PUT IMJJSY DAY President RooseTelt a Guest at Jamestown for Nine Honrs. He Reviews the Fleet and Makes Two Speeches. KEN IE US THE PARADE Of Military and Naval Forces, and Visits Negro Exhibit. Farticipates in Presentation of the Georgia Silver Service. Exposition Grounds, Va, June 10. Brought back to the Jamestown exposi tion by the formal opening of Bulloch hall, the ancestral home of his mother at Roswell, Ga., and reproduced here as the Georgia state building. President Roosevelt today is for the second time the central figure of an attractive expo sition programme. 4 The military and naval spectacle was not greatly dissimilar to that which marked the visit of the president when the exposition was opened on April 26. The president wa the euest of the exposition for stout nine hours, arm ing with a special party. including Mrs. Roosevelt,, on the Mayflower, at 8:20 a. m. After receiving the Georgia officials on board and with them as his guests reviewing the fleets assemDiea In Ftamntnn Roads, he was landed at the pxnosition grounds at about 11 "clock. He made a speech as a part of the Georgia day exercises in the forenoon and another at the convention of the National Editorial association in the auditorium this afternoon. He re viewed the parade of the military and naval forces, visited the negro exnioir nnrtirinated in the presentation of a silver service by the state of Georgia to tho hptileshin named for her, at tended a reception given at the Georgia building, by Georgians alor.a in honor of himself and Mrs. Roosevelt, and vis ited Informally the New York state building. He will depart for Washing tnn nt nhout fi o'clock. The weather was Just cloudy enough to break the heat of the sun. From early morning every street car and boat arriving at the exposition deposited hundreds nf rtasspneers. Every part of the exposition grounds except the "war path" was covered ay the president in his strenuous oay. Biggest Crowd Yet. The New York building and the Georgia building and the negro exhibit are situated at extreme opposite ends of the grounds and the reviewing stands and the auditorium where the speeches were made are in about the center of ihe erounds. The reservation was thronged with the greatest attendance since the opening of the exposition ana the president was given a reception fullv a enthusiastic as that accorded him on the occasion of his first visit As the Mayflower steamed down the long column of vessels eacn in turn greeted the president, who occupied the bridge of yacht with a salute of 21 guns. The foreign vessels had the positions of honor in a line nearest and parallel to the exposition grounds and were reached first by ' the May flower, so that their guns were the first to be heard in sounding their salutations. The black or dark drab vessels of Austria-Hungary, Brazil, Italy. The Netherlands and Portugal, appeared in sharp contrast to the At lantic fleet of 33 vessels under the command of Rear Admiral Evans, the hips being draped in the usual peace paint of white for the hulls and buff for the superstructures. Each Manned the Rails. Each foreign and American ship manned the rails as it passed in re view. Completing the circuit the May flower came to her anchorage within the group of flagships and immediate ly the president received on board the flag officers of the Atlantic fleet. The foreign flags and commanding officers were then received and in departing they proceeded to the exposition grounds where they went ashore at Discovery landing. A few minutes later they were fol lowed by the president from the barge of the commander-in-chief of the Atlantic fleet, accompanied by the rrembers of his party. From Discovery landing the presi dent's party was driven through a guard of honor formed by the Georgia troops, the cadets of the military and naval academies and the Virginia mili tary institute drawn up in open ranks. Thp prpn t throne- within t Vi o ir.niin,lP stretched from the water front to the I auditorium and on the outside a crowd of far greater proportions had assem bled on Lee parade in front of the reviewing stand. Thousands of voices swelled the cheering which was begun as soon as the president stepped on land and continued until the program was opened at the stand. Governor Terrell introduced Presi dent Mitchell of the Georgia com mission. Mr. Mitchell presented Car dinal Gibbons, who offered the invo cation and the band played the "Star Spangled Banner," after which Mr. Mitchell introduced President Roose velt whom he characterized as one "held in esteem, honor and affection by the south regardless of politics, rtot because of his exalted position, out for his honesty, because when he sees his duty, like the Immortal Lee, lie swerves not from it, holding that duty, right and Justice are above gain applauding and admiring wealth, whether corporate or individual, no matter how great -when honestly got ten: condemning and despising it when gained at the expense of a be trayed trust. From his beloved southern mother he imbibes largely ! the ideals mat nave placed him before an .admiring country as one who means to do his duty by all. "Knowing no north, no south, no east no west , giving square deal to the poor as well as the rich, seeking the punishment of ill gotten wealth as he would the pauper. I Introduce him to you as the most distinguished of Georgia's distinguished grandsons." President Roosevelt then delivered his first address. He spoke for about an hour and was cheered throughout his entire -speech. The president then reviewed the parade of foreign and United States sailors and blue jackets, marines, ar tillery, cavalry and infantry. West Point and Annapolis cadets, Virginia cadets, Georgia national guard, Vir ginia volunteers and "Other small mili tary detachments. . The president's tour of the grounds then ensued.

