At iho Nebraska building the women oC
the Women's Hoi let Corps held a celebra
tion at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The
cuerciqcs wore held In the main rotunda
of , tho. building , and were heard by an audi
ence of complimentary proportions , In which
old soldiers and their families were In a
majority.A number'of ' excellent addresses
were mingled with enjoyable Vocal selections
by Leo G , Kratz and Miss Frances Iloeder.
Mayor Frank B. Moores welcomed the or
ganization to Omaha In a brief address , In
which ho spoke earnestly of the Invaluable
services -that they had performed for their
country both In the 60s and during the
more recent war. Ho presented them with
the golden key to the city and assured
them that no body that had visited the city
was received with a more cordial welcome.
Mrs. Abbio A. Adams of Superior , de
partment president for Nebraska , added'a
very graceful greeting In behalf ot the de
partment , and thcsn sentiments wcro recog
nized In an appropriate manner by Mrs ,
Rosalie U. Condon.
The principal address was by Mrs. Flo
Jameson Miller , national president of the
organization , who spoke with much feel
ing and not a little eloquence. Presldeut
Miller nald that on the preceding day while
tha achievements of the army and navy
were being extolled , t < he had waited In vain
to hear ono ot the orators say a word In
bchalt of the women. It was left to the
Cuban , Seuor Quesnda , to pay a well do-
curved tribute to what had been done by
American womanhood in this decisive strug
gle. She added that she did not wish to
detract from the honors that had been won
by the American soldiers and sailors , but
Eho did wish to emphasize the heroic sacri
fices aud services of American women ,
The speaker then referred briefly to the
history ot warfare In this country and

Mpcclolly to the civil war , In which their
organization had Its birth. This conflict
revolutionized all Ideas of war oh land and
tea. Ground was won ami lost arid won
again and nothing In history has over
equated It , War Is no now thing. Every
century , has been ushered In by a great
conflict , and heroes have been cradled in the
lap of every age. The civil war was the
first that had been waged from motives of
humanity. In previous conflicts .ambition
had lighted the fuse , but every gun from
Sumter to Appomattox echoed the 'declara
tion' that God was tired of' slnrcs. She
commented on the galaxy of heroes that the
war had left to tbo country ami on how few
o theni were left. Tbo Cuban war had
also been Inspired by motives' bf humanity
and Its heroes are still with us.

c. .dozen horses stepped on him before ho
could get out of the way. As u result of
this display of poor judgment upon thtf port
of Little Horn he Is In the Emergency bos-

At yesterday's battle General Shatter and
c. number of other army officers occupied
frpnt seats In the reviewing stand and. with
a. great deal of Interest wltnessed'the light
bptwecn the Sioux and their allies and the
Dlackfeot and their allies. As has fre-
auentfy happened before the Sioux wore
i mmanded by Gocs-to-War and the des
tinies of the IJlackfeet and the men who had
cst their lot with them were looked after
by Dig Uravo. It was the eamo old story.
General Shatter has scon all kinds of fightIng -
Ing , but the battle of yesterday was some-
thlng new. After the last shot had been
fired 'Captain Mercer lined all of his In
dians. both young and old , male and female ,
UD In front of the reviewing stand. There
they gave three rousing cheers for the gen
eral , who climbed down from the reserved

Kid scores of other big men , By this time
tbo general discovered that ono hand was
not enough and commenced to use the other ,
bringing both Into action. This continued

The whtto people were just as anxious
to meet General Shatter as were the In
dians mul after the reception off the red men

and there spent half an hour receiving the
men and women who clustered about him.
Speaking of 4110 sham battle , General

All the people connected with the Ne
braska exhibits are making extensive prep
arations for the observance ot Nebraska
day , which has been set for October 19 , at
which time it is contended that not less
than 00,000 people from the state will be
In 'attendance. There will bo exercises at
the Auditorium , but ns yet the program
has not- been completed. The railroads have
made a low rate for the occasion and this
alone , It Is said , will bring In a crowd that
will bo a record breaker , leaving Presiden
tial day out of consideration.
Ono feature of Nebraska day , however ,
has gouo upon the card and that will bo tbo

