SAN SHHASTIAN. Spain , Sept. 20 ( Now
lYork World Cablegram S | > 3olal 'Iclegram- )
Gencral Wood ford , the United Slat B minis
ter , In his three houm' interview with Iho
duke of Totunn Saturday , prcsenlcil lo the
Spanish government no demand for the pay
ment of money on account of American losses
in Cuba He confined himself to a very te-m-
l > eratu statement of the great losses snstalne'd
liy American commercial and Industrial In
terests because of the long continued war ,
and urged upon the Spanish government the
view that 11 Is evidently Impossible for Spain
to crush the rebellion within a reasonable
time He argued that even If the rebellion
should be crushed by tire methods nlthcrto
adopted by General Weyler the Island would
be so completely devastated as lo be ot no
USD to Spain or to the Cubans. General
"Woodfoid then Insisted , temperately but
earnestly , that the war must bo brought lo
a. speedy termination. It this were not ac
complished by the end of October , the min
ister said , the Unlled Slales must consider
Itself at liberty to do whatever It shall then
deem necessary lo secure complete and per
manent peace In Cuba.
The duke of Tetuan Informed Ihe queen of
what General Woodford had said. The mes
sage surprised mil pained her. She ex
pressed readlnobs to go to Madrid directly If
the government considered her presence
neccbsary lo concert a reply clearly stating
Spain's determination to maintain Its rights
iu Cuba.
I met Scnor Silvcla , leader ot the dissident
conservatives today. Ho assured mo hf
would unlto all of the opposition and heartily
support any government in resisting Ihe
American pretensions disclosed by General
Woodford ,
PARIS , Sept. 20. A dispatch from San
Sebastian , to the Temps of Ihls city says that
in his Interview ycbtcrday vvllh Iho duke ot
Tetuan , the Spanish mlnlbler for foreign
affairs , Ihe Untied States mlnhter to Spain ,
General Stewart L Woodford , did not pre
sent any claim far Indemnity , but confined
the Interview to a moderate phrabe In the
( statement of the great Injuries commerce
nnd Industry had suffered in the Untied
States through the prolongation of the Cuban
war. General Woodford Is said to have
added that Secretary Sherman had desired
liim to declare to the Spanish government
that It was evidently impossible for Spain
to end the rebellion In a reasonable time
nnd , further , that if the war was continued
Cuba would be devastated and of no utlllly
to Spain or to the Cubans.
In conclusion , the United States minister
Is reported to have Insisted courteously but
Jlrmly upon the necessity of terminating tlio
war , declaring that If It was not terminated
by the ci d of October the United States
nvoulil feel justified ta taking measuies to
eccure the Independence of Cuba.
The duke of Tetuan , according to the dis
patch to the Temps , while prolebtiiig against
alleged American "pretensions , " said he
would reply officially to the United Stales
minister when the Spanish couit retuins to
MADRID , Sept. 20. In official clrcleb hcie
the greatest secrecy Is maintained regarding
the United Stales ultimatum , which Is
looked upon as bound to cause a gicat
sensation In Curope nnd to have tlu greatest
consequences for Spain. While not intend
ing It , It Is believed the a tlnn of the
United States has greatly facilitated a solu
tion of the ministerial crisis nnd that theie
will be a rcorganl/atlon of the conservatives
under General Azcarraga , the premier , and
Don Francisco Sllvclla , the leader of the
dissident conservatives.
WASHINGTON , Sept. 20. It can be
Btated In reference to the Paris publication
purporting to give the substance of General
Woodford"s communication to Iho duke of

her and asked for assistance. Miss Ormo
flays she gave him A shilling and that then ,
without a word of explanation , the nun
drew a revolver and Ilred at her , the bul
let traversing her right breast and setting
her blouse on lire. Miss Orme'a assailant
lied and has not been arrested. The wound
Infllrtcd Is not a dangerous one.
When questioned as to the mollve for
Ihe seemingly murderous assault MKs Orme
attributed It to a continuance of alleged
persecutions to which , she says , she has
been subjected for ten years past at the
hands of a millionaire Hoston lawyer.

