Washington, June F. Ono hundred
confederate veterans from Tennessee,
carrying the stars and bars, were de
nied ndmlsslon to tho United States
capltol until they had lowered their
Hag and disarmed. The old soldiers
came to Washington from Richmond,
nnd after visiting the white houso
marched down Pennsylvania avenue
to the capltol. The capltol police in
formed them that they would not be
allowed admission to the capitol only
ns private citizens and not as an or
ganized body. Congressman Gaines
of Tennessee, who accompanied the
veterans, entered protest. The police,
however, insisted that the veterans
must break ranks and disarm before
entering the building. Finally this
was done nnd the old soldiers were
shown through the capitol.

PARMER REAL THING
ROOSEVELT DISCUSSES NEED OF
Tillers of Soil Urged to Organize to
Protect Their Interests Says Farm
er and His Wife Should Raise Chll-(
dren as Well as Crops.
Lansing, Mich., June 1. After a
Etrenuous six hours in the state cap
Hal, during which he made three ad
dresses and held a reception at the
state capitol, President Roosevelt left
for Washington. No untoward inci
dent happened during the president's
visit, and nolhlng occurred which in
any way excited the suspicions of the
scores of police officers in the city.
At the agricultural college President
Roosevelt spoke to 25,000 people from
a strand erected on a little knoll at the
head of tho campus. Seated on
benches immediately before the stand
were students of tho college and bun-'
dreds of alumni, who have been at
tending the semi-centennial celebra
tion of the founding of the college
Standing on the turf behind were
thousands of people from this and oth
er Michigan cities.
The presidnet was given the clos
est attention throughout his address
and was frequently interrupted by up-!
plause. He interjected informal re-' recovery, u.iu promts .s siow. maim
marks and advice at several places, ' acturlnB plants are producing at full
bringing a great round of laughter and
cheers when he turned toward a dozen
young women In the graduating class
and snld: "I believe that you young
ladies will make first class farmers'
wives and I heartily congratulate the
farmers of the future on the unexam
pled prospects before them."
The president also interjected a
plea for the paying of proper respect
for manual labor. "I sliall he very dis
appointed In you boys here," he said,
to the graduating class, "if you cannot
work with your hands and are afraid
to have your working clothes look as
though you did work."
At the conclusion of the president's
address the graduating class filed
across the platform and the president
presented them their diplomas. Hon
orary degrees were conferred upon a
number of distinguished visitors, in
cluding Gifford Plnchot, Secretary
Wilson and President Angell.
Address of the President.
President Roosevelt, in beginning
his address, paid a high compliment
to agricultuiul schools. Ho spoke of
the lack of industrial training hitherto
existing and commended tho educa
tion that fits a man lor the farm.
Speaking of cooperation, he said:
"Farmers must learn tho vital need
of co-operation with ono another.
Next to this comes co-operation with
tho government, and the government
can best give Its aid through associa
tions of farmers rather than through
the individual farmer; for there Is no
greater agricultural problom than that
of delivering to the farmer the large
body of agricultural knowledge which
has been accumulated by the national
limi,,. ...! t .- l.. I

must bo able to combine among them
selves, as the moat efficient means of
protecting their Industry from the
highly orgnnlzed interests which now
surround them on every side. A vast
flold Is open for work by co-operative
associations of farmers In dealing with
tho relation of tho farm to transporta
tion nnd to the distribution and manu
facture of raw materials. It Ib only
through such combination that Amer
ican farmers can develop to the full
their economic and social power.
"All ovor tho country there is a con
stant complaint of paucity of farm la

all tho features, of thiaquestlonc I
Kcsslcr In St. Louis Republic
would like to point out that you can

kind, of labor if you offer employment
only for a few months, for no man

idleness for half the year. And most
Important of all, I want to say a spe-
I clal word on behalf of the one who Is
I too often the very hardest worked la-
borcr on the farm-thc farmer's wife
Reform, like charity, while it should
not end at home, should certainly be
gin there; and the man, whether ho
lives on a farm or in a town, who Is
anxious to see better social and eco
nomic conditions prevail through the '
country at large, should be exceeding
ly careful that they prevail first as re
gards his own womankind. The best
crop is the crop of children; the best
products of the farm are the men and
women raised thereon."

New York, June 1. R. G. Dun's &
Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says:
Seasonable merchandise goes Into dis
