Long before the hour of ni rival the streets \vcio thickly lined with ( lie people of Omaha , together with a multitude of visitors fiom all parts of Nebraska and western Iowa. Good points of observation were secured and maintained by evcrjone nnxiouH to see the picsident of this gioat countiy , and his beau tiful and accomplished wife , who bears will inch ease , grace and dignity the title of "Tho First Lady of the Land. " No greater throng has over been Been upon the sheets of Dmalm than upon this occasion. AT couxciij Arrival and Heceptloii of the Frcsl- , dfiitlal Pin ty. Special car OJ , of the Union Pacific , wa placed at the disposal of the Cleveland re ception committee. At 0:25 : It wa boarded by the committee , consisting of iludgo J. M. Woolvvoith , Senator Charles F , Mandcrson , Pi. George L Miller , GcorgoW. Holdicge , W. A. Puxtcn , General G. B. Dandy , Max Meyer , and Hon. James E. Hojd and Hon. Chailes II. Brown , who acted In the absence of A. J. I'oppleton and 3. 11. Mlllard. The car was to Layo been In chaigo of Conductor Gaincs who has piloted uoioss the river many n distinguished party , but he was changed to the half-hourly iuns on the dummy during the day , and in his place , W. A. Douol , assistant superintendent of the Nebiasku division , as sumed chaigo. Mr. Bliokcnsderfcr , of the Union Pacltlc , and the Hue jcpiescntatlvo were also on boaid as Iho car left the depot ut 0:25 : o'clock. The run to the Northwestern depot In the Bluffs was made In a short time , and there the Omaha delegation alighted. The car was then run back to this city. At the depot of the Chicago & Northwest- cm , probably 3,000 , people had assembled. They were of all ages and every condition of society , and Kept up an animated conveisa- tlon , and a high feeling of expectation , espec ially as it was announced that the presidential train was twenty min utes behind time , The news was brought to the Omaha delegation that the delay had been experlcni cd at Missoiu I Val- toy , and from that point to the Bluff * the time would bo made up. The piomtso was realized cand at exactly 10.25 thotialnwas seen rounding the cuivo a couple of miles up the truck. The feeling of excite ment became Intense. Policemen pushed back the crowd from the tracks , and at length n splendid view wni afforded the Omaha delegation of the approaching train The speed was i educed , and when the engine tcauhud the edge of the tluonging con course , the uppioaeli w s not moio rapid than that of u leisurely walk. In this man ner , all danger of accident w.xs piecluded. The engine 101) ) , of the Chicago A , North- westoin road rolled p.ist lower bioadway. She was guided by James G. Blalno , one of the oldest engineers of the inad. Following came the Pullman car Alfatra , then the Vel.isco , and finally a roll ing palace maiked P. P. C. The cars were of the Pullman vestibule fashion , jecently ronti ired , with connections between each enabling n party to pass from one to the other without experiencing the unpleasant ness of exposure to the elements. The platfouu of the last car hung over the middle of Broadway as the train .stopj > cdand , on it stood riiFsinrsT CLCV ELAND , dressed in a suit of black broadiloth , hit head uncovered and the lingers of his tight hand Insoited beneath the lapel of his close- buttoned coat. He was easily distinguished from the resemblance ho bore to the bes ol the pictui'cs which had been sent In advance of him. Postmaster Genojal Yllas appeared on the platform Just as the crowd burst Intc ono long , loud and hearty cheer. Looking into the crowd , Mr. Vilas iceogniied Senatoi Mandoison , and immediately orders wcu Riven to admit the senator am his party , who immediately steppoe upon the platform and Into the vestibule carte to which the president had retired. Hero UK committee was picscnted ono by ono to Mr Cleveland and with nil of whom ho shool hands waiinly. At this moment , the train started /oi Omaha , and u few commonplace icmaiks be Ivvcen the guest and his hosts \vcro ex UtlL lkht iiriuc. wjauuci III a gray mantle , with n fall turban ujioii her head , glided into the vestibule , remarking In n hwcet , almost plilish voice , "Let me sco them too. " Way was made for her. IT \ \ vs MII . ui.vrt.VM ) . The president smiled and with her icturned to the platfoiui. Ihls was the slgnul for another loud Indulgence in cheers , In recognition of which the presi dent doffed his silk hat and his queenly wife smiled in hearty ap preciation. Both Mood iijion the platfoim , watching with n gicat deal of fear lest , as It was stated , the train would bo btukcd up , and some of the bojs who ran after it shoutIng - Ing with n great deal of enthusiasm might meet with Injury , 'iho backing up , however , was dispensed with and shortly befoiothe train lolled on the Union Pacillu tinok Major Gronowig