""6"d' out of the White House in the
eig lmorning dawn of March 4. 1801, toavoid
xteniding to his hatred rival, Thomas Jeffer
-son, the hospit altites of the exeautive mansion,
there had been no break in the uniform courtesy
extendedievely four ,or eight yealts by the as
tiring chif to his, successor, unless there be
excepted the personal misunderstanding which
arose betwren President Andrew Johnson and
Claenp. ron in the last days of the former's ad
ministratiI. which made their intercourse a
frigid formhllty. fIn this year of grace, courtesy
between the outgoing and incoming powers
has reigned supreme, as witness the banquets
given by the senate without distinctiou of party
to Vice-President Morton and Secretary Car
lisle, the reception tendered by Vice
President Morton to Vice - President
Stevenson, and the merked civilities exchanged
between Presidents Harrison snl Cleve
land. "I desire the ideas of President Harri
son carried ouit as to my conveyance to the
inatrkurl ceremonies," wrote Mr. Cleveland.
"A very sensible suggestion is attributed to
`him. and that is that t ride in his carriage, as
he did in mine on the 4th of Mareh. 1us9." And
so it was. 4n1 the ceremonial calls and the
other little niceties ofi the day were observed
between them with n cheerful alacrity indica
tive of almost cordial friendship.
The scenealong the line of march was sach
as no city but Washington and no street but
its broad, well-paved Pennsylvania avenue
couldproduce, though the comfort of the crowds
lining the thoroughfare was somewhat marred
Sby a heavy fall of snow which drove many to
seek shelter who would otherwise gladly have
swelled the throng. Public nd private astnd
erected along the line of march from the capitol
to a point beyond the White House had an es
timated seating capacity of 60.000 persons. And
every one of them was crowded. Every foot
of standing room along the route of the proces
siond, fully two miles in length. was occupied;
windows commanding a view of the parade
brought ofabulous prices and advantageous
seats on the public stands commanded prices
ranging firom 5 up and down. The main stand
from which President Cleveland reviewed the
parade was in front of the White House. It was
c0 fteet long and quite deep and had a com
fortaeble seating capacity for 1.100 per
seas. t670 more than the corresponld
ing stand erected on t same site for the in
auguratiei of President Harrison. It was
decoratedwith effective taste. In the center
was an archforty-two fteet high, and similarly
draped and pedm ounted by the arms ofr the
United Sttems.On the extreme right was ih
coat-of-arms of New York (Mr. Cleveland
stiate). On the extreme left was the coat-of
arms of Illinois (Vice-President Stevenson's
state). and between them were diaplayed the
armorial earings aof the other members of the
thirteen original states. Above each of these
insignia was a banner bearing the name of the
state. Cushioned seats were provided for the
residenot and his cabinet who surrounded him.
and folding chairs were supplied for the diplo
matic corps, who were arranged immediately
behind him. On either side were seats for sena
torsa members of the house ofi representatives
and specially invited guests. The Iearest
stand to that of the president was assigned to
reporters oif the press. st had a soeing ca
pacity of 20 and the applicatIons to the press
committee numbered a little over 2000. The
vast treasury building was completely walled
in with stands. The principal one extended
along the entire front of the building along
Pennsylvania avenue, and had a capacity
for seating several thousand people. This
was an open stand, and was intended
to be occupied chiefly by the depart
ment employes and their families.
But the position most souglht after in connec
tion with the treasury building was the stand
onFifter ntrh twhrt. which commanded an un
obstructed view of the avenue all the way to
tge capitol On all the little parks and'opuhe
resgreation on the line of march, and on every

