After the large attendance of the week ,
It was not expected that there would be
great crowds upon the exposition grounds
Sunday , but the people were Ihere jusl tin
8ame. During the forenoon while the 30-
ccnt rate of admission prevailed , there was
< i larger Sunday morning attendance than
usual. The people who went out early were
mostly from Chicago , They were members
of the party that came Saturday and as on
that day moat ot their time was given up
to taking part In the cxercUc-a and func
tions put on for their cntcrtalumcnl , they
had not had an opportunity of seeing the
exposition. Consequently they went to the
giounds In the morning and spent the fore
noon admiring the beauty of the buildings
and the grounds.
During Ihe aflcruoon Ihe people flocked lethe
the grounds and all of the slrcet cara were
loaded until even standing room was at a
premium There were innny strangers In
the crowd , people who came In Saturday
night and others who came during the early
I > art of the day , Intending to stas during
the week to see the exposition during the
daytlmo and the Ak-Sar-Bcn para'.es at
night. For these people Ihe live slock that
was being Installed In the barns and tht
Indians on the North tract were the prin
cipal utlractlons , though they did not Ig
nore the Main court and the big building ! )
The city people found th.it the exposition
possessed great ntlraclion for Ihem and
during Iho afternoon and evening thc'j were
out In largo numbers. Early In the season
few of the city people visited the exposition
BundajB , but during Iho lasl few weeks
they have made It a Sunday afternoon re-
eorl until now when It has become Ihe
( proper Ihlng to bo there on every day of
rest.The month of Seplember was the record
breaker so far as exposition attendance was
concerned , the records showing that 593,163
people passed the gates during the thlrly
days of that month , while during August ,
which was the next biggest month , the at-
iemlance was 474,177. The biggest week
flurlng the exposition was that of Septem
ber 17-24 , when the aggregate attendance
vas 189,616 , which Included Woodmeii day ,
when there were 62,726 people upon the
This week Is expected to be a record
breaker and It la believed by many that
before next Sunday the atlendance will
como very clouo to touching the 2,000,000
mark. The week Is punctured with star
events , which the exposition management
contends ought to bring thousands of stran
gers to the city every day Of course the
big features of the week are the Ak-Sar-
Dcn parades and the court ball , which will
monopollro Tuesday , Thursday and Friday
evenings In addition to these features ,
which have calned national prominence ,
there nrc a number of special days at the
exposition , all of which ought to draw good
olzed crowds.
Tuesday Is Michigan day , Wednesda )
1'cnnsylvanla and Ohio flay , Friday New
Jersey , P. E. O. and Knox college day and
Saturday Is Now York , Twin City and Good
lloads day. None of these special days are
expected to bring such crowds as came on
Iov"ft day , but It Is known that upon several
of the occasions large excursions will be
run from a distance and In addlllon lo this
many people from nearby arc expected to
come In to meet relatives and old time
AaMo from the features heretofore men
tioned , the live stock show opens today ,
and , as the list of entries Is the largest
In tbo history of the United States , It la
believed that this feature ot the exposition
will bring thousands of visitors who other
wise would not come at this time.

About all of the exhibitors In the Horticulture
ticulture building received fruit yesterday
and Instead of spending the day resting they
were busily engaged from morning until
night putting their exhibits In nhape for the
Inupcctlon of Iho throngs that v/lll coma
Nearly a carload of stuff came In for the
Nebraska exhibit. A lot of this went uion
the tables and the balance Into cold stor
age , where It will remain until the last
days of the month , when H Is proposed to
put on a Nebraska exhibit that will exceed
any heretofore seen. The fruit put In place
yesterday Included peaches , as fine as were
ever seen , great red apples and any quan
tity of pears.
Superintendent Courtney , In charge of the
Oregon exhibit , who , for the past week has
been considerably annoyed over the failure
o' his people at home to send on fruit , re
ceived a large consignment of orchard prod
ucts , Including a dozen varieties of pears ,
three of peaches , eleven of apples , four ot
plums and two of crab apples The fruit
came In In first class condition aud Is lu
quantities sufficient to fill the tables.
The fruit Is nol coming lu from Colorado
as rapidly as Superintendents Lane and
Travert desire , but there Is a promise that
thcro will be an abundant supply for next
week , when the big crowds are expected.
estcrday a quantity came on from Garfield -
field county. It Included apples , peaches ,
pears and the Tokay grapes The apples
wcro fine specimens , weighing from one
pound to ono and a-half pounds each. They
wcro raised at an altitude of 6,000 feet ,
Otcro counly , down In the eastern foot
hills , which Is the home of Senator Swlnk ,
sent In a small quantity of peaches , pears
and grapes. The fruit Is fine , but more Is
Douglao county la gelling In shape to
make a great display this week. Superin
tendent Walker spent the greater portion
ot last week out In the country and while
thcro worked up a great deal of enthusiasm
among the grape growers. They have prom-
Iscd to send tn their fruit In quantities
sufficient to keep tbo tables loaded until the
close of the exposition.
The largest apple In the Horticulture
building Is being exhibited In the Iowa
department. It weighs twenly-four ounces
and Is so large that were It not for the
color might easily be mistaken for a
pumpkin. Besides this huge apple there arc
many others that are record breakers when
It comes to olio mailer of size. The condi
tion of the Iowa exhibit has Improved ma
terially since the new superintendent took
hold. The arrangement of the fruit Is bet
ter and the supply pfaccd upon the tablet )
is much greater.
The Lcn Angeles exhibit Is beginning
to show samples ot the fall fruit crop
raised In southern California and while the
quantity Is not largo the specimens are
very fine. Including grapes , pears , apples
and a number of the varieties of the semitropical -
tropical fruit raised down In that portion
of the country.
Missouri's red apples are more In evt-
denco than ever before and the tables than
early In the season were loaded with berries
and peaches are now covered with the ap
ples. They are' pronounced very fine for
this year and are reported to have been
talsed In quite an abundance. In addition
to the apples Superintendent Nelson Is showIng -
Ing some fiuo grapes and pears.

