It Is the greatest occasion In th ( history of the tosltlon nnd there Is nt doubt that It w.ll be witnessed by thi biggest crowd that has ever assembled Ir the trnnsmlsslsslppl country. There Is n < abatement In the tremendous tide ot peopli that has been pouring Into Omaha durlnf the last forty-eight hours and every ounci ot rolling stock that all the tributary roll' i-oads can furnish Is bringing other thou. Bands to add to those who are already 01 the ground. The ceremonies that will marl the visit of the chief executive ot the na tlon and his official party will bo typlca Institutions under whlcl of the republican this nrcat enterprise was mndo possible They will bo impressive and Inspiring with out the sacrifice of republican simplicity am popular enthusiasm. The president with his party will bft en corted to the grounds In carriages at 1 o'clock and an hour later the exercises o the day will begin on the Grand Plaza These will consist of muilc by Innes' band a very brief Introductory address by Presl dent Wattles , an address by President Me Klnley and the oration of the day by Post master General Charles Emory Smith. Thcs will bo followed by nn elaborate lunch n the cafe and during the afternoon the presl lent will visit the main exhibit buildings hold a short handshaking reception at th Government building and witness the life saving exhibition , sham battle , balloon ns conslon and other feature * of the show. Whllo yesterday's crowd was but th shadow of the tremendous concourse the will pour through the cxposlton gates todaj it ranged well toward the record. Ther has nqver been such a rush toward th grounds na was apparent during ycstorda torenoon. It began ni 7 o'clock In th morning and It was nearly noon bufot tt ' onsp'Ulpn - > he IrnmiportntlMJ llrtf was relieved/ There were hundreds of pit pie waiting before the main entrances whe they were thrown open and hour after hoi the turnstiles turned as rapidly as tt people could bo marshaled through. Tl Sherman nvenuo line handled Its propoi tlon of the crowd fairly well , but tl cross-town and Dodge street lines were n < able to carry the people. The Dodge strei trains seldom hesitated after they left Sh teonth nnd Uodgo streets and the people c North Twentieth street who wanted ride to the grounds had to be content ) with the excellent walking. There was crowd waiting at nearly every block , but i train after train whirled by without enouf room on the footboards to accommoda n fly , the people started tor the grounds t foot. After 9 o'clock there was a continual stream of pedestrians toward the main c ; trance and densely-laden motors dtschargi their loads at the rate of ono a ratnut This was the situation from the time tl gates opened until noon and oven then the was only a slight falling oft In the arrival There was a bigger crowd on tluJ groum nt 10 o'clock than there was at any tin Monday and at noon the big enclosure w , crowded from the Horticulture building the Indian encampment. Even during the afternoon the arrive ran well Into the thousands. In spite the notable attraction of the evening tb tended to keep many of the people who g in on Into special trains down town t : afternoon attendance was unpreccdcnt fnd If the arrival of President McKlnl and the down town parade had not been counter" attraction In the evening t ground ! would have been literally packi As It waa , the total attendance was rals very close to the 2,000,000 mark and will bo passed before a tithe of toda ; visitors have entered the enclosure. It was a feature that nearly all yest < day's big crowd was composed of out-t town people. The local patronage was i ( served until today and when this Is Join with those who were on the grounds yi tcrday and others who arrived last nl § nnd are op the way the aggregate promli to reach stupendous proportions. OIVEX OVEIl TO Tlin GOVCnNOH Second liny of the I'cnoa Jnhllee i Occasion of Felicitation. .The distinguishing feature ot the BCCO day of the Jubilee celebration was the pi tlclpatlon ot the governors ot the trar mlsslsslppl states , which was nlenallzed the usual exorcises In tbo Auditorium at o'clock. Like all other features ot the di these wcro attended by n big crowd n when tbo ufllclal party arrived It fou nearly every scat In the building occup by an attentive listener. Although I representation of governors was dccldei limited , the absence of several who t been expected did not prevent