Government's ledger Is 9 70,000,000 to the Good for the Year. Washington, June 10. At the close of Dusiness Saturday the surplus revenue of the government for the present fiscal year totaled 170.089,942,440. There was a iso an available cash balance in the treasury of $259,452,237.45. The total resources for the fi.429 na tional banks under the call-of May 20 amounted to $8,476,501,434. This is an increase of nearly J7.000.000 in less than a year. JThe individual deposits are now $4. 3r2.880.141. A year ago they were $4.- uoo.s.o.tKSO, an increase of nearly $300,- A year ago the government had on aepesit in national banks, $80,900,000; toaay it has, over fl70.0O0.O00. Another convincing sign that the good times are still with us and the country is prospering as never before, is the tre mendous gains reported in the postal re ceipts. No department of the govern ment so correctly reflects the business conditions as does the postofnee. Postoffice Records Broken, The last quarter, ending March 31, was tne greatest in the history of the coun try for postoffice receipts. Since then the gain has shown a decided advance, and it is estimated that Uncle Sam will have been paid over $180,000,000 for car rying the letters of his fellow citizens. This will be an increase from $167,000,000. the total receipts last year, and the de- ncit wnicn nas been the bugaboo of all postmaster generals and all congresses ror years will be reduced to the smallest figure in years. It was $14,000,000 two years ago; last year it was cut to $10, 000,000, and it may be less than half that this year, despite the natural in crease In the running expenses of the department and the extensive enlarge ment of the rural free delivery service. This prosperity in the postal service is quite general in all parts of the coun try, as was shown by the readjustment of salaries of the postmasters, every state sharing in the increases made for next year. No Cause for Alarm. Secretary Wilson of the department of agriculture, who has just returned from the trip through the west, be lieves that the crop conditions have been exaggerated and is by no means inclined to regard the situation as calling for an excess of pessimism. As a matter of fact, the heads of the government can see no genuine cause for alarm when the customs receipts and internal revenue taxes are break ing all records, and when' the surplus for the year ending with June 80 will show that the expenses of Uncle Sam will be over $80,000.0000 less than his income. Nor do they believe any one should get worried when for every one of the 80,000.000 of people in the country there is $55 on deposit in the national banks, not taking into ac count the vast sums in the state and private banking establishments of the country. They regard the fact that tO-Amertcan- publie la disinclined to overspeculate as a healthful sign and a demonstration that as the people grow more prosperous they are more inclined to conservatism At the same time the treasury figures demonstrate clearly that we are living up to a standard never before attained in this or any other nation. This is shown by the tremendous increase in the receipts from customs and internal revenue. We are buying in foreign markets at a rate never before dream ed of. Up -to date the customs have netted over $312,000,000, and if the av erage of about $1,000,000 a day is main tained until the end of the month, when the fiscal year closes, they will go close to $525,000,000, or $25,000,000 more than last year. The internal revenue receipts also show an increase bearing out still fur ther that the average American is de nying himself none of the comforts and luxuries of life. It Is estimated that the federal income from this source for the present fiscal year will reach in the neighborhood of $265,000,000. an increase of $15,000,000 over last year. It is estimated that the surplus of over $70,000,000 that now exists will go to over $85,000,000 by June 30. for at that time all the unexpended balances will be returned to the treasury. Dur ing June a year ago the surplus grew from $9,600,000 to over $25,600,000 in the last three weeks of June, and the rec ord so far for the month is way ahead 01 last 'Par- LOCAL MENTION.

