THE OMAHA T > ATLV , BEE : CONFIDENCE NOW RESTORED Exhibitors Take Hold with a View of Making Exposition a Success. EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE GETS TO WORK DrllRhlfnl Wrnllirr nml the Mrmtc Limn the In noon IlrliiR Ont n Gooil Mml Crorvil nt MRllt. Delightful weather made It a pleasure to do the exposition yesterday and a large number of the city people , together with Rome strangers , took advantage of the occa sion offered. After the rain of the previous night the grounds were In perfect condi tion. The verdure was fresh anil bright and the fragrance of the flowers lent a delight ful perfume to the atmosphere. Pcoplo who visited the grounds noticed that In the buildings there waa more ac tivity than during any of the previous days of the last two weeks. Exhibitors who had practically decided to leave their goods un packed and send them homo commenced work upon their booths preparatory to In- Malllng their exhibits , feeling confident thnt the now management will do everything pos- elble to make the future of the exposition A success. Clerks In the offices and employes about the grounds who heretofore have per formed their labors In a mechanical way , threw energy Into their efforts and worked with a will that In the past has been ab sent. During the morning all members of the executive committee , excepting Messrs. Hayden - den and Smyth , visited the grounds and dis cussed the needs of the departments over which they preside. They spent some time familiarizing themselves with the olllco work and then started on a tour of the buildings and grounds for the purpose of ascertaining Just what Is needed In the way of Improvements. The regular dally meeting of the execu tive committee was held during the after noon , at which routine matters -wore con sidered. Of this work there Is a vast amount to bo performed. Dills and vouch er * ; that have been accumulating during the last two weeks were examined and passed upon In order to clear the way for the new business that must bo taken up and disposed of within the next few days In order to promote the exposition and bring It more prominently before the people. It was whispered that before adjournment the committee would make some radical and Important changes In the personnel of the f working force. However , nothing waa done U In this direction , aside from discussing some changes that may possibly be made later on and after the new members of the commlt- . tee get thoroughly worked Into the harness. Finnic I'linn I IIP IlnKonn. The ovcnlnc program brought out a crowd of goodly proportions , the members of which nearly all lingered along the Lagoon or upon the Mldv. ay until the lights were turned off. The musical features of the ovonlne proved a rare treat In more ways than one. The management happily hit upon the plan of constructing a mlnla- turo war chip In the harbor at the cast end of the Lagoon. Jt was christened the Olyropla and Is presumed to resemble In pome particulars Admiral Dewcy's flagship. The craft , which Is securely anchored to the bottom of the Lagoon was gay In Its bunting and colored lights which hung from every mas' on the gundcck and formed a pretty picture , having for Its frame the white walls of the placid body of water , nrottnd which shone thousands of electric lights. ( Jodfrcy's band occupied the miniature war and during "the ev'enlifg"renderc'd a delightful program of rmmical numbers to the entire satisfaction of the thousands who hung over the rails of the Lagoon , or oc cupied the free seats , of which there were altogether too few , notwithstanding the fact that there were hundreds upon the Plaza which wore not In use. During the -progress of the concert some of the members of theindlan band ren dered a number of selections from the bal cony of the Colonial 'building ' , while at intervals , members of a mandolin club oc cupied one of the large boats and played several numbers AS they were rowed up and down the Lagoon. The general opinion prevails that the ' i' musical features of last night were the hit fV of the season , and It Is expected that the V program will be repeated at least once each week during the next couple of months. The ' .Missouri editors , nearly all of whom have remained over In the city , were upon the grounds last night , occupying scats at the head of the Lagoon. They were very much 'pleased ' with the entertainment of the evening and unhesitatingly expressed the opinion that the exposition will be a BUCCCKS. They have only words of pralso for the treatment received at the hands of the exposition officials and declare that when they return to their homes the col umns of their respective papers will bo filled with reports commending the enter prise to the attention of their readers. hr.CIlI3T SOCIUTIKS AHK ATVOIIK. .

