Cheyenne hits other redeeming features ,
among them the mines twenty miles
west of the city which have just been
opened. The mineral from these mines
Is assaying $100 to the ton and the end is
not yet. The little city at bnsc of the
mountains is on the verge of a genuine
boom. Heal estate values since January

THE OMAHA FAIR.
Borne Interesting Facts Relating to
The oflicial daily programme of the
Tctorans' reunion , which will bo hold
during fair week , has already been pub
lished. The dally programme of the fair
association will bo made public this week.
Through the courtesy of Secretary Mo-
Shane , a BKK reporter was shown yes
terday the "copy" of the fair's daily bill-
of-fnro , and from it was pointed out to
him the nicety with which the special
events of both the fair association and
the veterans' organization have -been
dove-tailed so as not to interfere with
each other. There has been , it seems ,
eorao anxiety us to how this was to bo
accomplished ; but it has been done , and
done well. There is no longer any fear ,
. therefore , that any visitor , citizen or vet
eran who desires to see all which the gala
week of the year will have to offer
Will bo deprived of any opportunity to
take in the full scope of the joint cele
Another feature of the fair about which
there has been some misunderstanding
er misapprehension is the relation of the
Omaha Fair and Exposition association
to the Donglns county Agricultural so-
elety. They arc ordinarily entirely sep
arate organizations. This year they arc
united in the one common purpose which
has been mentioned heretofore in these
columns the giving to Omaha of tlio
Tery best fair and exposition which the
people of this section of country have
ever had a chance to see. It is true that
the coming grand display will bo under
the auspices of the Omaha Fair and Ex
position association , but this will not do-
tracUfrom the county association's inter
est in the happy issue of the result. The
eleven counties Dundy Cuss , Fillmore ,
Neruaha , Cheyenne , Keith , Hall , Wayne ,
JBnflalo , Howard and Sherman
which will appear in generous
competition under one roof , will com
pete only.for the premiums ottered by the
Omaha association , while the Douglas
County society will compute not only for
those general prl/.os but among them
selves for tlio pri/es offered by the county
nocioty. This gives the home exhibitors ,
us they may bu called , an appreciable ad-
vuntitgu. of xvhlcih thuy may bu expected
ti * uvail thuiu&ulvus. With u chance ol
obtaining two pmi's on ono exhibit , the
inrmcrs of the country inimcitiatoiy sur
rounding iimy bu expected to exhibit
their products on u llnural s-calo. The
si'orotar.v of thu coiiiuv association has
distributed ' . ' ,000 premium lists through
tais county and it behooves the farmers
to uoto them well. For their further in
formation it may be added that the sec
retary's name is John Biiumor mid that
Ills olllco is at No. 1,311 Farnam street in
As regards the general exhibit there
f re several new points of interest.
Among them are thu facts that word has
already been received that the attendance
from Iowa will bu enormous , both 01
exhibitors and visitors ; that thu country
round about Maryvillu , Mo. , will send a
atroug delegation from their excellent
Mock-growing region ; and that there is
Memlntzly no cud to the string of ap
plications for exhibition space. The
Mate of Colorado will send a sumptuous
sUaplav of its agricultural resources , ant

TheatricalrAttraotions of the > Coming
Season In the Gitjr ; < >
Next Monday evening will signalize
the inaugural of thu fall and winter the
atrical season , which promises to bo the
most enjoyable and successful within a
long series of years. For weeks the staff
of Boy el's popular opera house have been
assiduously engaged making the neces
sary preparations , and : it last have every *
thing in most commendable readiness.
Amoug the many improvements notice
able is the removal of the wooden railing
around the orchestra and its replacement
with handsome bronzed circlets , with
hoary maroon drapings. The whole in
terior of the building has boon thorough
ly renovated , and now presents as bright
and fresh and attractive appearance as
any house in the country. The boxes are
coy.y , comfortable and beautiful , with
rich upholstering and furniture. The
balcony , and even the gallery , are also
handsomely treated , and the ventilation
of the whole house most perfect. Now
rubber matting has been laid on the
exit stairways and the vcstibufa
bus been garnished and touched
up with exceeding taste and at
tractiveness. The hydraulics connected
with the house are complete and in the
best of repair , with numerous water'
plugs and an abundance of hose to reach
the most remote corner. In addition to
tins , so perfect are the precautionary
measures observed , the management
have a detailed lircman , ono on each side
of the stage , to bu ready to act in u mo
ment's warning. In fact , there is cvnry
preparation for any emergency , and it
seems as if there should bo actuullv no
danger huro from fire. The exits from
the building are ample , with ono on the
east , lire csoipes on the west , and the
main exits in the front.
As previously mentioned , the house is
to be formally opened to-morrow even
ing with William Gillette's great Ameri
can play , "Held by the Enemy , " which
created such a furore in the theatrical
world last season.

Meeting of the Board Ijast Night
JjrmlH Hcimroil's Joke.
The board of public works met last
night and transacted bus ! ness of a routine
nature in reference to bills and their re
lation to the council. The city engineer
announced his intention hereafter of
passing upon no final estimates until
reasonably assured that the board would
accept the work as submitted. The board
fully approved of his action in the mat
ter. Mr. Squire , representing the Barber
Asphalt company , whoso contract for
paving Davenport street between Ninth
and Tenth streets calls for the laying of
sheet asphalt , said he promised a certain
coal dealer in the vicinity to substitute )
nine feet of granite on a given distance
to facilitate thu passage of his carts , if
the board would approve the
change. He inquired if such an
action would vitiate the contract. The
board suspended action until they could.

morrow at 1:30 : o'clock as the time tor
McArthnr , the ex-inspector , was not
present as expected to enter certain pro
tests , but Mr. Helm rod told a funny
story about him to vary the dullness , as
follows : Desiring to gain pointer ? and
discover terrible revelations of miscon
struction as promised by McArthur , ho
ascended the man } * ladder steps leading
to the top of one of thu viaducts and ex
pressed no surprise because he saw
nothing wrong in thu work. Ho wan
then promised thu actual sight of cracked
iron in the bridge , and ascended more
stei > . Much fatigued , he strained his
vision but could discover no flaw In the
iron. Turning to MbArthur ho said in
"My friend , ( see no crack in thu snot
"Oh yes , but there will bo a crack in it
soon , " replied McArthur assuringly.
DOWN THIS STURAM.
Tlio Steamer Itcnlou Floelnjt From
the Unprofitable Upper Waters.
Last uvunlng the steamer Ucnton , ar
rived at the foot of Farnam street and
put up there until this morning , nlicn
nho continued her journey to St. Ixiuis.
The llcnton passed up thu river during
the great freshet of 1881 and many of the
clti/.ons of Omiha of that day will re
member that the Missouri was so high at
the time that thu boat steamed into the
Union I'acilio shop yards and coaled up
there before continuing her journey.
Since that time , shu has been , with half a
( lo/.en other boatc , plying between His-
marck and Fort Uunton , a distance of
about eleven hundred miles.
In thisvorK , thu boat , with
live or six others has been making
about four trips a yenr. Since the com
pletion of thu Manitoba road , however ,
tin ; uusinosb of the steamers has greatly
decreased ami as a consequence at least
live of them will return to lower waters.
Tim limiton Is tlio second of these which
has already started for homo. The
other * are expected at intervals of a few
duyu. Captain MvOcary was in charge
of the boat as she wont up the river , but
lie has been called to Davy Jones' locker
and been succeeded in command by
