Tbe erection of the buildings for the Worlds Fair will not follow directly the driving of the first stake. The driving of the first stake is preliminary to the sur vey to determine the lines for the buildings. Buch determination must be made before the architects can bo put to designing the structures. The survey will give the exact dimensions of the ground to be covered by each building. At'the next meeting of the Commission of Architects, which, according to Chairman "Taylor, will be text week, each architect will be allotted the building he is to design. Hot until these designs have been com pleted, the working drawings prepared and Ms contracts for construction let. will ground be broken. "W musfc'let the contracts this fall If we re -to have the buildings ready In time." ' Mid. Chairman Taylor yesterday. TOUT STAKE TO BE MARKED "STATION HO. 1."

It wfll be Inscribed "Station No. L" """"hi stake. will be driven borne by one of the surreror's force. The ceremonial stake will be driven by "Chairman Thompson In this oak stake and extracted Immediately after the ceremonies for preservation. There is some haziness as to the exact pot In which the stake Is to be driven. Some of the constructors declare that the initial point of the survey will bo at Llndell boulevard and DeBallvlere avenue, which Is ' the northeast corner of the site; that whero ver the ceremonial "first stake" Is driven. the actual first stake will be where the transit Instrument Is placed to take the first Wght" into the. grounds, and that the sur veyor -"bench mark" at Llndell and De Sallvlere avenues' is this point. Another constructor declares that the first jUke will be driven about the middle: of the eastern line of the World's Fair site In 'Forest Park. Chairman Isaac- 8. Taylor, In whose chares the work-is, declares that tho sfakn .will be driven at the architectural center of the site, so that the line's of the build ings shall radiate from It in all directions.

When Chief Architect Taylor moves into these offices tbey will be completely equipped," as though they had been occupied for years. The llst'of 'materials to bo sup plied for those offices covers ten typewrit ten pages. PHOTOGRAPHIC COXCESSIOX MAY NOT BE IRON-CLAD. It la likely that the photographic conces sion at the EL Louis World's Fair will not involve. as complete a rnonoply as was tho J case in Chicago or Buffalo. Here no tripod camera not controlled by the concessionaire was allowed on tho grounds at any time from the commencement of construction un til the closing of the exposition. The Pub licity Bureau had to depend entirely oh the material for Illustrations supplied by this concessionaire and had to print a copy right line with each photograph. .This restriction prevented many newspa pers and magazines which desired to pre sent original material from printing arti cles that would have been of great value for publicity. I would recommend a deflation from the plan pursued at Buffalo In this re gard,", said Mark Bennitt yesterday. "Tho photographic concession should have far It. chief grant the preparation and publication of view books. Every other photographic transaction on the grounds should be un der ths supervision of the Publicity Bureau." A .special meeting of. the.

Mr. Bennitt s.iys that the business of the Buffalo ex position I? about finished. All the adver tisement now Is being done through the medium of newspapers throughout the country. "I find." said Mr. Bennitt, "that the or ganization In St. Louis is more com plete and further advanced than at any ex position which has ever been held. There Is no doubt In my mind that It will be pos sible to build the Fair and open the gates by May L 1903. There will be no delays, causcU by conlllct of authority, as was the case at Chicago. The work Is so perfectly organized that once the building begins. It can be pushed to completion without a halt." DRAFT OF HKUl'LATIOXS Vtm FIXE ARTS EXHIBIT. Chairman I. W. Morton of the Fine Arts Committee, with Professor Halscy C. Ives and Thomas H.

