Lincoln Xolex. ,
LINCOLN , Jan. 14. ( Special. ) Brlefa h ve
been filed by the Society of the Home for
the Friendless In both the cases which arc
now before the supreme court , and which
grew out of the passage of the act by the
last legislature taking the homo out of the
control ot the society.
In the mandamus case brought In the dis
trict court by Attorney General Smyth for
Mrs. C. S. Jones , the newly appointed super
intendent , to gain possession ot the home ,
the society was successful , the court holding
that the act was unconstitutional , and thai
the state was bound by an Implied contract
to allow the society to rcn-.aln. In control of
the Institution. The brief filed today takes
tip the ground. ? advanced In the decision of
the lower court , holding that a mandamus
could not Ho ID the case. It states as a settled
principle of law that "mandamus will not
llo to test the tltlo to an ofllco or the right
to property , franchises , privileges , Immuni
ties or any other vestbdi rights , " and therefore -
fore the attorney general has tried the
wrong remedy. Much ofi the brief Is devoted
to the argument and citations on thlo point.
The attorney for the society also holds that
the statute of 1897 Is unconstitutional and
void , because of Irregularities In Its tltlo ,
and "because It violates the constitutional
Inhibition against the Impairing obligations
of contracts and against the violation of
vested rights and divesting them without
duo process ot law. "
CONTROL OF THE HOME.
The other brief Illcd Is In the TOGO wfocreln
the society brings mandamus proceedings to
compel the stale auditor to pay over the
money appropriated by the- legislature for
the surirort of the home. The statement In
the brief hliows that the society duly pi-e-
Bcntcd to the beord the estimates for sup
plies , according to custom , and that upon the
refusal of the state board to act the society
went on with Its own funds and furnished
tin1 supplies. The brief says that the amounts
wcro just and correct , and that the state
by Us refusal to purchase the supplies made
It necessary for the eocltty to so act "or
suffer the Institution and Its Inmates to
perish , " and "that at Ibis time It would
Bcem to bo a vain thing for the board to go
through the formula of acvcrtlsInE and pur
chasing and allowing bills therefor when the
Hiiro'lcs ' have already been purchased ant
consumed by the Inmates. "
The brief further eays : "If the act of
1S97 , taking away from relater the Institu
tion and all privileges and appurtenances ,
anil practically abolishing the relater ( the
Bocloty ) be held unconstitutional , wo take
It for granted that our friends , tbo enemy ,
will unconditionally surrender In both
The position of the board is stated by this
brief to bo "that the Homo for the Friend
less Is a state Institution , supplied by the
state , and that when they brought an ac
tion to oust the originators and operators ,
and the court beat them , the state balked
and liai sulked ever since. " The question
Is asked : "Do 'they propose to make the
appropriation statute sulk , too , until the
means of the relater are exhausted and the
Institution Is starved Into rollnqulshment
of rights In good faith claimed , and Into
nbject subjection after the manner of
Spain's policy with the Cubans ? "
The argument closes with 'this statement :
"There Is no state sovereignty Involved In
washing , feeding , warming and bedding the
Ibablea , llttlo children and old women at the
Homo for the Friendless. "

AUUUIIN , Neb. , Jan. 11. ( Special. ) The
Farmers' Institute of Ncmaha county closed
a thrco days' session hero yesterday. The
meeting was full of Interest and the attend
ance good. On Tuesday evening , Prof.
J. A. Dealtlo of the Peru Normal school gave
a very Interesting address'on "Tho Need of
Education. " On AVedncsday morning G. N.
Titus read a valuable paper on "Of AVhat
Should a Fruit Garden Consist ? " The pa
per by J. iM. Hoot , "Can Potatoes De liaised
with Profit In Ncma'.ia County ? " brought
out a pretty general discussion. "Need AVe
Fear a Fuel Famine In Southeast 'Nebraska ? "
was the subject ot a paper by N. 1' . Mcadcr ,
and he Boomed to think tliat people had noth
ing 'to ftar from that source , but from the
direction of the general discussion which
followed , It was plain to bo seen that the
majority wcro not with him. Probably the
paper of the greatest Interest , from a prac
tical point of view , was the one presented by
G. S. Christy on "Is the Hog Malady of Ne
braska Contagious , Infectious or Heredi
tary ? " In the discussion which followed , J.
II. Dund'is. editor ot the Granger , advanced
the Idea that In most cases the trouble would
be found to bo worms ; that he had examined
quite a number of hogs and that worms
were found In the Intestines , lungs , liver and
kidneys and urged upon farmers the Impor
tance of making post mortem examinations
and offered the columns of the Granger for
the results of such examinations. The ofll-
cers elected for the ensuing year are : Shell
Cochran , president ; A. C. Lceper , vice presi
dent ; A. AAr. Sultzbaugh , secretary ; AV. A.

