throng as the national capital rarely

brilliant pageantry. The occasion was

Comparatively few in the great

The ride down the avenue was one

there was a larger number of represen

eastern states were rivaled in point of
attendance by reason of President
Roosevelt's great popularity in the mid

present from every one of the insular
possessions. Many of them had never
seen the capitol, and, to a large num
ber, the inauguration of a president
was wholly strange.

committees and civic societies enter

the rich caparisoning of the horses
lending themselves to a kaleidoscopic,
