Alix of Hesse, Alexan andra of Anhalt Dessan, and Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein. The bridal gown is a white satin, with just a suggestion of warmth in a cream tint. The front of the skirt is covered with two deep flounces of white Honiton lace, which was designed by the late prince con sort for the queen and was afterwards worn by the Princess Christian at her wedding just a quarter of a century ago. The de sign is floral. The train is gored and hangs away from the figure in graceful folds, which are rounded at the back in the shape some milline!s call balloon and others gabot. The whole dress is bordered with orange blossorms and the lace front falls of this are ruched with orange blossoms. The bodice is trimmed with lace like that on the skirt that goes from waist to shoulder in a line which adds to the beauty of the lbodice's well formed figure. The bodice is buttoned on and a girdle of orange blos soms hides the junction and falls in long ends over the back, one of these ends being slightly longer th an the other. The sleeves are of a new fashion and are made of lace which is lined with silk and muslip and al lows the arma to be seen through. The bride's traveling diees is of white sicilienne trimmed with white ostrich feathers and a little white lace.

The bride's mother has been a patronese of a trained nurser' school in London, one of the graduates from which was in attendance upon Lord Tenny ona, the poet laureate, during his recent illness. The latter, in parting with his nurse, expressed at wish to give somni testi nionial of appreciation of her services. She suggestei a copy of his poems, with an inscription be the author, that she and her fellows of the training school might in turn present aa is wedding gift to the daughter of their benefactress.

On Thursday be, the empress and their sauites will take their departure for England. THE KAISER IN ENGLAND. The Party Is Met by Enthuslastle Crowds. LoDnow, July 4.-Emperor William, of Germany, arrived at Fort Victoria, near Sheerness, this morning. He was enthusi astically received by crowds assembled to witness the landing of the imperial party. Prince of Wales, Duke Clarence, duke of Edinburgh, duke of Connught and other members of the imperial family, all in Ger man uniforms, gathered on the pier. When the German yacht and escort were abreast of the first of the British war vessels the letter thundered forth an ear-splitting salute from guns. The German emperor wore the uniform of a British admiral, and was ao companied by a brilliant staff. Upon land ing the emperor kissed the prince of Wales, and after lunching on board the Hohenzol lern, the royal party started for Windsor. Sheerness harbor was a grand and beauti ful sight. Both the channel and training squadron were at anchor there, and a guard of honor, probably finer than ever before, saluted the monarch. In addition there was gathered a fine flotilla of torpedo boats. Vastly imposing and warlike were some ironclads and cruisers. It is roughly estimated there were fifty war vessels dis played. They lined each side of the harbor and wore backed up by hcge forts and smaller ships. All dressed from stem to stern with flut tering bunting, they formed a picture cal culated to make an Englishman's breast fill with pride. At noon a steel cruiser, which led the advance of the scouts, sig nalled the approach of the German squad ron. The signal was repeated on to the admiral's ship and soon the royal salute began to thunder forth from different war vessels. The yards were manned with al most miraculous rapidity and the bands played a German anthem. Taken asawhole, a greeting extended to the queen's warlike young grandson was without parallel in the history of England, and general opin ion is expressed that William cannot have failed tb be delighted with his reception. The emperor stood upon the bridge of his yacht dressed in the uniform of a British admiral and was accompanied by the em press and a brilliant staff. The em press was eagerly delighted with the grand reception. The Hollenzollern steamed through the lines of warships followed by the German ironoladesbusy responding to the welcome with the salute of guns. As each and every vessel having saluting the rank fired twenty-one guns. The din and roar and smoke may be imagined. The landing of the stave was most beautifully decorated with flowers and bunting. As the emperor stepped ashore he was met by the prince of Wales and graciously kissed the heir ap parent and then cordially received the greetings of other members of the royal family and bowed to the welcome of oth ers. Members of the diplomatio corps and army and navy officers present with shore uniforms, and bedecked with orders of all kinds, made a brilliant background. Af ter luncheon on the yacht, the em peror inspected the guard of honor and ordered compliments upon the soldierly bearing of the men. Artillery salutes be gan again as the train started for Windsor. Every station along the line was filled with crowds of people who cheered enthusiastic ally. During a short halt at Waterloo the emperor, responding to incessant volleys of cheers, stepped out on the platform of the carriage and repeatedly saluted. The sta tion at Windsor was one mass of color, the whole platform being draped with crimson and the walls covered with the colors of Germany. Grenadier guards formed the guard of honor. Upon the arrival of the train the princessof Wales, accompanied by her daughters and sister stepped out of the waiting room and greeted the emperor and empress. After an all-around hand shak ing and kissing, the party took carriages and started for the castle. The route of the procession was lined with troops which had hard work to keep the people in, cbeck. so close were they packed together that they threatened every moment to break through the ranks of the soldiers. Every where there was a lavish display of floral decorations, buntings and flags, with plen tiful motto grettings. So unceasing the ovation, the German emperor and empress replied with salutes. The procession halted at Guild Hall, where the town clerk cead an address of welcome, ex pressino trust that the alliance between the imperial and royal families would guaran tee lasting friendship between the kindred peoples, and conduce the maintainance of the peace of Europe and the general ad vance of civilization. The mayor made a short, effusixe speech, and the emperor made a laconio reply. The procession then started toward the qua drangle of the castle. Here the Knights of St. George, whose bright uniforms con trasted with the aged appearance of the wearers, were grouped around the statue of Charles II. Life guards and yeomen of the i guard lined the quadrangle, while the scar let-uniformed soldiers filled the ap pronobes and ramparts of the tower. Amid cheers and salvos of artillery the procession entered the Castle grounds, As the carriages reached the quadrangle a band of Scota of the guards played the na tional anthem, The emperor's carriage stopped beneath the portico of the Water loo door. On alighting the emperor entered the hall, preceded by the lord chamberlain. The queen met him at the threshold and affectionately embraced him. All the roy alties followed the emperor and the door vwre closed even on the favored few who had been privileged to see thus far. Some minutes afterward the emperor ap peared in the quadrangle necompanied by I the prince of Wales and others, and pro ceeded as snual to inspect the troops. He shook hands and chatted with the officers I and watched the men defile out of the I gates, and then returned to his apartments. After a short rest the emperor and empress dined with the queen. Later the emperor held a semi-oficial reception. TOWARD GUILD HALL. All Eyes Are Turned In That Directlod at Present. [Copyright, 1891, Now York Associated Press.1 EiatRIN, July 4.-The foreign office is re ceiving many telegrams to-night indicating the character of Emperor William's recep tion in England. Both public and official interests are centered on the reception at Guild hall Friday next. Diplomatic circles here, and probably of every government in Europe, have reason to expect that the emperor will announce the nature of the treaty just concluded, maintaining the dreibund. According to belief in official circles, it includes three distinct agree ments-one between Germany and Austria, similar to the first defensive treaty; another between Germany and Italy, and a third between Austria and Italy. The Gomman Italian treaty will be made pub lic if Lord tialisbury gives con sent, while that between Austria and Italy will remain unrevealed. The idea is that the purely defensive character of the Italian agreement outlht to assist in modi fying the irritation of France, Assurances given by the London police of the safety of the emperor do not satisfy the authorities here, and it is said the reports of Berlin police agents who have been in London some time cause distrust regarding precautions taken by the English authori ties. The Berlin authorities are urging the English governwent to stretch English law against preventive arrests and before the emperor Is exposed to the view of myriads crowding the streets to make a clean haul of all suspested persons, of whom a list has been furnished by the Berlin police in London. The jury at Raymond, Miss., in the oaes of Hugh West. charged with the murder of his brother, Major John West, returned a verdict of not guilty.

