After nearly half a hundred states , soci
eties and municipalities had In turn contrib
uted life and feature to the exposition the
Bohemians of the transmlsslss' . > pl country
came yesterday and eclipsed all previous rec
ords. Bohemian day was the most brilliant
Riiccess of all , and the biggest week that the
exposition has yet enjoyed was fittingly
closed by the great celebration that made It
While there was an average crowd on the
grounds In the morning It did not compare
with that ot the afternoon and evening. A
large proportion of the people remained
donwtown to see the parade , and It was late
in the forenoon when the real rush of visit
ors begun. Tbe parade arrived at the grounds
shortly after noon , and at the same time the
street railway was bringing all the people
it could haul. In halt an hour the crowd was
apparently doubled and fully 5,000 people
came through the various gates during that
time. The parade was admitted at the
wagon gate on Sherman avenue , and passed
down the West Midway to Twentieth street
end thence to the Administration Arch ,
where the floats and carriages were turned
back and out of the grounds , and their oc
cupants alighted and went on to the Audito
rium , where the exercises of the day oc
curred. Both sides of the Midway were
packed with spectators , and the Cosmopol
itan band caught the crowd with Its In-
Eplrlng rendition ot "Semper Fldells" march.
Each ot the magnificent floats was heartily
cheered , and the various uniformed societies
that marched In the pageant were also given
an enthusiastic greeting. General Manager
Clarkcon took personal charge of the parade
after it reached the grounds , and both he
and the other exposition officials who were
present took occasion to congratulate the
Bohemian committee on Its success In bring
ing In the biggest party and the most bril
liant pageant that had yet visited the
Lunch Ilefore Lltcnlnir.
The Interval before the exercises was de
voted to an attentive discussion of the nu
merous lunch baske'- > that camp with the
crowd and for half a.i hour the main court
was transformed Into a huge basket picnic.
The exercises at the Auditorium were on a
scale that was commensurate with the gen
eral enthusiasm ot the day. The big build
ing was packed from the pipe organ to the
doors , and In spite ot the heat resultant from L '
so much crowding and the rather long program -
gram , It remained crowded to the end. Then
the people swarmed to the Plara , where they
gave equally hearty approval to a short
caltsthenlc drill by the Bohemian turner so
cieties of Omaha , St. Louis and Cedar Rap-
Ids. By this time the lunch baskets were
again In demand , and almost without ex
ception the visitors remained through the
evenlf. They were delighted with the
beautiful Illuminations that most of them
eaw for the first time , and the fireworks dis
play that was pulled off at 9 o'clock for their
especial benefit was also liberally patronized.
Ninety per cent of the visiting Bohemians
will stay In the city to the extreme limit of
their return tickets and see the numerous
features of the big show that they had no
opportunity to Inspect yesterday.
The school children's excursion from
Auburn , Weeping Water and Intermediate
points added about 400 youngsters to the
crowd. The children arrived on the regu
lar Missouri Pacific train shortly before 10
o'clock and were received at the north gate
by Secretary Ford and other representatives
ot the Woman's Board of Managers. They
had been provided with tickets on the train
by a representative of the Admissions de
partment and were promptly marshaled
through the gates and dismissed In groups
to enjoy their holiday until 9:30 : last night ,
when they were taken home on a special
With a return to the 25-cent Sunday ad
mission the prospect for a good crowd on the
grounds today is encouraging. The attend
ance on previous Sundays has been a con
vincing argument that the people do not
propose to pay halt n dollar to see half a
show , Last Sunday the total attendance was
0,124 , and on the preceding Sunday It ag
gregated only 7,204. These small figures
handicapped the attendance record materi
ally on the first day of the week , but the '
management is convinced that today will .
record a different story. I

