WASHINGTON. D. C.. March 1?The national capital to-night shelters the out-going and In-coming presidents and vice presidents, and preparations for the grand ceremonies marking the change of administrations go on with feverish haste and bustle. Major McKlnley and Mr. Hobait were welcomed to their future home by one of those glorious, bright days such us aWshlngton takes pride In when In the mood. The entry of the two was mado with little ceremony and comparatively slight public demonstration. Governors, generals and men with ono title or another, past or present, continue to arrive with each train, ao that It is no longer ?? risk to address* with some title almost anyone who may blind about the hotels public offices. Of the prospective new cabinet, there ;jr>; In the city Messrs. Sherman, (luge, Alger. Gary and Wilson, besides McKenna Is expected to-night or to-morrow, and a possibly cabinet officer In Col. J. J. McCoolc, of New York, who arrived during the day. The arrival of the president-elect, and the presence of such a large pro; -i lion of public men of Influence suftli"nt to affect the formation of the new cabinet, started a flood of gossip con *rning the members of President McK Inlay's official family, but through all the fog of gurss work and speculation the fact shows clearly that the cabinet is still Incomplete, and for precisely the nam* reason that It has been known to be for about a week, namely, that the president-elect desires to honor New York with a place, and that a man has not yet been found acceptable at once to the leaders In the Empire state polltics, and willing to take the position which the cabinet slate, as arranged, marks as his berth. Senator-elect Piatt saw McKlnley during the afternoon, but the conference waa Indecisive. The Incoming of ho many visitors of note also atarted the social activities of the town, and there were innumerable dinners and receptions in the fashionable parts of the city in honor of Inaugural sojourners. Grand Marshal Porter kept hard at work at his quarters arranging for the big parade on Thursday. A rough total of the number of regular militia soldiers and jailors who will be in line whowa an agRregatc of eleven to twelve thousand. The escort of President-elect McKlnley, when. in accordance wmi custom, he rides down the avenue to the capita) to tako the oath of ofllce, will number about 5,00t). The civic organ)* tious vary bo greatly In strength that It has been found absolutely impossible to make an exact statement of the number of men they will have in Hue, but ft Is estimated at obour 12.000. The occupants of the reviewing atand and vicinity doubtless will rejoice In the ord'*r that "Hall to the Chief" shall bo performed by jjo band except that at the heed of the column. Several hundred bands, it may be stated, may be in line. Another direction to the band leaders is that in the civic, organizations, where they will be unusually thick, bands following each other In column shall play alternately. As the day wore on the depot** clogged with the rush of the in-comers, and there was a constant succession of loaded trains bearing individuals, military bodies and clubs. At the Pennsylvania and Baltimore Ohio stations It was estimated that 4f>,000 men hud been brought to Washington to attend the inauguration, und the Baltimore & Ohio officials said their bookings was larger than any other former occasion. Arrangements have been perfected by which each Important stage In the outdoor ceremonials will be announced by the booming ot cannon. A national salute of twenty-one guns will be flred when President Cleveland leaves the while house iti company with Mr. McKinley for the capitol, and another suIute of twenty-one guns will announce # that they have entered the capitol. One pun will be flred when Mr. McKln.'ey fakes the oath of office. a national salute of twenty-one guns at the conclusion of tho inaugural address, when President McKlnley and Mr. Cleveland hegln their return inarch to the white ItouKe, and the same number of guns when, the tour made, President McKlnley enters the white house or the reviewing stnnd. Locally, the all-Important question new l? the weather, and of that the weather sharps fight shy, and ai?k time ' r mature deliberation and the further development of meteorological facts before hazarding an opinion. One thing they will announce, und that is that the temperature will he entirely comfortable Snow Is out of the question. Whether it will rnin or not Is an open question.

