A delightful contrast ) to the somewhat re-
pcllarit Draco and -the frigid Polaris was Iho
gentlo-'Cygnus the Swan that floated upon
"tho sea of clouds in their rtfar. The tltlan-
ha'lrcd constellation rode in a great chariot
with a crimson-Popped maid to ono side and
a darkor-hucd fairy on the- other nt her feet.
The back of the floating throne was a great
yellow half moon , "fho chariot was drawn
by a great pure white swan that gracefully
floated along the green mass of clouds wllh
gently swaying wings. A clusler of Ak-
Sar-Ben gems crowned IIS beau and its eyes
gleamed with , diamonds. Beneath this veh
icle was tntcod the limpid star that beams
down upon humanity from the heavens. It
was a beautiful and gentle vision that the
constellation presented.
The king of the day and the queen of the
nlrit were the succeeding figures in the
kaleidoscope of the heavens Paolvae , the
sun , and Kun , the moon. The reign of the
one was Just beginning and that of the j
other ending. The bright disk of Sol had
more than half risen from Its bed of purple
clouds and was shedding bright light about
It ; Oh * yellow moon was becoming dim of
light 'and was slowly sinking below the
blanket of vapor. The fairy spirit of the
one was half arisen , that of the olher was
sinking and already half asleep. Olher j
constellations were also dropping away on ,
the approach of the lord of day. The
brightly illuminated picture was one of the
most beautiful In tub line.
"Watched the IMcliuIcn. "
Following the band of Alpha camp , No. 1 ,
Woodmen of'tho World , came the Pleiades ,
the seven daughters of Atlas anil the
nymph , Plelone. Jupiter had made them a
constellation In the sign , Taurus , and Al-
cyono , the brightest , became iho ceuler of
the universe ; at least , so thought the
ancients. One of the sisters was partly con
cealed for having loved the mortal ,
Blsyphus. These seven daughters sparkled
In ralnbow-hued garments above the nebulae -
lao and other lesser stars of ruby and gold ,
The Milky Way * was represented by radlat-
ing bars of gold extending obliquely down
ward. At the rear the two pillars of Her
cules scintillating a bright green nad en
twined spirally with roses of every con-
celvablo color , surmounted this float and
supported vases glowing with ruby flame.
There stood the nymph , Plelone , sllrrlng a
seething caldron of Immortal fire.
Next came No. 10 , Lyra an Immcnso
winged lyre of dazzling gold , upon which
Apollo played. Apollo In his robes of whlto
sludded wllh cold was as handsome as
Adonis Is generally supposed to be. De-
hind him , radiant also in flowing silvery
robrs in graceful folds , spangled with
golden stars , was Vega , pure as a vestal
virgin. As ll appeared lo iho thousands of
entranced spectators , the lyre and Its at
tendant deities were arising from tbo starry
vault of blue empyrean benealh.
Saturn was the next in line , a huge ser
pent , whoso mighty neck , covered with
scales that glltlcrod wllh every lint of Ihe
aurora borealls , lowered high above the
Plutonic Ore , and was surrounded by a
ponderous , ring of gold. A god In a toga of
Imperial amethyst stood In an attitude of
driving this monster , the son of heaven and
earth. This particular hero of the ethereal

