Progressive Party Will Not
Amalgamate Nor Affiliate
With Either of Old
Lincoln's Birthday Observed
Generally Throughout the
United States
WCW YORK. Feb. 12. —Former Presi
dent Roosevelt made his first public
appearance in the councils of the pro
gressive party for many weeks tonight,
at the dinner of the National Progress
ive club, to say that so far as he was
concerned, there would be no com
promise, no amalgamation, no yielding
in the fight for the party.
"The progressive party." said he. "will
amalgamate with neither of the two
old parties. bo.th of which are boss
controlled and privilege ridden. Wβ
believe that in each of these, however,
there are hundreds of thousands of
good, honest men and women who are
progressives. The only place for them
is in our party. Wβ will welcome them
and we will treat them an an exact
equality with ourselves, paying not the
slightest heed to whether they formerly
were republicans or democrats. We
are all progressives together and oure
Is the only party competent to mold
aright the future of this mighty re
Colonel Rooeevelt declared the
decision of the supreme court of Idaho
was "an even greater blot on the Amer
ican judiciary than the Dred Scott de
cision itself," and added that "no an
archist ever can or ever will hurt the
coutts as they are hurt by such action
as this of the highest court of the state
of Tdaho." Such a derision, he asserted,
"shows the need of the power of popu
lar recall of the judiciary."
"Abraham Lincoln was no less guilty
than the three men whom the supreme
court of the state of Idaho Imprisoned
for contempt because they criticised,
in less severe language than Lincoln,
a decision as indefensible from every
standpoint of law and justice and pop
ular rights.
"This decision by the highest state
court, which within its own limits is
an even graver offense against justice
and decency, and an even greater blot
on the American Judiciary than the
Dred Scott decision itself. The reac
tionary supreme court of Idaho has
played into the hands of the repub
lican machine, of which it was itself
a part, precisely as Justice Taney and
the majority of the supreme court of
the nation in 1857 played into the
hands of Presidents Pierce and Bu
chanan and the reactionary organiza
tion of which he and they were parts.
"In Idaho the result was as grave
a miscarriage of justice at the elec
tion as already occurred at the nom
inating convention, and the court be
came the most potent instrument in
this denial of justice. Thle decision I
hold to have been an outrage upon the
people of Idaho, and not merely upon
them, but upon the people of all the
United States, for any interference
with the right of an American in any
state to cast his vote and have it
counted for the president of his choice
Iβ an offense against the Americans of
all the states.
"But the court did not stop here.
There was In Idaho a newspaper which
fearlessly and in entirely proper man
ner condemned the court for this out
rage. The editor and publisher of
that paper, and another man con
nected with them, have been thrown
Into jail and fined, heavily for con
tempt by the court. The court, in Its
opinion, has cited the numerous dyna
mite outrages and the like that have
occurred as justifying their action. No
more extraordinary plea was ever made.
I yield to no man in the horror I feel
for the anarchists and for all other
criminals who do murder, whetheu by
dynamite or in any other fashion.*
"But the damage they do, thougn
great, is by no means as great to the
cause of law and order as is that done
by a decision such as this, and no
anarchist ever can or ever will hurt
the courts as they are hurt by such
action as this of the highest court *of
the state of Idaho. Remember that
if the position of the Idaho court in
punishing its critics for contempt Is
proper, then Abraham Lincoln could
have been jailed and fined for his words
about the supreme court of the United
States in connection with the Dred
Scott decision.
"A case like that in Idaho shows
the need of the power of popular
recall of the judiciary, a need which
I believe could probably best be met
by having the Judges appointed or
elected for life, but subject on pe
tition to recall by popular vote every
two years."
SPRINGFIELD, lIL, Feb. 12.—Count
yon Bernstorff, German ambassador to
the United States, was guest of honor
at the banquet given by the Lincoln
Centennial association tonight. "Abra
ham Lincoln as the Germans Regarded
Him" was the subject of his address.
Count yon Bernstorff declared Lin
coln's courage and his "big heart,"
whose every throb was for the whole
people, strongly appealed to the Ger
man sentiment. He was born a leader,
in truth.
Referring to Lincoln's courage when
war drew near, the speaker said:
"He did not indulge in the delusion
that the union could be maintained or
restored without a conflict of arms.
Although he abhorred war for any pur
pose, the firmness of his moral courage
enabled him to take the great respon
sibility of leading the nation into a
■war for union and for freedom and
through weary years of alternating
si»ccess and disaster. He did not waver
for a moment when many anti-coercion
meetings were held and a cry for peace
at any price arose on all sides."
Count yon Bernstorff quoted Lincoln
to emphasize his argument that the
fate of civilization in this country was
involved in the issue of the contest. ■
"The craving of the soul of the Ger
man nation for unity," he declared, "is
the last but not the least reason I
should mention , which Influenced our
people in their sympathy with Abra
ham Lincoln and his policy."

with which his biography Is rife.
Every child In the public schools

of the day was that in Lincoln school.
At the other schools exercises were
held in the morning. Veterans in the
Lincoln. Meade, Garfleld and Thomas
posts, G. A. R., visited the schools by
committees. They all joined at Lin
coln school *t 1 o'clock.
First an exhibition drill was given
by the Lincoln School battalion. Two
companies, one of girls and one of
boys, marched through military evolu
tions in the yard of the school before
the G. A. R. veterans. A concert by
the municipal band also was held.
The exercises, the most impressive
of the day ever held in San Francisco,
then commenced in the school audi
torium. The school children sang, and
orators told of the virtues of Lincoln.
Old tunes which rang out in the
camps near Mason and, Dixon line in
the days of 1861 to 18«5 were played
by the band.
The color,guard of Lincoln post. G.
A. R., was there In the old uniforms

