Jamestown Want Nebraska Aid.
Governor Mickey will appoint throe or
five volunteer commissioners to represent
Nebraska at the Jamestown exposition to
be held beginning May, 1907, providing
the men will serve without compensation
or without expense to the state.
This announcement was made by the
governor after an Interview with Charles
W. Kohlsuat and George IX Meiklejohn,
the former being the exposition commts
sloncr sent to Nebraska to interest tho
peoplo in the exposition.
"Mr. Kohlsaat explained the exposition
to me," said Governor Mickey, "and a skid
that a commission be appointed to select
a site for a Nebraska building.- He sug
gested that this commission could be
composed of men who would pay their
own expenses and then report to the next
legislature. I shall appoint the commis
sion, but I do not know whether the legis
lature will look favorably upon an ap
propriation for a building.
"The exposition, however, will be a mag
nificent affair, as Mr. Kahlsaat explained
It to me, and no doubt many people from
Nebraska will attend it . I think the sta'.e
should be represented by a commission.
Jamestown is the , most historical spot
In America and it is right in tho midst
of historical spots. The Hoots from all
the nations of the world will be a sight
Mr. Kohlsaat was well pleased with his
Interview with Governor Mickey and he
bas hopes that Nebraska will have an ex
"I desire a commission appointed seen,'
he said, "so if the legislature concludes
to make an appropriation for a building
or an exhibit the commission will have
everything in readiness so there will be
no delay ..The commission ran select tho
site for a building and then if the legis
lature makes an appropriation everything
will be all right, and if tho legislature
does not make an appropriation, the state
will be out nothing because of the ap
point merit of a commission. I have no
doubt there will be plenty of men in Ne
braska who will bo willing to serve with
out compensation." .
