March in Parade.
Headed by America's Greatest. Gen
.ersTls, Its faefenders by Land and
'iSeaFrom Mainland and Is
v .sylands Make Noble Sight.
WASHINGTON, March 4.-President
Roosevelt led his inaugural parade in
quick marching time from the Capitol
to.theJWhite House. No procession in
rcccrtt years has been as prompt hi mov
ing from one end of the avenue to the
other. The troops marched in ideal
weather, the sky being clear, the sun
warm and a fair breeze blowing; The
President lost no time in formalities.
He descended, the steps -which were
put In place in front of the inaugural
rtand and took his carriage without re
entering the CapltoL The inaugural
march began at 1:20 o'clock and as the
President's carriage, followed by that of
Vice-President Fairbanks and thos: of
the members of the Cabinet proceeded
through the Capitol grounds the vast
throng hastily placed Itself on either side
of the line of march and cheered with
out ceasing.
The procession moved slowly and Mr.
Roosevelt, in ackowledging the saluta
tions from cither side, rose to his feet
repeatedly and with his silk hat in his
hand bowed light and left. The build
ings facias the Capitol grounds through
which the procession passed were occu
pied to their full capacity with cheering
people who waved flags and handker
chiefs. No Incident marred In the slignt
est degree the. inaugural procession as it
left the scene of the inaugural addtss
and proceeded past the peace monument
and took its way toward the "White
House on the broad avenue.
Applause Marks Its Progress.
The procession formed Immediately be
hind the carriages of the Presidential
party and In the order previously ar
ranged, marched from the CapltoL The
.splendid triumphal pageant, preceded by
a platoon of mounted police, moved up
the avenue amid the frantic applause
of the thousands who packed the line
of march on either side to view the
spectacular and public feature of the
day. The Fifth Artillery Band followed
the police and in stirring time led thu
on-coming marchers. The more military
character of the return from the Capitol,
as contrasted with the march to the
Capitol, was due. In part, to the fact
that the old veterans who followed the
President on foot this morning bada him
farewell at the Capitol and their places
were taken by mounted ofllcers on ihe
staff of the grand marshal and their
'special aids.
Squadron A, of the New Tork National
Guard, in brilliant uniforms of blue,
again formed the President's personal es
cort, together with the officers of the
President's old Rough Rider regiment In
contrast with the khaki uniforms of the
Rough Riders was the Regular Army
uniform of Lieutenant Granville Fortes
cuo, the President's cousin, who "went
from the Rough Riders Into the Regular
Army after the war. but rode with his
former comrades.
Cadets Lead the Regulars.
The military grand division of the pro
cession came after the Rough Riders. Major-General
James F. "Wade, as' chief
marshal, with a splendidly uniformed
staff, representing each staff corps of the
Army, led the division. Foremost In the
line were the pets of the Army and Navy,
the WeBt Point' cadets and the middies
from Annapolis, with the District of Co
lumbia National Guard, which has come
to be looked upon as almost a part of the
Regular Army organization.
The cadets, headed by Brigadier-General
Frederick Grant, and under their own
superintendent, Brigadier-General Mills,
acquitted themselves splendidly.
There was a diversity about their or
ganization which made it very attractive,
for .it represented infantry, field artillery,
new mountain battery platoons and the
cavalry which makes "West Point famous
throughout the world.
The midshipmen surprised everybody.
Bailors are not supposed to be good foot
uoldlers, yet beyond question the two
battalions from Annapolis. 700 strong, gava
the West Pointers the hardest contest they
ever had for first place in. a parade The
boys in their navy blue, tightly-fitting
jackets and leggins, marched with a pre
cision that was wonderful, and were
cheered at almoBt every step. In their wake
came the revenue marine cadets, a new
feature in tho Inaugural parade and one
so attractive as to be sure of retention
in the future.
Finest Marchers of All.
The heart of the Army, the mainstay
of disciplinarians, tho splendidly drilled
engineers, were represented by the Sec-
ond Battalion, Major Burr commanding,
and as tho men marched in files of 20
they received unlimited applause. Tho
pick of tho Army had been cheered for
their splendid procession, so that, while
the representation from each branch of
the service was small, it was beyond ques
tion the finest body of troops ever gath
ered on Pennsylvania avenue.
