T A PEACEFUL PROTES Against the Inauguration of His L&te Op ponent Was the Extent of the KOlb Re volt Gov.-Elect Oates Declared that If He Did Not Believe that He Had Been Honestly Elected He Would Not Tak the Office. . Montgomery, Ala.," Dec 1. Col. W. C. Gates has been duly installed as governor and not a blow has been struck, not a gnn fired nor a drop of blood spilled, notwithstanding all the wild rumors that have been sent out for a week past. The day has been ideal in every respect, Last night and this morning perhaps 200 of Kolb's fol lowers came to the city, but there was no display of firearms of any sort. At 10 o'clock this morning the local and visiting military companies began to move about the streets, getting ready for the ceremonies, but there was no great crowd and everything was serene. It was spread in the crowd at 10:30 o'clock that Kolb had taken the oath before a justice of the peace down town, and was coming up to the capi ol to make a speech. About 11 o'clock he appeared, walking up the half-mile ascent to the grounds. He was es corted by perhaps fifty persons. He and his party were readily passed through the gates, but upon ascend ing the steps leading up to the stone walk approaches the police told them, as they had told everybody else, that they must proceed to the right or left upon the grounds. Kolb and his party proceeded around to the right of the building upon the grass. Presently W. S. Reese, Jr., who ran for attorney general on Kolb's ticket went to one of Gov. Jones' secretaries and asked if Kolb would be allowed to make a speech in the grounds. The conratgrff ronl A(1 f lint Vi A ,r,ll 1 (1 Tint. speak officially. Kolb then asked if there was any ob jection to his speaking on the streets outside. Gov. Jones told him there was none whatever. Accordingly Kolb -and his followers left the grounds. Outside the gates they proceeded to the sidewalk opposite. There a coun try wagon was pressed into service and Kolb with several of his leaders mounted it. The most liberal esti mates do not place the crowd of white men who gathered around it at over 200, and many of those were democrats. There were also a hundred or two of curious local negroes. No arms were seen upon any person. Kolb delivered a very short speech, in which he asserted that he had been lawfully elected and had been defraud ed; that he had pursued this course simply to emphasize the position of himself and purty against the usurpa tion of his office. He stated that if a fair and honest contest law was passed by the present general assembly that would settle all the trouble and be satisfactory to the people as well as to him. If this act of justice were denied, then he would make an appeal to the general government. He concluded by advising moderation and against any unlawful proceedings. Half an hour later the inaugural procession escorting Gov. -Elect Oates moved up the broad avenue to the cap itol grounds. Gov. Jones and Gov. Elect Oates were in the first carriage. As the procession passed along there was not the slightest disorder or mark of disrespect of any kind. Arriving at the capitol the customary salute was fired by the artillery. Prayer was offered by Rev. Dr. Eager, of the Baptist church; and tlien Gov. Jones introduced Oates in a brief but forcible address. The governor-elect- t.hpn rlflivfrfrl his man crnrnl undress. He said he was satisfied bevon doubt that he was elected by 'a large majority, or he would not accept the office. He then touched upon national affairs, and spoke in the highest terms of the national democratic administra tion and what it had accomplished for the welfare of the country. He closed with a high compliment to the remark ably successful administration of his predecessor, and announced himself ready to take the oath of office. This was administered by Chief Justice Brickell on the Bible which is pre served in the state's archives as the one used when Jefferson Davis was in augurated president of the confederacy on the same spot. This ended the ceremony, an artillery salute again ringing out and the new governor was conducted to the execu tive office by his predecessor where a reception was held for some time, hun dreds of ladies as well as gentlemen congratulating the new governor. By 7 o'clock the city was restored to its normal appearance save for the figures in uniform who were scattered about the city on pleasure bent. No disturbance of any sort occurred. CHRISTIAN SOCIOLOGY. Prof. George D. Herron Reads m Paper on the "Transfiguration of Society. Detroit, Mich., Dec 8. A last even ing's session of the American Institute of Christian Sociology, Prof. George D. Herron read his last paper. It was on the "Transfiguration of Society. n The professor said that we speak of ours as an intensely practical age. We confess God, but we live as though God were dead. He thought that what ever is not done in the name of Christ, whether buying or selling, or eating and drinking, is wrongly done. He believed his grace was sufficient to manage railroads, cook dinners, build houses, conduct law suits, till farms and administer the finances of state. Either Christ is sufficient for every thing or he is sufficient for nothing. THE DEPOSIT OF GOLD On United States Bond Purchases Nearly Completed. New York, Dec 3.
