W. II. II. Price , the last of the builders of the old Lincoln car , now exhibited at the Transmlsslsslppl exposition by the Union Pacific railroad , died at his home near Fort JlcPherson , Ga , on Octobci 8 , and his re mains were burled on October 12. H had licen his hope to visit the exposition and again see the historic relic that he helped to build , but during his Illness of the last eight weeks he was forced to give this up. Throughout the last jcar he had frcU ( ] ntly written to The Bee concerning the old car find his deslro to sec It restored to a condi tion similar to that In which It left the shops when built In one of his last letters to The Bee ho spoke of the car and his do- elre to see It In affectionate terms , and sale Jio would while here endeavor to see 1 something could not be done toward pre serving the national relic It was through Ills letters to The Bee that this paper was enabled a short time ago to present the firs true history of the Lincoln car ever pub lished. The deceased was born In Cllzabothtown Pa. , on November 16 , 1810. He served his apprenticeship In car building at the Penn oylvanla railroad shops at Ilcnlvu , Pa When the war of the rebellion broke out ho enlisted In the union army , but served only a short time , accepting tha position of fore man of the government car shops at Alex andria , Va. During the latter part of 1803 lie was Instructed to build n private car for President Lincoln , and the car was com- jilctod shortly before the president was as sassinated. H Is generally believed that this car was used to convey President Lincoln to the front of military operations during the iwar and was protected bj sheet Iron. These /also notions about the car wcro corrected l > y Mr. Price , who said that the first trip the car made after leaving the shops was to convey the i cumins of the president to Springfield , ill ( ictM Into IviitisiiH City * KANSAS CITY , Oct. 1C Arrange ments have been protected whereby the Leavcnworth , Kansas & Western railway -will run Its trains Into Kansas City from Lcavenworth over the Missouri Pacific.

Ten splendidly wrought brass cannon from Santiago do Cuba have recently been placed In position near the front of the Government ! building An expert has examined them and pronounced them remarkably fine specimens of ancient cannon. They were all manufac tured In the gun factory of Douay , France. Hvery gun has Its name placed well to the front About twelve Inches below the name Is this legend In Latin. "Lltlmn Hatio Ileguin" ( The last argument of kings ) Be low this Is the name of some member ot the house of Bourbon , the ones more frequently occurring being those of "Louis Auguste dc Bourbon , " "Due du Maine" nnd of "Louis " " ' " " d'Aumate.

Three llcur-de-lls nro emblazoned on the shield , which Is sur rounded by the collar of St. Louis. Just be neath the shield Is one of the oldest and most valued decorations of the nnclentl re Kline , the Cioss of St. Louis. This entire de sign , exquisllely wrought , rests against a backgtouud of flags draped above gun car riages and piles of cannon balls. Here a band of btonze cnchcles the gun. Then thu a la a graceful scroll bearing the motto. "Nee Plurlbus Impar" ( Unequaled among many ) . Beneath this Is n woman's head cen tered In a glory composed ot the rnvs ot the HUU nt full noontide. The last piece of flno ornamentation on the gun Is a reproduction of the royal arms as described above , except that the device Is a llttlo larger. Each gun haa two handles made of two dolphins , every scale and tin being beautifully reproduced In the bronze. The patient artisan did not stop with this highly ornnto barrel of the mag nificent gun , but made the icar end to re semble a powerful female head , presumably the famous Gorgon head which adorns the aogls of Minerva.

Sometimes flic name Douay Is Litlnl/ed Into "Dttacl " to accord with " " , perhaps the "fecit , which word these guns founders Invariably used. As these are French guns of the date In dicated , the supposition hero is that Wiey weio the guns captured from Napoleon Bona parte during his dlsastious campaign In Spiln. As weapons of war , thq beautiful old flcldplecrs are worse than useless nnd more dangerous to those handling them than to those aimed at , but as works of art and us souvenirs of rare historical value they are easily flist among similar possessions of this republic.

They had provided themselves with a full oulflt of clothing and had still moro In hiding at their homes , where $75 worth was later recovered by detectives. The-y had can led on their pll- ferlngs on a modest scale In the hope that the articles would not be missed from the stock , but n few da > s ago the proprietor cnmo to the conclusion thnt other people besides customers were carrying away his goods. Ho reported his suspicion at the police station and Detectives Dillon and Welsen- berg were detailed to spend a. portion of each night In the store. For several nights they watched without discovering anything wrong , but early yesterday morning they heard an upper window softly swing open. The window la about ten feet from the floor nnd Is hung on a hinge opening upon an outer staircase. The detectives waited and presently a young man climbed through and , hanging by his hands , dropped upon a pllo of overcoats underneath.

