Infanta Enlalia's Grand Greeting at the
White Ol*F—She Receives the
Homage of Two Hnndred
By the Associated Press.l
Chioaoo, June B.—The majority of
the United States circuit court today
decided that the world's fair must close
Sundays. Judges Wood and Jerrkius
ordered tbat an injunction be issued
restraining the officials from opening tbe
gates of tbe fair grounds. Judge Grose
cup dissented, recommending tbat the
injunction applied for by the United
States district attorney be not granted.
The opinions of Judges Wood and
Jenkins, though reaching the same
point of view in the end, take action on
widely diverging grounds, and the dis
senting opinion differs radically from
The court room was crowded when
tbe decisions were read. Judge
Woods read his own opinion, in
which be concluded tbat Jackson park
was lawfully devoted for exposition pur
poses, and that tbe exposition had been
in fact turned over to the control of tbe
federal government by the local corpora
tion, and that its control was therefore
as absolute as its control of a federal
building. He held that a Sunday clos
ing rule having once been passed by the
local directory and approved by the
national commission, tbe former body
could not change it. Regarding the
case before Judge Stein of tbe state
court, he held that it was no bar to tbe
proceedings, because it is inadmietable
to say tbat the government must in
comity yield to tbe state court.
Judge Jenkins took tbe view that the
Sunday closing condition waa not a
question of religious belief, but a matter
of scientific research that man required
one day in seven to rest, and tbat this
bad been recognized by tbe United
States ever since their foundation. The
resolution of the directory to return the
souvenir coin, he claimed, was no ten
der at all. He said the question olid not
hinge on tbe question of the possession
oi the grounda by the federal wilWAfc
that an injunction issue.
Judge Grosacup, in dissenting, beld
that the commissioners had jurisdiction
over the exhibits in awarding prizes;
also tbe right to modify, but not to
make, rules. He took exactly the
opposite view from Judge Woods
in reference to tbe $5,000,000
appropriated by congrees, holding that
it was not in the nature of a gift, bat a
contract between tbe United States and
the local corporation. He said if tbe
national commision had charge of the
exposition, as claimed, it waa the first
time he had ever heard of a donor mak
ing himself' a donation. The govern
ment had broken its contract by with
holding part of this appropriation;
therefore the local organization was re
leased from its contract with tbe gov
ernment. He, therefore, disagreed from
tbe conclusions of the other judges.
Attorney Walker immediately ap
pealed to the United States court of
appeals, and tbe question will be con
sidered at 9:30 tomorrow.
Director General Davis gaid: "Cer
tainly we will keep within the law, and
if that is tbe law, tbe fair will be closed
Vice-President De Young of the na
tional commission said: "The opinion is
a surprise to me. The national govern
ment could make no law affecting Sab
bath observance in Illinois, so made a
contract with the local directory, and
then broke it."
Other members of the local directory
and the national commission declined to

Immense Throngs Pay Homage to the
Chicago, June B.—No woman waa ever
honored with agrandergreeting ora more
cordial welcome than waa accorded to
Maria Eulalia, the infanta of Spain, npon
her arrival at the World's Colombian
exposition today. No less than 150,000
people were on the grounds and this
mighty host, representing every nation
and every people from the Arctic regions
to tbe equator, all did homage to the
little woman from Spain, and from the
time of her arrival till she left the white
city this Democratic member of Spain's
royal house showed by her every
act that sbe fully appreciated
the honors showered upon her
and tbe grandeur oi the eight she
saw—the glittering white palaces, tem
ples of art and science, stored with tha
wonders of tinman ingenuity, and the
wondrous size of these beautiful struc
tures—was such tbat from the time the
royal guest entered the gates until she
arrived at the administration bnilding,
her face wore the expression of one lost
The day waa bright and beautiful.
The temperature was jnet right to be
ont of doors, and the world's fair never
looked so beautiful as when visited by
Princess Eulalia this morning. Tbat
she was astonished and delighted be
yond measure by what she saw was
fully evinced in her demeanor through
out, and the undisguised keen interest
she took in everything she saw.
The princess and party were driven to
tbe fair over tbe beautiful boulevard,
escorted by tbe Chicago hussars. En
tering tbe Midway Plaisance, tbat med
ley of all nations, sbe was received by
barbarians of every clime with tbe
homage peculiar to them aad with the
accompaniment of native music. En
tering the fair proper, she was driven to
the administration bnilding, where
breakfast was served in a room beauti
fully decorated. Her pathway from her
carriage to the entrance was carpeted
with 26,000 pansies, strewn by little
girls. Breakfast over, sbe paid a visit
to the woman's building and drove
among tbe great baildings of the (air,
returning later to the Palmer house.
She was at the grounds tonight and
witnessed the splendid illumination.
Tonight fully 200,000 people were at
tbe grounds, the attraction being dual—
the infanta and a magnificent electrical
and pyrotechnic display.

