PRICE TWO CENTS. 800SEYELT AND MINN. The President Refers to His Speech at State Fair. CONFESSION OF FAITH Thus He Characterizes It to North Star Congressmen. WILL SEEK WELFARE OF ALL Patriotic Answer to a Southern Rep resentative* Noble Offer of Support. TVom. Thf Journal Human, Jlwm To** £»U4lno, VFffhington. Washington, Sept. 21.—At 10 o'clock this morning Representatives McCleary, Heat ■wole and Stevens, accompanied by Eli S. Warner, surveyor general of Minnesota, paid their respects to President Roosevelt at the "White House. Their visit lasted ten minutes. The president expressed himself as glad to see them and thanked them for. their cordial pledges of support. "I now recall with great satisfaction," eald he, "my speech in Minnesota on La bor Day this year and am glad, in view of What has since happened, that I had that opportunity to make a confession of faith regarding my attitude towards the policy of President McKlnley. Since the sad events of the past two weeks I have had occasion more than once to recall that speech. Had I said nothing else, it would of itself have been a pledge of my inten tions in the new place which I have been called upon to fill." The president has the liveliest remem brances of his Minnesota visit and asked after a number of gentlemen whom he met there. Senator Hansbrough was one of the callers at the White House to-day. When lie entered the cabinet room. President Roosevelt left the group, including the representatives of the Cuban government, General Wood and several other repre sentatives and senators with whom he was chatting, and grasped the senator's hand with the remark in his hearty voice: "This is my representative. I was once a deputy sheriff In North Dakota, the first and only office I had there. I there fore regard myself as belonging in part to that state." Senator Hansbrough assured the presi dent of. the •warm-feeling that North Da kota has for him and promised a loyal support of his administration. DndKei the Sleuth*. v- The question of guarding President Roosevelt has already been discovered to be a difficult one. He insists on walking about the streets unaccompanied, and -without warning to anyone. He ducks out of the White House and goes chasing up one street and down another as if he were a committee clerk. He refuses to be guarded by secret service and gives them the slip on all possible occa sions. If Chief Wilkle would obey, orders there would be no detail of men to: guard him. But there is just one man in the United States who declines to take orders from the Commander-in-chief of the army and navy. McKlnley used to object to shadows which were always in his path, but Wilkle was incorrigible. So now it has developed into a race between the president, who is right light on his feet, and the sleuths, who have grown rather logey in their former service. Yestefday Roosevelt gave the secret service men nervous prostration by disapeparing in the middle of the day. He had gone to the Cowles house to luncheon and walked alone both ways. They thought for half %n hour he had been kidnapped and were more worried than a little. To-day the game began again when Rosevelt started out and walked from the Cowles house to the executive mansion, arriving at 9 9'clock. Secret service men say they have >o show. The president's walking pace keeps them on the trot. They have begun Khat promises to be a strenuous exist »nce. —W. W. Jermane. By Associated Press. "Washington, Sept. 21. —President Roose velt walked early to the White House to flay from the residence of his brother-in law. Commander Cowles of the navy, ar riving Bhortly before 9:30. Secretaries Hay, Gage and Ixtng came almost upon his heels and saw the president in the cabinet room. The doors of the White House were closed to the public, but ad mission, of course, was accorded vto those •who desired to see the president personal ly, and within an hour a score of men, prominent in public life, had called to pay their respects and to extend their good wishes for a successful administra tion. Among them were Senators Scott «nd Elklns of West Virginia, Senator Pritchard of North Carolina, Millard of Nebraska and Burton of Kansas, and Rep resentatives Heatwole, McCleary and 6tevens of Minnesota, Gibson of Tennes see, Livingstone of Georgia and Dayton of West Virginia. All were delighted with the reception accorded them. Senators Elklns and Scott congratulated the presi dent upon the declaration he had made when he took the oath of office. "That simple declaration," said Senator Scott, "immediately restored confidence in the business world." Representative Livingstone of Georgia was especially pleased with his reception. The Georgia representative had congrat ulated the president, had expressed the Nevermore an Interviewee Cleveland, Sept. 21.