AMERICA'S GUESTS FROM THE ORIENT Li Hung Chang Reaches New York I REPORTER TAKES OBSERVATIONS During the Trip Across the Atlantic AN AMOOSINQ LITTLE CUSS If thebaic Lamented Billings May Be Quoted LI Joked With Children and Poked His Doctor's Kins Arriving at New York tbe Chinese Ambass ador Is Received Wltb All Due Honor. Tbe Pretldent Attends the Reception Associated Tress Special Wire ON BOARD THE AMERICAN LINE B. S. ST. LOUIS, Aug. 88.—(Copyright, 1896.)— A special correspondent of the Associated Press made the trip across the Atlantic with Li Hung Chang and his suite. The following is a detailed story of the voyage: On Saturday, August 22d, a few min utes after 12 oclock, noon, the steamer St. Louis left the Southampton docks with a full complement of passengers on board, among whom were many very prominent people from all quarters of the globe, but no one of whom excited more interest than his excellency, Li Hung Chang, attended by his suite and servants. The decks were croweded, all the vessels displayed their bunting and as the St. Louis steamed from the har bor the yellow ensign of the Chinese na tion at the fore and the Stars and Stripes at the stern, a salute was tired from an English naval reserve training ship and was acknowledged by the dipping of the ensign on the St. Louis. All through the harbor a large num ber of yachts were met, all of them dip ping their colors In honor of the depart ing ambassador who had been the recip ient of considerable attention during his stay in England. A Bhort distance out, the United States armored cruiser, Min neapolis, was anchored and as the St. Louis drew near It was found that her sides were lined by sailors, officers were drawn up on the quarter deck, the Chi nese emblem flying at the foremast and the guns sent out a good, solid American salute In honor of the prime minister of China. As the St. Louis passed, the band of the Minneapolis played The Washington Post march. This caused loud and pro-. longed cheers to swell up from the pas sengers of the St. Louis, who werf» Justly proud of this fine representative of the American navy. During this time Li Hung Chang had been sitting or stadlng on the deck, an Interested spectator of all that was going on and especially Intent on the antics of those nearest him. Aeit was a, fine day, full of sunshine, he remained on deck an hour at least and then re tired* to his stateroom until r> oclock in the afternoon, when he came on deck again for an hour. He did not wander about much on the deck unless the weather was good and the sea quiet and smooth, as he is not very sure-footed. He remarked: "I would fall a great way if I once lost my hold." In the evening he kept to his room, engaged in communication with his son and his two doctors, Dr. Irwin nnd Dr. George Mark, who Insists on having an English name instead of his own Chinese name. Every night at about 8:30 orlock the Chinese servants made up tile berths in the staterooms occupied by the ambas sador and four of his guard, and by 9:30 oclock they were tucked away for a good night's sleep, his bodyguard of four men being in attendance in an adjoining room. The guard was relieved every three hours, there being a regular detail laid out for the entire trip, and there was not a moment when the viceroy was not watched. While smoking one of the men will fix the Chinese statesman's cigar in the holder for him and when used up he takes it out and replaces, it with a fresh one, or if a pipo is U3cd, the at tendant holds it for him and when he wishes to puff it is respectfully handed to him. The ambassador certainly does not have the slightest trouble. Those about him are always on the alert to anticipate any possible desire on the part of his excellency. The two doctors, the viceroy and Lo Fin Sun, the first secretary of the em bassy, were the inseparables and it was amusing to see them together en- Joying apparently the best jokes. Their wits have been very well sharpened and their appreciation of our American stories and jokes seemed wonderful. The two speak English very well. During the first day of the trip there was continual excitement among the passengers as to who was LiHungChang and who the rest were, and when the viceroy appeared he was the recipient of quite a passing review. On Sunday, August 23d, Li Hung Chang arose, at 5:30 a.m., shortly after which he was served with his breakfast and at 7 oclock was out on deck, seated some one else's chair (a usual error committed by the members of the em bassy) with a large hood over his head and wrapped in a maroon rug, smoking his cigarettes as usual and attended by nls two physicians and two attendants. Tho morning was very misty and Li Hung Chang soon retired to his state room, where he remained all day. ThlH day ("Sunday) happened to bo the fif teenth of (he seventh moon, the day when all the people of China'Wisit the graveyards and worship the memories of their ancestors and it was therefore spent indoors and, as one of the em bassy remarked. "The viceroy is paying his respects to his forefathers in Imagi nation." It was noticed at all the meals served to LI Hung Chang that his son, the viscount, was the only one who ate with him, but all his attendants were about him In full numbers until the meal