BOHEMIAN TURNERS' ' PRIZES
Awards Made at a Social Session of Tel Jed
Sokol Last Night
EACH WINNER IS LOUDLY CHEERED
Onmhn Men Come Off with Great
Honor In the List of First * nnil
Second * .Vninrn of the
Last night was another evening of mirth
and merriment for the visiting and resi
dent Bohemians. The occasion was a ball
given by the local sokol to the visiting
members of the society. Its particular fea
ture occurred at 10 o'clock , when the names
of the winning teams and Individuals In
Sunday's tournament were announced. The
affair took place In Metz hall.
The ball was hailed aa an event In local
Bohemian society and the consequence was
that the visitors were given an opportunity
to cultivate the acquaintance of the local
belles of that nativity. For their entertain
ment an excellent dance program was of
fered , which did not conclude until a late.
or rather on early , hour. The success of
the affair was mainly due to the efforts of
the entertainment committee of the local
eokol , consisting of J. W. Flala. Joseph
Kalclk , and Fred Slama.
It was exactly at 10 o'clock when V. K.
Trlska. of St. Louis , chief of the western
division of the Telocvlcna Jednota sokol ,
summoned those present before the stage
nnd announced the findings of the judges.
As each name was called It was greeted
with cheers of congratulation. As Omaha
had the only team In the first division competitions
petitions It easily carried off the honors. In
the Individual contests In this division
Cedar Rapids had some contestants and
therefore the local men did not have a com
plete walkaway , although very nearly so.

ART AT THE EXPOSITION
It Is unfortunate that the Imposing sout

Itects In chief to be the main entrance Int
the exposition , should be the one wU
which the public Is least familiar. But th

As you approach the main entrance yc
must close your eyes to all the mean an
common looking , unpalnted pine buildlnf

of the arch like barnacles to a stately whli

proportions are happily determined and tl
dominant architectural lines are special ]
rommendable. Near the top Is a frieze formt

seventy fe t high , one discovers opposite ,
on the other side of the bridge , another
arch equally adequate ot the Administra
tion building. Unconsciously one feels how
nlculy theese two arches balance one an
other and at the same time accent the short
axis of the lagoon court by rising aa they
do high above the larger buildings.
The Administration Arch , with Its classic
arch below , a loggia above and high , steep-
pitched roof , with a lantern , and corner
plnaclcs. Is very striking and differentiates
itself from all the other buildings. Although
it. too. is designed in the renaissance style
and Is In harmony with Its neighbors. It U
different In character and recalle some cf
the mediaeval gateways to old French towns ,
or some of the towers which one occasionally
sees in northern France the tour d'horloge
at Rouen , for example. It ie the central
feature of the north side of the lagoon
court , and with Its green roof , ribbed with
gold , and pinnacles In green and gold It Is
very effective and adds a bit ot color to
the architectural * chenie. The vaulted cell-
Ing of the first story over the archway ,
pierced by the four principal arches , Is
brilliantly lighted at night by electric lights
which droop like luminous pistils In the
dainty flower-like rosettes.
I The statuary by Mr. Metier of New York
| Is eo distributed as to give effect to the
whole. The general character of the build
ing Is reflected back In each detail and In
these groups and figures the sculptor has
not tried to Intrude himself upon the pub
lic by making his work predominant , but
rather by the aid of the plastic art he
! participates In the architectural forms.
I There Is no other means of habituating the
i public to the beautiful and making It loved
' by them , but by presenting beautiful forms
as the expression of an Idea which arrests
their thoughts , engages and Interests them.
Architecture Is , as a certain poet has
said , "a book In stone ; " then the sculpture
must be the Illustrations. In this case the
embodiment of the administrative Idea id
carefully carried out. The lower part ol
the Administration Arch , with Its Roman
arch and Its simplicity , suggests strength
and power ; the upper part with the verj
pointed roof and pinnacles lifts the
thoughts above the petty cares which some
times creep In to disturb the peace of mind
ot an administrative board. The same Idea
Is again made visible In the central sculpt
ured group above the loggia where th
genius of administration Is calmly seated
waited upon by two youths.
The Administration Arch and the Arct
of States were designed by the architect !
In chief , Messrs. Walker and KImball o
Boston and Omaha , who with such excellen
taste designed the general scheme of thi
lagoon court and one of the most pleasln ;
of all the architectural features the colon'
nades. They gave to the architects thi
scale and general style ot all the build'
Ings , thus foreordaining the clearness am

