While thousands came yes terday to his tomb in Riverside Park, thousands have heen and are gathering there to-day. That Mecca of these many pilgrims was during the early hours this morning transformed into a veritable gar den of beautiful shrubs and rare flowers. The tomb is fairly hidden by gifts of gen erous hearts and loving hands. The key stone of the arched facade of the tomb is hidden by a large Grand Army badge made with red, white, blue and purple immor telles. To the right of the center are the words, " In War, a Foe" in purple flowers. Those to the left read, "In Peace, a Friend."' The iron cross surmounting the tou:b has been transformed into one com posed of white immortelles, with red and blue border. To either side of the tomb are banked (loral offerings from all parts of the country. The most striking is a handsome terres trial globe 25 inches in diameter, and about four feet high. The globe is made with fifteen thousand immortelles. Water is represented by white flowers, while the Po litical divisions of the various continents, as well as the islands of the seas, are desig nated by diirerent colors. On the broad Pacilic are the words in purple llowers, " The Emerald Isle decorates his grave." The standard is composed of evergreens. This is the offering of Flavins Cheney and family. The design and idea of the gift were first suggested by the children of his household, who have been and are great admirers of Grant. Another elegant tribute is a token of friendship between the oldest and youngest of the great nations of the earth." It is a double screen, four by six feet, of rare roses and immortelles, und is the joint gift of Viceroy Li Hung Chang, Premier of China, who made Grant's acquaintance while visiting China, and formed an admir ing friendship for him, and Chang Yen Horn, Chinese Minister at Washington. One of the screens is a crossed sword and pen. and on the other the national Hag of China. George G. Meade Tost, No. 1, Philadel phia, sent a five-foot target of red, white and blue rings around the edge of a gnat yellow star on the green ground in the center. This morning a score of park employes erected a grand stand to the south of the tomb, while many more inclosed a space of ground covering many acres and placed hundreds of benches in it. Captain Beatty, Sergeant Flock and Roundsman Cunning ham, with 150 Park policemen and 250 reg ular police, kept the great crowd in order. The decorations and arrangements were in charge of Grant Post, Brooklyn. Comrades Andrew Jacobs and James Dean acting as the committee. Business is very generally suspended, and the streets were thronged at an early hour with dense crowds of people wailing with patient expectancy the coming of the usual Memorial day procession. Thousands of people are visiting the tomb of General Grant, to do honor to the illustrious dead. The procession composed of militia and veteran organizations, interspersed through out with carriages containing maimed and invalid veterans, was reviewed by Gov ernor Hill, accompanied by Generals Sher man, Sickles, and many other distin guished people. It is estimated that about fifteen thousand people were in line. AT THE TOMB OF OEAXT. New York, May 30th.— Early in the day Mrs. Grant stood at the tomb of the hero of Appomattox, and entering placed her per sonal token of flowers upon the casket within. Though the narrow space was tilled with foliage, hers was the only offer ing of blooming flowers, all else" heavy leaved and dark green. Mrs. Grant went away to her home so as not to be pre=(tit when the public should come to the services. There were offerings from a Viceroy of China, through the Minister here; from the Loyal Legion and many others. Twenty thou sand were there when the services began at four o'clock. Grant Post, of Brooklyn, was in charge, assisted by Morgan and Hamilton Posts. Fifty colored ladies, in uniform, marched to the tomb with flowers. There were appropriate services according to the Grand Army ritual. John Rbey Thompson ,md D. I). Now, of the Washington -Square Methodist Church. delivered orations.

Honor* l'aiil to the Memory of the Na tion's Defender?. San Fra.v «o, May :}Oth.— A morebeau tifal day could be hardly imagined.

