BANFFSHIRE. 

The County of Banff Las an area of 435,251 acres, or 680 square miles. Under orders 
issued by the Boundary Commissioners in November 1890, considerable alterations were 
made in the area of the County, as from 15th May 1891. Under these orders, there were 
struck off from the County the portions it previously contained of the parishes of Bellie, 
8336 acres ; Rothes, 851 acres ; Gartly, 6339 acres ; and Glass, 4732 acres. Under the same 
orders, there were added the portions of the parishes of Boharm, 7835 acres ; Inveraven, 
1588 acres ; and Keith, 1883 acres — formerly parts of Morayshire ; and from Aberdeenshire, 
a detached portion of King-Edward, 1081 acres, and a portion of Cabrach, 1465 acres. 
The total extent subtracted was 20,258 acres, and the extent added, 27,401 acres. By 
these changes, Banffshire, while gaining in acreage, lost in rental, the aggregate rental 
of the parishes added being £6610, while for the portions subtracted it was £8972, 
Banffshire thus losing a rental of £2362. Besides the foregoing, the parish of St Fergus 
and part of the parishes of Old Deer and New Machar, which were all situated in Aber- 
deenshire, but formed parts of Banffshire, were, by orders issued by the Boundary 
Commissioners on October 24, 1890, declared ' to cease to be parts of the County of 
Banff,' and to ' form parts of the County of Aberdeen.' 

The length of the shire from N.E. to S.W. is 67 miles ; greatest width, E. to W. on 
coast line, 32 miles ; narrowest part, between Keith and Boharm, about 9 miles ; average 
breadth, 12 miles. The Cairngorm Mountains form the Southern extremity, Ben Macdhui 
(4296 feet) being partly in Banffshire. On South and East, Banffshire is bounded by 
Aberdeenshire ; on the West, by Inverness and Morayshires, the river Spey being the 
boundary line for about 17 miles ; and on the North, by the Moray Firth. 

The County, as modified by the Orders of the Commissioners, comprises 22 Civil 
Parishes — namely, Aberlour, Alvah, Banff, Boharm, Botriphnie, Boyndie, Cabrach, 
Cullen, Deskford, Fordyce, Forglen, Gamrie, Grange, Inveraven, Inverkeithny, Keith, 
Kirkmichael, Marnoch, Mortlach, Ordiquhill, Ilathven, and Rothiemay. 

There are 11 Parishes Quoad Sacra — namely, Buckie, Enzie, Gardenstown, Glenlivet, 
Glenrinnes, Macduff, Newmill, Ord, Portsoy, Seafield, and Tomintoul. 

The County contains two Royal Burghs, Banff and Cullen, and seven Police Burghs — 
namely, Macduff (which is also part of the Parliamentary Burgh of Banff), Portsoy, 
Buckie, Keith, Dufftown, Aberchirder, and Aberlour. 

Population in 1891, 64,190, forming 13,748 families, living in 12,707 houses. The 
proportion of inhabitants to each square mile is 90. Population of the various parishes, 
and other particulars in following pages, are according to census of 1891. Valuation, 
£264,111 7s. lid., or including Royal Burghs, £281,466 3s. 7d. 

Fully one-third of the area of the county is arable, and an advanced system of 
agriculture is practised. The tenure is almost universally nineteen years' lease ; and 
farming is generally conducted upon the five and six years' rotation of cropping. On 
clay and heavy soils, in the lower district, along the coast, wheat is grown, but the 
grain crops are for the most part barley and oats. 

In 1897, the total acreage in the county under all kinds of crops, bare fallow and 
grass, was 160,033 acres, compared with 160,000 acres in 1896. Under corn crops, there 
were, in 1897, 57,195 acres, compared with 57,760 acres in 1896. The following gives the 
acreage under the various corn crops for the two years, the figures for 1897 being given 
first :— Wheat 12—1, barley or bere 10,965—9096, oats 45,980—48,379, rye 66—122, 
beans 127 — 99, peas 45—63. Under green crops, there were in the county, in 1897, 
25,238 acres, compared with 25,380 acres in 1896. This acreage was made up as follows, 
the figures for the previous year following those for 1897, viz. :— Potatoes 1958 — 1984, 
turnips 22,242—22,368, mangold 17—5, cabbage, kohl-rabi, and rape 6—4, vetches or 
tares 997 — 1004, other green crops 18 — 15. There were under clover, sainfoin, and 
grasses under rotation 63,693 as compared with 63,206 in 1896. Of this there were for 
hay 9139 acres, as against 10,137 acres in 1896 ; and there were 54,554 acres not for hay 
as compared with an acreage in 1896 of 53,069. Under permanent pasture, or grass not 
broken up in rotation, exclusive of mountain and heath land, there were in 1897 
13,794 acres, as against 13,533 acres the former year. For hay there were 1209 acres in 
1897, and 1956 in 1896 ; and not for hay there were in 1897 12,585 acres, and 11,577 
acres in 1896. One acre was devoted to flax, compared with 8 acres in 1896 ; 20 acres 
were under small fruits, being a decrease of 1 acre ; and under the head of 'bare fallow ' 
there were 677 acres, as compared with 615 acres in 1896.

BANFF COUNTY COUNCIL. 

Tbe third County Council, under the Local Government (Scotland) Act, 1889, was 
elected on December 3, 1895. To initiate procedure in the first County Council, there 
were included four ex officio members — Lord-Lieutenant of the County, Convener of the 
Commissioners of Supply, Chairman of County Road Trustees, and Chairman of Local 
Authority under Contagious Diseases (Animals) Acts. In the election in 1892, the 
ex officio members as such were dropped, and all the members now represent an electoral 
division of the county. The elections took place on the divisions fixed by the Boundary 
Commissioners. Under an order of the Commission, issued in November 1890, the 
Banffshire portion of the Parish of Bellie, which was represented in the Banffshire 
Council by a member, was, from 15th May 1891, annexed to Morayshire for all pur- 
poses, and to provide an electoral division in place of the alienated territory, the Com- 
missioners divided the Parish of Inveraven into two electoral districts — Inveraven and

* In the cases of Ord and Cabrach, the allowance for polling- clerk is included 
in the returning officer's fee. 

In almost all the parishes and school districts, the fees to returning officers, above 
specified, are exclusive of allowances to polling clerks and of the necessary outlays 
disbursed by them for printing, postages, stationery, posting notices, &c, and for making 
copy of the electoral roll when authorised by the Department. 

Where the number of polling stations is not stated above, it is believed there is only 
one.

UIRr VALLED TEAS. 

THE lessened duty and the continued enormous importation enable us to 
offer for Cash our UNRIVALLED TEAS at the following Prices per 
lb., weighed without paper: — 

1/- 1/2 1/6 1/10 

These Teas are the rich and varied products of the 

Gardens of India, China, and Ceylon, 

and are sold as they arrive in all their freshness and fiagrance direct from 
the Chest. 

No packeted Teas are allowed into Stock, as Tea when put into packets 
rapidly loses all its distinguishing characteristics, crispness and flavour, by 
humidity of climate, or contiguity to smell-yielding things. 

Those who retain their preference for the highest qualities and selected 
growths of Tea now participate in the full reduction made on the other kinds. 

COFFEE. 

N either a Mixture of Coffee and Chicory nor those so-called Essences of 
Coffee possess much of the true character of fine Coffee. Seventy years' ex- 
experience has taught the undersigned that Coffee, like Tea, is improved by 
blending several sorts together. MOUNTAIN JAMAICA, COSTA RICA, 
and MOCHA COFFEE form one of the best blends, and this the Subscribers 
are at present selling for 

TWENTY PENCE PER POUND.

Jubilee," on the 20th of June, 1897. 

This event gave rise to enthusiastic demonstra- 
tions of loyalty, pride, and exultation, which the 
memories of these sixty years fully warranted. 
The Celebration may be said to have lasted from 
Saturday, the 19th of June, till far on in July, and 
was on a scale never before known in Great 
Britain, or, perhaps, in any other land. 

We propose here to give an account of the 
various events of these remarkable Diamond 
Jubilee days, confining ourselves chiefly to the 
description of rejoicings in which Her Majesty 
herself took part. 

The Longest Reign. 

Nearly a year before the national celebration 
of ihe Diamond Jubilee— it was on the 23rd of 
September, 1896 — the reign of the Queen became 
the longest in British history. On that day Her 
Majesty surpassed the limits of the longest rei^n 
hitherto recorded in our national annals, namely, 
that of her grandfather, George III., who reigned 
for fifty-nine years, three months, and four days. 

* * * * 

Her Majesty has now reigned much longer 
than any other European sovereign, and of all 
reigning monarchs she is the oldest, with the 
exception of the King of Denmark, who is her 
senior by about eleven months. 

