Leaislativf Discussion of ihe
World's Fair. '
What I' art the State of Illinois Uusht
I'reperly Takr Ctnmrnl on
the .Appreptiatian Craw,
ferd 4 rain.
Spedsgfirld, April 22. The world's
fair with iia hopes and fears, its certain
ties and uncertainties, its penis and its
generals, its committees and its managers
and even its Secietarr Couzins, is creat
ing a good deal ot noise throughout the
state, and outside of Chicago, no place in
that respect can bold a candle to Spring
field. There is money in the business
and somebody wants to get a cinch on the
ducats, but just bow to manage it is a
puzzling question. It bad generally been
conceded all along until recently that tbe
legislature would make an appropriation
ot the most liberal character a million at
least not only to set a good example to
other states, but to provide an ample
fund for all the purposes of the exhibi
tion. It was not the intention that tbe
appropriation should ba used just because
it was appropriated, but that in case of
emergency or to meet any exigency that
might ante, the money should be availa
ble. It was proposed, too, that the state
board of agnculiure should have charge
of tbe Etate's exhibit and to do whatever
it tboueht necesswy in the premises, and
the majority of people locked upon this
as a Diece ot wisdom, when, lo and be'
hold: one fine morning Representative El
Merritt latroiucei his tml asking an ao
propriation of $-.0X for the purpose
and that the vthule matter be taken cut of
the hands of the board of agriculture and
placed in those of a number of emmis
sioners appointed for that purpose.
What"s the matter with tbe agricultural
bo&rd? is bticg asked by a good many
is u not created tor just sucn pur
posts, but perhaps cn tot quite so
Urge a scale? It is a non-political
body of 22 members. a3 almost antbouv
knows, one for each of the different con
gressional districts of the state as well as
its two United States senators. The ex
hiUt of the state wiil bo principally ssjri
culture, horticulture acd kindred affairs
everything pertiiciog to the produclioa
'f the soil, including live stock, itc. The
priHiucis oi me mines, tuneiner cosi or
o'hcrw ise, es well us geological displays,
w ul hdu'ed, of course, and it is to these
tht Illinois wiil point with pride Her
mfccbintrv, sgrieuitural and a:l otter, wiit
be closely allied to those, including manu
factory nf every description, and in fact
a:l matters and thugi of the most practi
c'. atd lesst estLetic kind. It is not ex
pected that the world wi:i stand in awe
at the art display of Llinois, btt hat
ever sbe maT do in that respect or any
other it at the state board would not be
supposed to be thoroughly or sufficiently
COLvenaat with, the intention is and has
been all along to appoint proper persocs
to take such matters in charge, just as
the geological, educational, historical and
other departments of tbe state are in the
care of competent hands at present.
Others might be added whenever tbe oc
casion demanded, but all nevertheless to
be under the general supervision of tbe
board. That is practical and sensible, is
if cot? But then the cry was raised that
this large appropriation would go into
the hands of this so ciTed irresponsible
body acd they would squander it at its
own seet wil'. Lt us see. The money
would still be ia tbe hands of Treasurer
Wilson and every dematd made upon tbe
appropriation wourd have to pa5s through
the bands of tLe governor, and auditor
and Secretary Garrard, and the Lord
! onlv knows how many others, to be ex
amined, scrutinized and approved before
, one dollar couM be called forth. The
board is composed of nine democrats and
thir eea republicans, but politics is never
rnenii nen or ninteu oi even. There is
so much ignorance of the politics of each
oiber that some of them who have been
serving together for years never took in
terest enough to find out, and sometime
ajo wnen fcecretaty arrard made it
known to a member that he wai a dyed
in-the-wool democrat, the member said
i. was the ilrst time he had ever given the
matter a thought. But further, EJ Mer
ritt's bill asks that the appropriation of
500,000 be placed in the hands acd at
the disposal of a man who would bs un
der a bond of $50,000 only!
Ii is not likely that Merritt's measure
will ever be filled, but instead that the
legislature. will grant the million dollars
asked for and the whole matter of tbe ex
bibit placed in the hands of the state
Some are inclined to think that the
session will last some six weeks longer as
there is so much business of importance
that demands immediate attention, while
others incline to the feeling that after
some matters of absolute necessity have
received the requisite attention that the
state's law makers should put up the
abutters, lock the door, make for the
'rain and show their passes to the con
ductor. There is a big chunk of wisdom
n the latter idea.
Statesman Crawford, from your diss
'net, introduced a bill in tbe senate to
iiay to assist farmers in holding county
institutes for educational purposes; also
lo develop the agricultural resources of
this state, and for appropriating moneys
t herefor. You can see by this how that
man is developing. His breadth of men
tal grasp sees the necessity of tbe farmers
Incoming educated. Look at the lofty
t eights I have scaled, he can say to his
I rotber agriculturalists, b'gosh. A ram
I ant republican paper here said last week
taat Crawford meant well, and tbe Rock
Island senator was so -overcome that te
lurried down to the office and laid a pen
ny on the editor's desk and said he would
s ;e him later. F. J. D.

The fteanale Pedestrian HIsaea Her
Husband t be nt the Last Hament.
Zoe Gay ton. tbe pedestrian, wbo spent
a dsy in Rock Island on her way through
here last winter on her tramp from 'Fisco
to New York, and who has been posing
as a dime museum curiosity since ac
complishing the feat of .tramping tbe dis
tance, has had the customary romance.
The New York World says:
L&rge and brilliant posters hare receut
ly flooded tbe town, bearing the interest
ing information that Miss Zoe Gay too. tbe
pedestrian, and J. L. Price, one of her
companions, would be married this week
on the stage at Huber'a Museum, where
they have been exhibiting since tbe com
pletion of their tramp from 'Frisco.
The ceremony was to have been per
formed at noon yesterday, but at that
hour both bride and bridegroom were con
spicuously absent and the crowd was
obliged to be satisfied with an extra per
formance by tbe sna&e charmer and tbe
iron jawed man.
Meantime Miss Gavton was at tbe Ash
land house and Mr. Price well, nobody
knew where he was. .
Unfortunate! for the novelty of the
scheme Mr. Price and Zoe has been pre
viously married in Denver aim jst a year
ago, but as this fact wonld somewhat
spoil tbe romance of tbe affair it was not
divulged. Mr. Marshall. Miss Gat ton's
manager, bad been with her for twelve
years. Mr Price, her husband, had long
thought his further presence in the family
circle unnecessary, and the monotony of
life was varied by frequent quarreh be
tween the two men. List 'lues lay, im
mediately after he hai signed the con
tract, Mr. Price came into Z)e's dress
ing room acd asked her to go wish him to
dinner. She did not care to go and
frankly said so, whereupon he made a
dramatic exit firs', however, borrowing
Z e has never seen him since, and
neither has any other member of the cir
e'e in which he has recently moved
When it dawned upon tbe museum man
that Price di 1 not intend to ret lrn, and
that tte "wedding" was indefinitely post
poned, be declared the contract "off,"
ana re'iised to pay any money to either
Zo or Marshall. The pedestriaos have
not appeared at the museum since last
".Miss" Zip says her huband may
have gone to his brothers in Caicago, but
others think that he is in hiding in this
city. He is sail to have had $200 with
him when he left the museum, and "Miss"
Zoe hinted vesterday that he had a large
sized '"jag" on somewhere.
