HIS FIRST ADDRESS.
President Harrison's Inaugural
Words to tho Republic,
Bis Hopeful Outlook for the Second Cen
tury of the Ration.
Jinny Topics Briefly Touched Up by tho
New Republican Chief Mngistrnte.
(ricui. to tbk svxHtno woatn.1
WAsiitKOToit. I). C. , March 4. Ocn. Harrison's
inaugural address was delivered to-day as fol
lows: There is no constitutional or legal rcqulremon
that the President dull tako the oath or offlco in
the presence of the people. But tlicro is so
manifest an appropriateness in the pnblloindnc
tion to oflice of the Chief nxecutive Officer of
tho nation that from the beginning of the Gov
ernment the people, to whose scrvlco tho ofllcial
oath consecrates an officer, have been called to
witness the solemn ceremonial.
Tho oath taken in thr presence of the people
becomes a mutual covenant. The officer cove
nants to serve the wholo body of tho peoplo by a
faithful execution of the laws, so that they may
be an unfailing defenao and security of those
who respect and observe them, and that neither
wealth, station nor power of combinations shall
be able to evade their just penalties, or to
wrest them from a beneficent public purpose to
serve the ends of cruelty or selfishness.
Mr promise is spoken, yours unspoken, hut
not less real and solemn. This people of every
Btate have here their representatives. Hurely
I do not misinterpret tho spirit of tho occasion
when 1 assnme that the whole body of the Peo
ple covenant with me and with each other, to
day, to support and defend the Constitution
and tho Union of Htates, to yield willing obe
dienco to all laws, and each to every other citi
zen his equal civil and political rights.
Entering tuns solemnly into a covenant with
each other, wo may reverently invoke and con
fidently expect tbe favor and help of Almighty
God, that he will give to mo wisdom, strength
and fidelity, and to our ieoplo a spirit of frater
nity and a love of righteousness and peace.
This occasion derives pcculiur interest from
tho fact that tho Presidential term which begins
this day is tho twenty-sixth under our Constitu
tion. The first inauguration of President Washing
ton took place In New York, where Congress was
then sitting, on the notii day of April, 17NI),
having been deferred by reason of delays at
tending tbe organization of Congress and the
canvass of the electoral vote.
Onr people have already worthily observed the
centennial of the Declaration of Independence,
of tho battle of Yorktown and of the adoption of
the Constitution, and they will shortly celebrate
in Mew York the institution of tho second great
department of our constitutional scheme of gov
ernment. When the centennial of the Institution of the
Judicial Department by tho organization of tho
(Supreme Court shall have been suitably ob
served, as I tnist it will be. our nation vlll have
fully entered Its second century.
nZOINNINO A KXW OENTDnr.
I will not attempt to note the marvellous and,
in gieat part, happy rontiast between our
country as it steps over tho tin oshhold into its
second century of organized existence- under the
Constitution and that weak but wisely ordered
young nation that looked undauntedly down
the first century, when all its jears- stretohed
out before it.
Our peoplo will not fall at this time to recall
the incidents which accompanied tho institution
of the Government undor the Constitution or to
find Inspiration and guidance In tho teachings
and example of Washington and his great asso
ciates, and hopo and courago In the contrast
which thirty-eight populous and prosperous
Htates olTer to the thirteen States, weak In every
thing except courage and love of liberty, that
then fringed our Atlantlo seaboard.
The Territory of Dakota has now a population
greater than any of the original Rtatos, except
Virginia, and greater than the aggregate of fivo
of the smaller Htates in 1700.
The centre of population, when our National
Capital was located, was east of Baltimore, aud
it was argued bv many well-informed persons
that it would move eastward rather than west
ward. Yet in 1 SK0 it was found to bo near Cin
cinnati, and the new census about to be taken
will show another strldo to the westward.
That which was the body has come to be only
the rich frlngo of tho nation's robe.
But our growth has not been limited to terri
tory, population and aggregato wealth, mar
vellous as it has been In each of thoie directions.

