MEETS MINNESOTA DELEGATION He Is Received With Great Courtesy by the People Along His Route Through the City - Replies to Governor Van Sant. (By Associated Press.) Chicago March 4. - The Chicago which Prince Henry of Prussia saw last night by the glare of many lights was presented to him today by the clear er light of the sun. The welcome which he received last night was repeated and emphasized and he was given further opportunity to enjoy his expressed desire of meeting American citizens at close range. During the day he listened to an ad dress from the Central bund of St. Paul, placed a wreath on the Lincoln monument th Lincoln park and enjoyed a luncheon and receotion at the tC.r mania club. The prince, contrary to expectation, rose early. But he was no more energetic than the crowd. by 8:30 o'clock fully 3.000 people packed the sidewalks in front of the hotel. Pho tographers stood at every vantage point ready to snatch a likeness of the prince when he emerged. It was nearly 10 o'clock before their patience was re awrded. The prince, having two hours at his disposal, concluded that a drive about the city would best please him. Takes Oarriagb Drive. Burnier, the French chauffeur, stood ready to take the prince for a mile-a minute whisk about the boulevards, but the prince decided in favor of a car riage, in order that members of his entourage might also enjoy the bracing air. As the long cavalcade, unheralded, sped through the streets, knots of people rushed from buildings, generally too late to see the prince, whose carriage was near the head of the line. The first stop was made at the magni ficent new building of the Illinois Trust & Savings company's bank. President John B. Mitchell showed the prince through the institution. The Rookery, one of the city's finest office buildings, was next visited. It is but a short block from the bank and the prince dis dained to enter his carriage for the trip. Both at the bank and the Rookery, the stops were not so brief that the news did not have time to fly up and down the street and In both instances. when he came out, crowds awaited him and cheered lustily. Saluted the People. The prince seemed pleased at the dem onstrations and repeatedly touched his cap in courteous answer. In this manner the prince was shown through the retail and wholesale dis trict. A short stop was made at the public library, where the prince said to Mayor Carter Harrison that the city was to be congratulated in pos sessing such magnificent buildings. The prince received Governor Van Sant of Minnesota and the committee from the St. Paul bund In his private parlor, after he had eaten breakfast. The address presented by this commit tee closed as follows:' "Will your royal highness assure his majesty, your brother, that we ever think of our fatherland with the deep est love and that we pray to God t. unite our old fatherland and our new home in the firm bonds of friend ship." Replies to Address. The prince said in response that he would prize the address very highly, as another of the expressions of good wishes that had come to him'everywhere as the ambassador of his brother, the emperor. "I will give it to him and I am sure he will be as grateful to the people of Minnesota as I am personally." By 11 o'clock all who were to accom pany the prince during the day assem bled at the Auditorium and the party entered carriages. In the carriage with the prince were Mayor Harrison, Rear Admiral Evans and ex-Secretary of War Robert T. Lincoln. Besides the regular staff and soecial representatives from Washington, oth ers occupying carriages were Governor Yates, Melville E. Stone, A. J. Sterling, Col. E. G. Halle, Harry G. Selfridge, Honore Palmer, Dr. Walter Wever, the imperial German consul at Chicago, Frank Wenter, William Balkier, Vice Consul Kaerling, Vice Consul Zoeph fel, C. A. Pluamondon and Frank H. Jones. Bob Evans Recognized. In nearly every door and window along the streets where the prince passed, curious faces were to be seen. Hand kerchiefs were waved at him from the windows and the crowd along the streets shouted a greeting. The prince was kept busy touching his cap In response. Rear Admiral Frvans, enthusiastically addressed as "Bob" was also the recipient of con siderable attention. While decorations along the route were not profuse, they were sufficlently in evidence to give the streets a semi-holl day appearance and numerous pictures of the prince in the windows were noted A dense crowd was crushed about the sombre statue of the great emancipA-. tor when the prince and his ento!rage came upon the scene. Crles of "Hoch der kaiser," and Hurrah for Heinrich" were numerous, maklqi~ a thunderous volume of welcoming sound. The prince bowed repeatedly from his carriage.

Places Floral Token. The prince was all gravity as he en. tered the plot of cleanly swept grounds surrounding the monument and laid at the feet of the image of the martyred president a floral token of respect. The whole ceremony lasted but a few mo ments. The prince and his official party quickly re-entered the carriage and started at a brisk trot for the Germania club, transformed for the occasion into a bit of fatherland. A burst of music from a brass band heralded the prince's coming and in s few minutes the prince of last night was "Insur Heinrich" among an en thusiastic congregation of German Americans. The prince, arm in arm with Dr. Wev er, the German consul in Chicago, was met at the threshold of the clubhouse by Gustav F. Fisher, president of the club, who also took his arm, and the following members of the club's recoo tion committee: Gustav Wittme;'r, Harry Rubens, Judge Theodore 13ren tano, Edward G.

At the end of the third, course, President Fischer proposed the health w of the president of the United States, which was drunk standlig. The the band played '''he Star Span gled Banner." The next toast, also pro posed by Mr. Fischer, was to the em peror of Germany. This was drunk like a the first and was followed by th". play 1 ing of "Hell der Im Sigerkranz."
