The blue and Bray uniform of the Spanish war veterans, whose third annual reunion is being made memorable and historical by the presence of President Theodore Roosevelt, is seen at every turn in Detroit, additional delegates and veterans arriving on every train. The opportunity to see and cheer the president brought to Detroit thousands of people from nearby cities and towns. President Roosevelt was given a tremendous ovation when he stepped out of the Cadillac and into his carriage to begin the drive to the armory. Washington and Michigan avenues were jammed with people who made the air ring with their cheers as the president drove briskly away from the hotel in the same carriage he used on his drive Sunday afternoon. A squad of mounted police rode before his carriage and a squad of officers on bicycles circled about it. It was a continuous cheer that greeted the president on his drive, which took about five minutes. A stir at the door announced to those in the armory that the president had arrived. All stood upon their feet and as the presidential party entered and walked down the main aisle to the speakers' platform, a great shout went up that made the armory ring. Again and again the veterans cheered the president and he bowed his thanks repeatedly. Nor were the people in the galleries behind in their applause. It was many minutes before quiet was restored. When quiet had been restored and the presidential party had found seats on the platform. General Wrell, acting commander-in-chief, introduced Mayor William C. Maybury, who welcomed the Spanish war veterans to the city. When he mentioned President Roosevelt's name in his short address, it brought every soldier to his feet and a tremendous cheer went up. The president expressed pleasure at having the chance of being greeted by his comrades and greeting them in return. The men who served in the Spanish war. he said, if they did their duty well, are comrades and brothers from now until the end of our days (applause). He said he did not need any urging to accept the invitation to attend the meeting of the Spanish war veterans. The president spoke of the late war and said that the only complaint heard was that there was not enough war to go around. The spirit that drove the men on In this war. was the same spirit that made the memorable meeting of Lee and Grant at Appomattox possible. The president said the spirit he wanted to see in a man was that spirit which makes him do his duty, great or small. He liked particularly the way in which our young men went into the ranks to do their duty as they saw it. He thought it a good thing that men of different callings should be associated together to learn the lesson of quality and brotherhood among Americans. "We are proud of what our troops have done; we are proud of what our civil authorities are doing over there in the Philippines and we are proud of you, my comrades, who did their duty when the country called them to arms, who imitate those from '61 to '63 who did their duty and who are imitating the men who disbanded in 65 by coming back to civil life with the firm resolution to do their duty as citizens Just as faithfully as ever they did it as soldiers. I thank you. As he finished a storm of applause broke forth that ended in three times three cheers. While the president was speaking, Miss Clara Barton entered the hall and took a seat on the platform. General Urell, after calling for three more cheers for President Roosevelt, told the soldiers that the good angel was present, and then said- "I will now detail Comrade Roosevelt to escort Miss Barton to a seat on hie left hand." Amid thunderous cheers the president gallant y escorted Miss Barton to a chair on his left Adjutant General Dyer of Washington responded to Mayor May-bury's address of welcome on behalf of the veterans. This was to have ended the first session of the conven-tlon but General Bliss asked a few moments' indulgence. Explaining that he was to present service medals to Michigan veterans of the Spanish war when the convention adjourned, Governor Bliss paid he wished first to present Comrade Teddy Roosevelt with one. He accordingly requested Mrs. Lewis of the Ladies' auxiliary to present the medal to the president. The presentation was made amid the greatest enthusiasm. The convention then adjourned and the president and party left the armory. They drove Immediately to the steamer Tashmoo, which was boarded for a ride on the river. In addition to the presidential party there were several hundred delegates to the reunion aboard the steamer The Tashmoo returned with the party in time for the president to review the big parade of veterans and local mllitarv. A ROYAL SCANDAL. Quarrel Takes PI ice In Death Chamber of Helgluiu's Queen. Rrussels, Sept. 22. The scandal arising from the ievival of the family quarrel between King Leopold and his daughter, the Princess Stephanie (Countess of I.onyay) beside the bier of the late Queen Marie Henriette at Spa Sunday, is agitating all classes. Popular sympathy on all sides is expressed for the princess, who although deeply affected by the incident, makes no complaint. The princess herself has given out a single statement of the facts as follows: "The precise facts are these. 1 was praying at the bier of the queen, when some one came to tell me the king would not receive me. I immediately left the death chamber. I had no interview with his majesty." It was hoped by the public, who applauded Princess Stephanie's match with the Count Lonyay, that the death of the queen would lead to healing the rupture, but the incident at Spa is taken to demonstrate that the king is as irreconcilable as ever to what he openly has designated as a mesalliance.

On the reassembling of the international arbitration court in the hearing of the claims of the United States against Mexico, growing out of the Pius fund of California. GarrettNlcErny, the legal adviser of Archbishop Riordon of San Francisco, resumed his address, which was adjourned from Sept. 17. He contended that the statute of limitation deprived the Jesuits of the control of the Pius fund, after Spain, Mexico and the bishops of California had succeeded as administrators. The archbishop of California, delegated"as administrator by Mexico In 1840, was legally entitled to both the capital and interest. The decision of the arbitration commission in 1896, condemning Mexico to pay, ought, Mr. MeErney asserted, to be void, as beyond appeal. Packing House Combine.

He says his name is Bert Edwards, that he is 26 years old, and formerly lived with his stepfather, Henry Carruthers, and his mother in Portland, Or.

SENATOR PLATT SPEAKS HIS MIND. Republican State Convention lu New York a Quiet A flair Henderson's Friends Control situation lu low.i will Not Resign. Saratoga. N. Y., Sept. 22. If it were not for some differences over the nominatiein ef a lieutenant governor and less serious one's over the nomination for secretary of state, there weuld be positively apathy here preceding the Republican state convention. Many delegates are on the ground. There is little or no change in the situation concerning the ticket. It was said that George R. Sheldem of New York city, has pledges, which would give him on the first ballot 450 votes out of 974. Kings county will cast 130 votes fer Norman S. Dike, unless he is withdrawn. Should Mr. Sheldon fail te receive a majority on the first ballot Kings county, it is believed, could switch em the second ballot and join Wayne and Onondaga in voting for Timothy Woodruff, the present incumbent. The- general opinion, however, was that by the time nominatiems are te be made there will be but one candidate for lieutenant governor. Qeorge R. Bheldon. Senateir Piatt, speaking of the lieutenant governorship, said: "Mr. Woodruff will not he the candidate of the eonventiem. It would be peor policy, indeed, to get the people Into the belief that one person can confiscate an e)ftice for an indefinite period. Mr. Woodruff has been treateel in an unprecedentedly generous way by his party anel I believe the present Hurry is by Ill-advised friends of his." "Who, in your judgment, will be the candidate?" "I presume Mr. Sheldon. I find that the delegates are mainly feir him." Whe'n shown Mr. Piatt's statement, Lieutenant Governor Woodruff said that he had announced repeatedly that he was not a candidate anel he now declared that he would nei accept nomination under any circumstance s. "Other than this." ho added, "if all my frienels in the party, and that includes Senateir Piatt, would withdraw their Objection to my nomination and advise me to accept it I might do so. I have no Idea at all that they will do this. At the same time I cannot stop my personal friends from mentioning me." Will Retain Speakership. Chicago, Sept. 22. While en mute to Atlantic City.
