The portion of the agreement to which

the memory gathered around the occasion
produced an impressive monotone through
out the proceedings.
Coronation day opened with a glowing but
old sun shining. In the early morning
splatters of rain fell and a chill wind came
ft the fjord, making It necessary to wear
overcoats and winter clothing. The normal
temperature In the cathedral previous to the
ceremony was under W degrees and It was
feared that many of those present would
cary away a painful and lasting reminder
of the coronation of King Haakon and
iAen Maud, although the Norwegian
court wisely relaxed the rules governing
The city was alive at an early hour and
by I o'clock the avenues reaching to tbe
cathedral were filled with struggling lines
of people making for the various points of
antego from which to see the members
of the royal family and the distinguished
guests enter the cathedral. The doors of
the latter were opened at 10 a. . ra. and
sooh afterwards three bishops,- robed In
black and white, drove up in a baaketlike
phaeton. The crowd uncovered when the
bishops entered the cathedral.
Spectators Arrive Early.
The cathedral filled rapidly. By 10.2s a.
m. the majority of the spectators had ar
rived and were seated, the women In even
ing costumes and many of the men In
bright uniforms and wearing orders. The
ffeet waa imposing In spite of the half-
light In the Interior of the old cathedral.
Long rows of seats extended along the
entire both aides of the building, rising
tier upon tier. The center of the nave was
unoccupied except by the throne seats and
few chairs back of the columns. A red
carpet was stretched down the aisle and in
the center of both transepts.
The arrival of the bishops waa followed
by the appearance of a number of priests.
all rcbed In white. They entered the north
sanctuary at 10:110 and formed a seml-clrcle
about the altar and with bent heads offered
up prayer for the king and queen. Thr.lr
entrance silenced the crowd.
In the meantime lines of soldiers and
sailors from a specially constructed landing
place formed a lane to the cathedral en
The royal and special embassies soon
afterwarda began arriving. Among the first
was Lie special American envoy, Charles
H. Graves, minister to Sweden, and Mrs.
Graves; Lieutenant Commander John H.
Gibbons, the naval attache of the United
States at London, and Mrs. Gibbons; and
Major William M. Gibson, American mili
tary attache at St. Petersburg, who was
accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. William J,
Bryan. - . ,
Royalty Is Cheered.
The crowd watched the party with great
Interest. The visiting princes and prin
cesses were cheered as they drove along
the lane after the troops and a band eta
ttor.ed opposite the canopied portal of the
cathedral played the national anthem re
spectlvely of each country represented by
the arriving embassy and at the same time
the troops presented arms.
The prince and princess of Wales en
tered last at 10:66 a. m. and their party
waa still in the street when peals of bells
from the city churches announced that
King Haakon was preparing to leave the
palace. By thla time the dense crowds
walled behind the line of troops extendod
from below the palace Into the bisecting
streets and to the cathedral where near
the entrance stood the tribunes which had
been erected for the more fortunate of
Royalty Faces Camera
The king and queen, after a brief delay
in arranging the carriages and cavalry
esort, started for the cathedral, preceded
by their suites. A great cheer announced
the departure of the royal party. The
king and queen, who rode In a closed state
coach, both wore ermine robes and were
bareheaded. They seemed grave as they
drove toward the cathedral. The king,
however, smiled and saluted in reply to
the salutations of the people. ,
When approaching the cathedral their
