The programme of the Earl Marshal,
the Duke of Norfolk, does not deal with
the Windsor ceremony. In connection
with which much still remains to be
fione. The Duke of Norfolk and his
staff have been extremely busy and do
not expect much respite before mldn'ght.
The department of the master of the
horse is also busily occupied and the Duke
of Portland and his subordinates havo
been all working early and late to get
everything in readiness. So determined
are they to have no hitch that they have
decided upon still another rehearsal of
the procession, using the actual gun car
riage This rehearsal will carefully set
tle all points of halting and other details.
This evening the Earl Marshal Issued
further Instructions. These announce
thit since the letters of invitation wer
printed, the hour for the ceremony at

the va'ace from the Mall. Even on the
-.tlr-Ili'tigs of the palace, on the bal-c-y
vs hence King Edward's accession
was proclaimed and In the gardens of
Marlborough House, similar provisions for
e-estors Hre jeiny made. Carpenters
ar.l JoJners are everywhere building
Et-UiJs and shoring up balconies. The
same condition of things prevails In Plc
"ail'Iy. Seating accommodations are be
ing prepared In every possible nook, from
Devorsh.ro House to the balcony of Aps
ley House Lamp posts In the middle of
the roadways are being removed. In
Hyde Park, of course, neither decoration
nor stands are possible. Therefore, only
an occasional glimpse of a purple draped
balc;ny In Park Lane is obtainable.
In Edgeware Road and thence to Pad
dlngton are the liveliest scenes of all.
The entire population of the district and
suburbs seems to have congregated in
search of accommodation and trafficking

gives the appearance of a busy market.
Hardly a house but is being let out, and
fancy prices are easily obtainable for

with stands erected in the gardens, and
people eagerly pay 3 or 1 for seats on
them, while windows in the houses in the
rear of the stands, with trees between
them and the roadways, axe considered

