Chicago dispatch great Britain seems to be the quickest nation to take advantage of the chances offered by a world s fair. A study of such world s fair records As Are available shows that she has been near the top of the list in the number and character of her exhibits. Leaving out of course the countries in which the fairs were held. Great Britain headed the list at Paris in 1855, was second at Philadelphia in 1876, second at Paris in 1878, and first at Paris in 1889. No other nation ran show As Good a record so England must be considered at the head of exhibiting nations France easily leading All others in the line of giving exhibitions. The United states Only recently above to their value. Its exhibits have not been numerous although the prizes it has captured Shob that what it did exhibit was the Best. It has captured More prizes in proportion to the number of its exhibits than any other country. In going Over the records one is rather surprised to find that the smallest nations have frequently made some of the largest and Best exhibits. They Are interesting also As indicating where some of the Best exhibits for the world s columbian exposition Are coming from. At London in 1851 More than half of the exhibitors were from great Britain and colonies but it is impossible to discover what foreign nation led. It was clearly not the United states a it supplied Only 499 out of a total of 6.446 foreign exhibitors. It is probable that France headed the list at Paris in 1855 England was clearly a Leader making a better exhibit than she did at her own fair in 1851. The United states was somewhere near the Bottom on the list not even making As Good a record As it did at London. Its exhibitors numbered Only 144 out of 11,968 from foreign countries. There Are More Complete records of the fair at London in 1862. And the records Shob that France returned England s visit. In space occupied and number of exhibitors she led All other countries Germany coming next. The United states b As near the Tail of the list again but the United states Bas in trouble again at that time so it Tan hardly be blamed for allowing Austria. Belgium Italy Russia. Sweden Norway Switzerland Turkey Egypt and Denmark to Lead it Iii the number of exhibits and the space occupied. Even Holland and Portugal gave it a Tough rub and in some ways beat in China and Japan began to take an interest in exhibitions and a Erc Well represented. As exhibiting nations they have been coming Forby Ard Ever since and May be looked for to make an excellent display in 1893. At Paris in 1867 England again called on France and took one ninth of the entire space allotted to exhibitors thus holding her position As the greatest exhibiting nation. The other eight ninth by Ere divided Between some thirty nations. The United states got its display in about one fourth the apace that great Britain needed. At Vienna in 1873 Germany led both in the number of exhibitors and the space occupied doing better than Austria itself. France and England both furnished More exhibitors than the United states and Italy nearly As Many. In amount of space occupied Germany. England France Russia. Italy. Belgium Turkey and a by Itherland All led the United states. At nearly All these fairs the United states exhibit Bere due to individual Enterprise rather than to any interest on the part of the government and that May account in a measure for the country by Ith All its resounds figuring so far Down the list. At Philadelphia in 1876, great Britain received a Shock. Spain took a notion that it had some things Worth showing and when noses were counted it Bas found that it had furnished More exhibitors than any other foreign nation. England Bas a Good second Aud Portugal third. It Bas a Surprise to All other nations. At Paris in 1878, great Britain took twice As much space in the main building As any other nation but did not Lead in the number of exhibitors. Italy Austria Hungary Russia and Belgium occupied More space than the United states and Switzerland Bas pretty close to it. Austria Hungary supplied the most exhibitors outside of France b Ith Spain second and great Britain third. Algeria Belgium Italy Portugal and Switzerland were All ahead of the United states in this respect. At Melbourne in 1880 England again led without counting her provinces and Austria France Germany Italy. British India and a number of minor states did better than the United states. At Paris in 1889 great Britain led with Belgium second and the United states third but the United states did not make the Best use of its space and did not present As attractive a display As Many other nations with less space. Mexico with about one fourth the space appropriated nearly five times As much Money and a number of other governments spent More Money than