Chicago, June 3. One of the directors,
Charles II. Schwab, of the World's Fair,
says that the exposition has cleared f 250,
000 during the month of May, and as a re
sult of a general reduction of forces to be
jiin next Monday, a better result is confi
dently anticipated for the month of June.
Mr. Schwab took a rj view of the situa-
M ACM ON NIKS FOl'NTAIN" IN" FILI. i'LAY.
tion, und claimed that the linancial suc
cess of the Wot Id's Fair isalready assured.
IIesaysth.it the running expenses of the
fair will be but ?UX),(1 a week for the
present, and this will be cut down when
the working lorcts are reduced as has been
ordered by the oflicials. Mr. Schwab says
the receipts for the month of May have av
eraged 24,000 daily.
Tresurer Not Saying Anything.
Treasurer Seeberger says the financial
statement for May is not compiled and
does not know when it will be ready, lie
gives as an excu.-e the extra work entailed
on his department and the sickness of his
cashier. When asked if the exposition
hadmaie $250,000, as claimed by Director
Schwab, the treasurer merely smiled and
said it iras necessary to keep a pretty
good balance on hand. He was afiixing
his signature to a bundle of checks at the
time and remarked that he was paying
money out as fast as it arue in. He would
not say how much the exposition corpora
tion owed on contract account.
Temporary Injuuction Deulad.
While the attendance last Sunday did
at all come up to the expectations nor jus
tify the extravagant assertions of hyster
cals and cranks as to how the "people
were being deprived of their "rights" by
the hundsed thousand, still the receipts
were a veiy respectableadd.it :io.n. to the di
rectory's bank account! Consequently the
refusal of the United States court to grant
District Attorney Milchrist a temporary
injunction requiring the directory to close
the gates tomorrow was not unpleasant
news to the Chicago managers. The judge
in refusing the injunction said no intima
tion could be given as to the time when a
decision would be reached.
A Question of Jarintltction.
The arguments cf the lawyers in the ap
plication were all completed by noon and
from that time until a late hour in the
evening the court was in consultation on
the subject of its decision. Lttter counsel
in the case were notified to be in court at
10 a. m. today. The closing arguments
were listened to by a very large audience.
Attorney Walker for the directory asked
the (court if it took jurisdiction Sin
the ca.-e to take cognizance of the order
entered by the state court, which he said
had prior jurisdiction. Walker, in reply
to a question by High, said that if the
United States court granted the injunc
tion it would result in a conflict of juris
diction. Wide Interest in the Matter.
The question is exciting the widest inter
est. The directory is considering the matter
of inviting such men as Moody to preach
at the fair ground on Sunday, and there is
great desire to know whether Moody will
accept if invited. He will not commit
himself, but says that he is receiving hour
ly calls and telegrams. One man calls
to urg him not to accept, another with
an opposite prayer; one telegram declares
that acceptance will b working for his
Satanic majesty, another that under no
circumstances should Moody miss the op
portunity for good that preaching at the
fair grounds would present. The tele
grams came from all parts of the country
and church people are represented on both

Social impurity was handled without

and things were called by their dictionary

misses of from 13 to 16 years who appa
rently drank In every word that fell from
the orators' lips upon a subject which is
not usually discussed in the presence of
the adolescent of either sex.
Archbishop Ireland made the opening
prayer and the principal address, lie said
in part "The highest evidence of civiliza
tion, and the truest evidence of Christiani
ty, is social purity of life and the freedom
of the human being from animalism. "The
religion of Christ is a complete triumph of
the spiritual over the animal man." After
dwelling on the purity of Christ's immacu
late birth and the further fact ot his own
virginity, the archbishop proceeded to ela
borate on the sanctity of marriage, with a
hard side-slap at the divorce courts.
"The superiority of Cbji ptianity overauy
other civilization," he Aid. "lies in the hon
ored and honorable position of the Chris
tian woman. Under the civilization of
Greece and Home woman was but a chat
tel the toy of passion. It was Christian
ity that lifted her to a position of equality
with her husband." He next paid his re
spects to that class of pessimists who de
clare that becntise evil always has been evil
always will le. He did not say that
through this congres" and the federated so
cieties all sin would be obliterated, but
held that evil ebbed and flowed according
as barriers were raised up or let down.
Popular literature with immoral tenden
cies, "novels with a Stygian stench," week
ly papers teeminz with salaciousness, the
atrical posters which to the young are
practical objects in lasciviousness were each
in turn denounced as means used by the
common enemy to worst social purity.
"The stage," said the archbishop, "that
agency that might be used for such noble,
elevating and instructive purposes, is too
often by unscrupulous and reckless mana
gers made to pander to the lowest and
A paper by Mrs. Ballington Booth (who
had been ill and could not read her paper

