Chicago, May 27. Jutlgo Stein's court
room was filled with interested listeners
when the Sunday opening ciise of Clhig
ni.iu against the World's Columbian Expo
sition company and the South park com
missioners came up.. Attorney William K.
Mason was there, ready to gc on record as
"The People's William,'' nnd fight for the
injunction his client seeks, despite the fact
that the directory and nation1, commission
have resolved to open the fair on Sunday.
Attorney E lwia Walker was present to
represent the exposition, an I District At
torney Milchrist appeared in the. double
capacity of watching the case on behalf of
the federal government .and as the "friend
of the court," as Attorney Walker sug
gested. Walker's Argument.
National Commissioner Hundley was
ilso present in similar capacity, while At
torneys Uault and Street were there to in
sist that certain Sabbatarians whom they
represent should be allowed to iutervene
as complainants. The intervening petition
filed by Attorney Uault prays for a tempor
ary injunction restraining the exposition
oflicials and directors of the corporation
from opening any part of the exposition on
the first day of the week. Attorney Walker
argued that the act of congress relating to
Sunday closing was merely a condition to
an appropriation. The World's fair direc
tors had accepted the condition with the
appropriation, but as congress had after
ward withdrawn a portion of the appro
priation the directors were no longer bound
to fullfil their part of the contract.
Mason Wanted Double Surety.
Mason maintained that the act of con
gress violatosthecoustitutionof the United
States and the state of Illinois. He merely
wanted u restraining order to prevent the
local directors from changing the existing
rule to open t he fair Sundays. It was con
tended by Attorney Uttlt that inasmuch
as the directors had continued to receive
money from the government after the al-
pity the rooi: cii.vii; prsiiEit.
leged violation of the contract by congress
their conduct in opening the gates at this
time could not be justified. After the ar
guments had closed the court said that
while it was conceded by all that the ques
tion should be disposed of at least teiu
porarilv as soon as possible, yet the ques
tion was of such character and of such
grave and serious nature that the court
was not disposed to pass upon it at once
but it would do so Monday morning.
Nothing in the Way Tomorrow.
Judge Su.-in said it was r.ot apprehended
that other courts would take action and
there could be no injury to the complain
ants by the delay. He had beeu assured
bv United States Attorney Milchrist that
no action would lie taken by him until
then, tiault promised that nothing would
be done so far ns he was concerned while
the court had the matter under advise
meat and court adjourned.
Vncle Sum's Lesal Movement.
When told the reason that Judge Stein
gave for not rendering rn immediate de
cision on the Sunday closing case, DiS'
trict Attorney Milchrist said that Judge
Stein had been informed that though the
bill would be tiled in the United States
court today a hearing would not be reached
until next week. The suit will be heard
before a full bench in the United States
