the first day of the Hat racmgsenson glorious
sunshine crowns the tower of the historic
cathedral , but snow lies heavy on the old
Koman hill beside It. Although to-day's
racing events on the Carholmo course were of
minor Importance , comparatively , the town
unsinlrly filled with visitors. Kvcry Inn Is ,
however , engaged to Its very roof for
Wednesday's great race , the Lincolnshire
handicap , for which .Mr. Nayloi's bay horse
Fulmcr , who won the stakes last year , re
mains thu favorite. 'I his son of Galopln
started last year with 100 to 7 against
him. The betting against him to-day Is
11 to 2. Fullerton Is also much favored and
stands at 100 to 15. The latter will bo ridden
by Wood , who is the king jockey of to-day's
events. Moreover , to-day's omens favor
Sir George Chctwynd , owner of Fullerton , as
Ills Grcshublcr , with Wood in the saddle ,
won the Hrst event , the trial stakes , by a
neck , and his Goldsmith , witli the same
Jockey up , was second in the Hatthyany
stakes , which was won by Mr. K Craig's
grey colt , Gloamln. In the lilankncy
plate , a welter handicap , Wood also
won on Mr. Renfrew's Cymbalarla by a head
over Charles \ \ icher's Stourlleld. For the

year gained such n sensational victory in thn
royal hunt cup. Others favor Mr. Roths
child's Middlcthorpc , who ran a dead heat In
the Liverpool spilng cup , and not a few
Lord Bradford's Isabar and Stounhead , the
latter of whom was last victor in the Man
chester November handicap.
The coming grand national on Friday Is ,
of course , a great betting feature. > 1A very
uncertain event that , " said a veteran Jockey
this morning on the course. "Do > o mind
last year when old Joe , who is entered

thing a stranger set down In Ucilln this

contrast between the Hags and crimson
drapery everywhere dlsplajcd and the appearance -
pearanco of the shop windows. These shop
windows , as a rule , are covered with white
hcets. The true Inwardness of the
sheets mean that the windows are
already being decorated with ( lowers
and busts and pictures of the kaiser ,
but will not bo ready for the public eye until
the birthday. So people go along the streets
lifting up the corners of the window covers ,
peeping in for a moment and then hurrying
on as soon as the shopman catches them at

To-day has been the students' day. Kings
are well enough In their way but a city full
of kings would not have taken away public
attention to-day fiom the students. In the
afternoon the ompcror received at the palace
special messengers from sovereigns of oil
parts of the world. Among them were the
Chinese ambassador , Unll-Clilng-Clicng , and
the messenger from the south African lioer
republic. These receptions , together with
the visits of miny newly arrived princes ,
kept the semi-circle court botoro the palauo
gorgeous with court carriages all the after
THE STUDKNTb' PROCESSION.
At 4 o'clock nnicr don Linden was already
blockaded with people. At six o'clock the
whole street within eyesight from the palace
was n compact mass of closely packed hu
manity from curb to curb. Just In front of
the palace the police kept the street free for
the procession. The stops of the opera bouse ,
looking sideways toward the palace , held n
crowd that paid 75 cents a head to stand
there three hours. BeUveeu the opera and
the palace was a grand stand
drnpcd with rod , which was also crowded : '
Below It the pavement nuaier to the palace
was icserved for military officers , who , in
their uniforms with their wives or their
sweethearts on their arms , formed a bright
foreground to the pictures. Opposite the
palace are the massive university buildings ,
forming a hollow square. They wore covered
with evergreens , and had a Hag In the center
of the facades. At 7 the figures suiroundlng
the statue ot Frederick the Great were lighted
up. Then the red lights burned in the open
quadrangle of the university buildings and
announced that the procession had
started. The rod glare reflected fiom the
wings of the buildings and lighted up the
whole street and palace. Glided state car
riages passed rapidly two and fro between
the black masses of people like streams ot
lightning. A mounted student , in all the
bravery of sword , sash and small , round red
cap , dashed up , somewhat outridden though
by his esoott of civalry. Then , after him ,
crmo the commander-ln-chlef , followed
nlovvly by a mounted brass band and a multi
tude of students bearing bo.vitilully painted
society bannrra. There were about
160 banners In all. Then came 3,000 or moro
Undents , each bearing a long torch. They
marcliod up to the palace ami then the line
turned back. The whole block was tilled
with torches , all In motion , liehlnd them
the red glare of the university throw the
whole mass of men with their torches into
brilliant rolluf. An address to the kaiser was
read , or rather shouted , tovtaid the old man ,
who stood looking down trom a win
dow. Then , whllo the marching
continued , suddenly every torch nnd every
bonnnr waved wildly lit the air RS the whole
crowd of students and people joined In a
tremendous shout nt "Hoch , lloch , Hock ! "
and In Uo national hymn. For half an hour
longer the marching continued , vanod by
cheers , waving of toichcs and clashing of
swords. When the emperor , untlred by his
afternoon aprnt In receiving tha foreign
nilnlitenand by an evening spent In dlnlnu
with the visltine prince * , had appeared sov-
cral tlmoi at tha historical wludow , the stu <

