And Incidentally Chicago day wl be remembered as the date on which th TrannmlsslHslppl Exposition made good II promise that It would bo the biggest en position since the World's fair. Last nlgt the total attendance paused the record of th total attendance of the Nashville cxpc eltlon with several thousands to spare.

At the end of the fourth month th Omaha record was within 15,000 of tbo tot : Nashville attendance , and yesterday adde thin and thousands more. The total al tendance at the Atlanta exposition , whtc VOB also a six months' show , was 1,2S7,8G nnd that at the Midwinter fair was ale decidedly less than that at Nashville. The radiant sunshine tnat welcomed tt reprc entatlves of the Sunny South was pel tlncntly succeeded by lowering skies ar damp , misty winds when Chlcag came to pay her respects to the enl exposition that has rivaled her own ma ; veious achievement. It was as nearly a com terpart of the brand of weather for whU the Windy City Is famed as nature cou suggest , and the visitors unpacked the mackintoshes and umbrellas and felt entire ! nt home. Tha clouds were draped In th ; slaty sbado of gray that distinguishes tt heavy canopy of mist that a stiff east wlr blows up from Lake Michigan. The ra ! drizzled at Intervals , with the same chll persistence that it falls on Michigan avcnt on several dajs of the 361 , the southea wind was damply suggestive of a Jourm over miles of angry water , and the Chlw gonna had only to close their eyes at Imoglno that they could hear tt muffled pounding ot the Insistent blllov on the sturdy rlprapplng of the Lake Kron Theyi hud every reason to feel at homo an they did.

During the afternoon the clouds sea tcrcd and the drizzling rain of the mor ing was succeeded by occasional bursts Eunshlno that were Mggestlvo of real N braska weather. This gave the visitors : opportunity to see the show under the me favorable conditions , and they made t most of It , They furnished a big crowd the sham battle , and the Cook county dem crats were so thoroughly enthused with t scrappy tactics ot the aboriginal contestar. that they wanted to colonize them for del gntcn to the next county convention.

After an enthusiastic hat clapping had greeted his Introduction , M Dawcs said : Twenty-seven years ago fifty of the leai Ing citizens of Chicago gathered themselv In a little meeting under most'dlstresalt circumstances.

To the minds the great Chicago , the city of the prldo and affection , was numbered nmoi the things of the past. But from nmoi them there rose a young man who amid depressing surroundings lifted his voice 1 remonstrance and In prophecy of the futur "Chicago will live. " said be.