Ing iinlll , late at night , entile , horses , hogs
and sheep wcro being received and taken
away to the barns , where they will bo
housed until the close of the live stock show
that opens today. Yesterday and last night
100 cars of stock came In and half as many
moro are due to arrive "today. "
Whtlo the live stock show opens today , the
exhibits will not bo fully ready for Inspec
tion bcforei tomorrow , as most of the time
today will bo consumed In locating the en
tries , putting the stalls In shape nnd groomIng -
Ing the animals after their long Journey In
the cars. The stock that 1ms arrived Is the
best that bos ever been seen In the west
and the entries are more numerous than
even at the World's fair , which was the
lecord breaker until now.
Last night In speaking ot 4ho live stock
show Superintendent Dlnsmoro said : "I am
satisfied thai It will be yeais and perhaps
centuries before there will be another such
exhibition ot flno animals. I am confident
th&'t never In the history of the counlry
were there such a lot of cattle , tdiecp and
hogs brought together. I have been In the
llvo stock business all my life nnd have at
tended all of the fairs during the last twenty
jears , but at no time have I been such a lot
! of animals. This Is duo , I think , to the
fact that four-fifths ot the cattle and sheep
o ot the United Stales nro raised In the west ,
Hence R IB not such a difficult matter to get
thu animals here.
"Tho simp arc the best ever exhibited In
any counlry and Ihere will bo a ring of
Herefords that will be world-beaters. All
of the cattle are good and I feel confident
that our live stock show will be a success
In every particular. "

NEW YORK , Oct. 2. General William R.
Shorter arrived In this city today from Mon-
tauk Point. Ho will goto Governor's Island
tomorrow morning to take command of the
Department of thu East , to which ho had
been assigned. He was accompanied by
Major J. D. Mlley , his aide. When asked
If he expected to remain long In command
of > tlie Department of the East , General
Shatter said :
"I expect lo remain In charge of the De
partment of the East until General Wesley
Merrltt arrives from Manila. On his arrival
I expect ho will assume command of the
department and I will return to the Pacific
coast and re-assumo charge of the Depart
ment of the Pacific. "
When General Shatter was asked If he
had been summoned to testify before the
commission appointed to Investigate army
mailer , ho said "I have not jet been or
dered to appear before the commission. I
have nothing to say of Importance , but If I
am wanted I shall certainly respond to my
notification. "
General Shatter being asked If ho thought
the present army was held In readiness
without mustering out any more soldiers ,
for the purpose of awalllng the decision of
the Paris council , he said. "There are not
enough soldiers now to garrison all Ihe
posts. There Is need of 100,000 soldiers for
that purpose. I do nol know what the In-
lenllou of Iho War department is. "
Concerning Ihe controversy between Gen
eral Miles and Iho War department , he said :
"I have no statement to make , and 1 have
nothing to complain about. I did my duty
as I thought beet and tried to do it faith
fully for the best Interests of all. It will be
time enough to make statements when my
superiors complain and call me to account.
There Is no use- stirring up matters. "

DENVER. Oct. 2. A special to the News
from Colorado Springs says great clouds of
smoke have hung over the mountains south
of Pike's I'eak and fierce flames have been
seen to shoot up frequently. It ( s reported
that Immense forest flrcs are raging on
the range , and they nro gradually working
their way to Cripple Creek. H Is believed
that the heat from these fires caused the
high winds here during yesterday's fire
which formed such a strong opposing force
igalnst the efforts of those who were fightIng -
Ing the flames.

but many have received sev-"ie Injuries.
DENVER , Oct. 2. Snow and rain have
checked the progress of the forest flrcs on
the main ranges In Colorado , and It Is
thought the further destruction of timber
Is checked. The temperature here has fallen
perceptibly and dispatches from the mount
ain towns Indicate a similar fortunate
change. At present nothing like a correct
estimate of damage done can be given , and
It will bo days before a correct estimate of
the loss can bo made.

