A Great Welcome by Ail Classes

Visit to Count Apponyi —
sands Stand in Rain to See
the Former President.
Budapest. April IT.— Hungary received
! Theodora Roosevelt with op»n arms after
he crossed the frontier to-dny. popular en
thusiasm, according to the newspaper
■ editors, exceeding anything since the days
of Louis Kossuih.
The Journey after Mr. Roosevelt left the
train at Pressbura; to spend the afternoon
with Count Apponyi. whom he had enter
tained at Washington and Oyrter Bay, as
sumed almost the character of a triumphal
procession. The entire population of the
ancient capital of Hungary turned out, th«
Mayor and other city authorities greeting
J the ex-President at the station as the.
j apostle of liberty and i;eace.
At the three villages, each of which la
made up of a different race— Magyar. Slo
vak and German— which the party passed
1 through on the automobile trip to the Ap
ponyl castle Mr. Roosevelt was mot with
I equal enthusiasm. In each Instance the
president of the village, the pri»st. school
master, fire brigade In uniform and the
school children in white Sunday frock* and
sashes, bearing the Hungarian color.*,
: stopped the automobile to offer flowers and
words of welcome.
The return from the castle by another
route was marked by similar demonstra
tions, and when Budapest was reached, at 9
o'cKx'k to-night, the former President was
fairly mobbed at the station, which. in
Fpitc of the heavy rain, was surrounded by
thousands of Hungarians," cheering "wildly.
The Mayor of Budapest and representatives
from all the societies In the city were, ther;
t.i meet Mr. Roosevelt when he stepped out
Ci the platform, while hundreds of railroad
tarn from the yards clambered on top of tt. •
train to take part in the demonstration.
The university students, who Ml mass. .1
outside the building, <&ni "The Star
Spangled Banner" as the ex-President- was
wl.jyked away to his. hotel, through solid
walls of people who had waited patiently
in the rain to see him pass. At the hoV:l
ar.cther multitude had gathered, and re
fused to depart until Mr ' Roosevelt ap-
I^arr-d on the balcony to acknowledge tho
In his brief speech to the crowds around
the hotel Mr. Roosevelt reiterated what
he had said throughout the day in reply
to words »>f welcome at various points.
He recognized, he MM, the courage, devo
tion and ehlxalry of the Hungarians, and
he especially pleased them when he said
that one who had livfd as he had among
the cattlemen of the great W*e»t could
baal appreciate th«» extraordinary charac
ter of the descendants of horsemen.' who
had followed Arpad. th» Magyar national
hero. Into the plains of Central Europe.
After all was over to-night Mr. Roose
velt said that his reception reminded him
of demonstrations which he had witnessed
at the height of a hot political campaign
at home. He could only account for it on
the theory that to the Hungarians he rep
resented the Idea, deeply rooted In Amer
ica, of liberty and human rights.
The Hungarians evidently were deter
mined to show Mr. Roosevelt that he had
touched their hearts, and to make his re
ception as different as possible from that
in Vienna. Although ostensibly the guest
of Ambassador Hengelmiiller yon Henger
var the , ex-President Is in reality the
guest of the Hungarian government.
The programme for to-morrow Includes,
besides official calls on the Premier, Count
Khuen yon *Hedervary and Archduke Jo
seph, at whose royal palace crowning the
heights above the city he will be a guest
at luncheon, a visit to Francis Kossuth,
leader of the United Opposition, who Is
ill. a sightseeing trip, a visit to the House
of Parliament, where Count Apponyi will
bold a reception ir. his honor, and a din
ner at the Park Club, at which Baron and
Baron**-* Hengelmiiller will be the host's.
Practically all the following day will be
taken up with a trip by special train to
the state Arab breeding *.tu<l at Babolna,
as the guest of the Minister of Agricult
ure. The Premier's dinner will be the clos
ing function of Mr. Roosevelt's visit.
The former President authorized a cate
gorical denial to-day of reports telegraphed
from Vienna that he had discussed with
Kmpeior Francis Jo?rph the question of the
limitation «>f armaments, with the inten
tion of continuing to press the question
at Paris, Berlin and London.

