SECOND DAY OF THE FAIR
THE WEATHER WAS BAD BUT
PEOPLE WERE OUT.
Mrs. Potter Palmer Holds a Great Pri
vate Reception Padercwskl Plays
to a Shivering Audience.
Chicago, May 3. It was bleak nnd
drear at the Exposition grounds to day,
but thousands of visitors braved the
raw northeast wind and took in the
greatest show on earth. The question
as to whether interest centered more
in the ornate stn rounding outdoors or
in the millions of attractive objects
within the buildings. All had their
admirers. The bandstand, filled with
clashing cymbals, resounding drums
and piiiing instruments of brass, held
the crowds during the continuance of
the musical number.
The great fountain was not filled,
but all day the Lalustiade was lined
with people admiring the symmetry of
the mermaids, which swam in air in
stead of the water, and in studying the
beautiful allegory worked out in Santa
Maria. From this central point the
procession was very generally over to
the Agricultural building, on to the
Casino and over to Music Hall. The
landscape people have made such a
perfect piece of road in front of the
peristyle and on the bridge crossing
the cast end of the main basin
that people seemed to prefer to do
their walking in that locality. The
whole great court is paved with
red pressed brick and, except at the
gentle rise caused by the bridge, is as
level as a billiard table.
Another compliment was paid to
Columbus and his native country by
the elevation of a gilded model of the
Santa Maria to the highest point on one
of the no feet fiagslaffs between the
terminal station and the Adtninistratii.il
building. A little Austrian boy an
employee of the expert sailors who have
been on salary for a mouth or so to man
the halyards at extremely elevattd
points and make perilous ascents to the
dizzy heights of the Manufactures and
other roofs jwas raised to the top of
the flagstaff on a seat which looked no
larger than .1 lath and did the task.
MRS. PALMER RECEIVES.
A Brilliant Assemblage Gathered at Her
Chicago, May 3, The reception
given by Mrs. Potter Palmer this after
noon was one of the most splendid
private events known in the annals of
Chicago society. Representatives of
the ladies committees from foreign
countries who attended the opening of
the World s Columbian Exposition were
among the guests of honor. The oth'ers
were the Duke and Duchess of Veragua
and their party. Then there were all
the members of the Cabinet, Presiden-1
tial and diplomatic parties still remain
ing in the city; also a few members of
the National Commission. There were
no national decorations within that
palatial home by the lake shore, but
floating above the high northeast tower
without was the gay emblem of liberty,
and from the staff that upheld it rad -ated
long lines bear.ng the flags of all
nations. These bright pennants could
be seen away down the drive, and they
fluttered a mild welcome to the occu
pants of the carriages as they swept up
the curved carriage road and passed
beneath the massive porte cochere.
Superb vases of rare porcelain, con
taining hundreds of snowy lilies, marked
the flat sides of the octagonal rotunda
in which Mrs. Palmer received her
guests. Arrayed in queenly attire, she
greeted them all with a simplicity and
graciousness that was in perfect accord
with her republican birth and training.
A cluster of lilies shone in beautiful
white satin and great trains of pink and
white tulips breathed an odor of spiing
in the morning room. In the dining
room delicate tones of pink were re
peated again and again in a myriad of
blossoms that nodded everywhere.
Only roses were used, and they vied in
hue with the rich flesh tints seen in the
sportive cupids that made merry in the

Paderewsk! Opens Music Hall in an
Chicago, May 3. Ignace J. Pader
ewski consecrated Music Hall at Jack
son Park. He did it yesterday in the
presence of the most unique audience
he ever faced : a collection of people
who shivered and shook in the Arctic
blasts, pent up in the building since the
time when winter was strong. 1 hey
sat with their hats on, men and women;
buttoned tight their coats, drew up
their collars, and ran foot-races in the
corridors to keep their toes warm.
They applauded with might and main
to keep up circulation, and chased
about to find places which the echoes
had not discovered. The folks in the
galleries looked like lone fishermen
with a section apiece.
Mr. Paderewski did not wear gloves
when he was playing. He took them
off just before coming from behind the
stage. He had not yet doffed his
winter clothing, and anyway his vig
rous manner would supply him heal,
which the two red-hot salamanders did
not. The salamanders were part of
the stage decorations, sort of central
figures, about which green bay treis
and azaleas were arranged with more
or less artistic effect. 1 ncy did not
have any stovepipes and the out-ol-town
audience spent the time between
the numbers wondering where the
smoke went and how he combed that
Mr. Paderewski had a magnificent
orchestra to assist him in the consecra
tion an aggregation of artists selected
fiom music centers. It was a terrinc
received by every Steamer.
