A MAGNIFICENT SPECTACLE  ENGLAND   ALONE   HAD  THII  " Y     EIGHT  VESSELS.  Graphic Description of the Removal of  .the Body of the Dead Queen  to Portsmouth.  Portsmouth, February 1.���The  members of parliament and newspaper correspondents representing  every nation embarked on a small  steamer and were entertained at  luncheon as guests of the admiralty.  A gauze of fog hung over the still  waters^of the Solent and the warships appeared like gi-eat shapeless,  black rocks."- The ^fleet - stretched-  froth Portsmouth *to" Cowes,* "the'  turi-ets'of Osborne* standing tabove  standing  the purple hills. Abreast" were tlie  battleships. Beribow . and - Colling-;  wood, guarding the avenue,",'ten  miles long, through'; which :the  queen's body was/ to pass to the  mainland .of? the kingdom. -There  were 19 British battleships,- 11  cruisers and * 8 gunboats. Eight  naval ambassadors of - friendly  powers, were ranged "along*",, the  Portsmouth dock, and white; gunboats- and steamers with official  spectators formed the. remainder of  the' southern line. -The British  ships were an imposing' sight, with  their uniform' decorations, .coal  black hulls .with a- line' of red just  above the water, .white upper works  and yellow smokestacks, r-   " ,<  AU* displayed the Jack, at the  foremast and 'the' -white ensign at-  half-mast at .their, sterns. The foreign ships attracted most of the  attention of the English spectators.  The giant of the whole fleet was  the Japanese battleship Hatsuz, the  largest war machine-afloat, a fortress of clay-colored steel, with the  scarlet sun on a white field hanging at her stern, the fighting emblem pf the youngest world power.  Emperor William's navy was  ���represented���by��� the���Nymphe,=the  Victoria Louise, the Hagen and the  Baden, all having blue-gray-colored  upper works. The Hagen was flying prince Henry of Prussia's flag,  yellow arms on a white field.  The Dupuy "de Lome, under  France's tricolor; was a fine sight.  She -is built with a prow-fronted  long ram, high out of water.  Portugal was represented by the  cruiser Don Carlos. The ill fortune  of Spain's navy asserted itself at  the last moment, for word came  that the Emperador Carlos V had  turned back from her trip to the  port with crippled engines.  The pathway between the warships was a quarter of a mile wide  avenue of clear water. Behind the  line of warships hovered a few  yachts and channel steamers. Black  torpedo boats and torpedo boat de-  destroyers were steaming about  and oflicers' gigs -and launches  swarmed everywhere. Bugle calls  came over the waters and gaudy  signal flags'burst out and disappeared. The British ships were also lighted with gleams of the scarlet coats of the marines. The black  muzzels of huge guns , swung from  their ports looked very imposing.  Queen's weather came at noon in  a burst of sunshine and the clouds  cleared away from the channel,  lingered above the treetops along  the crest of hills on either side and  the police boats ushered the merchant shipping and crowded excursion boats back to their anchorages  under the shelter of the shore.  Through the whole length of the  channel there was only a long  double file of warships with black  messenger boats dashing among  them.  For nearly three hours'the -fleet  watched for the coming of the  funeral.       The    officers   on    tha  forms, with all their decorations  and medals, scanned the Cowes  shore docks through their glasses.  An occasional brilliant burst of  sunshine showed tens of thousands  of spectators���subjects of the dead  queen���assembled to witness her  last passage from Cowes to Portsmouth." " "~" ~ **   *- "*���*- *�����* - -  Shortly before 3 o'clock white  smoke broke from the Majestic's  side, and a second later a report  cracked over the harbor and echoed  to the hills, announcing the starting of the Alberta from "Trinity  pier. From ship' to ship* the salute  was passed^down 'theJiline. Each  vessel of-, the' fleet' was firing minute'  l^llffisioyed their shore  ,j^^o>jj��sts��that on the channel st^^S^P silhouette'd hulls,  spars and ironwork before the backgrounds of dense gray smoke. The  sound .was that, .of a , great,,Jbattle.  The funeral fleet was just well under way when it came abreast of  the press boat. Eight torpedo boat  destroyers crept away moving in  pairs like silent pall bearers march-  before a hearse. They were the  Portsmouth squadron of exactly  the same size, every inch of hull and  machinery painted black and with  an officer standing like a statue iu  each bow, the crews aligned "at attention" like sentries on their decks.  Hardly a ripple came from their  bows, their speed being barely five  knots.'  ��� .,The-pairs of . torpedo rf,boat   de-  '. strqyersl "ivere^bgut^one^ hundred"  .yards, apart, .with, four boats be':  tween stern and  bow.