Aside from the magnificent parade of
Bohemian societies and floats tbo formal ex-
trclscs of the afternoon constituted the
roost notable feature of the celebration.
These were attended by one of the biggest
crowds that has yet been packed Into the
Auditorium and both the addresses of the
various speakers and the musical features
ot the program were rewarded with vigor
ous expressions of appreciation. Both the
English and Bohemian languages w'ero
used , but through all the program there was
a patriotic motive that was eloquently ex
pressed and greeted with an enthusiasm '
that left no doubt of the sentiments of the '
It required some time to get the big
crowd fairly distributed through the build
ing. When this was accomplished every
seat was occupied and the standing room
vas filled to the doors. The McCook
band played a stirring march , followed by
a fantasle that elicited an encore and then
Anton Kment of this city called the meetIng -
Ing to order with a short address In Bo
hemian , and Introduced Mayor Moores ,
who received an enthusiastic greeting.
Mayor Moores expressed the pleasure it
afforded htm to welcome to Omaha such a
representative gathering ot Bohemian-
American citizens. All American cit
izen * are foreigners. he said , If
they trace their ancestry back far
enough , and the Bohemians are loyal
citizens of their adopted country. They
fcar becn accustomed to work la their n-
tlvc country and thcro are no Idlers among
them. In this country where no aristocracy
ot birth Is recognized the foreign born citi
zen has an equal opportunity to rite to
wealth and distinction. The mayor referred
to the large proportion of Bohemians In
Nebraska and declared that on that nc-
count it Is eminently fitting that this cele
bration should bo heldjn this city. He
suggested that one ofi the greatest news
papers In the west , The Omaha Bee , Is
edited by a man who was born In Bohemia ,
and who is recognized as one of the
brainiest and most enterprising citizens ot
Nebraska. In conclusion he presented the
visitors with the golden keys of the'city ,
which were appropriately received by Mr.
Kment on behalf of the Bohemian societies.
On llchnlf of the Exposition.
Edward Rosewater welcomed the visitors
In behalf ot the exposition. After the np-
plauso that followed his Introduction had
subsided Mr. Rosewater said that the vast
audience before him reminded him forcibly
of some of the scenes that had passed before
him since he came to Omaha thirty-five
years ago. He was then the first Bohemian
to settle In Omaha , but now the Bohemian
.population of the city Is greater than the
total population was at that time. He briefly
referred to the value of expositions as a
means of developing the Industries and re
sources ct the people and emphasized the
success of this exposition In the face of the
discouraging conditions against which It had
contended. He expressed his pride that this
celebration is the greatest event of the kind
that has yet occurred on the grounds. "I am
proud of my native country , " declared the
speaker , "and I was never prouder of It
than I am when I see this magnificent audlp
cnce today. "
A very enjoyable Interlude In the speaking
was contributed by the Svor Lyra chorus
of Omaha , which sang a Bohemian song
very acceptably and answered an encore
with "America. "
Prof. B. Slnek of the Iowa State uni
versity responded very ably to the greet
ings that had Just been extended. Ho com
mented on the fact that the population of
this country presents a curious mixture of
racial elements. The result has been the
formation of a grand national character that
has combined the best qualities of the na
tions from which it has drawn Its Inspira
tion. All Americans , regardless of birth , are
one in their loyalty to the flag ot their
adopted country. They retain a tender recol
lection of their native land and he declared
that it was with the greatest gratification
that he had Just heard one of the most
prominent men in Nebraska declare that he
was proud that his cradle had rested on
Continuing , Prof. Slmek referred to the
early history of Bohemia to show that it
was In that oppressed county that the first
lesson of liberty had been learned , and he
declared that It would yet take Its proper
place among the nations of the world.
One Country , One Flair.
The Bohemians In this country are Ameri
can citizens In spirit and In fact , but their
loyalty to this country docs not forbid
them to cherish the sentiments Inspired by
their recollections of the history of their
native land. These tendencies are not .dan
gerous , but are matters of sentiment that
do not refer to government. If the recent
talk of differences between this country
and Austria had..matei . lallzed li : fact the
Bohemian citizens of" America would have
been the first to enlist to give Austria a
This sentiment was received with tre
mendous applause , which was repeated when
the speaker alluded in patriotic ter.ms to
the victories of the Spanish war. He pro
tested against any entanglement with a
European power. It Is pleasant to think
that England has been friendly to us In
this struggle , but Russia was also kind to
| us during the civil war and France had
supported us In our struggle for independ-
ence. ' The Bohemians do not desire to
build up a Bohemia In this country , but
neither did they wish to build up a Ger
many , an Ireland or an England. This
must be all America , and to that end none
of Its citizens would contribute their ener-
gles more liberally than the Bohemians.
Mrs. Joseph Humpal-Zeman of Chicago ,
editress of the Bohemian Journal , delivered
a very interesting address in Bohemian ,
which was liberally punctuated by applause.
The band played a descriptive selection that
was vigorously applauded and this was fol
lowed by another song In Bohemian by the
chorus. An encore was answered with "The
Star Spangled Banner , " which again aroused
the patriotic spirit of the crowd and Chair
man Kment read telegrams expressing the
felicitations of Sokol Cech ot Cleveland and
the Old Bohemian Pilgrims of Chicago.
The concluding address was delivered by
Hon. Cenck Duras of Wilbur , Neb. , who
expressed In Bohemian sentiments very slra
liar to those which Prof , Sinek had so elo
qucntly voiced in English. Mr. Duras al
luded to the history of his people as that
oC a race that had ever been struggling for
liberty. In the Institutions ot this country
they found their Ideal of national existence
and they would adways be found among
their most loyal and devoted supporters.

