Inauguration In Washington Suc
cess in Every Way
Multitude in Capital Cheer Country's
New Leaders Soldiers, Militia Men,
MaroMng Clubs In Great Parade.
Washington, March 4. Woodrow
Wilson Is president of the United
States. Followed by the presidential
salute of 101 guns and cheering of the
greatest throng ever gathered In
Washington, he was sworn In today
shortly after noon. The Inaugural ad
dress which followed was one of tho
shortest on record, but the parade was
not. DespKe the demand for demo
cratic simplicity, this pageant was one
of the longest and niont Imposing that
ever marched In honor of a new oc
cupant of the White House.
Following his trip from Princeton to
Washington yesterday, accompanied
by 1,000 Princeton students, his recep
tion at tho Uuion station by a com
mittee of prominent citizens headed
by Thomas Nelson Page, the author;
his entertainment by members of the
Wlson and kindred families from all
ovef the land at the Shoreham and the
big reception and smoker given in his
honor by Princeton alumni at the New
Wlllard, all of which occurred yester
day, Mr. Wilson appeared this morn
ing at the Shoreham, apparently none
the worse for that crowded day, to
i 'ie the supreme event and triumph of
his life.
At about half past 10 Mr. Wilson
was waited on at the Shoreham by
members of the congressional commit
tee and escorted to the White House,
where he was greeted by President
Taft, and shortly thereafter the presi
dent and president to be entered a
carriage for the trip to the capitol,
Mr. Taft seated upon the right hand
and Mr. Wilson on the left. The president-elect
had as a guard of honor the
Kssex troop of Newark, N. J.
Marshall Also Had Escort.
Vice President Marshall, who had
also been escorted from the Shoreham
to the White House, followed In an
other carriage. Because of the vacan
cy In the oillce priod to his qualifying
he rode with members of the commit
tee, the event being a sad reminder to
many of the death of Vice President
Sherman. Mr. Marshall's guard of
honor was the Culver Black Horse
troop of Indiana. This is the first
time a vice president has had such a
guard In an inaugural ceremony, and
the Innovation Is understood to have
been due to the personal request of
President Wilson. Mrs. Wilson and
Mrs. Marshall did not ride in the In
augural procession, but the first lady
of the laud and her three charming
daughters and the wife of the vice
president were escorted to the capuoi
by a special military aid.
Arrived at the capitol building
President Tft and Mr. Wilson pro
ceeded at once to the president's room,
where Mr. Taft busied himself during
the brief remainder of his term by
signing bills passed In the last hours
of congress. Mr. Marshall repaired to
the vice president's room to await the
moment of taking the oath of office.
Meanwhile the senate chamber pre
sented an animated scene, for today
it held not only the members of the
highest legislative body in the land,
but the supreme court of the United
States, the diplomatic corps, members
of the house of representatives, dis
tinguished officials of the government
and a gallery brilliant with the pres
ence of the beauty and distinction of
the land.
An Imposing Procession. "'
The ancient ceremony of turning
back the clock having been attended
to In due form, at exactly 12 by this
amended timepiece appeared the presi
dent and .president-elect of the United
State3 escorted by the honorable com
mittee to the chief seats in front of
tho presiding officer's desk. Thomas
H. Marshall was then sworn in by the
president pro tern, of the senate, after
which there was prayer by the chap
lain, the new vice president delivered
a brief Inaugural address and gave the
oath to the new members of the sen
ate, and the stately procession was
ready to move to the temporary stand
built over the east portico of the cap
Those who have never witnessed
this imposing array of United States
officials and representatives of all tho
nations of the earth move through the
rotunda and corridors of the nation's
apitol have missed the most imprs
sive formal spectacle known to the re
public. Headed by the sergeant-at-arras of
the house, followed by the marshal
of the supreme court and the marshal
of the District of Columbia, the pro
cession moved In the following order:
Chief Justice White and the eight as
sociate Justices of the;. United States
supreme court, the committee on ar
rangements, the president and president-elect,
the ambassadors and min
isters from foreign nations in all their
regalia of office, the vice president and
former vice presidents, the president
pro tern, of the senate, senators and
former senators, the speaker and
clerk of the house, retiring members
nd members-elect of the house, heads
of executive departments of the gov
ernment, governors of states and ter
ritories, Admiral Dewey, head of the
President and Vice President
ol the United States
navy; Major General Leonard Wood,
head of the army; officers of the army
and navy who have received the
thanks of congress and all other per
sons who have been admitted to the
floor of the senate, followed by the
occupants of the senate gallery headed
by members of the diplomatic corps.
Administering the Oath.
All this does not require much space
In the telling, but when it Is reflected
that some of these divisions represent
ed hundreds of people and that they
included all the chief officials of the
United States government of all de
partments, the accredited delegates
from all foreign nations and some of
the most distingulshetfftiB.and wo
men in private life .konjeN-realization
may be had of what it all meant.
