About the big liner were, gathered crafts .'of every description, crowded with-people anxious to get a glimpse of the celebrated Chinaman. Whistles were'kept going, yachts boomed cannon,.and on some of the tugs fire-crackers .were set off. Coming by Fort Wadsworth, a salute was fired. As the St. Lpuis passed through the warships the flag-ship New York fired a salute of 10 guns, which is the English lord high admiral's official recognition.•• • Gen. Uupor'u Uolcomo. .

A 1 large, force of pol'iee was 071 hand, nnd they had all they could do to restrain the throng. A detachment of tlie Sixth cavalry, U. S.

Green r traveling passenger agent of the Big Four railway, consisting of Mrs. Green and three children, a boy, aged 13, a girl, aged nine, and a little girl of six, were found dead in their home. 019 West Thirty-fourth street. All the little ones were in their beds and the mother lay dead in a doorway with a revolver by her side. The murder or suicide Is supposed 1o have occurred Wednesday "morning, about two o'clock, as at that hour neighbors heard pistol shots near the Green home, but no investigation was made until the non-appearance of the Green family led to an inquiry. Mr. Green left the city a iveuk'ago last Tuesday to go on .1 trip to Salt Lake City witli Mr. Lynch, assistant general passenger agent of the JJig Four. Thursday morning one of the neighbor's children went to the Green home to play with the children. ITe could not find anybody at the house and told his parents. They thought it strange, but did nothing until Friday morning, when 'they were still no signs of life ;.bout the. house. JJepeated knocks at the door failed, to bring a response; then n ladder was raised to a second-story window and one of the neighbors went in, and the dead bodies of the family were found. Mrs. Green had not undressed for-bed and it was evident that she hnd put the children to bed, waiting until they were asleep and then sent them into eternity. The only explanation of the terrible crime is that Mrs. Green was crazy. Mr.. Green is now on his way from Salt Lake. lie always appeared very much devoted to his family. His friends say his home life was especially happy. BIG' RUSSIAN ORDER. •minutes, was conducted to the drawing-, room'by. President Wright and his interpreter and. secretary.'

The other half joined in behind the last cariage, and in this order the march to.the Waldorf hotel was begun. t 'AH along the route large crowds had].gathered. The name of Li Hung Chang.was upon f'very one's lips, and he received, a great ovation, the likes of which was never tendered n foreigner :ip this. country. The streets were jammed all the way with a cheering multitude. . | LI Hung Chung's Vlnit. The mission of Li Hung Chang to the United States is ifc>t of an official character. He has no special mission from • bis emperor, although he bears an autograph letter from his royal highness to President Cleveland, The viceroy is simply taking advantage of his homeward trip after the Moscow coronation ceremonies to see somethingof thewest- ern world. 'Old as he is, however, he is credited with a desire to institute drastic reforms in his native land, and one of the reasons given for his present toqr is his desire to obtain knowledge of the workings' of the governments of the different countries, to get a personal glimmer ;into the inner life of Americans and Europeans and to investigate their modern civilization. His visit to this country will doubtless prove an interesting and instructive one to the great Chinaman, for he frequently has expressed doubts of- the wonderful advance' in science made here. He has just; completed an extensive tour of Germany, France and England, where he was received with honors, none greater "than which could have been bestowed i upon a king. France spent 80,000 Vfrancs in entertaining him, but 'England ; 'has not yet reckoned up the cost.j .iHe may prefer -th(< democratic style, in which he will-be entertained in this country, for, owing to his age, he does jiot -court pomp^pr ceremony, and much-prefers-to be ..left to himself.
