THE PEOPLE'S JOURNA VOL 12.-NO. 12. PICKENS, S. C., THURSDAY, AP~RIL 17, 1Q02 ONE DOLLAR A YEAR PRESIDENT ROOSEVE Great Crowds Greet Tribute To The Sout Presentation of Swor The welcome to the President of the United States in the Queen City of the South was not only notable for the royal entertainment by a most gener ous host, but for the gracious and be coming utterances of the distinguished guest. The Presidential party was met at Summerville by the special commit tee, headed by Mayor Smyth, who were invited aboard the special train, which in a short time reached a station fIve miles north of Charleston, where trolley cars were in waiting to speed the guests to Chicora Park, near the site of the naval station soon to be built, where the revenue cutter Algonquin was lying at the wharf. The President, the con mittee and their other guests went through the park while salutes were being fired in honor of their arrival, and then boarded the revenue cutter for a sail down the river and around the harbor. The (lay was spent on the water and the President made a visit to Fort Sumter, when there was a run up the Ashley, and in returning as the Algonquin passed the cruiser Cincii nati and the training ships, a salute was fired in honor of the President. Boyce's wharf was reached at 4.30 o'clock, where carriages were in wait ing to take the party to the St. John's1 Hotel. The banquet tenlereft to I'e.-ident, Roosevelt at the Chart ion nhote i was t a fitting close to a (lay full or meiden, I and served to gather together men I prominent in the affairs o1 the State, i having solely in mind a greetiog to the President which would prove the sin- t cerity and the warmth of feeling ex isting for him as the chief executive of the nation. The banquet hall was a I bower of roses, pinks and smilax, ar- t tistically arranged, while loosely strewn < over the tables were thousands of' violets, whose. fragrance could only 0 but suggest that spri ngtime hald arrived. I Over Uhree hundred specially invited 1 guests weie present and the President 3 was at his best. In a few well chosen 3 remarks Mayor Smyth welcomed Presi- r dent loosevelt to Charleston, whose 8 response was listened to with the 1: closest attention and which were in- 3 terrupted by loutd and continuous ap- I plause. The Presiden lt rem irks were as L follows t " Mr. Mayor, and you, my hosts and . my fellow American citizen : (Great a applause.) I should indeed be but a c poor American myself if I were not deeply touched and gratifled by the way you have greeted me today, m this 8 your beautiful city ; and of course 1 8 feel at home here. (Applause.) I 8 think that an American who is worth 11 his salt has the right, to feel at home t in every part of the United States (Applause.) " Around this table I see many men who took part in the great war. The war in which the younger among us here took part was a very little one r because it didn't have to be any big. q ger. (Applause.) But it had one thor- , oughily good effect ; it put the cap on the structure that had been building c while we were almost unconscious of it, and it taught, us how thoroughly at e one we were. When we got through; that war it (lid not make a bit of dif- ~ erenco to us whether it was an admiral t who came from Vermiont, or a lieuten- ~ ant who came from Alabama (ap- a plause,) if the man had done his duty inm such shape as to make irs each feelI an even more generous thrill of pride ~ in our common iiationality. The dlebt tha.t we owedl him had hrtth to do with thre section from which lie camce. (Applause.) "Arnd now, a special word1 to you of Charleston and of South Carolina. .iust 1~2 years ago when [ first, went to Washington to take part in govern mental work I was immedliately thrown into singularly close contact and in tinhacy with a Souith Carolinrian. It was my good fortune to work with lin. for three years and for the nrine years since andl for as long as 1 shall con tirnue to b)e in public life, it, will be to rme ever a spur to try to do decent, dluty for the republic, becaurse I have been thrown intimately in contact wit~h as fearless arid as highmirinded a pumblic servant as this country has ever had, my old friend, your former GOvernior, 11lugh Thompson. (Great appllaurse.) "And from what I have known of you and1 of your representatives it, was mn no sense a surprise, but it was a keen pleasure to be gr'eetedl with the hearty a nd generous hospital it3-, the more thrari hearty and genierous hiospt -tality which you have shown rue today. (Applaue.) ."IThe welfare of any p~art of thuis counrtry is mi a certain sense an irndex of the welfare of all, andl 1 think, gern - tiemnen, that on the average as we all tend to go urp, it seems to be a little better to go urmformly rather than at a shmarper gait, for thre time being, arnd then dlowrn and tilern up again andl then dlown. South Carolina sceems during the last, two dhecades to have dintitely '.enrtecred uploni the piathi of stcadly pro * gress in things niaterial as well as in other things. 1 wasn much struck in looking over somne of the ligurres of the Icensus qurite recenrtly p~ubhlied, to sel the astorinshiing progress that hras been made hree in your State. I was pro. p~aredl to see that, thre values of your farri products had risen as they have, a little over 25i per cent. I was prc-i p~aredl to see that, your farms themselves LT IN CHARLESTON. the Chief Magistrate. 1 In War And Peace. d to Micah Jenkins. had increased in a still larger propor tion ; that the value of your lands and buildings had grown up, but I did not realize the way in which your manufac turing enterprises had increased, both as shown in the fact that your manfac turing products had gone up over 130 per cent.; that for instance the number of spindles had about quadrupled, from E less than half a million to more than two million in the State. I did not realize that the wages paid out had in- r creased 75 per cent. Gentlemen, you 8 talk of progress in the far West, but I p think South Carolina can give points r to some of the States. (Applause.) I i think that with such a record for the t previous decade you were well war ranted upon insisting on holding your i E'xposition here. (Applause.) 0 "And gentlemen, I was very glad 1 ,hat in arranging for your Hxposition v you not only took in the Southern I itates but that you specially included c ,he islands lying south of the United a states, those islands with which the U 3vents of the last few years have made t t evident that we are bound in the t *uture to have closer relations.

