World's FAiif Grounds. Chicago, May
4. Unless the national legislature of the
United States shall make a new law or
choose to amend the existing statute the
gates of the World's fair will not be opened
on Sunday. Just before the adjournment
of the session of the national commission
Commissioner St. Clair, of West Virginia,
submitted the report of the judiciary com-
GONDOLA ON LAKE MICHIGAN,
mittee on the subject and it was placed on
the clerk's desk to be read at next session.
The report, wih, was given to tha press, is
"The judiciary committee having care
fully considered the preamble and resolu
tion introduced by Mr. Eibock, of Iowa,
under the order of reference made to it by
the commission at its session of April 26
last, begs to submit the following report
PofSier Action of the C'oiiiniission.
"At the seventh session of the commis
sion the World's Columbian Exposition
submitted to the commission a set of rules
which had been prepared and adopted by
it for the government of the exposition,
one of which is the following: 'The gates
shall be open subject to the limitations
hereinafter provided for each day of the
week except the first day thereof, com
monly called Sunday, from the 1st day of
May to and including the 30th day of Octo
ber, 1893, unless otherwise authorized anJ
provided by competent authority.'
"This rule having been duly considered
by the commission was modified so as to
read: 'The exposition shall be open for the
admission of visitors during the six months
commencing the 1st day of May and end
ing the 30th day of October, 1S93, on each'
day of the week subject to the limitations
hereinafter provided (except the first day
thereof, commonly called Sunday), and on
said last mentioned day the said exposition
and the gates thereof shall be closed.'
Reports Against the Resolution.
"It will be seen, therefore, that the stand
ing rule so adopted as aforesaid provides
that the said exposition and the gates
thereof shall be closed on Sunday during
the time the said exposition is to run, so
that the question may be considered as set
tled unless the said commission may here
after lawfully make an order mollifying the
same. Your committee therefore unani
mously reports against the adoption of said
The Onestion Will Not Down.
The Sunday opening question will not
down. As far as the national commission
is concerned it is probable that the report
of the judiciary committee finally disposes
of the matter. Hut it is now said that
there is a strong feeling among the mem
bers of the local directory that the body
may legally use its discretion in interpret
ing the agreement with the government
whereby, in consideration of receiving the
appropriation of $2,500,000, they were to
close the fair on Sunday. They assume
that congress by entering into this agree
ment recognized their right to deal with
the question, and claim that because the
agreement has been violated by the with
holding of part of the appropeiaeion they
are under no obligation to keep their part
of the contract.
Will Quietly Ignore the Conditions.
It now seems likely that no further
formal action will be taken, but that in
the course of a few weeks the local direct
ory will quietly authorize the admission
on Sunday of ticket holders who may
wander around the grounds and profit
by the educational advantages of the big
show without the noise and activity that
will characterize the exercises on the other
days of the week.
That Everlasting Piano Is Very Forte.
The majority report on the piano matter
in substance stated that the council of ad
ministration had full jurisdiction in the
matter and that its action is authorita
tive. The minority report of the same com
mittee on this subject was submitted by
Burton of Kansas. The report dissents
from the majority, and asks that the
whole matter be referred to the joint com
mittee on conference to settle this question.
Massey spoke in favor of the majority re
port, but without decisive action the com
Bot Paderewski Has Gone.
Paderewski has gone, however". What
effect this will have on the piano situation
remains to be seen. Paderewski played to
wildly clamorous women a second time in
Music hall. They came in droves and
scores, and coughed and sneezed
and immolated themselves on all
altars of discomfort before their idol.
They cried aloud in crazy enthusiasm and

work of installation was in progress. The
galleries which are open are not in proper
condition for public inspection, but the set
tees and aisles were filled with admirers of
the beautiful works of art which come
from the German and Austrian empires.
General Miles and the. mayor have had a
conference with regard to the reception
which is to be given to the officers of the
naval review neet wuo ree.iii nere on
the 6th. The arrangements had been left
largely to General Miles. The following
programme is contemplated: The sixty of
ficers will be met on the road Friday by the
finance committee of the council. General
Miles, Commander Huff, and First Lieu
tenant Hakar, of the United States navy
ptaff. They will be escorted to their hotels
on arrival, and in the evening will be taken
to see "America." Saturday morning the
party will be taken in tally-ho coaches
through Lincoln and Garfield parks, includ
ing a stop at the mayor's home on Ashland
avenue. In the afternoon they will go to
the World's fair grounds.
A demand signed by more than 1,000
Columbian guards will be made upon the
directors of the exposition for an increase
of $15 per month in theii pay. The guards
claim that $tH a month is too small for
them to live decently, and that they were
led to believe that their pay would be in
creased May 1. ' They alo claim that the
cost of living at tbe fair has advanced so
much since tbe opening day that t2 a day
will not cover it.
The number of paid admissions to the
fair was 15.876.

NO PROCESSIONS IN THE GROUNDS.
Chief Burnham Makes a Rule lie May
- llace to Rescind.
Chief of Construction Burnham has de
cided that no processions will be allowed
through the World's fair grounds, and this
action will probably play havoc with the
arrangements made by foreign govern
ments, as well as the different states of
this country, to have celebrations in their
respective buildings. Chief Burnham takes
the ground that these processions would
block up the roadways and that other vis
itors having equal rights would be com
pelled to keep out of the line of march.
The case upon which this decision was
based is that of Norway, whose commis
sioner. General Ravn, recently asked the
expositien officials that when the Nor
wegian building opened May 17 a proces
sion might be formed and permitted to

It is possible that the enter may nave to
