WELCOME TO CIAORI Union Veteians Invade Washintoni CITY IN GALA ATTIRE Posts Arrive on Every Train at Both Stations. LOCAL COMMITTEES HAVE M A DE THEIR ARRANGE MENTS FULL AND COMPLETE. Program of Events to Be Carried Out w-Camp Roosevelt to Be Ded icated Today. Washington welcomes the Grand Army of the Republic! The city is bright with signs of greeting and vibrant with glad sounds. The brick and marble of her walls are buried under colors that were an inspiration to brave deeds, and the air is rhythmic with songs that urged men on to glory. The face of every one who dwells in sight of the great white dome smiles a welcome. Washington seeks to give expression to its joy in decor ations, in illuminations, in music, and in varied and hearty hospitality. This is a happy day! Old Time, proof against gold, flattery, or pity, has made pathetic gaps in the ranks of those who fought that the Union might endure, that liberty might be more than a theory, that a hapless race might hope, and that the republic of the United States-the noblest effort at self-government ever made by man-should not fail. But, against this sole sad feature of the day may be reckoned this: That Time has adjusted old misunderstandings, healed old mores, unified a people, and brought ancient foes to call each other brother. No north ern flower is too gentle for a southron's grave; no southern praise too tender for a northman's tomb! With such magic has Time wrought upon the memories of men that the passion of the sections is deeper buried than all the bones that molder from the Potomac to the James. It is a vast change that has come since the battle-flags were furled. This Is not the first time that Washington has thrown wide its gates to the host in blue. It is the sixth. Washington's first welcome to the men of the Union was in the spring of 1861, when armies of hostile men glowered at her from all the south, and grim batteries frowned from the Virginia hills. Crudely equipped militia from Pennsylvania and a company of regulars from Minnesota hastened to the support of the District volunteers who had been suddenly called to arms. Next came the 6th Massachusetts Volunteers, bringing bloody evidence of conflict in the streets of Baltimore. Following the bay state troops at an interval of a week came the 7th New York Regiment. Then there came rank on rank of valiant men, till a bulwark of stout hearts, steel and bronze was reared be tween Washington and the confederate forces at Harper's Ferry, Manassas, Fair fax and Aquia creek. A girdle of gleaming bayonets and shotted guns was bound about the city that no one might enter unbidden or unchallenged. The second welcome which Washington gave the soldiers whom she entertains to day was in the summer of 1861. when the great army of the Union fell back fr m the hills and valleys of the fateful B3ull Run fields, and when fresh commands, un daunttd by disaster and animated to hero endeavor by defeat, poured out of the east and down from the north, to rally, cheer and strengthen McDowell's broken fo-ce. All that Washington had to give-sympa thy. food and shelter-she gave. The third reception to the sold'ers of the republic was In the summer of 1864, when two divisions of the 6th Corps swept north ward through the city to meet and foil Jubal Early's daring legIons on the heights of Brightwood. Here it was that the UnIon's capital, which armies fought to shield and other armies fought to seize, was drawn from out of the enemy's very elutch. The fcurth time Washington gave wel come to the troops of the nation was In 1865. when the war was done. This was the "grand review." It was an event in the course of the nation which has been ac centuated by the historian, the poet and the painter. There were miles of men, brown with the sun and gray with dust of the march; they were proud in their -triumph and bold in their mien from long companionship with Death in all the horrid shapes he takes; they were strong in "the * onsciousness of duty faithfully performed" and joyous that they were returning to the ways of peace and home. These thunder ing columns, with throbbing drum and shrieking fife, ringing bugle and ragged flag. dingy with battle grime, moved by. It was a majestic spectaclethat stands out boldly in the literature of the land; a glam orous show that will not fade from the ceemory of man. The. next reception which Washington ex tended to the defmnders of the flag was the reunion of the Grand Army of the Republic h IB2. Twenty-seven years had gone since agriSm-visad war had smoothed his wrinkled front" and bruised arms had been hung tp for monuments. Great tracts of country that had trembled under gun-fire and had been plowed by shell, that had been drenched with blood and furrowed with trenches for the dead, had grown calm and green. Fields of grain were waving in the once desolated valley of the Shenan doah and over the war-worn plain of east Virginia. 4 generation had been born and had come to manhood in the country of the James, the Chickahominy, the Rappahan nock and the Rapidan; the Mississippi. the Cumberland and the Tennessee. Many monuments and a myriad of tombs had been built over the land, and long lines of simple stones, white, still and eloquent, had arisen at Gettysburg, Sharpsburg, Arling ton, Alexandria, Fredericksburg and scores of other places. Old cannon were green from long disuse and bayonets were rusty. Earthworks that had not been cut away were upgrown with trees or jungle. There had been a score and seven years of peace, but now and then blood dripped from the old wound. There were some memories that would not rest. A strange thing called politics would not let time sweeten the awful bitterness of civil war. All swords were sheathed, but unkind tongue or vengeful pen would some times prick old scars. That was in September, 1802. Ten years have come and gone since the Grand Army of the Republic trod the streets of Washington. In that decade the organization has shrunk in numbers, but gained in the people's love. Death thit did not come to these men in the guise of Mars has come to many of them in the form