Anderson, of the Sandus- ky district, again faiil-ed today to se- cure action on his doHar-a-day pension bill, but he forced the leaders to an adjournment of the house "as the only means: of preventing! acttion. The democrats were put on record as op- posed to any pension legislation at this session, although they declare they will take the matter up at the regular session in 'December. Anderson took advantage of the failure of the house to adjourn over calendar Monday to call up his bill which has been on the committee dis- charge calendar for the last two nontha Representative Maecn of A-r- made a point o" no quoiom against the tall, but' it was found that i quorum was present.

Great Spectacle of Royalty has Been Commercialized And Stands Hide Beauty By CHAS. P. STEWART, j London Correspondent of the United Press. I LONDON, June is to- day on the eve of the most spectacu- lar event in her history, the crowning on Thursday of King George V. ana Queen Mary. Not that the crowning of this royal pair is of any greater importance than similar events in the past, but that the king and queen, both'with a love for ceremonials, and England and the world at large ap- parently clamorous for such a page- ant, have combined to make the func- tion the most sumptuous of its kind. Two days of torrential rains have worked great havoc with the decora- tions. They, have had no effect on the crowds, however, and London to day is so filled with .people -that- t.h The bill cannot be again called up mtdl the first Monday in July. Repre- sentatives Post and Sharp, of Ohio, voted with Anderson against' adjournment The attempt to bring up the bill was expected. Ever since the opening of he session the democrats, who did not include pension legislation on heir program, have prevented it com- ng up by adjournment over Monday, bus avoiding a direct vote. Saturday afternoon enough votes could not be mustered for such an adjournment the party whips' Drought in members, today to -save the leaders. The republicans supported Andersen in order to embarrass Un- derwood. streets are almost impassfl'ble. Thirty nine foreign envoys arrived today and were given great welcomes by the crowds. These eayoys included 20 princes asnd princesses-, eacih accom- panied b.y large personal suites. Arrangements are today completed After months of planning and execu tion, those in charge of the affair realize, although with nervous appre hension, that all has been done that can be done. So much ado has been made over the coronation that it is only natural that the expectancy of the people should not be unmixed with misgivings. Primarily, the coronation day pageant is intended to impress the king's subjects with the greatnes: of the institution of royalty and to create that enthusiasm for it, which in spite of all the.-royalists'' efforts is so inevitably dying but. With the decline, however, of its political in- luence, it is certain that never in :he history of such displays has any been turned so effectively to com- mercial account as the present one. From all over the world tourists and noney have been pouring into Eng- and. For weeks to come the tour- sts will remain, and the sum which London merchants and landlords will gather in from them is incalculable In their greed the traders have, in act, to some extent over-reached hemselves. The throng of visitors n the city is, to be sure, enormous 3ut there is little doubt that it have been far greater had not so many people, been frightened into re- maining away by advance news of he remorselessness with which they would be bled if they came. The commercialization of the eoro- lation ceremony has had still anoth- r effect.
