-k- IFIGHT FOE THE FAIR. V The Great Debate Finally Inaugurated in the lower House. CLAIMS OF THE FOUR CITIES n v lllj Yolced by Their Eespectlve Chsaaplons on the Floor. "jt HILL SIGNS THE HEW IORK MEABUEE In Ens ti Creata a Dlrerdra Is Tun oT toe Eutern Metropolis. The debate spon the "World! Fair bill f commenced in Congress yesterday. BepresentatiTe Flonrer opened in behalf of - 2Tew York, and was followed by the ad herents of Chicago, St. Louis and "Washing ton. A Tote will probably not be reached before Monday. tSrXCUX.TZUQBJX TO TEX DISrj.TCn.1 'Wjlshikgtok', February 20. The House has at last taken up the World's Fair ques tion, and there is some probability that a decision will be reached upon it within a week. The whole of to-day's session was deToted to the hearing of arguments in favor of the different sites. The vopular interest in the subject was well evidenced by the crowded galleries, every seat being occupied during the entire session. "When the interest in the speeches being delivered on the floor flagged a little, visitors turned to watch the flying fingers of four New England ladies occupying the Speaker's reserved seat, who had brought tbeir knitting with them, so as not to lose time. Consequently, there was always something going on to amuse, and one of the visitors declared that she had never at tended so interesting a session of the Honse before. Of the speeches, some were good, some bad and many indifferent. JL VOTE ON MONDAY. To-morrow, and probably Saturday, the debate will continue, and on Monday the vote will be taken. As the roll is called, each member will declare bis preference by naming the city he desires to vote for. It may take only the one roll call to settle the matter, and then the House will vote on the qnestion. Shall a "World's Fair be held iu 1892? Upon that point, it is likely that there will be some lively talking, and the issue is held to be in doubt To-day Mr. Hills, of Texas, demanded half of the time in behalf of the opponents of the bill. The Speaker said that in the absence of an arrangement the matter of recognitions was one for the presiding offi cer. Mr. Mills said that the presiding officer should, in fairness, recognize the opponents of the bills during half of the time. The Speaker replied that no donbt the expectations of the gentleman wonld be realized so far as they were in accordance with the views of the Chair. The Chairman of the committee, Mr. Candler, took the floor and opened the de bate. He said that the country conld be proud of the rivalry between the four cities. They were working for local interests: but they were also animated by a spirit ot patriotism. The fair itself would be an honor to the United States wherever held; each of the four cities wonld do its best. The committee had presented two bills one adapted to New York, Chicago and St Louis, and the other to "Washington. ITBST GUN FOB 1TEW TOBK. Representative Flower opened in behalf of New York. He said: lam for New York because I believe sneh & selection means the createstlposslble success In this undertaking and because of tier great adrantages, and its proposition set forth a veii-mgestea plan lor practical operation, which would not, as a visionary scheme sprung up in a nightfall to pieces upon the test of demonstration, for it was founded upon prin ciples of business suggested by men of Dull ness. New York would assume the responsi bility ta make it a success. The site was ready for use now. It contains 309 acres, while the Paris Exposition contained only 250 acres. Had any other city met this question of site and solved It? No: others had only attempted the financial problem, and would ask for a large appropriation. In Chicago, St. Louis and Washington this problem of site was still in the clonds or the mua. New York was the half-way station between the greater part of this country and the world, and through it comes and goes nearly 70 per cent of onr ex ports and imports. Her commercial position, therefore, would give the United States, tbrongh this fair, an impetus it would receive from no other city. The American manufacturer and agricultur ist would have a greater incentive to exhibit his wares and prodncts in New York City than he would In any other by reason of tbe fact that be will have a larger local assemblage to be instructed and benefited, and by reason of the further fact that his goods would be thrown into comparison with the wares and prodncts in tbe great commercial exchange of tbe con tinent As this was to be an international ex hibition, largely dependent for its succer upon the acceptance by foreign nations of the invi tation to participate In it it behooves us to nse due care in affording foreign exhibitors sneh facilities as may bring within ths reach of all tbe opportunity to take part in it witbont sub jecting them to unnecessary expene,delay and liability to damage to their exhibits GOVEBKOE HILL tS LINE. In conclusion he said: "We offer New York for just what it is. "We do not wish to detract from Chicago or St Louis, or any other western city, for we know that the growth and prosperity of any part north, south, east or west, of this great American Republic. Just here," said Mr. Flower, hold ing up a telegram, "I am informed that Governor 'Hill has signed the Fair bill. (Applause.) Mr. Flower was followed by Mr. Moore, ofNew Hampshire, and Messrs. Covert, Cummings, Tracy and Quinn, all of New York, in favor of the selection or New York as tbe site. Mr. Hull, of Illinois, was tbe first speaker in behalf of Chicago. He said: Chicago is the great interior city, the great center of the United States being a short dis tance southeast of tbe city. It surpassed any otter place in facilities of travel and ability to care for the people. Tbe hotels were on an enormons scale, and had never been overtaxed. One bad been opened last fall that was monu mental, and how many more would come de pended only on tbe energy of Chicago. Her car lines and steamers could handle thousands ot people. The city was accessible to the mining regions ot Pennsylvania and the great agricultural belts of the West Commerce was there carried on in the grandest scale by land and water. Her tonnage was the second in size among American countries. ONE OP THE POINTS. A foreigner would not stop at the gate of the Republic and turn back, at he wonld If tbe fair were to be held at New York. He wonld go and see tbe Mississippi Valley, and tbe grand opulence of the great interior. Tbe site at Chicago was all Teady: the lands level and no preparation was required. It