Chicago, Oct. 13. Rain and fog with a
decided change in the temperature, the
thermometer dropping several degrees,
put a brake on the attendance at the
World's fair yesterday, but it managed to
reach the very handsome figure of 2TS,!sT;i
in spite of the weather. There was a
scene not down on the programme at the
banquet to the foreigners iu Music hall
early yesterday morning, and it made
I.ord Mayor Sh inks, of Dublin, una per
soua grata, with the officials of the exposi
tion, particularly with Director General
Davis. The banquet lasted to the "wee
small hours" ami t he. spe aking had tired
the guests, who had thinned out until not
more than fifty remained.
Mayor shanks files Some Complaint.
Executive Commissioner Hovey, of Mas
sachusetts, was billed tj speak on "Tiie
Executive Commissioners of the United
States." But long before it came his turn
to sneak he not iced the state of affairs and
left the hall somewhat disgucted. So th6
director general announced that Mr. Ho
vey's place on the i rogramme would be
taken by Mayor Shanks, who had evi
dently come primed, although Lis name,
us he took pains to inform his hosts at the
beginning of his speech, was not on the
list, liis lirst .complaint was that through
an unintentional oversight the name Ire
laud was not included iu ihe toast, "Great
Britain a id Her Colonies."
lro.-d Into American Pol it ion.
The director general felt offended when
the lord major also complaitu-d that Ire
iand was not reoresetited at the fair with
a'buiidiug of her own and courts of her
own. Then lie said: "The next time
don't have the McKinley tariff." Colonel
Davis, who is a staunch Republicau, stood
up and his eyes flashed with indignatioa.
He said to Ids friends around him: "I
will call him down for that." When
Mayor Shanks sat dowu nobody applaud
ed the sentiment aud thedirector general
liitector (ieneral Davis llepliea.
In firm but polite language he informed
the lord mayor that it was no time or
place, a;:d it ill became him as a guest
when asked to respond for au American
commissioner, to criticise American states
men. As to his complaint that Ireland
was not represented as a nation, it was ali
st:rd as well as discourteous to the exposi
tion officers, because only nations recog
nized as such by all the civilized powers
could be represented at the World's fair.
The lord mayor made no reply.
