MOSCOW, May 21.—The czar and' czarina
made their triumphal entry into this city this
afternoon, amid the thunder of batteries of
artillery, the clanging of countless bells and
the cheers of a vast multitude of loyal Rub
nians and equally enthusiastic visitors from
all parts of the world. Probably never in the
history of nations has there been such an as
semblage of peoples. Possibly the gorgeous
scene may never be repeated in its grand en
At 1 o'clock, in anticipation of the coming
of the czar, the entire route from Petrovski
palace to the Kremlin was so densely packed
with people that movement, except on the out
skirts of the immense crowds, was out of the
question. Prom 7 o'clock in the morning
the route to be followed by the procession
had been guarded by troops, infantry and
cavalry, police on foot and on horseback, in
uniform and in plain clothes, until the road
may be said to have been lined by row after
row, thickness after thickness of blood
and iron. The weather was delight
fully fine, a great relief after the bitterly
cold and damp experiences of the past few
days. The sunshine, however, had not had
time to dry the muddy roads and streets, but
the warmth was a great improvement and put
everybody in a good humor.
The signal for the commencement of the
day's movement was a salute of nine guns
from a battery outside the city. This was i
followed by the dull booming of the big bell j
of the Cathedral of the Assumption, and the ■
assembling of the troops at their various j
mustering points. Then the countless high \
dignitaries of the empire and of the foreign j
countries began to gather at the Petrovski j
palace, to take their places in gala equipages, j
or to escort on horseback the carriages of j
their Imperial majesties. There were grand
dukes and grand duchesses, princes and prin
cesses, Asiatic potentates, innumerable repre
sentatives of every country under the sun, as
sembled to do honor to the czar of all the Rus
slas, the ruler of the mighty empire which
half circles the globe. Generals with their
staffs, aides-de-camp riding at a break-neck
speed, orderlies galloping furiously, were to
be seen everywhere. The clash of arms re
sounded on all sides, and most impressive was
the gathering of the hosts of the mighty em
At 2:30 there was a thundering of cannon,
this time from the direction of the Petrovski
palace, and the living mass of men and wom
en gave a great sigh of relief, for it was the
signal that the czar had started on his jour
ney to the Kremlin. Then there was a joy
ous pealing of bells, the dull boom of the
monster bell pleasingly muffling the clear,
silver-like ring of the smaller bells, and giv
ing forth welcome to the czar and czarina,
to their guests, to Russia and to the world in
general, as represented in and about this old
The imperial procession was headed by
a squad of mounted gendarmes, led by a mas
ter of police. After the police came a
portion of the czar's bodyguard of Cossacks.
Then came the grand marshal of the court in
a state phaeton, drawn by six horses, bearing
the Insignia of his charge, and a squadron of
the regiment of chevaliers of the guard of the
Empress Marie Feodorovna.
His majesty, the czar of Russia, on horse
back, followed, and after him came the min
ister of his household, the minister of war,
the aide de camp general commanding the
military household of his majesty, an aide de
camp general, one of his majesty's aides de
camp and other generals. Next in order came
the Grand Dukes Michael, Alexandrovitch,
Cyrill, Vandlmirovitch, Boris, Alexis, Demetir,
Nicholas, Peter Nicholalevitch, Michael Nich
olalevitch, Nicholas Michaelovltch, Alexan
der Michaelovitch, Serglus Michaelovitch, the

