THE WAfcHJiWi'OiV TIMES, THUKSDAY, JULY 13, 1911.
7 PRINCE OF WALES IS AT GREAT INVEST CASTLE SPECTACLE JGeorge's Son Greeted by Enthusiastic Throng as He Dons Royal Robes. CARNARVON, "Wales, July 13. The Jnvesture of the Prince of Wales by King: George, according- to the stately ritual prescribed centuries ago. In the 'Great Court of Carnarvon Castle, to day was a wonderful spectacle, as Im pressive as It was picturesque. The ceremony was the biggest thing that Wales has known for centuries. Everything pertaining to the lnvesture was distinctly Welsh. Welsh music, "Welsh drama, Welsh costumes, and Welsh genius were consplclous factors In the spectacle. Never within the memory of living man has anything eo aroused the national patriotism of the Welsh people. The genuine en thusiasm with which the masses greet ed their majesties, the fervor wltn which they Joined In singing the national anthem, the wild shouts which rent the air when the Prince of Wales showed himself to the people at the conclusion of the ceremony, must have been a revelation to the hundreds of English Visitors, to the great majority of whom. It is safe to assert, the charac ter of the Welsh people was an un known quantity. The ceremony of the Investiture took place in the center of the castle square opposite the main entrance, where a large platform had been erected. Sur rounding the platform were great tiers of seats for the accommodation of the privileged spectators, who numbered more than 12,000 and included many court functionaries, civil .and military officers, ecclesiastics and friends of the royal family, in addition to the many chosen representatives of the Welsh people. Arrived within the castle precincts, their majesties and the prince were es corted to apartments specially fitted up for their use the same which are said to have been occupied by King Edward I and Queen Eleanor where they don ned their robes of state for the subse quent ceremonial. The robes of the King and Queen were similar to those worn on other state occasions. The Prince of Wales wore a specially designed robe of cloth of gold and purple velvet, modeled on one worn by Charles I. The royal party, having robed, pro- ceeoea in two processions by a spe cially constructed roadway along the Interior of the castle to the investiture platform. The King officiated at the brief ceremony The Queen was seated at the left of his majesty and grouped about them were the earl marshal, the garter klng-at-arms, and Somerset her ald, the pursuivants, and other func tionaries. As the prince knelt before him the King said. "We declare your royal highne.ss to bo Prince of Wales." Fol lowing this the insignia was adjusted by the officials upon whom this duty was Imposed by tradition. The prince, immediately after being invested, proceeded to the celebrated Queen Eleanor's Gateway, where he prebented himself to the view of his welsh subjects. He was greeted wlih houts of wild enthusiasm, for the emo tional Welsh people recognized In him a roval prince who was also a Prince of Wales. GUGGENHEIM WAS RIGHT ON THE JOB He "Objected," on Floor of Senate, to Maesure Affect ing His Syndicate in Alaska, and Kean Helped. By JUDSON C. WELLIVER. Elephant-Donkey Race Is Nearing Philadelphia Side by side, neither able to get a lead, Judy and Jennie, the elephant and donkey, which started from Coney Is land last Friday afternoon for a race to the National Capital, In charge of Master of Ceremonies John Evans, are traveling at a rapid rate of speed toward Philadelphia, whether they will arrive some time tomorrow night. Judy bears the arms of "Uncle" Joe Cannon, while on Jennie's sleek sides are draped the colors of every good and loyal Democrat. Great and sundry adventures have been met with and disposed of by these two traveling companions. Passing afternoon, a horse attached to a cab In which Peter Joy was riding, became frichtened at Judy's bulk, with the re- eult that the animal ran away, throw ing Joy from the vehicle and painfully injuring nun. Tomorrow night -will be spent In Phil adelphia, after which the race to the Capital will be continued. That Senator Simon Guggenheim, a member of the Guggenheim Alaska syndicate, and Senator John Kern, a director In one of the most Important corporations in Alaska trade, made, on the floor of the Senate In open session, the objections that killed an Indepen dent railroad project aimed to reach the Controller bay harbor; and that after this project was killed, the Gug genheim outfit made arrangements to seize the very route which the inde pendent company had asked, are among the sensational charges which will be developed early in the Graham com mittee's hearings on Alaska affairs. These charges will be taken up in their logical place. In the general out working of the committee's plans for getting to the bottom of the whole