Samuel M. Shortridge was the ora
tor. He made a most impressive ad
dress, directed to the children. Anec
dotes of Lincoln were frequent in his
talk, and in telling of the life and mor
als of Lincoln he well entertained the
children. He left a deep impression
of the character of Lincoln.
"Lincoln was born in poverty and
obscurity," he said, "but he died worth
more than any other man in the world
—he had the love of the world.
"He hated sin, but did not hate the
sinner. Hfs heart was big enough to
hold all men, good and bad alike. He
was a true man; a kind man; a patriotic
man; a cafe man.
"He guided the nation through dark
waters until it was anchored in the
harbor & peace and victory. Then he
was killed by a wicked man.
"Lincoln was a great and glorious
man. He loved man and served God."
Rev. J. P. McQuaide delivered the
lrfvccation, and W. W. Stone, principal
of the school and a civil war veteran,
acted as chairman of the exercises.
Secretary Edward Rainey spoke
briefly in behalf of Mayor Rolph.
Dr. A. A. d'Ancona, president of the
board of education, spoke on "The
Children and the State." John A. Brit
ton, president of the Lincoln Grammar
association, told of the plans for a
J50.000 statue of Lincoln to be placed
in the civic center and of the cam
paign before the legislature to obtain
a state appropriation. Colonel James
E. Power of the board of education
talked on "The Future of This Re
Superintendent of Schools Roncovieri
talked about Lincoln.
"Among all the sons of men that have
contributed to progress, none is more
deeply loved and admired than Lincoln,
who served his country in its greatest
trial and died as his work was accom
plished," he said.
"Lincoln was a many sided man, ac
quainted with smiles and tears. He
was familiar with nature, with actual
things, with common facts. It was be
cause Lincoln was the most human of
human beings that he is loved as no
other man has ever been.
"Lincoln bore the burdens and sor
rows of a great people on his shoul
ders. Loftiness of soul, consecrated
purpose, broad and profound sympathy,
self-sacrificing endeavor, were the
characteristics of this 'man of sor
rows.' His fame steadily grows and
will grow year by year as the world
comes to understand more clearly his
wisdom and his humanity.
"To the people he gave his time, his
talents, his love, his life. Dire tragedy
took him from his people that the
country might call him savior for only
souls that have suffered are well loved.
Jealousy, misunderstandings, calumny
have all made way, and north and
south alike revere his name.
"The memory of his gentleness, his
patience, his firm faith and his great
and loving heart are the priceless her
itage of a united land. It is the
strongest, tenderest tie that binds all
hearts together now and holds all
states beneath one nation's flag."
A chorus of 80 school children was
led by Miss Estelle Carpenter, super
visor of music in public schools.
Lincoln's birthday exercises were held
last night at the Lincoln evening school,
Fillmore and Hermann streets, under
the direction of Principal Frank L.
Fenton and attended by the members

last night from his home at 1836 Alice
Mr. Crellin was 39 years of age and

social friends and acquaintances. He
was at one time connected with the
Central bank, of which his father, the

Congregational church last night.
Doctor Aked first spoke of Lincoln's
fame, declaring that he was no more
a hero of the, north than of the south,
of America than of the entire world.
"No nation has a monopoly of his
majesty." he said.
The greater part of the address wa*
given to an exposition of attempting
to understand the martyred president.
Doctor Aked said that it was possible
to understand a portion of the mind
of Gladstone or of Washington, but
that he doubted if any person under
stood Lincoln; even if Lincoln under
stood himself. He described Lincoln
as born below the level of respectable
poverty, son of a shiftless father,
struggling through childhood with
hardship and proving a failure in busi
ness, war, professional life and poli
tics. He recounted Lincoln's failures
as a candidate and then pointed out

Giving still further initiative to one
of the largest business enterprises of
San Francisco, the Gunst and Esberg
interests of San Francisco and the
Wertheim & Co. interest 3of New York
have come together and formed a $25.
--000,000 corporation that will be one of
the most formidable competitors of the
United Cigar company, otherwise the
American Tobacco company.
The combination of Pacific and At
lantic coast capital was effected in
New York yesterday. The result of
weeks of conference between several
independent cigar companies, including ,
the immense concerns mentioned,
means that the so called tobacco trust
has a competitor that will give it a
good commercial run for its money.
San Francisco will be benefited by
the combination and, instead of its big
cigar and other tobacco Interests being
affected adversely by the combine, it

7721 Semi-Princess Dress for Mist**
and Small Women, 16 to IS year*.
Here is a charming little frock that
includes many of the season's smartest
features, and yet is exceedingly simple
to make. The sleeves are cut with the
blouse, but there are shoulder seams
upon which both blouse and sleeves are
shirred. These sleeves are short and
the V-shaped neck is finished with an
exceedingly pretty bertha. The skirt
is cut in only two pieces. The right
side is draped at both front and back,
and the left side is plain and is lapped
upon the right. At the lower *dge the
skirt can be finished with either curved
or straight edges. In the illustration
charmeuse is trimmed with lace, but all
the soft, pretty materials of the kind
are appropriate. Crepe de chine,
crepe meteor, mftssaline or the pretty
mulls and tissues would be lovely made
in this way.
Fob the 16 year size the dress will
require 5 yards of material 27,
yards 36 or 3 yards 44 inches wide with
2 a & yards of lace 6'i inches wide for
the bertha.
The pattern 7721 is cut in sizes for
girls of Iβ and IS years. It will Nβ
