Lomlon, June 21. The queen came to
London this morning ttom Wlnds-or.
The uenthei was fair arid warm.
An Immense crowd gathered near
Paddington station euily this morning
to receive hei The early hours were
enlivened by the pealing of bells and In
the morning bieeze everywhere lloated
the royal standard. The first point of
interest in the day's proceedings was
Windsor, wheie by 6 o'clock the short
route leading fiom the castle to the
Great Western railway station, was
lined by a mass of people gathered to
see the queen stait. Flags and flowers
were eveiy where and the order of the
day, "God Sava the Queen," nppeared
on houses and hanneis without end.
The statue of the queen near the castle
was decoiated and goigeously canopied
In the Renaissance style and tall Vene
tian masts with their lluttering pen
nons lined both sides of the route.
The queen left the castle at noon by
the sovereign's entrance, facing the
Long Walk, and traversed part of the
streets of Windsor on her way to the
railroad station. Her carriage was
drawn by a pair of grays, with pos
tilions and outriders. The queen was
accompanied by her eldest daughter,
ex-Empress Frederick, of Germany, and
by Prince Christian of Schleswlg-Hol-steln,
and Prince Henry of Batten
berg, who occupied another carriage,
preceding that of her majesty. The
queen, on arriving at the railway sta
tion, walked through the private wait
ing room, leaning on the arm of an In
dian attendant, and, by sloping gang
ways, entered her saloon carriage.
The station was beautifully decorated
In honor of the occasion in scarlet and
gold, flowers in bloom and tall plants.
The queen was received by the directors
of the railway station. "The Queen's
Train" used for the first time today
was drawn up close to the entrance
door. The magnificent engine, "Queen
Empress," beautifully painted and
picked out with gold leaf, carried the
royal aims emblazoned In gold and col
ors In front and royal heraldic devices
over the splashboards of the driving
wheels. The train wus composed of six
carriages built on the American corri
Throughout the route was lined by
an immense assemblage. Every win
dow had Its occupants, every roof Its
sightseers, every available space in the
street and squat e, sidewalk and gar
dens, the paths and chairs, and even
the trees.and railings of the parks were
black with loyal humanity. The queen
drove slowly to gratify her people. Her
face everywhere loosened the voice
of the multitude. In unrestrained
strength the tumultuous expression
of loyalty and affection broke forth.
Volleys of cheers rose clearly above
the constant roar of acclamation.
Nearing Piccadilly the queen saw for
the first time the conspicuous evidence
of what had been prepared for the
morrow. The grim, grey walls of Ape
ley House were gone in a profusion of
decoration, the grand stand at the
side and front of It, garlanded with
flowers, flags, and mottoes, stood
crowded with some' of the queen's
nobility, no less exuberant in their
welcome than that from the packed
";!,,Slndow8 and roof of St. George's hos
pital and the stands In front, full of
thfc queen's commoners.
ThVrough Burton's Gate the jueeit
passedL on to the garden entrance of
Buckimgham palace, always between
living lawes of her subjects, always tha
object of Wdless ho mage and salvoes
of cheers! which continued until the
gates hadlBhut the queen from view.
ARRIVAL AT BUCKINGHAM.
Next tfl Paddington the crowds se
lected Buckingham Talace as the most
Interesting point to view the proceed
ings, as the gathering of the envoys
and the Indian orncera invited to lun
cheon, to be afterward presented, had
already begun at noon. Many were the
speculations relative to the identity of
the bejeweled and decorated officers as
they drove up In royal carriages or In
hansoms, whose drivers Voro cockades
and hnadges on their left arms with
thp letter "V. R " embroidered In
. gold. A clumber of Americans, armed
with kodoics, had stationed themselves
opposite tne palnco gate, and some
body in the crowd shouted: "Now,
Yanks, three cheers for your mother!"
raising a rour of good humored laugh-
On the right of the palace gateway
the Duchess of Connaught and her
children- and some of the Batenbergs
awaited tha arrival of Her Majesty.
A few minutes before 1 o'clock a roar
of cheering In the distance announced
the approach of tho queen, and the
cheering; grew to a deafening storm of
applause as tho sovereign reached the
vicinity of the palace
All the special envoys presented their
letters with the lowest obeslance. The
queen took each latter and smilingly
addressed two or three sentences of
thanks nnd compliments to each en
voy. Mr. Held was received In tho
most cordial manner possible. Her
majesty expressed her sincere thanks
to President McKlnley and to "the
great nation of our kinsmen."
Queen Victoria looked very well In
deed, and seemed to be entirely pleased
and interested In everything. She Im
pressed all the envoys with the sin
cerity of her thanks for the national
compliments paid to her. The crowds
remained about the palace until a late
hour, watching the comings and goings
of the many notabilities. The Prince
nnd Princess of Wales and the Duke
and Duchess of York, on returning to
Marlborough house, were received with
roars of cheers.
The children of tho Duchess of York
occupied seats on the garden wall of
Clarence house. Their Identity was
soon discovered, and for hours the gar
den wall was the Mecca of crowds of
enthusiastic women and thousands of
nurses and children.
THE QUEEN WELL AND PLEASED
The queen was dressed In black and
bowed slowly, right and left, to the
loyal greetings of her subjects. She
looked pleased, did not wear spectacles
and was not more tired than any lady
of her age might be expected to be.
the Empress Frederick, who sat beside
her majesty, was also dressed In black.
Princess Christian and Princess Hen
ry of Batenberg sat opposite the queen
and the empress. Princess Chtlstlan
wore a lilac costume and Princess Hen
ry of Battenberg was dressed in black.
Two Scotch gillies rode behind tho
carriage. So soon as It entered the
palace yard, the carriage passed di
rect to the quadrangle, Princess Henry
of Battenberg waving her hand, ns she
passed, to her children who, with tho
Duchess of Connnugh saluted ner ma
jesty amid an enthusiastic renewal of
the cheering nnd the waving of hand
The guards then paraded In the pal
ace yard, and the Duke of Connaught,
who arrived soon afterward, was
warmly cheered. On entering the pal
ace yard the Duke saluted the Duchess
and the children was then saluted by
the Life guards as they rode off.
The queen, as soon as she entered the
palace, proceeded to her private apart
ments for luncheon and tho royal and
other guests had lunch In the state
supper room. Levee dress was worn,
and the suites, who were also In levee
dress, had luncheon in the garden and
The queen received the imperial and
royal envoys In the Bow drawing room
of Buckingham at 1 o'clock this after
noon. United States Special Envov
Whitelaw Reid, Gen. Nelson A. Miles,
U. S. A.; Rear Admiral J. N. Miller, U.
S. N., and the other members of the
United States Special Embassy reached
the palace a few minutes after two
o'clock. They all wore evening dress,
.with the exception of the American of
ficers, and the simplicity of their at
tire was in marked contrast with the
brilliancy of the uniforms around
them. The American party, except
Mr. Reed, was received by the Master
of ceremonies and was conducted by
the queen's equerries to a marquee In
the gardens, where lunch was served.
Mr. Reid was escorted to the state
supper room. He was received by the
Prince of Wales In the most cordial

