Rochester, X. Y., March f. Prince
Henry of Prussia travelled from Chica
go to Niagara Falls today, crossed the
Canadian frontier for a brief stay,
where he was oftlcl.illy welcomed by
the Dominion and tonight resumed his
Journey to Boston over the Xew York
Central lino. His longest stay in al
most thirty hours of continuous travel
ing was at Niagara Kail", which he.
saw bridged In with Ice of winter. lie
viewed the horseshoe falls from tabic
lock, and the American falls from the
ledge over the whirlpool on the Can
adian shore, rode down the gorge to a
point below the lower whirlpool, and
then inspected the plant of the Niagara
Power company which converts the
force of nature to the purpose of eom
inrico. He was much Impressed by the
falls and as he stood on table rock
looking across at the horseshoe he
"It Is magnificent; it Is grand."
He was greatly Impressed by the
swirling rapids down In the gorge and
when he left his car at the whirlpool
stood for several minutes watching the
play on the water.
The special train had covered the
distance between Milwaukee and Chi
cago, crossed Indiana, and was well on
its way over Ohio before Prince Henry
arose. He was worn out when he left
Milwaukee and did not respond to the
demonstration made by the people of
Toledo and Sandusky. He did not get
notice of the Intentions of the citizens
of Toledo to formally receive him and
his first knowledge of their plan was
conveyed to him by their band playing
"Die Wneht Am llheln." It was too
late then to get up and Toledo did not
see him. At Cleveland there was a
filendly demonstration and Peter
Karpp. foimerly a busier in the Ger
man army, climbed Into the car for a
reunion that was pleasant on both
sloes. Peter Knipp had been a sailor
with the prince back in 1S77 and they
were shipmates for more than two
years. The prince recogtvTSc'u' Peter at
once and taking him by the hand led
him Into the car. They talked over the
old days and an admiring crowd looked
on in apprlval. At Erie, Pa., was a
crowd that made the most dangerous
jam ot the entire Journey. Women and
children were wedged In against the
train and the effort to check the swirl
ing crowd that pressed in from the rear
was useless. Seveial women fainted
and anybody anywhere near the centre
of the crowd was submitted to danger
Mrs. Gridley Presented.
Mrs. Harriet Gildloy and Miss Oirld
lcy, widow ami daughter ol Captain C,
V Gridley, the man who taught on
the Olympia at Manila bay. were re
ceived on the train by Admiral Uveitis,
who went to tho naval academy with
the dead captain, and were presented
to the prince. All through the morn
ing, as the train ran through a corner
of Pennsylvania and out Into the state
of New York, there were crowds at
the stations, anxious to see the prince
mid tender assurances of friendship.
Dunkirk had its band out and at Buf
falo Mayor Knight welcomed the
prince, and tho local Gorman singing
societies sang, it 'was S.K o'clock
when the special arrived tit Buffalo,
and fifteen minutes later It was
steaming out to Niagara Kails. At
jNtngara Falls station the prince was
met by Mayor Hutlcr and a large re-
Iceptlop committee, and formally bld-
Itleu to tho city.
Ahon Mayor Butler concluded, Dr.
William Snyder spoke, In behalf of the
Germans of the city. The prince did
not make a speech In response, but
thanked both of them for their'
greeting, The prlnco was then driven
to the Canadian side, accompanied by
a mounted escort, niailo up of local
militia officers, .Midway on tho bridge
that spans tho rapids, the prlnco was
not by tho man who spoke for tho
I Canadian government and people. Ma
jor F-. S, Maude, military secretary
for Lord Mlnto, governor genet al of
Canada, presented tho formal greet
ing of his chief, and tho Hon. It. Ilur-
eourt, in Inlfter of education for On-
Itailo, delivered the addresses passed
jy the legislature of Ontario.
Karl Mueller presented an address In
iiehalf of the municipality of Berlin,
hit,, and F. Hopp, German consul at
lUonlii'Ml; Samuel Xordheljner, Uei-
bnuu consul at Toronto, and V. Hes
lieler, German consul at AViimlpeK,
Lvcri! Introduced The prince thanked
he Canadians for tlulr coidlallty, mid
leaving his American military iscort
liehlud. drov on to tho Canadian t-ldc.
s his carriage turned up toward the
ills, Mayor Bulk), who, with Admiral
Ivans, was riding with him, said to
lilm. "There at the gallery Is tho best
i lew of the American fulls, but on ac-
punt of the fallow ou cannot get It."
"You may not be able to climb across
there, but I am going to."
