people greeted the nation's chief, and for a
distunes of n mile the President and his party
passed through streets that were a solid mnss
of cheering citizens. The streets were bril
liantly lighted with colored arches, and the
national colors waved everywhere.
Tho Presidential party drew up nt tho Union
station at n tr. P. M. The Presldont wss ready
to alight almost as soon as tho train stopped,
and before the platoon of police could press
back the crowd which closed around tlin train.
As tho Itecoptlon Committee caroo forward,
having boarded the train In Council Bluffs, the
President remarked upon the comfort of his
journey, and turning to tho Reception Com
mittee, observed: Such a welcome would
make any one forgot tho fatigue of a thous
and such journeys.
Scarcely had greetings been exchanged when
the army and navy special arrived. The two
trains had crossed the Statu practically as two
ajjaW sections, running the last KM) miles almost
witktn sight of euoh other, the railroad officials
not desiring, for safety's sake, to place them
closer than twenty minutes apart.
The Beoeptlon Committee assigned the
visitors p oarrlagus and the procession moved
toward the centre of the olty. President
McKlnley. Mayor Frank . .Monies of
Omaha, and President Wattles of the Ex
position occupied the front carriage, ami
others spread out for a distance of several
hundred yards. King Ak-Har-Bon and f.isi of
hi knights, composing the secret entertain
ment organization of Omaha, acted as escorts
to the President. The Knights wore gsyly
attired and their steeds glistened in their
accoutrements of Mlver and gold Theyfonned
a cavalcade that added much to the
beauty of the procession. The Ak-Sar-llon
knights formed Into platoons us outriders, es
hortiug each carriage in four. There was
total absence to the eye of police protection,
with the exception of n few higher police offi
cial mingling with the knights: but in citi

and many detectives had been scattered
through the crowd.
The procession moved to the City Hall,

It was decorated with llfe-slzo pictures of
McKJnloy, the war heroes, and Innumerable
flags and electric lights. President McKlnlny
had the central seat, and around him were
placed other members of the official party.
The festivities opened almost Immediately.
Thejy consisted of a parado composed of forty
floats, historical and allegorical, lighted by
many electric lights Ingeniously arranged
so thst trolleys were fixed to tho over

wos conveyed to the floats as they were drawn
along by hnrulsomely eapnrlsoned horses.
The electrical display was ono of thn most
elaborate efforts of tho kind ever witnessed.
There were no speeches, and tho President
had a claincn to enjoy the situation fo tho full

A renarkabln scene was witnessed at the
itand when a magnificently caparisoned
Host, containing busts of the nvnl and army
heroes, passed. The float contained busts of
Dewey. Sampson, Schley. Holmon. Wnlnwrtght,
Shatter, nnd some of the lesser lights of the
-war. Thf shouts of the crowd were tremendous.
and lliev surged around the chariot as if they
'would carry It nway by main force. President
McKlnley arose with uncovered head and
.saluted T the float. This wus tho signal for even
greater applause. ,
When the float labelled "Tho Nation's

Gicnti.kmfn: When you favored me on the

of this State. I took occasion, while accepting
the nomination and expressing my deep sense
of the honor conferred, to promise thnt I

To the platform adopted by the Btnte Con

dorsement, from the first line to the last. I
stand upon the pledges anil declarations thore
made. At tha outset. I think It proper to ex
press my hearty concurrence In the line of
distinction drawn between State nnd national
matters, since It Is quite plain that the Gov
ernor of the State Is not officially concerned In
any of the questions which our national au
thorities are enllod upon to settle, and which,
happily, arc. in not a few important Instances.
quite removed from thn field of mere partisan

