Morris Bheppard, member of congress
from the First Txaa district, a member of
the executive council, delivered an eloquent
iddress, in which he paid a high tribute
:o Omaha and the sovereign officers of

BUDAPESTH, Sept. 29.-The situation is
becoming clearer and evidence Is accummu
latlng that both the coalition loaders and
the king-emperor are earnestly endeavoring
to find a way out of the difficulty. State
ments have been Issued, emanating. It is
understood, directly from the entourage of
the klng-emperor, denying any Intention on
the part of the crown of wounding Hun
garian national susceptibilities, and an ar-
tide from the pen of Francis Kossuth will
will slat that h anil hi associates went
to Vienna a week ago with every peaceful
intent, but that they were not given an
opportunity to demonstrate to the klng
emperor that the coalition doea not con
template any obstinate adherence to its
demands and that the Hungarian nation
wishes to live at peace with Austria. These
are regarded as indications that the nego
tiations between the crown and the coali
tion leaders will be renewed, with some
hope of success.
It Is believed by well 'Informed persons
that General Baron Fejervary will be re
appointed premier, with the right to carry
on the elections on a platform calling for
universal suffrage and that by this means
a government majority will be secured In
the Hungarian Diet.
Quiet has been completely restored In
the city. There was no sign of disorder
The leaders and the klng-emperor realize
that some way out of the present situation
must be reached at an early date as other
wise the economic condition of Hungary
will become so bad that serious disturbances
cannot be avoided. If Indeed a real revolu
tion does not break out. The public ex
chequer Is almost empty owing to the Im
possibility of making any regular collection
, of taxes and the payment of the officials.
teachers and railroad employes Is becoming
more difficult. For these and other reasons,
thinking people on both sides realize that
a compromise must be reached or that one
sldemust give way altogether. A much
more optimistic feeling prevails tonight.
especially In view of the fact that public
excitement has been almost completely
Caaky la Called to Vienna.
The fact that Count Albln Czaky, presl
dent of the upper house of the Hungarian
Diet, has been summoned to an audience of
the klng-emperor next Saturday Is not con
sidered here as implying that tho count will
necessarily be Invited to form a cabinet. On
the contrary there is a disposition In many
quarters to believe that Baron FeJrvary
will be reappointed to the premiership. The
latter Is now understood to support the
contention that Hungary has the right to
establish Independent customs In Its ter
ritory. This has created a favorable Im
pression. The nationalist students are demanding
the expulsion from the university of all
students of socialistic tendencies. The lead
ers of the coalition majority and the news
papers are doing their utmost to calm the
political pas-nlons and prevent a clashing
of the factions during street demonstra
tions, warning the population that the
reactionaries would thereby be given a
pretext for oppressive action.
Count Apponyl, who Is Inclined to the
view that a solution of the Hungarian
crisis will be found suggests that the
former liberal premier, Koloman de Szell,
should be nominated by the klng-emperor
to negotiate with the coalition.
A tin box filled with powder Yf some
kind was found this morning under the
staircase of a hotel In which the coalition
leaders were meeting. The box, which Is
alleged to be an Infernal machine, was
taken to police headquarters for examina
tion. Stormy Meeting of Relohrath.
VIENNA, Sept. 29. There was a stormy
meeting today of the lower house of the
Relchrath which is discussing the govern
ment declaration policy, the people In the
galleries taking part In the uproar. Eventu
ally the session was suspended until the
galleries were closed. The premier, Baron
Gautch von Frankenthurn, explained his
declaration regarding the revision of the
basic laws of 1876. He said the revision
could only relate to the treatment of the
Joint affairs of the two halves of the mon
archy which from time to time must be
regulated according to analogous principles.
The premier expressed the conviction that
a new form of co-existence between the
two halves of the monarchy would eventu
ally be found on the condition that both
countries should retain the rights guaran
teed by the laws, and full liberty of de
clslon. He did not doubt the legitimate
Interests of the two halves of the man
archy would be safeguarded In such a man
ner that not only the two states but also
the monarchy as a whole would benefit
During the session there were frequent
conflicts between the socialists and the
anti-scmltcs which led to disturbances and
the clearing of the galleries,
FIGHT FOR TRADE IN ORIENT
Plana for Permanent American In
dustrial Exposition at
SAN FRANCISCO. Sept. . A permanent
Industrial commercial exhibit will soon be
established at Shanahal. China, by Baruch
Cerf of that place, who Is here perfecting
arrangements. It Is said by the promoters
that the exhibit will enhance American
commerce by properly Introducing and ad
vertising goods among the Chinese mer
chants. The plan has been endorsed by
the Department of Commerce and Labor
and Secretary of War Taft also approves
of the method of promoting trade with the
Orient. Concerning the projected exhibit
Mr. Taft said In an Interview prior to his
departure for Washington:
The project to establish a eomprehenrlve
exhibit of American goods at Shanghai Is
one that commands my rtearty commenda
tion. If It should be put through It will be,
so far as my Informaflon goes, the first In
telligent effort of American merchants to
go sfter the business of the Orient. Sit
uated a are American merchants, posses
sing, as we believe, the best output In the
world, they are nevertheless being hope
lessly outclassed In the quest for the Im
mense commerce of China and other Orien
tal countries. It Is high time something
was done after the order of our chambers
of commerce at home, so that the Oriental
merchants could have presented to them
tne Kino: or goods they want in tne way
they want them. That Is the only way cus
tomers are gained here and it Is the only
way they can be gained there. Americans
are not sending the right goods over there
and whet they do send Is not put In pack
ages calculated to attract the merchants.
Native dealers get no opportunity to in
spect our products. Anv such plan Sfc this
exhibit should be supplemented by a reor
ganized consular service, ana to mis ena
merchants should get after their congress
men and compel action on this most Im
portant subject. Our present equipment Is
pitifully Inadequate. Germany has ten times

Mr. Cerf announces that the proposed ex
hibit will be In operation before the close
of the Chinese new year in February. He
will first visit commercial bodies In the
east for the purpose of acquainting manu
