THE KammieNobniHkn debate Is now
a matter of lilntory. Hugrcttlng iih wu ilu
tho defeat of our boy, wo cettalnly will
not allow Interest In debating to
wane, but enter Into tho contest next
yoar with Increased vigor. From all re
portH, tho Nobraska dobatcrs put up a
strong and convincing argument and re
flected credit upon thcmHolvcs and tho
university. Tho Kiuihiih debaters wero
oxporlenncd men and certainly woro a
worthy foo to moot In a friendly Intel
lectual rivalry. In view of the outcome
of the last dobnto, wo should gather a
valuable lesson that will be of service In
tho future. And that Is, tho exercise of
more care and discretion In the selection
of Judges. It certainly Is not wine to
uhoaso ministers to decldo upon the mer
its of a question embodying the aUstrnat
principles of political science, nor Is It
Judicious to solect lawyers to decide upon
tho merits of a theologlcnt discussion.
An Impartial and competent sot of Judges
Is Just ns desirable as strong dobatcs.
The parties who havo tho selection of
Judges In hand In tho future should, as
far ns this university Is concerned, se
that only deserving men aro given such
responsible) positions. Let us prollt l
our oxporlenoo and buckle on tho armor
nnd go Into this debato next year with
now vim, vigor and hopo.
3ffUr8 OY,MNASIUM EXHIBITION.
Tho sixth annual exhibition of the girls'
gymnasium work was held last Saturduy
evonlng. Tho nrmory was comfortably
filled. Tho gallery was reserved tho early
part of tho ovcnlng for tho faculty; but on
account of tho stormy weuthor the num
ber of tho faculty members was small and
tho gallery was opened to all. On thik
main lloor the three rows of chairs that
encircled the lloor wore almost tilled.
Tho llrst number on the program was
tho Indian clubs. The class marched In
slnglo lllo to tho back of the room and
came up In sets of three, tho middle col
umn stepped forward und the outside col
umns to the side This exercise wns well
oxeoutcd to tho music. The dumb bell ex
orcise was a particularly pretty exercise,
the class bolng formed llko a whee'., with
rows of live each, facing tho centre or
hub of tho wheel. The marching drill with
a class of live sets of fours under Miss
Elliott was much appreciated. Miss Han
conducted the class in fencing movements
nnd positions. It was done In perfect
time and the noise of the stumping In the
charge was exactly together.
Tho bar-bells, while simple, made a
pretty exercise. The apparatus work
was all good and tho leaders Misses Lewis
Hyde, DuTell, Chappel, Spurk, Stratton,
Miller, Smith, Wheeler and Pentzer, all
Showed proficiency In the special work.
While a few were not able to keep the
hand balls from rolling over the floor, this
now extrclso mado a graceful picture.
Tho marching calisthenics and fancy
steps wore received with considerable ap
plause. The ball passing of the Inrgu medicine
ball mado an Interesting gamo nnd caused
Tho mass drill from the first was slight
ly mixed In marching to positions, and us
a result, many mistakes wero noticeable.
This -was due largely to the fact that most
of tho girls were tired from the exercises
that all had tried their very best to do,
and with all their vim.
The work throughout the entire evening
showed thorough training by Miss Barr
and her assistants.

LAW SCHOOL LECTURE.
Mr. Roscoe Pound gavo a lecture before
the law school Wednesday on "Roman or
Civil Law." Tho following Is a brief
Tho Roman nnd tho English races are
tho only peoples who havo originated a
system of laws. Others had primitive sys
tems which did not mature, especially
when they camo In contact with tho Ro
man lnw. This was developed first In tho
city of Rome nnd called the "Jus civile"
whenco perhaps our name, the civil law,
though this Is more likely an antithesis
to the church or common law of the mid
Roman law was very scientific. Learned
masters Investigated principles nnd theor
ies and their treatises were codified finally
by Justlnus Into digests which consisted
of three main parts, the Institutes, tho
digests and the code. The digest Is tho
main part and is a compendium of tho
"responsa" of the "Jurist consults."
Roman law is a system of masterly
treatises of trained doctors reasoning on
abstract law whllo the English common
law Is oxtromoly practical, being mostly
ascertained by Judgos' decisions of par
ticular cases. Consequently tho civil law
has not our regard for precedents, nor
need a lower court follow tho suporlor
If It does not conour In tho doctrine,
Anothor striking dlfforonco I In tho
method of- procedure under our system
the Jury Is tho trior of fact and tho Judge
Is but an umpire between tho contending
parties, Under tho Ilomnn law thoro was
no jury nnd tho Judgo made ovory effort
to nscertaln tho facts, prnctlcally con
ducting tho wholo case, thus often bolng

