Description of Reviewing
Stand Where President Stood
Washington, March 4—Almost from
time Immemorial, the newly-elected
President of the United States has re
viewed the inaugural parade from a
stand in front of the White House.
It is fitting that this should, be made
the focal point of the great function.
Here, from Fifteenth Street to Seven
teenth Street, on Pennsylvania Avenue,
the Taft Inaugural Committee has de
signed a Court of Honor, which. In
symbolic effect and beauty of con
struction. surpasses all previous efforts
In street decorative work in the Na
tional Capital.
This work has been the particular
care of the Committee on Street Decor
ations. of which £. W. Dunn. Jr., la the
chairman. Associated with him are
many architects of national repute.
They have collaborated and after much
study have produced a scheme which is
a master-piece of architectural art.
In nearly every instance heretofore,
the criticism has been that the decor
ations of the Court of Honor were too
sombre. There was not enough of the
character of the celebration of victory,
not enough of the character of a Joy
ous beginning of an eventful era. This
has been avoided In the present court
of Honor. The decfirators have ex
passed admirably the!?- Idea. The re
sult is a superb decorative schema,
beautiful in design and finish, and
thoroughly typical of the strength and
prosperity of the country.
Court of Honor.
From Fifteenth Street to Seven
teenth Street there is a stretch of
aboue 1.800 feet. Pennsylvania Avenue,
between these points, is Intersected by
two cross streets, Madison Place on
the east and the axis of the White
House and Jackson Place on the west
On the axis of the White House and
Jlrectly in front of it, is the Presi
lent’s reviewing stand, accommodating
ipproximateiy 3,000 people, and oppo
site to It is the Lafayette Square stand,
tccommodatlng about 8.000 people. The
stands are designed artistically and.
ilthough only temporary, are in keep
ng with the architectural treatment of
:he Court of Honor.
Venetian masts, surmounted with
Silt flowers and festooned with gaily
-oiored streamers, extend the entire
ength of both sides of Pennsylvania
Avenue They are spaced thirty feet
ipart and are Joined together with
looped garlands of laurel leaves anti
| flowers. At the intersection of Madl
| son Place and Jackson Place, on each
of the four corners are large Pylons,
flfty feet high: These pylons have the
form of massive Doric columns on tajl
pedestal^ arid wide-spreading basis.
Eight ifi number, they form, as it were,
the entrance, and exit gates (if the
0<>urt of Honor.
' The pylons are constructed of frame
work and stuff, palrttetk wftlte and cer
tain portions of the staff ornament Is
! gilded. AH of the columns are decor
ated with laurel leaf, flowers and gild
ed rope. At the base of each column
is a cartouche with the American eagle
bearing a trophy of silk flags. Around
each pylon are Venetian masts arrang
ed in a circle and on them are trophies
with the gilded American eagle perch
ed on a golden label bearing the
names of Taft and Stterman, alternate
ly. Below the names is a bas-relief
portrait of Taft and Sherman.
^ Garlands of Flonrr*.
The pylons at each street intersect
ion have stretched between them and
diagonally at a height of forty feet
aboye the ground, laurel leaf garlands
of massive size, and festooned below
the garlands of leaves are smaller
garlands of flowers. At given points,
the garlands are ornamented with
gilded discs with looped gilded rope
, and tassels. In the center of each span,
directly over the center of the street,
are limrnense trophies of the seal of the
United States. The diagonal festoons
have at their Intersection an Immense
white ball ornamented with looped
garlands of exquisite green, studded
with etectric lamp's. White and green
constitute the official colors of the en
tire Inaugural ceremony. —
Each pylon Is surmounted with a
huge glided basket filled with palms
and flowers and lighted with incandes
cent lamps. A line of electric lamps
extends along every festoon or gar
land, so that at night the general lino
of the decorations will be preserved lt>
all of their artistic beauty.
Wherever the American flag Is used
It Is used properly, breaking free to
the wind or grouped in form of tro
phies. The general color schemas,
of white and green Is preserved, how
ever, and natural greens and white
flowers have been employed in prodi
gal profusion. It was regarded that as
a background for the brilliant stream
ers and flagi. no more beautiful com
bination of colors was possible. "

