The day's demonstration concluded with a display of fireworks on a magnificent scale. Prrgident Hooncrelt'n Si.oeeli. At the outset of his speech the presi dent made the point that with the ac quisition of the vast territory involved in the Louisiana purchase our career of expansion began. Continuing, he said: When we acquired it, we maile evident ones for all that consciously and of set purpose we had embarked on a career of expansion, that wo had taken our plaee among those daring and hardy nations who risk much with the hor9 and desire of winning high position among the great powers of the earth Never before had the world seen the kind of national expansion which pave our people all that part of the American con tinent lying west of the thirteen original states, the greatest landmark In which wa the Lculslana purchase. Our triumph in this proeefs of expansion was Indlssolu bly bound up with the success of our pe culiar kind of federal government, nd this auocess has been so complete that because of Its very completeness we now nomettmes fall to appreciate not only the all Importance, but tha tremendous diffi culty, of the problem with which our na tion was orlginr-.Uy faced. When our forefathers Joined to call Into being this nation, they undertook a task for which there was but little encourag ing precedent The development of civ ilization from the earliest period eeemed to show the truth of two propositions: In the first place, It had ejways proved ex ceedingly difficult to securo both freedom and strength In any government, and, in the second place, It had always proved well niRh impossible for a nation to ex pand without either breaklnc up or be coming a centralized tyranny. With the success of our effort to combine a strong and ettintcnt national union, able to put down disorder at home and to maintain ' our hopor and interest abroad, I have not now to deal. This success was signal and all important, but It was by no means unprecedented In the same sense that our type of expansion was unprecedented. Method of Expansion. We expanded by 'carving the wilderness Into territories and out of these territories building new states when once thpy had received as permanent settlers a autHeleiit numbf-r of. our own people. Being a prac tical nation, we have nwer tried to force on any section of our new territory an un suitable form of government merely be caust! it was suitable for another section under different conditions. Of the terri tory covered by the Louisiana purchase a portion was Riven statehood within a few years. Another portion has not been admitted to statehood, although a cen tury has elapsed, although doubtless it soon will be. In each case we showed the practical governmental genius of our race by devising- methods suitable to meet tha actual existing needs, not by insisting up on the application of some abstract shib boleth to all our new possessions alike, no matter how Incongruoaj this application might sometimes be. Over by far the ma.ior part of tit? ter ritory, however, our people spread In such numbers during the course of the nine teenth century that we were able to build up state after state, each with exactly the lame complete local Independence in all matters affecting purely its own domestic Interests as in any of the original thirteen states, each owing the same absolute fealty to the Union of all the states which each of the origiiftl thirteen states also Owes, itiiu iilitiiiy ri ii li-iVin mi; ntiiC proportional right to its share in shaping and directing the common policy of the Union which is possessed by any other state, whether of the original thirteen or not. This process now seems to us part of the natural order of things, but It was wholly unknown until our own people de- Vised it. The old pioneer days are gone, with their roughness and their hardship, their ! Incredible toll and their wild, half savage ! romance, but the need for the pioneer j virtues remains the same as ever. The , peculiar frontier conditions have vanish ed, but the manliness and stalwart hardi hood of the frontiersmen can be given even freer scope under the conditions sur rounding the complex Industrialism of the present day. We must insist upon courage and reso lution, upon hardihood, tenacity and fer tility in rtwource; we must insist upon the strong virile vJrtues, and we must Insist no less upon the virtues of self restraint, self mastery, regard for the rights of oth ers; we must show our abhorrence of cruelty, brutality and corruption in pub lic and 1n private life alike. If we come short in any of these qualities, we shall measurably fail, and if, as I believe we surely shall, we develop these qualities In the future to an even greater degree than In the past, then In the century now be ginning we shall make of this republic the freest and most orderly, tne most Just and most mighty nation which has ever come forth from the womb of time. Mr. Cleveland' Address. In the course of his speech former President Cleveland said: How fitting on every ground It is that the centennial of this stupendous event should be Joyously and appropriately cele brated and that it should be celebrated; here in the most populous of the stiilea created from the territory which the Louisiana purchase gave to us! And how j In keeping It Is with the character of this acquisition and with Its purpose and mis sion that our celebration should not waste Itself on the pomp and pageantry that be long to the triumphs and spoils of war ot to the rapacious dispossessions of ruthless conquest! Every feature of our celebra tion should remind us that we memorial ize a peaceful acquisition of territory foi truly American uses and purposes, and we should rejoice not only because this acquisition immediately gave peace and contentment to the spirited and deter mined American settlers who demanded an outlet of trade to the sea, but alsc because. It provided homes and means ot livelihood for the millions of new Ameri cans whose coming trend fell upon t lie ears of the expectant fathers of the- re public and whose stout hearts and brawny arms wrought the miracles which our cel ebration should Interpret. We are here at this hour to dedicate beautiful and stately edifices to the pur pose of our commemoration, but as we dc this let us remember that the sot I where on we stand was a century ago dedicated to the genius of American industry and thrift. For every reason nothing could be more appropriate as an Important part of the centennial commemoration we have undertaken than the gathering togethei on this spot of the things that are char acteristic of American effort and which tell the story of American achievement, end how happily will this be supplement ed and crowned by the generous, mag nanimous and Instructive contribution from other and older lands which, stand ing side by side with our exhibits, shall manifest the high and friendly regard our republic has gained among the govern ments of the earth and shall demonstrate how greatly advancing civilization has fostered and stimulated tha brotherhood of nations! In conclusion I hope I may be permit ted to suggest that our thoughts and sur roundings on this occasion should lead us to humble recognition of the Provi dence of God In all that has made ua a great nation. From our beginning as a people our course has been marked by oe- , currences and incidents so striking, so I significant and so constant that only su perstitious dullness or Intellectual blind ness will place them to the credit of luck or chance. We are all proud of our American citi zenship. Let us leave this place with this feeling stimulated by the sentiments born of the occasion. Let us appreciate more keenly than ever how vitally necessary It Is to our country's weal that every one within its citizenship should be clean uinried In political aim and aspiration, sincere and honest In his conception of our country's mission and aroused to higher and more responsive patriotism by the reflection that it Is a solemn thing to belong to a people fRvored of God.' The . Invocation was delivered by Cardinal Gibbons and the benediction by P.ishop Potter. EDWARD LEAVES KOME. Italians tilve IHut an ImprrHfclve Farewell Deiiioiixtmtlon. Pome, May L King Edward left Rome for Paris amid a tremendous farewell demonstration. The" streets were crowded, and the windows and balconies were filled with people, de tachments of troops kept back the crowds and permitted the passage of the cortege.

At the railroad station there was a large gathering of distinguished per sonages. King Edward was especially cordial in his reply to the greetings of Premier Zanardelll and Prince Colon na, the mayor of Koine, thanking them for the reception accorded him by the people of Rome, which, he said, had been really magnificent. To the pre mier the king added that he hoped the friendship of Great Britain and Italy would ever Increase. Just before the train left King Ed ward embraced and kissed King Victor Emmanuel several times, and ns the Rritish sovereign stepped on board his car the king of Italy asked to be re membered to Queen Alexandra.
