College "Frat" Everywhere.
Swedeu did not have the whole park to
itself. In fact it is doubtful to this hour
whether the day was "fraternity," day or
Swedish dajr. There were not as many
"frats," male and female, as there were
Swedes, but they were very visible and apt
to be heard. The young folks, both girls
and boys, were out for a good time, and
all the important, college societes were

They "Took ia" the riatsance.
It was a tody in greetings to see a
couple of these '-frats" meet. The proce
dure was thus: An embrace with the left
arm and an intertwining of the left hand
in the "grip" forming a mysterious knot,
and the simultaneous ejaculation: "Ah!
dear boy; so glad to see you. How does it
go?" It wants to be noted right here that
it was "dear boy" every time, not "dear

To close the day the Sigma Chi fra ernity
took dinner at the White Horse Inn, and
later there was a "Pan-Hellenic" reception
at the New York state Building, where
brothers and sisters met to the number of
830. During the evening the collegiate
gave the crowds a concert of college songs.
College music, as a matter of fact, was the

" RUSSIA GETS HER "BACK UP."
Her Exhibit Closed Because a Detective
Russia' rich exhibits in Manufactures
building were closed to the public as the
result of the action of one of the exposi

being allowed to search one of the booths
in tne exhibit. Nothing was tound amiss
and the exhibitor says he does not know
what ; he man was looking for. Imperial
Chamberlain Gloukhovskoy, who is also

A dispatch from New York says that
General Lew Wallace was asked "What
do you think of the fair?", and replied:
"Never in the history of the world has
there been anything like it in my judg
ment, and I doubt if ever again, for a hun
dred years at least, will it be equaled.
Where shall another fair 1 held? No na
tion other than the United States can af
ford the money necessary. No other na
tion has the energy, the enterprise or the
ambition to reproduce the fair. Itissome
thing the like of which the Old World
knows nothing. In the White City may
be seen all that is best in architecture, In
art, in the industries, in the products of
the whole world."
The council pt administration has or
dered that when any person s foun, using
a pass that does not belong to him the pass
shall be cancelled. This is to prevent per
fons lending their passes, a habit that has
obtained to a considerable extent.

ESSENCE OF RED TAPE.
Chinese Starving to Diatli "Orticiallv," !
15:it Really Well Fed.
Washington. July 21. Sixty Chinese
are, metaphoriva'Iy, starving to death on
board a ste.i-.::er at Portland, Ore., with
plenty to eat at their disposal. This para
doxical state of affairs has been brought
about in this way: The Haytien Republic,
a steam passenger and carrying vessel, re
cently anived in Portland with a large
immler of Chinese on board, and as sixty
of these could not produce evidence that
they were entitled to reside in the United
States, they were forbidden to land. At
the same time the Haytien Republic was
libelled for smuggling opium and Chinese
subjects, with the result that the owners
abandoned the vessel, leaving the sixty
unfortunate Chinese on board.
Believing that the owners had done this
to make the government care for the
Chinese, thus saving themselves from the
expense of supporting and departing the
latter, the treasury department refused to
interfere in the matter and the sixty
Celestials were left on board the vessel un
cared for, foodless and forbidden to land.
A protest from the Chinese minister
caused the admistration to take action,
and after a consultation it has been decided
that this government has no right to inter
fere and that the Chinese must starve to
death pending the disposition of the libel
in the courts. This is the official decision,
but it has also been determined that the
Chinese shall be fed three "unofficial"
meals a day.
