In less than forty-eight hours the great
exposition that has entertained and In
structed over 2.600,001) ) people will close Its
gates and Its beauties will disappear. Evi
dently this Is In the mind of each of the
thousands of vlsltorn that are Hocking to
have n departing view of Its mai vels. The
crowds seem poi ( Bseil by a feverish
anxiety to thoroughly exhaust every fea
ture of the bhow. Where the people
formerly wandered through the buildings ,
taking superficial glances at the exhibits ,
they now top and study them by the hour.
They seem to realize that thuy are enjoy
ing nn opportunity that win never occur
again and the myriad features of the booths
and buildings acquire additional Interest as
the time for their dissolution approaches.
"I would rather have my son spend nix
weeks In studying this exposition than to
send him to college , " said n prosperous '
looking farmer In the Government building '
yesterday , and he expressed a sentiment that |
ia In some degree reflected in the minds of
thousands of visitors. Appreciation of the |
Tast store of general knowledge that Is con-
\cycd by the exhibits Is becoming more gen
eral and a dozen busily employed note
books may bo seen now where scarcely one
wns In evidence a month ago. ISven the
old-timers , who have been frequent visitors
slnco the exposition opened are constantly
discovering hundreds of Interesting things
that have escaped their attention during
previous visits and they are as roud as anyone
ono In their expressions of regret that the
end Is to close at hand.
This disposition was particularly percep
tible yesterday. The crowd was not as big I
us on the preceding days and It was poa- j
Bible to got through the buildings without
being Jammed and prodded and elbowed i
until patience was exhausted. There seemed
to bo Just as many people In the buildings ,
but they weio not In such constant move
ment and they seemed contented to spend
hour after hour In persevering Inspection , | i
The prospects for the remaining two days | '
of the exposition are e-xcei'dlnply gratifying.
The admission will be 23 cents on both oc- | I
caslons nnd It Is believed that there will
bo a general anxiety on the part of the
people to have a final loundup of the show-
before It passes away forever. The hope
that the President's day attendance will
be exceeded on Omaha day is accentuated
by the reports of the railroads that thou
sands of people from points within 200
miles of Omaha are coming to participate
In the final jubilation. It Is also believed
that the population In the immediate
vicinity of Omaha will turn out In force.
Congressman Mercer has Just returned
from a thorough canvass of his district and
ho says that the farmers almost without
exception were planning to come to the ex
position Monday and bring their families.
The exercises at the Auditorium Monday
afternoon will be largely of a reminiscent
character and will consist of short speeches
by President Wattles and the members of
the executive committee. It Is expected
that at that time the officials will be able
to give the stockholders a fairly accurate
statement of the finances of the enterprise
and of the amount that will bo available to
be rebated on stock subscriptions. The ex
ercises will be followed by a banquet at the
cafe , which will bo quite an elaborate affair.

The discontent that has been somewhat
quietly manifested during the last few days
over the manner In which awards of pre
miums nt the Tranamlsslssln' ) ! Imposition
nro being made broke forth late yesterday
afternoon when two complaints against II.
II Hardt. assistant manager of the Depart
ment of Rxhlblts , charging him with forgery
were Illed before Justice of the Peace George
0 Cockroll.
The complainants are H. S. Cochran , rep
resenting the Scotleld , Shurmer & Teaglo
company nnd H. A. Searlr , rep
resenting the Monarch Manufacturing
compnnv. Accompanied by Thomas
Ulackburn , csq. , they called at Justice
Cockrcll's court yesterday afternoon
nnd after a brief Interview with Assistant
County Attorney Jeffries swore to the com
plaints mentioned. In both cases the charge
is based on n change alltgcd to have been
made In the Judges' awards. With the Sco-
Ill-Id. Shurmer tc Teagle company It ia said
that a silver diploma for excellence In ex
hibits of oils was originally awarded to the
flrm , but later changed by Hardt. In the
case of the Monarch Manufacturing com
pany a hlmllar charge Is made with respect
to a diploma for honorable mention for ex '
cellence of display of axle grease. Justice '
Coekrcll said that on account of the lateness 1
of the hour the hearing would bu post