was finished. In the morning all were very much In terested in the viceroy, asking questions about a new clock that had been pre sented and the necessity of putting the time back an hour each day. It was very amusing to hear him say something to the English doctor ar.d playfully dig him In the ribs when he reached the point of his remarks. He received no one in the evening except his physi cians and his son, and was put away In bed at an early hour. Day's run from 12 noon from The Needles, 23 hours, 22 minutes, 479 miles, longitude 13.38 west, latitude 50.46 north, from south. On August 24, Monday, to 12 noon, the day's run was 24 hours, 53 minutes, 508 miles. latitude 50.15, longitude 26.54. Smooth, bright sunshine all day. The ambassador arose early in the morning, after his breakfast took quite a long promenade and was attended by ills usual guards. He was very muh Interested in children, it being no uncom mon sight to see him with several about him and his interpreters speaking In English, French and German to the lit tle ones, much to the amusement of the distinguished traveler. This day (Mon day) the ambassadors gave up to re ceiving the people who had cards or were persons of standing. Gen. George C. Williams spent a quiet time lit the viceroy's stateroom. He was followed by Gen. Louis Wagner of Phil adelphia, and as the conversation took place in the saloon, all were very much Interested. The talk was principally on tl\e leading political situation in the United States. Many questions fol lowed on gold and sliver, the candidates for the presidency and vice presidency, and about many prominent men of the day—dwelling particularly on McKlnley, Bryan. Hobart. Foster, Wanamaker, Whitney and President Cleveland. Li Hung Chang asked Gen. Wagner If he knew Mr. Wharton Barker of Phil adelphia, and the following reply came: "Yes, very well; we are great friends." He said ho was very much surprised when Mr. Barker last visited China this spring. He only stopped a few days, and when asked by LI Hung Chang why he hurled away, Mr. Barker re plied that he had to get hack because he was going to be elected president of the United States and must get back Immediately and attend to it. The St. Louis arrived off quarantine at 12:30 and was Immediately boarded by Cleneral Ruger and the welcoming offi cers from cruiser Dolphin, who extended the Chinese statesman, Li Hung Chang, in behalf of President Cleveland, a welcome to the T'nited States. The St. Louis slowly moved up the bay, surrounded by all kinds of gaily decorated craft, with the Dolphin quite near her, to the music of a tremendous chorus of steam whistles and a contin ual fusillade of giant firecrackers, etc. As the St. Louis nearer] tho American fleet, a salute in honor of the Chinese visitors was fired from the flagship New York, gun by gun until ten other war ships dipped their colors asthe St. Louis passed. They presented a magnificent appearance and were watched with the greatest interest by the Chinese am bassador and his suite from the port side of the upper deck. The Chinese party was received at the pier by a guard of honor of marine, In fantry and an Immense crowd, which was with difficulty kept back from the approachers by police. The Chinese standard was hauled down from the American 'line steamer as the Chinese ambassador landed on the wharf and entered a carriage with General Ruger. In tbe next carriage were Tao Tai LI, Major Vonhannek and members of the staff of General Ruger. In the third carriage were Lord Li and wife, Loh Feng Lull and another staff officer. After them came carriages containing the Chinese minister, Chinese consul and their suitehs, accompanied by staff officers. The carriages were preceded by a de tachment of the Sixth cavalry, another detachment bringing up the fear. A detachment of mounted police headed the procession, which moved away amid loud cheering. The route of the procession was guard ed by police and densely packed with spectators. Bunting was displayed on all sides, the Chinese standard being seen everywhere. General Ruger was the first American introduced to Li Hung Chang on the St. Louis. They shook hands. Then the gt neral said: "Ambassador. I am here on behalf of the United States gov ernment and President Cleveland to bid you welcome to this country." A translator told the ambasador what was said. He stated that he understood and in Chinese said: "I am glad to be here and I thank you for this kindness. I am glad to know you." The distinguished Chinaman was quiet In demeanor, speaking in a low voice. That he was not without humor v.gs evident by the expression upon his face when he saw the horde of reporters. He said: "We have no reporters in China, but I see they have some here." When the dock was reached the gang plank had hardly been put in position when Col Fred Grant stepped up. The ambassador's face beamed with smiles as he grasped the colonel's hand and shook it warmly. He conversed with him a few minutes and then entered ills carriage for conveyance! to the Waldorf in BUZZARD'S BAY, Aug. 28.—Presi de, i .... ...iuui, hvucuutPOtuied by Private Secretary Thurber ami Attorney General Harmon, left bere for New York at 12:15 oclock this afternoon to attend the re ception to U Hung Chang.

