Hut een the resident population of
-Washington is in a sense tr inslent and
the average Washlngtonlan found it dilli
cult to answer man of the queries Prob
abl the greatest number of questions
-concerning one thing were interrogations
regarding the location of the Congres
pional Librarj and the quickest waj of
getting there The Na Yard with the
esaels which form a portion of the In
auguration Meet was another Mecca for
the visitors and man were the compli
cations which resulted from ignorance of
the intricate rules governing tie jssuance
of transfers on the street cars
Tlie street car arrangements here are
unliki those of any other clt in the coun
try and the wheel like plan on which the
streets are laid out caused more than a
little confusion to visitors who were un
familiar with the cit A sailor from the

The militiaman who omes to Washing

Fpend and he does it without hesitation
Jt was a common thing jesterda to see
soldiers in private uniforms rol ing atout
the streets in automobiles while captains
and majors rode on btrect cars The de
mocracv of the militia is responsible for
this In the Twintv -third New York Itig

In their pilgrimages about the down
town streets the soldiers of the various
riglments and companies of those regi
ments geuerall kept together and some
of the parties were co large as to resem
ble entire companies At Pennslvanla
Avenue and Thirteenth Street last night
the crowd was so dense that it was dill
cult for a person to make any progress in
gelling through the solid mass of Tiu
manltv A number of caialrjmen from
norm visiting troops tried In -vain to pen
etrate the crowd at this point The
could make no impression Tinall a
joungster with the chevrons of a bugkr

It to his lips sounded the charge

Street fakirs were In full bloom jester
day Probably the most popilar souvenir
was a walking stick of red white and

of bronze and brass and other metals and
nearlj eerj one had a patriotic tinge bj
virtu of th bit of red white and blue
ribbon attached
One soldier In eompan with a part of
friends near the liotanic Gardens spied
one of the street fakirs with a large stock
of souvenirs and straigbtwav announced
his Intention of buying one of each kind
The part started up the Avenue and
some article was purchased from near
even merchant encountered When the
soldiers reached the Treasury the valiant
purchaser had a string of medals which
would have been a credit to a Treneh
field marshal
The battalion gf Porto ICican volun
teers composed of natives of the island
-were conspicuous figures about the cltj
They were easily distinguished by thiir
elark complexions and the constant look
of wonderment which their faces wore
as viewed the sights of Washlnston
a far larger cit than the had ever awn
before It Is doubtful if an thing In the
cit not excepting the Washington
Monument or the Congressional I ilirar
or the huge crowds excited their wonder
to the extent that did the pig balloons of
fered for sale b the street fakirs These
balloons are the familiar squav kers
which can be Inflated with the breath
They Uike the form of n pig and when
the air is released let out a very pig

ou was written by Chief Moore imme
diati ly after the fqree ist officials com
pleted their work last night Mr Moore
was hlghlv elattd at the prospect and
called attention to the fact that he had
inserted the word surel in the lettei
wtien he asserted that the sky would be
clear lie said he wb willing to stake
not onl hUqwn repujition but the rep
utation of the entire v cather Bureau on
the accurac of th forecast
There is not a sign of a storm east of
the Mississippi River and there Is not the
slightest indication which gives ground
for the Jeast fear that -he da will be
anv thing but a perfect one
For several das Indications have been
favorable for the pre of pleisant
weather on Inauguration Dav and the
public has been building high hopes that
the occasion of the second Inauguration
of William McKinle would prove an ex
ception as far as weather was concerned
to the general Inauguration Day rule
Since last Wednesda the forecast offi
cials at weather stations all over the
I nlted States have been instructed to
keep an especlall keen lookout for an
indications of storm weather which
might posslblv affect Washington on
March -1 The ilemenls have been kind
however and President McKinle will

morning until midnight As the i rush In
creased these temporary facilities were
emploved The trathc was principally to
nnd from the steam railway depots
though thousands of passengers took a
triii to Georgetown and the Navy Yard
On the Seventh Street line of this com
pan cars were less crowded though they
were well patronized
The various branches of the Metropol
ian Compan did an immense buslnoss
Refore work on the line had been fairly
begun for the day it became apparent
that there was going to be a congestion
of traffic To overcome this men were
sent to different points on oil lines of the
compan to watch for a possible crush
clothed av 1th authority to call out cars
for relief Within fifteen minutes be
tween 11 and 12 oclock noon about
of these relief cars were sent out

utes nnd each one from 10 o clock In th3
morning until 3 o clock in the afternoon

nntlonal cemcter Thousands of
strangers who had hoped to visit Wash
ington s tomb at Mount Vernon were sad
ly disappointed AVhen they called for
tickets for that point the railroad officials
informed them that the grounds were not
open and the trip was abandoned
There was but one complaint stringers
had to make of the service on the Metro
politan lines The transfer sstem sore
Iv puzzled and aggravated them

