of lVnn.sylvani.i with modest dignity.
The liiatiKiinitioii i-ereinonU'S were Im
pressive and interesting end were at
tended by the law-making und judicial
blanches of the date ffnvernment and
by people of prominence from every
part of the state. Men and women,
tildicans and Democrats, seemed to
Ycome from every section of the
,.ii::niotirer.lth to honor their chief ex
ecutive, and they honored him us no
oilier governor was ever before hon
ored. Party lines that were warped
r.nd twisted out of shape when Gover
nor Hastings was elected In November
were completely hidden today by a
flood of patriotism that has been swell
ing find to?.4lnx like contending waves
over this place for the past forty-eh;ht
hours, and the whole, people were ab
sorbed In the important work, business
whs si'spendid. Kmblems flouted In
Aeiierou.s folds from every house. A
l.idf hundred bands, each demanding
special attention. Idled the p.ir with
ti. lisle and the motley crowd attending
seemed to be enlarged by the conflict
ing tunes. The weather was fair. The
m: kept streets were afloat with slush,
but people who lire not accustomed to
fieranton's clean streets were entirely
content to wade through the mire in
honor of the oc casion, and the new ad
ministration. The military, civic and
political parade following immedately
after the liiautriiraton was a magnifi
cent demonstration. The glitter and
pomp of the citizen soldiery, the rivalry
of the se veral local fire companies and
the dignity of the political organiza
tion from the east and west combined
harmoniously in the successful display
und formed the most attractive parade
ever Keen here.
The Fifth, First and Kighth regi
ments, in command of General Gobin,
represented the state militia. The
PU'te College cadets from Hellefonte,
who acted as a persona', escort for
(rovermor IIuK'Ungs, were probably the
mi.t attractive fixture of the parade.

other towns s-.'ivt political clubs.

