Royal Patient is Able to Smoke
and Takes Food.
DOCTORS NOW MORE HOPEFUL
.Condition of King Is Declared Even
More Satisfactory Than the Bul
letins Indicate Services of Inter-
, cession Held In All Churches.
.London , Juno 27. Those around
King Edward continue to bo aston -
Ishcd at his rapid recovery. The
slightly annoying symptoms men
tioned In the bulletin Issued at 11
o'clock last night are quite Inconsequential
quential compared to the fact , which
the Associated Press has learned , that
his majesty again took food last night
and was afterwards allowed to smoke
a cigar. Queen Alexandra sat with
her husband all the evening and only
left him after ho had fallen Into peace
The following bulletin was posted
at Buckingham palace at 11 o'clock
last night :
"Tho king has passed a fairly com
fortable day and has maintained his
strength. Ther.0 is a returning de
sire for food , which has been very
carefully given. There has been some
return of pain in the wound. "
Mention by the king's doctors of
the care with which food Is admin
istered to the royal patient and of the
return of pain in the wound can safely
bo taken as an earnest of their con
scientious intention to make public
the slightest adverse symptoms , how
The king's courage and good tem
per are remarkable and yesterday ho
personally wrote several telegrams
and one or two notes.
Looks After State Affairs.
As evidence of the ; king's persistent
refusal to efface himself from his con
nection with state affairs , and in corroboration -
roboration of the statement that the
physicians are satisfied with their
patient's condition , the Associated
Press loams that besides personally
opening telegrams Wednesday evenIng -
Ing , King Edward then insisted upon a
full inspection of the honor list. There
was one appointment of considerable
importance which had not boon defi
nitely decided at that tirade. The king
approved this nomination and gave
the final order to the department In
terested , thus saving one of the recip
ients of honors from severe disap
King Edward is better In every way
I' ' than ho was yesterday. The return of
pain in his wound Is not accompanied
by any appreciable increase of tem
perature. In fact , King Edward's
doctors are Inclined to regard the pa-
tlont's pain and his appetite as healthy
symptoms , although with the reserve
they have maintained throughout they
refrain from commenting thereon.
Following the expressed desire of
the Prince of Wales , the arrangements
for illuminating the city , which in
volved the costly erection of set
pieces for electric and gas lights , will
he allowed to remain and will be util
ized "immediately , it is authoritatively
announced , the king is out of danger. "
By the king's personal desire the
royal pardons of offenders In the army
will go into effect Just as If the coronation
nation had occurred. The last intima
tion suitably brought to a close the
day which was to have been notable
In English history and which , from
the view point of the public , has
passed In that mediocrity which la
attached to all things that are neither
.wholly good nor wholly bad.
The most striking feature of coronation
nation day , as It is still called , was
the universal substitution of services
of intercession for those of rejoicing.
.These . services occurred throughout
the country and on board the great
fleet that lies unrevlewed in Ports
mouth harbor. Yet even these lacked
patheUte and dramatic element. In
the face of the favorable bulletins ,
tears and litanies are obviously out of
Coronation May Be Quiet.
With the favorable progress of the
king there is mucji discussion as to
how the coronation will be effected.
While nothing has In any way been
definitely settled , It appears that King
Edward Is likely to celebrate this
event very quietly and with merely
the ceremony that attends the opening
of parliament. This consists of a
drlvo direct to Westminster abbey , ac
companied by a small consort , and a
speedy return to Buckingham palace ,
and it is rumored that no foreign
princes or envoys will be specially In-
ylted for the occasion.
Providing King Edward malntans
his present rate of Improvement , London -
don will soon bo emptied of Us holiday
crowd and 'tho proposed coronation
.will be looked forward to as an occa
sion for sedate thanksgiving , bereft

VOTE AGAINST GENERAL STRIKE.
811k Workers at Paterson Decide to
Remain at Work.
Patoraon , N. J. , Juno 27. At a moot
ing last night , In which were delegates
from all brunches of the silk Industry
here , it was voted not to order a gen
eral strike In sympathy with that pt
the dyijra * helpers , A full considera
tion whs glvon the matter and tUo
vote stood : /gainst a strike , 12 ; in
favor of a ptr ko , 8. The Socialist
Trade and Labor alliance withdrew
and did not voto.
It was generally argued that thou
sands out of work at this time would
do no good and would not hasten the
qnd of the dyers' helpers' strike. It
was contended that It would be bettor
for tliOko who could work to do so and
contribute toward the financial sup
port of those now out.
It Is expected that many weavers
and others that have not worked since
o week ago will now return to the
looms , the step having the approval
of the trades unions.
At a meeting earlier In the day ,
Strike Chairman McGrath made n bitter -
tor speech against the presence In the
city of the militia. Ho claimed the
local police were RUfllclent to preserve
order. He demanded that the soldiers
bo sent home , and went so far as to
attack their habits. The speech at
tracted the moro attention because
heretofore McGrath has been very
mild In his utterances and counseled
against any violence.
DEMAND OF THE MACHINISTS.
Includes the Discharge of Every Non
union Machinist and Helper.
Omaha , June 27. When the execu
tive committee of the Machinists'
union meets the officials of the Union
Pacific Railroad company It will
make the sweeping demand that cvery
nonunion machinist and helper in the
company's employ bo discharged and
his place filled by a member of the
The committee , which consists ol
three Omaha men and seven from
other towns , expects to confer with
the officials tomorrow.
The committee gives out the state
ment that it will not modify Its orig
inal demands and has no further
preparation to make before confront
ing the officials.
It Is not probable that 'tho company
will accede to the demand of the ma-
chlnlsts that all nonunion employes
bo discharged. It takes the position
that the union shall not dictate terms
to It , nor will It dictate terms to the
union. Its' ' officials maintain that tha
Lnion Pacific has not and is not now
fighting unions. It employs union
and nonunion men , but a majority ol
the former , and has always boon
known as a union road.
Miners Applying for Work.
Wllkesbarre , Pa. , June 27. The offi
cials of several mine companies In
this region are authority for tha
statement that the men are applying
to them dally for employment of any
kind. Among the applicants are near
ly every class of workers , including
miners , and it is said that nearly all
the companies have more men to draw
on than they can possibly need dur
ing the progress of the strike. The
majority of the companies that are
compelled to pump water from their
mines are working their engines and
machinery full handed , but some of
the'men are not as capable as thosa

FIVE KILLED IN MINE ACCIDENT.

Recover Body of Miner.
Dover , N. J. , Juno 27. Five men
were killed and several fatally In
jured in the Richard mine , about five
miles north of Dover , yesterday after
noon. Four of the men killed were

of a miner who lost his life in the
mine on Tuesday. The first of the ac
cidents occurred when John Morlch ,
Albert Davis and two other miners
wore loading cara In a level 770 feet
tilow ground. A heavy blast had
been set off about two hours before ,
and the men had been warned not to
go near the piano until the earth had
a chance to settle.
The warning was not heeded. A
slab from a sloping pillar fell on two
of the men. One was rescued badly
injured. The other man was forgotten
at first. Then another rescue party
wont into the shaft. A few minutes
later one of them , badly bruised and
cut , reached the mouth of the mine.
While they were trying to roach the
body of the first victim of the first ac
cident another body of ore had fallen
from the same pillar , burying four of
