It seems settled that the popular ob
servance of Columbus Day, Oct. 21, is
likely to be the most general of any of
the centennials through which we have
passed. There is no doubt ' that the
American people, as a rule, have become
thoroughly interested in the significance
of this 400 lb anniversary.
One strong reason for this wide inter
est is the public school leadership of the
national celebration. As soon as this
school leadership was proposed, the press
of the country commenced to commend
the idea; it was received favorably by
superintendents of education, teachers
and thoughtful citizens generally.
8o it came about that the idea proved
acceptable to everybody. Then it was
further promoted by the official recogni
tions it received. The National Educa
tional Association adopted it, and ap
pointed all the state superintendents a
committee to carry it out; and a special
committee with headquarters at the
Youth's Companion office, Boston, to
push the movement, and to prepare a
uniform program for use in every local
ity. Commander-insChief Palmer, of the
Grand Army, saw the opportunity the
plan offered, and issued general orders
that all the O. A. R. posts in the country
link themselves with the 6chool in a
grand patriotic, un partisan demonstra
tion on Columbus Day, assisting the
schools to raise and salute the fUg, and
escorting them in the review.
Congress fully recognized the move
ment by directing the president to. pro
claim Oct. 21 a holiday, to be obsetved
by suitable exercises in the schools. The
proclamation recently issued by' the
president gave emphatic accent to the
school idea, and recommended that the
people everywhere make it the centre of
the local observances.
The official program, by making cer
tain of the day's exercises uniform in all
localities, will give the national observ
ance an important unity. This program
is promised for general publication
through the press the first week in Sep
tember. Its leading provisions are as
The schools everywhere are to asscm
ble at the usual hour on the morning of
Oct. 21. A detail of veterans is ex
pected to arrive soon after, and all will
repair to the yard. The exercises will
begin with reading of the proclamation.
Then the flag will be raised by the vet
erans. and saluted by ail the pupils in a
brief exercise, terminating in the song,
"My Country, 'tis of Thee " After di
vine acknowledgements, the "Song of
Columbus Day," an original hymn for
the occasion and set to the old tune of
"Lyons," will be sung by all. Follow
ing will be a declamation of the "Address
for Columbus Day" and a reading of the
"Ode for,. Columbus Day," both original
productions for the occasion.
Opportunity will then be given rcr
whateverladditional features local enter
prise may provide; and the morning ob
servance will end with short addresses by
citizens, and national songs,
For the afternoon a public school re
view is suggested ; or, if there is a civic
parade, it is urged that the schools, ts
corted by veterans, be made the promi
nent feature. In the mass meeting of
citizens, with which many places will
conclude the day, it is proposed that
among the speeches ample recognition
will be given to the American system of
free, universal education as a source of
American progress and the hope of the
October 21st is less than two months
distant, but all of this time may be used
to excellent advantage in preparing for
the celebration. In undertakings of this
character unadvoidable delays are apt to
occur. The schools which begin imme
diately on the work which must be done
to make the celebration a credit to them
selves and their town, will escape the n
noying situations likely to arise if every
thing is left until the eleventh hour.
The great Swedish dialect comedy,
"Ole Olson," is to be seen at Harper's
theatre this evening. " Ole Olson" is a
bright and intelligent young fellow with
the kindest of hearts. Of coarse his ef
forts to master idiomatic English keeps
us in a roar, but it is all good, wholesome
and hearty laughter, with none of the
lowering and brutalizing effects common
to a great number of the farce comedies
of the day. Our play goers will be de
lighted to learn that "Ole Olson" will be
presented at the theatre tonight and by
one of the best companies that will visit
the city this season. For two years put
the band has played "Ole Olson," which
means this uproariously funny comedy
has been a great popular success. The
novelty of the Swedish dialect appeals to
fun lovers and the excellence ot the com
pany of comedians who are to present it
will most certainly fill the house. In the
cast will be seen pretty little Lottie
Williams, Belle Francis and the well
known Miss St. George Hussey, C. F.
Lorraine, Frank Baker and the unctuous
comedian Ben Hendricks, who is the
"Ole Olson," make up the remainder of
The production was given in Council
Bluffs the other night, and the Globe of
that city says:
The large audience that greeted the
performance is the best evidence of its
popularity it being the largest house of
the season. This play is an old favorite
in Council Bluff i. and when as
well presented as it was last night is al
ways certain of a large attendance and a
cordial reception. The different charac
ters were well sustained, the principal
interest centering about Miss Lottie Wil
liams as Genie Dimple, and Ben Hen
dricks as "Ole Olson." The National
Swedish Ladies' Quartet gave their songs
with feeling and effect, and were enthus

present company of par excellence is the
same which played at the Casino, Chi
cago, Haverly's own theatre, for a season
ot 23 consecutive weeks, a season longer
than any aggregation of a like nature
ever presented in this' country. The list
of stars which constitute this organiza
