It is perhaps a pity that in the seven res of the British fleet at Spithead ft'1re was n->t anchored an old three d- her to emphasize this startling rge For the men-of-war that first r!

Among the battleships nine types were represented, the first of these be ing the Majestic type, the latest and most powerful model of British battle ships, carrying four 12-inch fifty-ton guns. Some of the others present had h* avier armament, notably the Benbow and Sans Pareil, each possessing a 111 * tun gun. There were four of the Royal Sovereign type. The Renown was the only one of her type, the distinctive ft mire of which is huge centre battery. The Admiral class of vessels was rep resented by the Collingwood, the un fortunate Howe and the Benbow. The \ • xandt r class, clow upon twenty years old, the Devastation type, with 'heir revolving turrets, were also in evidence, as were the classes of which the Indexible, Thunderer and San Par iel are specimens. Two types were shown in the cruiser < ass of which the Powerful and Terri ble. the two fastest British cruisers afloat, were the most interesting, and there were thirty-five of the old torpedo boas*. All of the ships had their full complements. The naval craft present flew about 2'»0 pennants—a number which but for the size and importance of the vessels, would have seemed lost in the crush of attending steamers and yachts—craft of every possible description in every possible condition from the great At lantic and Australian liners, cross channel packets. Norway excursion steamers. Mediterranean cruisers, old saddle boats, dirty tugs and smart yachts, dainty electric launches and fishermen's dinghy's, venturesome canoes and many <ji rowboat filled with wharf rats. The decorations of this shipping hotch-potch were as variegated as the crafts they adorned. The stately lin ers were trimmed with a near approach to what is possible in ships and the long string of flags from stem to taff rail showed up very effectively against the morning sky. The smart yachts were daintily beflagged. but not much could be said for the rest. I was therefore a great relief to the rye when, at eight o’clock on signal the Renown, Admiral Sir Nowell Salmon’s flagship, there broke out on every war vessel a perfect eruption of color. Each ship spread every stlch of bunting it possessed—streamers from every spar and rainbows over all. The flags were mainly signals of the inter national and naval codes and their mul tiform colors added very perceptibly to an ensemble which was as striking as it was theatrical. THE REVIEW. At 5 p. m.. the Honorary Admiral of ihe fleet. His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales, has Just concluded on behalf of the Sovereign of the Realm, the review of the ships gathered in her honor. The review itself did not add very’ much jo the picture framed for the spectator this morning, saving al ways the battleiike roar of great guns which was enough to waken the dead beneath the sea when the salute of twenty-one was fired. During the morning the excursion steamers, densely crowded to the rails, were very busy steaming in and out of i the lines of ships, dodging about, man I oeuvring for good positions and gener ! ally behaving in scientific fashion, re sembling nothing so much as a lot of huge water spiders. Owing to a wise regulation by the Admiralty that no vessel was allowed to use other than the best Welsh coal, the smoke nuis ance proved less disagreeable than an ticipated. Th- Prince of Wales, accompanied by Admiral, H. R. H. the Duke of Saxe-Oo burtr and Gotha, and Captain. H. R. H. the Duke of York, the Princess of Wales and other royalties, with their suites, ar rived at Portsmouth at on* o'clock. The party immediately proceeded on board the royal yacht. Victoria and Albert, in which | forty-one years ago her majesty inspected I the fleet, whereupon Her Royal Highness's ' standard was holsud. After lunching on board, at 2.3F. the Victoria and Albert. ■ with the prin-ipal royalties, left the har bor for Spit head. She was followed by the Osborne. the Alberta and Elfin, the two ! last b;irs occupied by members of the j royal house, invited princes and poten | tau s. Immediately after the royal yachts j came the Wildfire, special service vessel, ! occupied by the Right Honorable G. J. < Jose hen. First I.ord of the Admiralty, his - miralty and the heads of the admiralty departments followed in the Enchantress, an admiralty yacht. As the Albert and Victoria was seen ap proaching. the fleet, led by the Renown and echoed by the foreign vessels present, fired <l deafening royal salute of twenty one guns. Simultaneously the blue jackets and matin - ‘‘manned ships.” standing on the ironclads In solid lines round their edges and filling their tops, while on ves sels of the older type the yards were quick ly dotted. It was very theatrical and in teresting.

