that the men who worked up this

READY FOR A RUSH.
Railroad Preparing far the Fair Item of
The World's Fair has made a great
er boom in railroad interests than
anv other event perhaps that has
ever occurred in the history of the
nation. It has been a source of in
spiration to many other branches of
business, but to none perhaps more
than to that of the railroads. F'or
months past nearly every railroad
both east and west of Chicago
ami especially the great connecting
trunk lines have been actively en-
. , . e
gaged in making arrangements ior
the rush of business. "Sew time
carils for better connections, new-
rolling stock and in fact everything
that will add to the comfort and con
venience of the traveling public has
been provided by the dtllerent lines
in order to make themselves more
popular. The demand for sleeping
cars has been so great that the com
bined efforts of the manufacturers
has been unable to supply the wants
of ihe roads, and many orders that
had been placed with the Pullman
company and others have been can
celled because of the unability of
manufacturers to supply them before
the latter part of the summer. The
4 . i.i
ame is true of other kinds oi cars
and a general complaint is going up
on account of the scarcity of passen
ger cars iu general.

The republican ahlermen are try
ing hard to be in fashion. Fallow
ing the example of their democratic
colleagues, they held a caucus yes
terday. It was a very somber affair,
and the prevailing question was,
"where are we at?" None present
could give a satisfactory explanation,
and after querying for some time
it was decided to send a pro
nuncianiento to Mayor Medill. It
was to the effect that they wanted to