The secret societies that arranged with the Exposition association to occupy the Nebraska building are moving In and fitting up the rooms , where they will .be . at homo to members and friends during the sum mer and until the close of tbo exposition. The building has been repaired , repainted and brightened up , both Inside and out. The Modern Woodmen of America Is the first of the secret societies to open head quarters. Members of the order have secured - cured space on tbo first floor and have placed O. C. Baldwin In charge. Sofas , easy chalre and plenty of reading matter make his rooms popular with the Wood men , who always visit him when upon the grounds , The register shows that the first and the last men to Join the order have been at the headquarters. The first man Is J. C. Hoot , a charter member of WE MUST REPEAT When Everybody in Omaha Tells the Same Story. It la bard to say now things about Dean's Kidney Pills. They euro the lame and ach ing back , the sufferer from kidney disorders and the troubles of those whoso urinary or ganism Is wrong tn its action , That they do this Is so easy to prove that not a vestige of doubt rc-malns. Public endorsement of local citizens is easily proven. Read this case : Mr. Wm. Cooper. No. 51S South 17th St. , employed at the Waterloo Creamery , says : "In February , 1S99 , I was taken with a severe case of the grip and It left me with ft lame and aching back especially bad mornings , when I could scarcely drag myself about , and it was a hard task to get dressed. My work requires me to stand In wet places at times and this had a tendency to make my back worse. Seeing Doan'e Kidney Pills adver tised , I procured them nt Kubn & Co.'s drug store. They completely cured me and did It quickly , " Roan's Kidney Pills are sold tor 50o per box by all dealers , or mailed on receipt of price by Koster-Mllburn Co. , Buffalo , N. V. .

As soon AS the other orders locate In the building social functions will he one of the features of the < season. It Is the intention to have dances ! at least once each week and socials quite | as frequently. j Inside the building and on the first floor ] there Is a fountain , from which cool water j Is continually flowing , while around this | nro placed stately palms and flowers.

The following additional Interviews show that the business men of Omaha arc well sat isfied with the new executive committee , all believing that the exposition Is now started on the road to success : J. II. Merchant The reorganization was ft good thing , as It stopped the squabbles and put better men In the directory. Joseph F. llllz The reorganization was oil right. D. II. Christie Since the exposition has been started It ought to be made a success. The records show that there were a few- men In the management before who were In It for what they could get out of It , and who did not have the Interests of the city at heart. The succeffl of the reposition Is the only consideration , and If it Is found that ono man cannot do the work expected of him he ought to bo got out of the way with out delay and a better man put In his placo. The changes have added good men. P. II. Myers The exposition ought to bo made a success and will certainly prosper better later In the ocason. A. Mandclberg The reorganization Is a good thing , as It seems to have restored harmony. The directory Is an able one n now constituted , but , It does not depend en tirely on a directory. If the railroads will now make rates and bring In the people the exposition will prosper. I hope they will , as the business the exposition was expected to bring In has not materialized as yet. If the people are not brought In the ablest directory In tho- world cannot make an exposition succeed. People's Furniture and Carpet Company The prospects of the exposition seem to b better than they were a few days ago , Then they were very discouraging. We are glad to see a prospect of success for It. C. II. Shaefcr If the reorganization helps the exposition we will all be glad that It was made. Anything to make the exposition succeed will be acceptable to the people. James Korsyth It waa the only salvation for the exposition and had to be done. II. H. Hardy Now that all controversies Bcem to have been dropped the possibilities of the exposition seem very promising. But RUCCCSS Is only possible if all arc united from now on lo bring It about. We have an exposition that Is worth seeing , and every one should assist In letting people know It. Every one In this part of the west should visit the exposition during the sea son , and most of them will If the right measures are taken. Personally I think an effort should bo made to attract large bodies of people who will add Interest to tlie ex position. For Instance , if the management should make the right sort of u proposition I have no doubt that the Omaha Shrlners might be Induced to organize a big special conclave at the exposition later in the sea son , which would bring at least 2,000 Ehrln- CTH from St. Joe , Kansas City , Leavenworth , the Dakotas , Iowa and Nebraska. This could bo made a very Interesting event , and It would bring thousands of people to the show In addition to the members of the or der. A few such schemes ae this would uot only boom the attendance , but would In spire Interest In the exposition outside of Omana , " D.M. . Havcrly I am confident that under the present management tho-exposition can be made a most successful undertaking. It is well worth seeing and the patronage from the territory Immediately tributary to Omaha ought to bo Immense during the fall. The new members of the executive commit- tco arc men wLose capacity and Integrity cannot bo questioned , and If they receive loyal support there is no reason why the exposition should not prosper. Charles D. Thompson I always believed that there was a great opportunity for the Greater America Exposition , and now I think the outlet Is more promising than ever before. H Is the second full page ad for Omaha and Nebraska. I am advertising ttie show myself , and I know that the people generally are quite familiar with Its fea tures. I have also learned that the feeling against the enterprise outside of Omaha is not half as general as we have been led to think. Andrew Klewlt What I think of the ex position under the present management Is Indicated by the fact that I went out yes terday and applied for exhibit space. The show Is nil right now and It will bo pushed to a successful conclusion. U. F. Hodgln There Is no abler man nor