SAVANNAH, Ga., Dec. 17.—The recep
tion of President McKinley und members
of his cabinet by tlie people of Savannah
has today more than equaled iv hospitality
and completeness of arrangement any pre
vious experiences which have marked the
presidential trip in the south. The party
arrived from Montgomery at 11 a. in., re
viewed 10,000 troops stationed around Sa
vannah, took a trip <lown the Savannah riv
er nnd was entertained this evening at a
grand banquet tendered hy the chamber of
commerce and association of citizens.
The enthusiasm of the citizens and the
10,000 persona who, it is estimated came to
the city from the surrounding Country to
greet the president, was fully equal to the
demonstrations which have distinguished
the trip In other cities.
At the banquet tonight, in the De Soto
Hotel, whore the presidential party is stay
ing, President McKinley, amid frequent np
pla Use, addressed an audience. In the course
of his speech he said: "There is cause for,
congratulation that with the grave problem
before us, growing out of the war with Spain,
we arc free from any divisions at home.
"Our financial and revenue policies can
not lie changed for ut least four years and
whatever legislation may be had affecting
them during that period will be to improve
nnd strengthen, not destroy tlicni. The pub-'
lie mind, therefore, reposes in reasonable
security, while business will proceed with
out apprehension of serious and sudden
changes so disturbing to the commercial
World nnd so distracting to the business man.
"Tlie country is free lo consider and dis
cuss new questions which arc Immediately
before us, unbiased by party or political al
liances. These new questions arc to be
fought out and wrought out, not in a spirit
of partisanship, but in a. spirit of patriotism,
not for the temporary advantage to one
party or the other, but for the lasting ad
vantage of the country.
"We have entered upon new paths. We
nre treading in an unexplored Held which
will test our wisdom ami statesmanship!
The chief consideration is one of duty; our
actions must be controlled by it. No settle
ment is admissible which will not preserve
our honor and promote the best interests of
oil concerned. Willi a united country and
the gathered wisdom of all the people, seek
ing only the right, inspired only by high
purposes, moved only by duty and humanity,
We cannot err. We may be baffled or de
terred, and often discouraged, but tinal suc
cess in a cause which is altogether unselfish
nnd humanitarian can only be deterred, not
'"If, following the clear precepts of duty,
territory falls to us, and the welfare of an
alien people requires our guidance nnd pro
tection when will we shrink from the re
sponsibility, grave though it may be? Can
We leave those people, who by tbe fortunes
of war and our own acts, are helpless and
Without government, to tbaos and anarchy,
after we have destroyed the only govern
ment they have had? After destroying their
government it is the duty of the American
government to provide for them a better
one. Shall we distrust ourselves, shall we
proclaim lo the world our inability to give
Kindly greeting to oppressed peoples, whose
future, by the victories of war, is confided
to us? Wo may wish it were otherwise, but
who will question our duly now?
"It is not a question of keeping the islajids
of the east, but of leaving thetn. Dewey
snd Merritt took flicm and the country in
stantly and Universally applauded. Could
We have brought Dewey away witliout uni
versal condemnation at any time from the
Ist of Mny, the day of his brilliant victory,
which thrilled the world with its bold
ness nnd heroism? Was it right to order
Dewey to go to Manila and capture or de
stroy the Spanish fleet and dispatch Merritt
and his army to reinforce him? It it were
duty to send them there and duty required
them to remain there, it was their orear duty
to annihilate the fleet, take the city of
Mnnila and destroy the Spanish sovereignty
in the archipelago. Having done all llhat in
the line of duty, is there any less duty to
remalin there and give to the iiiihabit'ant.s pro
tection and also our guidance to a better gov
erwmwt, which will secure to them peace
nnd order and Security in their life nnd
property and in the pursuit of happiness.?
Are we unable to do this? Are we to sit
down in our isolntiion are! recognize no obli
gation to a struggling people, whose present
conditions we have contributed to make?
I would rather have the confidence of the
poet Bryant when he exclaimed:
"Thou, my country, thou shalt never fail;
Seas and stormy air
Are the wiile barriers of thy border, where,
Among thy gallant sons that guard thee
Thou laughest at thine enemies. Who shall
then declare
The date of thy deep-founded strength, or
How happy In thy lap the sons of men
shall dwell?
"My fellow citizens, whatever eovo.na.nts
duty has made for us in the year 1898 we
must keep."
