Chicago, May 23. The women's part o
the Congress Auxiliary is over. For a
week the many halls of the Art Institute
have been packed each day with the fair
sex, the audiences being composed mostly
of women of middle age or heyoud, but
there being quite a sprinkling of fresh
young faces. These women have talked
and been talked to by the most noted of
their sisters in this time of notedwomeii,
and they have discussed every subject
from the right sort of costume to wear to
3rTF.. jsa nri.br: i;i;r.ixT.
the most complicated questions of sociol
ogy. It was a success in the best sense of
the word, and with the exception of the lit
tle un pleasantness in which Mesdatoes
tfcwall and Cougar were principals there
was nothing to mar the harmony of the
gathering. Mrs. Hew ill (who did not go
west; explained her nction in that matter
to all who had taken nart therein with en
tire satisfaction and w.os given a unani
mous vote of indorsement.
Closing Programme of the Congress.
The closing ewnis were of equal interest
with those preceding them. '-Organization
Among Women" was one of the chief sub
jects for discussion, and it was taken part
in by nearly all the eminent ladies present.
The ethics of dress was another, and social
purity was another, and they were thor
oughly discussed. The closing social event
was a banquet at the Kichclicu. I lie cards
were elegant, the menu delicious, the ar
rangement of the tables ingenious. The
invitations were necessarily .'imiled to
women of social distinction in various
fields. At the head of the president's table
sat Mrs. May Wright Sewall, her immedi
ate neighbors being the liaroness Kappe,
special commissioner from the crown and
cabinet, of Swc'leh; Mine. lSugelot.of France;
Mine. I'arren and M. I'arren," of ISreeee;
Mrs. l'.ertha llonore Ialmer, and Mrs.
Margaret 1'. Sullivan. Among those pres
ent were the vice president, Mrs. liagley,
Susan H. Anthony, Mrs. ltachel Foster
Avery, Mrs. Fen wick Millar (representa
tive of Lady Aberdeen), Mrs. llenrotin. Dr.
Sarah llackett Stevenson, and Dr. Julia
Holmes Smith, l'rofessor Sewall arrived
unexpectedly, and with a few other fortu
nate men was permitted to be present.
What Has Ileen Accomplished.
The question of what has been ac
complished is one that naturally
enlists the attention of the general
public as well as the partici
pants in the congress. May Wright
Sewall says the outcome of the congress
will be equality in opportunity for women,
and its result a bond of sympathy between
the women of different nations that wi d
make war impossible a very optimistic
view us long as long as human nature is
human nature.Susau 11. Anthony holds that
the congress etntered around the ques
tion of woman suffrage and equal political
rights. Martha Strickland, of Detroit,
thought the questions involving social -e-forms
lay nearest the hearts of the listen
ers and paid a tribute to ability shown by
the colored women present.
Next oil the I'rogrnmme.
The public press will have the hoards at
the institute this wtt-k. It is expected
that a number of the most prominent edi
tors in the country will be present. Ti e
formal opening will not take place until
T:4. p. m. today, but at p. m. a reception
began, when the president and officers of
the World's Congress Auxiliary, the presi
dent and vice president of the woman's
branch, together with the committees of
arrangements for the World's Public
Press Congresses, received in the offices of
President lfcmney, Hall I. The attendance
The Kditoriat Association.
The meeting of the EJitorial association
has closed. One of the last pieces of business
transacted was the election of a committee
to uwrite up" the visit. The committee
chosen is ns follown: H. P.. Herbert, F. P..
Street, T. W. Walton, J. U. Fletcher, and
Hugh A. Hossler. One of the last papers
read was a timely one by Charles N. Hew
itt, secretary of the state board of health,
Minnesota, on "The Kelatious of the Press
to the Public. Health." A pleasant featu re
of the closing session was the presentation
to President Price of a big diamond. Mr.
Price was taken aback, but managed to
gather himself together and make a felic
itous speech of thanks.
Oflicers for Next Year.
Following are the officers elected: Wjtlteu
Williams, of Missouri, was elected presi

