buildings to the public and then submit
the amended rule to the national board
for approval. This decision has been ar
rived at in view of the extraordinary
pressure brought upon them by the people,
who demand the absolute freedom of the

All About Woman's Progress.
Every speech of the first session had for
a subject the progress of woman. The
chaplain of the day was Professor David
Swing, of this city, and President Bonuey,
of the Congress Auxiliary, opened the ora
tory. A notable attendant was Susan B.
Anthony, who was heartily welcomed.
Mrs. Charles Henrotin. vice president of
the woman's department, made the iu
augural address, the theme of which was
that what stands in the way of, not wom
en but of the world, today is woman's ig
norance of practical affairs and the fatal
conservatism ot the leisure classes. In her
brief address the countess of Aberdeen
said that organization had accomplished
much and perhaps the greatest danger to
day was in over-organization.

A MECCA FOR JOURNALISTS.
Editors and Their Wives Fill a World'
. Fair Hotel.
The new Hotel Mecca, at Thirty-fourth
and state streets, is occupied entirely by
editors and their wives. 1 Ills afternoon at
2 o'clock in the parlors of the hotel the Na
tional Editorial association began its ninth
annual convention, which will extend over
a period of two weeks. The convention
will be composed of about 400 delegates,
representing 4,000 newspapers in every state
of the Union. Altogether there will be
fully 1,500 editors in attendance, all of
whom will be quartered at the Mecca,
which will entertain no otner guesis uur- ,
lng their stay. California, in addition to
its delegates, has sent a delegation of
eighty-seven from its state editorial asso
ciation. There are arrived to-day about 200 Indi
ana editors. Tiie meeting this afternoon
was purely formal and preliminary, the
work of the association not beginning un
til to-night. While the editors are holding
their convention they will "do" the World's
Fair in a thorough manner. The sessions
hereafter will be held from 9 to 12 a. m.
The afternoons and evenings will be de
voted to the World's Fair, which has
placed 20,000 admission tickets at the dis
posal of the editors and their families.
Of the oflicers of the association it may
be said in the first place that Mr. Price,
the president is a native of Wisconsin, and
a little past 40 years of age. He has done
much work on the Wisconsin and Chi
cago papers and is now owner of the Hud
son Star and Times.
Walter Williams, the first vice president,
is scarcely 30 years old. He was born in
Missouri. He learned the printer's trade
from devil to foreman and has made a
name for himself in Missouri journalism.
Joseph M. Page, the corresponding secre
tary, is probably known to more men
over the country than any other man
not in active national politics. He is a
lorn secretary and a good one. And he
is the publisher and proprietorof The Dem
ocrat, at .Terseyville, Ills.
A. H. Lowrie, the treasurer, is an Elgin,
Ills., man, a college graduate, and a sue
cessful newspaper man.
World's Fair Notes.
There is trouble between the United
States customs oflicers and the World's
Fair. The buildings there are custom's
warehouses according to a treasury ruling,
and customs oflicers want free access to
ihe grounds on that account. This they have
been refused, and the result is that a
couple of World's Fair employes, a gate
inspector and a gate keeper have lieen ar
rested by United Estates marshals and will
be tried by L'nited States Commissioner
Paid admissions for the day were 18,627.

Forty-five members of the national com
mission are in town prepared to tackle the
Sunday opening question.
The Columbian chorus of over 1,000
voices, under the direction of Professor
Tomlins, will give Haydn's "Creation"
May 25 in Festival hall.
If the fair is opened next Sunday the
Midway Plaisance will blossom out in all
its glories. The reproduction of the streets
of Cairo, with its countless attractions in
the way of an interesting mixed Egyptian
population, donkeys, camels, and qitiint
bazaars and mosques, will open on Sunday
if the fair is open, and Monday if it is
not. The Old Vienna is being rapidly com
pleted, and it, too, will probably be in full
blast. The Egypt ian temple in the Cairo
street is finished. It costs to get into the
street and aiso into the temple, which is
well worth seeing.

Boston", May 10. This telegram has been
sent to President Thomas W. Palmer,
World's Columbian commission, Chicago:
"One million and a half members of the
Christian Endeavor societies will stand by
the commissioners in bringing an injunc

ney General Olney." It is signed by John
Willis Baer, general secretary.
The Evangelical alliance has passed and
telegraphed Attorney General Olney a
resolution invoking the aid of the national
evecutive to prevent the local directory of
the World's fair from opening its gates on
Sunday. The resolution recites that
"The presence of the United States troops
at Fort Sheridan holds Chicago anarchists
in check. Cannot the administration noti
fy the directory that those troops will be
promptly used if necessary to maintain in
violate the nation's authority and keep the
fair dosed onije Lord's day."
President Botsford, of the Massachu
setts Sunday Protective league, says:
"The league has sufficient funds at their
disposal to set all the wheels of the United
States courts iu motion, in order to avert
what they hold to te a desecration of the
Sabbath, and we fee! it our duty to push
the matter to our utmost ability." The
Boston committee has telegraphed Chair
man Johnson, of Chicago, to withdraw im
mediately the denominational exhibit in
case the fair is opened Sundays.
New Yokk, May 10. The officers of the
American "Sabbath" union, which claims

he appeared Maher got his shotgun and
fired. Von der Embse was bit in the arm

days a small yacht has been seen lying off
Lake Bluff, five miles south of here, and a
boat was sent out to investigate. The yacht
was waterlogged and the body of a man

yacht sailed from this city with four men
on board, all Swedes. Their names are:

and was dangerous to sail.
