CAME AT DAWN.
Adralrl Dowey'a Ship Boachob Now York Harbor. tho Olympia Arrive Two nay Ahead of Scheduled Time TUo Admiral la Aatonlahod by the Prepar ations ITInde for Ilia Kc ceptloii on Shore. New York, Sept. 27. Admiral Dcwoy arrived oil' New York nt dawn Tues tmy nnd the Olympln is now anchored In American water oft' Sandy Hook. The first 'shout of welcome was from the crew of pilot boat No.7. The marine observers alone; the coast had sighted the Olympla in tho first light of the morning. The shore bnttcrica of Fort Hancock, manned by gunners cnlled from breakfast, let loose 17 guns. The flagship replied with 21 and let go her anchors not far from where tuc cup challenger Shamrock is moored. Tho admiral was In his own coun try again, after 2:i months' absence. Ho hntl returned great and ho scarce ly seemed to realize it. The pilot had brought nboard the Sunday papers and a reporter was received by the admiral in a cabin littered by the illustrated Dewey editions, which together made hundreds of pages in blnqk and while nnd in colors, all concerning the ad miral and the preparations made to receive him. "It nlmost saddens me," he said, "to nee what my people are doing for me. The pride and gratification nrc Im mense and I cannot express the appre ciation I feci. I did not know until this rrorning tho splendid welcome my countrymen nrc giving me." The admiral said he felt tired, but he did not look so. His complexion is a clear bronze, his hazel eyes bright, his bearing brisk and rather jaunty. Some deep lines are under his eyes nnd around his mouth, but his voice is clear and pleasant. The admiral's whole presence is that of a man in his fullest powers. Alluding to his arrival two days ahead of the time he was expected, Admiral Dewey said: "I am sorry that I am ahead of the schedule. The Olympia hns been steaming at the uni form rate of ten knots an hour since we left Gibraltar. Several days ago -we knew we would arrive before Thursday unless we moderated our speed or went somewhere out of our course. Capt. tambcrton, Lieut. Brumby and I held a consultation. The propriety of running into Hamp ton Roads or some other port In the south was spoken of, but we conclud ed that we ought not to touch land first anywhere except at New York." The Olympia looks as smart now as n. yacht. The anchors were hardly down before the crew were washing the ship's white sides nnd touching up the stains with paint. The ad miral's first business was to send an .officer ashore with telegrams for the navy department and Mayor Van Wyck announcing the arrival. He was just finishing a middny breakfast when Sir Thomas Lip-ton culled on him. Admiral Dewey had a succession of notable callers. Hear Admiral Samp son with Capt. Chadwiek, his chief of staff, and Lieut. Commander Winsiow came on the Dolphin. Soon after Sampson had gone, Hear Admiral Philip voyaged down the bay in the Narkeeta and paid an official call, nt tended by Commander Kelley. Dr. Sanborn, of the port physician's staff, visited the Olympia and looked at her papers. Eleven of the crew of 375 men have typhoid fever. Some of the cases are convalescent and all of thein are of a mild type. George Bidwell. collector of the port; Postmaster Van Cott and several of the customs officers visited the ad miral and were conducted around the ship by him. All day tugs, sail boats and excursion steamers came up near the Olympia and took a look at her. Everybody who asked was permitted to come on board. About 5 o'clock the admiral returned Sir Thomas Lip ton's visit. The unexpected arrivnl of the Olym pia for a time completely upset tho pjans of the reception committee. Be fore proceeding further in the ar rangements for tho celebration In Dew cy's honor it was decided to consult the great naval hero. All the mem bers of the sub-committee of the re ception committee but two visited the warship and talked over the plans with the admiral. When the pro gramme was explained to him Dewey said it was very satisfactory, and thnt he would remain aboard the Olympia until Friday morning, nnd then would receive tho ollicinl visit of Mayor Van Wyck. New York, Sept. 25. All the general .arrangements for the reception of Ad miral Dewey are completed, and only a few minor details are left to be settled. Veterans of the civil war will par ticipate in the land parade in honor of Dewey,' despite the decision of the ofli cials of the Grand Army ot the Ite pnblie not to order out different posts. New York, Sept. 20. From the bat tery to Harlem the streets show evi dence of the preparation for Dewey's welcome. Nearly every office build ing in the business district on Broad way anil the down-town thoroughfares is being decorated with flags, bunting, shields and streamers and the enthu siasm displayed in the adornment of private "houses is not behind hand. I'ifth avenue, as the mnin route of the parade, presents a busy appearance. Stands are being built all along its length, on the steps, of churches, oili ces and dwellings.

