Bohemians Consider Radical Changes in
Their Athletic Begime. i
ADDING AMERICAN OUTDOOR SPORTS
ConcrsMon to the Srir Youth of Their

What will probably prove to be the most
Important convention of the Telocvlcna
Jadnota sokol ever held In the history of this
Bohemian-American society was formally
commenced In Metz hall yesterday morning.
Radical , far reaching chants In the athletic
system that is now the foundation stone ot
the society are b lng considered and will
probably bo adopted. The society was
orglnally intended to meet the needs and
the desires of the young athlete ot pure
Bohemian birth , it is to be remodelled tc
satisfy the young Amerlcan-Bohemlar
The necessity of some such change hai :
become more prominent since the , meetln ?
of the body four years ago , for the nationa
society holds a convention only once It
four years. It was felt it that time whet
the convention was held In Chicago durinj
the World s fair , but the delegates to tha
session did not stem to care to take upoi
themselves the responsibility of makln ;
the changes Since then , however , the mat
ter has become more and more pertlnen
and the first Important step will be taken a
the present meeting
The convention was called to order thl ;
morning at 0 o clock. According to thi
usual custom of the body thu first buslnes
consisted of Ihe election of a staff o
officers for the convention. The sokol doe
not permit Its regular officers to preside
possibly In order that their acts may h
moro freely invesllgaled and comment
upon. A set of officers who serve only dur
Ing the convention areselected. . The fol
lowing were elected. President , Josepl
Vokal of New York , vice president , B
Hurt of Chicago , secretary , Dr J. R
Jaclnsky of Crete , assistant secretary , F
Holub of Chicago
The business of the morning session wa
largely of a routine character. Probably al
the matters which will come up for con
slderatlon were introduced , but all of thes
were referred to committees for consldera
tlon. As soon as these committees repor
the convention will get down to the wor !
set before It. The committees selected eras

As has already been said , one of th
most Important matters that is coming up I
a proposed change in the athletic systen
At present the sokol employs the systei
that Is and has been in vogue In Boheml :
1 alnly confined to work upon apparatu
o ihe gymnasium It has been partlall
changed already by ihe addition of th
broad Jump , the high jump and pole vaull
ing , but it is propose ! to stl
further enlarge it by the addition of otht
American field sports. Thus It Is propose
to have the shot put , the hammer throv
sprints , basket ball , base ball and otht
sports that are American or Engllsh-Amer
can. This change Is directly the result i
the American love for outdoor sports. Th
sentiment has been Imbibed by the youn
Bohemian-American and the change
made to attract him to the sokol. At tt
same time , the gymnasium of the society wl
also Include those sports ot the Bohemia
gymnasium which are now Included In tt
system , for the sokol members right
maintain that there Is no system which be
ter brings about the desired physical de\e
opmenL It is simply to meet the new cond
tlon that the additions are made to recoi
nlze that the scions of Bohemian natlvi
In this country are Americans and are ii
culcated with the American love of ouldoi
Another Important mailer lhat is to be d
cided upon is regarding the establishment
_ aschool , for Instructors. At present there a
'no Instructors to be secured In this countr
or rather , there are but a few. Only a fe
year * ago the sokol had to secure an 1 :
structor from the old country It paid hi
a. big salary , and after an expense of tho' '
sands ot dollars Incurred In having hi
travel from society to society througho
the country and instruct the members , t
results were very unsatisfactory Cons
quently It is the intention to establish som
where a school where instructors may '
trained. In this the sokol Is but follow li
In the steps of the German turners.
There are a variety of other matters
less Importance to be considered. When t
society last met In Chicago , for instanc
a lot of laws and regulations were adopt
which were ot no use and are now of t
dead letter character It Is proposed to e
punge them from the rules of the soclel
The matter of publishing the organ of t
society semi-monthly Instead of monthly
also to be settled.
An afternoon meeting of the conventli
was slated , but It was postponed becau
. . . none of the committees were ready to r
port. An adjournment was taken earl
therefore , until evening , but when the bo
met again at 8 o'clock the committees h
not finished their work and another adjour
ment was taken. The body will be co
vened to order at S o'clock this morale
It was scheduled that an adjournment si
die should be taken today but tt is almc
certain that the business of the body ca
not be cleared away In time.
The committees hare decided upon a pr
posed change In the athletic system a
upon the establishment of a normal schc
of Instructors. Reports to this effect w
be presented to the meeting this mornic

day also He hoped the dream of absolutely
painless dentistry micht some day be rea

