LINCOLN, Dec. 14. Special.)-Ttie letter
of Chairman W. B. Ro of tbe republican
state committee, warning legislators of the
difficulties that will be placed In th way
of carrying out the party pledges, an sug
gesting that the plan of having a joint
committee, draft Important legislation w.li
In a groat measure obviate difficulties, has
roce've,! the cordial support of many mem
burs of the legislature. Some of the mem
bers have written Mr. Rose commending
him for making the suggestions contained
In' his letter, and others have called on
him In pel son to 6approvo his action. The
present revenue law was drafted by a Joint
committee and It was passed and stood the
test of the courts. This precedent has
greatly Impressed members of the legisla
ture and there was much favorable talk
Immediately after the election among the
members of pursuing this plan at the coin
ing session. Among the proposed laws that
may be referred to a Joint committee are
the anti-pass law. direct primary law. laws
to tax railway terminals, laws conferring
upon the railway commission power to de
termine and enforce reasonable freight and
passenger rates and other laws promised by
the republican platform.

The report of State Treasurer Mortensen
chows thai of the ST.4JJi.T16 of trust funds In
vested by the state In Interest-bearing se
curities, 5,tBH C2S is Invested In bonds and
coupons and Sl.fsl9.u8? In general fund war
rants. Of the amount Invested In bonds
and coupons, i042.SSl Is Invested In the
bonds of other states, divided as follows:
Massachusetts, ISTT.ttft!; Mississippi. fcST,000;
1st oho, $464,749; Delaware. $20,090; Tennessee,
$260,500; California. $26,000.
The bonds of Massachusetts were the first
bought from any other atate and a ruling
of the supreme court was obtained to au
thorise the Investment. The constitution
permits investments in "state securities,"
and the court ruled that this not only In
cludes warrants of the state of Nebraska,
but bonds Issued by states ether than Ne
braska. The investments in bonds of other
states were deemed wise because county
bonds and state warrants are not available
in sufficient quantities to keep the trust
funds Invested. The Massachusetts bonds
nearly all require payment In gold. There Is
a law In that state which permits the state
to Issue bonds for the payment of municipal
and county improvements. The state Issues
bonds and then collects from the munici
palities and counties that make the Im
provements. Nebraska has no outstanding
bonds of any kind. Its floating debt is rep
resented by outstanding state warrants, and
92 per cent of these warrants are held by
the state as an Investment for the perma
nent school fund.

Lectare oa Cooking.
At Libert hall at the State university at
9 o'clock this morning, the ne-nbers of ths
girls' association listened to u lecturs by
Miss Kosa Boutun. Miss Buutun gave her
hearers some elemental hints on looking
and demonstrations In measuring. She also
spoke briefly on manual training and at
the conclusion of her talk took the girls
to the university kitchen, which proved
a most interesting place to the visitors.
At 11 o'clock the general stssion assem
bled at the chapel of Memorial hall, which
was well filled. E. C. Bishop presided and
ine nrsr. Kbcaker was Dirk J Cnxhv ne
the department of agricultural education of
the United States Department of Agri
culture. Mr. Crosby emphasized the valutt of
menial training and urged the necessity of
a broad educational basis for anyone who
would succeed in any line. This afternoon
W. J. Bryan and others spoke In the audi
torium. Omaha Murderer Appeals.
An appeal brief for Jay O'Hearn, the
Omaha boy murderer under sentence of
death for killing Nell Lausten, was filed
in the supreme court this morning by his
attorney. James P. English. It Is a docu
ment of 145 pages and sets forth In ex
haustive detail the facts and arguments on
which It Is hoped to obtain a
Judgment In the higher court

C'f the h'ne steer exhibited by the State
unixerslty st the Chicago Uve Stock show,
six were prise winners, one of them a 9-
months calf, bred on the university farm.
wmn,ng the grade Angus championship
over all ages, and another, the college
championship over the cattle cf all hreds
and ages exhibited by the various state
universities and agricultural colleges. Had
Mr. Turner, who came from Herefordshire,
England, to Judge the grade steers and
award the grand championship. Judged the
pure-bred steers, the university would have
won the 1 Ruby" a 2-year-old Angus (pure
bred) the same honor that rame to Chal
lenger in 1903, vlx., the grand champion
ship plum. "Ruby," under tbe English
Judge In the college classes, was placed
ahead of the two steers that had defeated
him under a Chicago Judge and was pro
nounced by the English Judge the best
steer in the show. This, however, was
after the grand championship had bfen
awarded to a breeder from Illinois. "Ruby'"
was soli to " The Fair" department store
at 13 cents per pound, live weight, the top
price of the show for single individuals,
bringing for bfef $273. On the yearling
steers entered In the carcass contest, the
University of Nebraska won both first and
second prizes, which Is a strong testimonial
for the system of feeding practiced at our
Lamest Exhibit of School.
The exhibit this year, nine head, was
the largest ever made by the University
of Nebraska and a total of $trfl in prlies
was won, to say nothing of the high prices
received for beef. One of the prize winners
was selected from a carload of calves at
the South Omaha stock yards nearly two
years ago, when a party of students were
being instructed by Prof. Smith on the
selection of feeding steers.
During the p3st few years the university
has won $l,5i0 in prizes at the Interna
tional Stock show on fifteen steers, one
of the number. Challenger, winning 14.T0 In
1903. The hig. prices received for the beef
have more than paid the expenses for ex
hibiting and the prize money hus therefore
been net profit to the state.

Salem Fair Groaads Bold.
RfLO. Neb.. Dec. 14. (Speelal.)-The
oounty fair grounds, located st Salem,
Neb., were sold at slit riff 's sale In Full
City yexterday, to satisfy a mortgage held
by ths Salem Interstate Chautauqua asso
ciation. The property was purchased by
the Richardson Coipity Fair association for
(2,000. This sale terminates a long and bit
ter struggle bctwee-t the adherents of tbe
county fair and the Chautauqua associa
tion. Twelve years ago, when the county
fair began to decline the Chautauqua was
started and at once sprang Into great favor.
The declln of the county fair and the
great succes3 of the Chautauqua caused
oonslderabli dissatisfaction to some of the
Interested parties. The Chautauqua asso
ciation leased the grounds each year from
the director of the County Fair associa
tion, and a fe- years ago the fair authori
ties borrowei $o00 from the Chautauqua
association, giving a mortgage on the
grounds as security. The grounds had to
be soli. At first there were msny bidders,
but they gradually dropped out until only
the Fair and Chautauqua associations re
mained In the contest, the fair winning
out and securing the grounds at $2,000.
