At Twentieth and Paul streets for two
hours yesterday afternoon nearly 15,000
people lived over again the days of the
pathfinder, the pioneer and- the settler.
Lived In the atmosphere of the plains, the
Wild West and the battle (round! Lived
with Buffalo Bill and his 600 spectacular
In the morning the veteran scout had led
bis cohorts through the principal streets
and thousands that lined the walks cheered
the sight. It was a Nebraskan of Nebraska
marshaling under him the people of many
lands and the crowd liked the Idea. It liked
the Nebraakan, too, and the ovation was
one that may live long in the colonel's
The parade occupied from 10 to 11 o'clock
nd at noon the crowd turned toward the
exhibition grounds. Borne had come mlk-s
to see the performance and Its chief teat
re, and these knew no better place to be
than at the ropes of the Immense arena.
Hundreds were from small surrounding
towns a ad they proposed to see all that
could be seen. ' Cody had fifty callers In
the first hours of the afternoon. ,' '
Swarm of Splendid Hid ere.
At I o'clock the seats were banked com
fortably full and Harry Clarence, the an
nouncer, took his signal banner and thunder
voice out to the center of tha arena and
started things. Five minutes later he was
lost sight of In a swarm of the world's best
riders. First had come the Indians in
squad of six, with Chief Iron Tall last.
They formed the front rank and In the suc
ceeding rank were the German cavalrymen.

tingent. In the third line were the Rough
Riders, the Mexicans and the cowboys. In
the fourth were the Cubans, the Tenth
cavalrymen and the Arab tumblers mounted.
In the fifth, western equestriennes and In
dian youths and squaws. In the sixth, the
Fifth and Sixth cavalrymen. When the
picture was drawn Colonel Cody himself
rode out to give it its finishing touch and
to acknowledge with graceful salute the
hearty applause that then reached its great
est volume. Promptly the performers sa
luted after him; then broke to race about
the arena In streams of yellow, red, green,
white and the minor shades of the cosmo
After this kaledloscoplo esemble had
faded, the acts of the bill followed with
dash and preclaion. In "the race of the
races," Cossack vied with Arab, Mexican
vied with Turk and past them all, lashing
furiously though they were, the dare-devil
cowboy flitted, triumphant. Following this
came an exhibition by two artillery squads,
who detached carriages, saluted, aimed,
fired, cleaned, coupled and were gone again
In the twinkling of an eye. It was real
cannonading o real that one man was
blown to pieces and another maimed la a
lona Real Western Tonehes.
Mules drsgged Into the arena two prairie
schooners, accompanied by settlers, their
families, a detachment of colored infantry,
several cowboys and Mexicans. The "greas
ers" started roplrg for amusement, the esl
ored soldiers to singing of the cherished
South, and the settlers' daughters and tour
cowboys to executing a lively equestrian
quadrille. The band struck u? "Ths Ar
kaneas Traveler" and back and forth the
ccuples galloped to the promptings of "first
eouple forward and the last fall back,1
"salute your pardners," "alaman left and
swing right on." The figures were exeeutel
with a rapidity and precision that aston
lshed, but In the midst of ths dance, just
as In the midst of dances years ago,. the
Indians came and society leaders turned
warriors, repulsing the Invaders and las
soing one of them for spoils. . After this
there were fancy riding by the puncher
and fancy roping by the Mexicans, the lattr
climaxing ' by the marvelous work of the
famous Vicente Orepaio.
In Mlmlo Warfare.
Meanwhile there had been erected behind
a temporary screen at the north end of the
arena a San Juan hill la miniature and In
diana posted there in Spanish dress. When
tha screen was drswn away ths aboriginal
don put out his scouts and detected, enter
log at the south end of the enclosure, a few
of the hated "Yankee pigs." Tha Yankee
pigs sighted the don and bis regiment a
about the same time and a minute later the
fierce charge was mads, with a Catling gun
adding to the uproar. It looked real and It
sounded real, but when It waa all over and
the curtain drawn again the observer who
hrppened to be In the right place (la th
"wings") saw the gallant Rough Riders and
brave colored cavalrymen reviving the fa!
len Spaniards with bltea of Battleax, and
be knew that peace agala prevailed; that
the battle bad been as bloodless as It was
fierce. WMle it raged the crowd waa given
a conception of what "A Hot Time" will do
fDr a Yankee marching to the front la a
camp icene there wire afforded other gltmp
ses of army life, and a laugh at the antics
of a pig that declined to be offered up after
it bid been brought onto the ground la a
private box, bonneted groteaquely.
When the arena waa - again clear the
troup of ten tumbling Arabs tumbled as no
man with a sensitive cerebrum would dare
tumble. Tbey leaped, flopped, vaulted and
turned over the rough ground as though
oa a level map, and human pyramids were
bullded with eight mea supported by one
the aame one who carried four the full

length cf the arena when the act closed. A
whirling dervish whirled on a small plat
form until other people's heads swam and
they cried to pull the devil off.

