Trot. Wlllard Klmball , the newly clcctei
nuslcal director of the exposition , arrived
In the city yesterday and presented to Chair
man Llmlsey an outline of Ills plan for musl (
nt the exposition. This plan was laid bv
fore the executive committee by Mr. Llnd'
eey end was approved , thus putting tli <
flnlflhlnB touch to the engagement of Prof
The musical director was seen nt the Mil
Janl hotel after the decision of the execu
tlvo commlttco and was asked rcgardlnf
tils plans and Intentions so far as the ex
position muslo Is concerned.
, "Tho plan I submitted to the executive com.
tnltlee , " said Prof. Klmball , "was elmplj
on outline | ilan. It Is Impassible to fix the
exact nature of the music to bo given and
the number of performances until somethlnp
Ooflnlto Is fixed as to the amount of money
that Is to bo available for thai purpose. 1
have a definite plan outlined In my mind
however , and shall endeavor to carry It ou !
ns far as I am given the opportunity.
"Tho first necessity In an enterprise o !
this kind Is an organlratlon of musicians , or
rather , two organizations. Ono of these If
a military band of the very first quality and
the other an orchestra of tfoo highest grade ,
The hand would servo to glvo open air con
certs of a high order , < lo escort duty foi
ImporUcit personages , and cater to the tastes
which profc'r that class of music. The or-
chcatra must bo composed of musicians who
arc fully competent to carry their parts
after ono rehearsal for any kind of worli
that may bo presented. With finch an or
ganization the exposition can wy to theblR
choral organizations In ttio different cities :
Wo have an orchestra canal to Theodore
Thomas' , and wo Invlto you to come here
and give some of the standard oratorios with
your own conductor. ' I also hope we will
bo ahlo to say to them that wo will supply
the finest soloists obtainable to sing with
"I also propose to appoint In each of the
western states persons who will work up
nn Interest among the local organizations
nnd have them come to Omaha and glvo
high class music with their own conductors.
It Is not my purpose to attempt to act as
conductor for the many performances which
I hopu wo nmy boable - to glvo , but I shall
devote the greatest part of my time anil
energies to arranging for the rendition ol
music of the very highest grade that shall
bo a credit to' the exposition and to the
musical culture of the west. The west Is
fully capable of It , and the exposition will
offer the finest , opfortunlty for us to show
the world what wo can do. My Interest Is
In tlio west , atfrt I aUi anxious to do every
thing that lies in my power to overcome
the faleo Impreeslca that prevails In some
quarters that we know nothing of music out
here. Wo can draw from Minneapolis , Chicago
cage , Kansas City , Denver and Salt Lake
and many other western cities which have
excellent chorat organizations , and can glvo
a series of musical events which have neve ?
been equaled In this country. These or
ganizations all want to come here , and all
tbattls necessary Is for us to prepare the way
for them. Mr. Ulndsey has turned over to
rae bushels of letters relating to these matters -
tors , and I have o doubt whatever that It
wo can assure 'these people wo will furnish
o. good orahestra and the other things that
ore neccesary wo can make a success of that
feature of the exposition.
"It will bo necessary to have a chorus ol
about 300 voices In Omaha. I believe thk
can bo organized by uniting the severa
organizations now In existence In this cltj
and In Council Bluffs. Some of the smallci
towns nearby may send recruJls to thli
chorus. I don't want any drones In thl ;
organization , but 300 people who can ant
will sins. With sucb an' organization us i
basis , together with the orchestra I have
referred to , wo can rest assured of credlta
Wo performances. This will give Omali :
musicians the opportunity to do good work
I hope to 'be ' able to unite them and secun
their co-operation In perfecting this chora
organization , so that on the opening day-o :
the exposition wo may glvo a grand cantata
and perhaps render some of the well knowr
works , such as 'The Messiah , ' 'Elijah' 01
others. '
"It has been charged that I am not ar
Omaha man , " continued Prof. Klmball , "alu
that -would work to build up the muslca
Interests of Lincoln and not those of Omaha
So far aa the first statement la concerned ll
this is to bo an Omaha exposition the charge
might have some force , but as I take It thl ;
Is to bo an Interstate and International ex
position , and such a narrow accusatiot
should never bo heard of. So far as bulldlnt
up my school In Lincoln Is concerned , that Is
not necessary. I propose to work for the
success of the exposition and for that alone
That will not prevent any musician ir
Omaha from making all ho can out of It.
