Jerusalem. Oct. 31.- The approach of their Germán imperial majesties to the city Saturday was made through triumphal arches, and amid banners, gar'.ands and ever-growing crowds displaying in every way their enthusiasm and delight. The formal entry through the Jaffa ga te was heralded by the roar of guns at the citadel, where the Turkish band played the Germán anthem. From the tower of David Emperor William and Empress Augusta Victoria proceeded on foot, amid wild cheering, to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, where they were received by the Roman Catholic, Greek and Armenian clergy, whose patriarchs presented addresses eulogizing the devotion of Emperor William, who has since conferred decoratlons on the patriarchs. Their majesties then proceeded to the Germán Evangelical church, where the pastor presented an address. At 6 o'clock Saturday evening a reception was held at the Germán consulate, and later there was a general illumination of the city, with a display of fireworks. Yesterday the imperial pair attended service at the Evangelical church in Bethlehem, afterward paying a visit to the Church of the Nativity. The weather yesterday was beautiful and everywhere thegreatest enthusiasm has been displayed. After the excursión to Jericho, Djevad Pasha, former grand vizier, recently Turkish governor of Crete and now attached to the person of Emperor William as a special representative of the sultan, will leave the imperial suite.
