Tribute ta Edward Rosrtvater.
"Edward Rosewater waa one of the
great men of the nineteenth century and
he became a member of the board of ill
rectors In 1904. Realizing the limitations
of the small quarters the association was
occupying, he Induced the board of direc
tors to bur the present site. He .helped
lo stait soliciting subscriptions for a new
Wise Memorial hospital among the citi
zens of Omaha and even Journeyed to
other states for aid. .. IIo not only so
licited ethers, but gave Generously of his
own worldly goods. . "
"All praise, however, dies not belong
to these two,- but must be shared with
battalions which have followed the lead
ers. This institution Is big und grand
enough to reflect credit to a 1 who wero
associated In its construction. May this
Institution, dedicated to charity and love
of fellow men, ever breath tho sentiment
of Its founders."
Victor Rosewater said he was present
as one of the workers in the good cause
to help dedicate the magnificent struc
ture to the sick.
"We do not fully realise that the hos
pital work of the present era Is almost
entirely new and that hospitals are In
ventions of modern times and that In
ancient times little attention . waa paid
to the sick. Hospitals are all the producta
of the alast centurv," said Mr. Rosewater.
Built by Men of Conviction. ,
"This hospital waa built by men and
women who were. convinced of the need
of such an Institution. The attitude to
ward hoHpltals and hospital work has
changed entirely In the last thirty years,
formerly separate hospitals were not
maintained for the sick and for the In
sane, but they were boused together,- and
hence the prejudice. Today we have dif
ferent treatment for all patients.
"President Butler of Columbia university
raid the' largest 'advancement in medical
science hud been made In the prevention
uf disease and he hoped to see the day
when that science wou.d stump out most
diseases. There Is no Immediate danger,
however, of medical- science preventing all
diseases and surely not accident.
"f' would like ta emphasise again the
limitations my late father placed upon
his bequest to this institution, which was
that the fund should be for the use of
free patients. Unless this was done he
would have never given the money, for
he drew no line when people were In dis
tress, unless fully convinced It wouid be
conducted In the way started and that no
discrimination-would have been made In
spite of the fact tltat it was named after
the great Jewish rabbi and that its work
waa carried on by people of the Jewish
"Thla Institution waa not built for the
training of doctors nor trained nurses, nor
for. clinics for students, although all these
may get the best training to be had in
their respective fields. This hospital Is to
afford the best facilities for the sick.

does nut era no at lil time, but to main

(From a Staff 'Correspondent. )
LINCOLN. Feb. 2.-(8peclal.)-In view of
the long-drawn-out debate last year be
tween Ocorge W. Brrge and A. E. Cady
over the constitutional amendment creating
the state railway commission, and the
power it conferred upon the members of
the commission, and the democratic claim
that tho commission had no power except
Ss conferred by the legislature, the recent
decision of the commission in ordering the
Rock Island railroad to construct a depot
at University Place and Mr. Clarke's opin
ion In the matter is attracting considerable
attention. The opinion Is In contradiction
to the position of Mr. Berge in his dis
cussions last summer.
"Mr. Clarke In his opinion quotes the
petition for the establishment of the station
and Ihe reply of the Rock iRlsnd rsllroad
denying the authority of the commission
and stating that a "station Is not needed.
He then says in part:
The commission will, until finally de
termined otherwise by the supreme court
of the I'nlted Htyten or of Nebraska, as
sume the legality of the constitutional
amendment creating It, and tho. -legislative
enactments supplemental thereto, nl will
continue to exercise tho powers i hitherto
conceded to slate .governments, nvce-esary
to regulate and conlrnl common .carriers
doing business between stations In this
Counsel for the defendant further insists
that this commission under the law has
not the power to cmitrol or regulate the
facilities or a common csrrter, and In
particular Is without power or authority
to compel the location, erection and main
tenance of a nVw depot or station. He
umn that the powers of the commission
were dependent entirely on the act passed
by the legislature.
Ihe constitutional amendment creatine:
this commission provides:
The powers snd duties of such com
mission shsll Include the regulation of
rates, service and general control of com
mon carriers as the legislature may pro
vide by law. But In the absence of specific
legislation, the commission shall exercise
the powers and perform the duties enumer
ated In this section."
That this amendment has become :i rart
of the fundamental law of the state haa
been finally and favorably determined by
our supremo court. Mate vs. Wlnnett, 1M
N. W. Rep. 1113.
In our opinion this amendment must mean
one of two things:
first Klther that this commission nas
only such powers as the legislature msy
see fit to delegate to It. same to he ex
ercised and used In such manner as the
leeiKlature may prescribe, or
Wecond lliat this commission is entrusted
by the people with full and complete power

