SPIRIT OF LINCOLN PRESIDENT'S MODEL Nation Warned Against Vindic tiveness in Speech at Oys ter Bay. WANTS ABUSES RIGHTED BUT WITHOUT RANCOR Cites Recent Session of Congress to Illustrate His Point. Oyster Bay, L. I., July 4.President Roosevelt today delivered a Fourth of July oration to his townspeople in a natural amphitheater in a grove at Oy ster Bay. Addressing: his auditors as "my old friends and neighbors, you among whom I was brought up ad among whom I have lived for so many years/' the president said it was a great pleasure to say a few words of greeting and in a sense to give an ac count of his stewardship. Mr. Roose velt said that, while there were two or three things about which he wanted to talk, he would take for his text the words of Abraham Lincoln just after Ms election: "In any great national trial hereaf ter, the men of that day, as compared with those of this, will be as weak and as strong, as base and as good. Let us, therefore, study for the future." And later: ''So long as I have been here I have not planted a thorn in any man's bosom." Lincoln as Nation's Model. Speaking on the conditions at the time when Lincoln spoke those words, the president said it was possible for Lincoln to say with entire truth that he bore no rancor and did his work without hatred to the doer of evil. Lincoln did not treat anything that was done against him as a wrong call ing for vengeance, but for a remedy. It is in just that sphit, the president said, that the American people must approach their problems of today. We have not as great problems as Lincoln had," he said, "but we have problems, and the way we face them will give our children cause for pride or for shame. If citizens of Lincoln's time had not done their duty we could not have held up our heads today." "Hear, hear,'' came from the assem bled crowd. "Will you stop talking over there," ejaculated the president, pointing to a distant carriage in which some persons were talking. "Is he deaf?" some one asked as the conversation continued. "We'll make him dumb also. (Laughter.) Honesty Greatest Need. "Thank you," added the president as the annoyance eeased. Continuing, he said that our duty calls for the exercise of more than one quality on our part. First, honesty, which meant disinterested devotion to what is right. Without this all others would count for naught. In 1860 the sentiment, "The union must be pre served," was the saving quality. It was patriotism first and then the cour age to make that patriotism avail. The old soldier he saw before him, knew this. I don't care how devoted the old soldier was to the union," said the president, "if when the crisis oame he ran away. We needed then first and foremost moral courage, and back of it the physical courage. "That was what we needed, wasn't it, comrade?" addressing a veieran be fore him. "Exactly,* waa the reply, "You needed sanity and^ common sense in addition to the qualities of pa triotism and courage, and that is just what you need today. You must be honest, clean living, right thinking. You will not be worth much without these, and back of these we must have sanity and common sense. We must not blindly refuse to recognize wrongs that exist. "Now, gentlemen," he continued, "we have heard during the past year of frightful iniquities in business life and moral delinquencies in moral life." Do Not Be Vindictive. "Do not ever get into the frame of mind to wliich under great provocation Abraham Lincoln refused to yield. Do not hesitate to visit punishment where it must be inflicted for good of others, but do not inflict punishment vindict ively. There is enough wrong to fight. Cut it out. "Then, again, there is enough wrong done by men of large means and enough wrong done by men of small means. If a man has a twisted morality he will show that twisted morality wherever he may be.'' At this point the rain ceased and the president congratulated those who had stayed. He then referred to the work of this congress in the direction of fed eral control over business. We have accomplished a fair amount because we have not tried too much," said he, "and because we ap proached it without rancor." Will Curb Bad Corporations. "In this task," the president said, "we have come in contact with some people we didn't like, and in protect ing property we have been forced to Irotec some of the property of the fel ow we did not want to. When it comes to the control of corporations, the ones that need control I will curb with out regard to others." (Applause.) The ram began to fall again at this point, but the president went on with out his rubber cape. Eeverting again to good citizenship, the president said the way to be a good citizen of the re public was to be a good citizen of Oyster Bay. Home the Criterion. "If a man goes to a Fourth of July Eelebration,conductshehimself said "and then goes ome and in such a way that his wife and children wished he had never come home, he is not a good citizen. The supreme test is a man's own family." The president then told a story of the man in his regiment who wanted to fight for his country and not dig kitchen sinks. He told the man to go on digging and dig well. "We must do the duties of humdrum citizenship," he concluded. "There is need for us to take this attitude. Then in time of need we shall rise as our fathers rose to every emergency." "SHORT," HE XIIXS SELF.

NATION PLUNDERED IN THE CANAL JOB Millions Will Be Lost by Closing Market for Supplies, Says Sullivan. New York, July 4-Congressman John A. Sullivan of Massachusetts, at the annual celebration of the Society of Tammany today, spoke in part as fol lows A few days ago the republican ma jority in both branches of congress forued upon the country^ a law compell ing the, canal commission to purchase its suplies from American manufactur ers whenever the prices of the latter were not unreasonable or extortionate. Within a week after the time that law received the president's signature, the Maryland Steel com- ?or any was awarded a contract two dredges at $362,000 each. The foreign concern offered to build them for $70,000 less, over 10 per cent. At that rate in $10,000,000 worth of sup plies which would be purchased next year Amerioan trusts will overcharge us 1,000,000, which, according to the ma lority in congross, will not be extor tionate or unreasonable. "The sale of American products in the canal zone next year will represent $1,000,000 of plunder. ^The sales of American manufactures to the people of the United States next year will surely be $16,000,000,000, and will there fore at the same rate represent $1,600,- 000,000 of plunder. Denounces Tariff. "Not only has the tariff system de, stroyed equality of taxation, closed the door of industry, and opportunity, and Eut racticed extortion upon our people, it has also been and must continue to be the rotten center of an ever widening circle of corruption, "The Chicago packers paid into the republican campaign treasury the price of the_ duty on hides and felt safe in poisoning communities the insurance companies of this state made contribu tions with which they purchased peace at Albany, the Pennsylvania railroad purchased immunity for years from the law forbidding the railroads to engage in the business of mining ooal, and Ine ship subsidy gang will pay their monev tot help elect a republican congress which will pass a ship subsidy biU. Bureaucracy Bising. "The people reason that they must fight the giant with a greater giant And thus they seek^ new laws in the na tion without exercising their remedies in the state. A bureaucracy is being established which maintains its lobby in the halls of congress and which in the future will completely overshadow that body. And when this government, because of its great size, has become unwieldy and threatens to break down, it will fall an easy prey to the hosts of socialism. Democracy "must protect the individual in his rightc, confine the federal gov ernment strictlv to its constitutional functions and thus make socialism im possible.

TH E MEMElflOiaS ^NMN vin *v Extension of North Minneapolis Trolley Projected Under Man agement of A. B. Bobbins, &u Anoka and Osseo are soon to be joined to Minneapolis by means of a trolley liner the proposed line being an extension of the, Hobbinsdale line of the North Minneapolis Street Bailway company. Thef North Minneapolis company, of wlgch A. B. Bobbins is president, is back of the proposed Os seo-Anoka line. Active preliminary work has al ready bee a und$$aken and as soon as arrangements cgft be completed the work will be pufibed. It is the plan of Mr. Bobbins and'his associates to se cure a private rS^t-of-way, rather than to use the counw road, which is too heavily traveled to make its use as a trolley route advisable. Mr. Bobbins is authority for the statement that un less the private'right-of-way can be secured, the linertwill not be built, Anoka sgounoil Busy. The preliminary arrangements have reached a point, where a special com mittee of the Anoka council, consisting of Alderman Herring,. Casey and Akin, with the city attorney, is investigating Mr. Bobbins' proposition and will re- ?ranohisethie ort to council Friday night. A the city of Anoka is de sired allowing the use of the streets and a power-house site. The sentiment of the residents -"and business interests of Anoka favors^the line, and there is said to be little doubt that so far as the city is concerned the Bobbins prop osition will be accepted. It is also be lieved that there will be no difficulty in securing the private rightof-way between Eobbinsdale and Anoka. The line will be of great value to the thick ly-settled country thru which it passes. Power Question Open. The question of power for the line is not yet decided." A powerhouse may be erected at Anoka or power may be bought as is the case with the Eobbins dale line, which gets its power from the street railway company. Numerous power developments are contemplated in the Mississippi river above Minne apolis, and power may be leased of one of these when available. The Bobbins interests are Teady to begin work as soon as the Anoka fran chise and the right of way are settled. Considerable steel has already been purchased and is on the ground. The company recently bought four double truck cars of the street railway com pany that will furnish ample' equip ment at first. There is other rolling stock in use on the line between Eob binsdale and its transfer, point with the Twentieth avenue N line at Penn and Thirty-second, avenues N. "toodttfey is'Populous. An inte*urban'',', Sated i% i?r AN0KA-0SSE0 LINE SOON fO BE BUILT passenger business only is contemplated. Cars will be equipped with a baggage compartment that will be ample for oaring for all parcels and packages that passengers may carry to and from the city. A regular and frequent service to the cities will benefit both the towns and country on the route and the city. The country is well settled and rich. The road will skirt the main county rpad, which is one of the finest in the state and is heavily 'traveled. It is esti that 1,500 teams pass thru Bob nsdale every day coming to Minne apolis. This season an automobile service was established! between Anoka and Eobbinsdale. Two machines, capable of carrying from sixteen to twenty pas sengers, make eight trips each daily, and are crowded all the time. A stage line on the other side of the river from Camden Place to Anoka makes two trips a day and is always crowded. It is believed that the proposed line will do a heavy business from the start.

