It Is estimated that nearly 50,000 British and Americans will visit Delhi for the occasion. The enormous prices charged, however, have caused many people to abandon the Idea of being present. It will cost two persons with two servants $3.0OU in traveling ex penses alone.'. The cost of. the stay of visitors at Delhi cannot be fully est! mated. The hotels there are alreadv charging eight times their usual tariff and the available houses of the town have all been quickly hired at from $30,000 "to $35,000 apiece. The Indian princes are sparing no expense In tak ing steps to return , the hospitality which was extended to them in Eng land at "the time of the coronation. Owing to the scarcity of houses -some rude huts have been built among the camps, and though they will only con tain fireplaces and a few simple com forts, extravagant prices are demanded for them.

" 11 N R POLITICAL LEADER Lady Colebrook1 a Champion of Ex Premier, Lord Rosebery. She Is an Attendant at. All Race Meet ings and. Political Gatherings Eng lish Admiralty Thinking of Copying the American Style in Navy Matters. London, Nov 15. The dullness of the political atmosphere has been dispelled by the appearance of a new leader, namely, Lady Colebrook. Not since Disraeli's time has a woman taken ay active part in inner political circles. , Lady Coiebrook is now regarded as the - "dea ex machine" of Lord Kose bery's party wherever she goes,' and she goes almost everywhere, champion ing the ; ex-premier's cause. Society credits this i talented and .fascinating woman with several defections which have occurred from Sir Henry Camp-bell-Bannerman's section of the liberal party. She is exceptionally interest ing to Americans as she has two sisters-in-law who are well, known on tlie other side of the Atlantic, her brother, Arthur Paget, having married Miss Mai-y Stevens, and - her brother Almeric married Pauline, daughter of William C. Whitney,; both of New York. Lady Colebrook is gifted with rare Intelligence and an excellent voice; she can be seen at all the prin cipal race meetings and social gather ings, and the catholicity of her politi cal friendships can be judged from the fact that after a recent lafge reception to the Liberal league she stayed at the Duk'e of Devonshire's for the Derby races. Lord Rosebery has : gained a powerful ally, whose leadership is more open than his own. Sir Edward Colebrook seldom is seen In public and is generally known as a bookworm. ' London, Nov 15. The admiralty is considering the advisability of taking an important leaf out ; of the, Ameri can navy's book. - Tlie scheme now under consideration at Whitehall is to adopt a measure- closely resembling the navy personnel bill passed by the American congress. A departmental committee is sitting and has had sub mitted to it various reports regarding the workings of the new American sys tem. It is said the 'committee will retire with an honorary line rank, but that in the future engineers will be selected from the cadets of the train ing ship Britannia, under the system employed at Annapolis, and thereafter will hold executive rank. One of the gieat difficulties in tlie way of the plan is the Britannia's lack of facili ties to accommodate a sufficient. num ber of cadets to supply both sections of the service. Tlie Innovation prob ably will be bitterly opposed by certain cliques in the navy. London, Nov 15 Emperor William concluded his visit to King Edward this morning and started on his visit to Lord and Lady Lonsdale at Lowther castle, Penrith, Cumberland. Hours before the emperor's departure the road to . the railroad station was lined by hundreds of spectators. A strong force of police guarded the route and the ap proahces to the station were rigidly cordoned. Chief Inspector Melville of Scotland Yard, who has been attached to the mperor and who accompanied his majesty north, took the most strin gent precautions to keep all unauthor ized." persons at a distance from the platform. The procession, which was attended by considerable display, was headed by a detachment of cavalry. Emperor William, King Edward and the Prince of Wales occupied an open carriage drawn by four horses and pre ceded by outriders. Before entering the train the emperor inspected tlie guard of honor. Emperor William and Kiftfr Edward entered the saloon ear together and kissed each other oh both cheeks. King Edward then left the car and stood chatting with the era peror until the train moved, when he acaln shook hands with the emperor. The king's last words were: 'Good- bye again. Au revolr." Emperor William stood for some time at a win dow, as the train moved ' away,, ac knowledging the cheers of the crowds about the station. Dady'ft Attorney' aud Cash Missing. HAVANA, Nov. 15.

