Richmond, Va., Oct. IS. Today will
be a memorable day in the history of
this city. Never before has It been
so thoroughly aroused and enthused
over any event as it has been over iie
visit of President Roosevelt, who ar

shortly after noon. Never before has
this city been so profusely decorat.Td
and never have the citizens shown
greater enthusiasm than they did to

The day was generally observed as
a holiday. All pnblic and private
schools were closed, as were all pub
lic offices, banks and nearly all busi
mess houses. The city presented a
beautiful sight. Nearly every house
in town was decorated with flags and
the principal streets, like Main, Broad
and Fifth, as well as many of the
cross streets, were perfect bowers cf
Sags. Flags were in evidence every
where. They waved from every flag
pole In town, hung from windows,
roofs and wires 3tretched across the
streets. Even the street cars were
decorated with flags and the fronts
of hundreds of buildings in the busi
jess part of the city were richly and
tastefully draped with large flags and

I trust I need hardly say how great
is my pleasure at speaking in this
historic capital of your state; the
state than which no other has con
tributed a larger proportion to tho
leadership of the nation; for on the
honor roll of those American worthies
-whose greatness Is not only for the
age, but for all time, not only for
one nation, but for all the world, on
this honor roll Virginia's name stands
above all others. And in greeting all
of you, I know that no one will grudge
my saying a special word of acknowl
edgement to the veterans of the civil
war. A man would indeed be but a
poor American who could without a
thrill witness the way In which, in
city after city in the north as well as
In the south, on every public occasion,

people, a people infinitely richer be
cause of the priceless memories left to
all Americans by you men who fought
5m the great war. Last Memorial Day
I spoke In Brooklyn, at the unveiling
erf a statue of a northern general, un
der the auspices of the Grand Army of
the Republic, and that gTeat audience
cheered every allusion to the valor and
self-devotion of the men who followed
Lee as heartily as they cheered every
allusion to the valor and self-devotion
of the men who followed Grant. The
wounds left by the great civil war
have long healed, but its memories
romafn. Think of It, cm my country
men, think of the good fortune that Is
ours! That whereas every other war
of modern times has left feelings of
rancor and bitterness to keep asunder
the combatants, our great war has
left to the sons and daughters of the
men who fought, on whichever side
they fought, the same right to feel
the keenest pride in the great deeds
alike of the men who fought on one
side and of the men who fought on
the other. The proud self-sacrifice.
the resolute and daring courage, the
high and steadfast devotion to the
rieht as each man saw It, whether
northerner or southerner, these qual
ltles render all Americans forever the
debtors of those who in the dark days
from '61 to '65 proved their truth by
their endeavor. Here around Rich
mond, here in your own state, there

who counted death as but a little

Enters Mutual Life Investiga
tion McCurdy Kicks
New York, Oct. 18. The district at-torne3-'s
office was called upon today
by the legislative Investigation com
mittee because of the testimony of orio
witness, and the question of an arrest
for perjury is now being considered by
Assistant District Attorney Rand.
The witness In question is Geo. J.
Plunkitt, an 18-year-old telephone op
erator In the employ of the stationery
firm of L. W. Lawrence & Co., from
whom the Mutual Life Insurance Com
pany purchased a great deal of sup
plies. It was brought out in yesterday's
testimony that among the vouchers for
money charged legal expenses was i
one fcr $1,901, signed by George J.
Plunkitt. Ills identity was not dis
closed until today, when Plunkitt was
called to the stand. He testified as
to his employment, and when shown
the voucher denied that he had ever
signed it. He further denied that he
had ever received that amount of mon
ey from the Mutual Life, or that he
had rendered the company any service
whatever. Mr. Hughes asked Plunkitt
to write his rame in ink on a piece of
paper, which he did This and the
voucher were then offereJ in evi
dence, and the similarity of the signa
tures were called to attention of the

