LINCOLN, Sept. Iff (Special.) The im
portsnce of the board of resents of the
state university following the lead of the
Peru Normal school superintendent In fur
nishing text books at cost to the students,
or renting tliem at a nominal charge. Is
shown In a rumor current in Lincoln that
the university book store nnd the co-operative
store had decided to consolidate. In
sofar as prices arc concerned, though still
continue under separate managements.
With the two stores running In competi
tion last year, thousands of dollars could
have, been saved to the students had the
board of regents followed the law and fur
nished the books at wholesale prices. As
an excuse fur . not following the law the
board claimed that no appropriation had
been made by the legislature for buying ths
books. Legal men, however, aald that the
law gave the board the privilege of using
the temporary university fund as It saw fit
for the benefit of the university, and they
held that It would be perfectly legal for the
board to purchase' the books and resell
them to the students at exact cost.
That the plan la practical and would re
sult In the savins of much money to the
students was demonstrated by Superintend
ent Clark of the Peru Normal, who, out of
his llhrury fund, without any special appro
priation from tho legislature, saved his stu
dents last your more than 15,000 without
cost to the state.
So far the board of regents has done
nothing In the matter, and a number of
prospective students have begun to wonder
If they will do anything. For years tho
book dealers of Lincoln have made enor
'mous profits out of the books sold to the
students, and there has been nothing done
to prevent this. Many, of the students are
compelled to work; their way through
V school, and every dollar counts. As an ex
ample of the profit mado this instance Is
recited: A student was asked by the book
dealers here 6 for a certain book to be
used in the engineering department. He re
fused to buy the books and Induced several
other students to allow him to send off and
get their books. This was done, and each
student got his book at a cost of $1.60 less
than was asked by the dealer, and the en
ergetio young- man made $60 on the deal
besides. ' '
Should the rumors of the consolidation of
the two book stores be true, the price for
text books this year will likely be mate
rially advanced over the large prices asked
Ready for Fusion Barbecue.
All Is in readiness for the peace pow
wow to be held by the various tribes of
the fusion aggregation at Epworth park
tomorrow. Tho ox has been put on the spit
and under ithe supervision of General Kel
sey of Coxy army fame the anliaol is be
ing roasted to a turn. By tomorrow after
noon it Is expected to be done to a finish.
It will be ottered as a sacrifice to the hun
gry pie hunleres In tho hope that they
will once more Join together and try to
do something for their leaders.
The meeting is to be Mr. Berge's debut
Into the political' arena of 'the state and
Senator Allen, C. J. Smyth, Candidate
Worseley and those others who are to
talk: have been Invited merely as cup bear
ers or special attendants. The speech of
Mr. Berg will be the speech of .the day.
For many days he' has been making care
ful preparation for this event and .when
he finishes it is expected that the ox will
not have been more thoroughly roasted
than will the 'present republican adminis
tration, past republican administrations and
the coming republican administration.
Should the present weather continue a
large crowd Is expected. T. S. Allen went
to Omaha' today to see If some of the
political brethren of that city could not
be Induced to take a vacation and come
down. He will also Impress it upon C. J.
Smyth that he is expected to talk.
Secretary Edmlsten of the populist com
mittee is in Chicago and so is not here
today to superintend the roasting of the
ox. It Is not known for sure whether he
will be here tomorrow.

at last, snd cars sre now running on their
old time and have permission to Increase
their speed at any time they so desire.
They also have permission to run within
less than 100 feet of each other or closer
If they so desire. This was the result of
a number of cltlsens getting Into the game.
These citizens bore down on the members
of the excise board and the members of
this body straightway bore down on the
police to make them let up. Consequently
the chief of police Issued an order to his
men not to molest the street car employ.es,
no matter how fast they run or how close
The contention between the police and
the traction company began when the man
ager of the company Issued an order that
no policeman could ride free unless he was
In full uniform. The police retaliated by
digging up an old ordinance which pro
vided that no cars should run within 100
feet of each other and that no car should
run more than seven miles an hour. About
a dozen arrests were made and three con
victions were secured by the police. To get
the people Interested the traction company
manager Issued an order for the employes
of the company to obey the ordinance to
tjio letter. The employes did and for two
days the cars have been making about
three miles sn hour. The effect was what
the traction company had expected. Peo
ple rose up In their wrath and denounced
the whole affair as child's play and com
pelled a stop put to It The council at Us
next meeting will rereal the old ordinance
and unless some Irate cltlsen takes up the
matter and flies complaints, the cars will
Jump along the same aa they always have

Greeks Indrr Arrest.
GRAND ISLAND, Sept. 18. (Special.)
Nick Taros and Michael Burhos,' two
Greeks, recently employed on the Union
Pacific as extra section hands, are under
arrest and imprisoned in the Hall county
Jail on the charge of conspiring- to murder
a fellow-employe. Recently tho car In
which the men were housed was burned at
Alda, the first station west of this city,
and nearly all of the men lost -their money.
The employe, whose name has not been
learned, however, la said tg have f700, and
the two Greeks were overheard to be plot
ting to get It. The other men therefore
kept a close watch of the men and on night
before Inst were observed to arise aftor
midnight. The two fellow-employes posted
to guard for that night were awake about
the same time, and, getting up, feigned in
ability to sleep. Finally the Greeks re
tired and the men followed suit. Several
hours later they again arose, but the
guards had been vigilant and again showed
signs that they 'were awake. The Greeks
became sullen, and all the next day showed
their displeasure. It was finally thought
best to notify the authorities, place what
evidence was at hand in their possession,
and the arrest followed. The time for the
preliminary hearing has not yet been set.
What has been learned bo far has been
learned through an Interpreter. The ac
cused men are unable to speak any other
than their own language.

the bees hummed merrier. The workmen

Protests Aanlnst Fast Running-.
GRAND ISLAND, Neb., Sept. 16. (Spe
cial.) It is reported in railroad circles
that Engineer Wood White of North
Platte has Jurt been quite severely cen
sured and given an "cut-lt-out" order for
making too good time on the Union Pa
cific. The story goes that the dispatcher's
train sheet, which ought to be tha best!
evidence, showed the train pulled by White
recently from Gothenburg to Cozad to have
reached the latter point in six minutes, and
as the distance is ten and two-tenth miles,
showing a speed of about 100 miles per
hour, it called forth vigorous protests. It
is learned that the trip from North Platte
to this city, on this occasion, 138 miles,
was made in 126 minutes, including the
stops. White had the fast mall train at
the time, which was several hours late.
The roadbed between the two points Is
very level and, partfeularly since ballasted
with the Sherman gravel and the same
has become well settled, admits of great
speed, but It Is believed while the officials
like to see a belated train make connec
tions at Omaha, they regard White's stunt
as over the limit.
