Montauk Point, Sept. 3.--Presi dent McKlnley and Secretary Alger arrived this morningr-on a special train from Long Island Citv. Camp WiKOFP.New York, Sept. 3. President McKlnley and Secretary Al per arrived on a special train at 8:50 this morning' and were enthusiastically re'eived.The Third cavalry was drawn up in line by the station platform to 66 cort tbe party from tbe station to camp Wikoff. Gen. Wheeler and his staff were also present, together with Gen erals Chaffee, Wilson, Ludlow, Ames, and Sumner and all; division and brig ade commanders .in full uniform Every general bad with him his full staff. When tbe train rolled into the sta' tion here tnree rousing cheers were given by the crowds of soldiers and civilians gatherei in anticipation of the occasion. General Ludington and Commissary General Egan and their staffs were in the first car and were the first to alight. They greeted General Wheeler and told him the president and secretary of war were in the third car. General Wheeler started in that di rection, but juat be'ore he reached the platform, President McKlnley appear ed at the door. He took off bis hat to General Wheeler, who immediately re turned the salute. The president and the general then shook hands cordially. Wheeler and Alger then conversed for time while McKinley 'shook hands with other generals who had come to welcome him. After several minutes conversation among tbe officers, the president and Secretary Alger get into a carriage which was waiting for them. They were followed by Vice President Ho- bart, Major Hays, and John Addison Porter, the president's private secreta ry who accompanied tbe president on bis staff. All the general staff and officers mounted without further formality, and tbe president and his party start ed off toward camp. Tbe presidential party visited tbe camp of detention and the hospital, and spent the morn ing looking around the entire camp. The president and secretary took luncheon-at Gen. Wheeler's headquar ters. Tbe president was heartily cheered as he moved through camp. The sol- iers gathered in front of their tents. cheering and waving their hats as the presidential party passed. President McKinley repeatedly bowed and smiled as tbe men received him with their great enthusiasm. The party stopped first at Shafter's headquarters, just in side the boundary of tbe detention amp. General Shatter, who ha? been ill with malaria, was sitting up in bis BtTSSKLL A. ALGER. tent. "Don't rise. General, if you -are ill," McKlnley said, and before Shat ter could reply, he continued, "How are you?" "I am better." replied Shafter. '"How did you get alODg in the south?' j asked the president. "The results down there more than compen sated me for the illness and discom fort," he replied . The president remained but a few minutes with Shafter and was then driven to the general hospital. On the short drive from the detention camp an excellent view of tbe camp was had. Gen. Wheeler was beside the president's carriage pointing out different objects of interest. "All the doctors and nurses and many patients were assembled in fron t of the general hospital when the presi dent arrived. Col. Forwood greeted the president and assumed the conduct of the party. Vice President Hobart with bis band in bis pockets followed in a very democratic fashion. He oc casionally entered a ward and shook hands with a soldier. The president's duty was performed assiduously. Not a ward or kitchen escaped him. Beginning at the offi cers' ward he went through one by one with his bat in his hand, speaking kindly to the sick and wounded. After leaving the hospital McKinley drove out to the infantry camp. All the infantry regiments were on the plain drawn up on parade as the presi dential party passed through camp. The men presented arms in salute to the president and he acknowledged it by doffing his. hat repeatedly, the in- ianiry Danes meanwniie playing war marches. Tbe infantry gave tbe presi dent a hearty welcome everywhere, cheering and waving their hats. The president did not stop but drove out slowly to the camp of the cavalry di? vision. Tbe troops gave three rousing cheers. The visiting- party reached the camp of rough riders unexpectedly. Three companies of rough riders forgot to mount their horses in their surprise. Col. Roosevelt was equal to the emer gency, however, for he dashed through the troopers to the head of the troop and then called on his men to cheer. The response was deafening. Montauk, Sept. 3. The president and his party left Montauk at 1:50 o'clock. He was escorted to the train by the Third cavalry and as the train pulled out the yaoht Aileen fired a presidential salute, while the cavalry men presented swords. HOMESICKNESS Among Troops In the Philippines. Manila, Sept. 3. Cablegrams were sent yesterday by the English residents in Manila to Lord Salisbury urging MAJOR COUNT ESTERHAX.Y, Who directed tbe prosecution against Zola and who is charged by Zola with the crime for which Dreyfus was sen tenced. him to use his utmost endeavors to in duce tbe United States government to retain the Philippine islands perma nently, as an inviolable American col onial possession. Tbe feeling on this subject is very strong among foreign subjects. It is realized here that anarchy is likely to follow either the return of the Span iards to power or tbe independence of the islands under native government. There is a general epidemic of borne sickness among the American troops. Some of the North Dakota troops are making the best of the situation by or ganizing tbe Manila lodge of free ma sons, tbe first in this quarter of the globe. BALKED AGAIN. Gen. Mlles's Request For a Period of Recuperation For His Men is Ignored. New York, Sept. 3. Gen. Mlles's plan to have the volunteers now on their way from Porto Rico go into camp near this city and then, after a few week's rest.parade in review before him in New York City, has been upset by the war department. Alger announces that the troops, when they arrive in port, will be landed at Jersey City and sent direct to their states to be mustered out.- Miles's plea for a period of re cuperation for the men is apparently ignored. Army officers here are ask ing whether this is . another phase in the Alger-Miles controversy. CALL FOR BONDS Fourteen Million Dollars Worth Will Be Paid. Washington, Sept. 3.

