, Chicago, May 24. When the world's
fair national commlasion met yester
day afternoon, Sir. Hundley of Ala
liama announced that the judiciary
committee was not quita ready. After
receaa the judiciary committee made
two reports, which were made the
apeoial order for this morning. The
najority report upheld the former
mttltude of the national commission
in favor of cloning the gates, and
maid the commi8Hion could not now
take lawful action in the matter. The
Acceptance of the souvenir coins made
the law binding and the commission
could not change it The present rule
adopted by the commission was the
existing law in the matter, and could
not be changed except by a majority
of the vote of the commission not a
rote of a quorum. The majority report
Signed by Messrs. M. Hair and liurton
opined that it was in the power of the
commission to so amend the laws as
to permit the gates to be open on Sun
day. The commission was clothed
with power to act in this matter,
and the United States had now no
statute which compelled the gates of
the fair to be closed on Sunday. It
recommended the stoppage of all ma
chinery and that religious services be
held in the different state buildings.
The commissioners spent the entire
morning discussing the reports in so
crct session. ' Hot speeches were made
by General St Clair, Mr. Burton and
others, but when the noon receis came

The Cruiser Mew York the Fastest
Vessel to the World.
Gloucester, Mass., May ?4. The
cruiser New York, on her official trial,
crossed the finishing line yesterday
afternoon at 1:41, having made the
marvelous speed of twenty-one knots.
This record gives the United States
the fastest armored cruiser in the
world, and the Cramps a premium ofj
1300,000. Even the records of the
famous Make and Blenheim are sur
passed, the former having made only
19.7 knots on her trial trip, when she
broke down, and the latter has never
yet been tried over a measured course.

NEW WABASH EQUIPMENT.
Now Used In Through Passenger
The Wabash bas shot beyond the
mark in its new paesenger trains. Fa
tare trains must be modeled after them
to be considered flret-claes. The trains
are vestibuled throughout and have ev
ery convenitnee known. The coachfe
are seventy feet long and will seatelgnty
passengers. Tne limit of seating ca
pacity has hitherto been sixty-four,
The trains are lighted with Pintscb gas
and heated with steam from thetngine
Kvery car in the trams is provided
with wash-rooms and smoking compart
ments. Thene new trains began running

lie new Chicago-Detroit division of
tne Wabash is completed. Accurate
measurements show it is seventeen
miles shorter between the two points
man any competing line. The ter
minal in Detroit is in the now Fort
si rect depot said to be as complete and
ornate as the Grand Central passenger
station in Chicago. The Detroit depot
will be occupied jointly bv the Wa
bash, the Flint and Pere Marquette, the
Dotiolt Lansing and Northern, and
the Canadian Pacific. The new track
otthe Wabash was laid with great
care. Trains corresponding with the
new ones on the Nlagara'.Falls short-line
are ope rated. This train service is trl
flftlly b9tb wys between Chicago, Boa
ton and New York.
The dcw routes are made up of the
Wabash, Grand Trunk, West Shore,
Filchburg roads. Each furnished a
quarter of the equipments, amounting
altogether to about one hundred
coaches and cars. The new routes are
distinct factors in passenger traffic be
tween Chicago and the seaboard, and it
ii believf d will fairly divide the busi
ness with computitorj. It is also be
lieved the advertisising opportunity
