r The Parade.
The streets In tlio heart of the city yes
terday displayed unusual activity at an
early hour. They were thronged with vehi
cles , mainly of the lighter order , while the
sides worn packed with a dense though con-
sttintly moving mass of human beings. There
woru few In tlio throne und among the occu
pants of the vehicles who were bunt on busi
ness. The great majority was In sympathy
with the occasion , and with the decorations ,
which shone and Muttered on every hand ,
bore testimony to thu fact that
the occasion of the parade. of
the Grand Army veterans was a
holiday and such a holiday as Omalia had
never baforn experienced. Not nlono the
streets and walks were tilled with people , tlio
windows of every building also , contained
thousands of anxious spectators who waited
patiently for tlio appearance of tlio veterans.
At ten o'clocK , thu soldiers formed in the
camp nnd took up tholr tedious march to the
city. The roads were soft in places , and some
care was required to avoid the mlrv spots.
As a consequence , tlio progress of tlio column
was Blow , and It was not until ten
minutes past 11 o'clock that the right of the
column appeared at thu bund on North Six
teenth street. The first distinguishable fua-
turn of thu advance was the glistening rifles
of the Infantry , which as they advanced ,
revealed to view a background formed by the
dark-red trimmed holmcts of the artillery ,
More delay was experienced , and then came
hundreds ot teams of all descriptions which
had been driven back by the police who acted
as the advance uuard of the parade.
About this time Governor Thayor. Mayor
Broatcli and Senator Mandcrson tool ; places
on a .stand erected for them at JelTerson
square. They were soon joined on invita
tion by Congressman Dorsov of Fremont ,
John Watson of Nebraska Citj. Mr. Van
Wyck and several other gentlemen.
In advance of the procession rode Officers
Mostyn and O'Brien , keeping the main part
of the street clear Irom vehicles , and at a
distance ahead of the right of the line rode
Chief Seavoy and several other mounted oUl
cers , who cleared the sides of
the streets ot all kinds of ve
hicles. Following them were two
lines of police , under the command of Cap
tains Corutick and Green. Both these offi
cers boie themselves with military grace , but
the same cannot bo said of the men under
tholr command , wno seemed sadly at a loss
to keep step with the music.
Following these came Commander II. C.
lUissell , who was the lirst to salute the eivlo
reviewing officers. He was attended by sev
eral of thu members of his statT.
Then came General Frank Whcaton , com-
mandlngthu intantry , with several members
of his fiUlT. These were followed by the
band of the Second Infantry under the lead
ership of Wledomover and with the ever-
gorgeous Sattes , the drum-major In advance.
The band was followed by eight companies
of the reginunt. The band of thu Eighth
Infantry succeeded and following It marched
four companies ot thu same regiment under
command of Captain Porter. They were suc
ceeded by the Twenty-first infantry band the
uniform of which dltl'uied from that of the
other musical Institutions In that they worn
spotless white pantaloons and had one of
most formidable drum-majors imagin
able In the lead. This band was
followed by four companies of the Twontv-
tirst under the command of Captain W. U.
lioyle. These brought the Infantry line to a
close. Next caimt tlio light battery of tlio
Second United States artillery , under com
mand of Colonel C. N. Woodnilf. There
were four three-Inch rilled cannon with all
their attendant supports. The appearance
of the battery with Its spirited horses , rum
bling wheels , and the rich red trimming of
the uniforms of the artillery men attracted
the undivided attention of the thousands
who ttironired the lino. Thu veterans of the
( } . A. 1C. composing the first division of the
line , continued under the command of Col
onel J. II. Culver. They walked under the
heads of states , In the following order :
Nebraska Veterans.
Illinois Veterans.
Ohio Veterans.
Mlchlsan Veterans.
Wisconsin Veterans.
Kansas Veterans.
Minnesota Veterans.
West Virginia Veterans.
Navy Veterans.
The second ill vision was under the com
mand of E. K. Valentine , of West Point , and
consisted of the following :
Iowa Veterans.
Indiana Veterans ,
New York Veterans.
Now England Veterans.
Now Jersey Veterans.
Missouri Veterans.
Prisoners of War.
Pennsylvania Veterans.
Regulars Who Served During the War.
Tim third division was commanded by
Colonel M. P. O'Brien , and comprised thu
members of the General Crook camp of the
Sons of Veterans of this city , under thu com
mand of Captain also a detachment
of thu bamu order from Iowa. Thu rear itf
thu line was Drought up by a largo number
of carriages and buggies containing enthusi 1-
astic and patriotic people , with whom rodu
many aeccl. Inllnu and maimed heroes of thu
war.Tho procession moved cast on Douglas
to Tenth , thuncu to Farnam nud thencu un
der the arch of welcome on tlio corner of
Sixteenth street which , after being passed I ,
Ihn procession disbanded.
