The "General Deficiency" bill the
last of the big, supply bills, passed the
Senate Saturday, thus clearing the decks
for adjournment: the credentials of W.
A. Clark of Montana were read and
placed on file and some small bills passed
In the House the galleries were crowd
ed and a dozen unimportant bills were
passed, Saturday, and the House took a
recess until 2 P. M. of Sunday, when it
reconvened for an all night session the
theory being that the session of Mar. 2
continued until noon of Mar. 4, for the
minute Congress discovers that it is
March 4 the presiding officer must de
clare a sine-die adjournment. In par
liamentary usage a day lasts from noon
to noon, unless, perchance, the sittings
should extend beyond the noon hoar.
Then the day lasts as long as Congress
chooses Twenty-four years ago, during
the continuance of the disputed election

March 2 was still in existence when all
the events chronicled therein took place,
the calendar calculation made the time
March 4.
Special trains bearing visitors began
arriving early that morning, and before
evening half a dozen Governors and
the members of their staffs were in town.
Some of tbs trains also brought military
bodies. Gov. Roosevelt and family ar
rived and went to the home of his sister
Mrs. Commander Clowes. The Porto
Rican battalion landed at Norfolk and
reached Washington late Saturday
The vast court of the Pension Build
ing was decorated with flowers, plants
and bunting and was ready for the In
augural ball and all arrangements for
the great parade on Monday w ere being
At 3 o'clock Monday morning Con
gress had passed all the appropriation
bills except the river and harbor and
sundry civil bills. Conference reports
npon them had been rejected in both
House and Senate and both houses were
still in session.
In the Senate Mr. Carter, of Mon
tana. began talking on the River and
Harbor bill, and kept on talking till
near noon, or till preparations for the
Inaugural began. He talked for thirteen
hours, and killed the bill. During the
morning a vote of thanks was given
Speaker Henderson to which he re
sponded, and then the Hon.se adjourned,
sine die and flocked over to the Senate
chamber to see the Inaugural ceremonies
the re.
Before noon the Senate chamber was
packed with Senators, Governors, Army
and Navy officers, foreign Ambassa
dors, etc., and the galleries with women
of all the civilized nations of the earth,
in flowing robes and glittering diamonds.
Vice President Roosevelt entered and
was sworn in by Senator Frye and then
the President, who had been sitting in
one of the small rooms, signing bills en
tered and the procession, headed by the
President and Chief Justice, formed and
marched out npon the platform, where
McKinley took the oath of office and
made his address during a drenching
rain. The day had opened bright and
fair, but towards noon it beiran raining
and rained the rest of the day. A
crowd of about forty thousand people
stood in the rain around the Capitol to
see the President take the oatb from the
Chief Justice and afterwards along
Penn'a avenue to see the military pa
After making his address, McKinley
aud Roosevelt entered a carriage and
headed the procession of carriages and
military organizations down Penn
sylvania avenue, to the White House,
when the President and his party en
tered the stand erected there, aud re
viewed the procession.
That night everybody (who had a
ticket) went to the great ball in the
Pension building, there were some fire
works at the Monument and the day
was over.
"The feature of national significance
in the parade and festivities of the day
is the forecast of national policy and ex
ecutive purpose given in the Inaugural
address. The President's second in
augural address is therefore the really
important part of the occasion for the
people at largo. President McKinley
opened his second inangnral by con
trasting the condition of the currency
question four years ago with that of the
present, and dwelling on the revival of
Industry, tho improved stato of the
revenues aud the marked reversal of
all the features which characterized the
finances and industry of tho Nation
when his first term began. This is a
legitimate cause for pride and congrat
ulation. It constitutes the strength of
the Administration and vas the factor
which above all others determined the
last election.
Passing from this topic the Presi
dent took np the other great public
question, the relation of the United
States with Cuba and the Philippines
His refrence to the attitude of those op
posing the Republican policy might
have been fairer in the statement of
their position: but this political fault
will be generally overlooked in view of
the repeated determination to make
good the pledge with regard to Cuba
and to gi%*e the Philippines "self-gov
ernment as fast as they can be made
ready for it." The surest way to dis
arm opposition and to crown the policy
of tho Administration with the unani
mous public approval is to make good
those words. The President is now
clothed with power to carry oat these
purposes. He has heretofore been lim
ited by the theory that he was acting
only as Cominander-in-Cbief in holding
the posessions by military occupancy.
But having now received uu extra
I ordinary grant of power for the es
| tablishment of government in the is
j lands the promise* thus niaile can be
i fulfilled.
. j If President McKinley's second ad
' ministration carries out these purposes
fnlly and successfully it will record
even a greater triumph than the first.

