KING MAY SUFFER A RELAPSE. It Is Pointed Out That No One Has Seen Him but the Members of the Royal Family and His Physicians. NOT YET ABLE TO SIT UP. Premier's Guarded Reply in Com mons to Question Concerning General Holiday Also Arouses Pessimism. SPECIAL RV CABLB TO THE XEW YORK HERALD AND THE ST. LOUIS REPUBLIC. London, July 2i Copyright. 1902.) "Will there be a coronation on August 3. as an nounced officially, or will there be an other postponement? There Is no gainsay ing the fact that general feeling In the mat ter is very pessimistic. It is true the doctors reports about the King's progress are very Satisfactory. The complete rest his Majesty Is now en Joying on board the royal yacht Is proving of great service to his physique. But. apart from what is allowed to be made public officially, not a whisper is heard from anybody who has seen the King. Nobody on the yachts cruising on the Solent ever gets the merest glimpse of thi JCinSr' ho ,s hidJon lhlnd an awning, while pleasure craft must steer a consider able distance away from the royal yacht. Fear of n Relapse. The fear that there may be no corona tion on the date Hied is intensified by the manner in which preparations are being carried on. or. rather, by the lack of .prep aration. Those who have duties allotted to them in connection with the ceremonv have been summoned to rehearsals only two days before the date fixed, which Is taken to indicate that, if need be. the event en again be postponed at the last moment. Even with all their favorable bulletin the doctors have still some fears of a re lapse, necessitating another postponement It must be remembered that the King 1 not yet able to get up from a recumbent position, for a story that he had been al lowed to take a short walk on deck one aft ernoon was promptly and officiallv denied In fart, on the day on which his Majestv was upiKsed to have taken a walk he never rame on deck at all. owing to the nasty weather. He Is not able, or Is r.ot permitted, to move without being helped and people are shaking their heads doubt fully. o roller Regulations Yet. Then, again, as to the outward prepara tions being so far behind, no police regu lations have yet been published, which Is considered very strange, as the event Is only a fortnight o.T. Furthermore, the Prime Ministers' an swer to a question in the House of Com mons whether August 9 is to be a bank holiday, has not served to lessen public pessimism. The result of such inquiries as the Government has been able to make in this matter, he said, tends to show that the balance of public opinion is in the direction of turning the customary half-holiday of Saturday Into a bank holiday on the occa sion of the coronation. Why did Mr. Balfour use such curlouslv halting phrases as "tends to show that the balance or public opinion is In the direction of turning." etc.. in obscure reply to a df. rect question whether the day is to do made a general holiday or not. This reply seems to have had a rather Irritating r fect on the public mind because It Is thought that If the coronation has been definitely fixed, as has been announced. It is now time in Justice to the public that these matters rtiould be finally settled. Stand Sen for Sale Cheap. Whether there Is to be a coronation or not. It Is falling very fiat indeed. The elab orate decorations cf some of the big man sions In the West End haie been carefully preserved for the restoration of coronation day. but there will be Htle or no street decoration. For Instance. St. James slieet. which presented such a magnificent spec tacle on June 26, Is not. I understand, to be decorated at alL Seats on the stands alongside Westminster Abbey, which had been disposed of for as high as 25 guineas (030), and the money re turned, are now offered for use on August 9 for from 1 to S guineas (J5.23 to HI). So far. it is believed, there are very few takers. The shock of the King's serious illness came so suddenly that people have not yet had timo to regain heart. The fnmira vis itors have all gone away and the hotels ars half empty. Indeed, the hotel manufactur ers are anxious to let it be known generally that there Is no Increase In prices.

FLOODS RAGING ALL OVER TEXAS Torrential Downpour Covers Two Thirds of the State Traffic Paralyzed. COTTON CROP BADLY DAMAGED. It Is Estimated that Loss on This Alone Will Reach the Sum of Three Million Dollars. REPrilLIC SPECIAL. Dallas. Tex.. Julv 26. There. is no Im provement In the Rood and railroad situa tion In Texas. If anything, the situation Is worse than It was last night. Rain con tinued to fall last night and to-dny over two-thirds of the State. Great freshets prevail in the Pecos, the Colorado, the Brazos and the Trinity rivers and their tributaries. The d.imace to railroads will reach Into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Many miles of track must be re built, many mere miles nre under water, scores of washouts have occurred and numerous Iron bridges washed away. Daniel Co;rsdell. a banker of Granbury, In Hood County, gives it as his opinion that the damage to the cotton crop of the Lower Brazos Valley will reach from tZOW.COO to J3.CkJ.fti No through train have reached Dallaj to-day from the West on the Texas and Pacific, and none from the South on the Missouri. Kansas and Texas, the Cotton Belt or the Gulf. Colorado and Santa Fe. The Santa Fe has fost a bridge and LOcO feet of track between Clifton and Valley Mills. The Missouri. Kansas and Texas has several washouts and a bridge gone at the Cotton Belt crossing near Hlllsboro. It Is feared that the big dam near Hllls boro will break and cause disaster. The Texas a.nd Pacific reports that the rain Ust night on its line as far west as Balrd was territlc It Is not known what the condi tion Is around Big Springs, because th town is isolated, tracks under water, wires down and many washouts to be rcpnl-ej. The road hopes to get Into Colorado City with relief trains some time to-morrow, but does not expect to get Into Big Springs be fore Monday. Waterbound naisensers, as fast as they are reached, are being transferred by boats. One btidge near Pecos has been replaced four times' since last Sunday and as often swept away. Several washouts and brldgi have been repaired and made to hold near Thurber. Gordon and Balrd. Through trains from the east to EI Paso are not expected to run regularly till near the end of next week. A strange feature of the flood is the fact that at what Is known as the Dlvld-. nt Willis Point, on the Texas and Pacific, seventy-five miles east of Dallas, no rain has fallen for ten months. In the last week It has rained all around that spot, but not a drop has fallen there. The rains have fallen from one end of the State to the other and the operating depart ments ot all roads are uneasy on account of the liability of any and all streams to get on a rampage. Reports from Graham. In the Panhandle, say the Brazos is much higher than dur ing the famous rise in 1S76 and that peo ple down the river may look out for a big flood. A Waco bulletin said the Brazos had risen thirty-five feet there and the water was five feet deep In the streets of Hast Waco. There are washouts on the Texas Central line In the Bosque Valley, and trains are running no further west than Whltnsy. Two bridges over Steele Creek are gone. The Cotton Belt Is cut off from Gatesville by a washout at Iyon River. It is feared the I.eon bridge will go. OFFER CITY FREE LIBRARY. Mr. and Mrs. Honck Make Liberal Proposition to Cape Girardeau.
