The Peace Jublleo Is over anil It has been
n magnificent success. More than 300,000
jieoplo have passed through the exposition
Rates and filled the White City with llfo
nnd human energy. Each day has been
marked by Imposing spectacles and cere
monies In which the most distinguished
Btatesmcn , soldiers and diplomats of this
nnd other nations have participated. These
have brought together such a concourse of
visitant as Omaha never saw before and
nil have united In declaring the Transmls-
elgslppl Exposition to be the greatest en
terprise of the age.
From a financial standpoint , also , the
record of the week Is moat satisfactory.
It Is yet Impossible to tell just how much
the exposition has profited. The collectors
hove been almost constantly employed In
handling the money received at the gates
nnd very little has been co-llcctod from the
concessions. As these tllil n tremendous
business all through the week largo amounts
remain duo the exposition which will be col
lected as rapidly as the department can
work out of the rush of business in which
It Is entangled. But Independently of these
outstanding accounts , which have not yet
been tabulated , the receipts of the week
have swelled the cash In bank to more than
jr.00,000 , as compared with about $135,000 at
the beginning of October. With good weather
nnd the low railroad rates that are assured
< lurlng the remainder of the month It Is be
lieved that this amount will easily bo In
creased by $100,000 before November 1.
The last dry of the Jublleo was devoted
entirely to < he children and there were
ihmisamU of them on the grounds. A large
proportion cf the membership of the public
urlioolb spent the Saturday holiday
In the pleasant sunshine anil among the
hcautlca of the exposition and as moan of
them were accompanied by their parents the
1'if-i' crc"'d " ' * ? proport'onatc-lj ' * larger than
on any day during the week. But although
the 'bulk of the Jublleo vUUors have
gene homo a surprising number of olit-ot
town people remain. Hundreds of family
parties drove In from the surrounding coun
try yesterday morning , attracted by the
beauty of the day , and the morning trains
brought In a largo number ot visitors from
nearby polnte | to spend a day or two at the
fair. While the early nTornlng crowd did not
indicate more than an ordinary attend
ance , after 0 o'clock the arrivals multi
plied nnd from then t < o noon the rush of
the last few days was very neirly dupli
cated. The street cars were again crowded
and the large proportion of children made
each load count heavily at the turnxtllcs.
There wns n continuous stream of arrivals
passing through each of the entrances and
the grounds filled up nt a rate that Indicated
that ! the Saturday record of 2C.007 , which
was made New York day , would bo broken ,
with a few thousands to spare.
The afternoon attendance was also com
paratively liberal. Hundreds of people
watted until after lunch before going to the
grounds In order to stay to the children's
concert on the Plaza and their presence
made the afternoon and evening as lively as
these of the bigger days of the week. At 2
o'clock there was a very pretty display of
Japanese fireworks on the Plaza for tha
benefit of the youthful visitors and as many
of the concessions gave them a reduced
rate the children made a thoroughly cn-
Joj'ublu day of \ \ .
Today the 25-cout rate will bo In force
during the afternoon and evening nnd the
usiial concert will help to entertain the
crowd. There will bo the usual sacred
, oncert by limes' band In the
Auditorium at 3 o'clock , but on this occa
sion the chorus will not participate. The
program will bo purely Instrumental and
will Include Schumann's "Dreams" by the

ent at Falmouth telegraphs tonight that most
t the passengers on the Mohegan were
merlcans returning home. Their experl-
nces were trrrlblc.
Interviewed Ernest Leeston Smith of Ore-
ion said : "I had just gone to dress for

