gave to the mayor an embossed parchment,
To The Ever Serene
And Right Honorable
France Edelweiss Moores,
.. Lord Mayor of Omaha,.
That the annual entry within your pre
cincts of the puissant descendants of the
House of Ak-Sar-Hen, having become an
established custom, the severe measures
heretofore taken to secure for our cohorts
undisputed control of the municipality are
no longer necessary.
That His Most Exalted Majesty,
King of Qulvera, Duke of the Seven Cities
of Cibola, requires the Great Golden Key
of the goodly city of Omaha be at once
placed within hla kceplnK that he may ue
aure hla suhlerts. irsfhered from all ports
of the realm.' to witness the coronation
ceremonies, of their safety and comfort.
By Command of the King,
Lord High Chamberlain.
Welcome by the Mayor.
At 1:15 the king himself arrived. The
lord mayor and the assembly stood with
bats removed while the former said:
Most Gracious and Beneficent King Ak-Sar-Ben
VIII.: Your loyal subjects have
gathered tonight frODV-iI quarters of (Jul
vera to taw capital of your realm to dd
homage to their 'beloved Sovereign.
When .your lUuktrleus. father ivlng Ak-Sar-Ben
VlV, of. sacred memory, visited
his capitol. one year ago, he tound his
kingdom prosperous and his people happy.
Today as Your Majesty enters In spienuld
state for the first time the city galea you
find the evidences of even greater prosper
ity apparent everywhere. The royal treas
uries are supplied, the royal granaries are
tilled most to bursting with choicest grain,
and the stalks of corn are groaning In the
fields under the.r heavy loads. The hum
of Industry and the whirl of commerce are
heard on every hand. Your Majesty's sub
jects were never so prosperous or so happy
Your faithful VU-e-Oerent, Theodore
Roosevelt, President of the United States,
was hastening hither with all speed to ren
der to Your Majesty an account of the way
in which he has performed the duties of
his vlce-gerency, and to bask In tho
dassling sunshine of Your Highness" favor,
but owing to serious accident he was
obliged to return to Washington, hla capi
tol city. We know, O King, that you
share In the sorrow felt by your loyal sub
jects on account of the absence of Presi
dent Roosevelt, who is serving Your Maj
esty and the people of Qulvera so faith
fully and so well.
As In past yeurs we have beheld the
glories attendant upon tho triumphal entry
of the Kings of the House of Ak-Sar-Ben
Into their capitol city, we have felt that
the limit of the Ingenuity of man to con
trive and of his abilty to execute had beun
reached In the preparation of those glitter
ing pageants, but tonight as w belio.d the
radiance of Your Majesty's presence and
the dazzling effulgence of Your Majesty s
train, we are bewildered, entranced, be
witched, until upon these floats of such
marvelous beauty we see in very truth our
old friends, the sprites and fairies of our
childhood days. We ran almost fancy thai
the Queen of the Fnlr.es has given to us
drink from the brimming , chalice of the
Elixir of Youth, and that we are all chil
dren once more. And when the day Is
gone and we return once more to our dally
avocations, we will be .younger' in spirit,
and better prepared for the performance
of life's duties by reason of the visions of
the Fairyland which we have had tonight.
And now, O gracious King, I welcome
rou to your Capitol and in token of our
loyal allegiance, I present to vou these
golden keys to the city gates, and- 1 join
with all your loving subjects In shouting
wiih one accoru, i.ons live King Ak-Sar-Ben
VIII., Long live the King!"
At the conclusion of the address the lord
mayor deposited the keys In the hands of
John Orant Pegg. he delegate from Da
homey, who marched down the slcpj and
over to the side of the king's chariot. There
a page of the monarch took the previous
burden and deposited It In the king's lsp.
The latter bowed acknowledgement, the
populace roared approval and the cere
mony of the night was at an end.
Throngs on the Streets.
Aa the king descended from his car he
asked: "Do all those people I saw tonight
belong In Qulvera?"
"Practically all." was the answer.
"That makes them my subjects, doesn't
"Well. Well! I must have subjects for
about all the predicates In the book. 8ome.

