A source nf pride and satMacMon to the
t-eople and pluidld testimonial to the
public school system of the stale Is the
fart that for years Nebraska has had
within It borders the lowest pTCf-ntae of
Illiteracy of any state In the union. Today
the public schools of Nebraska are endowed
to the amount of more thin Konf'.i"0 and
re the leaders and their tun are copied
and commended throughout the land.
When the constitution was framed In
ITS It provided for the foundation of th- ,
permanent school fund. A permaneut
School fund was created to remain In- i
Violate, the Interest only to be used for
School purposes. This fund was created
by the sale or lease of sections 16 and 13
In each township In the state. The schools
war to be maintained by the Interest from
this fund, from the Interest on warrants,
county bonds and school district bonds,
certain fees and licenses and the state
school tax . of 1H mills or less upon the
dollar of all taxable property In the state.
Local districts may tax themselves not
to exceed 2S mills on the dollar assessed
valuation. All fines, penalties and li
cense moneys are appropriated exclusively
to the use and support of the districts in
which the money accrued. ' The constitu
tion provides also that free instruction
shall be given every person in the state
between the apes cf S and 21 years. Carry
Ins; out this provision, fre text books are
furnished In every district in the state.
Growth of Hlfth Schools.
School management is confined to the
several districts which elect their own di
rectors, who have control of the schools.
When a district has 150 children of school
aee it baa the authority to organise a high
school and give free to the children a
year's work in the high school In addition
to the eight grades provided for In the
common school. The high schools ore be
coming more numerous each year and ac
cording to the latest statistics compiled In
the office of State Superintendent McBrien
there axe eighty-five lllages which main
tain a high achool course of one year; 175
villages with a high school courBe of two
years; 101 villages with a three-year high
school course, and eighty-four villages,
towns and cities which maintain the four
year high school course.
At the head of the high school system
of course is the university, with its over
200 instructors and 2.BCKI students. The
state legislature has been liberal with
this institution and It was given by the
last legislature altogether with the 1-mill
levy on all state property nearly tl.uoo.OJO
for the blenmum.
Food Mcadtly Growing.
The permanent school fund is increasing
year by year and now it is valued at al
most I7.0U0,U00 in round numbers. This sum
cannot bo legally diminished, but it must
grow constantly in proportion to the invest
ments made by the Board of Educational
Lands and Funds. Some of it is invested in
bonds of other states, including those of
Massachusetts and Idaho, while some of it
la stiU ia the land which was originally
turned over to the fund by the government.
As this land becomes more valuable of
course the fund Increases.
Besides the money raised locally by tax
ation and fins to maintain the various
schools, there is distributed by the state
treasurer semi-annually the interest on this
Investment and the money derived from the
lease of school lands.
During the months of May and December
of the last year there was apportioned to
the various school districts a total of li&I,
ftsl.17. This money is used exclusively in
maintaining and supporting the common
and high schools and not a cent of It goes
to toe State university or the State Normal
schools, separate appropriations being made
for these institutions by the various legis
latures. The total Income of all the school dis
tricts of the state, according to the latest
figures compiled by State Superintendent
McBrien for the year 1904, was rS,3fl.3i3. Of
this sum $4,890,198 was spent Of the
amount expended IJTl.tli; was for the con
struction of school buildings, and this prac
tically represents the amount of school
district bonds issued during that year.
During the same time bonds to the amount
of tll,0Cl were cancelled. Throughout the
entire state at the time Mr. McBrien made
his compilation school districts were bonded
to the amount of $2,730,538, while the in
di btedness of the districts not bonded
amounted to $SM.7. The total value cf all
the achool district property In the state
amounted to $10,919,921.

At this time there are C6C7 school districts
In the state. When the figures are com

After all that science has accomplished, why should a
dentist inflict pain when the doctor and ths surgeon avoid It?
Years ago 1 made up my mind that much of the pain In
dental worK was unnecessary. I believed that If medical
science could relieve every other part of the body from
pain, dental science should be able to abolish It In the teeth.
I have demonstrated that this can be done. la my
office it Is dona. I could not say enough about my method
of painless dental operating without being suspected of ex

A Denver correspondent reports a great
uplift of religious fervor In that city and
throughout Colorado and adjacent states
due to up-to-date advertising methods and
soul-stirring yells. Not only are the
chuiches doirg more advertising than ever
before, but there is keen rivalry in the
wording of the advertisements.
This activity dstes from last spring, when
Rev. Billy Sunday, the ex-ball player evan
gelist, held meetings In the Colorado gold
camps. He caused ell the county seat

where he conducted revivals to be pla
carded, and families drove for miles and
traveled across the mountains to hear his

bearing the legend. "Get Right with God."
These were pasted on sidewalks, on lamp
posta, on the windows of street cars In
every place where they would attract at
tention. One religious campaigner slipped
into a fashionable hotel at Colorado
Springs one night and pasted a "sticker"
on the bands of all the hats he could find
while the owners were at dinner.
The spirit of rivalry has spread to he
Sunday schools, and school cries have been
adopted by the children. When parties of
pupils from different Sunday schools meet
they give voice to their cheers with all the
enthusiasm of students of rival colleges.
This cheer has been adopted by a society
of youthful temperance workers In one of
the Presbyterian churches.

Opponents of the president's "square

are not as complacently Indifferent to pub
lic sentiment as they have been In former
years. Political signs of the times are
disquieting, and the reasons therefor are
clearly pointed out by an observant corre
spondent of tbe Boston Transcript, a
veteran of the Washington corps. In part,
"No one can disguise the wave of 're
form' or of 'radicalism,' according to the
individual's point of view, which Is now
sweeping over the country. What does It
nil mean? Where is It going to stop J.
Frank Hanly, the alert young governor of
Indiana, who Is In line with this western
movement with the republican party. Is
oday in Washington for the purpose of
onferrlng with the congressmen from that
state In reference to a special session of
the legislnture, ostensibly to make It pos
;ble to remove a lalthless state official;
ut when the lawmakers getTo Indianapolis
.he governor will propose the passage of
i law fixing steam railroad passenger fares

,assed the Ohio lower house with only a
single dissenting voice and is scheduled to
go through the Ohio senate. To the thickly
peopled east, with its mileage books sold
on liberal terms, this does not seem a
radical Innovation; but It means a great
change in passenger fares in the west.
And tbe governor has other proposals of
the same sort to make to the legislature of
"But the most radical cry of all comes out
of Iowa where Governor Cummins' recog
nized lieutenant in the legislature. Senator
Lewis, has introduced resolutions, which
will probably pass, inviting other states to
send delegates to a convention to be held at
Des Moines next summer, for tbe purpose
of setting into motion the necessary ma
chinery for amending the constitution of
the United States, through a convention.
This method, provided by the constitution,
has never yet been utilised. Ail amend
ments thus far have been put into force by
securing the .two-thirds majority In both
houses of congress, followed by the ratifi
cation in the legislatures of three fourths
of the states. But the constitution also
provides. It will be recalled, that on appli
cation of the legislatures of two-thirds of
the states, congress shall call a convention
for proposing amendments. These shall
go Into force when ratified by the legis
latures of three fourths of the states.
. Maadatory Call.
"This system, it will be observed, 'cuts
the senate out' In the process of amend
ment A majority vote In thirty legisla
tures would call the convention. Congress
would have no alternative in the matter
but to Issue tbe call. The amendment
would then need the support of the ma
jority vote in thirty-four legislatures. Only
one amendment is now proposed. Tbe Des
Moines convenUon will be called for a
single purpose, and that Is to change the
constitutional method of electing United
States senators. Six or eight years ago
Senator Chandler like most New England
ers a vigorous opponent of the popular elec
tion of senators discovered that twenty
two states had through their legislatures
expressed their desire for this change.
Somewhat alarmed, he called In his news
paper friends, asking them to bring to pub
lic attention the proportions which this
movement was taking snd the liability that,
through the convention method of amend
ment, the trick would be turned' much
quicker than people had been led to sup
pose. "The subject gains new Importance now
from the relation of the proposed change
to the railroad controversy. To the extent
that the senate plays a conservative part,
it will lend support to the view that It Is
out of touch with the public demand, and
responsive chiefly to the great moneyed
interests which are supposedly potent In
the average western legislature. The two
Issues dovetail into each other like slavery
and secession. The advocates of railroad
rate regulatlos, of anti-trust legislation,
and In general of that class of measures
which the senate habitually prefers to stifle,
are always 'out after the senate.' They
think that body takes the view It does on
public questions because It Is constituted
as it is, and they want to amend the con
stitution so that It will he a differently
constituted body. The senate thus has a

