THE OMAHA DAILY BEE? THURSDAY, JUNE 12, 1002. END OF: UNIVERSITY YEAR .TMrtj-Flrrt Commencement Day to Be v Obaemd Today. CONDITION OF INSTITUTION AND ITS NEEDS Chancellor Andrews' Address to the Alumni taattlM III Views sad Recommendations (or Fatore Betterment. (From, Staff Correspondent.) LINCOLN, Jane 11. (Special.) Tomor row will mark the end of the thirty-first 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 university. ' 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 severely punished. 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, ABSOLUTE SECURITY. Genuine Carter's Little Liver PiUs. , Must Baar Signature Vat Fa faille Wrapper Bear. mmU aaal a aaag totahftMaajas, OArxl trio roi DiziiMUS. rnrtE nn luouiiiti. iflvFR m TOiro livu. 1 1 pi i ri roi eonsTiPATioa. 1 res uaow iu. Inn TKtcoMPLixiei fit I aw Vina nmw pmwa CUR ICK blAOACjrtl 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 growth. 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 through. 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.

RELATOR MUST SHOW CLEAR RIGHT tdnestlon Broanht Vp in Connection vrlth Case from Lancaster toanty and Derided Against the Applicant. (From a Staff Correspondent.) 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 court. 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 lowed notwithstanding. In a case entitled Wellage against Ab bott, appealed from the district court of Douglas county, the supreme court de clares that discontinuance of a pending; cause and agreement not to prosecute any further claim are sufficient ronsideratlon for a promise to pay accrued costs and at torneys' fees It held that In such case the agreement to pay attorneys' fees Is an original and Independent contract and Is not within the statute of frauds as being a promise to answer for the debt of another. 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 depot. "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.

ENGLISH GOVERNMENT STILL RESENTFUL Colonel Lynch Fights wltb the Bnrghera, bnt He la Not to Be Allowed to Sarrender with Them. LONDON, June 11. Colonel Arthur Lynch, who fought with the Boers In South Africa, and who, In November last, was elected to represent Oalway In the Hous of Commons, was arrested this morning on his arrival at New Haven from Dieppe, France. Colonel Lynch, who was accom panied by his wife, waa brought to Londou and was afterward taken to Bow street police station. Subsequently Colonel Lynch was ar raigned at the Bow street police court on the charge of high treason and waa re manded until Saturday, June 14, after for mal evidence of his arrest had been pre sented. Tho prisoner, who wss described on the charge sheet as a "Journalist," sat In the dock, apparently unconcerned, until the magistrate asked him If he bad anything to say In reply to the charge. Then he arose and replied almost Inaudlbly, "No sir." He did not apply for ball and wa taken to the cells. The Irish nationalists in the House of Commons today questioned the ministers on the subject of the arrest of Colonel Lynch. They wanted to know why the colonel had not the same right to surren der as other burghers. The government leader replied tersely. "He I not a burgher." John Redmond, the Irish leader, and J. O. Swift MacNell, nationalist, then turned to the secretary of state for home affairs, Mr. Ritchie, and asked him why he had not fulfilled his ministerial duty In Inform ing the house of Colonel Lynch's arrest on the charge of high treason. Mr. Ritchie denied that It was his duty to so Inform the house, but when the Irish members appealed to the speaker the lat ter upheld the nationalist contention that the usual practice was to Inform the House of Commons of such an Incident through tbe speaker. Further questions were ruled out of order and tbe subject was dropped. Lieutenant Colonel John Phillip Nolan (nationalist) applied thla afternoon for the release of Colonel Lynch on ball, but the magistrate said he had no power to grant the request.

T" Catarrh of the Many Women Have Catarrh of the Stomach and Do Not Know It. nmnanna Pa ru-na Cures Catarrh Wherever Located. For the moat acute cases of dyspepsia and tbe most chronic and stubborn cases of catarrh of the stomach reruns Is an un falling cure. Mr. E. E. Gaston, of Milton, Iowa, in a 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 country, but they did her no good. She fell off In flesh from 134 pounds to 80 pounds, snd was unable to do anything; In 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 bad examined her and said she had cancer 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.; This coming from one whom I have always had great confidence In, you cannot lmag: Ine my feelings and thoughts. "It was then we decided to quit doctoring; and try Peruna. and from the beginning it helped her. Che Is now able to do all tho housework. Ehe la gaining In flesh and l! think will soon be back to her former weight. "To make a long story short, we owe her life to Peruna, for I am satisfied had we not tried It she would now be In the grave.' If you do not derive prompt and satis factory results from the use of Peruna. write at once to Dr. Hartman, giving a full statement of your case and be will b glad to give you bis valuable advice gratia.
