The parade, the event of Inauguration
Day, after the swearing in of the President
and Vice President, was the biggest kind of
a success yesterday. Forty thousand men
were in line. They inarched superbly,
despite the cheerless weather, and won ap
plause all along the route. The spectators
were jubilant, too, and cheered the Presi
dent and his wife, the military organiza
tions and the civic clubs.
"Washington, March 4 "With wonder
ful patience the expectant spectators waited
for the procession while the inauguration
ceremonies were in progress. The rain had
abated somewhat, and taken the worse form
of a fine driving mist. It trickled from
thousands of umbrellas and ran in rivulets
down the backs of the unfortunates who did
not possess these useiul implements. De
spite all of the untoward surroundings, the
crowd preserved its good humor and passed
the long interval in flinging jokes and jibes
at self-important and isolated members of
the parading organizations, who were hur
rying along in undignified haste to join
HEBE THEY COME.
Finally the heed of the great procession
turned into Pennsylvania avenue on its
march to the "White House, and interest
ceased in all else. Forty-eight years ago
"William Henry Harrison on his white
horse headed a procession of 4,000 paraders
on the same route. At that day Admiral
Porter (then a lieutenant) said that it was
the finest pageant in the world. To-day
probably 40,000 men were in line to honor
the grandson, many of them coming from
sections of the country which in 1841 were
trackless areas of uninhabited territory.
The elements warred upon them, but they
held their own bravely. Looking eastward
from the Treasury, with the Capitol forming
a hazy yet stately background, the sight was
inspiring. The broad expanse of the avenue
glistened beneath the dull sky. Like giant
mushrooms the umbrellas of the multitude
covered the sidewalks. The crowds strained

S firmly and the avenue was kept clear forthe

General Beaver rode in advance, and his
" head was uncovered a great part of the time
in acknowledgment of the greeting of the
' great multitude, xne long line of troops
and militia and civilians with banners and
gnidons flving in the northern wind com
f plctely filled the vision. In its marching
fc step, varying with the time of the numer
r ous bands of music, it seemed to roll like
r the billows of the sea and always onwnrd.
Over all was heard a continuous roar made
up of the voices of thousands and thou
'sands of spectators as they cheered the
tresiaentai party or greeted some par
ticularly fine-looking body of troops.
"When the head of the procession reached
-the Treasury, a halt was called, and the

the party, with the exception of Mr. Cleve
land, repaired to the reviewing stand, and
the President and the Vice President had
rtheir first view of the grand pageant in
t which they had taken so conspicuous a part.
i - THE BEVTEWIXG STAND.
The stand at this time was filled, with the
exception of the seats reserved forthe Presi
'dents party. "When the President and
Vice President took their places at the
front of the stand they were at once recog
nized by the crowd gathered beneath them
and a mighty shout rent the air. The steady

itbe cheering lasted for several minutes.
Both JUr. Harrison and .Mr. .Morton raised
their hats in response and bowed richt and

and the remainder of the party took seats
behind them. The stand was elaborately
decorated with flags and bunting and pre
sented a pretty picture despite the rain. It
fiVas thronged with ladies in gay costumes
General Schofield and his staff occupied
teats to the right of the President and a
number of naval officers had seats on the

WjT ' BKV-LbWlNG THE FABAQE.
m The review began immediately after Pres
ident's arrival, and indeed was a beautiful
spectacle despite the adverse surroundings.
General Beaver, Chief Marshal, headed the
Iline with General Hastings as Chief of
IStafij followed by a great number of aids.
fAs they approached the stand they bared
(their heads and gave the Presidentamarch
jjinjr salute. The President and Mr. Morton
returned the compliment by removing their
hats. At the same time the band played
IHail to the Chief and the crowd cheered

