TOURNEY OF FIRE FIGHTERS
Test of Men and Methods of Handling Ap
GREAT FEATURE OF THE EXPOSITION
Chief Ilcilell nnilMnjor Clnrknon

irotlicr tlic Klremcu of
Major T , S. Clarkaon , the assistant to the
president , is engaged la arranging plans for
the national tournament of firemen which is
jiropoaed by President Wood of the National
Firemen's association , who was In Omaha a
ehort tlmo ago ta confer v.'ltb. the exposition
officials regarding the matter. As soon an a
definite plan U outlined it will bo laid before
the executive committee for ratification.
Major Clarkson hat , been in consultation
iwltb ChleHledell of the Omaha PIre de
partment regarding arrangements for the
tournament and says that the chief has
entered most heartily into the spirit of the
thing. It Is conceded that such a tournament
would attract thousands of people from all
octluia of the country. The lost national
.tournament was hold in Chicago In 1S78 ,
and there were 15,000 firemen ! n the parade.
It Is estimated that a tournament in Omaha
( would attract fully 25,000 firemen and three
or four times that many visitors. . The last
twenty years has ecen many changes la
the methods of fighting fires , and a great
increase In the number of firemen employed.
The tournament proposed Includes the vol
unteers , as well aa the paid fire departments ,
and It Is conceded that there has been a
great Increase In the number of both clotses
since the taut tournament.
Ono of the meat essential features of a fire
men's tournament , and , In fact , the principal
object of the tournament , Is tests of skill In
lighting fires. The plan which has been con
templated by Major Clarkson and Chief
lledell , although not fully matured , Includes
the erection of a temporary structure several
utories in height , in some open space which
Is to bo fired and the several companies con
testing for supremacy given an opportunity
to show their speed and activity. This would
glvo opportunity for the use of pompier
ladders , and all the most modern inventions
for fire fighting. Purses of sufficient size to
induce hot competition will bo offered In
the several classes.
Those who have kept In touch .with the
matter in its preliminary stages feel cer
tain that arrangements will soon bo made
that will bo entirely satisfactory to all con
cerned and that the largest and most suc-
dessrul tournament of firemen ever held In
thla country will eventuate In Omaha during
the coining summer ,

ST. LOUIS , March 4. ( Special. ) A meetIng -
Ing of the executive committee of the Omalm
Exposition commission will probably bo
called within the next ten days , for the
purpose of awarding a contract for the erec
tion of a state building on the exposition
grounds. The call will be Issued by the
chairman , Colonel John O'Day of Spring
field and meantime the aspiring architects
will complete their plans and submit the
same to the committee.
The necessary ground pace for the Mis
souri exhibit has already been secured by
the president of the commission , Clark H.
Sampson , and -the locality Is said to bo a
desirable ODD. > It la the intention of the
commission to not expend over $10,000 on a
building as it is doomed this sum will be
amply sufficient for a temporary structure.
The main work now ahead of the com
mission is to secure the necessary money
to make the Missouri exhibit a complete
success. At the recent meeting in Kansas
City some $20.000 was reported as having
been collected , and nearly all of this came
from the cities. The country Is yet to hear
from and letters of inquiry have been sent
out with a vlow of learning just how much
each county can bo depended upon to furnish
In ready cash.
The commission estimates that it will re
quire not less than $50.000 to make anything
like such an exhibit as the state should
have , and it Is thought that a considerably
larger sum could be expended to gooi ad
vantage. Most of the city subscriptions
have been collected and by the time the
next meeting of the executive committee
Is held It U thought they will all be In the
hands of the treasurer. It Is not known at
this tlmo how much money has been sub
scribed in the country. ' Many of the county
courts have made appropriations , but in
moat caes small sums were voted.
Anticipating that there will be difficulties
in ( he road of raising sufficient funds In the
usual way , the committee has resorted to
another 111611104 for obtaining small contri
butions. A handsome exposition button , or
, badge , as some call it , has been secured. H
Is duly inscribed as a Missouri Exposition
button and has the seal of the state stamped
In the center. Persons desiring to possess
ono of these souvenirs can do so by en
closing their address and $1 to the treasurer ,
P. C. Marshall cashier of the St. Louts
Continental Dank. All money arising from
the sale of these buttons will bo turned Into
the general exposition funds. The commit
tee expects that a largo number of theni
will be disposed of during the next few
days. Letters have 'been sent out by the
secretary railing attention to the souvenirs.
Assurances are coming In to the execu
tive committee from all parts of the state
from individuals and corporations stating
that they will need space for their exhibits
and when all these are added to the ex
hibit of the state now being provided for
It ls believed that Missouri will easily walk
away with first premium.

