To m Pnoru of Nibrasxa: Tha
President of the United States has des
ignated Thursday, the 30th day of the
present month, as a day of thanksgiv
ing and praise to Almighty God for his
oonntless blessings bestowed upon the
people of the American republio daring
the first century of its existence. It
may not be out of place for the under
signed to supplement the same to the
people of Nebraska, for both the nation
and the state have unlimited cause for
gratitude to Him who controls the af
fairs of men and nations for having en
abled them to reach their present ex
alted position in the career of human
progress and enlightened civilization.
The 30th day of April will be forever
memorable, for it is the rounding out of
the first century the nation has Uvea.
It commemorates the year, the day and
the hour when George Washington was
inaugurated as the first President of the
United States. We might almost greet
it in the language of the song, "nan
Mighty Day." The inauguration of the
first President was destined to exert a
potential influence upon human affairs
which was beyond the power of human
foresight to measure. The infant nation
was emerging from struggling weakness
to take a place upon the map of nations,
sod it has now, in the limit of one hun
dred years, become a great power, stand
ing in the front rank among the nations.
Surely there is the most abundant reason
for thankfulness and homage to Him
who doeth all things well.
The people of Nebraska tve special
cause for gratitude to our heavenly
father for the rich blessings he has con
ferred nion ns. Starting from the day
of small things, Nebraska, then
feeble territory, has grown to be a great
commonwealth, a proud member of the
American union. On the day named
let ns render our tributes of homage
and praise to the Most High. Let all
the people rejoice and be glad.
The dawn of the centennial morn'
should be ushered in with the booming
of cannon and the ringins of bells let
the stars and stripes float from every
I respectfnlly but earnestly invite the
people of all creeds and faiths, Chris
tians and Hebrews, Protestants and
Catholics, native and foreign, white and
colored, to sssemble in their accus
tomed places of publie worship and of
fer op their adoration and songs of
praise to His holy name, and invoke
His blessings upon this people and na
tion during the coming century. I in
vite the ministers of our holy religion
to discourse at that time upon matters
relating to the historio event we should
that day commemorate.
At high noon let the bells again peal
out joyous sounds, reminding all that
the first century has ended and another
has bemn. - ..,.,.,.. c
We believe in the snpreme ruler of
the universe, and that his guiding hand
has led us as a nation. It is, therefore,
becoming in us to manifest to the world
oar full recognition of this conviction.
Let the day be given to God, to
country, and to public praise and re
joicing, and let ftU join in the glad ac
claim ol ' Ulory to Uod ana the Migli
est" for the triumph in this land of free
dom, righteousness and peace.
. In testimony whereof I have hereunto
set my hand, and caused to lie affixed
the great seal of the state of Nebraska.

A telegram from Oklahoma City,
Oklahoma, says: The determination of
the Oklahoma boomers seems to grow
greater as the time draws near for open
ing the coveted lands to settlement, and
the United States troops are kept busy
patrolling the country and ejecting im
patient squatters who are unwilling to
wait for the opening day, April 22. Men
are rushing in here with the same, avid
ity that they rush into the booming
mining camp, and everybody seems
afraid that somebody else will get hold
of a better quarter-section than he will
be able to get if he waits. They are
kept moviug on, however, and are not
permitted to pitch their tents and camp.
But the opositioti only seems to in
crease their anxiety, and serious trouble
is apprehended in consequence.
Thousands of homesteaders are camp
ing along the line in Kansas, ready to
rush into Oklahoma at daylight on the
22d, and unless there is a large force of
Uuited States troops and - deputy Jnar
slials at hand to preserve order the
fight for spoils may become a serious
matter. Many veteran boomers who
have been hungering for Oklahoma for
the past five years, and braved the hard
ships of Captain Payne's campaign, feel
that they are eutitled to first choice of
lands, and many assert that they will
have the land formerly located, stall
hazards. They have selected and watch
ed their claims for years, and now, fear
ing that the new comers may get the
best of them, they have become desper
ate. They hold their meetings in the
various camps and seem to have decided
on a plan of action, but just what course
they intend to pursue is not known out
side of their gang. It has been rumor
ed here that these men have banded
together and intend burning the bridges
and trestles on the Santa Fe railroad ou
the night before the opening day, in
order to obstruct the influx of home
steaders, until they cau make ierfect
their claim to the land they desire.
A notice to this affect was sent by un
known parties to the Santa Fe agent,
and n force of detectives are said to
have been brought here by the railroad,
and to hold themselves in readiness to
prevent damage to the company's pro
lerty, and every possible precaution is
being taken. But the boomers say they
do not propose to jeopardize their
chances by allowing a flood of tender
foots to drop in on the land they have
selected. They look upon these lands
as their rights which they say they will
There are already about twice as
many people on the borders as can be
aocommodated with homesteads in Okla
homa, and more are arriving every day.
i'hey are living in tents, .dug-outs,
wagons and every kind of shelter, and
some are campiug out in the open air.
Many of these people represent colonies
from Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas, Mis
souri, and various other states. These
colonies are said to number from twenty
to 500 persons each, and it looks like ail
the world wants to settle in Oklahoma.
I he Santa re road is preparing for the
opening day rush and every available
car on its entire system is to lie put in
readiness for use on the 23d. Many
who can afford it are engaging private
cars for their colonies and are putting
up a naudsome bonns for the purpose of
binding the contract
