Low Rates to Many Eastern Points
F. A. NASH, 1524 Farnam Street,
General Western Agent. OMAHA.
Oklahoma Man Advised to Change His
Course by the Attorney Gsneral.
C. C. Coleman, attorney general, will
not help Ira N.' Terrill prosecute the
wardens of the Kansas penitentiary or
help him collect $6,000 which he claims
is due him for work while in the peni
tentiary. Some time ago Terrill called
upon the attorney general and asked
him to bring actions against E. B.
Jewett, W. H. Haskell, J. B. Tomlin
son and H. S. Landis, wardens, for al
leged false imprisonment, fee also
wanted three guards of . the peniten
tiary prosecuted for taking from him
some poetry. The complaints were all
made in writing by Terrill and the
attorney general replied to it by say
ing that he would do none of the things
asked and closing with some advice to
Terrill as follows:
"I desire to say that I have no per
sonal feeling or bias whatever toward
you. You have not asked my advice or
counsel as to your course, and .there
fore will probably not welcome it, but
as one Who wishes you well, I believe
that $ou ought to abandon the course
you seem inclined to take. Tins same
amount of industry and. heat-applied
in the direction of establishing your
self in business and making up for lost
time, which you are exerting in an
attempt to obtain vengeance for al
leged wrongs, would in the end avail
you and profit you a great deal more
than can possibly result from any pro
ceedings you may take under the com
plaints you are making to me."
Terrill was paroled by Governor
Frantz of Oklahoma, June 12. He was
sent to the penitentiary for twelve
years for killing John Embree in
Guthrie. The latter had testified that
Terrill was a "sooner" when Terrill
was trying to prove up his homestead.
Terrill refused to work in the peni
tentiary and persistently appealed to
the courts for release, asserting that h
had been illegally convicted. His con
duct caused the Kansas prison authori
ties to refuse him the benefit of time
usually allowed for good behavior.
One Way Cut of the Alleged School
T. A. McKeal, state printer, has be
gun an investigation which may lead
to his recommending to the next legis
lature that Kansas print its own text
books for the c'ommoYi schools. The
state now has a fine printing plant and
Mr. McXeal said that with compara
tively little expense the additional
equipment could be secured to print all
the books needed by the school chil
dren of the state.
The experiment has been tried xin
several states. In some it was success
ful and in others it failed. Mr. Mc
Neal believes, however, that with
proper management the state could
turn out the books without loss after
the first year. Making the plates and
getting the machinery would cause. a
heavy expense the ' first year and the
books could not be manufactured at
the present price except at a loss.
After that it is believed that the sale
of the books would show enough profit
to cover the loss.
Mr. McNeal may ask that the state
printer be given authority to print a
few- of the textbooks as an experiment
and to determine whether it would be
practicable to print all books.
There has been much discussion .in
Kansas recently about alleged graft
iu awarding contracts for school books.
Decision Recently Made Is of Much
Importance and Means Assem
bling of Magnificent
Art Collections.
By a decision of Justice Stafford in
the District supreme court, it has been
determined that this country already
posseses a national art gallery. This
decision is interesting first because no
one realized that there was such a
thing as a national gallery in this
country, and, second, because it brings
to the government and incidentally to
Washington the Harriet Lane John
ston art collection, which is intrinsic
ally valuable, very beautiful, and will
form the nucleus around which a real
national collection eventually will be
built up. The pictures have just been
transferred to the custody of the
Smithsonian institution and will be
placed on exhibition as soon as possi
This decision of the court is more
Important than even the transfer of
the Johnston collection would indi
cate. The Smithsonian has had an
art collection for years, and it has
slowly been growing, mostly through
gifts; but the present decision recog
nizes it as a national gallery. This
will attract more donations, and al
though the collection for the present
will be housed in the lecture hall of
the National museum, there will
doubtless in time be a separate build
ing erected for the art collection; and
there is nb reason why in time the na
tional gallery in Washington should
not he quite as much a center of at
traction to visitors as the National gal
lery in London.
By the will of Harriet Lane John
ston in 1903 her' art collection, con
sisting of 29 paintings, brsts and other
objects, was left to the Corcoran art
gallery until such time as there should
be established by the United States
government a national art gallery. The
bequest to the Corcoran gallery was
acompanied by a number of conditions
such as that the collection should be
housed in a separate room without
artiificial heat, and there were some
other provisions, to comply with which
would have entailed more expenditure
than the trustees felt that they were
justified in making for a merely tem
porary collection. They therefore de
clined the custody, and it looked for
a time as though the collection would
have to be sold and the money divided
with the estate, going principally to
the Harriet Lane John3ton Home.
President Roosevelt, who is interest
ed in such matters, urged on congress
3 duty to establish a national gallery,
but it is seldom that such a thing can
be done in one session and the matter
went by default. Finally the executors
of the estate and the Smithsonian in
stitution went into court in a friendly
suit to determine the custody of the
pictures. Then it was that Judge Staf
ford decided that the Smithsonian al
ready constituted a national gallery.
As a matter of fact the formation
of an art gallery is one of the first
duties of the Smithsonian under the
act creating it, and when the present
Smithsonian building was erected it
was designed with two of the biggest
rooms specially built for a gallery.
The act creating it says that it "shall
have custody of objects of art, the re
sults of curious and foreign research."
This function of the institution has
been recognized by the regents all
along and there have been a number
of valuable objects acquired that have
more place in an art gallery than they
have in a museum.
Some of them have been turned over
to the temporary care of the Corcoran
gallery end some to the library of
congress ; but they will all go with the
Johnston collection toward forming
the foundation of a national gallery.
There are other and more extensive
plans afoot that will help on the work,
but tliey have not yet taken official
shape, but it is sufficient for the pres
ent to refer to the fact tbat they are
in existence.
One of - the "first purchases of the
Smithsonian, directly in line with the
formation of the art gallery, was the
Marsh collection of prints and engrav
ings. This was a lucky speculation, as
it proved. George P. Marsh was for a
long time United States minister to
Greece and to Italy. His collection of
prints was a notable one and was
bought .by the Smithsonian in 1849
for three or four thousand dollars. It
was temporarily deposited with the
congressional library, and experts esti
mate its value now at between $50,000
and $60,000. .
- The Smithsonian already has quite
a large collection of busts of promi
nent men and scientists, several valu
able portraits and other objects, all of
which will go into the new collection.
Watermelon Seed Causes Death.
Nina Beveal, aged 5 years, died at
the hospital in Salina as the resuit of
an operation to remove a watermelon
see which had become lodged in her
windpipe. The operation was made
too late to pave the child's life.
Senator's Wonderful Record.
William Pinckney Whyte, United
States senator from Maryland, who
has just passed his eighty-second mile
stone, has never been inside a saloon,
never smoked and never rode in a cab.
He framed the instrument on which
the unique government of the District
of. Columbia is founded. He lives out
side of Baltimore, yet is able to ap
pear at a trial in Baltimore in the
morning and be in Washington in time
to answer to the noon roll call of the
senate. Twice chosen United States
senator, he has also been governor,
mayor, state senator, state representa
tive, city solicitor, attorney general
and state comptroller. He was de
feated for the United States senate
by the late Arthur P. Gorman and
then succeeded Gorman at the latter's
death. He was a member of the Mary
land legislature when Gorman was
lad in Howard county..
