For seven hour orammed full of west
em hospitality and entertainment. Presi
dent Taft wu the guest of Omaha and
King Ak-Ber-Ben yesterday afternoon and
Racorted from his oar through an avenue
mad by the officers In the crowds of
oheertnc people that filled the Union sta
tion the president was loaded Into an
automobile and whisked through the whole
sale, business and residence sections of
the c4tjr paat many publto and parochial
school building, where children, lined up
by their teachers, waved him a greeting
with small American flags; then back to
the Omaha club for a few minutes of
rest before the $30 dinner, at which luO
. knights of Ak-Sar-Bcn and a' few others
were seated and finally to the den of
King Ak-8ar-Bfn. where the atngers and
Jesters put on a special production of the
beautiful oprey, "Paprika Bchnltiel." for
the benefit of the presidential party, and
the president (wore allegiance to the king.
When the party a little before 11 o'clock,
ander the glare of thousands of colored
light that flooded the streets, scorched
gar Union station, where the president's
pedal cars were attached to a special
train, a welcome as strenuous as It wan
cordial was ended.
Car atrtke a Drawback.
Tha lack of street cars, which stopped
tha presidential party arrived, kept many
people from coming downtown to see the
president, but everywhere the procession
of fourteen automobiles waa greeted with
cheera from crowded sidewalks.
The crowds began gathering at the depot
long before the time for tha train to ar
rive. Fifteen mlnutea before the scheduled
time the police, aided by the Dahlman
guards, under Captain Wllg, cleared an
avenue from the train shed through the
le-ver waiting room of the depot, where the
automobile party waa waiting.
It waa :X when a Union Pacific shop
whistle announced the approach of the
train. The train pulled up to the main
gate of the long train shed, but before It
stopped the crowd had recognised the
broadly smiling face of tha chief execu
tive as he appeared In the rear door of
the car and a eheer went up which was
echoed by tha people back In the waiting
room. The president appeared with his
black derby hat la his hand Immediately
behind Captain A. W. Butts. He waved
his hat at tha crowd, bowed and smiled
- expansively as be clambered down the
stop of tha car and took Captain Butts'
arm as ha walked thrdugh the crowd.
i As ha paaead along tha crowd took up
I the cheering and tha president acknowl
edged tha tribute by bowing right and
left and waving his hat. . ,
Greets Men He Knows.
The members of the Dahlman guard
kept the crowd hack until the presidential
p-.rty had passed and then the people
bi)ke through and followed the party to
the cars outside tha depot. Here the
president held a short reception shaking
hands with Senator Brown. Former Gov
ernor Sheldon and others whom he knew.
Before the train arrived the crowds be
gan to congregate on the viaduct over
which the car would' have to pass. A dosen
deep, the people craned their necks and
edged their way back and forth trying to
got a glimpse of the automobiles as they
ascend d the Incline. Only now and then
could the face of the preeldent, reddened
by hours on the golf links and somewhat
thinner than when he was here last, be
gllmpned as, the car aped up the street
While there was no noisy demonstration
at ny point In the course of the proces
sion, hearty cheera were given as the
oars progressed along Tenth and Farnara
atresia. The enthusiasm of the crowd
was diminished little by the fact they had
to walk down town and back home again
in order to see the preeldent.
The presidential train which was run as
a special from Dee Moines consisted of
five cars, the president's private car, the
Mayflower, being attached to tha rear.
Several Omaha people were passengers on
the train having gone to Dea Moines to
renin with the party. Among them were
C. II. Pickens, preeldent of the Ak-Sar-Ben
board of governors; Gould Diets and
Arthur C. Smith, members of tle board
of governors; Will Hay ward, secretary of
the national republican committee; Victor
Kosewater. editor of The lice and member
of the republican national committee. Sena-
tar Burkett was also on tha train.

was bigger and broader when he returned
the cheering salute of thousands of school
children who waved flags and threw flow

man of the land.
Through a lane formed of the Dahlman
Guards, the president was whlxied down
the viaduct and his unique whirl through
toe city waa on.
At times the trip assumed dramatlo pro

Real estate which had been stationary

ground so fast at times that his greeting
meant for people behind waa caught by the
advance guard of the crowd In front. And

