LONDON , Juno 20. ( New York Herald
Untile Special to tlio BKK.J In western
phrase , literally and not metaphorically ,
the ton was painted red all ttio evening.
Iiosltlvely 100,000 red fuses burning In the
city , on the embankments and thoroush-
fares , In the. hands of Immense masses of
flight-seers , who obstructed c\ery where
rrhlcular tralllc and the fllduwalks. By day
light everywhere was to bo seen to-day red
cloth , principally from windows otT the line
of the procession , and on the balconies and
platforms along which It Is to pass. Nearly
all the myriad Illuminations have been this
evening rohcarsed. London at 10 p. in ,
looked , from Primrose hill , tit John's wood ,
us If between Victoria tower , parliament
houHcs and St. J'aul dome immense tires
were consuming the shopn and the mansions.
These Illuminations are , In many instances ,
costly and elaborate , but , to be frnnk , are
conventional and commonplace. The elec
tric light is not used. Hundreds of building
reproduce the faded candle and oil lamp's
glories , in colors , clusters and alphabetical
arrangements , which belonged to the old
Cremorne Krdeus and the Vaux hall and
Nlblo's gardens in your elty at the time Vic
toria was crowned. American Inventions
and originality of design arc largely lacking
in the London Illuminations. The mottoes
are trite. Flags are displayed and grouped
without taste.
That which ought to strike many foreign
visitors who walk the professional thorough
fare Is nn appearance of London being In a
state of beige , that Londoners are being pto-
tccted against themselves and disloyalty ,
against the possibilities of felonl/ed Watt
Tylers and Jack Cades. Along Piccadilly ,
St. James , Waterloo Place , etc. , and oven In
the ndjicent sldo streets , extra shutters , now
fastenings and boarding or , as called here ,
hoardings have been extensively erected.
The shopkeepers have not forgotten the
Sunday and Saturday orgies on the days last
year when looting was coincident with , al-
pcrhaps not the result ofrealistlc processions.
Your reporters have found great symptoms
of uneasiness among the people about the
coming events of jubilee day.
At least : iooo,000 people will endeavor to
sqnee/e themselves Into nreas calculated to
comfortably fuinlsh standing or spectators'
room for less than 1,000,000. The balconies
meant for families will bo used by packed
slght-soers. At least 5500,000 have been paid
for seats on Improvised stands and ampul-
thcateia hastily built of green wood.
Some sensation was created at the abbey
to-day by the return of tickets by all the
Catholic peers , commoners and many guests
Of that faith. Several Irish guests have
Joined the I'arnellltcs In also withdrawing.
About half of these absentees will be at a
musical high mass at the cathedral at Ken
sington at 10 a. in. A covered canopy has
been erected from High street to the front
entrance , about fifty > nrds. I found
the gorgeous sanctuary had been
fitted with two thrones , the right one
to be occupied by Monsleuor
Ruffs Scllla , envoy extraordinary from the
pope to the queen , and ttio left one by Car
dinal Manning , who , surrounded by his can
ons and monslcnors train , will bo carried by
the eight-year-old Lord Ohtagan , son of tlio
late Irish lord chancellor. On the altar will
bo the Lord Itlshopof Northampton , assisted
by Iluv. Lord Charles Thynno nnd the Lord
liisliop of Amycla , assisted by Hov. M. Fan-
nlng. Among the congregation will bo
representatives of the principal Catholic
families of Kugland , headed by the Duke of
Norfolk , Marquis Butte , Earl of Denbigh ,
Lords North and Howard , etc. , etc. After
mass will bo gl\cn an exposition of tlio
blessed sacrament , at which a "To Doum" will
be suiiK. At the end of the service "God
Save the Queen" will bo given on the organ ,
the whole congregation standing , and while