"I shall take up at once the work of or
ganizing the Omaha chorus , and shall devote
myself to that end as vigorously as posstbli
as soon as the movement can bo started. 1
shall bo In Omaha frequently and shall oper
an olllco In the Paxton block as soon as I car
arrange my private affairs to do so. The en
gaging or organizing of the band and or
chestra Is another matter which will occupj
my time. I do not bel'.evo It will bo neces
sary to bring organizations hero from the
outslJo. I feel quite sure there arc com
petent musicians right hero In Omaha tc
make up the greater part of these organiza
tions. There may ho some particular instru
ments which cannot ho found here , 'but ' 1
have no douobt Omaha and 'Council Bluffs
will bo able to supply the greater part ol
what will ho required. "

The first social event In connection with
the Ice Carnival occurred yesterday after
noon , and It was such an auspicious success
that It augured well for the other event *
concomitant with tbo crowning of Queet
Polaris and the honoring of the maids o ;
her retlnuo. The occasion was the reception
tendered to Miss Mildred Stephcnson , who
was selected as queen for the carnival after
a most exciting voting contest , and to her
malda of honor , who word chosen from var
ious towns and hamlets In the vicinity of
Omaha by similar expressions of public
opinion ,
The reception was held In the parlors of
the Mlllard hotel , and between the hours ol
2 and 5 o'clock over 250 Omaha citizens ,
largely of the feminine gender , passed
through the parlors to pledge Ihelr loyalty
to the queen and to pay their rwpccts to the
visiting maids of honor. iTIio parlors on
the second floor of the hostlery wcro beauti
fully decorated with stately palms and
pretty cut flowers , and crowded with youth
and'beauty ' presented an Interesting picture.
In a nook of the hallway concealed behind
an Improvised hedge of palms , an orchestra
discoursed sweet music during the afternoon
hours. The tea parlors were also protllly
Illuminated and decorated , and In there the
the gucsto were served with refreshments.
Early In the afternoon , soon after Miss
Stephcnson and her maids had assembled In
the parlors , his honor , the worthy mayor of
the clly , arrived to present to the queen the
key of the city's gates , and with It extend
to her and her satellites the freedom ot Ihe
city. Mayor Frank E. Moores never looked
moro happy , never appeared more genial
nor never upoko moro wittily. In a timely
lltllo speech ho presented a largo glided key
to Miss Stophoiisoii.
In the course of his remarks he said : "It
Is to be deeply regretted , even deplored , that
the weather gods have so seriously Interfered
with our plans for the Ice Carnival. The
present state of weather Is not allogether
proplllous for Ice palaces or for toboggan
clubs , but we shall strive to entertain you ,
the untoward weather lo Ihe contrary nol-
wllhslandlnE. I assure you that neither the
fair queen nor any of her charming maids
of honor need fear lhal the abundance ot
: nud which we now seem to have with us will
bo allowed to even soil the soles of their
calnty boots , for the young men of Omaha
ire such a gallant race thai Ihey will gladly
lay down Ihelr cloaks lo protect you In cross
ing all puddles. Omaha ! o glad to see such a
representative gathering of the daughters of
this state and ot our neighboring stale , and
\vo extend to you all a cordial welcome.
Queen Polaris has the key of Ihe clly and you
are now In possession of all that Is good III
Ihe Gate City of the- West and that means
everything , for we do not tolerate anything
that la not good about hero. The grounds
of the Tronsmisslsslppi Exposition , which
you will visit during your stay here , will give
you some slight idea of .tho beauty and
? randetir of the show that Is to come. From
: he dlmerolons of the partially constructed
buildings , you can form your ownoplnlors
of the large scale upon which this exposi
tion Is behag built. And wo know that you
will return to Omaha during the coming sum.
mor to atteml Ihe exposlllon , bringing with
you your sweethearts , your friends and your
relative ? . But not to longer prolong this
brief , but Important exercise , I , Frank E.
