He Will lie Furnished a Splendid Man sion in London—The Chinese Vice roy Insists on Eating From H s Uv/n Cuisine Before Cuing to Fbb lio Dinners. (Copyright, 1S0G. by Associated Press.) London. August 1.—The preparation for the reception of Li Hung Chang contiues, and HerMajesty, in spite of the precarious state of her health, is said to he especially interested in the coming of the Chinese ambassador ex traordinary, who has been made so much of in itussia, Germany and France. The Chinese statesman is booked to land in England on Monday, and he will 'be escorted to Lord Lous dale’s splendid mansion on Cariton House Terrace, this city, which has been secured by the gov rnm -nt for tli 1 accommodation of Li Hung Chang dur ing the month which he is expected to spend in England. An elaborate ser ies of entertainments and royal events has been arranged i:i his honor. Vanity Fair warns its read rs against the members of l.i Hung Chang’s suite, saying that the bulk of thorn are quite a low class of men who wouldn’ dare to venture into an English or American merchant’s private reception room at Shanghai. The newspapers for some time have contained a mass of matter concerning the visiting . hinaman. !■• is said that the Chinese viceroy, when invLed to d.nner, insists on din ing from his own cuisine before going to the table of his hosts, and he only makes a prettnse of dining when he i. at banquets given to him. Afo r the din ner given to him by Princ Bismarck, at Friedrichsruhe, the German : a.os man express d astonishment, it is said, at the fact that Li Hung Chang did not taste any of the dish s placed before him. whereupon the travel!, r is report ed to have said: "it is no: at my age that one changes one’s habits. If I din d with you I should be forced to partake of fare which I did not like. }fence, I prefer to abstain from eating rather than to be asked to make a Lo ut evt ryrhing not to my t.:s’• Prince Bismarck is repr:.
