Illness Prevents Iowa Governor
SpeaKinf Charter Day.
ho svBSTrnrra yet adbanged fob
Chancellor Andrews Will Probably
Secure Speaker in Chicago.
Word was received at the executive
office, yesterday morning, to the ef
fect that Governor Cummins of Iowa,
who was secured to speak at the Char
day Day exercises could not fill the ap
pointment, because of illness. The In
ability of Governor Cummins to speak
before the University people is a se
rious disappointment and unless ar
rangements can be speedily made for
another speak&r the success of the ex
erlcses may be much marred. The
address was to have been on "Some
Questions That Are Yet to Bo An
swered." '
Chancellor Andrews is now in Chi
cago attending the educational council
called by President Harper, of Chi
cago University, and will probably
complete arrangements for another
speaker whife there."" He left Ifcrisola
- ooday and is expected to return to
morrow, but may be delayed by the
information from Governor Cummins.
the telegram received by the chan
cellor reads as follows:

Fifteen Men 9how Up for Cage
Work. Some New Ones.
"A familiar thud In the men's locker
room reminds the passers-by that the
baseball season Is approaching. Cago
work has begun in earnest and battery
candidates take a work-out dally be
tween 1:30 and 3 p. m. About twenty
five men have already reported and
been assigned ""lookers. About fifteen
of these men are battery candidates.
Among those who will try for the box
are Captain Townsend, who needs no
introduction; Sampson, a pitcher of
several years' experience; Longa
naecker, who twirled the sphere last
year for Wahoo; Morse, of the Amer
ican Indian team; Chase, of the Lin
coln Y. M. C. A., and Hrubesky, of the
.Geneva High School and city nine.
Bender, lost year's Btar behind the bat
and an all-around man, will. likely try
for catcher. Other men who will work
for this place are Whltcomb, of the
'02 Friend team, and Carson, of Gene
va. At present throe of last year's
team havo declared their Intention of
playing ball again this year. They areJ
Townsend, Bender and Shimer.
Shlmer will try for outflold; Olllo
Mlckle. '02 fullback, will try for first,
and Burg of last year's second team
expects to try for loft or center field.
Hereafter only three men will be al
lowed In the cage at one time. The
men will bo divided into squads and
each three given fifteen minutes for
practlco. ,
Books Have to Go to Library for
Sake of Laboratory Room.
Some changes were being carried out
In the stack room of the horary yes
terday. Books on one set of shelves
were removed to other positions. This
changing about was occasioned by the
necessity of removing the geological
library from Nebraska hall to the
library oroper. The department of
geology proper Is making such rapid
progress that the matter of accom
modating the large number of students
enrolled In that department has bo
come a vexing one. Over threo hun
dred students are talcing work in
geology, which is about eighty In ex
cess of last year. To accommodate
this large number the departmental of
fice and library is to bo cleared of
tables and books and converted into
a laboratory. Another' motive for
making the change lies in the fact that
Nebraska hall Is not fire proof. The
books, manuscript and photbgraphs
bolonfelng to ttie department are very
cotly, man or them rare,1 and some
riotfcanable of bein-replaced' ifthe ex
isting copies were' destroyed While
tbe removal of the geoiogica nurary,
to the' Library building will incon
veriience'the department, it is felt that
the'' change-will be anadvantge to the
studente-and will insure' safety to the
library itself.
Wednesday's Letter
How the City and People Impress
a Westerner.
The following letter from Mr. J. F.
Boomer, now in Aianlla, although not
originally Intended for publication,
will be of much interest to hlB friendB
hore. Wo hope before the end of the
semester to havo another letter giving
later and more mature Impressions of
the new American possessions, but
give the following extracts from this
as interesting records of first impres
sions. Ed.
Manila, Dec. 7, 1902.
I confess I am still much at sea, and
have little definite to say. I have been
rather too much a part of the proces
sion here to view it from" the stand
point of an observer. I think I should
hove wrltton when I arrived and my
first Impressions wore very new.
The natives hore have none of the
qualities upon which western natives
are built In tho nrst place they do
not know what It Is to work. The
great mass of tho population of these
Islands, so far as work toward sub
duing the soil and overcoming the in
fluence of nature is concerned, are sav
ages. They lack tho energy of body
and mind and the continuity of pur-
nnan fhnt holnnir to tipatiIa nf tho tflm-
porate zone. They are mere children
in methods, in breadth of view, in
'power to deal with problems of 'vlaily
life. They have a high sense of re
venge and almost no sense of what we
call justice, and tho sense of right for
right's sake, separated from any selfish
motive, if met with at all in the race,
is all too rnro.
JubI at present Duslness here Is at
a standstill. The fluctuation in the
currency is responsible for much of it,
and tho scarcity of workers is respon
sible for more. Tho native will not
work. That Is a general proposition
with Its exceptions. Ho holds it de
grading to work. Ho is not forced by
the necessity of food and shelter to
work, for ho can get the little rice
ho eats, and fish he cats, and fruit ho
eats, without work, and as for houses
and clothing, nature doesn't demand
them why should he work? Yet there
Is much to be said in their favor. They
are neither so bad nor so good as they
are represented to be by the extreme
parties at home.
I think tho climate will protect the
native against all but the Chinese.
With unrestricted immigration and a
fair show before the law, the Chinese
would own this country In twenty-five
years as against tho natives.
As to tho work being done here by
the government, I can say but little.
On the whole, considering all the dif
ficulties in the way, I consider it is
creditable I think Oovernor Taft is a
great man and as honest and wise as
could bo asked. It is too soon to look
for results. That the people here, the
natives, are better looked after, that
their needs are more full met, that
the aro given more Justice and more
mercy than they ever, know before, I
have no doubt That the-admlnlstra-tlon
as a whole is honest and clean
thern is little room for question. At
close range one sees much that is not
ideal, much that is not satisiactory.
Btit like imperfections in human na
ture, that Is to be, expected.
i As you may have heard', I have left
thn educational department, and am
In tho newspaper1 work. I have agodd,

work Is Intensely Interesting and in
structive. But the work Is pretty
heavy, and my hours pretty long; and
besides, I find I cannot do as much In
this cllmato, even in tho colder sea
son, as at home. I havo been located
In Manila evor sjnqo coming hero, and
so havo not boen able to make tho ob
servations r should like In the pro
vinces. I hopo to go home In tho early sum
mer. 8o far as tho work and salary
hero are concerned, I am well pleased;
but the roughness of tho surroundings,
and tho unhoalthfulnesB of the coun
try, make it an undcslrablo placo for
a home, and I feel that tho longer I
stay tho moro I get out of touch with
things in tho States. My health has
been goo4, on tho whole, and I have
no reason to complain.
Charter Day Exercises will Take
Place of Recitations.
Owing to Charter Day exercises and
tho events of mid-year commencement,
it is officially announced that no
classes will bo hold Monday, tho 16th.
The full program for Saturday and
Monday will appear Jn tho Friday and
Saturday Issues of The Nebraskan.
Laws Make a Noise.
The law students created some sen
sation yesterday In tho law lecture
room by a little "tiff" between tho
senior arid Junior classes. While wait
ing for the professor, who chanced to
bo late, the Junior laws spent their
timo at speech making. The- matter
of base ball was under discussion
when one of the senior law students,
who Is taking 'work In the Junior year,
attempted to speak. He was greeted
with such derisive cries as "Put him
out!" and when he insisted on being
heard the whole class set up a' howl,
A rush was made for the senior, but
at this Juncture the senior Class poured
in from the library to the assistance
of their classmate, A genuine class
flght would have ensued If the belated
professor had not appeared and re
stored order.
