THE OMAHA DAILY BEE : MONDAY , OCTOBER 3 , 1898.
CIHCAGOANS START 1I01IE Esprescntativcs of the Windy Oitj Say Qoodbyo to Omaha , LEAVE PLEASANT MEMORIES BEHIND THEM Club Uvenx Up I.oiver rnriitiin Street mill MnKri the AVelltln ItliiK at ( lie MMT IltirlliiKtoii Dejiot. Chicago day at the exposition and Its visit to the city of Omaha has come to an end. The visitors , ns a while , have de parted for their homes. Many of them , however , bavo remained over , some from choice and some who were boluted arrivals nt the trains The earliest departure * wore on Saturday evening , after the exercises at tha grounds had been concluded , vvhon portions tions of Union League and Boarl of Trade visitors left for home , but the demo cratic marching club remalnid over until yesterday afternoon. As It was Hie last to arrive In the city , BO was It the last to leave , and as the burden of Interest c.'n- torcd In Us coming , so the bulk of the af fections of the people were b"itowed upon It In It departure. In fact , nil of the eastbound trains yes terday carried portions of the visitors from the cUv on the lakes , and the trains today will have their share of similar passen gers But the organized bodies nave left the city , and the few Chicago people left hero are but mementoes of onu of the great dcy.i | n the history of the Transmlssisslppl Exposition But the Chicago Marching club did not cross two states nnd two great livers 'o leave uhdcr the color of darkritMS It re mained over and H oresenco male } cs- totday ono of the liveliest Suidays down town the city has witnessed In many a daj For numerous reasons , unneceisjry to men tion , tlic members of the club did not put In nn appearance yesterday until the sun was well advanced In Its days work , but the-y were continually In evldenca fiom that tlino until the train bearing them home ward pulled out of the Burlington depot. The ball was started by a concert by the County Democracy band In front of the 1'axton hotel at 10 30 , and while It was lu progress the efforts of policemen were re quired to force a passageway In the street that street cars might pass along Travel on the sidewalk was also greatly Impeded. Milken a I'olltleul bpeech. After the band had played a few numbers Walter Thomas Mills of Chicago , ono of the leading democratic orators In thai ) city , mounted A light wagon which was standing near and made an address It wan political In character and overwhelmingly demo cratic. Ono man In the crowd sought to enter a protest on the ground that the peo- pfo assembled there to hear a concert and not a speech , but ho was not from Omaha nnd did not know that anjthing which Chicago cage sought to do was all right. Ho was given a frightful frost ) and In a moment the place which know him knew him no more Mr. Mills warned the people around him that a calamity was about to come upon the country. Ho saw Us advancing shadow and was certain that frightful things wore In Btoro for the American citizen. There was only one way to head It off , In his opin ion , and that was the adoption of-the states manship of W. J Bryan Ho touched upon the expansion question and said If the people plo were opposed to taking In any more territory they should vote t'ho democratic ticket. If they favored keeping the Philip pines , Cuba , Hawaii nnd Porto Rico to give those Islands the benefit of a humanitarian civilisation they should also vote the dem ocratic ticker , for the republicans would turn these now acquisitions over to the trusts composed of American energy and foreign capital and rho condition of the poo- pro there would bo OH bad as It had been Ho also said the people of this country had endorsed the war because It was aiding an oppressed and sttirvlng population , who had been robbed for centuries and were little better than slaves , but the American states man must not bo surprised If the demo cratic party UPO demanded that some no tion bo taken to pull a stop to the starva tion , oppression and robbery which was being Increased In this country. He said many other things In the course of H three- quarters of an hour speech and was fre quently applauded , for he was a scholarly man and his manner of speech was pleasing. Start * fur ( lie Depot. In the nUernoon the band was again called Into service and cave another con cert ut the same place , the crowds and other attending circumstance being llko those which wcro present at the morning X concert , excepting the speech. At 2:30 : Ma jor Karrell gave the command to fall In and the end of the Chicago day program began to appear. Three platoons of police , as on Saturday , took the lead , under com mand of Sergeants Her , Whalen and Halter , with Chief White directing operations. The band took Its position , and when the com panies had been formed the order to march was given and the parade started for the depot. The music ot the bnnd was again a fea ture , and the volume of harmony It bent forth gave an enthusiasm to the day wnlch hai not been seen lu Omaha on Sunday It played nearly all the time , and peonlo flocked from every direction to see the via Itors go bj The sarno crowds which fol lowed them up from the depot on Saturday as n welcome to the city followed them back yesterday to bid them fnroacll. And the same throng which waited at the depot for hours on Saturday , waited a similar length of time yesterday for the coining of the club and the departure of the train. When the marchers approached the depot they gave cheers for Omaha , and the crowds lining the railing on the viaduct responded with cheers for Chicago. After ranks had been broken under the train sheds other cheers were given for this city and someone ono then proposed cheers for Chief of Police Martin White , which wcro also given with a will , and nt their conclusion Major Farrell - rell called out"Take htm with you , boys , he la too seed to bo here. " The club reached the depot at about , 0 o'clock , wbero the train of Pullman cars was waiting , but the members had forty minute ! , In which to circulate among their new-madt > frlondi In this city before the train pulled out.