The royal arrivals in the metropolis to
day Included the Crown Prince of Nor
way and Sweden and the Duke and Duch
ess of Aosta, the King of Wurtemburg
and Prince Mahommed All. Their respec
tive Embassies or Legations and repre
sentatives of King Edward met the vis
itors and conducted them to places of
residence. The French, Turkish and Bul
garian missions have also arrived.
The United States Embassy will send
to Windsor Castle three magnificent floral
wreaths from President McKInley and
Mrs. Garfield, and a cross from Ambas
sador Choate. The President's wreath is
eight feet In diameter.
Members of King Edward's suite tell
their friends that His Majesty appears
overwhemed by the sense of the responsi
bilities of Kingship. Whereas, formerly,
he was genial, but exacting and Irritable
regarding official matters, he has be
come profoundly grave and exceedingly
considerate to those about him in small as
well as In Important matters. He has
worked many hours dally since the
Queen's death, disposing of two or three
Weeks' arrears of public business which
she had not been able to attend to.
Society expects that King Edward will
make St. James the most brilliant court
In Europe, hold night drawing-rooms. In
stead of the somewhat dreary afternoon
functions of the past quarter of a cen
tury, and provide refreshments Instead or
leaving the guests to eat sandwiches in
their carriages, under the eyes of the
crowd. Those who have been presented to
Queen Victoria will be entitled to attend
King Edward's drawing-rooms after sub
mitting their names to the Lord Cham
berlain. It Is hoped the King will revive
the custom of the monarch visiting the
castles of the nobility, and also revive
the holding of drawing-rooms at Holy
Rood Palace. Whether he will adopt the
prerogative of kissing the cheeks of the
ladies presented, followed by the Viceroys
of India and Ireland, is one of the topics
of society gossip.
For the funeral, 33,000 soldiers will be
under arms. Three thousand men will
march In the procession, and the re
mainder will line the route. The detach
ments of troops In the procession will
represent every branch of the army, navy,
yeomanry and volunteers. The military
display, however, will not not be spec
tacular. All the men will wear overcoats,
except the Irish Footguards on duty at
Buckingham Palace. Twenty thousand
soldiers are pouring into London from the
country. School buildings will, be util
ized as barracks. An army of workmen
today is preparing Victoria Station for
the arrival of the funeral cortege. The
placards have been torn down, the wood
and iron works have been repainted, and
the stores In the vicinity display the royal
monogram on a black and purple back
ground. All the possible details of the
ceremonies are being rehearsed.
It has been arranged that any of the
Kings not on horseback In the proces
sion shall drive in company with the
Princesses, while the Princes not desir
ing to ride shall not participate in the
procession, but will drive by a shorter
route to Paddlngton and await Its arrival
there. In all the ceremonies connected
with the funeral, the Crown Prince of
Germany, Frederick William, will take
precedence next to and after the crowned
reads. In view of the Duke of Corn
wall and York being unable to attend, his
oldest son Is expected to take the place
in the procession originally allotted to the
The saloon carriage in which It Is in
tended to convey the coffin to Victoria
Station, has arrived at Portsmouth. The
interior is lined with white silk with
braid, purple stripes extending vertically
from the roof to the floor, which is car
peted with gray felt. The bier stands
In the center of the carriage, completely
enshrouded with purple.
It Is now generally accepted that the
wording of the proclamation in Pretoria
describing Edward VII as "Supreme Lord
of and over the Transvaal" was delib
erately designed to promote conciliation.
Special significance is attached to the
fact that the Times prints a letter from
Sir Henry Drummond Wolff, in which
the diplomat declares It is difficult to ex
aggerate the Importance of this wise and
benenclent step. The title, he says, is
likelier than any other that could be
devised to lead to pacification. It estab
lishes the supremacy of the British sov
ereign and recognizes the moral entltity
of the Transvaal, keeps It separate from
the constitutional empire, and places its
ancient laws, customs, traditions, relig
ion, genealogy and private property un
der the supreme, separate rule" and pro
tection of the King. The proclamation,
concludes Sir Henry, was inspired by the
desires of conciliatory statecraft and the
result must be pacific.
King Edward has conferred the Grand
Cross of the Victorian Order on Count
(The Count von Metternlch referred
to is probably Count Wolf von Met
ternlch, a great favorite of Em
peror William of Germany, who repre
sented Germany in London early In 1900,
during the absence of the German Am
bassador, Count von Hatzfeld-Wildenberg.
Count von Metternich's name was men
tioned at the time as the probable suc
cessor of Count von Hatzfeld In London,
the latter having, according to report,
fallen Into disfavor with the Emperor.)
It Is officially announced that King Ed
ward has definitely decided to open Par
liament in person February 14.
The directors of the Northeastern Rail
way system of England have ordered that
at 2:S0 P. M. Saturday, the hour appointed
for the f uncial at Windsor, all trains shall
be brought to a standstill and every
servant of the. company shall remain mo
tionless for 10 minutes.
The King has ordered that same men
who will carry the coffin in the procession
shall bear it to the mausoleum at Frog
The managers of the .London afternoon
papers have decided unanimously to sus
pend publication Saturday, so that those
who are not able to witness the funeral
scenes will have to wait until Sunday
for the descriptions. Such a suspension,
except on Good Friday, is almost without
precedent. It will serve to emphasize the
solemnity of a great occasion.
The Dally Mall recalls that on the occa
sion of the funeral of Queen Elizabeth
no foreigner followed the bier, with the
exception of the French Ambassador, and
It adds that "now all Europe will ac
company the bier of the mother of sov
ereigns." The naval display will be less striking
than on the occasion of the diamond jubi
lee. It had been expected that more for
eign men-of-war would be present. More
over, several vessels of the Channel
squadron are now detained for repairs
at their base port. Yet the spectacle will
be extremely majestic The Spanish war
ship Emperador Carlos V, which was or
dered to Portsmouth, has been obliged to
return to Ferrol, her engines being dis
abled. The Czarowltch and other distinguished
persons who are now crossing the Channel
to England will complete the list of
guests. Following is the list of royal
mourners, with those deputed to attend
them during their sojourn In England:
The Duke of Aosta, Major-General Slade;
Archduke Ferdinand of Austria, Major
General Sir A. Ellis; Prince Arnulff, of
Bavaria, Colonel Wardrop; the King of

