MORE SPLENDOR BUT LESS HEARTINESS. The Royal Ceremony Was Attended by Many Evidences of Man's Mortality in Perform ance of the Highest of Earthly Functions— The Skeleton at Every Feast Is Plainly Out lined— The Crown Almost Knocked to Floor by the Nervousness of the Archbishop of Canterbury—Placed on the Head Reversed —Archbishop Almost Overcome and King in Not Much Better Condition. A London dispatch to the Examiner, of the 9th, gives the generally unwrit ten portion of the great ceremony of coronation juet concluded. Here is its gist: King Edward VII. is a crowned monarch. At last his heart's desire has been gratified. A sigh of relief too deep for words went up from the hearts of his devoted people people as the cannon boomed the joyful tidings to the outside world. The King's punctuality and the per fectly ordered arrangements were all but set at naught by the physical feeble ness of the octogenarian, Archbishop of Canterbury, and Dr. Bradley, Dean of Westminster. Both of these eccle siastics were unequal to the trying strain of the ceremony, and the Dean nearly fainted before its close. The Archbishop of Canterbury, almost blind, had to be led around, and being unable to read he repeated the same prayers more than once. The actual crowning was marked by a misadventure well calculated to im press a superstitious man like the King. When Dean Bradley presented the crown on a cushion to the Arch bishop, the latter, unable to see it, groped about with his hands until they were directed by the Duke of Nor folk toward the crown, which he then almost knocked off its resting-place. The King gave a nervous start, but quickly regained his appearance of composure. Then the Archbishop grasped the crown in his trembling hands, and the King, seated at the time in King Edward's chair, leaned bis head forward to enable the Arch- I bishop to place the emblem of sover eignty upon it more easily, but the Archbishop extended his hands too far, so that the crown was behind the King's head. Instantly the King put his head back and into the crown, but discov ered that it was on wrong, being re versed, and in his desperation the King twisted it around with his left hand without Temoving it. This was a most trying momeat and when the King felt the crown se curely on bis head he leaned back on his throne, looking deadly pale and exhausted. It was a trying ordeal for the great audience, as well as for the King. The Archbishop twice came very near to complete collapse. A few minutes after the King had ascended the throne came the climax to his feebleness. He was kneeling to do the first homage of all the subjects of the King, when suddenly he almost fainted, and would have fallen upon his Sovereign's knees had not King Edward tenderly, but firmly, grasped both the prelate's hands and lifted bim to his feet. The Bishops of London, Winchester and Durham clasped their arms around the Archbishop of Canterbury, the King kissed his wrinkled hand, the Archbishop's bead fell back, bis feet moved slowly and mechanically, and thus he was more carried than led from the throne. One carious result of the Arch bishop's mishandling of the crown at the fateful moment was that the King was hailed with the cry, " God Save King Edward," before he was actually crowned. The Archbishop of York effected the Queen's coronation with proper des patch, but the remainder of the cere mony dragged, owing to the increas ing weakness of the Archbishop of Canterbury. The King suffered mentally and physically. The communion was greatly protracted. During it he had to kneel, and shifted uneasily on his knees, passed his hand repeatedly across his forehead, and betrayed many signs of impending faintness. Hap pily his pluck upheld him, but when at the close of the function he went into the Stuart Chapel for the final rites, he seized the opportunity to en ter the retiring room, where he re mained so long that most alarming rumors Hew about. He took nearly thirty minutes to recuperate, but even with the aid of stimulants his almost ghastly color as be passed down the nave and through the streets to Buckingham Palace was universally remarked. The ceremony instead of lasting only seventy-five five minutes had Occupied one hun dred and fifty, and only the King's courage saved it from a sensational I termination. "Hew to the Line, Let the Chips Fall "Where they May." If there was one impression that re mained stronger than another after watching the pageant outside the Ab bey, it was that there was more splen dor, more organization and less really heartfelt emotion among the crowd than was the case during the last reign. LAST OF THE WAR HUMORISTS. Some Men Who Have Left Their Mark Through Use of the Rapier of Satire. Robert Henry Newell, whose death was announced yeaterday, was the last of a group of newspaper men who, through their humorous or satirical writiings, climbed rapidly into popu larity during the civil war. Charles F. Browne, employed as a reporter on the Cleveland Plain Dealer, came before the public as Artemus Ward, showman, and said his say in a light aud airy way on nearly every subject discussed in the