Venezuela's official memorandum giving her explanation of her prownt troubles with Colombia, which is addressed to all friendly nations, reached this country to-day by the Red Star steamer Philadelphia from La Guuj-ra, the seaport cf Caracas. a The memorandum Is signed by Eduardo Blanco; the Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Is dated August 16. It was published In the Official Gazette In Caracas to-day, and a translation of the document Is given here with: Tho official memorandum: "Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Confiden tial. To His Excellency Mr. , Minister of , Caracas: Tho Government of the Republic considers it indispensable to lay before friendly nations an exposition of the abnormal situation created by the events which have occurred In one of the States of Yctczuela, which adjoins Colombia, and, as an enlightened Power, to explain to them the unforeseen circumstances which have, against their vlsh, n.ude It necessary to partly suspend the rights guaranteed by the Constitution and to still maintain a warlike atlitt.de, whlcfi is rendered obligatory for the nralntenance of public order und for the upholding of the national honor. Trouble Brewing for a Year. Since the time when the national forces of Colombia. In the middle of the year 1930, overcame the revolution, which was then In the ascendant In the District of Cucuta, and occupied tne territory nearest to the Venezuelan frontier, lively fears of disturb ance began to be felt In the towns and vil lages of Tachlra, and these had their origin In the favor which the military au thorities of Santander openly extended to the principal Venezuelan exiles, the enemies of the Government of this Republic, which was obliged on more than one occasion, owing to an attack on a coast guardsman and to other acts of a like aggressive na ture, to request tho Intervention of the dip lomatic representative of Colombia In :he matter and to ask in a friendly manner, and at times even by way of protest, thnt a change should be effected In the situation on the frontier which, on account of Its un usualness, should not bo allowed to con tinue and should be avoided for Its danger ous tendencies'. Venezuela's Efforts at Neutrality. The Venezuelan executive. In contradiction of the rumors which were then' circulated to the rwt that some military men subject to the Government of Colombia Intended to Invade the conterminous territories with the view of encouraging the revolutionary spirit. were In a position, not deeming It in any way necessary to. collect their forces on the. frontier, to believe the assurance given by the legation that the Cabinet at Bogota, far from stimulating, as was also alleged, such like purposes, was determined to ob serve, and to cause all Its subalterns to ob serve, the strictest neutrality regarding the internal affairs of the contiguous countries. Colombia Invaded Venezuela. About the middle of last July, indeed, a normal condition obtained. The Republic had Just addressed nn extensive circular to all her sister Republics' of America, expres sive .of her desire to contribute "with the greatest efficacy possible to the work of harmony and fraternity which the next conference nt Mexico will" endeavor to re allze. It was, therefore, that the violation of the territory by Colombia troops, with a Vene zuelan revolutionist at their head, came as a double surprise to the Government, be cause, apart from there being no material Indication whatsoever, which could have cauped Jt to be expected, tho very, circum stances In which the Republic found Itself and tho state of relations' with the neigh boring country rendered It Impossible to foresee, not only any such extraordinary acts, but even any movement emanating solely from exiled Venezuelans. Seat a Xote ot Protest. When confirmation of the facts of the In vasion reached the executive power; when It became certain "that the "forces which had violated our territory belonged, to a considerable number, to the regular troops of the neighboring Republic, the Govern ment, on July' 2J, addressed a note to the Colombian Legation, In which they called ' the. attention of the Minister-to the serious fact that the forces which had .crossed' the frontier were organized military troops,-and that this constituted a breach ot the most elementary principles of International- law, and. at the same time, protested against the complicity in this act which could- be attributed .to- the chiefs of that army who were subject,-as It was natural to believe, to the government or the neighboring Be-. public.