While It Is not an exhibit , one of the moat Interesting things seen at the exposi tion shoeing the development of the trnns- mUfllsalppI country Is an old map of the United States , owned by Gilbert 13. Purple , publisher of the Tloga County Herald , I Newark Valley , N. Y. Mr. 1'urple was at the exposition last week on his way home I from a visit with relatives In the western portion of Nebraska and while there ho so-j cured this old map The map Is of date of 1S33 and was published by J. Carpenter of New York City It H In colors , appear ing much like the maps of the present day , j showing the lines of latitude and longitude and having a scale of miles. The map shows twcnty-fl\e states and four territories The states are those east of the Mississippi river , with the exception of Wisconsin and Michigan , which were then teirltorles. Arkansas on the map Is desig nated as a territory , while all of the coun try to the north of Missouri Is designated as Missouri territory All of that section to the west IB given the name of the Great American desert , arid and tin fit for habita tion or cultivation. Out In the viclnty of Colcfrndo and to the 'wust the map Indi cates that there arc mountains , but the niapmaker has added that the country Is unexplored. Wisconsin Is known by the names of Oulsconsln territory , while Ne braska has no name or place. Along the shores of Lakes Huron , Michi gan and Superior , there are no towns , though at the extreme western end of the last named lake there Is a star and the statement that at this point the American Fur com pany has a station. Along the south end of Like Michigan and at a point where the city of Chicago Is now situated , the section of the country Is marked off as be longing to the Pottawnttamle Indians. Their reservation extends over into Indiana and well down toward Indianapolis. South of their reservation the country belongs to the Klckapoos , according to the map mark- Ings. The Mlamls and Ottawas occupy about all of the territory of Michigan , the Chip- pew as and Wlnnebagoes appear to hold ( sway In what Is now Wisconsin Regard ing the Indians west of the Mls ourl river , the map maker says It la said that there arc numerous tribes , but admits that he Is unable to learn anything concerning them , as the country has not been visited by white men and there Is no data relative to Us In habitants or general character. According to the map , In 1833 there were no towns on the west bank of the Missis sippi above St. Louis , with the exception of a point designated as Lead Mines , lo cated where the city of Dubuque , la , now stands. On the Missouri river the map shows no settlements or towns north of Jefferson CItv. Omaha Is not on the map , not oven the old trading post at Bellcvue being shown. Railroads are even scarcer than towns , as there la but ono upon the nap. It runs from Philadelphia out to Colombia , In Pennsylvania Canals , how ever , are numerous and appear to connect many of the principal towns of the middle states.

Although the Jubilee week of the exposi tion Is past , there Is no Indication hat public Interest will abate. The remainIng - Ing days are amply provided with features of wide and commanding Interest and with the certainty of lower railroad rates than have been made at any time since the show opened , the management Is confident that nothing but the most severe weather can prevent the last two weeks from being ono of the most profitable periods of the exposition. During the present week the program offers every Incentive to a heavy attendance * . The low railroad rates will leave no excu&e for anyone to stay away and they will undoubtedly bring thousands of people for a second visit. From now on It will be nearly as cheap to come to the exposition as to remain at home and the big show will not be a dead Issue until the gates close early on the morning of November 1. Today Is Odd Fellows' day and North Dakota day. The latter event Is not ex pected to draw more than a few hundred people on Its own account , but the Odd Fellows expect to rally In Immense numbers. They have planned an claboiate celebra tion that will occupy the greater portion of the day and assurances have been re ceived of the participation of several thou sand members of the order from Nebraska , Iowa and adjacent states. They will meet at Fourteenth and Dodge streets at 10 30 this morning and march to the srounda. Lunch will bo the first order of business and at 1 o'clock they will congregate In the Auditorium , where the exercises of the day will occur , as follows : Music Omaha Concert Hand Addicss President G W Wattles Address Mayor Frank 1C Moores AddressGrand Grand Muster Charles A. Patterson Addrews . Irond Representative George L Loomts At 4 o'clock there will be a grand parade of all the lodges , which will bo reviewed by the grand olllccrs on the Plaza and In the evening there will he a special fireworks display In honor of the order. The exercises lu honor of North Dakota day will be some what less elaborate and will bo held In the Agricultural building at 11 o'clock. Tuesday Is German day , Ancient Order of United Workmen day and Tennessee day. The latter celebration will be comparatively Informal , but there will be a big attend ance of Workmen and the Germans have or ganized ono of the most elaborate parades that have been projected on the grounds. It will arrive at the grounds at 2.30 and the exorcises of the day will occur In the Auditorium half an hour later. The celebration of Nebraska day Wednes day and the extremely low rates that have been niado by the railroads promise to roako It ono of the biggest days of the week. The Missouri lead people have also arranged a celebration and the same day haa been set asldo for the official enter tainment of the live Block men. Thursday also has n triple feature In the celebration of Denver day , Order of the Kaatern Star day and Utah day. The ex tent of these celebrations haa not been determined on , but assurances have been received that several of the bishops of the Mormon church , as well 01 other digni taries , will come to assist In the observance of Utah day. Friday Is Apple day and Sat urday Is , eo far , without feature. KmiNim MtnileiiiH llrliiR n Ilnnil.

