He did not sing about street fairs nor carnivals, but it Is believed he had them in mind when he wrote the lines. Anyway, the merry making at the Oriental Ak-Sar-Ben Btreet fair and carnival is taking on tangible form, the thousands are spending their money, throwing confetti, jostling elbows good naturedly and venting their exuberant spirits at the great open air enterprise. The thousand and, one attractions, both free and otherwise, were enjoyed to the limit yesterday. There is something to interest everyone, from the three-throws-for-flve to the Douglas County Agricultural society's exhibit. Shows for the musically inclined, shows for the people who enjoy myeterious "ana welcd, sights, shows for those who like to Je 'freaks; liv short, It Is tho most cosmopolitan city this side of Ban Francisco, Is the Ak-8ar-Ben carnival and street fair. ' A pleasing change was wrought on the grounds yesterday, In that the work of J installing the shows and boo'ths was carried on under n full head of steam, so that by evening the placa was a bee hive of In. dustry. The afternoon crowd was larger than, that of the day before and by 9 o'clock 4.5CO hnd passed through the stiles. Nearly 1,005 -came after 9 o'clock. ..... The free attractions' were' fclven s adver tised, and mapy pleasant comments were passed .uO the' merits of this- year s free attractions. Leonxo, the famous comedy ' Juggler, gave two exhibitions at 3 and 8 p. m. Leonso almost defies the law of gravitation with his startling feats of bal ancing. He will appear again today at the same hours. . The second free act, given at :S0 and 8:80 p. m., is performed by Herr Schmidt and Miss Myrtle Hefner. This act Is pronounced by the critics as being the climax of all sensational features. Mr. Schmidt supports on his shoulders a cycle whirl upparatuwetghing over a ton und Inside of wfctliia a saucer track on which Miss Heffier fides at top speed on a IJcycle. yascatnl gives at 4 and 9 p. m. a novel exhibition of midair contortion work on a pedestal. Melville," famed on two contl ' nents, appears at 4:S0 and 9:30 p. m. in acrobatic work par excellence. All his work Is done on high rigging and without nets. He concludes wth a. daring "loop for life" that makes the cold chills run up and down the spines of the spectators. In their entirety ' the free shows have been pronounced ' as meritorious. Shows that Cost Money. Usual "free show In the lobby" fea tures are given this year and many have been heard to remark that this feature alone is worth twice the amount of the admission. One of the most interesting of the paid shows le the ."Old Plantation," whloh was liberally V patronised last evening, "The beet show lvet-iaw" Is what everyone aia as toey, came out of the concession. Negro singers give the sweet folk songs of the southland In a manner as only thoy can.

All the horsemen at the South Omaha stock yards will today decorate their steeds with the Ak-Sar-Ben colors and It Is thought the fad will be taken up in Omaha. The Douglas County Agricultural society exhibits have nearly all been Installed, so that today admirers of large pumpkins may fill their eyes with the best, the soil affords. Today the finishing touches will be put on the carnival grounds and a still larger crowd Is expected on the third da? of the big show.

Josephus Jltta, professor In the University of Amsterdam, and Dr. Melll, professor In the University of Zurich. In a brief review of the results attending The Hague conferences Dr. Jltta said: Between 1893 and ISM four conferences of European nations were held at The Hague In order that a unification of private Inter national law, that is, the law of private relations of men of various countries, might be secured. The conferences have led to four treaties, namely, on civil proce dure, validity, of 'marriage, divorce and guardianship; while four other treaties are prepared In draft. The most Important treaties have been put In force In the Netherlands, France, Germany and Sweden and as a result the European continent Is entering upon a new era of prosperity. Tho conferences have afforded a working body of men with a form for collective legisla tion In civil matters, and a valuable be ginning of such legislation. The partici pation of all the civilized nations of the world to further conference that such legislation may be universally enacted Is a matter pf serious consideration. Talk of ' Bsklnsr 'PoiVder. .

