Cowes, Isle of Wight, Jan. 28.—
Queen Victoria is dead aud Edward
The greatest event io the memory of
thio generation, the moot stupendous
change in existing conditions that
could possibly be imagined, has taken
pls* e quietly, almost gently, upon the
anniversary of the death of Queen Vic-
Coria's father, the Duke of Kent. The
end of thia carreer, never equalled bv
in« woman io the world's history,
came in a simply furnished room in
the Oelrorne House. This most re

girl who, in 1687, began to rule over
England. Around her wer> gathered
almost every descendant of her line.
Well within view of her dying eyee
there hung a portrait of the Prince
Gonaort. It was he who designed the
room and every part of the castle.
In scarcely audible words, the white
haired Bishop of Winchester prayed
lieeide her, as he had often prayed, for
he was her chaplain at Windsor. With
lowed heads the imperious ruler of
the German empire and the man who
is now king of England, the woman
who has succeeded to the title of
queen, the princes and princesses, aud
those of less than royal designation,
listened to the bishop's ceaseless pray
Six o’clock passed. The bishop conJ
tinned hie intercession. One of the
younger children asked a question in
, shrill, childish treble, and was immed
iately silenced. The women of thia
royal family sobbed faintly, and the
men shuffled uneasily.
At exactly half past 6, Sir James
Keid held up bis head, and the people
then knew that England had lost her

A few minutes later the inevitable
element of mateiialism etep|«d into
this pathetic chapter of international
history, for 'the court ladies wont
briskly to work ordering their mouru-

nothing had happened.
The tiody ol Queen Victoria was em
balmed and will probably be taken to
Windsor Saturday. The coffin arrived
last evening from London.
It was thought that the queen was
dying about 9 o'clock in the evening,
and carriages were sent to O borus cot
tage and the rectory to bring all the
princes and princesses and the bishop
of Winchester to her bedside,
seeme 1 then very near the end. but
when things Io ked the worst, the
queen had one of the rallies due to her
wonderful constitution, opened her
eyes and recognised the preeeuce of

Four o'clock marked the beginning
of the end. Again the family were
summoned, and this time the relapse
was not followed by recovery.
The Prince of Wales was very much
affected when the doctors at last in
that bis mother had
breathed her last. Emperor William
was also deeply affected, but did his
best to minister comfort to lite sorrow-
stricken uncle, whose new dignity he
was the first to acknowledge.
From all parts of the world there
are still pouring into Cowes messages
condolence. They come
crowned heads, millionaires, trades-
men snd paupers, aud are variously
addressed to the Prince of Wales and
the king of Englaud.
Emperor William's arrangements
are not settled. His yacht will arrive
today, but it is believed he will not
depart until after the funeral.
