The resignation of Tr. Stephen W.
Stookey, president of Bellevue college, ts
!n the hands of the executive committee
of the board cf trustees and has been for
some time. The committer has not yet
acted on It ' "
This Information has come to the sur
face: through the discussion following the
action of the Presbyterian synod of Ne
braska In voting to 'me.-ge Hastings and
I3elltvus colleges. No mr.br of the board
or executive committee haa been found,
however, who will discuss It.
Dr. Stookey attended the adjuned meet
ing of the .-nod st Kearney and was In
vited to speak on th plan of the merger,
but. waived the p.lvllege, and co-operated
In the action of the synod. He has since
made a published statement, with evident
deliberation. In which he betrays an un
friendly attitude toward the consolidation
movement, causing his friends much sur
prlso. He traces the history of Bsllevue
from Its founding to the present and re
views the steps In the movement leading
up to the action of the synod. He con
cludes by commending Hastings for Its
aggressiveness and says:
"Will the great and rich city of Omaha
let Hastings take this school ao Valuable
In every way to the higher interests of this
communityT ' .
"Why will not soma cltlsen or aome civic
organization take up this matter, call a
mans meeting, or In aome way, see that
enough money Is provided to carry on the
work of the college this year and suf
ficient encouragemtnt given so that funds
for Its future maintenance may be se
cured. Waiting; for Henry T. Clerk.
The return to the city of Henry yt. Clarke
Is awaited with much Interest. He, as the
founder of Bellevue college, has a claim
on the flfty-aore campus and would, prob
ably, regain' title to It were the college
plant abandoned. The farm, of larger pro
portions. Is clear of any reversible clause.
"It Is certain Mr. Clarke will oppose any
movement contemplating the removal or
abandonment bf BelUvue college,"' said a
member of the board of trustees. ' '
One of the men who has given years of
patient thought and effort to the work of
Bellevue Is Dr. Edwin H. Jenks, pastor
of First Presbyterian church of Omaha
and member bf ths Bellevue board. Of
synod's action he says:
"It Is one step In a big, progressive edu
cational movement. It Is the wisest thing
td do. There certainly could be no de
sire to Injure Bellevue.'"
Asked as to ths finality of synod's ac
tion or authority, Dr. Jenks said:
'"Well," synod orders the two college
merged and th action Is certainly offi
cial." As to dismantling Bellevue 'and abandon
ing the plant, that. Dr. Jenks says. Is a
matter for ths Hastings people to decide.
It is believed, however, that this will
necessarily be done. It Is liable to provoke
some persistent opposition on the part of
Henry T. riark,or 4rr W.- H.Betiief
Bellevue, one of the .trusts .of ths tool-
legs, la quoted . as threatening court pro
cedure to prevent It and says Mr, Clarke
will view the situation as he does.

promising inquiry Into the manner of her
death goes en.' unabated at East Orange,
N. J., where Virginia Ward! aw, her spin
ster aunt, la held a prisoner pending an
Investigation by ths grand jury.
"Sentiment aside," said the chief of po
lice, "there remain th brut facts In this
case, and nothing in -explanation of them
has been offered. We have a girl, found
dead in twelve (nchea of water In a bath
tub, on ths one hand, and on the other, th
woman who last saw her alive but failed
to report her death until twenty-four hours
after it must have been discovered.' Aunt
and niece lived in- the same house; It Is
Incredible that the bath room could have
remained unvisited for that length of time
or that In their closely related life one of
the two oould have been absent ao long
from th house without arousing th anx
iety of the other.' . .
- "The two baslo facts alone are suffi
cient in themselves to 'warrant their pre
sentation to the grand Jury, even if there
were no tangle of Insurance to unravel, no
diagnosis of mal-nutrltlon and hypnosis by
a reputable physician, no duplication of
wills and no attempted purchase of chloro
form to 'kill oats.'. "
Mayor Cardwell of East Orange Issued
an order this afternoon that Mrs. Caroline
Martin, mother of Mrs. Ocey Snead, be

said, would be conveyed Into seclusion tonight.
TO introduce fine materials, clean