newspapers of the day. David R. Locke, the editor of * coun try weekly in Ohio, struck the popu lar fancy in a sejies of letters on war questions, signed Petroleum V. Nasby. lienry W. Shaw put his quaint say ings into awkward spelling and be came a favorite as Josh Billings. Robert C. Newell touched on the politics of the time in a aeries of let ters signed Orpheus C. Kerr (office seeker). AIL of the group, except Mr. Newell, indulged in the eccentricities of awkward spelling. Mr. Browne and Mr. Shaw held aloof from political controversy in so far as was possible in a period of great ex citement. But Mr. Locke and Mr- Newell were always in the thick of a political fight. Both of thep saw the seamy side of politics and each was merciless in his way. Probably no po litical writings of the war era had so wide a circulation as the Nasby letters, and the letters of Mr. Newell were so popular that they went into book form at the close of the war. The work of such men had the greater influence because on its face it was addressed to a non-political audi ence. It came in a form to attract the attention of young men who cared lit tle for politics, but who, after reading the letters for the humor or satire, were undoubtedly influenced to take active interest in political affairs. It was often said to and of both men that their writings could not be of permanent popularity because of their political bias. But at the time the political coloring gave them popu larity. Of the group, Artemus Ward played the comedian and Josh Billings the philosopher, while Nasby struck with a rapier and Newell charged with a lance. Artemus Ward died at the height of his popularity in 1867; Josh Billings died in 1885, Nasby in 1888, and Newell, youngest of the group, last year. HOBSON AND THE BARBER. DDcoum of the Man With the Razor to the Unknown Customer. Ottowa Herald. When Captain Hobson was at the Chautauqua assembly, be entered a barber shop where be was not known. He had got into a chair and the bar ber commenced to discourse : " Of course it was a nery thing to do, and Hobaon did it well enough, but that little trick at Santiago Bay turned oat to be boy's play. And then that kissing business—say, if that would't make a man sick. Any time I pay good money to see a man it'll have to be somebody 'at ain't made such a ring streaked and striped fool of—" Just then a man came in and asked: " Is Hobaon here ?" " Not so you can notice it," said the barber. " Over at the Marsh House they told me he had come over here to get shaved," persisted the men. Then a great light broke into the mind of the barber. His knees felt wabbly, and he looked a trifle pale, but screwing up his courage he grasped the hair of the man in the chair and turning his head looked into his perfectly demure countenance. " Are you HobsonT" he asked. " Yes," came the reply in that deep full voice that belongs to the hero of the Verrimac. " I'm Hobson." The shave was finished in a silence so intense that the waving of the mid day heat made a strange, whistling roar outside. OHIO State Journal: " But, father," replied the erring son " You know every young fellow has to sow his wild oats." " Yes," answered the father, " but you ought to know when you have a big enough crop in." KANSAS City Journal: One evening at dinner Ida was asked if she would have some squash. She answered," No." " No what?" asked the father. " No squash," answered Ida. OLYMPIA, WASHINGTON: FRIDAY EVENING, AUG. 22, 1902. SLEEPING BY MACHINERY. Clockwork Devices to Take the Place of Harm The wear and tear of modern life make sleep more difficult to woo every year. The want has brought the sup ply, and a number of Bleep machines are on the market. The most complicated of these mechanical sleep-producers is the " vibrating coronet," just invented by Dr. Gaiffe of Paris. It consists of three bands of metal encircling the head. A branch strip extends to either of the eyelids, and, by aid of a spring, gently vibrates against it. This is used to induce sleep by the celebrated Dr. Bertillon of Paris. Sov eral other devices now on the market are known as " alouettes." One of theso, made by M. Mathieu, of Paris, has done its work already in the clinics of Europe. It is a compact mahogany box, five inches high, four inches wide and three and a half inches deep, from the top of which projects a pivot penetrating the centers of two horizontal, rectangular panels of ebony, eight inches long and one inch high. Inside the box is clockwork, which causes a series of ebony panels to re volve. Each is studded on both sides by a horizontal row of bright circular mirrors, the aise of a ahilling, and maintains a velocity of one revolution a second. To induce sleep by aid of this mechanism, the room is darkened and bright rays of light from a lamp or gas jet are reflected from the mirrors. The patient, by concentrating his gaze upon the revolving panels, soon becomes fascinated by the vibrating glitter. The monotony of the stimulus soon fatigues the eyes, which uncon sciously close in sleep. The " fascinator" is quite a different sleep producer. It is manufactured by