The great editor from tbo City of Churches was given a. bcarty welcome to tbo Exposition City and his speech on "Tho Press" wan listened to with rant attention and received with great ap- At the head of the banquet board , which was beautifully decorated with a rich dls- vlay of roses , sat General Charles F. Man- Carson. president of the Omaha club and loastmastcr of the evening. On his right was seated the guest of honor , St. Clalr McKolway , and on his left another gucBt of honor. Colonel Henry Wattcrson. Dr. George L. Miller tat next to Mr. McKclway and Judge Wakeley was seated next to Colonel Wattcrson. Those who occupied places about the board were : Joseph II. Mlllard , Benjamin Wood , Casper E. Yost , Luther Drake. Edward Ilosowatcr , E. M. Ilartlctt , .Tohn E. Wilbur , Frank Hamilton , James E. Kelby. William Wallace , W. H. McCord , George P. Didwell , Charles J. Greene , Gen eral John C. Cowin , Frank Murphy , Thomas Kllpatrlck , John K. Ilrady , William Morris and J. J. Dickey. In Queuing the pobt-prandlal exercises General Mandcrson greeted the guests In felicitous language and remarked that he found himself strangely surrounded by those who bad been of the opposite political party In years past and who , while they were most charming gentlemen , now found them selves without any political convictions whatever. He called the first toast of the evening , "Our Ouest with length of days may he have strength and happiness. " Miller on McICelttny. Dr. George L. Miller responded to this toast and was heartily greeted , as ho arose to speak. Ho said bo esteemed It a rare honor to respond to the toast and extend tbo greetings of Omaha to ono of the most marked men In the country. Ho related how St. Clalr McKelway had worked up In the ranks of journalism from an elllcioni young reporter , "always an honorable po sition on any leading paper , " to bo ono ol the greatest editors of the United States , Ho spoke of McKclway as tbo Washington correspondent of the Now York Tribune and of his later connection with the Brooklyn Eagle. Ho continued : "His presence hen tonight Is a compliment to the city and tc ourselves. Ho stands today with anothei brilliant star In the field of Journalism , the distinguished editor who sits on the left There Is no cloud on the names of McKel- way and Wattcrson. " "No silver lining to those clouds , cither , ' interjected Colonel Wattreson , and the ban queters showed their appreciation of th < Bound money pledge by prolonged applaus. The guest of the evening was then callec upon to respond to this toast : "Tho Press- In Peace , a Leader ; In War , an Auxiliary. ' Ho Bpoko slowly and distinctly , with fln < voice and referred only occasionally to hlr headline notes. Ho was frequently Inter rupted with applause and when ho had tin Ishcd the assemblage arose and cheered hln to the echo. Ills speech lu full follows : "My Friends : It Is natural you shoul ask a newspaper man to .talk about th press.

They use tjpcs as their telling and talking me dium Just as others use the forum or the stump or the pulpit or the corner grocei * or the cross roads as their channels for news and views. KraillcM .Medium of 1'xiirrftnloti. "This wish of people to know , to learn , to get on , to Improve , to progress , as we say , finds In newspapers its readiest medium. The medium may be crude , rough 01 .n other ways Imperfect , but It is a medium for all ! that and It serves a useful purpose. Very likely tbo medium will be ns good or as bad ! as the not crudity or culture of the com- 1 munlty which will be fairly expressed by the conductors' of newspapers themselves , for they are only men behind paper masks aud while the marks are convenient they little conceal and do not at all change the cbarac- [ tcrs of the men. A community generally has the newspapers Us dcscives to have for It makes them though tne newspapers may think they make It. "Th" fact follows from this that the local newspaper is the first , the provincial newt- paper the second and tlia national newspaper the third nnd the cosmopolitan newspaper i the fourth In an asccti-Jcnlng series. That I Is relatively true. Moro true Is the fact that a great newspaper in a degree reflects all these characteristics , which but express the I relative wants nnd Interests of mankind. 1 That which Is molt Impjrtaiit and attractive I to us is what concerns ourselvot aud our I neighbors and the way lu which we and they affect ono nnoier. ! Homo news and | homo views ii.-o 'be backbone of every newspaper. state , national and \vorld mat ters play an .iffr p.a.