More than 300,000 jieoplo have passed through the exposition Rates and filled the White City with llfo nnd human energy. Each day has been marked by Imposing spectacles and cere monies In which the most distinguished Btatesmcn , soldiers and diplomats of this nnd other nations have participated. These have brought together such a concourse of visitant as Omaha never saw before and nil have united In declaring the Transmls- elgslppl Exposition to be the greatest en terprise of the age. From a financial standpoint , also , the record of the week Is moat satisfactory. It Is yet Impossible to tell just how much the exposition has profited. The collectors hove been almost constantly employed In handling the money received at the gates nnd very little has been co-llcctod from the concessions. As these tllil n tremendous business all through the week largo amounts remain duo the exposition which will be col lected as rapidly as the department can work out of the rush of business in which It Is entangled. But Independently of these outstanding accounts , which have not yet been tabulated , the receipts of the week have swelled the cash In bank to more than jr.00,000 , as compared with about $135,000 at the beginning of October. With good weather nnd the low railroad rates that are assured < lurlng the remainder of the month It Is be lieved that this amount will easily bo In creased by $100,000 before November 1. The last dry of the Jublleo was devoted entirely to < he children and there were ihmisamU of them on the grounds. A large proportion cf the membership of the public urlioolb spent the Saturday holiday In the pleasant sunshine anil among the hcautlca of the exposition and as moan of them were accompanied by their parents the 1'if-i' crc"'d " ' * ? proport'onatc-lj ' * larger than on any day during the week. But although the 'bulk of the Jublleo vUUors have gene homo a surprising number of olit-ot town people remain. Hundreds of family parties drove In from the surrounding coun try yesterday morning , attracted by the beauty of the day , and the morning trains brought In a largo number ot visitors from nearby polnte | to spend a day or two at the fair. While the early nTornlng crowd did not indicate more than an ordinary attend ance , after 0 o'clock the arrivals multi plied nnd from then t < o noon the rush of the last few days was very neirly dupli cated. The street cars were again crowded and the large proportion of children made each load count heavily at the turnxtllcs. There wns n continuous stream of arrivals passing through each of the entrances and the grounds filled up nt a rate that Indicated that ! the Saturday record of 2C.007 , which was made New York day , would bo broken , with a few thousands to spare. The afternoon attendance was also com paratively liberal. Hundreds of people watted until after lunch before going to the grounds In order to stay to the children's concert on the Plaza and their presence made the afternoon and evening as lively as these of the bigger days of the week. At 2 o'clock there was a very pretty display of Japanese fireworks on the Plaza for tha benefit of the youthful visitors and as many of the concessions gave them a reduced rate the children made a thoroughly cn- Joj'ublu day of \ \ . Today the 25-cout rate will bo In force during the afternoon and evening nnd the usiial concert will help to entertain the crowd.

She wns ound supporting herself on a , plank two hours afterwards. Even then she assisted n the work of rescue. .The bowman of .he lifeboat expressed the opinion that she was the pluckiest woman ho ever saw. " W. J.

The only woman In the 'Igglng was the second stewardess , Mrs. Mggott , who was similarly rescued after lours ot exposure.

Mr. and Mrs. Pemberton and two young Rons wcro raveling with a nurse. The whole were saved by the father's coolness. When the shin's boat came alongside he pasted them ate the boat without disorder and jumped In afterwards. They were all taken out by the shore life boat. Maud Itouudebouch , another saved , is an oaera , singer going to New York to fill an ngagement at the Metropolitan opera house. Mrs. Grandln of New York was alive when picked up but died In the rife boat. Gray , steward , gives a graphic account. When ho reached the companion way after the collision the chief steward told him to get life belts for the women. Ho got out three. He met a man and woman and a Ittle boy. The woman Implored him to save her bov. Ho tied a life belt round him twice and then wrapped a blanket round him with holes for the arms. He then heard the captain say : "This way , ladles. " Soon after the ship gave a lurch nnd went down. He saw no more of the boy or the father and mother. ANKOclntert I'rrxn Story. PALMOUTH , Eng. , Oct. 15. The Brltlsl steamer Mohegan , Captain Griffiths , belong ing to the Atlantic Transport company , hai been wrecked In the vicinity of th3 Lizard between the Manacles and the lowlands It is believed that about 127 persons of It : passengers and crew were drowned. Onl : forty-seven survivors have reached thi shore. The Mohegan was formerly the Cleopatra of the Wilson and Furncss-Lcyland line. 1 left London for Now York on Thursday having on board , so far as can be aacer talncJ at present , fifty-nine passengers am a