The rain fpll in torrents all through the morning, and the idea of an outof-doors demonstration was for tfclt reason aban- doned. Chaplain Beaudry of East Albany opened the encampment with prayer, and T K. Fuller of this city made the address of welcome, Department Commander Clark responding. Just as the annual rejioi ts were being presented, Governor Alser, aivom pftnied by a number of officers and by a re- ception comnntU'0 entered the ball and were escorted to a front spat amid cheers tha almost shook the building.

LONDON-, Feb. of the Ixmdon papers givo expression to their views con- cerning the action of the Ajncrican house of representatives in selecting Chicago as the site of the promised world's fiilrwith varying of approval or condemnation, and the cuninu'iitM tjikcn altogether may be re- garded evincing a. depth of English inter- est in the project of which no indication baa hitherto liocn apparent. The St. James Ga- zette expresses pleasure that Chicago has chosen since in its opinion foreigners visiting Now York would merely see another London whereas a visit to Chicago will enable them tn see Roveral states and at the same time obtain a fair idea of tup expanse and re- sources of the country. The Globe similarly expresses satisfaction at the selection. Chicago, it concludes, is the very place for the fair because it is more central than uny of the other eltiossuggestod. Against the contention that Chicago is miles from tho wn-lioarcl, The Clloue argues that that distance is u matter of no account in America where space is annihilated as It is ill no other country in the world. The Kvrning Standard thinks that the ex- position has been belittled by the selection of Chicago anil says that the result in the of representatives was undoubtedly effected by wire pulling. Chicago, it asserts is a vul- gar town at the be-st and presents oven to Americans themselves not a single one of the many advantages possessed by Now York, the infinite suiwriorily of which should have been plain to every person taking part in the location of the fair. The other favor Chicago, despite the distance to lw covered in reaching it, the journey from New-York being one of con- stantly varying interest and a sotlivo of nulermont to strangers, while the city of NEW ARRIVALS!

Feb. ai resentatives of Chicago's in the world's fair matter "ill beta e the house commit- tee of world's fair to-day and signify their desire in regard to the general bill which the committee will re-model and perfect in such a way as to provide for holding the fair at Chicago. The Chicago men are anxious to have the section of the bill providing for the holding of the fair under a national charter elimina- ted and a substitute permitting a state in- corporation inserted. They want the iucor- porators to be from the state of Illinois, half to be appointed by the governor and half by the mayor of Chicago. A request that a sub-committee of the world's fair committee be designated to visit Chicago and look over the various sites offered with a view to decid- ing on one of them, will be made to the com- mittee, and if the committee does not look favorably upon this then it will be asked to allow Chicago men to appear before it and make oral arguments concerning the differ- ent sites.

When the senate of the United States came to such a condition that the word "coward" could be applied to a senator and that a senator could be i barsed w ith stating anything falseiy, It set-mcd to him that tho senate was receding from the dignity which had distinguished it from the foundation of the government. Mr. Call said that if lie had violated any of the rules of tlio .senate by any observations thnt he had made he withdrew them and to the senate. After further discussion the resolution was sent to the committee on priviliges and elec- tions.

Mr. Andrews Testiflep. ALBANV, Feb. The case of John Bnaith against the state of New York for the balance duo upon the assembly ceiling of como up before the board ofdaims yester- day. Mr. Snttith was represented by Matthew Hale and Wurthmgtnn Frothinghain, and Assistant Attorney Generals Maynard and Hogan for the state. There waseonsiderable discussion over the request of counsel for Simith desiring to look at the plans in tho keeping of the attorney general. Mr. Hale presented the case of Mr. Bnaith and offered in evidence the specifications, containing tho famous papier mache clause, and also the bond signed by Mr. Bnaith's bondsmen. The defense objected to allowingthese in evidence, alleging that they were changed and altered during or after the execution of tho contract, impeaching their genuineness. Mr. Charles B. Andrews, formerly super- intendent of public buildings, was the first witness called. He testified that he knew Fremont Cole, Frank Enz, William H. Gal- lup, William F. Sheehan and George H Weed, and saw them sign the cont ract for the performance of tho work. He bad not seen the contract for at least a year. While he had it, he kept it in his safe and to that he only had access. Mr. Hognn tried to show that Snaith hod plenty of opportunity to see specifications for the bond signed by him on the day the attorney general made out the contract. The witness, however, failed to re- member any such occurrence, although ho re- membered the drawing up of tho contract by the attorney (gmeral. He could not remem- ber when the bond was signed. Mr. Frothinghain again offered the specifi- cations in evidence, and the board decided to receive them. A recess was thon taken until 10 o'clock this morning. The decision in this case will have a very important bearing upon tho case of fraud now pending in the civil courts. __________________ Sarah Altlieit a Scene. BAN FRA.NCISCO, Feb.
