guard from Governors Island. A solitary policeman stood guard at the gate of the tomb, in which had been placed earlier in the day a wreath from Mrs. U. S. Grant Sr., consisting of white roses and galaxy leaves tied with a satin bow. Li Hung C ang and party drove up River side drive opposite the tomb at 4:15 o'clock. His appearance was a signal for hearty cheering. There was a short delay while one of the Chinese attendants hastened back to a rear carriage to bring Li Hung Chang'a sedan chair. When it arrived he was carried by four policemen from the road to the tomb. He carried his um brella in one hand and a gold-mounted cane in the other. Oa reaching the top of the flight of steps Li alighted. The heavy iron door leading to the tomb wa3 then opened. Li, after taking in one hand his floral wreath, entered the crypt and placed it on the iron casket. Before doing so he made a pro found bow. At his Bide were Colonel Fred Grant, his brother U. S. Grant of San Diego, Cal., and his son, U. S. Grant Jr., as well as Lo Fung Lv, the Chinese inter preter. On the steps outside stood Gen eral Ruger, General Horace Porter, Colonel J. J. McCook, J. H. Seward and Captain Mills. Several members of the Viceroy's suite, including his son, Lord Li, also stood near the entrance. Li's wreath was a beautiful affair. It was about four feet in diameter and con sisted of bay leaves and white and mauve orchids tied with yellow velvet. The oc casion seemed to affect Li deeply. In con versation with Colonel Grant he referred to his admiration of the late General's qualities. One of the leading reasons, he added, for returning home by America was to visit his friend's grave. Through the interpreter he made many inquiries about the mausoleum, toward vrhicn he forwarded Hon. John Russell Young a check for $500. After remaining standing for twenty minutes alongside of the casket Li uttered several words in Chinese and made a pro found bow. Stepping backward to the door he repeated the same words to him self and made a second bow. ' Then he withdrew. As he seated himself in the sedan chair the crowd uttered a rousing cheer. Tnis seemed to please him greatly, for he gently nodded hiaJiead. The eutire party then entered carriages and were driven to the residence of Colonel Grant in East Sixty-second street. There a crowd of 3000 people awaited them. Li declined the use of the sedan chair, and leaning on the arm of General Ruger and Colonel Grant he ascended the flight of carpeted steps. At the d&or he was met by Ulysses S. Grant, son of the late General. The other meniDers of the party followed. The Viceroy was conducted to the parlor, where he was received by Mrs. Grant, widow of the late General. Mrs. Grant and Li are old friends and the meeting was affecting. Mre. Grant met his Excel lency in China in 1879, when accompany ing General Grant on his trip around the world. The Viceroy was presented to all the invited guests. He spoke feelingly to Mrs. Grant of the great lost she had sustained in the death of her husband and said he would always cherish the General's memory. Then the Viceroy presented Mrs. Grant with several pieces of brocaded silk, a rare Chinese vase and a number of chests of tea. He also presented U. S. Grant Jr. with a valuable jade stone. The Viceroy seemed to enjoy iu3 visit greatly. Refresh- ments were served, but Li contented him , self with taking two enpsof tea and smok ing a few cigarettes. The visit lasted an hour. When Li was on the point of leav ing Mrs. Grant presented him with a large sized steel engraving of her husband. Li Hung Chang, accompanied by Colo nel Grant, reached the Waldorf on his re turn at 6:45 p. m., and retired for the night at 8:30 o'clock. He will leave the hotel at 7:30 a. m. to-morrow to board the United States dispatch boat Dolphin. After in specting the warships down the bay West Point will be visited. TURKEY AND THE POWERS Russia and Austria Reach an Entente in Support of the Sultan. Foreign Diplomats Warn the Porte That Grave Consequences Will Follow Me ss acres. VIENNA, Austria, Aug. 30.— 1t is re ported that an entente has been reached between Russia and Austria, by the terms of which the two Governments will oppose the claims of the Armenians upon Turkey and will support the Sultan in tne main tenance of his territory intact. CONSTANTINOPLE, Turkey, Aug. 30. The city to-day has been quiet, and no re ports of further disturbances have been received. It is announced that the Gov ernment has decided to leave it to the choice of the residents whether or not the city shall be illuminated to-morrow even ing, upon the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of the accession to the throne of the Sultan. . No pyrotechnic diplays will be permitted, however. Last night a number of shots were fired and bombs exploded in the Galata quarter. Six Armenians were arrested. Bombs were also thrown at the offices of the Credit Lyonnais and the tobacco regie. Yesterday the foreign diplomats, after holding a somewhat protracted confer ence, wired a strongly worded note to the Yildiz appealing to the Sultan directly, in the name of the countries they represented to put a stop to the horrors which were being enacted, and to which in some instances members of the various embassies had been eyewitnesses. The foreign representatives in their note men tioned the violation and pillage of the homes of foreigners and the maßsacre of Armenians and warned the Sultan of the grave consequences which would ensue if a stop were not put to the killing and pil lage. LONDON, Eng., Aug. 30.— The Daily News to-morrow will publ.sh a dispatch from Constantinople giving a report of an interview with Mr. Barker, who, instead of Governor Vincent, as before reported, was held as a hostage by the Armenians who seized the Ottoman Bank on Wednes day last. Mr. Barker says his captors tola him they came from Macedonia and that they intended also to attack the Porte and the patriarchate, to blow up the Voivoida police station and seize the Credit Lyonnais, but matters were precipitated at the Ottoman Bank. They further said that they would shortly return to Con-, stantinople and persist in their demands' upon the Government until they should get what they requested, namely, the re forms formulated by the powers in 1895, together with, complete autonomy for the province.