and business law wero mostly dovoloped

In England tho king took ohargo of
tho oxeoutlon of tho laws and by tho ad
ministration In ono court gavo great
unity to tho common law. In Amorlca
the wider exteift of lerrltory and re
stricted powers of Judges have made us
more dependent on text writers, Also af
ter the revolution an aversion lo Eng
land and English decisions, nnd a sym
pathy for France caused a marked study
of lloman law here, anil an Inllueneo on
We should nevertheless study and re
vere the lloman law as It Is undoubtedly
by far the oldest and we should accept
or may be Its better points.

GLEE CLUB CONCERT
The long expected nnd oft-postponed
Gleo club concert wns given at the Lann
Ing theater Wednesday evonlng. Mny 12,
by the University Glee club nnd tho
Sutorlus Mandolin club. This was Urn
fourth annual concert given by tho gle
club nnd was without a doubt the most
successful. The audience which greotert
tho boys wns of n fnlr size, but If tho
students had turned out tho wny they
ought to It would havo been much larger.
There was n notable absence of any at
empt at decorating tho theater In the
university colors and the college yell was
an unknown quantity. Nevertheless tho
crowd was highly appreciative nnd en
cored without exception every numbor
on the program.
Tho boys were nt their best and their
rollicking songs, while there were not so
many as one might have wished, wero
In regard to tho Sutorlus Mandolin
orchestrn, It Is safo to say that no other
musical organization which has vlsltea
Lincoln, with tho exception of Sousa's
band, has created so favorable an lm
prossion. This orchestra consists of nbout
sixty pieces, under the efficient direction
of Mr. H. P. Sutorlus, and Is ono of tho
largest organizations of Its kind In ex
istence. It wns difficult to toll whether
tho glee club or the orchestra pleased
the audience more.
Tho hnrp solo by Miss Wllholmlna
Lowo was nrtlstloally executed and re
ceived n hearty onccro. Such numbers
as "Legonds" and "When Day Fades,"
which were given Dy the gleo club, wert
well received, but the Jolly songs, such
as tho "Bee" song nnd "Tom, Tom, tho
Piper's Son," wero the kind which took
best with the crowd. That ridiculously
funny piece "Romeo and Juliet" pleased
Mr, Ireland's whistling solo mado a
great hit and drew out tho greatest ap
plause of tho ovonlng. Kenagy's baritone
solo and tho quartet number by Messrs.
Ireland, Davis, Konagy and Norton wore
well rondored. Tho medley arranged by
Bob,Mnnley caught the house completely
It was full of striking and surprising
ohangos and was far above tho average
of Its kind.

THE OMAHA CONCERT.
Tho University Gleo olub gavo a concert
In Omaha last Tuesday evonlng at Boyd's
theatre. The concert was glvon In con
junction with tho Betitorlus mandolin or
chestrn. Tho audlenco wns not ns large
as It should havo been, but those thitt woro
present were vory woll pleased anil highly
appreciative. Every number which the
boys rendered was encored once and some
of them even twice. The excellent work
of tho gleo club should serve to draw a
better audlenco If ihe loys should decide
to give a concert In Omaha next year.
THE ORATORICAL CONTEST.
Tho Inter-state oratorical contest which
was held nt Columbln, Mo., May (i, was
won by P. D. Decker of Park college,
