New Executive of Nation Takes Oath
on East Portico of Capitol After
Marshall Escomes Vice
Washington, March 4.-Woodrow
Wilson of New Jersey is president of
the United States and Thomas Riley
Marshall of Indiana is vice-president.
The instant that the oath-taking cere
monies at noon today in front of the
capitol weie completed, the Democrat
ic party of this country "came into its
own" again after an absence of six
teen years from the precincts of ex
ecutive power.
A throng of many thousands of
people witnessed the newly elected
president's induction into c ice. Nine

were enthusiastically joyful, the other

the United States, held the Book for
Mr. Wilson to rest his hands upon
while he made solemn covenant to
support the Constitution and the lawz

diuties of his office as well and as
faithfully as it lay within his power

Ceremonieks Simple and Impressive.
Both of the ceremonies proper were
conducted in a severely simple but
most impressive manner. The sur
roundings of the scene of the presi
dent's induction into office, however,
were not so simple, for it was an out
of-door event and the great gathering
of military, naval and uniformed civil
organizations gave much more than a
touch of splendor to the scene.
' In the senate chamber, where the
the oath was taken by the man now
vice-president of the United States.
there were gathered about 2,000
people, all that the upper house will
contain without the risk of danger
because of the rush and press of the
multitudes. It is probable that no
where else in the United States at
any time are there gathered an equal
number of men and women whose
names are so widely known. The
gathering in the senate chamber andi
later 'on the east portico of the capi
tel was composed largely of those
prominent for their services in Amer
lea, and in part of foreigners who
have secured places for their names
in the current history of the world's
Arrangedi by Congrees.
The arrangements of the ceremonies
for the inauguration of TWoodrow Wil
son and Thomas Riley Marshall were
made by the jiit committee on ar-:
rangements oLf ogrss. The senate
* section of this committee was ruled
by a majority of Republicans, but
there is Democratic tintimony to the
fact that the Republican senators
were willing to outdo tjeir Democratie
brethren in the wor-k of making or-I
derly and impressive the inaugural
ceremonies in honor of two chieftains
of the opposition.I
~residen~t Tart and President-elect
& Wilson~ rode together from the WVhite
House' to the capitol, accompan-ied by,
*two members of the coagressional
committee of arrae';~monts. The vice
president-elect :iice rodc from the
White Hos to the e:Witol and In the
carria;r wilth him were the senate's
president pro tempore. Senator Bacon
of G~eorgia, and three members or the
congressional committee of arrange
bar to witness the oath-taking of the
vic_-presidelt was by ticket, and it
is needless to say every~ seat was
occupied. On the floor of the cham
ber were many former mem'-crs of
the senate who, because of the fact
that they once held membe'ship in
that body, were given the privileges
of the floor. After the hall was filled
and all the minor officials of govern
ment and those privileged to witness
the ceremonies were seated, William
H. Taft and Woodrow Wilson, preced
ed by the sergeant-at-arms and the
committee of arrangements, entered
the senate chamber. They were fol
lowed immediately by Vice-President
elect Thomas R. Marshall, leaning
npon the arm of the president pro
tempore of the senate.
The president and the president
elect sat in the first row of seats di
rectly in front and almost under the
desk of the presiding officer. In the
same row, but to their left, were tho
vice-president-elect and two former
vice-presidents of the United States,
Levi P. Morton of New York and Ad
lai.A. Stevenson of Illinois.
When the distinguished company en
tcred the chamber the senate was
still under its old organization. The
oath of ollee was immediately admin
istered to. Vice-President-elect Mar
shall, who thereupon became Vice
Pres'dent Marshall. The prayer of the
day was given by the chaplain of the
senate, Rev. Ulysses G. B. Pierce, pas
tor of All Souls' Unitarian church, of
which President Taft has been a mem
ber. After-the prayer the vice-presi
dent administered the oath of office
to all the newly chosen senators, and
therewith the senate of the United
States passed for the first time in
years into the control of the Demo
cratic party.
Procession to East Portico.
Immediately after the senate cere
monies a procession was formed to
march to the platform of the east por
tico of the capitol, where Woodrow
Wilson was to take the oath. The pro
cession included the president and the
president-elect, members of the Su
preme court, both houses of congress,
all -of the foreign ambassadors, all of
the heads of the executive depart
ments, many -governors of states and
territories, Admiral Dewey of the navy
and several high officers of the sea
service, the chief of staff of the army
and many distinguished persons from
civil life. They were followed by the
members of the press and by those
persons who had succeeded In secur
ing seats in the senate galleries to
yitness the day's proceedings.
When President Taft and the presi
dent-elect emerged from the capitol
on to the portico they saw in front
of them, reaching far back into the
park to the east, an immense con
course of citizens. In the narrow line
between the onlookers and the plat
form on which Mr. Wilson was to take
the oath, were drawn up the cadets
of the two greatest government
schools, West Point and Annapolis,
and flanking them were bodies of reg
ulars and of national guardsmen. The
hole scene was charged with color
and with life.
On reaching the platform the presi
ent and president-elect took the
seats reserved for them, seats which
vere flanked by many rows of benches
ising tier on- tier for the accommoda
ion of the friends and families of the
ficers of the govetment and of the
ress. -
Mr. Wilson Takes the Oath.
The instant that Mr-. Taft and Mr.
Wilson came within sight of the crowd
here was a great. outburst of ap
plause, and the military bands struck
uickly, into "The Star Spangled Ban
er." Only a few bars of the music
were played and then soldiers and ci
ilans became silent to witness re
spectfully the oath. taking and to
listen to the address which followed.
The chief justice of the Supr-eme
:ourt delivered the oath to the presi
:ent-elect, who, uttering the words,

