THE THIES - Pill r ATOLVxilA, SATUltDAY UOitimTG, HAY 2D, 1CZ3. THE PARIS EXPOSITION KANCE AFRAID THAT WE ARB ALSO GOING TO HAVE ONB IN '89. WHERE THE SHOW WILL BE HELD Preparations for the Celebration of the Centenary of the Revolution. Special Correspondence of The Times. Paris, May 14. I understand thai the French Government Isverymucb excited over tbe report that tbe United Stales are going to bold an International exhibition In 1889. If we do this It will of course Interfere a great deal with the success ot the one wblob the Minister of Commerce and the Cabinet are arranging for here In Paris. Aside irom this rumor I am in no position to vouch tor its troth, but one of the secretaries at our legation told me that such a world's show bad been sag - fiested Id several American newspapers tbe Farliezhibltlon is rather heavily handicapped la its " declaration ol principles," that is to say. la the description ot tbe "appropriate manner to oommemorate the centennial year of the French revolution. The year chosen is not universally popular In France and naturally several monarchical neighbors dou't think ranch of that date as a favorable one. The language usea in declaring for tbe exposition is politically barm - less, but It lacks strength ana practical cone - tveness. Listeu : " We will give an exposition," ay our good iriends the French, " which shall not only be a display of tbe most remarkable nrodncts of modern art. industry and science, but aball also present a mart and magnificent tableau of the century itself, of the Iransforma - ttonsaccompllshed during that period, ol the con quests of science over nature; in brier, a resplendent prooi to all that tbe world has en tered on a new era ana ium society is oasea on dogmas founded on reason ana Justice." THE PLAN. There was considerable discussion In tbe Cabl net and among bankers and business men over tbe plans. Tbe one finally adopted arranges for combined action on the part or state, fans and private enterprise. The maximum of expeudl tures has been estimated at 43,000,000 francs. Toward this amount tbe city of Purls will contribute 8,000,000, the State 17,000,000 and the remain ing 18,000,000 are to come from admission fees, sale of material when no longer neeaea and prices paid for concessions for restaurants, cales, etc. The private part of the combination is managed by M. Cbrlstoplile, of the Credit Foncier, which financial Institution will organize a sneclal com pany, tbe shares of which will be taken by mer? chants and manufacturers. Tbe luud thus raised will be used to meet liabilities if the show is not a success, over 21,000,000 francs were lost by the State In 1878, although the city of Paris gave 6.000.000 francs towards that eXDOsltion also. The general idea or arrangement Includes new Structures on tbe Champ de Mars and the Espla nades aes invanaes, aiso me use or tie ratals cte l'luduslrle and the Trucadero. All Dersons who . have ever been In Paris have some knowledge of the Palais de l'lnduslrle. It was built for the exposition of i855 and stands in the Chumps Ely sees, not far from the Place de la Concorde. It is 810 feet long by 358 feet wide, and while of strikine appearance is uot tbe handsomest structure iu Paris by any means. It Is in this building where toe Halon or annual exninnion ol paintings, sculpture, engravings and architectural plans is held. From this palace there will be a passageway along the lovely avenue called the Cours la Kelne and along the Quat Billy to the pretty park and splendid looking Trocadcro. This grand hemispherical structure Is ail that is left except that still unpaid 21,000,000 of Hie exposition ol JS78. it is used partly bs a museum and a public concert hail, in which at least 10,000 spectators can be seated. Tills structure presents a fine sight when all the fountains are playing and when It Is Illuminated from top to bottom and end to end by thousands upon thousands of many colored lights, as it la on wo nignt oi every lain oi juiy. THE CHAMPS DE MARS. Directly across from its river front over the bridge of Jena Is the Champ de Mars. It Is so called after the Campus Murtlus at Borne and is an open space 3,000 teet long and quite 1,500 wide a parallelogram of graveled land, which abounds In historical incidents. It was here the Feast of Federation was held In 1790. The morn - Ingot tbe 11th of July Louis XVI. rode on horseback through tbe place and was greatly moved by the marks of devotlou which the thousands of workmen, busy with pick, spade and hammer, showed hi in. Three days later over 300,000 persons assetnoiea nere to assist at the ceremonies, to bear Lafayette read the oatli which was taken by all the federes and then the declaration of the King to maintain the Constitution decreed by the Natloual Assembly. Shouts of Vive le koi I" burst from every mouth and when the Queen held up her son the people also orled, " Vive la Reine I Vive le Dauphin I" What a mockery ! In a fortnight t here had been a revolt at Nancy and a thousand men were killed, and tiien only a few years later this same crowd had guillotined both Louis and Marie Antoinette. Tuere were other great public ceremonies in tbe Champ de Mara the Fete des Victories, the Fete