Morning at Grnad Island.
The president began his day's tour
of Nebraska 'at Grand' Island under
most favorable ausplcoa Grand Island
and the whole surrounding country
turned out almost en masse to greet hla
and cheers upon cheers rang out as he
passed through the streets In his carriage.
At 8 o'clock he received the traveling
men at his car, shaking hands with them.
A special train brought in the veterans
from the Soldier's home, who matched along
as an escort. Long rows bf school children
were also drawn up to catch a glimpse of the
guest, the president paying special attention
to the smallest ones. He stopped a moment
to turn the first earth at the site of the new
library building, and In his short address
before a sea of faces at the high school
(rounds referred not .only to the evidenoes
of marital prosperity he had observed on
his ride the previous day, but also to the
schools, .the church and. the library as the
elements of strength In providing people
of the moral' character that is sure to win.
He was Introduced by Mayor James Cleary
of Grand Uland. The reception committee
included in addition T. O. Harrison, C. O.
Ryan, C. F. Bcntley, W. H. Thompson and
Louis Velt. The president wore on bis coat
lapel a White rose presented by the Infant
child of Mr. Ryan.
On return to the train the party 'was
Joined by Governor Mickey, Senators Mil
lard and ' Dietrich and Congressmen
Hlnshaw and Norrls.
The Grand Island speech, which was char
acteristic of the day's talks, was as fol
lows: Mr. Mayor, and you, men and women of
Nebraska; my fellow-Americans, my fel-low-citlsens:
It Is Indeed a pleasure to
come Into your great and beautiful state.
Yesterday afternoon, for my good fortune,
1 had a ride and as I went through your
country I was struck not merely with its
natural fertility, but with the way In which
that fertility has been .$nhflQ.ced and varied
by your own efforts .
In the first place let ma say hpw glad I
am to sen' so much alfalfa, as well as corn.
If von haw aot two etaDles you do not
nave as much misery whe,n one staple hap
pens to fall. In the next place I was more
struck thu.n I can say by the amount of
timber I saw, the groves and rows of
trees. I knew, of course,' that over 200,
(HO, acres of foreBt land had been planted
In Nebraska, but to know a thing la one
thing and to See it Is another. And It was
a matter of good augury for all the state
to see as I dl.i at Mr. Stalley's place, where
a saw mill has been started to saw logs
from timber planted and grown by our own
people. Nebraska was originally a well
nigh tretless state. The great bulk of the
trees here have been planted by Its own
people. I am klad to say that through tha
wisdom ..of your senators and representa
tives In helping to establish forest re
serves In' the nand bills, now Hie national
government will be able to co-operate with
your own spirit of private enterprise. What
Nebraske has done in tree planting has ex
tended beyond Its own limits. The founder
of Arbor Day wns that upright and able
public servant, the late ex-8ecretary Ster
ling Morton. (Applause.) Arbor Day has
extended fwr beyond the limits of the state
and all over the union. Now millions of
children as well as millions of grown peo
ple learn -practically on Arbor Day the
wisdom of trying to plant trees where they

No Race Suicide Here..
' This morning I have turned the sod In
preparation for the building of the new
library; and I passed between great rows
of school children on my way here, and I
see some children here and there in the
crowd. Now I am proud as an American
of what Nebraska has done with its pro
ducts of the field and range; I am proud
of your material development. But after
all what really counts in the end In any
state Is the character of the men and
women whom the state produces. That
Is the essential thing. (Applause.) The
school, the library, the church, the hun
dred Instruments for moral and Intellectual
betterment, those are what count more
than aught elan in developing the type of
citizenship In which as Americans, we have
a right to feel satisfaction. I was glad to
see the children. ,1 believe in your stock
and I want to See It kept up.
In closing let me thank you all for your
greeting. The rest of you will not grudge
my thanking especially the men- of the
Grand Army, the men who in the times
that tried men's souls proved their worth
by their endeavor; but beyond that I wish
to thank you all, and to congratulate you
upon what I see about me. The material
prosperity which we now all so abundantly
enjoy, that prosperity which must stand
at the base of our national welfare, and
that over and above that you have reared
on that Indispensable foundation what
la absolutely necessary if the build
ing Is to be worthy of the architect the
superstructure of Intellect anfc moral well
being and righteousness; the superstruc
ture of which the cornerstones are the li
brary, the school, the church. I believe
In the men and women of Nebraska, of the
west because I feel that you are In a sense
typical Americans. Your forefathers came
Into this country and as pioneers carved
the prairie Into fertile farms. You have
had In the past to face hardships and dis
aster. The work of taming the new coun
try is a rough one. You not only have to
tame It, but you have to find out. what can
be done with It, and the penalty of trying
to do the wrong thing is sometimes heavy.
You have succeeded. You have put this
state on a permanent plane of prosperity.
That prosperity has been helped by wise
laws snd the administration of the laws;
but after all has been said and done, while
something can be done by law, and while
we must demand honest and Upright ad
ministration of the law, yet in the last re
sort each man must rely as the chief factor
In working out his own salvation upon the
Bum of-the qualities that go to make his
Individual character, upon his honesty, his
courage and his common sense. (Cheers and
Ovation sit Haitian.

