try air in the vast park made walking and
sight-seeing a laborious task. A shower
at noon, however, cooled the atmosphere a
few degrees and during the afternoon the
turnstiles at the pay gates recorded the
advent of many visitors who formed the
priucipnj crowds cf the day.

The puss trutes were almost entirely
ignored, the holders of the photographic

a piece of pasteboard leariug the words:
"Admit one. Benefit Sufferers from the
Cold Storage Fire," or using their passes
and depositing a silver half in the tin
reeeptable which met the eye just inside
the gate. The crowd which the evening
was expected to bring out did not materi
alize and the idle gatekeepers did not have
one kind word to say in favor of Chicago
and her guests for their lack of apprecia
tion of the gallant work of the firemen
who were burned to death on Monday
last. The outward appearance of the fair
did not differ in any, respect from that of
last Sunday save for the emblems of
mourning ' on the engine houses and the
flags at half nm.st.
What the People Could See.
Nearly all the displays made by foreign
exhibitors in the Manufactures building
were draped, while many Americau ex
hibits were closed. The building was vis
ited by many people during the day, how
ever, but most of them spent their time
sitting upon chairs in the long avenues
running through the building and view
ing the white canvasses which shut out
the coveted sights within. Other build
ings had their usual Sunday crowds, t. u
greatestmumljcr of visitors thronging t'..a
Art Palace, the Krupp gun exhibit an 1
the convent. The Plaisance, which al
ways holds the Sunday crowds, was a busy
place all day aud impressed upon the con
cessionaires more firmly than ever the idea
that their part of the fair should be kept
The Prewiring Foorly Attended.
Rev. L. P. Mercer, of the New Church
temple, spoke at Festival hall during the
afternoon on the subject, "How Keudest

never has been. Professor Tomlins di

sang the hymns, and Mr. Arthur Meus
was at the organ. The platform and pul

his text from Luke x, 25, 36, "And behold
a certain "'lawyer stood up and tempted
him, saying: 'Master, what shall I do to
inherit eternal life?' He said unto him:
'What is written in the law? How readest
thou?" The speaker at the close eulogized
the memory of the dead men, and said he
knew their souls . would rest in peace after
the terrible ordeal they had passed through
to roach the kingdom of heaven.
Clingman Will Have to Subside.
A question has arisen as to the injunc
tion obtained by Charles V. Clingman re
straining the directors from closing the
gates on Sunday. Judge Stein says it is
still in force, and if the gates are closed it
will be in violation of the court's order.
W. E. Mason is Clingman's attorney, and
pays the gates wiU not be closed next Sun
day unless his client backs down. Edwin
Walker, chief legal counsel for the exposi
tion company, said the gates would remain
closed. If Clingman refused to consent the
company would go into court and have bis
injunction set aside.