ONE OF THE NCW YOHKHHS. Olio More llulier Seorliijj. There remains but one more butter scoring contest before the close of the exposition. This will probably come on duilng the mid dle of the last week of the month and the Indications are that there will be more but ter exhibited at that time than upon any former occasion. ThlsJs-due to the fact that the cool weather Is favoraOTe for good butt'r making and also due to the fact that all of the butter ehown at a scoring IB purchased by some local dealer , who will pay from 1 to 2 cents above the-top market price and not ask any questions regarding quality or Quantity. So far Minnesota has been very fortunate In securing prizes. It has won the gold medal that goes with the sweepstake , having taken three out of five premiums In the big show. During the last two scorings the but- tnr makers of the state have taken fifty-five medals on butter that has scored above 95 oer cent. .a Iny I' The following program Is announced for the Nebraska day exercises Wednesday : Music , Omnha Concert Hand Invoentlon .Chancellor George n M.icLenn Muslu Concert Waltz .

On the night of August 15 the city council passed an ordinance granting a twenty-five years' franchise to the Omaha Qua coin- panv it was stated nt that time by rep resentatives of the company that work would commence inside of thirty dtvs and that customers would be supplied before cold weather set In It Is now two months slnco thu passage of the ordinance and not a trench has been dug. Prior to the passaga of the last ordinance representatives of the Citizens' Oas company obtained an Injunction agilnst the Omaha Gis company on the ground tint the fran chise of the latter company was defective. I'rom what can be learned It appears that this Injunction still holds until the supreme court decides the case , even though a new franchise were obtained By the terms of the Injunction the Omaha Gas compiny was restrained from opening streets or laying mains here , so that until this case comes up for a final hearing there is little likeli hood of the Omaha company commencing operations. Officers of the Citizens' Gas company are not prepared to commence work just now and the chances are that It will bo some time before the stores on N street arc Illuminated with gas. The recent Improvements nt the local electilc light plant have Improved thla service so much that a great manv people have lost Interest In the gas problem. llrpnlrltiu TMi'iiljPoiii'lli M ! < < . Repairs to the asphalt pavement on Twenty-fourth street are progressing rap- Idly. While the -weather has been almost too cool for the successful laying of asphalt , the work done so far has been entliely sat isfactory to the city engineer. Acting un der Instruction from the city council Kngl- ncer Heal Inspects the work several times n day Not only does he do this , but ho marks the places on the pavement which must be repaired. When this work Is com pleted and accepted by the city It Is thought that the $1.000 guaranty will bo released. Barrett and some other members of the council favor demanding an exlenslon of the guaranty for the reason that a portion of the pavement was laid too hard , couso- rt'uc-ntly It will not wear as long as that laid with more oil The stretch of pave ment particularly complained of Is on the west side of Twentvfourth street from Ate to J streets. An effort will be made , It Is understood , to have the paving company agree to extend the guaranty on this stiotch or else take It up and relay It next spring. CiillN Attention to Stock . The stock yards company Is sending out hundreds of postal cards to stockmen all over the west calling attention to the stock show at the exposition. Particular men tion Is made of the special purse of $1 000 which has been offered by Manager Kenyan for the best bacon hogs. These hogs will bo Judged from a packer's standpoint by bujcrs from the stock yards A long bodied , thin hog , weighing In the neighbor hood of 200 pounds , Is the kind of an ani mal required to produce lean bacon and small , lean hams The demand for this kind of meat Is constantly on the Increase and an effort Is being made to Induce hog raisers In this section to breed this kind of an animal. Twenty-one raisers of bacon hogs have exhibits at the exposition and the display Is considered an exceptionally good one. lloNiiltnl Ufport. Mrs. John L. Martin , secretary of the South Omaha Hospital association , has Issued a report showing the donations for August and September and also the number of pa tients received and discharged. Armour & Co. sent a check for $114.75 to pay for the treatment of patients from January 1 to the end of September and Manager Kenyon of the stock jards company sent a donation of $50. Twelve patients were received In August and three discharged. In September six patients were received and nine dls charged. A meeting of the hospital association will bo held at the hospital on Tuesday after noon at 2.30 o'clock. Hoard of I'lliieiUlon. An adjourned meeting of the Board of Education Is on the bills for tonight. It Is expected that the contractors will formally turn the new building over to the board. In case this Is done there may be some dis cussion about the liability for the delay. Certain members of the board hold that the contractors can bo held for $10 per day for each day's delay since September 12 , while others do not think this Is possible owing to the fact that no bonus was offered the builders. Most of the new seats are In post tlon and It Is thought that all of the new rooms will be ready today or tomorrow. Chloroform Cnunt-H 111 * Dentil. Drs. Schlndel and Davis held an au topsy on the remains of Arthur Shi Ivor Saturday night.