Lincoln more than any of the other points
visited was profuse in.red, white and blue;
every window flew the American flag. Tha
postomce, the university, 'the state houuo,
the commercial buildings, the residences,
each waved a welcome from a hundred
flags to the hero of the people. Across tho
street on O, between Twelfth and Thir
teenth, was suspended a large picture of the
president. , The poetofflce was a waving
mass. Hundreds of flags flying in the wind
from many windows gave this building a
most beautiful appearance. At the state
house the most artistic work was done. In
every window on the north and west was
the president's picture framed In the na
tional colors. The long corridors radiating
from the center to the north, south, east
and west were arched in flags and red,
white and blue. Bunting tapering from

red, white and blue lace. Every office-door'
was covered with portions of red, white
and blue. The walls of every office on the
first floor were resplendent with color.

The speech at Lincoln dwelt more espe
cially upon the duties of citizenship.
What He Said.
The president spoke from a stand on the
capltol grounds. He said!
Coming through the state of Nebraska'
today I have rejoiced in your great pros
perity; I rejoiced in your fertile soil; I
rejoice in the crops you raise and, after
all, the best product of any 'soil Is the
product of the men and women. (Laughter
and applause.) I was mighty glad to see
your children, they seemed to be all right
In quality and In quantity. (laughter.)
I think ypu have a mighty good stock. I
want to see it go on. (LaQghter.)
And now, my friends and fellow citizens,
I have -but a word to say to you. I wish
to speak. one word only upon government
good government. There Is nothing pe
culiar r Wonderful in getting a good gov
ernment any more than, there is anything
peculiar or wonderful in a. man's, making
a success In private life. The same quail
ties that make a man a gdod man in his
family, a good husband and. father a go,od,
nelghbol, a "man with wham-yen -like to
work or to deal with, those same qualities
make him -a good citizen,; good man fa
4he state' when applied in his rela
tions tq ' the state'. We need honesty,
we need courage, we need common sense.
We need to show In civic life the same
spirit, that you shpwed in the civil war -in
battle; what you Cared to Know about as
to the man on your right . hand or your
left was not the. way In which ho worshiped
His Maker; not his social standing or
wealth; you cared nothing whether he were
a farmer or mechanic, lawyer bf business
man, bricklayer or banker; what you
wanted to know was whether he would do
his duty like a man. (Voices: Right, right!)
This is what you cared for, whether he
would stay "put- when the time came
(laughter). It la the same thing in civil

fairly 'pivoted on his heel to neglect no
one.. . .
Salutes a Veteran.
As the carriage turned off Sixteenth and
west on Harney an' aged veteran hobbled
to tbe edge of tho crowd and gave a cheer
that was all his own. The president of
the United States, who had seated himself
for the moment, arose and doffed his hat to
that poor shadow of a fading glory. As the
pageant, swinging back onto Farnam street
from. Seventeenth, reached Nineteenth and
turned , northward, a dust-covered young
farmer raised his baby above his head and
shouted: VHere's my starter, Mr. Presi
dent." The president of the United States
saw the father and the child and laughed
outright, whereupon the sire of promise
sold: "He notioed baby. He noticed her.
didn't he?" and fell back Into the crowd,
supremely proud. At Twentieth and Doug
las, about the Omaha olub house, the cav
alry, the police and, the cadets all ranged
about In a square. As the president stepped
from his carriage and walked briskly up
tha south steps he saw thsm all, and turning
with bared head he waved them his thanks
for the honor shown then passed In and
from sight. The crowd melted away reluc
tantly, and not until the last of the car
riages had deposited its burden.
: At '.the Omaha Clnb.
Hundreds of persons trampled the lawns
and lined the curbstones at Twentieth and
Douglas streets when the president's car
riage drew up before the Omaha club.
Amid cheers and the waving of many hand
kerchiefs he left the carriage, the band
which was drawn up to. the right of the
club playing' "The Star Spangled Banner."
The"-president, Secretary Loeb, Senator
Millard and Mr. Thomas A. Fry proceeded
up the steps, Mr. Fry walking before the
distinguished guest. President Roosevelt
and Secretary- Loeb were shown to apart
ments where traces ' 6f the day's Journey