From tho tone of our political opponents, a
stranger might infer that thn State of New
York is a commonwealth of but little Impor
tance, either in point of population, commerce,
agriculture or manufactures. He would as
suredlv never learn, from anything said by
them thus far In the present canvnss, that the
State has a population of morn than six and a
half millions, thnt its chief city Is the greatest
of American municipalities nnd stands second
to London alone, that Its canals pass
through 180 nourishing towns, that over Its
railroads nearly on"-fhlrd of tho oxports
and Imports of the entire country aro moved,
that Its public schools arc engaged In the In
struction of 1.170,000 children, and, In short,
thnt It well deserves to be called distinctively
tho Empire State. It Is not to be believed thst
thn thoughtful voters of the Stats will give
their approval to a mode of campaigning so
little In harmony with their own dignity.
I note with pleasure the emphasis put on the
problem of onnal management by the Demo
cratic platform. In view of the report recently
made to Gov. Black by the commission ap
pointed by him In March of this year to Investi
gate the manner In which $0,000,000 of thn
public funds have been expended. It is hardly
an exaggeration to sar that "reform In oanal
management Is, In the State of New York."
"the supremo Issue of the hour." As thn report
just alluded to has been widely published by the
firess. It Is unnecessary for me to do more,
n this relation, than to lay my finger upon a
few of Its leading and uncontested conclusions.
The poople wore given to understand thnt,
with the $l.000.000 which they were nsknd to
authorize, and which thsy did authorize, the
Improvements In the watorwnys would be
completed. As the report shows, tho money
ha all been expended, with tho result Indi
cated by the following table:
"The actual condition of the work on the
different canals Is u follows:
Comvlettd IncompUte Work

Total all canals A5.70S 244.74 141.017
How the case stands, free from all technical
ities, is again set forth In the report. In tho fol
lowing cogent paragraph:
When the people voted to simply ti.ooo.OoO for
the improvement of the canals they wero led to lie.
lieve that amount sufficient for the work. The en
tire sum has beeu expended and the improvement la
not onc-balf done. They have demanded that they
be informed why the money has not sufficed for the
improvement and how their funds have been ex
pended. We have given such information aa to
expenditures as a dlllircnt investigation has
brought forth. They have also demanded that they
be told finally what money will tie needed to com
plete the work they have aanctloned, and we have
replied with all tbe deflnltenesa possible. The re
salt la aurprislng to those unacquainted with the
facts. Tne cost of Improving the canals will be
about two and one-hslf times what the people were
told would be necessary, while the facta we have
ascertained and reported account for the Improper
expenditure of a million of dollars, exclusive of
moneys paid out for ordinary and extraordinary re-
.airs, which amount to not leas than one million five
The spirit In which our opponents face this
problem may be Inferred from their endeavor
to obscure It under cover of references to Ques
tions that are in no degree involved in the
duties of thn Governorship from tholr refusal
to admit that there has been any wrong done
and from tho following rcmarkablo pledge In
their platform :
If there are errors in the system and In the law we
will correct them. If there has been fraud, we will
deter aud puuleh the wrongdoers.
It is thus evident that, to the Involving of tho
Stato In an expenditure likely to prove more
than double as large as the sum authorized by
tho people, they attach no sort of Importance
that they decline to accept the report of the
commissioners appointed ny tho Governor as
conclusive of Anything, ami. third, that theyl
have not yet become convinced that there have
been either orrors to correct or frauds to pun
ish. When we further remember that the
errors and frauds and partisan misuses of
power traced home and fixed by thn commis
sion were all committed by the supporters, rep
resentatives and followers of the gentlemen
who controlled the convention from whose
platform I have just quoted. It might seem as
If the appeal for a new lease of power were ad
dressed rather to the lovers of comedy than
to men with whom the conduct of public affairs
is a serious business. That the sober-minded
taxpayers of this State will not Intrust to
wrongdoers whose malfeasance has been made
manifest, the task of reforming, removing, aud
eradicating themselves. Is au expectation justi
fied by comparatively recent history.
At the present time there Is an Inquiry being
conducted by a commission of distinguished
merchants into the causes of the failure of the
port of New York to maintain its relative as
cendancy among the commercial centres of the
country. Cnn It bo doubted that one of the
causes Is to be found In tho wretched condition
to which tho waterways of the State have boon
reduced, or that there will lie still further loss
to lament if the hand of uncompromising re
form bo not, with little dnlay. applied to the
work of substituting Intelligence and Integrity
for incompetency and lareonous methods in the
management. If there be. in uny quarter, a
failure to appreciate both the important ser
vice which the canals have rendered In the
past and the vital relation In which they still
stand to the commerce of the State, the follow
ing passage from the report of the Commis
sioners already referred to may serve the pur
poses of enlightenment:
On the lines of these oanals are to be found no leaa
than 1 SO cities and towns, mauy of great Importance,
all active and flourishing. It is asserted by those
beat inf. irmed that the canals have been their crea
tor: that every one of them haa been effectually
aided by tbe atreamsof commerce on thecanela upon
which it is located, no one can deny.
Since l srm there baa passed over the Erie Canal an
aavrngsl tonnage of uierrhandiaeof the enormous

