Review of Reviews.
NEW YORK, AUGUST, 1902.
THE PROGRESS OF THE WORLD.
England was the foremost center
The King and through last month of the world's important news. It was not until the middle of July that there was full assurance that King Edward was on the high road to recovery. For a few days after the news, late in June, of the King's illness and submission to a surgical operation, with the indefinite postponement of the coronation and the abandonment of the programme of festivities, there were throughout the world such manifestations of anxiety and friendly concern as were witnessed last year when the life of President McKinley was hanging by a thread. The people of the British dominions showed the most profound feeling, and in the United States there was unbroken unanimity in the expressions of sympathy and good will. It seems that Edward had suffered from exposure at Aldershot during the military reviews, and had come down with a chill and other serious symptoms on June 14. The coronation, as our readers will remember, was to have taken place on June 26. For a number of days the King's physicians made him husband. his strength in order that he might be ready for the essential parts of the coronation programme; but on the 24th a medical consultation disclosed
the fact that the King was suffering from a gravely critical case of perityphlitis, this being a particu lar form, by no means an uncommon one,-of what is generally called peritonitis. It was decided that the only hope for the King's life lay in an immediate surgical operation to remove an abscess that had formed near the appendix, and this decision was immediately given effect, the operator being that eminent surgeon, Sir Frederick Treves. But for modern advances in medical knowledge and in the surgical art, the King must undoubtedly have died on or about the date that had been set for the coronation.
The King's chief anxiety about it all was due to his desire that the people should not be disappointed, in view of their great preparations for the coronation. At first he insisted upon being carried to the Abbey, in order that the event might occur according to the programme. He was made, however, to understand the impossibility of any postponement of the necessary operation, which took place in Buckingham Palace, where subsequently the royal sufferer lay in a room facing the beautiful gardens. All this had come about so suddenly that the chief dignitaries of England were re
