Decree Issuing an Injunction
Against Sunday Opening
The Decision Settles the
Vexed Question for All
Chief Justice Fuller Delivers
the Opinion to a Crowded
The United States Is Not in
Possession of the
Chicago, June 17.— Chief Justice
Fuller this morning overruled the de
cision of the federal circuit court which
issued an injunction restraining the
directors from opening the fair on Suu
day. He decides for the United States
court of appeals, and remands the suit
to the circuit court. The decision
means to a certainty that the world's
fair will be open on Sundays and
settles the case for all time,
as an appeal wouid have to go to
the supreme court of the United
States, which does not meet until Octo
ber, when the fair will be ended. Every
teat was taken fully an hour before the
time announced when the court would
decide the case, and standing room was
Boon exhausted. The crowd was so
dcii3e that no one of the many feminine
sightseers in the corridors succeeded in
gaining entrance to the court room.
Chief Justice Fuller, in rendering the
decision, spoke as follows:
"Deeming it desirable that this mat
ter should be disposed of at once, we
shall announce the result at which we
have arrived, postponing for want of
time the full expression of our views,
which will hereafter be given. The
npuellees have submitted a motion to
dismiss this appeal upon the grounds
that the jurisdiction of the circuit court
was ln issue; that
The Question Involved
the construction or the application of
the constitution of the United States,
arid that the constitutionality of a law
ot the United States was drawn in ques
tion therein; that, therefore, the appeal
for a final decree would lie to the su
preme court of the United States and
not to this court, and hence this appeal,
which is from an interlocutory order,
cannot be maintained under sec
tion 7 of the judiciary act of March
8, 1891. We do not understand that
the power of the circuit court to deter
mine tho case was denied, but that the
aypellants contended that the United
States had not by its appeal made a
case properly cognizable in a court of
equity, the objection was to the want
of equity, and not the want of power.
The jurisdiction of the circuit court was
therefore not in issue and within the
Intent or meaning of the act so far as
the construction or application of the
constitution of the United States
and the constitutionality of the
laws ot the United States are
concerned. We are of the opinion that
the order we are called upon to review
involved or drew in question neither
one nor the other, in the sense that the
action of the circuit court was invoked.
"The disposal of the proceedings, or
the disposition of the contention, rests
upon the ground as to whether the de
cision had any reference to the con
struction or application of the constitu
tion, or the validity of
Acts of Congress
In respect of that instance. And the
conclusion upon which the order was
based was invoked at constructions of
that character. The jurisdiction of this
court to review cannot be defeated at
the instance of the appellees, because
the constitutionality of the acts upon
which they rely mieht have been chal
lenged by their adversaries. The mo
tion to dismiss is overruled. The ques
tion to be determined is whether upon
this circuit preliminary injunctions
should have been granted. The
bill pleads that the defendants
are usurping unlawful authority over
the exposition and grounds, and In
virtue thereof assume to open the gates
on Sunday in contravention of the acts
of congress— notwithstanding such open
ing would be 'doing a great injury and
of grievous prejudice of the common
public good and to the welfare of the
people.' It is not contended that
any property interests of the complain
ant will bo Injured by the threatened
action, nor is there any allegation
of appreciable injury or probable
loss by "such action. But it is said that
the Intervention of the court may be
rested upon the protection of the United
States in its possessing the grounds of
the exposition for the purpose of pro
tecting the United States in its posses
sion. The furnishing of the 5,000,000
souvenir coins was a condition upon
The Local Corporation
by the United States, In addition to the
many millions it had already contrib
uted, the further sum of $2,500,000 and
the giving to the gover nment of a satis
factory guaranty that it would provide
all additional "sums necessary for the
complete construction of tbe work
prior to May 1, 1893, and was subject to
two conditions, subsequent, namely:
the payment by the corporation of all
expense, cost and charges of the
great departments of the exposi
tion and the closing of the exposition
on Sunday. In Yitw of the vast previ
ous expenditure of the corporation, and
the extent of the obligations assumen
the right of all parties concerned and
the nature Of these conditions, and tha
conditions subsequent, we do not think
this a proper case for the . rule in ques
tion; nor can we concur in the proposi
tion that the appropriation of tho two
aud a half .millions amounted to a
charitable trust, upon certain condi
tions warranted. The appropriation was
made for. the purpose of aidiiu: in defray
ing the cost of the completion of the work,
and to be paid over on vouchers for labor
done, material furnished, and services
performed in the prosecution of that
work, lt was an appropriation for the
benefit of the local corporation to help
It out of --fifi
Its Financial Difficulty,
and to enable It to complete its under
taking.and as such does not come under
the accepted definition of a charitable
gift for the benefit of an indefinite class
of persons. So far as the purpose of the
appropriation subsequently made is
concerned, that.purpose had to be ac
complished before the money could be
paid over. ji
. The decision of the court might In
terpose to protect the United States in
its possession, but it Is the local corpor
ation that is in actual possession under
the law ot the state, and of the ordin
ance of the South park commissioners.
