Commissioner General Garneauof the
State Columbian commission was in
Omaha last week. From him it was
learned the world's fair management
has designated June 8 as Nebraska day.
This will afford the long anticipated
display of Nebraska products and man
ufactures and will, of course, attract
Ncbraskans in large numbers. The
Nebraska commission will arrange
special exercises appropriate to the oc
casion. Hon. William F. Cod (Buffalo
Bill), whose great Wild West show is
now exhibiting in Chicago, has tendered
the commission his services and has of
fered to make such use of his Indians
and cowboys as the commission may
determine upon in the way of a parade
that will illustrate the progress made
in the civilization of Nobraska.
Nebraska at the Fair.
June S has been set apart as a special
state day at the Nebraska building at
the World's fair, and great things arc
being prepared to "especially interest
visitors from Nebraska. Commissioner
Garneau, speaking generally of the
state exhibibit and its present condi
tion, says:
"We have experienced a great amount
of delay and annoyance from the con
gested condition of traffic between here
and Chicago. It has been next to im
possible to get goods from Nebraska to
the World's fair grounds in less than a
week's time and in many instances
goods have not gone through even in a
week. The business is so enormous
that it is impossible for the Illinois Cen
tral road, which has to do most of the
switch yard business at the grounds,
to get the goods delivered in anything
like reasonable time.
"Notwithstanding the delay, howev
er, we have progressed very well with
the work of arranging the exhibits.
We made one mistake, which shows up
more and more as we near the comple
tion of the work. We should never
have attempted to make the exhibit of
products in the state building at all. It
Would have been better in the end if
we had reserved the building simply as
a sort of reception and club house and
had all the state exhibits displayed in
the department buildings. -Many of
the states have adopted this plan, and
I see now that it is a wise one. We
could have taken the same money and
made the Nebraska building a little
mbre attractive and the state would
have won just as many laurels by hav
ing its products aU exhibited in the
main buildings along with products
from the other states. Butit is too
late now to make the change and
we will get on very well as it is. We
hope to see a great many Nebras
kans at the fair on June which
has been set aside as Nebraska day, as
we will have some special exercises on
that occasion that will be pleasing, not
only to the people of Nebraska, but to
visitors general. Nebraska is going to
be well represented Jn every depart

More Bunted Banks.
Chicago, May 12. The Columbian
National bank of this city failed yes
terday. It had a capital of 81,000,000
and deposits of $1,400,000. A rumor
that it was in trouble had been current
for nearly a week. It did business with
small country banks mostly, and was
not esteemed among the other city
It is said that the cause of the failure
was poor collections on loans. This
collapse and that at Indianapolis caused
a break of 2 cents in the price of
wheat here. "
Notices announcing the suspension
were posted on the doors and soon af
ter Bank Examiner Sturges took charge
of it by authority of the comptroller of
the currency. The bank was reorgan
ized two years ago out of the old United
States National. A Constant run .since
the- announcement of the Chemical
bank's suspension caused the directors
to close the doors. A call fdr help was
made this morning, but there was not
time for an investigation before re
sponding to it and the suspension came.
The Columbia is not a member of the
clearing house. Its last statement,
May 24, was as follows:

President Dwiggens assigns the im
mediate cause of the failure to the suit
against the Sioux City Loan and Trust
company, which failed a few days ago.
The Columbia had $35,000 on deposit
with that concern. News of this fajt
led to the run which ended in the bank's
collapse., lnd., May 12. The
Capital National bank of this city has
suspended and a bank examiner is in
charge. The failure was caused by
that of the Chemical National of Chi
cago, which owed the Capital National
S1C0.000. The Capital also carried a
large amount of Premier Steel works
paper. The latter went into receivers'
hands Friday. The Indianapolis bank
was the depository for a number of
building associations.
The officials of the bank made a
statement in which they say the capi
tal stojk is $300,000. The bank had
done a profitable business, was run on
a conservative basis, and there was
nothing in the bank's condition to cause
uneasiness till Tuesday, when the fail
ure of the Chemical National of Chica
go occurred. The Capital National had
579,000 on deposit in the bank. The
fact of the Capital's relations with that
bank was known and caused distrust
and heavy drafts. This made the bal
ances so heavy against the Capital
bank that, in the present financial
stringency, it was not thought best to
try to get outside aid to tide the bank
over, so it was decided to suspend. The
bank has available assets of over S200.
000 in addition to the money tied up in
the Chemical bank. The assets and
liabilities of the Capital bank at the
close of business yesterday were each
Sl,.-45,.-37. The officers add that the
business is in such shape as to be
cadily settled up.
To Rare With a Dromedary. !
Chicago, 111., May 12. Abbas Sahra, '
one of the Bedouin chiefs of the Society
Hainidie. that is to give exhibitions of
life on the desert at the World's fair
this summer, stood yesterday abstractly '
gazing with admiring eyes at his p2t
camel. Abbas was disturbed in his rev- i
erie by a reporter, who sought to ques-!
tion him on the speed he could get out
of one of his dromedaries. A pronosi- i
tion was advanced that one of the
dromedaries be matched against
Chicago's best bicyclist. The noble
shiek was assured that there
were several bicycle riders in
Chicago who could give his Damascus
dromedary a hard tussle for a mile or
two. The ludicronsnefs of a man on a
bicycle being able to beat his pet drom
edary was too much for Abbas and
grew upon him until he had to call up
his fellow chiefs, Selim, Chaweech,
Emirhamzi and Mahmoud Oukawi, and
hold a laughing concert.
He said that his fleetest animal would
go a mile in a trifle under three min
utes, and received a severe pride wound
by being told that his pet would have
to be given a handicap of fifty yards.
The prospect of winning, however, got
the better of him and he signed arti
cles of aagrcement for a mile race by
electric light some evening in July.

