T , R , HUNTING
CONSIDERS IT HIS DUTY TO RUN
18 AFTER MEN IN HIGH PL *
Colonel Roosevelt Pledges the Men
Buffalo His Heartiest Efforts h
Seeking Out and Running to Earth
Crookedness In His Own Party.
Cleveland , O. , Aug. 25. Colonel
Tbcodoro Iloosovelt outlined his po
litical creed In three speeches which
hu crowded Into a upace of fifty mln-
utoa hero today.
"There nro two prime articles In
my faith , " he said. " 1 stand for jus
tice for the rich man and the poor
man alike and for the punishment of
wrong wherever or by whomever
Colonel Roosevelt arrived here at

cross-Ohio Journey , lie already having
addressed crowds at Ashtabula and
Connant. At Ilt5 : : his train left for
Toledo , where a ton-minute stop was
Five thousand people were gath
ered in and about the Union station
when the train bearing the ex-presi
dent came In.
Buffalo , N. Y. . Aug. 25. Theodore
Roosevelt pledged himself to the men
of Buffalo today to help them and all
sincere citizens to fight crookedness
wherever it was found.
"I'll help you just as I did In the
past , " he said , speaking to the Elli-
cott club , whoso guest he was at
breakfast an hour after sunrise. He
made a plea for the punishment of
crooked , grafting public officials and
the election of honest ones in their
places , a process of gradually but per
manently raising the morale of politi
cal and business life , and he said he
thought it his duty to hunt out crooks
and especially crooks in his own party.
After Crooks in His Own Party.
"I believe In party government , " he
said , "but the moment a question of
honesty is involved I recognize no
party distinctions or if I do make any
it is that it Is a little more my busi
ness to put the grafter and crook out
of public life if he belongs.to. my
party than If to another. This atti
tude demands that one's attention be
fixed not on linancial or social status
but on conduct. "
Nearly 400 members of the Ellicott
club and other citizens representing
leading professional and business in
terests and a wide variety of political
adulations awaited Mr. Roosevelt's
coming from the New York Central
station , where he had arrived from
Utlca at C:20 : in his private car Re
public , attached to a regular train.
"Bully Glad to See" Tony.
As the ex-president entered he was
cheered and "America" was sung , with
the backing of a regimental band.
Breakfast was expeditiously served
as there was less than an hour before
the time for Mr. Roosevelt's departure
for Chicago. Among those who got
an especially hearty greeting from
Mr. Roosevelt was "Tony" Gavin , a
Buffalo policeman , formerly a' "rough
rider. " The colonel shook his hand
across the table and said some pleas
ant things in which the words "bully
glad to see you" occurred.
Mr. Roosevelt made good use of the
twenty-live minutes available for his
remarks. The men who heard him ,
who noted his earnestness in dealing
with the subject of crookedness and
grafting , and who frequently broke
into tb'e speech with sharp applause
had in mind his expressions within
the last few days that "they will have
all the fight they want. "
Bouquet for Railroad Men.
When Colonel Roosevelt appeared
on the rear end of the platform at
Dunkirk , N. Y. , ho was met by a largo
gathering of railroad men.
"I have always admired the railroad
men because they have certain quail
ties I like to think of as typical ol
Americans. They know how to act
each for himself and also In combina
tion. They know how to work. They
know how to obey orders and how to
act , each on his Individuality. The
average American in our political , In
dustrial and social life must show jus
these traits. "
The constant noise of a steaming
locomotive made speaking very dif
llcult for the colonel , who protested.
Protests Against Steaming Engine. [
"It is really an outrage , " he de
clared. "I cannot talk to that engine. "
Then he told them that the engine
was the .only thing he could not talk '
against. Some of the men shouted ! (
"do them up at the convention , Ted
dy ! " Colonel Roosevelt smiled broad
ly but made no reply.
Fully 5.000 people greeted Colonel ' I
Roosevelt when his special train ar
rived in Erie at 9:28 : this morning.
The colonel spoke briefly , chlelly along )
the lines of the earlier speech he ujade
at Buffalo regarding pure wader In the
great lakes cities.
He was mot at Dunkirk by a recep
tion committee from Erie , consisting
of Congressman Arthur I * . Bates ,
Frank D. Schultz , president of the
chamber of commerce ; K. C Sturgeon ,
president of the board of trade , and
William B , Trask ,
Congressman Bates was a member
of the lower house during the seven
and one-half years tnat Roosevelt was
president and a long conversation was
held in the private car as the train
rushed through the northwestern
Pennsylvania grape bolt. At every
town and hamlet hundreds lined the
Likes to be Called "Teddy. "
"Hollo , Teddy , " was heard from the
sea of humanity that lined the station
platform when the train pulled Into
Erie and it was some time before the
colonel's voice could bo heard.
In an undertone to Congressman
, who was on the rear platform ,
African hunter said :
used to think It lowered my dig-
to have them call uio Toddy , but
. ? n know , I am getting to like it

Utlca , Aug. 25. Colonel Roosevelt

banco to stand squarely and uncom-

"I go to that convention to make the
peech exactly as it had been plan
ned , originally , and while I hope there
ivlll be sense enough to prevent any
one opposing the principles for which

t is their own affairs and so far as
. am concerned the issue shall be
absolutely clean cut. "
Fight to End on "Old Guard. "
Theodore Roosevelt served notice
, hat he would wage war without quar-
er on the "old guard" of the republi-
an party in New York state. Hav-
ug been drawn into the light , as he
says , against his will , he has detenu-
tied to pursue it to the end , win or
Mr. Roosevelt's attitude was indi-
> ated more clearly than any time by a
statement which he Issued.
The colonel said ho was going into

realization of the fact that he might

Some of Colonel Roosevelt's closest
friends in the state have told him
that they were doubtful as to the out

