Inauguration of President
IN A DOWNPOUR OF RAIN
Crowd of Forty Thousand Persons
"Witnessed the Ceremonies Oath
Administered on East Front of
Capitol by the Chief Justice.
WASHINGTON. March 4. William Mc
Kinley a second time Is President of the
United States. He was ushered Into that
office today in a city ablaze with more
and finer decorations than ever have
graced the holiday-loving National capital,
whose streets today resounded to the
tread of more marching soldiers and sail
ors than ever have participated In a like
function, and had as witnesses to the cer
emonies a vast multitude, who cheered
frequently whenever he or his Vice-Presidential
colleague was visible.
There has been better weather on inaug.
uratlon days, and there nas been much
worse than that which attended today's
ceremonies. The day In the early fore
noon gave promise of being a golden
Spring day. such as Professor Moore, the
chief of the Weather Bureau, last night
very confidently and with much emphasis
predicted, but the weather was In a ca
pricious mood, and by ndon a slow drizzle
had begun, which lasted v. lth some Inter
missions and an occasional lively down
pour until late In the afternoon. The
worst of the wet weather, unfortunately,
came just at the time that President Mc
Kinley was being Inducted into office on
the east front of the Capitol, in the pres.
ence of a crowd csimated to number 40,000.
But the air was mild and pleasant, and
the day ended with dry weather, so that,
as stated, there have been many worse in
auguration days than this. Garfield was
inaugurated in a storm; Harrison in a
cold rain, that deluged the city from
dawn until dark, and Cleveland took the
oath at his 'second lnaguural before 10,000
cheering people In a fierce gale, with the
snow beating down upon his bare head.
Today's downpour at the most interest
ing point of the proceedings again brought
forward the agitation In favor of April 30
as the date for future Inaugurations. It
was on April 30 that George Washington
took the first oath to the highest office
known to man, and today's experience was
a commentary on the uncertainty of
The day could not have promised better
than it did In the early forenoon. The
air was soft and balmy, and a light
southern breeze was blowing. But It was

miles of bunting, and with thousands of

mass of people so early that no one pre
tended to haVe arisen In time to say when
they began swarming to their places. They
surged up and down both sides of the
beautiful avenue, overflowed the terraced
stands and balconies, walled in the win
dows and fringed the roofs, while blaring
bands, clear-drawn bugle- calls and gallop
ing aids, told of the military legions
marching deep into the tangle of streets
to take their places in the grand proces
sion. The Influence of the great multi
tude that ever Invaded the city overshad
owed all the pageantry and most Im
pressed the mind.
The City Decorated.
Washington had decked herself as never
before for the second inauguration of Mc
Kinley and the induction Into the Vice
Presidency of Theodore Roosevelt. She
has been many times a bride. Today she
was truly regal for her twlce-accopted
lord. She was dressed like a Queen. The
committee in charge had insisted upon
uniform and harmonious decorations. The
scheme was superb and it was admirably
executed. The gem of It all was the
court of honor, where the President re-
viewed the parade. It extended from the
Treasury building, with Its severe classic
facades and columns, to the State, War
and Navy building, with its imposing
Italian renaissance architecture, compris
ing the stretch in front of the Executive
mansion. Guarding the entrance were
gigantic white pillars, surmounted by
bronze urns for the Greek fire at night.
Doric columns, like measured sentinels,
stood before the whlte-roofcd stands In
which the distinguished personages were
seated, while other columns ran in a semi
circle through the White House grounds.
It was as beautiful as the setting in a
Only a comparatively insignificant por
tion of the vast multitude saw anything
of the actual Inauguration ceremonies at
the Capitol. The great unnumbered thou
sands were content to wait In the avenue
below to see the two men on whom the
attention of the world was fixed today,
and the great procession which followed
Rooievelt Sworn In.
The brilliant and Impressive scene In
the Senate,' when the Vice-President-elect
was Inducted into office, was reserved for
a few hundred. The public had no part
In It. While the distinguished audience
was gathering in the Senate chamber, the
President, in a little side room, was sign
ing the bills which the djlng Congress
was sending to him. The galleries were
already filled. The Ambassadors' corps,
as the personal representatives of their
European sovereigns, marched In glitter
ing with gold and aflame with ribbons.
The Admiral of the Navy and the General
of the Army, stiff in gold braid, had been
given their places. Tne Judges of the
Supreme Court. In their state gowns, the
members of the House, the Governors of
the states were all there when the bril
liant assemblage felt an electric thrill as
the Vice-President-elect was announced.
The greatest curiosity existed to see this
man, who has been so much in the public
eye during recent years, and Instantly all
eyes were turned toward mm. He halted
a moment beneath the clock at the en
trance, drew himself up until he seemed a
foot taller, and marched down the aisle
erect and with the bearing of a soldier.
He acknowledged the round of applause
that greeted him, and smiled up at the
gallery where his wife and children sat.
The President, who was the last to enter,
got an even more enthusiastic reception.
He never looked better and never seemed
more graceful and at ease.
When the ceremony In the Senate, a lit
tle tedious, despite its brilliancy, was over
the floor and galleries emptied into the
corridors through which the people jostled
and squeezed Into the rotunda, and out on
to the platform erected from the east
portico of the Capitol building. Upon It
were to be seated the Senators, Repre
sentatives, diplomatic corps, Supreme
Court and some of the Invited guests.
Flanking It on either side were other
stands black with people, while the steps
to the House and Senate were precipitous
hillocks of humanity. Overhead, on the
ledges of the facade, and even on the
gallery surrounding the dome, were others
still, as if a great tidal wave of humanity
had been dashed against the front of tho
Capitol and receding had left many people
clinging to the dizzy projections. Below
the multitudes filled the plaza and beyond,
down the diverging avenues, patches of
color and myriads of points of steel Indi-

