Members of the Diplomatic Corps Re new Assurances of Good Will The Annual Ereakfast The New Year reception ab the White House today was marked by a dignity and impressiveness in keeping with its character as the most imposing of the functions pos sible in a republic. The personality of the Chief Magistrate of the nation and his at tractive wife naturally dominates in every thing about the Executive Mansion, and was never more marked than when Presi dent and Mrs. Roosevelt came down just at the stroke of 11 o'clock this morning to receive and return the greetings of the New Year with the representatives of nearly every nation under the sun and of the great American public as represented by the high est officials of his country in every branch of achievement. The moment was an Important one, new orders and arrangement changing for the better the customs that have obtained for years past at similar events. That all had been well thought out and planned for, the very general comfort assured in following the new plan was manifest at every turn. Opening the Beception. The scene during the last quarter of an hour before the reception began was not unlike the same ceremonial of years. Col. Bingham was present and personally direct Ing each of the small details that told In the long run in the facility and ease with which each man carried out his part. Mr. Stone, the chief usher, was his able lieu tenant in all these arrangements. The Marine Band had the east side of the main lobby, although there was passageway be tween the space it occupied on both sides. Secretary Cortelyou was another of the busy participants in the way of making ready for the reception and throughout its progress. With Col. Bingham, Capt. Cowles, Major McCawley, the military es cort to the receiving party, there were also Capt. Proctor and Lieut. Wood. The program of music rendered by the Marine Band, in charge of Lieut. Santel man, was as follows: 1. March, "The Stars and Stripes Forever," Sousa. 2. Overture, "La Dame Blanche"..Boieldieu 8. Fantasia, "The International Congress," Sousa. d. March, "Our Glorious Banner," Santelmann 5. Excerpts from "Cavalleria Rusticana," Mascagni. 6. Selection, "King Dodo".............Luders 7. Waltz, "Hydropaten"................Gung' 8. March, "True to the Flag"......Von Blon The holly hedges between the pillars cut off the view from the band. Instead of the old golden gate a thick red cord roped off a space In front of the blue room door, where two policemen stood guard and a corps of women newspaper writers took their sta tion. At the stroke of 11 Oolonel Bingham, Major MeCawley and the other officers de tailed for this pleasant duty went upstairs to escort the presidentlal party down. The new east staircase, sacred now to the uses of the household and to friende, had its New Year christening. The leader the Marine Band on the last marble awaited the signal from Colonel Bln ~ as he turned the step at the first land~ and the house was nlied with music when the President and Mrs. .Roosevelt reached the corridor. The path of 1900 to the state functions was inaugu rated. President and Mrs. Roosevelt grossed the corridor to the green room, snade a detour of that and entered the blue parlor by the south door. Following them were Secretary and Mrs. Hay, Postmaster General and Mrs. Payne, the Attorney Gen gral and Mrs. Knox and the Secretary of Agriculture and Miss Wilson. The receiving party stood In front of the south windows, abandoning the spot near the other side of the so long a marked one en similar occasions. -Nearly a third of the space is now marked off by a fancy but sturdy rope, drawn through three stout brass supports. Arrival of the Diplomats. The facilities now enjoyed at the White House permit so many entrances that the old-time method the diplomats enjoyed of entering through a window seems a relic of a century ago. The foreigners came today by the south balcony to the basement picture gallery. 'I hen they were shown upstairs by either the east or the west stone stairways. Tlhey gathered in the red room as of old, and the brilliant mingling of court costumes and military and naval uniforms, and the some what less effective but no less becoming toilettes of the women folks made a picture that was worth crossing the continent to se. Fifteen minutes there of assembling and exchange of greetings in the most diplomatic of French, for the Europeans, and the liquid beauties of the language of the Castilia formed the chorus. The dip lomats formed a hollow square and ap proached the blue room by the south-door. As the dean of the corps the German am basador led his colleagues to the presence of the President. The Secretary of State was at the right of the President during the diplomatic reception. The phrase "behind the, line" has also patssed Into obscurity by the new methods in use. It is the President and his wife who have this distinction now, and the ape i-ial guests invited to receive have the rest of the room to the'mselves. This arrange ment gives easy movement to the proces sion passing before the receiving party and affords access also by the two other doors . to the red and green parlors. The Receiving Party.