On the drag, guided by Fred English: Miss Moore of Council Bluffs, Miss Bessie Brady, MIbs Cole, Miss Webster, Harvey Clayton and A. S. Rogers. The five-ln-hand business caused more than a few breathless moments, but the merry bark of the Toronto terrier, which proved his gameness by going in heavily for the lunch, and the melodious tooting of the horn, won out over the anxiety. Mr. A. D. Brandels,. Mr. Fred Meti and Mr. Edward W. Hart of Council Bluffs were the ring committee. The Judges were the same as usual. Mr. W. H. McCord an nounced that he has given a $100 cup for the winner of a special class of non-win-nnlng local roadsters. Tonight the Judges will engage in a potato race and much sport Is expected from it. Other special features also will be upon the card for (he remaining performances. One of the prettiest as well as popular events last night was the riding of Dr. W, M. Stelner's famous high school horse, Rex Squirrel, by Miss Byrne, the daughter of Mr. T. C. Byrne. Dr. Stelner's horse Is a Jet black beauty and Miss Byrne wore a smart black habit, with a cap of the Tam O'Shanter variety. She put the Squirrel through his gaits and to ragtime In very neat style. Folk wing this special exhllil tlon Thomas H. Bass gave another wonder ful display of the grace and rythym pos slble in a horse with the peerless Lime- atone Belle as the medium. The show opened with the single park horses In heavy harness, the favorite, Km press, owned by Crow & Murry, getting the decision, ' which was hard to reach. Crelghton, . a former Omaha ' horse,' now owned by the Pepper stables, took seoond, while Hoxle B, the Tlchenor stables repre sentative, with W. H. McCord driving, carried away the yellow ribbon. , Mr. Car ting's King Lee and Crow & Murry's Show Girl pressed the winners close. -Jack O'Dlamonds, owned by Thomas Dunn of St, Louis, handled . by Thomas Baas, drew first in the combination class and the crowd liked the verdict, though Rule's Artist Rex and Bon-Ton, an animal owned by J. B. Iman of South Omaha, second end third, respectively, were much admired. Three local teams entered In the class suitable for town work, hitched to depot wagon or broughams, and while Arthur D. Brandels' coal black geldings, Dick and Fred, got first money, A. C. Smith's Fire fly and Erie had them crowded harad. Dick and Ned, the J. H. Evans pair, teemed a trifle Blower in action than the others and with lee, style. If omens may count for anything poli ticians might take cognisance of the fact that Teddy Roosevelt (Don C. Riley of St. Joseph) won the event for pacing stallions, mares or geldings. He was the only for eign entry in the class. The entrance of Tom Dennlson, driving Dandy Jee !n his (1,009 speed wagon, met with a burst of applause and still another when the red rib boa' was conferred upon It. W W.