But the Sessions Are Expected to Be Very , Lively and Interesting. THE CZAR'S VISIT TO BRESLATJ Court Whispers That the Kaiser Gets a Scolding From His Mother. Various Notes. Copyrtg ed, 1898, by ths United Associated Presses.] BERLIN, Geemany, Aug. 30.— 1t is now announced that tne annual congress of the German Socialists will be convened at Sieblichen, near Gotha, ou October 1L It was originally intended to hold the con gress in the city of Gotha, but this was found impossible for the reason lhat the executive committee of the feocialists were refused the occupancy of any hall in tnat city capable of containing the number of persons who would be present as delegates, to say nothing of the spectator?, the own ers declining to allow their halls to be used for the purpose of Socialist meetings. The programme of the congress is heavily charged with resolutions in which a num ber of questions appear. Foremost of these is the question of reorganizing the directing committee and the local com mittees, wnose working mechanism suf fered to a great degree under the decrees issued against Socialists by Herr yon Koeller during the latter part of that gen tleman's occupancy of the post of Prussian Minister of the Interior. Then there are the reports of Herr Bebel, the Socialist leader in the Reich stag, upon the International Socialist Con gress recently held in London, applying to the German Socialists the lessons which the Continental Socialists leained at the London congress, and there will certainly be a lively discussion of Herr Bebel's pre sentation of his views and recommenda tions. Next the congress will be asked to pronounce in favor of proportional repre sentation in the electoral system, it is only natural that the delegates to the congress should support the proposal for proportional representision, which, if the method should be applied, would have the effect of sending nineiy-hve Socialists to the Reichstag instead of forty-three, as at present. The debat3 on this question will be purely academic, as there is not the re motest chance that the system of pro portional representation will prevail in Germany. Among the other subjects of debate by the congress will be Dr. Lat genau's reports on the proportional repre sentation system, Frau Clara Kettin's paper on woman's rights and Herr Aver's reiort on the question of organization. The meeting is likely to be an exceed ingly lively and interesting one. despite the fact that the anarchists will be kept out of the congress, for th->re is certain io be a row over the upheaval which has occurred within the fold of the Vorwaerts, the lead ing organ of the German socialists, six editors of which journal, headed by Dr. Adolf Braun, published a protest in the leading column of the Vorwaertson Thurs day denouncing Herr Liebknecbt's dicta torial management of the paper. Whether Liebknecht be present in Berlin or absent from the city he absolutely controls the policy of the Vorwaerts without even the pretense of consulting with his col leagues. "If," says the protest of the editors, "the authority of Herr Liebknecht is alone com petent to decide all questions we unani mously resign our connection with the paner. The immediate ground of the quarrel, which has resulted in the withdrawal of tne principal pditors of the Vorwaerts, was the action of Herr Liebknecbt in disavow ing the attack made in the paper upon the Socialist leader, Herr Quarek of Frank fort, apropos of his scheme for thp estab lishment of workingmen's syndicates. To the general public this disputing over Socialist jealousies and the open exhibi tion of insubordination of the minor lead ers in the Socialist party presents a pitiful spectacle and is greatly weakenine popu lar belief in its force as a political factor. The temporary silence of the German newspapers in regard to the ministerial crisis does not imply that the Emperor has arranged with Prince Hohenlohe that the latter shall retain the ChanceJlorship, nor does the announcement of the Reichs anzeiger, the official gazette, that a bill for the reform of military judicial pro cedure is to be considered by the Buncies rath to avert the resignation of the Chan cellor or remove the probability of a con flict between the Kaiser and the Reich stag. The fact is that a great deal depends upon the nature of the measure placed before the Bundesrath. If the Emperor assents to the reorm demanded by the Reichstag making the military tribunals, independent proceedings and the supreme military court's final proceedings public, no constitutional struggle will arise over this question. But the Emperor certainly will not assent to such a measure, and every one knowing the exact situation still expects that the matter will give rise to a fig t in the Reichstag of the gravest character in defense of the constitutional authority against the court cabals. If Prince Hohenlohe