LINCOLN, Sept. . (Special.) The State Board of Public Lands and Buildings and Superintendent Kearn of the Hastings asylum are having trouble over the con struction of food elevator and the in stallation of engines at the Hasting asylum, and on the face of it the matter looks queer. While the records of . the board fall to disclose the fact, Earl Wee cott haa the contract for something like 18.400. The material Is on hand with which to do the work, but It is held up by mem bers of the board, as the material and engines do not come up to the specification. This contract was Supposed to have been let first to Howard Burns, son of . Joe Burns, along, with other work at the In stitution. Burns concluded his contract did not call for the food elevators and so. he waa released. The bids, though they cannot be located and Chairman Eaton of the board, professes Ignorance of the matter, are said to have varied from $2,100 to W.5n9. After Burns got out of the con tract the matter was left to Dr. Kearn to let the contract. The Mollne company filed a bid and later withdrew It and then the work was given over to Weseott and at the state house It Is said Weseott secured his material from the Mollne company. . Dr. Kearn and Governor Mickey had a long consultation about the matter yester day, but no information waa secured from either of. them. Chairman Eaton was asked why the board had let the contract for 15,400, when the original contract called for about $1,900. He replied: "I know nothing about the matter. The board referred everything to Dr. Kearn and I guess everything Is all right." Mr. Eaton then hustled for the office of Secretary of State Galusha. i It Is understood Governor Mickey will not permit the use of the material now at the Institution and the work has been stopped. Traable for Hlashaw. A report of reliable origin reached Lincoln today of a transaction in which Congressman Hlnshaw was the principal. which will rise up during the campaign to seriously embarrass that gentleman's con gressional committee, unless the story can be successfully refuted.

Express company and United States senstor from New Tork. This transaction occurred shortly after the state convention of last year, which went on record as opposed to free passes of all descriptions and which caused the state of ficers, except Secretary of Stat. Galusha, to return all passes and franks of whatever description. Bryaa's Nebraska Dates. Chairman Allen of the democratic state committee haa announced the following dates for William J.
