'i- MemPh,s- SS Teiro., Nov. 20.—"There must be no partisan politics in the ar g|p my or the navy of the United States. All that it concerns lis to know about any generalor admiral, about a mlgh ty captain by sea or by land, is wheth er he is a thoroughly fit commander of men and loyal to the country as a ii whole." Thi3 declaration by President If Roosevelt in his speech at the auditorium last night during the re ception of General Luke Wright was received with prolonged applause, Roosevelt Speaks at Banquet. 1|||1 President Roosevelt, at a banquet given last evening at the Peabody as the closing event of the celebration, extended to General Luke Wright, responded to the toast "Our Country," and said in part as follows: "It is.a real and great pleasure to come to this typical city of the south ern Mississippi valley in order to greet a typical American, a Citizen of Ten nessee, who deserves honor, riot only trom his state, but from the entire country. General Luke E. Wriglit. We have a right to expect a high standard of manhood from Tennessee. "There have been Presidents of the United States for 113 years, and dur ing sixteen of those years Tennessee ans sat in the White House. Hardi hood and daring and iron resolution are of right to be expected among the Bons of a state which nurtured Andrew Jackson and Sam Houston, which pent into the American navy one of •the most famous fighting admirals of all time, Farragut. 'There is another reason why our country should be glad that it was General Wright who rendered this .• ^service. General Wright fought with ^distinguished gallantry among the "gallant meh who served in the armies /Jof the confederacy during the civil 4 war. We need no proof of the com pleteness of our reunion as a people. ^r.fWhen the war with Spain came the 'i'/iSons of the men who wore the gray qy^vied with one another in the effort to '.V" ,:get into the ranks an'd face a foreign jjpfoe under the old flag that had been Jffefcarried in triumph under Winfleld MpScott and Zachary Taylor and Andrew «l§£&Jackson. It was my own good fortune to serve under that fearless fighter,Joe Wheeler, a memory of which I shall al ways be proud. But if we needed any proof of the unity of our interests it would have been afforded this very year py General Wright, the ex-con federate, ifi his administration way fas act- ing governor of the Philippine islands. v. Upon him during the months of sum *j|j®mer rested a heavier burden of respon feKBlbility than any other public servant Ip^'at that particular time, and not the llggleast of his titles to our regard is the *n which he was able to work on ffeterms of cordial good will with the |||ghead of the army, himself a man who :had honored the blue uniform as if?: Wright had honored the gray. i|S Duty In the Philippines. Mm "General Wright's work has been as f£||4ifflcult as it was important. The events of the last four years have defi nitely decided that whether we wish |to or not we must hereafter play a 6 „«fcreat part in the world. We cannot es tape facing the duties. We may shirk them if we are built of poor stuff or wo may take hold and do them if we 'v care fit son3 of our sires, but face them ','we must, whether we will or not. Our -duty in the Philippine islands has simply been one of the duties that fethus have come upon us. We are there and we can no more haul down "e our flag and abandon the islands than f. we fcould now abandon Alaska. It can •.not be too often repeated that there vj* was no question that the work had to *'.be done. All the question was wheth er we would do it well or ill, and I' 4a7 thanks to the choice of men like Gov jh ernor Wright, is has been dono well. tiSSq^e qrat and absolutely indispensable rewiy^ wae order, peace. The reign of' violence, of'. resistance to v,legl£ithate authority, the reign of an-' archy, could for the civil authority was often done by the-officers and men of the regular army, and well done, too. Then the real work of building up a system of self-government for the peo ple who bad become our wards was begun under the auspices of the Phil ippine commission, Judge Taft being made governor, and I had the honor myself to appoint General Wright as vice governor. During the critical pe riod when the Insurrection was ending SsgQ THODS IPS DEAD REFUGEES BRING NEWS OP DE STRUCTION BY VOLCANO. Survivors In Danger of Starvation General Barillos and His Family Safe—Volcano In Guatemala Spreads Destruction. San PranclBCO, Nov. 20.