URB , I lltt'J I1 STIIBKT , V LINCOLN , Juno 13. I Commencement proper ot tlio University of Nebraska of ' 8U now belongs to the history of tliu Institution. Indeed , tlio proijrntnm.es 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.

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. Collins. 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.

Uut little transpired in' connection with the engineers' controversy with the ofllclala of the Union Pacific yesterday. General Man- ngor Kimbnll infotined the commltlco that , nmsinticli in the Knnsns Central was opor- itcd Independently of the Union Paelllc , ho ins no jurisdiction over It , m.d cotiscucntly ] could not pans upon any mutter which came up Involving tlio fottuor road' Authority in the promises , ho Raid , rested with the vlco president. In view of this fact , Vicq President Ilolcomb , who la in Portland , lias been informed bv telegraph tlio grounds upon which thu controversy Is bused , uud liis reply Is being iiwnited. The engineers ituto tlml If Manager lialdwln is sustained by the vlcu president , more ulTcctlvo means will bo UHod to ( 'nln tnolr point than an up- lical for at bit ration. They Htato that the rc- 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 Unlun Paeillu said : "Of course , wo do not rourt a strike. Wo Imvo mlles of unpro tected road , and thoimuda of dollars worth of unprotected rolling stock , and we know how n Etrllio would rusnlt. Thu trouble will not extend BO far ns that. " The oniclal indicated that , If necessary , the company would concede thu demand of the engineers. _ UNION PACIFIC ) CHANGES. Oiiiiiinliiu niui Dickinson In thu lilno of I'roiiintton. Thu consolldatlnn of the propriotory lines nnd branches lu the wos'orn territory of the Union Pacific mcann a radtc.il chuugo In the olllclal ranks uf that company. It * was learned that , upon the completion of the con- Bolidatlon , G. M. Ciunmlng , now assistant. general manager of the Union Pacific , in charge ot the hues In the territory west of Chcyoiino , Is to bu made general manager of the consolidated system , with headquarters ut either Ugdcn or Salt Lake. The lines of the Union Paelllc proper , from Cheyenne west , now under the jurisdiction of G. M. Cummliig. will be placed under the jurisdiction of R Dickinson , assistant gen eral manager of the Union Pacific , with hc.idquai tors In this city. This will give Mr. Dickinson control of the main line between Omaha und Ogden , and , practically , control of the entire Union Paritlu system. It has also boon learned tlmt Vice Presi dent Ilolcomb has a matter under consider ation which means the abandonment of the present form of operating two assistant mineral uuuiapcrs and the reestablishment - establishment of the department of general superintendent with E. Duikcu- son in that capacity ; or the abolition of tlio department of assistant general manager of the western portion of the system. In the absence of Mr. Holcomb , however , nothing definite could bo ascertained concerning the change. It Is well understood that the introduction of the present system of oper.xtniK the road has resulted unsatisfactorily In the greater part because ! of the alleged incompotcncy of a certain oOlsiul. 311SKTTIIK CUT. The Omnlia-Cliicngo Lines Preparing for n linti ; ItcUuction. 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 tative of ouo of the Chicago lines stated that , in all probability , the cut would bo made nud that the same would be announced in a few days. The Depot Mini Hole. Numerous complaints are made of the mud hole west of the Union Pacific depot. At all times mud und slush to the depth or several Inchon may bo found there. Ex pressmen , hack drivers and others who are compelled to use the place , nro obliged to drive their horses and vehicles through the mud , and oftentimes take a Jauut through it ou foot themselves.

It is now held by Ticket Agent Fonda. The report that W. P. Harris is to succeed C. S. Mellon as trafile manager of the Unlou Pacillo is pronounced absolutely groundless. The ofllcials of the Union Pacific state that the local Omaha nnd Grand Island train is being extensively patronized. Paul Grubor , commercial agent for the Missouri , Kansas & Texas at Kuusas City , Is lu town. Thomas Godfrey , of the Missouri Pacific ; Thomas Miller , nf the Hurlington , und K. L.

