The general repeatedly ' bowed his acknowledgements, and when the tumult had subsided, replied as fol lows: "To my thought it is most fitting that this proud and patriotic organization should again meet in this historic city which gave It birth. The meeting of such men as you welcome to-day whose past 'deeds will- remain forever an Inspiration to American valor and to future sacrifices for constitutional freedom is an auspi cious event in the country's hlstoryrwhen ever and wherever it may occur but how peculiarly Inspiring is this reunion in Louisiana on this 100th anniversary of her new birth into governmental alliance with American states. "A Roman eye would have discovered In a meeting of such men, at such time, an omen of good to the cause of liberty and American eyes should see in it noth ing but good to the whole republic.

"We have long- since drawn the curtain ott oblivion over the regretful and un seemly things of the past and we cherish aai Americans the valor and noble deeds Of both armies and of all sections.

W e are growing old but we still stand firmly on the narrow strip of land which separates us from a boundless ocean. "And as we go hence, we will calmly drop our mantles on the shoulders of our sons, who will worthily wear them arid In no crisis of the republic, whether in forum or field, will they be found want- ing." General Gordon then introduced Govern or W. W. Heard of Louisiana, who in be- . half of the state extended a formal wel come. While the veterans were assembling, the convention of the Sons of Veterans was called to order in the Crescent theater by J. D. Nix, commander of Camp Beauregard. After an invocation by Chaplain General Bishop Gailor of Ten nessee there were several addresses of welcome. Memorial services in honor of Jefferson Davis were held in Christ church. ""k TEXT BOOK FOR CHICAGO In It Dr. T. Allen Hoben Disputes the Doctrine of the Immacu late Conception. Special to The Journal, Milwaukee, May 19.Dr. T. Allen Hoben, of Waupun, Wis., is the author of a book which will create a sensation in church circles. The title of the book is "The Virgin Birth." In it he disputes the doctrine of the immaculate conception. Dr. Hoben says that Jesus of Nazareth came into the. world in a manner no different than "any other man born of woman."

Reno, Nev.. May ,VJ9.The presidential party arrived at tferio at 7:30 this morn ing and ten minutes? later was on the main line of the Virginia & Truckee road on the way to Carson. While the president's train stopped here he came out on the back platform of his car and pleasantly greeted the immense throng that had as sempled to give him a true Nevada wel come. The crowd cheered and was kept fn good humor by the president's talk. H e did not attempt to make a speech but talked first to one, then to another. When his train started he kept waving his hand and saying, - "Good-by, good-by." The president's train returned from Car son at 11:10. His party was soon seated in carriages and driven to the courthouse, where he made an address. After his speech he was driven about town, spent ten minutes in the Chamber of Commerce and was then driven to the state university, where he spoke to 400 students. He then started for the. west again. A pleasant incident of the president's visit to Reno occurred when H. J. Bar low .of Battle Mountain, one of the Roose velt Rough Riders, who smelled. smoke with the president in bis famous charge up San Juan hill, sent his card in to the president. "Show him in," was the president's command. On -Barlow's appearance the president greeted him cordially and asked him several questions. The president was presented with, a string of Truckee river trout, fresh from their mountain home, and a case of. Nevada honey when his train passed thru on its way to Carson. / -/- Coach'Breaks Record.

The members [of his party, who. passed Saturday afternoon and Sunday at Tosem ite, joined the president at the falls.