Secretary Cage followed the president, re
plying to tlile toast of "Commerce." Secre
tary Gage solid:
"It is evident that if yesterday we wero
insular, tcmiort'ow we must be interna
tional, and commerce is the agency t'hnough
which our destiny is to be accumplislhrd.
"A careful writer has declared: 'it may
almost be held that the hope of oomnuir
cial garliu has done nearly as much for the
cause of truth ns even tlie love of truth,'
"It Is evident that with the enormously
incrcaae.d energy derived through machinery
nnd invention the production of a highly
civilised state in many, if not most, of its
articles of manufacture will ultiinnltely ex
ceed the needs, if not the power to consume,
of its people. Capital, tending to incrpase
economy in distribution and exchange it
confined to geographical limits, will aggra
vate the tendeiney toward local over-pnoduc
i mn. New agencies, like factories, mills and
' lilroods, will be crenled, nnd these trill
liffcely strive to get a foothold in n market
nll-enidy over-supplied. Under such >on
•:',«;•<' 1 conditions' profits must diminish,
••■igeu foil arid capitol go without reword.
The rmly rrlief is a widening out of what in
another sense has been culled the sphere ot
influence. When our factories ahull turn
out twice er thrice the quantity of things
our people, can UM, the Pimps where thcwi
made will hove to close up or other
mnrkets will have to be found where the*.?
things may be exchanged for things that
can be uscid by us. If eight millions of peo
pie in the southern seas, so rude as not to
use bedsteads and so poor as not to be able
ro buy them, can by the stimulating influ
ence of civilizatiom bo brought to
desire and to acquire bottU, by
so much our problem is solved. It is the
function of commerce to aid in bringing
thoso things about, but commerce alone
cannot do it. Good government, true estab
lishment of peace, the dissemination of edu
cation, the encouragement of industry, the
protection of tbe weak, in a ward, the ele
vation of races lowor in the ecalc ol civiliza
tion until they feel new wants ond find the
ability to supply them in fair exchange for
the fruits of their own peculinr Soil, climate
or racial characteristics —these are the
foundaticin.s on whiiih n lasting, growing
commerce can be established.
"By the ordering of fate, or a providence
little suspected by us, we of this land have
been pushed forward, as it were, against nil
our traditions, to face new responsibilities,
new duties and new opportunities. Shall we
restrain ourselves and remain insular or
shall we accept the challenge that destiny
brings us?
"If, with due humility, we shall try to
find our way to the larger life events hnve
brought us; if with an honest regardfor the
duties which the great and strong owe to
the weak and helpless, we take up what may
seem at present an unprofitable burden, we
shall, I believe, in the fullness of lime, find
out that in our larger relations and in our
extended commerce, philanthropy and five
per cent mny be made to go together."
Secretary Allger responded to "The

toast "The Prees."
His address was mainly a recital of inci
dents of the party's trip through the south.
Secretary Long spoke of "The Navy."
Secretary Wilson responded to the toast
'The toast "Woman" brought out a chival
rous tribute from General Wheeler, which,
though very brief, aroused the southern au
dience to intense enthusiasm.
When the presidential train reached Sa
rannah at 11 oclock this morning the Geor
gia hussars, resplendent with silver facings,
were drawn up to receive the president, aud
a snlule was tired with guns captured at
Vorktown and presented to Savannah by
George Washington.
In twenty-seVen carriages, drawn by
white horses, the presidential party Waa
drawn through the streets, black with
cheering thousands, to the city parade
grounds, where a stand had been erected.
Ten thousand troops' were drawn up op
posite win re the president and the members
of the cabinet stood. On the outskirts
of the parade ground, held back by ten
tries, about 10,000 sightseers pressed for
ward to get a glimpse of the soldiers. Mrs,
McKinley remained in a carriage near the
reviewing stand. In the shadow of a tow
ering monument to the Confederate dead
lay the left of the long line of troops'. Major
General Keifer, in command, gave the sig
nal for the march to commence. A sheet
of'steel Hashed out against the green back
ground of trees' as the bayonets of the men
rose to their shoulders', and the line began
to form.
Alter passing the president, beside whom
stood Major Generals Wheeler, Shafter and
Lawton, each colonel came on the stand
and Witnessed the niareh past of his own
regiment. The sight was grand.
