1 Tor the first time Binco the question
(of a silo was decided in the House, tho
Special Committee on tho World's Pair
had n meeting j esteidny. All tho mora-
Uiers of the committee were present ex
cept Mr. Frank, who is not in town, '
and Mr. Wilson, who was detained in ,
Tho sub-commllteo reported the bill '
it bad prepared, and which was pub-
lished, section by section, last Fiiday
exclusively in Tun Ciutic. The ses
sion, which lasted fiom 1 o'clock p. m.
until lalo in the afternoon, was not pro-
fisely n lo e feast. In fact It was warm
idl the way through, notwithstanding !
General Greeh bad Hung thccold-wavo

The Now York members attacked
( hicago's financial schemo, which up
pears to bo tho w oak link In Chicago's i
chain. So when section 5 was reached ,
Mr. Ilcldcn oflVicd a resolution to tho i
effect that it is inexpedient to adopt a
bill on tho subject of tho Woiid's Fair '
until Chicago has provided a site ami a I
$10,000,000 guarantee fund piopcrly j
secured. This resolution caused much '!
debate and added to the genial warmth j
of tlio indoor temperature. The friends
pi the City by tho Lako insisted that '
the nature of tho security required '
should bo specifically defined, so that
they could not bo compelled later to
furnish still other si curlty.
On tho principle of anything to
uleaso. tho resolution was moderately
tjinodified to lead as follows:
if That when a cuarautce fund ot ten mil-
f,Xlou dollars shall bo secured by tbo ellUous
!oi umcago, me siuucicuey uuu lugsiiuy tu
which shall bo satisfactory to this commit
tee, that wo rtpoit tho pcudlng bill with
suck amendments as the committee miy
The debate unon this nronositlon lie-
came so animated that tlio temperature
of the room lose to blood heat. Chair
man Candler mid Messrs. Nowdcn, Hltt
and Springer di dared that Chicago bad
nlicwly given sulllelent guaiantccs, but
the two New Yorkers and the
lone Mlssouriau persisted iu in-s-istiDg
that tlio matter should
be more accurately defined. Chairman
Candler read a Mateinent from Mr. hy
man J, Gage, chairman of tho Chicago
llnanco committee, asserting that $5,
000,000 valid subscriptions had been
madoto tho Illinois corporation, and
that tho additional $5,000,000 would bo
forthcoming lo ample time for tho fair.
Without settling tlio matter the com
niiltco adjourned until to-morrow.
