LO.MION , Juno 21. [ Now York Herald
Cable Special to the BKI.J : The longest
day of the jear , but too short for the millions
of sight seers. "There they como ; hero they
are ; well , It's not much" such expressions
came from many of the several thousand
Americans who had mounted the street scaf
folds as pleasantly yet as gravely as had
King Charles and Louis XVI In their day.
Obeying Mother Goose thcso Americans had
Bunit "I've been to London to see the
queen. " Those few who weio In the abbey
looked disappointed , as did lilalno In the
nailery devoted to distinguished stiangers.
Ho looked as sleepy as Marco BozzaiH.
Was ho dreaming "of the hour when Eng
land's knee In suppliant bunt should trcmblo
nt his power1' Senators Kurne ; Halo and
Mcl'hcrson were there , each looking as If
wishing to address the atsemblai.'c on tonics
of the day. Minister Phelps looked nervous ,
ns If fiarlnc Lady Uandolph Chuichill.
Leonard Jerome's daughter was there , but
her husband not. Shn looked n duchess In
biscuit-colored silk gaure , alteinatlng with
fawn-colored corded silk and bonnet fawn-
colored tulle.
They all had tedious waits from about 3 tea
a quarter of 1 nothing butorttstlo and bu/z
nil that time. Too much red uniform , red
flaps and rod upholstery gave the sacred old
nbbey rafters too much of a Mcphlstolean
"At the conclusion of the royal game of
"pillows and kojs kissing" a came beloved
of American children inoved the most en
tertaining Incident ot the day. Outside at
the hotel windows , on balconies and Im
provised plank cnloslums , Americans had
bulled the prices of seats. To them 35 did
not seem much of a sum when enumerated
nsone guinea. Chicago tourists had cornered
not a few seats. Snmo had paid thousands
of dollars for lower rooms In the Grand
hotel , last autumn John Kussell
Young was lined a guinea per week for the
offense of taking his meats outsldo the hotel ,
That S20 a day hostelry was In the
luck of commanding a fifteen-minute
long continuous MOW of the procession ,
both coming and going. The gland
stand at the junction of Pall Mall and Corks-
pur streets commanding a similar view , was
the most favorlto American stand , An
American colonist had hired , two months
ago , the whole corner building named the
Waterloo house , for -,500. His timber and
carpenters cost S500 more. Ills rentals for
the day wore $0,000. The Amei leans seemed
most to cheer the crown prince. What
strength of he lacked they seemed to
supply , lie certainly looked a splendid man
in his white cuirassier uniform as a German
field maishal.
Probably next to the queen's escort ind
the crown prince , the queen of Hawaii was
the most noticed and cheered by
the crowd. Indeed , an immcnao number of
English who still bollevn that wigwams are
frcqent around New York and black mag
nates abounding In the states , took her for n
celebrated species of American rayalty.
Jubilee day closed without alarm or ma
terial accidents. It most wonderful incident
was that hitherto unprecedented sight of
Mohammedan , Uuddhlsi , Hindoo , Sikh and
Japanese princes , with Persian and Chlncsn
heathen magnates , stationed at the altar of a
Christian churcli ainlcably awa'tlng ' a Chris
tian prayer.
[ Tress. I The press Is requested to state
that the number of congratulatory tele
grams from public and private bodies Is
GO overwhelmingly largo that It Is Impossible
to answer them Individually. The queen Is
greatly touched and gratified by such ex
pressions of loyalty and devotion from all
classes of subjects. On the advlco ot Lord
Salisbury , jubilee honors will be conferred on
several liberal unionists. New peers to bo
created In honor of the queen's jubilee will
Include Sir \Villlam Armstrong , Sir James
McNaghton , McGercl Hong and lllght Hon
orable George Sclater Booth.
The first day of the fifty-first year of the
reign Queen Victoria opened with perfect
summer weather. Thousands of people who
yesterday selected locations along thu route
ol to-day's processions In order to letaln
them occupied them all night A steady
stream of carriages and pedestrians poured
. constantly all night until dawn thiough
the city from all directions toward West
End. At U o'clock the line of route was a
compact mass of people. Everybody , de
spite the discomfort of crowding , manifested
the utmost good humor. The scenn at West
minster abbey was most brilliant. Evorv scat
was Idled aim oveiy person was a distin
guished personage. Hseuiied as If every
locality the world over had smit ono or moro
of Its representative personages to do honor
to England's queen. Tlimo never , probablv

