Kwderly, tho retiring grand mastor
workman or tho Knights of Labor, nnd
refuses to give him tho credit that fair
minded men ovorywhoro will acknowl
edge is his duo. Powderly in organising
the Knights or Labor porformod a work
in industrial mobilisation that was quite
unparalleled. As tho head of a vast
army of disciplined men he wiolded an
immense power, nnd his opportunities
for personal aggrandisement were un
limited. But the master workman
does not appear to have used his power
except for the benellt of the order.
There is no reason for supposing that
be does not go out of office as poor as he
when he went in. The moat credit
able faet in connection with Powder-
ly'a official' career,, however, is that at a
time when radicalism ran rampant and
aaarchists were leading deluded work
ingmen along the trail of bloodshed
and riot, Powderly, with unlimited
power and with many temptations, was
not affected by the clamor. He was
mainly for peaco when other leaders
were for war, and when others waved
the red Hag and advocated dynamito
he counseled moderation. Surroun
ded by radicalism he was, by compari
son, a conservative. Of all tho labor
leaders ho was the least demagogic. It
was perhaps impossible for him not to
yield a little now and then to tho tre
mendous pressure, but ho wan generally
steadfast in his opposition to revolu
tionary methods, nnd certainly ho is on
titled to credit for his course. Powderly
b not a geniua and thoro huvo Won
many greater generals, but ho was n
eareful leader, and hia wisdom undoub
tedly prevented much loss of llfo and
destruction of property, and tho country
is indebted to hhn.
Governor Crounhk is really moro to
blame thau Qarneau. Tho latter is only
a cracker man and he doesn't know any
better; but Crounso has intelligence
enough to realize tho important of tho
, position to which Garncuuwasappointcd,
and his appointment of a weakling like
Garneau to such a post, with responsi
bilities so vital to tho welfare of tho
state, was hardly less than criminal. It

lew isn't capable of rising above soda

World's Fair, Aug. 4.- Special. -Today
I mot one of my friends from WsMi
ingtnn, who had but a few days to spend
In tho exposition, nnd he asked me, iunv
much as I hsd been here some time, to
namo for him the twenty-five things most
worthy his time and attention. "I can
seo at tho llrst glance," said he, "that this
fair is too big- for me. I can't take in a
tenth part of It. I don't want to waste
sny time running about aimlessly, and
wlion I start out I want to know just what
I am aftor. So if you will sit down and
tell mo about twenty-five of the most In
teresting things to bo seen here you will
do mo n great favor." I said to my friend
this was easier to talk of than to do, nnd
besides, if I were to try to glvo him such a
list It might not suit his tnstcs at all nnd
in tho end ho would blamo Instead ol
thank mo for whnt I had done.
Again, thoro was an objection to tin
plan In that I might namo for him toe
many things thnt had como from foreign
countries, while ho might be mora inter
csted in Aincrltnn works. To this ho re
plied thnt ho would take his chances on
my judgment, and as to the foreign arti
cles nnd displays, that was just what he
enred most to see, and If I had made n
study of tho imported wares so much thq
bolter. In this way I wan led to attempt a
feat which naturally I should not under
take. Dalow will ho found tho list which
I gavo to my friend, with somo of tho rea
sons therefor, nnd If It shnll prove any as
sistant to the intending visitor to the
fair I shall bo glnd.
To my motion tho twenty-five most In
tercstlng things which tho foreigners have
to show hero aro as follows:
1. Tho Doro vnso in French section of
Manufactures building. It is a note
worthy work of art, without doubt the
finest bronse to be found in the exposition.
It is not only large in sIze,majestio in pro
portions and a notable casting Judged
purely from the mechanical point of view,
but It is wonderfully beautiful in its de
sign and in the figures with which its sur
face is literally covered. Gustav Dore, the
artist, is dead, and the great vase is for
sale for the benefit of his family. The
price Is $30,000.
2. Tho street in Cairo is a splendid ex
ample of the art of transplanting an Ori
ental scono to the midst of western civil
ization. Though a mere showman's trick,
tho Cairo street, with Its shops, its
mosque, its dromedaries, donkeys, theater,
temple, savage camps and other accessor
ies Is a bit of realism which Is not sur
passed in the exposition for genuine hu
8. The loan galleries in the Fine Arts
palace. In these rooms are displayed sev
eral score of masterpieces by foreign art
ists, now owned in America. Here are
the best pictures of the exposition. But
for their presence several of the foreign
schools, notably that of France, would be
so poorly represented as to he almost
4. The laces made in Belgium, in
France, in Italy, with their arttstk value
bout in the order named. ' AU women
love laces and many men after behbMing
these airy, fairy, fllm-llke creations, wish
that fashions might change so as toper
salt them to wear laces. Fabrics at a
thousand dollars a yard are costly, but the
beauty is there in a degree which you have
never dreamed of.
5. The marble statues and statuettes tn
the Italian section, Manufactures build
ing. These are not supposed to be the
highest types of the art of sculpture for
these you must go to the Fine Arts palace
but they are the works which please the
masses. They are expressive, they are
pictures in stone, they have life and action
rather than lofty ideals. They are Id Im
mense variety and of amaxing cleverness.
A. The Javanese village as an example
of the simple, almost dainty life and peace
ful industrial pursuits of an interesting
people rrom the other side oi the worm.
They have here a village with forty or
more structures In it, representing all
tbelr forms of architecture and all man
ner of life. A cleanly, industrious, lov
able, skillful people they are, and their
small stature makes them seem more like
children than men and women grown.
7. The gowns and millinery in the
French section, Manufactures building.
There are no such dressmakers, no such
milliners, elsewhere in the world. In Paris
these trades approach the fields of high
8. Work in silver to be found in Rus
sian and Danish sections, Manufactures
building. The Russians excel all other
nations in the use of enamel. Some of
their wares are surprisingly beautiful and
difficult of execution. In repouse silver
the Danes appear to lead. Compare these
silver works with those in tbe Tiffany and
Gorham exhibits, United States section,
and note that America is attaining not
only fine workmanship but character in
9. The carvings in the Japanese and
Italian sections, Manufactures building.
These two peoples are the earth's greatest
carvers. The Italians are surely ahead of
all rivals, with the Japanese a good sec
ond. 10. The Gobelin tapestries In the French
section, Manufactures building rare 'old
pictures In fabrics, famous pieces from the
last century and the century before. See
also the tapestries in the Belgium section.
11. German chemistry, Manufactures
building. The Germans excel all other
peoples in chemistry, which Is the art that
stands at tho base of all arts and Indus
tries. The display of chemicals here Is tho
most comprehensive and Important the
world ever saw.
la. The Doulton pottery and Royal
Worcester ware from England, also tho
Cauldon china from the same country, In
comparison with tbe delft ware from Bel
glum, the Royal porcelains from Austria,
and Germany, the terra cottas and porce
lains from Denmark, aud tbe cloisonne
and porcelains of ,h Japanese, These are
tne ceramic nations or the earth, and tbe
visitor who studies their products will see
all in this line that Is worthy his atten
tion. la The English railway train and loco
motive, Transportation building, in com
parison with the French locomotives and
German cars and American locomotives
and trains which stand nearby. Ntsuoa
opportunity to study tbe railway transpor
tation methods of various countries was
sver offered before.
14. TheKrupp guns, special pavilion,
and heavy forglngs for other purposes,