Immediately the >uum launches of the foreign command ers left the sides of their big ships and made for the Victoria and Albert, on the quarterdeck of which the commanding of ficers were received by the Prince of Wales. This ended th* review. The royal yachts then returned to Ports mouth. After dlnr.r His Reyul Highness and guests will com• on again to the fleet to witness the illuminations. GHOSTLY SHIPS. 10 p. m -The illumination of the fleet at S iithead was one of the mo.-t charming -i'ghts of a week of delighting spectacles, tin night was p!< isantly dark, no moon dimmed th effect of mortal creation, the w i> rs of th«j Solen were repos fully quiet. . • but 1 tocnhai the su • -- of he programme.

A City of Grumblers-Speculators Lost Money on Seats, Caterers Did Not Find as Hungry a Crowd as Th°y Expected, Undertakers Disappointed by People Living Through the Week and Politi cians Found Honors Distributed on Party Lines. (Copyright. 1SJ*7, Associated Press.) London, June 26.—After the jubilee festivities there has been a deluge of grumbles, begun by the speculators, who, almost without exception, have lost money owing to their foolishness in demanding fortunes for seats.'l hen, the caterers did not find the crowd as hungry and thirsty as they considered the people ought to have been, the tradesmen found that the jubilee vis itors could not buy to any great extent, as it took much of their savings to see the show, and there has been consider able grumbling on the subject of the jubilee honors. The men whose names have been left out of the list are not ably Liberal politicians and former ministers, who declare that the hon ors were given on the strictest party lines. With the exception of Sir Wil liam Vernon Haroourt, no former Lib eral minister was invited to be present to the ceremony before St. Paul's Ca thedral, and the members of the House of Commons who arrived too late at Buckingham Palace to be in the audi ence declared the Queen should have waited for them. The charitable soci eties women think that the Princess of Wales’ dinner to the poor was a kindly thought: but, they claim, it wa9 a mis taken idea, and that the money had better been given to the societies deal ing habitually with this work. An undertaker got ready a thousand coffins and no one needed them. The temperance people are wildly raving at beer being given to the outcast poor, and there are thousands of complaints, based upon jealousy that everybody could not get a front seat at a favored place and at every end. The Queen has already received a small museum of costly presents, and many more are on their way to Her Majesty. Whatever form they take, nu>9t of these gifts are studded with gems. The present of the Prince and Princess of Wales and their children is a large diamond brooch with a jubi lee inscription, and that of the Duke and Duchess of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, the Duke and Duchess of Connaught, Prince and Princess Christi n of*«Sch1e? wig-Holstein. the Marquis and March ioness of Lome, Princess Henry of Bat tenberg and the Duchess of Albany is a long chain of diamond links, also jubi less inscribed. The Cingalese sent an address in an ivory and gold casket en crusted with 680 gems and all the chiefs of India are sending presents. Americans were much in evidence at the jubilee procession. Mrs. Bradley Martin, dressed in blue, was at the Bachelors' Club: Mrs. William Waldorf Astor, with a large party, was at Lord Normanton’s house on Pall Mall: Lady Wi,li’>ni Beresford ’ 1r‘- *> luncheon party and Mrs. John W. Macitay received a it >v lunuiaie menu a. Mrs. Cavendish Bentinek and a num ber of others, including Mrs. Ogden Goelet and her daughter and Mrs. Ron alds. was at Clarence House. Mrs. Whitelaw Reid, wife of the United States special envoy, gave a luncheon to a party after the procession, as did Mrs. John Hay. wife of the United States Ambassador. Mrs. Joseph Cbambsrlan went to all the functions. At St. Paul’s Cathedral she wore a very attractive costume of light green silk, and Mrs. George N. Curzon was dressed in pale lilac. Mrs. James N. Roosevelt, who with Mrs. Howard Kiugscote, has taken Warwick House, St. James, gave a concert on Monday. The house was draped with white roses and orchids in American profusion. VfflUy Fair's cartoon for the week is Col. John Hay, the United States Ambassador, who thus joins the “gal lery of the most famous m*jn of the day.” After a flattering