(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Nov. 18. (Special. It devel

the assurance that the taxes would be paid.

Will Come to Lincoln.
Secretary A. B. Allen of the state central
committee said today that the headquar
ters would be removed to Lincoln shortly,
by virtue of the authority conferred on
the committee officials at the mueting last
Wednesday. The reason for removing the
headquarters from Omaha Is thut both the
chairman and secretary reside in Lincoln
and occupy official positions here. No ef
fort has been made as yet to secure propo
sitions from hotels.
May Cut Levy for 1'nl verslty. -There
Is some talk among state officials
to the effect that the 1-mlli levy for the
I'nlverslty of Nebraska will be cut, be
cause of the Increased valuation of the
state. Some of the friends of the uni
versity are fearful that xne general cry
for economy will lead to such action.
It Is argued that the 1-rnlll levy was
enough six years ago when the total valu
ation of the state wua fUS.OOO.OOO, and for
that reason It Is said that the same levy
on a (294,000,000 valuation Is excessive. Two
years ago the farmer members of the legls.
lature made an effort to reduce the levy,
but were finally prevailed upon to allow
It to stand because of the uncertainty as
to the result under the new statute.
Ilurkrtt Spent S4ft.
Today Congressman E. J. Uurkett filed
his expense statement In the office of the
secretary of state, showing that he gave
$43 to T. C. Hunger, chairman of the con
gressional committee for the First district.
Nothing has been filed yet to show what
It coat to make the tour of the state In
the Interest of his senatorial candidacy.
Because of the fact that the statute does
not contain any provision requiring state,
ments In the latter case, it is believed that
none will be filed.
Iteturns About All In.
Returns (torn all but six of the counties
have beta received at the office of the sec
retary o siate, and these give President
Roosvelt 116.82 and Judge Parker 41.133.
President Kooaevelt carried every one of
these counties and it is supposed that he
has carried every county In the rtata. His
plurality at this time Is 74.S92, and will
doubtless run to K5,no.

Convicted of Robbery Case.
James Malone, special Burlington detec
tive, returned to Lincoln last night from
Beaver City, after securing the conviction
of J. W. Harris and Charles Mack on the
charge of robbing freight cars of various
roads throughout this state and Colorado.
The men pleaded guilty to breaking Into two
cars at Oxford and Cambridge, about Oc
tober 15, and on this oount they were
given .Ave years each In the penitentiary.
Karl O. Bush, a boy arrested along with
the men, was allowed to go over until the
next term of court.
The three men were arrested at Akron,
Colo., October 17. At that place they were
charged with bringing stolen goods Into the
town, but later they were taken to Denver
for safekeeping, and the charge against
them was changed as U was found that
they were wanted in -Nebraska. Malone
hunted up the evidence In the case and se
cured enough to convince the men that it
would be policy to plead guilty and throw
themselves on the mercy of the court.
Goods valued at over 11.500 were found In
a Pueblo (Colo.) pawnshop, which these
three men had sold, and it is estimated
that their operations for the last seven
months have netted them a goodly sum and
cost the companies from which they took
the merchandise somewhere near 15,000.
rart of the goods taken from the Burling
ton cars were secured at Plattsmouth and
distributed around Omaha, Council Bluffs
and Pacific Junction, la. The men made a
detailed confession of their many crimes at
tie time of their sentence.
Ex-Chancellor Falrlleld Dead.

Mr. Falrneld was a Virginian born, the

Ington's stuff In the revolutionary war, and
a cousin of "Stonewall" Jackson, the fa

on August T. ma, at Parkcrsburg, now In
West Virginia. His father was a slave
holder, but moved In the latter part of the
"M to Ohio, where he privately freed all
his blacks. The elder Fairfield ran a
printing office in Mlama county, Ohio, and
here the youth learned the art of type

thence to Oberlln college, where he grad
uated in 1S42.
In 1876 he was an applicant for the va
cant chancellorship of the Nebraska uni
versity. He was recommended by Senators
Zach Chandler and T. W. Perry of Michi
gan and many others prominent In public
and educational life. He served six years
as the head of tho Nebraska Institution,
leaving it in 18S2. Ho resided in Lincoln
for a year after that, and then went to
Manistee, Mich., to take charge of a church.
From there he went to Lyons, France, as
consul for the United States, an appointee
of President Harrison. He was there four
years, and Blnce his return to America has
lived in seml-retlrement at Oberlln, al
though he has not been idle.
Mr. Fairfield was a man of great Intel
lectual attainments, a powerful speaker
and of strong religious convictions. His
retirement from the State university came
about as the result of friction between him
self and Profs. Church, Emerson and
Woodbury of the faculty. At that time
Lincoln was the center of a colony of lib
eral thinkers, and during the latter part
of Chuncellor Fairfield's Btay a vigorous
combat wus waged between those In the
university who believed In conducting It
along lines somewhat sectarian and those
outside, abetted by the three professors,
who wanted the university 'liberalixed."
As a result the three professors were let
out In January, 12, and In June the con
nection of Chancellor Fuirfleld, who led the
opposition, was severed. After that Mr. C.
H. Gere came to the Board of Regents nntl
under tils leadership the university was
reorganized upon the broad lines of today.
Mr. Fairfield was an ardent republican.
He was present at Detroit when the party
was founded, and for years he was promi
nent in the party councils. He served as
a state senator of Michigan and also as
lieutenant governor, but his college duties
forbade any great activity In the political
arena. He retained his Interest in party
affairs to the lust. Scarcely three weeks
ago he wrote to bis son In Lincoln express
ing the hope that he might live to vote
once for Roosevelt for president, us a re
buke to the slanderous attack Uon him of
Judge Parker. His death wus very sudden,
no Illness of any serious character preced
ing. His son received a letter from him
dated the l.'Jth which shows an unabated
Interest in Nebraska and in public affairs.
He leaves a widow and seven children.

Fries for short Session.
S nutur Fries of Arcadia was here last
niKht and yesterday looking up his candi
dacy for president of the senate. Senator
Fries was a member of the last session
and he expects to secure much support
from those who knew him In that session.
He predicted a short, business-like session,
the only business of Importance before the
legislature being the election of a United
States senator, the appropriation bills and
probably on amendment or two to the rev
enue law. Senator Fries believes that the
session will be a short one. Out In his dis
trict he said the people desires the revenue
law amended so that deputy assessors
should be elected Instead of appointed by
the county assessor.

8T. PAUL. Neb., Nov. 18 (Spedal.)-A
disastrous Are, resulting In the loss of
one human life and considerable property,
occurred lust night at Dannebrog, right
miles southwest of here. Shortly before
midnight fire broke out in the hardware
store of M. Madsen and, although herolo
efforts were mode to save tho building, the
fire was so far advanced when discovered
that only the warehouse In the rear was
saved, but the lumber yard closely adjoin
ing on the cast, was entirely saved by hard
work of the fire department. Niels Chiis
tensen, who slept In the store, perished In
the Are. He was a young man, who had
arrived from Denmark last spring. The
origin of the fire Is at present unknown.
The loss falls severely on Mr. Madsen.
The Insurance carried on the building and
stock was less than half of the value
and the total loss Is upward of $4,000.'