Tho facilities for popular education have beon
vastly enlarged and more generally diffused.
Tbe virtues of courage and patriotism have
given recent proof of their continued presence
and increasing power in the hearts and over the
li es of our people.
Tho influences of religion have been multi
plied and strengthened. Tho sweet offices of
charity have greatly increased. The virtue of
temperance is held in highor estimation.
We havo not attained an ideal condition. Not
all of our people are happy and prosperous; not
all of them aro virtuous and lav. -abiding, hut,
on tho wholo, tho opportunities offered to tho
individual to secure tho comforts of life are hot
ter than are found elsewhere, and largely better
than thoy were here one hundred years ago,

The surrender of a large measnro of sover
eignty to the General Government, effected by
the adoption of the Constitution, was not accom
plished until tbe suggestions of reason were
strongly reinforced by the more imperative
voice of experience.
The divergent Interests of peace speedily de
manded a "more perfect union."
The merchant, shipmaster and manufacturer
discovered and disclosed to onr statesmen and
to the people that commercial emancipation
mnst be added to the political freedom which
had been so bravely won. Ihe commercial pol
icy of the mother country had not relaxed any
of its hard and oppressive features.
To hold hi check the development of our com
mercial marine, to prevent or retard the estab
lishment and growth of manufacture in the
Htates. and so to Recnre an American market for
their show and a carrying trade for tliclr ships,
was tho policy of European statesmen, and was
pursued with most selfish vigor.

X If tho dtteation bocuae iu any sense or at uy

was no reason why the cotton-prodnelr.g 'Hates
should not have led or walkod abicast with

the rnrK nAi.LOT needep.
It is not qnito Impossible, that tho farmers and
the promoters of mining and manufactur
ing enterprises which hao been recently
established In tho Houth may yet find
that the free ballot of tho irorkingman without,
distinction of race, is needed for their defense
as well as for his on n.
I do not doubt that If thnso men In the South
who now accept tho tariff views of Clay
ami tho constitutional expositions of
Webster, would courageously avow and defend
their rtal convictions, they would not find it
difficult by frlcndlj instruction iind co-operation
to make the black man their efficient
and safn ally, not only In establishing
correct principles in onr National Administra
tion, bnt in presenting for their local com
munities tho benefits of social order nnd
economical and honost government.
At least, until tbe good offices of kindness and
education hae been fairly tried, the contrary
conclusion cannot bo plausibly urged.
NO MOTIONAL rol.lCT.
I have altogether rejected the suggestion of a
special oxocutlvo policy for any section of our
country. It is tho duty or tho Executive to ad
minister and enforce In the methods and by the
instrumentalities pointed out and provided by
tho Constitution all the laws enacted by Con
gress. 'lheso laws are general, and their administra
tor should be uniform aud equal.
Asacitieu may not elect what laws he will
obey, neither may tbe Executive elect which ho
'J'ho duty to obey and to execute embraces tho
Constitution in Its entirety and tho wholo code
of laws enacted under it.
coni-onATtoNs must Minn tub iaw.
Theovll example of permitting individuals,
corporations or communities to nullify tho laws
becauso thoy cross some selfish or local interests
or prejudices is full of danger, not only to tho
nation at large, but much more to those who
uso this pernicious expedient to escape their
Just obligations or to obtain an unjust advan
tage over others.
They will piesently themselves be compelled
to appeal to the law for protection, and those
who would uso the law as a defense must not
deny that use of It to others.
It our great corporations would moro scrupu
lously observe their legal obligations and duties,
they would have lass cause to complain of the
unlawful limitations of their rights, or of vio
lent Interference with their operations.

