this city, whether

course of procedure. There -were some
other features of the case, however. The

took the ground that the appropriation of
$2,500,0ii0 - in souvenir coins by the United
States government could not possibly be
construed p a charity, or as a charitable
bequest. It was simply an appropriation

MEN OF RELIGION DIFFER.

world" is a common expression, but not at
all true. It would be strange if they did
not differ, ai.d what a world it would be

the decision as a victory for-religion and

"True religion will be best" subserved,

grace if it were otherwise.".
And the aToresaid paragraph is exceed
There has lieen quite a war waged by the
city papers on the free list of the World's
fair. Nobody knew how large it was, and
soul-harrowing appeals were made to the
directory to cut it down. Then one day
last week the directory ordered that noth
ing but the total admissions be given out,
and that did raise a howl. With the object
of bringing the directory to terms one pa
per said the way to get at the paying at
tenance was to deduct 40 per cent, from
the total, and from all sides the storm of
editorial condemnation raged on' the de
voted directorial head.
Than the managers turned squarely
round and ordered exact and detailed fig
ures to be given out total attendance,
number of adults who paid and number
of children who paid. These were supplied
for Thursday, German day and showed
that the attendance was on that day away
ahead of any day to date. The total was
200,7i5S: paid adults, 156,61"; children, 8,439;
total 105.05S; passes of all kinds, 363,48; pro
portion of passes to attendance less than
25 per ;ent. - On Friday the proportion was
about 36 per cent. Saturday the attend
ance whs 144.36S paid, and 179,536 total;
proportion of free admissions, less than 20
per cent. Acrording to a recent report there
were 30,000 p, rsons employed by the direc
tory who of course go in free. There are
probably 5,000 more concessionaires, exhib
itors and their assistants, and officers,
making 85,000 who of necessity go in free.
This would reduce the total compliment
ary admissions to about 6 per cent, or

The opinion was unanimous, and as it
