Yesterday morning was a badilny for the fair
It broke with aoanupv of heavy clouds over
llio city , which , about 10 o'clock , broke into
lienvy rain In the vicinity of thu fairgrounds.
It looked as 1C thu day would close in rain
niul everybody would bo deterred from com-
Intr to town. Sherman avenue was coated
with mud. Only a few vehicles moved over
Its surface and those made the best of. the
opportunity to escape from the down pour.
Among the wagons won ) several of tlio open
vans used : IM transfers bv the horse car com
pany. They contained but n fraction of
their customary loads and among these were
several ladies. Some of the pleasure-seeking
individuals owned umbrellas , but most of
them did not. As a consequence , when the
carry-alls rolled into the grounds , many of
the unfoiliinutu occupants alighted like be-
Tlio ground , of course , was soft , though the
walks enabled people to move about with a
considerable degree of comfort. The police
stood under the eaves of thudiipplug offices
or took shelter In the open booths , while
many of the exhibitors commiserated one
another and dejectedly felt like shutting up
.simp. During the morning not 1110:0 than
! ! 00 people entered the grounds , and the ma
jority of the.su were exhibitors and attend
ants. AUer-ii down-pour of about an hour
the ralu ceased , but- the sky remained over
cast. The programme outlined tor the morn
ing's amiisument was dlspBnsod with ,
'though ' many of the judges ploughed their
way through tlio mud to perform the duty as
signed them , us appears above in tins issue.
Later the rain commenced to fall again , and
at 12 o'clock there was little hope that the
afternoon would In any manner encourage a
visitation of the people.
yesterday morning , was imt around the soft
track by licrownerMr. Wngner. She was then
luil to her box-stall In the stable , where she
was immediately blanketed and rubbed until
her sides slionn like polished mahogany.
This noble adimal is in excellent spirits ,
though her bones.espccially in the Inps , seem
a little more prominent than when she was
here before. Her bearing , however , is still
as noble , and there Is still thn same good nu-
turcd Mash and intelligence that then beamed
in her eye.
Her competitor , Harry \\MIkes , occupied an
adjoining stall , but was locked up , and the
key ot thy place was In the pocket of the
owner , Fiank Van Ness , who had gone to

The rain yesterday afternoon permitted but
n few people , even from among those from
abroad , to go to the grounds. As n consequence
quence there was no display made. All thoraces
races , both dog and horse , with Butcher's
equestrian gymnasium , were postponed to
to-day , when Phyllis and Harry Wilkes will

The rain of yesterday nlternoon had a
bcnsiblo effect njon ) the attendance of city
lieoplo at the exposition , though It in no
wise militated against those from abroad
who had come to pay a visit to Its halls. Of
the latter there was ijultu a number who had
started from their rur.il homes before thu
rain had began to fall , and who thought that
they might bo able to enjoy the local attrac
tions without the interference of elemental
agencies. .Many of these , although intend
ing to visit botli the exposition and fair ,
were prevented by the inclement weather
from going beyond the latter , and this tliev
enjoyed fn a manner which occasioned
pleasure to every attache of the. Institution.
Among the number were several from Lin
coln , who had come as sceptics but who went
away convinced of thu fact that in every do-
paitment , the show was equal to aiivtllinir
that had over been seen between Chicago
and San Francisco.
With regard to the local visitors , it must
be said that their appreciation of the all air
was most pronounced. They wandered
through the mazy walks , at times bent , upon
Inspection of the goods displayed , at others
lightly diseasing tiie pleasant questions
which biicli scenes inspire. When tireii of
both their walk and tall ; , convenient suttees
enabled them to indulge in delightful
t tt-a-tctos ! , which the beautiful music of the
Musical Union orchestra inado all thu moro
enjoyable. The piogramme rendered by this
excellent organization is as follows :

It was lung after 10 o clock
when the last loiterer
loit the building , so great was the Interest
displayed by every visitor , and , at the same
time , so indnlgini ; was thu policy of thu
A few nights ago the latter introduced a
monstrous ougliio bell , with which It pro
posed to announce the hour of closing. Last
night the sounds of this metallic annunciator
could not be heard. Instead , there was thu
puny tones of several adolescent Bongs.whlcli
sounded as if a small boy were playing with
thu cause of their dlstutbancc. The man
agement should Insist upon sounding the big
belt mentioned , and scu that it Is respected
without unnecessary delay.
To-day pleasant weather has been vouch
safed , and a largo number of strangers Irom
abroad will doubtless bo in attendance.
COX CIIKMIOAT. COMPAKV.
Perhaps no itxhlblt in the building at
tracted more attention than that of thu "Sil
ver ( Jift baking powder" by the Cox Chemi
cal company. Inside a square , over which
hung a glittering UiViirsltyoC elegant silver
spoons , knives , napkin rings , etc. , which niu
given out as presents , were piled cans of tlio
SllverUlltbaklng powder. A woman wasen-
Kaged In making hut biscuits and dealing them
out to thu multitude which praised around.
Their delicious llavor well demonstrated the
superior character of thu baking powder. It
Is chemically pure , while at the same time It
is possessed of the requisite strength. As an
Inducement to the purchaser a "silver gift"
Is given away with each can , The local

of the most striking things to bo seen was a
handsome trunk , rawhide bound , In such a
manner as to subserve thu ends of utility ,
durability , and beauty , This trunk it re
quired thu services ot one man for tour days
to manufacture. Another beautiful featuio
was an alligator hide trunk costing Si00 ,
while still another was n solid solo leather
trunk. The latter was of extra largo size , with
nil manner of compartments to delight the
traveler's heart. This trunk Is built to stand
thu wear and tear of ages , and is cheap at