The Signal Corps, the provisional regi
ment made up of two battalions, and the
Coast Artillery, all had representatives.
The men who man the great guns at
tbe seacoast fortifications. In their spick
and span uniforms, showing brilliant
touches of colors of white, yellow, red.
blue and green, typifying tho various
branches of the service, made a moving
picture calculated to t,tlr to its depths the
lovers ot tho Regular Army.
Greeting to Porto Ricans.
Porto Rico was well represented in the
parade. Major Thomas W. Griffith, of
the Rogular Army, commanded the bat
talion of the Porto Rican provisional regl
tuont, which camo all the way from its
Island home to participate In tho Inau
guration. The crowds were quick to rec
ognlzo them, and were generous In tbelr
applause of the excellent showing these
troops made. Even more unusual, how
over, was tho sight of tho First Battalion
of the Philippine Scouts, Major W. S.
Johnson, U. S. A., commanding, who-were
chosen to represent tbe archipelago in
the first inaugural parade in which these
little brown men of the Far East have
" Only tho American soldier who has
erved In the Philippine knows how loyal
has been the service of these men for
their new-found country. It was the ox
pressed wish of the President that they
should be in this parade, and the mili
tary precision with which they marched
up tho avenue, showed that they appre
olated the honor.
Pageant Rests for Lunch.
About 3 o'clock the troops came to a
halt, tlie President having reached the
White House on schedule time and gone
lo Ills official home for a hurried lunch
eon. The men, as they rested on their
arms along tho broad avenue, seemed
glad of the opportunity the wait gave
them to spruce up to pass in review be
fore their newly inaugurated President
All along the avenue from the Treasury
building to the Capitol and far beyond
stretched xhe splendid pageant the trim
mings of the uniforms and the steel of
weapons glittering in the sunlight .While
4 parade 'rest the soldiers amused fbem
. selves watching tha scenes alone the
curb. Incidents of human interest were
many. On the top of a building opposite
the Postoffice Department a young man
and his girl danced a two-step to the
rapid melody of "Back, Back. Back to
Baltimore." played by one ot the bands in
the parade.
It was exactly five minutes before 3
o'clock when the Philippine Scouts, who
were toward the last of the second bri
gade, first division, of the military grand
division, resumed their march and passed
the Postoffice Department with as per
fect a line as was to be seen in the pa
rade. Their progress was marked by
great cheering. . , , ,, ,
"With its peerless band playing a martial
air and the men stopping like automatons,
the provisional regiment of United States
Marines, headed by Colonel Karmany and
his staff, followed, led by a soldierly man
with an empty sleeve. He was Captain
Harry Leonard, who left one arm on the
battlefield of Tien TslH. when the Amer
ican marines pointed tho way to all na
tions in the march to Pekin. The marines
were greeted with tumultuous applause as
they marched proudly along. i
They opened the way for something new
in an inaugural line of march in the shape
of a provisional regiment of sailors. The
crews of the armored cruisers Colorado
and "West Virginia made up a full regi
ment and not merely a detachment or
two, as in the past The sailors wore
their leggings and tried their best to
carry their carbines at the regulation an
gle. The third battalion ot field artillery,
commanded by Major Hoyle, with the men
sitting motionless on their caissons, gave
the public one ot the first exhibitions of
the new Army fleldguns. This weapon,
not bronze or blackened as was the old
piece, but shining like silver, mounted on
its khaki-colored carriage, made a fine

good, but certainly no One ever saw on
this side of tho world the. superior or,
perhaps even the equal, of the gallant
Seventh and Ninth Squadrons which next
moved up Pennsylvania avenue, 16 files
deep, their pennants snapping in the
breeze. The Seventh rode bay horses as
closely matched as bits of mahogany, save
the last company, which was mounted on
high-stepping black chargers. The black
men of the Ninth, mounted on their bay
steeds, had come all the way from Kan
sas to do honor to the President to whose
aid they had come in his hour of need in
the bloody conflict on San Juan H11L
The end of the parade passed the re-viewing-stand
at 6:13 P. M. The Presi
dent then returned to tho "White House
with his party.
President Saves His Warmest Praises
for the Cowboys.
Washington, March 4. "It was a great
success, gentlemen, and did you notice
that bunch of cowboys? Oh, they are the
boys that can ride. Oh, it was all superb.
