London. April 2.
Westminster Abbey has been eloped this week
•or the first time since the Victorian coronation,
r^aon Robinson at the final service preached ■
most impressive sermon on the historical and
religious associations of the royal consecration
Ferrtce in June. "A thousand years in Thy
sight are- hut as yesterday," was happily chosen
es the text: and in a few eloquent sentences the
dign'ty of the most ancient coronation cere
monial in the -world was enforced as a service
Btttedatine the oldest architectural remains in
the Abbey, and running back a thousand years
into the dreamy twilight of the past. The coro
nations at Rheims had ended, and no other
;ountry had so ancient a service for the conse
rratlon of a monarch: and the essential feature?
sf it, the anultlim with oil, the Zadok anthem,
the fifteen baeaefasja. the placing of the sceptre
in the Kir.c's hands, the coronation, the com
munion, and the acclamations. "Long live the
Kinp* May the Kinp live forever!" had been
retained from the ancient ritual. The service
had Men translated from Latin into Enpllsh.
ix.d additions had been made to It such as the
Eonxmla of the presentation of the Bible with
■m words. "Our gracious Kinc. -we present you
with this book, the most valuable thins that the
■world affords": but substantially it has re
mained the medieval ritual of the consecration
of. a bishop adapted to the coronation of a
sovereign. Once only has the communion office
been omitted — when James II was crowned:
ar.d ence alone has the anthem Zadok the
.- .-■• been discarded when Edv.-ar<l the Con
fessor "was crowned. No essential element of
the ancient service would be sacrificed or slurred
In June. Some of The redundant phrases and
unimpressive repetitions introduced during the
last two hundred years might be pruned and
thinned out: but in all material respects the
ritualism and symbolism would be unchanged.
Canon Robinson, in a forecast of the coming
:eremoniaL virtually repeated the details of the
Victorian coronation. A large raised platform.
: known as the theatre, would be erected between
the chair and the sanctuary. The thrones
would be in the centre of the theatre, and King
Edward's chair with the fateful stone of Scone
m the sanctuary. The Dean and Chapter would
meet the Das; and Queen at the west end of
the nave, and the procession would be as at th-
Victorian coronation. "I was glad when they
said unto me. we shall go into the House of
the Lord." As they entered the choir a group
0 "vVePtrr.ir.si' r scholars would shout: "Viva*
Alexandra Regina, Vivat Eduardus Rex." The
King would be presented by the Archbishop of
Canterbury four times from each side of the
theatre, and the assent of the spectators to the
coronation would be loyally proclaimed. The
litany and opening portion of the communion
office woula be recited by two bishops in copes.
and 2. short sermon preached by the Bishop of
London. The coronation oath would be followed
by the ancient hymn, "Yon: Creator." and the
anointing would be accompanied by the anthem
"ZadGk the priest." The sword and spurs would
be presented, with the imperial robes and orb,
the ring, the sceptre with the cross, and the rod
with the dove. The King would be crowned by
the Archbishop of Canterbury, and the Bible
delivered to him. After the Archbishop's bene
dictions and the Te Deosa the King would be
enthroned and -would receive the homage of the
* fttona, peers and other orders. The anointing
l a crowning of the Queen by the Archbishop
cf York would be followed by the royal obliga
tions and the communion office. At the close of
Hie service the King would lay some of the
royal ornaments upon the altar of St. Edward
beforo passing out of the Abbey. The only in
novations -which are Indicated BO this forecast
are .- acclamations of the "Westminster schol
ar? fit the entrance of the sovereigns, and the
coronation of the Queen by the Archbishop of
Tori-. Otherwise the function will correspond
clnrrly in ritual and detail with the coronation
of Guerre 111 ad Queen Charlotte.