the cclobi tton from arousing more than ordinary : terest. The speeches continued lone enou to satisfy the crowd when there was much to see nnd bear In other parts of I grounds and not too Ions to wear out enthusiasm. An invocation by Rev. B. Wrli Butler of St. Mary's Avenue Cong gatlonal church was followed by tha open ! address by Governor Holcomb. In his marks the governor brought out a co jiarlson between the progress ot this coun during the past hundred years and t which had been achieved during the sa period by any other nation. It Is no won that we can build nn exposition that Is admiration of tbo world , for here the r p sontatlon ot what has been done In I'ho 1 half century Is a revelation to every vlil nnd a source ot pride and pleasure to ev citizen ot the transmltslislppl country. Ft no source had more willing co-operation b experienced than from the chief exccutl ot the various transmUslsnlppl states. T bad been quick to perceive the advanta that would result from" the expoiltlon i zealous In their efforts to assist in making It a success. CclchrntrN Great Victorian. In discussing the sentlmeuv of the day the speaker spoke of the victories that had dccn won on the field nnd on the seas stnco the exposition opened and declared that It was entirely fitting that the American people should gather hero In the midst of the great est victory of peace to congratulate each other on the triumphant issue ot the moat brilliant campaign that has ever signalized our arms. After a selection by the band , President Wattles Introduced Governor Alva Adams of Colorado , whoso excellent address was puuc- , uattd with hearty applause. He congratu- ated his audience on the fact that there were not more governors present. No wordfc ot theirs , he declared , could compensate them for the artistic melody ot all that was out side the building. This is the best cxposl- : lon over known , and If It does not Inspire setter aspirations In the hearts of the people ple , Us mission Is In vain. It Is the child of the west , but while wo give fealty to the west , wo are not disloyal to the east. Dut wo have a special Interest In the place where our homes are built , where our children wcro born and which holds all that wo love and cherish. Governor Adams spoke In eloquent terms of the effect of this exposition on the people of tbo cast. Many of them have still con sidered the west as an uncivilized and foreign land. Dirt the audacity of this en terprise has opened their ey i3 , given a new trend to their , thoughts and taught them that tbo Mississippi river Is not the western boundary of the republic. It Is In tbo west that real manhood Is most frequently found. Here the man Is not bound by tradition or prejudice. He may not have a full Idea of the civilizing effect of a dress suit , but when It comes to ful filling the Ideal of the republic he would lose nothing by comparison with any man on earth. This led tov a discussion of the gallant achievements of American soldiers nnd sailors during cho last few months , and ho declared that through nil ages to como these would stand as types ot heroic sncrllco nnd patriotic endeavor. The/1 are woith more 10 the American peopln than all their mlnos of gold and waving harvests. It would bo unpatriotic to de-chins that the ling Hint has been planted on foreign shores nt the cost of such heroic sac'Jfieo shall not stand there forever. The exerci.j3 were concluded by a very brief address by Presiunnt Wattles nnd tbt-u the audience was dismissed , while the guber natorial party was entertained at lunch by the exposition management. NEW MEXICANS HOLD EXERCISES Krlef Kormnlltlen ot the SI I licit anil 311nln 1C Itiilldlnu- . The New Mexico day exercises were heli In the territory's space In the Mines build' Ing at 11 o'clock yesterday , and whll < the attendance ot residents from Now MexIco Ice was not large , those who were then were cufflclently enthusiastic to make u | for what they lacked In numbers. , Then were a number of prominent people pres eut from the territory , Including Captali Lceson , who Is one of the exposition com mlssloners , Commissioner Prince , the orator tor of the occasion , Colonel Albright , th veteran newspaper man of the territory and a number of others. Commissioner Prince read a letter fron Governor Otero , who expressed his regret In not being able to attend , having beei detained at home by some Important pub lip buMnrss.