The inauguration services at the Found

form meeting that attracted an assembly
that completely filled the spacious audi
torium of that house of worship The
Washington Infantry of Pittsburg Pa
comprising sixty men attended in a bodv
bearing the banner of the organization
The compan marched down the aisles
and was assigned to seats In front of the

choice flowers of the early spring
Tlie paslor of the church the Rev Dr

words welcomed the soldiers from the

After a brief song service a cornet solo
b Mr Kenne and selections b the

Rev Tennis Hamlin of the Church of the

To the man guests who are In our

right too that the induction into office
of the President of 73 0uO0W people should
be attended with some dUpla We
Americans have no smpath with the
pomp and splendor of the courts of the
Old World and et we should not let our

The Rev Dr Hamlin however took an

and respect for law would riassert Itself
in tlie future He referred to the Capit il

The Rev Dr W IKon then Introduced
Commissioner M icfarland who said in
It seems lo me most appropriate that
we on the eve of the llrst Inauguration
of the twenticlh centurv should assemble
In the house of God and ask the blessings
of him who has been our guide in all

There Is one fortunate tiling in this

Vr Carter last nsjvt made an attempt
lit ceTent tne River ann Harbor Appro
priation bill He spike for four hours In
an endeavor to hnvc the bill fall and be
kept out of conferenct He was aided by
Mn Pettlgrew who supplied him with
Mr Carter went bVer the Items from
every State and pointed cut the Jobs
His action came as a surprise as the con
servative ex Chairman of the Republican
National Committee was supposed to be
lh accord with his party colleagues Nev
er In the hlbtor of the Senate has such
a surprise been sprung and the benate
was unable to save Itself
He went over the various items and
asked Mr Depew if he knew where
Manatuck Harbor was in New York
Mr Depew said he did not
Air Carter said that this was only one
item He then asked Mr Aldrich if he
Knew where n point was in Rhode Island
for which JIPOOO was asked
Mr Aldrich did not repl
Mr Carter then returned to Manatuck
Harbor and said that the water was
from one to two feet deep there and the
turtles had to tow the cattish out through
the inlet He Bcored a number of items
as Jobs and said many of the rivers
referred to could be naviguted lietter on
horseback or In a buckboard than in a
rovvboat He said that bunches of
money were to be expended
Mr Wellington said that the River and
Harbor bill should not be passed as It
was a steal
Mr Carter referred to the river and
harbor jobs In Maine which were put
Into the bill solely for the purpose of get
ting votes He went all through the
bill and called attention to harbors of
two feet of water including the Pocheco
River in New Hampshire with nine
Inches of water He also called atten
tion to the 1owow River in Massa
Mr Kenne held that the statements of
the Senator from Montana were ver Im
portant and suggested the absence of a
luoram The roll ntfx called nnd fort
six Senators responded
Tillman defended the rivers In
South Carolina HerraldHhat the whole
scheme was a steal And his State waned
its share
Mr Carter called the bill a financial
complication and an opera bouffe
measure He held that every backwoods
man knew the bill as the pork bill
it will fall iu ever- future Congress
said hi and it should fall It is without
decency or merit Men have stood mute
in this Senate during this session because
of this bill ami their honest convictions
have been sold for aporonrlations for
their home harbors The bill ought to be
vetoed if it passed It is a general steal
and each fellow wants his share
Referring to the Items for Arkansas he
said that Mr Jones should never open his
mouth in the Senate again
This Is a loot said he and tho Sena
tor knows it
Tlie conference report on the Sundr
Civil bill was b ought in by Mr Allison
He bald thet the conferees had disagreed
mainly on appropriations for Governors
Island the pasturing of sheep in tne
Northwest and the three big expositions
at St IxiuK Ruffalo and Charleston He
moved that the Senate insist upon its
amendments This was done
Mr Carter then resumed his argument
He went through Alabama Tennessee
1 lorina Mississippi and Missouri
He then charged Mr Mason with hav
ing had his mouth shut b an appropria
tion for Illinois
At this point it was suggested that the
Senate go into executive session Mr
Carter agreed on condition that he be al
lowed to resume his speech when the
doors were opened This was agreed to
and at 2 SO the Senate went into execu
tive session
Mr Berry gave notice that he would I
