from Venezuela to tbe United iir.
H. Bive VbMiviavooiMul general. and Dr.
Manuel P. Toledo, commissioner from the
republic of Venezuela spoke at the open
ing of the Venezuela pavilion. Consul
General Saldivia complimented the exe
cutive commissioners on the result of their
work. He referred to the civil v r through
which the Venezuelan repub.ic bad re
cently passed, temporarily pro ' rating the
commercial activity of tie country. Vene
zuela, phoenix-like, had arisen from its
ashes. The consul general referred to
Washington and Bolivar as the fathers
of their countries, tine greatest general

Venezuela celebrated the eighty-second
anniversary of her independence and in her
name he extended a welcome to the nations
of the world.
Description n the Htrm-ture.
The outer walls of the structure are
covered with ivies and vines, which form
a contrast to the delicti te tints with which
the whole is painted. Beautifully located
the interior is even more charming. The
high walls are hung with oils which one
would hardly think cou'-d come out of
Venezuela. The statues of Columbus and
ENTUANCE TO TURKISH THEATRE.
Bolivar outside the building designed by
A. M. Turini are made of bronze and are
considered among the finest pieces of
statuary on the " grounds. The exhibit
rooms contain splendid displays of copper
ores, gold quartz, coffee, cocoa beans, co
coanuts and other products of the sort.
All go to show the wonderful undeveloped
resources of the South American republic
and it is a most excellent display when
the size of the country is taken into con
sideration. FRIGHTFUL SCENE AT THE CIRCUS.
One of Hageulmck's Lions Tries to
j Professor Darling.
, There was a scene at Hagenback's circus
that nearly precipitated a panic. Pro
fessor Darling gives daily exhibitions of his
remarkable control of five big lions, and
in driving three of them to a chariot one
of the trace chains snapped. The big
Pasha was in a bad humor and he sprang
at his trainer. In tbe cage, which incloses
the whole arena, was also the professor's
big blood hound, and he spcang at the lion,
thus savin it his master. Three of the lions
' then got into a fight, while Pasha, having
snanen on ine aog, sprang at uarnng
This time he fastened on the professor's
hip, and tore a piece out of his trousers,
also breaking the skin and drawing blood,
making the situation much more perilous.
Darling tore himself away and faced the
lion. The cane with -which he punishes
the brutes was on the other side
of the cage, and the enraged
lion was between tt and the professor.
Again the lion sprang, but the professor
dodged him and gained his cane. All this
time there was intense excitement in the
audience, and Mrs. Darling, just outside
the cage, was imploring her husband to
But it '- ss a fight for supremacy. If
Darling failed in reducing the brutes to
submission he could nevap face them
again. With stick in hand fie ordered the
lions out of the cage. All obeyed exept
Pasha. The professor strode up to him
and as he was alxiut to spring struck him
sharp blow and followed it up with a se
vere whipping. The lion was cowed. And
after he had been put throUKh his paces,
ending with the professor standing on his
neck, the scene ended, and the audience
cheered to the echo.
SIX NATION INDIANS ARRIVE
And the Crramlson of an Aborigine Who
Treated with Washington. t
The Quackuhl Indians from the island
of Vancouver, British Columbia, and the
IH-'nobscot Indians from Maine, camped in
their tepees on the lawn surrounding the
south pond, have been supplemented by
the arrival of the first purty of Six Nation
Iudlans from their reservation in the state
of Xew York. The first to arrive was Sol
omon O'Bail, a grandson of Corn Planter,
who treated with General Washington
aud received a medal from tbe first presi
dent. Solomon, who is R5 years old,
looked around the bark council house, ex
pressed his approval in good English and
said it reminded him of old times, but
suggested that the roof needed patching to
keep out the rain.
In tbe party was also Deer Foot, a
famous long distance runner in his day.
Twenty years ago he ran ll1,' miles and
9l yards in 1 hour, and 10 miles in 52
minutes 22 seconds. Thof are records
which hfive never lieen broken. A grand
son of Chief Red Jacket from the Cattar
augus rKservntiop will lie here in a few
nays, l bier Jura, of the Tuscarorns, a
delegate to the grand council; Chief Silver
Heels, of the Senacas; four squaws, one
maiden and one young brave made up the
rest oT the rarty, all dressed like gxxl
Americans. nen taey are settled in
their camp the women will be dressed in
buckskins ornamented with porcupine
quills and bead work and make baskets
and bead ornaments. Their teepes and
stockaded round bouse are constructed of
bark and elm poles. Just as the Six Nation
tribes lived when Cornmbus landed on
The national commission resumed busi
ness, holding a protracted secret session.
As a western member expressed it, "There
was a good . brg fanfly row, and it is no
body's business but our1 own." Director
General Davis was summoned to appear
before tbe commission and explarn tbe
modus operandi of conducting his end of
the exposition. Secret session with tbe
commission . is a good deal like secret ses
sion with the United States senate. The
lAUsiaebsioae leak out. Tbe commission'
ers adopted a resolution declaring that the
rate of 75 cents an hour for a wheel chair
and guide was exorbitant; that 60 cents
should be tbe maximum rate with atten
dant, and pro rata, without an attendant.
Tbe whole matter was referred to the
judiciary committee. Then after a warm
debate the Sunday question was postponed
to next. Tuesday.
1 tie council oi Administration was in
session most of the day trying to fix
minimum of daily expenditure for tbe ex
position. Leaving out the bureau of music
the council figured that the exposition
could not be run short of alr),UH) a day and
tbe Columbian guards must be kept down
to 1,5. This was tbe decision of the
council. It is impossible to reduce the
daily operating expenses of tbe fair to $13,
000, in spite of the hard wrk in that di
rection by the counciL

Powers in the Agricultural buildtng on

tice Porter s court. The prisoner refused
to make any statement and acted so queer
ly that the justice allowed the charge of
malicious mischief to be changed to that
of disorderly conduct. He then fined the
reverend vandal U5. Mr. James declared
he would go to jau and pose as a martyr
of the demon drink. Then the justice re
mitted the line.

OPINIONS ON THE GEARY LAW.
Justice flry Sustains It and Justice Fuller
Wasjiikgtox, July 6. Tbe opinion of
Justice Gray giving tbe decision of the
majority of the supreme court sustaining
the Geary anti-Chinese law and those of
Chief Justice Fuller and Justice Brewer,
dissenting, have been filed. Justice Gray
held that it is in the power of the con
gess to do as it pleases with the matter of
admission or deportation of aliens and that
it can make any conditions it chooses, re
gardless of treaties, and that these are
not reviewable by the court.
Justice Fuller Bays that the claim that an
alien can be made subject to tbe powers as
serted against his t reaty rights is to saywhat
is not recognized by fundamental law; that
the law directs the performance of a ju
dicial function inflicting particular pun-
hment, without a judicial trial; that it
is in effect a legislative sentence of banish
ment, aud assuch absolutely void.