AUGUST 29, 1896.-TEN PAGES M'KINLEY MAKES RESPONSE To the Greetings of the League Committeemen ASSISTANCE IS WELCOMED In Direct Ratio as It Seems to Be Needed The Value el Young Men Who Will Vote tbe Republican Ticket Cannot Be Overestimated Associated Press Special Wire CANTON, 0.. Aug. 28. —A committee of fifteen from the National Republican league reached here at 1:30 this after noon from Milwaukee. The committee Included Colonel George Stone of Cali fornia. John Goodnoe spoke for Presi dent Woodmansee of the league, who could not be here, and Major McKlnley responded: Mr. Goodnoe and Gentlemen: It gives me great pleasure to greet at my home this lurge committee, representing the Republican clubs of the United States. I know something of your worth and work. I know how Informer campaigns the splendid services of the young Re publicans of the country have contrib uted to bring to us the most signal tri umphs. 1 am glad to hear from your spokes man, fresh from your national conven tion, that the Republican party and the Republican cause this year are to have your united, aggressive and unfaltering support: and I am sure with that sup port, connected with the support that will come from all (Masses of our fel low citizens everywhere, will give to the national ticket and to our party a triumph the like of which we have not had for many years. We cannot over estimate the value of the young men in politics, and I would not have believed It if Mr. Goodnoe bad not told me that they are not practical politicians. (Laughter.) My experience with them has been that they have been politi cians of the most practical sort known in American politics. Gentlemen, you never had a worthier cause to strive for than you have this year. The financial honor of tho coun try and the prosperity of all its people are enough to inspire every American heart to the best possible effort. (Ap plause.) I have seen somewhere an Inquiry, "Cannot the t'nited States establish a llnancial system of its own? Is it too weak and dependent to do that?" 1 answer, the t'nited States has now a llnancial policy which, In the main, it has been pursuit,;', ;dnee the beginning of the government, and which It does not mean to change until it can tind a better one. Those who make this Inqui ry are usually against the American sys tem of finance, and they are Insisting that we shall adopt the financial poli cy of China and Mexico. I hope it will not be thought an evidence of lack of national spirit of national independence that We decline to adopt their proposi tions. (Applause.) A delegation of 300 people from the Ohio United Brethren conference fol lowed closely upon the call of the league committee. To them Governor McKinley said: It gives me sincere pleasure/ to re spond to this call of greeting ar_J con gratulation. 1 am duly appreciative of the message of good will which you so kindly bring from the great religious body which you represent. It is a good omen when religious teachers are alive to the questions which tend to make the country great, prosperous antl right eous. Civic virtue Is a good text for the preacher always, but a better thing for every citizen to guard in ills dally life. Good citizenship lies at the foundation of our true greatness as a free govern ment. Those who proclaim it are Indeed Christian teat hers and public benefac tors. The better the citizen the better a free government and its laws. It Is a gratifying fact, as you slate, that in your form of government, char acter counts for so much. The lack of it almost amounts to a disqualification for public trusts. Whatever men's in dividual opinions on moral que-stions may be, whether good or bad, whatever may be their party affiliations, all pre fer that public officials shall be of high character and worth. They may be care less in their own lives, but they Insist that those who are to execute the pub lic will shall be men of unquestioned integrity. They may be heedless of virtue and careless in their own lives, but they insist that those who are to execute the public will shall be men of unquestioned integrity, public, opinion demands this, und all political parties respect it. I wish f"r every religious body and every other agency whose object Is to elevate mankind, tlie fullest measure of success. No nobler cause could engage your faculties. I trust that your annual con ference will be productive of good, and that your stay here will bring pleasure to you as I am sure it has brought pleas ure to our people and to our city. I will be glad to meet and greet each one of you who have honored me today, and i thank you over and over again for the courtesy and compliment of this call. (Great applause.)

