aave it, la Theodore Roosevelt with
his party of Hon hunters. They are
aboard the Hamburg-American line
steamer Hamburg, which cast off her
lines from her Hoboken pier this morn
ing and to the music of the whistles
of numerous ferryboats, tugs and' oth
er vessels sailed down the bay with
her distinguished passenger.

Crowd on the Pier.
The long pier to which the Hamburg
was moored was jammed this morn
ing with persons gathered' to see tho
Roosevelt party sail. They made the
pier ring with their cheers for the'
voyager from the time of his arrival
from New York city until the Ham
burg sailed. He was mightily pleased
with the reception and showed his
gratification by his smiles and the fre
quency with which be lifted his hat la
response to greetings. To a request
for a formal statement of his plan;
Mr. Roosevelt returned a smiling de
nial. "It has all been printed over and
over again," he said, "and I have noth
ing to say."
Among the most enthusiastic of the
cheering crowd when the Hamburg
moved slowly away from her pier was
a small boy, who had crowded to the
very limit permitted by the authorities
of the steamship line. His last cry,
"Goodby, Teddy; take care of your
self!" brought a smile even to the face
of the ex-president, who seemed then
a little tired of smiling.
About seveuly-five friends and ad
mirers of Mr. Roosevelt escorted him
out to sea on board the big ocean go
ing tug John J. Tlmmlns, as guests
of James S. Clarkson, surveyor of the
port. An official character was given
to the tug's trip by the presence on
board of Captain Archibald Butt, mili

along as the representative of the
Two Fine Ships Carry Party.
