PAGEANT AT DELHI.
COKOK ITTOX DCRR.-IK.
State Entry of the Viceroy Into the
Ancient Mogul Capitil.
r» c ih). India, Dec. 2f>.— Th*' Viceroy. I>ord Cur
jpjt of Kedleston. made his state entry this
morning into the capital of Hie Moguls. This
tfnstituted the official opening: of the durbar
held to celebrate the accession of Kins Edward
t.F Emperor of India.
It « is ■ splendid pageant, probably unparal-
KIM in Its magnificence. At the head of the
ripphant prooeassasi rode Lord and Lady Curzon
on tbc state "grand tusker." twelve feet high,
11,' largest elephant, in India. Their howdah
vis docked with gold and. silver, and the ele
phant himself was almost hidden beneath a
ysM worked saddlecloth. Surrounding them
n-ere footmen in scarlet and gold liveries, and
l-earinq massive silver staves. The Duke of
Connaught. who represented King Edward, and
th" Duchess of Connaught followed. Their ele
phant «•« equally gorgeously oaparlsoned.
Th<"r,. in order of precedence, came the' Nizam of
-:<="■ had. the Maharajah of Travancore and
other ruling chiefs, seventy in all. their huge
elephants forming a line a quarter of a mile in
length. This glittering procession started from
jhe railroad station, preceded by dragoon guards
and artillery, the Viceroy's escort, and by her
■Me and trumpeters. The route was entirely
liri"d by British and native troops. From the
Balu'ing battery, posted at the fort commanding
UK Lahore Gate, puns thundered out a royal
salute as the Viceroy passed, with the heralds
and trumpeters sounding at intervals spirited
fanfares. The cortege passed in front of a mag
nificent line of one hundred and fifty elephants
j carrying the brilliantly dressed retainers of the
• ruling chiefs. The colossal beasts all saluted
I by trumpeting and throwing their trunks in the
sir. presenting a truly Imposing sight, and af
terward fell in line, behind the official procession
ft* the cavalcade traversed the broad road lead-
Ire to the Jumma Musjid Mosque, with its
white dome and gilded minarets gleaming in the
sunlight. Huge crowds of onlookers witnessed
the spectacle, which, it is claimed, has never
been surpassed in magnificence even in this
country of Oriental splendor.
The heralds, pursuivants and trumpeters who
followed the escort and immediately preceded
the Viceregal procession were conspicuous by
th" splendor of their attire. They were followed
by the newly constituted Imperial Cadet Corps,
comprising thirty Maharajahs. headed by Sir
Tertab Singh, looking superb in their white
coats, blue turbans and decorations.
The excitement was at a fever heat as the
first elephants, with gold and silver howdahs, of
the staff officers came in view and began to
circle around the mosque. The finest elephants
in Asia passed in front of the great Juinma
)f«s£d. the steps of which were thronged with
distinguished personages. Including the Vice
roy's American and British guests and the dele
gates from the colonies and from other parts
of the empire. The enormous .animals shuf
fled slowly by. many of the massive howdahs. of
quail* and rich design, being surmounted by
magnificent canopies of gold embroidered and
bejewelled tapestry. The bodies of the animals
v.'. almost hidden by their trappings of 'Tim
son : in'- an.: gold. Bands of gold encircled
their tusks, golden bracelets were on their
ankles, tcoM and silver bells were hanging from
'heir neckchains. and their heads were painted
and deer-rated in every conceivable color, Th"
■mahouts (elephant drivers) were clad in tne.
righted attire, as were the attendant spear
men, who marched by th- elephants' sides.
In the rear of the procession rode general
Lord Kitchener, the commander in chief in
mdia surrounded by a brilliant staff, and fol

Surgeon Will Sail for Home on the
Celtic— His Xotabfe Tour.
T>r Adolf Lorens ends his visit to America to
day. After Httending- th.- theatre to-night he
goes aboard the «>ltic. which sails to-morrow
morning at l»?50.' His trip, which was taken In
ord*>r to operate on a private patient, ended in a
tour that brought relief to several scores of
little sufferers, and. aroused such an interest
in bloodless orthopedic surgery that, doubtless.
many children suffering from hip diseases will
be made strong men and women as re
sult of his demonstrations and his unselfish in
struction in his bloodless method of reducing
congenital hip dislocation.
It was on October »> that the famous surgeon
arrived on th- Trave to treat little Lolita
Armour. 'laughter of J. Ogden Armour, of Chi
cago, for congenital dislocation of the hi;>. It
was his intention to play only a month, just long
enough to attend his patient and watch the
progress of the cure. The operation was en
But American surgeons, interested in his
bloodless method, persuaded him to remain and
1" ur the country, in order to demonstrate his
method of operating. He consented, and then
began an almost triumphal march of mercy.
City after city was visited, and in each place he
performed many operations, and carefully ex
plained each detail of his method to the sur
geons gathered at the clinics. Many little chil
dren who would have grown up deformed and
helpless, will now. through Dr. Lorenz's gen
erosity, arrive at healthy maturity.
From Chicago Dr. Lorenz went to Denver,
where he demonstrated before th« Colorado
Medical Society, and from there lie journeyed
to San Francisco and Los Angeles^ operating In
both places. After this, he came to St. Louis",
where he held clinics, and then back to Chicago
to havo a final look at Lolita. Armour. It is re
lated that when the little Armour girl, who by
this time— for it was over a month since the
operation, on October 13. and she had begun to
walk a little— saw Dr. Lorenz and was told he
was going away, she cried and wanted to go
with him She will be taken abroad In April to
see him. | - '
"When he left St. Louis on November 2."> it Is
said that $160,000 was offered to Dr. Lorenz to
continue his operations for some time at that
place, but he had to hurry on.
n n November 29 Northwestern University
conferred a degree on Dr. Lorenz, and shortly
afterward, having finished in Chicago, he went
to Washington, where he was received by the
President. From there he went to Baltimore,
where he had a case that required so much-ex
ertion, on account of the shallowness of the hip
socket, that he sprained his wrist slightly.
From Baltimore Dr. Lorenz went to Phila
delphia, where he had a hard and extremely rare
case. He performed the operation successfully.
On December 13 Dr. Lorenz came to New-York
and from here went to Boston, where he oper
ated on a patient nineteen years old. He spent
two days at Boston, and then returned here.
While in New-York Dr. Lorenz hold public
clinics ;it the New- York Hospital for Ruptured
and Crippled, the Post Graduate Hospital. Belle
vue Hospital, the College of Physicians and Sur
geons, Cornell University Medical College, the
New-York Orthopedic Hospital, the hospital at
Tarrytown. and elsewhere. He also performed
a few private operations.
It is estimated that while in this country Dr.
Lor^nz has performed almost 150 operation*,
and his assistant. Dr. Mueller, more than
twenty-five. Dr. Mueller has been his faithful
companion and co-worker throughout the tour.
As a result of the work of Dr. Lorenz and his.
fame two thousand crippled children were
brought to the Cornell University Medical Col
lege, in this city, alone. It was not thought thai
so many cases of congenital hip disease existed
in one city.
Dr. Lorenz Is coming back In th- summer for
a social visit, and Dr. Mueller Intends to come
here permanently. The visit of these two ortho
pedic surgeons has brought that branch of sur
gery to public notice, and as a result it is
thought, that measures for making crippled chil
dren into sound adults, will receive public con
sideration. State aid for hospitals that will do
such work may be secured.
ALDERMEN TO HONOR LORENZ.

Testimony of the Train Dispatcher as to
Wyoming, ("int.. Dec. 2?.— The inquest into the
cause of the death of the victims of the recent ac
cident on the «Jrand Trunk Railway at Wanstead
was begun here to-day. Dispatcher James Kerr,
who sent the train from London, was called. Kerr's
evidence was to the effect that he sent orders to
the Watford and Wyoming operators simultaneous
ly to have the express meet the freight at Wan
stead. Shortly after Wyoming reported to the dis
patcher that the freight was slow in getting out.
Kerr's order was properly repeated back by both
operators, and Kerr marked It "O. K."
Kerr asked Wyoming why the. freight was slow-
In getting out. Wyoming replying that he. did not
know. Kerr then called Watford and asked if No. 5"
was coming. Watford's reply being "Yes," Kerr
said. "Mm may bust it." Wyoming then reported
the freight pulling out. Kerr said. "Let her go."
He then called the Watford operator, who reported
No. 5 had gone, and that he had "busted* the
older for No. 5. Kerr then called Wyoming, and
told him to stop the freight. Wyoming answered.
■I can't." Kerr said, "You must stop her."
Kerr then called King's Court for seven or eight,
minutes before raising that office. King's Court
reported No. .*. had passed. In a few minutes Wan
stead called the dispatcher, asking if the trains
w«re to cross at Wanstead. as he had heard a.
noise and had run from his house thinking there
was trouble. In a few minutes Assistant Superin
tendent «'ostello. who was on the express train,
called Kerr arid asked for the auxiliary to be sent,
as a collision had occurred.
W. J. Hanna. who appeared for Carson, the sta
tion agent at Watford, cross-examined Kerr.
At the afternoon session Kerr was recalled. Sol
icitor Pope of the Grand Trunk put him through
a cross-examination on the subject of th« company's
rules for operators and dispatchers. The. presence
of Superintendent CostelJo on the wrecked train
did not Influence the witness in his conduct. The
fact that the two trains were running under special
orders relieved the freight of its obligation to be
live" minutes clear of the express at Wanstead.
Th« witness would not say that the Kings Court
operator, James Troyer, was remiss In his duty.
Andrew ('arson, the Watford operator, at whose,
door is laid the responsibility for the accident by
the Grand Trunk officials, followed Kerr on the
stand. He was pale, but appeared to be cool and
collected He got the order for the two trains to
cross" at Wanstead, he said, and displayed bis
order board to stoi» the express. Soon after he
heard Wyoming tell of the delay to- the freight,
and then the London dispatcher called, the witness
and said. "Bust' It." He did not hear the word
■may" preceding the "bust it." The, express bad
stooped .find the conductor asked for his order, but
the witness told him it had been cancelled and
*ay« the conductor a clearance order. "Bust it
was a aommon form of cancellation of orders, he
said He did not get a. formal order annulling It.
There was no written record of the order bust It.
The inquest then adjourned till to-morrow. Kerr
and Carson will probably be recalled to-morrow.

ATTACKS CIVIL SERVICE REBATING
E. H. Goodwin Says Municipal Commission's
Method Is Demoralizing.
Elliott H. Goodwin, secretary of the Civil Ser
vice Reform Association^ yesterday made public a
letter addressed to Mayor Low under date of
December 2i. Th* letter follows up the Reform
Association's recent charge of Inefficiency against
the work being done by the Municipal Civil Service
Commission, which .-hargc was replied to In full by
the local organization. Mr. Goodwin says that th*
cost of conducting ruminations has Increased, and
in this connection, after reciting the facts from the
Reform Association's point of view. h» says:
We respectfully submit to your honor that if
the commission could publish as official figures
containing such a palpable blunder as that shown
above, and which, moreover, bring about a result
which is exactly opposite to th« real facts, th«
other statements in their letter should be subjected
to extremely careful scrutiny befor* they are ac
cepted as final. . .
The Reform Association objects to the local com
mission's methods of handling appeals from the
examiners' ratings. It Is asserted by Mr. Goodwin
that In 257 appeals made from ratings in a recent
examination for roundsmen ifi were granted, and
on reratings Mr. Goodwin's letter says:
The commission admits that there were 5T7 ap
peals from the ratings of the examiners, of which
307 were granted during the first eleven months of
IW2. In the Federal Service during the same pe
riod. 48.3fi2 sets of papers were rated. There were
343 cases of appeals from markings, In 43 of which
the ratings were raised and in 8 the ratings were
reduced Of the number raised IS were made eligi
ble by the change. In the State service during the
same" period there were 26 appeals. the ratings were
changed In 4 cases and the number placed on the
eligible list a* the result of reratlng was 3- TVe
submit that this whole business of reratlng In the
municipal service is not only demoralizing, but also
almost entirely unnecessary, and that the number
of appeals which .-how a real injustice done the
candidates is very small.
In summing up. Mr. Goodwin asks for a hearing
by the Mayor, and says:
The evidence convinces US that the cost has be»n
extravagant: that the departments have been ham
pered by the failure of the commission to produce
eligible lists from which appointments could be
made within a reasonable time, and we must re
reat our assertion, in the belief that it has been
proved, that the system of employing per session
examiners is bad. and must be held accountable
for many of the failures of the commission. Fur
thermore, we think that this has been practically
admitted by the commission, but. In the course of
a year they have done little to remedy It. So far
as" concerns the granting of appeals for reratlng.
the figures of the commission show that we have
understated the real facts, while as regards con
structive work we know that old abuses still ex
ist and must feel that the commission has neg
'ected a great opportunity.
A of Mr. Goodwin's letter was sent to
President WIIHs T.. Ogden. of the Municipal Civil
Service Commission. CatOJMi Ogden. In a note to
Mr. Goodwin, says that the local commission has
no desire to .-ontinue the discussion unless the
Reform Association desires to d<> •■<.
MURPHY WILL NAME CHAIRMEN.
Tammany Organization for 1903 — Van
Brunt for Mayor.
The Tammany Hall Bsecwttvc and General com
mjttees will meet to-nitrht for organization for 19* W.
It is fully expected that Charles F. Murphy will
name the sub-commjttees. a? this <s one of tlv
functions enjoyed b> the leader of Tammany Hall.
The programme is to re-Sleet Daniel F. McMahon
chairman of the Executive Commltte!? and ex-
Judge George M. Van Hoesep chairman of the
fjp n e> ra l < 'onimittee. Murphy is using th<» same
harmoriv talk that he started off wtth. and ther«
does not seem to be any disposition on the part of
"Big Tim" Sullivan to make a right against him

No agreement has as- yet been reached by Peter
J. Doollng. William Pulton and William S. Devery
with reference to a candidate to succeed the late
Senator Trainor. The naming of the candidate
belongs to Dooling's district, and at the meeting
of the Tammany Executive Committee to-night
the plan is for the three district leaden to get
together anO name the Democratic candidate.
There was tome talk yesterday about running
DooHag for the vacancy, but Mr. L>ooling'3 friends
said that, with the chances of Tammany return
ing to power, he would not take the nomination.
Justice Van Brunt's triends arc beginning to talk
about him at a candidate for Mayor next tall. The
fact that Justice Van Brunt has associated himself
with a trust corn-puny is proof to his friends that
be will leave the btnch as soon us practicable.
The anti-Murphy men in Tammany Hall are fa-»
to face with trio fact that Congressman George
B. MeClellan has l»en selected by Murphy as the
Tammany candidate for Mayor. On». ot Murphy's
most fervent wishes is that no one. will talk about
MrCletlan as a candidate for Mayor, as he is
afraid that premature discussion will hurt his
chances. _ ;^-;;f
