Commencement proper ot tlio University
of Nebraska of ' 8U now belongs to the history
of tliu Institution. Indeed , tlio
of the week Imvo nil boon rendered , commis
sions presented and degrees conferred. In
Conception , the programme * wcro calculated
to raise the expectations of the public , nnd it
was not disappointed. A feast of good tilings
intellcclunlly proved to bo in store from first
to last. From the society exhibition of tbo
"honors of the year , " prosontud atFutiKe's
opera house lo-dny by the graduating class ,
the programmes were good.
At 0 : 0 o'clock this morning the proces
sion , which had formed nt the university a
few minutes before , appeared ut the ITuiiici ; .
heudcd by thu cadet bund , nnd at the hour
for the commencement of the exercises every
scat In the pnrquot nnd cullory was occu
pied , and standing room In the circles with
out could hnrdly bo obtained. It was cor-
tntnly u happy hour for the twonty-llvo
young ladies and gentlemen \vlio
expected to honr thu chancellor
pronounce them graduated an hour or two
later. Seated upon the stage were stnto dig-
nlturics , ministers , the university faculty , the
board of regents nnd a number of others.
While the room was not decorated , the hand ;
Bomo bouiUotB | gathered for the graduating
class rclloved all barrenness.
The brilliant notes of the overture "llrldul
Koso , " by the Cndotband , tilled the room as
the city clock struck the hour of ten. JJjt
Htlllnuss reigned when Hov. Ir. Ilowltt , pus-
tor of the Church of the Holv Trlnty , pro
nounced the Invocation. Tlio prayer was
fervent mid touching , breathing that rovcr-
cnco duo to the "King of Kings , " when a
gloat Institution of learning sends upon the
world a "llnixhcd clasH" to aid In settling tlio
problem of human life. The stillness was
broken by the university chorus and orches
tra rendering llayden's "Tho Heavens are
trolling. "
Helen 13. Aughcy followed with the first
oration , "Poetlo Element in Science , "
and she presented n graceful
and attractive appearance oa the
stage * Miss Augney's delivery was
earnest and her articulation excellent , and ,
bettor still , hqr subject matter was well nr-
ranged and thoughtful.
The second orator , E. U. TInglcy , spoke on
the subject of "Two Radicals.Vhilo dis
tinct and clear ho was too stiff and formal ,
mid Ills oration failed to crcat the impression
that it otherwise would.
Churk'u 13. Newcomer followed. The sub
ject of his oration was "Sir .Tohu Eliot. "
"Two Pre-hlstoric Patriots" was the sub
ject of O.V. . Flfer's oration. Ho lacked
deliberation in style but was. nevertheless ,
distinctly understood.
As a respite from oratory , Mmo. Weber
sang n cavntlnn , Irom "Uobert lo Diablo , "
and the repeated encores following attested
the appreciation of her effort by the audi-
onco. The applause was so pronounced that
she returned and rendered a simple ballad ,
provoking such u storm of applause as to bo
compelled to return to the stage again and
bonr acknowledgements.
\Vllliam L. Stephens followed with a
eulogy upon "Henry David Thoreau. "
Next und last appeared Miss Myra E.
Clark , who chose Wendell Phillips as the
subject for her or.ition. She was clear , for
cible and distinct und grace itself.
At the close of Miss Clark's oration , Act
ing Chancellor Ucssoy conferred the degrees
on the class. It presented quite an imposing
array. The degree of U. L. was conferred
on T. S. Allen , G. A. iJaugktuan. Miss Jen-
1110 Bonnoll , Miss Edna Uullock. O. W. Fifor.
Miss Myra Clark , Miss May Tower , W. N.
Flutchcr , D. D. Forsyth , C. M. French , C.
\V. Blgolow , Alfred Pizey. Tlio degree of
13. S3. was received by Miss Helen Aughcy ,
M. 7. Uisrelow , K. H. TmgleiS H J. Webber ,
T. A. Williams. Tlio degree of A. 13. was
conferred on F. W. Collins , G. W. Gorvvlg ,
Miss Laura Haggard , and W. L. Stephens.
The degree of 13. C. E. was received by E. Q.
Eagloson and F. A. Munley.
On the part of the state Governor Thaver
presented commissions as officers in the Uni
versity cadets , " in a brief but appropriate
speech , to the following : Captains , G. H.
Uaughnian , VV. N. Fletcher. G. W. Gorwlg.
nnd H. J. Webber ; first lieutenants , E. G.
Eaglesou , C. 13. Newcomer. W. L. Stephens ,
nndO..W , Fifer ; second lieutenant , F. W.
With the fantasio "Ein Mncrehen , " by
the orchestra the audience dispersed. So
ends ono ot the most successful and onjoyu-
blu commencements ever known in the
history of the stuto university.
The reception given by the faculty to the
friends of the university to-night , at Grant
Memorial hall , was attended by fully 1.50C
pcoplo. It was the grand llualo of the week.

iluced scale v/ill not be accujittd , and this , it
Is thought , moans that n strlku will follow.
Concerning the nubjcct , nu oniclal of the

of unprotected rolling stock , and we know

The oniclal indicated that , If necessary ,
the company would concede thu demand of

learned that , upon the completion of the con-

of G. M. Cummliig. will be placed under the
jurisdiction of R Dickinson , assistant gen

Dickinson control of the main line between
Omaha und Ogden , and , practically , control
of the entire Union Paritlu system.