In the light of these facts, no intelligent
voter will fall to perceive the Importance of
bringing to an immediate nnd the shocking
and ruinous process of administration laid
bare In the report before me.

SHEA ELECTS FAS WYCK.
He Says He Will Run 80,000 Ahead of
Itooaevelt In Kings County.
When the reporters called at the "hoo
dooed" Democratic headquarters In Court
Square In. Brooklyn yesterday morning. Chair
man John L. Shea had a cheering statement
all ready for them. The battle, according to
Mr. Shea, is already as good as won. Coming
down to figures, Mr. Shea gives Van Wyck a
plurality of 20.000 over Itoosevelt in Kings
In spite of all this confidence of the Van
Wyck managers In Brooklyn the oollectlon of
the "sinews of war," In the shape of a glgantlo
assessment on placeholders, saloon keepers
and all others who are brought into close re
lations with the municipal machine, is to be
pushed forward as quickly and secretly as
possible. The various district leaders who
have charge of these collections have beon told
thnt the tight is a very tough one. and that the
borough of Brooklyn will get no more favors
from Tammany unless a respectable majority
is rolled up for Van Wyek.
Mr. Shea and his associate mnnngers sav
their first grand rally for Vnn Wyck. which Is
to take place to-morrow night in the Acad
emy of Music, will come up in proportions and
enthusiasm to the old-fashioned Hill demon
strations iu the same hall. Justice William .1.
Guynor is to preside, and. in addition to the
candidate himself. Mr. Edward M. Sheimrd
and Mr. Andrew McLean are to speak. Mr.
Joseph C. Hnndrtx will not. so It was an
nounced yesterday, make an address. r
A sharp factional warfare lias lust broken
out in the Democratic ranks in tho Klatbush
district, and It threatens to extend to other di
rections. Sheriff Creamer, who bosses tho
district, has become Involved In a dispute with
Henry Hesterberg, the most popular Demo
crat In Flatbush. The friends of Mr. Hester
berg are indignant over the shabby treatment
ho has received from Wllloughby street, and
while not openly In rovolt they projiose to let
tbe Creamer contingent run the campaign
in their own way. Mr Hesterberg said:
"I am going to take a rest this fall. I have
always deemed it best to listen to the voice of
the people and not to dictate to them."
Such a declaration ns this is sure to receive
a sharp rebuke from the Wllloughby street
FflV WYCK'S OFFICIAL ATTENDANT.
Supreme Court Officer Patrick Nolan Ha
Nothing Klae to Dd at Present.
Patrick Nolan is one of the regular officers
attached to tho Supremo Court In Brooklyn, and
the county of Kings pays him 1 1.200 a year for
his services. He was formerly tho Democratic
leader in the Twenty-third ward, and undoubt
edly owes his appointment to his pleasant offi
cial berth to hi political activity. Several years
ago Justico Augustus Van Wyck, who is also
a Twenty-third warder, selected Nolan as his
personal court attendant. Now. since Justico
Tan Wyck retirod from the bonch to accept
the Gubernatorial nomination, all business in
Part III. of tho Supreme Court has beon sus
pended, but all the same Officer Nolan con
tinues his personal attendance on his former
chief. Ho comes down to the Court House
each morning, receives any letters addressed
to Candidate Van Wyck, hurries with them to
the Hancock street house and remains there
while the retired Justico Is at homo, acting ns
his body guard.
Mr. Nolan's acquaintance with the Demo
cratic statesmen makes him just at this tlmo
an important adjunct to candidate Van
Wyck's home headquarters. Probably when
(lev. Black appoints a successor to Justice
Van Wyck and business In Part 3 is resumed,
Mr. Nolan may tender his resignation In order
to not as Candidate Van Wyck s mascot duriug
the remalnderof the campaign.

