Both Senators Burton and Pomerene wired that they cannot come but Congress- man Anderson was expected today With Governor Harmon and others.

National Commander John E Gill- hian arrived late v ebterdav Among the a decided opinion that it would have been much better had the countless thousands of dollars spent on the coronation been spent instead on the poverty-stricken people witn which the kingdom is now filled The need of this was made apparent by the thousands of people who hung about the grand stands all day and 'picked up the scraps that were drop- ed from the lunch baskets of those fortunate enough to have something to eat Lord Kitchener is also being blam ed for the lack of enthusiasm by the haish measures which he adopted to prevent any objectionable demonstra- tion being made by the populace AMERICAN HONORED BY KING GEORGE CORONATION NOTES Special Ambassador John Hays Hammond, of the United States wore the court dress that he has worn on all official occasions since his arrival in London It is known as a frock dress and consists of an ordinary black dress coat, a black waiscoat, knee breecnes of the same material as the coat, black silk stockings and black pumps with jet bows. Mr Hammond also wore a black crush hat This latter accessory is of the utmost importance, as silk hats are not permitted at great events m the abbey. Aside from the American newspaper correspondents the only Americans admitted to the coronation ceremonies in a private capa- city were ChailesP Taft, brother of the p.esident, together with h1S wife and daughter, and J P Morgan. Both were attired in court flrese of knee breeches with silver buckled slippeis and swords Mrs Taft and Miss Taft were elaborately gowned. -The oil with which King George was anointed was the purest dis- tillation from the finest olives, perfumed with various balsams and spices m accordance with the prescription in Exodus xxx-235, as fol- lows Myrrh, sweet cinnamon, sweet calamus ana cassia. These in- gredients had been previously macerated with the oil, which was strained off some time before the coronation Perhaps even for King George himself the elaborate ceremonial of the coronation was less of a strain than for the aged aichbishop of Canterbury Agitated as the latter was however, when the climax of the ceremony was reached, the signs of his nervousness were not so pronounced as in the case of the still more venerable Archbishop Temple, who was so unstrung at King Edward's coronation that he nearly put the crown on wrong side out and had to be helped bv His Majesty himself The royal salute of big guns which immediately followed King George's coronation was so arranged as to be fired practically at the same moment throughout the entire British empire The bisnr' tor it was ghen by a fanfare from the trumpeters m a gallery near the roof of Westminster Abbey From this gallerv elecrtic communication had been established with the general post office and the instant the first trumpet-note sounded the news was ticked along the line and a second later scores of operators were flashing it all over the isles and to the various English possessions abroad Fifteen Insurgent Republicans Openly Join Democrats And Gain Control OLD GUARD BEATEN BY DECISIVE Finance Committee Ordered to Report Wool Bill By July 10, As Beginning, Jury Completed And Attorneys Outline Case In Startling Statements DIEGLE SEEKS ARREST OF TURNER'S DETECTIVE Charged That He Talked With Jmor Branded By Defend- ant As Untrue, ciav Odd Fellows Pick Southern Ohio City For 1912 Grand Lodge Meeting WASHINGTON, June 22__Ths senate doors are now open wide for a revision of the tariff down- ward, a situation that may mean a session extending all through the summer.