T01'iKA , Sept. 20. United States District
Jndgo Foster made a sweeping decision this
morning in which he declared the organUu-
tlon known as the Kansas City Live Stock
exchange Illegal under the provisions of the
nntl-trust law. The exchange Is an organi
zation of coniml alon mon , who control the
sale of live stocl : In Kansas City. All stock
which enters the city must pass tnroilgh
the hands ot this organization. Judge Fos
ter enjoins the commission from doing busl-
ne s and declares It an unlawful combina
The case vv s that brought by the United
States district attorney nearly a year ago ,
when Grecr , Mills & Co. , a Chicago-Kit sas
City flrm , was driven from the exchange ,
Tne firm was suspended for the non-payment
ot fines , aggregating $1,000 , and sued tor an
The association Is located on the Kansas-
Missouri Itae , n the Immediate vicinity of
the Kansas City Stock Yards company's
yards. The decision dcclaies that the ex
change Is clearly a combination whoso pur
pose Is to restrict , control and monopolize
the buying and selling ot live stock at the
Kansas City yards , and continues "The
methods and alms of mti y of these e\-
chcrmes and boards of trade arc not alto
gether beneficial to the business and com
merce of the count" } ' . The crying complaint
of tcJay , and the great menace to the wel
fare of the people is the tendency of wealth
to morop"Ilze and control by trusls and
comVi cs Hie producls and Industries of the
country , nnd It must be confessed by every
thoughtful observer that many of the so-
called stock and produce exchanges are
among the most potent Instrumentalities for
the accomplishment of these purposes by-
speculators and adventurers. "
1CANSAS CITY , Mo. , Sept. 20 The news
of the declblon rendered by United States
Judge FoUor , declaring the Kansas City Live
Stock exchange a violation ot the Sherman
anti-trust liw , caused a great deal of sup
pressed excitement at the slock yards here
Some members of the exchange say the
dissolution of the exchange will on a severe
blow to the live stock Intercntb If It stands
the test In the higher courts. They say the
business us carried on under the i riles of
the exchange has been reduced to a scien
tific basis and guarantees to every patron an
honest deal. I're&ldent John C. McCoy salu.
"Wo are In the hands of our lawyers and
until we see them we do not know what
action will be taken by the exchange. In
fact , wo do not know the full import of the
decision and are iu no position to say what
we can do "
Judge Foster defines the Interstate law and
says. 'It Is Indisputable that all the live
stock shipped to these defendants for sale
from states other than Kansas or Missouri ,
after it has entered the current of commerce
between the states , continue and remain sub
jects of such commerce until the transpoita-
llon is lerrniualed , and lire properly becomes
a part of the general property of the state.
It is also wnll settled that while this prop
erty Is the subject of liiteibtato commerce ,
no state , municipality or other power but
congress can Impoie taxes , restrictions or
regulations upon it , except so fur as proper
in the exercise of police regulallons for the
protecllon of Ihe health , morals and per
son of the citizen , and except for proper
charges and icgiilatloiis for the USD of local
Instruments , as aid or Incidents to such com-
neice , such as dockb , bridges , wharves , ele-
valorJ , ferries , pilotage , etc. "

WASHINGTON , Sept. 20. The State de
partment has not yet been notified of the
reported revolutionary outbreak in Nic
aragua. The uprising Is not unexpected , as
there has been much hostility among mem
bers of the conservative party to President
Zelaya's retention to tha presidency beyond
February next , when bis'first term expires
Grenada , the seat of the reported uprising ,
Is the chief city of Nicaragua and the center
of the conservative party' strength. It Is
said to have strategic strength , as It con
trols all the Nicaragua .canal country , In
cluding Greytovvn , the Atlantic entrance to
tl.e carol , and also control * Ihe cable which
connects Nicaragua with theoulslde woild
According to the union recently effected by
Nicaragua , Honduras and Salvador , under the
name of the G'eater Kepublle of Central
America , the military forces of the combined
states will be available to suppress the out-
bieak , but some doubt I * expressed as to
whether this treaty of mutual defense will
stand the test of a revolution.

