President Roosevelt Installed
Amid Plaudits,
- 12
Every Person Who Wears .a . ,
Is Always Satisfied
He Swears Fealty to the Constitution
Amid Scene of Brilliant Splendor
and Is Hailed With the
"' People's Love.
(Continued from First Pas.)
Of distinguished guests. By this time
all tvere standing:, and nothing could
be heard above the roar of thunderous
Velcome. Immediately following came,
arm in arm, the members of the com
mittee on arrangements. As the Pres
ident passed down the aisle he bared
his head, and with characteristic sweep
of his hat bowed in acknowledgment
of the salutations from the stand and
the ovation from the people. His man
ner was not that of a man Incurring
onerous responsibilities, three years in
the White House having familiarized
him with the duties of the high office
to which he was to be inaugurated.
While he waited for the applause to die
out he stood in triumph, with no show
of vanity, with no evidences of polit
ical enmity, apparently no memories of
the campaign gone by, and nothing
more disconcerting than n huge gath
ering of loyal Americans.
Swears to Support Laws.
At a sign from Chief Justice Puller
the clerk of the Supreme Court stepped
forward, holding a Bible. A hush fell
over the crowd. The President raised
his right hand, and the oath to support
the laws and Constitution of the Unit
ed States was reverently taken amid
deep silence. When this nad been con
cluded there was practically no dem
onstration, and the President began bis
Inaugural address. As soon as he
finished speaking ho re-entered the
Capitol, and as he disappeared within
the building a signal was flashed to
the Navy-yard, and the roar of 21 guns
was begun in official salute to the
Secretary Hay's Gift.
On the third finger of President
Roosevelt's left hand during the in
augural ceremonies was a heavily em
bofssed gold seal ring. The ring was
a present this morning from Secretary
of State. John Hay. Instead of a seal,
on the oval flat surface of the ring is
a receptacle with a glass face. Under
the glass is the lock of hair cut from
the head of Abraham Lincoln just after
his assassination and before his death.
"While in his room and waiting for the
ceremonies in the Senate chamber to
begin. President Roosevelt called at
tention to tbo ring. Secretary Hay, he
said, had given it to him with the ex
pressed wish that it should be worn
during his inauguration.
"I am very happy to wear it," added
the President, "and shall always value
it very highly."
The ring is very like in pattern to
the' one which Mr. Roosevelt wears on
the little finger of the same hand.
He Speaks on Our Duty as a Nation
and Problems of Greatness.
WASHINGTON, March 4. President
Roosevelt, In his Inaugural aacress, spose
as follows:
My Fellow Citlsens: No people on earth
have more cause to be thankful than ours,
and this Is eald reverently. In no spirit of
boastfulnees in our own Btrength. but with
gratitude to the Giver of Good who na
blessed us with the conditions which have
enabled u to achieve so large a measure of
well-being and of happinest. To b as a
people It has been granted to lay the foun
dations of our National life in a new con
tinent. We are the heirs of the ages, and
yet we have had to pay few of the penalties
which In old countries are exacted by the
dead hand of a bygone civilization. We
bavo not been obliged to fight for our ex
istence against any alien race; and yet our
life has called for the vigor and effort with
out which the manlier and hardier virtues
wither away. Under such conditions it
would be our own fault If we failed; and
the success which we have bad In the past,
the success which we confidently believe the
future will bring, should cause la us no
feeling of vainglory, but rather a deep and
abiding realisation of all which life has
offered us; a full acknowledgment of the
responsibility which Is ours, and a fixed
determination to show that under a free
government a mighty people can thrive best,
alike as regards the things of the body and
the things of the soul.
Our Duty as a Great station.
Much" has been given to us, and much
will rightfully be expected from us. We
have duties to others and duties to oar
selves, and we can shirk neither. We have
become a great nation, forced by the fact
of its greatness Into relations with the
other nations of the earth; and we must
behave as beseems a people with such re
sponsibilities. Toward all other nations.
lurgcT aryi' small, our attitude must be one
of cordial and sincere friendship. We must
show not only in our words but In our
deeds that we are earnestly desirous of se
curing their good will by acting toward
them In a spirit of just and generous recog
nition of all their rights. But justice and
generosity In a nation, as In an Individual,
count most when shown not by the weak but
by the etrong. While ever careful to re
frain from wronging others, we must be
no less Insistent that we are not wronged
ourselves. We wish peace; but we wish the
peace of justice, the peace of righteous
ness. We wish it because we think it Is
right and not because we are afraid. No
weak nation that acts manfully and justly
should ever have cause to fear us, and no
strong power should ever be able to single
us out as a subject for Insolent aggression.
lroblems of Internal Growth.
Our relations with the other powers of
the world are Important; but still more im
portant are our relations among ourselves.
Suoh growth In wealth. In population and
la power as this nation has seen during
the century and a quarter of its national
life Is Inevitably accompanied by a like
growth la the problems which are ever be
fore every nation that rises to greatness.
Power Invariably means both responsibility
and danger. Our forefathers faced certain
perils which we have outgrown. We now
faco other perils the very existence of
which it was Impossible that they should
foresee. Modern life Is both complex and
Intense, and the tremendous . changes
wrought by the extraordinary Industrial de
velopment 'of the Last half century are felt
In every fiber of our social and political be
ing. Never before have men tried so vast
aad formidable an experiment as that of ad
ministering the -affairs of & continent under
the forms of a democratic republic. ' The
conditions which have told for our marvel
ous material well-being, which have de
veloped to a very high degre our energy,
self-reliance and individual Initiative, have
alto brought the care and anxiety insep
arable from the accumulation of great
wealth m industrial centers.
Upon the success, of our experiment much
dependc &ot only as regards our own wel
fare, but as regards the welfare of man
. kind. If we fall, the' causa of free self-
government throughout the world will rock
to Its foundations; and therefore our re
sponsibility Is heavy, to ourselves, to the
world as It is today, and to the generations
yet unborn. There is no good reason why
we should fear the future, but there Is
every reason why we should face It se
riously, neither hiding from ourselves the
gravity .of the problems before us nor fear
ing to approach these problems with the
unbending, unflinching purpose to solve
them aright.
Act In Spirit of Nation's Makers.
Tet, after all, though the problems are
new, though the tasks set before us differ
from the. tasks set before our fathers who
founded and preserved this Republic the
spirit In which these tasks must be under
taken and these problems faced. If our duty
Is to be well done, remains essentially un
changed. We know that self-government Is
difficult. We know that no people needs
such high traits of character as that people
which seeks to govern Its affairs aright
through the freely expressed will of the
freemen "who compose It. But we have
faith that we shall not prove false to the
memories or the men of the mighty past.
They did their work, they left us the splen
did heritage we now enjoy. We In our turn
have an assured confidence that we shall
be able to leave this heritage unwasted and
enlarged to our children and our children's
children. To do so. we must show, not
merely In great crises, but In the every
day affairs of life, the Qualities of practical
Intelligence, of courage, cf hardihood and
endurance, and above all the power of de
votion to a lofty Ideal, which made great
the men who founded this Republic In the
days of Washington, which made great the
men who preserved this Republic in the
days of Abraham Lincoln.
Procession to Scene of Inauguration
With Military Escort.
WASHINGTON, March 4. The White
House was astir earlier than usual this
morning, and after a. hurried breakfast
the President's household began active
preparations for the day's Important
events. The time set for the assembling
of the Cabinet and the Presidential es