Of the European monarchs of the past, no one 
has .urpassed her reign in length except Louis 
XIV. of France — Louis the Great — who came to 
the throne in 1643 and died in 1715. But though 
Louis succeeded in 1643, he was only then a little 
boy of five years old ; his true reign did not begin 
till the death of Cardinal Mazarin in 1661. Our 
Queen, on the other hand, was able from the first 
t j assume the duties and responsibilities of her 
high station. 

* * * * 

In English history the four monarchs who, 
after Her Majesty, have reigned longest are — 
naming them in order of time — Henry III., who 
reigned fifty-six years; Edward III., fifty years ; 
Elizabeth, forty-four years; and George III., 
as we have said, fifty-nine years. 

But these figures, except in the case of Eliza- 
beth, give only the nominal, not the actual, 
period of the reign. Henry III. was a minor, 
only ten years old, when he came to the throne ; 
so was Edward III. — he was fifteen. The reign 



of George III., too, practically came f) an 
end nine years before his death. We all know 
the sad and impressive story of how, sightless 
and with shattered intellect, he passed his last 
days of nominal sovereignty. 

A Military Tattoo. 

The Jubilee Celebrations may be said to have 
had their official commencement on the night of 
Saturday, the 19th of June, at Windsor Castle, 
when Her Majesty and the other members of the 
Royal Family, who were her guests at the Castle, 
were present at a military tattoo, given in the 
Queen s honour by the troops of the Windsor 
ganison. 



The tattoo, unfortunately, took place in dis- 
agreeable weather, rain falling continuously 
throughout its performance and marring to 
some extent what proved to be, even under 
these adverse conditions, a highly impressive 
display. The scene of the pageant was the 
grand quadrangle. 

Thanksgiving Services. 

Most appropriately, it happened that the 60th 
anniversary of Her Majesty's accession fell on a 
Sunday. Thanksgiving services on the 20th of 
June formed a fitting prelude to the great 
national solemnity which was to follow two days 
later. In all parts of the Empire, and in all lands 
without its borders where our countrymen are 
gathered together, as well as from many who are 
allied to us neither by blood nor a common 
allegiance, heartfelt thanks ascended to Heaven 
for the prolongation of a reign which has brought 
manifold blessings not upon the British Empire 
only, but upon the whole race of man. 

* * * * 

The Queen herself, with the membe-s of the 
Royal Family slaying at the Castle, and the 
Court, were present at a service held in St. 
George's Chapel, Windsor. It was a quiet 
ceremony of an Unofficial »nd almost of a family 
character. 

The Prince and Princess of Wales and many 
other members of the Royal Family, together 
with the Colonial Premiers who had come to 
this country to join in the Jubilee rejoicings, ami 
many of the Ambassadors and Peers, with repre- 
sentatives of the learned professions and societies, 
attended a solemn celebration at St. Paul's. 

At Westminster Abbey the Peers were present*. 
in their robes, while the House of Commons, 
headed by their Speaker, went in procession to a 
Service at St. Margaret's.

The Nonconformist churches and chapels 
honoured the great occasion in similar ways. 

The Queen arrives in Town. 

The Queen, accompanied by the Empress 
Frederick, Princes? Christian, and Princess 
Henry of Battenberg, left Windsor Castle for 
London shortly before noon on Monday, the 21st 
of June, and reached Paddington at 12.35 p m. 
Paddington Station was profusely decorated, 
and a large number of officials of the Great 
Western Railway, representatives of local bodies, 
and others, were assembled to receive Her 
Majesty. The Royal party drove from the 
station to Buckingham Palace, receiving enthusi- 
astic greetings all along the route from immense 
crowds of spectators. 

* * * * 

In the afternoon all the foreign Princes who 
had arrived in London for the Jubilee celebra- 
tions were entertained to luncheon in the Palace, 
and in the evening there was a State banquet, at 
which the Queen was present. Her Majesty 
afterwards held a reception, to which wire 
invited foreign Princes and Envoys, with their 
suites, Indian Princes, Colonial Premiers and 
their wives, and officers of the Imperial and 
native Indian escorts. 

The Programme for the 22nd of June. 

The great celebration of Tuesday, the 22nd — 
the central and most conspicuous event of the 
whole of the Jubilee rejoicings — was a progress 
made by Her Majesty through the leading 
thoroughfares of the capital. 

The route planned for the procession was as 
fallows: It was to start from Buckingham Palace 
and proceed along Constitution Hill, Piccadilly, 
St. James's Street, Pall Mall, north side of 
Trafalgar Square, past the National Gallery, 
Duncannon Street, Strand, Fleet Street, Ludgate 
Hill, to St. Paul's Cathedral, where a solemn 
service of thanksgiving was to be held. 

The Queen was then to return to Buckingham 
Palace by a circuitous route, proceeding along the 
south side of St. Paul's Cathedral to Cheapside, 
Mansion House, King William Street, London 
Bridge, Borough High Street, Borough Road, 
St. George's Circus, Westminster Bridge Road, 
Westminster Bridge, Bridge Street, Parliament 
Street, Whitehall, the Horse Guards, the Centre 
Mall to Buckingham Palace. 

The whole line of march of the procession had 
been brilliantly decorated ; and decoration, in- 
deed, on a more or less extensive scale had been 
attempted on private houses and business premises 
in all parts of London. There seemed to be a 
general resolve to celebrate the great event with 
an enthusiasm, a popular accord, and a splendour 
which would be without precedent in history. 

Early out of Bed. 

London — the heart of the Empire — knew 110 
rest all night. At dawn the streets were full of 
life. Perhaps never before in its history has 



there been in London so much wakefulness, so 
much rising with the lark. The breakfast hour 
was changed from eight to five o'clock. Before 
six o'clock, comparatively remote stations were 
packed with people. 

* * * * 

The morning, fortunately, was a pleasant one, 
though the sun kept behind the clouds. There 
had been promise of rough weather during the 
night, but by six o'clock there was the fairest 
possible prospect for the day. If there had been 
sunshine, the heat would have been oppressive. 
As it was, the temperature was cool and agreeable 
till the pageant of the day was almost over. 

* * * 

People from the outlying districts came in their 
thousands to London all through the night, 
murdering the sleep of the inhabitants on their 
lines of inarch. Midnight witnessed men and 
women taking their places at the south end of 
London Bridge as soon as it was closed for traffic, 
and early dawn found spectators occupying posi- 
tions in the neighbourhood of Trafalgar Square. 

In the Strand many walked up and down the 
street all night, determined thus to secure the 
most favourable positions. By seven in the 
morning the street was thronged with well- 
dressed people, and the windows had begun to 
fill with spectators who had come at that early hour 
to avoid the tremendous crush which everybody 
expected would make this narrow thoroughfare 
almost impassable as soon as the hour of the 
procession approached. But, as it turned out, 
tiese loyal citizens might with perfect safety 
have left their beds at a much later hour, for 
there was no crush in the Strand, and almost up 
to the last moment one had no difficulty in 
walking from Trafalgar Square to the Law 
Courts. 

At the West End. 

Before seven o'clock multitudes of people 
began to pour into the open space round the 
statue of the Duke of Wellington at Hyde 
Park Corner to secure places to see the pro- 
cession, and by eight o'clock the pavements 
were lined with sightseers twelve deep, whilst 
large numbers overflowed into the roadways, 
from which they had to be cleared by the police. 

All up Constitution Hill a continuous row of 
stands had been erected for the accommodation 
of guests. These stands were capable of holding 
several thousands, and by half-past eight in the 
morning there were left but few available seats 
in them. 

At Buckingham Palace by nine in the morning 
the open space opposite the Palace was already 
resplendent with soldiery, and every place where 
the general public was admitted was densely 
crowded. A brilliant assemblage was collected 
in front of the Palace.

Waiting at St. Paul's. 

Although the head of the procession could not 
reach St. Paul's until noon, the bulk of the seat- 
holders in and about the Churchyard had to be 
in their places by 9 o'clock ; while all approaches 
to the Cathedral were barred, even to privileged 
ticket-holders, as early as 10.30 a.m. 

* * * * 

Jn the vast congregation waiting the arrival 
of Her Majesty were many persons distinguished 
in politics, art, literature, science, and divinity. 
Lord Salisbury, Sir William Harcourt, Mr. 
Chamberlain, the Speaker, and the Home Secre- 
tary, wore the distinctive uniforms to which their 
services to the State entitled them. Repre- 
sentative Nonconformists were in black gowns 
and college caps, whilst the clergy of the 
Establishment, headed by the two Archbishops, 
were in surplices and hoods. 

A Preliminary Procession of Colonial 
Troops. 

By a happy thought, it was arranged that a 
separate procession of the Colonial troops should 
precede the Royal procession proper, and alter- 
wards line the north side of the Cathedral and 
the footways of Ludgate Hill until the Queen 
had passed. 

As commander of this notable body of troops a 
General was selected — one of the most popular 
and striking figures in the British army at the 
present time — Field-Marshal Lord Roberts. 