CURXEY rina of British Secretary Who Violated Massachusetts State Law Bemitted. STATEMENT MADE BY GOVERNOR BATES Question Sever Raised Before In His State and Asks that Ambassador Be Informed of the1 Facts. B08TON, Sept. 29 After allowing time for communications In the Phelps-Gurney case to reach Washington, Governor Bates today made public various letters bearing on the subject. The governor Informed the Stats depart ment that the judgment against Third Sec. retary Gurney of the British embassy hnd been vacated and the fines Imposed are remljted. He says that Judge Phelps had expresesd regret to the secretary by letter, a copy of which he forwarded, together with a statement by Judge Phelps. Gov ernor Bates suggested that the attention of the British ambassador be called to the breach of the laws of Massachusetts, under the belief that the ambassador will take such action as the case may require. The governor also expresses regret that want of knowledge of the law has resulted In an error of Judicial authority in Massa chusetts and expresses the hope that state. ment of regret by Judge Phelps may be recognised as a conclusive disavowal of any intention of Massachusetts court to Ignore International law. Jadare Phelps' Explanation. The letter ot Judge Phelps to Acting Governor Guild Is us follows: LEE, Mass., Sept. 28. Ills Honor, Curtis Guild, i-ieuienani Governor, Ailing uov ernor, State House, Boston Sir: in re sponse to our telegram, I have the honor to submit the following statement in re gard to the proceedings In the case of Hon. Hugh Gurney, tli.ri secretary of his Britannic majesty's embassy. Mr. Gurney was arraigned before this court for run ning an automobile through the streets of Stockbridge In violation of section 8. chapter 4i3, of the ucis of '.ne common wealth of Massachusetts of 1903, which sec tion Is as follows: "Section k-Nn automobile or motorcycle shall be run on any public highway or private way laid out under the authority of statutes outside the limits of a city or inicaiy semea or Dusiness part oi a town or lire district at a speed exceeding fifteen miles an hour, or within a city or the thickly settled or business part of a town or fire district at a speed exceeding ten miles an hour. Upon approaching a cross ing or Intersection ways, also In traversing a crossing or Intersection and in going around a corner or a curve in the hlghway, every person operating an automobile or motorcycle shall run it at a rate of speed less than that heretofore specified and at no time greater than Is reasonable und proper, having regard tq traffic and the use of the way and the safety of the public and in no event exceeding eight miles an nour. Mr. Gurney refused to plead to the charge and I thereupon ordered a plea of "not guilty" to be entered. Evidence was then presented, satisfying me beyond a reason. able doubt that the offense had been com mitted 3 charged. Accordingly 1 round Mr. Gurney guilty and sentenced him to pay a fine of $25. The statements made by Mr. Ourney be fore the court were of such a f i-acter as to appear to me to be a manii". t and In tentional defiance of Judicial authority and to be, an I believed and found. In contempt of tho court. Thereupon I adjudged him so In contempt and Imposed a tine of $5 there for. I have since learned that Mr. Gurney, as secretary of his Britannic majesty's em bassy, was not liable to arrest for breach of the laws of this state, or to arraign ment before this court or within its Juris diction. I have therefore this day caused the Judgment of the court to be vacated, the fines to be remitted and returned. I send you herewith a letter directed to Mr. Gur ney expressing my regret for an assump tion of Jurisdiction from which, as a repre sentative of the British government, he was exempt. - Had he been better apprised of the usages of international law the court would not have assumed any Jurisdiction in the premises. The unfortunate cause of my error was In assuming that the Juris diction of the court extended to air per sons found and adjudged to be offenders against the law. I proceeded In ignorance of the usages of International law snd of the provisions of the federal statutes, the question never before having come before the court, nor was it so presented to me as to advise me of my error In the premises. The action of the court was inspired wholly and absolutely by a purpose to en force the law and for the protection of human life, endangered by the conduct of Mr. Gurney, as established by the evidence presented to me. Letter of Governor Bates. BOSTON, Sept. 29. The governor's latter to the Stat department follows: EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT, BOS TON, MASS., Sept. 28, 1834 Hun. Alvey E. Adee, Secretary of btatr, Washington, 1). C. Sir: Your telegram of tho 2iith was received In my absence and rep'led to by the lieutenant governor, acting governor. As the result of an investigation made by him, 1 find that Mr. Gurney, the third sec retary of the British embassy, was found guilty by Judge Phelps, Justice of the po lice court of Lee, In the county of Berk shire, In the commonwealth, upon a charge of violation of the law of this state rela tive to the running of automobiles upon the public highways. The statement of Judge Phelps with relation to the proceed ings In the case I enclose herewith From this It appears that, under a misappre hension as to the Jurisdiction of his court over the person of the defendant, the Jus tice acted in violation of the United States statutes In adjudging Mr. Gurney guilty and In Imposing sentence therefor. Upon being apprised of his error Judge Phe'ps ordered the Judgments vacated, the tines imposed remitted and has requested me to forward through you to Mr. Gurney his enclosed letter. As executive of this commonwealth I deeply regret that want of knowlrdge of the law, seldom, If ever. Invoked in our Inferior courts with rilation to the Im munity of representatives or a foreign government has resulted In this error of judicial authority and I venture to hope that the explanation and expression of re gret forwarded herewith by Judge Phelps may be recognized as a conclusive disa vowal of any intention on the part of a member of the Judlclul department of th government of this state to ignore the recognized provisions of international 'aw, or to manifest any disrespect to a repre sentative of the government of his Brit tan In majesty. While the Incident Is greatly to be de plored, I venture to suggest, as In some de gree exculpatory of the court In this mat. ter. that the representatives of foreign gov ernments who have dwelt among us have always conducted themselves with such regard for the laws of the commonwealth as to hitherto furnish no occasion for the consideration by our courts of criminal Jurisdiction of the Immunities to which sueh foreign representatives are entitled under the laws of nations and through which they may find protection when dis regarding our laws. I suggest that the attentnn of the am bassador of his Britannic majesty be In vited to the breach Of laws of this com monwealth disclosed In the statement of Judge Phelps accompanying this letter, be lieving thit. If his attention In called to It. ha will take such action as to make certain that Immunity from prosecution In our courts shall not permit the safety of our citizens to be endangered or our laws to be violated because through Interna tional comity Jurisdiction of our own tri bunals is Withheld. Respertfully. JOHN L. BATES. Jadge Phelps' Apoloar. The letter of Judge Phelps to Third" Sec retary Gurney follows: LEE. Mass., Sept. 28. Hon. Hugh Our ney, Third Secretary of His Britannic Majesty's Embassy, Lenox, Mass. Sir: As Justice of the Lee police court I find occasion to express my profound regret that through a misapprehension of the law, I assumed that the court had Jurls dlotion over the person of a member of the embassy of the British government. Having been apprised of this error and seeking to make all possible reparation therefor, the court has vacated and an nulled all proceedings taken In the matter of the complaint agulnst yourself and the erroneous Judgment entered thereon. I beg further to express my profound person! regret that I should have been, without Intentional error, the ' cause of your own personal vexation and annoyance or that anything should have occurred which may have seemed to be. though not so In fact, a want of respect for the rights of a representative of the government of his Britannic mal-sty.

It was found scarcely to meet the needs of the department because it does not set out the details of the Lee affair, which are required to make out a legal presenta tion of the case.
