Owing to the fact that Kansas IJnI
versity has cancelled tho games that
woro to bo played on this trip, tho

Theso colleges always have fast teams
and will bo able to makeIt interest

"Moaday'e election at Lincoln
proves absolutely what I have said all
aJaag that the state capital and 'the '
state university should not be located
la. the same city." Suchis tho state
ment of Mayor Dahlman of Omaha,
given to tho press Tuesday.
Mr. Dahlman oxprossed further
views on tho University and Its fac
ulty aB follows: ,
"If the peoplo of Lincoln- want to
make it a unlvorsity town, it. is all
right and thero will not be the slight
est disposition throughout the state to
support tho university, other than with
liberal appropriations, but when the
people pay their taxes to support the
statesunlverslty thoy oxpect that those
who attend and who are on the pay
rolls will attend to business and not
to politics, as the wholesale, interfer
ence of tho unlvorsity professors and
studonts in Monday's olectlon Indi
cates that thoy did. .
A University Town
"Tho peoplo of a groat stato going;
to tho capital from all the walks of
life, from, all political parties and rep-
resenting an laeas, expect to go to a
city with metropolitan Ideas, and they
are ontltled to havo such a city for
tholr capital. But Lincoln, has dem
onstrated that1 It is instead ya univer
sity town, and, having chosen the uni
versity, tho capital should go to an
other, city, if for no other reason, -
"Thoro aro plonty of centrally'' lo
cated cities put" in the state that will
gladly givo plenty of ground for the
site of a new capitol building free of
cost to the state, and when the new
building, is put 'up the old capitol
building at Lincoln can be turned, over
to tho state university, without a cent
of -loss to the taxpayers. The .'univer
sity needs more buildings, anyhow,
and surely tho Lincoln people will not
object to anything that is 'done to
help develop that great institution in
thojr midst - 4 .
.- "But the evil, offects of having the
state capitol in a city filled with other
state institutions Is apparent at air -times,
especially when the legislature
Is in session, and noticeably so 'on
Monday. Lincoln has the state . uni
versity, the state penitentiary, an
asylum for the insane and a home or
two besides .supported byf the state,
and every time that the .legislature is
in session the Lincoln friends of every
body connected with all of these, in
stitutions, and everybody from. whom
they buy'supplles and ereryene else
profiting from them iaii.-anywway -swarm
down upon the legttattireand
a big lobby is kept for Lincola free
of cost to that city, hamming tae
legislature at every tarn jlec bigger
appropriations for the Ltacoln instl
iutlons, greatly to tketdetrisaeat of
the other state Institutions, located In
other cities. The time has. aaqusstion
ably arrived when the state capital
should be separated from the imme
diate influence of these. iasUtatioas."
