Chicago, Sept. 4. The advocates' of a
closed World fair ou Suuday were given
ma atrdienee yesterday by the national
commission. To tha number of over 200
the dcU'i.".i!in, representing nearly every
state in the Union, atmbU'dat the Audi
torium hotel at 10 o'clock and marched in
procession to the city hall, the main coun
cil chamber of which had been placed at
the disposal of the commission. The dele
gation was herded by General O. O. How
ard; President Patton, of Princeton col
lege; Colonel Elliott F. Shepard; Dr.
George Elliott, pastor of the Foundry
Methodist church, of Washington; Bishop
J. P. Xiiirnian; T. S. Collin, representing
the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen of
America: Kev. T. E. Fernaily, of Phila
delphia; Kev. Dr F. C. Moutfort, of Cin
tinnati; President Scoville, ofWoostr,
O., university. Nearly every one of the
delegates was a divine or layman of na
tional reputation, aud nearly every de
nomination was represented. When the
delegation hail lieen introduced Colonel
Shepard read a long memorial on behalf
of the American Sabbath union urging
that thee m -i be closed on Suuday, and
called attention to the fact that over 1.5i0
petitions to the same effect, many of them
bearing several thousand names, were on
file. lie also- presented copies of resolu
tions p i-i-.' l.y various Sabbath observ
ance mot-tiiie4 iu different parts of the
Tbrnr of the Several Speakers.
Letter of indorsement from numerous
senators aud representatives and ninety
seven archbishop, bis'uops and priests
of the Koman Catholic and Prot
estant Episcopal churches were read.
Arguments were then made by
eight delcrrates in the following
order: Rev. Dr. F. F. Scoville, president
of the Wooster, O.. university, "The His
torie ide of the Question;" General How
ard, 'The Patriotic Side;" Dr. Fernley,
"Statistics of the Philadelphia Exposi
tion;" Bishop Newman, "The Civil As
pects of the Subject;" L. B. Coffin, "The
Interests of the Wage Workers;" Edward
F. Cragin, -The History of Former Ex
positions;" He v. Dr. F. L. Patton. "The
Biblical Arpnment;" Rev. Dr. P. S Hen
son, "Suggestions as to the Best Methods
of Spending Sunday." The delegation
was cordially received by the commission,
but it was announced that no action could
betaken until the local directory had
dealt with t lie subject. The latter body is
not expexied to approach the question un
til a coo pie of mouths liefoie the date
fixed for the opening of the exposition.
Gen. Howard's View of the Matter.
Uajor General O. O. Howard, ia speak
ing of the patriotic side, said: "Any his
toric character could be cited in support
of the observance of the Sabbath. Patri
otic hearts should show a spirit of obedi
ence to the precepts of good. Closing the
fair would show a becoming defereuce to
the wishes of the people." He quoted the
actions of ex-President Cleveland and
President Harrison forbidding United
States army bands playing on Sunday for
dancing and excursions.
DR. P. S. HENSON'S SPEECH.
II 9 js I-ast bnt Not Least and Creates
But the speech of the day was that of
Dr. P. S. Henson, of this city. His speech,
last on the programme, created more en
thusiasm than ail that had gone before.
He said in part: ''There is abroad a sinis
ter suspicion, a suggestion that we poor
ministers, have lieen stranded by the re
ceding tide of popular favor and, hard
pressed for congregations are looking for
ward with eager int' rest to the incoming
tide that the expoii:on will bring thereon
tolaunch out intothe deep sea. Laughter.
I Yieg leave to sttguest that, the ministers j
who are most earnest and urgent are not
the men who prcai h to empty pews. 1 1 j;
leave to sugctwt that our salaries are pro
vided for. Laughter. I beg leave to
suggest further, tiiat during the continu
ance of tiiis international exposition no
admission fee will lie charged at cur
sanctuaries. More l.-uigliter.J
Some rurther Suggestions.
"I beg leave Jo suggest further that in
so far as the fina:iri;il considerations are
concerned, our affairs are likely to be
greatly demoralized by the incoming
tiood that will possibly crowd out the men
whose bnsiness It ha lieen to take charge
of the treasury and look nfcer the pastor's
income. Hut, if crowded out, I venture
to suggest thitt it will not le amiss. We
are crowded alremiy with theology, and.
If a rest were tukeu fur six mouths, prob
ably we could be cured of theological dis
putations, and new room made in our
hearts after a season of rest. There is no
intention to compel the attendance of any
one upon our service. We do not propose
to corral the masses incur li t tie ecclesi
astical convensious. That is not our pur
pose at all.
What Shall We Do with Them?
"The question arises: What shall we do
with the masses that are accustomed, on
six days of the week, to surge in and out
of the exposition groundsf What shall
we do witu them and for them on the first
day of the-week, commonly called Sunday f
Let me say, suppose we don't do anything
with them; suppose we give them a rest.
Laughter and applause. I think they
will need it. Laughter. Sup
pose we don't let them do anything on the
seventh day. Suppose we just let them
sit still for one whole day, twirling their
thumbs and looking out into va
cancy, or inward into vacancy, where
we are more likely to find it.
Laughter. Would it not be healthy? If
they have a mind to go to church, let
them have a chance. Give the employes
of the exposition a chance to go to church
if they want to.
The Bigots of Minorities.
"There will be more than SU,0U0 of them
employed within the exposition gates
when the fair is opened. It may be said
that they are a minority and a great ma
jority want to have the entertainment
vt ihe exposition on that day.' 1 insist
1 I . ...i .'.'V i -1 '
that minorities bare some fights "which
b majority are bound to, respect. Ap
pTxus. ' I remember that in the time of
Rome they hml an exposition there which
iasted all the year through, where a mi
nority were employed to furnish the en
tertainment. They were the gladiators in
t he arena. In behalf of the minority who
have no voles in this commission I insist
t hat they do not be deprived of their day
... . .
"Behold the Man.' '
"'Thoughts are things'. and why should
there not tie in the nineteenth century an
xhibition other than that which is merely
Materialistic, and this commission should
riake provision for such an exposition.
Iet the thoughts of the world shine here.
lt the Brahiuin.tbe Bnddhist.the Moslem
ihilosopher, the Parsees and the Moham
medans, let them come, and on the plat
form let them show the best they have
got. Let the 'light of Asia' shine with all
i; 8 radiance, and then let the representa
t ves of the Christian civilization bring
forth one, the 'man of Nazareth.' and say,
as did his enemies 'Behold the man.'
Dtmsniii an American Snnslsy.
"When the final award shall be made
and premiums distributed and verdicts
rtndered I do not question but that the
vi rdict of the highest civilization, the no
blest minds, and all who shall be gathered
hi re will be that while-statesmen, philoso
phers and philanthropists and the repre
sentatives of other systems have been
heard, yet after all this man spake es
ne ver man spakef Truly this man was
none other than the Son of God. Let us
have an exposition worthy of a Christian
nation. This foremost Christian nation
of the nineteenth century. What we want,
wt at Americans demand, is an American
Sa jbath at an American exposition."
THE FATE OF A STOW-AWAY.
He Lives on Hay for Thirteen Days With
out a irrop of Water.
C'UEBFC, Sept. 4. The steamship Colina.
thirteen days out from Glasgow, had a
living skeleton on board when she arrived
in Quebec Tuesday. Leaving Glasgow,
two brothers named White went on board
and stowed themselves away. When two
days out one of the brothers showed him
self, and was immediately put to work in
the stoke hole. He inquired for his
bro'her, and when no trace of him could
be f 3und it was supposed that he had left
the steamer at Greenock, and no further
attention was paid to the matter. Wednes
day when the lower hatch was opened,
lytn between two bales of hay the al
most unsensible body of White was found.
Will Probably lie Demented.
H presented a horrible appearance,
and had a wisp of hay in his hand, which
he hid evidently been eatiug. When he
was carried ou deck he wis unable to
speas, and about a half pint of wine was
poured down his throat and he was put in
bed. After three hours be was just abie
to give the outline of his story. For
thirteen days he had nothing to subsist
on but hay, aittl aiot a drop of water to
cirink. His cries were not heard and n
woocen pin that be used in batterine the
hatches was almost worn away. The
docu rs say that he wiil probably never
recover his right mind.
LITERALLY BOILED TO DEATH.
Horrible Fate of a Unity Oning to Gross
Ignursnre anil 1 arelessiiess.
Petekboko, Out., Sept. . A shocking
affair has just come to light here. About
two weeks ago a 2 year-old child was at
tai kel with fits. While in a fit the old
fashioned remedy of putting the child
into a pan of warm water was tried. The
water was not sufficiently warm, so the
lid w;-s removed from the stove and the
pan with the child in it was placed on tt o
opening for the purpose of heating the
water. The child writhed in aguy, but
the woman in atteudance, deeming it the
result of the lit. paid no attention. Finally
tbe pan wts rt moved and when the child
was taken, cut of it the skin and f.esh
peeled off its body ia lan;e pieces. The
child died soon after. The authorities
are investigating the case.

