LONDON, AUg. J.-( "
fclegram Special Telegram.) King Edward l
Is firmly resolved to be crowneo. - i

tnlnster Abbey In a litter.
When he hesrd that the duke of Norfolk

that all preparations be completed imme- ,ueTDg ths dlfflcultlea. I am very proud
dlately, as the ceremonial certainly would cf mjr own time six hours and twenty-two

ell founded Is ths public uncertainty. I
The desire to get the coronation over i

Mmed to Imoly that the coronation date
Is not absolutely certalp, whereupon me testing the best railway service by on

ters no little alarm. Everyone about the Del steamer schedule caused a loss of flf-
yacht humors him as if he were a chlia ana I
always assumes that the coronation on
srust 9 Is as good as accomplished.
The kin himself is masing an dim en
gagements for the fall on that basis. If
anything should happen now to defer the
crowning again the doctors say that they
could not be' answerable for his life, that
the king Is making good progress, but his
attempts to walk at this stage oi convaies-
i4niihtllv are rlskv. It is noi Be
lieved that In any ease he can walk up the
abbey with his heavy robes. An invaiia i
chair will certainly be requisitioned for that
Kins la Bpertltloo.
Undoubtedly the king's anxiety to be
crowned is largely due to superstition. He
seems to havs been beset with evil omens
before his breakdown.
- The World ' correspondent learns 'that
when the king arrived from Aldershot and
Windsor castle the royal standard could
' hot be got above half mast. It stuck there
and could not be hoisted. Finally ths Union
Jack was hoisted In Its stead, which went
up quite easily because the halyards ex
actly fitted the blocks.
Ths Incident hss been oppressing the
king's mind evsr since, and his doctors ssy
BO treatment can do any lasting good unless
he gets the coronation off his mind. They
proposed that he should be crownea pri
vately, but the lord chancellor, the arch
bishop of Canterbury and the law officers
agreed after consultation that a private
coronation would have no legal effect.
Although there have been many callers
at the royal yacht, the king saw nobody
until within the last three days outside of
the royal family and 8overal. The king of
tha Belgians waa only received by the
aueen. When on last Saturday it was nec
essary for the privy council to assemble
aboard the yacht to sign the coronation

king was so afraid that comparative strang

Despite everything the doctors say, there

king Is not through with his disease. It Is
current talk In those quarters that per
haps hs will be better able to stand ths
- ceremony next Saturday than six months
Klaer aad Qaeon. Reconciled.
There Is one point on which the World
Correspondent has the most positive in
formation, and that Is as to the complete .
reconciliation between the king and the
queen. It appears that wnen tns surgical
operation was about to be performed
the king bad a moat affecting In-
tervtew with the queen and at his request
be held his band when he was being put
tinder tbe Influence of chloroform. In order
to gratify his expressed wish that her face
might be the last he saw It the operation
proved fatal. When ha waa- recovering
consciousness the queen waa again brought
to his slds aad hs looked gratefully at her.
Sines thsn the queen has taken entlro con
trol of everything concerning him. But
whether other Influences will re-assert
themselves later on remains to be seen.
London Is preparing for the coronation
la a very half-hearted fashion. The faded
decorations ars being put up again, but
although the routo ot tbe procession is not
two miles long, there is practically no de-
tnand for seats. Five out of every six
houses In the fashionable part of the West
End are closed, altuough it la aald that tha I while as for ths projeoted tower. Its new
cwners will return in large numbers. Peers I neas would howl against - the San Marco
and peereses with town mansions are en-
gaging rooms at ths leading hotels for Au
gust and 9. There will be a general ex
odus on the following Sunday. Half pay
officers ars being offered Invitations to the
abbey tn order to fill it up. The whole as
pect of affairs presents a painful contrast
to ths delirious excitement originally pre
dicted for this great ceremonial.

Omaha wa In the grasp of a severe
electrical storm last night, which began
soon after 10 o'clock. Early In the even
ing dark clouds gathered in the west and
by 9:30 peals of thunder were heard at
short Intervale and within half an hour
lightning flashes accompanied the thunder,
which Increased in volume until a heavy
rain began about 10:30.
So intense was the storm that electric
lights in streets and buildings were ex
tinguished, street car were (topped and
fire engines started.
As Is generally the case in Omaha Sat
urday night found the atreeta literally lined
on both sides with people snd vast crowds
were caught, many unprepared, by the
storm. There waa some lively skirmishing
for shelter when the thunder and lightning
had rent the heavens so badly as to open
the rain window. With the water falling
in sheets and the cars standing atlll for
an hour, atorea and corridors were Im
preseed into service as places of refuge.
Strikes Flastpolo oa Mill.
Several reports of buildings being struck
by lightning were made during the storm,
the most serious being that of the Omaha
Milling company at Sixteenth and Charles
streets. Lightning struck the flagpole on
the roof, ran down through the building
and started fires on the roof, the second
floor and the basement, entailing a loss
on the building of about 1500. The stock,
vslued at $10,000, was soaked with water
and most of thia is ruined. The building,
a four-story brick, and machinery are val
ued at $35,000. The loss on the machinery
could not be estimated last night, though
it Is considerably damaged. The company
carried ii.OOO lu.uraacc cn ths st?c! e"1?
$17,600. on the building and machinery.
The fire was first discovered by J. B.
Gamble, who lives in that neighborhood
and who was awakened by the lightning.
He turned In the fire alarm, which wa
followed shortly after by a second.
When the department arrived the flames
were Issuing from the southeast and the
southwest corners of the roof and the fire
was burning in the second story and the
basement.' Smoke' completely- fills- the.
street, making It difficult to get air the
fire. Notwithstanding the heavy downpour
of rain and the dozen streams which were
playing on the fire, as fast as it was sub
dued In one place It broke out mora fiercely
in another. To make.lt mora difficult
for the firemen', by the aid of the building
and In the rear 1 a steep embankment,
which, made slippery by tbe rain, rendered
it almost Impossible to get to the building
from these sides. It took over two hours
of hard work to subdue the flames.
The first floor of the building contained
the Immense stock of flour and ths
second and third are filled with machinery.
The smoke and fire on the machinery floors
forced several firemen who entered th
building upon their arrival to leave, and
the fighting bad to be done entirely from
the outside. The basement ot the building
Is used as an engine room. Only small
damage wa done in these.
Horse Add to Excitement.
To add to the excitement occasioned by
the fire, a horse hitched to a buggy and