rajed. rtveiyman present entitled to wear

able.When the Marquis of Salisbury entered
and proceeded to tlic place set apart for him ,
ho vvaschetircd. When Gladstone was ob-
hervcd quietly dicing his way to his scut ,
lie was also eheorcit. Such was the eager
ness of these whn luul assured places In the
nudlcni'o at Westminster , to bo on hand , that
scores of lord- * and ladles repaired to the edl-
lice at unnecessarily early hours , and as
many of them wore admitted without having
partaken of any breaUfast , It was a strange
sight to sco and S'uuiwlch exchanged
in such a crowd , and eagerly used by num
berless of Uio aristocrats unable longer to
withstand thirst or hunger.

Composed ns It was entirely of sous , sons-in-

liantly uniformed and riding maunllicent
horses elegantly caparisoned , presented n
bplondld appearance and Inspired enthusiasm
uverv where.
All along the route when tlio queen came
In sight the cheering started up afresh , and
when shu had pissed a shoit distance It bc
came a mighty roar. The queen was mani
festly delighted. Her face wore constant
smiles. She bowed and thanked the people
and whenever she recognised any porjoti
she failly beamed with Joy. O\ei her black
costume the queen wore a white lace cown.
Her coronet vv.isot white netting or lace , with
nn Inwrought coionot oof diamonds. I'ho
procession was closed up by paitlus of llto
guards and Indian troops.
'Iho in ogress of thu rojal procession fiom
the palace to Westminster Abbey was ouo
continued ovation. Tremendous crowds
thronged the streets and houses , beats along
the route sold for live guineas each. On the
pioccsslon nearln the abbey tlio troops
saluted , guns were tired and bells of chinches
rung , and Hags were run up , the cheering be
ing continued until the queen had passed
into thu west door. Atter passing through
the vestibule her majesty was conducted to
the grand dais under the lantern towoi ,
where she was surrounded by thirty-two
members of the royal family. As the queen
entered the abbey the audience of 10,000
arose. Tlu peers and their wives were
seated in the south transept. The ambassa
dors and diplomatic corps were boated to the
right and loft of the peers. Members of the
commons wore placed In the north tiansopt.
Seats for thu relitnlug families of Europe ,
etc. , were within the communion rails. Al-
the great learned societies and corpoiatlons
wore represented , while notables of law , sci
ence , art , agriculture and vvorklncmcn's
representatives from all parts of the United
Kingdom had seats allotted them. There-
Ik'ious services in the abbuv In commemora
tion of iho queen's jubilee were conducted
by thu archbishop of Canterbury and doau of
Westminster. Nearly every dU'iiitaiy
of the established chuicu , however ,
was present , besides a great num
ber of distinguished clergymen belonging -
longing to other denominations.
At the conclusion of the services the queen
proceeded back to Uucklngham palace. The
queen's advent was arranged so she entered
the abbey precisely at noon. Dr. Bridge , or
ganist of thu nbbey , had for the occasion
specially trained n choir ot 250 vo'ces.selected '
Ironi the great choirs ot London , n num
ber of eminent sololbts , besides a largo ac
companiment of brass Instruments and
drums. Whun the clergy at the head of tlio
rojnl procession moved Into tlio church
the national anthem was rendered by the or
gan. The music was thrilling and tlio audi
ence rose as a unit and lout 10,000 voices to
the nlr to accompany the cnoir. The
ulfcrt was so grand , so profound , that
many persons wore moved to tears.
It was at this moment that the queen ap
peared within the doors. The singing of the
anthem ceased , and n processional march
from Handel , "Occasional Oiatorlau , " was
given by the oruan during the progress of the
queen and royal family to thu dais. The
queen occupied the coronation chair , over
the back of which drooped the royal robes of
btato , which the queou presently assumed
with the assistance of the mistress of the
robes. The abbey \ \ as now a bla/o of mag
nificence. On the right of the loyal dais
the lord chancellor In his magnificent
roDos of state and flowing wig ,
n mass of velvet and ermine , was seated.
Behind him sat 500 peers ot the realm and
their peeresses , attired In costumes of rich
velvet and sumptuous silk , iluhlnd these
sal the loid lieutenants heavy with robes and
Insignia ot otlico , and diplomats , whoso
bosoms were covered with decorations. On
thu left and facing the lord chancellor was
the speaker of the house ot commons , also
wearing his robes of ofllco , with a golden
macu before him. liehlnd him were mem
bers ot the house of commons and wives , all
richly arraj ed for thooccaslon. So , on cither
bide of her , the qutKin'n ojes fell upon two
brilliant masses , splendid In colors and
dai/llug with jewels. The tallerles , which
reached the lofty npse , were crowded with a
mass of black robed clergymen. Down the
nave they were greeted with n bright
array of military and naval uni
forms. Conspicuous amongst all this
brilliancy were tlio djuling Oriental
costumes of the Indian rajahs , sparkling
with precious stones. The rays of the sun
streaming through the closed windows gave
n rich and varli'd glow to the assemblage ,
which , In itself , was as picturesque as the
world has ever witnessed. The scone was of
more than regal splc-ndor , and the couit
otlidals who have seen both say to-day's
spectacln far exceeded that of the coionatlon
in maitnliicence.

