A ilcllcloiiH menu was served In a highly satisfactory manner and when tlio cigars wcra II slit ml President Wattles rapped the iiBscmbly to order and the post prandLil exer cises proceeded In an Informal manner , The prealdcnt referred In a happy strain to the propriety of the largest ami most pop ulous of the traiiaiulsslBslppI atates being represented by such a largo and Influential delegation , and called Upon Mayor K. U. Moores to extend to the visitors a welcome to tlio city. Maor iMoorea said the people on this sldo of the rltcr extended the glad hand of wel come to tbolr gucsU from the other side. Ho complimented tlio delegation upon its size and Hindrance. He confessed to a friendly feeling for Mlssourlans because of the fact that ho liatl lived In Kansas City for about A year at ono time In 'his existence. The mayor then referred to the exposition , say ing that U would be Impossible to outrival the World's fair to eomo respects , but ho promised that the TrausmlssUslppl anil In ternational Exposition would tie an a broad lilun that will surprise all visitors to the city , lu conclusion the mayor extended to the visitors the freedom of the city. Clark IH. Sampson of St. Louis , chairman of the Missouri commission , was called on Jiy the toastmaster to respond on behalf of the visitors , and ho made a straightforward , buslncuB-Uko talk which carried strong coti- vlctlon In every sentence. In substance lie ipoko as follows ; "Tlio members of the ( Missouri delegation appreciate the expressions of friendship we beard for imperial Missouri. Wo come hero as to the gateway of the vast empire of the west. The growth of this ; city Is one of the wonders of the nineteenth century and no more fitting place could have been found for the great exposition which Is destined to exhibit to the world the vast resources of this prosperous section. Wo of Missouri take Just prldo In what you have accomplished to ward this exposition , because we are Amer ican * and Omaha Is a typical American city. " \Vo came hero expecting to see ulgns of progress ; wo have seen the pictures and reading matter which you have aent out In advertisement of your exposition , but wo did nnt expect to BOO the great things you have Accomplished. Wo have seen what Is a guaranty that the exposition will be a auc- cesrf and an honor not only to Omaha ibut to the entire American continent. You are do ing your work nobly and It ibehooves us to see what wo can do to make the exposition the success wo have determined It shall bo. Wo como from a state whoso resources are excelled by no other. Our reaourcea In minerals , agriculture , horticulture and prod , ucte of the cell and factory are unsurpassed and wo can make a display that will reflect credit on our state and on the exposition , It Is the purpose of our commission to do our utmost to this end and It Is our hope that our people will contribute of their abund ance eulllclent to not only make an uiulblt such ag I have mentioned but to build a homo at the exposition for Mlssourlana of which they may ibo proud and which shall bo a credit to the beautiful groundo you are preparing. I ehall return to my homo thor oughly enthused and I believe that we cannot - not do otherwise than have our ttato eo represented that It will bo a credit to our people and to the exposition.

A , Fa\ton of Kansas City , but Mr. Faxton had icon called out temporarily and W. C. Scan-lit of Kansas City was called for by some of his colleagues. Mr. Scarritt made his remarks ftomowhat brlof , complimenting tlio enterprise and courage which ho said had ibeen required to carry out .such a gl- gantlo affair as the exposition In the face of the depression which had enveloped the country. Ho said ithc people of Kansas City , next to ec-elng the exposition located lu their own city , congratulated themselves that It had 'been ' located In Omaha , In closing ho expressed the thanks of the Kansas City con. tlngoiit for the courtesy and attention which they had received suco | their arrival in Omaha. "Tho Objects and Purposes of the Exposi tion" was the topic assigned to John L. Webster. Ho referred eloquently and prac tically > to the benefits which will accrue to the entire transmUslsslppl section through the exposition and Illustrated his point by a remark made by one of the visitors , who had stated that the value of land In one of the counties In Missouri would bo Increased $5 per aero If the county took advantage of the opportunity offered by theexposition. . He described In on eloquent manner the way In which the tldo of commerce would be In- llueiiced by the great exposition of the re sources of the wcat , pouring Into the lap of thotjo broad valleys the vast wealth of the world. Ex-Mayor 0. I' . Walbrldge , chairman of the St. Louis commission , was called on to toll "What the Fourth City In the United States WillDo. . " Ho said : "I take It , Mr. Chairman , that wo have not been Invited hero to display Missouri eloquence or to hear a eulogy of St. Louis pronounced by QUO of her citizens , Wo have not come hero as aliens or as friendly allies of a cxrtrfmnnwcalth hut s coworkers ers In an enffjfjrise which is for the com mon good.

