SEAT A BIG CHICAGO, Oct. 14.—An army of men is at work petting the.Manufactures building- ready for the dedication. The 400 carpenters who began at the first of the week to build the speakers' rostrum and the orchestra stand finished their work, after driving nails into something like a million feet of lumber. The huge stand for the orchestra is in the south end of the central hall of the building. The stage for the speakers and guests is in the center of the east side. It will take two days to sweep out, for there are thirty acres of floor to be dusted over. When the fifty or more men went to sweeping Wednesday a dozen bundles of brooms were brought in for their use. In the galleries will be close rows of benches, while the chairs are in the reserved-seat section immediately fronting the speakers' stand. This section will hold 15,000 people. In all there are 47,000 chairs in the building. The 4,500 cane- seated chairs in the main stand will he occupied by guasts hplding special invitations. Then there are 100 upholstered seats for dignitaries of the cabinet and supreme bench and governors of the states. •Will Occupy tho Benches. The benches, each. 12 feet long, arc already made. These are expected to seat ab'out 10,000 people. Preparations are now complete for seating 57,000 people outside of the orchestra and chorus stand. These seats occupy hardly one-third of the total space, and there will be standing room for 100,000. Those who stand will not know what is. going on at the rostrum unless they have field glasses. . The hall will be lighted by 242 arc lights of 2,000 candle-power each. Above the speakers' stand and the reserved-seat section will be twelve clusters of fire lights each. Above the galle'ry are seventy-two arc lights, one in the" center of each arcfi between the big roof trusses; under the gallery are ninety arc lights and one at each of the four entrances to the building. There are also sixteen lights in the nave, where the lunch .will be served. This light is furnished from -nhe special power plant installed for the occasion in'Machinery hall. Tlie Militia. It now seems reasonably certain that the militia of Illinois will take no part whatever in the par.ade on October 21, no money for. its transportation being available,. In answer to a communication 'frorn^Gen. Miles, Gen. Fitz Simons said yesterday that there had been an agreement to refrain, from calling out the national guard unless it 'could be represented as a whole. Gen. Miles was still hopeful that there would be subscriptions sufficient to pay for the transportation of the militia. One of the officers said there would not be sufficient time in which to mobilize the troops. -j Reports from other states indicate a large representation of the national guard. Gen. Miles has received positive assurance that troops will be present from the following states: Iowa, 1,200; Minnesota, 1,000; Wisconsin, 1,200; Indiana, 1,000; Ohio, 2,000, and Michigan, 500. The total number of regulars will be in excess of 2,000. The Marine band of Washington and a marine corps of 240 men will have the place of honor in the parade. The Mexican band is on its way to Chicago. "The reports to date indicate that 73,000 people will be in line," said Gen. Miles. "I believe it would be a most conservative estimate to say lliat there will be 60,000." All the assistant marshals for the civic parade are to meet at the world's fair headquarters Saturday afternoon. r>o Xot Look for tlie President. Although no word has come irom President Harrison it is generally believed that he 1 ,wi:l :iot be hereto attend T October 21. If he at the world's fair;, exercises nest, week He declined r^tbat honor in a telegram received"- by President Palmer, of the national commission. It is probable, now the "dedicatory" address, which was No. 13 on. the programme,will be omitted altogether,, and that Chauncey M. Depew's Columbian address will have to answer for. both. The Supreme Court Coinlnc- Chief Justice Fuller- told Messrs. Ewing and Addison that he and all his associates, except Justices Field and Lamar, would go to the dedication, and that probably the wives of all the members, except Justice Blatchford's, would accompany them. Congratulating- tho President. WASHINGTON, Oct 14.—President Harrison has received many friendly greetings for America from the representatives of foreign countries. One was from the governor of Madeira, who congratulated the people of the United States upon the success of this great republic.
