Diagram showing the relative jvositions of the various leases on the Catlin tract and the relation of
the entire tract nnd Lindoll boulevard to the World's Fair site. The stars at the intersections of Union
boulevard with Lindell boulevard and Skinker road with Lindell boulevard show that portion of Lindell
which has been leased to the connecting railway. Lindell boulevard between these points is a part of
the Catlin tract, having never been dedicated as a public thorough fare.

Owners of the Catlin tract announced last
night through Slopes Greenwood, that
leases of nearly every foot of the Catlin
tract -which the "World's Flair corporation
has sought to condemn have been executed
by the' Park View Realty Company. In

to the Bay State Company end the Con
necting Railway Company, for a period ex
tending bjond the- close of the Exposition.
The papers covering the terms of the
transfers were filed a week ago In the
Recorder's office. They show that "William
D. T. Cave, treasurer of the Century Thea
ter, was the party named In the transfer
of 3,200 feet along Lindell boulevard, begin
ning at the west limits of the lease of the
Wabash depot terminals and ending at
Skinker road. The northern line of the
lease Is the thirty-two-foot right of way of
the Wabash extending through the center
of the Catlin tract. Cave asigned the lease
to R. F. Kilgen. president of the Bay State
, Lindell boulevard, from Union boulevard
to Skinker road, Is leased to the Connecting
RaUway. That portion of the Catlin tract
north of the Wabash 32-foot right of way,
from De Bailvere avenue to Skinker road
with tha line of the Colorado Railway as
the north limit has been leased to the Con
necting Hallway, and likewise a strip U5
feet wide north of the Colorado Railway,
beginning 1,100 feet west of De Bailvere ave
nue and extending through the Catlin tract
and 1,700 feet beyond Skinker across other
property of the Park View Realty Com
pany, to the north and south line of the
Suburban Railway.
A. further lease of 300 by 200 feet has been
made of the northwest corner of Lindell
boulevard and De BaHvere avenue, forming
a, triangular piece of ground Just outside ot
the strip secured, sometime ago by the Wa
bash Railway for depot terminal.
President Francis was surprised last night
when Informed of the repmt in i elation to
the leases. He said that the property which
had been transferred was that which the
World's Fair Company had Intended to add
to the Exposition site, and all he could
say was that If It became Impossible to
obtain the property. It would be necessary
for the Exposition management to cut
down a great many more trees In the
Forest Park tract, which had been as
signed to the company, for the purpose or
erecting structures Tor the Fair.
He declared that he had not read the
decision of the court, announced yester
day, with respect to the condemnation
suit, but understood that it acknowledged
the right of the Exposition Company to
condemn, while It made clear the necessity
for the company to specify to what uses
the ground would be put.
Joseph H. Beckwith. secretary and Incor
porator of the Connecting Railway Com
pany, which came lntp existence two months
ago, confirmed at his residence last night
the details of the leases secured by the Con
necting Railway Company on the several
portions of the Catlin trsct which have-already
been described.
R. M. Kilgen. president of the Bay State
Company, confirmed the lease on the Catlin
tract last night He said that the transfer
had been made In their case about one
monxn ago, ana mat the papers were filed
at that time.
"Beyond stating that the lease Is In con
nection with the World's Fair I am not at

it evident that the frround would be usjd
for amusement enterprises.
The original lease on a portion of the
Catlin tract was mads two months ago. It
Included a trlancle beginning at the main
line of the railway east of De Ballvlere ave
nue, and carried the road across that thor
oughfare Into a strip beginning on the west

Court Upholds This Privilege, but
States That Property Uses

President Francis Says Fair Man

Ruling, but Uoes Not In

Judges Hough and Wood decided yester
day. In the condemnation proceedings of
... TIf lt Ti . ...
nu trufms lair corporation against tne
Park Valley Realty Company, owners of
the Catlin tract, that the Exposition Com
pany had the right to condemn that ground
for public uses, but held that it was neces
sary for the Exposition management to
state specifically what upon thiy intended
iu mane oi me property. The suit was dis
missed for the reason that these uses had
not been set forth.
At a late hour last night President Frau
ds and other officials of the World's Fair
were not ready to commit themselves as
to the future course of the Exposition Com
pany. General Counsel James L. Blair
stated that ho had not read the decision,
but understood that it accorded the compa
ny the right to condemn under certain pro
visions. In the whole, the decislnn una
regarded as satisfactory to the World's Fair
The decision reads:

A bona tide effort to agree vtlth the owner
of the land as to the compensation to be
paid for the tract, or Interest therein
sought to be acquired, must be shown to
confer Jurisdiction upon the court In con
demnation proceedings. This effort must
be directed to the specific tract of land, and
the specific Interest therein described In the
petition, which is sought to be condemned.
Use of Lands.
The tract of tend described In the peU
tlon In this case (No. 23153) corresponds
with the land described In the letter to the
defendant realty company, dated February
L 1902, making an offer for same.
The petition alleges as the term of years
which the plaintiff seeks to acquire In the
property, a term ending Starch 1, 1304, but
the proof shows negotiations for a term of
years ending February 1. 1934.
The preliminary effort to agree should bs
had with reference to the term which Is set
out In the petition.
The specific nature of the use to which
the lands are to be devoted should also be
disclosed In the negotiations and stated In
the petition.

Lewis In his work of Eminent Domain
says: The petition should show the use
or purpose for which the property Is dc
rired, and that It Is within the statutory
power conferred. It should show a clear
right to condemn the property described.
Accordingly, It must not only show that the
property Is wanted for public use, but inust
also Bhow that It Is a use that Is within
the particular statute under which the pro
ceeding Is had.

If the land Is to be covered with buildings
or railroad tracks, converted Into a lake or
used as a Mexican horticultural garden. It
Is manifest that the just compensation re
quired by law will vary in each Instance,
and as the decree can only provide for a
money payment and cannot require the
plaintiff to enter Into bond to restore the
property to the same condition In which it
was taken; and. furthermore, as tho prop
erty can only be used for the purposes for
which It Is condemned, the necessity for de
claring under the World's Fair statute the
particular use to bo made is manifest.
It was not necessary that an effort to
argue should have been made with the
trustees and que trust defendants In this
caBe. They are not owners of tho land with
in the meaning of the condemnation statute
and have no power to treat for or convey
an estato for years in the property sought
to be acquired by the plaintiff.
For the reasons stated In points 2 and 3

ly fond of flowers and Mr. Hllleary will
see to It that her taste in this particular
Is gratified.
Comtesse Expresses Her Delight.
The Comtesse, in relating her impres
sions of this country, said to-day:
"I am delighted with everything that
sums all up. The first thing that really lm- !
pressed me was the entrance to New York.
We have a little statue of Liberty In Palis,
but I had no idea that the real statue was
so big and so Imposing. The Statue of
Liberty was my first Impression; It was a
good one, and It has lasted."
"As for tall buildings, I am not of a suffi
ciently engineer'nc mind to appreciate them.
I look at them with my eyes only, not with
my understanding. I am only a woman,
and women like flowers, laces and dainty
things. If I were a man I suppose I would
enthuse more about them than I do. As It
Is, they frighten me; they are wonderful
and terrible, but not pretty. I prefer pretty
things. I was perfectly enchanted with
Washington. I think it is the most beauti
ful city I have ever seen."
The Comtesse looked wonderingly at her
Interviewer, when he asked her what her
Impression of the taste in dress of the
American women was. She looked down
upon her fluffy pearl-gray costume Before
replying, as If to assure herself that noth-
i& was amiss, anu men said

London, June 2. The announcement oj
peace In South Africa was celebrated fit
London to-night with a mild repetition of
the Mnfeklng celebration.
Hundieils of thousands of peop'e surged
through the streets of London from Wblte-
chapel to Buckingham Palace, but never at
any time did the crowds equal thosa which
ereeated the verb, "to Mnfeklng."
Women, carrjlng babies, boys, drunken
loafern and others, glad of any excuse to
defy the law and -order, were the principal
elements In the ragged processions passing
through the principal streets.
Women jabbed men In the faces with
feathers, flung an apology for confetti, and
In turn were hugged and kissed by any man
who found time for such a diversion. A f ew
helpless policemen stood around and
watched the fun.
A very serious undercurrent of discontent
probably Is responsible for the fact that
London has not shown the same evidence
of rejoicing as were to be seen on Mafeklng
In some quarters tho comment on this
"peace-with-honor" ending of the war was
that "Great Rritaln has the peace and the
Bors have all the honor."
Tha Liberal members of the House of
Commons declared freely to-night that
peace In South Africa might have been
secured a year earlier and upon better
terms had not the British Government been
s0 obdurate.
A curious feature of the night's street
scenes was that banners were carried in
several processions bearing the Inscription.
"Brave Buller." Not a cab or a carriage
cr bus that was driven through the streets
to-night but was decorated with flags or
some other sign of rejoicing.
At the hlght of the rejoicing s hearse
passed through Piccadilly and even the un
dertaker's! assistants, who are known as
mutes, waived Union Jacks.
