Chicago if She Desires to Hold the World's Fair. A New York Bill Ready to Be Presented to the Senate In Case thn Windy City Doe. Not Re pond Properly The Renewal of an Issue Would Probably Result In Killing the Fair Trujeut as a National Affair. Depew'. Opinion of Chicago. Washington, March 7. The sub-com mittee on the world's fair, composed of Messrs. Candler, Hitt and Springer, ap pointed to report amendments to the bill to be reported to the house, have done nothing yet. Mr. Candler said Wednes day they were waiting to hear from Chi cago what legislation is desired. From Chicago members it is learned that the delay in that city 13 occasioned by the necessity for organization to se lect proper representatives to send be fore the congressional committee. This cannot be fully effected before Tuesday next, until when nothing can be done. A New York Senate Bill. In the meantime Senator Hiscock is preparing a bill for the senate, which, while not expected to mention New York is understood to have the interests of that city in view, in case of the fail ure of Chicago to respond properly. What an Issue Would Cause. An issue between these two cities, if raised again, will in all probability re sult in killing the fair project as a Na tional all air. Can't Count on Government Aid. The Chicago people are being advised that they cannot count upon any gov ernment aid except for the government exhibit. DEPEvV TALKS. He Thinks the Chances for Any Fair at All Aro Very 811m. New York, March 7. Chauncey M. Depew is still in a great state of excite ment in regard to the world's fair. He does not seem to think that Chicago will make a success of the great exposition, in fact he does not believe that there will be a fair at all. lie is quoted as having eaid: , "I do not think that the people of Chi cago will be able to raise the money that they require. I do not think they can getthe sum together or that thev will do it. It seems as if they had all along de pended and were now depemting upon congress to help them out. This, judg ing from my own impressions while in Washington, congress will not do. The feeling in the senate and in the house is againHt appropriating any large sum of money for an international exhibition in 1893. ' Congress is willing to give a small sum for a National exhibit, but the city getting the fair will have to stand the principal expense of it. The upshot of the whole matter is that as things look now I think there is a very slim chance of there being any world's fair in the United States in lSilli, either in Chicago, New York or anywhere else. I sincerely hope that the legislature of the state of New York will vote to appropriate a sufficient Bum for the erection of permanent fair buildings in this city and that the work of erecting them will begin at once. If the buildings are put up. I can promise that an exhibition company will be es tablished here that will give at regular intervals creditable fairs in New York similar to the crystal palace exhibitions in England. This will be a great benefit not only to New York, but to this entire section of the country, and will, per haps, after all be better for us, and more conducive to our permanent prosperity than a world's fair in 189a." LARD AND COTTONSEED OIL. Strong lVoteat from Georgia Against Branding the Latter. Washington, March 7. The house committee on agriculture set apart its session Wednesday to hear members of congress who desired to speak upon the bills pending before the committee to regulate the manufacture and sale of compound lard, ltepresentative Stewart, of Georgia, prefaced his remarks by reading a letter from Atlanta, Ga., March II, saying: "Mr. Hatch has no authority to say that the Alliance in Georgia wants such a bill passed as you speak of. Of course it would ruin the oil-mill industry in the south and damage us about twenty-eight millions annually. It would reduce the price of cotton seed and raise the price of lard, so as to work a great hardship to our poor people. You can rest assured that Georgia wants no such measure passed." The letter is signed "Wm. L. Peck, President Farmers' Alliance Exchange of Georgia." In answer to questions by several memlers of the committee, Mr. Stewart said that if compound lard was deleteri ous to health- a fraud in any way then he would be in favor of branding it as such and punishing those who sell it. "But," said Mr. Stewart, "I do not un derstand that any such tiring is claimed here. It is a fight, as I understand it, between lard and cotton-seed oil, and scientists say one is just as wholesome as the other, if one is to Ik branded, then brand the other and tax them alike." In conclusion Mr. Stewart said that if the use ot cotton-seed oil was abolished by the passage of the proposed bill, it would compel the southern farmer to go back to the situation of twenty-five years ago, when cotton-seed was used only as a fertilizer or thrown away. Gen. Joseph Wheeler, of Alabama, eaid that the second section of the Conger bill was enough to damn it among his people. (That section defines compound lard, and prohibits its manufacture or sale except under the provisions of the bill.) If there were any fraud in the matter of the sale of the lard compound, some power which has the riirht ought to regulate it. and that right lie believed rested in the Mates.

