rvrvixK or the statu Ciirrnsir
The establishment of a tuition foe to
be exacted from nonresident student
at the University of Nebraska is her
alded as a step marking a radical
change In the policy of that institution.
While the amount of the tuition,
namely, $30, Is a mere bagatelLe inso
far as reimbursing the state for money
expended In instructing a nonresident
student or offsetting the taxes paid by
the average Nebraskan who sends his
children there to be educated. It Is
said to be the first bar ever put tip to
restrict attendance and the first sign
that for the future "bigness" Is to be
subordinated to "thoroughness" In
state university progress.
If this move really supports the In
terpretation put upon It, then the ac
tion of the board of Regents In raising
the nonresident tuition fee should be
hailed with satisfaction by all friends
of the university. The University of
Nebraska has future greatness before
it if It will but set limits to its field of
operations and pursue a steadily
progressive policy toward a definite
goal. That goal Bhould be to provide
tho best education possible for the
young men and women of Nebraska
with a view to fitting them for the du
ties of enlightened citizenship.
It Is not necessary to make a state
university, supported out of revenues
derived chiefly from taxation, a far
fanied seat of research attracting stu
dents from all parts of the country,
but it is desirable, if not necessary,
that Instruction 6hould be specially
adapted to the character and qualifica
tions of the students entitled to par
ticipate In Its advantages. Certain
branches of learning are basic and
must be taught in all universities and
colleges, but a publicly supported uni
versity in an acricultural state like
Nebraska, where the students are for
the most part sons and daughters of
farmers and stock raisers, should lay
special stress on preparing the youth
to return back to the soil. Without
going backward in any other depart
ment, tho University of Nebraska
ought to develop its agricultural Bchool
and push It to the forefront. It should
aim to mako it the best not the big
gest center of scientific argrlculture
In this section, and eventually In the
Success along these lines will be
worth far more than any Inflated list
of university attendance designed to
make people believe that the per cap
ita cost of .student education has been
reduced to insignificance.
Sanitary milk bottles.
Physicians pretty generally agree, as
nearly as physicians can agree on any
thing, that unsanitary conditions of
milk and the handling of it is respons
ible for much of the typhoid fever of
the country. Investigations conducted
In different cities have shown rather
conclusively that one source of the
spread of typhoid germs has been the
use of glass bottles for milk distribu
tions, or rather the Improper cleans
ing of these bottles by servants or
milk vendors. These bottles usually
have the injunction blown In the glass
that they are to be washed and re
turned, but the injunction Is honored
more In the breach than In the ob
servance. The remnant In tho bottles
is allowed to sour and accumulate
dust and germs until the bottle Is re
turned to the dealer, where It may be
or may not be thoroughly cleansed
and disinfected,' according to the care
exercised at the milk plant in such
New York milk dealers are now con
sidering a proposition to do away with
the glass bottles and to substitute for
them perfectly sanitary bottles made
of paper which are to be used for one
delivery only. The strong argument
in favor of the proposition la that the
use of the bottle but once would re
move all danger of the spread of dis
ease by contagion, due to repeated use
of an uncleanly bottle. The question
of a pure milk supply Is one of the
utmost Importance and the public will
encourage every element that promises
Improvement In that direction.
A NEW BRASD OF PHILANTHROPY.
Rudolph Spreckles, the young multi
millionaire of San Francisco, offers a
rather startling innovation In gifts for
philanthropic purposes. Philanthropy
has come to be too generally accepted
as a synonym for charity, due to the
fact that most gifts by philanthropists
are more or less charitable In their
nature and purposes. The gifts of Mr.
Carnegie, Mr. Rockefeller, Mrs. Sago,
Mr. Peabody and other contributors to
funds established for the building and
support of colleges, hospitals, libraries
and like Institutions have practically
all been ma ere with a partial purpose
at least of helping Institutions and in
dividuals without sufficient" means to
carry on their work unaided. Mr.
Spreckles calls attention to the fact
that philanthropy has a broader field,
is not limited to the alleviation of per
sonal or Institutional needs, but may
be employed In the accomplishment of
"a desire and readiness to do good to
all men," which he conceives to be the
true definition of the term. Mr.
Spreckles proposes to make clvlo bet
terment everywhere the purpose of his
This new turn In philanthropy takes
the form of an offer to pay the entire
expense of the Investigation of the
corruption that has cursed the city of
San Francisco. His proposition is to
meet every Item of expenditure In
carrying on the inquiry In the courts,
the trials, and the relentless pursuit of
Individuals and corporations, great or
email, Implicated In the bribery and
corruption scandals that have been un
earthed la the last tew months. He
declares that he understands the great
ness of the task, but that he is willing
to devote his life to the work and to
spend every cent of his fortune, if
thes step are neceary, to accom
plish his purpose; that of making San
Francisco a city that will not harbor
boodlers, grafters, bribe givers, bribe
takers or millionaire corrupters of
councils and city officials.