In the Windsor ceremony, few beyond
the immediate members of the family
will see much after the procession has
entered St. George's Chapel, which will
be divided by a carved screen, back of
which the services will be conducted in
visible to most of the nonroyal Invited
guests on the other side.
It appears that after her death. Queen
Victoria was arrayed In her royal robes,
with all her foreign orders and decora
tions. Over these and across her breast
was laid the ribbon and order of the
garter. Her bridal veil was then placed
over her head and face.
WANT NO NEW COUNTY.
Two-Thirds of Yakima Voters Sign
NORTH YAKIMATwasn., Jan. 31. The
local committees In charge of the matter
of prevention of division of Yakima Coun
ty have received protests against the step
from all but two of the sevtfn precincts
In the proposed county of Riverside, which
were to be taken from Yakima County.
The voting population of the entire terri
tory, November 6,was approximately 450.
The actual voting population now, includ
ing residents who will be voters within
five or six months. Is probably 600. The
gain has been mainly In Sunnyside pre
cinct. The signers on the remonstrances,
which will be forwarded to Senator Baker
tomorrow, number over 400.
It will thus be seen that the reports sent
out that there Is practically no opposition
to division In the proposed new county
Itself are wholly Incorrect.
It is believed here that the project to
divide the county is dead. The statement
Is made that Representative Rich, of this
county, will not exert himself for It, and
that It is doubtful If a bill for division
is Introduced in the Legislature.
Lobbyists Raised Fands.
Patrick Henry Scullln and John McLean,
of Seattle, -were In town tnls week, mak
ing collections, to be used, they said, in
lobbying a bill through the Legislature
providing for a State Board of Arbltra
tion. At their Instance a public meeting
was held last night, and resolutions fa
voring such a commission were adopted.
They secured small sums of money from
merchants and others interested. Those
who contributed were somewhat disquieted
this morning by a letter from Spokane,
sent to the Postmaster, In which serious
charges against the good faith and In
tentions of Mr. Scullln respecting the
funds collected were made.
Candidates for Postmaster.
G. J. Hill, chairman of the Republican
County Central Committee; George 8.
Hough, secretary, Lieutenant W. L.
Lemon, an ex-Phillpplne soldier; F. C.
Hall, ex-County Auditor; A. S. Paul, Col
onel L. S. Howlett and Colonel W. F.
Prosser, are the candidates In the field
thus far for the vacancy left by the death
of Postmaster Sperry, of this city. The
office pays $2000 a year. The appoint
ment Is to be made, It Is said, by Con
gressman W. L. Jones, whose residence
is here. It Is expected that he will name
the new Postmaster within the next 30
Land Office to Be Moved.
The United States land office, which has
been domiciled in the First National Bank
building for the last three years, will be
removed to the quarters which it for
merly occupied In the Howlett block. In
spector Burke, who has oeen here for 10
days, has recommended the change, and
It will be made March 1.
Commercial Clnb Officers.
Officers of the Commercial Club for the
ensuing year were elected at the club's
annual meeting last night, as follows:

MAY GET TWO FACTORIES.
Vancouver Has Good Offers and
"Will Likely Meet Terms.
VANCOUVER, Wash., Jan. SL At a
special meeting of the Commercial Club
yesterday to consider the manufacturing
propositions submitted some time ago.
the Columbia Fruit Canning Company of
fered, If the city would furnish a suitable
site, to erect a building and operate a
fruit cannery, with a capacity of 25,000
cases the first season, the capacity to be
Increased annually to meet the demand.
The cost of building and operating ex
penses for the first season will Involve
an outlay of about $30,000. The site se
lected is a portion of the city levee, at
the foot of West C street. The propo
sition will be submitted to the City Coun
cil at once, and it is highly probable that
the use of the ground asked for will be
given for a term of years.
E. L. Canby, cashier of the First Na
tional Bank, reported that encouraging
progress was being made in the matter of
complying with the proposition for the
establishment of a condensed milk fac
tory. The man back of the project is
R. Beutlkoffer, of Portland, who repre
sents a company of Swiss cheese and
condensed milk makers. It is proposed
to establish and operate a condensed milk
factory, with a capacity, at the start, of
3000 pounds of milk daily, provided the
citizens will furnish a suitable building
free of cost to the company for the first
five years. Mr. Beutlkoffer stated that
the machinery for the plant is already
here, and that the work of putting it In
place will begin Immediately, upon a suit
able site being obtained. Negotiations
are being made for the Fore pork pack
ing establishment, which has been idle
for several years, and the prospects are
that it will be secured. Another propo
sition which Is being considered by the
club Is the building of a wagon road from
this place to the Copper Creek and Can
yon Creek mines, in Skamania County.
Messrs. Ward and Colfelt, representing,
the Copper Creek Mining Company, ad
dressed the club on the subject, stating
that It is the Intention of that company
to begin active development of their mines
and that before any ores can be shipped
out considerable road-building will have
to be done. The citizens of Washougal
have offered to assist in building a road
to the Columbia at that place, but It Is
desired by the Copper Creek Company, as
well as by others engaged In developing
mines in that vicinity, to get an outlet at
Vancouver, and they ask the citizens here
to assist In the construction of the road.
The matter was referred to a committee,
of which W. W. McCredle is chairman.

