WASHINGTON , D. C. , Nov. 24. The
Spanish minister , the Duke d'Arcos ,

to learn the prospects for the release of
the Spanish prlsoncis held in the Phil

heard as to the measure of success at

President McKinley to Agulnaldo con
cerning the Spanish captured , but it is
assumed that the recent forward" move

routing of the Filipinos that difficulty
has been experienced by General Mac-
Arthur in delivering the messages. 'Iho

Nehranttii Matter- * .
LINCOLN , Nob. . Nov. 27 Ono of the
most Important duties the new State
Unlveislty Board of regents will have
to perform will bo the selection of n
chancellor. Dean Chailes E. Bossoy
has been acting chancellor since the
beginning of the university year and
will probably continue In the same ca
pacity until next fall. It Is possible
that no selection will be made for a
year or more , but It 13 generally be
lieved by thoao connected with the unl-
vtralty that the matter will be taken up
by the regents at the April meeting.
The list om candidates for the chancel
lorship is growing larger every day.
Nearly all state are represented and
there aio even ono or two people in
Europe mentioned for the place.
There has been some talk of the
present Board of Regents st'.ectlng a
man before the terms of the outgoing
members explie , but the board itself
has not considered the proposition and
it is unlikely that such action will be
taken. It has always been the policy
of the regents to move slowly in such
matters nnd it would not be surprising
if no selection is made for over a year.
Of the men mentioned for the posi
tion of chancellor the mo t prominent
are : Superintendent Andrews of the
Chicago public schools , President .1.
C Stubbs of the Nevada State univer
sity , President W. ri. Chaplin of the
Washington university of St. Louis
and Prof. Jeuka , formerly of Cornell
university. Supcrlntedont Andrews Is
very popular In this city and a stiong
effort Is being made In his behalf.
The newly elected regents will take
their seats in January , but the first
really Important meeting will not beheld
held until April.
The ( " .Huge Iii Trclghc Ititrfl.
LINCOLN , Neb. , Nov. 27. The usual
end of the year changes in freight
rates on the railroads is causing more
than the usual stir among shippers of
bulky commodities. Especially are the
lumber dealers of the state worked up
over the new schedule which goes into
effect the middle of next month. S ° v-
eial of these country dealeis have been
in Lincoln during the past few days
and the higher rates have been the
topic of discussion among them gener
The railroads' anouncement that the
car load rate for cattle would be dis
continued next month has caused cat
tle shippers to renew the old contest
that was on two years ago. The car
load rate permits cattlemen to pay so
much for the car and then load it aa
they please , In4 certain limits. The
rate per1 hundred weight permits the
railroad to charge for every pound
carried. It is considered probable that
there will be some vigorous remons
trances against some of tha changes
like the above which the state board
of transportation will have to hear

fence and a good meadow from which
500 or COO tons of good hay Is cut

will stock It up with cattle or sheep In
the near future and Mr. Deal will look

The condition of the Nebraska Na

It Is quite probable that there will ho

that by going Into debt for the amount
of transportation of the troops it will

There Is no danger of an entire sus

no money with which to pay tholr fees

such witnesses as llvo In the city or
