ministration, I am constrained to lay special
emphasis for tho necessity or a tuorougn re
form in the management of the public insti
tutions of the state. Particularly is this
true with regard to the extravagant, and, in
some instances, dishonest expenditure of the
funds provided for the maintenance of those
institutions. While the most flagrant in
stance of this has been revealed la Uie con
duct of the hospital for the insane at Lin
coln, and for which the former superinten
dent, m-ss asd should be heid liable, I am en
tirely satisfied that a like condition has here
tofore existed in connection with other insti
I mav recall to yon the circumstances which
led to the investigation and exposure of tho
unsatisfactory condition of affairs which
had prevailed at tho Lincoln institute. With
a view to an honest and economic adminis
tration of the affairs of that institution, 1 in
stituted a system of comparative statements
between a given numler ,of months under
the present administration aud a like period
under nreooodinz managements, and found
such an enormous difference as could not be
ascrilied to parsimony. Ho pronounced
was this difference in the matter of supplie
consumed, (being about Ai Tier cent loss.
that 1 became convinced that thoro had been
dishonesty connected with the transactions o(
tlw former management; and ou the 2!tb
day of September. 1SJ!1 I called upon the
board of public lands and buildings to make
a thorough investigation 01 ciiarges w&tcn
had been mado at a public ineetiug by E. 0.
The investigation which followed developed
such a state of affairs as warranted an in
vestigation by tho grand jury, with the re
sult that a number of criminal indictments
were found, with which tho courts have yet
Corroborative of my opinion that the state
institutions may he conducted more econom
ically than hus been tho custom, I cite you

I may nl-;o add that tho report of tho,
superintendent of the asylum for chronic
insane, at Hastings, with au average increase
of twenty patients, makes a comparative
showing for a period of ten months of a sav
ing of S7.O71.O0; and a comparative state
ment for six mouths shows ft saving of $:J,
770.00 at tho hospital for insane, at Norfolk.
For a period of ci;;ht months, with an in
creased number of inmates of twenty-five
per cent, there is a saving shown at the
soldiers' aud sailors' home, at Grand Island,
From tho facts and figures thus brought to
my attention by tho officials in charge of
those institutions, whom 1 have lieen per
mitted to appoint, lam convinced that tho
said institutions can lx conducted in their
running expenses, exclusive of salaries, for
about sixty-six per cent of tho amount here
tofore consumed. And, in this connection, I
would further call your attention to the
fact that there aro a number of stato institu-

Tho close connection of tho university with
the public school system is shown by the

the university and its strong hold upon all
