Thousands of Workmen Putting
on the Finishing Touches
IHE PIANO QUESTION AGAIN
I Causes n Decided Clash of
Authority
The atonal Commissioners and Council
of Administration at Loggerheads
DirectorGeneral Davis Called
to Account
CHICAGO May 21Vork on the un
finished portion of the Worlds fair was
resumed this morning and thousands of
men were soon busy putting the finish
ing touches on the great show while an
other thousand were at work putting
exhibits in place Teams loaded with
wonders from the four quarters of the
earth passed here and there among the
buildings and locomotives with loaded
trains puffed and steamed through the
grounds In the midst of all throngs of
sight seers strolled through the grounds
mostly engaged in getting an idea of the
architectural splendors on the position
of which so far as outward appearances
go is complete This alone is more than
can be accomplished in a single day The
immensity of the work grew on the spec
tators as they moved from point to point
and found an amount of exertion was
t necessary to merely walk around the great
structures A mere sight of them does
not afford a fair gauge of their size a the
buildings are all so large that nothing of
ordinary dimensions is in sight t furnish
a standard of measurement
DirectorGeneral Davis has been sum
moned before the national committee to
explain why he had not carried out the
Instructions of the committee regarding
instructons regding
the use of a piano made by nonexhibi
tors This vexing piano question seems
t have caused a decided clash of author
ity between the national committee and
council of administration Each of these
official bodies claims to have jurisdiction
on the matter and each are determined
that the other shall withdraw So far
the council of administration seems to
have the best of the wrangle I is iu
favor of allowing the director of music
o Thomas and Paderewski to use a piano
made by a nonexhibitor Today at a
concert given in music hal at the fair
grounds such piano was used in open
violation of the orders eminating from the
commission and with the consent of the
counsel of administration
When Director General Davis appeared
before the commission this afternoon ne
stated that upon receipt of instructions
ne had ordered the director of works to
remove the objectionable piano He had
taken it for granted that his order was
obeyed and he had been so busy that he
had not had time to see the director of
J works in person
President Palmer of the national com
mission then read a communication from
Acting President Peck of the local direc
tory in reference t the discussion had by
that body over the matter and stating I
that it was on April 2 referred to the
council of administration Meantime
the cnnci h completed its in
vestigation and competed to the
national commission This report
excluding nonexhibitors pianos should
not be a law in the case 1 nonex
liibitors of pianos were excluded it would
cause a failure of the musical programme
in a large degree Furthermore the car
ing out of such order would not be for
the best interests of either exhibitors of
the fair and added that the council would
formulate rules t govern the matter
This report was not kindly received by
a large number of commIssioners and a
heated discussion ensued a a result of
which Commissioner Burton of Kansas
offered a resolution declaring that the
council of adminstration had no juris
diction in the piano question The
resolution was referred to the judiciary
I f committee and the commission adjourned
While the wrangle was going on Messrs
Thomas and Paderewski were busily en
gaged in music All but one of the
pianos were declared contraband by the I I
national commission Piano exhibitors
are greatly exasperated over the matter
and while none of them will withdraw I
they expressed themselves in anything I
but pleasant terms regarding the turn
matters nave taken They are awaitjng I
the outcome of tomorrows meeting

secretary of state and go to his summer

whatever to do with political office and
that he would devote the remainder of his

RECIPROCITY TREATIE
Number of Reasons Why They
Should Be Abandoned
FEARS OF SUGAR GROWERS
Complaints Received by the State De
partment of Evasions
Tho Brazilian Government Is Making
Trouble but Is Apparently Not Violat
ing tho Treaty with Spain Ameri
can Merchants Gain Little
WASHINGTON May 2An evening
paper has this Abundant reasons for
the abendonment of the policy of reci
procity under the McKinley bill exists in
complaints received by the state depart
ment regarding evasions of the treaty by
Spanish officials in Cuba The Spanish
government was forced into the treaty by
the diplomacy of Blaiue because of a fear
that i Cuban sugar growers were deprived
of their market in the United States
through reciprosity arrangements with
other sugar growing countries they
would raise and revolt against Spain
The government intends to make the
treaty so unpopular that it will fall to the
ground of its own weight and haa im
posed an excise tax nearly equal to the
duties remitted by the McKinley bill
Our government will protest strongly
against the tax or wipe out the whole
treaty and leave Cuban growers to face a
possible import duty under our new tariff
The Spanish government has also shown
atx inclination to nnke trouble on the
action regarding chedules on articles on
which duties are reluced by the treaty
The Brazilian government is also making
trouble over the reciprocity treaty but is
not apparently violating it so fla
grantly as the government of Spain It
is understood that when the schedules of
discriminations in favor of the United
States were made the general scale of Bra
zilian import duties might be raised
Brazil took advantage of this arrange
ment to raise the dutiable schedules so
soon as the reciprocity arrangement
was made and said she was obliged to do
so in order to obtain sufficient revenue
for carrying on the federal government
The result has been a very small net
gain to American merchants while the
people of Brazil are complaining of the
I increased schedules against other coun
tries and reciprocity arrangements with
both Spain and Brazil would probably be
wiped out at once but for a desire of the
administration to proceed with delibera
tion and make our policy toward the
southern countries dependent upon the
revision of our entire fiscal system

