"NOT A TRIUMPH,
Washington, March 4. Wood row
Wilson became president of the Unit
ed States today amid imposing cere
monies and tumultuous scenes of pop
ular greeting. Standing at the his
toric east front of the capitol he took
the constitutional oath of office, and in
his brief inaugural address made a
fervid appeal to all patriotic men for
counsel and aid.
"This is not a day of triumph," he
said; "it is a day of dedication.
Here muster not the forces of party,
but the forces of humanity. Men's
hearts wait upon us; men's lives hang
in the balance; men's hopes call upon
us to say what we will do. Who shall
live up to the great trust? Who dares
fail to try? I summon all honest men,
all patriotic, all forward-looking men
to my side. God helping me, I will
not fail them if they" will but counsel
and sustain me."

Immediately in front of the presi-
1 dential platform Major-General Wood
and his general staff held a space
clear. Across the open space loomed
a battery of nearly 100 cameras and
motion picture machines, trained on
the single spot where President Taft
was to pass his mantle of office to
President-elect Wilson. Back of the
West Point cadets stood the Essex
troop, President Wilson' guard of
honor, and near them the Black Horse
troop of Culver.
The troops were prepared to give
way when the delivery of the inaug
ural address began so that the crowd
I might dose in to hear the new presi
dent. There was a lull in the cere
monies as the company assembled.
A mild wind blew over the stands,
and the West Point cadets and sailors
ran about in little groups to relieve
the tedium, while the presidential
party slowly assembled. The east !

was no immediate sign of rain.

Mexico City Major Cardenas, who

the day they were killed, was promo

inclination to recognize General Huer

At 1:29 the last restraint on the
crowd was removed, and across the
empty space of asphalt came a cheer

hats, flags and coats upward in the di

as wo look frankly U.n them, willing
to comprehend their real character,
have come to assume the aspect of
things long Mievcd in ami familiar,
stuff of our own convictions. We
have been refreshed by a new insight
into our own life.
We see that in msny things that
life is very great. It is incomparably
great in its material aseets, in its
body of wealth, in the diversity and
sweep of its energy, in the Industrie,
which have been conceived and built
up by the genius of individual men
and the limitless enterprise of groU
of men. It is great also, very great,
in its moral force. Nowhere else in
the world have noble men and women
exhibited in more striking form, the
beauty ami the energy of sympathy
ami helpfulness and counsel in their
efforts to rectify wrong, alleviate suf
fering, ami set the weak in the way
of strength and hoe. VNe have built
up, moreover, a great system of gov
ernment, which hus stissl through a
long age a in many re. pert, a model

foundations that will endure .gainst

But the evil has come with the
good, and much line gold has been cor

cusable waste. We have squandered
a great part of what wi might have
used, ami have not tiped to conserve
the exceeding Isiunty of nature, with
out which our genius for enterprise
would have been worthless and inis
tent, scorning to be careful, shameful
ly prodigal as well as admirably effi
cient We have been proud of our
industrial achievements, but we have
not hitherto stopped thoughtfully
enough to count the human cost, the
cost of lives snuffed out, of energies
overtaxed and broken, the fearful
physical and spiritual cost to the men
and women and children upon whom
the dead weight and burden of it all
has fallen pitilessly the year, through.
The groans ami agony of it .11 had not
yet reached our ears, the solemn, mov
ing undertone of our life, coming up
out of the mines and factories and out
of every home where the struggle had
its intimate and familiar seat. With
the great government went many deep
secret things which we bsi long de
layed to look into and scrutinize with
candid, fearless eyes. The great
government we loved ha. too often
been made use of for private and .elf
ish purs.ses, and those who used it
had forgotten the s-ople.
At last a vision has been vouchsafed
us of our life as a whole. We see
the bad with the good, the debased ami
decadent with the sound and vital.
With this vision we approach new
affairs. Our duly is to cleanse. t