list of eminent patriots and statesmen,
was administered by Senator William P.
Frye. of Maine, President pro tempore of
the United States Senate. The ceremony
was thoroughly democratic, yet In Its sim
plicity profoundly impressive.
The Senate was in session consecutively,
having been 'so since 11 o'clock Saturday
morning, although recesses taken at Inter
vals had rendered the mental and phys
ical strain the more endurable. Early In
the morning the galleries had'been cleared
by an executive session,. and they were
no,!, opened again until 10 o'clock, and then
only to those who held cards of admis
sion to the Capitol, and to places reserved
for them In the galleries.
Rapidly the galleries began to fill, and
long before the hour for the ceremony to
begin they were thronged to the doors.
Among the first persona of note to enter
the galleries were ladles and attaches of
the diplomatic corps, not entitled to the
floor of the Senate. Lady Pauncefote,
wife of the British Ambassador, was
among the early arrivals, as also was
Mme. Wu, wife of the Chinese Minister.
Seated In the front row and attired In a
gown of gorgeous Oriental silks, made In
the fashion of her native land, and wear
ing a blue silk band, studded with dia
monds about her jet black hair, she was
the cynosure of hundreds of eyes. Another
attractive figure In the diplomatic gallery
was Mme. Takahlra, wife of the Japanese
Minister. Her gown was a revelation of
the draper's art.
At 10:30 o'clock the Vice-President-elect
arrived at the Capitol, accompanied by
Senator Spooner and Representative Dal
zell. He went directly to the Vice-President's
room. Shortly before 11:30 o'clock
Mrs. McKinley, escorted by Major-General
Corbln. entered the executive gallery. She
was accompanied by the members of her
house party. She was assisted down the
aisle of the gallery to a front seat, which
had been reserved for her. She chatted
spiritedly with her friends, and at times
smiled recognition to som friend on the
floor of the Senate or in the galleries.
Four years ago the venerable mother of
the President, then over 80 years old, was
of the Presidential party In the executive
gallery, but today she was no more. Al
most simultaneously with the Presidential
party, Mrs. Roosevelt and her friends,
principally relatives, entered. Accom
panied by her children- she was escorted
to front seats In the gallery. Just opposite
those occupied by Mrs. McKinley. The
exchange of greetings between Mrs. Mc
Kinley and Mrs. Roosevelt was noted by
all. The children of Mr. and Mrs. Roose
velt, who, with eager eyes, drank In every
detail of the historic occasion, gazed with
wide-eyed wonder upon the scene, not
missing a single incident or detail.
Upon the floor of the Senate the pro
ceedings were In accordance with a defin
ite programme, from which there was no
deviation. The members of the Senate,
the host of the occasion, were seated in
front and to the left of the President pro
tem. Supporting the Senate were Repre
sentatives of the Executive, Legislative
and Judicial Departments of the Govern
ment, including members of the Cabinet
and House of Representatives and the
Supreme Court Justices and Associate
Justices. On the opposite the Democratic
side of the chamber, the guests were
As the distinguished bodies entered the
chamber they were announced to tho
President "pro tem. of the Senate by Mr.
Stuart and Mr. Layton, the doorkeepers
of the Senate. While the Senator from
Montana (Mr. Carter) was pronouncing
the last words of the rites over the river
and harbor bill, "the Speaker and mem
bers of the House of Representatives"
were announced. They were seated In
the rear of the Senate. Speaker Hen