New York. Oct. IS. There was a
sharp nassage at arms at the insurance
investigation today bPtween Counsel
Hughes and James H. Beck, acting
for McCurdy, president of the Mutual
Life Insurance Compa'ny. Beck pro
tested that Hughes had frequently led
up to points which gave newsnaners
the opportunity "to put ugly imputa
iobs against McCurdy," and ths
Hushes dropped the inquiry beforr
McCurdy had a chance to explair
Hughes then said that If he had errer
at all It had been by showing court
esy when circumstances justified se
vere measures. "A witness who gets
himself into a false position," he said,
"has only himself to blame."
TEN-YEAR-OLD BOY SHOT.
Was Taking Shotgun From
and Cropped It.
Phoenix, Oct. 18. Dan Maddox, ten
years of age, lies between life and
death as the result of a gunshot
wound In the right shoulder, received
about 5 o'clock Tuesday afternoon
while removing a gun from a wagon
near his father's ranch some ten miles
west of Phoenix.
No one was with the boy at the
time of the accident
and no complete ,
explanation can be
iven by him as ,
to how it occurred. It is supposed
that he tried to lift the gun out of the
wagon and dropped It, and the ham
mers striking a spoke of the wheel
both barrels were discharged.
Dr. H. A. Hughes, who Is attending
the injured boy, stated this afternoon
that his recovery is a matter of spec
ulation. The greater part of the flesh
where the right arm enters the
shoulder was shot away and the bone
When Maddox was shot his clothing
took fire, the flesh being badly burned
in addition to the other injuries.

Utterances During Busy Day in North Yesterday
Teemed With Appreciation of Great Worth of
Arizona-Declare Statehood Not Far Distant

, Adamna, Ariz., Oct. 18. The
uous day today. The great petrified forests here were Inspected i
this morning.and later the party visited Flagstaff, Wlnslow and Hoi- .
At Flagstaff Congressman Tawney addressed the Normal School K
and assured the pupils that he did not believe in unwilling unions, ,
and thought that when the party returned and voted this fall their K
course would be satisfactory, both In New Mexico and Arizona. He ,
congratulated Arizona on her schools, and said both Arizona and .
New Mexico were great domains, and believed that a few yeans devel- K
opment would make them the equals of any state in the Union. ,
Tho Lowell observatory, saw mills and public schools were vis- K
ited at Flagstaff and the citizens there expressed their preference for K
territorial government to joint statehood with New Mexico. At .
Wlnslow, Congressman Adams complimented the people on their .
schools and the intelligence of tha territory, saying that the day was H
coming when they would get single statehood. When the schools ,
dismissed the children came to the train to shake hands with the vis- ,
itors. Fruits from the valley were brought aboard in baskets. ,
At Holbrook, Congressman Miner said Arizona and New Mexico ".
were each rich enough to become single states, and in a few jears K
Congress would ask them to come, and they would not have to beg. K
The government of tho United States, he said, was fast being wrest-
e! from the narrow-minded politicians of the east, and becoming ,
centralized in tho Mississippi valley, which assured fair treatment .
to the two territories. He urged Arizona to cease statehood agita- .
tion, and thus defeat jointure, continue her development, and she .
would soon become a state. The unanimous sentiment of Arizen- v,
sns everywhere the party has visited has been against joint state- v,
hood with New Mexico, preferring to remain a territory rather than ?
suffer jointure, beinr- the sentiment expressed.

Jurors Convene on 30th.
Chairman Bowen, of the Board of
Supervisors, yesterday received a tel
egram from Judge Doan in reply to
that sent regarding postponement of
the date for opening the next term ot
the District Court. The telegram did.
not state positively that postponement
would not be made, but the .utimatlou
was that the Judge would open court
at the time he originally expected to
do so, and would carry It on as best
he could with the men at work in
the court room finishing the work in
hand. In this event court will lt all
probability open on the 25lh of this
month. The trial Jury will convene
on the 30th. As the first part of the
session will be devoted to the hear
ing of civil cases, the judge will prob
ably be able to conduct his work in
chambers for the most part until the
court room Is ready. This is probably
what he contemplates.
