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
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
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
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.

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.
. Miss Eyock managed to catch hold of the
overturned boat and hung to it until she
was rescued by a person who hsd witnessed
the accident and. come out In boat. In
a short time the bodies of Miss Brady and
Miss Richard were found floating on the
water. They had evidently been killed by
the collision or else they would hare sunk
as did their companions.
Dragging for the bodies of ths others
was immediately, begun and at 2:S0 all
had been recovered and were brought to
this city. All of the victims except Miss
Richard were members of the new class
of nurses at ths sanitarium.

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.

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.

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.

ROANOKE. Va., Aug. 28. A special to
the Times from Bluefleld, W. Vs., says:
Thers Is considerable excitement on
Crans crsek and Simmons creek over the
recent shootings. This morning John
Ruble, a blacksmith employed by tbs Bag
amors Coal and Coks company, was shot
by striking miners and killed. . Reports
were current during tbs day that a num
ber of guards bad been killed and wounded
by the strikers, but investigation provss
that Rubls was tbs only man killed. Ruble,
In company with Barney Shumate of this
city, who had been employed as a guard,
left the company stors to go to a point
on ths works to stand guard, as the com
pany feared a visit from a mob. EnrouU
they wero Bred on aad Ruble fell. Shu
mate was armed with a rifle and opened

PITT8TON, Pa.. Aug. 24. 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

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

PITTSBURG, Kan., Aug. 28. After a con
ference lasting seventy-live days the union
miners and union operators of district 14
havs reached a settlement. The contract
agreed upon Is practically the same aa
that of last year, although the miners se
cured a few unimportant concessions. It
is now believed that all differences be
tween the miners and operators have been
adjusted and that all danger of a strike
has been averted.
Silver Party and Democrats Have Se

This practically completes the labor of
both conventions, and all that remains to

The fight for United 8tates senator prom
ises to be a hard fought battle between tho
republican and fusion parties. Thomas P;
Haley has been a resident of Nevada for

of trust and lienor. For more than fifteen
years he has been United States Judge for
the district of Nevada. Francis G. New

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.

WASHINGTON. Aug. 28. Sfcretary Shiw
has Issued the following circular regarding
ths free entry of personal effects under the
act of 1897:
"To collectors Vnd other officers of the

The langusge employed In the circular re

Is there anything In the circular to war
rant the exemption of merchandise as such
from duties. The statute uses this lan
guage: 'Wearing apparel,-articles of per-
sonal adornment, toilet articles and' similar
personal effects.' -' For soms years it was
held tbat similar peraonal effects In order
to be exempt must be similar to wearing
apparel, or similar to articles of personal
adornment, or similar to toilet articles.
The department etUl , holds thst exempt
articles must In a sense beslmllsr that
Is, they must be of the same general class
of articles as tourists ordinarily purchase
abroad. ,
The 'difficulty, It will be seen, lies In
applying these rules In the light of Wis
statutes to pfcrtlcutar cases, snd it Is the
Intention, to clothe the customs officers with
soma measure of discretion. A dress pat

a bolt of dress gpods Is merchandise. A

The" secretary also Issued the following
Instructions to ths collector of castoms at
New Tork In the matter of relmported foreign-
goods: - -
Sir-1! am In receipt of your letter of the
25th calling attention to the department's
letter of August 7, 902. relative to the re
importation of an -automobile and suggest
ing that certain Individuals are seeking to
have the rule applied to merchandise. Thie
was not the Intention. The object of the
ruling Is to relieve tourists from the sec
ond payment of duty on wearing apparel,
articles of personal adornment and other
personal and household effects appropriate
to their Journey. It must not be extended
to merchandise. The department recog
nises the possible danger of this ruling
