New Yokk, Aug. 24. A special to the
Sun from Washington says:
Tho naval demonstration upon the
occasion of Li Hung Chang's arrival at
New York next Friday w ill be on a
larger scale than had been expected,
and in point of spectacular effect It Is
expected to exceed anything of tho
kind since tho absemblagc of foreign
war vessels in tho North river preced
ing tho opening of the Chicago ex
position. Orders have been prepared
by tho naval authorities and will reach
Adm, Bunco on his arrival off
Tompkinsville on Wednesday after
noon for his guidance during the pass
age up tho harbor of the St. Louis, and
the subsequent inspection of the vessels
which the viceroy will make before
leaving for tho west. It is now pro
posed to afford Li every chance of see
ing the best specimens of the American
navy under the most favorable circum
stances, and each commander will be
ordered to take especial care in clean
ing up his vessel and in having their
sides shine and the bright work to glit
ter during the whole time 'of his Btay
in the cast.
Adm. Bunce's fleet ib to be augment
ed by tho battleships Maine and Texas
and will include tho Massachusetts,
Perhaps the armored cruiser Brooklyn,
after her trial off tho New England
coast, will join the fleet for a day or
two to permit LI to seo the finest ship
of her class yet built for any naval
The fleet all told will comprise ten
vessels, exclusive of the ram Katahdin
and the torpedo boats Cushing and
Dolphin, the latter to act as dispatch
boat for the distinguished visitors
while nt New York. The whole squad
ron will anchor off Thompkinsvlle
somo time Wednesday, and will at
once begin preparations for according
Li all "the honors laid down in the na
val regulations for occasions of great
On Friday morning tho fleet will
probably move down to the lower bay
and then take up position and wall tho
arrival of the St. Louis, and as she
passes each ship will run to the
fore truck tho imperial colors of
China and fire a salute. Tho
exact number of guns, however,
have not been determined, as there
is somo question what salute Li's rank
entitles him. While in Europe he was
generally recognized as having tho
rank lord high admiral, which calls for
10 guns, or the same number laid down
for a secretary of the navy, but as this
government does not recognize that
title, it is probable 15 guns will be
given him as imperial prime minister
of China. Tho salute will be the first
over fired to the Chinese colors from
the deck of an American war ship in
New York harbor, and this ensign will
be displayed for tho only time in many
years from a ship attached to the
North Atlantic station. China's war
vessels seldom visit countries away
from home, so that tho opportunity of
firing off gunpowder in honor of their
arrival here is a raro occurrence, and
has seldom if ever been observed here.
The programme for tho naval honors
next Friday will bo loft almost entire
ly to Adm. Bunce, but he will be in
structed that tho ships are to be ex
pected to recognize Li's arrival In some
way, and tho most probable manner
will be in forming cither one long line
or an open order line through which
tho St. Louis may pabs, while each ves
sel fires off a saluto and the sicles are
manned by bailors und the marines
drawn up on the quarter deck at pre

Appointed For the Louisville, New Albany
& Chicago Itnllroad.
Isdianai'oms, Ind., Aug. 21. Suit
was filed In the United States circuit
court here Monday asking that a re
ceiver be appointed for tho Louisville,
Now Albany & Chicago railroad, better
known as the Monon system. Rumors
had been flying thick and fast in rail
road circles during tho past week, to
the effect that the Monon was being
pressed and was liable to go into re
ceivership, but tho reports were de
nied bv the Monon officials as rapidly
as they bobbed up.
Monday njnrning Judge Woods camo
down from Chicago and his appearance
was a bignal for a fresh outbreak of
the rumors. These were confirmed
when, shortly after noon, a receiver
bhtp suit was. filed by John T. Mills, jr.,
of New York, by his rittorney, Harry
Crawford, of Chicago.
After stating tint the company oper
ated 5117 miles of road, from Chicago to
Louisville, the complaint says that the
company has u lease for 99 years of the
Chicago & Western Indiana railroad, on
which, it alleges, the Monon owes Sl,-
000,000. The other Indebtedness of the
road is alleged to be 83,000,000 in 0 per
cent, bonds secured by first mortgage
or tho main line, S2.300.000 in 0 per
cent, bonds secured by first mortgage
on the western branch; 4,700,000
in (1 per cent, consolidated bonds
secured by a mortgage upon the entire
railroad system, 82,000,000 of G per cent,
bonds, secured by a lion upon the en
tire system and 81,000,000 of 5 per cent,
equipment bonds, secured by
first mortgage upon equipments, etc
It is then alleged that in 18S9 and '00,
the board of directors without authori
ty from tho stockholders and contrary
to law, placed upon each of the 81,183,-
1 000 0 per cent, first mortgage bonds, in
dorsements signed by the defendant to
guarantee to the bondholders tho
payment of the principal and interest
of such bonds. It is also alleged that
the earnings for tho year hac fallen
short 800,000 per month as compared
with former years, that dangerous liti
gation is threatened in throe states
because of tho Monon's inability to
meet its obligations, and that unless
the court takes prompt custody of the
road, suits will be brought, attach
ments issued, the rights of bondhold
ers imperiled and tho earning ability
of the road greatly diminished.
Judge Woods, without a hearing,
signed an order appointing Wra. Mc
Doel, of Chicago, receiver. Mr. Mills,
the plaintiff, already has a heavy judg
ment against the road. Mr. McDoel's
bond was placed at 8100,000.
An answer was filed by E. C. Field,
for the company. None of tho allega
tions are denied, tho railroad "throw
ing itself ortho mercy of tho court."
A DRIFTING MATCH

Toledo, 0., Aug. 24. Tho day for
the opening of the international yacht
racei between Vencedor, of tho Lin

club, Toronto, broke with a clear sky,
worm air and alight breeze conditions
pleasant for the sight-seeing thousands
but not favorable to a bmart race.

shifting frequently to all points of tho
compass. At this rato the race will be
slow and the bureau's forecast is for a
continuance of light w ind Tuesday.
Tho yachts started on time nt 12:40,
Vencedor slightly in the lead. Wind
hardly btrong enough to fill hails but
At 2 p. m. both boatb were on first
leg of course. It has taken them one
hour and 45 minutes to coer half of it,
so light is tho wind. Haco has devel
oped into a drifting match and
unless a gale comes up tho race
will not bo finished within time limit,
5X hours. Canada is nearly u
mile in tho lead. After the start she
maneuvered for a time in an effort to
again blanket tho Vencedor, and final
ly started off on a hunt for a breeze
while tho Vencedor kept to tho north
east. At 12:40 both contestants got out
their spinnaker booms, but sot no bail.
If weather conditions remain as at
present the raco will undoubtly be de
clared off. Canada Is catching all tho
wind there is.
At 8:40 p. m. tho Vencedor was far
behind and becalmed. The Canada is
creeping toward the second stake and
is getting tho benefit of a llttlo breeze
a mile ahend of the Vencedor, which
has not even got cteeragew ay. Tho
wind may freshen in half an hour or
so, but it will bo too lato to make a
race. At 4 p. m. tho race was declared