retires alter seeing the visit of the Czar to Breslau concluded hi 3 retirement will be the <<ienal for a gen eral rising against the Emperor's secret advisers, his military cabinet, his naval cabinet and his civil cabinet, which are now practically ruling the affairs of the empire. The imperial court will remain at Pots dam until Christmas. The arrangement of the Emperor's programme for the com ing week has been slightly altered. The Emperor will leave Potsdam on Tuesday, going to Dresden to attend the military maneuvers there. From Dresden bis Majesty \nll go directly to Breslnn, where he will receive the Russian Emperor. Prince Henry of Prussia, the Kaiser's brother, will also go to Breslau, and after the gala opera performance in honor of the Czar will start on Sunday directly for Kiel, where he will receive the Czar upon the arrival of the latter there. All busi ness will be suspended in Breslan on Sep tember 5, the day of the arrival of ti e Czar and his reception by the Emneror. After the military maneuvers the Kaiser will proceed to Kiel and go on boarl the imperial yacht Hohenzollern, from the deck of which he will watch the naval evolutions. There are court whispers that the Empress Frederick has written to the Kaiser rebuking him for ignoring the visit to Germany of the Duke nnd Duchess of Soarta, the latter ti.e Emperor's sister, who have recently been staying with the letter's mother, Empress Frederick, at THE SAN FRANCISCO CALL, MONDAY, AUGDST 31, 1835. Kronberg. The Emperor quarreled with his sister over her conversion to the Greek church upon the occasion of her marriage to the heir to the Greek throne, and has since given the cold shoulder to her and her husband. The Catholic congress, which closed after a five days' session at Dortmund on Friday, passed a resolution proposed by Dr. Porsch, warning German Catholics against emigrating to America under the present economic conditions. Among the other resolutions adopted were those condemning the practice! of dueling among officers of the army and navy, and deploring the fact that no Christian power has effectively espoused me cause of the Armenians. Resolutions were also passed advocating the repeal of the an*i- Jesuit law and the prohibition of the em ployment of married women in factories. The International Women's Congress, which is to sit in September, now counts 300 delegates as certain to be present, in cluding Florence Routledge of the British Women's Trades Union League. The Tageblatt is still pursuing the ques tion of the safeguarding of German inter ests in Samoa. In an article published yesterday the paper says that in conse quence of American intrigues in Samoa the German cruisers Buzzard and Falke and the dispatch-boat Mowe have been or dered to Apia. For the first time since 1870 French visitors have begun to return to the Baden races, once their favorite resort. The re newed prestige of the Baden meeting was chiefly due to the largely increased sum of money which has been expended for this year's meeting. Prince Egon vr»n Furstenberg and the Prince of Wales fp peared on the course two days side by side with Prince Hermann of Saxe-Weimar, who was a guest of the Count and Count ess Festetics at' Hamilton Palace. A large number of Americans were present at the races. Lieutenant Harlan of the Prussian Uhlans, who was the victor of a noted leng-distance ride, was killed a day or two ago by being thrown from his horse. He was the son of a Mr. Harlan, a former Prominent Marksmen Who Are Competing for Honors at the San Jose Tournament. United States Consul in Germany, who is now living in retirement in Dresden. Dr. Barth, the noted Radical Unionist leader in the Reichstag, sailed for New York from Bremen on August 25, on board the steamer Havel. He goes to America for the purpose of watching the Presiden tial campaign and the election. Dr. Barth is especially interested in the currency and tariff questions. Tne American Theoiophists, Mesdames Tingley and Wright and Messrs. Hargrove and Patterson, had a warm reception upon tneir arrival here at the hands of the rep resentative Tbeesophists of Germany. The Theosophists of Berlin, Hamburg, Dresden, Nuremberg and Breslau have sent dele gates to the Theosophist congress. The Emperor gave a prolonged audience on iridav and another on Sunday to Freiherr Marschali yon Bieberstein, Min ister of Foreign Affairs. The interview resulted among other decisions in a re solve not to assent to Great Britain's con version of the protectorate of Zanzibar into a crown colony. It was also agreed that in view of the fact that it might prejudice German consular rights to act otherwise Seyyid Khalid, the usurping Sultan, who* escaped from the burning palace at Zanzibar and took refuge at the German consulate, should be surrendered to the British authorities if he is guaran teed treatment as a prince and a prisoner of war.