the aides de camp of the czar, the generals
attached to their imperial majesties, as well
as their aides de camp and the military
suites of the foreign princes, all on horse
Her Imperial majesty, the Czarina Marie
Foedorovna, and her daughter, the Grand
Duchess Olga Alexandrovna, came next in the
imperial carriages, surmounted by the im
perial crown, the vehicle drawn by eight
horses and each horse led by an equerry of
the Imperial stables and having at each door
of the carrige a grand equerry on horse
back. The imperial carriage was preceded
by an officer of the imperial stables on horse
back. Two pages walked on each side of the
box, and four Cossacks of the chamber in
state uniform marched on the side of the
vehicle. It was followed by six pages of the
chamber and two equerries of the court sta
bles, all on horseback.
Her majesty, the ex-Empress Alexandra
Feodorovna, was in a state carriage, drawn
by eight horses, each horse led by an equerry
and with equerries riding and walking on
both sides of it, preceded by an officer of the
imperial stables on horseback, having pages
right and left of the box and guarded by four
Cossacks in state uniform. The vehicle was
followed by six pages of the chamber and
two equerries of the court, all on horseback.
Her majesty, the queen of Greece, her im
perial highness, the Grand Duchess Anasta
sla Mikhoallovna, the Grand Duchess of
Mecklenburg-Schwerin, her imperial high
ness, the Grand Duchess Maria Alexandro
vna, Duchess of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, and
her imperial highness, the Grand Duchess
Marie Pavlovna, were in a state carriage,
drawn by six horses, each horse led by an
equerry and having equerries on horseback
right and left of it, valets on foot on both
sides and followed by two pages of the cham
ber and two equerries on horseback.
RECEPTION OP THE CZAR.
After leaving the palace, the czar was re
ceived by the commander-in-chief of all the
troops, the Grand Duke Serglus, and then the
latter, with a most brilliant staff, Joined in
the procession. When the cortege entered
the city a salute of seventy-one guns was
flred from the top of the triumphal arch,
amid the ringing of bells. Upon entering
Moscow, his majesty was received by the
governor general on horseback, escorted by
his staff and aides-de-camp, and they joined
At the Rosurrectlon Gate the czar dis
mounted from his horse, and the empresses
descended from their, carriages in order to
worship at the shrine of the Iberian Ma
donna, the most sacred of the many holy
symbols In Moscow. At the shrine their maj
esties were received by the grand vicar of
Moscow, who presented them with the cross,
and sprinkled them with holy water. Their
majesties entered the chapel and knelt in
prayer before the image. At the conclusion
of their devotions, the czar remounted his
horse, and th« czarina re-entered her car
riage, and they passed through the gate of
the Saviour-Spasskiavorota into the Krem
lin, where they were received ■with all the
ecclesiastical pomp possible.
After having venerated the holy relics and
the holy images and prayed before the tombs
or their ancestors, their imperial majesties
went toward the Cathedral of the Annuncia
tion, preceded and followed in the same man
ner. Upon leaving the Cathedral of the Arch
angel Michael their majesties found assembled
at the door all the ladies of the court, who
had accompanied the czar and czarina from
the Cathedral of the Assumption. They fol
lowed their majesties to the door of the Cathe
dral of the Annunciation without entering it,
although they subsequently followed the im
perial party to the palace of the Kremlin.
At the gate of the Cathedral of the An
nunciation their majesties approached the holy
images and relics in the same manner as be
fore, and eventually left the sacred edifice
for the palace, traversing the principal halls
in state and being received everywhere with
the highest ecclesiastical, military and civil
At the moment their majesties entered the
palace of he Kremlin an artillery salute of
101 guns was flred, and throughout the jour
ney of their majesties the bells in all the
belfries in Moscow were tolled. The czar and
czarina will remain at the palace In partial
seclusion until May 25, when there will be a
grand review of the troops, and the ceremony

No money has b';i» sparei to noe th*
coronation festivities memorable in Russian
; history, and up to the present, all efforts
] have been crowned with success. The Rus
i sian government is said to have spent $20,000,
--i 000 on the fetes up to the present time, and
; the city of Moscow'is understood to have ex
pended nearly as much money, and more
: expenses have to be met. The Illuminations
• will last for three evenings In succession,
and will cost several millions of dollars to the
j government alone without counting what the
| city will contribute towards this portion of
j the expense. Besides these amounts, the ex
■ per.se3 which grand dukfs and grand duch
! esses, foreign princes and ambassadors, etc.,
i have been put to is really enormous, one
I authority going so far as to estimate that
I there was about $100,000,000 worth of jewelry
I alone in the procession of today.
A curious fact is that the three ancient
thrones to be used in the coronation have
been furnished up until they look as fresh
as new pinks in spite of their centuries of
age. The ivory throne of Ivan 111. had a
| careful washing and polishing. The first
i Romanoff's throne and the'throne of Alexis
I Miehaelovitch have both been rubbed up as
| good as new.
It was understood that It was the em
j peror's intention to cancel all ministerial
I warnings against Russian aewspapers and

| explained that the- third warning given a
j Russian newspaper by the press censors car
| rles with It entire suppression. There Is not
I a single newspaper of importance in St. Pe
tersburg or Moscow that has not had two
warnings hanging over Its head for some
years past. Consequently, editors who are
afraid of being ruined by a third warning
are careful to exclude from their papers
everything except of the most innocent na
ture. It was understood that the young czar
would relieve the press of this sword of Da
mocles hanging constantly over its head, but
his ministers caused him to change his mind.
Criminals and political prisoners will, how
ever, not be forgotten.

