A year or two ami it was tho general
MioiiKht that whllo tho ChleaKo fair was
toboKrent In all MiIiiks niaterlal In Its
buildings, its machinery, Its Industrial ap
pliances and products It was not to bo
rich in tho lino arts. Tho theory was that
AmerlcA hasn't enough art of her own to
mnko a bin show with, and foreign artists
would exhibit only sparingly. Well, tho
display of foreign works Is considered the
most complete that has ever been made,
whllo tho American exhibit is a revolution
to many people who have not appreciated
Uio strides which tho line arts am making
In this country. Never before has Micro
been such a allowing of American art for
American Artists have anally established
A distinct school of their own. Of course
our painters mid sculptors Imitate more
or less ono or other of tho Kuropoan
schools, but they nro gradually evading
tholr distinctive method. After this year
It probably will not bo denied anywhere
Mint there is mi American school of paint
ing, and one of which Americans may well
As to the foreigners, their displays nro
truly magnificent. Of course tho French
do not show ns many pictures and statuary
as they did nt their own great exposition
four years ago. Nor are tho llrltlsh artists
as well represented hero as they were at
Paris. Hut tho Oermium nro hero in
splendid form, and they were scarcely
known at all at tho 1880 exposition. Several
other nations nro doing better at Chicago
Minn they did at Paris, and with n single
exception Mm representatives of all
the art nations asked for more space than
could lie Assigned them, the exception be
ing In the case of Mexico. Inasmuch as
tho spneo In this Art palace Is much larger
than was ever before devoted to tho same
purpose in an international exposition,
and there was such demand for this space
that every nation but one has found It
necessary to economlre room by sending
snly the U'st of its works, it follows Inev
itably that this is the greatest interna
tional Assemblage of line arts over known.
Foreigners ns well ns Americans are
imazud nt tho progress in nrt mado In
Chicago itself. It is a fact not generally
known that Chicago is rapidly liecotnlng
i center of literature and of publishing,
ind of art ns well. It has several success
ml art schools, with thousands of studonts.
Just now It it finishing, on tho sitooftho
jld exposition building, iu the heart of tho
:lty, a permanent Art palace to cost about
1700,000, nnd to bo this summer a theater of
tho World's fair congress. Tho president
it this art instltuto is Charles L. llutcliiu
ion, n banker nnd money-maker, who still
loves art and knows it. The chairman of
its nrt committee is another business man,
J. II. Dole, nn elevator owner. Though a
more merchant be has done more than
my other man to raise tho standard of art
tnd public appreciation thereof in tho In
terior of America. Tho best proof of his
rare judgment is found in the fact that
many of the paintings which ho formerly
brought Into prominence by displaying
thorn in tho Chicago expositions nro now
:laasod among tho famous pictures of tho
world and aro given pronilneut places In
tho Columbian art palace. Mr. Dole and
other pioneers in tho Held of nrt education
have found that tho masses of our people
bnvo tho nrtlstlo Aspiration in high degree,
tml that tho almost universal lovoofart
In America is suro to bear fruit, sooner or
later, not only In general culture, but in
tho production of masters and master
pieces. Kven now foreign visitors aro dis
covering that art is ascendant in our cen
ters of population, nnd that It is growing
hi tho country as well as iu tho cities. Mr.
Dole, who has done so much for nrt in Chi
cago, tolls mo ho often overhenrs farmers
sad mechanics commenting oil pictures
while walking through tho galleries, and
is surprised to find that they aro familiar
with the characteristics of tho various
schools, that they know tho famous pic
tures of tho year and are quite familiar
with nil current nrt matters.
Foreigners who come to Chicago expect
ing to find hero n now, raw town that still
savors of the prairies and tho backwoods
am Humrlscd to find it ft center of art cul
ture. They nru amazed, in tho first place,
at the artlstio Aspiration which led these
Chlcagoaus to tho adoption of tho plan
that nroduced at Jackson nark tho finest,
most magnlllcent architectural display the
world has over seen. They aro surprised
and delighted with the number nnd the
biauty of thslr pieces of heroic statue ry,
Tilth which Mm grounds, building" and
walls of tlm "xpoftltlnu nro cmholllshrd.
It Is Indeed nsuriirUn to Mini hero In Mm
new west not only Architectural achieve
ment which eclipses all olforts of ancients
or tandems, but oriiameiitat Ion on a ncaln
mine vast and costly Minn wns oier before
attempted In an International exposition.
Ami when, finally, our friends from across

aro surely del eloping a school of their dm u,
Mia conclusion Is Irresistible that art Is of
somo cousequenco and promise In tho wost
Art in the west will gain sti Immense
Impetus from Mm fair. Many of Mm noble
paintings and statuary now In Mils pnlnco
nrs to remain Iu Chicago Indefinitely, A
imteworty exhibit Iu Mm foreign section Is
a collection of arts from ancient llreek

