OVATION TO Ol ttN VICTORIA.

Liuidon, March !. Queen Victoria
and the fHople of the greatest city in
her empire yesterday celflwated the
victories which they believe ha vetrans
foruied the eampaisn in Sotih. Afriea
from one or reverse ' into oiie of Suc
cess. Thnt is the only explanation of
the unbounded. the unparalleled. enthu
siasm, with which hundreds of thou
sands hailed their sovereisu. In many
ways these demonstrations outdid
those of the diamond jubilee, although
there were no slitteriu paseants, no
triumphal arches, no procession of
princes: but only a dozen Life Guards
followed by a little old lady in the
plainest black costume, who had come
for a few days stay at F.iukiusliaui
palace, as she has done many a time
Vet her hold uihii the hearts of her
people was probably never more strik-
Yesterday's impular outburst was al
luost impromptu. The depth of feelius
which these ilemotist rations repre
sented could only be snused by those
who miusled with the crowd. Mothers
In deep moruiiis for sons killed on the
far off veldt struggled bravely with
the most hilarious tocatch a gliuipseof
the itieeu. whose womanly sympathy
and thoushtfnlness for the soldiers had
touched their hearts. As one very old
woman said: "I've seen her many a
time, but she said she was sorry for
i.iy bov. and I must see Mr asain be
fore I die."
Intermingled with the rejoicings of
patriotism there was a particularly
keen appreciation of the queen's per
sonam v her womanliness, her great
age. This little touch of reverence for
sex rather than for sovereignty ren
dered the hnse crowds perfectly tract
able in the hands of the good-natured
police ami it was not a hard tapk to
induce them to surge back and to maUt
wav for the rovnl carriage. When tin
queen of Great Untain and Ireland
and the empress of India did pass,
nodding as if to many friends instead
of bowing with royal restraint, there
echoed under the roar of cheers many
heartfelt expressions, such as "God
bless her." "God keep her." "My, but
she's a brave woman," and scores more
like t 1i-iii.
It was sirnll wonder that now and
again tears of jov rolled down me
cheeks of the asiil sovereign.
The seiiii-orini.il duties undertaken
by the queen during the day would
have tried the resources of many a
Woman under M years of age. Starting
carlv from Windsor by train she
reached the metropolis shortly after
noon. I ntil she reached liuckiugiinui
palace there was never a moment of
i:iet. Cheers spread along her routt'
like prairie lire. The scene In the quad
rangle of the palace, after the queen's
arrival, when lords and commoners
joined in singing the national anthem
was unprecedented, and will probably
never be repealed during the present
reign. Viscount Cross ami Mr. ( ham
berlain acted as spokesman and gra
ciously greeted the royal visitor, but It
was to I.adv Huller that the queen
quickly turned with a grateful smili
Then, in the presence of the legislators