Tlie after  deck of the yacht was roofed - with  a white .awning and - beneath   the  awning; through  glasses, could bey  seen the catafalque of, royal t purple  'and ruby lines'on which rested the'  . coffin.'        ____ j    >r v i ���" ��� ������- ���/-; )^ 'J j  ""Four officers in"^*somber uniform's  stood at .the .four* corners of the"*  ^catafalque, with-their -faces turned  toward the ships.   ,A few other persons could be/seen'clustered'on'the  Alberta's deck.;  -.    ���. r' '''  ''  '*���>'>��� '���*���  As   the   funeral   ,'yacht   moved  slowly past, the decks of, the warships   were   crowded., witli    their'  ,crews.    They were ' all" manned to  their full complement. ' The sailors,  in blue, with straw hats,'formed a;  solid mass along the decks of each  ship,  standing with 'their arms at  "attention."- A line bf scarlet coats,  topped^ by, snowy, shining helmets  _6n the after decks, showed "where  the marines .were stationed.   The  fighting tops and guns were also  manned., The oflicers stood out in  showy full-dress array. " The band'  _of���each���ship-took-up-the-funeral-  march   when    the   Alberta    came  abreast of her, and the spectators  on all the other craft took off their  hats.  Following the Alberta trailed  along five other yachts at regular  intervals. First was the Victoria  and Albert, a royal yacht twice as  large as the Alberta and of similar  design. She-carried * the royal  mourners, who, as relatives or  officials, followed the coffin, , King  Edward and emperor William were  chief among them. But, by the  observation boats they were the  only groups not recognizable. A  few scarlet coats could be seen,  with ladies in the deepest mourning, and on the upper deck the  queen's Indian attendants were distinguished by their white helmets  and turbans.  In^ the wake of the Victoria and  Albert emperor William's yacht,  Hohenzollern, loomed up like an  ocean greyhound, as large as a warship, painted white with yellow  funnel, glittering unfunereally, and  carrying the German flag at her  bow and the naval ensign at half-,  mast at her stern. Three other  yachts came in single file behind.  The Osborne, larger than the Alberta and of the same class, came  next, the admiralty yacht Enchantress, and then a little Trinity  House yacht.  Finally came another vessel, a  black torpedo destroyer. - Twenty  minutes after the first pair, of torpedo boat destroyers came abreast  of tlie press boat, the historic parade had passed.' 'The guns on each  warship ceased firing when the Alberto had gone by and the marines  "reversed arms," but they and all  the crews  remained at their sta-  of the late queen's subjects raised  their anchors and followed outside  the line of warships. It was five  o'clock when the echoes of the last  guns ceased. The sun was a great  red globe sinking to the hill-tops,  the clouds began to fall again upon  the channel and the body of the  '"queerf-was safe'hvPortsmouth" harbor.  When the Alberta entered the  harbor with the minute guns in the  forts sounding, the bells of all the  churches of the city tolling, the ancient, frigate Victoryv-moored there^  ^fired'a,salute from muzzle-loaders.-;  ���.The'marines 'manning her*stood'at;.  *arms;   The admiral's*; baffdjplayed;  ,>laf<_irge. ^Thejescbrting .tprpeclo boat*  destroyers drew ahead ana steamed  to   their   berths, and .the Alberta  was moored in the clearance yard.  A   guard   of   a   hundred  marines  marched .on   board.     During   the  .night, the��� quarter-deck where 'the  bier rests is  lighted by electricity.  'Conspicuous among the officers on  duty aboard are vice admiral Seymour, who distinguished himself in  the China  campaign, and captain  Lambton of South African celebrity.   The king's  yacht **was made  fast to a buoy in midstream, with  the Hohenzollern lying near.   The  royal personages and their suites  dined on  board and will pass the  night there.    Steam launches with  armed guards patroled around both  yachts   all   night.    The   crowd in  Portsmouth is estimated at 100,000.  YALE PEN  OEEN&LANJ  The  Local   Ceremonies   to  Her Memory.

The Act of a Scoundrel.  A woman, with a family, whose  name could not be obtained owing to  the lateness of- the hour, who is residing in the cottage owned by Mr.  Knowles, situated near Dobbins'  milk ranch, was badly frightened  at an early hour this morning. All  the windows of the building were  smashed.in ,by an unknown man.  The scoundrel was caught in the  act by parties who were passing at  the time, but before they had time  to intercept him he escaped. The  police were at once notified, but no"  clue has as yet been obtained. It  is said that two orithree times during the past week a man had-' gone  to. the house*andJ demanded admittance, but it was not granted. The  man who committed the act this  morning is thought to be the same'  person. It is probable that he will  be captured today.

