Washington, March, a The special
train bearing President-elect Cleveland
and party arrived at the Baltimore and
Ohio station in this city at 6:30 o'clock
last evening. An immense throng of peo
ple surrounded the station and filled the
streets on each side of it, all eager to get a
glimpse of the next president. The crowd
began to collect as early as 5 o'clock and
constantly increased until the arrival of
the distinguished party. It was rumored
that Cleveland had gotten off at the New
York avenue crossing, where he deceived
the vigilant newspaper reporters on his
honeymoon trip to Deer Park. This inti
mation, however, did not have the desired
effect of dispersing the crowd, and finally
they were rewarded by seeiu the president-elect
alight from the car and take the
arm of Colonel James Berrett, chairman
of the inaugural committee.
Sent t'p a Mighty Shout.
A mighty shout went up when Mr.
Cleveland's presence was known. Wiih
great difficulty a passageway was cleared
aud Mr. Cleveland, bowing his acknowl
edgements, made his way to a carriage
and was at once rapidly driven to the Ar
lington hotel. Assistant Chairman Xor
ris, cf the inaugural committee, t-corled
Mrs. Cleveland aud behind them was the
infant daughter in the arms of her nurse.
The party ai rived at the Arlington about
ten minutes before T o'clock. In order to
avuid the crowds that thronged Pennsyl
vania avenne an unusual route wax taken
to the hotel. After leaving the station the
little procession of carrhures passed up
New Jersey avenue to Massachusetts ave
nue and thence up K and Fifteenth .streets
to Vermont avenue. A small crowd of
people had gathered in tront of the betel to
see the party arrive. Perfect order was
maintained and there was no demonstra
tion of any kind.
Was a Palatial Train.
J'he special train that brought the president-elect
and party here was a palatial
ofce. The president-elm's car was the
H&rieutal." There is a drawing room in
t fte rear. To this are two .large bedrooms.

equipments of a private house. A smail
section adjoins the ldroon;s and op.-ns into
the dining room, lieiore the dining room
is unother small section, and then comes
the kitchen. The drawing and dining room
looked like bowers. Flowers were on every
hand. lu the center of the dining table

ruses. Beside this stood a large silver
fruit stand that was tilled with oranges,
apples, peaches, pears, and tropical fruit,

Bouquets of pink and white roses and
lillies-of-the-vsliey hung from the walls
ill the corners and in the little brackets
that decorated the sides of the car. The
profusion of roses extended out to the bed
rooms as wel!. The lumen in the drawing-room
were arranged as they were in the
dining-room. The interior is finished in
hand carved mahogany and npholstered in
silk plush of old rose tint. The curtains
at the windows are of raw silk of an oid
rose tint, with golden braid. The carpet
ing is of dull blue anil old rose. It is light

For Others of the Party.
The 'Monmouth'' and 'Baltimore" were
the cars selected for Cleveland's paitv. The
"Monmouth" is seventy-live feet long and
has a deep ol:ve green exterior. It is fin
ished inside iu quarter-sawed oak and has
a large observation room at one end with
sage green curtains and red plush uphol
stered easy chairs. The "Baltimore" is sim
ilar to the "Oriental" in size and general
plau, but is not so rich in its ornamenta
tion. It is furnished in dark red plush,
aud its exterior is also a dark red. The
party started from Lakewood at 12:10 p. m.,
the whole settlement having turned out to
see them off. The trip was uneventful.
MANY CALLERS SEND UP CARDS.
The Vice President-Elect Goes to See His
Chief Formal Courtesies.
While the Cleveland party was eating
dinner the friends of President-elect and
Mrs. Cleveland and of those who accom
panied them having heard cf their safe
nrrival in the city began to gather in the
lobbies of the hotel and send up their cards.
These were supplemented by large num
bers of members of the various political
organizations in the city, which made the
scene resemble those incident to national
conventions. The Tammanyites, in new
silk hats, were out in force. The presiden
tial party received few callers, however,
and these were confined to personal
The Tire President-lllect Calls.
One of the first to arrive was Vice President-elect
Stevenson. The meeting betw een
the t wo Democratic leaders was cordial and
hearty in the extreme. Senator and Mrs.
Vilas were among the first of those who
saw the president and Mrs. Cleveland and
Colonel and Mrs. Lamont. Colonel John
S. Vilson and Mrs. Kussell Harrison also
called. It is in accordance with official
etiquette for the president-elect to call on
the retiring president soon after the for
mer's arrival in the city. The retiring
president then returns the calL
Ofliciat Courtesies Exchanged.
After dinner the hour was too late for
Mr. Cleveland to call on his predecessor
and he deferred that duty until this morn
ing. At 10:30 o'clock today he formally
visited the White House and met the pres
ident. Within an hour after Cleveland's
call President Harrison renaird to the
Arlington hotel and formally returned the
call of the president elects This formal
exchange of courtesies in the day will be
followed this evening by a mpre informal
affair, viz: a dinner at the White House in
tionor or in iresment-eiect and Mrs,
Cleveland given by the president.
THOUSANDS ARRIVING HOURLY.
Half a Million People Expected to 8ee
the Quadrennial Show.
The capital is rapidly filling up. Every
incoming train is bringing hundreds to
witness the inauguration. It is estimated
that by this morning there were over 100,
000 strangers in the city. Then the real
rush Tand crvsh began. To enable the
trains to discharge their passengers more
quickly three sub-stations have been built
at which different sections of the various
trains will stop, thus enabling three sec
tions to unload as rapidly as one, and per
mit the switching of trains with the small
est possible delay. By sunrise tomorrow
morning this city of 250,000 will have a
population of nearly half a million.
Features of the Decorations.
The city looks very attractive. The dec
ocrations on the public buildings and on
many private houses are nearly completed.
The stars and stripes form the most con
spicuous piece of ornamentation, but
bunting of all colors abounds. The great
pillars on the treasury building are cov
ered and the roof is fringed with flags.
The big structure will be a mass of
bright color on inauguration day, and
most of the other public buildings will
present like effects. The committee
planned the decorations on a somewhat
smaller scale, bui President Harrison
when the plans were submitted to him
enlarged their scope. He desires that the
inauguration of his successor shall be an
imposing success tnd he displays as much
interest in it as though it were his own.
Grand Marshal of the Parade.
General McMahon, grand marshal of the
inaugural parade, arrived in Washington
yesterday from New York to remain till
after the great event is over. Speaking of
the prospects General McMahon said that
if the beautiful weather Washing. on is en
joying now continues until Saturday the
parade will be the greatest in the history
of the national capital. There will be 50,
000 men in line, that number having al
ready been assigned places, and it is possi
ble that an additional 10,000 will make ap
plication for position in the next few days.
All the late arrivals will le assigned to the
sixth division, which bids fair to be the
largest in the parade.