knowing why. We cannot but regret tha

SPLEXDID CROWD LAST MGIIT.
Reduced Admlflnlon Bring * Oat the
Local People in Force.
The crowd on the grounds last night In
dicated that the drawing power of the 21
cent admission bos lost none of Its force.
This Is especially significant , as Monday
night Is usually one of the lightest of the
week. The crowd Is largely composed of
strangers , who are fatigued after their first
day on the grounds and do not linger
through the evening. This proved the case
last night and between 7 and S o'clock the
returning motor trains were filled with ex
position visitors , who preferred to rest
rather than spend the evening on the
grounds. But the reduced night admission
brought out such a local addition to the
crowd that their departure was not noticed
and U was one of the liveliest Monday
nights since the show opened. The concert
was played to a big c rowd and all the evenIng -
Ing the Midway received an exceptionally
liberal patronage. Late In the evening
President Wattles brought out a party ol
the visiting bankers , who were given a brlel
but satiatactory glimpse of the Midway.

concession , the features which will be showi

ot the people of the islands , as they ex
isted a century ago and also as they exls
at the present time. The Interior of thi
building will be decorated to conform wltl
that of a Hawaiian theater , with the stagi
settings peculiar to the territory. Then
will be the dances of the country , which wll
be tripped off to the music as it is playec

One of the features of the amusement sec

dance that the old king liked so well anc
which was so popular before the Island wai

sacred affair. When old King Kalakaua wa :
alive he was the owner of a splendid clul

would repair with his friends to drink gin

The people who will take part In thesi

Klrnlfy Endorien the Exnoxltlon.
Imre Klralfy , the great spectacular show
man , was In the city yesterady and spen
all of his time at the exposition , visiting th
1 main buildings and the Midway. That h
enjoyed the day goes without saying. Afte
making a tour of the grounds he said : "I
Is about as good a thing as I have ever see :
, and Is going to prove a great educator to th
people who come here. I have visited a ]
the expositions held during the past twent
years and regard this as one of the besl
; It seems to be perfect and complete In ever
. particular. The buildings are gems of arch
, Itectural construction and contain as fin
a class of exhibits as it would be posslbl
to find anywhere. In sending their exhibit
, the people seem to have displayed good Judg
ment and have sent only things intended t
i Interest the public. "
Regarding the Midway and Midway at
tractions , Mr. Klralfy said : "The time ha
, been reached when a Midway Is regarde <
. aa a part of an exposition and Is just a
; necessary as the big buildings and the ex
hlblts. At this exposition the Midway U a
good as any that I have ever seen. 0
i . course the attractions are not so numerou
1 as at the World's Fair , but on the whole the
' are better and are of a higher order. "
' At this time Mr. Klralfy Is thfe dlrecto
general of the London exposition. He wll
be In the city several days.

der.With her bleody knife In her hand the
Rhodes woman led her hnnband to their

EIGHTH WARD REPUBLICANS

Perhaps the biggest and certainly the
shortest political club meeting so far was
held last evening In Sander s hall , corner
of Twenty-fourth and Cuming strce's.
It was the Eighth Ward Republican club ,
met to reorganize for tha year. The only
thing done was the election of officers and
that did not take fifteen mlnutei altogether.
Vice President F. L. Smith called It to
gether as soon as about a hundred mem
bers had taken their seals. At once R. C.
Rowley and T. H. Leslie were placed in
nomination for president. Mr. Rowley was
elected by a majority of 20 ballots over his
opponent. The other officers chosen were
as follows , each by a unanimous vote : Sam
B. Leonard , first vice president : Fred L.
Smith , second vice president ; W. F. Cow-
ger , secretary , and C. J. Anderson , treas
urer. Owing to the heat an adjournment
was "mmediately taken.
Quite a number of candidates for the
lower house of the legislature live In this
ward nd It Is thought the club will en
deavor to avoid giving Its endorsement to
any one man. An effort will thus be made
to keep out of factional fights.
