roceptlon committee under whose
enro Colonel Roosevelt spent the day.
Tho address which the ex-prcsldont
dcllvorod was heard by a great throng
of people. It was aa follows:
In traveling In Europ last spring one
thin? which especially struck mo was Hie
fact that the two fentn which made ttie
deepen t Impression abroad were the ciulso
of tho battle fleet uround the world, and
the digging of the Panama Canal. Thwe
were tho two feats to bo credited to tho.
American people during the pant decade
which had most profoundly nnd favorably
affected foreign Judgment of America
during that time. Such Judgment depends
not In tho least upon what people say
they can do, but what they actually do;
upon their willingness to meot responsi
bilities, nnd the success of their efforts to
meet them.
Must Have Efficient Navy.
Now, there In no use of a nation claim
ing to bo a great nation unless It Is pre.
Dared to play a groat pait. A nation
audi as ours cannot posMbly play a great
part In International nffalrs, cannot ex
pect to bo treated as n weight In either
tho Atlantic or tho Pacific, or to have Us
volco nn to tho Monroo doctrine, or tho
manngoment of tho Panama Cunal, heed
ed, unless It ban a ntrong and thoroughly
eftlclent navy. Within tho lost decado
tho American navy has been about
trebled In strength, nnd much more than
trebled In efficiency, duo to Its extraordi
nary progress In marksmanship and ma
neuvering. Ho for from this Incroaso In
naval strength representing on our part
either a mennco of aggression to weaker
nations or a menace of war to stronger
nations, It has told most powerfully for
pence. Everywhere In Europo the rrulso
of tho battle fleet around the world wan
ncccptcd, not only as nn oxtraordlnary
feat, reflecting tho highest honor upon
our navy, but as ono of the movements
which tended markedly to promote pcaco
ful stability In international relations. No
nation regarded tho crulso as fraught
with nny menace of hostility to Itself;
and yet every nation accepted It as a
proof that we were not only desirous
ourselves to keep tho peace, but able to
prevent the peace being broken at our
expense. No cruise In any way approach
Ins It has ever been made by any licet of
any other power; nnd the best naval
opinion abroad had been that no such
feat won possible that fs, that no such
cruise as that wo actually mado could be
undertaken by a fleet of such slzo with
out Innumoiable breakdowns and acci
dents. Tho success of the cruise, per
formed as It was without a single acci
dent. Immeasurably raised tho prestige,
not only of our fleet, hut of our Nation:
nnd was a distinct help to tho cause of
International peace.
As regards the Panama Canal. I really
think that outside nations have a Juster
ldna than our own people of the magni
tude nnd success of tho work. I wish
our pooplo realized what Is being dono on
tho Isthmus. If a mnn of lntolllconce
who had novcr left this country usked mo
whether I would advlso him to make a
short trip to Europo. or a trip to the
Panama Canal, I would, without hesita
tion, ndvlso him to so to the Pnnnma
Canal. Ho would thero see m operation
tho completing of ono of the gtent feats
of modern times Colonel Goethals and
tho men working under him nro render
ing n service to this country which enn
only bn paralleled In our past history by
Borne of the services rendered In certain
Wonderful Work on the Isthmus.
Six years ago last spring tho Ameri
can government tool: possession of tho
Isthmus. Tho first two yenrs were de
voted to tho sanitation of the Isthmus, to
assembling tho plant nnd working force,
nnd providing quarters, food, nnd water
supplies. In nil these points tho success
wan extraordinary. From one of the
plague-spots of tho globe, one of the
most unhealthy regions In tho entlro
world, the Isthmus has been turned Into
n singularly healthy place of abode, '
where tho death-rate Is small nnd where
hundreds of children nro now being
raised under as favorable rondltlons as
In most parts of tho United States. The
quarters, food, nnd water mippiy nro ex
cellent, and the plant tho best ever gath
ered for such a purpose. Active excava
tion on a large scalo did not begin until
January, 1907. Three years and a half
have gone by since then, and throe-fifths
of the total excavation has already been
accomplished. Tho amount taken out has
passed anything which previous experi
ence warranted us In believing to bo pos
sible. In 1908 nnd 1909 the monthly aver
age of rock and earth removed wns three
million cubic yards, notwithstanding the
fact that nine montlis of each year con
stituted n senson of very heavy rnlnfall.
