. London, Nov. 9. Sir Georgo Trus
cott was today inducted,, into the office
of lord mayor of London, in succession
to Sir Charles Bell. The ceremonies
carried out at the Inaugural consisted
Of a great "literary" pageant, in which
all the great Englishmen of letters
were represented, ' - r ' , 1 ,
Ion In , connection with the Inaugur
ation' of the Incoming lord mayor Is
the great banquet' at the Guildhall In
the evening.. To this the chief per
sonages of the realm are Invited and
the 'prime minister, In reply' to the
toast, ''His Majesty's ' Government,"
gives an Indication of his policy for
the future. This speech , is always
eagerly looked, forward to, especially
wnen clouds" are thick and heavy on
the political horizon.' The foreign
ambassadors and ministers to the court
of St. James, are' likewise Invited, and
on several occasions our own ambas
sador has responded for the diplomatic
corps. Lowell, Bayard, Choate and
Whltelaw Held : have thus responded
In their official capacity and have
won fresh oratorical laurels for them
selves. It is safe to say that next to
the prime minister's speech that of
the American ambassador, if he
speaks, is the most attentively listened
to. ' - '. '
The Guildhall Is an ancient and
large stone structure capable of ac
commodating several hundred guests.
At one end la a raised dais on which
the table for the lord mayor and the
principal guests Is placed. , r
One of our La Grande citizens of
English birth, and the grandson of
a former lord mayor, who, was Inaug
urated in 1844, gives us the following
Items In connection with the banquet,
which will be of interest to our read
ers, as he lias the original account book
in his possession, his information Is
reliable. ' 1 -
The number of guests invited was
1050, and the American minister at
that time was Edward Everett.
The contract for the food supply
was let for 11030. or approximately
$3520. The wines, which .Included
Champaign, Hock, Claret, Madeira,
Port, Sherry, cost about $2500 more, j
The menu for this sumptuous feast
was printed on silk cloth. A sample
of the menu Is now in the possession
of I'pton H. Gibbs of this city, and
the long list of 'edibles Includes: 240
tureens of real turtle; 200 bottles of
sherbet; 30 entrees; 0 ro83t pullets;
t9 pigeon pies and 2 other liberal
dishes cf Tcgetsb'ea and dlffer?at
classes of meat; nine kinds of "re

menue Is extremely beautiful and val

its boundaries. ; The honor Is, how
ever, valued and sought after, but It
Involves a heavy expense to Its recip