It really touched mo to tho heart"
This was the comment made by Presi
dent Roosevelt to a representative of the
Associated Press as he was leaving the
reviewing stand for the "White House at
the conclusion of the magnificent inaugu
ral parade arranged in his honor.
The President had been standing for
three and a half hours reviewing the
great parade and receiving tho enthusias
tic congratulations of the plain people ot
the land. His acknowledgment of the
tribute thus paid to him personally and to
his exalted office constituted a fitting end
ing of the formal ceremonies incident to
his Inauguration as the 26th President of
the United States.
It was a picturesque scene that was pre
sented by the President's reviewing stand,
located in the very center of the unique
and beautiful Court of History, on the
south side of Pennsylvania avenue and
directly in front of tho "White House. It
was filled from end to end with hand
somely gowned women and distinguished
Sections of the stand had been reserved
for the Governors of states, for members
of the Inaugural committee, the personal
guests of President Roosevelt and Vice
President Fairbanks, for General "Wade,
Senator Frye, Speaker Cannon, the Pres
ident's Cabinet, the Diplomatic Corps,
the Supreme Court of the United States,
the members ot the Senate and the House
of Representatives, Bishop Satterlee, Car
dinal Gibbons, for the District Columbia
Court of Appeals, the District Supreme
Court and the Commissioners.
It was 2 o'clock when President Roose
velt, accompanied by his party, arrived at
the White House from the CapltoL
Luncheon was served immediately to the
assembled company of the President's
friends and distinguished guests, and at
2:43 o'clock he entered the reviewing
stand. His entranco was unannounced,
but the great throng awaiting him arose
as one person and received him standing.
Accompanying him were Mrs. Roosevelt
Vice-President and Mrs. Fairbanks and
others of the families and personal friends
of the President and Vice-President It
was 2:45 o'clock beforo the parade began
to pass the reviewing stand. Vlce-Pre.-dent
Fairbanks rose and grasped Presi
dent Roosevelt's hand in a hearty clasp.
v During the greater part of the review
the President kept up a running fire of
comment with Senator Bacon on various
features of the parade, losing not an op
portunity to direct attention to the fea
tures which were carrying into effect his
own -viewa and opinions.
All of the cowpunchers knew the Presi
dent personally, and as they passed the
stand, they shouted to him. waved their
hats and cheered like wlldmen. One of
their unmber added Interest to the occa
sion by lassoing various persons along
the route of the parade. Including a big
policeman. Tho diversion afforded him
and the spectators the greatest delight
After the parade, the President received
and shook hands with the cowboys. He
also gave an informal reception to tho
delegation of Harvard students in caps
and gowns, who stopped In front of the
stand and gave the President the Roosevelt-Harvard
The parade was finished at :1S o'clock,
and tho President and party returned Im
mediately to the "White House.

Inaugurated as Vice-President. March
4. 1905.
WASHINGTON, March 4.-In the pres
ence ot as many of his fellow citizens
as could be crowded into the Senate
chamber. Charles Warren Fairbanks was
at high noon today inducted into the of
fice of Vice-President of the United States.
The ceremony was quickly followed by
the final adjournment of the Senate of
the 58th Congress, the beginning of a
special session, an address by the Vice-
President and the swearing into office of
almost a third of tbe membership of the
Senate. All these official' acts took place
in the chamber just before the inaugura
tion of the President, and were in reality,
while themselves of great import, the
prelude of the more important event.
The installation of the new Vice-Presi
dent was severely simple, and as brief
as simple. It consisted of a promise, sol
emnly made with uplifted hand and bowed
head, to perform the duties of the office
and to support and defend the Constitu
tion of the United States. This was
the oath of office, and it was administered
by Senator Frye as president pro tem
pore of the Senate. The two officials stood
confronting each other on the elevated
platform on which rests the desk of the
presiding officer of the Senate, practically
on the eame spot on which au the in
coming Vice-Presidents for the past 50
years have stood, and where a majority
of American freemen have decreed that
Mr. Fairbanks shall preside for the four
years tn come. Plain and dexnocratla
though tho ceremony was, it attracted to
the Senate a gathering of notable people.
many of them of such importance that, in
accordance with time-honored custom,
their appearance was heralded with pomp
and platitude sufficient to atone for tho
simplicity of the official acta of tho occa
sion, if not auite to oversnadow them.
