Across the alleeod chasm , that never In reality existed , New York and Chicago clasped hands today ami the masters of the land of Columbus united their energies In making the Manhattan celebration at the World's fair a triumph. Forty thousand Now Yorkers had come 1,000 miles to join In the cele bration , . -and they , with the western throngs , made the day one that will bo a feature In the annals of the Columbian exposition. Early this morning the east erners gave ovldcnco of the success which they were to score. On the lawn was ercotcd a reviewing stand from which the guests of honor reviewed the parade. As soon as the gates were open the sightseers began to arrive in crowds , and all day long the weary gatekeepers twisted the turn stiles around and around , swelling the ad missions to a handsome figure. lluffiilo IIIU Opens iho llnll. Buffalo Bill's Wild West show opened the ball at 10 o'clock , when it entered the grounds in its wild glory. The Chicago hussars , under command of. Captain Brand , made a splendid showing , and the County Democracy's marching club was a magnifi cent sight. Then c amo the famous Old Guard , with Its bright uniforms and tower ing shakos , escorted by the First regiment , Illinois National guards. Shortly after 1 o'clock the parade again formed and began its triumphal march through the grounds.

After the parade and the luncheon the principle exercises of the day were held at Festival hall. An Immense audience was present to greet the various speakers. Scenes nt Night. Great ns the day was the evening was greater. Toward nightfall additional crowds began to pour into the park , de termined to sco the Illumination which had been provided for. From every nook and corner blazed gleaming lights of many hues. The Now York state building was all aflame. An elaborate display of fireworks had been prepared and the pyrotechnic dis play was equal to any that has yet been seen at the fair. The procession of floats used on Chlcago'day wended its way before the whlto buildings , ending Its journey at tholako front , where the fireworks were displayed. The crush at this place was terrible , the thousands on the grounds all endeavoring to roach a place of vantage from which they could see the display. Several Doonlo were slightly hurt in the Jam , but no serious casualties were reported. ' AmonR-tho principal features of the fire works were an aerial wonder , produced by the flight of 100 15-Inch shells fired by elec tricity , forming n perfect umbrella In every color of the rainbow ; Bartholdl's great stutuopf "Liberty Enlightening the World , " COxiiO foot ; discharge of three mammoth 00- Inch bombs ] each bomb weighed 100 pounds nnd contained 15,000 stars , the largest over fired ; colossal fire portrait of Mayor Gllroy of Now York.

Fortune smiled on New York's patron saint today , dealing out as bright and Blowing a bit of autumn weather for Man hattan day as oven the most critical could tloslro , and the estimable knlckcrbock- orcd old gentleman took his place In the World's fair history with colors flying. Fully 75,000 Now Yorkers were on the grounds , nnd they , with the ex-New Yorkers who are to bo found in Chicago and the west and the usual contingent of people who nro attracted by big occasions , swelled the ad missions to a llguro that placed Manhattan day In the front rank of the uala days at the fair. fair.For weeks the Now York committee of 250 has boon arranging for today , The transportation for the oxpcctod crowds had been looked after , excursion rates had boon provldoJ and everything possible was denote to make the day a success.

Yesterday afternoon the committee In charge mot Iu the Auditorium for a last con ference , and the finishing touches were put on. The famous Old Guards arrived during the evening and were escorted to the Grand Pacific hotel , with duo pomp and ceremony. All that could bo done had been done , and the success of the day was loft to the fates and the weather. Both were propitious , and as soon as the gates weru opened this -morning the great throng that was to wor ship at the shrine of thu Empire state began to come.

