as Also Ioes Utah.
Chicago, Sept. 9. Today Jackson park
holds out attractions for more classes of
people than on any day since the fair
opened, and there is quite a crowd there to
see the sights, and they are at this writing
still "a-cominK." Grand Army day, fixed
for today to catch the boy in blue as he
leaves the Indianapolis encampment, is
catching him by thousands. , The jubilee
of transportation wliich the railways have

in charge has so many unique features
that it is a dragnet to catch everybody; it
is something to tell your grandchildren
about that you saw the old "John Bull"
locomotive run. California day welcomed
everybody who belonged, or had any rela
tive who belonged, to the state on the
Pacific coast, and Utah was not at all ab
sent on the day dedicated in part to her.
Then There Is the Liberty Hell.
California is making herself popular
by a free distribution of baskets of fruit.
Then the new liberty bill was dedicated.
This took place at noon. K. R. Lewis, A.
J. Burbank, J. XI. Longenecker, V. X.

pose the'Grand Army committee having
in charge the lilwrty bell. School child
ren covered it with flowers and sang songs
around it. A California child swung the
clapper for the Unit time. At 11 a. m. the
veterans formed before the Illinois build
ing and joined the school children on the
plaza west of the Administration build
ing. Director General Davis and the
commander-in-chief of the Grand Army
of the Hepublic made appropriate ad
dresses, and aen little Alice Scott, of Cal
ifornia, swung the iron tongue of the bell.
One Boom for Kvcry State.
Three times was the voice of the bronze
herald heard and tl e song of the new
liberty bell was sung. One by one young
wamen, representing the suites and terri
tories will advance, und as their respec
tive state flags are run up will sound the
bell. Fifty times will the bill rinc forty
four strokes for the states, five for the
territories and one for universal freedom.
The Salt Lake City Tabernacle choir of
300 voices will sing "America" and the
"Star Spangled Banner," and brass bands
will lend their music for the occasion.
After the exercises the veterans will
march to the live stock pavilion and hold
a Grand Army camp-fire. The flag used
by Admiral Faragut on the ship Hart
ford was carried by the naval veterans.
In the Transportation Iluilding.
But it was in Transportation building
where the fun began early and was kept
up all day. The building is gayly decor
ated, and there are six bands and four in
strumental quartettes to play there all
day. At 10i30 a. m. was the first parade of
the day. 1 his was on the lagoon, and was
intended to show methods of water trans
portation. Lieutenant A. C. Baker, U. S.
N., was in charge, and all sorts of boats
were in line. There was a full turnout
from the government ships. The Turks
manned a number of boats, so did the
Cingalese, Norwegians, Alaskans, Japs,
Dahomans, and Brazilians. Then there
was a display of the many types of fine
American pleasure boats and English aud
German launches which are on exhibition
in the building. The parade circumnavi
gated the wooded island.
At noon in the building there was a
parade of the Machinery hall exhib'tors,
who were received with high honors. At 1
o'clock fun on .the lagoon will begin.
There will be all sorts of ridiculous capers
in the water, and a collection of choice
specimens from Midway will take part.
There are prizes for" the craziest antics.
The railway head is f 8.U of resources and a
good many railway beads have been at
work getting up the fun for the day in
fact they "combined" tashow what they
could do. They should have succeeded in
making this a jublilee of the evolution and
development of transportation for they
had a wonderful storehouse in the building
itself to draw their apparatus from. And
they have succeeded.
TRANSPORTATION ON THE LAND.
An Object Lesson That Is as Remarkab'e
The water pageant was a brilliant and
beautifnl sight, but in interest is prob
ably surpassed by the land transporta
tion parade, which will start from the
front of Transportation building at 3
p. m. Here every manner in which man'
kind baa moved its products from one
place to another from the earliest days
will be shown. The first division of the
parade will show human carriers. There
will be Turkish water bearers, sedan-chair
men, porters from the orient. There will
be Corean, Daboman and Columbian pal
anquins and African "maxillas. Animal
transportation will come next. Donkeys.
mules, pack horses and camels, and fol
lowing them will be the division of wheel
locomotion everything that goes on
wheels will be there, from the bid Mexi
can ox cart, all made of wood, to a pneu
Locomotives, being the highest develop
ment of land transp o sition, . i ' . . .-;,
will bring up the rear. Xhe.long Jiuu of
modeis'ot locolnotives in tee Baltimore
and Ohio exhibit will be in the line and
will make a parade such as no one ever saw
before. The Pennsyluania road will raise
steam in the old John Bull engine and run
it up and down a short stretch of track
for the accommodation of invited guests.
And it will pull a train of cars such as
it pulled when it was the only locomotive
in the United States. At night the Trans
portation building will be gorgeously
illuminated, and there will be a special
pyrotechnic display over the great golden
door. It will be a big day.
A feature of the land transportation
part of the parade will be the "bike" di
vision. Heading it will be the old origi
nal "dandy horse," the first bicycle, and
then will come the old broad-tire wooden
wheels, and in succession the heavy iron
ones, then the high wheels with rubber
tires, and finally the safety pattern of 1893.
In all there will be nearly 100 wheels in the
parade, representing the various manufac
turers as well as the different stages of ev
olution. The formai exercises of the Californlans
will take place in their building at 3
o'clock, opening with an address of wel
come on behalf of the California World'
fair commission and the state in general
by John D. Whelan, vice president of Cal
ifornia commissioners. This will be fol
lowed by an address by Stephen XI. White,
United States senator from California, and
speeches by the president of the Western
Association of California Pioneers and by
a representative of the Xlexican veterans.
The formal exercises will be enlivened and
varied by songs, recitations, and music by
the Third Wisconsin Regimental band.
But this is not all. To add to the day's
trouble the Hoo-IIoos will break loose
during the afternoon and will march 100
newly-elected members around the
grounds for inspection. At 12 o'clock the
hundred poor unfortunates were initiated
and after each one has treated the whole
club they will be marched through the
city and the fair grounds much to the cha
grin of the young men who have vainly
sought admission to that ir.ost secret or
ganization. The motto of the club, a
black cat, will be one of the set pieces for
tonight's fire works.
The Utah people will have receptions at
their building and a concert by the Mor
mon choir of 250 voices.
At night there will be an unusually fine
display of fireworks, the chief set pieces
being finely executed Union emblems.
CLOSE OF THE EISTEDDFOD.
Ten Thonxaiu! Teople at the Final Concert
Big" Prises Awarded.
With an audience of "10,000 in Festival
hall the Eisteddfod closed its meeting at
the fair grounds last night. The occasion
was made memorable by the award of two
prizes, one of 5,000 and the other of $1,000,
to the successful competitors for first and
second place in the great choral event.
The first prize went to the Scranton (Pa.)
Choral union, and the second to the Mor
mon Temple choir, of Salt Lake City.
The Welsh Ladies chorus, of Cardiff!
Wales, won the $300 prize for the best
ladies' chorus.and Scranton carried off the
second prize. The Rhondda Valley chorus,
of South Wales, took the $1,000 prize for
best male chorus. Mrs. Potter Palmer
went on the platform and was given an
Another curious and ancient rite was
solemnized on the lawn in front of the
government building. The single un
hewn stone again stood in the center of a
circle of twelve other unhewn stones, and
on the central one the ch'.ef bard took his
stand, while twelve other bards stood in
blue tunics at the surrounding stones. The
prayer to "God and all Goodness" was
again recited, and then the chief bard un
sheathed a sword and held it out toward
the circle of bards.
,TTs there peace?" demanded Hwfa Mon.
"There is peace," echoed the bards, and
the sword was placed in its sheath once
more. Then followed other invocations
and responses in the language of ancient
Britain until the ritual hH
through to the end. At a signal from the
chief bard tne procession was formed and
the entire company marched to Festival

