President Roosevelt, Former Presi

Gibbons Among Visitors.

Iowa and Gov. Odell of New
York Are There.
St. Louis, April 29.This morning the
residents of St. Louis In general, and the
managers of the world's fair in particular,
were given their first experience of the
conditions that will confront them during
the remainder of the week. Passenger
trains by the score rolled in a,ll the mor
ning, and militiamen and regulars, gov
ernors, and governor's staffs, poured thru
the gates in what seemed a never-ending
stream. The visitors who wore no gold
]ace and came merely to see, arrived by
the tens of thousands. It was the first
of the coming rush and it came like a
tidal wave.
Everybody was cared for promptly. All
the distinguished guests were met "by
escorts and conducted to Quarters previ
ously set apart for their comfort and en
tertainment. Those of the multitude who
had made no previous arrangement for
rooms were compelled to hunt for what
they wanted, as the hotels were crowded
to their utmost capacity and late arrivals
had to take to the boarding houses. Bu
reaus of information, however, provided
rjuarteus as fast as possible for all who ap
plied to them.
President Is Busy.
President Roosevelt's train is due at
4:10 this afternoon and between that hour
and 9 o'clock he is scheduled to eat one
dinner and deliver three addresses. He is
on the program to speak first at the
Good Roads convention -within twenty
minutes after his arrival. At 5 o'clock
he will be at St. Louis university for his
second speech, and at 6 o'clock he will be
driven to the home of President David
R. Francis for dinner. At 9 o'clock he
will address the Franz Slgel Monument
association at Music hall, Thirteenth and
, Olive streets

| Governor Van Sant of Minnesota, Gov
1 ernor Cummins of Iowa and _ Governor

' ticular was attended by a staff suffi
ciently numerous to make up a squadron
of cavalry in itself. Cardinal Gibbons, who

tion ceremonies to-morrow, arrived, late
last night and was driven to the residence
of Archbishop Kain, whose guest he will
be for the remainder of the week.

London, April 29.The Times strongly
appeals to the government and British
manufacturers to waken to the importance
of the opportunity opened to them byihe
St. Louis exposition. It dwells upon the
defective knowledge among the masses of
the people, both in Great Britain and the
United States, regarding each other's posi
tion, strength and habits,, and contends
that that knowledge is particularly small
in the western states. It says:
"The inhabitants of the western states
positively misconceive and. misunderstand
our habits of thought and methods, .and.
the character of our government and na
tion. At St. Louis we shall have an op
portunity for dispelling much of this in