procession as No. 12. Scheme of color the
particular Ak-Sar-Den combination and
Ingenuity of device combined to make this
doat ono of the most startling In Its
magnificence , and Its approach waa In
variably heralded with lusty yolla from the
crowds all along the line of parade. Drawn
by two fearful dogs of war , their red Jaws
panting dre and their eyes gleaming with a
flerce green , Mars , togged out In his tradi
tional brown , protected by amulets of shin
ing Iron , helmetcd and plumed , rode war-
rlor-llko In a Roman chariot , whoso wheels
of yellow llame rolled mercilessly through
nebulae of pink stars and ruddy clouds
( suggestive of seas of blood , doubtless ) ,
whilst In the conqueror's wake was Death ,
a grinning skeleton In mournful mantle of
'dark ollvo green. The harness of the doga
consisted of belts of green light to repre-
sent the lightning. The Columbia band
marched ahead of this , playing those
martial tunes most familiar to American
Vulcnn'M Wife Amirnncheii.
Float No 13 was entitled "Venus and
Coming Night. ' ' When darkness draws the
veil over the face of nature slip pins It with
a star. That star Is named for the goddess
, of love Venus. The old mythology repre-
scuts her driving through the heavens in a
gforlous chariot drawn by a bat. It was
this conception that wag worked out in
the float devoted to her honor. Lightly ,
dancing over a billow of fleecy clouds , her
triumphal car high In the jcar was 11- |
lumlncd by a five-pointed star of incandcsj j
i cent lights. The huge blind wanderer of' '
i darkness , spreading Its claw like wings , 1
tugged at the reins In a vain endeavor to
lead the beautiful day star Into his own
I benighted realm.
| | "Tho Great Ship Argo" was the title of
the fourteenth float. This was the bark In
I which the story tells us a brave and ven
turesome band went In search of the GotJen
Fleece , undergoing trials and hardships to
meet with success. The Argo was a single
masted affair with a high prow rising from
the water. Along the gunwale , up the main
mast and across the yardarm were strung
rows of Incandescent lights which , if clec-
1 trlclty had been known to the ancients ,
would have made the little ship a dealing

Ward band and otter It the South Omaha
Equestrian club of 100 men. They were
uniformly attired in white trousers and
hats and wore while gloves.

Float No. 15 was entltred "The Eagle of
the Republic , Under Whoso Generous Wings
There Is Room for All. " It was a huge
bird with golden plumage hovering with
outstrclchcd wings over a writhing snake.
On the head of the reptllo sat an unsteady
crown the crown of the Spanish dynasty.
With every lurch of the doat the eagle's
beak sank deep among its Jewels and
precious gems.
The elxlecnih float was cnlllled "Our
Heroes on the Sea , Whose Prowess Laid a
Nation Low. " It was the first that dealt
with a subject designed to stir the flrcs of
patrlollsm In the breasls of the beholders.
Dewey , Sampson , Schley and Hobson were
the heroes chosen to represent the subject
and no 0110 could luve murmured at the
choice , Four heroic-sized busts of tha'
great naval commanders set In an enclrf
cling wreath of laurel and draped with the
American flag formed the sides of the float ,
Bcforo them rode Columbia's shield and
meeting above their heads were four
anchors painted the dull leaden color of the
modern battleship.

Float No. 17 was enllllcd "Our Heroes on
Land , Unconquered , Invincible. " On a fount
datlon of green bordered by huge palmetlo
leaves a ponderous cannon was guarded by
two soldiers In the uniform of arllllcrymen.
Junt behind Ihcm , on each side , were giant
shlcldi of slars and stripes formed by colored -
ored Incandescent globes. Between and behind -
hind tlio shields , on a marble pedestal , slcod
an alabaster bust of Ihe nation's president ,
William McKlnley. Surrounding the ped

di - ( iucHii or ( inrfiiiiiu : ; .
Governor Bushnell of Ohio was the guest
of honor nt the reviewing stand of the city
hall last evening , and after the unoqualcd
pageant had passed ho said : "Splendid !
Beautiful In conception and artistic In pvery
detail ! "It's ono of the finest parades I ever
had Iho pleasure of witnessing. " With the
governor of the Buckeye stale were the
members of his staff and their wives and
daughters and members of the Ohio com
mission to the exposition. Every om > of
the 650 seats on the big stand was occupied
and the city officials and their families wore
present in full force. Wllh Governor and
Mrs. Bushncll were sealed Ma > or Frank E.
Moores , President Watlles of the exposition
directory and Edward Rosewatcr.
At no point along the line were the
beautiful electric floats more enthusiastic
ally recched thaa by the group of dis
tinguished visitors , slale and city officials
on the grandstand erected In front of the
city hall. From all polnls of Farnnm slreet

