Admiral SampBon'8 Condition.
Washington, Oct. 28.—One of our re-

Admiral Sampson at his home in New

and arose and greeted his visitor in a
sprightly and cordial way. But when

himself utterly unable to finish it. His
mind is clear, and he knew perfectly
well what he wanted to say, but could
not command the words. After five
minutes of this painful endeavor to
converse with his old comrade in arms,
the caller excused himself and left the
house with tears in his eyes.

estate is worth about 85,000,000 and
some place it even higher.

New Haven, I t.. Oct. 20.—The pre-

degrees followed the commemorative
address at Harvard and the function
occupied about an hour. f.
The foreigners who were honored
with degrees were received with great
enthusiasm. When the long list had
been finished President lladley ad-
vanced a step or two and with great
impressiveness said:
"There yet remains one name." In
an instant the great audience was
standing. The president of the United
States also arose and the theater rang
with cheers. The air was filled with
waving handkerchiefs and programs
Remarking that Vale had chosen for
the degree this candidate before he
became president, President Hadley
announced that all Yale men were now
doubly honored by greeting the man
and the president as a son of Yale.'1
Specially addressing President Roose-
velt, President Hadley spoke as follows
" 1 lieodore Roosevelt, while you were
yet a private citizen we offered you
j most worthily the degree of L. I.. I).
"Since in Ilis providence it has
j pleased God to give Theodore Roosevelt
| another title, we give him on that
! account a double portion of welcome.
| "He is a Harvard man by nature, bu:
we arc proud to think that in his dem-
ocratic spirit, his broad national sym-
pathies, and above all, his clearances
and purity and truth, he will be glad
to be an adopted son of Yale." •
President Roosevelt advanced, bowed
profoundly and tried to speak. Again
the audience cheered and it was fully a
minute before lie was allowed to pro-
ceed. He said:
"President Hadley: 1 have never vet
worked at a task worth doing that I
did not find myself working shoulder
to shoulder with some son of Yale. I
have never yet been in a struggle for
righteousness and decency that there
were not men of Yale to aid me and
give me sti -ngth and courage.
As we walked hither this morning
we passed by a gateway which was
raised to the memory of a young Yak-
lad who was hurt to death beside me
as he and a great many others like us
marched against the gunfire of the
heights ami with those memories quick
in my mind, I thank you from II.-,-
heart for the honor you have done me
and 1 thank you doubly for you
planned to do me that honor while 1
was yet a private citizen."
The hymn "America" was then sung
and the audience dispersed.

Washington, Oct. 23.— In spite of tin

President Roosevelt's entertainment at
dinner of Booker T. Washington, the
President has received many messages
of congratulations from white leaders
of Southern thought. None of these
messages will be given out at tfie

the President does not regard the in-
cident as of sufficient importance to be
noticed publicly or commented upon.
