The United States senators and congress *
men who were scheduled to assist In thi
celebration of Government day nt the expo'

home , for none of them outside ot the Ne

the exercises of the day possessed merelj
a local significance , the congressional partj
being limited to the two Nebraska senator :
and Congressman Mercer , who were ac <
compnnled by Rev. W. H. Mllburn , thi
blind chaplain of the senate , C. H. Blrtle
superintendent of public documents , nnd E
C. Snyder , private secretary to Scnatoi
But the presence of n few senators mon
or less seemed to have no Influence. 01
the peoples who wanted to see the exposltloi
and the crowd at least fulfilled all expecta
tlons. Only a small proportion of the vlsl
tors attended the exercises , but they pourei
through the buildings and over the ground
by thousands. Even a very limited minor
Ity was sufllclcnt to furnish a very com
pllmentary audience to speakers of thi
day , and when the ofllclal party arrlvci
at the Auditorium at II o'clock they founi

The exercises were preceded by a shor

the speeches were commendably brief , tlv
crowd was retained until the close. Th
guests of the day were given a flattcrini
reception , which seemed particularly dl
reeled to Dr. Mllburn , who was conducts
to the stage by hla daughter and Genera
Manager Clarkson. President Wattle
briefly announced the nature of the cele
hratlon nnd Introduced Senator Thurstoi
as chairman.
Senator Thurston was given a very com
pllmentary reception , after which he Intro
duccd Dr. Mllburn , who offered an earnes
Invoratlon. In this he rendered thanks fo
the victories that had attended the Amcrl
can arms and for the magnificent trlumpl
of man's labor which Is represented by thi
exposition. Ho thanked God that the clos
of the century Is glorified by such a apecta
clo and prayed that It might tend to develo ]
the sentiment of brotherhood throughou

HOAV Coiifcrena Helped.
In welcoming the congressional visitor
President Wattles referred particularly t
the assistance that had been rendered b :
the general government In building the ex
position. At that tlmo the panic of 159
had been followed by the drouth of 189
nnd 1S95 , nnd the conditions were 1 :
every way discouraging. The nsslstauc
of the government was essential to mak
the enterprise a success. The congresslono
representatives had saved the exposition b ;
their effective work nnd to them ! s duo n
small part of the credit for the magnlflcen
result obtained.
President Wattles also nmphaslznd th
value of the exhibits In the Govenimj-u
building , which had been of the greatest In
tcrest to thousands of visitors who woul
otherwise have never enjoyed an opportunlt
to see how the work of the various depart
ments of the government was carried on.
Senator Thurston expressed the scntlmen
of the committee nnd said that Its member
weio nmnzed at the wonderful spectacle tha
has been piesented to the people at this ex
position. The United States government ha
recognized but few expositions by the appro
prlatlou of money and the Installation of a
exhibit. It was with extreme hesitation ate
to the result that the task of securing gov
ernment recognition had been undertaker
The speaker paid a high compliment to Sen
ntor Allen and Congressman Mercer , when
he said , had been more than anyone els
responsible for the success that had bee
achieved. In making the appropriation th
government had recognized the resource
and the future of the mighty empire of th
west , nnd hero It hod made the best ex
hiblt that it bad ever made at any exposl
Senator Thurston emphasized the servlc
that had been done by the government I
bringing together the Indian encampment
This , he said , Is n spectacle thai the worl
never saw before , nnd Is not likely to se
aaln. He expressed his gratification tha
the exposition Is a financial success an
predicted that the closing weeks woul
bring a still greater measure of prosperity
It was not to bo expected that while th
soul of the nation was bound up In the wa
the people could give the exposition th
attention It deserves. But now the cloud
of war have passed away and the sun c
prosperity shines In n aky resplendent wit
the stars of the union. This Is a glorlou
year. In 114 days two great navies hav
been destroyed by American mcn-of-wa
and a great army of 250,000 men has bee
routed by 23,000 American soldiers.
Cilve Credit \ehriinka. .
Senator Allen was Introduced and suf
gested that all the credit for this onterprls
did not belong to Congressman Mercer an
himself. Every Nebraskan who had come t
Washington had assisted to bring about th
result. Then the achievement of the man
agement was wonderful. It had been ex
pected that this exposition would be Ilk
that of Atlanta , but It had gone further , an
become the admiration of the world. Ever
citizen of the commonwealth Is proud ot i
and It Is a picture that every Nebraska
will carry In his heart for all time.
Senator Allen was followed by Congress
man Mercer , who was greeted with gcnerou
enthusiasm. He made a happy allusion t
the harmony between the beautifully undu
latlng prairies of Nebraska and the magnlf
cent panorama ot the exposition , one th
handiwork of God , and the other the be ;
production ot man. He refuted the suggee
tlon that thla country Is having too man
expositions , and contended that they are th
most effetclve educators of the people. Th !
exposition Is not to bo seen in a hurry. Pec
pie who take their tlmo and Investigate th
exhibits fully will find hundreds ot thing
that they had never thought ot and the
they would miss altogether If they tried t
sco tbo whole show at once.
The speaker referred briefly to some ot th
most valuable features ot the exposition an
declared that many of them are worth com
Ing from Europe to see. This Is especial !
true ot the Indian encampment , which Is th
history of a race that will soon be extlnc
In conclusion bo eulogized tbo wonderfi
progress that Nebraska has made In the lai
fifty yearn and declared that In a few moi
years It will not only be the greatest cor
producing state In the union , but Its metre
polls will bo the biggest packing center 1
the world.
Tha concluding address by Dr. Mllbur
was heard with more than ordinary In
terest , Ho was Introduced by Senate
Thurston as a man who had been denied tb
sunlight , but whose soul la Illuminated b
the knowledge of God. Dr. Mllburn rcferre

