We saw a little patch of blue.
Yesterday but yesterday
In a dark cloud, breaking through,
It had spring's celestial dye;
We were watching it on high
We, my little love and I,
Then we fi.lt a drop of rain,
Yesterday but yesterday
Like a tear that fell in vain,
But we knew well what it meant,
For it had the April scent
Pioneer, that earthward went,
Thon we felt a tiny breez.
Yesterday but yester lay J ' '
Not a tempest in the trees,
Only one small breath of love,
Like as if some brooding duve
Fanned us as it flew above,
After that we listened long,
Yesterday but yesterday
Ay! we heard the brooklet's song,
It was but a new-born cry.
Strutting from the ice-fields nigh,
That we hvard, my love and 1,
But it grew as on it sped,
Yesterday but j-csterday
Tumbling o'er its rocky bed,
And it met the sun's wanu ray,
Coyly, as it burst away
From the shadows cold and gray.
Then we heard a robin's note,
Yesterday but yesterday
And we saw the white clouds float,
And we found in fairy dells,
Waking bees from wintry cells,
Snowy cups anil violet bells,
Ah! these were sweet winds of heaven,
Yesterday but yesterday
Heaven on earth to mortals given,
It was spring's celestial dye;
We were watching low and high
We, my little love and I,

may be made both instructive and en

Fellow Citizens In the presence
of this vast assemblage ef my country
men I am about to supplement and
seal by the oath which I shall take, the
manifestation of the will f a great and
free people. In the exercise of their
power and right to solf government they
have committed to one of their fellow
citizens a supreme and sacred trust, and
he here consecrates himself to their ser
vice. This impressive ceremony adds
little to the solemu sense of responsibil
ity with which I contemplate the duly I
owe to all the people of the land. Noth
ing can relieve me trom anxiety, lest by
any action of mine their interests may
suffer, and nothing is needed to strength
en my resolution to engage every fac
ulty and effort ia the promotion of their
Amid party strife the people's choice
was made, but its attendant circum
stances have demonstrated anew the
strength and safety of a government by
the people, lu each succeeding year
it more clearly appears that our dem
ocratic principles need no apology, and
that, in its fearless and faithful appli
cation is to fe' found the surest guar
anty of good government. But. the best
results to be found in the operation of
a government wherein every citizen has
a share, largely depend upon a proper
limitation of purely party zeal and ef
fort, and a correct appreciation of the
lime when the heat of partisanship
should be merged into the patriotism ef
the citizen. To-day the executive
branch of government is transferred to
a new keeping, but this is still a gov
ernment ot all the people, and it should
be none the less an object of their affec
tionate solicitude, At this hour the
animosities of political strife, the bit
terness of partisan defeat, and exulta
tion of partisan triumph should be sup
planted by ungrudging acquiescence in
the popular will, and sober, conscien
tious concern fur the general weal.
Moreover, if from this hour we cheer
fully and honestly abandon all sectional
prejudice and distrust, and determine
with confidence iu one another, to work
out harmoniously the achievement of
oar national destiny, we shall deserve
to receive alt the benefits which our
happy form of government can bestow.
On tins auspicious occasion we may
well renew the pledge of our devotion
to that constitutioifQvhich, launched by
the founders of the republic and conse
crated by their prayers and patriotic
devotion, has- for a century Jborne
the " hopes and aspirations of a great
people, through prosperity and peace,
through the shock of foreign conflicts
and the perils of domestic strife. By
the father of. his country our constitu
tion was commended for adoption as
the result of a spirit of amity and mu
tual concession. In that same spirit it
should be administered, in order to
promote the lasting welfare of the coun
try and to secure the fall measure of
its priceless benelits to us and to those
who will succeed to the blessings of
onr national life. The largo variety of
diverse and competing interests subject
to federal control, pcrsisteutly seeking
recognition of their claims need give us
no fear that "the greatest good to the
greatest number" will fail to be accom
plished, if in the halls of the national
legislation that spirit ot amity and mu
tual concession shall prevail in which
the constitution had its birth. If this
involves the surrender or postponement
of private interests, and abaLdonment
of local advantages, compensation will
be found in the assurance that thus the
common interest is subserved and the
general welfare advanced.
In the discharge of my official duty I
shall endeavor to be guided by a just
aud unstrained construction of the con
stitution, a careful observance ef the
disfinotion between the powers guaran
teed to the federal government and
those reserved to the states or to the
people, and by a cautious appreciation
and laws have been especially assigned
to the executive branch of the govern
ment. But he who tnkes oath to day
to preserye, protect and defend the con
stitution of the United States, only as
sumes that solemn obligation which
every patriotic citizen on the farm, in
the busy marts of trade, and everywhere,
should share with him. The constitu
tion which prescribes his oath, my
countrymen, is yeurs. The government
which you have chosen him to admin
ister for a time is yours; the suffrage
which executes the will of freemen is
yours; the laws and the entire scheme
of our civil rule, from the town meeting
to the state capitol and the national
capitol, is you.s. Your every voter,
as assuredly as your chief magistrate
under the same high sanction, thougl
in a differeat sphere, exercises a public
trust, Nor is this all; every citizen
owes to the country a vigilant watch
and close scrutiny of its public servants,
and a fair and reasonable estimate of
their fidelity and usefulness. This is
the people's will impressed upon the
whole framework of our civil policy
municipal, state and federal. And this
is the price of our liberty and the in
spiration of your faith in the republic.

The genius of our institutions, the
needs of our people in their home life,
and the attention which is demanded
for settlement or development of the
resources ef our vast territory, dictate
the scrupulous avoidance of any depart
ure from that foreign p'.licy commended
by history, tradition, aad the prosper.
ity of our republic. It is a policy of
independence, favored by our position
and defined by our known love of jus
tice, and by our power; it is a policy
of peace, suitable to our interests; it is
a policy of neutrality, rejecting all
share iu foreign broils and ambitions
upon other continents and repelling
their intrusion here; it is the policy of
Monroe and Washington and Jefferson,
of peace, commerce and honest friend
ship with all nations; entangling alli
ances with none.
A due regard for the interests and
prosperity of all the people demands

justed as to relieve the people from un
necessary taxation, having due regard
to the interests of capital invested and
