LINCOLN. May l.-t Special.; It has come
t last. Governor "Mullenbeiger" has de
clareil his Independence and tin- Mullen will
be stricken from his name nnd the "fllial
len" will he restored. All uf which.
ever, depends tiKin what happens when Hir
Arthur rrturns to Lincoln. Anj how, Gov
ernor Shalletiherger announced this morn
ing that Mrs. llRimah Kelley of Omaha
had been appointed by Superintendent
Woodard of the Lincoln asylum to take the
plsce made vacant by the discharge of Jllsa
Meatrlce McOinnls, who secured her place
Upon the recommendation of Overlord Mul
len. Miss McGlnnis la distantly related to
The action of the governor In upholding
the edict of the superintendent has all the
appearance of the beginning of the end of
the house of Mullen so far aa the overlord
business la concerned around the executive
office. And the overthrow of Mullen would
be ln keeping with the official acts of the
executive. First there came the throw
down of the democrta of Omaha who
elected him by the signing of the g o'clock
losing law; now cornea the Icy mlt for one
of Arthur Mullen's relatives, when Mullen
himself will not deny that he furnished the
bralna and the Inspiration fur most of the
work of the late legislature and Is the chief
dvlser of the executive. But nm before
the house of Mullen began to crumble, the
governor permitted Chria Gnienther'a rec
ommendation regarding a legislative act to
go unheeded. And Gruenther Is the one
man Who atood by Sballenberger when Tom
Allen and Mullen had no Idea he could be
elected and when both were breaking their
backs for Bryan and permitting the Shal
lenberger fight to go by default.
In the meantime, out at the Lincoln asy
lum, vouchers are coming In to the secre
tary of Stat endorsed by the assistant
superintendent without the signature of the
superintendent, which ln time. If allowed
to atand. will cause another nice scrap be
tween the two.
Price Claims the Idea.
And now friends of Viillnm B. Price,
late defeated democratic candidate for
atate auditor are wrathy at Mr. Hi. van and
hla Commoner. For the simple reason
Itryan had taken unto himself very calmly
Mr. Price's latest platform and on this
he expects to tide Into the good graces or
the temperance element of the democratic
While the Commoner Is advocating an !
amendment lu the tariff bill prohibiting the
Issuance of a government license ln a dry
territory, as Its own guod and original
Idea, Mr. Price used that same thing In a j
plank in his platform when he had an
Idea lie was going to run for congress In-
stead of for state auditor. That was the
platform on which Mr. Price expected to j
get hla votes. Why Mr. Bryan failed to j three or four reel high on which will be

The university is getting ready to spend
I.Vt.Onn for the equipment nf the new en
gineering building. A complete equipment
is planned for a wood-working laboratory
and additional machinery will be purchased
for the foundry. Few addition will be
made to the equipment now used In the
forging laboratory, but a number of new
machines will be put In the machine tool
rorm. A new Corliss 13i)-horse power en
gine will be Installed for mechanical en
gineering students, and this will be of such
special design as 'to permit a wide range
of experiments. A 2-horse power gas pro
ducer and producer gaa engine will also be
a part of the new equipment. Two turbine
pumps will be bought Tor use in the hy
drajlloa experiments. Besides these larger
plecca of apparatus there will be a vast
number of minor parts and testing facili
ties. An artist'c fountain of rough-hewn stone
will he the gift of the class of IH09 to the
university. The fountain will be placed on
the university campus midway between the
library and the administration building.
It will probably be ready within a week.
The gift of the graduating class Is In ac
cordance with the, custom pursued for sev
eral years past by senior classes of the
university, l-ast year's graduates donated
a life-size cast of Demosthenes for the ro
tundn of the temple. Other clusses in the
past have given a marble dial for the cam-
P stone seat and lige mementoes. The
gift of the 1909 graduates will excel tn cost
that of any previous clnss, rjtining well
above tlw). The fountain will be some six
fet in diameter, and It will be located just
north of the sun-dial In the center of the
