PRESIDENT LEAVES CHICAliO

at Even Torn Before Leaving.
CHICAGO, Oiit. 10.-At IV.SO tonlKht.
PreMdent McKlnley and members of
his tabinet left Chicago for Kvatwvi le,
Ind., on a sivn-lal train. His departure
with the cheeru of the Immense throng
ringing In his ears brought to a clos
a day of genuinely hard work. In which
the president had scarcely a moment of
l-lsure for himself.
The crowds which giwted him at
every turn were so good natured and so
dlfposed to cheer that the president,
although wearied, expressed hlmlf as
having enjoyed himself.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, premier of Can
ada, and other distinguished Canadi
ans in the president's party were guests
of the Canadian-Americans today at an
Informal luncheon at the Palmer house.
The guests began by drinking the
health of President McKlnley, and Mi
lowed by drinking to Queen Victoria
with appropriate toasts.

NEW YORK, Oct. 10. Hard luck continues to pursue
the big single stickers. On the three days of last week when
the yachts made attempts to sail, th. light fluky winds left
them on the course when the time limit expired. Today a
fog hank prevented them from even leaving their mooring
buoys inside the spit of land which forms Sandy Hook at the
entrance of the lower bay. This was by lar the most dismal
fiasco ot all.
But the weathe. bureau, with its scientific meteorological
methods, hud predicted fair weather wkh freshening winds for
today, and a few clung vainly to the hope that the weather
bureau prognostications would tuni out true for once. Of
course the poor, misguided public went like lambs to the
slaughter. They backed Uncle Sam's weather oracle and put
to sea, but not in such numbers as last week. Many of the
;I sightseers who witnessed the