dun hush fell uveiywhore when the queen
took a prayer book In her hand and bow ed
her head tor a short Interval In client prns er.
When they were seated the archbishop of
Canterbury nnd chnn of Westminster , who
had taken their places within tlio sacrarium ,
began the service by the asking of God's
bhwfing upon the queen. "To Deum Lauda-
mus' ' was then sum : by the choir to music
composed bv the prince consort , the queen
having requested this. The Lord's prajer
was bald , nud responses ( adopted to the
occasion ) were lutoncd. Three special
piujcrs were then offered. Following
tno prajers "PAaudiat To Domlni-s"
was sung with onran and brass
band accompaniment. The dean of West
minster advanced to the rails and rend the
lesson for the day ( First Eplstlo of Poler ,

Introduced. Two more special prajcrs for
the defense of tlio faith , tpirttnil welfare of
the Kingdom , nnd tor pcaco iiid love , fol

' 1 he ceremony throughout was most solemn
nnd Impressive , and was followed with the
closest attention by the queen nnd the o who
sat around her on the dils. Thu Indian

emerged from the nbbey. She resumed her
cirrlaso and returned to Uucklngham palace ,
this tlmo taking the route she went after her
coronation. When the royal procession
reached Parliament street it found the road
as densely crowded as boforo. and In some
places moru so. The grand

and alongside the Chapel lloynl , was a mem-
Diablo sight. Thu qucunlnratetuliy acknowl

Pall .Mall the noon-day scene was reenacted.
As the procession passed into St. James
street the queen took n long glance nud
smiled nnd smiled at nn aged lady who was
nt one ot the windows of St. James palace.
The aired ladv was thu duchess of Cambridge.
Passing up St. James street , the whole of
which was effusively decorated , the pageant
aznln turned Into Plead 11 Iv , which was liter
ally packed. The enthusiastic sightseers ,
not content with ono view , had to rush across
St. James and Green p-\rk to get another
view In Picatlilly. The swnvlng of the
crowdb In some places was terrllic until Wel

of thousands of people.
The queen seemed fairly overcome with the
lovalty displaved by her subjects
The procession reached Uucklngham
shortly after i ! o'clock and live minutes laier
her majesty passed Into the palace , amidst
the most tumultuous cheering , with her
escort of generals on either side. The
Murquls and Marchioness of Salisbury , who
had lain led to tlio palace bv ashoit route ,
were present to receive her. 'iho queen boio
the journey well and was seen boon after her

The other Americans piesent at the service
In the abbey were United States Minister
Lawson , Senators McPhcrson and Halo ,
Congressman Perry Uolmont , Sir. Glltillan
of Minnesota. Prof. Parker ot Dartmouth
college , and Mr. Joseph Pullt/er.
The most conspicuous figure In the proces
sion was the German crown prince , whoso
magnificent physique , set off by nsnow-whlto
uniform , shown conspicuously amoni : the
princely throng. The Prlnco of Wales ,
seemed Insignificant In comparison. Grand
Duke Scrglns , of Itussla , was , after the
German crown prince , much thu most strik

A reception and banquet was given at the
palace to-night , tlio guests being limited to
members of the rojal families and diplomats.
Minister Phelps was present.

