The Booming
Of Thousands of Southern
Pulls Into the Old Romantic City of New
By Associated Press.
New Orleans, La., May 1. The Pres
idential party traveled across the cot
ton belt today, from Memphis almost
to tho Gulf of Mexico.
Down tho low lying rich Yazoo val
ley, fertile as that of tho Nile, It went
to VIcksburg, teeming with its mem
ories of 30 years ago, thence east to
Jackson, tho capital of Mississippi,
and from there down into the land of
the magnolia and the orange to the old
romantic city near the mouth of the
Mississippi, with its traditions of
French and Spanish rule.
'The outpourings of tho people to sen
the Presidential train along the route
today wero largerthan on tho two pre
vious days and tho demonstrations at
VIcksburg and Jackson, tho two prln-
.pal stops were very striking.
At Jackson, Miss., Governor Longl
no Introduced Piesident McKihley as
the President of the whole country.
The President spoke In part as fol
lows: "This country of ours has been
growing in the last few years, growing
whether It wanted to grow or not.
The war with Spain started us to
growing and we could not help It if
wo would . Our growth has made new
problems, but tho American people
have faced them and will continue to
faco them. We will have our diff
erences; men always will, but wi
havo more agi cements than differen
ces. We may differ as to politics and
agree as to principles, but we keep in
tho home circle and settlo our differ
ences Among ourselves, which Is the
grandest tribute In the world to ths
American people. ,We have settled
matters of foreign policy In tho past to
our satisfaction and will' treat now
ones In fear of God."
Secretary of State Hay, Postmaster
General Smith, Secretary Hitchcock
and Secretary Wllspn spoke brlclly.
McKlnley stood on the iilatfoim and
shook hands with hundreds who
crowded around tho train as It start
ed out.
Mrs. McKlnley vis not feeling well,
tho President explained, and could not
respond to calls.
A stop of a minute was made at
Wesson, Miss., to ii.rmlt tho President
to see tho operatives of the Wesson
mill, ono of tho largest cotton mills In
the south. About ICO employes greet
ed tho President, and ho made a few
remarks as did others of the party.
Tho visit to VIcksburg was in some
respects tho most interesting yet
made. Hero a triumphal arch of cot
ton bales, with the word "Expansion,"
pointed out to tho President as ho
passed under it tho path of tho New
South. 5 I .
Although It had not been intended
to make any stops after leaving Jack
son, tho train was halted at several of
tho smaller towns, whero cotten mills
aro located, to permit tho Preuidcnt to
see and speak to tho operatives.
At some of the stations the crowds
actually impeded the progress of the
train and tho engineer was obliged to
slow down to avoid dangef of running
over enthusiastic people
As the sun ia lowering the train
crossed the bayous with their tangles
of moss covered cypress and live oak
sklitlng lake Ponchartraln and stea'm
ed Into New Otleans.
This Is the first time Now Orleans
has ever had a visit from tho chief
muglstmte of the nation, and It was a
great reception which the old city ex
tended to President McKlnley.
President McKlnley himself has
been hero befote. Ho made a visit
here the year preceedlng his nomina
tion for the Presidency and ex-Pres-dont
Cleveland was hero upon ono oc
casion during the Intermission be
tween his two terms, but never eforo
has a President while in ofllce visited
tho Crescent City.
Tho air was full of tho blare of
banus, tho booming of cannon and tho
scream of whistles from the harbor
craft as the train drew Into the sta
tion. Here the President and his
party wero greeted by Governor
Heard.MayorCapedeville, Senators Me-
Enery and Foster, the entire Louisi
ana delegation in Congress, the city
council and representatives of the vai
lous commercial exchanges.
AVhlle the mayor was formally ex
tending tho hospitality of the city to
the President a military band wa
completely drowning his words with
the New Orleans lavorite air, "Louisi
ana Lou."
Tho Piesident and his party passed
out of tho station between a line of
smart looking militiamen and a
smarter looking lint of young cadets
from the Jesuit Military College.
The boys ranged In age from S to li,
but despite their youth they made a
fine appearance In their gray uni
forms. Outside, the Governor's staff, re
splendent hi gold lace and mounted on
plunging chargers, awaited the Presi
dential party.
The crowd around the station was
so dense that it lequlred the heroic
efforts of the police to keep the path
to the carriages clear.
A big military parade consisting of
artillery and all the militia
from this end of the state, escorted
the paity to tho new St. Charles Ho
The city was liberally but not lav
isnly adorned with the national colors,
nut the crowds In the streets wero tre
mendous. The iron wrought galler
ies which embroider the fionts of tho
buildings hero fairly groaned under
their burden of human freight.
Tho feature of the crowd was the
great number of handsome women
who watched the procession from the
windows and galleries.
Mrs. McKlnley and the ladies of tho
party dined quietly at tho hotel anil
later received the ladies of Now Or
leans. THE" BANQUET.
Tho President and his Cabinet with
tho other gentlemen of the party wei c
given an elaborate banquet at the ho
tel In tho evening.
About 300 of tho prominent men of
New Orleans wero present and the
banquet was said to havo surpassed
anything of a similar character at
tempted heretofoio in this city.
Tomorrow the party will drive about
tho city in the morning and in tho af
ternoon will tako a sail along the river
front. At 0 p. m. tho Presidential
party will again re3umo its journey
towards the Golden Gate.
