Chicago, Oct.20. Chicago's Auditorium,
the greatest assembly hall of the continent
discovered by Christopher Columbus, was
ablaze with . light and beauty last night.
Ixvely women were there women whose
presence would cre
ate a furor at a
Drawing Room in
presided over by t he
Regina; women in
toilets that would
put to shame
the greatest crea
tions of a AVorth.

Jiistoryot this and other nations; states
men and diplomats, warriors that have
faced the dusky foe in the jungle and tried
conclusions with the enemy on the briny
deep; men of letters and of law, of science
and of art; merchant princes, whose early
days tell stories of toil and poverty, and
who stand today as gigantic monuments of
opportunities afforded to energy and inde
pendence under the flag of a free republic.
Was a Strictly Private Affair.
Patriotism was the motive of the occa
sion and the event, love and exaltation for
native land, the tribute of the 400 to an
event that has dignified the present metrop
olis of the west and future metropolis of
the republic. For the assemblage d'honeur
of last night was essentially a private af
fair. So far as the official programme of
dedication week wns concerned it bad no
recognition leyond the formal indorsement
of the committee on eeremoiiieaof the
World's Columbian exposition, an indorse
ment that carried with it neither financial
liability nor resjKiusibility. A thousand or
more of the leading citizens of Chicago
were the hosts: vxo .hjusand or more of
--- K. HIGIXBOTH Alt
distinguished women and men of the civil
ized nations of the earth the guests. As a
social function as an effervescence of
patriotic fervor on the part of the ruline
element of the Garden City; it was perhaps
me most notaixe event, so Tar as society
was concerned, in her entire history. It
was a night that all the fortunate partici
pants and possibly many of the unfortu
nate non-participants will long remember.
That is, providing they ever forget.
' Enter the City's Chief Guest.
It was a scene of almost indescribable
brilliancy that presented it-self to the vision
of the vice president of the United States
when, at 9: o clock to the moment, lean
ing upon the arm of President H. X.
Higmhotham, of the World's fairdirectory,
he appetired upon the floorof the ball-room.
The brilliant hues of the bunting seemed
c struggle for recognition with the rays
of the electric lights. The steel curtain of
the stage had leen raised, and in its place
half fluttered the Spanish roval banner.
To the right and left, above and below.
were banners upon which were embroidered
the initials of tueen Isabella and her con
sort, the rulers of Siiain in the time of the
great discoverer. In the space between the
boxes and the proscenium arch loomed up a
m.-ussive United States shield. It was s-.sr-tnnunted
by a stand of colors, and sup
ported on the right and left by the flags of
hll the American republics.
Gay with Hunting and Flowers.
To the south on the coi responding panel
was the shield of Spain, surrounded by the
flags of all the nations of the Old World, a
bouquet of nation
al emblems in
which the colors of
Spain and Italy
To the right and
left, before and be
hind, above and
in the air from the
balconies and bid
ing from view the
ness of the marble
pillars, were the
tons w. iobljc stars and stripes
in profusion almost beyond the aritbeme
tician's art of calculation, or guesswork.
Queen Flora also played no insignificant
part in the decoration. There were festoons
of wild smilax running in front of all the
boxes, and running thence along the bal
cony and the gallery proper. Here and
there the green of nature was relieved with
artificial rosettes of red and yellow. Tower
ing banks of palms and ferns supported the
panels to the right and left of the proscen
ium, while a mass of green foliage formed a
centerpiece for the stage, and a rising bank
of ferns and tropical plants hid from view
tbe military band directed by Soosa, of
Marin band renown, that furnished the
music for the grand march.
RECEPTION TO MORTON.
Tbe Function That Opened the Grand Col
It was not until after 9 o'clock that the
doors of the Auditorium were opened and
tbe scores of vehicles in waiting com
menced to empty their occupant into
the rotunda that lay beyond the broad
portals of the entrance. Until tbe arri
val of Vice President Morton the guests
were fain to occudt the seats adjohtfnjr. tlic
noor. The appearance Of Mr." Morton was
recognized by a flutter of feminine ap
parel, but decoram militated against any
demontration of joy and gladness on the
part of tbe sterner sex. I'he vice presi
dent was escorted to a position in the east
ern corner of the hall, and the reception
was at once inaugurated. The guests
passed over the floor in procession, being
first introduced to the managers, then to
the committee of arrangements, next to tbe
patronesses and finally, after running this
gauntlet, to the vice president and distin
Seating the IistingulHhed Guests.
At the conclusion of the reception, and
which continued until nearly 11 o'clock,
the vice president was escorted to the loge
on the immediate right of the stage, and
the remainder of the distinguished guests
followed in thisj order: The members of
President Harrison's cabinet, headed , by
Secretary Foster and Postmaster General
Wanamaker: Speaker Charles F. Crisp and
party, Chief Justice Melville E. Fuller and
party, the associate justices of the supreme
court. Boxes II to M were occupied by
Governors Reynolds, of Delaware, Patti
son of Pennsylvania, Bulkeley of Connecti
on, Russell of Massachusetts, and Brown
of Maryland. Tbe reception committee
held the fort in box X and had as neigh
bors Governors Flower, of New York, Holt
of North Carolina, and Brown of Rhode
Island. Box S had been assigned to ex
President Rutherford B. Hayes, but up to
a late hour this distinguished guest had
failed to put in an apearance.
In the Lady Managers' Box.
There were some dazzling toilets in the
adjoining box which . had leen alio ted to
the board of lady managers, and in which
Mrs. Potter Palmer, president of the board,
was at times conspicuous. The visiting
members of the diplomatic corps, the local
directors and the members of the national
commission was near-by neighbors of the
ladies, and beyond these, twenty-five con
secutively numbered boxes were occupied
by the executives of states previously un
provided for, commencing with Governor
Page, of Vermeil t, and concluding with
Governor Markham, of California. All of
the chief executives were accompanied either
by their staffs or members of their re
On with the Dance.
After the reception considerable time was
occupied by the managers in arranging the
floor for the opening quadrille, and it was
after 11 o'cljck when the strains of the cor
net, violin, and harp summoned the devo
tees of the Terpsichorean art to the center
of the floor to inaugutate a tripping of the
light fantastic toe. Thedancing programme
was long, and the sentiment of the gather
ing was evidently
"Le joy be um-onfined.
I'o sleep till m irn w hen youth and pleasure
And it was well along in the "Wee sma'
hours ayont the twa"" lief ore the revellers
sought their homes and the rest necessary
for a continuance of the festival in other
directions. An elaborate supper was a
feature of the night's entertainment.

Sensation in the Ball Room.
One of the incidents of the lall that
caused considerable excitement early in the
evening was a reiort that Senator John
Sherman hau suffered a stroke of apoplexv.
and that he had been carried from the ball
room in a dying condition. The report so
far as Senator Sherman was concerned was
untrue, and arose from the fact that Hoyt
Sherman, brother of the senator, from Des
Moines, la., did suffer a slight attack of
apoplexy while seated in the gallery of the
lall room. He almost fell from his chair.
He was carried from the ball room to the
room of one of the guests on the lower floor
and medical aid summoned, and it was soon
learned that the attack was not of a serious
nature. Mr. Sherman recovered in half an
hour and returned to the ball room.

she had listened to the abuse of Cleveland
and Democracy as long as she could with
out time being called. - She suddenly land
ed a stinging blow on Mrs. Wilkes' face.
The latter grabbed Mrs. Allen, and for
ten minutes both went at it in regular priza
ring fashion. One or both would have been
seriously injured had not friends inter

and blackened and blood flowed freely.