World's Fair Open on gu4ay.
Chicago, 111., May 13. -The World's
fair gateS will be opened to the public
and the vexed question of Sunday opt
ing is settled. Early last Sunday morri
ing crowds began to move on to Jack
son park, thinking that, perhaps, the
gates of the fair grounds would be
opened, but they were disappointed,
and fully 40,000 people were turned
away from the gates of the fair proper,
and spent their money with the side
shows surrounding the fair, a fact
which the fair .authorities- were not
slow to grasp. As a result, at the regu
lar monthly meeting of the local direc
tors of the World's fair, it was decided
to open the gates of Jackson park to
the public for one-half the sum of ad
mittance to the fair during the week,
viz: 25 cents. This action has nothing
to do with the openings of the build
ings. The latter will remain closed as
required under tho laws passed by con
gress, and as agreed to when the sum
of 83,600(000 was adcepted from th
hands of the Fifty-sgcond cdilgre
The gate keepers will admit to tho
grounds everyone paying 25 cents. They
can examine the buildings on the out
side see everything there is to be seen,
in fact, but they cannot enter the build
ings. The action of the board will go
into effect a week from next Sunday or
on the 2lBt of this month.
The vote by which the resolution was
passed wbb 27 to 7. Under the resolu
tion Midway plaisance will also be
thrown open.
Mr. Edwin Walker, attorney for the
board, submitted ail opinion ttatHg
question,, and on the strength of this
bpinion the board acted. No provision
was made for tho return of any part of
the 82,500,000 given the fair under that
act of congress, but there was vaguet
tentative talk of refunding the money
somehow, sometime in the uncertain
future. The votes, as explanations
made by the directors revealed, by no
means showed the real convictions of
each member. Many voted in the af
firmative for the purpose of forcing a
test of the matter, nnd others voted so
with reservations and provisos.
Briefly, Mr. Walker decided that the
exposition was one thing and the expo
sition grounds a distinct and separate
thing. On this the local directory stands
accordingly. Unless the national conl
ini&sion acts vigorously to prevent it
Jucksoh park will be open dn Sunday;
the exposition buildings remaining
closed. The fact that an effort would
be made to cut the gordian knot brought
out a large attendance of members,
thirty-five of the forty-five being pres
ent Long beforo the call for order tho
directors sat abont the room, impa
tiently awaiting the appearance of a
quorum. Ex-President Baker seemed
hardly able to brook the delay. He re
peatedly called on tho board to get
down to business. His impatience, how
ever, was not exactly conspicuous, as
everybody seemed to feel the same way.
The gravity of the question which was
to be dealt with, apparently caused the
directors no little anxiety and the joc
ularity which usually prefaced the
meetings was absent.
Opening of the Cherokee Strip.
Washixgtox, May 13. There is a
queer state of affairs in connection with
the opening of the Cherokee Strip
which will probably result in placing
in the hands of speculators all the de
sirable lots in tho sites selected for the
fifteen county seats to be formed in the
strip. It appears that a banker of
Muskogee, named Robert L. Owen, con
ceived the idea that there are seventy
one families of Indians settled on the
strip, although no one else has been
able to find one of the families up to
date. The law provides that these al
leged settlers shall be allowed to take
their allotments before the remainder
of the lands are thrown open to settle
ment Some time ago an agent, to make the
allotment, named Duncan, was ap
pointed. He is a close friend and prol
ably a relative of Owen. Today Solici
tor Hall of the Interior department
formulated the instructions which .are
to govern Duncan. He is ordered to
hee that all parents make their selec
tions around their alleged improve
ments, but the children are to be per
mitted to choose their lands wherever
they like. As these children are per
mitted to assign or convey their selec
tions, it is believed tho result will be
that not a child of any of the settlers'
families will hold an acre of land a
month after the boom sets in, and that
every man from the north or east who
wants to establish himself in business
in the country will be compelled to see
the friends of Mr. Owen, who will hold
the key to the ground floor.
Congressman Oates May Resign.
Washington, May 13. Representa