Major McKlnley loft the white house about 10 o'clock and Immediately returned to the Kbbltt. There being nothing definite known as to the time of his return no crowd had collected about tho hotel doors. Major McKlnley alighted from his carriage, hurried through the corridor, and took the elevator for his upartments. where ho remained the rest of the evening. ARRIVAL AT WASHINGTON. The Pmhliut?KlMt and Party Lodcnt In til* Ktibltt tlona*. WASHINGTON, March Z?Presidentelect McKlnley, with hit family and large party of friend?, arrived safely In the capital city n minute after 11 o'clock this morning, over the Pennsylvania railroad. The weather waa cheerful and Wright, with warm sunshine over all and a temperature If anything too high to be negotiable. A large crowd had assembled at the Pennsylvania station long before the train arrived and it required the efforts of a considerable force of police to keep clear the approaches to the station. There was a good deal of disappointment expressed among these people over the absence of military In the escort, but it wan by special request of the President-elect that such formality was dispensed with on this occasion, so the crowd had to be content with the sight of the magnificently attired staff of governor Bushnell, of Ohio, in place of the expected military parade. Only a few persons had been admitted within the enclosure at the station where the train was to atop. There was Chairman Bell, of the executive committee, with reception committeemen Berrett, Parker, Glover, Norrls, Lowell and Britten, specially designated us u vub-commlttee to receive the presidential party In place of the full committee. Governor Bushnell and staff were present in uniform. J. Addison Porter, who will bij The President's secretary, was arly In hand, having hurried away from the white house for the purpose. He was to look after the personal comfort of thPresident-elect, but as he himself said, he had little to do In this direction, thanks to th^ well-arranged pro^ramm* of the executive committee and the hearty oo-operatlon of the police authorities. About a minute behind the schedule time the special train came rolling into the station amid the cheers of a number of spectators who had gathered at the lower end of the big shed to watch for its appearance. As soon us the cars came to a stop. Governor Bushnell boarded the train, entering car No. 36, where the President-elect with the members of his Immediate family were In waiting. The executive committee also paid their respect* to the incoming chief magistrate, and without delay th* party started tor the carriages which were to convey them to the Ebbltt. Notwithstanding the long Journey and the broken night, nearly all of the party looked fresh and bright. The President-elect In particular appeared to be In the best of spirits and those who gazed in his face for irlgna of the illness from which fie nas srmerea wry iixcimj, ?? vain for any sign of dlstre** or Impaired vitality. It was generally remarked by the onlookers that he was certainly stouter and of better complexion than when he was last seen In Washington. Mrs. McKlnley also appeared t?? advantage. She was attlrtd In a dark travelling? garb, and happiness beamed from every llnanieu: an she came forth Into the bright sunshine on the open platform. After a short greeting to rome Immediate friends who stood near, the party formed a line ort?! started through the station. Messrs. Parker and Berrett, tall robust men, came Just behind the police, who cleared the way down thf? platform. The President-elect with Mr* McKlnley holding clo?e to his arm, came next, with Chairman Hell and Mr. J. Addison Porter on either ttide to protect them from the pressure of the crowd. Colonel lirltton. with the greatest care, e?c?'rted Mrs. McKlnley, senior, mother of the* Prosldent-e/ect, and the remainder of the party took their places in the line Just as they alighted from the cars, the staff of the governor of Ohio bringing up the rear. As he pasied the head of the train. Major" McKlnley did a graceful thing, which was quickly appreciated by the crowd. Jle paused, beckoned to one of the party who bore aloft a great bouquet of cut llowers, and carefully selecting from It some white carnations of wond?rful size, ho handed them to the engineer, nil grimy and persplt-.'ug, who sat nloft In his cab. Instead of turning to the right through the nearest pas-age to the street, the party went straight through the station and were .sealed ot once in the carriages provided. There were ten of these, and that occupied by the Presidentelect was drawn by a gray and roan team. His companions were Mr*. McKlnley, Chairman Bell and Mr. Porter. The second carriage contained Mother McKlnley. Colonel Jlrltton, Mrs. Porter and C. C. (Jlover, of the executive committee. The others of the party found places as they emerged from the ritation without special arrangement. The people were packed no densely In front of the Pennsylvania station, and the electric cars made the horses so restive that it waa not deemed wise to wait to form the earrlages In line, and ns fast as they were filled with passengers Chey were dispatched by the members of the reception committee having the matter in ? h.n k-Consequently equipage occupied by the President-elect was nearly at Its destination before the last of the carriages started from the Nation. As the party .1... until., ruitflirle si?t ill) u UrOVtt till III': w,.. chcrr, In which the Ohlonns, members of Troop A.