—The Plaindealer says: "Asked to make a brief statement •8 to how he regarded the policy of President Roosevelt so far as it had been ex pressed and what sort of an administration he believed the new president would civ« to the nation, Senator Hanna said: "I am done with being interviewed for all time." "Have you decided not to again publicly express your 1 opinion?" was asked "No more," was the brief answer. The senator is broken by the tragedy at Buffalo and his face shows how deeply grief baa left Its mark. hope that his administration would be a success and had informed him that as a southern man and a Georgian he would contribute everything in his power to that end. o o : The president replied he would : t be the president of the whole : 1 people without regard to : t geographical lines or class, dis- : 2 Unction, that it was the welfare : : of all which he should seek to : : promote. : o*. ••••o "I Don't Care for Sections." The president was even more emphatic in his declaration to Senator Pritchard of North Carolina, Representative Klutz of Xorth Carolina and Representative Gibson of Tennessee. "The south will support you most heart ily," Senator Pritcharrt said, speaking for all three of the southern men. "The dem ocratic newspapers are predicting good for you and of you, and the feeling of all the people for you irrespective of party, is most kindly." "I am going to be president of the United States and not any section," said the president. "I don't care for sections or sectional lines. When 1 was governor of New York I was told I could make four appointments In the army. When I sent in the names, three were from the south and the other from New York. They were brave men who deserved recognition for services in the Spanish war, and it did not matter what states they were from." The president talked in the same strain with Senator Money t>f Mississippi when the latter called, reminding the Missis sippi senator that his mother was a southern woman. "I am half southern," said he, "and I have lived in the west, so I think I can represent the whole country." The Cuban Outlook. General Wood leaves for Havana to night, but expects that he will be obliged to return to Washington next month. He expects that the new electoral law will be simplified. General Wood said further that the government expected to t>e atie to turn over the administration of the affairs of the island to the Cubans by the first of next May. At 1:30 the president left the White house for luncheon. He had on a black cutaway coat and a black slouch hat and wore a band of crape around his left arm. He was accompanied by General Wood. The two walked briskly through the eastern driveway of the grounds and across Pennsylvania avenue to Lafayette Park, through which they passed to Com mander Cowles' residence.

New York, Sept. —Among the passen gers booked to sail ;on the steamship Kaiser -Wilhelm Der Grosse on Tuesday next ■is Captain Arthur Lee, ex-mllitary attache to the British embassy in Wash ington and conservative member of par liament from South Hampshire. As the representative of the English army Cap tain Lee campaigned in Cuba during the Spanish-American war. ■ During that campaign he spent a great deal of his time with. the Rough Riders and became inti mately acquainted with President Roose velt. He said: '"•■'■ As a student of the American people I count myself particularly fortunate, In having been In this country during the past week.

"I have talked with him on the sub ject," said Captain Lee, . "and I think I know his views, but of course I could not abuse his confidence by repeating anything he might have said. I. will state positive ly, however, that he never made any se cret of his appreciation of the helpful at titude of England towards the United States during the struggle in Cuba, and that he has not forgotten it. England has nothing to fear from his administration, end I think the leaders of my government are convinced of that fact." « BESIEGING ROOSEVELT \ Will Place-Hunters Succeed in CroHhing Him? Washington, Sept. 21. —From now on there will be a stream of favor-seekers at the White House. Notwithstanding the announcement that the McKinley policy will bo continued, it is expected there will be more or less change in the personnel of the governmental staffs, and the pres sure on President Roosevelt to provide for friends who have been on the waiting list will become great. Everybody wants to see the president and establish cordial relations with him. Politicians in every state are planning how to convince him that they were "Roosevelt-ln-1904" men from the start and therefore entitled to consideration in the new deal. Happy are they who made connection with the Rose velt forces during the vice president's re cent trips in the west, for they are com forting themselves with the thought that their claims were filed -while yet he was in the background.

