LONDON, June IT,. (New York World
Cablegram Special Telegran.) The Marl
boroughs' coronation coach will outshine
all otben In gorgeousness. It Is an enor
nioua affair, alung on leather straps, and
'capable of carrying three persons comfort
ably on each seat. It will be drawn by
two magnificent heavy Flemish stallions.
The weight la too great for ordinary car
riage horses. The body of the coach Is
painted crimson, accentuated by black
'lines. The hammercloth covering the coach
man's box and hanging on each side Is of
the same color. The duke's coat of arms In
(silver la on the roof. Over each door la
'a dural crown of silver. Two lackeys will
tand up behind In state livery, with
white wigs and gnld-beaded canes.
' Each horse will have an old-style foot
,inan, also gorgeously appareled, walking
beside It, each carrying a whip. The whole
outfit coat 122,000, It Is said. Rarely If
ever can It be used again.
Edwin Abbey Is busily engaged on his
grand picture of the coronation, which he
. as commissioned bv Kins Edward n nalnt.
The picture will have portraits of all the
chief actors In the ceremony, who are now
Itting to the artist In his London studio.
The decorations of Westminster Abbey will
be left Intact the Friday, Saturday and
Sunday after the crowning, so the artist
can paint them in accurately. There Is
'intense jealousy among the English artists
(beraue an American was chosen to paint
ythls historic work intended for Windsor
castle, but there is no question about his
election from an artistic standpoint.
Irish Make Plans.
V The Irish party is planning to make a
big demonstration in Dublin while King
Edward is being crowned in Westminster,
to call attention to Ireland's estrangement
t this moment ot otherwise universal re
joicing throughout the British empire. A
special meeting of the party has been
called for next Tuesday in the House of
Commons, and a declaration will be drawn
up stating why Ireland refuses to partici
pate In the festivities, and In arranging for
coronation day a protest meeting In the
(clty hall of Dublin.
Two members of the party, In defiance of
the general sentiment of their colleagues,
have accepted Invitations for the corona-
', tlon. Both are Ulster men. One is Dr.
Thompson, an ex-naval officer: the other Is
Eamuel Young of Belfast, a distiller.
j Great sympathy Is felt for the countess of
Essex, nee Adele Grant, who went to Paris
for a final fitting of a matchless series of
gowns to take the shine out of everybody,
,but broke down under the ordeal, and Is
coming back to London In an Invalid car.
It Is doubtful If she can even appear at the
coronation ceremony.
Princess Hatzfeldt, born Huntington,
gave a very smart dinner at Clarldge's, but
In going down stairs the prince hud an at
tack of heart failure, which at first caused
alarm. He could not go to the table, but
the dinner proceeded, with the princess
looking extremely handsomo In white, with
, a splendid emerald butterfly broach and
Innumerable diamonds. The only other
Americans in the party were Mrs. Leggett,
Iter daughter and Mrs. Cornwallls West.
Mrs. Bradley Martin will give another
big dinner June 23. but cannot hope to
beat the record of a royal princess and
four duchesses who were among her guests
June 4.
Mrs. John W. Markay. ' who now has
with her Mr. Mackay, her husband, and the
rrlnceas Calatro Colonna. her daughter,
will give a party June 25, at which Calve
will appear, Caruso, the tenor, about whom
"smart" London baa gone crazy, Kubellk
and Plancon.
Among the recent American arrivals are:
F. C. Havemeyer, Mr. and Mrs. Perry
Tiffany, Mrs. Ogden Armour and Mr. and
Mrs. P. M. Lydle. All are at Carlton,

of every detsil of the great coronation

Mme. Sarah Bernhardt bitterly opposes

LONDON, June 15. (New York World

that there Is a hitch In arranging the
American stall to be presided over by Mrs.
Choate at the coronation bazaar next
month in botanic gardens because somo
of the prettiest American girls who by
right should be assigned to this stall have
promised their services at other stalls.
How the difficulty will be surmounted re

Counsel Makes Objections.
MANILA, June 15. When the criminal
suit brought by Benito Legarda, a Filipino
member of the civil commission, against
the newspaper Freedom, for having pub
lished a libelous article from another news
paper of Manila, came up for hearing last
week, counsel for the editor of Freedom
objected to Judge Rhode, before whom the
suit hi to be tried, on the ground that
when Rhode was a private attorney he bad
addressed approbrlous epithets to the editor
of the paper and declared that he would
not rest until be had landed him In prison.
Judge Rhode admitted having made this
statement, but tsld he thought he was ca
pable of trying the case fairly.

