JOURNEY OF THE COURT. COMMISSARIAT AND SUICIDE. But few foreigners witnessed the passage of the Court on the way to Honan. There has been a great and continual crush at every stopping place, but complete order has prevailed. For eight days after the departure of the Imperial party from Kai-feng-fu the road was thronged with its retinue. At Cheng-te-fu a photograph was taken. Here the soldiers and populace were polite and friendly. At Fang-yin the runners and underlings who pre- ceded the Court devoured all the food prepared for the Emperor, and the commissariat officers, to avoid disgrace, committed suicide. The three hundred cooks engaged at Cheng-te-fu to prepare meals for the Court party secured their pay in advance, and when they found themselves unequal to satisfying the demands of the hungry retinue they decamped taking with them everything they could carry. The difficulty of supplying food has been the main cause of trouble along the entire route. Three Magistrates, it is reported, have already been dismissed in Chi-li on account of this.