several of the people about the place hur

It Is n sad commentary that these brave
officers nnd soldiers are returning to thulr
own land with more honors accredited by the
world than the army of any other nation
only to find the polfoncd shafts of partisan
traducers. The glory won by them has
been too great nnd too strongly Impressed
on the nations of the earth to have Its bril
liancy and luster bedlmmed by those whet
t would use the horrors of war for such ends.
The president of this nation Is coinmanr
der-ln-chle/ the military nnd naval
forces. Durlnp thlH war ho was common-
'der-ln-chlcf , not only In name , but In fact.
The campaigns by land and sea wcro dU
reeled by him , nnd his constant and cease
less watch for the honor ot our nation and
the welfare , comfort nnd protection of our
hero soldiers and sailors reached from the
early hours of morn Into the beginning of
another day. His close contact and relation
with the departments of government have
been such that hlo fund of Information nnd
knowledge- details Is marvelous nnd
phenomenal. Ills sorrow for the dead , and
solicitude for the living , of these bravo and
courageous defenders of the rights otnuuir
kind , Is that of a father.
To the secretary of war , to the secretary
of the navy , to the major general command
ing thu nrtny , the hero nf Porto Rico ;
Miles , the hero of Santiago , Shatter , the
hero of Manila. Mcrrltt , to the gallant officers
ot the ami } ' and the navy nnd their Intrepid
men , belongs the honor and glory of the
brilliant victory In Cuba , I'orto Hlco and the
Philippines , unprecedented In all the world's
history. The nation will ever sing songs
of praise for the valor and gallantry 'nt
these sons of America. The braver } ' 'arid
couragcousness of our officers and focii as *
founded the world. ' '
Wo have among our fallen hcroea 'of the
navy a Paul Jones , a Perry , n Farragut and
n Porter , nnd now wo have tbose living
heroes Dewey , Sampson and Schley.
Whenever' the nation has wanted n man
for the hour , It has risen In Its wisdom
and found him. When the country called
for such men the people responded with
Washington , Lincoln , ' Grant nnd Garllcld.
In this struggle for human rights the emer
gency called for one to direct the nation , and
from seventy millions of people the masterful
ono -was selected. It was his hand that
guided us to victory. It was he who placed
the nation among the first powersof ; the
earth , the commander-ln-chlrf ot the army
nnd navy , the president * of the United
States , McKlnley.

Wu Ting Fong , the Chinese minister , was
given a reception no less cordial , and hln
happy allusion to the fact that while the
speakers who had preceded him were men
whoso dutyIt Is to prepare for war , It la
ha ! mission to try aud preserve peace , pro- ;
vokcd another approving demonstration.
Continuing , ho spoke briefly of the manner
In which the exposition had been brpugbt to
the attention of the Chinese government a
year ago , and declared that his trip . to
Omaha had proved a most enjoyable expe
rience. Ho had observed the vast ex
tent of this country and the richness of its
soil , but the greatest thing he had learned
was at the exposition. He expressed wonder
that a city only forty-five or flfty years old
had proved to bo ono of thn moat prosperous
cities he had over se n. "I have seen many
expositions , " he added , "but this la the best
I have ever seen , It shows 'thegreatness
bf your country and the energy and jierse-
vcranco of your people. As the representa
tive of the oldest empire In the world , I
greet you In Its name and I hope we ; will
Eomo lmo be able to receive you In my own
country. " In conclusion ho referred to the
pleasant relations that exist between this
couujry and China and expressed the ho'pe
that this pleasant condition may always'con-
tinue. ' '

The Korean minister1 whs ncx'f Introduced , '
but as he fs Unfamiliar with the , English
language he simply arose and bowed to the
audience. Hon. Gonzalo do Qucsaila , the
Cuban charge d'affaires , followed and spoke
In part as follows :
In the name of , the youngest nation In the
world , of the people who ewe their progress
to the greatest. It was my honor to salute
the reprewntatlves yesterday. Todny It Is
my ' aamo privilege to offer tribute ito that
sol'dlcr who went to my native land to auffor
not only the bullets of the enemy , but that
greater terror disease. We shall ever re
member that that sword was unsheathed for
the liberty of our country.
I remember when 1 for the first time
shook his hand. I remember when ho de
parted for my country. 1 have again greeted
him today. J find that for every pound of
llesh he has lost ho has gained many years
of Immortality ,
I thank the United States for Its. army
and navy. I could not leave this metropo
lis of the west without expressing ray
gratitude to the state Of Nebraska. Ib AvaB
a representative of this state who flrit'tpok '
the part of our oppressed country. It U ?
agreeable to mo to say that Cuba has never
had a better friend than Senator Allen of
Who was it that explained from one end
of this country to the other how our people ,
Ill-clad nnd ill-armed , were dying of starva
tion ? It was Senator Thurston. And when
the mighty army of thn American people
struck for our redemption Cuba learned to
love another Nebrasknn. It was he who put
In the shade the charge Dalnklavu , As
sistant Secretary ot War Melklejohn. His
heart Is as hie ; as the heart that should
beat In such a manly bosom. Never has
there been n hand outstretched from our
Island asking for a piece of bread that It
has not been filled.
Today Is devoted to i.cace the eagle Is at
rest. May It be so until there Is another
country to bo delivered from oppression.
War Is only to bo excused when the veins
of the natlcn are opened as they were at
Lexington , at Gettysburg or Santiago : The
Cubans have fought enough. There Is not
a flower in our land which docs not grow
from the tombs of our martyrs. But now a
new republic arises. The Cubans will prove
to the world that they have learned much
from the United States. The time Is coming
when fair Columbia will greet the republic
of Cuba , which will come to you with love
and affection and tenderness. And when I
bid you goodbye my volco chokes with grati
tude and all I can" say. is .thanks , thanks ,
to the great American nation.