We shall tellittlem that U Is worthy of their beat efforts and worthy of all they call do to take part In every way. " George W. Fuller was called OH to sppak of "Kansas City's Part. " Ho spoke very briefly , saying the citizens of Omaha merit the hearty co-operation and support of every state In thlsQeslIjk Ho said the Missouri commission had been appointed about twenty days ago and the members were here on a mission of Inquiry , II. W. Richardson , the special commis sioner of the exposition to Missouri , waa cnllod on to spetik of "Our OiiDsts. " He made a short , but eloquent talk , reviewing his recent tripto , the Btato In the Interest of tlio exposition , and referring In terms of pratso to the courteous treatment ho had received on every hand. In closing ho ad dressed himself to the visitors as follows : FULL OF RNTHUS1ASM , "I trust your visit here , the knowledge nnd Information you have gained will be anew now and renewing Inspiration that you may carry back to your state ; that It may per- nieato every Department of your work : that It may have magic to exercise such un bounded enthusiasm as will consume the grand old city of St. Louis Ilko an electric spark ; then sweep the angle of the Missis sippi and the Missouri ; set the sturdy Teu tons of St. Charles In motion ; stand like "Hannibal" before the gates of the Tunic City ; then from border to border , burn like a retort In the "queen city of the north west , " that "there might be a hot tlmo In that old town ; " ring out like a flro bell In the night In the majestic city of the Kaw ; scale the walls of Jasper , magnetize the metallic cities , murmur "neath the classic shades and limpid streams , amid , the roses of fair Carthage , clrclo the zenith city of the Ozarka , where King Cotton , King Corn and red apples hold high carnival In friendly commerce , and wove through the vast forests of the ooutheast , settle like a searchlight on the dome of the capital and Illumine the central cities , bedecking the bosom of your heaven-blessed commonwealth.

Make Missouri matchless and re splendent In this galaxy of progressive states that you may receive the commenda tion of her people aud have her praises sounded from , the Klondike to the jetties , and from Port Arthur to the zenith city of the unsalted seas. " Colcciel John Donlphan of St. Joseph , the vice [ resident of the exposition for Mis souri , was called on by President Wattle.3 , but excused himself from making a talk by saying that he had arisen from a olck couch to como to Omaha. He reviewed the work he had done In connection with the expo sition ! m spreading the news throughout hl-i state and expressed the conviction that the state would lake advantage of the oppor tunlty offered It to display Its resources. He said ho concurred fn all that had been said and believed the exposition will bo a great success. A Manager Edward Hosewatcr was calledJ on by the presmfint to tell about the work that has been done In bringing the exposition to Its present status. Mr. ncnowater. In opening , paid a graceful tribute to St. Loute as a city of ir.agniflcent private residences end then took up the- subject of the ex position. Ho said the ontcrprlr > 9 Is designed to represent the resources of the great em pire of the west find he dcclared _ It would bo an anomaly If the great empire state of the west Is not present. SCOPEiOF THE EXPOSITION. Referring to thoscope of the exposition , Mr. Roseuate said ? , that at theWorld's fair the greatest attention had becm paid to foreign exhibits , but In the Trausmlsslsslppl and International Expedition tbo resources of the great states of the west and of the whole United Stales nould be given preced ence. He reviewed eomo ot the difficulties which had bcscl the pathway of the promoters meters of the exposition during Ita early stages , but said the affair has now attained a solid condition and Is broadening moro and moro every day. He informed the visitors that five foreign nations have taken official action toward being represented and others are moro than likely to follow. Evi dences of Interest In the enterprise arc dally being received fiom the most remote cor ners of the earth , and many of the eastern states In this country are manifesting In creasing Interest In the matter of official representation. Mr. Rcsewcter detailed tha steps that h.