Washington, April IT.
A GOOD BILL?— If Imitation Is the »in
ccrest form of flattery. Is not misrepre
rentntl n the strong.-st testimonial to ex
cellence? The National Conservation Asso
ciation ha* issued a circular letter to Its
members regarding the Smoot waterpower
bill, recently described In this column. In
which the official* of the association so serl
oufly misrepresent the bill as to suggest the
probability that without misrepresenting It
they could not find sufficient objection on
which to base an effective opposition. 'The
Srr.oot bill has no Justification. declares the
circular letter. "It abdicates national
power and shirks national responsibility In
a matter of the utmost Importance for all
time to the wellbelng of the nation and the
Individual citizen." Then follows four pages
of general conservation argument, after
which It Is stated that "it is unnecessary to
discuss the minor features of these bills
(several other pending measures having
been described) further than to call atten
tion to the fact that the Smoot bill requires
the state to retain the fee simple title. This
would permit leases for ?99 years. It also
requires the state to undertake an unde
fined system of regulation and authorizes
It to fix th*> price to consumers for ten-year
periods. The Smoot bill would give to the
big waterpower Interests precisely what
they want and sought In vain from the last
Congress and administration— absolute Im
munity from all effective federal regulation
and control. It would put the users of
waterpower completely In the hands of
these bis power Interests.
THE FACTS.— From the conservation as
sociation* description of the Smoot bill it
would appear, as the circular practically
state?, that the "minor features" of the
bill are hardly worthy of discussion. The
fact I*, however, that, while the bill pro
vides that power sites shall he transferred
to the states. It does so with the express
condition, first, that the states shall never
alienate the. title to such. >ite;>. and, second,
that the rates charged the users of such
sit»s shall be readjusted every ten years.
The conservation association, b« It noted,
says the bill "authorizes" the states to fix
the price to consumers for ten-year periods.
Tiie bill compels the state to fix the price
every ten years, and the penalty of any
dlsresard of the provisions of the bill Is re
veision of the sites to the federal govern
ment. It Is. of course, quite possible that
there are defects In the Smoot bill. Sena
tor Smoot said to-day that be would be per
fectly agreeable to an amendment which
would Impose a limit on the possible length
of leases, hut the course of the conservation
association strongly suggests that legiti
mate reasons for opposing the measure can
not easily be found. The fundamental prin
ciple for which reasonable conservationists
stand Is embodied In the bill. That is pro
hibition of the permanent alienation of the
fee' simple title to these sites, together with
a readjustment of the rental at sufficiently
frequent periods to enable the charges to
be , proportioned to such increase of value
as must result from the settlement of the.
surrounding country and the consequent
enhancement of the value of the concession.
It In also a fact tnat this principle is pre
cisely 'the one to which "the big water
power interests are opposed."
It Is a well established fact that the fed
eral government has no right or title to
the water In streams. That has been es
tablished by a number of Supreme Court
decisions, the latest being the Colorado-

determination of the House- leaders to add
to the powers of the Tariff Board an.l spe
cifically to delegate to the board the power
which the President and the Attorney Ge.i
era] believe It enjoys under the existing law.
which was related In this column this morn-
Ing, constitutes a distinct triumph for the
President, who had to make a strenuous
fight to secure the creation of the Tariff
Board In the Payne lew. It further dem
onstrates that the President's conceptlcmof
th'r temper of the public was far more ac
curate than that of the leaders of < '*r.xr*->%
a year ago. The President, who li always
averse to anything suggestive of gloating,
has failed In his speeches to make as much
of the Tariff Board and Its possibilities >as
its" creation would warrant. and he has.
moreover, been loath to augment th» diffi
culties of securing the appropriation of suf
ficient funds to enable the board to carry J
on Its work by laying particular stress on
t!i" Importance and «cope of the work which
h© purpose* to Intrust to that board. Pub
lic sentiment now proves to t>- si strongly
with the President, however, th it there Is
little doubt that Congres3«wlll grant the .ip
pioprlatlon he has asked, and Indeed. M
has been told, the House leaders are now
anxious to secure ail the credit posstble
for liberality toward the further* inve'sflga
tlon of the tariff and Its effects.
