the sheet of falling water and a person
can walk to the brink of the falls with
out realizing his danger, warned only
by the noise of the falling waters.

Bristol, Tenn., April 30 The first
day of the president's long tour to the
Pacific coa-st lay through an historic
lection In Virginia, across the valleys
of the Rapldan and James, In sight of
the homes of Madison and Jefferson,
up past the peaks of Otter, so dear to
'he hearts of the Virginian. Into the
III lie Ilidge mountains.
The Tennessee line was reached at
if 58 las; night with the arrival of the
train at Bristol. The route, as far as
Lynchburg, was over the Southern rail -
way. There the train was shifted to
the tracks of the Norfolk and West-
em for a short cut to Bristol, where
it resumed Its fill

I tie presidential party received a
flattering ovation from the time the
train left Washington. Large crowds
assembled at every station, the COUn
: tryslde and cross roads each had its
; little groups of waving watchers strain- i
, ing their eyes to catch a glimpse of the
chief magistrate as the train whisked
by. At Charlottesville the students of i
the University of Virginia turned out,
it Lynchburg Senator Daniel, Vlr
ginla's crack orator, made a speed
greeting the president, and at Roanoki
two bands era hed out their welcome.
Al each of these places the president
-)' tided to the loud calls made upon
him and spoke briefly from the rear
platform of his car, At Charlottesville
Postmaster General Smith took part
in the speechmaking, and at Roanoke I
Secretary Hay delivered a nrief ad
dress. In his Roanoke speech President
"I am very glad not only to meet the
people of the city of Lynchburg, but to
presented by your distinguished
e i itor. it is a matter of no public
interest, but only one of pure personal
recollection, that the first time I ever i
. rieil to (.'uine to l.ynclilmrg I did not I
succeed. 1 came here with a number of
other gentlemen who sought entrance,
but the S'Hes were closed. We could 1
not open them, and you would not.
And so we departed to seek another:
host, if not more hospitable, less for
midable than the one that greeted us
here. It is a happy time for me to
come to Lynchburg now the war over,
no exchange of greetings with shot and 1
shell, as then, but with the friendly
welcome of all the people which typi
fles the respect and regard and good
will which exists between all sections
of our common country."
If yesterday's reception through Vlr-1
ginia is any indication of what is to
occur throughout the rest of the trip
the president's tour across the conti
nent will be a triumphal one. Some of
the people In their eagerness to grarti
the president's hand clambered up the
railing surrounding the platform. The
president received these demonstra-!
Hons good naturedly and never failed
smilingly to grasp the hand extended
to him. Mrs. McKinley, .sitting at the
window in the observation car, smii
Ing and waving her handkerchief In
response to the greetings of the multl