The exercises clpsed wlth'fin address by
Senator Thurston , who said :
Wo are gathered here'ori1 a day dedicated
to civil government , 'the 'only guaranty of
liberty , personal safety or national i > ros-
perlty. Four written documents stand as
the guaranty of the rights of the people.
The ilrst was the Mucna Cbarta. Then his-
tcry moved on and the second was the
Declaration ot Independence , but It was In
complete. It only meant that people of ono
race , ono color , were free and Independent.
When Abraham Lincoln issued the Emanci
pation Proclamation he rounded out the con
stitutional guaranty. But It referred to the
people of our nation only. The United
States issued a declaration ot War against
Spain and UIOEO who voted for It have 110
apologies and no regrets. It was God's war.
The victories were God's victories. When
the American Hue went up the hill at
Santiago It meant * a-bupremer destiny for
the American people -thanr-we had ever an
ticipated in our lives bofore. It meant an
American flag on every public building in
the land , where It would , appeal to all the
world. Mother of Republics , her lullaby has
been sung over every crudlo In the world.
The ancients believed In an Arcadian realm.
This Is that land. The centuries have

Prof. Willis Moore , head of the Weather
bureau , experienced a small cyclone yes
terday morning1 in his room In the Mlllard
hotel. The way Mr. Moore tells about ) It Is
this :
"About 8 o'clock In the morning I heard
somebody moving around in the room. 1
was. awake , , though I had my eyes shut and
I distinctly felt the Intruder going through
my clothes. I thought It was my wife and
kept my eyes shut all the tighter for fear
she might make me get up If she thought
I was awake. When I finally did get up to
dress I discovered that the thief bad gotten
away with all the cash In my possession ,
amounting to $ C8. Strange to say It was
the second visitation , the same cyclone ha\
Ing struck mo to , the tune ot some $3 the
day 'before. "
Prof. Moore jnanaged to raise the wind ,
however , in time to get on his feet again
to catch the train last night that t'ook him
back to Washington ,