An bnur after the club left Its hotel In the city , the streets , which had been crowded all day , wcro practically deserted , and the place which had been the scene ot much cheering and much music during the previous twenty-four hours , was occupied by a squad ot the Salvation Army In an unappreciated effort to turn the thoughts of ! bo few who remained In that vicinity from she recollections of recent earthly pleasures to those of a more spiritual char acter And this was the end of the Chicago cage day celebration. 31 < ire lliimeNeeKern. A large number of Chicago visitors left shortly nftcr 6 o'clock last night from the Webster street depot over the Chicago , St. Paul , Minneapolis & Omaha to Blair , at which point they were transferred to the Northwestern line for the remainder of their journey A regular train of thirteen cars , with a number of specials. left at C 20 , car rying members of the Standard club and of the Chicago Athletic association Most of the Chlcagoans arrived a half hour before time for departure In order that they might dlno at their ease without the discomfort of f'o train's motion The Standard club reported a day spent amid the most pleasant and hospitable surroundings In the morn ing t'jo ' meml .r8 took carriages and drove about the city for several hours visiting the parks and other points of Interest. At 2 o clock they were tendered a dinner by the mntiaremcnt of the Paxton hotel , and the afternoon was spent nt the exposition The banner of the white dragoon on the red zronrnl representing the Chicago Ath letic association was also seen prominently on the srounds The special Northwestern train which car ried the Union Leaeuo club left ten min utes la'er , composed of eleven cars nnd equipped In a most comfortable and elegant fashion The attendants In the dining and sleeping cars were inado up of trained serv ants from the- club rooms In Chlcaco At the rear of the train was an observation car arranged for a woman's reception room nnd around this centered the llfo nnd gajety of the whole train. The details of the de parture were taken charge of personally by General Superintendent Henry S. Jaynea of the Chicago , St. Paul , Minneapolis & OmaUa. The club made no effort to get tosether ( luring the day , but spent the time accord ing to the > lr individual preferences A lireo number of them had friends In tli city and others made excursions to the exposition grounds and elsewhere.

They wcro objects ot as much Interest to the people waiting at the station as a cir cus Tlie bj slanders gazed at each one Just as they would wild animals. Suddenly the strains ot "El Capltan" reached their cars and ever > one rushed to the southern side of the station to watch the members march down to the train First came two files of policemen led by Captain Mostjn , then "Jim" Powers , the captain of the club , and the band and behind him about " 00 ot the club. At the train they stopped , cheered Omaha and made the sta tion ring with their "Rah ! Rah1 Rah1 Who are we ? We are democrats from Cook countee " The band pla > ed , members rushed about vvlth their arms full of bags and other things a > lng goodbye to the host of frlsmls who came to see them off Fully 1,000 people ple ciowdcd about the train and the viaduct was lined four deep with spectators. At 3 30 o'clock the conductot and porters ran hither nnd thither getting the members aboard and at 3 40 the train of eighteen Pullman cars with 400 passengers left Omaha The club will stop for an hour's parade at Creston , la , and will reach Chicago nt 9 o'clock this morning. Their next Important excursion will be to New York to help the democrats In November. In refreshing contrast to the noise and hubbub of the Cook county democrat's de parture was the quiet and unostentatious leaving of the Board of Trade special. At C CO the elegant Chicago , Milwaukee & St. Paul train came Into the Union station , hav ing left the exposition at 5 o'clock. After a wait of ten minutes the train with Its wealthy patrons drew out. U la not duo In Chicago till S 25 this morning , to enable the passsngers to breakfast aboard. The Webster street station was crowded with friends and sightseers to speed the Union League club on Its way And without accident or mishap the special left at C 30. All the Chlcagoans , though tired , were happy and enthusiastic over the exposition , its management nnd the liospltalltj of their hosts and seomcd to regret that they could not prolong their stay.