appearance. It was composed of United
States troopit marine, naval apprentices
.and the National Guard of the District
LThe President recognized the salute of each
commanding officer bv raising his hat, and
pie alo,uncovered his head as each flag was
Mipped in salute. He spoke frequently to
Mr. Morton in commendation of the march
ing of the different regiments, and inquired
particularly about the identity of Colonel
Cecil CIay,commanuing the Second District
Kejriment, who raised an empty sleeve in
giving the usual salute. The alignment of
several companies was disturbed as they
passed the reviewing stand by a strong de
sire on the part of certain members to get a
glimpse of the Chief Magistrate.
CHEEKING THE FIRST X.ADY.
During a lull in the review an excited
colored individual on the sidewalk directly
below the reviewing party called for three
cheers for Harrison and Morton. They were
given with a hearty vigor that was really
inspiring, and were followed immediately
by three cheers for Mrs. Harrison, which
compliment the President acknowledged
with a bow.
The National Guard of Pennsylvania
composed the second division. It was com
manded by Major General John F.
Hartranft, and, as usual, when the Guard
has appeared at the capital, it created a sen
sation. The perfect alignment of the march
ing columns as they passed the President's
stand, the soldierly bearing of the men and
their "ready for any emergency" equip
ment, called forth from the great crowd
cheer after cheer of admiration.
The Third Division was commanded by
Governor J. B. Foraker, of Ohio, and as he,
accompanied by his staff, approached the
President's stand, he was cheered to the

patriotism were not effected, and with un
covered heads they paid their respects to the
new President. .
The Americus Club, of Pittsburg, was
next in line, and presented an unique ap
pearance. By this time, owing to the
lateness of the hour, a number of the or
ganizations had dropped out of line and
did not pass the reviewing stand, conse
quently the continuity of the programme
was broken. The Union League Club, of

WABM IN INDIANA.
A Fierce Fight Between Governor Hovey
and the Legislature No Money to be
Appropriated for the Govern
Indianapolis, March 4. The constitu
tional question which Governor Hovey has
raised in regard to the appointing offices of
the State, has alarmed the majority of the
Legislature, who apparently did not antici
pate any check in their plans for taking all
appointments from the Governor. The
Legislature, however, declined to recede
from its outlined course and continued to
rush through its partisan measures. Of
the 37 appointments vested in the Governor
the Legislature has taken away 35, and has
now under headway a bill depriving of
Governor Hovey remains unshaken in his
position. He states that he will continue
to veto all bills which may provide for
placing the appointive power in the irre
sponsible hands of the General Assembly.
He does not doubt for a moment that he is
right in his stand, he says, and is positive
the only outcome of the controversy that
can result will be an unequivocal confirma
tion of his opinions by the highest courts.
He states that he will not recede from his
position by a hair's breadth unless com
pelled to do so by the Supreme Court of the
United States. It his opinion is not sus
tained by the highest court in Indiana he
will appeal to the United States Supreme
The grounds for his appeal will be that
the National Constitution guarantees to
every State a republican form of govern
ment He said to-day:
By pursuing the line of action which the
legislative has adopted it may take into its own
hands at any moment the election of the
thousands of offices of the State. It may take
directly from the people their rights as well as
from the Governor. If the logic of its action
be followed to its natural conclusion the State
will become purely an oligarchy, and the Con
stitution, under which the Government nomi
nally operates, may as well be surrendered.
The position the Governor has taken has
caused the majority of the Legislature to
seek retaliatory measures, and to-day a bill
was passed by the House repealing the
statutory appropriations and making it a
penal offense for the Treasurer of State to
pay out any money except to the benevolent
institutions, unless it has been specifically
appropriated. The plan seems to be to
refuse to pass the general appropriation
bill, and thus deprive the Governor, the
State officers, the Supreme Judges, Circuit
Judges and prosecuting attorneys of their
salaries for two years.
It is also positive that the appropriations
are to be denied for the purpose ot compell
ing the Governor to call an extra session of
the Legislature. The Governor stated em
phatically this evening that there would be
no extra session. The minority members
attempted to call up the general and'-defi.
cieney appropriation bill to-day, bnt the
majority wonld not permit it Both Houses
to-day passed over the Governor's veto the
bill depriving the newly elected reporters

