Colonel Chase , who Is chairman of the
committee on plans and scope of the proposed
pan-republic congress of all the nations o !
the earth , which Is to bo held in so mo loadIng -
Ing city of the United States in 1893 , stated
that there was a fair chance to get it to sit in
Omaha. If it does not go to Now York city ,
then the New Yorkers nro "for taking it to
the center of the United States , and they are
nil In favor of Omaha. The congress
is to bo composed of the most
Tiromlnont men of the world and wil
bring together between two nnd three thou
nand delegates. China alone proposes to som
' 200 of her learned mon to participate lu Its
deliberations. The colonel says tno members
of the committed who reside lu Now York
have nsswcd him that If Omaha can accom
modate the congress It Is the second ehoico
already for its location.

PUEMOST , Nob. , March 30. To the Editor
of TIIK UKK. In looking over your editorial
of yesterday ( Sunday ) -'Have Tboy Been

made that thu World-Herald has boon again
casting aspersions on the railroad men and
would bavo the public- believe that railroad
men hnvo no sympathy with the corporations

'World-Herald void of soul.
But 1 hasten , Mr.Editor , ns an employe of
a railroad company , to give my tnsimiltlcant

You v 111 say perhaps that Fremont is of

There Is no American tour which combines

The traveler passes through the states of Ne

the great business belt of the west and at

Nebraska and Its prairies ; Colorado and its

the queen city of the Kocklw ; Salt Lake , the
Zlon of Mormonilom ; San Francisco , the
golden gate , and Los Angeles , the City of
Our Mother of the Angels , form a string of
Jewels of rarest water.
These are all prosperous cities : they arc
nil beautiful cities ; they nro alt wonderful
cities. KachisromarKablo for seine particu
lar reason. No two of them nro
alike in attractions and no traveler
can afford missing to SCO each and
all. In tbo months of Juno , July , August
nnd September the prairies of Nebraska , the
Kocky mountains , tbo valleys of Utah and
tbo great Sierra raugo are scon to the best
possible advantage. It is the fruit season of
California , tbo sight seeing period of all the
mountain countries and the pleasurable part
of the year for travel.

scribers obtained by Juno 10 , 1891 , allows
stop-overs at nil points of interest between
Omaha and Los Augclos. A week or a month

esque mountain resorts adjacent and another
week can likewise he enjoyed at Salt Lake In
hunting , fishlntr , sight seeing and bathing in

Niagara falls , the world's greatest catar
act , needs no glowing description. It cannot
bo described. Pouring over n precipice 1W )
feet high , the immense volume of water of
Niagara river , the outlet of the great lakes ,
llnds Its way toward the ocean. On either
side of tbo river are splendid views of this
tremendous waterfall , ubovo It and below it
nud nil about it are other scenes which hnvo
attracted travelers from all parts of the
world. Gout Island , tbo burning spring , the
whirlpool rapids , tbo suspension bridge , are
incidents merely to a visit to Niagara falls.
The field on which the battle of Lundy's
Lane was fought is within a few minutes'
drive on the Canadian side. Tbo facilities
for visiting all points of interest on either
side of the river are superior. The regula
tions controlling access to and from the sev
eral points now prevent the exorbitant
chorees which were formerly almost as fam
ous ns tbo cataract. A day or a few days at
Niagara falls Is ouo great event In an aver
age lifetime , and no American should over
think of visiung tourist resorts abroad until
ho has seen Niagara fulls. Ho can have no
appreciation of powcr.'of grandeur , of awo-