After the procession the students continued
heir portion ot the celebration of thu birth-
Jay by holding a great kommers or assembly
fall the college societies In Germany. It was
leld in ono of the largest concert halls ,
which was decorated from floor to celling
ivith every conceivable typo of students'
banners. The main hall held fourteen narrow
ablcs , and at each were about sixty students
ind at least 120 beer glasses. At the raised
able sat six masters of ceicmonlcs , or per-
laps more pioperly , "beer kings , " eacli In
ho full regalia of his society. They had
small , round , cold-embroidered caps , peichcd
on the extreme tops of their heads ; gold
cmbroldeied Jackets , with a scart
of many colors across ono shoulder , and
basket hilled swords at their sides. Below
them sat the students , mainly wealing
words and generally to.'ged out In the full
regimentals of their various societies , but al
ways with their ildlculous little caps. At
the end of each table stood a
singer , n brilliantly dressed stu
dent with drawn swoid. Ills
song was ono of devotion to the kaiser and
vaterland , and was sung with such will that
the banners hanging on the celling began to
swing. The last veiso was suns standIng -
Ing , by the whole corns , with their swoids
ilrawn and clashing in tlmo to

inspiring scene , so much so thatoncbcgan
to wonder whether the kommers had any
thing to do with the lighting quality of the
Germans. The rooms , beside the main hall
and balconies , etc. , wcio all full ot students ,
nnd there were n few ladles and distinguished
people looking on from the boxes.

recjor of the university had made a pa

still vibrating with cheers for the

been drinking three bours , yet , except

S rEAMSiiii1 WERUA , AT SEA , March 18.
( New York Herald Cable-Special to the
Bni : . ] Uegardlng the sailing chances of the
Dauntless and Coronet , which left Now
Yoik a few hours later than the Werra , per
haps you will consider It ot some interest to
the public it 1 give some dates and calcula
tions based upon the direction and force of
the winds on the Atlantic during my cross-
Inir , which have probably been the same as
the yachts experienced , though reckoned
only to about 50 degrees west longitude. On
the day of sallhu off Long Island a stiong
north-northwest wind , with a force ot eight
( equivalent to a velocity of fifty-six ) miles
per hour was blowing , with a lively sea till
midnight , when the wind changed to the
north and maintaining the same
force. Tills wind kept up with little
variety to the 14th Inst. Up to
this time the yachts must have had exceed
ingly L'ood sailing , having been able to carry
all ordinary sails. After the 14th the Wcrra
being in latitude 41 de. < 51 mln the wind
backed to the northwest and later to north-
noithwest , blowing a stiff breo/o. I consider
tills also cave very fair sailing to tbo yachts
nnd they might have ran at their highest rate
of speed. From the 15th Inst at noon , In
about 43 decrees west longitude , I experi
enced variable winds , though all were mostly
from a westerly and southerly direction , with
sunshiny weather and a smooth sea. Should
the yachts havu had the sumo sea , which can <
not be told with certainty ( because
lh' y have been about UCO miles astern ol
the Werra ) , the parties on board
thu yachts would nave had a rest and a chance
to dry their skins , which 1 guess must havt
been very wet durlne the first two days out.
From the 15th to the IRtb , In the so-called
"roaring forties , " moderate weather also prevailed -
vailed , but the wind hauled to a more east
erly quarter on the morning ot the ITth. In
latitude 4G degrees noith and longitude 34
degress wast a southwest wind set In , which
already had been announced by the swell
from that direction on the day before. Ol
course , as th Werra was a long distance
ahead et the rac , U cannot ba said that Uic
yachts have had the same wind as the \Yena ,
but It li oortaln that Uie character of tb (
wcaiker has been favorable to U > a race up tc
wheai judge tue yaclitsmusl
have been in about longitude 53 degrees. The
southeast wind which Is now blowing Is fresh
but no high sea Is running. When the
yachts come Into Its area , the ono which
stands most to the south will have the ad
vantage , for she will have the wind most free
on an cast-northeast course. I believe this
wind will keep on some days longer , as there
Is a low , rising haionicter , and clear weather.
It might be said that according to the workIng -
Ing of the barometer and the change of the
wind no heavy gales are about and the yachts
should have a good chance for getting ahead.
The piobablllty , however , Is that the little
vessels will have In mid-ocean a time of
"sheets close to the winds. " Yours respect-
ully , U. Bussirs ,
Captain Steamship Wcrra.
TUB WIND CHANGE1 ? .
P. S. March 20 , Olf the Li/.anl. As above
lentloned , the southeast wind continued till
l.u Werra reached the Lizard , whuro It
: hauged to a more easterly direction. It Is
ciy likely that its area extends to about 3.5
.cgrces west longitude.