Leadville, Col., Sept. 21.—An Italian miner at the Elk mine remarked that all kings and presidents should be killed and it was the right thing to kill McKinley. Three hundred miners gathered at the shaft house and when the fellow appeared, placed a rope around his neck and started for a railroad trestle. I On the advice of some of the crowd the man's .life was spared, but he was badly choked and driven out of the camp by the miners with drawn revolvers. SATURDAY EVENING, SEPTEMBER 21, 1901. CAPT. BARBER 'STANDS PAT' Repeats Former Statements as to Coaling at Sea, A TIFF WITH RAYNER Captain Bandies Words With Coun- sel for Schley. COALING UNDER DIFFICULTIES Admiral Hla-glnaon I* Recalled and Modifies a Friday State ment. Washington, Sept. 21.—At the forenoon sitting of the Schley court of inquiry to day no new witnesses were upon the stand v^ — tijT- S TO^ r-^ Jf s~^ <- ' S^ ONE WAY OF BANISHING THE BOERS. " Kitchener—l'll get these fellows out of the country if they have to follow me out. Captain Harber continued Ms testimony and most of the time was devoted to his cross-examination by Mr. Rayner. He adhered to his statement made yesterday concerning coaling at sea, and objected when Mr. Rayner sought to refresh his memory by quoting the log-book of the Massachusetts. Admiral Higginson waa recalled and modified his statement of yesterday con cerning the distance which, the fleet before Santiago stood out to sea. He said that during the first portion of the time it was about five miles during the day and about four mites at night. Admiral Dewey observed his usual rule of promptness in calling the court to or der. The attendance was somewhat larg er than yesterday. The first witness called was Captain Harber, executive officer of the Texas, who was on the stand when court ad journed yesterday. Mr. Rayner, of coun sel for Admiral Schley questioned him concerning his statement that he did not recall that any picket line was established inside the line of blockade at Clenfuegos. A report by Admiral Schley was read that a picket line had been maintained, but the witness declined to change his state ment. Memory at Fault. Asked if the Brooklyn had not, on May 24, signalled the Texas to go alongside the collier 1 and coal, he said he did not re call anything of the kind. Mr. Rayner read the signal message as follows: "Go alongside the collier and coal as rapidly as possible," but no amount of pressing could bring the witness to say that he re membered the incident. He had, he said, had very little to do with the signalling. The same replies practically were made in response to questions regarding other sig nals. Mr. Rayner quoted several of these. One transmitted from the Texas to the Brooklyn read: "On afterthought the cap tain thinks It unsafe to put a collier be tween battleships." Another from the Texas read: "Do not think it safe to col lier. The two ships will surely crush her." Captain Harber replied that he remem bered there was some talk of the collier, but he could not recall what it was. Speaking of the signals observed off Cienfugos, he said his supposition, like that of the other officers, waß that they were between the Spanish forces. Captain Harber was also questioned closely concerning the rate of speed of the. fleet on the sail from Cienfuegos to Santiago on May 25. He said the weather was fresh and the sea moderate; that it was hard for small vessels, but that It was "nothing much." He thought the Texas could have made from ten, to twelve knots. Mr. Rayner had the witness reading logs of the Massachusetts, the lowa, the Brooklyn and other vessels concerning the weather at that time. Mr. Rayner read a report from Captain Higginson saying that the weather had been "rough and squally" on the 25th. Captain Harber stated that the report of Captain Higgiu- Continued on Second Pave. 10 WATER'S EDGE Steam Barge Fedora Practi cally a Total Loss at Red Cliff. Special to The Journal. Bayfleld, Wis., Sept. 21.—The steam barge Fedora, owned by W. W. Brown, of Clevland, was burned to the water's edge at Red Cliff last night, a lamp ex ploded in the engine room and before the pumps could be started the fire had gained such headway that the engineer was eom j pelled to leave the room.

Ragan, of the lost schooner Jupi er, was not rescued from a raft on Lake Huron by a Canadian tug, as reported last night. Captain Ragan's son has received the following telegram from Southamton, Ont.: "Raft seoji to-day by fish tug in good order with life lines atached abreast Lyall island, light, ten miles from Southamp ton."

HE AND A BOY DROWN Double Tragedy Occurs at Eight- eenth Avenue Northeast. A TRULY HEROIC SACRIFICE The Drowning Boy Throttled His Would-Be Rescuer and Both Sank. Dennis Sewell, a boom hand, gave up his life shortly before noon to-day in an unsuccessful attempt to save Emil Irmen, 14 years old, who had fallen into the river while fishing. The accident occurred near the Eighteenth avenue N "gap," where Sewell and twenty other men were work ing. ' ■■; ;-". Sewell saw the lad tumble Into the water from the walk that leads from the east shore ;to . the boom, and plunged ; in after him." Being an excellent swimmer, he did not expect any difficulty in rescu ing the little fellow. The drowning boy, however, as soon as Sewell reached him, .grasped the strong man about the neck convulsively and clung with an iron grasp.,j which . his -* would-be rescuer was unable to break. With the lad's arms wrapped tightly around his neck, making it im possible for him to use his arms in swim ming and ;at the same time strangling him, the brave man went down to a hero's death.

