Mr. Stevenson truthfully say, in the f ace
of an official notice that the governmei i j
would pay these bonds, that the treasury
was bankrupt and could not pay them?
Twenty-five Million Redeemed.
What else was there in this notice It
informed the holders of these ltonds that
the government would consider proposi
tions for their continuance at a lower rate
of interest, reserving to the government the
right to pay at its pleasure. The holders
of more than fcil.OOO.ooo of these bonds re
quested that they lie continued at 2 per
cent, and this administration enjoys the
enviable position of having placed a gov
ernment loan at a lower rate of interest
and in a more advantageous position than
any government on earth and of having il
lustrated by a practical test that the credit
of the United States government under the
presidency of Harrison enjoys the highest
and best credit it ever tiefore enjoyed. The
remaining 25,(kiO,OiiO have been paid.
The Treasury Not at All Itankrupt.
"For more than eighteen months the cry
of a bankrupt treasury has)cen kept going,
but at all times the treasury has promptly
met every obligation of the government.
Our Eeiiuicratic friends have put thein
Kelves in the unpatriotic attitude of desiring
a bankrupt treasury. This administration
does not expect to mid to their pleasure in
this respect." The balance of the speech
was devoted to showing the evil results flow
ing from a state bank currency.

Cleveland and censuring the f usionists for
their sell out. There were 3X) delegates in
the convention, and steps were taken for

Sentiment of the Convention.
Colonel A. A. Harris, of Fort Scott, with
whom the idea of a new Democratic organ
ization originated, was made chairman of
the convention, and Charles Siencer, of
Topcka, who was read out of the Demo
cratic party by the Shawnee county con
vention, was elected secretary. The
streamers and banners which were dis
played expressed. the controlling sentiment
of the convention. Among the most signifi
cant were these: "It is infamous to make
a surrender to the People's party a test of
true Democracy," and "Between the two
evils of People's party radicalism and Re
publican misrule a Democrat in Kansas
can vote as he pleases or not vote at all."
As Expressed in the Beaoluslona.
There were fourteen resolutions in the
platform adopted, which denounce tne

Chicago, Oct. 8. Jackson park will on
Oct. 21 be open only to those who are fortu
nate enough to hold invitations to the ded
ication ceremonies. This has been finally
settled by the executive committee at its
session. The council of administration had
given this matter careful consideration, and
at the session of the executive committee it
reported that it would be unsafe to allow
the public to crowd into the park on dedica
tion day. This report was taken up by the
committee and discussed, a few contending
that the public should be admitted. The
general opinion was that it was unfortu
nate that any one who desired to attend
should lie excluded, and all agreed that a
full explanation of the circumstances should
be given the public.
Reason for the Exclusion.
One of the reasons is the lack of trans
portation facilities. Rut the one most dwelt
upon is that there have been invited Si.mji)
distinguished people to be the guests of the
city. It is the duty of the city to see that
they Ie adequately cared for, and this care
includes comfort as well as sightseeing. To
crowd them into a merciless jam at Jack
son park would be a long way from com
fort, and would give rise human nature
being what it is to a vast amount of criti
cism upon Chicago hospitality that would
not inure to the success of the great enter
prise. Then if a vast throng is iermitted
inside the gates it will le nlsmt impossible
to keep it out of the liberal arts building,
in which the exercises will 1h? held, and

Feeding a Throng of 1'eople.
The restaurant business is one of the big
gest things connected with the fair. At
the Paris exposition visitors were charged
fabulous prices for stuff that is spread free
on scores of lunch counters in Chicago. A
dinner, so-called, cost more at the Paris
fair than is charged for a fine spread in tho
most cxpen-ive re-taiiratit in Chicago.
The loard c.f directors has undertaken to
prevent such extortion pt the World's fair
and stringent rul will be adopted to ; ro
tcct visitors from oven l.arres. It is the
intention to have r statu-mts in all the
large buildings. The-e, with the addition
of numerous cafes throughout the grounds
and scores of foreign restaurants, will pro!
ably furnish ample facilities for feeding the
Some Montana Women's Work.
Montana's women will make a creditable
display at the fair. From I.e.incton a
cedar table n.ade by a woman will be con
tributed. The design will be unique, rer
resenting a miniature miner's cabin stand
ing on the top. in which will le placed a
collection of the prin i:).-.l ores and miner
als of the state. From Anaco!id- will be
sent n design characteristic of the name

asked to give 5 cents each towards main

FOREIGN BUILDINGS AT THE FAIR.
Only Two 1'iider Way Vet Japanese
Foreign governments are not doing fs
much in the way of putting up special
buildings at Jackson parkas odieials of
the fair thought they would. Fine loca
tions were reserved for nearly every country
that made an appropriation, just as they
were for the different states. Onlj- two
of these foreign buildings are now under
way Germany's and England's. Japan
will commence building in a few days and
Hayti will also. G.iuteniala's commission
ers have also brought their plans.
Twenty skilled Jniianws? workmen, clad
in t lie garments of their native land, their
heads covered with odd-looking, but not
unlx-coming, caps, and their faces learning
with interest, arrived yesterday and were
at once whisked out to the World's fair
grounds, which is to ! the scene of their
lalsors. To-day the first shovelful of earth
will lie dug for the foundation of the Japa
nese official pavilion if the weather is favor
able, and from that time on the pretty
structure will grow rapidly.
Kxliilii: of Woman's Industries.
The Illinois woman's exposition board, in
attempting to prepare an exhibit of the in
dustries of the women of the state, has found
it extremely difficult, and, in most cases,
impossible to separate the products of the
work of men and women in factories. For
this reason it biis been decided to represent
th-se branches of the industries of women
by large photographs showing women in
taeir work rooms and at their work.
Characteristic of "Pope Rob."
(Vdonel R. G. Ingersoll was in town yes
terday and was asked about Sunday clos
ing. He said: "It would le an consistent if
congress should pass a bill to theeffect that
it would appropriate so much money to the
fair providing none but memlxrs of the
Met!'o.::st church would be allowed to
en:-; the gates of the fair. " The
i-iy that Christians now keep was not
the day that Jehovah sanctified.
To lie sure the fair is the enemy of
orthodox Christianity, and the church
ought tcf opiose it altogether.
Good music weakens the creed, especially
if heard ou Sunday. Let the fair
be closed on Sunday and superstition will
flourish. Give this world over to the creeds
end iu a few years there will be no fairs
because there will be nothing to show."