Two viaduct ordinances were introduced
at lost night's meeting of the city council ,
read the second time and referred to the
| committee on street Improvements and vla-
"ucls. There were one by Councilman
lount for a viaduct on Twenty-fourth street
iear Hickory over the railroad tracks there
nd another by Councilman Stuht for ono
n Sixteenth street , between Leavenworth
, nd Pierce. In the language ot these ordi
nances the necessity for them is declared to
xist and City Engineer Rosewater Is au-
horized to prepare pi ins and specifications
The railroad ticket brokers' ordinance was
epealed This was done on the recom
mendation of the fire , water and police com
mittee. An ordinance was passed for the
epaving of Thirty-second avenue , between
) adge and Davenport.
Communications were received from the
mayor recommending that something be
lone In the way of cleaning streets. The
first was a veto of the resolution directing
he Board of Public Works to expend J200
n cutting the weeds and 1500 la street
repairs. The reason given by the mayor
or his veto was that the amounts were too
small ind would not begin to do the work
required. He advised fully Jl.OOO for weed
uttlng alone. The council unanimously sus
tained the veto. The next was an initiatory
recommendation from the major In the
hape of a message calling attention to the
filthy" condition of the streets and the
absolule necessity for cleaning them , partic
ularly those running northward In the di
rection of the exposition. The exposition ,
he said , had two months yet to run and 11
something Is not soon done visitors will go
away from the city with a bad Impression
of the streets of Omaha and much of the
value of Ihe exposlllon would be lost. On
motion of Councilman Bechel this matter
was referred to the finance committee
Later In the evening a resolution from
Councilman Burltley was adopted authorizing
the Board of Public Works to spend Jl.OOO
n cleaning up the paved streets by day's

ing was done in the matter of street re

questing the property owners along the
north side of Ohio street , from Seventeenth
to Twentieth streets , to trim their trees so

lights was referred to Ihe committee on
public property and buildings President
Bingham was ot the opinion that the prop
erty owners generally ought to see to It that
their trees are properly trimmed and lhat
ihe street lights are not obscured. It was
hinted that if they do not the city mlcht
go ahead and do the trimming itself at the
expense of the property owners.
A reference to the Judiciary committee
was the disposition made ot the Initiative
and referendum petition. City Clerk Hlgby
reported that It had been filed too late for
him to count the 3,104 names said to be
attached to the document.
The city clerk was authorized to purchase
the necessary supplies for the registralior
of the voters for this year A claim of a
registrar , Butts , foi 1S97 was recommended
to be disallowed Because Butts was ap
pointed four days after the day for which

