T/ixnox , May 31. This i.i Derby day , the
greatest day In the yearly annals of the
British sporting world , when every Lon
doner nnd resident of the provinces who cm :
possibly do so makes his way to Kpsom
Downs , there to witness the always exciting
race for the Derby stakes. The day dawned
dull , with occasional sunbursts. At times It
was threatening , hut on the whole the
weather was lino. The usual immense
crowds wcro present at the course nnd the
familiar scones of bustling , hustling , good-
natured crowds reaching the Downs wcro
In spite of the refusal of the House of
Commons to adjourn over , some members
could not resist the temptation to witness
the race , nnd , throwing business nsido. , hied
themselves to ttio Downs. In some quarters
of the city It appeared ns though it was n
holiday , nearly everybody having gone to
sco the raco. Even business In the Stock
o.Tchnngc was materially affected by the ab
sence of members , who for the once put
away their bull nnd boar proclivities nnd ,
going to Epsom , made ventures more or less
successful on horses Instead of stocks nnd.
bonds. The race was well contested and the
favorite won.

Will Hun frniit n Good Start.
When the horses were brought out the
sun was shining brightly. The weighing
was done promptly , but the preliminary can
ter delayed the start. It was exactly
2:18 : when the flag fell to a good
start. Son of a Gun went away
in the lead , but Lord William soon
dashed to the front and set the pace , fol
lowed by Itoyal Harry , Ilaoburn , William
and Irish Wake , which were running in a
bunch close up and which were in turn , folr
lowed by Son of a ( Jun , Pepper Com and
TsmgUfes in the oilier named. Behind-tho
last thteo above came llaAcnsbury with
Dame * President last. Before reachIng -
Ing Sherwood's Lord William drew clear of
the btmch. which had been running him
closely ; Hero the other horses changed positions -
-sitions , William being lirst behind Lord Wil-
ll'im , followed by Quickly Wise , Pepper
Corn and lioyal Harry , running nearly on
equal terms , while behind them came line-
burn , Sou of a Gun , D.imo President , with
Isinglass , the favorite and llavcnsbury
bringing up the rear.
At the mile post Isinslass , who had been
Klvcn his head , had como through the ruck
nnd was running second , William third and
Jlacburn fourth , with Irish Walco , Iloyal
Harry , Quickly Wise and Pepper Corn run
ning in a bunch. Son of a Gun had fallen
hack and was bilnging up the rear of the
On the r.ant Half.
When the last hilltop was reached. Lord
'William fell back beaten. In the meantime ,
William had passed Isinglass , as Had also
llacburn , and Wllllum was in the front.
Isinglass was running third , followed by
Iloyal Harry , Irish Wako , Pepper Corn and
Son-of-u-Gun in ft bunch , while Quickly
Wise and Lord William were at the tall of
the race. Half way down the hill , Ilaoburn
headed William , and immediately after
Isinglass and Iloyal Harry passed William
also. As they came into tiio straight , Isin
glass , who was running on thu inside of the
track , went to tlio front , closely followed by
Ilaoburn , Iloyal Ilarry , Popper Corn and
Ilavcushury. When the distance posV
was reached , Ilavonsbury 'had passed
Iloyal Harry and Popper Corn and
was running third. Coming on , llavcnsbury
gradually overhauled nnd passed Ilaoburn ,
but could not got near Isinglass , who was
making a beautiful race. Tlio others were
running iu tills order : Pepper Corn ,
Quickly Wise , Iloyal Harry , Irish Wako ,
Bon of a Gun , D.imo President and William.
Lord William's saddle girth broke and his
jockey , Mullen , was thrown. This , of course ,
put Lord William out of the running. Isin
glass maintained his lead from Itavonsbury ,
ajd | coming on , won tlio race by a length
nhd a half. There were two lengths be

NKW VOIIK , May ill. The opening day of
the New York Jockey club's spring mooting
proved to bo an one as far as tlio
weather was concerned. In fact , the
weather was so unusually line that by noon
largo crowds had already reached the

imirkably largo. On the balcony in front of
the club honsu at least fifty luncheon parties
worn under way at half-past 13 , wlillo later
In the day tlm grand stand was filled
with thousands of lovely ladies ,

persons had paused tlio turnstilesbut people
were still coming and they continued to