nud sent huro as a special compliment to
America. After the doors of tlm exposl
tlon are closed this tungnlllccnt collect Ion
Is to bo pruscutcd to Mm Chicago Art
No decision has been reached as to the
permanency of tho Exposition Art pahuc.
It would seem it pity to tear It down, for It
Is one of Mm most beautiful buildings In
Mm world (ireclan Ionic of tlm most re
lined typo. Unlike tlm other buildings
here It was Ulllt to stand. It Is practically
lire-proof, Tlm main walls aro of brick
covered with stair, and tlm roof is of Iron,
steel and glass. All the stairways aro of
Iron. Tlm cost of Mm building was more
than 7(H),(KX), and It Is to bo Imped a way
may bo found to preserve It from Mm gen
eral destruction which Is to follow th
closing of Mm gates hero next fall.
One could only guess tlm (nmmerclal
valuo of tho art treasures which tlm palace
now contains, It woulil bo as easy to say
live hundred millions of dollars as one
hundred millions or llfty millions. No
one knows or can know, hi fact, him
dreds of tho works shown hero aro price
less. Three paintings alone have been In
sured for $107,000, and another Is valued at
(70,000. Tho exhibit sent by ono of the
minor Kuropoan countries wns Insured for
tSO0,000. Ono loan-collection, containing
1W) pieces, and bung In tho adjoining
rooms in tlm cast pavilion, has an Intrinsic
value running into tlm millions. It Is n
collection of foreign masterpieces owned
In America, and Includes allthoillustrloiiu
Hiunes during Mm last century Millet,
llouheiir, CaroliiH-Doran, Millals, MoIh
soulcr, Alma Tndcina and many others.

About one-third of these masterpieces are
from tho private galleries of Chicago gen
tlemen, and others come from cities far
It may bo Interesting to tho reader to
know how the space Is divided up iu the
Art palace. There was, all told, a wall
space of 200,0110 square feet. One does not
at tlrst grasp the slgiiillcauce of these
tlgures. It Is considerably more than four
acres of wall. The space is equal to that
presented by a bill board llfteen feet high
and nearly three miles long. Though title
Is a tremendous space to be devoted to
such purpose, the foreign government
alone applied for 1100,000 square feet of stir
face, or one-half more than Mm total.
They were given 105,000 square feet, and
the remaining U5,000 feet reserved for
Americans. France, which leads all the
other nations, has nearly as largo a space
as tho United States, or 30,000 feet. (Jer-
many, Orwit Urltaln, Italy, Uelgluin and

i were rejected by tho juries of selection,
Aiut tliererore tlm works wnlcli appear on
tho walls and Moors of the pnlnco may be
taken tus the cream of the studios of ull the
world, Mm very best Mint man can do. The
keen interest of the foreigners In the suc
cess ofthls exhibit did not arise wholly In
love of their art or pride each iu his own
school or country. The fact that Amer
icans now spend nearly as much money for
pictures as all the remainder of the world
together may have had something to do
The great central rotunda of tho art pal
ace is a beautiful spot. Iu the center Is an
heroic llgure of Washington by Thomas
Ball. Around the colossal Washington
are twelve groups of tlgures furnished by
twelve foreign countries. There are
smaller studios in each of the other pavil
ions. There aro In all no fewer than eighty
separate galleries in the palace, ranging
from HO feet sqiiaro to lloxllX) feet. There
nro also 103 alcoves, used chiefly for en
gravings, etchings and black-and-whites,
No Art gallery was; ever moro perfectly
lighted than this one. All the pavilions,
Including rotundas, courts and alcoves,
are lighted from above, and the modula
tion of this natural light Is simply ideal.
Tho lighting of tho palace at night has
been of itself a work of art, nud the splen
dor of the Art galleries at night, under the
soft rays of many thousand delicately
shaded incandescent lamps, is sure to be
onoof the most attractive features of the
exposition. KoiiKitT GtiAVES.

Nkw Yoiik, May 11. This big town is
rapidly adopting tho European standard
iu tho matter of amusements, and the
action of Mm managers of tho spring
(lower show iu keeping tho exhibition,
which held all last week, open on Sunday
is a most significant indication of that
movement. Places of amusement of
various sorts havo long been kept open
on Sundays hero, to ho sure, but tin
(lower show hud tho sanction of society
for it was given under tho "patronage
of 111) ladies and 1 man who belong to
Mint charmed portion of tho community
Time was when society would hardly
havo cared to indorse an enterprise that
depended for its largest single day's re
ceipts on "Sunday oiMjiiiiig," and it is
hardly probablo that tho circle that calls
itself society iu any other American citj
would couutenauco it now.
Tho list of patron ami patronesses is
as interesting for tho names Mint nro not
as those that aro "in it." It includes
Mrs. Astor and her daughter-in-law
Mrs. J. J. Astor, Mrs. Paran Stevens,
Mrs. L. Lorillard, Mrs. Van Rensselaer
Conger, Mrs. William Seward Webb
Mrs. Herman Oelrichs nnd Mrs. Henry
Clows among those with whoso uamo the
big public that is out of society is fa
miiiar. It does not include Mrs. George
J. Gould, or any of tho Rockefellers, or
tho wife of Collis P. Huutitigtou.
Theso families and the families of a
score of other men who number their
dollars by tho million nro not "in so
ciety." Just why tho outsider doesn't
understand. It can't bo becnuso they
mado their monoy iu oil or railroads or
any other commercial enterprise, for
among thoso who aro iu are somo to
whom fortune camo by way of short cut
and fine cut and plug cut tobacco and
mining and hotel keeping nud ull sorts
of plebeian wuys. It is not likoly that
tho Rockefellers would care to bo taken
into society now that it stands sponsor
for Sunday shows, for the Rockefellers
are strict Sabbatarians, but tho other
members of tho Standard Oil crowd,
such us the Flaglcrs, would gladly enter
if thoy could.

friends declare that they would not be

was Edith Kingdon, tho actress, Is not