Major Wheeler of Buffalo , N. Y. , the
secretary of the New York state commission ,
in speaking of the exposition and its pros-
pcru , sa > s "The Peace Jubilee ought to
bring a great crowd to Omaha. Eminent
representatives of the country will be here ,

only eastern state that has a building upon

the one that we hod at the World's fair

to many urgent requests , to show our love

( Copyright , 1S93 , by Associated Press. )
BERLIN , Aug. 27. The German press
continues to discuss the peace conditions
from various viewpoints , a majority of the
papers according to the United States high
praise for the moderation the American gov
ernment has displayed. Most ot them seem
to expect that difficulties will arise over
the ultimate disposition and control of the
Philippines , but as a rule the arguments
advanced are repetitions and threadbare.
The Koelnlche Zcllung's editorial may be
worth quoting , as there is the best reason
for believing that It was Inspired. It says :
"Before a definite peace Is concluded con
siderable time must elapse. Meanwhile the
International situation In the Philippines
and the far cast may have changed ma
terially. It Is not likely that Spain and the
United States will agree to a definite settle
ment of the Philippines question without
taking the advice of the powers Interested
particularly Russia and France. "
The foreign office maintains absolute reti
cence as to the present attitude of the gov
ernment on the subject.
Week's Event * in Politic * .
The most Important events In the week's
politics have been the national convention
at Crefeld , Rhenish Prussia , and the atti
tude ; adopted by the socialist party toward
the coming Diet elections. The Crefeld
convention for the first time took a dis
tinctively friendly tone toward the govern
Bishop Schmltz of Cologne eloquently ex
pressed strictly loyal sentiment. A tele
gram eent to Emperor William assuring him
of the loyalty of 7,000 delegates of the Ger
man Catholics assembled , and his reply to
It , were the notable features of the oc
casion. Another noticeable departure was a
resolution adopted by the convention to es
tablish Catholic peasant societies every
where in Germany. This was a strategic
more designed to compete with the peraaut
federation of Bavaria. It WHB also signifi
cant that the death of Prince Bismarck ,
the author of the Kulturkampf , Instead of
being used as a basis for hostile comment ,
drew out a few semi-laudatory remarks , one
speaker contending that If Bismarck were
alive and chancellor he would have signed ,
ere now , a bill to recall the Jesuits.
The various socialist local election com
mittees have decided upon their course of
action with regard tothe Diet election. In
Berlin an overwhelming majority has re
solved not to participate , as under the three-
class , election system the socialists have no
chance of electing their candidates.
On the other hand Breslau. Erfurt , Frank
furt , Lebus , Schleuslngen , Blelsfeld , Elber-
feld ( , Elnbeck , Brandenburg and other towns
have j decided to run their own candidates
or to support Krclstnnige candidates. In a
number of other districts the socialists have
concluded . to participate openly In the dec
tlons which , may mean the ruin of many
DlNiunrck' * Memoir.In Berlin.
Prince Bismarck's memoirs are now In
Berlin. Privy Councillor Kroner received a
special permit from the government and
brought the bulky manuscript which Is now
undergoing examination. There Is , however ,
a duplicate manuscript at Frlcdrlchsrufio ,
and as the text was dictated by Bismarck
personally , the family will not submit to any
considerable changes or abbreviations.
At WIlhelmBhohe on Wednesday conster
nation was caused by the discovery that one
of the chimneys was afire. The palace was
soon filled with smoke , and the members of
the imperial famUy were driven into the
open air. Emperor William , however ,
promptly took control of the firemen and the
llames were soon extinguished.
There Is unusual activity In the shipyards
at Kiel , Stettin , Elblng and Hamburg. The
government bos placed a number of orders
among them Including commissions for six
big torpedo boat destroyers of thirty-three
knots speed , to be ready for service early
next year. In addition are orders from Rus
sia , Spain , Brazil and the Argentine Rcpub
lie. It is a curious fact that the govern
ment has ordered the Vulcan ship building
works to pay a duty of 261,000 marks on the
floating dock built In England , although the
company cites against the ruling the pro
vision of the German tariff law. which de
clares that vessels are free ot duty.
It Is announced that the Navy depart
ment has secured "for Important technical
purposes" 1,500 photographs of the new
cruiser Hertna when trawling at a speed
of nineteen knots. The photographs were
taken In a few minutes by a new instru
ment , the cosmograpb.

