To itho Hawkeye state , assisted by The
Ilco's special excursions , belong the honot
of having the biggest state 'lay of any com
monwealth that has yet made Itu obeisance
on the exposition grounds. Us celebration
was attended by the second largest crowd
of the season and every feature was carried
out with an enthusiasm that Inspired the
most hearty admiration. The attendance
exceeded the record for the opening day by
several thousands and the high water mark
of July 4 waa very nearly reached Iowa
day 'vns a tremendous success In every de
tail and It will remain one of the red let
ter .tlays of the exposition. The exercises
nl ( ho day were hcunl by the biggest audi
ence that has ever assembled In the Audi
torium and the program was In every re
spect commensurate with the Importance
of the occasion. The parade was n real
feature and not such a perfunctory affair
ns sometimes accompanies similar demon
strations and the minor Incidentals of the
celebration were of sufficient merit to Inter
est every visitor.
But , nftcr all , the crowd was the dis
tinctive nnd striking feature of the day
From the west heavily loaded trains
brought thousands ot people who joined the
popular excursion organized by The Bee
From the east the HawKcycs came In crowds
that swamped the railroads and threatened
to depopulate the state. And when the twc
big crowds mergrnl Into one Inside the exposi
tion , gates they filled up the big enclosure
nt a rate that almost equaled the
tremendous congregation of the Fourth 01
Jury. The railroads wcro simply un <
ublo to haul the people who wanted te
como to Omaha yesterday and every tralr
that pulled across the bridge was loaded te
the doors. The ctush was almost as greai
on the street catlines. . Early yesterday
morning the street railway company turned
out every piece of rolling stock In Its
bains. The loop service on th (
Twenty-fourth street and Shermar
uveutu IIiiosns multiplied iMtl the tralm
vero frequently running less than 200 feel
npart and oven nt Mnt every car cnrrlce
nil the pcoplo that could hang on the foot
boards. All three cf the lines leading te
the crounds wcio run to their full ca
paclty nnd the rush continued well Into thi
Jum nt thn Gntex.
At the grounds the crowd was In evldenci
from the minute the gates were opened
Several hundred people were waiting at thi
main entrances when the gatemen unlockci
U their turnstiles and from then until lati
In the afternoon the stiles scarcely ceasei
turning. Thcro was n continual crush li
front ot the ticket windows , but the crowi
was admirably handled nnd no ono cxpe
ilenced any avoidable delay. Before '
o'clock the rush was on In full force am
for four hours there was no let up. Evei
the Sherman nvenuo gate south of th
Horticultural building was literally be
sieged by visitors who headed for the low ;
building before beginning their Inspcctlo
ot the grounds. The stnto building wa
flooded with Haw key es all day am
after 8 o'clock It was almost Impossible t
move through the apartments. The low
commissioners were overwhelmed , bu
Jubilant , nnd they congratulated each othe
on the prospect that the attendance rccor
might bo broken.
The arrival of the parade Foon nfter
o'clock added a very considerable contlngen
to the crowd and then the arrivals vvcr
less numerous until toward evening , who
there was quite a liberal local patronage
During the evening when the crowd cam
out ot the buildings to enjoy the Illumlna
tlons and the attractions ot the Mldwn
the avenues wcro almost solidly jammed wit
promcnndcrs. The Plaza concert and th
llrnttorks entertalnr-d Immense audience
and the Midway attractions played to house
that were packed it ) the wnlla.
None of the exposition officials have bee
nble to obtain definite Information In re
\ \ gard to the prospective attendance ot Mod
cm Woodmen today. The local commlttc
of the ardor has expended a good den
ot energy and printers' Ink In organlztn
the demonstration and Us members nro cor
tldcnt that there wlir be not less tha
fi.OOO Woodmen on the grounds. As th
bulk of the Iowa visitors and nearly a !
those who wcro brought In by The Bco ex
curslon will remain over It seems that thi
will ba another record-breaking day.

