KINGS AND PRINCES OF ALL NATIONS FOLLOWED THE BIER
OF QUEEN VICTORIA. A SIMILAR SCENE WAS WITNESSED AT THE
FUNERAL OF KING EDWARD.
FUNERAL RITES OF
KING EDWARD VII.
London, i:ng. Tho funeral of King
Kdward is declared to huvo becn'tho
most Imposing ceremonial Great
llrltnln's capital ever witnessed. Thirty
thoufaand soldiers were brought from
Aldershot nnd other military camp3 to
lino tho ttrcets when tho procession
Ab there was no room to barrack
them over night, the boldlcrs blvouaccd
In tho parks and streets Tho city had
the nppearanco of an Invested town
for two days. Some of tho soldiers
alept In tents In tho parks, while- tho
remainder lay down beside their guns
In tho strcctB.
At a conservative cstlmato 700,000
perbons passed through Westminster
hall to look upon the colIln of tho king
lying In state. Barriers wero built, by
means of which tho people wero
ushered through In four lines at tho
rate of 18,000 an hour. Tho body of
the lalo king was not exposed to view.
Tho mourners saw only tho coffin,
with tho official regalia and heaps of
Queen Mother Chose Hymns.
Tho hymns sung at tho scrvlco at
Windsor wero ull of tho queen moth
er's choice They were "My God, My
Father, Whllo I Stray," "Now tho La
borer's Task Is O'er." and "I Heard u
Volco From Heaven."
Scotland yard had all Its detoctlvos
on duty, nnd these wero reinforced by
a hundred inoro from continental
oltlos. All visitors wero watched, but
thoro was Httlo real fear of anarchistic
attempts, because it was known that
every ono undor Eurvcllance would bo
doported from England If any troublo
wero caused on this occasion, rind It
was not likely that tho persons of tho
nnarchlBt typo would glvo up volun
tarily their safest refuge In Europe
Tho procession to Westminster hall
May 17 for tho lying In state was al
most on as great n scale as tho fu
nernl procession. Tho cortego Included
King Georgo and all tho foreign sov
ereigns on horseback, and tho queen
mother and tho royal ladles lu car
riages. When tho funernl procession startod
every street car In Loudon camo to n
standstill for a quarter of an hour. All
tho public houses In London wero
closed whllo tho procession was pass
ing. No Distinction Shown.
Thoro wbb no distinction as to per
son nor wero there any ticket privi
leges for tho lying In state In West
minster hall. All had to tako their
turn in lino.
At St. Gcorgo's chapel, at Windsor,
from whenco tho body waB carried to
Its llnal resting placo tho carved
stalls wero removed In order to glvo
placo to timber seating, Otherwiso
not a tenth of those entitled to attend
would havo been ablo to enter. The
chapel was draped with violet hang
ings. Tho sorvlco held In Westminster
aoboy did not form nny part of tho
loyal funeral. It was a memorial
benlco held especially for those mom
born of tho house of lords nnd house
of commons, who wero unnblo to go
i:iectrlc standards were fixed around
tho place In Westminster hall whero
tho catafalque Btood Tho public was
admitted until ten o'clock at night.
Tho catafnlquo occupied tho spot on
which Gladstone's catafalque stood.
The Court at Windsor.
Tho coffin waa sealed and draped
ind surmounted by boiuo of tho royal
regalia and King Edward's flold mar
Tno court removed to Windsor tho
day before tho funeral. Tho arch
bishop of Canterbury, nsslsted by
Canon Wllborforcc, conducted a bhort
servico at Westminster hall on tho ar
rival of the body on May 17. Tho
members of both houses of parliament
ntletided this service.
Kept Away by Kaiser.
Neither M. Loubet, M. Delcasso nor
M. Clemcncenu formed part of tho
French mission to attend the funeral
of King Edward. Piemlcr IJriand In
tended to go, but nlso gavo up the
Idea, owing to tho fact that Emperor
William was there Under these cir
cumstances tho mission was purely
formal. It consisted of M. Pichon,
minister of foreign affairs; General
Dalstcln, military governor of Paris;
Adtnirnl Marquis and an nttacho rep
resenting President Falllcres.

Ex-President Hooscvclt, who was

Queen Mother's Grief Deep.
The successive delays In the remov

bedroom whcio ho died to tho throno
room at Buckingham palace wero duo
to Queen Alexandra's reluctanco to al
low tho body to bo removed from tho
proximity of her own apartments.
All arrangements had been mndo
for tho reception of tho body in tho
throno room and notices wero issued
to memboro of tho housohold thnt

During the later years of tho king's
life ho nnd the queen wero on tho
most excellent terms of friendship
nnd good feeling. Indeed, It 1b no ex
aggeration to say they wero deeply at

King's Consideration for Consort.
For years they had been, to quote
an informant of credit, "tho best of
pals," nnd whllo the inclusion in tho
ilt published in tho papers of a house
party at Saudrlngham of a certain
woman's name caused some astonish
ment in general society, there was
considerable tho more astonishment
among thoso In the Inner circles of
couit llfo at the efforts made by a
foiclgn ambassador to suppress any
mention of tho woman's natno in tho
list of guests who wero Invited to
meet the king at his country house.
Queen Alexandra herself, by a loiter
which tho London Times described as
artless, has shown how deeply she Is
affected by the death of her consort.
Authorltntivo details of what passed
on the day of Queen Alexandra's rei
turn to England show In what regard
King Edward held his queen.
On that Thursday beforo his death
Edwatd was continually speaking of
her majesty to his entourage In tho
morning ho announced his intention
to go to tho station to meet her on
her nrrlval, and when llo was forced
to bow to tho advlco of his physicians
in this matter he said ho would at
least meet her at tho head of tho

N lnstnnco of rare personal
bravery, in which a man's
coolness nnd prompt no
tion cnnblcd him to turn
tho tables on his enemy
Just in tlmo to savo hla
life, Is thus told by a vet
eran: "The morning of December
31, 18C3, Is recalled as a time that
tried tho mettto of tho soldiers who
wero engaged in tho battle of Stono
river, when tho Union linos woro
broken, tho teams stampeded to tho
rear and stoppod nt the crossing of
Stowart'a crock, a rough steep-bank
stream. Tho bridge on tho Nashville
pike waB tho only placo of crossing
for qulto a distance in each direction
and thero wbb a closo rnugo fight for
tho possession of It, with the confed
erates gaining and tearing up tho
floor of tho brldgo, cnpturlng tho men
and teams and marching them south
about a mile Our cavalry hnd at
tacked our captors, during which
closo range fighting occurred often.
During theso fights thero wero many
lncldontn, both humorous and pathetic,
that will novcr lenvo tho memory of
thoso who wero engaged In them. A
soldier, Isaac H. Miller, driving a two
horse team hauling tho butcher's out
fit or tho Gen. Jeff C. Davis division,
wns on his wagon, waiting for a
chanco to cross the bridge; and whllo
a hand-to-hand fight was going on a
confederate cavalryman pointed n ro
volvcr nt Miller, snapping It sovornl
times, but It failed to go off. Whllo
ho was roplaclng It in his right boot
leg and drawing another from tho left
bootleg Miller sprang from his sent
and seizing a musket lying on tho
ground used It for n club, striking the
mnn on the side of tho head and
bringing him to tho ground. Miller
took tho revolver from tho cavalry
man's hand nnd, remounting his
wagon, coolly nnd deliberately drove
away as If nothing unusual had hap
pened. The last wo Raw of Miller's
victim ho was still on tho fjround."
