aries to the pageant were 1 aped about
in suitable order
The ceremony of the coronation and
anointment was accotuplished as fol-
lows: The metropolitan of SI. Peters-
burg moanted the steps of the throne,
placed himself in front of the emperor
and invited his majesty to make, before
his faithful subjects, his profession, or-
thodox and faith and |.p'sented him
with an open book from which the em-
peror recited the symbol of faith. After
this the metropolitan of St. Petersburg
pronounced the ritual: "Gratia spirit us
sancti sic sompcr tecum. Amen." After
the reading of the holy gospels the em-
peror arose, and, taking off the col-
lar of the order of St. Andrew, ordered
tho imperial mantle with collar, in dia-
monds of that order, be presented him.
They were presented and his majesty
put oil the mantle. The metropolitan
of St. Petersburg then pronounced the
words: "In nomine Patris et Filii et
Spiritus Sancti. Amen."
His majesty received the pontilicial
benediction from the metropolitan of
St. Petersburg.
After the prayers terminated the em-
peror ordered the imperial crown to be
presented him, which was done and he
placed it upon his head. The metropol-
itan then in a loud voitto pronounced
the prescribed allocution. In a similar
manner his majesty caused to be pre-
sented to him the scepter in his right
hand and the globe in his left hand and
seated himself upon the throne for a
few moments. Then his majesty arose
and placed tho scepter and globe upon
the cushions.
The monarch then culled upon her ma-
jesty, Empress Alexandra Feodorovna,
to approach, and she knelt before him
on a velvet cushion richly embroidered
with gold. His majesty, thereupon,
solemnly lifted the crown from his own
head and touched with it the forehead
of the empress. He then replaced the
crown upon bis own head. His majesty
then took up tho crown of theempress
and pi act d it on the head of her uinj< --
ty. This done her majesty took her
seat 011 the throne.
The archdeacon next proclaimed the
imperial title in cxten. ■■ and intoned
voices rendered "Domi: • snlvum fac
impcratorem" and "Doniine sal' .11 fac
imporatriceni," followed iy "Ad multoM
runos," which the choir repeated three
After the chanting the bells of the
cathedral and of all other sacred edi-
fices throughout the city wero rung and
a salute of 101 cannon shots fired.
The emperor then arose and knelt
down immediately to recite from the
book presented to him by the metropoli-
tan of St. Petersburg the prayer 1 re-
scribed for the occasion. The mi troj •>!-
itan and those present then knelt and
in the name of tho nation oiV red up
prayers to the Almighty. After the
prayers tho metropolitan of St. Peters-
burg read a short allocution to the em-
peror and the choir intoned theTel). iun
to the sound of bells in all the churches
and the Kremlin. During this cere-
mony the czar stand with bared head.

Victohia, 13. C., May 27.—A terrible
accident occurred here yesterday by u
bridge giving way, carrying with it a
crowded streetcar. A sham battle and
review was to take place at Maeanley's
Point, near Esquiqiault, in tin* after-
noon and crowds were making tliepr
way there. All the way the tram cars
were packed. Two cars left Govern-
ment street with upwards of 100 people.
The first got over Point Elliee bridge,
which crosses at Victoria, safely, but
when the other was about half way over
the middle span of the bridge, about 150
feet in length, gavo way and the car
plunged into the water UK) feet below.
The car was completely submerged and
all 011 board were drowned with the ex-
ception of some of those 011 the plat-
forms who managed to save themselves
by swiining ashore.
Seventeen of the bodies have been
found and the work of identification is
proceeding, but it is a difficult matter as
a great man y bodies are those of visit-
Win 11 the bridge broke there were
several carriages 011 the bridge and these
also w re precipitated into the water.
Superintendent Wilson was driving one I
of these and had Ins five children with j
him. He succeeded in saving himself N
and four of the children, the fifth, a lit-
tle boy. was wedged between the iron
bars and drowned. Tho sad affair has
cast a deep gloom over the city. As
. 011 as the 11 w-s of the accident reached
M :euule\ Po it the review was brought
to a sp< rv termination, as, under the
circumst .u , ii was impossible and the
sham li^ht was abandoned.

Salt Lakh City, May 27.—Monday
was an eventful day in the attempted
solution of the Scandinavian Methodist
church mystery and one that has fur-
nished a wry strong clew with refer-
ence to tlii suspected fate of Miss Hen-
rietta Clausen. When tho charred re-
mains of a human skeleton were taken
from the furnace in tho basement at
midnight on Wednesday last tho search-
ers were baffled at not finding some ar-
ticle of absolute identification. They
were informed by the doctors that it
was strange that not one of the woman's
teeth were among the relics of the cre-
mation. It was known that Miss Clau-
sen wore false teeth and the doctors say
they would be the last to yield to the
terrific heat. In order to ascertain, if
poss&lo, if the missing teeth could not
be brought to light, a m< -t thorough ox
animation of the furnace was made.
Police officii's carefully se; relied tin*
furnace and found two t eth containing
metallic rivets. This is re aided by tho
police as being tho most positive evi-
dence of murder that has vet been
brought to light.
A vast amount of earth was also re-
moved in tho b.e e men t of the church,
revealing a number of bones. A certain

Tariff and Flnanee Occupy the Atten-
tion of the Senate.
Wasiiinoton, May 27.—Tariff and fi-
nance each came in for a share of con-
sideration in the senate yesterday.
Early in the day Mr. Sherman sue-
corded in having the filled cheese bill
taken up, win reupon Mr. Dubois (Rep.,
Ida.) offered an amendment adding 75
cents per barrel to tho tax on beer.
Mr. Sherman opposed the amendment
as a skillful means to defeat the cheese
bill. His motion to table the Dubois
amendment was defeated; yeas, 25 5
nays, 80,
On the question of adopting tho
amendment the debate became general,
Senators Mills and Gray supporting and
Nelson, Aldrich and Vilas opposing it.
The bill and ponding boor amendment
were displaced at 2 o'clock by the bond
bill which was advocated by Mr. Pricli-
ard (Hep., N. C.) and opposed by Mr
Lindsay (Di m , Ky.).
A bill was passed to pension nt $75 a
month the widow of General Georgo
Spencer, at one time United States sen-
ator from Alabama.
The house, by a vote of 1(15 to 00,
passed the bill for the repeal of section
01 of the tariff law, providing for a re-
bate 011 alcohol used ill the arts and med-
icine compounds. A11 amendment was
attached to the bill providing for a joint
commission, to consist of three mem-
bers from each house, to examine and re-
port 011 all questions relating to free al-
cohol at the next session.
The oppt s lion to the measure canio
almost entirely from the eastern and
New England states. All analysis shows
05 Democrats, 11 Republicans and 5
Populists voted for the bill, while00 Re-
publicans and 0 Democrats voted against
