INAUGURAL PARAGE AT WASH
INGTON A RECORD-BREAKER.
Chlaf Executive Speaks of Problems
Facing the People and Says That
Men Cannot Afford to Shirk Their
Duties as Citizens.
WnahliiBtoii, .Mnrrli 4. The ir.oRt
biilllunt ami linpoHliiB inauKtirntlon
x Meli tho citizens of Washington linvu
i'vv prcpiirvil tins passed Into tho hits
tmy of tho republic Theodore Moose
cll did not ride to the cnpltol, hitch
hirf horau to a kIkhIc tree, enter the
building nnd titho tho oath of olllco
Looted nnd spurred. Tho trnJitlontil
Ji ffersonlan hlmpllclty was replaced
by a pageant which has not been -r.ir
passed In the annals of the nation.
Tho Grand Army of the Republic. a
is itu habit, acted with the president's
riiEsiitu.vr itoo.si:vi:ir takinis tiik
escort, and his rnte of progress to tbe
capltol was reduced to the pathetic
pace of men who are fast approaching
the scripture limit of lite. Hut the de
lay had Its compensations. Many
thousands had opportunity to see and
greet the president as his cortege
slowly passed along the two miles
from the white house to Capitol hill.
For three hours this national temple
was the vortex of nctivity. The five
minutes remaining at the close of the
Fennte's session were given to inau
gurating the new vice president. He
appeared at the entrance escorted by
the joint coniniitteo of arrangements
and as tho senate and Its guests rose
lie was ebcorted to a seat at the right
of the presiding ullltvr, where he de
livered brief inaugural remarks and
repeated the oatli of olllco alter the
presiding officer, Senator M-'rye.
When the stroke of noon put an end
to the session little wns known be
yond the fact that no important ap
propriation bill had failed.
Then Immediately began the open
ing and formal organl'ar.on of tho
new session in the senate chamber.
President Takes the Oath.
At length all was ready for the
crowning ceremony. The sea of human
ity was stilled. The president ad
vanced to take tho oath of office.
"With his hands upon the bible, held
by the chief justice, he reverently re
peated the oath, kissed the book at
the end, and Theodore Roosevelt, a
soldier of the republic, became presi
dent by tho votes of the people, fol
lowing the unbroken lino of soldier
presidents which his party has In
htalled since the close of the civil
war. He thou delivered his inaugural

address, which surprised his hearers
by Its brevity. As the ceremony
rlosed he was again greeted by tho
Toarlng cheers of the immense throng.
Accompanied by his escort and fol
lowed by troops and civilinn paraders,
he started for tho white house. It
was the most perfect column that
ever inarched in an inaugural parado,
though its numbers were less.
Turning from tho pageant of tho
day, tho doublod population of tho
city disposed itself for tho three im

