lightful day that people forgot they lived
In houses , and kept out of doors to enjoy
the sunshine tempered with a cool autumnal
breeze. It was a rare day , and the public
appeared to appreciate that fact and took
every advantage of It. Before the first
chimes called the worshipers to divine serv

and drivers. In addition to pedestrians galore ,

remained out late , and some did not come

A vast concourse of people listened to the
sacred concert In Falrtnount park , Council

Idea of the trafnc to that point may bo ob
tained from the statement that the registers
of the bridge line cars showed that over
19,000 fared had been collected between the
hours of 7 a. m. and 7 p. m. All the rail
roads brought great numbers of visitors
Into the city. There was no special Sunday
excursion on any one railroad , but all of
them yesterday commenced to bring In the
State fair crowd , and thus far exceeds In

The afternoon train of the HurllnKtoii was

There was no general Illumination of the city

their lights , and the visitors had a fore
taste of the grandeur of the Illumination
this evening. Crowds gathered about the
corner of Fifteenth and Farnam streets , and
Interestedly gazed on the labors of the score
of workmen who tolled all night Uylng the
floor and completing other interior wood
work In jtho new structure now building

"The Last Chance" Is the title of the
comedy that will be placed on the stage of
Ak-Snr-Den tonight. This evenings per
formance at the big den of the Knights of
Ak-Snr-Hcn will conclude the engagement of
the troupe that has made over 1,000
trembling citizens pass through hunt ordeals.
Indications point to the largest attendance
that ever witnessed the Initiatory exercises
of his mightiness , Ak-Sar-Hcn III. The sale
of scats for thla evening's performance has
been tromendouH , but It Is announced at the
b/ix office that there are still a few more re-
srvcd scats left on the chart.
The title of the play on the boards for to
night Is explained by an announcement ol
the Hoard of Governors that this cveulng'o
ceremonies will be the last opportunity for
any male citizen reuldlng within the confines
of the kingdom of Ak-Sar-nen III to seek ad
mission to court circles. If ho should fall
to enter tonight the gates of the kingdom are
fbrover to bo barred against him. This
barrier Is uioro potent than would appear at
a superficial glance. Already a number of
merchants , professional men and railroaders
who have been prevented from associating
themselves with the Knights of Ak-Sar-Hen
earlier In the season have made application
to see the veiled mysteries this evening , and
It Is expected that there will bo a general

that had been done and that which yet re
mained to bo done.
The speaker distinguished between the
homo missionary society and the foreign
missions by relating them to each other.
Iloth proceed from the same source , they are
actuated by the same desire , but the work
ot ono lies at homo and the other In faraway
Unds. Mr * . Woodcock has evidently traveled
extensively. She gave a splendid description
of life In Chinatown , San Francisco. She

ments that are almost unendurable , but there
Is one consolation to Its denizens In that the

numerable stories upward they go down Into

SRNT RY GOD TO ALASKA.
Mrs. Woodcock spoke of the work In
Alaska. She told how ono little mission
had been planted there , how It had grown
and what a good work It was doing. In
speaking of the recent gold discoveries
there Mrs. Woodcock thinks that It was the
hand of God that directed the gold hunters
to that spot In order that the work of the
missionary might prosper. The speaker
paid a high tribute to the efficiency of the
Mothers' Jewels' Homo at thla place. This

tles that have beset It In Its work. This is

CHAMI1ERLAIN , S. D. , Sept. 19. ( Spe
clal. ) John H. Ktag of thla city , agent of
South Dakota In the claims pending against
the federal government , has Just made a
report to Governor Leo of the present
status of the various claims against the
government. There arc several of these
claims , amciig them the demand for B per
cent of the amounts paid the general km
office by settlera fo.1 lend's In the ceded portion
tion of the Sioux , Slsseton and Wahpeton
and Yanklon Indian reservations. The al
lowance of this claim would give the state
about $10,000. Another claim Is for 5 per
cent of the aggregate amount , based upon
the sum of $1.25 per acre , for all lands
embraced in Iho Pine Ridge , Rose
bud , Lower Ilrule. Crow Creek , Chey
enne River and Standing Rock reserva
tions , situated within the slate. The amount
claimed by the state by virtue of this Is
about $750,000. The state also clalinn a
percentage of the value ) of the lands allotted
to Indians on the1 Slsacton and Y&nkton res
The claim based upon the land embraced
In Indian reservations Is , of course , the most
Important , both as to the legal points and
amount Involved. The .precedent for the pay
ment of this claim was established by con
gress In 1855 , when the claim of Alabama on
similar grounds was gmiteci , and by an act
of crrigres1 ! of March 3 , 1857 , granting the
same benefits to Mississippi and other states.
Slnco that tlmo the sum of $9,292,453.89 haa
been paid to six southern and seven middM
states under thlj tr.d supplementary acts.
A strong point raised 'by ' Mr. King for the
allowance of South Dakota's claim Is that
the Indians , being wards of the whole people
ple , are , when placed cm reservations In any
particular state , occupants of lands which
would otherwise tye taxable and pny a reve
nue to the suite and that the government
should accordingly reimburse the state
to at least , a > Blight degree for
the lands thus withheld from taxation.

That gem of Irish farce-comedy , "Mc-
SoMey s Twins , " opened a week's engagement
yesterday at Hoyd's , playing twti perform ,
nnccs to very satisfactory business. The
piece Is practically unchanged B.AVO In. respect ,
to the cast , which Includes this year the two
well known Irish comedians , John Tlerni-y
nud ilark Murphy , who have been now fur
n good many years diverting audiences with
their differing styles of humor , and that
genuine artist nnd always acceptable per
former , Marie Stuart. Nat M. Wills does a
tramp turn , Ilorwltz and Bowers glvo SOURS
nnd Imitations and Marguerite Ferguson
shows herself a clever dancing sotibrette.
whllo the Addis sisters constitute a charming
feature of the performance. There is abund
ance of light and catchy music , and alto
gether the entertainment ought to attract
good pationagc during fair week.
A largo crowd attended the opening per
formance of Hoyt's "A Milk White Flag" at
the Crclghton last night , and SAW Iho
beauties of that drama unfolded by n very
competent company , which Includes some
members of far more than ordinary ability.
The piece Is remembered from a former looil
presentation , and Is known to bo a carica
ture , of thu kind peculiar to Mr. Iloyt , of the
American citizen soldiery and , Incidentally ,
of death , bereavement , the domestic iclatlons
and other foibles which draw the lightning
of the author's delicate wit. Who but Mr ,
Iloyt could conceive , for Instance , that
startling- ! natural scene where the soubrctto
executes a skirt dance for the delectation ot
the soldiers who have come to arrange for the
funeral of her father , supposed to be lying
dead In the next room ? The keenness of the
satire on filial affection Is such ns to in-ne.
trato the dullest comprehension.
The company Is generally adequate to the
demands made upon it. Since stage trumps
must be , Oscar Hall docs much to reconcile
public taste to the monstrosity. Some of his
feats of agility approach the marvelous. And
the hit of the entertainment Is unquestion
ably made by that airy llttlo sprite , Mary
Marble , who Is an artist from the IOCH of her
dainty shoes nil of four feet to the crown ot
her sunny head , and In whatever guise never
falls to captivate and charm.
"A Milk White Flag" will wave through
out the week nt tlio Crclghton , and largo
audiences will doubtless gather under Ita
At both theaters , on the nights of parades ,
the curtain will bo held until nfter the street
