Today the Transmlsslsslppl and Interna
tional Exposition mounts the very plnnacU
of its glory nnd extends a greeting to th (
president of the United States and the un
numbered thousands who come to do bin-
honor. 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.

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.
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
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.

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

ot Aransas Pass In particular have aided t

This ended the specchmaktng and t
handshaking commenced. At flrst It was

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
Senantloiinl Ilenort.
LONDON , Oct. 11. A dispatch to the

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
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.

CHICAGO. Oct. 11. President McKInlcy
and members of his cabinet passed through
the outskirts of Chicago today bounl for
the Omaha exposition. No effort wa * nut. "
to extend n demonstrative greeting. A dole-i
nation of Northwestern railway ofHcluls and
m.'mbers of the peace jubilee conur.lttec
boarded the tram Lear Western avenue atd
greeted the presidential party Informally.
The train was quickly'transferred to the Chicago
cage & Northwesternrailway , over which
line the party continued their journey ,
A special car was attached to the presi
dential train nt Park station for Governor

Trnlii Ilenchea Clinton.
CLINTON , la. , Oct. 11. The presi
dent's journey from Chicago to the
Mississippi river today was a con
stant ovation. 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.
"It was r.o part of the program , " said Mr.
McKlnley , "that I should bo welcomed by
i the- people of DeKalb at this hour of the
morning , bu | . 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. A young man at Dlxor
climbed upon the ledge of the platform jus
as thq train was moving out. He clung to tin
railing and , reaching out his hand , said

The biggest and most cuthuslastlc crowd
that over assembled on the streets of Omaha
gave hearty and tumultuous greeting last
night to Uic president ot the United States.
The city was nblnzo with light , gorgeous
with color and resonant with choere. It was
a nclcomo worthy ot the Exposition city ,
worthy ot Its distinguished guests and
worthy of the president who , In the last few
months , baa achieved the diplomatic tri
umphs of a. 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. Last night ho came ns the execu
tive ot the nation and the whole people con
gregated to bid him welcome and vent their
ardor In the greatest demonstration'that
Omaha has ever Been. Thousands of people
ple from every part of the transmlsslsslpp'l
Country Joined with Ak-Sar-Ben and hli
loyal subjects In tbo ringing cheers ot
greot'ng. ' The streets ot the city wore re
splendent with electric radiance and patri
otic colors swept In profusion over the up
turned faces of the tremendous concourse
that waited to catch'a glimpse ot Us presi
dent and lend volco and Inspiration to the
patriotic tumult. The pavements were car-v
potcd with a solid mass of pushing , crowd -
Irg , surging humanity that packed Itself so
densely that it was almost Impossible to
force a passage. Long before 6 o'clock the
people began to congregate at the most
favorable vantage points and early In tha
evening the Jam In the streets was unprece
dented. 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. Un- ,
dcr the red , green and yellow ot the elec
tric arches and the shimmering glory ot
myriads of Incandescent bulbs the scene
nvns ono well calculated to Inspire the pa-
* trlotlsm of the multitude. 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. Ho was some
what fatigued after his long Journey and
the excitement of the evening nnd nt once
retired to his apartments on the flrst floor ,
which had been especially refitted for his
occupancy. 'Meanwhile ' the remainder ot
the party spent a very pleasant hour over
the luncheon , which was enjoyed In a thor
oughly Informal manner ,
Prenldcnt on the Fair.
The special committee which met tha
presidential train at Council Dluffs consisted
of Edward Rosewater , Z. T. Llndscy , P. P.
Klrkendall , E. K. Bruce and A. L. Recda
While the train was crossing the bridge
the president expressed himself as highly
gratified over the success of the exposition.
He remarked that this of Itself Is a good
testimony to Its excellence. These great in
dustrial fairs , he observed further by way
of phllocophlctl comment , are the very bent
promoters of peace In the world. As the
president felt somewhat fatigued by his trip
every effort was made by the committee to
cave him nil unnecessary annoyance and
only the ordinary Interchange ot Ideas
passed between them.
A question , howuver , was ventured as to
whether Senator Hannii was coming , as Mr.
Hunna wait not on the train , The presi
dent's response was to the effect that it > > '
