Amid the cheers of hundreds of en thusiastic Democrats, the waving of flags, the booming of cannon and the patriotic strains of "The Star Spangled Banner," George H. Hodges, of Ola the, was inaugurated at noon today as the nineteenth governor of Kansas. It was an impressive and dignified cere mony. Added to the importance of the occasion was the fact that Hodges is the first Democrat to take the oath as governor of Kansas since the day that John W. Leedy was inaugu rated in January, 1897 just 16 years ago. For the first time in many years so long ago in fact that the veteran politicians have forgotten the date there was an inaugural parade. Hun- j dreds of men prominent in the politi- i cal affairs and the public life of Kan sas rode in the carriages behind the bands and the display of military pomip and splendor. Along either side of Kansas avenue from Fourth street to Tenth avenue, hundreds of men. wo men and children forgot the chilly Jan uary breeze and cheered as the mem bers of the new state administration passed in review. At the state house there-was anoth er big crowd. Again there was cheer ing as George H. Hodges, the new governor, and Walter Roscoe Stubbs, the retiring chief executive of Kansas, stepped from the same carriage and walked side by side up the west steps and through the corridors of the build ing to Representative hall.

Waggener, slated lor the chairmanship of the judiciary committee, is not only the oldest law yer in the legislature and a most wide ly known rough and tumble legislative fighter, but he is recognized as a man with a very sympathetic heart. Even in the 1903 session, Waggener's talent and ability were recognized when he was made chairman of the judiciary committee in a Republican senate. For his fair and impartial service. members of both parties showed their recognition. At the close of the ses sion, the Democrats placed a silk flag over the Atchison man s desK and tne Republican members presented Wag gener with a gold headed cane. But speaking of Waggener's sympa thetic nature, this characteristic little story is being told in the hotel lobbies concerning the Atchison lawyer: Last week a rather thinly clad, mid dle aged woman walked timidly down the lobby of the National hotel until she came to the chair in which the well known Democratic leader eat smoking a cigar. "I believe this is Senator Waggen er?" asked the woman. "Yes, madam," said Waggener, as he arose from his chair and tipped his hat; "sit down. What can I do for you?" Then the woman related a story of hardship and privation. She came of a family once well known in Atchison county, Last ran ner nusoana aiea.

At almost every step there was the middle west during the past two Eome new eviueuce ut me pent up en thusiasm of Kansas Democracy which had returned to its own after almost two decades. Democrats Had Waited for This Hour. There was nothing within the gift of the state and her most loyal and patriotic citizens which was left un done in the ceremonies of the day. For two months Kansas Democrats had waited for this hour. At last it had come. So why should the buried and almost lost enthusiasm be denied an outlet at this time? And no one denied or questioned the right of the party leaders to make the most of the event. In fact in the demonstration which marked the minute that Hodges as cribed to his oath and solemnly vowed to observe the commandments of the constitution and the laws of the state, the other events which carried before the crowd's eyes the oath to other state officers was but a passing detail which led to an event of which Demo crats had for 16 years dreamed only to awake and see come true. Tet in those oaths to other officials, the crowd was not forgetful. It was a day of gladness, so why should not the ordinary courtesies be extended to the other state officials? And it was. For each man as he walked to the speak er's stand and renewed or for the first time affirmed his solemn alle giance to that sacred oath, there was a generous applause. But it was purely a Democratic day and a Democratic inauguration. To be sure Republicans and Progressives and Democrats rode in the parade be hind the bands and the companies of artillery, infantry and cavalry, and of course the majority of men inaugu rated were in overwhelming Republi- years.

I commend the good people of Kan sas who made this possible, and who by their suffrage have maintained the high standard of progressiveness that Kansas has always enjoyed both in commercial and agricultural affairs. This year, at a single stride, she leads that great progressive political revolution, th .t swept this nation over and made that splendid statesman, WoodTow Wilson, president-elect of these United States. Our common wealth maintained in this as in all things the unquestioned leadership we have hitherto enjoyed. A complete change has been made In the control of the legislative and ex ecutive departments of state. Unques tionably the people will expect and de mand more of a new administration than from the administration of men whose party is continued in power. Those Platform Pledges.

The committee nominated for the five directorships expiring in 1913, the incumbents: Messrs. Charles H. Clark, Hartford Courier; Charles A. have onlv 35 cents left. "What can you do?" asked Wag gener as he studied the face before him, "I can scrub or wash, but I do not write very well you know, and I fear I couldn't hold a clerical position." Something in the woman's tone or manner appealed to waggener ana ne was deeply touched. "I don't know what can be done," said Waggener. "but if I have enough power with this legislature to control one place, you win get it.. Then as the woman thanked him, Waggener slipped a $5 bill into her hand. An hour later a young woman, stylishly dressed sought Waggener's time for a brief conference. "Senator, I want you to help me land a position in the senate," she said.

Archbald of the com merce court that he had wrongfully In fluenced Erie Railroad officials to grant him an option on the Katydid Culm Dump. Conviction on the other 12 charges is not necessary to remove Judge Archbald from the bench. The vote on tbe first -count was 61 against Judge Archbald and five In his favor. The senate then proceeded to vote on the other 12 articles of the im peachment. Judge Archbald's attorneys and the managers for the house entered the chamber as the Impeachment court convened, but Judge Archbald was not with them. Mrs. Archbald occupied a place in the gallery. Senator Rout pro posed that the question of Judge Arch bald's guilt should bo submitted In this form: "Senators, How say you. Is the re spondent, Robert W. Archbald, guilty or not guilty of the charge contained ln this article." The order adopted by the senate pro vided that each senator should rise in his place as his name was called and answer "guilty" or "not guilty." Several Excused From Voting. Before the first article of impeach ment was read. Senator Kern, of In diana; Senator Dillingham, of Vermont, and Senator Bradley, of Kentucky, asked to be excused from voting be cause they had not been present throughout the trial. I They were excused. Senator Clarke, of Arkansas, was excused from voting on all articles which charged Judge I Archbald with wrongful acts before he I was elevated to the commerce court. Senator Tillman was excused from voting on all articles except the first and Senator Jackson, of Maryland, was excused from voting on all articles. He entered the senate since the trial be gan.

Although the verdict insured Judge Archbald's removal from the bench, and the service of the United States courts, the senate then proceeded to vote on the other 12 counts of the ar ticles of impeachment which charged various other acts where Archbald had improperly used his Influence as a judge. At his trial the accused Judge admitted practically all the facts on every accusation brought against him but protested in defense that none of them was wrongful or corrupt and that he could not have been convicted in any court of law for them. The impeachment proceedings against Judge Archbald were started early la 1912,- when complaint was made to ths Interstate commerce commission and later to Attorney General Wickersham, and President Taft that Judge Arch bald had been concerned In Influencing railroads to grant him certain favors In connection with coal lands deals and the settlement of cases involving coal properties.
