Katiooal Anthem Mag-niflceatly Rendered.
As soon as they were seated the
curtain rose, disclosing; the entire cast
of the opera, among them Madame
Melha and the De Keszkes. grouped
upon the stage. Then followed such a
rendering of the national anthem as it
never had before, after which was car

gramme. Including the second act of
"Taunhauser," the thirdact of Gounod's
"Romeo and Juliet," and the fourth act
of the "Huguenots." The efforts of the
singers and the orchestra were received
with the greatest enthusiasm, and the
performance surpassed In every way the
famous gala performance given at Cov
ent garden for the Emseror f Ger

The scene was cne of Incompara
ble loveliness. The whole Interior of
the structure was hidden by freshly cut
flower, principally roses. The upper
tier of boxes was a mass of Marechal
Nell roses, the next tier a mass of pink
rose, and the bottom tier of rich dark
red roses. White flowers adorned tie
royal box, which was surmounted by
an enormous floral crown of crimsm
roses and golden orchids. The box was
decorated in the Louis XVI style, the
chairs and settees being covered with
white and yellow .silk. The same ma

monds, formed the ceiling.

The box was a beautiful picture. The
Prince of Wales wore the red uniform
of a field marshal and among all the
other princes there were no two uni
forms alike. The royal group Feemed a
collection of glittering orders and beau
tiful gowns. The Princess of Naples
wore some wonderful diamonds, and
Grand Duchess Sersrius displayed the
largest emerald In the world. It was
noticeable, however, that the royals
were less lavish In Jewelry than many

The queen went back to Windsor yes
terday, nefore leaving Buckingham
palace Fhe received the two houses of
parliament, the provincial mayors and a
number of other deputations. Then she
drove Into thecity and reviewed 10.000
school children who sang the national
anthem. Taking the train at Padding-
ton station she then started back to
Windsor, stepping at Eton to see the
tchool fcnys, of whom her grandson.
Prince Arthur of Cannought, is one. The
Journey to Windsor was another tri
umphal progress a repetition of the one
from Buckingham palace to Windsor in
1S8T, but vastly more imposing. Tri
umphal arches were erected at the
stepping places. In Slough addresses
were tendered to her majesty by several
local official bodies; at Etcn by the or
ganizations of the colleges, and the
Thames conservancy, the body which con
trols the river, offered its royal congrat
ulations at Windsor bridge.
The final episode cf the progress wes
at the castle gates, where the addresses
from the Windsor bodies were received.
As the queen's carriage appeared at
the entrance to her home the national
anthem was chanted in welcome by 300
voices. The day's festivities were
brought to an end by an illumination of
The Times, commenting editorially on
President McKlrley's letter of congratu
lation to the queen, says: "It will be
read with pride and satisfaction
throughout the empire as an official to
ken of the particular friendship and es
teem In which the English monarchy
and the great English-speaking republic
hold each ether." Then referring to De
pew's comparison of the Jubilee to the
reception given to General Washington
by the American people on his way
from Mount Vernon to New Tork to as
sume the position of first president of the
United States, The Times rays: "No- !
body, perhaps, but an American Is able '
quite to appreciate the significance of i
that felicitlous and appropriate compli- I
ment. but Englishmen are familiar
enough with American feeling to under
stand something of what It Implies."

and the royal party were entertained at

There were 800 guests.