"lie possession is recognized by the acts
of congress as essential to the con
struction and administration of the ex
position by the corporation. In that
construction the corporation has
invested* seventeen millions of dol
lars under circumstances that preclude j
the view that the United States have
exclusive administration and authority
in the premises. It is perfectly clear
that congress never intended that con
gress should become responsible for the
construction of any of the buildings ex
cept Its own or for the work provided
for by the appropriation.. However, it
was intended that the exposition should
Sanction of the Government
and in that sense as remarked by'
Chief Justice Waite, in the Philadel
phia case, 'be impressed by. a national
and international character. Of course
the government has qualified possession
but we find nothing in this regard upon
which to base an intervention of a
court of equity on that ground.'
"We cannot now discuss the various
questions necessary to be considered,
but which will be treated of iv the opin
ion to be filed. It is sufficient to say
that we cannot except this case from
the ordinary rule which requires to the
exercise of jurisdiction in chancery
some injury to property, whether actual
or prospective, some Invasion of prop
erty or civil rights, some injury irrepar
able in Its nature, and which cannot
be redressed at law. This is not such a
case, and the result is, we hereby refuse
the order, and the case is remanded for
further proceedings not iucousistent
with these conclusions."
Chief Justice Fuller's clear, positive
voice was audible to the remotest
hearer. It was with difficulty that
cheers were suppressed in the court
room, and tliere were outbursts of ex
uberant satisfaction by many before
they had gotten without the hearing of
the court. Judges Biinii and Allen gave
vent to no utterance whatever, con
ferring in every point as spoken by the
chief justice. The decisiou as given
above is the complete text short-handed

Washington, "June 17.— The opinion
of the court of appeals in deciding that
the World's Columbian exDosition at
Chicago shall be opened on Sunday was
received here by a press bulletin early
in the afternoon. Attorney General Ol
ney at a late hour this evening had re
ceived no official announcement of the
fact. He said that his department had a
clear record in tho case, and had ex
hausted every legal means to enforce
the mandate of congress in the matter,
It was generally acknowledged that the
act of congress "in regard to opening the
world's fair Sunday was couched in
language' sufficiently dubious to make
its intent doubtful, and that both those
who favored the opening of the fair
Sunday and those who were op
posed to it had plausible ground
to stand upon. It seemed to
him that the end had now been reached ;
though he was not entirely sure, not
having carefully examined the law, but
that an appeal should be taken to the
supreme court of the United States.
This, however, would seem to be use
less, as the court did not meet until
October, and before the case could be
heard in that tribunal the fair would be
closed by limitation. He could uot see
that any injunctions should bo thrown
in the way of opening the fair on Sun
day, but as the matter was in the imme
diate charge of United States Attorney
Milchrist and two able assistants, he
had no doubt that they would exhaust
every legal means known to law to up
hold the intent of congress. While he
saw no means in sight, perhaps those
who had been more intimately associat
ed with the case than he would yet
Other matters of a complicated char
acter, he said, would undoubtedly grow
out of this decision. For instance, the
donation of congress of $2,500,000 to the
fair had been coupled with the condi
tion that the fair could not opeu Sun
days. The decision of the court of ap
peals that the fair could be open Sun
day, and the well-known intent of the
local directory to open it Sunday
would seem to imply on their part
a disregard for the condition
upon which the money was granted.