-t. They are attractive and Important but they are nut solinl or vivid as homj facts , homo rlghta and home needs. You c.ia be sure that other foIKs are minding thulr business. K you do no : mind your own It will not hu attended to by others or If uth'ra attend to It , amid your neglect , they will mal.o n nicos of it. "Another fact follows : Our homo life will bo better attended to , If wo learn how other folk , nearby or remote , arc attend ing to theirs. Hence the educational ef fect of news. Hcnco Its tendency to make men feel Interested In nnd related to ono another. Hcnco the Increased fellowship of connected states , which makes for na tionality and 'the Increased amity between separated states which makes for peace and for brotherhood. Thus the newspaper which bottoms Itself on homo news will thereon raise a superstructure- Intelli gence and comment which will every day exhibit the contributions of the world to the common stock of human Interests nnd of human problems. This may seem to be a florid generalization or an Idealized pic ture of the newspaper , but It correctly places It In the classification of philosophy and In the grouping of history. Some papers realize this function or suggest it more than others , but all of them Indicate It tea a degree , and dose whether they appre ciate the fact or not. They may bo con sciously only filling or telling their little local fields , but they are felt powers in the general economy of the universe. The farmers at Concord Bridge knew that they "fired a shot. " They only wanted to hit Gage's troops. They did not know their shot was "heard round the world. " But It was , though the fact was not recorded , to their Immortality , until a poet saw the re- latlon of their action to the scheme and theme of liberty the earth around aud the ages through. A newspaper , large or small , la a perpetual exposition of vigorous and versatile life. It has been called the his tory of the. world for a day. The term Is very ambitious , and can never be moro than partly true. It represents an aspiration rather than nn achievement , but tt Is In a sense a picture , a promise and a prophecy. HEARD ABOUT TOWN. On the corner of a busy street in the shopping district a morning or two ago a small crowd gathered on the sidewalk around , an object which they hid entirely from view. Passersby , out of curiosity , paused and peered over the shoulders ol people in the group to learn what It was that attracted their attention. This Is whal they saw. A dark complexloned Itallar lad , apparently about 11 years old , bare Hi legged and hatless , clad In garments worr and soiled , stood by the side ot a chile two or three years his Junior. The youngei boy sat on the sidewalk with a tclegrapt polo for a back rest. He , too , was sbabbll } dressed , but unlike his companion , ho wai fair of face , resembling those Saxon chlldrei who sat In the Roman forum ono day i good many centuries ago , of whom Pop < Gregory , who happened to be passing , said referring to their tlaxen hair and Ugh blue eyes , "They are not Angles but angels.1 Between the llttlo fellow's knees was a ha and into this hat people were tossing pen nles and some times dimes , for now yoi saw that the child's eyes were closed and hi face were that expression of patience am id resignation that always maflcs the count enanccs ot the blind. 111 From the women In the crowd there wer many remarks ot pity that to such a prctt ; child should befall such a fate. The men too , wore conscious ot the Injustice ot i providence which made dark th6 eyes of child for whom the power of sight woul have been such a blessing , and to compensate pensato for nature's neglect they were prodl gal with small change. From tlmo to time , when an opening 1 the crowd allowed the opportunity , th older boy glanced apprehensively up an down the street , now and then transferrln the contributions from his companion's hate to his own trousers pocket. Suddenly b gave the llttlo lad's coat sleeve a tug , too him by the arm and hurriedly led hli through an opening In the crowd. Then th people were mystified to see the llttl golden-haired chap scampering down th street close on the heals ot the Italia . boy , who set a pretty swift pace. The pal dodged vehicles and horses with an alacrlt that was surprising and disappeared Inl the nearest alley. The remark of a police ed man who came up just then and stood fc a mlnuto on the corner watching the urcbli scampering for a place of concealment , o tly plained the situation. "Those kids , " t nd said , "make me moro trouble than ar . Ism old rounders on the beat , and that lltt ono can take oft a blind boy to perfei sm tlon. " sma My Umlirln Xot In UUIrc . lat LIVERPOOL.