The Inaugural Atlras3.
?,r. Cleveland delivered his inaugural ad
dress as follows:
1.1 FElar.ruw-Cu3Txxy:-In accordance with
the mandate of the people of :ni country I am
al:out to delir"ute myself to their service under
the atic-tiou of a solemn onath. Deely mov-ed
by the expres-ion of eontidene--and personal
attachment which has railed me to this service.
I ant sure uy gratitude can malse no better re
turn than tia pledge I now give before Gond and
these witnesses of unre-served and connute;:.
devotion to the, interests and welfare of those
who have honored mne.
I deem it fitting on this occasion, while indi
cating the opinions I hold concernin t public
questions of present iaportance,h to also riefly
refer to the existence of certain conditions and
tendenttes among our people which seem to
menace the Integrity and usefulness of their
While every American citizen must contem
plate with the utmost pride andl enthusiasm
the crowth end expansion of oulr country, the
stfiidsncy of our institutions to st:and against
the rudest shocks of violence,. the wonderful
thrift and entrprlts of our people. and the
demonstrated superiority of our free govern
ment, it behooves us to con. ttantly watch for
every symptom of insidious inftrmity that
threatens our national vigor.
The strong man who, in the confldence of
sturdy health. conrt:c Ihe sternest nctiviti.-s of
life and rejoices in the hardihood of constant
labor, may still have lurh~ine near: his vitals
the unheeded disease that dooms him to s-id
den collapcse. It can not be doutted that our
stupendous achievements sn a people and our
country's robust strength have given rise to a
heedlessness of those laws n.Avernine our na
tional health. which we can no more evade than
human life can escape the laws of God and na
Manifestly nothing is more vital to our su
premacy as a nation and to the benelcient per
poses of our government tlhan a sound and
stable currency. Its exposure to ,leracdation
should at once arouse to activity the most en
lightened statesmanship: and tile danger of
deprecation into the pIruhasncr power of the
wages paid to toil-should furnish the strongest
incentive to prompt and conservative caution.
In dealing with our present embarrassing
situation, as related to this subje.t. we a-il 1 1i-e
wise if we temper our confldence and faith In
or national strength and resources with
ie rank concession that even thn ree
will not permit o rs to defy witn h
impunity the inexoraled laws of mtnutce and
trade. At the same time, in our eforts to ad
just the dWiferences of opinion we should be froe
from intolerance or passion, and oor judgments
should be unmoved by ealtirin phrases and an
vexed by relfish interest.s I am confddent that
such an approach to the a;libiedt w-il ri,siult in

a addrcess. It is the quadriennial tribute paid by
n politics to society. There have been but two
~- intermissions in the series of inaugural balls to
comomemorate the accession of a newly-elected
i- president since the days of Madison. and that
covers a period of eighty-four years.

Secretary of State.
Walter Q. Gresham, Mr. Cleveland's choice
I for secretary of ptate, is better.known through
his former republican afrliution. His choice
for thenost important position in the cabinet
was a surprise. toaUll parties. but his thorough
accord with Mr. Clevelandon the tariff question
and his undanonaed qualliicantions. coupled with
unimpeachable personal integrity. probably
suggested his appointment.
The great questions now peading in the state
department-the Behring sea arhitration. the
Canadian railway matter, even the Hawaiian
qutestion-require the masterly hand of a great
lawyer to deal'with them. Such a hand Judge
SGresham can bring into Mr. Cleveland s cabinet.
When Arthur succeeded Garfield Gresham
Sbecame postmaster-general in the cabinet and
t made an exceligat record. Before the close of
Sj the administration he was appointed judge of
the Seventh judicial district. a position which
he has since held. His record on the bench is
well known.
The Seventh judleial circuit. involving the
Sholding of the Untied States courts at Chica
Sga. naturally brings within its jurisdiction
many cases of the first importance. Judge
Gresham has worthily maintained the high
Sreputation of the court which it obtained in the
- time of Davis and his successor. Judge Drum

