Who published this newspaper and why?

 

A heavy rainstorm this afternoon did not prevent Col. Roosevelt from disposing of an extraordinarily strenuous program. This included a luncheon at the royal palace as the guest of Archduke Joseph, a reception at the parliament house, and a sightseeing tour, which comprised visits to the Agricultural Museum, built in imitation of the celebrated Gothic castle of Vajda Hunyad, where Mr. Roosevelt was especially interested in the conservation and reforestation work of Hungary.

 

Col. Roosevelt’s remarkable vitality is a surprise to all with whom he comes in contact. The newspaper men who are assigned to report his doings find it almost impossible to keep up with his movements. Many of them tonight gave vent to expressions of amazement at the chase which the distinguished visitor had led them. He did not seem in the least fatigued.

 

A portion of the day was taken up with a call on Francis Kossuth, leader of the united opposition, who is ill; a visit to the Washington Monument, erected by the Hungarian-American Federation; an inspection of the studio of Zaia, the Hungarian sculptor; a reception of the members of the American colony at the consulate, and a reception for the Hungarian journalists at the hotel. Mr. Roosevelt and Kermit were the guests of the Austrian ambassador, Baron Hengelmuller von Hengervar, and the baroness at a dinner at the Park Club, where they host the leading representatives of the Hungarian nobility.

 

Talks with Kossuth

 

Perhaps the most interesting feature of the day was Col. Roosevelt’s half-hour talk with Francis Kossuth. Although Kossuth’s name is still synonymous throughout Hungary with the independent aspirations of the people of Hungary, he is now living quietly, owing to the recent fall of the independent coalition ministry, of which he and Count Apponyi were the leaders. The Austrian government manifested not the slightest disapproval of the visit; on the contrary, Ambassador Hengelmuller accompanied Mr. Roosevelt and was present at the interview...

 

The rain did not dampen the ardor of the Hungarians. Wherever the former President went there were crowds to cheer him. The interparliamentary group, through Count Apponyi, hailed him as the champion of public honesty throughout the world and the greatest living statesman.