Cable Special to the BKK. | Lady Godlva
has been practically sent to Coventry.
This old town , five miles Iroui the
famous Kcnllworth castle , nnd once
noted as ribbons , celebrated the jublloo
nnd Godlva pazeant together , but in
so doing suppressed "peeping Tom of Cov
entry" and tlio traditions of the nvmph-llko
Saxon lady who "rode thro' the amorous sun
shine clothed only with golden tresses. " A
Lady Godlva shown In full dress was like
giving the ballet with men or enshrouded
Turkish women. The festivities vv hlch com
memorated the victory of the tenants bOO
years ago were therefore wholly decorous.
One thousand two hundred Sunday school
children with the lord mayor andcouncllmon
beaded the procession. A thousand old
people were lying in the market hall , the
counterfeit of the ancient guardsmen. They
wore a silver uniform as they did In the im-
porsonatlon.of the diagonlcss Saint George ,

cruel eyes than perhaps belonged to the

nificent dapple giey.
Coventry , however , Is happy to-day , not
withstanding Its traditions have boon viola

peers of to-day is its M. P. and townsman ,
Henry William Eaton. Ho Is over seventy
years old , a silk mercer , who Is a partial

Hot Times in Boston.
BOSTON , Juno 21. Mayor O'lJrlon to-day
told the committee of Irishmen and others
that ho had no power to cancel the permit to
Englishmen to hold jublleo services In Fan-
cull hall to-night , and so the celebration was
held. Probably no meeting over
held In Boston created such in
tense excitement. So bitter were
the Irish that violcnco was feared. Before 7
o'clock groups of men nnd boys begnn to
cather around the hall , and their numbers
were augmented until the square was tilled.
Uy 8 o'clock , the hoar for holding the ban
quet , the square and'approaches to Faneull
hall became densely blocked. Then orders
were given the police to drive back the people
and ropoolT the strecfe. This was done by
the police after some vigorous clubbing. In