A community where law is the order of con

THE .NATURALIZATION LAWS.
Our naturalization laws should lie so amended
as to mal.o the inquiry into the character
and good disposition of persons applying
for citizenship more careful and searching
Our existing laws have been in their administra
tion an unimpresshe and often an unintelligible
We accept the man as a citizen without any
knowledge ot his fluids, and he assumes the

to wbat they are.
The piivilegesof American citizenship are so
? treat aud its duties so grave that we may well
nsistupona good knowledge ot every person
applying for citizenship, and a good knowledge
by him of our Institutions.
We should not cease to be hospitable to immi
gration, but we should cease to be careless as to
the character of it. There are mon of all races,
oen the best, whose coming is necessarily a
burden upon our public revenue or a threat to
social order, 'these should be identified and
oun ronzins roLicr.
Wo have happily maintained a policy of avoid
ing all interference with European affairs.
We haw been only interested spectators of
their contentions in diplomacy and In war,
ready to uso our friendly offices to promote
peace, but never obtiuding our advice and
never attempting unfairly to coin the distresses
ol other powers into commercial advantage to

European policy will be the American policy of
It is so manifestly incompatible with those
precautions for our peace and safety which
all tho great powers habitually observe
and enforce In matters aflecting them,
that a shorter water way between
our eastern and western seaboards should be
dominated by anv European Government, that
we may confidently expect that such a purpose
will not be entertained by any friendly power.
rnlENDLT BUT WATCHIUL.
We shall, in the future as in the past, use
every endeavor to maintain and enlarge our
friendly relations with all the great Pow
ers, but they will not . expect ti to
look kindly upon any project that would leave
us mibect to the dangers of a hostile observation
We have not sought to dominate any of onr
weaker neighbors, but rather to aid and to en
courage them to establish free governments,
resting upon tbe consent of their own people.
e have a clear right to expect, therefore, that
no 1 uropcau government will seek to establish
colonial depeuiuiicies upon the territory of
there independent American States.
'J hat which a sense of justice restrains us from
seeking they may be reasonably expected will
ingly to forego.
It must not bo assumed, however, that our In
terests at e so exclusively American that our on
tiro inattention to any event that may transpire
elsewhere, can be taken for granted.
OUR INTERESTS ABROAD,
Our citizens domiciled for purposes of trade in
all countries andinmany of the islands of the
sea demand and will have our adequate care in
their personal commercial rights.
, The necessities of our navy require conven
ient coaling stations and dock and harbor
These and other tradlnj privileges we will feel
free to obtain only by means that dp not In
snv degree partake of coercion, however
feeble the government from which we ask such
concessions. ButhavlntT fairly obtained them,
bT.Pei"od ncl ,0T SPn?ae entirely consistent
with tho most 1 riendTy dlspojitlerr towards all
other powers, onr consent will be necessary to
any modification or impairment of the conces