C, Aug. 30.— The significance to be attached to the resigna tion of the entire Japanese Cabinet, which was apparently not deemed of sufficient importance in Tokio official circles to notify the legation at Washington, is thought here to be wholly personal. Count Ito, having resigned after lone wishing to be relieved of official cares, his colleagues have formally tendered their resignations on tue appointment of his successor to give tne new Premier, Count Kuroda, an opportunity to select his own assistants. BULLETS FLY ON SAN JOSE RANGE, Marksmen in Competition for Prizes at the Butts. TURNERS WHO SHOOT. Unfavorable Light Prevents the Making of Phenomenal Scores. SOCIAL GATHEKING AT NIGHT. Large Numbers of Rfl men From Surrounding Cities Are in Attendance. SAN JOSE, Caj,., Aug. 29.— This has been a great day with the San Jose Turner shooting section. While the rifle range has been used this was the first big shoot for prizes, and an invitation was extended to marksmen all over the State. The con tests will continue to-morrow, and the fes tival will end with a ball in the evening. The Turn Verein has now a membership of over 200 and the shooting section boasts of forty marksmen. It was organized in 1893 Dy Captain Klein, starting with a charter membership of twenty-five. A year ago the organization purchased a pretty plat of four acres of ground three miles south of San Jose. Ornamental trees were set out and arbors constructed to beautify the park. To-day the trees are in foliage and the arbors are Covered with hop vines. A dancing pavilion, bowling alley and shooting stand and six targets (200 yards) are among the other improve ments. The range is fitted witu all mod ern appliances and the targets are backed by a high hill. The entire property and improvements cost over $6000. A line of electric-cais connects the park witu San Jose. Last night the guests began to arrive, the first being the San Francisco Red Men's schuetzen section, all in uniform. This body was under the direction of Cap tain John Tildemann, First Lieutenant Henry Griebe and Second Lieutenant William Dressier. This morning the first train from San Francisco brought down William Ehrenpfort, Dr. L. L. B»bin and Mrs. Babin, H. fetrecker ot San Joaquin, Philo Jacoby, O. Schlueter ot Woodland, Fred Wille, Adolph Strecner, John Ut schig and others. The guests were met at the depot by the San Jose Turners and the San Francisco Red Men, headed by Schu bert's baud. Alter marching through the principal street the pleasure-seekers and marksmen went out to the park. There the following committees were in charge: Committee on anangements— Hugo Otter (chairman), L. Webefe Captain Fred Schu macher, ired Baumgartner, H. Rohr, A. Ourr len, L. Zeigler, L. Heuning and George Keffel. Prize committee—*. Posky, George Keffcl, F. Baumgartner and Karl Klein. Captain Schumacher presided as shoot ing-master and F. Posky as master of ceremonies. Tue bowiing contests were under the direction of Henry Doer. The refreshments in the pavilion were under the supervision of Mrs. F. Schumacher, Mrs. L". Buff, Mra. M. Posky. Mrs. A. Zeiler, Mrs. G. Otter, Mrs. H. Prugmeier anil Mr 3. M. Schmitt. Those who did not care for shooting went to the pavilion, but few caring to walk around the grounds on account of the moisture, lor it rained last night and this morning. The rain, no doubt. Kept a number away from the park. It did not take the riflemen long to get to work on tt.e targets. , The rules are the same as govern all. There were four point and two honorary targets. On the point targets there were fifteen prizes for the best centers and fifteen for the most points. Silver medals will be given to marksmen making over 50 points and cash prizes for 100, 200 and 260 points. An extra prize consisting of a beautiful gold medal, do.mted by the San Jose Mer cury, will be given to the marksman scor ing the most points in both days' shooting. On the honorary target, 25-ring German standard, tuere are 75 prizes, valued at $750. These consist of jewelry, silverware and household goods. Three shots consti tute a score. At 10 o'clock the targets ware opened and the rifles were quickly popping for the first bullseye on the honorary target. The honor fell to Jacob Fournie and he won %1 60. The last bullseye in the forenoon was contested. William Ehrenpfort and O. Schleiter pulling together and getting the red flajr at the same time. It was decided that they should divide the honor and prize. Dr. F. Bangs started out well on the honorary target, making 22, 23, 24 — 69. Dr. A. M. Barker followed soon after with 20, 24, 22—66, and Jacob Fffurnie with 21, 17, 23-61. On the Doint targets the shooting was fairly good. W