Colombian Officials Expressed Sur prise. The' Minister of Colombia, In reply to the protest by the Government, 'manifested sur prise at the news of the Invasion and pre tended that tho fact "could only have been accomplished contrary to the"' definite or ders given to all civil and military employes on the Colombian frontier. He further- added that well-known antecedent circum stances gavo ground for hoping that the participation of entrapped Colombians In the Invasion would not have the importance which was attributed to it. Tho reply ended with a simple, promise to transmit the protest of Venezuela to Bo gota, nnd his Excellency restricted himself to receiving the same "ad referendum." In thlH consideration attention must also be had to the dubious method chosen by the Minister In qualifying the invaders, whom ho considers to be only "entrapped Colom bians." Forced to Take Action. This manner of treatment forced the Chief Executive to see the necessity of ob serving an attitude which, without cutting off the means of future Intercourse, should tho superior powers of the neighboring Re public prove not to have participated in tne aggression, wouia nevertheless be n accordance with the requirements and exi gencies of the national honor and. integrity. Xo Satisfaction From Colombia. With this Intent, the. legation was told, on July 29, that Its answer, far from solv ing, even in part, uny one of the very grave points, raised In' the note of the Venezuelan Minister for Foreign Affairs, was restricted to considerations of a general naturo and to a promise to transmit- the protest to the .Government of Colombia at the first opportunity. The executive power was or opinion that until the answer should arrive and be communicated by. his Excel lency for the purpose of explaining tho .-.Ituatlon of things, they felt It advisable during such time of waiting to suspend re lations with the Colombian Legation, this course being Indicated by consideration ot its own honor arid that of- the country. Clearly an Acttop Wnr. It was demonstrated not only to the Government but to the public that an ovldent violation of Venezuelan territory by battalions belonging to the regular army of Colombia, commanded by their own of ficers, had taken place, and that not even the least change In the appearance, dis cipline or formation of these troops could bo observed. The circumstances were thus greatly ag gravated, for the invaders were not even Venezuelans armed with Colombian rifles and. equipped in secret by their authorities, but the troops of the line of that Republic who had left their own camp in full day, in order to perpetrate the aggression. The' assistance so lent, without any con cealment' whatever, by" soldiers in service, to a Venezuelan revolutionist, while it serious ly modifies the general harmony between the two nations, obliges the Government to hold Itself ready In arms for how long, it Is Impossible to foresee at the present moment-arid this, owing to the inexplicable nature of the aggression, may produce re sults of an .exceedingly grave character. Protests to the World. Until the moment arrives for defining the attitude which this Republic should assume for" safeguarding her rights, her Govern ment solemnly protests, before the civil ized nations of the world, against the In vasion 6f any'.portlon of the national terri tory by military forces belonging to the regular army of Colombia and against the acts committed by them.

Arriv ing over the Milwaukee road this morning, he was the orator of the day at the formal opening of the Minnesota. State Fair, by Invitation of the Minnesota Agricultural So ciety, shook a thousand hands at a re ception following the exercises, was the guest of the Fair Association at lunch on the grounds nnd reviewed the Third Infan try and First Artillery, Minnesota National Guard. "Colonel" Roosevelt occupied the Judges stand at the race track with General Miles, Archbishop Ireland and Goverpor Van Sant of Minnesota. The grand stand was liter ally packed, and when Governor Van Sant, In Introducing the Vice President, asked tho ladles to wave their handkerchiefs and the men to give three cheers, the result was 'a response which the Vice President will long remember. The audience was responsive throughout the Vice President's address, and he bad frequenUy to pause before he could make himself heard. Roosevelt's Address. Tho Vice President. In beginning his. ad dress, paid a high tribute to the character and energy of his hearers descended, he said, from a race of pioneers, which had pushed westward Into the wilderness ahd laid the foundations for new Common wealths. "We cannot possibly do our best work as a nation unless all of us know how to act in combination as well as to act each individually for himself. This acting In combination can take many forms, but of course Its most effective form must be when it comes in shape of law; that is, of action by the community as a whole through the' law-making body. No hard and fast rule can be laid down as to where our legislation shall stop In Interfering between man and man, between Interest and Interest. There was, he contended, but the scantiest Justification for most of the "outcry acalnst men of wealth, as such, nnd it ought to be' unnecessary, he saw, to state that any-appeal which finally entails the possibility of lawlessness and violence was an attack upon the fundamental, properties of Ameri can citizenship: As to our relations with foreign Powers; Vice President Roosevelt said that our na-". Hon, while first of all seeing to Its own domestic well-being, must "not shrink from playing its part among the great nations without. "Our duty," he sald,.."may take many forms in the future as It has taken many forms In the past. Nor Is It possible to lay down a hard and fast rule for all cases. W: must ever face the fact of our shifting national needs, of the" always changing opportunities that present them- : selves. Butwe may be certain of one thing, whether wo wish It or not. we cannot avoid- .hereafter having, duties to do in the face of other nations. All that we can do is to settle whether we shall perform these duties well or- ill. "We do not by this doctrine Intend to sanction any pqllcy of aggression by one. American Commonwealth at'the expense of any other, nor any policy of .commercial dis crimination against-, any foreign Power whatsoever. Commercially, as far as this doctrine is' concerned, all we wish is a fair field. and no favor, but It we are wise we ball strenuously Insist' that under no pre text whatsoever. shall' there be any terri torial aggrandizement on American soil by any European Power, and this, no matter what form, the territorial aggrandizement may take."