of age. "Year by year Valhalla claims an in creasing host." But as the Grim Reaper gathers his harvest the country clings the closer to those who have escaped his scythe. The actors in America's heroic age grow dearer as their ranks get thin. In the companies of marching men today there are few on whom the passing years have not set their mark. There are fewer whose step is alert and whose eye is keen. They marched grandly in 1865, they march proudly 'today; but they are getting old. The thoughts of men go forward to that time when the Grand Army of the Republic will be but dust in the earth and a brave example to the generations that are to come. It is a solemn thought, but it is God's way. Washington gives reverent thought to the men who marched here in 1861, '64, '65 and '92, and whose souls are where no- trumpet calls to arms, no bugle sounds the charge. The capital does not forget the dead while she cheers with all her heart the men who march today. She gives a welcome which, as a distinguished local writer has said, "contains within itself the aggregated warmth and enthusiasm and gratitude of all the greetings of the pant." If Washing ton could compress all her emotions and tell them In just one word, that word would be "Welcome." It is significant that today everybody shouts hurrahI as the soldiers, with their riddled flags, go by. Washington was founded in the south and by the south. Southerners guarded its infancy. George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, James Mad ison, Henry Clay, John C. Calhoun and An drew Jackson were among the stanchest friends the town had. The District of Co lumbia was carved out of the territory of two slave states-Maryland and Virginia and that which is now the District was a part of southern Maryland, a section of the country southern in geography and pro foundly southern in sentiment and tradi tion. Slavery was the law in the capital. The people here were as divided on th4 sub ject of secession and cognate issues ps were the people of Maryland, West Virginia, Kentucky and Missouri. Yet a the crum bling legions march In review, recalling strife that billowed the land with graves and moistened every hearth with tears, everybody shouts hurrahl The capital has truly become the capital, the common property, the common pride and the common meeting ground of the people of the north, the south, the east, the west. Washington has become "the crystal lization of the national idea, the substantial embodiment of the abstract Union, the ma terialization of a power superior to that of the state. It owes no divided allegiance to a state. It is the city of the nation-of the whole nation." The national capital is the soldiers' mon ument. It is the seat of the government he preserved. It Is the city which, so far as the eastern campaigns were concerned, he protected by keeping himself between it and its enemy. While his eye was on Rich mond. his hand was on Washington. He planted guns wherever an enemy might ap proach. He stood guard in the surrounding hills. His bayonet was alwa'ys fixed. It may be that he was drilled on the fields in and about the city. It may be that, strick en with disease or struck in action, he was nursed in the hospitals here. For Washing ton from 1861 to 1865 was a fortress, an armed camp, a drill ground and a hospital. Thousands of recruits were fashioned into fighting men here. Ambulance and supply trains and flag-wrapped coffins were com mon in the city's streets, And when the war was done It was large ly through the soldiers' influence and affec tion that in all the people there "grew the determination to permit the capital to re main no longer a national humiliation,. but to cause It to become instead a source of national pride." It is here that -memorials have been erect ed to many of the valorous and skilful sol dier's. Effigies in bronze and images in stone of great patriots stand in the public parks, and as the years roll by additions to the list of memorials will be ade.

The physicians feel thal the healing of the wound will be retarded as long as the President is engaged in work that takes all his time and most of his en ergy. Senators Pritchard of North Carolina and Burrows of Michigan saw the President to day. Senator Pritchard talked with the President about political affairs in North Carolina. He says he has done nothing to urge the candidacy of Judge Robert M. Douglas of North Carolina, for the courl of claims judgeship, for the reason that President Roosevelt told him- distinctly several times that there was no opportunity for a North Carolina man in connectior with the vacancy. Senator Pritchard de clares that he would not have the judge ship hiinself if the position were offered tc him. Senator Burrows is in the city for the encampment and will remain here during the week. MITCHETLL ON THE MOVE. Starts Unexpectedly at Early Hour fox Philadelphia. WILKESBARRE, Pa., October 6.-Presi dent Mitchell of the miners' union left here on the Lehigh Valley railroad at 4:25 o'clock this morning, presumably for Philadelphia. The object of his visit there, or when he de cided to go, cannot be learned at head quarters, as the utmost secrecy is main tained. As late as 11:30 o'clock last night, when he locked up his office and went to bed, he said he did not expect to leave the city until tonight, when he would depart for Bbffal. It is possible he may remain In Philadelphia only a -short time and go from there to New York or Washington. The only person in authority at strike headquarters today is District President Duffy, who arrived from Hazleton this morning. He refuses to talk. The entire Wyoming valley was quiet to day. The troops, as usual, made a tour of the region, but found nothing to do. As far as can be learned no more men went to work at any of the collieries. The Sterling washery at Plymouth made an attempt to start up, but no men reported for work. ADAMS TO MAiE LONG CRUISE. Will Pay a Visit of Exploration to Wake Island. SAN FRANCISCO, October 6.-The train ing ship Adams, with 175 naval apprentices on board, is preparing to sail on an ex tended cruise.

