among the moderate men in favor of
shelving tie whole question until next

debates, and' doubtless is thoroughly

tion. In any case, it is expected that
the Parliamentary recess will be ex
tended until the middle of June.

Proclamation of the Heralds.
Sharply at the etroke of 9 this corn-
Ing four heralds arrayed in medis&val
uniforms of scarlet, heavily braided with
gold, mounted the balcony of Friary
Court, at St. James's Palace, where
Queen Victoria presented herself to the
people on the opening of her memorable
reign, and blew a fanfare through their
long silver trumpets.
The precincts of the palace by this
time were crowded with a great mass
of people, many of whom could obtain
only a glimpse of the proceedings. The
balconies and roofs of the ancient palace,
which had been draped with red cloth.
were reserved for notable persons, all of
whom were in the deepesi mourning.
Members of tlie royal household, th«
ministers, their wives, and high officers
of state, all in brilliant uniforms, were
gathered around the court. General Sir
John D. P. French, with the headquar
ters staff, stood surrounded by a troop
of Horse Guards in their red tunics and
breastplates of polished stee!
From the windows of Marlborough
House, immediately opposite, the Duke
of Cornwall, the young heir to the
throne, the younger princes and Princess
Mary watched the ceremony
The heralds having' concluded their
duties, the officers at arms, chief of
whom is the Duke or Norfolk, the
hereditary Earl Marshal and Chief But
ler of England, took their places on the
balcony, forming the great heraldic com
pany. None wore mourning, this having
been removed for the occasion. Sir Al
fred Scott Scott-Gatty, Garter Principal
King-at-Arros, with the Duke of Nor
folk and two officers bearing the staves
of office, stepped to the front of the bal
cony, and, in a voice which couid be
heard across the court and in the
streets adjoining, read the proclamation,
while great throngs stood uncovered in
a drizzling rain. The duke and Sir Al
fred then called for three cheers for
the King, and the people responded with.
almost deafening hurrahs, which were
silenced only by the reappearance of the
heralds, who sounded another fanfare.
The last note hardly had died away
when the band of the Coldstream
Guards, which had "taken up a position
in tie square, struck up "God Save the
King." The young princes from their
point of vantage in the windows of
M&rlboxough House stood with their
hands at salute and the officers and
troops stood at attention.
Guns Boom Salute, People Sing.
As the national anthem was concluded
the first gun of the battery in St. James's
Park belched forth a royal salute, and
the people in the square and streets at
fhe same moment took up the refrain of
"God Save the King." This was prob
ably the most impressive part of the
ceremony, the fervent singing of the
crowds, which first reached those in the
balcony as a hum. growing in volume
as more and more singers joined in, while
at minute intervals the guns half
drowned the chorus. Meanwhile the
royal standard had been hoisted over
Marlborough House, indicating that the
King was in the royal residence, and
flags on the public offices throughout
the city were raised to the mastheads.
""he royal standard on Buckingham
Palace alone remained at half mast.
The Duke of Norfolk and Sir Alfred
Scott Scdtt-Gatty. the officers "i state
and others of the company in Friary
Court remained in their places until the
people turned toward Maryborough
House and renewed their cheers for the
King, a glimpse of whom was caught
as he stood at the window with Queen
Mary at his side. A moment later his
majesty lowered the blind.
Besides the heraldic ofScers. the mem
bers of the Cabinet, who had hurriedly
returned from their holidays abroad;
diplomats, including the American Am
bassador, Whitelaw Reid, ajid the em
bassy staff, and others, including J. Pier
pont Morgan, watched the proceedings
from the balcony The officials of the
new King's household. Lords Rosebery,
Crewe and Mortey and a few others, at
the invitation of King George, witnessed
the ceremony from Marlborough House,
a scaffolding having been erected behind
the wall which shuts out a view of the
grounds from the street which separates
St. James's Palace and the residence
which the King occupied while he was
the Prince of "Wales.
Heralds Enter the City.
The popular demonstration at an end,
the Earl Marshal and his attendants
proceeded to the Ambassador's Court,
whence they drove to Charing Cross and
thence to the City of London to read the
proclamation to the people at the desig
nated points. The route to the City was
lined with seven thousand troops, while
at the places at which the procession
stopped and repeated the 'teremony
troops and Horse Guards were stationed
The royal carriages of the Duke of Nor
folk. Sir Alfred Scott Scott-Gatty and
the officers of arms, followed by Genera!
French, -with the headquarters staff and
