'Arbor day Is the anniversary of the be
ginning of active work on the exposition
grounds. Just one year ago the cornerstone
of the Arch of States wao laid with Imposing
ceremonies and the work of construction was
formally Inaugurated. .At that tlmo no work
had been done on the ground with the excep
tion of putting up the high fence which now
eurrounds the entire grounds. A portion of
the fence was completed at that time , but
the only other work which had been ac
complished up to that time was on .paper. .
The grounds had been taken possession of
Just ono month before and In the meantime
the general plan of operations had been de
termined and the preliminary arrangements

fraught with such great Importance to the
people of the entire west. The cornerstone
wa laid with due signs and ceremonies by
the grand lodge of Frecmatons of Nebraska
and the great exposition was formally
When this event transpired the Kountze
tracS. now the.main court , was a flat piece
of ground , surrounded by a wire fence.
Nothing was grown on It except the wild
grass and weeds. The bluff ; tract was u bare
jilcco of ground , on which a "good crdp of corn'
( : ad been raised the previous year. The
north tract was another flat piece of ground
devoted partly to cultivation. About one-
thlr.1 of It was Included In the fence of the
old fair grounds , and on this were a number
of old buildings , which had long outlived
IN THE VAN OF ARCHITECTURE.
The year which has passed slneo the
mighty throne wended Its way along Twentieth
tieth street'to the point destined to be Ihc
main entrance to the grounds , has been a
year of great change. The three pieces of
land constituting the exposition grounds
1mvo been transformed as though by magic
and a more beautiful spot It would be dlfll-
cult to find.
Thj Kountze tract Is now known as the
main court , and tero 1s centered the archi
tectural beauty of the exposition. Every ef
fect la produced by strict ndhcrcnco to ths
dictates cf the strictly cl.es cal. Every but dInt -
Int ; In this portion of the grounds Is a mag-
nlllccnt Illustration of classical architecture ,
moil Hied by a touch of the Renaissance sufll-
clcnt to produce a result magnificent in
elaborate decoration. Grouped about a canal
extending the full length of the tract and
connected with covered colonnades giving
the effect of false perspective , an archi
tectural effect Is attained , which has never
been accomplished at any former exposition
and places the Transmlsslsslppl and Inter-
notional Exposition at the front In the line
of Bupcrloilty In architecture. Only the
finishing touches are necessary to make this
portion of the grounds complete.
The treatment of the bluff tract has been
In etronc contrast'to thaj of the Kountze
traci. and the erstwhile 'cornfield has been
transformed Into the most beautiful parks
within the limits of Omaha. Huge
trees have reared their lofty heads where
formerly the tassels of the waving corn
nodded In the trcoio and wln'lag walks cov
ered with gravel have displaced tie straight
an 1 narrow furrows made by the cultivator
Numerous state buildings to bo used as
headquarters for the visitors from neighborIng -
Ing states have been erected or arc In course
nf construction , and the beautiful Horticul
ture building stands In the mUdlo of the
tract ns the center of attraction. The up
per portion of the tract Is assigned to the
amusement portion of the exposition and an
army of workmen Is engaged In pushing
the construction of the numerous buildings
which will bo peopled by the natives oi
other climes , who will furnish amusement
for these attending the exposition.
ALOI.MCJ THE NORTH TRAM.
The treatment of the north tract , from so
architectural standpoint , Is radically different
from that of the other two tracts , and here ,
too , great changes have been wrought In
thn appeararce of the grounds. This per
tion of the grounds Is devoted to the display
of agriculture and kindred Industries and
to traospDrtatlon. It Is very appropriate ,
therefore , that the buildings should con
form , architecturally , to the usca for which :
they "are designed. The style of architec
ture prevailing In the mountain districts
of Switzerland has been adopited for these
buildings , ani rn armi ; of wcrkmcn Is en
gaged In rearl'jg the structures which will
houic the many exhibits which will be dis
played here. The huge .building devoted sto
agricultural Implements and transportation
appliances will occupy the center of this part
of the ground , and It Is far advance * . ! . The
Dairy end Apiary buildings ate also In tiew
advanced stage. A good portion of this
tract will bo devoted to Irrigation exhibits (
for which no buildings art. . required , and for
this reason the west portion of this tract ,
has undergone but little change. The south
part of thla tract Is devoted to a section thof
the Midway , and the erection of the mtny .
"villages" and pavilions makes this part of -
the grounds ono of the busiest scenes In
connection with the entire exposition. Nu
merous substantial > bulldlags have taken the
place of the ramshackle structures which
formerly occupied the grounds and the old >
r C9 track has disappeared forever.