Superintendent Conway of the governmen

hlblt on the da > after the fair closes. Lieu
tenant Ravancl. who represents the flsl
commission on the government boird , wll
be Irre Sunday and will have charge of thi
final d'spodol of the material.
During the lust f < w days Supcrintendcn
Con way lias fc en tealeced vrlla appll a
lions from people who want some of the
fish after the exposition closes. It Is more
than likely , however , that all that are not
shipped back to the government hatcheries
will be turned over to the Nebraska State
Fish commission. Commissioner May was
on the grounds yesterday and secured an un
derstanding to this effect that Lieutenant
Ravanel will probably approve. The car
of Che state commission will be brought to
Omaha Tuesday to transport such of the
fish as can be secured to the hatcheries at
South Dend.
Commissioner May Is especially delighted
with the prospect of securing the small
mouthed black bass , of which Superintendent
Conway haa about twenty-nvo In the aquar
iums. This fish Inhabits the running
streams and Is n decidedly gamier fish than
the large mouthed species , which Inclines
more largely to the ponds and other still
wators. Commissioner May has been trying
for aeveral years to secure a supply of tin-
small mouthed bass , but until this time hu
was unsuccessful. Several of the fish will be
old enough to breed next spring and he now
hopes to bo able to Install the fish In large
numbers In the various Nebraska streams
during the next few years.

George II. Rlncr , representing a Missouri
lumber company , has an exhibit of soft
plno lumber In the Agricultural building.
That much ho is sure of , but up to date

he is at in connection with the awards. His
fruitless quest In search of Information very

exhibitors have in extracting Information

After the awards were made notices were
supposed to bo sent to all exhibitors notify
ing them of the decision of the Jury nnd
giving them twenty-four hours in which to
appeal. Mr. Rlner received no notice , and
was absolutely unable to find out what action
had been taken In regard to his exhibit. Ho
called on Superintendent Hardt and asked
to BOO the record. Hewas told that this
was In the hands of Superintendent Taylor
In the Horticultural building. Ho traveled
across the grounds to the Horticulture
building , only to toe assured that the records
were in Superintendent Hardt's possession.
A second trip to thit official failed to bring
satisfaction. Hardt suggested that his no
tice would probably turn up eventually , but
Rlnor said that the time In which he could
file an appeal had already nearly expired and
ho wanted to know where he wns at. Ho
was finally ( put off until Mondiy and will
now have to accept the award whether It Is
satisfactory or not , as his right of appeal
lapsed at midnight.

The question of continuing the Trana-
mlsslsslppl Exposition next year was dis
cussed last evening at a meeting of aljout' '
thirty of the stockholders held In the council
chamber. No definite action was taken , It
being thought best to give the matter a Ht-1
tie more careful consideration nt a meeting
at which a larger representation could be
There was a division of opinion among the
stockholders as to wtiat should be the fate
of the exposition. Some of the/m thought
that the buildings should be sold as soon as ,
possible and the affairs of the company
wound 'up. President Baum of the Com-1
mercl-al club was In favor of trying It an
other year. Ho called attention to the fact
that there would not bo the obstacles In
the way of Its success that were met with
this time. P. K. Her was also in favor
of forming a now company ,
j The stockholders will meet again Tues
day evening at the same place , and It is
hoped that there will bo a larger at-
, tendance. They will discuss the question
more fully , and. If possible , decide on what
shall be done with tbo buildings.

