of th civil war, raterana of th later wart
and member of the preoent military or
ganisation In Omaha, The exercise which
they listened to and participated In const!-
tuted the only Memorial service, except the
national salute fired at Forest Lawn oerae-

graves of the departed soldiers and sailors
at an earlier hour. Booaua of the weather
th parade and the rituallstio program at
Hanacom park wer abandoned.
It was th moat complete demoralisation
of Decoration day plana that aver ha been
experienced by th members of Grant,
Crook and Custer posts. Grand Army of the
Republic and of their relief corps, who
had the program In chare. At noon th
weather cleared some, but they could taka
no hop from this because the ground had
become already so saturated that It would

Aneembl Without Organisation.
It Is hard for th men who marched
through a hell of bullet and shells years
ago to forego the pleasure of marching
again now under th flag they preserved,
and so a few of them went In squads to the
church, and th fife and drum oorpe rolled
out a dash of th old-time musio, but be
yond this there was no parade and th
attendanoa at th church bore practically
no semblane of organisation. Such mem
bers of the Thurston and Millard Rifles and
Omaha Guards a attended went aa indi
viduals. Had the weather been what everyone had
hoped it would be, .this would hare been
one of the most impressive and Imposing
Memorial exercises in th history of Omaha,
the veterans believe, aa three companies
from Fort Crook would hav com and
there would hav bean other unusual fea
tures. The salute was fired at the specified time
by Comrades Allison and Doherty, how
aver, as that feature never Is neglected, no
matter what the weather be, and the
various committees commissioned to gar
land the sleeping places of the heros were
equally defiant of the elements, driving
to the various cemeteries in carriages
shortly after S o'clock and performing their
solemn duty while the heavens wept
The city's observance of the day was
general to the extent of half-masting Its
Hags, closing municipal, county and fed
eral offices, the banks and soma business
establishments. Practically all out-door
events wer postponed or cancelled.
SERVICES AT KOl'NTZH CHCRCH.
Impressive Ceremonies in Honor of
the Departed Heroes.
Touching simplicity marked the memorial
services for the soldier dead at Kountxe
church yesterday afternoon. The chill,
driving rain which had prevented the im
posing procession and the open-air exer
cises at Hanscom park failed to deter the
veterans and their wives, with many from
the present military organisations, from
The old guard was silent save when feel
ings were deeply wrought upon by tender
references to the flag. Then wer bursts
of applause so hearty and so spontaneous
that those of the younger generations who
observed wondered if they really knew
what devotion and patriotism mean. In
the pews the whitened heads and blue
coats' dignified the assembly, venerable
symbols of faith and courage that perse
vered. The dimmed eyes looked upon a tabla
upon which rested a cross of immortelles,
and a few vases and wreaths of flower.
To the left snd th right of the pulpit
rostrum and behind It was the flag, and
at each side were the post Inslgntas, with
gold letters on fields of blua. The arrange
ments had been made with little artifice,
but the very absence of elaboration helped
to raise a choking emotion in the veterans
as they sat with bowed heads and clasped
hands and listened to the singing and the
The familiar lines of the "Vacant Chair,"
as Intoned by a quartet of young men,
caused a furtive tear here and there, and
It seemed a very solemn period while Rev.
D. K. Tlndall made prayer. The quartet
sang the memorial hymn. Comrade R. M.
Eton declaimed the immortal words by
President Lincoln on th battlefield at Get
tysburg, and his voice seemed a large
sound in the pall of silence.
In a voice that quavered suspiciously at
times Comrade T. A. Crelgh, president ot
the burial corps, read the names of the
veterans who died since the preceding
Memorial day. There wer twenty-one ot

