any ceniereu in ine national commission
and what it would do about a number of
important questions, the most prominent
being the opening of the World's fair on
Sunday and the piano war.
The opening concert of the fair was giv
en during the afternoon in Music hall.
The attendance was only moderate. The
overture was the "Consecration of the
House" by Beethoven, played by Thomas'
orchestra of 114 pieces. Padeiewski played
a conorto in A minor by- himself and a
nocturne by Chopin. Both were enthusi
astically applauded. The concerts will be
continued each day during the fair.
The army of workmen was again called
ir.io service and everything will be pushed
night and day until the display is com
plete. The macadam roadways aud walks
around the ground are to give way to as
phalt. It was demonstrated yesterday to
everybody's satisfaction that while mac
adam may le well enough in its way it is
not a success when being tramped upon
in rainy weather. The work was com
menced at once.
Outside the grounds the cable car3 un
loaded thousands of passengers, many of
whom were attracted by the side shows

takers had an easy time of it. Tho paid

ointment of a committee, which after
some difficulty appeared with Colonel
Davis. Burton at once arose and stated to
the director general that in view of the
piano controversy now involving the au
thorities of the fair a resolution had been
adopted last Friday requestinj; him (the
director general) to remove from Music
hall the piano from the works of the firm
which was not an exhibitor. Burton
wished to know if the instrument had been
removed. Colonel Davis said he hail given
the order to have the piano removed, but
had received no advices that his order had
been carried out or any report whatever on
That "Pianny" Was Still There.
Clendenning of Arkansas said that he
saw one of the pianos there at 9 o'clock
"Sow," said Burton as he jumped to his
feet, "we have ordered the director general
to remove the piano;heJhas given his order.
The piano has not been removed. The coun
cil of administration is discussing this
matter now in their secret session. What
right have they to discuss a matter wc
have already settled? We are. in my mind,
becoming the laughingstock of the world."
Tousley of Minnesota said the national
commission had no right to settle the mat
ter and had been in error in attempting it.
He said the concessions and side shown of
a musical nature were- under the control of
the music icjartiieiit and that the nation
al commission had nothing to do with any
thing outside of the fair.
8t. Clair rrui(,K a Way Out.
Burton didn't look at it this way. He
thought the commission coutrolcd the
matter. Just at this time t. Clair and
Massey came in from the meeting of the
council of administration and said that
body would probably have the matter set
tled in a short time if the commission
"But," said Burton of Kansas, "Mr.
Presideut, that concert is advertised and
will begin with that piano on the stagi
in half uu hynr unless something is done.
I demand that decisive action be taken at
St. Clair stated that if the commission
would permit Massey and himself to re
turn to the meeting an order would be sent
out in fifteen minutes which would close
the Music hall until the matti r had been
settled. This was satisfactory and Presi
dent Palmer, who occupied the chair, per
mitted the gentlemen to depart.
PERSISTENT PIANIST PADEREWSK1.
lie Is at tlio lottom of llie Trouble and
lie Has It His AVay
The man who is innocently, perhaps
causing ail the trouble is the great pianist
and hair raiser, I'adcrewski. He only plays
on one American piano. When in Kuropa
he, presumably, only plays on one Euro
pean piano. But in this country it was
out of the question for him to evoke tha
celestial strains that have made him the
demigod of the music cranks on any except
one instrument utterly impossible. Jsow
it is apparently the fact that this piano is
the pet aversion of the World's fair people
because tb.2 manufacturers are leaders of
the movement that withheld a number of
pianos from exhibition. The World's fair
people are very much opposed to advertis
ing in the Music hall a piano that is not on
exhibition, and especially this cue. But
Paderewski will play on no other and
Paderewski, it seems, is indispensable.
Musical Director Thomas was on .the
great artist's side also, and when the re
port of the council of administration came
in, which it did in half an hour, it was
found that the man with the hair had
won. The report stated that the question
was one of administrative detail and one
over which the national commission had
no jurisdiction; that the council had"ex
amined into the matter thoroughly and
would protect the interests of every piano
exhibitor by a rule compelling the use of
their instruments at World's fair concerts,
or in other words that the instruments of
exhibitors must be used at rehearsals, but
that soloists would be permitted to per
form on any piano they might choose at
concerts. After considerable discussion
the report was adopted.
It was thought that the judicial commit
tee to which the Sunday opening question
was referred would report, but that body
tailed to get a quorum and the matter
went over. The principal interest of the
