In tbe history cf the country west

Louisiana purchase ai made under
Hbe directoin of Thomas Jefferson.
The fifty years that have since
elapsed have been prolific In great
events, but none are more worthy
If note tbao tbe develupeuient that
'has corao during tbe half century
to the Trans-Missouri section of the
republic and especially to the states
of Kansas and Nebraska.
; Tbe undersigned, a committee of
citizens, have been charted witb
the duty of arranging for a semi
centennial celebration of this event.
By both federal and state law the
Sntli day cf May cf each year is de
nted t memorial observations of
the gallant spirits who in their lives
seived their country during the
great war of 1S01-65. That diy
lielng thus devoted to holy pur
poses, it has been thought best to
hold the exercises properly Incident
to the semi-centennial on Tuesday,
r.be 31st day of May. Thus will
conie a proper lescjgnitloo of
Memorial day, and also of the Im
portant fact that the state of Ne
braska received after the great war
a greater porportlon of ex-soldiers
than any other state In the west,
and these soldiers citizens bave
aaded greatly to its developement,
. The Grand Army of the Republic,
which has bud direction of tbe
memorial observances, has been In
the habit for years of detailing mem
bers of the organlztlou to address
the scholars of all schools through
out tbe state on the last school day
prior to the 30th of May, and It
has requested that on the Sunday
preceding that d?te, In all tbe
churches of the state, the clergy
should make fitting reference to
the Incidents of note proper to tbe
day and Inculcate patrotlsm and
rioting sacrifice for the republic.
The committee suggest to tte
Grand Army arid to the clergy that
It would tie more tilting, in the
schools and In tho churches, to call
attention to the fifty years of growth
and prosperity that have come, not
only to the part of it in which our
1 t has b(eo cast, and on Memorial
clay It certainly will be appropriate
that all who address the people,
while giving fitting tribute to those
who served the country and have
passed away, should make like re
ferences to the progress that has
been made during the half century
that will close upon that day
On the 31st day of May, In the
city of Omaha, there will be proper
observance of the signing of tbe
Kansas-Nebraska bill by the presi
dent of the United States. The
detail of the exercise will be pub
lished and the city of Omaha tn
vltes all citizens of the state to Join
In this celebration by local cere
monial if they wish, but preferably
within the limits of the metropolis
of the state.
The committee takes pleasure In
announcing that a son of Nebraska,
who has achieved great distinction
aud prominence by reason of bis
ability titid eloquence lion. Henry
D. Eastbrook, now of New York
will deliver the oration of the day
befitting tbe occasion. It is ex
pected that other speakers of worth
and prominence will recount the
intereslng events of (he Hlty years
that have passed since the birthday
uf the state of Nebraska. Military
and civic parades will also re an
Incident, and the latcbstrlng of
Omaha will be out in hearty wel
coming to all who wlh to glorify
the event or May 30, isst.
The press of Nenraska Is re
quested to public this address, and
so soon as the details of the ohser
vaoces can be decided upon further
communication will be made to tbe
pulbic.