Coal Men in Bituminous Fields Assist 1
Anthracite Striken,
President Gllday Thinks Collieries
Will ffooa Bcitln to Fill with
Water and Timbers Will
Drain to not.
WILKESBARRE, Pa., June 15. ratrlck
Gllday, president of the Central Pennsyl
vania bituminous district of the United
Mine Workers of America, who came here
to consult President Mitchell on a matter
local to his district In a talk with the
correspondent of the Associated Press to
day gave an Insight as to what the soft
coal miners in his territory are doing to
help their brother workmen in the anthra
cite field. Mr. Gllday said there are 42,
000 sort coal miners In his district and
every one of them is taking a deep Inter
est In the struggle now going on In this
region. On the second day of the strike
Mr. Gllday sent out Instructions to every
check welghman and pit committeeman at
the mines In his district to prevent the
shipment of soft coal Into anthracite terri
tory and thus far he said, very little coal
from his district has taken the place of
"There have been only four attempts by
unionized mines to send soft coal to the
anthracite markets," he said. "One order
was Intended for Mount Carmel, Pa., two
for Philadelphia and one for New York.
As soon as our men at the mines learned
the intended destination of the coal we
requested the mine owners not to send it
and they complied with the request. We
are not Interfering with the normal ship
ment of soft coal."
Will Do Told.
President Gllday ssld he had no personal
knowledge that the other bituminous presi
dents were doing the same as himself but
he felt sure they were. There Is some soft
coal coming Into the anthracite market
from central Pennsylvania, Virginia and
West Virginia, but it is mostly of nonunion
production. When asked regarding the feel
ing In bis territory as to a general strike
to help the hard coal miners Mr. Gllday
said: "Our men will do whatever Presi
dent Mitchell says. They can have our
financial support and If Mr. Mitchell sees
fit to ask our men to lay down their picks
they will do It promptly. I do not be
lieve however, there will be a general
strike of the soft coal miners because the
anthracite men are going to win without
How They Hope to Win.
Asked as to how the miners expected to
win in view of the fact that they have
practically reached the limits of their re
sources In this region in pressing the op
erators and the latter still stand out firmly,
he replied:
"By the slow destruction of mine prop
erty. By that I mean that If they do not
give the men the hours and pay they ask
for, they will not consent to go Into the
mines and preserve the operations.
"The collieries will nil if the strike is
not soon ended, and the mines will begin
to squeeze and cave in. All the tlmbermea
are out and the timber which holds up tho
roofs of mines win soon begin to give
way. These squeezes will cost thousands
of dollars to repair and probably be the
cause of the abandonment of many costly
operations. When the Investors' pockets
begin to feel It, a change In the attitude
of the operators will come, and the miners
can wait for the change."
Gllday's Mission to Wllkesbarre.
President Gllday's mission here was to
get President Mitchell's consent to con
tinue the strike against the Sonman Shaft
Coal company, near Portage, Pa., and also
the financial support of the national or
ganization. He received both. The strike
at that place was Inaugurated on April
16, because the company would not recog
nize the union and sign the wage scale
About 150 men are involved.
The strike at the Bloomlngton mines
near Phlllipsburg, Pa., has been settled
and the men will return to work tomor
row. Five hundred men struck there last
Tuesday because four men would not join
the union. The four men have quit work.
There were no developments here today.
President Mitchell was In frequent tele
graphic communication with his men in
the west on general organization work. He
had no information to impart on either
the strike in this region or the West Vir
ginia suspension. The delegation of Illinois
miners' officials who are coming to see
President Mitchell will not arrive until the
middle of the week. Much Interest was at
tached to their visit, as It is expected
they will bring Information regarding the
advisability of calling out of the soft
coal miners. President Mitchell says they
are coming merely to discuss some local
difficulties In their state.
Strikers Hold Meetings.
There were meetings of strikers through
out the region today, which were attended
by fire bosses. Some of the labor leaders
say that nearly half of the Are bosses
till at work promised to stop work to
morrow, but this could not, be confirmed.
President Mitchell knew nothing about the
number of men who Intend to quit.
There were two meetings of railroad men
today, one at Ashley and the othor at
Kingston. The Ashley meeting condemned
the action ot twenty-one Jersey Central
men, who had been laid off on account of
slack work, for taking the places of strikers
In the Lehigh and Wllkesbarre mines,
which are owned by the Jersey Central com
pany. Representatives of railroad men from
Sunbury, Pa., to Binghampton, N. Y., at
tended the Kingston meeting. Regulations
were adopted sympathizing with the strik
ers. Jasper Clark of Toledo, O., national
president of the Teamsters' association, ar
rived here tonight to look Into the local
teamsters' strike. He will have a confer
ence with President Mitchell tomorrow.
Ask Help of Railroads.
CLARKSBURG. W. Va.. June 15. An
effort Is being made to Induce the railroad
men to refuse to handle coal mined In
this district. Success in this would mean
a complete suspension of mining. There
Is some little uneasiness among operators.
Organizers will leave this Held tomorrow