The Situation Appears to Be Clear

Needs Watching.
Meanwhile, Both the Czar and the
Mikado Continue to Pre- ' . *"
pare for War.
"Washington, April 29.The state de
partment has. received a dispatch from
Ambassador McCormlck at St. Peters
burg to the effect that the published re
ports of the proposed convention, between
Russia and China relating: to Manchuria
are absolutely incorrect and that there
is no foundation for the report that Rus
sia demands that China shall refuse the
requests of other powers for treaty ports
and consulates In Manchuria. He has
been assured that the Russian government
has no intention to exclude other coun
tries from advantages now enjoyed in
Manchuria, or to confer exclusive priv
ileges upon Russia that the United
States may be sure that nothing will be
done to close doors now open and that
American commerce and American capi
tal are those which Russia most desires
to attract.
It is understood, also, that similar as
surances were received by the secretary
of state from his excellency, the Russian
ambassador, yesterday afternoon.
Sir Michael Herbert, the British am
bassador, called on Secretary Hay this
morning and was- acquainted with the
nature of the report made by Mr. Mc
Cormlck and It Is presumed that he had
similar advices from his own government.
Baron von Sternberg, the German min
ister, in company with Baron Scheller, the
new second secretary of the German em
bassy, also called at the state department
and he likewise was advised of the latest
developments. These advices have done
much to remove th'e feeling of anxiety
and apprehension aroused In Washington
by the first reports from Peking. The
officials are glad to take the Russian dis
claimer just as it comes, without stopping
to raise any point as to whether there has
not really been a complete change in the
Russian demands rather than an error in
the original statement.
There is no disposition to be hypercriti
cal, but the fact that nothing is said about
Ruaian evacuation acordlng to the
original treaty, will, of course, justify our
government in keeping a close watch on
North China and Mongolia, as well as
Manchuria. ........
Both Russia and Japan Are Getting Ready
for War.
Victoria, B. C. April 29.The Russian
demand regarding Manchuria did pot come
as'a surprise to Japan.
'-...According to =ad,-viees. received -l*ere - to
day by steamer pansa, Japan.
preparing for th crisis'and dispatches to
Japanese papers from various sections" in
dicate that Russia has also been making
preparation. Officers of that steamer say
that for Months large importations of rice
have been, made by Japan and all export
is forbidden. From Niu-chuang it Is re
ported that 3.000,000 taels have been for
warded to Port Arthur to buy provisions,
and from Nagasaki comes the news that
Russian agents have bought up 1,00 tons
of Cardiff coal there and at Che-foo, ali
:on. hand. Large purchases of foodstuffs
are also reported.
As for the evacuation of Manchuria, dis
patches to Japanese papers say it-is ap
parent that Russia had no Intention of
evacuating, altho one dispatch says that
the garrison of Moukden was entrained
for Port Arthur, when a sudden telegram
from Port Arthur forbade ' the de
parture and the garrison marched back
to its barracks.
A Peking dispatch of ApriMl says the
Russian troops In Manchuria gave some
sign of moving when, the plans were
changed. Those stationed at Niu-chuang
were moved a mile further from the town
and seem to be settling down. In the new
location and making ready for hostilities.'
Russia Increases Fleet.
Moreover, says a dispatch from Peking
to the jijl, there are telegrams coming
to Peking from the points along the coast,
reporting the most suspicious action on
the part of Russian warships. The big
battleships coming to reinforce the Rus-.
sian squadron in eastern waters, consist
ing of the 12 700-ton battleship Retvizan,
the cruisers Palada and Diana and Ave
torpedo boat destroyers,' passed Hong
kong on April 13 for Port Arthur.
Another Peking dispatch to the Asah'i
says that larg-e numbers -of soldiers are"
being moved Into Manchuria, garbed in
civilian clothes. Other dispatches tell of
the cutting of the telegraph lines In Man
churia and the Interference with the. cable
between Niu-chuang Che-foo by Russians,
Our Fleet at Yokohama.
London, April ^S.-^In a dispatch from
Toklo the correspondent of the Dally Mail
says the Russian charge d'affaires at Pe
king told a Japanese'journalist that th'e
Japanese, English and Americans came to
Manchuria with a political object, and that
Russia's attempt, to exclude them was an
act of self-defense. The Russian charge
d'affaires failed,to 'understand why Japan
was not. satisfied with her acquisitions in
American war vessels are assembling at
Yokohama, continues the correspondent,
supposedly in connection with the Man-
chUrian situation.
The .Japanese and British ministers at
Peking have formally warned ' China
against the acceptance of the Russian de
mands. '. - -
The Japanese hold proofs that Admiral
Alexieff Is using Chinese-highwaymen at
Moukden i to create disorder. In conclu
sion the representative of the Daily Hail
says the Russian .authorities-are buying
large Quantities at Tokio. - ^ .' ^.
British on the Wayv~ " ?^T
Honolulu, April 28 The British war
ship Amphion and the torpedo boats Spar
rowhawk and Virago have arrived here
from Victoria. The vessels will be con
veyed to Hongkong by the Amphitrlte,
which also is. in the harbor. On the ar
rival of these vessels in Asiatic waters, the
already powerful fleet which Great Britain
maintains In the orient wilt" be greatly
strengthened. It is learned from the Brit
ish naval officers and sailors that Great
Britain contemplates making immense ad
ditions to her Asiatic squadron and im
proving the Asiatic station in many ways.

