The Ceremonies and Inaugural
Washington, March 4. Special to
The Chronicle. Grover Cleveland, of
New York, thrice nominated for presi
dent of tbo United States and twice
elected, was today successfully inducted
into that high office for bis second term
with all the appropriate ceremonies and
gathering of mighty multitudes. The
last occasion was greater titan the first.
The military and civic display was more
imposing. In 1685 there were not more
than 20,000 in line outside of the inau
gural parade. Today at least 40,000
marched along the great National
avenue. Today also the governors of
eleven states, New Hampshire, New Jer
sey and Massachusetts in the east;
Pennsylvania and Maryland among the
middle states ; Georgia, North and South
Carolina and Louisiana in the south,
and Wisconsin in the west, participated
in the ceremonies, thereby emphasizing
complete national unity. The order of
proceedings is almost identically the
same as four years ago, with the action
of the chief participants reversed, and
differed very little except in the extent
of the demonstration from the ceremo
nies of eight years ago.
There was a round of applause as the
carriage bearing Harrison and Cleveland
came in eight, on Pennsylvania avenue,
preceded by Grand Marshal McMahon
and staff. Vice President Stevenson
was received with almost as much en
thusiasm as the chief. Arriving at the
capitol the inaugural proceedings began.
It was 12 :50 p. m. when Vice Presi
dent Stevenson appeared in the senate
chamber and took seat beside Mr.
Morton. Then followed President Har
rison, and the cabinet. Mr. Morton
administered the oath to his successor
and yielded the chair to him as presiding
officer and the special session of the 53rd
congress opened. ' The new senators
took their oath of office. The procession
then formed and proceeded to the east
portico of the capitol. They arrived
there and were seated according to cus
tom. Chief Justice Fuller administered
the oath of oflice to Cleveland, who then
delivered the inaugural address.
In his inaugural address Mr. Cleve
land said: "There is nothing more
vital to our supremacy as a nation than
a sound and stable currency. Nothing
will be left undone as far as the execu
tive branch of the government can in
tervene, to maintain our national credit,
or avert financial disaster." Other im
portant subjects touched on were the
dangers of paternalism, pensions, In
dians, trusts, civil service reform and

guished services of the several members
of the cabinet, that part of it relating to
the personal worth and integrity of the de

the future policy of Mr. Cleveland, but
professing for him the warmest personal
friendship. The address closed with
good wishes for the individual members

America would still continue to be
blessed as a nation.
Cleveland's Reference to Finance.
Washington, March 5. Cleveland
believes he can remedy the financial
difficulties now existing under the gen
eral welfare clause of the constitution.
His allusion in his inaugural to the ques
tion is taken to mean that he will not
allow anything to stand in his way of
preventing financial difficulties. Just
what the scheme is cannot be stated,
but those who claim to know say that
the president will act without the as
sistance of congress, if necessary, to pre
serve the credit of the country and the
business and commercial relations of the

Washington, March 3. In accordance
with the new quarantine laws, Secretary
of tho Treasury Foster will tomorrow
issue a circular of instructions giving
the sanitary regulations to be enforced
at the port of departure, and to be ob
served on the vessel during the voyage,
and also embracing the rules governing
the national quarantine stations in the
United States. They were prepared by
a board of medical officers selected by
Surgeon-General Wyman. Every vessel,
passenger or freight, bound for the
United States, must carry a prescribed
bill of health, given either by the United
States consul, or a medical officer de
tailed by the president at the port of
1 departure. In case the vessel sails from
an infected port, an inspection must
precede the granting of the bill of health,
and an inspection Is required in the
case of every passenger vessel sailing
from any port in Europe, Asia, Africa,
Central or South America, Mexico or
the West Indies, whether the port is
infected or not. Each cabin passenger
must produce evidence as to his place of
abodo for four days previous to embark
ation, and if he has been exposed to
contagion will be detained for a term to
be fixed by the inspector, and his bag
gage disinfected. Steerage passengers
shipping from an infected port are to be
detained five days under' medical ob
servation in specially provided quarters.
Thev are to be bathed at the beginning
of the five-day term and provided with
disinfected clothing. If cholera should
break out among them while under ob
servation, none of them will be allowed
to embark for the United States until at
least seven days have elapsed since the
conclusion of the last case. The vessel
arriving at any United. States port with
cases of contagion aboard shall be de

The snow which began the latter part
of January continued during the fore
part of February. It was heaviest in the
northern portion of the Willamette,
Oregon, and from Fairhaven, Washing
ton, southward. The total amount of
snow varied from 12 to 40 Inches.
The temperature over Washington
and Oregon during the month was from
one to four degrees below the February
normal. The coldest period of the month,
was the first five days, which ranged
from 8 to 18 degrees below zero east, and
from 5 to 10 degrees above sero west of
The precipitation for the month baa
been about the normal. At Portland it
was 1.45 inches below the normal, whilo
at Roseburg it was 2.28 inches abovo
the normal. There was an excess in
Western and Northern Washington, and
a slight deficiency about Walla Walla
and Baker City.
The total amount of snowfall, un
melted, that fell during the month was
20 inches at Portland, 2 inches at Ash
land, 21 inches at Spokane and 8 inches
at Walla Walla. At the close of the
month there was no snow on the ground
west of the Cascades nor in the Colum

two inches on the ground and at Baker
City one inch.
The weather has been favorable to
crops, and the ground is thoroughly
soaked. The low mean temperature
has retarded the development of fruit
buds; it has checked their growth, which
tends to protect the buds from late frosts.
There has been no special loss of stock
reported. The feed has been fairly
plentiful and as a rule stock wintered
