Recognizing the importance of tho Louisiana purchase exposition, tho many reason why Nebraska should bo represented nnd the necessity for Im incdilite preparation, tlio governor has appointed the undersigned commission, without remuneration to raise the nec essary funds by private donations and to prepare nnd place on exhibit a prop er representation of tho products nnd resources of this stnte. We appeal to nil patriotic cltl.ens of Nebraska, to corporations, both public and private, to all interested in the welfare and prosperity of this state, and to ull who have pride in its past and hope for its future achievements, to assist in this worthy enterprise. Tho credit and state pride of our commonwealth ap peals to all patriotic citizens to do their duty in this emergency, and we nsk for a liberal response, to the end that Nebraska may bo properly represented at this great exposition. All contri butions or future pledges should be sent to Mr. K. K. Hruce, treasurer, Omaha, Neb. All newspapers in Nebraska are re quested to publish this appeal. (Signed) GuitnoK W. Wattt.ks, J.