A committee of the Citizens' State party,
made up of Paul Fuller. John Jay Chapman, and
Alfred M. Klein, descended upon Col. Itoose
velt at the Fifth Avenue Hotel yesterday
morning and wanted him to sign a nice little
typewritten document making him decline a
nomination of the Independents, "filed or to be
filed." The Cits didn't give any wsrnlng of
their approach, and it was with utter amnze
ment that the regulars around Bepublican
headquarters witnessed their entry into the
camp of ths enemy. When they got at Col.
Itoosevelt each member of the committee shook
his hand very gravely, and then they made
known the object of the visit. They told the
Bepublican nominee that they wanted him to
decline their nomination at once, and then
they produced the little paper that they had so
obligingly drawn up. Col. Roosevelt, with
out looking at the paper, politely refused to de
cline a nomination which had not yet been
Very muoh crestfallen, the committee went
back to Its headquarters to talk the situation
ovor. At 4 o'clock in the afternoon they ap
peared at Republican headquarters and sent
In their cards to Col. Itoosevelt. When he
came out the four retired to a corner of the
room and had a long conversation. Finally
Col. Roosevelt and Mr. Fuller retired to Chair
man Odell's room, where they spent fully an
hour. Messrs. Chapman and Klein waited
When asked what object the independents
had in requesting a declination from Ool.
Roosevelt before they had legally nominated
him. Mr. Klein said:
"Why should we delay? We're anxious to
get into this campaign as soon as possible, and
we .limply want to get Col. Roosevelt's declina
tion at once, bo aa to be able to go ahead with
"Is It true that you would like Col. Roose
velt to accept your nomination?" naked a by
stander in what was presumably a spirit of
NO, ?lr," said Mr. Chapman, most emphati
cally. "We do not want him to accept. We
do not want him on our ticket."
"But supposing he sticks?"
Mr. Chapman looked nt Mr. Klein, and Mr.
Klein looked at Mr. Chapman, and It was easy
to read in their faces how delighted they would
be at such a condition of affairs. They Bald
nothing, however, and a moment later Col.
Itoosevelt came out with Mr. Fuller, there was
another discussion In the comer, and then the
representatives of ;tbn Citizens' State party
shook hands with the Bepublican candidate
and went away. After they had gone Col.
Boosim elt said to a reporter of Tub 8uk :
"Those gentlemen wanted me to sign a
paper declaring my Intention of declining their
nomination. I told them that such a document
was not worth the paper it was written on. I
wrote them long ago that I meant to decline
their nomination, hence I could see no use in
signing such a paper at this time. They
know what my Intentions are In this matter,
and I assured them that I hud no idea of
changing them now. It will be time enough
for me to decline the nomination of the Citi
zens' Btate. party when its petitions are filed
and I am legally the candidate of .hat party.
That, I understand, will bo to-morrow. I
might say that I shall act la this matter as
my counsel. Mr. Root, directs. That Is all I
have to say."
Mr. Fuller, speaking for the committee, said:
"Col. Roosevelt will decline our nomination
as soon as the petitions nominating him are
filed with the Heurctary of State, and he has
received notice to that effect. He doesn't
went to be premature."
Mr. Fuller and Preble Tucker will go to Al
bany to-day to file the petitions iu the office of
the Secretary of State. In the matter of de
clining the nomination, a member of the Be
publican State Committee said yesterday.
Col. Roosevelt will net entirely on the advice of
his counsel. This man udded. rather signifi
cantly, that unless there were legul complica
tions. Col. Roosevelt would undoubtedly de
cline at once.
It was stated on authority that cannot be
questioned yesterday that tho Republican or
ganization has evidence in its possession that
the Citizens' State party went on using Col.
Roosevelt's name In getting up their petitions
after they knew that no would not run on the
independent ticket. This evidence Is in the
shape of a bushellbasket full of letters from all
parts ol the State sent In by men who say they
signed the petitions of the Citizens' State par
ty within the past week or tea days on tho rep
resentation that Col. Roosevelt was to be the
candidate. Secretary F'ax of the Republican
State Committee said on this point yesterday:
"The Citizens' State party, having gDt their
signatures by false pretences, are now en
deavoring to profit at the expense of the man
whose name they used."
Chairman Odcll was asked yesterday wheth
er legal proceedings would be taken to show
that the Independents hod no right to nomi
nate any candidate for Governor hut Col.
Roosevelt on ths petitions to be filed to-morrow.
"That Is a subject I must decline to talk

