The Fair Not a lioblwr's Koot.
National Commissioner Mercer, of Wy
oming, said that the first work to be done
by the association was to join with the of
ficials of the fair in giving thereto the
rejKirts circulatetVin the west as well as
east that this was a robbers' roost and a
den of thieves, that the people would come
to see the exhibits. Commissi ..it Mc
Dowell declared with much fori :liat the

with their wives and children
cases, filled the hall in the Admi
building kno-n as the Commission hall.
They came together by commdn consent in
response to au invitation to mike it mil
lers' day at the fair. The gathering was
presided over by the Hon. I '.. . Stanard,
of St. louis. It was an um : rial con veu-
tion of millers representing no national
body. The caliope steam whistle inven
tion in the towers of Machinery hall
screeched forth, its hideous notes during
the delivery of the addresses and when
that fire, riot and murder alarm was not
in operation the speakers were disturbed
by the infantile cry from the offspring of
We're Going to Take Canada.
The meeting discussed in s general way
the rise and progress of milling in this
country and other subjects of interest to
the industry. Governor Stanard said that
the production of wheat would increase in
a greater ratio than the population in this
country. There was more wheat land
northwest from Chicago than there was
southeast or south. Some one might say
he was tajting in British Columbia, Mani
toba and the northwest territories of Can
ada. To that he would say all that
country would be part of the United States
in ten years. This annexation sentiment
was received with applause. Ex Secretary
Noble made a felicitous address.
THE MUCH ABUSED GUARD.
Some Facts About that Row With the
Seventeen of the foreign commissioners,
including the German, Austrian, Italian,
Russian, but not including England or
France have protested, against the arret
of the Paraguayan commissioner by a
Columbian guard, and to read some of the
city papers it would seem that the guards
. ere a ei ui noors wunout courtesy or in
telligence. This is a libel on American
education. The particular guard who ar
rested the Paraguayan is H. V. Davis, of
Versailles. I i Is. He is a graduate of a
school at Valparaiso, Ind., and has taught
school at the former place for seven years.
Unless lie knows how to behave himself iu
would seem that his education was a pjor
The guanl did nothing but obey his or
ders, and the commissioner knew the rules,
for upon being stopped from leaving the
building with the property he went to ob
tain a permit, but could not find the prop
er officer. Ret urning he declared he would
go anyhow, and thereby got himself ar
rested. If anybody was at fault it was the
official who made the rule, not the guard
who ofieyed orders. This is what Commis
sioner St. Clair, of the council of adminis
tration, says, adding, however, that the
guanl might have been so thickheaded
that he could not properly construe his or
ders, which is not probable from the facts
in the foregoing paragraph.
Moreover, the commissioner from Para
guay himself does not hold the guard re
sponsible, but his superior officer. Some
of the papers here gloated with great glee
over the alleged fact that the commission
er knocked the guard down, a fact that
exists in somebody's imagination. The
commissioner knew well what was neces
sary, for later he did secure the required
permit. Some reparation, however, will
probably be given him by the council of
administration as balm for his wounded
feelings. The writer has yet to see any
one who does not speak in praise of the
painstaking courtesy of the much abused
In the California room in the Woman's
building is a huge mirror covering half of
one large wall. The designers of the room
put it there to reflect the polished finish of
the paneling and the paintings framed in
the woodwork. But womr.n. lovely wo
man, thinks differently "What a perfect
ly elegant place to see if my dress hangs
straight!" each one murmurs to herself
and slows up in her mad march in order to
promenade before it.
Brazil's building is built afterthe French
renaissance style of architecture. It is cov
ered with delicate detail work. The large
dome is surrounded by four smaller ones,
and the walls of the building are almost
covered with sculptured work in stall'. On
the outer walls of the building are twenty
medallions, each of which bears the name
of one of the twenty states which comprise
the I'.i.i.'lian republic.
The .:nuy chaplains are the latest addi
tion to the meeting now going on in the
Art Institute. The congress of Building
and l.o:m associations continues to discuss
subjects of interest in that line, and its
proceedings when published will le good
reading for those who have money in such
institutions. The intercollegiate Prohi-.

