Chicago. July 20. Scandinavia has
taken possession of Jackson park and will
hold the fort for three days, during which
music, speeches and fireworks will cut a
figure. There is a "whole lot" of Scandi
navian folks in the limits of Chicago to
say nothing of the colonies of that nation

THE GIANT OX COURT OF HONOR.
large percentage of them are at the park
today. Tonight the searchlight on Manu
factures building will light up the statues
in the Court of Honor and show them in
a halo. The appearance of these statues
when so lighted up is inexpressibly beau
tiful. They look like they were chiseled
out of marble and their artistic beauties
are thoroughly developed.
It Is a Gallery of Sculpture.
The Court of Honor is a gallery of sculp
ture. The sj.lcndid figure of America on a
pedestal in the lagoon; the Columbus
Quadrigd in the center of the peristyle;
the MncXonnics fountain; the two mag
nificent and heroic statues of the ox with
the maiden : leading them; the splendid
figures of N:".-man horses, and last bir not
least the symbolical groups on the Admin
istration biiiluing. are all masterpieces in
design r.nd execution, and never look more
perfect than when under the brilliant rays
of the search light.
Two Nights of Light fur Sweden.
The illuminations occur twice a week,
and this week they will both be for Swe
den. Nothing more entruucingly love'y
was ever witnessed by human eyes than'
the Court of Honor on illumination nights, '
ana me met that the Swedish celebration
includes two of the nights is sufficient to
mark it as a reil letter event. But Sweden
proposes to do the occasion justice. Most
nations are satisfied with one day. Even
Germany was. But the Scandinavian

The jollification began this morning by
the parade into the grounds of fifty of the
Swedish societies of Chicago. These were
led by the American Union of Swedish
Singers 500 strong. This union consists of
twenty-five singir.g societies scattered
from St. Paul to Boston. In the parade
there were societies from Chicago, St.
Taut, Rockford. New York, Milwaukee,
Minneapols, Buffalo, and other cities. Tim
members wore white caps and sang ci
they marched. In the afternoon at 4 o'clo ik
these societ les will give a concert at Festival
hall, singing tiio gee and part songs of
Sweddn. For this occasion three of the
most noted Swedish soloists have been en

There is one thing on the Midway Plais

than any other, and that is the omnipres

World. Chicago,- America, have disap
peared, and you are in Egypt so you think.
Coming to the end of. the street you run
against the sign -t-iisener or -i-ausc.,-and,
presto!-you are immediately in Chi
cago again. Beer is everywhere. It seems
the universal tipple. It is that in the
Plaisance. Turks, Arabs, Algerians, Da
homeyans, Indians, and all thirst for it.
The Dahomeyans have learned to like it
since they came here, never having known
the taste of beer until their arrival in Chi
cago, and have developed a capacity for
the anibt-r fluid equal to that of the Ger
man woruars in a- brewery, lately It nas

cases of beer in sight of the platform

other performances, and as soon as the
programme is ended the semi-naked

and dexterously forcing the corks insert

It would be a sad commentary on our
civilization if these people should learn
but one thitig well over here and that is
how to "put away" the white man's "tan
glefoot." Some of the Moors arc said to
be developing a taste for w. jsky and it is
stated that several of the half savages have
had to be sent back to their native land
because of the effect on them of American
drinks. Xhi Hindoo seems to be free of
this vice to a greater extent than any oth
ers of the Orientals. But this may lie on
account of the startling god of prudence
whom he worships.
There was a joke on the national com
mission as a result of the panic over the
storage fire. One of the commissioners ap
peared in the commission chamber in high
excitement, and announced that there was
a pipe in the Agricultural building that
was sure to set fire to something; he could
not hold his hand on it. A committee was
appointed to inform the director general,
and was told by that official thpt the pipe
was harmless. It was only a steam ex
haust, he said, and further informed the
committee that the fact that it was hot to
the hand did not make it dangerous.
The Congress of College Fraternities has
begun its session. The members nearly
startled President Bonney out of a year's
growth by giving a terrible college yell
just as he had cpened l is mouth to wel

various halls of the Art institute of the
Universityof Extension congress.Congress
of College Fraternities, Congress of Social
Settlements and the opening session of
the Emma Willard Memorial association.

