Helena, March 4.-The bi-partisan
senatorial combine completed its
triumph in the house today \vhcn, on
third reading, the Wibaux and Clay
county bills were passed, each with a
substantial majority.
Kirschwing and ])urkan of Cascade
and Kelly of Custer were among those
who appealed to the democratic ma
jerity not to repudiate the democratic
administration in this political debt
paying business. As yesterday, how
ever, their appeals were in vain. The
fiat of the senatorial combine had
gone forth for the passage of these
bills, and there was no resisting its

Morning Session.
Little headway was made in the
house this morning, compensation and
the division of the state into con
gressional districts consuming most of
the time.
Majority and minority reports were
presented on S. B. 99, by Abbott, di
viding the state Into congressional dis
tricts. The majority recommended
concurrence after the bill was amend
ed to place Teton in the western dis
trict, and Gallatin in the, eastern dis
Mains objected to the substitution,
on the grounds that the eastern dis
trict was exclusively agricultural, and
the western district almost wholly de
voted to horticulture and mining, and
that Teton wanted to remain in the
agricultural district.
Stewart also objected to the major
ity report.
Annin explained that the amendment
vas made because the bill In its origi
nal form gave the, western district a
population of 21,000 more than the
eastern district, while if Teton were
placed in the western, and Gallatin in
the eastern, the difference was re
duced to f.00O persons.
Thie minority report recommending
the hill for concurrence, without
emendmnnt was adopted 1y a rising

Wife and Daughters of New Executive Dance With Joy as
He Takes the Oath and Pronounces It a Day of
Dedication, Not of Triumph---Vice President Is
Sworn In in the Senate Chamber
"This is not a day of triumph; it is a day of dedication. Hlere muster, not the forces of party, but the forces of
humanity. Men's hearts wait upon us; men's lives hang in the balance; men's hopes call upon us to say what we
will do. Who shall live up to the great trust? Who dares fail to try? I summon all honest men, all patriotic,
all forward-looking men, to my side. God helping me, I will not fail them, if they will but counsel and sustain me!"
Washington, March 4.-Woodrow Wilson of New Jersey was inaugurated today as president of the United States,
and Thomas R. Marshall of Indiana, its vice president.
Under the dome of the nation's capitol in the presence of a countless, cheering concourse of his fellow citizens, the
new president raised a hand toward a prophetic sun that burst through dissolving clouds, and pronounced the occa
sion of aday of dedication, not of triumph.
It was an intensely human, precedent-breaking inauguration. With members of his chosen cabinet surrounding
him, the justices of the supreme court before him, his wife and daughters actually dancing for joy on the platform
below and William Howard Taft, ex-president of the nation, at his side, the new president shouted a summons to 11
"honest, patriotic, forward-looking men" to aid him, extending the promise that he would not fail them in the guid
ance of their government.
While the president's concluding inaugural words were tossing in tumultuous waves of applause, the retiring presi
dent clasped his hand and enlisted as a patriotic servant in the ranks of private citizenship.
"Mr. President," said Mr. Taft, his face beaming with a broadening smile, "I wish' you a successful administration
and the carrying out of your aims. We all will be behind you."
"Thank you," said President Wilson and he turned to shake the hand of his secretary of state, William Jennings
Notable Group.
There they stood-Taft, standard-bearer of a vanquished party after 16 years of power; Bryan, persistent plodder of
progressive democracy, thrice defeated, accepting a commission from a new chieftain, and Wilson, the man of the
hour, victorious, mustering, as he expressed it, "not the forces of party but the forces of humanity."
It was a political picture far beyond imaginings of a few years gone by, a setting that stirred the souls of the assem
bled hosts, whose cheering at the scene seemed actually to reverberate among the distant Virginia hills.
The military and civic pageant that followed this climax of the historic day was more than five hours passing in re
view. Leaving Capitol hill at 2 o'clock in the afternoon, the last of the marching thousands had not doffed their
colors to the president in the court of honor until long after darkness had fallen.
President Wilson stood for more than an hour under the glare of myriads of brilliant electric lights as he greeted
thousands in the long line, among them the host of Princeton students, who, as they passed before him, shouted a
hearty greeting that he never can forget.
The music of bands, the glitter of uniforms and all the enthusiasm in the pageant that had gone before had stirred
him again and again, but the sight of his cheering student army was to President Wilson an inspiration that brought
cherished memories and joyous tears. Not long after the boys from Old Nassau had passed, he turned from the
human panorama and entered the White House to grasp the wheel of the shin of state.
rWashington, March 4.-Vice Presi
dent Marshall's inaugural address was
as follows:
"Thu proprieties of this occasion

people for the honor heretofore done