* * * * 

The Colonial contingent began to fall in on 
the Thames Embankment as early as a quarter 
to nine, and when the entire procession had 
been formed it marched to Buckingham Palace, 
proceeding soon after 9 o'clock along the route 
?'/a the Mall. 

* * * * 

The place of honour in the procession had 
been given to Canada as the premier Colony, 
and the Canadian troops heralded the approach 
of one of the most interesting personalities in 
the whole procession— the Right Hon. Wilfrid 
Laurier, Premier of Canada, who drove in a State 
carriage and four, with postilions, accompanied 
by Mrs. Laurier. 

* * * * 

Now followed the rest of the Colonial pro- 
cession, The New South Wales Mounted Rifles 
the Lancers of the same colony, and the Victoria 
Mounted Rifles, accompanied the Premiers of 
New South Wales and Victoria, who rode in the 
same carriage. 

Next came the New Zealand mounted troops, 
including several dark-skinned Maoris of fierce 
and warlike aspect. They preceded the Premiers 
of New Zealand and Queensland, who were 
followed by the Queensland Mounted Rifles. 

The Cape Mounted Rifles and the South 
Australian Lancers marched before and after the 
carriage of the Cape and South Australian 
Premiers. 

The representatives of Newfoundland and 



Tasmania followed next, and then appeared the ' 
Natal Carabiniers, with whom were representa- 
tives of the Umvoti, Natal, and Border Mounted 
Rifles. 

Following the carriage in which sat the j 
Premier of Western Australia and the Premier | 
of Natal, there came the mounted troops of the 
Crown colonies, including the Trinidad Mounted ' 
Rifles, the Cypriote Zaptiehs, and the Rhodesian 
Horse. Various contingents of colonial infantry 
prolonged the display, among them being native 
police from Borneo and from British Guiana, 
Hausas from the Gold Coast and the Niger 
regions of Western Africa, Chinese police from 
Hong Kong, quaintly attired to the European 
eye, Cingalese artillery and infantry, and police 
from the Straits Settlements. These last, by 
their martial bearing and first-rate marching, 
gained all suffrages. 

The Colonial procession occupied twenty 
minutes in passing a given point. 

The Great Procession. 

Close in the wake of this preliminary pro- 
cession came the second and main pageant. 

It had a stately precursor in the person of 
Captain Ames, of the 2nd Life Guards, who] 
enjoys the reputation of being the tallest man 
in the British army, and who, accoutred in th<-' 
splendid uniform of his corps, bestrode a magni- 
ficent black charger. 

Behind him rode four troopers of the 2nd I ife 
Guards. Then came a striking and picturesque 
contrast. With quick tread and lithenes; in 
every movement a large detachment of blue- 
jackets came into view, drawing with them ^ix 
field guns. 

* * * * 

Then once more the pageant assumed a mili- 
tary aspect as the advanced guard of the 2nd 
Life G.uards came into view, followed by the 
band of the Royal Horse Anil ery. With a 
thunderous roll and a clanking of metal, the 
"D" Battery of the Royal Horse Artillery ne\t 
swept by. 

Then followed a long and brilliant succession 
of squadrons of cavalry, a battery of Royal 
Horse Artillery concluding the procession of 
regiments. 

* * * * 

With nodding plumes and glittering uniforms 
the Aides-de-Camp of the Commander-in-Chief 
next rode by. 

More striking still, by the variety of uniform 
and equipment they presented, were the Aides- 
de-Camp of the Queen — military, naval, and 
marine— who took the next place iir the pageant. 

Immediately behind this cavalcade rode the 
Duke of Westminster alone, in the uniform of ' 
Lord Lieutenant of the County of London, 
mounted on a fine bay. 

In quick succession came the imposing Head- 
quarters' Staff of the Army, followed by truce 
Field Marshals. _ 

Then appeared a bewildering array of varied 
uniforms, representing almost every country in 
the world. It was the cavalcade of the suites, 
equerries, and gentlemen in attendance. 



"praise is always pleasant." 



The rear of this very cosmopolitan group was 
brought up by the noticeable figures of 
Major-General Miles, Commander-in-Chief of 
the United States Army, and General Hagron, 
Chief of the Military Household of the President 
of the French Republic. 

A slight pause in the procession, and then 
rode up the magnificent contingent of officers of 
the Imperial Service troops in the pay of the 
Indian native princes, under the majestic leader- 



ship of Lieutenant-Colonel Maharaj Sir Pertab 
Sing, Regent of Jodhpur, and A.D.C. to the 
Prince of Wales. 

Next came the Carriages. 

Now began the long file of carriages. Five 
dress landaus and pairs came first, conveying the 
foreign Envoys. 

Of these, the fourth contained — in some- 
what singular association —the Papal Envoy

"we are kings and queens when we rule ourselves." 



(Monsignor Sambucetti), attired in the con- 
spicuous garb of an Italian ecclesiastic, and the 
Yery Oriental figure of his Excellency Chang 
Yin Hun, the Chinese Ambassador. 

In the fifth carriage, with the French and 
Spanish Envoys, sat the Special Ambassador of 
the United States, the Hon. Whitelaw Reid. 
Mr. Reid was the only envoy who appeared in 
severely plain attire. 

The sixth and seventh carriages carried the 
ladies of the Household, the Lord Steward, and 
the Lord Chamberlain. 

The next carriage contained a pretty bevy of 
the little granddaughters of the Queen. These 
were the Princess Alice of Albany and the 
Princesses Alice and Ena of Battenberg. 

The next three carriages contained a number 
of Princesses of less note. Then appeared a 
series of carriages and four. In the first the 
seat of honour was occupied by Princess Charles 
of Denmark. Opposite to her sat the Duchess 
of Teck, and in the same carriage were the 
Princess Frederica of Hanover and the Princess 
of Bulgaria. 

The next carriage bad for occupants the 
Duchess of York and Princess Victoria of Wales, 
with the Princess Henry of Prussia and the 
Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. The 
Duchess of York was dressed in cream with a 
cream bonnet trimmed with pale blue. The 
Princess Victoria of Wales, like her sister, was 
attired in pink, Princess Henry of Prussia being 
dressed in white. 

The Duchess of Fife was the most conspicuous 
figure in the succeeding carriage, charmingly 
attired in white, and with her were the Grand 
Duchess of Hesse in heliotrope and yellow, with 
the Grand Duchess Serge of Russia and the 
Grand Duchess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz. 

The next landau conveyed Princess Henry of 
Battenberg, who was dressed entirely in white. 
In the same carriage were the Duchess of Saxe- 
Coburg and Gotha in pink variegated brocade, 
the Duchess of Connaught in cream, and the 
Duchess of Albany, who looked especially attrac- 
tive, in black and heliotrope. 

The next carriage was marked by still greater 
distinction. Two of the senior Queen's equerries 
rode by its side as a special mark of respect to 
its principal occupant, the Empress Frederick of 
Germany. The Dowager Empress was dressed 
in a beautiful gown of black and white, with 
bonnet to match. With her were seated the 
Princess Louise in a cream costume and a hat 
trimmed with pink, and opposite sat His Royal 
Highness the Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha 
and the Crown Prince of Naples. 



Then followed a numerous cavalcade of British 
and foreign Princes, in the first rank of whom 
were included the Duke of Fife and the Marquis 
of Lome. This royal bodyguard of princes num- 
bered thirty-six in all. Their presence gained 
greatly in significance to a public who knew 
the ties of blood which bound many among the 



lesser potentates to the Sovereign 'whom they 
had assembled to honour. 



The escort from the regular Indian Army next 
clattered by, to the accompaniment of loud 
cheers, followed by the Commander-in-Chief, 
Viscount Wolseley, with his baton of Field- 
Marshal in his hand and riding a splendid black 
charger. 

Now Comes the Queen Herself. 

The eight famous cream horses of pure Hano- 
verian breed, clad in heavy trappings of red and 
gold, with blue and gold on their manes, and 
each led by a Royal groom in gorgeous livery, 
now followed slowly, drawing forward the 
carriage in which was seated 

The Queen, 

the central figure of the day's rejoicings. 

Her Majesty, it was generally remarked, ap- 
peared to be in wonderfully good health and 
spirits. 

Her Majesty's dress and mantle were of 
black silk, both embroidered with steel and 
silver. The bonnet was of black lace, with em- 
broidery and diamonds, trimmed with a wreath 
of white acacia and an aigrette of diamonds. 
Her parasol was of white lace. 

Opposite to the Queen sat Her Royal High- 
ness the Princess ot Wales and Princess Chris- 
tian. The Princess of Wales was dressed in a 
lovely gown of pale heliotrope, trimmed with 
elaborate pearl passementerie, with a bonnet to 
match. Princess Christian was dressed in 
white, her bonnet being trimmed with crimson. 
At the back of the Royal carriage were mounted 
the usual two Highland attendants. 

