Notables in the Chamber.
The senate chamber had by this time
been prepared for the ceremony. The
galleries were full of the distinguised men
and women of the land. The senators
occupied the Kepublican side, aud the
notables of ofliciallife the Democrat s side.
There was the diplomatic corpa
resplendent in gold lace and uniforms: the
supreme conrt members in their cowns;
the members of the house; the families of
the president aud vice president and those
of their successors, department chiefs and
others. Vice President Morton called the
senate to order and the anounccment was
made that the president had no further
communication to make to congress the
closing act of the outgoing adiiiinstration.

Theu the announcement was made "The
president of the United States" and Mr.

CLEVELAND EOYS ARE MARCHING.
Gathering of the Clan and Trot-etnion to
It was about. !1 a. tn. when President
Harrison and President-elect Cleveland en
tered the carriage of the former at the
White bouse to driv? t. th? Capitol.
All the morning fZ-K S
there had been ' x J V f -3S
marching to and
fro of the mi!i
tary and other
organ i z a t i a n s
which were to
take part iu th
day's work. On
every hand was
beard the rattle
of the drum, the
call of the bugle,
the strains of the
bands and the
words of com
mand. But those
who were to teredet comes! tvhoop!
man n were not lh only ones outdoors.
From the hotels, where some of the guests
had to pay good prices for a nail or clothes
hook to hang themselves up for the night
nd where a bath-tub was a real palace of
a bedroom, from the boarding houses,
which were equally full, from the trains,
which were constantly unloading thou
sands of visitors, and from the private resi
dences of the city, came the multitude.
I'acked Along Pennsylvania Avenue.
The great avenue at the end of which is
the Capitol and at the other end the White
House was a sight to behold once in a life
time. Except for a passage wide enough
to permit troops to march company front
there was not an inch of the thoroughfare
unoccupied by a human form by 10 o'clock.
At the street intersections the crowd spread
away to the right or left as far as the next
corner. The lamp posts were not over
looked as points of vantage for those active
enough to climb them, while trees within
sight of the avenue were alive with boys
and men. Around the White House and
Capitol building there was a dense throng.
In windows and on roofs aud porticoes
at every point from which the line of march
could be overlooked were the faces and
forms of sightseers. '
'The Conquering Hero Comes.
Mr. Cleveland had risen early. At about
10 o'clock he left the hotel for the White
House aud on arriving there having been
cheered during the whole route he re
ceived another great cheer as he was seen
on the portico, where President Harrison
raet Uini and e-corted him through the
door. ' Outside aides were riding hither
and thither, marshaling the escort aud
getting everything ready for the start.
At last all was prepared as.d atrain the two
statesmen appeared iu the White House
portico. Their again was the air rent with
cheers as tht two distinguished gentleman
took their seats in the ooen carriage ac-
coiiiiiaiiicii i.y niemri -r ot the secate com
mittee of arrMgement.
The Vive t'resftleiit-Klrct.
Mr. S:evet,sou had also driven to the ex
ecutive mansion attended by cheering
crowds, and receiving all along
the line a flattering ovation, and now he
appeared with others of the arrangements
committee and took seats in another open
carriages. His appearance was the .signal
for another outburst ot cheers. In other
carriages were seated the balance of the
congressional committee of arrangements,
members of the cabinet. Major General
Scholield and Admiral Gherardi. The line
of carriages passed out of the White liouse
grounds to the junction of Kxecutive ave
with Pennsylvania avenue, where the es
corting division was drawn up, consisting
of infantry, cavalry and artillery. Headed
by Grand Marshal McMahon the carriages
passed to the front, the military saluting,
the troops whirled into line and the march
to the Capitol was beeun.
CEREMONIES IN THE CAPITOL-
Inauguration of the Vice President Scene
in the Senate Chamber.
The cheer which broke forth at the ap
pearance of the president and his successor
was continuous from
the mansion to the
Capitol. But neither
gentleman paid any
attention thereto by
bowing or other ac
course being a part
of the courtesies of
the occasion. In
half an hour the head of the procession had
arrived at the senate approach of the Capi

F niton e J bj t Iu; Acclaim of a Vast Throng;,
the Chief Art of the Day Occur.
It was a vast sea cf fares that witnessed
fiie emergence of the distinguished body
that now streamed out on the east porch of
the capitol. Seats had been put up for tha
late occupants of the senate chamber and
a stand built well out in front for the cere
mony of taking the oath. As the president
and president-elect appeared leading tba
column the multitude burst forth in a
cheer that rent the heavens and it was
some time before silence fell over the
throng There was another roar as the
president-elect stepped forward to deliver
the inaugural address. He spoke, as he
always does, slowly and distinctly, but it
was only a few of that vast crowd who
could hear his words. He spoke without
manuscript and his address was short.
An Outline of the Address.
The address did not enter into detail on
the questions the administration will have
to meet and solve. It touched in a general
way on tariff, leaving to future messages
the more careful elaboration of that mat
ter. It was the same with the monetary
question, the tenor of the address being in
line w ith the speaker's well-known views.
The question of annexation, with an in
ferred direct reference to Hawaii, occupied
a promiuent, placa. On this point the ad
dress disapproved of any action in the mat
ter until after careful inquiry; not inquiry
after annexation. It favored annexing the
Pacific isiauds in case an examination of
both sides of the question shows that such
a course is desirable and expedient. Re
form in the pension office occupied consid
erable space, and the alleged frauds perpe
trated cn the pension list were condemned
severely. In this matter a sweeping re.'orm
CIoMOg Art of the Ceremony.
Again the throng went wild and the
cheers continued so long that finding it
useless to wait for silence the president
elect turned to Chief Justice Fuller and
announced his readiness to take the oath,
and amid a roar t hat almost madethewords

Thrilling ami I'proarious Scene.
The multitude could not hear what was
going on, but they could see, and as the
president's hand fell to his side the cheers
broke out with redoubled volume a roar
that waxed and waned and waxed again;
that was taken up by. those who were con
gregated on the side streets and away out
of sight of the actors in the ceremony, and
again taken up by throng after throng
until the whole city seemed to have burst
forth in cheers. That which finally
abated the tumult was the movement of
the president and others from the stand,
and the single gun, following the salute,
which announced that the time for the pro
cession back to the White House had ar
rived. " FOUR YEARS MORE FOR GROVER."
Order of t1ti rniade Hack to the Incen
tive Mansion Inauguration Notes.
Before lea. ing the stand the president
was nearly overwhelmed with congratula
tions. He escaped from his "pleasant pei
secut ion," however, in a few minutes and
went into the. Capitol. Here he took a
"hasty plate of soup," and then was ready
to take ids place iu the precession which
was to escort hint to his home for the next
four yet. rs. In the meantime the line had
been fi rmed and everything was ready for
the gun which was to announce the start.

presidential party, still accompanied by ex
President Harris in, took their places in
carriages and in the line near the head and
