matter will be brought before the board
of reference and control today. The quar

which nearly $1,000,000 have been pro
vided, is threat ued. Still there are those
who cannot see anything like fuirness in
permitting eastern music men who have
refused to exhibit at the fair because they
could not hav. things their way to be put,
so f.r as actu.s! exhibition is concerned, in
n better position than those who have
stood by the exposition directors.

Chicago. May 38. The annual address
to the Editorial association was the "piece
de resistance" of the feast of reason and
flow of soul at the second session of the
convention. Before he took the floor W.
E. Pabor was elected temporary secretary
to fill the vacancy caused by the death of
William Kenedy. President Price began by
congratulating the association on the fact
that the good attendance was an indication
that the editors were alive to their best in
terests. He then paid a feeling tribute to
those who would meet with them no more,

vigorous Major Hundy, the Stalwart

He thought the association did not keep
in close enough touch with the primary
bodies that semi delegates to the associa
tion. With reference to a permanent home
for the association he did not see any prac
tical plan for it, but advised keeping the
matter to the front in hopes that a way
would be found. He suggested tlie found
ing of a historical, artistic, and curio col
lection such as tiles, manuscripts, pictures
of noted journalists, novel machinery, etc.
In discussing schools of journalism he said
they should teach everything from figur
ing on an advertisement to managing a
newspaper, including the mechanical part
of the business.

Chicago, May 18. Four of America's
greatest act resses were the attraction at the
hall of Washington at night, where a large
and enthusiastic audience gathered tohea"

Mrue. Modjeskn, Georgie Cayvan, Clara
Morris and Julia Marlowe. Miss Cayvan'fl
remarks created the greatest enthusiasm
on account of her style of delivery and the
aptness of her subject. Mine. Mojeska
opened with an elaborate review of "The
Endowed Theatre." She was followed by
Georgie Cayvan on "Woman in the Stock

historical poems and her six or seven con.

Mme. Mojeska spoke of the nun's works

of the first women players who, she said,
were the nuns of the Gandersheim con

ance on the professional stage was in the
sixteenth century in Spain, where she was
not apparently welcomed. Italy was the
next country where woman appeared upon
the stage. In IGoO Marie Vernier, a French
actress, made her debut. England fol

closed her remarkable address by saying:
"If the influence of our sex upon the
theatre is beneficent, can we say the same
of the influence f the. theatre upon the
woman herself f In other words, does the
life of an actress tend to develop her better
qualities or does it do the contrary? I
should not like to give a decisibe reply to
the question. I may say, however, that it
seems to rue that while the life we lead
exposes us to a great many temptations,
s timulates too much our vanity, and takes
us sometimes too far from onr every day,
duties, it must cenainiy develop in us a
sen se of independence and therefore of re
sponsibility. As for morals, I can onlv
