Th* President was given a magnifi
cent ovation when h* arose to speak
and was frequently applauded. He said:
The President's Speech.
Mr. Chairman. My Fellow Cltjxcns:
I have been received by man peo
ple and in many places, west and north,
and south aod east, but nowhere have
I had a welcome that has given me
greater pleasure than you extend to me
here today. I wish It wan In my pow
er to maty- suitable response to the
gracious and eloquent words of hin)
whom you have chosen to speak In your
behalf .my old friend, whom 1 met for
the first time In the congress of the
United States. It Is Indeed an honor
totne, and one that shall never la* for
gotten to stand In the jdaee associated
with the names of Washington and
Lafayette and Clay and Webster. It
is also a pleasure to me to be in the
city where the gallant cavalry officer,
General Joe Wheeler was born. (Ap
plause.) It is a pleasure to me to meet
in this welcome these veterans of the
gray, these ex-Confederate soldiers,
(applause), and to feel that In common
with the veterans of the blue and all
their fellow citizens they are In heart
touch with the alms and purposes of
this great republic. (Applause.)
What a wonderful country we have!
With what pride the contemplation of
its history Alls us all! When Wash
ington was here we had a little over
3,000,000 of people: we hate J 8,000,000 to
day. We have added vastly to our ter
ritory. We are today the largest man
ufacturing and the largest agricultural
nation of the world. (Applause.) Our
commerce floats on every sea, and only
day before yesterday I saw' that a thou
sand tons of shill plates had been land
ed in Glasgow, Scotland, and what is
even more significant, It was carried
upon a ship bearing the American flag.
My fellow citizens, I congratulate
you on the prosperity of the country, f
const atulate you on the progress it has
made In the last third of a century, but
I congratulate you even mote because
as a. people we are united and more de
voted to national purposes and more
imbued with the true national spirit