leaving "Cornatlon" march will be plaved.
Kev. C. Coo , of the cathedral , Informed your
rcoorter that the whole service had been sub
mitted toiler majesty , who appioved. Ho
addcd , : "She expressed herself pleased to
see her Catholic subjects colncldontly cele
brating the jubilee and thanksgiving at the
same hour as the Protestant services , con
ducted In Westminster abbey , "
American tourists familiar with the latter ,
oral ! having pictures .of Its interior , can
readily fancy how It will look to-morrow by
mentally placing the royal dais In the center
nave , between the poet's corner and oppo
site tlio entrance , while against the
sides of all the naves will bo rising
galleries , built from the lloor , covered
with red cloth , with seats twenty Inches
wide. Kiom these a tew only can see well ,
but all can hear , provided theieis no suffoca
tion. To American visitors at the abbey In
past It would be absolutely unrecognizable
It looks as If the queen were going to lay the
foundation stone rather than take part in the
solemn ceremonies within "tho walls. They
have looked down upon historic scenes some
six hundred years. For all that the
abbey will have to do with the ceremonla
the | quern fmlicht as well have had 1
performed In the main building of the
American exhibition , and really spectators
outside the abbey will to-day more graciously
illustrate the victorious era than tlioso with
in It.
One who is an arlbtocratlo tory , but an
enemy to flunkylsm , told mo thus : "imagine
to-morrow'a scene as It wHlhavo tobe handcc
down to posterity. The abbey Itself trans
formed portrays nobodies. Really great men
will be conspicuous by their absence. Conr
llunkys of the major and minor sort of obscure
members of parliament , their still more ob
scure wives , parliamentary clerks-these are
the personages who will llgure as representa
tives of all that is characteristic of the Itrlt
Ian nation in the jubilee j ear of Queen Vic
toria , "
A radical member of parliament is respon
filblc for this comment : "Probably the most
painful fact in connection with tbo jubilee
fete is the bitter cry which arises from nuni
bers of Industrious worklngmen who are
striving hard to make two ends meet ant
find themselves compelled to lose three o
four da > Votk with its concoraltau
pay. A poor remmnbranco of the jublleo
If It consists In less food and Increasei
worry. Even a brilliant Mat * pageant wll
not compensate for this. "
A gorgeous , poctio and realistic preacher
lo the London poor has Just made the follow
lug remarks which , during the procossloi
duubHcM well up iu 10,000
icarts : "Tho yards of sermons being
preached just now , in which her
majesty is buttered both sides bo-
; auso she has been a good wife and mother ,
ccpt the commandments , she prayed , tor
icing a good woman , are quite right , but
hero are millions of good women In
the world. There is nothing In the fact
.hat tlio sovereign has done her duty In
icr homo to go delirious with rapture about.
[ have looked hi vain In these sermons for
reference to her majesty's constant neglect
of her duties as a sovereign. To do one's
duty In that state of life Into which it shall
3 1 ease God to call us Is generally conceived
, o bo the Important Item In a Christian
career. The state to which Victoria was
called was that of queen. In that posi
tion she has of Into years stolidly refused to
do her duty. As a woman the queen Is
above reproach ; as a queen she is open to the
gteatest censure. "
I Pressl The queen this afternoon received
Phelps , United Mates Minister , at Bucklng-
liam palace lor the purpose of allowing him
to present President Cleveland's jublleo con
gratulations. Her majesty expressed 'her
sense of the kind feeling always manifested
toward her by the American people. Other
diplomats carrying congratulations wore re
ceived after the customary form.

