Sea Girt, N. J., July 25.—No presi
dent ever received a more sincere
heartfelt and patriotic welcome than
that accorded Thursday to President
Koosevelt by the people of New Jer
sey. From the time he landed on New
Jersey soil at the Atlantic Highlands
pier at 1:35 Thursday afternoon until
he left in his launch for the war yacht
Jlayllower, anchored several miles off
the pier, at 3:15, he was the recipient
of a continuous ovation. The presi
dent, on invitation of Gov. Franklin
Murphy, extended through Senator
Kean, visited the encampment of the
Second brigade of the national guard
of the state at Sea Girt. Accompanied
by Mrs. Koosevelt, Miss Alice Roose
velt. Mr. and Mrs. W. Emlen Roose
velt. Miss Christine Roosevelt and As
sistant Secretary Loel), the president
left Sagamore Hill at 7 o'clock Thurs
day morning and boarded the May
flower, his official naval vessel, from a
A Warm Welcome,
Tlie run to within sight of Atlantic
Highlands was made by the Mayflower
In five hours, but the vessel came to
anchor there, as the water was too
shallow to admit of her approaching
the pier. Just as she anchored the
French liner LaSavoie, with Secretary
Boot. Gen. Horace Porter, ambassa
dor to France, and Gen. Leonard Wood
on board, passed-out to sea. As the
big liner swept near the presidential
vessel the Mayflower fired a salute of
17 guns in honor of the secretary of
war. The liner responded by dipping
her colors
Tnlks to the Troops.
Ten thousand people greeted the
presidential party at the Sea Girt sta
tion. President Roosevelt and other
distinguished guests were escorted in
carriages to the governor's cottage,
adjoining the military encampment,
less than half a mile from the station.
As he arrived at the cottage a presi
dent's salute of 21 guns was fired. Af
ter a brief rest and an informal re
ception at the cottage President
Koosevelt and Gov. Murphy and staff
reviewed the troops in camp, the
president being mounted oil a magnifi
cent chestnut bay which he sat per
fectly. At the conclusion of the re
view Mr. Roosevelt was escorted to a
stand adjoining the parade ground
end there addressed the assembled
troops and the multitude which had
gathered and which numbered by this
time nearly 15.000. The president said
in part:
The President's Address.
"I think that our people have not al
ways appreciated the debt they were un
der to the national guard. A man who
goes into the national guardi and does
his duty fairly and squarely there, puts
the whole country under an obligation to
him. Always in our his-tory it has been
the eas'e, as it will be In the future, that If
war should arise, It is to be met mainly
by the citizen soldiers—the volunteer sol
dier. We have, in the regular army, of
ficered as it is and filled with the type of
enlisted men we h'ad in it, an army which
I firmly believe, for Its size, is unequaled
In the civilized world and) I am sure that
I can challenge the most generous support
from the national guard for the regular
army of the United States'. (Applause).
But that army Is, and of necessity must be,
so small that in the event of serious trou
ble in the future, the great bulk of our
troops must come from the ranks of the
people themselves and in forming those
regiments the good done by the presence

what is expected of them. They train
others to do the work that is needled. And,
another thing, ladies and gentlemen, the
same qualities that make a man a suc
cess, that makes him do his duty decently
and honestly in a national guard regiment,
are fundamentally the qualities that he
needs to make him a good citizen in private
"Just as it is ir. the army, so it is in citi
zenship. If you are content to go through
life waiting for a chance to be a hero you
may wait and the chance may not come.
The way to be a good citizen is to do well
the ordiinary, every-day, humdrum work
that comes to citizenship. Don't you think
80? I am sure you do. The inan who
wants to wait until a battle comes is not
likely to be the good lighter and the
citizen who waits for heroic times is likely
to be a mighty bad one.
"I plead with you to do your duty as
national guardsmen and as citizens. Do
your duty day by day—the common, ordi
nary duties which, when dtone, make in
their sum, the citfzenship of the nation."
At 3:15 the presidential party re
turned to the Mayflower anil started
for home.

President Koosevelt In His Tour In
the Fall Does Not l'ropose to
Make Political Speeches.
Oyster Ray, X. Y., July 24.—Presi
dent Roosevelt is displeased somewhat
by a misinterpretation of his motives
in accepting invitations to meet and
speak to the people of several sections
of the country this fall. It has been
announced in some places that Mr.
Roosevelt is to make a campaign, par
ticularly in New York, with the idea
of offsetting any aggressive opposition
to his political views. It can be said
that he has no such intention. Such in
vitations to speak as he has accepted
have come from people representing
all shades of political opinion. While
his addresses will be along republican
lines, so far as they may relate to pol
itics, they will not be political

The lower Missouri and upper Missis

Missouri and Illinois, the condition of
the crop in Iowa being fairly good on
well tilled uplands, but great damage has
resulted from floods on the river bottoms
of the sc uthern and eastern portions of
that state and In northern Illinois. High
ly favorable reports are received from
Nebraska, Kansas, and the greater part
of Missouri and Illinois, and a decided
improvement in the condition of the
crop in the Ohio valley is indicated.
Spring wheat has advanced favorably
In the principal spring wheat states, but
has sustained injury in scattered local

Oat harvest is finished In the southern
states and is in progress in the central
valleys, and while lodging is extensively
reported from the Ohio, upper Mississii
