The democratic members of the
state senate having in caucus deter-'
mined not to support the compul
sory school bill now on third reading
in the house, will urj;e the passage
of the Ford bill, which comes up :is
a special order on third rend in j; i:i
the senate next Tuesday. This bill
was prepared last January ly demo
cratic party leaders and was jiven ti
Mr. Ford to introduce. There has
never been any special elTort to
advance it. and very little attention
was iriven it until it came up on its
passage the other day. It then became
apparent that the democrats were
divided on the measure and a post
ponement Wit effected. The caucus
was called and the bill will be
parsed. The following is the full
text of the measure:

The Unman Interrogation Point To Be
Observed All Over the Grounds and
Ituildlngn Io Not Bo Backward About
Asking Questions When Your Curiosity
"World's Fair, May 18. Special.
No part of the big show is more Interest
ing than the crowds which visit it. When
you read in the papers that there were
thirty, forty or fifty thousand paid ad
missions to the fair on a given day you
must not Imagine that these figures con
vey an idea of the size of the multitude to
be seen wandering about the grounds and
buildings. In addition to the paid admis
sions there are all the time fifty to seven
ty-five thousand persons within the gates
who did not pay. They are the exhibitors
and their assistants, -watchmen, workmen,
newspaper representatives, the guards,
firemen, guides and rolling-chair men;
also, commissioners, directors, both do
mestic and foreign, and their families.
Even on the dullest dayB we have as a
rule upwards of 100,000 human beings
within the enclosure. But there is no
crowding. The great exposition and its
mammoth buildings swallow them up as
a field of corn takes in the butterflies
which are attracted by its green and glis
It is curious to watch these crowds as
they go on their sight-seeing rounds. If
you want to study human nature this is a
pretty place in which to do it. You be
hold here not only representatives of all
races and countries, but about as great a
variety of human animals as it is possible
to get together in any one spot on the
earth's surface. The throng presents one
characteristic which stands out strongly
above all thers. It is such a conspicuous
thing that after a day passed on the
grounds one goes away with a vivid recol
lection of having fwn a largo section of
humanity in a certain .posture. The pos
ture is that of nn interrogation point.
Wherever you walk or ride, or go, in the
buildings or without, it is the Fame. A
specimen of the race to which we all be
long leaning forward, a look of expectancy
upon his face, the word of inquiry tremb
ling upon his lips. This is a world in
which it seems one-half is put here for the
purpose of asking questions and the other
half for answering them. Later in the
summer, when the crowds get bigger, the
proportions will change. "When the daily
number of visitors rises to three or four
hundred thousand, as it is expected to rise
in September and October, we shall see
each exhibitor, guard or other permanent
resilient of the "White City surrounded by
seven or eight strangers within the gutes,
whilo streams of inquiries and answers
are sent rumiing to and fro.
This is as it should be. This vast, expo
sition is placed hero for the education of
the people. They are invited to come that
they may see and learn. It is the rL;ht of
every man, woman and child to convert
himself or herself into a special committee
of investigation. A great mistake will
any one nuike who through timidity or in
difference fails to understand everything
upon which the eye rests and about which
the curiosity may le roused. Fire your
questions at whomsoever may 1k5 in sight
an exhibitor or his assistant if one is at
hand, and if not at a guard or even one of
the public. You may learn enormously
by keeping the eye open and the mouth
closed. ISut you will learn three times as
much aud remember what you do learn
ten times as long if you ask questions of
people who may bo able to give you intelli
As a rule Americans are not backward
about asking questions. At least, western
Americans are not. The visitors who
come from eastern cities are not so free
with their inquiries. They have a sort of
reservation of manner, as a rule. They
are interested, and would not attempt to
deny that this is a wonderful school, but
they assume that they will be able to get
all tho information they want out of it by
simply looking. Kotso with the westerner,
the genuine, common, everyday Amer
ican. He is from a farm out in Iowa or a
mining town iu Colorado. He stands, for
instance hoforo the marvelous machines
exhibited by a New England watch-making
company. Hehas never seen a watch
made. All tho ideas which ho has ever
had about it are that most of tho work
must le done by men who sit all day long
at a lcnch with a magnifying glass
screwed over their best eye, just as he haa
seen the watch-repairer sit in his home
jewelry shop. But the complicated na
ture, the perfection of finish and the
rhythm of the motion of these machines
fascinates him. He must know all about
it. If ho asks one question he asks fifty,
and as soon as the attendant has explained
to him that the machines need nothing
but feeding in order to enable them to
turn out all the parts of a watch, he wants
to know all the particulars and details.
