London, Jnn. -1. London today was
given a glimpse of tho customs of
medieval times. The quaint ceremonies
with which Kdwnrd VII. was pro
claimed king at vorloitH points of the

The olllcials purposely arranged the
function an hour ahead of the time an

James palace and the dty were llni'd
with' troops soon after daylight. About
10,000 soldiers, Life fjuaids. Horse
Ouards, Foot Guards and other cav
alry and Infantry regiments had been
brought from Aldershot and London
barracks after midnight. All the oill
cciH had mourning bands on their
arms, and the drums and brass Instru
ments were shrouded with crape.
The troops made an imposing picture,
but they were eclipsed by the spec
tacle presented hy the officials of the
College of Arms.
Tho ceremonies were 'begun at t.
.I.unes palace, where, at It o'clock, Kd
wurd VII. was proclaimed kins of the
I'nlted Kingdom of Great Britain and

decorations necessary In turning the

possible to hold this yesterday mom

be trausfotred this morning to the din

Thought That Coronation of Edward

lb Kxiluslie Wire Irom The .oeIutnl I"reM.
London, Jan. 24. An extraordinary
Gazette published an order in, council,
"that It Is expected that nil persons
upon the present occasion, the death of
her lato majesty of blessed and gloi
lotis memory, will put themselves Into
deepest mourning."
nothor older In council rubstltut
lug "king" lor "queen" and "Kdwnrd"
for "Victoria." It nlso Inset ts "our
gracious queen Alexandra, George,
Duko of Cornwall and York; and the
Duchess of Cornwall and York."
The fact that the court goei Into
mourning for a year and the further
fact that the public Is enjoined to go
into the "deepest" mourning, lead to
the supposition that tho coronation
will not occur until 190.;.
The Instruction thnt the Duke of
York Is lo be named In the prayer '
book "Duke of Cornwall" seems to
throw light upon the much-debated
question of the heir npparent's title, t
It was supposed that the title "Prince I
of Wales," which belongs only to a. I
son born of the king, would be con- '
f pi red upon the Duke of York by royal '
patent; but the Gazette announce
ment seems to indicate that this, will
not be done and that the Duke of
York will hi-urefnrth be known as tho
Duke of Coin wall.
King Kdward VII has been pro
claimed in many cities and towns of
the I'nlted Kingdom, the usual pro
cedure being that the mayor, attended
by the other members of the corpora
tion, has read tho proclamation In the
town hall or market place.

progress of the body of Queen Vletoiia

A Request for the Return of Public

resentative Favors Another Year
of Occupation.
fly Exclusive Wire from The Associated Press.
Peklu, Jan. 1C (Delayed In transmis
sion). The note which accompanied
the agreement delivered by the Chi
nese plenipotentiaries reiterated the
Chinese objections alieady published,
adding thereto a request for the Im
mediate return of the public buildings
to Chinese possessions, and the total
cessation of military expeditions. The
desire for a definition of the limits of
the legations was expressed, also a de
sire for the removal of the troops as
early a. possible.
German and French officials believe
it to be unwise for the troops to leave
I'ekln for several mouths. The French
especially object to what they call "the
cowardly behavior of other nations In
not protecting the Chinese Christians.1'
For that leason they say It will be
necessary to keep the tioops at least
another year. The Kngllsb, Americans
and Russians seemingly believe that a.
gradual withdrawal can bo made as
soon U8 the liver opens, about tho be
ginning of March.
Tho Chinese aie anxious to have the
indemnities payable to the different na
tions adjudged before an International
committee. A majority of the minis
ters here are of the opinion that their
governments may make separate ar
rangements with China.
The mlnlstei-s will soon hold a meet
ing to consider the next step lo be
taken. No formal reply Is to be sent
to the Chinese objections, but they are
to be considered.

The Now York Senator's Talk Upon
the Shipping Bill May Be Ono ol
tho Featuies Today House Con
tinues Consideration of the Naval
Appropriation Bill The Provision
for tho Increase Is Made Occasion
for Interesting Debate.
By Exchnilve Wlro fiom The Associated Iress
Washington, Jan. 24. The senate de
voted today to tho discussion of the;
Indian appropriation bill, making only
fair progress. The only Indication that
thero may die any diversion, of Inteiest
tomorrow was contained In an an
nouncement by Senator Frye that to
morrow he should move to afford an
oppottunlty to the senator from New
Yoik (Mr. Depew) to address the sen
ate upon thu shipping bill.
The discussion of the Indian bill was
frequently Interrupted by calls for a
quorum by Mr. Wellington (Md.), who
was insistent to the lust upon tho pres
uico of a full senate. Mr. Pettlctew
made an attack upon the Dawes com
mission, saying that there was nothing
to show thut theio was any chance of
the e-oniplotlon of tho work, even with
the $300,000 provided. The war revenue
reduction bill was reported from the
finance committee by Mr. Aldrlch. who
announced that ho would call It up
early next week. Mr. Gallinger nld
that he would call up tho pension ap
propriation bill when the Indian bllj
was out of the way, The only point of
Interest outRlde of the talk on the bill
was the declaration of Mr. Pettigrew
that ho did not Intend to make tiny
llllbtister against nny measure.
In the House.
The house today continued consider
ation of the naval appropriation bill
and practically completed it before
adjournment. One small mattpr went
over until tomorrow. Tho debate upon
the present naval bill has lacked the
Interesting and sensational features
of recent years. Tho fight which the
appropriation committee wages ngrtlnit
hydrographlc surveys under the aus
pices of the navy was abandoned thl
year by tho committee and several
other questions Including armor plate-,
which usually entail much dlsausslon
occasioned no comment whatever.
The provision for tho Increase of the
navy was mado the occasion of an In
teresting debate upon the length to
which the building of the navy was to
go and drew from Mr. Cannon, chair
man of the appropriations committee,
a notable statement to tho fleet that
when the ships now nuhorlzed and to
be authorized had been completed $320,
000,000 would havo been spent upon the
new navy and that In his opinion the
time lo stop will then have arrived.

the naval committee) to strike mil the
provision In the bill for two battleships
and two cruisers, was dofeatcel, 4G