Imbed up the mast before the ship went
own. The captain and I ran along the deck
ogethcr , both springing oft the sarno mo
ment Into the sea. As the vessel lurched
11 the passengers were washed over anil
mveloped In a wave. Being a strong swim
mer I forced my way through struggling hu
man beings in the \\uter , several ot whom
lutched me. After an hour I secured a
'aft ' , but was frequently washed off and ,
vcntually dashed against the rocks. I was
ashed off once more Into the sea and after
ihiK In the water three and a half hours
us thrown ashore , more dead than alive.
Phe screams of the drowning around wcro
eartrendtng. Many had no life belts. I
rled to help one woman on a raft , but
iould not reach her. She drowned before my
yes. " Mr. Smith fipoko In terms of praise
t the manner In. which the officers andrew
Frank NIchlin , steward , told an Interest-
ng story of the heroism of Miss Noble ot
ilaltlmorc : "I assisted her to don a life
belt , but she refuted to enter a lifeboat
until the others were rescued. She wns
ound supporting herself on a , plank two
hours afterwards. Even then she assisted
n the work of rescue. .The bowman of
.he lifeboat expressed the opinion that she
was the pluckiest woman ho ever saw. "
W. J. Bloomlngdalo of New York was ono
f the few left behind on the ship after
ho first rescue by the lifeboat. It was not
until 6 o'clock this morning when he came
n. Ho said : "I climbed up the mast wllii
cveral of .tho crew and remained there for
houro with extremedIClcuUy uutll rescued
by the llfcboitt. The only woman In the
'Igglng was the second stewardess , Mrs.
Mggott , who was similarly rescued after
lours ot exposure. "
Ulchard Kelly of Now York said : "I was
also In the rigging with the seamen. I
was right at the top of the mast. "
The experience of the Pemherton family
of Now York was extraordinary. Mr. and
Mrs. Pemberton and two young Rons wcro
raveling with a nurse. The whole were
saved by the father's coolness. When the
shin's boat came alongside he pasted them
ate the boat without disorder and jumped
In afterwards. They were all taken out by
the shore life boat.
Maud Itouudebouch , another saved , is an
oaera , singer going to New York to fill an
ngagement at the Metropolitan opera house.
Mrs. Grandln of New York was alive when
picked up but died In the rife boat.
Gray , steward , gives a graphic account.
When ho reached the companion way after
the collision the chief steward told him to
get life belts for the women. Ho got out
three. He met a man and woman and a
Ittle boy. The woman Implored him to save
her bov. Ho tied a life belt round him
twice and then wrapped a blanket round
him with holes for the arms. He then heard
the captain say : "This way , ladles. " Soon

having on board , so far as can be aacer
talncJ at present , fifty-nine passengers am
a crew of 115 officers and men. When tin
steamer was seen to be In distress life
boats put off from the shore and ever ;
effort possible was made to save the pas
oengers. The coast at this point li ex
tremely dangerous and has been the scrn
of numerous wrecks. The general oplnloi
at present Is that the machinery ot th
Mohegan became disabled during the heavj
easterly gale which was blowing and tha
It ran ashore and foundered. A number o
tugs which put out from this port to th' '
assistance of the Mobegan were compelled

As the day wore on further reports re
ceived here showed that forty-five survivors
of the Mohegan were landed at Port Hou-
stock , Cornwall , where the bodies ot five
dead persons have been received.
Then came the announcement that four
teen of the crew of the wrecked steamer had
been found alive on the rocks near the
scene of the disaster. One of the passengers
rescued by the Port Houstock lifeboat says
that all the passengers were dining when
the catastrophe occurred , though some of the
children and those who were seasick were
In their bunks. Suddenly the Mohegan struck
with a grating noise. At first the engineers
thought this wns caused by coal falling down
i the bunkers , but a second shock fol-
owed , and the vessel began to settle.
A coast guardsman who was on duty at
Coveract says he noticed the Mohegan was
ursulng a dangerous course.
William Moore , a seaman of the Mohegan ,
elonglng to London , was among the men
vho succeeded In reaching Port Houstock.
le said the vessel struck forward on the
larboard bow and sank head first , Its stern
Islng right up in the air. Moore sprang
verboard , and after swimming for a con-
Iderablc tlmo succeeded In reaching an

If she chooses. The recent events In Paris
Increase the possibility that she may dose
so , as the tendency Is stronger than ever
to seek respite from Internal troubles by
provoking an undoubtedly popular , though
disastrous , war with England.
The dispute will remain In a state of
suspended animation until the French gov
ernment receives Marchand's report , which
Is now on the way down the Nile In a
British boat , carried by one of Marchand's
officers. It Is expected to reach Cairo about
Tuesday , when It will be telegraphed by a
French agent to Paris. The latest advices
from Cairo state ( hat Marchand throws the
responsibility entirely ou his government
and that they do not suggest his recall , as
was previously reported.