Hew York Sun Special Service.
Chicago, April 29.William E. Curtis,
in a Washington special to the Record
Herald this morning, says:
Unofficial information comes from Co
penhagen that another attempt will be
made this summer "to secure the ratifica
tion of the treaty for the sale of the
Islands of St. Thomas and" Santa Cruz to
the United States. This treaty, as you
may recollect, was ratified' by the folke
thing, "or house ' of commons of Denmark,
but was defeated by a tie vote in the
landsthing, or senate. The tie was ac
complished by brlrigring' into the- chamber
a man. 90 years of"age, who is In a state
of senile
y an had not
Its sessions for-
so far gone that he was utterly uncon-.
scious of the meaning of his own act or
pf the proceedings that'were going on
around him. Another aged member of the
landsthing who was also ill was brought,
in upon a litter, his strength being for-,
tided by stimulants,'and his vote also was
accepted. It is an open secret also that
the ,Princess Marie 'd'Orleans wife of
Prince Waldemar the sixth son of the
king, was actively engaged in lobbying
against the ratification Of the treaty, arid
exercised considerable Influence over sey
eral of the members, much to the-scandal
of thje royal house. ,-l
, The laridsfthlng, or house of lords, con
sists Qf slxty-sbc members, twelve of
Whom are appointed for'llfe by'the'ero^n
The remainder are elected In a manner
similar ^to pur senators for terms 'Of
years. They are the largest landholders
and taxpayers in the kingdom and repre
sent the aristocratic element of the pop
ulation. The vote of the lower house was'
decidedly In favor of ratification and rep
resented public sentiment, which is in fa
vor of disposing of the colonies in the
West Indies because they
enue, contribute nothing to the:
welfare of the kingdom and are a con^
stant drain upon trie treasury It costs the
government, of Denmark about $100,000. a
year to maintain them.
The folkething, or lower hotise . of par^
liament, before its adjournment last win
ter, appointed a coriimittee to make a per
sonal Investigation of the condition Of af
fairs in St. Thomas and Santa Cruz, to
ascertain the" sentiment of-the people con-
cernlng. their annexation
States, and to report whether, An their
opinion, any policy may be- contrived' by
which the expense ofmaintaining the col
onies - niay be reduced" and' they may be1
made, to contribute something-to. .the king
dom. The commission has ^visited"' 'St.
Thomas and Santa Cruz ajjd returned to
Copenhagen, strongly convaaced that the
best'tliVng to "be" done- is^|p ratify the
trekty arid obtain the $5,000,000 whlqh the
government of the United.States has of
fered to pay for the islands.. They are
now preparing their report, which they
believe will cause a change of several
votes in . the -landsthing and secure the
ratification Of the treaty and annexation.

tta'4 "no .^scjort, except some policemen
.In.plain,clothes, and no troops lined the
streets, in contrast with what was done at
the time .of Emperor William's visit to
the pope. People gathered on the streets
and looked on curiously, but they ab
stained from any demonstration. It was
also remarked that, contrary to the usual
etiquette, King Edward did not lunch at
the British embassay but had luncheon
at the Quirnal and after a brief stop at the
embassy,' drove to the Vatican. Thus tar
did King Edward give way to the Vatican
desires. The carriage in which the king
drove to the Vatican did not belong to
the Quirinal, as the carriage of the King
of Italy could hot-go within the precincts
of the apostolic palace.
" This- mbrhing King Edward reviewed
2,00j) Italian troops assembled on the
parade ground. It was an imposing spec-
tacleAnd splendid weather contributed to
the brilliancy of the scene.
Yesterday, accompanied by Generai Pe
dottl, representing King' Victor Emman
uel, and escorted by a brilliant array of
cavalry, he went to the Pantheon and de
posited wreaths of laurel and palm ou
the tombs of King Victor Emmanuel I.
and King Humbert.
His majesty then enjoyed a long drive
thru the city and returned to the Quir
inal for dinner. The crowds which gath
ered in the streets thru which King Ed
ward passed continuously" acclaimed the
visiting sovereign.
Later King Edward received the diplo

_The story that the empress is not going
to Rome with his majesty because she is
not willing .to calL on the pope on account
of her strong protestant beliefs, Is con
sidered, to. be of sufficient importance of
ficially \ to require an authoritative denial,
which cites the ' fact that the empress

