Chicago, June 6. Another open Sunday
has passed, and again the great outpour
ing of watte workers who were expected to
jam the World's fair grounds has failed to
materialize. The day opened magnificent
ly. It v.-as a privilege to live and breath
the dcliciously cool morning air. There
were a few clouds, bu t nothing to prevent
Chicago people accustomed as they are to
damp weather from going where they de
sired. As a matter of fact they did not
stay at home. At night the street cars
on the north side were crowded with peo
ple returning from Lincoln park and the
various resorts in the suburbs. There was
a heavy shower about 2 p.m. lasting a
short time, and from then on the weather
was fair. -
Disappointment for the .Visitors.
The weather was warm, but not oppres
sively so. At the grounds all the state and
foreign buildings closed on the first open
Sunday were again closed, and will prob
ably so remain if the Sunday fair is kept
up. The matter that there was most com
ment .'on, however, was the condition oi
some of the finest exhibits, many of them
being hidden from the view of visitors be
cause the exhibitors or their agents in
charge did not propose to work seven days
in the week. The coverings which protect
the exhibits ft night were not removed and
all the vir.) rs could see were big orna
mental booths and show-cases disfigured
with canvas, wood or iron sheeting. The
exposition authorities have no right to re
move the covering without the permission
of the exhibitors and no arrangement has
yet been made for unveiling on Sunday.
They Saw Krupp's Ills Guns.
One of the special attractions was to be
seen in Krupp's big pavilion which was
formally opened to-day. Many people saw
the handling and movement of the big
guns just as in active service except that
there was no firing. The exhibition lasted
OX THE GCX DECK OF THE ILLINOIS,
half an hour in the morning and afternoon.
The great gun is only mounted for the
proving ground, but the smaller pieces on
each side are mounted in coast defense tur
rents exactly as they would be for service.
The services of only two men were needed
to do the work.
Sunday Music Was I'layed.
Music appropriate to Sunday was pro
vided in the parly part of the day by the
Chicago band stationed in the building be
tween Machinery hall and the Administra
tion building. The Sousa band played
afterward in the same part of the grounds,
but the audiences were not large at any
ti'-ue on account of the scarcity of seats and
the muddy ground.
The Sunday Closing Case,
Whether ' - fair will be open next Sun
day depends un the decision of the United
States appellate court Judges Woods,
Jenkins and Grosscup and that court will
not speak until next Thursday. It was ex
pected that the decision would be made
verbally Saturday, but when the court con
vened Judge Woods said: "The court has
concluded, gentlemen, that as there are
several points which we wish to consider
further we will not announce the decision
in this case until next Thursday at 10
o'clock." He added ihat the court was not
inclined to deal with the temporary in
junction application until the decision of
the entire case was made known.
Attendance for Two Days.
Notwithstanding the attraction of elec
tric illumination there were but 54,304 paid
admissions for the whole day. Saturday,
which was a much more unpromising day,
the paid admissions were 51,163. It is
stated that whole train-loads of people
were deterred from entering Sunday night
because of the threatening look of the sky.
OPENING THE BATTLESHIP.
The Model of the Illinois Now Ready
for Inspection Notes.
The battleship Illinois has been opened
and is now a completed exhibit at the fair.
The ceremonies were simple but interest
ing. At the appointed time W. G. Stevens,
of the United States marines, carrying a
bugle, left the encampment near the signal
service station, and passing along the pier
to the gangplank, boarded i.he battleship.
A corpora: oi the gifara stood at tne snip s
stern and at his feet lay the ensign. Above
on the bridge stood the ship's officer. The
bugler, without word or sign, marched
half way amidships; then, placing his
trumpet to his lips, sounded a call. "Hoist
colors," shouted the ship's officer. ' The
corporal of the guard palled a cord and
presently the stars and stripes were float
ing gracefully from the stern. '
Along either rail of the gun deck were
two rows of electric lights, one above the
other, extending from bow to stern. The
glare of these was destroyed by an outer
globe similar to a Chinese lantern. The
upper decks were as bright Jts.day from
similar slobes distributed about them.
Within the hold and turrets where the
sreat suns are operated and where the
service of the shin is done, darkness was
