school year or the L'niverslty of Nebraska.
Tba graduates will be given their diplomas,
and then, with the exception of a few re
ceptions In the evening, the seniors will be
free from all duties In connection with the
The demand for tickets to the commence
ment exercises tomorrow has been greater
than usual, probably because Booker T.
Washington Is to deliver the oration. The
.exercises will be held In the Auditorium
and the Indications are that It will be
tilled to Its utmost.
The alumni of the university bad charge
of all events Incident to commencement to
day. In the morning J. Irving Manatt, ex
chancellor of the university, delivered the
annual Phi Beta Kappa oration. After this
cam the annual class dinners and reunions.
Tonight Judge E. P. Holmes delivered the
alumni address, his subject being, "The
Tendency of Woman's Social Development."
Report ot the Chancellor.
. Chancellor Andrews rend to the alumni
bis report on the condition and needs of
the university, as follows:
The university has added nothing to its
lands this year. The need for larger
quurtcrs here In the city will soon be
pressing, though It is not so at this mo
ment. A more Immediate call for land Is
heard from the farm, where, large as the
present rstate is, ampUT art as are re
quired that agricultural teaching and ex
perimentation may go on strongly.
No buildings, have been erected the last
year except , the new stock barn, at the
farm. There Is imperative necessity for
two additional bullnlnps nt the farm. It
Is nothing short of cruelty to require the
Department of Physics to toll longer with
out any place wholly Its own either for
lecturing, for experimentation or for the
proper storing of apparatus. The value
of our phydlcal apparatus, reasonably
abundant and mQch of it very coFtly. Is
diminished severul per cent each year ly
Imperfect storage and the necessity for
transporting pieces from place to place for
use In teaching. No one of the engineering
departments has sufficient premises. Tho
ihops are too small. The Important De
partment of Domestic Art and Science !
forbidden to enlarge for lack of space.
The buildings have been kept In the best
repair possible with the limited resources
at the disposal of the university, but re-
Calrs are badly needed which it is ImposM
le to effect at, present for lack of funds.
Such economy Is viciously costly. The
friends of the etate ought -to insist that
wasteful management of this sort be
henceforth rendered unnecessary. There
ught to be money to make efficient reptl.a
Immediately In every case where the need
Df repairs arises. That Is what private
gwnera of first-class business plants al
ways do. 8ound economy on behalf of th
ita'te would-supply the regents with funds
lu effect repnlra upon this precious prop
srtv as promptly and as completely as he
Burlington road does upon its engines and
" 8pite of poverty something has been ae
compllsehd In Improving the appearance
f the university premlseB, The Athletic
association has conferred a benediction by
putting up a new grandstand and a new
fence about the athletic field. In securing
neatness on. the campus faculty and etu
Jents have co-operated admirably.
The teaching force of the university has
the Inst year suffered few changes. One
eminent dean and a Valued profeswr -l"ft
us a year ago. I refer to Kdgran and
Broolm, who accepted eligible positions
elsewhere at salaries which we could not
match. Several other "profssors have re
ceived calls, la leave us at higher salaries,
'but have declined. Tha-. work done by the
teaching force has been hard, faithful and
efficient. Itr members' have wrought in
perfect harmony and eo-operatlon one of
the most delightful features connected with
the service of the "university.
Student Body Commended.
The student body has been characterized,
by almost universal seal in work. Uni
versity spirit has Improved. Few students
have Deen 111 ana. so rar as i Know, dui
one has died. Athletic and debating suc
cesses are known to all. The conduct of
our students Is about all that could be
desired. There have been a few cases of
cheating In written work .which, of course,
.cording to a university code of morals, Is
almost ual.donable sin. If ths vice does
not abate gerater severity will have to
be exercised In dealing with It. It may
even be necessary to treat It as absolutely
unpardonable. When taxed with this fault
students nearly always say It is common
and not frowned on very seriously In the
high schools where they prepared. This Is
unfortunate If true. Perhaps the question
of its truth is worth investigating.
Annoying thefts occur at intervals In
various departments of the university.
Borne of the thieves are no doubt outsiders,
but not all. Thief-students do not, I be
lieve, learn their vice here, but we ought
to be able to make them unlearn It here.
Clear cases of such delinquency should be
Spite of all thts the moral tone of our
student body Is higher than that at any
Dther Institution with which I have been
connected. Of course, being a state uni
versity, supported by general taxation, we
cannot teach - dogma or side with any
ecclesiastical organization against any
other. When pe-eple, however, allege that
the university does nothing to advance the
interests of religion I always protest. All
preachers, all evangelists, all churchmen,
such, even, as go furthest In emphasising
rites, forms and ecclesiastlclsm, boastfully
maintain that the very best means which
can be used to propagate religion Is the
Influence of noble and upright character.
It would perhaps be Invidious to compare
the Influence of the faculty and students
of our university in this regard with the
corresponding Influence exerted at other
schools, but. could such a comparison be
made and made fairly.' the result would, I
am sure, convince all that there Is In
exercise at this 'university a most powerful,
an almost incomparable force for the
creation and dissemination of the best re
sults prayed for by all Christian people.
Why the Fnlllnc Off.
The number, of students connected with
the university has probably been somewhat
less the last year than for a few years
preceding. This falling off Is referable in
.the main to four causes: First, thu growth
of private colleges In the state. Second,
Little Liver PiUs.

