New Year Greetings Extended

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,"
2. Overture, "La Dame Blanche"..Boieldieu
8. Fantasia, "The International Congress,"
d. March, "Our Glorious Banner,"
5. Excerpts from "Cavalleria Rusticana,"
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 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
Mrs. Payne was in black lace with silver
and jet spangles and made over pale blue
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
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

Wood, light flowered silk; Mrs. Rixey,

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.

and the national emblem appears in the
gold cornice across the top. The empire

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

for all new and old corners to the White

greatly enjoyed, melsaly bu the public.

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
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*
