The World-Herald Is Btrlvlng hard to
persuado tho public that the results of
Ita superficial convass through its own
Interested agents represent the opin
ion of the people of tho Btate in re
gard to tho Temple Fund. It is still
tremulous lest our institution shall
lose tho good will and proud regard
of tho people who have thUB far sup
ported It, although it Is using every
ililliiiu i 1.11 in tin iuii iu uiuift uuuui
such a result. In order to show how
far it is succeeding In its designs It
prints additional opinions, which are
purported to bo representative and
which as some of them show openly
deal only with a certain class. All of
the opinions submitted boar the ear
marks of the work of some Individual
who has taken scrupulous care to pro
cure tho only kind (hat he knows well
Is wanted. Ilelng relied upon he did
not care to disappoint expectations, and
accordingly has arranged matters in
tho way that ho knows will be suitable
and prints things In as cheerful a light
aa possible, for the causo he represents.
Tho sheet even printa poetry in its
eagerness for something aping its own
course to fill up space poetry which
from a rhetorical point of view at least,
Is a sacrilege upon the English lan
guage. Thus with a confused Incon
gruity of solicited opinions from Indi
viduals servile effusions of spiritless
newspapers and the doggerel of an in
dividual who has lived a long and use
ful career without ever getting his
Hpe in print before, the World-Herald
works out Its personal spite in attempt
ing to carry out a purpose In which Its
own selfish Interests alone are Identi
fied. The World-Herald has much to say
about Nebraska selling her honor. The
World-Herald never had any honor.
If It ever had, It would have been sold
out long ago Jf a price had been of-
fered. Nebraska's honor and tho nnilt-
Ical designs of tho World-Herald are
too widely separated things, and It Is
a shame to associate a thing so noble
with designs so base. Tho honor of
our state has been called into question
alono by manifestations of malice and
dishonest methods that a paper which
is supposed to work for tho best pur
poses and to bo one of the great papers
of tho state has displayed.
Dispatches coming In from various
towjis of the state Indicate that the
oplnjqn of the greater part of their
, citizens have been misrepresented by
tho World-Herald; and give facts to
contradict tho statements made by that civilization has (Jone. Too many peo

were sent in by newspapers condemn-

that paper merely desired thoso agrce
ablo to Itself. Wo aro able to lay
hands upon the copy of one opinion
that was sent In and never published
because It Btrongly condemned the In
famy of the paper that solicited It. In
tho hopes of Btlning up rancor and
b'lternesB against the Tomple Fund,
tne World-Herald has stood a mendi
cant at the back door of the state press,
eagerly grasping such crumbs as might
be pultablo to its ravenous hunger for
Yet after all the World-Herald thinks
that we will have the building, but
that all sorts of distressing thingB
will follow. Tho people of Nebraska
havo too much good will and proud
regard for our University to bo in
fluenced by tho falseness and base
ness of a partisan sheet seeking to do
us ill. If the question should ever
become an Issue, the only result would
bo a repudiation of the deceitful and
infamous course of the World-Herald
in sotting up Its own selfish ends be
fore all that Is decent and right.
Prof. Smith at Chapel.
The convocation period was taken up
yesterday morning by Prof. O. S. Smith
of the sociology department of the
University of Minnesota and Mr. Burt,
the national trainer of secretaries of
tho Y. M. C. A., who talked only a few
minutes, In which he spoke of the state
Y. M. C. A. convention, that Is now
In session In the city, and urged tho
students to attend all the meetings pos
sible and especially to bo presen at the
address of W. O. Colton. After this
short talk the remaining time was ful
ly and profitably taken up by Prof. S.
O. Smith, who spoke in part as fol
lows: "When I came here I was asked whe
ther I had heard of the great institu
tion of learning you havo In Nebras
ka, and I answered that every man In
the United States connected with edu
cation knows of Nebraska, and In par
ticular does Minnesota have knowl
edge of tho "Cornhuskers." That laat
game was our "Bull Run" and by and
by we expect to meet you at Appo
He eulogized Chancellor Andrews as
a prominent educator, and a man of
broad experience and knowledge, and
in this connection he said there were
others here worthy of distinction, but
particularly did he wish to mention the
name of Dr. Ross as a man who was
fast becoming a leader in sociology
and receiving universal recognition.
Ho continued his address with the
discussion of sociology or psychologl
"In psychology," he said, "there must
bo some previous readjustments made
to fit us for-civlllzatlon. I do not know
exactly for what work you grant di
plomas here, I suppose, however, It Is
the same as In other Institutions or like
nature; but I expect to see tho time
when diplomas will be granted to a
man who has trained his mind so as
to hold it on a subject for an hour
without playing lp tho backgrounds
That Is, I havo reference to graduate
students, for Seniors one-half hour
would be sufficient. The savage can't
hold his attention at anything, and
people who can not havo never over
come the savage Intellect. Many men
wear fine shoes and dress like civilized
people, but mentally they are uncivil
ized and have feathers in their intellect,.
The savages would sell their hammock
cheaper In the morning because of their
lack of foresight. They could not re
alize how badly they needed it in the
evening. Young ladles and gentlemen,
do not sell your hammock In the morn
ing. Mark this point and realize what
' ar"! rise higher in tiie scale of civili-
ization. You can pick up Lincoln and
Bee how he arose from hIa early con.
ditlons, to be a master of civilization.

Professor Smith has a magnetic per
sonality, and his excellent delivery,
which showed his fullness of the sub
ject was Inspiring to all.
IT'S HARD TO CONCEIVE
how anyone can look at the things in
this stock of
and fall to make a purchase. It does
not very often happen that way. Lin
ger and wo havo you. The beauty, the
style and the quality of these things
is fairly irresistible, and on top of
that comes a price that Is Beveral de
grees below what Is right.