KOMI : , March 20. [ New York Herald
Cable Special to the BEE.J Since Bishop
Itvan preached In St. Salvator three years
ao , no sermon has been heard here in the
Kngllsh langingo approaching In eloquence
that which Bishop Kean delivered In the
church of the Iiish Francisians to-day In
honor of St. Patrick. It Is a little church
w Inch is usually abandoned to brown-robed
monks. The few Irish residents here were
quite a holiday attlio , and while drapery
dangled lazily In the warm sunshine over
the entrance gate and over tno high altar was
the great painting of St. Patrick. The pulpit
and the chapels weio bilghtly huns with
gold and crimson. Kvery scat was filled ,
ch icily with Americans and Irish.
\s the bishop entered ho knelt
In prayer for a few minutes and then ascen
ded the steps of the pulpit. Ho took his text

Chi 1st" lie paused for a moment and then
hu began In a quiet tones. Spiritual works ,
said the preacher , wcio higher than'physlcal ,
soul work was nobler than mere mind woik.
Theconveisionof a soul from a spiritual
death to a spiritual lifo was a greater achieve
ment than laising the dead body. In the
history of the conversion of nations nothing
could bo compared to the Irish. The key to
the whole strange history of poor old Erin
was to bo touud In the biography of St. Pat
Again the bishop paused as though to
gather up his thoughts. They tell us , he
continued , that when his work was nearly
done , when his head had grown white as
snow by nearly one hundred years ot labor ,
God led him to a mountain where , like , yet
unlike , the mother of Jatnes and John , he
piayed that to the end of time Erin might bo
nearest Jesus crucified. And God promised.
Then slightly raising his voice with curious
felicity , the preacher reminded his spell
bound hearers of the glorious history of Erin
during three troubled centuries , when the
Island of saints was the center of Christian
learning , n haven and refuge to nations.
But on her , ho continued , burst at last the
flood of barbaric Invasion , desecrating her
sanctuaries , closing her schools , turning her
pens Into swords , and rending her garments.
Rising to the loftiest heights of rheorltlu ho
exclaimed , "God chose for Ills sons the
greatest empire of the world. God chose for
crucifixion His own Son. Erin was the
mightiest empire seen since the days of
As ho proceeded the preacher's eloquence
grew more Impassioned. There were sobs In
his voice as ho spoku of the sorrow and deso
lation In Ireland , of the approbrlura and con
tempt that has been heaped on her. She had
been buffet'.ed , held up as a fool. She was
a leper oven as one struck by God. Jesus lay
three days in his tomb to Use ataln. ; Erin ,
too , has lain in her tomb for three days , each
one a century of woo , but , ho added ,
continuing the splendid parallel ,
the dawn ot her Easter morn
has come. Slowly but suiely the light goes
on expanding. Already the trumpet of the
Lord proclaims her resurrection : "Arise ,
thou that sleepest. " The Imperial seal of
Citsar is still on Krin , but what can it avail
against the behests of the Most High , against
the justice of mercy and the power of. God. "
In his peroration ho was less happy. Ihat
part of the sermon of the bishop grew a trillo
lurid in praying that freedom , peace , pros
perity and glory might be restored to Ire
land. He exclaimed : "God forbid that she
should ever sigh for tinsel crowns , withering
garlands , gaudy toys In this world. May
her peace bo the peace of God's will and
national fiatcrnity , not selfish patriotism ,
her glory not the glory of Pluto or Mars.
May she stand close to the cross with the
mother Mary and St John , pro-eminent In
loyallty to the end , May her motto bo for
ever. God forbid that she should glory save
In the cross of the Lord. "

coast last night and that no further trouble
this season is anticipated. A largo number
ot emigrants and travelers have been hero
soveial days because ot Inability to get over

From Northern Pacific officials this morn
ing it is learned that all efforts to dislodge
the Ice serge above Mandan have been lutile.
The water Is rising giadually to-day and
sweeping over a laruer area than yesteidav ,
though how much damagu is donu is merely
a nintter of conjecture. Telegraphic com
munication with Mandan Is cut elf com
pletely , so it js impossible to get news dliect.

rosu steadily until the middle of the alter-
noon , when It came to a standstill and Is

ice. Tlio water flooded all thn lower part of
Mandan. but up to last night the sidewalks
Mil not been submerged. A telcinanli line
will be strum ; along the solid Ice to Mandan
to-morrow. The railioad Is now covered
with ice and will have to bo cut out. but it
will not take moro than a day or

300 delayed passenecrs now hero who wish to

jridge , which can bo put In shape for use in
two days. At 10 o'clock to-night the rivet-
Is stationary. Thciovvlllbobiit little delay
In travel from now.on whether the water
subsides or not. People are continually
passing between hero and Mandan In boats.
About the only trouble .at that place
Is the inconvenience occasioned by
Hooded basements and cellars.