Mr. Verdin, an instrument maker of Faris, and is used with success in the celebrated Hospital Salpetriere of the French capital. It is a hclmit similar to that of the vibrating coro net. When adjusted to the head it is lied by two straps. A plate of steel, four inches wide by one inch high, rests horizontally across the forehead, and from the center of the metallic strip protrudes a small tube of steel, into whose end may be inserted a very flexible wire tipped with a glistening silver-plated ball alwut the size of a grape. By properly beuding the wire the ball may be fixed at any desired sngle above and very near the eyes, and the effect is the same aa that of the glit tering mirrors. The phenomenon o[ eye fatigue is experienced by many who cannot long observe the rapidly shifting panorama of scenery moving before a railway window without falling to sleep before their journey's end. The breeses from an electric fan, if directed against the eyelids, have this same soothing effect. Mrs. Elizabeth Cady Stanton called the first Woman's Rights Convention at Seneca Falls, N. Y., in 1848. She is now 87 years old, and lives in New York city—a fine, stately old lady, her mind still vigorous and busy, and she writes much on the various questions of the day. Susan B. Anthony, at 82, is still a lion, showing no diminution of physi cal or mental vigor. She delivered ber first public address at Cana Jo harie, N. Y., in 1849. She was ther a school teacher, and society was won derfully shocked that a woman should dare speak in public. Miss Anthony has a comfortable home in Rochester, N. Y., and an income sufficient for her need. Isabella Beecber Hooker Uvea in Hartford, Conn. Her firat Woman's Rights address was delivered in 1869, at a meeting in Newport, R. I. She is a widow, and is 80 years old. She is the last surviving member of the origi nal Beecher family. . Lucy Stone Blackwell is dead, and her husband and daughter still con tinue the publication of the Woman't Journal, a paper founded by her. Julia Ward Howe, author of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic," lives in Boston, Mass., is 83 years old, and is still active in writing and speaking. Mary A. Livermore, the famous lec turer, lives at Melrose, Mass. At 81 years of age she is still active in the affairs of her busy world. Rev. Antoinette Brown Blackwell was the first woman preacher, and was ordained in 1853. She lives in New York city, is 79 years old, and is still seen and heard in public. Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell, sister of the husband of Rev. Antoinette Black well, was the first woman physician. She still lives, in retirement now, hon ored and respected at the age of 81 by all who know her. ful Drugs. London Hall. SOME NOTED WOMEN. Belva Lockwood was the first woman lawyer, and is still vigorous ami active, Clara Barton was the first American Red Cross nurse, and i 9 now the Na tional Red Cross President at Wash ington, D. C . Anna Dickinson was the pioneer woman orator, or political campaign speaker. She began in Lincoln's sec ond campaign, in 1864, at the age of 18 years, full of fire and spirit. She is now in retirement and' 1 is beard no more in public. GROWTH OF THE SCHOONER. She Has Fought Her Way on Merit to a Perma nent Position as a Sailing Vessel. The Boston Herald has taken the recent launching of seven-masted schooner Thomas W. Lawson, which has a cargo capacity of 8,000 tons and is the first steel schooner ever built in America, as an occasion to trace the development of the schooner in this country since the first one was built. That event took place in 1714 at Glou cester, Mass, where Capt. Andrew Robinson built the first two-masted fore-and-aft vessel ever constructed in the world. In this connection it is said that the builder was very much perplexed as to a proper designation of the new type. But on the day of the launching a bystander remarked as she slid into the water: " How she schoons!" and the builder, who over heard the remark, replied: "If she schoons, she must be a schooner." Whether this tale is properly authen ticated does not appear, but it is cer tain that the nante has been used to designate the type of vessel almost from the first. The next step in advance was not taken until 1849, when the first three masted schooner was built with a reg ister of 250 tons and a cargo capacity of 375 tons. In 1866, 456 tons register was reached in schooner construction, and in 1880 the first four-masted schooner was built. Her register was 995 gross tons, and it was uot till 1882 sbat the 1,000-ton mark was passed. In 1888 another mast made its appear ance and the registered tonnage 1,778. It was only in 1900 that the first six-master appeared, the regis tered tonnage reaching 2,970 tons. It appears from this record that while untutored opinion has consid ered the sailing vessel doomed to ex termination, it has been undergoing the most rapid development in its his tory, multiplying its net tonnage by three and more than doubling the number of its masts. Moreover, the new seven-master, by the use of ma chinery to operate the sails, is to be operated