EXPERIMENTS IN GEOLOGY.
A series of Very Ihtcrestrhg experi
ments Is being cnn'Ied oh "by W. H. H.
Moore Of the department of geology
tind Mr. Mnnle, who is Interested in the
"Nebraska quarry industry. The object
of these experiments is to find out
Whether n conunoreiiil cemont can bo
manufactured from Nebraska rocks.
The experiments include the making of
Content from the limo rocks that are
found in the southeastern part of the
jJtn'o and the comparison of the article
with cement that is successfully made
for commercial uses. Flattering re
3ults have been obtained by this in
vestigation In the laboratory. A ce
ment has been made from native rock
that compares favorably with the ce
ment that Is on the market. The ques
tion yet remains to be solved as to
whether this product can be manufac
tured profitably In large quantities.

COl'NCIL MEETING POSTPONED.
The university council, consisting of
the heads of the departments in the
university, the presidents and heads ot
dupartments In the colleges of tl.o
slate, the board of regents of the unl
A'drfllf y, the governor and state officials
and the' principals of accredited high
st'hools, which was to have met on
charter day, was postponed on account
of the Impossibility of finding time for
it at this charter day. The regents
had so much business outlined for
them that it was impossible for them
to take any time for this purpose, and
accordingly they approved of the post
ponement. The council will meet,
however, on commencement day, June
7. and probably the meeting will bo a
fuller one then because of the failure
to have a mooting at this time.
JUSTICE TO INDIVIDUALS.
A bill relating to the discharge of
railway employes has been introduced
in the Texas legislature, which pro
vides as follows: "That when any
employe is discharged with or with
out cause, that tho wages of such em
ploye shall bo paid so far as due on the
day of discharge, without abatement
or deduction, and If tho same bo not
paid on such day, then, as a penalty
for non-payment, tho wages shall con
tinue at tho same rate until paid; pro
vided, such wages shall not continue
moro than CO days, unless an action
thereforo shall bo commenced within
that time. That when such employe
secretes or absents himself or refuses
to receive his pay ho shall not bo on
titled to tho benefit of tno act. That
any sorvant or employe engaged for a
definite period of time who Is dis
charged without cause before tho time
expires may, in addition to the pen
alties prescribed by this act, have an
action for any damages ho may have
sustained by Iho broach of tho con
tract of employment, and such action
may bo joined with an action for un
paid wages and vqmiMch. Hallway
A Knight of Labor writing to the
New York Sun strikes the nail squarely
on the head in the following:
I "I agree With your correspondent
, that labor unions are trust-like in rec
ognizing as tho moro generally exe
crated industrial combinations, better
1 "known as trusts, have long ago recog
nized, tho fact that competition Instead
of being tho life is really the death of
trade, and they have evidenced that
recognition by abolishing competition
among tho!r members. A member of a
labor union is taught that he must not
deprive his moro fortunate follow
t member of employment by offering his
services for less than the wage scale
1 adopted at a meeting by a majority of
j tho members; In other words, the or
ganization will not tolerate competi
tion among the members. Were this
not the case Avorkmen would be con-
tlnually In danger of being deprived
I of work by other men offering to do the
i same work for less wages than those
j who aro fortunate enough to be em-
ployed, as is now done by the unorgan
I ized toilers. The above mentioned
abolition of competition among organ
i Ized workmen Is to my mind the only
excuse tho enemies of labor organiza-
tions have for calling tho organizations
is opposite ;tiho Campus.

Within the brief space of less than
eight years tho tin plate Industry lias
been so thoroughly established in the '
United Statos that our manufacturers i
can now supply all local demands, and
we aro no longer dopondont on Wales i
and tho adjoining English counties for j
either tin or torne plates. Pr'or to
1800 all tin pinto used in the country'
was imported because none was made1
here. The Imports wore duty free, but
the tariff law of 1800 placed a duty of'
two and one-fifth cents a pound upon I
manufactured plates. I

Joct of sharp controversy between tho
