"Tha biggest Improvement we have made
In the carnival this year," . said C. Ii.
Courtney, "Is a greater number of ahow
and amusemenia enterpi lat a on the King's
Highway. It has always been the custom
of the amuaenwnta committee to go after
about three times as many attractions aa
we could hope to get, and we usually have
enough, but thin time a greater percentage
of those solicited came than ever In-fore.
Just the other day we tvoked a regular
country circus, which will be quite a fea
ture In Itself.
"The reason for this Is that the show
people acatlered all over the country who
make a practlc of taking. In all the carni
vals and street falra are beginning to count
on Omaha aa one of the beat places for a
fall engagement. Thar baa never been a
good show on the Ak-Sar-Ben grounds that
haa fulled to muke a lot of money, and
there la no reason why even more than
we have this year ahould not come and
reap a harvest. People are on the grounds
to be amused and they are going to tuke
gladly every opportunity. Omaha la a good
show town ajiyway, and It Is particularly
ao during this season. In New York, in
the south and further west the show people
look toward the Ak-Sar-llon grounds aa
their best chance In October, and as a re
sult we are ready to offer to our patron
a better Itat of attractions this year than

"I have been on the board of g.vernore
for the last four yrara," said Archibald
I-ove, "and It seems to me that It geta
easier every year. The boosting la getting
leas and less necessary and more and more
effective. The board haa to work Just as
hard, but their work brings greater results
than when we tugan.
"The reason, of course. Is that the people
about the country, beginning to realise the
Interesting and attractive features of Ak-Sar-Pcn,
are helping rather than hanging
Luck to criticise. The Nebraska people are
beginning to accept the yearly carnival
aa a permanent thing, to be reckoned with
and counted upon aa one of the events of
the year of Interest both for business and
pleasure. We don't have to carry on a
campaign of education every year now aa
we used to. That glvea ua our time for
improvements and enterprise, and that'a
why things are rapidly growing more and
more successful. "
To Knkanrr tk Benefit.
"The success of the Ak-Sar-Ben carnival
and the benefit which Omaha merchants
derive from It ought to show us thut the
more we can make Omaha a convention
city the better off we will be," auid J. C.
Root. "I think that when the carnival Is
going on there ought to be other gatherings
here to tuke advantage of Jt. This year we
are going to have some of the volunteer
firemin In from surrounding territory I
understand, and there Is no good reason
why we shouldn't have a firemen's tourna
ment every year. We want aa many peo
ple of all kinds aa we can get. That's
the reuson we went to St. Joseph and got
General Morton to let us have 600 soldiers
for our daylight parade. Ws would have
brought back ,0iX) soldiers If we could have
"If Omaha Is going to inakeS a specialty
of conventions and similar gatherings as
other cltiee, such aa Mllmaukee haa done,
we can succeed only y going about It In
a businesslike way. There is no good rea
son why some representative organization
devoted to booming the city should not
have one or even two or three capable ad
vertisers who would travel around from
one city to another where conventlona are
meeting and make a determined and sys
tematic effort to get the convention for
this city. We ought to have some workers
of this kind and Omaha would be more
than repaid for keeping them."
Digger and Better Thaa Ever.
"It seems almost superfluous to add my
voice in the praise of Ak-8ar-Ben," said
Victor 0. Caldwell. "Ak-Sar-Ben Is an
established Institution which has withstood
all aorta of hardships, and today atands
stronger and more aggressive than ever
before. The aim of the board of govern
ors la not simply to keep Ak-ftar-Ben going
but to make It bigger and more attractive;
each year. That that aim Is accomplished
this year Is the belief of all who know what
has been done In the matter of putting on
the ahows, the parades, the ball and In
securing rates. We hear from all sides that
the Omaha fall festival surpasses any sim
ilar event In the oountry and It la our aim
at all times to see that the praise which la
so generously bestowed Is warranted."
Ball a Ilia- Feature.
As chairman of the Clndrella Ball com
mittee, which la to be thanked for giving
the Ak-8ar-Bea a new and attractive fea
ture for 1908, Joseph M. Cudaliy la more
Interested In that than In anything else,
but the spirit 'which characterises the ef
forts of Ak-Bar-Ben boosters seems to him
the most slgnlflcent phase of tha great
"Ak-Bar-Ben createa a spirit which la
bound to push Omaha to the front," said
Mr. Cudahy. "People from tha country
and from the cltlea In Iowa and Nebraska,
naturally turn their attention to Omaha
each year at the time of the carnival.
"The Monday night Initiations; tha work
lug of the different committees for the
parades; the Knights' drilling for the ball;
the heads of business houses working shoul
der to shoulder with those who hold minor
positions; affords an opportunity for all
of our buaineaa men, no matter what their
position may be, to meet on common ground
and to become acquainted. This broad
acquaintance wipes out petty Jealousies,
and cauaea all of us to pull together at
the same time In the same spirit for
"This year we have developed a new In
terest In Ak-Bar-Ben through the Cinder
ella ball. Heretofore, the children have
been spectators; this year they are par
ticipants. The spirit shown by them In
drilling alt through the hot summer
months, speaka well for the future. Begin
ning at that age, they will become Inocu

they will carry with them throughout their