When Mayor Harrison came forward at the conclusion of lr. Brown's prayer to make the address ot welcome bo was re ceived with great applause , in which the Now Yorkers led. Mayor Harrison spoke of the great success of the fair and declared that much of it was duo to the collective and Individual efforts of the sons of Now York , whoso genius was exemplified In every portion nnd all departments of the exposi tion. Ihe homo of tha state of Now York on the grounds had always been the sccno of the most generous hospitality and it was ono of the most popular resorts within the ex position gates. The mayor then alluded pleasantly to the good footing existing be tween the two great cities of the western world and closed with a warm encomium on the wealth and worth of the Empire state. llospntmo by Mayor Ullroy. Mayor Gllroy received an oven moro flat tering welcome than Mayor Harrison , as ho stepped forward to respond to the address of wclcomo In the following words : "It U with n feeling of profound pleasure that I rocjprocato the greetings of Mayor Harrison , nnd express the gratltudo of all New Yorkers at the kind manner in which they were convoyed. Although a Now Yorker of Now Yont , I cannot help express ing the belief that It would bo difilcult , If not Impossible for New York or , any other city on the globe to hnvo exceeded the mag- niflccnco of this fair. It is not alone Chicago cage thas Is to bo congratulated ; but Indeed the the whole civilized world , of which the great exposition is but an epitome. Wo take pride as New Yorkers in being a portion of that great country , the genius of which has made such an exhibition possible. No ono who has visited the great Whlto City can over forget it , and the spcctacla of the court of honor , illuminated with electric lights , with its fountains playing and surrounded by buildings of superb architectural con struction , is a dream of beauty. "Thero is one- sad reflection connected with the White City , and that Is that within a few weeks or months all of these magnlf- icent specimens of architectural art , to gether with'all that they contain of human greatness and civilization , shall have passed away. I cannot help but think that any out lay , however great , that would tend to preserve - servo these magclflcent buildings In mon umental marble would bo an expenditure for which the country would bo repaid an hun dred fold in the liberal education which our people would receive in visiting them , and in the expansion of mind and elevation of thought which they would evolve. We have here the best efforts of mankind from all portions of the globe. Architec ture in Its grandest forms.s the marvelous possibilities of electrical science as sho-.vn by the human voice , transmitted so as to be beard upon a ray of electric light ; the beautiful and 'astonishing pro ductions of manufactures and the liberal arts ; machine power which challenges the admiration of mankind ; the oest products of the fruits of the earth ; In fact , this great exposition , with all its wealth of products of civilization and progress , closes an era and marks an epoch. ' 'It is the transfiguration of mon's'lndustry nnd man's effort. It Is a subject to which It would be impossible for me to dojustice. It is only fitting that I should pay this passing tribute to its greatness and its grandeur. " Horace 1'orter's Tribute. General Horace Porter of Now York , chairman of the citizens' executive com mittee at the World's fair , then stopped for ward nua delivered the following address , which was frequently interrupted by cheers from those who were near enough to hear him , and cheers from these further back who yelled because they thought ho had said something good which they could not hear. "As In ancient times , all roads led to Homo , " said General Porter , "so at the present time all roads lead to Chicago. To day the city of the seaboard comes to lay Its tribute of admiration and respect nt the city of the lake side. Therefore In what 1 shall have to say , my story will bo a 'Talo of Two Cities.

COMPROMISE IS NOW AN ASSURED FACT Repealers Make a Surrender to the Forcas of the Antis. PROVISIONS OF THE PROPOSED MEASURE Another Issao of Bands Will Not Bo In cluded in It ] Toms , SILVER MEN ARE MORE THAN PLEASED H'lillo Not What They Wntitcil It Will Olvo Tlimn Another Chnnco to Mnko n FlRlit Itonubllc.ing Will .Sat lie Consulted. ' WASHINGTON , Oct. 21. The democratic majority has agreed upon n bill. When the committee completed its sittings today thirty-seven democratic senators had pledged themselves to support the measure prepared - pared , and the managers felt assured when the Semite adjourned todav of a sufficient number to bring the list up to forty-one , leaving only two men necessary to insure the passage of the bill. The various senators who are holding out against the bill are said to bo Messrs. Mills and Vllas of the repeal side and Mr. Irby of the silver side. There are senators absent from the city , Messrs. Daniel and White of California , for instance , upon whoso support of the bill they have no doubt. There are others who have not actually attached their names to the pledge , but upon whom the count of the managers Is made , and they further expect to secure the names of all the democratic senators and will then rush the bill through as n party measure and without calling upou the repub licans for aid. Sltuntlnn or the Konubllcani. Most of the republicans hope the demo crats will succeed in this accomplishment , for the bill is ono Which docs not commend itself to either the repeal or the silver fac tion. The repeal men are ploascd only with the clause to limit the silver purchase to n year , while the silver men find In this reason to hope for a further extension of silver pur chases , and think It belter than uncondi tional ropcal In all its provisions , except that proposing a time for coining the pur chases of silver bullion , and although It pro vides for an Increased use of silver as money , this Is by no means what they have desired. The committee recommendation will bo put In the shape of an amendment to the Voorhees bill and will probably receive the support of most of the silver republicans as an amendment , while the bill will , as amended , bo opposed by them. There is a probability against the passage of the bill. While the silver men will vote for the amendment and against the bill , the ultra repeal men will vote against the amenamcnt nnd for the bill. The majority of the ultra repeal republicans would probably accept the bill If It had a bond provision and on account o ! Its omission may oppose it us a party. Democratic Unity Assured. It seems more than probable that the democrats will got the concurrence of their entire party in the senate ; the republicans will make no effort at united action. The silver men , if all parties are pleased , will ac cent the bill. The silvar mnn m.idn n. st.rnnc * . effort to extend the Sherman bill to the next congressional election , but found It im possible to secure approval for a date later than that mentioned. In fact , this date , October , 1804 , is a compromise within a com promise. July 1 , 1891 , and January 1 , 1893. having been suggested. It Is understood that the Treasury depart ment took the position that it would bo Im possible to preserve the gold and silver parity without bonds if the Sherman law should remain in force more than a year longer. It was this argument that induced the silver men to yield us they did to an ex tension until January 1 , 18U5. As at present arranged , the bill will explro in the midst of the next congressional election , and It is going to bo hard to keep it out of the campaign. As It Is , there will probably bo an effortto amend the amend ment by the increase ot the purchasing tlmo a year , and the silver men think it possible they may gain the republican support to put this through , but all circumstances con sidered , this is hardly probable. No Intention ol Giving Up. One ot the advantages which the silver men find In the committee's amendment to the original bill Is that It gives them ground to stand on while the silver fight shall bo waged In the future. They say the silver light has In reality only begun ; that the present bill is only a stipulation for a brief time and that.it will bo prosecuted vigor ously in the regular session.