a i'Eire Bupremes, presided over by Infamous Robespierre; the Fete de la Velllesse and the Distribution of tbe Eagles to his army by the great Napoleon. That was in 1804, the day after his coronation at Notre Dame. There were no ceremonies on the Champ de Mars during the restoration, but on the '271 li of March and the 2d of May, 1831, Louis 1'hlllppe went there to distribute the newly - restored national colors to the army. In June, 1837, fetes were given there In honor of the marriage ot the Duke of Orleans, and tlieu a portion of tbe Chump de Mars was set apart for norse - raclng. In tbe year ISI0 Mme. de Olrardin wrote: "The races on Sunday were favored by superb weather and the extraordinary thing wus that there were nine horses running together,nlne live horses, nluerivals a rareslghtln the Chump deMurs!" But there has not been any racing there these many years, not since the Jockey Club got into Longchamps. The Inst time the vast parallelogram was used was In 1873, when the exhibition buildings covered It. It is used as a drill ground for the uari ison of Paris. At the top of it staiid.s the Military School, an establishment Instituted by Louis XV. in 1751 lor the benefit of the sons of French noblemen without fortune. The edifice has two principal entrances one on the south, facing the Avenue do Lowendal, and one on the Champ de Mars. Napoleon Bonaparte was a pupil In this school. When he became a general he made it Ills headquarters for a while. It Is now no longer a military school, being used almost entirely as a cavalry barracks. Borne light artillery companies are also quartered in It, THE DIRECTORS. Very wisely the Minister of Commerce has de - elded tbat MM. George Berger and Alpband shall have a good deal to do with the preliminary arrangements and final management of this affair of '89. M. Berger has had muohexperlence with world's fairs. He was born in Paris fifty - two years ago. After graduating from the School of Mines he served for a few years on the stnft of civil engineers of the Northern Hallway; then he made several Journeys Into foreign countries for the purpose of adding to his professional knowledge. Next he wrote art criticisms for the Journal des Debate and sometimes lie took grave M. Taine's place as lecturer at the BenuxArts. Ills flratexperlenee In the matter of expositions was acquired In 1887, where he was second lo M. le Play, the engiiiecr - ln - clilef. At the Exposition of 1878 he was entrusted with the organization of the foreign Beet ion. He was president of the Electrical Exhibition ol 1881 and Is now the general manager for France of the Now York Life Insurance Company, of which Mr. H. 8. Homans is general director for the whole of Europe. M. Herger Is a Commander In the Legion of Honor, be possesses a large fortune, Is Independent of all political complications und Is deservedly popular with all classes. M. Alphand has been for many years Chief Engineer of the city of Paris. His Integrity Is unquestioned und he Is actively engaged In all works that redound to the creditor the capital. He Is one of the most obliging men I ever knew In Frencb official circles and is liked by everybody. In the estimates thus far made there haR been no calculation based on the Idea of charging exhibitors lor the space occupied. As yet there has been no decision on this point, but in the contract made with the Credit Foncier the government reserves the exclusive decision of the question. In 1867 and in 1878 space wus furnished gratuitously. All that the exhibitors had to pay was the oosl of arranging their own Interiors. At Vienna, In 1873, exhibitors paid 25 francs per square metre. At Philadelphia the space was free, as was also t lie motive power. At Amsterdam Isolated exhibits were taxed 90 francs und tbe others 45 francs per square metre, and at Antwerp this ground rent run from 10 francs to eo, according to location. 11 sucb a charge is made in Paris In lSMi it is estimated that It will yield about 13,000,000 francs, but It will entail the granting ot a right to exhibitors to sell their ROoas. It, IS nosHlhle that, ft lars - a lntt.erv rrtav also be organized by the State. French iournallsts and snmn nthnra nrA hnrn - Ing a good deal about the proposed construction ot aglgautlc metallic tower thut an engineer by the name of Kltrel has had the temeritv to propose. Babel, If It had ever been finished, would have looked low and squally alongside of the Turls tower of '89. He proposes to build it to a height of nine hundred and ninety feet, entirely of iron, open work ol course, so as to reduce the weight and the surface exposed to the wind It Is to rest on four immense arcades and these alone will be taller than the towers ol Noire Dame or than the cupola of the Western Union building In New York. The top Is to be reached by anelevator; there Is to be a platform, elect No light and all that sort of a thing up there. The total weight Is estimated at twelve million pounds and the cost at $1,500,000. M. Eiffel says lie can furnish $100,000, If the HI ate will chip In the rest. There are supposed to be millions in this tower alTalr. Everybody will go up In It. say these people, but Will they? I doubt It I know I wonX Henry Haynie.