The king spoke Jestingly, but he did not
attempt, to conceal the pleasure he felt over
the Immensity of the welcoming host. Well

ever the pageant was to pass, there a -crowd
was, three tiers In front at the. edge of
the walk and two more back against the
buildings on tip-toes. At the principal
corners these rows multiplied and merged
Into on, compact, mass so dense that to
push through It was practically Impossible.
All the large bulldlag had their windows
filled snd the small ones bad to bear many
spectators on their roofs. The mammoth
stands In front of the city hall, the court
house and on another corner at the same
street Intersection had not aa empty Inch.
All th approaches to the court house were
crowded; the roof garden at the Her Grand
had only standing room to offer. snd the
lawns on Sixteenth street Just north of
Howard were literally black with people.
Whole families began camping In Jefferson
square as early as &30 In, the evening and
at many points along the route a single
rough board laid across two chairs fur
nished seats so good as to sell at a pre
mium, t ' . . .
Tonight at the castle he coronation of
the queen Is to be accomplished and the
Ak-Sar-Ben ball, chief of all the kingdom's
society events, Is to be given. Tomorrow
night the festivities tlose with a farewell
frolic on the caralval grounds.
THEME AND ITS WORKING OUT
Description ef the- Floats an Karnes
of Those Was Manned Them
"A hundred fires far flickering from the
Blazed o'er the general revels of the night.
The feast In honor of the guests returned.
To peace and pleasure, generously earned."
"Twas thus that King Ak-Sar-Ben. eighth
of the' name, was welcomed to Omaha on
his way to the royal csstle where he will
await - his coronation this evening, whan
the youth, strength and beauty of Qulvera
will assemble with bright auguries for his
Twenty floats accompanied the king upon
his entry. The subject for these floats was
determined upon by his royal highness and
his counselor soma time ago', when the fol
lowing took place, reported by the. royal
Late In the reign of AK-SAR-BEN VIII..
In a conversation holden with the sooth
sayers and wise men of hla Court, thus
said the mighty Samson: "I fear m
much, the times bo out .of Joint. Men rush
madly to and fro, the world Is filled with
columns of figures and nanus clutch fever
ishly at dollars. Ever and anon fall men
to their long sleep, overwearied with the
struggle. Yet the beautiful World wags on,
with room for all and plenty, and men be
brothers. Is not the life of a child, In
much, the wiser part? The dimpled fingers
are busied In wondrous ways, yet at even
tide comes rest Trustful hearts, unspot
ted from the world, find In simple things
abundanc Tender eyes and clear, see. In
very truth, elves, gnomes, sprites, fairies
and beautiful things we cannot grasp.
Therefore," continued he. "for one night I
will that all shall be children." Thus the
Knlghta of Ak-Sar-Ben present In the year
of Grace MCMII for their annual pageant,
"The Festival of Fairyland."
The Title Float. '
"By wells and rills In meadows green.
We nightly dance our heydey guise.
And to our fairy king and queen
We chaunt our moonlight minstrelsies."
Entwined with flowers, shimmering with
light, soft sprays of ferns and blossoms,
that fairies' lovs covering all; with horned
griffin looking from above, and over all the
glamour of tho lights, appeared the title
float, bearing the legend, "Festival of
Fairy-Land." The horsemen leading this
float were C. T. Johnson and H. T.
The King I The King!"
"Therein 'twas brilliant all and light,
A thronging scene of figures bright.
As when the setting sun haa given
Ten thousand hues to-summer even.
And from their tissue fancy frames
Aerial knights and fairy dames.
To him each lady's look was lent.
On him each, courtier's. ye was ,bent" (
For on the second float,' guarded by his
own especial sentinel Stood hut serene and
royal highness King Ak-Sar-Ben VIII;
two burning censers sent up Incense rare
before the tnroQa; the eagle bearing gar
lands of richest flowers led the way to the
pleasant retreat which stood at the end
of the Journey In the favorite palace of the
kng The whole ablaze with lights which
flashed back from the gleaming armor of
the knights, and from the golden throne,
while on the throne In state sat the augut-t
ruler tor whone coming the faithful knights
and squires have been preparing for months.
On this float were W. R. Adair as king;
Frank Pflcglng. 0. D. Harrin and William
Monaghan, while the knights, mounted
guarding the float were J. D. Weaver and H.
F. Robersoo. . -
Flower Queen's Daasjhter. j
"There fell a silvery, silken veil of light
Upon the upturned faces of a thousand
That grew In an enchanted garden
Where no winds dared to stir."
And well were roses strewed, for In the
third float reclined the ' flower queen's
daughter, while he fore her stood the brave
prince who had dared the dragon's grand
rrother, with her three heads, and all the
brood of dngons, to restore her to her
home. He had already made friends of the
kings of the fishes, of the eagles and the
foxes, and hud been glveri1 the wonderful
foal which was to carry himself and the
daughter of the queen of the flowers. Gar
lands of flowers everywhere rosos bright
and eglantine, entwined with glowing lights
upon this float, while a spraying fountain
sang a lullaby before the dais upon which
the maiden was seated that maiden who
as a wife was destined to spend half of her
days under the ground with, her mother and
absent from her husband, when the flowers
were not In bloom. On this float were
Julius Rosenzwelg, captain; W.' T. Johnson,
Ed Palmer and Harry Kelby, while the es
corting knights were F. B. Smith and S. H.