them throughout the chamber. The
Representatives were accompanied by
the House employes, who, together with
many of the official attaches of the
Senate, being unable to obtain seats,
were obliged to stand throughout the
eei emorty.
The doors leading to the floor of the
Senate had been thrown open at 11
o’clock for the admission of any per
sons entitled to seats there. Among
those who arrived early were officers
of tiie army and navy, who had re
ceived the thanks of Congress, which ■
entitled them to the privilege of tak- 1
mg part in the ceremonies. They were
attirt-d in full dress uniform, made pic
turesque by silver and gold ornaments.
Admiral Dewey and General Bell were
also present In full uniform as the of
ficial representatives of the army and
the navy.
Tlie Committee on Arrangements in
charge of the ceremony of inaugurat
ing the President and Vice-President
consisted of Senators Philander Chase ;
Knox of Pennsylvania, Henry Cabot
Dodge of Massachusetts and Augustus
Octavius Bacon of Georgia, on tlie part
of the Senate, and Representatives
James Francis Burke of Pennsylvania, !
Horace olin Young of Michigan, and
John Wesley Gaines of Tennessee, on !
the part of the House. This commit- '
tee escorted Mr. Sherman, the Vice
President-elect, to the chamber and ;
later performed the same service for .
the President and the President-elect.
Each of these distinguished personages '
received his full quota of attention,
and although the rules of the Senate
forbid applause, there was a pro
nounced demonstration in the galleries
which Vice-President Fairbanks, who 1
was in the chair, did not hasten to
suppress. During these outbursts la- '
dies waved handkerchiefs and each of ,
the recipients of this attention made
smiling acknowledgement. Mr. Taft
raised his eyes to the Senators’ gal- I
lery in which Mrs. Taft and other 1
members of his family were seated, and
nodded recognition. Mrs. Taft re
sponded with a smile.
The two most conspicuous seats in
the Senate were reserved for the Pres
ident and President-elect, both of whom
faced the presiding officer, the Presi- ‘
dent in the front row on the right side
of the aisle and the President-elect
on the left. Members of the Cabinet
were also given places in the front row !
of seats near Mr. Roosevelt, and the
Committee on Arrangements were seat- |
i ed near them.
Sherman and Fuirhimk*.
Mr. Sherman was at once escorted \
up the steps to the desk of the Vice- (
President and was given a seat on his
I right. There the oath of office was ad- .
I ministered to hi in by Vice-president
| Fairbanks, thin being the first of the '
functions performed after the gather
j <>f the assemblage. Mr. Fairbanks
raised his right hand and Mr. Sherman
assumed a like position. The words of
! the oath of office were pronounced in j
i a clear resounding voice and the re- j
; sponse was distinctly heard in every
portion of the chamber, where, except y{
| as it was broken by the voices of the !
; officials themselves, quiet reigned su
1 pretne for the lime. The ceremony
was simple, but of tense interest, and
spectators were <luly impressed.
As Mr. Sherman lowered his, right
hand it was grasped in congratulation
by iris predecessor and a ripple of ap
plause was heard*throughout the gal
leries .
At the instance of Senator Culber
i son, chairman of tlie Democratic cau
cus, the Senate adopted the following
resolutions expressive of its apprecia
tion of tiie able and impartial man
ner in which the Vice-President had
presided over that body during four
1 years, as follows;
’’Resolved, That the thanks of the
Senate are hereby tendered to Hon.
Charles W. Fairbanks for tha dignified
Impartial and courteous manner in
which he has presided over Its delib
orations during the present session.”
Fairbanks** Farewell. r
Mr. Fairbanks delivered his fare
well .address, referring with evlden
emotion to the uniform support thai
i-ad been given him, and to the pleas
ant associations throughout his ad
ministration. Following is the tex
of his speech:
“Senators:—Again a new administra
tion succeeds to the control of national
affairs In conformity tfith the will ol
the people, expressed in their sovereign
capacity, under the orderly processe
of the law. We witness the lmprMfctvc
transference of national power in ac

the administration which assumes au
thority under such agreeable ausplcei
will meet in full measure our nationa
needs; that we may continue In happ]
accord with the powers of the world
that peace, contentment, and progresi
may prevail throughout our borders
and that our country may grow In ma
terial strength; and more than thai
and better than that, that education

are our chief sources of pride, maj

final leave of you; and in doing so ]
beg to return to you my profoundest
thanks for the resolution which yot
have just adopted, personal to myself
To receive a vote of your approval
without division is an honor which J
shall carrv with me to the end of m>
days and transmit to my children as
a priceless legacy.
“In these latter days much severe
criticism is heard of the Senate of the
United States, but it has always been
so since the time of our fathers, and
that it will continue 1 have no doubt.
The record of the Senate, to which Its
present membership has contributed, is

none better made by any legislrti\e as

will stand comparison with thw record
of tne Senate in its elder days. It has

“The Senate of the United States
must remain an important part of a
thoroughly independent, co-ordinate
branch of the government, nelthft/
arrogating to itself functions not de

nor, upon the other hand, subtracting
from its legitimate powers. Its legis
lative duties are vast, while Its duties
with respect to treaties and appoint

great moment. A servile Senate was
not contemplated by Its founders. Thh
Senate Is today as jealous us ever of

ery general, but to the extent that it
vas the occasion resembled, for a

Dz. Hale’s prayer was as follows;