All the prepaiatlon? Indicated that the entrance would be made on r,ho Fourteenth Htreet ride of the hotel. There van n guard of policemen at the door anil the corridor leading In from that point wan -opt ontcnlatlouMly clour. Tho ladlcR* entrance from Jb' street wan left comparatively unno tlced, nave for a policeman or two t< keep back the mreet crowd. Women were almost In a majority It tho crowd and most of them were arm ?d with bouquets u* though deslgnlnj to commit floral assaults on tho incoming administration. At twenty minutes past eleven then was u cry of "Here they come," as th? first carriage of the Presidential partj drove up Fourteenth street. Everyone crowded forward toward the corrldoi leading to tho Fourteenth street en trance. The line of policemen and hole people bent, .wavered and broke before the pressure and let the most Impetu ous of the crowd surge down the corridor in n wild rush to the Fourteenth street door. But It was only a feint The carriage never stopped, but rur briskly around the corner to the i street front. The police reformed ant pinned the mass of the crowd down li the cul desao toward the FourteeittJ sereet entrance. Another body of po llcemen emerged from the ladles' par lor and formed a solid line of blue coati from the ladles' entrance elevator, flftj feet away. In an Instant Major and Mrs. McKIn ley were out of the carriage and Insldi the hotel under convoy of Cltairma; Bell and Secretary Porter. Mark Hun no. uenerai Aiger, coionei iucuuuft ??i? Stewart Woodford, or New York, hat been given u hint of the movement urn greeted the new President before any one else. Mr. McIClnley once Inside tlx hotel entered the elevator, the grey Cla< boy In charge grinned comprehensively pulled the rope and sent the car ?hoot Ing skyward, and Secretary Porter heaving a sigh of relief raised a mud ruffled silk hat in grave salute to hli disappearing chief and then elbowed hi, way over to the entrance of the ladles parlor to receive the gentle muledletlom of the ladies pinned (n behind the po llcemen, the disappointed ones admit ting that the Hank movement had l?eei cleverly done, but declaring the secre tary "too Wan for anything." Behind the presidential carriage then followed a score of other conveyance) with the remainder of the Cantou partj and Governor liushneH'n staff. The] were safely landed In the hotc-l nnd th< section of the house reserved for then waa guarded against the Intrusion o the crowd. Major Mt Klnley received i few friends quits informality and thai settled down to rest and a light lunch eon, but ther? was no semblance of i public reception. A large number of visitors cnlled a the hotel during the' afternoon lnten< upon seeing the President-elect, un mindful oft he fact that he was hi neet of uu opportunity to recuperate aftei his Journey, but his secretary, Mr. Porter, took a decided stand at once, urn send word that no cards were to be re celved. Thin turned the tide for a tlmi upon the secretary himself, and he woj soon obliged to make a similar rule at to his own callers. Mr. Porter explain ed to the President-elect what he hat done ami how the local committee pro posed to carry out the programme Everything was found to be to the sat Isfactlon of the President-elect.

