The official reception boat Ivanhoe met

the Viking and his crew were taken on

guests welcomed them, I. K. Boyeson, .f
this city, being the spokesman. lie said:
"Our ancestors came to this country and

Captain Andersen said it afforded him
much pleasure to know that the gentle
men who lmd invited him on hoard was
tho royal commissioner for Norway to the
fair. lie wanted only fc2.Ni K t. bnikl the
Viking, but he could not get the govern

said the captain.

After takiiig lunch the Viking men re

A brief stop was made nt Van IJuren
street, where there was a great crowd and
then the Viking was escorted to.Tackson
park where nearly all the visitors had
gathered on the piers. A brief welcome
was given by I'rofessor I'utnam and then
the World's fair official reception took
place in the Administration building, the
rotunda of which was packed.

President 1 'aimer explained that it had
not seemed j fitting to the officials of the
fair that there should lie great rejoicing
so soon afte the appalling calamity which
had cast a gloom over all. The reception
of the Vikiik should not conflict with that
given the Spanish caravels. The Norse
men had discovered Americn 500 years be
fore Columbus did, but humanity was not
yet ready for its settlement. Spain had
the glory of opening this country to man
kind and Norway had the glory of giving
jurisprudence to America. Captain And

by him and his crew and then they were

WILL PROBABLY CLOSE SUNDAY.
The Meagre Attendance Discourage the
Little doubt is now expressed among tho
exposition directors that Sunday closing
of the World's fair will shortly become an
assured fact. There was a discussion on
the question when the executive commit
tee met, but the question was too sweep
ing for them to handle and the matter
was referred to the general meeting of the
directors, which takes place at the World's
rair grounds tomorrow, i ne comparative
ly small attendance on the last four Sun
days has perplexed the directors, and it is
now highly probable that the World's
fair will not be opened after next Sunday.
There came near Iteing another World's
fair horror when the Viking boat arrived
at the Van Buren street pier. The big
steamer Arthur Orr ran into the stern of
the small steamer Imperial with about
fifty people on board, and drove it Into the
'andinflrwith terrific force. The pier was
crowded, and a number of people were
bruised, but most of them were able to
limp away and have their hurts attended
to. But John Kramer, of this city, was
caught and his leg badly crushed and
mangled. He will recover. One or two
were thrown into the water, but rescued.
There was a terrible panic for a moment.
The special council committee on fire
protection at the World's faiJias com
menced its work. The report which will
be submitted at the next council meeting
will suggest many changes for the better
protection of visitors at the fair from fire.
Accompanied by Marshal Murphy the
committee visited the roof of Manufactures
building and inspected the elevators.
Building Inspector Toolen recommended
that, a spacious staircase of light iron be
placed on the platform connecting with
the spiral stairways.
At the session of the board of lady man
agers the following judges were named for
the department of agriculture: Br. Mary
Green, Michigan, food products; Mrs.
Bevier, Pennsylvania, unassigned; Laurel
D. Worley, In.liana, dairy; Iaura de Force
Cordon, California, silk. In the depart
ment of horticulture Mrs. Nichols, of
Texas, was named for judge on cacti, and
Addie Elliott, of California, on chrysan
themums. President Palmer has written to George
W. Childs auent the proposed help for the
duke of Veragua. He denies the report
that the duke has wasted a large fortune
in gambling, and says the estate was
never large, but what there was ( f it has
been lost in legitimate investments that
proved unfortunate. Veragua refused
help for himself, but woul 1 be grateful
for help for his family. It is therefore
proposed to ask the people of the Anieri
,Ciin republics to subscritie to a fund.
Among the visitors to .the fair were the
Nawab of Kampur. accompanied by Abdul
Majid Kahn, Sirdar l-'atchyab and Muhi
Kararki. Captain Colvin, J. K. House
and Mr. Budden and five servants are also
in the party. The prince has been travel
ing through the west seeing the sights in
Alaska and do Yello-vrstone park, and h-3
expects to surprise the jieople on his re
turn with his accounts of the fair. He
will stay here several weeks.
THE COLD STORAGE CALAMITY.

Washington, July 13. Professor Rich

States fish commission, and Dr. William
Wakeman. in charge of the Canadian fish

now at work conducting some interesting
investigations intended to provide the
necessary data and scientific information
upon which both governments can base
legislation for the protection of the fishing
industries and the preservation of the food
fishes that abound in those waters. At
present the commission is giving its atten

finding of Ten llodicg a l'ignient of the
Imagination "Heroes' Day."
The search for bodies in the ruins of the
cold storage warehouse was cont inued, but
only one additional corpse was found, and
that was that of H. A. Drummond, whose
two brothers worked all day to find it. The
body was in a sickening condition. One
other victim has died Lewis J. Frank, a
fireman. This brings the total known
deadto fourteen. The Herald's assertion
that ten bodies had been found in a heap
at th ftiot of t he elevator was a mistake,
the find really-lieing a pile of beef that had
been in the refrigerators.
For some reason the force put on the
search has been very inadequate, but to
day there is a large one at work and it is
hoped that by night it will lie known
whether there are any more bodies in the
debris. There are four persons reported
missing at this time Joseph Campbell,
carpenter; Archie McArthur, a boy 10
years old; Bernard Murphy, boiler maker,
and Koliert Blemheuber, of Marquette,
Mich. If more bodies are found their iden
tification will le a matter of guess work,
as the heat has expedited decomposition
to a terrible degree and the stench is now
almost unbearable, and the neighborhood
is in arms about it.
Sunday will be set aside as "Heroes'
Day" at the fair and all the proceeds of
admissions to the grounds will lie devoted
to the relief of the families of those fire
men who died while doing their duty.
The executive committee of the directory
WOODEN TUAMCAU SIXTEENTH CENTVKY.
decided upon this action at their meeting.
Contributions continue to come in rapidly
and now amount to $9,205. It is believed
that they will reach 100,000.
A large amount of the goods stored in
the building has been recovered, about
half of it in good condition. Much of
these goods was part of different exhibits.
The cause of the catastrophe has appar
ently been settled. The tower was the
cover of the smoke funnel. This funnel
was not in contact with the woodwork at
any place, but it ended a few feet below
the wooden dome of the tower. The origi
nal plan was to put a collar from the end
of the funnel through the top of the dome.
The collar was altout six inches wider than
the funnel and the space between was to be
filled with asbestos. But the funnel was
not finished, and any sparks escaping from
the funnel were liable to set fire to the
dome. The storage people had been warned
to finish the funnel, but had not done it.
Five times it caught' tire and four times
the alarm was given in" time to stop it.
The fifth there was no guard to give the
alarm. How much responsibility rests on
the fair authorities for not insisting on
the completion of the tower, on the fire
chiefs for letting men go into such a trap
without providing rapid means of escape,
is yet to be found out. They were outside
the tower on a gallery and did not see the
fire dropping down the tower setting it
aflame below them. Neither was there
any one in the tower to watch for this
probable event. That is how the matter

New Yoi:k, July 13. Simon Simpson, 51
years old, who keeps a general store in
Denisou, Tex., was arraigned on a charge
of abandonment by his wife in the Harlem

years old and livtl with a married daugh

twenty-one years ago in Cleveland, O. He
sent her to this city, telling her he would
follow, which he never did.

New York, July 13. Business is practi

coffee, rubber and other houses concerned
in the South American trade in this city.

their ownership of the telegraphic service
