opened one feature that excited the
-enthusiastic comment of the great
crowds present was that the manage
ment had lived up to Its motto of "the
show that will bo on time." Not only
were the buildings completed and the
grounds covered with grass and flow
ers, as though they had been planted
for years, but every exhibit was In

on the other side of the continent,
pressed the button that made the great
fair a living tiling. The scene present
ed carried out Charles Dana Gibson's
verdict after visiting the grounds that
the A.-Y.-P. is "the most beautiful
exposition ever planned." Situated be
tween two fresh water lakes in a for
est, of great trees, w.lth one open colon
nade showing a background from dif
ferent angles, the natural setting to
tho picture Is ideal. There are the
usual buildings seen at expositions,
with the advantage that many of
these are to lie permanent and after
the fair is closed on Oct. ir will be
turned over to the University or Wash
ington, on whose campus the fair is
held. The fact that the exposition
grounds belong to a college Is the
cause of a third novelty, which Is that
this is a "dry" show, no Intoxicating
liquors being sold in the vicinity. Still
a fourth unique feature Is that this
exposition did not ask I'nclo Sam for
a cent. The .$000,000 which was spent
on the governmeiifbuildings was giv
The A.-Y.-P. is commemorative of
no past event. It Is hung upon to
morrow rather than yesterday, a
prophecy rather than a niemoVial. It
exhibits what are unknown and untie
veloped, the potentialities of the Pa
cific northwest, Alaska and countries
bordering on the Pacific. Otherwise
stated, it is an exposition of what is
very largely unknown rather than of
the highest development. Alaska has
re uml ned first In the title and Inspira
tion of the exposition. This territory,
for which we paid $7,200,000, produces
three times that amount every year
In gold alone. In the last forty years
It has produced, besides its gold. $S0,.
000,000 worth of furs, nnd Its fisheries
have handled a product valued at
000,000. The exposition serves to
show Americans that Alaska is an em
pire of agricultural nnd forest wealth
as well as a treasure box of minerals.
The far eastern countries bordering
on the Pacific, including the Philip
pines and Hawaii, have the most elab
orate exhibits at Seattle that they have
ever attempted anywhere. Here it is
possible to find out what these coun
tries need as well as what they pro
duce. Japan perhaps more than any
other eastern nation has grasped the
commercial Importance of the exposi
tion. For the amusement street of the ex
position a novel name nnd many novel
' features have been found. What was
the Midway at Chicago, the Pike at
St. Louis, tho Trail at the Portland ex
oosltlou and the Warpath at James-
town Is called the Pny Streak at Seat
tle. The administration of the exposition
has been in the hands of various de
partments, each backed by a commit
tee of the leading business men of the
northwest. J. E. C'hllberg. a pioneer
of Alaska and head of the Scandi
navian American bunk. Is president.

"I believe that the prosperity of the

with which the farmer treats his
ground that Is to say. the liberality
with which lie purchases his supplies
and employs laltor.
"I ant glad to note that confidence Is

Aldrich Yields as to Tariff
on Bacon, Lard and Beef.
HOUSE RATES ARE RETAINED.
Increase Ordered In Import Tax on
Stout, Ale, Beer and Porter.
Senate Finishes Agricul
Washington. June 1. Agreements
were reached In the senate upon many
sections of the tariff bill, and the par
agraphs relating to agriculture were
til disposed of.
Mr. Thieon opposed the proposed ln
reases over the rates of the house
illl In duties on bacon and hams, lard,
fresh beef, etc.. and Mr Aldrich sur
prised the senate by withdrawing the
committee amendments, saying that he
believed the house rates, although be
low those of the Dlngley law rates,
were protective to those Industries.
The committee on finance had rec
ommended an increase from 4 to i
cuts a pound on bacon and hams, and
Mr. Itacou opposed these amendments.
After Mr. Itacou had declared that
the proposed Increases on bacon nnd
hams, lard, fresh meat, veal, mutton,
pork, etc.. would endanger the welfare
of the Republican party Mr. Aldrich
smilingly declared that as "he had the
welfare of the Republican party at
heart" he would withdraw the com
This action came as n surprise to
many senators, and Mr. Aldrich ex
plained that he had taken this, action
because he wanted to curtail the de
bate and did not believe the lower
duty provided by the house on these
irtieles would nlfcct the importations.
"If I believed." said Mr. Aldrich, t
that every item of tills bill raised the ,
price ot the article nucctcd then I
hould cease to be a protectionist."
"1 have no question whatever Hint
the rates on these articles are protec-