Moorrs , mayor of the city of Omaha and late
chairman of the defunct Board of Fire and
Police commissioners , do now hereby deliver
to Mildred Stephenson , sunnamed Iho Queen
Polaris , Ihe key of Iho city of Omaha and
trust to her and her court the future welfare
of this place. "
Mayor Moores' remarks throughout were
In his usual happy vein and were well re
ceived. Following his little address of wel
come the guests began to pass through the
parlor , meeting first OMlss Stephenson and
then the maids of honor. The reception was
In charge of Mr. Thomas Swobo and reflected
considerable crellt upon him. lAraong the
gucsls were noticed a large number of young
oclety women of the clly and a few of their
beaux , who assisted In the introductions.
Miss Slephenson looked very sweel In a
iandsomo gown of white silk , with a baby
jluo satin train and a beautiful cape of
swansdown. Many of the maids of honor
were also atllred In light colored dresses ,
though the majorlly wore afternoon gowns of
dark colors. The list of visiting maids of
Honor who were present at the recepllon

Ceremony Proc-coils In Spite of IJI -
iKfrn.'iililc Wrnthcr.
The court of Queen Polaris bid defiance
to the weather god last night. In the face
of the disagreeable conJltlons Iho comely
Viclorla was duly crowned nnd scaled upon
her regal throne In the presence of her flul-
tcrlng maids of honor and a goodly number
of her subjects. And with this royal cere
mony carnival week was fairly commenced.
Hardly moro unreasonable If not unsea
sonable weather could bo Imagined than
narked the opening of tbo Ice carnival. The
high temperature of the entire month has
tnado It Impossible to erect the Ice palace
which was contemplated and It has "been "
moreover doing Its best to spol the Ice In
the exposition lagoon despite the efforts of
the carnival management to preserve It.
These obstacles , together with the nasty
slush under/noting of. the streets which dis
inclines worthy citizens , even though they
are faithful subjects , to go without doors ,
wcro not auspicious of success ot the royal
But despite the disagreeable weather
there was a very good attendance at the
crowning of the queen. In fact , the attend
ance was too largo , for It was feared that
their weight would cause the Ice of tbo la
goon to On thU account the regal
: eremony was shortened considerably , but
the royal emblem was duly placed upon the
brow of the queen.
The ceremony was performed ) at the west
ern end of the lagoon In Iho bright glare of
clectrc ( , calcium and colored lights , The
queen was seated upon a gaily adorned
throne with runners. She was attired In a
brilliant robe , glittering like gold and
Tlmmcd with ermine. Miss Stophcnuoii
formed a very charming plclure on h'er royal
( , cat. About her flitted her maids of honor
and the courtiers of her retinue while tbo
ceremony of crowning her was being per
After the ceremony the subjects of the
queen disported themselvcu for several houra

Tlie Biggest
That Has Ever Taken
Place in Omaha
This Morning.
Nine big cases of Pants requiring two
big teams to haul them from the
depot. If you owned a mill and had
bought the wool before the tariff law went
into effect , if you were a manufacturer of Pants and
had all the facilities to make them at the lowest possible
cost in the face of all this we claim we will sell you Pants
for less money than the mill owner could produce the
cloth and for less money than the labor would cost the
pants manufacturer , let alone cost of material. Nobody
looses on these Pants but the man who sold them.
The mill owner was paid the price for his cloth , union labor
was paid the union scale of wages for making them. The
firm who made them needed money. We bought them at a
price and are going to sell them at such a price
that the hoys who now run the streets will relate it
to their Children ,
We Offer in this Sale
2.500 pairs of all wool elegant made Pants that never
sold for less than $2.50 pair , for $1.25 per pair. r
1,500 pairs of Pants that are worth $2.75 and $3.00 q
pair , for $1,75.
1,000 pairs of Pants , worth $3.00 to $4,00 per pair , will
be sold for $1.95.
Look at 16th street window , Merchants and peddlers
are barred on this sale *
Will cost you but $20 during our 20 per cent Reduc
tion Sale , Is that worth saving ? Your suit will re
ceive the same careful workmanship the same excel
lent trimming and fitting as though you had paid the
regular price , $25,00.
Don't fall into the error of thinking that this 20 per cent
eduction is on a certain line of woolens only stickers , per
haps. On the contrary it applies to every yard of cloth in
our store.
You can have a suit made to your order for as little a *
Si 5 this week , from $20 to $22 woolens.
You can order a pair of'$6 , $6.50 and $7 Trousers for $5 ,
Better sse the lines.
