Mr. Roosevelt's first act after alight-
Ing was to shake Hoxscy*s hand vigor
"It was irrrat! . First class! It was the
finest experience I have ever had." he de
clared. "I wish I could stay up for an
hoar, but I haven't the time this after
coon." •
"Did it feel acarcy"" he was asked.
"Not a bit: not a bit-**
"What were your sensations?"
•Oh, It was perfectly fine. I enjoyed
every minute of it."
Mcv, Warned His Passenger.
Hoxscy said that Mr. Roosevelt made
a good passenger, except that he en-
Joyed the trip so much he was afraid
the ex-President would fall out or In
terfere with the engine, which was roar
ing at his Fide. He waved his hands at
the crowd so vigorously that Hox*cy
called out to him:
"Keep your hands on the rail. Col
Mr. Roosevelt, who bad forgotten to
hold himself in. waved h!s hands once
more and then obeyed orders.
Governor Had'.cy. who admitted that
IMs heart had been in his mouth through
out the flight, drew a long breath and
explained hi? anxiety on the ground that
«*. his Jurisdiction extended up into the
r.ir as well as over the surface of the
State, ha was distressed for fear some
thing would happen to the ex-President.
Mr. Roosevelt laughed like a boy.
■took hands with everybody within
r«ach, and climbed into his automobile.
Bay** he must be off for clayton '
where ha had promised Mr. Bartholdt
to tnak a speech. The aviators were
disappointed that he could not stay
longer, but a man whose iferae was not
leaned, driving a b< plane, did wonderful
Stunts. not only circling the Roosevelt
automobile again and again, making the
sharpest turns and the most startling
dives and swoops, but apparently turn
ing a number of complete somersaults.
J^e Blanc, tin Frenchman, not to be out
done, also accompanied the Roosevelt
car, circling it, exceeding it in speed,
turning back and waving Mi hand, all
to the intense delight of the ex-Presl
det. who was so pleased that he could
hardly articulate anything beyond By
G*<srge! Its- great! Its wonderful!"
and so on. Both machines accompanied
the automobile for about a mile.

Being already behind his schedule.
Mr. Roosevelt gave Ml to cut loose

cut loose, all right. When the automo

Mr. Roosevelt spoke from the court
house steps In Clayton to a large crowd,
and almost the first thing he said was
that he had been "up in the air in an
American machine, with an American
to guide and operate It." The people in
that district are mostly Germans, and
many of them thought the ex-President
■was joking- When they see the news
papers to-morrow morning they will
find out that he was not.
From Clayton a run was made through
fcevtral villages to Ft. Louir. and a brief
ttop was made at the old state fair
grounds, where more than a thousand
echool children were path* red to greet
Mr. Roosevelt He spoke to them
briefly, apologizing for being late, and
Baying, in part:
"I have had a great time in St. Louis.
It eecras to me to be a wide-awake
town. Certainly it Is the only place
that ever put me up in the air." - Then
he told them of his flight in the .aero
plane, adding: "As I know you all well,
I know that you would all play hoo! y

know you -won't blame me for being

Alter dinner at the Governor's Mr.
Jloosevclt proceeded to the great Coli
ceum. which has th*- reputation of seat
ing some twelve thousand persons. Cer
tain it is that it seated to-night ail it
could hold and not a few were com
pcUed to remain on the outside. As has
been said, Mr. Roosevelt talked of the
turifE, for his "new nationalism" and
jit'ine politics.
Great Reception at Coliseum.
Mr. Roosevelt's reception at the Coll
«*>um was truly remarkable. Had such
a thing been possible as a pre-arranged
programme, whereby the enthusiasm of
his WfcACTjJ receptions was to be grad
ually increased until its climax was
reached at St. Louis, the result could
Stave been no better achieved. Of all
the receptions given him in the entire
five weeks that he has travelled in this,
country since he returned from abroad
none has equalled the one given him to
i.:r),i by the magnificent audience which
crowded the great St. Louis auditorium
to its full capacity, both seats and aisles.
Having been introduced by Governor
■aaVl as the President who had
"aroused the slumbering consciences of
tiie American people to the abuses which
had come to be the custom In America
by circles," Mr. Roosevelt ■ . m 'led to
draw an analosy between the political
condition in hi- own state, New York,
find that !n Missouri. He declared that
la New York the so-called Democracy
had so far deviated from its original
policies and had so far become the tool
of Wall Btreet that it was now enough
to make Andrew Jackson, of Tennessee,
and "Tom" Brnton. <.j Missouri, turn in
their graver, and continued as follows:

