full length of the room and a shorter table ,
at which worn seated the otllcers of the visit
ing delegation and of the exposition manage
ment and Mayor Moorcs. extending across
the room at right angles to the llrst table.
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. "

Wattles called on F. 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
"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
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. WV hare cjmo to accept your
kindly proffer of partnership In this great

We shall tellittlem that U Is worthy of their
beat efforts and worthy of all they call do to

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 :
"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.
Catch the Inspiration of the rising tide of
prosperity In this new year. Como up to
this congress of states In great companies
with your caravans laden with frankln-
ceuso and myrrh and aloes , the products
of your fields , your mines and your com
merce. 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.
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

tion of the city and of the project In haul ,
but with the highest , respect for Hio energy

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

within a display which will be a superior
ono and wo are determined not to bo out

M. V. Carroll , secretary of the state com

cime down there and stirred our people up
and now they are up In arms and wo will

has ever made anywtiere , and that la sayIng -

"We have no legislative appropriation for
an exhibit , " continued Mr. Carroll , "but we
will liavo n fund mined by orlvate subscrip

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

"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

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

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

were full of enthusiasm nnd they dispatched
the business before them with a celerity
that accomplished results lu a very short
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
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

The Good Work Being Done for the Sick Menus of

It goes without saying that physlclnna ns

Under the equitable system of Dr. Shep-
nrd no patient Is permitted to pay nhovc < i

cludes the cnrefuf dlinjituvtls nnd careful
treatment of nil rhronlo diseases rheuma

Of courna Dr. Shepnrd has this advan

speech In which ho said bo was unable to

Introduction of a gold titandard. Ono thing
was clear , ho continued , a great advance
had been made In the direction contem
plated by ( ho authors of tbo policy of 1893 ,
namely , to make the gold standard possible.
Many obscure points had been determined by
actual experience. The disasters of 1S97 had
boon followed by a bountiful hat vest and
the renewal of the truilu discussions of last
autumn had prepared the public and official
opinion in 'England ' to tbo possible necessity
of the gold ntandard , which might Involve
the actual diversion for Indian purposuH of
a certain amount of gold from the general
available stock. The speaker uald nlho that