hiie there was no wind, the light was not as good as could be desired. When the targets were rung down at noon the Turners and their guasts re paired to the pavilion, where the ladies had prepared a fine lunch, to which jus tice was done. Captain Schumacher in a neat speech welcomed his guests and bade tht i enjoy themselves. Captain Tiede niann of the Red Men, Philo Jacoby, Wil liam Ehrenpfort and others also spoke briefly. When the tables were cleared a Jarge number engaged in dancing, while the riflemen returned to the range. There was a lively struggle for the first builseye after noon, and it fell to the lot of John Utschig to win the $2 50 prize. A. Strecker's first ticket on the honorary target crowded Dr. Bangs', as he made 22, 21, 25—68. J. Utschig quickly went two better: 24, 24, 22—70. Ou the point target Philo Jacoby made a peculiar ticket, which showed even, holding but poor luck, as he got no red flags. It was: 1, 2, 2, 1, 2, 2, 1, 2—13 points. J. Utschig had better success, for he ran 2, 1, 2, 3, 1, 1, 3, 2 — 15 points, the highest made up to 3 o'clock. As the afternoon advanced the condi tions of light were less favorable to good shooting, the clouds and sunshine playing tricKs on the bullseyes and sights. As a result no very good scores were made. A. Strecker reached 16 on the point tar get, while Dr. Bangs, Dr. Barker and Uts- chig pulled up, close with 15 each. The last bullseye in the afternoon was made by A. Strecker. To-morrow both targets will be kept open from 10 to 5 o'clock, and it will be late in the evening before the cash and honorary prize-winners will be known. To-ni.p;ht the Turners and their guests and wives and daughters had a jolly time in Turner Hail on Third street. L. Zeigler officiated as master of ceremonies. Four large tables were spread with re freshments. W. H. Currling delivered the address of welcome, speaking for Mayor Koch, to whom this pleasing office fell, but who is ill. Mr. Currling discussed the singine, ath letic and shooting sections of the Turners and said that these three were the only true manly sports, in fact they went to gether. Henry Hirsch, assisted by the singing section, sang a solo entitled "On Guard." He was recalled repeatedly. Living pictures were presented by the Turner athletes, which" showed the fine physical training they received at the hands of Professor Ritter. The Turners look forward to a fine time to-morrow. A number of marksmen are expected from San Francisco, and in the evening the prize distribution will be fol lowed by a grand ball. CARE DPTEN OFF SH ORE.

Z Osborne May Fill the Republican Electoral Vacancy. TO SUCCEED CROCKER. The Editor Said to Be the State Central Committee's Choice. M'KINLEY'S STKENGTH GROWS. The Bryan Tide Now Ebbing Through out the Southern Portion of California' LOS ANGELES. Cal., Aug. 30.— 1t is stated that the Republican State Central Committee has decided to place Colonel H. Z. Osborne, editor of the Evening Ex press, on the electoral ticket, in the plaie made vacant by the resignation of Colonel C. F. Crocker. It has been argued by the friends of Osborna that, as the northern part of the State was represented in the choice of Irving M. Scott, Southern Cali fornia should be recognized, too. Mr. Os borne is prominent in politics in this sec tion and is popular in the party. The one topic of discussion to-dny has been the monster political demonstration in favor of McKinley at Hazzard's Pavilion last night. The result of the attempt of a band of Democrats to disturb tne orators has been to set taoughtful people against the chaotic Bryan crowd. Colonel Harri son Gray Otis, whose able sp?ech at Pasa dena did much in aid of the cause, said to-day: "The great meeting has done much to unite Republicans and to insure the chances of a victory for McKinley." In the same strain were the words of Colonel H. Z. Osborne, Frank Flint and other prominent men who have studied the situation. Some who favored free silver at the outset now begin to see that open mills and busy factories are what the people need and that free silver on the Bryan plan is a delusion and a snare. John C. Collins, a well-known carpenter, who has summed up the situation care fully said to a Call correspondent to night: "At the outset there was considerable hurrah over Bryan in laboring circles, but I can say beyond all doubt that the tide has set in the other way in dead earnest. Where ttiere were ten men for Bryan at the start there are not five now." In every part of the city there is marked interest to-day in the campaign for pro tection ana prosperity and the Republi cans are feeling much encouraged since the inauguration of the campaign with the monster meeting.