Declaring that above all question? of
party must come the fundamental ques
tion of honesty, he said that all who in
this state stood for equal opportunities
for all men and special privileges for
none must vote for that party repre
sented in this state by Governor Hartley.
Mr. Roosevelt then took up the principles
of the new nationalism, and declared
that every principle t)»at policy con
tained was to be found in the policies
and personality of Abraham Lincoln.
"Loyalty to the mighty «lead does not
consist only of praising those who arc
ti- ad." he declared. •'Why. all men do
that nowadays, but loyalty to those who
have passed consists in so living in the
present as to portray the principles for
which they stood in what was th. the
Sjeaking of the tariff he said he cheer
f;;ly admitted there was a time when,
h;.d "our opponents acted with reason
able wisdom, they might have made us
trouble. But they did not act with
reasonable wisdom. Instead of that
they, proved themselves worthy of the
trust we have always reposed in them."
There was no doubt whatever in his
mind, he said, that the conviction of a
great majorits' of the American people,
regardless of party, was that thero
should be a protective tariff, and that U
should be measured by the difference In
Deal of production here and abroad. The
onl> differ* nee that had remained,
therefore, was the method by which thai
end was to be achieved. He had no dc
sir»> to sneak of the past. < rlticism and
recrimination would lead to widening in
stead of closing the b.each which had
♦ xisted. Therefore the question of the
hour was the question of. the future,
how best to achieve that end which all
The Two Parties Contrasted.
Mr. Roosevelt closed his speech with a
vigorous attack on the Democratic party
and an appeal to the people to support
j the Republican party. He said:
Our opponents stand fcr nothing. In one
state they claim to represent a radicalism
so extreme and so foolish that if there
were any attempt to apply it in practice it
would Invoke the most absolute reaction.
In other states they stand avowedly, or,
if not avowedly, they stand in reality, in
spite of hypocritical professions to the con
trary, for open reaction.
They have no coherent policy. A party
that nominates Mr. Bryan as a radical
one year and Mr. Parker as an ultra-con
servative next time, and then Mr. Bryan
again, and then waits to see if anybody
wont carry an election somewhere so they
can nominate him again— tnat party had
forfeited the right to the respect snd sup
port of independent citizens who seriously
wi.-h well in th»'ir native 'and.
We have a coherent po.icy. We have had
diflieuUies. We are settling them, not by
a compromise of principles but by coining
it< her on a platform which Is one of
high principle and also one of proved effi
ciency. We ask you to support us. We
ask you to support us In Missouri, as in
New York, because we preach the sanv.
doctrine in Missouri and in New York;
because what I say to you to-night Is ex
actly wilt 1 should say In every state of
this Union.
Broadens "New Nationalism."
Addressing an audience of the type to
which he especially likes to speak, Mr.
Roosevelt materially broadened his pol-
Icy of "new nationalism" by declaring
that .t was obviously impossible to
achieve control over corporations
through forty-six Or forty-eight states,
but that such -Control must be vested In
the federal government. Mr. Roosevelt
has hinted at this proposition on pre
vious occasions, but this is the first time
he has actually expressed himself In
terms impossible of misunderstanding.
This, the most Important economic
declaration the former President made
to-day, was in the course of his speech
to the St. Louis Traffic Association,
composed, of both shippers and railroad
men. at the elaborate luncheon which
they had prepared in his honor. He
spoke rth great force and precision,
and from, the frequent applause with
which his assertions were greeted it is
a reasonable conclusion that they car
ried conviction, even to a class of men
who have been disposed to regard any
estenaton of governmental sapervtsloa
o\'-r their [jroperty with :ij>jir<-M<-ns--ion.
if not actual hostility.
In a certain sense, however, Mr. Roose
velt was bringing coals to Newcastle,
for it was Charles Xagel. now Secretary
of Commerce and Labor, a resident of
this city and long a distinguished mem
ber of the Missouri Bar Association,
who before that association and In this
very city In 1907 expressed precisely the
same views as did the former President
-day. and who as a member of Presi
*]♦ Nt Taft s Cabinet has consistently in
sisted on this step in the progress of
federal economics, he having been, with

