Absence of Any Preparations for
Germany on August 0 Is .Re

Premier's Guarded Reply in Com
mons to Question Concerning
General Holiday Also
Arouses Pessimism.
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.

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
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.

Retreat of Venezuelan President

WHIerastadt. Island of Curacoa, July 25.
President Castro of Venezuela has returned
to Caracas from Barcelona, owing to the
Imiiosslbllity for hlra with his array of 3.C0O
men to attack the revolutionists waiting
for him Intrenched at Aragua, capital of the
State of Guzman Blanco.
He departed without firing a single shot,
notwithstanding his proclamation in which
he said he would fight one against ten.
The moral effect produced by his retreat
is disastrous for the Government end
gives nn Idea of the strangest of revolu
tions, which latterly has spread toward
the center of Venezuela.
The revolutionists are at Chaguaramas, on
their way to Orituco. sixty miles from Ca
racas. Pres'dent Castro's new plan Is to attack
the revolutionists near Valencia, where
they arc assembling from all directions.
General Rlera with 13M men being on the
way there from Corro.
General Solagnle. with 7,000 men. Is
marching to the rendezvous from San

bound there from RarqulslraMo, and Gen

companied by General Mnnagas and large
forces of revolutionists. Is also headed for
that vicinity.
The Government of President Castro can
not hold out much longer. Funds are
needed badly. Trains on the Caracas Rail
road are being held up dally by the revo
lutionists. GIRL DIED RATHER

Yesterday afternoon Austell called for

Secretary Wilson admitted to-day that the

Father's Wedding Gift Was Check
for $.-100,000.
Newport. R, I.. July 2i The wedding of
Miss Sarah Van Alen. youngest daughter
of James J. Van Alen. to Robert J. Collier,
son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter F. Collier of New
York, took place this morning. Tho mar
riage ceremony wns performed at Wake
hurst, the home of the bride's father. In
the presence of the immediate Van Alen
family only. The knot was tied by tho
Reverend William B. Meenan. rector of St,
Mary's Roman Catholic Church, nssbtcd
by the Right Reverend F. X. Byrnes of
Nashville. Tenn.
Following the house ceremony a high
nuptial mass nt St. Mary's Church was cel
ebrated by Bishop Byrnes and assistants.
Neither Mr. Van Alen nor Mrs. Wm, Astor,
the grandmother ot the bride, was at the
church, from which It Is Inferred that the
bride's father would not sanction a Cath
olic church wedding, and from the fact that
Mr. P. F. CollIr was) not at the house it
Is Inferred that Mr. Van Alen was not .n
sympathy with the wedding, but could not
prevent It, as his daughter was of age.
The guests at the church, besides the
wedding part-. Included Mrs. Stuyvcsont
Fl3h. Harry Lehr. Mrs.'Adolph Ladcnburg
and Miss Rives. Following the mass the
bride and bridegroom were driven to Wake
hurst and thence to tho New York Yacht
Club station, where they boarded the yacht
Rahada. They will pass their honeymoon

his daughter as a wedding present a check
for K09.000 and that Mrs, William Astor
gave the bride a valuable diamond brooch.
Miss Van Alen became of age on July i
and Inherited a large estate, mostly per