Journal Special Service. New York, July 4.This Fourth of July promises to break all fireworks records. Never before has the business swelled to such proportions as this year It promises to surpass last year's *by~ 20 ie cent. When the retail stores closed their brief but active season last night, it is estimated that in the preceding ten days more than $12,000,000 thruout the United States had changed hands over their counters. Even from parts of the south where for years few firecrackers were sold to celebrate July 4th, large orders were re ceived. In New York city a sharp line is be ing drawn between fireworks, and prop erly considered dangerous explosives. A great feature this year was the Japanese daylight fireworks. These in clude various balloon-like contrivances, shaped to represent animals of various sorts, shot up from bombs and accom panied by many strange smoke effects. Elephants, lions, tigers, camels and horses are among the aerial menagerie and there are pretty effects in flags and flowers. These daylight fireworks are the especial contribution of the Japan ese who have not attained the skill in making firecrackers that has been so long possessed bv the Chinese. Another specialty of the present sea son is the electric fireworks which flash piercing rays like lightning, or burst into splendid showers of sparks.

Altoona, Pa., July4.Investigation todav of the runaway car accident near Portage last night showed that thirteen of a party of twenty -foreigners who were holding^ a celebration along the track were killed. Several others were injured. The car was loaded with a motor con signed to the Puritan Coal company and had been left standing on a siding near the mine shaft. Mine officials give it as their opinion that the striking for eigners loosened the brake and, started the car down the spur, altho another theory is that malicious boys sent the car off in a spirit of mischief. The disaster happened on what is known as Martin's curve, on a track four miles long that acts as a feeder for several mines. The incline is very steep and it is the custom to run cars down to Portage by gravity. The car had gone three miles before leaving the tracks and had gained a frightful mo mentum. It hit Martin's curve while going at full speed and left the tracks at a sharp angle, turning half way round and plunging into the crowd of merrymakers. The party had been drinking: and singing for several hours. One foreign er who returned to Portage to have nis injuries dressed declared that the party were singing a last song prior to retir ing for the night. When rescuers ar rived they were appalled by the fright ful sight that was presented. Oar Leaps Into Crowd. All of the dead men were Arabians who had lately been imported to work in the mines near Portage. Many of them were young. They lived a shanty near the scene of the disaster. It was impossible to see the car in its headlong flight down the incline until it was within twenty feet of where it left the tracks. It cleared the tracks, plunging several feet into the air and alighting squarely upon the Arabians. The awful suddenness made escape out of the question. REQUESTS ROOSEYELT TO BE BRYAN'S HOST New York, July 4.William Hoge. president of the Commercial Travelers' Anti-Trust league, today sent a letter to President Roosevelt inviting Mr. Boosevelt to preside at the reception to be tendered W.

