The Long Ta'krd of Street Pagea nt in Honor of Queen Victora Has Oc- curred and Many Other Ceremonies Will Follow Through the Week. London, June 22. The imperial idea is the keynote of today's celebra tion. Every feature of the proceedings accentuates it. The places of honor were given to the heads of great co lonies, troops of distant frontiers have the right of way. Provincials and lit tle Englanders were forgotten and scientific attainments acd growth of liberty in England herself was scarcely mentioned. The display was entirely military and naval, the two arms of mother England thai -have embraced globe. When Disreali gave Victoria the new title of empress he liitle imagined ehe would be more of an em press than she was a queen. The colonies were made to feel their im portance. Since an early hour this morning, congratulatory telegrams have been pouring into Buckingham palace from every court in Europe and the remotest part of the British empire. Queen rose early and breakfasted with her family. Her majesty before leaving Buckingham palace for St. Paul's caused the following telegram to pass over the wire from the palace into the central telegraph office and thence sent to every part of the vast British empire. "From my heart I thank my beloved people. May God bless them R. and I." The queen returned to Buikingham palace at 1:40 o'clock. Toe entire pro gram was a grand success and passed off without a single hitch. The crowning feature of the official celebration of the sixtieth anniversary of the coronation of Victoria as queen of the United Kingdom of Great Bri tain and Ireland has come and gone, and all London is congratulating itself tbis afternoon upon the complete suc- ess of oce of the greatest popular demonstrations of modern times. A religious sei vice of brevity and sim plicity, a royal pageant of unpreced ented brilliancy, a mighty outburst of patriotism and evidence of personal love, these were the principal char acteristics of the greatest day that London has ever teen. For the few hours between daybreak this morning and sundown tonight, political, relig ious and all other differences are by common consent o -gotten. Legisla tors and constituents have sunk their tor y ism and their radicalism, arch bishops and bishops of the state church have for the first time on recard sat side by side with the accredited rep resentatives of the much-denounced, and of ten times despised, dissenting denominations. The chosen d legates of organized labor, some of them rad icals of the deepest dye, rubbed shoul ders with princelings and nobles as they circled their way to the location assigned them in the tiers of seats sur rounding St. Paul's. Pride of country acd of race was the one animating thuught of the miliums of British men and women that crowded London to day, and the cheering that went tj the skies from Buckingham Palace to Ludgate Hill and back again echoed the loyalty and devotion ef an empire upon which the sun never sets, for the venerable woman who for six decades has ruled so wisely and so well. The state passage through the city was carried out according to program and without a hitch. All night long tbete were big crowds in the principal btreets west of St. Paul's, and as early as six o'clock tens of thousands of peo ple were on hand to claim their reserv ed seats on the stands erected along Ludgate Hill, Fleet street, the Strand and thence on to Constitution Hill. An hour later the detachments of military began to make their appearance, and in less time than it takes to write it the entire route was lined with red coats. At the same hour all carriage traffic along the route was stopped and all the bridges cammunica:ing north and south within the area of the route were closed to prevent rushes and dan ger. The queen's procession was headed by regiments of the royal India guard, the hist and second life guards, the Scots Grays, contingeuts of the coloaial l epiest ntative troops to a total of seven hundred, and a tpecial escort of native officers from every crack regiment in India. Next in line was the headquar ters staff of the army, including the commander-in-cnief, Lird Wolsaly, ai.d the Duke of Coonaugbt, the latter being in supreme command of the troops for the day. Behind these came the princesses of the royal family and a magnificent cavalcade ol princes on horseback. The Prince of Wales, astride a magnificent black charger, immed.ately preceded the quean's car ridge. Glorious iu color a ad decora- lions as were tome of the vehicles that preceded, U( the royal 8ta carriage ! outshone them all. It was a triumph of the coachmakers' and decorators' art in enamel and gold, with harness to match, tbe cost of tbe harness alone, the first manufactured for a royal car riage since the days of George the Fourth, being ten thousand dollars A footman in red and white livery walked at the head of each of the six cream colored horses with a hand upon the bridle. Her majesty, who appear ed to be in