Moro than 2,000,000 acres of lam
were given by the national gorornmon
to Nebraska upon her admission into th
union as an endowment for publli
schools , colleges and universities. Thi
princely patrimony was sot apart by th
framers of our constitution as a pormi
nont source of revenue for educating th
people , and Uio legislature waa forovo
prohibited from alienating any par
thereof. To guard against any potsibl
abuse of the power vested in the state ol
fleers , charged with the management o
our school lands and school fundi
the constitution expressly provides tha
all funds belonging to the slat
for educational purposes , the interest an <
income whereof only are to bo used , slml
bo deemed aa tnist funda held by th
state and the state shall supply all losso
thereof that mny in any way accrue , B
that the same shall remain inviolate an
undlmininhod. * * * Such Bums , wit
the interest and income thereof , are BC
lomnly plodfrw ? for the purpose
for which they are granted an
sot opart , and shall not bo tram
ferrod to any other fund for other unca.
It ia a matter of history that the fin
governor of this state was impeachoc
convicted and removed from ol
fico for tampering with the schoc
sum collected from the general govern
inont for the achool fund. Since thoi
stringent provisions have boon cngraftei
upon our constitution and placed upoi
the Btotuto books to guard against thi
improvident or dishonest disposal of oui
school lands , and misappropriation of oui
Bchool funds. But alt these safeguard ;
have proven unavailing.
When A. G. Kendall waa nominated
commissioner of public lands and
buildings four years ago TIIK BER entered
ita earnest protest against this choice and
expressed ita conviction without reserve
.hat ho was a very dangerous man to be
entrusted with the management of the
state lands. Wo then called attention
o the fact that Kendall had notoriously
> eon connected with an infamous gang
of landaharka who trained with Boat
Cunningham and the surveyor-general's
ing that .had perpetrated whole
sale frauds in the survey ol
lublio lands. During the campaign
, wo years ago the BEK publicly charged
his kman Kendall with being the
load and front of a gang of speculator !
that was carrying on a ( swindle
n the purchase , sale and leas <
ng of school lands. Like all
jrazon public plundororn , Kendall rushed
into print to denounce the pafty thai
made this charge , aa irresponsible ,
and hia fool frionda of the
Lincoln Journal wont ao fai
as to demand of THE BICE the name of itc
nformant ; and when Tin ; BF.B referred
thoao acoundrola to Hon. Loandor Gerard ,
of Columbus , they subsided.
Kendall waa nevertheless re-elected
and in the excitement of the sanatoria !
campaign that followed the state election
the school land swindle was entirely for
jotton. During the early part of the
egialativo session a long-winded bill reg
ulating the aalo and leasing of school
ands , Tras introduced by Grimes , if wo
mlttako not , aa prepared and recommend
ed by the commissioner of public landa
and buildings. Grimes , who IB now rog-
stor of the land office at North Platte ,
was just the man to servo the purposes of
Glenn Kendall and the school land ring ,
[ ho bill waa ao ingeniously drawn , and
ta provisions were BO complicated that
ho committees , If they had not been
lacked in Iho interest of the ring , failed
a note any improper scheme. The bill
massed through both houses by alargoma-
iority and was approved by the governor.
It wont into effect in Juno of last yearand
: ho land sharks began their work in dead
earnest. The manner and methods , ol
, heir racally operations wcro exposed
months ago by our Lincoln correspondent ,
and although Glenn Kendall squirmed nnd
orgod all sorts of excuses and
explanation ) , the case made out agniiml
litn waa clear and convincing. It wai
an open secret at the Btato capital that
lundrcda of thousands of noros of land
md boon leased to Peter Funka , whc
tad no innncy to invent in lands nor im-
irovomcnta to make , and whoso'only ob-
oct waa to "turn on honest penny" by
lisroputablo and dishonest practices.
And now comes the Keith conn-
y injunction suit to prevent
county officials , who are allowed to hare
) eon corruptly influenced in school ap-
iralsomonts and through whom the laud
robbers were to obtain vast tracts of
ands , including over 100,000 acres , at
nominal figures in defiance of law. This
stupendous fraud in Keith county is hut
ho natural sequence of an organized effort
on the part of the land commissioner and
ils pals to line their pockets at the ex
pense not only of the taxpayers but
of the achool children of thom
m > sent and coming generation. Whore
was Governor Dawcs all this time ? Why
IBS ho connived at these frauds , or at
east failed to put a atop to this crooked
work which it ia hia sworn duty to pre
vent ? In the first place as govornoi ho
a guardian not only of the publio wol-
are but of tb-9 publio property. Aa a
member of the publio board of lands and
luildings ho ia , under the constitution ,
hargod with the care of the
ducational lands and educational funds ,
t will not do to plead the baby act at
his timoond claim that ho was not aware
f the improper disposal by leave or Bale
f the publio school landa. These mat
ers have been brought to his attention
iirough Uio BEK and through pa-
on of less noto. They were
u open ecandal upon hia administration.
Vo cannot comprehend why no notion
vaa taken by the executive.

