Storm In the Neirthvvetet Mnj Reticle
llNliilixlon em lleimln
A storm is coming and according to
careful observation It Is due to urine In
ashineiton on Monda Inauguration
Dav unless it Is intercepted and retarded
in its progress To dea It to counter
act it er chanse its course is now the
great aim and ambition of the authoritli
at the Weather Bureau v bile the
would not make an official statement
cither that there would or would not be
inclement weather on March 4 it is a
fact nevertheless that the are fearful
Chief Moore expects to be able to state
with a reasonable degree of accurac
after the observations are made tills
morning Just what the atmospheric con
ditions will be on Inauguration Day It
Is the practice of the bureau not to make
forecasts for more than fortv -eight hours
ahead as It cannot be done with any
certainty for a greater period of time
The fact is that the great Storm King
has marshaled his hosts far out In the
Northwest in British Columbia north
and west of Montana and is marching
them on In a southeasterly ellrectIou
Computing from the velocity with which
storms travel at this season of the year
and considering tho existing conditions
unless Intercepted the are due to svoop
down upon the Capital of the Nation Just
at the time when Old Sol should be show
Ins his shining countenance above the
eastern horizon Should tint prove to be
the case Jupiter ll mills will christen
the second four years reign of William
McKInle with a downpour of rain and
baptize the legions hre assembled with
an unwelcome and untimely shower
Againrt all this thcro ie however a
ver favorable condition which portends
good weather for inauguration and had
the meteorologists of the Weather Bu
reau power over the elements the would
augment the force of this condition The
barometer is rising In Manitoba and there
are Indications of a gradual rise today
and tonight through the Dakotas and Ne
braska If this rist proves of sufficient
magnitadc It will be able to do battle
with the oncoming storm as It advances
ami to stay its progr lor a da at least
In that case on Monday the sun will shekel
Its radiance over tho nations Capital
Should the barometer f ill nothing remains
to be done except the purchase or m ickiu
teishes umbrellas anil gum boots There
Is nothing In the Mississippi and Ohio val
leys or the Iike regions which can com
bat and thwart the advance ol the storm
The prclictions for today call for slight
ly colder weather with a rise In temper
ature on Sunda when it will be lair
balm and springlike but there remains
a big ejuestion mark after Monda

The niagnllicent Court of Honor ex
tending from Fifteenth Street to Seven
teenth Street on Pennslvanla Avenue
was Illuminated last night for the tlrst
time and the brilllancv of the scene pre
sented full mtets the expectations of the
Inaugural Committee The Illumination
was In the nature of a test and so well
satlslled were Chairman Edson and other
members of the eomnittec that It Is prob
able th it tin order will be issued todiy
directing tho illumination of the court to
night for several hours and each suc
ceeding night up to anil Including Wed
nesda night The President lew ed the
splendid scene from the White House
windows and expressed great satisfaction
with Its appearance
The beauty of the court far exevds
that of anv previous Inauguration and
ono of the chief reasons for this fn t Is
that an unobstriieted view of both the
hlte House and Lufa ette Square are
to be qjitalned from Pennsylvania Avenue
Heretofore st inels have been erected dl
rectl In front of the Executivo Mansion
and opposite fronting on the park but
this time acting upon the suggestion of
Chairman Edsou the stands have been
erected in fiont of the Treasury and
State War and Navy buildings Tlio
Presidents reviewing stand Is in front of
the northwest scctioi of the White House
Grounds west of the west gate and
across Executive Avenue
The great white columns thirt -eight in
number which extend along the north
side of the court and about the drive
through the grounds of the mansion are
mounted Tlth a sphere upon which
are fort Iiv Ineindesceiit bulbs nnd be
low these on each column Is a crown of
flfteen incandescent lamps All of these
wero lighted for about in hour last night
and tho elTeet was hUlily satisfactory
Each of tho eight pjlons is surmounted
with n large vase of asbestos and on the
nights of the gre it fetes it Is planned to
burn a non lllumiintlng powder which
emits a steady smoke In the interior of
each pIon Is a 1000 tandle power pro
jector and live seieens of tlllTerent colors
which win be reflected on the smoke as
it arises front the vases A test was made
of the projectors and se reens lust night
nnd showed that the effect would be both
novel nnd lietiutiful Hundreds of electric
lights strung along the reviewing stands
added brllllane to the scene jml added
much to the spectacular effcot Thou
