Becanae a Customs Officer Wanted to
Know. Tou, Know Quite a Flurry
Among the "Furrinera" and Much Indig
nationThe Facts a They Appear and
How a Director Talk Probability of
Teace Pretty Soon.
Chicago, July 22. It Hikes an exceed
ingly steady hand and delicate touch, to
say nothing of much suavity of manner
and deference of l)earing, to get along with
the "f limners" down at the exposition
grounds some of them, that is. Our par
ticular frieull Russia is very apt to "geton
her ear," jwhile our other particular
friend Frandfe isn't far behind. Belgium
is on tbe list also with a lot of others of
less importance, except in their own eyes.
The last row has been with the Muscovite.
The customs officers went to the Russian
exhibit and demanded the keys of the
crsl'3, having info mation that the articles
were being sold, which is against the rules
of th" exposition, and the exhibitors know
it. The exhibitor refused to give up his
keys, although he should have known that
he was bound to do so lie was threatened
with arrest and then gave them tip.
Then the Dmire Was l.rjrun.
Then there was a row. Russia's flag
had been insulted, the section of the floor
occupied by the Russian exhibit was Rus
sian territory, by Saint Alexandrarsovol
sgky, and so forth. The exhibit was closed
in a buff, an apology demanded r.nd Old
Nick was to pay. The rustomsoflicers had
been brutally impolite, had shown no
courtesy and it was a disgrace to American
hospitality. In the chorus of howls that
went up all over, Chicago, all denoun
cing the fair official, there was one voice
that t!i!!;"d some Vncle Sam.
"What Uirerter ."chwnb hu1.
There was n i.u"-;'mg uf Russian, French
end Italian exhibitors and talk of going
home to their respective countries ntid
taking their exhibits with them. It is a
wonder srr.ieli:!y don't get tired of all
this and let !:oe a little wild western iiu
paiiciic.'. '..(' came very near it. Direc
tor Schwab s:t:u. '-'e will submit to t:o
COUKTTAKIi OF LA UAr.IDA CONVENT,
threats. We are not at all inclined to
permit foreign cxhibiters to over-ride the
rules under wh'ch they accepted space in
the exposition. They must oliey the ru'"S
and the sooner they come to this coir -sion
the bct;er it will be for them, Th-y
have engaged space and signed a contract
to abide by the regulations.
Nut Kunnlng a Bazaar.
'lf they violate them they must expect
to suffer for it. We are runnifig an expo
sition and not a bazaar for petty trades
men to sell s .oddy goods. If they at
tempt to clo-e their exhibits permanently
we will put a custodian in chare", op-n
them up ami maintain, them at itheir ex
pense. The fair is to be managed by the
authorities in chiu'ge and not by the ex
hibitors." Which looks like healthy se-ise
and is more American than the swift at
tack on the directory which showed
up in print so universally as soon as the
row was annouiK.eil.
True urtlncss of the Trouble.
For the real nub of all this matter is
that the exhibitors nre not allowed to sell
their goods. This is not a new thing; it is
a rule they were hi possession of as soon
as they entered their jjo.1s. A gotid many
of the exhi' its would come into compe
tition with those sold by concessionaires,
w hile all are -ubjccL to duty. Then then
is the fact, as Mr Schwab says, that this
is an exhibition: people go to t he park to
see the goods, and it they are sold they
cannot be sem generally speak hit;. But
the exhibitors want to sell now and some
do sell on the sly, and it i this that brings
the olliccrs into the booths on searches.
Captain Ifall States Some facts.
Captain lisll. who is at the head of the
customs service at the fair, provided an ex
planation of the disturbance. "Acting
under iustrc "tious f.om this office," said
he, "several u: my inspectors visited the
Russian section for the purpose of check
ing over the goods exhibited by Lukutin,
of St. Petersburg. Such a visit is a matter
of every day occurrence here. I am con
stantly bting informed that so-and so is
selling bonded goods. At once my men
are sent to check over the articles, and if
they find that the information is correct
the exhibit i. closed while tho matter is
under investigation in Commissioner
Hoyne's office." And that is what this row
FEATURES OF THE EXPOSITION.
Swedeu Still Celebrating and Stenogra
phers Taking a Day Off.
However, i.'.l these difficulties blow over
and this one will do so. The ruffled feel
ings of tbe Russian bear will be smoothed
and matters will quiet down in a day or
two and theu when an arrangement is
made so that the exhibitors can sell goods,
which is probable soon, one cause of fric
tiou will haw been removed. While all
this was going on the Swedes were keep
ing up their mid-summer celebration with
music and sp.-tcbo, and otherwise quiet
ly yesterday. Today there was more noise,
as it is the finale of the jollification and
will wind up with fireworks. The sten-
ograpners wio are noiaing a congress at
the Art Institute also spent the day at the
Major Fleming and Captain Cusil Lecht
man, of Kansas City, called upon Director
General Davis and arranged for the ap
pearance at the exposition of the militia

clude the famous Hale Zouaves, have been
allotted the camping ground on Midway
l'laisance from Aug. 1 to 10, and will ar
rive on the evening of August 1st. The
zouaves will give exhibition drills almost
daily and will appear frequently at the
Missouri stte building for dress parade
The Japan section in the Art building,
which has been deJfcyed owing to lack of
space, has been formally opened to the
public without ceremony. The collection
excites the admiration of all art connois
seurs who visited the section today. The
twelve bronze falcons xhibited by Tad
masft Hayski, of Tokio. Japan, were the
object of special attention and excited
many expressions of admiration.
The action of some of the railroads in re
ducing their World's fair rates is begin
ning to be felt in the increased attendance.
The average attendance now is larger than
it was a week ago. A good many people

A KING WHO HAS GRIT.
lie Prevents a Murder and Overpowers the
London", July 22. The Lisbon corre
spondent of the Times says that while
driving from the railway station to the
Pena palace King Carlos saw a powerful
man trying to kill a younj man whom he
had thrown to the ground. The king was
alone with his aide-de-camp. He jumped
from the carriage and seized the arm of
the large man, at the same time calling
to the young man to make his escape. Tbe
aide-de-cami. ran to the king's assistance
when he saw there was danger of a fight.
The big man kuocked down the aide and
turned on the king, who dealt him a blow
on the head with his walking stick. The
ruffian tried to draw a knife and revolver,
but ws overpowered by the king, who de
livered him ten minutes later to the po
lice The fight took place ona lonely road,
almost unttaveled at the late hour when
the king and his aide were riding over it.
The king was uninjured. His aide was