After running forty feet on the ties the forward car toppled to the left, the rear one to the right. The forward car turned completely over and landed right side up. The other fell twenty feet, turning upside down, and one set of trucks fell on top of it, crushing the car to splinters. Under this place most of the dead were found. Surgeons and a relief train were sent at once. The scenes among the dead and dying were heartrending. One little baby lost its father and mother.

Horn, Idaho, July 4.- [Special.] - A shooting affair in which two men escaped death by the narrowest possible chance, occurred here yesterday. Some difficulty having arisen between Geo. Cunningham, conductor on the Rocky Mountain division, and a gambler named Burton. The latter procured a pistol and watching his chance as Cunningham was corning down the street about four a. m. opened fire. One bullet from a Smith & Wesson forty-four grazed his cheek and another grazed the right knee, tearing a hole in his trousers but merely breaking the skin in both oases. A third shot was without effect. Mistaking Cond Gowling for the intended victim Bur ton pointed the pistol straight at his breast at close range and pulled but fortunately the weapon was empty or missed fire. Bur ton then fled but a crowd quickly gathered and gave chase. Had he been caught the state would have been saved the proseen tion, but the crowd took the wrong scent. The railroad men, however, secured a switch engine and followed Bur ton, dropping members of the posse all along the line. Burton was cap tured by Deputy-Sheriff Broskhagen five miles from town. He drew two pistols and showed fight but surrendered under cover of the sheriff's gun. A fewoool heads in the crowd was the only thing that pre vented a lynching. Burton endeavared to implicate Abe Lemley, a dive keeper, by making the statement that Lomley gave him the gun to shoot Cunningham, but was not sustained and Lemley was discharged. Burton pleaded guilty to assault with in tent to kill and is held. A would-be tough from Nozon failing to appreciate the tem per of the people on a fancied provocation drew a pistol on Engineer Boyle, but the gun was taken from him and he was intro duced to a different mode of warfare. He left town with a friend to identify him on his arrival home as Boyle beat him to a jelly. The citizens have organized and ordered all lawless characters, male and female, out of town. Many have left. WM. IH. GLADSTONE DEAD. Son of the English Statesman Dies From Paralysis. Loenoo, July 4.-Wm, Henry Gladstone, eldest son of the great English statesman, died this morning.