nd xcrvire. and the exercise or a general
control over common carriers in this state.
limited Only hy legislative enactment ui
to its procedure and the manner In which
It shall hear and determine and enforce
matters within its Jurisdiction.
It the first contention Is the correct one.
what might be the result? The legislature,
in Its wisdom, or in the heat of party strife,
might see fit to enact specific legislation
delegating to this commission specltic pow
ers of a trivial and unimportant nature.
I ir fact, grant to It powers of so insignifi
cant a character as to defeat tho very pur
pose for which the commission was cre
ated. Having In mind the conditions leading up
to the adoption of this amendment, and
the terms of the amendment Itself, vesting,
in the absence of any legislation, the fui'
powers of regulation and general control
of common carriers in this commission, we
are convinced that such a construction is
untenable, and that the latter construction
should prevail, and that the power of the
legislature la limited to the prescribing of
the manner, form and procedure under
which the commission may exercise its
power and perform its duties,
That part ot counsel s objection which Is
based on the Insufficiency of the powers
granted by statute therefore becomes Im
That this commission has ample author
ity, under the general grant ot power, to
regulate the services and exercise a general
control over common carriers In this state.
as provided In the constitutional amend
ment, and In pattcular to hear and de
termine complaints of this character, we
believe Is not debatable.
If the location of depots at suitable points.
without unjust discrimination, to meet tho
needs and convenience of the public. Is a
duty which carriers owe to the public, it
Is properly a subject of regulation.
The report then reviews the conditions
existing at T'irverslt,y Place and concludes
with an order for the company to build a
freight and passenger station before July
Barnard Talks of Delegation,
"The information I receive Is that Ne
braska republicans not only favor the
nomination of Secretary Taft, but they
also favor sending to the national con
vention a delegation of guod, strong, re
liable men of wide acquaintance na
tionally to work for his nomination," said
Clyde Barnard, chief clerk of the -house
of representatives last winter and as
sistant chief clerk In several sessions be

of the legislature during the lust tuw
weeks, and the Impression they give rue
Is that the state convention wlil select
the governor, the two senators unci Vic
tor Rosewater as the four delegates-tit-large
to attend the national convention.
Though Senator Burkett has withdrawn
and refuses fo permit his name to be
used as a prospective delegate, I have
heard no opposition on that account to
sending Norrta Brown aa one of the del
egates. Of course the argument that the
honors should be passed around sounds
good at first. But one should consider
that Nebraska, probably more than any
other state, haa adopted the Roosevelt
policies, and by reason uf that is en
titled to attract attention in the conven

on the delegation who are known, so that
the state can wield the influence It should
have. I see no good argument against
sending the men named. That Is what the

November the trouble started In a finger,
which was promptly amputated, but It was
found in a few days thojt the disease had
spread farther up the arm. Another opera

below ihe. elbow. Still the disease was not
checked and finally the arm was removed
Just below the shoulder. Marv Is about 70
years of ago and the shocks of the opera

weakened him so that, the docttirs gave up
hope. He had kept bachelor quarters In his

lives In the west part of the city, where
he was given the best of care. He has
been steadily improving until the other day
he was able to come down town. Taken,
with his age, the number of operations and

Mayor Jim waa given to understand that
his scalp, in the pink of that condition
which Indicates fresh culling, was already
dangling at the end of a Jacksotitan war
bonnet and he said:
"Of course we wanted the good old town
standpat doctrine of 'harmony' to preva'l
among Douglas county democrats, and
Suggested a delegate not too closely affili

the otehr rlubs, but If the Jacksonians
want lo slart something at this time, they
will only get trimmed and trimmed right,
as we would say In the panhandle.
"Bui I am not familiar enough with the
condition of affairs at this time to say
Just what will be done.. Probably 1 will

during my absence."
Dahlmanlsm Real Democracy.
"Do you think the Dahlman Democracy
Is th democracy of Douglas ounty?" the
mayor was naked.
"I certainly do. I know It Is, and when
it comes to a showdow we will overwhelm
the Jacksonians. They will get the worst
of any attempt to stir up feeling In the
matter of selecting delegates. Bur I ho

mayor, will you stand by them even In the
face of critic-Ism from the Jacksonians?"
"I certainly will. I threw myself wide