The committee of the board of lady
managers upon the selection of a "na
tional flower," of which Mrs. Mary Cecil
CantraU, of Kentucky, is the chairman,
has decided to open a looth near the west
ern entrance of the Woman's building on
the morning of the 4th of July for the pur
pose of receiving a popular vote upon the
selection of a national flower.
It has lieeu determined to erect a model
or fac simile of the treasury building. It!

under the dome of the federal building,
and a model of the Washington monument
under the clock tower of the great Manu
factures building. The model of the treas
ury building will take alnmt 100,(0 coins.
The directory has a barrel or so of the
coins on hand.
Nothing in the woman's building is more
exquisite than a tiny carving in ivory in
the French section of I'hryne. It is of the
sixteenth century, and the ivory has ac
quired the yellow tint of age, but no age
cau ever destroy the exquisite pose of the
perfect form uor the beauty of the face,
half hidden by the rounded arm. It is
Phryne as she stood before her judges, who
themselves fell victims to her charms.

Ci.evki.aM), June 30. The first interna
tional convention of the Epworth league
has begun. It was not a business session,
but one of reception. The delegates be
gan fo assemble at Music hall at 1 o'clock
in the afternoon ami soon the large struc
ture was completely filled. There were
Epworth leaguers from all over the United
States and Cf inula. They were called to
order by Mr. W. M. Day, of this city. After
anTnvocntion it was announced that Gov
ernor McKinley was present, having
reached the hall with the committee of re
ception and that he would address the
members of the league.
Upon his arrival in the hall he was
loudly cheered and frequently was inter
rupted by applause. At the conclusion
of his address Mayor Blee delivered the
address of welcome in behalf of the city
ami extended to the delegates the hospi
tality of Cleveland. The addresses of the
mayor and governor were responded to by
Bishop A. W. Wilson, of the Methodist
church south; Rev. Witbrow, Canadian
secretary of the league, and Bishop James
X. FitzgerahL There was little or no bus
iness transacted after the addresses. ' In
the evening the delegates held a praise

Interpretation of the Nurse's Act.
Washington, June .30. The question
arose whether those women who superin
tended the diet of sick and wounded sol
diers were entitled to pension under the
provisions of the act of 1892, commonly
known as the nurse's act. The assistant
secretary of the interior, John M. Rey
nolds, hold that these persons are entitled
when they furnish proof that they were
employed directly by the surgeon general
of the army or that the person who em
ployed them had proper authority, and
that this anthority was recognised by the
Texas Train Robber Confesses.
HoUeTON, June 30. J. D. May, the train
robber who attempted to hold up the San
Antouio and Aransas Pass train at Breck

fireman, is in jail at Kluresville, where he
is lieing guarded to p -event his lieiug

FRAUD ALLEGED IN A FAILURE.
V ii secure tl Creditor 'of a Lumber Dealer
Chicago, June 30. The affairs of Samuel
B. Barker, the big lumber dealer who
failed recently, have been brought Into
court in a rather sensational manner. A
bill was filed by unsecured creditors to set
aside the deed of trust made by Barker in
favor of the Union National bank and
other prefer-"! creditors. Barker's real
indebtedness to the Union National bank
was said in court to be between $500,000
and 100,000, and the statement passed
unchallenged by the bank's attorneys.
It is alleged that the bank directors
knew of Bark ;r's insolvency when he as a
director borrowed large sums from the
bank, and thrt they conspired to defraud
unsecraed creditors when the failure could
not be longrr averted. One of the at
torneys for the creditors said "Barker's
liabilities will probably reach a round
million, but it is imposible to say how
much until all the creditors are heard
from. The tangible assets consist of his
homestead and two lumber yards which
will amount to, jierhaps, 200,000."
In tile llritish Parliament.
Iyjxnox, June 30. Parliament did not
adjourn at its first sitting in which the
"gag law" was debated until 4 o'clock thio
morning, at which time Balfour agreed to
conclude offering amendments at 7 o'cloc .
this evening. The debate was carried 'on
almost entirely by anti-home rulers, the
government taking very little part.
