Wood" Comment on the St. Clair Epi

Chicago, July 27. There were two ir
ruptions on the World's fair that "snowed
under" the editors yesterday the com
mercial travelers and the Turners. The
editors, whether from Indiana or Alabama,
didn't mind i;, however; they were there to
see the show, and the new arrivals added to
the attractions. The drummers were
taken charge of by the American exhib
itors, and they made great plans. They
had an idea that they knew a thing or two
that the traveling men would like, and
they guessed so closely that they had the
"boys" with them most of the day. And
this is how they did it: The first thing
after they had opened their room? in the
Terminal station they had plenty of water,
lashings of ice, some bowls, a lot of lemons,
sugar, several barrels, and a few dozen
bottles brought in.
And It Warn Highly Enjoyed.
The fact that too much plain water is
not good for some men a good many
men in fact was the fact that atcrial
i;:ed those barrels and bottles.
''It is one of the most enjoyable little
spreads I evi-r attended," said one of the
travelers. "There is everything here that
a man could wish for."
"Plenty to eat, I suppose i"
"I beg pardon."
'"There is n luncheon of course?"
"Yes, I bt-iieve there is. Yes, I know
there is. I hadn't thought of it before,
hut 1 recaii now that there are sand
wiches and all that suit of thing if any
oi;e cares fir then-.: But this punch
have you sampled it:'"
And that is why the exhibitors began
entertaining the travelers before the
scheduled hour, and also why the travel
ers were somev. hat la ie in assembling in
Festival hull to hear Mayor Harrison tell
of the time when he was "on the road"'

But they ": th-r.- in pr.-lty good force,

to postpone the Festival hall exercises and

and he asked Colonel C. I, Young, of
Springfield, Mass., to respond, which that
gentleman did, waving the sword above
his head and rousing the meeting to a hlh
pitch of enthusiasm. After the meeting
the travelers visited Administ i-aticn
building, and other features of the fair.
The Turners Come Marching On.
An 4:33 p. ra. an army of Turners swooped
down on Jackson park and marched
through the grounds, receiving an ovation
from the crowds that thronged the broad
thoroughfares. The strong men in gray,
each carrying his steel wairff, marched like
soldiers, and headed by a band proceeded
to the Stock pavilion by way of Adminis
tration plaza. Each delegation was heart
ily cheered as It swung into the Grand
court. A small coterie of fin looking
men whose lead-r carried a banner bear
ing the word "New York" was loudly ap
plauded, the effect being drowued a mo
ment later, however, in the welcome ac
corded the long line of marchers from
Illinois. The Iowa delegation, which in
cluded a number of young women, was
enthusiastically received. Among the
various Tuiu Yereins' in the procession
were the, Peo.ia, C.eveland, Aurora La
Salle, Joliet, Klgin, and a large delegation
Drilled at the Stock I'avilion.
It was nearly 5 o'clock when the Tur
ners reached the Stock pavilion. A great
many people congregated there to see the
performance and welcomed the athletes
with loud cheers as they marched inside.
The programme included gymnastic
games, fencing with foils, dumbbell drill
by veterans and wand drill by 3,000 mem
bers. The day's festivities were closed by a fine
display of fireworks which included a
special device of illumination of park and
lake, and a special gigantic design in honor
of traveling men's night, size 40x00 feet,
lights on the pier, design representing the
Falls of Niagara, 350 feet long, falling
from a height of eighty feet, displaying
beautiful prismatic effects, mammoth
bombs, tmndreds of rockets, etc.
GEN. ST. CLAIR'S LITTLE "SCRAP."
Comment of a Chicago Faper on tire Inci
dent Fair Kotes. '
The city press is rather on the side of
the gatekeepers with reference to their
little difficulty with General St. Clair.
One city paper says that St. Clair has
gone about with a chip on his shoulder
from the start, and presumed on his office
to the extent of ignoring all rules aud
regulations where he happened to be con
cerned. The DaDer says; "As a matter
of discipline General St. Clair bad no more
right to beat or fight his way into the ex
position grounds on his personal charms
than the humblest employe about them.
Without ticket or badge he had
no business . j even ask a ticket-taker to
pass him on Yds word or face. If a gate
man can accept this of a national commis
sioner whero will his discretion end. In
stead of flying into a passion on a hot
day, getting licked and reporting thegate

Collector Clark sent a detailed report of
the trouble growing out of the examina
tion of certain goods on exhibition in the
Russian section at the World's fair to Sec
retary Carlisle, and the latter fully sus
tains the collector and lays down the prin
ciple that the "customs custody of for
eign goods is not theoretical, but actual
and complete. Until duty has been paid
and a permit for the release is made out
the custody is paramount as against the
exhibitor, the foreign commissioner or
the officers of the exposition. Neither of
them, or all combined, can interfere with
the custody, nor with the officers to
whom the duty of enforcing it is entrust
ed, except in violation of law."
An exhibit in the Electricity building
that attracts a large crowd is the heating
of iron by electricity. The iron is
plunged into a bucket of water and actu

current of "lightning" that is passed
through it while submerged in the water.

Some 41Ktruse Questions Discussed by the
IVojile at Art Institute.
CnicAtiO, July 27. The educators in

discussing some abstruse questions. The

anything, and if so what is it to know?"

deep interest was the v-nerable Dr. Mc
Cosh, ex-president of $ inceton college.
