FIRST SEES A PRESIDENT No National Chief Ever Visit ed Dover, N. H., 270 Years Old, Till Yesterday MR. ROOSEVELT SPEAKS Tells the New Englanders That the Good JVlan Has Courage, Com mon Sense and Honesty SOME GREAT PROBLEMS NOW BEFORE THE NATION Says Every Citizen Should Do His Duty to His Neighbor in Private Life and to the State and Be a Part of the Business Energy of His Settle ment. DOVER, N. H., Aug. 26.—For the first time in the history of Dover, which was founded in 1632, a president of the United States was a guest here today. Thousands joined in the wel come to President Roosevelt. On the arrival of the presidential party they ■were received by Mayor A. G. Whitte xnore and a committee. Under an es cort of militia the guests were escort ed to a platform in Franklin square, where the president delivered an ad dress. He said "Mr. Mayor and You, My Fellow Cit izens, Men and Women of New Hamp shire: I speak here in one of the old est cities of the old thirteen colonies from which sprang the United states, and both in your post and your pres ent you epitomize much of the na tional life. We are all of us apt to get to talking and thinking of the nation and the state as abstractions. If we ■will think of oui selves and our neigh bors, how we get along and how they get along, we will have a pretty fair Idea of what can be done, simply on a larger scale in the nation and the Btate. Look at your own history here in Dover; go through the pioneer days and from them down to the modern city, the product of the great indus trialism of our time. Great Industrial Expansion. "We are here now, you are here now, I am addressing you all, because of the great industrial expansion; symbol ized by your factories, by the railroad, the telegraph and all of their attend ants. We would not be here if it was not for them, but their existence has caused great questions to rise in our national life. It is more complicated business, Mr. Mayor, to run this city than it was to run Dover when Dover consisted of a dozen log cabins. With the growth in wealth and prosperity has come an accentuation of differ ences between man and man which do harm in two ways, which do harm when they make one man arrogant, which do equal harm when they make another man envious. "Our salvation now as in \he old days, lies in the practical applying of principles that in theory we admit to be the only principle ac cording to which it is possible to ad minister this republic. The principle of treating with man on his worth as a man is the principle of recognizing facts as they are, of recognizing our material needs, and therefore the ab solute necessity to the prosperity which must satisfy those material needs, and of recognizing further that nothing is to be hoped for from peo ple who are content only to satisfy their material needs. When Prosperity Is Curse. "If we have not got in us the lift toward righteousness, the lift toward something better than material needs, prosperity will be a curse instead of a blessing. We need it, we need it as a foundation —we can't build ' a house without a foundation, but the foundation is not the house. You have got to have the superstructure; you have got to have in addition to it business energy, and thrift, industry, which has produced centers of indus trial activity like this. You have to have, yoa must have, in addition the spirit that made the men of this neigh borhood foremost in the revolution that made this state do her duty so well and so nobly in the Civil war. We need business energy, business thrift. "We need other things, too: we have got to have a proper ideal of our lives. Each man must do his duty by his neighbor both in private life and to that representative of himself and of his neighbor, the state. And to do that you need three qualities. You need more, but you need three. Above all — honesty in the first place; you can do nothing without it. And that is not enough. Courage Is Also Needed. "I don't care how honest a man is, If he is timid, he is of very little use in the world. You have got to have courage as well as honesty. I don't care how brave and honest a man is, If he is a natural-born fool you can do little with him. In addition to honesty, in addition to courage, you need |ommon sense, and sometimes one is tempted to think it much too uncommon a quality. You need those qualities in private life and you need them in public liff. There are great problems ahead of us as a nation, but the really greatest problem is the problem of making better men and better women of all of us." On returning to the train, the presi dent found Gen. F. B. Farnham and Col. E. B. Sangers, of Bangor, Me : Col. E. Dill, of Augusta, and other representatives of Gov. John F. Hill, of Maine, who had come to escort the residential party across the New Hampshire line. <• Will Make a Tour of Maine.

CLEVELAND, Ohio, Aug. 26.—"N0 card, no work," rules which Business Agen Millson, of the Bricklayers' union, announces will be applied, will make it necessary for Senator Hanna to join the Bricklayers' union and get a working card before he can lay the corner stone of the great building the Salvation army is about to erect. Senator Hanna was one of the most generous contributors for this new citadel, and is to lay the corner stone. Millson says Hanna can be elected an honorary member of the Bricklayers' union and be given a temporary working card. The senator says he does noi know whether he will lay the corner stone or not.