session of Congress.
Four Speeches in This State.
Colonel Roosevelt announced this
morning a change In his schedule
whereby he- will make at least four po
litical speeches in the New York car.i
paign before returning to New York
City. Instead of returning through Har
risburg and Philadelphia, he will deviate
from his contemplated route at Colum
bus, proceeding by way of Cleveland, and
speaking next Friday at Dunkirk,
Jamestown. (Mean, Elmira and possibly
at Wellsville. This change is made at
the solicitation of State Chairman Pren
tice. It will defer Mr. Roosevelt's ar
rival in New York City from Friday
evening until Saturday fore-noon.
After commenting on the usefulness of^
Ike traffic club as a means of bring
lac home; la th? representatives of both
the ahJppera and the mllroads the fact
that neither party to the ever present
conflict possessed cither horns or hoofs. ,
Mr. Roosevelt launched out on the' sub
ject of the "new nationalism," develop^ I
in* It, as was only natural. in view of the
fact that he was addressing the repre
sentatives of the railroads as well as of |
the shippers.
He declared that th' corporation had
come to stay, thai it could not be dls
•,-.nF<<« with and that common s- r, .■ de
manded the adaptation of governmental
methods to th«: new conditions.
"It is necessary to face and to meet
the new conditions." he Mid, "You can
not dispense with the corporation, and
ye-t the corporation of to-day la too big
and too powerful to permit it to j.ureue
Jts way without regulation and control.
There must be supervision and control of
great railway corporations. More than
that, such regulation and control must
ba by one government. You connot
. forty-six or forty-eight govern
ments attempting 1 to control the cor
porations. If you try that the only re
sult will be that some of them will con
trol the corporations to their detriment
and some governments will be controlled
by the corporations to their detriment.
Moreover, in most cases it is not really
feasible to separate interstate from
intrastate commerce. It must he, there
fore, the federal government which ex
ercises the control, because that is the
only agency which is at once entirely
effiehnt and entirely Just. Aj»d having
pot control, the people through their
governmental agencies are hound, not
only as a matter of honor but as a mat
ter of self-interest, to exercise that con
trol with Justice and equity.
•"A working agreement must be had
between the shirp«r and the railroad
num. so that Justice shall bo done to
the shipper, to those who have invested
their money in the railroad and those
who work for the railroad. The most
fanaticrJ advocate of governmental inter
ference must gladly sec all differences
s.-ttkd by the parties themselves wher
ever that is possible, but the government
must have the power to step in and set
tl< the conflict where the parties thereto
are themselves unable to do so with
justice to all concerned.
"The man who advices against tryinp
new methods in grappling with the in
credibly complicated and important
problems of to-day i? as foolish as if he
advteed the troops of the United States
to show their loyalty to the past by
sticking to the flintlock musket."
Mr. Roo?evelt elaborated this thought
to a considerable, extent, and then cited
the case of Laclede. the founder of St.
Louis, whom he described a« having
come here in a rowboat and as having
carritd the proceed* of his barter away
In a rowboat. That man, he asserted.

