VICTORIAS FUNERAL PROCESSION.
From 8tereograph,copyrtght. by Underwood A Underwood,N. Y.
London, Eng.—The funeral of King
Edward is declared to have been the
most imposing ceremonial Great
•Britain's capital ever witnessed. Thirty
thousand soldiers were brought from
Aldershot and other military camps to
line the streets wfc .n the procession
As there was no room to barrack
them over night, the soldiers bivouaced
in tho parks and strcct3. The city had
the appearance of an invested town
for two days. Some of the soldiers
slept in tents in the parks, while the
remainder lay down beside their guns
in the streets.
Scotland yard had all its detectives
on duty, and these were reinforced by
a hundred more from continental
cities. All visitors were watched, but
there was little real fear of anarchistic
attempts, because it was known that
every une under surveilance would be
deported from England if any trouble
were caused on this occasion, and it
was not likely that the persons of the
*5 anarchist type would give up volun
tarily their safest refuge in Europe.
The procession to Westminster hail

most on as great a scale as the fu
neral procession. The cortege included

KING EDWARD VII.
At a conservative estimate 700,000
persons passed through Westminster
hall to look upon the coffin of the king
J^ing in state. Barriers were built, by
nieans of which the people were
ushered through in four lines at the
rate of 18,000 an hour. The body of
the late king was not exposed to view.
Queen Mother Chose Hymns.
The hymns sung at the service at
Windsor were all of the queen moth

Father, While I Stray," "Now the La

Voice From Heaven."

Canon Wilberforce, conducted a short

members of both houses of parliament
attended this service.
Neither M. Loubet, M. Delcasse nor
