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
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.