aytii£ Qt Col. Hay as a journalist, pop?, author, sol dier and diplomat. Vanity Fair con cludes: “He has a wife and a charm ing daughter who have immediately taken places in London society. Alto gether he is quite a cultured American, who can talk exceedingly well. He is a kindly, rather serious, good natured, polite gentleman who speaks with a slight accent when warmed to the sub ject.” There is considerable comment at the Canadian premier, Wilfred Laurier. ac cepting a knighthood after repeatedly declining the honor and contrary to precendent in the case of Canadian premiers. The prince of Wales has started a new type of hat. based on the mode of a fluffy beaver, with broad, curled brim, of many years ago. Mr. Willard is so well pleased with his reception in America that he is de termined to return there next season. He is now looking around for new pieces to take over with him. and has about made up his mind to secure “The Physician,” with which Charles Wynd hani made such a success this season at the Criterion Theatre. He is also thinking of adding “The Princess and the Butterfly” to his repertoire. The design for the monument to be erected to the late Lord Leighton in St. Paul’s Cathedral, where the late president of the Royal Academy is buried, has been submitted to the Prince of Wales and approved by His Royal Highness. The memorial is to be* in the form of an altar tomb sup ported by emblematic figures, and will be executed by Mr. Thomas Brock. R. A. The committee, of which the Prince of Wale' is chairman, announce that the monument will cost £2..">00, of which amount ail but £100 has been subscrib ed. It has been decided at the admiralty ro build a new yacht for the Queen, and the design has been submitted to and approved by Her Majesty. The new vessel will, in general outline, resemble the great Atlantic liners. It will be 420 feet long, with only 50 feet beam, and be fitted with powerful engines, so as to have a great speed. While no ex pense will be spared in order to make the vessel the finest of her class afloat in her decorations and fittings, she will closely resemble Her Majesty’s present yacht, the Victoria and Albert. -o REPLY DELIVERED. The Secretary of State Tell* the Jape Ifow About Annexing Hawaii. Washington, June 26.—The reply of the Secretary of State to the protest of the Japanese government against the annexation of Hawaii, has been for warded to the Jepanese legation here and by them cab.ed to Tokio. The legation probably will tile a supplemen tal statement upon receiving instruc tions from the home government. It is expected that this will take some time as the note of the State Deppartment is worded in a most careful and diplo matic manner, and its meaning is some what obscure as to the points raisci by the Japanese officials. -o A DIG IMPROVEMENT. The Standard Oil Company Increasing Its Capacity at Morgantown. Special to the Register. Morgantown, W. Va., June 26.—The Standard Oil Company has purchased forty-eight acres of land on which it will erect oil tanks for the pumping sta tion, a mile north of here. The com pany has seventeen 30,000-barrel tanks and is enlarging the pump house, which forces oil from the West Virginia and r~ svlvania fields to Philadelphia. His Condition is Bad and the Doctors Believe His Ailment is Permanent. New York, June 26.—William F. Hoey passed a bad night at the resi dence of his mother-in-law, Mrs. M. T. French, in this city. He whistled and sang and went through several scenes of the part of “Old Hoss," which made him famous. His wife, Helen French, known In “A Parlor Match" as "Innocent Kid.” is ill, and her condition was made worse by the insane antics of her husband. His physician to-day that he had not completed his diagnosis of the case, but he was suffering from a mental ail ment that threatened to be premanent. ONE KILLED And Another Badly Wounded While At tempting to Commit Robbery, Springfield, Mo., June 26.—At Buf falo. forty miies north of here, last night. Frank T\lor v as killed and his brother Johr. badly wounded while attempting to rob the wood mill. The Taylors were members of a recent dis organ.zed gang of robbers made up of young Dallas county men. Two of tne number weakened and notified the Sheriff that, an attempt would lie made to rob the mill. The. Sheriff’s men sur rounded the premises while the robbers were at work and on their refusal to surrender, fired Into the building. Frank Taylor was instantly killed.

