Chairman Cornelius Vanderbilt,
President Elbert II. Gary, of the
Steel corporation, and scores of men
prominent the world of finance,
industrial and politics, who composed
the large reception committee.
- "Well, this is just bully," con
tinued the colonel, who, with his silk
hat in hand, was soon engulfed in a
awarm of admiring friends and poli
tical associates, who hastened him
to the after deck of the Androscog
gin, where the first reception of tho
day was- held. Chairman Vanderbilt
presented Mr. Roosevelt with a wel
coming medal on behalf of. the city
of New York, and Mr. Roosevelt re
"I can't tell you how deeply I
apprecite this welcome."
To Captain Crosby, of the Rough
Riders, .who introduced ium, to the
reception committee as the various
members passed, he said:
"This is just the kind of thing
I expected. I am so pleased. This
is all so fine and magniiitcnt," mean
while waving his hat at a fleet of
steam yachts and vessels, the rau
cous cries of whose steam whistles
nearly drowied his words.
Gen. George W. Wingat?, who is
a distant cousin of the sirdar of

eral Wingate by the hand, said:
"By, Geoixe! The sirdar tld kp
to be sure to give you hs regards!"
Jacob Riis. one of the colonel's
closest friends,, was seized by both
hands, Roosevelt saying:
"Oh, Jake, I'm so mighty glad to
see vou. I had a delightful revel
in Denmark. In fact, I had a delight
ful time all around."
The welcoming committee set up 8
p'eat shout when Dr. Lyman Ab
bott, editor of The "Outiook, with
which Colonel Roosevelt is now asso
ciated, stepped forward and grasped
Mr, Roosevelt's hand. Colonel Roose
velt sarted a laugh by Baying:
"Well, by George, partner, this ij
the real thing," whereupon some one
in the rear cried:
"Don't talk circulation," and Mr.
Roosevelt quickly taking advantage
of the point, cried aloud: "Well,
may be you think we -are getting
up a pink sheet sporting supple
ment." To former Secretary of the Treas
ury the colonel said:
"Oh, George, this is just fine of
you to come out here and meet me."
A young student of the University
of California stepped up to the ex
hunter, who greeted him, saying:
"You ought to be here to welcome
me. I have given an elephant to your
university and all I can say is it is
Congressman William S. Bennet, of
Brooklyn, as he stepped up to grasp
the hands of Colonel Roosevelt, was
drawn close while the hunter said:
"I got something to say to you,
but I can't say it before these news
"Oh, this is just fine," said Col

Replying to iMayor Gaynor 's
speech of welcome, Colonel Roose
velt said: "I thank you, Mayor
Gaynor. Through you I thank your
committee and through them I wish
to thank the American people for
their greeting. I need hardly say I

COMPLIMENTS CHAMP. CLARK
The Venerable Speaker of the House
in a Virile Speech Defends the Old
Rules Fifty Thousand Bills Intro
duced at Every Session, and Some
of Them the Authors Do Not Want
Passed Speaker Will Always he
Washington, D. C, Special. The
old rules of the House were defended
and tho critics of the Speaker were
severely scored by Speaker Cannon in
a brief address in the House Satur
day. Mr. Cannon contended that the
operation of the rules', as adopted
by the 51st Congress and as enforc
ed by him, had never intefered with
the will of the majority of the House
when an actual majority had been
obtained on any proposition. He
scored newspaper and magazine writ
ers who had criticized him, and said
they had proceeded from a" lack of
knowledge and upon false premises.
The venerable Speaker was greeted
by cheers from his Republican col
leagues when he had concluded.
. Representative Cooper, of Wiscon
sin, one of the leading " insurgents,"
attempted to reply, but there was
Nearly every member of the House
was in his place and every teye - was
centered upon Mr. Cannon as he be
gan to speak. ;
, Mr. Cannon declared that whoever
should be speaker of the House,
whether for two or eight years, could
not escape criticism. He spoke of
the 50,000) bills introduced In each
congress, all with their advocates de
"Many members introduce bills
that they do not want, passed," said
Mr. Cannon, explaining the troubles
that face a Speaker.
He -d-eclaf ed ' that, undc r the rules
as they had been adopted in the 51st
Congress, it had at any time been
possible for a majority in the House
Referring directly to minority lead
er Champ Clark, the speaker suggest
ed that the gentleman from Missouri
would make the best speaker the mi
nority could obtain. This remark
was a signal for an ovation by the
Democrats in honor of their leader.
Continuing, Mr. Cannon said, that
not half as many bills were passed
under the new "unanimous consent"
rule as formerly and he ..ridiculed the
suggestions about his role as a
"czar." Whatever the clamor. might
be he declared that he preferred to
maintain his fidelity to the majority
of the House. Referring to news
paper and magazine "writers, he said
he would rather keep his own self
respect than "to bend to demagogues
and the . self-donstituted righteous
ones who criticise without judgment
and without knowledge."
Bill for $300,000 to Raise Maine.
Washington, Special. A paragraph
in the general deficiency bill, which
would suspend for an indefinite period
the enfrocement of the law recently
passed appropriating $100,000 for
the raising or removal of. the Maine,
stirred up a bitter row in the House
and resulted in the exchange of some
rather warm personalities.
Representative Fitzgerald, of New
York, made the direct charge that'
this paragraph was a deliberate at
tempt to hamstring legislation.
Mr. Tawney then moved to appro
priate $200,000 in addition to the
$100,000 aoporpriated some months
ago. Mr. Fitzgerald moved to make
it $400,000, but the House refused to
sustain him. The House finally "
adopted the Tawney amendment.

tiful supply of trinkets and gumdrops
