banks of Indiana Saturday were inau
gurated president and vice president of
the United States. A few months ago
theirs were names to conjure with in
one <if the most noteworthy campaigns
in the history of American politics.
They were elected with the greatest
popular acclaim ever accorded candi
dates by the ("lectors of this republic.
Today their names again are on
every lip. The verdict of the people
rendered on November 8 was confirm

The inauguration of President Roos
evelt was made a festal ceremony in
this city. The city is a symphony in
'■olo!-. A blase of decorations greets
the eye at every turn. From every
staff the national ensign breaks to the
gentle breeze; great buildings are en
folded in the Bofi embrace of the stars
and stripes, and entire blocks are a
mass of patriotic color. Above the
while dome of the capital float im
mense American flags and from the
topmost point of the graceful granite
shaft erected in memory of the first
president, springs a single American 1
emblem a vivid splash of red, white'
and blue against the sky.

The light and airy stands, conform

At the Reviewing Stand.
The president's reviewing stand, in
front of the White House, was the
center of the court of history, which !

in great numbers from the St. Louis
The triumphal pathway, along which
the kings of the earth might have
deemed it an honor to be conducted,
was cleared and closed to cars and
vehicles at an early hour. Police man

early entered and proceeded to the
> The Grand Army o\ :he Republic, as
is its habit, insisted on acting as the
president's escort, and the president's
rate of progress to the capitol was re
d'rcri! to the pathetic pace of men who
were fast approaching the scripture
limit of life. But the delay had its
compensations. Many thousands had
opportunity to see and greet the presi
dent as his cortege slowly passed
along the miles from the White House
to Capitol hill, where congress was
concluding Its labors.
In the Senate Chamber.
The five minutes remaining at the
close of the session was given to in
augurating the vice president. The
president was escorted to a seat near
the presiding officer, where he deliv
ered brief inaugural remarks and re
peated the oeth of office after the
presiding officer, Senator Frye.
President Roosevelt led his inaugu
ral parade in quick marching time
from the capitol to the White House.
No procession in recent years has been
as prompt in moving from one end of
the avenue to the other. The troops
marched in ideal weather, the sky be
ing clear, the sun warm and a fair
breeze blowing. The president lost no
time in formalities. He descended the
steps which wer" put in place In front
of the inaugural stand and took his
carriage without reentering the eapi
tol. The inaugural march began at
1:20 o'clock and as the president's car
riage followed by that of Vice Presi
dent Fairbanks and those of the mem
bers of the cabinet proceeded through
the capitol grounds, the vast throng
hastily placed itself on either side of
the line of march and cheered without

Mr, Roosevelt, in acknowledging the
salutations from either side, rose to
his feel repeatedly and with his silk
hai in his hand bowed to right and
left. The buildings facing the capitol
grounds through which the procession
passed were occupied to their full ca
pacity with cheering people who wav
ed flags and handkerchiefs. No inci
dent marred in the slightest degree

scene <>f the inaugural address and
proceeded down past the Peace monu

The end of the parade passed the
reviewing stand at 6:13 p. m. The
president then returned to the While
House with his party.
"It was a great success, gentlemen,
and did you notice that bunch of cow
boys. Oh, they are the boys that can
ride. ()h, it was all superb. It really
touched me to the heart.'
This was the comment made by
President Roosevelt as he was leav

House, at the conclusion of the mag
nificent parade arranged in his honor.
The president had been standing for
three and a half hours reviewing the
great parade and receiving the enthu
