can be no greater; and scant should be our patience with a public school teacher I can go further than that scant should be our patience with any man or woman doing any bit of work worth doing who does not approach it in a spirit of sincere love for the work and of desire to do it well for the work's sake.

Herr Krupp rent ed the house to the club for 1250 a year, and it was expected that the building would be presented to the yacht club. Provision for this gift is believed to have been made in Herr Krupo's will. THE KAISER'S TRIBUTE. Emperor William, upon learning of the death of Herr Krupp this afternoon, sent the following telegram to the direc tors of the works at Essen: "The news of the unexpected death of your chief deep ly touched me. Providence had placed Privy Councilor Krupp at the head of an industry that has won a name far beyond the borders of the fatherland. He made it a life task, not only to maintain, but to extend in a manner corresponding to his universal renown, the work bequeathed to him by his gifted father. His name is intimately linked with the development of the Iron industry, the manufacture of all kinds of arms and modern defenses and shipbuilding. In bis solicitude for his em ployes he was unexcelled; he was a model for every one and was animated by a spirit ot loyalty and patriotism. inerciore. i feel most deeply, in Company with his thou sands of employes, the loss of one who was ever a stanch and loyal supporter of the empire." fc . It Is understood in Essen that the great works created by Herr Krupp will be placed in the hands of trustees for the hpnpfit of Erau KruuD. her daughters and the collateral heirs. It is said that the cousin of the deceased, Arthur Krupp, ot Berndorf, will become the head of the man agement. When the news of Herr Krupp's death was circulated in Essen the population gathered in the streets and in the squares, discussing the announcement. Many were incredulous as to the correctness of the phvsteian's bulletins, some persons ex pressing a belief that the deceased had committed suicide, a conclusion, however, which most of the inhabitants of the town resented. Dr. Tahl, Herr Krupp s personal physician, says the first slight stroke of apoplexy was suffered by his patient yes terday evening.

His whereabouts became known when he was brought to New Rochelle for examination before a commission as to his sanity. The action was brought by E. H. Sutton, of Bloomfield. N.

Sutton told fhe corsmission that Allen suffered from hallucinations, that he was being pursued by creditors and asked that he be legally committed to an asylum, no such step having previously been taken. Allen then addressed the commission in carefully chosen language. He was utterly in the dark, he said, as to why the proceed ings had been brought and he asked for counsel.

But in the confusion a colored man had also reached the carriage. He pnsped the President's hand and covered it with kisses. The excitement caused by j the Incident subsided In an instant and the procession proceeded. Mr. Roosevelt's visit to-day was the third h hai made to this city since he became President of the United States. Last year he attended the football match between the army and navy, and recently he par rated in the Masonic celebration of G'-orge Washington's admission to the Ma :c fraternity. On both of these occa s. however, his stay was brief. His pttual by the citizens to-day was most enthusiastic. The special train bearing the presidential party arrived here over the Pennsylvania Railroad at ll:t5 a. m. Accompanying the President were Secretary of the Treasury fcihaw. Secretary of War Root. Secretary of the Interior Hitchcock, Secretary of Agriculture Wilson. Postmaster General 1 .yne. Dr. Long. U. S. A., the President's physician, and Secretaries to the President Cortelyou and Loeb.

The sidewalks were lined with wildly cheering throngs, and in acknowl edgment of the enthusiastic demonstration the President repeatedly raised his hat. A reception committee, consisting of members of the Board of Public Education, conducted the President to the school, and upon his arrival at the institution he was met by the students, who lined the corri dors and stairways from the entrance of the building to the assembly ball, each pupil t tri?. a small American flag.

