World's Fair Grounds, Chicago, July
H- A couple of thousands merry, bright
looking,' prettily dressed boys and girls
from Maine to California and Texas,
swarmed all day about the New York and
Pennsylvania buildings, particularly, but
they seemed to think Jackson park was
transformed into the White City for their
special purpose and education. They were

stories not of the trashy, pernicious order.
Nearly all belonged to an order known as
the Knights and Ladies of the Round

advantage by the founders :o bring the
youngsters together for the first tune, not
only that they might see and talk with

who have writton for magazines the
stones which these boys and girls have
read with pleasure and profit.
Rereption to Favorite Authors.
The Xew York board of managers ten
dered the state building for the use of the
juveniles, and they enjoyed themselves im
mensely. After nn hour spent in inter
course. i ::c:i,inge of ideas, and stories the
boys and ';: ! gathered at 2 o'clock in the
gorueous banquet hall of the Empire State
building. Kir!; Monroe took charge of
them, and introduced all he could to him
self. Charles Dudley Warner, Margaret E.
Saugster, Charles Cartton Coffin, Margaret
Sydney (Mrs. Lathrop), Alice M. Gurnsey,
General Nelson A. Miles, and others. All
except General Miles addressed the Knights
and Ladies in an interesting style, and
each writer was given a most cordial re
ception. Afterwards as many as could be
seated on the broad steps and piazza of the
state building were photographed in an
artistic group. All this time the state
band was playing on the veranda of the
Pennsylvania buildings. The Ladies and
Knights were received and Introduced at

The Fall of the Bastile.
The World's fair commission for France,
the consular representatives of that repub
lic and the French-Americans in Cli cago
generally are uniting in celebrating today
the anniversary of the fall of the Bastile.
The cereriionies were quite interesting, al
though nothing of a very formal charac
ter was carried out: No set oration- were
made, the addresses being of the niot im
promptu character. The celebratio i con

number of invited guests, preparations
having been made to entertain probably
from 5:)0 to TOO. This I. real, fast was be

rooms of tbe White Horse inn on the
grounds. After the breakfast a "gander"
party and promenade concert was held at
the French government building at the
north end of the grounds near the lake
A Hospitable Knd Indian.
One of the 'most hopitable men on the
fair grounds, apparently, is the manager
of the India building a little west of the
German building. Here can be seen a
varity of the beautiful work for which
East Indians are famed. But the hospi
talitywill that consists in the free dis
pensation of good black tea with or with
out sugar or milk. It is made in true East
India style and looks stroug enough to
knock one down, but it isn't and
those who have tried it are rapidly com
ing to the conclusion that tea is raised in
India as well as china and that is "what
we are here for."
Lively Time ou Change.
Captain Andersen, of the Viking, and
his sturdy crew visited the Jtfoard of trade.
As they were escorted across the hall
there was uproar in all the pits. President
Hamill introduced the visitors to the
bookers from the galifery.. Captain An
dersen made a little speech after which the
crew gave some rousing Norwegian cheers.
The brokers cheered in return, and for
five minutes there was a lively time. Cap
tain Andersen has written a letter to O.
A. Thorp, Secretary of the Norwegian
World's fair committee, in which he says
the Viking will be sold for the benefit of
the Old Seamen's home in Norway.
ECHOES OF THE
A Debate About "lieros
at the Inquest.
The city papers have taken up the ques
tion of which day to set apart as "Heroes'
day" with their usual avidity. Some in-

