extent anticipated, although a great
many men, including 30,000 Kalian

Freight continues to move as usual,
but the demands of the engineers has
temporarily demoralized the move

boats. A number or the owners of
tugboats decided to resist the de

lwats up. while in other cases the en
gineers left their posts.
Some of the companies were suc
cessful in securing nonunion men to
take charge of their engine rooms.
The situation is not nearly so serious
as had been toked for. The only se

The strikers paraded the streets,

I THE EXPOSITION
PRESIDENT RECEIVES AND DEDI
CATES THE GROUNDS.
A GREAT PARAK Of SOLDIERS
Sixty Thousand Peeple Crowd Into the
Big Auditorium Where the Dedica
tion Words Were Spoken The Ad
dress of President Francis.
ST. LOUIS The rites which pres
ent the Louisiana Purchase exposition
to the world were performed in the
Liberal Arts building Thursday with
all the dignity and splendor befitting
such an 'occasion.
A parade of 11000 soldiers down Lin
delflxrolevard to the World's fair
grounds formed a brilliant prelude
to the ceremony of dedication.
This prelude over, 60,000 people
were crowded into -the big auditorium
where, in the presence of official rep-'
rescntatives of all the civilized na
tions of the world, the words of dedi
cation were spoken by the president
of the United States. As the last
syllable fell from the president's lips,
and as the words of dedication were
completed, 60,000 voices rose in a pro
digious bass note of applause.
Following the invocation of the
cardinal, former United States Sena
tor Thomas H. Carter, of the national
commission, who acted as presi
dent of the day, was introduced, ana
made a speech.
After the rendition of "The
Heavens Proclaiming," by the chorus
of 2,000 voices, David R. Francis,
president of the fair association, de
livered an address, presenting the
buildings of the fair.
At the close of President Francis'
address terrific cheers broke to greet
President Roosevelt, whose dedication
address was, in part, as follows:
"The work of expansion was by far
the greatest work of our people dur
ing the years that intervened between
the adoption of the constitution and
the outbreak of the civil war.
"Never before had the world seen
the kind of national expansion which
gave our people all that part of the
American continent lying west of the
thirteen original states; the greatest
landmark in which was the Louisiana
"When our forefatners joinea io call
into being this action, ihey undertook
a task for which there was but little
encouraging precedent The develop
ment of civilization from the earliest
period seemed to show the truth of
two propositions: In the first place, it
had always proved exceedingly diffi
cult to secure both freedom and
strength in any government; and in
the second place, it had always proved
well-nigh impossible for a nation to
expand without either breaking up or
becoming a centralized tyranny."
The exercises closed by a benedic
tion by Bishop Potter of New York.
At the conclusion of the speeches, be
ing the 100th anniversary of the sign
ing of the treaty which transferred
the Louisiana purchase from France
to the United States, a centennial
salute of aerial guns was fired. .

Professor in Haravard Medical Col

BOSTON, Mass. The Globe an
nounced that Dr. William Thomas
Councilman, the Shattuck professor
of pathological anatomy in the Har
vard Medical school, has discovered
the germ that causes smallpox. The
discovery is pronounced by physicians
who have been made aware of Dr.
Councilman's discovery as one of the
really great ones in medical history
and the most important made in Bos
ton, rivalling the discovery of ether
as an anaesthetic.
The details of the investigation,
how each successive step was taken,
how valuable scientific information
concerning the protozoa, the organism
that produces that highly contagious
disease, will, on Tuesday evening, be
furnished to medical men by the dis
coverer, who refrains from making a
public announcement of it until he has
enlightened the scientific world. Tues
day's meeting of physicians will be
held at the Harvard Medical school
under the auspices of the Boston So
ciety of Medical Science and the no
tices merely state that Dr. Council
man will have an announcement to
make upon small pox.

to whether army, officers, who, upon
their own application, have received

of which were decided by the court
of claims favorably to the claimants.
That opinion was reversed by Mon
The opinion was delivered by Jus
tice Holmes, who said that the prac
tice of the war department and the
treasury department in not allowing
claims of this character had been long
maintained and that the court was of
the opinion that the system should
not be overruled.

For many hours no one could ex

that a miracle had occurred and a vol
