Chicago, May 13. On and after May 21
the World's fair grounds will be open every
Sunday. This decision was reached at a
meeting of the directors of the exposition.
President Higinbotham had called upon
Edwin Walker, who is chairman of the
committee on legislation, to submit an
opinion whether or not the exposition can
be opened on the first day of the week in
MODKL OF THE " SANTA M AKIA
jpite of the restriction placed upon this
feature by congress when the appropriation
of ?3,500,Ki0 was panted. Mr. Walker
presented his official and loyal interpreta
tion fcefore the directors, which is to the
effect that the law passed by congress
stipulating that the exposition should 1)2
closed on Sunday applies only to tho
buildings containing exhibits.
' He Makes a llt ini-tion.
Mr. Walker's construction of the act fur
ther says that the buildings erectel for
other uses, the grounds, the Midway Plais
ance with its varied human panorama,
and things pertaining thereto may bo
thrown open to public inspection. After
considerable discussion a resolution was
proposed to open the gates every Sunday
on and after May 21, and to close the main
buildings containing the "exhibits. Tho
resolution was carried by a vote of 23 to ?.
Of the seven who voted nay six were in fa
vorer opening the fair in every dcpartmetkVJ
and the seventh was oppssed to opening
the gates under any conditions. Thns
upon the technicality named the Colum
bian fair will be to all intents and pur
poses opn, leaving the public to visit
throughout the gtounds, to ride on the
electric launches, to enjoy the novelties of
the Venitian gondolas, to patronize any of
the booths, the varied attractions of the
Plaisanc-e ar.d to have a good time gener
ally. The price of admission on Sunday
will be reduced to 23 cents.
Views of I.yiuan J. Oage.
liefere this action was taken Lyman J.
Gage said he had no comprehensive scheme
to overrule the legislation of congress.
Said he: "I maintain the position I have
held right along that the directory should
not stultify itself by improper action at
this time. Congress, however, has not
lived up to its contract of last August, and
the directors will be fully justified in em
ploying every proper means to effect that
which the mass of the people undoubtedly
'want. If it can be done decently I want to
see the gates of Jackson park open next
How St. Clair Looks at the Matter.
Regarding the claim that the park itself
is not part of the exposition, upon which
the decision of the directory seems to be
based. Gen. J. W. St Clair, who is a per
sistent advocate of open Sundays said: -1
don't regard that as a good argument in-
INDUSTRY ADMINISTRATION BCILDING.
asmuch as the park having been formally
and legally dedicated to exposition pur
poses, forms a part of the exposition, and
must be regulated as such." But he said
the national commission had no direct con
trol over the question of open gates Sun
day, and that the directors could open
them if they pleased.
THOMAS WILL PROBABLY STAY,
Bat He Will B Required to Bon Things
Theodore Thomas will probably continue
as musical director of the World's Fair in
spite of the almost unanimous demand of
national commissioners for his removal.
The announcement, however, was made
by General St. Clair that action would
soon be taken compelling Thomas to man
age the bureau of musio in a very differ
ent manner from the way he started out to
run it. General St. Clair did not go into
detail, but .left it ta be understood that
Thomas would be compelled to select ar
tists for the concerts in Music hall who
were willing to play on pianos made by
exhibitors at the fair.
Possibly some of the artists already in
vited would b given an opportunity to
either use exhibitors' pianos in their con
certs or tret off the ..prjosramme. tie inti-
iated that Thomas' authority"' would be
curtailed to a considerable extent and that
before he would be allowed to issue any
more announcements in regard to con
certs in Music hall the names of the artists
would be submitted to the council of ad
ministration. After settling these matters the commis
sioners talked of taking a recess. Com
missioners Burton, of Kansas, offered a
resolution which was adopted by a majori
ty vote, altnougn there was no quorum,
that when the commission adjourns it taki
a recess until noon May 81; that in tlx
meantime all members who can remain dd
so to attend to commission work and that
the commissioners who have not attended
this session of the commission beurgentlj
requested to meet Mayl with that body.
THE NEW ART INSTITUTE.
World's Congresses To Ite Held There In
The new Art Institute on the lake fronl
has been made ready for occupancy. Foi
the next six months the building will
practically belong to the World's Colum
bian exposition, as it gave $200, 000 toward
the building fund for the privilege of using
it for the world's congresses to be held
during the summer and falL The build
ing contains thirty-three halls and six com
mittee rooms, all of which contain work
of art. The entire lower floor will be da
voted to statuary, and in the basement
will be located the. art school's studios.
The building is in the style of the Italian
renaissance, the details classic and of the
Ionic and Corinthian order.
It has cost already over 8000,000, and be
fore it is entirely finished it is estimated
that the cost will be about $1,000,000. Next
Monday the first world's congress will In
held in one of the temporary halls built foi
the purpose at the rear of the building.
There are two of these halls and with seats
arranged in theater fashion they will each
seat 3,000 people. The congress of repre
sentative women will occupy one next
The statue in the Indiana State building
has been temporarily uncovered. It is
nearly seven feet high above the pedestal.
It is the work of Miss Janet Scudder, of
Terre Haute, and is in plaster. The pose
of the figure is striking. The drapery is
more Grecian than anything else, although
there is no striving in it for dramatic ef
fect. The attitude of the head and face
suggest a modest maiden. Miss Scudder
had no one in view in her work. It iH
simply her ideal. She diil not even think
to name it. and that will devolve on the
commissioners from Indiana.
The Maid of the Wabash has leen sug
gested, but inasmuch as that tends to
rob Sentor Voorhees of some of his glory
an objection has been made. The money
to pay for this work was raised by tha
people of Terre Haute, the children of the
city taking special part in the collection.
Miss Scudder is a pulpil of Tuft, and some
of her work is to be seen in the Illinois
building. After the exposition it is the in
tention to have the statue done in marble
and it will bo presented to the st ate. Tho
dedication of the Indiana building will be

NOT A VERY ROSY REVIEW.
Bradstreet Cannot See Any thins; Very Sat
isfactory in Trade.
New Yohk, May 12. Bradstreet's says:
Despite a week of favorable weather gen
eral trade is not improved. Warm weather
has stimulated the demand for lumber and
other building materials, hardware, shoes
and hats. Stocks of print cloths are grow
ing heavier east and prices recede. Steel
billets, cattle, hogs, lard and other staples
are also lower, against which advances are
confined to sugar, due to redaction in the
European crop outlook, and to wheat.
Bank clearings are in line with these con
ditions, seventy-eight cities furnish a total
of tl.137,000,000, no change from last week,
but 11 per cent, higher than last year.
Official reports of imports for nine months
show 14 per cent, increase in value over
the preceding fear, while the decrease in
vaiue of domestic exports was 20 per cent.
Increased importations of luxuries explain
only one-sixth of the total increase in
value, while the reduced value of exports
of breadstuffs, cotton, cattle, fruits, seeds
and petroleum account for the heavy fall
ing off of shipments abroad. y
liecent bank failures have increased the'
sensitiveness in financial circles. Money