JOHNNY CRAPAUD AND SIAM.
A Specimen of the Vniversal Aggressfon
of the Strong bn the Weak.
PAKIS, July 20. The statement relative
to the sending of an ultimatum to the Si
amese government is confirmed by a semi
official announcement. The nltirratum
has been sent, but instead of only twenty
four hours being allowed for an answer
Siani will be given forty-eight hours in
which to accept or reject the demands
made upon her by France. The total in
demnity claimed by France is 3,000,000
francs, exclusive of the claims made ' by
private persons. The ultimatum declares
that if Siam does not agree to the demands
made upon he:- in the time specified the
French fleet will blockade the Menam river,
upon which the Siamese capital is located.
And these are the demands; that the Si
amese evacuate the left bank of the Me
kong river; that guarantees be given by
the Siamese government for the faithfuf
performance of its treaty of obligations,
and that indemnity be paid for the out
rages perpetrated by the Siamese upon the
French. The French are already in pos
session of the lower Mekong river, .tnd if
Siam concedes the demands now made
upon her the river will.be made almost en
tirely French. And thus it is that the
nub of the French demands is the first, by
which Siam will be robbed of a nice piece
of real estate and France be that much
It was but a short time ago that the
river was acknowledged to be a consider
able distance to the westward of the
French strip of influence in Annam. A
mountain range lies a long distance to the
eastward of the Mekong river, and the
French claimed no jurisdiction to the
westward of this range. Recently France
claimed the entire water-shed to the west
ward of the mountains to the river, and
now she demands that the Siamese evacu
ate the western bank.
Nearly Three Years Missing What Was
Found in If is Trunk.
Tiffix. O., July 20. In November, 1890,
Daniel McLaughlin, an unmarried man
78 years old, and supposed to be possessed
of a large amount of this world's goods,
mysteriously disappeared from Jackson,
Mich., whence he started for a three-days'
trip to Indianapolis. Prospective heirs
employed detectives, and since that time a
vigorous search has been prosecuted, but
the whereabouts of the missing man and
his fate have never been ascertained. A
short time ago a trunk belonging to the
missing man was discovered in Jackson,
Mich., and was brought to this city by T.
He was appointed administrator on re
quest of the heirs who reside in Columbus
and Somerset, O., and others in Indiana.
Mr. Kintz has opened the trunk and dis
covered that it contained $390 in cash and
valid mortgage notes amounting to $3,200,
besides a score of warranty deeds to real
estate in Indianapolis, Soath Bend and
Fort Wayne, Ind. Papers found in the
trunk also showed that McLaughlin had
given to various Roman Catholic orphans'
homes donations to the amount of (23,000
and $26,000 to the children of his sister.
Administrator Kintz has reason to be
lieve that McLaughlin left valuable pa
pers elsewhere, but as the old man made
his home in Indianapolis, South Bend and
Fort Wayne, Ind., and Kalamazoo, De
troit and Jackson, Mich., it is a difficult
task to ascertain the location of such pa
pers.' The efforts to discover McLaugh
lin's fate will l continued, and the ad
ministrator will also look np all the prop
erty for which deeds have been found.
THE DREAD SCOTT DECISION.
It Seems to Be Is in Force Vet lloth in the
North and the South.
Chicago. July 20. A crowd of southern
excursionists from Atlanta, Qa., terrorized
Xo. 4 train on the Chicago and Eastern
Illinois road within the city limits, severe
ly beat J. E. Lewis, a colored messenger in
thg employ of the Santa Fe road and forced
another railway employe to jumpfrdta the
swiftly moving train.Thesoutherners called
to the negro with an oath to come to them
and he paid no attention. They then or
dered him again with the remark that
they would leach him to come "when a
white man calls you." But still, believing
the popular fiction that the United States
is a free country, he did not go.
This angered the Georgians and a num
ber of them with revolvers in their hands
advanced toward him, shouting: "Kill
tbe negro." After striking him on
the head a number of times with their
revolvers they forced him to walk down
the car while they Uat him with their
fists and guns. In the meantime a num
ber of the party attacked the switch fore
man, who was still on the rear platform,
forcinwr him to jump from the train.
Lewis finally made his escape to the front
cars, where the passengers protected him
from further assault. On the arrival of
the train at the depot Lewis complained
to the police, but they refused to do any
thing, Baying they had no business to
