ivith the eloquence of women of national

EDITORS TALK OF MACHINES.
Not of the Political Vuriety However A
Hide on the Lake. r
Chicago, May 10. The convention of
the Xatioual Editorial association at the
Mecca hotel was slow in resuming busi
ness. The first thing that was done when
the convention was called to order was
the announcement of invitations to the
delegates to visit objects of interest. Clin
ton Rosette, of DeKalb, Ills., president of
the Illinois Press association, read a paper
on typesetting machines and their value
in the composing rooms of small daily and
weekly journals. Mr. Kosette said the
typesetting machine, in its wonderful and
complicated mechanism, is the most inter
esting invention of the last seven years.
Its succes had boen demonstrated and the
machine had come to stay.
After the reading of the paper there was
no discussion on the subject of t lie ma
chines, but A. Vater, delegate from La
fayette. lnl., moved that a committee be
appointed to further investigate the sub
ject. Mr. Vater said that when an editor
proposed to buy oue of the machines he
was asked to pay an extravagant price for
it, or lease it on terms unfavorable to the
lessee. He thought the whole subject
night t ) be looked into further. The
motion was adopted and the chair ap
pointed Mr. Vater, Mr. Proctor (of M;is
sachusetts), and W. C. Sharp (of Connec
ticut) to serv on the committee.
Mr. Munger, of the Xtvv York delega
tion, got up as the type machine matter
was about to lc dismissed and presented a
resolution. President Price was about to
turn it over to the committee on resolu
tions, but Mvnger demanded that it be
read to the convention, and the demand
was complied with. The resolutions said
a certain linotype machine had succeeded
in getting an excellent advertisement into
Mr. Kosette's paper, for it was the only
machine mentioned by that gentleman.
ilie resolution demanded that the makers
of all the other type machines be permitted
to present to Mr. Vater" s committee the
merits of their inventions. The resolu
tion was referred to the resolutions com
mittee. Secretary PaLor read a paper which had
lii-eii prepared by Kobt rt M. White, editor
of the Mexico (Mo.) Ledger, on the subject:
"What Is a Xewspaper and What is
The next (i:tstioii discus.-ed was Where
will the association meet next summer?
Boston came to the front with a scheme to
hold t he convention of lS'.il in the middle
of the Atlantic ocean. It was projosed to
take the whole association on an excursion
LAKE 6TEAMER CHKISTOPHER COLUMBUS,
to Europe, and hold the convention ou the
steamer going over. The trip would ex
tend over two months, and would cost each
delegate $"-J50. Florida extended a hearty
invitation, and so did Asbury Park, X. J.,
and Asheville, X. C. The matter was
finally post poned.
In the afternoon the editors were taken
on a lake excursion on the new M'haleback
steamer Columbus. In the evening the
delegates and their wives wituessed the
performance of "America1 at the Audi
torium. MAYOR HARRISON'S DIVERSION.
He I'roceeds to Take a Vote on the Sun
day Opening Ouestiou.
Chicago. May VJ. There was one feature
of the dedication of the Illinois building
that wasn't down on the bill-?. It was
along in t he afternoon before Mayor Harri
son's speech was called for and it is not
putting it too siroug to say that he made
things very interesting. He opened his
sieech by saying: "Fate has placed me at
the head of a mighty horde of hungry
patriots and I must feed them with offices
so they can draw their pay. This scene
ought to inspire any one to speak a few
words and not speak them badly." The
mayor made a passionate plea for Sunday
opening and iu a characteristic way pro
ceeded to take a vote of the assemblage's
sentiment on the question after picturing
the religious aspect of the fair and con
trasting it with the evil places outside the
gates. When he asked all those in favor
of opening the gates Sunday to rise nearly
one -half did so. The women mostly re
tained their seats.
Among the guests were the national
commissioners and they did not at all relish
the idea of being put to a test vote in such
an impromptu manner by the mayor of
the city. Th y did not intend to goon
record in such a public way, so all kept
their seats, displaying, however, consider
able uneasiness. The mayor was loudly
applauded wnen ne sain: "As chairman
of this meeting I declare the resolution in
favor of Sunday opening carried unani
mously.5' Mayor Harrison was prompted
to put the question of Sunday opening to
a vote by Commissioner T. B. Bryan, vice
president of 5he exposition corporation,
who is an ardent advocate of opening.
He has been fighting the Sunday closers
with all the influence and eloquence at his
He was seen to pass a slip of paper to the
mayor on which he bad written "Put Sun
day opening to a vote, : "When Harrison
read the words be smiled, reflected a few
seconds, and then said audibly: "I'll have
-j maCe rue .trip. lum tue mayor
launched forth and expatiated upon the
arguments of the Sunday ojeners. After
the excitement had subsided a little nearly
every member of the national commission
felt so aggrieved at the mayor's act that
they rose to leave the plaza headed by
President Palmer, but the crowd was so
thrck that they were unable to make their
exit gracefully, so remained standing until
Judge Collins had finished speaking.
At the conclusion of the exercises while
the commissioners were eating their stand
up lunch up ttairs, they gave free vent to
their feelings. Xearly all whether op
posed to or iu favor of Sunday opening
characterized the action of the mayor as an
insult to the commission; as a bullying,
theatrical act which would be promptly
resented by them. They declared that at
such a time the taking of a one-sided vote
was little less than an outrage.
