Chicaoo. Sept. ". -There were four
state governor- at the fair yesterday:
Peck of Wisconsin. Flower of New York,
Waite of Colorado ami Pattison of Penn
sylvania. And there were, according to
the official report, 17i.Tii5 people who paid
tlitir way into the grounds to see the gov
ernors and other attractions. .One of the
governois, Pattison, was introduced at
the meeting of the national commission
and made a brief and highly eulogistic
dtlress on the fair. It was proposed to
Introduce Governor Waite, but he de
murred, saying that one governor was
enough for one day.
Peimit-i tvnniii Celebrates Today.
Today is Pennsylvania day at the fair.
Governor Pattison's headquarters, with
bis staff, is at the Chicatfo Heach hotel,
and the City Troop of Philadelphia has its
camp ia a field near by, with the First bat
talion of Peunsylvauia naval reserves.
This morning the Pennsylvania celebra
tion began with a parade from the hotel to
the fair ground. At the camp the gover
nor was received with a salute of seven
teen guns, and.then the parade was .'ormed
in tLe following order: Platoon of police,
the governor of Pennsylvania. Pennsylva
nia commissioners in carnages. City Troop
of Philadelphia, naval reserves of Phila
delphia. Arriving at the Pennsylvania
building, the goernor was received by
Commissioner A. B. Farquhar, who will
preside at the meeting. Addresses by the
governor, the Hod. G. V. Massey, council
of administration; the Hou. Louis A.
Watres. lieutenant governor of Pennsyl
vania, and others will follow.
.Programme for Later In the Day.
Music will be rendered by the Iowa State
band, Cymrodorion society of Scranton,
Scranton and Wilkesbarre Choral unions,
and a grand ensemble of l.UUO voice, in a
hallelujah chorus with the Iowa State
band. At 3 o'clock this afternoon Profes
or King, of Pennsylvania, will ascend in a
balloon from in front of the building, ami
from 4 to 6 o'clock Governor Patterson
will be tendered a recept ion. A special
display of fireworks will be the attraction
for the evening, and the Pennsylvanians
will have a . rand day to remember the fair
by. The City Troop and naval resfrves
will give exhibitions of military tactics
some time during the day, either at their
state building or in front of the terminal
lieesna and Illghee Are Out.
At the meeting of the national commis
sion there were proceedings that brought
dishonor on two men who have been promi
nent in the public prints for some time.
The report of the investigating committee
exonerating Commissioner Mercer, of
Wyoming, of the churgu of dishonorable
conduct and finding Commissioner O. Iiee
son, of Oklahoma, guilty of dishonorable
acts, was adopted with ouly one dissent
ing voice. A nopy of t he report and the
action of the commission was ordered to
be sent at once to President Cleveland and
the governor of Oklahoma. Commissioner
Beeson remained in his seat while judg
ment was teing pronounced. The com
mission unanimously adopted the report
of the special committee finding Frank D.
Higbee guilty of conduct unworthy a
juror of awards and recommending his
Fair Will lie Open Sunday.
In the Sunday closing case the end has
probably been reached, although the expo
sition attorneys still have hopes. Judge
Ewing, on the ground that it would be
judicial discourtesy, has refused to take
up the matter of Judge Goggin's remarka
ble proceedings, and there the case rests.
It will be almost if not quite impossible
for the case to be decided before the close
of the exposition now, as there is no judge
to whom an application can be made at
this time. They are all off on vacations,
and their home-coming is a matter of spec
ulation. It may be said that the fair will
remain open on Sundays.
WALES GROWS ENTHUSIASTIC.
JL Hero of Bong Discovered in the Festival
Festival tall has never been the scene of
snch a demonstration as broke forth dur
ing the progress of the Eisteddfod. Welsh
melody had filled the great hall and the
hearts of the audience. For two hours
the people of Cambria had been listening
to contests in singing aud the decisions of
literary critics. The Rev. Jenkin Lloyd
Jones, of Chicago, was reading a lengthy
decision on the merits of five aspiring
novelists who bad written works of fiction
to illustrate Welsh manners and customs.
A man in the rear balcony began to
tamp his feet. A second later a man next
to him did the same; others joined in rapid
succession; the tumult spread to the gal
leries where the audience was thickest and
in less than ten seconds the entire assem
bly was applauding uproariously.
Tne Welshmen on the stage thought
the audience bad tired of bearing the
reading of the decision. Conductor Evans
and a score of vice presidents waved their
arms frantically and tried to stop the
noise, but they might as well have tried
to stop a tidal wave. Every seuond added
to the wildness of demonstration. When
the noise bad partly subsided a young
man who bad crossed from Cambria to
sing with a male choir shouted, "Daow
Caradoc." There is Caradoc. Then
pandemonium broke loose indeed, and
those on the stage joined in the deafecit.g
disorder. For nearly two minutes every
body tried to make more furious noise
than bis neighbor.
Latest U. S. Gov't Report.
No(f a Welshman lives wno nas not
beard of Caradoc. He is Griffith B. Jones,
and Jo;ie- is known at borne also as Gritl
O'R. Crown. His everlasting fame in the
Welsh world was won in 173, when, as di
rector of the South Vales choir, he wou

