Americana Consider Morals, English-
men the Property Rights Involved,
Says Prof, Guernsey Jones.
That temperance agitation In Eng
land wHl Increase, with a growing
Chance of final BUCcesB, Is the expec
tation of Professor Guernsey Jones,
who spoke at Convocation yesterday
on "English Temperance Legislation."
Professor Jones emphasized the dTFl
ferent ways In which Americana and
Englishmen approach the question.
Here It is a question of morality;
there the primary consideration is
, s "The temperance movement which
Js sweeping over this country has its
'components in European countries,"
said Professor Jones. "The move
ment there seems mild compared with
tours, England being the most pro
"The timidity with which the Eng
lish have approached the temperance
question has npt been due to better
conditions there- than elsewhere. In
.fact, the English saloons are quite as
objectionable as our own and their
(numbers are proportionately greater.
In all England the proportion of sa
loons to population is one to three
hundred. Here in Lincoln we have
one saloon for every thousand or
twelve hundred inhabitants. In Ox
ford and Cambridge, two great Eng
lish university towns, the number of
persons to each saloon are one hun
dred and eighty-four and one hundred
and forty-five, respectively. The Eng
lish saloon interests wield a tremen
dous political Influence. Thus we see
that the problem Is even more press
ing there than In this country.
"The"rea8ons for the timidity fn
approaching- the natter are" several.
Tradition in England is opposed to
legislation which restrict individual
llberty. Gladstone In the early nine
ties condemned the refusal, of licenses
on the ground that such action would
harm free tTade. We must consider
also that in England, the brewing
business is. eminently respectable.
'Lords are among the leaders of the
-liquor Interests. The business is a
recognized avenue of political prefer
ment "The English persist in looking up
on -the question from the standpoint
of the property Involved, They be
lieve, that the liquor -dealer must be
compensated for his loss of income.
The first temperance measure became
a law in 1904. It provided that every
holder of a license must contribute
about $50 to a compensation fund, this
money to be used in compensating
dealers , whose licenses 'were retired.
The English license is peculiar in
that, although it is" subject to re
newal annually, it has come to be re
garded as a permanent asset of the
;holder. ,. Licenses are valued as high
as 150,000, their value "of course be

ary from China and now acting as
traveling secretary for the American
Board, gave a most interesting talk
In the Y. W. rooms Tuesday noon.
Miss Patterson is a very charming
speaker and her account of Chinese

port. The New Mexico Agricultural Col
lege recently suffered a $2,000 loss by
the burning of the meBs hall, Klon
dike by name., The fire was discov
ered before It had gained much head
way, but since the only method of
fighting was by a bucket 'brigade and
the building a frame structure, it was
soon a mass of flames. One of the
students had a narrow escape from
death while a number were unable to
save any of their belongings.

Harris, Sturtzenegger and Greenslit
Benched 8ome New Equipment
Purchased for the Trip..
The adoption of the Freshman rulo
by the Athletic Board has made quite
a change in the line-up of the Corn
huskers. Shortstop Harris and Catch
era Sturtzeneggor and Greenslit wero
put on the bench. This has forced Wo
change of Klein to first baso and
Denslow to backstop, while shortstop
Is again wldo open. Dudgeon will
probably cover second since the
change of Klein, and Boltzer will hold
down the third sack.
Tho advent of Sleuter has put new
hope into the hearts of the fans, as
the left garden is now sure tp be welL
cared for.
Tho pitching staff is causing some
worry on account of tho wildness of
most all of the boys, but it Is still
early In the year and by the time the
trip Is well started tho boys will be
playing a number one baseball.
When the Cornhuskor baseball team
leaves on the Eastern trip they will
not need to be ashamed df the equip
ment that has been furnished for their
use in the games.
In addition to the new suits pur
chased last year, Manager Eager has
received a full equipment of baseball
coats that will be served out to tho
men who make the team.
These coats are double-bfeaBted af
fairs, box cut, and Dave double rows
of pearl buttons as large as, dollars
down tho front. Upon the arms are
diamonds In scarlet, blazoned with a
cream N, and the three large pockets
are each decorated with the Initial.
Besides the suits and coats, two
sets of caps will he given out. The
one gray iq match the uniforms and
to bo worn In games, the other a red
skull cap bearing a white Initial, to
bo worn with citizens clothes while
on the road.
The team will put up a splendid
appearance, and it is hoped that ln
splto of the passing of the freshman
rule, which has been extremely coat
ly to Nebraska's hopes, they will be
able to put up a class of ball that
will not belle the classy uniforms.
