Chicago, May?. Anglers of all classes,
from the small boy with his pin-hook,
string Hue and hickory pole, to the sal
mon fisher togged out for battle with the
gam est of the watery tribe, are to be rep
resented in the World's fair fisheries ex
hibit. Professor Joseph W. Collins, chiel
of the department, has issued his classifi
cation and prospectus, and a glimpse of
its contents is enough to make any sports
man resolve to see the exhibit next year il
he has to lose his vacation this summer to
do it. Big fish, little fish, salt water fish,
and fresh, from a tadpole up, and from
dummy whale down all the denizens of
the water are to be there. Then there
will be tackle of all kinds, the apparatus
Used in commercial fishing, demonstra
tions of all the processes used in canning
and drying, and progressive selections
showing how the science of angling ha
developed since Columbus landed on the
shores of the new world. Altogether it
will be a display calculated to make old
Izaak Walton wander back to earth again,
spirit fashion, just to see how his beloved
pastime has grown into one of the great
departments of modern commerce and di
Home of the Exhibit.
The home of all these finny features is
one of the most beautiful certainly the
most unique of all the exposition halls.
It was designed by Henry Ives Cobb and
shows fitness for its purpose that makes
one suspect the architect of being mi ang
ler himself. In floor plan it consists of
central rectangular structure 303 feet
long by 163 feet wide, except in the center,
where the extreme width is 243 feet. On
either side of this central hall are two
polygonal pavilions 165 feet wide, one de
voted to aquaria, the other to collections
of angling aparatus from all over the
world. The aquarial building lies east ot
the main hall; the angling hall west, od
the shores of the lagoons.
Trn Large Tanks of Fish.
Both are connected with the main ex
hibit building by curved arcades beauti
fully decorated in staff and after design
by Mr. Cobb. The aquarial building is
equipped for the exhibit of live fish. Id
the center is a rotunda sixty feet in diame
ter, with a middle basiu thirty feet wide.
A mass of rocks covered with moss and
lichens hides the fountains, which spray
through crevices, dropping in showers id
the basin below. Here will be the home
of the goldfish, golden ides, golden tench
and other ornamental fish, as well as
aquatic plants. Grouped around the
rotunda are the ten large tanks contain
ing the fresh and salt water fish, each
tank with a capacity of from 7,000 to 27,000
gallons of water.
PROGRESS OF WORK AT THE SITE.
Bain Delays Operations Tronble With
the Worklngmen Notes.
Only three working days smiled on
Jackson park this week and the average
progress on the work is correspondingly
small. Although the rainfal has been tre
mendous the drainage on the sandy site
is good, and the weather has occasioned
but little inconvenience. The strike of
the iron workers on the manufactures
building was broken Tuesday and the
work of erecting the big trusses was
begun on that afternoon. The number of
dayB the strike continued does not repre
sent the same number of days lost on the
work, for during the strike, although the
contractors had no lofters or climbers, the
forty men remaining framed up trusses,
drove pile foundations for the traveler and
did much other work that will expedite
erection in the future. The week close;
with no labor troubles of any Bort in sight
Archbishop Elder's Idea.
A tel egram from Chicago says that Arch
bishop Elder, of the Roman Catholic
church, says as to the opening of the fail
on Sunday: "I can see no objection to
throwing open the collections of art and
nature, if the machinery departments are
kept closed and if the men whose presence
is absolutely necessary for the conduct of
the exposition are given certain hours off
if they so desire. The world will be
better if people are allowed to walk
through t he fair grounds on Sunday and
look at the matters of interest gathered
from the four quarters of the globe. An
additional reason for opening is the fact
that Sunday will be the only day that
many workingmen can attend without se
rious inconvenience to themselves and
The Exhibit From Colombia.
Lieutenant Lemly reports from Bogata
that the commission appointed by the
government of Colombia has sent out an
expert through the mining districts of
i Antioquina and Tollma to make a collec
tion of minerological specimens for the
Chicago exposition. The commission has
, also bought a most valuable and com
: plete collection of native birds belonging
to Sir. Calos Belen, which will be sent,
and there is no doubt that a fine collection
will be selected from the national museum
to be displayed at the Columbian exposi

