LONDON, April 2. (New York World
Cablegram Spertal Telegram.) Queen
Alexandra ha chosen the duchess of Marl
borough, it la laid, aa a special compliment
to Americana, to be one ot her attendant
at the coronation. The other attendants,
it la reported, are to be the duchesses of
Sutherland, Portland and Montrose. This
election la purely arbitrary and the senior
duchesses are affronted because their claims
have been overlooked.
The peeresses are mora than ever dis
tressed about their coronation robes. They
imply loathe themselves In them. The
robes are thick about the wai.l, heavy,
unbecoming and the smart ones complain
that there is nothing to dlstlngutc h them
from the dowdies. Then the peeresses are
drying to know what kind of a crown the
queen Is planning to wear, but the queen
Won't tell, and even keeps' secret where

It will contain the Kohinoor, and that ane
baa refused to wear the trying kind ot
robes the prescribed for them. When one
of their number deplored to the queen that
the peeresses would look Indifferently, the
queen is said to have- replied: "Individ
ually you may not look smart, but the mass
ot crimson velvet and gold should make a
very fine effect on the abbey.
King Carries His Polat.
After a prolonged tussle with the arch
bishop of Canterbury and other ecclesi
astical dignitaries King Edward succeeded
n cutting out of the coronation ceremonial
11 of Ita moat tedioua and ustfally costly
part. The ceremony of first oblation is
to be excised. This consist In the king
and queen each presenting an expensive
cloth of gold altar cloth to the archbishop,
together with a wedge of solid gold weigh
ing one pound. He haa also abolished the
reading of the ten commandments and his
olemq adjuration to faithfully observe
them. Also the hallelujah, the anthem
and long final prayer. He compromised on
the litany, which la to be reduced one-half,
and on the benediction, which is to be
curtailed. Only the senior peer of each
degree of the nobility is to make an act of
fewrage instead -of the whole lot ot them.
The coronation oath la to be altered by
omitting reference to the church In Ireland,
which ha been disestablished since the
last coronation. No mention la expressly
made of the communion, but that is be
lieved to bave gone with the rest. The
king's declared object U to save time, bnt
it la felt that he has also aensibly denuded
the ceremonial ot formalities which would
not be edifying ander the circumstances.

VIENNA, April 26. (New York World

to the Austrian throne is morganatically
married, and so his sons, if ever he has
any. cannot succeed to the crown. His
brother Otto'a eldest son. Archduke Fran
cis Carl, is therefore the heir presumptive
after him. It waa considered a very lib
eral measure that Carl was put to school
with other boys, although hi tutor. Baron
Wallla, a major in the army, accompanies
blm and stays with him during school
time. The boys In the same claas
naturally felt proud to have such a
distinguished schoolfellow and con
sidered It an honor to help blm put his
overcoat on. But when he began to look
round with a frown if they did not run
for hi overcoat they stopped being at
tentive to him, and now It is the major
who helps him put his coat on. Lately

a front of the front row of benches. He
rled to return the pencil by holding It
fver his shoulder for the boy behind him
to take aad did not look round. The boy
thought this a piece of Impudence and did
not take the pencil. Then the little arch
duke dropped It, There it lay and nobody
picked it up. The boys resolved that un

he brought himself before the world. His

Imperial Light Horse and Carbineers, the
first of the relieving force to reach the
unfortunate town, was the crowning
achievement of a long list. His promo
tion to major general followed.
Wife Haa Will of Her Own.
Lord Dundonald, who is 50 years old, has
a personal hold upon his men which, per
haps even more than his conceded quali
ties as a leader, has contributed to his suc
cess. His wife, who was a Welsh heiress,
inherited her beauty as well as broad acres
from her family, the Hesketbs, with the
addition of a very pretty will of her own.
When the district council of Abergale, near
her aeat, Gwyreh castle, tried to popu
larize the place as a seaside resort and
set on foot compulsory parliamentary meas
ures to force desired Improvements, she cut
down a beautiful avenue ot trees that had
stood fo- centuries, thereby destroying its
principal beauty.
Canada will welcome the earl, who suc
ceed Major General O' Grady Haly. He
will have the satisfaction of commanding
some of the finest men the British lion

himself a loafer and blackguard. Prince
Napoleon, having been informed of the oc
currence by telephone, acted the same
night, calling the court-martial, kicking the
lieutenant out of the army and informing