Notwithstanding the near approach of the
close of the expoatlon the first exhibit In the
Horticultural building Is as fresh and in as
perfect condtlon as at any time during the
past season. Superintendent Taylor , who
has had general supervision over the exhibit
nnd who occupied a similar position at the
World's fair , states that the record made
hero has been astonishing , lie says that at
Chicago during the closing weeks of the fair
there , tin re was an Inclination among the
"xhihltors to allow their tables to grow bare

Just the reverse and each superlnteidcnt
has been as care-t.iklng during the past few-
days as they were during July and August.
All day yesterday the exhibitors In the
Horticultural building were hard at work

| that are expected today and tomorrow. They

LONDON , Oct. 29. The arrival of Major
Marchand at Khartoum on his way to Cairo ,
with the portion of his report which was
not finished when Captain Baratler left
Fashoda , Is regarded as a rift In the clouds
overhanging Anglo-French relations , for , In
pplto of the seml-olllclal denial Issued In
I'arls that orders were sent to the major
to go to Cairo , It is fully believed here that
the French officer would not bo on his way
to Cairo unless ho had received a hint to
that effect from the French government , who
considers that has leaving Fashoda will
take the sting out of the situation and prepare -
pare France for the eventual withdrawal
of the whole expedition , which now con
sists of seven officers and 120 inon.
The British vlow of this latest move Is
that the marquis of Salisbury and hlc min
isters are delighted to afford Major Mar
chand the facilities for reaching Cairo. Dut
they would hardly care to send him back
except in the capacity of a guest or sci
entific explorer. That Is to say , Franco
will first have to renounce its political
claims baked on Oils mission. ,
Voluntary Itetnrii Itenio e * Illlleulty.
Ill the meanwhile In the voluntary return - :
turn of Major Marchand the French minis
ter of foreign affairs , M. Delcasse , and the
government of Franco have got over a great
difficulty from a diplomatic amour pnpro
point of view. M. Delcasse had declared
that the French governmeat could not
do the Impossible that is , recall Major
Marchand. Therefore the latter's return has
enabled the French government to "save
Us face , " as the saying goes. It Is recog
nised that even If the trl-color of Franco
Is hauled down at Fashoda , the main sub
ject of dispute remains and may cause anx
ious moments before the Dahr-el-Gazal ques
tion Is settled , although there has been a
confident feeling for the last few days that
war would bo averted. The French cabinet
crisis Increases the fear , but In the list of
I probable ministers the Drltlsh newspapers
i see a holy of experienced and capable men
I who are able to lead Trench opinion. The
retention of M. Deleasso nt the head of
the ministry of foreign affairs , however ,
la not regarded favorably , as ho Is the father
of the Marchaud adventure.
An Instructive account of the origin of
the whole enterprise appears In an Impor
tant Paris paper , Le Journal , which says
the Marquis do Mores , the Anglo-Phobo
French explorer who was assassinated In
the Hinterland of Algeria , ically conceived
the crandloso clans , which bo submitted
to M. Delcasse , who fell In with his views ,
and dispatched Major Marchand to the upper
Nile , while De Mores stalled to the Santana
I with a hope to conquer , with the co-opern-
i tlon of Marchand , the province of Dahr-el-
! ) < Miiri'H * Plnii nf Campaign.
The plan of campaign Included the or-
ganlzallon of all the armed people opposed
i to Great Drltaln , and Included the cooperation
tion of the Kluillfa , whoso forces , led by
Frenchmen , would attack tbo Drltlsh and
the Khalifa , backed by the French ex-
ploieis. would thus Interpose a buffer be
tween Egypt and Central Africa , thereby
thwarting Drltlsh alms. Ie Mores and hla
party were massacred at the outset of their
journey but Marchand succeeded In carrying
out his part of the plan and there 13 reason
to believe the French government wishes ho
had no * done so.
The Eclair siys today : "Major Marchand

In order to play the game wo played against
the English we ought to have had a navy
capable of making a bravo show against the
English , Instead of which the fossils of our
Navy department have left us disarmed and
Incapable of lighting with honor. "
French newspapers seem to have llttlo
faith In Russia helping her ally in the present -
ent crisis , while Russian dispatches to the
Drltlsh papers affirm positively that the czar