AN APPEAL' FOR THE DESTITUTE.

lina, A' let 1ms of the Storm.
Columbia, S. C, Sept. 9. Governor B.
R, Tillman baa issued an application for
help for the people of the islands and conn
try ruined by the recent cyclone. "r After
referring to the desolation wrouohl ' by
wind and wave the governor says there
are not less than 20,000 destitute. Bread
alone for these storm sufferers will cost
not less than $75,000 between now and
XIarch, while practically eleven months
will elapse before they can grow any.
Medicines, bed clothing anything that
can be used in a bouse, because everything
is gone will be thankfully received. "We
can buy these things with money, but if
money is not to be bad do not hesitate to
contribute. Send all money to me."
Appended to the governor's appeal is the
report of Dr. T. W. Babcock, who has re
cently returned from a trip through the
devastated region. Dr. Babcock says:
"The destruction of crops and homes was
more especially noticeable on the exposed
islands, which include John's, Edisto, Port
Royal, Wadmalawa, Coosaw, St. Helena,
and the others adjacent. The territory ad
joining Combahee, Ashepoo, and the neigh
boring river was found to have suffered
serious losses. At the lowest estimates
fully 1,000 lives were lost. The coroner of
Beaufort places the number at 800. The
storm swept away at least one-half of the
homes on the island facing the ocean."
