Arctic expedition in danger of meeting
the unhappy fate of the Greely party in

From the start the expedition is alleged
to have been based on misconception aud

rejoicing among shippers and merchants

I ion payment of a duty of twenty-five
cents per 1,000 kilogrammes.
"I think that the treaty will have a I

Ward Line. "The Niagara of our lino, j
I which sailed on Thursday.was just chock
full of provisions, and the Captain was
instructed to steam slowly so as not to

the treaty became operative, lie was

WORLD'S COLUMBIAN FAIR.
THE NATIONAL, COMMISSION IN
SESSION AT CHICAGO.
EstiiTiated Expenses T'p to the Openlncr
Da 3" of the Exposition over Seven
teen Million Dollars.
Special to the Rkcord-Uxiox.
Chicago, Sept. 2. — The National
Columbian Commission met at noon to
! day. The first subject to come up was
the reading of a communication from the
General Secretary of the American Sab
bath Union, asking a bearing for the
delegation from that body on the subject
jof closing the exposition on Sunday.
! Finally, after considerable debate, it was
voted to appoint a committee of three to
•onfer with the Sabbath Union delega
j tion and fix an hour during to-morrow's
ssion at which tho commission would
hear the memorial.
Tho memorial of the Sabbath Union to
to be presented sets forth that a proper
observance of Sunday at the fair will
"honor the law of <;od, by whom the
- bbath was made for man," be in har-
Imonywith the letter and spirit of the
! laws of all the States and Territories, re
jpect the conscientious convictions of all
Christians, who form a large part of the
sterling character of the world, and who
should have their feelings considered,
and will be in line with the Sabbath ob
servance at the Centennial Exposition;
will follow the examble set by
the English - speaking nations at
the Paris Exposition; that to open it on
Sunday would unjustly.. :ompel the em
ployes of the fair and of the transporta
tion companies to labor on the Lord's
day, and would lead to excesses by the
Vicious classes; tint Saturday half-holi
days and the generosity of employers
may be depended upon* to give all "em
ployes opportunities to visit the fair; that
this Government cannot afford to set such
an example to the nations of the world;
I bat all foreigners should be given an op
portunity to Bee the American Sunday as
it is usually observed, and finally that the
event which tho fair celebrates was the
result of the supreme inspiration of a
I Christian man, who took possession of
1 the newtworld in the name of the Son of
Man, who is Lord of the Sabbath.

crippled the work, but it is to be hoped

Three Women Arrested Who Follow

PrsTK, Sept. 2.—The poisoning mania j
is again spreading in Southern Hungary,
and three old women, classed as profes
sional poisoners, have been arrested. It
appears that these women, for compen
sation, poison people of whom other per
sons wish to get rid, their patronage
coming chiefly from wives who have got
tired of their husbands and seek that
method of divorce. There is reason to
believe that a multitude of persons have i
perished in this way, and each woman
now arresjed is said to have had at least
ten victims. Sensational disclosures aro i
expected at the approaching trial, us the I 1