The Earl Marshal and the Other officers of the
Crovn have already entered upon the transfor
mation of the venerable Abbey for the corona
tion. V.'hen the theatre and the tiers of gal
leries have been constructed, the interior will
be bartly recognizable. The sacrarium will be
fiar.ked on the south side by the royal box. and
on the north Bide by benches for the bishops and
Abbey clergy. There will be two chairs in front
of the royal box, where the King and Quean
wi!l tit during the sermon, with officers of state
on either Fide. St. Edward's chair will stand in
front of the altar, Bad the King will be Bested
:r. it when he is anointed and crowned. T"..e
Queen will kneel upon a cushion on the altar
steps when she is anointed and crowned. Queen
Adelaide occupied the coronation chair of Queen
Mary II In similar circumstances, although she
was a queen consort and not a reigning sov
ereign; but this innovation Is not to be re
peated. The Archbishop of Canterbury will
have a purple velvet chair on the north side
cf the altar. There will be two chairs with
faldstools Dor the use of the King and Queen
daring the communion service: and on the
broad platform, or theatre, between the four
pillars of the lantern there will be two thrones,
one higher than the other, where they will re
ceive the homage, of the peers, peeresses, am
bassadors and spectators. The general arrange
ment of galleries for spectators will be similar
to that adopted at the Jubilee service In the
Abbey. The Chapel of St. Edward the Con
fessor, behind the altar, is to be converted into
waiting chambers, where the King can be di
vested of his coronation vestments, and where
the heavy crowns worn by both sovereigns can
be laid aside before th*> procession is reformed
for the recessional.
The Lorr.barri-st. bankers, in taking meas
ures for the reproduction of the oldtime signs
in the coronation decorations, have set an ex
;•Bttßle; •Bttßle which might be effectively Imitated in
other streets. The significance of the street
Buncs might easily be Illustrated with plctur
«Kju» effect by the display of tl._- signs and
symbols of the mediaeval handicrafts and trades.
tTheapslde would be divided between the butch
■ ers and the haberdashers as a market with a
Poultry Corner; Bread and Milk sts. would be
illuminated with reminiscences of oldtime bak
ers and milk dealers; Paternoster Row would
be dedicated to the memories of turners of beads
for prayers: Cornhill would renew Its youth as a
corn market: Threadneedle or Threadneedle-st.
would resume Its connection with needle selling;
6t. Margaret Pattens would be reserved for the
patten makers. Founder's Court for the brass
founders and Tokenhouce Yard for the manu
facturers of copper tokens. Stow's Survey of
London would enable a commission of anti
quarians to reproduce the centres of ancient
handicrafts and trades, and to restore the
hosiers,, cordwainers. curriers, ironmongers,
vintners, mercers, weavers, grocers, skinners,
fishmongers, cullers, basket makers and under
takers to their historic environment. There
i* little probability that any comprehensive
scheme for antique embellishment of London
town will be adopted; but the experiment is to
be tried on a restricted scale in Lombard-st,
Even there It will be necessary for the decora
tors to be on their guard against historical ac
curacy. Lombard-st. took it* name from the
lombardp, or Italian goldsmiths, who settled
in London after, the Expulsion of the Shylocks
'- from. Old. Jewry, «j.^ advertised their trade by
the vthree gold pills" of the Medici' family.
[■; Lombard -Bt_ in Its primitive insignia would be
modernized indeed as the headquarters of r-iwn
brok ors.o r5. irho have monopolized the use of the
Italian device.
