Control of tho ponderous plcco of ma

with only a severe shaking up. The
runaway engine remained on tho rails

In the forenoon a crowd began to gath
er In tho vicinity of the Waldorf

Chinaman. Acting Inspector Harley,

around tho house, kept the people from
crowding around the hotel.
The hour set for Earl Li's visit to
Grant's tomb was 3 o'clock. Before
that time tho police stopped traffic and
nobody was admitted into Thirty-third
street. A dense mass of people lined
the sidewalks along Fifth avenue as
far a tho eye could see. There were
bluecoats stationed all along the
route which- was covered by the dis
tinguished visitor. This was: Fifth
avenue to Forty-ninth street, to the
Boulevard, to the riverside drive and
the tomb. Acting Police Inspector

who was staying at the Fifth Avenue
hotel, was driven to Col. Grant's house,
25 East Sixty-second street, whero LI
Hung Chang was to visit her aftpr tho
ceremony at tho tomb was over.
An immense wreath which tho am
bassador was to place on the tomb of
the dead general, was first carried
downstairs from the viceroy's apart
ments. This wreath, carefully guard
ed by a member of Li's suite, was
placed in a cab and taken to the tomb.
Li Hung Chang and party drove up
Riverside drive opposite the to mb at
4:15 o'clock. His appearance was a sig
nal for hearty cheering. There was a
6hort delay whilo one of the Chinese at
tendants hastened back to a rear car
riage to bring Li Hung Chang's se
dan chair. When it arrived he was
carried by four police from the rr.ad
to tho tomb. Ho carried an umbrella
In one hand and a gold-mounted cane
in tho other. On reaching tho top of
the flight of steps LI alighted. The
heavy iron door leading to the tomb
was then opened. Li, after taking in
one hand his floral wreath, entered the
zrypt and placed it on the iron casket.
Before doing so ho made a. profound
After remaining standing for 20 min
utes alongside of tho casket LI uttered
several words in Chinese and made a
profound bow. Stepping backward to
tho door he repeated the same words
to himself and made a second bow.
Then he withdrew. As ho seated him
self in the sedan chair tho crowd ut
tered a rousing cheer. This seemed to
please him greatly, for he gently
nodded his head.
The entire party then entered car
riages and wero driven to the residence
of Col. Grant, in East Sixty-second
street. There a crowd of 3,000 people
awaited him. LI declined tho use of
the sedan chair, and, leaning on the
arms of Gen. Iluger and Col. Grant, he
ascended tho flight of carpeted steps
and entered the drawing room, whero
