Chief Executive Leaves Everybody
Happy and Rejoiced Over His
Bar Harbor. Me. President Taft
brought his stay in Bar Harbor to a
close Friday. He left as a member
of a merry coaching party headed for
Seal Harbor, eleven miles away.
The Mayflower steamed around to
Seal Harbor to meet the president.
The yacht afterward went to North
east Harbor and anchored there for

on board. Sunday morning it will

will take a special train to Bangor.
After visiting that city for two hours
and making a speech be will proceed
by special train to Ellsworth, the
home of Senator Eugene Hale, to be
the latter's guest until Sunday after
noon. Mr. Taft will also make a little
speech at Ellsworth.
The president left everybody in Bar
Harbor happy. He met the towns
people on the village green and made
a little speech to them. He spoke
of the value of vacations and won
much applause by saying that two
weeks no longer sufficed for summer
rest, but sixty days seemed the
proper time in which to recuperate
from the nerve-exhausting work of
the winter. The president congratu
lated the people of Bar arbor upon
living in such a delightful climate. He
said the summer air was like "cham
pagne in a prohibition state." and
that the severe winters tended to
build up a sturdy and never sur

He said in part:
In behalf of myself and the party
who have accompanied me here I
wish to return a grateful acknowl
edgement for your very cordial recep-!
tion. The presence of the national
colors and the flags on the various
buildings here indicate to me what I
know, that this reception is for the
president of your country, and that
it is more for the office than for the
person who for the time being oc
occupies the office. Nevertheless the
person who occupies the office enjoys
the reception all the same. One of
the things which forces itself upon
the minds of one visiting such a
country as this is the fact that the
American people have learned a good
deal in the last generation.