the United states on much less space. From the record it would look As though great Britain would make the greatest exhibit at Chicago although Spain May duplicate her record at Philadelphia and some of the smaller nations May come up with a Rush. They have been taking a great Deal of interest in such exhibitions recently and Are Apt to be More lavish in proportion to their Means. Another interesting matter in this connection is the record of the assistance Given exhibitors at Philadelphia and Paris by the various governments. Some j governments gave great assistance and some none outside of the expenses of the commission and of making the government exhibit # at Philadelphia the Argentine Republic appropriated 8120,000, and went so far As to employ agents to interest its citizens and gather together exhibits. It also advanced Money to exhibitors to enable them to make the Best possible showing. Austria and Belgium appropriated $75,000 and $50,000 respectively for the use of their commission and to pay for the government exhibits. Private exhibitors had to look after themselves. Brazil however assumed the entire expenses for the transportation and care of exhibits from that country. So also did Egypt. Venezuela Orange free state Peru and Portugal. These countries even went so far As to pay the living expenses of exhibitors in Many instances. Denmark appropriated about $12,000, and Germany paid the expenses of its Eom Misson Only leaving its exhibitors to paddle their own canoes. The record at Philadelphia b Oul seem to indicate that great Britain s Success As an exhibitor Lay largely with its colonies. The Home government appropriated 825,000 for the Pum oses of the Art exhibit and gave some help to exhibitors but it Bas far behind some of its colonial governments. The Dominion of Canada appropriated 8100,000, and its provinces $33,000 More. Cape Good Hope defrayed the entire expense of exhibitors. As did also Nob South Wales. The latter appropriated $40,000 for that purpose. South Australia appropriated $17,500 and Tasmania assumed the entire Cost of exhibiting. Victoria spent $15,000 purchasing exhibits appropriated $44,000 for expenses and assumed the Cost of exhibiting. Apparently the colonial Rovern men to spent Over ten times As much As the Home government. Japan appropriated $300,000 and paid All the expenses of its exhibitors. The Netherlands also looked after its exhibitors. As did also Switzerland. Sweden and Norbay appropriated $110,000 and Tunis $50,000. At Paris in 1889, Mexico led in the size of its appropriation devoting $1,200,000 to its exhibits and the Argentine Republic by As second with 81.000, 000. Both countries erected special buildings. Austro Hungary gave $35,000, but not out of the government Treasury. It was raised by private subscription. Belgium put up $120,000�?a Good increase Over Bhat it gave for the Centennial and Bolivia put $60,000 into a special building. Brazil used $200,000 on its exhibit and Denmark More than doubled its Centennial appropriation putting its figures at $28,000. Ecuador used $30,-000, raised by private subscription and put up a special building. Egypt thought it was Worth $24,000 and gave that much. Great Britain s reputation was largely upheld by her colonies As before. The $135,000 she gave was raised by subscription and it was left to colonial governments to make appropriations which Many of them did. The figures however Are riot known. Greece gave $60,000 out of the Treasury and Finland $26,000 in private Money. Guatemala gave $50,000, Italy $70, xxx and Japan $130,000 less than half of what she used for the Centennial. Nicaragua and Portugal gave $100,000 each and erected special buildings. Roumania also touched the 8100,-000 Mark and Spain put $145,000 into a special building. San Domingo gave $10,000, Servia $44,000, and so Eden and Norbay 825,000, something of a drop from the Centennial appropriation. Switzerland however improved on its former appropriation giving $91,000 in addition to various sums voted by cantons. The week has been devoted largely to speculations As to the personnel of the Board of reference and control and of the bureaus. Several slates have been made up and smashed again. For the Board of reference and control the follow ing have been suggested president Palmer vice chairman Mckenzie and commissioners Waller Mussey Lindsay st. Clair Martindale and Sewell president Gage vice president Bryan and directors Jeffery Walker Peck Palmer Strong Winston Waller and Kerfoot most of these men will probably be found among the sixteen b Hen the appointments Are finally made. For the head of the Bureau of publicity and promotion col Cockerell m. E. Stone j. S. Clarkson Stanley Waterloo and r. J. Murphy were mentioned but director general Davis put a Stop to