crew of 115 officers and men. When tin steamer was seen to be In distress life boats put off from the shore and ever ; effort possible was made to save the pas oengers. The coast at this point li ex tremely dangerous and has been the scrn of numerous wrecks. The general oplnloi at present Is that the machinery ot th Mohegan became disabled during the heavj easterly gale which was blowing and tha It ran ashore and foundered. A number o tugs which put out from this port to th' ' assistance of the Mobegan were compelled to return without being able 10 npproacl the vessel , owing to the severity of th weather prevailing. A lifeboat lamlei thirty-one of the passengers and the crov of the Mohegan. One of the former , i woman , died after she was brought ashore There are rumors , unconflrmed as thi dispatch Is sent , that another lifeboat fuc ceeded. In saving six more persons. Ono of the sun-Ivors of the Mohegan , Mr George Maul of New York , was Interviewee after ho bad sufficiently recovered to b able to tell the story of the wreck. II said : "I am a shipper of horses , employe by the American Transport company. W left London on Thursday and all went wel until 7 o'clock yesterday evening , wh-j most of the passengers were at dinner. Th steamer was going at full speed and aud denly we heard a crash , which seemed t denote that we had collided with some othe vessel. But when wo rushed on deck w found that the Mobegan was on the rock between the Manacles and the lowlnaJi la the vicinity of the Lizard. CriMV Ueluivecl I.lUe Ilcrom. "Orders wcro given at once to lower th boats and the crow of the steamer bchavei like heroes. Its captain stood on the brldg and the greatest order prevailed among tb oRlcers and crew. "The steamer began to settle by the head Two boats were launched , but whether thea boats reached land or not I do not know 1 managed to secure a life belt and juuipei overboard In company with the chief officer of the Mohegan , Mr. Couch , Ho made mo take off my coat and shoes. Soon after that we were parted from each other. When I was leaving the vessel a little glrf begged Dtteously that I try to save her , as she did not want to die yet. I was powerless to help bcr. Eventually I caught hold of a plank which was floating on the water and I c to It for two hours. At the txplratlon of time I was picked up by a tug. I coiil have lasted much longer. "I cannot explain how the acclde : curred. The whole matter Is not to me. " From other tourers It was lear : the Mohegan sank about twenty mln It ran ou the rock's. The locaf pear to be unable to explain ho began got Into such a position. Later In4.be morning It became another lifeboat had landed a of the survivors of the Mohegan boats put out from a number of ploc were expressed that the number of survivors may bo Increased. One of the sixteen per sons Just known to have been saved Is a woman. All the survivors are In a pltlablo condition and some of them have been badly injured by waves and rocke and are suffer ing from bruises and torn and fractured limbs. More Survivor * Hoporteil. As the day wore on further reports re ceived here showed that forty-five survivors of the Mohegan were landed at Port Hou- stock , Cornwall , where the bodies ot five dead persons have been received. Then came the announcement that four teen of the crew of the wrecked steamer had been found alive on the rocks near the scene of the disaster. One of the passengers rescued by the Port Houstock lifeboat says that all the passengers were dining when the catastrophe occurred , though some of the children and those who were seasick were In their bunks. Suddenly the Mohegan struck with a grating noise. At first the engineers thought this wns caused by coal falling down i the bunkers , but a second shock fol- owed , and the vessel began to settle. A coast guardsman who was on duty at Coveract says he noticed the Mohegan was ursulng a dangerous course. William Moore , a seaman of the Mohegan , elonglng to London , was among the men vho succeeded In reaching Port Houstock. le said the vessel struck forward on the larboard bow and sank head first , Its stern Islng right up in the air. Moore sprang verboard , and after swimming for a con- Iderablc tlmo succeeded In reaching an mpty lifeboat belonging to the steamer. He ot Into the boat and started to row for the hore. Sometime afterward he saw ono ot Is shipmates , a man named Hllson , on n aft. Hllson wa * exhausted , and Moore ragged htm Into the lifeboat. Illlson'a houlder was badly Injured. The sea was hen running heavily and the lifeboat was early full of water , and scraping two or hrco rocks. It was smashed * o pieces. Moore ml Hllsou were washed ashore. A. Grosmlth , a first cabin passenger , wbn ays he belongs to Gutlford , hut had been ngaged In farming In the United States or ten years past , Is another ot the sur- Ivors. He said : "During the panic I umped overboard , swam about an hour and eached a rock. 'I tried to climb on It , but ho waves were too strong. I afterwards ound a raft with a sail on It , and I held up. ho 'sail with ono arm and floated toward' ho shore. While on the reft I was washed Ight over ono rock. Happily I ! iad on a life > elt and recovered the raft , which then truck another rock , to which I held faster or sometime.

