By Exclusive Wire from llic .--soelatcd l'ies.
Philadelphia, Sept. 1. The oiganized
woikmen or Philadelphia today paid
their tilhute to John Mitchell, pi evident
of the United Mine AVoikers of Amei
ica, and at the same tlmo .showed tholr
sympathy In a substantial way for the
stilklng anthracite mine workcis of
Pennsylvania. The presence of tho
minei ' chief was made the occasion of
probably the gteutest demonstiatlon
that oipaniptl l.iboi has eer held on
Labor day. In the foienoon a paiade
was held, under the auspices of the
Central Labor union, In which neatly
all the tiudcs of the city were lepie
sented. "It Is estimated that moie than
30,000 men were in line. President
Mitchell i ode at the head of the pio
ecsslon, and his teccptlon alone- the
loute of the paiade was enthusiastic.
Twelve mineis, diessed in their gieusy
oveialls and blouses, acted as an es
cort. After the paiade, a big picnic
was held at Washington paik, on the
New Jersey side of the Delaware liver,
u few miles below this titv. Thpie
weie probably 40,000 pel sons in attend
ance. Heio Mr. Mitchell made two ud
.dicssies. His pilnblpul speech was 'made
in the ginve, vvheie between lrn and
6,000 listened and cheered the strikers'
Mr, Mitchell's Addres3.
Mr. Mitciull said:
This dav has been docictd as l.iboi 's
speclnl hollduj, ami trom one end of tho
countiy to the othci the hosts of la

eai that has just closed lins been un
precedented In the giowth ot tho tiades
Union movement and the giowth of Inde
pendent thought and Independent action,
but with tho giotvth of the tiades
union movement, new ;ioblems have
itilscn that will tax om gie.itest stiength
to solve. We have this ear government
by injunction and owneishlp by divlno
light In their most accentuated foim. If
one of the most conspicuous of the cap
italists of our countiv piopeily iepie
sents the .entlrmnt and feeling of his as
sociates, then we must take it foi Runted
that they be!lee that God In His infinite
wisdom has given Into theii control all
the lesouicos of our countiy. I was
taught to believe when a boy, that God
loved all Ills people alike. I was taught
to believe that He confened no moie
powei or fiivniH upon one than upon nn
iitht'i ; and notwithstanding the declaia
tion of thu contiolltns of ti lists, am not
piepaicd to abandon the teachings of
my bojhood das.
Eveiy e.u sees some stiuggle of thu
woikeis that stands out moie conspicu
ously than otliei stiuggles. This jimi It
1 appens that the coal mine is of Pcnii
svlvuiilii aio engaged in a life and death
snuggle for tho light to live. Tho stiug
gle of tho ininois of Ppiuislvania Is
not onl the gie.itest contest between
lapltal and laboi In the history of the
noild hocaiise of Its magnitude, but It
tands out in bold lelief ns the gi cutest
tiuggle berauso of the Issues Involved.

unnecPHsary for me to levlew It ninv, but
J do wnnt to take this occasion to say
that tho stiiigglo was not stinted until,

It is moio pleusniit to give than to lit

Workingmen Will Solve the Problem
Ladles and gentlemen, 1 am one who be
lieves that the time Is not tar distant
when the woiklngmiin will have to solvi
the labor piobltm. 1 am free to say that
my own views have been somewhat
changed since this stilke stalled. Near
ly till well Informed woikeis know that
1 hud Identllicd mself with evciy peace
movement that I thought would help thu
woikeis. I am not piep.ncd to say that
they in e falhues, but they me fullutes as
long ns emplovcis will not listen to ica
son and to truth. 1 look foiwaul to tho
time when all wage e.uneis will take
their pioper places In tills movement. 1
look fotwnid to tho time when those who
build the mansions will not have to live
In hovels. I look foiwaid to the time
when the men who build the lightning
expiess and the men who build the beau
tiful Pullman palace cais will not have
to walk from fetation to station looking
for vvoik. 1 look foivvnid to the tlmo
when those whoso laboi builds beautiful
edifices, whoso spiles point heavenwaid,
will not havo to walk past them, too
ragged to enter. I stand for tho solldaiy
of tho tiade union movement. I hope to
see the time when no man who earns his
bread bv thu sweat of his blow will be
outside tho luns of his tiade union I
look forwaid to the time when the woik
eis of our countiy will take possession
of their own countiy.
Hi. Mitchell's second speech was con
fined to an apepal for aid. Among the
otheis speakers at the two meetings
was M. M. Dolphin, of New York, for
ma ly national president of tho Rail

proceeds of the picnic, estimated at
$10,000, will be tuined over to tho
miners' union.

