THE MIDWINTER EXPOSITION.
California Midwinter Interna- )
tional Exposition. Department
op Publicity and Promotion. J
Weekly Circular Letter No. 10.
It has been definitely decided that the
official ceremonial opening of the Cali
fornia Midwinter International Exposi
tion shall take place on Saturday, Jan.
27. This decision has been reached after
a careful consideration of all the cir
cumstances and there is full assurance
on the part of those who are in charge
of the preparations that everything will
be in readiness at that time. The great
fire at the Columbian Exposition on the
night of Jan. 8 did not damage the ex
hibits intended for transfer to San Fran
cisco, except that a few of the cases ia
which they were packed were pretty
well drenched with water. Luckily,
however, the contents of the cases were
not injured, and, as a matter of fact,
such a very small proportion of the Mid
winter display remained unshipped, at
the time of the fire that the delay will
not be aggravated on its account. Be
fore this letter is read the last carload of
exhibits will have left Chicago for San
Francisco, and before that time also, the
scores of other carloads which are now
on the way to San Francisco will have
been unloaded in the -Sunset City and
placed in position in the different build
ings in which they have been assigned a
These buildings are beginning to at
tract from visitors the praise they justly
merit. Their rapid growth was but one
subject of wonder in the progress of this
great enterprise. The arrangement of
the vast number of exhibits with which
their interiors are to be embellished is,
of course, another wonderful operation,
but meanwhile the development of the
Ideas of the architects and the develop
ment at the same time of the general
schema of color which is being worked
out in all the buildings comprises ' still
another field for wonder and admiration.
Charles Graham, the well known artist,
is director of color at this Midwinter
Exposition, and he is working out in
this connection one of the prettiest pic
tures that the world has ever seen, with
a group of architectural palaces set in a
frame of evergreen foliage and against
the background of dark hills and sunny
California sky. ." Pretty as a picture " is
the first comment that comes from the
lips of visitors. " Wonderful to behold "
will be the inevitable sequel to the orig
The concessional " features, : having
Blade haste to get ready for Midwinter
ay-making, will all be ready by the
87th, unless there may be a single excep
tion in the case of the great electrio
tower, work on which can scarcely be
completed inside of three or four weeks.
The machinery plant which, of course,
includes the electric lighting arrange
ments, will be all in readiness by the
day set and will be utilized on a general
scale for the first time on that occasion.
The only previous occasion when the
street decorations of San Francisco ap
proached the grandeur which will be at
tained on Jan. 27 was when President
Harrison paid a visit to the Pacific
Coast, but the- arrangements already
made are emphatically in evidence of an
Intention on the part of the citizens of
San Francisco to outdo every effort they
have made in this line. , It is part of the
plan of the Exposition management that
there shall be a grand street parade
through the principal thoroughfares of
the city, and there is already no little
controversy over the line of march. If
the wishes of the citizens were to be ac
ceded to, the procession would have to
move through every street and the Ex
position grounds would never be reached..
A happy compromise will undoubtedly
be effected, however, and public and pri
vate buildings on the route of the pro
cession will be a blaze of bunting and a
sea of color.
Governor Markham will declare the
day a legal holiday. Mayor Ellert will
issue a proclamation closing all munici
pal offices, as far as possible, and calling
upon the business men of the city to
close their stores. The National Guard
will turn out in full force, and every
civic and fraternal society in the oity
will participate in the'parade. There
will be more bands of music than have
ever been seen in a San Francisco street
parade, and if there is not a bigger turn
out of citizens, in the city and at the
Exposition grounds as well, than has
ever been called forth by any demonstra
tion on the Pacific Coast, the expecta-

judged the temper of the community

The official opening ceremonies will
take place on the grand stand which is
now being erected for that purpose, and
for utilization afterward in connection
with athletic sports on the Recreation
Grounds. This stand will accommodate
7,000 people and the populace can be ac
commodated on the greensward in front
of it to the number of 100,000.
There will be short addresses by Gov-
erjor Markhaia, Mayor Ellert and Di
rector uenerai de Xoung. Mrs. de
Young will press the button that shall
set the machinery in motion. The ora
tion of the day will be delivered by Gen
eral W. H. L. Barnes, the orator par
excellence or the Pacific Coost, and the
exercises will conclude with a rendition
ef "America," played by the united
bands of the Exposition, in which the
voices of the entire assemblage will jein,
and to which there will be a great gun
accompaniment from the throats of a
battery of artillery stationed upon the
Exposition grounds. These are the sen-
rid plans, for IhjL-O&oial oneniast oacs-
monies. It is expected that the crowd
in attendance on that occasion will more
than equal that which witnessed the
ceremony of breaking grounds, when
fully 75,000 people gathered on the bit
of wilderness where, in four short
months, a veritable oity of palaces has
been created. . -

