fc>BEPH>ENT ROOSEVELT REACHED GRO TON YESTERDAY AFTERNOON. JjTO CHANGE IV CONDITION OF THE SICK EOT — THE PRESIDENT WILL REMAIN UNTIL ASSURED OF HIS RECOVERY. Groton, Mass.. Feb. 9.— Although President Jlocsevelt on his arrival at the Groton School this afternoon did not find his son. Theodore, jr., alarmingly ill with pneumonia, still th* lad's pondition was not sufficiently reassuring to war —nt the President's Immediate return, to the jiatlonaJ capital. His boy, with two school jnatef, Horace B. Potter, of New-York, and •WDliain Garnmell, of Providence, both having pneumonia, lay in large, airy rooms on the sec ond floor of tne college infirmary. Mrs. Roose velt has been with her son for two days. He greeted hi* father cheerily this afternoon. To-nigM It was stated that his condition is >icchanged, and that he is holding his own well, Absolute quietness reigns, save for a northwest gale, vhich fairly screams across the hill over which the college school buildings are spread. The school fcas Veen dismissed, and the 150 boys have scattered to their homes upon an enforced vacation. AH the sick boys are having the best medical attention and nursing and everything Is being done to bring them back to health. The Presi dent's etay her© is indefinite, although it is not believed that it will be prolonged much after "Wednesday, unless his son's condition takes a turn for the worse. Pneumonia being always alarming, the President has thought It well to stay here until he has some assurance of his bod's recovery- THE PRESIDENT'S JOURNEY. The President arrived here at 2:30 o'clock this fcftemoon after an uneventful trip of fourteen hours from Washington. He came on the pri vate car Rambler, arriving in Jersey City soon pfter 7 a. m. The car was immediately trans ferred by boat across Harlem River and left Mott Haven on a special train at 8:20 a. m. A fctop was made at New-Haven, where a dispatch was handed to the President, 6tating that his •ion's condition was encouraging. No other stops Were made until Providence was reached, where ■here was a slight delay on account of an acci- Jder.t to the engine. The train pulled Into the jßouth St&tlcn in Boston at 12:45 p. m., but war Immediately hauled out from the station and #\round the city through Cambridge to the Grand Junction Station of the Boston and Maine Rail road. The run from Boston to Aver Junction «-«s made In a little over forty minutes, and there the car wss transferred to the Worcester, Nashua and Rochester division of this road, the train arriving in Groton at 2:3<\ There were ro crowds at any of the stations except at Ayer, where there was a gathering of pbout five hundred. The President came out of Jite seclusion and bowed to the crowd from the t*ck platform, his appearance being greeted ••rttlj cheers. The Rev. S. Endlcott Peabody. the principal of the Groton School, was at the Groton station to fneet the President, and with him was the Rev. Billings, his assistant. The President, *ith Secretary Cortelyou, immediately Jumped Jntos. two 6eated democrat wagon, and Mr. Bill- Jnss 4rove the party rapidly up the hill to the school building. GREETED BY MRS. ROOSEVELT. Mrs. Roosevelt was at the window as the president drove past into the yard, and greeted tiro as ha mounted the stairs. The two imme diately went to the 6ick boy's room, and the President was delighted to find that his son's fcead ™ very clear, and that he was overjoyed to see his father. The President did not re jnain long, however, although he spent several iours ln the office on the ground floor. The President and Mrs. Roosevelt, together %ith Secretary Corteiyou. are being entertained sit the house of William Amory Gardner, brother-in-law of Mrs. John L. Gardner, of Bos ton, a very wealthy man, but nevertheless one Hi th« instructors in the school. It appears that a number of th<* boys have IContracted colds during the last three or four weekfc, probably from strenuous exercise and Jack of caution afterward. It Is said that it has leen the habit of some of them to play handball Jn the closed court, and then, while perspiring freely, to daeh across the campus to the gym- Ussium. clad only in the lightest of clothes. Only /onr, however, contracted pneumonia, although tne case resulted fatally, that of Carroll Sodges, who died here about ten days ago. The ether boys contracted severe colds, but were able to return to their homes when school was dlßTsissed last week. The physician in charge is Dr. William B. barren, cf this town, the regular attending phy tidan cf the school, but Dr. George B. ShattueK, ft Boston, has made almost daily trips here •tnee the three serious cases developed. A RECORD RUN TO BOSTON. THE PRESIDENT'S CAR SHIFTED ACROSS THE CITY— SCENES AT THE STATION'S. Boston, Feb. 9.