Brigadier General Whealon, commanding
the First division of the Seventh corps, fol
lowed General Keifer. Behind him came
the following infantry regiments: Second
South Carolina, Ninth Illinois, Fourth Illi
nois, Third Georgia, Third Nebraska, First
Texas', Forty-ninth lowa and Sixth Mis
souri. ,
Then, with their coats on, the 'red flaps
turned back, came the Second artillery,
regulars, the First Maine battalion of
heavy artillery, and Light Batteries F, ot
the Second, C and F of the Third, D of the
fourth nnd D of the Fifth (regular) artil
lery. Every regiment was headed by-rts
band. The men marched in splendid align
ment, and looked in excellent condition.
The president stood bareheaded, acknowl
edging salDtes, while tlie crowd cheered, as
the companies' marched by. Colonel
Bryan's late regjhnent, the Third Nebraska,
attracted particular attention.
ln a little over an hour the troops had
completed the review", and the presidential
party drove off to the river front. The
streets were lined with people, who cheered
At 2 oclock the president boarded the
steam pilot boat J. H. Estill and proceeded
down the Savannah river for about ten
miles. Salutes were fired from wharves,
every ship was gaily strung with bunting
and the crews yelled lustily as the presi
dential steamer sped by. Whistles screeched,
Hags flipped and, until tbe outskirts of the
city were reached, the river bonk was dotted
with groups, mostly colored, who sent cheer
after ohecr over the water for President Mc-
Kinley. The object of all this enthusiasm
sloo 1 on the starboard side of the pilot boat
waving his handkerchief or hat to those on
shore and on the vessels. About nine miles
out the Estill passed the United States trans
port Chester with the Fourth Virginia regi
ment aboard, bound for Hnviina. She hod
been held from going to sea by a heavy
morning fog, which now hod disappeared.
The Virginia troops crowded to the bul
warks of the Chester, swarmed in her rig
ging nnd, waving their Campaign hats,
cheered the little pilot boat to the echo. The
president .jumped up on the rail of the Estill
and, holding on to a shroud, waved bock
his acknowledgements to the troops. The
regimental bond on boord the Chester played
"Yankee Doodle," followed by "Dixie/ 1 and
o i both vessels there ensued such a scene of
enthusiasm as had seldom been witnessed
in this state.
Luncheon was served on boord the Estill
and nt 4:30 oclock the presidential party dis
embarked and was driven to the hotel,
where a rest was taken until the banquet
Cleaning White Painted Woodwork
Ordinary white painted woodwork can be
kept in order by washing with a cloth
dipped in warm, soapy water. A scrubbing
brush should never be u>ed, neither should
the water be very hot. The scrubbing nnlst
all be done up and down, as> rubbing across
or in a semicircular way, ai many cleaners
do, will leave streaks upon the surface. A
clean soft cloth must be used at once to rub
off the water used in washing. I am told
that Where the polish is very high on the
woodwork —that is, I fancy, the enameled
linish—lukewarm milk and white soap are
the best mediums, for cleaning and preserv
ing the polish.—Harper's liozar.

Follows the Flag Raising in Havana
HAVANA, Dec. 17,—A riot occurared at
Cerro, a suburb of Havana, at 7:30 tonight.
A number of shots were fired. One man is
reported to have been killed and five wound
ed. Tbe residents' of Cerro, supposing that
the Spaniards had officially evacuated the
suburb, raised Cuban and American flags
over a number of buildings. Crackers were
fired and speeches were made on street cor
ners', and these rejoicings on the part of the
Cubans led to the riot. According to the
account of the affair given by the Spaniards
the riot was the result of a tavern brawl.
Marion Britt of Jacksonville. Fla., of
the Second Illinois regiment, who was
driving a mule wagon through Cerro at the
time of the allray, was struck by a bullet
in the right arm. He was brought to the
Inp.leterre hotel. Senor Fernandez de
Castro, civil governor of Havana, hasi in
formed General Greene that the offenders
will be severely punished. Senor Castro
says he saw no Spanish soldiers at the scene
of the affray.,
At !):45 this - evening General Ltt and Gen
eral Greene were in conference with the
Spanish officials.
How Do They Get Into the New Fluffy
Just how the women get into their collars
these days is a. puzzle to the men. Not the
stiff linen collar, the exact counterparts of
their own, is it that occupies their attentfon,
but the soft fluffy stocks of silk and lace
and chiffon, with the frilled or fulled fronts
and revers. They are dainty and dressy
and show not a sign of an end beneath the
gathers and puffs. They are being made in
an endless variety of style now. The most
favored ones are made of mousseline de
soie or liberty silk, the collar proper very
full, with shirtings at intervals of an inch
or so running up and down, instead of
lengthwise, as they were a short time ago.
