The Dewey ball given in thft Audito
rium in Chicago Monday evening,
April 30, is said by the connoisseurs to
be the most splendid affair of that kind
ever given in the city. Thera were
hundreds of people in attendance, and
the dress was beautiful and brilliant.
The Sunday Chronicle, in speaking of
the function, say: "The admiral of
the navy was much admired. His splen
did bronze face, dashing white mus
tache, and brilliant dark eyes, set oil so
well by the wealth of gold lace on his
long tailed coat, won men and women
alike. The bonhomie and cordiality of
the admiral and also his evident enjoy
ment of the party given in his honor
were most winning. He sat most of the
time on a raised throne-like ssat near
Mrs. Dewey and Mrs. Arthur Caton.
The wife of the admiral is a comely wo
man. Rather large, she has dark au
burn hair, small eyes, and small, round
features in a full and rather heavy face.
She wore a gown of white satin, a neck
lace of diamonds, from which hung five
stars of pearls, and in her hair was a
large diamond ornament."