Elklns syndicate. Mother Jones and others

Commerce, today made public the follow
ing Interesting extract frtm "Commercial
Relations for 1901," concerning the trale cf
the United States with Russia lust year:
Consul Heenan of (Jdeses. savs that the
sale of agi lcuttural machinery Hnd imple

Hula In llf'l than during any year on
record. The effect of the increased tariff
on our machinery Imd not et been felt
and one American til m ulone dirt a busi

clly of Odessa has been a heavy put dinner
of ot.r goods In connection with the new
public hospital now under construction.
Among the articles bought were 1.6oo radi
ators for heating purposes; these tame
under the Increased tariff on American
manufacture, and the town authorities ap
pealed to the minister of finance to per
mit the radiators to enter at the duty
which prevailed at the time of purchase,
as they were for a public Institution in
tended for the poorer classes. The request
was refused. Agricultural machinery of
certain kinds, however. Including steam
threshers Is admitted free, and our har
vesters, binders, mowers, reapers and
horse rnkes are so favorably known as lo
defy Competition. On the whole, American
plows, drills. seeding machines, corn
planters, cultivators, lnrm wagons, fodder
choppers, etc., are not to be tound In Hun
sla. The consul says there Is no reason
why they should not meet with a ready
sale, exctpt plows, whlr.h cost more than
the Uerman or Russian article.
On the other hand, Consul General Hol
lowa at St. Petersburg, says our plosrs sre
generally used In Siberia. The consul gen
eral adds: '
As a rule Russians prefer American
Roods and machinery, whlfh command bet
ter prices here than similar goods made In
any other portion of the fiorld. The fact
that a man la a citizen of tie United States
and has American goods lor sale Insures
him nn audience with hlgl government of

that many of the business men of Russia

are granted by German firms give this
country a great advantage In commerce.

Known they have the preference because
of their superior finish and quality. The
Germans have been specially ttctlve since
the retaJlatory duty was placed on our
goods by the Russian government, and
they have been successful In obtaining a
number of orders that otherwise would
have gone to America. Besides agricultural
machinery we send Russia typewriters, bi
cycles, saws, steel rails, cotton, rosin and
hickory lumber for wheels, etc.
American exporters should remember
that everything printed In Russian must
undergo press censorship before It is ad
mitted to tne country. American export
ers who desire to circulate in Russia ad
vertising matter printed In the Russian
language should address a petition tojUiunt
Alexander MouravlefT, chief of the central
committee of foreign censorship, describ

which admission is desired, and requesting
permission to introduce the same into Rus