Royal Cortege Proceeding to Cathedral to be Present at Te Deum. Brussels, Nov 15. Three shots were fired, at the king of the Belgians this morning as his majesty was proceed ing to the cathedral to ; attend a te deum in memory of the late Queen Marie Henriette. - No one was hurt. The man who fired the 1 shots is an Italian. He stood in front of the Bank of Brussels on the Rue Itoyale. The other cartridges in his revolver proved to be ; blank, 'so it is presumed that those fired were equally harmless. The man was immediately arrested and the police had some difllculty- in rescu ing him from the hands of the crowd. He gave the name of Robini. The royal cortege consisted of seven carriages, besides . that of the king, containing the Count and Countess of Flanders, Prince and Princess Albert of Flanders, the Princess Clementine and aides de camp and ladies 'of honor. ' , . When Robini reached the police sta tion he showed ample signs of - (the rough handling which he received from the crowd. The' "prisoner, who 1 ap peared to be weak-minded, said ' his only reason for shooting was exaspera tion at seeing "so many tired-looking personages occupying such grand coaches." - I It is reported Iri-some quarters. that at least one of the cartridges contained a bullet, as a window of the carriage occupied by the Comte d'Ouliremont, the king's grand marshal, was smashed, it is thought by a bullet. . Rubino Is a bookkeepr. He was born at Rinardo, near Naples, in. 1S59, and has lately lived in Brussels, MITCHELL ON STAND 11 fli ASSOCIATION FORMED CITY NEW Counsel David Wilcox Had Him Under Cross Examination. Many Old Pupils of St Mary's School Join Hands. Attorneys Are Now Looking for a Way to Expedite Matters Each Side Has a Large Number of Witnesses They .Want Heardi Scranton, Pa, Nov 15. The, coal strike commission resumed its sessions to-day. After a few preliminaries President Mitchell, who was on the stand, all day yesterday, again went into the witness box and his cross examination by David Willcox, gen eral counsel for the Delaware & Hud son company, was continued. : Some of the attorneys connected with the case are of the opinion that some arrangement ' will have to be agreed upon to expedite, the proceed ings. Each side is anxious for a speedy ending of the hearings, but this will be impossible , if the present plans . of he contending parties are carried out. The miners have a . large number of witnesses to be heard, and the attorneys or each' o the coal com panies are . anxious to cross-examine them. After the miners have closed their case the companies will also pre sent a long "line of persons to testify and it is the intention of the lawyers on the miner' side to cross-examine the witnpssps of the comDanies.' ' Immediately after the opening of tlei morning session, Chairman G ray, for the commission, addressed John ' T. Lenehan, one of the attorneys for the non-union men, who yesterday said he represented the non-union men who worked during the strike and wanted to know what their status would be before the commission. Judge Gray sajd: ' "The commission have considered the matter of your application and have decided ; that it will ask ; you to submit to them a statement . showing whom you, represent, by what author ity, wliat point other than those ak ready at issue between the formal par ties ; to this controversy you wish to inject into, this hearing, and a concise statement of what . you : claim or what your , position Is in regard to the gen eral propositions between the formal and logical parties to this commission, and also state that you guarantee sub mission to the award of this commis sion." " Mr Lenehan asked: 'How soon must this, be done?" ... -, "As soon as you can,", replied Judge Gray. After Judge Gray's announcement to the attorney for the non-union men, Mr Willcox resumed his cross-examination of Mr Mitchell. He put in evi dence extracts from' .the proceedings of the Shamokin convention which for mulated the demands which caused the late strike; a copy of the United Mine Workers' Journal, the otneial organ of the union, and a voluminous copy of the Federationist, the (Official publica tion of. the .American Federation -of Labor. Mr Mitchell, answering a question by Mr Willcox, said that the local unions or mass meetings may direct the operations of pickets. Mr. Willcox then .read from a statement made by President Gompers of the Federation of Labou to the Chicago trust confer ence in September, 1899, In which Mr Gompers is "alleged to-have said that any trust legislation which did not speciallyjexempt organized labor from Its operations would meet the unquestioned-opposition of all the labor forces; and asked the witness if that expressed his views. Mr Mitchell replied that organized labor would not look with favor .upon any law that would legis late them out of business. Mr Mitchell, answering further ques tions, said he regarded as living wages for a miner not less than $000 per an num, which would cover his .actual ne cessities and permit him to educate his children. ,. At this noint Judge Gray asked the witness- if he meant to say a wage suf ficient 'to permit the "children'' to avail themselves of the public schools or-' to spend a portion of the family Income directly for education; and sufficient to render it unnecessary to employ child labor to increase the income . of the family. The .witness answered in the affirmative. Enthusiastic Meeting Held in Mulcahy Memorial Hall Last Night Alumni Association Organized and the Rev W. J.

St Petersburg, Monday, Nov 3. De tails, of Finance Minister Witte's jour ney to the far east are beginning, to arrive here by post. A letter dated October: 12 describes his stay at Vladi vostock. The principal matter laid be fore him .there were petitions for a free port for ships at Vladivostock, for exemption of . all Chinese goods from customs duties, ior . commercial auu naval schools at Vladivostock, for free dom of commerce in transit from cus toms inspection at Vladivostock, . and for various minor reforms in the cus toms, inspection in . the interest of pas senger traffic, vlt is generally realized here that the abolition of the free port at Vladivostock has dealt" a most se vere blow at that city's prosperity: Nor are voice's wanting in criticism of the pet scheme of the minister of finance, the modern and costly new city of Dalny. The Dalny Vbstok of Port Ar thur, not only throws doubt upon t the necessity for fountains and parks in a city, which so far has no inhabitants, but pronounce the - choice of the. site for the new city most , unfortunate. Dalny has no natural harbor, lying ba the open sea -where the water Is shaU low. The artificial ' harbor had to ' ; be eoriTiected with the sea by a canal," two miles long, which fit is dangerous to approach in even . moderately windy "weather on account of rocks and sand on both sifles. , Up to February $G, 500.000 had been . spent at Dalny. of which only, one-half was for the har Ior. Work on the: harbor had to be stopped half way because the appropri ation had -been exceeded, large sums having been expended for the beautifi cation of the site.. The splendid, look ing t brick "and stone houses, however, are declared to be' exceedingly incon venient and cold, the architects' having, as usual with Russian . architects, sub ordinated the interior arrangements for confort and convenience wholly to sunnosed exterlorbeauty. ' The Dalny Vostok declares that Inkou on the river Liao should have been selected as the princioal shipping V'Ovt of Manchuria, the Chinese transit trade haying taken this route for a ares.

The minister recommends a partial return to the old system. .declaring that no form of relief is comparable to public works and that only the Zemstvos can undertake such works. M. Von Plehwe admits that "the famine, of 1901 not only had extremely unfavorable result's for the afflicted dis tricts but testified to th general de terioration of the condition of the peasants.": . , Special forecast for Connecticut: Fair to-night and Sunday; cooler Sun day; fresh westerly winds. - There will.be a special meeting of the Hurling club at their hall in G.
