At i and Buildings this' afternoon an opinion ;1 was aeceived from the attorney serin. n . relative to the claim of Dr. Aldcti for liny j 1 an superintendent of the Norfolk asylum I subsequent to the appointment of Dr. Voung ss his- successor.' No final action vti take by the board, however. It txi- Ing thought beat to obtain a written ' waiver from Dr. Young before allowing the salary to Dr. Allien. The opinion bold that Dr. Tonne having performed . no services nor presented a claim for j pay, Dr. Aldcn la entitled to the money. 1 The matter of the contract for food , elevators at the Hatting asylum wan I also to be considered, it being understood : that Architect Qeorge Rerllngbof, who I was appointed to Investigate, wan, ready to report. Mr. Berllnghof was unable to .be present, however, bo the matter went over, Bryaa Dodges Hearst. William J. Bryan or his political man agers have adopted an 'adroit and clover method by which -the possibility of the Nebraska gentleman entcredlng New York stats to take to the hunting In support of the gubernatorial aspirations of bailor W. R. Hearst is rather effectually pre cluded. Mr. Hearst, according to infor mation leaking from exclusive circle In the democratic camp, lias been anxious for some time to Induce Bryan to go to the Empire state and turn loose his oratory la the editor's behalf. No formal re quest from the editor campaign man agers has reached Bryan for obvious rea sons. Hearst hss ambitions higher thsn ths New York governorship and as Brysn Is on ths same track the editor evidently has not cared to Invite a refusal on Bryan's part by asking the latter to enter i New York. The multi-millionaire pub 1 Usher has, felt,' howevet, that Bryan, In y asmuch as he a-ea marked out a prolonged tour of ths.. central states, should step over Into New York to lend his aid to the democratic ticket. But f Bryan Is not going to New York. This Is quite! evident. His msnagers have gons ahead persistently for the past two weeks booking him for speeches In the 1 1 central states, and it Is now apparent that 1 1 thsas da. is are to take all of his time, thus shutting out any such thing as a swing around the circle In New York stats. ' Today if 'was announced at the Bryan headquarters that he Is to jump to ths east after his trip to Colorado next Saturday and devote a full week to In diana, and Ohio, speaking three days in each state. The four days Immediately preceding election day will find Mr. Bryan eratlng to the voters of his horns state, Nebraska. This ' program leaves only three days open October 29. 30 and SI, and with so brief a time at his disposal it Is a polltlrs,! absurdity to predict that they will be, devoted to is. tour of New York !n support of Hearst.' The likely solu tion will be the booking of two more days In Ohio, Indiana or Illinois, while on the third day he will be .hiking for that dear Id Lincoln to -prepare for his four days' tour of hia horns state.

Fresh mum President Ducked. Student circles at Nebraska university were wrought up today over one of the liveliest 'class scraps In the history of the Institution. The turmoil resulted from the annual election of a president of the freshmen class. In which P. J. Heskett of Lincoln was the victor over George Wal lace of Omaha. It hss been the custom for years at the university for the sopohO' mores to either break up the freshmen election or to heap some indignity upon the "freshios" In order that the latter may" not put on patrician airs. Chsncellor Andrews heard of the im pending row and made a personal appeal to Samuel RlnaJcer, president of the "sophs," to urge his classmates to lot the freshmen proceed In peace. Rinaker gave the de sired pledge, but It was without avail, for the freshmen had no sooner adjourned their meeting when the sophomores captured Heskett and loaded him Into a delivery wagon. A mad drive followed through the streets to the Thompson fountain, eight blocks south of the campus, where a mock court decreed that Heskett should be given a ducking. A squad of freshmen appeared upon the scene at that Juncture, but they were routed and four of their party taken captive. The ceremony of immersion fol lowed in due form. Heskett and his four classmates emerging from the ice bath with the water streaming from their clothes. The police had sought to prevent sny demonstration, three uniformed men being dispatched to the university to stand guard, but the sophomores outwitted the officers and proceeded with the ducking while the guardians of the law were patrolling the university grounds and hsd lulled them selves Into the belief that they had the situation well in hand. nssband and Wife Drag; Fiends. After once procuring his relesse on habeas corpus from the Lincoln stse hnnpKaJ. where he was confined ss a dipso maniac patient, Leroy Craig of Mitchell, Scott's Bluff county, has been returned to the Institution on a charge similar to the first one.

