Hereafter the Nebraska university will
not have to go to the legislature to get
that body to appropriate the money given
by the general government to the Institu
tion. Under a recent deelelon of the su
preme court it was held that thla money
ahould be available for th ua of the
school upon Its receipt by the state treas
urer, without waiting for any action on
the part of the legislature.
Heretofore the money from the general
government has been appropriated by the
state before It could be taken out of the
treaeury by the regents.
Judge W. B. Rose filed a vlgomus dis
senting opinion l.n the esse, holding that
no money ahould be taken out of the treas
ury unless It had been appropriated by the
legislature In accordance with the pro
visions of the constitution, but th other
judges, Chief Justice Reeee taking no part,
opposed the decision of Judge Roe.
A a result of this decision It will not
be necessary for the regents tn explain to
the legislature Just bow much money they
get from the government, and It la be
lieved thla will not tend to make legisla
tures cnore liberal with the school.
Several membera of the late legialature
expressed 'themselves In favor of a direct
appropriation for the university Instead of
the 1-mlll levy, and It Is Very probable
an effort will be made during the next two
years to make this quite an Issue. This
would enable the people to know exactly

RESEARCH I.V GERMANY.
Government Methods of Promotion
In Germany the universities are under
the control of .the government. Therefore,
the German government, searching among
the studenta of the univeritlea. snd finding
the keenest and brightest Intellects dis
posed to the study of medicine, both as a
science and aa a profession, Is able to take
these young men and establish them In
professorships, where there is no anxiety
a to the meana of livelihood.
An anecdote, related by a correspondent
of the Philadelphia Ledger, will, perhaps,
best Illustrate this feature of the relation
of the German government to the univeri
tlea. When the organization of the Johns
Hopkins university was being perfected, It
was the special desire to secure as pro-.
feasors some of the foremost pathologists
of Germany. Representatives of the Johns
HOpklns university went to Germany with
what were presumed to be tempting and
Irresistible Invitations. They offered as
much aa 110.000 a year salary, and In one
instance $15,000 a year, to pathologlata who
are of distinction In Germany, hoping
thereby to bring tlfem to the Johna Hop
kins university. But It was soon discovered
that no money offer could tempt them.
They received directly from the govern
ment salaries sufficient for comfortable
support, with assurance that, when they
were compelled to lay down active work a
pension for life would be paid them. They
were therefore free from any distraction or
anxiety respecting Income, being for that
reason able- to devote their entire working
time to their professional opportunities and
One of.theae professors, having declined
an offer of SIS.OOO salary, ssid that In the
United States was a young man of high
talent and great acquirement who waa
abundantly qualified for a profeaaorahlp of
that kind. They knew him because he had
atudled In Germany. He waa Dr. Willltm
H. Welch. And upon that recommendation
thla foremost of American biologists was
called to hla authoritative association with
Johna Hopkins university.
FRESH AIR IN SCHOOLS.
Why Not Practically Illustrate Les
sons In Hyarlen.
With all the theoretical knowledge pre-
aumed to be In possession of the world
today, relative to the merits of fresh air,
saya the New York Tribune, an astonish
ing number of persona seem to be very
much afraid of It. If thla apparent Ignor
ance were confined to thoae whoae knowl
edge of the laws of health It might pardon
ably be considered rudimentary, the sur
prise would not be so great, but It Is mor
than atrange that so msny well Informed
cltisens take special pains to keep the fresh
air out of their living rooms, and, particu
larly out of sleeping rooms.
It might be presumed that In the schools,
at least, proper attention would be paid
to so Important a subject, yet. If we are
to bel'eve Dr. Luther Gullck and be prob
ably would have little difficulty In prov
ing the general connection In two-thirds
of the schools of the country the child
ren are sitting In rooms the windows of
which are nailed shut. In classrooms full
of foul air teachers are Instructing pupils
in physiology and hygiene, explaining to
them the merits of that wonderful natural
remedy, oxygen, and then, perhaps, won

