Many Fair Arguments Heard in the House. FOCB CITIES AFTER THE HONOR. Sonth Oppoced to the Orfttnri Dree Upon ConKren the Clalmi of Mew York, Chicago, Wellington and St. Louti to the WABBINOTON, Feb. 21 was plainly ap- parent soon after the house met that there was a fixed intention on the part of a num bcr of southern Democrats to oppose the World's fair project because of the govern- ment appropriation of provided for In the several bills. When the speaker announced that the consideration of the World's fair bill was the regular order Mr Candler, of the chairman of the com mil We in charge of the matter, made a statement concerning the allotment of time for discuwlon by the committee. Mr Mills (TeiL) Mr. McMillan (Tenn) ob- jected to ttfc bftl Mr Mills wai not satisfied with the allotment of time He demanded of the time in behalf of the opponents of the bill A wrangle ensued Mr Kilgore (Tel.) finally raised the ques- tion of consideration, and a vote was taken, in 188 yeas 31 rays. Democrat! Agreed with the Speaker "No Mr Kllgore "The chair overrules the the speaker deliberately There was much laughter at this remark, ind for the first time in several weeks the Democrats did not oppose a radi- cal ruling made by the speaker On the contrary most of them Deemed to be much pleased. Mr Candler far the Fair Mr Candler finally succeeded in begin nlng his speech on the general features of the project, outlining reasons why a fair inould be held. He defended the sections in the general bills appropriating moupy for a govejiimnnt exhibit, contending that the people should have a chance to improve themselves by a study of an exhibit that the government of the United States could make It was clear that the fair would bring into circulation an immense amount of money Ice proposition was of as m-cn interest to tbeiouth, that might vote against it, as it to the other sections of the counliy air. Flower for New York. Mr. Flower (N Y opened the discussion for the rnotrornlis. Uncnlri he believed that the selection of New York as the site fcr the fair meant the greatest possible success in this undertaking New York wruld assume the responsibility to finnnce the fair and make it a SUCCOR, He dwelt upon the claim that the success of the fair depended upon the participation of foreign nations, and biUd that Chicago, St. Louis and Washington could not offer proper facilities to fuuigu cihibltore because of their situation Mr Flower held up a telegram at this moment nnnounci-d that Governor Hill had signed the New York World's fair bill (Applause) Mew England for the Metropolis. Mr Moore (N H) eaid that, a neighborly feeling impelled the people of New England to support the claims of the people of New York. On the Atlantic coast, he said, bad developed the fullest typo of the flower of our civilization, and there was no place so Siting (pr the display of thnt flower as the city of New York. Mr Covert (N Y) cluimed that in none of the competing citirs except New Yoik could be en the navies of the woi Id, He thought the greatness of thla country could be viewed better nowhere Journalist CUiumhigs a Hit. Mr Cummings (H Y) said that the fair should be held m a city commensurate with the greatness of the undertaking The selec- tion of a site was a vital point, fair would not be a World's fair if it was not held at the commercial center of the conti- nent. Ho advanced many arguments as to the accessibility of Ntw Ycrk to alt classm speech created much enthusiasm. More Now York Hen Heard. Mr Iracy (N Y) said that New York asked only a charter, and not a dollar He dwelt on the fact that New York was more accessible to foreign visitors than was any other site Mr Qumn (N Y at length of the beauties ot New York hnrbor and the Hudson river. Mr Sherman (N Y) said that he thought that New York was the b-st site, but wherever the fair was held it would be the grandest in history. Mr McAdoo (N J said that be was proud of St Louis and Chicago, but no exposition would be a success unless it was accessible to tho masses, as it would be at New York Ihe works ot genius and art were Bl eater than those of agriculture The peoule of the United btates should be educated by something more tbi" ai exhibition of material things. ClilCRCo't Voice ICalsed. Mr Hitt (111') spoke in favor of Chicago He said that Chicago was near the center of the United It was accessible to the mining reginnii of Pennsylvania and the great agricultural belts of the west. Its tonnage WHO second in among American cities. Re said that if the fair was held in New York, foreigners would stop at the gats of the republic and turn back. If it held in the west, they would go on and the grand opulence of the interior The site at Cuicago was ready. It would leave a great bole in the treasury after New York had flnhhed bitting away rocks for a tite there. He held th it a very Htaall proportion of the attendance at tun fair would ba that of foreigners. In con- cl'islon he said thnt if the fair was held at Chicago it would be memorable mag uiflcent succe" Atfbthur windy Cltj Gun fired Mr. (UK) uld that the people of Chicago had a habit of succeeding in what- ever they undertook' In England and in France the customs and of 600 yeart concentrated political and intellectual life at tba head city of the nation, with us it was diffx-'d throughout tht Union The farmers of United States, rather than the residents of great citioc, held in their bunds the destinies of the republic. Mr Adams spoke of the cosmopolitan character of the population of Chicago He referred to the guarantee fund already raised, and said that almost every state in the Union was repre- sented on the subscription list No money would be needed for the site, and none of the money expended on the fair would go toward the permanent improvement of the Chicago park system. Fear States for Chicago. Mr McCreary (Ky) argued in favor of Chicago, saying the throo greatest national celebrations ever held in this country had been be d in the east, and it was now the tuiuof the west Messrn Cntcheon Taylor Perkins (Knn mid Chipman (Mich.) spoke in favor ot Cuicngo Five Speaker! for St f nlft Mr. Neidnnghaus (Mo) epoko foi ISf Louis, and Mr Slone (Mo) enlarged in on thn nrl- o the g ogr rpmc il n ot -jt Louis Mr Breckmrldge li Dock ivnrt Mr Cariith (Ky) orcd St toula i fnkes R nnf i no Mr McComM i favored n, i t in or. toil whvve.
