WASHINGTON CITY CROWDED WITH WITNESSES OF MC-
KINLEY'S SECOND INAUGURATION.
Washington, March 4—The
Second Inauguration of vVilliam
McKinley to be chief magistrate
of the United States, occurred
today amid unusually brilliant
surroundings. The committees
in charge of the various features
of the ceremony were determined
to make this, the first inaugural
of the century, eclipse all former
performances and they have suc-
ceeded . beyond their most
sanguine expectations. Tlio In-
auguration ceremony proper took
place from the cast portico of the
Capitol, where such ceremonies
have been held since the days of
Jefferson. vFour years owing
to a petty quarrel between the
Senate and House, the Senate
took entire charge of the inaugur
ation, even going to the extreme
of erecting the stand in front of
the Senate wing of the Capitol,
and not in front of the main en-
trance on the east side. This
rear the stand was erected in
front of the middle of the Capi-
tol, and the President entered
from the rotunda and not from
the Senate entrance as four years

ministered the oath by Chief

The Inaugural parade included
more regular troops than have
been seen in Washington since the
great parade that marked the
close of the civil war. The Wafe
department had ordered 4,00u
regulars to Washington, including
all branches of the service, caval
ry, artillery and infantry. The
naval arm of the service was also
well represented. In addition to
the regulars hundreds of military
and civic .organizaions from all
partj of the country were in line
making a parade the grandeur of
which has never been excelled in
the history of the Republic. The
President's personal escort to and
from the capitol was troop A of
the first regiment of cavalry, Ohio
national guard, an organization
similarly honored four years ago.
Tonight the inaugural ball in
the old Pension building, will be
one of the most brilliant affairs
ever witnessed in Washington.
More than $20,000 have been ex
pended in decorations. The Ma-
rine band stationed among the
palms and pillars and besides an
artificial hike, where a little
Monitor and Merrimac chase each
other round and round, will
furnish the music.