A m BKE That is Proposed Between New York and Jersey City. The Piane Contemplate a Span 3,000 Feet Long. The Cabteg to Support It to Be Four Feet in Diameter Bridge Engineer Lindenthal Appears Before the House Committee on Commerce In Behalf oi tbe Bill Will Cost 16,000,000. Washington, March 7. The house committee on commerce has received a communication from Gen. Casey, chief of engineers, concerning the proposed bridge across the North river, between New "Xork and Jersey City. The com munication is in answer to a letter from the commerce committee asking for sug gestions concerning the plans for the bridge. In it Gen. Casey tells that the height of the bridge in the center should be 155 feet instead of 145 feet as contem plated, and that the plans should be sub mitted iu one year and the work com menced next year. Gustav Lindenthal, the well known bridge engineer, Wednesday appeared before the sub-committee of the com mittee on commerce in charge of the bill, and argued aeainst the adoption of the suggestions from the war depart ment. Mr. lindenthal said that to raise the central height of the bridge to 15,1 feet would be impracticable because the grade would be too great. The height of the Brooklyn bridge, he said, was 135 feet. Concerning the time suggested by the war department for submitting plain and beginning work, Mr. Lindenthal said that this also was an impracticable suggestion. The company would have to onrain property valued at $ao,oK),0t)0. This would probably cause a long fight in the courts, and would delay the com mencement of work. It wouid also take a long time to get up the castings, and Mr. Lindenthal said that the company wanted three years to commence work with an exteusion of two years more if necessary. The plans for the bridge contemplate a structure with a span of 8,000 feet. It will have ten tracks. The cost for the bridge proper, exclusive of the an proaches and the $20,000,000 for tlw property that would have to be nur chased, will be $16,000,000. The cables to support the bridge are to be four feet in diameter. THE SMITH-SLUSH ER FEUD. Opposing Factions Fight in the Itarbour- vtllc Court House Yard. Harbourville, Ky., March 7.

The party boarded the evening train for Flat Lick, and while at the depot tnrew cartnages in the waiting room stove. When asked bv the station agent to desist three of them drew bowie knives and carved up the stovepipe. Emigration and capitalists are fast taking advantage of Barbourville's beautiful lo cations and great mineral wealth, and these outrages will soon be a thing of the past. Barbourvillo is coming to the front fast. It is the largest and most prosper ous town in this part of the state. A wealthy syndicate of eastern capitalists has purchased 500 acres of coal land in and adjoining the town. A corps of twenty civil engineers are laying out and platting tho town. A contractor has 500 laborers macadamizing the streets, putting up electric light wires and different kinds of manufacturing plants. Progress has struck the country and the deadly Winchester must go. ANOTHER BATTLE IN AFRICA. The French Again Defeat the King of Dahomey Many Killed. Paris, March 7. The Soleil re ceived news of another battle having been fought between the French troops and those of the King of Dahomey. A number of the participants on both sides were killed and many wounded. The Dahoniians succeeded in capturing a number of Frenchmen and other Eu ropeans. Further advices from the scene of the conllict say that after the first engage ment between the French and Daho mians, the latter made a second attack upon Kotonon.