lines leading to and from the grounds were
kept busy for an hour after the conclusion
of the shows earning home the spectators.
There were several unusual features about
the lv o shows yesterday The first was the
attendance of a number of Nebraska
pioneers , who were the guests of Colonel
Cody They came from many different
points In the state , and all of them were
enthusiastic In their appreciation of the
show. The cheering from the reserved seats
was led by John A Crelghton and Colonil
James E. North , and was taken up bv other
early settlers of this locality Another in
teresting feature was the presence * of a
couple of hundred Indiana from the Con
gress of Indian Nations at the Transinls-
slsslppl Exposition These occupied spe
cial seats In the grand stand , and appeared
to take 13 much Interest in the acts of their
fellow redskins as did any of the others
present After the conclusion of the after
noon entertainment the exposition Indians
visited their cousins who are attached to
the show , and although most of them spoke
different dialects of the Indian language
they managed to make their greetings
understood , and the half hour In which they
fraternized was a show In Itself , though not
down on the regular program.
The show Itself Is the best ever given
by Colonel Cody or any one else In the same
line of business , in this city To the pro
gram have been added at least four attrac
tive features and former numbers that
were of modloc-e quality have been dropped
The various acts follow each other In such
quick succession that there Is no oppor
tunity for ennut. There are twenty-four
numbers on he program and they are given
in commendable style and with an exhil
arating amount of dash.
The spirit of the times Is adequately re
flected In the presentation of several mili
tary numbers. A detachment of United
States artillery giv-ps a most interesting
drill The artillerjmen are veterans from
Captain Thorpe's battery D , Fifth regiment.
United States artillery. They were well
received , as were also a troop of United
States cavalry from the celebrated Sixth
regiment. The riders gave a marvelous ex
hibition of horsemanship , military exercises
and athletic sports as practiced at Fort
Myer , Va. , under Colonel Sumner The cav
alrymen woie the campaign uniforms
adopted by the army for use on the frontier
and rode western range broncho horses.
A strictly up-to-date feature of this year's
show , which also received hearty cheering
clear around the big enclosure , -vas in the
presentation of a troop of Cubans , said to
be veterans of the Cuban campaigns against
the Spanish forces in the liberated island
They formed a color guard and were nattily
attired In uniforms of canvas of a light
shade of brown Each one of them was
formally presented to the big audience and
after his introduction galloped around the
ring. It was announced that each of the
Cubans had been wounded In the cause of
Cuba Libre several times , but the riding of
none of them resembled that of hospital
Win-re the Indian * Figure.
A representation of the battle of Little
Big Horn , in Montana , June 25 , 18T6 , is also
given in a splendid manner , and adds an
other rood feature to this year's program
Preceding the battle , better known as Ous
ter's last rally , are shown a great num
ber of Indians In war paint , first In their
camp , later In a wild war dance in front
of their camp. A bevy of rancheras give
an exhibition of daring horse riding They
are introduced as genuine frontier girls ,
and they certainly ride as though they
spent more than one or three seasons In
riding the wildest bronchos of the plains.
The remainder of the program la a pleasIng -
Ing repetition of what has been seen here
before with Buffalo Bill. The program is
opened by the playing of "Star Spangled
Bancer" by Bill Sweeney's Cowboy band.
Then comes the grand review of the rough
riders from the plains of all nations It is
led by Colonel Cody himself , and is one of
the most brilliant features of the show
There are the Indians , cowboys , Mexicans ,
Cossacks. Gauchos , Arabs , scouts , guides ,
frontier girls and detachments of equipped
soldiers representing tha armies of the
United States , Great Britain , Germany , Rus
sia and the color guard of the Cubans
Snapshooting and other fine feats of
marksmanship are displayed by Buffalo Bill ,
Annie OaKley and Jobany Baker , the latter
another native of Nebraska who has
achieved a great reputation by his dexterity
In the use of firearms. The cowboys amuse
the crowd by riding bucking ponies , pick
ing up objects from the ground while run
ning at full speed and lassoins wild horses.
But the best exhibition of work with the
lasso is given by a group of Mexicans. The
Cossacks do some hazardous riding. an <
the Arabians perform feats of strength and
agility There are the familiar attacks on
the Deadwood stage coach , the praino emi
grant train crossing the plains , the attack
on the settlers' cabin , the horse-back races
among the- Indiana and other good riders ,
i the buffalo hunt as it used to be and a
very pretty mil'tary drill by a detachment
from the Irish lancers and the Garde

ANOTHER VERY WARM DAY
Old Sol Trlen for Bin Record , hut
Fnlli n Little Shy of the > < -u-
The sun shone yesterday with a good will ,
only exceeded on three days this summer
From a moderate temperature of 74 degrees
at 5 a. m It burned its way up the ther
mometer past S7 at 10 a. m. , 94 at noon ,
to a top notch of M ) degres at 3 p. m. The
thermometers on the streets , absorbing the
radiation of the pavements , mounted as
high as 105 degrees. After 3 o'clock there
was a slight relief and the mercury was
slowly forced back down the tube The
only period this summer which surpassed
the record made yesterday was on August
20 , 21 and 22 , when the thermometer regls- i
tered 100 each day. Previous to those dates
no day made even an. ambitious attempt to
equal yesterday , the maximum registration
before August 20 being 93 degrees.
There was a brisk breeze nearly all day ,
ranging from fifteen to twentywo miles
an hour , from the south and southeast. It
was in no sense a cool breeze and the mem
ber ot the family who Insisted usually that
It was better to open doors and windows on
a hot day in the interest of coolness was
inclined to sldo with those who advocated
closing sash and curtains It was far from
being what the weather bureau technically
terms a "hot wind , " however , as that is
reserved for one so low In humidity that it
absorbs all the moisture in vegetable life.
The breeze yesterday was well enough sup
plied with moisture of Its own to escape
this charge , as It possessed 35 per cent ot
the amount which marks total saturation.
There was not sufficient moisture in the
air , however , to make complete the discom
fort of those whose duties led them about
the streets That point was indicated by
a local weather official as one which con
tributed largely to the enjoyment of Omaha
summers , for in localities where the humid
ity reaches CO or 60 per cent , with the
thermometer at the mark attained yester
day , the result can only be numerous heat
prostrations. In Omaha the low humidity
allows the radiation of heat and the evap
oration of the excess moisture from the body
and accordingly reported heat prostrations
In this vicinity are of very rare occurrence.
It was suggested from Forecaster Welsh's
office about 9 o'clock last night that today
would be cooler.
