The ceremony of this morning waa
a ritual service of ancestor worship
and was held In a specially erected
ball In the palace grounds known as
the Shnnkoden hall, where was en
shrined the sacred mirror brought
from Toklo. The 8hunkoden was of
plain, unvarnished wood and con
sisted of an outer ball, inner hall and
shrine. It was simply decorated. In
deed, simplicity dominates the coro
nation ceremonies. The decorations
were those of Shtntolsm, the religion
adopted by the court, which is mora
pronouncedly a series of rites than a
religion pure and simple.
At the appointed time tits two sal of
the outer nail "kenrel-mon'' and
"kenshunmon," respectively, facing south
and east, were opened for the reception
of those allowed to attend the craitd cere
mony. Then arrived the guests, distinguished
officials, civil and military, noble the
members of the Houee of. Representatives
and the IIoi-so of Peers, the diplomatic
corps and other d'enltarles, accompanied
by their wives.

Including civil and military officers and
the diplomatic corps, who bad assembled
in the antechamber, rose and entered
the main hall. All these people were
reated also. There was a period of Im
pressive silence, suddenly broken by
trains of muslo. The steady, clear note
of the Japanese flute was succeeded by
harmonious rofler strains, symbollo of
sanctity and Joy. This was the kagura or
Bhlt.lo muslo played by the court mu
sicians. As the chorda filled the sir the
doors of the Imperial sanctuary were
slowly opened and the ritualists placed
sacred offerings before the altar. This
over, the chief ritualist, mojostle Jn flow

All rose as his Malesty entered and
bowed low as he slowly made his way
toward the sanctuary. With statoly nods
to right and left ths emperor acknowl
edged the respectful greetings of the
court, his people and the envoys from
foreign lands. The emperor was a strik
ing vision In a pure milk-white robe of
glocs silk. The color white Is ' always
worn in ritual settees, being symbollo
of purity and sanctity. On his head the
emperor wore a silk coronet of Imperial
shape which waa fastened under the chin
with band's of silk.
The emperor accompanied by the
chamberlains holding the sacred sword
and Jewel seated himself on a dais at
the inner side of the halt The saorel
