giving out an official statement of the
attendance at the university. In attempt
ing to show ths attendance Is rapidly in
creasing the registrar included In his
statement of students some BOO who are reg
istered at the University School of Music,
which Is not maintained by the state. The
table of attendance Is published this morn
ing In a quarter page display advertise
ment in the Journal.
According to members of the legislature
who have visited Lincoln there Is no dis
position to hamper the university In its
funds, but there Is a growing sentiment
for an open accounting with the state.
These legislators say the university cash
must be checked up through the state audi
tors office and that all vouchers must be
filed with him and all warrants Issued
upon his approval, as the constltutfon pro
vides. The fact that the university au
thorities have so long and so successfully
fought this proposition has cdused ugly
rumors to arise regarding the university
cash and the legislators interviewed seem
to think it strange the university officials
themselves are not In favor of a change.
In this connection a statement by A. E.
Sheldon of the university, on file in the
state house and used extensively before
the legislature two years ago, will be of
Interest. Mr. Sheldon said:
The annual Income of the university Is
now one-tenth of all the rest of the pub
lic school system and the ratio of uni
versity students .to all school children Is
about 1 to 100. This is too wide a gap
and it ought to be closed by moving the
column"! up from below.
It it understood the university officials
will have a giant lobby on hand this
winter to prevent the legislature from en- 1
acting a law whereby the university cash
will be handled the same as other state
money and the big stick will be wielded
fiercely. In fact, there Is no doubt In the
minds, of those who know that the big
university stick has already been stuck up
In the face of state officials, but whether
the lobby will succeed remains to be seen.
Captata Chase In City.
Captain Wilson Chase, former command
ant of cadets at the' State university,
stopped off In Lincoln yesterday to shake
hands with old friends. Captain Chase has
Just returned from the Philippines, where
his regiment, the Twenty-first infantry, has

Chase last night declared that he had no
personal knowledge of the charges against
Oeneral Pershing and expressed the hope
that a complete Investigation would expose
the error in the charges.

that the bridge had been paid for twice

stating that he and his clerk had filed
duplicate bills which were allowed by
the board some time after the bridge was

pared. Then the ceremony had to be
abandoned because the groom was not yet

Obliged to Lie With Limbs Higher

Agonies and Could Not Walk
Doctor Said It Was the Worst
Case he Ever Saw.
CURE BY CUTICURA
I received your letter asking fot
Information about using the Cuticura
Itemediea. I used them for ecsenia.
The doctor said it was the worst case
he ever saw. It was on both limbs,
from the leneea to the ankles. We
tried everything the doctors knew of,
but the Uuticura Kennedies aid the
most good. 1 was obliged to lie with
my limbs higher than my head, for the
rin was so terrible I oould not walk,
suffered untold agonies. One limb '
wasted away a great deal smaller than
the other, there was so much discharge
from it. I found the Cuticura Rem
edies very soothing, and I still keep them
in the bouse. 1 am very thankful to
say that I am cured, and you can pub
lish this statement if you wUh. I found
the Cuticura Remedies all that you say
they are. I hope that you may be
spared many years to make the Cuticura
llemediea for the benefit of persons suf
fering from the torture of skin diseases,
such as I had. I remain, yours re
spectfully, Mrs. Golding, Box 8, Ayr,
Canada, June , 1905."
CORED OF CHAPPED HANDS
" I have used the Cuticura Soap for
chapped hands, which I had been
troubled with for about three years. I
suffered intense pain and itching. I i
used nearly two cakes of the Cuticura
8oap. and my hands were comlotely
cured and have never troubled nte
since. 1 also took the Cuticura Resol
vent for the blood at the same time.
I ran recommend the Cuticura Rem
edies to others suffering the same.

Double Track on In Ion Pacific and
Depot on Northwestern.
FREMONT, Neb., Dec. 21. (Special.)
From present Indications the work of
double tracking the Union Pacific between
Valley and Kearney will be rapidly pushed
at this end of the line this winter. A. H.
Norrls will have charge of the civil en
gineering work for the company In this
vicinity, and has secured offices In the Com
mercial National bank building and will
move his family here. It Is expected that
about thirty-five mles will be completed
this winter. The engineering outfit Is al
ready on the ground.
An Inspection trip by President Hughltt
of the Northwestern and a number of other
officials of that road to the Fremont yards
'yesterday, is stirring up a great deal of
Interest In railroad circles. The plans for
the new freight depot, which Is to be lo
cated near ths corner of C and First streets.
provide for a fine two-story building with
a large freight shed attached: a much
better building than that of either of the
other roads. The facilities of the Union
depot are proving too small, and It Is
generally believed among railroad men that
a new Northwestern passenger depot on
the site of the old one Is among the proba
bilities of the near future.
