LA(!GE CROWDS HEAR MEMORIAL ADDRESS BY COLONEL HARVEY Richmond Citizens Gathered at the Coliseum to Do Honor to the Dead Heroes of the Civil War. ELOQUENT SPEAKER MAKES FINE EULOGY Soldier, Lawyer and States man from Illinois Delights Old Veterans General Ob servance in City. The : observance of Memorial day yesterday was more general than cus tomary and in addition to the large number who attended the exercises at the coliseum in the afternoon, held under the auspices of the Sons of Vet erans, there were hundreds of others who went ' to the cemeteries or who visited friends in other places. Due homage was paid to the memory of the old soldiers by the merchants, who closed their establishments all day or .else for a part. . . Tne exercises at tne coliseum were , carried out as planned and included many musical numbers, which were rendered in a most pleasing manner. the drill by the children and the ad dress of Col. George Harvey, of Dan ville. Ind. : CoL Harvey was Introduced by Har ry E. Penny, who acted as master of ceremonies. Mr. Penny paid tribute to the soldiers and referred to the ap propriateness of such, celebrations and the decorating of the graves. CoL Harvey spoke as follows: "Ladies and Gentlemen: I was asked to talk to this people on this occasion by the a of V., I trust with the con sent and approval of the Grand Army or the Republic and Its auxiliaries. The Cons of Veterans are 'heirs of every battle flag by treason torn; heirs of ev ery sword that flashed for liberty and union and guardians by Inheritance for all that the Union Midler fought for and all he won. l.rThls order when first organised re presented the first generation of Un ion soldiers1 sons. The Inspiration for the order came from heredity. It was inspired by battle hymns of republic the songs our mothers sang In sooth ing us to sleep, and our fathers sang on the march and in their tents. With such history and such teaching is it at all wonderful that the Sons of Vet erans should ' be loyal and by their oaths "promise- to keep inviolate all that their fathers fought for and won? "TJhls day is set apart as a Memorial to our soldiers, living and dead. To our soldiers dead, we can only give our solemn pledge that the principles for which they fought and died are in delibly engraved upon the mind and heart of every loyal American citizen. "It is easy to voice complimentary sayings to these heroes, yet how bar ren are words to express our true ap preciation of their services and sacri fices. "To say that the soldiers of this re public are the greatest heroes on all the horison of the past would but inad equately express the American idea of these men.- .- f;t : nr-Jff: : "In a comunity like this, the early home of Morton, It would be ineffec tual to assume, standing here in the presence of this loyal assembly that that localities like this had wrapped themselves in the Insane desire - for wealth and had forgotten these heroes ,. of the nation. ..-:.'. "Who are they? The statesmen, the pioneer, the sturdy men of Iron who made it possible that labor and capi tal should join hands, and build up this great commonwealth and above all the men who had the courage and pa triotism sufficient to fight tor, and If need be to die for what they thought was right. It would seem to some that Memrolel day was designed for a holi day, that our people might rest from their labors, but we trust that such was not the legislative intent. While It must be admitted that such is the view taken by some yet the fact re mains that the majority of American citizens regard this day as sacred to our military heroes. Ingersoll said that the day was made sacred to our soldiers living and dead, that it set the star of hope above the cradle of the poor Oman's babe and knighted every son of toil. ; idui we enicr inrse ceremonies with loyal hearts, and due apprecia tion of the occasion. v "These ceremonies can not aid the dead. To the living it Is an establish ed fact that the peoples of nations are not ungrateful to their soldiers. As we strew flowers over the graves of - - - - m - a opr. iwaNn wuajr, u lurcver remiaas us that only the nations that honor their dead are able to keep their places among the great nations of the earth.

