Chicago, June 16. The Sunday openers
and Sunday closers of the World's fair
have met for a final and decisive engage
ment and the decision is locked up, so far
as the populace is concerned, in the
breasts of the three judges who will render
the same. The scene was a solemn one at
the opening of the court. The Judges
clothed in silk and the majesty of the law
slowly ascended the dais and seated them-

and Hand ran the threshing machine up
to the limit for the gate closers, while
Walker and St. Clair were equally vigor
ous for the fair oer.ers. The openers had
asked leave' to amend their plen in the
lower court by striking out the claim that
the Sunday closing law was unconstitu
tional and Hand argued that this could
not lie taken cognizance of in thiscourt.
The, judges ' froiuently questioned t he at
torneys and their questions generally left
the impri ssiou that there would be no
trouble about Jurisdiction and that the
court would ilccide that it could try the
Fair JunI Like a Custom House,
til the course of his argument Hand said
it seemed absurd that after the fair had
been dedicated by the government to na
tional purposes it hiis no right or power to
speak as to such uses. The government
has the right to close the fair just as it
has the right to close the custom house or

other public buildings or institutions
maintained for the public good. James
High began a speech for the United States,
but before he closed the court adjourned
for the day. The court-room was crowded
with the partisans of the two propositions
to open and to close and much interest
was taken in the argument, not because
there are any new points, but Itecause it
is felt that this is the final hearing.
DOWN AT THE FAIR GROUNDS. .
The Directory Should lie SlOO.OOtr
era, But Probably It Is Not.
The World's fair directory has evolved
from its ianer consciousness a determina
tion to no longer make tboawn the total of
paid admissions to the exposition each day.
Consequently it cannot be stated how much
went into the bank account as a result of
German day. The total admissions, in
cluding "dead-Leads," were 193,575, which
came pretty close to what the fair manag
ers counted on, and is 100,000 short of tbe
estimate of the managers of tbe German
festival. How many of these went in on
complimentaries is the question that most
be decided before it will lie known whether
in a financial view German day paid bet
ter than Enlalie day.
The fact that it was a special day will
account for a great numlier of free admis
sions more in proportion than on ordi
nary days. Some days the free admissions
have been one-third of the total. If this
rule holds out for German ildy there were
only 129,000 h$ ljai dropped, into the
eash boxes taking no account of the- chil
dren's admissions. Paid admissions on En
lalie day were over 134,000. It was a big
crowd, anyhow. The masses were every
where, all the buildings were crowded, the
different streets about the grounds were,
thronged all day and the electric launch
es and gondolas did a thriving business.
All the balconies and promenades on top
of the buildings held crowds constantly
during the day and evening, and when the
crowds went home at night after witness
ing the fireworks the gates closed on the
largest crowd that had visited the fair in
At the stand where the German exer
cises were performed the crowd was so
dense only a few could hear the speeches.
The imperial - German commissioner,
Privy Councillor Wermuth, in court dress,
bubbled over with American and Gemm
patriotism. The address of Harry Kuliens,
conveying a greeting to the representa
tives of the German empire from their fel
low count lymen in Chicago, was patriotic.
"Wacht am Khein" was sung with fervor
by the 1,000 voices and orchestral accom
paniment. The response came from Haron
von Ilollenben, ambassador to the United
States, a studious man wearing spectacles
and the order of the Iron Cross. The
baron concluded his speech by calling for
three cheers fur the president of the
United States and they were given with a
will ft om ln,tK) throats. Han-y lteubens
cashed : he assembly u rise and join in an
enthusiastic "hoc!:"' to old Germany, which
( 'a!-! Vuiir.t said: "We are loyal citizens
of the ureal American republic most
loyal. We are proud of our cit izenship,
prom! of the commonwealth, its self-government,
which is our ;Tverninent. its
prosperity w hich is our prosperity, and its
lain , h. iat: our fate. Whenever
our new fr.t hcrlanJ calls its sons to arms
i:--ai'i t enemies, in the interior ore.t'rior,
the ( lerman-i.ovn citizen was among the
fi'-.-t to hurry to the i'.ag to sacrifice las
blood and Iiti on the battlelk-d for the
common cause, and among the heroes and
martyrs of the republic German names
were n'i r missing. It! all worksieails of
ih:u,,':.t and in all blenches of work,
tien.'.an spirit and German hands have
worked hvro fruitfully and we may
v.v'.' say that the soil of America is
K'. titrated with German I.I.mkI anil German
'The German citizen's sense of duty
towui-.l h iiw f qlhuil a ni Ijy a.s never iiri--tat.e.il
by t he thought to mislead rhik'rv
mhik from the sure and and safe road o I
its tra.'.iiional politics. He nevt r tried to
make Kuropean polities American politics.
One de-ire lie has always had, and will
always have and it is a German, but not
a less Aiiiorice.n patriotic desire; it is the
wish e?.i linr . from old time let ween the
United States and Germany never to be
disturbed by a cloud, quarrel, or even a
misunderstanding, and that trir old and
.our new fatherland may always ln'.a, beau
tiful example to the nations of the world
of a hearty and everlasting friendship of
peoples.'' In conclusion lie paid a hearty
tribute to the German emperor and hfs
r presriitative, Herr Wermuth.

The day ended with a magnificent dis
play of fireworks on the lagoon to the east