I HE SETTLES IT. Attorney General on Old Soldier Preference Law. Decides That Appointing Power Determines Qualifications. BELIEVES LAW IS GOOD Jackson Has No Doubt cf Its Legality. Text of the Opinion Is Delivered Today. An opinion on various features of the old soldier-preference law has been written by F. S. Jackson, the attorney general, in reply to questions from J. J Schenck, the county attorney. Mr. Schenck received this opinion this af ternoon. An important point in it is the conclusion of the attorney general that in the making of appointments the ap pointing power has the discretion to de termine the qualifications of the soldier applicant. This matter concerning the old sol diers' preference law was brought to the attention of Mr. Schenck for an in formal opinion on an appointment that had been made by the mayor of Oakland where a veteran had been an applicant for a position. Mr. Schenck thought it would be well to get the opinion or tne attorney general on the subject as there were grave doubts tn his mind as to the constitutionality of the measure if it left no discretion with the appointing officer as to the qualifications of the soldier applicant. So he wrote to the attorney general and the opinion he re ceived today is as follows: Text of the Opinion. "In your letter of June 8th you ask ed my opinion on a certain question arising from house bill 33, the same being Chap. 37-4 of the session laws of 1907, as follows: "First, as to whether or not this law is constitutional. Second, whether the appointing power or the court must pass upon the qualifications and com petency of the applicant. Third, whether or not you advise the county attorneys of this state to Institute prosecutions for violation of this act." Section 6509. general statutes 1901 of which house bill 33 is an amended revision was held constitutional in Goodrich -s. Mitchell 66 Kansas. 765. The amended act materially changes the statute. Heretofore "equal quali fications" were required of the ex-soldier or sailor seeking appointment over rival applicants. Under the new law It is sufficient if the ex-soldler or sailor Is "competent to perform the services." Still it would hardly seem hat such a provision would invalidate the statute. The state constitution provides: No special privileges or immunities hall ever be granted by the leglsla ure, which may not be altered, re voked or repealed by the same body." The very language ox the constitu tion contemplated that certain special privileges may be granted, subject to revocation, and repeal. .Your, letter does not suggest any.con stitutional defect and I am left to con jecture on what constitutional ground this act might be challenged. In view of this and no constitutional objection appearing at a fair inspection, I deem it the duty of a prosecuting officer to repress any doubts of its constitution ality and, I advise that this law should be treated as valid until its unconsti tutionality is authoritatively declared by the courts, should that transpire. To your second question .1 would say that undoubtedly the appointing power has discretion to determine the quali fications of the soldier applicant. Dever vs. Humphrey, 68 Kan. 759. But this discretion must be exer cised in good faith, and its willful abuse and wanton disregard of the purposes j of this act would subject the appoint ing officer to a prosecution under sec tion 6510 general statutes 1901. To your third question. I would an swer that this law should receive-the same respect and obedience given to all laws and county attorneys should in stitute prosecutions for its violation wherever, under all the circumstances there Is a reasonable ground to hope for convictions. My attention has been called to cer tain extraordinary proceedings which are projected to test the validity - of house bill 33, but in my judgment any authoritative decision under the con stitutional question which may be raised can only be secured by a crimi nal prosecution or in sucn an unusual case as arose in tiooaricn vs. jvuicnen, CONDITION OF WHEAT.

' The answer of the. National Co operative Burial association of Galena to the ouster suit commenced against It by Attorney General Jackson, on the ground that the company is not com plying with the state laws, was filed this morning in the supreme court. The answer admits practically all of the allegations of the state but insists that the company has complied with the insurance laws of the state enacted at the 1903 session of the legislature, and that there Is no reason why it should be compelled to suspend busi ness. Its plea is that the case be dis missed and the costs taxed against the state. WORKING FOR YASHBURN Effort WiU Be Made to Make Tills Banner Week In Securing Funds. This week is to be the banner week of the Washburn committee now en gaged in raising $75,000 towards the endowment fund of the school from among the citizens of Topeka. Last week there was a great deal to dis courage the members of the canvassing committee. Commencement detracted from the efforts of some of those who are most prominent in helping to so licit the funds. Other college func tions also diverted attention. But now that school has been closed for the summer there is nothing to hin der the members of the committee who are connected with the college and who are doing the greater part of -the work. The committee in charge of the raising of funds met at the Copeland hotel today in an informal session and made some plans for the work of the week which if carried out as it now seems that they will, will mean much towards the securing or the desired amount. Dr.- Plass was out of the city on business today so that no re ports were made and no definite busi ness transacted. There are but eighteen more days in which to work and the remaining thirty-five thousand is to be raised in this time, which will mean about two thousand dollars per day. This week promises to add material ly to the endowment fund. The doc tors of the city who are Interested In the college through the Kaasas Med ical school have so far withheld their subscriptions to this fund. They have been planning to donate their offerings to the school in a tump sum ui- auuui. fifteen thousand dollars. The college later on has agreed to Taise an equal sum to that which the doctors raise for the endowment fund and with this amount to erect a building for the Medical college. Some announcement n regard to this fund win De ma-uc Murine- the latter part of the ween. Several other large contributions are nowVianglng fire and after a week of strenuous work the . committee hopes to have added several thousand auuiis to the fund. - - - TALK SPECIAL SESSION.

KAISER IS SUSPECTED. Japanese Hold Him Responsible for San Francisco Trouble. Tokio, June 10 A deputation of Japanese from the United States ap peared today before a meeting of the council of the Progressive party and presented a statement in substance as follows: "The settlement of the San Fran cisco trouble can- not be considered as final and a recurrence of the difficulty may be expected at any time. It is absolutely necessary to place the Jap anese-in a position to receive exactly the same treatmetn as is accorded Europeans. "The law segregating Japanese school children was passed years ago, but the authorities hesitated to carry out its provisions. Its sudden enforcement last year occurred soon after the return of Mayor Schmitz from Oeremany where he had an audience with Emperor William. Consequently some are in clined to attribute the mayor's anti- Japanese attitu.de to the influence of the Kaiser.' HASKELL THE WIN NER. He Is the Democratic Nominee for , . Governor of Oklahoma.