Suiting the action to his words, the
prince jumped out of tho carriage and
climbed through the snow drifts to the
gallery on the ledge over tho rapids,
where he showed tho way. Others fol
lowed, and soon there was a little
crowd with him. Colonel Percy Sher
wood, chief of the dominion police of
Canada, was on hand with a force of
his men and they closely guarded the
prince during his stay on the Canadian
ground. After viewing the American
falls, the prince drove on to Ilia table
rock, where he again dismounted. The
horseshoe falls were clear of Ice, rind
the prince got an excellent view of
them. Thorn was a large space of
clear water below the falls, but mid
way to tho first bridge the Ice was still
Intact and firm.
The prince was driven bad? to tho
town of Niagara Falls, and there
transferred to a special electric car
for the trip down the gorge. He left
the car at the whirlpool rapids and,
with his suite, walked down to the
bank. Returning to Niagara, he was
taken to tho power house of the
Niagara Power company and, with
William IJ. Kanklne, vice president of
the corporation, as guide, made a com
plete tour of the plant. He asked a
number of questions about the amount
of power generated, the means used,
and the manner and distance of trans
mission. When he left, he thanked
Mr. Hanklne for showing him through
the place. As the party was leaving
the power house. Admiral Evans felt
something tugging at his coat. He
turned to find the hand of a youthful
looking pickpocket in one of his pock
ets. As tho admiral shook him off
coolly, he said:
"Young man, you'll find my purse
In another pocket." The admiral did
not delay long enough to give the thief
Into custody. At 6 o'clock, the prince
was back aboard his train, and tlfteen
minutes later departed for Boston,
with Rochester and Syracuse sched
uled for brief stops. George II. Dan
iels, general passenger agent of the
New York Central, joined the special
at Buffalo and will go through with
It to Boston and New York. He was
presented to the prince.
Exercises at Rochester.
Fully 20,000 people crowded the train
shed and depot of the New York Cen
tral and additional thousands lined the
tracks for blocks east and west of the
depot or took up positions of vantage
on roofs and In windows of tall building'-,
when at S:l.' the at rival of Prince
Henry's special train at the city line
was announced by the firing of a bomb
at the end of the tialn house, immed
iately red tire on the tops of hundreds
of tall buildings burst forth until the
city semed to be suffering a vast con
flagration; seaichlights pointed out the
American and German flags suspended
fjom kites In mid air and five minutes
later amidst a grand pyrotechnic dis
play the tialn bearing the royal visitor
diew slowly Into the crowded train
shed. As the train pulled into the sta
tion the 54th regiment band played
"Die Wach t Am llheln." and a salute
of :il guns was tired, but the balance
of the programme was not carried out
as had been planned. The First and
Eighth Separate companies and the
Second naval reserves had been sta
tioned at both ends of the train shed
in order to hold the crowds In check
but as the last car of the prince's train
missed Into the roped off areaii, the
singing Huong outside with thunderous
cheers brushed the militia men aside
and thirty seconds later had packed
to suffocation every Inch of space in
the train house and depot. Fully a
dozen women fainted In the ciush and
weie with great difficulty taken out.
One or two of the apparently llteless
women were pushed along over the
heads ot tho ii..!lt!tude to places where
the Jam was a little lees seveie and
then taken to places of safety and med
ical assistance summoned. Fortunately
none were seilously Injured,
in the meantime the vast assemblage
was cheering and shouting as If mad.
After several fruitless efforts had been
inado to check the enthusiastic out
burst the reception committee gave up
that portion of the programme which
called for singing by tho German socle
ties, music by the bands, etc., and
boarding the prince's car were Intro

Speaker Henderson nnd Representa
tive Cannon Confer with Presi
dent Upon the Subject.
By Kielmlve Wire from 'tlic Associated 1'im.
Washington, March 3. Speaker Hen
derson and Representative Cannon, ot
Illinois, ealred at the white house to
day and discussed with President
Roosevelt the subject of Cuban reci
procity and the sentiment thereon In
Active canvassing continued among
Republican members today, prelimin
ary to the third caucus on Cuban reci
procity, to be held tomorrow night.
The most positive claims were made
by those opposed to Representative
Payne's twenty per cent, reciprocity
plan, that there was a clear majority
Mr. Payne and his associates did not
concede this, however, and expressed
the belief that a concession to Cuba
ultimately will bo granted. It was said
In this connection that Speaker Hen
derson Is now favorable to the position
taken by the majority on the ways
and means committee, and that this
would exert much inlluence In shaping
the final outcome.
' During the day, several members of
the cabinet weie called on by Messrs.
Tawney, of the wavs and means com
mittee, who has proposed the rebate
plan us a substitute for Chairman
Payne's twenty per cent, reciprocity
plan, and Morris, of Minnesota, who
also has proposed a plan differing from
that of Mr. Payne. As an outcome of
these calls it was asserted thut three
members of the cabinet, namely, Post
master General Payne, Secretary Shaw
and Secretary Wilson, were hopeful of
seeing a solution of the problem, which
would not endanger any American in
dustry. This 'was construed in some
quarters to show a division In the cabi
net, but it was stated by those con
versant with the situation that the at
titude of cabinet members did not war
rant iiiiv such construction.