could eaafly be left for his neighbors to
regulate and control hi? operations, but

tensive a scale that all the people are
it* neighbors and must exercise due re

agency, the government of the United
.Mr. RooEevelt then v>ent on to warn
his auditors apainst the crook, against
the employment of the man who obtained
for them even their Just deserts by
trickery and corruption, saylnp that
sooner or later the man who employed
such methods in the interest of the rail
road or the corporation would be found
employing them ag-ainst the railroad or
the corporation. And he also warned
them against the man who sreks political
office by promising to do injustice to the
corporation, for, he said, "a crook is just
as dangerous if he shows his crooked
neaa by doing injustice to the corpora
tion as if he did injustice for the cor
t oration. The man w h ? seeks public
mliro by doing to jl corporation that
which he ought not to do has the kini
«»i moral fibre which will certainly
weakfn wnen he is confronted by
tt-mrtation from the corporation."
Mr. Roosevelt held the closest atten
tion throughout his remark?, which were
frequently punctuated by applause, and
it was the common remark of the rail
road men present, after the luncheon.
thai If he were at no time more radical
than his speech of to-day would indi
cate, they could easily go with him all
the way.
For Lakes-to-Gu!f Waterway.
. Mr. Roosevelt's railroad speech was
the second 'of a busy day. Arriving in
St. Louis at 7:10 o'clock, he was im
mediately escorted to the Jefferson
Hotel, where an elaborate breakfast,
given by the Business Men's League, a
non-partisan organization, awaited him
After this Mr. Roosevelt spoke briefly
on the subject of waterway improve
ment, declaring himself unequivocally
for the deeper waterway from the Great
Lakes to the Gulf and telling the people
of St. Louis of the importance of retain
ing control of their waterfront.
When such a highway was completed
they would not be confronted by a situ
ation where the railroads controlled the
only available terminal, and thus con
trolled the means of water transporta
tion. His remarks were received with
ihe utmost enthusiasm.
After brea>: at v^v,nel Roosevelt was
taken on a dusty and breakneck auto
iiiotjile ride over the boulevard system,
through Forest Park and to the Country
Club, which, he inspected with interest
He viewed the golf links with apparent
pleasure, but seemed to find especial
solace in the mintlike green of the
nineteenth hole." The return trip was
made so as to permit a view of the
buildings of the Washington University
and the extensive park which now occu
pies the site of the former world * fair.
\ stop was made at the home of C. K.
Bixby where Mr Roosevelt viewed with
great interest and enjoyment the mag
nificent art collection of Colonel Blxby.

Early figures 081 the registration yes
terday indicated a comparatively light
total of names as the- probable result of
the day's work In preparing for the elec
tion, and. curiously, Jhis slowness of the
voters to record their names was more
marked In the downtown districts of
lower Manhattan than in the home dis
tricts of the upper part of the island.
The Sullivan clan along the Bowery and
adjacent territory seemed to be even
more dilatory in registering than the
voters of the Harlem and Washington
Heights sections, and even in the "Gas
House" district, where one doesn't do
business unless one votes, the Tammany
faithful seemed to be cither neglecting
or putting off the preliminary duty of
Down in East 3d street. In the 10th
HBBeiMj District, a heavy set woman
of fort ign birth kept the election officials
busy for a few moments. Slie had ap
parently been listening to some suffra
gette argument which she- had scarcely
grasped, as she walked into the registra
tion office with the statement that shi;
was ready now to attend to the matter
of voting.
An inspector told her that It was too
early, by at least a few years, for her
to vote, but it took more than the near
wit to make ...atters clear to the woman.
She finally went out. threatening that
she was going to report the whole regis
tration force to "Koosenfelter."
John Boyle, Jr., secretary of the Re
publican County Committee, said yes
terday that there waa no doubt that the
ful! strength of the Republican party
would be registered before the last day.
He pointed out that the most noticeable
decreases in the figures of the first day"*
registration, as compared with those of
1000, were In the Tammany strongholds
where the names of "Torn" Folty, 'Bi?
Tim" Sullivan and the late "Battery
Dan" Finn were revered. On the first
day figures published yesterday. Mi.
Boyle said the 2.\!d Assembly District in
Manhattan was the banner Republican
registration district. Up there the vot
ers turned out on Monday to the total of
6,47!>. an increase of 1,480 over the 4.99 D
names on the books «>f that district at
