Mrs, Palmer Balks on Proposed Use of WorldsFair Fund CHICAGO, March 3.-Ult!mate disposi tion of the $67,000 trust fund granted the women managers of the World's Colum bian exposition In 1E93 was still unsettle.! today, while Mrs. Potter Palmer, cus todian of the fund, was speeding to her winter home In Sarasota. Fla. Mrs. Palmer, whose Ideas of the proper use of the fund differ from those of Harlow N. Hlginbotham, president of the World's Columbian exposition, left behind her a second statement In which she made It clear that Mr. Hlglnbotham'r suggestion that the $77,000 bo augmented by $200,000 from the estate of the latr Potter Palmer and used In the erection of a woman's building did not meet her approval. The Potter Palmer will devised $200,000 for a woman's building, but It stipulated that the structure should be erected in lake front park. Mrs. Palmer pointed nut that supreme court decisions forever bar such use of the park, and that the trustees of tho Palmer estate "have no power or authority to use $200,000 of hla estate to erect a memorial building ex cept under the conditions of the will now Impossible of fulfillment." In equally positive terms Mrs. Palmer stated that the $67,000 fund "did not corns as Mr. Hlginbotham stated, as a gift from the world's fair directors, but came from sales In the woman's and children's buildings, and Is dedicated to philanthro pic work." Before boarding the train for Florida Mrs. Palmer replied to a petition of tho woman's party of Cook county that the fund be used for a woman's forum. She said that In her opinion "auch a use of the money would be a deviation from tho purposes to'whleh this fund -was dedl cated." The securities In which the fund was Invested wore checked over by a com mittee of bankers at- Mrs. Palmer's re quest, and their report that tho fund amounted to $67,750 was Incorporate-! tn Mrs. Palmer's statement.