Later In the day Representative
Tawney called at the white house and
had a ciiiilirer.ee lasting neaily an hour
nnd a li'ilf with the president. At Its
conclusion Mr. Tawney joined several
of his associates who are opposed to the
Payne resolution. It developed that
Mr. Tawney had told the president
there was little or no possibility of
adopting of the Payne plan by the Re
publican conference, and that If it wete
adopted some -10 Republican members
would not consider themselves bound
nv.i would carry the question to the
.1oor of the house, where there would
be additional complications owing to
the attitude of Democratic members.
Tl e president l understood to have
made his proposition finite clear and
In so doing Is said to have removed
everal misapprehensions which have
been afloat of late. He said he had
no Inteuttoi. at present of sending a
special message to congress on the
subject. The piesident expressed the
most earnest solicitude that a satlsfac
toi y adjustment be lenched by con
gieps, saying that this was an "Inher
ited pioblem," meaning that It had
come to him from the McKlnley nil
ministration. Furthermore, the presl
dtnt, it Is assorted, Indicated mi posi
tive determination in favor of any par
ticular Idea but rather a desire that
congress should deal with the subject
according to Its best Judgment. After
hearing from Mr. Tawney his associates
expressed the belief that the president
would accept the rebate proposition If
congress snit It to him. They also weie.
considerably encouraged to hear from
Mr. Tawney that the president was not
niyli g uown any emphatic ultimatum
In iavor of the plan as presented by

Evidence Given on Him Before the
A LIVELY TILT WITH
Senator Patterson Provokes General
Hughes to a State of Impatience
nnd Irritability by His Questions.
An Apparent Effort to Place the
Witness in the Attitude of Criti
cizing n Superior Officer.
By Kcluilic Wire from The Associated 1'rcs.c.
Washington, D. C, March 5. General
Hughes, was subjected to a series of
questions by Senator Patterson and
several other minority members of the
senate committee on the Philippines In
the course of his testimony before that
committee today. In reply to these
questions, he said the Filipino forces
would have been of but little assist
ance If It had been necessary to cap
ture Manila from the Spaniards by as
sault. In reply to further questions, the
witness said the Filipinos had aided
the Americans materially by their
knowledge of the country and the ac
commodations they had supplied, but
that the Filipinos have never been con
sidered a part of the fighting force In
the operations against the Spanish
forces. "Tho principal consideration In
connection with them was to keep
them out of the way," he said.
In response to further questioning by
Air. Patterson, General Hughes said ho
certainly would construe General Otis'
remark, referred to In his report, of
September 13, 1S98, that he would use
force to compel the Insurgent troops to
retire to the line designated by Gen
eral Merritt, as meaning that he would
use the United States military forces.
Senator Patterson was presslnc Gen
eral Hughes as to the motive of Gen
eral Otis for requiring the insurgents
to retire to the line designated, when
Senators Beverldge, McComas and
Lodge objected, saying It was unfair
to the witness to ask the question.
General Hughes said, however, that
Aguinaldo complied with the order,
except as to one small outlying district,
and that at that time there was no In
dication of enmity on the part of the
Senator Patterson, after reading from
the report of General Otis, in which he
had stated that with the navy on one
side and the Insurgents on the other
the Spaniards had been bottled up in
Manlln, remarked that this statement
did not coincide with that ot General
"Why not?" sharply asked the gen
eral. Mr. Beveridge Objects.
Mr. Beverldge vigorously objected
to this line of questioning, tending, he
said, to put General Hughes in the at
titude of criticising u superior otllcer.
General Hughes, showing some Im
"There Is no difference between us.
No civilized man would huve left
Manila to the Insurrectos."
Senator Lodge, addressing Senator
Patterson, with some degree of irri
"Vou must not ask General Hughes
to criticise his superior otllcer, his re
ports or anything else."
General Hughes "General Otis Is
strong enough to stand criticism."
Air. Patterson disclaimed that he
was criticising General Otis, which
brought u quick retort from General
Hughes, who remarked:
"Then you are trying to criticise
"I am only trying to reconcile the
differences between you and General
Otis," answered Senator Patterson,
"If there are any (inferences be
tween General Otis and myself and
you will point them out, I will try to
set them right," replied General
Hughes, with some warmth of feeling.
This ended the colloquy nnd Senator
Rawlins asked a few questions of the
witness intending to bring out an ad
mission that the Initial outbreak oc
curred outside Manila, but General
Hughes Insisted that It happened In
side the town.