NEBRASKA'S BIG DAY.
Dedication of the Bagnaters Bnilding at
the World's Fair.
Chicago, June B.—An unique pro
grammee was observed today in opening
tbe Nebraska state building at the
world's fair. The past and present were
brought together, face to face. Tribeß
of Indians, whose ancestors bad hunted
deer and buffalo on the wide prairies of
the state, rubbed elbows with dis
tinguished citizens of that common
wealth, and the utmost good feeling pre
vailed. Governor Lorenzo Crounse and
staff came to the fair in a carriage this
morning, and were met at the entrance
by Hon. William F. Cody and his outfit
of cowboys, Indians, soldiers and
Mexicans, representing Nebraska in
the early days, wbo escorted
tbe governor and party to
the state building. Incoming
trains for the past few days bad been
loaded with Nebraska people and they
were at the building to meet Governor
Crounse and escort. Gen. Joseph Gar
nean, president of the etate commission,
formally turned the building over to the
governor, wbo dedicated it to the public
in a brief address. He was followed by
W. J. Bryan, member of congress, ex-
Governor R. W. Furnass and others.
At the conclusion of these exercises,
Mrs. Caroline W. Brooks, the "butter
artist," molded in nutter the official
seal of the state which will be put on
exhibition in the Nebraska dairy dis
play in the agricultural building.

Columbus, o.,.Tune B,—A sensational
event marked the close o! the school
children's parade'today in honor of tbe
duke oi Veragnw. Tbe duke's brother
fell prostMtf«T i J& W3 P^'. S Hi
suffered frightful agony, and the attack
seemed likely to result fatally, owing to
tbe terrific jam of spectators and tbe
inability of tbe antborities to force back
the people to give tbe nobleman air.
Bishop Watterson stood ready to admin
ister tbe last sacrament. An electric
battery was bronght into operation by
the physicians who had been sent for.
Under the operations of tbe doctors tbe
necessity for action by the bishop grad
ually disappeared. The attack was
probably brought on by the excitement
of the day, the cheering and tumult in
the convention which nominated Mc-
Kinley, and the remarkable eight of the
procession of school children, which was
miles in length.
The Duke of Veragua arrived tht3
morning as the guest of tbe city, the
largest in the world named after his an
cestors. Tbe hotels being crowded by
politicians, they were entertained at the
residence of 11. T. Chittenden, and tbey
were escorted by the mayor, the citi
zen's committee and a detachment of
militia. This afternoon tbe ducal party
reviewed a parade of 13,000 school chil

While the duke and party were on the

There Are Very Conflicting Opinions

the Necessity of an
By the Associated Press.
Washington, June B.—The Star says:
President Cleveland told members of
congress today that under no circum
stances would there be an issue of bonds
unless especially authorized by congress.
The administration, be said, was not
responsible for the present financial
situation and it lay with congress, and
not with the administration, to find a
remedy for it.
CONGRESSMAN TRACEY SPEAKS,
An evening paper has the following:
General Tracey of Albany, who is one of
the most conspicuous anti-silver leaders
in congress, and who is regarded as one
of the strongest friends of the adminis
tration on the floor of the bouse, is in the
city and saw the president today. Gen
eral Tracey sayß that the Sherman law
will be repealed at tbe coming session
without the passage of any substitute
measure or the adoption of any com
promise with the free silver men. Tbe
proposition to repeal this law will have
a large majority, he says, in the
bouse and there are 45 votes for
it in the senate. He also gave it as his
opinion that the proposed repeal of the
10 per cent tax on the circulation of
state banks would fail of passage. Com
ing from General Tracey, these views
are of more than ordinary value. He
has carefully studied the situation,
knows every has been made,
and evidently speaks by tbe card.
A DIFFERENT VIEW.
Senator Jones of Arkansas took an
entirely different view from that enter
tained by General Tracey. "The Sher
man law can never be repealed in the
senate," said he, "unless some other
measures looking to the coinage of
silver is substituted. lam opposed to
the Sherman law, and spoke and voted
against It, but I would not vote for its

