Washington. D. C.. March 4?
Woodrow Wilson, ot New Jersey.
was inaugurated today as President
of the United States; Thomas K.
Marshall, of Indiana, its vice
President; Democracy, the vehicle
of itt destiny.
Under the dome of the nation's
capitol, in the presence of c ? ountless
cheering concourse of his fellow'
citizens, the new President raised a
hand toward a prophetic run that
burst, dissolving clouds, tnd peo*
oounced the occasion a day of ded?
ication, not of triumph.
It was an intensely human, prece?
dent breaking inauguration. With
member** of his chosen cabinet sur?
rounding him, the justices of the
Supreme Court before him, his wife
and daughters actually dancing for
joy on the platform below, and
William Howard Taft, ex-President
of the nation, at his side, the new
President shouted a summons to all
"honest, patriotic, forward looking
men" to aid him, extending the
promise that he would not fail them
in the guidance of their government.
While the President's concluding
inaugural words were tossing in tu?
multuous waves of tpp.tuse. thc
retirirg President clasped his hand
and enlisted as a patriotic servant ic
the rtnkt of private citiz nship.
"Mr. Preaident." stid Mr. Taft
his face beaming with a smile,
with you t successful administrate
and the carrying out of your aims
We will all be behind you."

The music of the bands, the gli