A special to The World from Atoka, I. T., says: The laws of the Choctaw nation, as passed by the Choctaw legislature, were made public ednesday. One of the laws provides for the establishment of a lot tery, a certain percentage of the receipts going to the state treasury. It thus seems that the Louisiana Lot tery company has obtained a footing in Indian Territory, and that it obtained the foothold while all eyes were turned on North Dakota. The North Dakota Investigation. New York, March 7. A special to The World from Bismarck, N. Dak., says: There was a lively time in the sen ate Monday. The lftttery bribery investi gation committee lias frequently called on the attorney general for opinions as to the methods of proceedure. That official is not in sympathy with the in quiry, and sent a long communication declaring the senate had no right to in vestigate rumors. Senator Lamoure interrupted and moved that further reading "of that stuff" be dispensed with which was adopted. Lamoure then censured the attorney general for his lack of legal knowledge and said the rumors must be traced down. The minority report on the bill provid ing that non-resident publishers of news papers which circulate in North Dakota shall appoint an agent upon whom pro cess shall be served, was taken up. The report assert that the bill was prepared in order to punish newspapers that hail aided in tne defeat of the lottery bill, and that these outside papers saved the honor of the state. A lively debate ensued and it finally ended in the adoption of a vote of ceu Bure on Messrs. Dodds and Burrows, who prepared the report, and the deposition of Mr. Dodds from the office of president pro tern. I ONLY MORMONS OBJECT To the Admission of Idaho Territory to Statehood. Washington, March 7. The house committee on territories has completed its report on the bill to admit Idaho into the Union, and it will soon be presented to the house. The only opposition to the admission oi Idaho under the constitu tion, which the legal voters of the territory adopted unanimously, came irom the Mormons. - They protested, says the report, because of a section in the constitution which disfranchised persons practicing or preaching bigamy or polygamy. During the discussion be fore the committee in reirard to the legality of this clause, Justice F'ield, of the United States supremo court, deliv ered the opinion of tne court, affirming tne constitutionality of this clause. The report concludes: There is nothing in me statute or uio clause in me con stitution which disbars a trood citizen, or one entitled toi the f ranchine, from exer cising political privileges. If the Mor mons or any other persons belong to an organization which teaches and encour ages acts defined by law to be crimes. they should not be- intrusted with the franchise. Whenever the Mormon church abandons its advocacy and prac tice of polygamy and bieamv. there is nothing in this clause to prevent its members from voting. The Mormon question has been a troublesome one for years, and has been a standing disgrace to our government. The results show that this statute of Idaho litis done more to discouiage polygamy and bigamy among the Idaho Mormons than all other legislation combined. . The evils of Mormonisni had become so great iu that territory that all the non- Mormons, regardless of party, unified in strongly urging this legislation. It is be lieved by ttie committee that in Idaho at least, they will place themselves in ac cord with American institutions and sentiments in order to enjoy the privileges of American citizens. The report is being held back until a minority report, which, it is understood. Representatives Springer and Mansur will prepare, opposing the passage of the bill, can be drawn up. It is said they favor an omnibus bill that will provide for the admission of Idaho and other territories at one time. NAVAL SCANDAL. Captain Howell Demands Satisfaction oi Admiral Walker Whom He Reports. New York, March 7. The Brooklyn Eagle s Washington special says: Capt. John A. Howell, of the Atlanta, has "re ported Admiral Walker to the navy. "Reported" in naval parlance means that ho has complained of his superior's ac tion, and demanded satisfaction by a court of inquiry or otherwiso, in a man ner to bo decided by the secretary. A private letter from the Sipiadron gives the cause of the trouble. When the fleet was sailing out, of tho Port Toulon every one was astonished to see the signals hoisted on the flagship ordering the commanding officer oi the Atlanta under arrest, and directing the executive officer, Lieutenant Commander Condon to take command. It seems that for some reason or other the Atlanta had gone out of her course and broken up the sailing formation. Without giving her commander any opportunity for explan ation, he was publicly degraded before the whole fleet. Naval officers declare such a proceed ing unprecedented, and claim that Capt. Howell was evidejitly not to blame for the supposed mismanagement of the Bhip, as shown by the fact, that he has since been reinstated in command. It is significant that Howell was about the only officer in the fleet who was not se lected for duty by Walker, and it is saiJ that the relations between thp two have never been cordial. Sunday Law Opposition. Washington, March 7. Senator Stockbridge presented Wednesday two immense -packages of reinonftrances against the passage of any bill in regard to the oliservanco of the Sabbath, or Lord's day, or any other religious or ecclesiastical institut ion or rite; against the adoption of any resolution for the amendment of the National constitution that would iu , any way give preference to the principle of any reliirion above another, or that will in any war sanction legislation upon the subject of relicion. These remonstrances contain the indi vidual signatures of uIH,;ji7 citizens fiotn different states and territories as follows: Michigan, 41.447: Minnesota. 22.8M0: Wisconsin, i0.7.ri0; Kansas, 30,075: Cali fornia, 20,4?: Ohio, 19,:i;0. t onnty Treasurer's Office Robbed. Wadash, Ind., March 7. The Wabash county treasury was robbed at noon Wednesday by sneak thieves, who burst open the monoy drawer while Treasurer Chin worth was at dinner.