The shillings vary in width toward the
back, where they become very deep, the
shirred part forming frills that lie in tiny
billows about a woman's neck, entirely do
ing away with the severe effect so many
stocks produce. Then there is the fulled part
that extends almost to the waist line, with
the broad revers that arc stitched to each
side of the fulled piece, which makes the
whole resemble a new front for a blouse.
The levers are elaborately done in lace,
broad or narrow, according to the purse or
the desire olthe wearer. Some of the fulled
extensions are but seven inches long, with
revers the same, and end in a broad, flaring
sailor knot, all lace edged and usually made
of the mousseline de soie. These collarettes
are very pretty and neat, and ns they ore all
In one piece do not show the opening, be
cause the only one is at the back, where the
collar joins. Many women use them to
freshen up old frocks, and they nre being
used for school girls who get tired wearing
the some things, arid two or three collarettes
tt«ed as "fronts" produce the appearance of
two or three new frocks.
Gloomy Outlook Unless a Change Is
Under the present conditions, when the
seal otters are destroyed, the fur seal herd
exterminated, the native tribes starved to
death, the salmon river depopulated, the
timber cut and the placer gold,fields worked
out, Alaska is to be thrown away like a
sucked orange. There is no other possible
end, if we continue as we have begun. We
are "not in Alaska for our health," and
when we can no longer exploit it we may as
well abandon it.
Hut it may be argued that it will be a
very costly thing to foster all Alaska's wide
spread resources- and to give good govern
ment to all her scattered villages and posts.
Furthermore, all this outlay is repaid only
by the enrichment of private corporations,
who, with tbe exception of the fur seal les
sees, pay no tribute to the government.
Doubtless this is true. Government is a
costly thing and its benefits are unequally
distributed. Uut the cost would be less if
we should treat other resources ns we have
treated the fur seal. To lease the salmon
rivers and to protect the lessees in their
rights would be to insure a steady and large
income to the government, with greater
profit to the salmon canneries than comes
with the present confusion and industrial
No single person or bureau is responsible
for A\ska. The treasury department looks
after the charting of its coasts, the care of
its animal life, the prohibition of intoxicat
ing liquors, the control of the fishing indus
tries and the patrol of its coasts. The in-
vestigation of its fisheries and marine ani
mals is the duty of the United States fish
commission. The army has in Alaska cer
tain ill-defined duties, which have been
worked out mainly in a futile and needless
relief expedition, with an opera boufie ac
companiment of dehorned reindeer. The
legal proceedings within the territory are
governed by the statutes of Oregon, unless
otherwise ordered. The department of
justice has a few representatives scattered
over a vast territory, whose duty it is to
enforce these statutes, chiefly through the
farce of jury trials. The land in general is
under control of the department of the in
terior. The bureau of education has an
agent in charge of certain schools, while the
president ofthe United States linds his rep
resentative in his appointee, the governor
of the territory. This office of governor car
ries large duties and small powers. There
are many interests under the governor's
supervision, but he can do little more for
them than to serve as a means of communi
cation between some of them and Washing
The virtual ruler of Alaska is the secretary
of the treasury. Uut in his hands, however,
excellent his intentions, good government
is in large degree unattainable by lack ol
[jowcr. Important matters must await the
decision of congress. The wisest plans fail
for lack of force to carry them out. 'i*,e
right man to go on difficult errands is not
at hand, or, if he were, there is no means
to send him. In the division of labor which
is necessary in great departments of gov
ernments, the affairs of Alaska, with those
of the custom service-in general, are assigned
to one of the assistant secretaries. Of his
duties Alaskan affairs form but a very Small
pnrt, and this part is often again assigned to
some one of the subordinate clerks.—Atlan

Ordered a Kailroad Train Held and It

A local hanker of a small lowa town was
called suddenly to a larger town at consider
able of a distance to Intercept his eloping
daughter, who had been visiting there. In
order to get there that day he would have to
change cars at Dcs Moines, and the train

table, be learned that the train lie would be
obliged to board reached Dcs Moines just
fifteen minutes after the train for 11 , bis

old adage of his cashier, "He who works the
greatest bluff wins," he sent the following
message to the Dcs Moines train officials:
"Hold the 2:30 train until 1 arrive.
"O.fi. BLANK."
Not knowing but that (f. G. Blank was in
some way highly connected with the road,
and fearing to incur his displeasure, the
"bluff" worked. When he stepped off the
train at Dcs Moines a man hurried toward
him, and, lifting his hot respectfully, in
quired: "Are you Mr. Blank?
