That It is Their Duty to Rule

London May 31 Theodore Roose
velt was today presented with the
freedom of iho city of London and lie
> Hcceplod the honor with a literalism
that led him into a frankness of
speech which created a sensation in
old Guild Hall
As the former head of a country I
that once paid tribute to Great Brit
ain the American statesman gave the
motherland some bold advice as to her I
duly toward her most troublesome
dependency III Africa It was fr
I Roosevelt said either right or npt
right for Great Britain to be in
l Egypt and establish order there If I
v It was not right aho should get out
L Mr Roosevelt eulogized British rule
t in Uganda and the Soudan lie de
j dared that Great Britain had given i
ISgypt the best government that that
country had had in 2000 years But
I In certain vital points It had erred
Timidity and sentimentality ho said
might cause more harm than viol
I once and injustice
Sentimentality he added is the
most broken reed on which righteous
ness can lean
Mr Roosevelt denounced the nation
allst party of Egypt as neither dcsir
f OilS nor capable of guaranteeing pri 1
f mary Justice It was trying to bring
murderous chaos on the land I
Some nations said the former pres
ident must govern FgypL He hopes 1
> and believes that the English would I
E decide that Uio duty was theirs I
P As a whole the speech constituted
I the most forcible expression on for l
oign topics that the distinguished vis I
itor has made during his European
r tour He dealt principally with tho I
British policy In Egypt which is to
day oneoC the most discussed of
Great Britain colonial questions
His outspoken views sent clthrll1 I
through the 4000 nffditbrs whichIs
HUoly to be felt outside tho walls of
thR ancient council hall
GiillS Hall hits been the scene of
many stirring events since its erec
tion early In the fifteenth century
It was there that the trials of Anne
Askewthe Earl of Surrey and LadY
Jane Grey were held but no audience
of modern times has listened more In
tentlY to the proceedings therein than
did todays to the former president
of the United States
Mr Roosevelt was driven in stab I
from Ambassador Reids home to I
Guild Hall but the weather was not
propitious and comparatively few per
sons witnessed the procession Rain
fell through the morning and only a
few hundred persons wore gathered
In the vicinity of Dorchester House to
witness the departure or In King
street when Mr Roosevelt arrived
at the hall He occupied the lord I
mayors coach and this was followed I
by the coaches of the sheriffs who
wore their uniforms I I
The audience included many Amer
ican and English business men bo
sides officials of tho clly Tho latter I
wore In uniform and occupied soats 1
f on the platform to which Mr Roosc
volt was escorted I
I r The parchment conveying to Mr
t Roosevelt tho freedom of the city
was contained in a beautiful gold cas
Itel The presentation was made by
Sir Joseph Cockfleld Ulnsdalc the
city chamberlain who extended his
hand to the cltjs giiCBt and spoke
brielly Sir Joseph dwelt particularly
on Great Britains friendship toward
the United Stales
t Following the exorcises Sir John
Knill the lord mayor entertained Mr
Roosevelt at a private luncheon at
which many prominent personages
were present
The casket presented lo Mr Roose I

It Is the custom In China to wear

is like that of the Annamese and tIm

day that threatened to break up his I
afternoons baseball game Johnsons I
manager George Little and Sig Hart I
who is assisting the negro In his
training work were the belligerents
The cause of the clash Is unknown
but It Is ascribed to a petty camp
squabble Llllle was covering first
base when Hart ran up to him and
l Little was heard to say You would
punch me in the eye would you i
Forthwith he swatted Sig on the jaw I
and as Hart dropped he tossed a small
boulder In his direction but mlKsod
Johnson arriving on a sprint leap
ed upon his manager and overpow
ered him Hart picked himself up
and returned to camp and Johnson
cut loose at Little with condemnatory
remarks anentlighting that Is not en

Tho champion Is rapidly rounding into

and ho has plenty of tlmcin which to
put on the finishing touches
I It now seems likely that Billy DC
lanoy will not take over the direc
I tion of Johnsons training until per
haps the killer part of the week
A report emanated from Johnsons
quarters last night to the effect lhat
peeved at James J CorhottH ro
niarlts concerning his courage the
negro champion would challenge Cor
holt to meet him In a boxing match
at any time prior to the date of the

Glenn L Cnrtiss Says the Sky Will Be Full
of Flying Machines Going 100 Miles
an HoupCities Could Be Wrecked
by the Use of Bombs
New York May 31The Curtiss
flight from Albany to Now York has
started anew the discussion as to the
possible availability of the aeroplane
as R means of offense In time of war
fare Glenn 11 Curtlss is an enthusi
astic believer in the aeroplane war
ship armed with dynamite and picric I
acid bombs for tho destruction of hos I
tile fleets fortifications and cities
All the groat battles or the future
will bo fought In the air declared
Army men are not so certain as to
the usefulness of the aeroplane In
time of war Most of the ofllcers sta
tioned at Governors Islpnd while
willing to admit that tho aeroplane
would be Invaluable for scouting pur
poses arc skeptical as to Us value in
offensive warfare I
In tho opinion of Brigadier General
Walter Howe commanding the depart
j ment of the cast tho aeroplane could
not be a dangerous factor In n hostile I
attack on New York Flying low
shrapnel would get It ho said while
flying high its bombs could do no
harmWe have made some experiments
with balloons and have found that
shrapnel can wreck them at certain
ranges What results would he ob
tained were aeroplanes used is an
other question If they wore operated
as high and as fast as Cufss flew
it Is probable that nothing at all
would happen to the aeroplane and if
the aeroplane tried to hurt us nt Its
dizzy altitude we would probably es I
cape unhurt too
Curtlss in a long statement given
out here today pictures the aeroplanc
and discusses the
as a war menace
nosrlblllty of tho destruction of Now
b a bombardment
York City or West Point by
bardment from a fleet of aeroplanes
It would be perfectly practical he
said to ilrop enough dyjiauilto or pic
rIc acid on a city like New York to de
sire it utterl Of course the speed
of a flying machine cannot be reduced
below 15 or 50 miles an hour a speed
necessary to keep It aloft So to hover

great height and thus got near enough
to the objective point to discharge

low lights and stealthy approchos
there would be
With muffled motors
nothing heard Half a
dozen machines could sneak up skimming
low down at nigh ana drop ox

enough to allow you to get away