day, and later rode up the same ave

and as the highest officer of govern

viewed the multitudes of soldiers and
civilians which, with playing bands
and flying flags, marched by to give
him proper official and personal honor.
For several nights Pennsylvania ave
nue has been a glory of light. Today
It was a glory of color, movement and
music. here are 300,000 inhabitants
of the city of Washington. Its tem
porary population is nearer the half
million mark. The absentees from the
flanking lines of the parade were most
ly the policemen, who were given or
ders to protect the temporarily vacat
ed residences of the capital,
Woodrow Wilson asked that "Jeffer-.
sonian simplicity" be observed in all:
things which had to do with his in
auguration. The command for Jefer
sonian simplicity seems to be suscep
tible to elastic construction. There
was nothing savoring of courts or roy
alty, but there was evidence in plenty
that the American people love uni-.
forms and all kinds of display which
can find a place within the limits of
democratic definition. It was a .good
parade and a great occasion generally.
Throngs Vociferous With Joy.
The inhibition of the inaugural ball
and of the planned public reception at
the capitol had no effect as a bar to
the attendance at this ceremony of
changing presidents. Masses were here
to see, and other masses were-here to
march. There was a greater demon
stration while the procession was pass
ing than there was four years ago.
Victory had come to a party which
had known nothing like victory for a
good many years. The joy of posses
Escorting the President-Elect to WI
sion found expression in steady and
abundantly noisy acclaim.
President Taft and President-elect
Wilson were escorted down the ave
nue by the National Guard, troop of
cavalry of Esser county, New Jersey.
The carriage in which rode Vice
President-elect Marshall and Presi
dent pro tempore Bacon of the United
States senate was surrounded by the
members of the Black Horse troop of
the Culver Military academy of Indi
ana. This is the first time in the his
tory of inaugural ceremonies that a

Parade a Monster Affair.
The military and the civil parade, a
huge affair which stretched its
length for miles along the Washington
streets, formed on the avenues radiat
ing from the capitol. After President
elect Wilson had become President
Wilson and Vice-President-elect Mar
shall had become Vice-President
Marshall, they went straightway from
the capitol to. the White House and
thence shortly to the reviewing stand

