t Omaha. Their findings show a defalca
tion of 11,930.71. The booka of the
itiMtftutlon have been kept iu a very
crude and unsatisfactory manner and
many account were not verified. Tha
committal Instructed ita accountant
that whore account could not be veri
fied and In all case where there wm
doubt existing that could not be re
moved, that the superintendent or olfl
cerofthe institution should have the
benefit of the doubt. The booka show
that In addition to the shortage stated
above that the superintendent ha dis
bursed the cash fund arising from the
Industrial departments to pay deliclena
clcs in salariisahd In other wave not
authorized by law. No authority ap
pears of record showing that the board
of n til In laud and building ha ever
authorized th us of the fund lu the
manner in which they have been. The
fund and money disbursed through
vouchers of the regular form ahow lit tle
Insularity and the shortage, occur n
in other iutitutiou In . the industrial

The committee will recommend in it
flnal report that all money derived from

system to be followed by all state Jnwtl
tutioti. Huperlntenden Gillespie was In Lin

Board of Educational Lend and Fund
Protecting th State'a Intereate,
The board ol educational land and
fund baa cancelled a large number of
ncIiooI land contract throughout the
wcktero countle in t he wtate. The can
cellation amounted iu all to 435,237
acre, which, together with th echool
land vacant, give the total number of
acrea available for lea under the pro
vlelon of th new law lu the countle
named. Under preceding udminltra
tiou the law requiring intereet and ren
til pnymenta to the etate for the ue of
Mchool land ha not been enforced, and
thNtatehalot thousand of dollar.
Many of the bolder are deliuouent elx
or eight year, Speculator who have
ald only a dollar hav been alloweif to
told the laud lit throe or four year
without any other payment Mug
It I not the policy of the present
board to cancel contract held by per-
mod living on the land and who are
making an honest effort to pay for the
ame; and where thi fact I proven to
the commissioner of public laud and
building and a part of th delinquency
paid, exteuMlou to the end of the year
have been grunted, with the understand
1 111 that the remainder will then be paid.
Commissioner Wolfe la traveling over the
fate, leasing these and other vacant
echool land, as rapidly a possible,
with the result that a great deal of the
land which ha been idle, rental having
been lost by failure to keep up the col
lection, will now begin drawing rental
and will continue to do o if th present
policy I followed; much of thi lurid hav
ing been held, heretofore, by eculator
and other who have paid little or noth
ing for the ae thereof.

Ha Bn Afflicted for Eight Year and
Beea Treated for Scrofula.
The first case of leprosy in the etateof
Nebraska baa been discovered in Lin
coln. A Norwegian laborer 31 year of
age, a resident of the United State for
twelve year, applied to Dr, Everett 0
Lincoln for treatment. The unfortun
ate mau ay that be ha been employed
on the railroad tor eight year, and that
the first effect bl the disease were no
ticed at about the' time lie began rail
roading. He boa aince doctored con
tinually for scrofula.
Wearying of the eame old thing and get
ting no benefit from the medicine be
took, the man applied to Dr. Kveretr.
hoping to secure eome relief from tbe
pain at least through th medium ol
salt bath. A I alway the case before
a patient I admitted to the sanitarium,
the doctor examined mm thoroughly.
He removed a tubercle from hi arm and
Hurry Kverett submitted it to a bacteri
ological analyi with the assistance of
a microNCoiie, The doctor came to the
conclusion speedily that the man had
anaesthetic leprosy a the aymptom
showed it. Th analysis of the tubercle
bore him out in hi opinion, but to make
ur of it he called upon Dr, Lockhart of
the Willurd 1'arker hospital la ew York
city, who I here vlsitirg. Dr. Lockhart
ha had much experiencein ekin uieaea,
having had charg of tbe leper on Kan-

Soma Interesting Figure- on the
Elo la Value of Their
A Part of the Speech of Hon. Joioph
Wheeler of Alabama,
July 19, 1897.
A Nl Profit ot $1100,000,000,
It baa been atated by tbe newspaper
of tbe country that aince the Introduc
tion of the Dlnirlev bill In th House nnd
tha favorable consideration which it re
ceived by that body, that tbe value of
II etocke of tbe great trust have stead
lly increased, Hon. Joseph Wheeler of
Alabama baa Investigated the facta in
tbe matter and give aome very Interest
ing fliures. If how that twenty-five
organized truela have an Increase In the
value of their etock In th last three
month exmwding 1200,000,000 in all.
Thi I th recompense for their contri
bution to tbe campaign fund which re-
tored tbe republican party to power.
Anyone who I familiar with th fact
will conclude (bat the convening of tbl
txtraordlnary Jscsslon and the enact
ment of thi bill were eolely for the pur
pose of paying campaign debt.
la a speech lu Congress July 10, Mr.
Wbeeler ttid:
Th bill should be entitled "An act
for the protection of and to increase the
power and wealth of combine, monopo
lies and trust,"
Nearly th entire bill! framed to at.
tain euch a purpose, Oa March 31st a
resolution wa voted Opon in the House
the object being to Incorporate a pro
vision in the bill, the effect of which
would have been to add un amendment
placing upon the free list all article
iriaiiulactured, produced, or controlled
by any combination or organization ol
perOD or corporation formed in the
United Htute for the purpose of limitfntr.
regulating, or controlling the aupply or
price of any such article.
Th proposed amendment also con
tain. J th further provision (hat the
rate of duty now prescribed by law ehall
be levied and collected on any or all of
such article when, in tbe opinion of the
secret ury of the treasury, such article
shall cease to be manufactured, produced
or controlled Ijj the Uni ted Htate by
any aucb combination or organisation.
Thi amendment wa a blow at or
ganized trust. It wa voted for by
every democrat and voted againt by
every republican, and, ae a prominent
republican atated, if that amendment
carried, the entire purpose of tbe bill
would be defeated.
Nearly all th manufacturer of similar
article in the northeast have organized
into what are called trusu or combina
tion. For Instance, the Standard Oil
trust, th cotton-seed oil trust, the nail
trust and the barbed-wire trust. These
Organization are a follow:
All th manufacturer in a certain Hue
combine together and elect a board of
trustee. They keep informed a to the
stocks of good in the United Htate of
the kind In which they are interested.
and by closing a portion of their too
torie from time t time they keep the
production down to th demand In thie
country. By these organization they
regulate the production, the price, and
th prlcnol labor. When the production
exceed the demand, several, factories
stop work, and thus laborer ar thrown
out of employmtnt. Thi enable th
manufacturer to tak advantage of the
