uuti of the approval of me Kansaa-Ne-oraska
bill. Primitive tiaiure held full
sway over nearly ail this vast domain ami
tha onjy sounds that disturbed the primeval
solitude were the bellowing of countless
herds of buffalo and the warwhoop of the
Indiana as they fell upon their tribal ene
mies In tmrmulnnry contilct. It Is true that
an otss!onal white mnn had penetrated a
short distance Into tha transmlssouri coun
try, but he waa ao little iir evidence aa to
scarcely attract notice. The Lewla and
Clark expedition had marched up the west
bank of the Missouri as early as 14, but
had left scarcely a trace ef Its pilgrimage.
A trading .post had been established at
bellevue and there were possibly a few
oilier sparse settlements In close proximity
to the river, but the great expanse of the
territory Was practically Unexplored and
its resourcee were unknown. A permanent
settlement was not efTected In Omaha until
later In the same year, 1804.
Glaa of BoraetMasr to Govern.
If I have been predestinated to be gov
ernor of Nebraska 1 am very glad, Indeed,
that the honor did not fall upon me In
those early territorial daya. If one Is to be
governor It Is pleasant to have something
to govern. Jurisdiction over Indiana and
bufluloes, over shifting sandhills and un
dulating prairies, over solitude and va
cancy, would not be entirely to my liking.
To be sure there are some desirable fea
tures connected with executive Inactivity. I
am persuaded that the earlier governors
were largely relieved of the perplexities In
cident to trying to take care of a hundred
applicants lor appointment where there are
only half a doxen places to be filled, nnd
also that they were seldom, If ever, com
pelled to wrestle with Uie vexatious ques
tions affecting matters of requisition and
extradition, There was no formally con
stituted board of equalization and assess
ments before which contending Interests
oould present a formidable array of argu
ment and figure, well calculated to drive
the lucklesa members of said board into a
Condition of premature decrepitude. In
stead the tax authorities could levy tribute
With careless abandon upon sagebrush and
Cactus, upon the pioneer's clearing and
the trader's shack, with "none to molest
nor make afraid." But even these points
of advantage) appealing to me a they do
at the present time, are not sufficient to
cause me to wish that my administration
had occurred at the) earlier date,
Fifty years la not a fong time In the
life of a nation, but measured by results
it is a long lime in tne lire oi one or mesa
western states. Bo far aa our own state
la concerned that period covers everything
that we have ever attained to. everything
that we have te abow. I shall not enter
Ihto a comparative statement of our growth
or challenge your attention to an array of
tlgurea which will adequately ahow the ex
tent of our development and the wealth of
Our resources. Others will perhaps enter
upon this line of thought, and It la cer
tainly of great Interest.
I want to briefly direct your minds to one
potent renson why Nebraska hne aueceeded
so phenomenally during the brief period of
her statehood. The secret lies In the char
acter of her sltlaenshlp. Following the
erection of the territory came the border
strugg'e. which attracted to these lands aa
brave, devoted and loyal manhood aa ever
consecrated Its energy to a great cause.
These men championed the right for the
right's soke. No narrow question of tem
pi rnry expediency Influenced them. Their
mlnda'vwere flxirl upon the eternal princi
ple of Justice nnd their acts were In ac
cord with their belief. They also saw and
nnd appreciated the richness of Nebraska's
agricultural resources. The plow wm
brttight Into use, the virgin od was made
ready for the seed, fruit nnd shade trees
were planted nnd it was practically demon
strated that thla w a goodly land. At
the close of the civil war came another
numerous company of settlers, men who
had successfully defended their country
nnxinst treason's onslnught, men of sturdy
character, heroic virtues and Inured to all
the hardhlps which could possibly attend
pioneer life even In that early day. It Is
from such stock as thle that our present
Blood Will Tell.
It la an old saying that "blood will tell."
Aa a people wa have a heritage of the
beat ancestry, representing ihe energy, to
Intelligence, ilie thrift, the morality of the
homue oi New aingiand and the central
state, la It any wonder that our peopi
are proK.esalvef 1 It any wonder tnat
e havu here the lowest per cent of illit
eracy of any state in the unlonT la it
strange that the "desert na been made
to blossom aa tho rose" and that ti e earth
bus requittud toil with rich Increase?
Aa to the future, can ei naught but
promise of etlil greater thing, other
states muy have reaches the xenlth of
ihelr powers, but Nebraska la standing
upon the borders of a prosperity which by
comparison will make insigniilcant any
thing which it naa heretofore experienced,