Possibly a Renewal of the Banditti
WASHINGTON May 2The state de
partment is ignorant officially of the re
ported insurrectionary movement in
Cuba Nothing bearing on the subject
has been received by the department from
the Spanish legation in Washington for
several months and no recent communi
cations concerning the matter have come
from United States diplomatic officers
Assistant Secretary Adee believes the
movement to be nothing more than a re

many opportunities in the wild and un
settled portions ofthe island
Gold thu Treasury

coin that those of New York The last
official report on the subject shows
that Chicago national banks held over
52000000 more gold coin than the New
York national banks

to 1500 men unusually well armed
The captain general called a council of

PARIS May 2The Behring Sea tribu
nal of arbitration resumed its session to
day Lord Hannan British arbitrator who j
has been ill being sufficiently recovered
to be present J O Carter consul for
the United States maintained that the 1
rights of the United States in the Behring
Sea were absolute and unqualified He
argued over again that the government of
the United States was justified in protect
ing its rights in thoso waters in time of
peace as well as any other time pro
claimed that the United States
had the right to seize vessels
caught in pelagic sealing Assum
ing argued Mr Carter that the rights
of property of the United States is ad
mitted as claimed was the government of
the United States to follow vessels found
engaged in pelagic sealing home in order
to claim redress for trespass against mu
nicipal law This he continued would
not only be effectual but would not com
port with the dignity of the United States
No nation ever deigned to resort to
another nation for an enforcement of its
municipal law The only method open
for the proper enforcement of such law
was the method of force and that was
justifiable in the case of tho Behnng Sea
on the same ground as in cases of revenue
and quarantine laws
Mr Carter then proceeded t argue on
the subject of the regulations but was
interrupted by Sir Charles Russell of
counsel for Great Britain who said that
Great Britain would not recede from its
position that the question of rights should
be argued apart from the question of reg
ulations Sir Charles stated however
that he would not object to Mr Carter
presenting a statement of his views on
the subject
An animated discussion followed in
which Baron De Courcel resident of the
tribunal American Arbitrator Harlan
British Arbitrator Lord Hannen Sir
Charles Russell and Hon E J
Phelps took part I was finally decided
that counsel for Great Britain should ar
gue the question of rights and the ques
tion of regulations separately but that
the tribunal would not give separate de
cisions Mr Carter then proceeded with
his argument which will be concluded
today
In his peroration Mr Carter described
the slaughter of female seals heavy with
unborn young and other horrors of
pelagic sealing To prevent these horrors
and protect the seal herds the United
States had taken the position which ha
explained to the best of his ability The
abit
United States had taken this position
the risk of war with Great Britain and
they had been ready to maintain this po
sition and thus discharge their duties to
humanity even i they were obliged to
face half the world in arms History
would recognize their rights and the jus
tice of their cause The duty of
the United States was not ex
tinguished by a reference of tho
dispute to the tribunal but that
had been merely transfered The United
States had withdrawn and left to the ar
bitrators a sacred duty forbidding ple
lagic sealing and confining seal killing to
the islands I the tribunal should de
cline to assume this duty it would only
leave for posterity a new source of con
tention
From the beginning to the end Mr
Carter had spoken forty hours As he sat
down Baron de Courcel president of the
court said I can not refrain from
thanking you sir for the magnificent
speech which has been characterized by a
loftiness court of views well worthy this high