THE INAUGURAL ADDRESS,
An Impressive Exposition of Sound Policy
by tlio New Governor,
l'y the United Press.
Harrlsburg, Jan. lu. The Inaugural
address of the new governor was an
exceptionally strong und statesman
like effort, and it was listened to with
profound attention. Ho said:
Uenllcmcn of the senate and house of rep
resentatives und fellow elll.ins:
Our constitution reoulrrs ihiit the (-lili-f
executive of the commonwealth, "shall
take care that the law.) be lulthftillv exe
cuted." Having been entrusted by the
people of Pennsylvania with the-administration
of that olll.e for the next four
years, I have In your presence taken upon
myself the prescribed oath of oillee. Pro
foundly impressed with the responsibility
ol the new relation which I s.islaln to
all the people of the commonwealth, 1
ask their help lu the perfonmtnee of lnv
duties, while 1 will constunlly ri-lv upoii
the Supreme ltuier for strength and
Mot unmindful of the unprecedented
vote of conllili-m-e given by I he electors. I
should lie guilty of insincerity If 1 did not
now express my appreciation of the unu
sual honor und I should be lacking In the
qualities that belong to manly grati
tude If this did not strengthen every pur
pose of mind unil heart to the end that
the confidence prove not to lie misplaced.
At the same time I fully recognize the
truth thut honest differences of Judgment
on public questions anil candidates con
stitute one of the essential safeguards of
free government, nnd demand of the suc
cessful competitor that unqualified recog
nition of the constitutional legal rights
which is above partisanship.
Protection n l-'ixed Policy.
The recent election disclosed on the
part of the electors u gratifying nnd uim
suul desire for the intelligent discussion
and determination of principles and is
sues, und a purpose to exclude from the
euinpuit-'ii thut element of personal abuse
nnd vituperation which excites prejudice,
inflames pus.ilun and misguides the Judg
ment. The high standard set nnd main
tained by the distinguished lender of the
purty opposed to my election, has demon
strated not only the feasibility but also
the wisdom of luuklug elections record ilio
public will, freed from all Iniluences
which pervert patriotic judgment.
'i'ho people of the state nnd of the
country are now happily emerging from
a period of financial and Industrial eiu
burrasr.meut which has wroiiKlit great In
jury and distress nmong all branches of
industry and employment. Two political
revolutions have taken place within two
years that severely tested the stability
of the form of government under which
we live, l-'niin both, the country bus
come forth stronger und grander, and the
people, with mole confidence In the fu
ture of our political Institutions. A great
body of legislation which, during u con
structive growth of thirty yenis has be
come almost a part of our organic system,
was appurenlly overturned In the re
sults of a single election. Two years
later a fur mom emphatic nnd decisive
revolution of public judgment restored
the principle of American protection. It
may lie suieiy iiecuireu, as a consequence,
that the wage earning people of the
l 'niled Slntes, while willing thut the con
tentions nun competitions of sunn v nnd
demand In this country mny fix tlio wnge-
rute here, will never permit that wage
rate to be reduced by any legislation that
involves competition from those, who uro
not their political equal. While the Ameri
cun wage-rate is almost as distinctive a
feature or our mitlonnl system as our
Declaration of Independence or our flag,
mill protection lo our own ministries
sHtled conviction of our people, yet con
servative judgment win always iiemuiiil
that legislation upon this subject be of
such a character as will be Just to all sec
tions of our common country, all Indus
tries nnd occupations, mid that with
changing conilltlons, the schedules of pro
teetlve rates shall ho so mollified as to
urevent monopoly or oiinressinn of anv
cluss or our people by the power of aggre
Proper Industrial Legislation.
I venture the opinion and the hope that.
with returning confidence lis to the fu
ture, wo are gradually enlerlng upon a no
rlud of encouraging und healthy business
restoration. Willi this thought In view,
tho trend of our legislation should be In
sympathy with every effort, looking to the
ndvancemcnt of all the Industrial, mate
rial und commercial Interests within tho
corners or the stnte.
The wugo earning population of the
statu has, beyond doubt, suffered more
by reason of the Industrlul coiul tlons lust
mentioned, thun uny other portion of our
fieople. They have been halted not only
ly reduced wages, but In ninny Inslunces
by absence of opportunity to earn anv
wages. It cannot be denied thut tho hnnd
of toll, upplled to her native stores of
wealth, lias done more to mnke our coin
nionwealth tho keystone of tho federal
area, than even bur commanding geo
graphical position. Pennsylvania is tho
distinctive Industrial commonwealth. Her
wage earners should receive fguterlng
care in every lcslshitive enactment
affecting their interests. Henjamin
l-'runklln declared that tho proper
euro of Intelligent labor Is the no
blest quality In statehood. The giv
ing of fair and honest employment to
labor In equally necessary and noble.
I'onlllct between employer and employed
Is not only Injurious to both, but hurtful
to uvcrv related Interest. The great ener
gies and Industries of tho state are as
necessary to labor as labor Is to them.
Holh should be protected in their rights.
Doth should be given equal legislative
opportunity. Labor arises from necessi
ty more than from Inclination, und is sel
dom Inviting unless remunerative. Capi
tal depends upon intellectual force and di
reotion. A dollar Is a conscienceless
tiling. Of Itself It earns no Interest and
declares no dividends, and Is Incapable
of much voud or harm. Its ugieguted
power, Willi intellect ual force behind It,
Is Incalculable for good or for evil. Its
aeciimiilutlon nnd use Is the chief ambi
tion and employment or mankind. The
state that permits large aggregations of
capital to he employed should surround
the urtlllelitl person thus created with the
sumo restrictions, privileges nnd protec
tion, which It gives the individual citi
zen. The laws nffocllng each should be
just and equitable. The burden of taxa
tion should rest Justly und equitably upon
both, having due regard to every privilege,
advantage und related Interest. Neither
should l.u a target for the demagogue or
the tool of the avaricious. Wise laws
rigidly enforced are indispensable to both
us well us to the slate. Mvery man has
the right lo sell Ills labor ut his own price
und Is entitled to protection In its per
formance. Labor has the right to organ
ise for mutual protection und advantage
the same us capital: but, n-ither labor nor
capital has the rieht to combine lo pre
vent men from working ut uny price
they please, no more than capital has the
right to control or pervert the natural
channels of Industry so as to depress the
price of labor or raise thu cost of living.
1 have been constrained to dwell some
what in commonplace suggestion upon
tills subject, because In the further de
velopment of our material wealth, It Is
necessary for the prucul and dignity of the
stute, and for the preservation of the
lives and properly of her citizens that
there shall bo no recurrence of law break
ing methods to enforce a settlement of
private disputes. The slate Is concerned
that there shall be Industrial peace; that
mining, ninniifacturlng, trade and com
merce ;.hall continue without Interruption
and to tht; advuntage of nil concerned:
and 1 shall regard It ns one of the must
soli:mii obligations of my oath of ulllce to
see to It that the peace ami dignity of
tlio commonwealth be maintained and the
laws enforced and open defiance thereto
restrained promptly and at whatever
As to Capital and Labor.
While the question of the peaceful set
tlement of contentions between organized
labor und capital is almost as old as or
ganized society, yet the subject is more
important mid momentous now than ever
before. Keren t t-xpcrleiicos in this coun

