The Nebraska editor who ore "doing" the
great northwest under the leadership of the
CaI'ITAL City Couitisn man nre evidently
having a grent time. Tho inannger 1ms been
too busy looking after other people' comfort
to tend tho Couhieu nny but the briefest
statements of their going mid doing, but
the following from tho Denver Acw tells of
their first stop: "The moulders of Nebraska
public oplnlon.that state's gigantic brain pro
duct and her fairest of ladles nro honoring
Denver with n visit. Yesterday tho after
noon Union Pacific train brought In two car
load of pencil pushers and their ladles, in
charge of Clarence Brown, tho young and
handsome advertising manager of the Union
Pacific, and Chairman Wessel of the Ne
braska press northwestern excursion. As tho
train rolled into tho Union tlvfiot, Frank Sem
pie, chairman of the local reception commit
tee, wearing one of his most gracious smile,
bid the Nebraska editors n cordial welcome.
Mr. Semplo had prepared a How of reason and
a flood of wit, but friends interfered and the
Nebraska editors were spared tho pain. The
party, numbering sixty, were tendered luxu
rious accommodations by tne union racnic
and wero occupying two cozy, comfortable
buffet cars stocked with substantial and del
icacies so abundant in Nebraska. The party
made permanent quarters In the earn, where
every comfort and convenience was afforded
and the most glowing eulogy upon the Denver
hotel accommodations would not induce tlieni
to change their abode. The excursion, w hlch
will cover twenty days, headed Irom Omaha
and Is bound for Oregon, British Columbia
and la general good time. The ciowd is a
jolly one, having the upearance of well-fed
high-toned journalists, with wives, Maters and
daughters higher toned, and better fed. They
reflect credit upon Nebraska and Omahu,
which is in Nebraska. Last evening was
spent in seeing Denver by gas and electric
light and In tho newspaper man's usual habit
of church attendance. All the scribes with
the exception of tho Omaha contingent wero
surprised at Denver s greatness, but It is un
becoming for an Omalia man to be surprised
at anything, this or tho otlur side of Omaha.
To-day tho party will be taken over the loop,
returning this evening, and tomorrow morn
ing they leave for Salt Lake. Besides good
wearing apparel the excursionists aro clo:hed
with a huge red badge symbolic of the color
they propose to fresco the great west. The
badge acta in a dual capacity, first as a sym
bol, secondly as a card of admission to tho
good graces and hearty welcomes awaiting
them from the towns they honor with a visit.
Denver maks her best bow to the Nebras
kans and while they nro in tho city, in Monte
Cristo vernacular, the world is theirs."
After the above was put on the printer's
copy-hook the following telegram was receiv
ed frotu"the old man," dated Pocatello,Idaho,
July 14: "So far so good a liner time than
fondest anticipations governor's reception at
Cheyenne drive over city and banquet ar
rived at Ogdcn Thursday city all decorated
carriages at depot banquet in the after
noonreception and ball at night left for
Bait Lake Thursday night in special met at
depot by reception committee drove over
Bait Jjike excursion to Parley's canon first
train over the line went to the laku lieoch
enjoyed bathing governor's reception in
evening now en route to Portland."
And here comes a bundle of Ogden papers
with glowing accounts of the reception in
that city. Tho following Is extracted from
the Commcrcfaf:
"Tho editors wero met nt the depot by the
reception committee, nnd citizens who took
with them n score or more carriages and a
few minutes later wero being driven in all
directions about tho city and given on oppor
tunity to breathe, tho fresh tiiouuUiin air and
rest up from their long journey Tho visitors
were lauded at tho Broom later in tho day
where at noon they were Invited to sit down
to an elegant repast. In the afternoon tho
carrloges were again called out and the visit
ors were driven up the Ogden canon, where
tbey ient n couple of Iioujs most enjoyably.
Many of the ladles of the party, as well as
the gentlemen, had never seen a mountain
canon and hero they found one of the grand
est, most picturesque canons in the Wasatch
mountains. The editors, many of them, took
considerable pains to collect Information con
cerning tho resources of tho country. They
wero all generous with their praise for tho
manner in which they had been received. The
ball given during tho evening was a grand
affair. The large east room of tho city hall
was used by the merry waltzers and tho elite
of the city was present. As it was known
that thu excursionists had to leave tho city
early, the dancing began eailym the even
ing. Tho editors with their wives and daugh
ters mingled with the citizens and their fami
lies, ami whirled away tho hours In the most
pleasant manner. Most of the city ofllclals
and members of tho chamber of commerce
added dignity to tne occasion by their pres
ence. Tom Richardson, on behalf of the peo
ple of Ogden, made a short address, in which
be expressed the pleasuro the people felt in
having the Nebraska PresB Association as
their guesU; that they apologized for lack of
preparation for their better reception, regret
ted the fact that their visit must be brought
to a close so suddenly, and invited all to re
turn and stay a week. L. Wessel, Jr., of the
Nebraska association, responded briefly. He
assured the people of Ogden that the members
of the Nebraska Press association would al
ways remember the many favors and courtes
ies extended them by the citizens of this city.
Before the party left for the traiu, J. 8.
Uoagland of tho Lincoln Stat (Journal made
a stirring address in behalf of the association.
He referred to tho fact that in Nebraska corn
was king, but Ogden had for its support
many and varied Industries, being an agri
cultural, mining and railroad center. He
predicted that Ogden would soon bo a big
ity. He spoke of the beautiful scenery and
the many natural advantages by which the
city was surrounded, He referred to the nu
merous railroad facilities and predicted that
Ogden would bo th j great railroad center of
tho west. Ho thanked the people of Ogdon
for their hospitality, and closed by proposing
threw cheer for Ogden, which wero given
with a will, At the close three cheers wero
given for the Nebraska editors, and tho hour
for the departure of tho train approaching,
the ball was brought to a close."
The Ogden Slanthml had a three column
account nf tho afTalr, from which the follow
ing report of tho speech of the Coumkh'h
"old man" is taken:
"Mr. Wessel said: 'Ladles, gentlemen and
friend, I think wo can call you f rlcnds.for in
the few short hours wo have been with you
you have shown yourselves as such, Wu
shall always feel grateful for tho treatment
you have extended to us. We novo enjoyed
tho ride over your and appre
ciated tho drive to your scenic canon nnd this
evening we certainly apprcclato this receji
tlou. As far as the Nebraska Press associa
tion is concerned Ogden will always have a
warm spot in tho heart of each member. We
leave suddenly and icgretfully, for wo have
just received word that our train will leave
at 10:30. Wo had been In the hope of spend-,
lug the time with you until midnight at nny
rate, but we must leave,' A voice, 'Salt Lake
is In a hurry to seo the editors ' Mr. WesHel
continued, 'In behalf of tho Nebraska Press
association i exieuu to you our nenmesi
thanks and wish for your beautiful city
tho prosperity It deserves.'"