1'ulillciitloii iSalil to lie Inspired by
LONDON , Jan. 14. The Homo corce-
Kpondent of the Dally Chronicle , In a btart-
Ing statement this morning , quotes largely
Ircm an artlclo In "Clvllta Catellca , " which
10 declares Is directly Inspired by the Vatican
and the pope , advocating , as to the solution
of the external question between the Vatican
and the Qutrlnal , the establishment of aa
Italian republic. The article , which Is based
on the pcoo's Christmas allocution , declares
lliat the thing which stands opposed to papal
Independence Is not Italian unity , but "tho
special and concrete form wherein that unity
Is at present maintained , with results much
: nero disastrous to the state than to the
lioly see. "
It proceeds to assert that the co-existence
Df the Vatican and the Italian monarchy Is
Impossible , and that one or the other must
? o. It then suggests the constitutions of
Switzerland and America as exairplcs of
'Admirable and glorious constitutions , true
ualon ot nation and otatc , though differing
ic-om that of Italy , which has produced noth-
ng but weakness , misery and starvation. "
The article concludes ; "Without the aid
of 'foreign bayonets the true Italy will find
for Itself Us own way and will rise again , let
js hope , from the Ignominy In which It now
; Ies prostrate to greatness. "
TCto Dally Cronlclo's correspondent asserts
that this "Is an Intentional revelation to the
outer world of the policy actuating not only
'he ' mind of Cardinal Itampolla , papal secre
tary ot state , but that of the Vatican. " Ho
adda : "Probably there would be no truth In
he supposition that either Cardinal Rampolla
or the pope has any Idea of oven a temporary
alliance with the republican -party ; 'but ' yet
.hey believe that whllo peace with fho king
a Impossible , It might bo possible with a
epubllc. The reason for the appearance of
his astounding pronouncement at the present
nomcnt Is the belief that not only the mlnls-
ry but tbo dynasty Itself Is menaced more
seriously than usual. "

ITHACA , N. V. , J.in. 14. The refusal of
Yaleto grant Cornell's request , contained In
the latter'a acceptance of Yale's chnlteiiRo ,
has been the chief topic of conversation at
Ithaca today. The students In general arc
Indifferent , but some cf Idem , while saying
little , tave given signs of Indignation , which
practically represents the feeling nt Cornell
on the boat raeUxj question , as far as a meet
ing with Yale Is concerned.
In an Interview tonight Prof. E. AV. . Huff-
cutt , president of the athletic council , gave
the following statement :
"Corrwll regrets that Yale flnds It
slblo to ussent to terms which appear to us
to bo In every respect fair an ! sportsmanlike.
The terms proposed arc an exact equivalent of
the terms of the challenge. Moreover , they
arc precisely the terms which Yale proposed
to Harvard last year and to which Harvard
assentcJ. It ecems , therefore , Ui-it Yale's
disinclination to accept them must bo due to
reagent qulto distinct from any objections to
their fairness and having to do with Its gen
eral Intercollegiate policy. If this Is so the
case resolvea Itself Into a dlftcraco between
Cornell and Yale and the Intercollegiate reg
ulations In general.
"Upon such a question men may disagree
without engendering cny unfriendly feeling.
In this spirit Cornell accep's Uio decision of
Yale and trusts that the good understanding
that began last year may eontlivjc , even
though different policies at "Old" " two univer
sities render future Intercollegiate contests
between the two Impossible. "
Captain Frederick Colson of the 'Varsity
crew , made the following statement :
"Cornell considers that Its answer to
Yalo's proposition for a boat race was oer-
fectly fair from every point of view. I can
only cxpi'CES my surprise at the refusal of
Yale to nccord to Cornell next year what
It claimed of Cornell this year. Cornell
cerumen regret that Yale has made It Itn-
Oosslblo for another lest to bo made be
tween the two different styles of rowing
Inseparably connected , with the names of
Courtney and Cook. As Cornell has ac
cepted Harvard's challenge for a boat face
at such tlmo and place as may bo agreeable
to the two crews , It only remains to decide
upon such tlmo nrd place. All through the
negotiations with Harvard and Yale it has
been taken for granted that Cornell would
row Pennsylvania and Columbia this year.
Only matters of detail have to be deter
mined upon. Personally , I would llko to
see a quadrtngular cace arranged for Colum
bia , Harvard , Pennsylvania and Cornell. "
Prof. Huffcutt denied the report that a
challenge foad been received/ / from Wisconsin
by Cornell ,

FARGO , N. D. , Jan. 14. There has been
a novel cour&lng meet near Fargo. The
dog fanciers' who have greyhounds on ex
hibition at the kennel show took their dogs
out llvo miles south of the city for a jack
rabbit chase. No jack rabbits could be
found , but the crowd was lucky enough to
strike a fox and enjoyed a splendid chase.
About 500 people had gone out from Fargo
to see the sport. A number were on bicy
cles , enjoying- the chase to thu limit. It
Is probably the first fox hunting party that
over went to the chase on bicycles , nnd the
matter Is all the more notworthy when It Is
considered that It was In what Is termed
the Arctic North Dakota , but In the middle
of January and without a particle of snow
on the ground , bicycling being as good as