This is the true method. Permit me to
advise all my readers to come to the fair
in this spirit of inquiry and seeking after
knowledge. It is the way to get your
money's worth, and that is what we all
want. There is no difficulty about getting
It, cither. For it does not matter what a
man may he interested in he will find it
here. Now and then you hear a critic
pass judgment on this fair. In his opinion
the buildings and grounds, their embell
ishment with fountains and statuary,
their electric lighting and landscape
effects, are simply unapproachable. But
In the exhibits he finds a great deal that Js
commonplace. "What do I care," he asks,
long rows of pottery and silks and othel i
fabrics such as I may see any day in tne
shops at home? What do I care about
a display of saws and carpenter tools and
axes and all that sort of thing?" Of
course he doesn't care anything about
them. It is not ms line, lint n ne nap
pens to be the publisher of a newspaper,
and a practical printer, and a man who
loves hi profession and his trade alike (as
every good newspaper publisher, in my
opinion, does) wait till he comes to that
part of Machinery hall in which the
presses are at work, where five or six
daily newspapers are printed right before
his face and eyes. Wait till he comes upon
the complete printing office, tho t ypeset
ting machines, and all the paraphernalia of
his art. Then you will see him prick up
his ears, linger, ask questions, come again
after luncheon and return the next day.
He has simply come upon the part of the
KOT INTERESTED IN THE FAIR.
show which is of acute interest to him.
He has struck his line.
Take, for instance, the undertaker,
the physician, the minister of the
gospel, the lawyer. Surely there isn't
anything here of special interest to them?
O, yes, there is. They will find them
selves attracted to particular spots just as
the machinist, the electrician, the agricul
turist is attracted to his spot. For the un
dertaker there is an illustration of the
burial methods and appliances of all na
tions, including cremation and not omit
ting the mummies of a thousand or two
thousand years ago, which niust mnke him
marvel at the art of his ancient forerun
ners in the business. For the physician
there are nil the medicines and tools of his
trade, not only those -made In his own
country but those used by his brothers in
all the lands of the world. For the minis
ter there are no end of pulpits ancient and
modern, rich and rare, roo, the leloved
Bible in all the languages of the earth all
the curious editions of Bibles, the Bibles
of the ancients aud the moderns, even the
plates from which famous editions have
been printed. For the lawyers t here is a
collection of curios from the department
of justice at Washington which will de
light his eye rare old law books, curious
and ancient briefs and opinions delivered
by famous men.
As these crowds go about, each constit
uent part of them making a sort of walk
ing interrogation point of himself, one
cjitk't help thinking that this is a great
town or city, complete in itself, and
created for tho mere purpose of showing
the architecture of the period anil the
shops and wares of all creation. That is
just what it is. Anil a wonderfully com
plete city we find it when we think of all
the arrangements made here for tho care
of everything and everyone. L'nder tho
ground are miles upon miles of water
pipes and sewers, and tremendous con
duits through which the electrical wires
are carried to a thousand points where
liht is given off at nitxht in sparkling
lamp jewels. There is a railway to carry
people from one end of the city to tho
other. There are all sorts of craft on the
canals, basins and lagoons. Tho city has
its own pier, the greatest pier in the
world, with a line of steamships touching
at it, and even a tramway to carry people
from one end of the pier to the other.
There is a complote fire department, just
such as any city has; only, perhaps, better
than most cities can boast. The police de
partment has more than 2,000 men under
its control, and among them are smart de
tectives by the score on the outhxik for
pickpockets aud confidence men. This po
lice force lias Its guard houses, its patrol
wagoas, its police telegraph line. There is
even a sort of police court in which com
plaints are first heard by a judge known
as "the officer of tho day," and he decides
in case of arrest whether the offender shall
bo let go or turned over to the regular
civil authorities without the grounds for
punishment. There is a medical depart
ment, with hospitals and ambulances and
surgeons. There is a bank, where one
may deposit or draw. The United States
government has here a complete postoflice,
with all departments, and a service of car
riers just as in any other city.
In addition to all this there is a city
council, composed of the board of directors
of the exposition company and the nation
al commission, and they make the laws
and the ordinances. If there is any official
corresponding to tho mayor of the city he
is Director General Davis. This quickly
created city has its music hall, its restau
rants, its telegraph lines, its railway sta
tions, its streets and alleys, its palaces and
its shops, like any other city. But it is a
city in which people do not sleep, except
ing the guardians of peace and property.
It is a city in which there are no hovels
and no display of poverty, no public exhi
bition of vice. It is a city in which the
weakness and the wantonness of man are
excluded, where he has gathered to show
all the good aud great and beautiful things
of which he is capable. Therefore it is an
ideal sort of city. As a social study it is
altogether as interesting as from any in
dustrial or artistic point of view. You
and I will live a long time if we survive
to behold another like it.
Lake any other city, too, it has its idlers
and its drones, its indifferent people, its
denizens who seek pleasure rather than
knowledge. Down at the great pier I saw
a scene today which startled me. It was
that of a score or so of men with fishing
rods in hand, watching their lines in the
waters of the lake. It was indeed startling
to corns upon men who had the time or in
clination for such an avocation as fishinz
in the midst of assembled splendors of the
world. How a man could sit watching a
cork dancing on the water and praying
for a bite from some poor fish while the
palaces and their splendid contents, the
fountains ana rue statuary, and the niov
ing picture made by the masses of people,
were within a few steps from the spot,
was more than I could understand. There
was but one explanation, and that the
trite one, that it takes all kinds of people
to make up a worm.
I was surely right in the observation
made in the second paragraph of this letter
to the effect that human nature is one of
the most interesting studies to be seen at
the world's Colombian exposition.
