Bv a recent decision acting Secretary
Grant by inference held that the World'
Columbian Exposition is a private and

question with some people bow

President named the Commissioner and
why Secretary Foster haa been paying

Fair Commissioners, who went abroad
in the interest of the exposition. , As
sistant Secretary Grant' decision came
about in this way: There haa been some
complaint that the building erected
were not safe, and the Chicago people

a friendly feeling for Chicago or the fair.

of War to detail a corps of engineers to
Inspect the building. The Commission
ers thought a report by such a corps
would have more weight than ii it were
made by private engineers. In replying
to the request Secretary Grant stated
that Section 1224 ot the Revised Statutes
forbade armv officer from performing
work of any kind for private persons or