Hagner, Mrs. Perry S. Heath, Miss Grace McKinley, Mrs. Cameron Mc Rae Winslow, Miss Christine Roosevelt. The Toilets. Mrs. Roosevelt was charmingly attired in a dainty dress of cream-tinted lace that had appliques of heavy white lace and pan els of finer lace, spangled in silver. The lace was laid over pale blue chiffon and that of a soft shade of pale blue satin. Pearls and diamonds glittered about the high lace neckband, and deep falls of pale blue chiffon fell from the lace elbow sleeves. White suede gloves wrinkled over her wrists, and she carried a pretty cluster of white rosebuds and maidenhair fern. A pretty little ornament was worn in the hair, and her whole appearance was as smiling and as pretty as a girl of twenty. Mrs. Hay wore a very rich toilet of gray silk poplin that had the seams put together with open stitches, showing a lining of a lighter shade. A black tulle hair ornament was worr and but few jewels. Mrs. Shaw wore black lace over pale blue silk and diamond ornaments in her hair and a diamond brooch. Mrs. Knox wore white liberty satin, with a great deal of fine tucking and needlework in both skirt and bodice. A single large diamond gleamed in the lace-trimmed collar band. Mrs. Payne was in black lace with silver and jet spangles and made over pale blue satin. Miss Wilson wore a French dress of pink liberty satin, the skirt stripped with in sertions of cream-tinted lace, and on the bcdice shirred chiffon with touches of black velvet. Miss Alice Roosevelt wore a cream-tinted lace with a touch of black velvet. Her pearls enhanced the becomingness of it. Miss Christine Roosevelt and Miss Elfreda Roosevelt were also in girlish white dresses. The Missees Hitchcock wore tucked dresses of white liberty silk, Miss Louise Jones was in gray crepe, Miss Fuller, cream tinted lace: Mrs. Harlan, royal purple vel vet; Mrs. Proctor, gray crepe over black; Mrs. James K. Jones. black lace over pur ple; Miss Kean, gray crepe; Mrs. Leonard Wood, light flowered silk; Mrs. Rixey, white silk; Mrs. Bingham. white cloth; Mrs. Cortelyou, white silk and lace; Mrs. Cowles, black spangled net over white silk, and Mrs. Thomas F. Walsh, Russian lace over white, with touches of pale green velvet; wreath of green leaves in hair. Inspecting the Attractions. The diplomats, after passing down the line, had the liberty of the blue parlor or anywhere else they chose to go. Their stay being short for the most part and the company there having many fascinations, only a few got beyond that room till they left the house altogether. The President was in his usual cordial mood, and his handclasp was as hearty as ever. His chatty conversations with the majority of the visitors turned a formal occasion into one of genuine good cheer. Mrs. Roosevelt, who is no less happy in her greetings, had a pleasant word with each person. The young members of the President's family, the boys and Miss Ethel, who was dressed in a white India silk frock and a bow of flowered white ribbon tying her fair hair, lost none of the interesting scenes that were transpiring in the different rooms. The exit for all guests, both lofty and low ly, was by the new east terrace. The guests, after passing through the corridor, the red room, past tile receiving party to the green room, had the privilege, if they cared to use it, of lingering a while in the east room before walking its length to the head of the east staircase and down and out by the basement gallery to the terrace. Nobody hurried through when to hundrede, even of the official callers, they were en joying for the first time the sight of the improvements and changes and the new glories generally. Presidential Portraits. The pictures of the Presidents have been hung, the largest, like those of Presidents Arthur and Garfield, on the corridor walls and the others in smaller frames on the walls of the red and green rooms, where they look very much at home. The por traits came in for many commendatory re marks today, in their new environment. The fair faces of former mistresses of the White Fouse are the chief adornment of the bas sent gallery. That of Mrs. Tyler is the first the eyes rest upon on the south wall of the gallery, and seems to have put on a new coquetry with a serious ness that tells somethng of the ups and downs of life as exemplified in its new position. The portrait of Mrs. Hayes nearly covers a niche in the wall opposite. These are all in good company, for Char tran's picture of Mrs. Roosevelt is up at the other end of the gallery. The portraits that share the honors of the main corridor with Presidents Garfield an4 Arthur are two other New Yorkers, Grover Cleveland and Millard Fillmore. The place given Mr. Cleveland at the right of the east staircase, facing the green room, is a splen did one. President Lincoln. one of the larg est canvases, hangs in the green room, where Mrs. Hayes' picture was formerly. Mrs. Roosevelt very wisely considered that any new choice of place for the por traits of Presidents wives could not be considered as relating to Mrs. Washington. The two portraits of the first President and bis wife, so long In the east room. are now in the red room, the immnortal Washington having the commanding place over the mantel and his wife on the north wall. -President Jefferson, another large canvas, is on the other side of the doorway, and that of General Grant is over the nort~h entrance to the blue room. The Blue Boom. The newly decorated blue room was shown for the first time today. It is total ly changed. The walls are covered with blue silk, the colonial blue. It has panels formed by straight bands of dull gold. braid. 'The floor is inlaid and highly po - ished, like the ether palr.~hie ur ture has dull gilt frames and is upholstered in dark blue satin with a fleur-de-lis pattern in dull git: The curtains have gold stars and the national emblem appears in the gold cornice across the top. The empire n'anteis are in marble and the side-light. brackets in dull brass have the cascaded effects in crystal. .The Sun Shone Brightly. No electric lights were turned on today In any part of the house save in the base ment picture gallery, where the portraits could not have been properly seen without their aid. Back of where the President and his wife stood, the -sunshine of a perfect winter day came through the uncurtained windoym. In the red room, which is by far the favorite for all new and old corners to the White House. the sunshine at noon was its chief glory. A carpet covered the east room floor, and the red rug of the corridor was re moved. Flower. in the old-time quantities were conspicuous by their absence-only vases filled with poinsetta blooms stood on the mantels and near the windows, Several gorgeous baskets of flowers- sent to Mrs. Roosevelt by friends were in the parlors The opportunity to se this picture was greatly enjoyed, melsaly bu the public.

