LINCOLN, Dec. 28 (Special.) The action
of the late democratic legislature In taking
from the, control of the State Board of
Public Lands and Buildings the Home for
the Friendless and placing it under the
control of a governor appointed board, and
at the same time changing its name to the
State Public school, has so far proven a
vi ry costly piece of legislation. The report
of the finances of the Institution for., the
six months from June 1 to November 30
of this year, which was made public today
In the governor's office, shows that It has
cost the state for its maintenance JK1.20
per capita. For the same period last year
the per capita cost was $94.52. It is claimed.
however, that this per capita will be re
duced when credit Is given lor meals fur

cording to a comparison of the reports for
the two periods appears to be . up against
a good sized deficit. The per capita cost
of Its maintenance for the six months Just
ended was J113.64 against $103.71. During
the six months this Institution has spent
for maintenance, employes' wages and of
ficers' salaries a total of $37,500. The bal
ance of the appropriation for this purpose
ror tne twenty-two months Is $120,242, allow
ing the expenditure of $6,4fi6 monthly. The
Institution has Spent $6,250 a month during
the last six months.
The per capita cost of the maintenance
of the Lincoln insane asylum for the last
six months, was $1)2.30 against a per capita
cost for the same period in 1908 of $86.30.
The report filed shows that thirty-five
escaped during the six months.
The report of the soldiers' home at Mll
ford had to bo returned for corrections,
while the boys' Industrial school at Kear
ney has as yet made no report.
The per cent of the maintenance fund on
hand In each Institution Is as follows:
Hastings asylum, 70H; Lincoln asylum, 66;
Norfolk asylum, 74'4, soldiers' home at
Grand Island, 634; Institute for the deaf,
72V; institute for the feeble minded,
industrial home at Milford, 76; Industrial
school at Geneva, 68; state school, 61;
penitentiary, 62 per cent.
One third of the blennlum has passed and
to come out with the appropriation the
Institutions should have on hand ' two
thirds of the aproprlations, but Inasmuch
as the expenditures have been for the sum
mer months there should, in the opinion of
the board, be more than two-thirds of the
appropriations on hand at this time.
