LINCOLN. Dec. 30.-(Speclal.) "Tha
statement In The Be thla morning retard
ing the unlvenlty finances, la the senti
ment of the state generally," said Secre-tary-elct
Junkin. "There Is no reason why
the finances of the Btate university should
not be handled exactly as the finances of
other state Institutions. The vouchers for
all warrants should go through the hands
of the state auditor and he should pass
upon them as he does upon other vouchers
upon w hich state money 'Is paid out. The
university should be put on a business
"Two years ago an attempt was made
to get an accounting through the legisla
ture, but the university lobby was ton
powerful and It failed. Since then, how
ever, sentiment has changed and the time
has come when the legislature will deal
with tho university as It does with other
tate Institutions, and for every cent ex
pended there will be an accounting. It Is
Just a matter of business.
"The people of the state are Just as much
Interested In the development of the State
university as the people of Lincoln, and It
can be trusted to the legislature, without
any deception being practiced. A thorough
Investigation of the Institution, together
with the enactment of a law changing the
present method of handling and paying
out the appropriations to conform to the
methods employed In the other Institutions
will help the university more than any
thing else. The people of the state have
a right to know every detail of the affairs
of the Institutions.
"The constitution provides that all claims
Khali be audited by the, state auditor, and
J have no doubt If the auditor should re
fuse to Issue a warrant upon a certificate
from the secretary to the Board of Regents
he would be upheld by the supreme court,
notwithstanding; the statute bearing on this
As anticipated, the afternoon edition of
the fake reformers, asserted yesterday, that
a discussion of the Juggled report of uni
versity finances filed with the state auditor
Was Inspired by Omaha's Jealousy of Lin
coln. Tills fake sheet has been the head
or a part of the big university lobby
which has prevented for so many years the
placing of, the mnnagement of the Institu
tion on a business basin, and an Inspection
of the university records will show a rea
son for this.
Statesmen Visit Capital.
Lieutenant Oovemor-elect Hopewell Is
here todty attending to private business
and looking around for a -place to stay
this winter when he Is here presiding over
the deliberations of the senate.
"I believe the legislature will enact such
law a ns the republican platform desig
nated," laid Judge Hopewell, "and. while
I have given the matter very little thought
o far, I believe there will be no disposi
tion to shirk any of the responsibilities Im
posed by the party pledges."
Mlchuel Lee, the Irish statesman from
Douglas county. Is here again today, talk

that he Intended to get his Qrenter Omaha

sible Dr. AValden wanted to be early on
IHIckey Denounces 8tory.
Governor Mickey today Issued the fol
lowing self-explanatory statement:
My attention has been called to an article
which Is credited to the Cologne News, a
German newspaper, purporting to be a
cable dispatch from Lincoln, Neb., to the
effect that Cora Gnrber, an employe of the
tate, working In the office of the commix
Floner of public lands and buildings, has
publicly stated that a private society lo
cated In Nebraxka la Importing children or
working age from Germany und selling
them to Nebraska farmers at the rute ot
Such a statement Is too ridiculous to
merit serious consideration. 1 here are no
facts to warrant such an assertion. X'ora
Garber Is now one of the defendants In
a libel suit Instituted by the former of
ficers of the Tahltha home of IJneoln, and
she seems to have a deep-so ted splu-
against the Institution. The 1 abltha home
is a rhatltartle Institution for the rare ot
fri'Prtle children and Is now under the
, mariaifpment of the Lutheran churrh. T h-
tatement is calculated to do injury to in
fair reputation of the state and It Is fin
that rea-sim that I make this explanation.

over every school house on the zone, should
promote a growth of American Ideas and
American patriotism among the growing

public education on the zone has fallen on
the appropriation for the construction of
the canal. Up to this time all expenses
have been paid from funds of the canal
zone and of the different municipalities,

upon the funds appropriated for the con

The battle for tl gas Is fairly on In -t
Omaha, according to statement of several 1
members of the city council, the chairman j
of the lighting committee In particular.
Councilman Funkhouser, chairman of the
lighting committee, Thursday afternoon ,
The Intentions of the committee Is to
go so far as to condemn and appraise the
plant of the Omaha Gas company and aub- i
mit to the voters of Omaha a proposition j
to vote bonds and acquire the plant under
provisions of the city charter. Assistant I
City Attorney Dunn Is now working on
the necessary resolutions and an ordinance !
to carry out this plan.
A concurrent resolution, declaring the
necessity of acquiring the gas plant, will j
be Introduced at the first meeting In Janu
ary. I feel confident of strong support In
the council chamber. Mayor Dahlman al
ready hoe expressed himself In favor of
such procedure If the city legal depart
ment would advise it. The city legal de
partment has advised it. Following the
concurrent resolution will be an ordinance
to perfect the plan. This will entail an
appraisement by five appraisers and a vote
on the Issuance of bonds. The proposition
of municipal ownership of a gas plant
with gas at $1 or less will then be up to
IjuI Stand of Committee.
"The lighting committee of the city coun
cil confesses this is Its last stand to secure
tl gas, as promised In the democratic plat
form which was signed by mayor, council
men and others of the administration. The
committee realizes the voters may think
twice before they vote for this proposition,
In view of the pending water works liti
gation and the possibility of having to
buy the water works, but after a final
effort to Induce the Omaha Gas company
to furnish tl ga, the committee Intends to
take this action on the advice of not only
the city legal department, but several
other lawyers of Omaha, the latter con
curring In the opinion of the former In
the matter of the city's right to condefhn
and acquire the gaa plant regardlesa of
the existing franchise.
"Part of Section 7 of the existing gas
franchise ordinance, which expiree In 1918, ;
I'nder this ordinance the city of Omaha
reserves all rights, authority and powers
which now exist, and all rights, authority
and powers which may thereafter exist In
favor of said city under Its charter, to
condemn, appropriate and purchase the gas
works, mains and appurtenances of said
company. Its successors or assigns for the
i-.se of the said city. 1
"The present contention now ls that the
city charter gives the city the i absolute
right to proceed as the lighting committee
Intends to do In the gas matter. City
charter references are Sections HO, 1 and 2."
Complaint on ftas mils.
Councilman Funkhouser yesterday after
"The lighting committee of the city coun
cil has been receiving complaint after com
plaint from citizens W'ho seek redress In
the matter of gas. It has been alleged on
every hand that gas bills have been ex
cessive since the lost reduction of gas,
which was from $1.25 to $1.15, If paid be
fore the tenth of the month. 1 am con
vinced from personal experience that there
is something wrong In the gas supply and
went personally to the gas company offi
cials and registered a kick. I was told In
thn,t quarter that the pressure might be
too strong at some points on account of
the necessity of pumping tho gas long
"The question of the quality of gas to
be furnished In Omaha will, it Is believed,
have beep, thoroughly established within a
few weeks, as the gas commissioner ordi
nance will be Introduced at the next coun
cil meeting, which probably will be next
Wednesday evening, Tuesday lielng Christ
mas. The other members of the council
have expressed themselves In favor of the
measure and Its passage Is nearly assured.
The proposed method of gas Inspection, as
outlined In this ordinance, has been re
ferred to before. Tha measure has been
designed after three months' investigation
and consultation with omeialH of other
cities having such gaa regulation."