was elected because my platform was
At this point George Rogers, one of the
candldales for national delegate, rang the
door bell at Mayor Dahlman's residence
and was admitted to tho library. The
mayor remarked that he would have some
thing more lo say about the Jacksonlan
war dance after ho had talked with aome
of his friends, but that the mere beating
of tom-toms and kettle-druma did not mean
scalping and victory for the noisy braves
of the Jacksonians.
Happy Over the Message.
The mayor was In a happy frame of
mind, as ho had Just rend carefully the
special message ot President Roosevelt, In
which, the president confirmed by his offi
cial utterances the Interview which ha ha
with Mayor Dahlman at the White House,
In which the president expressed himself
aa 'being glad that, he had caused a finan
cial flurry, if such a flurry, waa necessary
to put a,, stop to illegitimate banking and
stock gambling. ,
"Tho president certainly said Just what
I told the papers he snld." remarked the
mayor, as he chewed a Joe Cannon black
cigar. "Really, I was never in danger
of going Into the Ananias club, even If
Senator Tillman did doubt th statement
which I made regarding the interview with
President Roosevelt. You -will notice that
the prealdent did not deny the Interview.
I waa never even close to being drafted
Into the famous club."
Without a moment's warning Mayor
"Jim" Jumped headlong into a discussion
of the Sioux City incident, by which he
added several hundred columns of "news
paperlety" to his already good sized col
lection and was escorted from the meeting
of the Missouri River Navigation congress
by the officer In charge.
flakes Him Lanajh Yet.
"You know I have to laugh every time
I think of that stunt at Sioux City."
said the mayor with a ringing laugh.
"I never knew that fellow who came down
the aisle with a broad smile and said
'You better get out of here" was an offi

The mayor said he thought Sheriff E.

him to leave the room, was one of the del

SIMPLE LIFE FOR THAW

Reside that ef thy
MATTEAWAN. N. Y., Feb. ?.-Harry K.
Thaw began today the routine of a simple
life, which, tho authorities at the slate
hospital for the criminal Insane say, will
make his long stay In the Tombs prison In
J'ew York City seem like the height of
gaiety In comparison. The new patient In
the obseivatlon ward slept soundly last
night, the presence of the fifty other men
In the dormitory not giving him the slight
est concern. It was after the usual retiring
hour when Thaw reached the hospital last
night and he Immediately wont to bed. He
had enjoyed Ihe trip from New York with
his counsel, "as well as the diner at the
hotel In Flshklll Landing with his rounncl
and ono or two newspaper friends. Al
though the two deputies who accompanied
him were guests at the dinner, there wss
no suggestion of prison or asylum restric
tion during the repast and Thaw, found
the occasion much to hlsllking. He arose
this morning at 6 o'clock and ate a hearty
breakfast at the "Knife and Fork table."
Only fifty-four men of the more than 700
In the Institution are allowed this privilege,
the others being restricted to spoons. Thaw
seemed much refreshed from Ills sound
sleep and declared he needed the rest after
tho trying hours of Friday night and
Saturday, while the jury was but and seem
ingly unabl" t reach a verdict. About 8"l
men were In the main dining room when
Thaw reached U)o breakfast table today
and he wns'lhe center of attention. The
-novelly of the noted patient's presence had
not worn off by dinner time and he was
compelled again to cat under tho scrutiny
of many eyes. No arrungementa for spe
cially prepured meals having yet been made
for hint. Thaw shared tho hospital fare
; with all the others. Ills dinner included
roast pork, potatoes, Bauer kruut, bread,
butter and coffee.
At S p. m. Thaw attended divine services
in the hospital auditorium or theater, con
ducted by the Rev. Harry Sheldon, pastor
of the Flshklll Landing Methodist Episco
pal church. One hundred r'lp"tg wero
present and Tha whad expressed a desire to
attend. 1'nless patients cspeclally request
It. they do not attend the Sunday religious
services, whici ore conducted by ministers
of various denominations.
During tho iiuy Thaw declared to one
of the attendants that he probably would
not be In the hospital -more than one week.
He aald his lawyer wouid sue out
writ of habeas corpus lii his behalf and j
he was sure he would bo allowed ins lib
erty as tho result of a hearing In court
or an Inquiry before a commission.
Thaw brought a largo sura of money
with, him to the hospital, but finding ho
would not bo allowed Its custody, hand d
It to a newspaper man, who turned It
over to his counsel. During the week
provision will be made by the family for
special meats and table delicacies for
Thaw, the money being placed In the
hands of the attorneys.
At 6 o'clock this afternoon Dr. Biitlon
D. Evans of Morris Plains, N. J., und
Dr. Smith Ely Jelllffe of New York,
alienist, arrived at the hospital. They
were employed . by the defense In both
trials of Harry K. Thaw and. while both
evaded -questions regarding' their presence
here. It Is said they came at the Instiga
tion of Mrs. William Thaw to examine
her son and be prepared with evidence
when habeas corpus proceedings are
brought up to liberate him.
"We Just had a Sunday off," said Dr.
Evans, who declared at the first trial
that Thaw had a "brain storm," "so we
came 'up to Bee Harry-"