N'urtlt nuil South Exchange a Heart nnd Itrotherly Greeting. The North and South Handshaking Jub eo was ono of the features of yesterday : .bo exposition. The exposition manag < mcnt turned Its work In connection with tl handshaking over to Superintendent Kell of the musical department and ho at on Int9 conference with General Passer ger Agent Lupton ot the San Antonio Aransas Pass railway and Prof. Atwatcr < the Texas exhibit. The plan was outllm and was carried out In accordance with th outline. At 2 o'clock hundreds of'the vis tors from the south congregated at tbo we cud of the lagoon and many hundreds of tl northern people met at the cast end of tl little body of water. Each section was ai companlcd by a band. A few moments lati Superintendent Kelly appeared upon' ' tl viaduct spanning the lagoon and con n.enced to wigwag with a handkerchie tied to the end ot a long pole. This sign was for the bands to bcgln to play. Do1 struck up familiar airs and continued f ten minutes , when Superintendent Kol again wigwagged , this time for the tv processions to move. The band heading tfie delegation from tl south played "Dixie , " while the muslcla who preceded the northern forces renden "Marching Through Georgia. " The t\ great bodies , each containing several hu : dred men and women , marched along tl north side of the lagoon until they reach the Plaza In front of the Admtnlstratli arch , where the bands Joined and play "The Star Spangled Banner. " The eelc tlon having been completed , Prof. Atwat of Texas stepped Into the open space a : said that In behalf of the people ot t soutb he wanted to congratulate the expoi tlon management upon Its success In bull Ing up and carrying on a great show , t like of which bad never before been se upon this or any other continent. Ho s : that the people of the south and especial those ot Texas have done all that lay their power to make It a great nchlevcmei The railroads ot the south , he said , and tt ot Aransas Pass In particular have aided t south In making It possible for the count to bo bore with Its exhibits and Its pcop y doing this by contributing money and ma ing the lowest possible passenger rates. This ended the specchmaktng and t handshaking commenced. At flrst It was a weak way , but It seemed to be contaglc and in less than five minutes hundreds men , women and children were nil shnkl hands and all shaking at the same tin Old battle-scarred veterans who tout against each other thirty-five years c grasped hands and appeared to be as gl to see each other as though they wi brothers separated for a long period ( ContiBued oa Fifth 1'ate. ) ' SPAIN PLAYS FOR MORE TIME Oommiuioners Try to Delay Settlement of Cuban Question , AMERICANS TAKE A RESOLUTE STAND Inform Alplioimo'N Itoprencntntlvcn Tlmt All Such Tnctlcn Are Futile Spain Prefer * Amrrlcnn lo Cnbnii Ilnle In Cuba. ( Copyright. 1S98 , by Press Publishing Co. ) PARIS. Oct. 11. ( New York World Cable- cram Special Telegram. ) At the Joint meeting of the peace commissions to day I heard that the Spaniards pre sented the reply ot their govern ment to the refusal of America to assume any liability for the Cuban > debts Precedents were quoted , including Alsace- Lorraine. In support of the Spanish conten- tlonr one object apparently being to extract from the American commissioners some statements as to the future government ot Cuba. The American commissioners com mitted themselves to no statement on that subject , while notifying the Spaniards In the plainest terms that the Washington decision about the debt Is Irrevocable. The Spaniards then asked for a postpone ment of the question until other points of the projected treaty were disposed of. To this request Day , having consulted his col leagues , returned a firm refusal , whereupon the Spaniards asked for an adjournment of the meeting until Friday. To this the United States had no option but to agree , but Intimated that delay was futile. The American representatives will probably stipulate for a temporary government In Cuba by America. All the Spanish com- mlcsloners far prefer American rule In Cuba to Cuban Independence and this accurately represents the sentiment of the Spanish people. Senantloiinl Ilenort. LONDON , Oct. 11. A dispatch to the Exchange Telegraph company from Paris says the United States nnd Spanl-h peace commlssoners are at entire varlcncs re garding the question of tbo disposition of the Philippines and that they have re ferred the matter to their respective gov ernments. WASHINGTON , Oct. 11. The pence com missioners In Paris , so far from reaching a point of absolute variance on the question of the Philippines , have not as yet taken up that subject for consideration. It Is true that at the very flrst session of the Joint commission the Spanish representatives sought to raise a question concerning the occupying of Manila bay and town by the United States and military officers. The United States commissioners promptly re fused to consider thl point In any -aspect and , with some , reluctance , the Spaniards gave over for the time being the effort to raise that Issue. Since then the commission , whenever meeting Jointly , has been engaged entirely with three questions to the complete exclusion ot the Philippines. These ques tions relate entirely to Cuba. Porto Rico nnd Cuba , and , according to the very last re ports from the American commissioners from Washington , they are still under con sideration. The United States will not assume any financial Indebtedness as the.result of the cession or release ot Cuba and Porto Rico. It was fully expected by the authorities here that the Spanish contingent on thq peace commission would make a strong effort to make the assumption ot the heavy financial obligations of these Islands'a condition of the cession of Porto Rico and the abandonmen of sovereignty over Cuba , but the American commissioners were fully and definitely In ' structed on these points , and the genera tenor of these Instructions was that such obligations were not to bo assumed by the United States.