St. Louis, Juno 26.—Kentucky beat Missouri. Ornament outran Typhoon II. in the Derby, worth $12,000, at the Fair Grounds to-day, and several thou sand St. Louisians walked home. The much played Typhoon was beaten not only by Ornament, of Kentucky, but also by Buekvidere, a 12 to 1 shot, who came near getting into first place. Aside from the reassertment of Orna ment's superiority, the rare was a dis appointment. Ornament's pries 19 to 2U and out prevented any Heavy play on him by the visitors, while Typhoon at 11 to 10 was hardly more attractive. A very large sum of money was made on the race, but it was not done by Ornament. It was made by a select coterie, which had apparently very ex cellent reasons for knowing that Buck videre would run second, and the com ponent parts of the coterie found 2 to 1 for place about as good a thing as they wanted. The day opened with a clear sky, a cool wind and a track like an unbaked brick. Three races passed through that stew of clay before the derby was called, and the churning did not im prove it any. The only good going on the track was around the outside edge, but ap parently the only man who recognized the fact and used his knowledge was C. T. Patterson, the owner of Orna ment Mr. Patterson took a cane and unostentatiously sat down near the mile post while the three starters paraded before the grand stand. Buekvidere, ridden by Slaughter, came first; Ty phoon, ridden by Garner, next; and Or nament, with Clayton in the saddle, last. The crowded grand stand gave them the usual encouraging howl, and they went to the post. Starter Kit Chinn sent them away to a flviug start when Buekvidere got in front. Force of habit sent every jockey over to the rail at the turn, right in the heaviest going of the track. Owner Patterson, at the mile post, smiled sweetly, and sat still. As they came around Ty phoon was in the lead with Ornament at his ear. Buekvidere was close up and each slinging mud like a politician. As the three neared the quarter Patter son, the owner of Ornament, rose and signalled with his cane. At the instant Clayton shot Ornament clear across to the dry ground and before the other jockeys could grasp his meaning, the race was practically won. Clayton's manoeuvre freshened up the son of Order, so he made five lengths, and he kept it to the close. The mile post, too, was the place Typhoon apparently had an engage ment, for lie wanted to stop—and for all practical purposes did stop there. He was beaten so hard and so badly that the torn up Typhoon tickets looked like snow. Twenty thousand people witnessed the race. Ornament will be shipped to Cincin nati to-morrow to run in the Oakley Derby. Summaries; St. Louis Derby. 512.000. mile and a half—Ornament. 127, (Clayton), 19 to 20, and out, won; Buekvidere, (C.

