Chicago, Oct. 15. Two weeks ago Thurs
day the World's fair directors gave the or
der to begin preparing the manufactures
and liberal arts building for the dedication
ceremonies of Friday next. This meant
the providing of seats in amphitheatrical
arrangement for 60,000 persons. It goes
without sayiug that there was a great deal
of work to be done, an immense amount of
lumber to be secured and transported to
the grounds. No time was lost by the con
tractors, and by Sunday they had 1M men
at work. This number has been steadily
increasing till at the end some 650 men
were at work, and Thursday night eveiy
thing was practically completed as far as
the carpentry work was concerned and
ready for the decorators to take hold.
How's This for an Orchestra Stand?
The dimensions of the floor on which the
exercises will take place are 1,300x400 feet,
being the whole of the space under the
immense trusses, the naves being left for
promenading. At the extreme south end
is the large orchestra stand, and in the
center of the east side the speakers' plat
form and the stand for distinguish.-!
guests. The orchestra stand is 175 feet
wide and ISO feet deep. The height of the
lowest tier from the floor is nine feet, ris
ing hark to a height of thirty-eight fee.
At the hack is a large sounding board. It
will hold ", persons, and the entrances
for the performers will be by the rear and
Hides. In this structure there are 45,000
feet of lumlier.
For NotaMes. Speakers and the Press.
The stand for distinguished guests is 222
feet long and 100 feet deep. It is five feet
a)xve the ground, and there are twenty
eight tiers in it, each step being raised
eight inches. The speakers' stand is in the
center, semi-circular in form, 18x32 feet. It
is the same height as the rest of the struc
ture, five feet aiiove the floor. The press
stand runs along the whole front, under- iiave one of the finest exhibits

is exceedingly short, and I greatly fear
that I can prepare nothing adequate to the
occasion, but the invitation with which

in acceptiug it.
Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland Coming.
Grover Cleveland, Mrs. Cleveland and
baby Ituth are coming to Chicago next
week to take part in the festivities of de
dicating the World's fair buildings. Tte

by a small party of New York friends, will

Illinois National Guard.
The World's fair directors yesterday ap
propriated $10,000 to pay the expenses of
the Illinois National Guard in attending
ing the dedication exercises. This puts an
end to all speculation regarding the pres
ence of the Illinois troops in the military
parade, and General Fitzsimmons exjects
that every regiment will be present. The
trouble arose from the decision of the state
World's fair board that no part of the
money appropriated for the state's exhibit
could be made available for the expenses of
Select Knights Will Not Parade.
William U. Livingston, grand com
mander for Illinois of the Select Knights
of America, has issued an order that the

He has sent a communication toeach legion
to the effect that as the knights are a mili

become them to turn out at all.

Washington',, Oct. 15. The president
will not go to Chicago. Private Secretary
Halford yesterday so informed Adlai T.
Ewing anil John Addison, of Chicago, who
are here to arrange for the trip of the nota
bles to the dedication. It was a great dis
Hppointment to the president to be com
elled to decline the invitation. Since its
inception the World's fair has had no firmer
friend than he. but his wife's condition is
too critical to risk leaving her long enough
to go to Chicago, Vi -e President Morten

Breckinridge Kesents Some Newspaper
Criticism Watterson Invited.
The fact that Representative Breckin
ridge, of Kentucky, voted in congress against
an appropriation for the fair started certain
newspapers in Chicago to criticism of the j
distinguished Kentuckian, the good taste j
to say the least of which is a matter of
discussion. Mr. Breckinridge resented this
implication that when he consented to be the
orator he was "ticketed," as it were, and
deprived of his right to vote us he thought
proper, and resigned the place of orator of
the day at the dedication. r

After several attempts to get Mr. Breck

of the Congregationalists will be held three

yesterday and the council agreed by a large
vote to hold its next meeting on the coast,

pointed) to select the place. The chairman
of the provisional committee is Rev. II. L.

Decided the Alabama Case.
The Alabama case came up. It is as fol
lows: There are two babies, the negroes
and the whites, the latter being of recent
origin. The negroes are represented here
as they always have been, dating back as
an organization seventeen years. Now the
white organization wnnts representation,
while refusing to work with the negroes.
After a long debate it was decided to seat
the negro representative from the disputed
district and admit the white association as
an honorary memlicr.
Relations to the American Hoard.
The committee on relations to the Amer

but postponing further action until the re

by the board at its Chicago meeting a short
time ago. The New, West and American
college and educational societies were con
solidated and six monthly mission organs
were merged into one weekly pajer. The

Lon'dos, Oct. 15. Andrew Carnegie sub
mitted to a long interview yesterday in the
Hotel Metropole, leing the first time he has
spoken freely to a newspaper man since the
recent serious lalxir troubles at his exten
sive works in Homestead, Pa. He said
that he would start for the continent on
Tuesday next, and that he intended to de
vote the winter to visiting the various
cities of Kurope and inspecting the large
manufactories which they contained. He
would study thoroughly the laws bearing
on industrial concerns, especially those of
courts of arbitration which France had
established for the settlement of differ
ences existing between employers and em
ployed. Has Keen Writing a Hook.
He informed the reporter that he had
been busily engaged all during the spring
and summer iu preparing a new look treat
ing of the industrial problems of the day.
The work, he explained, was written from
the standpoint of one who had long retired
from active business and who had been
both an employe and an employer and
knew how to sympathize with both. He
would writ as a workingman to working
men and as an employer to employers; not
as an advocate, but as a judge between
them. Since the deplorable Homestead
events, which had burst upon him like a
thunderbolt from a clear sky, he had Ixen
unable to work much. They had a de
pressing effect upon him.
Might He MlNtaken In This.
He had perforce to lay his book aside and
resort to the lochs and moors, fishing daily
from morning to night. Now everything
had been settled at the works, as telegrams
which he had just received showed that all
the troops had left Homestead and that the
ranks of the strikers had been broken. The
old men were returning daily to their form
er places and the trouble was virtually a
thing of the past. He would now jo to the
continent and work with a fresh and ha;py
mind. For all the deplorable incidents of
the Homestead strike his chief regret was
that so nianv of the old men had allowed
their places to be filled.
Kngland Going to tin; liiiir-V.'oivt.
Referring to the business prospects of
this country, Carnegie said that the out
look for Great Britain was very dark. lie
daily saw a least half a dozen calls fr
reductions of wages nnd hours of lalxir and
the closing of works. Owing to the poor
crops m Kurope the L nited states would
find good markets for all its surplus pro
ducts. That country would therefore re
main prosperous and the masses would lie
able to obtain full employment and to live
in comfort, although at the present prices
for manufactures continue low.
"All Iltitiky" In the l'nit-t States.
The capacity for production of the I'nited
Suites was beyond any possible domestic
requirements for some time to come and
the country was therefore enabled to send
its surplus products abroad and undersell
even the Itritisli in their own markets. -Iu
short," said Carnegie in conclusion, "look
where you will there is but one truly pros
perous count ry in the world, ami t his is t he
republic of tne I'nited States. God bless
her. She deserves it."
