A Poliry of Iletrenchment.
There will le a severe policy of re
trenchment in all departments of the fair
beginning this month. The distribution
of passes is to be kept within the narrow
est limits possible, a-id even Major H:;ndy,
who deals with the press representatives

with a view to a heavy reduction of the
list. The matter of awards which has
been giving rntuli trouble because the for

is in a fair way of settlement. A compro

be accepted. The Ilritish exhibitors, how

Dedication of Kentucky's Itnildinc
It was a gala day in the park for Ken
tuckins to-day. The day is the 101st an
niversary of the admission of the state into
the union, and was chosen as the o e for
the dedication of the state building- I-ike
many other structures in the nark it is not
completed, but was in sufficient shape
to permit of the exercises The exercises
began at 2 p. m. and were begun with mu
Bic. followed by prayer by He v. Or. Craig.
The building was then tendered to the
state by V. H. Dulaney. president of the
state commissioners, and Governor John
Young Brown responded Music followed
and next an address by V. O. Rradley.
The Daniel Iloone statue in front of the
building was then unveiled, and the exer
cises closed by an address by Colonel II. T.
Durrett. Later there will e a reception
by the Kentucky woman's executive com
mittee, consisting of Mrs Sue Phillip
Brown. Miss Ida Symmons. Miss Lucy Lee
Hill and Miss Mamie Kirkmni in Ken
tucky's room in the Worn in's tiiwlding.
The Children's Iloine.
One of the most useful huilditig of the
exposition is the home for children. This
is fitted up with playrooms and with every
description of toys, both of domestic and
foreign make those from Japan being es
pecially curious and ingenious with
which the children may amuse themselves
tinder the care of Mrs. Imnlap and a full
corps of attendants. Parents can take
their young children to this building and
'check" them so that there will be no
danger of getting them "mixed," lea-e
them there and go out and look at the
fair with perfect assurrance that the little
ones will be well taken care of. In one
part of the building is a "creche" where
babies, similarly "checked" enn be left.
It is arranged with every convenience for
the little things. It was opeued this after
noon. THE OPEN SUNDAY QUESTION.
A Hearing Ilegun Itefore I'nited Stntei
Judge Fuller Not Present.
Chicago, June 1. The opening gun of
the United States war against the Sunday
fair has been fired in the Federal court be
fore Judges Woods, Jenkins andGrosscup,
forming the court of appeals. Chief Jus
tice Fuller, who was expected to sit, was
prevented by sickness in his family. The
attorneys for the government were District
Attorney Milchrist, and Messrs. Hand.
Aiuncu, -nigu anu rates, uu tue opposite
side were Attorneys Walker and St. Clair.
Attorney W. K Mason was also in court,
representing C. W. Clingman, who ob
tained the temporary anti-closing injunc
tion last week. The bill filed by Wana
xnaker and Brown was presented but not
The important feature of the proceeding
'was the leave given Attorney Milchrist
to file an amendment showing that the
World's fair directory had accepted two
installments of the $2,500,000 alter the act
was passed that took nearly tOOO.000 of
the money buck to the government, and
that these acceptances were with the full
knowledge of the passage of that act. At
torney Walker antagonized this filing, but
was overruled and given leave to file an
amendment to the answer of the directory.
As one ground udod which Judge Stein
granted tne temporary Injunction was
that there was no proof that the directory
had accepted money after the passage of
the act withdrawing nearly $000,000 from
the original appropriation, the alleged
acceptance, if proved, may have an im
portant bearing on the case.
Milchrist also asked leave to introduce
the books of record of the fair, but Attor
ney Walker objected. The court, however,
said all evidence would be accepted on the

understanding that it could be ruled out
later. A spirited colloquy ensued over the
proposition of District Attorney Milchrist
to file a stenographer's report of a speech
made by the president of the exposition on
behalf of the directory, in which he turned
over the entire exposition to the president
of the United Stated, and it was stated by
Attorney Walker that the local directory
had spent the money to build the fair and
collected the gate receipts, and that the
government now wants to 6tep in and take
it out of their hands.
SESSSION OF THE DOCTORS.
A Statue to Hahnemann Discussed Re
ception to the Congress.
Chicago, June 1. The Eclectics and
Ilomeopaths were at work all day discuss
ing medical subjects.but put in part of the
day so far as the Homeopaths were con
cerned discussing the raising of a fund for
a statue to their founder Hahnemann.
The proposed monument is to be a heroic
statue in bronze npon a granite pedestal,
and is to cost from $50,000 to $75,000. It is
to be placed in one of the public squares
at the nation's capital. A report was made
that subscriptions of several thousand
dollars had already been received and were
in the hands of a committee consisting of
Drs. Custis, of Washington; C C. How
srd, of New York, and 14. L. Thurston, of
Boston. It was urged that state and
local societies appoint energetic commit
tees to canvass the members for subscrip
tions. The history of Homeopathy was the sub
ject of nn address by Dr. A. II. Van -Vil-lers,
of Dresden, Germany. Gynaecology
was another subject that had an inning,
and surgery was also further discussed.
Ophthalmology and otology engaged the
attention of another section of the congress.
The Eclectic women were well represented
at their meeting, where eclectic medicine
and surgery were considered. A large
number of women practitioners took part
in the debates. In the evening in hall I
of the Art Institute building the city phy
sicians of the Eclectic school gave a recep
tion to the world's congresses of physi
cians now in the city. This morning all
the sections wew at work on subjects of
interest to the profession.