speculation by announcing that he had not yet decided in his own mind whom he would appoint. Gov. Fifer officially announced the result of the vote on the constitutional amendment and it b As left for the Council to act on the $5,000,000 Bond Issue. Gen. A. Goshorn and Thomas Donaldson both of b Hom were connected Bith the Centennial arrived in Chicago and in interview by a by Ith director Genera Davis gave him some valuable pointers on organization. Both thought that the work Here had been carried on As rapidly As we As to be expected and that the system of organization As finally settled on b As a Good one. Rollin a. Keyes resigned from the press and printing committee and Gen. W. E. Strong b As appointed in his place. Or. Keyes gave As the reason for his action press of private business. An interview with congressman Flower. Published recently criticising salaries of officers of the commission created something of a scare but it was the general opinion that As they had passed the ordeal of examination by the commission and the Secretary of the Treasury they would stand. A scare b As also occasioned by the information that there Bas a Rumor in England to the effect that the fair had been abandoned. It was promptly denied by Cable. Thursday word was received that it Bas rumoured in Russia that the fair had been transferred from Chicago to new York. This coming so soon after the other Rumor made it apparent that the Bureau of publicity and promotion Bas an immediate necessity. Tue Buckeye state. What has happened therein the past week.

His Home was in Delaware. Oar nations Law makers and what they Are doing for the Good of the country various measure proposed discussed and acted upon. The last session of the fifty first Congress began on the 1st inst. At noon when vice president Morton a Gavel fell he beamed on the Senate. Chaplain butlers prayer was a trifle longer than usual but it made up in Fervour what it lacked in Brevity. After prayer the Only business in order was the swearing la of new senators. The credentials of senators elect Carey and Warren of Wyoming were presented and they took the oath. Senator Carey a Bald head was known to every one in fhe Senate. Of senator Warren it was remarked that he added another to the Long list of youngest looking senators who Wear glasses. The customary Resolution that the draw lots to determine their length of service came from senator Hoar who is chairman of the committee on elections. Secretary Anson Mccook brought out the queer looking Box with its handle like a Corn Popper from which the slips were to he taken and in less than a minute after the adoption of the Resolution it was known that senator Warrens term will expire March 4, 1893, while senator Carey will serve until 1895. Members of Tho House of representatives were in no hurry to resume their places before noon so that in the crowd of people on the floor before la of clock not a dozen were congressmen. Pages and doorkeeper kept running in and out bearing Flower in candies and tied with ribbons baskets gotten up by skilled hands and elaborate Floral pieces donated by enthusiastic friends. The democrats were specially favored with mementos though the desks of about Twenty republicans were also tastefully decorated. Some 200 members were present when the chaplain invoked the divine Blessing and during the tedious Roll Call enough More came in to swell the number to 227. The galleries were jammed except those reserved for the presidents family and the diplomats where a few persons lonely looking were seated. The speaker Tad much difficulty in moderating the noisy convention of members so that the clerk might hear the responses to the Roll Call. At the expiration of the hour devoted to the Calendar in the Senate on the 2d, or. Hoar moved to proceed to the consideration of the House Bill a to Amend and supplement the election Laws of the United states and to provide for the More efficient enforcement of such or. Gorman demanded the yeas and nays on that motion. The yeas and nays were taken and the vote a strictly party one resulted yeas 41 nays 30. So the election Bill was taken up and the Reading went on monotonously and to empty chairs up to 2 o clock when under Tho rules of the Senate the a unfinished business from the last session came up being the House Bill providing for the adjustment of accounts of labourers workmen and mechanics arising under the eight hour Law. Or. Hoar moved to proceed with the consideration of the election Law and or. Gorman Rose to argue against that motion. The motion finally carried and the consideration of the election Bill was continued. In the House. Or. Harmer of Pennsylvania presented the petition of citizens of Philadelphia in favor of an amendment to the Mckinley Bill allowing a rebate on