Washington, Jan 2 -President Taft
Hinlled his New Year's greeting to
the world today.
It wjk the second thno that the
President nnd Mrs. Taft olllclated
as host and hostess nt tho time
honored function, the Whlto House
New Year's receptlim. lu dellnneo of

tq commence the reception pt the gild
ed diplomats, thb Judiciary, and tho
government olllclnls, all of whom wcro
received before tho latch was lifted
to tho common people.
Thero was a clmroctor for every
rolo In u world drama among tho
crowil that twisted lu a persistent
and stamping lino from tho Whlto
Houso doors down Pennsylvania
avenue. Possessors of shiny elbows
Jostled bloods In fur-lltred overcoats
with familiar conteuiptunusucss, ma
trons of determined physiognomy kept
a hawkllko watch for ndvantageous
places In the line. Thoro were lean,
thero wero fat, thero wero tall, anil
there wero sniallv lu tho thousands
that panic to shako tho hand of
President Taft and to 'wish him n
Happy New Year.
With tho llrst dep boom of tho
great hall clock at eleven, four bug
lers stepped out from tho wind unit
sounded tlio Presidential call. Tho
President uudQlrs. Taft appeared at
tho top or tho brond winding stulr
and came down to receive tho Vlco
Presldent and Mrs. Shermun. nnd. th?
members of the caljlnel and their
wives. The party than mnvod to the
southern end of tho Blue Room whero
tho President and Vice-President and
tho cabinet members formed a re
ceiving lino nnd the ladles took up
their places to tho right of them.
Then commenced tho reception or tho
diplomatic corps.
This Is ono of the most gorgeous
spectacles that tho National. Capital
witnesses In tho -entire year. He
decked nnd bcrlbtioned with tho
orders of their monarchs, hi nil tho
(iplcndnr of their court costumes, tho
representatives of tho forolgn mitlnni
filed oust the President. It wus u
brilliant panoply of colors of red nnd
gold and blue, scrlntlllatliig hero and
thero with the bhlnlng helmets 'of
tho Germans nnd tho silks of tho
Oriental uiuhnsuiidors and ministers.
Tho uuibiissadnrs wero led by Huron
Hongelmuller von Hengervnr, Iho
Austro-IIungnrlun Ambassador, who,
slnco ,tho last New Year'n reception
has succeeded to tho rank of dean or
diplomatic corps. Following him camo

and Chilean embassies, tho repre
sentatives of those iniiutrlos hnvlng
died In the past year, nnd no suc
cessors having fts yet been bent by
their governments.
After the .umhussndnrs came tho
ministers, hrudnd by fionor Hon Jon
nuln Bernardo f'nlvo, the Costa Rlcan
Minister who has been for years dean
of tho ministerial continent. Tho Inst
in this linn wns Mr. H. JJ nryn,
Minister from Norway, who was pre
sented to tho President only it fow
weeks ugo. Kuch ambassador nnd
mlnlstor was accompanied by his wlfo
and tho members of his suite.
Before tho lust diplomat had pnssod
from sight tho now Chief Justlco of
tho United States, F.dwnrd Douglass
AVhlto led tho assoclnto Justices of
tlm Runrnmn Court Into tho receiving
room. Thoy woro followed by 'other
members of tho Judiciary among thom
kOio Judges of tho now courts of Com-
mcrco nnd Customs Appeals, Then tho
President shook hands with the sena
tors and representatives who remain
ed lu Washington during the holt
days. There were only a few of them.
Tho congressional delegations mark
ed tho end of the llrst part of the
reception. Tbc buglers stopped from
their places with tho band, and sound
cd another spirited fanfare, as the
doors opened to the army, navy and
marlno corps olllccrs nil In their full
dress uniforms. Kvery military ofllcer
on duty lu Washington wus there,
and the gold luce of their uniforms
wns but little less gorgeous than tho
gilded dress of thu diplomats.
With the pissing of tho military,
tho Bpectuculur features of th0 recep
tion wero nt nn end, and tho lesser
government olllclnls In plain citizens

Then followed tho various patriotic
societies who are accorded rfiioclnl

Navy Union; the Mlnuto Mon; tho
the members 'or tho Oldest Inhnbf

The last of the olllchil visitors hnd
left by ono o'clock. .Mrs. Taft, Mrs.
Sherman, and tho ladles of tho
cabinet withdrew from tho reception
lino to tho Stnto Dining Room, whero
refreshments were served. In tho' Blu0
Room tho President and his cabinet
squared their sTSnlders and prepared
to receive tho long line that for hours
had been gathering along tho White
Houso walks. Tho President's Mnllo
broadened, the bugles sounded, tho
band broke Into a lively two-stop und
tho ''common people" entered.
A lieterogoueous throng typically
American filed lu to tho lively music
of tho band, quickened to hurry them
along. Tho lino moved fast until It
reached tho President, but thoro it
wus delayed by each Individual en
doavorlng to obtain a distinctively per
sonal greeting from tho host.
A foot down tho lino from tho
President btood nevernl well-groomed
and woll-hullt men apparently loung
ing carelessly about, but keeping a
careful eye on the moving lino ns It
approached the Kxecutlve. They wero
tho secret uervlec men, nnd not n
person reached the objective point of
tho line without their closo scrutiny
There were no hands wrapped In
handkerchiefs, no pucknges wero cur
ried lu tho line, und no ono ap
proached the President without keep
ing tho two bunds In plain sight,,
Tlio band quickened It tune, shitted
from tho lively two-steps to moro live