RELIGIOUS CEREMONY IS REPRODUCED All < ltc AVnrU oil ( lie Toiler * nnd Dvoornilonn In I'erfornird ! > > Sonic Mfinlicr of ( he Kionii Trlbo. At the cast cud ot the Indian village on the exposition grounds , surrounded by a canvas eight feet high , Is a new exhibit which hag been added to the features ot the Indian congress during the last week. It Is an historical reproduction In minia ture of the Ktowa camp circle as It was pitched at Medicine. Lodge , Kan.i In 1SCT , ou the occasion of the last great gatherIng - Ing of that trlbo before the signing of. the treaty which placed them , together with the Comanchcs , Apaches , Cheycnncs and Ara- pahocs , on government reservations and ended forever their free life of the plains by making them wards of Uncle Sam. < At that time , which was In June the season of the blooming of the cotton wood tree the Klowas had met to celebrate their great annual ceremonial which Is known as the sun dance , the medicine dance , or the torture dance. The trlbo consisted , according to the re ports ot the commissioners , of about 1,600 people. They were encamped In a circle nearly a mile In diameter , each of the 250 tepees being set with precise exactness fac ing tbo center of the ring and at a uni form distance from those on cither side , Opened to the I'tibllv. The miniature reproduction of this camp was opened to the public for the first time yesterday. It belongs to the Smithsonian Institute , and has been reproduced through the efforts of Prof. James Mooney , the gov ernment ethnological expert , who has been engaged on this particular work for the last five years. Each part of the exhibit , even to the whittling of the tepee poles , has been prepared by members of the Klowa tribe. Each tepco has been made by some member of the family who occu pied tha original. This Is In accordance with the Indian custom which allows no ono to Imitate In any way tbo property of another family. Hence the miniature circle becomes ot ethnological value to those Interested In the study of what may be called Indian heraldry. The camp as arranged by Prof. Mooncy Is eighty feet In diameter and consists of eighty tepees. Ho has selected for this ex hibit only those which ho thought would Drove of the greatest Interest , both for their uniqueness of design and the historical as sociations connected with them. They are tot in the same relative positions to each other and the rest of the circle as in the original camp. And in front of each hung on a tripod Is the shield emblematic of the family to which It belongs. ' Sluriilflcniice of Special Tcpccn. Passing In at the entrance to the circle , which In the reproduction Is on the south , but always faced the cast In the original oncamnments , the first tepco on the left Is that of the family of the man whose task is was to provide the buffalo , the skin of which was used In the dance. When the day was set for the propitiatory ceremony he was obliged to go without food until he bad captured his animal. The ofllco of "buffalo man" was hereditary and was considered a high honor as evidenced by the fact that his tcpeo was allotted the first place in the circle. The second was the "warrior tepee. " Its decorations consisted ot numerous pictures representing battles In which the famous warriors of the trlbo bad acbleved distinc tion. Each was painted by the warrior him self and the occasion was ono of feasting and sports. In the miniature tcpeo these pictures have been reproduced by ono man. A little further around the circle Is the tepee belonging to the only surviving signer of the peace treaty. It Is decorated with black and white circles. Near this Is the "porcupine" tepee , the property of the pres ent chief of the tribe. Almost opposite the entrance Is the "turtle tepee. " made by ono of the famous medi cine men ot the tribe. Next to this was the homo of a member of the tribe who claimed to understand the language of owls. One ot the birds wrapped In a red cloth hangs' to a polo before the door. Following the circle around one passes several tepees decorated with rude pictures ot water monsters , horse tracks , eagles and .rainbows. Then comes the "scalp tepee" hung with a collection of scalp locks taken from enemies In battle. Day and night are represented on the opposite sides ot the next with fantastic representations ot the sun and stars. Ilnlii Tciicc In Shown. Conspicuous among tbo shields on the right of the entrance Is ono that Is painted with representations of rain drops , from which the name "rain tcpeo" Is given to tbo home ot the owner. The Klowa Apaches , an associated tribe of the Klowas , were assigned a place In the clrclo adjoining the entrance on the right band side. Their chief , "White Man , " oc cupied a tepee decorated with the arms of a bear , which was his guardian. In front of the door stood tbo pabon , a. shaft of wood wrapped with a beaver skin. This he carried Into battle nnd drove Into the ground to fasten himself to the spot where he took his stand. The designs on the tepees arc , most of them , of so ancient an origin that the pres ent members ot the trlbo cannot remember how they originated. In general they grew out ot what the original designer claimed \vero visions. On dying , tbo warrior who hold what was called the "tepeo right" dele gated it to some member of bis family. When It happened that for any reason ho . tailed In this , tbo design , or coat of arms , 1 as It may bo called , became extinct , as no y ono was allowed to revive It. 0 ' In the center of the circle stood the "raed- . Icino lodge" built for the celebration of the I dance whoso celebration called all of the members of the trlbo together once a year. This was built ot cotton wood branches In terwoven on seventeen poles standing In a clrclo around the center poles seven paces apart. Hanging to the center polo was the medicine image , which was kept hid In a bag under strict surveillance ot the priests during the year , and only brought out on the annual Juno festival. U was the head and shoulders of a man carved out of stone , and ix grotesquely painted. Above the Image hung 10 a strip of buffalo skin cut from a point a 10m little In. front of the ears to the tall. This o- was wrapped around a branch ot cottonwood - oes es wood , An arbor of cottonwood boughs , JO which formed the secret chamber of the s- priests during the dance , completed the in terior of tha lodge. Shield * Coiixi'ornloil to the Sun. The shields , all ot which were consecrated to the sun , were arranged In rows In front ud and back of 4he lodge. All were painted hoe yellow the sun color and decorated according o- cording to designs revealed In visions. Those facing tbo entrance were ranged In two lines ot seven and five respectively. Behind the lodge were nine others hung on poles , and two on tripods , painted black and white. 33 These stood before the tepee , which was oc cupied by the priests in preparing the cere he mony. icr The dance for which these elaborate prep rd. arations were made was a propttlary sacrl- , flee to tbo sun god or medicine Image.