If the general public could be fully in

would generally guide thu way to peace

upon the subject, out i may nun mat to

as lo the moral unil inieiiectual iievoiop

Advocates Manual Training.
When we consider that the general edu-
ciulon of the people is essential lo tho
stolidity ami perpetuity of the state, wo
muv well contemplate luriher improve
ments 111 our free school system. The
ordinury township or village school,
while filling a most useful place, does,
to some extent fall in affording
tho means necessary to enable boys
nnd girls to til themselves into use
ful places when every branch of em
ployment seems lo be already over-
rowoeii. e tire iivuil' in wnai is oiien
called an age of Invci.lion. Human labor
lias been abridged and human comfort
enlarged by American Ingenuity as up
plied lo mechanical principles, and that to
greater mm more proiuunie exit-in loan
111 any other country or period of time.
And vet the trend of free educatlun lias
been jsui h i to give very little promi
nence lo Industrial training, to tho edu-
Uion that prepares t lie rising generation
to earn a living by the joint use ot bead
nnd hand. A large percentage of the pat
rons of our public schools go from the
hool bouse lino inn uusmess oi earn
ing a livelihood. The province of tho
free school Is and should be to assist
them ill preparing for whatever lawful
employment Inclination or necessity may
bring 'to them. There Is large demand for
In. alien ot tins Kinu ami our present
school system can readily be expanded
to still greater useruliicss in ims direc
tion. I hope the time Is not distant when
our great slate, irom ine iiiiiinuance oi
her wealth, will provide tlirotigli ncr
hool syst"m the opportunity to every
boy or girl within her borders lo obtain
thorough preparation 'or any calling or
profession, as free from cost in the higher
brunches as the rudiments of un education
mny now be obtulncd In our township
schools. When wo take Into considera
tion the higher institutions oi learning
that nuw depend largely upon the t-tate
for support and dcvolopm-mt, the ad
ditional cost of such educational expan
sion would not be a serious impediment.
Need of (iood Heads.
I'he people of the slate hnve manifested
much interest In the subject of improve

Unit the growing sentiment In this regard
will soon eventuate In Intelligent hivc-dl-

general condition of our roads throughout
l lie state indicates met iiipiic sentiment
has not favored a tax levy for road pur-
noses sn l elently Huge to construct und
maintain the best roadways, evenlf the
money were most iiiieiiigeiiuy und eco

lurgelv of local sentiment. After a
somewhat painstaking study of the sub
ject, 1 um Inclined to suggest thut, recog
nizing the right of local government,
where the people of township or eounly
desire better roads, the state should un

News of the President's Action Spreads
Like Wildfire Throughout tho City.
Causes Which Led to the Ucsignu
tion -Threatened Kc volution.
By tho United Tress. v'
Purls, Jan. 1"). M. Cnsinilr Perier has
resigned the office of president of
France. He announced his resignation
this evening nt a specially summoned
meeUng of the cabinet, having pre
viously informed M. Chullemol-Lacuur,
the president of the senate, of his In
ability to solve the problem presented
by the resignation of Premier Dttpuy.
The news of thu president's resigna
tion spread like wildfire throughout
Paris, and was received everywhere
with consternation amounting almost
to paralysis. In the newspaper olllces
the first report was considered absurd,
but was soon confirmed. Almost simul
taneously crowds began gathering In
front of the newspaper olllces und in the
public places Inquiring for further par
ticulars and ilii-cussln;; the situation.
Th3 following oMIeial communication,
dictated or written by M. Casimir
Perier, was made public before mid
night: "The president of the republic, has
taken a resolution to resign his of
ficial functions. Yesterday's proceed
ings und vote in the chamber of depu
ties are, in his eyes, but secondary in
cidents of the struggle that has begun
against parliamentary regime and pub
lic liberty. He had hoped that tho pres
ident of the republic, being unprovided
with means of action, would remain
outside the lilies of party struggles,
and that the political confidence of all
parties would give him the necessary
force and authority. He had hoped
that those, who, in spite of himself,
had placed him In a position where he
cannot defend himself, would under
take the defence of the first magistrate
of the state. He has requested the
ministers to withdraw their resigna
tions provisionally in order to ussume
the regular transmission of Ills powers
to his successor.
"Mnmslcur Charles Dupuy, president
of the council, lias Informed the presi