A Sherman avenue street car met with an accident Saturday night In turning the cor ner at Sixteenth and Clark streets The motorman failed to diminish speed nudl elently when the < curve was reached , and the sudden swerve Jerked the trolley violently lently from the wire and threw several people plo to the ground The car was heavily loaded and the hold of several passengers was too Insecure to enable them to with stand the shock. Mrs. Gus A. Llndman ot Creston , la , was the most seriously Injured , receiving a broken rib and severe bruises about the bead She was rakcn to the office of a neighboring surgeon , where she received medical attention and was found not to be badly hurt. Mr Li ml man also fell from the platform and received a sprained wrlat Ills boy , whom ho carried in his arms , was thrown some distance , but escaped without Injury. Miss Ellen Saline , Twentieth and Clark streets , was cut and bruised painfully about the head nnd Mrs Allman , Thirty-third and Q streets , South Omaha , was bruised about the body The latter remained at the homo of Mrs. C.

Inncs' concert at the Auditorium jester- day was a most cnjojabic occasion nnd brought such a jam as made the vast buildIng - Ing all too small for the big assemblage. Even the society clement ) was largely In evidence Whether the magnificent per formances of the band or whether It maybe bo that the rare taste dlsplajcd by the lender In the makeup ot his programs Is the reason , there Is no questioning the fact that Omaha people who have been In the habit of going to the big show twice a month may now bo seen sitting In front of the music stand day after day and night after night. With them It seems to be sim ply a case of t'hero being "but one Wagner and Inncs Is his prophet. " , Among the manj notable features of jes- terday's concerts wcro Handel's Largo , magnificently given by Mr. Thomas J Kelly In conjunction with the band , and who , In response to the determined encore which followed , gave the ahvajs popular Inter mezzo from the "Cavallcrln" Inncs' own solo , "Inllammatus , " was of course the oc casion for some more unrestrained enthu siasm. The t'no Mendelssohn songs , "Farewell to the Forest" and "Spring Song , " were given the flist by the brass instruments alone and the second by the reed choir with a finish and delicacy which shows the wonderful virtuosity to which the band has been brought. Mr. Zimmerman's trombone solo In the evening concert was received with a demon stration of favor that must have been grat- Ifjing In the cxtremo to this brilliant ar tist. Such runs , roulades , trills and tours do force generally as were performed by this phenomenal pfajer with seeming case nro usually confined to the flute , cornet or clarinet. The set program was largely added to by the Innumerable encores which greeted almost every number. In thcso pa triotic selections largely predominated and each was received with displays of pa triotism which did one good to see. The "Request ! " program which la an nounced for tonight's concert will bo scanned with considerable interest by those who are curious to see just what shape such a program will take here. Innes says that so far as his experience goes the taste for good music appears to him to bo on about ns high a piano hero as anywhere else ho has played , and certainly fhe pro gram of tonight , which Is made up en tirely of selections requested by the patrons of the concerts , goes far to substantiate the statement. Tv\ln Clt > KxpiirnloiilBtM. Exposition Commissioner Field , who Is In charge of the Minnesota building , has re ceived advices from the chairman of the eommitteo who Is working up the Twin City excursion that will come to the expo sition next Friday night , the members of which will remain hero until the follow ing Wednesday. He says a great deal of In terest Is being worked up In Minneapolis rtiid that the Indications are that thousands of the residents of the two cities will bo here. They will come In special trains and many of them will sleep In their cars dur- Inr their stay. The roads , ho says , must have made a very satisfactory rate for the occas'on. The people who are coming down from the two big cities of Minnesota expect to take part In the exercises of Peace Jubilee week and nro all anxious to see and meet President McKlnley. As this is the only _ oppoitunlty they will have of meeting him while he Is miking his western tour. It will bo an Inducement for many of them to visit the exposition , who otherwise would not come. While the excursions will start from Minneapolis and St. Paul , people at the stations en route will be picked up and brought along , as the same cheap rate will be applied to Minnesota towns this side of the two big cities. tMl On n n l In ii N Coming.

