GREAT NAVAL PAGEANT
PRESIDENT .REVIEWS. LARGEST
WAR FLEET EVER GATHERED
IN AMERICAN WATERS.
A ll KINDS OF CRAFT REPRESENTED
THREE COLUMNS OF FIGHTING
VESSELS, EACH ABOUT TWO
MILES IN LENGTH.
Oyster Bay, N. Y., $ept. fA salute
of twenty-one guns, fired simultane
ously by every fighting craft in a
mighty fleet of two score warships,
greeted President Roosevelt when he
stepped on board the naval yacht May
flower to review what is believed to
be the largest war fleet that ever as
sembled in American waters. When
the president stepped on board the
Mayflower the great .fleetvlay in three
columns, each about two miles in
length, with battleships and monitors
in the center column, the cruisers and
several other battleships in the o
shore column and a long line of tor
pedo destroyers stretched between the
remainder of the fleet and the shore.
Encircling the entire fleet was a
cordon of cutters, making a picket
line for the exclusion of the excursion
Dull and lowering skies, with fitful
showers of rain sweeping across the
sound, threatened to rob the display
of much of its beauty and put a
damper over the enthusiasm of the
thousands of spectators who were
gathered to witness it in every man
ner of craft conceivable.
Half an hour before the arrival of
the president Secretary of the Navy
Bonaparte boarded the Mayflower and
was received with a salute by the
marine guard and the ruffles of the
drums. Following him came Postmas
ter General Cortelyou, who was also
honored on the quarterdeck.
Naval Attaches See Review.
The naval attaches representing
foreign governments came on board
the Des Moines and were transferred
to the Mayflower in launches.
A large number of gnest3 of Presi
dent and Mrs. Roosevelt were on
board the Dolphin.
Followed by the cruiser Des Moines
and by the Dolphin the Mayflower
proceeded out of Oyster bay to the
head of the fleet off Lloyds neck,
where the battleship Maine, with Rear
Admiral Robley D. Evans on board,
lay in the central position at the head
of the fleet. The Dolphin and Des
Moines took up their positions re
spectively at the head of the third
and first columns and the Mayflower
passed down between the long lines of
warships while the roar of the pres
ident's salute of twenty-one guns again
burst from the 3-inch guns of each
warship as the Mayflower swept ma
jestically past. While the review was
taking place the clouds began to roll
away and before it was finished the
sun broke through and brought all the
splendor of the great white warships
and long black torpedo destroyers
which went tp *make the mightiest
fleet that the United States has ever
After luncheon the president visited
several ships of the fleet. When he
returned again to the Mayflower the
review was practically at an end, al
though Mr. Roosevelt and most of his
guests remained on board to witness
the illumination of the fleet.

John Wilmann, the present county auditor, is a candidate for re-
nomination and deserves the hearty support of the people at the
polls Sept. 18, 1906.
Mr. Wilman has made an enviable record as county auditor and
we have always found him at his post of duty ready to accomadate
Mr. Wilmann had a very difficult task before him when he took
the office two years ago. The records were in bad shape and after
working hard day and night for the last year and a half he has
succeeded in straightening out the affairs to such an extent that
they were never in better shape than at the present time.
He has added thousands of acres of land to the tax list that have
for years escaped taxation.
His way of handling the forfeited tax sale last year met with the
approval of the state auditor, who made a personal visit to the aud-
itors office at the time of the sale.
The office of the county auditor is an important one, and a man
is needed there who is competent and willing to safeguard the in-
terests of the taxpayers and such a man is found in the present
auditor, John Wilmann who is seeking re election.

Beltrami county. Mr. Gibbons is an able attorney,, a well read
lawyer, and by his carefulness, has a faculty of making friends
wherever he meets people. The office of county attorney is an im-
portant one and the people will make no mistake nominating Mr.
