KING AND QUEEN IN GREAT PARADE PROCESSION OF GREATER PRO. PORTIONS THAN THURSDAY. THE MASSES GET A GLIMPSE. A More Extended Route , Including a Circuit of Some of the Most Popu lous Districts of the Capital , Is the Scene of Friday's Line of March. London , June 23. King George and Queen Mary toda showed themselves to the mosses ns distinct from the more favored classes who were able to obtain access to the circumscribed area ot yesterday's pageant. Today's procession was on an even grander scale than that ot the corona tlon. The route was more extended , Including a circuit of some of the most populous districts of the capital , the crowds that looked on were corro spondlngly greater and their majesties were accompanied by larger escort The scenes along the route were , tea a great extent , a repetition of those yesterday , with a much greater crowd of spectators. The procession began to form In the yard of Buckingham palace and the adjacent streets at 9 o'clock and two hours later It was under way. Between lines of cheering thousands the royal party made stately progress from Buckingham palace by the way ot Constitution hall , Piccadilly , Trafal gar square , through the city , over Lon don bridge by Dorrough road and Westminster bridge , thus making a complete circle. The pageant Included four full squads of cavalry , representing all branches of that arm of the service , lite guards , dragoons , hussars and lancers , each accompanied by Its own band and a section of horse artillery , These were followed by all the nav al and military aides de campe on duty , the war office staff , deputations of foreign officers , the royal suite , the members of the royal family and the foreign princes , and the colonial In dlan escorts , who immediately preced ed the state carriage. In the royal equipage with the king and queen , rode Field Marshal Kitch ener and the bearer of the royal stan dard. The royal escort brought up the rear. Many Thousands See It. Seats for many thousands had been erected along this long route and the greeting to the king and queen was indee'd'a royal oiie" . They received ft great welcome from the visitors In the hotels , from the stands of Picca dilly , Trafalgar square and the Strand ; from the business men of London proper , who had brought their wives and children to he city for this day , and again from their majesties' humbler subjects , south of the river. The decorations of yesterday re mained In Piccadilly and those in the other streets tra versed were not less spectacular. Except for the absence of the gold coach , the cavalcade was more bril liant than that of yesterday and the stands along the route certainly made a brighter appearance. Those on Con stitutional hill , overlooking the palace garden , were filled with uniformed of ficers from every part of the world , who had come to London to honor Britain's king with their daintily dressed ladies. During the early morning the sky was overcast and occasional drizzling showers were keeping the spectators in doubt whether it would be neces sary to raise the umbrellas. However , there were no heavy showers as In the early hours yesterday. Great Show of Soldiery. Almost exactly at the appointed hour , the colonial and Indian contin gents which were to lead the way over the seven-mile route formed on Vic toria embankment and proceeded up the Mall , past Buckingham palace to Constitution hill and Hyde park cor ner. It was a wonderful display of soldiery that preceded the carriages , exhibiting all the cavalry uniforms oJ the empire. A contingent ot Canadians escorted the first carriage , occupied by Sir Wil fred Laurler , premier of Canada and Premier Fisher of Australia. This was followed by other carrlag 11 es carrying Premier Morris , of New Foundland , Premier Boath of the un ion of South Africa. Premier Ward , ol New Zeland , the governors and com mlssloners of smaller colonies , each escorted by troops from their respect ive colonies. They were followed by the ever pop f > J ular troopers , the Northwest mountec ' police and an African force organlzec on similar lines. n The colonials in royal carriage ! and wearing uniforms and decoration ! [ e came next and were cheered all aloni the line. For plcturesqueness the Indian section te tion , next in line , could not bo ex celled anywhere In the world. Tin Indian cavalry In the most gorgeou silken uniforms and turbans , wearlni In medals won on the field of battle preceded the carriages in which wor te the ruling Indian Princes and potet 10 tates. The latter were fairly welghte 10n down with Jewels of enormous value nid id Their costumes , Including turbans an Is- tunics , were of every hue. They r < liS celved a hearty reception at whlc ai- they were visibly pleased. aim m , London Enjoys the Sight. is Although enjoying the spectacle a Jll Londoners always do , the people wet out today to see their majesties an VACATION TIME ( Copyrtght. 