domed capitol, gazing Into the placid
marble features of Oreenough's statue
of the first president, the twenty-sixth
president of the United State a wore
faithfully to execute the laws and to
preserve, protect, and defend th con
stitution. There were represented In the
throngs that had journeyed to the cap-
Hal to greet President Roosevelt men
from the North, South. East and West,
and from distant Islands of the seas;
from the Philippines, from Porto
Rico, from Hawaii from every land
where floats the emblem of the Re
public. In the great parade there rode
governors of states, both North and
South. The president's old rancher
friends, with lariat and chaparejos and
wiry bronchos, made strange contrast
to the stiff-backed, pouter chested
young men from the national military
schools. Rough Riders from San Juan
Hill, volunteers from Santiago, Jackles
from Manila bay shared the plaudits
of the multitude with modest, every
day soldiers, for whom the title Reg
ular Is distinction quite enough.
Political clubs from East and West,
militiamen from ' North and South,
blue-clad veterans of the sixties,
heroes of the Spanish-American war,
miner from Pennsylvania, the entire
legislature of the state of Tennessee,
the president's neighbor from Oyster
Bay all contributed to the national
character of the splendid pageant
There were waiting fur the presi
dent when he emerged from the white
house thirty picked men from the
Rough Riders under Gov. Brodle. With
the crack squadron A of the First
Cavalry. U. 8. Army, they formed his

G. A. R. with Gen. O. O. Howard and
staff in the lead, which bad been
standing at salute, wheeled Into the
column, while the raralrymen checked
'their pace to accommodate the slower
footsteps of the aged veterans. A
mighty wave of cheers swept along
the avenue as the president's carriage
came In sight. Throughout the whole
route the president, with hat In hand,
kept bowing In acknowledgment of the
greeting. On his arrival at the capi
tol he was conducted to th president's
room, in the rear cf the senate cham
ber, where he Itesaa at once the sign

tered the abode of the senate to wit

etaed on the east front of the capitol
to receive the oath from Chief Justice

dean of the diplomatic corps, mar
shaled forth the ambassadors and

Mrs. Roosevelt and Mrs. Fairbanks
were next escorted to seats Just out

dren were with Mrs. Roosevelt, and
Mr. Fairbanks' two sons, students at
Yale, and his daughter. Mrs. Adelaide
Tlmmons, were with Mrs. Fairbanks.
Mrs. Rooeevelt was gowned in a se

Mra. Fairbanks wore a beautiful dress
of brown velvet, trimmed with chiffon
and white ermine. Her hat and gloves
were also white. Vice President Fair

of the senate and followed by the sen

from the crowd. Mr. Fairbank bowed
repeatedly before taking his chair.
Secretary Ha and other member
of the cabinet were ushered to their

Billow of cheers greeted Admiral
Dewey, and the hero of Manila bay
showed that he waa pleased.
The governors of state and terri

followed in Indiscriminate fashion, and
In a short time all waa In readiness

Chief Justice Fuller, hi snowy lock