* * * * 

Immediately in the rear of the Queen's carriage 
rode the Prince of Wales in his uniform of Field 
Marshal, with the Duke of Connaught on his 
right hand and the Duke of Cambridge on his 
left. Their Royal Highnesses, needless to say, 
shared to the full in the magnificent ovation 
accorded to the Queen. Following them came 
the Royal Standard, succeeded by the Gentlemen 
of the Household, including the Gold Slick of 
Scotland, the Marquis of Lothian, in the striking 
uniform of the Queen's Scottish Bodyguard. 
The rear portion of the escort then filed past, 
followed in turn by the fine contingent of the 
Royal Irish Constabulary. A squadron of the 
Royal Horse Guards brought up the rear of 
perhaps the most notable procession that London 
has ever witnessed. 

The Queen Speaks to her People. 

But before following this great procession on 
its onward march, we must tell how the Queen, 
before setting out, dispatched a message of thanks 
and good wishes to her subjects all over the 
world. At the Grand Entrance of Buckingham 
Palace was placed a telegraphic instrument, and 
when Her Majesty left the Palace, just as she 
was starting on her progress " for the purpose," J 



' NOBLE IS THAT NOBLE DOES.

THE END CROWNS THE WORK. 



as the official statement put it, "of seeing her 
people and receiving their congratulations," she 
touched a button which gave a signal for the 
following gracious words to be transmitted into 
oil parts ol her dominions : — 

From my heart I thank my beloved 
people. May God uless them. 

V. R. & I. 

From Buckingham Palace to Trafalgar 
Square. 

We have already mentioned the route arranged 
for the procession. It started from Buckingham 
Palace at a quarter to eleven, and when it 
began to move along its appointed course, guns 
boomed in Hyde Park and the bells clanged 
fom St. Paul's. It seemed then as though the 
laggard sun had come to the conclusion that it 
was time for him to be up and doing. He was 
routed as by a signal, and he did his duty nobly 
all the rest of the day. 

Up Constitution Hill, past thousands of Civil 
servants and their wives comfortably seated under 
the cool green trees, round by Hyde Park Corner 
into Piccadilly and past the great houses, the 
stream of gold and scarlet flowed like a sunlit 
river. The sight of it, the glory of it, the know- 
ledge of its true meaning, evoked immense en- 
thusiasm, devoted, of course, principally to the 
Queen. Nor was there room for doubt that Her 
Majesty accepted with no ordinBry pleasure, but 
with demonstrative delight, the tributes of eager 
loyalty which were showered upon her on every 
side. 

Probably in no part of the route traversed by 
the Royal procession were loyalty to the Sove- 
reign and a spirit of rejoicing more enthusiastic- 
ally expressed in artistic and effective decorations 
than in Piccadilly, from Hyde Park Corner to 
the top of St. James's Street. Crimson was the 
predominating colour in the decoration of houses, 
but dark and light blue were introduced in many 
instances with striking if not pleasing effect. 

* * * * 

St. Tames's Street had been transformed 
almost beyond recognition. Scarcely a window 
was to be seen. They were all obscured by huge 
temporary stands, rising up tier upon tier in 
many cases, from the basement even to the roof, 
and upon them sat hundreds, perhaps thousands, 
of fair ladies in the brightest of holiday attire. 
The street decorations were universally admired, 
and justly so. At the top and at the bottom 
of the street stood a pair of handsome gilt 
Corinthian columns, while white masts were 
planted at short intervals all the way up on 
either side, from the tops of which festoons of 
flowers spanned the roadway, forming one long 
floral bower, the masts themselves being embel- 
lished about 10 ft. from the ground with clusters 
of natural flowers and surmounted by a crown. 

* * * * 

Almost every house in Pall Mall is a well- 
known club or a public institution ; and the 
pavilions, decorated with draperies of every 



conceivable colour, which rose tier above tier in 
front of these premises, were crowded with men 
eminent in the Church, in literature, science, 
art, medicine, in all branches of the naval, 
military, and civil services, and in politics. 

On the side-walk, standing a dozen deep, and 
packed close together, were the masses, just as 
varied in their character— for here were not only 
to be seen the costers from the contiguous i-'even 
Dials, but the denizens of the French and Italian 
quarters that lie just behind Leicester Square, 
just as happy, just as good humoured, as the 
favoured occupants of the pavilions, stands, and 
windows. 

* * * * 

At Trafalgar Square, where the Peers sat 
below the National Gallery, and at Charing 
Cross, the scene was of the most brilliant 
description. 

The Strand, Fleet Street, and Ludgate 
Hill. 

The procession now moved up the Strand. 
And he:e was witnessed the interesting cere- 
monial of the reception of Her Majesty at the 
entrance to the City by Lordon's Chief Magis- 
trate. At the Griffin, which forms the substitute 
for the old and more picturesque, if more ob- 
structive, Temple Bar, the Lord Mayor was in 
waiting. When Her Majesty arrived, the Lord 
Mayor, attended by the other civic officials, 
advanced with the mace reversed and presented 
what is known as the "Pearl Sword" to the 
Queen, at the same time congratulating her upon 
her visit to her most loyal City of London. The 
Sovereign courteously returned the sword, and 
thereupon the Lord Mayer remounted his horse, 
and bareheaded rode back at great speed thiough 
Fleet Street towards the City in order to receive 
the Queen at the Mansion House. The per- 
formance gave great amusement to the crowd, 
and it was noticed that the Queen, the Princes, 
of Wales, and the Princess Christian joined in 
the merriment. But the Lord Mayor was an 
expert horseman, and sat his animal well. 

* * * * 

In Fleet Street and Ludgate Hill the pre- 
dominating colours of the decorations were 
purple and gold. Fqiuire columns, surmounted 
by tripods bearing fl )wers, were erected at 
short intervals on either side of the street, and 
garlands of flowers were stretched from column 
to column. The obelisks in Ludgate Circus wee 
draped in purple and gold cloth, with embossed 
shields and palms. 



One of the most pathetic and heart-stirring 
spectacles of the whole route traversed by the 
Queen was witnessed in Fleet Street, where were 
assembled seventy-four of the gallant survivors 
of the famous Balaclava charge. 

The Open-Air Service at St. Paul's. 

Just before half-past eleven the thousands 
waiting at St. Paul's saw the proud figure of

'you live but once, so make the most ok life.

Cathedral. 

* * * * 

When the Royal carriages passed into the 
Churchyard, they were drawn up in a semi- 
circle, so that they formed a brilliant setting to 
a brilliant picture. The Queen came in the 
midst of pomp unparalleled to the front of the 
noble church. Her retinue of princely horse- 
men, Indian and European, reined up in a line 
inside that, of the Royal carriages. 



On the steps of the Cathedral stood the Arch- 
bishop of Canterbury with bis two sons as train- 
bearers and his chaplain with cross. To the 
tight of him was the Archbishop of York with 
his train-bearer ; and to the left the Dean of St. 
Paul's, the Bishop of London, the Archdeacon of 
London, the Bishop of Winchester, and the IXan 
of Westminster. 

* * * * 

As soon as Her Majesty arrived, the open-air 
service was proceeded with. First of all, there 
was sung, to music by G. C. Martin, Mus.Doc, 
Organist of St. Paul's, the " Te Deum Lau- 
damus." This was given by five hundred 
choristers and accompanied by the massed bands 
ol the Royal Aitillery and the School of Military 
Music. Then the Dean, Canons, and Minor 
Canons said—" O Lord, save the Queen." To 
which came the answer, "And mercifully hear 
us when we call upon Thee." This was followed 
by "The Lord's Prayer." The Bishop of 
London said a special prayer composed for the 
occasion. The Archbishop of Canterbury then 
pronounced the Benediction, and after that was 
sung "All people that on earth do dwell.'' 

* * * * 

As soon as the Queen's carriage had drawn up 
in front of the great steps a copy of the service, 
bound in roval red, had been handed in. The 
Princess of Wales took it, and offered it to the 
Queen. Her Majesty preferred, however, to be 
unencumbered, and during the singing of the 
"Te Deum" the Queen absorbed eveiy feature 
of the scene before her, raising her eye-glasses 
now in this direction and now in that. 

During the prayer and the Benediction, Her 
Majesty bowed her head reverently. When 
ihe Old Hundredth was struck up, the Queen 
was much touched, and her lips moved in unison 
with the vast congregation. 

* * * * 

When the previously-arranged programme of 
the service came to an end, there followed 
perhaps the most impressive incident of the 
service. The choir and multitude, by a com- 
mon impulse, burst into the strains of " God Save 
the Queen." 

At the conclusion of the National Anthem the 
Archbishop of Canterbury, departing from the 
prescriptions of etiquette, called for three cheers 
for the Queen — an invitation which was answered 
with indescribable fervour. This appeared to 



give much pleasure to Her Majesty, who smiled 
and bowed repeatedly. 

* * * * 

When the service was over — it did not last 
more than a quarter of an hour — there was an 
interval of five or ten minutes while the other 
carriages in the Queen's procession were falling 
into line again, and the foreign princes, who had 
formed a semicircle two deep round the Cathedral 
railings, got under weigh. 