Already the argument Is being ad
vanced that Mr. Spreckles' money Is
tainted; that his fortune was made by
trust methods In sugar dealing; that
he Is using the machinery of the state
and city to vent personal spites, and
that it Is the business of the state and
city, not of the individual, to enforce
the law and punish its violators. Peo
ple who want decent government will
not take suth arguments very seriously.
While it is true that the public au
thorities should prosecute offenders,
the fact remains that officials are too
often subject to the very influences
they are expected to prosecute. What
ever complaints may be made, the pub
lic will look upon Mr. Spreckles' offer
as philanthropy of the broadest kind,
tho philanthropy that proposes to be
stow the highest benefaction upon a
city by cleansing It of official leprosy.
POINT IS NOT WELL TAKEN.
Over-zealous critics are making a
point that the constitutional amend
ment enlarging the supreme court
adopted by the legislature is defective
because the resolution does not in so
many words provide for its submission
to the people. This point 13 not well
taken. Whatever the defects or ob
jectionable features may be, the
method of legislative action on the
amendment has ample precedent and
nothing is omitted that will prevent It
from becoming part of Nebraska's fun
damental law In case it receives the
necessary majority of votes cast at the
election next year.
Nothing In the constitution of Ne
braska requires the legislature to give
Epeclflc orders for the submission of
constitutional amendments every time
an amendment Is agreed to. On tho
contrary, the constitution, Itself, de
fines each step required to Incorporate
a change in that instrument and these
orders go direct to the officers who are
to carry them out. All that the legis
lature need do Is to propose the amend
ment by an affirmative vote of three
fifths of the members of each house
and the rest comes by itself under the
general provisions of law. After be
ing duly attested the amendment goes
to the secretary of state, upon whom
devolves the duty of giving notice to
the voters at the proper time by pub
lication and inserting the proposition
on the official ballot along with the
names of candidates for state offices.
The voters are then free to express
themselves for or against, and the
election officers must count and can
vass the vote and report the same to
the next legislature.
This Is the course that has been fol
lowed time and again. The amend
ment which was declared adopted In
1886 Increasing the pay of the mem
bers of the legislature was in this
form, and so were the amendments
submitted, but lost in 1896 and again
in 1904. There will be no trouble,
therefore. In the submission of the
present proposed amendment, nor in
putting it into effect in case it is rati
fied at the polls.
BEFOHSIINQ THE MESV CARD.
An effort is being made to drive the
French language from Its last strong
hold. For a century or more French
was recognized as the language of di
plomacy, being used exclusively by all
nations In treaties, protocols, pourpar
lers and other indentures that figure
in eorreopondence and negotiations
between nations. When Admiral
Dewey performed the ceremony In
Manila bay of introducing the United
States as a world power and giving
"shirt-sleeve" diplomacy an Interna
tional significance, most of the powers
discovered suddenly that their diplo
matic representatives could speak and
write the English language or the
plain United States improvement of it.
English was used in the peace negotia
tions at Portsmouth, which ended the
war between Russia and Japan and the
treaty of Algeclras, for the purpose of
protecting various interests in Mor
occo, was written in English.
That was the first body blow at the
French language and preparations are
being made to land the second. London
hotel and restaurant keepers have now
started a movement which Is being
taken up In New York and other cities
In the east to abolish French on menu
cards and substitute plain English. The
movement will have the hearty ap
proval of the public. While the aver
age man who takes an occasional meal
away from home fares better than the
Mlssourlan, who picked out seven
Items In French from the restaurant
menu card and got potatoes cooked in
seven different ways, he will appreciate
a change which will give him an even
chance for his money, to the extent at
least of understanding what he is ask
ing for. Whatever the origin, no
reasonable excuse remains for requir
ing a man to order "polsson" when he
wants fish, any more than for expect
ing him to wrench his tongue In at
tempting "huitres" when a plain oyster
stew will do. The American, from the
west at least, would find real satisfac
tion In ordering "beef and gravy and
let the blood follow the knife," Instead
ot wondering what was going to come
along with "boeuf a la Anglalse, au
Jus." Why "pommel de terre" rather
than "spuds" for the hungry diner who
wants more potatoes, and is not "one
tn the dark" equal to "cafe nolr" for
coffee without cream?
The hotel and restaurant keepers
who eliminate the incomprehensible
and unpronounceable words from their
bills of fare should profit by increased
patronage from the home folks who
study the Frenchified cards until the
waiter begins to snicker, and then take
refuge in an order for ham and eggs.