A Frospee That the Crop This Tear Will be Larger Than Ever Before. ' Jersey berries will be in market before the end ot this week and the prospects are tbat the crop will be unusually large. The centres ot the two fruitgrowing districts of the State are at Vinelaud, Cumberland county, and Hammonton, Atlantic county, the quantities of strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and grapes shipped from those places In the busy season being almost Incomprehensible. From Viaeland, one day in June last year, 836 car - loads of strawberries were sent away, while 238 loads were shipped from Hammonton on the same day. Each car cootalned about 300 crates of 82 quarts each, or over 2,300,000 quarts from Vineland aud over 8,000,000 from Hammonton. Less than one - third of the shipments were to and through Philadelphia to Western cities. New York and tbe Eastern cities getting by far the larger portion. The Indications are, the fruit - growers say, that the shipments this year will exceed those of a year ago ten per cent and that the quality of the berries will excel tbat of last year by the same percentage, A personal tour of the great fruit - growing districts, which requirod three days and during which time hundreds of "berry men" were visited, was made last week. Everybody was busy and everybody agreed that they would "begin pickin' 'em about Wednesday, If the weather don't Interfere." Iu the Vineland district are half a dozen small towns with stations on the West Jersey, West Jersey and Atlantic City and the New Jersey Southern Rail roads. The district is about fifteen miles in diame ter, with the city of Vineland as the centre. Tbe Hammonton district is nearly as large and embodies as many towns. The Camden and Atlan tic, Philadelphia and Atlantic City und the New Jer - soy Southern Railroads pass through the district and form outlets for the great quantity of luscious ber ries grown In that section. Nearly everybody In these districts live the whole year on what Ibey earn during the fruit season, the small farmers on tbe proceeds of the Bales and tbe array of pickers on the one cent and ahalf a quart which they are paid for garnering the" berries. During " borry pickin' " thousands of men, women and children do nothing but help gather tbe fruit. In every field a score or more of pickers, mostly women and children, crawl UDon their knees along the lone rows of vines, un mindful ot the hot sun, only anxious to fill as many quart boxes and receive as many enseals ior meir dav's work as oossible. Take the " big dny " of last year, when 4,000,000 quarts of strawberries were picked lu the two districts, aud the bIzb of the army of pickers may be eatlmatod. A very fast picker is able to gather In 185 quarts a day ; good hands average 100, while the geueral average is about 70. Every day wnile the season lasts the pickers go over the same vines ana taKe tun berries wnicn ripened aurmg tue mgui. The fruit - growers generally, unlike the pickers, are intelligent and fairly educated. They or their parents came from Now England, settled in the samlv. scrub - nine wilderness where the "sand - burr" crew aud multiplied and made it " blossom like the rose." Thousands of acres of hitherto use less and almost valueless sand hills have been re deemed. They bought the land for a soug and by bard work made It as productive as the best acres of the State. " We aro going to have the biggest kind of a yield," said one or the largest growers at Hammonton, with a strongly marked drawl. " We do so little work, except during tbe fruit season, that It is all bustle aud ruBh when we are at work. I have about sixty acres of land in fruit; about one - third of it bears strawberries and tbe other two - thirds are cov ered with blackberrr. raspberry and grape vines. We will begin picking strawberries about Wednesday, and there will be little reBt for us until the grapes are garnored." ' How many quarts will the strawberries yield to the aero 7" "There are 100 rows of seventy yards In length to each acre. Kacb row will yield two quarts a day on an average for twenty days. That would be about 4,tiuo quarts as the acres yield. Last season we netted about five cents per quart, after paying the cost of marketing and the commission. A little figuring will enow that we cleared $200 per acre, out or which we had to pay our regular help, the cost of keeping a pair of horses and the other iucidental expenses. It is seldom that all the kinds of fruit we grow yield well the same season. It the strawberries are big tbe grapes are likely to be a failure or the black berries and raspberries are very light, but we are pretty certain to have a good paying crop of one or tno otner, ana arter all it alu't the worst business." The effect of organization among the berry - grow. ers bas been to reduce the profits of the commission merchants three per cent. They formerly took ten per cent of the gross price for the trouble of handling the fruit. The Fruit - growers' Association was formed, many commission merchants became members of It and tbe result is that the middlemen got seven per cent The association ' returns one per cent, to the growers and with the other two per cent saved by the combination furnish dally reports by teiegrapn irom an the markets to tne members, delivering them by men