Preparing for Monday.
Chicago, April Si. President A. P.
Russell, of the Rnildius Trades Council,
went down to Jackson park to see why the J
carpenters had not obeyed the order to
strike. The pass on which he entered the
grounds iroide that he shall not inter

garded this, however, and ordered the men i
at work on the German building to quit. ;
They refused to do so, and as Russell per- j
sisted in his efforts to in luce the men to '
strike tiny ca'.led on the Columbian guard I
to eject him from the building.
Kuftll C.et a Illack Fye.
After a lively scrimmage, in which Rus
sell jot a black eye and one or two of the
guards were knocked down, Russell was
put in t lie patrol wagon and carted to the
police st.-itkui. II is pass was taken f-o:i
him, and by direction of Director of Works
Hurnham ku was escorted outside the
grounds and released. The refusal of the
men to quit work was a terrible disappoint
ment for the leaders of the movement, but
there never was an effort to jet up a strike
in this city which had les sympathy from
the general public or the press. C'hicng-i

Somehow the strike did not matcrir.lize
as largely as it gave promise to. The
walking delegates were there and the
orders were given for the men not to go to
work, but the interruption was very brief.
It would seem that the 1,500 men who
ordered the strike of 4.000 had no represen
tative of the men at Jackson park among
them. At any rate the men down there
would not be denied the privilege of work
ing and after some warm discussion
with the walking delegates walked into
the park all of them nearly, it is believed
and went to work as usual. Neither did
the sjrike develop to any great extent in.
the city, as it turns out.
How the Carpenters Felt.
The fact is that among the carpenters
there was a well-defined disposition to con
tinue their work. Kvery union man knows
that further agitation of the question that
has provoked so much trouble on the
grounds will result simply in their uncon
ditional discharge. The men who handle
the departments of the World's fair are in
no mood' for ti fling at his criticJff lime.
With but A week to prepare the fair frr
opening they will tolerate no nonsense.and
the men know that their leaders are in the
wrong. They are not in sympathy with
the resolutions adopted by the council, and
it is safe to say that an attempt to enforce
them in Jackson park will cost the union

Chairman Caldwell has promulgated the
agreed World's fair rates and conditions
for Wastera Passenger association terri
tory. They had been made official by the
affirmative vote of the Atchison and are
effective today. As already noted they are
based on a reduction of 2o per cent, from
present rates and provide for cheap ex

A meeting of the board of control of the
World's fair was held at the administra
tion building. The board x-assed upon the
repots of the council of administration
and the director general, ami formulated'
its own report for the national commission.
The members of t he commission are arriv

much important business to do cleaning
up odds and ends before the opening dav.
The most important question to be dis
cussed is the Sunday closing provision.
A Whole I..ot of Work to lie lotie in a
Short Time Time
Only one short week short one day in
fact remains before the exposition is for
mally opened to the public, and into that
week a tremendous amount of work has
to be crowded. Hustling will be the order
of the day, and a complete transformation
will be effected within the grounds during
the week. Installation will bo pushed to
the limit, roads will be made and repaired,
a big force of men will sweep the park from
north to south, clearing away the debris
and removing all traces of construction

rutting a Stopper on It.
But a stop has !een put to this, and
wagons are restricted to a definite line of
roads. The landscape department is con
sequently at woik with all the term im
plies. For it has a herculean job before it.
Probably there are few men who standing
in Jackson park yesterday could have been
convinced that by Monday morning next
anything like grading or hardening could be
done with the system of roads and path
ways through the park. Yet Superinten
dent Alvord was positive that there would
be little to do wheu that time arrived.
There are 50,000 square yards of macadamiz
ing to lay for one thing. The borders of
the roads J have to be trimmed, the dirt
has to be taken off those roads which have
been metaled. The cleaning of the grounds
is a big job.
Many Hands Make Light Work.
It will be done, say the men who are in
charge, and that human steam engine,
Director of Works Burnham, says it will
be done in three days. About 3,000 meu
will be put at work. The matter that is
farthest behind now is the installation of
exhibits. Rush orders have been issued
by Director General Davis and he says be
will dumfound the croakers and pessimists
with the results of the last week's work.
There will be no hitch in the opening of
the fair according to promise, and the
earliest visitors will find the great bulk of
the exhibits in place. That means that
there will be more to see than one pair of
eyes can possibly take in in a month.
Chief Allison, of the manufactures build
ing at the World's fair, has announced
that all the space assigned to dilatory ex
