FAVOR Til E SCHEME
To Keep the Fair Open Next
WHAT IS SAID AT "WASHINGTON.
The llulldlngs too Iteautlftil to lie Torn
Down So Soon, Hut Chicago Must De
cide "What It Wnuts When I.litle Trouble
Is Looked for in Congress New Knter
tainments at the White City World's
WASHINGT0X,Aug.8. The proposition to
keep open the Columbian World's Exposi
tion throughout the summer of 1894 found
its way to Washington .previous to the
opening of congress, but it had not been
suggested to any members of the Illinois
delegation. Senator Palmer said he could
not talk intelligently upon a proposition
concerning which he knew absolutely
nothing. Senator Cullom said he had
heard such a suggestion made in Chicago,
but had nothing to say beyond the fact
that he would support any measure, with
in reason, which the various boards of the
fair and the people of Chicago might de
sire. Depends on the Chicago I'cople.
Gen. Black, representative-at-large, said
that if the people of Chicago, especially
those charged with the management of
the fair, believed it could be made a le,al
and financial success he would be in favor
of continuing its existence for another
year. Hut only, of course, upon the re
quest of the people of Chicago. Repre
sentative Aldrich, in whose district the
fair ground is located, said it was for the
local directors and the commissioners to
determine that they want the fair kept
open. Upon the expiessionof that request
he had no doubt congress would act favor
ably, and the Chicago representatives
would do all they could.
Too Heautiful to Tear Down.
"We all feel," he added, 'that too much
money has been expended on the buildings;
that they are too beautiful in detail and
magnificent as a whole to be destroyed in
six niocths. Xovemlx;r is not a bad mont h
in Chicago, and independent of the ques
tion of continuing the fair next year, I
think it would be a good thing to Keep
it open until Dec. 1." Representative Dur
borow thought the extension of the fair
would be a good thing. It would help out
financially and allow a greater number of
persons to visit it.
Has Confidence in the Managers.
Representative llitt, of the district ad
joining Chicago on the west, said enthusi
astically that whatever the people of Chi
cago desired to hae done, after a full
study of the situation, ought to lie done,
and he would aid in accomplishing it.
"The matter, however," he said, "should
not be hastily determined. Philadelphia
discussed a continuance of the Centennial,
but finally concluded not to attempt it.
But I have confidence in the managers of
the Columbian reposition ami know that
if they lielieve the opening next year can
be successful they will make it so."
BIG BOOM ON AT THE FAIR.
Novel Kntertainiueuts That Will lie Civrn

Chicago, Aug S. From now on
there will lie lively times at the
World's fair. The managers want
more people on the grounds and they are

Jackson park look as though a World's
exposition was being held there. Thurs
day night there will be an Indian war
dance on ' rvat float in the south pond,
and the dance will be frequently repeated
during the fair, all the aborginal Ameri

Later in the week the Indians will have a
boat race in 'heir own boats.
Another entertainment will be a series
of concerts given In Festival hall by the
different tribes in turn, including the Jav
anese, Turks, and others in the Plaisance
and the red Indian of this continent. It
is also under consideration to have the va
rious bands parade through the grounds
playing stirring airs, instead of confining
them to the band stands in other words
to scatter the music all over the park.
There will be a novel hoi) given in the Na
tatorium building ' Aug. 10, in which all
the Plaisance dancers will appear not in
the "dance du ventre" and Director Gen
eral Davis will lead the grand march with
one of the Oriental beauties. This, how
ever, will cost those who witness it $3 per

OPENING OF THE BIKE RACES.
Sauger Gets a Fall That Lays Itiui Off for
a Few Days.
Chicago, Aug. 8. Walter Sanger's bad
tumble, a number of surprises and a good
series of events marked the opening of the
L. A. W.'s international meet. Sanger's
fall and inability to participate in the
races for two or three days gave the enthu
siasts reason to feel disappointed, but it is
thought that by Friday the Milwaukee
crack will again be in form and ready to
try conclusions with Zimmerman and the
foreign racers in competition for the Sal
tonstall trophy and the world's honors.
The day was cool but not unpleasant, and
atout 3,000 persons attended the finals of
the day's events in the afternoon.
The fore wheel of one of the riders
caught Sanger's pedal during a race and
when Sanger went down about a dozen
others piled on top of him. He is only
skinned and bruised up pretty badly no
boues broken. In the pile of wheelmen
were six of the best cyclers on earth. -Xo
one except Sanger was hurt enough to re
quire assistance. Zimmerman cut two
more note) s in his victorious stick by
winningboth the O; en rates the third-milo
and one mile, the former in 0:43 4-5 and
the other in 2:38 1-5. F. H. Tuttle won the
half mile state championship in 1:21, with
Githens second and Knisely third.
J. H. Bliss acquired the two-mile Illi
nois championship in 5:303'. Zimmer
man, II. Smith and McDuffee, the scratch
men in the five-mile handicap, did not
start, J. P Clark, of Boston (100 yards),
winning the even' in 12:08, and had he
started at scratch be would have lowered
Lumsd' n's liest on record. The two-mile
5:30 class was a loaf, Steele, of Chicago,
winning in 5:10. The races were splendidly
managed, delays being avoided, and aside
from some loafing in the distance races
the sport was excellent. Tylr .nve Zim
merman a ard drive in the third-mile
open, and la er the champion was defeated
in the half-mile handicap. Iu the field of
eleven he fir' hed fourth, three-fifths of a
second behind the leader, Brown, of Cleve
I'nrle Sam Nocking Soldiers in British
Ottawa. Out., Aug. S. A large poster
in a store window here causes much com-'
incut. It is a notice signed by Recruiting
Officer l.iir enaut Archer Yates, second
lieutenant of the Xinth infantry, of Og
tler.sburg, X. Y.. holding out strong in
ducements for recruits to joia the United
States infantry and cavalry. The placard
is of recent 'ssue, quotes the new military
law of Feb iary last, and mentions the
increased rate of pay.
A Conservative paper, referring to the
matter, says: "That such a poster should
be displayed in a Canadian city is most ex
traordinary. By some citizens its exhibi
tion in public in Ottawa is regarded as a
brazen piece of effrontery, and by others
as an indication that the United States
army is so unpopular on the other side of
the line that enough recruits cannot be
obtained there. Anyway the poster ought
to be hauled down'
