TEN MILLIONS MORE
ANDREW CARNEGIE MAKES ADDI
THE MONEY IS FOR RESEARCH
Points to Accurate Marine Charts
Made by Yajht Carnegie as One
Instance of Good Work.
New York. Andrew Carnegie on
Friday announced a gift of $10,000,000
to the endowment fund of the Car
negie Institution of Research at Wash
ington. This brings his endowment
to the institute up to a total of $25,
000,000. Coupled with the formal announce
ment was a declaration by Mr. Car
negie that the work of the institution
had cleared from blame the captain
of a British ship who ran his vessel
on the rocks, by proving that the
British admiralty charts, by which
the captain was guided, were two or
three degrees astray.
The discovery of 60,p000 new worlds
by Prof. Hale at the observatory on
Mt Wilson, California, also was an
nounced. Mr. Carnegie also announced that
a far more powerful telescope than
man has ever made is now under con
struction for the Mt Wilson observ
atory. The new telescope will have a lens
40 inches in diameter. Mr. Carnegie
declares that "the whole world Is
going to listen to the oracle on the
top of Mt Wilson and in a few years
we shall know more about the uni
verse than Callileo and Copernicus
ever dreamed of. I hope I shall live
long enough to hear the revelations
that are to come from Prof. Hale on
In conGrming a report of the en
dowment, Mr. Carnegie said:
"The report is correct They had
a large endowment before and this
ten millions makes the total of their
endowment twenty-five millions but
the institution has already scored
successes to justify even that sum. I
believe that the institution in re
search will repay tenfold in service
to the world.
"Doubtless you noticed in the tele
graphic news of yesterday that the
yacht. Carnegie, has just reached
Buenos Ayres. That yacht is the first
one ever built with bronze substitut
ed for iron; the latter deflects the
magnetic needle and bronze does not.
The result is that all former observa
tions are inaccurate.
"The Carnegie is going over all the
seas year after year, putting the
world right That one service will
give ample dividends on the whole
$25,000,000 in my opinion.
"There is scarcely anything that
pleases me so much as the success of
that little boat, the first of its kind.
"But this is not all the institution
is doing. It is experimenting in its
physical laboratory on the rocks and
analyzing them and will soon be
ready to show a formula for the mak
ing of Portland cement or concrete.
It has found the ingredients neces
sary and that invaluable material can
be produced In any part of the world
wherever the elements are found.
Hitherto, as I understand it. cement
could only be made from certain com
paratively rare deposits."
ROOSEVELT SUCCEEDS MORTON.

Favorable to New Orleans.
Washington. New Orleans wonthc
first round of the fight for the loca
tion of the Panama exposition when
the exposition committee of the house
by a vote of nine to six decided in
favor of it as the site of a fair to cele
brate the opening of the Panama ca
nal in 1915. The committee voted to
report favorably the Estopinal bill

izing the selection of a board of com
missioners and the making of a gov

for pecuniary aid is authorized.
Lower Joint Express Rates.
New York. Officers of Canadian
and American express companies, in
conference here on Friday, announced
a reduction in through rates soon' to
take effect between all offices of the
United States and many of Canada.
It is explained that several of the Ca
nadian companies have held back in
the matter up to the present because
the customs regulations at the Cana
dian border necessitate so much extra
work that a reduction in existing
rates would in many cases work a

Lincoln. Gilbert M. Hitchcoclq Is
United States senator in every sense
of the word except the formal declara

the legislature at noon Wednesday
and his later swearing in at the
national capital. The vote was taken
Tuesday In each house of the legisla
ture, each member of each house vot
ing on the candidate whom he pleased
to name. Only two candidates were
voted for, Mr. Hitchcock and Senator
Burkett in the house, while Dan Cook
of Beatrice rose to unexpected promi
nence in the senate by the vote of
Senator Peter Jansen for him. In the
house Mr. Hitchcock received 87
votes and Senator Burkett 10 votes.

Holt, republican, first offered an ex

Boone, also explained his vote and
cast it for Senator Burkett.
To Beat Wolf Bounty Brokers.
Auditor Barton wants to forestall
all attempts to profit at the expense
of persons having claims against the
state for wolf bounties. The state
has repealed the law under which
bounties are paid for such scalps, but
persons holding claims to the amount
of $30,000 are Interested in getting
these claims allowed. Mr. Barton
says that his office has been besieged
for a week by persons who want to
secure lists of persons having such
claims in order to offer a certain per
cent of the real value of such claims
for the assignment thereof and thus
profit when they are allowed by the
state. The auditor has invoked the
aid of the chairmen of the finance
and the claims committees of both
houses to push through these claims
at an early date so that he can send
out warrants and forestall the inten
tions of the scalpters.
Removal of University.
Leo of Boyd Introduced a resolu
tion similar to one offered in the
house for an appointment of a com
mittee of four to meet with a like
committee of the house to investigate
the proposed removal of the univer
sity, buildings to the state farm cam
pus and to investigate the needed ap
propriations of the university. The
resolution was seconded by Brown of
Lancaster and was adopted. Lieuten
ant Governor Hopewell said he would
announce the committee today. The
resolution of Lee calls for the ap
pointment of two members of the
committee on finance and two mem
bers of the committee on universities
and normal schools.
For Tuberculosis Hospital.
Another step in handling the tuber
culosis problem is contained in a hill
introduced by Bushee of Kimball. This
provides for an appropriation of $100.
000 for the erection of a tuberculosis
hospital in the western half of the
state. Provision Is made for the care
in the hospital of indigent persons af
fected with consumption. It is Mr.
Bushee's Idea that the hospital should
be established In one of the far west

Each week hereafter the clerk in the

they use that number, well and good.
If they use more than this amount
