Chicago's Great Show Bound
To Be Ready.
EVERYTHING IN COMPLETE ORDER,
And the Exhibit In Place on Opening; Day
.. Tardy Foreigner ilven rave to Erect

Position Electricity to Help Do the
Chicago, March ia The best evidence
that managers of the World's fair are con
fident that everything will be ready for
the opening seven weeks hence is found in
the fact that last week a number of im
portant buildings were begun, N'o less
than four bi buildings were started.
They were wot as large as manufactures
hall, to be sure, but all of them were
larger than any body but an official of the
World's fair ' would attempt to finish in
Foreign Conntries Start Late.
Several fort-ijin countries, which for rea
sons not- understood at headquarters de
layed bt-giniiiii (ierstioiis until now, ap
peared through their representatives nnd
were allowed to lejrin work on their houses.
They were required to furnish satisfactory
assurances that the buildings would be
finikhed on time. When this had been
done thtVf.)ivigners were allowed to break
ground. -1 lad the officials not felt confi
dent that the t!iiMini;s would be com
pleted before the ti;:'iiing of the fair the
sites kept, for these countries would have
Ki:r Thins Coming In.
T5ig things srr beginning to come to ma
chinery hall. Dm inn the past week a num
ber of heavy exhibits were hauled into the
park and pulled around to Chief Robin
son's buildrns;. jXphHv all the exhibits in
that department:' are difficult to handle.
Compnrattvt-ly few light displays will be
made. The large proportion of them are
weighty machinery jiiid yet it is doubtful
whether h ss trouiih' will be had iu any
building in ii:-rni.ing the exhibits. The
exhibits .".re iir in place by an exhibit an
electrical elevated railway that runs from
one end of the hull to the other. The length
of the line is something like 1, iOO feet.
How Heavy Exhibits Are Handled.
Two lines are now in operation, one on
either side of the building. - An iron con
trivance that resembles a section of bridge
work is suspended between the tracks of a
structure that reaches the entire length of
the building. When a car load or two of
heavy machinery is hauled into the build
ing this iron carriage is run down the
track to a point just opposite the open cars.
Several pulleys are dropped and a moment
later the whole load is raised from the car
and taken to the place in the building
where it is to be set up. Machines weigh
ing a dozen tons or more are handled as
easily as small packages are disposed of in
Picks I'p Two Loaded Freight Cars.
An interesting device has also been put
in transportation hall for hauling in the
numerous locomotives and cars that will
be shown in that building. This consists
of a car long enough to haul two ordinary
freight cars. It is, in fact, nothing more
than a section of track operated by a pow
erful electria motor. The track is laid at
right angles to the tracks used in bringing
cars into the park. A train of stuff comes
into the park and is bumped up to the
transportation building. Two cars are
pushed along until they reach the moving
section that goes into transportation build
ing. Then they are cut off and the plat
form moves into the big hall on tracks
laid for that purpose.
BRITISH ART EN ROUTE.
' Fine Art Works From the British Koyal
Net Youk, March 13. The Cuuard
steamship Gal la. due here early next week
is expected to bring over an interesting
and valuable consignment of art for the
World's fair. It is part or nearly all of
the collection of pictures and works of
art lent by the Royal Academy of Arts of
England, together with half a dozen
sketches by the queen of England herself.
Then there are works from the brushes of
.Leighton, Alma Tadema, Bourne-Jones,
Uerkomer and others.
English Monster Loco mot Ire.
The White Star steamer Kunic last week
landed a monster eight-Wheeled English
locomotive. The outfit is boxed up so that
it cannot be seen, but it is a card job of
British workmanship, named the "Em
press Queen," and capable of making
ninety miles an hour. In fact, its builders
declare that it can cover 100 miles in that
time. The driving wheels are feet in
diameter and the machine weighs 45 tons,
the tender weighing 15 tons m ore.
A Danish Prince Coming.
The Danish government will send one of
the armed men-of-war to take part in the
great naval parade which will take place
in New York harbor in April. Recent ad
vices from Denmark state positively that

