squadron, the naval funeral procession
slowly steamed. Ahead were eight
destro)ers. Paddling leisurely after
them was the royal yacht Alberta, half
screened by the awning on the poop,
the royal coftin placea on a crimson
dais, whose drawn curtains left free
to view the magniieont casket and
robes. Close by was the Trinity house
yacht Irene, watching the course,
while in the wake of the cofi came
the royal yacht Victoria and Albert,
with King Edward and Queen Alex
andria and the English royal family;
the royal yacht Osborne, with other
royal personages, the imperial yacht
Hohenzollern, with Emperor William,
the duke and duchess of Connaught and
others; the admiralty yacht Enchant

THE LAND CEREMONIES.
The land ceremonies, consisting in
bringing the coffn from Osborne
house to the pier at Cowes, was
scarcely less interesting than the naval
function. At noon the gorgeous trap
pings of Chappelle Ardaits were dis
turbed. Over the ceffn was thrown
the coronation robe worn by the girl
queen. On this was placed the royal
regalia, wand, sceptre and crown,
which were scarcely ever used by the
queen in her life time. Danmmy regalia
will be buried with her at Frogmore.
Thousands lined the route in u'owe.
At 1.30 p. ma. King Edwvard and Em
peror William emerged from Osborne
house, both in admiral'a unifor m. Tben

yesterday witnessed a majestic and
awe-inspiring pageant and bade a last
farewell to their beloved ruler, happy
in the circumstances of her death, sov
ereign of the greatest naval power in
the world, ard fortunate in the manner
of her obsequies.
The dominant Lete was its grand
simplicity. The sad procession glided
along in beautiful order and precision
as though moved by some hidden
power. There was no asecident of any
sort ashore or afloat. The weather was
traditional "queen's weather." At
2 a. m., today's weather seems some

render their even grander military
tribute to the queen, who desires to be
buried as a soldier's daughter. Thou

THR COST OF WAR
"The supplementary estimate of
16,000,000 for m -eting the expenses
of the war rt S .th Africa and the
military opetrati .- ia China to the
end of the current financial year were
agreed to on Tuesday by a majority of
284 votes against 8. It was rendered
necessary by miscalculations of the
governm at, as Mr. Brodrick candidly
admittedt, of the probable course of
events at er 0ftober, when it was sup
posed the series of successes of Lord
Roberts would lead to the collapse of
the Boer opposition. Instead of the
subsequent scale of expenses being
only about a fourth of what they had
previously been, there has in fact been
no reduction since the period of gue
rilla war began. Over two hundred
thosand men will still have to be
kept indefinitely in the country, even
including the volunteers, and in addi
tion a force of ten thousand men con
stituting the tnew Transvaal police re
quires an expenditure of ?1.000,000.
Of the sum asked for, ?is,500,0CO will
be reqvired for the purposes of the
war. it wil', h ,wever, only be nece.
sary to raise a sam of eleven millions,
in round umbers, as a sum of about
five millions remiains of the amount
voted in July. The Chancellor of tbe
Exchequer was -given powers of bor
rewingt the sum of eleven maillions
either by a war loan, Exchequer bonds,
or by treasury bills; and he believes
this will be sufficient, till the end of
the financisi year on the expectation
of revetune made in April."-Saturday
