In replying to the sentiments of the pre
vious speaker , Governor H 1 ! Smith of
Montana said that this scar has proven to
thn world a part of the groatnc's of our na
tion A foreign war has been successfully
prosecuted and nt the same time a few
fcpanel ) settled states In the west ha\e
brought together one of the most magnlfl-
oslllons the world has ever seen ,

It ha teen able to contribute towards
building this exposition Its people nro
warmly appreciative of the hearty welcome
the ) have received anil they can bo depended
on to stand for the Interests of Nibraska.
Continuing Oovernor Smith spoke of the
vast resources of his state In proportion to
Its population He quoted the annual pro
duct of gold and sliver , coal , wool and
other staples In 1897 with a population
of only 2"iO,000 U produced over $70,000.000
It Is the grealest mineral producing state
In the union and If Its
Arable land was put In a compact body It
would make n state bigger than Iowa that
would produce tnoro bushels of grain per
ucio th.in another soil In the United
States Uvcn Its own people do not realize
thu agricultural po-tslbllltles of HID state
Its climate Is salubrious and Its people are
lugged , hearty and honest. In the recent
win It furnlbhed the first volunlcer regi
ment to be mustered in. Allotted n quolo
of C1M men , It furnished 1,3GB lie com
mented on the fact that of these only one
had died and very few hud been sink , and
contended th.it this Is the remilt of thu
sturdy health of which the climate of Mon
tana is productive
In behalf of the exposition management
President \Vnttlts emphasized the welcome
previously extended 1 Oovernor Holcomh
He declared th.it no Htate In the iinlon Is
entitled to more crtdlt at this exjioslllon
than Montan.i Although one of the ) oung-
eat states In the union nnd burdened by the
expense of dealing and constructing stale
liistllutlons , It responded to the Invitation
i to participate In the enterprise In a manner
that left no doubt of the public spirit of
Its citizens. Paiticular mention was made
of the $15,000 contribution of Marcus Daly
that had made the handsome exhibit of the
slate pos-slble
I'resideiil Wattles spoke In enthusiastic
teims of the natural resources of Montana ,
which could furnish sustenance to half the
population nf the nation and predicted for
the stale n future of unexampled prosperity.
There were severnf other speakers on the
program , but on account of the hour they
decided tlmt lunch would be more enjoyable

A large proportion of the Montana visi
tors assembled at the pretty state building
at 4 o'clock to attend an Informal recep
tion which was given In honor of Gov-
e nor Smith Neither Governor Holcomb
nor President Wattles were able to be pres

St Lawrence river three miles above St
ItcgK Indian village , foil without warning
\ltli Msly men nt work on the bildge , all
being tin own into the river borne sixty feet
Over thirty were picked up and taken to
Cornwall hospital and twenty-seven are
The bridge consists of three spans , of
which two were completed and the third
A as neaily completed when the eoulh pier
? * vo way at Its foundation , causing both
.spans to fall Inlo blxty feet of water , carry-
lug IU load of human freight with It.
The names of the killed and drowned can
not at present bo ascertained , as they were
mostly from Pennsl\anln , excepting a few
Indians from the St. Hegls reservation.
The bridge that gave way was being built
across the St. Lawrence ilvor at the foot
of Long Saulto rapids , near HclnhnrcU's Is
land. The watct at this point Is known to
bo as swift as in any part of the river. The
immediate cause eif tint disaster nnd the
; ivlng way of Iho span of Iho bridge seems
to have been from Ihe washing awuy of one
of Iho large piers
Lale icforls from Cornwall hospital say
Ihlily-lhiee men have been taken out ol
Iho rUer and transferred lo the hospital.
Eighteen of them have since died. The
latest Information mal es It probable that
the death ILt will reach Ihlrty.

men were on the pa ) loll , of whom elghty-
iwo reported for work this morning Of thl <
