The stars in their courses are working
tor the success of the Ak-Sar-Ben festival
thla year. Saturday afternoon the chil
dren of the kingdom and Suturday night
the men and women nave unmistakable
token that during the coming wjek they
will enthuse, boost and glorify as never
And auch ft week as Is to come! A
trip across the continent will be well worth
while to take part In the entertainment
and the Jollification; and there are those
now in Omaha who have made the trip.
Some are Omaha folks, who were on the
two coasts, and others have never yet had
the rich experience they are about to gain.
So that those who are not thoroughly
posted may be put In possession of the
salient facts, let us give he king's own
definition of the name by which his own
royal festival Is known:
"Ak-Bar-Ben Is the name of this great
state reversed, but It Is more than that.
Ak (Syrian) means the head of a house
hold; Bar (Arabic) means the household
Itself, typified by the knights who have the
festival In charge; Ben (Hebraic) signifies
the brothers In the household."
And It Is the brotherly, pure-all-together
spirit which has made this Omaha insti
tution what It Is. During all the years
nf its exlstetnce, since 1895. this spirit has
never been lacking. In the Initiatory work
and the preparatory labors, continuing
through many months each year, good fel
lowship and mutual helpfulness has been
the rule, as fully evidenced by the re
markable success which has attended the
(all festival each year.
Schedule of 111 Events.
The festlvie Itself covers the dates, this
year, September 28 to October 8; the army
maneuvers will ocuur on the days of Oc
tober S to S, inclusive, at Fort Omaha.
On Wednesday evening, October 6, the
electrical parade will pass through the
streets. On the afternoon of Thursday,
October i, the military parade will move,
and on Friday evening, October 7, occurs
the brilliant coronation ball at the Den. .
The electrical and military parades will
come as the climax of the format entertain
ment offered the general public;' the coro
nation ball will be the social function par
excellence, where valor and beauty vie with
each other In doing honor to the king and
his royal city.
Each year the subject of the electrical
parade Is varied, and this year King Ak-bar-Uen
XVI will make his grand entry in
a procession of glittering floats, the general
scheme of which la told In the title, "The
Bhlp of Htaie and Samson's Quaint Quips."
Who will be the king and queen this
year? The answer will not be given until
the unmasking occurs at the grand ball.
On a (orgeoua float In the parade his
majesty will appear, drawn by two cocky
ostriches, and clever guesaers will then
first have the chance to get under hla dis
guise, if they can.

Artificer Qua Reuse and his Worker In
wood, canvas, stucco, tin, papier inache,
plaster, and his artists and painters, have
been busy with the building of these floats
sine last winter.
Originality of design' and cleverness of
execution has always distinguished the line
of floats put Into tlia Ak-tiur-lien parades,
and this year's display will be no excep
tion, but will be bettered by the experi
ence gulned In the work through so many
years. Other cities have at times found
It to their profit to buy the Omaha floats
for us in similar parades in other sec
tions of the country.
"To muke a Nebraska holiday," is the
great underlying purpose of the whole
year's work at the den; a holiday of peace
and good will; of harvest time spirit, calcu
lated to cement the civic pride of the cltl
ena and win thd regard and kindly con
sideration of the whole state. Not only

ramp and will have under hla orders men
of all arms of tbe service to the number

to Unionise the riant
LOS ANGELES. Cal., Oct. l.-An attempt
to destroy the residence of General Harri
son Gray Otis, publisher of the Los Angeles
Times, by means of an Infernal machine,
was made this afternoon. Following, as It
does, the explosion, which early today with
great loss of life, destroyed the buildings
and plant of the Times, a suspected effort
to blow up the auxiliary plant of that paper
and the finding of a powerful Infernal ma
chine in the residence of Secretary Zee
handelaar of the Merchants and Manufac
turers' association, the attempted outrage
has wrought this city to an intense state of
suspense and excitement. General Otis and
the responsible heads of the paper unequiv
ocally charge the Times building disaster
and the narrowly averted attempta at fur
ther destruction of life and property to
labor union sources.
With equal emphasis the leaders of union
labor here and throughout the state repud
iate the accusation and have offered all
aid in their power in the effort to detect
Otis Fought I'ntons.
For twenty years following a quarrel with
the typographical union which resulted In
making the Times a nonunion paper, Gen
eral Otis has fought unionism with every
resource at his command. He has been ably
seconded in this fight by the Merchants and
Manufacturers' association, whose secretary
was the object of frustrated dynamiting
The feeling which ran high throughout
the city during the day over the Times
disaster was augmented when the startling
discovery was made that a dynamite bomb
had been found under the residence of
Secretary Zeehandelaar, and reached a
state of alarm and consternation when the
attempt on General Otis' residence became
known. The Otis home is known as "The
Bivouac," and stands on Wiltshire avenue.
In the most fashionable section of the city.

at the Zeehandelaar residence. Detective
Rice was sent to "The Bivouac" to make a
search' f tha -premises. With 'Charles
Flocker, the gardener, he found a suit ease
hidden under a bunch of vines under a bay
window on the side fronting Westlake park.
Detective Rice telephoned Chief of Police

the suit case. Chief of Police Galloway