It was somewhat after 8 o'clock when
Governor Bushnell and Mrs. Bushnell , ac
companied by the members of the governor's
staff and their wives and daughters , drove
up to the city hall. They occupied a long
line of open carriages , and were escorted
from the Paxton liolel to the reviewing
aland , by Mayor Frank E. Moores , Edward
Rosewater and John L. Websler. As tha
carriages proceeded up Farnara street the
distinguished visitors were recognized ami
gUen "tho glad hand" by Iho spectatort
crowded along the sidewalks. In the party
were : Governor Bushnell and Airs. Bush

Informal Reception FolIovrH.
An Informal reception to the executive
party from Ohio was given In the offices of
Mayor Moores , and a number of the Omaha
city officials , members of the city council
and Board of Education aud prominent citi
zens were present to greet Iho representa
tives of the Buckeye stale. A half hour or
more was pleasanlly spent in social inter
course , and music was furnished by a col
ored quaylet. When the procession was re
ported to be at the lower end of Farnam
street Mayor Moores called the lltlle com
pany to order and said : "Atlenllon , United
Stages of Ohio. A messenger from King
AX-Sar-Ben IV reports that the grand
electrical parade is sighted nt the lower end
of Farnam strcel. We will have time to
reach the reviewing stand and comfortably
seat ourselves before it appears hero ,
suggest that we now adjourn there. Mr.
Rosewaler , cdilor of The Bee , has invited
the party to Inspect ono of the finest news
paper plants In the country after iho parade ,
and wo should be glad lo have you all ac
cept his Invitation and see what a handsome
building wo have in our city. "
Mayor Moores with Governor and Mrs.
Bushnoll then led the way to the reviewing
eland , where Ihe parly found the best seats
reserved for Ihem. During Iho wait lhat
followed for Ihe appearance of Ihe pageant
Iho colored quartet sang a few Bongs , but
the Buckeyes had raoro fun with their little
Imported whistles. Governor Bushncll and
Generals Klngsley and Orr led IB the fun ,
and when Iho governor found a couple of
boys down In front of the stand without
any artificial means of making noise he
quickly handed them down a half dozen
whistles. During Iho passing of the brilliant
show the Buckeyes were enthusiastic In their
praise of the doats , and liberally applauded
all of them and especially those depleting
the military and naval heroes of the late
war.After the parade had passed by and the
Immense crowd about the building hod
somewhat dispersed Governor Bushnell and
party visited The Bee building and were
shown all of the departmenls of Ihe news
paper plant by Mr. Rosewater.
I.lKlitliiK l Loicly.
The artificial daylight dispensed on Ihe
slreets last night was almost the equal of
the noonday variety of the real article , The
citizen who wished 'to ' be on hand at an early
hour In order to secure nn advantageous
frontage might bring his camp chair and his
evening paper and make himself entirely
comfortable until the arrival of "the pageant.
As on olhcr nights , the strings of glowing
bulbs lined the streets on either side and t'he
Irl-colored lines of light arched the matr
thoroughfares. Fifteen thousand incan-
descents and hundreds of arc lights trans
formed familiar avenues of commerce Into
Ihe Efrango gliiierlng boulevards of a won
der city. It was an apotheosis of electricity.
The prlnco of natural forces came inlo his
own as the King of Qulvera had claimed
the fealty of his people on the preceding
night but one.
One pleasing addition 'to the general light
ing effect was contributed by private houses
along the route. Many of them were Illu
minated from cellar to garret and each win
dow added Its stream of light lo Ihe general
effulgence. The business houses also were
more cordial than previously and many
were lighted up In a very generous fashion.
The bright particular radiance centered ol
CQurso about the otflclal reviewing gtund ,
where the court house , the city hall and the
great office buildings diffused n brightness
that put to shame even the heavenly bodies
themselves as they revolved up the hill In
the orbits laid out ! for them.
.Montr the 1,1 in- .
A patrol wagon followed the parade over
the route , but Its services were not required.
t'p to midnight not a report of pocket
picking or any other form of larceny from
the person was reported to the police.
Ono noticeable Improvement In the floats
was the superior arrangPT. nt of the trol