a troop of cavalry, drove briskly from
St. James's Palace to Charing Cross
Thousands who had waited since early
morning silently watched the procession.
At Charing Cross there was such a crush
that the police and troops had great dif
ficulty in keeping a space clear for the
heralds. The royal announcers again blew
a fanfare and Sir Alfred once more read
the proclamation Again the people sang
the national anthem, their voices being
accompanied by' the music of military
Along the Strand the precession con
tinued through lines of troops and
crowds of people to Temple Ear, at the
boundary of the City, where the Lord
Mayor, the sheriffs, aldermen and offi
cers of the City of Ixindon. all in their
robes of office, awaited the coming of the
Earl Marshal
Welcomed by Lord Mayor.
The ceremony here was of longer dura
tion and more elaborate, the City of
London to this day retaining its ancient
privilege of barring the entrance of the
King's men within the square mile in
which its officers rule. In place of the
barred gates of olden times a red silken
rope placed across the street halted the
procession. Coming to a standstill, the
trumpeters sounded three loud blasts,
announcing the approach of the of
ncer at arans. The city marshal, riding
forward, challenged the approach of
the procession with the cry: Halt!
Who goes there?"
The reply. "The officer of arms, who
demands entrance to the city A to pro
claim his royal majesty's accession."
came from ihe pursuivant.
The Lord Ma/or, having been in
formed of the presence of the royal
herald and having given his permission
for entrance to the City, Rouge Dragon
stepped across the boundary and hand
ed the chief magistrate the Privy Coun
cil's order that the proclamation be
made The throng which crowded the
narrow street stood in silence watching
the proceedings
The Lord Mayor then alighted from
his carriage and read the proclamation,
and declared that "Our high and mighty
Genius has been defined as
"capacity for taking infinite pains"
„ , „ constitute the genius
of a vintage of cigarette perfection
Prince George has now become our only
lawful and righteous liege lord, George
V.." following these words with the
cry. "God Save the King'" The words
were caught up by the crowd and
swelled to a mighty chorus, which filled
the Strand and Fleet street
The ceremony was repeated at Chan
cery Lane, and thence the Lord Mayor,
with his majesty's heralds, moved
through streets lined by double files
of troops — the Norfolk and Leicester
regiments, the King's Own Yorkshires.
the Scots Guards, the Cameronians and
Irish Fusiliers— toward the centre of the
city. Great crowds watched the pas
sage of the historic pageant through the
heart of the city. The great area about
the Bank of England and the Mansion
House was filled with a surging mass of
humanity. The people, who had been
waiting hours for the final ceremony,
applauded heartily the approach of the
heralds and city officials.
When the heralds had taken their sta
tion on the steps of the Royal Exchange
and silence had been obtained the proc
lamation ■was read to the multitude,
from which rose thunderous cheers and
cries of God save the King'" The
bands played the national anthem once
Entertainment at Mansion House.
The heralds then proceeded to the
Mansion House, where they were enter
tained by the Lord Mayor, who, accord
ing to ancient custom, first officially
proposed the health of the new King.
The troops were then withdrawn, but
the masses ■were reluctant to leave, and i
thousands of persons remained in the
vicinity of the Mansion House, frequent- j
ly calling for cheers for the King and
the Queen, the Duke of Cornwall and
i others of the royal family-
Similar scenes, though marked with j
less ornate pageantry, were witnessed la
the other principal cities throughout the
kingdom, where the proclamation was
read simultaneously with the reading in

P>-'ces Rise on Stock Exchange
The singing of the national anthem
marked the reopening of the Stock Ex
change to-day, the members of which
forthwith began with a determination to
discountenance any bear attacks. In
fluential support was at hand to offset
any adverse sentimental effect following
King Edward's death, and the tone was
steady from the start, with a hardening
of price? This was notable with con
sols, which started ?fe higher and im
proved to 81%. Home rails gained from

Kaffirs hardening in sympathy

Stockholm. May 9— Mr. Roos#velt left for

holds to his original intention to attend a
private luncheon with the Emperor and
Empress at Potsdam to-morrow, and ex

London. May 9. — If Mr. Roosevelt adheres
to his travelling programme he will arrive
In London on May 16. The decision to hold
King Edward's funeral on May 20 will,
however, preclude the possibility of the for

for a postponement of the lecture until afwr

If Mr. Roosevelt is In London on th« day

as to what his status would be on that oc

certainly expect him to have a place among:
