I.NCOLN ] eb. 17-Speelnl.-There { ) Is
an active lobby at work IIhlng the bill to
sell the sanitarium nt Milford for 1 new
soldiers' lmoimie. This measure I known as
one or the 'toamied" bills arHl wi receive
the closest scrutn ) The commissioner or
public lands and , bulllns has declared hll-
self fa\orJhle to I Every supply contractor
for stAte Ilttutons Is working In Its Interest -
terest Pholographlc views of the building
and grounds Illjacent to the Milton ! Mnl-
tarlul are on exhibiton In the office or
hand , Commissioner Russell.
Parties thoroughly vested In the mater
Present cogent reasons why another soldiers'
homo should not be inaugurated at Milford.
They 110lnt first to time veil known economic
proposition ) or concentration. A thousand ,
veterans can be comfortably provided for
nt Grand Island at a far leds cost lIeI capita
than could [ 00 each at 11lord nnd 011\1
Island They also ask I to be relemhere,1
that the bill now lel\lng , while It ofers
to dOlatc the rent of the sanIarium [ reefer
for Iwo years , Iu reality contemillates un-
loading the institution at aim enormous figure
on the slate In the cmiii. Tim scheme Is also
cpposell by a nnmber of veterans , who SAY
that the ) " can cnly discover the speculatve
eSSence or the nmeasumro. One of them test-
led Ihat time old soldiers desired to be to
gelher at ono Ioint I more room was
wan led vote an aPllroprlatlon to the OralI
sand ] imommie . Ind en largo It. The Soldiers'
hOle , ho InsIsted , was an Instuton In
which alt time vlerans took n great dent
of Interest ant cr which they wem 11rond.
For one ho wanted ! to ace tIme mOley the
state had to expend placed on one Instuton
and not dissipated and frittered away. The
establshment of two homes would divide
amid weaken Interest In the Institution. I
time Milford sanlnrlum were al once turned
over to time state In fee shlple It would
necessltato n great outlay of money to put
It In fit condition for n comfortable home for
soldiers. There woull commie also , the dc-
mlli for pnolher commandant amid mere sal-
arlell omcers lie was opposed to It ,
. It Is Iluito evident hat t I time promoters of [
the Millard saniarIum scheme are banking
on time Inluence oC \ 'Iectcran element they
\1'1 be dIsappointed. I Is 11c\ thAt lellS-
" "
lat\o "oltor& may voice theIr buncombe
on the fcoI 10 the efcct lhat the old sol-
diers or Nebraska are anxious to divide Into
squads amid scatter over the state In Ilelached
bodies. , tull if mnammy of the veterans are hon- :
cst In their expressions the ) want to bo all
together In one immstitutiois .
There Is nnother elelent whIch Ilraclcaly
caters into time consideration of dUlllcatn ,
soldiers' homcs. ' 'lse Inslulons arc dl- :
ferent from others In lhelr class , In that
they are not for al time . like ' hospials , nsy- :
hlms , universities or normAl schools. The )
are not Institutions at which attendance Is I
likely to Increase In an exact ratio with in.

membership will soon have been reacimed an , m
thcn wi follow the Ilathelc and sorrowful I

home will be all too larlo for time few sun'lv-
lug membcrs of a glorious army. I hardly ,
allpears to be economic polcy for the state