This unusual honor from a monarch, in whose dominions women, particularly "those of royal blood, are kept in the background, w as conferred as a result of kn interesting occurrence in which-Mrs. Goelet and her yacht figured. Mrs. Goelet,.in the course of her cruis ing, arrived at the entrance of the Dard anelles'and applied for permission to pass thru to Constantinople. But two 'little cannons on the yacht excited the. sus picions of the Turkish officials, and they decided not. to let the Nahma go thru until a thoro Investigation had been made. It took them forty-eight hours to decide that Mrs. Goelet did not Intend to bom bard Constantinople. Mrs. Goelet, who was much vexed over the delay, made a complaint to Minister Leishman. In some way the story came to the ears of the sultan. He gave im mediate orders that the Nahma be permit ted to come to Constantinople and sent a rebuke to the officials who had caused Mrs. Goelet annoyance. A s amends the sultan had the grand vizier apologize to Mrs. Goelet. This the grand vizier did in person and he^also in the name of the sovereign offered her every courtesy and to show the sincerity of the sultan's pro fessions of regret and his great regard for the American lady, conferred upon her, in the sultan's name, the cordon of,-_ the Chefakat. ', '- - - ?:, ' THIS IS EOW THEY DO IT Practice in Extradition Cases With Canada Is Set Forth in Memorandum. ' ' 8pecial to The Journal. Ottawa, May 19.H. G. Carroll, so licitor general, yesterday bro.ught down the papers in the pression upon the -people of that section1 with whom he was not popular. During both of his terms in the" presidency he alienated the politicians of the south for rejecting their advice and suggestions and had few friends in that section when he went out of office. His speech oh the negro question was especially gratifying, and has received favorable comment in every part of the so,uth. The negro prob lem Is working itself out in a practical way and such discussions as his address has aroused, and the agitation created by President Roosevelt's appointment of "a, negro to be collector of customs at Charleston, S. C , have been effective In bringing out the views of people whose knowledge, experience and Interest give them a right to be heard. Some of the southern newspapers, like many people of the south, are very radi cal in their views and violent in their expressions. Some of them, if you can* believe what they say, would like to see the negro exterminated from the face of the earth but the majority of the news papers and the great mass of thinking men look upon the problem, from ari eco nomical standpoint and regard the col ored population of the south as not only important, but necessary to the welfare and prosperity of that-section. When recently in the south, I asked several people the same question: "Why haven't the southern states progressed as rapidly -as the northern states?" and I got fEe same answer every tirne. Every one who has-given the sub ject thought agrees that the backward-: ness of that section is due to the lack-of competent labor slavery first and then worse than slavery afterwards. -As-long as the negro was a hewer of wood and a drawer of water not white man with self respect would perform the same labor. A white man could not follow the plow or swing a scythe* or an ax because those were the duties of slave's and afterward of freedmen, and his sense of dignity and pride would not permit him to~ place himself upon the level of the black Tace. Therefore the south w as entirely depen dent for labor upon its negro population, which every thinking . mail now agrees was-demoralizing before emancipation and even more so after. Therefore the prob lem of the south is industrial,: and the negro is the main factor in it. . The manufacturing, is all. done by the whites. Negroes cannot or will not work within walls, and, as a rule," cannot be trusted with machinery. Occasionally you find a good negro engineer and machinist, Taut they are very few, and, although they have been tried as factory - operatives again and again Tin different parts of the south they have invariably- failed,^and it is how asserted that there is not one negro operative in any of the "textile mills in the southern- states. Hence, the white people can engage in factory "employment without impairing their: dignity or sacrl iictng. their"pride and-ail the mills are operated with white labor. - sGayn6r-Gre.ene tion case which formed somewhat a cause celebre in the province of Quebec, last year. , - ': * The most interesting feature of the cor respondence is a memorandum for the minister of justice setting forth the prac^ tice in,extradition cases very clearly. li states !"Th$t Whilst the chief executive decides finally the question of delivery, or of non-delivery, the judicial authority makes preliminary investigation, as to the criminality" and identity of the prisoner ged.

If. the judicial-au thority dicides that the evidence is suffi cient the.prisoner Is committed to.await the action of the executive to whom the record of proceedings is transmitted for consideration. The executive may either order the fugitive's surrender,, or in. cer tain cases refuse to do so.