with a crew of sixteen men, a much smaller number than would be required to run a steam vessel of like size. For non-perishable merchandise such a vessel, through its saving in fuel and wages, oilers opportunities for economical transportation that ought to give it plenty of business and leave it a considerable margin of profit be sides. As long as any type of vessel can save money for the shipper and earn it for the ship owner it is in no danger of extinction. It Doss Not Psy. Charles M. Schwab, President of the Steel Trust, is practically broken down at the age of 41. A. M. Roth schild, a Chicago merchant prince who within eight years built up a colossal fortune, is dead by his own hand as the result of a mania brought on by business cares. John D. Rocke feller is so nervous that the slightest shock is liable to stop the action of tho heart, and J. Pierpont Morgan is, it is said, on the verge of collapse be cause of the strain under which he has. been working. It is wonderful in considering these things, if it pays to live at such tre mendous pressure. Is there sufficient gratification in the quest of money to compensate for the loss of health, the loss of all power to enjoy the sweets of life, the loss of life itself? Judging from numerous examples, it would seem that this question must be an swered in the affirmative. It may be that the sting of the money serpent is fatal to the high ambitions and noble ideafaof living; it is possible that its power would in the same way mani fest itself upon us all were we to be come beneath its influence. Fortunately there is absolutely no chance that more than a very few of us will ever be placed where the ex periment may be tried. The "com mon people" will live, happy and con tented, on in to old age, while money grabbers finish their courses prema turely, either by killing themselves or in paying the penalty exacted by out raged nature. The greed for gold does not pay. " DID you show Casey, the contrac tor, the Wash'nt'n monnymint?" at ked Mr. Rafferty. " I did," an swered Mr. Dalon, " an* he wor deeply impressed." " What did he sayt" " He said it wor the tallest one-story buildin' he iver saw!" NOBODY TRUSTS A TRAITOR. It Would Be a Very Poor Policy to Pay a Premium to Treachery. Detroit Tribune. Ex-Senator Hill and the others who arc preaching harmony and asking why the opposing elements of the Democracy should not come together again to offer effective opposition to evil tendencies which have rapidly developed in the Republican party since it lacked the splendid restraint of an alert and aggressive foe, can hardly be BO ignorant as they wish to appear. If they are really unable to see why the men, who have stuck to the Democratic party throughout' since '96, cannot be induced to join hands with those who are only now seeking the way back to it, and, par ticularly, why they will not accept the latter as leaders and prophets, it must be that they never heard the story of Tom and John and the big Jones boy. Tom and John were 11 and 12 years old, respectively, Tie Jones boy was 16, and " big for bis age." Also, he was a bully. The younger lads suf fered much from his tyrannies and brutalities. Finally, strung to des peration, they planned to unite against the common enemy. They agreed to go together and pick a fight with Jones. When he was ready for busi ness, Tom was to make a frontal at tack, while John was to make a flank movement. It was no great trouble to And the big fellow. It was much less to incite him to proper degree of rage. True to the terms of the offensive alliance Tom made a rush for Jones or rather met Jones' punitive expedition with out flinching, but John, without giv ing notice of reconsideration, fled in continently to a eafe distance, and from the vantage of the fence viewed the unequal conflict. When Tom was allowed to get up, brush the dust from his clothes and wipe the blood aud tears from his somwhat disfigured countenance, he had forgotten all about bis grievance again Jones. He was filled with and dominated by only one idea, which was to catch and whale the cowardly and treacherous deserter, which he proceeded to do. But even that exhiliaraling exercise could never appease his wrath. He was able to forgive Jones, who had thumped him, but not John, who had betrayed him. He never trusted John again. Indeed he could never see him without experiencing a rising anger. This is the principal reason why no welcome is being extended to the re turning prodigals, who arrogantly in sist that they are the injured parents standing ready to fall on the necks of the repentent eons who went astray. That is why Mr. Bryan replies so bitterly to the presumptuous speech of Cleveland, and why, in so replying, he comes nearer to rehabilitating him self in the estimation of his party, at large,'than he has come since it was made apparent that bis idea of re storing the powers of government to the people was dwarfed and narrowed by the monomania of a single issue that had ceased to be pressing or timoly. The Democrats who stood by the party will never forget that they would have carried the day in 1896 if the