New Years Day Relig
iously Observed |in
Washington.
THE WHITE HOUSE
FULL OF VISITORS
First Public Reception of the
Twentieth Century Celebrated
the Usual Ceremonies.
Washington, Jan. i.—In no city of
the country are tlie social requirements
of New Year's day more religiously ob
served tliaD in Washington. Today proved
no exception to the tule. Though most
of the members of congress are hack in
the city after their holiday trips, politics
are laid aside and the day given over en
tirely to society. As usual the ceremo
nies of the day centered around the
White House, where, from ti a. m. to 2
p. m , the first public reception of the
20th century was in progress. The forms
of society were the same, the same offi
cials came, in the same order, and look
ing very much the same as in the last
century. The people of Washington,
however, were just as much interested as
though the function were a novelty of
the new century, and as in previous
years they formed in line and stood lor
horns in the White House grounds await
their turn to shake the hand of the presi
dent. Their turn did not come until
nearly i o'clock, after the more privi
leged ones had extended greetings and
taken their departure. The diplomats
took precedence of all others as they al
ways do. The ambassadors and minis
ters, with their wives and families, and
accompanied by the attaches of the
various legations, began to arrive at the
executive mansion at it o'clock. Sir
Julian I'auncefote, the British ambassa
bor, led the line, and was the first man
to shake hands with the president, en
joying this privilige by reason of his po
sition as dean of the diplomatic corps.
The German ambassador and his party
followed, and then came in the ordor of
their rank the attaches of the French
and Italian legations, the minister from
Mexico, and the ministers of the Nether
lands, Odom bia, Sweden and Norway,
Brazil and others with their secretaries
and families. The Chinese party fur
nislied two spectacular features of today's
reception. Minister, Wu, clad in the
richest and most gorgeous of oriental
gowns, came accompanied by his secre
taries who were likewise liberal in re
yard to the texture and color of their rai
ment The minister of Persia, unlike
his predecessors, was clad in clothes of
European cut..
Chief Justice Fuller and his associates
on the supreme bench followed the diplo
matic corps and then came the judges of
the United States court of claims, the
judges of the district court of appeals and
the judges of the district supreme court.
A small delegation of former ministers
and memliers of con dress was next in
line. The military section next pre
sented itself, comprising officers of the
aimy, navy and marine corps in full un
iform and wearing the iusignia of their
rank and station. Heads of various de
partments of government and members
of the various old soldiers' and other or
ganizations of vet( rans in the district
C( ; eluded the reception so far as privi
concerned and at
leged persons were
12:15 the doors were thrown open to the
vast throngs of people who were waiting
patiently outside It was estimated that
in the hour following fully 8000 passed in
line and received the greeting of the
president.

date line that the change of day comes

here, and breakfast time in New York,
while Sail Francisco was still asleep.

CHINA
ACCEPTS
Agrees to the Terms of
the Joint Note- -Wants
Peace.
IMPERIAL INSTRUCTION
CAME AS A SURPRISE
Chinese Ministers Themselves had
Expected More Delay Than was
Experienced.
London, Jan. 1.—Writing to the Time*
from Pekin yesterday, Dr. Morriaon aaya:
"The Chinese have accepted all the
condition* of the joint note. They are
sending formal acceptance by an envoy
and dak that negotiation* should com
mence forthwith and military operations
cease.
"Li Hung Chang it much better, al
though greatly shaken. Five expeditions
are now operating. Every report tells of
increasing unrest. The policy of de
priving the Chinese of all power to exer
cise authority is spreading disorder broad 1
cast and forcing peaceful Chinese into
opposition."
Washington, Jan. 1.—The report that
the Chiuese pleni potentiaries had decided
to sign the joint note is a source of aat
isfation to officials here, as indicating
disposition on the part of the Chinese
government to heed the desire of the
powers that negotiations shall be entered
upon at onçe and the present unsatisfac
tory condition of affairs terminated. The
emperor, it is expected, would instruct
his agents to obtain the best terms pos
sible. One of the principal objections
said to have been made by the Chinese to
the location of any great number of lega
tion guards in Pekin, is that these guards
would be a menace to the existing Chi
nese . government.
