View of the Sunday closing amendments
proposed, to say nothing of the slash of
$7,000 off his salary, Director General
Davis would seem to have a good deal to
worry him. But he doesn't look worried.
Regarding the Sunday closing amendment
he says: "The action of congress in order
ing the government building closed on
Sunday does not arue that the whole fair
is to be closed. The government has
merely exercised its own right aud said
when its own shop shall be open and
when it is to be closed."

right," he said, "aud everybody those

THE BR1GGS CASE IN HAND.
After Much Discussion the Moderator

Portland, Ore.. May 2$. The Preshyte- 3i9ic. cWe.l Peri
ran assembly spent most of yesterday on
tue xnggs case wiiuuui iutA.mg uiutu

ble caused some criticism as a spectacular
demonstration. Briggs and his friends
argued that the case should be sent to the

had been proposed in congress prohibiting
open gates on Sunday, the sale of liquor
and conipelling the statuary to be clothed.
What He Told the Methodist.
"My position on these questions is clear
ly understood," the director general said.
"I told the Methodist clergymen at Omaha,
and I told the gentlemen at Washington.
'Are yon going to open your fair on Sun
day?' they asked. 'Would you have
the assembly pro forma, and the case sent
j back to New York. The committee on
prosecution insisted on the case being tried
y the assembly. The Briggs men declared
that the gag law was applied, and there
were a number of acrimonious remarks,
but the moderator finally decided that the
case must go on.

Keep Sunday Out of the Bill.
"Have you ever heard of this national re
ligious liberty association t A gentleman
was in here today with a petition signed
by thousands and thousands of good citi
zens. They have sent many thousands of
names to Washington. They only ask
that congress shall not mention the Sun
day question in the bill; in other words,
that the church and the state be kept
separate. I am inclined to think such a
sentiment as that will prevail. I told
them, too, at Washington that thy could
not tell us how to run our concern if they
only gave us a loan.

Briggs Gets a Hearing.
Dr. Briggs was then heard. He said the
assembly had no right to entertain the ap
peal ngainst his protest. He appeared be
fore the assembly to make this argument,
not waiving the rights he and his friends
might have before the synod of New York.
"I am forced," he said, "to meet legal
arguments here, and obliged to worry the
assembly with technical objections. In
such a situation I need all the reflecting
grace that God can give me." He theu
went into a critical analysis of the charges
and had not finished at adjournment.
Some Notiee of Fair Decorations
The visitor to the fair grounds who is
particularly favored may enter a number
of queer little sheds scattered about the
grounds, and there he may see the men
at work who are designing and producing
the heroic-sized figure that will go up in
the pediments, on columns and domes and
in niches all over the fair buildings. One
of these shed-studios is stowed away un
der the gallery of the transportation
building, and here John J. Boyle is put
ting the last touches on a group that is to
adorn one of the fountains on the east fa
cade of the transportation building.
Navigation, Commerce and Conquest
Three female figures of heroic size com
pose the piece. The central figure typifies
the spirit of Navigation. To her left is
Commerce, bearing the caduci and sex
tant; on the right is Conquest, helmeted
and slightly armored and bearing the
sword in her right hand. Although the
work is to partake of the temporary in its
use the artist has put himself into it with
a conscientious study worthy of more en
during reward. The conception and treat
ment of the figures are beautiful in their
simplicity. The lines of the drapery are
characteristically free and faithful and
the pose portrays the subject admirably.
For the Klectric Building.
Another work is the pediment for the
south entratice of the electricity building.
The designer is K. Bock, a Chicagoan,
who learned his art iu some of the best
studios of Kurope and is rapidly making
his way to the front of young American
sculptors. The piece is sixty feet in ex
treme length and sixteen feet high at the
center. The figures are vigorous, though
not lacking in repose, aud show the genius
of electricity in its var'ed development.
The Morse register, relay, coil and other
symbols complete the design.
The World's Fair Bill.
In the World't fair bill that will be pre
sented to congress will be provision for a
special invitation to the queen of Spain
and the young king, with certain descend
ants of Columbus. Also for the issue of a
proclamation by the president calling on
the people and especially the school chil
dren to observe Discovery Day Oct. 12
next. As to the appropriation that is a

Washington, May 2S. Only a very
brief discussion was had on the sslver bill
in the senate yesterdar, and that was on
the point of letting it go over to Tuesday
because Sherman was not ready to speak.
The silver men agreed that the bill be in
formally laid aside tiil Tuesday. A brief

to classify and prescribe postal clerks'
The sundry civil bill was finally passed

diers' homes, to the support thereof, being
rejected, aud the appropriation of $025,000

and the post office appropriation taken np
and debated for an hour. During the ses
sion Springer cot a bill -passed for a
bridge across the Illinois at Havana, Ills.
In Memory of Dead Soldiers,
Chicago, May 2S. Decoration Day ex
ercises were held in all of Chicago's public
schools yesterday morning and afternoon.
Flags and flowers abounded in every nook
and corner of the class rooms, and patriot
ism shone on the bright faces of the
pupils, as they sang the national airs in
honor of heroes long since dead. In every
school the Declaration of Independence
was read, and veterans told the pupils
the oft-repeated tales of valor.
