COLONIAL TROOPS REVIEWED.
Queen Alexandra Cheered Heartily
en Route to Parade Ground.
By Exclushc Wire from The Associated Press.
. Condon, July 1. The reappearance
today of Queen Alexandra as a partici
pant In it public ceremony practically
marks the end of tho period of anxiety
caused by King Kdwnrd's condition.
Her presence at tho review by tho
Prince of Wales of tho colonial troops
greatly Increased public enthusiasm In
that picturesque und interesting event.
More than 2,000 colonials were brought
in from the various encampments and
marched down Constitution Hill, .past
Buckingham palaq, which for a week
has been'tho centre of such supreme In
terest, und along the Mall to the Horse
Guurds parade. The contingent present
repiesented all tho nrltish empire out
side of the United Kingdom with the
exception of India, , Tho troops from
that country will be reviewed separate
The. Canadian detachment pumbeied
COO men, and was by far the largest
body on the parade,
Tho smallest detuchment In line con
sisted of three natives of the Island of
Borneo, Ceylon, FIJI, the West Indies,
Cyprus, the Gold Coast, Nigeria,
Uganda and other remote' colonies were
represented by native troops In cloth
ing of striking variety, while straight
from the lighting line In South Africa
were details from the Canadian scouts,
Kjtchenerte Horse and contingents
from number of local levies raised
durlpg the war.
The queen's appearance, while on her
way from the pojace to the Horse
Guards, was greeted with salvos of
cheers by the crowds which lllled the
streets. The spectators noticed that
the ordeal of the week had apparently
pot affected her majesty's health. No
signs pf the anxiety she had exper
ienced were seen on her face as she
cheerily acknowledged tho congratula
tions of the publlo over the uninter
rupted .progress of the King,
The queen was seated In an open car
riage, Beside here was tho Princess of
Wales. Opposite her was the Princess
Victoria, and Princess Charles of Den
mark, Several carriage containing tho
RuKc of Cambridge, the Duchess of
Conuought and others followed,
The, Prince of Waes was accom
panied by the, Crown Prhico of Su-
niark, Prince Frederick, Prince Charles
of Denmark nnd their suites, and by
tho foreign attaches, Including Major
K. B. Cassatt, the United States mili
tary attache. The Duke of Connaught
und Lord Roberts, the commander-ln
chief, surrounded by brilliant staffs
rode behind the Prln. of Wales' party.
The long lines of troops completely
filled the Horse Guards parade, and
their variegated uniforms stood out in
vivid contrast with tne trees of the
park. Among the interested onlookers
was Prince "Eddy" and the other chil
dren of the Prince and Princess of
Wales. All tho colonial premiers, In
dian princes and other guests of the
nation were present, as well as peers
and members of the house of commons
The troops quickly marched past the
queen's carriage, the Prince of Wales
receiving the salute. The queen then
drove slowly In and out of tho lines and
the Prince of Wales closely' Inspected
the troops and dismounted and con
ferred medals and crosses on those who
had merited tho honor, shaking hands
with the recipients of the Victoria
Then followed the most plcturesoue
feature of tho day. The Duke of Con
naught, at the head of the troops and
facing the Prince of Wales, In clear
tones gave the command, "The parade
will give three cheers for the king,"
and himself started tho cheer. In a
second It was taken up, and there rose
cheers such as London seldom hears,
the sound of which must have reached
almost to Buckingham palace, half a
mile away. Helmets, caps nnd cam
paign hats ro.se In waving confusion at
the bayonet's point and the assembled
crowds joined In with equal vigor. A
man in the Canadian ranks shouted,
"And a tiger," at which the troops and
croud once more yelled themselves
hoarse. It was the first occasion since
the announcement of the king's Illness
that tho general public had an oppor
tunity to vent their feelings, and the
people took advantage of It.
After this tho Life Guards rode up to
tho queen's carriage to the accompani
ment of "God Save the King" and
cheers uorunmlnglod with tears of tho
women, lpany of whom were deeply af
fected. Tho queen drove sdowly pabt
the troops to Buckingham palace, con
stantly bowing and smiling acknoivl-.
edgments of the people's -greetings.
Tho Prince of Wales and the other
members or the royal family followed.
Tho colonials reformed in columns, and
uinld hearty cheers from the crowds re
turned to their encampments.
Subsequently the Canadian troops
signalized Dominion day by gathering
at the Canadian arch and Whitehall,
where they went through a series of
evolutions and were afterward photo
graphed. The arch will be llhimlnutcd

Inquiry of the Eplhcopal church, recent
ly appointed by Bishop Dudley, of Ken
tucky, to investigate the charges
against Bishop Talbot, of Central Penn
sylvania, is scheduled to meet tomor
row at St. Stephen's Episcopal church.
The charges against the accused bishop
were preferred by Uo clergymen and
two laymen, of Philadelphia, and three
laymen of Huntingdon, and from the
specifications appear to bo violations of
the constitution and, canons of this dio
cese, breaches -of consecration vows',
and-,unjuHt)y and uncanuuically un

This case arose from the presentment
of tho Rev. Dr. Ingram N. W. Irvine,

was dismissed for conduct unbecoming
a clergyman. Dr. Irvine was tried ac
cording to tho canons, and convicted

and Uo laymen from tho diocese of

The Foreign Ministers Believe That
the Declaration Is the Result of the
Announcement of Mr. Conger That
the United States Sustains China.
By Excluslo Wire Irom The Associated Prcs.1.
Pekln, July 1. Tho taotal of Shang
hai has notified the bankers' commis
sion that China refuses to pay the July
Instalment of the indemnity except at
the rate of exchange prevailing April
1, 1901. The foreign ministers believe
that the taotal's declaration is the re
sult of the announcement of the United
States minister, Mr. Conger, to the
Chinese government that the United
States sustains China's contention and
Is willing to accept payment on the
basis mentioned. But the ministers arc
confident that China will accept the de
cision of the majority of tho ministers
when she Is convinced tnnt tho United
States is her only supporter.
Some of the ministers Insist that the
United' States' policy Is unreasonable
nnd In direct opposition to the terms
of the protocol. They assert that
Prince Chlng, head of the foreign of
fice, and other Chinese officials, before1
learning that China had tho support of
the United States in this matter ad
mitted that their arguments were
rather a plea for mercy than a de
mand for justice.
Great Britain proposes to permit sli
ver payment of the Indemnity until
1910, on account of China's great los-s
owing to tho depreciation of the price
of silver. The ministers of the other
powers regard the 'proposal as being a
further complication and as equivalent
to an numission ot umua s contention.