The deadlock in parliament over th
franchise extension bill continues. Th
British lords obstinately refuse to bac
down from their position and Mr. Glad
stone maintains a firm front that inspire
his followers with confidence in the !
final success. The irrepressible con flic
will have to bo fought out.
There ia and can bo no other issue bo

Fho solo remaining question of intores
touches the moana that are to bo em

and the amunt of loss which conserve
attain will agree to suffer before it realize !
and submits to the inevitable. ' '
fSho chief doubt now ia whether par-
lament will bo prorogued * or dissolved ,
rith the probabilities in favor of the
ormor. Mr. Gladstone dooa not wish
o make an appeal to the country until
hose 2,000,000 men whoso battles ho
laa boon fighting shall have a voice in
ho Bolcctioniof a successor to thia par-
iamont , If the ministry shall adhere
o that resolution , then there are but
iwo ways out of the present difficulty.
The franchise bill will bo again presen
ted to the lords. If , satisfied witfi their
ihow of power , they surrender , wo shal
iear no more of the matter. If they
) orsist , there will bo no escape from the
ireation of a sufficient number of peers
o give the liberals a majority. Probably
ho more throat of thia would be enough ,
ta it waa fifty years ago , to make the upper
louse lay down ita arras , .In any case ,
.wo things may bo counted on : The
ranchiso bill will become law , because it
s in line with British progress , and tha
> ooplo are fighting on ita aide. The
uonacoa against the house of lords will
jeer no other fruit than words. The
English people have no appetite for rovo-
utioiia , and are adverse to sudden anc
rapid changca. They will got what they
want. The end of the agitation in Eng-
and is not difficult to foresee. In the
methods by which it in to bo reached lies
ho only present uncertainty. It ia safe
o say that thoao methods will bo the
east violent that will give the people
what they ask.
England haa failed in ita attempt ta so-
uro from the European conference con
sent to the reduction of the burdens of
Egypt in debt and interest needed to
prevent annual bankruptcy , and the first
top taken by the English administration
a tp throw Egyptian industry into con-
usion by insisting on back taxea. This
ngonious device will probably do little
owarda mooting the claims of bondhold
ers , but it may do a good deal towards por-
uading the conference to agree to scale
ho interest on the Egyptian consolidated
lebt when it moots next October , Franco
ma given England a severe chock in pre
senting Mr. Gladstone's propositions
from being accepted , but the result will
nrobably improve the position of the
iboral ministry in parliament , whore the

So vague and contradictory are the re
ports which reach us concerning the state
if 'things in the Soudan that it ia hard to
onn any very nettled ideas as to what I'D
really occurring thero. In one ( olcgram
wo road that the Mohdi is carrying all
Hjforo him , ia another that the governor
of Dongolu has signally worsted him in

lorod with all ita garrison to ita bo-
eaftuorint ; fanatical hordes. What

lationt when her doctors disagree thus ?
Throughout all the confusion flickers up
once and awhile mention of some fresh
top made towards fulfilling the promise
hat at some remote period an expedition
or the relief of General Gordon will bo
ispatchod. But oven thia much-mooted
vent ia seemingly liable to suffer from
ho ups and downs of England's political
roathor , and the date aa originally fixed
IBS already undergone severe relapses.

