rant attention and received with great ap-
At the head of the banquet board , which
was beautifully decorated with a rich dls-

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

to the echo. Ills speech lu full follows :

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.
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. "

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
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 -
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
and back of 4he lodge. All were painted
yellow the sun color and decorated according
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. It
continued for four days and nights , during

which tlmo those who participated In it took
neither food nor sleep. The dancers offered
themselves as voluntary sacrifices. Some
painted themsalves yellow , meaning that
they intended to hold out to the cud.
Others covered their bodies with a white
phalk which signified 'that they would dance
as long as their strength would allow.
"With their arms hanging at their sides and
the eagle bone whistle In their months , they
circled round nnd round the lodge , keeping t
their eyes fliced on the Image. While the |

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.
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. Subject to
sl'ght modification , It will be the following :

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

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

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. Eighteen broad-gauge loads
of cement was necessary for the work , -100 j
sacks being In each car , which makes a j
total of 7.200 sacks used. As far ns fire pro
tection and the Homestako company Is con
cerned this will solve the water question
for a number of years to come.
