liner came nit ships of the navy. The
battleship South Carolina was in the
van while at anchor in the roadstead
awaiting her coming was the l/nited
States dispatch I mat Dolphin with the
Secretary of the Navy on board.
Mrs. Roosevelt was first to come
down the gang plank from the Kais
erin to the revenue cutter Manhattan.
In a moment she had thrown her
arms about her children, Archie and
Quentin, and effusively kissed and
hugged both of them. She next j
greeted Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., and i
his fiancee, Miss Kleanor Alexander. |
Mr. Roosevelt made a flying leap to ;
the deck of the Manhattan and with
the exuberance and spirit of a school
boy he slapped his son Theodore on
the bark. He then turned to Miss
Alexander and kissed her. He took
up Quentin and Archie In his arms
and gave them resounding smacks,
'these greetings over. Mr. Roosevelt,
with Collector of the Port Loeb at
his side, extended cordial gretings
to others on board the Manhattan. |
He shook hands with everybody, in-1
eluding the members of the crew.
There was more firing of the big
guns when Mr. Roosevelt left the j

the big parade. The United States
steamship Dolphin lead the parade
and was closely followed by the An
droscoggin, which got away at twelve
minutes past nine. The first address
of welcome presented to Mr. Roose
velt was handed him by the boarding
pilot on behalf of the pilot's associa
tion. This association was the last
to speed the Colonel on his departure
from New York. Health Officer Doty
was the first of those from shore to
pay his respects to Mr. Roosevelt.
Senator Lodge of Massachusetts, Con
gressman Nicholas l,ongworth of (
Ohio, and Captain Budd boarded the
Kaiserin trom the Manhattan and
were received by Mr. Roosevelt In his
stateroom. As the time for Colonel
Roosevelt’s arrival at the Battery!
drew near, enormous crowds swarm
ed toward Battery Park, overflowing
the sidewalks and almost tying up
traffic In the lower part of the city.
The whole city had taken on a holi
day appearance. The early morning
had been foggy, but uuder the Influ
ence of clearing skies, flags and pen
nants broke out gaily and the sun
was bright and warm.
It was estimated that by the time
Colonel Roosevelt arrived at the Bat
tery fully 100,000 persons were
massed there. Flags floated every
where. Broadway and other streets
leading Into Battery Park were n. ea
with moving streams of humanity,

Theodore Roosevelt, e*-Presi
dent of the United States, states
man and cosmopolitan, was
greeted back to his native land
today by such a demonstration
of popular enthusiasm and per
sonal devotion as has Beldom if
ever been accorded to a return
ing American traveler. Each
step In this eventful home
homecoming from the time he
had debarked from the steamer
Kaiserin August Victoria until
he reached Broadway umld the
tumultuous demonstration of
throngs of people was one con
tinuous ovation and a tribute of
popular enthusiasm. The land
ing at the Battery was the sig
nal for a clamorous ovation and
here Mayor (laynor In a brief
but felicitous speech welcomed
the former President to his
home land. Mr. Roosevelt, re
sponding, spoke briefly but sig
nificantly of the part he will
continue to take in public af
fairs. By noon the popular wel
come was practically concluded
and Mr. Roosevelt Joined his
relatives for luncheon prepara
tory to returning to his home at
Oyster Bay later In the day.

steamed up the bay and Into the Hud

Colonel Roosevelt left the An

a. m. and walked to his place in the
speaker's stand, accompanied by
Mayor Gaynor. "Is there a stenog

question. On assurance that there
was, he said: "Good. Now we'll go
ahead. Boys, I’m feeling fine." May
or Gaynor welcomed Colonel Roose
velt briefly and then Mr. Roosevelt
began his reply immediately. His
voice was a little hoarse, but he spoke
with his usual force and declamatory
effect. A big cheer and a loud laugh
went up when he said with emphasis,
“I enjoyed myself intensely.”
Issues Statement.
Colonel Roosevelt last evening
gave out the following interview:
“I have been away a year and a

ciation of the more generous cour
tesy and hospitality with which I was
treated by the people and rulers of
the countries through which I passed.

“I appreciate deeply the kindness
of a multitude of friends who have
asked me to speak in different places
and hope they will understand it is
simply a physical impossibility for
me even to consider accepting more

than two months and then will speak

er places.
Nothing to Nay About Politics.
"I shall have nothing whatever to
say in the immediate future about

Attorney General to Pros,
ecute Meat Dealers Ac
cused of Violating Law
WASHINGTON, D. C„ June 18.—
Under instructions of Attorney Gen
eral Wlckersham, William S. Kenyon,
assistant to the Attorney General, is
expected to file today in the United
States Circuit Court of Chicago a bill
in equity against certain of the Chi
cago stock yard companies for alleg
ed rebating on freight charges.
The biH of the Attorney General
was prepared at the request of the
Interstate Commerce Commission,
which is the complainant in the pro
ceeding. It is directed against the
Union Stock Yards and Transit com
pany, the Chicago Junction Railways
and Union Stock Yards company and
Louis Pfaelzer & Sons.
It is alleged in the bill that the
tracks of the Chicago Junction Rail
way company are controlled by cor
poratlons subsidary to the Union
Stock Yards company. The railway
company handles all Incoming and
outgoing stock for the Union Stock
Yards at Chicago. It is alleged that
the live stock freight is delivered to
the Chicago Junction Railway from
all the trunk lines entering Chicago,
and by it delivered to the Union Stock
Yards; that specific sums per car
are paid by the Trunk Lines carriers
for this service, including the load
ing and unloading of stock cars, jet
no tariff is filled by the Junction com
pany for this service, nor is the
service, nor is the charge included
in any tariff filed by the Trunk Line
carriers with the Interstate Com
merce Commission.
Say Stock Yards Control.
It further is alleged that the Junc
tion Railway company serves approxi
mately 650 industries In and about
the stock yards district of Chicago
and that all of the tracks operated
by the Junction company are owned
solely by the stock yards company.
The complaint alleges that none of
the charges made by the Junction
Railway on freight, either Incoming
or outgoing, is published or filed
through the Interstate Commerce
Commission, although the bulk of
traffic is in Interstate commerce. The
stock yard company advances to the
trunk line railroads all charges and
twice each week collects from the
consignees the moneys it has ad
vanced to the railroads for the trans
portation of stock from points out
side the State of Illinois to the stock
It is declared in the bill that two
thirds of the net earnings and
revenue received by the Junction
company insure to the benefit of the
stock yard company, Louis Pfaelzer
& Sons are engaged In general pack
ing business near the site of the
Union Stock Yard company. The
firm purchases live stock at the stock
yards and also purchases live stock
at points outside the state of Illinois,
which it ships from points of origin
to the Union Stock Yards on through
bills of lading over the lines of the
Junction company in connection with
the original trunk line carriers. It
is alleged that Louis Pfaelzer & Sons
have entered into a contract with the
yard company by which the stock
company will pay to that firm $50,
000, fully guaranteed, “ostensiblly
for the purpose of encouraging, de
veloping and retaining at or near the
stock yards in Chicago the business of
said Louis Pfaelzer & Sons,” and also
increase the earnings of the Junction
company by increasing the amount of

today as to the merits of the case. The committee has authority to meet
