Washington, March 4.
At the Arlington Hotel, only a block across
Lafayotte Square from the White House, were
the new tenants of the mansion of tho Execu
tive. President narrlson and wife, Bnssell Harrison
and wife, Mr. and Mrs. and Baby McKee and
Mr. and Mrs. and Miss nalford were here.
Geq. Harrison arose at 7 o'clock and ate a
scanty breakfast In the private dining-room.
There were signs of agitation in his face, and
he gripped his cigar In his clinobed teeth with
the air of a man riding to battle.
The ladles of the party talked nothing but
weather In his absence, but when he was pres.
ent, with rare tact, Mrs. Harrison talked on
more cheerful topics.
At the White House all was qulot till 8 o'clock.
Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland and Mr. Folsom at

they returned they found 200 people about the

Bhe was clad from head to foot in mourning
black, the soft glow of her cheek making her
more than usually attractive. Aashe passed
through between the rows of curious eyes, a
rough-voiced man said in a hoarse whlspex:
"There's a lady for' you I Ain't she pretty t".
The tone was of admiration, and an Eyeximo

passed on.
Mr. Cleveland followed h'is fair young wife,
and the reporter experienced a feeling of shock
as he noted the haggard look of the President,
tho unelastiostep and deathly gray of tile
face. It was forcibly remindful or the sear and
ashen face of Daniel Manning aa the over

months ago.

land emerged from that same doorway again
this morning, and, entering that same coach,
were driven to the house of Beeretary Falrchild.
They will not partlolpate in any way In the
festivities of the day. They will be the ouests
of Mrs. Falrchild for a few days, and then will
go to New York, where theIr future home will be.

early morning that the sun wonlddoits'duty,

Theie was a short struggle between the sun
and the wind and rain and then the clouds
closed in again and the drizzlo was renewed.
It is one of those exasperating drizzles whloh
seem to be effortless and purposeless, but the
Scotch mist continues to pervade everything.

o'clock was the hour named, the galleries of the
Senate were thrown open to a privileged few aa

At so early an hour the Senate was in recess,
and only the empty ohairssnd a few watchful

At 10 o'clock, when the outside door were

There was tho most undignified scramble for

There 1 no constitutional or legal requiremen
that the President shall take the oath of office in
tb presence of the people. But there Is so
manifest an appropriateness in the public Indue

the naton that from the beginning of the Gov.

oath eonsecraU an officer, have been called to
witness the lolemnCeeremonlaL

nants to serve the wholo body or the people by a
faithful execution of the laws, so that they may
be an unfailing defense and security of those
who respect and obfervo them, and that neither
wealth, station nor power of combinations shall
be ablo to evade their just penalties, or to
wrest them from arbcncflcent'publlc purpose to
serve the onds of cruelty or selfishness.
My promiso ia spoken, yours unspoken, but
not less real and solemn. The people of every
Stato have hero their representatives. Surely
I do not misinterpret iho spirit of tho occasion
when I assume that the whole body of the peo
ple covenant with mo and with each other, to
day, to support and defend tho Constitution
and the Union of State, to yield willing obo
dlenco to all laws, and each to every other citi
zen his equal civil and political rights.
Entering thus solemnly Into a covenant with
caeh other, we may reverently invoke and con.
fidently expect tho favor and help of Almighty
God, that ha will give to mo wisdom, strength
and fidelity, and to our people a spirit of frater
nity and a love of righteousness and peace.
This occasion derives peculiar interest from
the fact that the Presidential term which begins
this day la the twenty-sixth under our Constitu
tion. The first inauguration of President Washing
ton took place in New York, whore Congress was
then sitting, on the 30th day of April, 1780,
having been deferred by reason of delays at.
tending the-organization of Congress and the
canvass or tho electoral vote.
Our people have already worthily observed the
centennial or the Declaration or Independence,
or tho battle of Yorktown and of tho adoption of
the Constitution, and they will shortly celebrate

department of our constitutional Bchenje of gov
When the centennial of the Institution of the
Judicial Department by the organization of the
Supreme Court shall havo been sulubly ob
served, an I trust it will be. our nation will have
fully entered its second contury.
I will not attempt to note the marvellous and.
In great part, happy contrast between our
country as it steps over tho threshhold Into its
second century of organized existence under the
Constitution and that weak but wlsoly ordered
young nation that looked undauntedly down
the first century, when all it years stretched
out before it.
Our people will not fail at this time to recall
the incidonts which accompanied the institution
of the Government under tho Constitution or to
find Inspiration and guidance In the teachings
and example of Washington and his great asso.
dates, and hope and courage In tho contrast
which thirty-eight populous and prosperous
States offer to the thirteen Statos;weak in every,
thing except courage and love of liberty, that
then fringed our Atlantic seaboard.
The Territory of Dakota has now a population
greater, than any of the original States, except
Virginia, and greater than the aggregate of flvo
of the smaller States in 1700.
Tho centre of population, when our National
Capital was located, waa east of Baltimore, and
it was argued br many well-Informed person
that it would move eastward rather than west-
ard. Yet In 1880 It was found to be near Cin
cinnati, and the new census about to be taksn
will show another stride to the westward.
That which waa the body has come to be only
the rich fringe of the nation's robe.
But our growth ha not been limited to terri
tory, population and aggregate wealth, mar
vellous as it has been In each of those directions.
The masses or our people aro better fed.
clothed and housed than their fathers were.
The facilities for popular education have been
vastly enlarged and more generally diffused.
The virtues of courage and patriotism have
given recent proof of their continued presence
and increasing power in the hearts aud over the
lives of our people.
The influences of religion have been multi
plied and strengthened. The tweet offices of
charity have groatly Increased. The virtue or
temperance is held in higher estimation.
We have not attained an Ideal condition. Not
all of our people are happy and prosperous; not
all of them are virtuous and law-abiding, but,
on the whole, the opportunities offered to the
individual to secure the comfort or life are bet
ter than are found elsewhere, and largely better
than they were hero one hundred year ago,
The surrender of a large measure of sover
eignty to the General Government, effected by
the adoption of the Constitution, waa not aooom
pllshed until the suggestions of reason were
strongly reinforced by the more Imperative
voice of experience.
Tta divergent interest of peace speedily de
manded a " more perfeot union."
The merchant, shipmaster and manufacturer
discovered and disclosed to our statesmen and
to tho people that commercial emancipation
must be sdilod to the political freedom which
had been so bravely won. The commercial pol
icy of the mother country had not relaxed any
of its hard and oppressive features.
To hold In check the development of our com
mercial marine, to prevent or retard the estab
lishment and growth of manufactures In tho
States, and so to sroure an American market for
their shops and a carrying trade for. their ships,
was the policy of European statesmen, and was
pursued with most selnth vigor. ,
