EXPOSITION WILL BE
CLOSED ON SUNDAYS.
Motion to Depart From the Rule of
Past Years Voted Down by
Uoard of Directors.
READY FOR OPENING MONDAY.
Tissot Collection of Pictures, Illus
trating the Life of Christ,
Viewed by the Clergy
At a meeting of the Board of Directors of
the St Louis Exposition held yesterday
afternoon It was decided that the Kxrjosl
tlon would not be opened to the public on
Sunday this year. It was not until ufter
com-lderablo debate that this decision wtis
finally arrived at. Owing to the fact that
one of the principal features of the exhibi
tion is a collection of sacred pictures, and
a plan to render sacred concerts every Sun
day, a number of th directors were in fa
vor of opening the Exposition on that day.
Arguments wero also brought out that
the open Sunday would afford an oppor
tunity to the working classes, who are con
fined by their occupations week days, to
visit the Exposition. It was held, on the
other hand, that it had always been a rulo
in preious years to close on the Sabbath,
so tho motion to open on Sundays was de
feated. The Exposition will bo opened on Mon
day. The work of nrranglnir displays and
exhibits has been going on for more than
a week and tho management expects to
hate everything In perfect readiness for
the opening. There are to be a number of
novel and interesting features, both in the
exhibits and specialties In the Jlui-Ic Hall
nnd Coliseum. President Galennie s-ays
that he believes the display this year will
equal, if not surpass, those of previous
Yesterday the collection of pictures Illus
trating the life of Christ, by J. James Tl
sot. on exhibition In tho art halls of tho
Exposition building, nab visited by a largo
number of St. Louis ministers and priests.
Tho local clergy was especially invited by
the management of the Exposition to In
spect tho collection, so they could cxpres
their views on it and give their opinion as
to whether the Exposition should be opened
to the general public on Sundajs.
There was great enthusiasm displayed
oer the mugnlliccnt collection. The con
census of opinion that It surpassed any
thing of thu kind ever exhibited here. Uno
clergyman was overheard to remark that
the proper way to v.ew tho collection was
with a magnifying glass in one hand and
a testament in the other. In all. thtro are
4(2 pictures In the collection, which is ar
ranged in the two larse artrooms at tho
east end of the building, and the torridors
Among the exhibits which wero complet
ed yesterday were those of tho Grand
Trunk IJne and mineral displays from the
Missouri and Arkansas mining district.
The former consists of splendid photo
graphs of scenes taken in the region trav
ersed by the great Canadian .system, and
a number of niountid tlshes and specimens
of wild an.raal-. T.c mineral display, which

Itlchmond. Va.. Sept 14. The strange
power of hypnotism was demonstrated here
yesterday In a manner that was rather
startling. John Sweeney, a well-known
young man, was temporarily transformed
into a maniac by the effect of hypnotism. A
social party wa.t given by Mrs. W. J. Gil
man, nnd among the guests were Sweeney
and Calvin Cooke, tho latter an amateur
hypnotist. He proposed to give an exhibi
tion of his skill, and Sweeney consented to
bo the subject Sn sooner was the latter
under the spell, however, than he Imagined
himself a pugilist.
Ho began to maae a general attack upon
rill present without regard to sex. Ho soon
cleared the hou-e and then began to demol
ish tho front fence, using for the purpose
an ornamental urn weighing several hun
dred pound, which he handled as though It
were a toy. Slxte?n men piled on the mad
dened boy. but he threw them right und
left and began tearing his clothes off. A
hurry call was then turned in for the police
patrol wagon. It canto with five stalwart
The btrugglo then began anew and finally
resulted 4n the young man being handcuffed
and his feet tied together. His captors held
him on the ground while a physician admin
istered a hypodermic Injection of morphine.
He was then hurried to a hospital and un
bound, whereupon he fell upon an Iron bed
stead nnd broke It in pieces. More drugs
were administered and finally he was
quieted. To-day lie had returned to his nor
mal state, but was weak and nervous.
Sweeney has never been regarded as re
markablo for physical strength.
