A Large J airt of the rejiort is devoted to reviewing Hie different se* turn* of the bill which have already been detailed in full. The fifth sect mu, it is stated, authorizes a nut im tai iiMimiivdoo in plan* of a local cxuqs'fation a* provided in the original bill, to accept ft»r th** world s fair the site, plans and s) ss *i fit at im is of tim buildings to be erected and tendered by the corporation create*! miller the laws of Hie state <»f Illinois known as the “World's expiration of l^Ki." Tile report states that the committee in preeeiiting this section re**og-uifses the objeiiious w Inch have Isimi raised against a feileral «v»r}K>rati<4i and has avail**! itself of one «*reaUsi under the laws of the state of Illinois. This suggestion, it is said, was made by the repre«eiitativ *»& of the city of Chicago. It is in a*•<snil (says the re|s>rt) w ith the action taken in the formation of the corporation; it is simple and practical and relieve* the government from any allegation of connection wit Ii jL It insures Hint everything connected with the selection of the site am! Hie erect ii *n of the buildings shall Is* *i«iducted by a «i>rporatioii with ample means which w ill deliver it for tile maw of the exposition, without any obligations on the |iart of the United States government or otherwise !**-yond that which the government appropriate* for its own oaiiuussiou and for it* own exhibit. Ami Hie commission, the report stat**, acting independent of the corporation, and without power to incur any obligation*. is instructed bv this a«*t to accept tile buildings only when tbey shall be deemed by the commission to ta* adequate for the pui}*>s**s for which they are intended. The ref toil continues: “In th** original w hich wa*submitted to the house, the 11th section stated that not leas than the sum of    should    la* sub scribed ami pledged ami not less than IO ja*r lent urn thereof should la* actually paid in cash bcf«tre the commission could do any corporate a«‘t other than that necessary t*. it* organi/ation. The bill now r**|a>rt«*d is still more conservative, protecting the government's interest so far as it* connection with it is «*oncert»e*i, and insuring the financial sui-cess of the fair beyond a reasonable contingency by providing that the commission shall md only ta* salisflis! that the actual Linn tide julwription to th* capita! stock of at least tr>,(J(M),0t)0 has l***n made of w hich not less titan $oUU*dd has I sen paid, lait also dec lane that tile further sum of feft.OUO.OQD, making $10,000,000, shall !** provided l»y the corporation in ample time or as ne**led for the successful prose*-Ution of the Work.” The committee has given **an*ful c<uisi*ler-ation to tile rtatunento of the representatives of the finance committee of the city of Uhi-•tigo as t«* th** suhHTiptions to the st*»ck of $.'».(SKM**I am! believes the sulisci iptions to lie bona ti*!*', that they an* in go*si faitii and that they will I** jsiid.

The committee alw/ acis'pts the statement* and representations made by the citizens »>f Chicago thiough their committee, as to their ability to mi-e an additional **>,000,4JUQ, and are of th** opinion that they are made in g*K*l faith and will not be rc|»mliab*d. “W bile it i* the judguuqit of the committee (hat the city of Chicago will m**et the obligation- and promi-esof their representatives, it would (all attention to the fact that the judgment of this committee is not taken a1*me, but that th** commission, on thef^vot in Chhngo, will have a more favorable opportunity to satisfy themselves iii regard to the site, the plaits, th** buildings an*) the certainty of the #10,(JOtUNJO than it would la* pos-ibl* for a «i>mtint tee of this Ii*»ti-a* to do w ithout taking mon time and entering into the details of tile exposition more fully than it would Is* w ise ami practical during a session of congress.

There had been also a question whether the then executive would have approved the bill. Now, all that was .

March 'JU. —Tile distress resulting directly sud indirectly from the colliers’ strike is spreading with alarming rapidity through'ait England. The misery is not confined to the striker*- and their families, for tile former are sufficiently provided with funds to enable them to prolong the struggle for several weeks, but is felt wholly among tile workers in other industries, which have become stagnant for want of fuel. The large irou mills at Tipton, Staffordshire, closed ywterday for lark of **oal to keep them running, an*! many other mills and factories have also shut down, or will do so to-day. Thu# thousands of working men ami women w ho by steady employment earned lo rely enough to sustain life, are temporarily thrown out of work and are already in many cases object* of ( banty. Local aid has been invoked to supplv the needy with food. but the (MiitrilHition* are inadequate to their requirement*. Meanwhile the strikers are advancing toward victory by the capitulation of masters iii many places. All of the strikers in Leidwtershire ami 5,UUU in IVrby-fhire returned to work yesterday nj#hi the assurance of the masters that their demands would lie granted and the influence of the action of these owners is more than the still obdurate masters w ill be able to withstand. VON CAPRI VT* Al POI NT ll ENT. The appointment of <h*n. von t’aprivi to the German chancellordtip is generally raga.^'(led as an ex*vllent one. He is able, firm and well-liked, and is in thor*sigh harmony with the views and policy of the eitqieror. It is now recalled that the new chnn</ellor has ha«l frequent conferences with the kaiser of late, which fact gives rise to the tielief that the re-ignation of Prince Bismarck was not uI»evpc*-led by the snqieror, but was s«r-prisiiig only in its not having lieen presented to hi* I. Meaty earlier. It isnot lielteved that any marked changes in the (siliey of Prince Bismarck will lie made, for the present at least. HK ETCH OF THE NEW CHANCELLOR I>*o Von Uaprivi was bom SO yean* ago, his father tieing a prominent criminal jurist and judge of the Prussian supreme court, and Lls mother the (laughter of a college president. He entered the army and after a period of subaltern service he served on the staff of various army corps. He saw active s**rvi<*e in I fido, but it was in the war with France that he made his great reputation as chief of staff of the Tenth army cor{**. From this time his promotion was steady. and in I *S‘J he was app Hilted to the command of the 'ibntietb division at Metz. When Gen. Stench retired from the itiiiienai ministry of marine in 18KI, Gen. von Caprivi vias selected as hit* successor, a choice w Inch created a great deal of dissatisfaction Hilting naval officers. Gen. Batscb, w ho was next in rank to Gen. Stench, resigned in con-sisjuenee of the slight [nit upon him.'but consented to remain in office at the re*{iiest of the old Emperor William. Gen. Uaprivi remained at the head of the navy until June, 1888, when he retired in consequence of some di-sigr**«-nu ut iii relation Ut matters of organization. ri he eni(>er**r then conferred upon hun the Grand Cross of the Red Eagle and placed him iii command of the Tenth army corps, which is stationed at Hanover. This (Mwition he beld at the time of his present appointment. The St. petersburg Novosti expresses it* entire approval of the objects of the Berlin labor conference and comm* lid* it* proceedings and results to the careful attention of Russia with a view to the practical application of such of it* recommendation* as may lie conqwtihle with Ku*«ia’s social ami econ-omic condition, tentatively at least, A large hotel and eight residence building* were burned at Hunfeld, Pl I—ll. yesterday.
