Washington, March 6. There was but
little outward indication yesterday of the
quiet and sanctity which are considered as
attributes of the orthodox Sunday. The
enthusiasm aroused by the quadrennial
revolution peculiar to the American repub
lic continued with some trifling dimunition
throughout Saturday night. None of the
visitors went boms 'except those who were
impeljed to that step by necessity. When
the serious work of inducting anew admin
istration into office was completed the re
straint of discipline, was removed, the
hosts of good-natured visitors who had
bodily raptured the federal capital pro
ceeded to consult their personal preferences
aa to ways and means of enjoyment.
They Daneed the "Boom-de-ay."
Up to a late hour many clubs, preceded
by bands, paraded the streets, serenaded
their friends and found comfort in the
noise and confusion they created. When
the Pullman band struck up "On the Bow
ery" the Jfew York men, including many
Tammanyites, seized each other around the
waist and went through gyrations of the
"Boom-de-ay" dance. When the same band
played the cannibal song from Sinbad the
Iroquois men chanted the refrain. The
friends of a dignified gentleman attached
to the staff of Fi'zhugh Lee had to hold
him by main force to prevent him from
dancing a break -down when "Dixie" and
"Old Virginny" were played1
No Visiting at the White House.
The weather yesterday was lovely and
the streets were thronged with pedestrians
and handsome tumous in the way of car
riages. The first day passed by the presi
dent and Mrs. Cleveland in the executive
mansion was r f the most quiet character.
The public 'rrance remained closed, al
though constantly besieged by visitors
whose curiosity prompted them to seek ad
mittance. The only formnl caller at the
executive mansion yesterday was Judge
Gresham. The judge called shortly after
midday, paid his respects to the president
and remained to luncheon.
The Vice President and Cabinet.
Vice President Stevenson opened the day
quietly at his hotel. His daughters Mary
Julia and Letitia started on their return to
Bloomington at 1 p. m., and he saw them
off. In the afternoon the vice president re
ceived a few calls from personal friends
and at night attended Mr. Baldwin's din
ner at the Arlington. He received the
Wattersou club, of Louisville, this morn
ing at 10 o'clock. The cabinet ministers of
the new executive spent, the day very
quietly. Hoke Smith held a reception and
received the congratulations and good
wishes of many of his friends. Colonel
Lament received a number of friends in
formally. THE GREAT INAUGURAL BALL.
A Scene of Beauty Bewildering in Its
The inaugural ball which closed the fes
tivities Saturday was, in point of the num
bers which attended and the decorations of
the ballroom, the most notable society
event that ever took place at the capital.
The ballroom is the inner court of the pen
sion building. This space is 50 yards high,
100 yards long and 40 yards broad and
hardly has a rival in the world for such
affairs. It was a scene Saturday night of
bewildering magnificence. The scent of
flowers, tba combined radiance of myriad
electric globes, the dainty blending of green
and gold and white, sparkling fountains of
tinted water, perfect harmony of musical
instruments, what was to many the most
interesting fertnre of all toilets of sur
passing taste and magnificence all com
bined to make a spectacle that will be car
ried for many years in the minds of those
who witnessed it in its fulness.
An Inklins; of the Decorations.
White, gold and red were draped about
the walls of the eutire interior. Wher
ever the eye ; wandered these three colors
predominated with just enough of floral
green to make a pleasing effect. The ceil
ing, 150 feet above the throng, was a mass
of white and gold, a magnificent piece of
workmanship that elicited admiration
from all beholders. Ten thousand yards
of material were consumed in draping this
vast canopy. The stars and stripes were
everywhere; so were flowers great banks
of floral loveliness met the eye at every
turn; festoons of smilax. masses of lilies,
indeed, every flower that grows in hot
houses or elsewhere, nearly, was represent
ed. Then there were shields, banners and
every species of decorative art suitable for
the occasion. In brilliant electric light
glowed out from either end of the room
"Cleveland" and "Stevenson."
The Presidential Reception.
At 8 p. no. the dancing began and soon
hundreds of couples were engaged in the
"mazy." At 9:40 the president and Mrs.
Cleveland made a tour of the ball room.
The president led the way on the arm of
General Schofield, while Mrs. Cleveland
followed under escort of Justice Gray, of
the supreme court. Following them came
Colonel and Mrs. Daniel S. Lamont, Mr.
and Mrs. Wilson S. Bissell, with their
daughters-in-law, Mr. Hoke Smith, Mr.
and Mrs. J. Sterling Morton, Mr. and Mrs.
Kichard Watson Gilder, Mr. and Mrs. E. C.
Benedict, Miss Benedict and a number of
others. . f r.i
Ten Thousand People Present.
There were 40,000 on the floor by this,
time, and there was some difficulty in clear