Metropolitan handicap , which is rc-
pmlou as lei-ond only in Jm-
iv > vtanco to the Brooklyn handicap ami
the Suburban. Carriages and coaching
parties there were in plenty , and they com
pletely flllod that portion of the grounda set
apart for them. There were 25,000 people
present whtmlbo boll tapped for the handi
cap.The Pepper , ono of Marcus Daly's repre

but bo heavy was the play on nearly every -7

Charade and Pickpocket were all well

unchanged to where the ascent of the hill

Illchncss nnd others began moving up nnd
moro or less crowding. Suddenly ono of the
horses In the van , Arturo , was seen to fall
and the horses la the rear apparently gal
loped over the horse and rider , causing the
spectators to cry m horror. "W lion attention
was ucaln rlvoted to the races , It was seen
that Picknlckcr was still In front , setting a
merry pace up the hill with St. Kiorlan ,
Pessara , IIla Highness and Charade his

Turning to the stretch , Chnrado

The election of ottlcora was the first thing
hat occupied the attention of the State
Business Men's association In convention ns-
emblcd yesterday mornlngbut Itdld not take
eng to settle It , as a motion instructing the
ecretnry to cast the full vote of the nssocla-
ion for the old ofllcors carried unanimously.
The olllcors who were thus elected to sue-
"ccd themselves for another year were :
r * D. Davidson , Omaha , general president.
O. J. King , Lincoln , llrst vlco president.
II. J , Leo , Fremont , second vice president.
S. S. English , Eagle , third vlco president.
R. P. Hodgln , Omaha , general secretary.
F. II. More , ICoarnoy , llrst assistant sec
S. 11. Colvln , McCook , second assistant
C. P. Iddlngs , North Platte , third , assistant
Tlio greater part of the tltno of the morn-
ng session of the last day of the convention
was taken up in discussing what should bo
done with reference to the collection law.
ttid tlio prevailing opinion scorned to be that
; ho law as it now exists should bo amended
at the next session of the legislature. It was
admitted that thus far the efforts of the
association , in tiio way of lobbying had not
been attended with the most brilliant suc
cess , but It was asserted that this was
because the work had been left entirely to
the legislative committee and Ignored by the
body as a whole , while It should have boon
attended to personally by each member
through the representatives and senators
from tils district. It was agreed that this
mlstako should not bo made again ,
Tulkod of Homo Patronage.
Before proceeding with the regular pro-
gram for the session \V. A. P.igo ' , preside !
of the Manufacturers and Consumers associ
ation , was introduced to speak on "Homo
Patronage. 1t 1 " Ho said ho had been devoting
1i the t greater part of his time for several
weeks to the exposition that was devoted to
the t public ndvocaey of this Wea. Ho called
attention to the fact that the majority of
i the business men of the state showed plainly
that I lu onu particular , at least , ttioy wcro
going j outside the state to liavo work dona
that I could just as well bo dona at home , and
that I was in the use of foreign printed bank
checks and drafts. Ho said he had paid
close l attention to this for the past year , and
had I noticed that drafts that his lirm had re
ceived from all over tha state were printed
in i St. Louis , Milwaukee , Kansas City or
Chicago. I Ho thought this was wrong , as
there were houses iu this state that could do
the work as well as It could bo doiio any
where. It was most fitting that the local
printing and newspaper ofllccs should receive -
ceivo this patronage , as they were all the
time assisting the business men , and ho be
lieved that the whole trouble was that the
business men had not thought of what was
really 'it stake nnd what homo patronage
meant. The speaker related a number of
incidents to show that the consistent prac
tice of the principles advocated by the asso
ciation , of which lie was president , would
result in mutual benolit to every business
man in the state , and called attention to
what the effect would bo on a dealer iu a
certain line to have a man talk homo patronage -
ago to him while wearing apparel , invjrjch
his auditor was dealing , that was bought
outside the state.
DrloKiites Approve the Principle.
Mr. H. J. Leo of Fremont said that the as
sociation wanted the manufacturers of the
state on their side , and ho was glad that the
matter had been brought un. Ho thought
that the1 principal trouble had been tnat No-
brask.i made goods had not been brought to
the attention of the merchants as they
should have been. After the mooting of the
association a year ago there was complaint
from Grand Island because factories there
had received no notice , but it was the fault
of the delegates from that place , who had
not mentioned anything about them or
brought them to the attention of the mem
bers. Ho wanted to sco the manufacturers
and retailers get together and como to a bet
ter understanding.
Mr. Dort of Beatrice said he had tried to
educate his trade along the homo patronage
idea , and was pleased with the result. Ho
wanted to call attention to the fact that his
town was turning out as good creamery but
ter as could bo gotten anywhere , and also
manufactured starch , oat meal and numer
ous other articles that ho was pushing.
Mr. King of Lincoln was glad to note that
Mr. Page was noticing all the Jittlo points ,
but ho wanted it understood that in his city
the checks weru furnished by the banks , and
the dealers did not have them printed for
their own uso. Ho suggested that the way
to reach It was by calling the matter to the
attention of the bankers on the occasion of
their next convention and ask them to cor
rect It and have the printing done in Ne
Wliolunalor * Doing Itetull Trade ,
Mr. Burks of Lincoln said that there was
trouble in some places because some of the
wholesalers did a retail business in the same
places. Ho thought It unfair for a whole
saler to como into a town where ho was soiling -
ing to a retailer , and supply the hotels ,
restaurants , or laundries at the saino price
as the same goods were sold to tiio retailer.
Ho wanted each clas to respect the rights
of each other class.
Mr. Page said that the little talk that had

