Almost Precipitated a Serious
Roit in Washington
CAVALRY GO TO THE RESCUE
Women Had To Fight Their
Way Through Jeers, Taunts
Washington, March 3, Five thou
sand women marching in the women
suffrage pageant Monday practical
ly fought their way foot by foot up
.i Pennsylvania avenue through a
surging mob that completely defied
the Washington police, swamped the
marchers and broke their procession
into little companies. The women
trudging stoutly along under gret t
difficulties, were able to complete
their march only when troop3 of
calvalry from Fort Meyer were rush
ed into Washington to take charge,
of Pennsylvania avenue. No inaug
uration has produced such scenes,
which in many instances amounted
to nothing less than riots.
Later in Continental hall, the wo
men turned what was to have been
a suffrage demonstration into an in
dignation meeting in which the
Washington police were roundly de-
3W3nced for their inactivity and res
(QEjAitions were passed calling upon
resident-elect Wilson and the in
coming congress to make an investi
gation and locate the responsibility
for the indignities the marchers suf
fered. Miss Hellen Keller, the not
ed deaf and blind girl, was so ex
hausted and unnerved by the ex
perience in attempting to reach a
grandstand where she was to have
been a guest of honor that she was
unable to speak later at Contien
The women calvalry first tried to
rida down the, mob and one woman
struck a hoodlum across the face
with her riding whip. The crowd
was very hostile. Many of the wo
men were in tears under the jeers
and insults that lined the route.

FOR JUSTICE ONLY
His Inaugural Address Calls on
AN Honest Hen to Aid in
WILL RESTORE, NOT DESTROY
New Chief Executive 8ays Change of
I Government Means the Nation Is
Using Democratic Patry for
Large and Definite Purpose.
Washington, March 4. Looking
jupoa the victory of tho Democratic
party as tho mandate of tho nation to
correct tho evils that have been al
lowed to grow up In our national lifo,
President Wilson In his inaugural ad
'dress today called on all honest, men
to assist him in carrying out tho will
(of tho people. Following Is his ad
dress: Thero has been a change of govern
ment. It began two years ago, when
tho bouBo of representatives became
Democratic by a decislvo majority,
lit has now been completed. The sen
ate about to assemble will also bo
Democratic Tho offices of president
and vlco-prosident havo been put into
'the hands of Democrats. What does
'the change mean? That is tho ques
tion that is uppermost in our minds
today. That 1b the question I am go
ling to try to answer, In order, if I
may, to Interpret the occasion.
New Insight Into Our Life.
It means much more than tho mere
success of a party. The success of a
party means little except when tho
nation is using that party for a largo
,and definite porpose. No one can
.mlstako the purpose for which tho
nation now seeks to use, tho Demo
cratic party. It seeks to use it to in
terpret a change In its own plans and
point of viow. Somo old things with
which wo had grown familiar, and
which had begun to creep Into the
(very habit of our thought and of our
lives, have altered their aspect as wq
have latterly looked critically upon
ithem, with fresh, awakened eyes;
have dropped their disguises and
shown themselves alien and sinister.
iSomo now things, as wo look frankly
.upon them, willing to comprehend
.their real character, have come to as
sume tho aspect of things long believ
ed In and familiar, stuff of our own
convictions. We have been refreshed
I by a now insight Into our own life.
' Wo see that In many things that
jlife Is very great. It Is incomparably
great In its material aspects, In its
I body of wealth, in tho diversity and
'Bweep of its energy, in the industries
I which havo been conceived and built
I up by the genius of individual men
and the limitless enterprise of groups
of men. It Is great, also, very great,
!ln its moral force. Nowhere else In
tho world havo noble men and women
.exhibited in more striking form the
beauty and energy of sympathy and
helpfulness and counsel in their efforts
.to rectify wrong, alleviate suffering,
and set the weak- In tho "way ol
strength qnd hope. We have built up,
'moreover, a Great system of govern
iment, which has stood through a long
'age as in many respects a model foi
those who seek to set liberty upon
foundations that will enduro against
fortuitous change, against storm and
accident. Our life contains every
creat thine, and contains it in rich
; Human Cost Not Counted.
But the evil has come with the
I good, and much lino gold has been
corroded. With riches has come in
excusable waste. Wo have squan
dered a great part of what wo might
have used, and havo not Btopped to
consorvo tho exceeding bounty of na
ture, without which our genius for en-
terprlao would havo been worthless
and impotent, scorning to bo careful,'
shamefully prodigal as well as admir
ably efficient W havo been proud ol
our Industrial achievements, but wa
havo not hitherto stopped thought
fully enough to count tho human coat,
the cost of lives snuffed out, ot ener
gies overtaxed and broken, tho fear

It all has fallen pitilessly tho years J

(VOID AFTER MARCH 18.)
The Webb Bill.
The Webb bill may or may not be
unconstitutional. Former Federal
Judge Taft and soon-to-be Prof.
Taft, of the Yale law faculty, as well
as the ablest lawyers in the House
and Senate, believe it to be a viola
tion of that clause of the Constitution
which reserves to Congress the pow
er to regulate commerce between
the States. As lawyers they hold
that the powers reserved to Congress
cannot bo delegated to the States.
That is one view of tho question.
The other and the easier to act on is
EACH WEEK OF CONTEST.
For The Final Count If You Want
The Six To Win.
