sale of liquor was stopped Just when the
crowds in the park were the largest and
pleasure seekers had to resort to red lem

the sale of liquor has continued by virtue
of the vote Issuing It, though It Is asserted
that the clerk did not actually Uwue a li
cense to Mr. Cole. Cole says, however,
that he has all along believed that he was
acting within the law and that he had a
legal right to sell liquor In the park.
'I don't have to run this park. I can
shut It up tomorrow 4f I want to and be
ahead of the game." said Mr. Krug. "It

' "I consider the serving of the Veareh war

of the Retail Merchants' association. "We
were not violating the law, those grocera
or butchers who drank beer did not know
that It was sold Illegally, If such was the
case, and there was no call whatever, as
far as I see, for the serving of the writ

Thomas Kilpatrhk & Go.
Grocers and butchers and their clerks,
together with their mothers, wives and
sweethearts, locked the doors of their
places of business yesterday and held an
all day picnic at Krug park with ideal
weather, the old rain hoodoo going to the
rear. Over 8,000 admissions were sold dur
ing the day and evening and the resort was
crowded with throngs of happy pleasuro
No special program of races and sports
was prepared by the association manage
ment for the amusement of the plcknlckers
aa In other years, and they were left free
to do as they pleased. The children rods
on the merry-go-round and the circle
swing, the young people took a ride on the
roller coaster and through the "mill," the
older people visited wonderland and amused
themselves aa children In the palace ot
crazy mirrors, and all witnessed the free
acts, ate Ice cream from conea and drank
red lemonade. It was one grand good time ;
from early In the forenoon until the last
car left at night and every picnicker had
a good time.
Finn's Greater Omaha band played a!l

applause given the music from .the first

showed that It wss appreciated. Ten
nurnbers were given by the band In each
concert, but those receiving the heartiest
applaute were the songs by the band's solo
ist. Mlas Lydla Pallansch. Miss Pallansch
has a remarkable voice and could be
heard above all the din of the crowd and
with the band accompaniment.
Haw Drr I Asa.
Most of the pioneers took along their din
ners, but the crowd was so great that the
little picnic groups could not get off In
secreted groups by themselves. In the
height of the festivities the arm of the law
fell with a heavy thud and the sale of the
beer and other drinks was shut off with
one fell swoop, much to the chagrin of
some of those who were having a little
better time In thlr way than others, but
the shadow of gloom did not last long.
A bunch of "good fellows" got together
and sang ' "How Dry I Am" and settled
themselves to eat ice cream and drink pop
and everything moved off aa before and tl e
picnic came to a close In a blase of glory.
II. Fischer, secretary of the Grocers and
Butchers' association, waa enthusiastic
over the picnic and declared that the at
tendance was the largest they had ever
"This is the fourteenth annual picnic of
our association, but we have broken all
records." said Secretary Fischer. "Eight
thousand admissions Is 'going some,' I
want to tell you, and It proves that It Is
best to patronise home industry. Hereto
fore It has generally been our custom to
go to some outside point, but we decided
this year that we had Just as good places
for a picnic right at home and so held
It here. It Is an' unqualified success, so
much so that we have decided to bold
another in the fall."
Replying to numerous inquiries as t
why the flaga on the big federal buildinr
were -not at half mast Wednesday a .
token of respect to the memory of forme
President Cleveland. Colonel Rurrnwi
custodian of the building said:,
"Under treasury department rules we
cannot half mast the flag for any person,
no matter how distinguished, or upon any
occasion without Instructions from the de
partment and these aro always wired from
Washington. There Is but ono exception
to this rule. The regulation regarding
The national ennlgn will be displayed at
half mast on Memorial Dav, Mav 3ft. on all
public buildings undfr the control of the
Treasury department, and at such times
and on such buildings as mav at anv time
be directed by executive cder.
The wisdom of the regulation becomes
apparent when we remember that endless
complications would ensue if half masting
the flags and draping the buildings were
left to the discretion of the custodians in
charge of the 0 odd federal buildings In
this country. The department properly
reserves the sole right to name the, oc
casion upon which these tributes of respect
shall be paid. The wire received by me
Wednesday night was as follows:

respect to the memory of the late Grover
Cleveland, former president of the UnlttJ
States. Beekman Winthrop, assistant sec
retary of the treasury.
A similar telegraph order was received
Thursday morning from the War depart
ment directing that the flags on the army
building at Omaha be displayed at half
staff for a period of thirty days.

There is a peculiar situation
here in Omaha
for a city of its size. Until the RALSTON project
was launched, no interest or set of interests had put
up any money or were making a united effort to se
cure manufacturing enterprises. No particular lo
cality was being pushed as a manufacturing district.
What effort was made was scattered and ineffective.
It certainly will be conceded that the strong organ

stockholders is and will do more for th3 growth of a
