With Imposing Ceremonies, .Gen.
Bushnell Becomes Governor.
The Oath of Office Administered in
the Rotunda of the Stato Houses
Thousands WItnesaed tho Ceremonies nnd
the Splendid I'nrnilo Thlrtj-Nlne Civic
and Political, nnd 00 Military Or
ganizations l'artlclpated In It.
Columbus, 0., Jan. 13. Tho fates
that preside over tho weather depart
ment was certainly favorable to cere
monies attending tho inauguration of
Gen. Asa S. Bushnell Monday.
Undor tho auspices of tho inaugura
tion committees a corps of decorators
liavo been at work for two days and
nights festooning tho mammoth arches
of tho rotunda with gaudy bunting
and flags and pictures of eminent
Ohio republicans, and the stage, made
as commodious as the limited space
would permit, was erected for tho ac
commodation of tho retiring and in
coming officials, members of tho legis
Gov. McKinley, got over to the office
from the Neil house at an early hour.
There were still a few letters to write,
and a few documents yet to sign. Ho
had no timo to himself, however, not
even a minute, as a stream of callers
poured in and out of tho office cease
lessly, saying good-by and wishing
him success in tho future. Con
fusion, which reigned everywhere,
Tad its center in the govern
or's office. At 11:30 Gov. McKinley
with his military staff in full uniform
and tho members of the joint legisla
tive committee, loft tho state-house In
a procession and took carriages at the
Uroad street front of the capitol build
ing, going to tho Chittenden hotel to
meet Gov. Bushnell. The party was a
distinguished looking one, and being
recognized as it went down High street,
was loudly cheered by the thousands
that lined tho sidewalks on cither
side. There was an immense crush ut
tho Chittenden. Everybody that vas
mot at the state house was at the hotel.
Gov. Bushnell, with his new staff, look
ing very imposing in their handsome
uniform, had been holding a levee all
tho morning. The governor's family
were with him, accompanied by a num
ber of friends from Springfield.
The arrival of Gov. McKinley nnd
party was made known to the incom
"ing chief magistrate by a great shout
,oi welcome which rang through the
corridors of the hotel. It was several
tainutes before tho elevators got them
all to Gov. Uushnoll's apartments, where
thero was an informal but hearty ex
change of greetings. The two govern
ors introduced tho members of their
staffs to one another, but few of them
being acquainted, and chatted for a
few minutes with tho members of tho
legislature constituting tho joint com
mittee. It was about ten minutes be
fore tho noon hour when tho move
ment to the stato houso began. Gov.
McKinley took Gov. Bushnell at his
right 6ido nnd started down tho stair
way, tho legislative committee immedi
ately following, with tho staffs of the
two governors behind.
Cheer after cheer rent tho air as they
walked down tho crowded stairways
of the hotel to tho lobby. When tho
woll known figures of liushiicll and
McKinley appeared at tho-landing of
tho grand staircase tho groat crowd in
the lobby set up a tremendous cheer
ing and clapping of hands.
Arrived at tho state house, the retir
ing and incoming governors and their
escort wero vociferously received and,
on marching through tho dense mass
of people through tho rotunda, found
in waiting the members of tho legisla
ture, tho justices of tho supreme court
and city, county and state officials,
present by invitation, seated upon the
The massivo arches of tho rotunda
and tho somber corridors of tho state
houso rang with cheer after cheer when
McKinley and Bushnell walked in.
Every availablo inch of room had been
utilized to put somobody into, both on
the stage, tho floor of the rotunda nnd
tho steps and hallways beyond. Gov.
Bushnell smilingly bowed his acknowl
edgments of his more than flattering
reception.aiul nmut a storm of applause
mounted tho steps of tho platform and
sat down back of a tabic with Lieut.
Gov. Jones nt his left and Gov. McKin
ley at his right
When tho confusion had partially
subsided, ltev. William J. Russell, pas
tor of the Central Christian church,
stepped forward and made the invoca
tion. It was apt and eloquent, and,
unlike many, was of becoming brevity.
After a brief pause, Gov. Bushnell
arose nnd took1 tho oath of office. This
was administered by the chief justice
of tho supremo1 court, who mado
tho incident an imposing one. Look
ing Gov. Bushnell seriously in tho
face, speaking with great deliberation
in a tono which rang all through the
distant space, ho exacted from tho in
coming governor tho obligations to
pupport tho constitution, uphold tho
laws and faithfully discharge tho du
ties of his high office. Instead of mere
ly bowing his acknowledgments, as is
often done under such circumstances,
Gov. Bushnell responded in firm and
ringing tones, tho words, "I do."
Asa S. Bushnell was now governor
of Ohio and William McKinley a pri
vate citizen. There was another burst
of applause and cheers when tho crowd
realized that tho change had been
consummated and that the republican
standard-bearer of last year was at
last firmly fixed in tho otllco to which
their suffrages had elected him.
i Gov. Bushnell then began the deliv
-'i J irn1 ;'-- r---- if-nn !' i ' I--'--t- '- - - -
ery of his address. It had. of course,
been prepared in advance, and was
read by tho governor in a loud, clear
voice. Ilis discussion of state affairs
met with great favor, especially from
the members of tho legislature, who
warmly applauded the vorious sugges
At tho conclusion of the address the
official party took carriages and par
ticipated in tho huge parade.