LONDON. Oct. 15. The week opened with
an ominous rattling of sabers over Fashoda
and ended with the rumblings of a rcvolu-
lonary volcano in Paris.
The situation arising out of the question
between Great Britain and Franco as to the
Ight of occupying Fnshoda Is extremely
grave. Everything hinges on the nature of
ho report of Major Slarchand , the French
[ ommander at Fashoda , which Is now on the
way , thanks to the courtesy of the British
government in permitting ono of Marchand's
officers to use the British lines of commu
nication. The evacuation of Fashoda by the
Drench must , however , take place If war bo-
ween Great Britain Is to be averted , as the
marquis of Salisbury has nailed his colors
o the most and cannot recede from the po
sition he has taken up and Inwhich ho has
received the unanimous support of the
: ountry. The clear , strong speeches ot the lib
eral readers Lord Rosebery and Mr. Asqulth
coming at this critical moment were very
important In that they demonstrated to the
world that the liberal party Is solidly with
the government lu the stand the latter has
taken on the Soudan question.
Mnt-t Maintain Hrltuiii'n Hlghta.
The Sueakor , the organ of the liberal
party , refers plainly this week to the Im-
rjosslblllty of relinquishing the British
claims and points out that If it comes to war ,
It will not bo merely for Fashoda but for the
maintenance of Great Britain's place In the
wori'd , plus her undoubted rights.
The Sneaker adds : "If we abandoned our
claims. Englishmen would not only lose the
respect of others but would lose their own
Kclf-resncct and English statesmanship
would bo dragged In the mire. "
These emphatic declarations of the Eng
lish press and public men have already had
a certain Influence across the channel and
the Inspired statements of the French press
belittle the Importance of Fashoda and shift
the ground to an undefined claim upon the
province of Bahr-cl-Ghazal aud a port on
The mouthpiece of the French government
Is preparing France for the abandonment of
Fashoda by asserting that Major Marchand
overshot his goal and that Instead of going
to Fashoda ho ought to have stopped at the
confluence of the Bahr-el-Ghazal.
Many people scout the Idea that Franco
will be permitted to establish herself on the
Bahr-cl-Ghazal , which U described as "the
paying reef" of the Soudan. All the rest ol
the reconquered territory as far as Fashoda
U mostly desert ground which cannot be
made to pay for many years to come. But
the Bahr-el-Ghazal territory Is thickly popu
lated and has magnificent trade prospects.
During the governorshop of the late General
Gordon Bahr-cl-Ghazel had Immense exports
of Ivory , grain , beeswax , skins , etc , while
It contained w hole forests of arrowroot. Bo.
sides , the cotton grown there surpasses the
Frnnce IVuntit nuHHltt'n Help.
The Chauvinist Paris papers are denouncing -
nouncing Great Britain and are doing theli
vtmos' to cxlte Frwh foellng In the mat'
tor. Other French papers are making blttei
complaints of Russia's Inactivity.
The Gaulols declares the time has ar
rived for Russia to repay tha service whlcl
Franco lent her In the far east by helplnf
Franco against Great Britain , while thi
Patrle , after declaring Franco had been be
trayed by the Brlsson cabinet , demands thi
dispatch of an ambassador to King Menclll
of Abyssinia "for the purpose of sceklni
an alliance with his 200,000 valiant , faith'
ful warriors , who will co-oporato with ui
10 t'jO evr-nt of hostilities at Fashoda. "
The moderate thinking section of tbi
French press Is earnestly urging a peaci
arrangement of the affair. These paper ;
candidly admit 'that Franco Is no match fo
Great Britain In the event ot war.
There has been a great deal of talk hcri
about the possibility ot war with Franci
and various preparations upon the part o
the British government are reported to havi

