DEAN OF CROWNED HEAD8
EUROPE PASSES AWAY.
Wae Father of the Queen or England,
Empress Dowager of Russia and ol
the King of Greece Prince Fred'
crick Suoscssor to the Throne.
Copenhagen, Denmark, Jan. 30.
Clnlistlun IX, tho aged king of Den
mark, dean of the crowned heads ol
Europe, father of King George o!
Greece, of Queen Alexandra of Great
Ilrllttlri and Ireland, and of tho dow-
ugor empress Mur'u Feodorovna oi
Russia, grandfather of King Haakon
VII f Norway, and related by blood
or by marriage to most of tho Euro
pean rulers, died with startling sud

known as Frederick VIII, will be pro
The following official bulletin wai
"His majesty died at 3:30 p. m.
Alter his majesty had brought tho '
morning's audience to a conclusion, ha
appeared to bo quite well and pro-'
:eedcd to luncheon as usual. Toward
the end ol tho meal ho gave evidence
of Indisposition and was compelled tuj
retire to bod at 2:30 p. m. His nmjes-.
ty passed away peacefully, the symp
toms indicating heart failure."
This bulletin tells concisely tho
story of tho 6cene, which found every
one, even those who realized tho in
creasing fcoblcness of the king, un
prepared for tbo sudden shock.
Tho king passed awuy quietly, sur
rounded by tho crown prince and tho
crown princess and their children and i
the dowager empress of Russia.
The death of King Christian has
plunged half tho courts of "Europe In-
to the deepest mourning and brought
a senso of political loss, as well as i
Blncero grief, to every one throughout
the kingdom of Denmark, reaching
oven to the humblest cottage, evi
dences of which are shown every
where. It has cast a pall over tho
palaces of tho monnrchs of Groat Brit
ain, Flussln, Norway and Greece
Tho quick taking away of the dis
tinct personality, who has for so long
been a center of Interest, not only in
his own country, but throughout the
civilized world, almost paralyzed tho
community and unnerved tho business
world of Denmark. Even now men of
affairs aro only recovering from tho
Knock and beginning to preparo for
tho changed conditions of affairs.
Every flag In tho city is at hair-mast;
every place of amusement Is closed
nnd the people walk tho streets as
though they wero passing through tho
chamber of death Itself.
New King Is Popular.
. The new king of Denmark, who will
ascend the throne in his sixty-second
year, bears tho weight of his years
lightly and Is almost as popular with
the poople of Denmark as was his
father. Little can bo predicted us to
the new king's public policy, nnd
therefore It is not known whether or
not ho will simply follow In the foot
stops of his father. Tho now queen.
Louisa, is reputed to be tho tallest
and richest princess in Europe. She
is a handsome woman, of blonde typq
and reflects the beauty of hor famous
grandmother, Deslreo. Clary, tho
tradesman's daughter who captivated
llonnpartc and married Marshal Ber
uadotte, who subsequently became
king of Sweden and Norway.
Frederick Is credited with having a
less determined character than his
father, while It Is whispered that the
now queen possesses tho stronger
character of tho two, and possibly
this latter fact will have considerable
influence on tho now king.

Cornel, Russia, Jan. 30. A battalion

plaint Is made of tho conduct of tho

took tho part of tho mobs, prevented
tbo firemen from extinguishing a lira