WITH GORGEOUS POMP English King Proclaimed Em peror of India. FUNCTION AT DELHI VICEROY READS MESSAGE FBOE KING EDWARD. He Promises to Look After the Intet. eats of His Indian Subjects. DELHI, India, January 1.-Tens of thou sands of people from the city of Delhi and from villages far and near began gather ing at daybreak this morning on the great plain outside the city. There they waited patiently for the supreme announcement of the durbar that ing Edward was em peror of India. Soon the great plain was filled with crowding masses of people, and the brightly colored clothing of the vast throng covered the space with gorgeous hues. The crowd on the plain was com posed largely of the common people, but among it could be seen the retainers of the various rajahs who had assembled for the function. The attention of all was fixed upon the white amphitheater, in the center of the plain, where the announcement was to be made. The amphitheater was adorned with gilded cupolas and surrounded by bat teries. squadrons and battalions of the In clan army. Beyond the amphitheater in the distance could be seen great numbers of elephants, camels and horses. So vast was the multitude that the troops appeared as mere splashes of color. The arrival at the amphitheater of the viceroy of India, Lord Curzon of Kedlestone, the princes and other dignitaries was one of the brilliant episodes of the day. The princes were clad In silks and adorned with jewels, and their horses and carriages were brilliant with trappings of gold. Spectacle Most Striking. The spectacle within the arena was most striking and gorgeous. The Pathan chiefs and the scidars were resplendent in bril liant raiment. Soldiers, civilians and visit ors from far distant countries were in cluded among those within the amph!theater. Upon the entrance of the veterans of the Indian mutin-y there was trenendous en thusiasm, and the arrivals marched to their places, the bands playing national airs. The carriage of the Duke of Connaught. who represents King Edward, was escorted by a detachment of cavalry, and as the duke and duchess were driven around the arena the assemblage gave them an en thusiastic wdcome. Amid the acclamations of the people the duke took his seat at the left of the throne, while the duchess pro ceeded to a place behind the throne. When the great amphitheater was filled and the hour for the announcement drew near the multitude within and without awaited expectantly the first act of the proclamation ceremony. Then the approach of the viceroy was heralded. Preceded by members of his body guard clad in white, blue and gold, Lord Curzon appeared at the entrance of the arena in his carriage. The postillon* wore uniforms of scarlet and gold and the carriage was drawn by four bay horses. The viceroy was escorted by Sir Pertab Fingh. Alighting from his carriage. Lord Curzon mounted the stairs to the throne. which was decorated with golden lions, and around which were placed massive siver footstools. The throne itself was surmounted by a canopy of white and gold. When the vice roy reached the throne the national anthem was played and a salute of twenty-one guns was fired. When the spectators 'had resumed their seats after the anthem there was a flourish of trumpets from the heralds, and Maj. Maiwell, at the command of the viceroy, read the proclamation opening the durbar. The royal standard was then raised on high and the imperial salute was fired. The massed bands marched by play lng, bonfires were started -by the troops out side and it was arnnounced that King Ed ward was emperor of India. Speech by the Viceroy. There was another flourish of trumpets and Lord Curzon arose and stood for a moment impassive. Then in impressive tones he delivered a speech and read the message from King Edward. In his ad dress the viceroy announced the coronation of the Iking. He extolled the loyal Indian people and prophesied prosperity for the In dian empire. He said also that it had been decided not to exact interest for three years on all loans made or guaranteed by the government of India to the native states in connection with the recent famine. The viceroy announced also the abolition of the Indian staff corps, which has long been an army sinecure.' In the king's message, which was then read by Lord Curzon, his majesty said that the Prince and Princess of Wales would shortly visit India. The prince regretted his absence from the -lur bar and sent his greetings to his Indian people. In conclusIon King Edward says: "I re new the assurances of my regard for the liberties of the Indian people; of my re spect for their dignities and rights; of my interest in their advancement, and of my devotion to their welfare. These are the supreme aims and objects of my rule, which under the blessing of Almighty God will lead to the increasing prosperity of my Indian empire and to the greater happiness of its people." As the viceroy finished read ing the king's words the assembled people broke into chcers for the king and emperor. The cheering was taken, up by the multi tude outside the amphitheater and was long sustained. Then followed the presentation of Indian princes to the viceroy and the Duke of Con naughlt and political officer. paid homage to the .. vereign. This ended the ceremony and the royal cortege left the arena follow ed by the delegates from foreign powers and the Indian princes, Lord Kitchener. after the ceremonies, en tered his carriage and was driven to Delhi. Weather Was Favorable. The whole ceremony was favored with brilliant sunshine. Lady Curuop was dressed in pale blue chiffon, trimmed with pasementerie. She wore a flower hat. Lord Curson was in full political uniform, with cocked hat. The Duke of Connaught had on a field mar shal's uniform and the Duchese of Con naught wore a costume of cream Iaos over white silh. with silver trimmings, ad a rem tqque.