These guests included the fpremcst rep
resentatives of tho -officia) life of UiO
capital city, foreign and domestic, civil
and military, and also many other per
sons of prominence from all parts of the
Great Men and Fair Women.
On the Benate floor, with his Cabinet,
were the President of the United States,
himself about to be inaugurated: the Dip
lomatic Corps, tbe Supremo Court of the
United States, the House of Representa
tives, tho Lieutenant-General of the
Army, the Governors of states, and oth
ers distinguished by reason of position
or achievement. These sufficed to tax
the capacity of that part of the hall,
and they were splendidly supplemented
and surrounded by the attendance- in
the galleries, consisting la large part of
the wives, relatives and mends or the
men who occupied seats below, many of
them as distinguished in private and so
cial life as the others in the publlo serv
ice. Practically all tbe variety of hue and
-vivacity of scene came from the galleries.
for aside from the decorations worn by
the foreign representatives and tho gold
lace with which tho uniforms of the few
Army and Navy officers present were dec
orated, there was a dull level of black
and brown on the first floor. This mo
notony was relieved somewhat in the
background by a sprinkle of gold on tho
gray walls of tho chamber, but It was
not sufficient to compensate for the ab
sence of animation which only the ladle?,
with their flowers and ribbons and feath
ers, could contribute. The section of the
gallery usually devoted to the private use
of Senators was today entirely surren
dered to what may be called the execu
tive party, and was occupied by the fami
lies and immediate friends of the Presi
dent and the Vice-President and of tha
members of the Supreme Court and the
Cabinet. The front row of seats- on one
side of this section was filled by tho

Charcoal Is a remedy that the more

It absorbs the injurious gases which

The diplomatic gallery, which is rarely
occupied by more than two or three per
sons at a time, was crowded today by
the wives of representatives of the vari
ous foreign embassies and legations, all
manifesting- much eagerness to witness
what they evidently considered an. excep
tional ceremony. Directly opposite that
quarter numerous members of the news
paper fraternity occupied their usual
places in the press gallery, most of them
diligently engaged In portraying the In- i
tcrestlng scenes about them. Other por
tions ot the gallery wre given over to
pereons holding special tickets. Every
niche and cranny was filled, but the care
ful rearrangement which limited the
number of tickets to the exact capacity
of the hall prevented unseemly crowding.
The gallery visitors were practically all
in their seats before the official guests
began to make their appearance. This
circumstance was due to the fact that
while the officials were detained until a
specified time, the gallery doors were
opened at 11 o'clock, and ticket-holders
permitted to enter any time thereafter.
They found more of the star performers
in their assigned places, if Senators may
be excepted, but the wait was not long,
and la the meantime the gallery visitors
easily devised entertainment among them
selves. Tbe Senators, many of them
showing fatigue as the result of recent
long hours of labor, were grouped to
gether compactly on the Republican side
of the chamber, an arrangement nec
essary to mako room for other dignitaries.
Distinguished Men Ushered In.
The two big, round-faced gold clocks
which front with solemn mien and In
stately service from tho north and south
walls of the Senate chamber, had meas
ured the time up. to 11:43 when the first
of tho special guests arrived. These were
the members of the House of Representa
tives. They had marched over in a body
to the quarters of the Senate through the
long corridor from their own hall at the
other end of the Capitol, headed by their
redoubtable leader. Speaker Cannon, with
all tho assurance of an invading army,
and when the south doors of the Senate
chamber swung open and Assistant Ser-
geant-at-Arms -Layton announced "The
Speaker and the House of Representa
tives," they walked proudly to the.-'seats
assigned them on the Democratic side of
the chamber, accepting as their due the
honor done them when, upon the stroke
of the gavel of the President pro tempore,
the Senate and Its visitors rose as one.
person to welcome them.
The Speaker had scarcely taken his seat
at the side of the presiding officer, and
Senators and guests bad not more than
resumed their chairs, when tbe doors
again parted, and Alonzo H. Stewart, also
Assistant Sergeant-at-Arms, heralded in
genuine feudal style the approach of the
diplomats, headed by Count Caaslrd. dean
of the corps. "The Ambassadors and
Ministers Plenipotentiary," he said in
ringing tones, and again, upon the fall of
the gaveL all came to a standing posture.