the fee which the university has had to
Impose on all students owing to the too
small amount received the last time from
the state. Third, the tuition which, partly
for the same reason. It was thought well
to require from non-resident students.
Fouth, the main cause, I believe, the
advance In the cost of living this yesr
over that of previous years. I suppose that
the most .economical student in the uni
versity has been obliged to lay out for
living expenses at the very least from
$25 to tbo more the last year than was
necessary the year preceding.
These rauses It will be observed are
likely to continue. It will be necessary
therefore. If the university shall In num
bers as well as In the quality of lis work
keep up the psce It has set, for Its friends
by their exertions to counteract and over
come these adverse causes named, to set
In exercise, that Is, other forces stronger
than these which threaten to check our
It is probably known to all present that
recently the regents have, partly through
affiliation with the Omaha Medical college,
established In the university a college of
medicine. The first two of the four years
of Instruction will be given In Lincoln and
the last two taken up with more technical
study, clinical work, and so on. In Omaha.
This Is considered a very Important new
step. It cannot fall of telling results, chief
among which will be elevation In the qual
ity of medical and surgical knowledge and
practice throughout the Missouri valley.
The college of medicine will pay all its
own expenses, like the law college at pres
ent, not being In any sense a burden upon
the university chest
It may be possible In the course of a few
years to erect a college of engineering on
a similar basis, affixing certain fees to
the excellent Instruction given in that de
partment, so that the university treasury
may be richer by the sums now necessary
to keep up sjch teaching. This, It seems
to me, would be only just. Inasmuch aa no
students are surer than those schooled In
engineering of lucrative employment on
leaving the university.-
To the work now doing In domestic
science there should be added as soon as
possible corresponding work In domestic
art. Ample courses in commercial eco
nomics, geography and methods should be
Instituted. A year or two of hard and
first-class work in architecture should be
offered and the courses which the Greek
department, straining Its resources. Is at
present offering In the history and criticism
of fine arts should be erected into an Inde
pendent professorship. The excellent course
in forestry already arranged should be pro
mulgated at once and strongly carried
Alumni Can Help.
I am saying these things to the alumni of
the university because the advancement
pointed out can never be achieved save
oy your help. You can aid In a variety
of ways. You can direct to your alma
mater many young people who desire a
higher education In some of Its forms.
More particularly those of you who are
teachers can inspire in the breasts of
youth a desire for higher education and
then turn their footsteps this way. All of
you can do something to inform the public
and especially members of the legislature,
touching the value of the work the uni
versity Is doing and its need of larger re
sources that it may compass a still vaster
work of good. Lastly, you can make It
clear that the funds the state bestows on
Its university are not of the nature of
charity, but Invested and Invested In the
best possible gilt-edged security, yielding
two sets of priceless dividends, one
estimable In terms of dollars and cents and
consisting' in an Increased valuatlon-of the
state's estate, real and personal, and one
too precious to be told In any language of
money, consisting In bettered civilization
and the higher life of mind. '
Not even the most enthusiastic alumnus
on the grounds duly prizes the university.
We need to exalt it more In our thought
and compel the public to do so. Plan for
It and lead others to plan for It, not in
a petty or niggardly way, bat copiously,
Immensely, stupendously, as the central
glory of our commonwealth. Our state la
no longer poor; It Is rich and rapidly be
coming opulent. There la less danger of
our having too little than of our letting
abundance minister to what is low, build
ing houses costly but of mud Instead of
mansions imperishable. I of course do not
maintain that the university Is the sole
source of good direction In strong and
noble social construction, but I do say that
It is a main and a matchless sojree, worthy
of the most devoted and liberal mainte
nance. Law School Graduates.