AN ALL-AROUND SCOUNDREL,
Life and Adientures of One Thomas La-
crolx Briefly Told.
Pbovidexc?, May 14. Thomas Lacroix
has been taken to Lowell from Bowenville,
Mass., to serva out a sentence for obtain
ing money tinder false pretenses. La
croix's career in Bowenville is something
startling and before he serves his term
in Lowell a dozen other charges will
doubtless hav; been brought against him
by the grand jury. Lacroix is a French
man and comtg from Sherbrooke, Canada.
He began his career by watching at the
bedside of a sick friend. While the pa
tient was sleeping Lacroix helped himself
to a gold watcli and a silver watch. Then
he took a hor and buggy and started
for the states. He was captured before he
crossed the line. After thathe Mid time"

In that city 1 e was convicted of obtain
ing money on f.dse pretenses and sentenced
to twelve moi.ths on two counts. Al
though he left a wife and two children
behind him in Canada, he began arrang
ing plans in qi.ick succession to marry a
good many women. He began by court
ing a Globe village girl whose mother
loaned him 3&l to settle up an imaginary
estate. This girl was to meet him at the
Ferry street station and they were to
marry en route for the north. She did
meet him, but be had a fit and could not
start. Lacroix then decame engaged to a
damsel in Flint village. She loaned him
a ring which he presented to a maiden in

DEFENDING THE COLOR LINE.
Manifesto of Sot thern Students at the
Tale Law School.
Kew Haven, Cmn.. May 14. The re
fusal of Lebbeas L. Wifley, of Mexico,
Ma, the highest n an in his class at Yale
law school, to debate for the Way land
prize against James R. Spurgcon, of
Richmond, Va., on the ground of color, is
condemned by the majority of Yale men.
Wifley 's friends ha -e issued a manifesto
signed "Southern Students in which they
say: "It does not si -em to occur to New
England people thitt there is a marked
distinction in the a roth between a colored
man and a white one, that the races move
in entirely separate spheres and are edu
cated in separate sc lools.
The "Social Line" Universal.
"The social statu) of the white is not
confined to the draw ing-room. It extends
to the church and the school. The so
cial line is drawn no more severely than
in the 'home of abol: tion;' it is only drawn
in another place. It the case of the young
man from Missouri i he circumstances are
no different from tht se of any other young
man who was born aid bred in the south.
He is a man of princ pie and moral cour
age. He is not willii g to stultify himself
by engaging in acont est that he would not
engage in in his own home and in the pres
ence of his family an I friends. Any other
course would show la ek of moral stamina."