The local directory had already re
ceived in round figures $1,900,000.
Could not the government, he asked,
now proceed by legal means to collect
the money advanced, as the condition
upon which it had been received had
been forfeited? It was certain to his
mind that the government could not
now give to the world's fair authori
ties the $000,000 still' retained in the
treasury, but which had been
appropriated upon certain conditions.
The condition was that security was
the $000,000 should be given. Up to to
day this money would have to have
been paid by the government had the
security been furnished. It had not
been furnished, aud so had been re
turned in the treasury. But now, in
view of the decision, even if the se
curity were furnished, the goverment
could not pay out the money to the
world's fair people. Doubtless
he woulß be confronted with
a proposition to take steps to recover
the $1,900,000 already paid out. He had
not yet seen the text of the decision,
or seen published the exact grounds
upon which the decision was granted,
and therefore he could not say what
course he would pursue. Perhaps the
gate money could be impounded to re
imburse the government. Still, he was
not entirely clear as to this, and would
have to consider the matter more in
Another question affected by the de
' cislon was the government exhibits.
All the departments of the government
had exhibits at the fair, and all the ap
propriations iryrde ; for them were
coupled with the condition that the ex
hibits should not be open on Sunday,
lt was entirely clear that the govern
ment exhibits could not be open on
Sunday, but the conditions imposed
might have gone further and might
prevent the government ;_ exhibits
ftom being open on any day. now that
it had been decided that lt "was legal to
open the world's .- fair Sunday. He
hardly thought, however, that the law
would bear this construction. Number
less other questions of minor importance
would come up, he said, for decision
aud action in view of the opinion ren
dered today by the court of appeals.

Berlin, July. 18.— The returns have
almost ceased coming in, although re
ports from thirty districts are still lack
ing. At 12 o'clock the army bill parties
and groups had 83 seats; the opposition
parties 85. All depends upon the second
ballots: The government has decided
to exert all its influence to induce all
the factions favorable to the bill to
unite against tho Richterists, Social
Democrats and Clericals in the bye
elections which will be held about
one week from tomorrow. Second bal
lots will be necessary, it is estimated, in
almost 200 districts. The returns re
ceived so far have not been complete,
enough to render possible accurate pre
dictions of the result. Of the thirty
four districts from which ali the figures
bearing on the second ballot have been
received.it appears certain that the Cler
icals will win 25, the Social Democrats 2,
the National Liberal?, Conservatives
and Agrarians 0, and the Particularisms
1. The Radical Unionists are expected
to gain several more seats. All day the .
Report* From the Constituencies
have continued to give evidence of the
collapse of Eugene Richter's Radical
party. The South German Democrats,
with whom the Richterists joined hands
at the opening of the campaign to fight
more effectively against the army bill at
the polls, have secured five seats, one
of them wod from the National Liberals,
and are likely to enter the next reichs
tag with their delegation increased
to fourteen or fifteen. Not a : dispatch
has been received to indicate that the
Richterists have carried a constituency
on the first ballot. The failure is due
partly to the fact that the Radicals who
deserted Richter to make a government
campaign uuder the banner of the Radi
cal Union were the cream of
the old party. Excepting Virchow,
hardly a conspicuous' deputy
stood by Richter after the dis
solution of the reichstag. Rickert,
Broemel, Hinze, Barth, editor of tho
Nation, Siemens and Han nei deserted
at once to the government. The dis
sidents are known to have elected two
deputies and to have the best chances
of electing seven or eight more on the
second ballot. The Richterists, who
constituted two-thirds of the parlia
mentary party of '07, will bring prob
ably few more than twenty men
into the new reichstag. This state of
affairs is distinctly
Favorable to the Government,
as the loss of the Radical opposition is
expected more than to counterbalance
the gains of the Social Democratic oppo
The anti-Semites are believed to be in
a way to procure twelve seats. Ahl
wardt and Ooeckel, the most blatant
members of the last parliamentary
group, have already beeu returued.