of Prince George Victor of Waldeck. Queen
Wilhelmlna's education was a matter of great
solicitude on the part of her father. The king
hated Germany and the Germans cordially
and never permitted hia daughter to learn the

the marriage of the young queen a tinge of
romance, which had otherwise been lacking.

Flood Already Receding:—High Wa
ter at Cloqoet and -at Other
CROOKSTON, Minn., May 21. — Although
the flood in this section of the country has
begun to recede, the situation is truly dis
couraging. There has been nothing like it
for years. Shallow lakes cover the prairie
for miles in every direction. Many farms
are almost entirely under water, and where
they are not the soil is saturated to such
an extent that it will b« weeks under the
most favorable circumstances before any
farm work can be done. The extent to which
the country is covered water can be
guessed at from the fact ;that one can start
from Warren, Minn., In a boat and row to
Hallock, forty miles nor^h, and not be obliged
to portage the boat to; exceed three miles
for that distance. Or, to put it another way,
it would be unsafe for an inexperienced
man to drive three miles in any direction
from the Great Northern track between War
ren and Hallock. When It is remembered
that this country is usually dry prairie, too
dry at times for the best crop results, it is
possible, perhaps, from these suggestions to
catch a glimpse of the condition in that sec
tion at this time.
The crop outlook is exceedingly unprom
ising in the northern counties. The re
ports of soil condition hare in no way been
exaggerated; there is mud wherever the
water has left a place uncovered, and it must
not be understood that this mud is the or
dinary kind. It is alm»»t a quagmire, so
deep that no driver ventnres upon it except
in favored places. The streets of the towns
are impassable, and they are in large part
The seeding has been practically completed
in all this section, though some of it is late.
The water is not putting a stop to farm work
in this section, generally speaking, but it is
threatening the life of the seed in the
ground. The opinion is that not much dam
age will be done, however.
The Red Lake river at Crookston is pour
ing its flood over the town, and not since
in the seventies has anything like it been
seen. Nearly a hundred residences are un
der water, some burled to the eaves. The
property loss has been heavy, many poor
people being deprived of all they had in the
world—their modest house furnishings. The
more fortunate residents have opened their
doors to the flood sufferers. The city council
voted to feed the people. until homes could
be secured, either in • new places, where old
ones had been hopelessly wrecked, or until
the old ones could be again occupied.
The water reached from the river toward
the business center of the city nearly three
blocks. Whole streets are under water and
the sidewalks are floating around in the mo
tionless pool like so many rafts. On the
west side of town the big_ dam at the Walker
mill is entirely submerged, and the river
•flows smoothly over it with no suggestion
in its surface of a fall. The streets are prac
tically impassable, even above the flood line.

CLOQUET,Minn.,May 21.—The C. N. Nelson
Lumber company and Cloquet Lumber com
pany's mills have shut down for a week be

SILVERITES MAY BOLT.
Secret Meeting of the Faction Held
Special to the Globe.
ABERDEEN, S. D., May 21.—Only vaguest
rumors are afloat regarding the actual pro
! ceedings of the free silver conference in this
city early this morning. Local Democrats
were not invited, and trains left so closely
upon the adjournment of the meeting that no
opportunity was given for interviews. It was
a secret meeting of a very few of the faithful,
headed by such leaders as Lynch, of Beadle,
and Fellows, of Aurora, It is rumored that
a contesting delegation was actually named,
but no Democrat in the city has a list of the
alleged delegates, and does not positively
j know that any were elected. There are strong
i reasons for believing that the conference was
more to discuss methods and plans for an
other state gathering of the free silver wing
of the Democracy for the purpose of electing
a straight delegation to Chicago. Col. Lynch
declared in favor of this plan, and it Is known
other 3 viewed It as he did. The silver Demo
crats claimed they had two-thirds of the dele
| gates present at the convention, but for the
| fact that the entire Black Hills was practically
j in control of three gold men, who were loaded
dewn with proxies, and that the convention
permitting them to vote put the silver forces
in a minority. Had the sllverites bolted on
the admission of these proxies, and they now
regret they did not, they claim they could
have broken up the convention and made a
strong case. The convention attracted wfde

received here from members of congress and
government officials, urging their respective
factions to stand pat and make no compromise.