The miniature reproduction ot the Klowa clrclo exhlbts with a minuteness of detail all the features of the original. The fact that It has been constructed by the Indians them selves adds to the interest that would natur ally attach Itself to a subject about which so few are well Informed. It will remain on the Indian grounds during the remainder of the exposition season as a part ot the government exhibit , and will then be return ed to the Smithsonian Institute. TOPICS FOR A DAY OF REST Of the many educational and religious conferences that have chosen Omaha , as their meeting place during the last summer tt is reasonable to tjupposo that none will esert a wider Influence upon this community than the Liberal Congress of Religion , whoso annual convention win bo held at the First Congregational church October 18 to 23. This organization , which Is now five years old. waa created In answer to a call for closer fellowship among men holding widely different beliefs regarding the forms ot re ligion. Realizing that much of the preju dice existing among churchmen Is due to an utter Ignorance of ono another's doc trines tt was deemed wise to establish a platform on which all reverent souls , the orthodox and the heterodox , might present their own views of religious matters and thus enlighten ono another. H was on this basis that the Worrd's I'arllament of Reli gions was established and In the Eamo spirit the Liberal Congress has gene forward with the work during the last five years. It must bo distinctly understood that the liberal congress Is in no sense a sectarian organization. In Its ranks nro orthodox and liberal advocates and equal opportunity Is given to all for the free and full expres sion of religious sentiment. A glance at the names of the local committee for the con gress reveals the fact that besides laymen there are represented In It by their pastors Methodist. Episcopalian , Jewish , Unitarian and Unlversarist churches. At the sessions of the congress everybody will bo welcome and It Is hoped that few will fall to avail themselves of so rare an opportunity to hear the views of the various churches on vital questions , expounded by experts and recognized authorities. The outlined program which follows shows that a number ot eminent men from all parts of the country will participate In the de liberations of the congress.

LEAD CITY , S. D. , Oct. 15. ( Special. ) The now reservoir Is situated on the apex of ono of the highest points in the immedi ate vicinity of Lead City and above the Ellison hoist , and is now rapidly nearlng completion , about thirty days moro being required before It will be ready to hold water. The work Is being done under the super vision of Sam Illackstone , superintendent ot the company's water system , with George Holler as foreman , who has under him thirty men working steady. All the Iron work has been completed and supply and discharge pipes laid. On the bottom of the reservoir a six-Inch floor of cement Is laid firmly Im bedding the iron stays , and from which the side and end walls go up , The walls are built of a composition of five parts stone crushed to the size of eggs , two and , a halt parts sand and one part Portland cement tslxed as It Is used. At the bottom tbo walla start four and a half feet In width which narrow down to three and a half at the top , n Wooden guides are used as tha wall Is laid t I and keep in position until the cement lias set. The dimensions of this mammoth tank are as follows : Depth , twenty feet by 155 feet long , and sixty-live feet wide , and when completed will have a capacity of 1.250.000 gallons , one-half of which wllf always bo kept In reserve for flro purposes. The way that this can bo managed will bo the end of ono of the discharge pipes for regular use will stand up from the bottom ol the tank half way so that when the water gets below that point it will naturally cut off the supply. The other one , the valve of which will be controlled at the Ellison hoist and Ufced for flro purposes only will be sup plied directly from the bottom. The supply Pipe Is heavy sixtcen-Iuch steel piping and is laid for a distance ot about 7,000 feet up Whltewood gulch , where It then merges Into a Ilurao on up to the source of supply about seven miles from the city , where all the water needed Is obtained and In all seasons. As stated above there are two of the dis charge pipes of the twelve-Inch class , only ono to be used at a time. The ono for flro purposes goes to the head of M1H street and down then In a six-Inch pipe which merges into the regular city mains. At the bank corner a pressure of 120 pounds to the Inch will bo obtained. The supply pipe for the company's use will go down by the Ellison hoist and crosses the gulch adjoining the D. C. depot and then up again to the Old Abe hoist for distribution. The top of the reservoir Is covered with Iron . work to bo covered with a six-Inch layer , of cement , as In the walls , the woodwork will bo torn away and the whole banked up | and covered with dirt. An engine and min iature hoist arc used to hoist the wheelbar row loads of material on and Into the works j and by the same power a No. 1 Gates | crusher Is run.