on bicycles every afternoon. This year the commission merchants of Philadel phia are averse to handling the fruit for less than teu per cent and many of tliem have withdrawn or will withdraw from Ihe association unless satisfac tory arrangements are made with the growers. On the other band many of the shippers declare tbat they will not send a berry to any commission man who withdraws from tbe association and It is not outside the range of probability that tlio spirit of the boycott will enter Into the contest before the first week of the berry season bas passed. Some of tbe commission men have their agents at work among the growerB and if they are successful In securing shippers they will let the association members look out tor themselves. A Senator Plays Ball With His Son. Washington Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun. The residents of Lafayette Square were a day or two ago permitted to witness an Interesting game of base - ball from their back windows. The contest took place in tbe back yard oi a United States Senator, and the players were Senator Gorman and his son Arthur. The younger Gorman Inherits his father's love for the national game and Is an enthu siastic ad miror of the sport He has boon a regular attendant at all the professional ball games played bern this season, and recently be became Impressed with the idea tbat he has mastered the secret ot curve pitching. On the morning In question young Gorman was endeavoring to Initiate his father into the mysteries of the curve. Senator Dolph, of Ore gon, and Air.

The fact tbat most citizens of Philadelphia differ with Speaker Carlisle's vtews is no reason why he should not be heard by all wbo can attend. If he is right in the theory that labor of America and Europe should be placed upon equality In wages he Is quite able enough to convince intelligent protectionists of their error ; If he is wrong In bis theory of equality of labor at home and abroad bis arguments will ouly Btrengtnen proieciionisis in tueir iaitn.

The President to day vetoed five private pension bills, three of which originated in tbe House of Representatives and two In tbe Senate. In every case the President gives as the reason for bis veto tbe fact tbat tbe disability upon which tbe pension Is claimed was not contracted nor In any way due to Injuries received in the service. In one case, where it was proposed to grant a pension to a widow on a claim tbat was clearly shown to have been without foundation, tbe President says: " It Is not a pleasant thing to interfere in such a case, but we aro dealing with Denaiona aud uot with gratuities." A Man Who Was Burled Tnrns Up Alive. From the Pittsburg Times. Some years ago a German tailor named Louis Renneberg was found doad, as supposed, In bis bed at Monongabola City.

Chambershurg is trying to have a park. Pittsburg's merchant tailors continue to refuse to sign the schedule demanded by the Journeymen and some of the latter are gradually returning to work. Meanwhile a few of tbe former are sending their work East to be done. The employes of the Pennsylvania Tube Works, at Pittsburg, went on strike on Wednesday because ol tbe firm's refusal to restore a reduction of 10 per cent., which was accepted with tbe understanding tbat It was to be only temporary. John B. Bachelder, government historian of tbe battle of Gettysburg, has callod a cavalry reunion to meet on the field on July 7 next. Govornor Lee, of Vlrgluia; Senator Hampton, of South Carolina, and other distinguished cavalry loaders of the Confederacy will co - operate with the Union officers lu attendance to make the occasion a success. Colonel E. H.

TEE DUST OF DISTINGUISHED KEN TO COVERED WITH MOWERS T0 - DAI. BE SOLDIERS OF DIFFERENT WARS Where the Various Grand Army Posts Will Perform Their Labor of Love. The thirty - five Grand Army Posts of Philadelphia will to - day plant flowers or otherwise decorate the graves ot more than ten thousand soldiers and sailors. These honors are not confined to the heroes ot the war for the Union, but are now extended to the memories of all the brave men, so far as they are known, who battled for the honor and safety of their country In any of the wars in which It has been engaged. The custom of honoring the dead warriors in this country is not original with the Grand Army of the Republic, but had its Inception in the South, among the soldiers of the Confederate Army, in 1866. The Grand Army adopted it in May, 1863, by request ot General John A. Logan, then Commander - in - Chief of the organization. In general orders ha said : The 30th of May, 1868, is designated for the purpose ot strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died In dofense of their country duriug the late rebellion, aud whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churcbyard in the laud. Their soldier lives were the reveille of freedom to a race iu chains and their death the tattoo of rebellion's tyranny in arms. We should guard their graves with sacred vigilance. If other eyes grow dull aud other hands slack and other hearts cold In the solemn trust, ours shall keep It warm as long as the light and warmth of life remain to us. GRAVES OP DISTINGUISHED HEROES. In this city are found the last resting - places of some of the most heroic and distinguished men of the nation.