The Colorado Exposition commission Is
meeting with great encouragement in its
efforts to have a fine exhibit of the many
resources of the state. At a meeting hold la
the governor's oHlco Wednesday night , re
ports were received which Indicate that ex
position matters arc In a very good condition
and a large and fine exhibit is assured. State
M'aing ' Coramlfslonor Leo reported that
$3,000 will be required for a creditable min
ing exhibit and he said a good share of this
had already been secured and pledges were
given to guarantee the balance. Mrs. M. A.
Shute , secretary of the State Board of Horticulture
ticulture , who is In charge of the horticul
ture exhibit , repotted that the friendly ri
valry between the various acctlons of the
etato made it certain that plenty of money
will bo available for a fine exhibit of fruit
extending through the entire exposition.
Colonel R. E. Goodell , chairman of the de
partment of coal , Iron and oil , presented
assurances from leading people connected
with these Industries of a fine exhibit In all
these lines. The members of the commission
were greatly pleased at the outlook end no
stone , will bo left unturned to make the
Colorado exhibit all that could bo desired.
The lUate has been aaalgnsd the most prom
inent position In the Mines building and the
raining exhibit will bo made especially flno
en that account.
The Denver commission also held a meet-
Ins Wednesday night and it was found that
there will bo no difficulty whatever In rais
ing sufficient funds for the erection of the
proposed Denver building.

Political secrets particularly ono or two
regarding the nonpartisan manner In which
the board of Fire and Police Commissioners
mnko appointments leaked out at a Joint
meeting of the populist city and county cen
tral committees last night as a result of the
fact that the two bodies got their wires
badly crossed. It was a meeting called for
the purpcso of forcing Governor Holcomb to
appoint another straight out-and-out mlddln-
of-lhe-the-road populist ono to bo selected
by the straight out-and-out mlddle-of-tho
road populists of the city to succeed Com
missioner Herdman , whose term expires thh
spring. In the course of the meeting , how
ever-It devoleped that this Is not the only
pleco of pie in sight , but that Commissioner
Peabody Is holding up a dozen or more
other cbolco bites in the shape of positions
as special policemen on the city police force.
The meeting assumed the usual populist
tlngo from the outset , a fight being precipi
tated at the first Jump. Some of those pres
ent thought the meeting was nothing more
than the regular gathering of the Douglas
County People's Independent Party club.
Members of the city central committee were
out in force and knew , of course , what wad
coming up. Among the regular club mem
bers , however , ere several of the county
central commltteo and these did not know
what the real purpose of the meeting was.
These emelled a mouse right away
and came to the conclusion that the city
central commltteo intended to gobble up the
spoil without letting their county brethren
know anything about it. They were not mol-
Ifled by the statement of Chairman Ihm of
the city ccncral committee that ho had sent
invitations to all the county central commit
tee to bo present and that they must have
The suspcion grew largo In the minds of
the county committee that it was really In
tended to leave them out In the cold and a
fight was the result. Some of the city cen
tral committee did not see how their county
brothers ought to have anything to say about
a fire and police appointment , anyway , since
It concerned the city alone. The discussion
lasted for over an hour and finally harmony
was restored by the passage of a motion thnt
both committees should work together to
have the right populist put into Ilordman's
shoca. Mlko O'ConncIl of the county cen
tral committee was elected chairman of the
meeting and Mark Hanson , secretary of the
city cencral committee , secretary.
CAT LET OUT.
It was In the course of the discussion on
this matter that a llttlo cat was let out of
the bag and some Inkling was given of the
matter In which the Flro and Police board
Is preparing to appoint forty special police
men that It Is proposed to add to the de
partment during the exposition. Mike O'Cjii
neil was oaylng that ho was ono of the
county central commltteo who did not know
what the mooting was for and ho continued :
"I thought this was to be a meeting of
the club and that wo were to consider the
mutter that we had before us last meeting.
That was the drawing up of a list from
which Dr. Peabody was to select his com
plement of the rpcctol pollcointm ttat are
to bo appointed by the board. Ho told us
that he did not care to pick out the pop