THE IRISH PROTEST.
Addresses ol Congratulation to (lie
Queen Adopted by the Commons
and House of Lords.
London, June 21. .The house of com
mons was crowded today when the
first lord of the treasury and govern
ment leader, A. J. Balfour, moved, and
Sir William Vernon Harcourt, the
Liberal leader, seconded, an address of
congratulation to the queen upon the
sixtieth anniversary of her accession
to the throne. John Dillon, chairman
of the Irish parliamentary party,' pro
tested in vehement language. He ex
plained that the attitude of himself
and his party was that they would not
vote In favor of any amendment, but
would vote against the ndoptlon of the
address, In which the Irish could not
share. John Redmond, tho Parnelllte
leader, amid laughter from the Con
servatives and Unionists, moved an
amendment to the address and caused
an animated scene. Mr. Redmond pro
tested against Great Britain's rule In
Ireland, and asked the house to adopt
an amenament to the effect that It
deemed It to be Its duty to place on
record that during the sixty years of
her majesty's reign Ireland has suf
fered grievously from famine, depopu
latlon, poverty and the continued sus
pension of constitutional liberties, with
the result that tho Irish are discon
tented and disaffected and unable to
Join In tho celebration. James O'Kelly,
Parnelllte, member for North Roscom
mon, seconded the motion.
In the house of lords today the gov
ernment benches were crowded, though
there were fewer Peers present on th
opposition benohw. There were many
Peresscs present In tho gallery set
apart for them, andtho Archbishop of
Finland and a number of Indian
princes were In the other galleries.
Tho Marquis of Salisbury, amid cheers,
moved, and the Earl of KImberley,
the Liberal leader In the house of lords,
seconded, an address of congratula
tion to the queen upon the occasion of
her jubilee. The motion was carried

