A bill has boon introduced into tho legis
lature that we hope will become a law. Tn
general it provides that, of every publication
by the state, fifty copies shall be set aside
for the state library and fifty for the State
Historical society, to be used in exchange
for similar publications of other states. This
might be done at but slight cost to the state
and it would materially aid both libraries.
Tt is true, the State Historical society is in
no way connected with the University; but
its library is in tho University building and
we have access to it at all times. This fact
gives us a friendly interest in its welfare.
Tho society, too, deserves support on its
own merits. Not until the history of our
state is exhaustively written will the value of
its work be fully realized. Nebraska may
never present tho interesting study that
Massachusetts or Virginia docs, but, in all
probability, tho future student in history will
find something worthy his time in our enrly
history; in which case his labor will bo
lightened and his investigation made more
comprehensive by the aid derived from some
such organization as tho Historical society.
History is studied more and more with each
succeeding year; in all probability, its popu
larity will continue to increase, and certainly
everything aiding in this line, either directly
ov indirectly, deserves commendation and
is too early, of course, to say just what
the Legislature will do with or for the Uni
versity. That it will act conscientiously no
one doubts. That it feels duo responsibility
for tho successful work of the institution can
not bo questioned. If it is not fully informed
