World's Fair Commissioners.
The world's fair commissioners
eld a meeting in Omaha yesterday,
luring which plans were accepted
for the Nebraska building at
A resolution was presented and
adopted requiring the successful
architect to furnish an acceptable
bond that the building would not
cost over $15,000, the amount which
the commissioners had appropri
ated for building purposes.
The plans, as submitted by
Jlenry Voss, provide for a two-story
building, built in the old colonial
Myle, with porticos front und rear,
the front portico to be supported by
four Corinthian columns, sur
mounted by u gable bearing in
ornamental scroll the name
The first story provides for an ex
hibition hall K)x5K) feet, postoflice,
check room, commissioners' oflice,
commissioner general's private
office and reception and toilet
The second story provides for an
exhibition space of the same dimen
sions as on the lower floor, together
with smoking and reading rooms
for gentlemen and sitting mid
toilet rooms for ladies.
The building, in conformity with
other world's fair buildings, will be
finished on the outside in stofT or
artificial stone, this being the
cheapest and at the same time the
most effective finish.

MAD RUSH FOR THE LAND.
What Was Lately a Wilderness Is
Now a Place of Much Bustle
and Activity Descrip
tion of the
The Cheyenne and Arapahoe res
ervations were opened, according to
President Harrison's proclamation,
for settlement yesterday. Follow
ing is a partial account:
Promptly at high noon Governor
Seay, stationed in the watch tower
of Kl Reno, dropped the signal flag
and the battery belched forth a peal
of thunder, glorious news to the
waitiug throngs, and the wild race
began. How they did go through
the pouring rain, up hill and down
hill, through the little rivulets that
threatened to be torreut9 before
night. No trouble of any sort, no
disturbances, occurred ou the line
of the opening. About 6,000 people
made the race from west of El
Reno, as many from KingMsher, 7,000
from the line of the Wichita reser
vation west of Minco, 3,000 'from
Rover, as many front Ilennessy and
ibout as maay as all of these in
small squads all along the line
from the Cherokee strip, on the
north, the Pan Handle of Texas on
the west, and the Kiowa Indian res
ervation on the south.
A special train over the Choctaw
road from Oklahoma dumped a
load at the Rock Island crossing a
few moments after noon. The
crowd from Kl Reno, which had a
town organization completed,
reached the land at the same time.
The site was black with men within
half an hour after the opening.
It was a lucky thing for many
boomers that the wait on the bor
der ended to day. They had gone
to the front with scant supplies and
stood it as long as they could.
Around the border of county It yes
terday men went, gun in hand, de
manding that those who had pro
visions should sell them. A light
rain falling when the start was
made deprived the sctne of a pic
turesque character, but it did not
A riot occured in front of the
Oklahoma City land office at the
hour of opening to-day, and n num
ber of people were injured. At 12
o'clock Register Leach announced
that no lines! would be recognized,
and the first person to get in the
door would have the first tiling und
others in mccession as they arrived.
This precipitated a wild rush and in
a few moments hundreds of men
and women-were engaged in a dis
graceful scramble, lighting, pulling
and trampling on each other, and
for a time it seemed as though
many would be killed. One man
was struck on the head with a revol
ver and badly injured, but he re
mained in the ring and got the
eleventh filing. He had been third
in the line, but sold his place for
$-iJ this morning.
Miss Carrie Sorenson, a clerk in the
United States land office here was
in the crush and by the aid of a
couple of friends succeeded in get
ting a filing on the quarter section
of land adjoining Arapahoe, the
county seat of G county, on the
north. She says her experience in
the crush was a terrible one, and
will be long remembered. On every
side men were pulling, hauling
swearing, striking and nobody was
respected. She was pulled and
pushed and crowded until almost
ready to faint, but escaped without
injury. A woman near her had her
clothes torn to pieces. One man had
his head cut open with a blow
from a revolver and blood spurted
over everybody near him. The win
dows of the land office were smashed
in and other damage done.
The area of the Cheyenne and
Arapahoe reservation, opened to
day, is much larger than is general
ly supposed. It would make two
Oklahomas or five Rhode Islands.lt
contains 4,000,000 acres. After the
Indian allotments are taken out,
there will remain 3-n 10.000 acres, or
enough to give 'M) acres each to
22,000 settlers outside the townsites.
The best lands have been taken by
the Indians and many of the boom
ers will be sorely disappointed in
the character of their lands when
they attempt to cultivate it.
