V Associated Press. Amoy, Oct. '.'8. When the Chinese government selected Amoy as the port to receive the second squadron of tho American battlejhlp fleet, It made a wise choice. The broad, well protected harbor, the climate (from October to April ), unsurpassed, und the scenic beauty of the eurrotind Ing country all unite In j ust 1 fyTrrr? the selertlon. The second squadron consists of tne battleships Louisiana, Virginia, Ohio, Missouri, Wisconsin, Illinois, Kentucky and Kearsarge, under command of Kear-Admiral William 11. Kuioryaud, according to tho Itin erary, they are duo here October 29, !and will remain until November i. TUe Chinese governuieut hit set aside the sum of 400,000 taels (P. S. gold $2S0,000), to meet the ex penses of entertaining the battleship squadron during Its visit. The com mit ice 'u charge of the arraiiReiuents has stated that tbe Peking govern ment has signified Its willingness to Ltnake an addltonat appropriation snou.a me or.gina. appropriation prove inadequate. Amoy is well adapted to the re- eeptlou of the fleet. The harbor Is probably the hest on tho China coast. Although jnaoy city, like most Chi nese cities, is dirty and decidedly uninviting, yet there la a lat-ge open plot .of ground, known as the drill grounds and race course, about one mile distant from Amoy city and directly accessible from the sea. This plot of ground lends itself exceed ingly well to the purposes of the en tertainment. On the south and east it. Is surrounded by picturesque hills while on tbe north and west Is the sea. Thus it will uot bo necessary upon '.bis occasion tor any one to enter the City of Amoy. . Tho foreigners resident at the port of Amoy live on the Island ' of Kulangsu, opposite Amoy city. This Island comprises what l known as tho Kulanssii In ternational Settlement and Is govern ed In a manner similar to the Shans hal International Settlement, The reception and festivities given by the FEED CROP IN DEMAND LIVI WKK K OWN Kits l .

The Chinese reception and enter tainment will bl distinctly Chinese in It.s nature, ycl so planned as not to be Inconsistent with tho American Ideas of enjoyment. The grounds are circular in shape, and a road thirty feet Wide will lead In Mil the sea to these grounds, a distance of about, one-quarter of a mile. 'This road continues hall' uiilo further und connects with a beautiful Chi nese temple (Nan Ku Ton Miaoi, in the hillH to tne .south of the grounds. Clusters of bamboos at Intervals of every ten feet have been planted u Ion i; each side of the road for Its entire distance. Chinese lanterns will be strung along through these (lusters of bamboos.

Acting upon the suggestion of the American Consul Julean IL Arnold, the entertainment for the men will consist for the most part In a carni val of sports. Two handsome silver cups, to be made in Canton and cost ing $1,250 each, will ibe awarded as prl.es to the ships winning the base hall and football games. A tele gram was sent to Admiral Sperry at Auckland, requestibg, that the pre liminary names be played before ar rival at Amoy, leaving tbe eini linals and finals for Amoy. To this request Admiral Sperry assented. Hoat races and other sports will al so form part of the program, for theso prizes, aggregating about $1, 000, will be awarded. Instead of presenting each visitor with a medal or button as Is custom ary ou such occasions, Commissioner, Alark has arranged to present each officer with a Chinese cloisonne vase and to each man a Chinese cloisonne cup. It is stated by those wiio, are , in a position to Jnow that, despite the fact that I he yields in all crops have been larger than ever known before in the Panhandle, no feed will go to waste. This is due to the faci that the country Is scttlirfs up, and farm ers coming in rrom different sections of tho country are demanding a por tion of the bountiful harvesf. More land Is to be farmed 'during the com ing season than ever before, and the promise for thousandsof acres of waving grain Instead of native grass es is to be fulfilled.