Christian IX., the present king ot Den

is king of Greece. Besides all this he is
maid to be a first class man.
THE EDITOR MUST STAND BACK,
Reason Why He Cannot Become a Post
master This Deal.
Washington'. March 13. The Post says:
The assertion that editors are not gener
ally to be recognized by the new adminis
tration is true. Mr. Cleveland believes
that his predecessor suffered through the
iharges of having subsidized the press,
and he does not intend to run the same
Jtantlet. The decision is also to be made
particularly applicable to newspaper men
who desire to be postmasters in their
towns. Mr. Bissell has had the names of
tome country editors presented to him iu
sonnection with various postoffices, but
has uniformly declined to give any en
jouragement to the office-seeker.
Too Heavy a Load to Carry.
"He lays down the principle that in small
towns all the utterances of the newspaper
jver which the postmaster-editor presides
will be regarded as the views of the ad
litnistration while, on the other hand, all
praise of Mr. Cleveland's acts will be dis
zounted because it emanates from the re
cipient of official favor. Therefore Mr. Bis
sell does not propose to appoint any edit
ors to post masterships aud the president
will observe the same rule in disposing of
the higher offices."
Sonic Applications Filed.
Washington, March 13. Among the ap
plications for office filed in the treasury de
partment are those of David II. Patton, of
Indiana, to be commissioner of immigra
tion, and T. I. Porter, of Illinois, to be
;hief of the secret service division. In the
department of justice four Michiganders
ire in hopes of being the successor of
Judge Jackson on the circuit bench. These
tre Judges Montgomery and Morse, and
E. F. Uhl and L. P. Griffin. It is under
stood that John W. Kern, of Indianapolis,
has been selected for district attorney for
the Indiana district and Hawkins as mar
shal. Political News at Cheyenne.
Cheyenne, Wyo., March. 13. Reliable
dvices from Wyoming Democrats in
Washington last night are to the effect
that the senator appointee, A. C. Beck-a-itb,
will not be seated. Both the law
and the president are aeainst him, and
likewise political expediency. Now that
the ashmgton legislature has adjourned
a'ithout choosing a senator there are two
Republican senators appointed, and the
Democrats will therefore lw losers by ad
mitting Beckwith, as they must necessarily
unicede to Montana and Washington
u hut they grant to Wyoming.
Propose to Establish a Precedent.
Washington, March 13. The cases of
the senators appointed by governors this
year are likely to occupy a goo4.eal of the
senate extra session. It happens that the
decisions of the questions involved in these
cases can be made without affecting the
political complexiou of the senate and it is
the intention on both sides of the chamber
to endeavor to consider the cases purely on
their merits and without respect to politi
cal considerations, and thus establish a
precedent that will be likely to stand here
after. Made a Joke on Sacramento.
Sacramento. Cal., March 13. The sen
ate and assembly late Saturday night re
solved to submit a constitutional amend
ment to remove the capitol from Sacra
mento to Jan Jose, provided San Jose will
Ion ate ten acres of ground and f l,(X)O,0uo.
The resolution was the result of a publica
tion in the Sacramento Bee denouncing
the legislature. The resolution was intro
duced by Senator Seymour as a joke, but
was carried tnrougn both house.
Killed by the Inauguration.
Kew York, March 13. Commissioner of
Street Improvements Louis J. Heintz, of
the annexed district, died yesterday at his
home on Washington avenue. The illness
of Mr. Heintz was caused by a cold con

Ingalls Helps the World's Fair.
Washington, March 13. The I'nited
States fish commissioner, McDonald, in
formed President Ingalls, of the Big Four,
that his appropriation for the World's fair
was not sufficient to enable him to supply