The man who first conceived the Idea of
on Omnha organization that should brpuk
lown the barrier between this city and the
country BUI rounding It nnd who chose to
ctitltlo that Institution the natno of the
commonwealth spelled in Its reverse order ,
mil every reason to feel flattered as he
walked through the principal streets of
Omaha last evening and BOW the exhibition
of handiwork wrought through the influence
of the Knights of Ak-Sar-Uon and heard the
plaudits of thousands of boats and guests ,
Omahans nnd their visitors.
For two years the occasion of the Ne
braska State fair In Omaha lies been celo-
Drated with great pomp and ceremony by
the citizens of tills cltj. There have been
gorgeous decorations and brilliant illumina
tions. Hut on none of the prc\lous occa
sions has there been seen anything to
closely rival the blaze of glory that last
evening imido the streets of Omaha almost
as bright us at noonday and much more
picturesque. As It appeared Itut evening
Iho only work of previous displays of this
character has been to prepare the people
for what so auspiciously followed this sea
son.It doesn't take long to say that there were
over 3f > 00 Incandescent lamps and 120 big
nrc lights , in addition to those ordlmrlly In
use , giving forth their brilliant raya to II-
lumlno the streets lost evening. And It
doesn't take much longer to state that these
additional lights required the use of twenty-
eight miles ot electric light wire or to add
that over 5,000 Incandescent lamps burned
brightly on the principal buildings of the
business portion ot the city. It took a much
longer time , however , for the eye to take in
the Illuminations and for tlio mind to appre
ciate the work Involved In preparing for
such a veritable outbutst of electricity In the
form of light. No word picture can give an
accurate , .description of the appearance of
the principal htreeis of Omaha last evening
and neither can photography until that
science has been made more perfect in the
reptoduction of color. There was much
jrlghtness , but It was softened by the dis
play of so much color lh the effect was
not offensive and dazzling , but lather har
monious and pleasing.
Throughout the principal streets , Including
Farnam , Douglas Dodge and Sixteenth , theic
were long lows ot incandescent lamps sus
pended along both -sides of the streets. As
these lights were of variegated colors , for
the most part the green , red and yellow of
the Knights of Ak-Sar-ncn , they presented a
most attractive appearance. On each street
there was a myriad of these small lights , and
they totally changed the ordinary appearance
of these busy but unadorned thoroughfares.
The Illumination of the streets , though of It
self a feature pleasing to the great crowds
that walked the streets during the entire
evening , was Insignificant compared with the
far grander display on the leading public
and private buildings ot the city. Never be
fore has there been such elaborate decora
tion nnd illumination of buildings in Omaha.
The greatest crowds were attracted to the
top of the Farnam street hill , where the bril
liant Illumination of The Hoc building , the
county court house and the city hall com
bined to maKe a most wonderful scene. It
was the general verdict of the populace that
the county commissioners had eclipsed all
previous efforts In the magnificent decoration
and illumination ot the court house. In fiont
a largo American flag was formed by electric
lights of colored globes and the deft manipu
lation of the swltthboaid gave to tills Hag
the appearance of its folds being blown In
the breeze lielovv was a beautiful display of
the national colois spread across the entire
width of the main entrance. On the east side
was a largo star composed of small electric
lights. Along the four edges of the roof were
displayed small Hags of Ak-Sar-Bcn colors.
Th9 masslvo columns of the building were
wrapped In the same bold colors. It was the
dorao that attracted the greatest attention
however , and theie was scarcely a place
within the Lity Hmits where the b"ad of
lights encircling the head of Justice could
not bo seen. The dome and the largo statue
of Justice In her now gown of white apptarod
to the gientcst advantage , and were well set
off by the new coat of paint recently put on
the cornice of the building. From the four
corners of the building to the dome were
rows of Ak-Sar-Ben flags that will undoubt
edly make Samson and Samson , Jr. , feel very
good when they rldo along Farnam street on
Wednesday evening.
The Hoe building appeared well with Its
brilliant Illuminations. Over the main en
trance and the large windows facing Farnaui
street weio g'aceful curves of variegated elec
tric llghth , and the bold outlines of the buildIng -
Ing vvere made more prominent by lines of
Incandescent lamps.
The city hall was brilliantly adorned with
seveial hundred electric lights of Ak-Sar-Hen
colors , most of which vvere ranged In vertical
columns on the Karnam street front , while
the tower , lighted by horizontal lines of white
lights , appeared bettor by night than by day
'Ihe telephone building had its large windows
dews marked out with o most beautiful ! )
coloicd an ay ot lights.
The Millard hotel was ornamented with
Eevcial hundied white lights.
The main office and the branch olllccs of
the American District Telegraph company
worn brilllintly Illuminated.
Mnurcr'H was made easy to find by the sus
pension of seve Q ! rons of gaily colored elec
tric lights above the roof , meeting at the
tcp of a tall * llagpole.
All the railroad offices were hand-omely
decorated , but the palm of the passenger men
was fairly voted to the Qulncy route ofllce
whole several novel features were Introduced
in the window decorations.
The niks' Lluh looms were designated by
an Illuminated head of an elk and other deco
D-HM-IX Klpllnger's and several other
stores made noteworthy displays.
The Commeiclal club extended a hearty wel
come , which was shown In a bold design of
elect ) ic lights.
Nearly all the stores and the more promi
nent buildings wcru docoiuted with Ak-8ai-
Ben colors , and those that weio not. will be
by noon today , or Ak-Sar-Ben III will knoiv
the reason why.

the gauntlet of the ulenunts In iddlllon to

things seem to be working together to rnako

buildings are crowded with such a profu

sunshine and gentle breezes the big show
Is seen at Its best

While the people of Omaha were asleep
Sunday night a tremendous amount of work
was accomplished at the tali giounds. In
spite of the fact that there aio neaily ICO
carloads moio of exhibits err the grounds
than have ever been brought together In
this state 'before ' , the fill was more nearly
complete yesterday thin ii'-ual , and bo-
fure noon the remalLio of the debris had
lieen cleared awav and the big show was
lieifict with the exception or a few exhibits
in one or two of the hinallei buildings , whmo

While It was not expected that the first
day will bring any gieat novvd the attend
ance was eon'ldi'iably larger than is
usual on the openli'g day. The street
railway company fun lulled n five-minute
service around the loop , and the trains
were all crowded from early morning ,
The general expression of the vlsltois
was of astonishment at the Immensity
of the show , and the m it chronic pesslmlbt
was moved to enthusiasm al the unexampled