dozen fiisliiiiruiaheil I arils, nail then the
audience sang the nat .onal hymn. Cara

The Thomas orchestra trouble is at last
settled. After Thomas resigned the mem
bers of his orchestra ol-.etted to being dis
charged and threatened suits on their con
tracts which called for - heir services dur
ing the continuance of t le fair A compor
mise was reached by wh ch the members of
the orchestra atreed to give concerts In
Festival hall, 25 cents admission, nd pay
the Exposition company all receipts above
their salaries. The hiil! was not large
enough to make it pay and the orchestra
has agreed to disband a:id waive their con
tracts with the company. '
Odd Fellows day is to be a big thing.
The day is in fact two days Sept. 25 and
2t and the demonst rat .on promises to be
one of the most notable of the fair and
probably the most no-able of secret so
ciety demonstrations. General J. P. Ella
cott.of this city, ha been t ommissioued mar-sbal-in-chief
and Chicuto lodges are sup
porting his efforts enthusiastically. Of
this city alone 7.000 met ibers of the order
are expected in line and from outside tne
city 115,000 are promised. The Patriarchs
Militant will add 10,0. o to this army

FRAUDS ON THE GENEROUS.
Disgraceful Facta Developed by Watch
ing tlie Relief of Chicago's "Needy."
Chicago, Sept. 7. Out in the region of
Clinton and Judd streets on the west side
a banker named Kopperl has been making
daily distributions of food to Chicago's
needy. The distributions have been going
on for a week, and now come stories illus
trating the depravity of humanity. It is
asserted as a fact that dozens t ho are per
fectly able to buy their own food have
been daily attendants at the distribution,
and that in some cases -he husband aud
wife have gone under ditrerent names and
obtained a double ration, sometimes more
by overstating the nun ber in their fam
ilies. But here are some unique cases: One
Loebker.who has been a regular applicant,
was followed and found eating the bread
be had begged and washi ig it down with
beer he had bought, w hile the tenants of
two houses he owned were paying him
their monthly rent I A woman from Van
Horn street whose name ;a not given had
ber pocket picked of f00 while she was in
the line of "needy" waiting her turn for
the bread of charity. A Pole, instead of
the slip calling for so mitcb food, handed
in at the supply depol window a check in
his own favor for i!1. The slips these
people receive are redee amble in cash nt
Kopperl's bank aud they are also easily
exchangeable for beer am. it is hinted that
a good many oi them go ttiat way.
It may or mar not be evidence of the
hysterical citizen's hysterics, but it was
loudly asserted in press a ad platform less
than a mo.ith ago that tiiere weie 100,000
men in Chicago who were willing to work
who could get no work of any kind to do.
Great meetings were ht Id on the lake
front, and one was under the special pro
tection and patronnge of Mayor Harrison
at which 15,000mei! who wtiited work were
declared to have been resent. Well, a
booth was opened on the lake front last
Saturday and widely advertised, and less
than 1,000 men have ap eared for work.
The managers called f or 41V . to go out on
the canal yesterday morning and 3U0 was
the numlier that appealed. The day is
eight hours and trains are provided to take
the men out and bring tin m back.
DAYTON AND DAVENPORT.
K York's l'ostinaster rdered to Show
Cause for that Eviction.
New York, Sept. fight between

day by Postmaster Dajtoj, has been
brought into court. Jostpb M, Deneul, a
United States commissioner, appeared be
fore Judge Lacombe in the United States
circuit court as Davenport's counsel, and
in a lengthy argument set forth Mr.
Davenport's case. The judge granted an
order compelling Mr. Dayton to show
cause why Mr. Davenport should be de
prived of the custody of bis records and
i'olioned by Toad tools.