had resulted in leaving oft outside imprints
on checks , but It had boon ascertained that
the printing was .still helm ; done outside
the name of tlio printer being loft of by re
quest. This showed .hat the bankers
uould accede to the demands made , but not
yet in the way desired.
Mr. Hodgln said tlmt this would bo at
tended to , and the banks would bo required
to have the name of u Nebraska printing
house on the checks.
Mr. lliilgoway of Grand Island pleaded
guilty to not being an orator , and said that
the talking businessmen of his city had boeu
unable to get away. Ho spoke of several of
tliu factories there , and said ho did not know
why they wcro not represented at the ox-
position. Ho proposed to inquire into It us
soon as ho got home.
Tim report of the railway committee was
called for , and Mr. Hodgln said that Gen
eral Manager Holdrcgo of the B. & M. bad
been waited on. lie was surprised to learn
tlmt the depots wcra being used by peddlers
us distributing points , and had promised
that if the other roads would do thu same ,
he would issue an order prohibiting it. The
announcement was greeted with applause ,
and the report was accepted ami tlio com

For Hotter Collection I.U\VB.
Mr. English of Eagle offered u resolution
looking to better collection laws.
Mr. Hammond of North Platte offered a
substitute- resolution , stating that there was
no need of uny collection law with the now
rating book of the association. Ho said
thut the association had mot with poor suc
cess in the way of securing desired legisla
tion , as tlm labor organizations wora TOO
strong , and efforts la that direction hud only
tended to antagonize the labor element. Ho
thought It hotter to go on the 1107 plan and
give no credit except to parties who were
certainly good.
Mr. King of Lincoln favored the substi
Mr. Wilcoic of McCook said that ro
ought to bo a remedy for the collection of
accounts now on the books. Ho did not ba-
lleve the members would lose anything ay >
stuudltig up for their rights and seeking uet-
tor legal protection against dead heats. Itof
Mr. llobtettor of Sholtou spoke in favor of
a good , reasonable collection law , aud wanted
the association , when it went after it , to go
after it lu earnest. If they did that they >
would got It.
Mr. Ilawlhigs of Wakofleld said that the
rating hook was all right to help from mak
ing bad debts , but there ought to bo a col
lection law to afford relief after they were
contracted. He was confident of it because
be wan u democrat , and know what it was to
bo out In the cold , and therefore rcatUod
that they could pot tHaro ff they only waited
long enough. '
Mr. Clarke of North FJatto thought the
ratintf book would work , out their salvation
In duo time , ns the tfustomors who were In
arrears would bo clnmbrinK for n law that
would nrotect the merchant in Rlvlnp them
greater credit if they were refused such
credit according to the book uudar existing
law. ] ' I
Itnttnc Iloot n 3'itUnncc.
B. W. Johnson of Atkinson made a rat-
tllnif speech In favor of n' better collection
law. Ho said that aecdrdlhR to his belief
the rating book was n nutsnnco and a fraud ,
nnd that It would not afford the relief that
was desired , A man might bo nil right now
nnd have a good rating , but six months from
now ho might bo all wrong , and the book
would bo of no assistance in collecting an
account that might have boon incurred In
the meantime ; neither wouht It avail In col
lecting n bill from a man who could pay but
wouldn't. Ho didn't take any stock In the
talk about a more stringent collection law
keeping eastern capital out of the state , nnd
for his part wanted to see n law that would
put a premium on honesty rather than on
dishonesty ,
Mr. Bishop of Lincoln defended the rating
book , but favurod a hotter law. Ho said the
prcjcnt one tended to nmko men dishonest ,
and ho was In favor of legislating the other
way. The way It was now , the more a man
could heat a creditor out of the better fellow
ho was , and ho wanted to sco It so that when
n man willfully refused and neglected to pay
his bills ho could bo shown up to the com
munity in his true light.
The sentiment of the delegates was to the
effect that the. matter was ot too much Im
portance to bo settled so long before the
next session of the legislature , nnd the sub
stitute was defeated , after which the orig
inal resolution was tabled , to nwalt action
at the next convention.
Mr. Ilawlhigs was appointed chairman of
the legislative committee.
The committee on the Torroy bankrupt
law , consisting of yours. Bishop of Lin-
coin , Lee of Fremont anil Notzol of Strains-
burg , submitted a report , endorsing the bill ,
recommending its passage and calling upon
Nebraska senators anil representatives in
congress to work and vote for it. The re
port was adopted , and a recess was taken
until 3 o'clock.
Virtuot ot Invoicing.
At the afternoon session n paper on "In
voicing Its Bonollts and Necessity to llotall
