Sorrow Wat One of Most Beloved
Kultrs of the World.
Cowe, Into of Wight, Jan. 23.
Queen Victoria ia dead and Kdwurd
Tho greatont event in tho momory of
this generation, tho most stupendous
chuugo in existing conditions that
could possibly Lo imagined, Iiiih takon
plaro quietly, almost gently, upon the
anniversary of tho death of Qucon Vio
Uoriu'i father, tVo Duko of Kent. The
I end of thla carreer, never equalled by
uny woman in tho world's history,
1 camo in a simply furnished room in
the Onborno Houte. This moat re
1 spocted of women, living or dead, lay
I in a groat four pouted bod nnd mado a
1 cllrunkeii aiom whoHo uged face and
1 llguro wero a cruel inockory of tho fair
I girl who, lu 1837, began to rule ovor
' England. Around her wen gatherod
almoflt every dencondant of her line.
I Well within view of her dying eyes
thoro hung a portrait of the Prince
jCoiiHort. It was ho who deslgnod tho
I room and every part of tho castle.
In Bcarcoly audibla womIb, the white
! haired BUhop of Winchester prayed
! be.ildo her, as he bad often prayed, for
ho was her chaplain at Windsor. With
bowed heads the imperious ruler of
the German empire and tho man who
1h now king of England, the woman
who lias Hticrcudcd to the titln of
queen, tho prlncea and princesses, and
tlioae of lens than royal designation,
lUtenod to tho bishop's coasolosn pray
ing. Six o'clock passed. The bishop con;
tinned his inlercoi-sion, One of tho
; ouuger children asked n question in
iihrlll, childish treble, and was immed
iately illuncod. Tho women of this
royal family cobbed faintly, and the
mon shuflled uneasily.
At exactly half past 0, Sir James
Held held up his head, and the people
then know that England had lost hor
queen. The bishop pronounced tho
benediction. The queen panned away
qulto peacefully. She suffered no
pain. Tho most of the mouraora went
to their rooms.
A fow minutoa later the inevitable
clement of 'inatoiialisin stepped Into
this pathetic chapter of international
hlhtory, for the court ladies wont
bribkly to work ordering their rjourn-
ring from London. The wheels of the
world wore jarrod when tho announce
ment camo. but in thla palaco at Os
borno everything pursued tho usual
conrso. Down iu tho kitchen they
were cooking a hugo dinnor for an as
semblage, tlio like of which has seldom
been known iu England, and the' din
ner preparations proceedod just as if
nothing had happened.
Tho body of Queen Victoria was em
balmed nud will probably be taken to
Windsor Saturday. The coflln arrived
last evening from London.
It waa thought that the queen was
dying about 0 o'clock In the evening,
and carriages woro sent to Oiborne cot
tage and tho rectory to bring all the
princes and princesses and the bishop
of Winchester to her bedside. It
seemol then very near the end, but
when things looked the worst, tho
queen had one of the rallies due to her
wouderful constitution, opened her
eyes and recognized the presence of
Wales, the prlucosses and Emperor
Four o'clock marked tho beginning
of tho end. Again the family wero
su'nmonod, nnd this time tho relapse
was not followed by reoovery.
The Prince of Wales was very much
affected when tho doctors at last In
formed him , that his mother had
breathed hor Inst. Emperor William
was also deeply affected, but did his
best to minister comfort to his sorrow
stricken uucle, whoso now dignity he
was tho first to acknowledge.
From all parts of tho world there
aro still pouring into Cowps messages
of condolence. Thoy come from
crowned heads, millionaires, trades
men and panpors, and aro variously
addressed to the Prince of Wales aud
the king of Eugland.
Kmperor William's' arrangements
aro not settled. Hia yacht will arrive
today, but it ia believed ho will not
depart until after tho funeral.

The report ot Major Hills, inspector

tain of tho port, and contradioted the
editor nnd the merchants who had

latter being specified under the Span
ish law. Bice was summoned to tbo
olllce of the governor-general 's military
secretary, and was called upon to
promise that he would publish no more
such articles. He declined to give
such a pledge, but Insisted that the ar
ticle was tiuthful, and took up a-deQ-ant
attitude when threatened with de
portation. The deportation order was
then issued, and Bice is now nwaiting