\vc been taken In each of the eastern states and those that are under con sideration. He also referred to tiie Interest which Is being takcti In the matter by the federal government , and spoke of the ad vertisement the exposition Is receiving from the Issue of special postage stamps , the ap propriation for an Indian exhibit and other governmental agencies , which had never be fore been exerted In the Interest of any exposition. In closing , ho expressed the hope that the pecple of Missouri will corao to the exposition in full force. M. V. Carroll of Jefferson City , secretary of the Missouri commission and state labor commissioner , was called for and ho expressed himself very briefly. "Wo are glad to bo hero , " said i.Mr. Carroll. "I know that every member of our delegation will my that what he has seen baa exceeded his expectations. I can say for myself that I have read your literature sril 4iavo seen the pictures you have been sending out , but I had no adequate conception of itho magnitude of the enter prise. We are proud of Missouri and wint to make you pcopld proud of It. I am Eutlsfled that the Iruprceslcns wo will take home will redounl to the credit of our state enl be a credit to your expedition. Wo can raise the funds to erect a building nnd Install an ex hibit that will throw nil others In the shade. I do not want to dlacouraga any other state lei the tfforts It may be making to got up an exhibit , but Missouri will ocllpso them all. " Following the remarks of Secretary Car roll , Chairman Sampson of the Missouri com mission said ho was pleased to heir Hio ncc- letary express hlirsclf eo emphatically , as the bulk of the work must fall upon him and his 'Inclination ' would go a long way to ward deciding upm the nature of tlio ex hibit and of Missouri's participation. Mr. Sampson also declared his firm conviction that If the members of the legislature had understood the situation as tlio visitors now understood It there would have been a lib eral appropriation. Ho also stated that Gov ernor Stvp.icns la meet enthusiastic In tuo wcrlc nnd Is doing everything In his power to nuke the e/dJpslUon a succrcs , In clos ing Mr. Sampsp'i expressed tlio appreciation of the visitors ( for Iho courtesies which had been extended ,10 * , thcra ! and eald they would return hoimi not only wltn a. high apprecia tion of the city and of the project In haul , but with the highest , respect for Hio energy and ability of thcqo having It In charge. it was ovldunl before going j'li to the grounds that mary of the visitors had reached a point'ot'jCjithuslasm regarding the exposition and oniO ) of the most ' members of tlu-ylelu'isntlon express d lu tiio strongest termq , thu doterinlnallon nf the " Missouri peoplp , , fp "Jiavo an exhibit at thp exposition whlw wjjj make the other s atoi look well to ( 'tlejr ( l'-u eU.

"Our state Is destined to bo the orchard of tbo world , " uald Mr. At wood , with tlit > conviction of a man who knows. "Wo have 20,000,000 fruit trees In the southern part of our state which will all bo In full bearing within the next ten yearn , and with these we will bo the great fruit producing section In the world. Wo have now Immense numbers of fruit trees of oil varieties and produce Immense quan tities of fruits every year. We don't have to Irrigate and have never had a crop failure. Wo are coming to thu exposition within a display which will be a superior ono and wo are determined not to bo out done In that line by any other section of the country. " C. M.