ing a passage, for the nartr. There was
great lnteret in Airs. Cleveland, and the
crush to get a glimpse of her was immense.
As soon as t He tour of the room had been
made the p trty retired to the rooms pre
pared for th'-ru and which were beautifully
decorated, a id there received a large num
ber of prom iuent people. The vice presi
dential par;ty arrived at 10 p. m., and
made a similar tour, and also held a recep
tion afterwards. Other people on the floor
who attracted marked attention were ex
Speaker Ketd, Governor Russell, and Gov
ernor Flower. The Cleveland left about
10.30 and the Stevensons somewhat later.
The ball clot-ed precisely at il o'clock.
Some of the Costumes.
The gowns worn by the prominent ladies
at the ball were triumphs of the dressmak
er's art. That worn by Mrs. Cleveland
was made heavy white satin, empire
front and tig it fitting back. It was richly
trimmed wit h point lace and embroidered
with crystal beads.
Mrs. Stevenson's gown was a combina
tion of cream and heliotrope, of moire an
tique and vc lvet. The skirt and corsage
were of cream moire.
Miss Stev nson wore pink chiffon em
broidered in colors over pink silk. Miss
Julia Stevemon white bengaline with full
puffed elbow sleeves of rainbow satin and
pear pessementeries. Miss Letitia Steven
son, yet a school girl, wore a Josephine
gown of turquoise blue faille and lace.
Mrs. Carlisle's gown was of superb bro
cade, in which pinkish mauve shades pre
dominated. The train, a very long and
full court t-ain. The waist elegantly
trimmed with point lace aud gold and seed
Mrs. Lamont was attired in a gown with
an old gold Rf tin front, the back brocaded
with terra co ta stripes. The sleeves wer
puffed, of vei vet, to match the color iu the
SUMMARY OF THE INAUGURAL.
Salient Points of the Address Delivered
t. by Cleveland.
Washixgtc n, March li. The following is
a comprehersive synopsis of President
Cleveland's ir augural address, covering the
pith of what he said referring to the policy
of the new ttdniinistration. The address
begins by dec aring that there are "certain
conditions aid tendencies among our peo
ple which seem to menace the, integrity and
usefulness of -heir government." Of these
the first is "tie exposure of a sound and
stable currency to degradation," and this
peril is of a character that "should arouse
to activity th most enlightened statesman
ship." He premises to exercise every execu
tive power, "deemed necessary to maintain
our national credit or avert financial dis
aster. " t
Protection and the IVnsions.
"Another danger that confronts us and
is not less serious," he describes as "the
prevalence of a popular disposition to ex
pect from the operation of the government
especial and u rect individual advantages.''
The verdict of the voters, he says, has con
demned the maintenance of protection for
protection's ske; and it also demands the
drstruction ol the whole "progeny of pater
nalism." This destruction requires "a re
fusal of bour.'ies and subsidies to aid ill
advised or languishing enterprises" and "a
challenge of vild and reckless pension ex
penditure" wit h the limit of public appro
priations to the public necessity.
Against the Spoilsman and the Trust.
He holds also that appointments to office,
"instead of bt ing the rewards of partisan
activity," should be bestowed on those
"whose efficiency promises a fair return of
work for the compensation paid them." He
commends the good accomplished by civil
service reform and the further usefulness
it promises. Still another peril he finds
in "immense i ggregations of kindred en
terprises and c mbinations of business in
terests, formec for the purpose of limiting
production and fixing prices," and these he
pronounces to be conspiracies against the
interests of the people and in all their
phases unhati.ral. He says that they
khould be "reac hed and restrained by fed
eral power," so far as the general govern
ment can reach them.
Tariff and Rights of Citizenship.
As to the tariff, changes in it, says the
president, mils', lie made, "wisely and with
out vindictiven ess" and on the principle
that "the necese ity for revenve to support
the government furnishes the only justifi
cation for taxing the people." He adds that
I "anxiety for the redemption of the pledges
' which my party has made and solicitude
' for the complete justification of the trust
' the people has reposed in us, constrain me
to remind those with whom I am to co
operate that we can succeed in doing the
work which has been especially set before
us only by the most siucere, harmonious,
and disinterested effort. Even if failure is
caused by ins iperable obstacles it will
hardly be excu:d, and if caused by fault
or neglect the people will hold us to a swift
and exacting accountability." He --also
touches on tho color line, saying: "The
rights of citizenship should be protected,
without regard to race or color" and the
Indians should lie led to civilizations.
Legisla'lon for Wisconsin.
Madison, Maith 6. The senate judiciary
committee has reported favorably a resolu
tion for the submission of a constitutional
amendment which would repeal the city

