The f ailu re of the Hill folk to carry things

The claim set forth for Cleveland, he said,

that, thetefore, he should be nominated in
spite of New York.

Coins and the Appropriation Wonder
Chicago, May 21. Among the sculptors
in fact in the van who are putting into
form their choicest designs for the beauti
Qcation of the fair grouuds and buildings
Is Frederick MacMonnies, who is at work
n the grand fountain, the central work
bf sculpture on the ground. MacMonnies
was appointed to the task on the huggei,
tion of August St. Gaudens, who advisd
with him from time to time during the
two years he has spent in study of t he sub
ject. - The result is a magnificent design,
conceded to be great in conception, finish
ed in treatment and in every way worthy
of the great event H is to commemorate.
The fountain, which ' is being executed in
bronze at Paris, is, in form, a triumphal
barge, guided by. Time and heralded by
Fame, and rowed by eight figures. -
-. Description of the Work. '
Four of these figures are rowing on one
side of the barge and represent the arts;
the four rowers on the other side of the
barge represent science, industry, agricul
ture and commerce. Preceding the barge
are eight sea horses, forming a semi-circle
in front and typifying modern commerce.
The basin is circular, 150 feet in diumetur
and flanked by columns fifty feet in
height, surmounted by eagles. All the
proportions of the design verge on the co
lossal. The smallest figure is twelve feet
in height and the largest twenty-six feet.
The cost of the fountain is to be $53,000,
and it will occupy the center of the grand
basin in the lagoon in front of the admin
istration building, the keystone of the
whole architectural scheme of the exposi

ing. THE QUESTION OF DATE.
A Movement to Put off the Dedication
to Oct. SI.
ine Worm s fair committee on cere
monies is discussing the propriety of chang
ing the date of the dedication in order that
the World's Columbian exposition may
not interfere with or in any way mar the
delights of the marine display to be made
in New York harbor on that day. The
New York assembly fixed the date of the
New York display on Oct 12, and made
$50,000 appropriation. The United States
congress, unnstopner uoiumbus and a
kind wind also fixed Oct. 12 as the date of
dedication for the exposition. The inter
ference thus arising has grieved many
Cbioagoans, and a change of date has
Theory of the Movement.
The theory of this movement is that the
date Oct. 12, 1492, actually corresponds
with the date Oct. 21, 1892, because of the
different calendars in use at that time and
this. The matter will probably be ad
justed, but if the date is changed it will
have to be done by congress, which has al
ready set Oct. 12 as the day of dedication,
and a request would have to be made by
the exposition authorities to that effect.
There is no particular objection to the
change in this city and if congress does
not object it can be easily, arranged.
Those Souvenir Coins.
The arguments ot Mr. Gage and Di
rector General Davis to the house World's
fair committee are believed to have favor
able disposed that body to the appropria
tion of $5,ooo,ouo to the lair. The latest
plan to issue the sum in silver souvenir
coins 10,000,000 half dollars looks well to
those who infist that there is not enough
money in circulation. It is a matter of
consideration whether the coins are to be
made ot old bullion or of worn coins now
in circulation. '
A WONDERFUL CLOCK.
It Gives a Novel Performance Every Fif
teen Mlnntea. .
A dock that will come for exhibition at
the fair from Warsaw, Poland, is an in
genious contrivance. It is the result of
six years ot earnest work by a watch
maker named Gold fad en, In Warsaw. It
represents a railway station, with waiting
rooms for travelers, telegraph and ticket
offices, an outside promenade and a foun
tain In operation. .Alongside of the sta
tion aie seen the tracks, ' with signal
booths, switches and water reservoirs in
fact, everything belonging to a European
railway station. In the dome of the cen
tral tower of the building is a clock show
ing the local time, while in each of two
other towers there is a clock giving the
tive, respectively, of New York and Pekin.
Here Comas tho Train! .
In both of the towers, last mentioned, a
calendar and barometer are seen. Every
quarter of an hoar it gets lively at the sta
tion. First the telegraph operator does
his work issues the telegram to signify
that the track is clear. Then the doors of
the building are opened; the station-keeper
I and his assistant appear on the platform
1 at the ticket office the cashier is notice
able; the guards leave the signal booths
and hoist the barrier; a long row of pas
sengers is observable in front of the ticket
office; baggage is hauled; one of the guards
rings bell and a train runs into the sta
It Arrival and Departure
While the whistle of the locomotive is
blown the train stops; a workman goes
along the row of coaches and hits ih
axles with a hammer, while another one
pomps water into the water-tank of the
locomotive. After a third signal with
the station-bell the train starts and
disappears in a tunnel on the opposite side.
The station-keeper and his assistant leave
the platform and the doors of the depot
building are closed the guards enter theli
booths and quiet reigns. After fifteen
minutes the same trouble commence!

