For weeks the automobiles have been in the process of being decorated with natural and artificial flowers. Blossoms of all grades of loveliness were showered over the autos until every appearance of a mechanical vehicle was smothered in gorgeous colors, and when the floats moved down the streets with their regal urdena they seemed not to be on wheels. but rather like perfumed barges to float gently on the endless ripples of Qulvera's sunshine. For reveral years the floral parade has been a feature of the Ak-Sar-Ben fes tivities For several successive years this feature has grown more grand. Near y sixty flowered floats bloomed Into line when the fourteen bands began to play at Z o'clock at Sixteenth and Cuming' streets. Beginning with King Casper Tost and Miss Helen Ecoble in a handsome float encased in white flowers, trimmed In red, with a bower literally covered with red roars, led the parade. The kings and queens followed In the parade In the order of their relgnv down to the reigning king and queen, Charles D. Beaton and Miss Frances Hochstetler, who occupied the last or the line of regal floats, a float trimmed entirely in gold, with a CAnopy of gold built over ths throne, and a large golden crown set with rich gems resting on the pinnacle of ths canopy.

SUNDAY'S CROWD MUCH REDUCED BK FLORALPAGEANT Competition Between Parade and Sermon at Tabernacle Good Test of Faith, Says Kodeheaver. MUSIC CAUSES DISTRACTION Bands Drown Out Billy's Voice and Entice Away Part of His Audience. WILL NOT DELAY TALK TONIGHT "It's a fine thing for testing the faith of folks." said Homer Kode heaver at thfl tabernac'.e meeting yesterday afternoon, "to have a time like this and see whether the people would rather go to hear a preacher preach the word of God or go to see a parade. Perhaps you can do both." The tabernacle audience was only about 1,200. by far the smallest it has been at any meeting during the campaign. Outside in the bright sunshine the crowds were packed along the streets and long before Billy's sermon came to a close the strains of music from the marching bands floated Into the tabernacle and Btlll farther subtracted from the audience. Billy only redoubled his efforts, raising his voice to its highest pitch, but it wasn't enough to "drown"' out the bands. He was asked st the close of ths meeting whether the Wednesday evening meeting would start early so as to be over In time for the electrical parade of Ak-Sar-Ben. Billy best a spirited pompom on a convenient table with his flat as he vigorously declared: tVIP Not Wa'r f-r Parncle. Til preach here at the usual time and I don't care if the king of England and Wllhelm, emperor of Oermany, and the rsar ot Russia and the president of Fiance are in town, I'll preach. People that want to hear me can come to the tabernacle. Those that want to sec the parade can see that." It was estlmsted that about half of the small audience was made up of out-of-town people A delegation from Fremont numbered about K0, including about 110 from Fremont college. The latter greeted "Rody" with a yell as hs en teaed. When Mr. Sunday cams they wanted to know "Whst's ths matter with Billy Sunday?" answering the ques tion in ths well-known stylo. The saroo was waiting for "Ma" when she cama In and ths students had a new -sort of yell ' that seemed to consist of three vocal Jcrka, two convulsions and sj flutted ow handkerchiefs. "Ma" went up on the platform and told them, "We're glad to see you here. You can be sure of that." Billy's subject was "The Value of Prayer." Hs Illustrated it with many stories of wonderful answers to prayer. Hs pointed out that prayer is instinctive as tho flight of the birds to the south or the tendency of the squirrel to lay up nuts in the fall and therefore it is inspired by God.

Secretary Lansing announced today that Ger many "had disavowed the sinking ot the Arabic and was prepared to pay Indemnity for tho American lives lost. Secretary Lansing gave out the text of a letter received today from Count von ernstorff, the German am bassador, which was as follows: "My Pear Mr. Secretary: Prompted by tho desire to reach a satisfactory agree ment with regard to ths Arabic Incident, my government has given ma the fol lowing instructions: "The orilors Issued by his majesty, the emperor, to the commanders of the Ger man submailncs. of which I notified you on a previous occasion, has oeen mads so stringent that the recurrence of Incidents similar to the Arablo case is considered out of ths question. . ii an vows Act.

"Under these circumstances my govern ment is prepared to ray an Indemnity for American lives.

' Inasmuch as ths ambassador U acting with ths fullest powers conferred upon , him by ths Berlin foreljn office his rep ' lesentatlons are considered as final, the crisis Is considered passed and nothing remains to tha Arabic case except tho fixing of Indemnity, which will not be dons by arbitration as Oermany first proposed, but by dlplomatlo negotiations between the two governments. These no gotlatlons probably will begin orally. Men Ha' Sarresa'al Oatcora. In ths absence of official comment, the ambassador's letter was generally re garded as signalising a completely suc cessful outcome for ths principles for which President Wilson has contended in tho submarine warfare controvsrsy, which at least twice brought Oermany and the L'nlted States to the brink ot a break In dlplomatlo relations. Inasmuch as ths Washington govern ment has contended that the Arablo case must first be settled before It could con sider the question of Indemnity growing out of ths sinking of the steamship LusU tanla, for which Oermany has offered to pay, it is believed that feature of the controversy wl 1 be taken up.
