.UC'IOHKKIU, A lata eastern tiispatcli utaWs tliat six million dollars have been already sub icribed in Chicago for tbo World' fair of 1S02. Meantime' New York l.iu been talking, that is her talkers Lave been ghoul ing that there is no place aa good as New York in which to hold the World' fair. So the thing wilt go on until New York shall be no longer a factor in the question of locality for this immense un dertaking. Truly there are many reas ons why New York should be the chosen place. Tho fact that it is the metropolis, its coMi.r;i"!itan character, its situation, surrounded as it is by magnificent wat ers, larijc tiuniber of hotels and general adaption to the handling of immense thrones of atrangera, are all in its favtr. Another fact which ought to be considered j that the New Yorkers, inhabitants of the m tropoiis, would uot be bo apt to make a business of robbing their guests by extortion as would the inhabitants of an inland city like Chicngo which must always partake more or less of the char acter of a country town, no matter if it bad ten million inhabitants. This mat ter of extortionate prices for entertain ment is a very serious one, viewed with regard to the impression we may make upon guests, and that is the most im portant view that can be taken of the whole matter. According to accounts brought from the last national Republi can convention, held in Chicago, those who should have been publio entertain er in that town became simpiy public robbers. It was difficult to obtain de cent food, or any lodging, and the prices charged made it out AT the question for any but wealthy men to remain a week without seriously injuring their financial status. If the city by the lake has the world's fair, and again overcharges in proportion to the crowd that will be there, a single day's attendance w ill de plete the purse of a man of ordinary means and send him home penniless, while the wealthy European will become a captive for debt and be compelled to await a ransom from home. But New York will probably lose the exhibition just the came; because New Yorkers are so much in the habit of hav ing everything their own way . that they will not make a special effort to have the exhibition held there. New York has apparently become indifferent to publio favors, and will let the prize slip away, while Chicago will make a great and perhaps successful effort to obtain it. Yet it is by no mean certain that Chi cago is to have her own way in this mat ter. The same artificial causes of pros perity that built her up are building np other towns further west, and when the final struggle comes, in congress, Chicago may find herself in the novel situation of being "left." Still her citizens who sub seribe six million dollars toward the enterprise, while those of the other eities sleep, will have no cause to regret for a lack of activity. They have in them the true spirit of progress which ought to be cherished by every man in every live town. 1 U1ANTH AND DWARK.' . The Great Orestes was 11J feet tall.