KANSAS CITY , Sept. 20. A special tc

onel William J. Bryan of the Third Nebraska
volunteers will shortly resign his commis
sion In the United States army and resume
the discussion of public questions. This
statement Is not made upon the authority ol
Colonel Bryan , however. When asked to ex
press hltns'Mf on questions ot public Interest
ho said : "You can say that 1 refuse to dis

the army or myself , except that I BCO nt
reason to change the views In regard U

This Is all Colonel Bryan would say ex

not so enamored of camp llfo that I wouli
at the clos > o of war apply for a commlssloi
In the regular army. "
The Third Nebraska Is slated for Cuba am
unless Colonel Bryan resigns , will , wlthli
a few weeks , go south. While ho will no

Colonel Bryan Is looking and feeling well
but Is undoubtedly suffering for the re
stralnt he has placed over himself.
"If you knew , " he said to a reporter fo
the Star , "what It costs mo to keep stll
when there Is so much to say about thing
of Importance to the people and of life
long Interest and moment to me , you wouli
appreciate the strength of my will. "
When asked If ho would talk freely on al
subjects when he has once broken loose h
said :
"You know how It Is when a dam breaks
There Is no telling when the flood stops.1
When his candidacy for the prcsldentla
nomination was suggested ho said : "A mai
may say things and express opinions upoi
public affairs which will not meet publl
approval. These results are not always favorable
vorablo to himself. An Idea Is overythlni
to mo , far moro than any olllce. I can g
down to defeat with an Idea as graceful !
ns any one you ever saw. "
Colonel Bryan would not talk of the con
dltlou of his regiment or the deslrablltt
of Its being mustered out , as It has a dlrcc
bearing on his political and personal at
fairs. He refused to name the date when h
will finally announce his decision to reslg
his commission. He seems to have full
made up his mind , however , to his futur
He said : "I shall do what I think 1
right , regardless of any temporary advantage
tago or disadvantage which may result fror
that action. That is what a man should d
and the only motive which could control hi
actions. "