The aggregate vote - of the
anti-Semites has increased amazingly
since 1890. The National Liberals, ac
cording to latest reports, are likely to
return to Berlin with approximately
their old delegation of forty. The op
position Clericals under Dr. Lieber
have retained virtually all their
old constituencies, as far as can
be ascertained, and will return to
Berlin with probably nearly 100 depu
ties. The government Clerical-Agra
garian movement, under Freiherr
Scholemer-Alst and Freiherr you
Hoene, has shown few evidences of
success. Nine Independent Clericals
have been elected, but of this number
only^ve are declared advocates of the
army 4 Conservatives and Free Con
servatives, as was. expected, are suffer
ing no losses. They will enter the
reichstag with about eighty-five seats
together. The Social Democrats are
still triumphant at the expense of the
Richter Radicals. In general, the ad
Gained by the Government
are to be found'ln the prospect that
some ten Radical Unionists, who voted
against the army bill and who now
favor it, have good prospects of sitting
in the next reichstag, and that tho
anti-Semitic representation, partially
favorable to the government, bids
fair to be greatly increased.
If the National Liberals, Free
Conservatives and the Conservatives
make a binding cartel in all close dis
tricts, they will be able to rally 175
votes for the government at the open
ing of the . reichstag. . Both Chancellor
yon Caprivi aud Count Botho Zu Eul
enberg, Prussian minister president,
have been roused from their apathy
and have set the bureaucratic mac hi
nery of the government in operation to
this end. ..:'..
In calculating what accession of
strength the Socialists will gain in the fi
reichstag, the fact must be remembered
that the whole force of the party has
always hitherto been polled on the first
ballot, whereas other parties through
anti-Socialist coalitions show the great
est strength on reballot. It was thus
in 1890 when the Freisinnige party won
in all thirty-five of the reballots be
• tween them and the Socialists. About
eighty Socialists will stand in
The Coming Reballot*,
and it is a rational estimate to credit
them with securing twenty-six more
seats. Before the elections Herr Vol
mar, one of the sanest heads of the.
party, predicted that forty of his col
leagues would appear in the new reich
What ought to concern the govern
ment quite as much as the increase of
Socialists in parliament is the develop
ment of socialism throughout the coun
try. Chancellor Yon Caprivi held con
ferences with the emperor on Thursday
and again last evening, reporting to his
majesty the character of the returns. It
is rather significant that the semi-official
organs today recur to suggestions as to
how to curb the popular vote.
* ReganUdg tiJ : Centrists, the recent
schisnis do not appear likely to serious
ly affect their strength. The party may
lose fifteen seats and still remain in the
most solid party in the house. If, after
the reballot, the Centrists in ', favor of
the bill appear fifteen strong it will not
greatly affect the fighting power of the
main section of the party. Both the
Conservatives and National Liberals
are coming out better than it was ex
pected they would, both having to fight
numerous reballots. ....... -^... .....y
Against the Socialists. ;
These two parties must rely upon co
operation in order to defeat their com
mon enemy. The Natinil Liberals have
the best chauce in the rich manufactur
ing districts, like Elborfeld, Barmen..
Mannheim, Darmstadt and Boohum,
where they succeeded in pulling their
candidates through to a reballot.
The Socialist leaders purposed issu
ing directions giving .minute Instruc
tions as to how the members of the
party should vote on the reballot, but
decided today that broad moral prin
ciples alone should guide them In their
tactics. If • the candidates of the party
Who stand in the reballot pledge them
selves to resist attacks upon popular
suffrage and to oppose an in
crease of the army " and an In
crease of the taxation affecting
the masses, the Socialists may vote for
or against them, or, if they see fit. ab
stain from voting. The Socialists in
Vienna will make a demonstration in
celebratiou of the success of their Oer
man brethren. The Austrian official
papers hold that the results of the elec
tions are alarming. The Deutsche
Zeitting says: - '
"Oermany can only be saved by a
strong hand. It is time that Caprivi
should show that the future of Oer
many is safe in his care."