— President Roosevelt came to Boston for the first time since assuming his ■office as tha head at the nation to-day, on his "way to Groton. His visit was a momentary one almost, for he did not leave his car, and, In accordance with his own plan, through fa miliarity with the situation here, was trans ferred from one railroad system to another by Means of a connecting link over the tracks of a third railroad. This plan, which was the most expeditious under the circumstances, set at taught the arrangements of both the police to look after his safety In crossing the city and of the railroad officials who had prepared another special train for his use en the last Plage of his Journey. The President's train over the New- York, >>'CTr-Haven and Hartford Railroad pulled into the South Station at 12:45 o'clock this afternoon, tfter the Quick run of four hours and fifteen Sautes, the fastest run ever made over the ■yatem from New- York, beating by two minutes the record made by the train bearing Thomas w. Lawson. two years ago. As soon as the train stopped Secretary Cortelyou appeared on <*• platform of the President's car and stated to the railroad officials who met him that the President desired that his car be shifted to the j Boston and Albany road, and then sent over by ***• way of Cottage Farms and Bomerville to *h« yards of the Fitchburg division of the Bos ton ana Maine. Secretary Cortelyou was informed that car- J^ges were in waiting and that at the north Nation the private train of President Lucius Tuttle of the Boston and Maine road was in **adiaes! to take him to Groton. Secretary Cor t*lyou re-entered the car. returning in a few Minutes to state that the President desired his car «st around as requested, as he did not w &!s to leave it. Immediately a shifting engine cat* ¥£l tA ln and attached to the President's ■tn.

Hanford, wife of a commission mer chant, who lives in the San Remo Hotel. Through Sweeney the df-tectives found a young woman and a young man. both of whom con fessed, Jt is said, to a share in the theft of the Jewels. The jewelry stolen is almost entirely presents given to Mr?. Hanfcrd at her wedding, three months ago. Sweeney was employed as an elevator boy at the San Remo. Mrs. Hanford after breakfast on Saturday returned to her apartment and found that her jewel casket, kept in the top drawer of her dresser, had been taken. Yester day when Sweeney was arraigned h» was re manded in default of bail. About noon a messenger went to the West Sixth-eighth-fit, station with a letter for Sweeney. This was intercepted by the de tectives, who found, they say, that It was from Mabel Hyman, of No. 271 West Fifty-second-st. The letter was then delivered to Sweeney.

HER LIFE WAS ON'Q OP CONSTANT CARB AND THOUGHT KOFI OTHERS. To the Kdltor of The Tribune. Sir: In the death of Mrs. Osborn on February 7 the> city ha? lost a representative of much that is best In its life. It seems fitting that a more ex tended sketch than the usual brief notices should be published, and I venture to send the following: She was the eldest child of Mr. and Mrs. Jona than Sturses, and was born at her parents' early home. In Beaver-st., on February 9, 1830. This was then a neighborhood of pleasant private dwellings. The growth of New-York Is Illustrated by the changes of residence to Greenwlch-st. In 1833. to Murray-st In 1544 and to No. 5 East Fourteenth-st. in 1851, from which Mrs. Osborn was married In 1E53. In 1871 her husband and father bought adja cent property at Park-aye. and Thirty-sixth-s<t., which has continued to he the city home of the family. Mr. Sturßes was a leader in that jrroup of New- York merchants to whom both the city and coun try owe much of their prosperity. He was also In fluential in every movement that helped develop th« moral and Intellectual life of the community. From her father Mrs. Osborn inherited her singular abilities for Judging and clearness of vision In planning; from her mother she inherited her rare capacity for eerv|-«. Amonr the institutions that Mrs. Sturges was Influential in establishing and directing were the Wilson Industrial School, the School of Design .for 'Women, the Society of Decora tive Art. the H.ihnemann Hospital and the Wom an's Beard of Missions of the Reformed Church. Of her (rlrlhona Mrs. Osborn retained bright rec ollections. The great fire of 1833 and other Inci dents of note she described vividly in after years. Mr. Osborn was a prominent East India merchant, closely associated with Mr. Sturges in financial In terests. In 1853 he was chosen president of th* Illinois Central Railroad. After their marriage for several years Mr. and Mrs. Osborn made their home In Chicago, from which city he pushed his road over th« prairies of the State and southward until, after the close of the Civil War, It extended to New-Orleans. The part Mr. Osborn took in the development .of the Mississippi Valley has never been fully toM. Some day. he will be known as In the foremost rank of the men who have made the nation. In the tremendous responsibilities he assumed, and the constant strain under which he labored Mr*. Osborn w«3 both the balance? and the main Support of her husband Without her culm. wl*« and sympathetic Interest In all that rr.nr.rned him his life woUld have hroken under the stress For Urn flret twenty years of his married life ho was f.f.