STATE COMMISSION LETS GREGG OUT, Missouri World's Fair Officials Declare Appropriation for Min ting Exhibit Sufficient. INDOOR DISPLAY IMPORTANT. Successor to the Position of Su perintendent of Mines and Metallurgy to Be Ap pointed To-Day. The Missouri World's Fair Commission yesterday declared vacant the position of Superintendent of the Department of Mines and Metallurgy, formerly held by Colonel H.Tt. Gregg of Joplin. The action was taken becnuse of a disagreement be tween Colonel Gregg nnd the Commission as to tho appropriation for his depart ment. It was reported that Colonel Gregg did not believe $20,000, which amount the Com mission had appropriated for Its outside mining display, was enough to build the exhibit and show tho things it was de signed to feature. Ho had planned to nave living exhibits, which could not have been Installed for less than $33,000. The Commission, on the other hand, wished tho major portion of Its mining and metallurgy exhibit indoors, alongside the exhibits of other States, with which It would compete for honors and awards. No other State will be judged by Us out door exhibit. Regarding tho matter, the Commission issued the following state ment: "There has not been an insufficient ap propriation for the exhibit of Missouri's mineral resources. It is the purpose of the co,mnisslon to make an adequate display of tho metallic and nonmetallic resources. such as coal, lead, zinc, iron, building stone, sand, cement, clay and ever thing else classed as a mineral exhibit. INDOOR DISPLAY. "This will be placed In the Mines and Metallurgy building, and will be in compe tition with tho mineral exhibits of other States. Upon this display wo intend, and have Intended from tho start, to expend i5,OD0, which amount we are informed by experts is ample for the purpose. "For the outside mining display, which does not come Into competitlan with the mining exhibits of other States, and which Is Intended to show mining processes as they apply to lead and zinc, it was agreed at the October meeting of the commission to set apart $20,000, It was not intended that this exhibit should detract from tho indoor exhibit." The commission nolds that the indoor display Is Important as a means ot ad vertising tho State's mineral resources by specimens. These will be arranged In cases, and In the regular classified forms usually seen at expositions There will be mousanas or such specimens In the build ing, from all parts of the United States and abroad. The outdoor exhibit will show mining in a manner more attractive to the general public It will consist of a mine in oper ation: also a reflnining plant and smeltine furnace, where the ore is reduced and melted. The exhibit will show Improved methods or timbering, modern machinery and all the features of an up-to-date mine. Persons who advocate the outdoor dis play say It will attract more attenUon to .Missouri mining man any dead exhibit possibly could. It would interest both mining men and the general public. Man ufacturers and mining men throughout the State havo offered to contribute freo tho materials required for the exhibitor. It was announced that the commission had decided upon Colonel Gregg's suc cessor, and that tho appointment would be announced to-day. i MURAL PAnTMGS OX CAXVAS.
