All the membem of the Illinois commla-
Blon who were In Omaha yesterday had seen
the exposition , with the exception of Ferd
inand W. Peck and H. Hall McCormlck of
Chicago and tbcso two men expressed great
surprise at Its size and beauty. As vlco
president of the Columbian exposition and
a member of the Illinois commission of the
Atlanta and Nashville expositions , Mr. Peck
has perhaps had more , experience with ex
positions than any man In America. Of the
Transmlsslsslppl he said : "When I stood In
the main court I Imagined I was In the
Court of Honor again. All that was different
was the Government building where the
Peristyle belonged. The effect la magnifi
cent and the buildings arc as beautiful as
those In.Chicago and arc far more nearly
completed than our buildings were this long
before the opening. Until I saw the build
ings and grounds I had no adequate con
ception of the grand scale the exposition
was being made on. I supposed It would bo
something llko the Atlanta or Nashville ex
positions and was amazed to see how much
larger It Is. "
In speaking of the Illnols commission Mr.
Peck said that all the members were de
lighted with the exposition and particularly
with the Illinois building and Its admirable
location. "Wo expect to do all In our power
to advertise tbo exposition 'and assist the
management , " said Mr. Peck.
A feature of the exposition which pleased
Mr. Peck particularly waa Its accessibility
to the main portion of the city , being not
more than fifteen minutes' ride from down
town. He also remarked about the com
pactness of the main buildings and the ease
with which they may be visited.
Mr. McCormick said of the Illinois build
ing : "I stood on the rear portico of the
building and Imagined I was looking out
over the Garden of Eden. The location of
the building U magnificent , overlooking as
It docs the river and surrounding country
on ono side and adjoining the Grand Plaza.
It was fortunate that members of the com
mission were on the ground early and se
lected such a desirable spot. "
The "Midway , " In Mr. Peck's opinion , will
1)0 a great drawing card and he says It Is the
first thing that Chicago pcoplo Inquire about.
Ho further says that ho thinks It Is unwise
to try to glvo any other name to the amuse
ment section than "Midway , ' 'because the
name has come to bo synonymous with what
people arc anxious to see in the amusement
line.Both Mr. Peck and Mr. McCormlck think
that the pictures of the exposition which
have been sent out arc entirely Inadequate
to show Its beauty and In fact do not think
any lithograph can do It Justice. Mr. Peck
says ( hat the Columbian management found
that photographs advertised the Chicago ex
position in a better manner than any other
kind of picture , and suggests that the Trans
mlsslsslppl directors have photographs of the
main buildings and grounds placed In prom
inent places In largo cities.
Select nn IllliioU Day *
The Illinois building was thoroughly In
spected and accepted from the contractor.
Arrangements were made for certain details
in the Interior furnishing of the building.
The members expressed themselves as
greatly pleased with the handsome appear
ance of the building.
After returning down town a conference
was held between the Illinois commissioners
and representatives of the exposition and
the date for "Illinois day" was decided upon ,
This was the first of the state days to be
definitely fixed , and June 21 was the date
selected. The visitors wcro enthusiastic
over the unquestioned success of the expo
sition and Insisted on a day for Illinois be
ing fixed early In the season. They solemnly
promised that on "Illinois day" every resi
dent of Illinois will be brought to Omaha
and the entire vicinity of Omab.a will be
colored a deep vermllllon hue. The com
missioners said that the Interest In the ex
position throughout Illinois Is nothing short
of tremendous and they predict with great
confidence that the crowds which will visit
Omaha on Illinois day will be Immense.