-htir.s a constant battle ae^inpt nature anl ad ver.se men, and most of the rime received but faint support from those on whose interest he had the light to call. In Jowett's '■Recollections of Tenny son" a statement is made of tlie poet's wife which may with absolute truth be affirmed or Mrs. Os born: "The greatest influence would be passed o\-^r in silence if I were to omit her name. She was her husband's best critic, and the one whose authority he moat willingly recognized." In the laree philanthropies and the Innumerable objects of personal beneficence that Interested Mr. Osborn, his wife Wai both an inspiration and a pulde. Together they orpanlzed the Training: School for Nurses connected with Bellevue Hospi tal — the first of its kind in America — and were its largest supporters Vntii the day of her denth this school was her constant care. The Children's Ail Society, thf Hospital for the. Ruptured and Crip pled, th^ Half Orph.in Asylum and the city mis sions were not only larßolv supported, but carefully directed, by Mrs. Oshorn, either personally or throußh hf-r sons. The^e and other institutions were hut a part of her interests. Nor were they limited to tho city. Many In New-Orleans, Chicago and other places have loet In her a constantly h'-lpful friend. In lSr.9 Mr. Oshorn purchased an extensive tract in the Highlands of the Hudson, opposite West Point. There for the remaining years, except dur ing the winter months, they made th^lr home There aIM her surviving sons have their summer homes. The estate has been gradually enlarged and developed, until it is one of the most beautiful in America. In the Highlands Mrs. Osborn WHS the friend of a multitude, many of whom looked to her for support. In Dr John Brown'i "Spare Hours" there Is a sketch of a gentlewoman that seem* written of Mrs. Osborn: "The love of the r><-"ple for Ikt ami their pride in her were wonder ful Those who were nearaat to her— the inrnat.-s of her household, her dependents — cherished for her something like adoration Bbc was so tender heart ed, and interested in ail their Interests, so steadfast a friend. So modest was she, so just in h<T sense of bereelf, that every one was at ease with her, and felt that whatever she did and said and f<-lt was as real as the material objects about them. Sho was always being and doing good In a multitude of way.-." Her life, may almost he said to have heen one lons summer day, not without its clouds, hut. on the whole, nappy, delightful and beneficent in no ordinary decree. Few have left the world s.i rt> garded with Immediate, unmixed and deserved af f. . tlon, and fewer .silll have retained to the last, as sh<> <iid the pure, fresh, unbluntod attachments of childhood to their friends. T'ntil death bright. truthful, artless as :; girl, v ith all the serious and "thoughtful breath" that becomes a "traveller b-> !w. . n life and death." She retained to the last all her faculties and affection? -her memory her humor her Interest In life, her tender fidelity to friends, ber love of nature and all things fair. The beauty, as well as the power, of Mrs. Os horn's character was best seen in her home. There she rilled in love, holding by an attachment that Was uiKiucstioned the devotion of her husband and children The loss of her only daughter several vrars «po followed almost Immediately by the death by drowning- of hrr second son, was ,i grlev- OUS sorrow. The long illness of her husband was no ordinary strain, and his death in 1594 left her very lonely. But through these and other trials she was sus tained by an unfaltering faith. No description of Mrs Osborn can be adequate that fails to note her SDlritual niituro. As was said of another. "When <-he nraved she saw the face of Ood smiling on her" And so nfter a life of constant helpfulness, of brave endurance and of large attainment In tho bettering of the world, she has passed bryond our vision "The Pilgrim they laid in a large upper chamber whose windows opened toward the east, and the name of the chamber was Peace."