The parade, with Maj. Gen. Leonard
Wood. United States army, as its
grand marshal, started from the capi
tol grounds to move along the avenue
to the White House, where It was to
pass in review. The trumpeter sound
ed ''forward march" at the instant the
signal was fiashed from the White
house that in fifteen minutes the new
ly elected president and commander
in-chief of the armies and navies of
the United States would be ready to
review "his troops."
It was thought that the parade might
lack some of the picturesque features
whcp patclryappealed to the
people en former occasions. There
were Indians and rough riders here
not only when Roosevelt was inaugu
rated, but when he went out of office
and was succeeded by William H.
Taft. The parade, however, in honor
of Mr. Wilson seemed to be pictur
esque enough in its features to appeal
to the multitudes. They certainly
made uoise enough over it.

The regulars of the country's two
armed service naturally had the-right'
of way. Maj. Gen. W. W. Wother
spoon, United States army, was in.
command of the first division, in
which marched the soldiers and sailors
and marines from the posts and the
navy yards within a day's ride of
Washington. The West Point cadets
and the midshipmen from the naval
academy at Annapolis, competent be
yond other corps in manual and in
evolution, the future generals and ad
mirals of the army, had place in the
first division.
All branches of the army service
were represented in the body of regu
lars-engineers, artillery, cavalry, in
fantry and signal corps. The sailors
and marines from half a dozen battle
ships rolled along smartly in the wake
.of their landsmen brethren.
The National Guard division follow
ed the division of regulars. It was
commanded by Brig. Gen. Albert L.
Mills, United States army, who wore
the medal of honor giyen him for con
spicuous personal gallantry at the bat
tle of San Juan hill. General Mills is
the chief of the militia division of the
United States war department.
The entire National Guard of New
Jersey was in line, and Pennsylvania,
Massachusetts, Maryland' Virginia,
Georgia, Maine and North Carolina
were represented by bQdies of civilian
soldiers. Cadets from many of the
private and state military schools of
the country had a place In the militia

Veterans and Civilians.
The third division of the parade was
composed of Grand Army of the Re
public veterans, members of the Union
Veteran league and of the Spanish
war organizations. Gen. James E.
Stuart of Chicago, a veteran of both
the Civil and the Spanish wars, was
In command.
Robert N. Harper, chief marshal of
the civic forces, commanded the fourth
division. Under his charge were po
litical organizations from all parts of
the country, among them being Tam
many, represented by 2,000 of its
braves, and Democratic clubs from
Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, Balti
more and other cities.

pink coats and their high hats ap
parently were not thought to far
"Jeffersonian simplicity" from its
seat. Pink coats were worn on the
hunting field in Jefferson's day and in
Jefi'erson's state.
There were 1,000 Princeton students
in the civic section of the porade.
Many of them wore orange and Mlack
sweaters and they were som.::dhat
noisy though perfectly proper. Stu
dents from seventeen other colleges
and universities were among the
Spectators Cheer Constantly.
All along Pennsylvania avenue, from
the capitol to a point four block be
yond the White House, the spectators
were massed in lines ten deep. The
cheering was coastant and Woodrow
Wilson cannot complain that the cere
monies attending his induction into
office were not accompanied by ap
parently heartfelt acclaim of the peo
pie over whom he Is to rule for at
least four years.
Every window in every building on
Pennsylvania avenue which is not oc
cupied for office- purposes was rented
weeks ago for a good round sum of
money. Every room overlooking the
marching parade was taken by as
many spectators as cound find a vant
age point from which to peer through
the window panes. The roofs of the
buildings were covered with persons
willing to stand for hours in a M.arch
day to see the wonders of the inaugu
ral parade, and many of themn partic
ularly glad of an opportun~ity to go
home and to say that after many years
waiting they had seen a Democratic
president inaugurated.
The parade passed the reviewing
stand of President Wilson, who stcod
uncovered while th.e marchers saludted.