Thrifty property owners were alert again
last j night and the curbs along the route of

The majority of the chairs wore fllled.
The doats beating the plaster heads of
Admirals Dewey , Sampson and Schley and
Lieutenant Hobson and the ono typifying
our army and navy received ono continuous
chfcr from the starling point of Ihe parade
to lls end.
Iho same excellent police protecllon was
noticeable last night that markid the parade
of Tuesday night. All the avenues covered

crushed half way to the knee. He was re

the visiting delegation of Knights Templar
from California , ono of the knights possess

had ho sung the first four bars when the
air was taken up by several thousand peopl. *
with a will. For a time the enthusiasm
aroused by the singing of the stlrrlm ? song
was so great that men threw their * iats in

Coming to the Throne AVH1 lie
the Levee Tonight.
The royal houi&of Ak-Sar-Ben will make
merry tonight , and all of the loyal subjects
of Ihe Immensely pqpular dynasty will be
present at Ihe 935(10 ( to greet the fortunate
prlnco chosen , ,10 be king and the fair
maiden selected fo queen on their accession
to thct throno.
The coronation of King Ak-Sar-Bcn IV.
and bis gracious queen Is an event that has
long been anticipated with happiness by the
thousand knlgtits1 who have sworn allegi
ance to ttie rullrif .monarchs and are eagerly
waiting to tnako their obelimnce and pledge
their fealty to tiiKklvg "and the queen who
will preside ? o'fyr ' Q'e destlnlct.of the klng-
1 dom of QuIvora-hlrSattothor year. For more
tba'u a year Iho'p luce and the princess who
should bo selected on the occasion of the
grand exposition held within the kingdom
boundaries have been the subjects of specu
lation and righlful envy. Who they are Is
known alone lo themselves and the Board of
Governor of thn Knights of Ak-Sar-Ben ,
who act as privy counsellors to their majes
ties , but there are hundreds of subjects who
are quite sura they have guessed the right
names , and most of them have picked differ
ent favorites. The maidens of the kingdom
are , perhaps , the most concerned , and their
excitement over the identity of the queen Is
something unrivaled. The first letter In the
alphabet has been doubly guessed as the
Initial of the queen , and the sixteenth let
ter has been numerously conjectured. But
you can't always tell.
The , arrangements for the grand corona
tion ball are. complete. The big castle Is a
thing of beauty , and will be a Joy at least
while the dance goes on. The grand march
of the knights in costume , preceding the
coronation exercises , will take place
promptly at 9 o'clock and the first of the
twenty-two reeular dances will start at
9.30 o'clock. The music will be
furnished by two flno bands , the Seventh
Ward band of Omaha and the McCook brass
band , each playing alternately , so that there
may be on continuous program of music.
For the dancers the floor has been enlarged
and Improved and for the spectators the
accommodations are superior to tboq offered
nt previous Ak-Sar-Ben balls , Spectators
will bo given the advantage of a reasonably
low charge of admission , but they will not
be permitted to appear on the dancing floor.

