Since tho opening day of the expo
Hltion, says the Omaha Bee, there have
been numerous banquets Riven, but
none have bw n enjoyed more by the
bidden guests than was the one upon
the Indian congress grounds yesterday,
whore were congregated the 500 simple
and modest children of the mountain,
the plain and the forest.
The banquet was given by Captain
Mercer to tho Indluun’aa an evidence
of his appreciation of the services
which they have rendered since com
ing here to participate In their dances,
sham battles unu other tribal festivi
ties, which have been enjoyed so much
by tho people who have attended the
exposition. Wednesday he ordered a
big, fat steer, two sheep, two hogs, ten
bushels of potatoes, five barrels of ap
ples and 1,000 loaves of bread. This
provision was sent to the Indian
grounds Wednesday night and Sheriff
Ktart/.er of Harp county was pressed
Into service as head chef. He came
and selected Bill l.lddiard as his as
ftlHiani anu me lwo men weiii iu worn.
They butchered the animals and made
ready by preparing to roast the meat
ovr a slow fire. The fireplace was
built Just south of the adobe house of
the Pueblos and the barbecue was
I started. All night long the carcasses
L of the animals roasted, fried and siz
zled over the embers from cords of dry
hickory wood and at 10 o'clock yes
terday morning the meat was pro
nounced cooked to a turn. The po
tatoes were put Into huge pans that,
bad been used for catching the drip
pings from the cooking meat. After
the potatoes were bone to a rich brown
the spread watt ready for the guests.
Over at the warehouse bread was Is
sued to the squaws, arid at uu appoint
ed signal, without waiting for anyone
to say grace, the Indians were called
In, the gates to the grounds were
closed and all the white people driven
from the enclosure, the Indians hav
ing previously told Captain Mercer
they wanted to eat one meal without
being annoyed by spectators. Black
Eugle, a Sioux who at one time worked
In a slaughter house at the Crow
Creek agency, was appointed head
carver and allowed to select his as
sistants. For this purpose he named
Little White Feather, an Oinahan, and
I^ong Hear, an Apache. Knife in
hand, Black Eagle walked up to the
place where the animals were spitted,
assigned one of his men to the sheep,
the other to the hogs and he taking
the beef. (Jeronimo was the first In
dian served. He said be wanted i
slice of beef tongue and wuh given a
large bunk, which he carried away to
his tepee In a tin pall. The tongue
•was garnished with potatoes. Next
came American Horse, who pointed to
the beef brisket, saying It was the
favorite morsel with him. He got a
chunk and plenty of potatoes, after
which Little No Heart, who re
marked that he had always had a
fondness for the rump of a fat
steer. This Indian received a couple
of pounds of meat out from the por
tion indicated, and then came a band
of the Wichltas. They all wanted
mutton. Tokanwana Jim ordered/for
the party and took away a greater
portion of one of the hind quarters.
'ITie Rosebud Sioux selected pork and
Running Wolf, who had been designat
es! as the man to make the choice, took
away with him some fifteen pounds of
Some of the other notables were giv
en the portions which they preferred,
but after that it was something of a
caleh-as-catch-can, the chief carver
and his assistants holding that even
Indians ought not to be particular.
They Informed the horde about them
that every portion of the meat was
prime and mat the time for picking
out. tender morsels had passed. The
judgment of the three men was ac
cepted, and from that time until tho
bones were picked there was less
formality to the carving.
In their tepees the Indians enjoyed
their feast very much, all having
enough, though there was none to
spare, as the capacity of an Indian’s
stomach is an unknown quantity, hav
ing the expanding and contracting
powers taat are supposed to go with a
rubber bag.

The Second Nebraska regiment,
writes a correspondent, will soon be a
thing of the past. The men will scat
ter to the four winds in pursuit of the
avocations they were engaged in when
the president's proclamation of April
22 called them to arms. Six months
has been their time of service. Many
of them go back to their positions va
cated upon their enlistment. Others,
whoso employers were not so patriotic,
must seek for work either In this state
or go where more promising prospects
await them. Some have formed ties
of friendship which will last through
life. Others leave the service soun d
by disappointment of not having got
ten to the front. Hie majority of the
men are satisfied to leave the service,
others prefer to remain, but it Is doubt
ful if they will enter the regular serv
ice. Others will await the reorganiza
tion to see what chance they may have.
