Seeking Glimpse.
Rome, Friday, Jan. 3.—(By the Asso
- ciated Press).—Rome was astir early
this morning. Seemingly the entire pop
ulation streamed toward the station,
■where President Wilson was welcomed
by King Victor Emmanuel. The day had
been made a national holiday.
The crowds thronged the streets over
■which Sir. Wilson was to drive on liia
way to the Quirinal. Hours before the
arrival of the presidential train crowds
packed the Via Xazionale, which was
lined with double rows of soldiers. Flags
were everywhere fluttering, every win
dow and balcony was filled with eager
watchers, and the roofs were black with
• people. Even in trees and high on lamp
posts there were men and women.
At 10:30 there came the first distant
' shouts of "Viva America!" which was
taken up by the crowd. I^ike a wave the
crowds rose on tiptoes to catch a first
1 glimpse of the president. An engine
whistle was heard in the distance and
loud shouts broke forth, rising into a
deafening roar as the presidential train
roiled into the station.
King and Queen Greet Him.
Tnside the station were the king and
rçueen and all members of the cabinet,
h pa tied by Premier Orlando and Foreign
Minister Sonnino, wearers of the collars
• of the Order of Annunziata, ranking as
cousins of the king. Members of the
diplomatic corps, presidents of the sen
ate and chamber of deputies, members of
parliament and military and naval au
thorities were present.
When his train stopped President Wil
son was the first to alight. lie shook
hands with King Victor Emmanuel, who
introduced him to Queen Helena. Tn the
meantime Mrs. Wilson and Miss Marga
ret Wilson ioined them. The king wel
comed Mr. Wilson cordially to the Italian
capital and introduced members of the
party to the official welcoming delega
tion. The king said to Mr. Wilson: ^
"I hope yon will feel at home here."
"To b,> in Rome is one of my greatest
pleasures." answered Mr. Wilson.
The king and Mr. Wilson then re
viewed a company of soldiers drawn up
at the station, while the band played
"The £titr Spangled Banner." After a
short conversation in t h e^ royal waiting
room, the king and Mr. Wilson appeared
in front of the station.
Mayor Expresses Rome's Welcome.
This was the signal for a great out
burst of enthusiasm, cannons being fired,
soldiers presenting arms and the historic
bell on the capitol ringing, which is done
only on greatest national occasions.
At the Plaza Esedra. Prince Prosper«
Colonna. the mayor of Rome, surrounded
bv aldermen and liveried servants, await
ëd the" arrival of the procession. Prince j
Colonna delivered an address, in \
he welcomed the president m the name
of the Eternal City and expressed the
gratitude of Rome and Italy for all
America did materially and spiritually to
ward winning the war. The moment
Prince Colonna's address was over, the
cheering broke fortfc with redoubled vi
The procession turned down the Via
Nationale, a long straight thorofare
leading along directly to the Quirinal.
The smile of the president caused an
ovation which became mope tremendous
as he drove along. From windows flow
ers were showered upon Mrs. Wilson.
They acknowledged the people's saluta
tions, their bows producing even great
er outbursts of enthusiasm.
Reception at Palace.
When President Wilson and his party
reached the Quirinal, they were conduct
ed inside the palace to the throne room,
where thefe was an informal reception.
Mrs. Wilson and Queen Helena chatted
for a few moments, while the president
talked earnestly with King Victor
Emannuel, Tremier Orlando and others.
The massive staircases were lined
with the young men of the king's house
hold guard.
The president then was conducted on
a tour of the rooms of the palace given
over to hospital uses. Scores of Italian
soldiers greeted,him from their beds or
standing on • their crutches. The presi
dent smiled continuously or waved greet
ings to the men with his bat as he
Sleep Adjoining Hospital Wards.
The president walked with the king
and Mrs. W 7 ilson with the queen. It was
explained to the visitors that the royal
family had not lived in the palace since
the beginning of the war, all its rooms
now being given over to Red Cross work.
The members of the president's party
will sleep in portious of rooms that have
been screened from the aHjoining hos
pital wards by tapestries and hangings.
President and Mrs. Wilson later took
luncheon with the royal family at the
Villa Savoy, which is just outside the
walls of the city, standing in a magnifi
cent park.
The president took advantage of the
pleasant weather conditions to take a
stroll in the park of the villa. King Vic
tor Emmanuel accompanied him and the

any character need be anticipated. The
senate members will meet in caucus Sun
day afternoon at 3 o'clock, and the prob
ability is that Senator J. E. Edwards,
who has served most creditably in that
position during several sessions, will be
chosen as president.
This honor could be claimed by Sena
tor Charles H. Williams of Powell, who
is entitled to it through seniority, and
the fact that he has not previously been
so honored, but the probabilities are
that Senator Williams will prefer to take
the office of president pro tem. at the
conclusion of the session, which will give
him the opportunity of serving in the

mentioned for secretary of the senate—
Oscar Crutch field of Mhsoula and

Made Academy Member, Too.
President Wilson was made a member
of the ' Reale Accademia de Scienzi." or

The president and Mrs. Wilson were;
seated between the king and queen, while
among others present were the American
ambassador. Thomas Nelson Page, and
other members of the diplomatic corps

and scientists.
Senator d'Onidio, who is president of
the academy, hailed the president as the
worthy representative of the culture of
the new world, which now revivifies the
ancient culture of the old world.
President Wilson, in replying, deplored
the fact that "science should in a nation]
which had made science its boast, have
been put to such dishonorable uses hi

Rome, Jan. 3.—President Wilson was
the guest of honor at the official dinner
given at the Quirinal tonight. There
were only two addresses, by Kins Victor
Emmanuel and by Mr. Wilson. The king
said in part:
"The principles in which you in mag-1
nificent synthesis have summed up the
ideal reasons of the war for liberty, find
resonance in Italian hearts. The best
traditions of Italian culture, the liveliest)
currents <>f our national th "ts. have con

toward the establishment of the interna