Grand Marshal Geist- I ing and a brilliant staff followed, and then came the military, the members of the Grand Army Paste, Mexican Veterans, etc The Mexican War Veterans, as they passed out Market street thirty-two strong, made a tine showing, and in looking at the vet- j erans it was hard to believe that forty I years had passed since these same men ' stormed the bights of Chapultepec. The rtar of the proce«.<io;i was composed ! of nine wagons bearing the floral emblems ! and the bouquets for the decoration of the i graves of the dead. The route of iLe pro- I cession was along Market street and out I Golden (Jate avenue. The sidewalks along ' the line of march were crowded. The list of the donors of flowers to dec orate the graves of the soldier dead was unusually large this year, and a large dele gation of the Woman's Relief Corps was busy yesterday and this morning at Metro politan Hall making bouquets flower pieces, etc. The decorations at Odd Fellows' Ceme tery, where the memorial exercises were held, were very elaborate, unique and beautiful. The most beautiful and artistic floral pieces were reserved for the Grand Army plot, on the face of the hill looking east over the calm blue ocean. These were principally the work of the Woman's Ke hef Corps and the ladies of the Grand Army. One of the finest creations was a mam moth wreath, made by the ladies of the Grand Army, and destined for the grave of Colonel E. D. Baker, in Laurel Hill ceme- j tery. The memorial services were held at ihe southwest corner of the cemetery, a space having been leveled and set apart for the purpose, at ons side of which was the!

Chicago, May :;Oth.— Jacob Gaudaur to day defeated Ned Hanlon, the great ex champion oarsmen, in the race for the championship of America and $5,000. The race was a three-mile pull on Calumet Lake. When the men first came out on the course the water was a little rough, but this had no deterring influence, and the start was made with promptness. Han lan was at once a trifle in the lead, pulling short, quick strokes, forty-two per minute. Gaudaur kept close to "him, with a long, steady sweep of about thirty-eight per min ute. Gradually Hanlan forged ahead, and at the end of the initial mile was fully a length in advance. Before the turn was reached the wind suddenly freshened and rain began to pour. The lake was soon lumpy from end to end, and the down-pour was almost blinding. Hanlan turned first, two lengths ahead. Time, 10:02. He was pulling about thirty-five strokes per minute, and rounding to Gaudaur struck about the same gait. Hanlan kept well to the frontuntil en tering the third mile, when he commenced to flag. His stroke became uneven and rowing seemed to require exertion. G;iu daur was rowing magnificently at the same long, steady sweep, but faster. He soon passed Hanlan. First one, then another, and at last three lengths between them could be seen, lianlan then made a tre mendous spurt for a very short time, but could not stand the pace. He lay back an instant, and glancing over his shoulder saw himself beaten. Gaudaur was six lengths away from him. Gaudaur then slackened his speed and passed the stand an easy winner by four lengths. Time, 20:2i>. It was a fine performance, under the ad verse circumstances. After the race Han lan said he did not think the best man won, although he acknowledged him self fairly beaten. He claimed to have been suffering from a severe cold, which told on him at the critical time. Gaudaur said it was the hardest race he ever rowed. Hanlan gets 40 per cent, of the $3,500, which were the total gate rec eipts. The figures, 30:29, were taken from the President of the Farragut Club, who was un derstood to be the official time-keeper. The timers of the leferee boat, however, agree that the three miles was made in I&3Q, and this has been declared official. Gaudaur, therefore, broke the record, the best pre vious time being his own against Teenier over the same course — 10:54— though it is announced Hanlan also broke the previous record, he having finished in lil:,'U. His backer says he will send Hanlan to Aus tralia, ami if he defeats Beachwill, once more pit him against Gaudaur. ROBS DKKKATS HOSMKR. New York, May 30th.— Wallace Ross and George Hosmer rowed a single-scull race r.ear Flushing this evening. The an nouncements were for a three-mile race for $1,500. The start was made in choppy water. There were three turns, and the announcement was made by the judges that the first half was made in 75 minutes. On the first turn Ross fouled both Hosmer and the stake-boat, but secured the lead and held it to the end, winning by two feet in what was announced as l-t:o.">. The judges were not in a position to see the finish, and a man in a boat told them about it. The time is correct. The explanation of this phenomenal time must be found in the measurement or non-measurcmeut of the course. KASTKOJf RACE. Two Califonila-brecl Horses Wia at Je rome Park.

It has been an open ques tion as to which was the better man, and they are so nearly matched in si/.,; and weight that the contest between them de pends entirely on their pugilistic abilities Warren is a quarter-inch taller than Dan forth, while the latter is a little broader across the shoulders than Warren. The men were weighed this morning. Warren weighed 118J pounds, and Danforth HVJ.
