CROWDS FILL THE CITY
Deneen and Successor, With
Wives, Ride in Parade in
(S-peclal to The Argus.)
Springfield, 111., Feb. 3. Hope de
ferred did not make the heart sick
in the belated inauguration of Judge
Edward F. Dunne as governor of Illi
nois today. While the three weeks'
suspense doubtless had Its effect in
detaining many who would otherwise
have attended, thousands of democrats
came from all sections of the state,
and enthusiasm was not dampened by
reason either of the delayed cere
mony or the condition of the weather.
In ail that attended the coming of
Governor Dunne into office democratic
simplicity prevailed. The parade was
devoid of military display, the first
time within the history of the state
capital for a generation at least that
such a thing has happened.
It was just au ordinary procession,
distinguished In Its appearance only
by the presence of the retiring gov
ernor and the incoming executive and
their wives, riding In an open carriage,
who, with the other democratic Btate 1
omcer&-6. and their escorts, lent
dignity' to the occasion. It was a
plain affair, so plain as to be Impres
sive. Simple dignity . characterized
the Inaugural exercises fn represent-!
tlves' hall in the rapitol. The passing
of power from the hands of one great
pclitica" party to anoJLhgr was nlmost
without incident, save ' the political
, Fign'fleance that attached. There was
j no display and no triumphant acclaim,
i It was left lo deeds rather than words
to prove the wisdom of the people In
giving sanction to the advent of the
HF.VI1MH.II OF AI.TKEl.n.
There was a reminder of Altgeld in
Governor Dunne's inaugural. The j
policies and pledges proclaimed 20 i
years before were heard again with '
renewed purpose and earnestness. Gov-
ernor Dunne tpoke for the progressive
ideals of democracy. He spoke for
economy In the administration of the
affairs of the commonwealth, and he
spoke for honesty in the people's be
half. He spoke for the principles on
which he was elected and he voiced
his own convictions. With manifest
courage, honesty of heart and sincere
I endeavors he entered upon his great
aim re&jioiimuie uubies.
There will be no purpose to circum
vent the will of the democratic voters
of the state In the choice of a United
States senator. The talk to the con
trary is "bunk" pure and simple.
There has been no such design. Col
onel James Hamilton Lewis will be
elected for the long term, or no one
will be elected.
Charles Boeschensteln is a candi
date for the short term. In so an
nouncing he had made it plain that
he would not accept the full term, even
if he could win it. He declares with
all good democrats that Colonel Ivewls
Is not only entitled to It, but has all
but the legal right to it by virtue of
the primary as well as the general
ie'ectlon. So there Is nothing on the
: pend two democrats to Washington
, t0 represent the state of Illinois In
! the United States senate.