Then ho and his officers will be transported to Cairo and there released. Franco may treat this a an act of war If she chooses. The recent events In Paris Increase the possibility that she may dose so , as the tendency Is stronger than ever to seek respite from Internal troubles by provoking an undoubtedly popular , though disastrous , war with England. The dispute will remain In a state of suspended animation until the French gov ernment receives Marchand's report , which Is now on the way down the Nile In a British boat , carried by one of Marchand's officers. It Is expected to reach Cairo about Tuesday , when It will be telegraphed by a French agent to Paris. The latest advices from Cairo state ( hat Marchand throws the responsibility entirely ou his government and that they do not suggest his recall , as was previously reported. Sulioro Hiittle. Copyright , 1S9S , by the Associated Press. ) LONDON. Oct. 15. The week opened with an ominous rattling of sabers over Fashoda and ended with the rumblings of a rcvolu- lonary volcano in Paris. The situation arising out of the question between Great Britain and Franco as to the Ight of occupying Fnshoda Is extremely grave. Everything hinges on the nature of ho report of Major Slarchand , the French [ ommander at Fashoda , which Is now on the way , thanks to the courtesy of the British government in permitting ono of Marchand's officers to use the British lines of commu nication. The evacuation of Fashoda by the Drench must , however , take place If war bo- ween Great Britain Is to be averted , as the marquis of Salisbury has nailed his colors o the most and cannot recede from the po sition he has taken up and Inwhich ho has received the unanimous support of the : ountry. The clear , strong speeches ot the lib eral readers Lord Rosebery and Mr. Asqulth coming at this critical moment were very important In that they demonstrated to the world that the liberal party Is solidly with the government lu the stand the latter has taken on the Soudan question. Mnt-t Maintain Hrltuiii'n Hlghta. The Sueakor , the organ of the liberal party , refers plainly this week to the Im- rjosslblllty of relinquishing the British claims and points out that If it comes to war , It will not bo merely for Fashoda but for the maintenance of Great Britain's place In the wori'd , plus her undoubted rights. The Sneaker adds : "If we abandoned our claims. Englishmen would not only lose the respect of others but would lose their own Kclf-resncct and English statesmanship would bo dragged In the mire. " These emphatic declarations of the Eng lish press and public men have already had a certain Influence across the channel and the Inspired statements of the French press belittle the Importance of Fashoda and shift the ground to an undefined claim upon the province of Bahr-cl-Ghazal aud a port on the Nile. The mouthpiece of the French government Is preparing France for the abandonment of Fashoda by asserting that Major Marchand overshot his goal and that Instead of going to Fashoda ho ought to have stopped at the confluence of the Bahr-el-Ghazal. Many people scout the Idea that Franco will be permitted to establish herself on the Bahr-cl-Ghazal , which U described as "the paying reef" of the Soudan. All the rest ol the reconquered territory as far as Fashoda U mostly desert ground which cannot be made to pay for many years to come. But the Bahr-el-Ghazal territory Is thickly popu lated and has magnificent trade prospects. During the governorshop of the late General Gordon Bahr-cl-Ghazel had Immense exports of Ivory , grain , beeswax , skins , etc , while It contained w hole forests of arrowroot. Bo. sides , the cotton grown there surpasses the Egyptian product. Frnnce IVuntit nuHHltt'n Help.

The Gaulols declares the time has ar rived for Russia to repay tha service whlcl Franco lent her In the far east by helplnf Franco against Great Britain , while thi Patrle , after declaring Franco had been be trayed by the Brlsson cabinet , demands thi dispatch of an ambassador to King Menclll of Abyssinia "for the purpose of sceklni an alliance with his 200,000 valiant , faith' ful warriors , who will co-oporato with ui 10 t'jO evr-nt of hostilities at Fashoda. " The moderate thinking section of tbi French press Is earnestly urging a peaci arrangement of the affair. These paper ; candidly admit 'that Franco Is no match fo Great Britain In the event ot war. There has been a great deal of talk hcri about the possibility ot war with Franci and various preparations upon the part o the British government are reported to havi been made. For Instance , It Is announced that a lead Ing small arms firm at Birmingham wa asked this week whether It was prepare * to turn out 1,000 inagazlno rifles weekly The significance ot this will bo appreciate ! when It Is pointed out that the British gov crnment works alone are capable of turn Ing out 4,000 magazine rifled weekly. It I also rumored that war Insurances have beei affected at Lloyds' during the last fev days , but they appear to have been more Ii the character ot bets -than trading.