that they seem unable to grasp a simple

VIRGINIA NEGRO SCHOOLS.
Scarcity of Competent Teacher a
One of the state examlnera eatimates
that at leaat one-half of the colored tetch
era of Virginia are unltcenaed emergency
teachers. This condition has made a very
unfavorable Impression upon the board of
examiners, reports the Southern Work
man. Some are advocating separate exam-
lnatlona and lower grade certificates to les
sen the clerical work of the examiners and
at the same time secure more licensed col
ored teachera. No serioua distinction haa
yet fceen made between the white and col
ored teachera to certificates; but we
predict that unleaa there are signs of Im
provement such a course will be taken In
the near future.
What obtains In Virginia 'no holds
throughout the south. In many cases to an
even more deplorable extent. The educa
tion of the colored people in the south has
not kept pace with that of the white peo
ple. The lines of divergence are widening
more and more. An absolutely double sys
tem In every way is likely to be adopted,
unless steps are taken to properly prepare
more colored teachers. The day has come
when the colored people themselves must
begin to shoulder their burdena and plan
for their own educational betterment In
the public schools; but they can do little
unless public sentiment In the states awak
ens to the fact that even the five grades
now taught In the majority of the colored
schools cannot be maintained unleaa teach
era can be prepared to teach them. The
supply of teachers for rural schools In other
parts of the country cornea largely from
the high schools. Better equipped primary
schools and more high achools with normal
training classes for colored pupils would
go ftr toward removing the present diffi
culty. Colorado Col I e sre.

HEROIC STATUE OF INGERSOLL
Memorial af Famaaa Orator tn Be
Reared tn HI Horn
Tribute to the memory to Colonel Robert
G. Ingrrsoll Is to be paid by the erection
In Peoria, 111., of a statue of him In bronso
for which the large model has Juat been
completed by Mr. Frederick K. Tricbel, a
sculptor of New York.
Colonel Ingersoll lived for many years
in Propria and It was while he was prafe
tlclng aa a lawyer there that attention waa
firat drawn to hla oratorical powera. On ac
count of hi genial nature he was exceed
ingly popular In the place, where he was
long a resident. The project to erect a
memorial to him was broached as far back
as 1899, shortly after his sudden death at
Dobbs Ferry, N. Y.. snd the aasoctatton
having It In hand haa at last been aole to
see Its plans neir realisation.
Mr. Triebel knew Colo nil Ingersoll Well,
having lived In Peoria at the same time,
his choice ss sculptor being therefore pe
culiarly appropriate. The prims mover In
the erection of the memorial la Mr. K. T.
Baldwin, president of the Ingeraoll Monu
Tha atatua ia to be placed in Glen Oak
park amid sylvan aurroundlnga, for Colonel
Ingeraoll waa diatlnguiahed by hla love of
nature. The poae Is one whlrh Colonel
Ingersoll often assumed In his lectures, and
conveys the Impression of the keen mind
and the Incisive wit which' animated him,
combined with an unconscious grace. Life
long rriends of the colonel say that the
likeness Is an excellent one. The statue la
of heroic slxe, and when cast In metal will
represent an outlay of 110.000. .The com
mittee will also arrange for a pedestal.
On account of hla peraonal association
with the subject, Mr. Tricbel, the sculptor,
has been especially Interested In the work.
He haa had many Important commissions,
and waa In 190S elected an academician ot
merit of the Royal academy of San Lucca.
Robert Green Ingersoll, to whom after
ten years this monument Is to' be reared,
was once the center of a storm of discus
sion and was often vehemently attacked
on account of hla assaults upon retlglou
beliefs. Of late years the bltterncas of
controversy has been largely forgotten, and
he haa been spoken of by many with af
fectionate regard on account of his kindly
nature and his many acta of unobtrusive
charity. New York Herald.