A Tribute to Illinois Soldiers.
In tbe course of his address Governor
Fifer said: "The sons of Illvuois were here
as mother fields of that war to do con
spicuous and honorable service. You have
heard what par: they look from the lips
of a distinguished IHinois soldier who
then shared their perils and now shares
their honors. They were sons of Illi
nois, but they were in a broader
and better sense sous of the nation.
They were not here to fight for Illinois
alone; yet Illinois honors them, and all
the more for the great national cause they
so gallantly upheld. As citizens of the
great praitie suite we are proud to know
it was the virile bands of two citizens of
Illinois Lincoln and Grant that com
pleted the work of Washington and Ham
ilton, cemented forever the jostling frag
ments cf the Union and made the term
American citizen indeed 'the panoply aftd
safeguard of him who wears it. ' "
A NEW USE FOR WATER.
Efficacious as a Loral Anaesthetic in
BEKL1X, Sept. 4. Dr. C. L. Sleich, of
this city, has made aa interesting disccT
ery. He was conductingexperimeuts with
a view to determining how weak a solu
tion ef cocaine would prove efficacious as
a local anassthetic in minor surgical opera
tions, when he accidentally discovered
that simple water injected under the skin
with a syringe renders the flesh at that
point insensible to pain. The effect of the
water is to create a slight swelling resem
bling that caused by tha sting of a gnat.
The space marked by the swelling rem.iins

The method of procedure is very simple.

slowly emptied and a white blister ap

Of how much practical worth to sur

doctor laid the carbuncle open by cross
