PRINCE f WALES ON SHORE AT QUEBEC Great Demonstration at the Ancient Capital Addresses of Welcome to the Prince A Rumor About Lord Roberts Calgary Man Elected Grand Chancellor-Mr. Conybeare Gets a High Office Quebec, July pictures- que and ancient city of Quebec, has witnessed brilliant scenes on its river and its shores down through thi: gone-rations, but the- scene en- acted today when the Prince of Wales landed for the Tercentenary crowned them all in brilliance, in "stately cer- emonial and in impressive grandeur. From dawn nothing was heard, in the city but the talk of, thp Prince's coming and when at length H. M. S. Indomitable with the Prince and suite on board and H. M. S. Monotaur, loomed into sight around Indian Cove early in the afternoon, cheers went up from thousands of people crowded onfall parts of the city that com- manded the river view. Then the thunderous roar of big guns on the Indomitable and on the citadel broke'lorth and salute and counter salute followed each other in rapid succession till the ships tak- ing part were gradually lost to view in enormous clouds of white Imoke that puffed out from them on every side and slowly rose up from the riv- er to obscure the high rocky slopes and break .the purple outlines of the distant hills. Slowly and majestical- ly the Indomitable and Monotaur made made their way up the stream and finally dropped anchor at King's wharf. Below them were the French and American warships and close at hand ships of the Brih-h North At- lantic fleet. King's wharf, like the whole of the city, had improved and decorated almost out of recog- nition. On the wharf itself was a great as- sembly of distinguished people: His Excellency Earl Grey, Lord Roberts, 4he Duke of Norfolk, Sir Wilfrid Lau- rier, Admirals of fleets in port, Lieut- Governors of various of the Dominion, and higher representatives of military.