Aug. gg.—News has been received here that Captain Slooum, who sailed from Boston months ago alone In a fifteen-ton sloop, has arrived safely at Apia, Samoa. THE OTTOMAN BANK AFFAIR Engineered by the Armenian Revolutionists SEVERAL CLERKS KILLED By the Troops Who Had Come to Render Assistance The Belligerent Armenians Surrender on Con dition That They tie Allowed to Leave the Country Associated Press Special Wire CONSTANTINOPLE, Aug. 28.—When the Armenians seized the Ottoman bank on Wednesday last, Edgar Vincent and some of the other directors escaped to the roof, and when the troops ar rived the latter fired haphazard at everybody appearing at the windows. Thus several clerks who were trying to escape were killed. While the fight was proceeding hun dreds of Mussulmans , armed with cudgels and led by the softns, gathered In groups, overran the quarter and killed or assaulted all the Armenians they met. The scene resembled the riots of September, 1835. Several shops in the Galatia were plundered and panic spread over the whole city, especially in the Peru, quarter, where two bombs were thrown into the midst of a group of soldiers,several of whom were wound ed. The people generally were afraid to venture into the streets. The officials of the British postoffice were virtually prisoners until night and the mail was not dispatched. The British charge d'affalrs, Michael Herbert, telegraphed to Tewfik Pasha, the Turkish minister for foreign af fairs, urging the prompt restoration of order. It also appears that while the Otto man bank was b°ing attacked circulars were delivered at the different embas sies, signed by the Armenian commit- tee, declaring that they Inetnded to seize the bank and hold it for two days, dur ing which they wanted the powers to actively Intervene in the settlement of the Armenian question and adding that If the authorities tried to recapture the bank they would blow it up with all its securities. Mr. Vincent went to Yldlz Kiosk'yes terday evening to see the Sultan, and while he was there a message was re ceived from the revolutionists, saying that they were willing to surrender on condition that they were allowed to leave the country. Mr. Vincent ac cordingly returned to the bank and parleyed with the leaders of the Arme nians through the windows. The Ar menians had revolvers In their hands and told him the;- held two of the direct ors and a number of employes of the bank as hostages and that they had seized the bank in order to demonstrate not against the Turks nor the banks, but against the powers who hud abandoned the Armenians. They added that they had selected the Ottoman bank because it was one of the most suitable places, and expressed their willingness to sur render provided they were allowed to retain their revolvers, while yielding up the bombs in their possession and re ceive safe conduct out of the country. These terms were agreed upon and the Armenians surrendered last night and were conveyed on board Mr. Vincent's yacht Gulnarc. THIEVES FELL OUT Two of the Nevada Bank Formers 0:'. Lite Sentences SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 28.—Carl Becker and Jalpes Creegan, the Nevada bank forgers, were today sentenced to life imprisonment by Judge Wallace. Becker, Creegan and A. H. Dean con cocted a scheme to rob the Nevada bank. They raised a draft drawn through the Bank of Woodland, from $12 to $22,000. Dean cashed the check at the Nevada bank, where he had a deposit, claiming lo be a brok'-r. The men got away with the money, but Dean was traced to the east and captured. The three forgers had agreed to help each other out If one was captured, but Becker and Creegan refused to aid Dean and left him to his fate. In revenge Dean disclosed tlie conspiracy to the police and gave them information that resulted in the arrest of Becker and Creegan. Joseph Me- Ctoskey was tried for complicity In the crime but was acquitted. Dean has not yet been tried, but will probably be len iently treated. Becker is said to be the most skillful forger In the country and Creegan was the capitalist who furnish ed the money with which to operate. THE BURNED TOWN Troops Needed to Keep Order—More Help Re quired RICHMOND, Mich., Aug. 28.—More or less trouble has been experienced at On tanagon, Mich., over the distributing of provisions, clothing, etc., and it is re ported the sheriff has asked the gover nor to place at his disposal a company of troops in order to quell any further outbreaks.