The official celebration In the Audltorlui
yesterday afternoon filled the big bulldln
ns It has never been filled before. Ever
seat was taken long before the hour fc
the exercises to begin and still there wt
no Interruption ot the demands for ad
mUslon. The people filled the lobby nn
stood In the aisles by hundreds. Prom tli
Btago to the pinnacle of the gallery thei
was scarcely enough space left to uccommc
date n 10-year-old child und If the build
lug hud been halt us big again It woul
ha\o been filled as completely. The prc
gram was commensurate with such an as
lemblngo. There was not too much orator
und what ! there was wan worth hearlni
The speeches wcro Interlarded with music ;
selections of more than ordinary merit nu
the entire proceeding was vitalized by tt
enthusiasm ot tha day.
The official party arrived very nearly o
time nnd v.fts greeted with vigorous a [
plause. Vice President Allan Dawson i
the Iowa commission called the crowd I
nrdtr and Introduced the Ladles' band i
Eldorn , which rendered an overture In
fulrfy capable manner. An Impressive Ir
vex-atlon by Rev. A. S. Barnes ot Counc
Bluffs was followed by a vocal solo t

very trying nt > lccllou with excellent taut
She displayed a eoprano voice ot exception !
ran e and purity , which was heard to bei
tcr advantage In the ballad with which at

Governor tihaw was then Introduced tc
the audience welcomed htm with a generous
demonstration , His address was brief but
pertinent , and It was heard with close at
tention. He paid :
Ladles nnd Gentlemen , Citizens nnd
friends of Iowa "Not many generations ago ,
In the place where you now sit , encircled
by all that exalts and embellishes clvllbed
life , Iho rank thistle nodded In the breeze ,

So said Charles Sprnguc , three-quarters of
a century ago , and the utterance Is as true
when applied to the land of the Omahas as
to the land of the Wnrapauongs.

In the welcome ho extended on behalf ol
the exposition management President Wat
tles declared that Iowa Is the finest agricul
tural state in the union , It has a smallei
percentage of untlllablo land than any othei
territory In the world. It has a smallei
percentage of Illiteracy and fewer criminals
This condition ho charged to the fact thai
farming was the principal vocation of the
state's people. Agriculture breeds virtue
nnd contentment and this Influence is ap
parent In the Hawkeye state. There are
no largo cities to draw the people Inte
faster living and to Inbplre them with the
greed for gain.
Continuing the speaker dwelt on tEi
hardships and difficulties that wen
encountered In the pioneer life o
the state. Their struggles will
these conditions left the people ln <
ured to hardship and able to fully appro-
elate the luxuries and conveniences tha
cuino with civilization How gladly tin
settlers who saulcd their wheat 200 mllei
to market and then sold It for -10 cents i
bushel welcomed the scream of the englni
nnd the approach of the railroads. It Is ni
wonder , ho declared , that the people o
such n state should bo Intelligent , prosper
oua and happy.
Referring to the exposition , Prcslden
Wattles congratulated the visitors on thi
fact that their state had been the first ti
line to support the enterprise. The re
suit U the crowning glory of the west. I

LONDON , Sept. 21. ( New York World
Cablegram Special Telegram ) The Dally
News' correspondent Interviewed Esterhazy
today a ; , he was about to tuko the train for
Paris Esterhazy said-
"Voit do not recocnlzo me. That Is not
so astonishing. Such as you see me I passed
for several dajs before secret agents to
watch Mme Pay's domicile and not one
of them recognized me. I fancy there weie
fifteen of them the first night , but I mis
trusted e\ents and I was right. I said to
General Pelllcux after the sulcldo of Colonel
nel Henry that It would now bo Impossible
to stop things and that the movement
would be formidable The generals loat
their heads I wrote Cavalgnao a long let
ter , making him acquainted with the moat
salient points In the affair. Ho refused to
receive me. My ruin had been determined
upon , t uns thrown o\eiboard and the
only course open to me was to co away
and await developments General Pellle-ux
said he Knew that the Henry document was
n forgery. I told him at the assize court
that nothing could be built on such founda
tion : ) . He did not listen to me , contenting
himself with the similarity In texture of
the paper reaemblnnco , which was only ap
parent and not confirmed by a closer ex
amination. As I wrote to the minister there
are officers who either from Ignorance or
sheer pervcrseness are hiding the truth
from him. I offered In my second letter
to prove it to him as clear as day , but ho
once moro refused to give mo a hearing.
There wcro but three persons who Knew
the tiuth of the matter Colonel Sandherr ,
Colonel Henry and myself. The first two
nro dead and I alone hold the s > ecrct. "
Major Estcrhazy said he had also writ
ten to M Martin , commissioner of delega
tions Judlclares , who on petition of the offi
cer's cousin had summoned him to appear
before him "I told him , " sold the major ,
"that I refused to attend as I had no con
fidence In Justice and that my cousin's ap
plication was only a pretext to create a di-
"erslon to arrest me and render me help
less. "
Esrerhazy said ho was now reflecting as
to what course It would bo best for him
to follow. "I do not know , " ho added ,
"whether I shall make use of the docu
ments and papers In my possession. It will
depend on the march of events "
The Dally Paris correspondent hears from
a gentleman who recently visited Colonel
Plcquart In prison thai ) ho was perfectly
stern and resolute. Plcquart remarked.
"The maximum Imprisonment I can receive
Is five years. If the worst shoutd como to
the worst I will serve that time , hut when
I como out again It will only bo to recom
mence and so on until justice has been done