the fault of the wretched English writ
ten by boys in school is not entirely
that of the preparatory schools, and
that the poor results come mainly from
three causes which affect injuriously all
branches of school work. These are, a
narrowness in the range of the modern
boy's ideas, a lack of clearness in these
ideas, and an increasing inability to
read a printed page understanding!.

Washington, May 13. An evening
paper has this account of the trouble
between the Presiaenfc and Delegate
As a result of his disagreement be
tween himself and President Cleveland,
Delegate John L. Rawlins of Utah has
telegraphed to Governor West his resig
nation df his seat ill congress.
The troublo was Over the distribution
of federal patronage in Utah', afcd fc is
said that hot words passed between the
two and that there was an exciting
scene. Certain it is that when Mr.
Rawlins left the .president's room his
face was flushed with anger and he was
laboring under great excitement.
The incident occurred on last Satur
day. Delegate Rawlins had had two or
thfee previous interviews with the
president aftd Had made certain recom
mendations for appointments iU Ms
territory. He came to see what action
Mr. Cleveland was going to take in
these cases and he was fortunate enough
to have.a private conference with the
president. He soifn discovered that
President Cleveland had his own views
on the subject of appointments to office
in Utah.
Mr. Rawlins started in to argue and
show why he was right The president
cut him short and intimated that there
were other persons and other interests
besides those represented by Mr. Raw
lins, which would have to be consulted.
By this time1 the delegates temper had
been aroused and although the presi
dent had simply told him, as he lias
told to all members of congress, Mr.
Rawlins gave it as his opinion that his
recommendations should carry more
weight One word led to another,
until finally Mr. Rawlins worked up
into a passion, told the president if his
word was not to be taken with regard
to Utah matters and politics he could
find some one else to consult. He went
at once to the telegraph office and wired
his resignation to the governor.
Although the president's recent order
has cut down the number of callers,
since a congressman Cannot carry his
constituents in with him to the presi
dent's presence, it has done but little
else. The congressmen and senators
continue to come as numerously as ever,
and they occupy just as much tiiric as
they did when they brought a crowd
with them. There being comparatively
few of them, each member of congress
feels entitled to prolong his conversa
tion, so that as far as time is concerned,
they consume as much as ever.
There are those among the daily call
ers a t the white house who would not
be surprised to witness a radical change
iu the next year or two in the method
of distributing the federal patronage.
Briefly stated, the change would mean
the curtailment, if not the complete
abolition of active and persistent efforts
by congressmen in the distribution of
patronage. The necessity for a change
in the present system is said to lie in
the fact that of late years the work of
congress as an executive body is seri
ously interfered with by the absence of
members from the daily session, neces
sitated by the attention which they
must give to the task of pressing their
constituents' demands for patronage in
the various departments.
Republican, National Organizations In
Louisville, April 12. In the con
vention of republicans in this city yes
terday, President Clarkson, in response
to the address of welcome, said, among
other things:
"We meet here today in the name of
the republicanism of Abraham Lincoln,
Ulysses S. Grant and James G. Blaine.
This is the republicanism whose eter
nal word is human liberty. It is a re
publicanism that exerts itself, loves the
republic and its fellowraen, never hauls
down the American flag, reveres God,
hates treason and tyranny, defends tho
weak and despises ingratitude either in
political parties or in nations. It is
practically a new generation that must
represent the republican party of tho
future. The day has come when we
need the power of the blood and the
youth of the young man in the front
ranks of the party. The democracy
made up of old men could never defeat
republicanism, but the danger we have
to face now is a democratic party made
up of young men."
"With thecoming rule of the younger
men let us hope that we shall have a
party of greater courage in small things
and larger tolerance in larger things.
Let us make the platform so broad that
the men, native or foreign born, any
man of any church or of any occupa
tion may find a place and a welcome in
our ranks. Thus Ave gain new votes
and new elements and we have the
pleasure of giving welcome here today,
for the first time, to a delegation of
fighting republicans from the territory
of Utah. As we welcome them here
today from a territory so small, we
soon hope to welcome them from a
state. As we begin here today the
march of victory in 1896, we have
neither complaints nor apologies nor
explanations to make regarding the de
feat of last year. Indeed, the republi
can party feels better today over the
situation than the country itself. The
democratic party that saw in the re
publican policies only robbery of the
American people, have now been in
power two months and that robbery
still goes on by democratic consent and
under democratic auspices. We have
had a democratic president and a dem
ocratic congress sixty days and there
are some results. Cleveland has done
several things. He has hauled down
the flag where republicans ran it up in
the name of liberty in the Sandwich
islands; and more than that, he gave
to a confederate the first chance that
any confederate ever had, to haul -old
glory' down.
"He and his secretary of the treasury
have already given the country a plain
foretaste of democratic ideas of finance
and business; have already frightened
the business" world; practically made a
suspension of discount in all the banks
in the country, and created uneasiness
and fear where safety and prosperity
ruled before.