EAU CLAIRE, Wls., May 21.—The latest
news from the gold mines, In the town of
Seymour, on the Eau Claire river, established
the fact beyond all peradventure that gold
ore, which can be worked at a profit, exists
within twelve miles of this city. Messrs.
Sharpless & Wlnchell, of Minneapolis, have
recently made an assay of specimens sent
from Big Falls, on the Eau Claire river,
which yield $11.88 to the ton in gold and 22
cents in silver.
W. Lehman, of St. Paul, assayed one speci

and $1.03 in silver, and another specimen
v.hlch showed $20 per ton in gold and $3.40 in
silver. Prof. Appleby, of Minneapolis, an ex

of gold in a specimen sent to him for exami
Ten years ago ore which yielded $20 a ton
would not have been considered worthy of

tracting, conditions have changed. Within
ten years processes have been Invented which
make profitable the mining of ore that docs
not yield over $7.50 a ton.
Gold was first discovered on the Eau Claire
river some ten years ago by James Patrick.
He had no means, and tried to induce Eau
Claire capitalists to invest, but without suc
cess. He came at an unlucky time. They
had but just emerged from a bitter experience
in Iron mining shares, which, like the money
in the Eastern fable, turned to leaves. Many

mention of ore, or traces, or indications, or
veins, or anything of that sort.
About a year ago J. D. Morgan ft Co., of
St. Paul, who have had experience in develop
ing mines and quarries, took hold. They have
proceeded quietly to develop the mines, using
their own means, and have established the
fact that gold ores In paying quantities can
be had In the region stated.
Twenty-dollar ore cannot be taken out and
hauled a long distance. The amount expend
ed for carriage would bear too large a propor
tion to the value. ,What is needed here are
plants of the best sort for treating the low
grade ores. High-grade ores may be taken to
the mill, but low-grade ore must have the

that paying ores exist here, Investment will
undoubtedly follow. It takes gold to get gold

DULUTH, Minn., May 21.—At the last meet
ing of the city council an ordinance was
passed limiting the speed of bicycles, requir
ing the use of bells and lanterns and keeping
bicycles off the sidewalks. Today the or
dinance went into effect and as a result there
is war between the cyclists and the police.
Early this morning cyclists with cow bells,
whistles and other Instruments of torture
came out and paraded the streets. They
were ordered to stop or they would bo ar
rested for disorderly conduct, and some
obeyed. One boy of fourteen was arrested,
but was released later. Tonight gongs, cow
bells, engine headlights, common stable lan
terns and other facetious ideas are being
sprung, and police this afternoon chased sev
eral cyclists with the Idea of arresting them.
As the police had no wheels their prey