Alorchants , " was road by Air. John Ilussio
of Omaha. Ho hold that in no ono way was
a business man's ability and enterprise
shown , and by no ono thing was ho better
iittod for the next year's business than In
the taking of ttio annual Inventory. It Is
necessary in order to compare ono year's
business with another , and to ascertain the
merits of different classes ot goods. It pro
vides a basis for satisfactory settlement
with the Insurance companies in case of lire ,
nnd also assists in securing a favorable
rating with the mercantile agencies , which
is not only desirable , but absolutely essential
in successful buying. It insures the clean
ing of the shelves and the dusting of goods ,
and discovers goods that have been lost or
gotten out of place. It discloses what bid
fair to become shop-worn goods , nnd leads tea
a prompt disposition of them , which averts
the tying up of r. considerable sum of money
where it would be unproductive.
The uaperwas applauded , and the Ideas
advanced were earnestly endorsed by
Messrs. King and Burks of Lincoln , G. S.
Benawa of Omaha , S. S. English of Eagle ,
Fred LoomLs of Omaha , Henderson of
Osccola , llawlings of Wakellold , and Leo of
llonotlt.s of Orcnnlzntlon.
Mr. ITostotterof Shelton , palled on to give
his views on "Stato Organizations and Their
Value , " said that It was'of the utmost im
portance that the meetings of the branches
bo regularly attended ana that Interest bo
maintained in order that tlio state organiza
tion bo kept alivo. Ho pointed to the report
of the committee on 'railroads ns showing
what the state organization could accom
plish , and said that it was simply u case
where there was strenethi In union even If
there was none as Individuals.
The good results to bo expected from state
organization wcro testified > to by a number
of the members.
A telegram was then-rend from a number
of the business men of'Curtis. Nob. , protest
ing against the placing , pu sale there by a St.
Joseph wholesale firm elf a stock of goods
t iken under a chattel mortgage , and request
ing the convention to take some action
toward securing its removal or selling it to
the local merchants. It was decided to send
a latter to the firm setting forth the situ
ation , and asking that the local merchants
bo given fair treatment in the matter.
The following committees were appointed :
On State Trade J. C. Dort. Bui-chard ; E.
J. Pease , Hastings ; W. E. Babcock. Cam

to consider the invitation in agreeing upon
the place.

The Commercial club extended a cordial
reception to the delegates to the State Busi

Commerce last evening. It was a highly
successful affair In every respect.
The rooms wcro artistically drnpod with

ments to the giicsU in n punctilious manner.
The Seventh Ward military band of twenty-
ono pieces g.ivo n musical feast.
In behalf of tha Commercial club \V. A. U
Gibbon made the following address of wel
come :
"Tho present occasion marks nn era In the
progress of the mercantile social lifo of
Omaha nnd Nebraska. Wo meet hero to
night associates and friends with a view of
building up a social comity between the busi
ness men of our state nnd the merchants of
the metropolis. The aim ot the commercial
club as Its name signifies , Is to blend social
features with our business cares. In thcso
fraternal mlngllnes upon a piano of mutual
converse It Is reasonable tohopo for benefits ,
not only from the social order , but from tlio
lights and shadows of the past wo may ex
change ideas gathered from experience that
will guide and strengthen our future foot-
"Wo need the strengthening Infiucnco of
some council llko this. In the building up
of such an organization as the Commercial
club there is strength alike safe to the In
dividual , the corimration and the stato. A
great metropolis within the state is n tower
of developing the natural resources of that
state , not only ns n market and distributing
center , but through its great financial In
stitutions , banks , insurance and trust com
panies the sinews of war are furnished to
turn the wheels of commerce without depending -
pending upon Boston , Hartford or Wall
"Our interests , gentlemen of Nebraska , nro
identical with yours. Wo vote for thu saino
state ofllclals , our business relations are alike ,
our social meetings should bo based upon u
common friendship. A crowd Is not com
pany , faces are but a picture gallery , and
talk Is but a tinkling cymbal , when there is
not friendship. Omaha has passed the ex
perimental stage as a wholesale market. Wo
welcome you not only as customers but wo
extend to you the right hand of fellowship
and ask you to be associate members of our
Commercial club. "
J. S. Bishop of Lincoln responded in a
happy speech , in which he voiced the deep
appreciation of Omaha hospitality. Im
promptu speeches were made by Edward
Yates of Lincoln , J. S. Knox , Thomas Kil-
palriek , Dan Farrcll and Judge Clarksou of
Omaha and II. J. Leo of Fremont. The en-
joyauio affair terminated at midnight.

