Not Yet Finished.
Word has been received from Dr.
Barbour, who is now in St. Iouis, of
the progress of Nebraska exhibits at
the world's fair. Construction on tho
educational booth for Nebraska has
been delayed, owing to a fault of the
contractor. Until It is finished the
material cannot be placed for exhibi

has been received. Two fi eight cars
were sent down, and minor shipments
have been made since, consisting of
twenty-four boxes in all

:: ADMISSION. : :
Dr. Stein at Convocation.
Dr Sttln gave an address during
convocation hour yesterday morning
on "A Phnse of Lincoln's Character."
Ho began by revlowjng the occasion of
Lincoln '8 assassination, thirty-nine
oare ago when ho was a Btudent at
college, and ho pictured the great
gloom which came over them. "Every
man, woman and child," he said,
"mourned for tho doath of this brave
and patriotic ruler. A mighty man,
who had stood at tho holm through the
most perilous period of our nation's
history, foil by tho result of a treach
Dr. Stein went on to characterize
tho man whom ho called the greatest
tho world has over produced. "You
may look the world over' he contin
ued, "and you could not find a man
who had such a knowledge of men
and such marked ability for leading
them, nor was there ever a man who
had such momentous problems to deal
with. With all these difficulties he
was called to act with but little experi
ence In public life, nnd how can we
account for his wise administration?"
Thq only way, thought Dr. Stein,
that ho was ablo to act so wisely in
all these times was his divine guid
ance. "Ho who cannot see the foot
prints of tho Creator in this irrent
drama has seen but little of Its value."
He went on to explain how Lincoln
was .prepared for this duty in a mys
terious manner; his early life in the
woods of Kentucky, his" work on a
"Uloat: his position or clerkship:
! is training In the Illinois legislature,
"'d his experience as a soldier In the
Black Hawk .war. all of these 'gave
him n keen knowledge of human na
ture whith was the kt.vnote of this
Furthermore, he had a thorough
physical and mental preparation. His
habits were tempt rate. hlB body war
accustomed to enduring strength, his
nentnl power knew no exhaustion, the
drudgery of his law books, thtfuntold
effort for knowledge-prepared hlin for
" ' f-trn'n of this great iesionhibiIlty
Ml t ,t!,e things, thought Dr. Stein,
v re a beiufattor In moulding the
man who endured the hardships ot
that great crisis
Thja address was very interesting. It
revealed the character of I intoln and
the strong conviction of the speaker.
Could Not Play the Game.
A muddy field and a clouded sky
made a baseball game a physical im
possibility yesterday afternoon.
Nevertheless Mr. Rourke and his stal
wart troop of pennant chasers came
down from Omaha and are making
their headquarters at the Windsor
hotel. They remain over today in
hopes that tho weather will permit ot
a game. They aro on their way out
to Colorado Springs, wjiere they will
open the season.

Temple Fund Pledges Have
Mounted Up to $33,000.
Very encouraging reports aro forth
coming rogarding tho condition of the
temple fund. Tho commlttoo Is en
abled to report that $32,000 has boon
pledged, and that a largo numbor ot'
these 'pledges have beon redeometf.
One thousand dollars moro will placo
the building in our hands, and such
a comparatively small amount will not
bo allowed to stand long between the
commlttoo and tho realization of 11b
'I ho studonts havo responded well to
the appeals made to them. Tho classes
have all beon doing their share, and
good returns are reported from them,
although many members havo been
unable to give additionally owing to
tiulr affiliation with societies th,at
have pledged largo amounts. As an
examplo of students' liberality, four
men In tho engineering department
who had already made pledges, con
tributed twenty-five dollars each
toward helping tho Palladians to ralBO
the amount of their pledge. Another
student has contributed fifty dollars,
while several others havo each mode
good one-half that amount. Tho best
individual record Is hold by a man
who raised seventy-five dollars In his
home town during tho Christmas holi
days. As is well known, the Y. If.
C. A. has already redeemed Its pledge
and rejoiced In consequence. In gen
eral, the students have been doing the
best they can, and few of them can
be accused of not supporting tho fund.
Now that tho ond of tho school year
Is approaching, It would not bo a bad
idea if those who have made personal
pledges should undertake to redeem
them. To s?rve as a reminder, a cir
cular letter has been sent out to all
whose pledges aro due. Now is the
time for those who have made pledgee
to pay to the general committee. Pay
ment may be made to Professor Wyer
and Registrar Clark, or at the execu

etnatlal amounts have been received
or pledged from the outside. Tho
alumni have done well, as many con
tributions and encouraging letters will
Indicate. The people of I Incoln have
become Interested and have contrib
uted quite liberally It is. In fatt, but
a matter of a short time until the en
lire amount will be raised.
We understand that work on Un
building will begin next spring As Is
gonerally known, it will stand on the
( orner of tho block southeast of the
tampus, which Is indeed a desirable
Two Judges Selected.
Two of tho Judges have been selected
for tho forthcoming debate with Kan
sas, and the third one will bo decided
upon in tho next few days. Tho two
men chosen are Chief Justice H. E.
Deemer of the Iowa supremo court, of
Des Moines, and Hon. John L. Wobster
of Omaha. Kansas selected Chief Jus
tice Deemor from the list of- four men
submitted by our debating board, and
as Mr. Webster was suggested by both
Nebraska and Kansas, no difficulty was
encountered In reaching an agreement
there. The pictures of the Kansas
team arrived yesterday, and tho blog
laphics of the men are also at hand.
Kansas was beaten by Missouri in
tho debate at Columbia last Friday
night. Tho question was "Resolved.
That the fifteenth amendment should
be repealed."- Having lost one debate,
Kansas will be moved by a very justifi
able ambition to compensate for her
loss by defeating our team, and the
debate next week will bo all tho more
interesting on that account Exten
sive arrangements aro being mado for,
advertising the contest. Ticket bj'
ql ready been placed on sale.