In Its answer the Pennsylvania alleges that the plaintiff is not regularly engaged in mining coal, but is a druggist During the strike last year it alleges the plain tiff and others purchased the right from farmers to dig coal and after hauling it to some siding of the company loaded it by hand from the wagons into the cars. At first, it is claimed, the railroad granted requests for cars, but realizing that if this plan became more general, in jury would follow not only to the railroad "but to the public, the railroad determined to refuse to furnish cars for such loading. It denies, however, that it furnished cars to competitors similarly situated. The case is the first to bring up the point of a railroad's right to stipulate just how material shall be loaded. The company has been requested to produce its books and papers, showing the distribution of cars among the various coal mining companies. PRICE OF OIL IS LOWER The Standard Oil Company Reduces Prices in the Face of De- . - ^creasing Production. , ] New York Sun Special Service, - ^ V New York, May 19.The Standard Oil company has cut the price of Pennsylvania crude oil 3 cents a barrel, bringing it to $1.50-and the price of Lima oil 2 cents a harrel to $1.14. The reduction came as a surprise to the trade as the situation is said to really warrant an advance instead of a decline, production having been steadily decreasing in spite of all the new field work that has been done. It was suggested to-day that the rea son, for the cuts in price was an effort of the Standard Oil company to force owners of" oil who are inclined to hold for higher prices to market their holdings.

The opinion is written by Judge Dal las. It states that the litigation is before the court on two appeals. One of them upon a writ of error relating to an order of the circuit court of western Pennsyl vania, dismissing a petition by which the Western Union Telegraph company sought to acquire by condemnation the us.e of the right of way of the Pennsylvania com pany and its branches for the use of the telegraph- company's lines. The other upon a decree of the circuit court of New Jersey awarding an injunction restrain ing the railroad company and others from interfering with the telegraph lines along the right of way of the Pennsylvania Rail road company. Judge Dallas says the de cree of the New Jersey court-was not made on the merits of jthe case, but upon the ground that it would result in irrepar able injury to no one and might soon be reviewed upon appeals, whereas an order refusing the injunction might have en tailed much loss to the telegraph company. The opinion quotes the contract of the Western Union company with the Penn sylvania railroad dated Sept. 20, 1881, which contained a provision that after a period of twenty years, Upon written no tige given by the railroad company, the telegraph company would be bound to re move its lines whenever requested. After quoting numerous authorities, the opinion says: "As it was not asserted that the tele graph company had the right independent ly of contract to maintain its lines upon the railroad and in view of the settled construction of the law, we cannot permit such a contention to be recognized as the basis of jurisdiction." The opinion concludes as follows: "Hav ing reached -the conclusion that the funda mental position of the telegraph company in each of these cases is untenable, the circuit court of western Pennsylvania is affirmed and the decree of the New Jer sey court is reversed." In each case costs are imposed. ,* '\ s 1 ^ LUMBER COMPANY WILL FIGHT 'a* TRAFFIC STOPPED Tienp for Twenty Hours on C. P. R. Caused by Heavy Rains.

Washington, May 19.Former Secre tary Carlisle, while walking thru the treasury department transacting business for his clients as unconcernedly as if he had never been in control of the govern-' ment millions, expressed his views on the political situation cleverly when he said: "From what I ha-ve heard I believe the democratic party has an excellent op portunity to elect its candidate." Then the former secretary added, with a twinkle in his eye, "if the leaders get together." His presence herre has started a nat ural fund of gossip relative to the avail ability of Mr. Carlisle. He was secretary of the treasury under Cleveland, but his leaning towards silver was notorious, and it is well known that if the secretary of* the treasury had had his way the coun try would have been on a silver basis in the summer of 1894. On this account, it is believed, the Bryan men would take to Carlisle much more kindly than to any other man intimately asspclated with the Cleveland administration. Coming from Kentucky he would have the enthusiastic support of the south, could carry Missouri and would be in a position to make a dangerous sortie into Indiana. On the other hand the ex-secretary has long been practicing, law in New York city, and could probably secure the support of that state, providing Hill and Parker are put out of the way.^V / &*/4$&*Xjy' r-!