lassie. Adjutant Vickery. In the paper
Mrs. Booth recited the efforts of the Salva

vice and despair. The slum workers of
the army iad heard the heart-breaking
stories of women and girls in the dives,
and they know the extent of the evil.

fruitful causes of impurity.

The Eclectic physicians put in
the day discussing materia medic, and
one paper by Dr. Kunze, of Xew York,
discussed the use of insects as medicine,
claiming for them valuable properties.
The Homeopaths witnessed a surgical
clinic in which the subjects wers hogs and
the place the stock yards. In other words
they watched the process of making pork
out of pig at Armour's. Later the doctors
went on with their discussions on diseases
and remedies therefor.
The Trouble Over Awards.
The foreign commissioners have received
the report of the committee that met John
Boyd Thacher to discuss the awards row.
This committee received assurances from
Thacher that the jury system would be
adopted when demanded. The foreigners
then addressed a letter to Director General
Davis saying that they would consent to

the compromise if he gave assurances that
it would be carried out. The foreign dele
gates seemed to fear that Thatcher would
go back to the one Judge plan after they
had restored their exhibits to competition.
The commissioners still insist that the
Juries shall apportion the work among
themselves instead of receiving instruc
tions from Thacher.
Chairman Thatcher hits back at his
friends the protesting foreign commis
sioners to the fair by saying thjt three
eights of the foreign exhibits have not been
fully installed yet, many have not been
even unpacked, and that if the exhibits
were ready to be examined the judges
could go to work now. He says that two
weeks' notice of all intentions to examine
exhibit (or awards will be sent to the
foreign commissioners and exhibitors, so
that none can complain that they were
taken by surprise.

session. The number of children attend

congress was asked to exhibit a Christian
spirit, a request that was warmly opposed
by California delegates. Regarding mar
riage a resolution was adopted ! against
marrying divorced persons, except in cases
of the innocent party where divorce is
granted for adultery. Easy divorce laws
were condemned, and a national law ad

Drizzle of Over Two Hour! Winds Up an
Eight Months Drought.
Topeka, June 3. C.' B. Jewell, the
superintendent of rainmaking for the Chi
cago, Rock Island and Pacific Railroad
company, has liegun his rainmaking ex
periments at Meade. IIU apparatus was
set up In the laboratory car and the cloud
collecting gases were sent up into the clear
sky about sundown. After operations had
continued for six hours light clouds were
visible in all directions about the horizon.
At 10 o'clock they gathered in a large body
and at 10:30 a light drizzling rain began to
fall which continued until 1 o'clock in the
morning, when it cleared.
At daylight the conditions wete still
favorable for the successful termination of
the experiment. Mr. Jewell has kept his
apparatus constantly at work and will not
discontinue Lie operations for several days,
or until a drenching rain has fallen.
There has been no rain in southwestern
Kansas, where ithe experiment is being
conducted, for eight mouths and the favor
able Ijegiuning of Jewell's work has
proven very encouraging to the officers of
the Rock Island 'Railroad company in this
city. They are more thoroughly convinced
than ever that Jewell has mastered the
science of rain making and that protracted
dry seasons iu Kansas are at an end.

men were there and hurried him to the
jail, which is now surrounded by a guard.
The negro confesses that he was at the
Vest house Tuesday morning aud chased
the woman out of the house to scare her.