Ihe Queen seemed still anxious to take in 
every feature of the remarkable scene, and her 
eyeglasses were never idle. She then beckoned 
to the Bishop of London, who was standing im 
mediately in front of the carriage door, and 
chatted smilingly with him for a minute or two. 

She then motioned to the Archbishop, who 
also conversed with Her Majesty. The Bishop 
of London was then again sent for, and had some 
further conversation with the Queen. 

Her Majesty then turned to the other side, 
and beckoned in turn to the Prince of Wales, 
the Duke of Cambridge, and the Duke of 
Connaught. 

From St. Paul's. 

When the procession resumed its march, the 
sixteen carriages containing the Envoys, the 
Princes, and the Princesses preceded that of the 
Queen. Passing the serried ranks and tiers of 
sightseers on the south side of St. Paul's, the 
Queen again stirred the popular enthusiasm to 
its depths ; and the Colonial Contingent, passing 
over this portion of the route for the second time, 
enjoyed further prcof of the extreme goodwill 
with which it was regarded by the British people. 
The advance was now along Cheapside iu the 
direction of the Mansion House. 

* * * * 

Her Majesty arrived at the Mansion House at 
a quarter to one, calling forth a great demonstra- 
tion of loyalty on all sides, in cheering and the 
waving of hats and handkerchiefs. When the 
carriage reached the centre of the pavement in 
front of the Mansion House, where a red doth 
had been laid down, the Lord Mayor presented 
the Lady Mayoress to Her Majesty, and the 
Lady Mayoress offered to the Queen a bouquet 
contained in a silver basket. Her Majesty 
graciously accepted the offering with a bow. 

The ceremony only lasted a few moments, 
and when it was finished the Queen's carriage 
drove off amid renewed cheering. 

* * * * 

In King William Street private effort had not 
expended itself lavishly in decoration. The 
buildings on either side of the road were but 
sparsely adorned with flags and drapery, and ot 
originality or elaboration of design there was 
but little to be seen. The decorations of the 
street proper were, however, on a more ambi- 
tious scale. The famous Monument was also 
decorated so as to be hardly recognisable. 

* * * * 

On the decoration of London Bridge it- 
self every care and effort had been lavished. 



NONE CAN BE GOOD TOO SOON. 




THE QUEENS CARRIAGE PASSING ALONG PALL MALL. 
( Plioto by EymmonSx do, Chancery Lane. J 



Venetian masts were placed on either side at 
spaces of about twenty yards. From these de- 
pended double festoons of evergreens twined wiih 
many-coloured ribbons, the upper festoon hanging 
between pole and pole in one long, graceful curve, 
and ihe lower arranged in a number of shorter 
curves. Banners and bunting flew from every 
mast. 



Crossing London Bridge, the Queen obtained 
a good view of the new Tower Bridge, the 
bascules of which were raised and lowered in 
order lo exhibit to Her Majesty the actual work- 
ing of the bridge. The public were excluded 
from London Bridge, and a strong force of Volun- 
teers lined it on both sides. 

From the bridge the procession took the 
route by way of the Borough High Street, the 
Borough Road, St. George's Circus, and West- 
minster Bridge Road. The loyalty of the 
crowds on this part of the route was in every 
way equal to that displayed in the City, and 
the good behaviour was also excellent. Some 
very large stands on the route were occupied by 
great "crowds of people. 

In the Neighbourhood of the Houses 
of Parliament. 

Westminster Bridge was kept clear of spec- 
tators dining the passing of the procession, but 
fcridge Street had every available inch of foot- 
way occupied, and the stands for the accommo- 
dation of Members, officials, and journalists, 
erected on Speaker's Green and in New Palace 
Yard, being largely tenanted by ladies, pre- 
sented a brilliant appearance. 

* * * * 

Upwards of 600 members gave in their names 
for places on the Speaker's Green Stand ; but a 
number of these— Cabinet Ministers, Household 
officials and others — were unable to attend per- 
sonally, having duties to discharge elsewhere. 
Nevertheless, there was a large and representative 
gathering, and Her Majesty was obviously im- 
pressed by the warmth of the greeting accorded 
to her as she passed the legislative precincts. 

The head of the procession reached the Houses 
of Parliament at 1.30 precisely. When the 
Queen's carriage appeared in sight the occupants 
of the Members'stand rose in a body, and Radicals 
vied with Unionists in demonstrating in practical 
fashion their loyalty to the Throne. 

* * * * 

Towards Whitehall a scheme of combined 
decoration was afforded by an avenue of flagstaff's 
profusely garlanded with wreaths and festoons. 
J he individual adornments in Parliament Street 
were also effective, but without any striking 
originality, unless one excepts the quaintly- 
worded inscription, " 60, not out, and well 
played ! " in which the technicalities of the 
national game were pressed into the service of 
congratulation. 

To many of those who witnessed the spectacle 
in this neighbourhood must have occurred the 
thought that here, in the hour of perhaps the 



greatest triumph that the principle of Monarchy 
has ever achieved in this country, Her Majesty 
was passing the historic scene of its greatest 
tragedy. 

* * * * 

The Treasury, as befitting the guardian office 
of the national purse, exhibited a severe frugality 
in the scope of its decorations. The Home and 
Colonial Offices were, however, judiciously em- 
bellished with trophies of national colours sur- 
rounding shields which bore appropriate arms. 

The Return to Buckingham Palace. 

Before one o'clock the troops who had been 
employed in the neighbourhood of Buckingham 
Palace returned, after having had refreshments 
served out to them, to their former positions in 
front of the Palace, and the guards of honour 
were re-formed. 

The Royal procession came straight clown the 
centre avenue of the Mall, and the troops com- 
posing it turned off to the right on reaching the 
roadway in front of the Palace and passed up 
Constitution Hill for the second lime. This 
course was followed by all the procession except 
the mounted foreign representatives, the escorts 
of Royal Princes, and the Indian escort, who 
formed into semicircles on either side of the outer 
gates, and there awaited, a glittering throng, the 
arrival of the Queen. This was probably as fine 
a scene as any that had been witnessed through- 
out the whole length of the route. 

The stately progress of Her Majesty past 
Carlton House Terrace and the gardens of St. 
James's Palace, Marlborough House, and 
Clarence House, in all of which garden stands 
had, of course, been erected, was marked by 
enthusiasm as indisputable as that shown two 
hours before. 

When the Royal carriage, drawn by the eight 
celebrated cream-coloured horses, with their 
trappings of gold and brilliant ribands, ap- 
proached the Palace, and when all the assembled 
Princes — many of whom are to be rulers in their 
turn— saluted the Sovereign, it would have been 
impossible to exceed the fervour of the popular 
demonstration. 

* * * * 

Thus, then, did Her Majesty's jubilee progress, 
or rather triumph, end. Surrounded by the 
Princes of all the great Kingdoms of the world 
she re-entered her Palace, as she had left it, 
amid manifestations of loyalty and love. 

* * * * 

Her Majesty left the Palace at a quarter to 

eleven, and she returned at a quarter to two, so 
that the procession and service together occupied 
exactly three hours. 

A Royal salute of sixty guns fired from the 
Guards' ground in Hyde Park announced that 
the Queen had completed her Royal progress. 

How Many People Saw the Procession ?

worked the question out, and gives as the result

an estimate of rather over a million and a half of 
people, the details roughly being as follows : —

Few Accidents to Sightseers. 

An interesting feature of the day was the work 
of the St. John's Ambulance Brigade, which 
undertook the relief uf those who should be hurt 
or overcome by the heat. The force consisted of 
fourteen litters, seven waggons, 102 nursing 
sisters, forty surgeons, and over 700 men, in- 
cluding inspectors and assistants. 

* * * * 

Over 1,000 calls were made on the department 
during the day. The great majority of the 
attacks of illness were fainting fits, most of 
which were sufficiently treated to allow of the 
sufferers returning to their homes at once. The 
number of serious accidents was unprecedented!)' 
low. 

The Metropolis Illuminated. 

At night London was a blaze of illumination. 
There never was witnessed anything like it 
before, and in no capital of any nation was ever 
so much money expended for the purpose of 
commemorating a great reign or a momentous 
event as in the chief and mother city of the 
various realms ruled over by Queen Victoria. 

* * * * 

The illuminations in the City were truly mag- 
nificent, befitting, indeed, the exceptional event 
which they were intended to commemorate. 
They were also on a most extensive scale, there 
being not a single thoroughfare of any impor- 
tance throughout the one square mile which did 
not have some display more or less noteworthy. 
In many side streets, too, there was some token, 
humble thougli it might be, to, show the love 
that is felt for the Queen. 

* * * * 

The electric illumination of St. Paul's dome 
was unique. The work was done on the search- 
light system, the light being thrown on ' the 
building by seventy search lights, chiefly worked 
from the summits of neighbouring houses. The 
cross was strongly illuminated, and the dome 
appeared to be lighted from within. The whole 
light thrown on the dome was calculated to be 
equal to the illuminating power of 140,000 
candles. 

