May Wheat Has Ffraipht Climb of Three Cents in Chir.ipo. REPUBLIC FPrU'.I. Chicago. III. Aig 13 Not since the re cent excitement In wheat began was there more of a surprise for the trade than to dav. Every effort had been made by the leaders to calm the feelings of former excited bujers. All houses advised custo mers to get out of holdings ai.d go slow. There was bar feeling In the air. But all bear efforts were like attempts to dam the natural course, of a stream. Every time the trade calls a halt the mar ket gathers force and breaks anas again. September wheat sold at J1.W-. under bear prnuaUoa at the opening. It sold at $1.03. with bull eicltement Ju3t before the close. The 31ay price, which repre sents more decidedly the outcome of the Northwest crop, sold at Jl.OI'r. and had a straight climb of Z c:nts to tl.Oi' at the last.

Roth sides hive appealed lo the Exposition nnnase mem as the party of the third part. The casus belli, which promises to bring on lnternatloi al complications, arises over the presence of Jspanese tea girls In the tea pivillonH on the Japanese reser vation The Pike concession makes the demand of the Exposition management that th'.se girls be deported from the Fair grounds and that a strict poltcv of ex clusion be maintained toward anv Japa ne girls except those having their' habi tat on the Pike This demand is made on the ground that under Its contract with the Exposition management the Fair Japanese concession ha the scle and exclusive right to employ .lnpanee tea or Geisha girls on the entire Exposition site The managers are stand ing on this exclusive right, and wish the Exposition to support them The officials of the Exposition according lo the statement of an official ot the Japanese Commission, are supporting the eoncosIon, a a request has been made of the commission by the Exposition man agement that thev withdraw the sixteen native girls who are now serving tea In the two teahouses on the reservation of the Japanese Government at the Fair. DOES NOT FLAN TO TIELD. The commission, however, does not pro pose to accede to this rnquest without making a fight. Tetterda's long com munication was forwarded bv Commis sioner General Eellchl Tegtma to President Francis. In which a vigorous protest was made Rgalnst the request.

Director of Concessions Gregg answered all questions relntlve to the matter wl'h the statement that It would net be right for him to sav anything about the mat ter One of the Japanese Commissioners, however stated the contention of the commission In the case. He siid: "When we were Invited lo participate and je. cepltti. we requested that the Etpcsitinn management notifv ns when anv Janan ee show or concession nt the Fa'r nas contemplated or to be let. We were a'so given to understand that th itall of our participation in the Fair would be lelt to our e'ommlsioner General "We were neve- notified of the letting of the Fair Japan concession, and conse. quenth went ahead to arrange to shox as a part of our national life, ard for the exploitation nf our great tia Indust'lc". two typical Jspanese teahouses Gieat care was taken in the selection of girls to serve tea to obtain onlv the most re spectable and leflned girls, and most of them are the daughters of educated and respectable parents.

Otis Humphrey to-day overruled the motion lo dissolve the Injuctlon which was is sued seversl das ago to restrain the miners and their organization from Inter fering with the operation of the Letter mines at Zelgler. Judge Humphrey's decision was handed down orally and overruled every conten tion advanced by the counsel for the miners. "This restralnlrg order has been made plain and clear in its terms," he declared. ' Tho man who wants to work must he permitted to do so. The people v.ho own this property must be permitted to control It. The men v.ho operate this coal mine must be permitted to say what disposition thev will make of its products This is the supreme law of the land, and any ether ccntertlon Is nonsen.se." The court declined to Issue an Injunction restraining the mining company from Im porting laborers, saving the remedy for such an offense Is the Infliction of fines In the court.