situation. Members of the committee have been getting rapidly into touch with the relations of various public men to concerns in Alaska, and the sensa tion concerning Guggenheim and Kean will be by no means the only one in volving men high In legislative posi tion. To Show Them Up. It is proposed to show how the Gug genhelms have fought every effort of any interest save their own to get rights around the Controller harbor. The incident in which Senators Kean and Guggenheim figured is simply one of many; but It Is peculiarly suggestive, because both Guggenheim and Kean have financial associations of large im portance with Alaska affairs. Controller bay Is a fine harbor, land locked on one side by the mainland, on another by a long jutting strip of land, which extends out from the mainland, called Okalee Spit and on the third by Kanak island. This Island is a very valuable piece of ground, so located that It could easily be connected with the mainland by a trestle, and could be used as terminal grounds for a rail road. It commands the best part of the deep water of Controller bay. The possibilities of this island as a terminal were recognized by the pro moters at the Alaska Terminal and Navigation company, an Independent proposition, and back In 190S they had a bill Introduced to permit them to ex tend their proposed railroad line from the mainland to the Island, with the purpose of using It for a terminus. Their bill vias S. 6295, sixtieth Con gress; It was favorably reported, and on May 15, 190S, was reached In the course of Senate proceedings. The Record. If It should pass, the Guggenheim chance to seize that island would be lost. The record of that day's pro ceedings reads: "Alaska Terminal and Navigation Company. The bill (S. 6925) for the relief of the Alaska Terminal and Nav igation Company was announced as next in order. "Mr. Guggenheim I object to the con sideration of the bill. "The Vice President ObJecUon is made by the junior Senator from Col orado to the consideration of the bill-" That meant that the bill was beaten out of Its chances for consideration and a vote at that time. But it might come up again. In fact, it did, on May 19. Then the proceedings were as follows: "Alaska Terminal and Navigation. Mr. Kean I ask that the next bill on the calendar, the bill S. 6925. for the relief of the Alaska Terminal and Navigation Company be placed on the calendar under Rule 8. "The Vice President The bill will go to the calendar under Rule 9 at the re quest of the Senator from New Jersey." Going to the calendar under Rule 9, In these circumstances and under the Sen ate's rules, meant killing the bill. It was thus killed by the co-operation of Guggenheim and Kean. Guggenheim need not be described as to his relations with THE Guggenhelms. He is one of them. Kean was at the time, and has since been,' a director in the Pacific Coast Company. This is one of the big corporations In Alaska trade, operating steamships, railroad, coal and other varied interests. It has always been rated as affiliated with the Guggen heim syndicate. Their relations. In any event have been uniformly friendly, they co-operate In business affaire, and Senator Kean has uniformly been the close friend to Guggenheim interests in legislation. Only Starter. Now, this co-operation of two Sena tors with big business interests in Al aska to kill a bill which would have given valuable rights to an Independent company 13 at least interesting, stand ing by Itself. But It is only the begin ning. Yesterday Secretary Fisher appeared before the Graham committee that Is investigating the Controller Bay situa tion and brought along a map of that harbor and its vicinity. On this map appeared a dark green line representing the Copper River and Northwestern railroad and its locations. It was noticed that this dark ereen line ran out to Kanak island ana fol lowed the shore line of the island its entire length. jNODoay said anytning about that inci dent at the time. But the most careful noto was taken of the interesting fact. Guggenheim and Kean killed an inde pendent company's effort to get that island; then the Guggenheim road the Copper River and Northwestern promptly filed on it, and now claims It. The advantage, when you are In big business, of having your own Senators to look after your legislation Is thus aptly illustrated. The Graham commit tee feels that these advantages, and the use made of them by some large inter ests, are not sufficiently understood by the country at large. It proposes to make Its Inquiry Illumine these aspects. FOHR REALTY SALES ABE REPORTED BY , ONE FIRM TODAY W. A. Craig & Co. Sells Holding, Including Po tomac Apartment.

"Eighteen of the forty deaths were due to diseases of the di gestive organs, and it Is a serious ob ject lesson as to the necessity of selec tion and extreme caution in preparation of the food.
