"World's Fair Grounds, July 7. About
8 o'clock ttw morning the U. S. S. Michi
gan and revenue cutters Andrew Johnson
and Blake weighed anchor, -and wtth in
vited guests and representatives of the
press steamed northward on the" lake. Fol
lowing Uncle Sam's vessels went twenty
five or thirty craft of twei-y description
THE CARAVEL SANTA MARIA,
that has its habitat in these waters. The
Michigan led, with the Johnson on the
starlxiard ami the Blake on the port quar
ter, the other craft falling in astern in a
double column excursion boats following
the Blake and yachts the Johnson. The
naval parade presented a beautiful sight
as it swiftly passed up the lake.
For tbe Caravels Were Coming.
The caravels those diminutive vessels
that are exact reproductions of the craft
Columbus ventured into the unknown of
the Atlantic ocean 400 years ago were
cominji. In fact they were almost here,
having arrived at Evans! on and there
stopped to wait for the escort, which was
rapidly cleaving the blue-green billows.
A run of less than an hour brought the es
cort to the novel visitors, and a salute of
twenty-one guns was fired by the Mich
igan ami Johnson each. Then the fleet
was moved to the left, the three govern
ment vessels taking posts ahead of the
caravels and the other vessels following in
their rear. This order was preserved in re
turning to the southward, passing to the
westward of the outer harlxr, and so on
until the caravels reached their anchorage
off Jackson park, between the two piers.
Reception at the White City.
Chicago harbor was dressed in its pret
tiest clot hesso far as the ships were con
cerned. Bt&ting was "flylrjg from all
mastheads and the escorting vessels were
radiant with color all that could being
dressed rainbow fashion. Upon casting
anchor off the long pier the caravels were
visited by officers of the direct 'r general's
staff, who scorted Captain Concas and
officers to the Administration building.
The guard of honor was drawn up on the
north terrace of the Agricultural building.
The line of march was from the north
front of Agricultural building, arouDd by
the Peristyle, turning westward along the
south end of Manufacture.-, building,
across the lagoon, then north wird, along
the east Bide of Electricity building, and
turning at its northern con;.T the pro
cession moved down between t he Electric
ity aud Mines building to a stand which
was erected east of the Terminal station.

caravels from the beginning, aud as a
member of the World's fair committee of
the senate did everything he could to se

FIELD TRIALS FOR HARVESTERS.
An Mlnnis Farm Offered for that Purpose
John Boyd Thacher has sent a letter to
Chief Buchanan, of the Agricultural de
partment regarding the tests of harvesting
machinery soon to be made. He said:
"Growing out of the necessity for field
trials in making practical tests of agricul
tural implements this bureau has been
casting about for proper and adequate
land for the purpose. M. V. Dunham,
Esq., of Wayne, Ilia, has generously given
the free use of his land and crop for the ex
amination of these exhibits. His farm is
located thirty-five miles west of the fair
grounds on the Chicago and Northwestern
railroad, and the station is upon his land.
Mr. Dunham suggests and consents to
dates, which, in my opinion are in good
season, the days being subject to change,
of course, should weather or condition of
crops require it.
"I would suggest that any exhibitor may
present at the field for trial either the ma
chine actually exhibited in the agricul
tural department or a similar machine in
quality ami utility if accompanied by a
certificate that it is of the same pattern as
that exhibited." Mr. Buchanan will com
municate with the machine exhibitors in
his place and Mr. Thatcher expects a re
ply in a few days.
The friends and advisers of the duke of
Veragua in this country having learned
that his financial affairs in Spain are in
such a cocdition as to threaten the loss of
his entire estate have decided to raise a con
siderable sum for the lienefit of his family.
Hon. Thomas W. l'almer has consented to
act as chairman of a committee to secure
subscriptions. Letters from Madrid state
that the beautiful residence of the duke in
that city with its entire furniture, many
valuable works of art and the entire li
brary were seized by his creditors while
he was in Chicago as a guest of honor of
the World's fair.
Forty members of the McCarthy Light
Guard, of Little Kock, Ark., have reached
Jackson park and encamped on the west
end of the Plaisanoe. The McCarthy troop
is part of the national guard and has just
come from scenes of triumph at Nashville,
where it won the first prize in the great
interstate drill. The soldiers will encamp
here for ten days and every afternoon will
drill in front of the Arkansas state build
ing. Director General Davis has issued an or
der which will prevent any more foreign
commissioners lecoming insulted by being
arrested for violating rules. He decides
that hereafter foreign commissioners must
be treated with special consideration, and
their badges and passes recognized as giving
them sjiecial privileges. They are exempt
ed from arrest, and any questions concern
ing their rights must be reported to the
director general's office. Paraguay has
uncovered her exhibits.

CARAVELS AT MILWAUKEE.
Little Columbus Ships Receive a
Milwai kee, July 7. The Spanish cara
vels, the Santa Maria, Pinta, and Nina, in
tow of the steambarge Hecla, came .into
the mouth of the. harbor here and were
moored on the south side of the river be
tween Broadway and the Chicago and
Northwestern railroad bridge. Later they
were escorted to the city by the city of
ficials and a large number of representa
tive citizens. The scene along the route
was a novel one. The windows of the
great mercantile and manufacturing estab
lishments lining the river bank and tower
ing up from four to a dozen stories, were
filled with human eyes looking down upon
the procession. When the foreigners
reached the dock at Grand avenue bridge
they were greeted by their national colors,
which draped every building in the vicin
ity. Here the Santa Maria was boarded
by Governor Peck.
A carriage ride was the first entertain
ment to the officers of the vessels. Later
they were served with a magnificent ban
quet at the Hotel Pfister. The crew, con
sisting of fifty-two men, dined at the new
restaurant in the Pabst building.' All day
long the bridge and every available space
were densely packed with sight seers from
all parts of the city and surrounding dis
tricts. Shortly before 5 o'clock prepara
tions were made for departure. Amid the
booming of cannon and screeching and
tooting of 1,000 whistles the stately pro
cession moved slowly out to sea. It is es
timated that fully 50,000 people witnessed