The chief political issue in the ap
preaching ejection of members of th
Gorman Reichstag ia the colonial and in
Buranco policy of the government. Th
conservatives wish to push colonial extensions
tensions , and to form national fire an
lifo insurance companies. The liberal
oppose these auccessivo efforts to con
trallza business affairs Under imporia
Buporviaion. The campaign ia being ncn
conducted on theao linoa , although th
day of the election haa not yet boot
fixed. Prince Bismarck in a rccen
speech rather discouraged colonial acqul
attion , but advocated a policy of stric
protection of colonial interests. Thor
Bcoma o bo a kind of jinco ; tidal wav
rasing over the world thia year. Franc
haa got as many fingers as she has got in
foreign pics ; Germany is struggling for
vigorouscolonlalpolicy. England is addin
to her foreign responsibility in spite o
her liberal government and Russia ii on
a still hunt in Asia.
The annual monomvroa of the Gcrmar
fleet , which have recently taken place a
Kiel , it seems were far from creditabl
aa a display of seamanship. The mos
trusted observers of the Gorman govern
inont have now reported to Prince Bis
marck that the fleet made a miserable
exeibition of itself. Tnls indeed mus
bo quito galling to the pride of tha
statesman , whoso lively ambition it haa
long been to make the position of the
empire relatively aa strong with ita
naval force aa with ita army.
But really the chancolior has only him
self to blame for the shortcomings of his
fleet. Since the establishment of the
Gentian navy only a few years ago , ho
has blindly acted upon the strange theory
that a Prussian general is capable of do
ing all things , and experience to the con
trary does not servo to take the baudapes
from his cyea A few ycara ago , when
General Von Stosch was in command ol
the fleet , the Croat ironclad fiigato Kur-
furrst was sunk in the English Channo
by a sister ship through careless manoeu-
voring on both bides , and there waa a
dreadful losa of lifo aa well as property.
This disaster eventually cost Genera'
Von Stosch , who had suddenly boenmado
an anmiral , hia position , although noth
ing else might reasonably have boon ex
pected from the custom of wearing spurs
on a quarter dock. The present high ad
miral of the Gorman navy , General Von
Dapriva , also wears spurs ; and , as
the natural consequence , there is nol
that progress made in the efficiency ol
the fleet which would doubtless bo wit
nessed if a trained sea-dog , who knows
marling-spikoa rather than spurs , were
ita con trollingspirit. Unfortunately for
Germany , her navy is so young thai
many years must pass before it is likely
to produce great'officera of true and ap
proved sea training. Until thia ia done

The lamentable condition of Cuba ap
pears to have forced the Spanish govorn-
nent to seriously consider a comprehon-
live plan of relief. Trustworthy reports
rom Madrid ahow that the committee on
oforma ia endeavoring to lighten the
jurdon of taxation in many ways. It is
iroposod that a part of the diplomatic
ixpunsca heretofore paid out of Cuban
rovonuoa shall hereafter bo paid out of
ho homo government ; that the island
shall in future pay only ita fair sharp of
nail subsidies ; that it shall not continue
: o pay expenses that should bo charged

lorta shall bo reduced , and tha-
; hocolonial tariffs which opprost

down or suppressed. It is also suggested
.hat a part of the taxes due shall bo re-
eased , and thatthn burden of debt shall
} Q decreased ! by conversion and

iaa at last discovered that nothing but a
onerous and lenient policy can prevent
inivoreal bankruptcy and ruin in Cuba ,