In reference to Omaha's new chief of police Chief Klplej said "Now what I have to say regarding White Is not a Jolly duo to my friendship for him or In return for the courtesies he has extended to me nnd my Chicago friends. I know Whlto to bean an experienced olllccr , a man of good judg ment and an excellent organizer , TPC ! Omaha I know will profit by his administration of 'tho duties as a chief of police" Inspector Ilartnett , who some ten years ago traveled with Chief Whlto as a doteo- tlve , voiced Chief Klpley In nil ho said re garding Omaha's chief. The same sentiment was expressed by the "fi > " coppers all of whom are Intimate friends of Chief White. None of the party had words to expicss their feeling of the reception they received at the hands of the police and the city at large. The police contingent of the Cook County Marching club , Lieutenant Perry ald Ind visited many cities with the club , but hid never before received so cordial n welcome ' as they did when they stepped from th3li j trains Saturday morning. | Ho did not except , ho said , the club1 * visit to New York n jear ago as the guests ot Tammany hall.

The Trocadero prc ents for Ak-Sar-Ilen week an unusually Interesting vaudeville bill. The general object of Interest la the Countess Von Hatzfcldt , a representative of one of the oldest families among the Clcr- mnn nobility. The countess Is young , do- cldcdly pretty , has a rich contralto volco and a decidedly plcasnnt way with her. Those who see her out of mere curiosity , not expecting anything moro than the sim ple sight of nobility on the vaudeville stage will bo agreeably disappointed , for she really sings qttlto cleverly enough as to cnablo her to make a hit under a less Illus trious name. The gem of the performance Is la pctlto Lund , a G-year-old , who sings character songs In a manner that may well bo the envy of women of mature > ears. Her volco has ample volume to enable her to bo distinctly heard In all parts ot the house and has none of that strained nnd piping quality common to child vocalists. For one of her age , she really has a marvelous voice , and Is as chic and clover as a veteran vaudeville star. There are several other good musical numbers , among them Schaeffer nnd Oarvln , operatic vocalists , nnd the Danzctto sisters , In negro melodies Starkey and Hathburn do some clever work on the horizontal bar , and the Flood broth ers are plajlng a return engagement , pre senting one of the best comedy aciobatlo acts In the business Hill and Kdmunds , with nn acrobatic sketch , Mile Tchl , magi cian , Prof Doherty , with a number ot fairly clever trnlnrd dogs , and the two Dlxons nnd Bowers , the thrco "Hubcs , " complete the bill. There will be matinees every day during the week and the nights of the paindes the performance will not commence until the iiaradcs arc over. The reorganized Woodward Stock com pany made Its first Incursion Into comedy last evening In Sidney Hosenfcld's "Tho Two Escutcheons" One thing which rec ommends It to begin with Is that ) It Is clean In the best sense of the word and never descends Into the gross for the sake of producing a laugh. Its title Is derived from the prldo two of Its principal char acters tnko In their position In the world one the descendant of a house whose patent to nobility dates back Into the time of the crusades , and. the other with an escutcheon which Is home-made , the product of Its head's own business sagacity and aggres siveness In the pork packing business In Chicago The daughter of the pork packer and the son of the German baron vvcd , but the prldo of nobifity revolts at the Idea of a matrimonial alliance with the family of a "butcher. " Incidentally a rich Ameri can widow , who Is the chaperon of the pork packer's daughter on her trip to Europe , attempts to reform a genial but spendthrift army officer and nt Intervals between fur thering the matrimonial prospects of her female charge succeeds In falling In love with the army ollltci Frank Ltndon as Baron Wettlngen , proud of the family name , docs by far the best ple co of work credited to him since joining the company. He puts both spirit nnd dignity Into the part , mak ing of It a very cntcrtalslng bit ) of character work. Miss Crclghton , In the role of the nalvo and vivacious widow , also docs her self credit Nothing she has done since coming to Omaha has been moro pleasing. Miss Dunn , as usual , was sprightly and Hat Davis was the same enthusiastic and un conventional lover. Will Davis , as the Chicago pork packer , was an excellent foil for the proud German baron and Mr. Montague - taguo demonstrated that ) he can he the care less and flippant as well as the serious and romantic character , but always the ardent lover. The other members of the company contributed their portion to make of "The Two Ebcutcheons" what the author Intended It should be , a delightful bit of clean com edy. It will remain the bin at the Crclgh- ton during the week. "A Ilomnnco of Coon Hollow , " a melo drama of a class which Is not so common now as a fovv vears ago , when a really bad man was a necessity and realistic stage mechanism was an essential part of the performance. It Is a story of mountain llfo In Tennessee , with the scene shifting to the banks of the Mississippi , allowing of the Introduction of a boat race between the Natchez and the Robert E. Lee ; the cottage press , In which the bad man attempts to crush his rival , but who Is saved by the timely arrival of the heroine. It Is n melo drama , sure enough , possessing none of the touch of that guile qualntness of southern character which has charmed so many people plo In Shenandoah , Alabama and others , presenting southern life and southern people In anthing but their best light. There Is a touch of the charm of the south In the Carolina quintet , four male and ono fcmalo voices , 'which renders southern melodies very acceptably , and the Inevitable old darky and Georgle , the child of the moun tains , with her free and unconventional manners , lend a touch of comedy to enliven the gloom caused by the plotting of the nrch-vllllan. Productions like "A Romance ot Coon Hollow" add nothing to the art of the stage , but If you want something which Is exciting and thrilling nnd are an admirer of realistic presentations , "A Ro mance of Coon Hollow" will satisfy you. The company which presents It Is fully as capable as the acerage. \HC UN Something KIINJ. OMAHA.