Hast Noi thfleld, Mass. Sept. 1. Presi
dent Roosevelt today concluded his
tour through Vermont at Brattleboro,
ond is spending the night here at
Northfield. The teccptlon accorded
him at Biattleboro was among the
prettiest, well-conducted and most en
thusiastic he has received In his tour
of New England. Upon arriving at the
station he was met by a company of
Infantry, headed by a band, and es
corted to tho common, where he de
livered a brief address, In which he
spoke of Abraham Lincoln as the man
of the hour In the great Civil war. He
feelingly lefened to the veneiable ex
Govemor Holbiook, who was on the
platform, and who accompanied the
president a short distance through the
state, as being one of the few men who
had lecelved the distinction of being a
war governor.
Tho president's progress through
Brattleboro was a continuous ovation.
On tho lino of march, his carriage was
stopped In front of the leading hotel,
and fiom the balcony, men, women and
children showered loose flowers and
bouquets upon him. Arriving at the
common, where he delivered his ad
Uipss, the pavilion steps were strewn
with floweis by little glils, who were
diawn up on both sides.
The president began the day's jour
ney at Burlington, reaching that city
fiom Shelburne, the home of Dr. AV.
Sewai'd Webb. After a drive about" the
city, the president's train started south
ward, stops being made at Vergennes,
Mlddlebury, Brandon, Proctor, Rutland,
Ludlow, Bellow's Falls, Chester and
Brattleboro, and his Vermont trip was
ended. He crossed Into Massachusetts
In the early evening and went to
Northfield, to remain tonight as the
guest of William R. Moody, son of the
noted evangelist, Dvvlght L. Moody, at
the Northfield hotel. The president will
go to Round Top in the morning to
visit Mr. Moody's grave.
The president spoke at every stop .to
day, but most of hi? addresses were
brief. That of greatest Import was the
one delivered at Proctor, the home of
Senator Pioctor, wheieln he defined his
idea of the Monroe doctrine.
At' Moody's School.
East Northfield, Mass., Sept. 1. Presi

In the audience room of the Northfield
school chapel, he was greeted with pro
longed cheeis by the students. Mr.
Moody Intioduced him by simply say
ing; "I have the honor to Introduce to you
President Roosevelt, who will now ud
dress you."
In the course of his temaiks, he said;
"I think they teach heie the essen
tials of good citizenship, that Is, that a
man is no good who does not know how
to vvoik with his hands as well as with
his head."
At S o'clock this evening the president
spoke In the lnige Northfield Auditor
ium, which was completely filled.
At the close of his address, the presi

New A'oik, Bcpt, 1. Senator Piatt has

the Rcpirbllcun stato convention will wi-
doiso tho Roosevelt udiulnlstiatlon It will
not declare for tho leuomlnatlon of tho

of authority on this point vcstciday, and
ndded that the convention might nut be
pieparcd to ti vj fur us Roosevelt had
gono on the question of truts. Tho

Issue could bo uilsed on the high pilcc-3

"Tho pjatform which will bo adopted
by tin- state convention next month will
contain a very waim Indorsement of the
administration of Piesldent Roosevelt,"
said the senator, "but It will not declare
for his lenomlnntton In 1904, The plat
form will contain a plank on tho subject
of trusts, but at this time It Is Impossible
to say how this will be worded. No ono
knows how the platform will go lu this
subject, but the matter Is iccclvlup thu

Admiral Higglnson Cuts Out Import
ant Work for the Jnckies tinder
His Command.
By Exclusive Wire from The Associated Tress.
Newpoit, R. I., Sept. 1. Admiral Hig
glnson did not delay after tho declar
ation of hostilities today, to cut out
woik for tho lackles and marines of
his fleet, accomplishing In daylight, but
under cover of fog, two things that
General MacArthur's army had not an
ticipated. These were the seizure of Martha's
Vineyard and Block Island and tho
captuio of the army's signal station at
each place. Tonight he followed up his
good work by a demonstration In force
against the extreme western end of tho
Hue of defending fortifications, but it
cannot be determined until later If he
actually attempted to force his vvav
into Long Island sound or simply aimed
to give his cievvs a little big gun prac
tice. The navy's night attack was not ex
pected at the western end of the line
nulte so early In the game. The theory
was held all day, after It was known
that Higglnson had secured a base on
the outlying Islands, that he would send
his cruisers for a reconnalsance against
both ends of the line und then swing
his fleet Into the centre or around New
port for a sharp, yet heavy attack
there, manoeuvring quickly, and then,
when things became most Interesting,
sail to the westwaid and make his
grand effort to foice his way Into Long
Island sound. This would have been
his night attack, for It seems almost
certain that the day attack will be
against Fort Rodman, the eastern
Once tonight Newpoit got a scale,
when a message came from Port Jud
ith that marines weie being landed
theie in the fog. All communication
with that point was cut off. Then at
10 30 came an official bulletin announc
ing the bombardment of Forts Mlchl
and AVright, but when Port Judith sig
nal station was again In touch with
the central Intelligence bureau, It was
explained that the signal men theie
weie given a drill In saving equipment,
on supposition that the enemy was
making a landing. They cut out the
telegraph and telephone wiles, picked
up their equipment and made a recoid
breaklng retreat, then returning le-es-tabllshed
the station, doing a ci edit
able piece of work. Outside of this In
cident the routine of war duty along
Narragnnsett bay was simply a good
measuie of haid work nil day, and
some veiy lively seaichlight woik to