WASHINGTON' , MaichSl. Dr. / . T. 8ow-
crit , ono of the most prominent physicians ot
Wellington , In nn interview with a reporter .
to-day , deelaied that theio Is danger that
Piesident Cleveland will not llvo tluough '
his term unices them Is n change In his inodo j
of living. Dr. Sewer ? , six mouths before
Manning's Illness , mndo tliu same prediction '
with regald to the secretary niul advised a
filend to wain him ot his danger. In the In
terview to-day Dr. Sewers said : "It inny be
deemed liiipcrtliient to talk to the president
through n newspaper man , but 1 know of no
other way ol reaching him and those about
him so sutely. You recall my attempts with
friends of Manning and their fruit , and I do
not feel that 1 should take the same clmncca
In tins matter. 1 am personally apprised of
the president's condition , and whllo
It Is In noismiso dangcrouc , It will not
bo long before there will bo reason for alarm.
1'rcsldeut Cleveland Is a large , llcshy man ,
and fdnco ho cnmo to the white house has
pained enormously In llcsh. Now when ho
lived in HulTalo , it was his habit to take long
walks. Since ho came here , however , ho has
abandoned merv toim of exorcise save car-
ihuic riding. That Is ot little or no use ,
with the springs now in use and the smooth
stu'ots for which Washington Is famous. The
president is a man who woiks with his head
a great deal ; Is In fact , an Intense brain
woiker. llu Is , in other words , a plodder ,
and his brain is consequently tilled with an
excess or blood. What Is the resultl1 Ho
works with ills head , eats enorniouslv and
falls tooxciciso his muscles. His blood vc.s-
sols aie weakened , and It Is only a question
ot time when. In a moment of excitement , ho
hnists u blood vessel. lUlI ) > ou at the rate
1'ioMdunt Cleveland Is now living there is
gieiit danger that lie will not llvo throughout
his term. Something should he done to bring
him to realise Ills dancer and take proper
tops to ptovui't the result which will miroly
'iisue ' if ho fails to take proper exercise.
jVhat 1 should recommend would bo the fix-
ng up of a loom in ( lie wlitto housu and set-
Jnir apart of half an hour oveiy day for gym-
: iastlc exercise. That alone , in my opinion ,
will prevent thocatastrophe , the avoidance of
which not only the president but the cuuntty
it largo Is interested in securing.

Ttlcgram to the Bii.J : Ileibert Welsh , BCC-
ctaryof the Indian Klghts' association , who
ivent to Fort .MaiIon , Fla. , to lnvc.tliate tlifj
condition oC the Apaches theic , has returned
and made a report , hast October there were
GOO Indians conliued tlieie. Now there are
447. Forty-four ot the original number were
alien to Carlisle , and twenty-three , prlncl-
tally women and chlldicn. have died In con-
inement. Welsh declares that of the ninety
Halo pri&onois , only tlihty have been uulltyi
of recent misdoing. These were Geroulmo's
men. Many of the others have been lone ;
employed by the coveinwent us scouts , and
some assisted in the capture of Gcronimo ,
but they are confined on the same footing
with Gcronlmo's ho.stllcs. The case of !
Chatto.who lias kept the pledge of peace since
D , and who has established himself on a
limn at Fort Apache , is instanced as a spec
ially cruel one. Last summer Lamai's son
visited him and Induced him to go to Wash
inuton. Cliatto took witli himtotirtcen other
Indians , and at Washington they were prom
ised whatovoi tliey needed. I1 inallytlioy were
started back home , but weio stopped at Fort
icavenworth. Tlieie , Cliatto says. Captain
Dorset told him Miles would uivo.thom a res-
civatlon of sixty squaio miles , tlmt they
would lose none of ( hell propel ty that they
had lett hclilnd. On his now icscivo the
new chief was to receive 550 a month and the
others accoidlngjto their station $ uOandS20 per
montli. In concluding his narrative Cliatto
nalvulv said , " 1 do not think this place looks
iw though It contained sixty square miles. "
Chatto's complaint is that ho has no chance
to wotk. Wehlihas : " 1 have In my.pos-
Ecssion a copy of the document signed by the
seeietaryot war In which Kndlcottstated
that Piosldent Cleveland has assured Cliatto
that so long as ho shall keep lalth with the
government ills intcicsts sliall bo looked
after. Welsh mentions other cases of broken ,
pledges and says the clothing of the Indiana
dining the winter has been totally Insuftici-
ent and unsuitable. Most of them were rags
which they brought with them fiom Ailzoua.