President Taft dined well as the guest
of the Board of Governors of Ak-Sar-Ben
and the dinner at the Omaha club last
evening will probably remain a pleasant
recollection even In the mind of the man
who might be supposed satiated and sur
feited with occasions of the kind.
"My friends," said the president In clos
ing a brief speech at the end of the dinner,
"I enjoy being here. I ,hope I. may be
here often even after I become a retired
polltlclan-and that you will receive me
as cordially as now."
The president reached . the Omaha club
at Just 6 o'clock. He was taken Immedi
ately to the rooms set aside for his use on
the upper floor. The other men In the
presidential party also -disappeared and
changed from day to evening dress. Mean
time the ISO diners of the evening were
arriving and all were at hand by :lfi at

from the landing of the main staircase
that the president would . be ready
In ten minutes. At the half hour
the signal was given to ascend the

a few seconds, none wishing to appear
forward. Then former Senator J. H.

The president shook hands with the
guests of the evening in the hall, whlcl

Pickens, president of Ak-Sar-Becn stood
by his side. Each man gave his own name
as he approached, though a considerable
number, the president greeted by name or
title for he knew many of the diners per
sonally. The guests filing Into the dining rooms
found the tables arranged in the form of
a rectangle with one of the shorter sides
missing. Another table reached down the
room from the center of where this miss
ing side would be, and parallel to the di

they came from the sick room shortly be
fore 6 p. m. Dr. William Mayo said:
"Governor Johnson Is not as well tonight.
He is falling slowly. His pulse is ISO, tem
perature HiO.5, respiration 36.
"He Is conscious and realizes his condi
tion. It is not a sinking spell, but a great
physical weakening. He has reached the
period where he ought to mend, but he
does not mend.
"I will not say now that It Is positively
certain that he will die, but his chances
are not anywhere even. His mind is
clear and he can discuss any subject, but
the body Is slowly weakening."
Dr. Mayo will return to the hospital at
7:40 p. m-nr. Mc.VevIn has Just re
turned from Governor Johnson's room and
"He Is sinking very fast. His mind Is
clear and he realizes that his condition is

hope and it now seems a matter of only !
a few hours at best."

that he had Just seen the governor said
that he did not think Mr. Johnson would
live more than four hours. His respiration
has increased considerably since the last
bulletin and his breathing Is very lab

Hoth Mr. natt and Mr. Wattles made
the statement Monday morning that there
am no. developments looking to a settls-
menv or tne controversy.
Such street car sen-ice as tho company
could give yesterday terminated abruptly
at 4 p. in. The cars were stopped by t'.ia
company as the result of a telegram from
President Taft's secretary asking that the
car strike be called off for tha day. This
was Impossible, and the company, at tha
request of Mayor Dahlman, made tha 4
p. m. order.
President Wattles asserts by Tueeday tha
company will have on hand 400 experienced
men from other cities to take tha places of
such men as remain on strike. Tha service

Apparently all efforts in mfft m ...,u.
ment of the trouble have failed. IVxh Mr
v, . . . n , m r i w yrWlQWll
of the International organisation of street
railway men, who is conducting tha strike,
said that no overtures looking to a con
ference had been made by either side.
The mayor's action In requesting tha
street railway officials to stop all trafflo
after 4 o'clock, followed the receipt of a
telegram from Mr. Fred W. Carpenter,
secretary at the White House, which road
as follows: r
The Mayor. Omuha: Please wire tne at
once condition of strike In your olty. Can
not arrangements be mada to have strike

Before sending his answer to the mes
sage, Mayor Dahlman called up President
Wattles and asked If the strike could not
be suspended while tha preeldent waa in tha
Didn't Start It, Can't atop It.
"We did not call the strike and wa can
not suspend It," was the answer, "but If
you request It, we will suspend all street
car traffic during tha time tha president's
party is. here."
Later Mayor Dahlman called up and
asked that traffic be stopped, and aa order
was at once sent out from Mr. Wattles' of
fice to run no mors ears after t o'clook.
Efforts of the strike officials ars being
directed to the organising of tha Council
Bluffs employes of the company. 'Head
quarters have been established there and
Ben Commons, one of the leaders of tha
intei national union, has been sent over to

At the headquarters of tha local union
it was stated that men who have been
running cars since the trouble began have
been filing applications for membership
in the union. Secretary O. J. Randall of
the union said fifty-one applications had

Mr. Randall said tha union had re