One of the features of the Irish exhibit

Single Tax Congress and Other Matters.
An international congress of single tax
people will be held in Chicago next yeai
under the auspices of the World's fait
auxiliary. Louis F. Post, of New York,
chairman of the national committee of the
Single Tax league of the United States, is
chairman of the general committee oi
arrangements, and he has appointed
Warren Worth Bailey, president of the
Chicago Single Tax club, and the Illinois
member of the single tax committee, to
the chairmanship of the local committee
Mail advices from Japan recently re
ceived state that the Japanese government
will sena an exhibit to Chicago that will
weigh a total of 1,750 tons. The total
weight of the articles exhibited at Phila
delphia was 425 tons. It seems to be defi
nitely decided that the emperor of Japan
will visit Chicago during the exhibition.
Such a visit would be unprecedented in
the annals of this country.
ine nest pieces of comparative sculp
ture from the famous Trocadero palace in
Paris are to be reproduced by the French
government and sent to the World's fair.
They will be kept in Chicago for all time.
The executive committee of the exposition
has decided this.

The Big Sioux Booming. j
St. Loris, May 2L The downward
tendency of the river has been stopped by
the influx of the first of the water which
fell all over the Missouri and Mississippi
valleys on Wednesday. The gauge then
registered 35.6 feet, a fall of .fttur-tenths of
foot in twenty-four hours.- According
to the weather bureau the river will com
mence rising in the morning. A three
foot rise is coming down both rivers and
it is only a matter of conjecture as to the
height the river Affre will go. It is ad-
mii-wca mat a me ot at least
six inches may be expected within
two days, while the water may go to 87
feet before it goes down. Conservative
estimates place the loss within a radius of
twenty miles of Su Louis at tiO.000, 000.
This is divided as follows: St. Louis city,
$1,000,000; St. Louis, county, $3,000,000; St.

Sioux CiTT, la., May 2L Another flood

by the Milwaukee and St. Paul road as
having reached Elk Point, where it forms
a wave several feet high. The river there
has risen twelve feet in a few hours. For
miles up the valley is reported covered by
water, and the stream two miles wide.
The wave will do little damage to the
city as its banks are given up to parks.
Great damage has been done to farms and
villages up the valley, but reports are

Letter from Gen. Grant to Conklia
True Position of the General as to
New York, May 21. Hon. J. S. Clark
son arrived here yesterday. He was visit
ed during the day by a large number of
prominent Republicans. Late in the day
when he had rested from the fatigue of
travel he consented to see and talk with
newspaper men. He is evidently very con
fident that Secretary Blaine will be the
next Republican nominee for president.
Asked his opinion as to Blaine's physical
condition Clarkson said: "I have not seen
Mr. Blaine since February last. At that
time he was in a state of health, physical
ly and mentally, that would warrant his
accepting a nomination. From what lean
learm he has been getting better ever since.
His health is certainly a factor that will
not hinder him from becoming the nom
inee Says 7,000,000 Want Blaine.
"As to the probability of his being nomi
nated I can say that it is the earnest desire
of nearly 7,000,000 of Republicans to see
him their candidate for president. In fact
Mr. Blaine can no longer be considered as
a mere party candidate. During my trip
abroad last summer the name of Blaine
was spoken of by Americans, whether Re
publicans or Democrats, with the same
feeling of national pride that the Germans
spoke of Bismarck, or the Englishmen of
Gladstone. I believe that if Mr. Blaine
should die tonight every American would
regret that he had never lived to be presi
Blaine Still a Candidate.
"I do not Itelieve that Mr. Blaine wants
the nomination, but he is still a candi
date in the sense that he has never with
drawn in the minds of the people. He has
been the ideal candidate for the past
twenty years, and today would be more
representative of the popular feeling than
any man living." Clarkson attaches great
importance to the work of the Republican,
league of clubs of which he is president.
He said he expected great things from
them during the coming campaign. He
stated emphatically that Boies, if nomi
nated by the Democrats, could not carry
Iowa, as it was naturally a Republican
state. He was ot the opinion that almost
any Republican would win this fall.
GRANT NOT A THIRD TERM MAN.
A Letter to Conklln from the "Old Com
Columbus, O., May 2L The Columbus
Evening Despatch is in possession of a
letter written by General Grant to Senator
Conklin in May, 130, just prior to the Re
publican convention. The letter has never
been made public and, In fact, ' its exist
ence was unknown. The letter saysi "The
tribute you pay my services to the country
I appreciate, but at the same time I fear
you over-estimate my services and under
estimate the indulgence of our country.
Didn't Believe in Third Terms.
"There have been exigencies that war
ranted a second term, bnt I do not be
lieve that the best interests or the coun
try's good ever demand a third term or
ever will. I had my doubts even as to tne
advisability ot a second term, and you
know that I have so expressed myself to
you in our confidential talks."
Would Decline If He Spoke.
After saying that in view of all the hon
ors presented him by his country he felt
that it would be an act of ingratitude to
accept the nomination for a third term,
the general said that he was still of the
opinion that if he should speak to the
country that he should break the silence
in a letter declining emphatically to 1
cept a nomination for a third term.
Suddenly Attacked by Strikers.
Cleveland, May 21. A gang of Slav
section hands, employed by the Lake Shore
railroad, struck here Wednesday, and yes
terday their places were filled by a lot of
Italians. While the latter were at work
in the eastern part of the city they were
suddenly attacked by the strikers, .who
were armed with clubs and stones. The
Italians escaped as soon as possible by
running, but not until two of them had
been badly hurt. Phillip Dombrosio, one
of the Italians, is in a dangerous condi
tion. , No arrests have as yet been made.
