CATTLE There was a moderate run of
cattle this morning, lol cars being reported,
In which waa slightly larger than laat
Week, but not nearly so heavy as two
weeks ago or as a year ago. About tha time
tha market opened It began raining quite
hard, making it mean and sloppy in the
yards, snd, at the same time, making the
cattle look their worst.
There was a fair demand for beef cattle.
and the desirable kinds sold quite readily,
and In very good season, at prices that
were anywhere from steady to quite a
Hula stronger in spots. While there were
not very many on sale, mere were caxue
good enough to bring 16.00.
Cows and heifers also sold freely at good.
strong prices, some salesmen quoting the
market as much as strong to 10c higher
than last week. Practically everything
In sight changed hands by U o'clock In tha

over quite a number of catle last week,
combined to make the market both slow
and lower this morning. Stock cattle and
feeders never look good In a storm and
they looked so unfavorably to buyers this
morning that the market was safely 10c
lower than last week and dull at tha de

general market being Juat about steady

waa a salesman who thought he got out to

ottu-rs to off-net it who thought they did
not do aa well, but It would ba a dlflcuit
matter to point out any very noteworthy
change. Tha quality of the hoga here mas
not ery good, that Is. there were few

favorite with vaudeville audiences and she
sppesred three times before King Edward,
each time receiving a handsome present
from his royal highness, the last one be
ing a magnificent headpiece.
The train, which was a first section, was
crowded with passengers bound for Hamp

the battleship fleet. Beyond those men
tioned no one wss seriously hurt. Ths two
locomotives were standing on the main
track. Why they were there is yet to be
ascertained. The heavy train crashed Into
them with terrific force. A combined bag
gage and msll car and a baggsge csr re
ceived the brunt of the collision and all the
men In them were killed or Injured.
The wreck Immediately took fire and It
ass Impossible to rescue those under the
wreckage. The local firs company was
summoned, but nothing could be done for
the unfortunates under the burning cars.
At I o'clock the first body waa taken
from the ruins. The bodies were badly
charred, and the only one Identified up to
11 a. tn. was that of Engineer Davis, who
was Identified by a finger ring.
The two locomotives which caused the
wreck were waiting to take the two sec

battleships and five cruisers arrived at
the southern ocean drill grounds fifty

while there made ready for today's review

capacity as commander-in-chief or tne
army and navy, he did not consider the
event one of sufficient Importance to re
quire a speech or other special ceremony.
rrealdent Greets Representatives.
Today, with their splendid record of
achievements and victories of peace behind
them, the sixteen battleships came home to
a welcome and to a ceremonious greeting
which could hardly have been more Jubi
lant and sincere If the fleet were return
ing victorious from some famous battle
ground. The president addressed not
only the 01 dorrs of the fleet galh
erd upon the quarter deck of the May
flower, but he visited as well the four
divisional flagships and there he addressed
the crews In terms of enthusiastic compli
ments. As it was Impossible for Mr. Roose
velt to vlsU each of the sixteen returning
vessels, representatives of the men from
each ship in the four divisions were gath
ered upon the flagships and they. In turn.
took the president's greetings to their ship
mate. The Mayflower had not long lain at an
chor when the tracings of smoke on the
hotison told of the approach of the fleet
and soon the mastheads of the Connecticut
could be picked up with glasses through
the wide swung capes. Then the white
hull of the famous flagship flashed into
view. Out of the distance the fleet grew
rapidly until at last the end of the white
column In front could be distinguished. The
gray clad vessels of the escort grew far
more slowly above the horizon and served
as a splendid demonstration of the value
of a neutral color for the naval vessels In
time of war. I
Gaa Baoni Welcome Signal.
While the leading ships were still a mile
Or more distant from the Mayflower,
puff of smoke from the forward bridge of
the Connecticut, followed by a muffled
boom, served as a signal to all the fleet
that the flagship had "mnde out" the
presidential flag on the Mayflower. It
was also the signal ot "tiome at last." and
made the hearts of 14,000 men and 600 offi
cers beat quicker In realisation that the
day they have looked forward to through
all the days of lavish hospitality abroad at
last arrived. That first gun of the Con
necttcut's national salute to the president
found every ship In the line with saluting
cannon ready and the second puff from
the flagship had not sounded when the
guns of the other ships had begun to speak
In unison the honor due the chief executive.
The president mads his way to the bridge
of the Mayflower while the saluting was
In progress. He had 'not long to wait be
for the Imposing line was bckrlng- down
upon the reviewing boat. The scene, like
that at the departure of the fleet, was one
which the president probably never will
forget. It set nerves tingling with patriotic
pride. On either side of the Incoming ar
mada were gathered scores of excursion
steamers which grew constantly thicker
and thicker, as the warships plowed their
way to a home anchorage. The excursion
steamers, the tugs and the launches were
keeping up a continuous roar of salutes
from their varl-toned whistles and the
crowds aboard as well as the throng on
the shore were Cheering tn a chorus which
carried Its welcome home far across the
waters to ears that had not heard so
sweet a sound in all their 45,000 miles of
cruising through the - seven seas of the
Ships la Review Trim.
The Connecticut and all the ships in its
wake were dressed In cruising fashion for
filing In review. At each masthead of
the Succeeding ships huge American flags
stood out to the brecxe. The union Jack
was aflutter at each stem and streaming
flags were In place at every lofty gaff.
Majestically the Connecticut steamed
toward the Mayflower, a line of fighting
vetsels at lis heels. In their natty uni
forms of blus the sailors of the Connecticut
were manning the rails "close aboard."
Shoulder to shoulder they stood stiffly al
attention along the sides of the 18,0m-ton
ship an almost unbroken human line from
forecastle to quarterdeck. On the quarter
deck tbe marine guard was drawn up.
Officers on the bridge and decks stood with
swords drawn and In special full Ureas
As the prow of the Connecticut reached
the bridge of the Mayflower the band on
board the flagship began lo play the "Star
6 pang ltd Banner." The prealdent doffed
his silk hat and stood at attention In salute
to the flag. There were no cheers, but a
lump was In the throat of every one aboard
the president's yacht and cheering would
have been a welcome relief. As the last
strains of the national anthem died away
the roar of another salute shook the air.
This time It was the Cor.nectk-ut alone that
fired. A ship of beautiful lines, the Con
necticutprobably the most famous flag
ship among the navies of the world never
appeared to belter advantage than today.
It steamed by tha Mayflower, a splendid
example of American architecture. In tha
wake of the Connecticut carr a the Kansas

