Thursday Morning, March 9, 1905.
Last Saturday, Theodore Roose
velt was inaugurated twenty-fifth
President of United States, amid
scenes of i plendor that far out
shone all previous inaugural page
ants. Over 30,000 men were in line
and the onlookers were estimated to
be near two hundred thousand. To
grace the inaugural holiday soldiers,
sailors, citizens, Indians and Filipi
nos marched down to the Avenue.
Bands played and the dense crowds
cheered to the limit of human endur
The President reviewed the pa
rade from a beautifully constructed
stand in front of the White House,
facing the Court of History, the
-he/ d'anvrt of the feast of beauty,
*ch was the acme of the decora-
occupying the street
four blocks. Here were
the allegorical flgurei of
Wmc size and the portrait statues
from the World’s Fair, and
the bamboo masts, each crowned
with a laurel wreath and all connect
ed with graceful festoous of green
and electric bulbs, lifted their slend
er and graceful outlines 30 feel in
The President's inaugural address
was unusually abort and delivered
slowly and deliberately and with
STRIKING BKNTBNCXB VROg PRBRIDRNT'S
Toward all other nations, large
and small, our attitude must be one
of cordial and sincere frendship.
No weak nation that acts manful
ly and justly should ever have cause
to fear us, and no strong power
should ever be able to single us out
as a subject for insolent aggression.
Never before have men tried so
vast and formidable an experiment
as that of administering the affairs
of a continent under the forms of a
If we fall, the cause of free self
government throughout the world
wilt rook to its foundations.
There is no good reason why we
should fear the future, but there ia
every reason why we should fact it
seriously, neither biding from our
selves the gravity of the problems
before us nor fearing to approach
these problems with the unbending,
unflinching purpose to solve them
We have an assured confidence
that we shall be able to leave this
heritage un wasted and and enlarged
to our children and our children's
raradr in naisr.
About 30,000 men were in tbs line
Practically every Stole and Terri
tory, the Philippines, Hawaii and
Porto Rico were represented.
Gov. Ed wig Warfield, of Mary
land, commanded a military brigade,
and Gen. J. Stuart McDonald, of
Baltimore, a civic brigade.
Gen. Adna R. Chaffee, Comma tid
ing General of the United States
Army, was chief marshal.

dent Fairbanks, according to cus
tom proceeded that of the President
and ooeured in the Senate chamber.
As the hands of the great clock in
dicated the hour of IS, the President
pro tern of the Senate, Mr. Frye of
Maine, administered the oath of of
fice to the Vice-President elect.
Vice-President Fairbanks then
mounted the president's stand and
delivered a brief address, occupying
barely five minutes in so doing, al
though he spoke with great delibera
tion. When he bad *eonoluded the
newly elected Senators were sworn
in and then the entire assemblage,
including President Roosevelt and
his Cabinet, proceeded to the Inau
gural stand on the Bast front of the
Tbs procession which moved
slowly from the Senate chamber to
the stand was led by the President
and Vice-President, the foreign Am
bassadors, following. Then came the
Justices of the Supreme Court, fol
lowed by the members of the Senate
and of the House of Representatives,
then the members of the Cabinet,
followed by the members of the
Press snd they in turn by the In
In the evening the President ac
companied by Mrs. Roosevelt Miss
Alice and his military gnd naval
aides, attended the inaugural ball
in the great hall of the Pension
Building, but he did not dance,con
tenting himself with looking down
on the throng of beautifully gowned
and brilliantly uniformed
men, and responding to their salutes i
with smiles and bows. The ball
room presented a picture of excep
tional beauty with its profusion of *
flowers, its artistic arrangement of
tiny electric lights and the magnifl- I
oient assemblage which bad gather
ed to see and be seen. Through-!,
out the day there was evident thadt
spirit of good fellowship which Jsr