Crnig' has been at Denver and taken the Keeley cure sine Ms former Incarceration, but It did not remove his craving for drugs. He Is a practicing physician. The couple have no children. After Omaha Mai. The presence of fifteen witnesses from Council Bluffs at the federal grand lury session in Lincoln this week hss given rise to a rumor that an Indictment Is pond ing against C T. Stewart, a wealthy resi dent of Council Bluffs, who Is a member of the wholesale grocery firm of Stewart Bros, at Omaha, In connection with al leged land frauds .In McPherson county, Neb. Stewart Is heavily Interested In cat tle raising, and In addition to a large ranch has for a number of years been pasturing herds on part of the -public domain which was fenced in for the purpose. The, wit nesses from Council Bluffs, It Is reported. sre men who went to McPherson county at Stewart's request, took up homestead within his grazing area and shortly after ward assigned their claims to him. The rumors of sn Indictment to be returned against Stewart have been so persistent that his lawyer from Council Bluffs, Km mett Ttnley, Is in Lincoln to Invellyate the matter. Besides the Stewart matter the grand jury Is also Investigating the oharge that Wellker, a Council Bluffs meat dealer, is under suspicion ef having acted ss Stew art's agent In the alleged fraudulent entries. The specific charge s that he secured claimants to go to McPherson county to settle on the land. Nearly flf teen cltlsens of Council Bluffs sre now In Lincoln to testify before the Jury. Most of them say they made the trip to Mc Pherson county, filed on government lend. and afterwards , sold their interests to Stewart.

DAKOTA CITY. Neb., Oct. IS. (Special Tcii t urn.) Notwiilismnuing that termers aie i.u:- hum-sung a high-priced and bountiltii crop of potatoes and a driszllng run suit uft in just btfore the commenc ing of the meeting, Uio afternoon repub lican rally ueld at the court house halt in this ptace today was will attended. The tntetlng was addressed by Edward O. Maggl oi Lincoln, Judge J. V. Boyd, ri publican congressional candidate; Judgo Melville It. Hnewell, candidate for lieu tenant governoi ; G ?orge. K. Wilts of Ran dolph, candidate for senator; Carl L. W( borg of Cuming county, candidate tor representative; Fred 8. Berry, candidate for county attorney, and George L. Shel don, candidate for governor, who deliv ered the principal address. Mr. Shel don's address was an able one, covering the state issues and standing for thu enactment of laws embodied in the state platform. Mr. felieldon called attention to the discrimination of freight rates against Dakota City. In this regard he said In part: The rate from Omaha to Minneapolis on wheat originating west of Omaha Is rents per hundred; tin- rate on whrai from Dakota City to Minneapolis, 10 miles shorter haul. Is 14' cents; the rate on wheal from Dakota City to Omaha Is H cents, the distance Is llii miles. In Iowa the rate for the same distance is RVfc cents. The rste on corn from Da kota City to Omaha Is II cents per hun dred, while In Iowa for the same dis tance It Is 7 1-1 cents. The rate on lum ber from Dakota City to Minneapolis, ITS miles, is 18 cents per hundred, while the rata from Omaha to Dakota City, IK mlls, is 13 cents. The rate on lumber In Iowa for 116 miles Is 6 63-100 cents. Party Demands Equality. "The reason these comparisons of Ne braska freight rates with those of Iowa and Minnesota were made." Mr. Bh!do said, "was because the republican party of Nebraska Is trying to secure railway legislation through an elective railway commission, such as Iowa and Minnesota have, and by this means secure lower and equitable freight rates with our ad Joining states. The present plan pro posed by the republican party Is one which can be made effective and will not be de clared unconstitutional, as was the case with the maximum freight law." In the adjustment of passenger and freight rates, Mr. Sheldon said lie wanted lower freight rates and a 2-rent passen ger rate on all the roads In Nebraska If It could be secured, but In fixing these rates It should be home In mind that a road such ss the O'Neill Short Line, earn ing only $83 per mile per annum, could not be placed on the same basis as the Union Pacific system In Nebraska, earn ing over 17.000 per mile per annum. Mr. Sheldon urged his hearers to stand for the policies sdvocated by him by voting for the republican nominees for both branchs of the Nebraska legislature and for congressmen. Judge Boyd stood for President Roose velt and the principles enunciated by him. MVLLEN. Neb., Oct. 15. (Special Tele gram.)

(Special.) At the republican meeting held here a large and appreciative audience listened to animated speeches made by L. H. Cheney, county attorney of Frontier county; A. Wllsey, eenatorial candidate for this dis trict, snd Congressman Norrls. L. H. Cheney spoke briefly of county affairs. Senator Wllsey then spoke of railroad regulation In the state, saying that ths fifty-ninth congress hsd set ths example, and that "It la up to us in the next session of the legislature to supplement tne na tional law." That a railroad rate commis. slon should be elected by the state to amend ths constitution for that purpose. Judge N orris, candidate for congressman of the Fifth district, the main speaker of the evening, was received enthusiastically. Hs said, in part: "The government that is most successful is ths one that brings most happiness to the people. In these political campaigns the only honorable thing to do Is to treat every one as you would have them treat you. The presi dent's message to the Fifty-eighth con gress, aa also to the Fifty-ninth, regarding Interstate commerce, was Just and fair. I voted for the bill with all Its provisions, which were also Just, and an elaboration Of the president's message. Congress' ac tion on the meat question was prompt and effective. The Panama canal, which has been the dream of the American people for so long, was made possible by the Fifty-ninth congress. This canal will do more good toward equalizing freight rates than anything else in our political sys tem. The republican party Is a party that does things. The democratic party Is a party that does people." JIMP IS FATAL TO M1C!IARD0 Vletlss Ssppesed ta Have Bees De mented 4t Tisse.
