CHICAGO, Feb.  13.--The audience which greeted Oscar Wilde at the Centennial Music Hall*, to-night, was composed of the most cultivated class of Chicago.  It was very attentive and appreciative, and at times enthusiastic.  The Hall was full to overflowing but there was no sign of rowdyism or impropriety of any kind.

The name of the Music Hall is noted as Centennial not Central.  We find that Centennial is an error in the Montana primary source, Central is correct as in other chronologies.  See below.