( iiistav Amlreen & Co. , the well known
safe linn , occupied a prominent place in the
annex with a line line of safes. They com
prised burglar proof safes , tlmo lock safes ,
patent "combination" safes , safes ot every
size and description. It had been Mr , An-
drcon's Intention to exhibit a largo 10,000
pound Hufo which 1m Is constructing for the
Union National bank. But It was impos
sible to compluto It In time. It Is much to bo
regretted that this tUoco of work could not
tin viewed by the public in connection with
Mr. Amheeu's already line display. This
lirm is commanding a largo amount of pat
ronage , both local and outside. Among
other largo lirms which they already have
contracts is one for KO. ) aafclv deposit boxes
for the Omaha National bank , which are to

TIIK MAIMON KNTHKl'ltlSl : TO.
In the aiinnx , one of the mont notable dis
plays was that of the Marian Enterprise Co. ,
sole agents for the Arnold Cooker and Colfeu
Pot. A lady is busily engaged all day long in
making colleo tor the many who press around
to witness the operations of the cooker. The
delicious llavor of thu beverage will attest thu
ieil'ect manner in which the cooker works.
The coffee is not boiled as in the ordinary
pots , but is steamed to the requisite he.xt ,
without allowing any of the aroma or strength
to boil itself away.
The cooker is a complete stove itself , capa
ble of cooking a meal for a family of eight
or ton persons. Its advantages are. manifold.
It is compact , occupying but a tithe of the'
space of the ordinary kitchen cook stove , it
is economical , requiring but a very small ex
pense tor fuel. It Is easily operated , being
so simple that a child can handle it without
any difficulty whatever. It cooks the food
rapidly and thoroughly ) and preserves all
those essential llavnrs in the various kinds of
food , which are lost in the old and biuftrling
methods of cookery. In this respect it closely
approaches French cookery , which is thu
standard of art of thu cuisine. When It Is
aitdoil to all these advantages that the Arnold
Cooker is very cheap , one can rcadilvseo how
it has sprung so quickly Into nopular favor.
The cooker comes in different sizes , at prices
ranging from 81.75 up. The housewife who
Is tired of the old and slow methods of cook
ing , is hereby Invited to Inspect the workings
of this contrivance In thu exposition build-
Ing. It she Is not convinced of its superior
practical advantages , she must bo a skeptic

for the Arnold Cooker. H s olllco is at 502

and splendid specimens of apples , punches ,
pears , grapes , and other fruits , besides , ban-
aims , pineapples and thu dllTerent foreign
varieties of fruits , are ranged side by shlo.
The wholn presents a bewildering massot
color which the brush of the most oxueri-
ouced painter could not reproduce in Us ox-
qulslto harmony. The exhibit Is the onlyono
of itH kind in the building and rcllects great
credit unon the energy and Ingenuity ot
Messrs. Branch & Co.
This linn is one of the most popular com
mission lirms In the city , and handles a very

grade , the best makes of dolls , and bric-a-
brac In great variety. A leading feature Is

"Talking with the secretary , " said Youmuns ,
"no ono would imagine he had any trouble ,
for his color is uood and there is no percept
ible decrease in the fullness of his face.bnt it
is when he attempts to walk that the extent
of his malady is manifested , and my opinion
is that the secretary will not reconsider his
determination to retiiu from thu treasury do

and his family are averse to his picking up
the reigns ot government again , as it will
only increase his feebleness and I do not
think his physicians will allow it
cither. " This confirms the View held all
nloni : by those who have been familiar with
Manning's condition and known strenuous
objections of his family to hN going back to
work. Assistant Secretary Fnirclilld would
have as much to do us bu nas now.and Man

The report adds : "During the jia.it year

WASHINGTON , Sept. S. [ Special Telegram
to the BKI.J : Nothing Is known at llio war
department or Indian bureau of the alleged
outbreak of trouble between the Indi ins on
thu Great Blaekfeet reservation , In southern
Montana , of which rumors and specific ac
counts have reached the western press. This
eservation has the greatest number oL' frng-
nents of tribes of any reservation in the
United States. It comprises an area of * ! , -
s : > 0 .square miles , or nearly as huvi ; as thu
stale of Ohio , anil cont-iins 21iril,2UJ acies.
Upon It are three agencies tlio Blaekfeet , at
which are gathered lemains of the Blaekfeet
blood , and Sieiran tiibes ; Fort Pock uuenuy ,
the rendezvous of the Assinabolne ,
Brulo , Panli'u , Leon , Uiieonipah-
gro and Yankton Sioux , and
Fort Bclknap agency , ationl which are gath
ered Gros Venire , Assinaboinu and a few
river Crows. Mono ot these Indians liavu
any gr'eat love for each other , and If the
bands from the dlircreiit agencies mil across
one another somebody generally loses a
sc'ilp. Information has been iccoivud heio
from time to time of brawls and drunken
lights , but none as serious as the hist reported
outbreak. It is feared that these Indians ,
especially the Blaekfeet ami Gros Venire ,
who are especially aggressive , are preparing
to go upon the war-path against their neigh
bors and tliu few whites In Northern
Montana this fall. The "war" could not bo
very formidable , as there are not over seven
thousand Indians of all tribes on thu reser
vation , but it could bo made very unpleasant (

An army officer talking with n reporter to-day
said that It depended upon tliu conduct of tliu
whites and how thu Indians ate treated by

wilds ot Washington territory. Tneso are
not particularly savage , but they are In
regions where it Is easy for them to hfdu

trouble , hu suv.s , Is that thu whiles are too
aggressive. They try to take advantage of
the Indians and to bully them. No dispatches