Only a perverted notion of style has per
petuated the use of French nomencla
ture on menu cards and tho hungry
public will bf glad to see It abolished.
WHAT IS WHISKY
President Roosevelt, Attorney Gen
eral Bonaparte, Secretary Wilson and
Chief Chemist Wiley have collaborated
an official document which files right
in the face of the Kentucky Colonel's
dictum, long accepted In booze circles
as gospel truth, that: "All whisky is
good; some whisky is better than
others, but there is no bad whisky."
The official decision of tho Washington
authorities is thus set forth In the
president's letter to Secretary Wilson
of the Department of Agriculture:
My licar Mr. Secretary: In accordance
with your suggestions I have submitted the
matter concerning- the proper lubcllng of
whisky under the pure food law to the De
partment of Justice. I enclose the attorney
general's opinion. 1 agTee with this opinion
and direct that action be taken in accord
ance with It.
Straight whisky will be labeled as such.
A mixture of two or more straight
whiskies will be labeled blended whisky
A mixture of straight whisky and ethyl
alcohol, -provided that there Is a sufficient
amount of straight whisky to make it gen
uinely a "mixture," will be labeled aa com
pound of or compounded with pure grain
Imitation whisky will be labeled as such.
The Kentucky Colonel and his asso
ciate members In the Independent
Order of Booze Fighters can find but
one source of congratulation in this
decision the official recognition of
whisky as "food" and subject to regu
lation under the provisions of the pure
food law. The decision Is a triumph
for Dr. Wiley, whe has been fight
ing the blended whisky Interests for
years. Dr. Wiley's contention that
"bottled In bond" whisky la the real
whisky has been combatted by the dis
tillers and Jobbers, who Insist that a
blended whisky is not an adulterated
whleky and that the pure whisky, euch
as Dr. Wiley urges, would be utterly
unfit for drinking purposes. The fight
has been a hot one and will doubtless
be continued in the courts.
It is too early to determine what
effect the decision will have upon the
liquor venders and their patrons. The
average whisky drinker kuows, but
will never admit that he knows, that
ho cannot tell one brand of booze from
another If it comes out of the same
bottle, and while he claims that he
drinks It for the purpose of cultivating
the sociability germ, he really drinks
it for the warming, stimulating effect,
and so long as he gets that he does not
care whether it Is labeled "Rotgut" or
"XXXX." The new rule may require
the exercise of a little extra diplomacy
on the part of the bartender, but after
the first round or two, the average
patron will be content to order "a little
of the same" and let it go at that.
The people out at Kearney seem to
take 'it greatly to heart because Gov
ernor Sheldon has seen fit to veto the
appropriation for a new building for
the Kearney Normal school. The peo
ple of Omaha are sorry the governor
felt constrained to veto the appropria
tion for a new building for the School
for the Deaf, located here, but they
do not take personal umbrage over It,
because they regard theso appropria
tions not particularly for the benefit of
Omaha, but rather for the benefit of
A Norwegian paper announces that
President Roosevelt will deliver a lec
ture In that country in March, 1909, In
compliance with the rules governing
the Nobel peace prlzo awarded to him
last year. The president, If he keeps
that engagement, Is either going to re
tire from public life at the expiration
of his present term or break another
precedent by visiting a foreign country
during his term of office.
President Woodrow Wilson of
Princeton has given testimony In a
public address to the efficacy of tobacco
chewing as leading to "ruminative
habits" productive of deep thoughts
and opinions of weight. The next
question that will be put up to Presi
dent Wilson will be whether chewing
gum is a proper substitute for tobacco.
The condition of the appropriation
of $25,000 for the foundation of a new
building for the State Historical so
ciety is that the city of Lincoln shall
furnish to tho state a designated block
or another site "equally as good." It
will behoove the 6tate officers charged
with the approval of the substitute site
to keep their eyes peeled.
Governor Sheldon contributes to a
symposium on the future of President
Roosevelt by Baying that he regards
him as "a superior man for any posi
tion, whether it be that of United States
senator or general director of construc
tion work on the Panama canal." That
certainly Is keeping the ball close to
the safety line.
Colonel Bryan says he Is for giving
government regulation of railroads a
fair test, although be is convinced In

made effective. A fair test of govern

be what the gamblers would call a

To men and women and gone away;
And we sit in the dark and we sit alone
And dwell on the pleasures of yf sterday;
Of tho winding path through the orchard
Of the old wood lot and the grupevln
Of the dusty roads where the sun shone
Of the elms where tho orioles used to
Of our childhood days and the friends we