IIIncnH of III Wife Compel Freal- dent I)ln to fllve Up III Trip to Chlonco. City of Mexico, Sept. 20. President Diaz on Monday decided to nbandon his contemplated trip to the United States. The reasons for this decision nrc simply nnd solely tho enfeebled condition of Mrs. Diaz, the wife of the president, who has been for some time confined to her bed. Her illness, while not regard ed ns dangerous, is attended with great suffering, and on that account the pres ident is not willing to leave her. It had been hoped that she would recover suffi ciently to nccompany her husband to a point where she would be free from acute suffering. But there seems no prospect of this being attained, nnd therefore the president decided to abandon the trip which ho has looked forward to with pleasure, but which he felt would be marred by the knowledge that he was leaving his wife behind suf fering from a pninf ul illness. The change of plans hns no political significance whatever. The afternoon papers have no comment, as the news of the abandonment of the trip was not known to them in time. The clerical organ, El Tempo, hns an edltorinl based on the hypothesis that the trip is to be made, and it reiterates its former state ment that a deep-laid political plot un derlies the Invitation of the Chicago committee. Secretary of Foreign Ttelntions Maris cal, whom President Dinz had desig nated as president during his absence, will depart on the 30th inst. in the pres idential cars. He goes as the direct and personal representative of the presi dent. He will be accompanied by his physician. Dr. La Vista; Julio Gogorza, a high official of the foreign relations department; his son-in-law, Thomas Mbran, and his private secretary, Lie Balbino Davalos. So strong was the expectation of Mme. Diaz' improvement that on Mon day the senate again took up the mntter of the proposed visit and increased the amount of the appropriation for the ex penses of the president nnd his party to $150,000 gold. The former appropria tion was $100,000 silver. TO RELEASE PRISONERS. I.ntext Information la (o the Effect That Aciilunlilo Will Illiterate Amcrlonna nt Once. Manila, Sept. 26. Two Englishmen, who had been held by the insurgents since .Tune, hhve arrived at Angeles.

Otis, regarding the Chinese situa tion in the Philippines. He says that the shipload of 700 can be loaded with out any serious interference with mil itary operations. Gen. Otis discusses at considerable length the subject of Chinese in the Philippine islands and the dispatch was referred to the state department, where it was made the sub ject of a conference between Acting Secretary Hill and the Chinese minister. A settlement of the general issue be tween the two governments respecting the admission of the Chinese to the Philippines was not attained through this particular Incident, which was con sidered and disposed of solely on Its own merits. The Chinese will be land ed, but without recognizing the right of the Chinese goverunent to demand this.

' GREAT BRITAIN'S REPLY. rrnnnvnnl Notified Thnt Her Ilrfuanl MnkcN It IJnpIcmx to Continue Ne- KOtlntloiiH on Same Mum. London, Sept. 20. The officials of the foreign office Mondny evening gave out the text of the letter of the secretary of state for the colonics, Mr. Chamber lain, to the British high commissioner in South Africa, Sir Alfred Milncr, dated September 22. The British reply expresses regret that her majesty's of fer, No. 5, of September 8, had been re fused, and says: "The object her majesty's government hntl In view In the recent negotiations hns been stated In a mnnncr which cannot ad mit of misapprehension, viz., to obtnln such substantial nnd Immediate representation for tho outlnnders an will enable them to secure for themselves that fair nnd Just treatment which wns formally promised them In 18S1, and which her majesty In tended to seeuro for them when she granted privileges of self-government to tho Trans vaal. No conditions leas comprehensive than those contained In tho telegram ot September S can be relied on to effect this object. Tho refusal ot the South Africnn government to entertain tho offer thus made, coming as it does after four months of protracted negotiations, themselves tho cllmnx of live years of extended agitation, makes It useless to further pursue the dis cussion on tho lines hitherto followed, nnd the Imperial government Is now compelled to consider the situation afresh nnd formu late Its own proposals for a llnal settlement of the Issues which have been crented In South Africa by tho policy .constantly fol lowed for many years by tho government of South Africa.