The Lombard-st. committee have decided not
to po back too far Into the misty ranges of the
storied past. The first London directory, pub
lished in I<>77. Is the basis of their selections
of street signs, and this excludes the most
picturesque period of the street, when its busi
ness was not confined to pawnbroking, banking
and the goldsmiths' trade, but was of a miscel
laneous nature, comprising taverns, book shops,
linen drapers' stalls, muffin bakeries and nearly
all the mechanical trades. Pome of the signs
in use before the Great Fire have been retained
for picturesque effect, and there will be no lack
of variety when these are reproduced in paint
and gilt and brought out at night by gas jets,
transparencies and electric light. About two hun
dred of these ancient signs have been authenti
cated with the help of an enthusiast, Mr. Hilton
Price, and arc to be exhibited as nearly as pos
sible on the site where they were originally set
up. There will be a miniature zoo in paint and
limelight. Th.-re will be horses and lions, black
and white; bulls, rams and unicorns, but no
bear; foxes with or without bunches of grapes:
cats in the fiddle, and three herrings beside th<*
civet cat: Sir Thomas Gresham's golden grass
hopper and the swan on the hoop; ravens, goats
supporting the crown, hares on the run. black
eagles with spreading wings, and swan on the
hoop: haunches of venison, winged horses and
the phoenix. This nondescript zoological collec
tion will be confined mainly to the seventeenth
and eighteenth centuries. There will be a mis
cellaneous assortment of angels, mermaids,
kings, blackmoors, cardinals' caps, bishops'
heads, stars. Georges. Adams, Eves, stars, blue
bells, anchors, crowns, bellows, bails, puns, art!
chokes, roses, fleeces, saws, cups, keys and
Bibles. Some of these quaint signs the raven
among them will have the respectable an
tiquity of live centuries, and all will be Identi
fied with the history of the street. There will
be as many as five tavern signs, with hospital
ity symbolized in the olden style, and the gold
smiths, money lenders and tradesmen of by
gone generations will advertise their business
anew with quaint simplicity— the bookseller
with a cradle, the powderman with a civet cat.
and so on until the top of the street la reached.
Th»re will be at least one symbol In Lombard
st. worthy of th*» best traditions of the financial
centre of the British Empire. This is the sign
of th» golden grasshopper from the family crest
of Sir Thomas Gresham. He was an Eliza
bethan goldsmith, dealing in plate, jewels, coins
and lace; and until he was knighted he lived
over his shop in Lombard-el. He was a banker
and a money lender, and he charged percent
ages which would excite the envy of modern
pawnbrokers. He had correspondents on th*
Continent, to whom he commended English
travellers with letters of credit; and hr. ex
changed foreign coin and melted down bullion
for recolnage. He was an eminent financier.
who enjoyed the confidence of the Ministers of
Mary and Elizabeth, reduced the enormous
charges of the bankers of Bruges and Antwerp
in financing royal loans by inducing Londoners
to take them themselves; built the first Royal
Exchange at his own COSt as a meeting place
for merchant?, and converted London Into the
commercial centre of Europe. The first London
bourse displayed at every corner pinnacle th>
golden grasshopper '>f Graham. ;ind it had
classical and mercantile associations, for it was
the favorite ornament of the Athenians in their
b«st days, and was Identified with the earliest
enterprises of Phoenician commerce There can
b<» no more hiPtoric symbol of the worli
activity of the financial resources of n
Lombard-st. L N- F -

Colon, April 16. — A launch belonging- to th»»
Panama Canal Company returned here th:-<
morning from Bocns del Toro. bringing reports
that th" situation there is growing more seri
ous. The Liberal troops under General Buendia,
have reached Old Bank, a settlement on an isl
and near the entrance to Bocas del Toro. Gen
oral Huendia pave notice to the government
commander at Boca* yesterday that fourteen
hours would be given him in which to surrender
the town, and that his non-compliance with this
ultimatum would result in immediate attack.
The commander of the government force? de
clined the terms offered by the revolutionary
p c n«ral. The canal company's launch left Bocaa
for Colon before the fourteen hours had expired.
The revolutionists at Boras have already
seized steam launches, barges, etc.. belonging to
the United Fruit Company, which are in
dispensable to .the banana business of that
town. Bocas del Toro is entirely devoted to the
banana business, ; and American interest? there*
pre almost supreme. The- seizin of th( property
of the I'nlted Fruit Company is receiving the
attention of the United States gunboat Machias.
which la now the only warship at Bocas.
Rprlin. Apr!! X.— The Tariff Committee of the
Reichstag', aft».-r a reconsideration of the bacon
clause of the new bill, has fixed the duty on bacon
ar 3* mark." tH-r double hundredweiKht. but ft Is
not subject to the minimum tariff for reciprocity
purposes, as is the case of other meats.