(Loud applause and hieerb.) The President was followed by Gov. IcSweeney, who prefaced his prepared P pecch by a few words in which he as uired the President that lie was as afe from bodily harm in(South Caro- b na as lie was in Washington. Con nuing he said: n GOV. Mw'%-:NIY's SPEECI, a Governor Miles B. McSweeney, of o outh Carolina, was then introduced 11 nd made a very happy and cloquent P p)ecch. The Governor first paid his A aspects to the President of the United S tates, and assured him that he was v safe in the hearts andl thoughts of .1 Lie people of tis State." The (-ov-. hi rnor then spoke as followB: I "'1The history of man is a series of 0 reaL, pulse beats, whose flood over- p thelms his future and fixes his life. v like the dlammed torrent on a mnoun- y sin sitie, it b)reaks the conservatism a hat holds it stagnani, for generations y ud Iloods the world with its sweep.

"Civil liberty and religious freedom have been lalced ink our keeping as a trust, aiid it, is our diuty to be faithful to thatL tiust and miove oni and upward until the peo0ples of all hauds shall en joy the same blessings which are ours. Threads of steeli have indend knit us close together and now We know no North and nio South, no East andl no West, but hand ini hand we are striving for the uplifting and betterment of man kind. " I want to say in this presence, and in the presceCiC of the Presidecnt of the U~nitedl States, that while we may not agree on many questions of p)olicy, that we are all American citizens andl the boys of the South will resp)ond~ to the call of their country, which is the call of duty, as quickly and readhily as those of any other section. When four years ago America ' lot slip the dogs of war ' and sent her armies anid navies t~o drive the tyrant from 'Cuha's wateut shores, together 'in the gloom of the gory trenches, and the ramriparts wrapt in flame ' stood the sons of the f rozen North who wore the blue, with those of the sunny South who wore the gray, to defend the honor of their common country. Side by side and shoulder to shoulder they fought, till the broken power of Spain in the Western world attested the fact that the men who made and withstood Pickett's charge at Gettysburg could clasp hands over the graves of their fallen heroes and together shed their blood in defense of human rights and their country's ause. It was a Southern boy who first planted the Stars and Stripes on for 3ign soil, it was a Southern boy who irst gave up his fair young life in this :ause, and the cold still form of hn ign Bagley, wrapt about with the ilken folds of his country's flag, was aid to rest I maid the lanentations of a eunited people.' And in the self-same epulchres where lie the braves who ;ave their lives in that conflict, is bur ied the last remnant of any antagon im which might have existed be weeln tile sections. "I am glad that President Roosevelt as come to this grand old city, that lie may see and know us as we are. That .e may know and realize that though re may not agree in politics, we know ow to welcome the President of our omumon country. That lie may know nd appreciate what Southern hospi dity means and right here in Charles : lie will find the highest type of ris old time Southern hospitality. Ve hope that his coning will be bene cial to all of us." X-UOV ENOn nU0ir 8. THOMPSON. Mayor Smyth briefly introduced )rmer Governor Hugh S. Thompson ad spoke of him as the friend and ad tirer of the President. Governor 'hompson was received with much ap lause by his many South Carolina ad tirers and when lie arose there was nother round of applause, in which 1e President joined. Governor Thompson said that when e looked around and icognized his iany old friends it was rather dillicult >r him to realize that lie had been in [ew York for ten years, Ile pleas ntly said that lie begged to differ with lovernor McSweeney as to his rank i the Richland Volunteers, and sug. estea that in the days when the club ras organized it was dangerous to be nown as captain, but that the position ,as first known as president of the tub, and that it was only after the reat HIampton redecmed the State that e was the captain of the Richland Vol-i nteers. (Great applause for H1amp - t m. ) Ile said that when the President ent around the harbor lie asked about ie various places of interest. The resident asked about many details of ( ie fighting around Charleston and ex ressed familiatity with the magnifl ant fighting of Stephen Elliot, John [itchel, Hluguenin, Alfred Rhett, T. L. Wagener an(1 others in this har or, antd it also reminded him of the ,mark Lincoln once made in com ienting upon the desperate fighting Gettysburg. An oflicer, in pointing I ut the line of battle, remarked: t Americans held theie lines," and I resident Lincoln replied: " Yes, and .mericans charged these lines." uch was the fighting here and such ,as the spirit in which President t oosevelt viewed the fighting in this arbor. It was as an American that the 'resident looked at the Amiericapism1 f thme armies of the South, an~t their atriotism was a tribute to American alor. Governor Thompson spoke 'ith feeling of the trials of Charleston nd said that through it all the city 'as always invincible. (Applause.) For three years hie was intimately ssociated with the President, in the tvil service commissioni, and at no me during these years did he ever car him express a sentiment not rorthy of the highest p~atriotism and in very way fit to be the President of the Jnited States. Not very many years go, as president of the Southern So iety in Newv York, lhe p~resented the 13n. Trheodlore Rloosevelt,, and1( spoke, f him as a son of Holland, New' cork and1 Georgia. His subject was Vashinmgton and lie did not then hiink that he would so soon till lie place Washinigton once occupied, ,nd that lie would niow have to ini rodluce him as the Hon. Theodore loosevelt, of Holland andl the Unitedl states. (M uch applause.) President toosevelt represenitedl the best blood( >f the North and South, and rounded~ >ff his little talk by saying that the 'resident's visit, here in many ways 'ecalledl Chase's great saying that thus &as a Union of indestructible States me flag, one country, onie destiny. 'Applause.) Cap t.W Wagener, G4ov.

We 3ed to build a higher life upon it as a iundationl; but we can build little deed unless this foundation of pros rity is deep and broad.