As nn umplro Mr. Deaglo Is feaifnlly and
wonderfully niado ; and whllo the Ouialms
collared the bulk of the roast , the Lincoln ?
were remembered , too. Ho gave the Lln-
colr.s a homo run on Hall's foul lilt over the
right field fence In the opening inning- , but
wened up by giving the Ouialms ouu on
Walsh's tout hit o\er the lett ticld fence In
the seventh. Ho made c.xecrablu decisions
on first and third no less than three times ,
and his judgment on balls and strikes was
As an umplro , In the language of Lord
Gladstone , Dcaclo Is a pro-eminent failure.
Ho's no Rood , to neatly pack the truth In a
nutshell , nud Omaha wants no more of him.
In the first , Omaha got a man as tar as see-
Mid , but that's all. Swift went out to first ,
Walsh wasglven a Dag on balls , stole second
but Dwyer and llarter were speedily retired
on Ions Hies to Shaffer and Hall respectively.
Foi the Llncolns , Hall , the first man at the
bat. hit the hrst ball pitched , a foul over the
Held fence , but the umpire said It was
fair.This was a damper on the audience In the
outset , and a suppressed groan , broken hero
and there by some very muscular ejaculations ,
thrilled through the ontlro stand.
Beckley then banned the ethereal mildness
four times , Shaffer fouled out , and Kowo
died on a puny drive to Swift.
In the second Hart presented Kourko with
the No. 1 bag. Messitt How out. Bader fol
lowed with a hit to left , and on a muff by
UecKley Kourko took third and ho second.
Cionlns' hit had a treat deal of lire in It , and
on Its being fumbled by llerr , both man on
bases camr. in , Genius , however , perishing at
lirst.Tho audience hero cheered uproariously ,
but observed nn almost funereal sllenco
throughout the remainder of the contest.
O'Leary sent a slow one to llrst and took
his place In the box.
Tlio Llncolns came In , and after Dolan and
Jlerr had retired on long tiles to Under , both
excellent catches , O'Leary gave Toohey first
on balls , he stole second neatly , and came
home on Hart's hit to short , which Dwycrlot
get between his legs , and when he recovered
the ball Hart was on third. Hall retired ,
however , on a throw by llarter to Dwyer , the
fourth strikes having been missed.
In the third Swift , Walsh and Dwyer were
retired as last as they could step up to the
plate , but the Lincolns added another to their
column of totals , Lang scoring on Rourko's
fumble , a steal and a naif passed ball.
For the Omahas the fourth , fifth , sixth and
seventh were unproductive , and it was a
buzz-saw to a wild cat that Lincoln would
take the game.
But few enthusiastic "Hey I Hey ! Hoys I'
gladdened the hearts and quickened the
pulses of the Omahas ; some times the sllonco
was so oppressive you could have heard a
gum drop. Occasionally , however , a sten
torian request would emanate from the grand
staud for Mr. Dcaglo to go off and lay down ,
but we couldn't see what they wanted Mr.
Deacle to lay down for ; he didn't scorn tired
and was certainly enjoying himself. One
man was Inhuman enough to implore him to
go out his throat
Wasn't that awful ?
lint It relieved Uin monotony.
In the sixth inning for the Lincoln's Itowo
drove a line one for a bag past second ; Dolan
forced him ut second , and went to third on a
w lid throw of O Lsary's. Herr then made n
one bagger to loft , and Dolan came In.
Toohey fanned out and Hart was ex
tinguished trying to purloin .second.
In the seventh , after two hands were out ,
they built a Himalayan peak by piling up
three more runs. Hall out at hrst. Bechloy
struck out for the second time , but Lang got
his base on a fumble of Dwyer's , stole second
and on a fumble of Uouko's and a wild throw
of Shaffer's hit they went to third and second
respectively , and galloped homo like year
lings on Kowo'ssafo hit to center. Howe fol
lowing in himself on Harter's wild throw to
catch him at second. Dolan then kindly ro
ll red.
For the Omahas , in the eighth , after
O'Loary and Swift had gone out , Duaglo
made the rubescent short stop a Christmas
present of a homo run on a toul hit over left
hold fonco.
But still the tomb-llko stlcnco reigned.
The audience had already had tomb much.
They couldn't ha\o been hurt much worse ,
not n\en had Dcagle pushed the court house
over on them.
In their half the Llncolns swelled the fil/e
of their victory to ten runs , on Toohoy's base

balls and another llery and untamed throw by
As a sample of what they could do when
they want to , the Omahas came in for their
turn at tlio ninth. Kourkdkook first on an
error of Becklcy's : Messltt's hit to second
was mulTed , and O'Leary took that bag and
Messitt lirst , and then mascot Under dtovo a
safe ono Into Toohoj 's garden , and that gen
tleman allowing it to tortuously a\old iilm.

then homo right on the heels of Kourko and

create any excitement heio outside of the
wheat pit qn the board of trade. The cash
iers of the principal banksof the city were
Interviewed and were unanimous In the
opinion that It would have no effect hero
linanclally. Cashier Mover , of the Commer
cial National bank , said : "The examiner
has done. In my opinion , a thing ho has no
right to do , namely , ordered n bank closed
merely because ho found that some of the
olllcers had been engaged In fraudulent
trynsactlons merely because payment had
been stopped on some of their drafts. 1C
there had been no funds to meet them and
they had gone to protest , It would have boon
n different matter. " Cashier Preston , of the
Metropolitan National , said : "iho banks
hero have been looking for something of that
kind for some time , over since the bursting
of the wheat corner. The Fidelity was n
very larne Institution. It Is only about a
year old , but by holding out special induce
ments to other bauks they succeeded In
building up n large business In that line.
They did the largest business of any bank In
Ohio. They have quite a large balance to
tlieir credit with u , but over since the burst
ing of the wheat deal this thing has been
looked for , and the Bank of Montreal and
the American E\chango bank are the
only banks here that have any of their drafts ,