of that of many stalwart westerners, of whom
Abraham Lincoln was a good exemplar. He
was a native or Harrison county, Ind.. born
I March I. 1832. so that he will be e61 years of
age a few days after he becomes secretary of
SLike Harrisons ancestor. Gresham's grand
Sfather., George Greshuam, had come from Vir
In 1P85 he was admitted to the bar and from
t that time till 1'60 was busy with a growing law
practice and with polities, in which he took an
interest from his boyhood. He also joined the
militia and was a captain when the wag broke
t out, so it.wns almost inevitable that he- should
1 - lead his neighbors into active service when the
I fighting began.
SHe started in as lieutenant-colonel of the
Thirty-eigrhth Indiana regiment, soon became
colonel of the Fifty-third Indiana. and, on the
[ recommendation of 1oth Grant and Sherman.
- was made a tbrigadler-general and placed in
[command of Natchez. During the "march to
Sthe sea" he commanded a division of the Sev
enteenth army corps. He was highly regarded
t by the late lamented McPherson. and on the
same day that McPherson was killed Gresham
received the wound that incapacitated him for
z further service.
n Judge Gresham is a six-footer in stature. and
e in his youth was called the handsomest follow
e in his part of the country. lTe has always been

Scetretary of the Treasury.
rhe fact, that John Gritln Carlisle has been
chosen to fil the secretarythip of the treasury
in the Cleveland cnbinet hardly brings any add
ed honor to the great Kentuckian. He began
ct life at the bottom. and by his own energy, brains
ani force of character is littely 3o leave it at the
ti top. He was born in Kent ucly. September H.
18355*. He h1i a common school education only.
ued taught school himself while he prosecuted
"sthe preliminary studies of the law. He must
have been a precocious teacher, as he was ad
le mitted to the bar at 21. He still bears more re
st s.'mublancceo the pedacogue than the states
l man. He went into politics. as most Ken
th tuckians do, simultaneously with going into
law, and the very next year. 1(1559. was sent to
the Kentucky house of representaive.
tz Four years later he declined the
in nomination for presidentiai elector on the
in democratic ticket. and he went to the state
:h senate in 1866. He was then 80 years of age,
ans nd from that time forward rose rapidly in pop
. ular esteem. iHe was re-elected to the senate in
?n I8eO. In the previous year. however, *he made
el -his debut in the national political arena as
sa delegate-at-large from his state to the National

It he served from that time with growing distlnu
rf. tion untilge was chosen speaker of the house
irt of represeitatives.
to The congressional life of M1r. Carlisle has been
* one continuous triumph. From his advent up
a on the floor of the house to the day of'his eloc
nI tion to the speakership he was a controlling
I pirit.
td Mr. Carlisle won his sptrs in congress on the
, Carlisle internal ravenue bill in the Forty-.sixth
I. congress. From that hour he becemo the ree
re ognized leader of his party on the great ques
ed j tion of taxation-one which is less throughly
r understood than any other question of national
;l~ polity. He was the lif' nnd soul of the 3 Itr
i, cent. bank bill, which. under bhi able man

Lamont has been adpolititen from boyhood.
e Is 4': yeares old and a native of New York.
AMr0 Lamont's first work was as a elerk in his
father's store o n his nnn io e tonett te Cortlnd.
He uperorind this worke on the same 4rutos that
he attended the village school, where he was
fitted.for the Central academy, which succeeded
thera'bolitionl ts' college at the breaking out of
the war. He finished his . academic
course and entered Unioon college
in the class of ' r. It Is rememlbeted of
him that he was a diligent student and was I
usualy at the head ofhis class, so that.woa

