Ex-Mayor Washburne and Hobart C

ceivlng the salutation of the mayor the In
fanta was driven to tLe Palmer House,
where a suite of rooms had been prepared
for the royal guest of the ci;y. The prin
cess' party id composed as follows: Her
rbyal highness, the Infanta of Spain; his
royal highness Prince Antoine de Bourbon-Orleans;
his excellency, the duke of
Tanianies; marchioness of Aro Hermosa;
Senor Don Pedro .lover y Tovar, private
secretary of the princess.
The Procession to the Hotel.
Ex-Mayor 'Washburne was chosen to go
to Grand Crossing as the representative of
the mayor, while Hobart Chat field-Taylor
is the Spanish consul at this port. As
soon as the welcomes at the station had
been concluded the Infanta and her hus
band and the Spanish minister were con
ducted to a carriage, the mayor also tak
ing a seat in the same conveyance, which
wa dra.-n by four horses gaily capari
soned. The Infanta's suite and others
who had been invited to receive her fol
lowed in other carriages. The party pro
ceeded to the Palmer house by a detour
in order to strike Michigan avenue at
Congress street, and while they were on
the boulevard a royal salute was fired
from the gunboat Michigun.
Streets Swept Clean for the Infanta.
The streets along the 'route had been
especially swept the night before, so that
the line was perfectly clean. The escort
was a couple of troops of United States
cavalry, with an officer and orderly on
either side of the Infanta's carriage. At
the hotel two soldiers were on guard in the
corridor near the apartments of the In
fanta, and she rested there for the balance
of the day. All along the line from the
station to the hotel the streets were lined
with people who received the Infanta with
hearty cheers and waving of handker
chiefs. The princess expressed herself as
highly gratified at her reception, and her
face was wreathed with smiles during the
The Infanta Smokes Cigarettes.
An incident of the trip from New York
was the smoking of cigarettes by the In
fanta on the train. She said it was all a re
velation to her. She marvelled at the
manner in which her slightest want was
attended to. The colored maid, a feature
of the Pennsylvania limited travel, at
tracted her attention. When she expressed
a desire for Spanish cigarettes she was
told that some would be ordered at once
and put on the train at the next stopping.
At Harrisburg the Spanish cigarettes were
ready for her and she smoked several of
them with unfeigned pleasure.
Sighted a Bathing Party.
While the princess was admiring the
scenery along the picturesque Juniata,
after leaving Harrisburg. she uttered an
exclamation of surprise. Those of her
party who were near here looked in the di
rection she was paring and beheld a dozen
young Americans splashing about in the
water in the most unconventional manner.
The princess laughed and called the atten
tion of all her party to the white skinned
urchins. TLe earth belonged to the
princess and when- she expressed a desire
to ride on the engine the train was stopped
and she was given the experience and en
WORLD'S FAIR GATHERIMGS.
An Exhibit That Archbishop Ireland
Would Like to See at the Fair.
There were fair audiences at the temper
ance gatherings in the Art Institute, and
the question of how to down the "demon"
alcohol was discussed in all its bearings.
During an address by Archbishop Ireland
that prelate said: "They tell me that at
the great Columbian exposition there are

this sentiment received hearty applause.
There were interesting discussions at
each meeting. At night there were ad
dresses by Kev. Dr. Albert G. Lawson,
chairman; Rev. Dr. Theodore L. Cuyler,
Mrs. Mary A. Livermore, Kev. Dr. Q. P.
Gifford. This morning the programme
included papers on "The Physical Benefits
of Total Abstinence," li. VV. Richardson,
M. D., F. R. S., London; "The Effect of
Alcoholic Intoxication Upon the Drain,
and Its Relation to the Theories of Hered
ity and Evolution,"A. Forel, M. D., Zurich,
Switzerland; "The Latest Verdict of
Science Concerning Alcohol," X. S. Davis,
M. D., Chicago; "Are Heer and Light