ABANDONED IN ARCTIC WASTES Sensational Revelation in Connection WitK Peary's Latest Expedition in Quest of the Pole. Dr. Diedrick, Surgeon of the Party, Is Marooned and His Fate Is a Matter of Conjecture, haw York Sun Snectai Servian Boston, Sept. 21.—1f the statements of Engineer Staats are true, and the fact that he consents to the use of his name, warrants them as such, Lieutenant Peary and Dr. Diedrick, thes urgeon and phy sician chosen to administer to the wants df the explorer and his men, did not live moat amicably, even from the time the Windward reached Sydney, Cape Breton, on the way north. Constant quarreling between the chief of the expedition and Dr. Diedrick resulted in many threats being made by Peary and the latter. Most of these threats, however, resulted in mere talk, but finally in the abandon ing of the doctor at Etah, Greenland, in latitude 79 degrees and 10 minutes, north. He was put ashore by Commander Herbert L. Brldgman from the Erik at 2 o'clock in the morning of Aug. 17, last. Dr. Diedrlck was without any food whatso ever and the only means he had of pro tecting himself from the assaults of the polar bears and other wild animals of the north, were a few guns and a little am munition. His Fate Enigmatical. What his fate will be is hard to imagine. His only means of procuring eatables will be by shooting walruses and seal. Ac cording to Mr. Staats, little sorrow was expressed by Lieutenant Peary and the seven members of the expedition aboard the Erik. Etah is but a place in name only. It is as barren and cold as the rest of the surrounding ice fields;- save for the inhabiting of the spot by a group of Eskimos, not more than fifty in number,, and these live in small huts built of ice and snow. To be sure, one of the Peary storehouses is situated there, but nothing but hard biscuits are kept there. These, with the meat he might get from the kill ing of walrus, or the slaying of a degr, are the only encouraging prospects held out for the exiled man, according to a re turned traveler. Wot a Dispute Over Gold. , It has been intimated in a private dis patch from Sydney that the real cause of the quarrel between Peary and his sub ordinate was due to a dispute In regard to the reported discovery of gold and dia monds in the far north. Said Engineer Staats: This is absurd. In the first place there is ell and the boy sunk for the last time and were seen no more. The entire crew, under the orders of the foreman, Mose Green, quit work and man ning a scow they commenced the search for the bodies, using their pick poles. A few minutes later another crew from down-river rowed to the scene of the drowning and joined In the search, while an officer telephoned the police. The North Side patrol wagon with grappling Irons arrived a few minutes later and the police, assisted by the boom employes dragged the stream for the bodies. Sevrell Leaves a Family. "Denny" Sewell's fate is indeed sad. His bravery and quick action in going after the boy are highly praised by those who saw him. His home is at 325 Twen ty-fourth avenue N, and he leaves a wife and four small children. He had been, an employe of the boom company for sev eral years. The place where Emll Irmen and Sewell were drowned has long been known as a dangerous '"hole" where a large number of boys in Northeast Minneapolis bathe every summer. No less than a dozen per sons have been drowned there in as many years. TAXES DROPPED Canadian Pacific Road Returned of 959,422 at Winnipeg. Special to The Journal. Winnipeg, Man.. Sept. 21.—The city tax collector to-day wrote off his books the sum of $59,422 charged against the Ca nadian Pacific road for taxes. A decision was recently given by the 'imperial privy council that the road Is not liable to civic taxation. Boer Appeal for Arbitration The Hague, Sept. 21.—Baron Van Lynden, the minister of foreign affairs, hu forwarded to the legations and members of the council of the court of arbitration a copy of the Boer appeal for arbitration with a notification that he intends to bring up the appeal for consideration at the first meeting of the council. The date of til* meeting is not fixed. Less Hopeful for Mrs. MeKinley Canton, Ohio, Sept. 21.