A FIRE CI8TERN.
Mystery of the R. 8treet Evcavatlon
In response to Inquiries from nu
merous patrons of this paper aB to
the meaning of the huge hole immedi
ately south of the Library for the paBt
two months, tho Nebraskan Is inform
ed that this Is a new fire cistern. The
reservoir has heen built by the Unlvor
clty and the city of Lincoln jointly, to
hold a supplly of water sufficient to
guard against a possible conflagration
in the neighborhood of the open air
smoking parlors outside the Eleventh
and R streets entrance to the campus.
The reservoir is 100 by 20 feet, by 12
feet deep, lined with reinforced con
crete, and Is connected with the city
water mains. Its cost is about $4,300.
Prof. Richards has arranged piping
from this reservoir to the the hydraullo
laboratory of the now Engineering
building, "which will add materially to
tho facilities of that laboratory at
small cost. The roof was put on tho
new cistern yesterday.
The Cornhusker Editors and Laws
The question of a senior law book
for members of the law cIobb has been
agitated again and. negotiations have
been opened with the .Cornhusker
staff la regard to the consolidation of
tho two books into one . This 1b prac
tically the same question that was
raised last year, diBCUbaed for nearly a
semester and finally resulted In the
publication of two distinct books. A
committee from the law school which
was composed of C. C. McWhlnney,
Charles Allen and W. M. Whelan con
ferred with thre of the Cornhusker
Staff yesterday morning. Those on
the Cornhusker staff were the editor-in-chief,
Arthur Jorgensen, tho busi
ness manager, Hubert Bell, and one- of
the associate editors, Stuart p. Dobbs.
The laws aBked for separate space but
the Cornhusker editors took practical
ly the same stand that their tfredes
sors did last year. They are willing to
grant separate pace for the- Jokes that
the law students may, submit but will
not permit them to hdrfiseparate por
tions of the, book for the pictures of
the various classes. The decision of
the Cornhusker staff is to be sub
mitted to the law classes at a mass
meeting to be held before long.
Mrs. Dr. Henry-BWard is very sick

It Is a husky bunch that will line

THE NEW 8Y8TEM IS NEARLY
IN8TALLED AT NEBRASKA.
A Change In the Lighting Plant That
Will ' Allow tho Generation of
Power for the 8tate Farm.
Nebraska University will soon be
possessed of as complete an equip
ment for oleotrlc lighting and power
as any public Institution of similar
slzo In tho country. Changes that,
have been going on all summer on tho
campus are now approaching complo
tlon, and will mark a complete revi
sion of the electric plant of tho Unlvor- '
alty. Tho change from direct current
to alternating current In both light
ing nnd power, and tho generation of
powor for tho University Farm at tho
main plant on tho Campus, are all
steps In lino with the, best modern on
glneerlng Ideas. Tho Improvement will
cost about f5,000, but will result In re
duced expense of operation and In
creased ofllcioncy. The. Immediate
necessity for tho change arose with
the need of lighting Nebraska Hall and
tho new Templo with electrlcty, and
bettering the poor lighting of tho Li
brary. In planning the increase In
tho size of the generating plant, lt
was ascertained that the substitution'
of high-pressure alternating current
for direct would result In such an enor
mous saving In copper wire as to near
ly pay for 'the entire change by tfcat
economy alone. Incidentally, tke
change replaces all the old motor
equipment with new alternating cur
rent motors of the best modern do
sign and gives the University a plant
permitting a 50 per cent enlargement
of capacity at a very small additional
outlay. Superintendent Fee planned'
change last spring, and it'hnsboen car
ried out since June, under the; direc
tion of Campus Electrician Wm. Drum
mond. The work has been done with '
a view to stability 'and efficiency, the1
materials and workmanship have been"
first class, and the new plant' will be iQ
source of credit anil satisfaction to the5