posing spectacles of tho night, tho
promenade at tho pension office, mis
named a bnll; the fireworks on tho
tvhlfjo house lot nnd tho dazzling street
decorations. The attendnnco at tho
ball was limited to tho 12,000 of 15,
O0Q which tho building would hold.
Tho street decorations were viewed
by a solid marching column filling the
wide pavements of tho avenue.
Roosevelt's Inaugural Address.
My Fellow Citizens No people on
earth liave more cause to bo thank
ful than outs, and this is said rever
ently, In no spirit of boasU'ulucss in
our own strength, but with gratitude
to the giver of good, who has blessed
us with tho conditions which have
enabled us to achieve so largo a
measure of well being and of happi
ness. To us as a people It has been
granted lo lay the foundations of our
national IITo In a new continent. We
aro the heirs or the ages!, aim yet we
have had to pay few of the penalties
which in old countries are exacted
by the dead hand of a bygone civiliza
tion. Wo hi've not boon obliged to
fight for our existence against any
alien race; and yet our life has called
for the vigor and effort without which
the mnnller and hardier virtues with'er
away. Under such conditions It
would be our own ratilt if we failed;
nnd the success which we have had
in tho past, the success which wo con
fidently believe, the future will bring,
should cause In ua no feeling of vain
glory, buL rather a deep and abiding
realization of all which life has of
fered us; a full acknowledgment or
responslbllty which is ours; and a
fixed determination to show that un
der a free government a mighty poo
plo can thrive best, alike as regards
the things of tho body and the things
ot the soul.
Wants the Peace of Justice.
Much has been given to us, and
much will rightfully be expected from
us. We have duties to others, and
duties to ourselves, and we can shirk
neither. Wo liavo become a great na
tion, forced by the fact of Its great
ness into relations with the other na
tions of the earth; and we must bo
havo as beseems a people with such
responsibilities. Toward all other na
tions, largo and small, our attltudo
must bo one of cordial and sincere
friendship. Wo must show not only In
our words, but in our deeds, that wo
are earnestly desirous of securing
their good will by acting toward them
in a spirit or just and generous recog
nition of all their rights. But justice
and generosity In a nation, as In an
individual, count most when shown
not by the weak, but by tho strong.
While ever careful to refrain from
wionglng others, we must be no
less Insistent that we aro not wronged
ourselves. We wish peace; but wo
wish the peaco of justice, the peace
of righteousness. Wo wish it because
wo think it is right nnd not because
we aro afraid. No weak nation that
acts manfully nnd justly should ever
have causo to fear us, and no strong
power should ever bo able to single
us out as a subject for insolent ag
Our relations witli tho other powers
ol tho world are important; but still
more important are our relations
among ourselves. Such growth in
wealth, in population, and In power
as this nation hns scon during the
century and a quarter or its national
life is inevitably accompanied by a
like growth In tho problems which arc
ever before- every nation that rises
to greatness. Power invariably means
both responsibility and danger. Our
forefathers faced certain perils which
wo have outgiown. We now face oth
er pel lis, the very existence of which
it was linposslblo that they should
foresee. Modern life is both complex
and Intense, nnd the tremendous
changes wrought by the extraordinary
industrial development of the last
half century are lert In every fiber of
our social and political being. Never
before havo men tried so vast and
formidable an experiment ns that of
administering tho affairs of a conti
nent under the forms of a democratic
republic. The conditions which have
told for our marvelous material well
being, which have developed to a very
high degree our energy, self-reliance
and individual Initiative, have also
brought tho care, and anxiety insep
arable from the accumulation of great
wealth In Industrial centers. Upon
tho success of our experiment much
depends; not only as regards our own
welfare, but as regards the welfare
of mankind. If wo fall, the cause of
free self-government throughout tho
world will rock to its foundations,
nent under the forms of a Democratic
heavy, to ourselves, to the world as it
is today and to the generations yet un
born. There is no good reason why
we should fear the future, but there
is every reason why wo Hhould face
It seriously, neither hiding from our-
, Belves the gravity of tho problems
, beforo us nor fearing to approach
, tnese problems with tho unbendlng.un
nincnmg purpose to solvo them aright.
Has Faith In the People.
Yet, after all, though the problems
aro new, though tho tasks set before
, us differ from tho tasks set beforo
our fathers, who founded and pro
served this republic, tho spirit In
which these tasks must bo undertaken
and theso problems faced, if our duty
Is to bo well done, remains essentially
unchanged. We know that self-government
Is difficult. Wo know that no
peoplo needs Btich high traits of char
acter as that peoplo which seeks to
govern Us affairs aright through the
freely expressed will of the freemen
who compose it. But wo have faith
that we shall not provo false to the
memories of the men of the mighty
past. They did their wofk, they left
us the splendid heritage wo now en
joy. We. In our turn, have nn nssured
confidence that wo shall be able to
leave this heritage unwnsted and en
larged to our children and our chil
dren's children. To do so wo must
ehow, not merely In great crises, but
in the everyday affairs or lire, the
qualities or practical intelligence, cf
courage, of hardihood nnd endurance,
and, above nil, the power of devotion
to a lofty Ideal, which made great tho
men who founded this republic in the
days of Washington, which made
great the men who preserved this re
public in the days of Abraham Lincoln.

that Mukden has been completely
evacuated and that its great maga

tillery. London, March 8. For ten days thu
Japanese and Russian armies in Man
churia havobeen engaged in a mighty
conflict, the Issue of which has not
been reached. Although most of the
news from the scenes of battle comes
through Russian sources, and conse
quently may be supposed to present
the facts in as favorable a light as
possible for the Russian arms, it is
evident that the Japanese made some
gains yesterday. St. Petersburg has
an unofficial report that General
Kouropatkln's center hns been broken
and that thirteen siege guns have
fallen into the hands of the Japanese.
These guns, which are of six and eight
inch caliber, were given permanent
emplacements on the line of the rail
road north or Shakhe station, tho fact

sians that the Japanese could not pen
In St. Petersburg It Is generally be
lieved that General Kouropatkin is
fighting a rear guard action to cover
his retreat and that tho night will
havo witnessed a largo withdrawal of
troops towards Tie pass. All of the
commander-in-chief's ability, it Is
considered, will lie required to extri
cate his army from its present predic
ament. This Issue, It Is expected,
will bo decided today, and a great
deal unquestionably depends on tho
comparative ability of tho two armies
to resist tho effect of hunger and fa
tigue, tho limit of human endurance
evidently having been nearly reached
on both sides. Beyond the statement
that the casualties exceeded those of
tho battle of Uao Yang, there is lit
tle known as to tho number of killed
CZAR ISSUES A RESCRIPT.
Promises Assembly of Elected Dole
gates to Consider Legislation.
St. Petersburg, March 4. In the
Alexandra palace at Tsarskoo Solo,
surrounded by tho ministers and a
few members of the court, and with
the empress at his side, Emperor
Nicholas affixed his signature to a re
script containing his majesty's de
cree to glvo elected representatives
of the peoplo an opportunity to ex
press their views In the preparation
of the laws of the empire. This la
the autocracy's final response to tho
agitation in favor of participation by
the peoplo in government which ha8
brought Russia in the last few months
almost to the brink of revolution. No
change in the regime of autocracy Is
Involved for tho present, and it means
neither a constitution nor a national
assembly. At tho same time it recog
nized the principle of the people's
right to bo heard regarding laws un
der which they must live. Whatever
the result may bo, the document is
sure to mark an epoch In Russian his
tory as Important as tho signing of
the emancipation manifesto, the
twenty-fourth anniversary of which
it was intended to signalize.