The duty on meat extracts was fixed at 30 mark?,
and the. duty on sausages was made To marks, In
stead of 45 marks, as proposed by the government.
The Imperial Secretary of State for the Interior.
Count yon Posadowsky-Wehner, in the course of
the discuMiion declared that the duties imposed by
the committee on cattle and meat were not accept
able to the srovernment.
Aft^r an Indecisive discussion on the subject of
the prohibition of the Importation of meats, etc.,
treated with boracic acid the committee adjourned.
Herr Antrick. Socialist, alluded to the prohibi
tion of meats prepared with boracic acid, before
the Tariff Committee, as a pi^ce of povernmental
hypocrisy, and said the Americana were risrht in
pronouncing it a hygienic humbug He cited the
opinion of a German chemical society to the effect
that this prohibition was unjustifiable. Hrrr
Antrirk concluded by sayinK-" "Such measures can
only lead to a tariff war."
Count yon Posadowsky-Wehner said, in defence
of the Ministry, that the government could only
depend upon technical advice, that American views
could not be considered, and that the interests of
domestic : ... ■• producers could not be. regarded as
the deciding voice in the matter. He said the
government was supported unanimously by the
Imperial Health Office and the Health Council,
whose opinions must be respected. Of course,
said ■i:- Secretary >''. State, for the Interior, the
entire Council has not been consulted, but ■;.- ad
vice of that division of the Council having the
supervision .if such questions as the above ha.=
bean taken.
After the adoption of the Agrarian Increases
Count yon Posaaowsky-Wehner again plainly said
that the meat and cattle amendments were abso
lutely unacceptable to the government. At this
state of th. deliberations Herr Bebel, the Socialist
leader, inquired why it was necessary further to
discuss the bill If the majority was unable to
come to an agreement with the government. He
said it would be better to cease wasting time, and
that the business interests of the- country de
manded a speedy clearing up of the matter.
Herr Helm, the Centrist leader, who was largely
Instrumental in inserting th« minimum scale of
duties on animals and meats, declared It useless
to continue the discussion unless the government
accepted the amendments.
Dr. Paachi the National Liberal leader also
said he regarded further discussion to be useless
if the Centrists adhered to the impossible in
Berlin. April Great Britain has accepted Ger
i many's proposition for an international conference
i to regulate the use of wireless telegraphy. The
j other powers to which the proposition was made,
I namely, th.' United States. France and Russia, have

! pect favorablt- answers, especially from the United
State', which has taken much interest In the
il-rnu.iy's suggestion embrace*? merely- calling a
conference but without definitely formulated prop
ositions for discussion. '
\ Germany ha? also a?k<=d the powers to set forth
in their answers if they wished Germany to formu
late propositions to lay before the conference or
leave the matter entirely to the conference.

the most necessary member of the N-w- -
company who has been ill this we^k. rested in the
afternoon, and appeared last night as Mile. Lange.
The theatre was full. This opera, like most of the
others this company has produced, was some
what shabbily put on the stage, and the singing.
with one or two exceptions, was of none too high
?n orTer But the other operas have been re
deemed by exoellent acting, especially in the farci

To the Editor of The Tribune:
Sir: I find thai the reports which have been cir
culated as to my recent illness have misrepre
sented Its cause and greatly exaggerated it- *<?-
V 1 ami are therefore calculated to do m? cor.
siderable professional injury. Will you oblige, tne
by publishing the truth In ' ' -•-■-! Of them? I
suffered (ron a sever* cold, and was obliged to
undergo a minor operation to cure a slight local
inflammation. I am entirely well again. The clos
ing Of my engagement with "The Christian com
pany is not because my health prevents my reap
pearance this season, but • cause Mi ---- Liebier
i- ,-„ chose to terminate my contract rather than
to wait until Arril 17. the Hate set by my physician.
Dr j Wilson Shifts, on which I could resume act
ing on the eround that It was necessary to send
some one "to save the company" In the mean
"time" time ELSIE LESLIE.