and then proceed to Westport , Conn. , by
way of Baltimore and New York. When
ever the admiral appeared on the streets
during his stay here he has been the re

thusiastic cheers greeted him at every point.
The Porto Rlcan military commission , of

Schley will transfer his flag to the New-

Admiral Schley received a great
demonstration at the Navy depart

ment quite early and after a cell upon ActIng -
Ing Sccrctry Allen ho emerged from the
main door of the secretary's office. His
presence in the building had become known ,
however , and as soon as bo was seen cheers
rent the air from the clerks who bad as
sembled ( to catch a glimpse of the hero of
Santiago. The officers and clerks from the
Navy . , State and War departments crowded
the corridors leading up to the Navy depart
ment until it was impossible to pass through.
They crowded around the admiral , eagerly
reaching forward to shake his hands. The
women clerks were even more demonstrative
and the admiral was kissed by old and
young without discrimination. It was finally
necessary to form a line and pass the crowd
around through the large rooms of the sec
retary's office In order to give them a chance
to shake hands with the admiral. Many
prominent army officers took part in the
demonstration. The admiral finally escaped
Into Captain Crownlnsblcld's office.

American postal system Is soon to be Intro
duced here and house to house deliveries
and letter boxes are to be established. The
merchants are much pleased and the de
sire Is felt for the establishment of Amerl
can business systems. The modification ol
the administration of the provincial civil
governments by Generals Lawton and Wood
meets with the approbation of all intelligent
citizens and co-operation In the movement
Is Increasing. The schools will be opened
on September 1. English will be taught In
all the grades for the purpose of its Ameri
canizing effect. The employes of the civil
government are now paid with checks only ,
owing to scarcity of small change.
Impressive , services were held over the
remains of the Colombian consul , Senor
Braro , who died from fever. Many flags
were flying at halt mast.
The death rate among the citizens and
troops is increasing. The deaths In the
city dally number about eighty. The mor
tality among the soldiers Is small , how
ever. Patients who are convalescent after
an attack of dysentery and yellow fever
gain strength slowly , owing to the enervat
ing effect of the climate. Two hundred
Immunes are now In the hospital.
The steamer Panther left early this mornIng -
Ing with 108 sick soldiers of all regiments
and the Roumanla will leave tomorrow with
425 sick from all regiments , leaving 600
