Politic. SertM. Business.
The Governor returned to New York
to-day from the longest trip of his cam
paign. His voice noticeably had lost Its
volume and Intensity, but he easily made
himself heard to his auditors at the
Astor and at Louis Martin's, where he
addressed the Association of Democratic
French and Canadians of Greater New
York. He also was scheduled to appear
at Sulzer's Harlem Rrver Park, where
tfce Democratic candidate for Governor
spoke to about 500 members of the
Italian Benevolent Society and the Unit
ed Italian Societies, but feared his voice
Mould be unable to stand the strain.
"Politics In America," said the Gover
nor, at the Knights of Columbus dinner,
"Is a more serious business than It Is
anywhere else In the world, because
there are so many precedents that you
have to reverse; there are so many plans
that you dare not cut off; there are so
many boasts that you dare not redeem.
"There Is so much behind us, the pace
Is so tremendous, and the Impulse so Ir
resistible, that every generation In
America must be better than the genera
tion before It, or else It will be dis
credited. Understanding: with Canada.
Speaking at Martin's the Governor said
that political allegiance Is coming. to be
a different thing than It .used to be.
"We love our home," he told the
French and Canadians there' assembled,
"in proportion that they are homes, and
I hope Canadians feel as much at home
in New York as I have felt In Canada.
"L have no prediction to make about
Canada except this very delightful pre
diction that Canada and the United
States will more and more thoroughly
understand one another and like one an
other as the years go by. We have com
mon Ideals, we have common hopes, we
have common views, and for the time
being Canada lias a better banking and
currency system than the United States."

Washington to-day presents the appear
ance more than ever of a cosmopolitan
city, for she is the host of delegations of
business men from more than forty for
eign countries, representing the fifth In
ternational Congress of the Chambers of
Commerce. They arrived at union bta-
Uon last night about 7 o'clock in two sec
tions of a special train which brought
them over the Pennsylvania Railroad
from Pittsburg. D. J. Kaufman, chair
man of the entertainment committee.
joined the tourists In Pittsburg, and came
to Washington In the first section of the
train, becoming acquainted with the dis
tinguished travelers and making arrange
ments with the heads of the excursion
for everybody's comfort In Washington.
Thomas Grant, secretary of me local
trade body, was a passenger in the sec
ond section of the train, and performed
the same duties there. Each ot the dele
gates was provided w ith a card which In
dicated the name of his hotel, and several
of the important buildings of the city
which are to be visited. On the trans
verse side of the card was the condensed
programme of the entertainment pro
tided by the business men of Washing
ton. Arrangements were also made on
board the trains for the sending of bag
gage to the several hotels, and when the
coaches arrived at the station automo
biles were waiting and the 400 and more
tourists were taken care of without a
hitch. All got to the dinner tables In the
several hotels In record Ume.
Babel of Toinei.
The party of tourists Is an interest
ing one, alike In personnel and appear
ance. They give the impression of vig
orous, well-fed, and groomed business
men ot the world. With the fewest ex
ceptions there is nothing In dress or
bearing to distinguish them from thou
sands of other tourists who come to the
Capital City every year. But when they
come to speak, and when one listens
to the conversations going on among
them it amounts j to a babel of tongues.
There are the rough gutterals of the Rus
sian, the. more wamlllar sounds of the
German speech, the fluent and flowing
French, the musical Italian, the language
of Greece, which Is slowly becoming a
little understandlble to us in this coun
try, sstsk. besides these are the languages
of the Balkans and Turkey, of India and
China and Japan.
The tourists, of course, speak a little
English, for they have been In the coun
try several weeks, have traveled about
a bit, and being most Intelligent people
they have picked up words and phrases
of the English language and are able
to answer questions and to speak a few
words, but when they really talk "with
one another It is in the home speech.
Quite a large segment of the party
cornea from Latin-America, and there all
speak Spanish, and that language Is
possibly the principal one heard among
the delegates. -if

of the Fatherland. The young, man's''
eyes brightened, and he said:
"I speak English fairly well, and I am
delighted to meet you. Yes, we have
had a most delightful Journey. I am
amazed at the bigness of things here.
We hae In Germany many grand
things, but you Americana outdo us In
everything big and grand. T like the ar
rangements tor travel. I like the hotels.
I like the people I have met. Many of
them were once In the Fatherland, but
they have come here to the big, new
country, and the larger opportunities,
and I am Justly proud of the German
Americans I have met on this trip. We
have lost the cream of the old nation,
and you have It here. The Journey? 1
can't speak of it except to say that It
has been wunderschoenste, which, you
know, with us Is the last to be said
about It. In Chicago, In Dayton. In Cin
cinnati, and in Pittsburg It seemed as
though the very best those cities had to
give us was spread before us. We will
carry back to Europe big Ideas of your
country, and the Impressions we have
received must last a lifetime. I love
Germany, and I have large Interests
there, but I have sometimes thought on
this Journey that I ought to be here in
stead of in the Old World. It Is in
truth a young man's country, and it is
not strange to me now that so many of
the Old World have come here to live
with the Americans."
The young man said his name was
Ritter, and that was all that the re
porter needed to know about him.
Praises J. H. Fahey.
One ot the English delegates spoke ot
the arrangements of the trip under the
charge of the Chamber of Commerce
of Boston. He said it would be im
possible for men to do more than John
H. Fahey and his lieutenants had done
for the comfort of so large a crowd. All
the way the arrangements had been per
fect, and everything had gone off with
no trouble to the delegates, he said.
"We know when we strike a new city
that are to be taken care of In every
way." he replied. "We hae no worry
about luggage, no worry about hotels,
no worry about where to go and when.
for it's all thought out in advance. It
has been a most delightful Journey.
"But." continued the Englishman, "we
have been looking forward In anticipation
of our visit to Washington. We expect It
to be the banner town. If I may so ex
press it. without disparagement to the
other places where we have been so
hospitably entertained. But we are ex
pecting to view your Capital with pleas
ure, and for one I am anxious for day
light to-morrow that I may get about
and see with my own eyes this city about
which I have read and heard so much. I
met the young man who is secretary of
your Chamber of Commerce to-dar. and
had a talk with him about your city, and
I think It must be a wonderfdl town."
One of the eminent delegates of the
congress Is the Hon. Francisco A. Pezet,
from Peru. He is making the Journey
with his fellow-delegates accompanied by
his wife. Senor Pezet was secretary of

der of Herman Rosenthal, the gambler, and told a remarkable-storyj
of Beckers keen interest in the death of Rosenthal.
The answer to any one of a hundred separate questions asked wool
have been sufficiently startling to serve as a climax in an ordinary mur
der trial. But a shudder ran through
his interview with Becker a few hours after the murder.

Blount Is. In part, as follows:
Whereas Mr. George ,W. Perkins, the
most notorious litlng personification of
Socialism-breeding cor,3rat'm Influence,
chairman of the tin ce-bmmlttee ot

through exemption from the export tax
collected at Manila under the act of
March 8. IXC. on all hemp exported.
through which strangle-hoid said trust
has been able to beat down the price
paid the Filipino farmer for his hemp
to Just one-half what It was ten 5 ears

been declared annually by all our gov

to the Philippines by Col. Roosevelt to
be a free gift to the said Hemp Trust
out of the poverty of the Philippine
Treasury and the Filipino people; and
Whereas in this lear of grace Mil

make It clear to Asia that George W
Perkins does not own Oriental wards

hope Mr. Wilson will be elected. I can
see no reason why he should fall. No
matter who Is elected, there will 'cc no
hard times in this country for some time
to come. The market la good and the
