lit regard to tho Kansas-Nebraska
debate we tfnn only reiterate what has
been said before: The Kansas men
were trained. This was evident to the
casual observer. Our men worked
hard, but against great odds as was
shown during the debate.
Prof. Hodgman desires to say that
In printing his reply to a criticism of
tho Lincoln Evening News upon his
vhnpol rending lttt Friday morning,
that jviper lias inserted two negatives
in tho next to the last paragraph
where neither sense nor regard to the
tn th will permit them to remain.
In America," nnd Vrof. Norton as do
nounclng tho f. H. government us
"boorish." it is apparent from news
paper reportH of tholr speeches to the
students at Harvard, that either the
gentlemen have been mlseoustrued, or
that they lack tho ordinary Instincts
of tho American citizen. If mioh
speeches, as are attributed to these
men, aro the product of much learning
and culture, then surely "a litUc learn
ing is a good tiling." One feels like
asking tho learned professors to please
transfer their allegiance to some coun
try xvheru there aro gentlemen and
where the statesmen and oflliinls are
not all "boors." Possibly Spain would
suit their aesthetic taste.
No man can become too great to bo
above owing allegiance to his country.
The utter ctherialncss of political and
sot lal theories is apparent at tills time.
Harvard will surely nut benefit in the
iuI:hIm of patriotic men on account of
thl stand by her president, and the
,vo tug man imbibing such sentiments
is far worse off than if he were In to
tal Ignorance of the subject. Such sen
timents seem sacrcllgtons to niitl null
ty and are like the scolYcry of the.
dear cut logic nnd team work of Ne
braska, Our boyn wish this to he said of MIh
sourl. From the point of xlexv of cour
tesy and hospitality, both students and
faculty did everything In their power
to inako our Iniys feel at home. Ne

This is quite in contrast, with the aver

Wo print elsewhere a paragraph,
culling attention to the action of a lo
cal paper in garbling a letter of Prof.
Hrdgman relating to the tatter's ad

not convolve of two words being
inserted byaecident in such convenient
places. Such conduct is unworthy of
any paper above the grade of the "yel

heartily condemned. The paper wns
wrong from the first nnd should have
admitted it as gracefully ns possible.

one can afford to miss it.
We clip the following from the Kan
sas University Weekly:
The fielding of the whole Nebraska
team was throughout the game posi
tively brilliant. In the thirteen long
innings only two errors are charged
against them. The work o. their out
field was the fastest ever seen here
considering the heavy condition of the
field. The fielders covered nil kinds of
ground and threw as hard aim as true
as if the balls had lieen shot out of
Commodore Dewey's rifle guns. Prob
ably the star play of the whole game
wns Bliss' running entt'h of Kills long
drive to left center in the tenth inning.
The hit looked good for three bases
and with Sample on first would have
won the game. The men in the infield
too presented a stone wnll front. Noth
ing got by Kindlcr at second who ac
cepted eleven chances and what didn't
come into his territory Wells and Cau
gill gobbled. Bliss led the isitors at
the bat with two home runs and a sin-gl".
President Elliott and Prof, Norton
of Harvard have won for themselves
n good deal of unenVialnble newspaper
notoriety, on nccount of their attitude
on the war question.
President Elliott is quoted as sin-

Missouri based her arguments en
tirely upon the commercial and strat
egic value of the Islands and urged an
nexation solely from that point of
view. In that phase of the argument
they quoted freely from l.oriu Thurs
ton's pamphlet favoring annexation.
Nebraska contested each and every
point in regard to the strategic and
commercial necessity, and further ar
gued that, admitting the aluc of the
islands as such, it still is incumbent
upon the affirmative to prove that we
should now thrown aside the present
policy of independence for the islands,
under which they do have some Im
portance, and substitute for that an
nexation. Upon this argument as a founda
tion Nebraska established a series of
(1) That annexation is not a nation
i) That a dangerous precedent will
CI) That such a plan is impractica
ble and unconstitutional.
( I) That there is no provision in
our political system for the control
of such possessions.
O) That the inhabitants of Hawaii
(0) That the Hawaiians are unwil
ling to be annexed.
(7) That all commercial and strat
egic advantages are already secured by

justly accused of inuxcusiioie negli
gence, in regard to the selection of
judges for the debate. According .o
arrangement Chancellor Macl.can was
to have chosen one judge from Missou
ri, and Chancellor .Ic.sm.' of Missouri,
in turn, was to have chosen one judge
from Nebraska. Then botli together
were to hae chosen the third judge
outside of both states. Chancellor Mac
Lean did his duty promptly, but. Chan
cellor .Jesse did absolutely nothing,
nor did the dehatinir association of
Missouri notify us of the fact, till our
representatives arrived in Columbia.
It was then too late to obtain consti
tutional judges and two had to ,,e
chosen from Columbia, which is a
town of nlioiit four thousand inhabi
tants and run by the students.
Another point in which the Missouri
people took advantage of our repre
sentatives was in the statement and
interpretation of the question.
In their correspondence thex agreed
sp-cifically to the interpretation that
tin- U. S. should annex Hawnii. When
how oxer the six debaters were called

Missouri boys held to the original
statement, that it would be beneficial
to tho U. S. to annex Hawaii, and re
fused to change,

and away from home, were either com
pelled to refuse to debate, or accept
the odds ami do their best to win un

chose the latter and from sturt to fin
