THE tiMAIIA DAILY BKEi FRIDAY, AUOUST 20, 1002.
on bit visit to the encampment of ths New Hampshire Grsnd Army of the Republic hero todsy. A speclsl train cam In every few minutes during tb afternoon. Governor Chester B. Jordan and Con eressmaa Frank D. Currier, - who bad boarded the train at Concord, were with the president's party. After luncheon the president wai escortd to the ramp, where the spesklng took place. Prealdent Roosevelt waa introduced to the eterana and when he could make hlmaelf heard he delivered hie address, speaking In part aa follows: Any American who ha proper sense of the relative proportion of things must real ise that to the men who fought for the union In the dark days of the civil war there la owtng a reatr debt of gratitude than to sr.y others. Oreat were the d-eda you did and vital the need of doing them. Many were the lessons tauaht ths rest of us. both bv what -you accomplished In the war and by the way In which, when the war was over, you turned to the work of peace with the earns spirit which had 1-1 you to triumph en the tented flMe. To you alone It was given to face with vic torious valor the one crbns In which not merely the nations well being, but the nation's life waa at stake. Solve One Great Prewlem. It waa given to you to solve the one rroblem whlrh If not solved meant death or our people. All of the work of the .men who founded this republic would have gone for nothing had you not done your part well. It would have profited little to ua or to mankind at large If the experiment- bf free government by the people and for the people had been founded upon this conti nent only to end In bloody wreck on the question of slavery. You saved the union and you freed the slave and thereby freed the elavee after one of the worat of all thrnllrinma There waa no money reward for what you I did. There waa hardly one of you who did not ourln those four years receive rar less than he could have earned in safety at home. But you were driven to your work by the lash of yojr own hearts. Tou were spurred onward by the lift which only comes to a people of great and generous soul. Tou felt Instinctively that there were causes far greater than anything that had to do merely wltn wealth or bodily Well being. You were willing to wager all for the prize of death in righteous war. We are now In a time of abundance and peace and not in time of war. But woe to ua If In peace we do not have Ideals as lofty ssyojrs and '. we do not live up to them as you lived up to yours in the dark days of defeat and In the golden hour of triumph. Conaradeshls) Witts Gallant Oppoaeats. Among the greatest benefits of what you did was the fact that you have also left us the sight of hearty aiid loyal comradeship witn your gaitunt opponents wno in ngnting for what they consciously deemed to be right fought against ths stars In their courses. Besides what you actually did, besides the reunited country; which we have received at your hands, we have received also the lesson of the doing of the deed. There is great need now,' if not In degree, at least In kind, of the spirit that you showed. We need In order to successfully face the dim- cult and complex problems of our Industrial civilisation an the courage and loyalty and all the faith and clear-sighted sanity and purpose which are at our command. Above all, we need to lea rn aright and to apply the great lesson of brotherhood which you taught and practiced in the four years that began with Bumpter and ended witn Appomattox. in tne old simple America of our forefathers ths America which still for our good fortune exlHls In country - districts there was comparative freedom from certain dangera to which the country as a whole .1 now necessarily ex posed. The growth of great cltlea and of In dividual and corporate fortunes the tend ency hi great cities to divide men Into groups and classes naturally diminishes the realization of that essential underlying brotherhood which ongnt to oe aeep in the heart of every American. Looking Into the mists of the future, we see problems looming up before us. We can solve those problems aright only If we keep constantly In mind that each must work for all and 'all for' each. In other words, we need to feel In our being the sense of brotherhood. We have