The coroner's ' Inquest on the remains of .ho child was hold ycstordny morning , nnd niter n thorough examination had been mode , resulted In the following verdict : "We , the jury , find that the said baby Mo.vcr cnmo to bur death from the effects of carbolic ncld administered by some person or persons unknown.1' The first wltneM was Dr. .1. E. Somcrs , who held the nost-i'iiortcm examination. Ho : cstlflcd that the InfnnVs face , neck , lips , .OIIRUO und throat were badly burned oiUl jllsterod ns from the ndmlnlstration ot car bolic actd. The stomach was found to bo normal. The burna above described were 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 ant , eight montht u o. She didn't Icnow bis natno. Ho nad loft town.

Lena told her she did not know wiio gave baby the poison. William Ellerslck tcstllled in substance the sauio as above , and Dr. Alexander gave a mlnuto description of the in 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 stantial evidence against the mother suf ficient to justify the Jlliiiir of information ngnlnst Her lor infuntcidc , which will bo done ns &oou us he has had an opportunity to question tlio girl horsulf. The finhy nnd the Dog : . The little waif who was left nt the gate of the Open Door.Mondnv night is doing well. The dog which was watching over him at the time of its abandonment is still greatly at tached to the child and readily singles it out from the other six or eight babies.

These people - plo will bo seen by Mrs. Clark , who will en deavor to find the parents of the little fel low.

Hlley < t Co. hold the contract for cedar block paving on sand nnd plank at ? l.ilK : I'd" ' yard , and the latest combine , 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.

Thrco wounds were found-on the body of the man , ono through the breast , another plercca the heart and the third was in tlio right hand. Either of the first two wounds would ordinarily result In Instant death and preclude The possibility of indicting on himself the other two wounds , Tito loft arm was broken and in that condi tion * . it would huvo been impossible for him to climb tbo troa from which ho was bunging. Another suspicious fealuro is tlio fact that the revolver found on the ground below him hud only ono exploded shell , although the body showed that thrco different shots hud boon 11 fed. Tbo theory advanced is that Nelson was murdered and then hung to the tree to cause the belief that ho had suicided. A revolver was thrown on the ground , possibly by ono of the mur derers , but in the hurry ho neglected to have the number of exploded shell * correspond with the number of wouuds. A CATT.liK CASK.

The funeral of Peter \Vost occurred yes- tordny afternoon at IlitHl under the auspices of the Masonic fraternities of the city. The oortogo started from Masonic tiunplc , headed by Dalboy's band ploying n dirge. Tlio body was interred In nlrvlow cemetery. The Marshalltown band was out last evening nnd serenaded the board of control , the press cluu und Tin : llii : : office. The or ganization rendered some excellent music. This band is ono of the best In attendance at the tournament , and added much to the at tractiveness of tlio parade , ns well as to the programme nt the fair grounds. All the banks of the city will close this nftornoon ut 1 o'clock. The disposition seems to bo growing to make to-day u general holi day nnd u movement was started last evenIng - Ing to get nil the stores and business "houses to eloso. Unless such a movement is sue' cessful the largo foreo of clerks in the city will got to see nothing more of the tourna ment than they can see through the shop windows. 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 and Indiscriminate stealing. At (1 ( o'clock last evening n team driven by Mr. Hlllotts. u grocorymnn at Ponoy Crook , near this' cityi became frightened while nasslng the now building on Lower Main street und ran away. Tlio spring wagon to which they wuro attached was upset , and the occupants , four in number , wcro thrown violently to the pavement. The driver was 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. .Editors. All visiting editors in the city attending the tournament are invited to make their headquarters at the Press club rooms , No. 18 Pcnrl street , up stairs. Writing material on bund for all who desire , and the brethren are invited to take churgo of the room , visit , attend to their correspondence nnd make themselves thoroughly nt home. Attempted Abduction. The attempted abduction of thu little 2-year-old child of J. A. Hess , the restaurant man , appears to bo more serious than was ut first supposed. It was clearly mi attempt to kidnap the child , und force would have been used to tuko from the -old it lllycaold nurse girl who was wheeling it uloug Noi th Soy- unth street if thu girl's screams hud not brought assistance. The abductors were in a covered wagon and drove rapidly nwav after they were frustrated in their attempt. Stockholders' Mcitting.