In the meantime the troops to serve as
the President's escort had formed on
Pennsylvania avenue and the adjacent
streets. At least two hours before the
time eet for the President's departure the
square in front of the Executive Mansion
was densely packed with an enthusiastic
crowd, waiting to wish tho President
God-speed. Promptly at 10 o'clock the
President entered his carriage, drawn by
four bay horses, and with a detachment'
of his old regiment, the famous Rough
Riders, commanded by Colonel Alexander
Brodie, riding on either side as his per
sonal escort, started for the Capitol to

showed by their bronxed faces, sinewy
figures and their careless grace and
ease in the saddle the free life they had
led on the Western plains.
These men were chosen from the fa
mous Rough Riders whom the Presi
dent had led up San Juan Hill in the
Spanish war.
.Out into Pennsylvania avenue to the
stirring strains of "El Capltan" the
Presidential cavalcade swept along
past the Treasury building, there to be
met by a mighty roar, which was.
taken up by the thousands that lined
the way to the Capitol. As the Presi
dent's carriage wheeled into Pennsyl
vania avenue proper he leaned far out
to one side, shading his eyes with hi?
hand, and took a look down the avenue
toward the Capitol, whose mighty dome
was visible above the blue haze which
enshrouded the base.
Turning to Senator Spooner, he called
his attention to the splendid sight

American flags, stirred In tho stiff
breeze in the fair March morning, and
the crowds, the densest that ever lined
historic Pennsylvania avenue and Its

Galaxy of Generals.
The magnificent boulevard was
cleared from curb to curb its full
width, and the President and his es
cort were seen at their best. Lleuten
ant-General Chaffee, the hero of Pe
kln, the grand marshal of the day, ac
companied by Brigadier-General John
O. Johnson, headed tho general staff
of the Army, the first time this splen

tlclpatcd in an inaugural ceremony.
Directly behind the General camo the
color guard, composed of four cadets
from the Military Academy and four
midshipmen from Annapolis, sons of
veterans of the North and South in the
Civil War, save one unique figure in
the person of Cadet Titus, -who at
tained fame by being the first soldier
of the international armies to scale
the walls of Pekin in 1900.
The staff was composed of eight of
fleers of high rank, and they In turn
were followed by eight special aids

long ago promised to demand of bis
old command when he should ride up
Pennsylvania, avenue to assume the
Presidential office.
Veterans of Civil and Spanish Wars
Behind the Rough Riders were the car
riages of the Vice-President and of the
Cabinet, and then came a reminder of
the grim past a detachment of picked
veterans of the Grand Army of the Re
public whose gallant step belied the gray
locks and spore forms or tno oia soiaiers.
They led & detachment of veterans of the
Spanish-American War, of men who had
taken cart in the famous march to p enm
and of soldiers who had campaigned in
the Jungles of the Philippines. Closing
tho escorting column came veterans of
the regular Army and Navy, the whole
veteran organization led by iiajor-uen-

The President and his escort moved
along the avenue at a foot pace, owing
to the presence in the column or tne
dismounted veterans, to the Peace Monu
ment, at the east front of the Capitol
reservation. Wheeling Into rorth tf
street, the column moved, to First street

finished about 11 o'clock, the Presi

were sighted by tho throngs below, a
mighty shout went up and the Presi

and escorted Mrs. Boosevelt to tho
