HANNA AS ESCORT Precedents for the Inauguration Are Sought. COLONEL ROOSEVELT'S ESCORT The Gorgeous -. Spectacle to Be Pre sented at the Inaugural ■■ Court of Honor. Washington, Feb. 22.—Rules of prece dent have settled the disputed question as to who shall ride with President McKinley along Pennsylvania avenue on the occasion of his second inauguration. Some con tend that, in the absence of an outgoing president, the chief executive who suc ceeds himself should be accompanied by the vice president elect. Theodore Roosevelt, of New York. Others maintain with equal certainty that Senator Hanna should occupy a seat in the presidential vehicle or at least be one of those upon whom the distinction will fall. The latter are correct. The joint committee of both houses of congress, in charge of the cere monies in the senate and on the eastern portico of the capitol. have decided not to Bwerve from custom, according to which at least one, and possibly more members of the congressional committee will become Mr. McKinley's escort. This was ascer tained from authoritative sources. • This committee consists of Senator Han na. Senator. Spooner, and Senator Jones, from the upper • body, and Representative Cannon, Representative Dalzell, and Rep resentative Mcßae, from the house. Sen ator Hanna is chairman of the Joint com mittee and as such will certainly ride with the president. One or more other mem bers of the committee will probably also be In the carriage, although this has not been definitely decided. In order to .bal ance matters, so that the house and sen ate may have equal representation in the presidential escort, Senator Hanna and one representative, probably Mr. Cannon, will ride on the front seat of the carriage, fating the president. Joint Committee to Escort Roose velt. Vice President-elect Roosevelt will ride In another . vehicle behind that of the chief executive. It is practically agreed that a portion of the same committee will be his escort. Should three members of the committee accompany President Mc- Kinley, the remaining three will ride with Mr. Roosevelt. In this manner-the prob lem, which was thought to have confronted the joint committee, has been solved. It did not take long to reach a conclu sion. A simple reference to the custom followed during the second inauguration of General Grant settled the question, and the precedent established then will be followed. When President Grant was Inaugurated as his own successor in office March 4, 1873, there was no retiring presi dent. The ceremonies at the capitol were In charge of a senate committee, which included Senator Aaron H. Cragin of New Hampshire, Senator John A. Logan and Senator Thomas F. Bayard. Senator Cragin was chairman of the committee. President Grant sat with , all three of these distinguished eommitteemen on his way from the capitol to the White House, while the dashing young heirs of his house rode in saddle before the carriage. The vehicle was drawn by four closely cropped mouse-colored horses. It trav eled in the third division of the parade, under command of Colonel Audenreid, and the First troop of Philadelphia city cavalry was the escort. The vice-presi dent-elect, Henry Wilson of Massachu setts, rode in a carriage with former Gov ernor Cooke of the District of Columbia. Senate Always Assumes Charge. . In the past a senate committee has al ways had charge of the capitol cere monies. The arrangements this year are vested in a joint committee, for the first time in the history of the country. This "was: because the house demanded repre sentation * on the committee, which be came a joint one at the instance of the house members, who thought they should not be slighted in the great quadrennial ceremony of the nation. Vice-President-elect Roosevelt will probably stop at the home of Commander William S. Cowles, 1733 N street north west. . v CARNIVAL OF splendor Gorgeous Spectacle to Be Presented ; In Inaugural Court of Honor. Washington, Feb. 22.—The court of Donor now building in front of the White House for the Inauguration will be one of the most artistic features ever arranged In honor of a president. In detail the court of honor is composed of eight structures, consisting of four pillars " each, with an ornamental cap, called pylons, and thirty-two slender white pillars ranged about the semi-cir cular driveway in front of the executive mansion and along the north side of Pennsylvania avenue parallel. The lar ger structures are being erected at dis tances equally' dividing the space be- tween the ends of. the stands in front of the treasury department on both sides of the avenue. Each of the pylons bears on its crest a great bowl of iron, supported by artis tically designed uprights of the same metal. These structures resemble those which bore the flaming basins that light ed the games of ancient Rome. They will •erve a similar purpose on the night of March 4, and will provide a unique and magnificent addition to the street decora tions for the evening hours. Under the cap which surmounts the four pillars of •ach pylon will be four incandescent lights, each of 100-candlepower. The caps will be pierced and glass of different col ors set in the apertures, and through these a blaze of multi-color splendor will radiate. Eight Powerful Searchlights. The most interesting feature, however, will be the effect from searchlights .of 10,000 candlepower, concealed in the caps of the eight pylons, whose brilliant flame will shoot into the sky through. openings above the place where the lights and the men who operate them will be placed.; From these eight classic columns streams ; of starry brilliancy will 5 sweep the heav- i ens, striking on the passing clouds and lending unparalleled grandeur and Ibeauty to the scene. The artistic effect, will be augmented ; by curling clouds of white smoke, which will rise from the metal basins on the ■summits of the pylons, breaking the black . circle of shadow, around which will play the i white beams from the big reflector below. This smoke will "be made by the use of chemicals upon excelsior, and there ■will be ,no flame..; These . great k waving, ; trembling, ever-changing pillars of smoke I - will: add indescribable picturesqueness to I a scene where art has been supplemented by i clever manipulation of science's most modern aids to decoration and illumina tion. PVVHIBHBPIBSHBHfi - Each of the I thirty-two slender pillars, which will stretch between the middle pylons on ; the north side of the avenue and span the ■■ semicircle; in the White House grounds, will bear on its summit a hall studded : with thirty-eight ■ eight-can dle power lights. - The space - under the ,;•' projecting roofs i of -the four reviewing stands in the court of honor will be set > with lights, an in - candescent v bulb of thirty-two candle : power in the center, grading off to eight candle-power light next to the posts. - Concentration of Illumination. .";.-« Chairman Gibson and hie committee •were influenced in determining: upon this chief feature; of the inaugural' illumina tion by a desire to concentrate' the illu • mination :in i; one splendid. effect,, rather than to have the decoration; of ; v lights partly lost ■by ■ spreading "- it I over a wide area. ;. To this end .the appropriation for * street decorations , was reduced and ; the -: amount \ for the illumination of the court of honor \ increased I from $1,100 -to $2,300. A contract : for. the latter I sum was .' signed with '■■ representatives[ of a ■ New York \ city company.
