There will be fireworks at the grounds tonight. It was stated by the passenger officials of the Omaha terminal lines this afternoon that in all probability the same rates that were made for Flower day will be offered on Friday, to which the day the Flower parade has been postponed.
There will be reduced rates into Omaha on Thursday on account of the opening of the Indian congress, and the plan suggested by several of the passenger officials is to make these reduced rate tickets good for return on the Friday evening trains, allowing the holders to stay over to see the parade on Friday afternoon.
The matter will be decided at a meeting here on Wednesday morning. The rattle of rain drops on roof and foliage in the early morning inspired dismal forebodings in the people who have been working for weeks to make Flower Day one of the distinguishing events of the exposition, but as the rain disappeared with the darkness and the sun occasionally broke through the clouds to flash a promise of brighter skies later in the day, they worked on in the expectation that the conditions would be more favorable in the evening when the grand pageant of the day was to occur.
As the morning wore away and the clouds still gave no signs of clearing, the committee decided to postpone the event.
The certainty of rain made this action imperative. The arrivals at the grounds during the early forenoon were somewhat limited, but the street cars were carrying hundreds of people with valises and traveling bags who dropped off in search of hotels and boarding houses and proceeded to the grounds later in the day.
By 10 o'clock they began to materialize at the exposition and during the remainder of the forenoon every northbound car was heavily loaded. As the parade does not occur until evening and the bulk of the local attendance is not anticipated until late in the afternoon, there is every prospect of a big crowd.
The amount of baggage carried by the out-of-town arrivals indicated that they proposed to stay to the full limit of their tickets and most of them will be on the grounds again tomorrow.
The floral pageant that was to have been the principal feature of Flower day was necessarily postponed on account of the rain, to the great disappointment of everybody.

Half a hundred of Omaha's most prominent society women will drive the beautifully decorated equipages and many more will assist in completing the ensemble by wearing colors that will harmonize with the flowers in which they ride. A handsome solid gold souvenir medal will be presented to the driver of the most artistically decorataed decorated vehicle while bronze and silver medals will reward the second and third best respectively.

Kansas City day grows in importance as the event approaches and it now seems certain that Saturday will bring one of the biggest out of town crowds that has ever yet been on the grounds.
The Kansas City officials and business men who have charge of the arrangements predict that no less than 5, people will come from the city on the Kaw to celebrate the occasion and most of them will remain in Omaha for a number of days.Online shopping from a great selection at Movies & TV Store.