would leave a great emptr space in tbe treasury after New York had blasted away rocks enough to afford a site. Placed in tbe interior tbe fair would be visited by many more people than if it were placed at tidewater. The people of Chicago were enthusiastic: they were not bickering among themselves; they stood united to mate the lair a success. What proportion of tbe attendance at the fair would be composed of foreign visitors! Perhaps 160,000 at most He expected 15.000,000 Americans to attend the fair. Would It be proper to require 7,000,000 people to travel to tbe extreme edge of tbe country as they would have to do It the fair were held in New York: Mr. Creary, of Kentucky, earnestly argued id favor of Chicago, saying the three great est national celebrations ever held in this country had been held iu the Fast, and it was now the turn of the "West. He urged that tbe fair should not be held on the rim of the country, but in the interior. Mr. Taylor, of Illinois, said there was a great country in the West of which the people knew little, and he desired a fair in the West to educate the people of New York. For years the "West had been the cow from which New York had drawn milk; it was time that she should receive some benefits in return. He concluded by telling of tbe wealth of the coiintry sur rounding Chicago, stnd the patronage which codld expected .to be bestowed upon a fair held there. A HIT AT CHICAGO. Mr. Frank, of Missouri, opened the "battle for St Louis. Tbe site for the fair, he said, was to be chosen upon sound reasons. If missionary education was the object Chi cago was the place. In a historical com memoration like this, he wanted no political manager to locate the site according to what he thought were proper considerations. Chicago vied with New York in political animus, supplemented by sordid mercenary aims. St Louis offered the advantages of loca tion and was accessible to the greatest num ber of citizens of the United States and the Southern Republics. Foreign goods could be unloaded on the levees of New Orleans with less confusion than at New York. St Louis, in a spirit of lofty ambition, asked Congress to award her the fair. Her hospi tality was known the world over; her cli mate was excellent; she would bid the world welcome to a nursery of virtue, not a morass of vice. Mr. Niedrinehans, of Missouri, extolled the talents of the business men of St Louis. He said that he had there been able to start and carry on a business that had not an equal in" the world. Mr. Breckinridge, of Arkansas, followed in the same line, touch ing upon tbe transportation facilities afforded by tbe Mississippi river, with its tributaries, and the great railway systems. THE CLAIMS OF "WASHINGTON. Mr. McComas, of Maryland, was for an exposition wherever it was to be held. But it was historically fitting that the Exposi tion should be held here in Washington, in the District bearing the name of tbe discov erer of the continent Heinvoked the mem bers to seek some higher motive and broader ground than locality. He appealed to tbe friends of Chicago, New York and St. Louis to come together in peace here, on national ground. Messrs. Lee, of Virginia; Coleman, of Louisiana; Compton and Stockbridge, of Maryland, also spoke in favor of "Washing ton, and then the House adjourned until to morrow. Tbe proposed night session was abandoned. A C0BFDSED WITNESS. O'Oonnell Brcemei Very Mueh Mixed on Cross-Exnmlnntlon. Chicago, February 20. In the Cronin jury bribing case this morning the Court in structed the jury to return a verdict of not guilty as to Thomas Kavanaugh and he was discharged. This left Jeremiah O'Donnell the only defendant He went on the stand and made explicit denial of offering a bribe or attempting in any way to get a corrupt jnrvman accepted In tbe case. On cross-examination he became confused and could not remember that he had made certain damaging admissions to the State's Attorney when first arrested. On redirect examination it was brought out that O'Donnell had no sleep the night or day before the inquisition in Judge Longenecker's office and having also had nothing to eat for 12 hours, was sick and ex cited, After evidence pro and con as to the cred ibility of "Witness Hoagland court adjourned till to-morrow. FLAGS FdR SCHOOL BUILDINGS. The Edneational Conference Piuses n Reso lution Approvlnalhe Ptnn. NewYobk, February 20. At the Edu cational Conference here to-day a resolution w&s5ntrodnced by ex-President "William F. Sheldon declaring that the association re garded the public school system as the chief source ot civilization and the bulwaik of civil and religious liberty. That they ap proved of placing the. American flag over schoolhouses and rrcommended the study of the Declaration of Independence and other historical American papers. That they could meet hostile criticism and make the public schools the allies of home, and be come sources of the highest moral instruc tion without any sectarian bias. Tbe mem bers pledged themselves to do all in their power to establish the system in all sections ol the iiepublic and inase intelligence and loyalty a blessing. The resolution was passed unanimously. COAL MEN IK CONFERENCE. The Advisability of Pormlpe sin Agreement With Ore Dealers Discussed. Chicago, February 20. A number of well known coal men met at the Grand Pacific to-day to confer concerning Lake Superior transportation sales. A. G. Gates, of "Rochester, N.Y., presided. They dis cussed the advisability of forming some sort of an agreement with the iron and copper ore dealers so that boats might come from Lake Superior to Chicago laden with ore and return with coal. Most of the coal dealers were of the opin ion that money could be saved by nnloadipg in Chicago and shipping on the lake to all Lake Superior points. A proposition will undoubtedly be made to the ore men. On Her War to tbe Lepers. Chicago, February 20 Sister Rose Gertrude, f the Order Of St Dominio, ar rived in Chicago last night on her way to the Sandwich Islands where she is to devote her life to the service of the lepers at Kalawo. Miss Fowler goes from here direct to San Francisco, there to sail next week for Honolulu. Fonr Children Burned to Death. Kingston, Canada, February 20. Last night fire destroyed the residence of John Liston, and before rescuers could get into tbe building four children Theresa, "Willie, Cecilia and John, aged from 4 to 12 vears were burned to death. Mr. and Mrs. Liston were badly burned, but saved their lives by jumping. BInrring-e XJceuei Qrmated Yesterday. Tfm ' fceildMes. Ednr B.
