the objects of the convention as set forth
is tho nomination of "one person for tho

have simply copied an old call. It was
assuredly not my intention to specify
the nomination of a Superintendent of

it set forth in the call I thought of hav

as to his reasons for the wording of the

I don't see anything. I followed tho

Vice President Prange, Agent Hamlin
and Frsfeseor Ileerdegan returned Sun
day night from the Yuma copper mines
at Harcuvar. The artesian well is not
furnishing enough water to supply the
smelter when started, so it is now in

is found, when drifts will be run across
the flow. An abundance of water is ex
pected at the depth of soventy-flve feet.
Alwut 5,000 tons of ore are now upon
the dump awaiting the "blowing in" of
the smelter. Assays and a short smelter

The Illinois Hoard of Agriculture Threat
en to Make Trouble at the
Special Session of the
Spkinohei.d, III., July 22. One fea
ture of the specudseesion of the Illinois
Legislature wiU'oe the aggressive part
to be played by the Illinois State Board
of Agricultuie. A committee from that
board will present to the General Assem
bly the views of the agriculturists to
the World's Fair site. It has been
know n all along that the State Board
was bitterly opposed to Lake Front,
holding that no matter how that site
may be improved, it will be entirely
inadequate to the accommodation of
the agricultural exhibits, which such an
occasion will call forth. Secretary
Girrard said tonight to a representative:
"We insist and every state board of
agriculture in the Union will insist with
us that the agricultural exhibits must
not be embarrassed in such a manner as
to impair such exposition. We do not
desire to dictate to the diiectora where
they shall hold or delect a site, but we
have a right to insist that the site shall
lie one that will supnly every demand for
space. Four hundred acrea would not lie
excessive for the agricultural exhibits
of tho World's Fair. Two hundred
acres will be the minimum which will
accommodate the States of this
Union. California alone asks for forty
act cs for its agricultural, fruit and vin
tage exhibit and will be probably not
satisfied with less than fifteen or
twenty. The State of Illinois will want
forty. The demands of State Boards
are to be observed. Other States will
want five, ten or fifteen acres each.
All told, the States cannot "get along
vv ith less than 200 and it is absolutely
imposfible to give us this if the
lake front is selected as the site.
We will positivel) not be satisfied with
a site which will place the agricultural
exhibit a mile away from the other
principal features. In my opinion, in
case the lake front is selected as a site,
the Illinois Board of Agriculture will
drop the subj'ect entirely, and not make
any exhibit. Of course, however, if the
next regular session of the Legislature
makes an appropriation and instructs
us to make an exhibit, we will carry out
the provisions of the law, but this is our
opinion, that if tlie lake front is se
lected, the agricultural boards of the
country will regard the World's Fair.in
advance as a failure, and almtain from
any attempt at a successful exhibit of
the agricultural products of the country.
