RECOGNIZES QUEEN'S HELP Respect for New Sovereign — America's Sympathy Ex pressed — All Busi ness Suspended. ■(By The Associated Prf»». 1 London. May 7. — Saturday is usually the gayest night of the week in London, but to-r.ight a Sabb.-.thlike quiet per vades the city. It la a capital in mourn ing. All the- theatres and music halls have closed their doors, and the band concerts in the parks, which draw tens of thousands of the working people dur ing the long spring twilight, are aban doned. The people wander idly about the street?, looking at the portraits of Edward VII wreathed in crepe in the shop windows. Multitudes drift into St. James's Park, staring at the darkened windows of Buckingham Palace, where the body of the dead King lies, and Marl borough House? near by. through the gates of which officials and messengers come and go constantly. Here tho n«-w King has had to set aside his personal grief to busy himself with the affairs Of crown and family. Many wt-ar badges of mourning. Th« whole kingdom, indeed, is a nation in mourning. Ireland has forgotten her po litical grievances against her sister isle. The Irish papers speak kindly and ap preciatively of Edward VII. The mayors of such Nationalist strongholds as Dub lin and Limerick have sent messages of sympathy to the royal widow. Municipalities, churches and societies of all sorts have met to pass eulogies on the late monarch and offer good wishes to his successor. The courts and busi ness houses have been closed: sports and entertainments of every type have been dropped; society has cancelled its en gagements. The managers of most of the metropolitan theatres have decided to suspend the season until sfter the funeral. I The King's First Address. While; King George was, signing the proclamation of his accession in the presence of his Privy Councillors, who came in uniform and wearing brilliant decorations, in the mediaeval little St. James's Palace this afternoon, a battory in the adjoining park was firing sixty eight puns, denoting the age of his pred ecessor. The first official utterance Of the nfw King was marked by feeling: and eloquence, and made a deep impression. It follows: ; .. , , ■ ... ■. . My Lords and; Gentlemen ■ , ' ; ... : . : My heart is too full for me to address you "to-day in more than a few words. it is my sorrow fur duty to announce to you the death of my dearly loved father. the King. In this irreparable loss, which has so suddenly fallen upon me and the whole empire, I am comforted by the feeling that I have the sympathy of my future subjects who .will mourn with me for their beloved sovereign., whose own happiness was found in -sharing and pro moting theirs. I have lost not only a father's love, but the affectionate and in timate relations of. a dear friend and ad viser. - ...-.' • ■ ■'- •■• • No less confident am 1 in the universal and loving sympathy which is assured to my dearest mother in her overwhelming grief. - Standing here little more than nine years ago, our beloved King declared that so long as there was breath in his body he would work for the good and amelioration of his subjects. I am sure that the opinion of the whole nation will be that this declaration has been fully carried out. To endeavor to follow in his footsteps and at the same time to uphold the con stitutional government of these realms will be the earnest object of my life. I am deeply. sensible of. the very heavy re sponsibilities which have fallen upon me. I know that I can rely upon the Parlia ment and upon the people of these islands and my dominions beyond the seas for their help in the discharge of these arduous duties, and. their prayers that God will grant, me . strength and guidance. I am encouraged by ,the knowledge that I have in my dear wife one who will be a constant helpmate in every endeavor for our people's good. An immense but quiet multitude pressed about the palace for a sight of George V. who passed with little ap pearance of state. - He wore an admiral's uniform and was attended only by two officials from Marlborough House. He was greeted in silence and with boned heads as he went to the palace, only a stone's throw away, while his two sons watched! him from over the wall. The Lord Mayor of London, with the Sheriffs in state coaches and robes of office, imidc- a gaudy show, but Viscount Morley of Blackburn and ol.ier eminent Privy Councillors arrived in hansoms and pushed their way through the crowd. * r Scenes in th« Death Chamber. Edward VII still lies in the chamber where fee died. His features aro much more natural than if he had suffered from a long illness. The Queen Dowager Alexandra, King George and Queen Mary, with the two boy princes and other members of the royal family, visited the chamber this af t> moon. The palace attendants and servants were ad niitted afterward. The plans for th» funeral have not yet been deteriained, but the royal cere monial and public mourning will follow the same, procedure as when Queen Vic toria died. The court will move to Windsor Castle on Tuesday, and it is supposed that the funeral will be held there the body of the late King either resting in St. George'a chapel there, or in a mausoleum to be built in Frogmore, near that which Victoria erect*d for herself and consort. It was announced to-night that there would be no lying in state. More royal personage^ are expected to come to England for the funrrui than those who followed Victoria's hearse.