Just as ths desert was cerved the presi
dent beckoned to Steward E. Pryor. who
created the dinner and designed the ar
rangements, and said:
"I have never eaten a better dinner nor
seen prettier decorations. I want to thank
you fer them."
There was no restraint nor seml-allence
at the dinner. A more democratic repast was
never enjoyed In Omaha with or without a
president to lend it dignity. The spirit was
ons of pleasurs and delight and good cheer.
The banquet was ended at 8:05. General
Manderson asked for quiet and said:
"Gentlemen, the hour of 8 o'clock has
arrived and, as you know, the president
will spesk at the Coliseum. It Is time to
leave this pleasant scene and escort him

here Is to thsnk you most heartily tor

Token from Colored Cltlaens.
Without further ceremony the banquet
party left the hall, preceded by tbe presi
dent and Mr. Fry. In a few minutes thj
president and party came down Into the
reception room of the club, where- William
Cannon and John W. Long were watting to
present President Roosevelt with the fol
lowing resolution, embossed on leather and
signed by thirty representative colored cit
izens of Omaha: ,
Whereas, Theodore Roosevelt, president
of the United States, has by word and deed
Rhown himself to be the president of the
whole people of the United States and has
decided that character ami ability shall
determine the eligibility of American It
ixens for political advancement and that
race or color shall not debar them from
such; and whereus, bis put. He acts and
utterance, while meaning much to all
American citizens, have beer, of 'Infinite
value to holding open the door of hope and
opportunity to negro American clUzcn."hlp.
Therefote, be it
Resolved, That we as representatives
of this claas of American citizenship resi
dent in Omaha and Nebraska, herebv ex
press our gratitude to President Itoocevolt
for his manly and statesmanlike slaiid for
right, assuring him of our conildence and
pledging him our hearty co-operation for
his future endeavors.
The president was being hurried away
In order that he might reach the Coliseum
early, but ho paused and, lifting his hat,
shook hands with the colored men, who
presented the resolution, and said: "This
Is a gift that I appreciate most deeply." He
read a part of the text and continued: "I
assure you, gentlemen, this gift touches me
mos( deeply. I shall Veep It for good
you may depend on that."
Then he was told that an elaborate
bridle In a suit case wrapped In the colors
was also a gift from the colored people,
and he thanked them again and extended
his hand In parting.
Outside people had filled every foot of
space from which they might observe the
steps from the club snd as the president
stepped forth they cheered loudly.
Wind Prevents Street Decoration.
A capricious wind god forbade Omaha's
decorating as It wished for the president.
The wind god arose before daylight and
was busy with its meanest tricks until
long after Its usual evening retiring hour.
Flags were almost blown from their staffs
and It would have been quite Impossible
to have fastened fragile bunting on store
fronts so securely es to make It stay. In
consequence the willing business men had
to content themselves with window por
traits framed In national colors and with
photographed flags nailed up In sheltered
corners. Of these there was an abundance
and at night some of the establishments,
notably the Boston Store, gave an extra
touch by elaborate electrical Illumination.
But It was at the Omaha club's home
that most was demanded and that most
was provided. It is very certain that
Omaha has never seen a prettier dinner
plan and It Is doubtful If the president of
the United States has. The three large
rooms on the east side of the second floor
were thrown together and three tables
united In an open oblong with a fourth
slightly to the south, but In direct linn
with the principal guest. Steward Pryor bad
abandoned the customary flag scheme arid
used, -instead diminutive Incandescent elec
tric globes, red, white and blue.
Beauties of the Banquet Hall.
These he fastened to cables, bound In
green. The cables were hung diagonally
across the rooms, from corner to corner,
the globes glowing high above the guests'
heads, with tho wires bound with smilrx.
Similar strands extended the full length
of tho center of each table, the incandes
cent protruding above a tiny bank of
asparagus sprlngrii given color by white
and pink carnations. Directly In front of
the president was a mirror lake In which
rode a diminutive schooner given the club
by General Manderson and modeled after
the Zampa, owned by Emperor William II.
Tho rigging was bung with asparagus plu
mosus and the tiny lake was hedged about
with gp.llax leaves, the bronze of which
contrasted most beautifully with the dark,
green of the aBparagus pluniosus with wht,:h
they were interwoven. In the center of
each of the long tables was a cannon, its
carriage of pink carnations and its barrel
of white, thus giving the army as well as
tbe marine a representation. The side
boards were surmounted by varea of white
carnations and were banked with farlyenses
and maiden hair ferna. Tha chandelie
were bung with srailax and the side lights
with the rare asparagus plumosus ferns
that predominated In the other decorations.
Over the president's head was a handsome
portrait of McKlnley and facing bim, at
the opposite end of tbe room his own por
trait, of similar size and similarly deco
rated. Potted palms occupied all space
spared by tbe table and chairs.
At the Coliseum.
The people began to arrive at the Coli
seum about 7 o'clock and when the doors
were opened It was all that a detachment
of police and the ushers could do to keep
the people from filling the seats and boxes
reserved for the Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben. By
8 o'clock tbe crowd was so densely packed
In the aisles that the managers gave
up the attempt to keep the seats reserved
and ths congestion was relieved by throw
ing all unoccupied seats open to the public.
It waa 8:33 when tbe presidential party
arrived. The party entered with General
Manderson at the head, closely followed
by Prealdent Roosevelt. The general had
Just passed through the door when the
president passed him and came to the center
of the stage ahead of tbe party amid deaf
Ths crowd cheered until it waa tired and
then General Manderson said:
"My fellow citizens: We hsve a high
regard for the great office of tbe chief ex
ecutlve of the greatest nation on earth. We
are here to do more than to honor the of
fice; we are here to honor the man who
honors It Theodore Roosevelt. (Cheers.)
When our respect for the office la Joined
to the admiration for the man our emotion
Is intensified. I now propose that we all
stand and give three cheers for President
These were given with a will and Gen
eral Manderson continued:
"Now, every mother's son and daughter
of you sit down. It is my Intention to
turn this unruly mob over to the man who
took ths coal strike In the grip of bis hand
and settled It. I think our honored guest
an command silence by his august pres
ence aa well as by reason of being tbe
president of a great republic."
Tbe , President's Speech.
There was an ovation long and loud ac
corded the president, as hs stepped to tho
front of the platform. There was quiet In
an instant as the president began his ad
dress. Hs said:
Mr. Chairman. and you, my fellow citlsenn:
It is a great pleasure to come before you