THE GREAT MISSION GIANT Fell Like Goliath of Old Before David's Sling CHOYNSKI LOOKED SMALL But Any Lack in Weight He Made Up in Muscle The Scheduled Eight Rounds Was Reduc:d to Pour by the Little rlsfl** Scientific Slugslng—Otier Bouts Associated Press Special Wire SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 28.—Big Joe McAUllflte was knocked out in the fourth round tonight by Joe Choynski before the Occidental club. Three fights were billed, but the one between the b'g men was the attraction that drew 5005 enthusiastic sports to the pavilion at Woodward's gardens. This event was an eight-round "go" between Joe Choynski and Joe McAuliffe, the "Mis sion Giant," the first man defeatd by Peter Jackson when the latter came to this country six years ago. McAuliffe has been on the retired list for two or three years. He began training for the present contest weighing 285 pounds, and entered the ring tonight at about 225 to 230 pounds. The men presented a great contrast as they shook hands for the first round. McAuliffe lowered nearly four inches above his antagonist, with an advan tage of tree inches in reach. His ap pearance indicated that he had reduced his weight at the expense of his strength and endurance. Choynski. on the con trary, looked the picture of health. He was trained to the hour, and what he lacked In height, weight and reach he made up in wonderful muscular devel opment and cleverness. He entered the ring at about 170 pounds. Chovnskl assumed the aggressive from the start, and hit McAuliffe when and where he pleased. The "Mission Giant" was completely outmatched, and was a plaything in Choynski's hands. Little Joe played on big Joe's wind with his left and on the jaw with right, and when the giant came up for the fourth round he was perceptibly winded. In this round Chcynskl went at his man like a demon. First a poke in the stom ach with his left and a jab In the face- with his right soon made McAuliffe groggy. Finally, in the mid dle of the round Choynski swung his right with terrible force. It landed on MoAullffe's jaw and the fight was over. The giant's legs weakened and he fell to tlie floor with a crash. He could no' get up within the required ten seconds and the tight was awarded to Choynski. The latter wrs unpunished and was ia good condition when the fight ended. His clumsy antagonist managed to land, on Choynsk face once or twice and. sent his head back, but fiat did not keep the smaller man from going at him relentlessly. McAuliffes efforts to reduce his weight told on his strength and he could not keep up the fast pace set for him. Round one—Choynski assumed the ag gressive and led with a left for the wind, getting away without a return blow.He repeated this blow three times and made MoAulille grunt. Choynski reach ed his face with a left itwing. McAu liffe reached Choynski's body with a light left. Both led with left and coun ter on face. Choynski reached the face with a left swing and McAuliffe re turned the compliment with a left on Choknskl's face, which sent the latter's head back. Choynski reached McAu liffe's face three times with his left In quick succession and got one on the face In return. The round ended in Choyn ski's favor. . . , , Round two—Choynski reached wind twice with terrilic left swings. McAu liffe guarding his wind, left an opening for the face which Choynski took advan tage of, leuding and landing on his fa£e with left swings three times in quick succession. McAuliffe did some leading but his clever antagonist got out of his r«ach of the giant' long arms. McAu liffe landed on the body and got a hard left on the nose, which brought the blood. Choynski went at his man like a demon and landed with his left on the his wind and right over the heart. Mc- Auliffe clinched to avoid the hard body blows. Chokyski rushed his man and landed hard on his body and face with his left. McAuliffe got in his left on the head which put Choynski's curly head hack. The round was decidedly In Choynski's favor. Hound three—McAuliffe led with his left and Choynski ducked. McAuliffe ducked a wicked left swing. ChonysM reached the face twice with his left and again reached his opponent's wind with the same hand. The remainder