Senator Kyle, the blonde Popo-I)enio-Rep
from South Dakota had occasion to
lile a treneral answer of "not guilty" in
the Senate on Tuesday. He said that he
did not know what com mi tees he was
going to be placed upon, because he
was absent during the conference, and
while he was gratified that he has been
so well taken cure of by the Republicans,
he denies all guilty knowledge. By
way of avoidance, he also dead with
much force, that the Populists in the
Senate have always held that the Kepuh
Jieuns should controll both the Senate
and the House in harmony with the pres
ent administration. He failed to state
that he voted against the arrangement
of the Populists two years ago, but evi
dently he believes the decision is now
correct, as Mr. Kyle is now in the kwim
in capital letters.

Omaha, May 20lh. When the Nebras
ka Legislature appropriated $100,000 to
coyer the coa of a building uud exhibit
at the Trans-Mississippi Exposition it
was provided that no part of the state
grant could become available until the
stock-holders had paid $.'00,000 into the
treasury of the Exposition. Nearly $."(),
001) of this amount has been received.
Subscribers are ptying promptly. A
call has been issued for 2 ) per cent of
subscriptions and it is expected this will
net a sum nearly if not quite large
enough to render th-i state appropriation
available early in July.
While the law providing for state
commissioners will not become effective
until J'jly it, Governor Holconib will
within . i few days appoint the commis
sioners, who must serve without pay
until July. It is de.;ired that all the time
possible be given the new commisiouers
to aquint themselves with the details of
and to uquire such knowledge, of the
situation as will enable them to act
promptly when the state funds become
available. The Governor is operating
with the Board of Managers and is en
thusiastic over the fair promise of a
great exposition. The interests of the
stale at large will be protected.
As the plans of tne supervising archi
tects are developed the fact becomes
manifest that in architectural beauty
the Trans-Mississippi Exposition will sur
pass anything of its kind excepting the
World's fair. Eminent architects have
lieeii selected to design the great build
ings, as follows:
Agricultural Cass Gilbert, St. Paul,
Art Earues & Young, St. Louis.
t'lecerieity and Mm binury Dwight
Mines and Mining J. J. Humphrey,
Mauufuct ureis and Liberal Arts S. S.
Hpe t:i tori ii m Fisher & Laurie, Omaha
The architects have begun the plans.
The subject of transportation facilities
between the city and the exposition
grounds is being carefully considered.
The streets are level, admitting of rapid
ransit and heavy trains. Three trolley
lines now run to various points of access
to the grounds. The run from Dodge
treet is made in ten micites; fare live
cents. Conditions are such that the
steam railroads can within a few weeks
provide tracks and adequate train service
to meet the heaviest possible demands.
Prospective visitors are assured of cheap
and convenient means of getting to and
from the grounds, a desideratum the
importance of which cannot be over-estimated.
Senators Thurston and Allen are en
deavoring to get the consent of congress
to make available immediately foil, 000
of the exposition appropriation. The re
mainder, $150,000, will be payable July
The work of preparing the grounds is
proceeding rapidly. The fence is practi
cally finished; many trees are being
planted; old buildings are being dis
mantled and large squads of graders are
excavating for the lagoons and lakes.
A scene of great activity is presented.
The Board of Managers of the Woman's
Department has made a formal request
of Governor Holconib to appoint a
woman as one of the state commission
ers. President Wattles has issued formal
invitations to foreign nations to partici
pate in the Trans-Mississippi and Inter

"To tlie Senate and House of Repre

information from our consuls in Cuba

of American citizens in the island are in

Tlie latest report of Consul General

without means of support. I have as

'To that end I recommend that con

Thut made my soul sttind still and hiirk,
To tlie song that culled me home.
And tlie song was not an opera air.

And the voice was not a wonderful one,
Hut the voice, like the song, wan plain
