Her Inaugural Wardrobe Completed
and Now in Canton.
The inaugural wardrobe of Mrs. Wil
liam McKinley, preparations for which
liave been the subject of two visits to
Chicago on the part of the coming first
lady of the land, is completed. They
consist of ten rich costumes of satin
velvet and silver cloth, and were
shipped from that city to the McKinley
liome at Canton, Ohio. The costumes
to be worn on inaugural and state oc
casions will be among the most mag
nificent ever displayed in Washington
society. The cost of the costumes will
be between eight and ten thousand dol
lars. They are pronounced by those
who have viewed them to be anions the
best creations of the art of dress-making
that have yet been attained in this
c-ountry. The gown to be worn at the
inauguration is especially handsome.
.The material is what is known as cloth
of silver. The ground work is of white
pa.tin heavily woven with silver thread
in a conventionalized lily design. The
train, which is plain, full and sweep
ing, measures two and a half yards in
length. On the left side it is open over
a panel of seed pearls embroidered on
eatin. Beginning at the bottom is a
flounce of Venetian point lace of a
ppecial and beautiful design, a half
vard in width, which is cascaded nar
row at the bottom and gradually
widens toward the top until it is ex
tended its full width over the top and
out to the back, where it is partly con
cealed under the full train. The right
pide of the skirt is also slashed open
half way up, and under that is an em
broidered petticoat of pearls. The bod
Ice is tight-fitting and slightly pointed
or, l sirlc The lower rjart is of
silver cloth, and the upper and 'back of
pearls. The same beautiful lace that
is used in the flounce is fastened at the
waist line into a narrow point and is
draped wider towards the shoulders in
a V-shape. The collar is of pearl em-,
broidered satin, and from it is a high
Medici collar of the lace. The sleeves
are long and fairly tight and are fin
ished at the wrist with Vandyke effect,
embroidered at the edge, from which
thev fall from narrow lace of the same
design as that on the skirt. With this
jjown Mrs. McKinley wears a number
of diamonds to fasten the lace on the
front of her gown, the handsomest be
ing a diamond star and sunburst of
unusual brilliancy. The lining of this
beautiful gown is of white satin, heavy
tind rich. Around the bottom and side
are a half dozen ruffles to give a full
effect. The lace which is used was
anade especially for the establishment
where the gown was designed. It is al
most priceless in value, the whole pat
tern being purchased by- Mrs. McKin
ley. Buy the illustrated inauguration edi
tion of the Register to-night. 2 cents.
'AU tho news.
JEFFERSON'S INAUU C RATI ON.
No inauguration myth has been more
tenacious of life than that which pic
tured JmYorson, attired as a plain citi
zen, riding on horseback to th; Capitol,
hitching his horse to tho palings and
walking unattended into the senate
chamber to take the oath as president.
To have done this would have been in
accordance with his previous utter
ances, for he had strongly condemned j
as savoring of monarchy all public cer- 1
emony at the swearing in of a pros!- '
dent. When the time for his own inau
guration arrived, however, the case
seems to have looked different to him.
Whether it was because he was to be
the first president inaugurated at the
new Capitol or because of an unwilling
ness to disappoint the large numbers of
his friends and partisans who had as
sembled to honor him, is not clear; but
the fact is that he did permit a consid
erable display at the ceremonies. He
was met at the door of his boarding
house, which was only a stone's throw
from the Capitol, by a militia artillery
company, and a procession of citizens,
and, escorted by these, he went on foot
to the Capitol.
The horseback story or "fake," as it
would be denominated in modern jour
nalism, was the invention of an Eng
lishman named John Davis, who put it
in a book of American travels, which he
published in London two years later.
In order to give it an air of truthful,
ness Davis declared that he was pres
ent at the inauguration, which wasjioi
true. A veracious account of the cere
monies was sent to England by Edwar.i
Thornton, who was then in charge of
the English legation at Washington:
and in this Jefferson was described as
having walked to the Capitol. Thes
facts, together with a great mass 'of in
teresting matter about Jefferson's inau
guration, are set forth in detail by
Henry Adams in his "History of the
United States," and leave no doubt
that the Davis version was a pure fab
HOW WE CAN HELP INDIA.
There have been many expressions of
willingness in Iowa and other western
states to contribute food supplies to the
famine-stricken ... -sufferers of India
These same generous western peopl
sent trainloads of wheat and corn and
flour to the relief of the Russian peas
ants some four years ago. The idea of
sending relief to India is practical i 1
every way. On account of their reli
gious scruples the people would r,c
touch any canned meats or supplies c
that character, and the one way i
which America could best help Im"
would be to send grain. Indian 101
brings the farmer only eight or c
cents a bushel this year in Iowa. I
braska and thereabout, and it would
the best possible food to send to Indi.
The railroads doubtless would be w"'
ing to carry it to the seaboard at :
lowest possible charge for transpor'
tion, and the British government migi
well put some of its transport sin;;
at the service of American relief co
mittees for the purpose of taking o"
the grain to India. The Russian peopl
hold America in the highest regard li
the relief rendered at the time of the'
great famine. Nothing makes un
certainly for the removal of prejudk
and the growth of kindly feeling tv
tween nations than help rendered ;
such times of appalling distress. In 110
other way can the desire of Americans
to contribute toward the Indian famine
relief fund accomplish anything like so
much as by the plan of securing greai
quantities of Indian corn in the Missis
sippi valley states and organizing trans
portation facilities in some such fashio
as may be suggested by the experience
of four years ago. when relief ships
sailing from Philadelphia caried food
to Russia. Review of Reviews.
