the ex-czarina, had started for the Cathedral
of the Assumption, the high court dignitaries
who had assembled at the palace received
the Imperial Insignia in the throne hall and
took up the stations allotted to them in the i
cortege of the emperor. Before the proces

jesties, bearing a large golden cross, studded
with Jewels, and assisted by two deacons,
carrying a golden bowl full of holy water,
sprinkled the whole route which was to be
followed by their majesties from the palace
to the Cathedral of the Assumption. The ex-

the time had arrived for the departure of
the imperial cortege, and the latter moved
toward the cathedral. The grand proces
.sion was headed by the chevalier guards of
the ex-Empress Marie Feodorovna. These
were followed by Cossack soldiers and peo
ple, delegations from the nobility, the
senate and the church. The Imperial j
insignia, borne by high court dignitar
ies, Included the collar of the order of
St. Andrew, of the czarina, the sword, the
standard and the seal of the empire; the
imperial mantles of their majesties, the
globe; the scepter, and the crowns of the
empress and emperor.
As their majesties approached the en
trance of the cathedral, the metropolitan of
Moscow pronounced the usual allocation, the
metropolitan of St. Petersburg presented
the cross of their majesties, and the metro
politan of Kieff presented them with holy
water. Entering the cathedral, their majes
ties bowed to the knee three times before a
holy door, and venerated the saintly Images.
They afterwards took their seats on the
throne of the Czars Michael Feodorovitcb
and John 111. The archbishops, archman
drites and officiating clergymen placed them
selves in two ranks between the thrones and
the holy dooi, and the choir chanted the
psalm "Miserlcordlam et Judicium Cantabo

step of the throne, while the bearer of the
standard occupied a position on the third

The emperor arose, and, taking off the collar
of the order of St. Andrew, ordered that the

the pontifical benediction of the metropolitan
of St. Petersburg, who placed his hands on
the czar's head in the form of a cross, recit
ing the two prayers prescribed by the ritual.
The prayers terminated, the emperor ordered
that the imperial crown be presented to him.
Thereupon, the metropolitan of St. Peters
burg took the imperial crown and handed it
to the emperor, who took it in his hands and
placed it on his head.
The metropolitan then In a loud voice pro
nounced the prescribed allocution.
In a similar manner his majesty caused to
be presented to him the scepter and the
globe, and having taken the scepter in his
right hand and the globe in his left hand, he
seated himself on the throne. A few mo
ments later his majesty arose and placed the
scepter and globe upon cushions. The mon
arch then called upon her majesty, the Em
press Alexandra Feodorovna, to approach, and
sho knelt beside him on a velvet cushion,
richly embroidered with gold. His majesty
thereupon solemnly lifted the crown from his
own head and touched with it the forehead
of the empress. He then replaced the crown
upon his own head. His majesty afterwards
took up the crown of the empress and placed
it on the head of her majesty. Her majesty's
imperial mantle and the collar of the Order
of St. Andrew were next presented with the
same ceremony. This done, her majesty took
her seat on the throne, while the emperor
again took the scepter In his right hand and
the globe in his left. The archdeacon next
proclaimed the imperial title in extenso. The
bells of the cathedral and all the other sa
cred edifices throughout Moscow were rung,
and a salute of 101 cannon shots were fired.
The emperor then arose, handed the scepter
and the globe to the attendants, and knelt
down to recite from the book presented him
by the metropolitan of St. Petersburg, the
prayer prescribed for the occasion. The pray
er terminated, the metropolitan and all pres
ent knelt and in the name of the nation of

prayer, the metropolitan of St. Petersburg
read a short allocution to the emperor and
the choir intoned the "Te Deum" to the sound

ficiating clergy having been notified that the
holy door was open, the two archbishops, as
sisted by archdeacons, advanced from the
altar towards his majesty to announce to the
latter that the holy ceremony of the anoint

having handed his sword to one of his au

and, preceded by the scepter, the globe and
the crown, went towards the holy door, fol

tram cars were packed. Two cars left Gov

The first got over Point Elllce bridge, which
crosses Victoria Arm, safely, but when the
other was about half way over, the middle
span of the bridge, about 160 feet In length,
gave way, and the car plunged into the
water some IQP feet below. The car waa
completely submerged, and all on board wera
drowned, with the exception of some of those
who were standing on the platform, and
who, escaping injury from falling timbers,
managed to save themselves by using the
floating ruins of the bridge, and thus got
ashore. Numbers of the bodies have already
been gotten up, and the work of identifica
tion is proceeding. It is a difficult matter,
as a great many of the bodies are those of
visitors. So far as known the dead are:

"I will start for Idaho with that little girl
and her mother tonight. I will see that she
gets there all right, or there will be some
shooting on the way. If it comes to that I
can probably get my Iron out as quickly aa
any man who tries to take the girl away from
me." That was the way Deputy United
States Marshal Sidney J. Roberts expressed
himself to a reporter of the Globe yester
day at the Astoria hotel, talking about th«
final trip in an Interesting case of kidnaping
which he had finally run to earth in St. Paul.
Roberta wasn't talking to hear himself
either. He is built differently. For yean
he has been In the service of the United States
government He has traveled around among
the sage brush of Idaho and earned the repu
tation of being a fearless officer and a good
man for a criminal to keep as far away from
as possible. He is known throughout Idaho
as "Sid" Roberts, and he Is Just as determined
as some of the desperate characters whose
bullets have left scars on his arms and body.
Roberts has heretofore been called upon to
look after a different class of criminal work.
But last January Salmon City, Idaho, had a
sensation, caused by James Dbwling. Dow
ling formerly lived In St. Paul, but went West
some years ago and finally opened a saloon
In Salmon City. He married the daughter of
a pioneer of that place, and things moved
along much the same as they usually do for
a year or two. Then Dowllng fell out with
his wife, and the case went Into court to de
termine who should have possession of a
pretty little girl who had been born to them,
which was two and a half years old. The
court decided that Mrs. Dowllng should have
the little girl. That was Jan. fi this year,
and at the particular time that the Judge
made the decision Salmon City had one of
the biggest sensations that it had had for
many years. Dowllng is a nervy and de
termined man, and. rising in the court room.
he drew a revolver, stood off the Judg.\ court
officers and spectators and. walked out of the
court room with his little girl, lie managed
to ship the little one out of the state, but was
himself captured and sent to Jail. Be, how
ever, broke out of Jail and 4a now a fugitive
With the disappearance of the little girl h.>
gan a search on the part of the mother for
her. Three months passed before any trace
of ber was found. Then there went an ink
ling to Idaho that the little girl was in Mon
tana, and Mr. Roberts was started out to try
and find her.
"It was all new business to me," said Mr.
Rcl>erts yesterday. "I have been used to
prowlincj around In the sage brush. I've
chased Indians and been In some pretty tough
places. My arm Is covered with bullet
wounds, and I've been shot frequently, but
when It came to taking hold of a kidnaping
case I didn't know much about It. I never
was In a city before till I came to St. Paul
four days ago on this hunt. But I did *_<
best I could. I first got track of her In Great
Falls, Mont, four weeks ago. and then began
the chase. She was in care of a woman who
Is traveling around with a commercial trav
eler. From Great Falls I followed them to
Janesvllle, Wis.; then to Zanesvllle. O.;
back to La Crosse; then to Janesvllle again,
and at last to St. Paul. Hero I found her at
the home of her grandmother on Conway
street. As soon as I had located her I kept
a pretty close watch on the house and wired
to her mother for the necessary papers. But
the mother, after consulting the governor,
wired that none were necessary, and said to
hold the little child until she came. She
got here yesterday morning. To make sura
of doing the thing right I got a writ of habeas
corpus and this forenoon Mrs. Dowllng and
I went over to get the girl. I left her
mother at the Margaret street station and
went up to the bouse. I would say that the
people treated me as nicely there as I ever
was treated in my life. But the little one
was timid and I didn't want to frighten h--r,
so I left an officer and went back for her
mother. We went up and her mother waited
In the front yard while I called the little one
to the door. The minute she came out and
saw the woman she Just sttld, 'Mamma,
mamma," and ran out and put her arms
around the mother's neck. They sat on the
lawn embracing ea-jh other for several min
utes. I am not given to crying particularly,
but I am n»t aehamed to say that I cried my
self at the sight.
"Of course, I am pleased that I found the
little one, as well as her mother. Mrs. Dow
ling's relatives are among the best people ol
Salmon City. Her father is one of the pio
neers. He used to kill rattlesnakes and drive
stage where the city now stands. He was
afterwards successful in business, worked
hard and has retired."
Mr. Roberts was asked If he did not fear
an effort would be made to take the little
one from him before he got home, and It was
then he remarked:
"I will start for Idaho with that little girl
and her mother tonight I will see that she
gets there, or there will be some shooting on
the way. If it comes to that I can probably
get my iron out as quickly as any man whe
tries to take that girl away from me."
The deputy marshal, Mrs. Dowllng and th«
little girl left on the Northern Pacific tost
