The Fair Committee of the Honae yesterday Chicago as a site for the fair. The general bill waa taken np by the committee and amended by inserting the name Chicago and then referred to a sub-committee consisting of Messrs. Candler, Hitt and Springer for perfec- tion. The sub-committee was directed to report a bill that will cover the wishes of the Chicago people. Mr. Hitt ex- plained to the committee what the Chi- cago people desired. He stated that Chicago and the State of Illinois were willing to conform to any changes that might be'Tnade in the bill in the House. Concerning the Government appropri- ation of provided for in the bill, Mr. Hitt said that the representa- tives of Chicago had not asked for this, and they were willing abide by any reduction in the amount that might be dQ. There seemed to be a disposition on the part of the opponents of Chicatfo as a site for the fair and of the oppo- nents to the holding of the Exposition, to cut out this appropriation. The Chi- cago people would be perfectly willing to agree to this if it were accomplished. The fact that the money pledged to Chi- cago had been secured under a corpora- tion chartered by the State of Illinois, should, said Mr. Hitt, be recognized. The fair itself the representatives of Chicago preferred to hold under a na- tional charter. Concerning the commis- sion of 100, Mr. Hitt said that they pre- ferred that half of its members should be nominated by the Governor of Ilir- nois and half by the mayor of Chicago. They also preferred that the two com- missioners from each State should be of the two political parties Mr. Springer spoke briefly on the Gov ernment appropriation. Before taking any action on this matter, he thought it would be well to ascertain just how much money was needed and then make ;he appropriation conform to that. He offered a resolution requesting the Sec- retary of the Treasury to furnish the committee an estimate of the cost of the buildings necessary for the Government ixhibits, thecostof placingthe exhibits in the buildings, and the -cost- of their are and safe return to the places where they belong-. This resolution was passed and the committee adjourned. AH EXTENSIVE STEAL.

BISMARCK, N. D., Feb. best parliamentarian in the Legislature says every measure pa ssed by that body is il- legal. The ground for this startling proposition is in the organization of the legislative assembly. The Governor convened the Legislature November 19, as provided in section 17 of the schedule of the State constitution, which said that the Legislature should convene for the purpose of electing two United States Senators. The said section says nothing about any other business than the election of Senators. The Legisla- ture, however, after electing Senators took up its regular work and proceeded as in regular session. A further mistake was made when the Legislature met in January that it did not reorganize and enter upon a regular session. Now it is neither special nor regular. Credit or or Debtor Not to Hun Now.

A' heavy wave swamped the boat and one seaman was drowned The others managed to cling to the upturned boat until rescued by the Ems. The attempt to take the men off the Hebe was then abandoned The Hebe showed no sijrts of distress and was riding the waves well. The men were moving about freely as if free from fear of disaster.

Stein- way has written a letter to Mr. Otto Young, of Chicago, charirman of tbe sub-finance committee of the World's Fair, in which he says: "Should the bill just passed in the House of Representa- tives locating the fair of 1890 at Chicago, also pass the Senate and be approved by the President.