Arrived at the - temporary stand
where hundreds of people were already
seated and tens of thousands more
were banked in front of the stand, the
high dignitaries took the places allot
ted to them and prepared to solemnize
the chief event of the day.
. for the first time Chief Justice Ed
ward D. White administered the oath,
bis predecessor, Chief Justice Mel
ville W. Fuller, having officiated at
the last six public inaugurations. In
a firm voice the president-elect re
peated after the venerable chief jus
tice the oath, bowing to kiss the Bible
at Its close. The boom of cannon and
the cheers of the mighty concourse
announced the fact that William How
ard Taft was now a private citizen.
The inaugural address was delivered
in the easy manner and full voice for
which President Wilson is already fa
mous, but the crowd was so enormous
that only those nearest the platform
could hear. These cheered the telling
points, especially the brief reference
to the tariff and the striking sentences
such as "our work Is a work of res
toration," "Justice and only justice
shall always be our motto" and "this
Is not a day of triumph; it is a day
of dedication." .Many complimentary
references were made to the lofty tone
of the address. In its brevity, pithi
ness and high moral plane it is likened
to the inaugural addresses of Lincoln.
In the Journey back to the White
House President Wilson and Mr. Taft
exchanged places in the first carriage,
the new president now on the right
hand and the ex-president on the left.
Wilson was cheered almost continu
ously throughout the mile of Pennsyl
vania avenue extending between the
capitol and the treasury building. At
the White House luncheon was served
to the presidential and vice presi
dential parties.
Mr. Taft, whose treatment of his
successor throughout the day had been
the soul of courtesy and good feeling,
excused himself soon after the lunch
eon to take the train for Augusta, Ga.,
hre he will rest for several weeks
before moving to bis new home in
New Haven, where he is to be Kent
professor of law at Yale.
The reviewing stand In front of the
White House, to which the presiden
tial party then repaired, seats about
1,500 persons and is crowded with
friends and relatives of the new presi
dent and vice president. The stand
is on the general design of the home
of the patron saints of democracy,
Vhomas Jefferson, just as the stand
across the way In Lafayette park is
after the plan of Washington's home
at Mount Vernon. Huge Mrs and other
evergreen trees are placed about the
stands and the court of honor is bril
liant with the inaugural colors, green
and white. These colors dominate
throughout the entire city.
A Model For Other Nations.
The gigantic parade is now under
way. The first division, led by the
famous Marine band, is already pass
ing the court of honor. As this band
approached the president's stand it
broke out in the strains of "Hall to
the Chief" amid the cheering of the
assembled thousands. The first pa
rade division consists of some of the
finest marching regiments of the Unit
ed States army and navy and the West
Point and Annapolis cadets, perhaps
the best drilled body of young men in
the world. General Leonard Wood's
boast that he would make this section
of the pageant a "model for other na
tions" has certainly been realized.
The scene along Pennsylvania ave
nue Is one never to be forgotten.
Practically every Inch of space on
both sides of the great thoroughfare
is occupied. The temporary stands,
the sidewalks, the cross Btreets back
for a long distance, the windows of
every building along the route anil
even the trees and housetops are alive
with humanity. The decorations, not
only of this street but of the whole
"In of march and in a lesser degree of
the entire city, have never been more
effective. Great arches and festoons
span the avenue at frequent Intervals
Those when lighted at night will make
of Pennsylvania avenue a veritable
fairyland, and with the garlands of
green and white and the display of the
national colors the effect will be like
that of day.
By conservative estimates there are
a quarter of a million visitors in Wash
Ington today and almost an equal mi in
t" of the residents of the city who
have also turned out to see the show
The suffragists who marched over the
same ground yesterday are still in the
city and are conspicuous in the crowds
with their yellow banners bearing the
legend of "Votes For Women."
It is estimated that the parade will
last till 6 o'clock or later. Following
the regular army and navy and cadet
division comes the national guard
from the various states, headed in
many Instances by the governor and
his staff. There are more than 20,000
marchers in this division alone. The
entire national guard of New Jersey
Is out in honor of the first Jerseyman
to become president of the United
States. Virginia, the new president's
birthplace, and Georgia, the native
state of Mrs. Wilson, are also repre
sented by thousands ot troops, while
Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland
and other nearby states swell the
great marching columns.
The third division is made up of the
Grand Army of the Republic, Spanish
War Veterans and other patriotic or
ganizations. The old soldiers, who
hold an honored place In every inau
gural procession, are growing fewer
each four years, and there were not a
few suspicious lumps in the throats of
those who cheered them today, while
eyes grew blurred while looking on.
The last division consists of politi
cal and civic organizations. In it are
marching clubs from all parts of the
Ma3rity Report ot Pujo Probers
Given to House
The Pujo committee's report and
two bills embodying most of its radical
and comprehensive recommendations
were introduced in the house. All
seven of the Democratic members
signed the Democratic report. Two
minority reports were filed.