, Tuesday Caplaln Artrgul of the Guards at
I Ilayauio was severely stubbed by some per *
Bonn unknown. It la thought ho111 dlo.
Ho Is much disliked by the Inlanders. The
ollldals at llaymno iiroiuptly made several '
arrests , including a iiromlnctit physician ,
Dr. St. Hall. Cuptalii ArlcRUl and St. Hall
ha\o long been bitter personal enemies. The
physician la knuun as an American sympa
thizer. Ho had to leave the Island during
the war , but recently returned. When ar
rested hoas on a sick bed from \\uich ho
was icmcncd to the jail. Popular opinion
acquits him of any connection with the stub
bing. Trouble of this character has been
( cared for some time at Uayamo. A Span
ish icslilout recently skcil for American
protection. General lirooko replied that It
was Imposslblu to furnish the protection. In
the meantime Spaniards must look to the
Spanish authorities for protection , The
Uayamo occurrence Increases the apprehen
sion among the Spanish at San Juan , \\hero
there have been similar Incidents during the
last few days.
The United States postal authorities now
at Hlo I'cdras111 bo icaily to establish an
office hero at the earliest opportunity. The
remainder of General Crncst's brigade , the
Sixteenth 1'ennsyUnnla and the Third Wis
consin , now at Cayey , has received orders
to proceed to Ponce on Friday next. It will
take four days to make the trip. At Pence
thuy will embark for the United States , ar
riving between the 20th nml 15th.
Since the cessation of hostilities the largo
percentage of sickness among these regl-
| ments has been largely due to Inactivity and
lack of Interest , with severe guard and patrol
duty. The men are overjoyed at the pros
pect of returning to the United States.
Seven or eight old mortars , formerly on
the city fortifications , were sold by the Span
ish authorities nml removed to the dock for
shipment. The American commission ob
jected to the removal and the sale was de
clared off. Tito mortars will bo replaced. It
Is said that Captain General Maclas , who
has served Spain long and faithfully , and has
never known defeat or Burremlor , vtin leave
the Island before the formal delivery to the '
American government. The feeling which
prompts this resolution Is fully appreciated
by Americans here.

WASHINGTON , Oct. C. The steady and
rapid growth of our commerce with the
Orient IB Illustrated by a statement Just re
ceived by the Treasury Bureau of Slatlstlcs
showing Iho imporls and e.\ports of Japan
during the first half of the present calendar
This shows lhat Japan's purchases from
the United States continue to Increase with
great rapidity , while In many cases those
which It has been accustomed to make from
other parts of the world nro being reduced.
Its Importations of raw cotlon from Ihe
United Stales In Iho first six months of
189S were 12,732,064 yen in value , against
3,811,828 yen In the corresponding monlhs of
Iho preceding year. The total importallons
of cotton Into Japan in the half year
amounted to 27,702,903 yen in value , an In
crease of a little over 4,000,000 yen over the
corresponding months of 1807 ; vvhllo the
increase from the United States alone was
nearly 9,000,000 yen , showing a general re
duction from other parts of the world , while
the Imporls from Iho United States were
more than trebled.
Our manufactures of Iron and steel seem
to be especially satlsfaclory lo the Japanese ,
Iho Increase in nearly all articles of this
class being strongly marked. The finer
grades of American manufacture also seem
to bo finding favor among the Japanese , Im
ports of American watcVes having Increased
from 93,511 yen in the first half of last
year to 163,690 yen In the first half of Iho
present year , while our own records of ex-
portatlons show an increase In exporls of
typewrllers , sewing machines and olhcr
articles of this class to Japan In the fiscal
year Just ended as compared with those of
the preceding year.
To China our sales also show a gratifying
increase In many articles. The lotal ex
ports from the United States to China In
the month of August , 1898. were f 1,432,211 ,
against $770,570 in the corresponding month
of last year.

WASHINGTON , Oct. G. Senator Morgan
of Iho Hawaiian commission arrived In
Washington today and called nt the Whllo
House for an hour's conference with Iho
In answer lo inquiries Iho senator said
that tbo members of the committee would
meet hero about November 20 and prepare
and present their report to the president
and congress. HP declined lo discuss the
report or the views of Iho commissioners
further than to say that the published reports -
ports of what the commission would do
were wrong In every particular.
"Of course , " ho added , "wo favor a ter
ritorial form of government , ns that was
plainly the Intent of congress as shown In
the act authorizing the creation of the com
mission , but what particular form of terri
torial government we shall recommeiiA con-
not now bo staled. "
The senator , speaking of the- Philippine
question , said that In his juitgtnciU the
United States should retain possession of
the group of Islands , leaving the natives the
right to govern themselves within certain
limitations and within the supervisory In-
structlons of the United Stales.