Q. Lund and Henry Wohlff.
"Sir Chanticleer then 'flapped hi wings
And lit on Pussy a head.
And standing thus, he aaw within
Th robber band, ha said."
For the eighth float told the story of the
donkey, th dog. th eat and the cock who
went to Bremen to make their fortuaea as
songsters and who routed a robber band
enrouts by the efficiency of their harmoni
ous song.' Th treatment of the float was
novel as well a thorough, th robbers fly

prince who had come out In the host which
was the friendly wolf transformed. Shells

Aubrey Totter, captain: F. O. Aulsbrook,
J. R. Hlsted and S. S. Caldwell, while the
guiding knights were E. F. Bralley and
"She was an Abyssinian maid
And on the dulcimer she played,
( Singing of Mount Abar'aJ."
But the dulcimer had given place to the
tambourine when she sang before All
Baba and his two friends, after the latter
had solved the mystery of the cave and
had mourned the brother whose cupidity
bad led to bis undoing In more senses than
one. None but the richest man In Bagdad
could have prepared such a conveyance as
that In which All Baba and bis escorts
followed the person of King Ak-Sar-Ben.

With Jewels bright she plalteth her shin
The waters dark have caught them, both

'TIs Lorelei's sonp that brought them
beneath the foaming wave."
There on the rock sat the Lorelei with
Homing robes and golden hair. Supported
by her father, the ancient River Rhine, she
lured the venturous boatman to his doom.
Wild dashed the choppy waves, whlly
scenes from Rhine land reflected . back a
hundred (amps. The boatman- was John
Drexel, the float being guarded by Mr. Ket
tering and Max Goldsmith.
The Polder and the Fly.
"Will you walk Into my parlor?" said the
spider to the fly:
" 'Tla the prettiest little parlor that ever
you did spy."
And surely it must have been a fairy
spider. Indeed, which spun the web, car
ried on peacock feathers, on the ninth
float. Files buzzed around Its treacherous
snare, but none had ventured in. Those
on this float were: D. J. O'Brien, captain;

George Toozer, the knightly escort consist

Aladdin and the Wonderful Lamp.
"By golden porches on the brim.
The costly doors. Hang open wide.
Cold-g.lttering through lamplight dim,
And broldered sofus on each side
In sooth it was a goodly time.
For it was in the golden prime
Of good Itaroun Alroschld."
And this was the story ' of Aladdin and
the wonderful lamp, which as natural as
life and several times as large, stood on the
front of the float. Thereon was the palace
which the wonder workers of the lamp had
made In a night for Aladdin and the daugh
ter of the emperor of China. But the wili
est dream of Harouu Alraschld and his
visitors was out-stripped by the execution
of the artist who contrived the float for tho
King of Qulvera, for nowhere was ever
seen such a blaze of glory and light as that
which surrounded Aladdin, when the per
sonnel of the tableau was: R. E. Lucas,
captain; Harry B. Davis, George Frost and
John Jacobs, with H. F. Dailey and W. B.
Taylor as accompanying knights.
The Man la the Moon.
'The man In the moon is beaming, love,
.The glow worm's lamp Is gleaming, love;
The best of all ways to lengthen your

