meeting of tliL- directors. Most of the di
rectors were dissatisfied with the plan
loptkl at their previous meeting, by
which it was proposed to open the grounds
Sundays while closing all buildings con
taihing exhibits. Tliis latter action was
practically unanimous, but two directors
out of thirty-six voting against the propo
sition. Must Have the Fair Open.
Iiy the terms of the resolution adopted
the Machinery hall will be closed down on
Sunday, but iu every other respect the fair
will be open in all departments (except
possibly the government building) the
same .s on secular days. But SliS'.liiO of
the appropriation originally made by con
press has been turned over to the exposi
tion company and this amount is to be re
turned to the national treasury after the
debts of the exposition have been paid.
A rule embodying these points will be sub
mitted to the national commission for ap
proval. - What action this body will take
is problematical, as a mere working quo
rum of the members is at present iu the
city. In any event it is the evident pur
pose of the local directors to open the air
Sundays, even at the expense of a rupture
with the national body.
Spiking Some Sabbatarian (aims.
The-price of admission on Sunday is 5.1
cents, the same as charged during the
Weeks. Sabbatarians are disarmed of their
most effective arguments against a seven
day fair by several clauses in the rules
adopted. One of these provides for hold
ing religious services at the park each Sun
day in Choral and Festival halls. Kminent
preachers will ba invited to conduct the
services. Choral hall seats about 7.1 KM
persons and Music hall perhaps 2,50).
More important, however, than this condi
tion are those relating to the operation of
machinery and the working of employes
on Sunday. The rule declares that the
machinerp shall be stopped and that no
employes except those actually needed to
protect the property and perserve the pub
lic peace shall do any work on Sunday and
that those employes who work on tbat day
shall be given a day of rest daring the
Norway's Ruildiug Dedicated.
This morning the Norway building was
dedicated. At 9 o'clock a procession
formed at Scaudia hall, on Ohio street and
marched to the fair grounds' and to the
building. Royal Commissioner General
Charles Kara made a short nddress, which
was followed by Norwegian music. The
following officials were present: Charles
Ravn, royal commissioner general; Annas
C. It. IJerle, secretary royal commission;
S. A. Bucb, commissioner of fish and fish
eries; Otto Sinding, commissioner of fine
arts; Torolf Prytz, commissioner of manu
factures; X. Kjelland, architect to the
roj al commission. I. K. Iioyesen, chairman
local committee; O. A. Thorp, secretary
committee. After the exercises the party
dispersed and spent the remainder of the
day visiting the various departments of
the fair, giving special attention to Nor
way's exhibits, which are very complete.

Chicago, May 17. The 1,000 or more edi
itors who have been flocking to the city for
the last few days to attend the ninth an

association, have held their first' formal
session in the parlors of the Hotel Mecca.
The editors were given a hearty greeting of

Major M. P. Handy made one of his
characteristic speeches welcoming the ed
itors for the World's fair authorities. He
said he had met them all at least by cor
respondence, and then he referred to the
services rendered to the fair by the press
of the country. J. W. Scott, of the Chi
cago Herald, was introduced as president
of the American Publishers' association.
Mr. Scott said he was not sure but that
the country press was more powerful than
that of the cities. He said he was of tho
opinion that the couutry press was in fa
vor of an open fair on Sunday, not with
the machinery in motion, but with the
grounds open to the public. Those who
wished could cover their exhibits. This
sentiment received vigorous applause from
Governor Peck made a few remarks, the
annual address was delivered by G. C. Mat
thews, editor of the Memphis Appeal-Avalanche,
and then Past President Cappeller,
of Mansfield, (.)., presented to President
Price a gavel. Mr. Cappeller's speech was
a felicitous one. He reminded the associa
tion of their visit to the Dutch Flat and
Gold Hun mines, where they saw gold
taken from the earth and refined in fact,
all the various mining processes. The pro
duct of all the processes, a bar of pure gold,
was presented to the association, and at his
suggestion that gold was worked into the
gavel, which was made wholly of California
Mr. Cappeller described the emblem of au
thority. The head was made of man
z tiiita wood. A gold baud encircles the
center, having that fact inscribed. Upon
a bend around one end is an inscription
stating that the gold of which the band is
made was taken from the Gold liun mines,

other end is ''Presented to the President,
W. S. Cappeller, in Trust for that liody
the association, by Messrs. Gould ai.d
Doolittle, on Behalf' of the Stale Miners'
Association." The handle is of orange
wood, with two bands, one bearing the in
scription: "A drop of ink makes millions
think," and the other "An honest newspa
per is the noblest work of mau."

folio.ved by hundreds ef eyes. The arrival
pfthe countess of Aberdeen was greeted
with an iu formal reception.
The two large meetings in Columbus and
Washington halls were centers of general
interest. Here discussions embracing the
whole range of woman's development were
in progress most of the day. Among the
department congresses the most interest
ing was that at which dress reform was
discussed and exemplified. The other
halls scattered around the building con
tained audience small in number and de
voted to narrower fields of work. Many
of the delegates tried to divide their at
tention equally and make a round of the
attractions. Shortly after noon the busi
ness of the session was completed "and the
separate audiences merged into a great re
ception in the corridors on the main floor.

While the main meetings were in session
a number of report congresses were called
to order in different parts of the building.
In hall So. C Julia Ward Howe presided
over a congress called to consider the ad
vancement of woman. In hall No. 20
Mary Frost Ormsby called to order a con
gress composed of women's societies. The
organizations represented here were the
International Board of Women's Christian
association. Woman's Franchise of Eng

of Illinois, the National Iiemocratic Influ

club of England. About 10t women gath

Mrs. Lucy Stone, of Boston, spoke
of the advance of the bloomer and dress
reform in general. The report of the com-
coiumittee for the promotion
of physical culture and cor

was compelled to stand on a
table to satisfy the feminine
curiosity about hercostume.
This was followed by a re

followed by Annie Jenness Miller and Oc
No speech-making was indulged in during
tne aifernooii in any part ot ine building.
The World's Fair was the principal attrac
tion. Lillie Devereaux Blake, of New
York, read a paper iu the afternoon before
the congress iu the Woman's building at
the fair. The subject was "Our Forgotten
Foremothers," but the attendance was not
large ou account of the sessions in the down
town art palace. The night sessions began at
7:45 o'clock in the palace. In the hall of
Columbus Mrs. Mary Putnam Jacobi, of
New York, spoke on "Woman in Science;"
Angusta Cooper Bristol, of New Jersey,
on "Woman the New Factor in Industrial
Economics." In the hail of Washington,
Julia Ward Howe, of Massachusetts, and
Kate Tupper Galpin, of California, spoke.
Hall No. was devoted to the Order of the
Report congresses were held in halls 6
and 'y. Ten societies were represented in
these halls whose obiects ranged from anti
opium to sociology. The-National Council
of Women held forth in hall 8, where the
time was occupied in addresses by the pres
idents of fifteen societies, amongst them
Sorosis and the National American Woman
Suffrage association. Hall 8 contained the
international committee of young women's
Christian associations, addresses being de
livered by Mrs. Jane Bancroft Robinson,
ot Detroit, and Mrs. William Boyd, of