The rain yesterday kept n good many poo-
ilo away from the exposition , but In the

ilo came out In full force , filling the CoMseum
building comfortably full , The exhibits
were at their best , the machinery nil in op
eration nnd the whole exposition In the
best condition possible to Interest the
; > ubllc. The crowds moved back nnd
forth among the exhibits ami If the
remarks of the people were to bo taken ns
mlicattng tholr thoughts they were cor-
-alnly well satislled with what they saw ,
A good many prominent citizens -were
loticod among the visitors and the crowd
was made up very largely of the best people
if Oin.ih.i. Kx-Ciovcrnor Saunders and Mrs.
lU33oll Harrison wcro among the most ob
servant visitors , giving close attention to
every exhibit.
This evening a largo attendance of grocery

Quito a good many are asking if the expo
sition will bo in good shape on Saturday
night. All questions of this kind are being
answered in the alllrmative. 1'ho exposi
tion will remain open on Saturday night nnd
no one will bo allowed to take any exhibit
out of the building until after the hour for
closing on Saturday night.
The pupils of the High school and of the
Central Park school will bo adniltled to the
exposition today.
Homo Tiuluotry 1'lour.
Money Is scarce in Omaha , why raako it
anymore so by sending the money you make
to Minneapolis for Hour , when by purchasing
the Omaha Milling company's ' Kolianco ( lour
you will bo getting the best and at the same
tlmo aid in building up homo industries. Tliu
Kclianco brand Is .becoming very popular bv
reason of its excellence and the people of
Omaha are showing by a liberal patronngo
tholr appreciation of a good thing. During
the past week 191,000 "pounds of Reliance
Hour was sold for delivery. A very interest
ing exhibit of the Kellnnco flour may bo seen
at the exposition where it is attracting a
good deal of attention. People who have
never used this flour uro given an opportunity
to test its good qualities by sampling
biscuits 1 made from it in the Omaha Milling
company's booth.
Crcto Kollcr .mils.
Nebraska floar is well represented at the
exposition , and the CrotoKoller Mills are
represented lu a manner that shows a com
mendable enterprise. ' Kxaot reproductions
or the "A" and "B" mills in miuituro nave
been erected , and oven to the painting they
resemble the originals. These Crete mills
are run by water power , and their combined
capacity is 000 barrels of Hour dally. The
splendid reputation which the output of
thcso mills enjoys throughout the state Is
dua to the watchful care which the proprie
tor , C. C. Whlto , uses iu conducting the
mills. Ho recognizes that "patronize homo
industry" is an effective slogan only when it
is backed up with an article which will
equal anything offered in the s.imo market.
Mr. White was tht first miller fn the state ,
and ono of the flrst in this country , to adopt
the new bolting device known as the "plan-
sifter" method. It is a Hungarian Invention
and now all the ilrst-cluss mills are adopt
ing it.
The Crete Roller Mills flour is used very
extensively In this city , where Its excellence
is well known. Tiio "Victor" brand is the
loader , and it has no superior in any flour
placed upon the Nebraska market.
Ullman'd Flour and Flowers.
It is n rather dlfilcult matter to arrange n
very attractive showing of ordinary Hour
sacks , but Charles E. Block , manager for S.
F. Oilman , has succeeded In embellishing
his exhibit , in the exposition in a way that
attracts attention. Flowers , plants and
vines are arranged around and among the
sacks in a manner which lends an air of
freshness and charm to an otherwise dry
subject. Two largo p.iin lings , ono of tlto
mill at Pierce and the other of the Valentino
mill , grace either side of the booth and add
their share to the embellishment ol the dis
play , The capacity uf these two mills is
about 400 barrels daily , the product being
exclusively hard wheat ( lour. In this city
tlioS. F. Gilman Hour is very well imown
and extensively used , the Gold Medal brand
being the leader. For a number of years
tliosu mills have had largo warn rooms at
1013 , 1015 and 1017 North Sixteenth street ,
from where the greater part of tholr Hour is
placed upon the market.