unbroken packages of smoking tobacco and snuff. Referred. In the morning hour or. Simonds from the committee on patents called up for consideration the copyright Bill. Or. Payson 111. Raised the question of consideration. The House decided yeas 132 nays. 74�?to consider Tho Bill. No vote on the measure was reached. In the Senate or. Hawley from the committee on military affairs on the 3d reported and asked to have put upon its passage a joint Resolution authorizing Tho Secretary of War to Issue arms and ammunition to the states of North and South Dakota. Or. Manderson moved to Amend it by including the state of Nebraska and referred to the threatened uprising of Tho Sioux indians on their reservation there. Or. Voorhees said that if the proposition were one to Issue a Hundred thousand rations of food to the starving indians it would be More consistent with Christian civilization. Maj. Gen. Miles he said had stated in Public interviews that the indians were driven to revolt by starvation and it was in his judgment a crime on the part of the government to stand silently by and do nothing except furnish arms to the Whites. In the House the copyright Bill was passed the vote being 139 to 95�?44 majority for Tho Oil i. The Amer native vote was Given by 105 Republican Ami h4 democrats and the negative by 69 democrats and 26 republicans. A Large proportion of its support came from the Eastern and Middle states while the bulk of the opposition was from the West and South. The Bill is substantially the same As that Wloch passed the Senate in the fiftieth Congress and failed to be acted upon in the House. The election Bill was taken up in the Senate on the 4th and or. Pugh spoke in opposition to it. He said the country could not fail to understand the True character and nature of the proposed legislation. It was never intended to be put in operation in Republican districts. Under its operation there would not be a single District in Tho United states from which democrats Wero elected to Congress that would riot to subject to supervision by partisan republicans. The whole Conception of the Bill was a transparent and audacious scheme having no other end or purpose than the capture of democratic districts. In the House the Bill for Tho punishment of every guardian conservator curator committee Tutor or other judiciary agent for the embezzlement of the pensions of a Ward was passed. On motion of or. Morrow of California the House went into committee of the whole on the pension appropriation Bill. Or. Morrow said that the Bill appropriated for the payment of pensions the sum of 8133,173,000. It was estimated that this sum of Money would be distributed among 654,715 pensioners. This was the largest number of beneficiaries Ever provided for in any single item in the statutes of the United states. It was estimated that the Gross Cost to Tho United states of these pensions for the year 1892 would average 1203 each. He believed there would be no deficiency next year that there would prove to be a slight excess of appropriation. The election Bill was taken up in the Senate on the 5th, and or. Gray spoke against it. The Bill he said was menacing to the peace happiness and Freedom of the several states. Notwithstanding the sneer uttered by the president of Tho United states As to the objections of those who opposed the Bill there were Many who believed the measure one that threatened the integrity of american institutions state and National. Senator Stanford introduced a Bill to provide the government with Means sufficient to Supply the National want of a sound circulating medium and asked that it lie on the table stating that he would hereafter submit some remarks on it. The Bill is the same As that introduced by him last May. It authorizes the Issue of $100,, in Treasury notes to he loaned at 2 per cent upon application by citizens owning unencumbered agricultural lands the Loans not to exceed one half the assessed value of the land nor to extend for More than Twenty years. In the House the joint Resolution authorizing the Secretary of War to Issue one thousand stand of arms to each of the states of North and South. Dakota. Wyoming and Nebraska was passed. The politicians had a Lively fight Over the annual pension appropriation Bill. The democrats charged that the total appropriation proposed was Many millions Short of the amount that will be required during the next fiscal year to pay claims that will be granted under the pension legislation of this Congress and that the object was to throw on the next Congress the necessity of providing for a heavy deficiency. The Bill which appropriates something Over $135.000,-000, was finally passed. All sorts. A negro at Perry a is said to weigh 500 pounds. Opium kills about 160,000 persons annually in China.
