Chicago, Sept. 10. S?venty buildings
re now in process of construction at
Jackson park, twenty-eight being state
clubhouses. Ou the two unfinished struc
tures manufactures and machinery hall
work is being pushed to the limit. The
last of the iron work on machinery hall
was finished yesterday, and the principal
carpenter work is in finishing the two
spires. The exterior covering is nearly
all done ou the north front of the main
building. The annex i practically fin
ished exteriorly and is being lathed. The
final estimate of the Edgemoor Bridge
company for the steel work on manufac
tures building was made yesterday. It
shows that in the roof of the central hall
there have been placed 12,908,775 pounds
of steel, costing td29,2o0.77.
Progress on the State Buildings,
Although work on most of the state
buildings at Jackson park is progressing
rapidly, it is not likely that many of them
will be completed in time for the dedi
catory exercises next month. The delay is
due to the fact that most of the state
boards want these club houses to represent
their resources in building material. Very
frequently this material does not arrive on
time, and operations must be suspended.
Those state buildings that are inclosed
and roofed, with the rough work done and
interior finishing progressing, are: Illinois,
Kansas, West Virginia. Rhode Island,
Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hamp
shire, Iowa, Maine. Arkansas, Indiana,
Ohio, Pennsylvania, Nebraska, Montana,
Situation as to the Others.
The condition of the others is: Cali
fornia, outer wall structure up to the sec
ond story line, with a section of roof over
the gallery finished in spots; Michigan,
frame work raised and some roof rafters
eet; Xew York, frame work all up to the
roof line; Washington, excavations made
for the foundation, material arriving;
South Dakota, excavations made for
foundation and some ground timbers laid
yesterday; Arkansas, floor laid and frame
work of outer wails up to the second-story
line; Minesota, frame all up, tinners put
ting on the roof and some staff on the ex
terior. Work In the Flaiaanee.

Report on the Finances.
Auditor Ackerman's report of World's
fair finances, made public yesterday, con
tains much information of general inter
est. It shows the total receipts to Aug. 31
to be $10,401,044.65 and expeuditures to the
same date $V,?43,2.MU3. The balance on
hand at the time the report was made up
was $1,657,785.43. August was a big month
for expenditures. The construction '.

JOHNNY CRAPAUD'S ULTIMATUM.
lie Insists on Having All the Space He
Wants or None.
CniCAOo, Sept. 10. After making an
appropriation of $8(10,000 for the World's
fair, and completing all plans for the great
est exhibit of any foreign nation, the gov
ernment of France came near withdraw
ing entirely from the Columbian exposi
tion. Cablegrams were received several
dtys ago announcing that unless certain
conditions were granted to French exhib
itors by Sept. 10 France would suspend 11
preparations for the fair, surrender the
space assigned to her exhibitors, and can
eel the official acceptance of President
Harrison's invitation to take part in the
fair. The demand of the French govern
ment was for more space, particularly in the
manufactures building. If it was rejected
then France would give up all the room
that had been reserved for her.
Will Have Her Way or Nothing.
Briefly staged, France asked for a certain
amount of space in each of the big build
ings; the amount was what experts con
sidered necessary to make a proper show
ing of the country's resources and pro
ducts; rather than accept a smaller area
and have an inferior show France would
have no show at all. All the correspond
ence in the case was sent to the all-powerful
council of administration, and after
considering the matter for a couple of
days that body concluded that Johnny
Crapaud must be given what he wauts.
So France will get the space origi naily
Interesting Hallway Exhibit.
A very interesting exhibit in the trans
portation departim-nt of the World's fair
will be made by the steamship and rail
way compauies of Englaud. The coll
tion of models of battleships, yachts,
cruisers, steamers and merchant vessiU
will be more complete than was ever be
fore exhibited. The London and North
western railway will s-inl over a complete
traiu of cars headed by a great compound
locomotive named "Great Britain." This
will afford an opportunity to compare the
Knglish apartment cars and sleepers with
American coiches. The (ire.vt Western
railway will exhibit the antiquated loco
motive "Lord of the Isles," one of the fi.st
used on that road. Several of the rail
ways will show thfir signaling systems.

they saw, and were enthusiastically
cheered by the immense throng present at

ANNOUNCED A GREAT EVENT.
The Flag of Truce Put l"p by General
Le at Appomattox.
Washington, Sept. 10. One of the most
interesting relics of the late civil war is
the piece of white toweling that was used
as the flag of truce when the Confederate
army surrendered to General Grant at Ap
pomattox. It is owned in this city by
General E. W. Whitaker, who was a
member of General Cn ster's staff and re
ceived it from Captain Sims, of Long
street's staff, on the morning of April 9,
ISti5. Gener-1 Whitaker has treasured 't
during all these years and will display it
at the comiiur G. A. It. reunion.
Gave l'art to Gen. Custer.
He was induced to part with a portion
of it several years ago, when he gave half
of it to his oil- commander, the late Gen
eral Custer. Mrs. Custer afterward gave
the fragment to the museum at West
Point. Ou the small piece of towelling
appears the following statement, sworn .o
by General Whitaker before a notary pub
lic: "This is a piece of the cloth cut fn. a
the identical flag of truce which wus u-d
under orders from General R. E. Lee to
ask a cessation of hostilities of the Federal
army, at 9 o'clock a. m., April 9. 18fi5, it
Appomattox Court House, Virginia," etc.