And while the crowd was lengthening Its
holiday, in the manner beet approved by
Moore, here came the man In the moon.
Such a man as he was! Beaming with the
reflected brilliancy of a hundred lights.
'Twas not a lonesome man In the. moon, for
the sprites which love the moonlight-cheer
bad one of their number to keep him com
pany, while the stars, which twinkled
around the moou among the clouds which
were peopled with mortals of lesser rank,
shone like 'diamonds through the night.
The residents of this moon zone were
George W. Sues, captain; Alfred Mead. J.
M. Johnson. 8. J. Potter, I. 8. Hunter and
Frank Colvin, with Otto Slemson and J.
H. Jones as guardian knights.
Fairy of the Dawn.
"Now mounte ye, mounts ye brave gal
lants all, -
And draw your swords amain. ,
Death's heralds. Fame and Honor, call
Is to the field again."
Here rode the prince of a mighty race
who was milling for his father's sake to
dare the perils which surround the waters
of health In the Uad o fthe fairy, Dawn.
Two of his brother had been baffled In the
attempt which they made to pass the dragon
with th seven heads, when the youngest
and bravest started out to meet certain de

a witch who provided him with charmed
Instruments with which he beheaded th
seven-beaded dragon at one blow. Th
artist caught him Just ai the blow was to

Blndbad the Bailor.
"Mariner, mariner, furl your sails.
For her are the blissful downs and dales.
And the rainbow bangs on the poising
And sweet Is ths color of covs and cava.
And sweet shall your welcome be."
But It was not exactly a sweet welcome
which greeted th heroic traveler of our
youth, for the old man of the aea was on
his shoulder and be was deep down In
the valley where dead men' bones showed
th fat of tboas who had gone before. In
fact It was a rocky time for Slndbad. being

As he fra Ayr ae night did canter
When glimmering through the groaning
Kirk Alloway seemed In a bleese."
With Its "Weeze" of light and Its dsn'c
Ing goblins, ghosts and sprites with Auld
Nick ensconsed in the pulpit, here came
Tarn O'Phanter on his good mare Meg. She
was Just crossing the "key-stane of the
brig" and Nanny had caught her. 'Twas
Just before the reap where she lost her
"aln gray tale" at which the artist caught
her. Never had Kirk Alloway blazed so at
a dance of demons. Those who took part
on this float were: S. Reynolds, captain;
T. H. Mann, William Kennedy, G. W. Col
ling and H. Welde, while the escorts were
Frank L. Brown and Mr. Waal.
The Ml.ll Pond Sprite.
"The sleepy pool above the dam,
The pool hrnestti It never still.
The meal sacks tin the whitened floor.
The dark round of the dripping wheel."
Here waa told' the German story of the
mill-pond sprite, and the man who had
mad his vow to devote to her the first
born of his household In return for wealth.
The sprite, half-raising' from the water,
was calling for the-vletlm, who half In fear
and half In pleasure, stands at the door of
the mill. . Water pads and lilies added to
the realism of the scene. On th's float
John Bishop played the part of th victim,
standing alone, bat escorted by Hugo Mel
chlor and T. Vr. Blackburn.
The Kin of the Golden Hirer.
"Fair as the earliest beam of eastern light.
When first by the bewildered pilgrims
It s nil Ins upon the dreary brow of night
And silvers o'er . the torrent's foaming
Here was Illustrated the legend of th
King of the Golden River. On one side was
shown the cup In which the king was con
fined uutll released... by the melting of the
motal. There were the heartless brothers
turned to atone; their face showing be
neath the fountain,, and there also was the
merciful brother who carried water not to
the river, but to give It to famishing mor
tality, and found the golden water of the
river after a second Interview with the
king, who Stood upon the brink. On this
float were F. R.. Straight, captain; Al Pow
ell. F. W. Thorn and C. P. White, while
It was escorted by E. C. Hodder and Ed
"Alas for pleasure oa the sea
And sorrow on the shore
The Smile that blessed one lover's heart
Has broken many more."
The nineteenth float was that of the un
wIbs princess who trusted her eyes rather
than more mature Judgment. She was on
her way to Squirrel Island, with thoughts
of happiness to be had with tHe ambassador
of "the prince, regardless 'of the fairy's
curse too sootl'.to' be fulfilled. In greatest
state the recently released princess moved
In a fool's' paradise. This float was most
ornate. The dashing waves against the gal
ley's sides, the scintillating' lights, the
brilliant shells and flowers formed setting
mete for such a 'willful princess, who was
accompanied by the following suite: C. L.
Porter, captain ;" John Peterson, E. A.

