CROWD AT LINCOLN
Scenio Effects of Unusual
Beauty and Musical Features
Especially Pleasing to On
lookers at Spectacle.
(From a Staff Correapondant)
Lincoln, Neb., June 14. (Special
"clcgram.) Pageant of Nebraska
was witnessed tontght by. a crowd of
The forest of real pine trees at the
toot of a scenic mountain made a
beautiful background for the bright
colored and filmy costumes of the
young girls who danced to the dreamy
music of the large orchestra.
The pageant, as depicted by Prof.
H. B. Scot' and his 300 assistants, gives
a history of Nebraska from the time
when the first ox team crossed its
broad, but then unfertile prairies, up
to the present time.
The story, which was written by
Hartley B. Alexander, was beauti
fully carried out, the music effects be
ing especially pleasing.
"Spirit of th. West"
N The pan which was, perhaps, the
most pleasing was that carried out
by Miss Charlotte Whedon as the
Spirit of the West." Another very
impressive part was the interpreta
tion of the Leader of the Voyagers,"
by ,G, H. Walters, The solo parts
were well given and repeatedly en
Miss Fay Lichtcnstciger, ' with a
chorus of fairy children representing
"Golden Hopes," made another im
pressive part cf the pageant. The
dance of the harvest and corn tnaid
.ens was another beautiful sight
The state song, "Nebraska," was
cleverly woven into the production In
several places and finally presented in
chorus as "Nebraska," symbolized by
iiny miss inarv xoung, danced to tne
centef of the stage under the clasped
hands of the north and the south. The
historical characters, including Ed
Pettis as President Jefferson, Sterling
Mutz' as James Monro. R. D. Scon
aa Napoleon, Victor Krause, as Tal-
jeyrana, uuy manners, Joseph
Johnson, John Bnahnell and Dwlght
Thomas, a Senators Douglas, Dixon,
Summer and Seward and Paul Dob
son as President Johnson, were im
pressive and representative of the
speaking parts. . .
The costuming was of the highest
degree of art and of greatest beauty.
Some of the costumes worn by Miss
Charlotte Whedon as "The Spirit of
the West," and "Columbia" and. the
choruses of "fields and prairies," the
"golden hopes" and "corn maidens"
iwere wonderful in their beauty. The
''Indians in a solo of which Mr. Comp
ton Scouts as the chieftain presented
a difficult tencr solo, were savagely
realistic Other remarkable costume
creationt were in the ' choruses of
"grasshoppers" and "birds," the "pio.
neers" and "voyagers,", and all of the.
historical characterization. -' Miss
Alice Howell, as "Liberty," spoke the

It seemed certain, however, that at

The total reported was $1.843.000..

afternoon at the treasury. They
showed an increase of nearly $200.-
000,000 in subscription over the pre
vious day's report.
Ihe loan, according to reports re
ceived by treasury officials, is in every
sense a popular one. By far the great
est issues which the bureau of en
graving and printing will be called
upon to turn out will be of the $50
and $100 bonds. For there was a
heavy demand in every section of the
country and in many rural communi
ties. The city of Washington, offi
cials estimate, wii: marshal 30,000 in
dividual subscriptions, most of them
for the $50 and $100 bonds. Employes
of the Treasury department alone
subscribing to the. $50 and $100 bonds,
have taken approximately $450,000.
Many to B Heard From.
Many thousands of banks and trust
companies are yet to be heard from.
This item, it is thought, will swell the
total by many millions. As a rule,
the banks have been inclined to hold

The amount subscribed today, $1,

of the amount of subscriptions. Offi
cials believe that the reserve banks
will be deluged tomorrow by a flood
of last minute subscriptions.
. There is yet time, however, for the
man or woman who wants a small
bond to get it, officials' said today,
for the small investor is to be favored
above all others and every applica

this would result in paring down the

Throughout the country banks and
trust companies are. keeping open till
late tonight to accommodate the last

psrtment has granted banks permis
sion, in extreme cases, to telegraph
the amount of their subscriptions to

per cent of the total at the same time,
but all subscriptions, to be counted,

.The exact total of all subscriptions

Expects Omaha Bale to Show Nicely.
"I think the Liberty loan ubscrip
tions in Omaha will show up very
nicely when the total figure are in,"
said R. C Peter of the Liberty loan
committee. We cannot yet tell what
the totals will be, for no one outside
the banks can have any : idea the
volume of work that i before the

tabulated. They are still at it, and
although our report must go in to

Now that Omaha has lost out an

Delog the issue and shift the resDonsi.
bility from the shoulders of the owner
ot the paper. -
It is pointed ou that while Des
Moines is a good city, it is almost
entirely lacking in railroad facilities,
having but one trunk line, the Rock
Island, whereas Omaha has half
dozen. Except on branch lines that
connect up with main lines that are
long distances away, there is no pos
sible mea..s of gettirsr into Fu
Moines from either the north or south
and no way of getting in from the
east or west except over one line, on
wnicn there are only two through
trains cacn way, aauy.
Business men unhesitatingly say
mat it senator Hitchcock had co-op
erated with the Omaha committee,
instead of laying down on the job.
this would have been selected as a
site for one of the cantonments. They
said that until the senator and the
congressman from this district failed
to give their support to Omaha, its
chances wee excellent. After this
failure and without a friend at rnnrt
Omaha s chances began tci wane.
Xhese chances waned, not because
Major Leahy was(a passenger aeent
connected with the Rock Island, but
because the congressional reDresent
atives from Omaha were asleep at

lieve the securing of a cantonment
was worth the effort of trying for
it, said one prominent business man.
Local Rock Island officials, while
they refuse to permit their names to
be used in interviews, assert that the
success of Des Moines in securing
ine location ot the cantonment was
not so much due to the efforts of
Major Leihy as to the inactivity and
apparent indifference of the Omaha
delegation in congress, it being con
tended that this inactivity and indif
ference gave the locating board the
impression that this city was not an
active competitor for the prate.