LINCOLN, June 11. (Special.) The su
preme court has delivered an opinion In
which It la held that, although delay In
applying for a writ of mandamus la not
an absolute bar. It may be sufficient. In
the discretion of tbe court, for denying
the writ. Tbe question was brought to
the attention of the court by Christopher
O. Relse, who was plaintiff In the district
court In an action of replevin. Judgment
having been entered for the defendant, and
a motion for a new trial having been de
nied. Relss served a proposed bill of ex
ceptions upon the defendant's counsel on
the last but one of the eighty days allowed
by tbe court for that purpose. The coun
sel objected to the allowance of the bill
and declined to accept service. Afterward,
and some time after the expiration of tho
period fixed by law, the bill was presented
to the trial judge, who refused to settle It,
asserting In his order that "It was not pre
sented with 100 days from the last day of
the term of court at which motion for new
trial was overruled." The proposed bill,
together with the order, was presented in
the supreme court and allowed to remain
for over a year, and until stricken from the
record, for want of allowance In the trial
The court holds that tbe relator In man
damus proceedings to compel settlement
of a bill of exceptions must show a clear
right to have his proposed bill allowed.
Hence, where the trial Judge, upon hear
ing evidence, has found that delay In not
presenting the bill in the time fixed by
the law was due to laches and neglect of
relator, the latter will be held to very
clear proof that such finding was erroneous
and that he Is entitled to have the bill al

Clancey In a Horry.
People at tbe statehouse are watching
with Interest the contest between the two
delegation tickets In the Fifth ward of
Omaha. One of these, advertised as being
"anti-machine," and In favor of the nom
ination of Van Dusen, Is headed by Robert
J. Clancey, private secretary to Governor
Savage. Mr. Clancey has planned fur a
vigorous campaign in this ward and ex
pects to get assistance from one or two
men who hold positions under the Jurisdic
tion of the governor.
This afternoon Mr. Clancey was seen run
ning at a high rate of speed toward the
Burlington depot, carrying a grip In one
hand and waving a palm leaf fan with the
other. The terrific heat had no terror for
Mr. Clancey, for he kept up bin mad race
clear to the platform of the train bound
for Omaha. A man who was slowly saun
tering along saw Mr. Clancey running, and
as the train wag late, both being bound
for the same destination, tbey met at the
"What occasions this Intense excite
ment?" the man asked of Mr. Clancey.
"Oh, Just a little business In Omaha,"
exclaimed the genial private secretary,
smiling broadly and gasping for breath.
"You see, there's some politics up there
a fight, you know, over in the Fifth ward.
I have to be there this afternoon."
And then Mr. Clancey Indulged in a few
uncomplimentary criticisms of the Lincoln
street car service, for tbe car be bad
boarded at the hotel ran only half way to
the depot and then stopped.
The city council, altttng as a Board of

recent letter to Dr. Hartman, says:
"My wife has been sick with stomach
trouble for almost three years.
"During that time we doctored with three
of the best doctors In this part of the

fact, wss confined to her bed a good part
of the time. Everything she ate she would
throw up, even water. The last doctor wa

of the stomach, and said he could do her,
no good except to give her something ta
relieve the pain, and that he would not
advise us to have an operation performed.;