We shall neither fall to respest Hit flag of my
friendly nation or the Jnst rights of its citizens,
nor to exact the like treatment for onr own.
Calmness, justice and cousideration should
characterize our diplomacy.
AN ADEqCATK PlrLOMAOT DZSIrUnLE.
The offices of an intelligent diplomacy,
or of friendly arbitration In proper
cases, should bo adequate to . the , peacefni
adjustment of all international difficulties. Br
such methods, we will make, our contribution to
the world's peace, which no nation values more
highly, and avoid tho opproblum which must fall
upon tho nation that ruthlessly breaks it.
ArroINTMENTH TO OFFICE.
Iho duty devolved hy law upon the President
to nominate and, by and with the
advice and consent of tho Henatc. to
appoint all pnhllc ofllcorH whoso appointment
is not otherwise provided for in the t'onstl
tiitiou or by act of Congress, has betome very
burdensome, and Its wise and cfucient discharge
full nr difficulty.
Tho civil list Is sn largo that a personal
knowledge of any large number of
tho applicants is IinpoHMllile. Ihe Trcs
blent miit rely upon the representations or
others, and these are often niado without con
sidi'iation aud without any just kcdhc of re
sponsibility. I have a right, I think, to Insist that thoso
who volunteer, or are Invited to givu advice, as
to appointments, shall exercise consideration
and fidelity. A high senso of duty and an am
bition to Improve thu service should character
ize all public nfilci rs.
WHAT 1H rXH'CTED or ArrOINTEES.
There aro many ways in which the conven
ience ami comfort of thoso who have busi
ness with our public officers may bu
piomntcd by a thoughtful and obliging
officer, and I shall expect those whom I may ap
point to Justify their selection by a conplcuous
efllclcnoy in the discharge of their dntlcs.
TARTT NERVICE DOEH NOT DISQUALIFY rOR OrTlCE.
Honorable ptrty service will certainly not be
esteemed by mo a disqualification for pnblie
office, but it will In no case bu allowed to serve
as a shield of official negligence, incompetency
It is entirely creditable to soek public office by
proper methods nnd with proper motives, and
applicants will lie treated with consideration.
TEHSIBTENT IMrORTUNtHTS. HE WARNED.
Hut 1 shall need.and the heads of departments
will need, tlmo for inquiry and dellbciation.
Persistent importunity will not. therefore, be
the best support of an application for office.
TO EMURCE THE CIVIL-SERVICE LAW.
Heads of departments, bureaus and all other
public offlccis hav itig any duty connocted the ro
wlth will bo expected to enforco theCivll-Her-vice
law fully anil nithout evasion.
Beyond this obvious duty, I hope to do some
thing more to advance the reform of the civil
service 'Iho Ideal or oven my own ideal I shall
probably not attain.
I'ro-pict will bo a safer basis of judgment than
promises. Wo shall not, however, I am sure,
be able to put our civil service upon a non-par-tissu
baxis until we havo scant d an incumbency
that fair-minded men of the opposition will ap
prove for impaitiality and integrity. As the
number of such lit tho ciyil list increases re
movals from office will diminish.
THE TnEAHURT SURPLUS.
While a Treasury surplus is not the greatest
evil It Is a serious evil.
Our revenue should be amplo to meet the ordi
nary annual demands upon our treasury, with a
sufilclcnt margin for those extraordinary but
scarcely less imperative demands which arise
now nnd then.
Expenditure should always be made with
economy and only upon publio necessity. Waste
fulness, prolligacy or favoritism in public ex
penditures is criminal.
But there Is nothing in tbo condition of our
country or of our people to suggest that any
thing presently necessary to tho publio prosper
ity, security or houor should bo unduly post
poned. , ,
It will bo the duty of Congress wisely to fore
cast and estimate these extraordinary demands,
and having added them to our ordinary expendi
tures, to so adjust our revenue laws that so con
siderable annual surplus will remain.
We will fortunately be able to apply to the re
demption of the publio debt any small and un
foreseen excess of revenue.
This is better than to reduce, our income below
onr necessary expenditures, with tho resulting
choice between another change of our revenue
lavvB and an increaso of tho publio dobt.
THE REDUCTION OF REVENUES.
It is quite possible I am sure, to effect tho
necessary reduction in our revenues without
breaking down our protective tariff or serionsly
Injuring any domestic industry.
nUILD UP THE NAVT.
The construction of a sufflclont number of
modern war ships and of their necessary arma
ment should progress as l apidly as Is consistent
with caie aud perfection in plans aud workman
ship. 'Iho spirit, courage and skill of our naval
officers and stamen havo many times in our
history given to weak ships aud inefficient gnus
a rating greatly beyond that of the naval
'1 hat they will again do so upon occasion I do
not doubt: but they ought not by premeditation
or neglect to be left to the risks and exigencies
of an unequal combat.
TNCOURAOEUENT TO OCEAN CARRIERS.
We should encourage the establishment of
American steamship lines.
The exchanges of coinmeroe demsnd stated,
reliable and rapid means of communication, ana
until tbeso aro provided tho development of our
trade with tho States lying south of us is im
possible. PENSION REFORMS NECESSARY.
Our Ponslon law should give more adeqnate
and discriminating relief to tho Union soldiers
aud sailors and to their widows and orphans.
Huch occasions as this should remind us that
wo owe. over thing to their valor and sacrifice.
THE NEW STATES,
It is a subject of congratulation that there is a
near prospect of tho admission into tho Union of
the Dakota aud Montana and Washington Ter
ritories. This act of Justice has been unreason
ably delayed in the enso or soino or them.
The people who havo sottled those Territories
are intelligent, enterprising aud patriotic, and
the accession or these now Htates will add
strength to tho nation.
It is due to the settlers in the Territories who
have availed themselves of tho invitations of
otu land laws to make homes upon the public
domain mat meir iitiea snnuin oo specouv ad
justed and their honest eutiies confirmed by
RErORM IN ELECTION LAWS.
It Is very giatifying to observe the general
interest now being manifested in the reform of
our election laws.
Thoso who have been for years calling atten
tion to tho pressing necessity or throwing about