The bills if enacted Into law will
not only revolutionize the great bank
ing systems of the country, but will
work far reaching changes In the
management of the New York stock
exchange and clearing houses through
out the United States. The committee
tccepted all of the suggestions made
by Samuel Untermyer, its counsel.
The committee says it has found
the existence of a money trust as de
fined under the resolution which au
thorized the investigation.
The money power is pyramided on
J. P. Morgan & Co. and allied Inter
ests through groups of bankers iu Bos.
ton, Philadelphia'and Chicago.
Webb Liquor Bill Law.
The Webb liquor bill, prohibiting the
shipment of liquor into dry states, was
repassed in the senate over President
Taft's veto within two hours from the
time Taft's disapproval was received.
A short debate, in which the advo
cates of the bill voted down a motion
to postpone action and in which they
reaffirmed their belief that the nieas
tire Is constitutional, ended with the
repassage of the bill by the large ma
jority of 63 to 11. The bmiss also
repassed the measure over the veto.
Washington Sees Most Brilliant
Pageant ot Suffragettes j
Fully 7,000 Women Brave Chilling At
mosphere in Capital to Impress on
Country That They Want to Vote.
Fully meeting all the advance
claims 7,000 women, accompanied by
dozens of brass bands and floats,
swept down Pennsylvania avenue in
Washington in one of the most bril
liiUit and Impressive pageants Wash
ington has ever witnessed. The
belo freezing temperature did uol
diminish in the least degree the en
thusiasm ot the equal suffrage march
ers. Pennsylvania avenue was crowded
to Its utmost capacity by the inau
gural crowd and the suffragette host
was cheered repeatedly. The novelties
furnished by the parade will be suf
ficient to keep those fortunate enough
to witness the pageant talking for
many moon.i.
The parade was headed by officers
of the National American Woman Suf
frage association including Dr. Anna
floward Shaw, president.
Mrs. Richard Coke Burleson was the
grand marshal of the parade and Miss
Inez MUholland of New York its
herald. Sections of the parade repre
sented the progress and meaning of
the suffrage movement. The first sec
tion typified the "worldwide movement
for woman suffrage," and was headed
by Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt, presi
dent of the International Suffrage- al
liance. Women from all countries
where suffrage prevails marched in
this section.
The second section represented
"seventy-live years' struggle for free
dom, or justice conquering prejudice
and was exemplified In a series o
floats piloted by Mrs. Harvey W,
Wiley, Miss Grace Ross, Miss Kath
erine Hitchcock, Miss Hazel Robert
and a mounted brigade of suffrage wo
The third section was to portray the
idea that "man and women make the
state; man alone rules the state
Floats here revealed woman in the
field, the farm, the home, in patriotic
service, In education, medicine, law
labor, government and other fields of
"The appeal of business and the
professions," was the motto of tho
fourth section; the "appeal of states,'
that of the sixth section. The fifth
section comprised ununiformed women
marchers and the seventh section con
sisted of delegations from states
where suffrage has been wholly or
partly granted.
Among the men who marched in the
parade were Congressman Richmond
Pearson Hobson, hero of the Merri
niac; Senator-elect Shafroth of Colo
rado and Representative K. R. Taylor
of Colorado.

Vote in the House Encourages
Local Option People
Compared With Other Session Vet
of 121 to 83 This Year Shows That
Liquor Adherents Are Not Gaining.
Kncouraged by their showing in the
house, although the Rockwell local op
tion bill was defeated on second read
ing, 83 to 121, the anti-liquor people
propose to continue their fight in the
Pennsylvania legislature.
The Anti-Saloon league proposes to
Introduce a bill similar to those of
19011 and 1911. Also it intends to pre.
sent other bills aimed to harrass the
liquor Interests. At the same time It
will make plans for the election of rep
resentatives in 1914 who will favor
their bill, declaring the purpose In
placing numerous anti-liquor bills be
fore the present session is to get the
members on record as much as pos
sible on all liquor legislation with a
view of securing campaign material.
The vote on the Rockwell bill
showed a gain for the local optlonlsts
over that of two years ago. In 1909
the fight against the bill was made
on second reading, the vote being 66
for and 137 against it. In 1911 the
fight came to place a negatived local
option bill on the calendar. This was
defeated by a vote of 76 to 121. The
liquor men have not gained a single
vote In two years.
In neither the election of last Tall
nor the primaries of April, 1912, was
local option made an issue in many
of the districts of the state. Many
of the men who voted for the legis
lation were not pledged one way or
the other on the subject, but they
recognized the fairness of the proposi
tion. The local option light was not mada
a party issue. Members of all parties
voted for and against the bill. On the
Democratic side twenty, members
voted Tor the bill, thirty-five against
it and one did not vote.
The second effort to legalize Sun
day baseball in Pennsylvania was de
feated In the house by a most de
cisive vote. The test came when Rep
resentative Wiltbank moved to have
his bill put on the calendar despite
the negative recommendation of the
law and order committee.