The Conservative Press Finds Itself in a Quandary, While the Liberals Are Doubtful of the Emperor's Sincerity A Reduction of Hoars in the Imperial Arteual Causes Hoa-l from Manufacturer and Mine Owners Foreign Mews. London, March 7. The emperor's lata words and action have puzzled alike the German Liberal and Conservative press. The latter has always beeu conducted -upon the principle that tho king can do no wrong, but it finds it a difficult tank to support with any heartiness the in novations which the emperor proposes to make and thus stultify all its post records. Doubt His Sincerity. Liberal journals as well as Liberal politicians are very doubtful of Wil liam's sincerity, and wonld be very slightly surprised to see him take up some other hobby and leave the work ingman as severely alone as his prede cessors huve done. Reduction of Working Ho One practical boon to the v rking man has just been granted by the reduc tion of the hours of labor in the imper ial arsenal from twelve to ten. But this concession has caused a great outcry from manufacturers and mine owners who are aware that their precedent will cause a demand from their workmen for a similar reduction of hours as well as an increase of wages. Predicts Ruin. The Kreuz Zettung says the mischief worked by allowing workmen additional time to spend in drinking and discussing affairs above their comprehension will be simply incalculable, and it seems to bel ieve its words too. The inspired Westphalia Gazette sees nothing but ruin iu store for the coal mine owners, and it would not he strange if (hese predictions of disaster, repeated daily as they aro, should have an effect upon those surrounding the emperor if not upou the monarch him self. The landed proprietors and cap italists are furious at the proposition to tax incomes at an accelerating rate. Hut, as The Vossische Zeitung points out, thty will soon, if the measure be comes a practical one, learn to reim burse themselves from tenantry and workmen. Trouble In Transvaal. London, March 7. Dispatches from the South African republic eny that a seri.ius dpmonstrai'ion hhs beeu mudd" there ugaiust the existing government. It appears that Mr. Kruger, the presi dent of the Transvaal, attempted to make a public speech, but the crowd refused to liBton to him, and he was compelled to retire. A mass meeting was then organ ized, and resolutions were adopted de nouncing the Transvaal government. After the meeting the crowd proceeded to the government buildiugs and tore down the flag of tho republic. Subse quently a mob went to a house at I.and drost, where Mr. Kruger was receiving a deputation, and sang "Rulo Uritannin." The railings around the house was puiied down and trampled underfoot by the ex cited people. Young Lincoln's Funeral. Lonpon, March 7. The ldy of young Abraham Lincoln will be temporarily placed in Kensal Oram cemetery with appropriate private ceremonies, but will ultimately bo brought to the United States. President Harrison has sent a message of condolence to Minister Lin coln. "It's all right," the dying boy is said to have told his muse, its she paled when she saw the death shadow on his face. The Prince of Wales has sent a letter of condolence to United States Minister Lincoln. Foreign Notes. Brazilian merchants ore boycotting British goods hi favor of American products. The Chinese government is massing troops in the Siberian frontier, as an early attack by Humid n forces is feared. Percy Tilgham, the American forger, got one year at Scarborough, England, for be ing too free with his chix-lu.