the best of spirits, and in decidedly fair physical condition, re- pea'edly bowed her acknowledgements to the tempest of greeting that started from the moment she entesed the state carriage and grew into a tornado as the second division -passed along Pall Mall, the Strand and others of the most closely packed points of the route. The procession moved at a slow pace and abundant opportunity was therefore afforded the spectators of seeing what, to the overwhelming majority, was their first and last view of the reigning sovereign, xne nrst stoppage was at Law Courts on the side of old Temple Bar. Here th3 lord mayor presented the homage of the city and with it the sword of state, the latter, in accordance with precedent, being returned by the queen; while the lord mayor, as the representative of the municipality, took up a position on horseback imme diately in front of the queen's carriage. The Americans in the parade attract ed much attention. General Miles, Minister Hay aiid Special Envoy Reed, were very prominently placed, and near them were the most august body of dig nitaries ever assembled. There was not a monarch on the earth but what was represented. After the pictures que Indian escort came the moment for which the millions were waiting. "The Queen" was shouted as was seen the chariot in which sat Victoria. At this time the sun was shining brightly as her majesty approached, tbe cheers were overwhelming. The queen sat apparently unmoved at the popular ovation, though several times she was compelled to show the emotion she felt. While the recption was the grandest outpouring of popular admiration and affection ever vouchsafed a sovereign, she could unfortunately, see little or nothing of the granduer of pagantry of which she was the central figure. Tbe queen's carriage reached Temple Bar at noon where Lord Mayor ren dered offic'al homage to the sovereign London. June 22 The government cf India, as a memorial to the jubilee. released 2,000 prisoners who were con victed of various offecses. Samuel Wrigh, Dead. Samuel Wright, an ex-uoion soldier and a pensioner of the United States government, died tbis morning at 11 o'clock at his home on tbe corner of Sonora aod Atthony stree.s. Mr. Wnsht has for the past six years been a sufferer from dropsy and has grad ually grown worse until tbe end came today. His wife was absent at the time of his death but returned at noon aod found the house filled with neigh bors. A peculiar circumstance about the death was that when Mrs. Wright left home this morning to go to her work she placed all the money she bad under Mr. Wright's pillow, out wnen sue came in after his death tbe money was goce. Suspicion rests on a Mexican who was present when Mr. Wright died and the matter was immediately reported to the police. The stealing of this money ieft Mrs. Wright penni less. Badly Burned. Last night there was a large crowd of people gathered in a house near the quartet in Juarez to celebrate a wed ding with a dance During the pro gress of the dance a you- g girl knocked a lamp oB ot a taoie and the lamp Durst and the oil Hew all over the girl sitting her clothing on hre and burning others near by. The flames fired the lace cur tains in the door and caused a panic and as the people ran by the burning curtains many were more or less scorched. One woman's clothes caught fire and were torn off of her and in this coudition she ran to the hills back of town. The girl who turned the lamp over was so badly burned that she is not expectsd to live. Nearly everybody in the house was slightly burned. J.he lire was extinguisned without injury to the house. Valuable Recommendation. It is understood that the boundary commission have unanimously recom mended to the Mexican government that it cut a direct channel across the neck of the long bend immediately be low this city, tnus cutting off six or seven miles of round about flow, and so accelerating the flood waters down stream as to very largely reduce all danger to tbis city and Juarez from freshets and lloods-herealter. Some thiuk that the peop'e over the river will object, as this move neces sitates ceding to the United Sta'es about one thousand acres of land, but the advantages to Juarez are so man ifest, in the assurance of escape fro n flood damage that there will really De no opposition. Texas Train Robbers Located. The three men who recently held up the Southern Pacific passenger train near Lozier. Texas, and robb'd the through and local safes of the Wells- Fargo Kxpress company, securing about $42,000, have been trailed to San Angelo, Texas, and are known to be in biding on a ranch aiioming that ton They will probably be captured within a few days All three are desperate characters and are under iDdietinrnt for murder. They have been fugitives from justica for several years and are known to the officers as bushmen, as they rarely go luto a town, and spend ail of their time in the busn on ran ches, where tbey are not likely to be found.