'Millions of voices throughout her world

virtues of Victoria. The day marks a long
epoch in the political welfare of her realm.
The whole world sympathises with the festi
val , for the fame ot the queen's blessed rule
reaches every quarter of the globe. This
sympathy Is most cordially shared In by the
Austrian sovereign. The virtues of Victoria
throughout the whole of her life recall those
of our own great empress , Maria Theresa.

lesa. will bo blessed as long as history

ST. , June 20.- The Russian
newspapers , commenting on Queen Victoria's
Jublleo , say the Lirltlsh people's love for tholr
queen Is merited by the Internal reforms and
Improvements of the masses which have bcun
effected In Kngland during the fifty years of
her rulo. Some of the papers take occasion
to express regret that the relations between
Russia and hnglaud are not better , and hone
they will Improve and the two nations be

BOSTON , Juno 20. Some time ago the

old hall to-nluht b > those opposed to its occu
pancy by Englishmen.
Through EOIIIO mistake the hall wns not
opened until < J o'clock , when it was immedi
ately packed with people. Speeches were
made by John Boyle O'Reilly and others de

Cable Special to the BKK.J The Vassar-

the "Hall Columbia" bacholorcsses of arts and
all other feminine students In America , have
a jubilee trophy In the rank , given to-day at
Cambridge In the classical course to a girl ,
Miss Agnata Uamsey. She has beaten all the
male students In the classics , being the only
one of either sox to pass In the first division.
What Is additionally remarkable is that her
father , Sir James Ramsey , a Scotch baronet.
and her undo , Prof. George Hamsey , of Glas
gow university , each obtained first class In
the classics when they took degrees at Ox
ford. Miss Uamsey has just reached twenty
years , and several of her male competitors
were older. Her proficiency In Latin or
Greek was equal. Her male contestants
were gallant enough to cheer her name on
the list when It was nut up , aud doubtless
they are wondering if she will continue pro-
liclent in construing Ovid's "Art of Love. "

WASIIINOTON , June 20. [ Special Tele
gram to the UKK. ] Popularattotition having
been directed to the captured fiags in the
custody ot the war department , there has
been some Inquiry concerning the disposal
ot the flags captured during the rebellion by
the United States navy. The proposed re
turn of the banners captured In the field sug
gested a return ot tlioso taken on the water ,
and Secretary Whitney was called upon to
day for some Information as to their where
abouts. The democratic secretary of the
navy was r.ither nonplussed and after consid
ering a while he confessed that he knew
nothing about them. Ho added , however ,
with a smlli ) that ono thing was certain , ho
had given no order for tholr return to their
former owners. The question asked the
secretary was then put In succession to each
of the bureau ofilclals in the navy depart
ment until the startling fact
was developed that not one on duty then
present had the slightest idea of their where
abouts. It was suggested by the chief clerk
that three rebel naval fla s might bo In
the naval academy at Annapolis , but Prof.
Salny , of the naval department , In charge ot
the war records of the navy , who has written
a history of the naval academy , stated posi
tively that they were not at Annapolis. The
flags there , ho stated , wore tlioso captured
during the revolution and the war ot 18i2but
to his knowledge thoio were no rebel colors.
This is a strange discovery aud a most oin-
banassini ; ono tor all concerned , and when
the seriousness of the situation was finally
realised the oulv Idea that occurred to the
officials was tlmt piobably some of the repub
lican ex-secriiturie.s might know where the
flags wtro stored. The law of 1884 for the
preservation and p\hlbltlon ol captured flags
is the same for the navy as for the war de
partment , and there is considerable con
sternation in official circles over the new
complication to the atlalr by the Inquiries seton
on loot to-day.

that ho has knowledge of the Intentions of tin'

that the president does not Intend to fill the
vacancy just yet. Thcro Is no cause lor.

before the time for the meeting of the court
In tlu ; autumn. The president Is a\eise to
putting any " ( load timber" on the supreme
bench. Ho wants to make the very best se
lection possible , and as the appointment is
awarded to thn south , and It Is known that
the president locards Secretary Lamar as tlio
greatest representative of that section , there.
Is reason to believe he will makn the appoint
ment. The indications aio that Secretary
Lumar will accept the position , thouch ho
has reasons to believe that as long as ho lives
he can get any honor within the gilt of the
people ot Mississippi. It is believed by mauv
of his friends that a place on tlio supreme
bench would just suit him.

a number of inquiries as to the disposition
of the remains of the murderer. The body
of Gulteau was taken to tlio army medical
museum after the execution and placed In
the hands of Dr. SchafTcrt , who was at the
time the anatomist of the museum. Ho re
moved the soft parts of the body , and all the
bones and also the brain arn now at the
museum , though not on public exhibition ,
and never have been. It was supposed that
all the soft parts of the body were burned ,
as Is the usual course at the museum when a
bodv is prepared for articulation. The mu
seum authorities do not know whether the
sott paits weio destroyed or not. They say
that It Is very posslblu that Instead of destroy
ing the muscles and flesh of thn head and
neck after it was taken from the bones It
might have been preserved and set up. and
that Is probably what is referred to. But the
skeleton of Gulteau complete , and all ,
is now In the museum. Dr. Lamb , who per >
formed the autopsy on Gulteau's body , said
to-day : " 1 haven't thn least doubt tills thing
In Now York _ Is Guiteau's head. It Is genu
ine. Mr. ShatTcrt , the museum anatomist ,