enacted, or some measure like it, and
would support the repeal of tbe present
law with that compromise attached.
SENATOR TBLLER'S OPINIONS.
Denver, Colo., June B.—Senator Tel
ler, in a lengthy letter which will appear
in the Rocky Mountain News tomorrow,
takes strong grounds against President
Cleveland's statement to the Associated
Press that an extra session of congress
is necessary to repeal tbe Sherman law.
The senator says the use of silver as
money is a question in which all work
ing men and all producers, of every kind,
are especially interested. It is a fight
for commercial and financial independ
ence; for the progress, prosperity,
freedom and happiness of ninety-nine
one-bnndredths of the race, and in im
portance it overshadows and dwarfs all
questions presented for the consider
ation of mankind. It is not a fight
against weaklings, it is a fight against
organized wealth; against those wbo
control by their wealth the administra
tion, the press and in some cases tha
pulpit, and tha unthinking and ignorant
mass of men who sell their birthright
for tbe present mess of pottage.
Senator Teller holds that the existing
financial stringency does not arise from
the silver law in force, bnt rather from
the policy of the great monetary institu
tions of the world toward the systematic
euhancement of the value of gold in re
lation to all products. He points out
that while the storms rage in England,
Australia, Germany and the Nether
lands, bimetallic France ia serene and

Bankers' association today passed reso

The Examining Boards of Surgeons to
Washington, Jnne 8. —The question
oi reorganizing the boards oi pension ex
amining surgeons throughout the coun
try is just now nnder consideration by
Secretary Hoke Smith, Commissioner
Locbren and Deputy Commissioner
Murphy. There are 1260 oi these boards,
each containing three members, and
their work is a very important factor in
the administration of the pension laws
and the adjudication of claims. The
officials of tbe department state that
careful examinations have revealed in
competence and gross carelessness in
the work of some of these boards,
and in some instances tbe evi
dence indicates that improper in
fluences have beon successfully applied
to secure reports in pension claims fav
orable to applicants. In view of these
facts it has been decided to give tbis
branch of the service a general overhaul
ing. While no formal plan of reorgani
zation has been announced, it is stated
that the purpose of Commissioner
Lochren, with the approval of tbe secre
tary, is to appoint on these boards only
men who stand in the very front rank
in their respective localities, and men
who keep well abreast of the times in
medical science. Another inflexible
condition to appointment will be that
of unquestioned integrity. The politics
of applicants will not, it is said, be made
of first importance, although all others
being equal, Democrats will undoubtedly
he given preference The officials in
ppeaking of the matter today said
that the recommendations by men
of known character in the medical pro
fession will be more efficacious in secur
ing appointment on pension boards than
if made by politicians. The active ,
work of reorganization will soon be

Washington, June B.—During tbe
first three months of the present admin

ber of fourth-class postmasters appointed
was 6537, of which 4572 were to fill va
cancies caused by resignations and
death, and 1865 by removals. During
the corresponding period of Harrison's
administration, tbe total number ap
pointed was 8226, or 1636 more than
were appointed during the last three
months. Of these 2659 were to fill
vacancies caused by resignations and

Mr. Blanton Duncan:
Dear Sir :—I have much pleasure in
acknowledging receipt of your kind let
ter of the 2d inst., enclosing a copy of
your letter to the secretary of state,
Hon. W. Q, Gresham, in reference to
the Geary act, which you condemn as
unjust and inequitable. 1 appreciate

the justice and friendship which you

lately received from my government, I
am instructed to protest strongly
against the enforcement of the act, and
adopt a firm attitude in tbe adjustment
and settlement of the pending difficul
ties. However, lam glad to be able to
say tbat the present administration is
not pushing matters to the extreme, but
still has regard for the maintenance of
mutual friendship, and is endeavoring
to observe the treaty stipulations of the
two nations. There is now no alterna

Vihalia, Cal., Jnne B.—Last night
Sheriff Kay received information that
Evans and Sontag, the fugitive highway
men, were in town. He did not make
an attack, fearing a repetition of the
last fiasco. At 12:15 today he received
what he considered reliable informa
tion that the men were at Evans* house.
A posse of 100 men was organized. The
house was surrounded and tbe sheriff,
accompanied by a nephew of Kvans,
went to the bouse and tbe men were not
found. The home of Mrs, Byrd, Evans*
mother-in-law, was also visited, but tha
desperadoes were not there. Sheriff
Kay was satisfied tbe bandits had left,
though he is confident they were there
last night, as his information is regarded
as reliable. Tbe posse retnrned to town

Many people believe the bandits ara

This evening Mrs.Evans and daughter
Eva called at the sheriff's office and got
a 32-ealiber gun belonging to them.
Driving up Main street, they purchased
cartridges at a gun store. The fact
caused excitement among the citizens.
After the majority of tbe men wbo
had surrounded Mrs. Byrd's bouse bad

against the fence. Picking it up, she
said: "Will Smith brought tbis. I will
let it go."
Mys. Byrd'a bouse has two stories.
All the doors and windows were open
when tbe sheriff visited it, except, one
window up stairs, ia which tbe curtains