and just below that of the President pro
At 11:45 the entrance of the diplomatic
corps was announced. Headed by the
dean of the corps. Lord Pauncefote, the
Ambassador of Great Britain, the Ambas
sadors and Ministers from foreign coun

minutes later the nine Supreme Court
Justices, In their flowing robes, were
Interest by this time was intense. All
were waiting the appearance of Governor
Roosevelt and President McKinley. After
tho-golden hand of the great blue-faced
clock Immediately beneath the diplomatic
gallery had parsed the stroke of noon,
the immense doors swung open and "the
Vice-President-elect of the United States"
was announced. Governor Roosevelt was
escorted to his seat on the platform im
mediately to the right of Senator Frye,
the President pro tem., by Spooner of
Wisconsin and Dalzell of Pennsj lvanla,
of the Congressional inauguration com
mittee. Governor Roosevelt, frock

Meantime the members of the Presi
dent's Cabinet had entered and had been
seated upon the left of the Ambassadors.
The somber garb and silk hats of the
members of the President's official family
were in striking contrast with the gor
geous uniforms of members of the diplo
matic corps. Following the members of

' tingulshed assemblage upon the floor. As
; he seated himself, the President bowed
and smiled to Mrs. McKinley and she re
turned the salutation with a pretty wave
of her gloved hand. On each side of the
President sat the members of the Con
gressional Inaugural committee. As the
assemblage again was seated, the new
Vice-President ascended to his desk to
deliver his inaugural address. Before the
delivery of the speech the venerable chap
lain of the Senate, Rev. Dr. William II.
Mllburn. Invoked the Divine blessing upon
the assemblage, and the ceremonies. At
the conclusion of the prayer, the Vice
President began the delivery of his ad
dress. The inaugural was brief, and was
listened to with the utmost attention. In
full the address was as follows:
"The history of free government Is In
large part the history of those represen
tative legislative bodies In which, from
the earliest times, free government has

fearlessness and honesty, with sanity and
disinterestedness, does his life work as a
member with such a body. Especially Is
this the case when the Legislature In which
the service is rendered is a vital part in