English Pe.almista Believe American
Flaaarter Deals Body Blowa
to British Commerce.
LONDON. April 2. The Americanization
of the British mercantile navy will again
be the principal subject at "questions
time" In the House of Commons Monday.
Members have given notice of a dozen In
quiries, covering a variety of points, In
dicative of widespread apprehension, that
despite assurances to the contrary, lae
shipping combination menaced not only
Great Britain's naval resources, Lut ber
commercial Interests.
Further information will be asked of the
nitnlsters as to whether the British com
panies enter the combine on precisely the
same terms as the American and German
lines; whether British companies will be
required to disclose the terms of their
agreement with the American syndicate,
and whether the obligation of the Wbit
Star line to recruit half its crews from
the royal naval reserves will hold good,
The pessimists refuse to credit the as
surance that the Atlantic combine Las no
ulterior design to cap the naval strength
of Great Britain. Mr. Morgan is held up
as a monster dealing a reeling blow to
Ill-organized British commerce and calmly i
organizing earthquakes with designs to
s allow up the world.
The St. James Gazette wants a re-enactment
of the navigation las and falls foul
of the airy Indifference of the president
of the Board of Trade, Gerald Balfour,
aa indicated by his replies In the Houee
of Commons to questions on the subject.
The Westminster Gazette takes a calmer
view. It thinks the combination will easily
change the character of British trade and
says: "Whether Great Britain likes it or
not, the trust movement is part of the
evolution of modern business and there is
little chance of resisting It. The shipping
companies merely propose to adopt a char,
acteristic American organization under the
guidance ot Americans who are paatmaster
In that particular line of business."
As to how combine shall be compelled
to regard public convenience, the West
minster Gazette finds legislation Ineffective
and thinks there is no other corrective but
the enlightened self-interest ot the com
bines themselves.

Lord Acton, the gifted professor of his

custodian of the Free Library of Edin

There will be about 8,000 volume and the
probable cost la upward ot $50,000.
The American literature selection will
be particularly choice. On that point the
great steel master left specific Instructions.
He will have only the masterpieces and
those works which should be represented
In a first-class private collection. Scot
land naturally enough Is well In the front,
the authors' names Including Sir Walter
Scott. Black, Stevenson, Barrle, Crockett
and Conan Doyle. But as novels are al

old collection the recent purchases do not
number many books of fiction. Both
poetry and philosophy, Mr. Carnegie's pet
subjects, are prominent. A Scotch Doug

Burns, Is Included. The edition of Shakes

volume containing one play,

Mr. Carnegie haa no particular liking
for the classics, andeocly the best ot them
In translation are to be seen. Theology
is not greatly In evidence, the outstanding
volumes being Ieremy Taylor's works and
John Knox'a books. There 1 a very choice
collection of travels and several books
have been acquired about coaching, Mr.
Carnegie's favorite means of traveling
about the country. The library is rich In
speeches, one collection running to over 100
volumes, all In red morocco. "The Story
of the Nations," "Heroea of the Nations."
and similar works, are represented In beau
tiful leathers, and there is a particularly
fine set in natural history, extending to
forty-nine folio volumes and bound by
Riviere In full green morocco.
Ruskin haa a place of honor and appears
In the very best editions, although there
is complete set of the cheaper modern
editions for general use. A copy of the
Ruckln work entitled "Poems, J. R., Col
lected 1850," cost J57.50, but the librarian'
aim ha not been to secure rare editions.
Mrs. Carnegie baa taken an active part
in the library and her taste Is evident in
many way. In addition to the splendid
collection in the library of the castle,
books will also be features In the furnish