PARIS , Sept. 21. The papero here say
the minister of war , General Chanolnc , has
examined the documents In the Dreyfus case
and has ordered the prosecution of former
Colonel Picquart , on the charge of forgery
and using forged documents.
The trial of Coloner Picquart and M. Lob-
los , a lawyer , on the charge of revealing
documents concerning the national defense ,
was to have begun today before the correc
tional tribunal. The public prosecutor , how
ever , asked for nn adjournment on the
ground that the prosecution of Colonel Plc
quart on the charge of forgery and using
forged documents had been ordered by the
minister ofvarM. . Labor ) , who was counsel
for M. Zola during the latter's famoun
trial , Indignantly opposed the adjournment ,
which , he said , was an attempt to hand
over Colonel Plcquart Into the clutches of
the military authorities.
Colonel Plcquart ! then rose and made a
statement which caused a sensation. He
said "This is , perhaps , the last time I
shall speak In public. I shall sleep , per
haps. In the military prison of Chercherol.
Thetefore , I wish to declare that If I find
there the ati angling cord of Le Mcrcler
Plcard , or the razor of Colonel Henry , It
will bo murder , for I have no Idea of com
mitting suicide. "
The audience was Intensely moved and
shouted , "Vivo Plcquart. " The Judges , how
ever , after a abort deliberation , decided to
Indefinitely adjourn the case and Colonel
Plcquart was led away between policemen.
Lo Mercler Plcknrd , the man referred to
by Colonel Plcquart , was a detective , under
stood to have been employed In the Drey
fus affair , who was found haneed In Ills
lodgings about a year ago , under circum

LONDON , Sept 21 A special dispatch
from Paris says the deputy representing
French GuUna In the Chamber has re
ceived a dlspafoh announcing that a mutiny
has taken place among the convicts at
Cayenne , the capital of Trench Guiana.
The mutineers , It appears , overpowered and
murdered their guards , then stormed the
military store bouso and seized the arms
and ammunition there. They nro now , ac
cording to the dispatch , besieging the prin
cipal prison and It Is feared they are In for
freeing the 1,000 convicts confined in the
building. Reinforcements have been tele
graphed for to the Island of Martinique , but
It Is bald they will not arrive In tltno to
suppress the muciny.
Devil's Island , where Albert Dreyfus , the
former captain In the French artillery , Is
confined under sentence for having sold se
crets of the war olllce to a foreign govern
ment , Is but a short distance from Cayenne.
U is/possible that the revolt of convlcte
may be the death knell of the prisoner ,
whose condemnation has so stirred up the
French nation , for his guards are under
strict orders to kill him It any attempt
Is made to release him , or If there la an ;

blame for disasters , the responsibility for
which rested on all parties. I , personally ,
have always favored autonomy for Cuba ,
Spain being unaMe to forcibly maintain her
sovereignty at such a great distance. "
Continuing , Senor Montero Rlos said"It
Is useless to speak ot our disasters. Hai
not the country accused all our governments
ot exhibiting too much weakness towards
the United States ? What Spain wanted was
a man ready to sacrifice himself and who
recognized the Impossibility ot war with a
powerful nation , especially after years ot
useless conlllcts with Insurgents. "

The report that the last Spanish garrison

premature. The Spaniards still hold seven

pared with last year's figures. Further

"All statementB that I expect to go to

false. I did want to go to Havana and
I have so stated a number of times.
"I told General Miles that I was a soldier
nnd had no favors to ask , but I had the
strongest desire to go to Havana with ray
troops. I presume If there was any large
movement of the army General Miles would
command and all I ask Is the command o (
of the troops In the lead of that movement.
"It amuses me to hear of General Blanco'a
expressed regret that he aid not have a
chance to try conclusions with the Americana
before peace was declared , General Blanco
Is not a soldier. He Is unfit physically tc
command. He knovva absolutely nothing
about modern military tactics. I know

better than to move against Havana with
