"No," mi M Mr. McKcnucj In re
sponse to n question; "no, wo do not
line our century-old lllblc for tho
swearing In of President, but It of
ten happens that the Clerk supplies u
now hook for the occaslnu. It la the
Intention that the man who takes tho
oath of office should have tho volume
as a keepsake, and It generally trail
iplrcs that his family. If not himself,
set much store by It. Not always,
however, nor even In n majority of
cases, arc wp called upon to supply a
new book, for It frequently happeiiK
that the President or some member
of his family Is the owner of wimo
treasured Miluinu of the Scriptures,
which It is desired thnt he should use
upon this sacted and Important occa
sion. "This was the case when Mr. Cleve
land was Inaugurated, lie wns the
owner of u small Wide, not longei
than your hand, and which apparently
had seen much usage. Ills mother had
presented It to him when he was a
boy, nnd he had treasured It cut
since. When ho was consulted about
taking Ihe oath, when first Inaugu
rated as President, he stated thnt ho
desired his mother's present should
ho used for this purpose. When the
oath was administered to him at tho
beginning of his second administra
tion, tho same volume, which on this
occasion had been hunted nut by Mrs.
Cleveland, was ugaln brought forward
and presented as the one upon which
her husband should Vinke his pledges
"Quite In contrast with this llttK
volume was the ono used In admin
istering tho oath to Mr McKlnley.

med In gold and stored In a much or
namented box. I remember very well
that I was quite fagged out from car
rying It to the Senate chamber and
from that chamber to tho platform In
fiont of thu Capitol. After tho Illblo
had been used for this purpoao I turn
ed It over to the President, but, not
withstanding ho had already received
It, tho donors uftcrwards called ut thu
Whltn llouso and presented It with
formal speeches, to which Mr. McKIti
ley made appropriate reply.
"President Roosevelt was sworn In
on u Hlblo which had been used for
the samo purposo whoti he was limn
gurated Governor of New York. Wo
had bought n Illblo for his Inaugura

RoomvcR that tho preferred tho use

"Wo still have, on hand the Mblu,
bought for that occasion, but wo shall
not use It for Mr. Taft, Unless ho
liirnlshes it book himself wo will gel
n iiuw ono and will keep tho Roose
vclt Illblo on hand for emergencies,
such for Instance, as occurred when
Arthur took onlli of office In this city.
He had been sworn In Now York, but
It was suddenly decided thnt It would
bu safer to again ndmlnlstcr tho oath
In Washington. Accordingly Chief
.liistlce Walto and about twenty other
people of prominence wero called very
suddenly together In the Vlco-Prosl-dent's
room ut tho Capitol, I had to
send uptown for n book, and had but
n few minutes In which to execute tho
rommlsrlou I succeeded, however, In
gutting tho book Jn time, for the cere
mony and was ono of tho fuw present
when Mr. Garfield's successor wa.s
Initiated Into his high omco.
