11. The green flair of Ireland and the stars
and stripes floated Xronv tpi battlements of
Blarney castle on the occasion of opening
the Irish village in the Midway nuisance,
over which the earl and countess of Aber
deen preside. A good crowd was in at
tendance. The center of attraction was
the primitive concert hall where Iord and
Lady Aberdeen addressed the assemblage
on the philanthropic object of the village
enterprise and the commendiible purpose
of the Irish Industrial association. A real
Irish music programme was carried out
in the hall, all the musicians singers, pip
ers and jig dancers beiui; from the "iiuld
sod." The different booths and cottage
were crowded with invited guests sight-seeing,
talking to the Irish men nvA girls ari l
.buying the wares which Liord an. I Iidy
Aberdeen want to find a permanent mar
ket for in this country.
W hat There Was to Sep.
The exhibits consisted of work of Irish
women mostly. There are lac-' work, e;i?
broidery and spinning in the first cottage.
Rare eld Irish lace it is, and the con
noisseurs among the guests were delighted.
In the second cottage t litre isafinedis-
get inside the grounds and that this half
dollar does not pay for everything that is
to be seen inside the fences. It was given
out a short time before the opening of the
exposition that entrance to the Mfdway
Plaisance was free, the cost in that part
of the exposition beijsg for getting into ihj
theatres, etc Well, it costs 50 cents to get
into the Plaisance, but it is the same 50
cents that you pay to get into Jackson
park it takes you right through.
And now for the extras. Director Gen.
eral Davis has made a list, each of which
fore any one has seen it all in the most
cursory way at one admittance he will
have spent 515.00. There are nine of tho
exhibits the prices of which have not been
fixed; but if they go at a quarter apiece it
will add $2.25 to the SlS.fW mentioned be
fore It is, indeed, doubtful if any one.
coulA see them nil in one day, so he would
perhaps have several additional entrance
fees to pay 50 cents each time.
These are the entertainments: Con
stantinople street scene, Cairo street,
Dutch East India village, German village
and town of media-val times, natatorium,
Eskimo village, Moorish palace, panorama
of Bernese Alps, panorama of volcano of
Mount Kilauea, Algerian village.Hungari

play of ancient Irish jewelry. It is uninuo
and of rich design nnd of very good work
manship. The third cottage is devoted to
concert purposes, and there a chorus of
fresh-faced Irish girls under the direction
of Thomas T. Purcell, the well-known
Irish musician, who came over at Ijiuly
Aberdeen's special request, sariir a lot of
tuneful Irish songs, while Miss I. K. Sulli
van played the harp and Pirv-r P.atty un;l
Murphy piped th'.-ir very prettiest.
Turr That Was 'Tit to i:t."
The fourth cottage is filled with rich hog
turf which Innks. so our Irish-Americans
put it, fit to eat. This turf was on sale, as
in fact were all the articles. Then there
were blackthorns galore and plenty of real
and artificial shamrock for such as wanted
it. The sixth pottage was filled with bog oak
ornaments. Galway marlde and beautiful
laces. Visitors who care to go to a little
trouble may kiss the reproduced Blarney
stone, but, as at the original castle, it is i. i
easy feat to reach the mautc rook. A wind
ing stairway leads to the roof of the castle
and from there the adventurous mir be
lowered until their lips press against the
famous slah that has been located in nn
almost inaccessible place on the side of the
Another Midway Attraction Open.
One of the Midway Plaisance novelties
known as the "beauty show" was also
opened to the public. It is the exhibit or

through the dozen American salons al
ready hung and the praise bestowed upon
the works of American painters many of
them prize winners from Paris and Lon
don exhibitions was not undeserved.
There are 2,800 pieces in the United States
art exhibit, far exceeding in number the
contribu tion of France, Great Britain, Ger
many and Italy. Chief Ives, of the fine
arts department, felt proud of the showing
made by American painters in oil and
water colors, engravers, etchers, sculptors
and other artists.

Washington, May 11. The president has
appointed James H. Blount, ot ' Georgia,
envoy extraordinary and minister plenipo
tentiary to the Hawaiian Uland.succeeding
John L. Stevens, resigned.- Blount's com
mission bears the date of Tuesday and it
will be sent him by the next mail for Hon
olulu. The fact that Blount - would he
transferred from the post of special com
missioner to make a report on the advisa
bility of annexing the Hawaiian Islands to
the United States to the position of minis
ter was announced in these dispatches, and
since the announcement was made it has
come to be understood that the change was
decided on at the cabinet meeting Tues
day. A Report Received From lllonnt.
A report from Blount, mailed in Hono
'Julir during the last week in April, came
'to Secretary Gresham Tfuesday morning,"
and was taken by him to the cabinet meet
ing. Owing to the confidential character
of the report its contents are kept secret,
but it is presumed that it contained such
information that the President is determ
ined to lose no time in commissioning a
new minister to suceeed Stevens. The
salary of the position is $7,500. This news
has "leaked" or.t and it is understood
that the fact of Blount's appointment is,
significant of a desire on the part of Presi
dent Cleveland and Secretary Gresham to
emphasize the fact that Blount represents
their views on the Hawaiian problem.
Cleveland Opposed to Annexation.
" They also wish it to be understood that
various Americans, including Minis
ter Stevens and Messrs. Kowan arid Sewell,
who are now in Hawaii working up a sen
timent favorable to annexation, do not in
any sense represent the views of the admin
istration. The appointment of Blount is
made for the purpose of strengthening his
hands in his dealings with the Hawaiians.
It was found that a belief was gaining cur
rency in Hawaii that Sewell and other an
nexationists were really the spokesmen of
the administration. Blount's appointment
will be a distinct notice that this belief is
No Prcfkure on the Hawaiians.
The adniini-tration has strongly disap
proved from the beginning the attempts
being made to win over the Hawaiians to
annexation and has thought that much of
the annexation sentiment in the Sandwich
islands was manufactured. Lately it has
begun to take stronger ground and by in
timations to show that it is unfavorably
inclined toward annexation, though a defi
nite policy will likely not be announced
until after Blount who is proceeding cau
tiously, listening Touch and talking little,
had made a full report.