OLD SCHOOL PROTECTIONIST ON OBLIGA TION TO CUBA. To th»- Editor of The Tribune. Sir: I note the comments ln your editorial columns an.l Washing-ton dispatches on the action of the Ways and Means Committee in the matter of tax reduction, as related to aid to Cuba by lower rates on sugar and tobacco, and I approve them. I am a protectionist of the Clay and Greeley school and a Republican of I>s^ I was a member of the convention that nominated Salmon P. Chase for Governor of Ohio, ln l s ns, and I was also a member of the convention that nominated Abraham Lincoln for President ln the, Wigwam, at Chicago, in IS6O, and I was a Whig protectionist before the Republican party was formfd. and from this stand point I speak. The original theory of protection was to foster in their Infancy such industries as were adapted to our natural advantages and facilities. Then capital was scarce and interest high. Now Infant in dustries have become full grown and stalwart. Capital is abundant and Interest low. 2 per cent United States bonds commanding a premium of 8 per cent or 9 per cent. Conditions have essentially changed, and theories and policies must change with conditions, and we must approach more nearly to a tariff for revenue. discriminating ngainst luxuries and vices, and in favor of the things we can successfully make or produce, ami making free things of universal use by our people which we cannot produce at all, or of which we produce only a small percentage of our consumption, such as tea and sugar, not forgetting reciprocity. President McKinley clearly forecast the trend of events, and wisely sounded a note of warning in his Buffalo address, and we protectionists must take heed and ourselves modify ami reform our tariff policies or our friends the enemies of all protection will soon do it for us in a way to in volve, trouble and disaster to the country. The people will not much longer stand it to be taxed as now for the benefit cf the few cane and beet sugar producers of this country: such aid as it may be lust and wise to give had better be by bounty, with sugar free. In the case of Cuba, the argument Is infinitely stronßpr for free sugar, because there is added to pecuniary Intel and expediency the highest ob lipatlon of honor — yrs. of common honesty. The strong, wise words of President Roosevelt on this subject ln his annual message find a response in every honest American heart, and woe to the Congressmen who forget or Ignore them! Only cowards are afraid to do right, but brave men fear to do wrong. WIT. I. Ann WARNER. Chattanooga, Term . Feb. 6, 13j2. THE CHAPELS OF TONOUES. To the Editor of The Tribune. Sir: Your correspondent J. D. Burrell. of Brook lyn, has blundered badly. In his strictures upon the. Chapels of Tongues of the Cathedral of St. John th« Divine he has shown himself equally In capable of recognizing their purpose or their sub ordinate relation to the cathedral Itself. They have no aim. as expressing types of Christianity, but rather types of nationality. They do not stand for branches of the Christian Church, but for varieties of Christian people who come to New-York unacquainted with its language. For them the Episcopal Church to-day provides In New- York every Sunday services ln seven fit eight different tongues. These services it is also pro posed to provide at the cathedral, the chapels In which they are held being so arranged as to open into the cathedral itself, so that the foreigner may find his way there as soon as he can understand our spoken language That Is all To read Into such a plan dis paragement of Presbyterians or anybody else is inde -a the act of a "mere" Presbyterian. That great and noble Church, as represented by any and every worshipper, is to find, with all other Chris tian people Us welcome not in any subsidiary chapel, but* in the treat choir and nave, where snaee lid welcome will be equally wide and warm. •New-York, Feb.

Though the exposition has been ope.i since December 1, not until last week were the buildings all fin ished. . The crowds have been disappointingly small so far, but I expect to see them Increase after Lent.

The steamship Philadelphia, of the American Line, which arrived here yesterday, broke on her voyage the record for distance of communi cation with the land by the Marconi wireless telegraph system. On February 1 the vessel was a few miles off the Lizard at 12:15 p. m. Mes sages were then exchanged, and the telegraph ing was continued till the following day. The last message was sent when the Philadelphia was one hundred and fifty miles from land. It was from the American Line officials, in Eng land, to Captain A. R. Mills. The voyage was a rough one from the start. There was a delay of eighteen hours at Cher bourg, where the vessel arrived on Frebruary 1. She was at first unable to receive passengers. She put to sea, returning to Cherbourg Harbor the next day, when passengers embarked. Cap tain Mills said, of the voyage that he had never before experienced such terrific weather. Waves continually washed the decks of the ship and the wind was bitter. On account Of the strong ebb tide considerable difficulty was experienced by the tugboat men In docking the Philadelphia here. The big steamship bumped into the sidewheeler Glen Isl and, of the Starin Line, which was tied up at her pier. A rail, eight or ten feet long, was torn away on the Glen Island and some of the other woodwork was splintered. MUSICAL NOTEB. MR. PADEREWSKI'S PROGRAMME.