WILL BE GIGANTIC.
The- Lockout of Stone Workers
4 HUNDRED THOUSAND INVOLVED.
the Hosts of Powderly and Gompers
United In the Struggle and Backed
by Plenty of Funds The Other Side
Represented by the New England
Quarry Owners Who Supply Stone for
the Whole Country All the Associated
New York, May 14. One of the most
gingantic labor struggles in this country
threatens to start today if the New Eng
land quarry-owners carry out their an
nounced intention to shut down the
whole of the quarries which they control,
and there is at present no indications that
they wiil waver. Just how many men will
be affected it is hard to say until it is
known how many owners fulfill their
threat, but a representative of the Granite
Cutters' union said yesterday that if the
lockout continued one week there would
be 100,000 men in idleness as a result.
Knights and Federation United.
These quarry owners supply stone for
all the large buildings as far west as Chi
cago and Kansas City, and while they
have been talking lockout the unions
have been securing the indorsement of the
building trades of the large cities. As
soon as the lockout is ordered they threat
en to drop the defensive and make such
an attack by ordering strikes on these
buildings that within a few - days the
quarry owners will wince. Both the
Knights of Labor and American Federa
tion of Labor are one in this struggle and
have thrown aside their petty differences
for a time to stand ehoulder to shoulder in
The Grant Monument Involved.
The board of walking delegates of the
building trades in this city and the build
ing trades section of the Central Labor
union have pledged their assistance, as has
also the board of walking delegates of
Brooklyn. The men on two buildings
have already been called out, and the
building trades section has notified all its
affiliated unions to withhold their con
tributions from the Grant monu i.ent un
til a committee it has appointed waits on
General Horace Porter an J obtains an as
surance that until the lockout is broken no
more stone for the monument will be re
ceived from the Union Granite company,
of Friendship, Me., which is one of the
the chief concerns in the combine.
Works That Will Have to Stop.
Besides a number of buildings that will
be affected in this city, including the addi
tion to the Mutual Life building on Nas
sau street, strikes are also threatened on
the state capitol in Albany, where 450 men
are said to be employed, the national
library in Washington and the Reading
terminal in Philadelphia. The stonecut
ters have already struck at the Betz build
ing in Philadelphia because Booth Broth
ers were supplying the stone.
Six Thousand Already Out.
There are now about 6,000 men locked
out in the quarries of Stony Croek, Conn.:
HallowelL Vinal Haven, Hurricane Island
and Friendship, Me.; Cape Ann and Red
Stone, X. H.; Darre and West Dummer
ston, Vs.; Rockport Me., and Haverhill,
Mass, Among the places expected to be
locked out today are Quincy and Bay
View, Mass.: Westerly, R. I.; Millstone
Point, Conn.; Niantic, R. L; Montpelier,
Vt; West Sullivan and Mount Waldo, Me.
The Unions Flash of Funds.
It is calculated that 6,000 granite cutters
and 5,000 quarrymen, together with the
blacksmiths and banker men, will be
stopped tonight, making a total of about
20,000 men locked out. All these unions
are very powerful, with large reserve
funds, and a determined resistance will be
made. The Granite Cutters' union has
14,000 members, and the national secre
tary, Josiah B. Dyer, has sent word to the
local union to stand firm and fight.
Will Even Invade the Cemeteries.
One curious feature of the strike is the
necessity it will create for calling all the
stone workers out in monumental yards
which surround the several cemeteries.
They are working night and day to com
plete their work before Decoration Day,
but it looks inevitable that many graves
will have to be decorated without head
stones. A Murderous Crook Convicted.
MATTOOJ.-,Ills.,May 14. Frank W. Horn-
ish. the inventor who in December last
made a desperate and almost successful
attempt to assassinate Judge Horace S.

tiary. Hornish declared he would kill Judge
Clark and several other prominent citizens

Lastest Alleged Meaning of the Papal
Decision as to the Faribault System.
Milwaukee, May 14. The truth about
the report of the cardinals on the
matter of the Faribault plan, according to
information just received from Rome,
is that the commission of cardi
nals gave the following decision,
April 29 on the Faribault Bystem,
which however, still t. awaits the
approval of the Holy Father: The so
called "Faribault system" as system is
condemned and prohibited in practice.
As regard the two parishes of Fari
bault and of Stillwater, viewing
the present conditions and contin
gencies, as also un fait accompli
"tolerari posse," but only for those two
cases not to be extended to another par
ish in the limits of the archdiocese of St.
Paul; not to serve as a precedent to any
other province or bishopric throughout
the United States. Furthermore, the
"tolerari posse" in the two cases above
named is accompanied with such condi
tions relative to the text books, the
teachers, the surveillance of the parish
priest, etc., as are calculated to secure the
faith of the children.
Bought Land by the Square Mile.
Sault Ste Marie, Mich., May 14. The
Perry Lumber company yesterday bought
IK square miles of Canadian Indian re
servation land about forty miles above

dition to this there will be the timber
royalties which make the deal reach into
millions. The timber on the land is pine,
spruce and cedar.