City Contention ,
Republican primaries held 1u the city
yesterday afternoon for delegates to a city
convention to be held nt Washington hall
tonight to nominate five candidates for
positions on the Hoard of Education , were
not devoid of Interest In localities. Flvo
of the wards had contests , and they suc-
cecded In drawing out an unusually largo
vote for such primaries. The light was gen-
orally against the continuance of the pres
ent .majority on the Uoard of 'Education ,
but the returns Indicate that the majority
faction won , nnd may be able tonight to
nominate a ticket , which , If elected , will
Increase the strength of that faction. Ot
the five retiring members of the board four ,
Jordan , Klowlt , Gratton and Dennis , were
class'ed with the majority element and
Irey with the minority. Jordan and Klowlt
have secured their ward delegations for re-
nomination , Gratton was defeated , nnd Den
nis was not a candidate for re-election.
Irey nlso has his ward delegation. The
Third and Fifth wards have no avowed
candidate , nnd the Sixth , Seventh , Eighth
nnd Ninth wards will present now men for
the positions.
"R. C. Jordan carried the First ward 2 to
1 and more over the opposition ticket ,
which was supposed to support R. K. Pax-
ton. Doth the parties carried on an encr-
, ge'tlo canvass and when the polls were
j closed 470 votes had been counted , the big
gest number over cast in a Board of Educa-
| tlou primary in the history of the ward.
I Of this number seventy-nine were , cast by
women. The straight Jordan ticket was
elected by a majority that hovered about
the 150 mark , the highest number cast for
an anti-Jordan delegate being 169 , and tha
lowest for the Jordan delegation 30C. The
fight was a strictly party affray , for a total
ot 410 straight tickets were cast , Jordan
getting 287 ot them. Despite ( ho warmth
of the contest there was no trouble about
the polls.
In the Second ward there was no contest.
Fifty votes were cast , and thn election was
without Incident. The delegation will sup
port Andrew Klowlt In the first ballots of
the convention. After that the delegates
say they will follow their Individual pref
The total vote cast In the Third ward was
fifteen , all colored. No Interest whatever
was manifested lu the election , nnd but
ono candidate tor delegate showed up at
the polls , ho being Frank Heacock.
In the Fourth and Fifth wnrds there were
no contests , and a small volt was cast In
each , there being little interest. The
Fourth Is for G. G. Irey for re-election , but
the Fifth has no candidate.
In the Sixth ward Dr. Frederick F. Teal
carried the day by a small plurality. There
was a warm contest nnd 481 votes were
cast , ot which the women contributed 12'J.
The latter largely supported the doctor.
The low man on the. winning ticket had a
majority of ono over the high man on thu
defeated ticket , and the highest majority
was only four.
The delegation from the Seventh ward
vu8 instructed for Charles S. Hnyward over
Fred J. Smith by a strong majority. A
heavy vote was registered all day , and 28fi
votes had been east when the polls closed.
Of these Hayward received 130 on straight
ballots to 64 of his opponents. The women
ot the ward felt little Interest in the issue
And vcro reprcspntgd by no votps , whU- ;
There was a rather one-tided but lively
fight in the Eighth ward , where C. E.
Black and J. 11. West each had
a delegation in the field. Black
won out in a canter , his delegation
receiving 211 straight ballots out of a total
vote of 417. The women participated quite
freely In the voting , nnd Black's victory was
In some measure duo to the activity of his
supporters in bringing .out the feminine
. There were three candidates In the Ninth ,
and Arthur M. Cowio was the winner , re
ceiving 138 votes , to 31 for E. G. McGll-
ton nnd 13 for O. P. Schrum. Of the 213
votes cast , the women supplied twenty-two ,
twelve of whom were colored.

The soldiers who did the most good were
these who kept well.
There wcro plenty of brave men who-were
of little use when the time come , because
they took less care ot their health than they
did of their musket.
Malaria and other fevers soon picked out
these men much more unerringly than the
enemy's sharpshooters.
Ono set of men went about keeping well
In a businesslike way. They took Palne's
celery compound at the first Indications of
Intestinal troubles , weakness , or when
fatigued and liable to fevers. They Ubcd
Paliie's celery compound to purify their
blocd and put their health on a firm basis
as soon as they made up their minds to
join the service.
Corporal Deckwlth thinks there was a
great deal of needless sickness among the
volunteers. At Chlckamuuga many of his
messmates followed his example and forti
fied themselves against disease by Palno's
celery compound , and not u man of them
had malaria or fever of any sort or spent a
day In the hospital.
Corporal Beckwith writes :
Camp Olympla , Sept. 17 , 1898.
Dear Sirs When I see so many ot my
poor comrades coming home'looklng'fit only ,
for a hospital cot , I give thanks to Palno'a
celery compound for the fact that I went
through my enlistment without any doctor's
medicine , and am today oven healthier than
when I went to Chlckanmuga. I firmly bo-

Co. M. First Vt. , Volunteer Infantry.
Secretary of War Stanton used to say that
the best definition of rest Is a change of
occupation. That may be .mo for ono In
health , but a sick person needs to have his
digestion regulated , his blood purlflid and
his nerves invigorated. Palne's'celi-ry compound -
pound brings the sort of rest the sick body
requires through sleep and nourishment.
Just as the great lawyer studies each ono
of his cases till lu > knows It on every side
and In every possible aspect , bo Professor
Edward E. Phclps , M. D. , LI , . D. , ot Dart
mouth College , the discoverer of Palnc'd
celery compound , had studied the nerves In
health nn.l disease , when well nourished
and when under-nourished , In men and
women and children years before ho looked
for the remedy. P.ilnc'a celery compound
was the outcome of his entire professional
life. A fitting memorial to a life of Jiard
study and close observation a remedy that
the world could not lose today , ut nny price !
Palno's celery compound calms and equal
izes nil the .iijrvous jlsauesjind.ljyluccB the
body to"takc on solid flesh. U purities thr
blood as Is so clearly shown by the rapid
clearing of the skin of all evidences of bad
humor : ! within. H Is au infallible relief for
salt rheum , eczema and all blood diseases.