SAVANNAH , Ga. , Get , 2. For eighteen
hours from 3 o'clock this morning until G
o clock tonight Savannah has been tn the
grasp of a West Indl.au cyclnno During the
time the wind blew steadily from fifty to
seventy miles an hour. While the city es
caped with comparatively little damage , the
loss of property among the sea Islands of
Georgia and South Carolina coasts Is be
lieved to be heavy For miles In every di
rection around Savannah the lowlands along
Iho rivers are submerged Only one fatal-
lly has so far been reported Ihe drown
ing of a negro whllo attempting to reach the
land from a small Island , near Thunderboldt.
Hut heavy loss of life Is feared on the South
Carolina sea Islands , where such fearful loss
of life occurred during the great tidal storm
of Ib93. The condlllons are now similar.
For clghl miles south of Savannah the en
tire country Is a lake. At noon the water
was eight feet above highest tide. Driven
on shore by the northeast storm It filled up
the Islands , swept over banks , carried away
the remnant of the rice crop that was left
by the August storm and had not been gath
ered , and wiped out other crops. The lobs
to rice growers alone will bo from $50,000 to
$75,000. Of the entire rice crop along the
Savannah river , valued at $250,000 , all but
about 15 per cent was lost In this and the
preceding storm.
The damage shipping Is considerable.
The extent to which the railroads Buffered is
not fully known. The naval stoics and cot
ton and lumber yards of thu riant system
are submerged and the track * of the Central
rallioad of Georgia and Georgia & Alabama
railroad around the city mo covered. On
Hutchlnson's island , opposite- Savannah , and
separating the city from the South Caiollna
shore 'there ' were many negro families res
cued by boats from the revenue steamers
Tjbeo and Boutwell.
CHARLESTON , S. C. , Oct. 2. During the
day thu wind reached a velocity of sixty-
two miles and the tide rose two and a half
feet above normal. Several streets In the
city were submerged , but traffic was not
Interrupted. A dispatch from Georgetown
says the storm In that section was verv HO-
vere , the lowlands being under water and
destruction In the fields bqing widespread.

Cablegram Special Telegram ) General
Merrltt , accompanied by Majors Strother ,
Halo , Captain Molt and Private Secretary
Howcll , arrived at Marseilles at G o'clock
this morning on the Ponlnsular and Oriental
mall boat Arcadia , which they Joined at
Colombo , Ccjlon , on the 16th of S < .ptembci.
A special correspondent met the United
Stales commnmler-ln-clilef of the Philip
pines on board. General Merrill looked rosy
and cheerful , and was smoking a long
Manila cheroot and clothed lu fatigue dress.
Hu eald :
"I am going to Paris ns the military ad
viser of the peace commission. I can't say
how long the proceedings will last"
"What Is the condition of affairs In the
Philippines ? "
"When I left the sltuallon had decidedly
Improved , I don't anticipate any ncrlous
difficulty there with the Insurgent leaders.
Hie measures taken by our government at
the request of Admiral Dewey and mvsclf
are ample for the purposes rcqulrc'd. "
"What opinion have you formed of Agul-
"Ho Is a man about whom opinions In
the Philippines dlfier. Some think him
bright and well meaning , whllo others say
ho Is Intractable personally , but he Is amen
able to Rome extent lo nd\ liters whodu coun

to be gelling on fairly well. You must re

manj yearn of struggle In a position of un
expected Influence and has naturally become.
In Hated wllh a sense of his own importance.
Ho may be difficult to deal with unk s his
advisers use their Influence discreetj. ! "
"Docs Admiral Dewey Eharo vour vlcwa
of Agulnaldo ? "
"I cannot speak for Admiral Dowey. I
oxprcts my own opinion only , though 4
have no reason to suppose Dewey would dis
approve what I have said. "
"Do you consider the Insurgents fit for
self-government ? "
Ilurill } Fitted for Helf-tlot eminent.
"I doubt If they are nt the present time.
Their leaders are very Intelligent rnd much
more fitted for self-government as for as I
can judge , than Ihe Cuban Insurgent lead
ers The Philippines people , too , are rela
tively better off and better off absolutely
limn Ihought lo be , judged by any of our
standards. I think If they find the Spanish
government Is not to be retained thc-y will
bo perfectly amicable to the government
of what nowcr Is to be established The
permanent forces In the Philippines may bo
relied upon to support a stable government.
The people want peace. They are tired ot
disturbance. They desire to set to worts
to develop the undoubtedly great resources
of the Iflands , "
"Do jou consider annexation of all the
Islands or Luzon only or merely the rslab-
llshmcnt of a naval base at Manila the
best policy In view of your knowledge of
all the circumstances ? "
"That Is a big question to ask and one
I cannot possibly answer until I nm asked
It by the members of the peace commis
sion. To answer It In anticipation would
bo unbecoming' . I don't deny that It Is a
grave problem. "
"Did you consult Dewcy about the aclvlco
to be tendered to the peace commission
lespe-ctlng the future of Ihe Philippines ? "
"Dowoy and myself were of course In con
stant communication , I can speak for him
If the peace commission require me to do
so. "
Merrill's reticence on Dowey's attlludo
was Immovable. He lurned Ihe subject by
saying : "Wo had a very flue voyage and
agreeable company , particularly from Egypt ,
where several British officers who look part
In the baltlc of Omdurman joined us , Wo
found plenty to talk about In our respective
experiences. TheEo Brlllsh ofllceiH are
