Synopsis of 'Ihfe Tno Keportu on Sunday

The national commission beijan at 10 a.
Hi. today the discussion of the reports on
unday opening from the judiciary com
mittee. As heretofore stated there are two
cportsind their substance is as follows:
The majority report upholds the former
attitude of the national commission in
fuvor of closing the gates and says the
TAKING AJU ORIENTAL'S riiOTOG CArH.
commission cannot now take lawful action
In the matter. The acceptance of the
Bouvenir coins made the law binding and
the commission cannot change it. The
present rule adopted by the commission is
the existing law in the matter and cannot be
changed except by a majority of the vote of
the commission not the vote of a quorum.
The minority report signed by St. Clair
and Hurton holds that it is in the power of
the commission to so amsnd the laws as to
permit, the gates to be opened ou Sunday,
The commission was clothed with power to
act in this matter and th United States
has now no statute which compels the gates
of the fair to be closed on Sunday. It re-
om mends the stoppage of all machinery
Binl that religious services bj held in the
dilTerent state buildings.
The fourth week irf the exposition opened
auspicnously in point of weather and at
tendance. The whole White City was
aglow with warm sunlight, giving a more
dazzling whiteness to the storehouses ot
the industries and arts of the nations. The
paid admissions were 30,T2.'l. Festival hall,
the greatest structure devoted to music at
the fair, was dedicated. The occasion was
one tif marked interest for. music lovers,
and an audience which completely filled
the besutiful auditorium greeted Director
Thomas when he waved his baton for the
opening nunituT of a Wagner programme.
The orchestra had been increased to 150
pieces for the occasion. Mine. Materna was
India's pavilion was opened to the public
with a H'tddhist ceremony in conformity
with the religious customs of her majes
ty's Indian empire. A Hrahmin pundit or
priest acted as master of ceremonies and
performed a variety of strange autics in
front of ugly idols. When the visitor
passes through the Hindo-Saracenic en
trance to the pavilion he is confronted by
a mat hie shrine tilled with gods of man
sizes and forms. The programme consist
ed of native music and native tea served
by Hindoos in native costume, besides ad
dresses from S. J. Tellery, Indian art ware
commissioner, and Richard lilechynden,
represent ing the viceroy of India.
The Danish silon in the Fine Art-i
building was alsoipened and attracted an
admiring throng of lovers of paintings.
The exhibition is a small but well select
td one, thoroughly representative of the
best Danish works.
The-liding railway of European inven
tion which is on the Midway Plaisanee
was inspected by Piiuce Andre Poniatow
ki, of Paris, and prominent railway of
ficials from the east who are interested in
the new system. The prince owns all the
European rights, and has also formed a
company to introduce the transportation
system in America. The motor and cars

Tiie motor is cigar-shaped to otter the least
resistance to air.
Visitors should remember that to buy
any of the exhibits is a violation of the tar
ill laws. The last case of any one getting
into trouble was when P. P. Nemitz, agent
of thirty Swiss exhibitors, was arrested for
selling a visitor a diamond brooch. The
matter was adjusted before the United
States commissioner, although for a time
it threatened to become an international
Among the visitors at the fair was Vice
President Stevenson, who found his way to
the national commission's room, and was
given an informal hut hearty reception.
While there he was presented with a basket
of rosy apples by an Illinois admirer, and
passed them around among the commis
sioners, who with the vice president were
soon lunching olt the fruit.
The merchant tailors, who are the only
ratail tradesmen to have a building of their
own at the fair, opened their $.0,0ou build
ing on the banks of the north lagoon. The
building is Ionic in style aud the interior
is devoted to social as well as exhibition
purposes. President Walshe, of the Na
tional exchange, welcomed .the guetts.and
other addresses followed.
The exhibit in the Tailors' building con
sist of complete suits of clothing mounted
on dummies without heads. Hut those of
Andrew Patterson, of New York, and G.
W. Matthews, of Chicago, are exceptions.
Mr. Patterson shows a maguiliceut creat
ure modeled in the finest wax, with delicately-tinted
cheeks, dressed in the state
liverv of her majesty yueen Victoria. Mr.
Matthews' exhibit is a wax figure of Presi
dent Cleveland in a riding suit and mount
ed on a horse. A lady equestrian is on one
side and a figure of General Miles on the
Commander Davis, who has been placed
in charge of the entertainment of the In
fanta Eulalie, has engaged rooms for her
at the Palmer House during her visit to
Chicago. The e: act time of her arrival
will not be known for a few days.

EULALIE VISITS THE TREASURY.
Her Kxperieuce With American Women
Who Wanted to See ltoyalty.
Washington, May 23. The Infanta
Eulalie spent the day sight-seeing. She
visited the treasury department where
Secretary Carlisle received her and took
her to s'5 LTucle Sam's treasury vaults.
The uews of the princess' arrival had
spread so that the corridor was filled with
men find women. The women were the
more strenuous in their efforts to see her
royal highness. They fairly climbed over
the men in trying to reach the grated
doors. It was the infanta's lirst experi
ence with a crowd of American women
and she enjoyed it.
After the Infanta had seen all that was
to be seen slit came out into the corridor
again on the way to the carriage, leaning
ou the arm of Secretary Carlisle. "Good
bye, good-bye," cried the Infanta to the
women as she passed through their ranks.
"Good-bye, tl. auk you," she cried again,
smiling, while even the stern face of Mr.
Carlisle relaxed. The princa and the oth
ers in the p-'rty were laughing heartily,
and as they entered the carriages they
caught the echoes of more flattering re
marks about the beauty and gracefulness
of the princess.
Suicide of a Septuagenarian.
C.i:lylk, Lis., May 23. Phillip Siebert,
a well-known citizen of New Athens, has

lets lodged star the heart and one in his
brain. It is thought that he committed
the deed when in a Jit of despondency. He
was iO years ot ago.