better hustler than Fred A. Nash In the western country , and he has a powerful In fluence in railroad circles. It looks to me as though there Is a probability that the railroads will make rates that will bring the people here , and that Is what makes an enterprise like the exposition successful. I expect to see n big attendance later la the season , and I think the situation Is now such tliat wo can all pull together. C. S. Loblngler I am gfad to see that the differences are healed over , as they seem to be. I take It that everybody will now turn In and \\crk for the success of the ex position. I never doubted that it could be made a suwess and was In favor of It even befo-e the close of the other exposition. M. A. Hall The men added to the ex ecutive committee , with the remaining mem- here , will command the confidence and re spect of the entire community. Regardless of the merits of the controversy , the peopta got the Idea that there were dissensions and trouble on the Inside and nniurally they lost faith in the enterprise. The exposition maybe bo a close corporation , but at the same time It has the good name of the city behind it and should it fall would do the city In calculable damage. Tbo people of distant parts of the country know nothing of the differences experienced locally , and It was essential that the latter bo eliminated. The new men will bring ability and energy to the help of the exposition and If they give their time to It will make it succeed , J. C. Wharton It's the salvation of the exposition. The way things were before the people had lost all faith In the business and thought it was on the down-grade. The people will have the greatest confidence In the new management and they will make the exposition a success , T. J. Mahoney Any sacrifice that will prevent one of the papers of the city from attacking the exposition and holding it up as a fake ought to be beneficial. The Bee was not justified In making Its attack on the exposition. It might have shown up the acts of certain men without attacking the whole organization , II , H. Baldrlge It Is gratifying that a harmonious outcome has been reached. The old management made many mistakes , but was seriously hampered by lack of support. I hope the exposition will be pushed through to u successful issue , and I think it will be. " Klnrliln KOilhlt. The balmy breezes of Florida cannot be transported , but an effort will be made at the exposition to present an Idea of the exotic beauty of Its vegetation. Fred Pfelf- fcr will bring to the exposition In the cour e of a few weeks a truly beautiful exhibit. The orange , the lemon , the palmetto and the banana tree will bo set up In all the beauty of their luxuriant growth in a cor ner of the Agricultural building. One of j tclUAU ill be b.uIU ttttl enthral and Invite to slumber like 'he grove < I of the magic lotus. Tobacco will grow and dcltcloua pineapples Invite the palate , and clumsy alligators wilt bask In the water. Mr. Pfelflcr has gone to henry expense personally to secure his exhibit. He has made a most comprehensive survey of the products of the state and has spared no effort to make the display a good one. There j ' is to be a fine showing of woods grown In the forests and of grain and wines , and of cakolln and fuller's earth , from which the dellcflte ceramics are melded which adorn halls of foreign princes , the products of the palmetto , flowers , jellies , marma lades , sugar cane , sponges , cotton , fish all presented in an Interesting way.

While there are eome minor details which have not yet been worked out , the exhibit made In the Woman's department on the second floor of the 'Manufacturers' building Is attracting the attention of all who visit the exposition these days. The department is In charge of iMIss Mary Falrbrothcr , .who . has worked for months to accomplish what now seems possible that of having a de partment where women will find an exhibit In which everything will be of Interest. The Women's department will occupy the entire second floor of the building In which It Is located. There will bo the booths In which the various articles are located. . Then there will be a model kitchen , parlors and reception rooms and a restaurant where the most palatable food and dainties will be served at n nominal cost. Already most of these features have been added to the de partment and are In operation. Women are present constantly during the day entertain ing , instructing in the arts and performing thotr various duties. In the west end of the north gallery a lace department haa been established , where domestic and foreign laces arc ehown In large quantities and ondlcsa varieties , from the common stuff that would retail from 5 cents up to that that would command $100 per yard If on sale. Close by the lace department Is a space devoted entirely to the exhibition of em broidery and fancy work. In this there are some beautiful designs In etlk worked on linen. There are also specimens of drawn tvork and patchwork , besides an exhibition of work done by old women , none of them less than sixty years of age. Further up the gallery Is a magnificent display of pictures , reproductions of the moat famous artists , and many of them com ing from abroad. In this collection may be seen the pictures owned by Mrs. McShanc , secured while In Europe. There are scores of views of the ancient buildings In Rome and Athens , together with photographs of the famous men and women who died centuries ago. ago.Another Another department that Interests the women Is that where chlnawaro Is painted. In this skilled artists are constantly at work decorating dishes In the most dainty colors. There le also a kiln where the colors are burned In after being spread upon the dishes. The exhibit of the State Normal school Is on the way and will be put In place as soon as It arrives. This , like many of the other departments , will be educational and will be Interesting to the young as well as old. HAWAIIAN'S AT THE EXPOSITION. IV III He Here Enrly Next Week. Twenty-eight natives of the Hawaiian Islands landed In Victoria , British Co lumbia , on Thursday , and are on the way to Omaha. This roundabout way has been necessitated on account of the strict quarantine observed at San Francisco. These natives have been selected with a view to the best amusement. Among them are the best swimmers and divers , as well as the beat dancing girts on the Island , In all there will be some twelve tons of freight , consisting of native fishing canoes , huts , curlofi , a supply of tarral , with which ex- 'hlbttlons of pol making will be given. They also have the necessary articles for the na tive luau or feasts. This Is a system of cooking followed by the natives , and Is ono of the barbarous customs that have corao through the perfecting process of civiliza tion unscathed. It consists' In so cooking meats that the flavor Is not allowed to escape. A trench Is first dug and lined wltn a peculiar kind of stone found only In the Islands. A hot fire Is then built In the trench , and when the stones have been properly heated the flro Is removed and the oven lined with the tops of the taro plant , both to give a flavor aad to keep the meat from the stones. Then a suckling pig , most generally. Is laid In the trench and covered with n rayer of siones j and the whole Is covered with earth. The suckling is allowed to roast , and when placed ' on the table Is declared to be the most \ savory dish , flt for a king. This , with poi , n dish prepared from taro , constitutes the native feast. A lake large enough to float the canoes will be dug on the exposition grounds. An | Idea may be secured from the swimming j how the native boys swarm around the Incoming - coming steamers and dive for small pieces of money thrown to them from the decks of the vessels. Swimming Is a pastime through out the entire year in the Islands. Among the Islanders Is a native band , and they will provide music for the village and accompany the girls In their hutu dance.

Seven thousand of the bricks taken from Llbby prison arrived at the Government building yesterday and were placed on exhi bition. While they are only bricks , each one has a history , as the bricks In this famous old prlean were brought from Kng- land. land.Llbby Llbby prison , It will be remembered , was In Richmond , Va. , and was used by the con federates during the war of the rebellion as a place for the confinement of union pris oners. Prior to Its use for this purpose it was a tobacco warehouse. The Llbby prison war museum exhibit In the Government building Is proving to be one of the drawing cards and there are many people who regard It as being more Interest ing than the government exhibit of last year. It contains many antiquities , as well as thousands of exhibits of modern times. The Washington , Lincoln and Garfleld rellca seem to Interest both young and old , who go there to study American history. The lay figures received from the War department - partment have arrived and have been put In place. They show all the uniforms worn by both officers and soldiers from revolution ary times down to the present date , In cluding the several branches of the army. WORK OX ACRICnTIJRAI ; , KYIIIIIITS llnoiir County Prcparm tn Slioiv tlin Product * nf the Soil. Yesterday C. A. Drake of Albion arrived and Immediately commenced the work of constructing the booth In which the products of Boone county will be displayed In the Agricultural building. He secured thirty- two feet front on the main aisle , north i side , running back to the rear wall. In side . ( he .booth , grains and vegetables will be exhibited , a fresh stock being constantly on hand. The front of the booth will be ornamental , constructed upon the gothlc plan. This front will be covered with sheaf grain and grasses. Speaking of exhibiting here. Mr. Drake said : "In the start our people made some objections to putting In a display , but as coon as they realized the amount of adver tising that they -will receive , they took bold of the matter , and If I am not mis taken , we will have one of the best PX- hlblts Sii the building. We have the land , Llie soil ial Ue croducts , aad there Is no. reason why we cannot carry off the bis prize. That Is what we are here for. and during the entire season of the exposition we hall work with this object In view. " Douglas county Is getting its exhibit Into presentable shape and within the next ten days It Is thought that vegetables and other products grown , this season will bo placed j upon the tables. A number of the farmers have -been In to see Superintendent Walsh , I and all of them say that they will co-1 operate with the exposition nnd do all in j their power to again convince the world [ that this Is the garden spot between the | two oceans. Since H. J. Pcnfold took charge of the Agricultural department , he has considered ; a number of plans for pushing It to the j front. He says that he Is determined to fill | every available Inch of space In the buildIng - ' Ing before the end of this month. With other members of the executive com mittee , he Is contemplating loaning funds to counties that want to come In and ex hibit. The plan Is to advance the money necessary to construct booths and Install exhibits , and 4hcn deduct the sum so ad vanced from the premiums earned when the distribution is made. IIKCOMHS A ISII1-JAT KISIIIXG RESORT Spurt AVhleli tlie Olllclalx of the E.\- lioMltliin Propone to Slop , The Lagoon on the exposition grounds is filled with Ilsh. In size they range from the smallest minnows up to fries that tip the scales nt n couple of pounds each. Last fall when the government officials placed n lot of crapplcs , perch , pike and bass in the- Lagoon , little did they think that this season the place would be a fa mous fishing resort. It Is , however , such a place , 'but It will not be so long , for the exposition officials have decided to Immedi ately stop the slaughter of the members of the finny tribe. In fact the guards have been Instructed to arrest each and , every person found fishing In the Lagoon. The little body of water Is fairly alive with fish and half a dozen restaurants on the grounds have been supplying their tables with fish caught there. Dally men may be seen around the banks of Lagoon , catching the fish In nets. Their method Is this : They construct dip nets , which they attach to the end of poles. Armed with these and loaves of bread , they march down to the Lagoon , toss the bread Into the water , and await results. Soon after the bread strikes the water the fish congregate around It and then the fishermen begin the harvest. They slip their nets under the school and bring them up filled with fine fish. Of course the smaller ones are thrown back Into the water , but the larger ones are taken away. Not only do visitors , but exhibitors as well , de nounce this as a ruthless destruction of one of the features of the exposition , and consequently quently the exposition officials have decided to put a stop to It.

