The People Recognize llini.
The ex-presiflenfs face is too well-known
for him to go anywhere "incog," and a.s
oon as the carriage was inside the grounds
he was recognized, and cheered wherever

It was noon when she reached there,

Kb 'World' Conference of Charities anf
. Corrections Begin.
Of all the gatherings which have or
will take ' place durfng the World's fair
under, the auspices of the World's Con
gress Auxiliary, none has' a more practical
ar iiiiH)ita:it reffcon for existence than'
that which has opened in the hall of Col1-)
ambus at the Art Iustitute.. Whatever
Oiay be said of the value of the discussions
in woman suffrage, temperance and other
subjects that have claimed attention so
far, tbnt of relief of distress and correct
ing human vice must be one to bear fruit
that is equal in its blessings to humanity
to any other, and the field is as large and,
as accessible to human endeavor if not
more so as any of them.
Kev. Fred II. Wines, vice president, was

and lucid way. Other short addresses

THE PRINTERS FOREGATHER.
!pentnK of the International Typograph
Xot connected with the World's fair of
ficially, but meeting here principally be
cause this is World's fair year, is the In
ternational Typographical convention. The
convention is well attended, and was wel
comed to the city in a characteristic speech
by Mayor Harrison. He said in part that
the printers made and uniiwde men. "When
1 was abroad writing letters one day I com
posed something which I thought particu
larly good. I was in a poetic frenzy, my
eye rolling, and tried to describe the sun
as it set in all its glory. By a conspiracy
of the typo and the proof-reader it apeared
'son' in the paper, and as I had a young
son with me the pwtry was all knocked
out of the passage. I also wrote a book
which should have la-ought me undying
fame, but the printer and the proof-reader
prevented it reaching a second edition."
He referred to the fact that printers were
principally "night hawks" and said that
fact made it hard to close 'the saloons at
midnight, for when lie was mayor a dele
gation of printers urged him to let sev
eral saloons stay open all night.. "One vio
lation of law leads to another. You fel
lows are up late at night and are prone to
run around, but le moral if you can while
in Chicago. If you should get into trouble
during your- stay in the city you will want
the help of the mayor more then than you
do now. I will sign any bridewell petition
you may need. This is not liecanse I love
you so mucli, but liecause I fear you, gen
tlemen." The coiiventfnn got to work in the after
noon. Secretary-Treasury Wines' report
showed a prosperous' financial condition"

kakee county, has been struck by light
ning and burned. Xext to the famous

Criminal Kxplosion of Dynamite.
Antwerp, June 13. Great excitement
was occasioned throughout the city by an
explosion that occurred in front of the res
idence of the public prosecutor. The force
of the explosion was very great, and all the
windows in the house of the public prose
cutor and other houses in the vicinity were
smashed to atoms. It was concluded that
the outrage was the work of some criminal
who had a grudge against the public prose
cutor, and who had resorted to dynamite
as a means to gratify his desire for re

WORLD'S FAIR CONCERNS FAIL.
And Charge Their Troubles to a W. C. T
Chicago, June 13. Judge Tuthill has
appointed Charles T. Beal receiver for the
Harvey World's Fair hotel and the Harvey
Home Improvement company. The ap
pointment was made at the suit of Waltet
T. Mills, the principal stockholder in both
coinpunies. The assets of the Home Im
provement company are 141,500 and the
liabilities ftKt.OOO. The assets of the Hotel
and Entertainment company are $85,000
and tlie liabilities a0,0X.
. The cause of the failure of the two con
cerns is charged by Mills to be an article in
The Union Signal, the official organ of the
W. O- T. V., on May 2S. This article
charged Mills with irregularities in con
ducting the World's fair hotel scheme. It
was built by subscriptions to profit-sharing
certificates which were subscribed for
entirely by temperance people and those
who read The Union Signal. The result
was. Mills charges, that the article de
stroyed public confidence in the scheme)
and as lxth were in a measure dependent
on each other both have failed.