Itourke Cockran Declares That Kvery
thing Is Serene and AH Doubt and
Apprehension Dispelled A lteport of
l'roreedings at the Victoria Hotel
Dinner Given for What It Is Worth.
New Yoke, . Sept. 10. Ex-President
Cleveland started back to Buzzard's Bay
on the Fall River boat at 5 o'clock yester
day afternoon.' He will endeavor to re
turn again to New York next week, when
another gathering of Democrats will great
bim at the Victoria hotel. His two days
in town were the busiest since the Chi
cago convention. As he was about to
leave the hotel yesterday he said that his
visit had been eminently satisfactory. "I
have seen," he said, Ma number of political
and personal friends, aud I am convinced
that the situation of the Democratic party
in New York state and elsewhere is most
That Victoria Hotel Dinner.
At the dinner at the Victoria hotel on
Thursday evening Mr. Mnrpliy sat on the
right and Mr. Sheehan on the left of Mr.
Cleveland. What was said is not certainly
known, but the talk among the wiseacres
is that the first step in the conference was
the spreading before Cleveland of reports
of the Democratic situation in all the coun
ties, some of which indicated that the
"wheelhorses" were not working as they
should, in the belief that Cleveland trained
too much with mngwumps.
Itelieves in Organization.
It is furthei stated that he assured all
at the board that be believed firmly in
party organizations. He complimented
some of the men present on the magnifi
cent working of the local and state ma
chines as at present coi.trclled. He an
nounced that neither before election nor
after, in the event of his election, would
any attempt be made to destroy that
which it had taken years of the most ardu
ous labor to build up. The local and state
machines, it was pointed out to the satis
faction of Cleveland, were not close cor
porations. There was room in them for
(K3J The Question of Fatronage.
Cleveland is also said to have practically
announced that in theevent of his election
the federal patronage wil! be distributed
by the leaders of the local and state ma
chines, aud that any recognition of the
mugwumps must come through these
channels. A proposition was broached
that Cleveland should communicate his
views in a letter to Chairman Murphy, but
certain of Cleveland's personal friends
thought this to be unnecessary just at the
TAMMANY SWINGS INTO LINE.
Itourke Cockran Gives His Adhesion to
Whatever may have been said or done
at the dinner this much is a fact that
Tammany swung into line last night.
The general committee of Tammany hall,
which consists of 6,0t0 members, met last
evening for the first time since June. It
was a great turnout of the tigers, the
big assembly-room being crowded. Rich
ard Croker. Bourke Cochran, and all the
lenders were there. The meeting, after
the transaction of some routine business,
was resolved into a regular mass meeting
for Cleveland and Stevenson.
The It-solutions That Passed.
Resolution read by Bourke Cockran
were adopted unenimously approving the
Chicago platform and pledgiug support to
Cleveland and Stevenson. The resolutions
in conclusion say: "We do cordially pledge
our untiring efforts to the elsction of
Grover Cleveland to the presidency and of
Adlai E. Stevenson to tbe vice presidency
of the United States." Here Bourke
Cockran took the floor and made the
speech of the evening.
All Dnnbts Iipelled.
He said: "I may speak to you, I feel,
with a degree of frankness concerning cer
tain subjects which perhaps at one time
filled our minds with apprehension. I
speak with all the more confidence because
this is an hour of scattered apprehensions,
of dispelled doubt, of broadened confidence,
of certainty in a Democratic victory. I
confess that when th is canvass first began
I was apprehensive lest there might be
some lack of Democratic fervor, some dis
position to put this stalwert Democratic
faith in the background, some tendency to
modify the earnest, outspoken advocacy
of the old Democratic faith.
Itefers to Cleveland's Letters.
"These apprehensions have been dis
pelled and tl.ey have been removed by the
letters of Grover Cleveland. Now, I have
heard these letters criticised by our politi
cal opponents. But I believe I speak en
tirely within the limits of strict accuracy
and moderate expression when I say that
no letters ever penned in a political enn
vass 'brought more clearly before the
minds of the people one pregnant and con
soling fact that is, that Grover Cleveland
stands to-day as the candidate of the Dem
Cockran then proceeded to reply to
Blaine's lett -r, and said the Democrats
would meet the Republicans on the issues
presented by Blaine and all others. He
was loudly cheered at conclusion.
