MiLWarKKK, Sept 30. A girt with yellow
rurly hair stepped daintily out of the Kir by
bouse at noon Saturday and crept into a car
riage that stood near the curb. The carriage
waa drawn toward the lake shore, and
another runaway marriage was about to
take place. Tbe girt was Miss Jane 8.
McKinley, tbe daughter of J. B. Mc Kin ley
a real estate agent of Champaign, Ilia. Tbe
prospective groom was Orville W. Cannon
a son of W. B. Cannon, the wealthy banker
of Danville, Ilia. The banker's son was in
the carriage when the girl entered and the
vehicle stopped in front of the residence of
Rev. Stanley Lester, of St Paul's church.
Half an hour later the marriage ceremony
was performed by tbe rector and the run
sway couple returned to tbe Kirby house.
Miss Falter Gave Her a Pointer.
The love affair which terminated in Mil
waukee's most recent sensation began some
time ago. Mia McKinley fell in love wirh
the banker's son very easily, because be

A week ago tbe mother came lsu-k to Mil
waukee after being at her home for a month.
The daughter did not accompany her. In
the meantime the elopement had been
planned. Letters passed Let ween the lovers.
wnotboucbtit would be easier to fool tbe
old man alone than both of tbe girl's par
ents. Last Thursday evening young Cannon
went to see his sweetheart Fortunately tbe
ismer wss out, and a younger sister, named
Florence, was at borne alone. It was an
sasy matter to conciliate the sister and win

Tbe runaways lovers left Chan paign and

Kinley returned home and made the discov

broke down and confessed tbe whole storv.
and then Champaign's real estate agent was
angry. He danced around the railway sta
lion waiting lor a train, and his wrath
knew no bounds. He somehow bad a suspi
cion that his daughter was headed for Mil
waukee, and when Chicago was reached he
new to tbe Northwestern station. What
time be lost before starting ha now gained on
ine runaways, ror they were startled to

parlor car and gave tba porter a handful of

old gentleman rode on tba same train

another obstacle presented itself. The old
man was on tbe tram and a discovery would

and tbey climbed dow n on one side of tbe
train while tbe stern parent slid off on tbe
other to hasten to bia wife and tell bar of tba
family troubles. He took one carriare and
toe runaways took another.

Cbicaoo, Sept 30. CoL Frank A. Burr,
tbe well-known New York newspaper cor
respondent, was at the Palmer tbe other
day. "I came out here," be said, "chiefly to
write some letters from Chicago to tell New
York what you are doing about tbe World's
fair. Tbe idea was to stir the Naw-Yorkers
up to a realisation of the fact that if tbey
don't stop quarreling and at once go to work
they will lose all chance of getting tbe fair.
It is really surprising to note with what de
gree of unanimity Chicago has gone to work
to get tbe fair. Nobody is quarreling about
site or anything connected with it Tbe sole
and single purpose seems to be to get., tbe
fair, and settle the details afterward and
pursuing that policy I am frank enough to
say I believe Chicago will win."
Tammany Is In the Way.
"Then you have little faith in the Nw
Yorkers, eh f
"When it comes to getting up fairs, no. If
you will ln,ten a moment I will toll you why
New York will be left out of the con
gressional calculation, in the fin-t place
New York is a great big Democratic city
ruled by Tammany halL Her Democratic
supremacy is assured for all time to come.

much. And for the vry same reasons the
rich Republicans of N -w York are slow to
take bold of the enterprise.
T.Mt Mnrh Fuss and No Money.
Item N.x 2 Like fools the promoters of
tbe exposition scheme have got to quarrel
ing among themselves over a site and other
details before tbey have raise.! a dollar of
money or made the tirst advance toward
getting the fair. Thev are quarreling over
who shall be this officer and w ho shal 1 be
that, and by such silliness are frittering

does be care about the exposition f Of what

so tlieving be hasn't a dollar to nut in it.
That is the feeling of all rich and fashionable

"Item Na 4. New York has neither a
suitable site nor the proper means of reach
ing one if be bad it Her present intramur
al transportation facilities are crowded now
to the utmost Two or three transporta
tion comianies control every inlet from
abroad, and that whole neck of wools be
tween Spuyteo Duyvel creek and Castle
Garden is already so crowded that not a
place available could be found anywhere.
Tbe present idea is to locate tbe fair in Cen
tral park. If that idea is adhered to it
wdl burst the scheme wide open. The law
prevents it, and a special act of the legisla
ture wii oe necessary to put it there. Again,
more than half of New York will bitterly re-s-nt
and oppose such use of Central park.
No, tbe exposition, I am frank to sav, will

will grieve leas than tbe New Yorkers them