next thing we hear of this young man the

some purpose or other; they got Into trouble
with the Pennsylvania Central railroad;
they were surrounded by A whole menagerie
of lawyers of the first rank down there;
but my Information I definite and official,

on thle young man and they found him
not wanting. (Applause).
Oh, I welcome you, sir. and I reflect. In

the unanimous sentiment snd tho hearty
feeling of this entire community. I now
have the honor to Introduce to you Henry

tha United States. (Prolonged applause).
(Seta Trcmendona Ovation.
Mr. Estabrook waa greeted with tre
mendous ovation when he arose to apeak.
Throughout his long address he held the
attention of hla auditors. Many of them
pronounced It one of the finest addressee
they had ever heard. The people for the
most part were too Intense upon the words
of tha speaker to break his chain of fancy
and loglo by applause, but when he paused
for a moment to wipe his brow they as
serted thflf approbation vigorously.
After he had finished Dr. Miller proposed
three cheers for Mr. Estabrook and they
were given in a manner to make the raftere
ring, then the band played a "Patrol,"
by innee, concluding with "The Btar
Spangled Bnnner" and the crowd filed out,
taking a long time because of Ita atae.
"There are aeveral things In Dr. Mlller'g
remarks that I resent," aald Mf. Esta
brook. "One Is that I we6f & brass collar
and the other I that I am out of a me

In the matter of tho seml-eentennlal

rule In the dispensing of weather for the
portion of the earth which fifty years
ago waa made Into the territory of Ne
braska, must hove got together somewhere
and sold; "Look at these old fe'lows; they
have lived In this country all these years
without undue complaint. Let them have
one day tor their parade when It shall not
be frecilng cold nor burning hot, and,
moreover, a day when there shall be
almost no wind at all to blow the dust
lh their eyes and turn their whlto. hair
to a dirty brown." Bo the day waa all that
oould be wished.
The parade waa two miles In length. At

Moatyn of the police force was forced to

band, a sergeant In fact, la a natlvo of
Cuba. The high school cadet band headed
the achool battalion and the three other
band were furnished by the Musical
union. Two of these were lead by Covalt
and Huater. Omaha people were flattered
that their local musician held civic pride
and patriotism so high they could lay
side their objections to the non-union gov
ernment bands and not cause a repetition
of the Chicago difference which made the
recent anniversary there almost muslcless.

ot assisting the dead and wounded. He said
he made a second trip to the depot plat
form with the conductor When they tried
to find a wire by which someone hod aald
the explosion had been caused. They had
not seen any sign of the wire.
The testimony of the other members of

by Dooner. t
Several wltnessea testified aa to the find
ing of the wire with whloh a revolver waa

The old aettlers gathered Inst night In

found the time between t and 11 o'clock
hardly equal to the telllns of all that hap
pened from the first of these years to the
last. Judge George B. Lake presided at
the reunion and the stake was filled with
gentlemen who did and who did not speak.
Those on the program were greeted with

General GrenMlle M. Dodge, who was
Introduced as a Nebraskan and a man or
national reputation, spoke on "The Pacific
Railroads." General Dodge Baid he had
made the first settlement In Nebraska on
the EJkhorn. He thanked Dr.. Miller for
having brought the old settlers together
and for much of the success of the Cele
bration. In talking of (he Union Pacific he
said It had been private enterprise which
had built the road and not the government.
The gehernl had crossed the Missouri In
1853 and had explored dut the Platte fiver
and found the most practical route for the
road was along the d parallel. From
Information gained from Mormons, trav
eler and Indiana It was decided wltat gen
eral direction" the road ahould take. In
18fli the .company had been organised In
Chicago. Ljhcoln had called the generul
cast for a consultation fcnd aald he strongly
desired to have the road built, but the
government Wea In Ho position to do It.
Ground had been broken 1ft 18(W and In W66
the foad finished to Fremont. During 1S6
surveying parties were sent to California
and the road finished to North Platte. Gen
eral Sherhlnn had marvelled at the prog
resa of the work. All the material used
had to be brought up the Missouri during
a few months eitch year. The company
gave eOrieral Dodge orders to proceed re
gardless of expense and track was laid
faster under the conditloh than hae ever
been done before or since, General Dodge
showed the recent changea made by the
Union Pacific were no discredit to the
original engineers, tor the Werk had coat
one-third the entire original coat and had
shortened the line and reduced the grade