1311. ) when a salute fired by a battery in Hyde Park announced that the king and queen had left the palace there was rush on the part of those who had not already obtained places to points from which they might get a glimpse of the imperial ones. The royal procession was made up much as on yesterday though somewhat long er ns It Included many who before were In attendance at Westminster ab bey. bey.In In advance was a long line of troop ers and officers , Indian , colonial and British , all brilliantly uniformed. A drizzling rain fell as the royal car riage , drawn by eight cream colored steeds , slowly came up Constitution hill , but it did not dampen the en thusiasm of the crowds who were there to give the sovereigns their first welcome since coronation day. How Queen Is Dressed. The king wore a field1 marshal's unl- ) rpi with a sash of the-Order of the arter. The queen was dressed in white and lue sash of the Order of the Garter. Her hat was trimmed with ostrich eathers In two shades of blue. From nd to end of the long route their majesties received a notable spontane- us and loyal welcome. Following the sovereigns was a car- iage containing the Duke of Con- aught and the dutchess , princess , enerals and officers of state , includ- ng the Earl of Granard , the Duke ot Norfolk , the military attaches , among hem Major S. L. H. Slocumb , of the imerlcan embassy. The procession stopped at Waterloo lace to receive an address from the ouncll of Westminster city and at ther points to accept addresses from Ivic bodies Winston Spencer Churchill , as home ecretary , attended. Details of Yesterday's Crowning. Here were some of the details of esterday's ceremony : King and Queen Enter. At a few minutes after 11 o'clock a anfare of trumpets announced the ntrance of the king and queen. Again every one arose to their feet. The scene was marvelously impres sive as the leading figures emerged rom the robing room. Many scarcely restrained themselves from cheering , but the joyful notes of the initial an- hem "I Was Glad , " Intoned by the choir , suppressed the impulse. Lining the avenue of the approach ; o the throne were the picturesque 'eomen of the guard In their scarlet uniforms and carrying their pikes , a company without whom no British cer emony of state would be complete. First entered a little group of the clergy. Then came the chaplains ol the chapels royal , the dean of West minster , the archbishops of Canter bury and York , the bishop of London , and other bishops. Next , moving with great deliberation , five pursuivants followed by heralds in quaint medieval costumes , then the officers of the or ders ot knighthood , then the function aries of the royal household , alto ether an impressive and picturesque band. Queen's Wonderful Gown , The queen's regalia was borne bj various nobles , and finally the queer herself , in her wonderful coronatioi gown with the Jewels of the Garte presented to her by the Marys of th' ' empire. Her long purple train , em broldered in gold was borne by si : young women , daughters ot earls. Then the queen was followed by th mistress of the robes , the ladles of th bed chamber and the maids of honoi After the cortege of the queen , th king's regalia was carried by the hlgl est nobles of the kingdom attended b their pages. After them walked th king In his crimson robe of state , th train borne by eight nobles of big rank , the Collar of the Garter aroun his neck and on his head the cap c state. Following htm more court dl nltarles and gentlemen In waltln completed the procession. Their majesties passed their throne ! and proceeded to the chairs of state on the south side of the altar , where they knelt at the footstools. On the king's right stood the lord chancellor , the lord great chamberlain , the lord high consollor , the earl marshal and the garter-at-arnis and the noblemen bearing the swords ot state , and on either side of his Episcopal support ers. ers.Tho The dean of Westminster , wearing a cape of crimson velvet , took his place on the south side of the altar. The archbishop of Canterbury was on the north , beyond him the' archbishop of York and the bishop of London with twenty-one other bishops , all in con vocation robes. Rising , the king replaced the cap of state , which he had removed while kneeling. A Service 1,200 Years Old. Then the service proper began. The ancient ceremony familiar for 1,200 years , was performed with the same symbols and th ? recital but Uttle changed. It was the ancient scene with new actors. The archbishop of Canterbury pre sented the king. Facing the four sides of the abbey , he announced : "Sirs : I here present unto you King George , the undoubted king of this realm. Wherefore all you who are come this day to do your homage and service , are you willing to do the same ? " "God Save the King. " As the voice of the archbishop , sounding strangely loud In the Impres sive silence that had fallen on the august assemblage , died away , the spell was broken by the blast of the trumpeters and a mighty cheer ot "God save the king" fairly shook the great edifice. Cheers followed and , escaping the walls of the abbey , were echoed and re-echoed by the throng outside. Then followed the various rites. Two bishops sang the litany and the communion was recited. Reverently the 'archbishop placed the crown upon the king's head. Again the trumpets sounded and once more the abbey resounded with cheers and the cry "God save the king. " Editors to Nlobrara.
