Over 1,400,000 Already Recorded An

City of Chicago Trouble With Musicians
Italy Celebrates Columbus Brilliant
Reception and Banquet.
Chicago, Oct. 12. Another big day at
the fair. Ijast night the turnstiles showed
that 808,775 persons paid their way into the
wonderland 151 t5e White'City. Such at
tendance as this makes the stockholders
feel better still. It does not look as though
anything could prevent the attendance
this week running to over 2,0f0,000. When
all the debts of the corporation had been
paid Tuesday there was about $400,000 in
the treasury. The stockholders, who Rre
all Chicagoans, have $5,559,067 invested
in the exposition, and the city of Chicago
has $.",0O0,00O more. The situation, so far
as the city bond issue is concerned, is just
this: Tbe city of Chicago floated an issue
of $5,000,000 in bonds and the money
raised in this way was practically used in
paying for $5,000,000 of stock in the expo
sition. The bonds will be tmid when they
mature by the tax payers of the city, and
are not a lin in any way on the fair.
City and Others on Same Basis.
The receipts of the expoeition will have
to be divided pro rata between the city and
the ordinary stockholders, and the amount
that the city may receive will lessen the
sum that the taxpayers will have to pay to
retire the bonds. In other words the re
ceipts of the exposition from now on, after
paying the running expenses of the fair
and making a sinking fund for the removal
of the buildings, etc., will be used in the
payment of dividends on $ltl,5tfil,007 of
stock. With reference to the removal of
buildings it is hardly possible that they
will not sell for sutlicietit to pay t hat ex
pense and the cleaning up of the grounds.
so that whatever is cleared above expenses
from now ou will o to stockholders.
More Trouble with Music
The Lie.-enng l and, which was gener
ally known as the Chicago land, at the
xpositiou is not plaviug there any more.
The band was summarily discharged from
further engagements last Saturday by the
secretary of the bureau of music and the
council of administration afterward en
dorsed the action. Contracts were made
at the beginning of the fair for the engage
ment of the Chicago band at .,300 a week.
and for the Cincinnati, or Brand's band of
the same number of musicians at a saving
of $100 a week. This led to trouble be-
ween the two bands, although Conductor
Liesegang claims that his action was based
upon the refusal of the Cincinnati
musicians to comply with certain rules of
the National Musical league.
Why Liesegang Was UUcharged.
When the bureau of music called upon
the several exposition bauds to join in a
scheme for. a union orchestra in place of
the brass instruments Conductor Lease
gang refused to have anything to do with
it and his band was discharged on the
spot. The only explanation he gave was:
"I he Musical union told us not to play
with Brtud's band." The Iimese band
from New York has lieeu engaged to take
the place of the Chicago baud, which was
composed principally of eastern mu.-iciaus
of an unusually high order.

a canopy faced with large American flags
the guests, attired in all manner of
costumes, gorgeous court uniforms and
curious head dresses.proc'eeded up the stair
way to Recital hall, where an informal re
ception was held.
In the banquet hall the grouping of the
tables was as artistic as it was unique.
They were curved and crescent and "X"
shaped, both large and small, the object of
such an arrangement being to avoid any
suggestion of favoritism in the allotment
of seats. The sixteen columns which bor
dered tbe oblong hall were entwined with
cak leaves. Back of the receiving arch
which forms the end of the hall opposite
the maiu entrance were hung garlands
and wreaths and festooES of green dotted
with roses of every hue. Over this display
were hung the flags of every nation whose
representatives were the guests of the
The walls of the gallery were bidden by
the flags of all nations, and over the Im
provised staircase leading from the Ke
cital hall to the banquet hall were draped
the stars and stripes. Thousands of the
choicest roses adorned the tables in every
form known to the florist's art. Majestic
palms reared their spreading leaves from
the gallery steps and the banquetting
floor. The choicest foliage plants from
the Horticultural building were brought
over to make the floral picture one of
splendor. Over the heads of tbe banqueters
were hung special electric designs, which
combined with the flood of color from the
flowers, flags and court uniforms of the
guests, made a picture entrancingly beau
tiful. The hostesses for the directors were Mrs
Higinbotham, Mrs. George R. Davis, Mrs.
Ferd W. Peck, Mrs. Lyman J. Gage, Mrs.
W. P. Baker, aud Mrs. Robert A. Waller.
Many of Chicago's 400 added their cos
tumes, their jewels, and their charming
presence to the joint function. The toast
masters at each side of the hall were Direc
tor General Dayis, President Higinbotham,
ex-Presidents W. P. Baker and Lyman J.
G.ige. While the banquet was intended to
be given exclusively to the foreign com
missioners and American executive of
ficers there were many minor officials of
the fair present.
The s(eechiiiaking was begun by Presi

They Hold Commemoration of the Land-
lug of Columbus in America.
The Italians of Chicago celebrated the
401st anniversary of the landiug of Colum
bus today, which was also Italian day at
the fair. Ever since 1S41 this date has been
celebrated by the Ital an residents of this
city, with the exception of the year of the
fire. Preparations had as usual betn made
to observe the day that year, but the big
conflagration, coming two days before,
burned up everything which had been
gotten up for the event, and the sons of
Italy were f arced to forego the yearly ob
servation of the day.
Italian societies from Milwaukee and
Braidwood and representatives of the so
cieties of Omaha, Kansas City, Detroit
and Cincinnati arrived last night to assist
in the celebratiou. The down-town fea
ture of the day, which was observed as a hol
iday by all of the Italians m the city, was
the" parade. When the order to start was
given this moruiug there were between
4,000 and 5.CM0 people iu line. Several
floats were also built, one of which, the
"Apotheosis of Columbus," was of beauti
ful design uud gotten up without regard
