LOST $600 WORTH OF DIAMONDS.
A Pretty Row Between the Clows and the
Ever since the fair opened, the Clow
Sanitary company .which has the conces
sion for the pay toilets on the grounds,
has refused tj recognize the Bonfield de
tective headquarters as the place to leave
lost articles, Clow saying thathe proper
ty might as well be turned over to the
thieves ns detectives. Yesterday the de
tectives 'gt. even" by arresting one
of Clow's attendants on char ge of appro
priating (COO worth of diamonds left in a
lavatory ran by Clow. Whether the
charge is true or not will be developed
later, but if it is Bonfield will be immense
ly tickled. The custody of lost articles has
now been given to Ackerman's depart
ment, but it is emphatically stated that
this is no reflection on Bonfield.
The first of a series of high diving and
trick swimming performances was given
in the park by Professor John Albert, his
son, Emil, and Frank O. Norin and Ha jal
mar Norin, of Stockholm, Sweden. A
wooden tower was built sixty feet high on
olles oDDoeite Professor .Albert's nata-
torium,Tue JiepTn 'ot water being o'nly nine
feet. The Norin brothers took running
dives from the top of the tower, but Frank
struck the bottom slightly on his head.
The quartette of high divers took the water
in a bunch from the forty-foot elevation in
the presence of several thousand people
who gathered along the lake shore.
Acting in the general spirit of economy
which now prevails, Superintendent of
Admissions Horace Tucker has served no
tice of release on seventy-nve gatemen ana
ticket takers. Hereafter the childrens
tickets will be received at the workmen's
gates and the childrens' gates will be
abolished. That will na'..e a saving of
about $4,000 a mouth in the admissions
Illinois day at the fair, Aug. 24, will
offer attractions that ought to draw out
thousands of people from the Prairie
State, from Chicago down to Egypt. The
Illinois commissioners have decided to do
what Mr. M.llet calls "circusing" things.
They will bring every race of people on
the grounds into requisition in some way
or other and make them appear to the
best advantage. The fun will begin
early in the .norning.
The international swimming race was
easily won by the South Sea Islanders.

Creek to lay water mains. The Italians
were under contract to work for 1.75 a
day. The American laborers at the same
work had previously received 3 aday. The
Americans armed themselves, met the
Italians upon their arrival and forced
them to return to Denver.
The incident was reisirted by the Italian
consul here, Signor Urimaldo, to the Ital
ian ambassador at Washington. A few
weeks ago, afrcr communicating with the
Italian government, the ambassador wrote
a letter which was sent by Minister Fava
to Secret. -try of State (iresham asking that
the rithTs of the Italians bo protect e 1.
This letter was forwarded to Governor
Waite. ;::nl nis answer is now on its way
to Wcsiiinjton. In it. while deploring the
incident, the governor states that it was
caused, not by a hatred of Italians, but
from a general lecling against cheap con