* * * * 

There was a superb display at the Mansion 
House. The columns of the edifice were de- 
corated with wreaths and baskets of flowers. 
On the top of the pediment was shown the 
" Star of India," while outlining the facade and 
a portion of the side of the building were pris- 
matic gas globes. The Royal crown was 
encircled by a wreath of laurels in incandescent 
gas lamps, and flanked on either side by the 
letters " V.R." in crystal gas lamps. The floral 



decorations entwining the columns were illu- 
minated with prismatic gas globes. Along the 
top of the building were twelve tripods with 
Roman flares. On the balcony steps were nine ' 
candelabra of prismatic gas lamps, each of which 
contained thirty lights. On the top of the side 
elevation of the Mansion House was placed a 
radiant sun in open gas, with the Royal mono- 
gram. 

* * * * 

On this display at the Mansion House about 
35,000 gas jets were used. The variegated lamps 
with which the whole facade was lined numbered 
about 5,000. 

The Bank of England was elaborately treated. 
Lines of crystal and amber illumination lamps 
were traced across the building from end to end, 
falling along the lowest row into festoons looped 
up with bows in deep ruby. The plinth over the 
centre portico bore the appropriate legend from 
Tennyson's " Ode to the Queen " : "She wrought 
her people lasting good." Over the legend 
appeared a cut crystal crown. 

The illumination on the front of the Royal 
Exchange was extremely simple, the object being 
to obtain the necessary effect as far as possible 
from the lines of the building. The pediment 
and frieze were outlined in small star-shaped gas 
flames. Round the columns themselves were 
traced continuous spiral lines of amber illumina- 
tion lamps, the amber being a tint of special 
richness and purity. Cut crystal letters " V.R." 
and arborescent dates appeared between the 
columns. 

On London Bridge the illuminations were most 
effective. Festoons of gas lamps were placed 
above the whole length of the parapets on both 
sides of the bridge, the lamps being carried by 
posts and the gas standards. The lamps 
ordinarily used on the latter had been removed. 
Temporary gas pipes had been put up, each of 
which bore ten large globes. 

In nearly all the thoroughfares of the West End 
the various devices in light and colour were some- 
thing to be for ever remembered. Considerations 
of space unfortunately prevent our entering into 
details. 

* * * * 

In Piccadilly and St. James's Street the illu- 
minations were of a particularly attractive 
character. There was scarcely a single building 
which had not some kind of illuminative display ; 
and these combined with the street illuminations 
and decorations in producing a blaze of light and 
colour. Many of the illuminations had been so 
arranged as to have varying degrees of brilliancy 
in different parts, one T^art attracting attention 
by its brightness and another by its richness of 
tint, which is essential to a good effect. By this 
means considerable variety was given to the 
whole composition. 

* * * * 

Taken altogether, the illuminations of London 
were worthy of the great city. It was no wonder 



"great actions encourage greater." 



that the vast and splendid display attracted im- 
mense crowds. 

Rejoicings at Home and Abroad. 

The celebrations and rejoicings in all parts of 



balloon ascents, public balls and displays of 
fireworks, were some of the many forms in which 
the public enthusiasm manifested itself. Many 
towns were profusely decorated, and in others 
there were illuminations at night. 




MARLBOROUGH HOUSE ENTRANCE: DUKE OF YORK S CHILDREN IN CARRIAGE. 
( Fho/o by Thomas, 4i~Cheapside., 



Great Britain were not less general or hearty than 
n London. The opening of public parks and build- 
ngs in commemoration of the Jubilee, the unveil- 
ng of statues, the laying of foundation stones, the 
planting of trees, monster demonstrations and 
processions, feasts to poor people, entertainments 
to school children, the firing of royal salutes. 



In all the British colonies and foreign posses- 
sions the Jubilee was celebrated wth remarkable 
cordiality. The English-speaking residents of 
many foreign towns also held fetes to mark the 
occasion. There were festivities at nearly all 
the British embassies and legations. Indeed, 
it may lie said that wherever our countrymen 



" PROVE YOUR WISDOM ; LIFE IS SHORT.' 



were found there was merriment of some kind 
in honour of the event. 

Bonfires all over the Country. 

All over the country bonfires, which had been 
prepared in readiness for a simultaneous display 
of beacons, were lighted at 10 o'clock. 

* * * * 

The total number of fires in England, under 
the auspices of the Diamond Jubilee Bonfire 
Committee, was 1,981 ; in Scotland, 30:, of 
which 53 were in Orkney and Shetland ; in Ire- 
land, 93 ; in Wales, 162 ; in the Channel Islands, 
6 ; and in France, 1. 

The largest number of fires counted from any 
point was from the Mendip Hills, where more 
than 200 were seen, the fires in South Wales 
being especially beautiful. From Broadway, in 
Worcestershire, 142 were counted, and trom 
many places from 70 to 100 were reported to 
have been seen. 

Considerable interest, not only in Scotland, 
but in the whole of Great Britain, centred in the 
loyal demonstration that was to be given on the 
summit of I!en Nevis, the highest point in Her 
Majesty's home dominions. Unfortunately, 
however, the weather was unpropitious, rain 
falling in a continuous drizzle. The bonfire, 
however, was lit at half-past ten. It was fifteen 
feet high and made a cheerful blaze, but no other 
light was visible. Nothing could be seen but 
mist, alas ! 

Law-makers at Buckingham Palace. 

On Wednesday, the 23rd of June, the Queen 
was again called upon to bear a prominent part 
in ceremonies commemorating her Diamond 
Jubilee. Early in the afternoon she received 
separately each House of the Legislature, who 
waited upon her — the Peers headed by the Lord 
Chancellor, and the Commons by the Speaker — 
to present to her addresses of congratulation. 



Unfortunately, by some mismanagement, a 
large proportion of the Members of the House of 
Commons had reason for feeling aggrieved and 
disappointed with the manner in which they 
fared in the Palace. Many, indeed, failed to 
witness the brief ceremony which brought them 
there. 

Town Councillors, Provosts and Mayors. 

On the same day on which Her Majesty 
received the Lords and Commons she received 
representative County Councillors, Provosts and 
Mayors, 

She also inspected in the Palace grounds the 
Yeomen of the Guard — a Royal Body-guard 
with over four hundred years of history. 

Ten Thousand Children. 

But the great event of the day was the review 
by Her Majesty of the least warlike portion of 
her subjects, the children of the Elementary 



Schools. They were gathered together to the :• 
number of io,coo on the temporary stands on 1 
Constitution Hill. It was a sort of Queen's s 
Garden Party in little, for each child had milk, 
and a bun and sweets at Her Majesty's bidding, . 
as well as a souvenir medal. 

As the Queen, accompanied by the Empress • 
Frederick, Princess Christian, the Duke of 
York, and other royalties, in succeeding car- 
riages, drove through the long lines of boys and 
girls, she was received with tremendous cheer- 
ing ; and she paused to receive addresses on 
behalf of various denominations of schools. 

An Evening of Rest. 

The Queen, after reviewing the ten thousand 
children, proceeded to Windsor, finding that 
pi ice in a fever of Jubilee. She now settled down 
at home in her castle, and entitled, if ever queen 
or woman was, to an evening of absolute peace 
and rest. 

Jubilee Dinners to the Poor. 

On the following day — Thursday, 24th June — 
the Prince and Princess of Wales were prominent 
at the Jubilee dinners to the poor, which owed 
their origin to Her Royal Highness's suggestion. 

The Princess, while expressing regret that she 
could not be present at all the dinners for '' my 
poor," personally visited some of the centres at 
which, to the number of 300,000, they were 
entertained. One of these was the People's 
Palace, set aside for the entertainment of 1,600 
crippled children of the East End, whose ages 
ranged from ihree to thirteen. Earl Compton 
made a speech of welcome, to which the Prince 
of Wales responded, before 6oolb of bee f , hun- 
dreds of fruit-pies, and thousands ol oranges, 
were demolished. 

Children, Firemen and Eton Boys. 

The Jubilee festivities at Windsor, of which 
the tjueen was the central figure, on Friday, the 
25th of June, were comparatively homely affairs. 
Her Majesty inspected some five or six thousand 
happy children, gathered from the schools of 
Windsor and the surrounding districts, and who 
had been entertained at tea in the Home Park. 
Merry-go-i»unds and swings were provided for 
their amusement. 

The proceedings with the children were not 
long, but they were pleasant and even touching. 
The brightest scene of all was when the little 
people, singing really admirably, gave '"God 
Save the Queen" with their childish voices. 
* * * * 

Next, the Queen inspected a magnificently 
representative array of firemen from all parts of 
the country, and the Royal borough was alive 
with brass helmets and firemen's axses. 



Lastly, the Queen was present at torch and 
lamp light manoeuvres by the Eton boys, and 
heard their voices in a selection of songs. 

A Brilliant Company. 