GOTHAM PLANS TO GREET R00SEVEL1 The Greatest "Home-coming" Since Return of the Prodigal Son. THOUSANDS OF VISITORS EVERY STATE IN THE UNION TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE CROWDS THAT WILL WELCOME THE EX-PRESIDENT. New York, May SI. As the time ap proaches for the return of cx-Presldent Roosevelt on Saturday morning, June 18, the plans for his welcome are as suming larger and larger dimensions and that the greeting will be national wide admits of no doubt. New York will be filled from river to river with citizens and guests, enormous thronga will crowd the line of march during the land parade and other crowds will swarm on the lower bay during the water demonstration. ' Distinguished visitors from every state In the union will be in attendance, delegates from organizations from all over the United States will be on hand, and scores of clubs and societies of New York city and vicinity will aid in making the for mer president's home coming an his toric event. Chairman R. A. C. Smith of the Har bor display committee states that near ly every available sea going craft has been chartered to meet at quarantine the Kalserin Auguste Victoria on which Col. Roosevelt will reach Am erica and that upwards of 100 boats will join in the procession from quar antine to the city. The boats, com prising steamships, private yachts and tugs will be gaily decorated and all will have bands aboard. The 300 mem bers of the citizens reception commit tee appointed by Mayor Gaynor will go down the bay early in the morning on the revenue cutter Androscoggin and meet the aKiserin at 9 o'clock as she drops anchor. Immediately Col. Roose velt will board the Androscoggin and the procession will start to New York. Passing; the Batterv the boata win proceed up North river hus-zinc the New Jersey shore to -a, stake-boat an-j cnorea at eoth street, and then return reaching the Battery at 11 o'clock. Here CoL , Roosevelt will set foot on his native soil for the first tme in a year and be officially welcomed by Mayor Gaynor, representing the City of New York. The, ceremony will take place on a raised stand and the princi pals wilV be surrounded by 6,000 dis tinguished guests including United States senators and representatives, members of the diplomatic corps at Washington, members of 'President Taft's cabinet, business men of nation al reputation, artists, llteratteurs, gov ernors of states, mayors of cities and many other persons of note. The republican club of the City of NeW York has chartered the big steam ship' Albany and will go to quarantine with fully 5,000 persons aboard. As she is as speedy as the fleet Kalserin, it is likely that she will proceed to Fire Is land to pick up the liner. The Roose velt Neighbors' association of Nas sau county, L. I.; will take part in the naval demonstration on the steam boat Nassau. The Nassau will - go down the bay with banners flying and bands playing, and it is needless to say, , with Colonel Roosevelt's neigh bors shouting themselves hoarse. They will wear hats alike, carry the ban ners they took to Washington at the time of .Roosevelt's inauguration, and wave small American flags. The Ham ilton club of Chicago, 600 enthusiasts from Philadelphia and delegations from Omaha. Washington, .Pittsburg, Buffalo and other cities have already engaged boats. The harbor will be policed by cutters in the revenue serv ice and speedy police craft, , The land parade will be spectacular In the extreme, although the march ing will be : confined to the mounted police, the police band, the Roosevelt Rough Riders escorting Mr. Roose velt, and the reception committee in carriages. The demonstration will be remarkable in that Instead of march ing the various organizations will be lined up along Fifth avenue from 8th street north , to 59th. , Each organiza tion will have a band and may throw an arch across the street. In reality the panders will review Mr. Roose velt, Instead of Mr. Roosevelt review ing them. All along the line decora tions will be thrown to the breeze un til the route will be an enormous rib bon of red,. white and blue, extending from Central park to the Battery. Mrv- Roosevelt's . plans following the reception have not been announced, and it is not known whether he will go to his home at Oyster Bay or remain in the city until the luncheon to be given him Thursday June 23 by the Roosevelt Rough Riders. Mrs. Roose velt has been invited bv the Danrhtem of the American Revolution to a lunch eon at Sherry's, where, if she accepts, she will review the parade from the windows of the famous restaurant.

NOTED VISITOR MADE "FREE MAN OF LONDON" High Officials of City and Na tion Do Honor to American Crowds Fight to Get View of Party. (American News Set -vice) London, May 31 With conventional pomp that turned the affair into a pageant, Theodore Roosevelt was to day presented with the freedom of the city of London and his visit to England formally began. Twelve hundred of the foremost per sons of London witnessed the cere monies at the Guild hall,, the guests invited including the Duke of Con naught, Prince Arthur of Connaught, Ambassador Whitelaw Reid and many well known Americans, both tourists and members of the colony here. ' Dull, drizzling weather prevailed, l.ut did not dampen the curiosity of Lou don. Along the streets of the ex-presl dent's route, as well as the other parts of the city, American flags were dis played in great numbers and hundreds of teddy bears were swung from poles, Vast crowds struggled to get sight of the former president, and so great was the crush that the police were com pelled to bar the street about the Guild hall precaution seldom taken save when royalty is the attraction. ' Though the death of King Edward caused the abandonment of some of the features he had planned before Mr, Roosevelt had actually arrived In England, the affair today was by no means ,a disappointment to the lovers of "the. spectacular. .. '. j Governed by the precedent of centur ies, the municipal authorities added the name of Theodore : Roosevelt to the roll of honorary freemen , of the city a roster which includes the names of Rodney Nelson, Wellington, Livingstone, Gladstone; Garibaldi, Dee Lesseps and C. S. Grant! : At five minutes before - noon Mr. Roosevelt left Dorchester House, the residence . of Amhbassador Reid. At his disposal was the gilded state coach of Lord Mayor Knlll a heavy vehicle, manned by flunkies and 'out riders, -gorgeous with gilt carving.'-. Before him, the escort of honor, rode Sheriffs Noel and Ralph; Slazenger in their state coaches, only, a trifle less gorgeous than the ; equipage . of the guest of the day. Before and behind clattered a squad ron ot mounted police. All along the route crowds were gathered and as Mr. Roosevelt, whirled by he was greeted by cheers. "Teddy," .London calls him, taking the cue from Paris, which refused to call him by his family name. ' The route lay through one of the most picturesque portions of London by way , of Park " Lane, Constitution Hill, Birdcage Walk; and the Embank ment to the Guildhall .on King street. About the hall was -drawn up5?! force of 1,500 policemen guarding the ropes stretched across the streets lead ing to the building. Beyond were mass ed thousands upon, thousands of Lon doners with a good sprinkling of Am ericans. As the carriage that bore the ex-president rolled up, a cheer - that lasted several minutes broke out. . Scarcely less Important than the con ferring of the freedom of the city was the lord mayor's luncheon at the Man sion House. Before the death of the late king, if had been determined to make this a -magnificent feast, but af ter Edward's demise the majority of the 85 Invitations that had been Issued were recalled, the plans being changed to make the luncheon private instead of a state affair. - This determination was a disappoint ment to those whose invitations are re called cabinet members, , past and present, leading Americans and all of the 233 , members of the . corporation and their ladies. At the luncheon, however, were Lord Cromer, Lord Strathcona. Lord Morley, Lord Desbrough, Lord Beauchamp, the bishop of London, Sir Edward Grey and John Burns. ' - The calling off of the state luncheon was in part made up, however; by the ceremonies of conferring the freedom of the city, which preceded the gath ering at the Mansion house. . . Throughout the day, In view of the national mourning for Edward, every effort was made to prevent ostenta tion. No semblance ot a military es cort for Mr. . Roosevelt was provided. Speeches were cut from the program wholesale, and the large sum recently voted by the city corporation, for the decoration of the streets about Guild hall waas not utilised. The only addresses made were those by the city chamberlain, the Rt, Hon. Sir J. C. Dimsdale, and Mr. Roose velt. r,The ceremony was preceded by the formal gathering of the court of, the common council. jm actual BRI RICHMOND.' IXD., TUESDAY EVENING, 'MAY 31, 1910.