FOB AFTERNOON SERVICE Many Events That Occur During: a Day are Told Promptly by the Herald. Much News of Interest to the Read ers of this Paper. The Woolen Schedule. Washington. June 22. The tariff was taken up at 11 o'clock and the con sideration of wool and the woolen schedules were begun. Mantle, of Montana, offered to substitute the prop osition of the National Wool Growers association, providing a rate on raw wool higher than the bouse bill or fi nance committee amendment.. What is conceded the mo6t trouble some sections of the tariff bill, several republican leaders believe, will be dis posed of by Saturday evening, and the finishing touches to tbe measure may be applied July 1. Mantle addressed the senate advocat ing his substitute. McLaurin, of South Carolina, asked for a horizontal reduction. Allison pro posed making a duty of 10 to 11 cents a pound instead of 12 as the house bill had it. This carried by a vote of 53 to 13. Carter, of Montana, referred to the vote indignantly, declaring that those who had combined for the redac tion would regret their action. For- aker eaid an agreement in writing was made with the finance committee on wool and he wanted it carried out. Allison resented the assertion savage ly. Foraker said it was true. Then followed a sharp and excited contro versy, which finally quieted down. Social Dein rcracy's Program. Chicago, June 22. Eugene V. Debs went to Terre Haute today for a week's rest, the majority of the delegates have also departed. Those left in charge of the new Social Democracy movement have begun the work as signed them.

M. & Pacific railroad is now finished to Casas Grandea 169 miles distant. About the building of this road there is some history that is imparalelled in road building. In a little less than one year's time all this work has been done and steel rails now run over desert country and mountain passes where two years ago a railroad was little dreamed of. All the rolling stock of the road is of the highest grade and is fitted with the best and latest applianoee and tbe en tire equlppment is nst class in 'every particular and everything: is on the ground ready for business just as soon as the government oays tbe road is in condition to do business and on this point there is no doubt but that the government will be fully satisfied, for there have been but few railroads built that have s smoother road bed to run over. Tbe only trouble has been in sand hills where the road bed would shift, but this has been remedied by ballasting tbe road witn clay and grav el. All this work has been accomplish ed within one .year and the road is ready for traffic. This is not all of tbe achievements of the road. The money that built- the road is American capital and each share holder put up his money before - tbe work was begun and tbe result has been that one hundred and fifty-six miles of railroad has been built, the work naid for and not a bond or any other kind of paper stands out against tbe company. Tbe road was omit with the money of the stock holders and has been pushed through with such promptness and success that the directors feel proud of their record and highly pleased with the general manager, Mr. J. P. Ramsey. There are only a lew roads tuat nave been built that have as good a record as the Corralitos route. Flood Notes. Major Rand says the land in his bos- que has been raised three feet by the flood, it is now a sea ol soiiduymg mud. - Tbe water is about out of the lower T. & P. yards which are liberally salt ed with silt. The T. & P.'s belt line is mostly un der three feet of sand and debris, with places here and there washed out. In one place near the tannery, a channel 10 feet deep has lormed turning: a freight car over. The cars left on the line are tipped around in all shapes. It may be a month before the railroad can repair its line. George Gaienne's wing dams have thrown the current over between Quinn's and Evans' houses where the water is over oue's bead, and men go in swimming there every evening. The water has about st-pped seeping into Gaienne's place and he has moved, bis family back. He is hauling in sand to fill ud the lowest places, and has built a new road out to tbe north with sand. He is anxious to begin to re store the surroundings to where they were before tbe flood; so is (Jnariie Patterson and other property owners, but tbey can do nothing until Mayor Magoffin wakes up and stops that- botv ' channel from the east of Stanton street bridge, something he has been going to do right off a long time, and has not yet got at it. His constituents in ward 2, the men who elected him, are regis tering a large and healthy kick agatast any more delay. They want to get to work to rebuild their homes. It ha9 been noticed that wherever a wing dam was built with brush, a sand bar promptly formed at that placet Here is a bint lor nts nonor tne mayor. Military Courtesies. General Mills visited Fort Bliss last' evening, and was given a reception suitable to his rank, that of a brigadier general. General Mills' party consist ed of Lieutenant Britton Davis and wife. Secretary Happer and wife, Mrs. Glasgow, daughter of Mayor Magoffin, Consulting Engineer Follete of the boundary commission. Col- Corella and Secretary Maillefert also of tbe commission and Max Weber. As the general's party reached the boundary of the reservation, a briga dier . general's salute of eleven guns was fired, and at tbe quarters of the commanding officer, the party were received by the of ficers of the poet, and music from the regimental band. After an interchange of courtesies, the general and party returned to tbis city well pleased wita their visit to the poet. Colonel vanvalzab sends tne Dana to the plaza in this city tonight to give a public serenade in honor of General Mill'. Tbe following program wtu be given: Grand march, State Militia Keview; overture to Marina, selections from Suppe's Journey Through Africa- selections from the Beggar Student, fantasia on My Old Kentucky Home, and Sousa's Queen of the Sea Waltz.
