-1 Head of Mexico Leaves
J MEXICO CITY, May 1. Venustiano
Carranza took the oath of office late
' J today as tno first constitutional p'rcsl-
l dent of Mexico since the assassination
' of President Francisco Madero on
1 February 23, 1913. Backed by a nia-
1 fority of nearly 800,000 votes, given
1 ijjpj by the Mexican people at the
i March elections, President Carranza
l drove from the national palace to the
it chamber of deputies and swore to up-
."& hold the new constitution.
' president Carranza left the presl-
' dential gate at the palace at 5 o'clock
in an open carriage. Seated beside
! jjm -was General Obregon, minister of
i -n-ar in the provisional cabinet. The
carriage was escorted by the survivors
j of the signers of the plan of Guade-
- 1 loupe, which formed tho basis of the
J revolutionary scheme.
The streets were lined by double
ranks of soldiers, who presented arms
as the cortege passed. As the presi-
' dent emerged from the palace a presi-
f i dential salute of twenty-one guns was
fired to play the national anthem.
I At the chamber of deputies Presi
j dent Carranza was received by a com-
mittce of congressmen, who led him
-f to the rostrum, where tne president of
1 , the chaniber administered the oath.
j The ceremony was extremely simple,
j consisting of the reading of the oath
J and General Carranza's reply, "I swear
j u." The president then re-entered his
I carriage and returned to the palace.
' The-members of the diplomatic corps
! ittended the ceremony and subsequent-
j y returned with the president to tho
j palace, where United States Ambassa-
' dor Fletcher, as ranking member, of-
' fered the president the congratulations
.. of foreign nations on Mexico's return
j 1 to constitutional government.
' 1 Later in the evening a parade of
-' more thnn 20,000 persons, composed of
I j joldlers, students, government em-
h ) ployes, labor unions and commercial
, organizations, formed at the Juarez
r' monument and marched to the palace,
t ' where it was reviewed by the presi-
dent As the parade reached the plaza
t j in front of the palace all lights were
i- extinguished for five minutes while
i fireworks and electrical displays
i1 l blazed from the cathedral. At the
t ; same time 5000 carrier pigeons were
v ( released to carry the news of the in-
j? , auguration throughout the republic.
Lv" i The German minister. Heinrich von
h 1 Eckhardt, and other diplomatic repre-
C i sentatives, were received in silence.
' President Carranza's first official
I ;' act was to pardon E. Velasquez, a la-
p bor leader, who has been in jail since
, August oncharges in connection with
' the strike at that time.
