HjjK I.. Orme, that he had tnado many tintuccessf ul
Bf attempts to rent a new building. They took
Kf dinner together Saturday evening at Marti-
(BC ' nelU's and Keldol was gloomier than ever. He
HJ&' aaldhehad failed to secure a building. His
HJud mind seemed to bo entirely ongrosscd with what
HISp would happen if the factory were moved, and
BP. he reforrcd to the lone and prosperous career of
t tlio firm in the old building. Ho went to his
rooms In tho basement of the factory lnime-
Si! diately after dinner, and he was not seen alive

jFI1 circles and was a pianist of marked ability. Ho
l1Kn 1Ta" elected amomberof tho I.oUn Club in 1H7 1,

rV that he wsb frugal in his habits, and had no
I' -32 pecuniary troubles. Thoro was no way of know-

1i.Sf Ernest Knabo came on from llaltlmoro last
'fiJI' night in rcsponvo to a telegram from Mr. Orue.

it was an eventful day In tho history of Cal
vary Church, Fourth avenue and Twenty-first
street. Tho pastor. I to v. Dr. Hatterlee.who was
offered tho lllshoprlo of Michigan a week or two
ago, had requested time In which to consider
the matter, and had statod that he would an
nounce his decision at yesterday's morning ser
vlco. Accordingly Dr. Batterlee's parishioners
were almost all drawn to tho church, anx
Ions to learn his decision at the earliest possible
moment. Many strangers came In expectation
of hearing a farowcll sermon.
Before, ascending the pulpit Dr. Battcrlce read
tho following announcement, which was the
only reference to tho matter made at tho public
"After prayerfully and earnestly consldinng
the offer of the Bishopric of Michigan I want to
announce to you that 1 havo declined It, and I
trust I am led by a higher power. At tho con
clusion of tho service I would reqnost that tho
parishioners of Calvary remain in tho church,
when I will say something personal to them on
Thoro was neither reference nor allusion to
tho matter in tho sermon which followed. When
tho ser Ico was o er tho mi inborn of tho church

pastor, after removing his ctuirnt. had taken
Ills stand. He spoke to Hum for nearly an hour,

waa convinced that hu had no call to go tn Mich

conclusion and In considering tho calls of duty.
Tho decision to remain In Now York was not his,
ho said, hut Ood's. Ho fait that his duty re
quired him to stay and carry out his plans and
Ideals foi tho future.
"Homebody has asked," said Dr, Batterleo,
"what Is Canary Chinch, corner of Fouith

tho Dioceso of Michigan, and thow words hao

ARRIVAL IN TELL STREET OP THE FAMOUS
BARON LI IE.V 1'ANO.
All Chinatown Kxelted by the Presence of si
Native Merchant I'rlnee Worth 40,
000,000 A Ureal Man In Mara thnn
Ona Respect lla Ilaa Heme Hhntp Opin
ions on American Antl-Chlnee Laws,
Several carriages and a string of trucks full of
queer-looking boxes and bundles drove at dusk
last night slowly up to the door of No. 35 Pell
strcot, whero Wing Wo Cheong keeps' tho largest
Chinese grocery store in New York. A well
dressed young Chinaman jumped out of one of
thu carriages, ciitoied filestore and announced
to the manager that Baron Ll Yen Pang was at
tho door, Tho name, which is a familiar ono
among all classes In China, and eipcclallr in
financial circles, startled tlio storcfnlof Chinese
loungers. Mark Wing, the malinger, hardly
believing tho evidence of his cars, hastily rushed
out listless and almost shoeless to receive the
great merchant king of tho Chinese Empire.
Mark Wing is tho American manager of Baron
Li Yen Pang's various enterprises, amounting in
valuo to millions of dollars.
By tho time tho manager got to tho door the
old Baron had been assisted from his carrlago
by his private secretary and a omigintorpioter.
Those wcro tho only bodyguards of Li Yen Pang
that camo from Hong-Kong with him, although
at homo ho was generally surrounded by at least
fifty nttomlenta when out calling. But the old
man said that owing to tha present ridiculous
laws ot the United States ho had to leavo all his
other followers ot home. Ho began tho trip
around the world about seven months ago. He
went first to Mandalay. Burnish, whero ho spent
a few days with his agent, and thence to Bom
hay and thence to Australia. It was thcio thnt
he learned through tho Fngllsh custom-houses
that in order to got into British Columbia it
was necessary that ho must havo passports. To
obtain these ho wjib forced to return to Chltin,
and went straight to hU cousin, the Vice
roy Li Hung Chung, at Tiontsien. Fiom htm
ho got the necessary papers to enter not only
Canada but tho United Htates. In order to get
bis attendants through It waa necessary to
knight an interpreter and also his confidential
secretaiy, who was already a small Mandarin.
Although fifty-three years old, , Baron Li Yen
Pang is as straight as an arrow and one of tho
fowblg men of his nationality In this country.
He Is nearly el feet tall and broad and big all
around, ills face is so fat that only small
spaces arc left for his eyes. He is sllablo and
Iiolite. Although ho has been only a day In tho
Jnlted Htates he can speak many English w ords.
The Barou has three branch houses in Hong-
iCong, oneinHhanghal, one In Mandalay, two
ii Honolulu, several in Victoria, two in Han
'rancisco and two in New York. It Is said that
he has invested among Chinese-American mer
chants about $2,000,000, and he Is worth
nearly S40,000,oi)O, which is a big figure in
China. Ho is one of tho richest men in China,
although Pang Kim Luu is said to havo HHOti,
Otio.ooo, but thu statement has never bwn ver
ified. Bai ou Li Y'eu Pang is lodging at No. UC Pell
street, preferring Chinee food and accommo
dations, no matter huw humble, to thu bust of
American hotels, where he would only bo an ob
ject of vulgar cUrloslt)'. Hu will remain In New
York for a few days, and the Chinese merchants
will snow him about the city. In an Interview
with a Would reporter the Barou spoke bitteily
about tho new anti-Chun sc law. Hu said that
for himself ho cared but little where lie Invented
Ins capital, but the law was particulaily severe
upon the small trsdeis oi nieichauts who came
In lo ou borrowed capital. 'Iheiu weiu maii
who only a jenr oi two ago bonowed tens of
tli usntuls fiom him to begin husiiiem
In thu Htates, mid no sooner had tluv
begun than the law took nvvny their support
by piohlbltlug thousands of old resident China
men from coming back tn tin ir v hi huh places of
business. Foi this reason m.iu of tlio-e mer
chants will have toclnsuup their newly opened
shops with thu loss of thousands of dollais. Ho
will ho compelled now to close his account