Just brought to a conclusion a war in the far east a war which aprang up as a sequel to our short struggle with Spain. The army which has done its work so well In the Philippine Islands haa had a ,tsk which waa small, Indeed, compared with yours, but which,,. nevertheless, was fraught vlth hardship ana difficulty pecu- I Marly Its own. The men who. after three I years of painful, harassing, incredibly laborious Warfare In the tropical Jungles against d treacherous and savage foe, have nnauy . brought peace and order and civil government In the Philippines, are your sons, your successors. i They claim your ahars in the glory by Inheritance, and by their valor and by their steadfael endurance have added new luster to that glory. They have been oruelly maligned, even by some who should have known better. In an army (In the best army) and especially in an army doing its work under such well nigh intolerable conditions as those which confronted our troops In the Philippines, there are bound to be Instances of occasional wrong doing. Temptatloa to Retaliate. The temptation to retaliate for the fear ful cruelties of a savage foe Is very great ana now ana tnen It has been yielded to. There have been a few and only a few such Instances In the Philippines and pun ishment has been meted out with unflinch ing Justice 4o the offMiiflers. But the real marvel Is ' that urdep such conditions there should have been so little wrong doing, as time goes-by snd we get our sense of proportion 'of things these In ' stances Will be foraotten. There will re main for all time pages on our honor roll of history, because of what has been done for the nation in the Philippines. Our of ficers and men on the march and In battle showed themselves noL unworthy of you, ths men of the great war. They have added to the memories of which Americans are proud and by their labor they have brought the peaceful light of civilisation Into one oi tne worm s darn places. We feel that we have a right to demand the support of all aood citizens for the armv In th Phil. Ipplneo because of what It haa done, and ws ask It also for ths civil officers of the gov ernment, who with faithful toll and wisdom are building a structure of orderly liberty sn the ground- made ready for them hv h ' soldierly courage of ths troops wearing the ' American uiuiorm. At tho eonoluslon of his address the pres Idsnt returned to his train and started back to Concord. Freaekei Btroasioalty at Coaeord. CONCORD. N. H. Aug. 28. The presl lent's special reached Concord at I o'clock tnd was greeted with a salute of twenty tne guns. A largo crowd had gathered at ths station and voiced Its welcome in hearty beers. Ths party drove to the stats fair grounds, which tho persldent entered to ths sound of a second presldsntlal salute. A stranger who attempted to sbaks hsnds with the president was hustled away by the secret servics officials. Arriving at tho stags from which he was to speak, the president received the greatest ovation of the day. Ho said. In part In this life, as a rule, the Job that la eaay to do la not very well worth dolna. Who are the heroes of this nation T Who are the men whom you think of at once? Washington and Lincoln. And whyT Lld either lead a life of ease? Because each one or tliwm all his daya worked for him- u ana womea lor others; because one faced death oa a score of stricken fields and one met It ac the hands of an aaaas aln for the country s aake. They are the Awn whom America delights to honor; they and these like them. There haa never been a man In our history who leads a life of ease whose life Is worth remembering. Now believe me. I believe in holidays: I peiieve in Playing, Out I believe In playing hard while you play, and don't make a Dusineaa or n. All we have a right to expect of govern ment is that It will see that the cards ars not stacked, and If It sees to that then ws will stride by ths deal.

Bennett bad been rowing the young women about the lake and the party was returning to the sanitarium villa, about 10 o'clock, Just as ths little steamer Welcome was leaving ths dock with an excursion party. In some as yet unexplained way Welcome ran the rowboat down. Ths small boat was struck amidships and the hull crushed. All ths occupants were thrown into the water. .