It is the very best piece of chewing tobacco ever sold at any price , and it is possible and profit able to sell a large piece of this high-grade tobacco at so low a price because there is five times more of it sold than any other kind in the world. concerning the powers and methods of the assistant cxccutlvo olllccr In the conccs siena department of the Transmlsslsslpiil Ux- josltlon Has ho absolute power to arbl- raillv discriminate between applicants for concessions without giving the applicant n chance to be heard ?

Governor Holcomb will bo In Omaha on Tuesday to consult with the committee ot the Thurston Hides auxiliary relative to the recall of the First Nebraska from Manila and the muster of the regiment out of the serviceA eommitteo was appointed to go to Lincoln to discuss the matter with 'tho ' governor. In answer to a telegram , asking for an appointment , Governor Holcomb sent word that he would meet the committee nt Omaha on Tuesday. In anticipation of the conference , u meeting is called for tonight of the fathers , mothers and other relatives of the Thurston Rifles at the armory to obtain a full expression of the sentiment of the relatives of the soldiers on the mat ter. According to the letter from Assistant Secretary of War Melklejohn to Governor Holcomb , the latter has the election of which regiment of Nebraska volunteers will bo mustered out. Secretary Mciklejohn stipulates only that In event the rirst regi ment Is chosen to be withdrawn Irom the service another regiment of Nebraska volun teers must be at San Francisco ready to embark for the Philippines on the ship that brings the First back from Manila. All the men In the Third Nebraska nro not anxious to bo mustered out , as the fol lowing letter well shons : CAMP CUBA LIHIIR. I'ablo Heach. Fla . Sept. 2C To the Kdltor of The Ilee I have seen several lottcra from soldiers of the Third Nebraska In The Ueo and other papers In which was expressed a desire to bo mus tered out and strong Insinuations that It was the duty of the War department to En accommodate us. Thus far I have seen nothing written on the other oldc I saw .1 statement In one Nebraska paper that the Third Nebraska vuis "almost In n state of revolt , " and thiough a clcslro to stand up for the Third regiment ns I once In my feeble way atood up for our state. I wish to protest that that Is an cntlro mistake. I wish to amure the reudois of The Heo that thue arc some enlisted men In ths Ihlrd who aio still an willing ns on the day of enlistment to serve our glorious country until voluntarily discharged bv the War department or until the e\pliatlon of their term of strv Ice U Is r.Uhcr humiliating to read of tha efforts made to get us out of service when we remember what extraordinary efforts UCIK belim made u > < hort time ago to get us into M'o oivlcp.

Whlla cHlmlng no knowledge ot medical science I have made bold to glvo this dis ease the name "crawfish fever " Many of us have been In the habit of seeking employ ment and holding one job as long as wo pleased , then quitting that and trying an other It may be a good schooling to us to learn that vvo cannot nlwaja do that , and that we should ( .any out the contracts wo /oluntnrllv make.

We are not vet rpadv to believe that our colonel will resign and desert his regiment In closing I vslsb to pay lo the readers of The Dee that although home have returned from our ranks because their discharge- * wcro easily obtained there are still many who have too much self-reHpcct to return mustered out at their own request.
