On. .v.o, Oct .3. Irish day Ht the fair,
of which nri't things were expected,
eeeins to have inisseil connections with the
-weatm-r clerk, for it ruined steadily nl!
day, consequently thousands who would
have helped t he lovers of the "old cod" to
linve iimde the day memorable iu attend
ance si lived at home and the total paid ad
missions were only l'T,.-:i, most of whom
were Irishmen and women who were
bound to h there if it "rained pitchforks.1
Considering the weather the day wis a
grand success, ;jud something for the
Celts to le proud of. Saturday wound up
Septemli.r and the mouth itself was a
grand success. The total paid admissions
during the month reached the splendid
total i f 4,iViS,7I3, which is over l,noo,M
more than for August. With such a
fthowini; for September and gnocl weather
the total admissions to the fair should
easily reach the coveted au.omyxiii. The
total admissions up to Siturilny niirht
Were 14.lt; ',ST7, leaving .1 little over .ri,0U),

Karly in the forenoon Cuptain John P.
Itarrefi hoisted an Irish flag on one of the
poles on the Electricity building. He
thought he had permission t )do ho, hut
tiie j.'it--n emblem hadn't flapped in the
damp air many minutes before Frank Mil
lit, d.i ecior of decorations and ollicial Mac
master of the exposition, had the Irish
banner huuied down, confiscated, ami
carried over to his private Mi.:e in the Ad
ministration buildin-. Then the trouble
bei.an Dr. Hornsby. Chief Iiarrett'u a.s
Bistant. rushed into Mr. M diet's oflice and
demanded the return of Ihe Hag as the
private property of Chief IJarrett. He got
it and within teu minutes had it
triumphantly fluttering Jr. 'in the same
flag pole. Meanwhile all the patriotic
Irishmen in Jackson park seemed to have
heard of Mr Millet's "insult to tiie Iri-h
flag." And still Mr. Millet wasn't
through. For the second time he sent his
trusted lieutenant, "Jimmie" Hunt, to
haul down the green cloth. "Jimmie" is
an Irishman himself, mid wore a bin sham
rock from the Irish village, but he obeyed
orders nnd he cut the rope so that the
hoistim; on that HagstatT was at an end.
Lookisl tin- Ili-rtiraU.
Once more I r Hornsby charged on the
Administration building, and he carried
with him this time and ollicial communi
cation from Director General Davis to
Chief Jlarrctt raying there was no objec
tion to rai-ing an Irisn I'.ag Irish day. The
wrath y doctor appealed to the council of
administration. Col. St. Clair looked up
the records and found that neither the
council nor the director general interposed
an objection. Director of Works liurn
bam, as the acting director general, was
Called into the parley, and Mr. Millet was
asked to explain. He said there was no
objection to the Irish Hag being used for
decorative rurposes or. any of the build
ings, but he objected to it being floated
from tiie regular llag poles. He said that
noue hut national Hags, those recognized
and saluted by the I'uited StateB navy,
were hoisted on ti.e 1 xposilion poles. The
Irish Hag ii"t being o recognized, it had
no more ruht on an official Hagstaff than
the banners of Uohemia. Poland, or Scot
land. "Under these circumstances you and
I)r. Hornsby had beitercompromi.se," was
Mr. Iiu: niiam's decision, and a compro
mise was reached whereby Dr. Hornsby
was to extend the flag from a window.
Hut he did'tit, do it. He took the much
rulled-up-and-down banner and unfurled
it from the topmost point of the grand
arch at the south end of the building,
and there it was still when evening came.
Thieve at the Fair.
Thieves have been working in the Rus
sian section in Manufacture building at
Jackson park again. Pnvin Greenwaldt,
a fur dealer from St. Petersburg, made the
discovery that he had been robbed of one
line benve. , six black fox ekins, aud sev
enty sables, toe loss being ?10.0"0. They
had lecn taken out of the chest, he said.
In which he placed them after closing his
exhibit. The chest had Ijecn carefully un
locked and, after being pilfered, closed and
left just as it was before. There was not a
cratch or other sign of any kind to indi
cate that the lock had been tampered with.
This aroused Mr. Green waldt's suspicions,
but he declined to make any accusations
Against whomsoever he may have thought
committed the theft. He says, however,
he thinks the circumstances point strongly
to some one who is well acquainted with
lie llelieves the Attemtanre This Week
Will lie 1,500.0110.
Ciuc.Yuo, Oct. 5. Superintendent
Tucker, of the admissions department,

wounding the convict. By this time every