DERLIN , Oct. 29. The official , relations
between Germany and Rus la-lmvo been
ruffled recently. This fnct , although denied
by the government organs , obtained from a
person In high authority and thejmost strik
ing proof of the statement Is that Count
Muravlcff has Just visited Parls/ahd Vienna
and ignored Derlin. The Dferlln papers
commented on the omission. f '
Other significant facts are thojalraost out

countries and Franco will jointlyiopposo the

The German newspaper correspondents
with Emperor William hlghly pralsed the
lavish hospitality of the sultan , of Turkey.
This hospitality , however , hafcrcatcd In

Placards have been posted on the mosques

the extraordinary sums spent on the em

) CAMBRIDGE , Mass. , Oct. 29. Prof.
Charles Ellott Nortoi. , In an address , ' before
| the Graduates' club of Harvard college ,
expressed sentlmen'ts which are likely to
1 arouse as much discussion among Harvard
men nnd others ns has followcd many of
I Prof. Norton's recent utterances. The
' speaker's subject was "Tho Now American. "
In the course of his remaiks ho reviewed
I the conditions which made this republic
' In many ways an experiment In the history
of democracies. In continuing he said :
No ono would ha\e thought the American
nation EO de\old of seiibe as to go to war In
the beginning of a hot reason In n tropical
climate and without any adequate prepara
tions to cairy that war to a successful Issue.
This war was a levelatlon. The old
America came to an end with a declaration
of The now America threw over many
of the old Ideals which have hern maln-
l talned by this old America and substituted
j for them those of the other nations of the
1 world. Wo must make up our minds as to
i the new conditions. We arc to be a military
nation. Moreover , all brutal tendencies
wii'l bo encouraged by the recognition of
force as the last appeal by the ccntial gov
ernment Itself. And , too , entanglements
with other nations must arise. Meanwhile
we have no leaders nnd hence we llnd our
selves with great responsibilities and no
guidance for the Ignorant , uninformed , In-
i flammable populace , anil wo are allowing
I o\cn this to carry us into thn most danger-
j ous situation. The whole system of gov
ernment was needed to be revised and re-
I organized. The pension list is a list of cor
ruption and has lowered the morals of the
ic'jlplciits , whlro it has Increased the na
tional Indebtedness.
Is there nothing to bo done ? The situa
tion is to bo met with courage and a de
termination to get the best out of a bad
case , We must dlvo'cc the government of
thrso dependencies from politics or else they
will become dens of corruption.
Prof. Norton advocated leaving the Philip
pines to the care of Spain.