ROBBED OF HIS MUSTACHE
Hazing of a Turlc May Lead to Seri
PHILADELPHIA. Jan. 25. It is possi
ble that the loss of a mustache, which
until yesterday adorned the lip of John
Loutlflan, a student at the Medico Chirur
gical College, may lead to the demand for
an Investigation of college hazing by the
Turkish Minister. Loutlflan is a Turk,
and It Is said he was sent here by order of
the Sultan. He is a great, big fellow,
and In addition to fondling the slight
growth of hair on his upper lip overmuch,
he treated his classmates rather disdain
fully. Yesterday they determined to reduce his
pride, and about a dozen of them, attacked
him in the reading-room. After a scuffle.
in which chairs, lamps and tables were
overturned, they overpowered him, laid
him on his back, with arms and legs pin
ioned, and while two men held his head,
another skillfully removed his mustache
with a scalpel.
When Loutlflan was allowed to get up
he shouted that he had neen disgraced;
that his mustacne was worth $10 a hair;
that he had been defiled and disgraced by
being shaved by on infidel. One of his
tormentors made out a bill. "One mus
tache, five hairs on one side, six on the
other, eleven hairs, at $10 each, $110."
and gave It to the Turk, telling him to
present it to Uncle Sam for collection.
This enraged Loutlflan more, and he
went with the trouble to Dean Egbert,
and then to the Superintendent of police,
lodging a complaint with each. Later he
announced that he would acquaint the
Turkish Minister with the fact, and ask
that the hazers be punished for the In
dignities to which he had been subjected.
Dr. John V. Shoemaker, president of the
college, said today that if the students
who had participated In the affair were
caught they would be severely punished,
as the college had a large number of stu
dents from foreign countries, and for the
good of the college, if nothing else, they
would be protected.
Loutlflan said he did not mind the loss
of his mustache because he valued It, but
that his religion requires that It should
not be removed. Because of the loss he
said he would not be able to go to see his
friends, and would even have to stay
away from the home of his sister, who

the foreign Envoys was held this evening,
at which it was decided to hold a joint
meeting of the Envoys and the Chinese
plenipotentiaries next week. Nothing has
been definitely arranged regarding the
punishment, and opinions are much di
vided, some favoring drastic measures
like beheading the majority of those con
sidered responsible, particularly Prince
Tuan. who next to the Empress Dowager
is considered the principal culprit, but
others acting unlnstructed by their gov
ernments advocate nominal punishment,
like banishment. It is generally recog
nized that the foreign Envoys, with the
possible exception of M. de Giersf the
Russian Minister, personally believe that
leniency would be a great mistake, con

would put upon It.

Two amendments this afternoon, tending

After rejecting various amendments, the

VAN WYCK AND THE QUEEN
Explains "Why He Did Not Half-Mast
New York Commercial Advertiser.
Mayor Van Wyck, for the third timo
during his administration, today broko
his rule not to talk to newspaper men for
publication, the subject being his refusal
to lower the flag over the City Hall in
respect for Queen Victoria's memory. Tho
reporters sent to him a reojuest for an
explanation, and he came out of his pri
vate office and addressed thorn as follows:
' The flag was not ordered at half-mast
over the City Hall yesterday In following
out a precedent established by this and the
former administration. The flag was not
half-mast for President C&rnot, of the
French Republic, the Empress of Austria,
or when the Czar of Russia died, nor when
King Humbert was murdered, as I under
stand it. It Is corroborated in a state
ment in the papers this morning that tho
President had not ordered the flag at half
mast at the White House when either one
of these monarchs died. I followed the
precedent established here."
"The papers say that the flag on the
Wnlte House was half raised for the
Queen," said a reporter.
"Then they have established a new
precedent," answered the Mayor, and he
continued: "You must bear in mind that
people come "here all the time about such
matters. When General Joubert, tihe
commander of the Boer Army, died, al
most every personal frlennd I had in New
York came here and wanted me to fly the
flag at half-mast, and If I had followed
the dictates of my heart I would havo
done It, because I thought England was
murdering these people, and had robbed
them of their land, and my personal feel
ing was to do It, but I could not. There
is a precedent established here not to fly
the flag at half-mast when foreign mon
archs die. I simply followed the rule In
this case, and I think it is a very good

The Geological Survey Opportunity
Ought Not Longer Be Neglected.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 24. For a number
of years past the Geological Survey has
been making examinations in various
Western States of adaptable sites for res
ervoirs for storing the water of different
streams, with a view to converting It
into Irrigating canals, and thus develop
ing the various arid sections of the 8tate9
involved. These surveys are each year
provided" for by Congress, and are mado
in sections from which demands come,
not only from the Congressional delega
tions, but from the people direct. It Is a
remarkable fact that up to the present
time, Oregon is the only Western stato
which has no applications on file for such,
examinations. Washington has a few,
but not enough to make any Impression,
with the number presented from states
like California, Colorado and Utah. Up
to the present time, extensive surveys on
these lines have been made In Wyoming,
Colorado, Utah and California, and reser
voirs have been constructed and thousands
of acres of land thrown open to settle
ment which were previously practically
worthless. The people of Eastern Oregon
ore losing on opportunity, and should
hesitate no longer to interest themselves
and send In requests for just such sur
veys as have been made In other states
where there has been considerable pres
sure. There may not be any Immediate
results from these requests, but If In tho
future Congress should take some action
looking to the construction of huge reser
voirs, preference would naturally be given
to states where survej-3 have been made,
and where available sites have been lo
catedv Moreover, should private Interests
desire to go in and construct these reser
voirs, they would need nothing more than
the Government surveys in order to lo
cate the most advantageous site In any
particular locality. It costs the state and
the people nothing to have the surveys
