for a demonstration of the kind, but
such an arrangement was necessary
in order to suit the president's other
arrangements. The parade was Hie
biggest affair of the kind ever seen in
this part of the state. Besides the
man Spanish war veterans, whose an-
nual encampment is in progress Ijere,
the line embraced several regiment*
of the Illinois National Guard, a por-
tion of the Twentieth infantry from
Fort Sheridan, three sections of Gat-
ling gun squads and a number o'

President Roosevelt Visits the Toml-
Springfield, Hi.. Jnne 4.—President
Roosevelt spent four hours In the cap
ital city of Illinois today and the wel-
come he received was one of the most
enthusiastic he has encountered on
his long trip across the continent
The special train reached the city
shortly after 10 o'clock this morning
and the president found a sea of hu-
manity ebbing and flowing about th"
stution and the adjoining streets. Sol-
diers and police formed an escort and
cleared the wav to the president’s car-
riage. Governor Yates. Senator Cul-
lotr. and other public men were on
hand to bill welcome to tbe chief ex-
ecutive of the nation.
The day's program was crowded
with interesting features and the dis-
tinguished visitor was allowed scarce-
ly time for a luncheon at the execu-
tive mansion with the governor and
a number of invited guests. The chief
event of the day was the dedication of
th» magnificent new armory building.
Tbe structure stands opposite the
Rtateliouse and both inside and out It
was elaborately dressed in flags and
bcr.ting in honor of the occasion. Ten
thousand persons occupied seats in
the auditorium and other places where
steading room could be had, while
they listened to the president's ad-
dress. The president was introduced
by Governor Yates and both received
vociferous welcome. •
Though the time was exceedingly
limited In view of the long program
of public functions, the president
found time for a hurried visit to Lin
coir's tomb, where he deposited a
handsome wreath on the sarcophagus
of the martyred president
At 2 o'clock the journey was re-
sumed. Stops at Decatur and Dan-
ville late this uftemoon are the last
scheduled for the longest trip ever
undertaken by a president of the
