Chicago, July 15. After July 1(5, Sun
flay opening of the World's fair will be a
thing of the post. At the meeting of the
local directors, by a vote of 24 to 4, a reso
lution vt-ns adopted ordering the gates of
the exposition closed on the first day of the
week, after tomorrow. The entire receipts
Sunday are to be donated to the families
of the lircmen who lost their lives in the
FRKVCH CSOVEnVMEXT liril.KIXO.
Where. "Bastilo Day" coleliration was ht.-l.
cold storaue wareliinise fire. The directors
were reluctant to admit, that Sunday open
ing had proved a failure, but the dwindling
attendance and the opposition of many
exhibitors who were unwilling to meet
the extra exp'nse entailed by a seven-day
iair nas iorcpil the conclusion upon the !
local managers of the exposition that noth- i
lug was to be gained by a Sunday fair.
Tln.ne Ilvt.rin Were All Wrong.
The people who went into hysterics over
the proposal to deprive the working people
of their "rights"' seem to have been a little
off a gol deal "oft"' indeed. The work
ing people who are unable to attend on
week days have not taken kindly to a Sun
day fair with motionless machinery and
covered exhibits. The persistent opposi
tion of the regions element throughout
the country has without ; doulit had a
powerful influence in bringing about the
action W the directors.
I'roiuiitra of the Sabbatarian.
Hundreds of petitions have lieen re
ceived from religious bodies and promi
nent preachers praying that the fair be
closed on Sundays and promising all the
aid in their power to make the exposition
a financial success if such action were
taken. One letter was read to the direct
ors signed by a large number of Chicago's
best known preachers, including such
names as those of Bishop Merrill, of the
Methodist Episcojwil church: Dean Hul
bert, of the divinity school. University of
Chicago; Arthur Edwards, editor North
western Christian Advocate; the Rev. Dr.
Barrows, chairman of the general com
mttee of the religious congress; Simeon
Gilbert, editor of The Advance; Dr. Gun
eaulus, Dr. McPherson and others equally
That General Iemantl Was Absent.
The address declared that a fair
trial had proved that there was no general
demand for an open Sunday, and that the
highest succe" of the exposition was im
perilled by the alienation of millions of
people who were opposed to Sunday open
ing. It appealed to the directors to close
the fair on Sundays, so that the religious

element could bo free to co-operate with
them in making the exposition as remark
able for its attendance as it was for ita
material grandeur. This appeal is a sam
ple of hundreds of others with which the
directors have been flooded for the past
six weeks, and the conclusion was forced
upon them that much was to be gained
and little to be lost by Sunday closing.
ConresHionalrea Don't Like It.
The action of the directors will deal a
severe blow to the interests of concession
aires, many of whom count upon Sunday
as their npst profitable day, ut the ma
jority of exhibitors as far as conld be
learned are satisfied with the closing.

Auditor W. K. Aekerman has issued a
statement of the finances of the fair from
the time of its incorporation to July 1.
The total amount of money received by
the fair from bonds interest, souvenir

Eight Unidentified Hulled at Oakwnods
C'emete.-y With Two Servicen,
The funeral of eight unidentified vic
tims of the cold storage fire was held
from engine h mse 45, Hyde Park, and was
attended by h vast concourse of people.
The procession was led by twenty police
men followed by the band from the Ex
position company, then came 125 firemen
selected from t,he active fire department of
the city under the command of Assistant
Marshal Green, and following these a com
pany of fifty Colombian guards and ten
sergeants conmanded by Captain Shunk
and Ijieutcns nts Ely and Sage. Accbm
paning theSKuards was a mounted de
tachment of 1 19 army officers on duty at
the fair. The civic societies were repre
sented by members of Hyde park lodge
Knights of Pythias and several Masonic
lodges. Then came the funeral car ap pro
priately drape 1 and drawn by eight black
Then followed carriages containing the
friends and relatives of t lie dead men. The
cortege proceeded slowly to the Church of
the Holy Cross, on Maryland avenue,
where the Roman Catholic funeral ser
vice was read over the bodies by the Kev.
Father Hishei . These over, the band re
commenced its slow and mournful strains
and the cortege continued the sad march
to Oakwoods cemetery, to the lot donated
by the presid -ut of "the Oakwoods Ceme
tery association. Protestant services were
held here and the eight caskets were low
ered to their final resttng place, Ueautiful
and numerous floral designs were contri
buted by the civic societies, tin; firemen,
the Columbia i guards and a host of sor
rowing friend-j. A monument dedicated
to the unkno vn dead will be erected at
considerable cost upon the place of burin1.
The debris o:' the storage warehouse was
drenched with disinfectants and 2iK) men
put at work clearing it away. It will re
quire proliably a fortnight to remove it all
and everybody believes that there will bp
other dead bodies found. It is a difficult
task to clear sway the wreck as . there is
a tangled netw ork of pipes to remove cov
ering a large area.
It has been learned that Robert Blen
heuber, who was supposed to have lieen
in the bnildine when it fell, is alive. This
leaves one bod" of the identity of w hich
there is no trace. The coroner began tak-
ing evidence, but the witnesses examined
only proved .nit certain men had lost their
lives in the fire.
At the banqtet given in the grand hall
of the New York state building by John
A. McCall, p-csident of the New York
Life Insurance company, to 2(Ki general
insurance agents, it was voted to contriU
ute $1,000 to tl e fund for the families of
the firemen killed. U. W. Ferris, of the
Ferris Wheel cimpany, notified the coun
cil of administration that one-half of the
receipts from the wheel today would lie
devoted to the firemens' relief fund.

his speech he said: "Before Luther's
reformation fred us from bondage the
word 'church' vas only another name for
secularism.' Luther made possible the
consummation of Christian hope, so that
we can look forward to an absoluta su
premacy of the word of God."
Election of representatives of the differ
ent states to rpeak for the work in their
states followed, each representative elected
taking the stanl and making a short re
port of progress. Kentucky's representa
tive did not hear his name called at first

shouting "I'm 1 ere, I'm here," and raised
a universal laugh. The financial report
showed an ind ;htedness of $10,280 incur
red in starting a newspaper organ. The
j receipts were fc'1,470 for the year.
Banners were awarded to J. H. McDon-
Christ; to V. E. Gillespie, of Waterman,