passed the sams ceremonies set by the fKg-

After the shlps'tiad snchored In response
to signals from the Connecticut and the
division flagships, it seemed but a moment
before the rainbow lines of fluttering signal
flags and bits of varl-colored bunting, all
arranged in accordance with a oommon
design, sprang, aa if by roagto to the meat
heads. In the line left by the warships
snd still kept clear by a patrol fleet of
torpedo boats and naval tugs, tho May

fleet's return and. the birthday of Wash

cheering ashore was begun - again and
swept In a great wave up and down the
crowded water front. The Mayflower
passed close In shore and passing Fortress
Monroe, the president's flag ' received the
army's tribute of twenty-one guns.
The Msyflnwer csme slowly to anchor In
the center of the fleet. Bwlft little steam
launches had already been lowered over
board from the divisional flagships, and
were darting to the various ships to g.ither
up the commanding officers for a call n
the piesldent. Lastly, the four admirals
of the fleet entered the launches and the
start for the Mayflower was made. Ad
miral Sperry's launch was the first to
reach the starboard gangway of the presi
dent's yscht and he was ushered aboard
with a flare of trumpets, a ruffle of drums
and a few strains of a lively march played
by the ship's band. President Roosevelt
advanced from his station on the quarter
deck and cordially grasped Admiral Sper
ry's hand, Then came the captains of the
first division and the succeeding admirals
snd captains of all the divisions and ships
of the returning fleet. President Roose
velt warmly congratulated all of the offi
cors personally, and then collectively, lie
formally thanked them and all the officers
and men under them for the part they had
played In making the cruise such a bril
President Visits Fla (ships.
The officers were on the Msy flower less
than half an hour. Then the president, ac
companied by Admiral Sperry and his aids
began his round of visits .to the divisional
flagships. lie went first to the Connecti
cut. Again the sides of the flagship were
manned. The prealdent was received aboard
with tho most elaborate ceremonies. Com
ing over the side the president wss saluted.
Again, as he left the ship, having spoken
briefly to the officers and men, the salute
of twenty-one guns was fired. The presi
dent went In turn to the Louisiana, the
Georgia and the -Wisconsin.
When the president returned to the May
flower late in the afternoon the notable
reception and review of ttia fleet was at
Prealdent Praise Fleet.
In hi address President Roosevelt saldl
"Admiral Bperry, officers and men of the
battle fleet: Over a year has passed since
you steamed out of this harbor and over
the world's rim, and this morning th
hearts of all who saw you . thrilled with
pride, as the hulls of the mighty warships
lifted above the horlxon.. You have been in
the northern and the southern hemispheres;
four times you have crossed the line; you
have steamed through all the great oceans;
you have touched the coast of every conti
nent. Even your general course has been
westward and now you come back to Ug
port from which you set sail. Tlila la the
firat battl fleet that has ever circumnavi
gated the globe. Thoae who perform the
feat again can but follow In your foot
'The little torpedo flotilla fleet went with
you around South America, through th
straita of Magellan, to our own Pacific -coast.
The armored cruiser squadron met
you and left you again, when you were half
way around the world. You have falsified
every prediction of tbe prephets.of failure.
In all your long cruise not an accident
worthy of mention has happened to a single
battleship, not yet any cruiser or torpedi
boat. You left this rosst In a high stste
of battle efficiency and you return with
your efficiency Increased, better prepared
than when you left, not only In personnel,
but even In material, purltlg your world
rrulss you have taken your regular gun
nery practice and skilled though you were
before with th guns, you have grown more
skilled still, and through practice yoa have
improved In battle tacll.a. though, here
ther Is mora room for Improvement than
hi your gunnery. Incidentally, J suppose,
I hsrdly need say thst one measure of your
f lines must be your clear recognition of
the need always stesdlly to strive to ren
der youraelves more fit; If you ever grow to
think that you are fit enough, you can
make up your minds that from that mo
ment yon will brg n to go backward.
"As a wsr machine, th fleet comes bark
In better snap than It went out. In addi