All alunir tlio Hue It was viewed by thous
ands of people , many uf whom at interval sU
cheered tlio Infantry , artillery and tlio veter
ans. Passing between these living walls ufk
sympathetic friends and piles of stone , hi ick :
and Iron , hung with designs in many
colors , resembling European festivals
whun the heirlooms of centmles are hung to
commemorate Mime event of Impoitaiieo , tlio
line patented an Imposing appearance. '
Them was little left to oo desired in either
the music or the military air of the infantry
and thu artillery , wnlle , in a certain manner ,
the appearance of the veterans was not the
least ot the most Interesting features. It Is
true , their stop had lost its lUlitncss and
their toims the statellnes * which had on re
characterised them , hut then , they
walked with the stnrdlness of cam
paigners , nud the air of modest
victors , which wab entirely in harmony with
ttie spirit of thu cclubr.itlou. In passing
Ouster post hall , on Douglas- , street , the line
was elected with loud cheers , and when thn
Mill'ird was readied , a picture of General
John A. I.ogru educed hearty cheers from
many a participant In Ilioranks. The Pnxtnn
liotmvns elaborately decorated with gar
lands nnd between thn columns of the
portico were pictures ot Washington , Grant ,
Uncnln , Hancock , Losan and Cleveland. ! ! :
As the hostelry was passed emue of
tlio men dolled their hat * , ami tha
, of Custcr post dipped
his colors and trailed them on the pavement.
Tusterdav a Him was strung across Farnam
street troui the Ofllco ot the O. F. Davis Jtcal :
Cstafe company to that of A. J.
an < i oil tUla WM
Bended n picture of President CIcvewi
land. This was over the line of march , and
the latter would have been changed had the
emblcn been allowed to hang there. Ibis
morning , bower , through the mediation of
Mr. T. A. Crel n , the picture was removed ,
As consequence , the procession was carca
rled out without a disturbing episode.
Owing to tlio distance of the camp from
town , only a part of thu veterans were ablenr
to march , and this accounts for tin fact that
there were not more of the cucsts In line.
Van Wyok'n Speech liast Night.
Ono of the most noticeable of last nUht's
features ot thu reunion was the speech ot ox-
Senator Van Wyck. On his Introduction to
the veterans by the grand post commander ,
the cheers ot the throng were deafening and
the lusty calls of "Van Wyck , Van Wvck , "
evidenced his warm regard In the heaits of
the grand army mon. 'fo stop the continued
cheering the band struck up an air In which
the bass drum predominated and the inci
dent alToided the general an opportunity for
A happv exordium. Ho said : "Icanienere
to be un observer , not un actor In the scones
of to-day , but being forced Into action let my
part bo that of a peace-maker. 1 will offer a
compromise and It will nrovo for your enter
tainment If that bass drummer will prom
ise silence , 1 will keep quiet and Chaplain
Lozier will slinr , "Tho Sword of Bunker
Hill. " ( Laughter. )
Tlio general continuing , said : "As the
sword of Bunker Hill has been kept bright
these many yuan In song , perpetuating the
memories of the men whoie. heroism and
valor gave birth to the republic , so , com
rades. In after years will your triumphs bo
sung In strains recalling your bravery and
heroism in saving that republic In its hour
of danger. ( Applause ) . This Is the object
of our ornanlzatfon-to keep alive the names
of the dead who died for their country , and
to perpetuate the name of those who survive.
What a monument of glory to their posossors
are the sleeveless arms and the crutches vlsl-
bl to-day 1 ( Applaud . You are remem
bered , comrades. In you country's annals. "
Tno general then s'poko ot pensions. Great
Injustice ho said hnd been done the
G. A. R. by certain journals In declaring
that the organization proposed to deplete the
United States treasury by a wholesale sweep
for pensions , claiming service alone as a
recognized cause for bountv. This is false ,
and In thu utterance tlio U. A. R. had beeu
malicned , The G. A. 11. never asked a
pension for any man , unless ho could
piovo disability and dependence. ( Ap
plause. ) Tlm speaker knew whereof ho
spoke , because he had been chairman of the
pension committee for six years whllo lu
congress. It was not the G. A. It. wtio
proposed depleting the treasury , but another
class of men entltely. There were hun
dreds of millions of a surplus In the treasury
which should never have been there , and of
this portion the Giand Army asked its
bestowal as a reward upon the worthy men
who had sullered such disability for their
country's safety as rendered them mi-
able to work for their bread. To
what higher or holler purpose could this
monov be. devoted ? It was the people's
money extorted fiom them by excessive
taxation. Interested men opposed the dis
tribution of thu surplus as contemplated by
the G. A. R. and suggested Its application to
the payment of statu taxes.
Alluding to Cleveland's pension vetoes ,
the speaker said hla reason assigned was op
position to special pensions , yet his own
commissioner of pensions drew 5100 a month
by virtue of a special pension act. These
special pensions wire examined by the com-
mltteo with all the care , prudence and re
search over displayed by any court of Justice ,
and Cleveland's vetoes were without justiii-
cation on reason ,
The speaker continued in a happy vein forever
over a half hour , making some excellent hits.
