The board of directors transacted Its busi
ness yesterday with somewhat more celerity
than usual. It was decidedly chilly In the
Administration Arch. The only question
that provoked any debate occurred In con
nection with the report of the special com-
mltteo which was appointed at the previous
meeting to submit n plan that would effect
an Improvement in the present system of
transacting the every day business of the
association and at the same time not work
a hardship on any of the employes. This
was read by Thomas Kllpatrlck and In effect
It was an nntldoto to the report which had
been submitted by the auditing committee
at a. previous meeting nnd the operation of
which had been criticised by Secretary
\Vakcflcld. Yesterday the committee rec
ommended that the secretary bo allowed to
cash vouchers at his office as heretofore for
the present and also that Inasmuch as the
employes are paid only once a month small
amounts may be advanced In cases where a
necessity appears to exist. The previous
recommendation that the books should bo
balanced every afternoon , which Is still in
force , was cot changed.
Herman Kountzo called attention to the
fact that under the present system vouchers
are drawn , made payable to Secretary
\Yukofleld nnd receipted for by him. In these
cases there is nothing on the voucher to
show that the original holder has received
his money. This he considers un Irregular
way of doing business , although he docs
not doubt that the transactions were en
tirely legitimate. Secretary NVakefleld ex
plained that these cases occurred when a
man held a voucher against which the expo
sition had a counter claim. In these cases
ho made a check In favor of the exposition
for the amount of the claim and another In
favor of the man with the voucher for what
ho had coming after the amount of the
claim was deducted. This saved trouble
and ono amount balanced the other.
Mr. Rosownter suggested that a sub-
treasury should be established on the
grounds at which smaller vouchers might
be paid. No matter how great confidence
was reposed in the employes of the exposi
tion its business should be transacted like
that of any other big corporation. The re
ceipts are now more than sufficient to pny
the bills and there is no reason why
emergency cases should not bo met by having -
ing a representative of the treasurer , who
should bo under a guarantee bond , on the
ground with authority to cash vouchers up
to n certain limit.
Mr. Kountzo said that ho was not willing
to assume the responsibility of putting n
man on the grounds , but ho was willing that
the association should dp it. No final action
was taken and the entire subject was re
ferred to the executive committee.
John Owens , formerly superintendent
under Manager Uabcock , filed a communica
tion In which ho protested against the ac
tion of the management In connection with
his separation from the position. He nar
rated the trouble between himself nnd the
express concesslonlsts substantially as
stated In his interview that was published
In The Dee at the time and declared that ho
was the victim of unwarranted persecution.
Ho asked that he be given nu opportunity
to verify his position and was referred to
the executive committee.
In accordance with the resolution passed at
the previous meeting Secretary Wakefleld
submitted a report of the number of passes
of each description now outstanding. The
totals are : Series A , 1,598 ; series U , 227 ;
scries C , 3,554 ; series B , photograph passes ,
C43 ; series P , photograph passes , 3,708.
Mr. Kosewater inquired what the Inspec
tor has accomplished towards checking up
the passes coming through the gates and
Mr. Llndsey replied that ho is working on
it right along nnd was making dally re

Notwithstanding the rain , the Woodmen
of the World turned out In largo numbers
and made their presence felt at the expo
sition yesterday. Owing to the sloppy con
dition of the grounds there was no parade
around the Grand Court , nor was there a
band contest. The exorcises In the Audi
torium were held nnd were attended by
fully 2.000 people , who listened to the
speeches and the music.
Promptly at 2 o'clock n. E. McKelvey ,
presiding officer , called the meeting to order
and Introduced Mayor Moorcs , who extended
a welcome to the city , during the course of
which ha said :
The order of the Woodmen of the World
stands for the great principles of cliarlty
and fraternity as must nil popular Institu
tions which are destined to have permanent
existence. In no part of the world arc
I 1 these great principles more generally prac-
tlced than in the great central west , and
this accounts in a measure for the wonder
ful popularity of your order among the hos
pitable , charitable and friendly people ol
this region. The Woodmen of the World is
a western institution the product of west
ern thought , push nnd financial sagacity. 1
regret that your order docs not have a

a socllon of Iho conservative party ) re
fuses the Government the support of his
party , although ho is fully aware of the
difficulties of Ills situation. He is doubt
less prompted by the desire to obtain
power. Wo will do all in our power lo
realize ills desire with short delay. The
country will then see how soon the man
wlio is now posing as a conservative will
be transformed Into a despotic dictator. "
General Polavlcja has handed a copy of
his manifesto to the newspaper men , but
the censor forbids its publication. Ho also
forbids its transmission by telegraph. It Is
probable that the general intends lo read
It today in the Cortes , but It is certain the
government will prevent him from so doing
und will insist on a secret session.
The Liberal again today makes the as
sertion that Premier Sagnsta will resign as
soon as the chamber adopla the peace bill.
