Preseiiv- indications ore that when Li Hung Chang arrives iu this country a few weeks hence the embnssador will be entertained magnificently, not alone by the national and state authorities, but by n committee of distinguished citizens, who, because of their past residence in the orient or because of their estimate of the Chinese statesman, are desirous of paying him the profoundcst respect. The importance of this purely civic compliment will be fully appreciated by Li Hung Chang, becnuse he is acquaLutr ed with every member of the committee as it is thus far composed. The committee consists of John E. Ward, minister to China in 1KS-00; :tfr. Scward, who was minister frum 1S75 until 1880; John Russell Young, who was minister from :S82 to 1S36; John L. Cadwaller, who was assistant secretary of state with Mr. Fish, and who visited China thereafter, receiving personal attentions from the viceroy; Edward L. Burlingame, son of Hon. Anson Burlingame, who was minister to China from 1SGO tc 1S07, and thereafter the minister of China to various western powers. Col. Fred D. Grant, who was in China with .his father, will be asked to take port in the work of this committee, and several other numbers of the old mercantile community in China, if, upon inquiry "f the viceroy, it is found that he can remain long enough in New York to take part in a dinner to be given in his honor. The probabilities are that the viceroy will remain in that city but one or two days. His official character as the ambassador of China would necessitate his almost immediate departure for Washington when he lands. Thathe will observe this principle of diplomatic courtesy there can be little doubt, for the Chinese official Is most punctilious. After visiting Washington be may revisit New York, however, and spend a little more time in responding to the desires of .that part of the population which will seek to do him honor. On. his way west, it is said, he will make a stop, in all likelihood, only in Chicago. He will be entertained in San Francisco before he departs for home. NEWELECTRICCONDUITSYSTtM Exhibition of FUn, Which 8eem« FewlMe Given it Rookery. ' A private exhibition of an entirely new electric conduit system was given the other day at the Bookery, at Chicago, at which a large number of steam and- street railway officials were present. Several new features were shown, whereby this system is said to-be more durable, cheaper and cleaner -than steam, overhead trolley, third rail OP any other appliaupa now in use. while. the cost of construction is only one- quarter as much as any other underground system. ., The exhibition was made on a track 70 feet long, whose surface was -an exact representation of street paving. In the center of the track is a slot similar to the regulation cable slot, only the opening is smaller. The wires, both delivery, return and feed, are carried beneath and inside the roil, and pro- "tected from moisture and water by six. inehea.of solid insulation. The current IB delivered to the motor by anew chemical device called switch boxes. These boxes are of solid castings with holes bored through the center, wherein works a plunger with a wheel attached to the end, which extends into the slot conduit. • ''Every motor car carries a .contact Khoe, and there la no .way by .which the ' contact can be broken. One feature of the invention is that tnere is no loss of tlectricity, as in the third rail system. The system could be easily applied to uteam roods, and railroad men are much interested in the exhibition. BICYCLE BAGGAGE CARS. The P«n»«7lT«nl» Company Secure* ft Qevloe to Bold Whteln. E, B. Taylor, superintendent of transportation of the Pennsylvania finea, said the other day 'that he hod' prepared plans for an arrangement whereby bicycles can be .easily carried in cars without inconveniencing the baggage- man.or In any way exposing the wheels to injury" from other baggage falling . on them. A number of clamps are arranged at the top "of the baggage car, ao that -the. -wheels can be hung up so as no* to interfer* in any way with ' MADE A MANIAC BY/SPIR'ltlSM. Prospective Brldo Driven to In«»ntty by F»ke MaDlfc«t«tlon». A curious story of fake spiritism has come to light in New York, and, if the story of the complaint to the police be true, the spook-evoking had Uie effect of making: a. prospective bride a raving- maniac, says the Buffalo Express. Martin Delberger, a cigar-raaker, told the police that his young- aunt, Louisa Goldstein, who was about to be married, went to a certain Mme. Rodling to have her horoscope cast. The Eceness considered a second visit necessary aod told Miss Goldsfteiai that she mnstbrisfr $25 wiUi her. The (jirl went again, but liad only 515. Then, according to Dol- Dergcr's story, Mme. Kodluiff took the girl into a dark room, where two men were concealed. The astrol?ger told Miss Goldstein that she could raise, devils by simply calling for them, and that she \vou3d do more if she fa-iled to come again nnd "bring $20 with her. Then Mme. fiodlhig produoed some kind of a spectacle in-Uie dark, accompanied by queer lights oaid noises. When Louisa reached home &he fell upon the iloor in a fainta.ud afterward told of her c:ipcrience. All night long $hc raved about the devils and in tho morning was a maniac. She was removed to Bellevue hospital and then to the insane hospital at Ward's island. When a detective was sent to Mme. Dodling's house to investigate the woman denied th-at any Ruch girl had been there. Moreover, she denied that she claimed to be » fortune teller at all, but read people's lives from their pa-lnis. To the detectives she showed a lot of astrological rubbish. The records of BeJIevue show that Louisa Goldstein was received there and afterward transferred to Ward's island. HOMING PIGEONSFORTHE NAVY I*r«e Bomber of Blrti B«lnf Timln«« by Heat. Barlow. A cote of homing pigeons has been recently established at tne New York navy yard. The birds will be sent abroad vessels going to sea, and will be used to carry messages from the ships to the naval stations. Lieut C. H..JIar- low has been detailed to train, the bird*. About three weeks ago-a large coop -wa« erected on t£e cob deck, and about 60 birds, mostly young, were placed ia it. They came from all. parts .of the country,, and were confined to the coop for a •weekBaiter"Iheii .arrival, ' Tie trap .doors of-^he coop,; through which tiio ? biids.nntist" enter, -are .connected by- ~ means of electrical arnuigeinereis with' ~ the .receiving :nhip Vermont., When a ' pigeon alights on the door a connection is made with the ship and a beU is rung, giving- notice of the bird's arrival. Every day during the last two weeks Lieut. Barlow boa taken some of the birds and given, them a short flight. They were first taken to th» bridge and liberated.. They all returned. Last Tuesday seven birdm were taken to the New York pier of the bridge «nd «et f«se. They all returned within on hour. So far the trials have ehown that ttoo birds hav» leafned to find th«dr way back t» their home, Lieut. Harlow ho» had charge of the cotes at Key West, Fla., Newport, R. L, Norfolk, Va., and Mare Island, Cal. With the exception of th* cote at the naval academy the one. at tKe Brooklyn navy yard is the largest.

They went directly to the house of Mrs. William Post, on Bellevue avenue, whose guest» they will be for the next two week* at least. Where they wiH visit during the remainder of their stay there, which will last all the season, has not been definitely decided upon, olthough they have invitations enough to extend their visit several years. One thing is certain t they will not be the guests of,J..J. Van .Alcn, as was commonly reported. They" were to have visited Mr. Van Alen, ' but a change has been ma^do in their plans. The duchess* reception of Mrs. O H. Belmohit, or vice versa, as somo of the less charitable of Mrs. Belmont • enemies put it, is what is caus.ng • croodly amount. of conjecture during the very dull preliminary season, and the announcement that Mr. % an Alen will not entertain the duchess has given additional interest to the situation. One thing is certain, the presence of the duchess nnd her son will certainly add to the spiciness of this season and will go far toward •redeeming^hat promises to be a rather dull summer. .. .