holding in his right hand a lighted torch,

Senators condemn the design, and some
other figure will probably be substi
tuted. Chairman Cummings of the Naval
Committee is preparing a report on Hol
man's resolution calling for an investiga
tion of the system of awarding premi

the Indians require it certain' amounts
shall be paid annually, but in no case
more than $20,000 in any one year. The
sum paid for this land is about $3.62)

land shall be opened to settlers is re
commended to be $3.75 per acre. .
The rumor that ex-Queen Liliuokalani
is about to bring suit against the United
States for a large sum of money, basing
her claim for damages upon the Presi
dent's recent Hawaiian message and

a great deal of interest in official circles.
A suit cannot be brought by an individ
ual against the government, and there
is no method of procedure through the
courts by which the ex-Queen could pre
sent her claim. The only course Liluo
kalani can pursue is to submit her claim
against the United States. This Con
gress would have to approve before ' the
claim could be adjusted bv the Court of
Claims. In fact, the only recourse of
the ex-Queen is to Congress', where in
view of her present unpopularity she
could scarcely expect to meet with satis
faction or success. -

SHE SHOCKS THE PRINCESS.
But the Prince I Not Troubled With En
nnl When Countess Warwick Is About.
Many sensational stories have been told
in England and elsewhere of Frances Eve
lyn, the wife of Lord Brooke, who, on the
death of George Guy Greville a few days
ago, inherited the proud title of Earl of
Warwick. It is said that she is the one
woman of Whom the Princess of Wales has
ever condescended to be jealous. It 'is a
jealousy of a twofold character, since the
princess sees in the new French countess
not only a rival in the prince's affections,
THE NEW COUNTESS OP WARWICK,
but also in the leadership of English fash
ion. It is difficult to know which of these
two things affects more strongly the prin-
Then, too, Lady Brooke is a very bril-
liant woman. Her conversation is of the
most sparkling brilliancy, and besides this.,
it is marked by a freedom from conveu- 1
tionality which horrifies the somewhat i
straitlaced princess, who has inherited--1
all the love of etiquette of her mother, old
Queen Louise of Denmark.
The Prince of Wales is most easily bored.
The one thing of which he stands in the
greatest dread is ennui, and if there Is
any one person more than another in Eng
land who is capable of driving dullness
away it is the beautiful end witty Countess
of Warwick. '
The Prince of Wales has, during his mar
ried life of over a quarter of a century, had
many of those flirtations which the French
so appropriately term aventures, and on
one memorable occasion he has even been
brought into court as the corespondent in a
divorce case. Notwithstanding this, and
notwithstanding the flagrancy of his liai
sons both in England and on the conti
nent, the princess has never condescended
to manifest any sigDS of jealousy until the
Countess of Warwick appeared upon the
Should the queen die at the present mo-
ment and the prince ascend his mother's
throne there is no doubt that the Countess
of Warwick would become quite as impor
tant and as influential a personage in shap
ing the will of the monarch and the desti
nies of the nation as were the Marchioness
Cunningham in the case of King George
IV and the Duchess of Portsmouth in the
case of King Charles II.
The friendship between the Prince of
Wales and the Countess of Warwick dates .
from the period of her marriage in 1881.
The latter took place in Westminster abbey
and wag the only ceremony of the kind in
which a son of the queen has acted the part
of best man to a commoner, for such the
present Earl of Warwick was at the time.
The prince who officiated in this capacity
was the youngest brother of the Prince of
Wales, the late Duke of Albany, who was
mentioned at one moment prior to her mar
riage as likely to become the Lady Frances
The Prince of Wales likewise attended
the marriage and was the first of all present
to sign the register. It was a very notable
function, for the bride was at the time the
greatest heiress in London, baflDg inher
ited the whole of the fortune of her enor
mously wealthy father, the Hod. Colonel '
Maynard, whose widow subsequently mar
ried the late Earl of Rosslyn.
Almost immediately after her marriage
the countess or Lady Brooke, as she was
then began to assume a very prominent
place amoDg the leaders of society, and es
pecially of that particular circle of the Lon
don great world which is known as the -
Marlborough House set, the one object of
whose members is to amuse the prince, that
constituting their particular form of loy
alty. ; '
The new countess is far more beautiful
than even the best of her photographs make
her appear. Her friends say that they have .
never yet seen a portrait that did her jus
tice. With her wealth of chestnut brown
hair, her violet blue eyes and her exquisite
complexion, she has always seemed the per
fection of fresh, delicate and hlylike Eng
lish loveliness. In one thing, however, she
Is entirely un-English, and that is in her
taste for dress. There are few women in
London whose toilets are more perfect in
every way and more in harmony with their
wearer than those of the Countess of War

of Mr. Bright's illness, that Providence
was punishing him for misuse of talents