All of the victims except Miss Richard were members of the new class of nurses at ths sanitarium. STRIKE BECOMES WAR (Continued from First Page.) srnor White today gave out the following statement: , I ordered the troops sent because tho sheriff of Fsyette county msde a formal demand In. writing upon me and came In person to see me, stating that he was pow erless, with a posee, to control the situa tion, because repeated attempts at assassi nation have been made, several men havd been assaulted and wounded and conditions exist, owing to the topography of the coun try and the numerous operations, which make It Impossible for him to effectively repress disorder. I felt It my duty to re spond to the rail of the sheriff for aid. be lieving that he had exhausted every effort and tried to do his full duty. I have Instructed my private secretary, who accompanies the troops to the New River coal fields, to explicitly state to all concerned that the militia is sent only to suppress lawlessness and Irt protect life and property, and not for the numose of breaking the strike, nor to act In any sense as guards or policemen for any coal oper ator. My purpose is to enforce the laws of the state. Personally. I regret very much the ne cessity for taking this step, but when called upon by the chief law officer of the county for aid there Is no other -alternative but to render such assistance aa tho militia arm. of the government can give. Sheriff Still. Alaraaed. THURMOND. W. Va.. Aug. 28. Every thing Is qulst In the New River coal Held to night and has been qulst throughout ths day, save 'a littU skirmish at Caperton In which twenty or more shots were fired, but no ode Injured. Tho entire Second regi ment, state troops, arrived here this even ing, and tonight is being distributed about various coal operations where trouble re sulted. Sheriff Daniel thinks that more serious trouble will soon follow. He says the strik ers are becoming more determined and that it was absolutely Impossible for him to cope ith tho situation. Almost every mine on the Kanawha and New rivers is being op erated on a small scale. In these fields probably 2,000 miners are at work and 6,000 or 8,000 Idle. Considerable property baa al ready been destroyed and it is believed that tho sending of troops will tend to enrage ths strikers more than ever and .bloodshed may soon result. The operators are deter mined and state emphatically that they have no Intention of conceding a single demand made by ths strikers. Calls Oat Troops. CHARLESTON, W.. Va.,Aug. 28. Gov ernor White has ordered the Second regi ment of tbs Wes.t Virginia National Guard to tho Nsw River district, not, as hs says, to settle the strike, but to protect life and property. Colonel Morrison at Tark- sraburg, .was given orders early in ths morning to call out his regiment and pro ceed by special train to Thurmond, which will bs ths headquarters. The cause fur this action by ths governor is ths appeal of Sheriff Daniel of Fayette county for as sistance on tho ground that many cltisens rsfuss to respond to his summons to act as deputies to enable htm to execute ths or ders of tho court and his declaration that ha is powerless to protect life and property. Hs communicated with the governor yes terday when his deputies were fired on la tho .vicinity of Red Ash, where they were svlcting miners, who ars strikers and who ars In arrsars for rent. ROANOKE.

Tbs chances for an early resumption of ths mines In the anthracite coal fields, on ths sams seals as they were operated previous to ths strike of the mine workers, sre not very good, according to the outlook here. The superintendents of the coal companies practically admit that at the present rate there is no chance of getting the collieries open for many weeks. Several of ths collieries have been alerted, but not ons Is working at anything like Its capacity. At each of, these mines. It is ed mitted by the companies, they hsve only about 100 men st work, but the claim Is made that they are getting more every day. Tbs collieries working are the Oxford, of the People's Cosl company; ths Von Storch snd Dickson, of the Delaware Ht'dson; the Cayuga, Dodge-and Hampton of the Delaware, Lackawanna Western, In this city, and ths Avondale, of the latter com pany, at Kingston. Ths normal tonnage of these mints during regular working time Is 1,000 tons per day, white at present they are turning out about S00 tons. , While sn aversgs of 1,000 tons of mined coal Is being daily prepared in the district, the average for 1900, when but 17 days were worked during the year, was 28,989 tons per day.

PAYS ' FOR BOXERS' MISCHIEF . :i State Department Will Distribute First Installment of Chinese' In-" ' demntty Fsadii - -' WASHINGTON, Aug. 28. The State de partment has decided to begin at once the distribution of the first Installment of the Chinese Indemnity funds, amounting to about 1480,000, among ths missionary so cietleej and individuals who suffered from the Boxer uprising. The claims commls slon, composed of Minister Conger, Secre tary Balnbridge and United States Consul Ragsdale, has adopted the plan of report ing upon the merits of the. claims in in stallments instead of making one report at the end of the investigation. Their first report, which has Just been received, passes upon sixty claims out of a total of about 250. These sixty ' claims amount in the aggregate to about $800,000, so the first In stallment of the Chinese indemnity will not be large enough to defray tbat total. In stead of waiting until sufficient money is at hand for this purpose, the acting secretary of the department, Mr. Van Dyke, recom mended that a payment of 25. per cent be made to each of these claimants immedi ately and this plan haa been adopted by the department. It Is expected that the total of the claims allowed will amount to about 12.500,000. OIL SEEMS GOOD SHIP FUEL Unofficial Statement Is Made that Steamer Mariposa's Test Was tat- '.