The bidding opened at that fig ure , when , to the amazement and delight ot the assembled crowd , Frasquelle , Zola's publisher , bid 32,000 francs. The table was cnocked down to him. The sale ended , amid vociferous cheers and congratulations.

PARIS HAS A WARLIKE LOOK Pronpeat for Trouble Greater than at Any Time Since the DayH Pre ceding the Commune. PARIS , Oct. 11. In spite ot the optimistic predictions of the end of the strike being near , the strike continues to spread. The bricklayers and wood carvers today decide-1 to join the strikers. The city , however , U perfectly quiet , but the enormous Increasi in the strength of the garrison points to th < fact that the government fears political rather than labor , troubles.

Since he was eluded president Mr. McKlnley has never until now traveled west of Chicago , and the immense crowds at the stations along the Northwestern road showed the appreciation of the people for the opportunity of greeting Vhelr chief magistrate. The weather was nb- Eolutely perfect , the sun shining bright and clear after last night's heavy rain. Kven at the smallest stations good sized crowds wcro In waiting , whose only hope ot reward was the possibility of a passing glance at tbo president as the train swept by. The flrst stop was made at DeKalb at 9:05 : and here the president spoke a few words In response to the crowd's enthusiastic welcome.

I appreciate your geucroua welcome , and share with you In congratula tions to our country and to > our army and navy for the successful Issues of the last four months. I run sure there has never been a ! time In our history when patriotism has been more marked or more universal than it Is to day , and the fame high purpose which characterized tbo conduct of the people In war will Influence and control them in the settlement of peace. " At DIxon and Sterling , where brief stops were made , the crowds were so dense thai hundreds could not even obtain a glimpse ot the president. Mr. McKlnley made nc attempt to talk at these points , but occupied the time vtlth shaking hands with those whc were close enough to the rear platform. A Urge number ot those were school children and the smallest ot them made frantic en- deavprs to reach the president's out stretched hand.

Richelieu and conducted the n est brilliant campaign on land and sea the world has ever witnessed. Twice before has William McKlnley been the guest of Omaha , each time as the repre sentative of a party struggling for su premacy.

At the same time the street cars were unable to carry halt the people who were otlll coming. The streets far out Into the residence districts were lined with pe destrians hurrying to the streets on which the presidential pageant was to move and these mingled finallyIn tbo Impact throng that seemed already to fill every foot ot standing room. The density ot the crush was apparent whqn the president arrived and tbo police attempted to clear a passage way for the carriages. llnrdly U"um iu Puna. From the foot of Farnam street to tin city hall the people were crushed In a co hesive body that had scarcely elasticity enough to yield. The first file of police barely succeeded In opening a narrow foot path. Tbo next Jammed the people harder against the walls on either sldo and finally the mounted troop rode their horses In the faces of the crowd and It fell back with crushing force on those behind and left barely room for the carriages to pass. This was continued all along tbo line , but evu the unbearable crush did not chill the en thusiasm of the people. When the carriage which contained President McKlnley was perceived tbo crowd burst into a voclfcrou * cheer that never scorned to cease. When one volco tired another .took It up and the whole .line of march was a single demon stration of swelling cheers and waving hats and flags. At frequent Intervals the presi dent ho\\ed right and left and his recogni tion gave new Impetus to the ovation.

And this broke forth In new ardor with the appearance ot each of the officials and guests as they wcro recognized by the crowd. When the carriages which carried General Miles and the other heroes of the war came Into view the enthusiasm culminated In a shout that fairly made the big buildings quiver and thousands of flags that had waved a greet ing to the president were raised again In tribute to the blue and gold and the men who wore It. It was Impossible to move the parade of Ak-Bar-Bcn at once and It required nearly an hour and the most vigorous ex ertions on tbo pari ot the police to suffi ciently clear the streets to permit Its passage. When this -was accomplished the pageant moved rapidly over the line of march and the magnificent spectacle was cheered almost as enthusiastically as that which bad gone before. Then with a final outburst the crowd broke and swept In every direction. It swamped the street cara and overflowed by thousands Into the streets that led homeward. It had been Jammed and crushed and elbowed almost beyond tha limit of human endurance , but It had per formed Its duty und went homo happy. Immediately after reviewing the parade President McKlnley and his party were driven to the Omaha club , where they will bd quartered during their stay In Omaha. Shortly after a lunch was spread In the dining room for thu distinguished guests , mernpers of the reception committee and tha directors of the club. In this President McKlnJjy did not participate.
