| I I . II I ...... PRESIDENT M'KINLEY VIEWS THE LAUNCHING OF THE OHIO Sa~ Francisco, May 18.--.Dramatic and picturesque as was the sight of 14,000 tons of steel sliding into the full breasted tide of San Francisco bay, it was not as splendid and magnificent as the great naval pageant which ac- companied it, nor as profoundly im- "presslve as the greeting extended to the President by the 4,500 dmployes of the ship yard. With the threat of a great strike im- pending, the President's words to the working men to-day have an added slg. niflcance and his reference to expan- sion and other national questious make hls speech, probably the last he will ever deliver on his present tom', in every respect a notable one. When the President left the sick room of his wife every arrangement had been made to notify him on the instant of any change for the worse In her condition. He was driven to the wharf in a closed carriage, escorted by a squad of mounted police. The Gabinet and other distinguished guests were already aboard the trans- port tug Slocum, which waste convey the party to the Union Iron Works two miles up the bay, when he arrived. The President's flag, an eagle and a shield on a blue field, was flying from the main and the Union Jack was at the bow as he stepped smilingly up the gangway to the accompaniment of the cheers of the thousands who crowded the neighboring pier heads. Every wharf on the sea front swarmed with people. Up near the ship yards the grim warships of the Pacific squadron were swinging at an- chor, with streams of signal flags ex- tending fore and aft over the peaks from prow to taffrail. Off near Goat Island lay the transport Sheridan, travel stained from her long Journey across the Pacific. She had Just ar- ".rived from the Philippines and still bad aboard the Forty-second and Forty-sixth infantry which she had brought home. The President saw her at once and requested_ that the course of the Slo- cure be changed to allow him to pass near her. As the Slocum approached the~big transport there was a scene of almost frenzied enthusiasm aboard. The soldiers, all in their service uni- forms, rushed to the side sad sent up cheer upon cheer at the sight of the President of the United States come to welcome them home. The band on the after deck struck up the 'Star-Spangled Banner." Ther sol- diers climbed the rails and ratlines and almost drowned the music with their shouts. They swung their hats and acted like madmen. Several of them brought their reglmantal flags and waved them frantically to and fro from the bridge. The ensign at the stern was dipped again and again. The salute was answered by the Slocum. The President was plainly moved by the remarkable demonstration. As the Slocum drew near the llne of steel-clad thunderers of the deep, with lackies lining the rails, the marine guards drawn up aft and officers In full uniform on the bridges, "a puff of smoke burst like a white balloon from the port quarter of the battleship Wis- consin. Admiral Casey's flagship. Boom! came the report. It was the first gun from the ships--the first of of the twenty-one. Each of the warships, the big, sav- age battleship Iowa, the long, lean cruisers Philadelphia and Adams. the little torpedo boat Farragut and the revenue cutter McCulloeh. which was With Dewey at Manila. turned loose their secondary batteries as the Slo- cure slowly steamed by. Beyond the warships the lltte tug threaded her way through the hell- day fleet of steamers, yachts, tugs, barges and every variety of water craft Jammed about the front of the ship yard. Each was black with cheering pep. Ple and there was hardly one of them which did not have a saluting gun of some sort to.add its voice to the roar of welcome that greeted the President from the dense crowd of workmen gathered upon the pier.' Ashore to the right was a stand cov- ered with acres of 0apple and beyond that a hill alive with them. Up the Pier a bro~d aisle of white muslin ran through the workmen packed on eith- er side. Up this path, -arched over With flags and banners, one of them bearing the inscription: "The Oregon has made her record: watch the Ohio,' the President and his party moved to a stand where the representative of the 4,500 employes of the Union Iron Works, in a neat speech, in which he asked a heartfelt blesmtng upon .the head of the Presidevt and expressed tender sympathy for his suffering wife, presented the President as a token of the e~teem, of the workmen, ~lth a gold plate engraved with a suitable inscription. "The Presldenffs resl~nse aroused vnuch enthusiasm. It was in part as follows: "I am Inexpressibly thankful to the l~uler of us for his goodheas and his mercy, which have made it possible for me tO be with you here to-day. "I have wanted to see the men of the UniOn Iron Works. I have known 6f their skill. I have seen their gen- ius dtsplaFed in their workmanship. I have observed what your spokesman has so well said, that suffering under" ~alddisadvantages of fuel, indeed thou. s 0f miles away from the raw ma- erlalm which go to make a ship, you have yet persevered and triumphed and made as good ships as have ever 8aiI~l the sees. "As the head of the nation, I want to thank the people of this coast for their noble work during the Spanish ~ar. And I want to make special ref- erence and acknowledgement, for I raay~ not have another opportunity, to the gallant First California volun- teers, that were amopg the first in the field and almost the last o leare ~it, and perform~l