Chicago, June 7. A night of rest fol
lowed the enthusiastic reception of tho
Princess Eulalie by the citizens of Chi
cago; and few persons were admitted to
see the lady. The me.i bers of the Spanish
AVorld's far commission, the Spanish con
sulate, and a few of the high exposition
officials called during t'.io evening. The
duke and duchess of Veragua did not ac
company the Infanta to the Palmer House,
NORWEGIAN' EISHIXQ BOAT.
nd it was observed that the meeting of
the Infanta and the duke's party was vers
formal. The general impression was that
in the circle of Spanish royalty the duke,
although the descendant of the great dis
coverer, does not cut much of a figure. This
morning the princess went to the residence
of Mayor Harrison, where the first enter
tainment in her honor was given.
Itreakfant Party at the Mayor's.
The 'function" was a "breakfast" parts
and reception. The "breakfast'' took plact
at noon. Tht3 Infanta was escorted to the
mayor's residence by mounted troops ami
was received at the door by the mayoi
himself. There were just eighteen in tlii
party. Of these eight were of the Infanta';

Mayor Harrison's residence, . hiie quite
prett-ntiot-.s, is not one adapted to lame
functions, and so to his regret the reception
that followed the brvakfa-t had to lie lim
ited in attendance. About 1 00 of the lead
ers of official society were invited, and it
goes without baying that they were all
present. All were on haul when the In
fanta left the dining room, and none left
until she had taken her departure. This
wasin deference toSpanish. royal etiquette.
When the royal lady departed the mayor
escorted her to the carriage, and then held
a reception of his own. Tonight the In
fanta will be the guest of President lligin

ABOUT EXPOSITION AFFAIRS.
Centralization of Authority Derided I'pou
V. Sunday Closing Flsres."
It has-been decided by the directory that
the management of the fair shall be central -faed.
Afr the suggestion of Director Gen
eral Davis and Director of Works Hurn
ha n a resolution will be adopted placing
the-entire management in the hands of the
council of administration nnd those two
gentlemen, the latter to take orders only
from the council. This will avoid conflict
of jurisdiction. The council of administra-

tion represents Doth the United States gov
ernment and the physical forces of the
fair. Tfcere is an economical side to this
move. By bringing Buruham over into
the administrative department it is safe to
predict the early abol'sbmeut of the de
partment of construction, which will re
Dult in a great curtailment of expenses. It
la costing the fair about JsO.OOO daily to
keep open. However, the cost of opera
tion will be reduced to about t CO.OOO daily
before July I.
Tomorrow the decision of the United
States court will be given on the subject of
Sunday closing. And apropos of this sub
ject a morning paper which has been a
Sunday closer all along the only Sunday
closing paper in the city presents the most
remarkable array of "figu-es" ever given
outside of a political document. Indeed it
would be a startling political statistician
who would present such unique figure.
They stamp the Sabbatarian bureau which
Has nan cnarge ot mis Btnrject; as tne cnam.
pions in getting up "figurative" arguments.
Hut they also indicate a recklessness that
looks only to size and doesn't fool with
accuracy. The figures referred to purport
to give the number of signers of petitions
for Sunday closing.
Three specimens are enough. In the
table presented Pennsylvania is credited
with having 15,552,473 signers to Sunday
closing petitions; Ohio with 4,1M;396;
Michigan with 4,090,240. This is startling
to a degree, when it is known that Penn
sylvania, according to the year book for
IS93 published by the prtper that printed
tb "figures," had only 5,858,014 popula
tion in 1S90; Ohio, 3,672,310, and Michigan
8,093.889. It would seem, that these imagi
native collectors ol statistics have drawn
on generations yet unborn. But that is
not all. The paper goes on t say that 161
petitions did not specify how many had
signed, and assumes that if they had the
tots number 2f,500,ia5 in all the states
would have been double that figure.
There's no doubt of it. The men capable
of crediting 15,000,000 petitioners to Penn
sylvania three times aa many as live in
the state, men, women, and children
would no doubt have easily made over 50,
900,000 ont of the matter. Indeed it would
have been surprising if they had not made
the vote unanimous, with some back coun
ties to hear from. And to oppose this they
can only find 87,000 odd who wanted the
fair open on Sunday. It is no stretch of
imagination to say that there are 87,000
people in Chicago alone who favor an open
Sunday, and they aren't "bums," either.
Such "figures" injure rather than help the
The grounds and buildings were illumi
nated at night and nearly all exhibits
were displayed until 10 o'clock. The at
tendance was large, the great bulk of the
people swarming into Administration
plaza to hear the music The three bands
Sousa's, Chicago and the Cincinnati
furnished the music from the different
stands during the evening.
The ca lets from the Michigan Military
academy at Orchard Lake gave a dress
parade and review in front of the adminis
tration building in the evening. The ca
dets have their own band and appeared in
full dress. The boys went through their
ivolutions with great precision and were
fondly cheered by the spectators. Tho
compauy is settled in camp up at the west
end of the Plaisance and gives exhibition
drills there on alternate days.
Un le Sam is gradually increasing his
armed forces at tha fair. One company
has been on guard duty at the convent of

LEGISLATION FOR ILLINOIS.
Tho Senate I'lies the Corrected Appor
. Springfield, June 7. There was busi
ness done for a change in both houses the
first session after the usual weekly three
days rest, the house doing some routine
business and the senate buckling to the
senatorial apportionment bill with a
quorum present and it was ordered en
grossed for third reading. The sesMon
was very stormy, the Republicans pro
testing against the rulings of the presi
dent, all protests being ignored. Action
on the bill had been taken Friday when
there was no quorum present in spite of
Republican protests, and it was on this
ground that the protests were revived,
with the purpose, of course, of delaying
the bill. The protest was rejected as
being disrespectful in language.
The apportionment bill was ordered to
third readingand a bill to confer power on
the Chicago sanitary district was passed.
Au attempt to suspeud the fulCS And scud

bill was advanced to third readiLg, and the
biil to give members a salary of f 1,000 per
term was sent to second reading. An at
tempt to have the lynching at Decatur
coudemned was defeated by objectiou. The
news came that the senate had passed the
corrected apportionment bill, and the Re
publicans forced an adjournment by fili