Tbe National Congress has not as yet taken
control or elections In that case over which the
Constitution givea it jurisdiction, but has ac
cepted aud adopted the election laws of the sev
eral States, and provided penalties for tholr ic
lation and methods of supervision.
Only the inefficiency of the State laws, or tho
unfair or partisan administration of them,
could suggest a departure from this policy. It
was clearly, however, in the contemplation of
the frainers or the Constitution that such an
exigency might arise, aud provision was wisely
made for it. No power vested in Congress, or
in tho Executive, to secure or perpetuate it,
should remaiu unused upon occasion.

The people of all tho Congressional districts
have an i qual interest that the election in each

the insistence of electors residing in otbor dis

savor at all of Impertinence.
If In any of tbe States the publio security is
thought to be threatened by ignorance among
the electors, tho obvious remedy is education.

with special embarrassments or difficulties con

The Police Were Attacked In Btlller'a
Hntnoni nnd tlloed Wa Ilelng fhet

Kaspar Pfost is nncontcions and likely to die
in tho New York Hospital, his injuries being tha
result of a clubbing administered to him by Po
liceman 1'atrick Lavin, of the West Twentieth
street station-house, last night.
Lavin and a comrade named Dannon wet
scut out in citlrcn's clothes yesterday to arrest
saloon-keeper found violating the Excise law.
According to tho story they tell, the clubbing
of Pfost was justifiable.
Dannon says that at about 0. 30 r. M. he went
into Ernest Miller's saloon at 443 West Twenty
sixth street, obtaining admission through the
side door. Miller was behind the bar. When
ho attempted to arrest him four other men, two
women and two bovs assaulted him.
One of the women tried to reach hia vital with
a huRo carving knife. Onoofthemen banged
him in the side with a beer keg. Another hit
him with a bung-starter.
He pulled his pistol nnd called for Lavin.
Meantime Miller rushed out. Hla friends lr
sldo locked the door after him to prevent Bar,
non following him.
When Lavin found the door locked he tried
to kick it in to go to his companion's assistance.
The noiso he made attracted the attention of
Pfost, tho Janitor of the house.
He ran down in the ball with a big elnb and
attacked Lavin. He did not know the latter wa
a policeman and Lavin did not know that hewa
Lavin is Irish, and talks no Herman. He laid
to Pfost: "I am a policeman."
Pfost does not understand English.
" Get out, you loafer. lam the janitor, "ha
said in German.
Mrs. Pfost followed her husband downstair
and turned off tho gas inthehslL Then her
hniband clubbed Lavin until the latter
wrenched the club away.
Then he beat Pfost until the latter fell uncon
scious in thu yard.
Thon Dannon forced the door open and came
out with a prisoner named Michael Miller, a
cabinet-maker, who lives in the house.
Miller was the man who hit the policeman with
the keg. Pfost' was sent, undor arrest, to tho
New York Hospital.
There it was found that his skull wa frac
tured. He has two children. Mrs. Pfost say
the story abovo is true except that her hnsband
did not use tho club, only ordered Lavin ont,
and that tho policeman grabbed the stlok and
used it without any necessity.
Michael Miller was held In the Jefferson Mar
ket Police Court this morning for examination
Lavin. it is said, has been in trouble recently
for clubbing unnecessarily.
Ernest Miller, the saloon-keeper, assaulted
two policemen six months ago when they tried
to arrest him for violating the Exctf e law. Ho
escaped last night.