15. Instruments of measurement and
precision made by Germans and shown In
tbe Hrst ioor aud gallery of the Electricity
building; The skill that man has attained
In this direction, measuring electrlo cur
rents, temperatures, illuminating the In
teriors of human bodies and organs, is al
most beyond belief.
10. Bohemian glassware as the very
finest possible product of the art of glass
making. The Austrian empire has no
rival in glass, unless It be the Venetians;
and In cut glassware the Americans make
a specialty and the beat works.
17. Hatfield hall, nearly full sized
model, British section, Manufacture!
building, as showing one of the most mag
nificent interiors and typical British deco
rations nnd service of two centuries ago.
18. Swiss watches, hand-made, marvels
of Ingenuity and workmanship, Swiss sec
tion, Manufactures building. Compare
those with American made watches, In
which machinery plays such an important
part, two or three blocks down Columbia

gas, hospitals, police, detection of crime
by means of photography,eventhemorgu
with its glmstly scenes, tho reformatory
schools and farms in tho suburbs.
21. Models of foreign merchant and
naval vessels, Transportation building.
Thorn Is a great number of these hand
some structures, and they form ono of the
most Interesting features of the transpor
tation display, which good Judges have de
clared to be the most thoroughly compre
hensive and nearly perfect departmental
building of the exposition. The makers of
the models have no arranged them as to
afford visitors a graphic Idea of tho rise ol
the world's shipping, the gradual increase
of the size of the great merchant ships, the
changes of forms, the growth of the art of
marine architecture. Among all these
models there Is none that attracts more at
tention than that of the Ill-fated battle
ship Victoria, which sauk in a collision in
the Mediterranean a few weeks ago.
While looking at this model it is hard to
realize that such a magnificent craft,
equipped with all the most costly and pre
sumably most effective safety appliances,
was sent to the bottom of the sea in twen
ty minutes by an injury to one of its parts.
22. The displays of tho world's valuable
woods in the Forestry building, particu
larly the giant redwood4rces aud cedars of
California, our own oaks and walnuts, the
bamboos of Asia and the South seas. The
biggest tree here is not in tho Forestry
building, by the way, but may bo seen In
the Government building, whore it occu
pies a position in the great rotunda. It is
a part of the exhibit of the department of

life is the home, all visitors will be inter

To Give a Cera Banquet.
Charles J. Murphy, a special agent of the
agricultural department engaged in intro
ducing corn into Europe, has been in Chi
cago for some weeks, and through bis ef
forts there are now nine places on the ex
position grounds where corn can be had in
its different forms as appetising human
nourishment. Mr. Murphy hopes to round
off his activities for corn in Chicago by an
elaborate corn banquet, to be given In one
of the state buildings best Adapted lor tbe
purpose, probably New York. The foreign
commissioners and principal foreign cor
respondents and commissioners from each
state are to be invited guests. Corn is to
be served in all Its tempting forms, and
literature is to be furnished each guest
descriptive of the many uses to which the
grain is put. Mr. Murphy holds that this
i an Ideal opportunity for showing the
possibilities of corn and he believes that
no exhibit in the entire exhibition will so
strikingly impress tho foreign guests.