It Is well understood that the introduction
of the present system of oper.xtniK the road

There are strong indications that the lown
lines between Clucaco and Omaha will make
a cut of 40 per cent in freight rates iu order
to meet the cut of the lines to St. Paul.
General Manager Hurt and General Freight
Agent Morcbouse , of the Elkhorn , have gone
to Chicago , where u meeting of the Western
Freight association has been called to con
sider this question. If the breach on the
northern roads is not closed , the Iowa lines
will bo forced to malto the reduction. The
wholcsacl dealers and jobbers of Omaha are
prepaiing for thu emergency , and , iu case
the rates are put down to the projiosed notch ,
they will take advui.tacu of the change mid
Jny in a largo supply of goods. A represen

in all probability , the cut would bo made nud
that the same would be announced in a few

BUfllciont to cause death.
Mrs. G. W. Clark , of the Open
Door , testified that William Ellcr-
siuk , Lonn Moyor's brother-in-law , brought
lier nnd her buby to the Open Door
shortly after 3 o'clock Tuesday morning ,
lillorsIclt said to her when ho placed the baby
in her arms , "I think the girl [ tlio mot her 1
is crazy , because she attempted to poison her
linby. " Mrs. Clark asked him what poison
Lho mother hud usednnd the witness replied ,
"Carbolic acid. " 'Iho mother disclaimed any
knowledge of how her babocamcto its death.
The buby died yesterday nt 1 o'clock. Lcnn
slept all last night , and manifested no un-
euslncss or sorrow.
Mary Ellorslcic , Lena's sister , testified
that Lena was not quite eighteen. She did
not know that her sister was in the family
way until n day or so before the birth
of tlio child. Lena had told her
she had been outraged by n stranger
who had stopped at Ellorsiek's
house when the latter was keeping n restaur

fant's injuries. Tney wore sufficient to
causa death , but ho thouirht at ono time the
chllu would recover. Ho didn't know who
suggested the removal of the mother und
babe to the Ouen Door. He gave his con
sent , liowevor , to the removal. The transfer
was made In the night to avoid exposure.
The girl repeatedly told the doctor tiiat she
did not have anything to do with giving the
babe the acid , nor did she know who had
given it.
Assistant County Attorney Shea , who
conducted the inquest , considers thu circum

Co. , or hotter , the possessor by purchase of

vldo interest in cedar block paving on con
cretes nt Sl.tll per yard. Mr Nauglo is also
thi ) posscssoi of several monster piles of
cedar poles , which ho intended using to ful
fill his paving contract.
J. E. Hlley < t Co. hold the contract for
cedar block paving on sand nnd plank at

if rumor Is correct , is between Klli'.v & Co. ,
and the old time contractois to ruin Nnuglo's
chances of making uny money out of bis con
tract. liilny & Co. have an army of solici
tors out getting property owners to sign pe
titions for paving of ecdar block on sand und
plank , and have secured a largo share of the
work. Nuuiflo thought ho hud secured eight
blocks on Clark street for n surety , und ux-
pected to begin work there almost immedi
ately , but at Tuesday nigtit's meeting of the
council , in compliance with a long petition
from property owners , the street in question
was ordered paved with cedar Utock on sand
and plank.
Tlits is said to bo ono of the combines.
Con Gallagher , it is alleged , has another.
"Uyjovo , " said he , "it is not a combina
tion of the old-timeis against Nnuglo , but a
combination of Nnuglo nnd the Nebraska
National bank ngninst tbo old tuners.
"J. W. Furness is n contractor living somewhere -

for laying sandstone paving on sand at . ' .33.
Smco that contract was awarded Nauglo has

leged , Nauglo knew , when hn purchased , that
the contract could not bo filled at the price ,
but ho had no intention of filling it. Ho
doesn't want to see any stone paving laid in
Omaha this .year , and. controlling the con
tract tor sandstone as ho does , you will tlnd
that that material will not bo uruod for the

was interred In nlrvlow cemetery.
The Marshalltown band was out last

the press cluu und Tin : llii : : office. The or
ganization rendered some excellent music.
This band is ono of the best In attendance at

tractiveness of tlio parade , ns well as to the
programme nt the fair grounds.
All the banks of the city will close this

The rrooks got in their line work ut the
driving park yesterday afternoon. * Charles
Proctor was ono of tlio victims who lost n
line watch through the instrumentality of
some enterprising plckpocitct. Although
the crowd was lurco nnd the number of
crooks by no means limited , little work was
done , owing to the vlgllunco of the police.
Tlio lost day of the tournament is when they
will undoubtedly bo boldest , nnd for this
reason to-morrow will see some wholesale

seriously bruised nnd two women , Mrs.
Dressier aim Llda Burns , sustained serious
injury. Tlio former's arm wns broken in
two places und the latter was rendered in
sensible. They were taken to their homes
nnd medical assistance summoned.
Enthusiastic people estimate that 20,000
yards of decorating material was swung out
to the breezes yesterday morning nnd the
evening previous. There were but few
buildings in the city that wcro not decorated.
The Straub block , on Main street , occupied
by tlio Wlor-Shugart company and the
Empko Hnrdwaro company , wcro beauti
fully decorated. Aultmau , Miller it Co. , on
the opposite side of the street , was ono of
tlio most handsomely decorated buildings on
the street. The entire front , Including the
windows und entrance , was covered by tnin-
laturo mirrors , rellecting i > 13uukeye mower
that sits in the front of the building. The
decorations were very ingeniously contrived
nnd attracted u great deal of attention.
All visiting editors in the city attending
the tournament are invited to make their

brought assistance. The abductors were in
a covered wagon and drove rapidly nwav
after they were frustrated in their attempt.