Ma, Sept. 2. Labor Day was marked by the largest and most imposing parade of labor unions ever seen here, and by the participation of. William .J. Bryan In the procession and exercises. Eight thousand men marched through the streets grouped In their unions, and each union wearing' a distinguished uniform. These uniforms were made by tho locked out girls of Garment Makers' Union, No. 47, who have started a co-operative factory. These young women, dressed In white, rode In a tally-ho coach, and were cheered all along the line. Mr. Bryan occupied a car riage at the head of the line and was 'cheered whenever recognized. A striking feature of tho parade was the Hod Carri ers' Union, negroes, 223 men, wearing white shirts and black caps, and led by a negro the afternoon there were speaking and athletic games at Electric Park, and to night there were more addresses. The orator cf the afternoon was William J. Bryan, who was preceded by Mayor Reed The pavilion at the park was crowded to suffocation. Mr. Bryan took for his text the-Bible verse, "Muzzle not the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn." Advised to t'e the Ballot. Mr. Bryan said: "Each decade of our history shows great er production of wealth and the men -who. produce it have less to show for It. Is this a good condition a right condition? The solution of tho problems that confront us is In legislation, hot In legislation for or against classes, but for equal Justice before law. The strike to-day Is the only weapon the laborer has, but It is weak and inef ficient. VI have heard that the true solution of. the problem Is for the laboring man to divide profits with the trust- That has been given ns an argument for the trusts: Such a thing would be immoral and impolitic It would be like dividing the spoils of the highwaymen. It would be permitting a man to rifle -your pockets, and then offer to di vide the proceeds', with. you. "To-day the only people who sympathize with you are the others who toil'ln-other parts of the Lord's vineyard. In the pres ent grent steel strike, where did the first expression of sympathy come from? From Texas. They have no steel mills there. They are farmers. Tbey are tillers of' the soil, 'and laborers like yourselves. I want to-warn you to resist the overtures of the I trust. Beware when corporations ask you to Join them. The farmers can stand the encroachments of the trusts longer than you can. The farmers live off their farms. Offer to Divide la a Pitfall. "But when the farmer 'can no longer ;pay trust prices, then there will be no more demand for the products, of your toil. and you" can make no-more wages. The' offer of the trusts to divide with the laboring man Is a pitfall. Can you trust the corporations to" divide honestly? No. How many of you would like to try a lawsuit when the Judge on the bench Is the opposing party to the' suit? There, are good Judges, good juries, yet do you want Judges and Juries to try "your cases when they are interested In the outcome themselves? When you per mit private monopoly to dictate terms of division, then you place yourselves wholly at 'their mercy. Tou allow them to water their stock and then expect them to divide with .labor- on a Just basis. "You are witnessing a battle between labor and the great Steel Trust. This trust is willing to unionize some of Its mills, but would have some .'others open to nonunion lahAp - Whv? Because th trat nmt some mills that It can depend-on in the' event of' a strike.