There remains to be excavated only about
sixty million cubic yards. If wo could
Keep up tho past average of excavation,
this should be dono in twenty monms;
but It Ih Impossible to maintain such a
rntlo ns the depth Increases; for the out
put necessarily diminishes as the field of
operation narrows. Still, It Is certain (hat
such a rate can be maintained ns will
nblo the workers to finish the excava
tion considerably In advance of tho date
fixed for opening the cnnul, Janunry 1,
1915. Indeed, I ahull be surprised If the
canal cannot be opened six months, or
even a year In advance of the tlru set.
The work hns two great features: The
Culebrn Cut. which I have been consider-
Ing, nnd the grent dam at CJatitn. Tho
latter Is to Imprison the waters of tho
Chagres and other streams Into n iHko
with an area of 161 square miles This
work Is advancing steurtlly, nnd Jut as
successfully ns tho work on the Pulebra
Cut. The water which la ultlmitely to
fill tho lock Is now flowing through the
concrete spillway In tho center of the
dam, the Chagres having been diverted
from its bed and placod under complete
control. The construction of the dam has
advnnced sufficiently io convince mo en
gineers In ohnrgo of tho work of Its ab
solute stability nnd imporvlousness. The
concrete work on tho lock Is ndvanalng
so rapidly that tho first double-set nt
Clntun will be completed this coming No
vember, nnd the enslneer In chnrgo hns
snnouneed that nil tho concrete In nil tho
locks will be In place two yenrs honce.
The date of (Inal completion nnd formnl
opening of tho canal to tho commerce of
the world will be determined by the time
consumed In placing the great steel gates,
emcreeiicv dams, nml all nnnllanrrs for
operating the ducks. But thosa In charge I
of tho work announca without hesitation
thnt everything will bo finished well In
advance of January 1, 1915.
Noxt Duty Is to Fortify It.
This Is n stupendous record of achieve
ment. As n poplo wo nro rather fond of
criticising ourselves, nnd sometimes with
very great Justice; but even tho most
pessimistic critic should sometimes think
of whnt Is to our credit. Among our
assets of the past ten years will bo placed
the extraordinary ability, Integrity, and
success with which wo have handled all
the problems Inherited as the result of
the Bpanlsh war; tho way no liao han
dled ourselves in the Philippines, In Cuba,
In Porto Itlco, In Kan Domingo, and In
Panama. The cruise of the battle fleet
nround the world wns n striking proof
that we had made good with the navy;
nnd what we 'havo dono at Panama rep
resents the accomplishment of one of the
great feats of tho ngis. It Is a feat which
reflects tho highest honor upon our coun
try, and our gratitude Is due to every
man who has taken an honorable part In
any capacity In bringing about Its per
formance. Wo now havo a further duty to per
form In connection with It, and that Is to
fortify It. Wo nro In honor bound to
fortify It ourselves, and only by so doing
can wo effectively guarantee Its neutral
ity, nnd, moreover, effectively guaranteo
that It shall not bo used ngalnst us. The,
chief mntcrlal advantage cvrtalnly ono
of tho chief material advantages which
wo shall gain by Its construction Is the
way In which It will, for defensive pur
poses, double tho power of tho United
States navy. To refuse to fortify It, nnd,
above all, to consider for n moment such
on act of utter weakness and folly as to
Invite other nations to step In and guar
anteo the neutrality of this purely Ameri
can work (and thereby really to make It
certain that In the evont of war we
should find the canal used against us as
our fleets would bo forbidden to pass
through It, or else our opponents' fleots
permitted to), would bo to Incur, nnd
qulto ilghlfully, tho contempt of tho