—Mrs. MeKinley went for a short drive this afternoon ac companied by Dr. Rixey and Mrs. Barber. On their return Dr. Rixey said: ,-j I do not feel so confident as earlier. this week. Mrs. ' McKlnley's grief 'is crushing; her, though ■ she is bearing up bravely and doing as well as could be expected ;. under the cir cumstances. However, too much encourage ao«nt ehoul* aot b« tak»o »t this t»riy day, , no foundation for the truth of such a state ment when one considers that It would be nearly improbable to dig deep enough through the ice to strike ground. I have had a varied experience through the world ahd have vis ited nearly every quarter of the globe. la that time I have had mich experience In raining for gold and silver, but never heard of riches being found in the ice. To prove that the foundation for a report of a quar rel between Peary and Dr. Diedrick on these grounds is absurd, I will say that few sane people behove that there is any land be r.eath the ice of the arctic regions. What the cause of the friction was, Engineer Staats says he does not know, D head to follow here WILL REACH THE POLE Prediction of Conductor of Relief Expedition. New York, Sept. 21.—Herbert I. Bridg man, secretary of the Peary Arctic club, who conducted the Peary relief expedi tion of this year, and the young men who accompanied him have returned home. With them came Mrs. Peary and her lit tle girl, who was born in the Arctic reg ions eight years ago. Said Mr. Brldg* man: Next April Peary will start for the pole from Cape Hecla, the highest point of land he has discovered in the west, which is only 600 miles from the pole. If he should never reach it, his discoveries have been important enough to warrant the time he has spent ia the north, but he will reach the pole. Mr. Bridgman said he had the satis faction of knowing that Peary had a sup ply of walrus meat large enough to carry him through his undertaking. The ex plorer returned with the Bridgman party as far as Cape Henschel where his winter headquarters are. Four days after it ocourred, Mr. Bridg man, at Sydney, heard of the shooting of President McKinley. Peary will not hear of it until next summer. Mr. Bride-* man said: The last relief expedition was the eleventh sent out by the Arctic Club. They have loci all elements of the dramatic. We were ia danger, however, twice. Once we got caught between a glacier and an ice-floe and went aground on a muddy bank. We were fast for several hours, and the danger was lest the ice pack should sweep in around ue and make us prisoners. The captain pounded a hole in the nose of the floe, fastened a big hawser to the floe, and in ten minutes the great body of ice, whoee movement you could not ace at all, had swung us clear of the whole thing. The most serious time was when we got caught between the lip of ice, under water, and the glacier. We got away all right, how ever. Mr. Bridgman said that, so far as ha knew, there was no truth in the report from Halifax, N. S., that Peary had dis covered gold in the Arctic regions. M CKINLEY MONUMENT All the People to Have an OpportiM nity to Contribute. Chicago, Sept. 21.—The committee re cently appointed to determine the advis ability of inaugurating a movement fo*> the collection of funds to erect a memo rial In Washington in honor of President MeKinley met at the Union League club to-day and decided to hold the matter in abeyance for the present. This action was due to a statement of the chairman of the committee, Alexander H. Revell. who had conferred with a number of th« close friends of the late president, In cluding Judge Day, Senator Hanna, Ab ner MeKinley, Myron T. Herrick and Controller Dawes. These gentlemen, Mr. Revell said, intended' to take steps na tional in scope, for the erection of ft monument at Canton, Ohio. As soon a* their plans are formulated, the people of the Unite* States generally will have an opportunity to contribute to the proposed memorial. It was the judgment of the committee that no steps should be taken which might in any way conflict wiUi the plans. PHILLIPS TRIES AGAIN President of a. Grain Company Or* sranized To-day. Chicago, Sept. 21.—The George H. Phil lips company, with $500,000 capital, 20 per cent paid up, was formed here to-day, with the former corn king as president. The plan to form a company of th» creditors of the old company was recently abandoned. Mr. Phillips owns 25 per cent of the stock of the new company. H« will draw a salary as president and manager of the new concern and stated to-day that whatever dividends his stock paid him would be applied on the debts of the de funct company. When Mrs. MoKinley first looked out of her window to-day she saw the guards on patrol in front of her house. Directing a maid to call Dr. Rixey, she asked him to have the guards removed. "I do not need them," she said. "They; are unnecessary."