Steady progress is being made by the
men who are trying to select twelve good
men and true to pass judgment upon Al
bert Alonzo Ames. By noon to-day two
more had been chosen and ten of the
sought-for twelve retired for dinner in
the custody of two deputy sheriffs.
This afternoon the work is going on
with every prospect of securing a com
plete jury before night. In that event the
trial will open up In real earnest to-mor
row morning.
The tactics of the defense in seeking"
for older men as jurors were- continued
to-day except in one case with success.
And even in that case tho the man who
was chosen was 24, the attorneys for
the deten.se set. out. to have him ex
cused but were predisposed jn his favor
by the answers he made to Questions and
his conduct while upon the stand. No
other rule than that of individual' fitness
is observable in the Course taken by the
Lawyers Work In Harmony. _
The ordinary routine was not disturbed
durlng the morning and the harmony with
which the legal forces of the state and of
the defense 'axe working is remarkable.
Seldom if ever has a jury been secured In
a case of great importance with so little
Vra^lfcsg. There has been thus far ab*
BoVutely no cross-are over the table.
THe" defense' gfves evidence of being
especially well satisfied with the juror* ^J
secured while the state does not seem ,
at all depressed. Mr. 'Boardman used his
first peremptory ohallenge this morning in
the case of Byron P. Jones. The state has -
only one peremptory while the defense &
has four remaining.
- i Jury Closely Guarded.
Any one who has an idea that the men
who.are to determine the fate of Former
Mayor A. A. Ames are going to be tarn- -
pered with may guess again. The say- ' }
ink, "Any. time you do you don't," up- Js
pears to be applicable, in the case of the - ^
Ames jury, to any person who tries to |
get within gunshot of the juryroom door* . ^
J$e who engages in a search for knowl- "~*
edge of this sort must not mind being -|
looked upon as a bad man, and must hav
no- fear of life behind the bars. He should %
also carry .a large accident policy and \
Should be prepared to receive a few Jolts i
such as might incidentally result from his ^J
being heaved from a courthouse window. '*
The watch dogs of the law are on the ""''
alert in more places than one about the *
courthouse these nights, and owing to the f
strict instructions given, they are not to i
be appeased by any ordinary bone of an .
excuse. The guardians of the jury are \f
suspicious of every intruder. -'*
Altho only-eight men had up to last j
night been chosen to act upon the jury *'
in the trial which is attracting such wide $
attention and interest, these eight lndl- J
viduals were cared for arid guarded as -^
tho they represented a million-dollar "l
treasure or were probable derby winners
on the night before a big race. Two bai- -"
Hffs'have been sworn in to stay with the^
selected'eight, and, not satisfied with this -\
guard against possible tamperers, the **&
night-watchman -about the'courthouse has , -
evidently been given emphatic instruc- '
tlons to prevent his transacting any busi- J
riess with Morpheus. "J
'Two young men had a practical dem- _
onstration of the vigilance of the author- *, i
ittes at the. courthouse last evening". They ~* &
were not known to the elevator man at "^r
the Sail elevator and were closely quizzed *%'
before they were taken to the third floor. .
After reaching.the floor requested, they ^
were not allowed to get out of sight of /
some eye of the law for a moment until -'
they had satisfied the owner of the eye '"V^,,?
of their business in the building. ^
Bad Weather Has Little Effect
* ' ' Crowd. " ?' "*"
- The third day's session of the A. A.
Ames trial- was opened promptly on time.
Interest in the case is, evidently upon the
increase as the time rapidly approaches
for the taking of evidence. The most un- -
favorable weather conditions failed to
keep away the crowd to-day.
The doctor's light seems to be largely
under the direction of Mrs. Ames who ap
pears on the scene early and stays late.
She takes a marked Interest in every
candidate for jury honors and ever and
anon whispers some words of suggestion
or advice to the counsel for the defend
ant. :
Or. Ames Cheerful.
Dr. Ames appears to take a very cheer
ful and philosophic view of the proceed
ings. He was on hand early this morn
ing and took his accustomed place at the
trial table behind his legal force. Appar
ently the doctor listens to all of the pro-^*
eeedings, but" neither from the expressions^
upon his face nor from his actions can it'^*
be said that he is in any way excited or
worried. He has very little to say and
very seldom joins in the conferences of
his attorneys and his wife."
Last night the defendant appeared to **?
be considerably -wearied^ -with the day's P
tedium,, andge
said In to inquiries: ""
."Yes I t prettreply y tired before night t \
comes, and many times during the day I. y '^
wish that I might have a little rest. If X $fi
could get out and walk around occasional- $
Iy-Jt -would not be so bad. but I can't do'*'
tliat and the monotony Is very wearing. *
This wet weather is bad for me and J
