Prince of Wales, Emperor William of Germany and Other Members of the Royal Family, Watch by the Bedside of the
Dying Sovereign���King Edward VII. the Ruler.
Cowes,   Isle   of   Wight,   Jan. 22.
Queen   Viotorla Is dead   and   Edward
VII. reigns.    The great   event In   the
memory of generations, the most   stu
pendous   change   in   existing    conditions that could possible be imagined
has taken place. Quietly, almost gent
ly, upon the anniversary of the death
ot Queen Victoria's  father, the Duke
of  Kent, the  end of   a  career  never
equalled by any woman In the world's
history, came in a similar room in Osborne.   The most respected of all wo
men, living  or   dead, lay in  a  great
four posted bed, and made a shrunken
atom whose aged face and figure were
a cruel mockery o' the fair  girl   who
In 1837 began to   rule   over   England
Around   ber   were   gathered    almost
'very   descendant of; her   line.    Wei
within view of her dying  eyes   there
hung a portrait of tbe Prince Consort
It was he   who    designed   the   roon
and     every   part   of the  castle.     In
scarcely audible words the white haired Bishop of  Winchester   prayed   be
side her, as be had often prayed   with
his sovereign, for he was her chaplain
at Windsor.    With bowed  heads,   th
impei ions ruler of  Germany, the man
who   is  now   King  of England,   the
woman   who has  succeeded the little
old Queen, the  Princes  and   those of
less than royal   designation,   listened
to  the   Bishop's   ceaseless    prayers.
Six o'clock passed and the Bishop continued his   intercession.    One  of  the
younger children asked   a qnestion in
childish treble and  was  immediately
silenced.   The   women   of  the  royal
family   sobbed   faintly   and  the men
shuffled     uneasily.    At   exactly   half
and the Bishop of Winchester to her
bedside. She asked to see one of he:
faithful servants, a member of her
household. He hastened to the
but before he got there the Queen
had become somewhat better.
The Prince of Wales was very much
affected when the doctors at last informed him that his mother had
breathed her last. Emperor Will
lam, himself deeply affected, did hit
best to administer to the comfort of
bis stricken uncle, whose new dignity he was the first to acknowledge.
From all parts of the world there are
still pouring In to Cowes messages of
condolence. They come from crowned
heads, millionaires, tradesmen and
paupers, and are variously address
ed to the prince of Wales and to the
King of England. Emperor Wllliam'i
arrangement* are not settled. His come,
yacht will arrive here today (Wednesday) but   It   Is   believed   that  he
hand, and the people knew that Eng
land had lost her Queen.   The Bishop
pronounced   the    benediotion.     The
Qneen    passed    quietly,     peacefully
away.   She suffered   no  pain.    Those
who were now   mourners   went  from
tbe room.   The whole world was jarr
ed when the announcement came, bu
In the palace  at   Osborne  everything]
pursued  tbe   usual course.   Down   in
the kitchen thev ware cooking a huge
dinner for an   assemblage the like of
which   has    seldom  been  known  in
England and the dinner  preparations
proceeded just as if nothing   had hap
pened.
The body of Queen Victoria is being
embalmed tonight and will probably
be taken to Windsor Saturday. The
coffin arrived last evening from London.
An incident characteristic of the
Queen's consideration for others oc
curred tyro days ago, when in one of
the intervals of consciousness she summoned to suggest to her dressers, who
had been acting as nurses, to take the
opportunity of getting some fresh air.
Moudlt*- afternoon she asked that
little pomeranian be brought to her
bedside. Ii Was feared that the Queen
was dying, .and carriages were sent
to Osborne college and rectory to
bring all the   Princes   and Princesses
ed by her children and grandchildren.

The   lord   mayor   replied    to    the
Prince of Wales as follows:

memory will forever live in the hearts

Around the world���It said,���
The best-loved woman on the earth,
Is numbered with the dead."
Not one���but all her millions leal,
Are bowed with anguish keen,
To know that ne'er again they'll sing,
"Long live our noble queen."
In Canada we honor her.
And throughout all the land
We pray'd,"God save our noble queen,
Ood shield her with Ills hand."
Our Lady of the Maple Leaf���
In loyal hearts, serene
And ever holy we'll enshrine,
The memory of our Queen.

Nelson, B. C, January 22.
Queen   Victoria   is i dead.     Nelson!
learned   it   from the   tolling  of   the
bells immediately  after  tbe   message
came.    It   was   not   unexpected.    All
the world knew   that   the   Queen  of
Great Britain and Ireland lay upon
bed of death, and that   the   Victorian]
era  was rapidly   drawing to   a close.
Since Sunday morning the world   had!
been   awake  and waiting for what it
was sure would be tidings of death,but]
hoping that the end might be delayed
Monday came and with it the messago]
-that her    majesty    had     improved
Monday evening the improvement was]
still.maintained.    On   Tuesday morn
ing the first bulletin received in   Nel
son told of tbe fast approaching   end.
The members of the   royal family had]
been   called   to   the bedside of tbe 11
lustrious woman who lie there dying.
The message came privately to editors!
to "be prepared for  the   bulletin  <
the Queen's death at   any   moment,
Then there was   an hour of suspense,
broken   when   the message came  at]
lAst, "The   Queen   is  dead."   It was)
dated Cowes, timed at 6:55 p. m., and]
marked "official."
And   so came   the newB of the passing from earth of a great soul gone to
meet   its   maker.    Nearly sixty-three
years ago, on .June 2Hth, 1K38, she had
been proclaimed "Alexandria Victoria
hy the grace   of  God,   queen   of   thel
. United Kingdom of Great Britain and'
Ireland."   On   that day she stood, a
girl ot eighteen years, in the window
of the council chamber in   tbe   palace1
of St. .lames. Below her there appear
ea an innumerable multitude   and  ai
tbe loar of their voices proclaimed her
in truth their  queen,   it   is   recorded!
that I 'her face grew pale and her cyesB
suffused   with   tearB."   It was   then
that the   girl  became a woman, that
her   sympathetic, loving   heart   went
out to her people and that   she  loved
and was beloved.    And   on   that   day
was laid the foundation of an  united
empire. When Victoria became queen,
republican     sentiment      throughout
Great Britain was  manifest in   every
quarter. But the young girl sovereign
speedily won the affections of tbe peo
pie and last   evening   when   her  life!
went out more heads bowed  down   in|
sorrow and more tears were shed thai
have marked the passing of any otherj
person the world has ever known

When Queen Victoria breathed her|

King of Great Britain and Ireland

anthem has been changed to "God

F. Mourgues, engineer in charge of!
the Chapleau mine, arrived in Nelson
last night to assume charge of the
property. He is accompanied by his
wife and will mako his home here in
future.
Mr. Mourgnes will meet Luclen
Weyl, the company's financial mana
ger, here tomorrow and go out to the
mine. He did not expect to return to
Canada until March next, but certain
developments led to his leaving earl
ier. In referring to the Chapleau Mr,
Mourgnes states that one of the mat
ters which will require his attention
at an early date is that of securing an
economical and adequate process of
treating the concentrates from the
mill. In regard to the proposed
amalgamation of the Chapleau and
Kilo groups, Mr. Mourgues states that
while a deal is on, its culmination
one way or another is a matter of
months, one of the first steps to be
taken being that of a searching examination of the 24 claims comprising
the Kilo groups.