Mr. McMlllln said It was nolonger [ possible to ignore the financial 'spruits in which the treasury was. The treasury was running be hind moro every rnpntli jlt , had paid out on" the sinking fund forsome tlmo , and it was no secret that the troa'surjr Had been driven to the use of a portion oHho ( $100,000,000 re serve maintained , to .radccni outstanding greenbacks to moot cur ? .

Mr. Dlnglcy of Malno insisted the reason for the failure of the revenues had not been stated truthfully.They were sufficient under the administration of the previous year to meet all the demands made by the ' extravagant legislation , " to'which Mr. Mc Mlllln had adverted. The revenues , in his opinion , had fallen off on account of the gen eral financial and industrial condition of the country. The deficit' had already reached 3SO,000,000 and would roach $50,000,000 , by July 1.1894i Ho maintained that there was absolutely no authority for the secre tary of the treasury to draw on the gold reserve fund to meef .current expenses , and ho warned the housc'that it was a danger ous precedent which jvo ld lead to trouble. If the secretary haa authority to issue bonds it would1 restore confidence. A bill to construct a revenue cutter for the great lakes to replace the Andy John son , which has boon doing service on Lake Michigan for thirty years ' , , led to further financial discussion , tnu'tho morning hour expired before nctloa.wasy had.

The emperor long nio saw that the resigna tion of General titachnu was Imperative , but ho postponed calling for It until the critical period between the Introduction and the adoption of thu army bill. Mow MciiHiire * ol TnxiUlon. Rcparalng the army bills , the Prussian minister of finance , Dr. Mlquol , the author at graduated income tax , Is perfecting his ' scheme for abolishing altogether the existing - ing tax and to reduce by the same amount , namely , 45 marks par 100 kilograms , the duty on imported tobacco. In place of these taxes Dr. Mlquol proposes to Introduce a system of graduated taxation on all manu factured forms of tobacco intended for con sumption within the empire. This system will bo calculated upon the value of raw material in the production , the idea being to throw the chlot burden of the tax on the bettor class of consumers , and the decrease of consumption will bo averted. The foreign ofilco at Berlin is closely watching the outcome , of the interchange of all notes now passing between the Bulga rian and Greek governments regarding the nosslbly hasty action of the Bulgarian po lice , who fired on the crow of u Greek vessel In the Danube. This Incident , trivial in itself , shows a European disturbance might possibly bo caused by a comparatively insig nificant happening. Where thu Attack Occurred. The incident oocurrod some time ago , a little way above Widoniu , a stroTicly forti fied town on the Danube. The captain of the Greek vessel , it appears , was endeavor ing to land on tha Bulgarian shore when ho was challenged by the sergeant referred to , who asked him if ho had a sani tary agent on board. Not receiv ing any reply , the sergeant ordered the Greek vessel to proceed to the lazaretto at Widcnln. The captain of the vessel did not understand , for ho con tinued to apprdach the shore , which caused the sergeant to fire his rlflo In the air. The Greek captain then tried to land on another point , and at this time the Bulgarian fired at him , wounding him in the arm. The Greeks then jumped into the ship's boat and rowed over to the Roumanian shoro. The Greek government has made a de mand for indemnity for the wounding of the captain and also asks for the punishment of the sergeant. The Bulgarian government , aftnr investigating the matter , declined to pay the Indemnity in demand. The result was that the Greek agent afSofia applied to the Russian minister at Bucharest , who has charge of the interests of Greece in Rou- maula and a most interesting scries of diplomatic negotiations is In progress. Illsnuirck Convnlosuing. ' Prince Bismarck continues to make pro- grcss toward a complete recovery of his health , but , contrary to reports , ho docs not intend to go to Vnrsln. A sensation'at Dussoldorf is exciting general attention among citizens of Swiss origin. It appears that Fran Ccvllia Feldmann was arraigned In company with .a prominent Dussoldorf mer chant named Joseph Hommcrllng , charged with misappropriation of half the property of her husband. It seems that Frau Fcldmnan was to bo llicadmlnlstratrlx of the estate of her husband , who was con fined in an asylum for the insane at Grift- burg in 1834 , and that his estate once amounted to 1,000,000 marks. Frau Fold- maim bases her defense on the law of the state of Now York , which , she claims , en titles her to half her husband's property. Frau Fuldmann , It appears , was on intimate terms of friendship with the Dussoldorf merchant , Ilcmmorllng , and his wife , to whom , in 18SS , she transferred full powers to administer the estate of her husband. IIerr llo-minorllng udmlt's having received ' 100,000 marks , which ho de clares ho disposed of according to Frau Fohlmann's instructions and explained that her friendship was merely neighborly , The trial will last several days and promises some Interesting developments , The commercial treaty between Germany and Roumania was signed hero today. A woman from Rasdorf was brought to the Koch hospital today suffering from cholera. JUIINHIK : : < ; KI Jtiliniir Concerning the I'retldent at the I'rimliin MtnUtry.