The only man struck waa one of the eagfcared men, who the Few Accidents to Mar the" Ob# servance of the National Holiday. PLENTY OF NOISE BUT FEW CASUALTIES Police Have- Less Trouble Rigidly Enforcing City Ordinances. If a sane Fourth of July is possible, Minneapolis had one today, and altho there were several slight accidents, no one was seriously injured before noon and in many parts of the city almost a Sabbath quiet prevailed. From the start the police enforced the ordinances rigidly. There was by far more noise last evening than to day, and as it has been the custom in former years for many persons to make their noise on the evening of July 3, the police did not interfere except where the celebrators were careless or used revolvers instead of firecrackers. Nearly a hundred revolvers were taken from boys, and two or three young men were arrested and locked up for placing explosives on the streetcar tracks. The city has been freer from this evil than ever before. The fine weather made it possible for the small boy to go to the pleasure resorts, as he is always willing to do, and accordingly that much noise was lemoved from the city proper. The woods about the city limits were crowd ed with picnic parties, and many police men were detailed at those places to prevent the careless use of fireworks and to be on hand in case of accident or trouble. Little Drunkenness. One noticeable fact was the lack of drunkenness. Altho the saloons wera open, their business was not rushing, and the down-town places did an un usually light business. The business streets were almost deserted and onlv &n occasional firecracker told the dii ference between this and the ordinary, holiday. Police Superintendent Doyle placed many of the night men on duty at noon today, and many of the day men will work until late tonight. Every detec tive was on duty and there is little prospect of trouble in any part of the city. The fire department also had a quiet time until noon. There were no fires caused by fireworks and the only alarm answered was turned in by a small boy in North Minneapolis as a prank. Chief J. R. Canterbury grants no vacations during the months of July and August, and every fireman was ready for stren uous duty Sunday evening. Police and hospital officials are sur prised at the small list of accidents before the Fourth and today. Last year there were nearly a dozen acci dents due to firecrackers before the big day. This year but five were re ported. Four of these occurred last night and one June 25. Everybody Celebrates. Minneapolis was Fourth of July headquarters for the entire northwest today. The observance of lndependance D&y was more generafl thruout th city than usual anddays rivaled theAnthone celebrations village St and early Minneapolis. The pace estab lisned today is likely to be the markel by which all future Fourths will b' judged. Everybody who could do so took part in the celebration. The small boys and the still larger youths who rolled out of bed at dawn to begin the celebration re.ioi/-ed to see the sun, full-faced and smiling, rise in all his glory with rich,' promise of a bright, clear day. He hidi his face for a time early in the fore-, upon, but scared nobody. After plan ning for days and weeks for outings, with the picnic baskets already packed and the kids ready and waiting, with the best girl already invited and the day's program mapped out, with plane of other sorts already made, nobody allowed a cloudy sky and a few dronf of rain to interfere. Noise Began Early. The noisy celebration began eaxiy, Small skirmish engagements between the small boy and the festive finger cracker have been on for days, butlol-' lowing the stroke of midnight the real noise of the day broke forth. Trom early morning until the return ing crowds began to pour back into the city the streets were almost deserted. The quietude of Nicollet avenue remind ed one of a busy day on Bobert street in St. Paul. The first cars for the thou and and one pleasant resorts about the city were crowded. Some of the early Mmnetonka crowds, in order to be sure of a place, went out on the last carfl last night and camped for the night in\ the Excelsior commons and on othev picnic grounds about the lakes. With the morning cars came the crowds of early birds, mostly fishermen, but by 6 and 7 o'clock the family bud-1 ness was on full blast and every ear' played to a full house. The ten-minute service established by the company for1 Big and Little Celeb: The largest general gathering of I the day was nonestreeteav too fre quent, an dtho every available oar waa in commisison, crowds were always waiting at transfer points. The rail roads on both sides of the lake did a record business also. The St. Louis road ran full trains all day to the south shore, as did the Great Northern on the north shore. Every other line reaching lakes and picnic groves was busy. l?he groves', parks, and resorts about the city in every direction were filled to overflow ing with pleasure seekers. On all sides were smiling faces. The red, white and blue was everywhere visible.' Younj and old alike surrendered to of the day. tb#,!1 day was the Catholic picnic at Nelson grove in North Minneapolis, where 15,' 000 persons from the Catholic churches-1 and societies of the city gathered Jo? a monster picnic St. "Paul Oathoaea^j gathered at the state fair grounds for a similar celebration.