.England and France Would Wel
come a" Fall of Moisture.
London, June 17.— 1t has been a con-]
siderable time since rain of any conse
quence has fallen in Oreat Britain or,
France. The drought has caused much
damage and suffering. The great in
dustrial and manufacturing -center,
Manchester, is threatened with a water
famine, aud should this really occur it
would, aside from the distress it would
cause, entail a heavy loss on the mills. :
which use enormous quantities ot
water. In the greater part of Lanca
shire, in which county Manchester is,
situated, cattle, horses and sheep are
.suffering for food, the grazing grounds
being badly parched. In many places s
in the county the animals have been put
on short rations. Throughout the middle'
counties and Southern England the hay
crop is reported to be a total failure.
Peas have not podded and the vines are
being used as fodder. Vast areas of
vegetation are dead, and the loss . to
farmers will be very great.
In France the drought has prevailed
in four-fifths of ' the departments for
three months, and its effects during the
growing months of the year may be

DISQUIET IN PERU.
An Ex-President Planning .to
Overthrow the Government.
Lima, Peru, June 17. -The. political
situation in Peru is very discouraging.
Rumors of the proposed uprising by ex-
President Pierola, who is planning to
overthrow the present government and
proclaim himself dictator, have caused
alarm. Oreat Britain, through its min
ister, has summoned the warship Mel
pomene to Callao, and the government
of Chili, also alarmed, has ordered the
cruiser Almirante Cochran to the sea
port nearest the capital. Owing to dis
quieting rumors, commerce is alarmed,
trade paralyzed and the customs reve
nues diminished. The resources of the
government have been crippled by the
monthly payments of £5,000 to . the
Peruvian corporation under its contract.
An evidence of the intensity of * the
feeling was given this afternoon. Dr.
Barriga, editor of apolitical paper, was
shot in the. principal street in tins city.
He was not hurt, but two policemen
were wounded by. the shots fired. This
is the third attempt to assassinate Dr..

Washington, June 17.— Chairman
F. W. M. Cutcheon left for St. Paul this
afternoon feeling well satisfied with his
visit to the national capital. He was
received courteously by all the heads of
departments upon whom he called, and
went away with the impression that
good Democrats properly indorsed will
be treated with proper consideration as
far as the rules will permit. In regard'
to fourth-class postmasters, Mr. Cutch
eon has assurances that in cases where
incumbents have served four years
they will be succeeded by Democrats as
rapidly as the condition of the service
will permit. This is not a spoils ad
ministration and Republicans who
have managed their offices properly,
and who have not served four years,
cannot be got out on the simple charge
that they are Republicans. The Demo
cratic party at the present time has a
host of bright, active and broad-minded
Young Men at the Front,
of which class Mr. Cutcheon, Dan
Lawler, W. S. Hammond, Congressman
Hall, J. T. Hudson, D. T. Calhoun,
Judgo Theodore Bruener, Judge John
W. Willis. Frank Randall and a large
number of others are good examples in
Minnesota. A large number of this
class have been called to Washington
by the present administration, among
them Curtis and Whitney, of New
York; Hamlin and Quincy, of Massa
chusetts; Logan Carlisle, of Kentucky;
Frank Jones, of Illinois, and a score of
others. With this class of men the young
Minuesota leader has become a great
favorite. On this account, it is plain
that Mr. Cutcheon will be able to do a
great deal for the party at the national
capital. The Post today contained the
following interview with Mr. Cutcheon:
5* "Minnesota is one of the soundest
states in the Union on the financial situ-'
--ation. Democrats and Republicans are
united in advocating the repeal of the
Sherman law. and though there is a
good sprinkling of Populists who de
clare in favor of free silver in their
platforms, quite a number of them are
beginning to come over to the side of
honest money. 1 think the very best
thing that could be done would be the
unconditional repeal of the law, but if
some sort of compromise is needed, 1
would think it none too great a sacrifice
to agree to the repeal of the tax on stato
banks, if nothing else could be done
to reconcile the extreme advocates of.