A 20 Lamont was sent a egat be1
state convention at ibchhster in 1871. Thaet was -
a famous convention-the one that' followed
close upon the exposure of the corruption undler
Every step in the convention was on tested,
and. Lamont, is proud of saying that oman in
roll call he voted with Tilden. The fact at
tracted the 'afteantion of or. Tlden to thee bo
delegate from Cotleand. b far the youngaest
member of the convention-and ths thentwo
beame acqrainted. Tlden won: Twded's
delegates wemr thrown out, and the reform
delegates, under Oswald wOttendorser. were
The acquaontance that was thus begun bhe
tween Mr.. Tilden and Mr. Lamnt quicnly rip
enedinto a friendshh p that was never after
wards broken, Though b 'ramont was only :0 1
years of age, and was.not a leader even in his
own county. he ripened that friendship, which
resulted in his being closer to Tlden in the
counsels of the party than any other man in
his following. He was oiesent at eerfconfer
once that afterwards took place between Mr.
Tilden and his leading hieutonentsduring all
.the time of the canal investigation and all
through the presidential campaign and suhbse
quent contest of 1876 and 1177.
When Mr. Lamont was 21 he was nominated
ry the democrats for county clerk of Cortland
county, and came within atfew votes of revers
ing a maorlty that had stood at ird Wilon the
other side.o The next year found him rmnning
for thenassmbly on tce democratic ticket. and
again he had the prize at the ends of his fln
gers. but lost it by a very few votes. That was
in 1874, and Mr. Tilden, who was then elected
governor. sent for Lamont to go to
Albany, where he rain became dep
uty clerk of the assembly. Subseq uently
he was appointed chief clerk of the
state department under Mr. John Bigelow. Hize
intimacy with Mr. Tilden still distinguished
him, and he found himself one of the young
men wham the gorernor called about him for
assistance in morking up is organization of hoe
party in the state. Others ol that body guvard
were senator David B. Boll, the late Edgar two
Apgar, Charles S. Fairchild. William A. Beach,
Horatio Sey~mour. Jr.. and William It. Smith.
Taking to politics as a duck does to water. be
busied himself in ah the campaigns that fol
lowed up to the year when he went to Washing
ton as the secretary of President Cleveland.
When the Cleveland movement first made. its
appearance in New Yorl state poll ties Lamont
was one of the men who helpe to pull the
strings, and Cleveland'r success in the nomd
nating convention. n which lie took the prize
from maen. Slocum, was largely due to the line
work of the Cortland politician, who had grad
uated under the snae of Gtammcrty Park.m
Lamont werkedery Cleveland's election pre
cisely as he had fo the previous candidates of
his party, and after the election Mr. Cleveland
sent for him to go to Buffalo. The two
spent some dany together talking of state
ffairs and politics generally and arrng-e
ing for the gathering of data at Albany
by Mr.Lamont for thel new governor's first
message. Thait was the first time Clevroela
and Lamont hadoer met. Again, before fur.
Cleveland's inauguration as governor. Mr. La

But whaen Cleveland re.ched Albany and was

to dine with him. He then said that he had
not made up his mind whom to choose for his

would not serve in thnt capacity untila perma

and a dayortwolat it was agreed that he
should keep the placre.

'oral. Mr.. Bissel has not a astional
dither as a lawyer or politician. Years ago he
was a law student under Mr. Cleveland, and'bd
has ever since been one of the ex-president'e
most devoted admirers. It was upon the advice
of Mr. Bissell that Mr. Cleveland becatoz
a candidate for mayor of Buffalo. and it
was M1r. Bissell who helped to manage trie
canvass for the ibernatorial nomination
which rendered possibleo Mr. Cleveland a's
nomination for the presidency. Mr. Bissell
is one of the leaders of the bar of western New
York. a man of fle intellect and resolute and
forceful character. He married the college
chum of Mr. Clevelandis wife, and the relations
between the two men have all along been close
and confidential.
Not long ago a newspaper corresponide.t
asked Mr: Bissell what he regarded as the so
cret of Mr. Cleveland's success,. and he prompt
ly replied: "His untiring industry and energy.

stock of hard common sense. His mind."
he continued. "is eminelntly impartial.
and he would have made a splendid
judge. As a lawyer he prepared himself
thoroughly for the trial of a case. end once

rich one on the same footing,. and he often gave
his services to those in distress without the ex

the resourceful Whitney.
It is understood that Mr. Dissell could have
had a portfolio in' the first Cleveland cabinet.