-while Sergeant-at-Arms Ran sd ell escorted
tha foreign dignitaries to their places
fronting the presiding officer. The for
eigners attracted much attention, and the
brilliancy of their dress and the distinc
tion of the gentlemen themselves were the
subjects of much admiring comment.
Events followed Quickly. From this
time until Senator Fairbanks began his
address the Senators and their visitors
were kept constantly engaged in rising
to receive newcomers. The Ministers were
sharply followed by the Supreme Court,
officially gowned In long, monkish robes,
and with Chief justice Fuller, distin
guished In appearance, leading the van.
The judiciary -was succeeded by Lieutenant-Gen
oral Chaffee, Chief of Staff, and
his aids.
Gradually the hall was filled, and the
scene had become more and more ani
mated, until for the last time in connec
tion with the occasion the doors were
opened to. admit a guest. He was the
guest of guests tho President the Presi
dent and the President-elect Theodore
Enter, the President.
"The President and his Cabinet!" pro
claimed Sergeant-at-Arms RansdelL Again
all were on tbelr feet, and again -was at
tention sharply fixed. In the entire as
semblage there were comparatively few
who could not boast personal acquaint
ance with the Chief Executive, but this
fact did not prevent a general craning of
necks to observe him on this, the crown
ing occasion in bis career. All oyes were
turned upon him as. accompanied by tbe
Congressional Committee and the mem
bers of the official household, he walked
down the center aisle of the chamber in
the -wake of the convoying Sergeant-at-Arms,
who placed him In a big red
leather chair immediately in front of the
presiding officer's desk, where, himself an
Interested spectator, and still flanked by
the committee on arrangements, he sat
facing the other spectators. He had gona
directly to his seat,, looking scarcely to
the right or to the left, but evidently
never unmindful of the splendid scene
about 'him. He has once before been a
participant in an inaugural ceremony, but
then only as the recipient of second
honors. He -was there now as the head of
the people of the Nation, and by right of
their choice. His manner was that of a
man who appreciates responsibilities and
at the same time fools capable of assum
ing them self-conscious and self-reliant,
the object of all observation and alive to
all surroundings.
But the Chief Exeoutlve had very lit
tle time for reflecting. Inauguration
time had arrived. The man -who had
shared with him the honors of tho last
election had been ushered In In the per
son of Senator Fairbanks, and -was even
now standing where on the Fourth of
March, 1301, Mr. Roosevelt himself
had stood to take the oath of tho Vice
Presidential office. Senator Fairbanks
had been escorted by 'the committee
on arrangements to the platform on
which sat President Pro Tempore Frye
and Speaker Cannon, the former of
whom was on tho eve of performing
tho last act of his present term in that
office by administering the' oath which
would make Mr. Fairbanks, not only
Vice-President, but also the permanent
presiding officer of tho Senate.
Oath Taken by Vice-President.
Senator Fry does all things with
promptness -and 'decision. The two of
ficial timepieces were agreed in pro
claiming: the hour of 12, when, accord
ing to the requirements made and pro
vided, the Fifth-eighth Congress must
come to a. close, the Fifty-ninth Con
grcss be started on its career and the
new presiding officer Introduced and
Installed. Mr. Frye had already said
farewell: tho vlstors were In their
seats. Not a moment was lost. Rising
In front of the slender, but towering
form of his successor, the President
pro tempore repeated to him in the
form of an official oatn the lew lm
presslve words which transformed the
Indiana leadcrfrom the position of
a Senator to that of Vice-President of
tho United States. The ceremony did
not consume to exceed two minutes ot
.time, but it was conducted with such
dignity and solemnity as to make a
lasting impression on all present. Pro
found stillness characterized the dense
assemblage-' while it was in progress,
nono present apparently falling to ap
preciate that an act of sacred National
import was being- performed.
The oath concluded, tho two leading-
participants shook hands cordially
and Mr. Frye spoke a few hurried
words Of congratulation. With a last
positive thump of the gavel, the Maine
Senator relinquished his position as
President pro tempore by announcing
the final adjournment of the Fifty
eighth Congress. Without a look back
ward, he vacated the seat ho had occu
pied -for almost four years, stepped
from the presiding officer's platform