—The first of the refugees from the devastated Jands of Guatemala have arrived on the Pacific mall steamer City of Para. They sailed on November 7, when the volcano was still smoking, and rum bling of thunder and flashes of light ning gave evidence of more eruptions to come. The people fled from their 'escaped to the seaside with little more than the clothing they wore. The refugees confirm stories of loss of life. They had not heard of any white people being lost, but thousands of Indians were asphyxiated or buried in the sand. Miles of plantations are under ashes and absolute ruin is the lot of many planters. One refugee comes from within half an hour's ride of General Barillos, and brings infor mation that the general and. his family are safe. and the time was one of transition be tween a state of war and a stage of peace, at the time that I issued a proc lamation declaring that the state of war was over and that the'civil gov ernment was now in complete com mand, General Wright served as gov ernor of the archipelago. The pro gress of the islands both in material well being and as regard order and justice under the administration of governor Wright and his colleagues has been astounding. "There is no question as to our not having gone far enough and fast enough in granting self-government to the Filipinos the only possible dan ger has been lest we should go fastor and farther than was in the Interest of the Filipinos themselves. Each Fil ipino at the present day is guaranteed his life, his liberty and the chance to pursue happiness as he wishes so long as he does not harm his fellows in a way which the islands have never known before during all their recorded history. The islands have ijever been as orderly, as peaceful or as prosper ous as- now, and In nO Other oriental country, whether ruled by Asiatics or Europeans, is there anything approach ing to the amount individual liber ty and of self-government whlchour rule has brought to the'Filipinos. The nation owes a great debt to the peo ple through whom this splendid work for civilization has been achieved, and therefore in behalf of the nation I have come here tonight to thank In your presence your fellow townsman because he has helped us materially to add a new page to the honor roll of American history. General Wright, I greet you. I thank you and 11wish you well." ', flE ADMITS PERJURY AFFIDAVIT SWORN TO IN TRIAL WAS FALSE. Claimed in Justification That He Had Hopes of Saving Money for the Institution by Which He Was Employed., Chicago, Nov. 20.—Captain Edward Williams, the convicted conspirator against Cook county and a witness for the prosecution in the trial of Presi dent Gormley, of the Masonic Frater nity Temple association on the charge of conspiracy, admitted on cross-ex amination today that he committed perjury in swearing to a false affidavit in the course of his own trial. In ex plaining the reason for this false testi mony he said: "I had paid $20,000 of the corporation's'money in good faith to men whom I understood to be em ployes of the county treasurer's office and believed that I had a moral justi fication in the hope of saving that money. The affidavit was prepared, by the attorneys and I took the whole dose just as a patient takes a prescrip tion given by his doctor." BIG TURKEY FOR ROOSEVELT. Poquonnock, R.

ROBERTS PLACED ON STAND Undergoes Oross-Examina iion Before the Strike Commission Today. I N E A A I I E S Shows Them to be Less Than on the Railroad. OPERATORS NOT HARD HEARTED Roberts Claims That They Do Not Try to Grind. Men Down to Last Penny in Wages—Says That Re ports Have Been Exaggerated. Scranton, Nov. 20.—The cross ex amination of Rev. Dr. Peter Roberts was continued beforo the strike com mission today. Roberts said that a comparison of the fatalities on all the railroads in the United States, with those in the anthracite fields show that 2.56 per every 1,000 railroad em ployes are killed and in the anthracite industry the fatalities of switchmen, flagmen and watchmen in 1900, he stated to have been 5.36 per 1,000, against 5.5 per 1,000 among the min ers and mine laborers. Not Hard Hearted. The question of arriving at a fair price on rock In connection with coal mining, Dr. Roberts said, was one that could be adjusted by the mine em ployes and the companies. He said it was far from the truth to characterize the operators as hard hearted and un just and seeking constantly to grind the men down to the last penny of wages, as had been charged. ....Reports Exaggerated, .Mr. Roberts said tbaf the newapa-" per reports of violence had been great ly exaggerated. The acts of intimida tion, violence and boycott cannot all be attributed to the union. When the operators refused to arbitrate the men were forced to strike to gain their demands. "They grew hungry in the struggle, and a hungry man is danger ous." TELEPHONE NOT GOOD. Western Union Will Probably Refuse to Accept Telegrams by Phone. Ft.
