Chicago, June 25. The secretary of the
World's fair commission of Great Britain,
Bir Henry Freeman-Wood, and Herr
6chuars Alquist, one of Germany's
World's fair commissioners, have arrived
in this country on business connected with
the fnir. Sir Henry Wood comes to make
an appeal for more space for the British
exhibit at the fair. He says in this con
nection that so great has the interest in
the exposition become in Europe that he
believes that the English exhibit alone
would fill at least half of all the buildings
If the space could be secured. He adds
that letters are pouring in at his head
quarters in Indon from every corner in
Great Britain with urgent requests for
pace. There is no possibility, he con
cludes, of satisfying even a small percent
age of these requests.
The Knlser Much Interested.
Herr Alquist, the German commissioner,
is also ou a mission to Chicago with the
view of getting more space. He says that
he is prepared to launch the wrath of the
German emperor at the heads of the Chi
cago gentlemen if they refuse to give addi
tional space to the German exhibition. He
adds: '! do not think the American people
are aware of the intense interest which
Emperor William takes in the United
States, and it is largely through his ef
forts that the German empire will make a
better showing at this American exposi
tion than it ever did at any previous affair
of the kind."
I'i -pitchmen Want More Koom.
Baron de Vialar, a French fair commis
sioner, was here looking over tltp site, and
was tackled by a reporter when be reached
New York on bin way home, ml asked
what he thought of the space allotted the
French department uXit sufficient," re
plied the baron. "We asked for mote area
while we were there, but I do not know
that we will get it. The commissioners
aaid they would consider the matler. We
have now but t0,000 square feet of xround.
I imagine France, Germany, and Kngland
are treated about alike. All are after more
ground. It is possible, if we get more
ground, that our general commissioner,
Mr. Kranz, will ask the French congress
for a further appropriation. Sun .tiling
like 0 0,01 has already been appropriated,
but this is hardly enough to be in keeping
with the magnificence of the fair."
Vrauce's Exhibit will lie It tan.
When asked what be thought the com
mercial interests of France would do in
the way of exhibiting, Huron de Vialar
aaid: "The French exhibits will not. be be
hind those of other foreign countries. Of
course I cannot give anything like definite
figures, but the commercial display will
not fall short of $0 t,000,000 in value. We
will have over here an exhibit of every
thing the country of France produces."
Were Cannibals In Columbus' Time.
Frederick A. Ober, who has been for
ome time in the Leeward islands as spt
eial Wold's fair commissioner, said yester
day: ''The World's fair has been very well
advertised m the Lieeward islands and a
number of the descendants of the Caribs
will come to see it. The lesser Antilles
have loug been famous as the home of the
last of the cannibal Caribs discovered by
Columbus in 1493 on his - Jk d voyage.
If the account of the SpnniZ- is to be
believed the huts on the islands were the
abode of cannibals when Columbus land
ed, for the evidences were strewn on every
ide legs and arms, freshly severed heads,
akulls and heaps of human bones."
RAIN DELAYS CONSTRUCTION.
As Soon as It Lets Up 10.000 Men Will
The rain during this month has much
delayed work at the fair site, to say noth
ing of the damage it has done, which is
not small, although not as great as was
looked for. About 6,500 men are now em
ployed. When the clouds quit leaking the
force will be increased to 10,000, and per
haps 12,000, to make up for lost time. The
manufactures building, largest of them
all, is farthest behind, and Contractor
Agnew has Just doubled his force of men,
tinder imperative orders from the con
struction department. Assistant Chief
Graham said yesterday that there was no
doubt now that it would be completed as
far as necessary at the dedicatory cere
monies next October.
Progress Made on the Monster.
The iron work is well along, fifteen of
the twenty-two trusses of the central hall
are in place, and there is no doubt that
this contract will be completed by Aug. 10.
Contractors say they will be done by that
time, and there is no reason why they
should not be. The keeping of the carpen
try work up to the iron work is but a ques
tion of workmen. The material is all on
the ground, and when the iron work is out
of the way the building will grow as rap
idly as desired. The luthiug and plaster
ing of the building can be completed with
the carpentry work, and the exterior cover
ing is all cast and ready to place. All of
the other buildings under way are in such
state of progress at present that there can
be no doubt of their completion by Octo
ber. The landscape gardening is ahead of