MORGAN MIGHT ACT INDUSTRIES ARE AFFECTED 3 SCARCITY OF COAL. Objection to Allowing the President to Gain Prestige From a Settlement of the Trouble. The fact that Frank P. Sargent, con.e rissioner general of Immigration, and forp mer chief of the' Brotherhood of Locamo tiv% Firemen, left Washington at 2 o'clock this afternoon. almost immediately after a conference at the White House with Presi dent Roosevelt, leads to the belief, practi cally certain, that Mr. Sargent is going to meet President Mitchell of the Miners' Union, to discuss with him the latest phases of the strike situation. It is probable Mr. Sargent will meet Mr* Mitchell in P40adelphia tonight or tomor" row, and lay before the chief of the strik. ere the President's hopes that the strik* leader may see his way clear to end the strike at this time. Mr. Sargent refused to discuss his visit to the President when he left the White House at 1:30 o'clock this afternoon, and little would have been known of his departure had Je not been seen to take a train for the north this af ternoon. As one of the most Influential labor lead ers in the United States it is fitting that Mr. Sargent put before Mr. Mitchell what ever facts he may be authorized to say, and he is likewise an excellent man to obtain from Mr. Mitchell whatever views that official has as to accepting sugges tions for ending the strike. It is believed Mr. Sargent will return to Washington to morrow and report the result of his visit. To Sound Mitchell. The chances are decidedly strong that Mr. Sargent will do little except to suggest that Mr. Mitchell call the strike off and de pend upon a healthy public sentiment and possible action by Congress at its next ses sion to finally make amends for the loss the strikers may incur in doing this. It is said today on good authority that there is little likelihood that Mr. Mitchell will be asked to call the strike off on on promise that Congress will be -asked to in vestigate the strike aA act -for the best interests of all concerned. Stich a thing as that would be too entirely vague for any body, and Mr. Mitchell would probably not pay any attention to it. It is thought to be most likely that Mr. Sargent will endeavor to ascertain just hoW far Mitchell would entertain a request of the President for calling the strike off be cause of the suffering that is certain to oc cur If it continues. That is all the Presi dent could sa y and wisely do, and should nothing come of It he would simply be at the end of plans for a settlement unitu some pressure could be diplomaticalig brought to bear on Governor-Stone to tab action in the Pennsylvania courts oe through the legislature. The great faith the miners have in the President may induce President Mitchell to make some offer for the settlement ot the trouble that may lead to further hope of a settlement. It is not understood that President Roose velt is sending any request to President Mitchell. He is merely endeavoring to find what would be the outcome if he should make certain suggestions as to calling the strike off. Morgan Might Intervene. Many of those who are In close relations with administl'ation circles are looking for ward to seeing the coal strike ended by th4 last man the public would naturally tur4 to for such an act. The intermediator whose voice may be heard at any time is I. Pierpont Morgan. His action will not be because of any love he has for President Roosevelt or because he wants to see thq operators give way in the slightest degree to the demands of the miners, but because he is being pinched in his other industrie by the shortage of coal. It is not becaus he is moved by any picture of Oold fire sides, but his system is shocked by the thought of cold blast furnaces and inter ference with money-making eoncerns which contribute to his success an the leader in the industrial world. Con tracts are on hand in many of these con cerns sufficient to occupy them for two years to come. The prices at which these contracts are to be executed are stipulated. Every additional dollar added to the cost of coal to carry out the contracts is 0.. dollar deducted from the column of profits. To great concerns using thousanids of tons of coal daily this is a very important itenti of expense, It touches the pocket of the industrial leaders and the pocket may be more sensitive than the heart. If Mr. Morgan determines to end the coal strike it is believed he will come forward on the ground of relieving the public of S great calamity. There never has been ant likelihood that he would give the President prestige before the country byallowing the strike to be ended in any way he might sug gest. The meeting of Mr. Morgan with the President at the W~hite House when tlb Attorney General was about to institute a suit against the Northern Securities Com pany was enough to derine the relations be tween Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Morgan for the future. "Mr. President. do you not think It Is un - wise to Institute this suit and to affect the stock market as such action is sure to af feot it?" asked Mr. Morgan. "Mr. Morgan," responded the President, in that deliberate and forceful manner for which he is so well known, "I am neither a bull nor a bear on the stock market. But I want it understood that I will as raiy institute a suit against the most infnta men in the financial world as Iwol against the most influential labor leaderd if they were violating law. I say this with out ill-will agrainst any one In the financial world or in labor circles. I will execute the law as it applies to any leader in financtal circles as readily as I v ould execute It against any striker who might violate law." No Prestige for President. After that interview Mr. Morgan was known to be heartily opposed to the renomi nation of Theodore Roosevelt, and when the railroad presidents came to this city in re sponse to the ~President's Invitation fler s conferdnce on the coal question it was well understood they would do nothing that would place Mr. Roosevelt in the pelimM of the one wuho bad ended the strike. Wem wili be done by the coSraflroads ove A IhMr. Morgan dominde + ~ to add to the prestige of Mr. Ranu- if4 msa pr'event it.
