Walker, if New York, ar.d Mr. Blowitz,
the celebrated European correspondent,
but if he was in town ho hadn't appeared.
Other Topics That Were lliscussed.
He had been set down for an address.
The topic for this morning was "The
Ethics of Journalism," on which an address
was delivered by Miss Lillian Whiting, of
Massachusetts, and the discussion was led
by Mrs. i;ila Peat tie, of Nebraska. The
other addresses were "The Keflex Influence
of the Social Column on Society," by Miss
Mary I. Nimmo, of Washington, and Miss
Belle Grant Armstrong, of Massachusetts.
"The Kvolution of the Newspaper Woman,''
by Mrs. Eliza Archard Connor, of New
York, and Mrs. Ida J. Harper, of Indiana;
"The Ideal Journalist," by Miss Hester M.
Poole, of New Jersey, and "Modern Pro-
press Among Oriental omen, by Mine,
llanna Karany, of Beyroot, Arabia. At "2
p. m. the Editorial association began a pop
ular discussion in a sort of go-as-you-please
season of oratory, in which anything that
same first was the subject for the time.
Publisher Talk About Mechanic.
The publishers discussions so far have
been mostly mechanical about labor sav
ing machinery. The great want now felt
is a machine that will fold, wrap and ad
dress 'steen thousand or so papers a min
ute, and at the last meeting of the associa
tion a committee was appoiu;ed to inquire
into the matter, lloskins, of Nashville,
had found a machine with a capacity of
only 3,500 papers an hour, which in fact had
only been operated so far by hand. John
Morris, business manager of the New York
World, cross-examined Mr. Hoskins closely
about the mailing machine, and S. II.
KifctTmtuiD, of The Washington" "Star, and
Mr. Scott also joined in the discussion.
Measurement of Type.
As the matter of folding, etc., was worth
1,000 a week to some papers it was finally
decided to set mailing room experts on the
track, the association to pay the expenses.
The measurement of type has been a bone
of contention between "prints" and their
employers, and a committee had been in
conference with the Typographical union,
type founders, and others interested. The
result of the conference whs the recom
mendation of a new system of measuring
type by which whether the type were "lean"
or "fat" the compensation paid the compos
itor would be uniform. It was expected
tlmt this lecommeiidatiou would be acted
upon, but it was referrred to the executive
committee with power to act.
Kecitiin and Collation.
The National Press league gave a splen
did reception in the veiling at the Audito
rium for the members of the press cua

object being to extend a genial welcome to

MASSEY IS AN INJURED MAN.
He Wants to Ilesigu His Chairmanship
Doings at the Fair Grounds.
WoKLD's FAIK Gnot'NHS, May 25. The
action of the national commission in abiding
by the new law submitted by the local di
rectory opening the gates of the fair on
Sunday has caused considerable dissension
in that body, and resulted in the resigna
tion of Mr. Massey from the chairmanship
of the judiciary committee, which ren
dered two reports on the Sunday closing
question. When the commission was called
to order fifteen members were lacking to
make a quorum. Massey was given the
floor, and said the action of the body in
adopting the minority report as a substi
tute for the majority report on the Sunday
opening matter seemed to indicate a lack
of confidence in his committee.
He said that on three or f . ur occasions
the commission had failed to act upon re
ports rendered on matters referred to his
committee and this action was plainly a
' Tote of "no confidence" in the ability of the
juaiciary committee.ot wmcii lie was chair
man. He had no feeling in the matter ,hu
said, ami bo;ed his associates, for whom
he had the highest regard, would accept
bis resignation as chairman of the judic
iary committee. There was . general ob
jection to this front nearly all the comuiis- j
Biouers present, which was condensed into
a resolution introduced by Myers of Ken
tucky, to the effect that the commission
refuse to accept the resignation and tender
Mr. Massey a vote of thanks for the able
work of his committee and renewed confl
uence in its members.
The commissioners who rose one after
anether to eulogize 'hairman Massey and
ash him please not to resign, so played
a pou the emotion of that body that it real
ly looked at one time as if the tearful
scene which fallowed Mrs. Potter Palmer's
"biull" at resigning front the woman's
board, would be repeated in the commis
sion. Finally Massey was given twenty
four hours to think over what he had said
and try to reconcile his conscience with
remaining at the head of the judiciary com
mittee. There was a slim attendance of
the commission, but that did not prevent
Hundley, of Alabama, from resurrecting
the corpse of Sunday closing and there
will be more postmortem talking.
The council of .idmnisitration has promul
gated two important general orders. The
first was one directing Howard Tucker,
superintendent of the bureau of admis
sions, to throw the gates o f the park wide
open next Sunday. The second, provides
that the gates will be open hereafter until
11 o'clock and the buildings until 10::;0 p.
in. on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Satur
days of each week. In addition to these
regular opening evenings special nights
will be designated by the council from
time to time as required by extra attrac
tions to be xiruvided. On the regular open
ing evenings the Chicago, Cincinnati and
oiisa s nanus win play alternately every
CELEBRATION BY BRITISHERS.

The celebration at the park of Queen Vic
toria's birthday by Canadians and British
ers was an enthusiastic protest against an
nexation to the United States of Canada.
The Kev. Leonard Gaetz, of the Northwest
territory, characterized the annexation
ists cf Ontario and Quebec as "vigorous
kickers" who out;ht to cross the borders rf
they wanted to cease being British sub
jects. George K. Cockburn, member of
parliament for Toronto; Senator Perley,
of the Northwe st territory, who xiresided;
Commissioner Fenwick, of New South.
Wales, and representatives of Nova Scotia,
Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Ceylon, India,
British Guinea and Jamaica denounced
any attempt to break the ties which bound
the colonies to the British empire. Many
pleasantries were indulged in at the ex
pense of Uncle Sam, Chicago and Amer
icans. The fervor of the asse mbly's patri
otism was expressed by the singing of
"God Save the Queen," "Ked, White and
Blue," "Kule Britannia," and other British
A curious feature of -the celebration was
that it was taken part in by the Quackuhl
Indians, who form part of the ethno
logical department of the fair. Their home
is on Vancouver Island, and they proved
themselves loyal subjects of Victoria. The
whole band of this queer looking race of
North American Indians boarded the big
war canoe which they brought from Can
ada and embarked on the south pond near
where they are quartered. All were decked
in holiday dress, their faces were daubed
with paint, and their spirits aipeared to be

British Hag of the naval regulation was
unfurled from the starn of the rough, un
wieldy boat, and the folds blew in the face
of the Quackuhl chief, who stood erect with
a tambourine in bis bands. Each side of
the boat was manned by braves who guided
and rowed it with paddles. Another Quack
uhl stood at the prow, und the center of
the boat was occupied by squaws and pap

boatload of braves stood up and howled