STRIKERS ATTACK CARS.
Violence Follows Attempt to Break
Philadelphia, June 1. Strike break
ers and niotormen from other cities
were put to work today In an effort to
break the strike of the niotormen and
conductors of the street car lines of
this city. Notwithstanding these lin
j portatlons very few cars were run.
' Tlteelwefl ill tin. lirlniln- nf lint sitrtlre
j breakers here, sympathizers of the
striking street car men made demon
strations at the barns whwe the new
j men are quartered, and many arrests
I were made by the police.
A crowd of strikers attacked Leslie
! Snow, a motornian, who drew a re
volver and fired live bullets Into the
crowd. The police rescued hint In time
to save him from serious Injury.
One of the chief demonstrations was
made at the West Philadelphia barn
when the strike breakers under heavy
police guard began taking out cars. X
squad of mounted police had to charge
the crowt repeatedly before It dis
persed. Finally the cars were started,
but they ran almost empty the entire
length of the route, while spectators
along the sidewalks made seofflrg re
marks. Mayor. Heyburn stated that he would
swear In 10.000 extra policemen if nec
essary and keep the ears running for
the convenience of the public. The
public will be accommodated, the may
or said. If the "city has to take over
'the rapid transit lines and run them
itself with the firemen, the police nnd
the extra police."
At a meeting of strikers John J.
Murphy, president of the Central La
bor union, pledged the support of tho
Central Labor union to the trolley
men. "If the Rapid Transit company
don't come to time by Thursday." he
said, "there will be a general strike de
clared by Friday. We will parade on
Itroad street on Saturday and show
them our strength.
"The elevated and subway men as
well as the power house men are ready
to Join us. and as for my own union,

RAILROAD TO ARBITRATE.
Labor Commissioner Neill Unable to
Settle Georgia Strike.
Atlanta. (ia June 1. Vnalile to
agree upon the terms of settlement,
the oilieials of the Georgia railroad
and of the l'.rolherliood of Firemen
have Invoked arbitration under the
Commissioner of Labor Neill and
Chairman Knapp of the Interstate com
merce commission notified both parties
to the dispute to select an arbitrator
within five days. These two men will
select a third.
The disagreement came over the re
tention of negroes. The firemen first
demanded the dismissal of all negroes.
This was refused flatly. The firemen
then proposed that negroes now em
ployed or who were employed prior to
April 10 should be retained. They de
manded that all white firemen should
have seniority over all negroes.
In addition, they asked that at no
time should the number of negrooB
cmpkjycd exceed Lr per cent of the
white firemen on the company's pay
roll. If at any time the number of
negroes employed dropped below 2."
per cent no more were to be employed.
It is said that the Georgia railroad
might have consented to this but for
the opposition of the terminal com
pany. All other disputed points and de-
mauds were conceded except the sen
j Iori.v ,,f white men and the limitation
to negroes employed.

The damage to the ship Is much
more serious than at first thought.
The envelope was torn, and It was
thought that the Injury could be re
paired and that the vessel would pro

ination, however, disclosed the fact
that the prow was broken and that a
considerable time must elapse before
the journey could be continued.
The position of the craft is extreme
ly unfavorable, the ground being very
hilly. The bow rests on the ground,
while the stern is about sixty-five feet
in the air. A strong breeze sprang up
toward evening, causing no little anx
iety for the safety of the airship,
which It was feared would be wrecked
should a storm could up.
After considerable labor and with
the assistance of some of those who
had gathered at the scene of the acci

the position of his airship a little and

That the collision was a heavy one Is
indicated by the broken and bent

Heat at Unveiling.
Hogdenville. Ky.. June 1. Hubert T.
Lincoln, son of President Lincoln, was
stricken by heat toward the close of
the ceremonies of unveiling his fa
ther's statue at Hogdenville.
Mr. Lincoln, who is president of the
Pullman Car company. Is sixty-six
years old. and the tierce rays of tlie
sun beating on the canvas over his
head, the emotion Incident to the me
morials and the fatigue of his journey
almost unnerved him.
He leaned heavily on the arm of
Henry Watterson, who spoke at the
exercises and later accompanied Mr.
Lincoln to his private car. Mr. Lin

chief regret was that his illness pre
vented his taking the three mile ride
from Hodgenvllle to see the cabin
wherein his father was born.
TWO BOYS KILLED BY BOMB.