The final breaking of old ties will oc
cur soon and the entire command will
bid old Fort Omaha adieu perhaps for
ever. They will have their uniforms
always to remind them of the summer
outing in Chlckamauga park.
Many of the officers and men are suf
fering from Jaundice or “yellow Jan
dera" as they term it. They have
turned aa yellow as magnollans and
their dispositions have not been sweet
ened by the change. Among those
who have taken the popular malady
are: Lieutenant Colonel Olson, Captain
Hayward, Quartermaster Myers, and
Lieutenant Schultz. Lieutenant Stew
art of Company K sick at his home
In Schuyler. Several of the officers
have received their certificates of non
indebtedness from the government and
are correspondingly happy at the pros
pect of securing their money.
Forcing Attention to,
One of Omaha'8 ministers was rutle
ly reminded the other day that when
he gave a marriage certificate to the
contracting parties the document must
bear a ten-cent revenue stamp or It
would eot be legal. The minister re
plied that the government had lost
something over fl on bis work In this
line alone, but was promptly Informed
that the government never lost any
thing, and the parlor In question Is
now engaged In figuring up the num
ber of certificates he has issued since
the law went Into efTect. The officers
at the local revenue office say the de
cision on this particular point was one
of the first rendered and think all the
ministers ought to be fully Informed
of It by this time.
Collector Houtz has decided that the
public has had sufficient time to be
come acquainted with the provisions
of the new revenue law, and will cease
parleying with those who evade the
law through alleged Ignorance of Us
requirements. He has issued summons
to some of the cattle commission men
In Bouth Omaha to bring their books
! to the office that the amount they owe
; thn government on past transactions
muy be footed up and collected. In
these cases the tax Is due on the mem
orandum of sales issued by the com
mission men and which Is accepted by
the banks In lieu of checks. Some of
the firms there have paid the tax with
out question, but others have shown a
disposition to resist.
Clotting Day at tho Ff poult Ion.
October 31st, the time for closing
the exposition, will be Omaha day, and
preparations are making for a great
time. It has been decided that tho
mayor shall issue a proclamation des
ignating October 31 as a holiday and
I calling upon all the people to lay
aside business cares and join In cele
brating the successful conclusion of
the most gigantic enterprise ever un
dertaken In the west He will also
ask the mayors of neighboring cities
to take a similar step, as the comlt
tee has no desire to give out the im
pression that only Omaha Is entitled
to take part In such an occasion. It
is cited that many farms had been
sold and other property Invested In
by eastern parties who had been at
tracted to Omaha and adjacent terri
tory by means of the exposition. For
this reason it Is deemed fitting that
all the people In this section of the
country be invited to Join hands In the
Jubilee celebration. All civic, trade
and secret society organizations will
be asked to close up such business as
they have for that dav and give their
time to making the celebration a suc
cess, and the retailers' association
will be reouested to have all stores
dosed at noon for the balance of the
Mu' Stock Show at an Knd.
Th« live stock nbow at the exposi
tion. the biggest one of Its kind ever
held in the United States, with the
possible exception of the exhibit at
the World’s fair, has cloned Its doors
and gone out of business. 'Hie cur
tain went down on the final act when
the judges finished their work on the
fat cattle, hogs and sheep. The Judges
completed their work on that portion
of the program that had been carried
over from the previous day and passed
on general purpose breeds of cattle.
Merino and I>oraet sheep, Shetland
ponies. Angora gouts and swine.
So far as premiums are ronremed,
most of those on rattel and hogs went
to Missouri growers, (’annda took the
lead in sheep and Nebraska in horses.
The attendance was sll that could have
been desired, and even when the
weather was the w< rot during the last
few days the barns were crowded with
spectators, many of whom were stran
gers in the city. It is estimated that
T5 per cent of the people who passed
through the espoeltiou gates visited

Frank James ia !»"» years old. Mis
hair la turning gray, but, he ia still as
energetic and active us he could ever
have been. He is hardly the nmn one
would pick out to-day as having been
one of the moat notorious of outlaws.