WAR IN EGYPT British Driving In The Enemy's Out post. London, Sept. 3. A dispatch to a local news agency says that Gen. Kit chener's forces advanced to a point near Kerrerie on September 1, driving in tbe enemy's outposts. This was ac complished without loss to the British, who halted to await the result of the gunboat attack: upon tbe forts. The Kpalaff force, which is estimated at 35,000 men, was drawn up out side of Omdurman. . A later dispatch confirms the report of the return of Commander Keppel's gunboats to Lasri island. The dispatch also says that the tomb of the Mahdi and tbe mosque at Omdurman have been partially destroyed by the Bri tish. The government has telegraph ed the news to the queen at Osborne. GREAT COST To the Governments for the Ameri can Liners Washington, Sept. 3. The Ameri can line steamers St. Louis, St. Paul, Yale, and Harvard, which have bees taken out of commission, were used 133 days, so the cost to tbe" government will be $1,330,000. Instead of putting the ships in first class condition again as per the original agreement, the navy will give the owners a lump sum for tbe work of restoration. Tbe amount will be $50,000 for each ship. While the Yale and Harvard were in use as arsny transports it is said they were disfigured in a shocking manner by the volunteers. , YELLOW FEVER Spreading In Mississippi.

TERRIFIC STORM Throughout Georgia. Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 3. Reports from all parts of the state reveal an alarming state of affairs as the result of tbe great storm. At Savannah and Brunswick the damage is already great, and the indications are that fur ther rain and high wind may be ex pected. The Central railroad from Atlanta to Savannah is under water for 75 miles. Six schooners foundered off Savan nah. It is almost certain their crews have gone down with them. In the southern part of the state, all railroads are crippled, and schedules deranged. Crops are damaged, it is feared, ir redeemably. The Flint, Ooone, Eutaw, Ostawaula, and other rivers being on the boom causes fear of great loss of life with a certainty of immense damaga to property.

Capitalists 1 Pleased. The party of eastern capitalists has returned from the upper country, and the men will leave for the east today. President Eddy said to the reporter, "our trip was of the most pleasant nature and the men I took up with me were very much surprised at tbe country we have on our road. We left here and made a stop at .the mines which impressed them very much, then we went on to Alamogordo, aud they thought so well of the prospects of the small itown that they at once decided that more improvements should be placed there. The first thing done will be to build a large business block. After that the hotel will be put up and we expect to have the hotel finished in time for the health seekers this winter. A special effort is being made to make this a winter resort, and from the present outlook it will succeed. After leaving Alamogordo we went up in the moun tains and here again they were agree ably surprised at the climate and thought it fine, after having sweltered in the east." Not Up to Date. A man just in from the east said to a Herald reporter this morning: "What is the matter with the -bicycle rider of El Paso? I have traveled from tbe east here, stopping at all intermediate points of any importance, and have never in my extensive travels enter ed a town where there are so few bi cycle suitsworn as there are in El Paso. Why, back east the business men use them in their every .-. day busi ness, but here ' the suits are not worn by wheel riders. As far as I am concerned I like to see them. They ' look' comfortable and carry with them an air of business which is certainly attractive. The women wear their short bicycle skirts and this is a custom even as far west as Fort Worth, Texas, but I have notic ed but very few suits worn by women here. It must be that El Paso is be hind the times." Legal Holiday. Next Monday, Labor Day, is a legal j holiday. The banks will be closed. At the postoftice Sunday hours will be observed.