shown an adverse balance of foreign
trade in the last four months of $80,- I
000,000, as against a favorable balance
of over $70,000,000 in the first four
months of Harrison's administration.
"It is also about to achieve another
great result in proposing to pay the
pensions of the union soldiers in due
bills. Already are the democrats go
ing at such a pace that it is plain to all
honest men that the rvpubiicang in th
present congress w'iif Kavei to choose
between allowing the democratic party
to kill itself and protecting and saving
the business interests of tho country.
And we can do it. We can maintain
our principles with undiminished faith
and foTTor, and also, I hope, under the
evolutionary teachings of time to move
Minister to Hawaii.
Washxgton, 0. C- May 10. OfficiaU
of the state department eeoflrm the
prediction heretofore made that ex
Representative Blount would be ap
pointed minister resident to Hawaii.
It has been supposed that Minister Ste
vens would remain in charge of the le
gation tfnitl the" 24th of this month, at
which time he" Ih-Jd announced his in
tention of sailing for Sah Francisco. It
is now known that Mr. Stevens Was
Instructed to forthwith turn over the
legation to Commissioner Blount, who
ha5 betfrt appointed his successor. There
is reason to believe that Mr. Stevens
was not allowed to remain in charge of
the legation until the 24th iftst, because
of his activity in behalf of annexation.
It is further stated at the department
that Messrs. Bowen and Sewell, who
went to Honolulu shortly after Com
mlssiWtter Blount's arrival, hav been
aotive in tiielf efforts to stimulate sent
iment on the islands in favor of annex
ation, and there is reasdfi t believe
that they have sought to creau the im
pression that in so doing they were rep
resenting the president.

National Conference to Be Held in Chi
cago June 5 and 0.
St. Paul, Minn., May 12 Twenty
six Governors have responded to the
call of Got. Nelson for a great anti
coal combine convention, among tham
Gov. Russell of Massachusetts, Gov.
Pattison of Pennsylvania and Gov. Alt
geld of Illinois. The Governors of Michi
gan and Rhode Island have referred
the matter to the Legislatures of those
States, which are still in session. Each
State is entitled to ten delegates. The
Chairman of the Minnesota delegation
will be Ignatius Donnelly.
Gov. Nelson sent the following let
ter to the Governor of each of the forty
four States:
"Referring to my communication to
you of the 17th ult, in which yon were
requested to name ten delegates to
represent your State at the 'inter-State
coal combination and other unlawful
trusts conference,' to be hela on the
first Monday in June next at such
place as wonld be mutually satisfac
tory to the Governors of the different
States and Territories, I bave the
honor to inform you that favorable re
sponses have been received from a
large majority of the Governors, who
signify their intention of appointing
delegates to attend this conference.
"It Is evidently the wish of the ma
jority of the Governors that the con
ference be held at Chicago, as a larger
and more representative gathering can
be had and the States will be more
fully and generally represented.
"In view of this fact, the conference
will be held at Central Music Hall, in
the city of Chicago, on June 5 and 6.
1893, commencing at 10 o'clock on June
5. Indications point to a large gath
ering of representative men from the
different States in the union and I sin
cerely hope than your State will be
fully represented at the time. Kindly
furnish me with the names and ad
dresses of persons whom you appoint.
I am, yours very truly,
"Knute Nelson,
"Governor of Minnesota."

Thousands will feel compelled to stay
entirely, and so will remain away al
together if the Fair is a Sabbath
breaking institution. Aside from legal
considerations, the financial success of
the Exposition will be advanced by