LONDON. Oct. 15. ( Now York World
iablegram Special Tel eg mm. ) Ted Sloan
as upset the traditions of the English turf
11 more ways limn by winning repeated vlc-
orlcs at Newmarket on mounts that' the
ayers , and most of the patrons of the meet-
ng ring , regarded as having very slender
banco of victory.
The Newmarket meeting has always boon
nown as "Tho headquarters of English
aclng" and It has been patronUed by the
mnrtest of the racing set , which Includes
many of the greatest nunic.H In th # United
kingdom. But It Is certain that no other
iockey has received such attentions from
Istlugtilshed persons ns were showered
upon Sloan after his victory In the Middle
Sloan rode Lord William Beresford's Cal-
nan and won a rattling race In a form that
alned him. the npplauso of oven his com-
letltors. As ho returned to the weighing
com ho was surrounded by a number of
women whose names show the cnthuulasni
which the American Jockey has aroused by
his work ou this side. There were the
duchess ot Devonshire , Lady .William
Uerceford , Lady Randolph Churchill ,
.vho . was Miss Jcnnlo Jerome of New York ;
iady Curzon , the new vicereuc of India , and
Qeorglana , countess ot Dudley.
These five women , thu cream of the arls-
ocracy , shook Sloan's hand and congratu-
ntcd him upon his victory. He was pcr-
'ectly self-possessed nnd calmly courteous
liut not too affable. Sloan Is thoroughly
business like and does not look with favor
upon feminine society when there arc races
o bo won , even though It bo the most dlR-
.tngutshed possible. Ho extricated hlmsell
'rom ' the admiring group as soon as polite
ness would permit and disappeared In the
Sloan's head might easily be turned by
the attention he hna received hero this spa-
con If bo did not regard It as second
ary to thy business ot winning races. He
has received many handsome offers from
the owners of racing stablrs , and there nre
renewals of the minor that he may dr-
clde to remain on this Bldo _ for ooxt sea
son. The sporting papers continue to say
the most complimentary things about his
Sporting Life , commenting on Sloan's
wonderful display yesterday , Hays : "When
Caiman tired on the a¢ , Sloan's sharp
ness and fiklll wore asserted In u fashion that
only can bo described ns astonishing to ou-
lookertt and confounding to his rivals. "
The Sportsman nays : "Wo arc fairly con
vinced that with such a wind Eloau could
have non every other race with a mount
having the slightest pretension of a chance.
It was rucky for the other Jockeys that ho
bad only three mounts. "

NEW YORK , Oct. 15. A dispatch to tha
World from Havana says : It Is generally
believed that a ucrlnus breach has taken
place between the executive department ot
the Cuban republic and leaders of the mili
tary forces. Word has been received here
that General Wood at Santiago had received
through Colonel , Bay a communication from
President Macso advising that nothing b <
done by Americans that can In any way ha
construed as recognizing the Cuban govern
ment. Masse has been joined by his col
leagues in declaring that the time has ar
rived for disbanding the Cuban forces. Ha
advises all soldiers to return to their homes ,
there to resume labor as bciord thn Insur
rection. Ho gives tbo assurance that In so
doing they will serve their own best Inter
ests and will bo safe In tbo hands of the
Americans. This course will bo vigorously
combated by General Gomez. Ganeral Juan
Ducossc , ono of tbo closest advisers ot Gen
eral ( lomez , arrived In Havana tonight to
consult with opponents of President Mueto
and all those who favor a Cuban rcpubllo
and oppose further American Intervention.
General Ducasso declares that Gomez will
lead the Insurgents back Into the field be