John Dcllck , a long suffering husband , shot
and almost Instantly kli'led Albert Sargent
in the rear of hlr. residence at 1827 Nor h
Twenty-fourth street shortly after 11 o'clo'U
last night. Sargent had been Intimate with
Bellck'fi wife and last night drove to tin
house with an express wagon with the 11-
tcntlon of removing Mrs. Belick and all li > t
effects from beneath her husband's roof ,
llcllck Is under arrest on the charge ol
muider mid Sargent Is at the morgue.
Mrs. Dcllck , who Is detained at the sta
tion , takca all the blame upon herself. She
soys she mot Sargent ulx months ago , whin
ho was employed at a barber shop near In r
house , and became quite wclf acquainted
with him. Sargent finally got Into the habit
of stopping In during the absence of Hi lick ,
who Is a brleklajer , and finally proposed to
Mrs. Belick to leave her husband's roof.
Mis. Belick , In spite of the fact that slu >
had lived with her husband for eighteen
yearn and had three children , agreed to go
She says eho cared for him In such a way
that nothing else was of any consequence
Accordingly she left her husband about
September 15 and lived with Sargent for a
week in rooms on Sixteenth street , ovei
McGovern's barber shop. In which Sargetn
was employed. At the end of that time flli >
repented of her action and returned to hut
husband , who was wilting to receive her
She was unable to entirely sevev her re
Intlonshlp with the barber , however , and
saw him at frequent Intervals. She nlvvnvt
arranged the meetings so that the two men
did not meet until last Sunday night , when
Belick encountered the barber at Lund' ?
saloon across the street Just after Sargent
had left the Belick house. Sargent ha < '
been drinking and chairs and beer bottle-
were exchanged between the men before
they were separates ! . Last Tuesday noon
Mrs. Belick admits that she received Sat
gent at the house and that the door wa *
locked when her husband endeavored to get
In. She admitted him , however , and he ordered -
dored Sargent out doors , enforcing his de
mand with a fence picket and discoloring
Sargent's eyes. Sargent used vile language
nnd threatened to shoot Belick on sight
That night Belick bought a. thirty-eight
caliber bulldog revolver.
She 1'acKn Her Trunk.
Yesterday noon Mrs. Belick says she met
the barber by appolntmsnt at Sixteenth ami
Burt streets. It was one of many surli
meetings and the toarber once morn asked
her to leave tier husband. She agreed as
befoio and told Sargent to come at 11 o'clock
last night with an express wagon. Thun
she went homo and packed her trunk and
It was afterwards opened t > y detectives nnd
found to bo ready for removal. Her storv
from that point Is Identical with her bus
band's , who was seen later nt the pollco
Mrs. Belick says she was born In Omah i
forty years ago and Tias lived hero ever
since. Her name was formerly Mary Wc-1
bcrn and she has a number of relatives in
the city , ono of whom is Mrs. Flske , her
sister , living at Twenty-seventh and Frank-
lln streets. She says her husband has nl
ways treated her well and that she has
been very happy with her children , two
boys nnd a girl , aged between 10 and 1
years. Her only explanation of her coursu
In the affair Is that she loved Sargent bet
tor than oil the world beside.
Belick apoko of the shooting very calmly
nnd said he had bomo every possible Insult
to avoid the trouble. He had not suspected
anything Irregular until his wife left home
and remained away for a week. When sh' >
returned she confessed to him whore she had
been and he had forgiven her. Several times
slnco .she remained away from home for
considerable periods and ho had suspected
that she had been wi'h the barber. BellcK
described the encounter In the saloon on
Sunday night when Sargent had boasted bi
fore a number of men of his success. II
bald ho bore the Insult , but when It was rv
pcated he was aroused by the taunts of thn
men and struck the barber with n chair. On
Tuesday Belick said he returned to find hl
door locked and when he was finally ad
mitted ho met the barber , who once more-
Insulted and threatened him. Last night hi
said ho reproached his wife with being fals
to him and his children , as ho had discovered
that she had not been at her sister's house
In accordance with her excuse to him I1U
wife then admitted that she had seen Sar
gent and Intended going away with him.
Belick urged her to avoid the seamlal for the
sake of the children and added that If she
was really attached to the barber ho vvoul'i
make It possible for her to go to him quie'h
nnd help her to get a divorce. Mis. Ht-lUL
consented but asked that she bo allowed 'o
go out on Sargent's arrival nnd send him
away. This the husband would not allo *
and matters werr at this point when th
was a knock at the door.
DetallN of the ShootliiK.
Bollck went to n side door , commandln , '
n vlow of the kitchen entrance , ami looki-i
out , Sargent was standing at thn lattr
door and when ho saw Belick he IH said >
have put his hand upon his hip pocket and
threatened the bricklayer's life. Bcllck or
dered him away and when there wns no dlt-
poFltlon to obey he ran to a drawer and , re
turning with a revolver , ho fired and fol
lowed It up until the chambers were ex
h.iuxted. Sargent , who , It afterward devel
oped , was only armed with a long hunter e
Knife , turned at the first ohot and ran to
ward the rear gate , outtddo of which was
s'anding a horse and wagon. Brlltk pur
sued him and fired his last t > hot as Sargent
started to climb on board. The stricken
man wavered and fell with his foot on the
hub of the wheel. Ho died almost Instantly
with wounds In his head and back.