retary Carlisle. The latter did not come
to "the treasury department, but, after
seeing several people at his residence by

FLEEING FROM TYPHOID.
Ironwood, Mich.. Being Depopu
lated Because of an Epidemic.
Ikonwood, Mich., June 17.— The pres
ent epidemic of typhoid fever which
now prevails here is the worst known
in/ the state. All the public schools
have been closed on account of the dis
ease, and all available buildings turned
into hospitals. Physicians are falling
sick themselves from overwork and loss
of sleep. The cases number over four
hundred now, and deaths aver
age from six. -to ten daily. All
steps taken so far to stop
the ravages of the disease have proved
ineffectual. All of the mines on the
Gogebic range are practically closed.
People are leaving by carloads every
day. Busiuess is entirely paralyzed.
Many citizens blame Supt. Souther?, of
the water works, for the bad water
which is causing the epidemic. It is
charged that he has not used filters tor
nine months. ' The feeling against him
is very high, and personal violence has
even been threatened in some quarters.

Contractor for the Ford's Theater
Alterations Held Responsible
for the Disaster.
Tho Government Also Came in
For Its Share of Con
WASHINGTON, June 17.— Contractor
George W. Dant . was severely con
demned by the evidence given today at
the coroner's inquest over the remains
of the Ford's theater victims, although
some of those : who gave testimony
against his methods spoke highly of his
ability as a practical .mechanic and
bricklayer. The United States gov
ernment also came In for its share of
condemnation for Its • method of doing
work. Several expert witnesses tes
tified that contractors did not care to
do work for the government. George
W. Jones, contractor and builder, said
the government did not want skilled
men to execute its contracts and it
would not pay a fair price for good
work. So condemnatory of Contractor
Dant's work beneath tho theater were
the statements of some of the experts ;
that the jurors made inquiries of the
witnesses giving this testimony as to
the state ot Mr. Dant's mind.
At the afternoon session J. It. Imbrec,
who was in charge of the second floor ;
in the old theater building, was exam
ined on matters affecting the conduct of
business in the record and pension
oilice. and Col. Alnsworth's relations to
his clerks. Mr. Imbrec requested that
he be allowed to testify tending to show
that Col. Ainsworth knew of the dan
gerous condition of the old building. To
bis knowledge, he said, the clerks were
not generally apprehensive of danger,
and no complaints had been made to him
in this connection. Such complaints
would, go through him to Col. Ains
worth. Mr. Imbrec said Col. Ainsworth
was a strict disciplinarian, and so was
Chief Freech, but the clerks were not
treated harshly except through the
operation of the strict discipline which
prevailed in the war department. Col.
Ainsworth was not different in his
treatment of clerks from other war
department officials. It was true
that there was not that confidence
between Col. Ainsworth and his clerks
that might have existed, but that could
not have prevented the clerks from
making their wants known, lie knew
of only one case where a man had com
plained. It was a defect In tho gas
pipe, and it had been remedied. A
youug electrician named Swan said he
had Inspected the excavation before it
collapsed, and it struck him that the
undermining was a poor piece of work.
Adjourned until Monday, when the in
quest will probably be concluded.
HIRED GIRLS BOYCOTT.
Aristocratic Ladies of a Chicago

Chicago. June 17.— hired girls
of tho aristocratic suburb, Evanston,
have boycotted a number of the most
prominent ladies of that suburb, and
not only will not work in the house
holds that are under the ban, but are
doing all they can to prevent places
being filled. It is stated this evening
that the domestic freeze-out is proving
most effective. The motive ot the
boycott is revenge. The hired gills are
getting back at the woman who tried to

some time ago by organizing the Evans
