Cnu kao, July B. President Baker, of
the local directory of the World's fair, ami

ment ot promotiou and publicity, are at
NUt da' points, and yesterday a eoniinittee
of five local directors wa-. appointed to
invest tgate t lie canseof the trouble. Baker
objects to an Interview credited to Handy,
in which Hiker's action in (hatting off
basses to newspaper correspondents: is
severely criticised. The trouble WW be
gan when the correspondent of a Haiti
more paper which has printed columns of
matter favorable to the fair presented a
pass signed by Major Handy, and the pass
nas rejected by t he gan man at the
grtmnds, who said he had orders from
Baker to honor no passes not signed by
the hitter. A meeting of editors of papers
in the region around Chicago was held
yesterday, at which r - solutions denouncing
Baker's course in this matter were adopted.

World's fair a gun alongside of which '

special carriage to convey it from the sea

to take it into the grounds, w here a heavy
foundation w ill In- required to mount it.
It Is Eighty-Seven Peel Long.
Lieutenant Haker, speaking of the gun,
says: "Our biggest guns are aliout forty
five feet in length. The Krupp gun will
be, I think, ahoofc eighty seven feet long.

Some Doubt About the Scotch
Lomiov. July S. The returns from yes
terday's pollings do not brighten to any
extent the Liberal prospect. In the luce
division of Lancashire Colonel Hluudell,
Conservative, was defeated by Woods, a
Labor candidate. The light was distinctly
not on the home rule issue. Colonel HI1111
ilell is the owner of the Pemberton col
liery and the general prejudice against
owners of collieries was used against him
His defeat is counted a Liberal gain, on t he.
general assumption that all the successful
labor candidates are Liberals, an assump
tion which may not stand the chance of
Net Liberal Gala of Two.
In Inverness, Scotland, the Liberals also
made a gain in the defeat of Robert H.
Fiulny, a friend of Secretary Halfour.
These tw o give the Liberals six gains yes
terday as against one Liberal-Unionist
and three Conservative gains, giving the
Liberals a net gain of twenty-four from
the beginning of the election. This is far
less than the Liberals expected from yes
terday's results, and their spirits
rcspondinglv depressed. 1 he li

The Conservative Advantage.
This majority is compact and harmoni
ous mi the home rule issue, whereas the
Li bera side has to deal with the labor ai d
Parnellite element. Nearly 900 more con
stituencies lemain to lie heard from, but it
looks as though the Scotch counties, as
well as the burgs, will not justify the
grand old man's confidence in them, and
he is betraying his apprehensions by pro
tests auainst Liberals supporting labor
candidates, w ho, he says, are Tory cats

The southern division of Dublin county
was captured by the Unionists with a
Roman Catholic candidate, Horace Plon-
kett, who had over 000 majority over
both the home rule candidate! Parnellite
and McCarthyite. McC arthy himself was
beaten at Londonderry by 88 majority, but,
that was not a surprise, as he only had ii
majority in 1888.
How Dublin City Went.
Dublin city w ent overwhelmingly Par
nellite in three of Its four divisions and
the fourth was captured by a Catholic
Unionist iy the slender majority of twenty
over Lord Mayor Meade. Timothy Har
rington, the old secretary of the national
league and the practical politician of the
Parnellites, beat his Healyite opponent by
ovei 8,000 majority, while Dr. J. E Kenny,
the treasurer of the league, knocked out
ex-Lord Mayor I. 1). Sullivan.
Morley's Misplaced Confidence.
The Newcastle election still bothers the
Liberals. A week or so ago Morley pub
licly declared that he Would feel himself
Insulted if Newcastle did not elect him by
a majority of tit least 3,000, and that he
would resign his seat if the majority
should be less than 2,000. The Tories are
now challenging him to fuilili his promise
and retire, as his majority was much less

Willful Failure to tllve Credit Where
Credit 1h Bui".
The Union of this morning in corns
mcnting on '.he increase pat on the house
appropriations for the maintenance of
Rock Island arsenal, by the senate com
mittee evinces its characteristic diBposi
Hon to misrepresent and its equally char
acteristic nature of distorting facts.
Whether it be attributable to ignorance
of the situation or to a determination not
lo see correctly in this case, that the
Union refuses to credit CongressmenCable
and Hayes and also Messrs. Fred HasB
and S. F. Smith with work actually done
in behalf of the senate appropriations, it
matters not to The Arous. This paper
realizes to the fullest extent the work
always done for this community, for the
can tl, for the Hock Island arsenal and
for the viaduct by Senators Allison and
Culiom, the latter public improvement
being due absolutely to their efforts,
but ia this case it knows what has been
drne by Congressmen Cable and Hayes,
aad by Messrs. Hass and Smith, and not
only can the correspondence be produced
to show iust, who is responsible for the
actual facts'being placid in the hands of
Senators. Allison and Cullom who have
used them to tuch good advantage, but
eren before the hotrse appropriations,
weie made known by efflcial publication
and Congressmen Cable and Hayes found
'hat they were not what they had been
working for, and they at once began
working on securing an increase in the
s natc, that Messrs. Hass and Smith
visited Washington at their solicitation,
the Union to the contrary notwithstand
ing, and have been in daily correspon
dence since their return, and that corres
p ndence is at the Union's disposal if it
desires to see it. Credit should be placed
where it is cue, and no tmall amount is
due Senators Allison and Cullom, hut a
paper is guided by a contemptibly
nigirardiy policy that will fail to recog
nize the services of Congressmen Cable
and Hayis, and Messrs. Huss and Smith
in this case.