Tho procession formed on Third
streot centering at Third and i Broad
and Third and State. Jt moved south
wardly to Third and Mound, thence
ono square west to High, north on nigh
streot to tho viaduct and back again
past tho reviewing stand at tho north
front of the state house.
Gov. Bushnell rode with uncovered
head, bowing his acknowledgments
to tho yelling multitude and smiling
graciously to the zealots who shouted
'Hurrah for Bushnell!" until they
looked tired. Tho demonstration given
Gov. Bushnell was purely spontane
ous, and showed tho kindly regard in
which the new chief magistrate was
held by the people,
Gov. McKinley was seated besido
Gov. Bushnell, but did not recognize
any of tho tumultuous demonstrations
except when the name of McKinley
was called out and cheered when ho
would quietly nod and turn to Gov.
Tho parade was the finest over seen
at an inauguration. It was immenso
in numbers and in tho splendor of dis
play. Tho gentlemen composing tho
various civic and military organiza
tions had boon waiting with some im
patience on the cold ground for over
an hour, sorao of them having been on
their feet for two hours, and it was
with a degree of relief that they re
ceived the order to march and stepped
gaily away to the inspiring music of
tho many bands.
In tho procession were 39 civil and
political organizations and CO military
organizations which was reviewed by
the gubernatorial party from a stand
on tho north side of tho capitol.
Immediately after the parade ex
Gov. McKinley and Gov. Bushnell
were driven to their respective quar
ters, and tho members of tho legisla
ture and Lieut. Gov. Jones repaired to
the senate chamber, where the oath of
office was administered to tho latter.
On taking tho oath of office Gon. Jones
spoke at some length.
The other state officers wont to their
respective offices accompanied by their
predecessors, where, by arrangement,
different members of the supreme
court wero present to administer the
oaths of office as required by law, and
tho inauguration exercises wero over.

Washington, Jan. 13. Mr. Henry
Norman, tho special commissioner of
tho London Daily Chronicle, cabling
to his paper beforo leaving Washing
ton Sunday, says:
There is n simpler solution of tho
present difficulty and restoration of
cordial relations between England and
America thanany I have suggested.
Why should not Lord Salisbury at
tach to tho Bering sea arbitration
treaty, which is about to be returned
to tho American governmont, a clauso
providing for the arbitration of all
pending questions, and even of all fu
turo ones? Besides Venezuela and
Canada there are the Alaska boundary,
tho eastern fisheries, and other
questions causing discord, If ho
docs this I am able to stato that tho
administration will accept with pleas
ure tho treaty so nltered. This is a
method of accomplishing everything
with perfect honor and dignity to both
Lord Salisbury would bo wise to ter
minate tho matter before Brazil de
mands arbitration of her end of tho
Schomburgk lino, thus adding a new
and difficult complication.
London, Jan. 13. In an editorial
Monday the Standard says that tho
communications it publishes relative
to the attitude to Germany and tho
Transvaal and the publication of tho
papers on tho Venezuelan difficulty
are all authoritative. It adds:
Urged by friendly public opinion in
the United States- to place beforo the
world as soon as may bo the British
case as regards tho controversy with
Venezuela, tho cabinet on Saturday
decided to respond to this amicable in
vitation by publishing the material
documents in its possession bear
ing thereon. Of far more in
terest to tho English people than
tho problems to be faced in South
Africa or tho relations of this country
with any other power aro its relations
with tho United States, and wo gladly
take tho opportunity of bearing testi
mony to tho magnanimous attitude of
tho Americans toward us at a momont
when a community less generous
thought apparently that a favorable
opportunity had arisen for adopting
toward us a tono of insult,
if not of menace. Instead
of taking advantage of tho augmenta
tion of our anxieties and tho tempo
rary multiplication of our events, tho
American, with a spirit that does him
honor and which is appreciated by us,
have not only abstained from endeav
oring to add to our perplexities, but,
whero they did not actually offer us
their sympathy, thoy have maintained
an honorable, courteous reserve. That
is conduct worthy of them, and it has
not unnaturally inspired the English
government with a desire to
meot our kinsfolk across the Atlantic
in a friendly spirit. Lord Salisbury,
as we announced before, has decided
not to wait for a meeting of parlia
ment, but will publish as soon as they
can bo got ready all tho documents in
his possession bearing upon tho dis
puted boundary between British
Guiana and Venezuela. As we havo
said, tho attitude of tho people of the
United States during the past week
has materially Influenced tho prime
minister's decision, just as it has
quickened tho feeling of friendship
entertained by Englishmen for thoso
who speak their tongue and share their
literature on tho other sido of the
ocean. Tho maintenance of friendly
relations with the United States must
always be a consideration of tho first
importance for Great Britain. Wo say
this to tho Ainericau people with tho
absolute candor of deep seated cordi
ality. Tho foregoing article is leaded
throughout and Is evidently inspired
by tho government.