A DEMOCRATIC BREAK.
One of That Party's Legions Decides In
Favor of no Whisky Debate Among
the Club's members Both bides Quote
From Dispatch Straws.
The Democratic Legion of Lawrenceville
had a debate last night on the Constitu
tional amendment question. The audience
of 150 persons was made up mainly of
Irishmen, and judging by the applause of
each faction, the friends of the move
ment seemed to be t in the majority.
J. B. McCally presided. He introduced
the subject with a speech that many per
sons sized up as against the amendment
When the question was leady for argument,
T. W. McClelland opened lor the affirma
tive. He is a smooth-faced young man, but
had a habit of combing his chin in the most
approved stump-speaker style when it
was necessary to refer "to a desk
where his notes lay. He told all about the
atrocious evils of whisky drinking, dwell
ing upon them with a blood-curdling
vividness. Financially, he proved the
liquor" traffic to be the country's curse,
78,000,000 having been spent for liquor in
Pennsylvania in one year, and only $76,
000,000 having been realized in the profits
of the iron business. By statistics he
proved that fewer workmen are employed to
the million of dollars invested by the liquor
interests than by any other branch or
interest of commerce in the world.
As to these few workmen being thrown out"
of employment, he ridiculed "the sympathy
now being wasted upon them," and declared
that less commiseration had been shown
forthe thonsands of honest coal miners
thrown out of work by natural gas. If pro
hibition is adopted these same workmen
will spend the money in something else than
liquor, and thus business will be improved.
It had been written:
Ho who buys land buys many stones:
Ho who bus meat also buys bones.
And he who buys eggs bujs many shells.
Bat he who buys whisky buys nothing else.
Another smooth-faced young man, Jacob
Miller, took the floor for the negative side.
He admitted, without enumeration, that
evils resulted from whisky drinking, but
denied that they could be eradicated by this
method. He then made several bold
charges, supporting each with elaborate ar
gument These were that the 10,000 or 15,
000 workmen who would be thrown idle by
the adoption of this amendment would
glut the labor market; that the' great
State of Pennsylvania would be com
pletely and utterly ruined financially
by the .sweeping of distilleries and
breweries out of existence; that the majority
of Prohibitionists are fanatics; that this is
a direful blow at personal liberty, and that
the old Bomans, the present France and
Germany, and other powerful nations,' are
all liquor-drinking countries. Mr. Miller
read from The Dispatch's recent inter
view with Ex-Chief Justice Gordon,atBrook
ville, to show that local option would be a
better temperance law fpr Pennsylvania
than absolute prohibition. He tried to
prove that prohibition does not prohibit in
.Kansas or Iowa.
"William A. Carney, who made the second
speech for the affirmative, also read from
The Dispatch's interview with mer
chants in Indiana, Pa., to show that pro
hibition there had resulted in wives having
more money to buy groceries, boots and
shoes, drygoods, etc., than they had before
prohibition. Mr. Carney gave facts about
the national and international medical asso
ciations tracing the heavy rate of mortality
and sickness to alcoholic drinks.
Thomas Grundy, a gray-haired man who
is prominent in the Liberal League, did
battle for the negative side,arguing that if it
was simply to maintain personal liberty
that people should vote against the amend
ment; and that, he said, is a dear principle
Mr. McClelland, for the affirmative, sub
mitted figures to prove that prohibition does
prohibit in tho West The other advocate
ot the amendment said a saloon keeper has
no right to interfere with the personal lib
erty of his neighbor.
The judges, by a vote of 2 to 1, decided
in favor of the affirmative arguments.