Washington, March 13. If President

Chicago, March 13. Chicago switchmen
will remain at work for the present at
least. This decision was reached at a
meeting of the grievance committee yester
day afternoon. Every one of the thirty'
two Chicago roads was represented and a
majority of the members voted against
ordering a strike. A mass meeting of
switchmen will be called for some day this
week, at which the decisionof the griev
ance committee will be presented and the
whole matter discussed.
Probably Only a Postponement.
Grand Master Wilson, of the Switch
men's Aid association, is much pleased
with the outcome of yesterday's meeting
as he believes a strike at this time would
be an injudicious move. He declines,
however, to discuss the probabiliy of a
walkout at some more opportuue time in
the future. A portion of the new men
who had leen secured in anticipation of a
strike will be given employment during
the orld s fair rush. The others will be
given transportation to their hones as
soon as the railroad managers are con
vinced that all danger of a strike is past.
Itesented the C and E. I. Demand. '
All the switchmen on the Chicago am;
Kastern Illinois railroad quit work at 5
a clock Saturday afternoon, but returned
to their posts a short time afterward
Their return to work was the result of the
tfforts of the grievance committee, which
arrived on the scene soon after the men
walked out. The strike was the result of
the demand of Superintendent Porter, o
the Chicago and Kastern Illinois, that the
switchmen give a decision Saturday as to
whether or not they would abide by the
answer given by the general managers' as
kociation to their request for an increase in
pay. The grievance committee announced
that the company had agreed to extend
the tirno in which the men could make
Significance of the Strike.
The strike, though a very short one, is
all important in showing what the switch
men on all the roads coming into Chicago
might do in case the geueral managers ad
here persistently to the resolution which
they passed a few days ago to the effect
that they would not grant an increase in
pay to the men. There was a good deal of
wranguug between the men who had quit
work and the committee because the lat
ter had been so slow in notifying them of
the extension in the time for them to re
turn an answer to Superintendent Porter's
SERIOUS SITUATION AT TOLEDO.
Special Detectives and City Government
at Dagger Point.
Toledo, March 13. The bringing ia by
theAnn Arbor company late Saturday nu:ht
of twenty-five special detectives had added
anew feature to the strike situation which
is hourly becoming more serious. These
detectives were sent here from a Detroit
agency and are under the direction of W
II. Boyd, who was prominent in the rail
way trouble at BulT.tlo last fall.
The Sleuth Threateued With Arrest.
Boyd was seen Saturday by Mayor Em
mick and th- chief of police aud a stormy
meeting ensued iu which the mayor told
the detective leader that his men would be
arrested on sight if they attempted to act.
Boyd replied that he would state what his
men were likely to do after he had a con
fereuce with Manager Ashley, of the Ann
Some to Go to Owosso,
It is an assured fact that some of the de-
tives will be sent to Owosso, Mich., where
there has beeu some trouble letween non
union men and strikers. TLfnast im
portant developments today is o the effect
that there is a centralization of the rail
roads in Toledo to prosecute the weeding
out of dissatisfied employes and if possible
to settle the threateued upheaval before
the opening of the World's fair.
Kelused to Handle Ann Arbor Freight.
Cars were offered to the Lake Shore by
the Ann Arbor road, which the engineers
refused to handle. The engineers of the
heeling and Lake Erie, the Lake Shore,
the Grand Trunk, the Ohio Central, and
probably of other roads have been notified
by Chief Arthur that a "legal strike" Is in
progress on the Ann Arbor. The officials
of the roads to which the Ann Arbor has
delivered freight are reticent and evade di
rect statements by saying that the high
water and rainy weather gives them all
they can do to take care of their own busi
Expects to End the Strike.
A telegram from New York says that J.
M. Ashley, Jr., vice president of the road
has received a telegram from this city stat
ing that the U. S. court has decided that
all railways asked to do bo must accept
Ann Arbor freight, and that an order to
that effect will be issued today; also that
the strikers have asked for an interview
with President Ashley, ex-representative
from this state, as individuals, offering to
declare the strike off if he will meet them
and listen to their grievances. Nothing
confirmatory of this could be obtained
War on the Telegraphers.
Omaha, March 13. Members of the O.
R. T. here say that the western railways
have inaugurated a systematic scheme to
ascertain by means of detectives the names
of all O. R. T. men on their lines. The de
tectives secured admission to the O. R. T.
and worked under regular cards. The O.
K. T. put other detectives on the track and
say they have found out the whole scheme.
Carlisle Seeks solitude..
Washington, March 13. Secretary Carl

that he has not been able to give the condi

some vast wilderness," and as the next
best thing has secured a room far removed
from his ofliee. the location of which is
kept a dark secret, and here he will ponder
undisturbed until some enterprising news
man trails him down.
