the country miles awuy, near Southampton,
and when the train finally picked him up
at that station and steamed toward the
do kH the window! were all full of people,
anxious to gaze, even for a second, upon
this remarkable man. At the docks the
baggage men were more concerned in see

luggage. Here and there boys with good
cockney lungs were crying papers of this,

men In uniform. A shower came up and as
his tug steumed out to meet the Kalserln

along the docks. The demonstration at
tending his departure could of course not

even though It was an Imitation, it em
phasises the universal popularity of the

Plain and Democratic.
Finally we were all aboard. Colonel
Roosevelt democratically accepted the
plaudits of his fellow passengers. Just as
the i nose of the big Hamburg-American
liner pointed toward America under full
head of steam, some man on the promen
ade deck hailed another with, "Is Jeffries
going to whip Johnson?" -
And standing by was Colonel Roosevelt,
plain and democratic, smiling and showing
his gleaming' teeth. - He' that caused ail
the whistles and talk, moved among his
friends and acquaintances quietly talking
just as you, 1, or any other man -would do.
I thought that the demonstration had been
finished, but It was Just beginning. It
lasted all the way across the Atlantic,
culminating in the grand demonstration
Saturday, one week ago today. Colonel
Roosevelt spent an hour looking over a
book called "T. R. In Cartoon." He spoke
of various things at home which the pic
tures had awakened In his memory. He
laughed at some of the drawings; smiled
at others, but he frowned at none. Across
his memory flitted forgotten Incidents,
called up by the pictures. He recalled that
tills thing had come about when such
and such was the case, or that thing
had transpired when something else was
happening. His great regret waa that
the cartoons were not dated.
The following day Sunday found him
at the religious services on shipboard. He
aang with the others and waa more than
Interested In the homely sermon and Its
apeal to common sense. In the evening
he spoke to the second class and steerage
passengers. He told them their duty to
America and themselves after they had
landed and then enrolled themselves as
Visits the Stokers.
Monday, Colonel Roosevelt made the
j rounds of the engine room and flrerooms
: and shook hands with one whole watch of
grimy stokers. He admired them and told
them so. He commented on the cleanliness
of their quarters. The watch was very
proud of the honor, I can tell you.
Tuesday, there was a reception and the
colonel met many of the ship's passengers.
Then it was that I had my best op
portunity to Htudy him, when he was un
conscious of the fact.
As people from various states were an
nounced, Colonel Roosevelt s expression
varied according to the location. One
from Lynn, Mass., brought forth a dig
nified expression; the next was from
Kansas and he almost, had his arm pulled
out from the socket; the next from Vir
ginia brought forth' an expression as
though he was a sampler of Sinithfleld
r.ams; the next was from Oklahoma and
the colonel nearly turned a somersault into
his lap. Such real pleasure was never
witnessed as his meeting this assorted
assembly. In one Instance he fairly held
an old woman by the hand to prove to
her that he really remembered her hus
band. Sometimes after being Introduced
to a person Colonel Roosevelt would take
a few hundred steps as the other turned
away, keeping up a running fire of ques
tions, no matter what state a man came
from, the colonel knew something about
It and wax desirous of knowing more.
Always m Plain Man. '
The great mass of marconlgrama that
came from shore and r asking ships did not

NEW YORK, June 19. -The tremendous
enthusiasm with which former President
Roosevelt was greeted yesterday the fact
that there were present In the great crowds
which greeted him men from every sec
tion of the country was a tirprise to
the scores of prominent politicians of all
shades of opinion, who had conio here to

To Borne It was In the nature of a shock,
These had hoped again hope that the
power of this man to move the American
people had been over-estimated- When
they heard him cheered as few men have
ever been cheered, by the great multitudes
which watched him as he stood In his car
riage, hat and hands waving, his smiling
face agleam wlh pleasure and good will,
no doubt was left in the minds of the
keenly observant politicians that he has
lost none of his hold- on the American
people and that he Is today the most po
tent force In American politics.
What will he do? That is a question
which many an anxious repubublican to
day would give half his fortune to have
an answer. If Mr. Roosevelt himself
knows, he keeps the Information carefully
to himself. In reply to urgent questions
from newsDSDer men and politicians, he

Until the sphinx speaks the riddle will
not be solved. In the meantime one man's
guess is as good as another's.
No group of politicians are more an
xious to have Colonel Roosevelt speak than
those of New York. That he alone can save
the republican party from defeat In No
vember Is generally accepted as a fact
by republican leaders.
One thing is certain, Mr. Roosevelt will
not talk politics If he can avoid It, untl he
has had. a chance to rest up a bit. His
son's wedding takes place Monday and he
is to visit them at their Massachusetts
summor home for a Bhort while, after
that he will probably be able to avoid
politics and politicians for a week or two.
After that it Is likely to be different

"Roosevelt's intentions are one thing,"
said one man who has been closely asso

do, may be an entirely different proposi

possible to conceive that he will not be

Quentln, as though guarding that sacred
honor to the exclusion of all others.
Quentln stood at the rail of the boat espy

Kiss for Miss Alexander.
After the boys hugged their father they
turned to their mother's waiting arms.
Colonel Roosevelt, with characteristic Im
petuosity placed his arms about his son's
fiance and planted a loud smacking kiss
on her choek. That young woman looked
decidedly uncomfortable for a moment,
but the colonel was not disconcerted In
the least. Theodore, Jr's, greeting with his
father was a hearty clasp of the hand and
a slap on- the back, but he got kissed
from his mother and sisters.
It waa the original plan to breakfast on
the Manhattan, but the fog complicated
this arrangement. Therefore the Roose

Miss Ethel stood demurely at her

Joy at the booming guns, the screaminc

Mrs. Roosevelt quietly faded out of the

the ceremony came on with a rush. She

It Is pointed out by republican leaders
that there never has been a Congress
where the president has obtained the
amount of legislation that has resulted
from the demands of President Taft.
Starting in on the demand for revision
of the tariff, he procured this at an ex

will have to wait until the next session,
but it is said the prospects are good for Its
passage at that time. All of the rcgulnr
supply have passed both houses, except
the general deficiency bill. That was
passed by tho house Saturday, and will
be reported to the senate not later than
Tuesday. Unless there is trouble In con
nection with a scheme for the retirement
of superannuated employes of the govern
ment, which the bill may carry, It Is
thought Its pusfage will take not more
than one day.
Bunk Bill Before Senate,
The postal savings bank bill Is still before
tho senate. It came from- the house In
the form of an amended bill, and Senator
Carter moved that the senate conour in
the house amendments. Opposition de
veloped and the motion has been dhat.rt
Inttrmlttontly since the bill returnej from
the house. President Taft approvts cf the
house bill, and It seems reasonably certalrr
that the senate will accept It.
The rivers and harbors bill Is a Tallin
the president's signature, and he will soon
have the omnibus public buildings bill,
which was reported to the house yeatrri'.ty!
With both of thef.e measures befor him,
ho Is In position to command that action
be taken on smh remaining legislation aa
he feels should pass.
President Ttft tomorrow will sign the
statehood bill. It Is likely that there will
ho a number of claimants for the pen used
.n slsning that historic Instrument. Presi
dent Taft probably will use t. n.n. in
approving the bill and give o e to Dele
gate Andrews, representing .No Mexico,
anu tne other to Delegate Cameron, rep
In tho last few days of this session there
will be a flood of requusts In both branches
of congress for unanimous consent to t ke
up measures of importance to the com
munities of Individual members. Many
members aro doomed to disappointment,
for neither branch of congress as a whole,
shows much patience In dealing with meas
ures which have not commanded attention
until adjournment is imminent.