A dejeuner was given on this day by the Lord 
Mayor and Lady Mayoress in celebration of Her 



Majesty's Diamond Jubilee, and was attended 
by probably the most brilliant company that has 
ever been gathered together at the Mansion 
House. In addition to the Prince and Princess 
of Wales, the Duke and Duchess of York, and 
other members of our Royal Family, the guests 
included the foreign Princes and Princesses and 



In line after line, amounting together to a 
length of nearly thirty miles, as symmetrically 
arranged and daintily dressed as the finest 
regiment of guards paraded in Hyde Park on 
some gala day, a fleet of 173 vessels of war of 
all classes were assembled in Portsmouth waters, 
and were reviewed by the Prince and Princess of

on the invitation of the Queen. 

The Greatest Naval Review ever seen. 

One of the most impressive and splendid sights 
that has ever been witnessed since the earliest 
days of naval warfare was the Naval Review 
held in honour of the Diamond Jubilee at 
Spithead on Saturday, the 26th of June. It 
was in some respects an even more remark- 
able and characteristic feature of the national 
rejoicings than the great procession of the 
22nd. 



Wales on behalf of Her Majesty. The spectacle 
was witnessed by ships of all the Great Powers 
of the world. 

The British war vessels were arranged in four 
long and two short lines along the noble anchor- 
age between Portsmouth Harbour and the Isle 
of Wight, and outside them were two other lines, 
one composed of the war-vessels sent by foreign 
Powers to represent them at the review, and the 
other of special merchant vessels, which were 
crowded wi'h guests and visitors. 
* * * * 

The review attracted thousands of persons to 



" HE WHO STANDS HIGH IS SEEN FROM AFAR." 



Portsmouth. By Thursday night there was not 
a garret to be let, and on the evening after the 
review, owing to the closing of the shops in the 
day, there was even a scarcity of food. Even at 
some of the best-known restaurants breakfast 
could not be obtained on Saturday morning 
except by lodgers, and at one or two places 
chance customers could not even obtain dry 
bread. 

The weather on the morning of the 26th was 
fine, and it fortunately remained so during the 
whole course of the review. The atmosphere 
was fairly clear, and there was enough breeze to 
blow out the bunting and stir the surface of the 
water. 

* * * * 

From an early hour till close on the time 
appointed for the review, there was a continuous 
arrival at Portsmouth of trains, special and 
other, from London and elsewhere, filled with 
intending spectators. 

Among the first to arrive were the Colonial, 
Asiatic, and African troops, who marched from 
the railway station to the Town Hall, where they 
were greeted with an address of welcome by the 
Mayor, and then proceeded, amid loud demon- 
strations of popular enthusiasm, to Southsea 
Pier, where th?y embarked on the steamer 
Koh-i-noor. 

Nearly all t'ie foreign Princes and other 
distinguished visitors who had come to England 
for the Jubilee, a very large proportion of the 
member- ot both Houses of Parliament, and 
other p. -uiinent persons were among those pre- 
sent at the review. 

The Prince of Wales, accompanied by the 
Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha and the Duke of 
York, reached Portsmouth shortly after one 
o'clock, and went immediately on board the 
Royal yacht Victoria ami Albert. 

Precisely at two, the guns of a Royal salute on 
shore announced that the Royal yacht was under 
way, and a few minutes afterwards she was seen 
slowly steaming towards the Fleet, preceded, in 
accordance with ancient prescription, by the 
Trinity yacht Irene. 

The procession of yachts which followed in- 
cluded the Victoria ami Albert ; the Cartkage, 
with the Royal guests and their suites ; the 
Alberta, with other distinguished visitors ; the 
Admiralty yacht Enchantress ; the Wildfire, 
with Mr. Chamberlain and the colonial Premiers ; 
the Eldorado, with the foreign Ambassadors ; 
the Danube, with the members of the House of 
Lords ; the Campania, with the members of the 
House of Commons ; and the Eire Queen, with 
the guests of the Commander-in-Chief. 

This distinguished company proceeded to 
steam along a track which took them successively 
between all the lines of war-vessels. 

When the Victoria and Albert reached the 
head of the lines the Royal salute was taken up 
by the first division, taking its time from the flag- 
ship, and was subsequently repeated at intervals 
as the appointed stations were passed, each ship 
successively saluting the Royal Admiral as he 



passed, and giving him three lusty cheers from 
the whole of the ships' company. 

When the procession again reached the head 
of the lines the majority of the ships left for 
their respective stations, but the Victoria and ' 
Albert, preceded by the Irene and followed by 
the Alberta, turned again so as to pass between 
the vessels of the Fleet, and came to an anchor 
in the space provided for her abreast of the 
Renown, the temporary flagship of the Com- 
mander-in-Chief. 

Here all the flag officers present were received 
by His Royal Highness, and when this ceremony 
was concluded the Royal yacht weighed anchor 
and returned to Portsmouth, receiving as she left 
the lines three simultaneous cheers from every 
ship in the fleet. 

Shortly after the Prince of Wales had returned 
in the Royal yacht to Portsmouth Harbour the 
following general signal was made to the Fleet by 
Admiral Sir Nowell Salmon, the Commander-in- 
Chief:— 

" I am commanded by the Prince of Wales, as 
representing the Queen, to express his entire 
satisfaction with the magnificent naval display at 
Spithead and the perfect manner in which all the 
arrangements were carried out, and at his request 
I order the mainbrace to be spliced." 

The latter part of the signal refers, it may be 
explained for the benefit of landsmen, to^n extra 
ration of grog. 

* * * * 

So far the weather had been in all respects 
worthy of the occasion. Clouds, however, had 
gathered, and the Royal party had scarcely 
landed when a violent thunderstorm began. The 
rain fell with tropical violence, almost blotting 
out a view of the ships even in adjacent lines, 
and the thunder and lightning demonstrated the 
superiority of nature to the puny efforts of man 
in providing a Royal salute not unworthy of the 
majesty of the occasion. 

A Wonderful Illumination. 

At six o'clock the prospects of the evening's illu- 
minations seemed to be quite hopeless, and were 
certainly as black as a thunderstorm could make 
them. But evidently Nature was only taking 
her share in the festivities of the day, and re- 
frained from marring their punctuality or pre- 
cision by occupying more time than could be 
allotted for her contribution to the proceedings. 
By nine o'clock all was fair again, and so far as 
the spectacle was concerned the only effect of the 
thunderstorm was to leave a canopy of heavy but 
happily rainless clouds to darken the twilight of 
a summer sky. 

* * * * 

At the appointed moment, a quarter past nine, 
the Fleet, whose individual features had been 
gradually fading away in the gloaming, suddenly 
burst into an exquisite glare of universal but 
ordered light. The effect was enchanting alike 
in its suddenness and in its unexampled beauty. 

* * * * 

Between nine and ten the Prince of Wales 
came out in one of the smaller Royal yachts, the

Alberta, and steamed again through the lines to 
witness the illuminations, but as the yacht carried 
no lights except navigation lights, her passing 
attracted only momentary attention, and no 
ceremony was observed. On the Prince's return 
to the harbour soon after eleven, by which time 
the night was exceptionally dark for midsummer, 
and therefore unusually conducive to the bril- 
liancy of the spectacle, a final Royal salute was 
fired simultaneously from all the warships in the 
anchorage. The effect was again superb. E \c\\ 
ship became wreathed in masses of luminous 
smoke through which the flashes of the guns 
gleamed red and lurid. 

The last Royal salute was the formal close of 
this memorable day. The illuminations were 
still continued for a short space, but at midnight 
the flagship " switched off," and in little more 
than a minute all the Fleet was dark. Then was 
seen what had hardly been noticed before— that 
the steamers, large and small, and the yachts and 
other vessels which surrounded the warships on 
all sides had contributed not a little to the 
splendour of a spectacle which no one who 
witnessed it is ever likely to forget. Their 
illuminations remained brilliant for a short time 
longer, but soon the riding lights of countless 
vessels alone were visible, while overhead the 
stars, long obscured in the gloom left by the 
thunderstorm, began to reassert the eternal 
supremacy which human effort had dared for a 
few moments to rival and eclipse. 

The Queen Gives a Garden Party. 

A garden party was held at Buckingham Palace 
on Monday, June the 28th. which was favoured 
with Queen's weather, and may be regarded as 
one of the most interesting and successful in- 
cid nts of the Jubilee. 

It was nn the great lawn of Buckingham 
Palace garden, surrounded by tastefully deco- 
rated tents, that the garden party was held. 
Some of these tents were for refreshments, others 
for music, and others simply as resting-places 
for those who might find the heat of the sun too 
oppressive. It is said that there were no fewer 
than fi,oa-> persons present, but there was not 
the slightest appearance of crowding. 

* * * * 

The Queen left Windsor Castle shortly before 
noon and returned to town, visiting Kensington, 
where her coming was the signal for a great 
demonstration. 