Russian or French; It should also bear rev

MANILA, June 15. Speaking at the West

here last week. Acting Civil (inv.m.
Wright said he did not think "the fight

Irreconcilable as It appears to be, that the

Speaking at the same dinner Colonel
Charles A. Woodruff, head of the subsist

"The graduates of West Point may be
charity boys but In the Mexican war these
boys saved the American nation in money
alone more than the military school has
cost since its foundation. The boys led
2,000,000 men to victory In the greatest
of modern wars. The 'charity boys' have
all repaid their board and keep a thousand
fold, they can glory In the fact that wher-'
ever 25,000 American troops have faced
an enemy the commander of these men was
a West Point graduate.
"The established reputation of the boys
from West Point has become a synonym
for honor, Integrity and the highest credit
In the country. They have saved the coun

lives, and the 'charity boys' will no doubt
uphold In the present the supremacy of
the United States."

Manila say a report is current among their
countrymen that the five soldiers of the
Fifth cavalry who were captured by tho

Receipt of News at Lincoln.
LINCOLN, June 15. (Special Telegram.)
Word has been received of the dnath of
Genlo M. Lambertson of this city ln Chi
cago today. The brief telegram announced
heart failure ae the cause. Mr. Lambert
son left last Friday afternoon for Chicago,
accompanied by Mrs. Lambertson, to re
spond to a toast at the alumni banquet
of Chicago university and to argue a case
In the federal court, and at that time was
in good health. The remains will be
brought to Lincoln for burial.
The news of the sudden death was a great
shock to Mr. Lambertson'a many friends
here. He has not been as strong during the
last few months as usual, but his physi
cian did not anticipate any serious results.
He enjoyed outdoor life and was an active
member of the Lincoln Golf club, In fact
was entered to participate In a tourna
ment on the links yesterday afternoon.
Sketch of Ills Career.
Genlo Madison Lambertson has long
been one of the most prominent figures
at the Nebraska bar, having been associ
ate! with litigation that attracted atten
tion not only ln Nebraska but all over the
United States. One ot the great cases In
which be participated was that which In
volved the citizenship of Hon, James E.
Boyd and his right to sit as governor of
Nebraska. In this case he was associated
with General John C. Cowin and others
as counsel for Governor Boyd, and won
a most decisive victory before the supreme
court of the United States. As attorney
for the Interstate Commerce commission
he argued the Counselman case before the
United States supreme court. As United
States district attorney for Nebraska from
1878 to 1886 he handled many cases of Im
portance. Later he was one of the attor
neys for the receivers of the Union Pacific
road in connection with the foreclosure
and settlement of the government liens.
Mr. Lambertson procured a writ ot habeas
corpus from the United States supreme
court for the liberation of the Lincoln
city councilmen from the Jail at Omaha,
wherein they were held by order of Judge
Brewer for alleged contempt. Mr. Lam
bertson appeared at another time for the
city before the Interstate Commerce com
mission In Its suit to require the Union
Pacific railroad to deliver shipments from
San Francisco at Lincoln as cheaply as at
Omaha. The commission sustained the po
sition taken by Mr. Lambertson and the
Lincoln merchants were given the desired
relief. He participated in numerous legal

