A More Extended Route , Including a
Circuit of Some of the Most Popu

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
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

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
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
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
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
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. "