vowed object of extending the ejstom is
p make provision for the dls-

vent the recurrence of famine. Bn

wheat-producing area would bo brougr

athor from hia customer's face , and
ilozod his razor with a snap.
' What is the style of hair-cutting
.hia year)1' ) arkod a reporter.
"It is called the Pompadour by the
nosBCB , but the barbers know it as the
iylo that was all Uio rage when Jackson
vna president and which was called 'Old
Itckory' cnt. It consists in
laving the hair cut so that it
rill be longer in front aud grad-
tally dccrcaaom length toward tha back ,
rhich causes it to atand up and requires
io parting , Jackson used to wear his
lair combed back in th&t way , and for
, bout ton years during his tjmo it was all
ho rage , and then fell into disfavor ,
Phon when Grand Duke Alexis came
ivor wearing hia head piece in that man-
ier , the bloods all took it again , naming
t after him , and the "Alexius" had
[ Uitoarun. A short time after they
; ot tired of that , clippers came into use ,
nd over since young men and old have
osortod to it in summer in the mistaken
ilea that it waa healthy for the hair and
saentially cooling , both of which con
tusions are erroneous. "
"Why ? "
"In the ( lost place , these who have
nado the covering o ( the scalp a
tudy are by , uo mentis
greed that frequent cutting is
icnoficial , and , in fact , the impression is
aining strength right along that the hair
f the hsad can got along without so
luch short clipping , just aa the beard
ocs. When Iho razor is agplled too fro-
uently to the face , the sources of the
air's nutrition are weakened , the hair
rows out a certain length and splits , and
i nine cases gut of ten the beard is
uinod. Moro than ono fine face orna-
lent has boon spoiled by indulging in
uch foolishness , aud I can t BOO why the
wno Uws don't govern the top of th o
ead , "
' It IB certainly moro cooling to bo
lose-croppod , "
"It doesn't necessarily follow , Nov
body will say that the hone standing ot
in the aun would bo cooler if ho had a
hia coat clipped oil and the sun wet
allowed to strike hia unprotected float
His hair is as much a protection again ;
the heat aa against the cold , and in a coi
tain sense the case ia similar to mac
IIo , too , should hare a medium thio
layer of hair , as it tend * to maintain a :
equable temperature of the scalp an
acts as a shield against the glare of th
sun. Besides , there is nothing more prc
ductivo of catarrh , colds , headaches , an
other head troubles that surprise peopl
when the weather is hot than the Sin
Sing cut. One with such short hair cai
not take hia hat off ont-doors withou
rnnnintc the risk of catching a bad cold
and the quick evaporation of porspiratio :
from the scalp invariably is fraught wit !
evil results. "
"Ia the nape of the nock shaved a
formerly ? "
'Oh , no , that is the old Gorman style
It used to bo the custon to shave the hai
in a circle at the nnpo , but is now simpl ;
an evidence of cheap work , and in don
only by the barbers who don't core
to stop and do it properly. A con pi
of strokes of the razor and the customo
is polished oft" by the old way , but by th
prevailing mode a barber shingles th
hair aa it grows naturally , and applies m
razor except at the sides. This ia i
tndious , difficult tank , and requires a
much work almost aa cutting the hair. I
looks specially becoming on people witl
long necks , aa it tends to conceal tin
prominence. "
"Docs the Pompadour style incroasi
your business ? "
"I am glad to say that it does very nn
torially , and I am glad to see that thi
clipping craze is dying out. Customer )
who used to gor clipped in the spring one
not got their head touched ngain till fal
are compelled to cotno in twice a montt
to have their hair 'graduated , ' and semi
of my most finical patrons got their hail
trimmed once or twice a week. Yes , it it
a decided improvement for both the treated
od and the trcator.

_ There is a cheap clothing dealer on
Koarny , near California , whoso confi
dence in mankind boa received a severe
setback. The other day an honest-look-

said :
"You remember that second-hand over
coat I bought hero for $8 yesterday ? "
"Neverdakos pact anything von
vouco solt my front , " said the hand-mo-
"Ohl that's all right. I just wanted
to say that I found this $500 bill sowed

call for it. "
"Of gorao ho vill ho has call already ,

eagerly capturing the money. "You ish

When the honest customer got around
the corner ho murmured softly : "I guess
I'd bettor take this fifty and skip up to

that counterfeit. Its getting mighty hard
to above the 'queer' round these parts and
that's a fact. "
