Wound doing Well the Royal patient More cheerful and his Progress continued to be satisfactory to the medical attendants. No bad symptoms four announcements made from Buckingham Palace and All of same Tenor. His majesty Able to eat scrambled eggs and drink Hock and soda scenes in the streets Depar Ture of envoys. London. June 25. King Edward la still in a critical condition though his physicians in four bulletins issued during the Day and night said he continued to make satisfactory Progress. It will take Twenty fou r or forty eight hours at least How Ever to determine whether he will survive the ailment and consequent operation which have endangered his life. The first third official bulletins were signed by drs. Lister treves Smith Laking and Barlow and the signatures of treves Lak ing and Barlow were attached to the Sec Ond and fourth bulletins. Medical announce ments from Buckingham Palace follow Litso a. Iii Jia Jesty was very restless und Lind no sleep during the Early part of the Naglit.

Lie complains very Little of discomfort and is More cheerful. The wound is doing Well. The following statement was made this afternoon on the highest medical authority until the tubes now draining the cavity of the abscess have been withdrawn it will be impossible to feel certain that the King will pull through. What his physicians have now to fear is that peritonitis or Hemor rage May Supervene. There must always be this danger in such cases. Again it is a fact that an abscess due to purity Politis my have a fatal Issue without any warn ing symptoms. All the symptoms Are often masked until the postmortem and there Are Many cases on record where the disease was Only discovered after death from an extraneous cause such As an Accident. At any rate the King s illness must invalid him for a Long to eat. He had scrambled i Gas and Hock and soda last likening. London. June 23. Midnight. King Edward s condition to night is even More satisfactory than has been indicated by the last bulletin. He has made a decided improvement and the feeling at bucking Ham Falace is very hopeful. His majesty is Able to take nourishment he had scram bled eggs and a Little Hock and soda this evening and with his own hand to opened several telegrams. The bulletin issued about 11 o clock to night is regarded As being the first Occa Sion upon which the King s doctors have allowed themselves to express even to a Small degree the hopeful feelings they undoubtedly even though privately enter Tain. Thirty is x hours have now elapsed Tince the operation was performed and the absence of complications creates hopeful Ness in All quarters although As has been Frejus Eutzly said in these dispatches several Days must Pas before the possibility of danger can be eliminated. Notwithstanding the fact this is the eve of the intended Coronation d by and that London is now even More crowded with people than it was yesterday the scenes witnessed on the streets to night were in marked and pleasant contrast with those of tuesday evening. The reckless rejoicing which was then so disgracefully prominent Taj quite unheard of to night. Trafic Pur during the Day sued its Way unimpeded and even the most popular thoroughfares were comparatively deserted. No illuminations dispelled the natural gloom which settled Over the Metropolis. The Moon failed to penetrate the darkness Over the City and a rather cold wind was blowing. Quiet and depressed the crowds waited outside Buckingham Palace for the night s final news of the Sovereign. For several hours they kept their patient Vigil wander ing aimlessly but with palpable anxiety Over the open space which fronts the Royal residence. For some reason or another a feeling pervaded the crowds that if Tho King lived until to night he would live to be crowned. Inside the Palace All was quiet. Queen Alexandra who had been in the Vicinity of the sickroom the entire Day dined with a few members of the Royal family. The callers who came to the Palace in the course of the evening contented themselves with driving up to the outer Gates where they alighted and walked in to inquire at the Equer Ries Entrance for the latest news. There they met Only liveried servants and Small knots of reporters. With the exception of these callers and the noblemen who have the entree to the court everybody was rigidly excluded from the Palace by the police. Lord Grey a director of the British South Africa com Pany and who recently visited the United states 13 among those having entree to the court. He said to a representative of the associated press to night that he had Good Hope for the King s recovery and that he was sure that every englishman was deeply touched with the sympathy of the United states in the present calamity. Although lord Grey added such kind expressions of feeling Are Only what i should expect after my recent pleasant experience of american sir Frederick treves sir Francis ii. Laking and sir Thomas Barlow Are again spending the night within Buckingham Falace and they have arranged for sir Joseph Lister to join them in consultation in the morning. When a representative of the associated press applied at the Palace after Midnight last night just As the building was being closed up for the night it was Learned that there was nothing to be added to the last bulletin and that King Edward s condition continued to be satisfactory. It was further pointed out As an assuring sign that the 11 o clock bulletin had been issued after Only a Brief consultation and that it had not been deemed necessary to Call in sir Joseph Lister and sir Thomas Smith before issuing it. The representative of the associated press further ascertained with regard to the Brief and to some extent vague charac Ter of the bulletins which gave no information As to the King s temperature pulse etc., and which for this reason have been much complained of in some quarters that this is not due to a desire to conceal anything or to apprehension of the result of his majesty s illness. The doctors had the Case of the late president Mckinley in mind and in View of the fact that the crisis has not yet passed they were determined to Couch the bulletins in the most guarded language so that the Hope of the Public should not be unduly buoyed up. A feature among the endless expressions of anxiety concerning the King receive from All parts of the world is the extremely sympathetic tone of the Irish nationalist press in expressing its fervent Hope Fortis majesty s recovery. When the 11 o clock bulletin was posted on the Palace railing to night the Welcome words were read in silence and then the crowds slowly dispersed. Among the com ments made on the bulletin one could Hoar that of the whispered words. Thank women who had waited for hours to hear the