He called at Jesse James' cigar
stand in the rotunda of the court
house tills morning and spent an hour
*'I am simply here," he said to a re
porter, “as a relative and friend of
Jesse. I don't know thut there ia any
thing that I can do to help him, but I
Bin here ami shall stay until after tiie
“As a matter of moral support, at
least," suggested the reporter.
“I don't know,” replied Frank James
quickly, hut without ill humor. “Why
do you think he should need it?”
“It seems to me,” said the reporter,
“that any man indicted and about to
he tried for a crime u» serious as train
robbing, no matter how innocent he
might feel himself to he, would feel at
least ill at ease about it or worried.”
“I don't know why any innocent
tnan should feel ill at ease or worried,
no matter what he is charged with.
When I surrendered and was arrested
there were seven indictments for mur
der against mo, but I wnsn't nervous.
1 knew that every one of them would
be wiped out as fast as wo came to
them just as you would wipe the fig
ures from a blackboard.
“Hut one can’t always toll what n
jury will do,” replied the reporter fall
ing for support upon a latter day
axiom; “no mutter what the testimony
is. Aren’t juries often swaye l by ora
tory or prejudice or feelings aside
from the testimony?”
“I don't believe they are,” replied
Frank James. “I believe in juries.
The jury system Is one of our bulwarks
of justice. I believe that nearly all
Juries give the men tried before them
equal justice according to the law and
the evidence before them.”
Then he changed the subject, saying:
“Somebody who had heard my in
dorsement of the administration in
the conduct of the lata war, asked me
one day this fall if I had become a Re
publican. I replied that 1 had not. Rut
I told him I'll believe old General Joe
Wheeler above any man on earth,
and I believe my boy who is now in
the regular army and got as far as
Tampa. There's the authority of the
highest and the lowest, end it's good
enough for me. McKinley is my Presi
dent, the flag is my tlug and I was an
outlaw to the Union for four years
and to the world for flfleen, but this
is my countr- ,nd I love it and hun
dreds am- tiiousands of detectives
and a price of 0,000 on my head
couldn't drive me out of it and
didn't. Th a is my administration
and I'll stami by what it did even
if 1 didn’t vote for it. That’s why I
let my only boy go into the army.
Why, I'll bet some of these soldiers
who are doing so much kicking about
the treatment they got, got more to oat
in the four months that they were in
tlie service than thousands of soldiers
on both sides in the Knbellion got in
four years, and better clothing, if they
didn't get spriug bods.”

Wasiiinotom, Oct. 24,—Tho commis
sioner of internal revenue has mate
rially modified the previous ruling of
hi* office an to tliu taxability of re
ceipts divert to banka iu place of chucks
for money withdrawn from deposit.
In accordance with the opinion of the
attorney general it la now hold that a
receipt given to a bank by a person to
whom the hank ia indebted as a depos
itor or otherwise, or for whom it holds
funds, ia no more subject to atamp
than a receipt given for any other
debt on demand.
The commissioner further auya: "Tito
purpose of tlio law ia to re<|uiru stamps
upon checks which arc commercial, ne
gotiable instruments. A check, how
ever, in not required to i»c in any par
ticular form, if it lain a form sufficient
to constitute an order for the payment
of money und assumes the character of
a commercial negotiable instrument,
then it ia subject to the tux.
“There ia much hanking done, espe
cially in savings banka, without tile
use of checks at all; the dcpoaltor hav
ing a-book in which thu banka denote
the ainounta deposited on one side And
the amounts drawn out on tin* other.
Of course the depositor iu such casus
draws money out of the hank,
hut he does not give a check, so If a
person does not give a check lie docs
not have to pay tax. If tho
bank pays him upon its dues to him
and lie gives a receipt, such receipt
does not require a stamp; but if he
issues his receipt so that it will bo
good in tho hands of another person
to draw upon ids account for tim
amount of it, then it loses the char
acter of a receipt and becomes a check
und ia subject to tim tax."