conspicuously gallant I~rvlc~ in the eompaign In the Phil- Ippine lslands~ "No one can stand surrounded by tl~ Workmen of this great eatablish- v~el~t without recalling the aplendRl .Work dose by the ships yoii hazel ~l!ded and their prlcelces services to ] tl~_ Country, [ t~l'Whh~n Admiral Dewey was direct. [ to lg0to Manila and destroy the[ lmnl#~i']~ee vr capture it, he~ made [ the Olympia, which you builded, his flagship, and his command, directed from that ship, perfomed one of the most brilliant achievements in the an- nals of the American navy. "Nor can we forget for a moment that it was yot~r skill and genius that made the Oregon. The hours of anx- ious waiting will never be known when the Oregon started to join the fleet at Santiago. Days and days we heard not one word from her. But we had confidence in the stout ship you had builded, and we had confidence in that gallant officer, Captain Clark, who commanded it. I shall never for- get the early morning when Captain Clark telegraphed from the Florida shore: " 'The Oregon is here and needs no repairs and is ready for action. "And she went and performed mag- nificent service for the country. I want to thank you men of the Union Iron Works for your assistance in thd defense of our common country. I want to thank you for having builded ships that have maintained the honor of the United States and added new glory to the navy of the United States. "I don't want a ship in the American navy built this year to be any better than the Ohio. I say that to you among ourselves. I say it to you work- men who are going to build her, for I have a great deal of pride in the old state. "I have a great deal of pride in the name, but proud as I am of my native state. I am a thousand times more proud of the nation that is over all the states, supreme and sovereign and glorious in its mission of good will and liberty to all mankind. "What we want is to build more ships. We ought to have a good com- mercial line from here to the Philip- pines, made in the Union Iron Works, built by American workingmen and manned by American sailors and car- rying the American flag. "We have overcome distance. We not only want a commercial line. but we want a cable from here to the Phil- ippines. "We want it to be an "American cable, that cannot be cut by any power in the world. They say trade follows the flag. The telegraph must follow trade. "My fellow citizens, we have great problems before us. We never had more important ones. We have ex- panded. Do you want to contract? It is not a question of whether we will acquire the Philippines or Porto Rico, or Guam, or Wake island, or Hawaii, or Tutuila. We have ac- quired them: they are ours. The ques- tion is, shall we give them up? (Gen- eral cry of "No.") And from one end of this country to the other comes answer. They are ours not to sub- jugate, but to emancipate; not o rule in the power of might, but to take to the distant people the principles of liberty, and freedom of conscience and of opportunity that are enjoyed by the people of the United States. "Our flag never goes anywhere' ex- cept it carries blessings. Our flag never oppressed anybody, but it has given freedom to every people over whom it has floated. "Having said this much, I only want to thank you all for this cordial wel- come. I am glad again o meet the workingmen of my country. All my public life has been devoted in effort to giving the workingmen the best opportunity, the best chance for good wages and steady employment. "When labor is well employed, the country is safe, and when labor is well employed there is contentment and happiness in the homes of the labor- ing men. "Let me say that I shall carry this beautiful souvenir of the employes of the Union Iron Works with me and it shall abide with me so long as I" live, and shall be passed along to those of my family that shall follow me as ~)ne of the dearest token I have ever re- ceived from my fellow countrymen." The ceremonies connected with the launching were simple. There was no speech-making. Mrs. Ida Eckert Law- rence of Ohio read an original poem. At 12:22~ two and one-half minutes before the tide was at its highest, the time set for its launching, there sud- denly shot up into the face of the in- dicator "Ready." Miss Barber pressed the button. The last block fell away. At the same time Miss Helen Deshles, a young lady of seventeen, in a light gown, with her hair braided dow~ her back in school- girl fashion, let go of the bottle of champagne suspended at the side of the bow by a red, white and blue rib- ben, and as it crashed against the side she uttered the words, "I christen thee 'Ohio.'" Released from its bonds the heavy hull of 14,000 tons of steel went ploughing through the thick grease of its cradle. Slowly, a~ first, then faster and faster, she slid down the ways, taking the flood majestically and pil- ing up the water in great waves be- fore her. The~ band crashed, whistles blew and the multitude shouted. No ship ever given to~ the navy has taken her lfiltlal plunge into the sea under more favorable auspices, or in the presence of a more distinglilshed company. The trip back to the city was al- most a repetition of the Journey to the yard. There was the same wild dem. castration from sea and shore., Aeron the Continent, Cleveland, 0., May 19.--rFhe over- land automobile trip from San Fran- cisco to New York Ctty, conducted by Alexander Winton and Charles B, Shanks, will iYegin to-morrow morning at 7:15 o'clock from San Francisco.