President Angrll Delivers Annnsl
llnccalnorrale Sermon
to the Class.
ANN ARBOR, Mich., June 15. President
Jsmes B. Angell of the University of Mich
igan tonight delivered the annual bacca
laureate Bcrmon to tho graduating class
In university hall. The hall was filled with
the graduates and their friends and the
undergraduates of the university.
President Angell suld:
"The new century Is opening with an
unprecedented Impulse to the higher edu
cation. The world has been startled by
a series of gifts of extraordinary magni
tude In the old world and ln the new for
the endowment of universities, the assist
ance of promising students and the en
couragement of Investigation and research.
Men have been very busy In devising vari
ous kinds of constitutional and legislative
machinery to secure wise legislation and
Just and effective administration. But no
Improvements In organization, no con
trivances, however Ingenious, csn Insure
us a pure democratic government unless
we hsve an enlightened public opinion and
a patriotic spirit guiding and sustaining
it In all Its life.
"It Is the true Ideal of the function of
a slate university that It should be placing
ln every considerable community In the
commonwealth one or more of Its grsduates
who Bhould through their life and labors
carry to those communities and for the
general good something of value that they
have gathered here. It Is In this way that
the university reimburses the people of ths
state for the generous outlay that they
make for her support. Go from here with
not the selfish spirit of the miser gloating
over what you have received from the
state as an acquisition to be used merely
for your own personal profit, but go,
rather with the grateful spirit of loyal
children of the state who will gladly
seize every opportunity to make a full re
turn to her for what she has done for you.
Go forth Into life, giving freely unto all
whatever Intellectual light you have es
pecially as you remember that giving of
that kind enriches, rather than impover
ishes tho giver himself.
"It Is to be hoped that ln pushing out,
however far the boundaries of knowledge
we shall never lose sight of our relations
to the supreme Intelligence. To trace His
footsteps, to understand the work of His
hand, to discover His methods In the cre
ation and development of all things. Is
the aim of all sincere and honest seekers
after truth. When we find these we find

sassinated with daggers. Subsequently two
of the Insurgent murderers. Tlmoto Dhalan
and Manuel Gonzales, were executed for
the crime, but they refused to tell whera
the bodies were hidden. Dr. Hamlet Jar
vls, the father of young Jarvls, who resides
near this city, undertook 'a search for the
body of bis son, employing scouts and
spending a great deal of money to that
end. A few months ago he succeeded In find

was brought here.

Ills Majesty's Phy
sician. LONDON, June 15. King Edward today
Is suffering from a chill which has pre
vented him from atteudlng today's church
parade of the Aldershot garrison.
The chill came as a result of the king's
prolonged stay outdoors last night upon
the occasion of the torchlight tattoo at Ald
ershot. The chill is a slight one, accom
panied by symptoms of lumbago. The
weather last nlnht was extremely cold and
It ralne.l at Intervals before their majesties
left the brigade recreation ground. King
Edward returned to his apartments chilled
from tho unwonted exposure.
These reports of his majesty's Illness
have naturally caused apprehension, but
there Is apparently no reason to anticipate
fcrlout, results.
An authentic statement from Aldershot la
to tho effect that King Edward la slightly
Indisposed, but that bis Indisposition la not
of a serious nature.
Sir Francis Laklng, physician in ordinary ,
to bis majesty, wassummoned to Aldershot
early this morning. He prescribed for the .
klqg and recommended that today be spent
ln aierfect quiet.
Queen Alexandra and the other mem
bers of the royal party attended the servloe
at the church, but remained ln the royal
apartments for the rest of the day.
H has been learned that the king arose
this afternoon. This Is considered a good
reason for hoping that his Indisposition is
only temporary.
Causes Kit rem Anxiety.
LONDON, June 16 King Eward's Indis
position was announced too late to become
generally known In London yesterday, but
considering tho near approach of the cor
onation, it is bcund to cause extreme anx
iety. The Court Circular last night publishes
tho following official announcement:
"King Edward waa unable to leave his
room today, owing lo an attack of lumbago '
caused by a chill."
Sir Francis Laklng was In attendance
upon his majesty Sunday night and tound
the king to be much better.
The latest expectation Is that King Ed-
ward will be able to attend the review
It Is understood that his majesty Is "run
down" to some extent as a result of his
constant attention during the last few
weeks to numerous state duties and obliga
tions, and ln spite of the hope expressed
at Aldershot Inst night that he would be
able to attend the review ot roops to be
held there today. It ia more than likely that
Sir Francis Laklng will forbid his majesty
to run any further risk, especially as the
weather continues to be cold and rainy.
Sir Francis will probably enjoin the king
to rest for another day.

The appearance of General Dewet at the
