Bonney's Great Kdncatlonal Enterprise
Notes ot the Big Show.
Chicago, July 23. Dispatches from
Washington yesterday announcing that
the conference commit toe might compro
mise on a smaller amount ot money for
the fair caused many directors to shake
their heads solemnly. "It will never do to
compromise," they said. ''In asking for
$3,000,000 we put our figures low enough,
and to take less would simply mean that
the people of Chicago would have to raise
the difference in addition to the 13,000,000
or $3,000,000 they will have to secure after
getting $5,000,000 from the government."
Friends of the fair in congress were urged
yesterday to stand out for the full amount
and to decline all overtures to compromise.
Fundi Are a Necessity.
The truth is that the directors must
have the mouey. They cannot get along
without it unless they adopt extreme
measures. It is too late to issue any more
city bonds in aid of the fair, and It is also
doubtful whether a proposition to bond
the city to the extent of another $5,000,000
would succeed. The feeling is general
that Chicago has already done as much
both as a municipality and through her
citizens, as could be expected of any city.
The directors say that in raising $11,000,
000 for the fair they have performed a
greater feat than was ever performed in
connection with an international exposi
tion, ami they do not think their burden
should be increased.
Couldn't Balse It by Subscription.
It would be an absolute impossibility to
raise the additional $8,000,000 or more by
popular subscription. Some of the larger
stockholders might double their holdings,
but Treasurer Seeberger's clerks could not
take in money fast enough in this way to
meet the enormous outlay that will be
necessary between now and the dedica
tion ceremonies in October. The build
ings and grounds ot the exposition are
supposed to be finished by that time,
betting to the Bottom of the File.
The con tractors are rushing the work
along at a very rapid gait, and the con
tractors must be paid regularly or their
army of S,000 laborers will quit. At the
present rate of expenditures Secretary See
berger will see the bare floor of his strong
vault in a very few weeks, perhaps before
September 1. At that lime every depart
ment will be working under pressure, and
the delay of even a day would be impos
Sanguine of the Bill Passing.
A telegram frjm Washington to The
Herald says: "Monday next the World's
fair battle will be fought over again in the
house and the $3,000,000 appropriation
will be agreed to by a majority of more
than twenty votes. Karly in the aft
ernoon of that day the conferrees are ex
pected to report inability to agree with
the conferrees on the part of the senate
and to ai-k instructions to persist in their
disagreement. JJurborow will move as
an amendment that the house recede from
its position, and this motion will prevail.
The majority in its favor cau scarcely fail
below twenty, and it may rise above
Settled the Labor Question.
Another telegram says that General St.
Clair over his own siguuture has positive
ly denied that Devlin, Hayes or Wright
ever made a proposition to him looking in
the leat to making money out of the fair.
The conduct of the knights, he says, was
entirely honorable from first to last. The
labor question has bwn settled by agree
ment that eight hours shall constitute a
days work on the part of the workmen,
that none but citizens, and those who
have bona fide declared their intentions
shall be employed, and that labor disputes
or differences should be at unrated, with
some other minor points.
BONNEY'S EDUCATIONAL SCHEME.
National Educatloual Association to
Meet Here Next Year.
In that still, effective way that charac
terizes most of his work Charles C. Uon-
uey achieved a master stroke for the