Comptroller Eckels "Talks Up"
to a Banker.

SOME riCICEDLY SALTY BEMABKS.
He Proposes to See That One Financier
Hunts a New Means of Livelihood A
Man Who Went to Washington For Fait
Treatment Finds Himself in a' Hole
"Boomers" Are Under m Cloud.
Washington, June l. Comptroller Eck
els has had a call from E. Ashley Mears,
and it is just possible that the latter gen
tleman wishes he had not called. He was
the promoter of an unfortunate string of
banks in North Dakota operated on the
name lines laid down by Zimri Dwiggins.
The comptroller closed these institutions a
few days ago, and Mr. Mears, who had
come over from New York, called on him
and expressed the opinion that he had not
been treated fairly. "There are other banks
running along employing the same meth
ods that I did. and I think it is unjust that
I should be closed while others are permit
ted to continue business," said Mr. Mears.
Will Aid Him Out of the Ituslness.
"It is true, perhaps, that there are other
banks in this country which are run
ning on the principle which you have em
ployed, but we are weeding them out as
fast as possible. It will be the policy of this
office to get rid of all bank promoters,
boomers and other men like yourself. We
are always ready at this office to encour
age legitimate banking, but so far as you
are concerned no organization that per
mits the use of your name iu any wayjwill
ever get the sanction of this office to be
Mr. Mears looked floored for a few min
utes and then recovered himself and smil
ingly replied: "I wast to get out of the
banking business, anyhow."
"I will aid you; good day!" was the part
ing remark of Comptroller Eckels.
The Chicago Columbia ISank.
A. C. Lynch, an expert who has been
looking over the books of the Columbia
bank at Chicago, and Judge Gillnrt, attor
ney, are here; also a committee represent
ing the Chemical bank of that city. The
Chemical committee will make a strong
effort to show why they ought to resume
business, while Expert Lynch and Judge.
Gilbert are expecting to produce a sum
mary of the report of the investigation of
the affairs of the Columbia so as to enable
the comptroller to get at the facts immedi
ately in order to take some action.
The Cane of Zitnri Iwiglns.
"I have not read the exhaustive report of

anxiety somewhat in regard to Mr. Dwig
HOW IT LOOKS FOR IRON WORKERS.
The-' Amalgamated aud the ltig Operators
Very Wide Apart.
PlTTS-r.riMS, June1 1. A second Home
stead, perhaps without its record of blood
shed, seems to be an inevitable result of
the forces which are working in the iron
industry of I'ittsburg, the Mahoning and
Shenango valleys. Next TuesiL.y the
Amalgamated Association of Iron and Steel
workers begin their annual wage confer
ence in this city. Whatever conclusion
may lie reached in that convention the
big iron men have determined that wages
shall come down. D. B. Oliver, of Oliver
Bros, nnd Co., employing 4,000 men and
boys, and B. F. Jones, employer of several
thousand men, have agreed to this ulti
matum. Each firm will make its own fight.
Last year's fight drove the 15,000 em
ployes of the six Carnegie companies out
of the Amalgamated association. The
Schoenberger mill also became non-union
last year. So did the Elba Iron works,
Parks Bros. & Co.'s steel works, and
Moorehead Bros. & Co.'s iron works had
already been lost to the union. Counting
only plants engaged in manufacturing iron
and soft steel there are now fifteen union
and nineteen non-union mills in this (Alle
gheny) county, the headquarters of the iron
and steel trade of America. The Linden
Steel company has built a seven-foot, tight
board fence around its works.
Some firms are known to have positively
determined upon non-union labor unless
the Amalgamated association consents to
a reduction. Puddling in central Penn
sylvania is as low as 5.53 a ton, although
$5.50 is paid here, and eastern Pennsyl
vania iron is being shipped to Pittsburg
factories. Many manufacturers who were
invited to a meeting last week to discuss
a request to attend the Amalgamated
meeting refused to attend owing, it is said,
to a growing belief that it would be better
to make their mills non-union. At the
amalgamated meeting the retention of the
puddlcrs scale and a restoration of 10 per
cent, taken from finishers last, year will be