FAR INTO NIGHT Both Houses of Congress Were Struggling Desperately TO WIND UP THE BUSINESS Of the Session?International Monetary Conference Bill Acrced to-Ulm Bepnlf lleen Senators Hake a fltatunant?Tfro Hem Itae a Bur Time of It Sea ah t Amendments to ZUrer land Harkot Item* Coaearred In (bf the BeiM| Which Cary the Ohio and Greet Kaa? awha Blwr Appropriations, WASHINGTON, D. C., March 2.~Tht senate had Its share of Inauguration crowds to-day, and they were compensated by something more than the rou tine procedure of appropriation bills. The bill for an International monetary, conference wan taken up at 1 (/clock, and after two hours of animated debate the house amendments were agreed to without the formality of a yea and nay vote. This is the final legislative staga of the bill, and it now goes to the president. The debate on the bill brought out earnest speeches from the silver Republican senators, and frequent reference to the break at the St. Louis convention. Mr. Dubois warned his former Republican associates that the stiver Republicans had thrown off thelf old connections for good. Mr. Teller, of Colorado, referred to the choice of Mr. Sherman as secretary of state, and Mr. Gage ae secretary of the treasury, as indicating that the incoming administration would not be in sympathy with an International monetary conference or agreement. The fortltication appropriation bill was passed early in the day. The deficiency appropriation bill led to an animated controversy over adding a number of claims, aggregating $587,900, under the Bowman act. An amendment covering the claims was finally adopted. Mr. Quay (Rep., Pa.) stated that aev* eral nominations of Pennsylvania postmasters had been erroneously given to the press last night as confirmed, when in fact they were still subject to objection. The house is working night and day. The session began at 10 and continued far into the night. The galleries and surrounding corridors buzzed with Inauguration visitors. The spectators were hardly repaid for their patience, however, as the day session was a dull grind of routine, save for an hour, when Mr. Dalxell (Rep., Pa.) made an elaborate defense of Justice Shlras, of the supreme court, who was attacked a few nights ago in the house for the alleged reversal of his position on the income tux question when the case was before the supreme court. He disclaimed speaking for Justice Shlras, and stated that no one knew exactly how the court had divided. "-Mr. McMillln (Dem.. Tenn.) and Mr. t>e Armond (Dem., Mo.), who participated In the original attack, both reiterated their charges that Justice* Shlras had reversed himself and challenged Mr. Dalzell to deny it An attempt was made to bring up the anti-prize fight bill, which came over as unfinished business from yesterday, but it was shut oft by short recesses awaiting conference reports which would take precedence over it. After the recess the fortifications appropriation bill came over from the senate and was sent to conference. At 4:40 the house took a recess until 7:30 p. m. The beacon on the dome of the capi tol was aflame to-nignt, ana xuo two rnarblo wings were brilliantly Illuminated. The legislative throat was choked ; with bills and conference reports, and It < required night sessions of both houses to dear It. The President's executive clerk appeared with the veto of the Immigration bill. It was immediately submitted to the house by tho speaker and several of the paragraphs received scattering outbursts of applause. Some of the friends of the bill were In favor of an attempt to pasi It over the veto Immediately, but it was agreed to postpone its consideration until to-mor- j row. After a tedious wait the conference report on the sundry civil, reporting a partial agreement was brought in, and the wrangling began over the items still in dispute between the two houses, in- ? eluding almost all the important senate 3 amendments. There was a lively fight over the su? j gar bounty amendment of $1,085,000, . -'I which resulted in concurrence by a vote ;j :>f 83 to 67. Shortly after midnight it looked as if i the house had struck a serious snag. Mr. Pearson (Rep., N. C.,) moved to concur in the senate amendment reducing the appropriation for Wlnyaw bay, S, and In the course of his remarks denounced ipany Items In the bill as unWorthy, this among them. When his motion was defeated, he made the point !j of no quorum. "If we must squander , * the people's money." he shouted, "let i lis do so by daylight." Mr. Cannon appealed to him to withdraw tho point. He declined to do so. For twenty minutes he held tho house at bay. Theti he yielded to persuasion !]| uul the work went on. The following river and harbor items jj were agreed to: Oakland. Cal., 12.000,000. with an aup thorization for u completed project to cost $G6C,000. (Ireat Kanawha. W. Va., 5273,000.
