Forty Thousand Persons Gather
Around Chief Magistrate to Hear
Him Speak All Business Houses
Close for Two Hours.
Mobile. Ala.. Oqt. 24. That peace
hath her victories no Icbb renowned
than war wan never better exemplified
than in the reception of President
Itooscvclt during his two hours' Btay
in Mobile. There waB a general clos
ing of all business houses and along
the route of the procession, from the
Vnlon depot to the stand on Ulcnvlllc
equarc, where the reception cere
monies took place, the residences and
Mores were covered with decorations
in the national colors. The sidewalks
and streets along Government street
were packed with humanity nnd at
McOIll Institute, Ilarcon academy and
one or two other points, hundreds of
children were massed, who sang na
tional anthems and songB as the pro
rusKirin nnnspil. Cheer after cheer
rent the air. It Is estimated that by
the time the president began his nd
dress, there was a crowd numbering
40,000 people within the sound of his
voice. He appeared to be overwhelmed
with pleasure at the spontaneity of
bis reception. His seat was on an
elevated duls on a chair, which was
liullt by the students of a technical
school in .lapan. Back of the chair
was an enormous stuffed bear, eight
feet tall, bearing In Its mouth a Moral
Independence bell and above Its head
n white dove holding a streamer, on
which was the Inscription: "Blessed
Is the Peacemaker." The bear was
killed in a hunting expedition by his
mnjosty, Alexander 11, of Russia in
President Roosevelt was cheered na
lio arose to speak. He thanked the
people for their mngnlflcent reception
and Bpoke special words of greeting
to tho confederate veterans, who
formed a portion of his escort. Re
ferring to the Panama canal, tho prcBl
dent said he did his best to bring
nbout itB completion for the benefit of
the whole people, but particularly for
the benefit of the gulf states. Orig
inally, he said, he favored the Nica
ragua route, but when It was demon
strated that It must be the Panama
canal or nothing, he favored the Pan
ama route, as he wanted to see tho
canal built, nnd one will be built. Not
withstanding the efforts of certain
people, who are striving by the cir
culation of false rumors or other meth
ods to delay the construction of the
canal, the president said thoy will be
dinappointod, for there is going to bo
a canal. Health conditions on the
isthmus, he aald, are better now than
ever before. The president said: "Ir
we build the canal, wo must protect it
and police It ourselves. We mint
therefore bring up nnd keep our navy
to the highest point of efficiency. It
is not necessary that we should havo
n particularly lnrgo navy, but It Is nec
essary that, ship Tor ship, It should be
a little the best In the world."
President Roosevelt spent the night