The people of the Cripple Creek dis- trlct are not very well saflsf~bd with the fact that President McKinley, ac- cording o the present schedule, will only spend about an hour and a half in the town of the district. Elaborate prepal~tions are being made for Denver's annual Festival of Mountain and Plain. More money is being subscribed than ever before and ~ts more varied and inte~:esting program being arranged. The railroads promise the usual low rates. tThe Pagosa Springs correspondent of the Denver News says it is report- ed that a syndicate has been organ- iz~d to erect a 100-room hotel at the Springs, and that it is rumored that McPhee & McGlnnity of Denver are thinking of purchasing the property. Most of the teachers of Colorado Springs and Colorado City recently made an excursion to Cripple Creek over the Short Line. A bontaniesl party of thirty students of Colorado College also went up to the camp and spent he day at Point Sublime. The American Association for the Advancement of Science will hold its annual meeting in Denver August 24th to August 31st. The association has about 2.400 members, among whom are the presidents of most of the lead- Ing universities and colleges. it Is stated that Miss Nellie Lewis, who secured Judgment against Sam Strong for $50,000, and who was the ~tar witness in the trial against Sam Strong Just cbncluded in Denver, pro. poses to incorporate her experiences with Strong In a novel, which is to be writen for her by a man.

WASHINGTON GOSSIL The War Department has published the reorganization order prescribing the strength of the various branches of the military service upon the basis of 77,287 men and a staff of 2,783 men, the enlisted strength being 74,504 men. By the order each cavalry regiment will consist of twelve cavalry troops of eighty-five enlisted men each, making the total strength of the cavalry branch 15,840 men. The coast artillery will consist of 126 companies of 109 en- listed men each, making 13,734, and the field artillery of thirty batteries of lo0 men each, making a total artillery force, field and coast, of 18,862 enlist- ed men. The thirty infantry regiments will consist of twelve companies of 104 enlisted men each, making the infantry strength 38,520 enlisted men. The three engineer battalions mill have four companies of 104 enlisted men each, with a band, and will have a strength of 1,282 enlisted men. About the middle of September the Postoffice Department will advertise for proposals for carrying the ~nails o~ all star routes in Colorado, Wyoming and all other western states, the con- tracts to cover a period of four years. In the letting of new contracts, the de- 0artment will require that bidders shall live in the vicinity of theirroutes, thUS putting an end to the speculative bidding which has prevailed in the past, whereby eastern contractors have secured a majority of western contracts at a low figure, and depend- ing upon the local sub-contractors to perform the work required. This ser- vice has never been satisfactory. Aside from this innovation, however, all bid- ders will be given to understand that each contract calls for the new system of box delivery, whereby carriers will be required to deposit nmil in boxes of settlers living along their routes, where such settlers request such ser. vice and erect boxes along the road- side. It is expected that the new con- tracts will be at slightly advanced rates, but the fact that local bidders will be recognized over speculators, and because of the extra service re- quired by the. box delivery, the depart- ment thinks the extra expenditure is Justified. Some time next fall. says William E. Curtis in the Chicago Record, when {he new desks which have been ordered for the House of Representatives have been delivered by the contractors, the old desks, which have been in use since 1872, will be sold at auction, and there will doubtless be a demand by hero worshipers for those which were used by President McKinley, Colonel Bryan. Thomas B. Reed. John G. Car- lisle, Mr. Blaine, General Garfield, Sunset Cox and other famous mere Congress provided that members of the house cou~l have the privilege of buy- ing their dwn desks at a given price, and many of them will doubtless choose to do so. There was a similar auction sale when the desks were changed in 1872, and active bidding for those which had been used by Henry Clay and other famous men of the past generation. You will find now in the houses of old residents of Wash- ington some (~ those desks, and they are highly treasured. " It should be enid, however, that there are always several desks arttributed to famous men. This is unavoidable, because an. der the rule of the House the desks are drawnby lot at the beginning of every Congress, and the members seldom oc- cupy the same seat twice in succession. The desks are numbered and the door- keepers have a record of their history. By~ looking at the book they can tell you who has used any one of the desks you may happen, to name. You will find half a dozen with which Mr. Blaine has been associated, and an equal number that have been used by Pre~tclenf McKinley. This detracts somewhat from their value, but does not destroy the sentiment. The~ United States geological survey has completed its plan of operations for the new fiscal year. It includes zome very important work in Colorado and the neighboring states of the Rocky mountain region. The triangu. lotion necessary for the control of an area in the vicinity of Onray will be executed.

Whitman Cross, Ernest Howe aud J: Morgan Clemens are as- signed to the continuation of the sur- vey of the San Juan district and the Silverton~ Engineer mountain and Needle mou1~tain qtmdrangles. N.H. Darton will have charge of a study of the underground waters in the foothills and plains adjacent to the Big Horn mountains. S. F. Emmons, geologist in charge of metallic ores, will make a re-study of the Lesdville district and also visit various points in Wyoming and Arizona. In the Leadvllle work he will be assisted by John D. Irving. Dr. George R. Girty will give his at- tention to a study of the Permian fos- sils in, southern New Mexico. It. F. Hill is to complete fhe investigation of the Rio Grande region.