At the conclusion of his speech ho was
long and warmly applauded by the 3,000 list
eners on thu ground.
The Illnniliuitcd Wheel.
The Omaha wheelmen , reinforced by the
Council Bin IT s Ramblers and a delegation
from Plattsmouth , gave an Illuminated pa
rade over the principal streets last night
There was a string of over ono hundred bi
cycles mounted , each ono having lighted lan
terns and handsome decorations. Tlio ex
hibition was a most creditable ono. attract
ing thu applause of thousands witnessing It
along the route. The Humbor tandem , dec
orated with Japanese hangings and ridden
by Messrs. Coombo and JollltTc , deserves es
pecial mention. Thu route of rldo was
from the street at the Mlllard to Sixteenth ,
to Cumlng , to Twentieth , countermarch to
Sixteenth to end of paving , counter
march to Farnam to club rooms. On
Invitation of Messrs. Clarke and Moultou
chief and local consuls respectively of the
L. A. W. thu wheelmen partook of refresh
ments at the St. Cloud , where thn delicacies
of the season vanished buforo whetted appe
tites. A night of song , story and jest varied
with refreshments , at thu club rooms on
Thirteenth street formed a lilting ending to
the enjoyable exhibition.

The Knlr's Third Day.
It was a beautiful day with 15,000 people on
the ground. The refreshing rain and thun
der storm of .the previous evening left the
atmosphere in a condition best calculated for
physical comtort , and the multitude testified
to their appreciation of this reliel from the
torrid heat of thu previous days by turning
out en masse. The G. A. R. parade in thu
city held the crowds until afternoon when
they be an pouring In with a rush. Tlio
people seemed to come fiom every quarter ,
Irom everywhere , springing up and filling
the grounds as if by nngic , and shortly
after the noonday hour the gieat enclosure
presented a lively and Interesting spectacle.
The din that arose from thu moving and
shifting throngs could bu heaid , like distant
roars of tlio ocean , lone beforu the giouuds
were reached. Until the hour when thoraces
races were called the great crowds occupied
themselves looking at the countless attrac
tions on exhibition. Floral hall and the line
art hall , and the bulldlncs occupied by indi
vidual exhibitors , weru literally jammed , nnd
not much satisfaction could bo had
In an endeavor to sea all the sights ,
they contained. Still a passngo through

idea of the lavMincss of the displays , and
the enser thousands seemed to enjoy the
operation de pito the discomforts that must
bo encountered.
The poultry department came in for a full
sharu of attention. And well It deserved It.

Yesterday afternoon nt the fair grounds
Captain John McDonald , deputy oil Inspector
specter , received a terrible wound in the
abdomen from a knlfu In thu hands of Ed
Scanlan , ono ol the newly appointed pollco-
Kcanlan was oir duty at the time , being on
the night force , and was at the fair as an
ordinary spectator. He and McDonald were
at the saloon near tne center of the grounds ,
when a misunileistandlng arlsln ? between
them , harsh words ensued , nnd finally blows.
Tlm men were separated and thu captain
withdrew. McDonald's lather , hearing of
thu fracas shortly afterwards , went to the
saloon and took Kcanlan to taste
for the assault on his sou. Scanlan replied
with nn onth , and drawing a hilly from his
pocket , he lushed furiously at the aid man
and struck him nvor the head four or live
times. The foicc ot the blows felled Mc
Donald lo the floor and knocked out three ot
his teeth. Olllcer Tiirnbull hap
pened to bo near by and took
the murderous policeman Into custody.
When Captain McDonald hcnid of this
brutal assault on his nged father , ho came
lushing uptothu scene , and springing upon
Scan Ion struck him two orthreo times with ,
his fist. Scitnlan jumped bnck and pulling
out a dirk plunged It Into McDonald's | ab-
donicn , and to make suioof disemboweling
his victim , ho drew the knlfn up
until It struck tlio breast bone , making n
wound over eight inches in lensth. McDon
ald fell on his face , nnd when hn was picked
up , tha bystandeis weru horrllicd to sea hla
bowels protruding , and the blood pouring
from thn wound In streams. Hn was
taken to the residence of Thomas
Ciimmlngs. near the fair grounds ,
nnd n physician was mnninonud. A earful
examination ol the wound showed that the
knlfn had entered just nbovo tlm naval , and ,
though completely rupturing tlio walls of the
nbdomep , had fortunately missed piercing
the viscera. Thu wound was sewed up ,
and every earn alven the sufferer.
Ho Is weak fram thu terrible loss of blood ,
but the physicians think theruarc some liopca
of nis recovery. The affair produced a pro
found sensation and an immense crowd ,
gathered around thu scene of thu tragedy.
Scanlan seemed the least excited man In the