Best or the worst and the grub Fer that s Good from the men. Nav of whom were in evening dress. Afer mid night the King s Palace was practically deserted. The first direct expression of opinion from Queen Alexandra was received to Day by the lord mayor of Leeds. Acknowledging a message of sympathy from the lord mayor. Queen Alexandra Telegraph Al his majesty is progressing thousands of persons visited Westminster Abbey to a y for the Sake of i Ewing. Even from the Street what would have been the Center of the National inside nor outside has the Abby been touched and everything there remains As it was when with cruel mockery Dummy King was crowned by the Arch Bishop monday evening. The Duke of nor Folk the Earl marshal has not yet decided to take any Steps whatever. Material and other results of the postponement of the Coronation Are cropping out hourly. Steamers from All parts of the world which timed their sailings to bring in passengers for the Coronation Are reach ing England constantly. When the news of the King s illness is received on Board there is Conter nation and the bitter disappointment of the passengers is quite pitiful to see. This is especially True in the Case of the White Star line Steamer teutonic passengers who had hoped that by sailing a Day earlier than the scheduled sailing late they would be Able to witness the ceremonies and to occupy the seats they had engaged months ago. Litigation is Al ready commencing Over contracts made with regard to seats accommodations and other arrangements dependent upon the Coronation and the naval review. The Many steamers which were chartered to witness the review will not be needed and this Point alone is Likely to make lots of work for the lawyers. The British sleet will remain intact at Portsmouth until next week but several of the foreign War vessels will leave there w. 9, 10. I y at Iii c Milace. Reception of Bullet his Honl visitors Upton s mat lenient. London. June 25. The reports which were circulated in new York to Day that King Edward was in a desperate condition were untrue. Sir Thorr As Lipton spent an hour at Buckingham Palace this afternoon and the associated press has his authority for making the announcement. The chances yesterday said sir Thomas were decidedly against hid re covery but you can say that at 2 o clock he was doing Well. His majesty s physicians Are satisfied with his Progress. The chances were then in his the King s mind is entirely Clear and while sir Thomas was at the Palace he received word that it was his majesty s wish that the arrangements for the dinner to about 500,000 of the poor of London july 5 should be proceeded with. Before to Morr morning Over a half million invitations will have been sent out. The dinner involves the employment of Over 6.s00 Stew Ards an army of waiters and 1,500 music Hall entertainers. All the arrangements arc in sir Thomas Lipton s hands and it can be imagined that he would not proceed with the final arrangements unless he and others were confident of being Able to carry them out. The King spent a quiet Day and the Lack of developments was regarded As greatly in his favor. No definite prognostication however regarding his chances of recovery is Likely to be publicly ventured by the Doc tors for several Days. Until this morning it was hoped that Friday s procession might occur on saturday the Prince of Wales taking the King s place. This was suggested especially for the Benefit of the colonial contingents and would have been almost purely a military display. The idea was abandoned to Day As the doctors said the King was Likely to be still in a critical condition on saturday and they could not be answerable for what any hour might bring Forth though so far no specially alarming symptoms had exhibited them selves. A favourable Factor mentioned by several of those at the Palace to a y was the King s adaptability to the severe regimen involved. He is an excellent two Vav m said a peer who had just seen one of the Royal family. He does everything he is told and does not worry unlike Many Royal personages. This considerably helps the doctors in their efforts to pull him a younger and thinner patient the King s Progress up to this afternoon would probably permit the doctors to the More optimistic but they Are carefully avoiding any possibility of inspiring premature re throughout the morning the Vicinity of the Palace was invaded by seekers after information. A curious cosmopolitan crowd gathered about the railings await ing the morning bulletin and directly after it was posted there was a great scramble to read its contents. The Prince of w ales arrived just As the first bulletin was being issued. Lord Lis Ter who came directly from the King s apartment alter having assisted in drawing up the bulletin left shortly afterwards and the More cheerful expression apparent on his face was taken As an indication that he was satisfied with the condition of the patient. Callers continued to arrive in great num Bers throughout the morning. Among the earliest distinguished personages were lord Salisbury who Rode up on a tricycle. Arch Duke Francis of Austria and the Duke of Norfolk. The Duke of Cambridge who arrived later had previously presented a s t of colors to t lie Middlesex regiment to which he said the King s illness was a very grave blow and a very trying Oik. But he added he was very Giad to be Able to speak Hope fully of the Progress made by his majesty because he received favourable new from those in attendance upon the King. Private information from Buckingham Palace substantially bore out the official bulletin issued at pm j o clock. Earlier unofficial reports however had been More favourable than the medical pronounce it. They spoke of the King shaving passed a Good night with l i t St and the aunt Uncein it of his majesty s is and Lack of sleep were regarded by the general Public As by no Means reassuring although court of class processed satisfaction. The absence of All mention of the patient s temperature caused comment although probably the statement that up to the present no in toward symptoms presented themselves is intended to indicate that there had been no dangerous Rise in temperature. In med ical circles the opinion was expressed that in the phrase just quoted the surgeon. Were saying All they possibly could. Infant the whole meaning of the bulletin was concentrated then in. The rest bin partly Cora Ivory the Day progressed the crowds Aroun Buckingham Palace augmented and the cautious to idling of the Early bulletin was much discussed. Soon after 2 p. The second bulletin was posted. It was regarded As being somewhat More favourable icon t in Chiton Palti. Col. 5j polio moving honoured m a i of i Astei of arts Feii hed by Vale l Xiv Hsitu.