Clevelands, the Dave Hills, the Whit neys, and all the other so-called gold Democrats had not flunked. ITEMS OF INTEREST. Many severe cases of burns from celluloid have been reported. The demand for American goods is increasing tbrougout Canada. Every one of the large automobile factories is far behind its orders. A Londoner has perfected a method of manufacturing paper stockings. Methodism has gained in New York city nearly 47 per cent, since 1875. Lord Acton, who died recently in London, had the finest private library in England, consisting of over 60,000 volumes. Thirty thousand dollars was paid recently for a bronze statue of Her cules at the concluding sale of the Bardini collection in London. The The total amount realized by the en sire collection was 9228,640. The pension roll resulting from the Civil war has passed all previous rec ords and established a new high water mark. On July 1 last there were 999,- 446 pensioners. This is an increase of 7,927 since 1899, when the figure of 991,519 was reached. This last Con gress passed 12,000 special pension bills.

OPPOSES COMMISSION. Gov. Mcbride Distinctly Lowers His High Office by Proposed Partisan Methods. E. Meeker, of Puyallup, in a letter opposing Governor Mcßride's policy, says: Governor Mcßride has recently been reported as saying that " if it should be necessary I shall myself go on the floor of the (State Republican) Con vention and present what I feel to be the cause of the people," i. e., make a plea for more power to be placed in his hands. Now, to me this stems, to say the least, to be in bad taste, and distinctly lowers the dignity of the great office which lie holds or that of his own person. I have great respect for Gov ernor Mcßride and am in thorough accord with him in the fight against the " merger" and in that believe he is eternally right, but when he steps aside to personally fight in county and State conventions to the end that as Governor he may have more power granted him, then I say it is time to '-speak out in meeting" and put on the brakes. Governor Mcßride is further re ported as saying thai a legislature at tempting to handle the question of railroad control " would be so subject to the arts and influences of the rail road lobby that a wise and fortunate result could hardly be expected from it." Pray, how can Governor Mcßride expect to have an immaculate three that will not bs subjected " to the arts and influences of the railroad lobby" if he cannot trust the legisla ture of twenty times the number com ing directly from and responsible to the voters of the State? I am not one that believes in the atrocious doctrine that " every man has his price" and that the morals of public men have fallen so low that we cannot trust our representatives in the legis lature assembled. If this is the state of affairs, we have come to a pretty pass, indeed, but how much would we mend the matter by making it easier for the railroad interest to pur chase three men instead ot sixty or rather a majority in either case? I b lieve a large majority of men are honest, but from the Governor's standpoint we would be "jumping from the frying pan into the fire" to lodge the great power of the con trol of the railroads with three men instead of sixty. For my part, 1 believe there i abundant experience to justify Ibis opposition to a railroad commission Our sister Pacific States bave tried it and will bave none of it more. Take Oregon, for example. There the commissiou become a " roaring farce." Take California, has it not been a stench in the nostrils of the decent people? I say let us bave none of it; let our legislature pass laws that may be necessary to regulate traffic, restrain from exorbitant charges and equalize assessments and then trust to our courts to enforce the law. II we cannot trust our courts, whom then, can we trnst? A Little Fable. While walking down a public high way an Humble Citizen was set upon by a band of Arrogant Trusts, severely beaten and all of his personal effects divorced from bis pockets. " Why am I thus beateu and robbed?" wailed the Humble Citizen. " What have I done to deserve this treatment?" But the Arrogant Trusts were so busy dividing the swag that they did □ot deign to make reply. " Have I not always defended you against unjust attacks? Have I not insisted that you were the natural re sult of industrial evolution? Have I not always voted in your interests and yielded to no man in my defense of he system whereby you have waxed fat?" But the Arrogant Trusts had not yet completed the division of the swag and replied by Haughty Silence. "I insist," continued the Humble Citizen, " that I am not deserving of this treatment." " 0, come off!" ejaculated one of the Arrongant Trusts, growing injpatient at the importunities of the Humble Citizen. " You've been such an easy mark all these years that you've no right to make a Holler at this Stage of the Game." Mornl: It's your own fault. ABOUT ten years ago Mr. Bryan introduced in Congress a bill to put trust-made articlee on the free list. It must be very gratifying to him to have the idea indorsed by the lowa Republicans.