Iiltistrles of MUsourlnilI Lu rearf | : iUfaI h un < - - tensive exhibit Hint will show to the world the Immense resources of the state In that line. "Wo rely largely on our lend and zinc mines , " n.ild Mr. Manker , "and we will have a line lot of samples nf these ores , the finished products anJ other tilings In that line , but we will Also have a fine showing of the other minerals of our state , Including silicates , pyrites , etc. " M. V. Carroll , secretary of the state com mission , said the stale would furnish all the stone Unit Is required for Missouri's portion of the Arch of States. "We have all kinds of s > tone nnd can furnish It at nny time nnd In any quanllty. Wo have plenty of red sandstone or nny other variety Ihnt may bo wanted. As soon as we find out how much your nrchllccts want wo will send It right along. "I want te- say right hero , " said Mr. Car roll , omo'iatlMlly ' , "that your commissioner. R. W. Richardson , las slirply set our slate afire. We were rather apathetic about the exposition nnd were not Inclined to do much towards making nn exhibit , but ho cime down there and stirred our people up and now they are up In arms and wo will have ono of tlio finest exhibits that the state has ever made anywtiere , and that la sayIng - Ing a great , deal. PRIVATE SUBSCRIPTIONS COME. "We have no legislative appropriation for an exhibit , " continued Mr. Carroll , "but we will liavo n fund mined by orlvate subscrip tions that will give plenty of money for all expenses that are necessary. Our people nro not niggardly and there Is no fear but that the money will bo forthcoming. An appeal has Just been sent out all over the state , asking the people to contribute , and the re turns will socci commence coming In. Our commission Is well organized nnd wo liavo some of the strongest men In the state as members. The people In charge of the ex- iposltlon may depend on Missouri making n showing that will be a credit to the exposi tion. tion.C. C. D. Parker of Kansas City , chairman of the. committee on manufactures of the Com mercial club , to which committee the mat ter of erecting a Kansas City building at the exposition hns besn. referred , sail tlio building project Is still In stntu quo , await ing the decision ot the state commission. "U'o are going to co-operate In cvry way with the state commission , " e-ild Mr. Parker , "and are in full accord with Omaha on th's exposition project. Wo have not fully de termined whether wo will erect a separate building or not. Wo are prepared to do so If It appears to Ihc exposition matifiso.ront and to our people that that Is the most doslrnblo thing to do. Whatever the out come may l > o In that little detail , the people of our city are with Omaha he-art and soul lu making this exposition a success In every respect and showing to the world the tremendous resources of the grent west. " C. C. Davidson of Eldorado Springs said the | iuuuu 01 iiis actnon are very eninuaiusuc about the exposition. "We want an 'El dorado day. ' " said he. "We think wo have the finest mineral springs in the world In our town , nnd If the exposition will give us a day wo will ship carloads of this water to the exposition and give everybody their fill of our specialty. Our town Is ready to make an appropriation to carry this scheme Into effect and the mayor authorized mo to make the arrangements If the exposition management sees fit to set aside a day for the purpose. If this Is done our people will como here In force and water will be given to everybody. " PLANS FOR THE EXHIBIT. After the festivities lu the dining room had been concluded the members of the Mis souri commission assembled In the ofllcc of the Ncbiaska Exposition commission and held a business meeting which was a decid edly animated proceeding. The Mlssourlans were full of enthusiasm nnd they dispatched the business before them with a celerity that accomplished results lu a very short time. The general subject of ways and means formed the matter for discussion In the be- glnlng , but it was soon decided that nn effort should at once be made to raise at least $50,000 with which to cover the expenses of state participation. It was the consensus of opinion that tills amount could bo raised without any great dlfllculty by pri vate contributions among the people of the state. This part of the business disposed of , It was next decided that a state building should be erected on the exposition grounds and It was decided that $10,000 should be expended for this purpose , or as much more as maj" BO necessary to erect a creiuiuuie structure. In addition to this building It was determined that. If It Is deemed ad visable to do so , a separate building shall be erected In which each county will bo given space for a county collective exhibit , the building to bo constructed of Missouri plno and to bo of size necessary to fulfill Its purpose. The question of having separate buildings erected by the principal cities In the state was taken up aud discussed nnd It was the sentiment of the meeting that this should not bo done , but that all of the cities should co-opcrato with the state commission lu a state building aud exhibit. Resolutions were adopted extending the thanks of the visitors to the exposition man agement for the generous treatment extended nnd to the railroads for courtesies extended lu transportation and entertainment. A special committee of seven commission ers was appointed to confer with the exposi tion management regarding arrangements for space and other jletHlls connected with state participation , 'ims niceiing was HLMU at once and an understanding arrived at in short order. Terms that were perfectly satis factory to both sides were agreed on and the visitors promised to co-operate In every way with the exposition management In mak ing the affair a complete success. The St. Louis members of the party left for 'their homes at 7:30 : p. in. and the other members of the party took the 10 o'clock train. Before going to the train State Labor Com missioner M. V.

H exceeds our expectations In every way and wo are greatly pleased at < the result of this visit. There Is no question whatever about the ability of our commission to raise the $50,000 wo have sot out to raise.