Does Not Think the United Stntes Will Intervene? Naval Demonstration Possibility. LONDON. Nov. 22. Great Britain is con templating serious reprisals against Ven ezuela. The Associated Press also is offi cially informed that Great Britain Is act ing with Germany in all matters relating to the present state of affairs in Venezuela. Whether the contemplated action will take the form of a Joint naval demonstration, accompanied by or following the severance of diplomatic relations, is a matter now being discussed in Berlin and London. There is reason to believe that the Britto government has either been officially or otherwise informed that the United States will not intervene in any demonstration having the object of protecting the property rights of British citizens or their interests in Venezuela.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 22. Painters, car penters and cleaners are hurrying to get the Capitol in shape for the opening of the short session of Congress, which begins Dec. L Both chambers of the National Leg islature are beginning to look bright and new as a result of the rubbing and dec orating. One of the busiest men about the building is Daniel M. Ransdell. ser-geant-at-arms of the Senate. "Colonel" Ransdell, as he is known to most of the employes of the building, directs a great deal of the work that is done in getting the Senate chamber in shape, and in addition to this he acts as a sort of purchasing agent. Just now he is worrying about the coal supply for the winter. It is estimated the Senate and House sides of the building will each consume about 4.000 tons of hard coal a year. The supply Is being laia in for both sides, and on account of the strike it is no easy matter to get what is needed delivered promptly. "The situation in Washington," said Mr. Ransdell a day or two ago, "Is Just about as critical as it was before a settlement of the strike was agreed on." This year Mr. Ransdell ad vertised for bids for furnishing coal and received a reply from but one company. This company promised to furnish coal as rapidly as it could be got. This year the government is paying $6.45 a ton for hard coal to use at the Capitol building. Last he Drice was $4. 67 a ton. Mr Ransdell a few days ago held his an nual auction of old furniture and other articles that the Senate cannot use. A day or two later the sale to dispose of stuff that aceumuiaiea in tne rtouse was neiu. One of the articles disposed of was a long table that used to do duty in the room of the committee on ways and means. It was purchased by a man who it was suspected keeps a gambling game. He paid $5 for the table and announced that he would use it in conducting the seductive game of "keno." xxx Charles B.

Indianapolis retail tobacco dealers and Jobbers are deeply concerned about the un mistakable intrusion of the United Stores Cigar Company Into this city. The evidencn of the hand of the corporation has been conclusive to retailers and a meeting will probably be held this week to organise lor defense. The tobacco dealers know what this in trusion means. The general public is not so certain in its knowledge. The I'nited Stores Cigar Company is Incorporated in New Jersey for $3,000.000 and made Its debut in New York some time ago. The company, according to a long discussion of it in the New York Evening Post, is another ten tacle of the tobacco octopus. Its policy is to enter the retail business. The policy disclosed in New York is to acquire the most profitable retail stores, whether they are willing to be acquired or not. If a re tail store declines trust terms it is "para lelled," according to railroad Illustrative terms, and forced either out of business or into capitulation.

Nov. 22. -City detectives have arrested Mrs. Kate McCloskey in a West Side pawn shop, where, they assert, she was negotiating a loan on a diamond ring worth more than $1.000. The prisoner said she had been employed at Madison square Garden in sweeping the carpets on the floors of the boxes. There, in a box oc cupied by members of the Vanderbllt fam ily, the ring was found. She had watched the newspapers for some clew to its owner, but none appeared.

She will reach Essen early Sunday morn ing. . .. . . According to the menicai reports m sicians succeeded in restoring Herr Krupp to consciousness, but their patient soon re lapsed into insensibility. He died at 3 o'clock. In the meantime the directors of the Krupp works and Herr Krupp's solici tors had been summoned. They held a con sultation after his death and caused a bul letin announcing his demise to be posted at the works at 6 o'clock. At about noon rumors were in circulation in Essen that Herr Krupp was dying, but the public had no accurate information regarding his condition until the great works, which dominate the city and furnish employment to 43,000 men. were closed. The first question that everybody asked was, "did Kerr Krupp commit suicide?" There seems to be no testimony to support this suggestion, the physicians in attend ance resolutely asserting that the case was simply one of apoplexy. That considerable time elapsed after death before the news was announced is taken by some persons to indicate that the cause of death is some what obscure. Near friends of the dead man, who were aware of the great mental distress into which the recent publication in the Vorwaerts had thrown him repro duced as it was in adjacent cities and tele graphed over the world are confident the charges contained in the story induced his death.

The retailers here have no organisation, but one Is likely to come quickly under the circumstances. In Chicago, where the United Stores Company is making a fight for control of the retail trade, an organi zation has been formed, a defense fund provided, evidence collected to test the character of the company in court, and a warfare has resulted on trust-made goods. In New York and several Western cities organizations have been formed. In some the dealers have prepared to throw out trust-made goods and push the trade of local manufacturers. C. W. Krlel, one of the largest local deal ers, who has four places, says he has to leave him to his fate. The fire Is still 1 aging and Murray's sawmill is in special danger.

Herr Krupp was not regarded as a hard mg.tor hv his workmen. He established at and built hundreds of model nouses on sanitarv principles for their use. charging for them a moderate rental.
