WAsm.NfiToN , To' ) . 1'i. [ Special Tele
gram. ] Senator Van Wyck has cairlcd his
point In hL flight for ths street car drheis of
this clly. They ha\e been worked iioin
fifteen to sixteen liouis out of every twenty-
four. Senator Van Wjck Introduced a rcso-
liillon In the senate calling for a statement
fiom the coinianyon | tlie subject. With the
rcDnitcaiiiu the announcement that thchouis
ofork had hccn reduced to twelve. To-day
thu presidents of the two companies w i'io ' bu-
foicn senate coininlttco , aim \vcic examined
on the subject. Senator Van Wyck con-
duclod the cxninlnntlon. Mr. Van \Vyck \
protested vigorously against what hotcimrd
the various forms .of Inhumanity In the ex
actions iiiiuie by the \ve.ilthy coipoiatlons
upon their employers. Ills believed a fur
ther ieduction of IIOIIIH will bo made without
n leductlon of the wages of the dilvei.s and
conductor. The street car employes are
voluble In their pialses of the senator from
Nebraska and wh'at ho has aheady done for
TIII : rA.voiiA.Mto INSULT.
The local press gives considerable ntten-
tlon this evening to the perversion of his-
toilcal facts as It Is proposed to lopicscnt the
battle of Bull Hun by a panorama company
hcic , mention of which Mas inailo in _ these
dispatches last night. Much comment has
been made alicady In union soldier circles ,
and a gieal deal of Indignation Is bcine
shown. It Is probable that aiesolntlon on
the subject will bo Intioduced In coiigiess In
quiring Into the sublecl , although every ouo
concedes that nothing can bo done to stop
the exhibition , bo the Insult over so llngiant.
An older moic positive and effective In char
acter , howeverthan the resolution published
In the dispatch of last night will bo promul
gated by the Giand Army posts of this
city , and which will be a boycott
In fact. Major Hopkins who Is commander
of Kit Carson post , In speaking ot this mat
ter to-day said that such a icpi oscillation
was veiy inappropriate to the capital of the
nation. A nation's victories In battle weio
the proud heritage of succeeding ceneiations ,
but to dwell upon Its defeats , to icpresent to
children the humiliation of their ancestors ,
was a spectacle that few nations would tol-
erato. A icpicsunttitfon ot the battle of
AVateiloo In Paris would not ba allowed for
one instant. Besides , ho thought now that
the disposition was not to glorify the cou-
fedeiatc patt in the great civil contest , but to
pass It by as a mistake and to rejoice hi a
united countiy. v

committed on naval nllairs , expressed his
views relative to the reconstruction of
the navy. Ho began with a iccoiii-
mcmlation that the uncompleted motois bo
completed. In his opinion the typo of ves
sel most needed by the navy was steel
cruisers. These now building weio good
lighting ships , andln time of war would piuvo
tlioelleotivouess of their armor and machine
guns. He thought the government should go
on icplaclug its wooden ships with these
cruiseis. Alter sufllclcnt appiomlatlon

diaw up plans and get the vauls into condi
tion to stait the work. The chaiinmn In-
qulied whether , In Ills opinion , pait of the
nppioprlation would bo setapait forconstruc-
tion ot ( lie torpedo boats. In answer to Mr.
Thomas , the secietaiy said ho thought it
would bo a wise policy to oiler private con-
tractois a bonus lorahpcodgi eater than called
for In the specification * , and also to impose n
penalty If tlio specified Imi.so power was not

vessels with a one bundled ton gun on each ,
and sailing around one of tlie big clumsy

Dr.s MOIN-KH , Iowa , Feb. 12. ( Special

the leorganlzatlon ot the stale judiciary.
The old system that has been In vogue for
thhty yeais has outlived Its usefulness mid Is
Inadequate to the present needs of the state.
In bomo counties the courts are two years
behind their dockets , and the present IcgU-
atnro Is expected to furnish relief. Various
bilk for this purpose have been Introduced ,
but the gcncinl sentiment In both houses
seems to favor the abolition ot the present
circuit court and the conferring uuon the
district court of the entire piobate , equity
and criminal jmisdictlou , with an incicaso
In the number of dhlrlet judges , as each
district may need.
Major Thompson , chairman of the house
commlflcc on rcoieanlzatlon of the judici
ary , said to-night that his committee had pre-
paied a bill for this purpose which was
nearly icady to bo submitted. It will pio-
vide lor abolishing the cheult couit ami thu
enlargement of the district court , and will
leduce thegiand juiy to not less than livener
nor moie than seven , and will provide that
all the cilminal cases , except manslaughter
and niuidcr , may bo tried on Infonnatlon ,
thus doing away with the giand jury Indict
ment. This will effect n great saving of ex
pense to the state , and It Is believed will nlso
facilitate the dispatch of business.
Senator Cat son , who Is chatiman of the
similar commiteo In the .senate , stated that a
majority of his committee lavoicd about the
same plan. This seems to be the gcncial sen

land the advisability of his glvingup his Pan-
Electric stock , so that there could be no ques
tion as to clean hands in pressing the hull
against the Bell telephone monopoly. Thurs
day Garland submitted a letter to the cabinet
meeting giving up his stock to a public in

sentative of tlie World called upon Attoiney
General Garland last evening to ask him to
whom he intended tiansferring Ills Pau-
Elcchio stock. Garland looked surmised
when the question was put to him : "I have
not said that 1 Intended tiansferring tlie
stock , " he said. "I have said to a number ot
gentlemen three months ago , and at the pre
sent time , that was willing to give up tlie
stock , but I do not know any one that would
take It. I never knew that the stock had a
maikct value. I am willing to do what is
right. I have asked a number of gentlemen
what I ought to do with the stock and they

A vnTEiuN\nv scnooi , .
Messrs. Burnham. Gere and other mem
bers of the board of regents of the State
university , met Thursday afternoon to
consider tlie subject of adding a professor
of veterinary science to the faculty. The
starting of such a school in connection
with the university was strongly urged
last summer by breeders of live stock
aiul endorsed by the state board of
agriculture. Since then a can
vass of the slate lias been made
and the regents now report that
there socms to be an almost unanimous
opinion amongf stockmen in favor of
such a move. The chief obstacle will bo
the , -ecuring of a proper teacher. Men
who combine the valuable traits of being
skillful practitioners and competent in
structors are rare. In veterinary science
more perhaps than in any Qthcr branch
it is one tiling to theorize and .something
very much dillercnt to practice. Were it
not that his entire time was bought by
the state the regents would probably se
lect Dr. Gerth. As it is , ho is out of the
question. Dr. Ramuciotti of Omaha , a
thoroughly competent man in every way.
lias been mentioned , but the drill just
now scorns to bo in favor of an eastern
man whoso immo the regents decline to
give. They waul , at least so they say , to
( lecido upon the main question ot whether
to start tlio school or not , before engag
ing a teuoher.
In Hiioh a state as Nebraska , vvlioro the
raising of live stock is ono of the heaviest
interests , a school of veterinary seienco
is almost necessary. Hut if it is to bo a
state institution the people should insist
that it bo of a high onlor. The work of
tlio state university in most of its depart
ments has never boon as satisfactory as
the taxpayers have a i ight to demand. If
the veterinary school is started it will bean
an auspicious time for inaugurating a re
form in this direction.
