The Colonel Finished His Kansas In

Missouri He Summarily Changed
the Committee's Schedule.
Kansas City , Sept. 1. Speaking to
nn audience composed chiefly of workIng -
Ing men In this city , Colonel Theodore
Hoosevelt today heartily endorsed the
passage of a federal working man's
compensation act. This Is one of the
chief planks of the Kansas state plat
form recently adopted.
Kansas City , Sept. 1. Colonel
Hoosevelt ended his Kansas Invasion
with an address In Kansas City , Kan. ,
shortly after 11 o'clock this morning
. and then crossed the Knw river to

| The ex-president's train arrived In
Argentine , Kan. , from Lawrence at
10:150 : o'clock. The colonel was taken
by motor to the place where he spoke
and after a short address was rushed
back to his train and brought to the
union depot here.
I As the only point at which his train
'stops | in Missouri on his present trip
thousands of people from all parts of
Missouri and the southwest have Jour
neyed here to greet him. Every hotel
was jammed with visitors last night
and this morning hours before his spe
cial train was due to arrive , the sta
tion and the streets along which the
parade passed , were lined.
Just what the colonel will do this
afternoon Is difficult to determine.
His stop here Is to be between 12:15 :
and 10 p. in. The reception committee
had planned a complete program'
wherby , If everything went off per ( "
schedule , the ex-president would have ,
one hour , between 5:30 : and 6:30 : ,
o'clock , to himself. Every other min .
ute was taken up with speeches , re-1
ceptlons and motor rides. One of the
chief events on the program was to
be a ride of twenty-six miles by motor
over the city's boulevard system.
T. R. Changes Their Plans.
But last night , at the colonel's re
quest , a message was sent to the com
mercial club here asking the. members
to arrange for the ex-president to
visit the county fair at Independence ,
Mo. , twelve miles east of here and
also to grant him as much time to
rest as possible. Futile efforts were
made by commercial club members to
get Into communication with the ex-
president and then It was decided to
leave the matter to Hoosevelt upon
his arrival today , changing the pro
gram to suit his wishes.
Whatever happens , however , it is
known the following will take place.
The colonel will be given a lunch
eon at the Baltimore hotel at 1 o'clock
and he will make an Informal talk
At 3:30 : o'clock he will address 1,600
pupils at the West port high school.
Officers of the commercial club will
tender a dinner to the colonel nt 6
At 8 o'clock he will speak In con
From Kansas City Hoosevelt will go
via th.e Chicago , Bujllngton and
Qulncy railroad to Omaha.
Frock Coats and Silk Hats.
Every attempt Is being made to
make the visit of the ex-president as
Informal as possible. The city is dec
orated in American flags not bunt
ing , because the reception committee
frowned upon this as being "cheap. "
Guests invited to the luncheon have
been advised It will be necessary for
them to wear frock coats and silk
hats. The colonel will shake hands
with them as they enter the banquet
room. The rule of "first come , first
served will hold at convention hall.
No seats have been reserved for any
one.Many cowboys and rough riders are
mingling with the crowd here. The

colonel's escort upon his arrival here.

The Vice President Says That He Is
Not Reading Anybody Out of the

Sinners Back Into the Fold.
Enid , Okla. . Sept. 1. On the trip

fants In arms and they saw Mr. Slier-
man with coat off and suspenders
"These are twins , " said one young
woman , who held up two babies.
"Well , " responded Mr. Sherman , "In
twenty years they will be living In a
liner country than we have ever
known. If they are boys I'll bet a
thousand dollars they will vote the
republican ticket. "
The vice president was somewhat
hoarse from his efforts of last night ,
and former Congressman James E.
Watson of Indiana took up the talk ,
complimenting the woman and then
making a plea for the re-election of
Congressman Bird McGulro.
As the train was pulling out a man
In the crowd shouted :
"Wh'ero is the state capital going to

have to ask Haskell or heaven. "
Guthrle , Okla. , Sept. 1. "I am not
here to read any republican out of

of the southwest , and It responded
heartily to his enunciation of party

party , " declared Mr. Sherman. It Is
no time for a division of feeling on

mittee. Mr. Sherman rested in his
room until 4:30 : o'clock , when he held
a reception in the lobby of the hotel ,
shaking hands with several hundred
men , women and even children.
One babe In arms was kissed , and
that pleased the mother , and , appar
