Some prejudiced, shallow brained Methodist brother wrote
an nrticle which nppenred in a recent number of the official
organ of the Methodist denomination in Nebraska which wa
a bitter and uncalled for attack upon the Advcntists. The
location of the Advcntist college in Lincoln was the immedi
ate cause of the nttnek. The article sounded very similar to
some of the language used by our dear Puritan fathers in de
scribing the followers of other sects. The Puritans were ex
cusable, to a degree, for their prejudice, but for men of sense in
this supposed age of toleration and liberty of conscience to
deliberately attack the followers oi some other denomination
on religious grounds indicates that there is something wrong.
We arc glad to say, however, that Chancellor Crcighton of the
Weslcynn has published a statement strongly disapproving oi
what the writer in question said, and welcoming the Advent
ist college. As students of a great state university we wel
come this institution. Hut we will draw the line when the
supporters of sectarian schools, with no more means of sup
port and no more complete systems of instruction than the sec
tarian institutions already in this state, claim that those
schools arc in any way equal to our own university. It is folly
to suppose that colleges with mortgages hanging over the
very buildings in which instruction is given can in any way
compete with an institution which receives the support of the

On Saturday, Fcbruaiy 22, Donne college decided who
should represent her at the state contest. There were eight
contestants for the position, and each of the college classes
were represented. The productions may be divided into two
classes, three religious and the other five political subjects.
The judges were Rev. Show, Rev. Swcezey, and Rev.
J. D. Jones. The two winning orations belonged to the first
named classes. "The Redemption of Japan," by Leonard A.
Turner, was awarded fust place, and "The Christian Religi
on in History," by Guy W. Green, second. Considerable
dissatisfaction was expressed at the decision of thejudges, es
pecially amongst the students. The successful pioduclion
was somewhat long and was delivered in a rather hasty and

refusing to stand in the way of such a mutual attraction.
The U. of N. might take a hint from Doanc in respect to
filing the exchanges for the benefit of tle students in general.
"That red headcd.girl goes to the university," said Rock

standing close by him.
