legislature that knows no north wing

nificance of ihe name is realized in the
fact that a college of mechanic arts is
Imriie in llie bosom ot an institution
of culture. This fact is the sign-manual
of a modern university . It is the
culmination of a century ot progress

inspirat.ou to every instructor and stu
dent. May it be one or the cllleient
nieiias by which the University ma
lead in nrlnging In the new era pro
phesied. "As a hall of mechanic art, it is
primarily lor the use of the industrial
college. I thci-forc set apart the
building lor ihe special uses of that
college, and commit it, with hearty
congrainlations, Mr. Dean, to Un
charge ot yourself and your col
leagues." Inn. ( harles K. P.essey, dean of the
industrial college, responded in the
Mr. Chancellor and Friends of the.
1'ii.versity : Thirty-six years ago con
gress provided for instruction in the
hranches of learning which arc relat
ed to agriculture and the mechanic
arts ami required the states to provide
i ne necessary inuiiiings.
"In joung Nebraska, as in the older
states, the earliest buildings were
those for more general uses, where
the demands for room were greatest.
Tints, for more than a decade the
needs of nil departments in all colleges
were met in this university by Uni
versity hall, with its thirty small
rooms. 1 hen Chemical hall was erect
ed, and for a few years, in addition
to supplying lalxiratoriivs and lecture
rooms for chemistry, it hospitably
gave space to the growing depart
ments of botany and physics.
"A little Inter the state made pro
vision for the increasing needs of the
militarv department by erecting- Oram
Memorial hall, in compliance with
tlie requirements of the congression
al act that instructions in military
science should Im- included. Simul
taneously Nebraska hall was built to
give room for the .icvclopiuciit of ge

the last fifty years of iiiericaii sci

thinkers, thinking men became prac
tical, industry was regenerated, and
the real glory of the Victorian era be

be revealed of an era not reckoned
from Victoria hut from the victory not
only of American arms, but also of
American invention, industry and ed

"To the eye of the prophet, this day
with the dedication of the mechanic
arts hall crowns the peace jubilee of
the Trans-Mississippi exposition. The
Iniversity of Nebraska, now generally
recognized as the leading central
trans-Mississippj university, becomes
in tin lofint i-eiivi- jf the donl the

tin department of chemistry.
In Nebraska hall there developed
early in the present decide the germ
from which sprang the electrical and
mechanical engineering department.
Sis years ago these swarmed out Into
the engineering- laboratory and there
made such growth as soon to demand
and secure much additional room.
Then came Library hall for all dopart
incuts, the plant house of hortluulturc
and botany and the farm and dairy
buildings for agriculture.
"Truly. Mr. Chancellor, the record
