Chicago, May CO. Sunday opening of
the World's fair has been postponed for a
week. The local directors hjve held a
meeting, at which it was decided to close
the fair to-morrow in order to give the na
tional commission sufficient time to take
action on the new Suuday-openiuir rule,
which Iihs been submitted to that body.
While the local directors are anxious to
have the sanction of the national rotiimui-

sion in opening the exposition 0:1 the first
day cf the week, it was apparent from
their expressions at the meeting that unless
the courts interfere the great show will be
open May !2S, regardless of any action the
national commission may take. The great
public, which has been clamoring so loudly
for Sunday opening, is becoming impatient
at the delay.
Concede, the Null of the Dispute.
Theodore Thomas has so far made no
renlv to Director General Davis' letter re-
; questing his resignation as director of the
! music bureau of the World's fair. He has
'consulted with certain members of the
j local directory, however, and expressed a
willingness, if the directors so desire, to
! select for future concerts only such artists
' as are willing to use instruments manufac
i tured by exhibitors, provided he is retained
' nt the iiead of the bureau. Xo formal ac
j tion lias been taken by the directors, but
'! the sentiment among them seems to be
' in favor not only of retaining Mr. Thomas,
but of leaving him entirely fret- to arrange
i the programme as iu; chooses.

Notwithstanding the severe criticisms of
some of the members of the national
World's fair commission on his action in
taking a rising vote on the Sunday-opening
question at the dedicatory exercises of the
Illinois State building, Mayor Harrison
expressed no regret, that he took the vote.
"I am in the habit of making my points
when the time and the occasion are aus
picious, saia tne mayor to a reporter.
"The time was ripe yesterday and I im
proved the opportunity. There was ro dis
courtesy to the members of the national
commission and none was meant. I was
invited there to make a speech, and they
were invited to sit on the platform.
Send. Clendening Home fur News.
"I didn't invite them there. I think they
are over-sensitive. Some of their criticisms
and remarks, too, are sadly out of place.
Mr. Clendening, for instance, says he will
never invite me to his office and criticises
my government of the city. He ought to
go down to his own state and see how the
Sunday laws are enforced down there.
Let him go to the Hot Springs, for in
stance. Gambling is rampant on Sunday
all over the state. I think he ought to
pick the beam out of his own eye ln-fore
he tries to remove the mote from my eye.
I think the gentlemen are over-sensitive.

BOYCOTTED MRS. HELEN GOUGAR.
A. Sinter Indiauian and the Tcmperaaee
Apostle Not Friend..
CniCACO, May 20. There was a search
for light at the Art Institute on the lake
front in which there was very little sweet
ness on the contrary it developed a de
cided bitterness between couple of the
sisterhood of eminent women who are just
now regulating the universe in the halls
5f that granite palace. President Bonney ,
who is the prophet of the World's Auxil
iary, was called upon to straighten mat
ters out anti ne ma it witn a suavity all
his own, assisted by Mrs. Henrotin, vice
president of the Woman's association, and
Mrs. Avery, the secretary. The trouble
was this: Mrs. Demurest, of New York,
protested against the boycotting of Mrs.
Jb-ln M. Gougar.
The tirst sign cf war appeared when the
Oilicial programme was published, and it
was found that Mrs. Cougar's name had
been entirely omit'e.l. it was regarded by
her friends as a direct i:i-iilt, and they pre
pared for a iiLiiit. The idea of anybody
trying to h.'.d a c uigre-s of representative
women and ignoring Helen (iougarl Wow!
Not only was Mrs. ijmicat'a name omit
ted from the programme, but an order was
issued by May Wright Sewall to presidents
of all the meetings of the congress, in
structing them to exclude Mrs. Gougar
from participating in their proceedings.
Mrs. Gougar presided at an overflow suf
fragist meeting and when she heard about
the order she expressed herself as sorry
that she had transgressed the directions of
the committee. She started on a tour of
investigation, which resulted in stirring
up a great commotion among the women.
Mrs. Avery said she had heard of such an
order but did not know where ie came
from. May Wright Sewall said it did not
come from her, in spite of Mrs. Gougar's
suspicions that it did. Mrs. Sewall left
for the west at noon, but declared that her
departure was not caused by the morning's
trouble. She was going, she said, to keep
some lecture engagements in the west.
In telling the story Mrs. Gougar said that
May Wright Sewall and herself are bitter
personal enemies, having fallen out over
prohibition work in Indiana. She also said
that the result of President Honuey's me
diation was an appeal to her to remain
and address the meetings at the congress.
After a stormy scene in tiie president's
ollice Mrs. Henrotin, vico president of I
the Congress Auxilary, sent the boycotted !
lady a note, in which the boycotting wa I
disclaimed as far as those in authority 1
were concerned. So if such an order was J
promulgated it in fei have been sent out
by some one not .'. .u hori.ed. At any rate
the storm has (down over and all is serene.
The coi-.grtss centered for the day around 1
the international council of women, which I
was the most important meeting of the
lay. The .-! jeet of the council is the unit
ing 1 tlK.- women 01 an nations in reiorui
i!:ensurcs. Following are some of the for-
ign women present: Florence Fen wick

hoe l'arrea .Greece; Jesefa Humpalzeman,
Bohemia. All the more prominent of the
American women attended the gathering.
Both day and night every hall was
crowded wherever meetings were held.
Among the other gatherings were these:
In the Hall of Columbia Mrs. M. French
Sheldon read a long but interesting paper on
"Woman as au Explorer.'' tfarah B.
Cooper, of Pennsylvania, and Sara L. Ober
holtzi', of Pennsylvania, were the speakers
in Wellington hall, their respective sub
jects being "The Kindergarten System in
the Public Schools," and "The Popular In
culcation of Economy.
Then there were the Woman's Foreign
Missionary Society M. E. church. Baptist
Women's Missionary society, and various
others of the same kind. Unitarian
women held a national alliance meeting.
Non-Partisan W. C. T. U. women were
also on hand. Women's Trades unions
were represented in hall 26 and Susan
B. Anthony spoke on their limitations.
College Alumnae met in hall 33, and in fact
all over the building all day and until
late at night the plea of woman for her
rights nnd privileges and the oindication
of her ability were the topics dealt with
most eloquent and persuasive terms.
O'Ciock ins- .uaitm Zijius.- uouia, presi
dent of the woman's board of Illinois, and
the ladies associated with her threw open
the doors of the woman's room in the Illi
nois building ami held 1111 informal recep

At a special meeting of t he local board
of directors of the World's fair a new rule

jvns examined at the morgue and a re
volver, mask and burglar's complete outfit
(vas found. When killed Mylan was ac
companied by his brother and a man whose
name is not yet known. B. G. Mylan (the
brother) was placed under arrest in the
nflice of Superintendent Pitcairn, of the
Pennsylvania railroad, where he had gone
:o ask transportation for himself and the
corpse of his brother to their home in
llerrsville, Lancaster county.
The evidence secured is to the effect that
ihe men are memliers of a gang of thieves
:hat have been oncating along tbe line of
Lhe Pittsburg, Virginia and Charleston
railway for several months. The gang
have been liold to a remarkable degree.
Mylan was identified by the trainmen, and
upon his person was found a watch, the
property of a brakeman. He was locked
apon seven charges of highway robbery.
Mylan refuses to talk. Detectives are