From Victoria station to Pad-  dington station the streets of London are now draped in purple,  black * and white. In St. James  street one meets with a perfect  blaze of purple of all shades. Picadilly is gorgeous. Some of the '  clubs aro entirely veiled with pur-'  pie cloth, relieved by-white - bows  and rosettes. Tlie lamp posts in  the middle of the road along the  route have all been removed and  the streets are being sanded preparatory to the function of today.  The cavalcade which will follow  the coffin, with king Edward in the  center, flanked by emperor William ''  and the duke of Connaught, will  exceed in brilliancy anything ever  seen in England.  There will be nearly fifty kings  and princes, each wearing the uniform of his "own country. t Following the brilliant cavalcade will  come the princesses in carriages.  The order of precedence here observed emphasizes the great changes  the death of Victoria has made  among her daughters. Princess  Christian, princess Beatrice and  princess Louise "how yield places to  the daughters of the king. The  first carriage will contain queen  Alexandra, the duchess of Fife, now  princess Royal, princess Victoria,  and princess Charles of Denmark.  The second carriage will contain the  daughters of queen Victoria and the  king of the Belgians. The court  sent special invitation to Mr. Henry  White, secretary of the United  states embassy, to attend the service at St. George's chapel today,  and to be present at the luncheon  that will be given in Windsor  castle.  ���>'l THE TRmmE: JO&SON B.

Phoenix, Arizonaj January J18i���*  "Joe" Mulhatton, perhaps the most  noted writer of newspaper fakes in  America, is in the Territorial Insane  Asylum at this point, a hopeless  maniac. He believes he has killed  a man and that a horde of avengers  are on his trail.

Even in-his^yquthi" he displayed  remarkable aptitude in{the|line of  picturesque* prevarication, y He  evolved from his fertile' imagination a* number -of thrilling-stories  that found their way into the Pittsburg papers and were widely copied.  As he grew-older and gained a little experience- he,, branched^ out  along' more pretentious. lines -, and  framed up. an assortmen^of-glittering newspaper, fakes ��� that-brought  - special writers and sedate scientists  . scurrying across the ocean to investigate alleged marvelous phenomena winch , Mulhatton   claimed   to  ^have discovered in remote parts of^  the country-vbut which> he- really  discovered during his idle moments  in some Hotel corridor. ,, ,  Nominally, he was a traveling  man, but-lying on a large scale- was  his specialty. Perhaps his most  notable work was the story of the  meteor supposed to have fallen in  Texas. Under his vivid imagination  and facile pen this meteor lauded  in Brown county, covered an acre  of ground, destroyed.all the ranches  for miles around by reason of the  sulphurous fumes ' it gave off, and  was still sizzling its way into the  earth when he gave the story to  the newspapers. That glittering  iuvention sent a trainload of newspaper reporters and scientists into  the mesquite bushes of Texas.' They*-  never located the meteor, but the  railroads and boarding houses and  ranchers with horses and guides to  let did a thriving business-for several weeks.-  -  His story of a wonderful cave in  Pike county; Kentucky, was also a  highly decorated * work of art... It  appeared in a Louisville paper, and  set people on ,two continents talking of the rooms fall of magnificent  jewels, of long halls lined with virgin gold and of subterranean rivers  rippling over beds of diamonds.  People flocked to Pikeville by the  hundreds, and town lots sold for  $100 as fast as the papers could be  made out. Even P. T. Barnum, the  wily old showman, was caught in  the trap and hastened to Pike  county to see if he might be able to  pick up a few rare skeletons or  strange cave dwellers that the excited discoverer.had overlooked. In  due course of time the phlegmatic  and ponderous English tourists arrived in:'Pikeville and; .helped to  swell-the receipts of the-hotels and  , bars.  - In 1875i having._v fewmomentsto^  spare, Mulhatton ..wrote a story to;-  the-effect that the tombs-of Wash--,  ington and'LmcolnYwould be taken?  to the centennial exposition in'Philadelphia and put on<exhibition,>the<  fund _hus created-to bedevoted to  completing the Waahingtonlimpnu-  mentjon a grand- sealed Before.the  fake ��� was   exploded "a-number of  sedate .editors were-clawing at each  other, over the' impropriety of the  scheme.    - -       ^ ,   '   . -  Mr.' Mulhatton considers that his  early* efforts in' Pennsylvania were  crude.

Two Curling,(James.
Two curling games were played
at the rink lust evening and they
were probably the most interesting
that have been played this season.
In the contest of Forin vs. Tamblyn
some clever plays were -made.
Taanblyn's rink was four down on
the twelfth end and on throwing
his last "Sfcane" he scored four
points, thus - tieing his opponent.
They played two more ends aud
the result was as follows:
commemorating the death of the queen will bo held in the
Methodist church tomorrow evening. Short
addresses will be given by Messrs. George Qurd
and principal Soady. A choi-ce musical program
has been prepared by tho choir. The regular
quarterly services will be held in the morning.
Rev. -William Munroe will preach
on Sunday morning from tho subject "The Inevitable Result of Action," In the evening a
song service will be held. The first half hour will
be devoted to congregational singing. This will
be followed by a choir recital of solos, anthems,
duets and sacred Ing'ruwental selections. A
cordial invitation is extended to everyone,