Lawyers who attended the lectures of the
late Justice Brewer at George Wash
ington University recall a curious coinci
dence In connection with the rehearing .>'
the- Standard Oil and the Tobacco Trust
case.*. A* long ago as 1 S<»l Justice Brewer,
lecturing or "The Constitution," outlined
the trust problem now pending in the Su
prrme Court. Among other examples he
cited they supposititious case of a butcher
who refused to purchase his supplies from
the large packers, but insisted on buying
from local producers, jmd of the destruction
of his trade by the big packers through the
Instrumentality of a local shop, established
for the sole purpose ■ f destroying the dealer.
which was accomplished by means of "cut
prices." "That, gentlemen." paid the Jus
tice, "Is a very grave problem, but It if
one which will h;ivo to he met. I do not
attempt to indicate how the problem will
b ■ solved. That Is for you to decide In the
fulness ( t time, and some of you will have
to solve it — but I will not. It will come
after my time." And Justice ' Brewer d<> -1
when this very problem lay on his desk
awaiting decision.
sentative Nicholas Lon«worth Is relating
to his colleagu-s In the House a pathetic
tale which h» calls "'the sorrows of a
son-in-law." Mr. I^ongworth declares that
ever since the announcement of his en
gagement to the daughter of President
Roosevelt his every utterance has prompt
ly been assumed to have been Inspired by
Mr. Roosevelt. When the colonel went to
Africa, however, Mr. Longuorth avers, he
expected to get credit for at leant a little
originality, but he admits his hope was
baseless. He ha« Just received a letter
which reads. In part: "Whenever you net
off anything worth saying, which is mighty
nUm, we all know it Is Inspired by your
distinguished father-in-law, and most of
your constituents congratulate you on. the
colonel's early return. When he lands on
American soil you may expect us to read
your rpeecliff, but In the mean time you
might as well save yourself the trouble of
mailing them." Mr. Ixtnsworth submits
that the public life of the son-in-law of a
great man is hardly, worth the living.

body's answer was a statement of th» ;
personnel of that committee of settle
ment, with their recommendation that
such settlement be accepted.
"The examiner of the Insurance De
partment." he said, "has reached a dif
ferent conclusion from the same fact*
and circumstances." and he added that
he did not care to discuss any question
of comparing the committee with th*
examiner as to Judgment and integrity.
"I maintain that the spirit and letter of
the Armstrong law have been upheld by
the company," he declared, -and that we
have lived up to the provisions of the
law. If It be shown that we have not. I
must take the consequences."
Mr Peabody explained that the pay
ment of $230,000 in the settlement by the
firm of Charles H. Raymond & Co. was a
matter outside of the company's control.
He supposed that Raymond & Co. made i
the payment under some agreement with i
the McCurdys, and said that, so far as j
he had ever known, the Raymond & Co.
claim of $656,527 97 against the Mutual
was exclusively for commissions under
contract as agent.
Superintendent Hot. hk!«s said on Sat
urday that the report had been in th"
hands of the Mutual for some time, and
that the company evidently concurred in
the findings, because no hearing on the
report was requested, as provided for by
the Armstrong law in the event of -•
company disagreeing with the findings
•I the examiners.
Apart from the three criticisms men
tioned, the Superintendent stated that I
the company had complied in the main
with the Armstrong law, and that on the
whole the report was complimentary to
the company.
Ce~pl. nents for the Company.
The Mutual, it appears from the report,
had on December 31. 130?. ledger assets
of $.I.'. 171 30 and total admitted as
?<ts of $544.185.205 99. Its premium in
come from policyholders aggregates more
th m $50,000,000 and its Interest and rent
Income approximately $25,000,000. Dis
bursements for the benefit of policy-hold
ers amount to nearly $50,000,000 annually.
Expenses of the company have been
rut more than half since 190*. the year