TALKED STTO DEATH
Carter Killed the River and
BLOCKED SENATE BUSINESS
Montana Senator Spoke for Thirteen
Hours Against Appropriations
Roosevelt "Was Sworn In and
Called New Senate to Order.
WASHINGTON, March 4. One of tho
most notable occurrences In the history
of Congressional legislation marked tho
closing hours of the last session of the
56th Congress. Carter signalized his re
tirement from the Senate after six years
of brilliant service by talking the rlvr
and harbor bill to death. He occupied tho
floor for nearly 13 consecutive hours, al
thougn In the aggregate about three hours
of that time were devoted to other busi
ness. At 11:40 o'clcck last night, after the Sen
ate conferees on the river and harbor bill
had reported a disagreement. Carter be
gan his speech. Apparently In a facetious
vein he began his attack upon the meas
ure, denouncing it as vicious and perni
cious legislation, unwarranted by condi
tions and unsound in principle. Shortly
before 5 o'clock Allison submitted a fur
ther disagreement on the sundry civil bill,
the Item In contention being the appro
priation for the three expositions. From
this the Senate receded, and then passed
the St. Louis exposition bill. Tillman,
who had championed tho appropriation
for Charleston throughout the session,
made a final appeal to the Senate to savo
the Charleston Item, but he realized that
the Missouri Senators were more power
ful than he. By a vote of 33 to 10 tho
Senate receded from tho Charleston ap
propriation and the bill was passed. Car
ter resumed his speech, finally announcing
at 6:35 o'clock that It was his intention
not to permit the river and harbor bill to
become a law If his strength should hold
out, and saying that at that moment ho
was In excellent physical condition. With
the exception of a brief intermission,
while a quorum was being secured, and
recess of half an hour, between 10:30 and
11 o'clock today. Carter spoke practically
continuously. He yielded the floor only
after the ceremony of tho Induction of
Vice-President Roosevelt Into office had
In retiring as tho president pro tem. of
the Senate, Frye, In response to a resolu
tion of thanks for his courtesy and Im
partiality, delivered a brief but feeling ad
dress to tho Senate. At the conclusion
of tho session of the 56th Congress. Vice
President Roosevelt was sworn In and Im
mediately called the Senate of the 57th
Congress to order. It was a simple but
beautiful and Impressive ceremony. Tho
new Senators were sworn In In groups of
four. At the conclusion of this proceed
ing, the Senate attended the inauguration
of tho President on the east front of tho
Capitol. At 1:15 o'clock the Senate re
turned to Its chamber, and adjourned Im
mediately until tomorrow.
From 10:30 o'clock last night the Sen
ate remained in continuous session
to clear up tho necessary legisla
tion which had to reach the Pres
ident for his signature before ad
journment. The most Interesting feature
of the session was the action upon tho
sundry civil appropriation bill when early
this morning the Senate receded from Its
amendment providing for three exposi
tions giving 55.000,000 to St. Loul3. $500,000
to Buffalo and $250,000 to Charleston, S. C. '
Without d.vision the motion of Allison
to recede was agreed to. It was tho
last remaining item of the bill In disagree
ment and all danger of an extra session
The Senate then receded from tho
Charleston amendment to the St. Loul3
Exposition bill which had passed the
House as a separate measure. Vest
made the motion. Though suffering from 111
health he had remained in the Senate all
night to battle for this exposition appro
priation. He made an appeal to the Sen
ate to pass the bill now, saying that
with the utmost kindness toward Charles
ton It was not fair to make St, Louis suf
fer because the House would not make an
appropriation for the exposition in South
Tillman, who had made a hard
light for Charleston, made a speech
showing deep feeling. Congress he said,
had appropriaated $11,000,000 for exposi
tions and now it was proposed to give
$3 000,000 more. His state. South Carolina,
was regarded as an outcast, a disinherited
Lodge thought that Charleston ought to
be treated equally with St. Louis, and he
with Depew was among the ten Senators
who voted against the motion of Vest.
Thirty-eight Senators voted for the mo
tion and the appropriation of $5,000,000 for
St- Louis was passed.
During the night Pettigrew created
something of a sensation by asserting that
the bill passed yesterday for the better
protection of railway employes had been
lost or stolen after It was enrolled and
signed by the Speaker. Pettigrew said that
If It was lost. It "was lost on purpose."
It was subsequently learned that the bill
had been found In a drawer of a desk In
the enrolling room and It was brought to
The persistence of Butler was
rewarded during the morning by the pas
sage of a bill appropriating $6000 for
damages done during the Civil War to
St. John's Masonic Lodge, at New-Berne,
N. C. He has been fighting for this bill
during the entire session.
Frye, president pro tem., said he had re
ceived a telegram from the Lieutenant
Governor of Montana, which he directed
the clerk to read. The Lieutenant-Governor
stated that as the presiding officer
of the joint legislative convention of Mon
tana, he wanted emphatically to say that
the election of W. A. Clark as Senator
from Montana was the culmination of the
expressed wish of the people of that state,
and that protests against Mr. Clark should
not te heeded by th- United States Sen
ate. Mr. Clark had been an Issue In the
campaign, and his success before the peo
ple and In the Legislature was a vindica
tion of his character.
Jones (Ark.) read a telegram for John
S. M. Neill, saying that H. R. Knapp, who
filed a protest against Senator Clark, was
not a resident of Montana.
Pending the final agreement on the sun
dry civil bill, Pettigrew read from the
Congressional Record the remarks of Hull,
made 'n the House a few days ago, when
the Iowa gentleman acknowledged he was
connected with the Philippine Develop
ment Company. Pettigrew severely criti
cised Hull and denounced generally the
condition of the Philippines. He charged
the minority in the Senate with being In
fluenced by pending legislation, which they
feated mlgnt be defeated. He said the
sundry civil bill ought to fall, and the
river and harbor bill as well. He de
nounced the latter measure as a "job "