An Excursion Train in a Sraashup at Millersburg—It Was Carrying Ak ron Workmen lo an Oil ting When It Dashed Iuto a Baltimore and Ohio Train. Akron, 0., June 26.—The first section of the Cleveland, Akron and Columbus train, having on board the employes of the Goodrich Rubber Company, the Diamond Rubber Company and the Akron India Rubber Company, was run into by a Baltimore Ohio engine, at Millersburg this morning. Several per sons were seriously injured. The employes of the Goodrich Rub ber Company were on the.r way to : Hiawatha Park, at Mount Vernon, for their annual outing. It was not intend ed to stop at Millersburg. and the train was going through the town at a high rate of speed when the engineer sud- 1 denly discovred a Baltimore & Ohio en- ' gine on the track ahead of him stand ing in front of the depot. He whistled for brakes and applied the air after re-1 versing but there appeared to he no cheek on the speed. It dashed on and | struck the Baltimore & Ohio train. , The collision was terrific. The engi neers and firemen of both engines jumped and saved themselves. The Baltimore & Ohio engine was thrown j from the track as well as the baggage ear on the colliding train. Both en- , gines were wrecked and both baggage | cars badly damaged. There were five hundred passengers on board the ex cursion train, and great excitement prevailed. The injured are: Philip Rosemont, left leg broken at the hip. very serious ly hurt: John Wiese, internally injured; Elias Capron, back and left leg bad ly bruised: Champ Lilly, nose broken, severe bruises: Frank Hilton, leg severely injured: Edward Hilton. Injured about bead: Arthur Cope, broken ankle and internal Injuries. All o' the above were riding in the baggage ear being bievele riders and having their wheels with them. The engineer of the B. & 0. valiantly stuck to his engine until the very last minute, while thp fireman and engineer of the Cleveland, Akron & Columbus, when the trains were about thirty feet apart. aft«r reversing the engine, jump ed and thus saved their lives and re eeiv2d onJy a few bruisea The offidais of the road are as yet unable to locate the cause of the collision, but the fol lowing is the given reason, believed to be authentic: It is said that the B. & O. conductor told his engineer that the special was not due until 9:16 a. m.p and that he should go ahead when in reality the orders read that the special was due at 8:16. -o THE PHILIPPINE REBELLION. The Spaniard* Seem to 1<« Getting: the Worst of It There. Tacoma, Wash., June 26.—Advices received by the steamer Victoria, which arrived here yesterday, brings the fol lowing news of the Philippine rebel lion. A large band of insurgents who left Cavite, have reached the neighbor hood of Manila, anti on May 18 were within an hour’s drive of the capital. This was after Commander-in-Chief Rivers had published his latest procla mation declaring the rebellion ended and offering a pardon to the insur gents. Late Yokohama papers received to day print a letter written from the rebel camp at Balinkupsang. near Manila, on May 18. The writer asserts that during the campaign just ended, flip Spanish have lost no less than 4. 700 men killed and mortally wounded. The rebels started with hut nine efficient guns, while now they have nearly 10.000 captured Mauser and R* m ington rifles. Three important towns had just risen in rebellion, one in Tarn bales. nnother in Tayabas and one in the Isle of Negros. a IblooiTclot On Senator Pettigrew's Brain Cans- s the Sudden Closing of a Speech He Was Making. Washington, June 26—Senator Petti grew was overcome in the midst ot' a violent speech in the Senate at 2:25 p. m. to-day. He hesitated, failed to enunciate his words and then without serious agitation took his seat with his sentence unfinished. Water was brought to him and his friends gathered about. He appeared to revive quickly and business proceeded. He left the Senate soon after. Dr. Baine, who was summoned to at tend Senator Pettigrew, said his illness was caused by a blood clot on the brain, but that there would be no serious re sults if he should be kept free from ex citement. The Senator was not physically In capacitated. except in the sudden loss of power of speech. Although be took his seat unaided, his associates felt that grave possibilities were involved in such an attack. They were quickly by his 9ide and he was ministered to with as little confusion as possible. He left the chamber soon after, and was taken home by his friends. The debate pro ceeded. but no further proeress on the tariff bill was made, and the awe-like feeling occasioned by this accident led to an adjournment at 3 o’clock. The Senate started to-day on its sec ond passage through the hill, the pur pose heing to dispose of all items pre viously passed over. The paragraphs considered were in the chemical and earthenware schedule, and failed to elicit more than technical debate except in the unfortunate instance terminat ing with Mr. Pettigrew’s affliction. -o NEWS FROM THE ORIENT.