Johnnie Baker shot at all known angle
and In nearly his usual form which is
nough praise for any one man, as every
body knows what' Jonathan's "usual form"

been a marvel of horsemanship. They

Fcr the exhibition of the life saving corps
a spar was rslsed near the center of the
arena and over thla the lead weight was
shot with a rope attached. A jack tar
hauled In the line, and with It a hawser.
Then the breeches buoy, and in It Jackie
rode to "shore" and safety amidst the
cheers of the anxious.
After the western girls bad bad a horse
race that made even the oldtlmers feel a
little nervous about their safety, the cow
boys came on with their bucking terrors
and for five minutes everything and every
body were literally "In the air." A mod
era Alexander with the Macedonian name
of "Baldy" rode a modern Bucephalus that
adds to ita other devil-lnsptred accomplish
ments a Side-step that Jeffries would give
worlds to master; and a curly-haired cuss
with no folks and no fear of the future
stayed with a gray bunch of bone and mus
cle that bit the ground Just three times In
making the full length of the arena.
Next, Iron Tall led out bis braves for a
war dance, and the painted terpslchoreana
Jigged a minute to tom-tom obligate with
a very .diminutive redskin 5 years old aa the
central figure, gay la war bonnet and grease.
To spirited muslo the German, English
and colored cavalrymen appeared In saber
drll s, fencing matches on horseback and
fancy lanclag, concluding with a magnlft
cent cavalry charge. This was succeeded
by the "monkey drill" of the Sixth cavalry
boys, who rode one, two and three horses
over hurdles while standing erect, and then
put the mounts through their tricks.
Colonel Still Shooter.
Tha attack oa the Deadwood coach waa
accomplished with the usual spirit. Bolo
throwers gave a brief exhibition and thea
the colonel showed the crowd what an old
scout who wears bis glasses when be reads
can do with a repeating rifle while riding
swiftly over rough ground. Of the forty
balls thrown for blm by Johnnie Baker, also
mounted, b broke all but nine, and some
cf these were thrown so low that they were
on a level with the crowd before the marks
man could take a second shot. The blood
ier s hunt of the seven buffalo followed this
act. . .
Suddenly out from the Impenetrable re-
cesies of the pressing rooms and camp out
fit a lone woman dashed and after ber, on
steads as fleet as ber own, twenty bowling
savages, ens turned ana nrea, nut on tney
pressed and her escape seemed Impossible.
But cowboys beard and cowboys cams. After
them, with equally chivalrous Instinct, the
cavalrymen of all nations came also, and
tven the heavy artillery pieces. The Indians
tried to flee, but were hemmed In and not
a red escsped. When the dashing rescue
waa accomplished the crowd suddenly re
alised that Colonel Cody and bin entire
Ctmpany were posed again, bowing a fare
welland that the show was over.
Crown1 In the Evening.
At the night performance the crowd wss
scarcely leas than 20,000, packing the seats
and th ground space from them to the
outside arena rope that has been ustd ever
since a bucking horse leaped the first rope
at a little Ohio towa and caused a small
panic that precipitated part of the crowd
through the seats and resulted In one elderly

AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Agitation for Burlington Depot Has Been
PRESENT FACILITIES ARE OF LITTLE USE
Cltlsena Complain that They Must
Come to Omnhn In Order to Get
on an OntaroinK B. & HI.
Another effort Is being mkJe by the South
west Side Improvement club to induce the
Burlington road to locate a depot at Forty
fourth and Q streets. This project was
started some time ago, but, owing to the
absence from the olty of a number of Bur
lington railroad officials, the matter was
dropped. At a recent meeting of the club
it was decided to go ahead now and push
On of the prominent members of the
club raid last evening that the residents of
South Omaha were practically unanimous
In tbe desire to have a depot located at
Forty-fourth and Q streets. The Q street
car line now extends to within three' blocks
of the location of the proposed depot and It
la understood that the officers of the Omaha
Street Railway company have expressed
their , willingness to extend the line to
Forty-fourth street as soon as a depot is
erected and tralna'atop there. As It Is now
South Omsha people desiring to travel on
the Burlington are compelled to go to the
depot In Omaha and then ride right back
through South Omaha. This is considered
a waBte of time by many, besides being In
convenient. It Is true that there Is a small depot at
Thirty-sixth and L streets and four trains
a day stop there, but as transportation fa
cllltles Into tbe city are lacking It la used
by passengers but little. When this station
was first built and trains ordered stopped It
was the intention of these Interested to en
deavor to have the street car line extended
from the east end of the L street viaduct to
Tblrty-sUth street. This plan bad to be
abandoned, for tbe reason that an examine-'
tlcn showed that the L street viaduct Is
not strong enough to stand the strain of
carrying heavily loaded motor care. It Is
the intention of the residents of the south
western portion of the city to send a dele
gation to the city council before long to re
quest the co-operation of the city officials
la securing this much deal red Improvement.
RonnlnsT Short Already.
While the 1S02 levy has not been available
for warrants a month, yet some of the funds
sre already running low. A atatement ior
the benefit of tbe council and the mayor is
now being prepared by the city clerk. Till
will show the amount of tbe levy and the
balances in each fund. The police, Are and
street repair funds ertf already low. In the
fire furd there now remains scarcely enough
money to pay salaries and expenses of the
depattment for August and September. The
police fund Is a little better off, but the
ftreet repair fund has about gone glimmer
ing. There is some reason for this, as the
money available after this year's levy wss
made was used to take up the overlap in a
number of the departments.
As the overlap, which now amounts to
tfO.000, Is Increasing steadily every year
there seems to be but one wsy out of the
dilemma, and that Is to vcte bonds at the
fall election for tbe purpose of paying tbeae
old deb's. It la asserted that general in
debtedneas bonds can be aold at a premium
for i per cent. If this Is done, the finances
of ths city would be in good condition and
the funda now nearly depleted would be
rep'.ecl bed. While a large proportloc of the

JSo Intimation Yet. .
So far the member of tbe license com
mittee, Broderick, Welsh and Adklns, have
not Intimated In any manner as to what
their renort will be on the petition sent
to the mayor and council last Monday
night asking that saloons be opened on
Sunday. At the time Mayor Koutsky re
ferred the Detltlon to the license committee
It was thought by aome that a special meet
ing of tbe council might be called during
the' week for the purpose" of. disposing of
this matter. Many liquor dealers are of
the opinion that aome arrangements will
be made before the week is out lor tne
opening of the rear doors of saloons on
flundav. A llauor dealer said yesterday
that tbe fact that all of the seven saloon
keepers arrested for keeping open on Sun
day bad, without any trouble secured a
continuance of their cases until August
14, made It look as If tbe saloons would
be permitted to operate on Sunday before
long and then the cases now pending would

employe of the company passed through
the contingent of guard Inside the en

outeide. According to tbe strikers this
mad a total of tweaty-tbree for tho day,
fifteen having deserted during the fore
noon. The striker are maintaining tbelr
line of picket day and night and there I
no lack of vigilance at any time. Os tbe
other hand, tbe company' guard are a
wide-awake to tbelr duties and the rail
road's Interests. ,
Tbe nonunion forces Imported to supplant
th strikers ar still a trsnsltory lot. Th
official themselves do not deny that men
are coming apd going ylsbt along. How
ever they do not admit the striken, claim
that tbe defection are of such large pro
portion. Aside from the claim that
twenty-three quit the local bop yester
day strikers hold that North Platte lost
five the day before and that two men tent
from Portland, Ore., to Rawlins refused
to go to work upon their arrival.
The former shopmen 1 look for a whole
sale defection about- August 6, when the
thirty-day contract period will have ex
pired with most of tbe contingent now In
the shops. Som vital developments are
expected by torn of tbe men by that
time. However, it 1 sot a general belief
that this, will mark the. end of tbe strlk,
although some of tbe machinists' leaders
have expressed the . opinion that their
strike Would end about thst time, boldlng
that tbe company would be ready then to
offer concessions. ; Th popular opinion I
that th tte-up will lest much longer.
More Mea aa the Way.
The company' representatives said yes
terday that another largr contingent of
nonunion men would be la tbe city by
Saturday. .They are continuing to employ
men, holding that they are able to do so
without the least difficulty. Strikers main
tain' that by this means only does tbe
compsny bope to break tbe strike. Tbey
profess to believe that tbe Union Paclflo I
not particularly delr)ou of getting skilled
workmen, th prim object being to get
enough mea to fill the shop and make a
"showing." On the contrary the officials
persistently claim that the men they have.
the majority of them, are good mechanics.
In this connection It Is urged by tbe
strikers that the company Is hiring these

when the atrtk Is settled and the old mea
are taken back. . "They don't want good