gers to the effect that the invitation to the
congress to hold a special session at Omaha
during the exposition met with favorable re
sponse and a successful meeting of the con

ment of Booth * for the nliplnr.
Active work has been commenced on the

out gives assurance that In setting and ex
tent , at least , the Nebraska exhibit will be
a memorable one. The exhibit will occupy ,
all the north and east sides of the allcry
of the big Manufactures building and the
cast half of the south gallery. The gallery
Is thirty feet In width all around and this
cpaco will bo divided In such a way that a
long series of rooms will extend through
the middle of the portion to be occupied by
this exhibit. This long room will bo eigh
teen feet In width and an aisle six feet In
width will extend along the sides of the
room. The long space thus enclosed will be
subdivided Into rooms sixteen feet In width
by short walls extending out from either
side , these short walls forming a passage
way ten feet In width entirely through the
The walls forming this series of
small rooms will be thirteen
feet In height and on these will be displayed
the cardboards to which will , be attached
the specimens of school work. The wall
next to the gallery railing will bo elabo
rately decorated with flags and bunting
above a point seven feet from the floor. The
section of the exhibit booth directly op
posite the main entrance to the building
will bo in tbo form of a series of arches
rising above the height of the other portions
of the wall ° , ml on these arches will bo thn
name of the exhibit.
The central portion of the east gallery will
be devoted to the exhibit to bo made by the
University of Nebraska and this Is marked

"Veteran Soldiers' Week" will bo one of
the epochs In connection with the exposi
tion. A Joint meeting of committees ap
pointed by the exposition and the state de
partment of the Grand Army of the Repub
lic has decided that a week shall bo set
aside when the old soldiers of both armies
shall bo given the right of way. The com
mittees which have had this matter In
iharco are these : For the Grand Army of
he Republic. B. R. Ball , S. K. Spaldlng and
John H. Butler ; for the exposition , Captain
II. E. Palmer , C. E. Adams of Superior and
Major T. S. Clarkson.
The exact date for this gathering of the
heroes of the late unpleasantness has not
been determined. It having been decided to
fix a date when President McKlnley will be
In Omaha. When this date Is learned the
whole of that week will bo designated as
Old Soldiers' week and It is expected that
thousands of the veterans will come to
Omaha to visit the exposition and parti
cipate In the campfires and gatherings char
acteristic of the veterans. Reports have al
ready been received from distant points o (
whole families who Intend to drive to Omaha

tion In order to save railroad fare and hotel
The only free accommodations which will
be provided In connection with the coming
of the old soldiers will bo a piece of ground
suitable for camping , where those who drive
to town can pitch their tents and enjoy
themselves to their hearts' content.
Another Hand Would Come.
George C. Sellner of Omaha , special com
missioner for the exposition to Honolulu ,
writes to the Department of Exhibits that
a flno opportunity offers for an engagement
for the royal band of the Island. Ho saye
this band Is supported by the government
and Is under the charge of a former band
master of the Austrian army. Mr. Sellner
speaks In terms of high praise for the
efficiency of the band , the extent of Its re
pertoire and the excellence of its playing.
In addition to playing brass instruments'the
members also play orchestral instruments
with equal facility and the leader has also
drilled them as a male chorus. They sing
the native songs of the island and are aug
mented by two girls with excellent
voices. Mr. Sellner says this aggregation of
talent has been given authority by the gov
ernment to make a trip of one month to
Omaha and a proposition is made to spend
the full month at the exposition , playing
every day as much as may be desired , the
only consideration being the traveling exist
ence of the members of the organization and
their subsistence while away from home ,
This proposition will bo laid before tbo exec
AiTfirillna : More ConcemlonM.
Up to this tlmo considerable alarm has
been felt In certain quarters that one feature
of the exposition was being neglected. No
arrangements bad been made for a beauty
show and It was the consensus of opinion
that the affair could not be a success with
this feature omitted. The breach has been
filled , however , and a concession has been
lot for this attraction , which will occupy a
prominent place on the Midway. The con
cession was let yesterday afternoon to the
Columbian Amusement company , composed
of A. C. Redlck and Seth Drake of Omaha ,
They promise to produce a beauty show
which will eclipse anything of the kind evei
The executive committee also let a con
cession to B. B. Manchester for four auto
matic machines , consisting of a fire engine ,
steamship , locomotive and electric light
A concession was also let to A , Santa
Maria & Co. , to sell cameos , cameo shells ,

says that there la no doubt that his com
