LINCOLN CHANGES FRONT.
Is Not Nearly So Anxious to Have the
Norfolk ( Institution Abandoned as
was Talked n Few Days Ago State
Officers arc Here.
The delegation which went to Lincoln
yesterday to meet the board of public
Itndsund buildings and confer with
them in regard to speedy repairs being
made on the Norfolk hospital for insane ,
were given an audience by the board at
the state house last evening. At the
conclusion of the showing made by Nor
folk , Governor Savage and Attorney
General Prout determined to como to
Norfolk and look the situation over for
themselves before reaching a decision
These gentlemen came to Norfolk on
the morning train and immediately
after dinner drove out to the hospital to
see for themselves what may bo needed if
the building is to bo placed in condition
to care for patients.
While no intimation has yet been
given by the board as to what may bo
expected , yet most of the individual
members have expressed themselves as
favorable to malting the repairs if avail
able funds can be secured to do so
They all agree , however , that if any
thing is done it must bo done in the way
of making the reconstructed portion of
the buildings fire proof. The go\ernor
particularly is averse to having build
ings where people are confined so con
structed that they are liable to burn and
imperil the lives of the inmates.
When the governor and attorney gen
eral roturi1 to Lincoln , the board will
have a meeting and decide what shall be
done , and when the vast salvage at the
hospital is considered there can bo no
doubt but that the decision will be
favorable to rebuilding at once.
Speaking of this delegation and its
mission , the Lincoln Journal says :
"A delegation of nine Norfolk men ar
rived in Lincoln last night to interview
the state board of public lands and
buildings about rebuilding the asylum at
Norfolk recently burned. They were
Dr. Frederick Teal , W. N. Huso , J. B
Barnes , P. II Snlter , W. II. Buoholz ,
A. J. Johnson , T. Walsh , J. C. Stitt and
Burt Mapes. In the evening they met
Governor Savage and those members of
the state board in the city. They repre
sented that property worch iJ'To.OOO is
still standing and that an expenditure
of § 50,000 will place it in condition fit
for occupancy. The blaze traveled so
slowly through the buildings that all
the fittings down to the windows and
doors were saved and can be used on the
reconstructed buildings. These facts
were received in a non-committal way
by the state board who assured the
gentlemen that the problem would be
thoroughly investigated. The members
who have not already gone to Norfolk
will go soon to investigate.-
"W.N.Huse said to a Journal reporter
last night that Norfolk has a right to
expect the rebuilding of the asylum. He
was certain that the walls now stand
ing are in good condition and are in
jured only where the tower and water
tank fell down demolishing them for a
short distance. Elsewhere the walls are
standing. He said the citizens of Norfolk -
folk have no proposition to make. They
donated the ground for the institution
in the first place and rendered other as
sistance. They look to the state now to
protect its property there. "
Commercial Club Don't Want It.
E. 0. Rewick , secretary of the Com
mercial club at Lincoln , telephoned N.
A. Raiubolt of this city yesterday after
noon , desiring that ho should inform
the people of Norfolk on the position of
the business men of that city in regard
to the asylum matter. He stated that
it was not the sentiment of the beat
business men of Lincoln that the asylum
should be removed from Norfolk to Lin
coln ; that they were in favor of having
it rebuilt here by ( he state as soon as
possible and continued as the asylum
for the accommodation of the unfortu
nate people of the north Platte country.
He further stated that when the ques
tion comes before the legislature all its
members from Lancaster county will
give the people of Norfolk their solid
support toward having the hospital re
built here. Ho said that when the
news of the Norfolk lire came the Com
mercial club was in session at that place
and the suggestion of removal was made
by but two members , which met with
the prompt protest and dissent of all the
other members. Ho said that the people
hero could feel assured that no eilort
would be made on the part of their
people to have this asylum removed to
Lincoln and very much regretted that
such an idea had got abroad.
This assurance of Mr. Rewick will bo
welcome intelligence to the people of
Norfolk and will place the business
moil of Lincoln in a much bettor light
than they have held hero since the 10-
gretted fire that destroyed the hospital.
Journal Changes Front.
The Lincoln Journal of this morning
changes front very materially in the fol
lowing editorial mention of the Norfolk
hospital , which that paper was clamor
ing to remove to Lincoln only n few
days ago : "The matter is not of much
consequence , howo\or , booau4- ' Lincoln
has nut aki > d for tlio hospital and could
uot get it if the request were made.
Some romaiIts were oll'ered hero after
the IIro on the disadvantages of dividing
up state institutions , but it was goiter-
ally understood in Lincoln that the
abandonment of the Norfolk hospital
was out of the question. Any city with
political pull enough to get a state insti
tution usually has pull and push enough
to keep it. So f ir as the Omaha papers
are concerned , their real attitude
toward Norfolk will bo disclosed when
it is proposed to puss a law through the
next legislature restoring the Lurned
buildings and putting the hospital on
an equal footing witli the other insane
hospitals and asylums maintained by
the state. "