Old t Woman' that Lived In Her Shoe.
"There was art oid-womtn who lived, in her

Who had so mftny children that she didn't
know" what to 'dio."
When the' float arrived, however, she had
apparently VnadV'ti her mind that It was
bedtime for little-"' ones, as she was emerg

traditional birch' to send them all. to bed.

GOOD NATURE AND GOOD ORDER
Only One Arrest Made During; Parade,
and ' that for Small
The extreme good nature and order of
the crowd is shown by the fact that but
a single arrest was made on the. street
prior to the passing of the parade or dur
ing Its progress. In this case an over
zealous advertiser had employed Matt Mur
ray, who la the watchman at the Trocadero,
to carry a sign In the procession. Murray's
arrest, followed. An hour after the pa
geantry had left the streets, only one theft
bad been reported to the police. This was
of a silver watch and chain valued at $15,
which were taken from the vest of Adolph
Jorgensen, who lives In the Salvation Army
hotel, while he was Intent on the parade.
The Council Bluffs cara were crowded
until a late hour .with the Iowa people who
had witnessed the parade. In order to
facilitate the exodus the cars did not follow
the usual course around the loop, but used
the Y at Twelfth aad Douglas streets.
FEW ACCIDENTS REPORTED
Large Crowds Handled Daring; the
Evening; Without Serious '
Injury to Anyone.
Only two street car accidents were re
ported last eight, notwithstanding the large
number of people on the streets. At 6
o'clock, on Sixteenth street, at its Inter
section with Douglas, an elderly woman
stepped on the rails directly In front of a
southbound car. She could hardly avoid
seeing the car., but seemed oblivious to Its
approach until the motorman vigorously
rang the bell and shouted. She then tried
to step back off the track, but It was too
late, and the feoxier threw her over back
ward in such a way that she would have
fallen head first under the wheels bad not
Detective 8. S. Drummy, who was on the
car, caught her by the arm and held her
up until tho car stopped, undoubtedly sav
ing her life. She wag not hurt, but was
much frightened. - As her friends took her
away, from the scene of the accident her

will hasten the end of the strike; that it
will show (ho miners that no third party,
not even the president of the United States,
can budge the operators from their posi
tion, and that once this Is realized the
strikers will weaken.
A prominent Individual coal operator said
today that he stood ready to guarantee that
the operators would agree to a sliding scale
basis of pay comprehending a 2 per cent
raise for every 10 cents advance on coal
above $4.60 f. o.b., the' present selling price.
If the miners' union would agree to put up
the bonds to indemnify the operators for
damages resulting from strikes caused by
the discharge of men for causes other than
connection with the union.
There was no disorder reported today and
no claims from either side as to gains or
losses to the working forces at th collieries.
All Interest Is centered in tomorrow's con
ference. It Is almost certain that John
Mullen, the nonunion man who was run
over by a trolley car at Sraithvllle last
night was stunned or killed and then placed
on the track.
Mane the Deputies.
MOUNT CARMEL, Pa., Oct. 2. Owing to

mine today, while another company was
taken to Shamokln on a special train to
prevent pickets from stopping nonunlnnlsts
from going to work at the Reading and
other collieries. The special trains were
placed at Reading and North Central rail

Train Was Loaded.
SCRANTON. Pa-. Ooct. 2. A crowd of
strikers at Throop tunlght were given a
rather unpleasant surprise party. They at
tacked a train going to the Pancoast col
liery, which they supposed contained non
unionists, but which. In fact, had aboard
two cofhpanles of soldiers. The train waa
quickly stopped, the soldiers piled out and
captured eight of the mob, all foreigners.
They were taken to this city and sent to

Trouble in Alabama.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Oct. 2. Twenty-four
hundred miners in the employ of the Ten
nessee Coal, Iron and Railroad company, on
orders from the executive board of the
United Mine Workers of America, district of
Alabama, suspended work today. The sus
pension Is on account of the refusal of the
operators to collect for the union the $1 per
week assessment, made on all union miners,
for the benefit of the anthracite striker in
It Is thought probable that the Blue Creek
and Plocton mines of the Tennessee com
pany also will be Involved If an adjustment

the company declined to withhold the as
