ALL WASHINGTON] IN
GLAD EXPECTANCY ,
Many Visitors al£* Are in Capitol j :
for the Inauguration. 1
Washington, D. €., Feb. 26.7-Outward 1
and visible signs of the near approach of
Inauguration Day are already abundant 1
in Washington. The principal streets
arc 1 blossoming out with banners and '
.flags, great armies,ofworkmen are put- 1
Tmi>bk’flui«ibing toucE** to the mammoth 1
reviewing stands, the streets, hotels and 1
other public plaoes - are thronged with
the early visitors, and the souvenir ven- 1
ders are already reaping a harvest.
A decided increase in the number of '
incoming passengers was noted at the 1
Union station several days ago and the 1
tide of humanity flowing toward the enp- 1
ital is gradually swelling. The visit- 1
ors are flocking in from the cities and j
from the country, from all over the land 1
they are trailing in to- see the great <
quadrennial show. Some of them are
old stagers who have witnessed many in- <
augurations. Others are here for the
first time. Many of the arrivals are
bridal couples. 1
The most of those who are arriving
thus early are the 1 experienced ones,
who desire to get comfortably settled
before the rush begins. They know what •
it is to reach Washington in the midst 1
of the confusion the day before inaugu- '
ration, when brass bands are playing in J
the railroad station and in the hotel lob
bies, rendering conversation with clerks 1
and baggage men a task, when it is dis- 1
ficult to get a taxi and when all of the 1
street ears become “stand-as-you-ride” ■
Up to this time the employes at the 1
Union station have had no trouble in 1
handling the crowds and they are confi- 1
dent that with the ample facilities pro- I
vided they will be able to take care of
everybody comfortably when the rush is
at its height.
Like the railroad station, the hotel
lobbies are beginning to take on a holi
day look. The clerks in the various
hostelries ape busy all ,day answering
telephone inquiries concerning rates and ‘
possibilities to securing accommodations.
In. most of the hotels all the rooms for
next week were engaged long ago, but
at the 1 sable time nearly all of them
have, arranged to care for an overflow.
Many of the visitors already arrived
represent the advance guard of the va
ripqs organizations. which are coming toj
take part in the inaugural jjatade. They!
are here to make the necessary arrange-1
raents and tell their friends just what to]
do when they get here next week. Al- j
though the old-time Custom of political |
clubs throughout the country coming to 1
Washington in a body tot attend the in- 1
auguration has somewhat died out with
in the last decade or two, it still sur-1
vives to some extent and it is expected I
that the big event next Wednesday will
be graced by the presence of good-sized
delegations representing well-known po-l
litical of Philadelphia, |
Pittsburgh, New York, Boston and other
While the customs of inauguration day j
may change with the passing of time, the,
street fakirs go on forever. There are j
legions of these gentry already on the
ground and they add a sparkling shim-!
mer to the scene as they walk up and
down Pennsylvania offering their souve
nirs for sale.
All along the line of the inaugural pa
rade the work of preparation Is so far
advanced that fit can easily by completed'
before the first of the week. Monday]
; and Tuesday will be given qver to clean-1
' ing up. The electric display on Penn
sylvania Avenue and in the grand Court
of Honor will blaze forth Monday night
: and for three days the city will be given
over to the inaugural crowds.