FIGURES FROM THE CENSUS BUREAU.
Statistics That Those Inclined Can Do
a Lot of Thinking Over.
Washin-gto. June 25. The census
office yesterday issued advance copies of a
bulletin giving the distribution of popula
tion by color, sex and general nativity in
1890, by states and terri-ories and for the
United States as a whole. The population
as a whole has increased during the decade
from 1S80 to 18U0 l!1,466d7, the total popu
lation returned in 1890 being 83,629,380, as
against a total nopals ion in 1880 of 50,
155,788. The males ha re increased from
25,518,)20 in 18S0 to 82,'7,t-80 in 1S90, the
numerical increase being ,54!,0fi0. The
whole number of females returned in 1880
was 24,6i,963, while in 1800 there were
80,554,1170. The females have increased,
therefore, 5,917,407 since 1S80.
Some figures That Contain a Mural.
Considering the population classified as
regards native and foreif. n born it is found
that 58,827,508 are native born and 9,948,541
are foreign born. In 1881 there were 43,
475,840 native born and 6,679,948 foreign
born. Tin- increase in Ufitive born during
the decade was 9,986,8(8, as against an in
crease for the decade ending with 1880 of
W.4M,0!1n. The increase in foreign born
during the decade from 1880 to ls'.xj was
8,860,t(M, the increase for the decade ended
With ISS I being 1,112,714.
Small Increase in Colored People.
According to the censiu of 1890 there are
in the United States 54948,890 white per
sons and 7,68850 colored tenons, meaning
by "colored." persons of friean descent,
Chinese, Japanese, and c vilissd Indians.
There has been an increase in the white
from issi) to lsiK) of U,. l.ftJO, and an in
crease in t he colored for tiie same decade
of SS5.547. For the decs le from 170 to
1880 llie white increased 211.99 per cent, and
the colored apparently 85.90 per cent. The
increase from 1870 to 1880 vas to a certain
extent fictitious, particularly as regards
the colored population of the south.
Percentages of Males oiiil i'emales.
From a table giving the population of
the United States by letcentages ac
cording to sex, native an 1 foreign bora
and color in each case, in every decade
since 1850, it is shown that 51.21 per cent,
of the total population ret irued in 1890 are
males and 48.79 per cent, are females. In
1880 the males represented 50.88 percent.
and the females 49.12 percent. The per
centages of males and femi les in 1870 were
60.56 per cent, for males an 1 49.44 jier cent,
for females, while in lHfiO hey were 51. 16
per cent, for males and 48.4 per cent, for
for females. The excess of males over
females in 1890 was 1,513,51 I, as against an
excess in 1880 of 881,857. It 1870 the males
only exceeded the females by 428,758,
whereas in 1860 there were 727,087 more
males than females. In 185 I the males ex
ceeded the females by4it,444. The very
large excess of males in .890 is readily
accounted for by the greatly increased
number of immigrants who have come to
this country since 1880, ovei three-fifths of
the entire number being males.
The Foreign and Native Born.
Analyzing the results of t le distribution
of population according to native and for
eign born it is seen that 17.77 per cent, of
the population in 1890 were foreign born,
as against 18.83 per cent, in 1870, and 9.68
percent, in 1850. The native born in 1W0
represented 90.32 per cent, if the whole
population, while in 1890 tiny represented
85.23 per cent. The colored lement of our
population, including Chinese, Japanese
and civilized Indians, as wel as persons of
African descent, represented 12.20 per cent,
of the population in 1890, as against 15.69
per cent, in 1850. The relatively decreased
percentage of colored in 1870 as compared
with 1860, and also with 188 , te due, as
has already been stated, to he deficient
census of 1870 in the southeri states.

those killed was Richard Adams, a fur
niture dealer of this city. He had gone to
Philadelphia with his wife, who remained
in that city.

THE CUBA CITY TORNADO.
Every Dwelling House In Town Demol
ished Some Details.
Galena, 111., June 25. The village of
Cuba City, Wis., about fifteen miles north
of here, was devastated by a tornado
Wednesday evening. The storm swept
everything in its path for a distance of
several miles. Every business house in
the town was totally demolished. Xot a
tree, windmill or house is left standing
between Cuba City and Hazel Green.
The stone dwelling house of George
Wilkinson was the first object of the cy
clone's wrath. The building was blown
down, stones being piled high on Mr.
Wilkinson's bed, which was otherwise
unoccupied. Horses hitched to buggies
were lifted high and in some eases set
down without injur" many yards away.
Windlasses and pumps were lifted com
pletely out of cisterns and wells. A new
church was destroyed. Cars were blown
It Was Ticklish Traveling.
Mr. Barker's home and Mr. Gilham's
ice house wer. struck by lightning and de
stroyed. Bomber in the yards was scat

train which reached Cuba City soon after
the tornado only travelled over the road in
safety by the aid of a lantern, which was
carried ahead of the engine by a man who
walked all the way from Platteville with
this guide for the engineer.
THE WORK OF THE STORMS.
Chicago Has Thirty-live Miles of Dam
aged Street Fatal Cyclone.
Chicago, June 25. One of the worst
features of the storms this week is the
damage to streets, over thirty-five miles
of which are left in a terrible condition.
It is estimated that $35,000 will be required
to place them in condition. The telephone
wires suffered considerable and large
gangs of men were busy all yesterday un
tangling them. Outside the city the dam
age was severe. Railroat't were washed
out and traffic was pructically suspended
ou all roads.
The Damage to the Crops.
Just how much damage has been done to
crops is not easy to estimate. The general
report is that wheat and oats have suffered
by the storm, but that corn has been but
little affected. As harvesting is in progress
the heavy rains will delay it. A special
dispatch says that grain is badly lodged
for twenty-five miles on both sides of the
Cyclone Havoc at Harvey.
A cyclone at Harvey, 111., blew down a

1 Poverty-stricken Millionaire!
This seems a paradox, but it is ex
plained by one of New York's richest
men. "1 don't count my wealth in
dollars," he said. "What are all my
possessions to me, since I am a victim
of consumption f My doctor tells me
that I have but a few months to live,
for the disease is incurable. I am poor
er than that beggar yonder." "But,"
lnterupted the friend to whom he spoke,
"consumption can be cured. If taken
In time, Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery will eradicate every vestige
of the disease from vour system." "I'll
try It," said the millionaire, and he did;
and to-day there is not a healthier,
happier man to be found anywhere.
The "Discovery" strikes at the teat of
the complaint. Consumption is a dis
ease of the blood is nothing more nor
less than lung-scrofula and it muff
and does yield to this wonderful remedy.
"Golden Medical Discovery" is not
only an acknowledged remedy for that
terribly fatal malady, when taken in