" The Kings County Bepublican General Com

loyally and enthusiastically upon the labors of
ths campaign, presents ths following pream
ble and resolutions for adoption:
" Whtrrat, Ths Republican party, over trus
to Its principle for the maintenance of sound
government, having met In Saratoga In State
convention and adopted a strong platform of
principles and nominated tha choice of th
people as candidates for State office,
Snolred. That we heartily indorse the plat
form adopted at Saratoga and commend It for
the cogency, clearness and forcefulness of Its
utterance on nil the living political issues of
the hour, and as being In strong contrast with
the weak, evasive and cowardly platform
adopted by thn Democratic) party at Syracuse;
and, be it further
" tnoh-etf. That tho nomination of Col.
Theodore Roosovelt as candidate for Governor
and Timothy L. Woodruff as candidate for
Lloutonant-Govnmor. nnd their associate can
didates onthe State ticket, convincingly shows
that tho Rcpublloan party has gladly obeyed
the demands of the people of tho State.

for Congress, the bench, the Senate, and As
sembly: and wo pledge them and the whole
Republican tloket our active, honest, and
en rncst, support."
Chairman Waiter B. Atterhurr congratulated
his associates on the comploto harmony whioh
now characterizes the organization.
"We all." he said, "realize It to be a fact that
ths Republican party In Kings county wss
nevermore solid and united than It is to-day.
Gentlemen who differed sharply with us last
fall have come forward and tendered their
services In securing the election of our candi
dates this year. Tho loaders In the Low move
ment are working hand In hand with us in
this campaign. I do not know and have
not heard of a single Republican who
voted for Seth Iow who Is not go
ing to vote for Col. Theodore Roosevelt.
Thn Republicans have made many discoveries
during the last year. I can asHure you In all
sincerity that the prospect of Republican suc
cess just now Is every bit as bright as it was
two years ago. when tho McKlnley campaign
was under full headway. Applause, Bright
as tho prospects are, there Is plenty of work to
be done. The election district associations will
be called together Immediately for campaign
work. We should never lose sight of the fact
that the real effective work must be done by
thn rank and file of these organizations."
The Court street headquarters was thronged
all day with ths campaign managers. Col.
Michael J. Dady. the Chairman, announced
that nearly all the plans for the canvass had
been completed and that there was not a single
discouraging feature all along the line.
"I have had a talk," he said, "with Gov.
Black over the telephone. He spoke of the un
doubted success of tho Republican ticket and
promised to come to Brooklyn to help the
cause along. With the party solidly united as
it Is. and with all the Low men and Indepen
dents back In the Republican ranks, there
seems to be no doubt whatever that Roosevelt
will carry Kings county by a fine majority."
Tho Auxiliary Committee, headed by Col.
Willis L. Ogden, who wan the chief Low man
ager In Brooklyn lost year, sent out yesterday
a btg Roosevelt and Woodruff banner to each
ward association, and most of tnem will be un
furled with appropriate ceremonies before ths
close of the week.
Quarantine Commissioner Schroeder, who
hss a large acquaintance with the German
voters, was an early caller at headquarters yes
terday. He said:
"I find the Germans throughout the olty
very largely In favor of the election of Col.
Roosevelt. They admire a brave man and they
appreciate tho gallantry of the Colonel of the
rough riders. They will not be won over to
Democracy despite all the fairy stories put out
In Democratic papers for campaign effect."
Congressman Dennis M. Hurley of the Sec
ond district said: "Already I have made a
pretty thorough tour of my district. I know
the ieople thoroughly, for I have been through
a dozen or moro campaigns with them. I have
found many Democrats who are going to vote
for Roosevelt, and If the Colonel doeB not carry