JS. Rose water was Introduced as one
whose papers had alwaye been for Omaha.
Who went aa near aa humanly possible to
doing the things he set out to do and to
whom the auccesa of the aeml-centennlal
was largely due. Mr. Roaewater was given
the subject "Pioneer Journalism." Before
taking up the Journalists he added s remin
iscence of the Union Pacino, telling of a
meeting down on a sandbar for the formal
beginning of the road. George Francis
Train and Augustus Kountse made speeohes
and both trembled at the knees, it being
their first speeohes. During the meeting
a man In a red flannel shirt cams along

Mr. Roaewater found them on hla arrival,
were the Omaha Republican and the
Omaha Nebraakan, a copperhead Journal.
E. B. Taylor was editor of the Republican,
the pre waa run by hand and the edition
not more than 800 or 600. These It waa no
trouble to turn out and there was no swear
ing to circulation In those daya. Mr. Rosa
water came In touch with the pre through
collecting for the telegraph company, of
which he waa local manager, the Aaao
olated Preae iolla. Thee were $30 a month
and the papera considered the toll exor
bitant The papera now paid aometlmea aa
much aa 1330 a week. Mr. Roiewater, a
correspondent of the Cleveland Herald,
named the population aa 8.000. twice Ita
number, but he did not have to pay for
thla aa he did fer the awelllng ot the cen
sus to 140,000 in later years. The Associated
Press tolls go by the population and The
Bee and World-Herald had paid during
ten yeara (50,000 flne for thle exaggeration.
Mr. Roaewater told how the Omaha Tri
bune wae started. Dr. Miller, who had
come la control of the democratic organ,
waa Jolting the opposition te strongly that
retaliation became neceaaary. An editor
from the coat waa cent for, but when the
day of publication arrived he had not come
and Mr. Roaewater, rather than have the
paper not appear wrote the editorial snd
other matter for seven days until the editor
turned up. .
Lawyer and UgUlaten.
Judge J. M. Woolworth talked ably oa
the subject, "Bench and Bar of the 'ftOe."
He firat told of the many examplea of
greatness In the colonial bar. He eald the
best lawyers a country produced came from
new communities, which was true of Ne
braeka, territory. This waa not to Bay the
first lawyers were better than the present
but the present did not eurpas the early
legal men. He told of the first Judges, of
Chief Justice Furguaon. who organised the
courts; of AuguBt Hall and William Pitt
Kellogg and of Judge Little, the firat Clin
ton Brlgga and O. P. Maaon and closed
with a glowing tribute to A. J. Poppleton.
"Early Leglalature and Leglslatora" was
the subject of Judge George W. Doane. Ho

Hon. James E. Boyd, Introduced ae the
first and only democrtlc governor OI Ne
braska to:d of "'Pioneering on the Flalne."
Perhaps his most Interesting statement was
that during his business residence hfe
Fort Kearney he had three limes td sehd
Mrs. Boyd to Omaha for tear of th Hos
tile Indiana. The thing which the gov

he came to It, a town of 600 people, was
that there were no old people, its told

He drew considerable applsuse tof his Im
passioned tribute to the greatness ef Lin

ture and predicted Very great population
and wealth for the United States.
Henry W. Tate was Invited to talk shop
snd did so very pleasantly, hla remarks
being on "Karly Bnnka and Bankers." In
beginning he eliminated the Wild-Cat bank
which were not banks at all and attl but
one of which had gone down In srt early
panic. The currency question was then
as now a prominent question, although the
conditions were different. , Seven actual
banks were In existence i the territorial
days In IS), ahd these had all been con
tinued under one form or another to the
present day. This, Mr. Yates pointed out,
showed the early banker Were the bank
ers ot the present day. It Commented on
the very small capital of tnoee early men,
probably not more than $200,000 for all,
while the sahie Institution how had $30,-

mented on the lateness of the hour. He
believed aa Impression a man had carried
around with him for forty yeara could be
of little Interest to a tired audience st 11
o'clock. He, however, told how he had
chanced to enter when the early legisla
ture was In seasion and had been so struck,
with the argument of a young man there,
he hod predloted If the young man re
malhed true to ths atate he would leave
