paid honor to the royal dead, for
the official representatives of world
powers united in the ceremony. The
salute of 21 guns fired in the palace
yard as the procession moved off is
the "highest honor that can be paid
to any person. '' , , '
It was shortly before 11 o clock
that the procession started; an im
posing scene as group after group
found Its way into line, headed by
Capt Robert Parker, Waipa, recog

The lonk. long line of poolas, two
abreast, too long to extend straight
out into King street, had turned and
re-turned in the broad roadway that
leads out . from . the palace yard.

Deeply Impressive, too, were the
notes of the "Star Spangled Ban

column -through the gate.
Salute' of 21 Guns .
As the black and , white draped
catafalque moved off behind these 204
stalwart men, the salute of 21 guns,
fired by a battery of the 1st Field
Artillery rfrom the roadway between
the palace and the library, began.
This was Battery D, commanded by
Capt B. Frankenberger, with Ueuts.
F. J. Cory and Walter Malone. The
four guns fired in succession at in
tervals of one minute each, making a
total of 21 minutes for the entire
'"salute. "-' '.' ' -

the entire distance from' the palace