M. Oaisimir Pooler's reference In his

At the Annual Meeting of l.cliigli Valley
Stockholders Confidence in the Present
.Management Was I vinccd.
By the United Press.
Philadelphia, Jan. 13. Tlv nuptial
meeting of the Lehigh Valley lliil
road company was 'held here today m
Music Hall and all the business before
U was disposed of, with the excep
tion of the counting of the nbs'l; votes
cast, jind the result of this will he an
nounced tomorrow, when the meeting
will be re-oonvened for that purpose.
The re-convening of the meeting will be
little more than a matter of form, as
t'h pivstmt management will b; re
elected. About l.UOO persons were pres
ent at the meeting today, and the dis
satisfied stockholders, who have op
posed the prcsont management, were
on hand with queries regarding the
conduct of the business or the fond nnd
the introduction or resolutions looking
to an investigation or the manage
ment's course. The secretary of the
company, John 11. l-inshawe, began
the reading of the annual l i port, but It
was Ram dispensed Willi, as it lias al
ready been published.
Obji-etor William K. Ixiekwnod Intro
duced his u vim 1 resolutions for the tvp
pointmi nt of committees to Investigate
the iaiTnlt'8 of the company, hut they
were promptly shoved on one side by
the meeting. John M. Hutchinson and
Kvans It. Dick, who have been the
head .nnd front of the opposition to the
present management, made statements
resarding what they cajled Inelliclency
with which the affairs of the company
had been conducted, and also Intro
duced resolutions or Investigation.
Their resolutions were cither lost or re
ferred to the incoming management.
Isaac N. Bolls, who Is allied with tho
oppositions to the Wilbur manage
ment, offered a resolution to be voted
for by the stockholders as they deposit
their iballots for president and direc
tors, providing that a committee of live
shareholders who are not connected
with any committee opposed to the re
election of, the. present officers, be ap
pointed by the chairman to examine
into the condition of ths property.
A resolution approving of the action
of the board of directors, us contained
In their report and ratifying all con
trniets made by them, was can-led.
John M. Hutchinson (submitted a rewo
non. iwli'Ich was ladoptod, statins that

The opposition ticket contained only
the names or Messrs. Wharton, Mc

being done, It tls said, merely to show
the comparative strength of the untl

Washington, Jan. 15. Announcement
Is officially made through the medium
of a friendly Pittsburg paper, the Com
mercial-Gazette, that the attempts of
the peacemakers to bring about a recon
ciliation between Senator Quay and
David Martin have failed. After care
fully considering the situation und re
ceiving reports from his friends
throughout the state, Senator Quay
sent this brief but emphatic message to
to the would-be peacemakers:
"There can be no reconciliation be
tween Mr. Martin and myself. Having
betrayed me once, I could never re
pose any trust in him again."
And this is the message that It. R.
Quay also bore to Philadelphia yester
day to Senator Penrose, Magistrate
Durham and the other Quay leaders in
that city. It was the senator's ulti
matum and was not issued until he had
given it live days' careful considera
tion. And from now on he Intends to
work vigorously until he has unhorsed
Mr. Martin and given the leadership In
that city to some one who can be
In fact, the contest is now on in Phil
adelphia; the first test of strength' will
be over the organization of the city
committee. The loyal followers of the
Junior senator have been placed in
control of his forces in each of the
wards In the city where the present
leader has followed the banner of Mr.
Martin. The main test of strength will
come over the election of delegates to
the next state convention. Primaries
will be held In all the wards, and the
tjuay men seem confident of securing a

!s not to lie ullowed to endanger the
chances for the election of Mr. War
wick to be mayor. After a careful In
vestigation Senator Quay and his
friends have become satisfied that Mr.
Warwick had no hand in Ills betrayal
by Mr. Martin. On the contrary, they
are confident that Mr. Warwick waa
only selected for the nomination after
Mr. .Martin and the combine found 'Uhat
t'hey could not nominate Graham.
Therefore Senator Penrose and M.i.gis
trat Durham are to see to St , that Mr.
Warwick loses no votes from the Quay
element. In return for this Warwick
has been asked not to allow the pat
roiMge of his office to be used solely t-j
keep Mr. Martin iln control. A strict
neutrality of his employes In the com
ing Quay-Mart.! n contests Is all that
Senator Quay desires, tund it Is hinted
that Mr. Warwick has promised to en
force an obedience to It.
One of rhe queer features ot this con
troversy is Mr. Martin's action. While
disavowing any ilnteiitlons to beira
Senator Quay and tinsistiiig Unit tin
senator would approve of his (Martin's)
course when he knew all the facts, Mr.
Mantln ihas made no attempt to reveal
all the facts to the -senator, and further
more has made no direct attempt to ef
fect a reconciliation. Senator Quay ad
mills that he has recolved mo message,
oitiitir verbal or written, from his for
mer right-bower, and this naturally
made him more certain that Mr. Mar
tin sold him out d.-llborute-ly and with
the Intention of setting up an estab
lishment (or machine) of his own.
The general impression here today Is
that with ia free field 'and no .favor the
contests will bo deolded iln favor ot
Senator Quay, especially If Mr. War
wick will see to it th;iit the city um
ployes keep bauds off.