George Harris and Frank Hill are locked
up at the Rondo street station. They are
supposed to be two of the trio of footpads
who held up three St. Paul citizens within an
hour last Monday night.
The two prisoners are tough men beyond
question; and the police say there Is not the
slightest doubt but what they are the "gun
grafters" for whom the law has a rod Id
Harris and Hill were captured while lying
In wait for a victim, and were rounded up by
as clever a piece of police work as has been
done anywhere. Capt. Lowell and his of
ficers have good reason to congratulate
themselves on the quirk success of their ef
forts, and deserve a great deal of credit for
last night's work.
For several nights back half a dozen of
ficers have been detailed In citizens' clothes
to patrol the hill district. The territory w&i
so divided that no two would cross each oth
er, yet all would be within hailing distance.
After the encouraging hauls made Monday
night the robbers evidently considered it
the part of wisdom to lay low uutil the ex
citement had died out. Hence the waiting of
ficers did not even get a glimpse of their
quarry until last evening at 10:30.
At the hour named-Officers Smith and Mey
ers were near the corner of Grand avenue and
Avon street. They noticed two men walking
in. rih, a block away, and at once began to
shadow them. When Harris and Hill reached
the corner of Avon str^Pt and Ashland avenue
they lay down behind a tree on the grass, be
tween the sidewalk and the curb. The place
i whereon they lay is slightly raised above the
sidewalk, and from this vantage point they
had a clear view in four directions.
When they planted themselves they evl
duuiy did not notice Officer! McHale and
Schillings, who were leisurely approaching;
or. If they did see them, the highwaymen
were going to let the two pedestrians get
■ right up to them, or jiasH them, before calling
a halt. One of them had partially risen and
the oilier one was resting In a handy position
on one arm, so that he could spring 10 his R
feet in a moment. No doubt it was surprise
that prevented them changing their position!
when the two officers quickly stepped from
the sidewalk and accosted them.
"What are you fellows doing here?" asked
McHale sharply us ha laid hands on Harris.
"Just resting," respond: d the thlof; but be
fore he had finished his answer each of the
officers had a cafe hold on his man, Me Hale
taking Harris and Schillings grabbing Hill.
Instinctively the officers put out a band to feel
for guns In tho pockets of their prisoner!.
And they found Just what they expected.
Harris had a 38-callber bulldog revolver,
fully loaded, in the right hand pockot of hla
coat. Hill had a similar weapon In his hip
pocket. They collapsed as soon as the shoot
ing irons were taken from them; but as soon
as these had been safely put away M( Hale
noticed (something about the nock of Harris.
He reached for it and pulled out a mask,
which was tied In s'ich a manner that It
could be Instantly nuspd to cover the upper
part of thf face. While McHale pulled ths
mask up over Harris' face to see how it
looked Schillings was looking for a similar bit
of paraphernalia on Hill. He found It in a
coat pocket. It was exactly like the one
Harris had; in fact, the two masks are but
two halves of a woman's stocking. First the •
foot and upper part of the stocking were
| cut off. then it was cut In two lengthwise.
j Pieces of stout strings were tied onto the <-mis
and fitted to the head. They are primitive
affairs, but quite handy, because they could
be so easily dropped under the chin and
stowed out of sight.
Just as the footpads had been landed by
McHale and Schilling! Officers Smith and
Meyers Joined the group, and the prisoners
were questioned. Harris did most of the
talking. He attempted to brazen It out by
saying they had Just been taking a walk.
Then he claimed to havo been visiting an
uncle, but his yarn was incoherent. He
said he lived on upper Jackson street, but
wouldn't say where. Hill claimed to reside
"on the hill," but did not attempt to lo
cate his domicile.
The badly wanted pair was marched down
to the Rondo station, where Detective Swee
ney sized them up as Minneapolis thieves.
In their pockets were found poker chips
marked Brown's, and there Is such a place
In the Mill City. They had no money worth
mentioning, and very likely they have gam
bled away what they secured from Messrs.
Warner, Angell and Harper Monday night,
if they are the men who did the work Mon
Both prisoners are smooth shaven, though
In need of the services of a barber. They
are intelligent looking, and wise enough to
talk very little. Hill Is apparently about
thirty to thirty-five years old, and stands
fully six feet high. Harris is only of medium
height, but he 1c an athletic, determined
When they were locked up Hill undressed
ana lay down, but did not go to sleep. He
lay on his back, with the bed clothes pulled
up under his chin, staring through the bars
at the flickering gas Jet. In the next cell
I to him was an uneasy party T/ho had evl-
I dently been drinking so much that he war In
' c!lned to be cranky when woke up. Across the
j narrow aisle Harris had thrown himself on the
j bed without removing even hia coat or shoes.
j He lay on his side, with his Derby hat partlal
j ly covering his face. When spoken to he vrai
j "dead to the world," and not a word could
j be gotten out of him.
Lieut. Pendy was very much regretting
I last night that they had not also caught the
i third robber. He is thought to be the one
\ who wielded the sandbag and "billy" that
knocked out and badly Injured J. R. Warner.
The gentlemen who were held up and rob
bed Monday night will be asked to take a
look at the two prisoner* this morning, for
purposes of identification. Fortunately, the
masks can be put on, and thus rigged out the
men will not be able to escape idemifkatlon,
' if they are really the ones wanted, and no
person who saw them last night seems to
have any doubt on this point. It Is hardly
likely that the men will be arraigned in court
today, as they may be prevailed upon to
tell who the third man Is.
