LINCOLN , May 7" ( Special Telegram to
The Dee. ) The controversy over the orator
ical contest at the State university 1ms got
beyond n sqtiabblo In collegiate politics and
assumed n most serious phase. An Investi
gation was started this afternoon , at the end
of which wilt bo the arrest of ono or moro
parties , presumably university students , on
two serious charges , one being for robbing
the United States mails and the other for
The State Oratorical association pays the
expenses of the Nebraska representative to
the Interstate contest. This year Urn asso
ciation treasury Is empty nnd McMullen's
opponents boasted that they would prevent
his. trip to Indianapolis by hook or crook. In
his anxiety McMullcn wrote to his father
nt Beatrice for the money necessary to pay
his expenses to Indianapolis. Ho received
no response and Saturday.wrote ngaln. This
morning his father wrote him a letter in
which ho stated that $30 had been sent In
a previous letter ; that It had been sent In the
form of a draft ; that the draft had been
cashed at the German National bank at Lin
coln nnd returned to the bank of Issue at
Wymore. , . . < r
An examination of the draft showed that
It had been endorsed with the name of Adam
McMuIlen In lead pencil. McMullen , sr. ,
pronounced the lead pencil plgnaturo a for
gery at once. The letter to McMullen was
addressed In care of the State university
nnd was delivered to that Institution and
placed In the regular receptacle where nil
students had access to It. Student McMullon
declares that ho never received the drafter
or the letter and never know that either
had been sent him until so informed by his
father In n second letter. Ho declares fur
ther that he was never In the Herman
National bank In his life. The bank teller
who cashed the draft with the forged en
dorsement states that ho believes ho can
Identify the person who cashed the draft.
The university faculty has been In secret
session since G o'clock this afternoon.
The controversy over McMullon's alleged
conduct In concctlon with the oratorical con
test , by which ho becomes the stale's rep
resentative In the Interstate oratorical con
test , was taken up by the students tills
afternoon In ono of the most exciting and
turbulent mass meetings ever held In Urn his
tory of the university , nearly 1,000 students
crowding Into the chapel to cither partici
pate In the meeting or to listen to the Inter
esting developments promised. Williams
presided and Jones acted as secretary. A
riot was almost precipitated by Flsner , one
of the editors of the Ifcsperlan , who offered
> h& following resolutions :
JIESOLUTIONS THAT MADE THE ROW.
In so far ns late developments In connec
tion with the recent local oratorical contest
tind ns the contest throws the students of
the University of Nebraska in bad ippute
before the public , nnd since long continued
Hllencc on the part of the students would
ieom to Indicate that they do not condemn
the action of Adam McMullen , In that he
is known to have offered money on two
ocasslona to men of more than ordinary
ability as writers. In return for which they
were to furnish him an orntlon which would
win first , place In thev local oratorical const -
st of thu university * ami which would , or
presumably would have been used in the
Btato oratorical contest ; therefore , be It
IlePolved , That we , 'the students ot the
TJnlvcrally of Nebraska , In convention as
sembled , * do now , openly and publicly , con-
demn'8Uch action on the. part of the afore-
Bald McMullen , deeming It an Injustice to
those who entered life contest In good faith
nnd an Imposition upon the students In gen- ,
cral ; and be It further
Resolved , That , although his attempts to
Becure an oration In these two cases seem
to Jiave been successful , yet. In view of the
facts , nnd furthermore , slnce-a prominent
attorney of Lincoln ppenly acknowledses in
a leading dally newspaper of our city that
the oration , "Jtlalnn- the Man , " was devel
oped under his eye , serving to show that
the above named oration was not wholly , If
not all , his own production ; we hereby
request that Adam McMullcn be not allowed
to represent us and the stateof Nebraska
nt the coming Interstate oratorical contest
to be held at Indianapolis , Ind. ; and be It
Hcsolved , That copies of these resolutions
bo submitted to the chancellor nnd the fac

JudRQ Strode , a prnctlclnR attorney at the
Inncnnter county bar , although still a
ntudent ot the university. A strenuous effort
waa made by the students to prevent htm
from appearing , but the sense of fair play
finally overcame the opposition. Weaver of

also made an eloquent speech ,
On the other aide two letters were pro

the former claiming thnt McMullen had ap

a friend. Attorney Strode refused to permit
McMullen to make any defense before the
student body , saying that the defense would

The resolutions were- finally adopted after
the battle had waged with tierce intensity
for more than three hours , the vote standing
319 to 150 , many students declining lo vote.
The meetlnit was the most bitter ever held
In the university. During Its progress
hundreds of students were on their feet de
manding recognition. Charges and counter
charges flew across the hall and many per
sonal encounters were narrowly averted.
Nothing In the history of the university has
so shaken the Institution to Its foundation
as the present controversy.

A total of sixty-two bases on clean hitting
In a professional game of ball ! That Is what
the Uourko family did yesterday afternoon
with the shoemakers from Jacksonville.
Ton homo runs In a single professional
game of ball ! Omaha mndo 'em yesterday.
Four homo runs by a single player In a
professional game of ball ! Jack Munyun
mndo 'cm yesterday afternoon , besides two
doubles and flva runs.
Uut that wasn't nil of it just a starter.
Fear made n. brace of homers , while Scery ,
McVey , Wood and Moran made ono each.
But to epitomize. Omaha made twenty-
eight hits with a total of sixty-two bases ,
twcnty-nlno runs and but a single error , an
excusable ono by Munyun. On the other
hand the Jacksonvllles made fourteen hits
with a total of twenty-six bases , ten runs
and but three errors.
So nil together It was a pretty lively sort
of a game , and a well played ono at that.
Notwithstanding these redeeming facts It
was excessively tiresome , and failed to
nrouse enthusiasm. The bleachers did a
good deal of guying and that was all. There
was too much hitting to awaken the rlslbles
of the crowd , and the best a home run could
do was to evoke a loud guffaw in the stands.
Even homo runs became monotonous.
It would require a good day's work to
write n description of this wonderful after
noon's work , and occupy a page In The Dee ,
so It Is omitted this time.

The men lost no tlnio In getting toccthor

was glvo and take for the next minute , with
the odds in favor of Murphy. Grlfto secured
first blood , landing his left on Murphy's
nose with good effect.
Murphy seemed tired when the men re
sponded for the third round , and Grlffo
went at him with n view to finishing him.
Murphy went to his knees from ! n right
hander on the jaw , but was up at once nnd
hot at It. Murphy managed to get In a few

the spectators by the poor form he dis
played throughout , though the fight was
fast and furious at times. The first to the

Englishman down. The latter recovered
quickly and delivered some left hand
punches which did not do much harm. The
