J London, Juno 22 V.80 A. Jf. Jublleo morn-
mi hi has ilnn noil, not with cloudless sktcs. but
V warm and with fair hopes of " Queen's weather"
sftcrthosunlsnllttlohlgher. The streots, oven
It t tbls early hour, aro already nioro crowded
H thin Is usual at mtddar. Indeed, they have
H been thronged all night, for sororal hundreds of
H thnu-andg of people In London haro had no slcop
K durlntr the past night. This, howovor. Is not re
H rsrdcd as a hardship, for In most cbbo It was an
B expected Incident of the cclohratlon.
Bi At tho present moment long streams of
B vehicle aro slowly passing over tho routo that
Be will bo followed to-day by tho royal procession.
BJ Carts, cabs, and traps of ovory variety, rrowdod
Hi to the utmost with country poople, pass along.
Hi their occupants sturlog with admiring- eyes at
ssw toe necnnieions.
Hi The West Knd streets aro in possession of
Hi residents of the East End, who. In splto of tho
Hi fsct that they have not had a wink of sleep tho
H whole night through, maintain their proverbial
H cheerfulness. Oirls and men wearing each
Hj other's hats aro trooping through streets that
H ore little used to such visitors, while othors aro
H tnjorlng their peculiar vls-a-vls form of dance
B to the strains of mouth organs and concertinas.
H Uero and thero groups may be seen stretched
H (a apparent comfort on the sidewalks of tho
B itrccts just off tho main route, sleeping penco-
B fully, tho noise and confusion about them hav-
B s no effoct upon their slumber.
B Many people of tho hotter class aro already
B talking their way to tho points of vantage from
B Which they will view tho procession.
fl Altogether tho sight is a strange and unprece-
Pt flentedone,and from it It is now easy to calcu-
jjt Ute the vastness of the crowd which, later, will
B pack every foot of ground along tho routo tho
H Queen will traverse
V, The final rehearsal of the scrvieo that will
B take place to-day was held last evening outsldo
BJ 'Df St. .Paul's Cathedral. Tho cbolr and bands
B rendered the bymns that will be sung, and the
ami inrrniul iho nravcrs that will be used.
K An immense crowd was present. Bareheaded
B snd silent it stood, until tho last amen was ut-
B tervd. Then there was a murmur of applause
K for tho beautiful music.
H Suddenly some ono shouted " Tho Queen," and
H struck tho noto to which all those present were
B strung. From all directions could bo heard
H Toices calling for tho national anthem or cries
H of " Tho Queen. God bless her."
H Then a section of the crowd began singing
H "God Save the Queen." They lacked leadership
B until Dr. Martin, the choir conductor, signalled
H for tho choir to remain and motioned to the
H irowd for silence.
H When this was obtained the bands began plav-
H Ing tho anthem, the choir singing tho words.
H The hymn was taken up by tho whole crowd,
H and an Immense volume of sound rolled into the
Hj adjacent streets, where the throngs joined in the
Hj slnglnguntil tho thoroughfares reverberated llko
Hj tliundrr.
y .Vever was thero such a remarkably spontanc-
mt "sjs outburst of enthusiasm in London. N'um-
j bers of those present were genuinely overcome

B. The Queen, accompanied by Empress Fred-
B 'rick and Princesses Beatrico and Christian,
H srrlve.l at Paddlngton station from Windsor at
1 B, 12.30 P. M. The spontaneous veneration witti
' K which the Queen was treated as soon as she sot
H foot la London was most remarkable. When

H tered the crondod station at Paddlngton every
H head n as bared In ellenco for a moment, ami
r H then the cheering began and was kept up for
H several minutes.
H The Queen, upon alighting from tho train,
H walked slowly up a gently sloping trestle, lean-
B log with her right hand upon a solid walking
I H stick, which had bolonged to Charles I., and her
H left arm resting upon that of a lithe Indian scr-
; H Tat- This was the signal for another outburst
e( loud and long cheering. Then Princess
B Strife raised her mother's veil, disclosing the
JH imlling face of the sovereign.
I wj Uer Majesty was waited upon at the station
by the Paddlngton Vestry, who presented her
L B with an address of congratulation. When the
H Queen rcccUed the address Princess Christian
i, huded her Majesty's reply in manuscript to
H the Queen, wbopaseod itout to Vicar Abbott of
H Padillngton. Tho Queen did not speak herself,
Her Majesty's reply to tho address of the Vestry
j consisted of an expression of her thanks and
H rood wishes and references to charities In
which the lato Princo Consort took deep inter
HJ sit, and w hlch tho felt v, ore equally dear to her

Special Cable Deepateh to Tnx Sex.
MADniD, June 31. Bettor Bagasto, the leader
of the Liberal party, yesterday summoned the
Liberal ox-Ministers to ft conference, at whloh
the political situation was discussed. A mani
festo was drawn up which In substanco de
clared that tho Liberals would persist in ab
staining from having any rotations with tho
Government so long as tho Duko of Totuan,
Minister of Forolgn Affairs, remained In office.
The Duko of Tetuan, It will bo remembered,
rocently incurred tho hostility ot the Liberals
by boxing tho ears of Bcnator Comas tn the
lobby of the Cortes, since which incident thoy
have ref usod to tako part in tho legislative proceedings.
Tho manifesto further declares thnt tho
scheme of reforms advanced by Primo Minister
Canovas del Castillo is totally insufficient to
pacify Cuba, and that tho Llborals consider that
t'apt.-Gon. Wcyler must be recalled nnd a now
Governor appointed who will prosecute the war
in accordance with tho practices of civlllratlon
and stop tho rolgn of terror and tho devastation
of property which aro virtually delaying tho
pacification ot tho Island.
The Liberal party also considers that It is
necessary to appoint a royal commissary, who
must bo a civilian statesman, and who must bo
fully empowered to act apart from tho military
officers, to effect roforuis in Cuba promptly on
the widest basis of autonomy In political, ad
ministrative, economic, tariff, nnd legislative
matters compatible w 1th the retention of Spain's
sovereignty in Cuba.
The nianifosto expresses the intention of the
Liberals to go very far In tho sacrifice of Span
ish commercial Interests and In sharing tho
colonial war debts it by so doing pacification
can be speedily effected.

Madrid, June 21. Senor Castellano, Minis
ter of tho Colonies, complains that tho Cu
bans (meaning the sympathizers with Spain in
Cuba aro placing obstructions In the way of the
uoo of the paper currency In Cuba, desiring that
tho expensos of tho war shall fall solely upon
Spain. Ho says that he has received no definite
answer to his request that tho Cubun-Spanlsh
Junta submit a resolution that might end the
Sefior Castellano desired to arrango for the
gradual amortization ot the Cuban debt In threo
or four years, but the Cubans demanded the im
mediate withdrawal of the paper currency or Its
conversion into a sort of Bank of Spain notes,
which would be exchangnble for specie on de
mand. Sefior Castellano refused to accede to
this demand. He proposed a credit opera
tion of C20.000.000, gradually amortizable, with
a 5 per cent, ad valorem duty on merchandise,
and, if necessary, 15 per cant, on Indirect taxes
and bank reserves.
Tho Minister of the Colonies refutes the state
ment that the army in Cuba is paid in paper
money, which loses halt Its face value. He says
that only one-fourth of the pay of the soldiers
and sailors is made in paper. Regarding the
arrears in tho pay ot tho military and tho civil
service, Senor Castellano declares that tbo Jan
uary exponses will soon be paid.