JOHN I. BLAIR ILL.
New Jersey's Multi-Millionaire Is Grow
ing Weaker Dally The End
Blalrstown, N. J., June 21. New Jer
sey's most celebrated millionaire, John
I. Blair, is dying. He has been In 111
health for many weeks, and It Is
thought that the end may come at
The romance of Mr. Blair's life began
In 1802 on a farm two miles below Bel
vldere, N. J., on tho banks of the
Delaware. One would not look to see
a man carve out a fortune of $60,000,000
in that sylvan neighborhood. But the
opportunity was there. All that It
needed was the man.
He came of Scotch stock. He loved
to talk about the ancestors who
"fought for the Covenant." He was
proud of the fact that they were forced
to leave Scotland on account of their
religion and to sail for New Jersey In
1740 In search of that religious lib
erty for which so many other banished
ones crossed the seas.
The family were living In Beaver
Creek when an event of great Import
ance happened to the future railroad
king: He earned his first dollar.
When he was yet so young that he
did not like to tell his age Blair be
came a commanding personality in the
district. He got the office of postmas
ter. He established branch stores in
the country round about and brought
his numerous brothers from the farm
to take charge of them. Some of his
brothers were also shrewd fellows and
became highly successful, but none had
the genius of John I.
He saw money In banking and estab
lished the Belvldere bank, of which he
has been president or vice president for
sixty years. He bought a cotton mill
at a low figure and turned a financial
failure Into a success. He went to
work to secure a charter for a rail
road from Scranton to Great Bend.
He got it and the road was built. It
was called Leggett's railroad.
From that Infant sprang the giant of
today, the great Delaware, Lackawan
na and Western, with Its wealth of
coal and its fine passenger business.
ANTI-LYNCHING LEAGUE FORMING.
Negroes of Kansas Inaugurate an Im
Kansas City. Mo., June 21. The col
oted people of Kansas are gteatly
wrought up over the numerous lynch
lngs of coloied men in various states,
and a call will at once be isbued, sign
ed by many prominent colored men of
this state, for a convention to be held
at Topeka July 20 for the organization
of a Kansas antl-lynchlng league.
W. A. Bcttls, of Wichita, editor of the
National Reflector, the organ of the
colored Americans of the southwest, Is
the prime mover in the proposed or
ganization. The plan as outlined by
him Is to organize antl-lynching
leagues among the colored men in
every county in Kansas, which will
throw their Influence to that party and
those candidates who pledge themselves
to oppose the lynching of negroes.
In some counties in Kansas the col
ored vote Is small, but In the "black
belt" In the eastern part the negro Is a
very Important political factor. Mr.
Bettls has been In correspondence with
all the coloied leaders in Kansas, and
they are a unit in favor of the estab
lishment of antl-lynchlnsr leagues.

