In the death of ex-Govrenor David Butler, the
University of Nebraska has lost one of its staunchest
friends and supporters. -In the days when the uni
versity had been bur recently established, when stud
ents were few and the cost of sustaining an insti
tution of higher learning was much greater in pro
portion to the aggregate wealth of the state than at
present, Govenor Butler was one of the few influ
ential men of the state who insisted that the univer
sity should he properly assisted, and should net be
left to a lingering death. Our university stands as a
monument to the wisdom of the policy on which he
insisted. It is a pity that while the state of Nebraska,
the city of Lincoln, and the state university have
been so prosperous, it has been reserved to the man
to whom all three owe so much of their prosperity to
go down to his grave a financial wreck, and the
object of a state's ingratitude.
Tins is the third time during the present year
that we have been called upon to mention the loss of
a valuable professor. Dr. A. G. Warner was the first
to go. Dr, Warner had built up a department of
political economy of which we were justly proud; but
just at the time when it was beginning to show val
uable results, his eminent ability was recognized and
he was called to a better field.
The next was Dr. A. H. Edgren. Dr. Edgren
had, during his stay in America, gained more than a
national reputation by his scholarly work in Sanskrit
and in modern languages. He, to, goes at a time
when his ability is being most felt by one insti
tution. The third to go is professor George E. Howard.
It is needless to say anything in praise of Professor
Howard. His name in our university has become a
synonym of the highest order of scholarship. The
excellency of the historical department is due to his
untiring energy on behalf of his specialty and to his
unselfish devotion to the welfare of his students.
Professor Howard has made a national reputation by
his contribution to the subject of local constitutional
history in America. Stanford university, satisfied
with none but the best minds in the country, has
o f ft 1 1 d him oei) advantage in the way of assistance
