THIRTEEN ORIGINAL STATES REPRESENTED President Calls on the People to Be Truly Patriotic Panama Tolls, Mexican Problem and Big Business Touched On Name of United States Should Be Kept Unsullied Obligations Should Be Bravely Met. Philadelphia, Pa.. July 4. Presi dent Wilson arrived here this morn ing to attend the big national Inde pendence day celebration arranged by Philadelphia to commemorate the 138th anniversary of the signing of the declaration of independence. The celebration in Philadelphia this year was on a wider scale than any .that has taken place here Bince 187fi, when the one hundredth anniversary of the adoption of the celebration of independence was observed. The. patriotic exercises were held in Independence Square, close to the room where the declaration of inde pendence was signed and were begun before the president arrived. So far as the records go, President Wilson is the first president of the i United States who has come to the cradle of liberty on the nation's na tal day. The thirteen original states were represented at the exercises ei ther by their governors or other rep resentatives of the state governments. President Wilson was greeted by a shrill chorus of factory whistles from all parts of Philadelphia a6 he entered the square In front of his torlc Independence hall Original States Represented. In attendance at the celebration were members of congress and gov ernors or representatives of the gov ernors of the original thirteen states and delegations from nearly every pa triotic organization In the country. The president occupied a chair used by John Hancock and before him was the table on which the declaration of independence was signed. A pitcher once u6ed by George Washington cou talned his ice water. Lines of sailors, marines and sol diers occupied the space in front of the platform and beyond tbem stretched a huge crowd drawn from many partB of the nation. On the presidents arrival at tbe Broad street station, he was welcom ed by a delegation of citizens and by the First City troops of Philadelphia, which acted as his guard of honor during the drive to Independence square, a mile distant Philadelphia, July 4.

"And 1 am might;- glad to stay there and stiek by them," he added. Duty of People. Touching on business conditions of the country, President Wilson said a great many allegations of facts were being made, but that a great many f of these facts do not tally with each other "Are these men trying to v' , strvr their country or something smaller than their country" the pres ident asked. "If they love America and there Is anything wrong. It Is their business to put their hands to the task and set It right." Eighty-five per cent of tbe Mexi can people, the president said, in touchine on Mexico, never have had a right to have a "look in" on their government or how the other 15 per cent were running it. "I know the American people have a heart that beats for them just as it beats for other millions," Mr Vil6on contin ued. "I hear a great deal about the property loss In Mexico, and I regret that with all my heart, but back of it all Is a struggling people. Let us not forget that struggle, in watch ing what Is going on In front" "I would be ashamed of the flag if we did anything outside this country which we would not do in it." the president declared. Panama Tolls Obligation. Speaking on Panama tolls, the pres ident said the treaty with England might be a mistake, but Its meaning cannot be mistaken, and he believed in keeping the nation s obligations. He believed In keeping the name of the United States unquestioned and unsullied. Before the president got his speech well under way, the crowd surged forward in such confusion that a pan ic was threatened Two companies of marines and sailors stood before the speaker's stand and Mr. Wilson was forced to stop several times, but finally got the crowd under control. While the president was waiting to speak, Mrs. Smith, mother of one of the first sailors killed at Vera Cruz, greeted him. Mr. Wilson told her she should be proud of her son and shook her warmly by the hand. CHICAGO MEN TO VISITPRES1DENT Committee of Business Lead ers to Represent City in White House Conferences.

Star valley i6 quite a potato country, says the merchant Mr. Call states that Afton was visit ed this season by quite a disastrous fire, the large creamery of the Bur ton Brothers having been burned to the ground. It is now being rebuilt at a cost of $30,000.

Brown's body was found hanging In ! a tree and Call's body was quartered and left in the sagebrush to 1 d"- I voured by coyotes. The story of the I murder, as told in Fillmore, is that Call was among the bravest men in the southern country and feared by the Indians, while Brown was known j among the Indians as a pacifier and jwas highly respected by Blackhawk and his men. When the Indians came I upon Brown and Call, they talked with Brown and told him that they i did not want to kill him but that they were after c all's scalp. Brown re i piled that if one were to die. both would go together and that they would fight to the last Then the as sault began and every inch of the ground was fought until the ammuni tion of the two white men was ex hausted The Indians afterward told how Brown was killed first and that I Call drew his durk and fought hand to hand with them until he was fl nally ovpreoine. In deference to Brown, his body was hung in a tree. ! but Call's body was left on the ground. Some of the young men of Fill more followed this band of Indians 'a number of days and succeeded in j capturing and killing a number of the bravps. rn PORTUGUESE ON THEIR W TO POINTS WES!