Stronger Distilled Liquors?" J. B. Dunn,
D. D., Boston, Mass. These were followed
by spirited discussions.
Another body of reformers is to have
part of the week, beginning tomorrow
evening. They are those who believe that
oxen, sheep, poultry, and other animals
were not made to be eaten except per
haps by lions, tigers, bears, and other such
beasts. They live on nothing that doesn't
grow out of the ground, and believe that
therein is found the highest attainment of
human happiness and health. They are
the vegetarians aud are of British extrac
tion, having originated in England many
years ago. They will meet for greeting
tomorrow night and get down to the busi
ness of proving that porter house steak is
not good provender Thursday. But thev
will never succeed while the people wil
pay 11.75 for one of those steaks at the
World's fair casino.
If the greater nations of Europe and
American organisations make half as good
a showing ou their fair fete days as little
Denmark did, those days will be the most
attractive and popular features of the
fair. On the stage in Festival hall where
the ceremonies took place were the exposi
tion orchestra and Conductor Thomas, the
Danish singing societies; Commissioner
General Emil Meyer, of Denmark; C.
Michelsen, president of the Danish com
mission; Otto A. Dreier, Danish consul at
Chicago.and many others, while 4,000 Danes
went to the park to participate. There were
Danish music, speeches and a parade. As
a windup the Danish exhibit was opened.
Japan's quaint exhibit in the Fine Arts
building was also formally opened, a re
jeptiou being held for invited guests be
tween 2 and 5 o'clock. After the private
Inspection the room was thrown open to
the public and the invited guests went
over to the Japanese tea house where tea
and lunch were served. The booden or
Phoenix palace on the wooded island, the
building which the Japanese government
is to give to the city of Chicago after the
fair, was also opened.
Paid admissions to the World's fair for
the day were 55,S70.
FIGHT AGAINST THE TRUSTS.
Che Delegates r resent at a Convention
Held at Chicago.
Chicago, June fl. Thirty-four states
are represented in a convention now in ses
sion at Apollo Music hall in this city,
called by Governor Nelson, of Minnesota,
to consider action to be taken by the states
to suppress the trusts. Among the dele
gates are Governor Kelson aud Ignatius
Donnelly, of Minnesota; D. T. Dell, L D.
Harris, J. E. Taylor and E. Whiffer, of
Michigan: Justin Wells, Iowa; W. H.
Wakefield, Kiusas; H. G. Curtis and X.
W. Brower, Iowa: J. H. Drinker, Missouri;
John P. Stelle. James M. Washburne, S.
S. Boyce, W. G. Eggleton, J. M. Thomp
son, Henry D. Lloyd, E. O. Brown and H.
Clendenin, Illinois; General Weaver,
of Iowa, and Edward Rosewater, of
The leaders of the movement are Xelson,
Donnelly, Weaver, and others, laraely
from Populist ranks. Governor Xelson
said that Minnesota is at work
trying to suppress the coal and
lumber trusts of that state, but the
trust operations were so intricate
that the present laws were not efficient
and this convention was to suggest laws
that would do the work. Governor Xel
son was made chairman, and the routine
business rapidly transacted.
Ignatius Donnelly offered resolutions sug
gesting that if all other measures failed
the pro perty of trusts should be confiscat
ed and they denied access to the courts,
and declaring that uo power exists in the
courts, state or national, to override a
state or national law; that the judiciary
has encroached until the power of the
people to legislate is practically at an end,
and that the judiciary is an oligarchy ap
pointed by the plunderers of the people.
The pith of Donnelly's-resolution is that
when a law is passnd the courts cannot de
clare it unconstitutional.
Corey, of Pennsylvania, offered a sarcas
tic resolution, in which he wanted to know
the names of those trusts which had vio
lated the law. Governor Xelson said sar
casm was not wanted, and Gen. Weaver
told Corey that he would furnish him with
all the proof necessary before he got
through with the conference. All the
resolutions were turned over to the com
mittee which met later to prepare one
which would be satisfactory to all the dele
gates. Was Not a Subject for Sympathy.

he was considered crasy. Newspapers ex