apart the day when the attendance is

Oneingenauously remarks: "No man has
yet been found to raise a protest against
the project of donating the entire receipts
of one day at the World's fair gates to the
relief fund," etc. meaning by "no man"
principally the general public. The g. p.
is not in the habit of protesting against
somebody else's money being used for
The directory takes a view that doesn't
seem to strike a good many people that
the money it donates from the fair exche
quer is money that does not belong to it,
buttoitscr litors. The fair has $5,000,000
in bonds to ny when the show is all over.
More than that, it still owes money to the
contractors, which should have been paid
long ago. One suggestion is that Sab
batarians will not go to the fairon Sunday
even for charity. This can be gotten over
as easily at least as a church fair by the
man who sticks to the letter of the Fourth
Commandment buying a ticket and stay
ing away, is the argument that some use.
The body that the Urummond brothers
worked so hard to uncover proves to bs
somebody el.-e than their brother, for por
tions of his body have been found else
where with marks that undoubtedly iden
tify it. Another body has been found
also, which makes the number of dead
sixteen so far. This is proved to be that
of C. F. Purvis, a fireman, and was identi
fied by a ring on the finger of one hand
with his name engraved thereon. There is
at least one body at the morgue which is
absolutely unidentified. The direct search
for bodies ha3 been stopped and the ruins
will now be examined systematically for
whatever is there. Every particle will be
thoroughly examined and carted away as
soon as possible. There are still thres
missing unaccounted for.
The coroner has begun his inquest and
his office was crowded with friends and
relatives of the victims fiie fire, but
Uttle could be dene toward identifying the
remains of the eight charred and -mangled
bodies lying in the dead room. In one in
stance a corpse was claimed by thres
families and the coroner found it neces
sary to call in his jury, who listened to the
descriptions of the missing men given
by their families. The jury then examined
the corpse and decided that it tallied best
with the description given by John A.
Smith. The remains were ordered to be
given to Mrs. Smith.
Twenty-five thousand dollars have thus
far been coutiibuted from various sources
towards the fund for the relief of the
widows and orphans of the firemen who
gave up their lives during the firj at the
cold storage building. The interval be
tween now and Sunday will witness a
heavy increas in this amount, and, added
to the Sunday receipts at the exposition
gates, it is confidently expected that be
tween $73,000 and $100,000 will be realized.
The council of administration of the
World's fair has issued an order prohibit
ing visitors from getting out on the
roofs of the big buildings. The order had
special reference to Manufactures hall and

have broad walks around the roofs. These

JUDGE JENKINS IS WORRIED. -
He Hardly Knows What to Do About
Chicago, July 14. A telegram from
Milwaukee says that Judge Jenkins, wfco
was indicted in connection with the fail
ure of the Plankinton bank, says that he
had no idea that he was to be indicted.
Had he received the least intimation of the
fact he would have immediately resigned
his seat on the circuit court bench. Jnst
what action he will take now he can not
state positively, but he will leave the mat
ter in the hands of Mr. Cleveland.
Tha judge states that he cares nothing
about the reputation this trouble will give
him as a private citizen, because in the end
he will be wholly exonerated from any
wrong-doing; but it is the imputation on
the fair name of the judiciary of the coun
try to which this scandal attaches that is
his greatest burden and source of regret.
The judge's friends at Chicago are gener
ally of the opinion that the indictment
was a mistake.

Chicago, July 14. Catherine Schurz, a
nieces of Carl Schurz, of New York, form
erly secretary of the interior, was a pri
soner in the insane court here. From the
evidence it appears she was sent to Amer

rived in New York four weeks ago. After
wandering, demented, fourteen days on
the streets, her brother Fritz sent her to
Chicago, where she was picked up by the

The Women Shut the Mine.
Leavenworth, Kan., July 14. The
Home mine, where trouble with the min
ers' wive occurred, has shut down again,
and not a man has entered the shaft. The
influence brought to bear by the strikers
and their wives kept so many willing
workers from resuming that the company
realized that it would be useless to at
tempt to work with less than two score
men and at the same time risk the chance
of a riot.

The Bold Bank Bobber Bides Away With
Mound Valley, Kan., July 14. The
Bank of Mound Valley, owned by C. M.
Condon, of Oswego, was robbed by three
men who rode into town, and entering the
bank tied and gagged Cashier J. O. Wil
son, and secured the money in sight which
amounted to fflUO. Before Mr. Wilson
could give the alarm the robbers had made
their escape and were on their way to the
territory, twenty miles south. As soon as
the news reached Coffeyville several posses
started out to intercept them, but it is
more than possible that they will escape.
Mound Valley is a town of about 1,000
people, eighteen miles northeast of Coffey
ville in Labette county at the crossing of
the 'Frisco, and Missouri, Kansas and
Texas roads. This was the only bank in
the town. Its capital stock is f 15,000, but
on account of its proximity to Oswego but
little money is kept in the bank in the
town. The robbers were white men and
FIVE UNKNOWN DEAD.
A Serious Accident on the West Shore
Four of the Dead Women.
Newhirg, N. Y., July 14. The West
Shore express was derailed in the southern
part of the city and collided with a freight
train, resulting in the death of four un
known women and the babe of Burnham.
Elberson, who with his wife was severely
hurt. The names of the dead women will
not be known until discovered by the cor
oner, the nrticles that would have served
for identification haying been separated
from the bodies in the confusion.
Fifteen persons were injured, including
the Elbersons, of whom Jane Cook, of
Cfttskill, will probably die and John Kob
inson's recovery is doubtful. C. J. Cis
taire was internally hurt and the others
have severe cuts, bruises and a few broken
bones. They will all probably recover.
The cause of the accident is nnknown.