The county commissioners are considering
the question of Illuminating and dccorattag
the court house during the exposition. Whl'e
they have not adopted any plan , they have
several that nro partially formtitateJ ,
During the Ak-Sar-Den festivities ot last
year and the year before , the commissioners
decorated the court house and did some
thing In the way of Illuminating , but they
were never entirely satisfied with the effect
produced , although they felt upon both oc
casions that the county building was the
moU attractive In the city and that It was
the most admlreJ , not only by strangers , but
Supcrlntende.lt Houck of the court house
has been requested to furnish and submit
to the I3oard of County Commissioners a
plan for decorating and Illuminating. In
speaking of the matter , ho said ; "The
county building occupying a prominent po
sition upoi ono of the main ctreets ot the
city can bo made most attractive If money
Is appropriated to pay for doing the work.
Last year wo had some special electrical
Illuminations In the way of a flag , a shield
and a star. They wcro very pretty , but I
don't think that they quite filled the bill.
If the county commissioners dccUo to Il
luminate this year and If they leave the
preparation of the designs to me , I think I
can work out something that will be at
tractive nnd ot the same time not to very
expensive. The court house Is well adapted
for making a magnificent display In an elec
trical way. For Instance , take the north
side of the building. Wo could work a
farm or hunting scene In under the coping
and have a fine effect. It could be a paint
Ing If necessary. This would show off to
goad advantage during the daytime and If
Illuminated , It would bo very attractive at
night. On the east and west sides of the
building , up tindcc the battlement , I think
that we should have some figures. They
are not expensive and If properly placed ,
they would add much to the general ap-
pcaranco of tho/bulldlng. /
"Last year wo placed a torch In the hand
of the flguro of Justice that surmounta the
dome. That was satisfactory and could not
be Improved upon , but the dressing of this
flguro could be materially Improved upon.
Instead of having rows of Incandescent
llghte running down the folds of her drem
I think that It would be a good plan to
have powerful lights placed at each ot the
four comers of ( do pedestals upon which
she stands. This would not only brln ; out
the figure , but at the same time it would
light up the upper portion ot the building.
' 'The flag decoration of last year wao not
up to my Idea , but It was the best that
could bo done under the circumstances.
Those streamers extending from the dome to
the four corners of the building gave the
structure the appearance of a back yard on
wash day when ( bo colored clothes were
out on the line to dry. Stored away In
the building we have the flago and pennants
of all the civilized nations and if these
were placed upon standards anj grouped or
arranged about the roof of the building I
think that wo could produce an effect of
whlrh wo would bo proud. "
Whatever the commissioners do In the way
of Illuminating and decorating will be done
very soon , as they have all expressed tde
opinion that if the court house la to be
made attractive It should bo done thai It
may put Ita best foot to the front on the
opening day of the exposition. "

This building la conceded to bo the hand
somest on the grounds and no palna seem
to have been stared to make It magnificent
In every detail. H Is larger In cvcvy way
than any of the other beautiful structures In
thla portion of the ground. Occupying the
place of honor at the weft end of the main
court ; facing the bread Mirror , the lagoon
anil the gland court formed by the inuln
buildings of the exposition , the Government
building Is the most conspicuous object on
the grounds. The architecture is Italian
Renaissance In style and of the Corinthian
ordci. ' . The embellishment Is masalvo and
elaborate , every detail being carefully worked
out. From the bread steps leading to the
Interior to the crown surmounting the coloo-
Ml flguro of "Liberty Enlightening , the
World , " which overlooks the city from Its
lofty pinnacle 1TG feet above the ground , the
work Is as carefully done as though the
building was Intended to stand for hundreds
of years Instead of being merely a temporary
covering for the exhibits of the government.
The building Is covered with staff , no
plaster being used , even on the plain
sutfacea. On jho contrary the latter arc cov
ered with great slaba of the .white , niarblc-
llko staff , carefully fitted together and
"pointed" and the ornamental portions are of
the same rr.ate'-lal. the entire , building hav
ing the appearance of a marble palace.
Messrs. Alexander & Son , the staff con
tractors , are putting the finishing touches
on the bulldltvs by Installing the huge groupa
of t'tatuary whltti
surmount the square pa
vilions at either side of the main entrance.
The contract for the building requires It to
bo completed by May 1 , but It will have been
.finished and tunned over to the government
fully a week before that time.
The building Is already the center of ad
miration , all visitors to the grounds remarkIng -
Ing upon Its great beauty and substantial
appearance , and the dazzling whiteness of ho
waHs. Attached of the various govern
mental1 departments connected with the ex
hibits to be made In the building , declare
most positively that at no previous exposi
tion has the government erected a build
ing so artistic and beautiful.

Our advertisement of yesterday mndo it appear that
the prices on the special suits now on sale were $9.00
and $12.00 a suit. This was a mistake. The prices
are nine dollars for the Backs and eleven dollars for
the frocks. The frook suits are diflorout from the
sacks and better quality that's why they are two dollars
lars higher. There are three different lots and thrcu
different patterns and only 300 suits in all. If you
are fortunate enough to got one of these special suits
you will have cause to thank The Nebraska for saving
you a good dollars and for
many giving you as good a
suit as you usually buy for fifteen dollars or more ?
Remember that the suits are made from a fine quality
of pure worsted woven by the Globe woolen Mills and
are made up by the same firm who make our very finest
suits. They are new , styligh elegant patterns in
1 fancy pin check and invisible ovorplaid effects and your
' friends can't tell them from a good many twenty dollar
suits that are being sold around town. You will find
them on sale all day today.