of the round was a series of left swings on the wind and left jabs in the face from Choynski, which told perceptibly on the big man. At the end of the round Mc- Auliffe was somewhat winded. He reached Choynski two or thrre times but his blows lacked steam. The round end ed with a vicious left swing from Choynski which staggered McAuliffe. Round four and last—Choynski saw his advantage and went at his man from the ring of the bell, smashing him with his left in the wind and right drives in the Jaw. He soon had his man groggy and one last right on the chin put the giant against the ropes from which he reeled and fell to the floor. He looked able to get up but evidently had had enough of Choynski's swings and punches, so he remained down until the referee had counted ten. Tlie next bout was between Charles Cueno of San Francisco and Charles Fowler of Sacramento. Cueno showed all the cleverness and punished his man considerably. Fowler was game, but Cueno was awarded the decision at the end of the fifth round. The next event was a ten-round go be tween Gus Herget and Spider Kelly. It was the best fight seen in many a day. The men set a terrific pace from the first and kept it up all the way to the end of the tenth. Both men showed consider able cleverness and any amount of jcanieness. Kelly did most of the lead ing In the first four rounds and punlsh i d Herget, cutting his eye and covering him with blood. It looked an if Herget would go In the fifth but Jimmy Carroll. Herget's second, sent his man after Kelly and evened up things until the tenth round, when Kelly gained enough of a lead to secure the decision. Tj c lone highwayman He Expresses Antl-Monopolistic Sentiments While Robbing a t-tagr BAKBRBFIELD, Aug. 28.—As the four horse stage from Kemvllle to Caliente was crossing a gulch five miles south of Havl lah about noon today a elude masked man Stepped out of the brush nnd Ordered all hands up. John Swett, driver, and three passengers, were in the stage. The Jobber wore a cluck coat, blue overalls, white hat and na'k made of a flour sack.

Tbe express bog was bolted to the bottom of the Mage, hut he made the driver take a wrench and get It loose. That took eight or ten mlnutej, and during that time the passengers had a good chance to note the dre=s of tn» robber. Dan Doherty, one of tlie passengers, is an old resident in that part of the country, and says it was an en tire stranger. When thn driver said he could not get th<- box out the robber said he had a aV'owhar behind a tree that he could use. As two or three clean-ups have be«-n made this week at the mines near Kemvllle, there is thought to have been about Slnou in the box. Sheriff Borg- Wardt is organizing a posse to go in pur suit.

At Tonawanda were gathered 200 or 300 people. Mr. and Mrs. Bryan shook hands with a typical country crowd. Bryan spoke brielly. His voice shows the wear , and tear of the week's work. When the cars moved off it was followed by three cheers "for the next president." His speech, in part, is as follows: "Ladles and Gentlemen: The Chicago platform, while it was written and adopted by the Democrats of the South and West, does not raise any sectional question. It simply reasserts the Dem ocracy first taught by Thomas Jef ferson and afterwards defended by An drew Jackson (applause), and the Dem ocracy upon which the Democrats must always stand, unless it decides to aban don fhe principles from the beginning, and substitute plutocracy, which some have called modern Democracy. (Ap plause.) The Chicago platform simply reiterates those fundamental princi ples upon which our form of government must rest. The keynote of the Chicago platform ls found in the Declaration of Independence, that, all men are created equal, and that therefore no citizens have a right to appropriate to them selves blessings the creator intended for all people of this country. (Ap plause.) Laws should not be made so that many will toil and few enjoy the fruits of the toil of many. That platform means that every man shall be defended In the enjoyment of that which he earns, but no man shall be permitted to enjoy that which somebody else haa earned and which is taken from him by vlcioua legislation."
