In it will be represented the army and navy of the country, the

whose political faith is Democratic. Probably the largest representation
of civic organizations that has ever marched at the induction of a ruler

ixti Clp.-lano Castro, exiled dictator
of Venezuela, who baa succeeded In get-
ting both feet planted on United Statu
soil despite the. efforts of the Federal
Government authorities, arrived In
Washington last night to attend the
Inauguration of Woodrow Wilton as the
first Democratic President of the United
States sines he became an International
Incidentally, his presence In Washing
ton is a bitter pill for the officials of the
State and Commerce and Labor depart
ments of the Oovemment In the Taft
administration, who did their best to
keep out of the country the man who
as ruler of Venezuela defied the United
States and halt a doten European pow
ers. Castro arrived from Havana, via Key
West It was reported from the Cuban
capital that the Venezuelan had an
nounced to the admiring Cubans that he
was coming to Washington on the per
sonal invitation ot the President-elect,
but this was emphatically denied by
Wood row Wilson as soon as he heard ot
It. An how. Catro Is now here, ready
to cultivate the friendship of the Demo
cratic party In its hour of triumph. In
common with all I-atln-America. Gen.
Castro Ls convinced that the Democratic
administration is going to reverse all
the foreign policies of the United State.
Castro was accompanied to Wash
ington by Simon Hello, of Curacao, an
Uland owned by the Dutch, off the
coast of Venezuela, and a favorite
refuge for political exiles, and Alfred
Corregrosa. of Paris, also a popular
resort with Latin-American emlgra-
doa politico!-." They all expressed
themselves as very weary after more
than two das of travel, and went to
bed almost Immediately upon their ar
rival at a hotel only a few squares
from the State Department and the
White House, and directly across tha
street from the Department of Justice,
wbose agents have had Castro under
surveillancy ever since he cams into
Since Castro lacks any invitation to
Washington from either the outgoing;
or Incoming administration, he will be
obliged to shift for himself during the
inauguration ceremonies. It would not
surprise Washington, however. If the
wily and audacious Venezuelan turned
ud to-day in one of the seats of honor.
Washington has learned to expect any
thing from Castro, though this la tha
first time the Capital has had the op-,
portirnlty to get anything but a lonsT-J
range view or Ms , remarkable activities.
Scores of persons were Injured when
Pennsylvania Avenue was blocked by
spectators during the suffrage pageant
late yesterday afternoon.
Two hundred suffering from iniories
sustained In the jama of spectators view
ing the suffrage pageant, auto and other
accidents were admitted as patients at
tmergency Hospital vesterday and the
official records show that the day was
the busiest In the history of the In
Korty persons were so seriously hurt
that they were nof permitted to leave tha
hospital, but a strange feature of the
record ls that no patient sustained In
juries that will result fatally. Every
available ward and room in the hospital
s crowded and the capacity Is taxed.
Th handful of police were unable to
cope with the situation and a hurry call
was sent tor troopers.
Korty catalnmen from Fort Mver
charged down the Avenue from Fif
teenth Street and opened a path
through the jam. In the excitement
scenes of disorder almost wjthout pre
ctdent In Washington were enacted.
More than twoscore of persona were
removed to Emergency Hospital from
Pennsylvania Avenue between Twelfth
and Fifteenth Street within an hour.
Terrified by the plunging, rearing
troop horses that were frightened by
the clamor and colors, men, women,
and children fought each other to es
cape trampling hoofs, and women
fainted so rapidly that tha ambulance
service of Emergency Hospital, con
sisting of only ore auto anil one horse
ambulance, could not remove tnem to
the hospital without delays.

Treatment Accorded Women in Beautiful Demonstration for
Their Enfranchisement Denounced as National Disgrace.
Miss Inez Millholland, on White Steed at Head of
Notable Procession, Cheered by Thousands.
Woman exalted lier pica for enfranchisement jesterday in the Na
tional Capital with a splendor of pageantry whose power of beauty
and reason could not be overcome even by a police "protection" which
the suffragists, in may meeting last night, declared to be so inadequate
that President-elect Wilson will be aked to attend to the police de
partment and the War Department, whom tlie suffrage leaders had
appealed for assistance. Congressional investigation also is promised.
Washington has never seen such a, spectacle as the woman suf
fragists and tlie masses of coagulated humanity through which thev
toiled. The patient ardor of the thousand of advocates, some of them
voung children, others of them aged women who had been jeered half
a century before for speaking out the cause that millions cheer to-dav,
was in a bitter contrast with the multitude, whose disorder was prac
tically unrestrained save by the inherent decency of American citi
zenship. When the whole day's momentous proceedings, which included
an adjournment of the United States Supreme Court, liad parsed into
history 'le suffragists, undaunted because the delay and insult of
their marchers had marred, but not destroyed, the exquisite beauty of
their allegorical tableaux, declared tliat the ery inadequacy of the
"police protection" made their victory far greater than they liad
counted on.
It was a day of tremendous significance, and the suffragists
achieved, bevond the realm of doubt, their purpose in putting the cauc
of woman suffrage so closely before the Federal Government that the
government's chief men must try it upon its merits.
Stepping out from the granite Greek portico of the Treasury a
from the twilight of classic prejudice, a new Columbia marched bravely
forth into the full light of dav, and in the majesty of a newborn power
commanded Justice, Cliarity. Lib--
crty. Peace, and Hope, as her
handmaidens, to wait equally upon
man and woman.
The allegory, -a hose story, silent, save
for the music of woods and brasses
which accompanied It. was enhanced by
all the subtle power of music and grace
and charm and beauty of color and form,
was dlsplased in the radiance of an un
clouded sun, vkhlch warmed and bright

Upon the thronged Avenue In which the
paradcra were arduously fighting their

radiance, and the lmpresslveness of tha
floats, to whose Ingenious appeal the
presence of such women as Beha A.
Lockviood. Louisa White. Man- Chapman,
Catt. and Anna Shaw, some of them
tiudglng sturdily forward like the school
girls nith them, added a potent dig
nity that struck into the hearts of even
the scoffers who cried out their scorn of

from themselves