Speaking of the Greater America Expcsltlon Mr. Sutherlln said : "Tho buildings and grounds look familiar , the only change 'being that they seem more beautiful than last summer. Of course , the buildings are a little dingy , but the grounds are de lightful. One seawn has brought about a great change In the vegetation , which seems so fresh and bright. Regarding the exposi tion , I believe that it will be a great success and that later on good-sized crowds will be In attendance. It is too early to expect a large attendance , but after farmers secure their crops I believe that many of them will come to Omaha. " llore Kvlilbltor * oil tinfJroimel. .

There was one man on the exposition grounds yesterday who thought that ho had a sure-thing snap and that he was going home $10 richer than when hn started out to take In the Midway. This man , who came from Iowa , dropped Into the concession where Lunette files through the air and after watching her evolutions for a few minutes walked up to the manager and offered to bet $10 that he could do the same work. The manager Informed him that bet ting la prohibited , but nevertheless told him that ho could earn $10 by performing the Illusion. The lowan was .conducted behind the scenes and machinery was started , but Instead of giving an exhibition of his dexterity as an Illusionist ho let out a scream that would have caused a Sioux In dian to turn green with envy and , seeking , the back door , escaped , falling to return and demand his money. The high divers furnished a host of amuse ment for visitors yesterday and last evening. The man who dives from the scaffoM , erected ninety-five feet above the water , attempted for the first time In his llfo to turn four somersauirts In mld-alr. Ho accomplished what be undertook and was greeted with a great round of applause. Bach somersault was clear cut and the last one landed the diver In the pond squarely upon his feet. The Artist's Studio enjoyed a great run of business last evening and until the lights were turned off. Artist Troy S. Klnney and his understudy , C. L. Sherman , were kept busy. As soonas one exhibition was con cluded another was put on , and so It con tinued all the evening , The place is be coming a resort for the society people , who enjoy going ( here lo see the real transferred to the canvas.

Omaha out he concluded that ho is as Ignorant as other mortals. John comes from the rural districts and yesterday was Ills first time upon the Midway. The first place that he struck was the swing and as the thing looked harmless enough and cheap he con cluded that he would do a little swinging. He got In and the thing started. John had been in rooms where the bed went around , but he had never tackled , a place where the bed and 'the whole thing seemed to turn all the time , and that In opposite directions. After the revolution had been about half completed and Just at a time when John thought that he was standing on his head his heart came Into his mouth and he let go , expecting to fall Into space. However , he was considerably surprised when ho dls- ] covered that he did not move from his seat. I Few people , even here In Omaha , have an Idea of the sights that may bo seen from an elevation of 350 feet In the air. There Is one place where these sights may be seen and that is from the See-Saw. By taking this ride one with a field glaeo may see half a dozen towns over In Iowa , fifteen In Ne braska and on a clear day one In Kansas , When In the basket and when it has reached its greatest height the country , dotted with farms and fields , has much the appearance of an enormous checker board. A carload of snakes has arrived at the Cuban village and today they will be trans ferred from the shipping boxes to the glass cases -which they will occupy. In the cargo there are over 200 different varieties , includ ing all of the reptiles known to Cuba and Porto Rico. These snakca are not trained , but Instead arc in the same condition as those which move about in the mountains and jungles of the Island , "Have you had your hand read at the Tempfo of Palmistry ?
