Anothei delay was occasioned nt this stagr

In the first race the distance pole

The exposition.
The exposition building yesterday
morning presumed a most at-
raulivo cc. Tlio Hoot
hiul been swept with scrupii-
lous cure , tlio cases and exhibits ! were
dusted and thosu which , ducing the night ,
litul slumbered umlor coverings of canvn
were uncovered witli tlio view of again
tlio Inflow of visitors.
At 10 o'clock the doors were open and
from that hour until tlio time of this
Eapor's gonm to press there were a mini-
ur of people iMitijring , walking through
and icaving llio building.
The morning liour.s ot Iho day arc es
pecially desirable for these who wish to
makoanuiol and .studious inspection of
tin ? exhibit ! ) . This fact seemed to bo ap
preciated by tlio visitors , many of whom
took their tlmo in examining Ihe thous
ands of goods willilu llieir view.
Many of llio exhibitors were early on
hand , some beautillng and increasing
llioir display , othor.s luljusting it to the
prov.iiiing lights , olhers still increasing
tlio supply of tins latter , ami in general
proliting by the cxpuriouco of the lirst
night's show.
A number of entries were made , but
they were maiiilv of the lighter order ,
anil were disposed of on tlio upper floors ,
and will , in their turn receive attention
in those columns. Tlmro was onu no-
tiocablo display among this morning's
entries on the ground lloor , and thai was
an unique oxlilbit by Clark Woodman.
It consislcd of a tastefully decorated
arch , containing an assortment of the
oils imiilo at Woodman's mill , while , in
front , lay a barrel of the same- material ,
on the side of which stands long slender
vials of oil , as clear as maple syrup.
A now boll of gigantic dimensions has
been put in place to warn people ol1 tlio
closing hour , the gong which was iibed
on Saturday having been" found inade
quate in volume to bo hoard all through
the building.
IJesido it , is the valuable cabinet ot the
Omaha and Grant smelting and refining
works , with little mountains of lead in
front almost a ton in weight.
Mergell & llosenxwoig display a room
especially made for the occasion. Its
prevailing tone is light , the panels being
outlined with silver. Tlio dis
play of the latter is unique ana admira
bly carried. In the front in a circular
aruation'of wine velvet barred with gold ,
and the corners are allegorical pictures
of great beauty.
S. A. Orchard's front is porhnps the
most unique. It consists of'a high lam
brequin from'which lin.yri * a pair of not
portieres , the effect ( ft which is beautiful.
I hero is ajoay window with curtains of lace , together with a rich assort
ment of rugs and other burnishings.
Thrco beautiful pictures ornament the
walls , each of which , a gem in itself , is
tlio work of Mabel , Mr. Orchard's daugh
ter , who is scarcely sixteen years of age.
A cabinet , too , on one side , displays her
work hi carving.
Dowcy & Stone , Kovor behind , have
three rooms , disposed as a parlor , a din
ting room , nnd a sleeping apartment.
The latter is abla/.o with mirrors , and
contains , beside , a chamber sot of carved
red mahogany , valued at $3,000. The
dining room is replete with tables and
chairs of antique oak , a siacboard , hat
rack and cabinets , the value of which is
also in the thousands. Tlio parlor con
tains a dark mahogany set , carved with
richness , and catching on all sides and
at all angles , the reflection of mirrors of
purest French plate. This is tlio finest
display over made by Dewey & Stone.
Much of it is their own woric , especially
the upholstering , which the firm now
does with the best corns of upholsterers
in the country.
Howu & Kerr make a pretty display of
a chamber docked nnd furnished , ready
for - \ queen.
AVolty & Lnndrock have a room full of
mantles'robes , , blankets and an infinite
variety of other articles for the use of the

corated hanging lamps.
The Omaha Carpet Co. , has a booth
under the north gallery , the walls and

richest r.nrpcts , so selected and set as to
strongly resemble artistic fresco.

the first week after the sealed verdict Was

dently , as they made believe , that the guilty
ones would be brought to justice at once and

It is well od to two weeks since the coioncr's
Jury adjourned and yet nothing Is known or
nccompllshcd more than nt that time. The
result has been also.that all paitle.s supposed
to bo in nny manner Implicated are gone.
The public called for lulurmatlon from the
staitas the facts developed , but were denied
any knowledge whatever. It was a star
chamber investigation. Many of the best
judges and most candid men with whom the
llr.r. representative conversed thought It
ceitaln that had the Investigation been open ,
nnd as the evidence was seemed pointing to
the guilt or oven connivance of any party ,
an arrest had been made on such parties caie-
flilly watched and not allowed to escape as
they have been , there would have been no
charge for the awful crime nnd blot upon
Sioux City's name going unrequited or un
punished , D. W. Wood , the attorney for
the law and outer league , believes that the
time has como when the verdict nnd evidence
should bo made public. Ho formeily ac
quiesced In the scctot methods employed ,
but did so on the supposition that nil the
facts gained nt the Inquest would bo immedi
ately given to thopiopcr unices' . The coionor
has gone to his h'onio In niemotopart of the
county , pocketing the verdict , and has made
no returns to the clcik of the court. It is

this dllloy-dnlliiig. Ever since this investi
gation commenced one thing after another
seemed to conspire to defeat the ends of jus
tice and help the guilty ones to escape. It is
stated now upon what some consider good
evidence that llov. Mr. Haddock was un-
.drnibtcilly killed by a former Wisconsin
enemy. In support of this theory the fact is
mentioned that Mr. Haddock noticed thin
lunn among tin ; crowd in the court house on
tliodnvofhls murder , and obtained , by re
quest of Attorney Wood permission to carrv
arms to defend himself. This is only onu of
tlie manv theiies and rumors heard. Keene
