The Olympia looks as smart now as a yacht. The anchors were hardly down before details of the crew were wash? ing the ship's white sides and touching up the stains with paint. ANNOUNCES HIS ARRIVAL. The Admiral's tlrst business was to send nn officer ashore with telegrams for the Navy Department, Mayor Van Wyck and General Butterfield, an? nouncing the arrival. He then spent most of the morning In looking over newspapers und receiv? ing reporters. He was Just finishing a midday breakfast when Sir Thomas Llplon called on him. With Sir Thomas were Dr. Mackay and other visiting Englishmen. "1 suppose you have come for the tea," said Admiral Dewey, referring to Sir Thomas' gift of five pounds of tea to each man on the ship while he was at Colombo. "No; yi.u're welcome to that If any? body can drink It," replied Sir Thomus. THE BARONET CHEERED. The Admiral and the owner of the otip challenger hud a fifteen minute talk. As Sir Thomas and his friends left the Olympia a half hundred of the ship's crew forward cheered the Baronet. "I couldn't stop em," cried out Ad? miral Dewey, waving his hand at Sir Thoma3 Llpton. "They hadn't any or? ders to do that." NOTABLE CALLERS. Admiral Dewey then had a succes slon of notable callers. Hem- Arimlrii Sampson, with Cnptain Chadwick, his chief of staff, and Lieutenant Com? mander Winslow, hla flag lieutenant, came on the Dolphin. When the dls patch boat was a mile away It began liriug nn Admiral's salute, and the Olympia replied with a Rear Admiral's salute of'13 guns. The Dolphin anchored near the Olympia and Rear Admiral Sampson ,ind his staff went on board. They were received by Admiral Dewey, Cap rain Lamberton, Lieutenant Brumby and the officers of the deck, the full marine guard and band being parnded. The officers went to the Admiral's e.ibln. Rear Admiral Sampson remaln ?d on board for more than an hour. Rear Admiral Sampson had first learned of Admiral Dewey's arrival at the Brooklyn navy-yard, where he went about 10 o'clock to sec Rear-Admiral Philip. Soon after Rear Admiral Samp? son had gone Rear Admiral Philip voy? aged down the bay In the Narkeeta and paid an oillcial call, attended^ by Commander J. D. J. Kelley. The Rear Admiral's salute was not fired In this case, by request of Rear Admiral Phil? ip. Admiral Dewey received these of? ficial visits in undress uniform, TYPHOID FEVER. Dr. Sunborn, of the port physician's staff, visited the Olympia and looked nt her papers. Eleven of the crew of 375 men have typhoid fever. Some of the cases are convalescent and all of them are of a mild type, 'according to Dr. Percy, the ship's surgeon. No one has died of the fever, and with this ex? ception the sailors and marines are well. Dr. Percy Is unable to account for the presence of typhoid on the ship. The cases are not numerous or serious enough to cause him alarm and It Is probable that the sick men will be taken ashore to a hospital to-mor? row. George DM well, collector of the port, Postmaster Van Cott. and several of the customs officials visited the Ad? miral and were personally conducted around the ship by him. All day tugs, sailboats and excursion steamers came up near the Olympia and took a look at her. Everybody who asked was permitted to coma on board. ANCHORED IN LONELY PLACE. I The Olympla's anchorage was rather a lonely place, and altogether not a great many vessels made a point of going there. It Is, however, near the main ship channel. The North German Lloyd steamer Saalc, outward bound, passed close to the Olympia. The Saale'a passengers crowded to the rails. Admiral Dewey responded to waving pocket handkerchiefs by lifting his cap several times. The Sa.'.le's band played "The Star Spangled Ban? ner," and the Olympia dipped her Hag. The Cunarder Urania passed out half an hour afterward. She tired seventeen signal bombs. Admiral Dewey directed the Olympla's band to I play "God Save the Queen." VISITS THE BARONET. The Admiral, about 6 o'clock, return? ed Sir Thomas Lipton's visit. Lieut. Brumby and the Admiral's son, George G. Dewey, were with him. Sir Thomas met the Admiral at the Starboard gang? way of the Erin with his friends and the entire party went to the after cabin, where the health of the Ad? miral, the Shamrock and, of course, the Columbia, were drunk amid enthu? siasm. The Admiral remained on board for nearly half an hour and then started for Iiis ship. The Erin's crew began to cheer, nnd as his launch drew away the entire ship's company, guests, of? ficers, crew, servants, Cingalese ond ell, led by Sir Thomas, with a hip, hip, hip, pave throe honest cheers, the kind Hint the Admiral heard from the British wnrships In Manila bay. Ad? miral Dewey waved his gold-bound cap like a school boy ns ho stood on the rail of his little white canopied launch. THE ADMIRAL'S PLANS. Admiral Dewey purposes, unless bis plans shall be changed by the recep? tion committee, to bring the Olympia up the lower bay and anchor ins'de the harbor, with the squadron of United States warships, off Tompklnsvllls, of which squadron he is now in command. ARCHBISHOP CHAPELLE. WORK EXPECTED OF HIM IN THE PHILIPPINES. (By Telegraph to Vlrglnlan-Pilot.) Washington, Sept, 20.?The announce? ment that Archbishop Chapelle, of New Orleans, has been chosen apostellc dele? gate for the Philippines, attracts much attention In official and clerical quar? ters. The position has been vacant up to this time, and owing to the large property Interests of the church In the Philippines, the ofllclal status It occu? pied under Spain, and the Influence of the clergy over the natives. It has been regarded as an Important factor in the present reconstruction. About a year ago the Pope named Archbishop Chapelle as apostolic dele? gate for Cuba and Porto Rico, but no appointment was made for the Philln pines, and the Archbishop, of Manila has continued to exercise chief Jurisdic? tion, dealing directly with Rome. In view of his former strong pro "Spanish views, his co-operation with the United States military authorities at Manila has been the source of much satisfaction to the church authorities here. But It Is felt that the presence of a delegate In this country, authorized to act for the Vatican, will permit more direct co-operation on the questions which are constantly arising. Under Spanish rule, the Archbishop of Manila was a government ofllclal, receiving $12,000 annually, while four bishops' at the head of the four dioceses constitut? ing the IslarTd, received $6.000 each. This status no longer exists, and the church officials are maintained out of the church resources. It is expected that Archbishop Cha pelle's appointment will permit a re? organization of the church system of the islands, based on the changed con? ditions which have been established.