Atlanta, Ga., March 6. The reports
from the center of a cyclone disturbance of
Friday night shows that the great desti
tution caused will call for relief. Many of
the cyclone sufferers are in a destitute con
dition, having been rendered houseless and
homeless by the wind without a vestige of
clothing excent the garments they had on
their backs. They were exposed to the
biting cold. Starvation stares some of
them in the face. A meeting held iu
Greenville appeals for assistance, giving
out the statement that "the facts are brief
but terrible. The town is now a scene of
desolation, many of her elegant homes as
well as humble cottages are destroyed and
numbers of families are destitute, penni
less and homeless.
Heller Must Come Quickly.
"Four of her churches and her beautiful
college have been leveled to the dust. This
is a calamity which cannot be relieved by
the sufferers falling back upon insurance
companies, but relief must come, if it conies
at all, from the promptings of a Christian
beneficence and human pity and generos
ity It is to such sentiments in the bosoms
of our fellow citizens of every kind that
The Dead Left in the Track.
The following localities felt the terrific
blast: Greenville, Miss., one man killed;
Rock, Ga., five persons killed; Troup coun
ty, Ga., Mrs. Butts, Cullen Fannin, James
F. Hairston and Sam Henderson and wife,
dead; Barnesville. Ga., Daisy Hawkins and
two negro children killed; Odessa, six
deaths; Molena, Ga., Mrs. Fell and four
negroes killed; Piedmont, Ga., Mrs. Haw
kius killed and her parents badiy hurt. In
the vicinity of Meriuian, Marion, and Cor
inth, Miss., thirteen lives are reported lost,
but some of these may have been men
tioned above. At Toosumba, Miss., forty
eight houses were blown down and several
ptt'pie hurt. Everywhere the destruction
of property was appalling.
Eight Miles of Devastation,
Details of the names of the dead and
wouuded are meagre. In Troup county the
cyclone swept away nearly all the farm
houses, scattering all their supplies. A
man who returned from the storm-swept
regions says: "We followed the track of
the monster eight miles and noted nothing
but complete devastation and destruction.
1 he loss fall heavily on the farmers and
the ioor negroes, and a subscription will be
m ule up here to help those who have lost
everything. It was terrible to witness the
sufferiuKs as we went along. People here
ana ti.ere, white and black, were gather
ing up their liedding and cooking utensils
Hiu what provisions ' could be found scat
tered over the hills. So complete was the
(ietructiou that it is stated that there was
not enough dry cloth iu Piedmont to hind
the wouuus of the suffering."
Nine Iiu at I'arnell Station.
Nine bodies have been recovered from
the wreckage at Paruell station, thirty
miles south of Meridiun, on the Queen and
Crescent railway, seven of them being
members of the family of Samuel Barnett.
The destruction to property grows greater
with every report. The number of injured
is gi-cal aud the probabilities are that half
hus not been told. It Is impossible to give
a complete list. At Greenville the greatest
damage was done. Great suffering is re
ported from there. The center of the town
is completely demolished. Half of the
houses of the town have been razed to the
ground. That there was no greater loss of
life is remarkable.
A TOWN SLIDING INTO THE SEA.
Sandgate, Kuglanil, Experiences a Re
London-, March 6. Late Saturday night
the people of Saudgate. county of Kent,
were aroused by the rocking of the houses
aud loud rumblings underground. Walls
split, ceilings fell, foundations sank and
roofs caved in. As the inhabitants fled to
the streets they found large holes in the
ground and were altndst overcome by nox
ious vnpors. Everybody supposed that the
town wa being shakni by an earthquake,
and as the rnmliling continued hundreds
fled in a panic to the nearest towns. When
the rumbling ceased it was found that the
sreund had unk several feet.
Cmma of the Phenomenon.
Many cottages had been wrecked com
pletely, and the better built had been
cracked and thrown out of plumb, so that
they could not be ocenpied with safety.
Nevertheless many of the inhabitants re
turned to the house toward morning. Be
tween 3 and tt o'clock, however, they were
frightened away by further subsidence of
the ground and the recurrence of the rum
bling. Tue disaster was caused by a land
slide. The town is built upon a compara
tively low cliff close to the sea. The waves
are believed to. have undermined the cliff,
which then settled and slipped toward the
water, carrying with it the town. Two
hundred houses were destroyed.

Laxsixo, March 6. There was an un

Tateum replied hotly and continued to
talk in an undertone when Ewing shouted
that he could "lick" any man who called
him a "dirty pup," etc. Friends interfered
to prevent a fight. Tateum is also in
trouble with the Democrats. He refused
to permit protests against legislation char
acterized by the Democrats as "viciously

Barkworth has determined to apply to the

lation. "My Country, 'Tis of Thee," groans
for Hatch, "Marching Through Georgia,"
"Hang Miller Washburn ou a Sour Apple