Possible That It May Get Through the Senate Next Week. Republicans Profess to See Their Way Clear—They Have Adjusted Most of Their Differences and Ex pect to Settle All Others in such a Manner as will Command the Full Party Vote for the Bill—It la Not Believed, the Measure Will Re1 quire Much Time in Conference Committee. Washington, June 26.—The Republi can tariff managers are very hopeful of being able to complete the consideration of the tar.ff bill in the Senate by next Wednesday night, a result which would bring the end in the Senate within tha present month. They are led to thia conclusion because the Republicana have adjusted most of their differences and see their way clear to the settle ment of others. The Democratic lead ers do not concede the possibility of so early a conclusion. They generally place it a week further on, or about tbs 7th or 8th of July, but admit that tha end may come by Saturday of next week. Of the problems still unsolved by the Republicans, lead ore, coal, Iron ore, gypsum, tallow and a few chemicals are giving the most trouble, but there is no doubt of an adjustment on all of these, which will hold the full party vote. The disposition is to hold to the rates at present fixed on lead and iron ore with the Intention of making changes in conference. The rate on Can adian coal will probably lie advanced to G7 cents per long ton. The advocates of a high rate on lead ore apparently are prepared to meet their opponents half way in conference and accept a rate of 114 cents. The finance committee has practically decided to abandon the proposed tax on bank checks .which at one time was so favorably considered, and also the in crease of 44 cents a barrel in the beep tax and the charge in the tobacco tax. Indeed it appears more than probable that all the changes in the internal rev enue laws proposed by the hill will ho abandoned. There is somedifllniltyin the judiciary committee in agreeing upon the form of an anti-trust amendment, but all the probabilities point to the incorporation of the Petttis proposition directed spe cifically at the Sugar Trust, and of very little more It is exeperted that the reeiprociLj amendment will he ready for presen tat* n by next Tuesday. The In dications! )»that it will make provision for the negotiation of reciprocity trea ties. hut there, will he a r^uiremer* that they shall be S.oimitteri to the rfdl' ate. differing in this respect from the reciprocity provision of the McKinley law. The necessity for subserving the revenues will render it impossible that provision should he made for the free admission of dutiable articles under reciprocal agreements, but that a max imum percentage for remission will he specified. The rate of remission most favorably considered now is the 20 per cent. There probably will he objection to the retention of the House provision for the continuance of tho Hawaiian reci procity agreement on sugar, hut the Finance Committee will favor such an arrangement, and tho probabilities arfl that the Republicans will support if solidly pending action upon the an nexation treaty. The action of the com mittce In withdrawing its amendment! to the sugar schedule probably would have the effect of leaving the provision in force without further effort to that end but there is no probability that some one will not offer an amendment that will open up the entire question. With the question once opened there ii liable to he considerable debate which in view of the pendency of the annax ation treaty is liable to trench upoi executive privileges. The Democrats also expect to niscusi hides chemicals, lead ore, coal and vari< ous other questions at ronslderab't length and it is on this account that they put the <lato of conclusion so fat beyond that, fixed by the Republicans The question of the duty on tea il again receiving the attention of tin committee. This was practically alwin. doned at one time, but since it has beet found necessary to let the hoor tax g< and to forego the tax on checks It H thought that, the tea duty may ho nee* essary to bring the revenue up to th< requisite point. The inclinations of thi committee are still against the tax and if it is kept in it will only he on account of the necessity for so doing. The com mittee is now having a computation made that, will determine this matter, The expectation is that the bill will not be long in conference. The prospe< t. ive House conferees have been in touch with the Senate managers from the be ginning of the consideration of the bib in the Senafp, and have already, ■' stated, practically concurred in many of the changes which have been mad", Roth the Senate and House managers will agree upon the necessity for at early an agreement as possible, and working In this spirit, they will not split hairs. --- RIO FIRE AT NEW ORLEANS.