It leaked out yesterday that Mr. Fitzgerald.
the young lawyer who was unexpectedly
selected by the Democrats to make the fight

the convention met. that former Congressman
John Clancy should have another chance to
run against Congressman Hurley, but a hur

Republican Orators Bate an Kaaler Row to

Tho Hon. Benjamin B. Odell. Jr.. Chairman
of the Republican State Commltteo, and the
Hon. William Barnes, Jr., Chairman of the
Stato Executive Committee, devoted last even
ing to making up the route for Col. Roose
velt's speech-making tour through tho State.
Odell and Barnes are juniors, and yet
they are considered to be mighty astute
politicians. Mr. Odell's father, a fine
old gentleman, is Mayor of Newburg,
and Mr. Barnes's father, another fine old gen
tleman, is still one of the Republican bulwarks
ot Albany county. Tho Itinerary for Col.
Roosevelt will bo completed cither to-day or
to-morrow. From all appearances both the
Republicans and the Democrats ure to make a
great burst of speed from an oratorical stand
point in tho last two weeks of the campaign.
The Republican bureau is very much better
equipped as far as speakers are concerned
than the Democrat io bureau In the Hoffman
The Republican speakers are provided with
consistent national doctrines and are not
afraid of confronting State issues. The Demo
cratic campaign speakers, on the other hand,
ure to be sot adrift all over the State handi
capped by the idiotic procedure of the Syracusa
State Convention, which Ignored the national
plutform of 1 Mini. In no State campaign here
tofore in the last thirty-five years have the
Democrats Ignored and refused to mention tho
national platform of the party.
The Republican campaigners were prepared
to say last night that all of the fighting element
of the party and all of the Democratic allies of
the younger generation, which admired and
extolled James G. Blaine as a stalwart and
lighting Republican, are arrayed with tho Re
publican campaigners In support of Col.
Itoosevelt. This is merely mentioned as a
feature of the campaign, for tbe reason
that Tammany Hall bus been claiming nil the
young Democratic vote for Vun Wyck. The
Republican campaign managers have received
nows to the coutrary. The effort to array the
Germans and the Hebrews also ugulust Itoose
velt has, It was declared, proved futile, for the
reason thnt Theodore Roosevelt is regarded as
a broad and liberal-minded citizen, and Demo
cratic campaign reports to the contrary are
already known to bo without the shadow ot
The Democratic campaigners have said all
along that Col. Roosevelt would be a mighty
gooacandidatu for tho Republicans for the first
two weeks, and after that Van Wyck. the
Democratic candidate, would grow in tho
estimation of the voters. In polities It is rather a
loiibttul compliment to speak of u candidate
as "a growing candidate. It belittles him
from the start. The Republican campaigners
said that Col. Roosovelt was Increas
ing in speod evory day as a candidate: that
the voters all over thn State recognized that
Augustus Van Wyck was one of the stoutest
sup porters of Bryan and Bryanlam in lstim.
and that he Is Tammany Hall's oandidatu for
Governor. The effort to befog tho voters ot
lb.-State us to the real sentiments of the De
mocracy by ignoring the Chicago platform of
lMs: will not prove successful, according to
Republican campaign manugers.
The Democratic National Convention Is two
years off. The control of tho Democratic party

cratic National Committee, made up of fifty
members. Thirty-seven of these fifty are

platform of lsusi. they will be compelled to

Bixby said yesterday:
" All good Democrats ure absolved from alle

of tho Democratic party. Tho I'nited De