WOMEN IN THE PULPlt.m,
Ainene'eignieeu oraamea "miuistresses" or
the gospel, representing thirteen different
denominations, sat on the speaker's plat
form at the lcligious services held in tLe
Washington hall of the Art Institute by
the World's Congress of Representative
Women. The women ministers who occu
pied the front row were the lievs. Mrs.
Tupper Wilkes, of the Unitarian church
tit St. i'au!; Mrs. Mary Sidl'ord, co-pastor
with Mis. Kmily Gordon, of the Unitarian
church of Sioux City, la.; Miss Florence
Kollock, of the L niversalist church of
Pasadena, Cal.; Miss Anna 11. Shaw, of
the Methodist church at large; Mrs. Caro
line J. liartlett, the presiding minister of
the meeting and the pastor of the Unita
rian church at Kalamazoo, Mich.; Mrs.
Maty foreland, of l he Congregational
church 4s. Jeanette Olmstead, of the
Congregational church at Olivette. O.
Others on the platform were the colored
evangelist, Mrs. Amanda Smith, who a
short time ago returned from missionary
work in Africa, and the liev. Ariline
Hrightnmri, of the Seventh Day Baptists,
of Austin. Ills.; Mrs. Jane S. Richards,
Susan A. Kimball, Isabella Horn, and Kl
mira S. Taylor, of the Latter Day Saints.
liev. Jeanette Olmstead invoked the divine
blessing on the work of the congress, dwell
ing on the new aspirations toward a life of
devotion to the ideals which would be the
fruit of its session, making women more
true to the divine impulses that come over
Ilev. F.mily liordon recited the hymn,
"Rise Up, Kise Up, O Women," and liev.
Florence Kollock offered prayer, expressing
the hope and the conviction that the con
gress would be a red letter day in the mem
cry of nhtions, and that its work and aspi
rations would make all more just in judg
ment of other nations and their work, and
result in the lasting good of the human
'In the progress of the great work which
has been begun creeiis and schisms shall ba
lost." she said, "and it shall become patent
to all the World that the gospel of liberty,

strong alike that these are the gospel of
Miss Catherine M. Fisk then sang the
'Creation Hymn." Miss Anna 11. Shaw
was introduced and delivered the sermon.
Miss Shaw took the lxviii psalm, verse ol
the reviscri scriptures for her text, and sr.id
in pari: -This text in the original transla
tion was, 'The Ixjrd gave the word; the
multitude that published the tidingsare a
great host,' but the revised edition has
given us a better version: "The lord giv
eth the word, the womeu that publish the
tidings are a great host.'
"All the women who have spoken at these
meetings have voice 1 the one cry, to be
free; they have been expressing the one
aspiration that truth shall be our guide,
and nor. tradition. All the work has been
imbued with the one great spirit which
takes truth for authority, not authority for
truth. We have learned that we have had
enough of creed, and it is our blessed ex
perience that no woman may say again:
'I am all alone of all the women in the
world.' This has been our love feast.
The limited vision of those women who
think that their truth must be the truth
for all, and will recognize no other creed
thau their own, is disappearing through
such work as has been done. To teach
toleration has, been the mission oft he con
gress and those who have taken part shall
go forth as women in whose souls has been
planted the germs, not of one exclusive
truth, but of many truths."
THE SUNDAY CLOSING QUESTION.
It Is Likely to i t Into the Courts for
Many thousand people went to the fair
site Sunday hoping that somehow they
could get in, but they did not. A telegram
from Washington says that Attorney Gen
eral Olney stated to an officer of one of the
societies which are determined that the fair
gates shall be closed on Sunday that to
onen them would be a violation of the law.
and if it was done the United States attor
ney at Chicago would bring suit for an in
junction to have them closed. The national
commission has not acted upon the matter
yet, but is discussing two reports today
one in favor of an open Sunday, the other
Vice President Hrvau has written an
open letter iu which he declares that the
national commission has no authority to
close the piu-s but can simply modify such
rules as the directory may adopt, and to do
this must have a majority of the whole
commission JOS members iu favor here-

The Trade and Labor assembly discussed
the question and resolved to hold a mass
meeting Wednesday evening near Jack-
sou park to decide ou a plan of action. One
of the speakers. President Linehan, made
a speech that may or may not represent
the feelings of the worKingmen. He pro
posed that a Sunday be named on which
the workintrmen should march to the
grounds. demand admission upon the tender
of 5'.t cents each and if refused "go in any
how." Such action would probably result
in a riot, but it will hardly be needed.
The liev. James Miller, of the Marsh
field Avenue Methodist Episcopal church.
surprised his congregation by devoting bis
sermon to a strong plea for opening of the
World's fair on Sunday. He declared
that the greatest need of the time was a
relaxation of strict Sunday obseryance.ani
