WASHINGTON. D. C„ March 6.—The closing act of tho drama. "The King I» Dead; Long Live the King," which has been played in Washington came with Uh» Inaugural ball,
perhaps, has there been a better representation from all sections of the country at such a function, for In addition to the hosts of the republican North, East and West, there was in the gay
assemblage a mighty representation of tho beauty and the chivalry of the South, which has come to look upon Mr. Taft a* Its first republican President.
President Taft and Mrs, Taft, with their family party, arrived at tho ballroom at half-past nine, and from that time until the small hours there was never a halt in the merriment.
The great Inner court of the building was the picture of an artist, done in the rich mellow tones of old ivory and sienna.
The tail columns simulating S^iet na marble, which support the great arched roof of the structure, were, as usual, the chief features in color, the draperies anti furnishings chiming In
with their soft, subdued tones.
This court was arched over by a canopy of deep cream bunting: the walls were draped with the same, everywhere the old ivory tone being carried out. <he only notes of color being in
