Om Train, ana at
Vetel sw. Steads, Be
Thousand! Come to Witness Races,
the Wrestling Match and to
Enjoy Metropolitan Cele
bration Today.
Prospect of Strenuous Session Brings ;
Out Much Money on Both
Every hotel shelters strangers who
are here for the varied bill of at
tratfions; the races, the ball game,
the wrestle, and the pleasurable
times afforded by metropollton cele
bration of Independence day. .
A early as , yesterday morning tho
visitors began to arrive. Early trains
brought them from all directions. EJvery i
road leading to Omaha bore constant j
streams of saucy, honking automobiles.
Many farmers and residents of outlying
vicinities even hitched up their lrss ex
peditious vehicles and started, Late last
night there was still a steady stream
pouring In from over the Douglas street
bridge and from roads entering tho city
from the opposite direction.
It is obviously an ' Impossibility to
gauge the Influx of humanity. Private
hoincs are crowded with friends and rela
tives who are here to bet money that Joe
Ktecher does or don't: boarding houses
are filled with those learned in the lore
of speedkings; hotels house the con
glomeration. nark Nebraska Grapaler.
Last, but not leaat, are those creatures
who are here for the aole and only pur
pose of seeing one Josephus Stecher em
brace Charles Cutler of Greco-Roman
fame. For the tlmo between now and to
night cannot pass too swiftly.
A bellboy In the Merchants hotel is au
thority for the statement that many of
tho visitors are so eager to do somoono
a financial Injury that they stop In tho
lobby, pull money out of tho bandanna
and commence to size up the folks in the
lobby before they even set down the car
pet bag or register. Persons with a
manicure or a Chicago paper sticking out
' of pocket are approached by a sun
burned sportsman oftenor than trail
hitters aieb temptation. The scene is
the same In every hotel lobby.
The residents of thta section of the
country who are In Omaha for tha match,
are determined not to let It be said that
Joseph BUcher Is without honor in his
own land. . Bo determined Is . the de
termination that it almost amounts to
defiance. There'll be. a, lot of good farm
laud for sale this week If Josy Boy
loses, ' but none of the visitors seem to
heed the oft repeated warning to "alow
up." 4
Autoists Advised
ToJJse Grace Street
Going to Speedway
Autoists going to the Speedway race to
day are urged by Police Captain Heltfeld
to use the Grace street road Instead of
Looust street, in order to avoid Jrafflo
congestion on the latter, which is par
tially blocked by work on the viaduct
"The Grace street route Is a good one,
well paved most of the way, and will
save time for auto parties going tc the
Speedway," Captain Heltfeld says. "I
had a motorcycle officer inspect it, and
he reports that It is the best route to
the ' races. v
"Take Grace street from Sixteenth to
Kleventli, go north on Eleventh to Lake,
east on Lake to Fifth, and thon north
on Fifth to the specially prepared
Speedway road Into tho grounds."
Auto Truck Comes
From Hartford and
Has No Puncture
A small auto truck, with a canvas top,
tilled with camping equipment and
labeled "Flivver Hotel," attracted much
attention in front of the Omaha Auto
club's headquarters at Hotel Fontenelle
6unday. It belonged to J. M. Gorton,
H. C. Mitchell and A. H. Orosler, three
young men who are touring from Hart
ford. Conn., to San Francisco.
They stopped off at Omaha, along
with many Other tourists, and after en
Joying a day'a sightseeing here, con
tinued west over the Lincoln highway
last evening. They have been out sinoe
a week ago Friday, camp In the car at
night and haven't had a single puncture
so far.

was brieriy review in dozens of pul

In applying this text to the national life
of America he charged the congregation
not to forget that a nation of great power
must assume also great responsibility.
He spoke of the greatness of the Ameri

"The nation is as large as all the
warring nations combined," ho said, "and
there is nothing that is raised anywhere
in the world that we cannot raise in our
soil in America. Yet our greatness lies
not In our area; our greatness lies not in
our agricultural resources. Our great
ness lies rather In the high order or In
tellectual life of our average cittxens.
Our greatness lies In the high intellectual
and national life we enjoy.
"We should be mindful that we owe a
debt to the past. Our national greatness
does not rest alone upon the efforts of
those who have lived since 1776. , We
must hark back to the days of such men
as Luther. John Hues, John Knox, the
Pilgrim fathers and many others who
suffered and died for the cause of free
dom. Let us not forget the brave men
who wrested the. Magna Charts, from
King John. We have Inherited great
things from the past and" we owe much
to the future. We have drawn from the
archives of the past the glories of all that
was best. We are God's favored people

Arrangements for
Funeral of Porfirio
Diaz Not Yet Made
PARIS, July 1 Members of the family
of General Porfirio Dias have not yet
determined what arrangements wlll he
made for the funeral of the late president
of Mexico except that they, will be of
simple character, in keeping with his
quiet life In Paris. The ex-presldent cled
last night as the result of a complication
of diseases due to advanced age.
General Dias during his four years'
residence in Paris made few acquaint
ances among the French people. He re
ceived many Mexicans, especially when
he first cam to France.
He was always absorbed in the news
from Mexico, but became more and more
distressed by tha disorders there as his
friends by letter and In person gave him
pessimistic accounts of the conditions
and the destruction of hla institutions.
It does not appear that General Diss
ever regretted his resignation from the
presidency of Mexico after thirty years

Only once so far as known did the gen

Team Pilot Mounts at
Tcrrifio Speed.
Deusenber; Team Finds it Hard to
Cling to Steeple-Pitched Turns
Despite High Speed.
Eddie O'Donnell. Tom Alley and
Billy Chandler, winners of second,
third and fourth places at Sioux City
Saturday, were the first three drivers
to try out the new Omaha board
speedway. All three of theso pilots
sent their Deusenberg machines aver
the boards at over ninety-five miles
an hour Sunday afternoon.
Chamllnr was the fjtst man to go on
the track. Chandler arrived shortly
after 1 o'clock and md several-laps
around tha track. One li.p he turned at
ninety-two miles an hour, but for all
this speort found hlmneif unable o hang
on to tho pitched walla at the turns.
After msklng several futile attempts to
go Into the curves without hugging the
safety apron, Chandler decided thst his
car was not fsst enough snd he hurried
to the downtown garage where some
more work was nut In on the engine.
At o'clock Uilly again appeared, and
this time clipped off ninety-five miles an
hour. He was able to take the curves
full and on several occasions ran clear
to the top of the forty-two-degree bank,
much to the delight of the large gathering
of spectators. A car riding the top of
one of the turns here is one of the most
spectacular sights a speed enthusiast can
hope to see.
Following Chandler, Tom Alley took the
trsck. but before he left he w
ahle to i
sail Into the curves under a full head of,""1 l" '" "" wl" " l
steam and spin around without side
slipping. Eddie O'Donnell was the third
Deuennberg drlvef to appear and had no
trouble after a few ' preliminary laps.
Alley and O'Donnell both turned laps at
nlnety-slz and ninety-seven miles an
Fiddle Rlckenbacher and Tom Orr. th.
Maxwell drivers, did not go out on th.
track, as they, kept working on their
motors in the garage all afternoon.
That the Omaha track la a year ahead
of the motors is the asertlon of raca
experts who are n attendance. Fasrt
ths racing cars of tha country are fast
enough to hold th. .teep-pltcl.ed wail. turns, and aven the Dounbg
drivers, with cars that are capable of
over 100 miles an hour, found It hard to
hang on. It U also a dUflcult track to
