MORGAN A GUEST OF HONOR
Remarkable Dinner Glvea la the
Hons of Common by
LONDON, July 14. J. Plerpont Morgan
was tonight the guest of honor at a remark
able dinner, given In the House of Commons
by Archibald White MeConoehle, membsr
for the east division of Abderdoenshlre. On
one side of the host sat Mr. Morgan and on
the other Premier Balfour. Tbe other
guesta Included Ambassador Choate, St.
John Brodrlck, secretary of state for war;
W. Hanbury, president of the Board of
Agriculture; Sir E. H. Carson, solicitor
general; Sir Charles Dilke, M. P.; Sir R. B.
Finley, attorney general; Clinton Edward
Dawkins, one of the partners of the firm
of J. P. Morgan A Co.; Sir Thomas Llpton,
Bart.; George Wyndham, chief secretary
for Ireland; Arnold Foeter, financial secre-
ary to the admiralty; Onore Westing-
ouse, president of the Westlnghouie Elec
trical company, and Gilbert Parker, member
of Parliament for Gravesend.
The dinner began at t o'clock In a private
room within the precincts of the House of
Parliament. With the exception of Secre
tary Wyndham, who was' compelled to re
turn to the House of Commons for th i Irish
ebate, a majority of the guests chatted
until nearly 11 o'clock. The conversation
was particularly frank. The South African
war, international yacht races, the shipping
combine and all were discussed In turn.
Mr. Morgan and Premier Balfour were
both particularly animated. One of those
present aald to a representative of the As
It waa one of the most remarkable rath-
erlnm tn which I ever took part. Prac
tically a quorum of the cabinet talked over
In the simplest and most open way leading
subjects which now vitally concern both
countries. To see Mr. Morgan and Mr.
Balfour together, one could scarcely believe
the former had been regarded as bogie
who threatened England's commercial ex
istence. If aome things which , oassed
around that table could be repeated, it
would be an eye-opener to those who are
fomenting commercial rivalries between
England and America.
From another source the representative
of the Associated Press learned it was aald
Mr. Morgan was Jocularly certain the
Americans would retain the yachting cup.
A feeling of uneasiness pervaded the
dinner with regard to King Edward's condi
tion, even leading members ef the cabinet
displaying nervousness lest his majesty
should be unable to fulfill, his duties in
the coronation ceremony.
This was due to no little sxtsnt to the
statement of the doctor that the king I
not yet allowed to walk and to somewhat
natural apprehension that tbe aevere strain
of a fortnight hence will prove too danger
ous an undertaking,
There waa not the slightest whisper that
the king ia worse than the bulletins indi
cate. The only fear waa that the doctors
had been possibly too optimlatlo in setting
the date of the coronation on August I.
Mr. Balfour somewhat allayed the feeling
of nervousness by explaining that the doc
tors had been instructed that nnder no con
sideration whatever must they decide upon
the date for the coronation unless they
were absolutely positive the king would
not disappoint the people again. Mr. Bal
four pointed out that aa the doctors had
shown so far such splendid judgment It
would be presumptuous td doubt their Judg
ment now, however difficult It might be
for a layman tn unlort bow pattaat
wno could not stand ' up today could be
crowned August t. There Is no doubt, how
ever, that the cabinet will follow anxiously

Fireman Porter was caught under the
great engine when It turned over and waa
crushed to death. His body was soon re

In opening his address. President Roose
velt complimented the national guardsmen
of New Jersey upon their soldierly bearing
nd proficiency and continued:
A man is of use as a national guardsman
for Just exactly the sams reasona .as he
is of use as a cltlsen, and that Is if he
eets to work with his whole heart to do
his duty for the time being to make him