of Council Bluffs , went on boaul , and , saluting the president , said : "Mr. President , as major of Council Bluffs , I bid joursolf and wife ! hearty wel come. " The president imllcd plcas.mtly and said : "Thank jou. 1 wish 1 could icinain heto longer. " The Omaha committee then ad\ancedto ( no door opening upon the platform whcio they paid their lespects to Mrs. Cleveland , who received each of the gentlemen with the gi ace and ease of nn accomplished lady whose net was entirey ! de\old of ceremonial icstraint. She was in communicative mood , and maintained tin interested pint in a him- died of the little subjects which weio piomptcd by the ciicumstnnces and occasion. When the train was rolling rapidly toward the transfer , a band of little Bluftltes , mounted upon licet ponies overtook the train , and scvcial of them flew past It at a rapid gait. They attracted the attention of both Mr. and Mis. Cleveland. The foimer smiled and the cjes of the latter beamed with In tense Interest us she exclaimed , half In fear , half in admiration , "How well they ridol" Pointing to the leading pony , "That , " said Senator Manderson , "is n genuine Mexican mustang ; but that , " meaning the driver , "Is not a cow boy. " The president smiled again and Mrs. Cleveland laughed. The train sped on rapidly , and gradually lessened its speed as it appioachcd the tiniisfcr , until it came to a momentary pause , when Major Gienewcg of the Bluffs alighted. When he reached the platform , he giaccfully doffed his white hatdisplaying his short , silvery hair , made u respectful obe isance and turned toward the Bluffs. The salute was to the pi esident and Ins wife , and was responded to bj' both. Again the tiain moved on , and leaning over the rail , the pres ident accepted a home-made bouquet fiom a poor woman , which ho handed to his wife , smillngl.v lemarking "Someone has sent jou a bouquet. " At this moment Senator Mandcrson , who was standing on the platfoim , espied General Dodge in the crowd and cndcavoicd to di rect to him the attention of the president. Ho then tinned to Mis. Cleveland and said , "Mrs. Mandeison made it my first duty to hand this to jou with her regrets , " handing her at the same time nn open envelope addressed to her containing Mis. Manderson's icgiets fit not being able to meet the fair guest. The packet was accepted bj1 Mrs. Cleveland with the ic- iniulc "I ' . " , am so sorrj' At this point conversation became most general , and Messrs. John A. McShano and Max Mojer approached and each piescnted to Mis. Cleveland copies of the other mot ning papcis. After they had been accepted by the lady , and some comments been made by the president touching the inultiplicitj' effaces faces which Mrs. Cleveland seemed to have in the artistic mind , the Bi.u repre sentative presented n copy of that morning's issue , containing the beautiful poi traits which adoined the paper. Like the tjpo with which it was printed , the cut was used for the ill si time. The president and his wife looked atthoplctuto fora moment , hastilj'glanced ov cr its page , and then folding the sheet handed it to his wife with the remark : "J am sorry wo have not preserved these papers. They would act us souvenirs some time. " The papeis weio carcfullj'put together by Mrs. Cleveland , and an attendant was called , and the sheets were deposited for futuie refeicnco. Dr. Geoigo L. Miller , who all this time had been qulctlj'conveising with Mr. Bisscl in the pi iv ate ofllco of the car adjoining the diawing room , came slowly to the rear plutfuim and standing for a moment on the threshold , Mr. Lament , who had preceded him , said to Mis Cleveland , "You remember Dr. Miller , do jou uotl" The lady smiled assent , extending her hand which was met bj' that of the doctor's. The president and the doctor then exchanged greetings , enter ing Into n shoit conversation , which was discontinued by Dr. Miller remarking that for a ladj' who had been reported sick in Chicago , Mis. Cleveland was looking re markably well. The lady blushed , smiled , show Ing u row of regular and pearly teeth , and somebody insinuated that the reports were caused by unwarranted newspaper cn- tcipilsc. The doctor then referred to his acquaintance with Mrs. Cleveland's giand- fathcT , who had ics'dcd hero , the fact that she would to day see some of iii.il i-iiorrim iv o\mu , to which she icpllcd she would bo pleased to do so. Ho then spoke of the Folsom hat , w lileh had been named after her , tind dc tailed an Incident in which her grandfathci had another rolsom hat named after him , caused bj' the appearance It presented when its bioad leaf was blown back bj' the wind while ho was lidlng against it on horse back. Ho thought that that hat was not of the conventional order , and Mrs. Cleveland agreed w 1th htm. Bj this time the tiain reached the biidge