2 THE OMAHA DAILY BEEU TUESDAY. MAST 8. 189'i. STUDENTS' ' ZEAL TOO GREAT light Against Btalo University Orator HoMullcn Becoming Serious , ALL OVER THE ORATORICAL CONTEST Urnft Extracted from tlio Mnil mill Ap propriated Arrrt Mkrly lei Ho * Made Anlnmtril Scenes nt the College. 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 forgery. 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.

The resolutions were adopted alter a hot fight.McMullcn McMullcn was represented by a son of 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 Falls City , a son of ex-Congressman Weaver , also made an eloquent speech , On the other aide two letters were pro duced , one from Walt Maxon ot Ilcatrlco nnd the other from Will Ovrcn Jones of this city , the former claiming thnt McMullen had ap plied to him , and the latter that he had ap plied to Blatby of the Lincoln Journal , offerIng - Ing money for an oration to bo delivered by a friend. Attorney Strode refused to permit McMullen to make any defense before the student body , saying that the defense would bo mndo before the faculty at the proper time. 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. OUAVKLBY'S SECOND TRIAL. Qroen Graveley , a colored man , was ar raigned for trial before Judge Strode today on Iho charge of murder In the first degree. Gr.iveley's victim was the notorious Clinrllo Thomas.

Graveley was convicted of murder In the second degree and sentenced to fifteen years In the penitentiary. The supreme court a fe\v weeks ago granted him a now trial on the ground thai the lower court erred In In structing the Jury that the burden of proof rested upon the defense to show self-defense. M. P. Unruh , a saloon keeper of Steele City , Jefferson county , was arrested here today upon a warrant sworn out by S. Scllgsohn of this city on the charge of obtaining goods under false pretenses. Sellgsohn sold Unruh a bill of wet goods upon the lattcr's repre sentation that he was financially well fixed. Unruh Is endeavoring to compromise the matter. I. M. Haymond , a well known wholesale grocer of Lincoln today formally announced himself as a candidate for the republican nomination for governor.

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. Doxendalc pitched a very pretty game and once more demonstrated that ho Is a comer. The least said about Mr. Burrls the better. The score contains his full history. Hero it is : OMAHA.

Tonight , In ono of the hardest fights seen hero , In a long time , Young Orlffo was declared the winner over Hilly Murphy nt the end of the eighth round.

They came together at once in a rapid exchange , 0riffo landing his right twlco lightly on Murphy's eye. It was an oven thing to the finish. The second round was warm.

It 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 good ones on Qrlffo's body. GrliTo got In his left twlco In rapid succession in the fourth round , and the blood began to flow down Murphy's cheek. Grlffo was doing all the lending , while Murphy seemed content to watt. watt.Tho The fifth and sixth rounds were warm ones.