OSAGE INDIANS ARE RICH
Each One Worth $20,000 , They're the
Richest in the World.
Pawjuska. Okla. , Aug. 23. Test I-1
nony was given before the congres
sional committee Investigating Indian
Affairs today that each of the 2,300
Osage Indians is worth $20,000 which ,
on a per capita basis , constitutes them
the richest people in the world.
As the property Is held in restrici
tlou by the government the Indians
have used a great many lawyers , it
was stated. One attorney testified
that he represented thirtyfour claim-
ants and demanded that the govern-
inent place them on the Osage basis ,
thus giving them the right to $20,000
worth of property. The wealth of
these claimants if they are successful
will amount to $460,000.
Another attorney testified that he
had been employed to oppose the
claims on the ground that if allowed
they would decrease the wealth of the
tribe. Attorneys' fees were paid to
keep the Indians off the rolls and fees
were paid for putting them on.
A firm of attorneys declared they
were to get a contingent fee of $42,000
for securing to the Osage tribe $700-
000 said to be due to them by the gov
Roosevelt to Des Molnes.
Des Molnes , Aug. 25. Official an
nouncement was made today that
Colonel Roosevelt will be in Des
Molnes the entire day November 4 as
a guest of the Iowa state teachers' as
sociation. Colonel Roosevelt will
make four addresses , two before the
general convention at the morning and
night sessions , and two in the after
noon before two divisions of the con
POVERTY THE ROCK OF LOVE.
A Magistrate Finds That Most Couples
Quarrel About Money.
New York , Aug. 25. "Marry In
haste and repent in the police court ,
Most of the couples who take their
troubles to court married too young.
What is the right age to marry ?
Whenever a man has judgment. "
These are the views which Magis
trate Herman expressed yesterday.
Today Magistrate Frederick B. House.
gave utterance to his equally inter
esting views on the subject.
Mr. House created "ladles' day" in
the Harlem police court for the special
adjudication of the feminine wrangles
of the neighborhood.
"In my opinion it is not the youth
of the couples who bring their troubles
to the police court that causes their
unhappiness. Very early marriages
often turn out to be the happiest. Nine
tenths of the husbands and wives that
appear before me , whether they are
10 or 00 , quarrel about money.
"Man Is selfish , perhaps , and expects
the wife to dress herself and run the
house on less than her fair share of
the family Income , or the woman Is
extravagant , has no sense of wifely
responsibility , and keeps the house

while both are good , earnest young
people , and It takes only a word or two
from the magistrate to send them
home smiling and reconciled.
"You can't lay down any hard and
fast rules as to the right age to marry.
A sense of responsibility Is the most
essential quality of a good husband or

it Is his duty to make the girl he mar

Is at the root of practically all the do-

MAY PUT BACK GEORGE III.
Patriots Pulled the Statue Down and
Made It Into Bullets.
Now York , Aug. 25. A project has
been started here to restore the sto-
tue of King George HI In Bowling
Green , overlooking Now York liarbo'- .
A statue of the king was pedestaled
there once , but the patriots pulled it
down to make bullets to be used
against the king's men.
Henry ( ' . Qulnby. a lawyer and
member of tlie St. Nicholas society , is
one of the men Interested In the pro
ject. He said :
"The discussion of tlie plan for the
restoration of King George's statue Is
soinotlilng I cannot go Into now. It
would be premature. 1 might be violating
lating the confidence of several other
gentlemen who are interested in the
matter. I cannot say at this time
whether any of the historical societies f
have : ' acted officially on the scheme.
In about two weeks I may be free to
talk of the plan. "
Henry L. Bogert , a lawyer , Is see-
retary of the Holland society , whose
members revere tlie memory of Peter
Stuyvesant and other Dutch burghers
of New Amsterdam.
"Personally , " he said , "I shouldn't
suffer any great spasm of Indig
nation if they put King George's
figure back on Bowling Green. But
many other members of the Holland
society would take up arms , I guess.
Patriotic societies like the Sons ot ihe
Revolution and the Sons of the Ameri
can Revolution might take the view
that a statue once torn down because
of patriotic motives would have to bo
torn down again. I'm sure I don't
know what the friendly sons of St.
Patrick might think of it. "
It was after the -reading of the dec
laration of Independence in New York
July 9 , 1770 , that tlie revolutionists
decided that George had been pranc
ing on Ills pedestal long enough.
Ropes were cast , there were enthusi
astic whoops backed by strong pulls ,
and over went George. The bulk of
the statue was loaded that night on asleep
sloop and taken to Norwalk , Oonn.
Governor Wolcott received It. He and
a group of patriots , a-nong whom were
his own three daughters , made 42,083
bullets out of George and Ills horse.

HAT TIP TRUST GATHERS 'EM IN. s

Frederick L. Long in Harper's
Weekly : The hat-tip trust ? Yea , ver-
lly ; even so. The coat-room tip busij j
ness is as highly organized as any
of which the public is aware. With .
two or three exceptions , all the large t
hotels and restaurants in New York , t

keepers well for the privilege , hires
the t hi'.t-boys , and pays their wages. ' '
They surrender all their tips to the i 1
