LINCOLN , May 29. ( Special. ) There Is a
doubt expressed In the olllce of Governor
Itolcomb as to whether or not the present
flsh commission of the state of Nebraska Is
a legally organized body. In 1S93 Governor
Crcunsq appointed , during an Iritcrmlsslon
cf Ihe legislature , Lou May , H. II. Oakley
nnd Mr. Mclghed as a rtsh commission. The
last session of the senate , following the ap
pointment , failed to confirm these appoint
ments. Their terms expire In 1S95 , 1S96 nnd
1807 , Mr. May's being the first to explrci He
la an applicant for reappolntment. Governor
Holcomb has written to the president of Ihe
National Fish commission , expressing high
appreciation of the services of Mr. May , and
staling that should It bo decided that all
three appointments are now null , owing to
the failure of the senate to confirm , he would
take great pleasure In naming him as ono of
the three commissioners , llut he says there
lias never been a popullat member of the
commission , and should It transpire there
was but one vacancy ho should feel it In
cumbent on him to appoint a populist.

Eighty-eight of the bright youth of Omntm
sat beneath the star of hope on the stage of
Doyd's opera house last evening. It was the
annual High school commencement. A small
army of young men anil women stepped upon
the battlefield of life , with 'diplomas aa
weapons and school days as a mental ever
green of the past. The usual garb of white
lost none of Its time-honored popularity
among the "sweet girl graduates , " while
the slender young men who sat by their
sides looked manly In conventional black.
The air was thick with the fragrance of
flowers. Roses were visible everywhere. They
nestled In Psyche knots on the fair ones and
hold down the thumping hearts of the bash
ful young men who faced the biggest audi
ence of the season. The background of the
stage was a woodland scene , while hanging
from the top center of the stage flies was a
hugo floral display bearing the figures " 1833. "
Prof. Homer Low Is sat on the stage near
the wings. Near him sat President Akin ot
the Hoard of Education , Superintendent A.
P. Marble and Jonathan Edwards , llohlnd
the scenes were a number of mothers and
sisters , who attended to the preliminaries and
accompanied their sons and daughters to the
very threshold of their triumph.
It was a comparatively warm night , but
that made no material difference to the
rushing. Jostling crowd of the graduates'
friends , which jammed the entrance to the
opera housa as soon as the doors were
opened , A nominal admission fee was
charged. The opera house was profusely
decorated In honor of the event , The boxea
were draped with bunting ot white and blue
Intermingled with the High school colors.
The classes ot 'D3 and ' 91 occupied the
boxes. The seating capacity of the house
was not sufficient to accommodate the Im
mense crowd. It seemed as though "all
Omaha was there. " The foyer was packed
and scats on the radiators were at a pre
mium long before the clock struck the bout
ot S.
When the members of the graduating class
marched upon the stage they received an
ovation. The class of ' 95 , with colors ol
apple graen and white and a motto of "Nt
Tcntes Aut Perfloe , " consisted of :

Kplncopnls In ScMlon I.IMcn to the Mishap's
Annual AililrrM ,
The twenty-eighth annual council of the
diocese of Nebraska convened yesterday
at Trinity cathedral. Twenty-eight clergy
and forty lay delegates were In attendance.
The session was opened by the celebration
of the holy communion at 10 o'clock , Bishop
Worthlngton being the celebrant.
Rev. Carlen Goodale acted as cplstolar anJ
Very Rev. Dean Gardner as gospelar , Canon
Whltmarsh assisting.
In place ot a sermon the bishop read his
annual address , In which ho gave a sum
mary of the ton years' work of the diocese ;
noted the clerical changes , and deplored tlu
frequency of the changes In pastorates. The
clerical force had Increase ! In numbers , ho
said , but It has been touched by the restless
spirit of the age. This has tended to retard
the extension ot God's kingdom. Bo the
fault where It may , It liqd Interfered with
permanent work.
The Mission board , he said , had determined
on a revision of Its methods , the field now
to be divided Into four divisions under
four archdeacons. Attention was called to
derelictions In offerings for the Disabled
Clergy Fund , the Theological Fund and the
Episcopal Endowment Fund. This arose
In some parishes from a disregard of the
duirch resolutions passed supporting these
lines of work , The Importance of cultiva
ting the missionary spirit was dwelt upon
and the clergy reminded not to neglect to
keep the people Informed on the needs of
missionary work. The 'bishop hoped that
the evening celebration of the holy com
munion would be dispensed with , as un-
Cathollc and without satisfactory basis. Re
ferring to the pastoral letter to the House
of Bishops he said that It was not claimed
that It had a coercive power to bind the
clergy , but made very clear In theological
terms and ecclesiastical language that which
the church believed. It met a necessity
tn a time of disloyalty and faithlessness.
"Wo earnestly hope , " said the bishop , "that
the letter has been read In the churches of
the diocese and that Its contents have been
made the basis of clear and explicit in
struction from the pulpit. " Referring to
church statistics , the bishop said that the
educational Institutions were adequate to
the needs of the church. He complimented
the various charitable Institutions for their
merciful work and called attention to the
Importance of the labors of the Woman's
Auxiliary and the Brotherhood of St. An
drows. Every parish , he urged should
have both these lines of work well pushed to
the front.
After roll call and , the re-election of the
secretary and assistant secretary the coun
cil adjourned for lun'ph.
The afternoon session of the council was
ailed to order at 2:20 : o'clock and a number
f Important standing committees were ap
olnted by the bishop to make reports later

A feat which will astonish the scientific
world will be essayed by Paul Alexander
Johr.stone , the great mind reader , this after
noon at Courtland beach. At that hour Mr.
Johnstonc will dive into * the murky waters
and recover from Its slimy bed at the bottom
of the lake a privately marked needle which
had been previously thrown there by a com
mittee. Scientists have held that water was
an Impenetrable barrier to the transmission
of thought. On tomorrow Johnstonc will
demonstrate the fallacy of such a belief. The
feat is not altogether devoid of danger , but
on the other hand the per cent of danger
Is largely against the young psychological
student. Only once before has such a test
been attempted and that by Mr. Johnstone at
Kansas City , a week ago Sunday. At that
time Mr. Johnstone was thrown Into a state
bordering on complete catalepsy and It was
only by the hardest sort of work by attending
physicians that he was brought to a normal
condition. In regard to the attendant danger
of the feat Johnstono Jocularly remarked
to a Bee reporter : "I can afford to take such
risks. At best I can live but three years and
why not while I live give my time and life ,
If necessary , to the Interest of science.
If I die I can at least know that I lived In
the Interest of a good and worthy cause.
I am to scientists an enigma and If I can act
as a medium between scientists and the
occult beyond I will gladly do so. " The teat
will be held under the auspices of Sheriff
Drexel. Johnstone , heavily blindfolded , will
leave the Merchants hotel at 4 o'clock , mount
an electric car and mentally directed by Its
motorman run It to Courtland beach. Ar
riving there he will dive from an elevation
Into the water and get the needle. The test
Is bound to be successful as Johnstone has
bargained his reputation and future against
the successful culmination ot his quest.