DF.NVKII , June 20. [ Special Telegram to
the BKK.I About fifteen hundred specta
tors witnessed the second Denver-Hastings
game to-day , which , contrary to expectation ,
resulted In an embarrassing defeat to the
former , whose loss can be attributed to their
loose playing. O'Neill was behind the bat
up to the end of the fifth Inning , when an
injured finger compelled him to retire. He
was replaced by Meyers , who , Doing unused
to Hogan's delivery , could hardly hold the
ball , and consequently played poorly.
Hastings played a hard and careful game ,
their fielding and batting being excellent ,
only throe scattering errors being made dur
ing the afternoon. The battery , especially
the catcher , was the best that has visited
Denver lor some time. Score by Innings :

Xinv YOIIK , June 90. ( Special Telegram
to the Br.K. | Army and navy olllccr * In this
city and elsewhere are receiving circulars
from a Him of usurers In Wheeling , West
Virginia , who oiler to discount their ac
counts with the army or navy department at
Ihe exorbitant rnto of 3 per cent per mouth.
The firm which Is to eugago Iu this usurious
business signs Itself U. Forbes & Co. The
lit m announces that It Intends to do busi
ness "on the square" and at the lowest pos
sible rates. It rolers to any of the banks of
Wheeling any of the county or state officers
to J. J. Jncksnn , Judge ot thu district court
of the United States for the district of West
Vligliila , to J. N. Cauidcu , late United
States senator from West Virginia , and to
General B. F. Kelly of Washington. Ac
companying the circular is a private letter of
Instructions asking officers to bend
to the firm their accounts for
the month which they deslro
to discount , filled In and signed precisely as
they would be prepared for the paymaster.
Kuch account Is to bo endorsed In blank.
This linn suggests that It would bo agreeable
for It to have the officers draw the pay them
selves and in order to facilitate this It otTcis ,
upon naymcnt of Interest due and forwardIng -
Ing of next month's account , cndorspd In

Bated. By this little scheme an artnv or navy
officer can be kept continually Indebted to
these men , with the privilege of paying 20
per cent interest on his money every month
for the boon of constant slavery. Several of
ficers vt ho have received these circulars are
indignant at the Insult thus offered to the
service , and especially disgusted that a

induced to glvo his countenance to such a
A Fraudulent Pension.
CiiicAoo. Juno 20. [ Special Telegram to
the Bee. I Francis Patterson , better known
as Blind Patterson , who received over 513-
000 as back pension recently , has parted with
the money already. As soon as Patterson re
ceived his check , several Individuals became
interested in his behalf. A legal movement
was instituted to place Patterson and his
money In the hands ot a guardian. While
the proceedings were under way , Patterson
and his wife and daughter lied from thestatc ,
going to Troy , Pa. At Troy they were met
by Dr. A. N. Mills , and went to Wllllamsport ,
where the ccrtlficato of deposit of 810,000
on the Second National bank of Etinira was
turned over to Mills , hu holding power ot at
torney for the blind pensioner. AS
soon as the check of deposit came
to the Second National bink for
collection , Dvaid Pratt , teller of the bank ,
who had been appointed guardian of Patter
son , immediately made preparations for
overhauling the parties. At Koiiova , Pn. ,
he found Patterson and his wife and daugh
ter , but Mills had gene on to Washington
with nearly tlio entire amount of the pen
sion. When It became known that the Pat
tersons and Dr. Mills had fled fiom the city
an astounding state of affairs came to light
In connection with the Patterson pension.
Wllkes Miller , a well-known citizen , went
before Justice Galalln and made affidavit
that at the Instigation of Mills and on prom
ise of 81,000 it the pension was secured he
made affidavit that Patterson had sore eyes
while In the army. Now It appears that Pat
terson's blindness was caused by dlsoascaud
not by service in the armv and that the large
amount of pension received by him WAS se
cured by fraud , and the government will
have the task of arresting and punishing
every one connected with the fraudulent
transaction. _ _