The impending radical changes in the huge corporation were rumored o ngood authority at the recent meet ing and election in New York.

V ' The certificate t of freedom, an em bossed document couched in ' the phraseology of bygone times was hand ed to Mr. Roosevelt impressively aft er the chamberlain's speech. It was encased in a gold box of exquisite workmanship, done by the finest art ists of the goldsmiths and silversmiths company, to which organization .the task was entrusted months ago. With the presentation completed, the luncheon guests, proceeded quietly to the Mansion house. ' The precedent for entertaining Mr. Roosevelt was set in 1877 when Gen. Grant visited London. At that time no royalties were in vited to the Guild Hall, but ministers and high officials took part. Gen. Grant's speech is printed to day in some of , the , London papers. It was one of the shortest ever made at such a function.- H "I believe," he said "thatCbis honor is intended quite as much for the country which I have had the oppor tunity of serving a different capacit ies as for myself-and I am glad thai this is so, because I want to see the happiest relations existing not only.

COURT HESTRAII1S WORK Oil CROSSING Injunction Issued by Judge Fox Stops Construction Gang on South N Street. HEARING SET FOR JUNE 11 SOUTH SIDE RESIDENT8 WANT THE STREET OPENED TO AC COMMODATE NEW AUTOMATIC TOOL WORKS. While engaged in the construction of the proposed South N street cross ing over the C, d. & L- tracks. Town ship trustee James Howarth, who has the work in charge, was notified this morning that Judge Fox of the circuit court had eranted a temporary re straining order in favor of James P. Goodrich, receiver for the C, C. & I railway company. The petition for the restraining order was filed in the cir cuit court this morning by attorneys for the receiver and was directed against not only Mr. Howarth as trus tee of the township, but also against all members of the South Side Im provement association who had signed the petition asking that the crossing be constructed. The work will be delayed until June 11, at least, as this was the date set for the hearing of the arguments for making the injunction permanent and thereby cancelling the order of the county commissioners for the con struction of the crossing. It is said that the plaintiff in this action will file a remonstrance, with the county commissioners, setting forth his reas ons why the crossing should not be built : -,: . : V7r, The necessity of the crossing in the minds of the petitioners Is to the Na tional Automatic Tool Works, which will start operations in its new factory building in the Beallview addition within a few ' weeks. 1 The crossing would afford more direct communica tion between ' the factory, 'and other parts of the city. In December, when the construction work on the factory building was started, the members of the South Side Improvement Association drew up a petition for the opening of the street. Summons was obtained on the C, C. & L. receiver by means of publication, it is averred, but the com pany did not remonstrate because of an ' agreement between Henry C. Starr, acting as counsel for the road, and Perry J. Freeman, attorney for the petitioners. It is alleged that this agreement was to the effect that noth ing would be done in the matter until after the sale of the road by the re ceiver. However, the petitioners, it is al leged in the complaint, proceeded in the matter without consultation with their, attorney and at the March meet ing of the , county commissioners, viewers were appointed by the board. No remonstrance being filed against the construction of the crossing, the viewers reported favoring the peti tioners and recommending the con struction of a sixty-foot roadway. The commissioners ordered the township trustee to proceed in carrying out the work. . , Trustee Howarth delayed until last week, when he was advised by his at torney to follow the order of the coun ty commissioners. He expected the receiver for the railroad company to enjoin him from completing it- Work was started this morning, " but was stopped about 10 o'clock, when Deputy Sheriff Mashmeyer read the court's order granting the temporary restrain ing order.