BT JOHN rmPlt ORAVKB.
Theodore Roosevelt is making
Democrats every day—making them
out of men who have been Republi
cans, and making over those who
have forgotten to be Democrats, or
who have been discouraged in the
hope of success.
Do not for a moment imagine that
the President can ever carry bis
old hide-bound party of privilege
and tariff-fedparasites along with
him in this Democratic way. They
are following him rather dumbly
now, because they have scarcely
gotten their breath in the astonish
ment which bis boldness and his
courage have produced. They are
afraid, too, of this young and now
untrammelled political athlete, whose
prowess and daring do not parti
cularly Invite difference or attack.
But there is a muttering all through
the ranks of the Republican party,
and the murmur will deepen to a
storm, in which the spoilsmen's
organisation will go down to defeat.
The prophets of party are already
| foretelling the speedy future In
1 which Theodore Roosevelt will
stand as Grover Cleveland did—at
outs with all the leaders of bis poli
tical army, and as a wedge to
split in twain an organisation that
has already performed its mission
and ought to be ready to die.
Nor ia the President himself to
reap the fruit* of a career which
must be unselfish becsuseil ia with
out the expectation of political re
ward. He baa definitely and dis
tinctly put behind him the desire or
expectation of another term of office.
He has pledged himself to be no
more a candidate for Presidential
honors. He cannot in honor lead
again. His party will not deserve
the credit for his popular adminis
tration. He himself is out of the
race for indorsement. By the next
national campaign the Republican
party will be split into fiercest fac
tions over the Booseveltlan reign.
The faction of corporate greed and
special privilege which furnishes
tbs money will be implacable against
a Democratic President in a Repub
lican administration. They will
stand in a phalanx for the old creeds
of protection and favoritism. There
is no compromise and no conccbslon
to be expected from them. They
will force the old craft back to its
selfish moorings and have faith In
another safe voyage to the Presiden
But there are thousands of honest
Republicans who since the war in
loyal and unquestioning faith have
followed the fortunes of the party of
Lincoln and Grant. They have kept
the faith and never broken ranks
because their traditions were set.
1 To these men Roosevelt is a revela
tlon. . He ke preaching them Demo
cracy from a Republican pulpit. Ho
, is showing them that the things
which Democrats have pleaded for
forty years, and which they have
been taught to believe would bring
ruin to the country, are good things
and righteous things and that they
can be done and ought to be done.
Those men can never be Republi
cans after the old fashion any more.
Roosevelt has opened their eyes.
They see the light of popular liber
Now, who will these men follow?
They cannot follow the spoilsman
and the trust magnate. Not all the
fat of syndicates can tempt them any
They will not have Roosevelt to
follow, for the Reform President
will not be there to lead.
What, then, but the Democratic
party is left to carry the creeds and
policies which these honest men
have been taught by a great exam
ple to respect?
If only the Democratic party shall
be true to itself and to its great
traditions. If only the Democratic
party will rise to the level of the
great opportunity which is presen
ted to it in this tremendous move
ment. If only the trimmers and
cowards and half-Repnblioana will
be quiet or quit, and give a
real Democracy free course to be
No half-hearted platform, no cum
brous platitudes, no stradnling pro
testations and no halting and uncer
tain candidate can rally the brave,
true men wbe have been liberated
and inspired by the splendid move
ments of this eventful year.
The man and the platform must
meet in a definite and aggressive
campaign. The issues must be
brief enough for every American
voter to paste in bis bat.
First— Reform the Robber Tariff.
Second—Regulate the Criminal
Third— Equalise taxation, if it
takes an income tax to do it.
Fourth —Arbitrate the differences
of labor and capital.
Fifth-r Make reasonable the house

There are many Democrats, It is
true, whose creeds aud personal in
terests will carry them to the ranks
of the old conservative party of
plutocracy and privilege.
Let them go and the sooner the
better. For the groat rank of the
Democratic army—the plain people
of America—reinforced and re
cruited by the great army whom
Roosevelt has liberated from Re