and the Mi'somi , and the sullen , muiky and lupid sticain for several minutes attiacted the attention of the presidential party. The Omaha committee then retired to the di aw ing loom , wheio thej'weio accompanied on Invitation by the president. TheOmahans stood around the luxurious apart ment which was carpeted in soft velvet and upholsteied In richest garnet , the picsident and Hon. John A. McShano Mantling at the head of n center table u ] > on which rested tloral offerings from ladles along the lino. W ft COMB TO TIIK I'KCSIDEXT. Mr. McShano then in a low , modest and well-worded speech welcomed the picsident as follows : "Your excellency , in behalf of the people of Omaha and Nebraska , I wel come jou to this great state , and to our city , which is the laigosl In the stuto jou aio about tolt.it. . Wo are gratified to sco jou in the west , and grateful that God has preserved and protected jourself and r jour wife throughout this journey , which has happily boon one of tatUfactlon to all jour friends. Wo hope that the icmaindcr of It will bo as pleasant as that which has already been passed and that jou may icturn at Its close improved andbencfittcdto joui uiduous labors In Washington. " THE rilESIDKNT UEPJ.ICD ill an equally low and pleasant tone : "Mr. MfShuno and gentlemen : I utuin to jou - my hcai ty thanks t for this col dial - ' VM'lcomo to jour slate and the U kiirdU 'lefcicuie of ; interest , & V" termination of my Journcj' . I am sorry that 1 cannot stay longer with jou , and much longer In this , the promising and glowing west. But though 1 nm compelled to go sooner than I would like under other clieuni- stances , I have no doubt that jour energy will enable mo to sco what 1 would otherwise lese because of want of time. " Uy this time the train had reached the bank on the east side of the river , and simul taneously , the fli st gun of the pi evidential salute boomed with gi eat foicd and volume. When the sound had died awny it was fol lowed by the chceis of thousands who thronged the jards and followed the train up through the depot. AHU1VAI/IX OMAHA. SccneH at the Depot The Picsldenll.il Carriage. The president and Mrs. Cleveland with Hon. J. A. McShano , Senator Mandci- son , J. B. Bojd , Max Mejer and othcis stood on the platform. The eheeis of the ciowd continued till the train stopped at Tenth stiect , where Acting-Mnjor Uechcl was piescnted. He was followed bj' Gov- einor Thajer and Senator Paddock , all of whom extended gieetings and welcome o the puity. As the guests weie about o leave the ear , Dr. Miller , speaking fiom vlthin the car said to J. B Bojd : "Please sk him ( thcpiesldeut ) to make n iUcinin- ' . " Mr. did tes'speech. Bojd us requested , ml the picHidcnt said , "No , no. What's ho use of wasting time when wo have got , o little to spend. But if jou want it I'll make one. " "No , no , " said the doctor. "I don't wont oflchiyjou. Then ; has been no Intention f that. Everj thing has been done to enable ou to use jour time to the gientest of ad- antage. " The partj * then disembarked. The crowd began to assemble nt the depot , t an curly hour and by 10 o'clock the Jam ivus immense. Still it was confined to within , radius of one hunched j.nds about the iepot , and was not nouily so hugo as ono would naturallj- expect under ciieuinstanees 10 unusual and extraoidinurj' . The detail f police was on hand and there was no nil- cemlj'boisteiousness or disorder. In fact , .he populace seemed to nvvalt the niilvtil of he presidential tram with an apathj' and mtienco that stiuck the close obseivcr with much significance. About half past ten Tin : I'lirsincNTiM , cunit ton opcthcr with those of the iceeption com mittee and prominent eiti/ens aimed and ft ere diiven into line. The vehicle , a missive barouche , nllotcd to the iresldcnt and Mis. Cleveland , Gov- rnor Thaver and Congressman McShano , ivns a marvel of decorative ait andoinnmontn ion , and icfiects exceeding cicdlt upon the Icbigner and vvoikmen. It was literally a mass of the most delicate cut ilovveis , the iodj' of the convej'anco being covcicd with hem in such a skillful and artistic wnj as to nake it appear to the cj e that the construc- ion was alone of these odorous an 1 lovely lossoms. It was reallv a feat of lloral 01 nu- nentatlnn that has never been equalled in LOiior of any event in this pint of the jountrj' . On each side of the can uige , ngenlouslj' stuccoed in the bed of rose buds of all tints and colors , in tiny pink immoi- ellcs , were the vvouls , "Wo gieet jou , " , vhilo the doors weio masses of snowy lilies ho buds of the Majesti , the Dijon and Marcschal Kiel , delicate spiajs of trailing smilax and hcllotiopq and gcianmm , wound over the velvet balustrades and the i car of . arriagc. At each corner , and at the door Handles , weio daintj' bows of led , white and blue ribbon , which also sti earned * in ho window from the duver's scat and whip. Attached to this adlant equipage was four magnificent black lorses , gaily caparisoned in gold mounted hnrness.and gaudy plumes , while entwined with the harness over each animal's back and depending gracefully at the sides were garlands of How cis , mignonette , ferns and guy colored buds , woven upon the slcu der tendrils of the ever-witching smilux. The Interior of this vcitablo conseiv.itory was a luxuiy of biocade plush and neh fur nigs , and never did honored man or lovelj woman udo in a more exquisite outfit. Tim univEii , VMUIAM wu.rov , and footm fcwcro livened in a daik shade of gieen , wealing immense clusteis of tea roses. Wclton sat like the favored attend ant of a potentate , but handled his icstive steeds with consummate skill. As the presidential carriage took its posi- tjpjtat the west end of the board walk lead ing fiom the depot , the Young Men's Dcmo- ciatic club , 200 stiong , formed a hollow square about it , while the remainder of the carriages doubling around the square , formed in line behind. At 10.50 , exactlj' on time , the train pulled into the depot , and tin ough until the car containing the chief magistrate of the country , his beautiful wife and distinguished retinue , was diieetlj' opposite the waiting can lagc. As the president appealed , with his wife ] ust back of him , picking her way daintllj' upon the platfoim , a lound of plaudits arose and quickly subsided. Govcinor Thajei , Senator Paddock and Acting Maj'or Bechel mounted the platform and greeted and wel comed the distinguished vlsitois. Again the people cheeiedjthen the president alighted from the platfoim , and taking the goveinoi's aim stepped to the cauiage , closelj followed bj' Mis. Cleveland under the polite escort of CongiesMiian McShane. Tins was the Hist opportunity the people had to get a good squaio look at the first , and ono of the sweetest , most winsome and beautiful ladies of the land , and In honor of her line loveliness and pcifect womanhood , a volume of delight appiobatiou ai ese that made both earth and atmosphere fnirlj' tremble. There was no mistake about it , this especial demolishatiou was for Frankie ; she was the cjnosure of 10,000 pairs of ejes , and it is possible that for the moment the crowd foigot that there existed such a man as Giover Cleveland , or a president of the United States. Such Is the homage lovelj' woman alwaj's commands. She know that she was the target of a tremendous visual bombardment , but she deported herself w Ith the wonderful presence of mind that makes her the central figure of at traction in whatever circle she moves. The faint rose color mounted to her lovely cheeks , and she smiled In such a sweet and captivating way , and In a glance swift , yet Ingenuous , she took In cverybodj' , and each man present congratulated himself In that his oycs had met hers. As she took her scat In the carriage , and the driver gave rein to the prancing steeds , the crowd with a yell , that sounded not unllko the outburst from a band of Comanchcs , swept down upon the vehicle , and for a moment threat ened to lift it bodily fiom the ground. Mrs. Cleveland , whllo that sweet smile still wreathed tier angcllo features , was seen to slit ink and lean toward thoassurlngcongi ess- man. The next Instant they weio off , and moving rapidly away from the madding crowd. Occupants of the Carriages. Tno cai i luges were occupied as follow s : 1. The Picbident , Mrs. Cleveland , Gov- 2.

A Fine Shcming By tlio KniglitH of 1'ythliiH. The i nrjdo of the members of the uniform rank of the Knights of Pjthlas was ono of the grandest sights which the people of Omaha have cver be-cn pumitted to wit ness. At 0:30 : o'clock the different divisions of the two regiments were drawn up in line and under command of Major General Carno- huntho , procession moved foiward to assist In doing honor to the president and affording the citizens of Omaha an opportunity of wit nessing the beautiful tactics of the rank. Some time was consumed In receiving a number of divisions and lodges which ar- livcd on the late trains. As the president und Mrs. Cleveland passed up Tenth street and cast on Harncy , Major General Carua- han and his entire staff , mounted on hnnd- some chargeis , saluted the distinguished party with drawn swords. On Ninth stivet to Farnam and west to Thirteenth , the diffeicnt divisions wrro stationed , single tllo and fiont face , and , past this line of bravo men , flittering svvoids anil handsome Uic-'c , the of the United States and his wife moved , acknowledging with pleasant smile and cor dial bow the graceful salute of the Pjthlan Knights.

This ho re fused to do. The urtillcrj' , chinch bells and steam whistles heralded the uiiivulat the St. Joe depot. The town was jammed with natives and stiangcis.