The Ogden Union tells of the release of one ;
"One of the most interesting incidents con
- . . . . I
nected with the visit of the Nebraska Press
association to Ogden yesterday, was the send
lug of n message by the Chamber of Com
merce to tho TWtatne tit Omaha, by a carrier
pigeon. The excursionists have quite n num
ber of the birds wiih them, which they use
to send communications back from tho im
portant points they visit. The uses which
are made of these birds mid their intelligence
as to directions nod locations aro too well
known to need n description.
It had been arranged beforehand to scud
the bird to Omaha from the Broom hotel, so
long before the time set for tho winged mes
senger to start, quite a crowd had gathered
to witness the stait. Lady Patterson, that
was tho pigeon's name, Is n beautiful bird and
a fine representative of tho species; she was
brought from her quarters nt 3 o'clock and
tho following message in n neat little roll was
uttached to her neck by a dainty ribtxm:
'Ooiien, Utah, July 10, 18S0.
We thoroughly appreciate tho presence of
tho Nebraska Press association in our city.
The Territory of Utah sends greetings to the
Stntx of Nebraska, ion havo the commer
cial metropolis of the valley and we aro the
commercial giant of Utah.
Signed S. M. Pjieshaw,
President Chambtr of Commerce.'
The bird was taken over to tho city hall
grounds and turned loose. Lady Patterson
was In no hurry to jump at conclu
sions In relation to directions, so slio look
ed around at the different points of tho coin
iwihh before starting. At first she walked
around on the ground mid then flew to the
roof of tho city hall. She surveyed the sur
roundings for quite a while, and then spread
ing her wing' nrose and struck out directly
east, The spectators watched her as far as
possible and it was found that she went di
rect for Weber cai on.
Tho bird left hei eat 8:30 o'clock and will
arrive in Omaha at 0 a. in. tomorrow. Tho
meffngo will bo delivered to the Tribune,
which will immediately telegraph tho news
of tho safe arrival of Lady Patterson. As
Omnha Is something more than ono thousand
miles from Ogden tho bird will travel at the
rata of seventy miles un hour, if sho mokes
tho time predicted.
ThoofTairwos Interesting and serves to
show how intelligence and physical endurance
oven in the feathered trlbo can bo utilized for
the benefit of mankind,"
A special dispatch dated, Ashland, Oregon,
on Thursday says: "The Nebraska press

zens in carriages and taken to the Oregon ho

the Baldwin theater. When the two were

the audience for their kindness, and then raid
gracefully that she could not take It ns a trib