traveling through your great and beautiful
state. I know your people; 1 have been

own folly nothing Can save you but your
self. But If yon -act us 1 believe and trust
that you will act, this state has a future
before It second to that of no other state In
this great nation. lApplause.)
I address you tonight on the anniversary
of the birth of the great, silent soldier,
lTlysses Grant and I am glad to have the
chance of saying a few words to an nudl
ence such as this in this great typical city
of the west on the occasion of the birthday
of the great western general, the great
American general. It Is a good thing to
pay homage with our Hps to the Illustrious
dead. It Is a good thing to keep in mind
what we owe to the memories of Wash
ington and his followers, who founded
this mlnhty republic; to Abraham Lincoln
and Grant and their followers, who saved
it. (Applause.) There Is a president here
to address you this evening because, Gen
eral Manderson, you and those like you
proved your truth by your endeavor In
the years from '61 to '65. (Applause.)
. Homage that Counts.
Now. gentlemen. I have said that it Is a
good thing to pay homage with our Hps to
the mighty men of the past, but It Is a far
better thing to pay homage that counts,
the homage of our Uvea and our deeds. Il
lustrious memories ot a nation's past sre
but the curses If they serve the men of the
nation at present as excuses for shirking
the problems of the day. They are bless
ings if they serve to spur on the men now
to see that the men act as well in their
time as the men of yesterday did In theirs.
Each generation has its peculiar prob
lems; each generation has certain tasks
allotted to It to do. Shame to it If It treats
the glorious deeds of a generation that
went before as an excuse for Its own fail
ure to do the peculiar task It finds ready
to hand. We have not got such problems
as those that bended nigh to crushing the
shoulders of sad. patient, mighty Abraham
Lincoln. liut we have our problems. A
short while ago we had problems of war.
Now we have problems of peace, and upon
the way in which we solve those problems
whl depend whether our children and our
children's children shall look back or shall
not look buck to us with the veneration
which we feel for the men of the mighty
years of the civil war. Our task is a
lighter one than theirs, but It Is an Import
ant one, and do it we must if we wish to
rise level to the standart set us by our fore
fathers. You, In Nebraska, have passed
through periods of terrible privation, of
misery and hardship. They were evil times.
And yet there is no experience, no evil that
out of It good cannot come, If only we
look at It right. Things are better now.
Things csn be kept better, but only on
condition that we face facts with coolness
and sanity, with clear-eyed vision that
tells us what is true and what Is false.
When things go wrong there Is another ten
dency in humanity, to wish to blame some
of Its fellows, and that Is the natural ten
dency and by no means a wholesome ten
dency. Where the , Hope Lies.
There Is always a tendency to feel that
somehow by some legislation, by tbs enact
ment of some law, by the trying of some
patent scheme things can be mode perma
nently better. Now something can be done
by law. A good deal can be done by law.
Even more can be done by the honest ad
ministration of the law; an administration
which knows neither fear nor favor, which
treats each man exactly aa that man's rec
ord entitles him to be treated: the kln.l of
enforcement of the law of which I think I
may promise that you will have while Mr.
Knox remains attorney general. (Applause.)
Hut more than the law. far more than the
administration of the law, far more depends
upon the individual quality of the average
citizen. That Is under Providence, the chief
factor in working out the salvation of any
nation. I say under Providence. If the hand
of the Lord is heavy upon us. If the stars
war against ua in their courses, if therj
