A final effort was made to have the naval re view carried out in some fashion since it was considered deplorable that, so many warships, home and foreign, should disperse without any official inspection, but the govern ment leader in the House of Commons, A. J. Baltour, de cided that it was impossible. The admiralty has announced that all entertainments planned for the officers and crews of the ships off Spithead have been cancelled. Admiral Sir Charles Hotham, in command of the British lleet off Spithead, received all the foreign admirals on his flagship today. The commanders of the foreign vessels are awaiting instructions from their governments regarding their departure. The British fleet will begin to disperse June 30 The only feature of the corona tion decorations, etc., escaping de molition are the illumination de vices in London and the bonfires which bad already been laid on 300 hill-tops throughout the United Kingdom. According to the Evening News, there is good foundation for the rumor that it was the King's earn est desire that he should be crown ed in his room, and that the pro cession of Friday should be carried out without him. The story of the King and the Epsom gypsy is being re told. Ac cording to this, a gypsy who was supposed not to have known His Majesty's identity, told him that he would " rise high, to the throne itself, but would just fall short ot his ambition at the last moment and would not be crowned King. The same seer told King Edward that he would be so unlucky on the turf that even if one of his horses was going to win a race it would fall dead at the winring post. This was fulfilled in the case of Counterpane in 1886. Later at Hamburg, a palmist is said to have fontold that the King would become ill as he started for his coronation. Whether the sto ries are true or otherwise the coin cidence of their beinr current this year and the event of yesterday are regarded as remarkable. . Civil Service Examinations. The U. S.