tional amendment pmjetct ss necessarily
oi t cf the reach of success. All It requires,
aside from good management of prelimi
naries, is a majority vote eventually in tbe
legislatures of thirty-four states. The ques
tion would be sent to the legislatures, which
would have to say "yes" or "no"; this
makes acceptance an easier process than
though tbe burden cf initiation and secur
ing attention fell upon the proponents of
the change- Where will the thirty-four
legislatures to vote affirmatively on this
question come from? The entire south be
lieves In the direct election of senators, and
Is practising that system today. The demo
cratic party favors It; there would not be a
score of democratic votes against It In all
the legislatures of the country. If past ex
perience counts. The house of representa
tives has repeatedly approved the project
by overwhelming majorities. A republican
house not many years ago showed only
twelve votes against it.
"In addition to ths democrats there would
be all the radical republicans of th LaFol-
lette-Cummlns stripe throughout the coun
try. This would Include the republicans
who were dissatisfied with what the senate
hud done In reference to President Roose
velt's legislative program. The greater thetr
disappointment the greater would be the
strength of this Issue. It is possible that
the conservative Interests of the country,
realizing what they owe to the conser
vatism of a senate chosen by state legisla
tures, would rally In such an emergency
and make an effective educational cam
paign to defeat the amendment. This could
doubtless be done in more than eleven
legislatures. If the conservative foroes are
willing to work hard enough, and would
subscribe liberally to ths cause. But if
the subject came up for decision In the
present state of the pjblic mind, there
would be a large chance of the adoption of

BUILDS A BONDLESS RAILROAD
Senator Clark's Achievement a Strik
ing Ceatrast te Prevailing
St. Louis capitalists have assisted United
Slates Senator W. A. Clark of Montana to
accomplish the seemingly impossible In
railroad finance. Senator Clark completed
the San Pedro road at a cost of Sj,KKi,000
without selling a bond, and he proposes
that none of the company's securities shall
be offered for sale in less than two years.
In view of the sensational developments
In the Cincinnati, Hamilton & Dayton tran
sactions, giving intimation as to railroad
high finance, financiers look with interest
upon the fact that a member of the United
States senate has furnished an example of
more conservative methods in organizing
and managing railroad properties. The ag
gregate of (40,000,000 which has been applied
to building and equipping the San Pedro,
Los Angeles A Salt Lake road has come
from the members of Senator Clark's syn
St. Louis financiers have invested about
$2,000,000 In the enterprise. They say that
It has not been easy to conform with Sen
ator Clark's policy, which required them to
meet his calls for funds promptly and in
legal tender. The senator gave notice In
advance of the amounts which would be
needed at specified dates for certain work,
and when tbe assessments were duly an
nounced, he expected and got ready re
sponses. Senator Clark's own Income is
estimated at 12,000.000 to $3,000,000 a month,
and, ef course, he met the financial de
mands Just as his associates did.
The railroad which was built without the
sale of bonds the bondless railroad runs
from Salt Lake City to the port of San
Pedro, Cal., near Los Angeles. It was put
In service Christmas week, when the first
train was operated from Chicago to Los
Angeles. It has trackage arrangements
with the Chicago & Northwestern and the
Union Pacific for regular through service
between Chicago and Los Angeles.
Work is at present progressing on a
branch from Las Vegas to Bullfrog Mine,
Nev. This line will cost H,D00.nuO. and it
will be finished without the sale of bonds.
In all probability the branch will be ex
tended from Bullfrog to Tonopah without
the sale of bonds. The total cost of the
branch from Las Vegas to Tonopah will be
about K 000,000.
The San Pedro line penetrates a rich min
eral country, and It Is a favorite project of
the senator's because his wealth is derived
from minerals. The enterprise was the out
come of one which had been originated by
Richard C. Kerens of St. Louis. Mr. Kerens
and a St Louis syndicate acquired Termi
nal island, at the port of San Pedro, and
built about fifty miles of track.
When Senator Clark acquired the property
in order to build the present San Pedro
line most of the members of the St. Louis
syndicate withdrew ' their Investments,
amounting to S3,OUO,0u0. But Mr. Kerens in
creased his interest in the senator's project
and Induced other St. Louis capitalists to
invest. The St. Louis members of aWnator