A Most Shainetul Record.
Philadelphia Ledger.
Every argument advanced during the
recent campsign by those who opposed
the election of Quay legislators, has
been sustained by the logic of events.
Mr. Quay's re-election to the United
States Senate was antagonized not so
much on personal grounds as because of
the political machine whose fortunes
were involved in his success. It was
contended that Quayism meant bad
government, excessive taxation, ex
travagant appropriations, the multipli
cation of useless offices, the promotion
of jobs and the putting aside of all gen
uine reforms. When the election re
turns came in the people believed that
they had triumphed over the ring; that
the Senate was at least a tie, and that
the House had a working majority of
Independent Republicans and Demo
crats. But the resources of the machine
proved too powerful, and, by pressure
and persuasion, a sufficient nnmber ot
Anti-Qnavites was procured to give the
ring organization control of both
branches of the General Assembly.
Since the election of Mr. Quay to the
Senate not a legislative day has passed
that has not witnessed an exhibition of
the characteristic indifference of the
machine to public opinion and popular
interests. Despite the wishes of the
judges and the sentiment of the com
munity. a bill has been passed for an
unnecessary court in Philadelphia. An
other bill has passed that is even more
vicious, depriving the dirtrict attorney
of the right to stand aside jurors under
certain circumstances.
Then there is the 'ripper' act, passed
yesterday, to give the Quayites control
of Pittsburg and other cities. Many ob
jectionable measures have been intro
duced by members of the majority and
their Democratic .allies. Tfie machine
proposes to abolish the buildings com
mission and turn the City hall over to
Mayor Ashbridge. The commission is
entitled to no sympathy whatever, and
were the conditions other than they are
the "Ledger" would cordiallv indorse
the movement, but the present propo
sition means from the frying pan into
tire. Senator Stiles, one of the Quay
Demociats, has offered . two very ob
jectionable bills, one to dam the Dele
ware river, which would incidentally
impair the shad industry, and another
to legalize race track gam hlim? in every
county in Pennsj-lvania. Representa
tive Voorhees advocates an amendment
to the law relating to the licensing of
detectives, which would enibaraf-s the
Law and Order society in its efforts to
close up disorderly resorts, many of
ator Fox has a bill for a State Capitol
commission to spend $0,000,000. Senator
Muehlbronner wants SIO,OOO appropriat
ed to give an unlimited number of
favored workers in Philadelphia and
Pittsburg jobs as inspectors of weights
and measures Representative Mc-
Glathorty has a little scheme for six ex
aminers of engineers, at $1,200 per an
num each, and the exaction of fees from
applicants for license.
Representative Beacom proposes to
take the disposal of liquor license from
the courts and entrust the same to excise
boards. Senator Focht wants to in
crease the evils of the existing ballot
law by perpetuating the party column,
denying to independent organizations
the right of equality or representation,
and forbidding non-partisan nominut
ions. In addition to these there are
bills requiring cities to buy up elect;-;-
light plants before attempting munici
pal lighting; to create new and unneces
sary counties; to impose burdensome
mercantile taxes; to oppress building
associations and impair existing
lation, and sundry measure-! to provide
more places for tax-eaters.
On Wednesday was witnessed the
spectacle of the passage by the Senate
of an unjustifiable bill to interfere with
the courts in their oversight of trustees
This scheme was vigorously objected to
but as it had the machine stamp it was
rnshed through, the spokesman content
ing hims-lf by saying that if the courts
were against the bill it was because
they did not want th"ir priyileges cur
tailed. On the same day the press re
ported the passage by the House of fee
bill, pretending to lop off emoluments
forbidden by the con-citation, but itself
clearly unconstitutional in form.
In both branches at Earrisburg ther in
only a semblance of debate. The minor
ity makes an effort to discuss disrep
utable bills OD passage, but is gauged
wherever possible by calls for the pre
vious question, and the majority votes
according to the cue given by the
machine leaders.
Everything goes in ihe Senate that is
vouched for by Grady or Scott, and no
bill introduced by an anti-Qn iyite ha
any show of passage, unless an in
fluential member of the majority agrees
to foster it. 11l the House the proceed
ing is much the .-.ame. About the
only machine measure to meet with a
set back was that to muzzle the press
Some of the Quayites are in the jnvs
paper business themselves, and objected
to being hoisted by their own petard.
"This is a conservative statement of
the record of the Pennsylvania Legis
lature to date ou bills that itre political
or quasi-political. Not one single
measure in the interest of political re
form has been suffered to leave the com
mittee room with a favorable report.
To clinch machine control and make it
binding, the State has a Governor who
is an adherent of Senator Quay. The
moral of all this we leaye to the re
flection of our readers.