on Tuesday next for sentence under
his recent conviction for maintaining
a disorderly house.
"I am preparing to go to prison If
necessary," said Commander Booth

tumbled In on the congregation, and a
panic almost resulted. Congregations
were at worship in various towns when
the shock occurred, and In some

San Francisco, June 21. Miss Emma
Ellen Howse, a graduate of Stanford
university, who wedded Walter Ngong
Fong, a young Chinese, at Denver yes

She was a special student In history,
and he was In the same Class. She Is

the University of the Pacific at San
Jose, and then took a post-graduate
course at Stanford. He paid his way
at San Jose by Interpreting In the
courts. He Is a Christian, and was
active In mission work when here.
A few months ago he was credited
with being at the head of a powerful
organization of educated Chinese In
this country, whose object was to
overthrow the present dynasty, and
transform the Chinese empire into a
great Oriental republic. This was a
canard, but Fong believes In Marquis
Tseng's prediction of a great awaken

has discarded his queue, dresses In
American style, and only his features
show that he is a Chinese. He speaks

His Record, Mnuy Years Ago, Shows
He Favored Fee Culm.
New York, June 21. It Is reported
here that Spain will resent tho ap
pointment of General Stewart L.
Woodford as minister. The reason for
these beliefs is based on the fact that
General AVoodford raised his voice 27
years ago at a meeting held In Cooper
Union under the auspices of the Cu
ban league. The subject of tho meeting
was to help Cuba In the war she was
then waging against tho mother coun
try. Spain was denounced in unmeasured
terms at that mpetlng, and General
Woodford said some things that he
might have left unsaid had he been
able to look Into the future and see
.himself in the position he now expects
He then practically predicted that
If tho war 'then In progress the war
that came to be known In history later
as "tho ten years' war" should fall

Directors of Social Democracy Meet.
Mr. Debs Explains the Alms and
Purposes of the Organization.
Chicago, June 21. At a meeting to
night of the directors of the Social
Democracy of America the following
officers were elected: E. V. Debs, chair
man; Sylvester Kellher, secretary;
James Hogan, vice president; William
E. Burns, general organizer.
The directors who chose these officers
and were themselves elected nt tho
meeting In the afternoon are: E. V.
Debs, Sylvester Kellher, James Hogan,
William E. Burns and Leroy Goodwin.
Tho salary of the officers was placed
at $100 a month.
At the afternoon meeting the consti
tution of the Social Democracy, which
has been published, was formally rati
fied and adopted.
Mr. Debs explained at length the
alms and purposes of the co-operative
commonwealth. A colony should be
sent to Washington, from which place
he said an official Invitation had been
received. After establishing the colony
he would secure control of he politics
of the state and start the co-operative
commonwealth. "The flist thing we
would do after getting control," he said,
"would be to call a special session of
the legislature. Then we would call a
convention to revise the constitution
and get all the rot out of it. We will
have control of the taxing power nnd
can tax syndicates and landmarks out
of the state.
TAXED ACCORDING TO MEANS.
Persona shall be taxed accordlnr to
their means and shall have according
to their needs. We will have trusts,
nothing but trusts in our state, but we
will nil be In the trust. The operatives
will not work twelve or fourteen hours
a day, but four or five. Wo will be In
the field in 1900 with a new party.
These men who represent the new life
are going to unite as if by magic for
the overthrow of commercialism and
the establishment of the co-operative
commonwealth by which the brother
hood of man will become a fact. I do
not know whether this question will
be .solved peaceably or otherwise. I
hope peaceably. But I am one of those
who believe In getting ready for any
solution that may be necessary."
Mr. Debs said that in setting up
the co-operative commonwealth in
Washington, the colonists might be
running against the supreme court. He
would consult good lawyers and learn
just what the rights of the colonists
were. "We want to know our rights,"
he said, "and make them the rebels.
If they send the military to Invade our
rights then there will be an army of
300,000 patriots on the state line to
meet them on that Issue."