PITTSBURG GETS THESE.
Besides the regular militia, Pittsburg was
represented in the military parade in the
Third Division by the Washington Light
Infantry in their blue uniforms and big
black shakers. More attractive to the pub
lic than they, however, was the Pittsburg
Midget Band, which marched before them
in gray uniforms, playing patriotic airs
with a. vim that won them frequent ap
plause along the line of march.
Philadelphia carried off the honors from
the rest of the State of Pennsylvania, in the
civic portion oi the procession, but the
Americus Club, of Pittsburg, was conspicu
ous above all others save the Lincoln Club,
ot Cincinnati, which was the escort to the
Marshal of the Civic Division by being the
escort of the Marshal of the First Brigade
ot the division. They were one of the hand
somest bodies of men in the whole line. The
AmericnsClub didn't get a chance to march
for about an hour after the Pittsburg mili

out proudly and briskly in the parade with
Harry Paul in command.

mittee on Codification and Revision of Consti
tution, have been in session all day and evening
getting their report ready to be submitted to the
meeting to-morrow. A number ot rules were
adopted at the St Louis meeting which the
committee is codifying and putting in shape.
The committee has nothing to give out until
the report is submitted to the association. Mr.
Byrne will not present a plan for classifying
players in the Association at this meeting. He
thinks that the Leagueplan had better De given
a fair trial, and if proven successful then it
would be thought of and acted upon by the
Association. He does not venture an opinion,
however, as to the adaptability of the League
plan, preferring to await the result of the trial.
Mr. Speas says he will ask the convention to
consider his plan to incorporate the American
Association into a pool. His plan is to form
an association with eight clubs, witn sufficient
capital invested to make the pool Belf-sustain-ing,
and to make money for each of the eight
clubs beside, when they have individually
given evidence of supporting themselves. In
case of failure, the franchise is to be placed by
the association directory at its discretion.
There will be a president of the association,
with eight directors. Each club will have a
local directory of three members. The plan
is in sympathy with the Bichter mil
lenlum plan, except that it eliminates
minor leagues and their proposed
idea of husbandinz players. The president of
the association will be president of each club,
and no club shall have original stockholders as
its officers. Each club will present a list of
names of its players to the general directory,
and that body, without assistance or advice of
the club so turning in the list, wilt determine
the value of each player. Stock will be issued
to each club upon a basis of the club's earning
The plan, Mr. Speas thinks, would do away
with the annual wrangling of clubs as to
whether theyiwill remain in the association or
not and the quarreling about players. The
pool and classified salary subject will be dis
cussed, but Wheeler Wykoff says no action will
be taken on either.

ABOUT THE BROOKLTNS.
A Little Talk From George Smith and Mr.
George Smith, the Brooklyn short-stop, ar
rived in the city yesterday. He has signed
with the Brooklyns for next season and natur
ally sneaks well of that club. He thinks
that the team with which he is connected will
not only defeat the Giants in the exhibition
games that the tw6 teams have to play, but he
is sure that he and his colleagues will win the
Association pennant Smith is in excellent
condition and expects to play well.
Mr. Byrne.or Charley Byrne, as we all know
him, passed through the city yesterday. Mr.
Byrne, who has the secrets of the Association,
I cannot tell you what our' meeting will do.
We have a graded salary plan, of course, and
when everything is settled I think we'll be
all right It really is idle talk for any man in
our position to say anything definite on these
questions if he has any respect for himself as a
gentleman. Of course, I think we have an ex
cellent club in Brooklyn, what else could I say."
The Herron HIII Shoot.

with 11 entries, were: Q. A. McClure, 94 out of
a possible 100: Charles Richardson. 83; F. F.
Davison, 82; George Snyder, 81. Each man had
to shoot at 23 blue rocks, and the distance was
as usual,16 yards for 12-guage guns and 18 for la

THE worst features about dangerous soaps is the damage done
before their injurious effects are detected. The injury done to
clothing by the use of poor soap is often greater than the actual
wear. Professor Cornwall,, of Princeton College, says the Ivory
Soap is pure. His statement should be sufficient guarantee for you
to have only the Ivory Soap used in your family. "
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps, each represented to be "just as good as the 'Ivory'"
they ARE NOT, but like all counterfeits, lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities of
the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and insist upon getting it.
