"California and Whitesboro is made
public. The inspectors find that Cap-
1 tain Liebeg of the Whitesboro went
below on the night of the accident,
leaving the second mate, an unlicensed
officer, in eharge, and it was due to his
want of knowledge that the collision

ce) in charge, and his license as a mas
ter and pilot is suspended for thirty
days. Captain Ackley of the State of
California is exonerated from ail blame.

personally and supplemented by a
written communication, which the
founder of the institution has accepted.
It Is understood that at the end of the
scholastic year President Jordan's con
nection with the college will cease. The
" reason given for the resignation is that
Senator Stanford has for some time been
rather dissatisfied with the manner in
which Jordan has managed the univer
sity affairs. When he returned from
abroad six weeks ago he summoned the
President to a conference at bis Palo
Alto . residence. He indicated the
changes be desired, but Jordan resented

A number of foreign commissioners

Henry C. Ives, head of the art depart
ment of the World's Fair, has had a
cloth placed over Anderson'B picture of
"Woman Taken in Adultery," which,.

exhibit, but which the French exhibitors
gave representation to in their collection
Herr Wormith, the Imperial German
Commissioner, said the other day, refer
ring to the report in late dispatches that
Emperor William had finally decided to
come to the fair, that he had no ofticial
advice to that effect, but would not be
surprised if it came to pass, as the Em
peror was a great traveler and had taken
a deep interest in the fair.
The formal opening of the electricity
building, which has been so long de
ferred, took place one night last week.
The feature of the display was the un
veiling and lighting of the big Edison
tower erected by the General Electric
Company. This shaft is situated in the
exact center of the building, and repre
sents the highest achievement of the in
candescent lamp. It extends into the
grand arch formed by the intersection of
the nave and transent. reaching ahehrht
of about 100 feet. The methods used in
construction have resulted in showing a
perfect column as though the entire shaft
were hewn from one massive block of
stone. It springs from the roof of a col
onnade surrounding the base, and the
entire interior is strewn with thousands
of incandescent lamps as many lined as
the Western sunset. The colors are ar
ranged by mechanical methods, capable
of being flashed in harmony with tiie
strains of music. The column' is crowned
with a well-proportioned replica of an
Edison incandescent lamp, formed from
a multitude of pieces of prismatic crys
tals. Upward of 80,000 of these beauti
ful jewels are strung on a frame, and are
all lighted from the interior by a large
number of incandescent lamps. The. ef
fect produced is marvelous, and can only
be appreciated when seen.
Montana's famous solid silver statue
of " Justice " was unveiled in the mines
and mining building the other day. It
iB the statue for which the actress, Ada
Rehan, stood as a model, and by so do
ing created much contention among her
sisters of the profession. The unveiling
of the statue was the event of the day
at the White City, and the great build
ing in wmcn me statue sianus was
thronged with people eager to see the
magnificent work of art. While the
crowd was assembling, the Cincinnati
band played national airs. The open
ing address was by Major Martin Mc
Ginnis of Montana, who spoke in glow
ins; terms of the brilliant future before
that State, of her untold wealth, of the
enterprise ot her citizens and her won
derful natural resources. When he fin
ished, Mrs. Richards of Montana
stepped forward, and, taking up a small
silken cord, gave it a gentle pull, and
the Stars and Stripes which enfolded
the silver image of "Justice" fell away
and exposed the statue for the first time
to public gaze. The crowd gave vent to
wild cheers, while the band played
"America." When the applause died
away, Hon. I. M. Quinn, editor of the
Butte Miner, made the closing address.
He spoke of the statue as a work of art,
of how it came to be made, and how it
represented the wealth, enterprise and
artistic taste of the citizens of that
State. At the close of the exercises
the Montana Commissioners entertained
their friends and a large number of ex
position officials and the representatives
of foreign nations at luncheou.
June 1 closed the first month of the
exposition. Although the weather and
the general impression that the fair is
not finished have affected th attend
ance, the average has not been as high
as the governing officers of the fair ex
pected before . President Cleveland
pressed the button May 1. There is no
denying that the treasury department
of the fair is pressed for money, al
though the banks, which are represented
in the local corporation, stand ready to
advance money at any time to tide the
exposition over; but money is owing to
the contractors and employes, and the
former find much difficulty in getting
quick and full payment of their claims.
Treasurer Zeeberger is compelled to
resort to all kinds of excuses for putting
the contractors off, but some have been
waiting two months after the contracts
have been completed and their vouchers
passed. There will be a severe policy of
retrenchment in all departments of the
fair beginning next month. The dis
chargeof 2,000employes is contemplated,
and even Major Handy, who deals with
the press representatives of the world,
is now preparing a detailed statement
of passes given with a view to a heavy
reduction in the list. Ex-President
Baker of the exposition, who is of the
special committee investigating the
press matter, thinks that the press of
the country has done more harm than
good to the fair and should not be
treated liberally. Before the opening
the enthusiasts connected with the fair
talked about an average daily attend
ance of 100,000, but that number has
only been reached twice the opening
day and Memorial day, Special fete
days and single-fare excursions from
distant points will swell the crowds for
the next four months, but the European
patronage is not being relied on to any
great extent in figuring up prospective
receints. For the month of Mv it can
only be said that the fair has not much
nere than paid the opening expenses.