Concerning Rudolph Arouson's reported In
tention of starting a Casino in Paris after the
plan of. the New York Casino, Chas A. Byrne
write! "Quito a stress was laid on the Idea
of u'rOof garden, nnd tho notion Is given out
that It would boa great novelty in Paris.
The projector seem to forget that the oeii
olr cu'en cliMitonU furnish all the mateiial
of this sort that Is wanted. Iu New York
they havo not a single open-air concert of
magnitude duriug-tho evenings, and there
fore tho i oof garden of the Casino U n wel
come resort. But thero are more serious con
siderations than this, for the basis of the en
terprise would have to be a first-class comic
opera entertainment. Purls already has eight
"i1"" ",,r' "'""' "' ' j '."
com c opera theaters, and tho managers are
lu dispalr there at having no new comic op
eras to produce. Lecocq, tho principal com
poser, has been making failures. Planquette
is wiittu out, and Chussuiguo writes pretty
poor stuff, as witness 'Nadjy,' lu which all
that remained of Chassnlgiiii was n song and
a finale. And finally, the receipts of Purls
theaUl'4 me ridiculously behind ours. Iu the
midst of Sarah Bernhurdt's great success of
Theodora' tho receipts were on an average
of 02 ,000 francs n mouth. That was consid
ered phenomenal. It Is about $12,000 for the
month, or a great deal less than what the Ca
sino is now playing to here. Comic opera
tlieaters In Paris aro very luck if they ploy to
from $5,000 to tO.OOO u month."

Tho exhibition game of lacrosse played by
the Lincoln and the Semmons clubs nt the
bull pork last evening attracted three or four
hundred spectotor,many of them ladles.Only
one goal was mode, which was won after a
long aud stubborn contest by the Llncolns.
The feature of the game was the ploying of
Fitzgerald of the winning team. He made
some beautiful long throws, almost from goal
to goal, that mndu the spectators shout with
delight, lilsmtful dodging and recovery of
the ball was a sight good for sore eyes, ami
tho enthusiastic crowd broke out lu regular
base ball howls. Brydon also made several
good throws and hard ploys and cmno in for
a share of the applause. The game was excit
ing from start to finish and thoroughly stirred
uptbe enthusfasn of the on-lookers, ninny of
w horn hardly knew what to exjiect. The next
gome, now that people hove had a tasto of It,
will probably draw a bigger crowd yet, al
though that of last evening must havo been
gratifying to the boys. Ono thing tho la

Tennyson is described at Mng very angry
at the recent throwing upon the market of
iiie.iJ3.oisoine oi his earlier works, to
gether with original edltlont containing inter
lineations by his pen. That very Intimate
frieiuU to whom those wero given should
have disposed of them for filthy lucre is a
queer vagary of Uritlsh taste. It Is said of
the Tennyson of to-day: "His tendency to
shrink from proximity to the madding crowd
is well Known, tven tne queen has not such
n dislike for casual human kind as his the
jioet laureate, who, it Is well known, gavo up
the loved abode of many years because it was
approachable by asscrs-by. His horror of
intrusion upon his privacy is peculiarly
evoked by this handing nbout of his manu
scripts, on which are set forth many evi
dences of his innermost self-coinmunlngs. He
has token the best jxwsible means to prevent
his memoirs being written, keeping no record
of his correspondence, much less n diary.
'When I am dead,' he said to n friend permit
ted to join him in the companionship of a
pipe, 'I will toko good cure they shall not rip
mo up like a pig.'"
A curiosity show in New York is a fan val
ued at $250. No matter how closely It is ex
amined the sticks seem to be fringed with
rilmymid costly lace. But what looks like
laco Is human hair. It it split and woven to
flue thnt it nods before the brenth like swan's
down. It Is a beautiful thing, but there ore
few places to which one can carry a 250 fan.