LINCOLN , Sept. 20. ( Special. ) At th
republican county convention thla afternoon
Judge Hay\\ard addressed the delegates and
spectators for nn hour , taking for his text
the campaign circular recently Issued by
the popocrats ot Nebraska. Ho carefully
and mercilessly dissected the claims ot
economy and wlso business management
made in the document , showing by actual
figures from the records that the economies
boasted of are not economics at all , but
were cither the result of direct violation ot
the state law , ns In tbo case of the purchase
ot buttcrino from n Kansas City packing
liouso Instead of butter from Nebraska
farmers for use In the state Institutions ,
or are mere figments of a lively Imagination ,
such as the claim that the general affairs
ot the state have been moro wisely nnd
cheaply administered by the popocrats than
they were by the republicans , as when the
facts nro that the present administration
has spent $100,000 moro during the last
year for the general running expenses ot
the state than did the administration that
preceded It In the same length of time. Ho
also exposed the chicanery ot the state
house ring In juggling with figures con
cerning tax collections nnd presented nn ar
ray of figures to show that Moscrvo Is as
reprehensible as was Hartley In retaining a
largo sum of state money on his hands ; In
stead of having mailo such a wonderful re
duction of the statu debt ho has merely dis
charged his duty and Instead of having
found the state treasury empty when ho took
the oltlce ho received from Bartley nearly
$1,000,000 In rash nnd has received In ex
traordinary collections slnco then almost
1500,000 more , while of the amount of money
ho received from Bartley almost $500,000
was expressly set aside to bo used In dis
charging the Interest bearing obligations ot
which ho now boasts of having token up.
All the while the regular resources of the
state have been moro than over prolific ,
the result of the general prosperity enjoyed
by the country under the wlso national re
publican administration.
Text of JndRO Hnyivnrrt'H AddreH * .
Judge Ilayward exposed the absurdity of
other claims of the popocrats as well , IIU
speech In full Is :
"In January , 1897 , the administration ot
this state passed under popullstlc control.
A circular recently Issued , signed by the
three chairmen and three eccrctarlcs of the
three alleged 'reform' parties , entitled 'Tho
Ilcform Record' nnd bearing a legend , 'Truth
wears no mask , seeks neither place nor
applause ; all she asks Is a hearing , ' con
tains the claim nnd undertakes to give n
mass of flgurtv ) upon a consideration of
which the populist state officers ask for
ro-electlou. The circular Is authorita
tive nnd Is being widely circulated over
the state. These claims and figures In brief
are that In the olllce of commissioner of
publla lands nnd buildings they have gained
to the state In comparison with republican
record , In round numbers , $358,000 ; In the
office of secretary of state , $19,000. Net
savings by appropriations for the year 1S97
over 1S95 , $371,000 , and In addition to this
largo minis of money In the conduct of iho
olllco -superintendent of public Instruction ,
state treasurer and various state Institu
tions generally.
"Accepting the figures ot this circular the
voter Is led to believe that during the last
twenty months the present administration
has saved to the people ot this state nearly
$1,000,000 , or to bo moro accurate $959,916.43 ,
In addition to the high sounding claims
rondo for the attorney general on account
of suits brought and not yet determined.
These claims , neither small nor modest In
amount , rcqulro candid consideration. The
circular parades these state officers as per
sonification of truth 'wearing no mask , seek
ing neither place nor applause and only
seeking a hearing. ' Are thcso figures a
plain statement ot unvarnished facts , or are
they on the contrary a distorted , Jumbled
mass of misleading statements containing
here and there a half truth contltutlng-
In their entirety nn Imposition and a lie ?
Are these officers truly seeking no place ,
no applause ? Are they simply asking a
hearing , or Is the circular but a specious
plea of the coterlo seeking place and re
election to positions far more remunerative
than are open to any ot them In the walks
of private llfo ?
What 11 Pnrty Mny Claim.
"A party may Justly claim credit for the
legitimate and natural results flowing from
putting Its distinctive party principles Into
practical operation. It can claim no mo
nopoly or Individual honesty. Honesty and
patriotism are a common heritage of good
citizenship. These high attributes are
found In the great majority of pcoplo with
out regard to political affiliation. I appeal
to the citizens of Nebraska , be they pop
ulist , democrats of either variety , prohibi
tionists or republicans , only because I have
confidence In their Intelligence to discern
the truth , nnd equal confidence In their hon
esty to act upon the truth a they see It.
The citizenship of this state Is law abiding ,
honorable and patriotic ; they live In high
hopes and have lofty ambitions for them
selves Individually and for the state at
largo ; they have nothing In common with
the thief , the mischief maker , the dis
turber of public peace or the unpatriotic.
It Is a tenet of every American that hon
esty , faithfulness , efficiency , love of coun
try nnd fidelity In her service should bo
recognized and rewarded , and equally as
strongly embedded In the heart and brain
of every true man of whatsoever party la
the proposition that the lawless , the false ,
ho who has betrayed a trust reposed In
him , In either public or private life , should
bo certainly nnd adequately punished. Wo
make no defense for wrong doing ; wo auk
no Immunity from punluhment for the de
faulting ofllclal who has violated the trust
and the confidence of his f el Iowa and has
brought dUgraco upon his party and the
state. I go further : Whatever may ho
said of the defaulters who belong to other
partle tf.elr name Is legion , I belle fo
unities ot the law eliouia bo