Shortly after five o'clock her Majesty, accom- 
panied by the Empre-s Frederick, appeared at 
the garden party in a victoria, drawn by a pair 
of grey horses, and preceded by an outrider in 
scarlet livery. Her Majesty drove slowly twice 
round the lawn, bowing to her guests. 

On arriving at the tent Her Majesty alighted 
and sat down on a seat prepared for her. sur- 
rounded by her family and the more distinguished 
foreign guests If ere she remained until nearly 
seven o'clock, when she returned to the Palace 
in the victoria, again accompanied by the 
Empress Frederick, and respectfully saluted by 



all present. In the evening, after having held a 
brief farewell reception of the Royal visitors 
and special envoys, her Majesty returned to 
Windsor. 

Schoolboy Volunteers, Public Bodies and 
Poor Folk. 

On the afternoon of Tuesday, the 29th of 
June, the Queen reviewed in Windsor Great 
Park the Public School Volunteers, who were 
present in three battalions, of a total strength of 
3,679, under the command of Viscount Falmouth. 
The magnificent body of soldierly lads whom 
the Queen reviewed were the representatives of 
the great schools, public and private, in England 
and Scotland, which support the volunteer move- 
ment. No fewer than thirty-three schools were 
represented. 

On the following day, the 30th June, the 
Queen received and acknowledged at Windsor 
Castle loyal addresses of congratulations from 
the Corporation of Windsor, the Military 
Knights of Windsor, and the Corporation of 
Heading. 

Several hundreds of aged poor men and women 
were entertained to dinner and tea in the after- 
noon of the 30th, upon the Royal demesne, oppo- 
site the " slopes " at the Castle. Their ages ranged 
from sixty years upwards, and all thoroughly 
enjoyed the holiday. Tea was served at five 
o'clock. The Queen and the Empress Frederick 
drove to the Ride opposite the " slopes " shortly 
after half-past six o'clock to see the old people. 
Their Majesties were loudly cheered by the 
men and the womea waved their handkerchiefs 
as the Royal visitors drove slowly a'ong the 
avenue, and graciously acknowledged the loyal 
salutations of the crowds. 

A Great Review at Aldershot. 

A review at Aldershot, when nearly 30,000 
British soldiers, including a representative body 
of troops from the colonies and dependencies of 
the Crown, were paraded before the Queen, 
formed an appropriate and characteristic feature 
of the festivities of the Jubilee. 

* * * * 

The Queen, accompanied by several other 
members of the Royal Family, left Windsor 
Castle shortly after three o'clock on the afternoon 
of the 1st of July, and travelled by the South- 
western Railway to Farnlorough to witness the 
Jubilee review. 

The total strength of the assembled force was 
27,359 officers and men, 5,029 horses, and 57 
guns. 

Great numbers of spectators also travelled 
down from London, and the scene on Laffan's 
Plain when the troops were assembled and the 
spacious stands were crowded with spectators 
was a brilliant one. The greensward and the 
dark background of firs formed an admirable 
background for the many-hued spectacle. The 
weather was real Queen's weather. 



SOW GOOD WORKS, AND THOU SHALT REAP GLADNESS. 



Th^ Queen arrived on the review ground 
shortly after four o'c ock, and was greeted by a 
Royal salute from the guns and by loud cheers 
from the crowds of spectators. The march-past 
of the troops took place immediately after the 



was followed by the Royal departure from the 
review ground. 

Colonial Troops at Windsor. 

The Jubilee event of the 2nd of July was the

Queen's arrival at the Roval enclosure, the post 
of honour being assigned to the Colonial and 
Indian and African forces. After one or two 
other manoeuvres had been executed, the in- 
fantry line advanced and gave the Royal 
salute, following it with a roar of cheers. This 



inspection bv the Queen, at Windsor, of the 
Colonial and Indian troops, to the number of 
76 officers and 86S non-commissioned officers 
and men. 

The men were entertained at dinner in 
marquee-s in the Home Park, and the officers 



" WISDOM IS THE LEAST TROUBLESOME TRAVELLING-PACK.' 



in the Castle. At five in the afternoon the troops 
Were drawn up in line in a part of the Home 
Park bordering on the Thames, and Her 
Majesty rode past and inspected them in her 
carriage. They then marched past, and Lord 
Robert?, at the Queen's command, expressed the 
great pleasure it had given her to see so many of 
her subjects from the different colonies there. 
She hoped they would return to their homes 
in safety, and wished them every happiness 
and prosperity. 

A number of officers and representatives from 
each contingent having been presented to Her 
Majesty, the review closed with a Royal salute 
and the playing of the National Anthem. 

Entertaining Members of the House of 
Commons. 

On the afternoon of Saturday, the 3rd of July, 
the Queen gave a garden party at Windsor 
Castle to the members of the House of Commons 
and their wives. The guests included nearly 
every Member of the House except the Irish 
Nationalists. They gathered principally on the 
lawn in front of the east terrace, where, shortly 
after five o'clock, Her Majesty drove in a Vic- 
toria, accompanied by the Duchess of Saxe- 
Coburg, and a large number of members were 
presented to her at her special request. The 
Queen remained among her guests, who num- 
bered close on 1,500, for about an hour, and 
shortly after her withdrawal they returned to 
London. 

* * * * 

This pleasant and successful garden party 
made amends to the House of Commons for the 
misunderstanding which we mentioned in con- 
nection with the presentation of the address on 
Wednesday, the 23rd of June, by which many 
Members had not the pleasure of seeing Her 
Majesty, or Her Majesty the pleasure of 
seeing them. 

Jubilee Medals for Indian Officers. 

At an inspection of Colonial troops bv the 
Prince of Wales at Buckingham Palace on Satur- 
day, the 3rd of July, the Prince distributed with 
his own hand the special medal designed for the 
Diam-nd Jubilee to each individual member of 
the Colonial and other Imperial forces which had 
sent contingents on the great occasion. But the 
officers of the Imperial Service troops and the 
officers of the Indian native cavalry in England 
at the moment were not present on that occasion. 
The reason was that the Queen, having regard 
to their small number, and to the closeness of the 
connection between Great Britain and the Indian 
Empire, had decided that her strength would not 
be overstrained if she decorated them with her 
own hand. That proceeding took place on the 
5th of July, on the lawn beneath the East 
Terrace of Windsor Castle. 

Various Events of the Diamond Jubilee. 

We have now enumerated the chief events of 
this greit celebration. Many must remain tin- 
described, for to speak of all that happened would 



require volumes. There were State receptions, , 
banquets, balls, and evening parties, attended by 
all the rank and fashion there crowded into the 
metropolis. The poor, too, had their festivals, . 
a wise charity finding plenty of occupation in '1 
ministering to the wants of those who seldom 1 
experience the blessing of a good square meal. 
We might enlarge upon these features and give 
particulars, too, of the numerous presents received 
by Her Majesty from her own ch'ldren and 
grandchildren, from her household, from foreign 
potentates, and from her admiring subjects at 
home and abroad. We might speak of the long 
list of honours announced in connection with the 
Jubilee, and of the distribution of medals to 
mark the occasion. But enough has been told 
to show that the Diamond Jubilee celebration 
was a triumphant success, and the most remark- 
able event of the kind ever witnessed anywhere. 

A Letter from the Queen. 

A dignified and touching letter was addressed 
by Her Majesty to her people from Windsor 
Castle on the 15th of July. It was a message of 
thanks, divested of all the formalities of a Court 
and filled with true human sympathies for the 
"spontaneous and universal outburst of loyal 
attachment" from all her subjects throughout 
the vast Empire over which she rules, which had 
greeted her on the completion of the sixtieth 
year of her reign. 

The letter was as follows : — 

WINDSOR CASTIJ-, 

July /J, 'S97. 

I have frequently expressed my personal feel- 
ings to my people, and though on this memorable 
occasion there have been many official expres- 
sions of my deep sense of the unbounded loyalty 
evinced, I cannot rest satisfied without person- 
ally giving utterance to these sentiments. 

It is difficult for me on this occasion to say 
how truly touched and grateful I am for the 
spontaneous and universal outburst of loyal 
attachment and real affection which I have 
experienced on the completion of the Sixtieth 
year 0/ my Reign. 

During my progress through London on tlie 
22nd of June this great enthusiasm was shown 
in the most striking manner, and can never be 
effaced from my heart. 

It is indeed deeply gratifying, «- f ter s ° «««*> 
fears of labour and anxiety for the good of my 
beloved country, to find that my exertions have 
been appreciated throughout my vast Empire. 

In weal and woe I have ever had the true 
sympathy of all my people, which has been 
warmly reciprocated by myself. 

It has given me unbounded pleasure to see so 
many of my subjects from all parts of the world 
assembled here,' and to find them joining in the 
acclamations of loyal devotion to myself, and I 
would wish to thank them all from the depth oj 
my grateful heart. 

I shall ever pray God to bless them and to 
enable me still to discharge my duties for their 
welfare as long as life lasts. 

Victoria, R.I.