URIBE-URIBE URGES FOL LOWERS TO STAND BY HIM UNTIL 1904 THINKS PANAMA FRANCHISE WILL THEN BE INVALID Washington Takes Little Stock in the Story, Though It Is Known That the Colombian Congress Never Approv ed the Six-Year Extension Granted the French Company. WASHINGTON, D. C, Aug. 26.—The proclamation just issued by Gen. Uribe-Uribe, one of the leaders of the revolutionary forces in Colombia, urg ing his followers to continue the war fare against the government forces until 1904, when, he declares, the fran chise of the Panama Canal company XsS^^^^y^ will be invalid and negotiations can be carried on directly between Colom bia and the United States, is regarded with considerable interest in Central and South American diplomatic' quar ters here The officials of the CoMfe bian l^pation in Washington admits that the six years' extension to the Panama company's franchise, granted by former President San Clemente, is open to a question of legality, for the reason that while it was approved by the Colombian cabinet, it was not rat ified by the Colombian congress. In deed, it is stated here that the pro posed extension was not even submit ted to the Colombian legislature, the country being then in a disturbed con dition which precluded a calling to gether of that body. Franchise Not Involved. However, Colombian officials here point out that the questioned exten sion of time has nothing whatever to do with the present negotiations be tween the United States and Colombia in regard to the canal. No one in Co lombia, they state, questions for a mo ment the valdiity of the franchise up to 1904. The intervening time they consider ample for the clearing of title by the French company, and the trans fer of its rights to the United States government. The extension of the franchise, they claim, will not enter into the matter at all. The officials are inclined to scoff at the idea of a revolu tion of sufficient strength to prevent the government from carrying out its plans in regard to the canal can be kept until 1904. Senor Concha, the Colombian minis ter here, has furnished the officials of Bogota with a number of modifications which Secretary Hay has proposed in the terms of the canal treaty. These modifications, it is stated here, have not been received with disfavor at the Colombian capital, and the officials are confident that they will be agreed to. Government Is Not Alarmed. The Colombian legation tonight re ceived a cablegram from Bogota cor roborating previous official reports an nouncing the pacification of the In terior of the country, and also giving Minister Concha further detailed in structions regarding the canal treaty. The dispatch says the interior of Co lombia is now entirely at peace, and that there is nothing left of the revolu tion save in the Isthmus of Panama, and a small force of the revolutionists in the state of Magdalena. The latter, according to the latest official advices, is giving the Bogota government no un easiness. About 10,000 men are being dispatched to the isthmus, and proba bly 1,000 of them will be detailed to cope with the situation in Magdalena. It is said that some sharp action may shortly be taken by Colombia as the re sult of reports that the rebel gunboats are coaling and receiving arms and am- Continued on Fourth Page. $150,000 FIRE LOSS AT PRAIRIE J)U CHIEN Damage in the Woolen Mills Likely to Reach Big Figures—Employed 100 Persons. PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, Wis., Aug. 26. —Fire broke out late tonight in the Prairie dv Chien woolen mills and the damage will probably reach $150,000. The origin of the fire is unknown. The flames were first discovered in one of the main buildings where the offices are located, Vthe engine and boiler rooms being aireetly^back of the of fices. The main building, which con tains the offices, finishing rooms and shipping rooms on the first floor and carding and picking rooms on the sec ond floor, together with the drying room and trousers department on the third floor,- are a total loss. The new building just north of the main building, containing? the washing rooms, dye rooms, wool rooms and fitted out with the latest machinery, is also a total loss.

MISSISSIPPI LOW FATHER OF WATERS ACTING IN A MANNER TO CAUSE COMMENT LOWEST MARK REACHED IN YEARS AT DUBUQUE Lumber Season Will Be Shortest in Twenty Years en Northern Section of River, While South of the Mouth of the Dcs Moines There Is a Ruin iously High Stage. KEOKUK, lowa, Aug. 26.—An un precedented state of affairs exists on the Mississippi river as a result of different meteorological conditions in different portions of its valley. Lum ber interests are approaching paralysis from low water on the higher stretches of the river, and manufacturing inter- ests are losing heavily from high water just above St. Louis. Great alarm exists among river men around Dubuque, where the stage of water is only about two feet, the lowest mark reached for years. Water Extremely Low. The river .fluctuates up and down, with falls greater than the rises, and the stage this morning at La Crosse was only one and six-tenths feet at the government gauge, with two and seven-tenths feet as far down as Dav enport. The general belief among lumbermen is that the present season will be the shortest in twenty years. The Dubuque mills have a supply of logs only for a week or two, and until there is a marked rise in the river they must shut down. The same con ditions will exist in cities on that part of the river farther down. The iore cast of the weather bureau is for con tinued falling of the river. High Below the Dcs Moines. On the other hand, the river below the mouth of the Dcs Moines river has been high all summer. At Hannibal it is seriously interfering with dredge building in the Burlington route yards, and one big dredge building for that railroad is under water. Various fac tories are disturbed by the high water on the* lower part of the upper Mis sissippi and each smart rise causes fears of flood damage. REV.

Sam Small, the well-known temperance lecturer, who was to speak for the No-License-local optlon party here last night by Rev. Mr. Small's own admission today was due to intoxication.

C, Aug. 26.—The monthly statement 6f the collections of internal revenue shows that for the month of July, 1902, the total collections were $22,236,359, a decrease as compared with July, 1901, of $7,107,637.

SEATTLE, Wash., Aug. 26.—The first press message to the outside world by wire from Valdes was re ceived by the Times, the telegraph line just having been completed. The dispatch reports that Robert Blei, the expert, sent into the Nazine silver dis trict by Capt. Delamar, has just reach ed Valdes and reports that the Nazine district has the greatest mines in Alaska.

Special to The Globe. CHICAGO, Aug. 26.—Officers of the Republic Iron and Steel company are negotiating for the purchase of an other ore tract on the Mesaba range. Part of the tract is now being mined, and the company's experts estimate that altogether it contains about 15, --000,000 tons of ore. It is the policy of the company to strengthen its posi tion in this regard whenever it is pos sible. In his recent semi-annual report to the stockholders President Thompson stated that the value of the company's ore was then estimated at $21,750,000. This is nearly $1,000,000 more than the amount of preferred stock outstanding. It is possible tjiat the purchase now under, consideration will be made joint ly with the Cambria Steel company in the same manner, as the Republic pur chased some ore property a couple of years ago with the American Steel Hoop company. The new property in question has been examined by both the Cambria and Republic people, and it was probably for that reason that reports of consolidation were current recently in New York. Officials of the Republic company deny that any such deal is under contemplation. The an nual meeting of the Republic company will be held in New Jersey Oct. 15. The books close Sept. 19 for the meet ing and the dividend recently declared and reopen on Oct. 16.