Near him are Commodores Hull and La Vallette, with Colonel Ulrio Dahlgren to the left and General Hector Tyndale to the right. General Robert Patterson lies beneath a new and magnificent monument, on which are insoribed the deeds of three wars, 1812, 1846, 18G1 ; his son, General Putterson, is interred beside him. In South Laurel Hill are General Zeilin and his son, Lieutenant Zeilin, of the Marine Corps ; Goneral Nagle, who died recently in California; Colonel Peter Fritz, who marshaled most ot tho civic, nremen s and military parades in Philadelphia a generation ago; Captain James, ot that time - honored corps, the City Troop ; Lieutenant Hodgson, killed with Ouster at tho Little Big Horn ; Bear Admiral George C, Bead, Colonel William Davenport, Colonel Theodore De Klynne and Colonel W.

General Cadwala - der, a soldier of several wars, is buried in Christ Church Cemetery, at the corner of Fifth and Arch streuts, as is also General George A. McCall, of the Pennsylvania Reserves. General Baxter, of the Philadelphia Fire Zouaves, lies in Monument Cemetery, Lieutenant John John T. Greble, who wus one of the first Fiiila - delphiuns and one of the first regular army officers to fall in the last war, at Big Bethel, is entombed at Woodlands. General Peter Lyle is in Old Oaks Cemetory. Few men did so much tor the Philadelphia militia before the war as Gonerul Lyle. Major Tucker Cnmpbell, the merchant soldier, lies in Laurel Hill. Colonel A. H. Reynolds, of the Sixty - eighth Pennsylvania Volunteers, is burled at Glenwood. Colonel Tupper is at Laurel Hill. HANCOCK AND M'OLELLAN, General Hancock's grave at Norristown will be decorated by Post 275, of Philadelphia, and Post 11, of Norristown. General McClellan's grave at Trenton will receive attention from Post 275 and the Posts in Trenton. Posts No. 1 and 5, with delegations from others, will assist in the ceremonies at General Grant's grave in New York, Admiral Dupont Post, No. 24, and the Naval Post, No. 400, will send details to deo - orate the grave of Admiral Dupont, at Wilmington. Post 77 will decorate the graves of Revolutionary soldiers at Valley Forge. There is scarcely a cemetory in the city that does not Include within its limits some prominent soldier or sailor. The brave men of the rank and file from this city were the peers of any that served their oountry in any of the wars in which the nation was engaged. At Gettys burg the Philadelphia Brigade was the objective point of tbe attack on the third day's assault, by - Longstreot s entire reDet corps, Due tney remained firm and tho army under Lee was re pulsed. Had they given way the result would have been disastrous to the cause of human freedom and the integrity of tho nation would nave beon jeopardized. WFERE THE POSTS WILL DECOBATE. Goneral D. B. Birney Post, No. 63, will tomorrow decorate the grave of the soldier after whom it is named. Fred Taylor Post, No. 19, will send a detail to Chester county to decorate Colonel Fred Taylor s grave. Goneral Roynolds grave will be decorated by a dotail from Post 71, which boars his name. General E. D. Baker Post, - No. 8, has sent a floral tribute to the grave of the Senator - soldier, in California. The floral docorations for the graves of Generals Grant, McClollan and Hancock are numerous and very handsome The manner of celebration in this city to - duy will be about the same as in previous years. The Tosts generally will form at noon nnd march to the cemeteries to which they have beon assigned, in the principal of which the regular formal exercises will take place. All of these inolude the planting of nowors on tne graves oi tneir comrades, The original custom of strewing flowers is more symbolical and is suggested by the Scriptural teachings, but in a large city it is impracticable, as not a sufficient number of out flowers can be obtained for the purpose. The Grand Army lays particular stress upon the fact that such demonstrations inculcate in tbe young ana rising generation a love of country and cultivates a respeot for horoio deeds by heroio men. Many of the posts will be aocompanied by other socioties and organizations, and in some instances by militia companies. Patriotism Limited by Persecution. From the Milwaukee Journal.