Oct. 15. ( Now York World iablegram Special Tel eg mm. ) Ted Sloan as upset the traditions of the English turf 11 more ways limn by winning repeated vlc- orlcs at Newmarket on mounts that' the ayers , and most of the patrons of the meet- ng ring , regarded as having very slender banco of victory. The Newmarket meeting has always boon nown as "Tho headquarters of English aclng" and It has been patronUed by the mnrtest of the racing set , which Includes many of the greatest nunic.H In th # United kingdom. But It Is certain that no other iockey has received such attentions from Istlugtilshed persons ns were showered upon Sloan after his victory In the Middle ark yesterday. Sloan rode Lord William Beresford's Cal- nan and won a rattling race In a form that alned him. the npplauso of oven his com- letltors. As ho returned to the weighing com ho was surrounded by a number of women whose names show the cnthuulasni which the American Jockey has aroused by his work ou this side. There were the duchess ot Devonshire , Lady .William Uerceford , Lady Randolph Churchill , .vho . was Miss Jcnnlo Jerome of New York ; iady Curzon , the new vicereuc of India , and Qeorglana , countess ot Dudley. These five women , thu cream of the arls- ocracy , shook Sloan's hand and congratu- ntcd him upon his victory. He was pcr- 'ectly self-possessed nnd calmly courteous liut not too affable. Sloan Is thoroughly business like and does not look with favor upon feminine society when there arc races o bo won , even though It bo the most dlR- .tngutshed possible. Ho extricated hlmsell 'rom ' the admiring group as soon as polite ness would permit and disappeared In the weighing room. Sloan's head might easily be turned by the attention he hna received hero this spa- con If bo did not regard It as second ary to thy business ot winning races. He has received many handsome offers from the owners of racing stablrs , and there nre renewals of the minor that he may dr- clde to remain on this Bldo _ for ooxt sea son. The sporting papers continue to say the most complimentary things about his work. Sporting Life , commenting on Sloan's wonderful display yesterday , Hays : "When Caiman tired on the a¢ , Sloan's sharp ness and fiklll wore asserted In u fashion that only can bo described ns astonishing to ou- lookertt and confounding to his rivals. " The Sportsman nays : "Wo arc fairly con vinced that with such a wind Eloau could have non every other race with a mount having the slightest pretension of a chance. It was rucky for the other Jockeys that ho bad only three mounts. " ARMY OBJECTS TO DISBANDING Lender * Mny ISt-fuac to KoIIow the Advice of President MaiHO nnd Dlnnrm. NEW YORK , Oct. 15. A dispatch to tha World from Havana says : It Is generally believed that a ucrlnus breach has taken place between the executive department ot the Cuban republic and leaders of the mili tary forces. Word has been received here that General Wood at Santiago had received through Colonel , Bay a communication from President Macso advising that nothing b < done by Americans that can In any way ha construed as recognizing the Cuban govern ment. Masse has been joined by his col leagues in declaring that the time has ar rived for disbanding the Cuban forces. Ha advises all soldiers to return to their homes , there to resume labor as bciord thn Insur rection. Ho gives tbo assurance that In so doing they will serve their own best Inter ests and will bo safe In tbo hands of the Americans. This course will bo vigorously combated by General Gomez. Ganeral Juan Ducossc , ono of tbo closest advisers ot Gen eral ( lomez , arrived In Havana tonight to consult with opponents of President Mueto and all those who favor a Cuban rcpubllo and oppose further American Intervention. General Ducasso declares that Gomez will lead the Insurgents back Into the field be fore be will submit to disarming them whllt American and Spanish soldiers remain In Cuba. Colonel Warlng'a first Inspection of tin city filled him with surprise. The condi tions are much worse thau ho had ex pected. Everything la favorable for an out break of fever. Garbage remains In tha streets sometimes for days , though the Spanish authorities are making every effort to keep the fever In check. Tho. streets In many places are filled with festering matter. Last night hundreds of bushels of rotten potatoes were dumped at the foot of Oblspo street. Dr. Wilson told Colonel Waring that tha city was never In a condition more favor able for a yellow fever epidemic. In normal tlmen the deaths In Havana number about 30Q a week. They now average fully 100 n day. In Guanabacoa , a town of about 3,600 population , they are burying fifty every day. The deaths mostly result from pernicious fever , which In many ways resembles yel low fever.