RESORTS HAVE CHILLY OPENING.
Programs Ar Somewhat Revised ea
Account of Weather.
Thanksgiving-day weather on May 30 did
not Inspire Joy In the breast of the amuse
ment resort manager. What had promised
to be auspicious openings for the three
chief recreation spots of the city Manawa,
Krug Park and Courtland Beach, each with
a new card of attractions for the crowds
seeking diversion, did not materialize.
Everything had been promised for yester
day afternoon, but the most sanguine of
th manager pathetically admitted
that the beat he could hope for
wa a sprinkling of idle ones whose
marrow Is Impervious to chill winds and
who do not mind the cold wet. At all of
the resorts the band concert and an
nounced program were carried out, how
ever, and none who braved th trip wa
disappointed. Th tret car company'
officer announced that they would keep
on eye on the cloud and the other on the
people and provide transportation service
adequate to th demands. The out door
sports and amusement, of necessity, had
to be crossed out ' of the afternoon'
schedules, but everything In order under
roof waa put through aa promised in

RURAL CARRIERS ORGANIZE
Form avn Association te Deal with
Matter that Affect Their
Th rural letter carrier of Douglas
county hav organized an association, meet
ing for that purpose at Benson yesterday.
The organization was effected by the elec
tion of the following officers: Frank H.
Cunningham of South Omaha, president;
John L. Yeager of Valley, vice president;
Charles W. Child of Benson, secretary, and
A. N. Totman of Benson, treasurer.
A speolal meeting of the organization I
called for June 20 at Benson. The purpose
of the organization 1 that the rural letter
carriers may get in closer touch with each
other and with the general postofflce de
partment for the better development of the
rural letter carrier service. The question of
better compensation will also be taken up,
as the compensation now paid. $600 per an
num, la not sufficient to maintain the car
riers and from two to four horses that they
must necessarily have to serve their routes
with any degree of efficiency.
The association will also take up the ques
tion of good roads and try to persuade
property owners over the lines which they
traverse to drain and grade the road so
that they may become at least passable
In weather like that at present prevailing.
Another purpose Is to enlist public senti
ment in the furtherance of more efficient
rural carrier service, and to convince the
public of the present Inadequacy of com
pensation for the carrier.
Th carrier of Lancaster county were to
meet at Lincoln last evening for organiza
tion, a wer the carrier of Gage county
for a similar purpose. The intention is to
enlist th Interest of the rural carrier all
over the state in these matter.

'Th soaking that won t com off Is th

ot the heavy rains that have softenei all
roadbeds and made it necessary for trains

The Rock Island probably Is the greitest
sufferer. It has been forced to abandon
Its service In Nebraska and to run only
stub trains in parts of Iowa, ao heavy
have been the rains along lta routes. The
worst floods on the Rock Island in thla
state seem to be In the vicinity of Fair

safe for use, but the Rock Island desires
to take no chances and In the Interest of
Its patrona has abandoned Its trains tem
Between Omaha and Denver.
Meanwhile all trains west from Omaha to
Denver are being sent out over the Union
Pacific main line, aa are also all of the
Union Pacific trains between Kansas City
and Denver. These trains are all going
from Omaha to Kansas City over the
Wabash, which is practically the only road
running through Kansas and Missouri
which is not tied up greatly by washouts
and soft tracks.
The Missouri Pacific is having great
difficulty, but has met with no accidents.
Its train due out of Omaha Friday night
at 10 o'clock was held aa a precautionary
measure until 4 yesterday morning. It
then left the city over the regular route,
but got no further than Union, when it
wa compelled to return and go down by

Overflow of the Missouri.
Passenger train No. 3 on the B. & M.,
due here from Kansas City, was nine
hours' late as a result of the tremendous
overflow of the Missouri river below St.
Joseph and In the vicinity of Forest City,
where the flood has been bad from the first,
It finally came in with all passengers safe.
No. 27, duo from St. Louis at 11:05 a. m.,
was annulled altogether, as the high waters
In places, chiefly between Hamburg, la.,

in and about Nebraska City the tracks
have all been repaired so that trains ar
running everywhere to the west, althougn

been made on bridges causes aome delay

A very unuaual thing occurred on the
Union Pacific. The train from Denver to
